005.079 Nor did they (usually) forbid one another the iniquities which they committed:evil indeed were the deeds which they did.
005.080 Thou seest many of them turning in friendship to the Unbelievers. Evil indeed are (the works) which their souls have sent forward before them (with the result), that God's wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide.
005.081 If only they had believed in God, in the Apostle, and in what hath been revealed to him, never would they have takenthem for friends and protectors, but most of them are rebellious wrong-doers.
005.082 Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews andPagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say,"We are Christians": because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.
005.083 And when they listen to the revelation received by the Apostle, thou wilt see their eyes overflowing with tears, for they recognise the truth: they pray: "Our Lord! we believe; write us down among the witnesses.
005.084 "What cause can we have not to believe in God and the truth which has come to us, seeing that we long for our Lord to admit us to the company of the righteous?"
005.085 And for this their prayer hath God rewarded them with gardens, with rivers flowing underneath,- their eternal home. Such is the recompense of those who do good.
005.086 But those whoreject Faith and belie our Signs,- they shall be companions of Hell-fire.
005.087 O ye who believe! make not unlawful the good things which God hath made lawful for you, but commit no excess: for God loveth not those given to excess.
005.088 Eat of the things which God hath provided for you, lawful and good; but fear God, in Whom ye believe.
005.089 God will not callyou to account for what is futile in your oaths, but He will call you to account for your deliberate oaths: for expiation, feed ten indigent persons, on a scale of the average for the food of your families; or clothe them; or give a slave his freedom. If that is beyond your means, fast for three days. That is the expiation for the oaths ye have sworn. But keep to your oaths. Thus doth God make clear to you His signs, that ye may be grateful.
005.090 O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,- of Satan's handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper.
005.091 Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of God, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?
005.092 Obey God, and obey the Apostle, and beware (of evil): if ye do turn back, know ye that it is Our Apostle's duty to proclaim (the message) in the clearest manner. 005.093 On those who believe and do deeds of righteousness thereis no blame for what they ate (in the past), when they guard themselves from evil, and believe, and do deeds of righteousness,- (or) again, guard themselves from evil and believe,- (or) again,guard themselves from evil and do good. For God loveth those who do good.
005.094 O ye who believe! God doth but make a trial of you in alittle matter of game well within reach of game well within reachof your hands and yourlances, that He may test who feareth him unseen: any who transgress thereafter,will have a grievous penalty.
005.095 O ye who believe! Kill not game while in the sacred precincts or in pilgrim garb. If any of you doth so intentionally, the compensation is anoffering, brought to the Ka'ba, of a domestic animal equivalent to the one he killed, as adjudged by two just men among you; or by way of atonement, the feeding of the indigent;or its equivalent in fasts: that he may taste of the penalty ofhis deed. God forgives what is past: for repetition God will exact from him the penalty. For God is Exalted, and Lord of Retribution.
005.096 Lawful to you is the pursuit of water-game and its use for food,- for the benefit of yourselves and those who travel; but forbidden is the pursuit of land-game;- as long as ye are in thesacred precincts or in pilgrim garb. And fear God, to Whom ye shall be gathered back.
005.097 God made the Ka'ba, the Sacred House, an asylum of security for men, as also the Sacred Months, the animals for offerings, and the garlands that mark them: That ye may know that God hath knowledge of what is in the heavens and on earth and that God is well acquainted with allthings.
005.098 Know ye that God is strict in punishment and that God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
