Juz 7
Those of the Children of Israel who were bent on denying the truth were cursed by David and Jesus, the son of Mary. That was because they disobeyed and were given to transgression; (78) They would not prevent one another from doing whatever hateful things they did: vile indeed was what they were wont to do! (79) You can see among them many allying themselves with the infidels. Vile it was what they sent ahead of them, so that God's indignation came upon them; and torment will they suffer an eternity. (80) For, if they [truly] believed in God and their Prophet and all that was bestowed upon him from on high, they would not take those [deniers of the truth] for their allies: but most of them are iniquitous. (81) ۞ Certainly you will find the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews and those who are polytheists, and you will certainly find the nearest in friendship to those who believe (to be) those who say: We are Christians; this is because there are priests and monks among them and because they do not behave proudly. (82) And when they listen to what has been sent down to the Noble Messenger (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), you observe their eyes overflowing with tears because they have recognised the truth; they say, “Our Lord, we have accepted faith therefore record us among the witnesses of the truth.” (83) Why should we not believe in God and the Truth that has come to us and hope that the Lord will admit us into the company of the righteous people?" (84) And for this their belief God will reward them with gardens through which running waters flow, therein to abide: for such is the requital of the doers of good; (85) And those who disbelieved and belied Our signs, they shall be the fellows of the Flaming Fire.
