3b. Ali-Imran (51 to 100)
Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord , so worship Him ., But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief , Our Lord! We believe in that which Thou hast revealed …
Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord , so worship Him . That is a straight path .
But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief , he cried : Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah? The disciples said : We will be Allah ' s helpers . We believe in Allah , and bear thou witness that we have surrendered ( unto Him ) .
Our Lord! We believe in that which Thou hast revealed and we follow him whom Thou hast sent . Enroll us among those who witness ( to the truth ) .
And they ( the disbelievers ) schemed , and Allah schemed ( against them ) : and Allah is the best of schemers .
( And remember ) when Allah said : O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me , and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection . Then unto Me ye will ( all ) return , and I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ .
As for those who disbelieve I shah chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the world and the Hereafter ; and they will have no helpers .
And as for those who believe and do good works , He will pay them their wages in full . Allah loveth not wrongdoers .
This ( which ) We recite unto thee is a revelation and a wise reminder .
Lo! the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam . He created him of dust , then He said unto him : Be! and he is .
( This is ) the truth from thy Lord ( O Muhammad ) , so be not thou of those who waver .
And whoso disputeth with thee concerning him , after the knowledge which hath come unto thee , say ( unto him ) : Come! We will summon our sons and your sons , and our women and your women , and ourselves and yourselves , then we will pray humbly ( to our Lord ) and ( solemnly ) invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie .
Lo! This verily is the true narrative . There is no God save Allah , and lo! Allah is the Mighty , , the Wise .
And if they turn away , then Lo! Allah is Aware of ( who are ) the corrupters .
Say : O People of the Scripture . Come to an agreement between us and you : that we shall worship none but Allah , and that we shall ascribe no partners unto Him , and that none of us shall take others for lords beside Allah . And if they turn away , then say : Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered ( unto Him ) .
O People of the Scripture! Why will ye argue about Abraham , when the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed till after him? Have ye then no sense?
Lo! ye are those who argue about that whereof ye have some knowledge : Why then argue ye concerning that where of ye have no knowledge? Allah knoweth . Ye know not .
Abraham was not a Jew , nor yet a Christian ; but he was an upright man who had surrendered ( to Allah ) , and he was not of the idolaters .
Lo! those of mankind who have the best claim to Abraham are those who followed him , and this Prophet and those who believe ( with him ) ; and Allah is the Protecting Friend of the believers .
A party of the people of the Scripture long to make you go astray ; and they make none to go astray except themselves , but they perceive not .
O People of the Scripture! Why disbelieve ye in the revelations of Allah , when ye ( yourselves ) bear witness ( to theft truth ) ?
O People of the Scripture! Why confound ye truth with falsehood and knowingly conceal the troth?
And a party of the People of the Scripture say : Believe in that which hath been revealed , unto those who believe at the opening of the day , and disbelieve at the end thereof , in order that they may return ;
And believe not save in one who followeth your religion . Say ( O Muhammad ) : Lo! the guidance is Allah ' s guidance . that any one is given the like of that which was given unto you or that they may argue with you in the presence of their Lord . Say ( O Muhammad ) : Lo! the bounty is in Allah ' s hand . He bestoweth it on whom He will . Allah is All Embracing , All Knowing .
He selecteth for His mercy whom He will . Allah is of infinite bounty .
Among the People of the Scripture there is he who , if thou trust him with a weight of treasure , will return it to thee . And among them there is he who , if thou trust him with a piece of gold , will not return it to thee unless thou keep standing over him . That is because they say : We have no duty to the Gentiles . They speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly .
Nay , but ( the chosen of Allah is ) he who fulfilleth his pledge and wardeth off ( evil ) ; for lot Allah loveth those who ward off ( evil ) .
Lo! those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah ' s covenant and their oaths , they have no portion in the Hereafter . Allah will neither speak to them nor look upon them on the Day of Resurrection , nor will He make them grow . Theirs will be a painful doom .
And Lo! there is a party of them who distort the Scripture with their tongues , that ye may think that what they say is from the Scripture , when it is not from the Scripture . And they say : It is from Allah , when it is not from Allah ; and they speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly .
It is not ( possible ) for any human being unto whom Allah had given the Scripture and wisdom and the Prophethood that he should afterwards have said unto mankind : Be slaves of me instead of Allah ; but ( what he said was ) : Be ye faithful servants of the Lord by virtue of your constant teaching of the Scripture and of your constant study thereof .
And he commanded you not that ye should take the angels and the Prophets for lords . Would he command you to disbelieve after ye had surrendered ( to Allah ) ?
When Allah made ( His ) covenant with the Prophets , ( He said ) : Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and knowledge . And afterward there will come unto you a messenger , confirming that which ye possess . Ye shall believe in him and ye shah help him . He said : Do ye agree , and will ye take up My burden ( which I lay upon you ) in this ( matter ) ? They answered : We agree . He said : Then bear ye witness . I will be a witness with you .
Then whosoever after this shall turn away : they will be miscreants .
Seek they other than the religion of Allah , when unto Him submitteth whosoever is in the heavens and the earth , willingly , or unwillingly , and unto Him they will be returned .
Say ( O Muhammad ) : We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes , and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord . We make no distinction between any of them , and unto Him we have surrendered .
And whoso seeketh as religion other than the Surrender ( to Allah ) it will not be accepted from him , and he will be a loser in the Hereafter .
How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and ( after ) they bore witness that the messenger is true and after clear proofs ( of Allah ' s sovereignty ) had come unto them . And Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk .
As for such , their guerdon is that on them rests the curse of Allah and of angels and of men combined .
They will abide therein . Their doom will not be lightened , neither will they be reprieved ;
Save those who afterward repent and do right . Lo! Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .
Lo! those who disbelieve after their ( profession of ) belief , and afterward grow violent in disbelief : their repentance will not be accepted . And such are those who are astray .
Lo! those who disbelieve , and die in disbelief , the ( whole ) earth full of gold would not be accepted from such an one if it were offered as a ransom ( for his soul ) . Theirs will be a painful doom and they will have no helpers .
Ye will not attain unto piety until ye spend of that which ye love . And whatsoever ye spend , Allah is aware thereof .
All food was lawful unto the children of Israel , save that which Israel forbade himself , ( in days ) before the Torah was revealed . Say : Produce the Torah and read it ( unto us ) if ye are truthful .
And whoever shall invent a falsehood after that concerning Allah , such will be wrong doers .
Say : Allah speaketh truth . So follow the religion of Abraham , the upright . He was not of the idolaters .
Lo! the first Sanctuary appointed for mankind was that at Mecca , a blessed place , a guidance to the peoples ;
Wherein are plain memorials ( of Allah ' s guidance ) ; the place where Abraham stood up to pray ; and whosoever entereth it is safe . And pilgrimage to the House is a duty unto Allah for mankind , for him who can find a way thither . As for him who disbelieveth , ( let him know that ) Lo! Allah is Independent of ( all ) creatures .
Say : O People of the Scripture! Why disbelieve ye in the revelations of Allah , when Allah ( Himself ) is Witness of what ye do?
Say : O People of the Scripture! Why drive ye hack believers from the way of Allah , seeking to make it crooked , when ye are witnesses ( to Allah ' s guidance ) ? Allah is not unaware of what ye do .
O ye who believe! If ye obey a party of those who have received the Scripture they will make you disbelievers after your belief .
