O’ mankind, act piously towards your Lord, who created you from a single Human person (Adam), creating from it its mate (Eve), dispersing from both of them many men and women. And act piously towards your Lord- in whose name you appeal to one another- and build strong and positive relationships with your family. Most certainly Allâh is Ever-Watchful over you.
And give to the orphans their wealth, do not substitute your worthless things for their valuables. And do not devour their wealth (by adding it) to your own wealth. Indeed, this is a capital sin.
And If you fear that you might fail to act fairly toward the orphan girls, then marry other women of your choice, two or three or four. But if you fear that you cannot maintain equality among them, then marry one only, or what your right hands possess. This will make it more likely that you will avoid injustice.
And give to the woman whom you marry their dowries as a wedding gift. If they give up willingly a portion of it to you, then it is lawful for you to consume it up, and enjoy it without fear of any harm.
And do not give to the prodigals their property that Allâh has assigned to you to manage. But feed and clothe them from it, speak kindly to them (and prepare for them a kind reception by giving them their property when they reach maturity).
And test well the orphans until they reach the age of marriage. If you perceive in them sound judgment, then deliver to them their property, do not devour it wastefully or hastily, lest they attain to full age. However, if the guardian was self-sufficient, he should abstain generously (from taking any share from the wealth of orphans). But if he is poor, then let him take for himself what is just and reasonable. When you deliver to them their property, take witnesses in their presence. Lo! Sufficient is Allâh in taking account.
For men and woman, there is a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, whether there is little or much of it : (these are) obligatory shares.
If relatives, orphans or destitute people, are present at the time of division, then make provision for them out of it and speak gently to them.
Let those (executors and guardians) have the same concern as they would have for their own if they had left weak offspring behind. Now, therefore, let them act piously towards Allâh and speak right words.
Indeed, those who devour the wealth of the orphans unjustly eat up only a fire into their bellies. They shall be scorched with an intense fire, in which they shall burn.
Allâh commands you concerning your children to give the male the equivalent of the portion of two females. If there are only daughters, two or more, then their share is two-thirds of the inheritance. If there is only one, then her share is half. For the parents, to each one of them is a sixth share of the inheritance if the deceased left children. But if there is no children, and the parents are the only heirs, then his mother will have the third. If the deceased left siblings, then the mother will have the sixth after any bequest he may have made or debt. (All the shares will be distributed) after the payment of legacies and debts. You may not know whether your parents or your children are more beneficial to you. Most assuredly Allâh is All-knowing and All-wise.
Your share is half of what your wives leave if they have no children. But if they have a child, then your share is one fourth of what they leave, after the payment of legacies and debts. The wives will have fourth if you leave no child. But if you leave a child, then their share is eighth of what you leave, after the payment of legacies and debts. If a man or woman leaves neither ascendants nor descendants but has a brother or a sister, then each one of them will have sixth. If there are more than two, they will be sharers in the third, after the payment of legacies and debts, as long as there is no loss is caused to any one. This is a commandment from Allâh. He is All-knowing, Most Forbearing.
These are the limits set by Allâh. Whoever yields to the (Commandments of) Allâh and to (what He has revealed to) His Messenger will be admitted by Him into gardens with rivers flowing beneath. And they will live therein. This is the most ultimate success and the supreme one.
But, whoever refuses to yield to the (Commandments of) Allâh and to (what He has revealed to) His Messenger, and transgresses His Limits, he will be admitted by Him into a Fire to abide therein. And he will be subjected to a disgraceful punishment.
Those women among yours who commit adultery, call to witnesses against them four witnesses from among you. If they testify, confine them to the houses until they die, or Allâh provides them a way out.
The two persons (the man & the woman) who commit adultery among you, punish them both. If they repent and make amends, leave them alone. Most assuredly Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.
Forgiveness granted by Allâh is for those who do evil in ignorance and repent soon afterwards. They are the ones whom Allâh will turn in forgiveness. And Allâh is All-Knowing- All-Wise.
Forgiveness would not be granted for those who commit evil deeds continuously till when death is approaching one of them, then he says: "Verily, I have repented now", or for those who die faithless. These are the ones for whom We have prepared a painful punishment.
O' you who Live by Faith! It is not lawful for you to inherit women against their own will, or to create difficulties for them in order to force them to give up a portion of what you have given them in order to obtain divorce, unless they have clearly committed adultery. So treat them with kindness and respect. If you dislike them, you may dislike something wherein Allâh has placed a lot of goodness.
However, if you intended to replace a wife with another one, and you have given one of them a heap of gold, then do not take from it anything. Would you take it wrongfully without any right, and with an apparent transgression?.
Would it possible for you to take it since both of you have gone in to each other, and they have taken from you a solemn covenant?.
Do not get married to those women whom your fathers got married, except for what has already passed. Most assuredly that tradition was debauchery, hateful and evil way.
It is forbidden for you to marry your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your paternal aunts, the daughters of your brother, the daughters of your sister, your foster mothers that have suckled you, your foster milk suckling sisters, the mothers of your wives, your step daughters who are in your guardianship, born of your wives to whom you have gone in - but there is no iniquity upon you if you have not gone in them to marry their daughters - the wives of your sons who spring from your own loins, and two sisters in wedlock at the same time, except for what has already passed. Most assuredly Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
It is also forbidden for you to marry the women whom are already married, except for those (captives & slaves) whom your right hands possess. This is the ordinance of Allâh for you. So lawful to you are all the women beyond those mentioned as long as you seek them with your property in honest wedlock, not debauchery. Consequently, whoever you like among them, you must give them their dowries which decreed for them. There is no blame upon you about what you mutually agree after what is appointed of the dowry. Most assuredly Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
Whoever among you is not able to afford to marry free, monotheistic woman, then let him marry from the monotheistic maids whom your right hands possess. Allâh is All-Aware of your Faith as you are one from another. So marry them with the permission of their masters, and give them their dowries according to what is reasonable if they are chaste, not committing fornication, or taking secret paramours. However, when they are sheltered in marriage, then, if they commit adultery, their punishment will be half of that for free women. This is for him among you who fears falling into evil. But it is better for you to resort to self-restraint. And Allâh is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
Allâh wants to make clear (what is lawful and what is unlawful) to you in order to guide you to the ways of those before you and to grant you forgiveness. He is All-knowing and All-wise.
Allâh intends to grant you forgiveness while those who follow their worldly pleasures want to see you deviating tremendously (from the path of truth).
And Allâh intends to lighten the burden for you, for man was created weak.
O' you who live by Faith! do not devour one another's wealth wrongfully unless it is in trade by mutual agreement. And do not slay one another. Most certainly Allâh is the Most Merciful to you.
And whoever does that through aggression and injustice, We will drive him into the Fire. That is easy for Allâh.
If you avoid the capital sins that are forbidden to you, We will deliver you from all the consequences of your sins, and admit you into an honorable entrance ( Al-Jannah).
Do not covet the thing in which Allâh has made some of you exceed others. Men will have the benefits of what they have gained. Women will have the benefits of what they have gained. So ask Allâh of His bounty. Indeed, Allâh is Ever All-Knowing of everything.
To every one, We have appointed heirs to what is left by parents and relatives. Those with whom your right hand was pledged, give them their share. Most assuredly Allâh is Ever a Witness over all things.
Men are the protectors and maintainers of women because Allâh has made some of them to excel others, and and because they expend on them of their property. So the righteous women are faithfully obedient, guarding in the absence of the husband what Allâh orders them to be guarded. However, those women from whom you sense disloyalty and misbehaving, admonish them first, (if they persist), abandon their beds, (but if they still persist), then you may resort to disciplining. If it happens that they return to obedience, then do not seek a way against them. Most assuredly Allâh is Ever Exalted and Grand.
If you anticipate a dissension between the couple, then appoint an arbiter from his family and an arbiter from hers. If both of them want reconciliation, Allâh will create harmony between them. Most assuredly Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Aware.
Worship Allâh and ascribe nothing as partner to Him. Show kindness and respect to the parents, relatives, orphans, the poor, near and distant neighbors, the fellow-traveler, the wayfarer and the slaves whom your right hands possess. Allâh does not demonstrate His own love for the one who is arrogant and vainglorious,
(Or) those who are niggardly, promoting parsimony among people, and hiding what Allâh has given them of His bounty. We have prepared for those who live in spiritual darkness a disgraceful chastisement,
(or) those who expend their wealth to impress the people, and do not believe in Allâh and the Last Day. Whoever chooses Satan to be his companion - what an evil companion he chooses!
What harm could have come to them if they had believed in Allâh and the Last Day, and expended of what Allâh bestowed upon them?. Allâh is All- Aware of what they do.
Most assuredly Allâh would never ever do injustice even as much as the weight of an atom. If there is a single righteous deed, He multiplies it, and gives a great reward from Himself.
What if We bring a witness from each nation; and We bring you, (Muhammad), a witness against these people?.
On that day, those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth and disobey the Messenger will wish that the earth would be leveled with them. And they will not be able to hide any word from Allâh.
O' you who Live by Faith! do not approach Prayer when you are drunken so that you may know what you utter, or when you have a seminal discharge till you wash your whole body with water- unless you are on a journey- However, If it happens that you are unable to find water when you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you coming out of the privy, or being in contact with women, then betake yourselves to clean sand and rub therewith your faces and hands. Most assuredly Allâh is Oft-Pardoning- Oft-Forgiving.
Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the Scripture?. They purchase error and desire that you deviate from the path of truth.
Allâh has full knowledge of who your enemies are. And Allâh is Sufficient as a Guardian and sufficient as a Supporter.
Among the Jews are those who distort words through false interpretation and say: “We hear and we disobey”, (adding): "Listen to us!” Distorting with their tongues and slandering (your own) faith and beliefs. if only they had said: "We hear and obey. And "help us perceive the intended meaning", it would have been better for them and more appropriate. But Allâh has excluded them from His Mercy for their persistent and purposeful denial of the Truth. They have so little faith!
O’ you who were given the Scripture! yield to what We have revealed (to Muhammad) since it establishes the Truth which you already possess, before We wipe out faces and turn them toward their backs, or We cursed them as We cursed the violators of the Sabbath. The Commandment of Allâh is always executed.
Surely Allâh does not forgive that should a partner be associated with Him. He forgives all besides that to whom He wills. Whoever sets up a partner with Allâh has indeed committed an unpardonable sin.
Have you not seen those who attribute purity to themselves? For it is only Allâh Who purifies whom He wills. None will be wronged, not even a speck on a date seed.
See, how they attribute falsehood to Allâh- this by itself is an unpardonable sin.
Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the Scripture? They believe in superstition and in the fabled gods, saying unto the Polytheists that they are more spiritually enlightened than those who adhere to absolute monotheism.
These are the ones who have been cursed by Allâh. And whoever is cursed by Allâh, you will never find for him any helper.
Or have they a share in the Kingdom? If so, they would not give the people even a speck on a date seed.
Or do they envy the people for what Allâh has given them of His Bounty? Indeed, We gave to the children of Abraham the Scripture and wisdom, along with a mighty kingdom.
Yet some believed in him while others walked away from him. And Gehenna is sufficient as a torment!
We shall cast into the (Eternal) Fire all those who voluntarily and consciously refuse to yield to the Revelation Knowledge which We have revealed. As often as their skins are burnt completely, We shall replace them with fresh skins so that they may (eternally) taste the punishment (of the burning). Most assuredly Allâh is Almighty, All-Wise.
Those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts, We will admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing beneath to abide therein. They will have therein purified spouses. And We will admit them into a cool shade.
Most assuredly Allâh commands that you should render back the trusts to their owners, and that when you judge between the people, you must judge with justice. Verily graceful is what Allâh Almighty admonishes you. Most certainly Allâh is All-Hearing- All-Seeing.
O' you who live by Faith! Yield (to the Commandments of) Allâh and (to what He has revealed to) His Messenger, as well as to the (command of) those who are in authority among you. And when you differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allâh and His Messenger if you believe in Allâh and the Last Day with absolute certainty. This would be more effective and a better way to permanently settle a dispute.
Have you not seen those who claim that they believe in what was revealed to you and in what was revealed before you? They desire to go for judgment to one of their fabled gods while they have been ordered to renounce them. But Satan desires to deceive them into going far away from the path of truth.
And when they are asked to come for judgment to what Allâh has revealed to the Messenger, you will see those who indulge in hypocrisy turning away from you with utter aversion.
How would it be if a disaster strikes them on account of what their hands have sent forth? Then they would come to you, swearing by Allâh Almighty that they were seeking only kindness and conciliation.
Only Allâh has full knowledge of what is stored up in their hearts, so leave them alone, preach and communicate with them passionately and effectively concerning themselves.
We only sent Messengers to be obeyed by the will of Allâh. If only those (who indulge in hypocrisy) had come to you after wronging themselves, seeking the forgiveness of Allâh and asking the Messenger to pray for their forgiveness, they would have certainly found Allâh Oft-Forgiving and Most Merciful.
But no, by your Lord! They will not be of those whose Faith is unfeigned till they ask you to judge any dispute arises between them, and they will not find any discomfort in their hearts and minds against your decision, and will submit with full submission.
If We had commanded them to sacrifice their lives or abandon their homes, they would not have done it except for a few of them. Yet, if they had done what they were exhorted to do, it would certainly have been far better for them and more strengthening.
And We would surely have given them from Ourselves a mighty reward.
And We would surely have inspired them to the Straight Path.
And whoever yields (to the Commandments of) Allâh and (to what He has revealed to) His Messenger, such will be in the company of those on whom Allâh has bestowed favors upon them from among the Prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the righteous. How excellent these companions are!
Such is the bounty from Allâh and Sufficient is Allâh as Omniscient.
O' you who live by Faith! remain vigilant and go forth either in groups or together.
Verily, there are some of you who would linger behind from fighting. Then if a misfortune befalls you, he says: ”Allâh indeed bestowed a favor upon me as I was not present with them”.
But if a bounty from Allâh befell you, he would say - as if there were no friendly relation between you and him- "Oh! Would that I had been with them, so that I might have achieved a great success!
Now, therefore, let those who have voluntarily and consciously abandoned this worldly life in favour of the Hereafter fight in the cause of Allâh. And whoever fights in the cause of Allâh- whether he attains martyrdom or achieves victory- We will honour him with a mighty reward.
What prevents you from fighting in the cause of Allâh, and for the deliverance of the oppressed men, women and children?. They cry out: ‘O, our Lord, bring us forth from this town, whose inhabitants are iniquitous. And appoint for us, out of Your grace, a protector and supporter.
Those who live by Faith fight for the cause of Allâh, whereas those who are spiritually dead and blind fight for the cause of Satan. Now, therefore, fight against the supporters of Satan. Indeed, the (evil) scheme of Satan is ever weak.
Have you not seen those who were told to hold back their hands from fighting, to establish the regular Prayer and pay Zakāt? Then, as soon as fighting is ordained for them, a group of people among them feared (those aggressive) people as they would fear (the punishment of) Allâh, or (even) with stronger fear. They say: "Our Lord, Why have you ordained for us fighting?. If only You grant us respite to a near term". Say: "Short is the pleasure of this worldly life, whereas the Hereafter is far better for the one who acts piously”. And none of you will be wronged (by the Lord), not even as much as a hair on a date-seed.
And wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you were in strong rock fortresses with lofty walls set on high. When a single righteous deed befalls them, they say: "This is from Allâh". But when a single evil deed befalls them, they say: "This is from you, (Muhammad)". Say: “All things are from Allâh". What is wrong with these people that they could hardly understand a word?.
And whatever good thing befalls you, it is from Allâh, and whatever bad thing befalls you, it is from yourself. We have sent you as a Messenger to mankind. And Allâh is sufficient as Witness.
And whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allâh indeed. Whoever walks away (needs to know that) We have not sent you as a guardian over them.
They say: "We obey”. But as soon as they leave you, some of them spend all night planning against what you say. Allâh records what they plan by night. Now, therefore, don't give attention to them and depend on Allâh with full trust. And Allâh is All-Sufficient as a Trustee.
Do they not then ponder over the Qur’ān? Had it been from other than Allâh, they would have found therein much inconsistency.
And when there comes to them a piece of news of security or fear, they announce it in public. If only they had referred it to the Messenger or to those charged with authority among them. Surely those of them who can extract the truth from it would have tested and used it more properly. And Had it not been for the grace of Allâh upon you, you would have certainly followed the Satan- except for a few.
Now, therefore, fight in the cause of Allâh. You are not made responsible except for yourself. Motivate and inspire those who live by Faith to fight. It may be that Allâh will restrain the power of those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth. Lo! Allâh is much more Powerful and Sufficiently Powerful to give an exemplary punishment.
And whoever intercedes for a good cause shall have a share in its privilege, and whoever intercedes for an evil cause shall have a share in the burden. Allâh is Ever Keeper over all things.
And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet with a better one or at least return it. Most assuredly Allâh Allâh ever takes account of all things.
Allâh! There is no other god beside Him. He will certainly gather you all together on the Day of Resurrection which is definitely inevitable. Who is more truthful in his word than Allâh?.
Why should you be divided into two different groups concerning those who indulge in hypocrisy? Allâh has cast them back to spiritual darkness as a result of what they have gained. Do you presumably intend simply to save those from whom Allâh has held back His light of inspiration?. And from whoever Allâh holds back the light of His inspiration , you will not find for him a way.
They wish you would renounce your faith as they have renounced theirs so that you may be all alike. Now, therefore, make no friendship with them until they emigrate in the cause of Allâh. However, if they turn back to (hostility), then seize them and slay them wherever you encounter them (in the battlefield), and take neither friend nor helper from among them,
Except for those who are allies of a people you are bound with in a peace treaty or those who come to you with no intention of fighting either you or their own people. Had Allâh willed, He would have empowered them to fight you. So, if they hold aloof from you, refrain from fighting against you and come out for peace, then Allâh does not allow you to fight against them.
You will find others who seek security from you (by making a false profession of faith), and from their own people (by worshiping whatever they worship). Whenever the temptation of Apostasy arises, they plunge into it. If they do not keep aloof from you, nor do they come out for peace, nor do they hold their hands, then seize them and slay them wherever you encounter them (in the battlefield). Against these people, We have given you full authority over them.
It is not possible that a monotheistic believer to kill another except by mistake. And whoever kills a monotheistic believer by accident must free a monotheistic slave and pay restitution (blood-money) to the family of the victim unless they remit it as alms. However, if the victim, he himself is a believer, and belongs to a people who are at war with you, then the murderer must free a monotheistic slave. If the victim belongs to people with whom you have a peace treaty, then the murderer must pay the restitution (blood-money) to the family of the victim and free a monotheistic slave. If then the murderer is unable to find a slave to free, then he will atone by fasting two consecutive months in order to seek repentance from Allâh. Allâh is Ever All-Knowing- All-Wise.
And whoever kills a monotheistic believer intentionally, his requital shall be Hellfire to abide therein. Lo! the wrath and the curse of Allâh are upon him. And a vehement chastisement is prepared for him.
O' you who live by Faith! when you go forth to fight in the cause of Allâh, investigate properly before you start fighting, and do not say to any one who offers peace: “You are not a believer”- seeking the spoils of this worldly life. But with Allâh there are infinite spoils. You too were such before, then Allâh bestowed His favors upon you. So investigate properly! Most assuredly Allâh is Ever Well-Aware of whatever you do.
Those Monotheistic Believers who stay home- except those with valid excuses- are by no means equal to those who strive and fight in the cause of Allâh with their wealth and their lives. Allâh has preferred in grades those who strive and fight in the cause of Allâh with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). To each, Allâh has promised good reward. But Allâh has preferred those who strive and fight in His cause above those who stay home by much greater reward.
Degrees of rank bestowed by Him, as well as forgiveness and mercy. For Allâh is Ever Oft-Forgiving- Most Merciful.
Indeed, when the Angels take the souls of those who have wronged themselves, rebuking them: “What were you after?”. They reply: "We were weak and oppressed on earth". The Angels ask: “Was not the earth of Allâh vast enough for you to emigrate therein?". These are ones whose eternal home is Hellfire - What a dreadful journey's end!
Except those who are really weak and oppressed among men, women and children, who lack strength and courage to change their lives, or to find a way to emigrate.
For these, there is a hope that Allâh will pardon them. Allâh is Ever Oft Pardoning, Oft-Forgiving.
Whoever emigrates for the cause of Allâh will find many dwelling places and abundant resources on the earth. Whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allâh and His Messenger, then death overtakes him, (can rest assured that) his reward has already been secured with Allâh. And Allâh is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
When you travel through the land, you would not be at fault if you shorten the Prayer; if you fear that those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth may attack you. Indeed, they are your open enemy.
When you, (O’ Muhammad), are among them, and you call them for Prayer, ask only a party of them to stand with you to Prayer and let them carry their arms. Then when they have performed their prostration, let them take their positions in the rear and then ask another party who has not yet prayed to come forward and pray with you, letting them be vigilant and armed. Those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth would wish to see you neglecting your arms and belongings so that they may launch a surprise attack against you. You would not be at fault if you lay aside your arms due to injuries caused by heavy rain or due to illness. But you should always take your precautions. Most assuredly Allâh has prepared for those who are spiritually dead and blind a disgraceful punishment.
Therefore when you complete your Prayer, celebrate the praise of Allâh and declare His glory while standing or sitting or lying down on your sides. When you are safe, then establish the regular Prayer. Indeed, Prayer is enjoined on those who live by Faith at specific times.
And do not slacken in pursuing the enemy- If it happens that you suffer, (be sure that) they suffer even as you suffer, and you expect to receive from Allâh what they can never hope. And Allâh is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise.
Verily We have revealed to you the Book with the truth so that you may judge between people in accordance with what Allâh has shown you. So refute strongly the (argument of) the traitors.
And seek the Forgiveness of Allâh! Most certainly Allâh is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Do not be an advocate on behalf of those who act unfaithfully towards their own selves. Verily Allâh does not demonstrate His own love for the one who is treacherous and sinful.
They may hide their evil deeds from the people, but they cannot hide them from Allâh. He is with them by His Knowledge when they harbor at night ideas, which He disapproves. And Allâh ever encompasses what they do.
Ah! You are of those who may argue on their behalf in this worldly life. But who will venture to argue with Allâh on their behalf on the Day of Resurrection, or who will then be their advocate?.
And whoever commits evil, or wrongs himself, then implores Allâh for forgiveness, will find Allâh Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
And whoever commits an evil deed- it is only to his own loss. And Allâh is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise.
And whoever commits an evil or sinful deed and then casts it upon the innocent person, he has thereby burdened himself with calumny and a flagrant sin.
And were it not for the grace of Allâh upon you, as well as His Mercy, a party of them would have certainly devised a plot to bring you down to ruin. However, they cannot bring aught down to ruin but their own selves nor can they harm you. And Allâh has revealed to you this Glorious Qur’ān, given you the spirit of wisdom, and taught you that which you had no knowledge (of it before). Ever great is the grace of Allâh to you.
There is no good in most of their secret talks except (in his) who enjoins voluntary almsgiving, kindness or reconciliation between people. Whoever does this, seeking the good pleasure of Allâh, We shall give him a mighty reward.
And whoever opposes the Messenger after the Knowledge of Truth has been distinctly conveyed to him, and willfully follows a path other than that of those who Live by Faith, We will let him pursue the path he has chosen for himself, and cast him into the Gehenna - what a dreadful shelter!
Surely Allâh does not forgives setting up partners in worship with Him, but forgives all besides that to whom He wills. Verily whoever sets up a partner with Allâh has gone far away from the path of truth.
The Polytheists implore and pray to nothing but female deities besides Allâh. Actually, they implore and pray to none but rebellious devil,
Whom Allâh has cursed for having said: ‘Most surely I will take a certain fixed portion of Your servants.
I will certainly deceive them into going away from the path of truth, and stir up vain desires in them. I will certainly order them to slit the ears of cattle and to change the true nature that was created by Allâh. And whoever takes Satan for a patron has certainly incurred a great loss upon himself.
Satan gives them (false) promises and stirs up vain desires in them. However, the promises of Satan are nothing but manifest delusions.
For these people, their abode will be Gehenna. They will not be able to find a way to escape from it.
Those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts, We will admit them into gardens with rivers flowing beneath to abide therein. Such is the truthful promise of Allâh. Who is more truthful in word than Allâh?.
Entering Al-Jannah will not be in accordance with your own whims or the whims of the people of the Book. Whoever does an evil work will be requited for it and will not find for himself besides Allâh a guardian or a benefactor.
Any monotheistic believer, male or female, does righteous acts will enter Al-Jannah, and will not be wronged, not even as much as a hair on a date-seed.
Who is better in Faith than the one who submits (himself entirely to) Allâh, while pursuing righteousness and perfection, and following the creed of Abraham, the (Genuine) Monotheistic Faith? Allâh took Abraham as a close friend.
Unto Allâh belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth. And Allâh is Ever Encompassing all things.
They seek your legal advice about the rights of women. Say: “Allâh has already instructed you about their rights, and that which is recited to you in the Book concerning the rights of the orphan girls whom you give not what is prescribed for them and yet whom you desire to marry, as also concerning the weak among children, and that you ought to deal justly with orphans. Consequently, whatever good thing you do, (be sure) Allâh is Ever All-Aware of it.”
When a wife fears cruelty or desertion on the part of her husband, then the couple would not be at fault if they put forward the terms for peace between them. Reconciliation is better although greed is part of human nature! If you seek to do good and act piously, (then you can rest assured that) Allâh is indeed Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.
You will never ever be able to deal fairly with more than one wife, no matter how hard you strive. Now, therefore, do not be completely inclined to one while leaving the other one hanging in midair. However, If you make amends and act piously, (you can rest assured that) Allâh is indeed Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
But If they decided to separate, Allâh would enrich both of them from His bounties. And Allâh is Ever All-Sufficient, All-Wise.
Unto Allâh belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth. Indeed, We had commended the People of the Book before you to act piously towards Allâh. So we commend you the same thing. However, if you refuse to Yield to the Truth (then you’ll need to know that) whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth does belong to Allâh, and that Allâh is Self-sufficient, Worthy of all praise.
Unto Allâh belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth. And Allâh is All-Sufficient as a Trustee.
If He wills He can (easily) terminate you, O’ people, and bring others instead of you. Lo! Allâh is Ever All-Potent over that.
And whoever desires the reward of this worldly life, (let him be sure that) Allâh possesses the reward of this worldly life, as well as the reward of Hereafter. And Allâh is Ever All-Hearer, All-Seer.
O' you who live by Faith, be strict in maintaining justice. And be witnesses for Allâh even though it might be against your own selves, or your parents, or close relatives, whether the one under suspicion is rich or poor. Allâh must be given priority over them. Now, therefore, do not let your own whims lead you to act inequitably. And If you hide the truth or evade it, then (you’ll need to know that) Allâh is Ever Well-Acquainted with whatsoever you do.
O' you who live by Faith! place your faith in Allâh and His Messenger, as well as in the Qur'an which He has revealed to His Messenger, and also in the Scripture which He revealed before. So whoever is tempted to reject Allâh, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers and the Last Day, has surely gone far away from the path of truth.
Indeed, those who adhere to Faith, then renounce their faith and then again adhere to Faith, then renounce their faith,- only increasing in Apostasy - Allâh will neither forgive them nor show them where to go.
Let those who indulge in hypocrisy know that they will be subjected to a painful punishment (in the Hereafter).
They take those who are spiritually dead and blind for friends instead of those who Live by Faith. Is it glory they seek among them? Most certainly All Glory belongs unto Allâh.
It has already been revealed to you in the Qur’ān that whenever you hear people denying and ridiculing the Verses of Allâh, do not sit with them unless they start to talk of other things, or else you yourselves will become like them. Lo! Allâh will gather those who indulge in hypocrisy and those who are spiritually dead and blind all together into Gehenna.
Those who indulge in hypocrisy watch to see what he will happen to you: if you gain a victory from Allâh, they say: "Were we not with you?" But if those who are spiritually dead and blind have the opportunity for success, they will say: “Had we not prevailed over you, and protected you from the Monotheistic Believers?" So Allâh will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection. And Allâh will never let those who are spiritually dead and blind be prevailed over those who live by Faith.
Indeed, Those who indulge in hypocrisy think that they can beguile Allâh. But it is He Who will render them for their attempt. When they stand up for Prayer, they stand up lazily. Lo! They do it only to be seen by men. And they do not celebrate the praise of Allâh but a little,
Swaying in between (right and wrong), belonging neither to these nor to those. And and whom Allah allows to go astray, you will not find a way for him.
O' you who live by Faith! do not take those who are spiritually dead and blind as allies or friends instead of those who live by Faith. Do you want to give Allâh a manifest proof against you?.
Indeed, those who indulge in hypocrisy will be in the lowest depths of the Fire, and you will find no helper for them;
Except for those who repent, make amends, hold fast to Allâh, and perform their duties towards Allâh faithfully, then they will be with those who live by Faith. And Allâh will grant those who live by Faith a great reward.
Why would Allâh chastise you if you are grateful and devout? And Allâh is Ever All-Appreciative, All-Knowing.
Allâh does not demonstrate His own love for public utterance of anything evil- except by one who has been wronged. And Allâh is Ever All-Hearer- All-Knowing.
If you you do good openly or in secret, or pardon others for their faults, (then you can rest assured that) Allâh is Ever Oft-Pardoning- All-Powerful.
Indeed, those who have no Faith in Allâh and His Messengers, and desire to make distinction between Allâh and His Messengers, and say: "We believe in some and reject others”, seeking to pursue a path in between -
Those in truth are the ones who have no tendency to live by Faith. And We have prepared for them an extremely disgraceful punishment.
Those who place their faith in Allâh and His Messengers, and make no distinction between any of them, Allâh will surely give them their rewards in full. For Allâh is Ever Oft-Forgiving- Most Merciful.
The People of the Book ask you to bring down a book upon them from the heavens. Indeed, they asked Moses for even greater than that. They said: ‘Show us Allâh in person’. So a thunderbolt seized them for their iniquitous deeds. Then they took the Calf for worship after having received the Full knowledge of Truth. Yet, We pardoned all this. And We gave Moses a Decisive Argument.
We raised the Mount (Sinai) high above them (to warn them against) their covenant. We said to them: ‘Enter the gate humbly’. We also warned them: ‘Do not violate the Sabbath’. And We took from them a solemn covenant.
(Allâh has deprived them of His blessing) because of their breaking of their covenant, for their persistent denial of the Revelations of Allâh, for unjustly killing the prophets and for saying: ‘Our hearts are enveloped‘. In fact, Allâh has set a seal on their hearts for their persistent and purposeful denial of the Truth, and for their little Faith.
(Likewise Allâh has deprived them of His blessing) for their persistent and purposeful denial of the Truth, and for the hideous calumny which they utter against Mary,
And for their saying that they killed the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the Apostle of Allâh. And yet they did not kill him and neither did they crucify him, but so it was made to appear to them. Verily, those who differ therein are utterly confused. They have no definite knowledge of it except pursuit of a conjecture.They certainly did not kill him.
In fact, Allâh has raised him to Himself. And Allâh is Ever All-Powerful- All-Wise.
(After the return of Jesus), there is not one of the People of the Book but will believe in Jesus before his death. And on Day of Resurrection, he will bear witness against them.
And because of the iniquity of those who are Jews, We have forbidden them certain good things that were lawful for them, and because of their barring many people from the path of Allâh,
And because of their taking usury which was prohibited for them, and their devouring the property of people wrongfully. So We have prepared for the impious among them a painful punishment.
There are among them some who are firmly and deeply planted in the spiritual knowledge and enlightenment, and the devout who believe in what has been revealed to you and that which was revealed before you: And (especially) those who establish the regular Prayer and pay Zakāt and believe in Allâh and the Last Day, they are the ones to whom We shall give a mighty reward.
Verily We have revealed to you just as We revealed to Noah and the Prophets (who came) after him. And We (also) revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Descendants, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron and Solomon. And unto David We gave the Psalms.
We inspired other Messengers whom We have mentioned to you before, as well as others Messengers whom We have not mentioned to you. Allâh spoke directly, without mediation, to Moses.
(All these) Messengers were sent to give glad tidings and to deliver a severe warning so that people will not have any argument of excuse before Allâh after the Messengers had been sent to them. And Allâh is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.
Lo! Allâh testifies that whatever He has revealed to you, He has revealed it with His Knowledge, and the Angels also testify to it. Sufficient is Allâh as a Witness.
Indeed, as for those who have no tendency to live by Faith, and hinder the people from the path of Allâh, they have gone far away from the path of Truth.
Surely those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth, and consciously abandon the Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims- it is not for Allâh to forgive them, neither to guide them to any path,
Except for the path that leads to Gehenna wherein they will live forever . And that is ever easy for Allâh.
O’ mankind, the Messenger has indeed come to you with Knowledge of the Truth from your Lord. So it is for your own benefit to believe in him. But If you persistently refuse to yield to the Truth, (then you’ll need to know that) whatsoever is in the heavens or on the earth belongs unto Allâh. And He is Ever All-Knowing- All-Wise.
O’ People of the Book! do not exceed the limits in your Faith or utter aught concerning Allâh except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was not more than a Messenger of Allâh and His Word, which He sent to Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him. Now, therefore, affirm your faith in Allâh and His Messengers.And do not say: "Three". It is better for you to refrain (from believing in the Trinity). Indeed, Allâh is but One True God. Exalted is He above having a son. Unto Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And Allâh is All-Sufficient as a Trustee.
The Messiah (himself) would never disdain to be a servant of Allâh, nor would the Angels who are near to Him. And whoever disdains the worship of Allâh and displays an arrogant attitude, Allâh will gather them all together to Himself,
Then, as for those who Live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts, He will pay them their rewards in full and give them more out of His bounty. As for those who disdain and display an arrogant attitude, He will chastise them with a painful punishment. So they will not find for themselves, other than Allâh, either a guardian or helper.
O’ mankind! Indeed, there has come to you a decisive argument from your Lord. And We have sent down to you a brilliant light- (this Qur’ān).
Then as for those who have Absolute Faith in Allâh and hold fast to Him, He will admit them into a mercy and grace from Him and lead them into Himself on a right path.
They seek your legal advice. Say: “Allâh has already instructed you about the dead one who has neither parents nor children. If a man dies, leaving a sister, but no child, she will have half the inheritance. If she dies first, then he will inherit her if she left no children. If there are two sisters, they will have two-thirds of the inheritance. If the siblings are men and women, the male will get twice the of the female". Allâh makes things clear to you so that you will not be deceived into going away from the truth. And Allâh has the full knowledge of everything.
