002 - Soorah al-Baqarah - (The Cow) - [Makkee]
[002.113] The Jews said that the Christians follow nothing (i.e. are not on the right religion); and the Christians said that the Jews follow nothing (i.e. are not on the right religion); though they both recite the Scripture. Like to their word, said (the pagans) who know not. Allâh will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection about that wherein they have been differing.
[002.114] And who are more unjust than those who forbid that Allâh's Name be glorified and mentioned much (i.e. prayers and invocations) in Allâh's mosques and strive for their ruin? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them (Allâh's mosques) except in fear. For them there is disgrace in this world, and they will have a great torment in the Hereafter.
[002.115] And to Allâh belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn (yourselves or your faces) there is the Face of Allâh (and He is High above, over His Throne). Surely, Allâh is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing.
[002.116] And they (Jews, Christians and pagans) say: Allâh has begotten a son (children or offspring). Glorified is He (Exalted is He above all that they associate with Him). Nay, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth, and all surrender with obedience (in worship) to Him.
[002.117] The Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it : "Be!" – and it is.
[002.118] And those who have no knowledge say: "Why does not Allâh speak to us (face to face) or why does not a sign come to us?" So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty.
[002.119] Verily, We have sent you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) with the truth (Islâm), a bringer of glad tidings (for those who believe in what you brought, that they will enter Paradise) and a warner (for those who disbelieve in what you brought, that they will enter the Hell-fire). And you will not be asked about the dwellers of the blazing Fire.
(V.2:116) "They (Jews, Christians and pagans) say: Allâh has begotten a son (children, offspring). Glorified is He...Nay...."
Narrated Ibn 'Abbâs [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "Allâh said, 'The son of Adam tells lies against Me though he has no right to do so, and he abuses Me though he has no right to do so. As for his telling lies against Me, he claims that I cannot re-create him as I created him before; and as for his abusing Me: it is his statement that I have a son (or offspring). No! Glorified I am! I am far from taking a wife or a son (or offspring).' " [Sahih Al-Bukhâri, 6/4482 (O.P.9)]
