O believers! Whoever among you abandons their faith, Allah will replace them with others who love Him and are loved by Him. They will be humble with the believers but firm towards the disbelievers, struggling in the Way of Allah; fearing no blame from anyone. This is the favour of Allah. He grants it to whoever He wills. And Allah is All-Bountiful, All-Knowing.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٥٥
Your only guardians are Allah, His Messenger, and fellow believers—who establish prayer and pay alms-tax with humility.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٥٦
Whoever allies themselves with Allah, His Messenger, and fellow believers, then it is certainly Allah’s party that will prevail.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٥٧
O believers! Do not seek the guardianship of those given the Scripture before you and the disbelievers who have made your faith a mockery and amusement. And be mindful of Allah if you are ˹truly˺ believers.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٥٨
When you call to prayer, they mock it in amusement. This is because they are a people without understanding.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٥٩
Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “O People of the Book! Do you resent us only because we believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what was revealed before—while most of you are rebellious?”

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٦٠
Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Shall I inform you of those who deserve a worse punishment from Allah ˹than the rebellious˺? It is those who earned Allah’s condemnation and displeasure—some being reduced to apes and pigs1 and worshippers of false gods. These are far worse in rank and farther astray from the Right Way.”

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٦١
When they come to you ˹believers˺ they say, “We believe.” But they are committed to disbelief when they enter and when they leave. And Allah knows what they hide.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٦٢
You see many of them racing towards sin, transgression, and consumption of forbidden gain. Evil indeed are their actions!

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

٦٣
Why do their rabbis and scholars not forbid them from saying what is sinful and consuming what is unlawful? Evil indeed is their inaction!

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
