002.095 But they will never seek for death, on account of the (sins) which their hands have sent on before them. And God is well-acquainted withthe wrong-doers .
002.096 Thou wilt indeed find them, of allpeople, most greedy oflife,-even more than the idolaters: Each one of them wishes He could be given a life of a thousand years: But the grant of such life will not save him from (due) punishment. For God sees well all that they do.
002.097 Say: Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel-for he brings down the(revelation) to thy heart by God's will, a confirmation of what went before, and guidance and glad tidings for those who believe,-
002.098 Whoever is an enemy to God and His angels and apostles, toGabriel and Michael,- Lo!God is an enemy to those who reject Faith.
002.099 We have sent down to thee ManifestSigns (ayat); and none reject them but those who are perverse.
002.100 Is it not (the case) that every time they make a Covenant,some party among them throw it aside?- Nay, Most of them are faithless. 002.101 And when there came to them anapostle from God, confirming what was with them, a Party of the People of the Book threw away the Book of God behind their backs, as if (it had been something) they did not know!
002.102 They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers were, notSolomon, but the evil ones, teaching men magic, and such things as came down at Babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (such things) without saying:"We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme." They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by God's permission. And they learned whatharmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would have no share inthe happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls, if they but knew!
002.103 If they had kept their Faith and guarded themselves from evil, far better had been the reward from their Lord, if theybut knew!
002.104 O ye of Faith! Say not (to the Apostle) words of ambiguous import, but words of respect; and hearken (to him): To those without Faith is a grievous punishment. 002.105 It is never the wish of those without Faith among the Peopleof the Book, nor of thePagans, that anything good should come down to you from yourLord. But God will choose for His special Mercy whom He will - for God is Lord of graceabounding.
002.106 None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not thatGod Hath power over all things?
002.107 Knowest thou not that to God belongeth the dominionof the heavens and the earth? And besidesHim ye have neither patron nor helper.
002.108 Would ye question your Apostle as Moses was questioned of old? but whoever changeth from Faith to Unbelief, Hath strayed without doubt from the even way.
002.109 Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they could Turn you (people)back to infidelity after ye have believed, from selfish envy, after the Truth hath become Manifest unto them: But forgive and overlook, till God accomplishes His purpose; for God Hath power over all things.
002.110 And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: And whatever good yesend forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with God: for God sees Well all that ye do. 002.111 And they say:"None shall enter Paradise unless he be aJew or a Christian." Those are their (vain) desires. Say: "Produce your proof if ye are truthful."
002.112 Nay,-whoever submits His whole selfto God and is a doer of good,- He will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
002.113 The Jews say:"The Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say: "The Jews have naught (to stand) upon." Yet they (profess to) study the (same) Book. Like unto their word is what those say who know not; but God will judge between them in their quarrel on the Day of Judgment.
002.114 And who is more unjust than he who forbids that in places for the worship of God, His name should be celebrated?-whose zeal is (in fact) to ruin them? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them except in fear. For them there is nothing but disgrace in this world, and in the world to come, an exceeding torment.
002.115 To God belong the East and the West:Whithersoever ye turn,there is God's countenance. For God isall-Embracing, all-Knowing.
002.116 They say: "Godhath begotten a son":Glory be to Him.-Nay, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: everything renders worship to Him.
002.117 To Him is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth:When He decreeth a matter, He saith to it: "Be," and it is.
002.118 Say those without knowledge:"Why speaketh not God unto us? Or why cometh not unto us a Sign?" So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike. We have indeed made clear the Signs unto any people who hold firmly to Faith (in their hearts).
002.119 Verily, We have sent thee in truthas a bearer of glad tidings and a warner: But of thee no question shall be askedof the Companions of the Blazing Fire.
002.120 Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: "The Guidance of God,-that is the (only) Guidance." Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor Helper against God.
002.121 Those to whom We have sent the Book study it as it should be studied: They are the ones that believe therein: Those who reject faiththerein,- the loss is their own.
002.122 O Children of Israel! call to mind the special favour which I bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you to all others (for My Message).
002.123 Then guard yourselves against a Day when one soul shall not avail another, nor shall compensationbe accepted from her nor shall intercession profit her nor shall anyone be helped (from outside).
002.124 And rememberthat Abraham was tried by his Lord with certain Commands, which he fulfilled: He said: "I will make thee an Imam to the Nations." He pleaded:"And also (Imams) from my offspring!" Heanswered: "But My Promise is not within the reach of evil-doers."
002.125 Remember Wemade the House a place of assembly for men and a place of safety; and take ye the station of Abraham as a place of prayer; and We covenanted with Abraham and Isma'il, that they should sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or use it as a retreat, or bow, or prostrate themselves (therein in prayer).
