3:1  Alif, Lam, Mim.
3:2  Allah, there is no god but Him, He is the Living, the Eternal.
3:3  He revealed the book to you with the truth, confirming that which came before it, and He revealed the Torah and the Injil.
3:4  An earlier guidance for mankind, and He revealed the distinction (between right and wrong). For those who reject the signs of Allah there is severe punishment, and Allah is mighty and vengeful.
3:5  Nothing in the earth or the heaven is hidden from Allah.
3:6  He is the One who shapes you in the wombs as He pleases. There is no god but Him, the mighty, the wise.
3:7  He is the One who sent to you the book of which there are decisive verses, which are the core of the book, and other ambiguous ones. As for those in whose hearts there is distraction, they follow that of it which is ambiguous in an attempt to cause temptation and seeking a specific outcome, yet no-one knows its outcome but Allah. And those firm in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord. And only those with understanding remember.
3:8  Our Lord, do not distract our hearts after You have guided us and grant us mercy from You, for You are the one who gives.
3:9  Our Lord, you will gather all people for a day without doubt, for Allah does not break the promise.
3:10  Those who reject (the truth), neither their wealth nor their children will benefit them against Allah. They are the fuel of the fire.
3:11  Like the practice of the family of Pharaoh and those before them, they denied our signs, so Allah seized them on account of their sins. Allah is severe in punishment.
3:12  Say to those who reject (the truth): You will be overcome and gathered in hell, a bad place to be.
3:13  There is a sign for you in the two parties who met, one party fighting in the way of Allah and another rejecting (the truth), which outwardly appeared to them to be twice (their strength), yet Allah helps with His victory whom He pleases. In that is a lesson for those who see.
3:14  The love of desires (aroused) by women and children and accumulated treasures of gold and silver and branded horses and cattle and land appeals to people. That is the provision of this world, and with Allah is the best return.
3:15  Say: Shall I inform you of better than that. For those who beware (of Allah) there are gardens with their Lord through which rivers flow � they will remain there � and pure partners and contentment from Allah, and Allah sees (His) servants.
3:16  Those who say, our Lord, we believed, so forgive us our sins and guard us from the punishment of the fire.
3:17  The patient, the truthful, the humble, the charitable, and those who ask forgiveness at dawn.
3:18  Allah bears witness that there is no god but Him, and so do the angels and those with knowledge; He upholds justice. There is no god but Him, the mighty and wise.
3:19  The obligation towards Allah is submission (Islam), and the people of the book only differed out of jealousy amongst each other after having received the knowledge. If someone denies the signs of Allah, Allah is swift in counting.
3:20  And if they dispute with you say: I have submitted fully to Allah and so have those who follow me. And ask those who were given the book and the unlettered people: Do you submit? Then if they submit, they are guided, and if they turn away, your only duty is to convey, and Allah sees (His) servants.
3:21  Those who reject the signs of Allah and kill the prophets without justification and kill those who command justice amongst people, announce to them a painful punishment.
3:22  They are the ones whose work will be wasted in this world and in the hereafter and they have no helpers.
3:23  What do you make of those who received a portion of the book being called to the book of Allah to judge between them, then a party amongst them turned away in opposition?
3:24  This is because they say: The fire will only touch us a limited number of days. And their inventions mislead them in their religion.
3:25  How then when We gather them to a day without doubt and every soul is repaid what it has earned and they will not be wronged?
3:26  Say: O Allah, King of the kingdom, You give the kingdom to whom You please and take away the kingdom from whom You please, You honour whom You please and humiliate whom You please, the good is in Your hand, You have power over of all things.
3:27  You blend the night into the day and the day into the night, and You bring out the living from the dead and the dead from the living, and You provide for whom You please without counting.
3:28  The believers must not take those who reject (the truth) as protectors besides the believers. If someone does so then he has nothing to do with Allah, except if he does so as a precaution against them, and Allah cautions you about Himself, and to Allah is the journey.
3:29  Say, whether you hide what is inside you or reveal it, Allah knows it. He knows what is in the heavens and in the earth, and Allah has power over all things.
3:30  On the day when every soul finds all the good she has done present and all the bad she has done, she wishes there was a long distance between it and her. And Allah cautions you about Himself, and Allah is kind to (His) servants.
3:31  Say: If you love Allah, then follow me and Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is forgiving and merciful.
3:32  Say: Obey Allah and the messenger. But if you turn away, then Allah does not love those who reject (the truth).
3:33  Allah chose Adam and Nuh (Noah) and the family of Ibrahim (Abraham) and the family of ´Imran over everybody else.
3:34  They are descendants one of the other, and Allah listens and knows.
3:35  When the wife of ´Imran said: My Lord, I have promised the content of my womb to be devoted to You, so accept it from me, for You are [the One] who listens and knows.
3:36  So when she delivered it she said: My Lord, I have delivered a female � and Allah knew best what she had delivered, and the male and the female are not alike � and I have named her Maryam (Mary) and I seek refuge in You for her and her descendants from the cursed devil.
3:37  So her Lord accepted her in the best way and made her grow up well and entrusted her care to Zakariya (Zachariah); whenever Zakariya entered her place of seclusion he found provision with her. He asked: O Maryam (Mary), where did you get this from? She said, it is from Allah, Allah provides for whom He pleases without counting.
3:38  Upon this Zakariya called His Lord, saying: My Lord, give me a good offspring from You, for You hear the prayer.
3:39  Then the angels called him whilst he was standing in prayer in the secluded place that Allah gives you good news of Yahya (John) as confirmation of a word from Allah and noble and chaste and a prophet from amongst the righteous.
3:40  He said: My Lord, how can I have a son when old age has caught up with me and my wife is barren? He said: thus Allah does what He pleases.
3:41  He said: My Lord, appoint a sign for me. He said: Your sign is that you will not speak to people for three days other than by gestures; and remember your Lord much and give praise in the evening and the morning.
3:42  And when the angels said: O Maryam (Mary), Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above all the women of the world.
3:43  O Maryam (Mary), be humble towards your Lord and prostrate and bow down with those who do.
3:44  This is information We reveal to you from the unseen. You were not amongst them when they drew straws as to who should take care of Maryam (Mary) and you were not amongst them when they argued.
3:45  When the angels said: O Maryam (Mary), Allah gives you good news of a word from Him whose name shall be the Messiah ´Isa (Jesus) son of Maryam, honoured in this world and amongst those brought close in the Hereafter.
3:46  He will talk to people whilst in the cradle and in adulthood and will be amongst the righteous.
3:47  She said: My Lord, how can I have a son when no man has touched me. He said: Thus Allah creates what He pleases. When He decides a matter then He says to it: Be � and it is.
3:48  And He will teach him the book, the wisdom, the Torah and the Injil.
3:49  And he will be a messenger to the Children of Israel saying "I have come to you with a sign from your Lord; I will create for you from clay the shape of a bird and breathe into it so that it will be a (real) bird by permission of Allah, and I will heal the blind and the leper, and will bring back to life the dead by permission of Allah, and I will tell you what you eat and what you store in your houses. In that is a sign for you if you are believers.
3:50  And confirming that which went before me from the Torah and to make lawful for you some of that which was forbidden for you. I have come to you with a sign from my Lord, so beware of Allah and obey me.
3:51  Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so serve Him. This is a straight path."
3:52  Then, when ´Isa (Jesus) noticed the denial amongst them, he said: "Who are my helpers towards Allah?" The disciples said: "We are the helpers of Allah, we believe in Allah and be you a witness that we have submitted.
3:53  Our Lord, we believe in what You have revealed and follow the messenger, so list us amongst the witnesses."
3:54  And they schemed and Allah schemed, and Allah is the best of schemers.
3:55  When Allah said: "O ´Isa (Jesus), I will take you away and raise you to Myself and purify you and make those who follow you above those who reject (the truth) until the day of resurrection, then your return will be to Me and I will judge between you with regard to what you used to differ in.
3:56  As for those who reject (the truth), I will punish them with a severe punishment in the world and the hereafter and they will have no helpers.
3:57  And as for those who believe and do good work, they will be given their reward. Allah does not love the wrongdoers."
3:58  This is what We recite to you from the signs and the wise reminder.
3:59  The likeness of ´Isa (Jesus) with Allah is as the likeness of Adam: He created him from soil and then said to him: Be - and he is.
3:60  The truth from your Lord, so be not amongst the doubters.
3:61  So if anyone disputes with you about it after you have received knowledge then say: Come, let us call our children and your children, and our women and your women, and ourselves and yourselves, then we shall pray for the curse of Allah to be brought upon the liars.
3:62  This is indeed the true story. There is no god but Allah, and Allah is the mighty and wise.
3:63  Then if they turn away, Allah knows the corrupters.
3:64  Say, oh people of the Book, come to a common word between us and you that we serve none but Allah and do not associate anything with Him nor take each other as overlords instead of Allah. Then if they turn away, say: Be witnesses that we have submitted.
3:65  Oh people of the Book, why do you dispute about Ibrahim (Abraham) when the Torah and the Injil were only revealed after him � don´t you think?
3:66  You are the ones who used to dispute about that which you had knowledge of, so why do you dispute about that which you have no knowledge of? Allah knows and you do not know.
3:67  Ibrahim (Abraham) was neither Jew nor Christian, he was one dedicated to Allah, submitted to Him (a Muslim), and was not amongst the idolaters.
3:68  The closest to Ibrahim (Abraham) are surely those who follow him and this prophet and those who believe, and Allah is closest to the believers.
3:69  A group amongst the people of the Book would love to lead you astray but they only lead themselves astray without realising it.
3:70  Oh people of the Book, why do you reject the signs of Allah when you witness them?
3:71  Oh people of the Book, why do you clothe the truth in falsehood and hide the truth knowingly?
3:72  A group amongst the people of the Book said: Let´s believe in that which was revealed to the believers during the day and reject it at the end of it so that they revert.
3:73  And do not believe anyone unless he follows your religion - Say: the only guidance is the guidance of Allah - (and do not accept) that he has received something similar to what you have received nor (accept) that he may dispute with you before your Lord. Say: All benefit is in Allah´s hand who gives it to whom He pleases, and Allah is far-reaching and knows.
3:74  He selects for His mercy whom He pleases, and Allah possesses immense favours.
3:75  Among the people of the book are some who, if you entrust them with a large amount, they will return it to you, and among them are some who, if you entrust them with a single coin, will not return it to you unless you keep constantly at it. This is because they say: There is no redress against us concerning the gentiles; and they speak a lie against Allah knowingly.
3:76  But no, if someone fulfils his agreements and bewares, then Allah loves those who beware (of Him).
3:77  Those who sell their agreement with Allah and their oaths for a small gain, they will have no share in the hereafter and Allah will not speak to them nor look at them on the day of resurrection nor will He purify them, and painful punishment awaits them.
3:78  And amongst them there is a faction who distort the book in their speech so that you consider it to be part of the book when it is not part of the book, and they say it is from Allah when it is not from Allah, and they speak a lie against Allah knowingly.
3:79  And no person has a right that when Allah gives him the book and sound judgement and prophethood he should say to people be my servants instead of Allah´s, but he should say: guide people to your Lord on account of what you know and teach of the book and what you study.
3:80  Nor would he command you to take the angels and prophets as lords; is he going to command you to reject (the truth) after you have submitted?
3:81  And when Allah took a promise from the prophets that after I gave you part of the book and the wisdom and then there comes to you a messenger who confirms that which you have, you will believe in him and help him, He said: do you agree and take my covenant on that basis? They said: We agree. He said: Then be witnesses and I shall be a witness with you.
3:82  Then if anyone turns away afterwards they will be the sinful.
3:83  Do they then seek a different religion to that of Allah when everything in the heavens and the earth submits to Him (both) obediently and reluctantly and to Him will they be brought back?
3:84  Say: We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Ibrahim (Abraham) and Isma#il (Ishmael) and Ishaq (Isaac) and Ya´qub (Jacob) and the tribes and what was given to Musa (Moses) and ´Isa (Jesus) and the prophets from their Lord, we make no difference between any of them, and we submit to Him.
3:85  And if anyone seeks another religion than Islam (submission), it will not be accepted from him and he will be amongst the losers in the hereafter.
3:86  How is Allah going to guide a people who reject (the truth) after they believed and were witnesses that the messenger is truthful and came to them with clear proofs. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.
3:87  Their reward will be that that the curse of Allah and the angels and all mankind will be upon them.
3:88  They shall remain in it; the punishment shall not be lightened for them and they shall not be given time off.
3:89  Except those who repent afterwards and make amends, for Allah is forgiving, merciful.
3:90  Those who reject (the truth) after they believed and then increase in rejection, their repentance will not be accepted and those are the ones who have lost their way.
3:91  Those who reject (the truth) and die in the state of rejection, the weight of the earth in gold would not be accepted from any of them in redemption. Painful punishment awaits those and they will have no helpers.
3:92  You will not achieve righteousness until you spend from that which you love. And whatever you spend, Allah knows of it.
3:93  All food was permitted to the Children of Israel except what Israel forbade for himself before the Torah was revealed. Say: bring the Torah and recite it if you are truthful.
3:94  Therefore, if someone invents a lie against Allah afterwards, then they are the wrongdoers.
3:95  Say: Allah has spoken the truth, therefore follow the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham), sincerely devoted, for he was not one of the idolaters.
3:96  The very first house placed for people (to worship at) is that in Bakkah as a blessing and guidance for all the worlds.
3:97  It contains clear signs, the location of Ibrahim (Abraham), and whoever used to enter it was safe, and Allah obliges mankind to make the pilgrimage (Hajj) to the House if he finds a way to do so, and whoever denies it, Allah is independent of all the worlds.
3:98  Say: Oh people of the (previously revealed) Book, why do you reject the signs of Allah when Allah is a witness of what you do?
3:99  Say: Oh people of the book, why do you divert somebody who believes from the way of Allah desiring it to be crooked when you are witnesses and Allah is not unaware of what you do?
3:100  Oh you believers, if you follow a faction of those who were given the book, they would turn you back to reject (the truth) after your belief.
3:101  Yet, how should you reject (it) when the signs of Allah are recited to you and His messenger is amongst you. He who holds on to Allah has already been guided on to a straight path.
3:102  Oh you believers, beware of Allah with the awareness due to Him and do not die except in submission to Him (as Muslims).
3:103  And hold on to the connection with Allah altogether and do not break up, and remember Allah´s favour upon you when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became brothers by His blessing, and you were at the brink of falling into the fire and He rescued you from it, this is how Allah explains His signs to you so that you may be guided.
3:104  And there should be amongst you a community who call to what is good and command good conduct and forbid wrongdoing, and those will be the successful.
3:105  And be not like those who break up and differ after the clear proofs came to them, severe punishment awaits those.
3:106  On the day when faces will be whitened and faces will be blackened. As for those whose faces will be blackened: Did you reject (the truth) after your belief? Then taste the punishment on account of your rejection.
3:107  As for those whose faces will be whitened, they are in the mercy of Allah in which they remain.
3:108  Those are the signs of Allah which We recite to you in truth, and Allah does not will oppression for the worlds.
3:109  And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and what is on earth, and to Allah return all things.
3:110  You are the best community brought forth for mankind: you command good conduct and forbid wrongdoing and believe in Allah. If the people of the Book believed, it would have been better for them. Amongst them are believers, but most of them are sinful.
3:111  They will not harm you except by insult, and if they fight you they will turn to flee and will then not be helped.
3:112  Humiliation is brought upon them wherever they are found except (when holding on to) the connection to Allah and the connection to the people; and they are burdened with the anger of Allah and misery is brought upon them; this is because they rejected the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right; this is because they disobeyed and were transgressing.
3:113  They are not (all) the same. Amongst the people of the Book there is an upright community who read the signs of Allah during part of the night and prostrate.
3:114  They believe in Allah and the last day and command good conduct and forbid wrongdoing and hasten towards good deeds, and they are amongst the righteous.
3:115  Whatever good they did will not be denied to them, and Allah knows those who beware (of Him).
3:116  Those who reject (the truth), neither their wealth nor children will help them the least against Allah, and those are the inmates of the fire where they will remain.
3:117  The likeness of what they spend in the life of this world is that of a freezing wind which hit the harvest of people who have wronged themselves and destroyed it, and Allah did not wrong them but they wronged themselves.
3:118  Oh you believers, do not take confidants from outside your own; they will not stop harming you, they love what ruins you, their hatred is already apparent from (what comes out of) their mouths, and what they hide in their chests is more severe. We have already explained the signs to you if you understand.
3:119  There you are the ones who have affection for them, whereas they have no affection for you, and you believe in all of the book, and when they meet you they say "we believe", and when they are alone they bite their fingers against you out of anger. Say, die from your anger, for Allah knows what is kept inside.
3:120  When good befalls you, it hurts them, and when harm befalls you they rejoice in it, but if you are patient and beware (of Allah), their deception will not harm you at all, for Allah surrounds what they do.
3:121  And when you left your home early in the morning to order the believers for battle, and Allah listens and knows.
3:122  When two groups amongst you tended to despair whilst Allah is their protector, and on Allah should the believers rely.
3:123  And Allah already gave you victory at Badr when you were few, so beware of Allah in order to be grateful.
3:124  When you said to the believers: will it not suffice you that your Lord helps you with three thousand angels sent down?
3:125  More so, if you have patience and beware (of Allah) when they come upon you suddenly, then your Lord will help you with five thousand marked angels.
3:126  And Allah only gave this as good news for you and to contend your hearts with it, and victory is only from Allah the mighty and wise.
3:127  So that He cuts off a portion of those who reject (the truth) or subdues them to make them turn back in failure.
3:128  You have no say in the matter. Or He may turn back to them or punish them because they are wrongdoers.
3:129  And to Allah belongs what is in the heavens and on earth. He forgives whom He pleases and punishes whom He pleases, and Allah is forgiving and merciful.
3:130  Oh you believers, do not devour usury multiplied several times and beware of Allah so that you may be successful.
3:131  And beware of the fire which has been prepared for those who reject (the truth).
3:132  And obey Allah and the messenger so that you may find mercy.
3:133  And hurry towards the forgiveness from your Lord and a garden whose width is that of the heavens and the earth, which has been prepared for those who beware (of Allah).
3:134  Those who spend in ease and hardship and those who restrain their anger and those who are gentle towards people, and Allah loves those who do good.
3:135  And those who, if they have committed an indecency or wronged themselves, remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their sins - for who forgives sins except Allah? - and did not knowingly persist in what they did.
3:136  For those the reward is forgiveness from their Lord and gardens through which rivers flow where they will remain; blessed is the reward of those who work.
3:137  Examples have already passed before you, so travel on the earth and see what the outcome was like for the deniers.
3:138  This is a clear exposition for mankind and a guidance and admonition for those who beware (of Allah).
3:139  And do not lose heart nor grieve and you will come out on top if you are believers.
3:140  If a wound has afflicted you, then a similar wound has also afflicted the people, and we alter these days amongst mankind and for Allah to know those who believe and to take witnesses from you, and Allah does not love the wrongdoers.
3:141  And for Allah to test those who believe and to destroy those who reject (the truth).
3:142  Or did you count on entering the garden without Allah knowing those who strive amongst you and knowing the patient?
3:143  And you already hoped for death before you met it, and you already saw it with open eyes.
3:144  And Muhammad is only a messenger who was preceded by the messengers, so if he dies or is killed, will you turn back on your heels? And if someone turns back on his heels he will not harm Allah at all. And Allah will repay the grateful.
3:145  And no soul will die without Allah´s permission as a fixed appointment, and if someone wants the reward of this world, We give him of it, and if someone wants the reward of the hereafter, We give him of it, and We will repay the grateful.
3:146  And how many a prophet was there with whom a large multitude fought, and they did not waver on account of what happened to them in the cause of Allah nor weaken or give in, and Allah loves the patient.
3:147  And all they said was: Our Lord, forgive us our sins and excesses in our affair and make our foothold firm and help us against people who reject (the truth).
3:148  So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the best reward of the hereafter, and Allah loves those who do good.
3:149  Oh you believers, if you obey those who reject (the truth) they will make you turn back and you will turn back as losers.
3:150  But Allah is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.
3:151  We shall place fear in the hearts of those who reject (the truth) on account of having associated with Allah that for which He has not sent any authority, and their abode is the fire and miserable is the home of the wrongdoers.
3:152  And Allah already made His promise come true for you when you rooted them by His permission, until you weakened and argued about the matter and disobeyed after He showed you what you loved - among you are those who want the world and among you are those who want the hereafter; then He turned you away from them in order to test you, and He has already forgiven you, and Allah is full of generosity for the believers.
3:153  When you ascended and did not stop for anybody whilst the messenger called you from behind you, and additional grieve afflicted you so that you would not worry about what had escaped you nor about what had befallen you, and Allah knows what you do.
3:154  Then after this grief He sent you a calming safety which enveloped a group amongst you, and another group troubled themselves with improper thoughts about Allah in the manner of the assumptions of (the days of) ignorance, saying do we have any choice in this matter? Say the matter is entirely up to Allah. They hide in themselves what they do not disclose to you, saying that if we had any choice in the matter we would not have been killed here. Say, had you stayed at home, those who were destined to be killed would have come out, and thus Allah tests what you keep inside and purifies your hearts, and Allah knows what is kept inside.
3:155  Those amongst you who turned to flee when the two troops met, the devil wanted to make them slip on account of some of their deeds, and Allah has already let them off, for Allah is forgiving and gentle.
3:156  Oh you believers, do not be like those who reject (the truth) and say to their brothers when they travel or attack: if they had been with us they would not have died or been killed, so that Allah makes them feel this as a loss in their hearts, and Allah gives life and death, and Allah sees what you do.
3:157  And if you were killed in the way of Allah or died, the forgiveness and mercy from Allah would be better than what they amass.
3:158  And if you died or were killed you would be gathered to Allah.
3:159  It is out of mercy from Allah that you are lenient towards them. And if you were harsh with an unforgiving heart, they would disperse around you, so let them off and forgive them and consult them in the matter, and when you have decided, then rely on Allah, for Allah loves those who rely (on Him).
3:160  If Allah helps you, then nobody can overcome you, and if He abandons you, then who is there to help you afterwards? And on Allah let the believers rely.
3:161  It is not befitting for a prophet to take advantage (of anyone), whoever takes advantage will bring what he has taken advantage of on the day of resurrection, then every soul will be given in full what it has earned and they will not be wronged.
3:162  Is he who pursues the approval of Allah like him who brings upon himself disapproval from Allah and his refuge is hell, a bad destination?
3:163  They have (different) stages with Allah, and Allah sees what they do.
3:164  Allah already bestowed His favours on the believers when He raised amongst them a messenger of their own kind who recites to them His signs and purifies them and teaches them the book and the wisdom, when before that they were in clear error.
3:165  Or is it that when a misfortune afflicts you after you already afflicted twice as much, you say: Where did this come from? Say: This came from yourselves, for Allah is able to do anything.
3:166  What afflicted you on the day the two troops met was with the permission of Allah and in order for Him to know the believers.
3:167  And to know those who pretend, and they were told: Come and fight in the way of Allah or defend yourselves, and they said: Had we known about a fight we would have followed you. They were closer to rejecting belief that day than to believing. They say with their mouths what is not in their hearts, and Allah knows what they hide.
3:168  Those who say to their brothers, whilst staying behind, if they had followed us they would not have been killed; say: then avert death from yourselves if you are truthful.
3:169  And don´t count those who were killed in the way of Allah as dead, but they are alive and have provision with their Lord.
3:170  Rejoicing about what Allah has given them from His favours and glad that those behind them who have not met them yet will have no fear nor worry.
3:171  Glad about the blessing from Allah and favours and that Allah does not waste the reward of the believers.
3:172  Those who responded to Allah and the messenger after being afflicted by the wound, for those amongst them who did good and bewared there is immense reward.
3:173  Those to whom the people said: The people have gathered against you, so fear them, and it increased them in faith and they said: Allah is enough for us and most excellent to be relied upon.
3:174  So they turned around by the favour and generosity of Allah without any harm touching them and pursued the approval of Allah, and Allah possesses immense favours.
3:175  It is only the devil who scares those who seek his protection, so do not fear him but fear Me, if you are believers.
3:176  And do not let those who rush to disbelief make you sad, for they will not harm Allah at least, Allah wills to not give them a share in the hereafter and severe punishment awaits them.
3:177  Those who exchange belief for rejection, they will not harm Allah the least, and painful punishment awaits them.
3:178  And those who reject (the truth) should not count it as good for them that We give them time; We give them time so that they increase in sin, and humiliating punishment awaits them.
3:179  Allah would not leave the believers in the state you are in until He would separate the worthless from the good, and Allah would not give you access to the unseen, but Allah chooses from His messengers whom He pleases, so believe in Allah and His messengers, and if you believe and beware, an immense reward awaits you.
3:180  And do not count that those who withhold what Allah has given them of His favours have the better (deal), but they have the worse (deal), that which they withheld will surround them on the day of resurrection, and to Allah belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earth, and Allah knows what you do.
3:181  Allah has heard the talk of those who said Allah is poor and we are rich, We will write down what they said as well as their killing of the prophets without right, and We will say: taste the punishment of burning.
3:182  This is for the deeds you have sent ahead and that Allah does not wrong (His) servants.
3:183  Those who said: Allah took a covenant from us that we should not believe in any messenger until he comes with a sacrifice consumed by fire; say: messengers came to you before with clear proofs and with what you said, so why did you kill them if you are truthful?
3:184  So if they deny you, they already denied messengers before you who came with clear proofs and scriptures and the enlightened book.
3:185  Every soul must taste death and they will be receiving their rewards on the day of resurrection, so whoever is removed from the fire and entered into the garden is successful, and the life of this world is only a passing provision.
3:186  You will be tested in your property and your selves and you will hear from those who were given the book before you and from the idolaters much insult, but if you have patience and beware then this is one of the firmest things (to do).
3:187  And when Allah took a promise from those given the book that you will explain it to the people and not hide it, then they threw it behind their backs and sold it for a small price, so bad is what they buy (with it).
3:188  Don´t count those who rejoice in what they were given and love to be praised for what they did not do, don´t count that they will escape from the punishment, and a painful punishment awaits them.
3:189  And to Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and Allah is able to do anything.
3:190  In the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alteration of night and day are indeed signs for those with understanding.
3:191  Those who remember Allah standing, sitting and on their sides and reflect about the creation of the heavens and the earth: Our Lord, you have not created this without purpose, glory be to You, so guard us from the punishment of the fire.
3:192  Our Lord, whoever you enter into the fire You have humiliated, and there is no helper for the wrongdoers.
3:193  Our Lord, we heard a caller call to faith that you should believe in your Lord, so we believed, our Lord so forgive us our sins and reject our bad deeds and make us die with the righteous.
3:194  Our Lord, and give us what You promised us through Your messengers and do not humiliate us on the day of resurrection, for You do not break the promise.
3:195  So their Lord answered them that I do not waste the work of a worker, be they male or female, one of you belong to another, so those who emigrated and were forced out of their homes and harmed in the way of Allah and fought and killed, I will reject their bad deeds and enter them into gardens through which rivers flow, a reward from Allah, and Allah has the best reward.
3:196  Let not the movements of those who reject (the truth) in the country mislead you.
3:197  A short provision, then their abode is hell, a bad place to be.
3:198  But for those who beware of their Lord there are gardens through which rivers flow where they will remain, a gift from Allah, and what is with Allah is better for the righteous.
3:199  Yet amongst the people of the book there are those who believe in Allah and what has been revealed to you and what has been revealed to them, humble before Allah, not selling Allah´s signs for a small price; those will have their reward with their Lord, and Allah is swift in counting.
3:200  Oh you believers, have patience and hold out and hold together and beware of Allah so that you may be successful.
