ٱلَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ ٱلرَّسُولَ ٱلنَّبِيَّ ٱلۡأُمِّيَّ ٱلَّذِي يَجِدُونَهُۥ مَكۡتُوبًا عِندَهُمۡ فِي ٱلتَّوۡرَىٰةِ وَٱلۡإِنجِيلِ يَأۡمُرُهُم بِٱلۡمَعۡرُوفِ وَيَنۡهَىٰهُمۡ عَنِ ٱلۡمُنكَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ ٱلطَّيِّبَٰتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيۡهِمُ ٱلۡخَبَٰٓئِثَ وَيَضَعُ عَنۡهُمۡ إِصۡرَهُمۡ وَٱلۡأَغۡلَٰلَ ٱلَّتِي كَانَتۡ عَلَيۡهِمۡۚ فَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ بِهِۦ وَعَزَّرُوهُ وَنَصَرُوهُ وَٱتَّبَعُواْ ٱلنُّورَ ٱلَّذِيٓ أُنزِلَ مَعَهُۥٓ أُوْلَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلۡمُفۡلِحُونَ


“Those who obey the mes-sen-ger [Muhammad ( may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him )], the Prophet who cannot read nor write, about which they find written down with them in the Taurat and the Injeel.” He commands them to do good and forbids them from evil activities, and he makes lawful for them to eat all good things and makes unlawful for them to eat forbidden things and he relieves them from the burdens and yokes (or bindings) that were upon them (e.g. if clothes become impure, Jews had to cut unclean part of it or burn it to make it pure. Now we can just wash it with water to make it pure). So those, who believe in him, and honour him, and help him and follow that light (i.e. the Quran) which has been sent down with him, they will definitely be successful.
