83. And remember We took a covenant from the Children of Israel (to this effect):
Worship none but Allah. treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and
those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; and practise regular charity.
Then did ye turn back, except a few among you, and ye backslide (even now).
84. Wa-ith akhathna meethaqakum la tasfikoona dimaakum wala tukhrijoona anfusakum
min diyarikum thumma aqrartum waantum tashhadoon
84. And remember We took your covenant (to this effect): Shed no blood amongst you,
nor turn out your own people from your homes: and this ye solemnly ratified, and to this
ye can bear witness.www.islamicbulletin.com
