Surah 98

THE CLEAR PROOF (Al-Beyyinah)

The worst of created beings
Absurdity Injustice Intolerance Cruelty Good Stuff 98:1-8

1 Those who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture and the idolaters could not have left off (erring) till the clear proof came unto them,

2 A messenger from Allah, reading purified pages

3 Containing correct scriptures.

The disbelievers won't believe until they receive the clear proof

from a messenger of Allah,

reading correct the scriptures.

4 Nor were the People of the Scripture divided until after the clear proof came unto them.

5 And they are ordered naught else than to serve Allah, keeping religion pure for Him, as men by nature upright, and to establish worship and to pay the poor-due. That is true religion.

And the people of the scripture weren't divided

until the clear proof came to them.

True religion is paying the poor due.

6 Lo! those who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture and the idolaters, will abide in fire of hell. They are the worst of created beings.

Disbelievers are the worst of created beings.

They will live in the fire of hell.

7 (And) lo! those who believe and do good works are the best of created beings.

8 Their reward is with their Lord: Gardens of Eden underneath which rivers flow, wherein they dwell for ever. Allah hath pleasure in them and they have pleasure in Him. This is (in store) for him who feareth his Lord.

Believers are the best of created beings.
