In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

98:1. Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, were not going to depart (from their ways) until there should come to them Clear Evidence,-

98:2. An messenger from God, rehearsing scriptures kept pure and holy:

98:3. Wherein are laws (or decrees) right and straight.

98:4. Nor did the People of the Book make schisms, until after there came to them Clear Evidence.

98:5. And they have been commanded no more than this: To worship God, offering Him sincere devotion, being true (in faith); to establish regular prayer; and to practise regular charity; and that is the Religion Right and Straight.

98:6. Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.

98:7. Those who have faith and do righteous deeds,- they are the best of creatures.

98:8. Their reward is with God: Gardens of Eternity, beneath which rivers flow; they will dwell therein for ever; God well pleased with them, and they with Him: all this for such as fear their Lord and Cherisher.
