AL BAYYINAH (THE CLEAR PROOF)
(Revealed at Medinah - contains 8 verses - 1 section)
[Bayyinah 98:1] The disbelieving People of the Book(s) and the polytheists would not have left their religion until the clear proof came to them.
[Bayyinah 98:2] (The clear proof is) the Noble Messenger from Allah, who reads the pure pages.
[Bayyinah 98:3] In which are written proper affairs.
[Bayyinah 98:4] Nor did the People of the Book(s) get divided until after the clear proof came to them.
[Bayyinah 98:5] And they were ordered only to worship Allah, believing purely in Him – devoted solely (to Him), and to establish the prayer and to pay the obligatory charity – and this is the straight religion.
[Bayyinah 98:6] Indeed all disbelievers, the People of the Book(s) and the polytheists, are in the fire of hell – they will remain in it for ever; it is they who are the worst among the creation.
[Bayyinah 98:7] Indeed those who accepted faith and did good deeds – it is they who are the best among the creation.
[Bayyinah 98:8] Their reward is - with their Lord - everlasting Gardens of Eden beneath which rivers flow, in which they will abide for ever and ever; Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him; this is for one who fears his Lord.
