Or of him who, when passing by a town the roofs of which had caved in, exclaimed, “How will God restore it to life after its destruction?” Thereupon God caused him to die, and after a hundred years, brought him back to life. God asked, “How long have you remained in this state?” He answered, “I have remained a day or part of a day.” God said, “No, you have remained in this state for a hundred years. Now look at your food and your drink; they have not rotted. Look at your ass. We will make you a sign to mankind. Look at the bones — how We set them together, then clothe them with flesh!” When it had all become clear to him, he said, “Now I know that God has power over all things.”

Or the like of him (Uzair) who passed by a town, and it had fallen down upon its roofs; he said: When will Allah give it life after its death? So Allah caused him to die for a hundred years, then raised him to life. He said: How long have you tarried? He said: I have tarried a day, or a part of a day. Said He: Nay! you have tarried a hundred years; then look at your food and drink– years have not passed over it; and look at your ass; and that We may make you a sign to men, and look at the bones, how We set them together, then clothed them with flesh; so when it became clear to him, he said: I know that Allah has power over all things.

(Or have you heard) of the one who, on passing through an empty and ruined town, said, “When will God bring it to life?” God caused him to die and brought him back to life after a hundred years and then asked him, “How long have you been here?” He replied, “One day or part of a day.” The Lord said, “No, you have been here for one hundred years. Look at your food and drink. They have not yet decayed. But look at your donkey and its bones. To make your case evidence (of the Truth) for the people, see how we bring the bones together and cover them with flesh.” When he learned the whole story, he said, “Now I know that God has power over all things.”

Or [consider such an example] as the one who passed by a township which had fallen into ruin. He said, “How will Allah bring this to life after its death?” So Allah caused him to die for a hundred years; then He revived him. He said, “How long have you remained?” The man said, “I have remained a day or part of a day.” He said, “Rather, you have remained one hundred years. Look at your food and your drink; it has not changed with time. And look at your donkey; and We will make you a sign for the people. And look at the bones [of this donkey] – how We raise them and then We cover them with flesh.” And when it became clear to him, he said, “I know that Allah is over all things competent.”

Or take the case of the one who passed by a township that had fallen down upon its roofs. He exclaimed, “How shall Allah bring back to life this township that has become dead?” At this Allah caused him to die and he lay dead for a hundred years. Then Allah brought him back to life and asked him, “How long have you lain here?” He answered. “I might have lain here for a day or a few hours.” Allah said, “Nay, you have been lying here in this state for a hundred years: now, just have a look at your food and your drink; they have not become spoiled in the least. Then have a look at your ass, (and see that his very bones have become rotten) and We have done this in order to make you a Sign for the people. Look, how We raise up the skeleton and set the bones (of the ass) and cover them with flesh and (put breath of life into them).” And when the Reality became manifest to him, he said, “I know that Allah has power over everything.”

We shall make you a warning for men. And regard the bones, how We raise them and clothe them with flesh.” When this became clear to him, the man said: “Indeed God has power over all things.”
