It is a short soora including many pearls and gems; it is here:

Soora 85

(In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

1. [I swear] by the sky [of Egypt having so many] towers!

2. And [by] the day of appointment [in the story of Moses, Pharaoh and the magicians!]

3. And [by] the witness [: the people who attended that event], and the witnessed [: the staff of Moses and the ropes of the magicians!]

4. Woe to [Pharaoh and his companions:] the makers of the ditch!

5. The kindled Fire [will be for them.]

6. When they will remain there in [chastisement till Doomsday.]

7. And they were witnesses [attending] that which [some of] them were doing to the believers.

8. They mal-treated the [Children of Israel] only because they believed in God [alone], the All-Mighty, the All-Laudable.

9. To Whom belongs the possession of the heavens and the earth; God is Witness to all things.

[By now, the story of Pharaoh with the Children of Israel came to an end; then God be glorified started to threaten the Jews who barred people from believing in Mohammed the messenger of God, when they said to them: he is a magician so do not believe him; therefore, God be glorified said:]

10. Surely, those [Jews] who seduce the believers: men and women, then they do not repent; there will be for them the chastisement of Hell [in the Next Life] and the chastisement of the Burning [on Doomsday.]

11. Surely, those who believe and do righteous [deeds]; there will be for them [in the Next Life] Gardens under [the trees of] which rivers flow; such is the great success.)

Quran 85: 12-22, which mean:

[Then God – be glorified – started to threaten the associaters and wrong-doers, and He said:]

(12. Surely, the assault of your Lord [on wrong-doers] is terrible.

13. It is He b Who originates [the creation from earth] and returns [bodies] back [to the earth.]

14. And is the Most Forgiving [for those who repent], the Most Loving [of those who regret and turn repentant to Him.]

15. Lord of the Throne, the All-Glorious.

16. The All-Doer of whatever He wants.

17. Have [you, Mohammed], received the story of the hosts?

[Some of such enemies were:]

18. Pharaoh and Thamood.

19. [Actually] those [associaters among the Arab] who disbelieve are with [their] denial [like the denial of the disbelievers among the past nations.]

20. And God behind them is All-Encompassing them on every side.

21. Certainly it is a glorious Quran,

22. In a Preserved Tablet [with Us, protected from any alteration and changing.])

By God's help, the interpretation of the soora 85 of the Quran is completed;
So (praise be to God: Lord of the worlds.)

This also is the recitation of this soora 85 by another reciter
Is this your way of replying to me after spending a bit of time doing a post that was in context to your OP. Rather than the typical troll that you attract. Perhaps it is time to help you practice your English and have you stop and reply in a sane manner to members that are not trolling you, or God, just the Church and some ill-informed Rabbis who really should have a better handle on the book than they do. Daniel was only confused about a few things. Jews today do not have an argument for any of the OT let alone the whole NT. As a Muslim you should be able to identify the people in all of Isaiah:65 as being the people that doomsday did not kill.
If trolls are going to hound you it might as well be for you being clueless about the religion you profess to follow. The ones undergoing 'harsh times' (in Isa:65) have been killed by the same sword Jesus will use, yes or no?? You can also see why you refusing to reply in a sane manner to my posts would point to you being a plant who is really a member of the loco psychopaths rather than a true Muslim batting the same psychopaths so they can hear your message, or the one of the people who did the material you quote from.

BTW, how did you manage to verify all the 'Elders' that you quote extensively were approved of by God? The Jews also follow the writings of 'their Elders', who may/may not have been part of the reason the Jews ended up in exile, also and if they are the ones in Matthew:23 they have some issues to clear up with God before they are acceptable shepherds. (such as Moses being part of the people that are gathered for the 1,000 year reign, a period that has parked the 10 Commandments, you are aware of that yet you have failed to comment on that aspect of 'doomsday', . . . and a whole lot more.

(Knowing much knowledge) is not good unless such knowledge is applied in practice.

The explanation:
Rabbis have studied much and for so tens of years.. therefore, they have much knowledge .. but this is not enough.
Clergies have studied much and for tens of years .. they also have much knowledge, and also this is defective.
Muslim scholars (the Ulama'a) also studied each for tens of years and this is not enough.

Once Abu Abd-Allah said to me: "I don't say the Ulama'a have no knowledge; they actually have much knowledge ... but they see the wrong and they keep silent concerning the wrong of people."

The Christ said: "Follow the words of the pharisees, but don't do like their work .. because they know much but they don't apply their knowledge in practice."

The important thing is the principles of God's religion, which He recommended to all His prophets and apostles .. that is the First Commandment which is inscribed in the stone for Moses,
that God is One without associate or peer and that none should be worshiped together with Him and that no graven thing should be erected whether such thing is in the sky above, or in the earth below or in the water below the earth.

And when Jesus Christ was asked about the commandment which is greater than all the commandments, he answered:
The first commandment is: God our Lord is One, and you should love God with all your heart, mind and power.

In spite of this, nowadays the followers of all these heavenly religions contradict this commandment, and they erect statues and images in their temples and they sanctify the tombs of their religious men.. especially Christians who have transgressed all bounds with their enthusiasm about Jesus Christ until they considered him as God Himself, or as the son of God or as part of Trinity, or as some said: God married the Holy Spirit and the only child of God: Jesus Christ inherited all creation.

Therefore, this is unacceptable which is worse than the worst idolatry... so whatever you worship, and whatever charity you do and whatever kindness and mercy you show will not avail you while you contradict the most important principle: the First Commandment that no god but God alone without associate, son or parents.

And unless you agree to this, any talk will be useless and in vain.
