Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

The disbelievers from the People of the Book and the polytheists were not going to desist ˹from disbelief˺ until the clear proof came to them:

      

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

a messenger from Allah, reciting scrolls of ˹utmost˺ purity,

   

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

containing upright commandments.

           

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

It was not until this clear proof came to the People of the Book that they became divided ˹about his prophethood˺—

                

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

even though they were only commanded to worship Allah ˹alone˺ with sincere devotion to Him in all uprightness, establish prayer, and pay alms-tax. That is the upright Way.

                

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Indeed, those who disbelieve from the People of the Book and the polytheists will be in the Fire of Hell, to stay there forever. They are the worst of ˹all˺ beings.

         

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Indeed, those who believe and do good—they are the best of ˹all˺ beings.

                     

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Their reward with their Lord will be Gardens of Eternity, under which rivers flow, to stay there for ever and ever. Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. This is ˹only˺ for those in awe of their Lord.
