[006:147] If they (Jews) deny you (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) say: "Your Lord is the Owner of Vast Mercy, and never will His Wrath be turned back from the people who are MujrimŻn (criminals, polytheists or sinners)."


[006:148] Those who took partners (in worship) with All‚h will say: "If All‚h had willed, we would not have taken partners (in worship) with Him, nor would our fathers, and we would not have forbidden anything (against His Will)." Likewise denied those who were before them, (they argued falsely with All‚h's Messengers), till they tasted Our Wrath. Say: "Have you any knowledge (proof) that you can produce before us? Verily, you follow nothing but conjecture and you do nothing but lie."


[006:149] Say: "With All‚h is the perfect proof and argument, (i.e. the Oneness of All‚h, the sending of His Messengers and His Holy Books, to mankind); had He so willed, He would indeed have guided you all."


[006:150] Say: "Bring forward your witnesses, who can testify that All‚h has forbidden this." Then if they testify, testify not you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) with them. And you should not follow the vain desires of such as treat Our Ay‚t (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) as falsehoods, and such as believe not in the Hereafter, and they hold others as equal (in worship) with their Lord.


[006:151] Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; kill not your children because of poverty" Ė We provide sustenance for you and for them Ė "Come not near to Al-Faw‚hish (great sins and illegal sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly; and kill not anyone whom All‚h has forbidden, except for a just cause (according to Isl‚mic law). This He has commanded you that you may understand."
