19. Jews & Christians, Torah & Gospel
The Jews and the Christians say, ‘We are the children of God and His beloved ones.’ Say, ‘Then why does He punish you for your sins? You are merely human beings, part of His creation: He forgives whoever He will and punishes whoever He will.
The Jews have said, ‘Allah is tight-fisted,’ but it is they who are tight-fisted, and they are rejected for what they have said. Truly, Allah’s hands are open wide: He gives as He pleases. What has been sent down to you from your Lord is sure to increase insolence and defiance in many of them. We have sown enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection. Whenever they kindle the fire of war, Allah will put it out. They try to spread corruption in the land, but Allah does not love those who corrupt.
If they had upheld the Torah and the Gospel and what was sent down to them from their Lord, they would have been given abundance from above and from below: some of them are on the right course, but many of them do evil.
