[005:018] And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We are the children of Allāh and His loved ones." Say: "Why then does He punish you for your sins?" Nay, you are but human beings of those He has created, He forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allāh belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them; and to Him is the return (of all).


[005:019] O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) making (things) clear to you, after a break in (the series of) Messengers, lest you say: "There came to us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner." But now has come to you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner. And Allāh is Able to do all things.


[005:020] And (remember) when Mūsā (Moses) said to his people: "O my people! Remember the Favour of Allāh to you: when He made Prophets among you, made you kings and gave you what He had not given to any other among the 'Ālamīn (mankind and jinn of your time-period, in the past)."


[005:021] "O my people! Enter the holy land (Palestine) which Allāh has assigned to you and turn not back (in flight); for then you will be returned as losers."


[005:022] They said: "O Mūsā (Moses)! In it (this holy land) are a people of great strength, and we shall never enter it till they leave it; when they leave, then we will enter."


[005:023] Two men of those who feared (Allāh and) on whom Allāh had bestowed His Grace (they were Yūsha' and Kālab) said: "Assault them through the gate; for when you are in, victory will be yours; and put your trust in Allāh if you are believers indeed."
