003.086 How shall God Guide those who rejectFaith after they accepted it and bore witness that the Apostle was true and that Clear Signs had come unto them? but God guides not a people unjust.
003.087 Of such the reward is that on them (rests) the curseof God, of His angels, and of all mankind;-
003.088 In that will they dwell; nor will their penalty be lightened, nor respite be (their lot);-
003.089 Except for those that repent (Even) after that, and make amends; for verily God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
003.090 But those whoreject Faith after they accepted it, and then go on adding to their defiance of Faith,- never will their repentance be accepted; for they are those who have (of set purpose) gone astray.
003.091 As to those who reject Faith, and die rejecting,- never would be accepted from any such as much gold as the earthcontains, though they should offer it for ransom. For such is (in store) a penalty grievous, and they will find no helpers.
003.092 By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of thatwhich ye love; and whatever ye give, of a truth God knoweth it well.
003.093 All food was lawful to the Children of Israel, except what Israel Made unlawful for itself, before the Law (of Moses) was revealed. Say: "Bring ye the Law and study it, if ye be men of truth."
003.094 If any, after this, invent a lie and attribute it to God, they are indeed unjust wrong-doers.
003.095 Say: "God speaketh the Truth: follow the religion of Abraham, the sane in faith; he was not of the Pagans." 003.096 The first House (of worship) appointed for men was that at Bakka: Fullof blessing and of guidance for all kinds of beings:
003.097 In it are Signs Manifest; (for example), the Station of Abraham; whoever enters it attains security; Pilgrimage thereto is a duty men owe to God,- those who can afford the journey; but if any deny faith, God stands not in need of any of His creatures.
003.098 Say: "O People of the Book! Why reject ye the Signs of God, when God is Himself witness to all ye do?"
003.099 Say: "O ye People of the Book! Why obstruct ye thosewho believe, from the path of God, Seeking tomake it crooked, while ye were yourselves witnesses (to God's Covenant)? but God is not unmindful of all that ye do."
003.100 O ye who believe! If ye listen to a faction among the People of the Book, they would (indeed) render you apostates after ye have believed!
003.101 And how would ye deny Faith while unto you are rehearsed the Signs of God, and among you Lives the Apostle? Whoever holds firmly to God will be shown a way that is straight.
003.102 O ye who believe! Fear God as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam.
003.103 And hold fast, all together, by the rope which God (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude God's favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth God make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided.
003.104 Let there ariseout of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity. 003.105 Be not like those who are divided amongst themselves and fall into disputations after receiving Clear Signs: For them is a dreadful penalty,-
003.106 On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some faces will be(in the gloom of) black: To those whose faceswill be black, (will be said): "Did ye reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the penalty for rejecting Faith."
003.107 But those whose faces will be (litwith) white,- they will be in (the light of) God's mercy: therein todwell (for ever).
003.108 These are the Signs of God: We rehearse them to theein Truth: And God means no injustice to any of His creatures.
003.109 To God belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: To Him do all questions go back (for decision).
003.110 Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are somewho have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors.
003.111 They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; if they come out to fightyou, they will show you their backs, and nohelp shall they get.
003.112 Shame is pitched over them (Like a tent) wherever they are found, exceptwhen under a covenant (of protection) from God and from men; they draw on themselves wrath from God, and pitched over them is (the tent of) destitution. This because they rejected the Signs of God, and slew the prophets in defiance of right; this because they rebelled and transgressed beyond bounds.
003.113 Not all of themare alike: Of the People of the Book are a portion that stand (Forthe right): They rehearse the Signs of God all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration.
003.114 They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous. 003.115 Of the good that they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for God knoweth well those that do right.
003.116 Those who reject Faith,- neither their possessions nor their (numerous) progeny will avail themaught against God: They will be companions of the Fire,- dwelling therein (for ever).
003.117 What they spend in the life of this(material) world May be likened to a wind which brings a nipping frost: It strikes and destroys the harvest of men who have wronged their own souls: it is not God thathath wronged them, but they wrong themselves.
003.118 O ye who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks: They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin: Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths: What their hearts conceal is far worse. We have made plain to you the Signs, if ye have wisdom.
003.119 Ah! ye are those who love them, but they love you not,-though ye believe in the whole of the Book. When they meet you, they say, "We believe": But when they are alone, they bite off thevery tips of their fingers at you in their rage. Say: "Perish in yourage; God knoweth well all the secrets of the heart."
003.120 If aught that is good befalls you, it grieves them; but if some misfortune overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if ye are constant and do right, not the least harm will their cunning do to you; for God Compasseth round about all that they do.
003.121 Remember that morning Thou didst leave Thy household (early) to post the faithful at their stations for battle: And God heareth and knoweth all things:
003.122 Remember two of your parties Meditated cowardice; but God was their protector, and in God should the faithful (Ever) put their trust.
003.123 God had helpedyou at Badr, when ye were a contemptible little force; then fear God; thus May ye showyour gratitude.
003.124 Remember thou saidst to the Faithful: "Is it not enough for you that God should help you with three thousand angels (Specially) sent down?
003.125 "Yea, - if ye remain firm, and act aright, even if the enemy should rush here on you in hot haste, your Lord wouldhelp you with five thousand angels Making a terrific onslaught.
003.126 God made it but a message of hopefor you, and an assurance to your hearts: (in any case) there is no help except from God. The Exalted, the Wise:
003.127 That He mightcut off a fringe of the Unbelievers or expose them to infamy, and they should then be turned back, frustrated of their purpose.
