In these verses, the prophet is shown how he would ask people toward their salvation, while they would be inviting him toward evil and away from the message and life of truth.
41. “And O my people! How is it that I call you to salvation while you call me to the Fire!
42. “You invite me to disbelieve in Allah (and in His Oneness), and to join partners in worship with Him of which I have no knowledge; and I invite you to the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving!
