In the Name of Allâh, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. Alif-Lâm-Mîm. [These letters are
one of the miracles of the Qur'ân, and none but Allâh
(Alone) knows their meanings].
2. Allâh! Lâ ilahâ illa Huwa
(none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living,
the One Who sustains and protects all that exists.
3. It is He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur'ân)
to you (Muhammad SAW)
with truth, confirming what came before it. And he sent down the
Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel).
4. Aforetime, as a guidance to mankind, And He sent down
the criterion [of judgement between right and wrong (this Qur'ân)].
Truly, those who disbelieve in the Ayât (proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh,
for them there is a severe torment; and Allâh is All-Mighty,
All-Able of Retribution.
5. Truly, nothing is hidden from Allâh, in the earth
or in the heavens.
6. He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He pleases.
Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be
worshipped but He), the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
7. It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad SAW) the Book (this Qur'ân).
In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations
of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkâm (commandments,
etc.), Al-Farâ'id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud
(legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)];
and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts
there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is
not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism
and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none
knows its hidden meanings save Allâh. And those who are
firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in it; the
whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord."
And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir
8. (They say): "Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate
(from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy
from You. Truly, You are the Bestower."
9. Our Lord! Verily, it is You Who will gather mankind
together on the Day about which there is no doubt. Verily, Allâh
never breaks His Promise".
10. Verily, those who disbelieve, neither their properties
nor their offspring will avail them whatsoever against Allâh;
and it is they who will be fuel of the Fire.
11. Like the behaviour of the people of Fir'aun (Pharaoh)
and those before them; they belied Our Ayât (proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), so Allâh
seized (destroyed) them for their sins. And Allâh is Severe
12. Say (O Muhammad SAW)
to those who disbelieve: "You will be defeated and gathered
together to Hell, and worst indeed is that place to rest."
13. There has already been a sign for you (O Jews) in
the two armies that met (in combat i.e. the battle of Badr): One
was fighting in the Cause of Allâh, and as for the other
(they) were disbelievers. They (the believers) saw them (the disbelievers)
with their own eyes twice their number (although they were thrice
their number). And Allâh supports with His Victory whom
He pleases. Verily, in this is a lesson for those who understand.
(See Verse 8:44). (Tafsir At-Tabarî)
14. Beautified for men is the love of things they covet;
women, children, much of gold and silver (wealth), branded beautiful
horses, cattle and well-tilled land. This is the pleasure of the
present world's life; but Allâh has the excellent return
(Paradise with flowing rivers, etc.) with Him.
15. Say: "Shall I inform you of things far better
than those? For Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2)
there are Gardens (Paradise) with their Lord, underneath which
rivers flow. Therein (is their) eternal (home) and Azwâjun
Mutahharatun (purified mates or
wives) [i.e. they will have no menses, urine, or stool, etc.],
And Allâh will be pleased with them. And Allâh is
All-Seer of the (His) slaves".
16. Those who say: "Our Lord! We have indeed believed,
so forgive us our sins and save us from the punishment of the
17. (They are) those who are patient ones, those who are
true (in Faith, words, and deeds), and obedient with sincere devotion
in worship to Allâh. Those who spend [give the Zakât
and alms in the Way of Allâh] and those who pray and
beg Allâh's Pardon in the last hours of the night.
18. Allâh bears witness that Lâ ilâha
illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), and
the angels, and those having knowledge (also give this witness);
(He is always) maintaining His creation in Justice. Lâ
ilâh illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped
but He), the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
19. Truly, the religion with Allâh is Islâm.
Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not
differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come
to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayât (proofs,
evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh, then
surely, Allâh is Swift in calling to account.
20. So if they dispute with you (Muhammad SAW) say: "I have submitted myself
to Allâh (in Islâm), and (so have) those who follow
me." And say to those who were given the Scripture (Jews
and Christians) and to those who are illiterates (Arab pagans):
"Do you (also) submit yourselves (to Allâh in Islâm)?"
If they do, they are rightly guided; but if they turn away, your
duty is only to convey the Message; and Allâh is All-Seer
of (His ) slaves.
21. Verily! Those who disbelieve in the Ayât
(proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)
of Allâh and kill the Prophets without right, and kill those
men who order just dealings,
announce to them a painful
22. They are those whose works will be lost in this world
and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.
23. Have you not seen those who have been given a portion
of the Scripture? They are being invited to the Book of Allâh
to settle their dispute, then a party of them turn away, and they
24. This is because they say: "The Fire shall not
touch us but for a number of days." And that which they used
to invent regarding their religion has deceived them.
25. How (will it be) when We gather them together on the
Day about which there is no doubt (i.e. the Day of Resurrection).
And each person will be paid in full what he has earned? And they
will not be dealt with unjustly.
26. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"O Allâh! Possessor of the kingdom, You give the kingdom
to whom You will, and You take the kingdom from whom You will,
and You endue with honour whom You will, and You humiliate whom
You will. In Your Hand is the good. Verily,
You are Able to do all things.
27. You make the night to enter into the day, and You
make the day to enter into the night (i.e. increase and decrease
in the hours of the night and the day during winter and summer),
You bring the living out of the dead, and You bring the dead out
of the living. And You give wealth and sustenance to whom You
will, without limit (measure or account).
28. Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliyâ
(supporters, helpers, etc.) instead of the believers, and
whoever does that will never be helped by Allâh in any way,
except if you indeed fear a danger from them. And Allâh
warns you against Himself (His Punishment),
and to Allâh is the final return.
29. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"Whether you hide what is in your breasts or reveal it, Allâh
knows it, and He knows what is in the heavens and what is in the
earth. And Allâh is Able to do all things."
30. On the Day when every person will be confronted with
all the good he has done, and all the evil he has done, he will
wish that there were a great distance between him and his evil.
And Allâh warns you against Himself (His Punishment) and
Allâh is full of Kindness to the (His) slaves.
31. Say (O Muhammad SAW
to mankind): "If you (really) love Allâh then follow
me (i.e. accept Islâmic Monotheism, follow the Qur'ân
and the Sunnah), Allâh will love you and forgive
you of your sins. And Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
32. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"Obey Allâh and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW)." But if they turn away,
then Allâh does not like the disbelievers.
33. Allâh chose Adam, Nûh (Noah), the family
of Ibrâhim (Abraham) and the family of 'Imrân above
the 'Alamîn (mankind and jinns) (of their times).
34. Offspring, one of the other, and Allâh is the
35. (Remember) when the wife of 'Imrân said: "O
my Lord! I have vowed to You what (the child that) is in my womb
to be dedicated for Your services (free from all worldly work;
to serve Your Place of worship), so accept this, from me. Verily,
You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knowing."
36. Then when she delivered her [child Maryam (Mary)],
she said: "O my Lord! I have delivered a female child,"
- and Allâh knew better what she delivered, - "And
the male is not like the female, and I have named her Maryam
(Mary), and I seek refuge with You (Allâh) for her and for
her offspring from Shaitan (Satan), the outcast."
37. So her Lord (Allâh) accepted her with goodly
acceptance. He made her grow in a good manner and put her under
the care of Zakariyâ (Zachariya). Every time he entered
Al-Mihrâb to (visit) her
, he found her supplied with sustenance. He said: "O Maryam
(Mary)! From where have you got this?" She said, "This
is from Allâh." Verily, Allâh provides sustenance
to whom He wills, without limit."
38. At that time Zakariyâ (Zachariya) invoked his
Lord, saying: "O my Lord! Grant me from You, a good offspring.
You are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation."
39. Then the angels called him, while he was standing
in prayer in Al-Mihrâb (a praying place or a private
room), (saying): "Allâh gives you glad tidings of Yahya
(John), confirming (believing in) the Word from Allâh [i.e.
the creation of 'Iesa (Jesus) <><>, the Word from
Allâh ("Be!" - and he was!)], noble, keeping away
from sexual relations with women, a Prophet, from among the righteous."
40. He said: "O my Lord! How can I have a son when
I am very old, and my wife is barren?" Allâh said:
"Thus Allâh does what He wills."
41. He said: "O my Lord! Make a sign for me."
Allâh said: "Your sign is that you shall not speak
to mankind for three days except with signals. And remember your
Lord much (by praising Him again and again), and glorify (Him)
in the afternoon and in the morning."
42. And (remember) when the angels said: "O Maryam
(Mary)! Verily, Allâh has chosen you, purified you (from
polytheism and disbelief), and chosen you above the women of the
'Alamîn (mankind and jinns) (of her lifetime)."
43. O Mary! "Submit yourself with obedience to your
Lord (Allâh, by worshipping none but Him Alone) and prostrate
yourself, and Irkâ'i (bow down etc.) along with Ar-Râki'ûn
(those who bow down etc.)."
44. This is a part of the news of the Ghaib (unseen,
i.e. the news of the past nations of which you have no knowledge)
which We inspire you with (O Muhammad SAW). You were not with them, when
they cast lots with their pens as to which of them should be charged
with the care of Maryam (Mary); nor were you with them when they
45. (Remember) when the angels said: "O Maryam (Mary)!
Verily, Allâh gives you the glad tidings of a Word ["Be!"
- and he was! i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary)] from
Him, his name will be the Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam
(Mary), held in honour in this world and in the Hereafter, and
will be one of those who are near to Allâh."
46. "He will speak to the people in the cradle
and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous."
47. She said: "O my Lord! How shall I have a son
when no man has touched me." He said: "So (it will be)
for Allâh creates what He wills. When He has decreed something,
He says to it only: "Be!" and it is.
48. And He (Allâh) will teach him ['Iesa (Jesus)]
the Book and Al-Hikmah (i.e. the Sunnah, the faultless
speech of the Prophets, wisdom, etc.), (and) the Taurât
(Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel).
49. And will make him ['Iesa (Jesus)] a Messenger to the
Children of Israel (saying): "I have come to you with a sign
from your Lord, that I design for you out of clay, as it were,
the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird
by Allâh's Leave; and I heal him who was born blind, and
the leper, and I bring the dead to life by Allâh's Leave.
And I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses.
Surely, therein is a sign for you, if you believe.
50. And I have come confirming that which was before me
of the Taurât (Torah), and to make lawful to you part of
what was forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a proof
from your Lord. So fear Allâh and obey me.
51. Truly! Allâh is my Lord and your Lord, so worship
Him (Alone). This is the Straight Path.
52. Then when 'Iesa (Jesus) came to know of their disbelief,
he said: "Who will be my helpers in Allâh's Cause?"
Al-Hawâriûn (the disciples) said: "We
are the helpers of Allâh; we believe in Allâh, and
bear witness that we are Muslims (i.e. we submit to Allâh)."
53. Our Lord! We believe in what You have sent down, and
we follow the Messenger ['Iesa (Jesus)]; so write us down among
those who bear witness (to the truth i.e. Lâ ilâha
ill-Allâh - none has the right to be worshipped but
54. And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus)
and Allâh planned too. And Allâh is the Best of the
55. And (remember) when Allâh said: "O 'Iesa
(Jesus)! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you
[of the forged statement that 'Iesa (Jesus) is Allâh's son]
of those who disbelieve, and I will make those who follow you
(Monotheists, who worship none but Allâh) superior to those
who disbelieve [in the Oneness of Allâh, or disbelieve in
some of His Messengers, e.g. Muhammad SAW, 'Iesa (Jesus), Mûsa (Moses),
etc., or in His Holy Books, e.g. the Taurât (Torah), the
Injeel (Gospel), the Qur'ân] till the Day of Resurrection.
Then you will return to Me and I will judge between you in the
matters in which you used to dispute."
56. "As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them
with a severe torment in this world and in the Hereafter, and
they will have no helpers."
57. And as for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh)
and do righteous good deeds, Allâh will pay them their reward
in full. And Allâh does not like the Zâlimûn
(polytheists and wrong-doers).
58. This is what We recite to you (O Muhammad SAW) of the Verses and the Wise Reminder
(i.e. the Qur'ân).
59. Verily, the likeness of 'Iesa (Jesus) before Allâh
is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said
to him: "Be!" - and he was.
60. (This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of those
61. Then whoever disputes with you concerning him ['Iesa
(Jesus)] after (all this) knowledge that has come to you, [i.e.
'Iesa (Jesus)] being a slave of Allâh, and having no share
in Divinity) say: (O Muhammad SAW)
"Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and
your women, ourselves and yourselves - then we pray and invoke
(sincerely) the Curse of Allâh upon those who lie."
62. Verily! This is the true narrative [about the story
of 'Iesa (Jesus)], and, Lâ ilâha ill-Allâh
(none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh, the
One and the Only True God, Who has neither a wife nor a son).
And indeed, Allâh is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
63. And if they turn away (and do not accept these true
proofs and evidences), then surely, Allâh is All-Aware of
those who do mischief.
64. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Come to
a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but
Allâh, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that
none of us shall take others as lords besides Allâh.
Then, if they turn away, say: "Bear witness that we are Muslims."
65. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Why
do you dispute about Ibrâhim (Abraham), while the Taurât
(Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) were not revealed till after him?
Have you then no sense?
66. Verily, you are those who have disputed about that
of which you have knowledge. Why do you then dispute concerning
that which you have no knowledge? It is Allâh Who knows,
and you know not.
67. Ibrâhim (Abraham) was neither a Jew nor a Christian,
but he was a true Muslim Hanifa (Islâmic Monotheism
- to worship none but Allâh Alone) and he was not of Al-Mushrikûn
68. Verily, among mankind who have the best claim to Ibrâhim
(Abraham) are those who followed him, and this Prophet (Muhammad
SAW) and those who have believed (Muslims).
And Allâh is the Walî (Protector and Helper)
of the believers.
69. A party of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)
wish to lead you astray. But they shall not lead astray anyone
except themselves, and they perceive not.
70. O people of the Scripture! (Jews and Christians):
"Why do you disbelieve in the Ayât of Allâh,
[the Verses about Prophet Muhammad SAW
present in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] while
you (yourselves) bear witness (to their truth)."
71. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): "Why
do you mix truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you
72. And a party of the people of the Scripture say: "Believe
in the morning in that which is revealed to the believers (Muslims),
and reject it at the end of the day, so that they may turn back.
73. And believe no one except the one who follows your
religion. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"Verily! Right guidance is the Guidance of Allâh"
and do not believe that anyone can receive like that which you
have received (of Revelation) except when he follows your religion,
otherwise they would engage you in argument before your Lord.
Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"All the bounty is in the Hand of Allâh;
He grants to whom He wills. And Allâh is All-Sufficient
for His creatures' needs, the All-Knower."
74. He selects for His Mercy (Islâm and the Qur'ân
with Prophethood) whom He wills and Allâh is the Owner of
75. Among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)
is he who, if entrusted with a Cantar (a great amount of
wealth, etc.), will readily pay it back; and among them there
is he who, if entrusted with a single silver coin, will not repay
it unless you constantly stand demanding, because they say: "There
is no blame on us to betray and take the properties of the illiterates
(Arabs)." But they tell a lie against Allâh while they
76. Yes, whoever fulfils his pledge and fears Allâh
much; verily, then Allâh loves those who are Al-Muttaqûn
(the pious - see V.2:2).
77. Verily, those who purchase a small gain at the cost
of Allâh's Covenant and their oaths, they shall have no
portion in the Hereafter (Paradise). Neither will Allâh
speak to them, nor look at them on the Day of Resurrection, nor
will He purify them, and they shall have a painful torment.
78. And verily, among them is a party who distort the
Book with their tongues (as they read), so that you may think
it is from the Book, but it is not from the Book, and they say:
"This is from Allâh," but it is not from Allâh;
and they speak a lie against Allâh while they know it.
79. It is not (possible) for any human being to whom Allâh
has given the Book and Al-Hukma (the knowledge and understanding
of the laws of religion, etc.) and Prophethood to say to the people:
"Be my worshippers rather than Allâh's." On the
contrary (he would say): "Be you Rabbaniyun (learned
men of religion who practise what they know and also preach others),
because you are teaching the Book, and you are studying it."
80. Nor would he order you to take angels and Prophets
for lords (gods). Would he order you to disbelieve
after you have submitted to Allâh's Will? (Tafsir At-Tabarî).
81. And (remember) when Allâh took the Covenant
of the Prophets, saying: "Take whatever I gave you from the
Book and Hikmah (understanding of the Laws of Allâh,
etc.), and afterwards there will come to you a Messenger (Muhammad
SAW) confirming what is with you;
you must, then, believe in him and help him." Allâh
said: "Do you agree (to it) and will you take up My Covenant
(which I conclude with you)?" They said: "We agree."
He said: "Then bear witness; and I am with you among the
witnesses (for this)."
82. Then whoever turns away after this, they are the Fâsiqûn
(rebellious: those who turn away from Allâh's Obedience).
83. Do they seek other than the religion of Allâh
(the true Islâmic Monotheism worshipping none but Allâh
Alone), while to Him submitted all creatures in the heavens and
the earth, willingly or unwillingly. And to Him shall they all
84. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"We believe in Allâh and in what has been sent down
to us, and what was sent down to Ibrâhim (Abraham), Ismâ'il
(Ishmael), Ishâque (Isaac), Ya'qûb (Jacob) and Al-Asbât
[the twelve sons of Ya'qûb (Jacob)] and what was given
to Mûsa (Moses), 'Iesa (Jesus) and the Prophets from their
Lord. We make no distinction between one another among them and
to Him (Allâh) we have submitted (in Islâm)."
85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm,
it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will
be one of the losers.
86. How shall Allâh guide a people who disbelieved
after their belief and after they bore witness that the Messenger
is true and after clear proofs had come unto them? And Allâh
guides not the people who are Zâlimûn (polytheists
87. They are those whose recompense is that on them (rests)
the Curse of Allâh, of the angels, and of all mankind.
88. They will abide therein (Hell). Neither will their
torment be lightened, nor will it be delayed or postponed (for
89. Except for those who repent after that and do righteous
deeds. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
90. Verily, those who disbelieved after their Belief and
then went on increasing in their disbelief (i.e. disbelief in
the Qur'ân and in Prophet Muhammad SAW) - never will their repentance
be accepted [because they repent only by their tongues and not
from their hearts]. And they are those who are astray.
91. Verily, those who disbelieved, and died while they
were disbelievers, the (whole) earth full of gold will not be
accepted from anyone of them even if they offered it as a ransom.
For them is a painful torment and they will have no helpers.
92. By no means shall you attain Al-Birr (piety,
righteousness, etc., it means here Allâh's Reward, i.e.
Paradise), unless you spend (in Allâh's Cause) of that which
you love; and whatever of good you spend, Allâh knows it
93. All food was lawful to the Children of Israel, except
what Israel made unlawful for himself before the Taurât
(Torah) was revealed. Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Bring here the Taurât
(Torah) and recite it, if you are truthful."
94. Then after that, whosoever shall invent a lie against
such shall indeed be the Zâlimûn
95. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"Allâh has spoken the truth; follow the religion of
Ibrâhim (Abraham) Hanifa (Islâmic Monotheism,
i.e. he used to worship Allâh Alone), and he was not of
Al-Mushrikûn." (See V.2:105)
96. Verily, the first House (of worship) appointed for
mankind was that at Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessing,
and a guidance for Al-'Alamîn (the mankind and jinns).
97. In it are manifest signs (for example), the Maqâm
(place) of Ibrâhim (Abraham); whosoever enters it, he
attains security. And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the
House (Ka'bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allâh, those
who can afford the expenses (for one's conveyance, provision and
residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage
to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allâh], then Allâh
stands not in need of any of the 'Alamîn (mankind
98. Say: "O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)!
Why do you reject the Ayât of Allâh (proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) while Allâh
is Witness to what you do?"
99. Say: "O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)!
Why do you stop those who have believed, from the Path of Allâh,
seeking to make it seem crooked, while you (yourselves) are witnesses
[to Muhammad SAW
as a Messenger of Allâh and Islâm (Allâh's Religion,
i.e. to worship none but Him Alone)]? And Allâh is not unaware
of what you do."
100. O you who believe! If you obey a group of those who
were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians), they would (indeed)
render you disbelievers after you have believed!
101. And how would you disbelieve, while unto you are
recited the Verses of Allâh, and among you is His Messenger
And whoever holds firmly to Allâh, (i.e. follows Islâm
Allâh's Religion, and obeys all that Allâh has ordered,
practically), then he is indeed guided to a Right Path.
102. O you who believe! Fear Allâh (by doing all
that He has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden)
as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember
Him always], and die not except in a state of Islâm (as
Muslims) with complete submission to Allâh.
103. And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of
Allâh (i.e. this Qur'ân), and be not divided among
yourselves, and remember Allâh's Favour
on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your
hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in
Islâmic Faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire,
and He saved you from it. Thus Allâh makes His Ayât
(proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.,)
clear to you, that you may be guided.
104. Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting
to all that is good (Islâm), enjoining Al-Ma'rûf
(i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm orders
one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief
and all that Islâm has forbidden). And it is they who are
105. And be not as those who divided and differed among
themselves after the clear proofs had come to them. It is they
for whom there is an awful torment.
106. On the Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) when some
faces will become white and some faces will become black; as for
those whose faces will become black (to them will be said): "Did
you reject Faith after accepting it? Then taste the torment (in
Hell) for rejecting Faith."
107. And for those whose faces will become white, they
will be in Allâh's Mercy (Paradise), therein they shall
108. These are the Verses of Allâh: We recite them
to you (O Muhammad SAW)
in truth, and Allâh wills no injustice to the 'Alâmîn
(mankind and jinns).
109. And to Allâh belongs all that is in the heavens
and all that is in the earth. And all matters go back (for decision)
110. You [true believers in Islâmic Monotheism,
and real followers of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sunnah (legal ways,
etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you
enjoin Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and
all that Islâm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism,
disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden), and you believe
in Allâh. And had the people of the
Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better
for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them
are Al-Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allâh
- and rebellious against Allâh's Command).
111. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance;
and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs,
and they will not be helped.
112. Indignity is put over them wherever they may be,
except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allâh,
and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allâh,
and destruction is put over them. This is because they disbelieved
in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,
signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh and killed the Prophets
without right. This is because they disobeyed (Allâh) and
used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allâh's disobedience,
crimes and sins).
113. Not all of them are alike; a party of the people
of the Scripture stand for the right, they recite the Verses of
Allâh during the hours of the night, prostrating themselves
114. They believe in Allâh and the Last Day; they
enjoin Al-Ma'rûf (Islâmic Monotheism, and following
Prophet Muhammad SAW)
and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and opposing
Prophet Muhammad SAW);
and they hasten in (all) good works; and they are among the righteous.
115. And whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected
of them; for Allâh knows well those who are Al-Muttaqûn
(the pious - see V.2:2).
116. Surely, those who reject Faith (disbelieve in Muhammad
SAW as being Allâh's Prophet
and in all that which he has brought from Allâh), neither
their properties, nor their offspring will avail them aught against
Allâh. They are the dwellers of the Fire, therein they will
abide. (Tafsir AtTabarî,
Vol. 4, Page 58).
117. The likeness of what they spend in this world is
the likeness of a wind which is extremely cold; it struck the
harvest of a people who did wrong aginst themselves and destroyed
it, (i.e. the good deed of a person is only accepted if he is
a monotheist and believes in all the Prophets of Allâh,
including Christ <><>
and Muhammad SAW).
Allâh wronged them not, but they wronged themselves.
118. O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitânah
(advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.)
those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites)
since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They
desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from
their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed
We have made plain to you the Ayât (proofs, evidences,
verses) if you understand.
119. Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love
you not, and you believe in all the Scriptures [i.e. you believe
in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), while they
disbelieve in your Book, the Qur'ân]. And when they meet
you, they say, "We believe". But when they are alone,
they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage. Say: "Perish
in your rage. Certainly, Allâh knows what is in the breasts
(all the secrets)."
120. If a good befalls you, it grieves them, but if some
evil overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if you remain patient
and become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2), not
the least harm will their cunning do to you. Surely, Allâh
surrounds all that they do.
121. And (remember) when you (Muhammad SAW) left your household in the morning
to post the believers at their stations for the battle (of Uhud).
And Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
122. When two parties from among you were about to lose
heart, but Allâh was their Walî (Supporter
and Protector). And in Allâh should the believers put their
123. And Allâh has already made you victorious at
Badr, when you were a weak little force. So fear Allâh much
[abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden
and love Allâh much, perform all kinds of good deeds which
He has ordained] that you may be grateful.
