5.1 . O ye who believe! Fulfil your undertakings . The beast of cattle is made lawful unto you ( for food ) except that which is announced unto you ( herein ) , game being unlawful when ye are on pilgrimage . Lo! Allah ordaineth that which pleaseth Him .
5.2 . O ye who believe! Profane not Allah ' s monuments nor the Sacred Month nor the offerings nor the garlands , nor those repairing to the Sacred House , seeking the grace and pleasure of Allah . But when ye have left the sacred territory , then go hunting ( if ye will ) . And let not your hatred of a folk who ( once ) stopped your going to the Inviolable Place of Worship seduce you to transgress ; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty . Help not one another unto sin and transgression , but keep your duty to Allah . Lo! Allah is severe in punishment .
5.3 . Forbidden unto you ( for food ) are carrion and blood and swine flesh , and that which hath been dedicated unto any other than Allah , and the strangled , and the dead through beating , and the dead through falling from a height , and that which hath been killed by ( the goring of ) horns , and the devoured of wild beasts , saving that which ye make lawful ( by the death stroke ) , and that which hath been immolated unto idols . And ( forbidden is it ) that ye swear by the divining arrows . This is an abomination . This day are those who disbelieve in despair of ( ever harming ) your religion ; so fear them not , fear Me! This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you , and have chosen for you as religion AL- ISLAM . Whoso is forced by hunger , not by will , to sin : ( for him ) lo! Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .
5.4 . They ask thee ( O Muhammad ) what is made lawful for them . Say : ( all ) good things are made lawful for you . And those beasts and birds of prey which ye have trained as hounds are trained , ye teach them that which Allah taught you ; so eat of that which they catch for you and mention Allah ' s name upon it , and observe your duty to Allah . Lo! Allah is swift to take account .
5.5 . This day are ( all ) good things made lawful for you . The food of those who have received the Scripture is lawful for you , and your food is lawful for them . And so are the virtuous women of the believers and the virtuous women of those who received the Scripture before you ( lawful for you ) when ye give them their marriage portions and live with them in honor , not in fornication , nor taking them as secret concubines . Whoso denieth the faith , his work is vain and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter .
5.6 . O ye who believe! When ye rise up for prayer , wash your face , and your hands up to the elbows , and lightly rub your heads and ( wash ) your feet up to the ankles . And if ye are unclean , purify yourselves . And if ye are sick or on a journey , or one of you cometh from the closet , or ye have had contact with women , and ye find not water , then go to clean , high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it . Allah would not place a burden on you , but He would purify you and would perfect His grace upon you , that ye may give thanks .
5.7 . Remember Allah ' s grace upon you and His covenant by which He bound you when ye said : We hear and we obey ; and keep your duty to Allah . Allah knoweth what is in the breasts ( of men ) .
5.8 . O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity , and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly . Deal justly , that is nearer to your duty . Observe your duty to Allah . Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do .
5.9 . Allah hath promised those who believe and do good works : Theirs will be forgiveness and immense reward .
5.10 . And they who disbelieve and deny Our revelations , such are rightful owners of hell .
5.11 . O ye who believe! Remember Allah ' s favor unto you , how a people were minded to stretch out their hands against you but He withheld their hands from you ; and keep your duty to Allah . In Allah let believers put their trust .
5.12 . Allah made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We raised among them twelve chieftains : and Allah said : Lo! I am with you . If ye establish worship and pay the poor due , and believe in My messengers and support them , and lend unto Allah a kindly loan , surely I shall remit your sins , and surely I shall bring you into gardens underneath which rivers flow . Whoso among you disbelieveth after this will go astray from a plain road .
5.13 . And because of their breaking their covenant , We have cursed them and made hard their hearts . They change words from their context and forget a part of that whereof they were admonished . Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all save a few of them . But bear with them and pardon them . Lo! Allah loveth the kindly .
5.14 . And with those who say : "Lo! we are Christians , " We made a covenant , but they forgot a part of that whereof they were admonished . Therefor We have stirred up enmity and hatred among them till the Day of Resurrection , when Allah will inform them of their handiwork .
5.15 . O people of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you , expounding unto you much of that which ye used to hide in the Scripture , and forgiving much . Now hath come unto you light from Allah and a plain Scripture
5.16 . Whereby Allah guideth him who seeketh His good pleasure unto paths of peace . He bringeth them out of darkness unto light by His decree , and guideth them unto a straight path .
5.17 . They indeed have disbelieved who say : Lo! Allah is the Messiah , son of Mary . Say : Who then can do aught against Allah , if He had willed to destroy the Messiah son of Mary , and his mother and everyone on earth? Allah ' s is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them . He createth what He will . And Allah is Able to do all things .
5.18 . The Jews and Christians say : We are sons of Allah and His loved ones . Say ; Why then doth He chastise you for your sins? Nay , ye are but mortals of His creating . He forgiveth whom He will , and chastiseth whom He will . Allah ' s is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them , and unto Him is the journeying .
5.19 . O people of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you to make things plain after an interval ( of cessation ) of the messengers , lest ye should say : There came not unto us a messenger of cheer nor any warner . Now hath a messenger of cheer and a warner come unto you . Allah is Able to do all things .
5.20 . And ( remember ) when Moses said unto his people : O my people ! Remember Allah ' s favor unto you , how He placed among you Prophets , and He made you Kings , and gave you that ( which ) He gave not to any ( other ) of ( His ) creatures .
