Believers of the last Scripture

Chapter Hajj” – (The Pilgrimage) – 22

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


وَكَذَٰلِكَ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ ءَايَٰتٍۭ بَيِّنَٰتٍ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَهْدِى مَن يُرِيدُ 16

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَٱلَّذِينَ هَادُوا۟ وَٱلصَّٰبِـِٔينَ وَٱلنَّصَٰرَىٰ وَٱلْمَجُوسَ وَٱلَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوٓا۟ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَفْصِلُ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ شَهِيدٌ 17


16.  And thus We reveal it as Plain Revelations, and verily Allah guideth whom He will.


17.  Lo! Those who believe (this Revelation), and those who are Jews, and the Sabaeans and the Christians and the Magians and the idolaters – lo! Allah will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection. Lo! Allah is Witness over all things.

16.  Wa  kazaalika  ‘anzalNaahu  ‘Aayaatim-Bayyinaatinw-wa  ‘annAllaaha  yahdii  many-yuriid.


17.  ‘Innal-laziina  ‘aamanuu  wallaziina  haaduu  was-Saabi-‘iina  wan-Nasaaraa  wal-Majuusa  wallaziina  ‘ashrakuuu  ‘innAllaaha  yafsilu  baynahum  Yawmal-Qiyaamah.  ‘InnAllaaha  ‘alaa  kulli  shay-‘in  Shahiid.




Majuusun – (worshipers of fire, a sect of the Magi), these are the people who believe in two Gods – Yazdan (the God who produces goodness), and Ahrman (the God who creates evil).


It is commanded: We have sent down the Holy Qur’an in the same form as you have been looking it. All useful matters for the mankind have been described in it very clearly, but in spite of it; only those people understand it to whom Allaah Almighty has bestowed sense; and who use their sense properly. If even then the people will not understand it and make separate groups in the Religion, then Allaah Almighty will question them on the Day of Resurrection. There are the Believers, the Jews, the Sabaeans, the Christians, the Magians and the idolaters in the world. Every one of them supports own Religion. After death it will be known that who was right and who was wrong. Faiths and deeds of every individual will be produced before all of them, so that they may know about that which they did during their worldly life, and where will they abide due to reprisal of their deeds.
