[The Monotheist Group] (2011 Edition) rendition of Surah The Family of Imran, The House of Imran(al-Imran)
---
3:1 A.L.M.
3:2 God, there is no god but He, the Living, the Sustainer.
3:3 He sent down to you the Scripture with truth, authenticating what is present with it; and He sent down the Torah and the Injeel.
3:4 From before as a guidance for the people, and He sent down the Criterion. Those who rejected God's revelations, they will have a painful retribution, and God is Noble, extracting in Revenge.
3:5 For God nothing is hidden in the Earth or in the heavens.
3:6 He is the One who pictures you in the wombs as He pleases. There is no god but Him, the Noble, the Wise.
3:7 He is the One who sent down to you the Scripture, from which there are firm verses; they are the essence of the Scripture; and others which are similar to each other. As for those who have disease in their hearts, they will follow what is similar from it seeking to confuse, and seeking to derive an interpretation. But none know its interpretation except God and those who are well founded in knowledge, they Say: "We believe in it, all is from our Lord." And none will remember except the people of understanding.
3:8 "Our Lord, do not make our hearts deviate after You have guided us, and grant us from You a mercy; You are the Grantor."
3:9 "Our Lord, You will gather the people for a Day in which there is no doubt; God does not break His appointment."
3:10 As for those who rejected, neither their money nor their children will avail them anything from God. They are the fuel for the Fire.
3:11 Like the behaviour of the people of Pharaoh and those before them. They rejected Our signs so God took them for their sins. God is awesome in retribution.
3:12 Say to those who have rejected: "You will be defeated and gathered towards Hell, what a miserable abode!"
3:13 There was a sign for you in the two groups that met. One was fighting in the cause of God, and the other was rejecting. They thus saw them as twice their number with their eyes. And God supports with His victory whom He wills. In this is a lesson for those with vision.
3:14 It has been adorned for people to love the desire of the most modern things, and buildings, and ornaments made from gold and silver, and trained horses, and the livestock, and fields. These are the enjoyment of the world, and with God are the best goods.
3:15 Say: "Shall I inform you of what is greater than all this For those who believe in their Lord will be gardens with rivers flowing beneath, in them they abide eternally, and with pure mates, and an acceptance from God. And God is watcher over the servants."
3:16 The ones who Say: "Our Lord, we believe, so forgive us our sins, and spare us the retribution of the Fire."
3:17 The patient, and the truthful, and the devout, and the givers, and the seekers of forgiveness in the late hours of the night.
3:18 God bears witness that there is no god but He, as do the Angels, and those with knowledge, He is standing with justice. There is no god but Him, the Noble, the Wise.
3:19 The system with God is to surrender, and those who received the Scripture did not dispute except after the knowledge came to them out of jealousy between them. And whoever rejects God's signs, then God is swift in judgment.
3:20 If they debate with you, then Say: "I have surrendered myself to God, as well as those who follow me." And say to those who have received the Scripture and the Gentiles: "Have you surrendered" If they have surrendered then they are guided, and if they turn away, then you are only to deliver, and God is watcher over the servants.
3:21 Those who reject God's revelations and kill the prophets unjustly, and kill those who order justice from amongst the people; inform them of a painful retribution.
3:22 These are the ones whose works will be lost in this world, and in the Hereafter they will have no supporters.
3:23 Did you not see those who were given a portion of the Scripture being invited to God's Scripture to judge between them, then a group of them turns away while they are adverse
3:24 That is because they said: "The Fire will not touch us except a few number of days," and they were arrogant by what they invented in their system.
3:25 How shall it be when We gather them on the Day in which there is no doubt; and every soul shall receive what it has earned, and they will not be wronged.
3:26 Say: "O God, Possessor of kingship; you grant kingship to whom You please, and revoke kingship from whom You please, and honour whom You please, and humiliate whom You please; in Your hand is goodness. You are capable of all things."
3:27 "You blend the night into the day, and blend the day into the night; and you bring the living out of the dead, and bring the dead out of the living; and You provide for whom You please with no reckoning."
3:28 Let not the believers take the rejecters as allies instead of the believers. And whoever does so will have nothing with God; for you are to be cautious of them as they deserve. And God warns you of Himself, and to God is the destiny.
3:29 Say: "If you hide what is in your chests or you reveal it, God will know." And He knows what is in the heavens and what is in the Earth; and God is capable of all things.
3:30 The Day every soul will find what good it had done present, and what bad it had done; it wishes that between them was a great distance. And God warns you of Himself, and God is Compassionate towards the servants.
3:31 Say: "If you love God then follow me so God will love you and forgive your sins." God is Forgiver, Merciful.
3:32 Say: "Obey God and the messenger." But if they turn away, then God does not like the rejecters.
3:33 God has selected Adam, and Noah, and the family of Abraham, and the family of Imran over the worlds.
3:34 A progeny each from the other, and God is Hearer, Knower.
3:35 When the wife of Imran said: "My Lord, I have vowed to You what is in my womb, dedicated, so accept from me, You are the Hearer, the Knower."
3:36 So when she delivered she said: "My Lord, I have delivered a female," and God is fully aware of what she delivered, "And the male is not like the female, and I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her and her progeny with You from the outcast devil."
3:37 So her Lord accepted her a good acceptance, and made her grow into a good growth, and charged Zachariah with her. Every time Zachariah entered upon her in the temple enclosure, he found provisions with her. He said: "O Mary, from where did you get this" She said: "It is from God, God provides for whom He wishes without reckoning."
3:38 It was then that Zachariah called on his Lord, he said: "My Lord, grant me from You a good progeny, You are hearer of the prayers."
3:39 The Angels called to him while he was standing to the contact-method in the temple enclosure: "God gives you good tidings of John, authenticating the word from God, and a master, and steadfast, and a prophet from the upright."
3:40 He said: "My Lord, how can I have a son when old age has reached me and my wife is sterile" He said: "It is as such that God does what He pleases."
3:41 He said: "My Lord, make for me a sign" He said: "Your sign is not to speak to the people for three days except by symbol, and remember your Lord greatly, and glorify evening and morning."
3:42 And the Angels said: "O Mary, God has selected you and cleansed you, and He has selected you over the women of the worlds."
3:43 "O Mary, be devoted to your Lord and prostrate and kneel with those who kneel."
3:44 This is from the news of the unseen that We inspire to you. You were not with them when they drew straws as to which one of them will be charged with Mary; you were not with them when they disputed.
3:45 And the Angels said: "O Mary, God gives good news of a word from Him. His name is the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary. Honourable in this world and in the Hereafter, and from among those who are made close."
3:46 "And he speaks to the people from the cradle, and in old age, and is from among the upright."
3:47 She said: "My Lord, how can I have a son when no human has touched me" He said: "It is thus that God creates what He wills, when He decrees a command, He merely says to it "Be", and it is."
3:48 And He teaches him the Scripture and the Wisdom and the Torah and the Injeel.
3:49 And as a messenger to the Children of Israel: "I have come to you with a sign from your Lord; that I create for you from clay the form of a bird, then I blow into it and it becomes a bird by God's leave, and I heal the blind and the leapers, and give life to the dead by God's leave, and I prophesize for you what you shall eat and what to store in your homes. In that is a sign for you if you are believers."
3:50 "And authenticating what is present with me of the Torah, and to make lawful some of that which was forbidden to you; and I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so be aware of God and obey me."
3:51 "God is my Lord and your Lord, so serve Him, this is a Straight Path."
3:52 So when Jesus felt their rejection, he said: "Who are my supporters to God" The disciples said: "We are God's supporters, we believe in God and we bear witness that we have surrendered."
3:53 "Our Lord, we believe in what You have sent down, and followed the messenger, so record us with those who bear witness."
3:54 And they schemed and God schemed, but God is the best schemer.
3:55 God said: "O Jesus, I will let you die, and raise you to Me, and cleanse you of those who have rejected, and make those who have followed you above those who rejected until the Day of Resurrection; then to Me is your return so I will judge between all of you in what it was that you disputed."
3:56 "As for those who have rejected, I will punish them severely in this world and in the Hereafter, they will have no supporters."
3:57 "And as for those who believed and did good works, God will pay them their reward; God does not like the wicked."
3:58 This We recite to you from the revelation and the wise reminder.
3:59 The example of Jesus with God is similar to that of Adam; He created him from dust, then He said to him "Be" and he was.
3:60 The truth is from your Lord, so do not be of those who doubt.
3:61 Whoever debates with you in this after the knowledge has come to you, then Say: "Let us call our children and your children, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves, then, let us call out, and we shall make God's curse upon the liars."
3:62 This is the narration of truth, there is no god but God; and God is the Noble, the Wise.
3:63 And if they turn away, then God is aware of the corruptors.
3:64 Say: "O people of the Scripture, let us come to a common understanding between us and between you; that we do not serve except God, and do not set up anything at all with Him, and that none of us takes each other as patrons beside God." If they turn away, then Say: "Bear witness that we have surrendered."
3:65 "O people of the Scripture, why do you debate us regarding Abraham when the Torah and the Injeel were not sent down except after him Do you not understand"
3:66 Here you have debated in what you knew; so why then do you debate in what you do not know God knows while you do not know.
3:67 Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Nazarene, but he was a monotheist who surrendered; he was not of those who set up partners.
3:68 The most legitimate people to Abraham are those who followed him; and this prophet, and those who believed; and God is the supporter of the believers.
3:69 A group from the people of the Scripture wished that they could misguide you, but they only misguide themselves and they do not notice.
3:70 "O people of the Scripture, why do you reject God's signs while you are bearing witness"
3:71 "O people of the Scripture, why do you dress the truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know"
3:72 And a group from among the people of the Scripture said: "Believe in what was revealed to those who believed during the beginning of the day, and reject it by the end of it, perhaps they will return."
3:73 "And do not believe except to those who follow your system." Say: "The guidance is God's guidance." "That anyone should be given similar to what you have been given, or that they debate with you at your Lord." Say: "The bounty is in God's hand, He gives it to whom He chooses, and God is Encompassing, Knowledgeable."
3:74 He specifies with His mercy whom He chooses, and God is with Great Bounty.
3:75 And from among the people of the Scripture are those whom if you entrust him with a large amount he gives it back to you, and there are those whom if you entrust with one gold coin he will not return it to you unless you are standing over him. That is because they said: "We have no obligation towards the Gentiles." They say about God lies while knowing.
3:76 Indeed, anyone who fulfils his pledge and is aware of God, then God loves the righteous.
3:77 The ones that purchase with God's pledge and their oaths a small price, those will have no portion in the Hereafter, and God will not speak to them nor look at them on the Day of Resurrection nor purify them, and they will have a painful retribution.
3:78 And from amongst them is a group that twist their tongues with the Scripture so that you may think it is from the Scripture, while it is not from the Scripture, and they say it is from God while it is not from God, and they say about God lies while they know.
3:79 It is not for a human that God would give him the Scripture and the authority and the prophethood, then he would say to the people: "Be servants to me rather than God!", rather: "Be devotees for what you have been taught of the Scripture, and for what you studied."
3:80 Nor does he order you that you take the Angels and the prophets as patrons. Would he order you to rejection after this, while you have surrendered
3:81 And God took a covenant from the prophets: "For what I have given you of the Scripture and wisdom, then a messenger will come to you authenticating what is with you. You will believe in him and support him." He said: "Do you testify, and agree to this burden", they said: "We testify." He said: "Then bear witness, and I am with you bearing witness."
3:82 Whoever turns away after that, then they are the wicked ones.
3:83 Is it other than God's system that they desire, when those in the heavens and the Earth have surrendered to Him voluntarily or by force And to Him they will be returned.
3:84 Say: "We believe in God and what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We do not make any distinction between them, and to Him we surrender."
3:85 And whoever follows other than surrender as a system, it will not be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he is of the losers.
3:86 How can God guide a people who have rejected after believing, and they witnessed that the messenger is true, and the clarity had come to them God does not guide the wicked people.
3:87 To these the punishment will be that God's curse will be upon them as well as that of the Angels and the people all together!
3:88 Eternally they will abide in it, the retribution will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.
3:89 Except those who repent after this and make amends, then God is Forgiver, Merciful.
3:90 Those who have rejected after their belief then increased in rejection, their repentance will not be accepted, they are the strayers.
3:91 Those who have rejected and died while they are rejecters, if the Earth full of gold were to be ransomed with it would not be accepted from any of them. For these there will be a painful retribution and they will have no supporters.
3:92 You will not reach piety until you spend from what you love; and whatever you spend, God is aware of it.
3:93 All the food was made lawful to the Children of Israel except what Israel forbade for himself before the Torah was sent down. Say: "Bring the Torah and recite it if you are truthful."
3:94 Whoever invents lies about God after this, these are the wicked.
3:95 Say: "God bears truth. Follow the creed of Abraham, monotheism, and he was not of those who set up partners."
3:96 The first sanctuary established for the people is the one in Bakk'a, blessed, and a guidance for the worlds.
3:97 In it are clear signs: the place of Abraham. And whoever enters it will be secure. And God is owed from mankind to make Pilgrimage to the sanctuary, whoever can make a path to it. And whoever rejects, then God has no need of the worlds.
3:98 Say: "O people of the Scripture, why do you reject God's signs, while God is witness over what you do"
3:99 Say: "O people of the Scripture, why do you repel from the path of God those who believe You wish to twist it while you were witness. And God is not unaware of what you do."
3:100 O you who believe, if you obey a group of those who received the Scripture they will turn you after your belief into rejecters!
3:101 And how can you reject when God's revelations are being recited to you and with you is His messenger And whoever holds firmly to God has been guided to the straight path.
3:102 O you who believe, revere God as He deserves to be revered, and do not die except as ones who have surrendered.
3:103 And hold firmly to the rope of God, all of you, and do not be separated. And remember God's blessing upon you when you were enemies and He united your hearts, then you became with His blessing as brothers; and you were on the verge of a pit of fire and He saved you from it; it is thus that God clarifies for you His signs that you may be guided.
3:104 And let there be a nation from amongst you which calls towards goodness, and orders kindness, and deters from evil. And these are the successful ones.
3:105 And do not be like those who separated and differed after the clarity had come to them. And for them is a painful retribution.
3:106 The Day on which faces will be whitened and faces will be blackened; as for those whose faces will be blackened: "Did you reject after believing Taste the retribution for what you rejected."
3:107 As for those whose faces are whitened, they are in God's mercy, in it they abide eternally.
3:108 These are God's revelations, We recite them to you with truth. God does not want wickedness for the worlds.
3:109 And to God is all that is in heavens and in the Earth; and to God the events will be returned.
3:110 You were the best nation that emerged for the people, you ordered towards kindness and deterred from evil, and believed in God. If the people of the Scripture believed it would have been better for them; from amongst them are believers, but most remain wicked.
3:111 They will not harm you except in being an annoyance, and if they fight you they will turn and flee, then they will not be supported.
3:112 They are stricken with humiliation wherever they are found, except through a rope from God and a rope from the people. And they stayed in God's wrath and were stricken with humiliation; that is because they were disbelieving in God's signs and killing the prophets without just cause; that is for what they disobeyed and were transgressing.
3:113 They are not all the same, from the people of the Scripture are a nation that is upright; they recite God's revelations during parts of the night and they prostrate.
3:114 They believe in God and the Last Day and order kindness and deter from evil, and they hasten in goodness; these are of the righteous ones.
3:115 And what they do of good will not be turned back, and God is aware of the righteous.
3:116 As for those who rejected, neither their money nor their children will avail them anything from God. These are the people of the Fire, in it they abide eternally.
3:117 The example of what they spend in this world is like a wind in which there is a frost; it afflicts the field of the people who wronged themselves, and thus destroys it. God did not wrong them, but it was their souls that they wronged.
3:118 O you who believe do not take protection from any besides yourselves; they will only disrupt you greatly. They wish that you suffer; the hatred appears from their mouths and what their chests hide is greater! We have made clear for you the signs if you comprehend.
3:119 Here you love them while they do not love you, and you believe in the whole Scripture. And if they meet you they Say: "We believe," and if they are alone they bite their fingers out of frustration at you. Say: "Die in your frustration, God is aware of what is in the chests."
3:120 If any good befalls you it disturbs them, and if any bad befalls you they rejoice with it. And if you are patient and righteous their planning will not harm you at all. God is Encompassing all they do.
3:121 Recall when you departed from your family to prepare for the believers their stations for battle, and God is Hearer, Knowledgeable.
3:122 When the two parties from among you were concerned that they should fail; while God was their supporter. In God the believers should trust.
3:123 God had granted you victory at Badr while you had been the lesser, so revere God that you may be thankful.
3:124 When you said to the believers: "Is it not enough for you that God would supply you with three thousand of the Angels sent down"
3:125 Indeed, if you are patient and are righteous and they come and attack you, He will supply you with five thousand of the Angels battle trained.
3:126 And God did not give this except as good news to you, and so that your hearts may be assured with it. Victory is only from God, the Noble, the Wise.
3:127 Thus He would sever a group of those who reject, or disgrace them; then they will turn back frustrated.
3:128 You will have no say in the matter, for He may pardon them, or punish them; for they are wicked.
3:129 And to God is what is in the heavens and the Earth, He forgives whom He pleases, and He punishes whom He pleases; and God is Forgiving, Merciful.
3:130 O you who believe, do not consume financial interest multiplying over, and revere God that you may succeed.
3:131 And be aware of the Fire that has been prepared for the rejecters.
3:132 And obey God and the messenger so that you may obtain mercy.
3:133 And race towards forgiveness from your Lord and a Paradise whose width encompasses the width of the heavens and the Earth; it has been prepared for the righteous.
3:134 The ones who spend in prosperity and adversity, and who repress anger, and who pardon the people; God loves the good doers.
3:135 And those who, if they commit any evil, or wrong themselves, they remember God and seek forgiveness for their sins. And who can forgive the sins except God And they do not persist in what they have done while they know.
3:136 To these the reward will be forgiveness from their Lord and gardens with rivers flowing underneath, eternally abiding in it. Excellent is the reward of the workers.
3:137 Many nations have come before you, so roam the Earth and see how the punishment for the liars was.
3:138 This is a clarification for the people and a reminder for the righteous.
3:139 Do not be weak, and do not grieve, for you will have the upper hand, if you are believers.
3:140 If you are wounded, then know that the other group is also wounded. And such are the days, We alternate them between the people, so that God will know those who believe, and so He may make witnesses from among you; and God does not like the wicked.
3:141 And God will test those who believe and He will destroy the rejecters.
3:142 Or did you think that you would enter Paradise without God knowing those who would strive amongst you and knowing those who are patient
3:143 And you used to long for death before you came upon it; so now you see it right in-front of you!
3:144 And Mohammed is but a messenger, like many messengers that have passed before him. If he dies or is killed will you turn back on your heels And whoever turns back on his heels, he will not harm God in the least. And God will reward the thankful.
3:145 It is not permitted for a soul to die except by God's leave in an appointed record. And whoever wants the rewards of this world We give him of it, and whoever wants the reward of the Hereafter, We give him of it. And We will reward the thankful.
3:146 And many prophets had a large number of devotees fighting with them. They did not waver by what afflicted them in the cause of God, nor did they become weak, nor did they become discouraged; and God loves the patient ones.
3:147 And they did not say except: "Our Lord, forgive us our sins and our shortcomings in our responsibility, and make firm our foothold, and grant us victory over the rejecting people."
3:148 So God gave them the reward of this world and the best reward of the Hereafter; and God loves the good doers.
3:149 O you who believe, if you obey those who have rejected, then they will turn you back on your heels and you will turn back as losers.
3:150 It is God who is your Patron, and He is the best victor.
3:151 We will cast terror in the hearts of those who rejected, because of what they have set up besides God while He never sent down any authority to do so, and their destiny is the Fire. Miserable is the abode of the wicked.
3:152 And God has fulfilled His promise to you, that you would overwhelm them by His leave; but then you failed and disputed in the matter and disobeyed after He showed you what you had sought. Some of you want this world, and some of you want the Hereafter. Then He let you retreat from them that He may test you; and He has pardoned you. God is with great favour over the believers.
3:153 For you were climbing to the high ground and would not even glance towards anyone, and the messenger was calling to you from behind. Therefore He gave you worry to replace your worry, so that you would not have sadness by what has passed you, or for what afflicted you, and God is Expert over what you do.
3:154 Then He sent down to you after the worry sanctity in sleepiness, it overtook a group of you; and another group was worried about themselves, they were thinking about God other than the truth, the thoughts of the days of ignorance. They Say: "Why are we involved in this affair" Say: "The entire affair is for God." They hide in their souls what they do not show to you, they Say: "If we had a say in this affair then none of us would have been killed here." Say: "If you were inside your own homes, then the ones who have been marked for death would have gone forth to their resting place." God will test what is in your chests and bring out what is in your hearts. God is Knowledgeable as to what is in the chests.
3:155 Those of you who turned away on the day that the two hosts met, it was the devil who caused them to deviate because of some of what they had gained. And God has pardoned them, for God is Forgiver, Compassionate.
3:156 O you who believe do not be like those who rejected and said to their brothers when they were marching in the land or on the offensive: "If they were here with us they would not have died nor been killed." God will make this a source of grief in their hearts, and God grants life and death, and God is watching over what you do.
3:157 And if you are killed in the cause of God or die, then forgiveness from God and mercy is far greater than all they can put together.
3:158 And if you die or are killed, then to God you will be gathered.
3:159 It was a mercy from God that you were soft towards them; had you been harsh and mean hearted, they would have dispersed from you; so pardon them and ask forgiveness for them, and consult them in the matter; but when you are convinced, then put your trust in God; God loves those who trust.
3:160 If God grants you victory then none can defeat you, and if He abandons you then who can grant you victory after Him And towards God the believers should put their trust.
3:161 It was not for any prophet that he should embezzle, and he who embezzles will be brought with what he has embezzled on the Day of Resurrection, then every soul will be given what it has earned without being wronged.
3:162 Is one who follows the pleasure of God, as one who draws the wrath of God and whose abode is Hell What a miserable destiny!
3:163 They are grades with God, and God is seer of what they do.
3:164 God has bestowed favour upon the believers by sending them a messenger from amongst themselves reciting His revelations and bettering them and teaching them the Scripture and the wisdom, and they were before in manifest darkness.
3:165 And so it was when you suffered setback; even though you afflicted them with twice as much setback; you said: "Where is this coming from" Say: "It is from yourselves." God is capable of all things.
3:166 And what you suffered on the day the two hosts met was by God's leave, and to let the believers know.
3:167 And to let those who are hypocrites know, that they were told: "Come fight in the cause of God or defend," they said: "If we knew how to fight we would have followed you." They are closer to disbelief then they are to belief. They say with their mouths what is not in their hearts, and God is aware of what they conceal.
3:168 Those who remained and said to their brothers: "If they obeyed us they would not have been killed." Say: "Then avert death away from yourselves if you are truthful!"
3:169 And do not think that those who are killed in the sake of God are dead. No, they are alive at their Lord receiving a bounty.
3:170 Happy with what God has granted them from His favour, and they rejoice for those who have yet to follow after them. There is no fear over them nor do they grieve.
3:171 They rejoice with God's bounty and favour; God will not waste the reward of the believers.
3:172 Those who have answered God and the messenger after they were afflicted with wounds. For those of them who did good and were righteous is a great reward.
3:173 The ones who the people said to them: "The people have gathered against you, so be fearful of them," but it only increased their faith and they said: "God is enough for us, and He is the best to put our trust in."
3:174 So they came back with a reward from their Lord and a bounty, no harm would touch them. And they had followed the pleasure of God, and God is the One with great pleasure.
3:175 It is only the devil trying to create fear for his allies, so do not fear them, but fear Me if you are believers.
3:176 And do not be saddened by those who rush into disbelief. They will not harm God in the least. God does not wish to make for them any share in the Hereafter, and they will have a painful retribution.
3:177 Those who have purchased rejection with belief will not harm God in the least, and they will have a painful retribution.
3:178 And let not those who reject think that We are providing for them out of the goodness of themselves. We are only providing for them so that they may increase in transgression, and they will have a humiliating retribution.
3:179 God was not to leave the believers as they were without distinguishing the rotten from the good. And God was not to let you know the future, but God chooses from His messengers whom He wishes; so believe in God and His messengers. And if you believe and are righteous, then you will have a great reward.
3:180 And let not those who are stingy with what God has given them of His bounty think that it is good for them, no, it is evil for them. They will be surrounded by what they were stingy with on the Day of Resurrection. And to God will be the inheritance of the heavens and the Earth; and God is Expert over what you do.
3:181 God has heard the words of those who said: "God is poor and we are rich!" We will record what they have said and their killing of the prophets without just cause; and We will Say: "Taste the retribution of the Fire!"
3:182 This is for what their hands have brought forth, and God does not wrong the servants.
3:183 Those who said: "God has pledged to us that we should not believe in a messenger unless he brings us an offering which the fire will not devour." Say: "Messengers have come to you before me with clarity and with what you have said, so why did you kill them if you were truthful"
3:184 If they reject you, then messengers before you were also rejected; they came with clarity and the Psalms, and the Scripture of enlightenment.
3:185 Every soul will taste death, and you will be recompensed your dues on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever is swayed from the Fire and entered into Paradise, he has indeed won. This worldly life is nothing more than the enjoyment of vanity.
3:186 We will test you in your wealth and in yourselves, and you will hear from those who have been given the Scripture from before you and from those who set up partners much annoyance.
3:187 And God took the covenant of those who were given the Scripture: "You will make it clear to the people and not conceal it." But they threw it behind their backs and purchased with it a cheap price. Miserable indeed is what they have purchased.
3:188 Do not think that those who are happy with what they have been given, and they love to be praised for what they did not do; do not think they are saved from the punishment. For them is a painful retribution.
3:189 And to God is the sovereignty of heavens and Earth, and God is capable of all things.
3:190 In the creation of heavens and Earth, and the difference between night and day, are signs for those with understanding.
3:191 Those who remember God while standing, and sitting, and on their sides, and they ponder in the creation of the heavens and the Earth: "Our Lord you did not create this without purpose, be You glorified, spare us the retribution of the Fire!"
3:192 "Our Lord, whoever You admit to the Fire has been disgraced. The wicked will have no supporters."
3:193 "Our Lord, we have heard a caller inviting to the faith: "Believe in your Lord," so we have believed. Our Lord forgive us our evil deeds and remit our sins, and take us with the obedient ones."
3:194 "Our Lord, and grant us what You have promised through Your messengers, and do not embarrass us on the Day of Resurrection. You do not break the promise."
3:195 Their Lord answered them: "I do not waste the work of any worker from among you, be you male or female, you are all as each other. For those who emigrated and were driven-out from their homes and were harmed in My cause, and they fought and were killed, I will remit for them their sins and admit them to paradises with rivers flowing beneath; a reward from God; and God has the best reward."
3:196 Do not be deceived by the success of those who disbelieved throughout the land.
3:197 A brief enjoyment, then their abode is Hell. What a miserable abode!
3:198 As for those who revere their Lord, they will have paradises with rivers flowing beneath; eternally they reside in it as a dwelling from God. What is with God is better for the obedient.
3:199 And from the people of the Scripture are those who believe in God and what was sent down to you and what was sent down to them; fearful to God, they do not purchase with His revelations a cheap price. These will have their reward with their Lord. God is quick in reckoning.
3:200 O you who believe, be patient and call for patience, and bond together and revere God that you may succeed.
