Day Twenty Fourth (A Journey with Quran)

Today’s Ayats from Surah Al Imran are from 61- 70.

61If anyone disputes in this matter with thee now after (full) knowledge hath come to thee say: “Come! let us gather together our sons and your sons our women and your women ourselves and yourselves: then let us earnestly pray and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!”

62This is the true account: there is no god except Allah; and Allah He is indeed the Exalted in Power the Wise.

63But if they turn back Allah hath full knowledge of those who do mischief.

64Say: “O people of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not from among ourselves Lords and patrons other than Allah.” If then they turn back say: “Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s will).”

65Ye people of the Book! why dispute ye about Abraham when the Law and the Gospel were not revealed till after him? Have ye no understanding?

66Ah! ye are those who fell to disputing (even) in matters of which ye had some knowledge! but why dispute ye in matters of which ye have no knowledge? It is Allah Who knows and ye who know not!

67Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian but he was true in faith and bowed his will to Allah’s (which is Islam) and he joined not gods with Allah.

68Without doubt among men the nearest of kin to Abraham are those who follow him, as are also this Prophet, and those who believe; and Allah is the Protector of those who have faith.

69It is the wish of a section of the People of the Book to lead you astray. But they shall lead astray (not you) but themselves and they do not perceive!

70Ye People of the Book! Why reject ye the Signs of Allah of which ye are (yourselves) witnesses?

Translation: Abdullah Yusuf
