The Clear Evidence
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[98.1] Those who disbelieved from among the followers of the Book
and the polytheists could not have separated (from the faithful) until there
had come to them the clear evidence:
[98.2] An apostle from Allah, reciting pure pages,
[98.3] Wherein are all the right ordinances.
[98.4] And those who were given the Book did not become divided except
after clear evidence had come to them.
[98.5] And they were not enjoined anything except that they should
serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience, upright, and keep up prayer
and pay the poor-rate, and that is the right religion.
[98.6] Surely those who disbelieve from among the followers of the
Book and the polytheists shall be in the fire of hell, abiding therein; they
are the worst of men.
[98.7] (As for) those who believe and do good, surely they are the
-best of men.
[98.8] Their reward with their Lord is gardens of perpetuity beneath
which rivers flow, abiding therein for ever; Allah is well pleased with them
and they are well pleased with Him; that is for him who fears his Lord.
