  3. [3:42]
    And when the angels said: O Mary! Lo! Allah hath chosen thee and made thee pure, and hath preferred thee above (all) the women of creation.

    O Mary! Be obedient to thy Lord, prostrate thyself and bow with those who bow (in worship).

    This is of the tidings of things hidden. We reveal it unto thee (Muhammad). Thou wast not present with them when they threw their pens (to know) which of them should be the guardian of Mary, nor wast thou present with them when they quarrelled (thereupon).

    (And remember) when the angels said: O Mary! Lo! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a word from him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, illustrious in the world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near (unto Allah).

    He will speak unto mankind in his cradle and in his manhood, and he is of the righteous.

    She said: My Lord! How can I have a child when no mortal hath touched me ? He said: So (it will be). Allah createth what He will. If He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is.

    And He will teach him the Scripture and wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel,

    And will make him a messenger unto the Children of Israel, (saying): Lo! I come unto you with a sign from your Lord. Lo! I fashion for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a bird, by Allah’s leave. I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I raise the dead, by Allah’s leave. And I announce unto you what ye eat and what ye store up in your houses. Lo! herein verily is a portent for you, if ye are to be believers.

    And (I come) confirming that which was before me of the Torah, and to make lawful some of that which was forbidden unto you. I come unto you with a sign from your Lord, so keep your duty to Allah and obey me.

    Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.

    But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief, he cried: Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah ? The disciples said: We will be Allah’s helpers. We believe in Allah, and bear thou witness that we have surrendered (unto Him).

    Our Lord! We believe in that which Thou hast revealed and we follow him whom Thou hast sent. Enrol us among those who witness (to the truth).

    And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.

    (And remember) when Allah said: O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me, and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then unto Me ye will (all) return, and I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ.

    As for those who disbelieve I shall chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the world and the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers.

    And as for those who believe and do good works, He will pay them their wages in full. Allah loveth not wrong-doers.

    This (which) We recite unto thee is a revelation and a wise reminder.

    Lo! the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust, then He said unto him: Be! and he is.

    (This is) the truth from thy Lord (O Muhammad), so be not thou of those who waver.

    And whoso disputeth with thee concerning him, after the knowledge which hath come unto thee, say (unto him): Come! We will summon our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and ourselves and yourselves, then we will pray humbly (to our Lord) and (solemnly) invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie.

    Lo! This verily is the true narrative. There is no God save Allah, and lo! Allah, He verily is, is the Mighty, the Wise.

    And if they turn away, then lo! Allah is Aware of (who are) the corrupters.

    Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to an agreement between us and you: that we shall worship none but Allah, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside Allah. And if they turn away, then say: Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered (unto Him).

    O People of the Scripture! Why will ye argue about Abraham, when the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed till after him ? Have ye then no sense ?

    Lo! ye are those who argue about that whereof ye have some knowledge: Why then argue ye concerning that whereof ye have no knowledge ? Allah knoweth. Ye know not.

    Abraham was not a Jew, nor yet a Christian; but he was an upright man who had surrendered (to Allah), and he was not of the idolaters.

    Lo! those of mankind who have the best claim to Abraham are those who followed him, and this Prophet and those who believe (with him); and Allah is the Protecting Guardian of the believers.

    A party of the People of the Scripture long to make you go astray; and they make none to go astray except themselves, but they perceive not.

    O People of the Scripture! Why disbelieve ye in the revelations of Allah, when ye (yourselves) bear witness (to their truth) ?

    O People of the Scripture! Why confound ye truth with falsehood and knowingly conceal the truth ?

    And a party of the People of the Scripture say: Believe in that which hath been revealed unto those who believe at the opening of the day, and disbelieve at the end thereof, in order that they may return;

    And believe not save in one who followeth your religion – Say (O Muhammad): Lo! the guidance is Allah’s Guidance – that anyone is given the like of that which was given unto you or that they may argue with you in the presence of their Lord. Say (O Muhammad): Lo! the bounty is in Allah’s hand. He bestoweth it on whom He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All- Knowing.

    He selecteth for His mercy whom He will. Allah is of Infinite Bounty.


  4. I don't believe japanese' saying . They just examine the spit . It is not the PCR test .

  5. Thomas Bach, the IOC chief, is complicit with Tokyo. Bach seems complicit with displaying Japan's war-crimes flag, the Japanese Swastika (aka rising-sun flag) and thus he must feel okay with nazi Germany's history. Thomas Bach is from Germany.

  6. [[[[[[[ Japan's biotest Tokyo Olympics ]]]]]]] The Tokyo Olympics is a biotest of the corona virus and radioactive water contaminated by Japan on people around the world.

  7. No spectators yikes that’s terrible

  8. As the reporter said at the end, the whole thing could be called off if Covid cases increase a lot, something very possible at the least, even likely.
    If that happened, calling off the Games would be even more costly than if they were postponed or cancelled earlier, and a lot of time and effort and the travel to get to the Olympics would have been totally wasted. Moreover, the reputation of the IOC and Olympics will, to put it mildly, be very severely damaged for years, maybe decades, especially as it would be appear the IOC would rather risk people’s health and lives than not to hold an event that could always be held later when it would be safer to do so. I know making money is very, very important but is the health of people not more important? Surely it must be.

  9. This is what it’s really like in Tokyo, state of emergency doesn’t mean much at all

  10. The Ugly Truth of the Tokyo Olympics.
    1. Japanese player gets gold every month by keeping him awake with corrugated cardboard bed
    2. Eco-friendly corrugated paper and Fukushima contaminated water discharge
    3. Corrugated cardboard supplier is Prime Minister Abe's brother
    4. Filled with water from the Tokyo Bay Yacht Stadium – Japanese players have already adjusted
    5. 100% responsibility of participating athletes in case of corona confirmation – Japan has excellent technology and hygiene, so there is no problem with quarantine at all.
    This is Japan, the host country of the Olympics.

  11. US Covid deaths 625,363 New Zealand 26. US has 24,048 times more Covid deaths than New Zealand.

    11 months since New Zealand's last Covid death, watching American media is like stepping back in time.

    America: Stop looking in the mirror for answers and start following countries that lead the world in pandemic management.

    Americans spoiling the Olympics for those countries that took the pandemic seriously.

  12. Stop the Olympics, period.

  13. Greetings from the US 🇺🇸 Japan Should STOP feeding radioactive Fukushima foods to athletes at the Olympics! This is totally irresponsible and evil of them; they are NOT safe to eat!

  14. Yesterday the number here was 3,738 new cases. Getting higher and higher each day. People are worried.

  15. Tokyo Olympics will be remembered as the most useless Olympics of whole history.
    This Tokyo Olympics is just covid-19 Olympics and Fukushima nuclear radiation Olympics.
    The most disgraceful and the most useless Olympics of whole history.

  16. Not in NBC's interest to see Olympics cancelled $$$

  17. Why is the world trying to play the Olympics in a country where Covid 19 is expanding?

  18. Waoo in tokio is going bad 13000 infection we have to be safe from the covid 19 right

  19. Covid precautions when there are already numerous cases of COVID inside Olympic Village and incoming athletes from around the world. Seems like not cautious enough.

  20. Should have been canceled!!

  21. Wear your mask nbc don’t go in our trains or streets stay at the village
