[005:051] O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliy' (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Auliy' of each other. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliy', then surely, he is one of them. Verily, Allh guides not those people who are the Zlimn (polytheists and wrong doers and unjust).


[005:052] And you see those in whose hearts there is a disease (of hypocrisy), they hurry to their friendship, saying: "We fear lest some misfortune of a disaster may befall us." Perhaps Allh may bring a victory or a decision according to His Will. Then they will become regretful for what they have been keeping as a secret in themselves.


[005:053] And those who believe will say: "Are these the men (hypocrites) who swore their strongest oaths by Allh that they were with you (Muslims)?" All that they did has been in vain (because of their hypocrisy), and they have become the losers.


[005:054] O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islm), Allh will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the way of Allh, and never fear the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allh which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allh is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower.


[005:055] Verily, your Wal (Protector or Helper) is none other than Allh, His Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam], and the believers, those who perform As-Salt (the prayers), and give Zakt (obligatory charity), and they are Rki'n (those who bow down or submit themselves with obedience to Allh in prayer).


[005:056] And whosoever takes Allh, His Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam], and those who have believed, as Protectors, then the party of Allh will be the victorious.


[005:057] O you who believe! Take not as Auliy' (protectors and helpers) those who take your religion as a mockery and fun from among those who received the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before you, and nor from among the disbelievers; and fear Allh if you indeed are true believers.
