005.001 O ye who believe! Fulfil your indentures. The beast of cattle is made lawful
unto you (for food) except that which is announced unto you (herein), game being
unlawful when ye are on the pilgrimage. Lo! Allah ordaineth that which pleaseth
005.002 O ye who believe! Profane not Allah's monuments nor the Sacred Month nor
the offerings nor the garlands, nor those repairing to the Sacred House, seeking the
grace and pleasure of their Lord. But when ye have left the sacred territory, then go
hunting (if ye will). And let not your hatred of a folk who (once) stopped your going
to the inviolable place of worship seduce you to transgress; but help ye one another
unto righteousness and pious duty. Help not one another unto sin and transgression,
but keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is severe in punishment.
005.003 Forbidden unto you (for food) are carrion and blood and swineflesh, and that
which hath been dedicated unto any other than Allah, and the strangled, and the dead
through beating, and the dead through falling from a height, and that which hath been
killed by (the goring of) horns, and the devoured of wild beasts, saving that which ye
make lawful (by the death-stroke), and that which hath been immolated unto idols.
And (forbidden is it) that ye swear by the divining arrows. This is an abomination.
This day are those who disbelieve in despair of (ever harming) your religion; so fear
them not, fear Me! This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My
favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam. Whoso is forced by
hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
005.004 They ask thee (O Muhammad) what is made lawful for them. Say: (all) good
things are made lawful for you. And those beasts and birds of prey which ye have
trained as hounds are trained, ye teach them that which Allah taught you; so eat of
that which they catch for you and mention Allah's name upon it, and observe your
duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is swift to take account.
005.005 This day are (all) good things made lawful for you. The food of those who
have received the Scripture is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them. And
so are the virtuous women of the believers and the virtuous women of those who
received the Scripture before you (lawful for you) when ye give them their marriage
portions and live with them in honour, not in fornication, nor taking them as secret
concubines. Whoso denieth the faith, his work is vain and he will be among the losers
in the Hereafter.
005.006 O ye who believe! When ye rise up for prayer, wash you faces, and your
hands up to the elbows, and lightly rub your heads and (wash) your feet up to the
ankles. And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or
one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find
not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some
of it. Allah would not place a burden on you, but He would purify you and would
perfect His grace upon you, that ye may give thanks.
005.007 Remember Allah's grace upon you and His covenant by which He bound you
when ye said: We hear and we obey; And keep your duty to Allah. Lo! He knoweth
what is in the breasts (of men).
005.008 O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not
hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to
your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.
005.009 Allah hath promised those who believe and do good works: Theirs will be
forgiveness and immense reward.
005.010 And they who disbelieve and deny Our revelations, such are rightful owners
005.011 O ye who believe! Remember Allah's favour unto you, how a people were
minded to stretch out their hands against you but He withheld their hands from you;
and keep your duty to Allah. In Allah let believers put their trust.
005.012 Allah made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We raised
among them twelve chieftains, and Allah said: Lo! I am with you. If ye establish
worship and pay the poor-due, and believe in My messengers and support them, and
lend unto Allah a kindly loan, surely I shall remit your sins, and surely I shall bring
you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow. Whoso among you disbelieveth after
this will go astray from a plain road.
005.013 And because of their breaking their covenant, We have cursed them and
made hard their hearts. They change words from their context and forget a part of that
whereof they were admonished. Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all
save a few of them. But bear with them and pardon them. Lo! Allah loveth the kindly.
005.014 And with those who say: "Lo! we are Christians," We made a covenant, but
they forgot a part of that whereof they were admonished. Therefor We have stirred up
enmity and hatred among them till the Day of Resurrection, when Allah will inform
them of their handiwork.
005.015 O People of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you,
expounding unto you much of that which ye used to hide in the Scripture, and
forgiving much. now hath come unto you light from Allah and plain Scripture,
005.016 Whereby Allah guideth him who seeketh His good pleasure unto paths of
peace. He bringeth them out of darkness unto light by His decree, and guideth them
unto a straight path.
005.017 They indeed have disbelieved who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of
Mary. Say: Who then can do aught against Allah, if He had willed to destroy the
Messiah son of Mary, and his mother and everyone on earth ? Allah's is the
Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. He createth
what He will. And Allah is Able to do all things.
005.018 The Jews and Christians say: We are sons of Allah and His loved ones. Say:
Why then doth He chastise you for your sins ? Nay, ye are but mortals of His
creating. He forgiveth whom He will, and chastiseth whom He will. Allah's is the
Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and unto Him
is the journeying.
005.019 O People of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you to make
things plain unto you after an interval (of cessation) of the messengers, lest ye should
say: There came not unto us a messenger of cheer nor any warner. Now hath a
messenger of cheer and a warner come unto you. Allah is Able to do all things.
005.020 And (remember) when Moses said unto his people: O my people! Remember
Allah's favour unto you, how He placed among you prophets, and He made you kings,
and gave you that (which) He gave not to any (other) of (His) creatures.
005.021 O my people! Go into the holy land which Allah hath ordained for you. Turn
not in flight, for surely ye turn back as losers:
005.022 They said: O Moses! Lo! a giant people (dwell) therein and lo! we go not in
till they go forth from thence. When they go forth from thence, then we will enter (not
005.023 Then out spake two of those who feared (their Lord, men) unto whom Allah
had been gracious: Enter in upon them by the gate, for if ye enter by it, lo! ye will be
victorious. So put your trust (in Allah) if ye are indeed believers.
005.024 They said: O Moses! We will never enter (the land) while they are in it. So
go thou and thy Lord and fight! We will sit here.
005.025 He said: My Lord! I have control of none but myself and my brother, so
distinguish between us and the wrong-doing folk.
005.026 (Their Lord) said: For this the land will surely be forbidden them for forty
years that they will wander in the earth, bewildered. So grieve not over the
005.027 But recite unto them with truth the tale of the two sons of Adam, how they
offered each a sacrifice, and it was accepted from the one of them and it was not
accepted from the other. (The one) said: I will surely kill thee. (The other) answered:
Allah accepteth only from those who ward off (evil).
005.028 Even if thou stretch out thy hand against me to kill me, I shall not stretch out
my hand against thee to kill thee, lo! I fear Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
005.029 Lo! I would rather thou shouldst bear the punishment of the sin against me
and thine own sin and become one of the owners of the fire. That is the reward of
005.030 But (the other's) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew
him and became one of the losers.
005.031 Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide
his brother's naked corpse. He said: Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven
and so hide my brother's naked corpse ? And he became repentant.
005.032 For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a
human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he
had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved
the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of
Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.
005.033 The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and
strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have
their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such
will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful
005.034 Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is
005.035 O ye who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah, and seek the way of
approach unto Him, and strive in His way in order that ye may succeed.
005.036 As for those who disbelieve, lo! if all that is in the earth were theirs, and as
much again therewith, to ransom them from the doom on the Day of Resurrection, it
would not be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful doom.
005.037 They will wish to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth
from it. Theirs will be a lasting doom.
005.038 As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of
their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise.
005.039 But whoso repenteth after his wrongdoing and amendeth, lo! Allah will
relent toward him. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
005.040 Knowest thou not that unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens
and the earth ? He punisheth whom He will, and forgiveth whom He will. Allah is
Able to do all things.
005.041 O Messenger! Let not them grieve thee who vie one with another in the race
to disbelief, of such as say with their mouths: "We believe," but their hearts believe
not, and of the Jews: listeners for the sake of falsehood, listeners on behalf of other
folk who come not unto thee, changing words from their context and saying: If this be
given unto you, receive it, but if this be not given unto you, then beware! He whom
Allah doometh unto sin, thou (by thine efforts) wilt avail him naught against Allah.
Those are they for whom the Will of Allah is that He cleanse not their hearts. Theirs
in the world will be ignominy, and in the Hereafter an awful doom;
005.042 Listeners for the sake of falsehood! Greedy for illicit gain! If then they have
recourse unto thee (Muhammad) judge between them or disclaim jurisdiction. If thou
disclaimest jurisdiction, then they cannot harm thee at all. But if thou judgest, judge
between them with equity. Lo! Allah loveth the equitable.
005.043 How come they unto thee for judgment when they have the Torah, wherein
Allah hath delivered judgment (for them) ? Yet even after that they turn away. Such
(folk) are not believers.
005.044 Lo! We did reveal the Torah, wherein is guidance and a light, by which the
prophets who surrendered (unto Allah) judged the Jews, and the rabbis and the priests
(judged) by such of Allah's Scripture as they were bidden to observe, and thereunto
were they witnesses. So fear not mankind, but fear Me. And My revelations for a little
gain. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are disbelievers.
005.045 And We prescribed for them therein: The life for the life, and the eye for the
eye, and the nose for the nose, and the ear for the ear, and the tooth for the tooth, and
for wounds retaliation. But whoso forgoeth it (in the way of charity) it shall be
expiation for him. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are
005.046 And We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow in their footsteps, confirming
that which was (revealed) before him in the Torah, and We bestowed on him the
Gospel wherein is guidance and a light, confirming that which was (revealed) before
it in the Torah - a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off (evil).
005.047 Let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah hath revealed therein.
Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are evil-livers.
005.048 And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming
whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it. So judge between them by
that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires away from the truth
which hath come unto thee. For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced-out
way. Had Allah willed He could have made you one community. But that He may try
you by that which He hath given you (He hath made you as ye are). So vie one with
another in good works. Unto Allah ye will all return, and He will then inform you of
that wherein ye differ.
005.049 So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not
their desires, but beware of them lest they seduce thee from some part of that which
Allah hath revealed unto thee. And if they turn away, then know that Allah's Will is to
smite them for some sin of theirs. Lo! many of mankind are evil-livers.
005.050 Is it a judgment of the time of (pagan) ignorance that they are seeking ? Who
is better than Allah for judgment to a people who have certainty (in their belief) ?
005.051 O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are
friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them.
Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.
005.052 And thou seest those in whose heart is a disease race toward them, saying:
We fear lest a change of fortune befall us. And it may happen that Allah will
vouchsafe (unto thee) the victory, or a commandment from His presence. Then will
they repent them of their secret thoughts.
005.053 Then will the believers say (unto the people of the Scripture): are these they
who swore by Allah their most binding oaths that they were surely with you ? Their
works have failed, and they have become the losers.
005.054 O ye who believe! Whoso of you becometh a renegade from his religion,
(know that in his stead) Allah will bring a people whom He loveth and who love Him,
humble toward believers, stern toward disbelievers, striving in the way of Allah, and
fearing not the blame of any blamer. Such is the grace of Allah which He giveth unto
whom He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing.
005.055 Your guardian can be only Allah; and His messenger and those who believe,
who establish worship and pay the poordue, and bow down (in prayer).
005.056 And whoso taketh Allah and His messenger and those who believe for
guardian (will know that), lo! the party of Allah, they are the victorious.
005.057 O Ye who believe! Choose not for guardians such of those who received the
Scripture before you, and of the disbelievers, as make a jest and sport of your religion.
But keep your duty to Allah if ye are true believers.
005.058 And when ye call to prayer they take it for a jest and sport. That is because
they are a folk who understand not.
005.059 Say: O People of the Scripture! Do ye blame us for aught else than that we
believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed
aforetime, and because most of you are evil-livers ?
005.060 Shall I tell thee of a worse (case) than theirs for retribution with Allah ?
(Worse is the case of him) whom Allah hath cursed, him on whom His wrath hath
fallen and of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine, and who serveth
idols. Such are in worse plight and further astray from the plain road.
005.061 When they come unto you (Muslims), they say: We believe; but they came in
unbelief and they went out in the same; and Allah knoweth best what they were
005.062 And thou seest many of them vying one with another in sin and transgression
and their devouring of illicit gain. Verily evil is what they do.
005.063 Why do not the rabbis and the priests forbid their evil-speaking and their
devouring of illicit gain ? Verily evil is their handiwork.
005.064 The Jews say: Allah's hand is fettered. Their hands are fettered and they are
accursed for saying so. Nay, but both His hands are spread out wide in bounty. He
bestoweth as He will. That which hath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord is
certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them, and We have cast
among them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection. As often as they light a
fire for war, Allah extinguisheth it. Their effort is for corruption in the land, and Allah
loveth not corrupters.
005.065 If only the People of the Scripture would believe and ward off (evil), surely
We should remit their sins from them and surely We should bring them into Gardens
005.066 If they had observed the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed
unto them from their Lord, they would surely have been nourished from above them
and from beneath their feet. Among them there are people who are moderate, but
many of them are of evil conduct.
005.067 O Messenger! Make known that which hath been revealed unto thee from thy
Lord, for if thou do it not, thou wilt not have conveyed His message. Allah will
protect thee from mankind. Lo! Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk.
005.068 Say O People of the Scripture! Ye have naught (of guidance) till ye observe
the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto you from your Lord. That
which is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) from thy Lord is certain to increase the
contumacy and disbelief of many of them. But grieve not for the disbelieving folk.
005.069 Lo! those who believe, and those who are Jews, and Sabaeans, and Christians
- Whosoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right - there shall no fear
come upon them neither shall they grieve.
005.070 We made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We sent unto
them messengers. As often as a messenger came unto them with that which their souls
desired not (they became rebellious). Some (of them) they denied and some they
005.071 They thought no harm would come of it, so they were wilfully blind and
deaf. And afterward Allah turned (in mercy) toward them. Now (even after that) are
many of them wilfully blind and deaf. Allah is Seer of what they do.
005.072 They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. The
Messiah (himself) said: O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.
Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, for him Allah hath forbidden paradise. His
abode is the Fire. For evil-doers there will be no helpers.
005.073 They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the third of three; when there is
no God save the One God. If they desist not from so saying a painful doom will fall
on those of them who disbelieve.
005.074 Will they not rather turn unto Allah and seek forgiveness of Him ? For Allah
is Forgiving, Merciful.
005.075 The Messiah, son of Mary, was no other than a messenger, messengers (the
like of whom) had passed away before him. And his mother was a saintly woman.
And they both used to eat (earthly) food. See how We make the revelations clear for
them, and see how they are turned away!
005.076 Say: Serve ye in place of Allah that which possesseth for you neither hurt nor
use ? Allah it is Who is the Hearer, the Knower.
005.077 Say: O People of the Scripture! Stress not in your religion other than the
truth, and follow not the vain desires of folk who erred of old and led many astray,
and erred from a plain road.
005.078 Those of the Children of Israel who went astray were cursed by the tongue of
David, and of Jesus, son of Mary. That was because they rebelled and used to
005.079 They restrained not one another from the wickedness they did. Verily evil
was that they used to do!
005.080 Thou seest many of them making friends with those who disbelieve. Surely
ill for them is that which they themselves send on before them: that Allah will be
wroth with them and in the doom they will abide.
005.081 If they believed in Allah and the Prophet and that which is revealed unto
him, they would not choose them for their friends. But many of them are of evil
005.082 Thou wilt find the most vehement of mankind in hostility to those who
believe (to be) the Jews and the idolaters. And thou wilt find the nearest of them in
affection to those who believe (to be) those who say: Lo! We are Christians. That is
because there are among them priests and monks, and because they are not proud.
005.083 When they listen to that which hath been revealed unto the messengers, thou
seest their eyes overflow with tears because of their recognition of the Truth. They
say: Our Lord, we believe. Inscribe us as among the witnesses.
005.084 How should we not believe in Allah and that which hath come unto us of the
Truth. And (how should we not) hope that our Lord will bring us in along with
righteous folk ?
005.085 Allah hath rewarded them for that their saying - Gardens underneath which
rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. That is the reward of the good.
005.086 But those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations, they are owners of hell-
005.087 O ye who believe! Forbid not the good things which Allah hath made lawful
for you, and transgress not, Lo! Allah loveth not transgressors.
005.088 Eat of that which Allah hath bestowed on you as food lawful and good, and
keep your duty to Allah in Whom ye are believers.
005.089 Allah will not take you to task for that which is unintentional in your oaths,
but He will take you to task for the oaths which ye swear in earnest. The expiation
thereof is the feeding of ten of the needy with the average of that wherewith ye feed
your own folk, or the clothing of them, or the liberation of a slave, and for him who
findeth not (the wherewithal to do so) then a three days' fast. This is the expiation of
your oaths when ye have sworn; and keep your oaths. Thus Allah expoundeth unto
you His revelations in order that ye may give thanks.
005.090 O ye who believe! Strong drink and games of chance and idols and divining
arrows are only an infamy of Satan's handiwork. Leave it aside in order that ye may
005.091 Satan seeketh only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of strong
drink and games of chance, and to turn you from remembrance of Allah and from
(His) worship. Will ye then have done ?
005.092 Obey Allah and obey the messenger, and beware! But if ye turn away, then
know that the duty of Our messenger is only plain conveyance (of the message).
005.093 There shall be no sin (imputed) unto those who believe and do good works
for what they may have eaten (in the past). So be mindful of your duty (to Allah), and
believe, and do good works; and again: be mindful of your duty, and believe; and
once again: be mindful of your duty, and do right. Allah loveth the good.
005.094 O ye who believe! Allah will surely try you somewhat (in the matter) of the
game which ye take with your hands and your spears, that Allah may know him who
feareth Him in secret. Whoso transgresseth after this, for him there is a painful doom.
005.095 O ye who believe! Kill no wild game while ye are on the pilgrimage. Whoso
of you killeth it of set purpose he shall pay its forfeit in the equivalent of that which
he hath killed, of domestic animals, the judge to be two men among you known for
justice, (the forfeit) to be brought as an offering to the Ka'bah; or, for expiation, he
shall feed poor persons, or the equivalent thereof in fasting, that he may taste the evil
consequences of his deed. Allah forgiveth whatever (of this kind) may have happened
in the past, but whoso relapseth, Allah will take retribution from him. Allah is
Mighty, Able to Requite (the wrong).
005.096 To hunt and to eat the fish of the sea is made lawful for you, a provision for
you and for seafarers; but to hunt on land is forbidden you so long as ye are on the
pilgrimage. Be mindful of your duty to Allah, unto Whom ye will be gathered.
005.097 Allah hath appointed the Ka'bah, the Sacred House, a standard for mankind,
and the Sacred Month and the offerings and the garlands. That is so that ye may know
that Allah knoweth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and
that Allah is Knower of all things.
005.098 Know that Allah is severe in punishment, but that Allah (also) is Forgiving,
005.099 The duty of the messenger is only to convey (the message). Allah knoweth
what ye proclaim and what ye hide.
005.100 Say: The evil and the good are not alike even though the plenty of the evil
attract thee. So be mindful of your duty to Allah, O men of understanding, that ye
005.101 O ye who believe! Ask not of things which, if they were made unto you,
would trouble you; but if ye ask of them when the Qur'an is being revealed, they will
be made known unto you. Allah pardoneth this, for Allah is Forgiving, Clement.
005.102 A folk before you asked (for such disclosures) and then disbelieved therein.
005.103 Allah hath not appointed anything in the nature of a Bahirah or a Sa'ibah or a
Wasilah or a Hami, but those who disbelieve invent a lie against Allah. Most of them
have no sense.
005.104 And when it is said unto them: Come unto that which Allah hath revealed
and unto the messenger, they say: Enough for us is that wherein we found our fathers.
What! Even though their fathers had no knowledge whatsoever, and no guidance ?
005.105 O ye who believe! Ye have charge of your own souls. He who erreth cannot
injure you if ye are rightly guided. Unto Allah ye will all return; and then He will
inform you of what ye used to do.
005.106 O ye who believe! Let there be witnesses between you when death draweth
nigh unto one of you, at the time of bequest - two witnesses, just men from among
you, or two others from another tribe, in case ye are campaigning in the land and the
calamity of death befall you. Ye shall empanel them both after the prayer, and, if ye
doubt, they shall be made to swear by Allah (saying): We will not take a bribe, even
though it were (on behalf of) a near kinsman nor will we hide the testimony of Allah,
for then indeed we should be of the sinful.
005.107 But then, if it is afterwards ascertained that both of them merit (the suspicion
of) sin, let two others take their place of those nearly concerned, and let them swear
by Allah, (saying): Verily our testimony is truer than their testimony and we have not
transgressed (the bounds of duty), for them indeed we should be of the evil-doers.
005.108 Thus it is more likely that they will bear true witness or fear that after their
oaths the oaths (of others) will be taken. So be mindful of your duty (to Allah) and
hearken. Allah guideth not the froward folk.
005.109 In the day when Allah gathereth together the messengers, and saith: What
was your response (from mankind) ? they say: We have no knowledge. Lo! Thou,
only Thou art the Knower of Things Hidden,
005.110 When Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favour unto thee
and unto thy mother; how I strengthened thee with the holy Spirit, so that thou
spakest unto mankind in the cradle as in maturity; and how I taught thee the Scripture
and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and how thou didst shape of clay as it
were the likeness of a bird by My permission, and didst blow upon it and it was a bird
by My permission, and thou didst heal him who was born blind and the leper by My
permission; and how thou didst raise the dead by My permission; and how I
restrained the Children of Israel from (harming) thee when thou camest unto them
with clear proofs, and those of them who disbelieved exclaimed: This is naught else
than mere magic;
005.111 And when I inspired the disciples, (saying): Believe in Me and in My
messenger, they said: We believe. Bear witness that we have surrendered (unto Thee)
"we are muslims".
005.112 When the disciples said: O Jesus, son of Mary! Is thy Lord able to send down
for us a table spread with food from heaven ? He said: Observe your duty to Allah, if
ye are true believers.
005.113 (They said:) We wish to eat thereof, that we may satisfy our hearts and know
that thou hast spoken truth to us, and that thereof we may be witnesses.
005.114 Jesus, son of Mary, said: O Allah, Lord of us! Send down for us a table
spread with food from heaven, that it may be a feast for us, for the first of us and for
the last of us, and a sign from Thee. Give us sustenance, for Thou art the Best of
005.115 Allah said: Lo! I send it down for you. And whoso disbelieveth of you
afterward, him surely will I punish with a punishment wherewith I have not punished
any of (My) creatures.
005.116 And when Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind:
