Disbelievers ask for Miracles, Allah's Response to Them

Allah says that the idolators said,

[لَوْلاَ]
(Why is not), meaning, there should be,

[أُنزِلَ عَلَيْهِ ءَايَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِ]
(a sign sent down to him from his Lord) The idolators also said,

[فَلْيَأْتِنَا بِـَايَةٍ كَمَآ أُرْسِلَ الاٌّوَّلُونَ]
(Let him then bring us an Ayah like the ones (Prophets) that were sent before (with signs)!) [21:5] We mentioned this subject several times before and stated that Allah is able to bring them what they wanted. There is a Hadith which mentions that the idolators asked the Prophet to turn Mount As-Safa into gold and, they also asked him for a spring to gush forth for them and to remove the mountains from around Makkah and replace them with green fields and gardens. Allah revealed to His Messenger : "If You wish, O Muhammad, I will give them what they asked for. However, if they disbelieve thereafter, I will punish them with a punishment that I did not punish any among the `Alamin (mankind and the Jinns). Or, if you wish, I will open for them the door to repentance and mercy.'' The Prophet said,
