Surely, Allah has given to you (O Muhammad) a clear victory (treaty of Hudaibiyah),
so that Allah may forgive your past as well as future sins, complete His Favor on you, and guide you to the Right Way;
and Allah may offer you with strong help.
It is He Who has sent down the tranquility into the hearts of the believers so that they may add more faith to their present faith. And to Allah belong the forces of the heavens and the earth. Allah is the All-Knower, the All-Wise.
(For good deeds) He may admit the believing men and the believing women to gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to abide in it forever and to compensate them from their sins, and that is the supreme success with Allah;
and He may punish the hypocritical men and women, and also the polytheist men and women, who thought evil thoughts about Allah. For them there is a disgraceful punishment and the anger of Allah is upon them. He has cursed them, prepared hell for them, and worst indeed is that destination.
And to Allah belong the forces of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is the All-Powerful, the All-Wise
Surely, We have sent you (O Muhammad) as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a Warner,
so that you people may believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that you may assist him, honor him, and glorify (Allah’s) praises morning and afternoon.
Surely, those who gave allegiance to you (O Muhammad), indeed they gave allegiance to Allah. The authority of Allah was over their hands. Then whoever will break its pledge, will break only its own, and whoever will fulfill what it has pledged with Allah, He will bestow a great reward to it.
Those of the Bedouins who stayed behind will say to you: “Our possessions and our families occupied us, so ask forgiveness for us.” They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say: “Who then has any power (to intervene) on your behalf with Allah, if He intends to hurt you or intends to benefit you? Nay, but Allah is All-Aware of what you do.
Nay, but you thought that the Messenger and the believers would never return to their families; and that was made seem fair in their hearts. You thought evil thoughts and you became a useless people for destruction.”
Whoever does not believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), then surely, We have prepared a blazing fire for the disbelievers.
And to Allah belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, He forgives whom He wills, and punishes whom He wills. And Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.
When you set forth to take them to the spoils (of war), those who stayed behind will say: “Allow us to follow you.” They want to change Allah’s Words. Say: “You shall not follow us. Allah has said this before.” They will say: “Nay, you envy us.” But they don’t understand except a little.
Say (O Muhammad) to the Bedouins who stayed behind: “You shall be called to fight against a people with great warfare, then either you will fight them or they shall surrender. Then if you obey, Allah will give you a good reward, but if you turn away as you did turn away before, He will punish you with a painful punishment.”
There is no blame or sin on the blind, nor there is blame or sin on the lame, nor there is blame or sin on the sick (excused not to go to war). Whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), He will admit to gardens beneath which rivers flow (Paradise); and whoever turns back, He will punish with a painful punishment.
Indeed, Allah was pleased with the believers when they gave the allegiance to you (O Muhammad) under the tree. He knew what was in their hearts, He sent down the tranquility upon them, and He rewarded them with a near victory
and abundant spoils which they will capture. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
Allah has Promised you abundant spoils which you will capture, and He has hastened these (spoils of Khaibar) for you. He has restrained the hands of people (enemy) from you so that it may be a sign for the believers and that He may guide you to the Right Way.
And others (victories and booty Promised) which are not yet within your power over it, indeed Allah has compassed them. And Allah has power over all things.
If those who disbelieve fight against you, they would have turned their backs, and then they would have found neither a protector nor a helper.
That has been the Way of Allah which already passed away before. You will never find any change in the Way of Allah.
And it is He Who has restrained their hands from you and your hands from them in the midst of Makkah (through the peace treaty of Hudaibiyah), after that He had made you victors over them. And Allah is the All-Seer of what you do.
They are the ones who disbelieved and obstructed you from the sacred Masjid (of Makkah) and detained the sacrificed animals from reaching their place of sacrifice. Had there not been believing men and believing women (in Makkah) whom you did not know, and you may trample (heavily burst) them under your feet and thus incurring a sin committed by you without your knowledge (but Allah held back your hands), so that Allah may admit to His Mercy whom He wills. If they (believers and disbelievers) should have been apart, We would have punished those of them who disbelieved with painful punishment.
When those who disbelieve had put in their hearts pride and arrogance, the pride and arrogance of the time of ignorance, then Allah sent down His Tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the believers, and made them stick to the word of piety, and they were well entitled to it and worthy of it. And Allah is the All-Knower of everything.
Indeed Allah will fulfill His Messenger’s true vision (which Allah showed him) in all truth. Certainly, you shall enter the sacred Masjid; if Allah wills, secure (to perform Umrah) having your heads shaved, and having your head hair cut short, having no fear. He knows what you don’t know, and besides He granted a near victory.
It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), so that He may make it (Islam) superior over all other religions. And Allah is All-Sufficient as a Witness.
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are strong against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allah and (His) good pleasure. The mark of them (their faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of prostration. This is their description in the Torah. Their description in the Gospel is like a seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands right on its stem delighting the sowers (of the seed) so that He may make the disbelievers angry with them. Those among them who believe and do righteous deeds, Allah has Promised forgiveness and a great reward.
