CHAPTER 3 THE FAMILY OF IMRAN ĀL ʿIMRĀN ( آل عمران ) 200 verses • revealed at Medinan

»The surah that mentions that God has chosen The Family of Imran to inherit prophethood above the people of all the world (Imran was a common ancestor of Moses and Jesus). It takes its name from the expression “the House of ʿImrān” (āl-i ʿImrān) mentioned in . It begins by emphasizing that the Quran confirms the earlier scriptures and goes on to say later that the central tenet of faith is devotion to God ( ff.). The story of Zachariah, Mary, and Jesus is given in ff. and the fact that Jesus was unfathered, just as Adam was created without a father, is accentuated. Aspects of the battles of Badr (year 2/624) and Uḥud (year 3/625) are described, especially the latter, where most of the early Muslims disobeyed the Prophet Muḥammad and were defeated. The surah first introduce the tension that arose between the Muslims and certain of the Jews and Christians ( ff. and ff.), then closes by emphasizing the unity of faith and conduct between the Muslims and some of these People of the Book, explaining that these will have their reward from God ().«

The surah is also known as: The Family of Imraan, The House of Imran, The Imrans.

TRANSLATION It is He who has sent down to you the Book. Parts of it are definitive verses, which are the mother of the Book, while others are metaphorical.1 As for those in whose hearts is deviance, they pursue what is metaphorical in it, courting temptation and courting its interpretation. But no one knows its interpretation except Allah and those firmly grounded in knowledge; they say, ‘We believe in it; all of it is from our Lord.’ And none takes admonition except those who possess intellect. Or ‘ambiguous.’ 8 رَبَّنا لا تُزِغ قُلوبَنا بَعدَ إِذ هَدَيتَنا وَهَب لَنا مِن لَدُنكَ رَحمَةً ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الوَهّابُ TRANSLITERATION rabbanā lā tuzigh qulūbanā baʿda ʾidh hadaytanā wa-hab lanā min ladunka raḥmatan ʾinnaka ʾanta l-wahhābu

TRANSLATION As for the faithless, neither their wealth nor their children shall avail them anything against Allah; it is they who will be fuel for the Fire;

TRANSLATION as in the case of Pharaoh’s clan and those who were before them, who denied Our signs. So Allah seized them for their sins, and Allah is severe in retribution.

TRANSLATION There was certainly a sign for you in the two hosts that met: one host fighting in the way of Allah and the other faithless, who saw them visibly twice as many.1 Allah strengthens with His help whomever He wishes. There is indeed a moral in that for those who have insight. Or ‘whom they [i.e. the faithful] saw visibly twice as many.’ 14 زُيِّنَ لِلنّاسِ حُبُّ الشَّهَواتِ مِنَ النِّساءِ وَالبَنينَ وَالقَناطيرِ المُقَنطَرَةِ مِنَ الذَّهَبِ وَالفِضَّةِ وَالخَيلِ المُسَوَّمَةِ وَالأَنعامِ وَالحَرثِ ۗ ذٰلِكَ مَتاعُ الحَياةِ الدُّنيا ۖ وَاللَّهُ عِندَهُ حُسنُ المَآبِ TRANSLITERATION zuyyina li-n-nāsi ḥubbu sh-shahawāti mina n-nisāʾi wa-l-banīna wa-l-qanāṭīri l-muqanṭarati mina dh-dhahabi wa-l-fiḍḍati wa-l-khayli l-musawwamati wa-l-ʾanʿāmi wa-l-ḥarthi dhālika matāʿu l-ḥayāti d-dunyā wa-llāhu ʿindahū ḥusnu l-maʾābi

TRANSLATION To mankind has been made to seem decorous the love of [worldly] desires, including women and children, accumulated piles of gold and silver, horses of mark, livestock, and farms. Those are the wares of the life of this world; but Allah—with Him is a good destination.

15 ۞ قُل أَؤُنَبِّئُكُم بِخَيرٍ مِن ذٰلِكُم ۚ لِلَّذينَ اتَّقَوا عِندَ رَبِّهِم جَنّاتٌ تَجري مِن تَحتِهَا الأَنهارُ خالِدينَ فيها وَأَزواجٌ مُطَهَّرَةٌ وَرِضوانٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بَصيرٌ بِالعِبادِ TRANSLITERATION qul ʾa-ʾunabbiʾukum bi-khayrin min dhālikum li-lladhīna ttaqaw ʿinda rabbihim jannātun tajrī min taḥtihā l-ʾanhāru khālidīna fīhā wa-ʾazwājun muṭahharatun wa-riḍwānun mina llāhi wa-llāhu baṣīrun bi-l-ʿibādi

TRANSLATION Say, ‘Shall I inform you of something better than that? For those who are Godwary there will be gardens near their Lord, with streams running in them, to remain in them [forever], and chaste mates, and Allah’s pleasure.’ And Allah sees best the servants.

TRANSLATION Allah bears witness that there is no god except Him —and [so do] the angels and those who possess knowledge— maintainer of justice, there is no god but Him, the Almighty, the All-wise.

19 إِنَّ الدّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الإِسلامُ ۗ وَمَا اختَلَفَ الَّذينَ أوتُوا الكِتابَ إِلّا مِن بَعدِ ما جاءَهُمُ العِلمُ بَغيًا بَينَهُم ۗ وَمَن يَكفُر بِآياتِ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَريعُ الحِسابِ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna d-dīna ʿinda llāhi l-ʾislāmu wa-mā khtalafa lladhīna ʾūtū l-kitāba ʾillā min baʿdi mā jāʾahumu l-ʿilmu baghyan baynahum wa-man yakfur bi-ʾāyāti llāhi fa-ʾinna llāha sarīʿu l-ḥisābi

TRANSLATION Indeed, with Allah religion is Islām,1 and those who were given the Book did not differ except after knowledge had come to them, out of envy among themselves. And whoever defies Allah’s signs [should know that] Allah is swift at reckoning. Or ‘religion is submission [to Allah].’ 20 فَإِن حاجّوكَ فَقُل أَسلَمتُ وَجهِيَ لِلَّهِ وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَنِ ۗ وَقُل لِلَّذينَ أوتُوا الكِتابَ وَالأُمِّيّينَ أَأَسلَمتُم ۚ فَإِن أَسلَموا فَقَدِ اهتَدَوا ۖ وَإِن تَوَلَّوا فَإِنَّما عَلَيكَ البَلاغُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بَصيرٌ بِالعِبادِ TRANSLITERATION fa-ʾin ḥājjūka fa-qul ʾaslamtu wajhiya li-llāhi wa-mani ttabaʿani wa-qul li-lladhīna ʾūtū l-kitāba wa-l-ʾummiyyīna ʾa-ʾaslamtum fa-ʾin ʾaslamū fa-qadi htadaw wa-ʾin tawallaw fa-ʾinnamā ʿalayka l-balāghu wa-llāhu baṣīrun bi-l-ʿibādi

TRANSLATION So if they argue with you, say, ‘I have submitted my will to Allah, and [so has] he who follows me.’ And say to those who were given the Book and the uninstructed ones,1 ‘Do you submit?’ If they submit, they will certainly be guided; but if they turn away, then your duty is only to communicate; and Allah sees best the servants. That is, the Arabs, who unlike the Jews and the Christians did not possess any scripture and had not received any scriptural instruction. 21 إِنَّ الَّذينَ يَكفُرونَ بِآياتِ اللَّهِ وَيَقتُلونَ النَّبِيّينَ بِغَيرِ حَقٍّ وَيَقتُلونَ الَّذينَ يَأمُرونَ بِالقِسطِ مِنَ النّاسِ فَبَشِّرهُم بِعَذابٍ أَليمٍ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna lladhīna yakfurūna bi-ʾāyāti llāhi wa-yaqtulūna n-nabiyyīna bi-ghayri ḥaqqin wa-yaqtulūna lladhīna yaʾmurūna bi-l-qisṭi mina n-nāsi fa-bashshirhum bi-ʿadhābin ʾalīmin

TRANSLATION Those who defy Allah’s signs and kill the prophets unjustly,1 and kill those who call for justice from among the people, inform them of a painful punishment. That is, the Jews. Verses - relate to them. 22 أُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ حَبِطَت أَعمالُهُم فِي الدُّنيا وَالآخِرَةِ وَما لَهُم مِن ناصِرينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾulāʾika lladhīna ḥabiṭat ʾaʿmāluhum fī d-dunyā wa-l-ʾākhirati wa-mā lahum min nāṣirīna

TRANSLATION They are the ones whose works have failed in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.

23 أَلَم تَرَ إِلَى الَّذينَ أوتوا نَصيبًا مِنَ الكِتابِ يُدعَونَ إِلىٰ كِتابِ اللَّهِ لِيَحكُمَ بَينَهُم ثُمَّ يَتَوَلّىٰ فَريقٌ مِنهُم وَهُم مُعرِضونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾa-lam tara ʾilā lladhīna ʾūtū naṣīban mina l-kitābi yudʿawna ʾilā kitābi llāhi li-yaḥkuma baynahum thumma yatawallā farīqun minhum wa-hum muʿriḍūna

TRANSLATION Have you not regarded those who were given a share of the Book, who are summoned to the Book of Allah in order that it may judge between them, whereat a part of them refuse to comply and they are disregardful?

24 ذٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُم قالوا لَن تَمَسَّنَا النّارُ إِلّا أَيّامًا مَعدوداتٍ ۖ وَغَرَّهُم في دينِهِم ما كانوا يَفتَرونَ TRANSLITERATION dhālika bi-ʾannahum qālū lan tamassanā n-nāru ʾillā ʾayyāman maʿdūdātin wa-gharrahum fī dīnihim mā kānū yaftarūna

TRANSLATION That is because they say, ‘The Fire shall not touch us except for a number of days,’ and they have been misled in their religion by what they used to fabricate.

25 فَكَيفَ إِذا جَمَعناهُم لِيَومٍ لا رَيبَ فيهِ وَوُفِّيَت كُلُّ نَفسٍ ما كَسَبَت وَهُم لا يُظلَمونَ TRANSLITERATION fa-kayfa ʾidhā jamaʿnāhum li-yawmin lā rayba fīhi wa-wuffiyat kullu nafsin mā kasabat wa-hum lā yuẓlamūna

TRANSLATION But how will it be [with them] when We gather them on a day in which there is no doubt, and every soul shall be recompensed fully for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged?

26 قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ مالِكَ المُلكِ تُؤتِي المُلكَ مَن تَشاءُ وَتَنزِعُ المُلكَ مِمَّن تَشاءُ وَتُعِزُّ مَن تَشاءُ وَتُذِلُّ مَن تَشاءُ ۖ بِيَدِكَ الخَيرُ ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ TRANSLITERATION quli llāhumma mālika l-mulki tuʾtī l-mulka man tashāʾu wa-tanziʿu l-mulka mimman tashāʾu wa-tuʿizzu man tashāʾu wa-tudhillu man tashāʾu bi-yadika l-khayru ʾinnaka ʿalā kulli shayʾin qadīrun

TRANSLATION Say, ‘O Allah, Master of all sovereignty! You give sovereignty to whomever You wish, and strip of sovereignty whomever You wish; You make mighty whomever You wish, and You abase whomever You wish; all good is in Your hand. Indeed You have power over all things.

27 تولِجُ اللَّيلَ فِي النَّهارِ وَتولِجُ النَّهارَ فِي اللَّيلِ ۖ وَتُخرِجُ الحَيَّ مِنَ المَيِّتِ وَتُخرِجُ المَيِّتَ مِنَ الحَيِّ ۖ وَتَرزُقُ مَن تَشاءُ بِغَيرِ حِسابٍ TRANSLITERATION tūliju l-layla fī n-nahāri wa-tūliju n-nahāra fī l-layli wa-tukhriju l-ḥayya mina l-mayyiti wa-tukhriju l-mayyita mina l-ḥayyi wa-tarzuqu man tashāʾu bi-ghayri ḥisābin

TRANSLATION You make the night pass into the day and You make the day pass into the night. You bring forth the living from the dead and You bring forth the dead from the living, and You provide for whomever You wish without any reckoning.’ 28 لا يَتَّخِذِ المُؤمِنونَ الكافِرينَ أَولِياءَ مِن دونِ المُؤمِنينَ ۖ وَمَن يَفعَل ذٰلِكَ فَلَيسَ مِنَ اللَّهِ في شَيءٍ إِلّا أَن تَتَّقوا مِنهُم تُقاةً ۗ وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللَّهُ نَفسَهُ ۗ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ المَصيرُ TRANSLITERATION lā yattakhidhi l-muʾminūna l-kāfirīna ʾawliyāʾa min dūni l-muʾminīna wa-man yafʿal dhālika fa-laysa mina llāhi fī shayʾin ʾillā ʾan tattaqū minhum tuqātan wa-yuḥadhdhirukumu llāhu nafsahū wa-ʾilā llāhi l-maṣīru

TRANSLATION The faithful should not take the faithless for allies instead of the faithful, and whoever does that Allah will have nothing to do with him, except when you are wary of them out of caution. Allah warns you to beware of [disobeying] Him, and toward Allah is the return.

29 قُل إِن تُخفوا ما في صُدورِكُم أَو تُبدوهُ يَعلَمهُ اللَّهُ ۗ وَيَعلَمُ ما فِي السَّماواتِ وَما فِي الأَرضِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ TRANSLITERATION qul ʾin tukhfū mā fī ṣudūrikum ʾaw tubdūhu yaʿlamhu llāhu wa-yaʿlamu mā fī s-samāwāti wa-mā fī l-ʾarḍi wa-llāhu ʿalā kulli shayʾin qadīrun

TRANSLATION Say, ‘Whether you hide what is in your hearts, or disclose it, Allah knows it, and He knows whatever there is in the heavens and whatever there is in the earth; and Allah has power over all things.’

30 يَومَ تَجِدُ كُلُّ نَفسٍ ما عَمِلَت مِن خَيرٍ مُحضَرًا وَما عَمِلَت مِن سوءٍ تَوَدُّ لَو أَنَّ بَينَها وَبَينَهُ أَمَدًا بَعيدًا ۗ وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللَّهُ نَفسَهُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ رَءوفٌ بِالعِبادِ TRANSLITERATION yawma tajidu kullu nafsin mā ʿamilat min khayrin muḥḍaran wa-mā ʿamilat min sūʾin tawaddu law ʾanna baynahā wa-baynahū ʾamadan baʿīdan wa-yuḥadhdhirukumu llāhu nafsahū wa-llāhu raʾūfun bi-l-ʿibādi

TRANSLATION The day when every soul will find present whatever good it has done; and as to whatever evil it has done it will wish there were a far distance between it and itself. Allah warns you to beware of [disobeying] Him, and Allah is most kind to [His] servants.

TRANSLATION Say, ‘Obey Allah and the Apostle.’ But if they turn away, indeed Allah does not like the faithless. 33 ۞ إِنَّ اللَّهَ اصطَفىٰ آدَمَ وَنوحًا وَآلَ إِبراهيمَ وَآلَ عِمرانَ عَلَى العالَمينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna llāha ṣṭafā ʾādama wa-nūḥan wa-ʾāla ʾibrāhīma wa-ʾāla ʿimrāna ʿalā l-ʿālamīna

TRANSLATION some of them are descendants of the others, and Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing. 35 إِذ قالَتِ امرَأَتُ عِمرانَ رَبِّ إِنّي نَذَرتُ لَكَ ما في بَطني مُحَرَّرًا فَتَقَبَّل مِنّي ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ السَّميعُ العَليمُ TRANSLITERATION ʾidh qālati mraʾatu ʿimrāna rabbi ʾinnī nadhartu laka mā fī baṭnī muḥarraran fa-taqabbal minnī ʾinnaka ʾanta s-samīʿu l-ʿalīmu

I have named her Mary, and I commend her and her offspring to Your care against [the evil of] the outcast Satan.’ That is, Mary (ʿa). 37 فَتَقَبَّلَها رَبُّها بِقَبولٍ حَسَنٍ وَأَنبَتَها نَباتًا حَسَنًا وَكَفَّلَها زَكَرِيّا ۖ كُلَّما دَخَلَ عَلَيها زَكَرِيَّا المِحرابَ وَجَدَ عِندَها رِزقًا ۖ قالَ يا مَريَمُ أَنّىٰ لَكِ هٰذا ۖ قالَت هُوَ مِن عِندِ اللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَرزُقُ مَن يَشاءُ بِغَيرِ حِسابٍ TRANSLITERATION fa-taqabbalahā rabbuhā bi-qabūlin ḥasanin wa-ʾanbatahā nabātan ḥasanan wa-kaffalahā zakariyyā kullamā dakhala ʿalayhā zakariyyā l-miḥrāba wajada ʿindahā rizqan qāla yā-maryamu ʾannā laki hādhā qālat huwa min ʿindi llāhi ʾinna llāha yarzuqu man yashāʾu bi-ghayri ḥisābin

TRANSLATION Thereupon her Lord accepted her with a gracious acceptance, and made her grow up in a worthy fashion, and He charged Zechariah with her care. Whenever Zechariah visited her in the sanctuary, he would find provisions with her. He said, ‘O Mary, from where does this come for you?’ She said, ‘It comes from Allah. Allah provides whomever He wishes without any reckoning.’

38 هُنالِكَ دَعا زَكَرِيّا رَبَّهُ ۖ قالَ رَبِّ هَب لي مِن لَدُنكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً ۖ إِنَّكَ سَميعُ الدُّعاءِ TRANSLITERATION hunālika daʿā zakariyyā rabbahū qāla rabbi hab lī min ladunka dhurriyyatan ṭayyibatan ʾinnaka samīʿu d-duʿāʾi

TRANSLATION Then the angels called out to him, as he stood praying in the sanctuary: ‘Allah gives you the good news of John, as a confirmer of a Word of Allah,1 eminent and chaste, a prophet, among the righteous.’ That is, Jesus (ʿa). 40 قالَ رَبِّ أَنّىٰ يَكونُ لي غُلامٌ وَقَد بَلَغَنِيَ الكِبَرُ وَامرَأَتي عاقِرٌ ۖ قالَ كَذٰلِكَ اللَّهُ يَفعَلُ ما يَشاءُ TRANSLITERATION qāla rabbi ʾannā yakūnu lī ghulāmun wa-qad balaghaniya l-kibaru wa-mraʾatī ʿāqirun qāla ka-dhālika llāhu yafʿalu mā yashāʾu

TRANSLATION He said, ‘My Lord, how shall I have a son while old age has overtaken me and my wife is barren?’ He said, ‘So it is that Allah does whatever He wishes.’

41 قالَ رَبِّ اجعَل لي آيَةً ۖ قالَ آيَتُكَ أَلّا تُكَلِّمَ النّاسَ ثَلاثَةَ أَيّامٍ إِلّا رَمزًا ۗ وَاذكُر رَبَّكَ كَثيرًا وَسَبِّح بِالعَشِيِّ وَالإِبكارِ TRANSLITERATION qāla rabbi jʿal lī ʾāyatan qāla ʾāyatuka ʾallā tukallima n-nāsa thalāthata ʾayyāmin ʾillā ramzan wa-dhkur rabbaka kathīran wa-sabbiḥ bi-l-ʿashiyyi wa-l-ʾibkāri

TRANSLATION He said, ‘My Lord, grant me a sign.’ He said, ‘Your sign is that you will not speak to people for three days except in gestures. And remember Your Lord greatly, and glorify Him morning and evening.’

42 وَإِذ قالَتِ المَلائِكَةُ يا مَريَمُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ اصطَفاكِ وَطَهَّرَكِ وَاصطَفاكِ عَلىٰ نِساءِ العالَمينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾidh qālati l-malāʾikatu yā-maryamu ʾinna llāha ṣṭafāki wa-ṭahharaki wa-ṣṭafāki ʿalā nisāʾi l-ʿālamīna

TRANSLATION These accounts are from the Unseen, which We reveal to you, and you were not with them when they were casting lots [to see] which of them would take charge of Mary’s care, nor were you with them when they were contending.

45 إِذ قالَتِ المَلائِكَةُ يا مَريَمُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُبَشِّرُكِ بِكَلِمَةٍ مِنهُ اسمُهُ المَسيحُ عيسَى ابنُ مَريَمَ وَجيهًا فِي الدُّنيا وَالآخِرَةِ وَمِنَ المُقَرَّبينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾidh qālati l-malāʾikatu yā-maryamu ʾinna llāha yubashshiruki bi-kalimatin minhu smuhu l-masīḥu ʿīsā bnu maryama wajīhan fī d-dunyā wa-l-ʾākhirati wa-mina l-muqarrabīna

TRANSLATION When the angels said, ‘O Mary, Allah gives you the good news of a Word from Him whose name is Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, distinguished in the world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near [to Allah].

TRANSLATION She said, ‘My Lord, how shall I have a child seeing that no human has ever touched me?’ He said, ‘So it is that Allah creates whatever He wishes. When He decides on a matter He just says to it “Be!” and it is.

TRANSLATION and [he will be] an apostle to the Children of Israel, [and he will declare,] ‘I have certainly brought you a sign from your Lord: I will create for you out of clay the form of a bird, then I will breathe into it, and it will become a bird by Allah’s leave. And I heal the blind and the leper and I revive the dead by Allah’s leave. And I will tell you what you have eaten and what you have stored in your houses. There is indeed a sign in that for you, should you be faithful.

TRANSLATION And [I come] to confirm [the truth of] that which is before me of the Torah, and to make lawful for you some of the things that were forbidden you. I have brought you a sign from your Lord; so be wary of Allah and obey me.

TRANSLATION And when Jesus sensed their faithlessness, he said, ‘Who will be my helpers toward Allah?’ The Disciples said, ‘We will be helpers of Allah. We have faith in Allah, and bear witness that we are muslims.

53 رَبَّنا آمَنّا بِما أَنزَلتَ وَاتَّبَعنَا الرَّسولَ فَاكتُبنا مَعَ الشّاهِدينَ TRANSLITERATION rabbanā ʾāmannā bi-mā ʾanzalta wa-ttabaʿnā r-rasūla fa-ktubnā maʿa sh-shāhidīna

TRANSLATION Then they1 plotted [against Jesus], and Allah also devised, and Allah is the best of devisers. That is, the opponents of Jesus among the Jews. 55 إِذ قالَ اللَّهُ يا عيسىٰ إِنّي مُتَوَفّيكَ وَرافِعُكَ إِلَيَّ وَمُطَهِّرُكَ مِنَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا وَجاعِلُ الَّذينَ اتَّبَعوكَ فَوقَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا إِلىٰ يَومِ القِيامَةِ ۖ ثُمَّ إِلَيَّ مَرجِعُكُم فَأَحكُمُ بَينَكُم فيما كُنتُم فيهِ تَختَلِفونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾidh qāla llāhu yā-ʿīsā ʾinnī mutawaffīka wa-rāfiʿuka ʾilayya wa-muṭahhiruka mina lladhīna kafarū wa-jāʿilu lladhīna ttabaʿūka fawqa lladhīna kafarū ʾilā yawmi l-qiyāmati thumma ʾilayya marjiʿukum fa-ʾaḥkumu baynakum fī-mā kuntum fīhi takhtalifūna

TRANSLATION When Allah said, ‘O Jesus, I shall take you[r soul],1 and I shall raise you up toward Myself, and I shall clear you of [the calumnies of] the faithless, and I shall set those who follow you above the faithless until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me will be your return, whereat I will judge between you concerning that about which you used to differ. Tawaffā means ‘to exact fully’ something, ‘to receive in full,’ ‘to take one’s full share,’ and in the present Qurʾānic context it is used in the sense of taking away of the soul, either temporarily, as during sleep (as in ), or permanently, as at the time of death (as in ; ; ; , ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; , ; ). In verse , it is used to refer to the taking of the soul both during sleep and death: ‘It is Allah who takes (yatawaffā) the souls at death, and those that have not died during their sleep. He retains those for whom He has decreed death, but releases the rest for a specified term.’ The passive form of the verb, tuwuffiya means ‘to die,’ ‘to expire,’ and to ‘pass away.’ It occurs in , . In a tradition, Imam ʿAlī ibn Mūsā al-Riḍā (ʿa) explains that Jesus Christ (ʿa) “was raised alive from the earth to the heaven. Then his soul was taken away between the earth and the heaven. After he was raised to the heaven his soul was restored to his body, and hence the words of God, the Almighty and the Glorious, ‘When Allah said: ‘O Jesus, I shall take you[r soul], and I shall raise you up to Myself…’ ” (ʿUyūn akhbār al-Riḍā, Tehran: Intishārāt-e Jahān, n.d., ed. Sayyid Mahdī al-Ḥusaynī al-Lājwardī, vol. 1, p. 215; cf. Biḥār al-anwār, vol. 14, p. 338). 56 فَأَمَّا الَّذينَ كَفَروا فَأُعَذِّبُهُم عَذابًا شَديدًا فِي الدُّنيا وَالآخِرَةِ وَما لَهُم مِن ناصِرينَ TRANSLITERATION fa-ʾammā lladhīna kafarū fa-ʾuʿadhdhibuhum ʿadhāban shadīdan fī d-dunyā wa-l-ʾākhirati wa-mā lahum min nāṣirīna

TRANSLATION As for the faithless, I will punish them with a severe punishment in the world and the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers.’

57 وَأَمَّا الَّذينَ آمَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّالِحاتِ فَيُوَفّيهِم أُجورَهُم ۗ وَاللَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ الظّالِمينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾammā lladhīna ʾāmanū wa-ʿamilū ṣ-ṣāliḥāti fa-yuwaffīhim ʾujūrahum wa-llāhu lā yuḥibbu ẓ-ẓālimīna

TRANSLATION But as for those who have faith and do righteous deeds, He will pay them in full their rewards, and Allah does not like the wrongdoers.

58 ذٰلِكَ نَتلوهُ عَلَيكَ مِنَ الآياتِ وَالذِّكرِ الحَكيمِ TRANSLITERATION dhālika natlūhu ʿalayka mina l-ʾāyāti wa-dh-dhikri l-ḥakīmi

TRANSLATION These that We recite to you are from the signs and the Wise Reminder.1 Or ‘the Definitive Reminder.’ This is yet another name of the Holy Qurʾān. 59 إِنَّ مَثَلَ عيسىٰ عِندَ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ آدَمَ ۖ خَلَقَهُ مِن تُرابٍ ثُمَّ قالَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكونُ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna mathala ʿīsā ʿinda llāhi ka-mathali ʾādama khalaqahū min turābin thumma qāla lahū kun fa-yakūnu

TRANSLATION Indeed the case of Jesus with Allah is like the case of Adam: He created him from dust, then said to him, ‘Be,’ and he was.

TRANSLATION Should anyone argue with you concerning him, after the knowledge that has come to you, say, ‘Come! Let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, our souls and your souls, then let us pray earnestly and call down Allah’s curse upon the liars.’

62 إِنَّ هٰذا لَهُوَ القَصَصُ الحَقُّ ۚ وَما مِن إِلٰهٍ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ۚ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهُوَ العَزيزُ الحَكيمُ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna hādhā la-huwa l-qaṣaṣu l-ḥaqqu wa-mā min ʾilāhin ʾillā llāhu wa-ʾinna llāha la-huwa l-ʿazīzu l-ḥakīmu

TRANSLATION This is indeed the true account, for sure. There is no god but Allah, and indeed Allah is the All-mighty, the All-wise.

TRANSLATION Say, ‘O People of the Book! Come to a word common between us and you: that we will worship no one but Allah, and that we will not ascribe any partner to Him, and that we will not take each other as lords besides Allah.’ But if they turn away, say, ‘Be witnesses that we are muslims.’ 1 That is, those who have submitted to Allah. 65 يا أَهلَ الكِتابِ لِمَ تُحاجّونَ في إِبراهيمَ وَما أُنزِلَتِ التَّوراةُ وَالإِنجيلُ إِلّا مِن بَعدِهِ ۚ أَفَلا تَعقِلونَ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾahla l-kitābi li-ma tuḥājjūna fī ʾibrāhīma wa-mā ʾunzilati t-tawrātu wa-l-ʾinjīlu ʾillā min baʿdihī ʾa-fa-lā taʿqilūna

TRANSLATION O People of the Book! Why do you argue concerning Abraham? Neither the Torah nor the Evangel were sent down until [long] after him. Do you not apply reason?

66 ها أَنتُم هٰؤُلاءِ حاجَجتُم فيما لَكُم بِهِ عِلمٌ فَلِمَ تُحاجّونَ فيما لَيسَ لَكُم بِهِ عِلمٌ ۚ وَاللَّهُ يَعلَمُ وَأَنتُم لا تَعلَمونَ TRANSLITERATION hā-ʾantum hāʾulāʾi ḥājajtum fī-mā lakum bihī ʿilmun fa-li-ma tuḥājjūna fī-mā laysa lakum bihī ʿilmun wa-llāhu yaʿlamu wa-ʾantum lā taʿlamūna

TRANSLATION Ah! You are the very ones who argue about that of which you have knowledge. Why then do you argue about that of which you have no knowledge? And Allah knows and you do not know.

TRANSLATION Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian. Rather he was a ḥanīf, a muslim, and he was not one of the polytheists.

68 إِنَّ أَولَى النّاسِ بِإِبراهيمَ لَلَّذينَ اتَّبَعوهُ وَهٰذَا النَّبِيُّ وَالَّذينَ آمَنوا ۗ وَاللَّهُ وَلِيُّ المُؤمِنينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna ʾawlā n-nāsi bi-ʾibrāhīma la-lladhīna ttabaʿūhu wa-hādhā n-nabiyyu wa-lladhīna ʾāmanū wa-llāhu waliyyu l-muʾminīna

TRANSLATION Indeed the nearest of all people to Abraham are those who follow him, and this prophet and those who have faith, and Allah is the guardian of the faithful.

TRANSLATION O People of the Book! Why do you defy Allah’s signs while you testify [to their truth]?

72 وَقالَت طائِفَةٌ مِن أَهلِ الكِتابِ آمِنوا بِالَّذي أُنزِلَ عَلَى الَّذينَ آمَنوا وَجهَ النَّهارِ وَاكفُروا آخِرَهُ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-qālat ṭāʾifatun min ʾahli l-kitābi ʾāminū bi-lladhī ʾunzila ʿalā lladhīna ʾāmanū wajha n-nahāri wa-kfurū ʾākhirahū laʿallahum yarjiʿūna

TRANSLATION A group of the People of the Book say, ‘Believe in what has been sent down to the faithful at the beginning of the day, and disbelieve at its end, so that they may turn back [from their religion].’

73 وَلا تُؤمِنوا إِلّا لِمَن تَبِعَ دينَكُم قُل إِنَّ الهُدىٰ هُدَى اللَّهِ أَن يُؤتىٰ أَحَدٌ مِثلَ ما أوتيتُم أَو يُحاجّوكُم عِندَ رَبِّكُم ۗ قُل إِنَّ الفَضلَ بِيَدِ اللَّهِ يُؤتيهِ مَن يَشاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ واسِعٌ عَليمٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā tuʾminū ʾillā li-man tabiʿa dīnakum qul ʾinna l-hudā hudā llāhi ʾan yuʾtā ʾaḥadun mithla mā ʾūtītum ʾaw yuḥājjūkum ʿinda rabbikum qul ʾinna l-faḍla bi-yadi llāhi yuʾtīhi man yashāʾu wa-llāhu wāsiʿun ʿalīmun

TRANSLATION ‘And do not believe anyone except him who follows your religion.’ Say, ‘Indeed [true] guidance is the guidance of Allah.’ ‘[And do not believe] that anyone may be given the like of what you were given, or that he may argue with you before your Lord.’1 Say, ‘Indeed all grace is in Allah’s hand; He grants it to whomever He wishes, and Allah is all-bounteous, all-knowing. This is in accordance with where the Jews are described as making a similar statement. Alternatively, it may be understood as being part of the reply the Prophet is asked to give to the Jews, in which case the translation will be as follows: ‘Say, “Indeed [true] guidance is the guidance of Allah, so that anyone may be given the like of what you were given, or that he may argue with you before your Lord.” ’ 74 يَختَصُّ بِرَحمَتِهِ مَن يَشاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الفَضلِ العَظيمِ TRANSLITERATION yakhtaṣṣu bi-raḥmatihī man yashāʾu wa-llāhu dhū l-faḍli l-ʿaẓīmi

TRANSLATION He singles out for His mercy whomever He wishes, and Allah is dispenser of a great grace.’

75 ۞ وَمِن أَهلِ الكِتابِ مَن إِن تَأمَنهُ بِقِنطارٍ يُؤَدِّهِ إِلَيكَ وَمِنهُم مَن إِن تَأمَنهُ بِدينارٍ لا يُؤَدِّهِ إِلَيكَ إِلّا ما دُمتَ عَلَيهِ قائِمًا ۗ ذٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُم قالوا لَيسَ عَلَينا فِي الأُمِّيّينَ سَبيلٌ وَيَقولونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ الكَذِبَ وَهُم يَعلَمونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-min ʾahli l-kitābi man ʾin taʾmanhu bi-qinṭārin yuʾaddihī ʾilayka wa-minhum man ʾin taʾmanhu bi-dīnārin lā yuʾaddihī ʾilayka ʾillā mā dumta ʿalayhi qāʾiman dhālika bi-ʾannahum qālū laysa ʿalaynā fī l-ʾummiyyīna sabīlun wa-yaqūlūna ʿalā llāhi l-kadhiba wa-hum yaʿlamūna

TRANSLATION And among the People of the Book is he who if you entrust him with a quintal1 will repay it to you, and among them is he who, if you entrust him with a dinar will not repay it to you unless you stand persistently over him. That is because they say, ‘We have no obligation to the non-Jews.’ But they attribute lies to Allah, and they know [it]. Quintal: hundredweight. The American Heritage Dictionary gives the following history of the English ‘quintal’: Middle English, a unit of weight, from Old French, from Medieval Latin quintāle, from Arabic qinṭār, from Late Greek kentēnarion, from Late Latin centēnārium (pondus), hundred(weight), from Latin centēnārius, of a hundred. 76 بَلىٰ مَن أَوفىٰ بِعَهدِهِ وَاتَّقىٰ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ المُتَّقينَ TRANSLITERATION balā man ʾawfā bi-ʿahdihī wa-ttaqā fa-ʾinna llāha yuḥibbu l-muttaqīna

TRANSLATION Yes, whoever fulfills his commitments and is wary of Allah —Allah indeed loves the Godwary.

77 إِنَّ الَّذينَ يَشتَرونَ بِعَهدِ اللَّهِ وَأَيمانِهِم ثَمَنًا قَليلًا أُولٰئِكَ لا خَلاقَ لَهُم فِي الآخِرَةِ وَلا يُكَلِّمُهُمُ اللَّهُ وَلا يَنظُرُ إِلَيهِم يَومَ القِيامَةِ وَلا يُزَكّيهِم وَلَهُم عَذابٌ أَليمٌ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna lladhīna yashtarūna bi-ʿahdi llāhi wa-ʾaymānihim thamanan qalīlan ʾulāʾika lā khalāqa lahum fī l-ʾākhirati wa-lā yukallimuhumu llāhu wa-lā yanẓuru ʾilayhim yawma l-qiyāmati wa-lā yuzakkīhim wa-lahum ʿadhābun ʾalīmun

TRANSLATION Those who sell Allah’s covenant and their oaths for a paltry gain— there shall be no share for them in the Hereafter and Allah will not speak to them nor will He [so much as] look at them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them, and there is a painful punishment for them.

78 وَإِنَّ مِنهُم لَفَريقًا يَلوونَ أَلسِنَتَهُم بِالكِتابِ لِتَحسَبوهُ مِنَ الكِتابِ وَما هُوَ مِنَ الكِتابِ وَيَقولونَ هُوَ مِن عِندِ اللَّهِ وَما هُوَ مِن عِندِ اللَّهِ وَيَقولونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ الكَذِبَ وَهُم يَعلَمونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾinna minhum la-farīqan yalwūna ʾalsinatahum bi-l-kitābi li-taḥsabūhu mina l-kitābi wa-mā huwa mina l-kitābi wa-yaqūlūna huwa min ʿindi llāhi wa-mā huwa min ʿindi llāhi wa-yaqūlūna ʿalā llāhi l-kadhiba wa-hum yaʿlamūna

TRANSLATION There is indeed a group of them who twist their tongues to mimic the Book, that you may suppose that it is from the Book, though it is not from the Book, and they say, ‘It is from Allah,’ though it is not from Allah, and they attribute lies to Allah, and they know [it].

79 ما كانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُؤتِيَهُ اللَّهُ الكِتابَ وَالحُكمَ وَالنُّبُوَّةَ ثُمَّ يَقولَ لِلنّاسِ كونوا عِبادًا لي مِن دونِ اللَّهِ وَلٰكِن كونوا رَبّانِيّينَ بِما كُنتُم تُعَلِّمونَ الكِتابَ وَبِما كُنتُم تَدرُسونَ TRANSLITERATION mā kāna li-basharin ʾan yuʾtiyahu llāhu l-kitāba wa-l-ḥukma wa-n-nubuwwata thumma yaqūla li-n-nāsi kūnū ʿibādan lī min dūni llāhi wa-lākin kūnū rabbāniyyīna bi-mā kuntum tuʿallimūna l-kitāba wa-bi-mā kuntum tadrusūna

TRANSLATION It does not behoove any human that Allah should give him the Book, judgement and prophethood, and then he should say to the people, ‘Be my servants instead of Allah.’ Rather [he would say], ‘Be a godly people, because of your teaching the Book and because of your studying it.’

80 وَلا يَأمُرَكُم أَن تَتَّخِذُوا المَلائِكَةَ وَالنَّبِيّينَ أَربابًا ۗ أَيَأمُرُكُم بِالكُفرِ بَعدَ إِذ أَنتُم مُسلِمونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā yaʾmurakum ʾan tattakhidhū l-malāʾikata wa-n-nabiyyīna ʾarbāban ʾa-yaʾmurukum bi-l-kufri baʿda ʾidh ʾantum muslimūna

TRANSLATION And he would not command you to take the angels and the prophets for lords. Would he call you to unfaith after you have been muslims?

81 وَإِذ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ ميثاقَ النَّبِيّينَ لَما آتَيتُكُم مِن كِتابٍ وَحِكمَةٍ ثُمَّ جاءَكُم رَسولٌ مُصَدِّقٌ لِما مَعَكُم لَتُؤمِنُنَّ بِهِ وَلَتَنصُرُنَّهُ ۚ قالَ أَأَقرَرتُم وَأَخَذتُم عَلىٰ ذٰلِكُم إِصري ۖ قالوا أَقرَرنا ۚ قالَ فَاشهَدوا وَأَنا مَعَكُم مِنَ الشّاهِدينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾidh ʾakhadha llāhu mīthāqa n-nabiyyīna la-mā ʾātaytukum min kitābin wa-ḥikmatin thumma jāʾakum rasūlun muṣaddiqun li-mā maʿakum la-tuʾminunna bihī wa-la-tanṣurunnahū qāla ʾa-ʾaqrartum wa-ʾakhadhtum ʿalā dhālikum ʾiṣrī qālū ʾaqrarnā qāla fa-shhadū wa-ʾana maʿakum mina sh-shāhidīna

TRANSLATION When Allah took a compact concerning the prophets, [He said,] ‘Inasmuch as I have given you of the Book and wisdom,1 should an apostle come to you thereafter confirming what is with you, you shall believe in him and help him.’ He said, ‘Do you pledge and accept My covenant on this condition?’ They said, ‘We pledge.’ He said, ‘Then be witnesses, and I am also among the witnesses along with you.’ Or, in accordance with an alternate reading (with lammā, instead of lamā), ‘Since I have given you of the Book and wisdom,’ or ‘As I have given you …’ 82 فَمَن تَوَلّىٰ بَعدَ ذٰلِكَ فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الفاسِقونَ TRANSLITERATION fa-man tawallā baʿda dhālika fa-ʾulāʾika humu l-fāsiqūna

TRANSLATION Then whoever turns away after that —it is they who are the transgressors.

83 أَفَغَيرَ دينِ اللَّهِ يَبغونَ وَلَهُ أَسلَمَ مَن فِي السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ طَوعًا وَكَرهًا وَإِلَيهِ يُرجَعونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾa-fa-ghayra dīni llāhi yabghūna wa-lahū ʾaslama man fī s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍi ṭawʿan wa-karhan wa-ʾilayhi yurjaʿūna

TRANSLATION Do they, then, seek a religion other than Allah’s, while to Him submits whoever there is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and to Him they will be brought back?

84 قُل آمَنّا بِاللَّهِ وَما أُنزِلَ عَلَينا وَما أُنزِلَ عَلىٰ إِبراهيمَ وَإِسماعيلَ وَإِسحاقَ وَيَعقوبَ وَالأَسباطِ وَما أوتِيَ موسىٰ وَعيسىٰ وَالنَّبِيّونَ مِن رَبِّهِم لا نُفَرِّقُ بَينَ أَحَدٍ مِنهُم وَنَحنُ لَهُ مُسلِمونَ TRANSLITERATION qul ʾāmannā bi-llāhi wa-mā ʾunzila ʿalaynā wa-mā ʾunzila ʿalā ʾibrāhīma wa-ʾismāʿīla wa-ʾisḥāqa wa-yaʿqūba wa-l-ʾasbāṭi wa-mā ʾūtiya mūsā wa-ʿīsā wa-n-nabiyyūna min rabbihim lā nufarriqu bayna ʾaḥadin minhum wa-naḥnu lahū muslimūna

TRANSLATION Say, ‘We have faith in Allah, and in what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, and that which Moses and Jesus were given, and the prophets, from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him do we submit.’

85 وَمَن يَبتَغِ غَيرَ الإِسلامِ دينًا فَلَن يُقبَلَ مِنهُ وَهُوَ فِي الآخِرَةِ مِنَ الخاسِرينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-man yabtaghi ghayra l-ʾislāmi dīnan fa-lan yuqbala minhu wa-huwa fī l-ʾākhirati mina l-khāsirīna

TRANSLATION Should anyone follow a religion other than Islam, it shall never be accepted from him, and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter.

86 كَيفَ يَهدِي اللَّهُ قَومًا كَفَروا بَعدَ إيمانِهِم وَشَهِدوا أَنَّ الرَّسولَ حَقٌّ وَجاءَهُمُ البَيِّناتُ ۚ وَاللَّهُ لا يَهدِي القَومَ الظّالِمينَ TRANSLITERATION kayfa yahdī llāhu qawman kafarū baʿda ʾīmānihim wa-shahidū ʾanna r-rasūla ḥaqqun wa-jāʾahumu l-bayyinātu wa-llāhu lā yahdī l-qawma ẓ-ẓālimīna

TRANSLATION How shall Allah guide a people who have disbelieved after their faith and [after] bearing witness that the Apostle is true, and [after] manifest proofs had come to them? Allah does not guide the wrongdoing lot.

87 أُولٰئِكَ جَزاؤُهُم أَنَّ عَلَيهِم لَعنَةَ اللَّهِ وَالمَلائِكَةِ وَالنّاسِ أَجمَعينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾulāʾika jazāʾuhum ʾanna ʿalayhim laʿnata llāhi wa-l-malāʾikati wa-n-nāsi ʾajmaʿīna

TRANSLATION Their requital is that there shall be upon them the curse of Allah, the angels, and all mankind.

88 خالِدينَ فيها لا يُخَفَّفُ عَنهُمُ العَذابُ وَلا هُم يُنظَرونَ TRANSLITERATION khālidīna fīhā lā yukhaffafu ʿanhumu l-ʿadhābu wa-lā hum yunẓarūna

TRANSLATION They will remain in it [forever], and their punishment shall not be lightened, nor will they be granted any respite,

89 إِلَّا الَّذينَ تابوا مِن بَعدِ ذٰلِكَ وَأَصلَحوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفورٌ رَحيمٌ TRANSLITERATION ʾillā lladhīna tābū min baʿdi dhālika wa-ʾaṣlaḥū fa-ʾinna llāha ghafūrun raḥīmun

TRANSLATION except such as repent after that and make amends, for Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful.

90 إِنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا بَعدَ إيمانِهِم ثُمَّ ازدادوا كُفرًا لَن تُقبَلَ تَوبَتُهُم وَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الضّالّونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna lladhīna kafarū baʿda ʾīmānihim thumma zdādū kufran lan tuqbala tawbatuhum wa-ʾulāʾika humu ḍ-ḍāllūna

TRANSLATION Indeed those who turn faithless after their faith, and then advance in faithlessness, their repentance will never be accepted, and it is they who are the astray.

91 إِنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا وَماتوا وَهُم كُفّارٌ فَلَن يُقبَلَ مِن أَحَدِهِم مِلءُ الأَرضِ ذَهَبًا وَلَوِ افتَدىٰ بِهِ ۗ أُولٰئِكَ لَهُم عَذابٌ أَليمٌ وَما لَهُم مِن ناصِرينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna lladhīna kafarū wa-mātū wa-hum kuffārun fa-lan yuqbala min ʾaḥadihim milʾu l-ʾarḍi dhahaban wa-lawi ftadā bihī ʾulāʾika lahum ʿadhābun ʾalīmun wa-mā lahum min nāṣirīna

TRANSLATION Indeed those who turn faithless, and die while they are faithless, a world of gold will not be accepted from any of them should he offer it for ransom. For such there will be a painful punishment, and they will have no helpers. 92 لَن تَنالُوا البِرَّ حَتّىٰ تُنفِقوا مِمّا تُحِبّونَ ۚ وَما تُنفِقوا مِن شَيءٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ بِهِ عَليمٌ TRANSLITERATION lan tanālū l-birra ḥattā tunfiqū mimmā tuḥibbūna wa-mā tunfiqū min shayʾin fa-ʾinna llāha bihī ʿalīmun

TRANSLATION You will never attain piety until you spend out of what you hold dear, and whatever you may spend of anything, Allah indeed knows it. 93 ۞ كُلُّ الطَّعامِ كانَ حِلًّا لِبَني إِسرائيلَ إِلّا ما حَرَّمَ إِسرائيلُ عَلىٰ نَفسِهِ مِن قَبلِ أَن تُنَزَّلَ التَّوراةُ ۗ قُل فَأتوا بِالتَّوراةِ فَاتلوها إِن كُنتُم صادِقينَ TRANSLITERATION kullu ṭ-ṭaʿāmi kāna ḥillan li-banī ʾisrāʾīla ʾillā mā ḥarrama ʾisrāʾīlu ʿalā nafsihī min qabli ʾan tunazzala t-tawrātu qul fa-ʾtū bi-t-tawrāti fa-tlūhā ʾin kuntum ṣādiqīna

TRANSLATION All food was lawful to the Children of Israel except what Israel1 had forbidden himself before the Torah was sent down. Say, ‘Bring the Torah, and read it, should you be truthful.’ That is Jacob (ʿa). 94 فَمَنِ افتَرىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ الكَذِبَ مِن بَعدِ ذٰلِكَ فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الظّالِمونَ TRANSLITERATION fa-mani ftarā ʿalā llāhi l-kadhiba min baʿdi dhālika fa-ʾulāʾika humu ẓ-ẓālimūna

TRANSLATION So whoever fabricates a lie against Allah after that —it is they who are the wrongdoers.

95 قُل صَدَقَ اللَّهُ ۗ فَاتَّبِعوا مِلَّةَ إِبراهيمَ حَنيفًا وَما كانَ مِنَ المُشرِكينَ TRANSLITERATION qul ṣadaqa llāhu fa-ttabiʿū millata ʾibrāhīma ḥanīfan wa-mā kāna mina l-mushrikīna

TRANSLATION Say, ‘Allah has spoken the truth; so follow the creed of Abraham, a ḥanīf, and he was not one of the polytheists.

96 إِنَّ أَوَّلَ بَيتٍ وُضِعَ لِلنّاسِ لَلَّذي بِبَكَّةَ مُبارَكًا وَهُدًى لِلعالَمينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna ʾawwala baytin wuḍiʿa li-n-nāsi la-lladhī bi-bakkata mubārakan wa-hudan li-l-ʿālamīna

TRANSLATION Indeed the first house to be set up for mankind is the one at Bakkah,1 blessed and a guidance for all nations. The Holy Mosque or the city of Makkah, or the territory where they stand. 97 فيهِ آياتٌ بَيِّناتٌ مَقامُ إِبراهيمَ ۖ وَمَن دَخَلَهُ كانَ آمِنًا ۗ وَلِلَّهِ عَلَى النّاسِ حِجُّ البَيتِ مَنِ استَطاعَ إِلَيهِ سَبيلًا ۚ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَنِيٌّ عَنِ العالَمينَ TRANSLITERATION fīhi ʾāyātun bayyinātun maqāmu ʾibrāhīma wa-man dakhalahū kāna ʾāminan wa-li-llāhi ʿalā n-nāsi ḥijju l-bayti mani staṭāʿa ʾilayhi sabīlan wa-man kafara fa-ʾinna llāha ghaniyyun ʿani l-ʿālamīna

TRANSLATION In it are manifest signs [and] Abraham’s Station, and whoever enters it shall be secure. And it is the duty of mankind toward Allah to make pilgrimage to the House —for those who can afford the journey to it— and should anyone renege [on his obligation], Allah is indeed without need of the creatures. 98 قُل يا أَهلَ الكِتابِ لِمَ تَكفُرونَ بِآياتِ اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ شَهيدٌ عَلىٰ ما تَعمَلونَ TRANSLITERATION qul yā-ʾahla l-kitābi li-ma takfurūna bi-ʾāyāti llāhi wa-llāhu shahīdun ʿalā mā taʿmalūna

TRANSLATION Say, ‘O People of the Book! Why do you defy the signs of Allah, while Allah is witness to what you do?’

99 قُل يا أَهلَ الكِتابِ لِمَ تَصُدّونَ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ مَن آمَنَ تَبغونَها عِوَجًا وَأَنتُم شُهَداءُ ۗ وَمَا اللَّهُ بِغافِلٍ عَمّا تَعمَلونَ TRANSLITERATION qul yā-ʾahla l-kitābi li-ma taṣuddūna ʿan sabīli llāhi man ʾāmana tabghūnahā ʿiwajan wa-ʾantum shuhadāʾu wa-mā llāhu bi-ghāfilin ʿammā taʿmalūna

TRANSLATION Say, ‘O People of the Book! why do you bar the faithful from the way of Allah, seeking to make it crooked, while you are witnesses [to its truthfulness]? And Allah is not oblivious of what you do.’ 100 يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا إِن تُطيعوا فَريقًا مِنَ الَّذينَ أوتُوا الكِتابَ يَرُدّوكُم بَعدَ إيمانِكُم كافِرينَ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾayyuhā lladhīna ʾāmanū ʾin tuṭīʿū farīqan mina lladhīna ʾūtū l-kitāba yaruddūkum baʿda ʾīmānikum kāfirīna

TRANSLATION O you who have faith, if you obey a part of those who were given the Book, they will turn you back, after your faith, into faithless ones.

101 وَكَيفَ تَكفُرونَ وَأَنتُم تُتلىٰ عَلَيكُم آياتُ اللَّهِ وَفيكُم رَسولُهُ ۗ وَمَن يَعتَصِم بِاللَّهِ فَقَد هُدِيَ إِلىٰ صِراطٍ مُستَقيمٍ TRANSLITERATION wa-kayfa takfurūna wa-ʾantum tutlā ʿalaykum ʾāyātu llāhi wa-fīkum rasūluhū wa-man yaʿtaṣim bi-llāhi fa-qad hudiya ʾilā ṣirāṭin mustaqīmin

TRANSLATION And how would you be faithless while the signs of Allah are recited to you and His Apostle is in your midst? And whoever takes recourse in Allah is certainly guided to a straight path.

102 يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقاتِهِ وَلا تَموتُنَّ إِلّا وَأَنتُم مُسلِمونَ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾayyuhā lladhīna ʾāmanū ttaqū llāha ḥaqqa tuqātihī wa-lā tamūtunna ʾillā wa-ʾantum muslimūna

TRANSLATION O you who have faith! Be wary of Allah with the wariness due to Him and do not die except as muslims.

103 وَاعتَصِموا بِحَبلِ اللَّهِ جَميعًا وَلا تَفَرَّقوا ۚ وَاذكُروا نِعمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيكُم إِذ كُنتُم أَعداءً فَأَلَّفَ بَينَ قُلوبِكُم فَأَصبَحتُم بِنِعمَتِهِ إِخوانًا وَكُنتُم عَلىٰ شَفا حُفرَةٍ مِنَ النّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِنها ۗ كَذٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُم آياتِهِ لَعَلَّكُم تَهتَدونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʿtaṣimū bi-ḥabli llāhi jamīʿan wa-lā tafarraqū wa-dhkurū niʿmata llāhi ʿalaykum ʾidh kuntum ʾaʿdāʾan fa-ʾallafa bayna qulūbikum fa-ʾaṣbaḥtum bi-niʿmatihī ʾikhwānan wa-kuntum ʿalā shafā ḥufratin mina n-nāri fa-ʾanqadhakum minhā ka-dhālika yubayyinu llāhu lakum ʾāyātihī laʿallakum tahtadūna

TRANSLATION Hold fast, all together, to Allah’s cord, and do not be divided [into sects]. And remember Allah’s blessing upon you when you were enemies, then He brought your hearts together, so you became brothers with His blessing. And you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, whereat He saved you from it. Thus does Allah clarify His signs for you so that you may be guided.

104 وَلتَكُن مِنكُم أُمَّةٌ يَدعونَ إِلَى الخَيرِ وَيَأمُرونَ بِالمَعروفِ وَيَنهَونَ عَنِ المُنكَرِ ۚ وَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ المُفلِحونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-l-takun minkum ʾummatun yadʿūna ʾilā l-khayri wa-yaʾmurūna bi-l-maʿrūfi wa-yanhawna ʿani l-munkari wa-ʾulāʾika humu l-mufliḥūna

TRANSLATION There has to be a nation among you summoning to the good, bidding what is right, and forbidding what is wrong. It is they who are the felicitous.

105 وَلا تَكونوا كَالَّذينَ تَفَرَّقوا وَاختَلَفوا مِن بَعدِ ما جاءَهُمُ البَيِّناتُ ۚ وَأُولٰئِكَ لَهُم عَذابٌ عَظيمٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā takūnū ka-lladhīna tafarraqū wa-khtalafū min baʿdi mā jāʾahumu l-bayyinātu wa-ʾulāʾika lahum ʿadhābun ʿaẓīmun

TRANSLATION Do not be like those who became divided [into sects] and differed after manifest signs had come to them. For such there will be a great punishment,

106 يَومَ تَبيَضُّ وُجوهٌ وَتَسوَدُّ وُجوهٌ ۚ فَأَمَّا الَّذينَ اسوَدَّت وُجوهُهُم أَكَفَرتُم بَعدَ إيمانِكُم فَذوقُوا العَذابَ بِما كُنتُم تَكفُرونَ TRANSLITERATION yawma tabyaḍḍu wujūhun wa-taswaddu wujūhun fa-ʾammā lladhīna swaddat wujūhuhum ʾa-kafartum baʿda ʾīmānikum fa-dhūqū l-ʿadhāba bi-mā kuntum takfurūna

TRANSLATION on the day when [some] faces will turn white and [some] faces will turn black. As for those whose faces turn black [it will be said to them], ‘Did you disbelieve after your faith? So taste the punishment because of what you used to disbelieve.’

107 وَأَمَّا الَّذينَ ابيَضَّت وُجوهُهُم فَفي رَحمَةِ اللَّهِ هُم فيها خالِدونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾammā lladhīna byaḍḍat wujūhuhum fa-fī raḥmati llāhi hum fīhā khālidūna

TRANSLATION But as for those whose faces become white, they shall dwell in Allah’s mercy, and they will remain in it [forever].

TRANSLATION These are the signs of Allah which We recite to you in truth, and Allah does not desire any wrong for the creatures.

109 وَلِلَّهِ ما فِي السَّماواتِ وَما فِي الأَرضِ ۚ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ تُرجَعُ الأُمورُ TRANSLITERATION wa-li-llāhi mā fī s-samāwāti wa-mā fī l-ʾarḍi wa-ʾilā llāhi turjaʿu l-ʾumūru

TRANSLATION To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and to Allah all matters are returned.

110 كُنتُم خَيرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخرِجَت لِلنّاسِ تَأمُرونَ بِالمَعروفِ وَتَنهَونَ عَنِ المُنكَرِ وَتُؤمِنونَ بِاللَّهِ ۗ وَلَو آمَنَ أَهلُ الكِتابِ لَكانَ خَيرًا لَهُم ۚ مِنهُمُ المُؤمِنونَ وَأَكثَرُهُمُ الفاسِقونَ TRANSLITERATION kuntum khayra ʾummatin ʾukhrijat li-n-nāsi taʾmurūna bi-l-maʿrūfi wa-tanhawna ʿani l-munkari wa-tuʾminūna bi-l-llāhi wa-law ʾāmana ʾahlu l-kitābi la-kāna khayran lahum minhumu l-muʾminūna wa-ʾaktharuhumu l-fāsiqūna

TRANSLATION You are the best nation [ever] brought forth for mankind: you bid what is right and forbid what is wrong, and have faith in Allah. And if the People of the Book had believed, it would have been better for them. Among them [some] are faithful, but most of them are transgressors.

111 لَن يَضُرّوكُم إِلّا أَذًى ۖ وَإِن يُقاتِلوكُم يُوَلّوكُمُ الأَدبارَ ثُمَّ لا يُنصَرونَ TRANSLITERATION lan yaḍurrūkum ʾillā ʾadhan wa-ʾin yuqātilūkum yuwallūkumu l-ʾadbāra thumma lā yunṣarūna

TRANSLATION They1 will never do you any harm, except for some hurt; and if they fight you, they will turn their backs [to flee], then they will not be helped. That is, the Jews. 112 ضُرِبَت عَلَيهِمُ الذِّلَّةُ أَينَ ما ثُقِفوا إِلّا بِحَبلٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَحَبلٍ مِنَ النّاسِ وَباءوا بِغَضَبٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَضُرِبَت عَلَيهِمُ المَسكَنَةُ ۚ ذٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُم كانوا يَكفُرونَ بِآياتِ اللَّهِ وَيَقتُلونَ الأَنبِياءَ بِغَيرِ حَقٍّ ۚ ذٰلِكَ بِما عَصَوا وَكانوا يَعتَدونَ TRANSLITERATION ḍuribat ʿalayhimu dh-dhillatu ʾayna mā thuqifū ʾillā bi-ḥablin mina llāhi wa-ḥablin mina n-nāsi wa-bāʾū bi-ghaḍabin mina llāhi wa-ḍuribat ʿalayhimu l-maskanatu dhālika bi-ʾannahum kānū yakfurūna bi-ʾāyāti llāhi wa-yaqtulūna l-ʾanbiyāʾa bi-ghayri ḥaqqin dhālika bi-mā ʿaṣaw wa-kānū yaʿtadūna

TRANSLATION Abasement has been stamped upon them wherever they are confronted, except for an asylum from Allah and an asylum from the people; and they earned the wrath of Allah, and poverty was stamped upon them. That, because they would defy the signs of Allah and kill the prophets unjustly. That, because they would disobey and used to commit transgression.

113 ۞ لَيسوا سَواءً ۗ مِن أَهلِ الكِتابِ أُمَّةٌ قائِمَةٌ يَتلونَ آياتِ اللَّهِ آناءَ اللَّيلِ وَهُم يَسجُدونَ TRANSLITERATION laysū sawāʾan min ʾahli l-kitābi ʾummatun qāʾimatun yatlūna ʾāyāti llāhi ʾānāʾa l-layli wa-hum yasjudūna

TRANSLATION Yet they are not all alike. Among the People of the Book is an upright nation; they recite Allah’s signs in the watches of the night and prostrate.

114 يُؤمِنونَ بِاللَّهِ وَاليَومِ الآخِرِ وَيَأمُرونَ بِالمَعروفِ وَيَنهَونَ عَنِ المُنكَرِ وَيُسارِعونَ فِي الخَيراتِ وَأُولٰئِكَ مِنَ الصّالِحينَ TRANSLITERATION yuʾminūna bi-llāhi wa-l-yawmi l-ʾākhiri wa-yaʾmurūna bi-l-maʿrūfi wa-yanhawna ʿani l-munkari wa-yusāriʿūna fī l-khayrāti wa-ʾulāʾika mina ṣ-ṣāliḥīna

TRANSLATION They have faith in Allah and the Last Day, and bid what is right and forbid what is wrong, and are active in [performing] good deeds. They are among the righteous.

115 وَما يَفعَلوا مِن خَيرٍ فَلَن يُكفَروهُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَليمٌ بِالمُتَّقينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-mā yafʿalū min khayrin fa-lan yukfarūhu wa-llāhu ʿalīmun bi-l-muttaqīna

TRANSLATION And whatever good they do, they will not go unappreciated for it, and Allah knows best the Godwary. 116 إِنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لَن تُغنِيَ عَنهُم أَموالُهُم وَلا أَولادُهُم مِنَ اللَّهِ شَيئًا ۖ وَأُولٰئِكَ أَصحابُ النّارِ ۚ هُم فيها خالِدونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna lladhīna kafarū lan tughniya ʿanhum ʾamwāluhum wa-lā ʾawlāduhum mina llāhi shayʾan wa-ʾulāʾika ʾaṣḥābu n-nāri hum fīhā khālidūna

TRANSLATION As for the faithless, neither their wealth nor their children will avail them anything against Allah. They shall be the inmates of the Fire, and they shall remain in it [forever].

117 مَثَلُ ما يُنفِقونَ في هٰذِهِ الحَياةِ الدُّنيا كَمَثَلِ ريحٍ فيها صِرٌّ أَصابَت حَرثَ قَومٍ ظَلَموا أَنفُسَهُم فَأَهلَكَتهُ ۚ وَما ظَلَمَهُمُ اللَّهُ وَلٰكِن أَنفُسَهُم يَظلِمونَ TRANSLITERATION mathalu mā yunfiqūna fī hādhihi l-ḥayāti d-dunyā ka-mathali rīḥin fīhā ṣirrun ʾaṣābat ḥartha qawmin ẓalamū ʾanfusahum fa-ʾahlakathu wa-mā ẓalamahumu llāhu wa-lākin ʾanfusahum yaẓlimūna

TRANSLATION The parable of what they spend in the life of this world is that of a cold wind that strikes the tillage of a people who wronged themselves, destroying it. Allah does not wrong them, but they wrong themselves.

118 يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا لا تَتَّخِذوا بِطانَةً مِن دونِكُم لا يَألونَكُم خَبالًا وَدّوا ما عَنِتُّم قَد بَدَتِ البَغضاءُ مِن أَفواهِهِم وَما تُخفي صُدورُهُم أَكبَرُ ۚ قَد بَيَّنّا لَكُمُ الآياتِ ۖ إِن كُنتُم تَعقِلونَ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾayyuhā lladhīna ʾāmanū lā tattakhidhū biṭānatan min dūnikum lā yaʾlūnakum khabālan waddū mā ʿanittum qad badati l-baghḍāʾu min ʾafwāhihim wa-mā tukhfī ṣudūruhum ʾakbaru qad bayyannā lakumu l-ʾāyāti ʾin kuntum taʿqilūna

TRANSLATION O you who have faith! Do not take your confidants from others than yourselves; they will spare nothing to ruin you. They are eager to see you in distress. Hatred has already shown itself from their mouths, and what their breasts hide [within] is yet worse. We have certainly made the signs clear for you, should you apply reason.

119 ها أَنتُم أُولاءِ تُحِبّونَهُم وَلا يُحِبّونَكُم وَتُؤمِنونَ بِالكِتابِ كُلِّهِ وَإِذا لَقوكُم قالوا آمَنّا وَإِذا خَلَوا عَضّوا عَلَيكُمُ الأَنامِلَ مِنَ الغَيظِ ۚ قُل موتوا بِغَيظِكُم ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَليمٌ بِذاتِ الصُّدورِ TRANSLITERATION hā-ʾantum ʾulāʾi tuḥibbūnahum wa-lā yuḥibbūnakum wa-tuʾminūna bi-l-kitābi kullihī wa-ʾidhā laqūkum qālū ʾāmannā wa-ʾidhā khalaw ʿaḍḍū ʿalaykumu l-ʾanāmila mina l-ghayẓi qul mūtū bi-ghayẓikum ʾinna llāha ʿalīmun bi-dhāti ṣ-ṣudūri

TRANSLATION Ah! You are the ones who bear love towards them, while they do not love you, though you believe in all the Books; and when they meet you, they say, ‘We believe,’ but when they are alone, they bite their fingertips out of rage at you. Say, ‘Die of your rage!’ Indeed Allah knows best what is in the breasts.

120 إِن تَمسَسكُم حَسَنَةٌ تَسُؤهُم وَإِن تُصِبكُم سَيِّئَةٌ يَفرَحوا بِها ۖ وَإِن تَصبِروا وَتَتَّقوا لا يَضُرُّكُم كَيدُهُم شَيئًا ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِما يَعمَلونَ مُحيطٌ TRANSLITERATION ʾin tamsaskum ḥasanatun tasuʾhum wa-ʾin tuṣibkum sayyiʾatun yafraḥū bihā wa-ʾin taṣbirū wa-tattaqū lā yaḍurrukum kayduhum shayʾan ʾinna llāha bi-mā yaʿmalūna muḥīṭun

TRANSLATION If some good should befall you, it upsets them, but if some ill should befall you, they rejoice at it. Yet if you are patient and Godwary, their guile will not harm you in any way. Indeed Allah comprehends what they do. 121 وَإِذ غَدَوتَ مِن أَهلِكَ تُبَوِّئُ المُؤمِنينَ مَقاعِدَ لِلقِتالِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ سَميعٌ عَليمٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾidh ghadawta min ʾahlika tubawwiʾu l-muʾminīna maqāʿida li-l-qitāli wa-llāhu samīʿun ʿalīmun

TRANSLATION When you left your family at dawn to settle the faithful in their positions for battle —and Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing.

122 إِذ هَمَّت طائِفَتانِ مِنكُم أَن تَفشَلا وَاللَّهُ وَلِيُّهُما ۗ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَليَتَوَكَّلِ المُؤمِنونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾidh hammat ṭāʾifatāni minkum ʾan tafshalā wa-llāhu waliyyuhumā wa-ʿalā llāhi fa-l-yatawakkali l-muʾminūna

TRANSLATION When two groups among you were about to lose courage, —though Allah is their guardian, and in Allah let all the faithful put their trust.

123 وَلَقَد نَصَرَكُمُ اللَّهُ بِبَدرٍ وَأَنتُم أَذِلَّةٌ ۖ فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُم تَشكُرونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-la-qad naṣarakumu llāhu bi-badrin wa-ʾantum ʾadhillatun fa-ttaqū llāha laʿallakum tashkurūna

TRANSLATION Certainly Allah helped you at Badr, when you were abased [in the enemy’s eyes]. So be wary of Allah so that you may give thanks.

124 إِذ تَقولُ لِلمُؤمِنينَ أَلَن يَكفِيَكُم أَن يُمِدَّكُم رَبُّكُم بِثَلاثَةِ آلافٍ مِنَ المَلائِكَةِ مُنزَلينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾidh taqūlu li-l-muʾminīna ʾa-lan yakfiyakum ʾan yumiddakum rabbukum bi-thalāthati ʾālāfin mina l-malāʾikati munzalīna

TRANSLATION When you were saying to the faithful, ‘Is it not enough for you that your Lord should aid you with three thousand angels sent down?’

125 بَلىٰ ۚ إِن تَصبِروا وَتَتَّقوا وَيَأتوكُم مِن فَورِهِم هٰذا يُمدِدكُم رَبُّكُم بِخَمسَةِ آلافٍ مِنَ المَلائِكَةِ مُسَوِّمينَ TRANSLITERATION balā ʾin taṣbirū wa-tattaqū wa-yaʾtūkum min fawrihim hādhā yumdidkum rabbukum bi-khamsati ʾālāfin mina l-malāʾikati musawwimīna

TRANSLATION Yes, if you are steadfast and Godwary, and should they come at you suddenly, your Lord will aid you with five thousand marked angels.

126 وَما جَعَلَهُ اللَّهُ إِلّا بُشرىٰ لَكُم وَلِتَطمَئِنَّ قُلوبُكُم بِهِ ۗ وَمَا النَّصرُ إِلّا مِن عِندِ اللَّهِ العَزيزِ الحَكيمِ TRANSLITERATION wa-mā jaʿalahu llāhu ʾillā bushrā lakum wa-li-taṭmaʾinna qulūbukum bihī wa-mā n-naṣru ʾillā min ʿindi llāhi l-ʿazīzi l-ḥakīmi

TRANSLATION Allah did not appoint it but as a good news for you, and to reassure with it your hearts, and victory1 comes only from Allah, the All-mighty, the All-wise, Or ‘help.’ 127 لِيَقطَعَ طَرَفًا مِنَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا أَو يَكبِتَهُم فَيَنقَلِبوا خائِبينَ TRANSLITERATION li-yaqṭaʿa ṭarafan mina lladhīna kafarū ʾaw yakbitahum fa-yanqalibū khāʾibīna

TRANSLATION that He may cut down a section of the faithless, or subdue them, so that they retreat disappointed.

128 لَيسَ لَكَ مِنَ الأَمرِ شَيءٌ أَو يَتوبَ عَلَيهِم أَو يُعَذِّبَهُم فَإِنَّهُم ظالِمونَ TRANSLITERATION laysa laka mina l-ʾamri shayʾun ʾaw yatūba ʿalayhim ʾaw yuʿadhdhibahum fa-ʾinnahum ẓālimūna

TRANSLATION You have no hand in the matter, whether He accepts their repentance or punishes them, for they are indeed wrongdoers.

129 وَلِلَّهِ ما فِي السَّماواتِ وَما فِي الأَرضِ ۚ يَغفِرُ لِمَن يَشاءُ وَيُعَذِّبُ مَن يَشاءُ ۚ وَاللَّهُ غَفورٌ رَحيمٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-li-llāhi mā fī s-samāwāti wa-mā fī l-ʾarḍi yaghfiru li-man yashāʾu wa-yuʿadhdhibu man yashāʾu wa-llāhu ghafūrun raḥīmun

TRANSLATION To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth: He forgives whomever He wishes and punishes whomever He wishes, and Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful. 130 يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا لا تَأكُلُوا الرِّبا أَضعافًا مُضاعَفَةً ۖ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُم تُفلِحونَ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾayyuhā lladhīna ʾāmanū lā taʾkulū r-ribā ʾaḍʿāfan muḍāʿafatan wa-ttaqū llāha laʿallakum tufliḥūna

TRANSLATION O you who have faith! Do not exact usury, twofold and severalfold, and be wary of Allah so that you may be felicitous.

131 وَاتَّقُوا النّارَ الَّتي أُعِدَّت لِلكافِرينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ttaqū n-nāra llatī ʾuʿiddat li-l-kāfirīna

TRANSLATION And beware of the Fire which has been prepared for the faithless,

132 وَأَطيعُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسولَ لَعَلَّكُم تُرحَمونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾaṭīʿū llāha wa-r-rasūla laʿallakum turḥamūna

TRANSLATION and obey Allah and the Apostle so that you may be granted [His] mercy.

133 ۞ وَسارِعوا إِلىٰ مَغفِرَةٍ مِن رَبِّكُم وَجَنَّةٍ عَرضُهَا السَّماواتُ وَالأَرضُ أُعِدَّت لِلمُتَّقينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-sāriʿū ʾilā maghfiratin min rabbikum wa-jannatin ʿarḍuhā s-samāwātu wa-l-ʾarḍu ʾuʿiddat li-l-muttaqīna

TRANSLATION And hasten towards your Lord’s forgiveness and a paradise as vast as the heavens and the earth, prepared for the Godwary

134 الَّذينَ يُنفِقونَ فِي السَّرّاءِ وَالضَّرّاءِ وَالكاظِمينَ الغَيظَ وَالعافينَ عَنِ النّاسِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ المُحسِنينَ TRANSLITERATION alladhīna yunfiqūna fī s-sarrāʾi wa-ḍ-ḍarrāʾi wa-l-kāẓimīna l-ghayẓa wa-l-ʿāfīna ʿani n-nāsi wa-llāhu yuḥibbu l-muḥsinīna

TRANSLATION —those who spend in ease and adversity, and suppress their anger, and excuse [the faults of] the people, and Allah loves the virtuous;

135 وَالَّذينَ إِذا فَعَلوا فاحِشَةً أَو ظَلَموا أَنفُسَهُم ذَكَرُوا اللَّهَ فَاستَغفَروا لِذُنوبِهِم وَمَن يَغفِرُ الذُّنوبَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَلَم يُصِرّوا عَلىٰ ما فَعَلوا وَهُم يَعلَمونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-lladhīna ʾidhā faʿalū fāḥishatan ʾaw ẓalamū ʾanfusahum dhakarū llāha fa-staghfarū li-dhunūbihim wa-man yaghfiru dh-dhunūba ʾillā llāhu wa-lam yuṣirrū ʿalā mā faʿalū wa-hum yaʿlamūna

TRANSLATION and those who, when they commit an indecent act or wrong themselves, remember Allah, and plead [Allah’s] forgiveness for their sins —and who forgives sins except Allah?— and who do not persist in what they have committed while they know.

136 أُولٰئِكَ جَزاؤُهُم مَغفِرَةٌ مِن رَبِّهِم وَجَنّاتٌ تَجري مِن تَحتِهَا الأَنهارُ خالِدينَ فيها ۚ وَنِعمَ أَجرُ العامِلينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾulāʾika jazāʾuhum maghfiratun min rabbihim wa-jannātun tajrī min taḥtihā l-ʾanhāru khālidīna fīhā wa-niʿma ʾajru l-ʿāmilīna

TRANSLATION Their reward is forgiveness from their Lord, and gardens with streams running in them, to remain in them [forever]. How excellent is the reward of the workers! 137 قَد خَلَت مِن قَبلِكُم سُنَنٌ فَسيروا فِي الأَرضِ فَانظُروا كَيفَ كانَ عاقِبَةُ المُكَذِّبينَ TRANSLITERATION qad khalat min qablikum sunanun fa-sīrū fī l-ʾarḍi fa-nẓurū kayfa kāna ʿāqibatu l-mukadhdhibīna

TRANSLATION Certain [Divine] precedents have passed before you. So travel over the land and then observe how was the fate of the deniers.

138 هٰذا بَيانٌ لِلنّاسِ وَهُدًى وَمَوعِظَةٌ لِلمُتَّقينَ TRANSLITERATION hādhā bayānun li-n-nāsi wa-hudan wa-mawʿiẓatun li-l-muttaqīna

TRANSLATION This is an explanation for mankind, and a guidance and advice for the Godwary. 139 وَلا تَهِنوا وَلا تَحزَنوا وَأَنتُمُ الأَعلَونَ إِن كُنتُم مُؤمِنينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā tahinū wa-lā taḥzanū wa-ʾantumu l-ʾaʿlawna ʾin kuntum muʾminīna

TRANSLATION Do not weaken or grieve: you shall have the upper hand, should you be faithful.

140 إِن يَمسَسكُم قَرحٌ فَقَد مَسَّ القَومَ قَرحٌ مِثلُهُ ۚ وَتِلكَ الأَيّامُ نُداوِلُها بَينَ النّاسِ وَلِيَعلَمَ اللَّهُ الَّذينَ آمَنوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنكُم شُهَداءَ ۗ وَاللَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ الظّالِمينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾin yamsaskum qarḥun fa-qad massa l-qawma qarḥun mithluhū wa-tilka l-ʾayyāmu nudāwiluhā bayna n-nāsi wa-li-yaʿlama llāhu lladhīna ʾāmanū wa-yattakhidha minkum shuhadāʾa wa-llāhu lā yuḥibbu ẓ-ẓālimīna

TRANSLATION If a wound afflicts you, a like wound has already afflicted those people; and We make such vicissitudes rotate among mankind, so that Allah may ascertain those who have faith, and that He may take martyrs1 from among you, and Allah does not like the wrongdoers. Or ‘witnesses.’ 141 وَلِيُمَحِّصَ اللَّهُ الَّذينَ آمَنوا وَيَمحَقَ الكافِرينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-li-yumaḥḥiṣa llāhu lladhīna ʾāmanū wa-yamḥaqa l-kāfirīna

TRANSLATION And so that Allah may purge those who have faith and that He may wipe out the faithless.

142 أَم حَسِبتُم أَن تَدخُلُوا الجَنَّةَ وَلَمّا يَعلَمِ اللَّهُ الَّذينَ جاهَدوا مِنكُم وَيَعلَمَ الصّابِرينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾam ḥasibtum ʾan tadkhulū l-jannata wa-lammā yaʿlami llāhu lladhīna jāhadū minkum wa-yaʿlama ṣ-ṣābirīna

TRANSLATION Do you suppose that you would enter paradise, while Allah has not yet ascertained those of you who have waged jihād and not ascertained the steadfast?

143 وَلَقَد كُنتُم تَمَنَّونَ المَوتَ مِن قَبلِ أَن تَلقَوهُ فَقَد رَأَيتُموهُ وَأَنتُم تَنظُرونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-la-qad kuntum tamannawna l-mawta min qabli ʾan talqawhu fa-qad raʾaytumūhu wa-ʾantum tanẓurūna

TRANSLATION Certainly you were longing for death before you had encountered it. Then certainly you saw it, as you looked on.

144 وَما مُحَمَّدٌ إِلّا رَسولٌ قَد خَلَت مِن قَبلِهِ الرُّسُلُ ۚ أَفَإِن ماتَ أَو قُتِلَ انقَلَبتُم عَلىٰ أَعقابِكُم ۚ وَمَن يَنقَلِب عَلىٰ عَقِبَيهِ فَلَن يَضُرَّ اللَّهَ شَيئًا ۗ وَسَيَجزِي اللَّهُ الشّاكِرينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-mā muḥammadun ʾillā rasūlun qad khalat min qablihi r-rusulu ʾa-fa-ʾin māta ʾaw qutila nqalabtum ʿalā ʾaʿqābikum wa-man yanqalib ʿalā ʿaqibayhi fa-lan yaḍurra llāha shayʾan wa-sa-yajzī llāhu sh-shākirīna

TRANSLATION Muḥammad is but an apostle; [other] apostles have passed before him. If he dies or is slain, will you turn back on your heels? Anyone who turns back on his heels will not harm Allah in the least, and soon Allah will reward the grateful.

145 وَما كانَ لِنَفسٍ أَن تَموتَ إِلّا بِإِذنِ اللَّهِ كِتابًا مُؤَجَّلًا ۗ وَمَن يُرِد ثَوابَ الدُّنيا نُؤتِهِ مِنها وَمَن يُرِد ثَوابَ الآخِرَةِ نُؤتِهِ مِنها ۚ وَسَنَجزِي الشّاكِرينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-mā kāna li-nafsin ʾan tamūta ʾillā bi-ʾidhni llāhi kitāban muʾajjalan wa-man yurid thawāba d-dunyā nuʾtihī minhā wa-man yurid thawāba l-ʾākhirati nuʾtihī minhā wa-sa-najzī sh-shākirīna

TRANSLATION No soul may die except by Allah’s leave, at an appointed time. Whoever desires the reward of this world, We will give him of it; and whoever desires the reward of the Hereafter, We will give him of it; and soon We will reward the grateful.

146 وَكَأَيِّن مِن نَبِيٍّ قاتَلَ مَعَهُ رِبِّيّونَ كَثيرٌ فَما وَهَنوا لِما أَصابَهُم في سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَما ضَعُفوا وَمَا استَكانوا ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ الصّابِرينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ka-ʾayyin min nabiyyin qātala maʿahū ribbiyyūna kathīrun fa-mā wahanū li-mā ʾaṣābahum fī sabīli llāhi wa-mā ḍaʿufū wa-mā stakānū wa-llāhu yuḥibbu ṣ-ṣābirīna

TRANSLATION How many a prophet there has been with whom a multitude of godly men fought. They did not falter for what befell them in the way of Allah, neither did they weaken, nor did they abase themselves; and Allah loves the steadfast.

147 وَما كانَ قَولَهُم إِلّا أَن قالوا رَبَّنَا اغفِر لَنا ذُنوبَنا وَإِسرافَنا في أَمرِنا وَثَبِّت أَقدامَنا وَانصُرنا عَلَى القَومِ الكافِرينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-mā kāna qawlahum ʾillā ʾan qālū rabbanā ghfir lanā dhunūbanā wa-ʾisrāfanā fī ʾamrinā wa-thabbit ʾaqdāmanā wa-nṣurnā ʿalā l-qawmi l-kāfirīna

TRANSLATION All that they said was, ‘Our Lord, forgive us our sins, and our excesses in our affairs, and make our feet steady, and help us against the faithless lot.’

148 فَآتاهُمُ اللَّهُ ثَوابَ الدُّنيا وَحُسنَ ثَوابِ الآخِرَةِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ المُحسِنينَ TRANSLITERATION fa-ʾātāhumu llāhu thawāba d-dunyā wa-ḥusna thawābi l-ʾākhirati wa-llāhu yuḥibbu l-muḥsinīna

TRANSLATION So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the fair reward of the Hereafter; and Allah loves the virtuous.

149 يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا إِن تُطيعُوا الَّذينَ كَفَروا يَرُدّوكُم عَلىٰ أَعقابِكُم فَتَنقَلِبوا خاسِرينَ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾayyuhā lladhīna ʾāmanū ʾin tuṭīʿū lladhīna kafarū yaruddūkum ʿalā ʾaʿqābikum fa-tanqalibū khāsirīna

TRANSLATION O you who have faith! If you obey the faithless, they will turn you back on your heels, and you will become losers.

150 بَلِ اللَّهُ مَولاكُم ۖ وَهُوَ خَيرُ النّاصِرينَ TRANSLITERATION bali llāhu mawlākum wa-huwa khayru n-nāṣirīna

TRANSLATION Rather Allah is your Master, and He is the best of helpers.

151 سَنُلقي في قُلوبِ الَّذينَ كَفَرُوا الرُّعبَ بِما أَشرَكوا بِاللَّهِ ما لَم يُنَزِّل بِهِ سُلطانًا ۖ وَمَأواهُمُ النّارُ ۚ وَبِئسَ مَثوَى الظّالِمينَ TRANSLITERATION sa-nulqī fī qulūbi lladhīna kafarū r-ruʿba bi-mā ʾashrakū bi-llāhi mā lam yunazzil bihī sulṭānan wa-maʾwāhumu n-nāru wa-biʾsa mathwā ẓ-ẓālimīna

TRANSLATION We shall cast terror into the hearts of the faithless because of their ascribing to Allah partners, for which He has not sent down any authority, and their refuge shall be the Fire, and evil is the [final] abode of the wrongdoers.

152 وَلَقَد صَدَقَكُمُ اللَّهُ وَعدَهُ إِذ تَحُسّونَهُم بِإِذنِهِ ۖ حَتّىٰ إِذا فَشِلتُم وَتَنازَعتُم فِي الأَمرِ وَعَصَيتُم مِن بَعدِ ما أَراكُم ما تُحِبّونَ ۚ مِنكُم مَن يُريدُ الدُّنيا وَمِنكُم مَن يُريدُ الآخِرَةَ ۚ ثُمَّ صَرَفَكُم عَنهُم لِيَبتَلِيَكُم ۖ وَلَقَد عَفا عَنكُم ۗ وَاللَّهُ ذو فَضلٍ عَلَى المُؤمِنينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-la-qad ṣadaqakumu llāhu waʿdahū ʾidh taḥussūnahum bi-ʾidhnihī ḥattā ʾidhā fashiltum wa-tanāzaʿtum fī l-ʾamri wa-ʿaṣaytum min baʿdi mā ʾarākum mā tuḥibbūna minkum man yurīdu d-dunyā wa-minkum man yurīdu l-ʾākhirata thumma ṣarafakum ʿanhum li-yabtaliyakum wa-la-qad ʿafā ʿankum wa-llāhu dhū faḍlin ʿalā l-muʾminīna

TRANSLATION Allah certainly fulfilled His promise to you when you were slaying them with His leave, until you lost courage, disputed about the matter, and disobeyed after He showed you what you loved.1 Some of you desire this world, and some of you desire the Hereafter. Then He turned you away from them so that He might test you. Certainly He has excused you, for Allah is gracious to the faithful. That is, the spoils of war. 153 ۞ إِذ تُصعِدونَ وَلا تَلوونَ عَلىٰ أَحَدٍ وَالرَّسولُ يَدعوكُم في أُخراكُم فَأَثابَكُم غَمًّا بِغَمٍّ لِكَيلا تَحزَنوا عَلىٰ ما فاتَكُم وَلا ما أَصابَكُم ۗ وَاللَّهُ خَبيرٌ بِما تَعمَلونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾidh tuṣʿidūna wa-lā talwūna ʿalā ʾaḥadin wa-r-rasūlu yadʿūkum fī ʾukhrākum fa-ʾathābakum ghamman bi-ghammin li-kay-lā taḥzanū ʿalā mā fātakum wa-lā mā ʾaṣābakum wa-llāhu khabīrun bi-mā taʿmalūna

TRANSLATION When you were fleeing without paying any attention to anyone, while the Apostle was calling you from your rear, He requited you with grief upon grief, so that you may not grieve for what you lose nor for what befalls you, and Allah is well aware of what you do.

154 ثُمَّ أَنزَلَ عَلَيكُم مِن بَعدِ الغَمِّ أَمَنَةً نُعاسًا يَغشىٰ طائِفَةً مِنكُم ۖ وَطائِفَةٌ قَد أَهَمَّتهُم أَنفُسُهُم يَظُنّونَ بِاللَّهِ غَيرَ الحَقِّ ظَنَّ الجاهِلِيَّةِ ۖ يَقولونَ هَل لَنا مِنَ الأَمرِ مِن شَيءٍ ۗ قُل إِنَّ الأَمرَ كُلَّهُ لِلَّهِ ۗ يُخفونَ في أَنفُسِهِم ما لا يُبدونَ لَكَ ۖ يَقولونَ لَو كانَ لَنا مِنَ الأَمرِ شَيءٌ ما قُتِلنا هاهُنا ۗ قُل لَو كُنتُم في بُيوتِكُم لَبَرَزَ الَّذينَ كُتِبَ عَلَيهِمُ القَتلُ إِلىٰ مَضاجِعِهِم ۖ وَلِيَبتَلِيَ اللَّهُ ما في صُدورِكُم وَلِيُمَحِّصَ ما في قُلوبِكُم ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَليمٌ بِذاتِ الصُّدورِ TRANSLITERATION thumma ʾanzala ʿalaykum min baʿdi l-ghammi ʾamanatan nuʿāsan yaghshā ṭāʾifatan minkum wa-ṭāʾifatun qad ʾahammathum ʾanfusuhum yaẓunnūna bi-llāhi ghayra l-ḥaqqi ẓanna l-jāhiliyyati yaqūlūna hal lanā mina l-ʾamri min shayʾin qul ʾinna l-ʾamra kullahū li-llāhi yukhfūna fī ʾanfusihim mā lā yubdūna laka yaqūlūna law kāna lanā mina l-ʾamri shayʾun mā qutilnā hāhunā qul law kuntum fī buyūtikum la-baraza lladhīna kutiba ʿalayhimu l-qatlu ʾilā maḍājiʿihim wa-li-yabtaliya llāhu mā fī ṣudūrikum wa-li-yumaḥḥiṣa mā fī qulūbikum wa-llāhu ʿalīmun bi-dhāti ṣ-ṣudūri

TRANSLATION Then He sent down to you safety after grief —a drowsiness that came over a group of you— while another group, anxious only about themselves, entertained false notions about Allah, notions of [pagan] ignorance. They say, ‘Do we have any role in the matter?’ Say, ‘Indeed the matter belongs totally to Allah.’ They hide in their hearts what they do not disclose to you. They say, ‘Had we any role in the matter, we would not have been slain here.’ Say, ‘Even if you had remained in your houses, those destined to be slain would have set out toward the places where they were laid to rest, so that Allah may test what is in your breasts, and that He may purge what is in your hearts, and Allah knows best what is in the breasts.’

155 إِنَّ الَّذينَ تَوَلَّوا مِنكُم يَومَ التَقَى الجَمعانِ إِنَّمَا استَزَلَّهُمُ الشَّيطانُ بِبَعضِ ما كَسَبوا ۖ وَلَقَد عَفَا اللَّهُ عَنهُم ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفورٌ حَليمٌ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna lladhīna tawallaw minkum yawma ltaqā l-jamʿāni ʾinnamā stazallahumu sh-shayṭānu bi-baʿḍi mā kasabū wa-la-qad ʿafā llāhu ʿanhum ʾinna llāha ghafūrun ḥalīmun

TRANSLATION Those of you who fled on the day when the two hosts met, only Satan had made them stumble because of some of their deeds. Certainly Allah has excused them, for Allah is all-forgiving, all-forbearing.

156 يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا لا تَكونوا كَالَّذينَ كَفَروا وَقالوا لِإِخوانِهِم إِذا ضَرَبوا فِي الأَرضِ أَو كانوا غُزًّى لَو كانوا عِندَنا ما ماتوا وَما قُتِلوا لِيَجعَلَ اللَّهُ ذٰلِكَ حَسرَةً في قُلوبِهِم ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُحيي وَيُميتُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بِما تَعمَلونَ بَصيرٌ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾayyuhā lladhīna ʾāmanū lā takūnū ka-lladhīna kafarū wa-qālū li-ʾikhwānihim ʾidhā ḍarabū fī l-ʾarḍi ʾaw kānū ghuzzan law kānū ʿindanā mā mātū wa-mā qutilū li-yajʿala llāhu dhālika ḥasratan fī qulūbihim wa-llāhu yuḥyī wa-yumītu wa-llāhu bi-mā taʿmalūna baṣīrun

TRANSLATION O you who have faith! Do not be like the faithless who say of their brethren, when they travel in the land or go into battle, ‘Had they stayed with us they would not have died or been killed,’ so that Allah may make it a regret in their hearts. But Allah gives life and brings death, and Allah sees best what you do.

157 وَلَئِن قُتِلتُم في سَبيلِ اللَّهِ أَو مُتُّم لَمَغفِرَةٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَرَحمَةٌ خَيرٌ مِمّا يَجمَعونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-la-ʾin qutiltum fī sabīli llāhi ʾaw muttum la-maghfiratun mina llāhi wa-raḥmatun khayrun mimmā yajmaʿūna

TRANSLATION If you are slain in the way of Allah, or die, surely forgiveness and mercy from Allah are better than what they amass.

158 وَلَئِن مُتُّم أَو قُتِلتُم لَإِلَى اللَّهِ تُحشَرونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-la-ʾin muttum ʾaw qutiltum la-ʾilā llāhi tuḥsharūna

TRANSLATION And if you die or are slain, you will surely be mustered toward Allah.

159 فَبِما رَحمَةٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ لِنتَ لَهُم ۖ وَلَو كُنتَ فَظًّا غَليظَ القَلبِ لَانفَضّوا مِن حَولِكَ ۖ فَاعفُ عَنهُم وَاستَغفِر لَهُم وَشاوِرهُم فِي الأَمرِ ۖ فَإِذا عَزَمتَ فَتَوَكَّل عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ المُتَوَكِّلينَ TRANSLITERATION fa-bi-mā raḥmatin mina llāhi linta lahum wa-law kunta faẓẓan ghalīẓa l-qalbi la-nfaḍḍū min ḥawlika fa-ʿfu ʿanhum wa-staghfir lahum wa-shāwirhum fī l-ʾamri fa-ʾidhā ʿazamta fa-tawakkal ʿalā llāhi ʾinna llāha yuḥibbu l-mutawakkilīna

TRANSLATION It is by Allah’s mercy that you are gentle to them; and had you been harsh and hardhearted, surely they would have scattered from around you. So excuse them, and plead for forgiveness for them, and consult them in the affairs, and once you are resolved, put your trust in Allah. Indeed Allah loves those who trust in Him.

160 إِن يَنصُركُمُ اللَّهُ فَلا غالِبَ لَكُم ۖ وَإِن يَخذُلكُم فَمَن ذَا الَّذي يَنصُرُكُم مِن بَعدِهِ ۗ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَليَتَوَكَّلِ المُؤمِنونَ TRANSLITERATION ʾin yanṣurkumu llāhu fa-lā ghāliba lakum wa-ʾin yakhdhulkum fa-man dhā lladhī yanṣurukum min baʿdihī wa-ʿalā llāhi fa-l-yatawakkali l-muʾminūna

TRANSLATION If Allah helps you, no one can overcome you, but if He forsakes you, who will help you after Him? So in Allah let all the faithful put their trust.

161 وَما كانَ لِنَبِيٍّ أَن يَغُلَّ ۚ وَمَن يَغلُل يَأتِ بِما غَلَّ يَومَ القِيامَةِ ۚ ثُمَّ تُوَفّىٰ كُلُّ نَفسٍ ما كَسَبَت وَهُم لا يُظلَمونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-mā kāna li-nabiyyin ʾan yaghulla wa-man yaghlul yaʾti bi-mā ghalla yawma l-qiyāmati thumma tuwaffā kullu nafsin mā kasabat wa-hum lā yuẓlamūna

TRANSLATION A prophet may not breach his trust, and whoever breaches his trust will bring his breaches on the Day of Resurrection; then every soul shall be recompensed fully for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged.

162 أَفَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ رِضوانَ اللَّهِ كَمَن باءَ بِسَخَطٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَمَأواهُ جَهَنَّمُ ۚ وَبِئسَ المَصيرُ TRANSLITERATION ʾa-fa-mani ttabaʿa riḍwāna llāhi ka-man bāʾa bi-sakhaṭin mina llāhi wa-maʾwāhu jahannamu wa-biʾsa l-maṣīru

TRANSLATION Is he who follows [the course of] Allah’s pleasure like him who earns Allah’s displeasure and whose refuge is hell, an evil destination?

163 هُم دَرَجاتٌ عِندَ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بَصيرٌ بِما يَعمَلونَ TRANSLITERATION hum darajātun ʿinda llāhi wa-llāhu baṣīrun bi-mā yaʿmalūna

TRANSLATION They have ranks with Allah, and Allah sees best what they do.

164 لَقَد مَنَّ اللَّهُ عَلَى المُؤمِنينَ إِذ بَعَثَ فيهِم رَسولًا مِن أَنفُسِهِم يَتلو عَلَيهِم آياتِهِ وَيُزَكّيهِم وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الكِتابَ وَالحِكمَةَ وَإِن كانوا مِن قَبلُ لَفي ضَلالٍ مُبينٍ TRANSLITERATION la-qad manna llāhu ʿalā l-muʾminīna ʾidh baʿatha fīhim rasūlan min ʾanfusihim yatlū ʿalayhim ʾāyātihī wa-yuzakkīhim wa-yuʿallimuhumu l-kitāba wa-l-ḥikmata wa-ʾin kānū min qablu la-fī ḍalālin mubīnin

TRANSLATION Allah certainly favoured the faithful when He raised up among them an apostle from among themselves to recite to them His signs and to purify them, and to teach them the Book and wisdom, and earlier they had indeed been in manifest error.

165 أَوَلَمّا أَصابَتكُم مُصيبَةٌ قَد أَصَبتُم مِثلَيها قُلتُم أَنّىٰ هٰذا ۖ قُل هُوَ مِن عِندِ أَنفُسِكُم ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ TRANSLITERATION ʾa-wa-lammā ʾaṣābatkum muṣībatun qad ʾaṣabtum mithlayhā qultum ʾannā hādhā qul huwa min ʿindi ʾanfusikum ʾinna llāha ʿalā kulli shayʾin qadīrun

TRANSLATION What, when an affliction visits you —while you have inflicted twice as much— do you say, ‘How is this?’! Say, ‘This is from your own souls.’ Indeed Allah has power over all things.

166 وَما أَصابَكُم يَومَ التَقَى الجَمعانِ فَبِإِذنِ اللَّهِ وَلِيَعلَمَ المُؤمِنينَ TRANSLITERATION wa-mā ʾaṣābakum yawma ltaqā l-jamʿāni fa-bi-ʾidhni llāhi wa-li-yaʿlama l-muʾminīna

TRANSLATION What befell you on the day when the two hosts met, was by Allah’s permission, so that He may ascertain the faithful,

167 وَلِيَعلَمَ الَّذينَ نافَقوا ۚ وَقيلَ لَهُم تَعالَوا قاتِلوا في سَبيلِ اللَّهِ أَوِ ادفَعوا ۖ قالوا لَو نَعلَمُ قِتالًا لَاتَّبَعناكُم ۗ هُم لِلكُفرِ يَومَئِذٍ أَقرَبُ مِنهُم لِلإيمانِ ۚ يَقولونَ بِأَفواهِهِم ما لَيسَ في قُلوبِهِم ۗ وَاللَّهُ أَعلَمُ بِما يَكتُمونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-li-yaʿlama lladhīna nāfaqū wa-qīla lahum taʿālaw qātilū fī sabīli llāhi ʾawi dfaʿū qālū law naʿlamu qitālan la-ttabaʿnākum hum li-l-kufri yawmaʾidhin ʾaqrabu minhum li-l-ʾīmāni yaqūlūna bi-ʾafwāhihim mā laysa fī qulūbihim wa-llāhu ʾaʿlamu bi-mā yaktumūna

TRANSLATION and ascertain the hypocrites. [When] they were told: ‘Come, fight in the way of Allah, or defend [yourselves], they said, ‘If we knew any fighting, surely we would have followed you.’ That day they were nearer to unfaith than to faith. They say with their mouths what is not in their hearts, and Allah knows best whatever they conceal.

168 الَّذينَ قالوا لِإِخوانِهِم وَقَعَدوا لَو أَطاعونا ما قُتِلوا ۗ قُل فَادرَءوا عَن أَنفُسِكُمُ المَوتَ إِن كُنتُم صادِقينَ TRANSLITERATION alladhīna qālū li-ʾikhwānihim wa-qaʿadū law ʾaṭāʿūnā mā qutilū qul fa-draʾū ʿan ʾanfusikumu l-mawta ʾin kuntum ṣādiqīna

TRANSLATION Those who said of their brethren, while they themselves sat back: ‘Had they obeyed us, they would not have been killed.’ Say, ‘Then keep death off from yourselves, should you be truthful.’

169 وَلا تَحسَبَنَّ الَّذينَ قُتِلوا في سَبيلِ اللَّهِ أَمواتًا ۚ بَل أَحياءٌ عِندَ رَبِّهِم يُرزَقونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā taḥsabanna lladhīna qutilū fī sabīli llāhi ʾamwātan bal ʾaḥyāʾun ʿinda rabbihim yurzaqūna

TRANSLATION Do not suppose those who were slain in the way of Allah to be dead; rather they are living and provided for near their Lord,

170 فَرِحينَ بِما آتاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضلِهِ وَيَستَبشِرونَ بِالَّذينَ لَم يَلحَقوا بِهِم مِن خَلفِهِم أَلّا خَوفٌ عَلَيهِم وَلا هُم يَحزَنونَ TRANSLITERATION fariḥīna bi-mā ʾātāhumu llāhu min faḍlihī wa-yastabshirūna bi-lladhīna lam yalḥaqū bihim min khalfihim ʾallā khawfun ʿalayhim wa-lā hum yaḥzanūna

TRANSLATION exulting in what Allah has given them out of His grace, and rejoicing for those who have not yet joined them from [those left] behind them that they will have no fear, nor will they grieve.

171 ۞ يَستَبشِرونَ بِنِعمَةٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَفَضلٍ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُضيعُ أَجرَ المُؤمِنينَ TRANSLITERATION yastabshirūna bi-niʿmatin mina llāhi wa-faḍlin wa-ʾanna llāha lā yuḍīʿu ʾajra l-muʾminīna

TRANSLATION They rejoice in Allah’s blessing and grace, and that Allah does not waste the reward of the faithful.

172 الَّذينَ استَجابوا لِلَّهِ وَالرَّسولِ مِن بَعدِ ما أَصابَهُمُ القَرحُ ۚ لِلَّذينَ أَحسَنوا مِنهُم وَاتَّقَوا أَجرٌ عَظيمٌ TRANSLITERATION alladhīna stajābū li-llāhi wa-r-rasūli min baʿdi mā ʾaṣābahumu l-qarḥu li-lladhīna ʾaḥsanū minhum wa-ttaqaw ʾajrun ʿaẓīmun-i

TRANSLATION Those who responded to Allah and the Apostle [even] after they had been wounded —for those of them who have been virtuous and Godwary there shall be a great reward.

173 الَّذينَ قالَ لَهُمُ النّاسُ إِنَّ النّاسَ قَد جَمَعوا لَكُم فَاخشَوهُم فَزادَهُم إيمانًا وَقالوا حَسبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعمَ الوَكيلُ TRANSLITERATION alladhīna qāla lahumu n-nāsu ʾinna n-nāsa qad jamaʿū lakum fa-khshawhum fa-zādahum ʾīmānan wa-qālū ḥasbunā llāhu wa-niʿma l-wakīlu

TRANSLATION Those to whom the people said, ‘All the people have gathered against you; so fear them.’ That only increased them in faith, and they said, ‘Allah is sufficient for us, and He is an excellent trustee.’

174 فَانقَلَبوا بِنِعمَةٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَفَضلٍ لَم يَمسَسهُم سوءٌ وَاتَّبَعوا رِضوانَ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ ذو فَضلٍ عَظيمٍ TRANSLITERATION fa-nqalabū bi-niʿmatin mina llāhi wa-faḍlin lam yamsashum sūʾun wa-ttabaʿū riḍwāna llāhi wa-llāhu dhū faḍlin ʿaẓīmin

TRANSLATION So they returned with Allah’s blessing and grace, untouched by any evil. They pursued the pleasure of Allah, and Allah is dispenser of a great grace.

175 إِنَّما ذٰلِكُمُ الشَّيطانُ يُخَوِّفُ أَولِياءَهُ فَلا تَخافوهُم وَخافونِ إِن كُنتُم مُؤمِنينَ TRANSLITERATION ʾinnamā dhālikumu sh-shayṭānu yukhawwifu ʾawliyāʾahū fa-lā takhāfūhum wa-khāfūni ʾin kuntum muʾminīna

TRANSLATION That is only Satan frightening his followers! So fear them not, and fear Me, should you be faithful.

176 وَلا يَحزُنكَ الَّذينَ يُسارِعونَ فِي الكُفرِ ۚ إِنَّهُم لَن يَضُرُّوا اللَّهَ شَيئًا ۗ يُريدُ اللَّهُ أَلّا يَجعَلَ لَهُم حَظًّا فِي الآخِرَةِ ۖ وَلَهُم عَذابٌ عَظيمٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā yaḥzunka lladhīna yusāriʿūna fī l-kufri ʾinnahum lan yaḍurrū llāha shayʾan yurīdu llāhu ʾallā yajʿala lahum ḥaẓẓan fī l-ʾākhirati wa-lahum ʿadhābun ʿaẓīmun

TRANSLATION Do not grieve for those who are active in unfaith; they will not hurt Allah in the least: Allah desires to give them no share in the Hereafter, and there is a great punishment for them.

177 إِنَّ الَّذينَ اشتَرَوُا الكُفرَ بِالإيمانِ لَن يَضُرُّوا اللَّهَ شَيئًا وَلَهُم عَذابٌ أَليمٌ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna lladhīna shtarawu l-kufra bi-l-ʾīmāni lan yaḍurrū llāha shayʾan wa-lahum ʿadhābun ʾalīmun

TRANSLATION Those who have bought unfaith for faith will not hurt Allah in the least, and there is a painful punishment for them.

178 وَلا يَحسَبَنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا أَنَّما نُملي لَهُم خَيرٌ لِأَنفُسِهِم ۚ إِنَّما نُملي لَهُم لِيَزدادوا إِثمًا ۚ وَلَهُم عَذابٌ مُهينٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā yaḥsabanna lladhīna kafarū ʾannamā numlī lahum khayrun li-ʾanfusihim ʾinnamā numlī lahum li-yazdādū ʾithman wa-lahum ʿadhābun muhīnun

TRANSLATION Let the faithless not suppose that the respite that We grant them is good for their souls: We give them respite only that they may increase in sin, and there is a humiliating punishment for them.

179 ما كانَ اللَّهُ لِيَذَرَ المُؤمِنينَ عَلىٰ ما أَنتُم عَلَيهِ حَتّىٰ يَميزَ الخَبيثَ مِنَ الطَّيِّبِ ۗ وَما كانَ اللَّهُ لِيُطلِعَكُم عَلَى الغَيبِ وَلٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ يَجتَبي مِن رُسُلِهِ مَن يَشاءُ ۖ فَآمِنوا بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ ۚ وَإِن تُؤمِنوا وَتَتَّقوا فَلَكُم أَجرٌ عَظيمٌ TRANSLITERATION mā kāna llāhu li-yadhara l-muʾminīna ʿalā mā ʾantum ʿalayhi ḥattā yamīza l-khabītha mina ṭ-ṭayyibi wa-mā kāna llāhu li-yuṭliʿakum ʿalā l-ghaybi wa-lākinna llāha yajtabī min rusulihī man yashāʾu fa-ʾāminū bi-llāhi wa-rusulihī wa-ʾin tuʾminū wa-tattaqū fa-lakum ʾajrun ʿaẓīmun

TRANSLATION Allah will not leave the faithful in your present state, until He has separated the bad ones from the good. Allah will not acquaint you with the Unseen, but Allah chooses from His apostles whomever He wishes. So have faith in Allah and His apostles; and if you are faithful and Godwary, there shall be a great reward for you.

180 وَلا يَحسَبَنَّ الَّذينَ يَبخَلونَ بِما آتاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضلِهِ هُوَ خَيرًا لَهُم ۖ بَل هُوَ شَرٌّ لَهُم ۖ سَيُطَوَّقونَ ما بَخِلوا بِهِ يَومَ القِيامَةِ ۗ وَلِلَّهِ ميراثُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بِما تَعمَلونَ خَبيرٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-lā yaḥsabanna lladhīna yabkhalūna bi-mā ʾātāhumu llāhu min faḍlihī huwa khayran lahum bal huwa sharrun lahum sa-yuṭawwaqūna mā bakhilū bihī yawma l-qiyāmati wa-li-llāhi mīrāthu s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍi wa-llāhu bi-mā taʿmalūna khabīrun

TRANSLATION Let the stingy not suppose that [their grudging] what Allah has given them out of His grace is good for them; rather it is bad for them. They will be collared with what they grudge on the Day of Resurrection. To Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is well aware of what you do. 181 لَقَد سَمِعَ اللَّهُ قَولَ الَّذينَ قالوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ فَقيرٌ وَنَحنُ أَغنِياءُ ۘ سَنَكتُبُ ما قالوا وَقَتلَهُمُ الأَنبِياءَ بِغَيرِ حَقٍّ وَنَقولُ ذوقوا عَذابَ الحَريقِ TRANSLITERATION la-qad samiʿa llāhu qawla lladhīna qālū ʾinna llāha faqīrun wa-naḥnu ʾaghniyāʾu sa-naktubu mā qālū wa-qatlahumu l-ʾanbiyāʾa bi-ghayri ḥaqqin wa-naqūlu dhūqū ʿadhāba l-ḥarīqi

TRANSLATION Allah has certainly heard the remark of those who said, ‘Allah is poor and we are rich.’ We will record what they have said, and their killing of the prophets unjustly,1 and We shall say, ‘Taste the punishment of the burning. Verses - are addressed to the Jews. Cf. , ; , ; ; , where the Jews are accused of killing the prophets. 182 ذٰلِكَ بِما قَدَّمَت أَيديكُم وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ لَيسَ بِظَلّامٍ لِلعَبيدِ TRANSLITERATION dhālika bi-mā qaddamat ʾaydīkum wa-ʾanna llāha laysa bi-ẓallāmin li-l-ʿabīdi

TRANSLATION That is because of what your hands have sent ahead, and because Allah is not tyrannical to the servants.’

183 الَّذينَ قالوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَهِدَ إِلَينا أَلّا نُؤمِنَ لِرَسولٍ حَتّىٰ يَأتِيَنا بِقُربانٍ تَأكُلُهُ النّارُ ۗ قُل قَد جاءَكُم رُسُلٌ مِن قَبلي بِالبَيِّناتِ وَبِالَّذي قُلتُم فَلِمَ قَتَلتُموهُم إِن كُنتُم صادِقينَ TRANSLITERATION alladhīna qālū ʾinna llāha ʿahida ʾilaynā ʾallā nuʾmina li-rasūlin ḥattā yaʾtiyanā bi-qurbānin taʾkuluhu n-nāru qul qad jāʾakum rusulun min qablī bi-l-bayyināti wa-bi-lladhī qultum fa-li-ma qataltumūhum ʾin kuntum ṣādiqīna

TRANSLATION [To] those who say, ‘Allah has pledged us not to believe in any apostle unless he brings us an offering consumed by fire,’ say, ‘Apostles before me certainly brought you manifest signs and what you speak of. Then why did you kill them, should you be truthful?’

184 فَإِن كَذَّبوكَ فَقَد كُذِّبَ رُسُلٌ مِن قَبلِكَ جاءوا بِالبَيِّناتِ وَالزُّبُرِ وَالكِتابِ المُنيرِ TRANSLITERATION fa-ʾin kadhdhabūka fa-qad kudhdhiba rusulun min qablika jāʾū bi-l-bayyināti wa-z-zuburi wa-l-kitābi l-munīri

TRANSLATION But if they deny you, then before you [other] apostles have been denied, who came with manifest signs, holy writs, and an illuminating scripture.

185 كُلُّ نَفسٍ ذائِقَةُ المَوتِ ۗ وَإِنَّما تُوَفَّونَ أُجورَكُم يَومَ القِيامَةِ ۖ فَمَن زُحزِحَ عَنِ النّارِ وَأُدخِلَ الجَنَّةَ فَقَد فازَ ۗ وَمَا الحَياةُ الدُّنيا إِلّا مَتاعُ الغُرورِ TRANSLITERATION kullu nafsin dhāʾiqatu l-mawti wa-ʾinnamā tuwaffawna ʾujūrakum yawma l-qiyāmati fa-man zuḥziḥa ʿani n-nāri wa-ʾudkhila l-jannata fa-qad fāza wa-mā l-ḥayātu d-dunyā ʾillā matāʿu l-ghurūri

TRANSLATION Every soul shall taste death, and you will indeed be paid your full rewards on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever is delivered from the Fire and admitted to paradise has certainly succeeded. The life of this world is nothing but the wares of delusion.

186 ۞ لَتُبلَوُنَّ في أَموالِكُم وَأَنفُسِكُم وَلَتَسمَعُنَّ مِنَ الَّذينَ أوتُوا الكِتابَ مِن قَبلِكُم وَمِنَ الَّذينَ أَشرَكوا أَذًى كَثيرًا ۚ وَإِن تَصبِروا وَتَتَّقوا فَإِنَّ ذٰلِكَ مِن عَزمِ الأُمورِ TRANSLITERATION la-tublawunna fī ʾamwālikum wa-ʾanfusikum wa-la-tasmaʿunna mina lladhīna ʾūtū l-kitāba min qablikum wa-mina lladhīna ʾashrakū ʾadhan kathīran wa-ʾin taṣbirū wa-tattaqū fa-ʾinna dhālika min ʿazmi l-ʾumūri

TRANSLATION You will surely be tested in your possessions and your souls, and you will surely hear from those who were given the Book before you and from the polytheists much affront; but if you are patient and Godwary, that is indeed the steadiest of courses.

187 وَإِذ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ ميثاقَ الَّذينَ أوتُوا الكِتابَ لَتُبَيِّنُنَّهُ لِلنّاسِ وَلا تَكتُمونَهُ فَنَبَذوهُ وَراءَ ظُهورِهِم وَاشتَرَوا بِهِ ثَمَنًا قَليلًا ۖ فَبِئسَ ما يَشتَرونَ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾidh ʾakhadha llāhu mīthāqa lladhīna ʾūtū l-kitāba la-tubayyinunnahū li-n-nāsi wa-lā taktumūnahū fa-nabadhūhu warāʾa ẓuhūrihim wa-shtaraw bihī thamanan qalīlan fa-biʾsa mā yashtarūna

TRANSLATION When Allah made a covenant with those who were given the Book: ‘You shall explain it for the people, and you shall not conceal it,’ they cast it behind their backs and sold it for a paltry gain. How evil is what they buy!

188 لا تَحسَبَنَّ الَّذينَ يَفرَحونَ بِما أَتَوا وَيُحِبّونَ أَن يُحمَدوا بِما لَم يَفعَلوا فَلا تَحسَبَنَّهُم بِمَفازَةٍ مِنَ العَذابِ ۖ وَلَهُم عَذابٌ أَليمٌ TRANSLITERATION lā taḥsabanna lladhīna yafraḥūna bi-mā ʾataw wa-yuḥibbūna ʾan yuḥmadū bi-mā lam yafʿalū fa-lā taḥsabannahum bi-mafāzatin mina l-ʿadhābi wa-lahum ʿadhābun ʾalīmun

TRANSLATION Do not suppose those who exult in what they have done, and love to be praised for what they have not done —do not suppose them saved from punishment, and there is a painful punishment for them.

189 وَلِلَّهِ مُلكُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ TRANSLITERATION wa-li-llāhi mulku s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍi wa-llāhu ʿalā kulli shayʾin qadīrun

TRANSLATION To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and Allah has power over all things.

190 إِنَّ في خَلقِ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ وَاختِلافِ اللَّيلِ وَالنَّهارِ لَآياتٍ لِأُولِي الأَلبابِ TRANSLITERATION ʾinna fī khalqi s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍi wa-khtilāfi l-layli wa-n-nahāri la-ʾāyātin li-ʾulī l-ʾalbābi

TRANSLATION Indeed in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of night and day, there are signs for those who possess intellects.

191 الَّذينَ يَذكُرونَ اللَّهَ قِيامًا وَقُعودًا وَعَلىٰ جُنوبِهِم وَيَتَفَكَّرونَ في خَلقِ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ رَبَّنا ما خَلَقتَ هٰذا باطِلًا سُبحانَكَ فَقِنا عَذابَ النّارِ TRANSLITERATION alladhīna yadhkurūna llāha qiyāman wa-quʿūdan wa-ʿalā junūbihim wa-yatafakkarūna fī khalqi s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍi rabbanā mā khalaqta hādhā bāṭilan subḥānaka fa-qinā ʿadhāba n-nāri

TRANSLATION Those who remember Allah standing, sitting, and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth [and say], ‘Our Lord, You have not created this in vain! Immaculate are You! Save us from the punishment of the Fire.

192 رَبَّنا إِنَّكَ مَن تُدخِلِ النّارَ فَقَد أَخزَيتَهُ ۖ وَما لِلظّالِمينَ مِن أَنصارٍ TRANSLITERATION rabbanā ʾinnaka man tudkhili n-nāra fa-qad ʾakhzaytahū wa-mā li-ẓ-ẓālimīna min ʾanṣārin

TRANSLATION Our Lord, whoever that You make enter the Fire will surely have been disgraced by You, and the wrongdoers will have no helpers.

193 رَبَّنا إِنَّنا سَمِعنا مُنادِيًا يُنادي لِلإيمانِ أَن آمِنوا بِرَبِّكُم فَآمَنّا ۚ رَبَّنا فَاغفِر لَنا ذُنوبَنا وَكَفِّر عَنّا سَيِّئَاتِنا وَتَوَفَّنا مَعَ الأَبرارِ TRANSLITERATION rabbanā ʾinnanā samiʿnā munādiyan yunādī li-l-ʾīmāni ʾan ʾāminū bi-rabbikum fa-ʾāmannā rabbanā fa-ghfir lanā dhunūbanā wa-kaffir ʿannā sayyiʾātinā wa-tawaffanā maʿa l-ʾabrāri

TRANSLATION Our Lord, we have indeed heard a summoner calling to faith, declaring, “Have faith in your Lord!” So we believed. Our Lord, forgive us our sins and absolve us of our misdeeds, and make us die with the pious.

194 رَبَّنا وَآتِنا ما وَعَدتَنا عَلىٰ رُسُلِكَ وَلا تُخزِنا يَومَ القِيامَةِ ۗ إِنَّكَ لا تُخلِفُ الميعادَ TRANSLITERATION rabbanā wa-ʾātinā mā waʿadtanā ʿalā rusulika wa-lā tukhzinā yawma l-qiyāmati ʾinnaka lā tukhlifu l-mīʿāda

TRANSLATION Our Lord, give us what You have promised us through Your apostles, and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed You do not break Your promise.’

195 فَاستَجابَ لَهُم رَبُّهُم أَنّي لا أُضيعُ عَمَلَ عامِلٍ مِنكُم مِن ذَكَرٍ أَو أُنثىٰ ۖ بَعضُكُم مِن بَعضٍ ۖ فَالَّذينَ هاجَروا وَأُخرِجوا مِن دِيارِهِم وَأوذوا في سَبيلي وَقاتَلوا وَقُتِلوا لَأُكَفِّرَنَّ عَنهُم سَيِّئَاتِهِم وَلَأُدخِلَنَّهُم جَنّاتٍ تَجري مِن تَحتِهَا الأَنهارُ ثَوابًا مِن عِندِ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عِندَهُ حُسنُ الثَّوابِ TRANSLITERATION fa-stajāba lahum rabbuhum ʾannī lā ʾuḍīʿu ʿamala ʾāmilin minkum min dhakarin ʾaw ʾunthā baʿḍukum min baʿḍin fa-lladhīna hājarū wa-ʾukhrijū min diyārihim wa-ʾūdhū fī sabīlī wa-qātalū wa-qutilū la-ʾukaffiranna ʿanhum sayyiʾātihim wa-la-ʾudkhilannahum jannātin tajrī min taḥtihā l-ʾanhāru thawāban min ʿindi llāhi wa-llāhu ʿindahū ḥusnu th-thawābi

TRANSLATION Then their Lord answered them, ‘I do not waste the work of any worker among you, whether male or female; you are all on the same footing. So those who migrated and were expelled from their homes, and were tormented in My way, and those who fought and were killed —I will surely absolve them of their misdeeds and I will admit them into gardens with streams running in them, as a reward from Allah, and Allah—with Him is the best of rewards.’ 196 لا يَغُرَّنَّكَ تَقَلُّبُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا فِي البِلادِ TRANSLITERATION lā yaghurrannaka taqallubu lladhīna kafarū fī l-bilādi

TRANSLATION It is a trivial enjoyment; then their refuge is hell, and it is an evil resting place.

TRANSLATION But those who are wary of their Lord —for them shall be gardens with streams running in them, to remain in them [forever], a hospitality from Allah; and what is with Allah is better for the pious.

199 وَإِنَّ مِن أَهلِ الكِتابِ لَمَن يُؤمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَما أُنزِلَ إِلَيكُم وَما أُنزِلَ إِلَيهِم خاشِعينَ لِلَّهِ لا يَشتَرونَ بِآياتِ اللَّهِ ثَمَنًا قَليلًا ۗ أُولٰئِكَ لَهُم أَجرُهُم عِندَ رَبِّهِم ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَريعُ الحِسابِ TRANSLITERATION wa-ʾinna min ʾahli l-kitābi la-man yuʾminu bi-llāhi wa-mā ʾunzila ʾilaykum wa-mā ʾunzila ʾilayhim khāshiʿīna li-llāhi lā yashtarūna bi-ʾāyāti llāhi thamanan qalīlan ʾulāʾika lahum ʾajruhum ʿinda rabbihim ʾinna llāha sarīʿu l-ḥisābi

TRANSLATION Indeed among the People of the Book there are surely some who have faith in Allah, and in what has been sent down to you, and in what has been sent down to them. Humble toward Allah, they do not sell the signs of Allah for a paltry gain. They shall have their reward near their Lord; indeed Allah is swift at reckoning. 200 يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنُوا اصبِروا وَصابِروا وَرابِطوا وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُم تُفلِحونَ TRANSLITERATION yā-ʾayyuhā lladhīna ʾāmanū ṣbirū wa-ṣābirū wa-rābiṭū wa-ttaqū llāha laʿallakum tufliḥūna

TRANSLATION O you who have faith! Be patient, stand firm, and close [your] ranks, and be wary of Allah so that you may be felicitous.

S u r a III - Imranova obitelj -hrvatski[uredi]

U ime Boga: onog koji čini milosrđe, Milosrdnoga.


1 Alif, Lam, Mim. 2 Allah!... Nema drugoga osim njega: Živoga, onog koji postoji sam po sebi!

3 On je spustio na tebe Knjigu s Istinom; ona priznaje istinitim ono što je bilo prije nje.

On je spustio Petoknjižje i Evanđelje 4 – smjer, odprije, za ljude – i spustio je ostale koje razlikuju istinu od neistine.

Jedna je strašna kazna namijenjena onima koji ne vjeruju u Znakove Božje. – Bog je moćan, on je Gospodar osvete –

5 Ništa u nebesima i na zemlji nije skriveno Bogu. 6 On je taj koji vas oblikuje u krilu vaših majki, onako kako on to hoće.

Nema Boga osim njega, Moćnog, Mudrog!

7 On je taj koji je spustio knjigu na tebe. U njoj se nalaze jasni redci – Majka Knjige – i druga prispodobljavanja.

Oni čija srca se priklanjaju grješci privrgavaju se onome što je rečeno u prispodobama jer oni traže nesklad i oni su gladni za tumačenjima; ali nitko drugi do Bog ne poznaje tumačenje Knjige.

Oni koji su ukorijenjeni u Znanosti kažu: « Mi vjerujemo u to! Sve dolazi od našeg Gospoda! » ali samo ljudi nadareni razumom toga su svjesni.

8 Gospode naš! Ne okrći naša srca nakon što si nas usmjerio; dodijeli nam milost svoju. Ti si trajni Darovatelj.

9 Gospode naš! Ti si, uistinu, onaj koji će objediniti ljude jednog dana: nikakva sumnja nije moguća glede toga jer Bog ne propušta svoje obećanje.

10 Dobra i djeca nevjernika ne će im služiti ničemu kod Boga: evo oni koji će biti hrana Vatri.

11 Takva je bila sudbina Faraonovih ljudi i onih koji su živjeli prije njih. Oni su držali naše Znakove za laži; Bog ih je kaznio za njihove grijehe. – Bog je strašan u svojoj kazni –

12 Reci nevjernicima: « Vi će te biti pobijeđeni; vi će te se sakupiti u Paklu. » – Kojeg li mrskog mjesta za odmor! –

13 Jedan vam je znak bio dan kad su se dvije grupe susrele: jedni su se borili na Božjem putu a drugi su bili nevjerni; oni su, svojim vlastitim očima, vidjeli vjerujuće u broju dva puta većem od njihovog vlastitog. – Bog pomaže, svojom pomoću, koga on hoće –

Evo uistinu jedne pouke za one koji su nadareni vidovitošću.

14 Ljubav za žuđenim dobrima je poznata ljudima pod lijepim i varljivimn pojavnostima; takve su žene, djeca, teške gomile zlata i srebra, rasni konji, stoka, obrađene zemlje: to tamo je jedno kratkotrajno uživanje u životu ovog svijeta, ali bolje mjesto povratka bit će uz Boga.

15 Reci: « Hoću li vam najaviti jednu stvar bolju od tog svega? »

Oni koji se boje svog Gospoda naći će zauvijek kod njega, vrtove gdje teku potoci, čiste supruge i zadovoljstvo Božje. – Bog savršeno vidi svoje sluge –

16 Za one koji kažu: « Da mi smo vjerovali! Oprosti nam naše grijehe, zaštiti nas od kazne Vatre. »

17 Za one koji su strpljivi, iskreni i pobožni; za one koji daju milostinju i koji mole, od zore, oprost Božji.

18 Bog svjedoči i s njim anđeli i oni koji su nadareni razumom: « Nema Boga osim njega; njega koji sadržava pravdu... Nema Boga osim njega, Moćnog, Mudrog! »

19 Vjeroispovijed, u Božjim očima, je uistinu Pokornost.

Oni kojima je Knjiga bila dana nisu se suprotstavili jedni drugima, i iz ljubomore, dok nisu predhodno primili Znanje.

Glede onoga koji ne vjeruje Znakovima Božjim, nek znade da je Bog brz u svojim računima.

20 Reci onima koji dokazuju protiv tebe: « Ja sam se podvrgnuo Bogu, ja i oni koji su me slijedili. »

Reci onima kojima je bila dana Knjiga i nevjernicima: « Jeste li pokorni Bogu? »

Ako su oni pokorni Bogu, oni su dobro usmjereni; ako se odvrate...

Ti si samo zadužen prenijeti proročansku poruku – Bog savršeno vidi svoje sluge –

21 Najavi jednu bolnu kaznu onima koji ne vjeruju u Znakove Božje; onima koji nepravedno ubijaju proroke; onima koji, među ljudima, ubijaju one koji zapovijedaju pravdu.

22 Evo onih čija su djela prazna u ovom svijetu i u budućem životu. – Oni ne će naći branitelja –

23 Nisi li ti vidio one koji su primili jedan dio Knjige pozivati Knjizi Božjoj, kao k sudcu? Neki među njima su se potom okrenuli i odstranili se.

24 To je zato da bi rekli: « Vatra će nas dohvatiti samo jedno ograničeno vrijeme. » kako su se pustili zavesti u svojoj vjeroispovijedi svim onim što su izmislili.

25 Šta će se dogoditi kad ih okupimo jednog dana: – nikakva sumnja nije moguća glede ovog predmata – svaki čovjek primit će tada naknadu za ono što bude izvršio a nitko ne će biti oštećen.

26 Reci: « O Bože! Suverenu Kraljevstva: Ti daješ kraljevstvo kome ti hoćeš i ti oduzimaš kraljevstvo kome ti hoćeš. Ti uzdižeš koga ti hoćeš i ti spuštaš koga ti hoćeš. Sreća je u tvojoj ruci, ti si, uistinu, nadmoćan nad svakom stvari. »

27 Ti daješ noći prodrijeti u dan i daješ danu prodirati u noć. Ti izvodiš živog iz mrtvoga i ti izvodiš mrtvoga iz živoga. Ti daješ potrebno kome ti hoćeš, bez računa. »

28 Nek vjerujući ne predpostavljaju prijateljevanje s nevjernicima onom s vjerujućima. Onaj koji bude tako radio, nema što očekivati od Boga. – osim ako ti ljudi ne čine opasnost za vas –

Bog vas upozorava na sebe samog; povratak će biti prema Bogu.

29 Reci: « Ako vi skrivate ono što je u vašim srcima, ili pak, ako vi to pokazujete, Bog to poznaje. »

30 Na Dan kad će svaki čovjek naći predstavljeno pred sobom ono što bude dobro učinio i ono što bude zlo učinio, poželjet će da jedno dugo razdoblje njega odijeli od tog Dana.

Bog vas upozorava na sebe samog; povratak će biti prema Bogu.

31 Reci: «Slijedite mene, ako volite Boga; Bog će vas voljeti i oprostiti vam vaše grijehove. Bog je onaj koji oprašta, on je milosrdan. »

32 Reci. « Pokorite se Bogu i Proroku. Ali ako se okrenete, znajte da Bog ne voli nevjernike. »

33 Da, Bog je izabrao, osobito rado u svijetu: Adama, Noea, obitelj Abrahamovu, obitelj Imranovu, 34 kao potomke jednih od drugih. – Bog je onaj koji čuje i koji zna –

35 Imranova žena reče: « Gospode moj! Ja tebi posvećujem ono što je u mojem krilu; prihvati ga s moje strane. Ti si, uistinu, onaj koji čuje i koji zna.»

36 Nakon što je porodila svoju kćerku, ona reče: « Gospode moj! Ja sam donijela na svijet jednu kćerku.» – Bog je znao što je ona bila porodila: jedan dječak ne sliči djevojčici – « Ja ju nazivam Marijom, stavljam ju pod tvoju zaštitu, nju i jeno potomstvo, protiv Sotone, prokletog. »

37 Njen Gospod prihvati djevojčicu priređujući joj jedan lijep prijam; on njoj dade rasti u lijepom odgoju i povjeri ju Zahariju.

Svaki put kad bi Zaharije nju išao vidjeti, u Templu, on bi pokraj nje našao potrebnu hranu, i on ju upita: « O Marijo! Otkud ovo dolazi?»

Ona odgovaraše: « To dolazi od Boga: Bog daje, ne računajući, svoju ishranu kome on to hoće. »

38 Tad Zaharije zazva svog Gospoda: on reče: « Moj Gospode! Dodijeli meni, s tvoje strane, jedno izvrsno potomstvo. Ti si, uistinu, onaj koji uslišava molitvu.»

39 Dok je on uspravljen molio u Templu, anđeli mu povikaše: « Bog ti najavljuje dobru vijest o rođenju Ivanovom: on će proglasiti istinitom Riječ koja izvire iz Boga; jedan poglavar, jedan čisti, jedan Prorok među pravednicima. »

40 Zaharije reče: « Gospode moj! Kako ću ja imati dječaka? Starost me dosegla, a moja je žena nerotkinja.»

On reče: « Bit će tako, Bog čini što on hoće.»

41 Zaharije reče: « Gospode moj! Daj mi jedan Znak.»

On reče: « Tvoj Znak Bit će da ćeš ti govoriti s ljudima pomoću gesta, tijekom tri dana. Zazivaj često svog Gospoda; slavi ga u sumrak i u svitanje. »

42 Anđeli rekoše: « O Marijo! Bog te izabrao, uistinu, on te očistio; on te izabrao predpostavljajući te svim ženama svemira.

43 O Marijo! Budi pobožna prema Gospodu svom; prostri se i pokloni se s onima koji se klanjaju. »

44 Ovo čini dio priča koje se tiču tajne koju ti mi odkrivamo.

Ti nisi bio među njima kad su oni bacali svoje trstike da bi doznali tko će između njih brinuti se o Mariji.

Ti nisi također bio među njima kad su se oni prepirali.

45 Anđeli rekoše: « O Marijo! Bog ti najavljuje dobru vijest o jednoj Riječi koja izvire iz njega: Njegovo je ime Mesija, Isus, sin Marijin; slavan u ovom svijetu i u budućem životu; on je u broju onih koji su blizu Bogu. 46 Od kolijevke, on će ljudima govoriti poput starca; on će biti u broju pravednika. »

47 Ona reče: « Gospode moj! Kako ću ja imati sina? Ni jedan me čovjek nikad nije dotakao. »

On reče: « Bog stvara onako kako on hoće: kad je on propisao jednu stvar, on kaže njoj: « Budi!...» i ona jest. »

48 Bog će ga poučiti Knjizi, Mudrosti, Petoknjižju i Evanđelju; 49 i evo ga proroka, poslanog sinovima Izraelovim: « Ja sam došao k vama s jednim Znakom vašeg Gospoda: ja ću za vas stvoriti od gline nešto poput oblika ptice. Ja puhnem u to, i ono jest: « ptica », – s dopuštenjem Božjim –

Ja liječim slijepog i leproznog; ja uskrsavam mrtve – s Božjim dopuštenjem –

Ja vam govorim što jedete i što krijete u svojim boravištima.

Ima tu uistinu jedan Znak za vas, ako ste vjerujući.

50 Evo me, potvrđujućeg onome što je postojalo prije mene u Petoknjižju i objavljujućeg dopuštenim za vas, jedan dio onoga što vam je bilo zabranjeno. Ja sam došao k vama s jednim Znakom vašeg Gospoda; – Bojte se njega i podvrgnite se meni – 51 Bog je, uistinu, moj Gospod i vaš Gospod: Služite ga: to je pravi put. »

52 Isus reče: nakon što je ustanovio jihovu nevjernost: « Koji su među vama koji pomoćnici na putu Božjem? »

Apostoli rekoše: « Mi smo pomoćnici Božji; mi vjerujemo u Boga; budi svjedokom naše podvrgnutosti.

53 Gospode naš! Mi smo vjerovali u ono što si nam to odkrio; mi smo slijedili Proroka; upiši nas među svjedoke. »

54 Sinovi Izraelovi snovaše lukavstva protiv Isusa. Bog bi lukav također; Bog je najbolji od onih koji spremaju lukavstva.

55 Bog reče: « O Isuse! Ja ću, uistinu, pozvati k sebi; uzdignuti prema sebi; osloboditi od nevjernika. Ja ću postaviti one koji su tebe slijedili iznad nevjernika, sve do Dana Uskrsnuća; vaš će se povratak tada obaviti k meni; ja ću suditi između vas i odlučiti o vašim razlikama.

56 Glede onih koji ne vjeruju, ja ću njih kazniti jednom strašnom kaznom u ovom svijetu i u budućem životu. – Oni ne će naći pomoćnika » –

57 Glede onih koji budu vjerovali i koji budu činili dobro, Bog će njima dati njihovu naknadu. – Bog ne voli nepravedne –

58 Evo jednog dijela Znakova i mudrog Podsješanja kojeg ti mi priopćavamo.

59 Da, s Isusom je kod Boga kao s Adamom: Bog je stvorio zemlju, potom je rekao njemu: « Budi, » i on jest.

60 Istina izvire iz tvog Gospoda. Ne budi u broju onih koji sumnjaju.

61 Ako ti netko proturječi nakon onoga što si ti primio kao znanost, reci: « Dođite! Pozovimo naše sinove i vaše sinove, naše žene i vaše žene, nas i vas, izrecimo jedno uzajamnu kletvu pozivajući prokletstvo Božje na lažljivce. »

62 Evo priče, Istine: Nema Boga osim Boga. Bog je Moćni, Mudri.

63 Ako se okrenu nek znaju da Bog poznaje kvaritelje.

64 Reci: « O ljudi Knjige! Priđite riječi zajedničkoj nama i vama: mi obožavamo samo Boga; mi njemu ne pridružujemo ništa; nitko između nas sebe ne daje Gospodaru, izvan Boga. »

Ako se okrenu, reci im: « Potvrdite da smo mi uistinu podvrgnuti. »

65 O ljudi Knjige! Zašto se vi prepirete glede Abrahama, kad su Petoknjižje i Evanđelje bili odkriveni tek poslije njega? Zar ne razumijete?

66 Evo kako se vi ponašate: vi koji se prepirete glede onoga o čemu ste imali znanje, zašto se prepirete glede onoga o čemu nemate nikakvog znanja? – Bog zna, a vi, vi ne znate –

67 Abraham nije bio ni židov ni krščanin već je bio pravi vjernik podvrgnut Bogu; on nije bio u broju mnogobožaca.

68 Ljudi najbliži Abrahamu su uistinu oni koji su ga slijedili, kao i ovaj Prorok i oni koji su vjerovali. – Bog je Gospodar vjerujućima –

69 Jedan dio ljudi Knjige htio bi vas zavesti: ali oni zavode samo sami sebe a da toga nisu ni svjesni.

70 O ljudi Knjige! Zašto ste vi nevjerni prema Znakovima Božjim, kad ste im vi svjedoci?

71 O ljudi Knjige! Zašto vi prikrivate Istinu ispod laži? Zašto skrivate Istinu, kad ju poznajete?

72 Jedan dio ljudi Knjige kaže: « U početku dana, vjerujte u ono što je bilo odkriveno vjerujućima; a na njegovom izmaku, budite nevjernici. » – Možda će se oni povratiti – 73 Vjerujte samo onima koji slijede vađu Vjeroispovijed.

Reci: « Da, pravi put je put Božji. On može dati bilo kome ono što je vama dao. »

Ili pak, oni će dokazivati protiv vas glede vašeg Gospoda. Reci: « Milost je u rukama Božjim: on nju daje kome on to hoće. » – Bog je nazočan posvuda i on zna –

74 On posebice dodjeljuje svoje milosrđe kome on hoće : Bog je Gospodar neizmjerne milosti.

75 Sigurno, ima među ljudima Knjige, koji će će ti vratiti kintar koji si im povjerio. Drugi ti ne će vratiti ni dinar koji si im povjerio, osim ako ih ne prinudiš.

To je tako, jer oni govore: « Nevjernici nemaju nikakvog sredstva da nas prinude. »

Oni propovijedaju laži protiv Boga, dok ustvari oni znaju.

76 Glede onoga koji ispunjava svoju obvezu i koji se boji Boga, nek zna da Bog voli one koji se njega boje.

77 Oni koji po niskoj cijeni prodaju svoj savez s Bogom i svoje prisege, evo onih koji ne će imati udjela u budućem životu. Bog njima ne će govoriti; on njih ne će pogledati, na Dan Uskrsnuća; on njih ne će očistiti a jedna ih bolna kazna čeka.

78 Stanoviti među njima krivotvore Knjigu pozivajući se na nju da bi načinili dojam kako njihove izmišljotine pripadaju Knjizi, ali one su tuđice u Knjizi.

Oni kažu kako sve to dolazi od Boga ali to ne dolazi od Boga. Oni propovijedaju laži protiv Boga, dok oni znaju.

79 Ne pripada jednom smrtniku kojem je Bog dao Knjigu Mudrost i proročanstvo, da potom kaže ljudima: « Budite moje sluge, a ne Božje »; već će on reći: « Budite gospodari budući da poučavate kKnjigu i jer ste ju proučavali. »

80 Bog vam ne zapovijeda da uzmete za gospodare anđele ili proroke. Da li vam je zapovjedio nevjernost, dok ste vi njemu bili podvrgnuti?

81 Bog kaže, primajući savez proročki: « Ja sam vam uistinu dao nešto od Knjige i od Mudrosti. Potom je jedan Prorok došao k vama, potvrđujući ono što ste već imali. Vjerujte u njega i pomažite mu. Jeste li vi odlučni i prihvaćate li moj savez pod tim uvjetom? »

Oni odgovoriše: « Prihvaćamo! »

On reče: « Budite dakle svjedoci, a ja, ja sam s vama, među svjedocima. »

82 Glede onih koji se potom okrenu, evo izopačenih.

83 Žele li oni neku drugu vjeroispovijed a ne onu Božju, dok sve što je u nebesima i na zemlji se pokorava njemu, milom ili silom i kad će oni biti dovedeni k njemu?

84 Reci: « Mi vjerujemo u Boga; onome što nam je odkriveno; onome što je bilo odkriveno Abrahamu, Ismaelu, Izaku, Jakovu i plemenima; onome što je bilo dano Mojsiju, Isusu, prorocima

 	od strane njihovog Gospodina.

Mi n ističemo posebno ni jednog među njima: mi smo podvrgnuti Bogu. »

85 Bogoslužje onoga koji traži jednu vjeroispovijed pokraj Podvrgavanja nije prihvaćeno. Taj će čovjek biti, u budućem životu, u broju onih koji su sve izgubili.

86 Kako će Bog usmjeravati one koji su postali nevjernici nakon što su bili vjerujući; nakon što su bili svjedocima istinitosti Prorokove i neoborivih dokaza koji su im došli? – Bog ne usmjerava nepravednog naroda –

87 Kakva će biti njihova nagrada? Prekletstvo Božje, anđeosko i svih ljudi zajedno past će sigurno na njih. 88 Oni će tu boraviti kao bezsmrtnici; kazna neće biti olakšana u njihovu korist; na njih se ne će gledati; 89 s izuzetkom onih koji, potom, budu se pokajali i koji se budu popravili. – Bog je onaj koji oprašta, on je milosrdan –

90 Glede onih koji budu nevjernici nakon što su bili vjerujući i koji, zatim, ustraju u svojoj nevjernosti: njihovo pokajanje ne će biti prihvaćeno: evo onih koji su zabludjeli.

91 Da, ako bi nevjernici, koji su umrli u nevjerstvu, dali sve zlato zemaljsko da bi se iskupili, to ne bi bilo prihvaćeno niti jednom od njih. Jedna je bolna kazna njima pričuvana i oni ne će naći pomoćnika.

92 Vi ne će te dosegnuti istinsku pobožnost, sve dok ne budete dali u milostinju ono što volite. Što god dajete u milostinju, Bog to zna.

93 Svaka je hrana bila dopuštena sinovima Izraelovim, osim onoga što je Izrael bio zabranio sam sebi, prije no što je Petoknjižje bilo odkriveno.

Reci: « Donesite dakle Petoknjižje; čitajte ga, ako ste vjerodostojni. »

94 Glede onih koji potom smišljaju laž protiv Boga: evo onih koji su nepravedni.

95 Reci: Bog je istinit slijedite vjeroispovijed Abrahamovu koji je istinski vjernik; koji nije bio u broju mnogobožaca. »

96 Prvi Templ koji je bio osnovan za ljude jest, uistinu, onaj u Meki: on je blagoslovljen i služi za Usmjerenje svijetu.

97 Očevidni Znakovi se nalaze u mjestu gdje se zadržavao Abraham. Tko unutra uđe u sigurnosti je.

Pripada ljudima, – onome tko posjeduje sredstva – ići, za Boga, na hodočašće u Kuću.

Glede nevjernih, nek znaju da Bog dostaje sam sebi, i da nema potrebe za svemirom.

98 Reci: « O ljudi Knjige! Zašto vi ne vjerujete Znakovima Božjim? – Bog je svjedok vašim djelima –

99 Reci: « O ljudi Knjige! Zašto vi odvraćate vjerujuće s puta Božjeg i želite ga učiniti zamršenim, onda kad ste vi svjedocima? » – Bog nije nepažljiv spram onoga što vi činite –

100 O vi koji vjerujete! Ako se pokorite stanovitima od onih koji su primili Knjigu, oni će vas učiniti nevjernicima, nakon što ste imali vjeru.

101 Kako to da ste vi još nevjernici, kad su vam Redci Božji bili govoreni, kad je njegov Prorok među vama?

102 O vi koji vjerujete! Bojte se Boga strahom koji on zaslužuje. Ne umrite a da njemu niste pdvrgnuti.

103 Privrgnite se svi, snažno, nagodbi s Bogom, ne dijelite se; sjetite se dobročinstava Božjih. Bog je ustanovio slogu u vašim srcima, vi ste, njegovom milošću, postali braća onda kad ste bili neprijatelji jedni drugima. Vi ste bili na rubu jednog vatrenog ponora a on vas je spasio.

Evo kako Bog vama objašnjava svoje Znakove, možda će te vi biti dobro usmjereni.

104 Vi biste mogli osnovati jednu Zajednicu čiji članovi pozivaju ljude k dobru: zapovijedati im što je pristojno a zabranjivati ono što je sramno: evo onih koji će biti sretni!

105 Ne budite kao oni koji su podijeljeni i koji se suprotstavljaju jedni drugima nakon što su im odlučni dokazi došli.

Evo onih kojima je namijenjena jedna strašna kazna 106 na Dan kad će se stanovita lica razvedriti dok će druga lica potamniti. Reći će se onima čija su lica potamnila: « Jeste li vi bili nevjernici nakon što ste imali vjeru? Kušajte dakle kaznu, po cijeni svoje nevjernosti. »

107 Oni čija su lica vedra uživat će milosrđe Božje u kojem će oni boraviti kao bezsmrtnici.

108 Takvi su Redci Božji. Mi ih tebi govorimo u punoj istini. – Bog ne će zla svijetu –

109 Ono što je u nebesima i što je na zemlji pripada Bogu. Svaka stvar se vraća k Bogu!

110 Vi činite najbolju Zajednicu stvorenu od ljudi: vi zapovijedate ono što je pristojno, vi zabranjujete ono što je sramno, vi vjerujete u Boga.

Da ljudi Knjige vjeruju, to bi bilo bolje po njih. Među njimna se nalaze vjerujući, ali većina između njih je izopačena.

111 Oni će vama samo malo naškoditi. Ako zaratuju s vama, brzo će okrenuti leđa i, potom, neće im biti pomoći.

112 Poniženje je njih udaril, ondje gdje su se nalazili, s izuzetkom onih koji su bili zaštićeni Savezom s Bogom i savezom s ljudima.

Oni su se izložili ljutnji Božjoj; udarilo ih je siromaštvo.

To bi tako: jer oni nisu vjerovali u Znakove Božje i jer su nepravedno ubijali proroke.

To bi tako: jer su se pobunili i jer su bili prijestupnici.

113 Svi nisu slični postoji, među ljudima Knjige, jedna prava zajednica čiji članovi, govore, tijekom noći, Redke Božje.

Oni se prostiru; 114 oni vjeruju u Boga i u posljednji Dan; oni zapovijedaju ono što je pristojno, oni zabranjuju ono što je sramno; oni hite činiti dobro: evo onih koji su u broju pravednih

115 Koje god dobro oni naprave, njima ne će biti osporeno, jer Bog poznaje one koji se njega Boje.

116 Dobra i djeca koja pripadaju nevjernicima ne će im u ničemu poslužiti protiv Boga. Evo onih koji će biti gosti Vatre gdje će boraviti kao bezsmrtnici.

117 Ono što ljudi potroše za ovosvjetski život slično je vjetru punom tuče: on je udario i uništio žetvu onima koji su činili krivo sami sebi: Bog njih nije oštetio, već su oni sami sebi učinili krivo. 118 O vi koji vjerujete! Prijateljske sveze uspostavljajte samo među sobom, drugi ne će propustiti da vam naškode; oni hoće vaš gubitak; mržnja se pokazuje u njihovim ustima ali ono što je skriveno i njihovim srcima još je gore. Mi smo vama objasnili Znakove; kad biste vi samo razumjeli!

119 Evo kako se vi ponašate: vi njih volite, a oni vas ne vole a vi vjerujete u Knjgu u cjelini.

Oni kažu, kad ih vi susretnete: « Mi vjerujemo! »; a kad se nađu između sebe, oni grizu prste od bijesa protiv vas.

Reci: « Umrite od svojeg bijesa! » – Bog poznaje sadržaj vaših srca –

120 Ako vas kakvo dobro dopadne, oni se rastuže; ako vas dosegne nesreća, oni se raduju.

Ako ste vi strpljivi i ako se bojite Boga, njihova lukavština vam ne će naškoditi u bilo čemu. – Znanost Božja prekriva sva njihova djela –

121 Bilo je to tako kad si ti izjutra napustio svoju obitelj da bi vjerujuće postavio na bojna mjesta – Bog čuje i on zna – 122 i dok su dvije vaše postrojbe smišljale povlačenje dok je Bog njima objema zaštitnik... – Vjerujući se moraju pouzdavati u Boga –

123 Bog vam je međutim pomogao u Badru, onda kad vi bijaste poniženi. Bojte se Boga! Možda će te vi biti zahvalni!

124 Kad si ti govorio vjerujućima: « Ne dostaje li vama da vam vaš Gospod pomaže s tri tisuće anđela koji su sišli k vama? »

125 Da, ako ste vi strpljivi, ako se bojite Boga, i da vaši neprijatelji nadiru prema vama, vaš će vam Gospod poslati kao pojačanje pet tisuća svojih anđela koji će se baciti na njih. 126 Bog to čini samo da bi vam najavio dobru vijest da bi vaša srca bila smirena. Pobjeda dolazi samo od Boga, Moćnog, Pravednog, 127 da bi izkomadao ili suzbio jedan dio nevjernih, da bi otišli pobijeđeni.

128 Ovaj posao se tebe ne tiče: bilo da se Bog vrati k njima, ili da ih kazni; oni su nepravedni.

129 Ono što je u nebesima i na zemlji pripada Bogu. On oprašta kome on hoće; on kažnjava koga on hoće. Bog je onaj koji oprašta, on je milosrdan.

130 O vi koji vjerujete! Ne živite od kaišarenja čineći više puta udvostručavanje. Bojte se Boga! Možda će te vi biti sretni.

131 Bojte se Vatre pripravljene nevjernicima. 132 Pokorite se Bogu i proroku. Možda će on učiniti milosrđe.

133 Pohitite prema oprostu svog Gospodina i prema Vrtu širokom kao nebesa i zemlja, pripravljenog onima koji se boje Boga; 134 onima koji daju milostinju, u bogatstvu i u oskudici; onima koji savlađuju svoju ljutnju; onima koji opraštaju ljudima – Bog voli one koji čine dobro – 135 onima koji, nakon što su izvršili jedno loše djelo ili su učinili štetu sami sebi, sjete se Boga i mole u njega oprost za svoje grijehe ; – Tko je onaj koji oprašta grijehe; ako to nije Bog ?– onima koji ne uztrajavaju u svojim postupanjima; dok ustvari znaju.

136 Evo onih koji će dobiti svoju nagradu: oprost od svojeg Gospodina; Vrtove gdje teku potoci; oni će u njima boraviti kao bezsmrtnici. Kako je lijepa nagrada onima koji čine dobro!

137 Događaji su se zbili prije vas; prođite zemljom: vidite kakv je bio svršetak onih koji su to proglašavali za laž.

138 Evo jednog jasnog objašnjenja ljudima; jedno Usmjerenje i nagovor onima koji se boje Boga.

139 Ne gubite hrabrosti; ne tugujte, jer ste vi nadmoćni ljudi, ako ste vjerujući.

140 Ako budete ranjeni, ista takva rana dopast će nevjerničkom puku.

Mi te dane ljudima izmjenjujemo da bi Bog prepoznao one koji vjeruju i da bi uzeo svjedoke među vama; – Bog ne voli nepravedne – 141 da bi Bog izkušai vjerujuće i da bi uništio nevjernike.

142 Računate li vi ući u Raj, prije nego Bog prepozna one među vama koji su se borili i one koji su strpljivi?

143 Da, vi biste željeli smrt prije nego ju susretnete; ali vi ste ju vidjeli i vi ju očekujete.

144 Muhamed je samo jedan prorok; brojni su proroci živjeli prije njega. Da li biste vi odustali, da je on umro, ili bio ubijen?

Onaj koji odustane ne škodi ni malo Bogu; ali Bog nagrađuje one koji su zahvalni.

145 Ne pripada nikome umrijeti ako to nije s dopuštenjem Božjim i prema onome što je neopozivo zapisano.

Nekome tko želi naknadu u ovom svijetu, mi dajemo jedan dio; nekome tko želi naknadu u budućem životu, mi ćemo mu dati jedan dio. Mi ćemo uskoro nagraditi one koji su zahvalni.

146 Koliki su se proroci borili, imajući uza se brojne učenike; oni se nisu pustili pobijediti poteškoćama koje su susretali na putu Božjem. Oni nisu slabili, oni nisu ustuknuli. –Bog voli one koji su strpljivi –

147 Njihova jedina riječ bijaše : « Gospode naš! Oprosti nam naše grijehove i naše neumjernosti u ponašanju. Učvrsti naše korake. Pomozi nam protiv nevjernog puka. »

148 Bog njima dakle dade nagradu u ovom svijetu, kao i najbolju nagradu u budućem životu. – Bog voli one koji čine dobro –

149 O vi koji vjerujete! Ako se vi pokorite nevjernicima, oni će vas nagnati da odustanete; vi će te se, tada, vratiti, izgubivši sve.

150 Ali ne!... Bog je vaš Gospodar, on, najbolji od pomoćnika!

151 Mi ćemo baciti strah u srca nevjernicima jer su pridružili Bogu ono čemu nikakva moć ne bijaše ustupljena. Njihovo boravište bit će vatra. Kojeg li groznog boravišta za bezbožne!

152 Bog je ispunio svoje obećanje prema vama, kad, s dopuštenjem njegovim, vi ste uništavali neprijatelje svoje, sve do časa kad ste se povukli, kad ste počeli osporavanja glede tog predmeta. Vi ste se pobunili nakon što vam je Bog bio pokazao ono što ste željeli.

Neki između vas željeli su ovaj svijet, neki između vas željeli su budući život. Bog, potom, i da bi vas izkušao, dao je da vaši neprijatelji pobjegnu ispred vas. On vam je sigurno oprostio. Bog je Gospodar milosti u korist vjerujućih.

153 Kad ste se nanovo uspinjali a da se niste obazirali na nikoga, i kad vas je Prorok pozivao iz pozadine vaših postrojbi, Bog je izmijenio za vas jednu tugu u drugu tugu,

       da se vi ne biste žalostili

ni zbog onoga što vam je izmaklo, ni zbog onoga što vam se dogodilo. – Bog je dobro obaviješten o onome što vi činite –

154 Nakon ožalošćenja, on na vas spusti sigurnost: jedan san koji obvi jedan dio vaših, dok su drugi bili zabrinuti.

Njihovo mnijenje o Bogu, nije bilo sukladno Istini; to je bila jedna predpostavka koja je izvirala iz neznanja.

Oni su govorili: « Ima li bilo čega u ovom poslu što bi se nas ticalo? »

Reci: « Posao u cijelosti pripada Bogu. »

Oni u sebi skrivaju ono što ne pokazuju. Oni kažu: « Da je posao ovisio o nama, naši ne bi bili ubijeni ovdje. »

Reci: « Čak i da ste vi ostali u svojim kućama smrt bi dosegla u njihovim krevetima one čija smrt bijaše propisana, da bi Bog ono što se nalazi u vašim srcima i da bi im se očistio sadržaj. » –Bog poznaje sadržaj srca –

155 Ako je bilo, među vama, onih koji su se okrenuli na dan kad su se dvije postrojbe susrele; to je samo zbog toga što je zloduh njih naveo da posrnu, zbog onoga što su učinili. Ali Bog je njima oprostio. Bog je, uistinu, onaj koji oprašta: on je pun milosti.

156 O vi koji vjerujete! Ne budite slični nevjernicima! Oni su rekli o svojoj braći koja prolaze zemljom i koja se bore: « Oni ne će umrijeti, oni ne bi bili ubijeni, da su ostali s nama. »

Nek načini od toga predmet straha u njihovim srcima! Bog stvara život i on usmrćuje. Bog savršeno vidi ono što vi činite.

157 Da ste vi bili ubijeni na Božjem putu ili da ste umrli, oprost i milosrđe Božje su uistinu bolji od onoga što vi gomilate.

158 Ako umrete ili budete ubijeni, vi će te sigurno biti okupljeni kod Boga.

159 Ti si bio blag glede njih po milosrdnosti Božjoj. Da si ti bio grub ili tvrdog srca, oni bi se odvojili od tebe.

Oprosti im! Moli oprost za njih; savjetuj se s njima o svakoj stvari; ali, kad si donio jednu odluku, pouzdaj se u Boga. – Bog voli one koji se pouzdaju u njega –

160 Ako vam Bog pomogne, nitko vas ne će pobijediti. Ako vas napusti, tko bi dakle, osim njega, mogao vama pomoći? – Vjerujući se pouzdaju u Boga –

161 Ne pristoji jednom proroku da vara. Onaj tko vara, doći će sa svojim grijehom na Dan Uskrsnuća.

Svaki će čovjek tada primiti nagradu za ono što je načinio. Nitko ne će biti oštećen.

162 Onaj koji je slijedio ugodnost Božju da li će biti sličan onome koji je izazvao srdžbu Božju i koji će imati Pakao za boravište? – Kojeg li groznog svršetka! – 163 Oni stvaraju jednu hijerarhiju kod Boga; Bog savršeno vidi ono što oni čine.

164 Bog je dodijelio milost vjerujućima kad im je poslao jednog Proroka uzetog između njih koji im govori svoje Redke, koji ih čisti, koji ih poučava Knjizi i Mudrosti, čak i ako su predhodno bili u očitom grijehu.

165 Kad vas je nevolja sustigla, – ali vi ste ju dvostruko nanijeli svojim neprijateljima – niste li vi rekli: « Odkud to dolazi? »

Odgovori: « To dalazi od vas. » –Bog je nadmoćan nad svakom stvari–

166 Ono što vas je doseglo, na dan kad su se dvije postrojbe susrele, to se dogodilo s Božjim dopuštenjem, da bi oni prepoznali vjerujuće i 167 da bi prepoznali licemjere.

Njima je rečeno: « Napredujte! Borite se na putu Božjem! » Ili pak: « Branite se! »

Oni su odgovorili: « Da se mi znamo boriti mi bismo vas sigurno slijedili. » – Oni se nađoše, tog dana, bliže nevjernosti nego vjeri –

Oni su svojim ustima rekli ono što nije u njihovim srcima. – Bog savršeno poznaje ono što oni skrivaju –

168 Mirno sjedeći u svojim boravištima, oni su govorili svojoj braći: « Oni ne bi bili ubijeni, da su nam se pokorili! »

Reci: « Izbjegnite dakle vi sami smrti, ako ste vjerodostojni! »

169 Naročito ne vjeruj da su oni koji su ubijeni na putu Božjem mrtvi. Oni su živi!

Oni će biti obskrbljeni dobrima kod svog Gospoda, 170 oni će biti sretni po milosti koju im je Bog dodijelio.

Oni se raduju jer znaju da oni koji će doći poslije njih i koji im se još nisu pridružili ne će više osjetiti nikakvog straha i da ne će biti ožalošćeni.

171 Oni se raduju dobročinstvu i milosti Božjoj; Bog ne pušta da se izgubi nagrada vjerujućima.

172 Jedna bezgranična nagrada je pričuvana onima koji su odgovorili Bogu i Proroku usprkos njihovim ranama; onima između njih koji čine dobro i koji se boje Boga.

173 Onima koji su rekli: « Ljudi su sigurno ujedinili svoje snage protiv vas; bojte se njih, » tada njihova vjera poraste, i oni odgovoriše: « Bog nama dostaje! Kojeg li izvrsnog Zaštitnika! »

174 Oni su se vratili s dobročinstvom i milošću Božjom. Nikakvo zlo nije njih dotaklo. Oni su htjeli ugoditi Bogu. – Bog je Gospodar neizmjerne milosti –

175 Zloduh je takav: on užasava svoje slugane. Ne bojte se njih, bojte se mene, ako ste vjerujući!

176 Nek te oni koji se strmoglavljuju prema nevjernosti ne žaloste. Oni uistinu u ničemu ne škode Bogu. Bog njima ne će dati ništa u budućem životu. Jedna strašna kazna je njima pripravljena.

177 Oni koji su trampili vjeru za nevjeru uistinu u ničemu ne škode Bogu. Jedna strašna kazna je njima pripravljena.

178 Nek oni koji su nevjerni ne misle da odgoda koju mi njima dodijeljujemo jeste njihovo dobro.

Odgoda koju im mi dodjeljujemo povećava njihov grijeh. Jedna sramna kazna je njima pripravljena.

179 Ne priliči Bogu ostaviti vjerujuće u prilici u kojoj se nalazite, ako to nije vrijeme razlikovanja lošeg od dobrog čovjeka.

Bog vas ne će upoznati s Tajnom; ali Bog izabire koga on hoće među svojim prorocima.

Vjerujte dakle u Boga i njegove proroke. Ako vi vjerujete, ako se bojite Boga, jedna nagrada bez granica vama je pričuvana.

180 Nek oni koji su pohlepni za onim što im je Bog dao iz svoje naklonosti ne smatraju to kao jedno osobno dobro; to je naprotiv, jedno zlo.

Uskoro, na Dan Uskrsnuća, oni će oko vrata nositi ono za čim su bili pohlepni.

Naslijeđe nebesa i zemlje pripada Bogu. Bog je dobro obaviješten o onome što vi činite.

181 Bog je sigurno čuo riječ onih koji su rekli: « Bog je siromah, a mi mi smo bogati! »

Mi pohranjujemo pismeno njihove riječi pamteći da su oni nepravedno ubijali proroke.

Mi ćemo njima reći: « Okusite kaznu Vatre 182 po cijeni onoga što su vaše ruke učinile. » – Bog nije nepravedan prema svojim slugama –

183 Ti ljudi su rekli: « Bog je sklopio savez s nama, zapovijedajući nam da ne vjerujemo u jednog proroka dok nam on ne bude pokazao jednu žrtvu koju proždire vatra. »

Reci: « Prije mene, došli su proroci s odlučnim dokazima, i s onim o čemu vi govorite, Zašto ste vi njih ubijali, ako ste vjerodostojni? »

184 Ako te optuže za laž, oni su također proglašavali lažcima proroke koji su došli prije tebe, s dokazima, s Pismima, i sa svjetlom Knjigom.

185 Svaki će čovjek okusiti smrt: vi će te sigurno primiti svoju naknadu na Dan Uskrsnuća.

Onaj koji će biti sačuvan od Vatre i uveden u Raj iskusit će sreću.

Život ovog svijeta samo je jedno kratkotrajno i varljivo uživanje.

186 Vi će te sigurno biti izkušani u svojim dobrima i u svojim osobama; vi će te čuti mnogo kletvi od onih kojima je Knjiga bila dana prije vas i od mnogobožaca.

Ako ste postojani, ako se bojite Boga: evo uistinu naputka potrebnog za poduzeti nešto.

187 Kad je Bog sklopio savez s onima kojima je Knjiga bila dana, on im je rekao: « Vi će te nju objasniti ljudima, vi nju ne će te čuvati skrivenom, » ali oni su nju bacili iza leđa svojih; oni su ju prodali po niskoj cijeni. Koje li mrske trampe!

188 Ne računajte da oni koji se raduju onome što su učinili i koji vole bitri hvaljeni za ono što nisu učinili, ne računajte da će oni biti zaštićeni od kazne. Jedna bolna kazna njima je pripravljena.

189 Kraljevstvo nebesa i zemlje pripada Bogu. Bog je nadmoćan nad svakom stvari.

190 U stvaranju nebesa i zemlje, u izmjeni noći i dana, ima uistinu Znakova za one koji su nadareni razumom, 191 za one koji misle na Boga, uspravni, posjednuti ili ležeći i koji razmišljaju o stvaranju nebesa i zemlje.

Gospode naš! Ti sve ovo nisi stvorio za ništa! Slava tebi! Sačuvaj nas od kazne Vatrom.

192 Gospode naš! Ti pokrivaš sramotama onoga koga uvodiš u Vatru. Nema branitelja za nepravedne.

193 Gospode naš! Mi smo čuli oglasitelja vikati da bi nas prizvao vjeri: « Vjerujte u svog Gospoda! » i mi smo povjerovali.

Gospode naš! Oprosti nam naše grijehove! Izbriši naša loša djela! Pozovi nas k sebi s onima koji su dobri!

194 Gospode naš! Dodijeli nam ono što si nam obećao glasom svojih proroka; ne rastuži nas na Dan Uskrsnuća. – Ti nikad nisi propustio svoje obećanje –

195 Njihov ih je Gospod uslišao: « Ja ne puštam da se izgubi djelo onoga koji, između vas, ljudi ili žena, postupa dobro. Vi ovisite jedni od drugih!

Ja ću izbrisati dobra djela onima koji su izbjeglice, onima koji su bili istjerani iz svojih kuća, onima koji su patili na mom putu, onima koji su se borili i koji su bili ubijeni.

Ja ću njih sigurno uvesti u Vrt gdje teku potoci. To će biti nagrada s Božje strane.» Bože!... Najljepša nagrada se nalazi kod njega!

196 Nek te komešanje nevjernika ove zemlje ne uznemirava. 197 Kukavno kratkotrajno uživanje! Pakao će po tome biti njihovo boravište: kojeg li ogavnog ležaja za počinak!

198 Ali Vrtovi gdje teku potoci obećani su onima koji se boje svog Gospoda; oni će ondje boraviti kao bezsmrtnici; oni će biti gosti Božji. – Sve što se nalazi kod Boga bolje je za one koji su dobri. –

199 Ima, među ljudima Knjige, ljudi koji vjeruju u Boga, u ono što je vama bilo odkriveno, i u ono što je njima bilo odkriveno. Ponizni pred Bogom, oni nisu po niskoj cijeni prodali Znakove Božje.

Oni će naći svoju naknadu kod svog Gospodina. Bog je, uistinu, hitar u svojim računima.

200 O vi koji vjerujete! Budite strpljivi! Uzajamno se ohrabrujte u strpljivosti!

Budite čvrsti! Bojte se Boga! Možda će te vi biti sretni!
