Say: O Mohammad Salla Allahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, “Whose is the Fostering of the seven skies (higher levels) and the Lordship of the great throne (of the universe)?”. They will say, “Allahs.” Say, “Will you not then guard (against evil)?” (Al Quran, Surah Al Muminun, Chapter 23: Verses 86-87)

Following on from Chapter 23: Verse 80 (See The Quran Asks 23-80 for details), the above verses shall be understood in context with the following verses:

23-81: No! they say the like of that which the ancients said.
23-82: They say, “What! when we are dead and become (part of the) soil and bones, will we really be raised?
23-83: We are promised this, we and our forefathers earlier, these are nothing but stories of the ancient.”
23-84: Say, “Whose is the earth and whoever is therein, if you know?”
23-85: They will say, “Allahs.” Say, “Will you not then be mindful?”

23-87: They will say, “Allahs.” Say, “Will you not then guard (against evil)?”
23-88: Say, “Who is it in Whose hand is the control of everything and He protects and there is no (one who can) protect against Him, if you know?”
23-89: They will say, “(This is also in) Allahs (control).” Say, “Then how are you under the influence of magic?”
23-90: No! We have brought to them the truth but they are certainly liars.

Summarized Commentary:
Inspite of accepting the powers and the marvelous works of Allah (SWT) there are some people who do not believe that He has the power to recreate them after their death.
