أَمْ يَقُولُونَ ٱفْتَرَاهُ قُلْ فَأْتُواْ بِسُورَةٍ مِّثْلِهِ وَٱدْعُواْ مَنِ ٱسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ
٣٨
-Yûnus ( يونس )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Or do they say, ‘He has invented it’?, Muhammad (s) has invented it. Say: ‘Then bring a sūra like it, in terms of the clarity and the rhetorical excellence of its language, by way of invention, for you are eloquent speakers of Arabic like me; and call upon whom you can, for help in this [matter], besides God, that is, other than Him, if you are truthful’, in [saying] that this is an invention. But they were not able to do this.
