{ أَمِ ٱتَّخَذُوۤاْ آلِهَةً مِّنَ ٱلأَرْضِ هُمْ يُنشِرُونَ }

Or am functions with the meaning of bal ‘nay’ to effect a transition in subject-matter; the hamza is for rhetorical denial have they chosen gods that are from the earth such as stones gold or silver who that is gods who resurrect? who bring the dead back to life? No! Indeed only one who brings the dead back to life can be God.
