SURAH AL-BAYYINAH

(THE CLEAR EVIDENCE)

MEDINAN PERIOD

Division: 604

1-3Those who disbelieved; consciously denied the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb from among the People of the Book and from among those who associate others with Allah were not released, forsaken until the clear evidence; that contained decrees which are beneficial to the humanity/uncorrupted, that recited the scriptures which are beneficial to humanity, a messenger sent by Allah came to them.

4And those who were given the Book became divided only after the clear proof had come to them.

5Yet they were only commanded, to worship Allah as people purifying the religion only for Allah, to establish Salah [establish and maintain the institutions that support financially and spiritually; enlighten the community], to give zaqah/tax. And this is the correct/true/incorruptible religion.

6Surely, those who disbelieved; consciously denied the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb from among the People of the Book and from among those who associate others with Allah will be in the fire of Jahannah [Hell], abiding therein eternally. They are the ones who are the worst of all creatures.

7Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds, they are the best of all creatures. 8Their reward with their Rabb will be the gardens of Eden, underneath of which rivers flow, wherein they will abide eternally. Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. And this reward will be for those who fear their Rabb in awe with knowledge, love, respect.
