And the Jews will not be pleased with you, nor the Christians until you follow (depend on) their religion. Say: “Verily, reaching Allah (while alive) [Allah to deliver to Himself], that is the (true) Guidance”. And if you follow (depend on) their (vain) desires after the knowledge that has come to you, for you there shall be from Allah no protecting friend (Wali) nor any helper.
Those to whom We gave the Book (the Prophets and the Messengers) read (and explain) it as it ought to be read (explained). They are the ones who believe in it. And whoso disbelieve in it (by denying it), those are they who are the losers.
O Children of Israel! Remember My Blessing which I bestowed upon you and that I made you superior upon the Worlds (Âlamîn, mankind and jinn).
And guard yourselves against a Day when no soul will avail another, nor shall compensation be accepted from him, nor shall intercession be of use to him, nor shall they be helped.
And (remember) when his Lord tried Abraham with certain words, he fulfilled them. He said: “Verily, I am going to make you an Imâm (a Leader) for mankind”. (Abraham) said: “And of my offspring”? (Allah) said: “My covenant (My Mercy of religious leadership) does not extend to the wrongdoers (of your offspring)”.
And (remember) We made the House (the Holy Ka’ba at Makka) a place of resort (where one may gain rewards) and a place of safety. Appoint for yourselves a place of prayer on the standing-place (Maqâm) of Abraham (Ibrahîm). And We enjoined Abraham and Ishmael (Ismail) that they should purify My House for those who circumambulate (it) and stay (and contemplate in it) and bow and prostrate themselves (there, in prayer).
And (remember) when Abraham said: “My Lord, make this city a place of security and provide its people with fruits, as they believe in Allah and the Last Day”, He said: “As for him who disbelieves, I will grant him enjoyment for a short while, then I will compel him to the torment of the Fire; and it is an evil destination”.
