Allaah the Elevated mentions His mercy of not sending the miracles that the disbelievers request, that nothing prevents Him from sending them except the fear that they would not believe in them, for if they deny them, their punishment would be near, it would take them without delay, as was the case with the earlier generations who belied the miracles.Amongst the greatest of signs was the one revealed to the people of Thamood, it was a huge, magnificent camel which used to provide for the entire tribe. However they belied this miracle and the torment that Allaah related to us in His Book befell them.
These people likewise, if the greatest of signs were to be shown to them, they would not believe, because what is preventing them from believing is not the concealment of what the Messengers came with, nor is it that it is unclear, whether it is the truth or falsehood. There is indeed a lot of substantial evidence that necessitates the following of guidance for those who are looking for it. So revealing other signs [such as miracles] are similar to it, they would follow the same path regarding them as they did with the evidence, so refraining from sending miracles in this state of theirs is better and more beneficial for them.
Allaah explained elsewhere that there is no need for their request for miracles, because He revealed a miracle that is greater than any other miracle they requested, and that miracle is in this magnificent Qur-aan, it is His saying:
So rebuking them for not being satisfied with this Book and not other miracles shows that it is greater and more magnificent than any other miracle. And it is so, do you not see that it is a clear sign, a magnificent miracle, all of mankind together cannot not produce the likes of it, and it remains, being repeated to be heard by the creation until the hour is established, unlike other miracles at the hands of other Messengers, may the Salaat and Salaam be upon all of them, those miracles have all come to an end.Sa’eed ibn Jubayr said:
