In the name of allah the most beneficent and merciful.

Surah 3 - Ali 'Imran - THE FAMILY OF 'IMRAN
003.001 Alif, Lam, Mim.
003.002 God! There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-Subsisting, Eternal.
003.003 It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgementbetween right and wrong).
003.004 Then those who reject Faith in the Signs of God will sufferthe severest penalty, and God is Exalted in Might, Lord of Retribution.
003.005 From God, verily nothing is hidden on earth or in the heavens.
003.006 He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He pleases. There is no god but He,the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
003.007 He it is Who has sent down to theethe Book: In it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except God. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in the Book; thewhole of it is from our Lord:" and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding.
003.008 "Our Lord!" (they say), "Let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us, but grant usmercy from Thine ownPresence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure.
003.009 "Our Lord! Thou art He that will gather mankind Together against a day about which there is no doubt; for God never fails in His promise." 003.010 Those who reject Faith,- neither their possessions nor their (numerous) progeny will avail themaught against God: They are themselves but fuel for the Fire.
003.011 (Their plight will be) no better than that of the people of Pharaoh, and their predecessors: They denied our Signs, and God called them to account for their sins. For God is strict in punishment.
003.012 Say to those who reject Faith: "Soonwill ye be vanquished and gathered together to Hell,-an evil bed indeed (to lie on)!
003.013 "There has already been for you a Sign in the two armies that met (in combat): One was fighting in thecause of God, the other resisting God; these saw with their own eyes Twice their number. But God doth support with His aid whom He pleaseth. In this is a warning for such as have eyes to see."
003.014 Fair in the eyesof men is the love of things they covet: Women and sons; Heaped-up hoards of gold and silver; horses branded (for blood and excellence); and (wealth of) cattle and well-tilled land. Such are the possessions ofthis world's life; but in nearness to God is the best of the goals (To return to).
003.015 Say: Shall I giveyou glad tidings of things Far better than those? For the righteous are Gardens in nearness to their Lord, with rivers flowing beneath; therein is their eternal home; with companions pure (and holy); and the good pleasure of God. For in God's sight are (all) His servants,- 003.016 (Namely), those who say: "Our Lord! we have indeed believed: forgive us, then, our sins, and save us from the agony of the Fire;"-
003.017 Those who show patience, Firmness and self-control; who are true (in word and deed); who worship devoutly; who spend (in the way of God); and who pray for forgiveness in the early hours of the morning.
003.018 There is no god but He: That is thewitness of God, His angels, and those endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice. There is no god but He, the Exalted in Power, the Wise.
003.019 The Religion before God is Islam (submission to His Will): Nor did the Peopleof the Book dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledgehad come to them. Butif any deny the Signs of God, God is swift in calling to account.
003.020 So if they dispute with thee, say:"I have submitted My whole self to God and so have those who follow me." And say tothe People of the Book and to those who are unlearned: "Do ye (also)submit yourselves?" If they do, they are in right guidance, but if they turn back, Thy duty is to convey the Message; and in God's sight are (all) His servants.
