بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ يٰأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ اتَّقِ اللَّهَ وَلا تُطِعِ الكٰفِرينَ وَالمُنٰفِقينَ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كانَ عَليمًا حَكيمًا(1)
O Herald of the Hidden (the Prophet), continue to fear Allah and never listen to the disbelievers and the hypocrites; indeed Allah is All Knowing, Wise.(1)
وَاتَّبِع ما يوحىٰ إِلَيكَ مِن رَبِّكَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كانَ بِما تَعمَلونَ خَبيرًا(2)
And keep following what is sent down to you from your Lord; O people! Indeed Allah is seeing your deeds.(2)
وَتَوَكَّل عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ وَكَفىٰ بِاللَّهِ وَكيلًا(3)
And trust Allah; and Allah is Sufficient as a Trustee.(3)
ما جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِرَجُلٍ مِن قَلبَينِ فى جَوفِهِ ۚ وَما جَعَلَ أَزوٰجَكُمُ الّٰـٔى تُظٰهِرونَ مِنهُنَّ أُمَّهٰتِكُم ۚ وَما جَعَلَ أَدعِياءَكُم أَبناءَكُم ۚ ذٰلِكُم قَولُكُم بِأَفوٰهِكُم ۖ وَاللَّهُ يَقولُ الحَقَّ وَهُوَ يَهدِى السَّبيلَ(4)
Allah has not kept two hearts in the body of any man; nor has He made them your mothers those wives of yours, whom you declare to be your mothers; nor has He made them your sons, whom you have adopted; this is the statement of your mouths; and Allah proclaims the truth and it is He Who shows the path.(4)
ادعوهُم لِءابائِهِم هُوَ أَقسَطُ عِندَ اللَّهِ ۚ فَإِن لَم تَعلَموا ءاباءَهُم فَإِخوٰنُكُم فِى الدّينِ وَمَوٰليكُم ۚ وَلَيسَ عَلَيكُم جُناحٌ فيما أَخطَأتُم بِهِ وَلٰكِن ما تَعَمَّدَت قُلوبُكُم ۚ وَكانَ اللَّهُ غَفورًا رَحيمًا(5)
Call them with their fathers’ names – this is more suitable in the sight of Allah; and if you do not know their fathers, then they are your brothers in the faith, (and your cousins as humans) and your friends; and there is no sin upon you for what you did unknowingly in the past – however it is a sin what you do with your heart’s intention; and Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.(5)
النَّبِىُّ أَولىٰ بِالمُؤمِنينَ مِن أَنفُسِهِم ۖ وَأَزوٰجُهُ أُمَّهٰتُهُم ۗ وَأُولُوا الأَرحامِ بَعضُهُم أَولىٰ بِبَعضٍ فى كِتٰبِ اللَّهِ مِنَ المُؤمِنينَ وَالمُهٰجِرينَ إِلّا أَن تَفعَلوا إِلىٰ أَولِيائِكُم مَعروفًا ۚ كانَ ذٰلِكَ فِى الكِتٰبِ مَسطورًا(6)
The Prophet is closer to the Muslims than their own lives, and his wives are their mothers; and the relatives are closer to each other in the Book of Allah, than other Muslims and immigrants, except that you may be kind towards your friends; this is written in the Book.(6)
وَإِذ أَخَذنا مِنَ النَّبِيّۦنَ ميثٰقَهُم وَمِنكَ وَمِن نوحٍ وَإِبرٰهيمَ وَموسىٰ وَعيسَى ابنِ مَريَمَ ۖ وَأَخَذنا مِنهُم ميثٰقًا غَليظًا(7)
And remember O dear Prophet (Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) when We took a covenant from the Prophets – and from you – and from Nooh, and Ibrahim, and Moosa, and Eisa the son of Maryam; and We took a firm covenant from them.(7)
لِيَسـَٔلَ الصّٰدِقينَ عَن صِدقِهِم ۚ وَأَعَدَّ لِلكٰفِرينَ عَذابًا أَليمًا(8)
So that He may question the truthful regarding their truth; and He has kept prepared a painful punishment for the disbelievers.(8)
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنُوا اذكُروا نِعمَةَ اللَّهِ عَلَيكُم إِذ جاءَتكُم جُنودٌ فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم ريحًا وَجُنودًا لَم تَرَوها ۚ وَكانَ اللَّهُ بِما تَعمَلونَ بَصيرًا(9)
O People who believe! Remember the favour of Allah upon you when some armies came against you, so We sent against them a windstorm and the armies you could not see; and Allah sees your deeds.(9)
إِذ جاءوكُم مِن فَوقِكُم وَمِن أَسفَلَ مِنكُم وَإِذ زاغَتِ الأَبصٰرُ وَبَلَغَتِ القُلوبُ الحَناجِرَ وَتَظُنّونَ بِاللَّهِ الظُّنونا۠(10)
When the disbelievers came upon you from above you and from below you, and when the eyes became fixed in stare and the hearts came up to the throats, and you were imagining matters regarding Allah.(10)
هُنالِكَ ابتُلِىَ المُؤمِنونَ وَزُلزِلوا زِلزالًا شَديدًا(11)
That proved be the testing ground for the Muslims, and they were subjected to a severe shake.(11)
وَإِذ يَقولُ المُنٰفِقونَ وَالَّذينَ فى قُلوبِهِم مَرَضٌ ما وَعَدَنَا اللَّهُ وَرَسولُهُ إِلّا غُرورًا(12)
And when the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, began saying, “Allah and His Noble Messenger have not given us a promise except one of deceit.”(12)
وَإِذ قالَت طائِفَةٌ مِنهُم يٰأَهلَ يَثرِبَ لا مُقامَ لَكُم فَارجِعوا ۚ وَيَستَـٔذِنُ فَريقٌ مِنهُمُ النَّبِىَّ يَقولونَ إِنَّ بُيوتَنا عَورَةٌ وَما هِىَ بِعَورَةٍ ۖ إِن يُريدونَ إِلّا فِرارًا(13)
And when a group among said, “O people of Medinah! This is no place of stay for you, therefore go back to your homes”; and a group among them sought exemption from the Prophet by saying, “Our homes are unprotected” whereas their homes were not unprotected; they willed nothing except to flee.(13)
وَلَو دُخِلَت عَلَيهِم مِن أَقطارِها ثُمَّ سُئِلُوا الفِتنَةَ لَءاتَوها وَما تَلَبَّثوا بِها إِلّا يَسيرًا(14)
And if the armies had come upon them from the outskirts of Medinah and demanded disbelief from them, they would certainly have given them their demand and would not have hesitated in it except a little.(14)
وَلَقَد كانوا عٰهَدُوا اللَّهَ مِن قَبلُ لا يُوَلّونَ الأَدبٰرَ ۚ وَكانَ عَهدُ اللَّهِ مَسـٔولًا(15)
And indeed before this they had agreed with Allah that they would not turn their backs; and the covenant of Allah will be questioned about.(15)
قُل لَن يَنفَعَكُمُ الفِرارُ إِن فَرَرتُم مِنَ المَوتِ أَوِ القَتلِ وَإِذًا لا تُمَتَّعونَ إِلّا قَليلًا(16)
Proclaim, “Fleeing will never benefit you if you flee from death or killing, and even then you will not be given the usage of this world except a little.”(16)
قُل مَن ذَا الَّذى يَعصِمُكُم مِنَ اللَّهِ إِن أَرادَ بِكُم سوءًا أَو أَرادَ بِكُم رَحمَةً ۚ وَلا يَجِدونَ لَهُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ وَلِيًّا وَلا نَصيرًا(17)
Say, “Who is he who can avert the command of Allah from you, if He wills harm for you or wills to have mercy upon you?” And other than Allah, they will not find any friend or supporter.(17)
۞ قَد يَعلَمُ اللَّهُ المُعَوِّقينَ مِنكُم وَالقائِلينَ لِإِخوٰنِهِم هَلُمَّ إِلَينا ۖ وَلا يَأتونَ البَأسَ إِلّا قَليلًا(18)
Indeed Allah knows those among you who prevent others from the holy war, and those who say to their brothers, “Come towards us”; and they do not come to fight, except a few.(18)
أَشِحَّةً عَلَيكُم ۖ فَإِذا جاءَ الخَوفُ رَأَيتَهُم يَنظُرونَ إِلَيكَ تَدورُ أَعيُنُهُم كَالَّذى يُغشىٰ عَلَيهِ مِنَ المَوتِ ۖ فَإِذا ذَهَبَ الخَوفُ سَلَقوكُم بِأَلسِنَةٍ حِدادٍ أَشِحَّةً عَلَى الخَيرِ ۚ أُولٰئِكَ لَم يُؤمِنوا فَأَحبَطَ اللَّهُ أَعمٰلَهُم ۚ وَكانَ ذٰلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسيرًا(19)
They reduce the help towards you; so when a fearful time comes, you will observe them looking at you with eyes rolling like one enveloped by death; then when the time of fear is over, they begin slandering you with sharp tongues in their greed for the war booty; they have not accepted faith, therefore Allah has nullified their deeds; and this is easy for Allah.(19)
يَحسَبونَ الأَحزابَ لَم يَذهَبوا ۖ وَإِن يَأتِ الأَحزابُ يَوَدّوا لَو أَنَّهُم بادونَ فِى الأَعرابِ يَسـَٔلونَ عَن أَنبائِكُم ۖ وَلَو كانوا فيكُم ما قٰتَلوا إِلّا قَليلًا(20)
They assume that the armies of the disbelievers have not gone away; and were the armies to come again, their wish would be to go out to the villages seeking information about you; and were they to stay among you even then they would not fight, except a few.(20)
لَقَد كانَ لَكُم فى رَسولِ اللَّهِ أُسوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِمَن كانَ يَرجُوا اللَّهَ وَاليَومَ الءاخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثيرًا(21)
Indeed following the Noble Messenger of Allah is better for you – for one who is confident of Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much.(21)
وَلَمّا رَءَا المُؤمِنونَ الأَحزابَ قالوا هٰذا ما وَعَدَنَا اللَّهُ وَرَسولُهُ وَصَدَقَ اللَّهُ وَرَسولُهُ ۚ وَما زادَهُم إِلّا إيمٰنًا وَتَسليمًا(22)
And when the Muslims saw the armies, they said, “This is what Allah and His Noble Messenger promised us, and Allah and His Noble Messenger have spoken the truth”; and it did not increase anything for them but faith and acceptance of Allah’s will.(22)
مِنَ المُؤمِنينَ رِجالٌ صَدَقوا ما عٰهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيهِ ۖ فَمِنهُم مَن قَضىٰ نَحبَهُ وَمِنهُم مَن يَنتَظِرُ ۖ وَما بَدَّلوا تَبديلًا(23)
Among the Muslims are the men who have proved true what they had covenanted with Allah; so among them is one who has already fulfilled his vow, and among them is one still waiting; and they have not changed a bit.(23)
لِيَجزِىَ اللَّهُ الصّٰدِقينَ بِصِدقِهِم وَيُعَذِّبَ المُنٰفِقينَ إِن شاءَ أَو يَتوبَ عَلَيهِم ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كانَ غَفورًا رَحيمًا(24)
In order that Allah may reward the truthful for their truthfulness, and punish the hypocrites if He wills, or give them repentance; indeed Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.(24)
وَرَدَّ اللَّهُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا بِغَيظِهِم لَم يَنالوا خَيرًا ۚ وَكَفَى اللَّهُ المُؤمِنينَ القِتالَ ۚ وَكانَ اللَّهُ قَوِيًّا عَزيزًا(25)
And Allah turned back the disbelievers in their hearts’ jealousy, gaining no good; and Allah sufficed the Muslims in their fight; and Allah is Almighty, Most Honourable.(25)
وَأَنزَلَ الَّذينَ ظٰهَروهُم مِن أَهلِ الكِتٰبِ مِن صَياصيهِم وَقَذَفَ فى قُلوبِهِمُ الرُّعبَ فَريقًا تَقتُلونَ وَتَأسِرونَ فَريقًا(26)
And He brought down from their forts, the People given the Book(s) who had supported them, and instilled awe into their hearts – you slay a group among them and another group you make captive.(26)
وَأَورَثَكُم أَرضَهُم وَدِيٰرَهُم وَأَموٰلَهُم وَأَرضًا لَم تَطَـٔوها ۚ وَكانَ اللَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرًا(27)
And He bequeathed you their lands and their houses and their wealth, and land that you have not yet set foot upon; and Allah is Able to do all things.(27)
يٰأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ قُل لِأَزوٰجِكَ إِن كُنتُنَّ تُرِدنَ الحَيوٰةَ الدُّنيا وَزينَتَها فَتَعالَينَ أُمَتِّعكُنَّ وَأُسَرِّحكُنَّ سَراحًا جَميلًا(28)
O Herald of the Hidden! Say to your wives, “If you desire the worldly life and its adornment – therefore come, I shall give you wealth and a befitting release!”(28)
وَإِن كُنتُنَّ تُرِدنَ اللَّهَ وَرَسولَهُ وَالدّارَ الءاخِرَةَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ أَعَدَّ لِلمُحسِنٰتِ مِنكُنَّ أَجرًا عَظيمًا(29)
“And if you desire Allah and His Noble Messenger and the abode of the Hereafter – then indeed Allah has kept prepared an immense reward for the virtuous among you.”(29)
يٰنِساءَ النَّبِىِّ مَن يَأتِ مِنكُنَّ بِفٰحِشَةٍ مُبَيِّنَةٍ يُضٰعَف لَهَا العَذابُ ضِعفَينِ ۚ وَكانَ ذٰلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسيرًا(30)
O the wives of the Prophet! If any among you dares to commit an act contrary to decency, for her will be double the punishment of others; and this is easy for Allah.(30)
۞ وَمَن يَقنُت مِنكُنَّ لِلَّهِ وَرَسولِهِ وَتَعمَل صٰلِحًا نُؤتِها أَجرَها مَرَّتَينِ وَأَعتَدنا لَها رِزقًا كَريمًا(31)
And whoever among you remains obedient towards Allah and His Noble Messenger and does good deeds – We shall give her double the reward of others, and have kept prepared for her an honourable sustenance.(31)
يٰنِساءَ النَّبِىِّ لَستُنَّ كَأَحَدٍ مِنَ النِّساءِ ۚ إِنِ اتَّقَيتُنَّ فَلا تَخضَعنَ بِالقَولِ فَيَطمَعَ الَّذى فى قَلبِهِ مَرَضٌ وَقُلنَ قَولًا مَعروفًا(32)
O the wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women – if you really fear Allah, do not speak softly lest the one in whose heart is a disease have any inclination, and speak fairly.(32)
وَقَرنَ فى بُيوتِكُنَّ وَلا تَبَرَّجنَ تَبَرُّجَ الجٰهِلِيَّةِ الأولىٰ ۖ وَأَقِمنَ الصَّلوٰةَ وَءاتينَ الزَّكوٰةَ وَأَطِعنَ اللَّهَ وَرَسولَهُ ۚ إِنَّما يُريدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجسَ أَهلَ البَيتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُم تَطهيرًا(33)
And remain in your houses and do not unveil yourselves like the unveiling prevalent in the times of ignorance, and keep the prayer established, and pay the charity, and obey Allah and His Noble Messenger; Allah only wills to remove all impurity from you, O the People of the Household, and by cleansing you make you utterly pure. (*The Holy Prophet’s household.)(33)
وَاذكُرنَ ما يُتلىٰ فى بُيوتِكُنَّ مِن ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ وَالحِكمَةِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كانَ لَطيفًا خَبيرًا(34)
And remember what is recited in your houses, from Allah’s verses and wisdom*; indeed Allah knows the minutest things, is All Aware. (The Holy Qur’an and the sayings- hadith – of the Holy Prophet.)(34)
إِنَّ المُسلِمينَ وَالمُسلِمٰتِ وَالمُؤمِنينَ وَالمُؤمِنٰتِ وَالقٰنِتينَ وَالقٰنِتٰتِ وَالصّٰدِقينَ وَالصّٰدِقٰتِ وَالصّٰبِرينَ وَالصّٰبِرٰتِ وَالخٰشِعينَ وَالخٰشِعٰتِ وَالمُتَصَدِّقينَ وَالمُتَصَدِّقٰتِ وَالصّٰئِمينَ وَالصّٰئِمٰتِ وَالحٰفِظينَ فُروجَهُم وَالحٰفِظٰتِ وَالذّٰكِرينَ اللَّهَ كَثيرًا وَالذّٰكِرٰتِ أَعَدَّ اللَّهُ لَهُم مَغفِرَةً وَأَجرًا عَظيمًا(35)
Indeed the Muslim men and Muslim women, and the believing men and the believing women, and the men who obey and the women who obey, and the truthful men and the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women, and the humble men and the humble women, and charitable men and the charitable women, and the fasting men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their chastity and the women who guard their chastity, and the men who profusely remember Allah and the women who profusely remember Allah – for all of them, Allah has kept prepared forgiveness and an immense reward.(35)
وَما كانَ لِمُؤمِنٍ وَلا مُؤمِنَةٍ إِذا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسولُهُ أَمرًا أَن يَكونَ لَهُمُ الخِيَرَةُ مِن أَمرِهِم ۗ وَمَن يَعصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسولَهُ فَقَد ضَلَّ ضَلٰلًا مُبينًا(36)
And no Muslim man or woman has any right in the affair, when Allah and His Noble Messenger have decreed a command regarding it; and whoever does not obey the command of Allah and His Noble Messenger, has indeed clearly gone very astray.(36)
وَإِذ تَقولُ لِلَّذى أَنعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيهِ وَأَنعَمتَ عَلَيهِ أَمسِك عَلَيكَ زَوجَكَ وَاتَّقِ اللَّهَ وَتُخفى فى نَفسِكَ مَا اللَّهُ مُبديهِ وَتَخشَى النّاسَ وَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخشىٰهُ ۖ فَلَمّا قَضىٰ زَيدٌ مِنها وَطَرًا زَوَّجنٰكَها لِكَى لا يَكونَ عَلَى المُؤمِنينَ حَرَجٌ فى أَزوٰجِ أَدعِيائِهِم إِذا قَضَوا مِنهُنَّ وَطَرًا ۚ وَكانَ أَمرُ اللَّهِ مَفعولًا(37)
And O dear Prophet, remember when you said to him upon whom Allah has bestowed favour and you had bestowed favour, “Keep your wife with you, and fear Allah”, and you kept in your heart what Allah willed to make known, and you feared criticism from the people; and Allah has more right that you should fear Him; so when Zaid became unconcerned with her, We gave her to you in marriage, so that there may be no sin upon believers in respect of the wives of their adopted sons when they have become unconcerned with them; and the command of Allah must be carried out.(37)
ما كانَ عَلَى النَّبِىِّ مِن حَرَجٍ فيما فَرَضَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ۖ سُنَّةَ اللَّهِ فِى الَّذينَ خَلَوا مِن قَبلُ ۚ وَكانَ أَمرُ اللَّهِ قَدَرًا مَقدورًا(38)
There is no blame upon the Prophet regarding the matter that Allah has decreed for him; it has been Allah’s tradition in those who passed before; and the command of Allah is a certain destiny.(38)
الَّذينَ يُبَلِّغونَ رِسٰلٰتِ اللَّهِ وَيَخشَونَهُ وَلا يَخشَونَ أَحَدًا إِلَّا اللَّهَ ۗ وَكَفىٰ بِاللَّهِ حَسيبًا(39)
Those who deliver the messages of Allah and fear Him, and do not fear anyone except Allah; and Allah is Sufficient to take account.(39)
ما كانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبا أَحَدٍ مِن رِجالِكُم وَلٰكِن رَسولَ اللَّهِ وَخاتَمَ النَّبِيّۦنَ ۗ وَكانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيءٍ عَليمًا(40)
Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) is not the father of any man among you – but he is the Noble Messenger of Allah and the Last of the Prophets*; and Allah knows all things. (* Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him – is the Last Prophet. There can be no new Prophet after him).(40)
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنُوا اذكُرُوا اللَّهَ ذِكرًا كَثيرًا(41)
O People who Believe! Remember Allah profusely.(41)
وَسَبِّحوهُ بُكرَةً وَأَصيلًا(42)
And proclaim His Purity, morning and evening.(42)
هُوَ الَّذى يُصَلّى عَلَيكُم وَمَلٰئِكَتُهُ لِيُخرِجَكُم مِنَ الظُّلُمٰتِ إِلَى النّورِ ۚ وَكانَ بِالمُؤمِنينَ رَحيمًا(43)
It is He Who sends blessings upon you*, and so do His angels, so that He may bring you out from darkness into light; and He is Most Merciful upon the Muslims. (* Upon the companions of the Holy Prophet).(43)
تَحِيَّتُهُم يَومَ يَلقَونَهُ سَلٰمٌ ۚ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُم أَجرًا كَريمًا(44)
For them the salutation upon their meeting* is “Peace”; and an honourable reward is kept prepared for them. (* Upon death / while entering Paradise / meeting with Allah).(44)
يٰأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ إِنّا أَرسَلنٰكَ شٰهِدًا وَمُبَشِّرًا وَنَذيرًا(45)
O Herald of the Hidden! We have indeed sent you as an observing present witness and a Herald of glad tidings and warning.(45)
وَداعِيًا إِلَى اللَّهِ بِإِذنِهِ وَسِراجًا مُنيرًا(46)
And as a caller towards Allah, by His command, and as a sun that enlightens. (The Holy Prophet is a light from Allah.)(46)
وَبَشِّرِ المُؤمِنينَ بِأَنَّ لَهُم مِنَ اللَّهِ فَضلًا كَبيرًا(47)
And give glad tidings to the believers that for them is Allah’s extreme munificence.(47)
وَلا تُطِعِ الكٰفِرينَ وَالمُنٰفِقينَ وَدَع أَذىٰهُم وَتَوَكَّل عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ وَكَفىٰ بِاللَّهِ وَكيلًا(48)
And do not please the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and overlook the pain they cause and rely upon Allah; and Allah suffices as a Trustee.(48)
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا إِذا نَكَحتُمُ المُؤمِنٰتِ ثُمَّ طَلَّقتُموهُنَّ مِن قَبلِ أَن تَمَسّوهُنَّ فَما لَكُم عَلَيهِنَّ مِن عِدَّةٍ تَعتَدّونَها ۖ فَمَتِّعوهُنَّ وَسَرِّحوهُنَّ سَراحًا جَميلًا(49)
O People who Believe! If you marry Muslim women and divorce them without having touched them, so for you there is no waiting period for the women, which you may count; therefore give them some benefit and release them with a proper release.(49)
يٰأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ إِنّا أَحلَلنا لَكَ أَزوٰجَكَ الّٰتى ءاتَيتَ أُجورَهُنَّ وَما مَلَكَت يَمينُكَ مِمّا أَفاءَ اللَّهُ عَلَيكَ وَبَناتِ عَمِّكَ وَبَناتِ عَمّٰتِكَ وَبَناتِ خالِكَ وَبَناتِ خٰلٰتِكَ الّٰتى هاجَرنَ مَعَكَ وَامرَأَةً مُؤمِنَةً إِن وَهَبَت نَفسَها لِلنَّبِىِّ إِن أَرادَ النَّبِىُّ أَن يَستَنكِحَها خالِصَةً لَكَ مِن دونِ المُؤمِنينَ ۗ قَد عَلِمنا ما فَرَضنا عَلَيهِم فى أَزوٰجِهِم وَما مَلَكَت أَيمٰنُهُم لِكَيلا يَكونَ عَلَيكَ حَرَجٌ ۗ وَكانَ اللَّهُ غَفورًا رَحيمًا(50)
O Herald of the Hidden! We have indeed made lawful for you the wives to whom you have paid their bridal money, and the bondwomen you possess whom Allah gave you as war booty, and the daughters of your paternal uncles, and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters of your maternal uncles, and the daughters of your maternal aunts, those who migrated with you; and the believing woman if she gifts her life to the Prophet, if the Prophet desires to take her in marriage; this is exclusively for you, not for your followers; We indeed know what We have enjoined upon the Muslims concerning their wives and the bondwomen they possess – this exclusivity for you is so that you may not have constraints; and Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.(50)
۞ تُرجى مَن تَشاءُ مِنهُنَّ وَتُـٔوى إِلَيكَ مَن تَشاءُ ۖ وَمَنِ ابتَغَيتَ مِمَّن عَزَلتَ فَلا جُناحَ عَلَيكَ ۚ ذٰلِكَ أَدنىٰ أَن تَقَرَّ أَعيُنُهُنَّ وَلا يَحزَنَّ وَيَرضَينَ بِما ءاتَيتَهُنَّ كُلُّهُنَّ ۚ وَاللَّهُ يَعلَمُ ما فى قُلوبِكُم ۚ وَكانَ اللَّهُ عَليمًا حَليمًا(51)
Put back in the order whom you wish among them and give your proximity to whomever you wish; and if you incline towards one whom you had set aside, there is no sin upon you in it; this command is closer to their eyes remaining soothed and not grieving, and all of them remaining happy with whatever you give them; and Allah knows what is in the hearts of you all; and Allah is All Knowing, Most Forbearing.(51)
لا يَحِلُّ لَكَ النِّساءُ مِن بَعدُ وَلا أَن تَبَدَّلَ بِهِنَّ مِن أَزوٰجٍ وَلَو أَعجَبَكَ حُسنُهُنَّ إِلّا ما مَلَكَت يَمينُكَ ۗ وَكانَ اللَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ رَقيبًا(52)
Other women are not permitted for you after these, nor that you change them for other wives even if their beauty pleases you except the bondwomen whom you possess; and Allah is the Guardian over all things.(52)
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا لا تَدخُلوا بُيوتَ النَّبِىِّ إِلّا أَن يُؤذَنَ لَكُم إِلىٰ طَعامٍ غَيرَ نٰظِرينَ إِنىٰهُ وَلٰكِن إِذا دُعيتُم فَادخُلوا فَإِذا طَعِمتُم فَانتَشِروا وَلا مُستَـٔنِسينَ لِحَديثٍ ۚ إِنَّ ذٰلِكُم كانَ يُؤذِى النَّبِىَّ فَيَستَحيۦ مِنكُم ۖ وَاللَّهُ لا يَستَحيۦ مِنَ الحَقِّ ۚ وَإِذا سَأَلتُموهُنَّ مَتٰعًا فَسـَٔلوهُنَّ مِن وَراءِ حِجابٍ ۚ ذٰلِكُم أَطهَرُ لِقُلوبِكُم وَقُلوبِهِنَّ ۚ وَما كانَ لَكُم أَن تُؤذوا رَسولَ اللَّهِ وَلا أَن تَنكِحوا أَزوٰجَهُ مِن بَعدِهِ أَبَدًا ۚ إِنَّ ذٰلِكُم كانَ عِندَ اللَّهِ عَظيمًا(53)
O People who Believe! Do not enter the houses of the Prophet without permission, as when called for a meal but not to linger around waiting for it – and if you are invited then certainly present yourself and when you have eaten, disperse – not staying around delighting in conversation; indeed that was causing harassment to the Prophet, and he was having regard for you; and Allah does not shy in proclaiming the truth; and when you ask the wives of the Prophet for anything to use, ask for it from behind a curtain; this is purer for your hearts and for their hearts; and you have no right to trouble the Noble Messenger of Allah, nor ever marry any of his wives after him; indeed that is a very severe matter in the sight of Allah. (To honour the Holy Prophet – peace and blessings be upon him – is part of faith. To disrespect him is blasphemy.)(53)
إِن تُبدوا شَيـًٔا أَو تُخفوهُ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كانَ بِكُلِّ شَيءٍ عَليمًا(54)
Whether you disclose a thing or keep it hidden – then indeed Allah knows all things.(54)
لا جُناحَ عَلَيهِنَّ فى ءابائِهِنَّ وَلا أَبنائِهِنَّ وَلا إِخوٰنِهِنَّ وَلا أَبناءِ إِخوٰنِهِنَّ وَلا أَبناءِ أَخَوٰتِهِنَّ وَلا نِسائِهِنَّ وَلا ما مَلَكَت أَيمٰنُهُنَّ ۗ وَاتَّقينَ اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كانَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ شَهيدًا(55)
There is no sin upon your wives in (dealing with) their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons or women of their own religion, or their bondwomen; and O women, keep fearing Allah; indeed all things are present in front of Allah.(55)
إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلٰئِكَتَهُ يُصَلّونَ عَلَى النَّبِىِّ ۚ يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا صَلّوا عَلَيهِ وَسَلِّموا تَسليمًا(56)
Indeed Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet; O People who Believe! Send blessings and abundant salutations upon him. (Everlasting peace and unlimited blessings be upon the Holy Prophet Mohammed.)(56)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ يُؤذونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسولَهُ لَعَنَهُمُ اللَّهُ فِى الدُّنيا وَالءاخِرَةِ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُم عَذابًا مُهينًا(57)
Indeed those who trouble Allah and His Noble Messenger – upon them is Allah’s curse in the world and in the Hereafter, and Allah has kept prepared a disgraceful punishment for them. (To disrespect / trouble the Holy Prophet – peace and blessings be upon him – is blasphemy.)(57)
وَالَّذينَ يُؤذونَ المُؤمِنينَ وَالمُؤمِنٰتِ بِغَيرِ مَا اكتَسَبوا فَقَدِ احتَمَلوا بُهتٰنًا وَإِثمًا مُبينًا(58)
And those who unnecessarily harass Muslim men and women, have burdened themselves with slander and open sin.(58)
يٰأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ قُل لِأَزوٰجِكَ وَبَناتِكَ وَنِساءِ المُؤمِنينَ يُدنينَ عَلَيهِنَّ مِن جَلٰبيبِهِنَّ ۚ ذٰلِكَ أَدنىٰ أَن يُعرَفنَ فَلا يُؤذَينَ ۗ وَكانَ اللَّهُ غَفورًا رَحيمًا(59)
O Prophet! Command your wives and your daughters and the women of the Muslims to cover their faces with a part of their cloaks; this is closer to their being recognised and not being harassed; and Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful. (It is incumbent upon women to cover themselves properly.)(59)
۞ لَئِن لَم يَنتَهِ المُنٰفِقونَ وَالَّذينَ فى قُلوبِهِم مَرَضٌ وَالمُرجِفونَ فِى المَدينَةِ لَنُغرِيَنَّكَ بِهِم ثُمَّ لا يُجاوِرونَكَ فيها إِلّا قَليلًا(60)
If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the rumour mongers in Medinah do not desist, We shall then surely impel you against them, so then they will not remain your neighbours in Medinah except for a few days.(60)
مَلعونينَ ۖ أَينَما ثُقِفوا أُخِذوا وَقُتِّلوا تَقتيلًا(61)
Accursed – to be caught wherever found and to be slain thoroughly.(61)
سُنَّةَ اللَّهِ فِى الَّذينَ خَلَوا مِن قَبلُ ۖ وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ اللَّهِ تَبديلًا(62)
The tradition of Allah prevalent among those who passed away before; and you will never find the traditions of Allah changing.(62)
يَسـَٔلُكَ النّاسُ عَنِ السّاعَةِ ۖ قُل إِنَّما عِلمُها عِندَ اللَّهِ ۚ وَما يُدريكَ لَعَلَّ السّاعَةَ تَكونُ قَريبًا(63)
People ask you regarding the Last Day; proclaim, “Its knowledge is only with Allah; and what do you know, the Last Day may really be near!”(63)
إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَنَ الكٰفِرينَ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُم سَعيرًا(64)
Allah has indeed cursed the disbelievers, and has kept prepared for them a blazing fire.(64)
خٰلِدينَ فيها أَبَدًا ۖ لا يَجِدونَ وَلِيًّا وَلا نَصيرًا(65)
In which they will remain forever; in it they will find neither a protector nor any supporter.(65)
يَومَ تُقَلَّبُ وُجوهُهُم فِى النّارِ يَقولونَ يٰلَيتَنا أَطَعنَا اللَّهَ وَأَطَعنَا الرَّسولا۠(66)
On the day when their faces will be overturned being roasted inside the fire, they will say, “Alas – if only we had obeyed Allah and obeyed His Noble Messenger!”(66)
وَقالوا رَبَّنا إِنّا أَطَعنا سادَتَنا وَكُبَراءَنا فَأَضَلّونَا السَّبيلا۠(67)
And they will say, “Our Lord! We followed our chiefs and our elders – so they misled us from the path!”(67)
رَبَّنا ءاتِهِم ضِعفَينِ مِنَ العَذابِ وَالعَنهُم لَعنًا كَبيرًا(68)
“Our Lord! Give them double the punishment of the fire and send upon them a mighty curse!”(68)
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا لا تَكونوا كَالَّذينَ ءاذَوا موسىٰ فَبَرَّأَهُ اللَّهُ مِمّا قالوا ۚ وَكانَ عِندَ اللَّهِ وَجيهًا(69)
O People who Believe! Do not be like the people who troubled Moosa – so Allah freed him from the allegations they had uttered; and Moosa is honourable in the sight of Allah.(69)
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَقولوا قَولًا سَديدًا(70)
O People who Believe! Fear Allah, and speak rightly.(70)
يُصلِح لَكُم أَعمٰلَكُم وَيَغفِر لَكُم ذُنوبَكُم ۗ وَمَن يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَرَسولَهُ فَقَد فازَ فَوزًا عَظيمًا(71)
He will rectify your deeds for you and forgive you your sins; and whoever obeys Allah and His Noble Messenger, has indeed achieved a great success.(71)
إِنّا عَرَضنَا الأَمانَةَ عَلَى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَالجِبالِ فَأَبَينَ أَن يَحمِلنَها وَأَشفَقنَ مِنها وَحَمَلَهَا الإِنسٰنُ ۖ إِنَّهُ كانَ ظَلومًا جَهولًا(72)
We indeed offered the trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused it and were afraid of it – and man accepted it; indeed he is one who puts himself into hardship, is extremely unwise.(72)
لِيُعَذِّبَ اللَّهُ المُنٰفِقينَ وَالمُنٰفِقٰتِ وَالمُشرِكينَ وَالمُشرِكٰتِ وَيَتوبَ اللَّهُ عَلَى المُؤمِنينَ وَالمُؤمِنٰتِ ۗ وَكانَ اللَّهُ غَفورًا رَحيمًا(73)
In order that Allah may punish the hypocrite men, and the hypocrite women, and the polytheist men, and the polytheist women – and accept the repentance of believing men and believing women; and Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.(73)
