5.41 . O Messenger! Let not them grieve thee who vie one with another in the race to disbelief , of such as say with their mouths : "We believe , " but their hearts believe not , and of the Jews : listeners for the sake of falsehood , listeners on behalf of other folk who come not unto thee , changing words from their context and saying : If this be given unto you , receive it but if this be not given unto you , then beware! He whom Allah doometh unto sin , thou ( by thine efforts ) wilt avail him naught against Allah . Those are they for whom the will of Allah is that He cleanse not their hearts . Theirs in the world will be ignominy , and in the Hereafter an awful doom ;
5.42 . Listeners for the sake of falsehood! Greedy for illicit gain! If then they have recourse unto thee ( Muhammad ) judge between them or disclaim jurisdiction . If thou disclaimest jurisdiction , then they cannot harm thee at all . But if thou judgest , judge between them with equity . Lo! Allah loveth the equitable .
5.43 . How come they unto thee for judgment when they have the Torah , wherein Allah hath delivered judgment ( for them ) ? Yet even after that they turn away . Such ( folk ) are not believers .
5.44 . Lo! We did reveal the Torah , wherein is guidance and a light , by which the Prophets who surrendered ( unto Allah ) judged the Jews , and the rabbis and the priests ( judged ) by such of Allah ' s Scripture as they were bidden to observe , and thereunto were they witnesses . So fear not mankind , but fear Me . And barter not My revelations for a little gain . Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed : such are disbelievers .
5.45 . And We prescribed for them therein : The life for the life , and the eye for the eye , and the nose for the nose , and the ear for the ear , and the tooth for the tooth , and for wounds retaliation . But whoso forgoeth it ( in the way of charity ) it shall be expiation for him . Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed : such are wrong doers .
5.46 . And We caused Jesus , son of Mary , to follow in their footsteps , confirming that which was ( revealed ) before him , and We bestowed on him the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light , confirming that which was ( revealed ) before it in the Torah a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off ( evil ) .
5.47 . Let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah hath revealed therein . Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed ; such are evil livers .
5.48 . And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth , confirming whatever Scripture was before it , and a watcher over it . So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed , and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee . For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced out way . Had Allah willed He could have made you one community . But that He may try you by that which He hath given you ( He hath made you as ye are ) . So vie one with another in good works . Unto Allah ye will all return , and He will then inform you of that wherein ye differ .
5.49 . So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed , and follow not their desires , but beware of them lest they seduce thee from some part of that which Allah hath revealed unto thee . And if they turn away , then know that Allah ' s will is to smite them for some sin of theirs . Lo! many of mankind are evil livers .
5.50 . Is it a judgment of the time of ( pagan ) ignorance that they are seeking? Who is better than Allah for judgment to a people who have certainty ( in their belief ) ?
5.51 . O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends . They are friends one to another . He among you who taketh them for friends is ( one ) of them . Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk .
5.52 . And thou seest those in whose heart is a disease race toward them , saying : We fear lest a change of fortune befall us . And it may happen that Allah will vouchsafe ( unto thee ) the victory , or a commandment from His presence . Then will they repent of their secret thoughts .
5.53 . Then will the believers say ( unto the people of the Scripture ) : Are these they who swore by Allah their most binding oaths that they were surely with you? Their works have failed , and they have become the losers .
5.54 . O ye who believe! Whoso of you becometh a renegade from his religion , ( know that in his stead ) Allah will bring a people whom He loveth and who love Him , humble toward believers , stern toward disbelievers , striving in the way of Allah and fearing not the blame of any blamer . Such is the grace of Allah which He giveth unto whom He will . Allah is All Embracing , All Knowing .
5.55 . Your friend can be only Allah ; and His messenger and those who believe , who establish worship and pay the poor due , and bow down ( in prayer ) .
5.56 . And whoso taketh Allah and His messenger and those who believe for friend ( will know that ) , lo! the party of Allah , they are the victorious .
5.57 . O ye who believe! Choose not for friends such of those who received the Scripture before you , and of the disbelievers , as make a jest and sport of your religion . But keep your duty to Allah if ye are true believers .
5.58 . And when ye call to prayer they take it for a jest and sport . That is because they are a folk who understand not .
5.59 . Say : O , People of the Scripture! Do ye blame us for aught else than that we believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed aforetime , and because most of you are evil livers?
5.60 . Shall I tell thee of a worse ( case ) than theirs for retribution with Allah? Worse ( is the case of him ) whom Allah hath cursed , him on whom His wrath hath fallen! Worse is he of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine , and who serveth idols . Such are in worse plight and further astray from the plain road .
