In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Allah void the deeds of the disbelievers
1 Those who reject Allah and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah their deeds will Allah render astray (From their mark). 4817
2 But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness and believe in the (Revelation) sent down to Muhammad-for it is the Truth from their Lord He will remove from them their ills and improve their condition. 4818
3 This because those who reject Allah follow vanities while those who believe follow the Truth from their Lord: Thus does Allah set forth for men their lessons by similitudes. 4819
In case of war thoroughly subdue the unbelievers before taking prisoners of war
4 Therefore when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight) smite at their necks; at length when ye have thoroughly subdued them bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah's Will He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you some with others. But those who are slain in the way of Allah He will never let their deeds be lost. 4820 4821 4822 4823 4824
5 Soon will He guide them and improve their condition. 4825
6 And admit them to the Garden which He has announced for them. 4826
If you help the cause of Allah, Allah will help and protect you
7 O ye who believe! if ye will aid (the cause of) Allah He will aid you and plant your feet firmly.
8 But those who reject (Allah) for them is destruction and (Allah) will render their deeds astray (from their mark). 4827
9 That is because they hate the Revelation of Allah; so He has made their deeds fruitless. 4828
10 Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the End of those before them (who did evil)? Allah brought utter destruction on them and similar (fates await) those who reject Allah. 4829
11 That is because Allah is the Protector of those who believe but those who reject Allah have no protector.
Believers do not follow their own desires
12 Verily Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to Gardens beneath which rivers flow; while those who reject Allah will enjoy (this world) and eat as cattle eat; and the Fire will be their abode. 4830
13 And how many cities with more power than thy city which has driven thee out have We destroyed (for their sins)? And there was none to aid them. 4831
14 Is then one who is on a clear (Path) from his Lord no better than one to whom the evil of his conduct seems pleasing and such as follow their own lusts? 4832
Parable of paradise and hell
15 (Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised: in it are rivers of water incorruptible: rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine a joy to those who drink; and rivers of honey pure and clear. In it there are for them all kinds of fruits and Grace from their Lord. (Can those in such Bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell for ever in the Fire and be given to drink boiling water so that it cuts up their bowels (to pieces)? 4833 4834 4835 4836
Hypocrites are those on whose heart Allah has set a seal
16 And among them are men who listen to thee but in the end when they go out from thee they say to those who have received Knowledge: "What is it he said just then?" Such are men whose hearts Allah has sealed and who follow their own lusts. 4837
17 But to those who receive Guidance He increases (the light of) Guidance and bestows on them their Piety and Restraint (from evil). 4838
18 Do they then only wait for the Hour that it should come on them of a sudden? But already have come some tokens thereof and when it (actually) is on them how can they benefit then by their admonition? 4839 4840
19 Know therefore that there is no god but Allah and ask forgiveness for the fault and for the men and women who believe: for Allah knows how ye move about and how ye dwell in your homes. 4841 4842
Promise of obedience (Islam) and good talk which is not followed by action is cursed by Allah
20 Those who believe say "Why is not a Surah sent down (for us)?" But when a Surah of basic or categorical meaning is revealed and fighting is mentioned therein thou wilt see those in whose hearts is a disease looking at thee with a look of one in swoon at the approach of death: but more fitting for them 4843 4844 4845
21 Were it to obey and say what is just and when a matter is resolved on it were best for them if they were true to Allah. 4846
22 Then is it to be expected of you if ye will do no mischief in the land and break your ties of kith and kin? 4847
23 Such are the men whom Allah has cursed for He has made them deaf and blinded their sight. 4848
24 Do they not then earnestly seek to understand the Qur'an or are their hearts locked up by them?
25 Those who turn back as apostates after Guidance was clearly shown to them the Evil One has instigated them and buoyed them up with false hopes. 4849
26 This because they said to those who hate what Allah has revealed "We will obey you in part of (this) matter"; but Allah knows their (inner) secrets. 4850
27 But how (will it be) when the angels take their souls at death and smite their faces and their backs? 4851 4852
28 This because they followed that which called forth the Wrath of Allah and they hated Allah's good pleasure; so He made their deeds of no effect.
Allah put the believers to test in order to know the valiant and the resolute
29 Or do those in whose hearts is a disease think that Allah will not bring to light all their rancor? 4853
30 Had We so willed We could have shown them up to thee and thou shouldst have known them by their marks: but surely thou wilt know them by the tone of their speech! And Allah knows All that ye do. 4854
31 And We shall try you until We test those among you who strive their utmost and persevere in patience; and We shall try your reported (mettle). 4855 4856
32 Those who reject Allah hinder (men) from the Path of Allah and resist the Apostle after Guidance has been clearly shown to them will not injure Allah in the least but He will make their deeds of no effect. 4857
33 O ye who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and make not vain your deeds!
34 Those who reject Allah and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah then die rejecting Allah Allah will not forgive them. 4858
In the case of war Allah is on the side of the believers
35 Be not weary and faint-hearted crying for peace. When ye should be Uppermost: for Allah is with you and will never put you in loss for your (good) deeds. 4859
36 The life of this world is but play and amusement: and if ye believe land guard against evil He will grant you your recompense and will not ask you (to give up) your possessions. 4860 4861
Do not be niggardly if you are asked to give in the cause of Allah
37 If He were to ask you for all of them and press you ye would covetously withhold and He would bring out all your ill-feeling. 4862 4863
38 Behold ye are those invited to spend (of your substance) in the way of Allah: but among you are some that are niggardly. But any who are niggardly are so at the expense of their own souls. But Allah is free of all wants and it is ye that are needy. If ye turn back (from the Path) He will substitute in your stead another people; then they would not be like you! 4864 4865
