101. Command for People of Earlier Books

Surah Nisa No. 4 Ayat No. 47
 

 

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ آَمِنُوا بِمَا نَزَّلْنَا مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا مَعَكُمْ مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ نَطْمِسَ وُجُوهًا فَنَرُدَّهَا عَلَى أَدْبَارِهَا أَوْ نَلْعَنَهُمْ كَمَا لَعَنَّا أَصْحَابَ السَّبْتِ وَكَانَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ مَفْعُولًا ﴿4:47﴾ 
 
Translation :

 

“ O you who were given the Books ! Do believe in the Book which We have now revealed, which confirms the revelation which you already possess.  Do this,  before We tarnish your faces, and turn them on your backs, or lay a curse upon them as We cursed the Sabbath-men.  Bear in mind that Allah's command is ever fulfilled “.
