[005:0010] And those who disbelieve and deny Our Ay‚t (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) are those who will be the dwellers of the Hell-fire.


[005:011] O you who believe! Remember the Favour of All‚h to you when some people desired (made a plan) to stretch out their hands against you, but (All‚h) held back their hands from you. So fear All‚h. And in All‚h let the believers put their trust.


[005:012] Indeed, All‚h took the covenant from the Children of Israel (Jews), and We appointed twelve leaders among them. And All‚h said: "I am with you if you perform As-Sal‚t (the prayers) and give Zak‚t (obligatory charity) and believe in My Messengers; honour and assist them, and lend a good loan to All‚h, verily, I will expiate your sins and admit you to Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise). But if any of you after this, disbelieved, he has indeed gone astray from the Straight Path."


[005:013] So, because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them and made their hearts grow hard. They change the words from their (right) places and have abandoned a good part of the Message that was sent to them. And you will not cease to discover deceit in them, except a few of them. But forgive them and overlook (their misdeeds). Verily, All‚h loves Al-MuhsinŻn (good-doers. See V.2:112).





a) i.e. the Jews were ordered in the Taur‚t (Torah) to follow Prophet Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] when he would come as a Messenger of All‚h to all mankind. [See (V.7:157) and its footnote]

b) See the footnote of (V.41:46).
