2:255 (These directions, tidings and warnings come from God, the One
True God.) There is no god but He, the Living, the Originator of life, the
Self-Subsisting Sustainer of all creation. Neither slumber, nor sleep
overtakes Him. All that exists in the highs and the lows, in the heavens
and earth, belongs to Him alone. Who can intercede in His Court except
by His Leave, and then, only in accordance with His laws? He knows
what lies open before humans and what is hidden from them. His
knowledge transcends time and space. No one can encompass a trace
of His knowledge but through His laws. The Throne of His Supreme
Control extends over the highs and the lows. No fatigue touches Him as
He benevolently guards His Dominion and creation. He is the Glorious,
the Supreme.
2:256 (Although this message has been sent down by the Almighty)
there is absolutely no compulsion or coercion in Religion. Whoever
rejects false gods (such as the clergy, human ‘authorities’) and attains
conviction in God, has grasped the Unbreakable Support. God is
Hearer, Knower.
2:257 God becomes the Close Guide of those who, after due reflection,
have chosen to believe in His Word (12:108). He brings them out of
darkness into light (through the Qur’an). Those who deny the Divine
System of Life have human "authorities" as patrons leading them from
light to darkness. Such people have chosen fire to be their eternal
companion.
Whoever has conviction and wants to come out of darkness into light, follows the Divine guidance (Qur'an). There is no compulsion or coercion.
Allah is Hearer and Knower.
