003.068 Without doubt,among men, the nearest of kin to Abraham, are those who follow him, as arealso this Apostle and those who believe: AndGod is the Protector of those who have faith.
003.069 It is the wish of a section of the People of the Book to lead you astray. But they shall lead astray (Not you), but themselves, and they do not perceive!
003.070 Ye People of the Book! Why reject ye the Signs of God, of which ye are (Yourselves) witnesses?
003.071 Ye People of the Book! Why do ye clothe Truth with falsehood, and conceal the Truth, while ye have knowledge?
003.072 A section of the People of the Book say: "Believe in the morning what is revealed to the believers, but reject it at the end of the day; perchance they may (themselves) Turn back;
003.073 "And believe no one unless he follows your religion." Say: "True guidance is the Guidance of God: (Fear ye) Lest a revelation be sent to someone (else) Like unto that which was sent unto you? or that those (Receiving such revelation) should engage you in argument before your Lord?" Say: "All bounties are in the hand of God: He granteth them to whom He pleaseth: And God careth for all, and He knoweth all things."
003.074 For His Mercy He specially chooseth whom He pleaseth; forGod is the Lord of bounties unbounded. 003.075 Among the People of the Book are some who, if entrusted with a hoardof gold, will (readily) pay it back; others, who, if entrusted witha single silver coin, will not repay it unless thou constantly stoodest demanding, because, they say,"there is no call on us (to keep faith) with these ignorant (Pagans)." but they tella lie against God, and (well) they know it.
003.076 Nay.- Those that keep their plighted faith and act aright,-verily God loves those who act aright.
003.077 As for those who sell the faith theyowe to God and their own plighted word for a small price, they shallhave no portion in the Hereafter: Nor will God deign to) speak to them or look at them on the Day of Judgment, nor will He cleanse them (of sin): They shall have a grievous penalty.
003.078 There is among them a section who distort the Book with their tongues: (Asthey read) you would think it is a part of the Book, but it is no part of the Book; and they say, "That is from God," but it is not fromGod: It is they who tell a lie against God, and (well) they know it!
003.079 It is not (possible) that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, andthe prophetic office, should say to people:"Be ye my worshippersrather than God's": on the contrary (He wouldsay) "Be ye worshippers of Him Who is truly the Cherisher of all: For ye have taught the Book and ye have studied it earnestly."
003.080 Nor would he instruct you to take angels and prophets for Lords and patrons. What! would he bid youto unbelief after ye have bowed your will (To God in Islam)? 003.081 Behold! God took the covenant of the prophets, saying: "Igive you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you an apostle, confirming what is with you; do ye believein him and render him help." God said: "Do ye agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?" They said: "We agree." He said: "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses."
003.082 If any turn back after this, they are perverted transgressors.
003.083 Do they seek for other than the Religion of God?-while all creatures in the heavens and on earth have, willing or unwilling, bowed to HisWill (Accepted Islam), and to Him shall they all be brought back.
003.084 Say: "We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses,Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to God do we bow our will(in Islam)."
003.085 If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to God), never will it be accepted of him; and inthe Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good).
