They say: “Our Lord! We have indeed believed (became âmenû), so forgive us (change our sins into merits) and save us from the torment of the Fire”.
(They are) those who are patient and those who are true (to their vow) and Kânitîn (standing up for a long time before Allah in prayer with a profound respect) and those who spend (for Allah) and those who ask forgiveness at the time before dawn.
Allah bears witness that there is no god but He, and (so do) the angels and those possessed of knowledge kept up with justice (bear witness): there is no god except He. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
Truly, the Religion with Allah is Islam (religion of submission). Those to whom the Book had been given, differed, out of mutual envy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever hinders (disbelieves) the Verses of Allah, then surely Allah is Swift in reckoning.
So if they dispute with you, say: “I have submitted my physical body to Allah, and so did every one who follows (taken an allegiance to) me”; and say to those who have been given the Book and to those who are illiterates: “Did you also submit your physical bodies (to Allah)”? So if they submit, then indeed they have attained Guidance (Hidayet); and if they turn away, then upon you is only to convey the Message; and Allah is All-Seeing of His servants.
Then announce to those who disbelieve in the Verses of Allah and kill the Prophets without right and kill those among men who enjoin justice, a painful torment.
Those are they whose works have become null in this world and in the Hereafter; and for them there are no helpers.
