Verse 11:7

وَ هُوَ الَّذِىۡ خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالۡاَرۡضَ فِىۡ سِتَّةِ اَ يَّامٍ وَّكَانَ عَرۡشُهٗ عَلَى الۡمَآءِ لِيَبۡلُوَكُمۡ اَيُّكُمۡ اَحۡسَنُ عَمَلًا ؕ وَلَٮِٕنۡ قُلۡتَ اِنَّكُمۡ مَّبۡعُوۡثُوۡنَ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِ الۡمَوۡتِ لَيَـقُوۡلَنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡۤا اِنۡ هٰذَاۤ اِلَّا سِحۡرٌ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏

He created the heavens and earth in six stages and established Himself on the Throne of His Almightiness. He has Supreme Control over the origination of life which began in water (21:30). Life is a test for yourselves to see which of you leads a balanced life and is best in conduct. Yet, if you tell them, 'You will be raised again after death,' those in denial will say, 'This is nothing but obvious deception!' [45:24. Six Stages or Eras: 7:54, 10:3, 11:7, 25:59, 50:38, 57:4. See 41:10. 'Sihr' = Magic = Lie = Deception]

Verse 11:8

وَلَٮِٕنۡ اَخَّرۡنَا عَنۡهُمُ الۡعَذَابَ اِلٰٓى اُمَّةٍ مَّعۡدُوۡدَةٍ لَّيَـقُوۡلُنَّ مَا يَحۡبِسُهٗؕ اَلَا يَوۡمَ يَاۡتِيۡهِمۡ لَـيۡسَ مَصۡرُوۡفًا عَنۡهُمۡ وَحَاقَ بِهِمۡ مَّا كَانُوۡا بِهٖ يَسۡتَهۡزِءُوۡنَ‏

And when We delay for them the retribution until after the period of respite, they will say, 'What is keeping it back?' Ah! On the day it actually reaches them, nothing will turn it away from them. And what they mock will completely surround them.

Verse 11:9

وَلَٮِٕنۡ اَذَقۡنَا الۡاِنۡسَانَ مِنَّا رَحۡمَةً ثُمَّ نَزَعۡنٰهَا مِنۡهُ​ۚ اِنَّهٗ لَيَـــُٔوۡسٌ كَفُوۡرٌ‏

Thus it is: If We let the human being taste some of Our grace, and then take it away from him, he abandons all hope, forgetting all gratitude.

Verse 11:10

وَلَٮِٕنۡ اَذَقۡنٰهُ نَـعۡمَآءَ بَعۡدَ ضَرَّآءَ مَسَّتۡهُ لَيَـقُوۡلَنَّ ذَهَبَ السَّيِّاٰتُ عَنِّىۡ​ ؕ اِنَّهٗ لَـفَرِحٌ فَخُوۡرٌۙ‏

But if We let him taste a blessing after adversity had afflicted him, he will say, 'All adversity has gone away from me!' He is exultant, boastful.
