58:1  Indeed, Allah has heard the words of the woman who was arguing with you about her husband and was pleading with Allah. And Allah was hearing the mutual questions and answers of both of you. Surely, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing
58:2  Those of you who separate their wives by zihar (i.e., they say to their wives: You are to me as my mother’s back. But by saying this) they do not become their mothers. Their mothers are only those who have given them birth. And no doubt they utter evil and false words. Surely, Allah is Most Forbearing, Most Forgiving
58:3  And those who separate their wives by zihar, but then seek to go back on what they have said, setting free a neck (a slave) is obligatory before they touch each other. This is what you are admonished. And Allah is Well Aware of the works that you do
58:4  But the one who does not find (a slave) must fast for two consecutive months (as an obligation) before they touch each other. Then someone who is unable to do that must feed sixty poor people (under obligation). That is in order that you may keep your belief in Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him). And these are the limits (set by) Allah. And there is a painful punishment for the disbelievers
58:5  Indeed, those who maintain rivalry against Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) will be humiliated as those before them were humiliated. And surely, We have sent down clear Revelations, and there is humiliating torment for the disbelievers
58:6  On the Day when Allah will raise them up (giving life again), He will then inform them of their actions. Allah has counted up (their) every action whilst they have forgotten it. And Allah is Witness over (and Well Aware of) everything
58:7  (O man!) Do you not know that Allah knows all those things which are in the heavens and in the earth? There is no whisper of three (men) anywhere but He is their fourth (with His all-encompassing knowledge and awareness). Nor is there any whisper of five (men) but He is the sixth of them (with His all-encompassing knowledge). Nor of less or more than that but He is (always) with them wherever they are. Then on the Day of Rising, He will alert them to the actions that they used to do. Surely, Allah knows everything full well
58:8  Have you not seen those who were forbidden to whisper? Then they started doing the same that they were forbidden to do. And they whisper about sin and revolt and disobedience to the (Holy) Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him), and when they come to your presence, they greet you with the (unbecoming) words with which Allah has not greeted you and say in their hearts: ‘(If this Messenger [blessings and peace be upon him] is truthful then) why does Allah not punish us for what we say?’ (The punishment of) Hell is sufficient for them. They will enter it and it is an extremely evil abode
58:9  O believers! When you whisper amongst yourselves, whisper not sin, injustice, revolt and disobedience to the Holy Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him); but whisper piety and Godwariness and keep fearing Allah before Whom you all will be gathered
58:10  (Negative and destructive) whispering is (employed) by Satan alone so that he may cause anguish to the believers. But in truth, he (Satan) cannot do any harm to them (the believers) except by Allah’s command. And the believers should trust Allah alone
58:11  O believers! When it is said to you: ‘Open up and make room in your gatherings,’ then open up and make room. Allah will provide you with ample room. And when it is said: ‘Rise up,’ then rise up. Allah will raise those in ranks who believe from amongst you and who are given knowledge. And Allah is Well Aware of the works that you do
58:12  O believers! When you seek to submit some secret to the Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) in private, give something in charity before you submit your secret. This (action) is better and purer for you. But if you do not find anything (to offer in charity), then Allah is Most Forgiving, Ever-Merciful
58:13  Are you worried about donating in charity before your submission to the Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) in secret? So when you did not do (that) and Allah lifted from you probe (i.e., relaxed this restriction), then establish Prayer and pay Zakat (the Alms-due) and obey Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) persistently. And Allah is Well Aware of all the deeds that you do
58:14  Have you not seen those who make friends with such a party upon whom Allah sent wrath? They are neither of you nor of them and they take false oaths whilst they know
58:15  Allah has prepared for them severe punishment. Indeed, it is an evil (work) that they are doing
58:16  They have made their (false) oaths a shield. So they hinder (others) from the way of Allah. Consequently, there is a humiliating punishment for them
58:17  Neither their wealth nor their children will ever be able to save them from (the punishment of) Allah. It is they who are the inmates of Hell. They will live in it forever
58:18  The Day when Allah will raise up all of them (giving life a second time), they will swear to Him (as well) as they swear to you. And they assume that they are on a (right) thing (i.e., path). Beware! They are liars
58:19  Satan has gained mastery over them. So he has made them forget the remembrance of Allah. It is they who are Satan’s army. Know that indeed it is the party of Satan who are the losers
58:20  Surely, those who maintain enmity against Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him), it is they who are of the lowest of mankind
58:21  Allah has destined: ‘Most certainly, I and My Messengers will dominate.’ Surely, Allah is Most Strong, Almighty
58:22  You will never find those who believe in Allah and the Day of Rising making friends with anyone who is hostile to Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him), even though they are their fathers (and forefathers), or their sons (and grandsons), or their brothers, or their near relatives. It is they in whose hearts Allah has inscribed faith and has strengthened them with His spirit (i.e., special spiritual benefit). And He will admit them to the Gardens with streams flowing under them. They will live in them forever. Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Allah. It is they who are the party of (the devotees of) Allah. Remember! It is the party of (the devotees of) Allah that attain to the goal
