5:1  You alone we serve, and You alone we ask for help.
5:2  These are on guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful ones.
5:3  Nothing is hidden from God on the earth and in the skies.
5:4  And do not give your properties which God made a source of support for you to the immature ones but provide for them and clothe them with that, and speak to them nicely.
5:5  Today, the good things are made lawful for you, and the food of those who were given the book is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them, and the chaste among the believing women and the chaste among those who were given the book before you (are lawful) when you pay their compensations (marriage portions) for marriage and not for fornication (or prostitution) and not taking (them) as lovers. Whoever rejects the belief (in God), indeed his work becomes useless and he is among the losers in the Hereafter.
5:6  They denied the truth when it came to them, so the news of what they were ridiculing will come to them.
5:7  When Our punishment came to them, their call was only to say: “Indeed we were wrongdoers.”
5:8  As your Lord rightly made you (Muhammad) go out of your home (for the battle of Badr), while indeed a group of the believers disliked it.
5:9  So when the forbidden months have passed, then kill the idolaters wherever you find them and take them and restrain them and sit and wait for them in every place of ambush. But if they repent and perform mandatory prayer and give to mandatory charity, then open their way (leave them alone). God is forgiving and merciful.
5:10  He is the One Who made the sun shine and the moon a (reflection of) light and determined its positions so you know the number of years and the count (of days and time). God rightfully created that. He explains the signs for people who know.
5:11  Be aware, they fold up their chests/minds to hide from Him (or him). In fact, when they cover themselves with their clothing, He knows what they hide and what they disclose. He knows what is inside the chests/minds.
5:12  He said: “My son, do not tell your dream to your brothers, so they don't plan a plot against you, indeed Satan is human being’s obvious enemy,
5:13  And if you are surprised, then their saying is astonishing: “Will we be created again when we turn into dust?” They are those who disbelieved in their Lord, and they will have shackles around their necks, and they will be inhabitants of the fire, remaining in it forever.
5:14  And We had certainly sent Moses with Our signs (saying:) “Bring your people out of the darkness and into the light and remind them of the days of God.” Indeed there are signs in that for every patient and thankful (person).
5:15  No community (of faith) advances its appointed time nor can they delay it.
5:16  And He created the livestock for you, in them there is warmth (from their skin) and other benefits, and you eat from them.
5:17  and when the first of the two promise comes, We raise Our servants against you with awesome powers, then they enter your houses. This is a promise that will be done.
5:18  They have no knowledge of it, and neither did their fathers. The word coming out of their mouths is (extremely) serious. They only say a lie.
5:19  indeed I am afraid of my relatives after me (after I die), and my wife is infertile, so give me an heir from Yourself,
5:20  the beneficent, reigning the dominion.
5:21  But they said: “Confused dreams, or he made it up, or he is a poet, so he should bring us a miracle like it was sent to the earlier (prophets).”
5:22  People, if you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then (consider that) indeed We created you from dust, then from fertilized egg (zygote), then from a (dangling, clinging, and leach like) blood clot, then from a piece of chewed flesh (embryo) formed and unformed in order to clarify for you (that We are capable of everything). And We settle what We want in the wombs for a limited period, then We bring you out as a baby, then you reach your full maturity (and strength), and some of you die and some of you are returned to the lowest part of life, so that they do not know anything after knowing (and they forget everything). And you see the earth barren (and lifeless), then when We send down the rain on it, it revives and grows and produces all kinds of beautiful (plants).
5:23  and who guard their private parts,
5:24  Except those who repent and straighten out after that, then indeed God is forgiving and merciful.
5:25  And they say: “(These are) stories of the earlier ones that he has copied it and it is dictated to him morning and afternoon.”
5:26  Whenever a new reminder comes to them from the beneficent, they turn away from it.
5:27  They are those who will have the bad punishment and they are the worst losers in the Hereafter.
5:28  And We wanted to do a favor to those who were weak in the land and to make them leaders and to make them the inheritors,
5:29  Anyone who is hoping to meet God, (should know) that God’s appointed time is certainly coming, and He hears all and He knows all.
5:30  in God’s help, as He helps anyone He wants and He is the powerful and the merciful.
5:31  They are on guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful ones.
5:32  He directs every affair from the sky to the earth, then it goes up to Him in a day that its duration is one thousand years of what you count.
5:33  Call them by their fathers’ (names), it is more just before God. And if you do not know their fathers, then they are your brothers in the religion and your friends. And there is no blame on you about what you made a mistake in it (unintentionally or being unaware) but (you are responsible) for what your hearts intended (and you did intentionally). God is forgiving and kind.
5:34  And those who tried to disable (and invalidate) Our signs, they have punishment of a painful filth.
5:35  People, indeed God’s promise is true, so do not let this world’s life deceive you, and do not let the deceiver (Satan) deceive you about God.
5:36  (Quran is) a sent down by the powerful and the merciful,
5:37  the Lord of the skies and the earth and whatever between them, and the Lord of the easts.
5:38  Has he made the gods into one god? This is certainly a strange thing.”
5:39  He created the skies and the earth with truth. He wraps the night over the day and wraps the day over the night and He controls the sun and the moon, each running (its course) for a finite time. Surely, He is the powerful, the forgiver.
5:40  Before them, people of Noah and other parties after them denied (their messengers), and every community intended to take (capture) their messenger, and they argued by (means of) falsehood to disprove the truth with it. So I took them (in punishment), and how was My punishment?
5:41  And they said: “Our hearts are in a cover from what you call us to it, and in our ears is deafness, and there is a barrier between us and between you, so do (what you can), and indeed we are doers (as we please).”
5:42  The skies are about to tear apart from above them, and angels glorify their Lord with praise and ask forgiveness for whoever is on the earth. In fact, God is the forgiving, the merciful.
5:43  Should We take the reminder away from you, ignoring you because you are excessive people?
5:44  a command from Us. Indeed We are the senders.
5:45  And the alternation between night and day, and what God sends down as provision from the sky (rain), then He gives life to the earth after its death with it, and changing of the winds, are signs for people who understand.
5:46  Who is more mistaken than someone who calls on anyone besides God who does not answer him (even) until the Resurrection Day, and they are unaware of their call?
5:47  He is going to guide them (to paradise) and puts their condition in order,
5:48  So that He admits the believing men and believing women to gardens which rivers flow through them, remaining in there forever, and He removes their sins from them. And that is a great victory with God.
5:49  And if they wait until you come out to them, that is better for them. God is forgiving and merciful.
5:50  No, but they denied the truth when it came to them, and they are in a state of confusion.
5:51  what you are promised is certainly true,
5:52  and by the raised roof,
5:53  taught to him by the very powerful (Gabriel),
5:54  a perfect wisdom, but warnings are of no use.
5:55  The sun and the moon with precisely calculated (courses).
5:56  and the mountains are totally disintegrated
5:57  The rule of the skies and the earth belongs to Him, and all affairs are returned to God.
5:58  Indeed those who oppose God and His messenger are subdued as those before them were subdued. And We have sent down clear signs/verses, and disbelievers will have a humiliating punishment.
5:59  Any palm tree that you cut down or you left it standing on its roots, it is by God's permission so that He (may) humiliate the disobedient ones.
5:60  Our Lord, do not make us a test for those who disbelieve, and our Lord forgive us, indeed You are the powerful, the wise.
5:61  And when Moses said to his people: “My people, why do you harass me while you have known that I am God's messenger to you?” So when they deviated, God made their hearts deviate. And God does not guide disobedient people.
5:62  Example of those who were charged with (upholding) the Torah and they did not carry it out is like the example of the donkey carrying books. The example of the people who denied God's signs is miserable. And God does not guide wrongdoing people.
5:63  And when they are told: “Come, God's messenger asks forgiveness for you” they turn their heads and you see them turn away in arrogance.
5:64  Has the news of those who disbelieved in the past not come to you? They tasted the bad result of their affair, and they will have a painful punishment.
5:65  This is God's command which He has sent it down to you. And anyone who is cautious of God, He will remove his sins from him and He makes his reward great.
5:66  If he divorces you, perhaps His Lord gives him better wives than you in exchange, submitted, believer, obedient, repentant, devoted servants, fasting, previously married and virgin women.
5:67  And We have certainly beautified the world's sky with lamps (stars), and We have made them meteorites for (throwing at) the devils, and We have prepared the punishment of burning fire for them.
5:68  So you are going to see and they will see,
5:69  As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the wrongful conduct (or by the enormous blast).
5:70  So be patient, a nice patience.
5:71  He said: “My Lord, indeed I invited my people night and day,
5:72  and we assumed that humans and Jinn never lie about God.
5:73  Indeed We are going to throw a heavy word on you.
5:74  and keep away from filth
5:75  But, human being wants to sin in his time to come.
5:76  Indeed the good ones drink from a cup that its mixture is camphor.
5:77  then by those communicating a reminder
5:78  Then, no way, they are going to know.
5:79  and by those who manage an affair,
5:80  But whoever supposes he has no need,
5:81  and when the wild animals are gathered
5:82  a person knows what it has sent ahead and put off.
5:83  for a great day?
5:84  and it listens to its Lord and it is required (to listen).
5:85  the fire having (plenty of) fuel,
5:86  So the human being should look at what he is created from.
5:87  then He made it dried-up and black.
5:88  they are made to drink from a boiling spring.
5:89  Is there an oath in that for one who has understanding?
5:90  Does he think that no one will ever have power over him?
5:91  and by the sky and what built it,
5:92  As for anyone who gives and is cautious (of God)
5:93  And your Lord will certainly give you (enough) so you are pleased.
5:94  So with difficulty (and hardship) there is ease.
5:95  then We return him to the lowest of the low
5:96  He taught the human being what he did not know.
5:97  It is peace (and well-being) until the rising of the dawn.
5:98  And they were ordered to serve God alone, being sincere to Him in the way of life (religion) as a monotheist, and perform mandatory prayers and give to mandatory charity. And that is the lasting (and right) way of life (religion).
5:99  because your Lord revealed to it.
5:100  and penetrate to the middle of it (the battle) together,
5:101  and the mountains become like fluffed up colored wool.
5:102  No way, if you knew the sure knowledge (then greed/rivalry would not have preoccupied you).
5:104  And how would you know what the crushing fire is?
5:105  then He made them like chewed up straw?
5:107  those who are unmindful of (the purpose of) their mandatory prayer,
5:109  and you are not servants of what I serve,
5:111  around her neck will be a rope of palm fiber.
5:113  and from the harm of the envious when he envies.”
5:114  the one who tempts in people's chest/minds,
