006 - Soorah al-An'aam - (The Cattle) - [Makkee]
[006:082] It is those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh and worship none but Him Alone) and confuse not their Belief with Zulm (wrong, i.e. by worshipping others besides Allâh), for them (only) there is security and they are the guided.
[006:083] And that was Our Proof which We gave Ibrâhîm (Abraham) against his people. We raise whom We will in degrees. Certainly your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.
[006:084] And We bestowed upon him Ishâq (Isaac) and Ya'qûb (Jacob), each of them We guided, and before him, We guided Nûh (Noah), and among his progeny Dâwûd (David), Sulaimân (Solomon), Ayyub (Job), Yûsuf (Joseph), Mûsâ (Moses), and Hârûn (Aaron). Thus do We reward Al-Muhsinûn (the good-doers. See the footnote of V.9:120).
[006:085] And Zakariyyâ (Zechariah), and Yahyâ (John) and 'Îsâ (Jesus) and Ilyâs (Elias), each one of them was of the righteous.
[006:086] And Ismâ'îl (Ishmael) and Al-Yasaa' (Elisha), and Yûnus (Jonah) and Lût (Lot), and each one of them We preferred to the 'Âlamîn [mankind and jinn (of their times)].
[006:087] And also some of their fathers and their progeny and their brethren, We chose them, and We guided them to a Straight Path.
[006:088] This is the Guidance of Allâh with which He guides whomsoever He wills of His slaves. But if they had joined in worship others with Allâh, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them.
[006:089] They are those whom We gave the Book, Al-Hukm (understanding of the religious laws), and Prophethood. But if these disbelieve therein (the Book, Al-Hukm and Prophethood), then, indeed We have entrusted it to a people (such as the Companions of Prophet Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) who are not disbelievers therein.
[006:090] They are those whom Allâh had guided. So follow their guidance. Say: "No reward I ask of you for this (the Qur'ân). It is only a reminder for the 'Âlamîn (mankind and jinn)."
