It is inconceivable that the unbelievers among the people of the earlier revelations and the idolaters could have ever changed their ways until there had come to them the clear evidence of the truth:
a Messenger from God reciting revelations blest with purity,
wherein are sound decrees of high value.
Nor did the people given revelations in the past break up their unity until after such clear evidence of the truth had been given to them.
Yet they were ordered to do nothing more than to serve God, to worship Him alone with sincere dedication and purity of faith, to attend to their prayers and to pay their zakÄt. That is surely the right religion, pure and straight.
The unbelievers among the people of the earlier revelations and the idolaters will be in the fire of hell, where they will abide. They are the worst of all creatures.
But those who believe and do righteous deeds are the best of all creatures.
Their reward [awaits them] with their Lord: the gardens of Eden through which running waters flow, in which they will abide forever. God is well pleased with them and they with Him. This is for him who is God-fearing.
