rendition of Surah The Cow(al-Baqarah)
2:1 Alif Laam Meem.
2:2 That (is) the book no doubt in it, a Guidance for the God-conscious.
2:3 Those who believe in the unseen, and establish the prayer, and out of what We have provided them they spend.
2:4 And those who believe in what (is) sent down to you and what was sent down from before you and in the Hereafter they firmly believe.
2:5 Those (are) on Guidance from their Lord, and those - they (are) the successful ones.
2:6 Indeed, those who disbelieve[d], (it) is same to them whether you warn them or not you warn them, not they believe.
2:7 Has set a seal Allah on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their vision (is) a veil. And for them (is) a punishment great.
2:8 And of the people (are some) who say, "We believed in Allah and in the Day [the] Last," but not they (are) believers (at all).
2:9 They seek to deceive Allah and those who believe[d], and not they deceive except themselves, and not they realize (it).
2:10 In their hearts (is) a disease, so has increased them Allah (in) disease; and for them (is) a punishment painful because they used to [they] lie.
2:11 And when it is said to them, "(Do) not spread corruption in the earth," they say, "Only we (are) reformers."
2:12 Beware, indeed they themselves (are) the ones who spread corr [and] but not they realize (it).
2:13 And when it is said to them, "Believe as believed the people," they say, "Should we believe as believed the fools?" Beware, certainly they themselves (are) the fools [and] but not they know.
2:14 And when they meet those who believe[d], they say, "We believe[d]." But when they are alone with their evil ones, they say, "Indeed, we (are) with you, only we (are) mockers."
2:15 Allah mocks at them, and prolongs them in their transgression, they wander blindly.
2:16 Those (are) the ones who bought [the] astraying for [the] guidance. So not profited their commerce and not were they guided-ones.
2:17 Their example (is) like (the) example (of) the one who kindled a fire, then, when it illuminated what (was) around him took away Allah their light and left them in darkness[es], (so) not (do) they see.
2:18 Deaf, dumb, blind, so they not [they] will not return.
2:19 Or like a rainstorm from the sky in it (are) darkness[es], and thunder, and lightning. They put their fingers in their ears from the thunderclaps (in) fear (of) [the] death. And Allah (is) [the One Who] encompasses the disbelievers.
2:20 Almost the lightning snatches away their sight. Whenever it flashes for them they walk in it, and when it darkens on them they stand (still). And if had willed Allah, He would certainly have taken their hearing, and their sight. Indeed, Allah (is) on every thing All-Powerful.
2:21 O mankind! worship your Lord, the One Who created you and those from before you, so that you may become righteous.
2:22 The One Who made for you the earth a resting place and the sky a canopy, and sent down from the sky water, then brought forth therewith [of] the fruits (as) provision for you. So (do) not set up to Allah rivals while you [you] know.
2:23 And if you are in doubt about what We have revealed to Our slave, then produce a chapter [of] like it and call your witnesses from other than Allah if you are truthful.
2:24 But if not you do, and never will you do, then fear the Fire whose [its] fuel (is) [the] men and [the] stones, prepared for the disbelievers.
2:25 And give good news (to) those who believe, and do [the] righteous deeds, that for them (will be) Gardens, flow [from] under them the rivers. Every time they are provided therefrom of fruit (as) provision, they (will) say, "This (is) the one which we were provided from before." And they will be given therefrom (things) in resemblance; And for them therein spouses purified, and they therein (will) abide forever.
2:26 Indeed, Allah (is) not ashamed to set forth an example (like) even (of) a mosquito and (even) something above it. Then as for those who believed, [thus] they will know that it (is) the truth from their Lord. And as for those who disbelieved [thus] they will say what (did) intend Allah by this example? He lets go astray by it many and He guides by it many. And not He lets go astray by it except the defiantly disobedient.
2:27 Those who break (the) Covenant (of) Allah from after its ratification, and [they] cut what has ordered Allah it to be joined and [they] spread corruption in the earth. Those, they (are) the losers.
2:28 How (can) you disbelieve in Allah? While you were dead then He gave you life; then He will cause you to die, then He will give you life, then to Him you will be returned.
2:29 He (is) the One Who created for you what (is) in the earth, all. Moreover He turned to the heaven and fashioned them seven heavens. And He of every thing (is) All-Knowing.
2:30 And when said your Lord to the angels, "Indeed, I (am) going to place in the earth a vicegerent, they said, "Will You place in it (one) who will spread corruption in it and will shed [the] blood[s], while we, [we] glorify (You) with Your praises and we sanctify [to] You." He said, "Indeed, [I] know what not you know."
2:31 And He taught Adam the names - all of them. Then He displayed them to the angels, then He said, "Inform Me of (the) names (of) these, if you are truthful."
2:32 They said, "Glory be to You! No knowledge (is) for us except what You have taught us. Indeed You! You (are) the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
2:33 He said, "O Adam! Inform them of their names." And when he had informed them of their names, He said, "Did not I say to you, Indeed, I [I] know (the) unseen (of) the heavens and the earth, and I know what you reveal and what you [were] conceal."
2:34 And when We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam," [so] they prostrated except Iblees. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers.
2:35 And We said, "O Adam! Dwell you and your spouse (in) Paradise, and [you both] eat from it freely (from) wherever you [both] wish. But do not [you two] approach this [the] tree, lest you [both] be of the wrongdoers."
2:36 Then made [both of] them slip the Shaitaan from it, and he got [both of] them out from what they [both] were in [it]. And We said, "Go down (all of you), some of you to others (as) enemy; and for you in the earth (is) a dwelling place and a provision for a period."
2:37 Then received Adam from his Lord words, So (his Lord) turned towards him. Indeed He! He (is) the Oft-returning (to mer the Most Merciful.
2:38 We said, "Go down from it all (of you), and when, comes to you from Me Guidance, then whoever follows My Guidance, [then] no fear (will be) on them and not they will grieve.
2:39 And those who disbelieve[d] and deny Our Signs, those (are the) companions (of) the Fire; they in it (will) abide forever."
2:40 O Children (of) Israel! Remember My Favor which I bestowed upon you and fulfill, My Covenant I will fulfill your covenant and Me Alone fear [Me].
2:41 And believe in what I have sent down confirming that which (is) with you, and (do) not be (the) first disbeliever of it. And (do) not exchange My Signs (for) a price small, and Me Alone fear [Me].
2:42 And (do) not mix the Truth with [the] falsehood and conceal the Truth while you [you] know.
2:43 And establish the prayer and give zakah and bow down with those who bow down.
2:44 Do you order [the] people [the] righteousness and you forget yourselves, while you [you] recite the Book? Then, will not you use reason?
2:45 And seek help through patience and the prayer; and indeed, it (is) surely difficult except on the humble ones,
2:46 Those who believe that they will meet their Lord and that they to Him will return.
2:47 O Children (of) Israel! Remember My Favor which I bestowed upon you and that I [I] preferred you over the worlds.
2:48 And fear a day, (will) not avail any soul for (another) soul anything, and not will be accepted from it any intercession, and not will be taken from it a compensation, and not they will be helped.
2:49 And when We saved you from (the) people (of) Firaun (who were) afflicting you (wit horrible torment, slaughtering your sons and letting live your women. And in that (was) a trial from your Lord great.
2:50 And when We parted for you the sea, then We saved you, and We drowned (the) people (of) Firaun while you (were) looking.
2:51 And when We appointed (for) Musa forty nights. Then you took the calf from after him and you (were) wrongdoers.
2:52 Then We forgave you from after that, so that you may (be) grateful.
2:53 And when We gave Musa the Book and the Criterion, perhaps you (would be) guided.
2:54 And when said Musa to his people, "O my people! Indeed, you [you] have wronged yourselves by your taking the calf. So turn in repentance to your Creator, and kill yourselves. That (is) better for you with your Creator." Then He turned towards you. Indeed He! He (is) the-returning, the Most Merciful.
2:55 And when you said, "O Musa! Never (will) we believe in you until we see Allah manifestly." So seized you the thunderbolt while you (were) looking.
2:56 Then We revived you from after your death, so that you may (be) grateful.
2:57 And We shaded [over] you (with) [the] clouds and We sent down to you [the] Manna and [the] quails, "Eat from (the) good things that We have provided you." And not they wronged Us, but they were (to) themselves doing wrong.
2:58 And when We said, "Enter this town, then eat from wherever you wish[ed] abundantly, and enter the gate prostrating. And say, "Repentance, We will forgive for you your sins. And We will increase the good-doers (in reward)."
2:59 But changed those who wronged (the) word other (than) (that) which was said to them; so We sent down upon those who wronged, a punishment from the sky because they were defiantly disobeying.
2:60 And when asked (for) water Musa for his people, [so] We said, "Strike with your staff the stone." Then gushed forth from it two ten (i.e twelve) springs. Indeed knew all (the) people their drinking place. "Eat and drink from (the) provision (of) Allah, and (do) not act wickedly in the earth spreading corruption."
2:61 And when you said, "O Musa! Never (will) we endure [on] food (of) one (kind), so pray for us (to) your Lord to bring forth for us out of what grows the earth, of its herbs, [and] its cucumbers, [and] its garlic, [and] its lentils, and its onions." He said, "Would you exchange that which [it] (is) inferior for that which [it] (is) better? Go down (to) a city, so indeed for you (is) what you have asked (for)." And were struck on them the humiliation and the misery and they drew on themselves wrath of Allah That (was) because they used to disbelieve in (the) Signs (of) Allah and kill the Prophets without (any) [the] right. That (was) because they disobeyed and they were transgressing.
2:62 Indeed, those who believed and those who became Jews and the Christians and the Sabians - who believed in Allah and the Day [the] Last and did righteous deeds, so for them (is) their reward with their Lord and no fear on them and not they will grieve.
2:63 And when We took your covenant and We raised over you the mount, "Hold what We have given you with strength, and remember what (is) in it, perhaps you (would become) righteous."
2:64 Then you turned away from after that. So if not (for the) Grace (of) Allah upon you and His Mercy, surely you would have been of the losers.
2:65 And indeed, you knew those who transgressed among you in the (matter of) Sabbath. So We said to them, "Be apes, despised."
2:66 So We made it a deterrent punishment for those between (in front) Hands (of them) and those after them and an admonition for those who fear (Allah).
2:67 And when said Musa to his people, "Indeed, Allah commands you that you slaughter a cow." They said, "Do you take us (in) ridicule." He said, "I seek refuge in Allah that I be among the ignorant."
2:68 They said, "Pray for us (to) your Lord to make clear to us what it (is)." He said, "Indeed, He says, "[Indeed] it (is) a cow not old and not young, middle aged between that," so do what you are commanded."
2:69 They said, "Pray for us (to) your Lord to make clear to us what (is) its color." He said, "Indeed, He says, '[Indeed] it is a cow yellow, bright (in) its color, pleasing (to) those who see (it).'"
2:70 They said, "Pray for us (to) your Lord to make clear to us what it (is). Indeed, [the] cows look alike to us. And indeed we, if wills Allah, (will) surely be those who are
2:71 He said, "Indeed, He says, "[Indeed] it (is) a cow not trained to plough the earth, and not water the field; sound, no blemish in it." They said, "Now you have come with the truth." So they slaughtered it, and not they were near (to) doing (it).
2:72 And when you killed a man, then you disputed concerning it, but Allah (is) the One Who brought forth what you were concealing.
2:73 So We said, "Strike him with a part of it." Like this revives Allah the dead, and shows you His Signs, perhaps you may use your intellect.
2:74 Then hardened your hearts from after that so they (became) like [the] stones or stronger (in) hardness. And indeed, from the stones certainly (there are some) whi gush forth from it [the] rivers, and indeed, from them certainly (there are some) whi split, so comes out from it [the] water, and indeed, from them certainly (there are some) whi fall down from fear (of) Allah. And not (is) Allah unaware of what you do.
2:75 Do you hope that they will believe [for] you while indeed (there) has been a party of them, (who used to) hear (the) words (of) Allah, then they distort it from after [what] they understood it, while they know?
2:76 And when they meet those who believe[d], they say, "We have believed." But when meet in private some of them with some (others), they say, "Do you tell them what has Allah to you so that they argue with you therewith before your Lord? Then do (you) not understand?"
2:77 Do not they know that Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare?
2:78 And among them (are) unlettered ones, (who) do not know the book except wishful thinking and not they (do anything) except guess.
2:79 So woe to those who write the book with their (own) hands then, they say, "This (is) from Allah," to barter with it (for) a price little. So woe to them for what have written their hands and woe to them for what they earn.
2:80 And they say, "Never will touch us the Fire except (for) days numbered." Say, "Have you taken from Allah a covenant, so never will break Allah His Covenant? Or (do) you say against Allah what not you know?"
2:81 Yes, whoever earned evil and surrounded him with his sins - [so] those (are the) companions (of) the Fire; they in it (will) abide forever.
2:82 And those who believed and did righteous deeds, those (are the) companions (of) Paradise; they in it (will) abide forever.
2:83 And when We took (the) covenant (from the) Children (of) Israel, "Not you will worship except Allah, and with [the] parents (be) good and (with) relatives and [the] orphans and the needy, and speak to [the] people good, and establish the prayer and give the zakah." Then you turned away, except a few of you, and you (were) refusing.
2:84 And when We took your covenant, "Not will you shed your blood and not (will) evict yourselves from your homes," then you ratified while you (were) witnessing.
2:85 Then you (are) those (who) kill yourselves and evict a party of you from their homes, you support one another against them in sin and [the] transgression. And if they come to you (as) captives, you ransom them, while it (was) forbidden to you their eviction. So do you believe in part (of) the Book and disbelieve in part? Then what (should be the) recompense (for the one) who does that among you, except disgrace in the life (of) the world; and (on the) Day of [the] Resurrection they will be sent back to (the) most severe punishment? And not (is) Allah unaware of what you do.
2:86 Those (are) the ones who bought the life (of) the world for the Hereafter; so not will be lightened for them the punishment and not they will be helped.
2:87 And indeed We gave Musa the Book and We followed up from after him with [the] Messengers. And We gave Isa, (the) son (of) Maryam, [the] clear signs and We supported him (with) Spirit Holy Is it (not) so (that) whenever came to you a Messenger with what (does) not desire yourselves, you acted arrogantly? So a party you denied, and a party you kill(ed).
2:88 And they said, "Our hearts (are) wrapped." Nay, has cursed them Allah for their disbelief; so little (is) what they believe.
2:89 And when came to them a Book of from Allah confirming what (was) with them, though they used to from before (that), pray for victory over those who disbelieved - then when came to them what they recognized, they disbelieved in it. So (the) curse (of) Allah (is) on the disbelievers.
2:90 Evil (is) that (for) which they have sold with themselves, that they disbelieve in what has revealed Allah, grudging that sends down Allah of His Grace on whom He wills from His servants. So they have drawn (on themsel wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers (is) a punishment humiliating.
2:91 And when it is said to them, "Believe in what has revealed Allah," they say, "We believe in what was revealed to us." And they disbelieve in what (is) besides it, while it (is) the truth confirming what (is) with them. Say, "Then why (did) you kill (the) Prophets (of) Allah from before, if you were believers?"
2:92 And indeed came to you Musa with [the] clear signs, then you took the calf from after him and you (were) wrongdoers.
2:93 And when We took your covenant and We raised over you the mount, "Hold what We gave you, with firmness and listen." They said, "We heard and we disobeyed." And they were made to drink in their hearts (love of) the calf because of their disbelief. Say, "Evil (is) that orders you (to do) it with your faith, if you are believers."
2:94 Say, "If - is for you the home (of) the Hereafter with Allah exclusively, from excluding the mankind, then wish (for) [the] death, if you are truthful."
2:95 And never (will) they wish for it, ever, because (of what) sent ahead their hands. And Allah (is) All-Knower of the wrongdoers.
2:96 And surely you will find them (the) most greedy (of) [the] mankind for life, and (greedier) than those who associate[d] partners (with Al Loves (each) one of them if he could be granted a life (of) a thousand year(s). But not it (will) remove him from the punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah (is) All-Seer of what they do.
2:97 Say, "Whoever is an enemy to Jibreel - then indeed he brought it down on your heart by (the) permission (of) Allah confirming what between hands (before it) and a guidance and glad tiding(s) for the believers."
2:98 Whoever is an enemy (to) Allah and His Angels, and His Messengers, and Jibreel, and Meekael, then indeed Allah (is) an enemy to the disbelievers.
2:99 And indeed We revealed to you Verses clear, and not disbelieves in them except the defiantly disobedient.
2:100 And is (it not that) whenever they took a covenant, threw it away a party of them? Nay, most of them (do) not believe.
2:101 And when came to them a Messenger (of) from Allah confirming what (was) with them, threw away a party of those who were given the Book (the) Book (of) Allah behind their backs as if they (do) not know.
2:102 And they followed what recite(d) the devils over (the) kingdom (of) Sulaiman. And not disbelieved Sulaiman [and] but the devils disbelieved, they teach the people [the] magic and what was sent down to the two angels in Babylon, Harut and Marut. And not they both teach any one unless they [both] say, "Only we (are) a trial, so (do) not disbelieve." But they learn from those what [they] causes separation with it between the man and his spouse. And not they (could) at all [be those who] harm with it any one except by permission (of) Allah. And they learn what harms them and not profits them. And indeed they knew that whoever buys it, not for him in the Hereafter any share. And surely evil (is) what they sold with it themselves, if they were (to) know.
2:103 And if [that] they (had) believed and feared (Allah), surely (the) reward (of) from Allah (would have been) better, if they were (to) know.
2:104 O you who believe[d]! "(Do) not say "Raina" and say "Unzurna" and listen. And for the disbelievers (is) a punishment painful.
2:105 (Do) not like those who disbelieve from (the) People (of) the Book and not those who associate partners ( that (there should) be sent down to you any good from your Lord. And Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah (is the) Possessor (of) [the] Bounty [the] Great.
2:106 What We abrogate (of) a sign or [We] cause it to be forgotten, We bring better than it or similar (to) it. Do not you know that Allah over every thing (is) All-Powerful?
2:107 Do not you know that, Allah for Him (is the) Kingdom (of) the heavens and the earth? And not (is) for you from besides Allah any protector and not any helper.
2:108 Or (do) you wish that you ask your Messenger as was asked Musa from before? And whoever exchanges [the] disbelief with [the] faith, so certainly he went astray (from) (the) evenness (of) the way.
2:109 Wish[ed] many from (the) People (of) the Book if they could turn you back from after your (having) faith (to) disbelievers, (out of) jealousy from (of) themselves, (even) from after [what] became clear to them, the truth. So forgive and overlook until brings Allah His Command. Indeed, Allah on every thing (is) All-Powerful.
2:110 And establish the prayer and give [the] zakah. And whatever you send forth for yourselves of good (deeds), you will find it with Allah. Indeed, Allah of what you do (is) All-Seer.
2:111 And they said, "Never will enter the Paradise except who is (a) Jew[s] or (a) Christian[s]." That (is) their wishful thinking. Say, "Bring your proof if you are [those who are] truthful."
2:112 Yes, whoever submits his face to Allah and he (is) a good-doer, so for him (is) his reward with his Lord. And no fear (will be) on them and not they (will) grieve.
2:113 And said the Jews, "Not the Christians (are) on anything," and said the Christians, "Not the Jews (are) on anything," although they recite the Book. Like that said those who (do) not know, similar their saying. [So] Allah will judge between them (on the) Day (of) Resurrection in what they were [in it] differing.
2:114 And who (is) more unjust than (one) who prevents (the) masajid (of) Allah to be mentioned in them His name, and strives for their destruction? Those! Not it is for them that they enter them except (like) those in fear. For them in the world (is) disgrace and for them in the Hereafter (is) a punishment great.
2:115 And for Allah (is) the east and the west, so wherever you turn [so] there (is the) face (of) Allah. Indeed, Allah (is) All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.
2:116 And they said, "has taken Allah a son." Glory be to Him! Nay, for Him (is) what (is) in the heavens and the earth. All to Him (are) humbly obedient.
2:117 (The) Originator (of) the heavens and the earth! And when He decrees a matter, [so] only He says to it "Be," and it becomes.
2:118 And said those who (do) not know, "Why not speaks to us Allah or comes to us a sign?" Like that said those from before them similar their saying. Became alike their hearts. Indeed, We have made clear the signs for people (who) firmly believe.
2:119 Indeed We! [We] have sent you with the truth, (as) a bearer of good news and (as) a warner. And not you will be asked about (the) companions (of) the blazing Fire.
2:120 And never will be pleased with you the Jews and [not] the Christians until you follow their religion. Say, "Indeed, (the) Guidance (of) Allah, it (is) the Guidance." And if you follow their desires after what has come to you of the knowledge, not for you from Allah any protector and not any helper.
2:121 Those, We have given them the Book recite it (as it has the) right (of) its recitation. Those (people) believe in it. And whoever disbelieves in it, then those, they (are) the losers.
2:122 O Children (of) Israel! Remember My Favor which I bestowed upon you and that I [I] preferred you over the worlds.
2:123 And fear a day not will avail a soul (of) (another) soul anything and not will be accepted from it any compensation, and not will benefit it any intercession, and not they will be helped.
2:124 And when tried Ibrahim his Lord with words and he fulfilled them, He said, "Indeed (am) the One to make you for the mankind a leader." He said, "And from my offspring?" He said, "(Does) not reach My Covenant (to) the wrongdoers."
2:125 And when We made the House a place of return for mankind and (a place of) security and (said), "Take [from] (the) standing place (of) Ibrahim, (as) a place of prayer." And We made a covenant with Ibrahim and Ismail [that], "[You both] purify My House for those who circumambulate and those who devote and those who bow down those who prostrate
2:126 And when said Ibrahim, "My Lord make this a city secure and provide its people with fruits, (to) whoever believed from them in Allah and the Day the Last," He said, "And whoever disbelieved, [then] I will grant him enjoym a little; then I will force him to (the) punishment (of) the Fire, and evil (is) the destination.
2:127 And when (was) raising Ibrahim the foundations of the House and Ismail, (saying), "Our Lord! Accept from us. Indeed You! [You] (are) the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.
2:128 Our Lord! [and] Make us both submissive to You. And from our offspring a community submissive to You. And show us our ways of worship and turn to us. Indeed You! [You] (are) the Oft-returning, the Most Merciful.
2:129 Our Lord! [And] raise up in them a Messenger from them (who) will recite to them Your Verses and will teach them the Book and the wisdom and purify them. Indeed You! You (are) the All-Mighty the All-Wise."
2:130 And who will turn away from (the) religion (of) Ibrahim except who fooled himself? And indeed We chose him in the world, and indeed he, in, the Hereafter surely (will be) among the righteous.
2:131 When said to him his Lord "Submit (yourself)," he said, "I (have) submitted to (the) Lord (of) the worlds."
2:132 And enjoined [it] Ibrahim (upon) his sons and Yaqub, "O my sons! Indeed, Allah has chosen for you the religion, so not (should) you die except while you (are) submissive."
2:133 Or were you witnesses when came to Yaqub [the] death, when he said to his sons, "What will you worship from after me?" They said, "We will worship your God and (the) God (of) your forefathers, Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq - God One. And we to Him (are) submissive."
2:134 This (was) a community (which) has passed away, for it what it earned and for you what you have earned. And not you will be asked about what they used to do.
2:135 And they said, "Be Jews or Christians, (then) you will be guided." Say, "Nay, (the) religion (of) Ibrahim, (the) upright; and not he was of those who associated partners
2:136 Say, "We have believed in Allah and what (is) revealed to us and what was revealed to Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq and Yaqub and the descendants, and what was given (to) Musa and Isa and what was given (to) the Prophets from their Lord. Not we make distinction between any of them. And we to Him (are) submissive."
2:137 So if they believe[d] in (the) like (of) what you have believed in [it], then indeed, they are (rightly) guided. But if they turn away, then only they (are) in dissension. So will suffice you against th Allah, and He (is) the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.
2:138 (The) color (religion) (of) Allah! And who (is) better than Allah at coloring? And we to Him (are) worshippers.
2:139 Say, "Do you argue with us about Allah while He (is) our Lord and your Lord? And for us (are) our deeds and for you (are) your deeds and we to Him (are) sincere.
2:140 Or (do) you say that Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq and Yaqub and the descendants were Jews or Christians?" Say, "Are you better knowing or (is) Allah?" And who (is) more unjust than (the one) who concealed a testimony (that) he has from Allah? And not (is) Allah unaware of what you do.
2:141 This (was) a community (which) has passed away, for it what it earned and for you what you have earned. And not you will be asked about what they used to do.
2:142 Will say the foolish ones from the people, "What (has) turned them from their direction of prayer which they were used to [on it]." Say, "For Allah (is) the east and the west. He guides whom He wills to a path straight."
2:143 And thus We made you a community (of the) middle way so that you will be witnesses over the mankind, and will be the Messenger on you a witness. And not We made the direction of prayer which you were used to [on it] except that We make evident (he) who follows the Messenger from (he) who turns back on his heels. And indeed, it was certainly a great (test) except for those whom guided (by) Allah. And not will Allah let go waste your faith. Indeed, Allah (is) to [the] mankind Full of Kindness, Most Merciful.
2:144 Indeed, We see (the) turning (of) your face towards the heaven. So We will surely turn you (to the) direction of prayer you will be pleased with. So turn your face towards the direction (of) Al-Masjid Al-Haraam and wherever that you are [so] turn your faces (in) its direction. And indeed, those who were given the Book surely know that it (is) the truth from their Lord. And not (is) Allah unaware of what they do.
2:145 And even if you come (to) those who were given the Book with all (the) signs, not they would follow your direction of prayer, and not (will) you (be) a follower (of) their direction of prayer And not some of them (are) followers (of the) direction of prayer (of each) other. And if you followed their desires from after [what] came to you of the knowledge, indeed, you (would) then (be) surely among the wrongdoers.
2:146 (To) those whom We gave [them] the Book, they recognize it like they recognize their sons. And indeed, a group of them surely they conceal the Truth while they know.
2:147 The Truth (is) from your Lord, so (do) not be among the doubters.
2:148 And for everyone (is) a direction - he turns towards it, so race (to) the good. Wherever that you will be will bring you (by) Allah together. Indeed, Allah (is) on every thing All-Powerful.
2:149 And from wherever you start forth, [so] turn your face (in the) direction (of) Al-Masjid Al-Haraam. And indeed, it (is) surely the truth from your Lord. And not (is) Allah unaware of what you do.
2:150 And from wherever you start forth [so] turn your face (in the) direction (of) Al-Masjid Al-Haraam. And wherever that you (all) are [so] turn your faces (in) its direction, so that not will be for the people against you any argument except those who wronged among them; so (do) not fear them, but fear Me. And that I complete My favor upon you [and] so that you may (be) guided.
2:151 As We sent among you a Messenger from you (who) recites to you Our verses and purifies you and teaches you the Book and the wisdom and teaches you what not you were knowing.
2:152 So remember Me, I will remember you and be grateful to Me and (do) not (be) ungrateful to Me.
2:153 O you who believe[d]! Seek help through patience and the prayer. Indeed, Allah (is) with the patient ones.
2:154 And (do) not say for (the ones) who are slain in (the) way (of) Allah "(They are) dead." Nay, (they are) alive [and] but you (do) not perceive.
2:155 And surely We will test you with something of [the] fear and [the] hunger and loss of [the] wealth and [the] lives and [the] fruits, but give good news (to) the patient ones.
2:156 Those who, when strikes them a misfortune, they say, "Indeed, we belong to Allah and indeed we towards Him will return."
2:157 Those on them (are) blessings from their Lord and Mercy. And those [they] (are) the guided ones.
2:158 Indeed, the Safa and Marwah (are) from (the) symbols (of) Allah. So whoever performs Hajj (of) the House or performs Umrah, so no blame on him that he walks between [both of] them. And whoever voluntarily does good, then indeed, Allah (is) All-Appreciative, All-Knowing.
2:159 Indeed, those who conceal what We revealed of the clear proofs, and the Guidance, from after [what] We made clear to the people in the Book - those, curses them Allah and curse them the ones who curse.
2:160 Except those who repent[ed] and reform[ed] and openly declar[ed]. Then those, I will accept repentance from them, and I (am) the Acceptor of Repentance, the Most Merciful.
2:161 Indeed, those who disbelieve[d] and die[d] while they (were) disbelievers, those, on them (is the) curse (of) Allah, and the Angels, and the mankind, all together.
2:162 (Will) abide forever in it. Not will be lightened for them the punishment and not they will be reprieved.
2:163 And your God (is) God one (only); (there is) no god except Him, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
2:164 Indeed, in (the) creation (of) the heavens and the earth, and alternation of the night and the day, and the ships which sail in the sea with what benefits [the] people, and what (has) sent down Allah from the sky [of] water, giving life thereby (to) the earth after its death, and dispersing therein [of] every moving creature, and directing (of) the winds and the clouds [the] controlled between the sky and the earth, surely (are) Signs for a people who use their intellect.
2:165 And among the mankind who takes from besides Allah equals. They love them as (they should) love Allah. And those who believe[d] (are) stronger (in) love for Allah. And if would see those who wronged, when they will see the punishment that the power (belongs) to Allah all and [that] Allah (is) severe (in) [the] punishment.
2:166 When will disown those who were followed [from] those who followed and they will see the punishment, [and] will be cut off for them the relations.
2:167 And said those who followed, "(Only) if [that] for us a return, then we will disown [from] them as they disown [from] us." Thus will show them Allah their deeds (as) regrets for them. And not they will come out from the Fire.
2:168 O mankind! Eat of what (is) in the earth lawful (and) good. And (do) not follow (the) footsteps (of) the Shaitaan. Indeed, he (is) to you an enemy clear.
2:169 Only he commands you to (do) the evil and the shameful and that you say about Allah what not you know.
2:170 And when it is said to them, "Follow what has revealed Allah," they said, "Nay we follow what we found [on it] our forefathers (following)". Even though [were] their forefathers (did) not understand anything and not were they guided?
2:171 And (the) example (of) those who disbelieve[d] (is) like (the) example (of) the one who shouts at what not (does) hear except calls and cries - deaf dumb, (and) blind, [so] they (do) not understand.
2:172 O you who believe[d]! Eat from (the) good (of) what We have provided you and be grateful to Allah if you alone worship Him.
2:173 Only He has forbidden to you the dead animals, and [the] blood, and flesh, (of) swine, and what has been dedicated [with it] to other than Allah. So whoever (is) forced by necessity without (being) disobedient and not transgressor, then no sin on him. Indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2:174 Indeed, those who conceal what (has) revealed Allah (has) of the Book, and they purchase there with a gain little. Those, not they eat in their bellies except the Fire. And not will speak to them Allah (on the) Day (of) [the] Judgment and not will He purify them, and for them (is) a punishment painful.
2:175 Those (are) they who purchase[d] [the] astraying for [the] Guidance, and [the] punishment for [the] forgiveness. So what (is) their endurance on the Fire!
2:176 That (is) because Allah revealed the Book with [the] Truth. And indeed, those who differed in the Book (are) surely in schism far.
2:177 It is not [the] righteousness that you turn your faces towards the east and the west, [and] but the righteous[ness] (is he) who believes in Allah and the Day [the] Last, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Prophets, and gives the wealth in spite of his love (for it) (to) those the near relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and (of) the wayfarer, and those who ask, and in freeing the necks (slaves) and (who) establish the prayer, and give the zakah, and those who fulfill their covenant when they make it; and those who are patient in [the] suffering and [the] hardship, and (the) time (of) [the] stress. Those (are) the ones who are true and those, [they] (are) the righteous.
2:178 O you who believe[d]! Prescribed for you (is) the legal retribution in (the matter of) the murdered, the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. But whoever is pardoned [for it] from his brother anything, then follows up with suitable [and] payment to him with kindness. That (is) a concession from your Lord and mercy. Then whoever transgresses after that, then for him (is) a punishment painful.
2:179 And for you in the legal retribution (is) life, O men (of) understanding! So that you may (become) righteous.
2:180 Prescribed for you when approaches any of you [the] death, if he leaves good (making) the will for the parents and the near relatives with due fairness a duty on the righteous ones.
2:181 Then whoever changes it after what he (has) heard [it], so only its sin (would be) on those who alter it. Indeed, Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
2:182 But whoever fears from (the) testator (any) error or sin, then reconciles between them, then (there is) no sin on him. Indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, All-Merciful.
2:183 O you who believe[d]! Is prescribed for you [the] fasting as was prescribed to those from before you, so that you may (become) righteous.
2:184 (Fasting for) days numbered. So whoever is among you sick or on a journey, then a prescribed number of days other. And on those who can afford it, a ransom (of) feeding a poor. And whoever volunteers good then it (is) better for him. And to fast (is) better for you, if you know.
2:185 Month (of) Ramadhaan (is) that was revealed therein the Quran, a Guidance for mankind and clear proofs of [the] Guidance and the Criterion. So whoever witnesses among you the month, then he should fast in it, and whoever is sick or on a journey then prescribed number (should from days other. Intends Allah for you [the] ease and not intends for you [the] hardship, so that you complete the prescribed period and that you magnify Allah for [what] He guided you so that you may (be) grateful.
2:186 And when ask you My servants about Me, then indeed I am near. I respond (to the) invocation (of) the supplicant when he calls Me. So let them respond to Me and let them believe in Me, so that they may (be) led aright.
2:187 Permitted for you (in the) nights (of) fasting (is) the approach to your wives. They (are) garments for you and you (are) garments for them. Knows Allah that you used to deceive yourselves, so He turned towards you and He forgave [on] you. So now have relations with them and seek what has ordained Allah for you. And eat and drink until becomes distinct to you the thread [the] white from the thread [the] black of [the] dawn. Then complete the fast till the night. And (do) not have relations with them while you (are) secluded in the masajid. These (are the) limits (set by) Allah, so (do) not approach them. Thus makes clear Allah His verses for [the] people so that they may (become) righteous.
2:188 And (do) not eat your properties among yourselves wrongfully and present [with] it to the authorities so that you may eat a portion from (the) wealth (of) the people sinfully while you know.
2:189 They ask you about the new moons. Say, "They (are) indicators of periods for the people, and (for) the Hajj." And it is not [the] righteousness that you come (to) the houses from their backs, [and] but [the] righteous (is one) who fears (Allah). And come (to) the houses from their doors. And fear Allah so that you may (be) successful.
2:190 And fight in (the) way (of) Allah those who fight you and (do) not transgress. Indeed, Allah (does) not like the transgressors.
2:191 And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out, and [the] oppression (is) worse than [the] killing. And (do) not fight them near Al-Masjid Al-Haraam until they fight you in it. Then if they fight you, then kill them. Such (is the) reward (of) the disbelievers.
2:192 Then if they cease, then indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2:193 And fight (against) them until not (there) is oppression, and becomes the religion for Allah Then if they cease then (let there be) no hostility except against the oppressors.
2:194 The month [the] sacred (is) for the month [the] sacred, and for all the violations (is) legal retribution. Then whoever transgressed upon you then you transgress on him in (the) same manner (as) he transgressed upon you. And fear Allah and know that Allah (is) with those who fear (Him).
2:195 And spend in (the) way (of) Allah and (do) not throw (ourselves) [with your hands] into [the] destruction. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the good-doers.
2:196 And complete the Hajj and the Umrah for Allah. And if you are held back then (offer) whatever (can be) obtained with ease of the sacrificial animal. And (do) not shave your heads until reaches the sacrificial animal (to) its destination. Then whoever is among you ill or he (has) an ailment of his head then a ransom of fasting or charity or sacrifice. Then when you are secure then whoever took advantage of the Umrah followed (by) the Hajj, then (offer) whatever (can be) obtained with ease of the sacrificial animal. But whoever (can) not find - then a fast (of) three days during the Hajj and seven (days) when you return. This (is) ten (days) in all. That (is) for (the one) whose, not is his family present (near) Al-Masjid Al-Haraam. And fear Allah and know that Allah (is) severe (in) retribution.
2:197 (For) the Hajj (are) months well known, then whoever undertakes therein the Hajj then no sexual relations and no wickedness and no quarrelling during the Hajj. And whatever you do of good knows it Allah. And take provision, (but) indeed, (the) best provision (is) righteousness. And fear Me, O men (of) understanding!
2:198 Not is on you any sin that you seek bounty from your Lord. And when you depart from (Mount) Arafat then remember Allah near the Monument [the] Sacred. And remember Him as He (has) guided you, [and] though you were [from] before [it], surely among those who went astray.
2:199 Then depart from wherever depart the people and ask forgiveness (of) Allah. Indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2:200 Then when you complete[d] your acts of worship then remember Allah as you remember your forefathers or (with) greater remembrance. And from the people who say, "Our Lord! Grant us in the world." And not for him in the Hereafter [of] any share.
2:201 And from those who say, "Our Lord! Grant us in the world good and in the Hereafter good, and save us (from the) punishment (of) the Fire."
2:202 Those - for them (is) a share of what they earned, and Allah (is) swift (in taking) account.
2:203 And remember Allah during days numbered. Then (he) who hurries in two days then no sin upon him, and whoever delays then no sin upon him for (the one) who fears. And fear Allah and know that you unto Him will be gathered.
2:204 And of the people (is the one) who pleases you (with) his speech in the life (of) the world, and he calls to witness Allah on what (is) in his heart, and he (is) the most quarrelsome (of) opponents.
2:205 And when he turns away he strives in the earth to spread corruption [in it], and destroys the crops and progeny. And Allah (does) not love [the] corruption.
2:206 And when it is said to him "Fear Allah," takes him (his) pride to [the] sins. Then enough for him (is) Hell - [and] surely an evil [the] resting-place.
2:207 And of the people (is the one) who sells his own self seeking pleasure (of) Allah. And Allah (is) full of Kindness to His servants.
2:208 O you who believe[d]! Enter in Islam completely, and (do) not follow footsteps (of) the Shaitaan. Indeed, he (is) for you an enemy open.
2:209 Then if you slip from after [what] came to you (from) the clear proofs, then know that Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise.
2:210 Are they waiting [except] that comes to them Allah in (the) shadows of [the] clouds, and the Angels, and is decreed the matter? And to Allah return (all) the matters.
2:211 Ask (the) Children (of) Israel, how many We gave them of (the) Sign(s) clear. And whoever changes Favor (of) Allah from after [what] it (has) come to him - then indeed, Allah (is) severe in [the] chastising.
2:212 Beautified for those who disbelieve[d] (is) the life (of) the world, and they ridicule [of] those who believe[d]. And those who fear (Allah), (they will be) above them (on the) Day (of) Resurrection. And Allah provides whom He wills without measure.
2:213 Was mankind a community single, then raised up Allah [the] Prophets (as) bearers of glad tidings and (as) warners, and sent down with them the Book in [the] truth to judge between [the] people in what they differed [in it]. And (did) not differ[ed] in it except those who were given it from after [what] came to them the clear proofs, (out of) jealousy among themselves. And guided Allah those who believe[d] regarding what they differed [in it] of the Truth with His permission. And Allah guides whom He wills to a path straight.
2:214 Or (do) you think that you will enter Paradise while not (has) come to you like (came to) those who passed away from before you? Touched them [the] adversity and [the] hardship, and they were shaken until said the Messenger and those who believed with him, "When [will] (the) help (of) Allah (come) Unquestionably, [Indeed] help (of) Allah (is) near.
2:215 They ask you what they (should) spend. Say, "Whatever you spend of good, (is) for parents, and the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and (of) the wayfarer. And whatever you do of good. So indeed, Allah of it (is) All-Aware.
2:216 Is prescribed upon you [the] fighting while it (is) hateful to you. But perhaps [that] you dislike a thing and it (is) good for you; and perhaps [that] you love a thing and it (is) bad for you. And Allah knows while you (do) not know.
2:217 They ask you about the month [the] sacred - (concerning) fighting in it. Say, "Fighting therein (is) a great (sin); but hindering (people) from (the) way (of) Allah, and disbelief in Him and (preventing access to) Al- Al-Haraam, and driving out its people from it, (is) greater (sin) near Allah. And [the] oppression (is) greater than [the] killing." And not they will cease (to) fight with you until they turn you away from your religion, if they are able. And whoever turns away among you from his religion, then dies while he (is) a disbeliever for those became worthless their deeds in the world and the Hereafter. And those (are) companions (of) the Fire, they in it (will) abide forever.
2:218 Indeed, those who believed and those who emigrated and strove in (the) way (of) Allah - those, they hope (for) Mercy (of) Allah. And Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2:219 They ask you about [the] intoxicants and [the] games of chance Say, "In both of them (is) a sin great, and (some) benefits for [the] people. But sin of both of them (is) greater than (the) benefit of (the) two." And they ask you what they (should) spend. Say, "The surplus." Thus makes clear Allah to you [the] Verses so that you may ponder,
2:220 Concerning the world and the Hereafter. They ask you about the orphans. Say, "Setting right (their affairs) for them (is) best. And if you associate with them then they (are) your brothers. And Allah knows the corrupter from the amender. And if (had) willed Allah surely He (could have) put you Indeed, Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise."
2:221 And (do) not [you] marry [the] polytheistic women until they believe. And a bondwoman (who is) believing (is) better than a polytheistic woman [and] even if she pleases you. And (do) not give in marriage (your women) (to) [the] polytheistic men until they believe, and a bondman (who is) believing (is) better than a polytheistic man [and] even if he pleases you. [Those] they invite to the Fire, and Allah invites to Paradise and [the] forgiveness by His permission. And He makes clear His Verses for the people so that they may take heed.
2:222 And they ask you about [the] menstruation. Say, "It (is) a hurt, so keep away (from) [the] women during (their) [the] menstruation. And (do) not approach them until they are cleansed Then when they are purified, then come to them from where has ordered you Allah." Indeed, Allah loves those who turn in repentance and loves those who purify themselves.
2:223 Your wives (are) a tilth for you, so come (to) your tilth when you wish, and send forth (good deeds) for yourselves. And be conscious (of) Allah and know that you (will) meet Him. And give glad tidings (to) the believers.
2:224 And (do) not make Allah's (name) an excuse in your oaths that you do good, and be righteous and make peace between [the] people. And Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
2:225 Not will take you to task Allah for (what is) unintentional in your oaths, [and] but He takes you to task for what (have) earned your hearts. And Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing.
2:226 For those who swear (off) from their wives (is a) waiting (of) four months, then if they return - then indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2:227 And if they resolve (on) [the] divorce - then indeed, Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
2:228 And the women who are divorced shall wait concerning themselves (for) three monthly periods. And (it is) not lawful for them that they conceal what (has been) created (by) Allah in their wombs, if they believe in Allah and the Day [the] Last. And their husbands (have) better right to take them back in that (period) if they wish (for) reconciliation. And for them (is the) like (of) that which (is) on them in a reasonable manner, and for the men over them (is) a degree. And Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise.
2:229 The divorce (is) twice. Then to retain in a reasonable manner or to release (her) with kindness. And (it is) not lawful for you that you take (back) whatever you have given them anything, except if both fear that not they both (can) keep (the) limits (of) Allah. But if you fear that not they both (can) keep (the) limits (of) Allah then (there is) no sin on both of them in what she ransoms concerning it. These (are the) limits (of) Allah, so (do) not transgress them. And whoever transgresses (the) limits (of) Allah then those - they (are) the wrongdoers.
2:230 Then if he divorces her, then (she is) not lawful for him from after (that) until she marries a spouse other than him. Then if he divorces her then no sin on them if they return to each other if they believe that they (will be able to) keep (the) limits. (of) Allah. And these (are the) limits. (of) Allah. He makes them clear to a people who know.
2:231 And when you divorce the women and they reach their (waiting) term, then retain them in a fair manner or release them in a fair manner. And (do) not retain them (to) hurt so that you transgress. And whoever does that, then indeed, he wronged himself. And (do) not take (the) Verses (of) Allah (in) jest, and remember (the) Favors (of) Allah upon you and what (is) revealed to you of the Book and [the] wisdom; He instructs you with it. And fear Allah and know that Allah (is) of every thing All-Knower.
2:232 And when you divorce [the] women and they reached their (waiting) term, then (do) not hinder them [that] (from) marrying their husbands when they agree between themselves in a fair manner. That is admonished with it whoever [is] among you believes in Allah and the Day [the] Last; that (is) more virtuous for you and more purer. And Allah knows and you (do) not know.
2:233 And the mothers shall suckle their children (for) two years complete, for whoever wishes to complete the suckling. And upon the father (on) him (is) their provision and their clothing in a fair manner. Not is burdened any soul except its capacity. Not made to suffer (the) mother because of her child and not (the) father (be) because of his child. And on the heirs (is a duty) like that. Then if they both desire weaning through mutual consent of both of them and consultation, then no blame on both of them. And if you want to ask another women to suckle your child then (there is) no blame on you, when you pay what you give in a fair manner. And fear Allah and know that Allah of what you do (is) All-Seer.
2:234 And those who pass away among you and leave behind wives, (the widows) should wait for themselves (for) four months and ten (days). Then when they reach their (specified) term, then (there is) no blame upon you for what they do concerning themselves in a fair manner. And Allah of what you do (is) All-Aware.
2:235 And (there is) no blame upon you in what you hint [with it] of marriage proposal [to] the women or you conceal it in yourselves. Knows Allah that you will mention them, [and] but (do) not promise them (widows) secretly except that you say a saying honorable. And (do) not resolve (on) the knot (of) marriage until reaches the prescribed term its end. And know that Allah knows what (is) within yourselves so beware of Him. And know that Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing.
2:236 (There is) no blame upon you if you divorce [the] women whom not you have touched nor you specified for them an obligation (dower). And make provision for them - upon the wealthy according to his means and upon the poor according to his means - a provision in a fair manner, a duty upon the good-doers.
2:237 And if you divorce them from before [that] you (have) touched them while already you have specified for them an obligation (dower), then (give) half (of) what you have specified, unless [that] they (women) forgo (it) or forgoes the one in whose hands (is the) knot (of) the marriage. And that you forgo, (is) nearer to [the] righteousness. And (do) not forget the graciousness among you. Indeed, Allah of what you do (is) All-Seer.
2:238 Guard strictly [on] the prayers, and the prayer - [the] middle, and stand up for Allah devoutly obedient.
2:239 And if you fear then (pray) on foot or riding. Then when you are secure then remember Allah as He (has) taught you what not you were knowing.
2:240 And those who die among you and leave behind (their) wives (should make) a will for their wives, provision for the year without driving (them) out. But if they leave then no blame upon you in what they do concerning themselves [of] honorably. And Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise.
2:241 And for the divorced women, (is) a provision in a fair manner - a duty upon the righteous.
2:242 Thus makes clear Allah for you His Verses so that you may use your intellect.
2:243 Did not you see [to] those who went out from their homes and they (were in) thousands (in) fear (of) [the] death? Then said to them Allah, "Die;" then He restored them to life. Indeed, Allah (is) surely Possessor (of) bounty for [the] mankind [and] but most (of) the people (are) not grateful.
2:244 And fight in (the) way (of) Allah, and know that Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
2:245 Who (is) the one who will lend (to) Allah - a loan good, so (that) He multiplies it for him - manifolds many And Allah withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.
2:246 Did not you see [towards] the chiefs of (the) Children (of) Israel from after Musa, when they said to a Prophet of theirs, "Appoint for us a king, we may fight in (the) way (of) Allah?" He said, "Would you perhaps - if prescribed upon you [the] fighting, that not you fight?" They said, "And what for us that not we fight in (the) way (of) Allah while surely we have been driven from our homes and our children?" Yet, when was prescribed upon them the fighting they turned away, except a few among them. And Allah (is) All-Knowing of the wrongdoers.
2:247 And said to them their Prophet, "Indeed, Allah (has) surely raised for you Talut (as) a king." They said, How can be for him the kingship over us, while we (are) more entitled to kingship than him, and not he has been given abundance of [the] wealth?" He said, "Indeed, Allah has chosen him over you and increased him abundantly in [the] knowledge and [the] physique. And Allah gives His kingdom (to) whom He wills. And Allah (is) All-Encompassing, All-Knowing."
2:248 And said to them their Prophet, "Indeed, a sign (of) his kingship (is) that will come to you the ark, in it (is) tranquility from your Lord, and a remnant of what (was) left (by the) family (of) Musa and family (of) Harun will carry it the Angels. Indeed, in that (is) surely a sign for you if you are believers."
2:249 Then when set out Talut with the forces he said, "Indeed, Allah will test you with a river. So whoever drinks from it then he is not from me, and whoever (does) not taste it then indeed, he (is) from me except whoever takes (in the) hollow (of) his hand." Then they drank from it except a few of them. Then when he crossed it, he and those who believed with him, they said, "No strength for us today against Jalut and his troops." Said those who were certain that they (would) meet Allah, "How many of a company small overcame a company large by (the) permission (of) Allah. And Allah (is) with the patient ones."
2:250 And when they went forth to (face) Jalut and his troops they said, "Our Lord! Pour on us patience and make firm our feet, and help us against the people (who are) disbelieving."
2:251 So they defeated them by (the) permission (of) Allah, and killed Dawood Jalut, and gave him Allah the kingdom and the wisdom and taught him that which He willed. And if not (for the) repelling (by) Allah, [the] people - some of them with others, certainly (would have) corrupt the Earth, [and] but Allah (is) Possessor (of) bounty to the worlds.
2:252 These (are the) Verses (of) Allah, We recite them to you in [the] truth. And indeed, you (are) surely of the Messengers.
2:253 These (are) the Messengers We (have) preferred some of them over others. Among them (were those with) whom spoke Allah, and He raised some of them (in) degrees. And We gave Isa, son (of) Maryam, the clear proofs and We supported him with Spirit [the] Holy. And if (had) willed Allah not (would have) fought each other those who (came) from after them, from after [what] came to them the clear proofs. [And] but they differed, [so] of them (are some) who believed and of them (are some) who denied. And if (had) willed Allah not they (would have) fought each [and] but Allah does what He intends.
2:254 O you who believe[d]! Spend of what We (have) provided you, from before that comes a Day no bargaining in it and no friendship and no intercession. And the deniers - they (are) the wrongdoers.
2:255 Allah - (there is) no God except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of all that exis Not overtakes Him slumber [and] not sleep. To Him (belongs) what(ever) (is) in the heavens and what(ever) (is) in the earth. Who (is) the one who can intercede with Him except by His permission. He knows what between hands (before them) and what (is) behind them. And not they encompass anything of His Knowledge except [of] what He willed. Extends His Throne (to) the heavens and the earth. And not tires Him (the) guarding of both of them And He (is) the Most High, the Most Great.
2:256 (There is) no compulsion in the religion. Surely has become distinct the right (path) from the wrong. Then whoever disbelieves in false deities and believes in Allah, then surely he grasped the handhold - [the] firm, (which) not (will) break [for it]. And Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
2:257 Allah (is the) Protecting Guardian (of) those who believe[d]. He brings them out from [the] darkness towards [the] light. And those who disbelieve(d) their guardians (are) the evil ones, they bring them out from the light towards [the] darkness. Those (are the) companions (of) the Fire, they in it will abide forever.
2:258 Did not you see [towards] the one who argued (with) Ibrahim concerning his Lord, because gave him Allah the kingdom? When Said Ibrahim, "My Lord (is) the One Who grants life and causes death." He said, "I give life and cause death." Said Ibrahim, "[Then] indeed Allah brings up the sun from the east, so you bring it from the west." So became dumbfounded the one who disbelieved, and Allah (does) not guide the people (who are) [the] wrongdoers.
2:259 Or like the one who passed by a township, and it (had) overturned on its roofs. He said, "How (will) bring to life this (town) Allah after its death?" Then he was made to die (by) Allah (for) a hundred year(s), then He raised him. He said, "How long (have) you remained?" He said, "I remained (for) a day or a part (of) a day." He said, "Nay, you (have) remained one hundred year(s). Then look at your food and your drink, (they did) not change with time, and look at your donkey, and We will make you a sign for the people. And look at the bones how We raise them, then We cover them (with) flesh." Then when became clear to him, he said, "I know that Allah (is) on every thing All-Powerful."
2:260 And when said Ibrahim, "My Lord show me how You give life (to) the dead." He said, "Have not you believed?" He said, "Yes [and] but to satisfy my heart." He said "Then take four of the birds and incline them towards you, then put on each hill of them a portion; then call them, they will come to you (in) haste. And know that Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise.
2:261 Example (of) those who spend their wealth in (the) way (of) Allah, (is) like a grain which grows seven ears, in each ear hundred grain(s). And Allah gives manifold to whom He wills. And Allah (is) All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.
2:262 Those who spend their wealth in (the) way (of) Allah then not they follow what they spend (with) reminders of generosity and not hurt - for them their reward (is) with their Lord, and (there will be) no fear on them and not they will grieve.
2:263 A word kind and (seeking) forgiveness (are) better than a charity followed [it] (by) hurt. And Allah (is) All-Sufficient, All-Forbearing.
2:264 O you who believe[d]! (Do) not render in vain your charities with reminders (of it) or [the] hurt, like the one who spends his wealth (to) be seen (by) the people, and (does) not believe in Allah and the Day [the] Last. Then his example (is) like (that of a) smooth rock upon it (is) dust, then fell on it heavy rain, then left it bare. Not they have control on anything of what they (have) earned. And Allah (does) not guide the people [the] disbelieving.
2:265 And (the) example (of) those who spend their wealth seeking (the) pleasure (of) Allah, and certainty from their (inner) souls, (is) like a garden on a height, fell on it heavy rain so it yielded its harvest double. Then if (does) not fall (on) it heavy rain, then a drizzle. And Allah of what you do (is) All-Seer.
2:266 Would like any of you that it be for him a garden, of date-palms and grapevines flowing [from] underneath it the rivers, for him in it of all (kinds) (of) [the] fruits, and strikes him [the] old age and [for] his children (are) weak then falls on it whirlwind, in it (is) fire then it is burnt. Thus makes clear Allah for you (His) Signs so that you may ponder.
2:267 O you who believe[d]! Spend from (the) good things that you have earned and whatever We brought forth for you from the earth. And (do) not aim (at) the bad of it, you spend, while you (would) not take it except [that] (with) close(d) eyes [in it], and know that Allah (is) Self-Sufficient, Praiseworthy.
2:268 The Shaitaan promises you [the] poverty and orders you to immorality, while Allah promises you forgiveness from Him and bounty. And Allah (is) All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.
2:269 He grants [the] wisdom (to) whom He wills, and whoever is granted [the] wisdom, then certainly he is granted good abundant. And none remembers except those (of) understanding.
2:270 And whatever you spend (out) of (your) expenditures or you vow of vow(s), then indeed, Allah knows it, and not for the wrongdoers any helpers.
2:271 If you disclose the charities then good it (is). But if you keep it secret and give it (to) the poor, then it (is) better for you. And He will remove from you [of] your evil deeds. And Allah with what you do (is) All-Aware.
2:272 Not on you (is) their guidance [and] but Allah guides whom He wills. And whatever you spend of good then it is for yourself, and not you spend except seeking (the) face (of) Allah. And whatever you spend of good, will be repaid in full to you and you (will) not be wronged.
2:273 For the poor, those who are wrapped up in (the) way (of) Allah, not they are able (to) move about in the earth. Think (about) them, the ignorant one, (that they are) self-sufficien (because) of (their) restraint, you recognize them by their mark. Not (do) they ask the people with importunity. And whatever you spend of good, then indeed, Allah of it (is) All-Knower.
2:274 Those who spend their wealth by night and day secretly and openly, then for them (is) their reward with their Lord, and no fear on them and not they will grieve.
2:275 Those who consume [the] usury not they can stand except like stands the one who, confounds him the Shaitaan with (his) touch. That (is) because they say, "Only the trade (is) like [the] usury." While has permitted Allah [the] trade but (has) forbidden [the] usury. Then whoever - comes to him (the) admonition from His Lord and he refrained, then for him what (has) passed, and his case (is) with Allah, and whoever repeated then those (are the) companions (of) the Fire, they in it will abide forever.
2:276 Destroys Allah the usury and (gives) increase (for) the charities. And Allah (does) not love every ungrateful sinner.
2:277 Indeed, those who believe[d] and did good deeds and established the prayer and gave the zakah for them - their reward (is) with their Lord, and no fear on them and not they will grieve.
2:278 O you who believe[d]! Fear Allah and give up what remained of [the] usury, if you are believers.
2:279 And if not you do, then be informed of a war from Allah and His Messenger. And if you repent then for you (is) your capital - (do) not wrong and not you will be wronged.
2:280 And if is the (debtor) in difficulty, then postponement until ease. And if you remit as charity (it is) better for you. If you know.
2:281 And fear a Day you will be brought back [in it] to Allah. Then (will be) repaid in full every soul what it earned and they not will be wronged.
2:282 O you who believe[d]! When you contract with one another any debt for a term fixed then write it. And let write between you a scribe in justice. And not (should) refuse a scribe that he writes as (has) taught him Allah. So let him write and let dictate the one on whom (is) the right and let him fear Allah, his Lord, and (let him) not diminish from it anything. Then if is the one on him (is) the right, (of) limited understanding, or weak, or not capable that (can) dictate he, then let dictate his guardian with justice. And call for evidence two witnesses among your men. And if not there are two men then one man and two women of whom you agree of [the] witnesses, (so) that (if) [she] errs, one of the two, then will remind one of the two the other. And not (should) refuse the witnesses when that they are called. And not (be) weary that you write it - small or large for its term. That (is) more just near Allah, and more upright for evidence and nearer that not you (have) doubt, except that be a transaction present, you carry out among you, then not on you any sin that not you write it. And take witness when you make commercial transactio And not (should) be harmed (the) scribe and not (the) witness, and if you do, then indeed it (is) sinful conduct for you, and fear Allah. And teaches Allah. And Allah of every thing (is) All-Knower.
2:283 And if you are on a journey and not you find a scribe, then pledge in hand. Then if entrusts one of you (to) another then let discharge the one who is entrusted his trust. And let him fear Allah, his Lord. And (do) not conceal the evidence. And whoever conceals it, then indeed he (is) sinful - his heart. And Allah of what you do (is) All-Knower.
2:284 To Allah (belongs) whatever (is) in the heavens and whatever (is) in the earth. And if you disclose what (is) in yourselves or you conceal it, will call you to account for it Allah. Then, He will forgive [to] whom He wills, and He will punish whom He wills. And Allah on every thing (is) All-Powerful.
2:285 Believed the Messenger in what was revealed to him from his Lord and the believers. All believed in Allah, and His Angels, and His Books, and His Messengers. "Not we make distinction between any of His Messengers. And they said, "We heard and we obeyed. (Grant) us Your forgiveness our Lord, and to You (is) the return."
2:286 (Does) not burden Allah any soul except its capacity, for it what it earned, and against it what it earned. "Our Lord! (Do) not take us to task if we forget or we err. Our Lord! And (do) not lay upon us a burden like that (which) You laid [it] on those who (were) from before us. Our Lord! [And] (do) not lay on us what not (the) strength we have [of it] (to bear). And pardon [from] us, and forgive [for] us and have mercy on us. You (are) our Protector, so help us against the people - [the] disbelievers.
