In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[98.1] Those who
disbelieved from among the followers of the Book and the
polytheists could not have separated (from the faithful) until
there had come to them the clear evidence:
[98.2] An apostle from Allah, reciting pure pages,
[98.3] Wherein are all the right ordinances.
[98.4] And those who were given the Book did not become
divided except after clear evidence had come to them.
[98.5] And they were not enjoined anything except that
they should serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience,
upright, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and that is
the right religion.
[98.6] Surely those who disbelieve from among the
followers of the Book and the polytheists shall be in the fire
of hell, abiding therein; they are the worst of men.
[98.7] (As for) those who believe and do good, surely
they are the -best of men.
[98.8] Their reward with their Lord is gardens of
perpetuity beneath which rivers flow, abiding therein for ever;
Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with
Him; that is for him who fears his Lord.
