Sūrah Ā-i ‘Imrān (64-80)

This is an annotated translation of twenty verses of Sūrah A%l-i ‘Imrān by Jāved Ahmad Ghāmidī. These verses begin with what is reflection of God’s advice to believers: “call to the way of your lord with wisdom and sincere exhortations, and debate with them in manners that are most appropriate,” (16:125). Thereafter, the Almighty deplores the disbelievers’ deceptive – indeed abominable – scheme aimed at undermining the veracity of Islam. This is followed by a plain contrast between two types of people, among “People of the Book”, in terms of their ethical standing. Finally, the Almighty states that His prophets are of veritably strong character; they do not tamper with God’s trust – His revelations.
