  4. 98:3 Wherein are laws (or decrees) right and straight.

  5. 98:4 Nor did the People of the Book make schisms, until after there came to them Clear Evidence.

  6. 98:5 And they have been commanded no more than this: To worship Allah, offering Him sincere devotion, being true (in faith); to establish regular prayer; and to practise regular charity; and that is the Religion Right and Straight.

  7. 98:6 Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.

  8. 98:7 Those who have faith and do righteous deeds,- they are the best of creatures.

  9. 98:8 Their reward is with Allah: Gardens of Eternity, beneath which rivers flow; they will dwell therein for ever; Allah well pleased with them, and they with Him: all this for such as fear their Lord and Cherisher.
