Verse 98:1

لَمۡ يَكُنِ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا مِنۡ اَهۡلِ الۡكِتٰبِ وَالۡمُشۡرِكِيۡنَ مُنۡفَكِّيۡنَ حَتّٰى تَاۡتِيَهُمُ الۡبَيِّنَةُ ۙ‏

It is inconceivable that those who are denying the truth, whether they are among the People of the Scripture or the idolaters, could come out of error until the clear evidence reaches them, [The Qur'an liberates them from the shackles of their manmade dogmas and brings them from darkness to light. 7:157]

Verse 98:2

رَسُوۡلٌ مِّنَ اللّٰهِ يَتۡلُوۡا صُحُفًا مُّطَهَّرَةً ۙ‏

(The evidence that) a Messenger from God is conveying to them in purified Scrolls. [That are well-scored and well-written on parchment by honored scribes. 52:2- 3, 80:13-16]

Verse 98:3

فِيۡهَا كُتُبٌ قَيِّمَةٌ ؕ‏

Wherein are Authoritative scriptures.

Verse 98:4

وَمَا تَفَرَّقَ الَّذِيۡنَ اُوۡتُوا الۡكِتٰبَ اِلَّا مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِ مَا جَآءَتۡهُمُ الۡبَيِّنَةُ ؕ‏

The People of the Scripture had divided themselves even when the evidence of truth had already come to them.

Verse 98:5

وَمَاۤ اُمِرُوۡۤا اِلَّا لِيَعۡبُدُوا اللّٰهَ مُخۡلِصِيۡنَ لَـهُ الدِّيۡنَ  ۙ حُنَفَآءَ وَيُقِيۡمُوا الصَّلٰوةَ وَيُؤۡتُوا الزَّكٰوةَ​ وَذٰلِكَ دِيۡنُ الۡقَيِّمَةِ ؕ‏

And they were commanded no more than to serve God being sincere in Religion for Him, turning away from all that is false, establishing the Divine System and setting up the Economic Order of Zakaat. That is the Perfect System of Life. [Deen = Divinely Prescribed Way of Life. Religion does not convey the exact meaning]

Verse 98:6

اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا مِنۡ اَهۡلِ الۡكِتٰبِ وَ الۡمُشۡرِكِيۡنَ فِىۡ نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ خٰلِدِيۡنَ فِيۡهَا ​ؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمۡ شَرُّ الۡبَرِيَّةِ ؕ‏

Those who conceal the truth, be they among the People of the Scripture or the idol worshipers, will abide in Hellfire. They are schismatic among all created beings

Verse 98:7

اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِۙ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمۡ خَيۡرُ الۡبَرِيَّةِ ؕ‏

And those who have chosen to be graced with belief, and help others, they are the best of all created beings.

Verse 98:8

جَزَآؤُهُمۡ عِنۡدَ رَبِّهِمۡ جَنّٰتُ عَدۡنٍ تَجۡرِىۡ مِنۡ تَحۡتِهَا الۡاَنۡهٰرُ خٰلِدِيۡنَ فِيۡهَاۤ اَبَدًا ​ؕ رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَنۡهُمۡ وَرَضُوۡا عَنۡهُ ​ؕ ذٰلِكَ لِمَنۡ خَشِىَ رَبَّهٗ‏

Their reward is with their Lord, Gardens of Eden (of perpetual bliss) to abide therein forever; underneath which rivers flow. Well pleased is God with them and well-pleased are they with Him. All this awaits him who fears (violating the commands of) his Lord.
