In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.
1 Those who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture, and the Polytheists, were not apart, until the Clear Evidence came to them.
2 A messenger from God reciting purified scripts.
3 In them are valuable writings.
4 Those who were given the Scripture did not splinter, except after the Clear Evidence came to them.
5 They were commanded only to worship God, devoting their faith to Him alone, and to practice regular prayer, and to give alms. That is the upright religion.
6 Those who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture, and the Polytheists, will be in the Fire of Hell, where they will abide forever. These are the worst of creatures.
7 As for those who believe and lead a righteous life—these are the best of creatures.
8 Their reward is with their Lord: Gardens of Eternity beneath which rivers flow, where they will abide forever. God is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. That is for whoever fears His Lord.
