SAY [O Prophet]: "Whosoever is an enemy of Gabriel" - who, verily, by God's leave, has brought down upon thy heart this [divine writ] which confirms the truth of whatever there still remains [of earlier revelations,] and is a guidance and a glad tiding for the believers. 97 whoever is an enemy of God, His angels, or His messengers, or of Gabriel or Michael, will surely find that God too is the enemy of those who deny the truth." 98 We have sent down to you clear verses, none will disbelieve them except the evildoers. 99 Why, whensoever they have made a covenant, does a party of them reject it? Nay, but the most of them are unbelievers. 100 And when a messenger from Allah came to them confirming that which was with them, a party of those who had been given the Scripture threw the Scripture of Allah behind their backs as if they did not know [what it contained]. 101 And they follow that which the satans recited in the reign of Sulaiman; and Sulaiman blasphemed not, but the satans blasphemed; teaching people magic; and they follow that also which was sent down unto the two angels in Babil, Harut and Marut. Unto none the twain taught it until they had said: we are but a temptation, so blaspheme not. But they learned from the twain that wherewith they might separate man from his wife; and they could harm none thereby save by Allah's will. And they have learnt that which harmeth them, and profiteth them not; and assuredly they know that whosoever purchaseth it, his is no portion in the Hereafter; and surely vile is the price for which they have bartered themselves, if they but knew! 102 And had they but believed and been mindful of God, His reward would have been far better for them, if they had but known it. 103
