And when it is said to them: “Follow what Allah has sent down”, they said: “Nay! We follow what (the way) we found our fathers upon”. Even if their fathers were not mindful nor did they attain Guidance (Hidayet)?
And the parable of those who disbelieve is as the parable of one who calls out to that which hears no more then a call and a cry; (they are) deaf, dumb and blind. So they can not be mindful (understand).
O you who believe (who are âmenû)! Eat of the lawful and clean things that We have provided you with, and be grateful to Allah, if it is indeed He Whom you serve (to Whom you became servants).
He has only forbidden you what dies of itself (carrion) and blood and the flesh of swine, and that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allah. But if one is forced by necessity without willful disobedience nor transgressing due limits, then there is no sin on them. Truly, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Verily, those who conceal certain things from what Allah has sent down of the Book, and purchase a small gain with it, they eat into their bellies nothing but fire. Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify (exonerate) them. And for them there will be a painful torment.
Those are they who purchase Misguidance (Dalâlet) at the price of Guidance, and torment at the price of Forgiveness. Then what is it that makes them so patient against the Fire!
This (torment) is because Allah has sent down the Book with the truth. And those who seek differences in the Book are in open schism.
