98:2  An messenger 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
