3:1  A.L.M
3:2  Allah! La-ilaha-illa-Huwa, Ever-Alive, Eternal
3:3  He has delivered to you Al-Kitab, in original, confirming as true what is in between its two hands (i.e., already there) and He delivered At-Taurat and Al-Injeel
3:4  — even before (acting as) guidance to mankind, and He delivered Al-Furqan. Truly, those who have disbelieved in the Ayaatillah, for them is a severe punishment. And Allah is All-Mighty, One Who takes retribution
3:5  Verily, Allah! Nothing hides (itself) to Him, in the earth or in the heaven
3:6  He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He thinks proper. La-ilaha-illa-Huwa, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise
3:7  He it is Who has provided you Al-Kitab wherein are statements literal and evident that are the Essence of the Scripture, while others are in similes. As for those who have suspicion in their hearts they stick to that which is used in similitude, seehead of state disruption and trying to know its interpretation. And does not know its interpretation except Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge declare: “We Believe in it, the entire matter is from our Nourisher-Sustainer.” And does not receive admonition except people of knowledge and understanding
3:8  (Those firmly grounded in knowledge pray): “Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Let not our hearts deviate after You have given us guidance, and bestow on us mercy from Your providence. Truly You! You are the Bestower
3:9  Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Verily, You are One Who gathers mankind on the Day about which there is no doubt.” Verily, Allah never goes against Promise
3:10  Definitely! Those who have disbelieved — their wealth and their children shall not benefit them at all against Allah. And those people: they (are) the fuel for the Fire
3:11  Like the behaviour of the followers of Firaun and those before them; they belied Our Ayaat, so Allah seized them for their sins. And Allah is strict in retribution
3:12  Say to those who have disbelieved: “You will soon be defeated and gathered together to Hell and (it is) evil as a place of abode.”
3:13  There was certainly a proof for you people in the two groups: the two faced each other, one group fights in the Cause of Allah while the other one (is) a disbelieving folk. They see them double of their own (in number) — a view of the (physical) eye. And Allah supports with His assistance whom He thinks proper. Verily, in this is a lesson for those who have sights
3:14  Has been made to appear tempting to mankind, the love for desires like women, and children, and treasures well stored-up of gold and silver, and splendid beautiful branded horses and cattle and farms. These are the possessions of immediate life. And Allah: with Him is the excellence of final abode
3:15  Say: “Shall I inform you of better than this to you for those who paid obedience?” With their Nourisher-Sustainer (are) orchards underneath which flow streams, (only obedients are) dwellers therein; and (an additional gift in the form of) Companions, cleansed and purified; and appreciations from Allah. And Allah (is) All-Seer of (His) Ibad
3:16  those who say: “Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Certainly we, we have Believed, so forgive us our sins and save us from the punishment of the Fire— ”
3:17  those who are perseverent, and those who speak the truth, and those who are sincerely devout, and those who spend (in accordance with the ordainments in Al-Kitab), and those who pray for forgiveness in the last (pre-dawn) hours of the nights
3:18  Allah has bore witness: certainly it is that La-ilaha-illa-Huwa and (similarly bore witness) angels, and those bestowed with true knowledge. (He is) Ever-Upholder of justice. La ilaha illa Huwa, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise
3:19  Verily! The Religion with Allah is Islam. And did not differ those who were given Al-Kitab but after knowledge had already come to them — out of mutual rebellious jealousy. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayaat of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in accountability
3:20  So if people made arguments with you, then declare: “I have surrendered my person to Allah and (so has) that who has followed me.” And say to those who are bestowed with Al-Kitab and (also to those who are) Ummiyyun: “Have you surrendered (to Allah in Islam)?” Then if they have surrendered, then verily, they have received guidance. But if they turn away, then certainly what is binding on you (is) conveying the Message. And Allah is All-Seer of (His) Ibad
3:21  Verily, those who disbelieve in the Ayaat of Allah, and kill the Prophets without right, and kill those amongst mankind who order justice — so give them the good news of a grievous punishment
3:22  They are those whose works stand lost in this world and the Hereafter and (there is) not for them (any one) out of the helpers
3:23  Didn’t you see towards those who were given a portion from Al-Kitab? They are invited to the Book of Allah so that it may pronounce judgement amongst them; then turns away a group amongst them and they (are) deviators
3:24  This is because they said: “The Fire shall not touch us except for the days numbered. And has deceived them, about their religion, whatever forgeries they were committing
3:25  So how (will it be) when We gathered them for the Day about which there is no doubt, and was paid in full every soul whatever she earned and they would not be subjected to unjust behaviour
3:26  Say: “Beloved Allah, Sovereign of the state, You hand over the state whom You think proper and you snatch away the state from whom you think proper. And You bestow honour whomever You think proper and You dishonour whomever You think proper. In Your Hand (lies the control of) the good. Certainly You are All-Capable over every thing
3:27  You make the night to enter into the (duration of the) day, and You make the day to enter into the (duration of the) night, and You bring the living out of the dead, and You bring the dead out of the living. And You give wealth and sustenance to whom You think proper without limit and accountability
3:28  The Believers do not pick up disbelievers as auliya instead of the Believers; and whoever commits this — then there is no (assistance) from Allah in anything except that you make defence against them (when) being defensive. And Allah cautions you about His Self. And to Allah is the Final Return
3:29  Say: “If you hide what is inside your chests (as your thoughts) or you reveal it, Allah knows it, and He knows what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. And Allah is All-Capable over every thing.”
3:30  The Day every self finds, whatever she did out of the good (acts) made available; as well as whatever she did out of the bad (acts). (Then and there) she will wish, that (there be) between her and between it a distance, great. And Allah cautions you about His Self. And Allah is full of kindness to (His) Ibad
3:31  Say: “If you do love Allah then follow me: Allah will love you and forgive for you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, continuously Merciful.”
3:32  Say: “Obey Allah and the Messenger.” Then if they turned away, then, certainly, Allah does not like the disbelievers
3:33  Certainly Allah chose Adam, and Nuh and the followers of Ibrahim and the followers of Imran over the worlds
3:34  offspring, some of that, out of some other. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower
3:35  (Appreciate!) When the wife of Imran said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! I have vowed to You what is in my womb (to keep him) Moharrarun [one who is allowed freedom (from the clutches of sectarianism)]; so do accept from me. Certainly You, You are All-Hearer, All-Knower.”
3:36  Then when she delivered that (what was in her womb) she said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Certainly I delivered that (as) a female (child),” — and Allah (is always) a Better Knower about what she delivered, and the male (child she had in her mind) would not have (fulfilled the role) the way the female (fulfilled); “and certainly I, I have given her the name, Maryam, and certainly I put her to protection, to You (O Allah,) and (also) her offspring against (the evil effects of) Satan, the outcast.”
3:37  So her Benefactor accepted her, with a gracious acceptance. And He made her grow in a graceful growth and He placed her under the guardianship of Zakariyya. Every time Zakariyya entered Al-Mihrab to (meet) her, he found in her possession sustenance. He said: “O Maryam! From where, for you (is made available all) this?” She said: “It (has come) from the possession of Allah. Verily, Allah provides sustenance whom He thinks proper, without limit.”
3:38  Then and there Zakariyya invoked his Nourisher-Sustainer. He said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Grant for me, from Your bounty, an offspring, pure and chaste. Without doubt, You are the All-Hearer to invocation.”
3:39  So the angels called him, while he was in the act of standing up — he will offer Salat in Al-Mihrab, (Angels said): “Certainly Allah delivers you the good news of Yahya (who is to act as) a testifier to the statement from Allah, and he (is) a leader, and (is) protected and guarded, and (is) a Prophet out of the righteous.”
3:40  He said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! How shall be for me a son and certainly the old age has reached me and my wife is (declared) barren?” (Allah) said: “Thus Allah will accomplish whatever He thinks proper.”
3:41  (Zakariyya) said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Specify a sign for me.” (Allah) said: “Your sign is that you shall not speak to men for three days except with signals. And remember and propagate your Nourisher-Sustainer exceedingly and glorify (Him in Prayers) in the evening and the morning.”
3:42  And when the angels said: “O Maryam! Verily Allah has chosen you, and has sanctified you and He has chosen you over the women of the worlds
3:43  O Maryam! Be devout to your Nourisher-Sustainer, and prostrate yourself, and bow down along with those who bow down.”
3:44  This (is) out of the ‘unseen news’ We are telling you. And you were not with them when they drop their pens (as to) who out of them provides guardianship to Maryam, and you were not near them when they dispute with one another (each claiming a better right to act as a guardian)
3:45  (Now ponder over another incident) When the angels said: “O Maryam! Allah gives you the glad news of a Statement proceeding from Him, his name (would be) Al-Maseeh, Iesa, son of Maryam, (becoming) highly honoured in this world and the Hereafter and out of those who are in nearness (to Allah)
3:46  And he will make statements to people in the cradle and in maturity and (he would be) from among those who are clean (in actions and deeds).”
3:47  She said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! How shall be for me an offspring when a man has not touched me. He said: In this manner, Allah shall create whatever He shall desire. When He has decreed a matter, so it is, that He says to it: “Be”, Lo! It becomes
3:48  And He will teach him Al-Kitab, and Al-Hikmah, and At-Taurat, and Al-Injeel
3:49  and (He will appoint him) a Messenger to the progeny of Israiel. (Iesa spoke thus): “Verily! I have come to you with a Credential from your Nourisher-Sustainer, that I design for you out of (the items of) this earth alligned to the figure of a bird, then I blow into it, so it becomes a flying object by Allah’s permission. And I heal the congenitally blind and (also) the leper, and I revive the dead-ones by Allah’s permission. And I shall inform you what you consume and what you store in your houses. Surely therein (is) a sign for you if you happen to be Believers
3:50  And (I am) the testifier of that which (is) in between my two hands as At-Taurat, and (I preach) so that I make lawful to you something which was made (by deviators) forbidden to You. And I have come to you with a credential from your Nourisher-Sustainer. So pay obedience to Allah and obey me
3:51  Truly! Allah is my Nourisher-Sustainer and your Nourisher-Sustainer, so be obedient to Him. This is the Permanent Path.
3:52  Then whatever Iesa felt from them (as) disbelief, he said: “Who (are) my helpers towards Allah?” Said the disciples: “We (are) the helpers of Allah; we have Believed in Allah and give evidence (to whom you will) that we are definitely Muslims
3:53  Our Nourisher-Sustainer! We have Believed in what You have bestowed and we have followed the Messenger; so record us alongwith the witnesses.”
3:54  And they plotted (against Iesa) and Allah plotted (to protect him). And Allah is the Best of planners
3:55  Behold! Allah said: “O Iesa! Certainly I am the Giver of death to you and the Raiser of you towards Me and the Protector to you against those who rejected (you), and the Maintainer of those who have followed you above and higher to those who have rejected (you) — till the Day of Resurrection. Afterwards, towards Me is your returning place, then I will pronounce judgement between you people in whatever you used to create differences of opinion
3:56  Then as to those who disbelieved, so I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter; and not for them (is available anyone) from the helpers.”
3:57  Then as to those who have Believed and have done righteous deeds, so He will pay them in full their rewards. And Allah does not like the transgressors
3:58  This (is what) We recite to you of the Verses and the Message full of wisdom
3:59  Certainly the similitude of Iesa before Allah is like the example of Adam. He created him from dust, then said to him: “Be" — there he becomes
3:60  Al-Haqq (coming) from your Nourisher-Sustainer, so be not of those who doubt
3:61  Then whoever disputed with you concerning him after whatever has come to you from True knowledge, then say: “Come, we call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, our selves and your selves — then we pray to invoke, then we invite the curse of Allah upon those who lie.”
3:62  Verily this! As usual it is the true narrative. And none is from (the category of) god except Allah. And indeed, Allah, certainly, He (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise
3:63  So if they turned away, then surely, Allah (is) All-Aware of mischief mongers
3:64  Say: “O people of Al-Kitab: join on the basis of a statement acceptable amongst us and amongst you, that we do not pay obedience but to Allah; and we associate nothing as partners to Him, and some of us shall not pick up some as nourisher-sustainer besides Allah.” Then if they turned away, then say: “Bear witness that we are Muslims.”
3:65  O people of Al-Kitab! Why do you dispute about Ibrahim when (according to your superficial knowledge) At-Taurat and Al-Injeel were not sent except after him. What, then, don’t you use intelligence
3:66  So you are the same people who disputed in that about which (is) knowledge for you. So, for what you create dispute in that about which is not knowledge for you. And Allah knows and you people do not know
3:67  Ibrahim is not a Yahudi and not a Nasraani but he is a devout Muslim and he is not of the polytheists
3:68  Surely the nearest of men to Ibrahim are those who followed him and this Prophet and those who have Believed. And Allah is the Wali of the Believers
3:69  A group out of the people of Al-Kitab desired if they (ever) could make you go astray. But they shall not lead astray except their own selves but they realise not
3:70  O people of Al-Kitab! Why do you disbelieve the Ayaat of Allah although you are: you act as witnesses (for their truth)
3:71  O people of Al-Kitab! Why do you cover Al-Haqq with unauthentic (and unreal) and you conceal Al-Haqq while you are: you know (the difference)
3:72  And a group out of the people of Al-Kitab said: “Accept that which has been made evident on those who have Believed, at the start of the day, and reject it at its end, so that they (also) turn back (and become disbelievers)
3:73  And do not Believe except for that one who adopted your religion. Say: “Verily! Genuine guidance is the Guidance coming from Allah. (Do you fear) that a certain one is bestowed similar to that what has been bestowed on you or (that) they make arguments against you before your Nourisher-Sustainer?” Say (further): “Certainly the bounty is in the Hand of Allah; He grants to whom He thinks proper. And Allah is Omnipresent, Omniscient.”
3:74  He selects under His mercy whom He thinks proper. And Allah is the Possessor of Magnificent Bounty
3:75  And out of the people of Al-Kitab (is that) who if you entrust him with a huge sum he will return it; and out of them (is that) who if you entrust him with one Dinar, he will not return it to you except (under the pressure of that) which you continued on him standing (before him repeatedly). This is because, without doubt, they said: “(There is) no blame on us about (doing dishonesty with) the Ummiyyun and (thus) they utter against Allah a falsehood although they know
3:76  Behold! Whoever remained sincere with his pledge and remained obedient, then verily, Allah loves Al-Muttaqun
3:77  Verily, those who purchase at the cost of Allah’s covenant and their (own) oaths a small sum, those people: (there is) no portion for them in the Hereafter. Allah will not talk to them and will not look at them on the Day of Resurrection, and will not sanctify them. And for them (is) a punishment most painful
3:78  And certainly out of them, usually a group twist their tongues on Al-Kitab (confusing and misguiding the listeners) so that you may regard it from Al-Kitab, although it is not from Al-Kitab and they say: “It is from Allah,” although it is not from Allah and they utter lie against Allah and they know
3:79  It suits not a human being that Allah may give him Al-Kitab and Al-Hukm (The Verdict) and An-Nubuwwah, then he says to people: “Be Ibad to me in derogation to Allah.” On the contrary (Allah tells them): “Be you Rabbaniyyun because you transmit and teach (the knowledge of) Al-Kitab and because you had been studying (it).”
3:80  And He does not advise you that you should pickup angels and Prophets as arbab (nourishers-sustainers). Would He order you for disbelief after when you are Muslims
3:81  And (bring to mind) when Allah took the covenant of the Prophets (saying): “Truly what I have given you as Kitab and Hikmah — afterwards came to you a Messenger as confirmer and rehearser for what is with you, (as a requirement) you must Believe in him and (as a necessity) you must assist him.” (Allah further) said: “Have you agreed and understood My Covenant regarding this (instruction) to you?” They said: “We have agreed.” He said: “Then bear witness and I am with you, among the witnesses.”
3:82  Then whoever turned back after this, so those people — they are the Fasiqun
3:83  What then? They seek other than Religion of Allah, although to Him submitted whoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly and unwillingly. And to Him shall they be returned
3:84  Declare: “We have Believed in Allah and what is bestowed to us and what is bestowed to Ibrahim, and Ismaiel, and Ishaque, and Yaqub, and Al-Asbat, and what is given to Musa, and Iesa, and the Prophets from their Nourisher-Sustainer. We make no distinction for any one among them and we are, to Him, Muslims.”
3:85  And whoever seeks, other than Islam, as Religion, then (it) will never be accepted from him; and he, in the Hereafter, (will be) from among the losers
3:86  How shall Allah guide a nation (who) disbelieved after (declaring) their Belief and (after) they gave evidence that the Messenger is Truth and (after) came to them Al-Bayyinat? And Allah guides not the nation of transgressors
3:87  Those are they whose recompense (is) that on them (rests) the curse of Allah, and of the angels, and of all mankind
3:88  They will abide in that (state). The punishment shall not be lightened on them and they shall not be given respite
3:89  except those who repented after that and reformed (themselves). Then verily! Allah is Oft-Forgiving, continuously Merciful
3:90  Certainly, those who disbelieved after (declaring) their Belief (and) afterwards went deeper in disbelief, never will their repentance be accepted, and they, they are the deviators
3:91  Verily, those who disbelieved and died while they (are) disbelievers, then will not be accepted from anyone of them the whole earth full of gold, even if he offered it as a ransom. Those people: for them is a painful punishment and (there is) not for them, from among the helpers
3:92  By no means shall you attain Al-Birr unless you spend out of that which you cherish (to own and possess); And what you spend out of any thing — then certainly Allah is Fully-Aware of it
3:93  ‘All food was lawful to the progeny of Israiel except what Israiel (himself) made unpermitted to his ownself before At-Taurat was revealed’. (This is again a false statement made by those who seek mischief). Say: “Come along with At-Taurat and recite it if you are truthful.”
3:94  Then whosoever invented a falsehood against Allah after that — then those (people), they are the transgressors
3:95  Say: “Allah has spoken the Truth, so adopt the Millat of Ibrahim, the unitarian and he was not from among the polytheists"
3:96  Verily, the first House appointed for mankind — definitely it is that at Bakka (Makka), full of blessing, and a guidance to the worlds
3:97  In it are manifest signs (for example) the Maqam-o-Ibrahim. Whoever entered it became one who is in peace. And dedicated to Allah, incumbent upon mankind, is a journey or travel towards the House, for one who could afford a passage towards it; and who denied (this ordainment in his actions or Belief) then certainly Allah is One Who stands not in need of (whatever exists in) the worlds
3:98  Say: “O people of Al-Kitab! Why do you reject the Ayaat of Allah? And Allah is Witness to whatever you do
3:99  Say: “O people of Al-Kitab! Why do you obstruct from the Path of Allah that who has Believed? You desire for it distortion even though you are witnesses. And Allah is not unaware of what you do"
3:100  O you people who have Believed! If you obey a group of those who were given Al-Kitab, they would render you disbelievers after your (accepting) Belief
3:101  And how would you disbelieve while you are — are reproduced unto you the Verses of Allah and among you is His Messenger. And whoever holds firmly to (the Book of) Allah, then indeed he has been guided to the Permanent Path
3:102  O you people who have Believed! Pay allegiance to Allah in accordance with the right of allegiance due to Him. And you must not die except while you are Muslims
3:103  And hold fast to the Rope of Allah (i.e., His Al-Kitab) as a group and divide not into sects, and bring to mind and discuss Allah’s grace on you when you were enemies (unto each other) but He put love and attachment in between your hearts, so you became, by His grace, brethren. And you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, then He saved you from it. Thus Allah explains for you His statements, perchance you may receive guidance
3:104  And let there arise out of you an Ummah — they shall invite to (what is) Al-Khair (good and beneficial); they shall enjoin Al-Ma’ruf (the desirable) and they shall forbid against Al-Munkar (the undesirable); and those people: they are the successful ones
3:105  And be not as those who divided and differed after whatever came to them (as) Al-Bayyinat! And those: for them is a punishment, extra-ordinary
3:106  The Day (some) faces attain brightness and (some) faces become dark; then as those people — their faces became dark, (will be questioned): “Did you reject Faith after (attaining) your Belief? Then taste the punishment of what you had been rejecting and denying
3:107  Then as those people — their faces become bright, so (they will be) in Allah’s mercy. They will abide therein
3:108  These are the Verses of Allah: We reproduce them to you in original. And Allah desires not injustice to the worlds
3:109  And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. And to Allah, matters are returned (for decision)
3:110  You are the best ummah raised up for mankind. You shall enjoin Al-Ma’ruf and you shall forbid against Al-Munkar; and you shall Believe in Allah. And had the people of Al-Kitab Believed (in Al-Kitab) it would have been better for them. Among them are Believers but most of them are Al-Fasiqun
3:111  They will definitely do you no harm, barring an injury; and if they battle against you, they will run away from you on their backs, then they will not receive (any) assistance (against you)
3:112  They are smitten with vileness wheresoever they are found, except (when) under a covenant from Allah and a covenant from men. And they have drawn (on themselves) the wrath of Allah, and they are smitten with indignity. This (engulfed them) because they had been rejecting the Ayaat of Allah and had been assassinating the Prophets (in personality) without right. This is because they disobeyed and used to transgress (the limits, set by Allah)
3:113  They (are) not (all) alike. Out of the people of Al-Kitab (exists) a group of upright people: ‘they recite the Ayaat of Allah during the hours of night and they, they make prostrations (while in Prayer)
3:114  They Believe in Allah and the Last Day and they enjoin Al-Ma’ruf and forbid against Al-Munkar, and they hasten in Al-Khairat (ideal actions and good works) and they are out of the righteous'
3:115  And whatever they do out of good: so (it) shall not be denied unto them; and Allah is All-Aware of Al-Muttaqun
3:116  Surely, those who have rejected (acted against Al-Kitab): shall not profit them their possessions and nor their children, against Allah, in any way. And they are dwellers of the Fire. They, therein (shall be) dwellers
3:117  The example of that which they spend in this immediate life is the example of a wind — in it is icy cold (effect): it struck the harvest of the nation who wronged their selves, so it destroyed it. And Allah did not deal unjustly with them; rather, they deal unjustly with their ownselves
3:118  O you people who have Believed (in Al-Kitab)! Take not as Bitanah (confidant) from outside your own. They shall not fail in injecting corruption and vulgarity in you. They desired that which pained you. Their hatred (against Islam) has become evident from their facies. And whatever their chests conceal is more serious and dangerous. Certainly, We have made evident to you the signs (to understand the enemy) if you were using (your) intellect
3:119  Lo! You are such people: you like them and they like you not; you Believe in Al-Kitab in its entire text. And when they met you they said: “We have Believed.” And when they attained privacy they bit, out of hatred against you, the tips of (their) fingers, in rage. Say: “Perish in your rage. Certainly, Allah is All-Aware with the state (of hearts) in the chests.”
3:120  If a good befalls you, it grieves them; and if an evil overtakes you, they rejoice over it. And if you remain patient and remain in obedience, their planning shall not do you any harm. Surely, Allah is All-Vigilant and Watchful on what they do
3:121  And (bring to mind) when you departed from your family-members: you are assigning to the Believers (their) positions for battle. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower
3:122  When two groups from among you intended that they two may become defensive, although Allah was their Wali: and in Allah the Believers must put their trust
3:123  And certainly, Allah provided you help and aid at Badr when you were weak (a tiny little military force, not properly armed). So be mindful of Allah so that you may (thus) pay thanks
3:124  (Remember) when you say to the Believers: Is it not enough for you that your Nourisher-Sustainer helps you with three thousand (force) of the angels caused to descend (to fight on your side)?”
3:125  Yes! If you hold on to patience and stick to obedience, and they (i.e., your enemies) approach you in their fury (more serious than) this: your Nourisher-Sustainer will assist you with five thousand of the angels, specially assigned (for vehement attacks)
3:126  Allah made it not but as an encouraging news for you and so that your hearts get solace thereby. And no aid and assistance (comes) except from Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise
3:127  that He might cut off a part of those who disbelieved or cast them down to infamy, so that they return frustrated
3:128  Not for you (is the responsibility) in the matter in any way whether He turns to them (in mercy) or punishes them because certainly they are transgressors
3:129  And to Allah belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. He forgives for whom He thinks proper and He punishes whom He thinks proper. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving continuously Merciful
3:130  O you who have Believed! Devour not Riba (usury) marked up and multiplied, and pay obedience to Allah that you may be successful
3:131  And take protection against the Fire which is prepared for the rejectors
3:132  And obey Allah and the Messenger so that you may be placed under mercy
3:133  And strive with speed in the direction of Forgiveness from your Nourisher-Sustainer; and Paradise — its area (is like) the heavens and the earth (together), prepared for Al-Muttaqun
3:134  those who spend in prosperity and adversity, and who suppress and pardon men; and Allah loves those who do good
3:135  and those who, when they committed lewdness or wronged their own souls, became mindful of Allah and invoked forgiveness for their sins; and who forgives sins except Allah? And do not insist on what they have done once they come to know (the sinfullness of the act)
3:136  Those (are the ones): reward to them (is) forgiveness from their Nourisher Sustainer, and Gardens beneath which flow rivers. (They would be) dwellers therein. And excellent (is) the reward for those who act (on the teachings of Al-Kitab)
3:137  Surely, have passed away before you, ways of life. So travel through the earth, then see what was the end of those who belied (Al-Kitab)
3:138  This (Al-Kitab) is an Explained Exposition (Bayan) for mankind, and Guidance and Admonition for Al-Muttaqun
3:139  So do not feel weak and do not be depressed; for you are the master (and superior) if you happen to be Believers
3:140  If a setback has struck you, then surely a setback similar to it has struck the (other) nation (also). And such periods — We cause them to move among people. And (it is such) so that Allah may know those who have Believed and may pick up from amongst you Witnesses. And Allah loves not the transgressors
3:141  and that Allah may protect those who have Believed and annihilate the disbelievers
3:142  Have you assessed that you will enter Paradise: and as yet Allah knew not those amongst you who fought strenuously (in His way); and that He may know the patiently perseverants
3:143  You were indeed longing for death before you faced it. So, without doubt you have seen it and you are awaiting (for orders instead of tahead of state initiative)
3:144  And Muhammad is not except a Messenger. Surely, have passed away Messengers before him. So, then, if he died or got killed — you turned back on your heels? And he who turns back on his two heels, then surely he does not harm Allah in any form. And soon Allah will reward the grateful
3:145  And it is not for a life that she dies, except by the permission of Allah (and this happens at) an appointed term. And whoever desires reward in the world We shall give him of it; and whoever desires reward in the Hereafter, We shall give him thereof. And soon We shall reward the grateful
3:146  And many a Prophet indulged in war; indulged in war with him (i.e., alongside the Prophet) numerous people devoted to the Nourisher-Sustainer. So they did not lose heart for that which did befall them in Allah’s Way. And they did not show weakness and did not show exhaustion. And Allah loves the perseverant
3:147  And their utterance was not except that they said: “Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Forgive us our sins and our excesses in our conduct and make firm our steps and assist us against the disbelieving nation.”
3:148  So Allah gave them the reward of this world, and the excellence of the reward of the Hereafter. And Allah loves Al-Muhsinun
3:149  O you who have Believed! If you obey those who have disbelieved, they will make you turn back on your heels and you will return as losers
3:150  Nay, Allah is your Maula, and He is the best of helpers
3:151  Soon shall We cast into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, terror, because they associated partners with Allah — that for which He has not sent credential. And their abode is the Fire and evil is the abode of the wrong-doers
3:152  And indeed, Allah did fulfill to you His promise when you are annihilating them under His permission; until when you lost courage and fell to disputing about the order, and you disobeyed after what He showed you which you cherish. Amongst you (is) that who desires this world and amongst you (is) that who desires the Hereafter. Then He separated you from them so that He may assess you. And certainly He forgave you. And Allah is (Full) of Grace to the Believers
3:153  When you are climbing (the high ground) and do not look behind to any one, and the Messenger calls you to (the band of enemy on) your rear, so He gave you the result: distress after distress, so that you may not grieve over what escaped you and not (grieve over) what befell you. And Allah is Well-Aware of what you do
3:154  Then He sent on you, after the (phase of) stress, a state of peace in the form of slumber — it overtakes a group amongst you. And (another) group: their selves made them anxious — they imagine about Allah, other than reality, (i.e., ) an imagination based on ignorance. They say: “Is there for us, in the affair, any say?” Tell (them): “Indeed, the affair — the whole of it belongs to Allah.” They hide within themselves what they do not reveal to you. They say: “Had there been for us a say in the affair, we would not have been killed here.” Tell them: “If you had remained in your homes, surely would have proceeded those, on whom ‘the kill’ (at the hands of the enemy) is decreed, to their beds (of death). And so that Allah makes assessment of what is in your chests, and so that He purifies what is in your hearts. And Allah is All-Aware about the condition of (the contents of) the chests
3:155  Certainly those who turned back amongst you, the day the two groups met: certainly it is that Satan caused them to backslide because of some which they had earned. And Indeed, Allah has forgiven them (their sins). Surely, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Forbearing
3:156  O you people who have Believed! Be not like those who have disbelieved and said about their brethren when they travelled through the earth, or were those who fight (in Allah’s Way): “If they had been with us, they would not have died and would not have been killed,” so that Allah may make it a cause of regret in their hearts. And (it is) Allah That gives life and causes death. And Allah is All-Seer of what you do
3:157  And if you are killed in the Way of Allah, or you died: surely, forgiveness from Allah and mercy (are) far better than that which they amass
3:158  And whether you died or you are killed, verily, unto Allah you shall be gathered
3:159  So, with mercy from Allah, you dealt gently with them. And had you been strict, harsh-hearted, surely they would have moved away from your precincts; so overlook them (their faults) and invoke forgiveness for them and consult them in the affair. Then when you have taken a stand (on the matter), then put (your) trust in Allah. Certainly Allah loves those who put (their) trust (in Him)
3:160  If Allah does assist you, then none (can be one) who overcomes you; and if He forsakes you, then who is that who assists you after Him? And in Allah must put trust the Believers
3:161  And it is not for a Prophet that he breaches trust. And one who breaches trust, shall restore what ever he breached on the Day of Resurrection. Then shall be paid in full every soul what she earned — and they shall not be dealt with unjustly
3:162  Is then one who obeyed what is pleasing unto Allah, like the one who brought on himself something of the wrath of Allah and his receptacle (happens to be) Hell — a woeful place of stay
3:163  (For) them are gradings with Allah and Allah is All-Seer what they do
3:164  Indeed, Allah bestowed extra grace to the Believers when He raised among them a Messenger from amongst themselves. He rehearses unto them His Ayaat and sanctifies them and gives them the knowledge of Al-Kitab and Al-Hikmah, while definitely they were, since before, in manifest deviations
3:165  What! And whenever a disaster smote you — indeed you smote (a disaster) double in comparison to it, (yet) you said: whence (is) this?” Tell (them): “It is from your (own) selves.” Surely, Allah is All-Capable over every thing
3:166  And whatever smote you the day two groups met: so (it is) with Allah’s permission and so that He may know the Believers
3:167  And so that He may know those who have committed hypocrisy. And it was said to them: “Come, fight (in war) in the Way of Allah or defend (the state and its people).” They said: “Had we been conversant with fighting, we would certainly have followed you,” They, some of them (were) nearer to disbelief that day than to Faith. They utter from their mouths what (is) not in their hearts. And Allah knows more of what they conceal
3:168  (It is) those who said of their brethren while they (themselves) stayed back: “If they had obeyed us they would not have been slain.” Say: “Then avert death from your selves if you are truthful.”
3:169  Regard not those who are slain in the Way of Allah as dead, but (as) Living in the presence of their Nourisher-Sustainer. They are being provided provision
3:170  Jubilant of what Allah has bestowed upon them of His bounty and they harbour glad tidings for those who have not joined them from (those who were) around them — that (there is) no fear on them and they shall not grieve
3:171  They harbour glad tidings regarding grace from Allah and bounty and surely Allah does not waste the reward of the Believers
3:172  Those who responded to (the call of) Allah and the Messenger even after whatever disaster befell them; for those of them who did extra good and became obedient (is a) great reward
3:173  Those (Believers) unto whom the (hypocrite) people said: “Verily, the people have gathered for (a fight with) you, therefore be afraid of them.” But it increased them in Faith and they said: “Allah is sufficient to us and (He is) the best Patron.”
3:174  So they returned with grace from Allah and (His) Bounty. No harm touched them and they obeyed what is pleasing unto Allah and Allah is the Possessor of great Bounty
3:175  However that devil would frighten you of his friends, but be not afraid of them, and be mindful of Me if you are Believers
3:176  And must not make you grieve those who hasten in (committing) disbelief. Verily, they shall never harm Allah the least. Allah intends that He does not keep for them (any) share in the Hereafter. And for them is a great punishment
3:177  Verily, those who have purchased disbelief in exchange of Faith, shall never harm Allah at all; and for them is a grievous punishment
3:178  And let not the disbelievers regard that whatever respite We sanction for them is good for them. However We sanction respite for them so that they may increase in sinfulness. And for them is a humiliating punishment
3:179  Allah is not (such) that He may leave the Believers at what you are (now involved) in it, until He distinguishes the wicked from the good. And Allah is not (such) that He may let you know the Ghaib (unseen), rather Allah chooses of His Messengers (for the purpose) whom He thinks proper. So develop Faith in Allah and His Messengers. And if you develop Belief and pay obedience, then, for you (is) a great reward
3:180  And must not regard those, who covetously withhold that which Allah has given them out of His Bounty, (that) this (attitude) is good to them, nay, it is evil to them. Soon they will be collared (with) what they covetously withheld out of it — on the Day of Resurrection. And for Allah is the heritage of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is All-Aware of what you do
3:181  Certainly, Allah has heard the statement of those who said: “Truly, Allah is poor while we are rich people!” Soon We record what they said and their killing of the Prophets without right, and We shall say: “Taste you the torment of Burning
3:182  This is because of that which your hands sent before; and surely, Allah is not too unjust to (His) subjects.”
3:183  Those who said: “Verily, Allah has made a covenant to us that we may not Believe a Messenger until he brings to us an offering which the fire consumes.” Say: "Verily, there came to you Messengers before me with Al-Bayyinat and (even) with what you said; then, for what (reason) did you kill them, if you are truthful?”
3:184  Then if they have belied you, so, definitely, the Messengers were belied (even) before you. They had come with Al-Bayyinat, and Az-Zubur and Al-Kitab-il-Munir
3:185  Every nafs (is) ‘the one who tastes’ death. And it is definite that you shall be paid in full, your rewards, on the Day of Resurrection. And whoever is kept away from the Fire and is made to enter Paradise, so indeed, he became elevated. And this worldly life is not but a providence of deception
3:186  You shall certainly be tested through your wealth and in your selves. And you shall certainly listen to, from those who were given Al-Kitab before you as well as those who committed polytheism, numerous grief-giving comments. And if you persevere patiently and remain mindful (of Allah’s Message) — then verily, this would be a determining factor for (conducting) affairs
3:187  And (remember) when Allah took a covenant from those who were given Al-Kitab that: ‘you must make it evident to mankind and do not hide it’; then they threw it away behind their backs and purchased thereby a meagre sum. Then evil (it is) which they purchase
3:188  Do not think about those who rejoice about what they brought with (themselves) and they (also) love that they may be praised for that which they have not done — so regard them not as ‘rescued from the punishment’. And, for them, (is) a painful punishment
3:189  And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is All-Capable over all things
3:190  Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alteration of night and day, (there are) indeed signs for people of understanding
3:191  Those who transmit (the Message of) Allah, standing, sitting and (lying down) on their sides and ponder in the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): “Our Nourisher-Sustainer! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! So save us from the torment of Fire
3:192  Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Verily You! Whom You admit to the Fire, so indeed You have disgraced him. And there is not (available) for the transgressors (any one) out of the helpers
3:193  Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Verily, we heard a preacher. He gives a call towards Faith: ‘That you should develop Belief in your Nourisher-Sustainer,’ so we have developed Faith. Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Now forgive us our sins and write off from us our evil deeds, and give us death in company of Al-Abrar
3:194  Our Nourisher-Sustainer! And grant us what you promised unto us through Your Messengers, and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Surely, You do not go against (Your) Promise.”
3:195  So responded to them their Nourisher-Sustainer: Certainly I, I will not allow to go waste the work of a worker from amongst you, from amongst male or female. Some of you (are) from some (others). So those who emigrated and were driven out of their homes, and have been persecuted in My Cause, and they indulged in war and were killed, surely I will write off from them their omissions and would surely admit them into Gardens, flow under them rivers — a reward from the Presence of Allah. And Allah! With Him (is found) the excellence of reward
3:196  Must not provide a misunderstanding to you the arrogant movements in the cities of the people who have disbelieved
3:197  (This is just) a brief enjoyment, then their (ultimate) abode is Hell, and a bad resting place
3:198  But those who remained mindful of their Nourisher-Sustainer, for them are gardens, flow under them rivers. (They are) dwellers therein — a reception from the presence of Allah. And whatever is with Allah is the best for Al-Abrar
3:199  And certainly, among the people of Al-Kitab is that who Believes in Allah and ‘what has been delivered towards you and what is delivered towards them ’, having full regard of submission to Allah. They do not purchase at the cost of Ayaat of Allah a meagre sum. Those people: for them, their reward is with their Nourisher-Sustainer. Surely, Allah is swift in accountability
3:200  O you people who have Believed, show steadfastness individually, and show steadfastness in group and guard the territory by stationing military units at vulnerable places, and be mindful of Allah so that you attain success
