[Yunus 10:98] So if only had there been one dwelling * that believed and its belief would have benefited it - except the nation of Yunus (Jonah)! When they accepted faith, We removed the disgraceful punishment in the life of this world from them, and let them enjoy for a while. (* That was destroyed after being warned.)
[Yunus 10:99] And if your Lord willed, all those who are in the earth - everyone of them - would have accepted faith; so will you (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) force the people until they become Muslims?
[Yunus 10:100] And no soul can accept faith except by the command of Allah; and He sets the punishment upon those who do not have sense.
[Yunus 10:101] Proclaim, "Observe what is in the heavens and the earth"; and the signs and the Noble Messengers do not benefit the people who are not destined to believe.
[Yunus 10:102] So what are they waiting for, except the days similar to the days of those who passed away before them? Say, "Then wait! I too am waiting with you."
[Yunus 10:103] Then We shall save Our Noble Messengers and the believers - this is it; it is incumbent upon Our mercy to save the Muslims.
[Yunus 10:104] Say (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), "O people! If you are in doubt concerning my religion, then (know that) I will never worship those whom you worship instead of Allah - but I worship Allah Who will give you death; and I am commanded to be of the believers."
[Yunus 10:105] "And that ‘Set your face straight * for religion, apart from all others; and never be of those who ascribe partners (to Allah)’." (* Your intention sincerely for religion.)
[Yunus 10:106] "And other than Allah, do not worship that
which cannot benefit you nor cause you harm; then if you do so, you would
be of the unjust." (* Some things like the sun, stars, trees are useful
but they too are created by Allah. Their worship will not benefit - in
fact it is harmful.)
