Abdul Hye rendition of Surah Women(an-Nisa`)
4:1 O mankind! Fear your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam), created from him his mate (Eve), and spread from both of them many men and women. Fear Allah through Whom you demand (your rights), and (don’t cut relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allah is All-Watcher over you.
4:2 And give orphans their wealth (when they are able to handle), don’t exchange your bad things for their good ones, and don’t devour their wealth by adding it to your wealth. Surely, this is a great sin.
4:3 And if you fear that you shall not be able to do justice with the orphans, then marry women (without orphan child) of your choice: 2, 3, or 4. But if you fear that you will not be able to do justice (between wives), then marry only one or what your right hands possess (your captives). That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice.
4:4 And give women (whom you marry) their dower (as obligation) willingly. But if they willingly give up to you any part of it on their own, then you may enjoy it without fear of any harm.
4:5 And don’t give your wealth (for business) to foolish people which Allah has made a means of support for you (your family); but feed them from it, clothe them, and speak to them with good words.
4:6 And test the orphans (their abilities) until they reach the age of marriage. Then if you perceive them mature minded, then deliver to them their wealth. You don’t eat it wastefully and hastily (fearing) that they would grow up (and demand it). Whoever (amongst guardians) is rich, should abstain entirely (from taking wages for taking care of their wealth), and whoever is poor, let him take what is just and reasonable. When you deliver their wealth to them, take witness in their presence. Allah is All-Sufficient in taking account.
4:7 There is a share for men from what is left by parents and near relatives and a share for women from what is left by parents and near relatives: whether the property is small or large, a legal share.
4:8 And if the relatives, orphans, and the poor come (at the time of) division of an inheritance, then give them something out of it, and speak to them kind words.
4:9 And let those (executors and guardians) have the same fear in their minds as they would have for their own if they were to leave weak offspring behind. So fear Allah and speak right and fair words.
4:10 Surely, those who eat up (misuse) wealth of orphans wrongfully, they eat up only fire in their bellies, and they will soon be burnt in the blazing fire.
4:11 Allah commands you regarding your children (inheritance): share of one male (son) shall be equal to share of 2 females (daughters). If there are more than 2 daughters, then for them is 2/3rd of what was left (inheritance); and if there is only one daughter, then her share is ½. For parents, each one of them will get 1/6th of what was left if the deceased left children behind, and if the deceased left no children and the parents are only heirs, then the mother shall get 1/3rd and if the deceased left brothers or (sisters), then the mother will get 1/6th. (This distribution in all cases shall be) after fulfilling the terms of the (last) will and the payment of debts. With respect to parents and children, you don’t know who is more beneficial to you; therefore Allah has issued this ordnance. Indeed Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise
4:12 For you is ½ of what left of your wives if they did not leave a child. If they had a child, then for you a 1/4th of what they left after fulfilling the term of their (last) will and the payment of debt. For your wives a 1/4th of what you have left if you did not leave a child. If you leave a child, then for them is 1/8th of what you have left behind, after fulfilling the terms of your (last) will and the payment of debt. If man or woman is testator having no parents and children or women but has a brother or a sister, then for each one of the 2 is a 1/6th. But if they are more than 2, then they shall share in a 1/3rd after fulfilling the terms of the (last) will and the payment of debt, without being harmful (no loss to anyone). This is the commandment from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, Forbearing.
4:13 These are limits (set by) Allah and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), will be admitted to gardens under them the rivers flow (Paradise) to abide therein, and that will be the great success
4:14 And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and transgresses His limits, He will admit them to fire, they will abide in it forever; and they will have a disgraceful punishment.
4:15 And those of your women who commit lewdness (illegal sexual intercourse), call to witness against them 4 of you; and if they bear witness, then confine them (i.e. women) in their houses until the death comes to them or Allah makes for them a way.
4:16 And those 2 (man and woman) who commit (illegal sexual intercourse) among you (married or unmarried), punish them both. And if they repent and mend their ways (do good deeds), then leave them alone. Surely, Allah is Acceptor of the repentance, Merciful.
4:17 Surely, (acceptance of) repentance by Allah is for those who do evil in ignorance, then they repent soon; and for those Allah accepts their repentance. Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.
4:18 And the repentance is not for those who do evil deeds until when one of them faces death and says: “Surely I repent now;” or those who die while they are disbelievers. We have prepared for them a painful punishment.
4:19 O you who believe! It is not lawful for you to inherit women by force and you don’t put constrains upon them, that you take away a part of (dowry) you have given them, unless they commit open lewdness (illegal sexual intercourse), and live with them honorably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah has placed in it much good.
4:20 But if you intend to replace your wife by another and you have given one of them a heap of gold (as dowry), don’t take away anything from her. Would you take it by slander and with clear sin (accuse her unjustly)?
4:21 And how you could take it back when one of you has gone in to another (with happiness), and they have taken from you a firm pledge (of marriage)?
4:22 And don’t marry woman whom your fathers married, except what has happened before. Indeed it was lewdness and admonition, and an evil way.
4:23 Forbidden to you (for marriage) are: your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father’s sisters, your mother’s sisters, your brother’s daughters, your sister’s daughters, your (foster) mothers who gave you suck, your (foster) milk suckling sisters, your wife’s mothers, your step daughters who are under your guardianship; born from your wives you had conjugal relations with them, but if you did not have conjugal relations with them then there is no sin on you (to marry their daughters), the wives of your sons who are from your own side, and 2 sisters in wedlock at the same time, except what happened before. Surely, Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
4:24 (Also forbidden are) married women, except those (captives) whom your right hands possess. This is a decree of Allah upon you. Allah has made lawful for you those who are beyond these limits that you seek (them in marriage) by your wealth (with bridal gift) desiring chastity, not sin (commit illegal sexual intercourse). You benefit from them (enjoy sexual relations), give them their bridal-due as a duty; and there is no sin on you for what you mutually agree after its prescription. Surely, Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.
4:25 And whoever of you is not able to afford that he marries free believing women, (they may wed) believing girls from among those (captives) whom your right hands possess, and Allah knows all about your faith, you are one from another. Then marry them with permission of their guardians and give them their bridal-due in a fair manner; they (the above said captive girls) should be chaste (in wedlock), not adulterous, nor give secret love affairs. When they are married, if they commit lewdness (illegal sexual intercourse), then upon them (punishment is) ½ of what is upon the free (unmarried) women. This is for those who fear (falling into) sin but it is better for you that you practice self-restraint. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
4:26 Allah wishes to make clear to you, and guide you to ways of those who were before you, and to accept repentance of you, and Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.
4:27 Allah wishes to accept your repentance, wishes those who follow their lusts that you (believers) should deviate far away (from the Right Way)
4:28 Allah wishes to lighten (burden) for you; and human was created weak (by nature).
4:29 O you who believe! Don’t eat up your wealth between you unjustly except that it is trading by mutual consent among you. You don’t kill yourselves. Surely, Allah is Merciful to you.
4:30 And whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, We shall burn him in fire, and that is easy for Allah.
4:31 If you avoid major sins that you are forbidden to do, We shall forgive your (minor) sins, and admit you to a noble entrance (Paradise).
4:32 And don’t envy what Allah has conferred abundantly to some of you over (others). For men there is reward for what they earned, (and likewise) for women there is reward for what they earned. Ask Allah of His Bounty. Surely, Allah is All-Knower of everything.
4:33 And to everyone, We have appointed heirs of that (wealth) left by parents and relatives. To those with whom your right hands made covenant, give them their (by wills) due share. Truly, Allah is a Witness over everything.
4:34 Men are the protectors and maintainers of women because Allah has conferred abundantly one of them over others, and because they spend (to support) from their wealth. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands) who guard in husband’s absence what Allah has ordered them to guard (their chastity, their husband’s property). But those women whom you fear their rebellion, admonish them (first), and (then) leave them (alone) in the beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), then if they obey you, then don’t seek against them a way (excuse to punish). Surely, Allah is High, Great.
4:35 If you fear a breach between the 2 (man and his wife), then appoint an arbitrator from his family and an arbitrator from her family; if they both wish to set things right, Allah will bring reconciliation between them. Indeed Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of every thing).
4:36 Worship Allah and don’t associate with Him anything (in worship), and do good to parents, relatives, orphans, the needy, the neighbor (who is) relative, the neighbor (who is) a stranger, to the companion by your side, the wayfarer (you meet), and those captives possessed by your right hands. Surely, Allah does not love one who is proud and boastful
4:37 those who are stingy and command others with stinginess and who hide the bounties which Allah has given them. And We have prepared for the disbelievers a disgraceful punishment.
4:38 And (also) those who spend their wealth to be seen by people, and don’t believe in Allah and the Last Day, and those who take Satan as a companion; then what a bad companion (they have)!
4:39 And what loss they would have if they had believed in Allah and the Last Day, and spend out what Allah has given them for sustenance? Allah is All-Knower of them.
4:40 Surely! Allah does not do wrong (not even) weight of an atom. If there is a good (done), He doubles it, and gives (extra) with a great reward from Him.
4:41 How (will it be) then when We bring from each community a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad) a witness against these people?
4:42 On that Day (of Judgment) those who disbelieved and disobeyed the Messenger (Muhammad) will wish if they were leveled (buried) with the earth, for they will not (be able to) hide any matter from Allah.
4:43 O you who believe! Don’t offer the prayer while you are intoxicated until you know (the meaning) of what you utter, nor when you are defiled (or in a state of sexual impurity) except when passing on way (traveling) until you wash yourselves. If you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you came from a toilet, or you had a sexual contact with women but did not find water, then do Tayammum with clean earth and rub with it your faces and your hands. Truly, Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving.
4:44 Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the book? They purchased error (wrong way), and they wish that you (believers) lose the Right Way.
4:45 Allah knows well your enemies. Sufficient is Allah as a Protector, and sufficient is Allah as a Helper.
4:46 Among those who are Jews (some of them) change words from their right places and they say: “We hear and we disobey,” and “Hear us and (let you O Muhammad) hear nothing.” And ‘Raina’ (an evil word used in Arabic in those days) with a twist of their tongues and a mockery of the religion (Islam). If they had only said: “We hear and we obey”, and “Hear us and look at us (to make us understand),” it would have been better for them, and more proper. But Allah has cursed them due to their disbelief, so they don’t believe except a few.
4:47 O you who have been given the Scripture! Believe in what We have revealed (to Muhammad) confirming what is (already) with you, before We wipe out your faces and turns them to their backs, or curse them as We cursed the people of Sabbath-breakers. The Commandment of Allah is executed.
4:48 Surely, Allah does not forgive that a partner is ascribed to Him, and He forgives other than that to whom He wills. Whoever associates anyone with Allah, indeed has devised a tremendous sin.
4:49 Have you not seen those who claim purity (though they believe in sharing partners with Allah) for themselves? Although it is Allah who purifies whom He pleases, and they will not be wronged the least even equal to the thread of a date-stone.
4:50 See how they invent a lie against Allah, and it is enough to be a clear sin.
4:51 Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the book? They believe in baseless superstitions and false deities (forces of Satan) and they say to those who disbelieved that they are better guided than those who believed to the Right Way.
4:52 They are those whom Allah has cursed, he whom Allah curses can find no helper
4:53 or do they have a share in the dominion? Then they would not give people even a speck on the back of a date-stone.
4:54 Or do they envy people (Muhammad and his followers) on whom Allah has given from His Bounty? Indeed We had already given family of Abraham the book, the wisdom, and gave them a great kingdom.
4:55 Of them who believed in him (Muhammad), and of them were some who turned away their faces from him. Hell is sufficient for a blaze.
4:56 Surely! Those who rejected Our Verses, We shall burn them in fire. As often as their skins are burnt out, We shall change them for other skins so that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allah is Mighty, All-Wise.
4:57 Those who believe and do good deeds, We shall admit them to gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), abide in it forever. For them will have purified spouses, We shall admit them to shades wide and ever deepening.
4:58 Surely! Allah commands you that you should deliver the trusts back to (those who are) worthy of them (rightful owners), and when you judge between people, you judge with justice. Surely, He excellently teaches you. Truly, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
4:59 O you who believe! You obey Allah and you obey the Messenger (Muhammad), and those among you having authority. Then if you dispute among yourselves in anything, refer it to Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is better and more suitable (for final) determination.
4:60 Have you not seen those (hypocrites) who claim that they believe in what has been sent down to you (O Muhammad), and what was sent down before you? They wish that they go for judgment (in their disputes) to fake judges though they were ordered that they reject it. But Satan wishes to mislead them far astray.
4:61 When it is said to them: “Come to what Allah has sent down and to the Messenger (Muhammad),” you (Muhammad) see the hypocrites turn away from you with dislike.
4:62 How then (they behave) when a calamity befalls them for what their hands have sent forth? They come to you (Muhammad) swearing by Allah: “Surely, we want only goodwill and reconciliation.”
4:63 They (hypocrites) are those of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts; so turn away from them, admonish them, and speak to them about themselves with penetrating (effective) words.
4:64 We never sent a Messenger, but who obeyed by Permission of Allah. If they (hypocrites), when they wronged themselves, they could have come to you (Muhammad) and asked forgiveness of Allah, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful.
4:65 But no (O Muhammad), by your Lord, they will not believe until they accept you as a judge in their disputes between them, and they don’t find in themselves any resistance on what you have decided, and accept with full submission.
4:66 And if We had enjoined upon them (saying): “You kill yourselves (the innocent ones kill the guilty ones) or leave from your homes,” they would not have done it except very few of them. If they had done what they were commanded of it, it would have been better for them, and would have added (to their faith) firmness;
4:67 and then We would have given them a great reward from Ourselve
4:68 and We would have guided them to the Right Way.
4:69 And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad), they will be with those upon whom Allah has bestowed (Allah’s) blessings - the prophets, the truthful, the martyrs, and the righteous. How excellent these companions will be!
4:70 That is the Bounty from Allah, and Allah is sufficient as All-Knower.
4:71 O you who believe! You take your precautions, and advance in groups or advance all together.
4:72 Indeed among you is one who lags behind (from fighting in Allah’s cause). Then if a calamity befalls you, he says: “Indeed Allah has bestowed (Allah’s) blessings upon me that I was not present with them.”
4:73 But if a Bounty from Allah befalls you, he would say as if there had not been affection between you and him: “(I wish) I had been with them; then I would have achieved a great success.”
4:74 Let those (believers) who fight in the way of Allah only be (those) who sell life of this world in exchange of the Hereafter. Whoever fights in the way of Allah and is killed or gets victory; We shall grant a great reward.
4:75 And what (is wrong) with you that you don’t fight in the Way of Allah (to help) the weak (and oppressed) among men, women, and children, who say: “Our Lord! Bring us out of this town whose people are oppressors; and appoint for us from You a protector, and appoint for us from You a helper?”
4:76 Those who believe, fight in the way of Allah. Those who disbelieve, fight in the way of Satan. So you (believers) fight against the friends of Satan. Surely strategy of Satan is weak.
4:77 Have you not seen those when it was said to them to hold back their hands (from fighting) and establish the prayer, and pay obligatory charity? Now, when the fighting is enjoined upon them, then a group of them fear people as they should have feared Allah or even greater fear, and say: “Our Lord! Why have You ordained on us the fighting? Why did not You defer it for us for another (short) period?" Say (to them): “Enjoyment of this world is short.” The Hereafter is better for whoever fears Allah, and you shall not be (treated unjustly) in the least (even equal to the thread of a date-stone).
4:78 Wherever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortified towers. If a good happens to them, they say: “This is from Allah,” but if an evil befalls them, they say: “This is from you (O Muhammad).” Say: "All are from Allah," so what (is wrong with) these people that they don’t seem to understand any word?
4:79 Whatever reaches to you of good, is from Allah, but whatever befalls you of evil, is from yourself. And We have sent you (Muhammad) for mankind as a Messenger, and Allah is Sufficient as a Witness.
4:80 Whoever obeys the Messenger (Muhammad) has indeed obeys Allah, and whoever turns away, then We have not sent you (O Muhammad) over them as a watcher.
4:81 They say: “We are obedient,” but when they leave your (Muhammad’s) presence, some of them spend night (planning) other than what you have said. But Allah records what they spend night (planning). So turn from them, and put your trust in Allah. Allah is All-Sufficient as a Trustee.
4:82 Do they not ponder over the Qur’an? Had it been from other than Allah, surely they would have found many contradictions in it.
4:83 Whenever there comes to them a matter of peace, or fear, they spread it; but if they had referred it to the Messenger and to those having authority among them, it would have been known by those who may infer (right conclusions) from them. If there had not been the Bounty of Allah on you and Allah’s Mercy, surely you would have followed Satan, except a few.
4:84 Then fight (O Muhammad) in the way of Allah, you are not accountable except for yourself. Urge the believers (to fight), may be that Allah will restrain evil of those who disbelieved. And Allah is Stronger in might and Stronger in punishment.
4:85 Whoever intercedes for a good cause, will have a share of it, and whoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a burden of it. And Allah has control over everything.
4:86 When you are greeted with a greeting, you greet better than that, or return it equally. Indeed, Allah keeps account over everything.
4:87 Allah! There is no one worthy of worship but Allah. Surely He will gather you together on the Day of Resurrection; there is no doubt in it. Who is more truthful than Allah in statement?
4:88 Then what is the matter with you regarding the hypocrites (that you have become) 2 parties? Allah has cast them back (to disbelief) for what they have earned. Do you want that you guide whom Allah lets go astray? Whoever Allah lets go astray, you will not find any way for them.
4:89 They wish that if you disbelieve, as they disbelieve, you become alike. So you should not take friends from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allah. But if they turn back (from Islam), seize them, kill them wherever you find them, and neither you take from them a friend nor a helper
4:90 except those who join a group, between you and between them there is a treaty of peace, or those who come to you restraining their hearts that they fight you or they fight their own people. Had Allah willed, He would have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. So if they withdraw from you, don’t fight against you, and offer you peace, then Allah has not made for you a way (to fight) against them.
4:91 You will find others (hypocrites) who wish that they be secure from you and they be secure from their people. Whenever they return to a mischief, they plunge into it. So if they don’t withdraw from you, nor offer you peace, nor they restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them. Those people, We have made for you against them a clear sanction.
4:92 It is not (appropriate) for a believer to kill a believer except by mistake. Whoever kills a believer by mistake, then it is commanded to free a believing captive and blood-money (compensation) be paid to his (deceased’s) family, except that they remit it as a charity. If he is from enemy people to you and is a believer; then freedom of a believing captive (is sufficient). If he is from people between you and between them is a covenant, then blood-money is paid to the family, and freedom of a believing captive. But whoever does not find it (means to free a captive and or blood-money), then fast for 2 consecutive months seeking repentance from Allah. Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise
4:93 And whoever kills a believer intentionally, the punishment is to abide in the hell forever. He will incur the wrath of Allah, Allah will lay curse on him, and prepared a great punishment.
4:94 O you who believe! When you go forth (to fight) in the way of Allah, don’t distinguish and say to whoever offers to you greetings of peace: “You are not a believer” seeking advantage of life of this world. Allah has abundant booties like this for you. (Remember what) you were before but then Allah graced upon you. So distinguish (carefully before considering anyone disbeliever). Surely Allah is Well-Aware of what you do.
4:95 Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are handicapped (disabled), and those who strive in the way of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has exalted those who strive with their wealth and their lives over those who sit in rank (at home). To each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), and Allah has graced those who strive above those who sit (at home) with a great reward;
4:96 (higher) ranks from Him, and forgiveness and Mercy. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
4:97 Surely! Those whom the angels caused death while they have wronged themselves, they (angels) say to them: “In what (condition) were you?” They reply: “We were oppressed in the earth.” They (angels) say: “Was not the earth of Allah spacious enough (for you) to emigrate in it?” Those people will find their abode in hell, an evil destination.
4:98 Except the oppressed ones from men, women and children who cannot devise a plan, and they cannot direct their way
4:99 these people may be that Allah will pardon them. Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving.
4:100 Whoever emigrates in the way of Allah, will find in the earth many places of refuge and abundant resources. Whoever leaves from home as an emigrant of Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him; surely reward is incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
4:101 When you travel in the earth, there is no sin on you to shorten your prayer if you fear that those who have disbelieved will harm you. Surely, the disbelievers are for you open enemies.
4:102 When you (O Muhammad) are among them, and you lead them in prayer (during war), let a group of them stand (in prayer) with you and let them take their arms (with them). When they finish prostrations, then let them (take positions) in your rear and let other group come up who has not yet prayed to pray with you, and let them take their precaution and their arms. Those who disbelieve wish, if you neglect your arms and your baggage, then they could jump upon you in a single rush. But there is no blame on you if you lay aside your arms due to inconvenience with you of rain or that you are sick, but take precaution for yourselves. Surely, Allah has prepared a humiliating torment for the disbelievers.
4:103 When you have finished the prayer, remember Allah standing, sitting, and on lying your sides, but when you are secure (from danger), establish prayer. Surely, the prayer is enjoined on the believers at fixed time.
4:104 Don’t be weak in pursuit of these people (enemy); if you are suffering hardships, they too are suffering hardships as you are suffering; while you hope from Allah the reward what they don’t hope, Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.
4:105 Surely, We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the book (this Qur’an) with the truth so that you may judge between the people with what Allah has shown you, and you don’t be an advocate for those who are treacherous.
4:106 And seek forgiveness of Allah, indeed Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
4:107 And don’t argue for those who deceive themselves. Indeed, Allah does not like anyone who is treacherous and sinful.
4:108 They may hide (their crimes) from people, but they cannot hide from Allah. As He is with them even when they plot by night in words what He does not approve. And Allah encompasses of what they do.
4:109 You may have argued for them in the life of this world, but who will argue with Allah for them on the Day of Resurrection, or who will be over them their defender?
4:110 Whoever does evil or wrongs against own soul then seeks forgiveness of Allah, will find Allah Forgiving, Merciful.
4:111 Whoever commits a sin, only earns against own soul. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise
4:112 Whoever commits a fault or a sin and then throws it on an innocent one, indeed burdens own soul with false charge and flagrant sin.
4:113 Had it not been the grace of Allah upon you (O Muhammad) and His Mercy, even if a group of them had decided that they would mislead you, but in fact they did not mislead except themselves, and they did not harm you in the least. Allah has sent down to you the book (the Qur’an), the wisdom, and taught you what you did not know. The Grace of Allah upon you (Muhammad) is great.
4:114 There is no good in most of their secret talks except one who commands in charity, or good deeds, or conciliation between people, and who does this, seeking the pleasure of Allah, We shall then give a great reward.
4:115 Whoever opposes the Messenger (Muhammad) after what has become clear, and follows the guidance other than the way of the believers, We shall keep him to where he has chosen; burn him in hell - what an evil destination.
4:116 Surely! Allah will never forgive the one who associates with Him. But other than that, He forgives whom He wills. Whoever associates others with Allah, has indeed misled misleading far away.
4:117 They (Pagan Arabs worship others than Allah) don’t invoke besides Him but female deities, and they don’t invoke but rebellious Satan.
4:118 Allah cursed Satan, who said: “I will take an appointed portion of your (Your) servants.
4:119 I will mislead them, I will arouse in them false desires, I will order them, and they will cut off ears of the cattle. I will order them and they will change the creation of Allah.” Whoever takes Satan as a guardian besides Allah, certainly has suffered a clear suffering.
4:120 He (Satan) makes promises to them, arouses in them false desires, and Satan does not promise them but deception.
4:121 These people will have their abode is hell, and they will not find from it an escape.
4:122 But those who believe (in the oneness of Allah) and do good deeds, We shall admit them to the gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), they will abide in it forever. Promise of Allah is true, and whose word is truer than Allah?
4:123 (The final results will be) neither your desires nor desires of people of the Scripture. Whoever does evil, will be required to pay for it, and will not find besides Allah any protector or any helper.
4:124 And whoever does good deeds, whether male or female, and is a believer, these people will enter Paradise and they will not be wronged even a speck on the back of a date-stone.
4:125 And who can be better in religion than the one who submits face to Allah, is righteous, follows religion of Abraham the upright, and Allah did take Abraham as a friend
4:126 And to Allah belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. Allah is encompassing of everything.
4:127 They ask you about women. Say: Allah instructs you about them, and what is recited to you in the book about orphan girls whom you don’t give them what was ordained for them (marriage-gift and inheritance) and yet you desire that you marry them. (Allah reminds you concerning) weak (and helpless) children among you that you stand for orphans with justice. Whatever good you do, indeed Allah is All-Aware of it.
4:128 And if a woman fears cruelty or desertion of her husband, then there is no blame on both of them that they reconcile themselves between reconciliation; and reconciliation is better. The souls are swayed by greed. But if you do good and fear from evil, then surely, Allah is Well- Acquainted with what you do.
4:129 You will never be able to do justice between wives even if you passionately desire, so don’t incline the whole inclination (to one of them with more time and provision), and leave others as hanging. But if you act rightly and fear Allah, then indeed Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
4:130 But if they separate (by divorce), Allah will make all independent (of each other and provide abundance) from His Bounty. And Allah is All-Sufficient, All-Wise.
4:131 And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Surely, We have advised those who were given the Scripture before you, and to you (O Muslims) that you fear Allah. But if you disbelieve (do at your own risk), then surely belongs to Allah what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, and Allah is Rich (free of all wants), Praise-Worthy.
4:132 And belongs to Allah what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. Allah is All-Sufficient as a Defender of affairs.
4:133 If He wills, He can take you away, O mankind, and bring others. And Allah is All-Potent over that.
4:134 Whoever desires reward of this world, then (you should know that) with Allah alone is the reward of this world and the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
4:135 O you who believe! You stand firm for justice as witnesses for Allah, though it is against yourselves, or parents, and relatives whether the party is rich or poor; Allah has more right than both of them. So you don’t follow your desires to do injustice. If you distort (facts) or you refrain, then (you should know that) Allah is Well-Aware of what you do.
4:136 O you who believe! Believe in Allah, and His Messenger (Muhammad), and the book (the Qur’an) which He has sent down to His Messenger, and the Scripture which He has sent down before. Whoever disbelieves in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Last Day, then indeed is mislead a misleading far away.
4:137 Surely, those who believe, then disbelieve, then believe again, and again disbelieve, then increase in their disbelief; Allah will neither forgive them, nor will guide them on the Right Way.
4:138 Give tidings to the hypocrites that for them there is painful punishment
4:139 those who take the disbelievers as allies instead of believers. Do they seek honor for them? Surely, the honor is for Allah all together.
4:140 And indeed He has sent down to you in the Scripture (this Qur’an) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being rejected and being mocked at, then you don’t sit with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; otherwise indeed you are like them. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers in hell all together.
4:141 Those (hypocrites) are watching closely to you. If there is a victory for you from Allah, they say: “Were we not with you?” But if there is a chance (of success) for disbelievers, they say: “Did we not have mastery over you and did we not protect you from the believers (Muslims)?” Allah will judge between you and them on the Day of Resurrection. And Allah will never make for the disbelievers over the believers a way (to triumph).
4:142 Surely, the hypocrites (try to) deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them. And when they stand up to the prayer, they stand with laziness to be seen by the people, and they don’t remember Allah but little
4:143 (they are) swaying between this and that, neither to these nor to those. Whom Allah sends astray, you can never find for them a way (to Islam).
4:144 O you who believe! You don’t take the disbelievers as allies instead of believers. Do you wish that you give Allah against yourselves a clear proof?
4:145 Surely, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the fire; and you will not find for them any helper
4:146 Except those who repent (from hypocrisy), mend their ways, hold fast to Allah, and purify their religion for Allah, they will be with the believers. And Allah will grant to the believers a great reward.
4:147 Why should Allah punish you if you have thanked (Him) and you have believed (in Him)? Allah is All-Appreciative (of good), All-Knower.
4:148 Allah does not like that words of evil should be uttered publicly except (by someone) who has wronged. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
4:149 If you disclose a good, or keep it secret, or pardon an evil; then surely, Allah is Forgiving, All-Powerful.
4:150 Surely, those who disbelieve in Allah and His Messengers and they wish that they differentiate between Allah and His Messengers, they say: “We believe in some and we disbelieve in others,” and they wish that they take between (belief and disbelief) a way
4:151 they are those disbelievers in truth. We have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment.
4:152 Those who believe in Allah and His Messengers, and they don’t differentiate between any one of them (Messengers), We shall give them their rewards. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
4:153 The people of the Scripture ask you that you cause to descend upon them a book from heaven. Surely they have asked Moses greater than that, they said: “Show us Allah in public.” So they were struck with a thunderbolt for their wickedness. Then they took (to worship) the calf even after what came to them with clear signs. (Even so) We forgave them and We gave Moses a clear authority.
4:154 And We raised over them the mount (Tur) for their covenant, and We said to them: “Enter the gate prostrating with humility.” We also said to them: “You don’t violate (by doing worldly works in the) Sabbath (Saturday)." And We took from them a firm covenant.
4:155 (Even then) they broke the covenant, rejected the Verses of Allah, and killed the prophets unjustly. They say: "Our hearts are wrapped (don’t understand what the Messengers say).” But Allah has set a seal upon them (hearts) due to their disbelief. So they don’t believe but a few.
4:156 And they (went so far) in their disbelief that they uttered against Mary a mighty slander.
4:157 And they say that: “We have killed Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, Messenger of Allah.” Neither did they kill him, nor did they crucify him, but (it was made) to resemble for them. Surely those who differed in it (they were) in doubt about it. They did not have any knowledge about it except following the guess and surely they did not kill him (Jesus).
4:158 Allah raised him (Jesus) up (with body and soul) to Himself (in the heavens). Allah is All-Powerful, All-Wise.
4:159 There is none of the people of the Scripture who will believe in this fact before their death. On the Day of Resurrection, he (Jesus) will be a witness against them.
4:160 Due to the wrong-doing of those who call themselves Jews, and for their hindering many people from the way of Allah; We made unlawful to them certain foods (which had been) lawful for them,
4:161 for their taking of usury though they were forbidden from taking it, and for their devouring of wealth of people wrongfully. And We have prepared for the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.
4:162 But those among them who are firmly rooted in knowledge, and those believers who believe in what has been sent down to you (Muhammad) and what was sent down before you, and those who perform prayer, and who pay obligatory charity, and who believe in Allah and in the Last Day; it is they to whom We shall give a great reward.
4:163 Surely, We have revealed to you (O Muhammad) just as We had revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. We also revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and (his) offspring, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.
4:164 And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned them to you, and Allah spoke to Moses (directly).
4:165 The Messengers are bearers of glad tidings and warners so that there is not any plea for people against Allah after the Messengers. Allah is All-Powerful, All-Wise.
4:166 Allah bears witness to that which He has sent down (the Qur’an) to you (Muhammad). He has sent it down with His knowledge, and the angels bear witness too. Allah is All-Sufficient as a Witness.
4:167 Surely, those who disbelieve and prevent people from the way of Allah, surely they have strayed far away.
4:168 Surely, those who disbelieve and do wrong, Allah will neither forgive them, nor He will guide them to any way
4:169 except way of hell, they will abide in it forever, and that is easy for Allah.
4:170 O mankind! Surely, the Messenger (Muhammad) has come to you with the truth from your Lord. So believe in him, it is better for you. But if you disbelieve, then indeed to Allah belongs what is in the heavens and the earth. Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.
4:171 O people of the Scripture! Don’t exceed the limits in your religion. Don’t say of Allah but the truth only. The Messiah Jesus, son of Mary (no more than) a Messenger of Allah and His Word “Be” which He conveyed to Mary and a soul from Him (was created by Him in her womb). So believe in Allah and His Messengers, you don’t say: “3 (trinity)!” Give up, it is better for you. Only Allah is one worthy of worship. Glory is to Him far above that He should have a son. To Him belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. Allah is All-Sufficient as a Guardian.
4:172 The Messiah will never disregard that he be a servant to Allah, nor the angels near (to Allah). Whoever rejects from His worship and shows arrogance, He will certainly gather them all together before Himself.
4:173 As for those who believe and do good deeds, He will give their due rewards, and give them more out of His Bounty. But as for those who refuse and show arrogance, He will punish them with a painful punishment. They will not find for them besides Allah any guardian or any helper.
4:174 O mankind! Surely, there has come to you proof (Muhammad) from your Lord, and We have sent down to you a clear light (this Qur’an).
4:175 As for those who believed in Allah and held fast to Him, He will admit them to His Mercy and Grace (Paradise), and guide them to a Right Way.
4:176 They ask you to pronounce a ruling. Say: “Allah pronounces for you a ruling about Al-Kalala (who leaves behind no heirs). If a man dies, he does not have a child and a sister, then for her is ½ (inheritance) of what he has left. He (brother) will inherit her (sister) if she does not have a child. If there are 2 (sisters), then for them are 2/3rd of what he left, and if they were (many) brothers (and sisters) male and female, then the male will have the 2 shares (twice) of females. (Thus) Allah makes clear to you lest you go astray. Allah is All-Knower of everything."
