Islam / The Koran /
Sura 98: Manifest Sign
Of Mecca


In the name of the merciful and compassionate God.

1 Those of the people of the Book and the idolaters who misbelieve did not fall off until there came to them the manifest sign, 2 an apostle from God reading pure pages wherein are right scriptures:

3 Nor did those who were given the Book divide into sects until after there came to them the manifest sign.

4 But they were not bidden aught but to worship God, being sincere in religion unto Him as ‘Hanifs, and to be steadfast in prayer, and to give alms: for that is the standard religion.

5 Verily, those who disbelieve amongst the people of the Book and the idolaters shall be in the fire of hell, to dwell therein for aye; they are wretched creatures!

6 Verily, those who believe and act aright, they are the best of creatures; 7 their reward with their Lord is gardens of Eden, beneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein for aye; 8 God shall be well pleased with them, and they with Him! that is for him who fears his Lord!
