[004:122] But those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh – Islāmic Monotheism) and do deeds of righteousness, We shall admit them to the Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e. in Paradise) to dwell therein forever. Allāh's Promise is the Truth; and whose words can be truer than those of Allāh? (Of course, none.)


[004:123] It will not be in accordance with your desires (Muslims), nor those of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), whosoever works evil, will have the recompense thereof, and he will not find any protector or helper besides Allāh.


[004:124] And whoever does righteous good deeds, male or female, and is a (true) believer [in the Oneness of Allāh (Muslim)], such will enter Paradise and not the least injustice, even to the size of a Naqīra (speck on the back of a date stone), will be done to them.


[004:125] And who can be better in religion than one who submits his face (himself) to Allāh (i.e. follows Allāh's religion of Islāmic Monotheism); and he is a Muhsin (a good-doer. See V.2:112). And follows the religion of Ibrāhīm (Abraham) Hanīf (Islāmic Monotheism – to worship none but Allāh Alone). And Allāh did take Ibrāhīm (Abraham) as a Khalīl (an intimate friend)!


[004:126] And to Allāh belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allāh is Ever Encompassing all things.


[004:127] They ask your legal instruction concerning women, say: Allāh instructs you about them, and about what is recited to you in the Book concerning the orphan girls whom you give not the prescribed portions (as regards Mahr and inheritance) and yet whom you desire to marry, and (concerning) the children who are weak and oppressed, and that you stand firm for justice to orphans. And whatever good you do, Allāh is Ever All-Knower of it.
