[043:061] And he ['Īsā (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)] shall be a known sign for (the coming of) the Hour (Day of Resurrection) [i.e. 'Īsā's (Jesus) descent on the earth]. Therefore have no doubt concerning it (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). And follow Me (Allāh) (i.e. be obedient to Allāh and do what He orders you to do, O mankind)! This is the Straight Path (of Islāmic Monotheism, leading to Allāh and to His Paradise).


[043:062] And let not Shaitān (Satan) hinder you (from the right religion, i.e. Islāmic Monotheism). Verily, he (Satan) to you is a plain enemy.


[043:063] And when 'Īsā (Jesus) came with (Our) clear Proofs, he said: "I have come to you with Al-Hikmah (Prophethood), and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) in which you differ. Therefore fear Allāh and obey me.


[043:064] "Verily, Allāh! He is my Lord (God) and your Lord (God). So worship Him (Alone). This is the (only) Straight Path (i.e. Allāh's religion of true Islāmic Monotheism)."


[043:065] But the sects from among themselves differed. So woe to those who do wrong [by ascribing things to 'Īsā (Jesus) that are not true] from the torment of a painful Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)!


[043:066] Do they only wait for the Hour that it shall come upon them suddenly while they perceive not?


[043:067] Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except Al-Muttaqūn (the pious. See V.2:2).


[043:068] (It will be said to the true believers of Islāmic Monotheism): My worshippers! No fear shall be on you this Day, nor shall you grieve,


[043:069] (You) who believed in Our Ayāt (proofs, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and were Muslims (i.e. who submit totally to Allāh's Will, and believe in the Oneness of Allāh – Islāmic Monotheism).


[043:070] Enter Paradise, you and your wives, in happiness.


[043:071] Trays of gold and cups will be passed round them; (there will be) therein all that inner selves could desire, and all that eyes could delight in and you will abide therein forever.


[043:072] This is Paradise which you have been made to inherit because of your deeds which you used to do (in the life of the world).


[043:073] Therein for you will be fruits in plenty, of which you will eat (as you desire).
