“If only the People of the Book had believed & been righteous, We should indeed have blotted out their iniquities & admitted them to gardens of bliss.
If only they had stood fast by the Law, the Gospel, & all the revelation that was sent to them from their Lord, they would have enjoyed happiness from every side. There is from among them a party on the right course: but many of them follow a course that is evil.
O Messenger! proclaim the (message) which hath been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou didst not, thou wouldst not have fulfilled & proclaimed His mission. And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief). For Allah guideth not those who reject Faith.
Say: “O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, & all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.” It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion & blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith.
Those who believe (in the Qur’an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), & the Sabians & the Christians,- any who believe in Allah & the Last Day, & work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” [Holy Quran 5:65-69]
