Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth celebrates the praises of Allâh and declares His infinite glory. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
He is the One Who caused (Banū al-Nadīr) who excessively indulged in disbelief (in Allâh) among the people of the Scripture (Jews & Christians) to go forth from their homes to the first exile. You deemed not that they would go forth, while they thought that their strongholds would defend them against (the wrath of) Allâh. But the (chastisement of) Allâh came to them whence they never expected; and He cast terror into their hearts. Thus, they destroyed their own houses by their own hands, and by the hands of the ‘Monotheistic Believers’. Thus, take heed, O' you who have vision!
Had it not been that Allâh had decreed exile for them, He would definitely have punished them in this ‘worldly life’, and theirs in the ‘Hereafter’ is the chastisement of the Fire.
That is because they opposed Allâh and His ‘Messenger’. Whosoever opposes Allâh (let him be sure that) Allâh is extremely severe in executing punishment.
Whatever palm-tree you cut down or leave it standing upon its roots, it is by the permission of Allâh. He will definitely humiliate the debauchees who walk in the path of disobedience.
Whatever Allâh gives as spoil to His ‘Messenger’ from them, you urge not any horse or riding-camel. But Allâh gives authority to His ‘Messengers’ against whom He wills. Lo! Allâh is capable of doing whatever He wills.
Whatever Allâh gives as spoil to His ‘Messenger’ from the people of the towns, it is for (serving the cause of) Allâh and for the ‘Messenger’, as well as for the near of kin, for the orphans, for the needy and for the wayfarer, so that it may not become a fortune used by the rich among you. Thus, whatever the ‘Messenger’ gives you, accept it (with pleasure). And whatever he forbids, abstain from it and do act piously toward Allâh. Verily, Allâh is extremely severe in executing punishment.
The spoils of war is for the poor immigrants, who were expelled from their homes and their possessions, seeking bounty from Allâh and His pleasure, and for giving support to the cause of Allâh and to His ‘Messenger’. These are indeed the truthful.
Those who had homes in the City (‘Medina’), and had attained Faith (in Allâh), before the arrival of the immigrants, love those who emigrated to them, finding in their hearts no need of what they are given, and preferring (the immigrants) over themselves, even when they themselves need what they give away. Whoever is protected from their own parsimony, they are the ones who will ultimately achieve a blissful life /or gain eternal salvation.
Those who came after them say: “Our Lord, forgive us and our brethren, who were before us in faith, and leave not in our hearts any malevolence toward those who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism. Our Lord! You are indeed Full of Compassion, Most Merciful.”
Have you not seen the behavior of the ‘Hypocrites’? They say to their brethren who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh) among the people of the Scripture (Jews & Christians): “If you are expelled, we will definitely leave with you. And we will never obey anyone who is against you. If it happens that you are attacked, we will assist you and go with you to fight by your side.” Allâh testified that they are truly liars.
Definitely, if it happens that they are expelled, the Hypocrites will never leave with them. And if it happens that they are attacked, they will never assist them and go to fight with their side. Consequently, if they were to assist them and to go to fight with their side, they would turn their back and flee from the battle, leaving them helpless.
You are definitely greater in being feared in their hearts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who are incapable of understanding (& recognizing the truth from falsehood).
They will not (dare to) fight against you all together except in fortified villages or from behind walls. Their brutality among themselves is very intense. You would think they were united but the fact is that their hearts are divided. That is because they are a people who possess no self- awareness that allows them to understand.
They are like the example of those who, a short time before, tasted the dreadful consequences of their evil deeds, and they will have to incur a painful chastisement.
(The ‘Hypocrites’ are) like the example of ‘Satan’ when he says to the human being: "Disbelieve in Allâh." But when he disbelieves, he says (unto him): "Indeed, I disown you. I fear (the wrath of) Allâh, the Lord of all the worlds."
Thus, the consequence for both of them will be that they will be in the Fire, where they will abide therein. This is the chastisement for those who are grossly unfair and morally wrong.
O’ you who adhere firmly to monotheism, act piously towards Allâh and let every Human Self look to what it has sent forth for the morrow. Act piously towards Allâh. He is certainly All-Aware of all what you do.
Be not like those who forgot to act piously toward Allâh and so He caused them to forget their own selves. These are the debauchees who walk in the path of disobedience.
Not equal are the the ‘Denizens of Hell’, and the ‘Denizens of Al-Jannah’. The the ‘Denizens of Jannah ‘are (indeed) the ones who achieved eternal salvation.
If We had caused this ‘Qur’ān’ to descend upon a mountain, you would certainly have seen it falling down, splitting asunder, out of reverence for Allâh. We set forth these parables to men so that they may be able to ruminate (on the nature of existence).
He is Allâh besides Whom there is no god, the All-Knowing of the unseen and the visible. He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
He is Allâh, besides Whom there is no God, the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Giver of Peace, the Giver of Security, the Guardian, the All-Mighty, the Omnipotent, the Supreme. Glory be to Allâh from all what they associate with Him.
He is Allâh, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner. Unto Him belong the Most Honorable and Gracious Names. Whatever is in the heavens and the earth does celebrate His praises and declare His glory. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
