ye who believe! fulfil (all) obligations.
1. Lawful unto you (for
food) are all four-footed animals, with the exceptions named: But
animals of the chase are forbidden while ye are in the sacred precincts
or in pilgrim garb: for Allah doth command according to His will
3. O ye who believe!
Violate not the sanctity of the symbols of Allah, nor of the sacred
month, nor of the animals brought for sacrifice, nor the garlands
that mark out such animals, nor the people resorting to the sacred
house, seeking of the bounty and good pleasure of their Lord. But
when ye are clear of the sacred precincts and of pilgrim garb, ye
may hunt and let not the hatred of some people in (once) shutting
you out of the Sacred Mosque lead you to transgression (and hostility
on your part). Help ye one another in righteousness and piety, but
help ye not one another in sin and rancour: fear Allah. for Allah
is strict in punishment.
4. Forbidden to you (for
food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which
hath been invoked the name of other than Allah. that which hath
been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong
fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly)
eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due
form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also
is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety.
This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion:
yet fear them not but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion
for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam
as your religion. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination
to transgression, Allah is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
5. They ask thee what
is lawful to them (as food). Say: lawful unto you are (all) things
good and pure: and what ye have taught your trained hunting animals
(to catch) in the manner directed to you by Allah. eat what they
catch for you, but pronounce the name of Allah over it: and fear
Allah. for Allah is swift in taking account.
6. This day are (all)
things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People
of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them. (Lawful
unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers,
but chaste women among the People of the Book, revealed before your
time,- when ye give them their due dowers, and desire chastity,
not lewdness, nor secret intrigues if any one rejects faith, fruitless
is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those
who have lost (all spiritual good).
7. O ye who believe!
when ye prepare for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands (and
arms) to the elbows; Rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your
feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity,
bathe your whole body. But if ye are ill, or on a journey, or one
of you cometh from offices of nature, or ye have been in contact
with women, and ye find no water, then take for yourselves clean
sand or earth, and rub therewith your faces and hands, Allah doth
not wish to place you in a difficulty, but to make you clean, and
to complete his favour to you, that ye may be grateful.
8. And call in remembrance
the favour of Allah unto you, and His covenant, which He ratified
with you, when ye said: "We hear and we obey": And fear Allah, for
Allah knoweth well the secrets of your hearts.
9. O ye who believe!
stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let
not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart
from justice. Be just: that is next to piety: and fear Allah. For
Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.
10. To those who believe
and do deeds of righteousness hath Allah promised forgiveness and
a great reward.
11. Those who reject
faith and deny our signs will be companions of Hell-fire.
12. O ye who believe!
Call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you when certain men
formed the design to stretch out their hands against you, but ((Allah))
held back their hands from you: so fear Allah. And on Allah let
believers put (all) their trust.
13. Allah did aforetime
take a covenant from the Children of Israel, and we appointed twelve
captains among them. And Allah said: "I am with you: if ye (but)
establish regular prayers, practise regular charity, believe in
my apostles, honour and assist them, and loan to Allah a beautiful
loan, verily I will wipe out from you your evils, and admit you
to gardens with rivers flowing beneath; but if any of you, after
this, resisteth faith, he hath truly wandered from the path or rectitude."
14. But because of their
breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts
grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget
a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease
to find them- barring a few - ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive
them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for Allah loveth those who
15. From those, too,
who call themselves Christians, We did take a covenant, but they
forgot a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged
them, with enmity and hatred between the one and the other, to the
day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it is they have
16. O people of the
Book! There hath come to you our Messenger, revealing to you much
that ye used to hide in the Book, and passing over much (that is
now unnecessary). There hath come to you from Allah a (new) light
and a perspicuous Book,-
17. Wherewith Allah
guideth all who seek His good pleasure to ways of peace and safety,
and leadeth them out of darkness, by His will, unto the light,-
guideth them to a path that is straight.
18. In blasphemy indeed
are those that say that Allah is Christ the son of Mary. Say: "Who
then hath the least power against Allah, if His will were to destroy
Christ the son of Mary, his mother, and all every - one that is
on the earth? For to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens
and the earth, and all that is between. He createth what He pleaseth.
For Allah hath power over all things."
19. (Both) the Jews
and the Christians say: "We are sons of Allah, and his beloved."
Say: "Why then doth He punish you for your sins? Nay, ye are but
men,- of the men he hath created: He forgiveth whom He pleaseth,
and He punisheth whom He pleaseth: and to Allah belongeth the dominion
of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between: and unto
Him is the final goal (of all)"
20. O People of the
Book! Now hath come unto you, making (things) clear unto you, Our
Messenger, after the break in (the series of) our apostles, lest
ye should say: "There came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and
no warner (from evil)": But now hath come unto you a bringer of
glad tidings and a warner (from evil). And Allah hath power over
21. Remember Moses said
to his people: "O my people! Call in remembrance the favour of Allah
unto you, when He produced prophets among you, made you kings, and
gave you what He had not given to any other among the peoples.
22. "O my people! Enter
the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back
ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin."
23. They said: "O Moses!
In this land are a people of exceeding strength: Never shall we
enter it until they leave it: if (once) they leave, then shall we
24. (But) among (their)
Allah.fearing men were two on whom Allah had bestowed His grace:
They said: "Assault them at the (proper) Gate: when once ye are
in, victory will be yours; But on Allah put your trust if ye have
25. They said: "O Moses!
while they remain there, never shall we be able to enter, to the
end of time. Go thou, and thy Lord, and fight ye two, while we sit
here (and watch)."
26. He said: "O my Lord!
I have power only over myself and my brother: so separate us from
this rebellious people!"
27. Allah said: "Therefore
will the land be out of their reach for forty years: In distraction
will they wander through the land: But sorrow thou not over these
28. Recite to them the
truth of the story of the two sons of Adam. Behold! they each presented
a sacrifice (to Allah.: It was accepted from one, but not from the
other. Said the latter: "Be sure I will slay thee." "Surely," said
the former, "(Allah) doth accept of the sacrifice of those who are
29. "If thou dost stretch
thy hand against me, to slay me, it is not for me to stretch my
hand against thee to slay thee: for I do fear Allah, the cherisher
of the worlds.
30. "For me, I intend
to let thee draw on thyself my sin as well as thine, for thou wilt
be among the companions of the fire, and that is the reward of those
who do wrong."
31. The (selfish) soul
of the other led him to the murder of his brother: he murdered him,
and became (himself) one of the lost ones.
32. Then Allah sent
a raven, who scratched the ground, to show him how to hide the shame
of his brother. "Woe is me!" said he; "Was I not even able to be
as this raven, and to hide the shame of my brother?" then he became
full of regrets-
33. On that account:
We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person
- unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land
- it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved
a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.
Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear signs,
yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses
in the land.
34. The punishment of
those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with
might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion,
or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile
from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy
punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
35. Except for those
who repent before they fall into your power: in that case, know
that Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
36. O ye who believe!
Do your duty to Allah, seek the means of approach unto Him, and
strive with might and main in his cause: that ye may prosper.
37. As to those who
reject Faith,- if they had everything on earth, and twice repeated,
to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Judgment, it would
never be accepted of them, theirs would be a grievous penalty.
37. Their wish will
be to get out of the Fire, but never will they get out therefrom:
their penalty will be one that endures.
38. As to the thief,
Male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of
example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.
39. But if the thief
repents after his crime, and amends his conduct, Allah turneth to
him in forgiveness; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
40. Knowest thou not
that to Allah (alone) belongeth the dominion of the heavens and
the earth? He punisheth whom He pleaseth, and He forgiveth whom
He pleaseth: and Allah hath power over all things.
41. O Messenger. let
not those grieve thee, who race each other into unbelief: (whether
it be) among those who say "We believe" with their lips but whose
hearts have no faith; or it be among the Jews,- men who will listen
to any lie,- will listen even to others who have never so much as
come to thee. They change the words from their (right) times and
places: they say, "If ye are given this, take it, but if not, beware!"
If any one's trial is intended by Allah, thou hast no authority
in the least for him against Allah. For such - it is not Allah.s
will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace in this
world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment.
42. (They are fond of)
listening to falsehood, of devouring anything forbidden. If they
do come to thee, either judge between them, or decline to interfere.
If thou decline, they cannot hurt thee in the least. If thou judge,
judge in equity between them. For Allah loveth those who judge in
43. But why do they
come to thee for decision, when they have (their own) law before
them?- therein is the (plain) command of Allah. yet even after that,
they would turn away. For they are not (really) People of Faith.
44. It was We who revealed
the law (to Moses): therein was guidance and light. By its standard
have been judged the Jews, by the prophets who bowed (as in Islam)
to Allah.s will, by the rabbis and the doctors of law: for to them
was entrusted the protection of Allah.s book, and they were witnesses
thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear me, and sell not my signs
for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of)
what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers.
45. We ordained therein
for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose or nose, ear for ear,
tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if any one remits
the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act of atonement for
himself. And if any fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath
revealed, they are (No better than) wrong-doers.
46. And in their footsteps
We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come
before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light,
and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance
and an admonition to those who fear Allah.
47. Let the people of
the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do
fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are
(no better than) those who rebel.
48. To thee We sent
the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before
it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah
hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from
the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed
a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made
you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath
given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you
all is to Allah. it is He that will show you the truth of the matters
in which ye dispute;
49. And this (He commands):
Judge thou between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow
not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they beguile thee
from any of that (teaching) which Allah hath sent down to thee.
And if they turn away, be assured that for some of their crime it
is Allah.s purpose to punish them. And truly most men are rebellious.
50. Do they then seek
after a judgment of (the days of) ignorance? But who, for a people
whose faith is assured, can give better judgment than Allah.
51. O ye who believe!
take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors:
They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst
you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah
guideth not a people unjust.
52. Those in whose hearts
is a disease - thou seest how eagerly they run about amongst them,
saying: "We do fear lest a change of fortune bring us disaster."
Ah! perhaps Allah will give (thee) victory, or a decision according
to His will. Then will they repent of the thoughts which they secretly
harboured in their hearts.
53. And those who believe
will say: "Are these the men who swore their strongest oaths by
Allah, that they were with you?" All that they do will be in vain,
and they will fall into (nothing but) ruin.
54. O ye who believe!
if any from among you turn back from his Faith, soon will Allah
produce a people whom He will love as they will love Him,- lowly
with the believers, mighty against the rejecters, fighting in the
way of Allah, and never afraid of the reproaches of such as find
fault. That is the grace of Allah, which He will bestow on whom
He pleaseth. And Allah encompasseth all, and He knoweth all things.
55. Your (real) friends
are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of)
believers,- those who establish regular prayers and regular charity,
and they bow down humbly (in worship).
56. As to those who
turn (for friendship) to Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship
of) believers,- it is the fellowship of Allah that must certainly
57. O ye who believe!
take not for friends and protectors those who take your religion
for a mockery or sport,- whether among those who received the Scripture
before you, or among those who reject Faith; but fear ye Allah,
if ye have faith (indeed).
58. When ye proclaim
your call to prayer they take it (but) as mockery and sport; that
is because they are a people without understanding.
59. Say: "O people of
the Book! Do ye disapprove of us for no other reason than that we
believe in Allah, and the revelation that hath come to us and that
which came before (us), and (perhaps) that most of you are rebellious
60. Say: "Shall I point
out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment
it received from Allah. those who incurred the curse of Allah and
His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine,
those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank,
and far more astray from the even path!"
61. When they come to
thee, they say: "We believe": but in fact they enter with a mind
against Faith, and they go out with the same but Allah knoweth fully
all that they hide.
62. Many of them dost
thou see, racing each other in sin and rancour, and their eating
of things forbidden. Evil indeed are the things that they do.
63. Why do not the rabbis
and the doctors of Law forbid them from their (habit of) uttering
sinful words and eating things forbidden? Evil indeed are their
64. The Jews say: "(Allah)'s
hand is tied up." Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for
the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched:
He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation
that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them their
obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity
and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the
fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to
do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief.
65. If only the People
of the Book had believed and been righteous, We should indeed have
blotted out their iniquities and admitted them to gardens of bliss.
66. If only they had
stood fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that was
sent to them from their Lord, they would have enjoyed happiness
from every side. There is from among them a party on the right course:
but many of them follow a course that is evil.
67. O Messenger. proclaim
the (message) which hath been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou
didst not, thou wouldst not have fulfilled and proclaimed His mission.
And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief). For Allah
guideth not those who reject Faith.
68. Say: "O People of
the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by
the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you
from your Lord." It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy
Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion
and blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith.
69. Those who believe
(in the Qur'an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the
Sabians and the Christians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last
Day, and work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall
70. We took the covenant
of the Children of Israel and sent them apostles, every time, there
came to them an apostle with what they themselves desired not -
some (of these) they called impostors, and some they (go so far
as to) slay.
71. They thought there
would be no trial (or punishment); so they became blind and deaf;
yet Allah (in mercy) turned to them; yet again many of them became
blind and deaf. But Allah sees well all that they do.
72. They do blaspheme
who say: "(Allah) is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O
Children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Whoever
joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden,
and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be
no one to help.
73. They do blaspheme
who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god
except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy),
verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.
74. Why turn they not
to Allah, and seek His forgiveness? For Allah is Oft- forgiving,
75. Christ the son of
Mary was no more than an apostle; many were the apostles that passed
away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both
to eat their (daily) food. See how Allah doth make His signs clear
to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!
76. Say: "Will ye worship,
besides Allah, something which hath no power either to harm or benefit
you? But Allah,- He it is that heareth and knoweth all things."
77. Say: "O people of
the Book! exceed not in your religion the bounds (of what is proper),
trespassing beyond the truth, nor follow the vain desires of people
who went wrong in times gone by,- who misled many, and strayed (themselves)
from the even way.
78. Curses were pronounced
on those among the Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the
tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary: because they disobeyed
and persisted in excesses.
79. Nor did they (usually)
forbid one another the iniquities which they committed: evil indeed
were the deeds which they did.
80. 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 Allah.s wrath is on them, and in torment will
81. If only they had
believed in Allah, in the Messenger, and in what hath been revealed
to him, never would they have taken them for friends and protectors,
but most of them are rebellious wrong-doers.
82. Strongest among
men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans;
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
83. And when they listen
to the revelation received by the Messenger, 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.
84. "What cause can
we have not to believe in Allah and the truth which has come to
us, seeing that we long for our Lord to admit us to the company
of the righteous?"
85. And for this their
prayer hath Allah rewarded them with gardens, with rivers flowing
underneath,- their eternal home. Such is the recompense of those
who do good.
86. But those who reject
Faith and belie our Signs,- they shall be companions of Hell-fire.
87. O ye who believe!
make not unlawful the good things which Allah hath made lawful for
you, but commit no excess: for Allah loveth not those given to excess.
88. Eat of the things
which Allah hath provided for you, lawful and good; but fear Allah,
in Whom ye believe.
89. Allah will not call
you 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 Allah
make clear to you His signs, that ye may be grateful.
90. 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.
91. Satan's plan is
(but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants
and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and
from prayer: will ye not then abstain?
92. Obey Allah, and
obey the Messenger, and beware (of evil): if ye do turn back, know
ye that it is Our Messenger.s duty to proclaim (the message) in
the clearest manner.
93. On those who believe
and do deeds of righteousness there is 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 Allah loveth those who do good.
94. O ye who believe!
Allah doth but make a trial of you in a little matter of game well
within reach of your hands and your lances, that He may test who
feareth him unseen: any who transgress thereafter, will have a grievous
95. 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 an offering,
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 of his deed. Allah forgives what is past:
for repetition Allah will exact from him the penalty. For Allah
is Exalted, and Lord of Retribution.
96. 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 the sacred precincts or in pilgrim
garb. And fear Allah, to Whom ye shall be gathered back.
97. Allah 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 Allah hath knowledge of what is in the heavens
and on earth and that Allah is well acquainted with all things.
98. Know ye that Allah
is strict in punishment and that Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
99. The Messenger.s
duty is but to proclaim (the message). But Allah knoweth all that
ye reveal and ye conceal.
100. Say: "Not equal
are things that are bad and things that are good, even though the
abundance of the bad may dazzle thee; so fear Allah, O ye that understand;
that (so) ye may prosper."
101. O ye who believe!
Ask not questions about things which, if made plain to you, may
cause you trouble. But if ye ask about things when the Qur'an is
being revealed, they will be made plain to you, Allah will forgive
those: for Allah is Oft- forgiving, Most Forbearing.
102. Some people before
you did ask such questions, and on that account lost their faith.
103. It was not Allah
who instituted (superstitions like those of) a slit-ear she- camel,
or a she-camel let loose for free pasture, or idol sacrifices for
twin-births in animals, or stallion-camels freed from work: It is
blasphemers who invent a lie against Allah. but most of them lack
104. When it is said
to them: "Come to what Allah hath revealed; come to the Messenger.:
They say: "Enough for us are the ways we found our fathers following."
what! even though their fathers were void of knowledge and guidance?
105. O ye who believe!
Guard your own souls: If ye follow (right) guidance, no hurt can
come to you from those who stray. the goal of you all is to Allah.
it is He that will show you the truth of all that ye do.
106. O ye who believe!
When death approaches any of you, (take) witnesses among yourselves
when making bequests,- two just men of your own (brotherhood) or
others from outside if ye are journeying through the earth, and
the chance of death befalls you (thus). If ye doubt (their truth),
detain them both after prayer, and let them both swear by Allah.
"We wish not in this for any worldly gain, even though the (beneficiary)
be our near relation: we shall hide not the evidence before Allah.
if we do, then behold! the sin be upon us!"
107. But if it gets
known that these two were guilty of the sin (of perjury), let two
others stand forth in their places,- nearest in kin from among those
who claim a lawful right: let them swear by Allah. "We affirm that
our witness is truer than that of those two, and that we have not
trespassed (beyond the truth): if we did, behold! the wrong be upon
108. That is most suitable:
that they may give the evidence in its true nature and shape, or
else they would fear that other oaths would be taken after their
oaths. But fear Allah, and listen (to His counsel): for Allah guideth
not a rebellious people:
109. One day will Allah
gather the apostles together, and ask: "What was the response ye
received (from men to your teaching)?" They will say: "We have no
knowledge: it is Thou Who knowest in full all that is hidden."
110. Then will Allah
say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to thee and
to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit,
so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity.
Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel
and behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a
bird, by My leave, and thou breathest into it and it becometh a
bird by My leave, and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers,
by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave.
And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence
to) thee when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers
among them said: 'This is nothing but evident magic.'
111. Behold! the disciples, said: "O Jesus
the son of Mary! can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with
viands) from heaven?" Said Jesus: "Fear Allah, if ye have faith."
112. "And behold! I inspired the disciples
to have faith in Me and Mine Messenger. they said, 'We have faith,
and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims'".
113. They said: "We
only wish to eat thereof and satisfy our hearts, and to know that
thou hast indeed told us the truth; and that we ourselves may be
witnesses to the miracle."
114. Said Jesus the
son of Mary: "O Allah our Lord! Send us from heaven a table set
(with viands), that there may be for us - for the first and the
last of us - a solemn festival and a sign from thee; and provide
for our sustenance, for thou art the best Sustainer (of our needs)."
115. Allah said: "I
will send it down unto you: But if any of you after that resisteth
faith, I will punish him with a penalty such as I have not inflicted
on any one among all the peoples."
116. And behold! Allah
will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship
me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah.?" He will say:
"Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say).
Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou
knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For
Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.
117. "Never said I
to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say, to wit,
'worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord'; and I was a witness over
them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up Thou
wast the Watcher over them, and Thou art a witness to all things.
118. "If Thou dost
punish them, they are Thy servant: If Thou dost forgive them, Thou
art the Exalted in power, the Wise."
119. Allah will say:
"This is a day on which the truthful will profit from their truth:
theirs are gardens, with rivers flowing beneath,- their eternal
Home: Allah well-pleased with them, and they with Allah. That is
the great salvation, (the fulfilment of all desires).
120. To Allah doth
belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is
therein, and it is He Who hath power over all things.
