In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

1 Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, were not going to depart (from their ways) until there should come to them Clear Evidence,-

2 An apostle from Allah, rehearsing scriptures kept pure and holy:

3 Wherein are laws (or decrees) right and straight.

4 Nor did the People of the Book make schisms, until after there came to them Clear Evidence.

5 And they have been commanded no more than this: To worship Allah, offering Him sincere devotion, being true (in faith); to establish regular prayer; and to practise regular charity; and that is the Religion Right and Straight.

6 Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.C

7 Those who have faith and do righteous deeds,- they are the best of creatures.

8 Their reward is with Allah: Gardens of Eternity, beneath which rivers flow; they will dwell therein for ever; Allah well pleased with them, and they with Him: all this for such as fear their Lord and Cherisher.
