47:1  Those who disbelieve and repel from the path of God—He nullifies their works
47:2  While those who believe, and work righteousness, and believe in what was sent down to Muhammad—and it is the truth from their Lord—He remits their sins, and relieves their concerns
47:3  That is because those who disbelieve follow falsehoods, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord. God thus cites for the people their examples
47:4  When you encounter those who disbelieve, strike at their necks. Then, when you have routed them, bind them firmly. Then, either release them by grace, or by ransom, until war lays down its burdens. Had God willed, He could have defeated them Himself, but He thus tests some of you by means of others. As for those who are killed in the way of God, He will not let their deeds go to waste
47:5  He will guide them, and will improve their state of mind
47:6  And will admit them into Paradise, which He has identified for them
47:7  O you who believe! If you support God, He will support you, and will strengthen your foothold
47:8  But as for those who disbelieve, for them is perdition, and He will waste their deeds
47:9  That is because they hated what God revealed, so He nullified their deeds
47:10  Have they not journeyed through the earth and seen the consequences for those before them? God poured destruction upon them, and for the unbelievers is something comparable
47:11  That is because God is the Master of those who believe, while the disbelievers have no master
47:12  God will admit those who believe and do good deeds into gardens beneath which rivers flow. As for those who disbelieve, they enjoy themselves, and eat as cattle eat, and the Fire will be their dwelling
47:13  How many a town was more powerful than your town which evicted you? We destroyed them, and there was no helper for them
47:14  Is he who stands upon evidence from his Lord, like someone whose evil deed is made to appear good to him? And they follow their own desires
47:15  The likeness of the Garden promised to the righteous: in it are rivers of pure water, and rivers of milk forever fresh, and rivers of wine delightful to the drinkers, and rivers of strained honey. And therein they will have of every fruit, and forgiveness from their Lord. Like one abiding in the Fire forever, and are given to drink boiling water, that cuts-up their bowels
47:16  Among them are those who listen to you, but when they leave your presence, they say to those given knowledge, 'What did he say just now?' Those are they whose hearts God has sealed, and they follow their own desires
47:17  As for those who are guided, He increases them in guidance, and He has granted them their righteousness
47:18  Are they just waiting until the Hour comes to them suddenly? Its tokens have already come. But how will they be reminded when it has come to them
47:19  Know that there is no god but God, and ask forgiveness for your sin, and for the believing men and believing women. God knows your movements, and your resting-place
47:20  Those who believe say, 'If only a chapter is sent down.' Yet when a decisive chapter is sent down, and fighting is mentioned in it, you see those in whose hearts is sickness looking at you with the look of someone fainting at death. So woe to them
47:21  Obedience and upright speech. Then, when the matter is settled, being true to God would have been better for them
47:22  If you turn away, you are likely to make mischief on earth, and sever your family ties
47:23  Those are they whom God has cursed. He made them deaf, and blinded their sight
47:24  Will they not ponder the Quran? Or are there locks upon their hearts
47:25  Those who reverted after the guidance became clear to them—Satan has enticed them, and has given them latitude.
47:26  That is because they said to those who hated what God has revealed, 'We will obey you in certain matters.' But God knows their secret thoughts
47:27  How about when the angels take them at death, beating their faces and their backs
47:28  That is because they pursued what displeases God, and they disliked His approval, so He nullified their works
47:29  Do those in whose hearts is sickness think that God will not expose their malice
47:30  Had We willed, We could have shown them to you, and you would have recognized them by their marks. Yet you will recognize them by their tone of speech. And God knows your actions
47:31  We will certainly test you, until We know those among you who strive, and those who are steadfast, and We will test your reactions
47:32  Those who disbelieve, and hinder from the path of God, and oppose the Messenger after guidance has become clear to them—they will not hurt God in the least, but He will nullify their deeds
47:33  O you who believe! obey God, and obey the Messenger, and do not let your deeds go to waste
47:34  Those who disbelieve, and hinder from God's path, and then die as disbelievers—God will not forgive them
47:35  So do not waver and call for peace while you have the upper hand. God is with you, and He will not waste your efforts
47:36  The life of this word is nothing but play and pastime. But if you have faith and lead a righteous life, He will grant you your rewards, and He will not ask you for your possessions
47:37  Were He to ask you for it, and press you, you would become tightfisted, and He would expose your unwillingness
47:38  Here you are, being called to spend in the cause of God. Among you are those who withhold; but whoever withholds is withholding against his own soul. God is the Rich, while you are the needy. And if you turn away, He will replace you with another people, and they will not be like you
