In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . O ye who believe! Fulfil your undertakings . The beast of cattle is made lawful unto you ( for food ) except that which is announced unto you ( herein ) , game being unlawful when ye are on pilgrimage . Lo! Allah ordaineth that which pleaseth Him .

2 . O ye who believe! Profane not Allah ' s monuments nor the Sacred Month nor the offerings nor the garlands , nor those repairing to the Sacred House , seeking the grace and pleasure of Allah . But when ye have left the sacred territory , then go hunting ( if ye will ) . And let not your hatred of a folk who ( once ) stopped your going to the Inviolable Place of Worship seduce you to transgress ; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty . Help not one another unto sin and transgression , but keep your duty to Allah . Lo! Allah is severe in punishment .

3 . Forbidden unto you ( for food ) are carrion and blood and swine flesh , and that which hath been dedicated unto any other than Allah , and the strangled , and the dead through beating , and the dead through falling from a height , and that which hath been killed by ( the goring of ) horns , and the devoured of wild beasts , saving that which ye make lawful ( by the death stroke ) , and that which hath been immolated unto idols . And ( forbidden is it ) that ye swear by the divining arrows . This is an abomination . This day are those who disbelieve in despair of ( ever harming ) your religion ; so fear them not , fear Me! This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you , and have chosen for you as religion AL- ISLAM . Whoso is forced by hunger , not by will , to sin : ( for him ) lo! Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

4 . They ask thee ( O Muhammad ) what is made lawful for them . Say : ( all ) good things are made lawful for you . And those beasts and birds of prey which ye have trained as hounds are trained , ye teach them that which Allah taught you ; so eat of that which they catch for you and mention Allah ' s name upon it , and observe your duty to Allah . Lo! Allah is swift to take account .

5 . This day are ( all ) good things made lawful for you . The food of those who have received the Scripture is lawful for you , and your food is lawful for them . And so are the virtuous women of the believers and the virtuous women of those who received the Scripture before you ( lawful for you ) when ye give them their marriage portions and live with them in honor , not in fornication , nor taking them as secret concubines . Whoso denieth the faith , his work is vain and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter .

6 . O ye who believe! When ye rise up for prayer , wash your face , and your hands up to the elbows , and lightly rub your heads and ( wash ) your feet up to the ankles . And if ye are unclean , purify yourselves . And if ye are sick or on a journey , or one of you cometh from the closet , or ye have had contact with women , and ye find not water , then go to clean , high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it . Allah would not place a burden on you , but He would purify you and would perfect His grace upon you , that ye may give thanks .

7 . Remember Allah ' s grace upon you and His covenant by which He bound you when ye said : We hear and we obey ; and keep your duty to Allah . Allah knoweth what is in the breasts ( of men ) .

8 . O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity , and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly . Deal justly , that is nearer to your duty . Observe your duty to Allah . Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do .

9 . Allah hath promised those who believe and do good works : Theirs will be forgiveness and immense reward .

10 . And they who disbelieve and deny Our revelations , such are rightful owners of hell .

11 . O ye who believe! Remember Allah ' s favor unto you , how a people were minded to stretch out their hands against you but He withheld their hands from you ; and keep your duty to Allah . In Allah let believers put their trust .

12 . Allah made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We raised among them twelve chieftains : and Allah said : Lo! I am with you . If ye establish worship and pay the poor due , and believe in My messengers and support them , and lend unto Allah a kindly loan , surely I shall remit your sins , and surely I shall bring you into gardens underneath which rivers flow . Whoso among you disbelieveth after this will go astray from a plain road .

13 . And because of their breaking their covenant , We have cursed them and made hard their hearts . They change words from their context and forget a part of that whereof they were admonished . Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all save a few of them . But bear with them and pardon them . Lo! Allah loveth the kindly .

14 . And with those who say : "Lo! we are Christians , " We made a covenant , but they forgot a part of that whereof they were admonished . Therefor We have stirred up enmity and hatred among them till the Day of Resurrection , when Allah will inform them of their handiwork .

15 . O people of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you , expounding unto you much of that which ye used to hide in the Scripture , and forgiving much . Now hath come unto you light from Allah and a plain Scripture

16 . Whereby Allah guideth him who seeketh His good pleasure unto paths of peace . He bringeth them out of darkness unto light by His decree , and guideth them unto a straight path .

17 . They indeed have disbelieved who say : Lo! Allah is the Messiah , son of Mary . Say : Who then can do aught against Allah , if He had willed to destroy the Messiah son of Mary , and his mother and everyone on earth? Allah ' s is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them . He createth what He will . And Allah is Able to do all things .

18 . The Jews and Christians say : We are sons of Allah and His loved ones . Say ; Why then doth He chastise you for your sins? Nay , ye are but mortals of His creating . He forgiveth whom He will , and chastiseth whom He will . Allah ' s is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them , and unto Him is the journeying .

19 . O people of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you to make things plain after an interval ( of cessation ) of the messengers , lest ye should say : There came not unto us a messenger of cheer nor any warner . Now hath a messenger of cheer and a warner come unto you . Allah is Able to do all things .

20 . And ( remember ) when Moses said unto his people : O my people ! Remember Allah ' s favor unto you , how He placed among you Prophets , and He made you Kings , and gave you that ( which ) He gave not to any ( other ) of ( His ) creatures .

21 . O my people! Go into the holy land which Allah hath ordained for you . Turn not in flight , for surely ye turn back as losers :

22 . They said : O Moses! Lo! a giant people ( dwell ) therein , and lo! we go not in till they go forth from thence . When they go forth , then we will enter ( not till then ) .

23 . Then outspake two of those who feared ( their Lord , men ) unto whom Allah had been gracious : Enter in upon them by the gate , for if ye enter by it , lo! ye will be victorious . So put your trust ( in Allah ) if ye are indeed believers .

24 . They said : O Moses! We will never enter ( the land ) while they are in it . So go thou and thy Lord and fight! We will sit here .

25 . He said : My Lord! I have control of none but myself and my brother , so distinguish between us and the wrongdoing folk .

26 . ( Their Lord ) said : For this the land will surely be forbidden them for forty years that they will . wander in the earth , bewildered . So grieve not over the wrongdoing folk .

27 . But recite unto them with truth the tale of the two sons of Adam , how they offered each a sacrifice , and it was accepted from the one of them and it was not accepted from the other . ( The one ) said : I will surely kill thee . ( The other ) answered : Allah accepteth only from those who ward off ( evil ) .

28 . Even if thou stretch out thy hand against me to kill me , I shall not stretch out my hand against thee to kill thee , lo! I fear Allah , the Lord of the Worlds .

29 . Lo! I would rather thou shouldst bear the punishment of the sin against me and thine own sin and become one of the owners of the Fire . That is the reward of evil doers .

30 . But ( the other ' s ) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother , so he slew him and became one of the losers .

31 . Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground , to show him how to hide his brother ' s naked corpse . He said : Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven and so hide my brother ' s naked corpse? And he became repentant .

32 . For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than man slaughter or corruption in the earth , it shall be as if be had killed all mankind , and whoso saveth the life of one , it shall be as if he had : saved the life of all mankind . Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs ( of Allah ' s sovereignty ) , but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth .

33 . The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified , or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off , or will be expelled out of the land . Such will be their degradation in the world , and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom ;

34 . Save those who repent before ye overpower them . For know that Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

35 . O ye who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah , and seek the way of approach unto Him , and strive in His way in order that ye may succeed .

36 . As for those who disbelieve , lo! if all that is in the were theirs , and as much again therewith , to ransom them from the doom on the day of Resurrection , it would not be accepted from them . Theirs will be a painful doom .

37 . They will wish to come forth from the Fire , but they will not come forth from it . Theirs will be a lasting doom .

38 . As for the thief , both male and female , cut off their hands . It is the reward of their own deeds , an exemplary punishment from Allah . Allah is Mighty , Wise .

39 . But whoso repenteth after his wrongdoing and amendeth , lo! Allah will relent toward him . Lo! Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

40 . Knowest thou not that unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth? He punisheth whom He will , and forgiveth whom He will . Allah is Able to do all things .

41 . O Messenger! Let not them grieve thee who vie one with another in the race to disbelief , of such as say with their mouths : "We believe , " but their hearts believe not , and of the Jews : listeners for the sake of falsehood , listeners on behalf of other folk who come not unto thee , changing words from their context and saying : If this be given unto you , receive it but if this be not given unto you , then beware! He whom Allah doometh unto sin , thou ( by thine efforts ) wilt avail him naught against Allah . Those are they for whom the will of Allah is that He cleanse not their hearts . Theirs in the world will be ignominy , and in the Hereafter an awful doom ;

42 . Listeners for the sake of falsehood! Greedy for illicit gain! If then they have recourse unto thee ( Muhammad ) judge between them or disclaim jurisdiction . If thou disclaimest jurisdiction , then they cannot harm thee at all . But if thou judgest , judge between them with equity . Lo! Allah loveth the equitable .

43 . How come they unto thee for judgment when they have the Torah , wherein Allah hath delivered judgment ( for them ) ? Yet even after that they turn away . Such ( folk ) are not believers .

44 . Lo! We did reveal the Torah , wherein is guidance and a light , by which the Prophets who surrendered ( unto Allah ) judged the Jews , and the rabbis and the priests ( judged ) by such of Allah ' s Scripture as they were bidden to observe , and thereunto were they witnesses . So fear not mankind , but fear Me . And barter not My revelations for a little gain . Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed : such are disbelievers .

45 . And We prescribed for them therein : The life for the life , and the eye for the eye , and the nose for the nose , and the ear for the ear , and the tooth for the tooth , and for wounds retaliation . But whoso forgoeth it ( in the way of charity ) it shall be expiation for him . Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed : such are wrong doers .

46 . And We caused Jesus , son of Mary , to follow in their footsteps , confirming that which was ( revealed ) before him , and We bestowed on him the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light , confirming that which was ( revealed ) before it in the Torah a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off ( evil ) .

47 . Let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah hath revealed therein . Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed ; such are evil livers .

48 . And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth , confirming whatever Scripture was before it , and a watcher over it . So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed , and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee . For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced out way . Had Allah willed He could have made you one community . But that He may try you by that which He hath given you ( He hath made you as ye are ) . So vie one with another in good works . Unto Allah ye will all return , and He will then inform you of that wherein ye differ .

49 . So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed , and follow not their desires , but beware of them lest they seduce thee from some part of that which Allah hath revealed unto thee . And if they turn away , then know that Allah ' s will is to smite them for some sin of theirs . Lo! many of mankind are evil livers .

50 . Is it a judgment of the time of ( pagan ) ignorance that they are seeking? Who is better than Allah for judgment to a people who have certainty ( in their belief ) ?

51 . O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends . They are friends one to another . He among you who taketh them for friends is ( one ) of them . Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk .

52 . And thou seest those in whose heart is a disease race toward them , saying : We fear lest a change of fortune befall us . And it may happen that Allah will vouchsafe ( unto thee ) the victory , or a commandment from His presence . Then will they repent of their secret thoughts .

53 . Then will the believers say ( unto the people of the Scripture ) : Are these they who swore by Allah their most binding oaths that they were surely with you? Their works have failed , and they have become the losers .

54 . O ye who believe! Whoso of you becometh a renegade from his religion , ( know that in his stead ) Allah will bring a people whom He loveth and who love Him , humble toward believers , stern toward disbelievers , striving in the way of Allah and fearing not the blame of any blamer . Such is the grace of Allah which He giveth unto whom He will . Allah is All Embracing , All Knowing .

55 . Your friend can be only Allah ; and His messenger and those who believe , who establish worship and pay the poor due , and bow down ( in prayer ) .

56 . And whoso taketh Allah and His messenger and those who believe for friend ( will know that ) , lo! the party of Allah , they are the victorious .

57 . O ye who believe! Choose not for friends such of those who received the Scripture before you , and of the disbelievers , as make a jest and sport of your religion . But keep your duty to Allah if ye are true believers .

58 . And when ye call to prayer they take it for a jest and sport . That is because they are a folk who understand not .

59 . Say : O , People of the Scripture! Do ye blame us for aught else than that we believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed aforetime , and because most of you are evil livers?

60 . Shall I tell thee of a worse ( case ) than theirs for retribution with Allah? Worse ( is the case of him ) whom Allah hath cursed , him on whom His wrath hath fallen! Worse is he of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine , and who serveth idols . Such are in worse plight and further astray from the plain road .

61 . When they come unto you ( Muslims ) , they say : We believe ; but they came in unbelief and they went out in the same ; and Allah knoweth best what they were hiding .

62 . And thou seest many of them vying one with another in sin and transgression and their devouring of illicit gain . Verily evil is what they do .

63 . Why do not the rabbis and the priests forbid their evil speaking and their devouring of illicit gain? Verily evil is their handiwork .

64 . The Jews say : Allah ' s hand is fettered . Their hands are fettered and they are accursed for saying so . Nay , but both His hands are spread out wide in bounty . He bestoweth as He will . That which bath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them , and We have cast among them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection . As often as they light a fire for war , Allah extinguisheth it . Their effort is for corruption in the land , and Allah loveth not corrupters .

65 . If only the People of the Scripture would believe and ward off ( evil ) , surely We should remit their sins from them and surely We should bring them into Gardens of Delight .

66 . If they had observed the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto them from their Lord , they would surely have been nourished from above them and from beneath their feet . Among them there are people who are moderate , but many of them are of evil conduct .

67 . O Messenger! Make known that which hath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord , for if thou do it not , thou will not have conveyed His message . Allah will protect thee from mankind . Lo! Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk .

68 . Say : O People of the Scripture! Ye have naught ( of guidance ) till ye observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto you from your Lord . That which is revealed unto thee ( Muhammad ) from thy Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them . But grieve not for the disbelieving folk .

69 . Lo! those who believe , and those who are Jews , and Sabaeans , and Christians whosoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve .

70 . We made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We sent unto them messengers . As often as a messenger came unto them with that which their souls desired not ( they became rebellious ) . Some ( of them ) they denied and some they slew .

71 . They thought no harm would come of it , so they were willfully blind and deaf . And afterward Allah turned ( in mercy ) toward them . Now ( even after that ) are many of them willfully blind and deaf . Allah is Seer of what they do .

72 . They surely disbelieve who say : Lo! Allah is the Messiah , son of Mary . The Messiah ( himself ) said : O Children of Israel , worship Allah , my Lord and your Lord . Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah , for him Allah hath forbidden Paradise . His abode is the Fire . For evildoers there will be no helpers .

73 . They surely disbelieve who say : Lo! Allah is the third of three ; when there is no God save the One God . If they desist not from so saying a painful doom will fall on those of them who disbelieve .

74 . Will they not rather turn unto Allah and seek forgiveness of Him? For Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

75 . The Messiah , son of Mary , was no other than a messenger , messengers ( the like of whom ) had passed away before him . And his mother was a saintly woman . And they both used to eat ( earthly ) food . See how we make the revelations clear for them , and see how they are turned away!

76 . Say : Serve ye in place of Allah that which possesseth for you neither hurt nor use? Allah it is Who is the Hearer , the Knower .

77 . Say : O People of the Scripture! Stress not in your religion other than the truth , and follow not the vain desires of folk who erred of old and led many astray , and erred from a plain road .

78 . Those of the children of Israel who went astray were cursed by the tongue of David , and of Jesus , son of Mary . That was because they rebelled and used to transgress .

79 . They restrained not one another from the wickedness they did . Verily evil was that they used to do!

80 . Thou seest many of them making friends with those who disbelieve . surely ill for them is that which they themselves send on before them : that Allah will be wroth with them and in the doom they will abide .

81 . If they believed in Allah and the Prophet and that which is revealed unto him , they would not choose them for their friends . But many of them are of evil conduct .

82 . Thou wilt find the most vehement of mankind in hostility to those who , believe ( to be ) the Jews and the idolaters . And thou wilt find the nearest of them in affection to those who believe ( to be ) those who say : Lo! We are Christians . That is because there are among them priests and monks , and because they are not proud .

83 . When they listen to that which hath been revealed unto the messenger , thou seest their eyes overflow with tears because of their recognition of the Truth . They say : Our Lord , we believe . Inscribe us as among the witnesses .

84 . How should we not believe in Allah and that which hath come unto us of the Truth . And ( how should we not ) hope that our Lord will bring us in along with righteous folk?

85 . Allah hath rewarded them for that their saying . Gardens underneath which rivers flow , wherein they will abide for ever . That is the reward of the good .

86 . But those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations , they are owners of hell fire .

87 . O ye who believe! Forbid not the good things which Allah hath made lawful for you , and transgress not . Lo! Allah loveth not transgressors .

88 . Eat of that which Allah hath bestowed on you as food lawful and good , and keep your duty to Allah in Whom ye are believers .

89 . Allah will not take you to task for that which is unintentional in your oaths , but He will take you to task for the oaths which ye swear in earnest . The expiation thereof is the feeding of ten of the needy with the average of that wherewith ye feed your own folk , or the clothing of them , or the liberation of a slave , and for him who findeth not ( the wherewithal to do so ) then a three day fast . This is the expiation of your oaths when ye have sworn ; and keep your oaths . Thus Allah expoundeth unto you His revelations in order that ye may give thanks .

90 . O ye who believe! Strong drink and games of chance and idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan ' s handiwork . Leave it aside in order that ye may succeed .

91 . Satan seeketh only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of strong drink and games of chance , and to turn you from remembrance of Allah and from ( His ) worship . Will ye then have done?

92 . Obey Allah and obey the messenger , and beware! But if ye turn away , then know that the duty of Our messenger is only plain conveyance ( of the message ) .

93 . There shall be no sin ( imputed ) unto those who believe and do good works for what they may have eaten ( in the past ) . So be mindful of your duty ( to Allah ) , and do good works ; and again : be mindful of your duty , and believe ; and once again : be mindful of your duty , and do right . Allah loveth the good .

94 . O ye who believe! Allah will surely try you somewhat ( in the matter ) of the game which ye take with your hands and your spears , that Allah may know him who feareth Him in secret . Whoso transgresseth after this , for him there is a painful doom .

95 . O ye who believe! Kill no wild game while ye are on the pilgrimage . Whoso of you killeth it of set purpose he shall pay its forfeit in the equivalent of that which he hath killed , of domestic animals , the judge to be two men among you known for justice ; ( the forfeit ) to be brought as an offering to the Ka ' bah ; or , for expiation , he shall feed poor persons , or the equivalent thereof in fasting , that he may taste the evil consequences of his deed . Allah forgiveth whatever ( of this kind ) may have happened in the past , but whoso relapseth , Allah will take retribution from him . Allah is Mighty , Able to Requite ( the wrong ) .

96 . To hunt and to eat the fish of the sea is made lawful for you , a provision for you and for seafarers ; but to hunt on land is forbidden you so long as ye are on the pilgrimage . Be mindful of your duty to Allah , unto Whom ye will be gathered .

97 . Allah hath appointed the Ka ' bah , the Sacred House , a standard for mankind , and the Sacred Month and the offerings and the garlands . That is so that ye may know that Allah knoweth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth , and that Allah is Knower of all things .

98 . Know that Allah is severe in punishment , but that Allah ( also ) is Forgiving , Merciful .

99 . The duty of the messenger is only to convey ( the message ) . Allah knoweth what ye proclaim and what ye hide .

100 . Say : The evil , and the good are not alike even though the plenty of the evil attract thee . So be mindful of your duty to Allah , O men of understanding , that ye may succeed .

101 . O ye who believe! Ask not of things which , if they were made known unto you , would trouble you ; but if ye ask of them when the Qur ' an is being revealed , they will be made known unto you . Allah pardoneth this , for Allah is Forgiving , Clement .

102 . A folk before you asked ( for such disclosures ) and then disbelieved there in .

103 . Allah hath not appointed anything in the nature of a Bahirah or a Saibah or a Wasilah or a Hami , but those who disbelieve invent a lie against Allah . Most of them have no sense .

104 . And when it is said unto them : Come unto that which Allah hath revealed and unto the messenger , they say : Enough for us is that wherein we found our fathers . What! Even though their fathers had no knowledge whatsoever , and no guidance?

105 . O ye who believe! Ye have charge of your own souls . He who erreth cannot injure you if ye are rightly guided . Unto Allah ye will all return ; and then He will inform you of what ye used to do .

106 . O ye who believe! Let there be witnesses between you when death draweth nigh unto one of you , at the time of bequest two witnesses , just men from among you , or two others from another tribe , in case ye are campaigning in the land and the calamity of death befall you . Ye shall empanel them both after the prayer , and , if ye doubt , they shall be made to swear by Allah ( saying ) : We will not take a bribe , even though it were ( on behalf of ) a near kinsman nor will we hide the testimony of Allah , for then indeed we should be of the sinful .

107 . But then , if it is afterwards ascertained that both of them merit ( the suspicion of ) sin , let two others take their place of those nearly concerned , and let them swear by Allah , ( saying ) : Verily our testimony is truer than their testimony and we have not transgressed ( the bounds of duty ) , for then indeed we should be of the evildoers .

108 . Thus it is more likely that they will hear true witness or fear that after their oath the oath ( of others ) will be taken . So be mindful of your duty ( to Allah ) and hearken . Allah guideth not the froward folk .

109 . In the day when Allah gathereth together the messengers , and saith : What was your response ( from mankind ) ? they say : We have no knowledge . Lo! Thou , only Thou art the Knower of Things Hidden .

110 . When Allah saith : O Jesus , son of Mary! Remember My favor unto thee and unto thy mother ; how I strengthened thee with the holy Spirit , so that thou spakest unto mankind in the cradle as in maturity ; and how I taught thee the Scripture and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel ; and how thou didst shape of clay as it were the likeness of a bird by My permission , and didst blow upon it and it was a bird by My permission , and thou didst heal him who was born blind and the leper by My permission ; and how thou didst raise the dead , by My permission and how I restrained the Children of Israel from ( harming ) thee when thou camest unto them with clear proofs , and those of them who disbelieved exclaimed : This is naught else than mere magic ;

111 . And when I inspired the disciples , ( saying ) : Believe in Me and in My messenger , they said : We believe . Bear witness that we have surrendered ( unto Thee ) .

112 . When the disciples said : O Jesus , son of Mary! Is thy Lord able to send down for us a table spread with food from heaven? He said : Observe your duty to Allah , if ye are true believers .

113 . ( They said : ) We wish to eat thereof , that we may satisfy our hearts and know that thou hast spoken truth to us , and that thereof we may be witnesses .

114 . Jesus , son of Mary , said : O Allah , Lord of us! Send down for us a table spread with food from heaven , that it may be a feast for Us , for the first of us and for the last of us , and a sign from Thee . Give us sustenance , for Thou art the Best of Sustainers .

115 . Allah said : Lo! I send it down for you . And whoso disbelieveth of you afterward , him surely will I punish with a punishment wherewith I have not punished any of ( My ) creatures .

116 . And when Allah saith : O Jesus , son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind : Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah? he saith : Be glorified It was not mine to utter that to which I had no right . If I used to say it , then Thou knewest it . Thou knowest what is in my mind , and I know not what is in Thy mind . Lo! Thou , only Thou art the Knower of Things Hidden .

117 . I spake unto them only that which Thou commandedst me , ( saying ) : Worship Allah , my Lord and your Lord . I was a witness of them while I dwelt among them , and when Thou tookest me Thou wast the Watcher over them . Thou art Witness over all things .

118 . If Thou punish them , lo! they are Thy slaves , and if Thou forgive them ( lo! they are Thy slaves ) . Lo! Thou , only Thou art the Mighty , the Wise .

119 . Allah saith : This is a day in which their truthfulness profiteth the truthful , for theirs are Gardens underneath which rivers flow , wherein they are secure for ever , Allah taking pleasure in them and they in Him . That is the great triumph .

120 . Unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is therein , and He is Able to do all things .
