In the Name of Allâh, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. O you who believe! Fulfill (your) obligations. Lawful
to you (for food) are all the beasts of cattle except that which
will be announced to you (herein), game (also) being unlawful
when you assume Ihrâm for Hajj or 'Umrah
(pilgrimage). Verily, Allâh commands that which
2. O you who believe! Violate not the sanctity of
the Symbols of Allâh, nor of the Sacred Month, nor of the
animals brought for sacrifice, nor the garlanded people or animals,
etc. [Marked by the garlands on their necks made from the
outer part of the treestems (of Makkah) for their security],
nor the people coming to the Sacred House (Makkah), seeking the
bounty and good pleasure of their Lord. But when you finish
the Ihrâm (of Hajj or 'Umrah), you
may hunt, and let not the hatred of some people in (once) stopping
you from AlMasjidalHarâm (at Makkah)
lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part). Help
you one another in AlBirr and AtTaqwa (virtue,
righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and
transgression. And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh
is Severe in punishment.
3. Forbidden to you (for food) are: Al-Maytatah
(the dead animals - cattle-beast not slaughtered), blood,
the flesh of swine, and the meat of that which has been slaughtered
as a sacrifice for others than Allâh, or has been slaughtered
for idols, etc., or on which Allâh's Name has not been mentioned
while slaughtering, and that which has been killed by strangling,
or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by the goring
of horns - and that which has been (partly) eaten by a wild animal
- unless you are able to slaughter it (before its death)
and that which is sacrificed (slaughtered) on AnNusub
(stone altars). (Forbidden) also is to use arrows
seeking luck or decision, (all) that is Fisqun (disobedience
of Allâh and sin). This day, those who disbelieved
have given up all hope of your religion, so fear them not, but
fear Me. This day, I have perfected your religion for you,
completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm
as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe
hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned
meats), then surely, Allâh is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
4. They ask you (O Muhammad SAW) what is lawful for them (as food
). Say: "Lawful unto you are AtTayyibât
[all kind of Halâl (lawfulgood) foods which
Allâh has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals,
milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.)]. And those
beasts and birds of prey which you have trained as hounds, training
and teaching them (to catch) in the manner as directed to you
by Allâh; so eat of what they catch for you, but pronounce
the Name of Allâh over it, and fear Allâh. Verily,
Allâh is Swift in reckoning."
5. Made lawful to you this day are AtTayyibât
[all kinds of Halâl (lawful) foods, which Allâh
has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, etc., milk
products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.). The food (slaughtered
cattle, eatable animals, etc.) of the people of the Scripture
(Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to
them. (Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the
believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture
(Jews and Christians) before your time, when you have given their
due Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife
at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e. taking
them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse,
nor taking them as girl-friends. And whosoever disbelieves
in the Oneness of Allâh and in all the other Articles of
Faith [i.e. His (Allâh's), Angels, His Holy Books,
His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection and AlQadar (Divine
Preordainments)], then fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter
he will be among the losers.
6. O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salât
(the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to
the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash)
your feet up to ankles. If you are in
a state of Janâba (i.e. had a sexual discharge),
purify yourself (bathe your whole body). But if you are ill
or on a journey or any of you comes from answering the call of
nature, or you have been in contact with women (i.e. sexual
intercourse) and you find no water, then perform Tayammum
with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands.
Allâh does not want to place you in difficulty, but He wants
to purify you, and to complete His Favour on you that you may
7. And remember Allâh's Favour upon you and
His Covenant with which He bound you when you said: "We hear
and we obey." And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh
is AllKnower of the secrets of (your) breasts.
8. O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allâh
and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others
make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety,
and fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is WellAcquainted
with what you do.
9. Allâh has promised those who believe (in
the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) and do
deeds of righteousness, that for them there is forgiveness and
a great reward (i.e. Paradise).
10. They who disbelieve and deny our Ayât
(proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)
are those who will be the dwellers of the Hellfire.
11. O you who believe! Remember the Favour of Allâh
unto you when some people desired (made a plan) to stretch out
their hands against you, but (Allâh) withheld their hands
from you. So fear Allâh. And in Allâh let
believers put their trust.
12. Indeed Allâh took the covenant from the
Children of Israel (Jews), and We appointed twelve leaders among
them. And Allâh said: "I am with you if you perform
As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât) and
give Zakât and believe in My Messengers; honour and
assist them, and lend to Allâh a good loan. Verily,
I will remit your sins and admit you to Gardens under which rivers
flow (in Paradise). But if any of you after this, disbelieved,
he has indeed gone astray from the Straight Path."
13. So because of their breach of their covenant,
We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard. They change
the words from their (right) places and have abandoned a good
part of the Message that was sent to them.
And you will not cease to discover deceit in them, except a few
of them. But forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds). Verily,
Allâh loves AlMuhsinûn (gooddoers
- see V.2:112).
14. And from those who call themselves Christians,
We took their covenant, but they have abandoned a good part of
the Message that was sent to them. So We planted
amongst them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection (when
they discarded Allâh's Book, disobeyed Allâh's Messengers
and His Orders and transgressed beyond bounds in Allâh's
disobedience), and Allâh will inform them of what they used
15. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)!
Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad SAW) explaining to you much of that
which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over (i.e. leaving
out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you
from Allâh a light (Prophet Muhammad SAW ) and a plain Book (this Qur'ân).
16. Wherewith Allâh guides all those who seek
His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of
darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to a Straight
Way (Islâmic Monotheism).
17. Surely, in disbelief are they who say that Allâh
is the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary). Say
(O Muhammad SAW):
"Who then has the least power against Allâh, if He
were to destroy the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), his mother,
and all those who are on the earth together?" And to Allâh
belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that
is between them. He creates what He wills. And Allâh
is Able to do all things.
18. And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We
are the children of Allâh and His loved ones." Say:
"Why then does He punish you for your sins?" Nay, you
are but human beings, of those He has created, He forgives whom
He wills and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allâh
belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that
is between them, and to Him is the return (of all).
19. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)!
Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad SAW) making (things) clear unto you,
after a break in (the series of) Messengers, lest you say: "There
came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner."
But now has come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner. And
Allâh is Able to do all things.
20. And (remember) when Mûsa (Moses) said to
his people: "O my people! Remember the Favour of Allâh
to you, when He made Prophets among you, made you kings, and gave
you what He had not given to any other among the 'Alamîn
(mankind and jinns, in the past)."
21. "O my people! Enter the holy land (Palestine)
which Allâh has assigned to you, and turn not back (in flight)
for then you will be returned as losers."
22. They said: "O Mûsa (Moses)! In it (this
holy land) are a people of great strength, and we shall never
enter it, till they leave it; when they leave, then we will enter."
23. Two men of those who feared (Allâh and)
on whom Allâh had bestowed His Grace [they were íæÔÚ
æ ßÇáÈ Yûsha' (Joshua)
and Kâlab (Caleb)] said: "Assault them through the
gate, for when you are in, victory will be yours, and put your
trust in Allâh if you are believers indeed."
24. They said: "O Mûsa (Moses)! We shall
never enter it as long as they are there. So go you and your
Lord and fight you two, we are sitting right here."
25. He [Mûsa (Moses)] said: "O my Lord!
I have power only over myself and my brother, so separate us from
the people who are the Fâsiqûn (rebellious
and disobedient to Allâh)!"
26. (Allâh) said: "Therefore it (this holy
land) is forbidden to them for forty years; in distraction they
will wander through the land. So be not sorrowful over the
people who are the Fâsiqûn (rebellious and
disobedient to Allâh)."
27. And (O Muhammad SAW)
recite to them (the Jews) the story of the two sons of Adam [Hâbil
(Abel) and Qâbil (Cain)] in truth; when each offered a sacrifice
(to Allâh), it was accepted from the one but not from the
other. The latter said to the former: "I will surely
kill you." The former said: "Verily,
Allâh accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqûn
(the pious - see V.2:2)."
28. "If you do stretch your hand against me to
kill me, I shall never stretch my hand against you to kill you,
for I fear Allâh; the Lord of the 'Alamîn (mankind,
jinns, and all that exists)."
29. "Verily, I intend to let you draw my sin
on yourself as well as yours, then you will be one of the dwellers
of the Fire, and that is the recompense of the Zâlimûn
(polytheists and wrongdoers)."
30. So the Nafs (self) of the other (latter
one) encouraged him and made fairseeming to him the murder
of his brother; he murdered him and became one of the losers.
31. Then Allâh sent a crow who scratched the
ground to show him to hide the dead body of his brother. He
(the murderer) said: "Woe to me! Am I not even able to be
as this crow and to hide the dead body of my brother?" Then
he became one of those who regretted.
32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of
Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder,
or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he
killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as
if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came
to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs,
even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits
(e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the
limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the
33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh
and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they
shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be
cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That
is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs
in the Hereafter.
34. Except for those who (having fled away and then)
came back (as Muslims) with repentance before they fall into your
power; in that case, know that Allâh is OftForgiving,
35. O you who believe! Do your duty to Allâh
and fear Him. Seek the means of approach to Him, and strive
hard in His Cause as much as you can. So that you may be
36. Verily, those who disbelieve, if they had all
that is in the earth, and as much again therewith to ransom themselves
thereby from the torment on the Day of Resurrection, it would
never be accepted of them, and theirs would be a painful torment.
37. They will long to get out of the Fire, but never
will they get out therefrom, and theirs will be a lasting torment.
38. Cut off (from the wrist joint) the (right) hand
of the thief, male or female, as a recompense for that which they
committed, a punishment by way of example from Allâh. And
Allâh is AllPowerful, AllWise.
39. But whosoever repents after his crime and does
righteous good deeds (by obeying Allâh), then verily, Allâh
will pardon him (accept his repentance). Verily, Allâh
is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
40. Know you not that to Allâh (Alone) belongs
the dominion of the heavens and the earth! He punishes whom He
wills and He forgives whom He wills. And Allâh is Able
to do all things.
41. O Messenger (Muhammad SAW)! Let not those who hurry to fall
into disbelief grieve you, of such who say: "We believe"
with their mouths but their hearts have no faith. And of
the Jews are men who listen much and eagerly to lies - listen
to others who have not come to you. They change the words
from their places; they say, "If you are given this, take
it, but if you are not given this, then beware!" And whomsoever
Allâh wants to put in AlFitnah [error, because
of his rejecting the Faith], you can do nothing for him against
Allâh. Those are the ones whose hearts Allâh
does not want to purify (from disbelief and hypocrisy); for them
there is a disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a great
42. (They like to) listen to falsehood, to devour
anything forbidden. So if they come to you (O Muhammad SAW), either judge between them, or
turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot
hurt you in the least. And if you judge, judge with justice
between them. Verily, Allâh loves those who act justly.
43. But how do they come to you for decision while
they have the Taurât (Torah), in which is the (plain) Decision
of Allâh; yet even after that, they turn away. For
they are not (really) believers.
44. Verily, We did send down the Taurât (Torah)
[to Mûsa (Moses)], therein was guidance and light, by which
the Prophets, who submitted themselves to Allâh's Will,
judged the Jews. And the rabbis and the priests [too judged
the Jews by the Taurât (Torah) after those Prophets] for
to them was entrusted the protection of Allâh's Book, and
they were witnesses thereto. Therefore fear not men but fear
Me (O Jews) and sell not My Verses for a miserable price. And
whosoever does not judge by what Allâh has revealed, such
are the Kâfirûn (i.e. disbelievers - of
a lesser degree as they do not act on Allâh's Laws).
45. And We ordained therein for them: "Life for
life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for
ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if
anyone remits the retaliation by way of charity, it shall be for
him an expiation. And whosoever does not judge by that which
Allâh has revealed, such are the Zâlimûn
(polytheists and wrongdoers - of a lesser degree).
46. And in their footsteps, We sent 'Iesa (Jesus),
son of Maryam (Mary), confirming the Taurât
(Torah) that had come before him, and We gave him the Injeel (Gospel),
in which was guidance and light and confirmation of the Taurât
(Torah) that had come before it, a guidance and an admonition
for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2).
47. Let the people of the Injeel (Gospel) judge by
what Allâh has revealed therein. And whosoever does
not judge by what Allâh has revealed (then) such (people)
are the Fâsiqûn (the rebellious i.e. disobedient
(of a lesser degree) to Allâh.
48. And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad SAW) the Book (this Qur'ân)
in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Mohayminan
(trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old Scriptures). So
judge between them by what Allâh has revealed, and follow
not their vain desires, diverging away from the truth that has
come to you. To each among you, We have prescribed a law
and a clear way. If Allâh willed, He would have made
you one nation, but that (He) may test you in what He has given
you; so strive as in a race in good deeds. The return of
you (all) is to Allâh; then He will inform you about that
in which you used to differ.
49. . And so judge (you O Muhammad SAW) between them by what Allâh
has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of
them lest they turn you (O Muhammad SAW)
far away from some of that which Allâh has sent down to
you. And if they turn away, then know that Allâh's
Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly,
most of men are Fâsiqûn (rebellious and disobedient
50. Do they then seek the judgement of (the Days of)
Ignorance? And who is better in judgement
than Allâh for a people who have firm Faith.
51. O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians
as Auliyâ' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.),
they are but Auliyâ' to one another. And if
any amongst you takes them as Auliyâ', then surely
he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people
who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers
52. And you see those in whose hearts there is a disease
(of hypocrisy), they hurry to their friendship, saying: "We
fear lest some misfortune of a disaster may befall us." Perhaps
Allâh may bring a victory or a decision according to His
Will. Then they will become regretful for what they have
been keeping as a secret in themselves.
53. And those who believe will say: "Are these
the men (hypocrites) who swore their strongest oaths by Allâh
that they were with you (Muslims)?" All that they did has
been in vain (because of their hypocrisy), and they have become
54. O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns
back from his religion (Islâm), Allâh will bring a
people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards
the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the
Way of Allâh, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That
is the Grace of Allâh which He bestows on whom He wills. And
Allâh is AllSufficient for His creatures' needs, AllKnower.
55. Verily, your Walî (Protector or Helper)
is Allâh, His Messenger, and the believers, - those who
perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât),
and give Zakât, and they bow down (submit themselves
with obedience to Allâh in prayer).
56. And whosoever takes Allâh, His Messenger,
and those who have believed, as Protectors, then the party of
Allâh will be the victorious.
57. O you who believe! Take not for Auliyâ'
(protectors and helpers) those who take your religion for
a mockery and fun from among those who received the Scripture
(Jews and Christians) before you, nor from among the disbelievers;
and fear Allâh if you indeed are true believers.
58. And when you proclaim the call for As-Salât
[call for the prayer (Adhân)], they take it (but)
as a mockery and fun; that is because they are a people who understand
59. Say: "O people of the Scripture (Jews and
Christians)! Do you criticize us for no other reason than that
we believe in Allâh, and in (the revelation) which has been
sent down to us and in that which has been sent down before (us),
and that most of you are Fâsiqûn [rebellious
and disobedient (to Allâh)]?"
60. Say (O Muhammad SAW
to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something
worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allâh: those
(Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allâh and His Wrath, those
of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who
worshipped Tâghût (false
deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in
the Hellfire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in
the life of this world)."
61. When they come to you, they say: "We believe."
But in fact they enter with (an intention of) disbelief and they
go out with the same. And Allâh knows all what they were
62. And you see many of them (Jews) hurrying for sin
and transgression, and eating illegal things [as bribes and Ribâ
(usury), etc.]. Evil indeed is that which they have been doing.
63. Why do not the rabbis and the religious learned
men forbid them from uttering sinful words and from eating illegal
things. Evil indeed is that which they have been performing.
64. The Jews say: "Allâh's Hand is tied
up (i.e. He does not give and spend of His Bounty)."
Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for what they uttered. Nay,
both His Hands are widely outstretched. He
spends (of His Bounty) as He wills. Verily, the Revelation
that has come to you from Allâh increases in most of them
their obstinate rebellion and disbelief. We have put enmity
and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection. Every
time they kindled the fire of war, Allâh extinguished it;
and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allâh
does not like the Mufsidûn (mischiefmakers).
65. And if only the people of the Scripture (Jews
and Christians) had believed (in Muhammad SAW) and warded off evil (sin, ascribing
partners to Allâh) and had become AlMuttaqûn
(the pious - see V.2:2) We would indeed have blotted out their
sins and admitted them to Gardens of pleasure (in Paradise).
66. And if only they had acted according to the Taurât
(Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and what has (now) been sent down
to them from their Lord (the Qur'ân), they would surely
have gotten provision from above them and from underneath their
feet. There are from among them people who are on the right
course (i.e. they act on the revelation and believe in Prophet
like 'Abdullâh bin Salâm ÑÖì
<> <>), but many
of them do evil deeds.
67. O Messenger (Muhammad SAW)! Proclaim (the Message) which
has been sent down to you from your Lord. And if you do not,
then you have not conveyed His Message. Allâh will protect
you from mankind. Verily, Allâh guides not the people
68. Say (O Muhammad SAW)
"O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! You have
nothing (as regards guidance) till you act according to the Taurât
(Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and what has (now) been sent down
to you from your Lord (the Qur'ân)." Verily, that which
has been sent down to you (Muhammad SAW)
from your Lord increases in many of them their obstinate rebellion
and disbelief. So be not sorrowful over the people who disbelieve.
69. Surely, those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh,
in His Messenger Muhammad SAW
and all that was revealed to him from Allâh), those who
are the Jews and the Sabians and the Christians, - whosoever believed
in Allâh and the Last Day, and worked righteousness, on
them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
70. Verily, We took the covenant of the Children of
Israel and sent them Messengers. Whenever there came to them a
Messenger with what they themselves desired not - a group of them
they called liars, and others among them they killed.
71. They thought there will be no Fitnah (trial
or punishment), so they became blind and deaf; after that Allâh
turned to them (with Forgiveness); yet again many of them became
blind and deaf. And Allâh is the AllSeer of what
72. Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allâh
is the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary)." But
the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: "O Children of Israel!
Worship Allâh, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever
sets up partners in worship with Allâh, then Allâh
has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And
for the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers)
there are no helpers.
73. Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allâh
is the third of the three (in a Trinity)." But there is no
ilâh (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped)
but One Ilâh (God -Allâh). And if they
cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall
the disbelievers among them.
74. Will they not repent to Allâh and ask His
Forgiveness? For Allâh is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
75. The Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary),
was no more than a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed
away before him. His mother [Maryam (Mary)] was a Siddiqah
[i.e. she believed in the words of Allâh and His
Books (see Verse 66:12)]. They both used to eat food (as
any other human being, while Allâh does not eat). Look
how We make the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses,
lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to them, yet look how
they are deluded away (from the truth).
76. Say (O Muhammad SAW
to mankind): "How do you worship besides Allâh something
which has no power either to harm or to benefit you? But it is
Allâh Who is the AllHearer, AllKnower."
77. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Exceed
not the limits in your religion (by believing in something) other
than the truth, and do not follow the vain desires of people who
went astray in times gone by, and who misled many, and strayed
(themselves) from the Right Path."
78. Those among the Children of Israel
who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawûd (David)
and 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because
they disobeyed (Allâh and the Messengers) and were ever
transgressing beyond bounds.
79. They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar
(wrong, evildoing, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.)
which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do.
80. You see many of them taking the disbelievers as
their Auliyâ' (protectors and helpers). Evil
indeed is that which their ownselves have sent forward before
them, for that (reason) Allâh's Wrath fell upon them and
in torment they will abide.
81. And had they believed in Allâh, and in the
Prophet (Muhammad SAW)
and in what has been revealed to him, never would they have taken
them (the disbelievers) as Auliyâ' (protectors and
helpers), but many of them are the Fâsiqûn (rebellious,
disobedient to Allâh).
82. Verily, you will find the strongest among men
in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are
Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), and you will find the
nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We
are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests
and monks, and they are not proud.
83. And when they (who call themselves Christians)
listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), you see their eyes overflowing
with tears because of the truth they have recognised. They
say: "Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses.
84. "And why should we not believe in Allâh
and in that which has come to us of the truth (Islâmic Monotheism)?
And we wish that our Lord will admit us (in Paradise on the Day
of Resurrection) along with the righteous people (Prophet Muhammad
SAW and his Companions ÑÖì
85. So because of what they said, Allâh rewarded
them Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise), they will
abide therein forever. Such is the reward of gooddoers.
86. But those who disbelieved and belied Our Ayât
(proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.),
they shall be the dwellers of the (Hell) Fire.
87. O you who believe! Make not unlawful the Taiyibât
(all that is good as regards foods, things, deeds, beliefs,
persons, etc.) which Allâh has made lawful to you, and transgress
not. Verily, Allâh does not like the transgressors.
88. And eat of the things which Allâh has provided
for you, lawful and good, and fear Allâh in Whom you believe.
89. Allâh will not punish you for what is uninentional
in your oaths, but He will punish you for your deliberate oaths;
for its expiation (a deliberate oath) feed ten Masâkin
(poor persons), on a scale of the average of that with which you
feed your own families; or clothe them; or manumit a slave. But
whosoever cannot afford (that), then he should fast for three
days. That is the expiation for the oaths when you have sworn. And
protect your oaths (i.e. do not swear much). Thus
Allâh make clear to you His Ayât (proofs, evidences,
verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) that you may be grateful.
90. O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic
drinks), gambling, AlAnsâb,
and AlAzlâm (arrows for seeking luck or decision)
are an abomination of Shaitân's (Satan) handiwork.
So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may
91. Shaitân (Satan) wants only to excite
enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks)
and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allâh
and from As-Salât (the prayer). So, will you
not then abstain?
92. And obey Allâh and the Messenger (Muhammad
SAW), and beware (of even coming near
to drinking or gambling or AlAnsâb, or AlAzlâm,
etc.) and fear Allâh. Then if you turn away, you should
know that it is Our Messenger's duty to convey (the Message) in
the clearest way.
93. Those who believe and do righteous good deeds,
there is no sin on them for what they ate (in the past), if they
fear Allâh (by keeping away from His forbidden things),
and believe and do righteous good deeds, and again fear Allâh
and believe, and once again fear Allâh and do good deeds
with Ihsân (perfection). And Allâh loves
94. O you who believe! Allâh will certainly
make a trial of you with something in (the matter of) the game
that is well within reach of your hands and your lances, that
Allâh may test who fears Him unseen. Then whoever transgresses
thereafter, for him there is a painful torment.
95. O you who believe! Kill not game while you are
in a state of Ihrâm for Hajj or 'Umrah
(pilgrimage), and whosoever of you kills it intentionally,
the penalty is an offering, brought to the Ka'bah, of an eatable
animal (i.e. sheep, goat, cow, etc.) equivalent to the one
he killed, as adjudged by two just men among you; or, for expiation,
he should feed Masâkin (poor persons), or its equivalent
in Saum (fasting), that he may taste the heaviness (punishment)
of his deed. Allâh has forgiven what is past, but whosoever
commits it again, Allâh will take retribution from him.
And Allâh is AllMighty, All-Able of Retribution.
96. Lawful to you is (the pursuit of) watergame
and its use for food - for the benefit of yourselves and those
who travel, but forbidden is (the pursuit of) landgame as
long as you are in a state of Ihrâm (for Hajj
or 'Umrah). And fear Allâh to Whom you shall
be gathered back.
97. Allâh has made the Ka'bah, the Sacred House,
an asylum of security and Hajj and 'Umrah (pilgrimage)
for mankind, and also the Sacred Month and the animals of offerings
and the garlanded (people or animals, etc. marked with the
garlands on their necks made from the outer part of the stem of
the Makkah trees for their security), that you may know that Allâh
has knowledge of all that is in the heavens and all that is in
the earth, and that Allâh is the AllKnower of each
98. Know that Allâh is Severe in punishment
and that Allâh is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
99. The Messenger's duty [i.e. Our Messenger
whom We have sent to you, (O mankind)] is but to convey (the Message). And
Allâh knows all that you reveal and all that you conceal.
100. Say (O Muhammad SAW):
"Not equal are AlKhabîth (all that is
evil and bad as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods,
etc.) and AtTaiyib (all that is good as regards things,
deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.), even though the abundance
of Al-Khabîth (evil) may please you." 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)], O men of understanding
in order that you may be successful.
101. O you who believe! Ask not about things which,
if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. But if you ask
about them while the Qur'ân is being revealed, they will
be made plain to you. Allâh has forgiven that, and
Allâh is OftForgiving, Most Forbearing.
102. Before you, a community asked such questions,
then on that account they became disbelievers.
103. Allâh has not instituted things like Bahîrah
(a shecamel whose milk was spared for the idols and
nobody was allowed to milk it) or a Sâ'ibah (a shecamel
let loose for free pasture for their false gods, e.g. idols,
etc., and nothing was allowed to be carried on it), or a Wasîlah
(a shecamel set free for idols because it has given
birth to a shecamel at its first delivery and then again
gives birth to a shecamel at its second delivery) or a Hâm
(a stallioncamel freed from work for their idols, after
it had finished a number of copulations assigned for it, all these
animals were liberated in honour of idols as practised by pagan
Arabs in the preIslâmic period). But those who
disbelieve invent lies against Allâh, and most of them have
104. And when it is said to them: "Come to what
Allâh has revealed and unto the Messenger (Muhammad SAW for the verdict of that which
you have made unlawful)." They say: "Enough for us is
that which we found our fathers following," even though their
fathers had no knowledge whatsoever and no guidance.
105. O you who believe! Take care of your ownselves,
[do righteous deeds, 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)]. If
you follow the right guidance and enjoin what is right (Islâmic
Monotheism and all that Islâm orders one to do) and forbid
what is wrong (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islâm
has forbidden) no hurt can come to you from those who are in error.
The return of you all is to Allâh, then He will inform you
about (all) that which you used to do.
106. O you who believe! When death approaches any
of you, and you make a bequest, then take the testimony of two
just men of your own folk or two others from outside, if you are
travelling through the land and the calamity of death befalls
you. Detain them both after As-Salât (the prayer),
(then) if you are in doubt (about their truthfulness), let them
both swear by Allâh (saying): "We wish not for any
worldly gain in this, even though he (the beneficiary) be our
near relative. We shall not hide Testimony of Allâh,
for then indeed we should be of the sinful."
107. If then it gets known that these two had been
guilty of sin, let two others stand forth in their places, nearest
in kin from among those who claim a lawful right. Let them
swear by Allâh (saying): "We affirm that our testimony
is truer than that of both of them, and that we have not trespassed
(the truth), for then indeed we should be of the wrongdoers."
108. That should make it closer (to the fact) that
their testimony would be in its true nature and shape (and thus
accepted), or else they would fear that (other) oaths would be
admitted after their oaths. And fear Allâh and listen
( with obedience to Him). And Allâh guides not the
people who are Al-Fâsiqûn (the rebellious and
109. On the Day when Allâh will gather the Messengers
together and say to them: "What was the response you received
(from men to your teaching)? They will say: "We have no knowledge,
verily, only You are the AllKnower of all that is hidden
(or unseen, etc.)."
110. (Remember) when Allâh will say (on the
Day of Resurrection). "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam
(Mary)! Remember My Favour to you and to your mother when I supported
you with RûhulQudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]
so that you spoke to the people in the cradle
and in maturity; and when I taught you writing, AlHikmah
(the power of understanding), the Taurât (Torah) and
the Injeel (Gospel); and when you made out of the clay, as it
were, the figure of a bird, by My Permission, and you breathed
into it, and it became a bird by My Permission, and you healed
those born blind, and the lepers by My Permission, and when you
brought forth the dead by My Permission; and when I restrained
the Children of Israel from you (when they resolved to kill you)
since you came unto them with clear proofs, and the disbelievers
among them said: 'This is nothing but evident magic.' "
111. And when I (Allâh) put in the hearts of
Al-Hawârîeen (the disciples) [of 'Iesa (Jesus)]
to believe in Me and My Messenger, they said: "We believe. And
bear witness that we are Muslims."
112. (Remember) when Al-Hawârîûn
(the disciples) said: "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)!
Can your Lord send down to us a table spread (with food) from
heaven?" 'Iesa (Jesus) said: "Fear Allâh, if you
are indeed believers."
113. They said: "We wish to eat thereof and to
be stronger in Faith, and to know that you have indeed told us
the truth and that we ourselves be its witnesses."
114. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: "O
Allâh, our Lord! Send us from heaven a table spread (with
food) that there may be for us - for the first and the last of
us - a festival and a sign from You; and provide us sustenance,
for You are the Best of sustainers."
115. Allâh said: "I am going to send it
down unto you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, then
I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted
on anyone among (all) the 'Alamîn (mankind and jinns)."
116. And (remember) when Allâh will say (on
the Day of Resurrection): "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam
(Mary)! Did you say unto men: 'Worship me and my mother as two
gods besides Allâh?' " He will say: "Glory
be to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had
I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You
know what is in my innerself though I do not know what is
in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the AllKnower of all
that is hidden and unseen.
117. "Never did I say to them aught except what
You (Allâh) did command me to say: 'Worship Allâh,
my Lord and your Lord.' And I was a witness over them while I
dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up, You were the Watcher
over them, and You are a Witness to all things. (This is
a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole
118. "If You punish them, they are Your slaves,
and if You forgive them, verily You, only You are the AllMighty,
119. Allâh will say: "This is a Day on
which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are Gardens
under which rivers flow (in Paradise) - they shall abide therein
forever. Allâh is pleased with them and they with Him. That
is the great success (Paradise).
120. To Allâh belongs the dominion of the heavens
and the earth and all that is therein, and He is Able to do all
