and they are not its guardians? None can be its guardians except Al-Muttaqûn
(the pious - See V.2:2), but most of them know not.
(prayer) at the House (of Allâh, i.e. the Ka‘bah

people (Muslims), and will judge mankind justly by the Law of the Qur’ân (as
a just ruler), and will break the cross and kill the pigs and abolish the Jizyah
[a tax taken from the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) who are
under the protection of a Muslim government. This Jizyah tax will not be
accepted by ‘Îsâ (Jesus) عليه
