Alexander Ross, The Alcoran of Mahomet, translated out of Arabick into French, by the Sieur Du Ryer, Lord of Malezair, and resident for the French king, at Alexandria. And newly Englished, for the satisfaction of all that desire to look into the Turkish vanities. (1649)

incredulous; when it was told you that the promises of God, and the day of Judgment were indubitable; ye said that it was but an opinion, and that ye believe it not; in the end ye shall acknowledg your offence, and shall suffer the pains that ye despised; God shall say unto them at the day of Judgment, I have this day forgotten you, as ye forgot the coming of this day, the fire of hell shall be your habitation, none shall deliver you, because ye derided my Law, and waxed proud with the riches of the earth. They shall never get out of this fire, neither be able to repent. Praise be to God, Lord of the heavens and earth, glory is due to him in all places, he is omnipotent and wise.

CHAP. XLVI.

The Chapter of Hecaf, containing thirty five Verses, written at Mecca.

Hecaf is a Valley in the Country of Liemen, upon the frontiers of Arabia. See Gelaldin, and the Book entituled, Kitab el Tenoir.

IN the Name of God, gracious and merciful: God is most prudent and wise. This Book was sent by the Omnipotent and wise. We created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, for a sign of our Omnipotency and Unity, and appointed to every thing a prefixed and limited time. If the Infidels depart from that which hath been preached to them, Say unto them, have ye considered the Idols that ye adore? shew me what they have created on earth, are they God’s companions in the creation of the heavens? bring me a Book sent from heaven before the Alcoran, that containeth like it, what remained of the doctrine of our Predecessors, we shall see if ye be true: who is more seduced then he that worshippeth things that can neither hear his prayers, nor protect him at the day of Judgment? That day shall the Infidels be enemies to each
