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.
