48:1  Indeed We have inaugurated for you a clear victory
48:2  that Allah may forgive you what is past of your sin and what is to come, and that He may perfect His blessing upon you and guide you on a straight path
48:3  and Allah will help you with a mighty help
48:4  It is He who sent down composure into the hearts of the faithful that they might enhance their faith. To Allah belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is all-knowing, all-wise
48:5  That He may admit the faithful, men and women, into gardens with streams running in them, to remain in them [forever], and that He may absolve them of their misdeeds. That is a great success with Allah
48:6  That He may punish the hypocrites, men and women, and the polytheists, men and women, who entertain a bad opinion of Allah. For them shall be an adverse turn of fortune: Allah is wrathful with them and He has cursed them, and prepared for them hell, and it is an evil destination
48:7  To Allah belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is all-mighty, all-wise
48:8  Indeed We have sent you as a witness, and as a bearer of good news and warner
48:9  that you may have faith in Allah and His Apostle, and that you may support him and revere him, and that you may glorify Him morning and evening
48:10  Indeed those who swear allegiance to you, swear allegiance only to Allah: the hand of Allah is above their hands. So whosoever breaks his oath, breaks it only to his own detriment, and whoever fulfills the covenant he has made with Allah, He will give him a great reward
48:11  The Bedouins who were left behind will tell you, ‘Our possessions and our families kept us occupied. So plead [to Allah] for our forgiveness!’ They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say, ‘Who can be of any avail to you against Allah, should He desire to cause you harm or desire to bring you benefit? Rather Allah is well aware of what you do.’
48:12  Rather you thought that the Apostle and the faithful will not return to their folk ever, and that was made to seem decorous to your hearts, and you entertained evil thoughts, and you were a ruined lot
48:13  As for those who have no faith in Allah and His Apostle, We have prepared a blaze for the faithless
48:14  To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth: He forgives whomever He wishes, and punishes whomever He wishes, and Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful
48:15  Those who were left to stay behind will say, when you set out to capture booty: ‘Let us follow you.’ They desire to change the word of Allah. Say, ‘You shall never follow us! Thus has Allah said beforehand.’ Then they will say, ‘You are envious of us.’ Rather they do not understand but a little
48:16  Say to the Bedouins who were left to stay behind, ‘You will be called against a people of a great might: they will embrace Islam, or you will fight them. So if you obey, Allah will give you a good reward; but if you turn away like you turned away before, He will punish you with a painful punishment.’
48:17  There is no blame on the blind, nor is there any blame on the lame, nor is there blame on the sick; and whoever obeys Allah and His Apostle, He will admit him into gardens with streams running in them, and whoever refuses to comply, He will punish him with a painful punishment
48:18  Allah was certainly pleased with the faithful when they swore allegiance to you under the tree. He knew what was in their hearts, so He sent down composure on them, and requited them with a victory near at han
48:19  and abundant spoils that they will capture, and Allah is all-mighty, all-wise
48:20  Allah has promised you abundant spoils which you will capture. He has expedited this one for you, and withheld men’s hands from you, so that it may be a sign for the faithful, and that He may guide you to a straight path
48:21  And other [spoils] which you have not yet captured: Allah has comprehended them, and Allah has power over all things
48:22  If the faithless fight you, they will turn their backs [to flee]. Then they will not find any protector or helper
48:23  [It is] Allah’s precedent that has passed before, and you will never find in Allah’s precedent any change
48:24  It is He who withheld their hands from you, and your hands from them, in the valley of Makkah, after He had given you victory over them, and Allah sees best what you do
48:25  They are the ones who disbelieved and barred you from the Sacred Mosque, and kept the offering from reaching its destination. And were it not for [certain] faithful men and faithful women, whom you did not know —lest you should trample them, and thus blame for [killing] them should fall on you unawares; [He held you back] so that Allah may admit into His mercy whomever He wishes. And had they been separate, We would have surely punished the faithless among them with a painful punishment
48:26  When the faithless nourished bigotry in their hearts, the bigotry of pagan ignorance, Allah sent down His composure upon His Apostle and upon the faithful, and made them abide by the word of Godwariness, for they were the worthiest of it and deserved it, and Allah has knowledge of all things
48:27  Certainly Allah has fulfilled His Apostle’s vision in all truth: You will surely enter the Sacred Mosque, God willing, in safety, with your heads shaven or hair cropped, without any fear. So He knew what you did not know, and He assigned [you] besides that a victory near at hand
48:28  It is He who has sent His Apostle with guidance and the true religion, that He may make it prevail over all religions, and Allah suffices as witness
48:29  Muḥammad, the Apostle of Allah, and those who are with him are hard against the faithless and merciful amongst themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in worship], seeking Allah’s grace and [His] pleasure. Their mark is [visible] on their faces, from the effect of prostration. Such is their description in the Torah and their description in the Evangel. Like a tillage that sends out its shoots and builds them up, and they grow stout and settle on their stalks, impressing the sowers, so that He may enrage the faithless by them. Allah has promised those of them who have faith and do righteous deeds forgiveness and a great reward
