150. Qul halumma shuhadaakumu allatheena yashhadoona anna Allaha harrama hatha fa-

in shahidoo fala tashhad maAAahum wala tattabiAA ahwaa allatheena kaththaboo bi-

ayatina wa


llatheena la yu/minoona bi


l-akhirati wahum birabbihim yaAAdiloon


150. Say: "Bring forward your witnesses to prove that God did forbid so and so." If they

bring such witnesses, be not thou amongst them: Nor follow thou the vain desires of such

as treat our signs as falsehoods, and such as believe not in the Herea fter: for they hold

others as equal with their Guardian-Lord.

Section 19 (151-154)

151. Qul taAAalaw atlu ma harrama rabbukum AAalaykum alla tushrikoo bihi shay-an



lwalidayni ihsanan wala taqtuloo awladakum min imlaqin nahnu narzuqukum wa-

iyyahum wala taqraboo alfawahisha ma


ahara minha wama batana wala taqtuloo



nnafsa allatee harrama Allahu illa bi


lhaqqi thalikum wassakum bihi laAAallakum



151. Say: "Come, I will rehearse what God hath (really) prohibited you from": Join not

anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of

want;- We provide sustenance for you and for them;- come not nigh to sha meful deeds.

Whether open or secret; take not life, which God hath made sacred, except by way of

justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.
