49:1  O’ you who who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism, put not yourselves forward before Allâh and His ‘Messenger’, and act piously toward Allâh. Indeed, Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knowing.
49:2  O’ you who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism , raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet, neither do you speak loudly to him as you speak loudly to one another, lest your deeds may become null and void, while you do not perceive it.
49:3  Indeed, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allâh are the ones whose hearts have been tested for piety by Allâh. For them, there will be forgiveness and an immense reward.
49:4  Those who call out for you behind the private apartments, most of them do not possess self- awareness that allows them to understand.
49:5  If they had exercised patience until you could come out to them, it would have been far better for them. Indeed, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
49:6  O’ you who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism, if a debauchee, son of disobedience, came to you with a news, you ought to verify it (first), lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become remorseful over what you have done.
49:7  Know that the ‘Messenger’ of Allâh is among you. If he were to obey you in much of the matters, you would have been stressful. But Allâh has endeared Faith to you and adorned it in your hearts, and made you loathe blasphemy, debauchery and disobedience . Those are the ones who attain spiritual insight.
49:8  (This is) a bounty and a grace from Allâh. Allâh is All-Knowing All-wise.
49:9  If it happens that two parties of ‘Monotheistic Believers’ fall to fighting, then reconcile between them. But if one of them initiates an aggressively hostile position to the other one, then fight against the one that initiates an aggressively hostile position till it complies with the command of Allâh. If it complies, then reconcile between them in justice, and act justly. Indeed, Allâh demonstrates his own love for those who deal fairly.
49:10  The ‘Monotheistic Believers’ are brethren. Thus, reconcile between your brethren and act piously toward Allâh, so that you may receive mercy.
49:11  O’ you who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism, let not a folk poke fun at a folk who may be better then them; and let not women poke fun at women who may be better then them; neither do revile one another, nor defame one another by using bad names. An evil name is the name of debauchery after Faith. The one who dose not repents , such are the ones who are grossly unfair and morally wrong.
49:12  O’ you who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism, avoid any kind of suspicion. Indeed, suspicion in some cases is a sin. Spy not, or backbite one another. Would anyone of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother when you detest it?! Thus, act piously toward Allâh. Indeed, Allâh is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.
49:13  O’ mankind, indeed, We have created you from a male and a female, and made you nations and tribes, so that you may know one another. The most honorable among you in the sight of Allâh is one who is most pious among you. Indeed, Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Aware.
49:14  The Bedouin Arabs say: "We believe." Say, "You believe not but you only say, ‘We have submitted (ourselves entirely to the authority Allâh),” for Faith has not yet entered your hearts. If you obey Allâh and His Messenger, He will not diminish you anything of your deeds. Indeed, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
49:15  The ‘Monotheistic Believers’ are those only who believe in Allâh and His Messenger, then they do not harbour doubts. They strive hard for (serving) the cause of Allâh with their wealth and their lives. Those are the truthful ones.
49:16  Say: 'What! Are you going to instruct Allâh about your religion while Allâh knows perfectly well whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth?! Allâh is All-Aware of everything.”
49:17  They consider it as a favor to you, that they have embraced Islam. Say, "You are not doing me any favors by embracing Islam. Nay, but Allâh has conferred a favor on you, that He has guided you to the (upright) Faith, if you are truthful.
49:18  Indeed, Allâh knows well the unseen of the heavens and of the earth. Allâh is all Seer of all what you do.
