It is He who sent to the unlettered [people] an apostle from among themselves, to recite to them His signs, to purify them, and to teach them the Book and wisdom, and earlier they had indeed been in manifest error. Surah Juma (62)

وَمَا كُنْتَ تَتْلُو مِنْ قَبْلِهِ مِنْ كِتَابٍ وَلَا تَخُطُّهُ بِيَمِينِكَ ۖ إِذًا لَارْتَابَ الْمُبْطِلُونَ

 Sarfah miracle

 وإن كنتم في ريب مما نزلنا على عبدنا فاتوا بسورة من مثله و ادعوا شركائكم من دون الله إن كنتم صادقين

And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down to Our servant, then produce a chapter like it, and call on your associates besides God, if you are truthful.

أم يقولون افتراه قل فأتوا بعشر سور مثله مفتريات وادعوا من استطعتم من دون الله إن كنتم صادقين.

Or do they say, “He forged it?” Say, “Then bring ten chapters like it forged, and call upon whomever you can besides God, if you are truthful.” Hood 14 Yunus 39

 قل لئن اجتمعت الإنس والجن على أن يأتوا بمثل هذا القرآن لا يأتون بمثله ولو كان بعضهم لبعض ظهيرا

Say, if mankind and jinn were to unite to produce the like of this Qur’an, they would not produce the like of it, even if they backed each other up.

 إن العزة لله جميعا 

إن القوة لله جميعا

 وبشر الصابرين الذين اذا اصابتهم مصيبه قالوا انا لله وانا اليه راجعون

ولنبلونكم بشيء من الخوف والجوع ونقص من الأموال والأنفس وبشر الصابرين

All glory belongs to God

All power belongs to God

We have ordained death among you, and We are not to be preceded.

We have ordained death among you, and We are not to be outmaneuvered
