Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall's Translation

Surah Bayyinah: The Clear Proof

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

098.001 Those who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture and the idolaters could not have left off (erring) till the clear proof came unto them,
098.002 A messenger from Allah, reading purified pages
098.003 Containing correct scriptures.
098.004 Nor were the People of the Scripture divided until after the clear proof came unto them.
098.005 And they are ordered naught else than to serve Allah, keeping religion pure for Him, as men by nature upright, and to establish worship and to pay the poor-due. That is true religion.
098.006 Lo! those who disbelieve, among the People of the Scripture and the idolaters, will abide in fire of hell. They are the worst of created beings.
098.007 (And) lo! those who believe and do good works are the best of created beings.
098.008 Their reward is with their Lord: Gardens of Eden underneath which rivers flow, wherein they dwell for ever. Allah hath pleasure in them and they have pleasure in Him. This is (in store) for him who feareth his Lord.

 

Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
