[005:114] 's (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: "O Allh, our Lord! Send us from the heaven a table spread (with food) that there may be for us for the first and the last of us a festival and a sign from You; and provide us with sustenance, for You are the Best of sustainers."


[005:115] Allh said: "I am going to send it down to you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, then I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted on anyone among (all) the 'lamn (mankind and jinn)."


[005:116] And (remember) when Allh will say (on the Day of Resurrection): "O 's (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Did you say to men: 'Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allh?' " He will say: "Glorified are You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner self though I do not know what is in Yours; truly, You, only You, are the All-Knower of all that is hidden (and unseen).


[005:117] "Never did I say to them aught except what You (Allh) did command me to say: 'Worship Allh, my Lord and your Lord.' And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up, You were the Watcher over them; and You are a Witness to all things. (This is a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole world).


[005:118] "If You punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive them, verily, You, only You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise."


[005:119] Allh will say: "This is a Day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise) they shall abide therein forever. Allh is pleased with them and they with Him. That is the great success (Paradise).


[005:120] To Allh belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is therein, and He is Able to do all things.




(V.5:118) Narrated Ibn 'Abbs [radhi-yAllhu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "You will be gathered (on the Day of Resurrection) and some people will be driven (by the angels) to the left side (and taken to Hell) whereupon I will say as the pious slave ['Is (Jesus)] said: 'And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them ... the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.' " (V.5:117,118) [Sahih Al-Bukhri, 6/4626 (O.P.150)]
