وَلَقَدْ اٰتَيْنَا مُوْسَى الْكِتٰبَ وَقَفَّيْنَا مِنْۢ بَعْدِهٖ بِالرُّسُلِ ۡ وَاٰتَيْنَا عِيْسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ الْبَيِّنٰتِ وَاَيَّدْنٰهُ بِرُوْحِ الْقُدُسِ ۭ اَفَكُلَّمَا جَاۗءَكُمْ رَسُوْلٌۢ بِمَا لَا تَهْوٰٓى اَنْفُسُكُمُ اسْتَكْبَرْتُمْ ۚفَفَرِيْقًا كَذَّبْتُمْ ۡوَفَرِيْقًا تَقْتُلُوْنَ

And We did certainly give Moses the Scripture [i.e., the Torah] and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit [i.e., the angel Gabriel].

And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed.

They will have pure spouses, and they will be there forever.

وَبَشِّرِ الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ اَنَّ لَھُمْ جَنّٰتٍ تَجْرِىْ مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الْاَنْهٰرُ ۭ كُلَّمَا رُزِقُوْا مِنْهَا مِنْ ثَمَـــرَةٍ رِّزْقًا ۙ قَالُوْا ھٰذَا الَّذِىْ رُزِقْنَا مِنْ قَبْلُ ۙ وَاُتُوْا بِهٖ مُتَشَابِهًا ۭ وَلَھُمْ فِيْهَآ اَزْوَاجٌ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ ڎ وَّھُمْ فِيْهَا خٰلِدُوْنَ

اَوْ كَصَيِّبٍ مِّنَ السَّمَاۗءِ فِيْهِ ظُلُمٰتٌ وَّرَعْدٌ وَّبَرْقٌ ۚ يَجْعَلُوْنَ اَصَابِعَھُمْ فِىْٓ اٰذَانِهِمْ مِّنَ الصَّوَاعِقِ حَذَرَ الْمَوْتِ ۭ وَاللّٰهُ مُحِيْطٌۢ بِالْكٰفِرِيْنَ

يَكَادُ الْبَرْقُ يَخْطَفُ اَبْصَارَھُمْ ۭ كُلَّمَآ اَضَاۗءَ لَھُمْ مَّشَوْا فِيْهِ ڎ وَاِذَآ اَظْلَمَ عَلَيْهِمْ قَامُوْا ۭ وَلَوْ شَاۗءَ اللّٰهُ لَذَھَبَ بِسَمْعِهِمْ وَاَبْصَارِهِمْ ۭ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ عَلٰي كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ
