Mircea Eliade "From Primitives to Zen": 'THOSE WHO REPENT THEREAFTER
AND MAKE AMENDS. . . .'
('Qur'an,' 11 1, 78-84)
Say: 'We believe in God, and that which has been sent
down on us, and sent down on Abraham and Ishmael,
Isaac and Jacob, and the Tribes, and in that which was
given to Moses and Jesus, and the Prophets, of their
Lord; we make no division between any of them, and
to Him we surrender.'
Whoso desires another religion than Islam, it shall
not be accepted of him; in the next world he shall
be among the losers.
How shall God guide a people who have disbelieved
After they believed, and bore witness that the
Messenger is true, and the clear signs came to them?
God guides not the people of the evildoers
Those- their recompense is that there shall rest
on them the curse of God and of the angels
and of men, altogether, therein dwelling forever,
the chastisement shall -not be lightened
for them; no respite shall be given them.
But those who repent thereafter, and make amends-
God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.
