Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

2 an apostle from Allah
reciting impeccable scriptures,
3 wherein are upright writings.
4 And those who were given the Book did not divide,
except after the proof had come to them.
5 Yet they were not commanded except to worship Allah,
dedicating their faith to Him
as men of pure faith,
and to maintain the prayer and pay the zakāt.
That is the upright religion.
6 Indeed the faithless
from among the People of the Book
and the polytheists
will be in the fire of hell,
to remain in it [forever].
It is they who are the worst of creatures.
7 Indeed those who have faith and do righteous deeds
— it is they who are the best of creatures.
8 Their reward, near their Lord,
is the Gardens of Eden,
with streams running in them,
to remain in them forever.
Allah is pleased with them,
and they are pleased with Him.
That is for those who fear their Lord.
