Hizb 13
Juz 7
Those of the Children of Israel who took to unbelief have been cursed by the tongue of David and Jesus, son of Mary, for they rebelled and exceeded the bounds of right. (78) They did not prevent each other from committing sins nor would they themselves stay away from them. Evil was what they had done! (79) You see many of them taking the disbelievers as their Auliya' (protectors and helpers). Evil indeed is that which their ownselves have sent forward before them, for that (reason) Allah's Wrath fell upon them and in torment they will abide. (80) Had they believed in Allah and this Prophet (Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) and what is sent down upon him, they would not befriend the disbelievers, but most of them are disobedient. (81) ۞ You will certainly find the Jews and the polytheists as the greatest enemies of the Muslims; and you will find the closest in friendship to the Muslims those who said, “We are Christians”; that is because scholars and monks are among them, and they are not proud. (82) For when they listen to what has been revealed to this Apostle, you can see their eyes brim over with tears at the truth which they recognise, and say: "O Lord, we believe; put us down among those who bear witness (to the truth). (83) Why should we not believe in God and the truth that has come to us, and be eager that our Lord should admit us with the righteous people?' (84) Allah hath rewarded them for that their saying - Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. That is the reward of the good. (85) But those who disbelieved and denied Our signs - they are the companions of Hellfire. (86)
