Sura 29
Aya 67
أَوَلَم يَرَوا أَنّا جَعَلنا حَرَمًا آمِنًا وَيُتَخَطَّفُ النّاسُ مِن حَولِهِم ۚ أَفَبِالباطِلِ يُؤمِنونَ وَبِنِعمَةِ اللَّهِ يَكفُرونَ

Yusuf Ali

Do they not then see that We have made a sanctuary secure, and that men are being snatched away from all around them?1 Then, do they believe in that which is vain, and reject the Grace of God.
  • If they want evidences of their folly in the phenomenal world itself, they will see sacred Sanctuaries where God’s Truth abides safely in the midst of the Deluge of broken hopes, disappointed ambitions and unfulfilled plans in the world around. The immediate reference was to the Sanctuary of Mecca and the gradual progress of Islam in the districts surrounding the Quraish in the midst of the trying Meccan period. But the general application holds good for all times and places.
