ALLAH in the
name of The Most Affectionate, the Merciful.
Alif-Lam Mim (Individual Letters of Arabic
That high ranked Book (Quran) whereof there is no
place of doubt, in it there is guidance to the
Who believe without seeing, and establish prayer and
spend in Our path, out of Our provided subsistence.
And who believe in what has been sent down towards
you, O beloved prophet! And what has been sent down
before you and are convinced of the Last Day.
They alone are on the guidance from their Lord and
they alone are the gainers.
Surely, as to those who are destined to infidelity,
it is alike whether you warn them or warn them not,
they will never believe.
Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their
ears, and over their eyes there is a dark covering,
and for them is great torment.
And some people say, 'We have believed in Allah and
the Last Day' yet they are not to believe.
They seek to deceive Allah and the believers, and in
fact, they deceive not but their own souls, and they
In their hearts is a disease, so Allah has increased
their disease and for them is a painful torment, the
recompense of their lies.
And when it is said to them, create not disorder on
the earth, they say, 'we are but reformats'.
Be-ware! It is they who are the mischief-makers, but
they perceive not.
And when it is said to them 'believe as others have
believed,' they say, 'shall we believe as fools',
believe, Beware! It is they who are the fools, but
they do not know.
And when they meet believers, they say, 'we
believe', and when they are alone with their devils,
they say, 'we are with you, we are only mocking'.
Allah mocks at them (Befitting His Dignity) and
leaves them to wander about in their contumacy.
They are those people who purchased error for
guidance but their trade earned them no profit, and
they indeed knew not the way of trading.
Their example is like the one who kindled a fire, so
when it lit up all around him, Allah took away their
light and left them in darkness where nothing is
Deaf, Dumb, blind, so they are not to return.
Or like a rain pouring from the sky. Wherein is
darkness and thunder and lightning, they thrust
fingers in their ears because of the thunderclaps
for fear of death and Allah has encompassed the
It so "seems that the lightning, would snatch away
the, sights whenever there is some flashing they
walk therein and when it is dark, they stand still,
and if Allah willed He would have taken away their
ears and sights, surely Allah can do everything.
O Mankind! Worship your Lord Who has created you and
those before you, haply you may become pious.
And Who made the earth a bed for you, and the sky a
structure and caused water to come down from heaven
hence brought forth therewith some fruits for your
food, therefore do not set up equals for Allah
And if you are in some doubt, concerning what We
sent down upon Our special devotee, then bring one
chapter like it, and call upon all your helpers
beside Allah, if you are truthful.
Then if you cannot bring and We declare that you can
never bring, hence dread the fire whose fuel is men
and stones, is prepared for the disbeliveers.
And give glad tidings to those who accepted faith
and did good deeds, that for them there are gardens
under which flow streams. Whenever they would be
provided with a fruit to eat, they would say seeing
its shape this is the same substance which we got
before and that was given to them resembling in
shape, and for them there are pure mates and therein
they will abide for ever.
Surely, Allah not ashamed of describing any thing
for illustration, be it a gnat or above it, hence
those who accepted faith, they know that it is the
truth from their Lord, and those who are
disbeliveers they say, "What does Allah mean by such
a similitude". Allah sends astray many by it and
guides many and Bends astray those by it who are
Those who break the covenant of Allah after its
confirmation and sever that which Allah ordered to
join and spread disorder in the earth, they are the
How you will disbelieve in Allah, whereas, you were
dead, He gave you life, then will cause you to die
then again will give you life, then towards Him you
He it is Who created for you all that is in the
earth, then turned toward the heaven, then formed
seven heavens correctly and He knows all and every
And recall when your Lord said to the Angels, I am
about to place a vice-generate in the earth, they
said, "will You place such who will spread disorder
and shed blood'? And We praise You commending You
and sanctify You; He told, 'I know what you know
And Allah the Exalted taught the names of all things
to Adam. Then presenting all shines before the
Angels said, "Tell the names of these, if you are
They said 'Sanctity to You", We know nothing, but
what You Taught us, no doubt, You alone are the
Knower and the Wise.
He "said, "O Adam tell them the names of all shines,
when Adam had informed them of the names of all, He
told, had I not told you that I know all the hidden
things of the beavers and earth, and I know whatever
you disclose and whatever you hide.
And recall, when We ordered the angels to prostrate
before Adam, then all prostrated save Iblis. He
refused, boasted, and became disbeliever.
And We said, "O Adam dwell you and your wife in this
(paradise) and eat freely thereof where you will but
do not approach this tree lest you become of the
Then Satan made them slip and got them out from the
place where they lived, and We said, "get down, one
of you is the enemy of the other and you have to
stay in the earth and to make use of it for a time.
Then Adam learnt certain words from his Lord so
Allah accepted his penitence. Surely, He is the
alone most Relenting, Merciful.
We said, "you all get down from the paradise then if
any guidance comes to you from Me, then who-so-ever
followed My guidance, they have no fear nor any
And those who disbelieve and shall belie My signs,
they are the people of the hell, they have to live
in it forever.
O Children of Yaqoob recall My, that favor which I
bestowed upon you and fulfill My covenant, I shall
fulfill your covenant and dread Me alone.
And believe in what I sent down confirming that
which is with you and be not the first rejecter of
it and accept not small price for My signs and dread
And confound not the truth with falsehood and
conceal not the truth knowingly.
And establish prayer and pay the Zakat (Poor due)
and bow with those who bow.
Do you order righteousness to mankind and forget
yourselves whereas you read the Book? Then, have you
And seek help in patience and prayer, and surely,
the prayer is hard indeed save to those, who lean
towards Me with their hearts.
Who are sure that they have to meet their Lord and
to return unto Him alone.
O Children of Yaqoob recall My favor, which I
bestowed upon you, and exalted you over the entire
world in your time.
And fear the day, when no soul shall be a substitute
for another, and nor any Intercession be accepted
for the infidels and nor his soul be freed for any
compensations and nor shall they be helped.
And recall when We delivered you from the Pharaoh's
people that afflicted you with grievous torment,
slaughtering your sons and keeping your daughters
alive and in this, there was a great trial or great
reward from your Lord.
And when We divided the river for you then saved you
and drowned pharaohs' people before your eyes.
And We made a promise of forty night' with Moses,
then after him, you began worshipping a calf and you
Then We pardoned you after that, so that you might
And when We gave the Book to Moses and Criterion to
judge between right and wrong, so that you might be
on right path.
And when Moses said to his people, "O my people, you
have do" injustice to your souls by taking the Calf,
turn therefore towards your Creator then kill
amongst your selves each other. That is better for
you with your Creator, so He accepted your
penitence. Surely, He is alone the most Relenting,
And when you said, "O Moses, we shall never believe
you, until we see Allah manifestly, then the thunder
bolt overtook you, while you were looking.
Then We made you alive after your death, so that you
might be grateful.
And We made cloud your shade and sent down on you
Manna and Salwa, eat of Our good things, provided by
Us, and they did no harm to Us, yes they had harmed
their own souls.
And when We said, "Go into this town, then eat
freely there from wherever you will, and enter the
gate prostrating and say, 'forgive our sins', We
shall forgive your sins end it is possible that more
be given to the right doers.
Then the unjust changed the words beside that which
had been told, so We sent down upon them a scourge
from heaven, in lieu of their disobedience.
And when Moses asked water for his people, then We
said, "Strike this rock with your staff," atone,
there gushed forth twelve springs therefrom. Each
group knew its drinking place. Eat and drink of what
Allah has provided and do not wander in the earth
And when you said, "O Moses, we will not remain
content with one food, pray then to your Lord, that
He bring forth for us of what the earth grows, some
vegetables and cucumbers and wheat and lentils and
onions," said, "Do you demand inferior thing in
exchange of the superior?" Well get down in Egypt or
in any city, there you shall get that which you
demanded, and humiliation and poverty were stamped
upon them and drew-in the wrath of Allah. This was
in lieu of their refusal of the Signs of Allah and
slaying the prophets unjustly. This was due to their
disobedience and transgression.
Surely, those who believe, and the Jews and the
Christians and the Sabians, whoever have faith with
true hearts in Allah and in the Last-day and do good
deeds, their reward is with their Lord, and there
shall he no fear for them nor any grief.
And when We took a covenant from you and raised high
above you the mount Toor, hold firmly to what We
give you, and remember what is therein, in the hope
that you may become God-fearing.
Then you turned back thereafter, so if there had
been no Grace of Allah and His mercy upon you, then
you would have been among the losers.
And, undoubtedly, you surely know, those among you
who rebelled in the matter of Saturday (Sabbath). So
We said to them, "Be Apes, despised."
Thus, We made this event of that town a warning to
those of the present and to those after them and a
lesson to the God-fearing.
And when Moses said to his people, "Allah commands
you to slaughter a cow". They said, "you make us a
laughingstock". He said, "refuge of Allah, that I be
among the ignorant".
They said, "pray to your Lord that He tell to us,
what kind of the cow, is," he said, "says He, she is
a cow, neither old nor immature, but in between
both", so do what you are commanded.
They said, "Pray to your Lord that He tell to us
what her color is," he said, 'says He, she is a
yellow cow, whose color is intensely deep,
delightful to the beholders.
They said, "Pray to Your Lord that He explain
clearly to us, what kind of cow is that. Certainly,
we have become dubious about cows, and if Allah
wills, we shall get the guidance.
(Moses) said, "Says He, that she is a cow, no
service is taken from her nor she ploughs the earth,
nor water the filth, unblemish in which there is no
spot. They said, "now you brought the truth, then
they slaughtered her and were not willing to
And when you shed blood, then began accusing for it
each other and Allah was to disclose what you were
Then We said, "strike with a part of that cow to the
slain. Allah thus will give life to the dead and
shows you His Signs, so that you may understand.
Then, thereafter your hearts hardened, then they are
like stones, but harder than these; and of stones
there are some from which rivers gush forth and some
are those which split, then water comes therefrom
and there are some which fall down for fear of
Allah, and Allah is not unmindful of your doings.
Then O Muslims! Do you covet that the Jews would
believe you? And one group of them was that which
used to hear the words of Allah, then used to
pervert it knowingly after having understood it.
And when they meet Muslims, they say, 'we accepted
the faith', and when they are alone among
themselves, then they say, "Do you explain to
Muslims that knowledge which Allah disclosed to you,
that they thereby argue with you before your Lord.
Have you no wisdom?
Do they not know that Allah knows all that they
conceal and all that they disclose?
And some of them are illiterate who do not know the
Book, but oral reading or their own false notions
and they are in mere supposition.
Then there is woe for them who write the Book with
their own hands and then say, "this is from Allah",
so that they may gain small price in lieu of it.
Then there is woe for them for the writings of their
own hands and woe to them for such earning.
And they said, "the fire shall not touch us except
for numbered days", Say then, have you taken a
promise from Allah, then Allah, will never break His
Promise. Or you say about Allah that which you do
Aye, why not, who so earns vice and his sin
encompasses him, he is one among the people of the
hell, they have to remain therein forever.
And those, who accepted faith and did good works.
They are the people of Paradise. They have to remain
And when We took covenant from the children of
Israel that worship none save Allah and do good to
parents and to kindred, and orphans and the needy
and speak good to people and establish prayer and
pay the poor-due (Zakat); then you turned back,
except a few among you and you are back-sliders.
And when We took a covenant from you, that shed no
blood of your own and turn not out your own people
from your own towns, then you affirmed it and you
Then it is you who began slaying your own people and
turn out a group of your own people from their
homeland, provide help to (their opponents) against
them in sin and transgression, and if they come to
you as captive, you ransom them, and their expulsion
is unlawful for you. Do you then have faith on some
commandments of God and refuse some other. Then
whose of you do such, what is the reward of it, save
disgrace in the world, and on the day of
Resurrection, they shall be driven towards severest
torment, and Allah is not unaware of your doings.
These are the people who purchased the life of the
world for the life of Hereafter, so neither the
torment shall be lightened from over them nor they
shall be helped.
And verily, We gave Moses the Book and after him
send Messengers one after another, repeatedly, and
gave clear signs to Jesus son of Mary and helped him
with the Holy Spirit. Then, do you grow arrogant;
when any Messenger came to you with what your soul
desires not? So belie you a group of them (Prophets)
and slay another group.
The Jews said, "our hearts are wrapped with covers,
Nay Allah cursed them because of their blasphemy, so
little of them accept faith.
And when there came to them, that Book (Quran) of
Allah, which confirms the Book (Taurat) with them,
and before that they were asking for victory over
the infidels by means of the same prophet. Then,
when came to them that known and recognised one,
they rejected him. So Allah's curse on those who
They sold their souls, for what a miserable price
that they deny what Allah has sent down, with this
jealousy that, Allah of His grace send revelation on
whomsoever of His devotees He pleases. Thus they
became worthy of wrath upon wrath and there is
humiliating torment for the infidels.
And when it is said to them, "Have faith in what
Allah has sent down," then they say, 'We have faith
in what has been sent down to us and reject the
rest, though it is the truth confirming what is with
them. Say you, 'why did you then kill former
prophets, if you had faith upon your Book'?
And assuredly, Moses came to you with clear signs,
then after that you made the calf a god and you were
And recall, when We took a covenant from you and
raised above your heads the mountain Tur, hold what
We give to you with firmness and listen. They said,
'We heard and did not accept,' and the calf was
permeating in their hearts because of their
infidelity. Say then! 'What a vile command is given
to you by your faith, if at all you have faith'.
Say you: 'if the last home near Allah be for you
solely, not for others, then well long for death, if
you are truthful.
And they will never long for it ever, because of
their evil deeds, which they have done before, and
Allah knows the unjust well.
And undoubtedly, you will find them that they are
necessarily most covetous of life even more than of
all the people. And of idolaters, one is desirous of
having a life of thousand years, and that will not
keep him away from the torment, even being granted
such life. And Allah is seeing their doings.
Say you, 'whoever be the enemy of Jibril- then he
(Jibril) caused to descend on your heart this Quran
by the Command of Allah, Confirming the former
Books, and there is guidance and glad tidings to
Whoever be the enemy of Allah and His angels and His
Messengers and Jibril and Mikael, then Allah is the
enemy of infidels.
And undoubtedly, We sent down towards you manifest
Signs; and none would be denying them but the
And is it that whenever they enter into a covenant,
one party of them throws it out' Nay; most of them
have no faith?
And when came to them a Messenger from Allah
confirming their Books. A party of the people of the
Book threw away the Book of Allah behind their
backs, as if they had no knowledge.
And they followed that which was being recited by
the devils in the reign of Suleman and Suleman did
not disbelieve, yes; the devils disbelieved. They
teach magic to people and that (Magic) which was
sent down unto the two angels Harut & Marut in
Babel. But both did teach nothing to anyone till
they did not say this, "We are nothing but trial",
then do not therefore lose your faith. They learnt
that from them by which they might cause separation
between man and his wife, and they can not harm
anyone, but by the command of Allah. And they learn
that which will harm them, and will not profit. And
undoubtedly, they know that one who took this trade,
has no share in the hereafter and undoubtedly, what
the evil thing is that for which they sold their
souls, had they known!
And if they had accepted faith and kept themselves
aloof from sins, then there is better reward from
Allah, had they known.
O Men of faith do not say. Raina, but say humbly,
respected Sir. "Look upon us" and from very
beginning listen carefully, and for the disbeliveers
is a grievous torment.
Those who are infidels, whether people of the book
or idolaters, do not desire that any good should be
sent down to you from your Lord and Allah chooses
for His Mercy, whomsoever He pleases, and Allah is
of Exceeding Bounty.
When any verse We abrogate or cause to be forgotten,
then shall bring one better or the like thereof. Do
you not know that Allah can do all and every thing?
Do you not know that the sovereignty of heavens and
earth is only for Allah and beside Allah, you have
neither any supporter nor helper?
Do you wish to question your Messenger as Moses was
questioned before and whoever exchanges faith for
unbelief, he rightly has gone astray from the right
Many of the people of the Book desired, had you been
turned back towards infidelity after faith! Out of
sheer envy of their hearts, after it that the truth
has become manifest unto them, so leave them and
overlook, till Allah brings His command. Undoubtedly
Allah is powerful over every thing.
And keep up the prayer and pay Zakat (poor due) and
whatever good you shall send forth for your souls,
you shall find it with Allah. Undoubtedly Allah is
seeing your doings.
And the people of the Book spoke, 'None shall enter
paradise, but he who be a Jew or Christian. These
are their vain desires. Say, you 'Bring your proof,
if you are truthful'.
Yes, why not, who submitted his face for Allah and
is the doer of good, then his reward is with his
Lord and they have neither any fear nor any grief.
And the Jews spoke, '`The Christians are nothing,"
and Christians spoke; "The Jews are nothing," though
they read the Book. Even thus the illiterates said
the like of their saying. Then Allah will judge
between them on the Day of Judgement regarding that
wherein they are disputing.
Who is more unjust than he who prevents the mosques
of Allah from being mentioned the name of Allah, and
strives to ruin them, it was not proper for them to
enter the mosques but with fear. For them, there is
disgrace in the world and for them, there is great
torment in the hereafter.
And east and west all is for Allah, then whichever
side you turn your face there is the face of Allah
(The mercy of Allah inclined towards you).
Undoubtedly Allah is all Embracing, all Knowing.
And they say 'Allah has taken unto Himself a son',
sanctity is for Him. Nay, whatever is in the heavens
and is in the earth is His possession. All are unto
The Originator of the heavens and the earth, and
when He decrees any thing, then says to it only, 'Be
and it becomes at once."
And the illiterates spoke, 'Why Allah speaks not to
us or any sign is being given to us. Likewise said
those before them, similar to their saying. The
hearts of these people and of those are alike.
Undoubtedly, We manifested the signs for the persons
of firm faith.
Assuredly, We have sent you with the truth; bearer
of glad tidings and a Warner and you shall not be
questioned about the inmates of Hell.
And never the Jews and Christians will be pleased
with you unless you follow their Din (creed). Say
then! 'The guidance of Allah is the only guidance',
(O listener who he may be) if you become follower of
their desires, after the knowledge that has come to
you, then no one will be your protector from Allah
and no helper.
Those who have been given the Book by Us, they
recite it as it ought to be, they alone have faith
unto it and those who disbelieve it, they alone are
O Children of Yaqoob! Remember My favour which I
bestowed upon you and that I exalted you above all
people of that period.
And fear the day when no soul shall be a substitute
for another and nor it shall be freed for any
compensation, and nor any intercession will profit
the infidels and nor will they be helped.
And when his Lord tested Ibrahim with certain words
then he fulfilled them. Said He "I am to make you
leader of the people," submitted he" and from my off
springs". Said He, "My covenant does not reach to
And recall! When We made this house a place of
assembly for the people and a place of safety, and
make the station of Ibrahim a place of prayer and We
enjoined strictly upon Ibrahim and Ismail to purify
well My house for those who go around it and those
who stay therein for devotion and those who bow down
And when Ibrahim submitted "O my Lord make this City
a region of peace and feed the inhabitants of it
with varied fruits to such of them who believe in
Allah and the Last Day,' said He, "and who became
unbeliever, to him also I will give a little to use,
and then shall force him towards the torment of the
hell and that is an evil place of return.
And when Ibrahim was raising the foundations of this
house and Ismail (too) praying, O Our Lord accept
from us, undoubtedly, You alone Hear and Know'.
'O Our Lord! Make us submissive to You and of our
offspring a nation submissive to You, tell us our
ways of worship, and turn to us with Your mercy.
Surely, You alone are most Relenting and Merciful.
'O Our Lord, and send in them a messenger from among
themselves, who may recite to them Your signs and
teach them Your Book and wise knowledge and may
purify them well. Surely, You are alone the
Predominant, the Wise.
And who will turn his face from the religion of
Ibrahim, save one who is a foolish in heart, and
undoubtedly, We necessarily, chose him in the world
and surely he is among the people having ability to
gain Our special proximity in the hereafter.
When his Lord said to him, "Surrender", submitted
he, 'I surrendered to Him, Who is the Lord of all
And Ibrahim left the legacy of the same religion to
his sons and Yaqoob too; that 'O my sons, surely
Allah has chosen this religion for you, therefore
die not, but as Muslim.
On the contrary, some of you were present, when
death came to Yaqoob, when he said to his sons,
'whom you will worship after me', said they 'we
shall worship He Who is your God and of your fathers
Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaque, the one God and to
Him we have submitted ourselves'.
This is a community that has passed away, for them
what they earned and for you are what you earn and
you shall not be questioned for their deeds.
And the people of the book spoke, 'Be Jews or
Christians, you will get guidance'. Say you, 'on the
contrary, we take the religion of Ibrahim who was
away from every falls-hood and was not among the
Say like this, 'we believe in Allah and what has
been sent down towards us and what was sent down on
Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaque and Yaqoob and on his
son and what was given to Moses and Christ and what
was given to the rest of the prophets from their
Lord: we do not differentiate between any of them in
the matter of faith and we have submitted ourselves
Then if they believe too, as you have believed then
they are guided, and if they turn back their faces,
then they are but in total schism. So, O beloved,
prophet! Soon Allah will suffice you on behalf of
them. He is alone Hearing and Knowing.
We took the dye of Allah and whose dye is better
than Allah and We worship Him alone.
Say you! 'Do you dispute about Allah, though He is
our Lord and yours too; and our doings are with us
and your doings with you, and we belong totally to
On the contrary, you say like this, that Ibrahim,
and Ismail and Ishaque and Yaqoob and his sons were
Jews or Christians; say then, 'have you more
knowledge or Allah,' and who is more unjust than he
who conceals' the testimony and Allah is not
unmindful of your doings.
That is a community that has passed away, for them
is their earning and for you is your earning and you
shall not be questioned of their works.
Now the fools will say: 'who has turned the Muslims
from their Qibla on which they had been? Say you:
'East and West all belong to Allah; He guides whom
He likes to the right path.
And thus We made you exalted among all nations that
you may be witnesses to the people and this
Messenger your guard and witness. And O, beloved! We
had not made that Qibla upon which you had been
before, but to see who follows the Messenger and who
turns back upon his heals. And verily, indeed it was
hard, but to those who were guided by Allah. And it
does not behave Allah that He might waste your
faith: Verily Allah is very Kind and Merciful to
We are seeing the turning of your face towards
heaven repeatedly; necessarily then We will turn you
towards that Qibla which pleases you. Turn your face
towards the sacred mosque (Kaaba) just now; and O
Muslims! Turn your faces towards the same, whenever
you be. And those who; have been given the Book know
necessarily, that this is the truth from their Lord,
and Allah is not unaware of their doings.
And even if you should, bring every sign to those
people of the Book, they would not follow your
Qibla: And you follow not their Qibla; and they are
not followers of each other Qibla among themselves
too. And (O listener, whoever he may be) if you
should follow their desires after the knowledge that
has been given to you, then at that time, you shall
surely be of the transgressors.
Those whom We gave the Book recognise this prophet
as man recognises his sons and no doubt, a group of
them conceal the truth knowingly.
(O Listener) It is the truth from your Lord (or the
truth is that which is from your Lord) then beware!
And there is a direction of inclination for every
one towards which, he turns his face; then desire
that you may surpass others in good deeds. Wherever
you be, Allah will bring you all together. No doubt,
Allah has the power to do all that He wills.
And from where so ever you come forth turn your face
towards the sacred Mosque (Kaaba) and that is
necessarily, the truth from your Lord and Allah is
not unaware of your doings.
And O beloved! When so-ever you come forth turn your
face towards the sacred Mosque (Kaaba) And O
Muslims! Turn your faces towards the same, wherever
you be, so that people may have no argument against
you, but those among them who do injustice, so fear
them not and fear Me. And it is for this that I may
perfect My favour upon you and that you may be
As We sent in you Messenger from among you, that he
recites Our signs to you and purifies you and
teaches you the Book and mature knowledge and
teaches you that which you did not know.
Therefore remember Me, I shall remember you, and
accept My right and do not be ungrateful to Me.
O Believers! Seek help with patience and prayer; no
doubt, Allah is with the Patients.
And say not those who are killed in the path of
Allah as dead; but they are alive yes, you are
And necessarily, We shall put you to test with
something of fear and hunger and with some loss of
wealth and lives and fruits; and give glad tidings
to the patient.
That when any calamity comes to them, then they say
"We are belongings of Allah and we are to return to
These are the people on whom are the benediction
from their Lord and mercy; and they are only on the
No doubt, Safa and Marwa are among the symbols of
Allah, then whose makes pilgrimage to this House or
performs "Umra", there is no sin for him that he may
go round both, and who so does any good voluntarily,
then Allah is Appreciating and All-knowing.
No doubt, those who conceal what We have sent down
of clear signs and guidance after that We have made
it clear in the Book for the people, on them there
is the curse of Allah and the curse of those who
But those who repent and amend and make manifest
then I shall accept their repentance and I am the
only Relenting Merciful.
No doubt, those who disbelieved and died as
disbeliveers on them is the curse of Allah and of
Angels and of men combined.
They will ever remain in it, neither the torment
shall be lightened from them and nor shall they be
And your God is one God, there is no God but He most
Gracious and Merciful.
Verily, the creation of heavens and earth and coming
of night and day alternately, and the boat that
sails in the river for the benefit of the people,
and that which Allah sends down of water from
heaven, and revives the dead earth thereby and
scatters all kinds of beast therein, and the change
of winds and the cloud that is obedient between
heaven and earth, in all of them, necessarily there
are signs for the wise people.
And some people set some other deities of worship
other than Allah that they love them as they are to
love Allah and the believers love not anyone equal
to that of Allah. And what would be the condition,
if the transgressors see the time when the torments
would come before their eyes, because all power
belongs to Allah and because the torment of Allah is
When those who were followed would be disgusted with
their followers and would see the torment and all
their ties shall be cut asunder.
And the followers will say, 'Would that for us there
were a return (in the world) then We would have
broken with them as they have broken with us. Thus
will Allah show them their works as anguish for
them, and they are not to come out from the Fire.
O, Mankind! Eat of whatever is in earth lawful clean
and follow not the steps of the Devil, no doubt, he
is your open enemy.
He will only command you to evil and indecency and
that you should say of Allah what you do not know.
And when it is said to them, 'follow what Allah has
sent down, they say, 'Nay We shall follow that
whereon we found our fathers, what! Even if their
fathers had no sense at all and no guidance?
And the saying of disbeliveers is like him who calls
unto that who hears nothing except a shout and cry;
deaf, dumb, blind, so they have no sense.
O, believers! Eat our good things provided to you,
and be grateful to Allah, if it is He whom you
He has only made unlawful to you the Carrion, and
blood and the flesh of swine and the animal that has
been slaughtered by calling a name other than Allah.
But he who is driven by necessity, eat neither

sin on him, no doubt, Allah is Forgiving and
Those who conceal the Book sent down by Allah and in
exchange of it accept mean price; they fill-in their
bellies with fire only and Allah will not talk to
them on the Day of Resurrection and nor will He
purify them and for them is painful torment.
Those are they who purchased error in exchange of
guidance and torment for forgiveness. Then to what
degree is their endurance for fire.
This is because Allah sent down the Book with truth,
and no doubt, those who began to put difference in
the Book, they are necessarily, brawlers of highest
The real righteousness is not this that you turn
your face towards East or West; yes, the real virtue
is this that one has faith in Allah and the Last day
and the angels and the Book and the Prophets and
gives his dear wealth for love of Allah to kindred
and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and the
beggars and for redeeming necks, and establishes
prayer and pays poor due (Zakat); and the performer
of their promises when make promise and the patients
in tribulation and adversity and at time of
crusade;-These are they, who proved truth of their
talks and they are only God-fearing.
O, believers: It is obligatory upon you to take
retaliation of the blood of those who are killed
innocently, the. Free for free and the slave for
slave and woman for woman. Then as for him who is
forgiven something by his brother, there should be
demand for payment with kindness and the payment be
made satisfactorily well. This is to ease your
burden from your Lord and a mercy upon you. Then
after this one who transgresses for him there is
And there is life for you in retaliating for blood,
O men of understanding! So that you may save
Made obligatory on you that when death approaches
any of you, if he leaves some property, then he
should make a will for his parents and near
relatives according to usage. This is an obligation
on those who fear God.
Then who so changes the will after hearing, the sin
thereof is only on those who change it. No doubt,
Allah knows and hears.
Then who feared, that the testator has done certain
injustice or sin, then he made peace between them,
there is no sin for him no doubt Allah is Forgiving
O Believers! Fasting have been made obligatory upon
you as were made obligatory upon those before you,
so that you may become pious.
The days are counted. Then who so among you is ill
or on a journey then same number of fasting in other
days, and those who have no strength, they should
give in ransom meal to a needy: then who so does
more good voluntarily, then that is better for him,
and fasting is better for you if you know.
The month of Ramzan in which Quran was sent down,
the direction for the people and guidance and clear
signs of judgement; that whoso of you finds this
month, necessarily, he should fast in it, and whoso
is ill or on a journey then same number of fasting
in other days; Allah desires facility for you and
desires not hardship and for this, that you should
complete the counting and speak of the Greatness of
Allah, as He guided you and so that you may be
And O beloved, when My bondsmen ask you about Me,
then I am indeed near, accept the call of the caller
when he calls upon Me; then they should obey My
Commands and believe in Me, so that they may get the
It was made lawful for you to go near your women in
the nights of fasting. They are your garments and
you are their garments. Allah know that you used to
put your souls in defalcation, then He accepted your
repentance and pardoned you; then now copulate
(Intercourse) with them and seek what Allah has
written in your destiny and eat and drink until
white thread becomes distinct to you from the black
thread at the dawn; then complete the fasts till
coming of night, and do not touch the women when you
remain in the mosques, for devotion. These are the
limits of Allah, do not approach them. Allah thus
describes His Signs to the people, so that they may
And do not eat up unjustly the property of each
other among yourselves and nor' convey their cases
to the authorities for devouring unlawfully some
portion of the property of the people knowingly.
They ask you about the new moons. Say you, 'They are
the signs of time for the people and pilgrimage
(Haj). And it is no virtue that you enter your
houses by the backs thereof, yes, the virtue is
piety, so come in houses by their doors and fear
Allah in the hope that you may get prosperity.
And fight in the way of Allah, those who fight
against you and do not transgress, Allah does not
love the transgressors.
And kill the infidels wherever you find and turn
them out from the place where from they turned you
out; and their mischief is more grievous than
killing. And if they fight them near the sacred
mosque unless they fight you therein, and they fight
against you then kill, them. This is the only
punishment of infidels.
Then if they desist, then no doubt, Allah is
And fight them until there is no mischief and be

there is no violence save against oppressors.
There is forbidden month in exchange of forbidden

And spend in the way of Allah, and cast not yourself
in destruction with your hand and be good-doers; no
doubt! Good doers are the beloveds of Allah.
And fulfil the Haj and Umra for Allah. Then if you
are prevented, send sacrifice which you may get
easily and shave not your heads, unless the
sacrifice reaches its destination; Then whoso is ill
of you or there is some ailment in his head, then he
should keep fast in exchange or give alms or
sacrifice, then when you are at ease, then whoso
takes advantage by combining Umra with Haj, on him
there is sacrifice which may be obtained easily.
Then whoso cannot afford. He should fast for three
days during Haj and seven days when he returns back
home, these are ten days complete. This Command is
for him who is not the dweller of Mecca and remains
fearing to Allah and knows that the torment of Allah
The months of Haj are known; then whoso determines
to perform Haj in these months, then there should be
no mention of Copulation before women nor any sin
nor quarrelling with anyone till the time of Haj;
and whatever good you do, Allah knows it. And take
necessary provision with you, the best provision is
piety and remain fearing Me, O Men of under
There is no sin unto you that you seek the bounty of
your Lord. Then when you return back from 'Arafat'
remembers Allah near Mashhare-Haram (Qazah Mountain)
and remembers Him as He guided you and no doubt, you
had gone astray before.
Then the thing is this that O Men of Quraish, you
also return back from the same place whence the
people return back and seek forgiveness from Allah:
no doubt Allah is Forgiving Merciful.
Then when you have completed the acts of Haj,
remember Allah as you used to remember your fathers,
but more than that, and some one says like this, 'O
our Lord give us in the world and there is no share
of him in the Hereafter.
And someone says like this, 'O our Lord give us good
in the world and give us good in the Hereafter and
save us from the torment of the Hell
To such people there is share from their earning and
Allah is swift at reckoning.
And remember Allah during Numbered days. Then whoso
hastens to leave in two days; there is no sin unto
him and whoso stays behind, then on him is no sin
for the God fearing, and remain fearing God and know
that you have to be raised unto Him.
And some one of men is he whose talk seems pleasing
to you and bring Allah as a witness on what is in
his heart, while he is the greatest disputer.
And when he turns his back then wanders spreading
mischief in the land and destroys the crops and
lives and Allah agrees not with the mist chief.
And when it is said to him, 'fear Allah' then he
becomes more persistence in sin, to such the hell is
enough and that is necessarily, a very bad bed.
And some one of men sells his life in seeking the
pleasure of Allah and Allah is Merciful over his
O People of Faith! enter into Islam as a whole and
do not follow the footsteps of Satan (devil); no
doubt, he is your open enemy.
And even after this,
that clear commands have come unto you, you slip,
then know that Allah is Mighty, Wise.
What they are waiting for but for this that the
torment of Allah should come in the coverings of
clouds and the angels should come down and the
affairs be completed and to Allah are all affairs
Ask children of Israel, how many clear signs We gave
them and whoso changes the favour of Allah after it
has come, then no doubt, the torment of Allah is
The life of the world has been decorated in the eyes
of infidels and they laugh at Muslims and those who
fear would be above them on the Day of Resurrection;
and God bestows without counting whomsoever He
People were on one religion thereafter Allah sent
prophets giving good tidings and warning and sent
down with them the true Book that it should judge
between people in their differences. And only those
differed in the Book to whom it was given after
clear commands had come to them, through refraction
among themselves. Then Allah showed the truth to the
believers in which they were quarrelling by His
Command, and Allah shows the straight path
whomsoever He pleases.
Do you imagine that you will enter Paradise, and yet
the incidents like of your forerunners did not come
unto you? The affliction and adversity reached to
them and they were badly shaken until the messenger
and believers along with him said, 'when will come
the help of Allah Listen: no doubt, the help of
Allah is nigh.
They ask you what they should spend. Say: whatever
wealth you spend in good, then that is for parents
and near relatives and orphans and the needy and the
wayfarer. And whatsoever good you do, no doubt:
Allah knows it.
It was made obligatory upon you, to fight in the
path of God and though it is disliked by you, and it
may happen that any thing may be disliked by you and
that may be in your favour, and it may happen that
anything may be liked by you and that may not be in
your favour, and Allah knows and you do not know.
They ask you the precept for fighting in the sacred
month. Say you: 'Fighting therein is a great sin;
but to prohibit from the way of Allah, and not to
have faith in Him and to prevent from the sacred
Mosque (Haram) and to oust its dwellers, are greater
sins than it with Allah; and their mischief is more
grievous than killing. And they will remain fighting
against you always, until they turn you back from
your faith, if they can. And whoso among you turns
back from his faith, then dies as an infidel, then
their works shall go in vain in the world and in the
Hereafter, and they are the people of Hell and will
abide in it.
Those who believed and those who left their home and
hearth for Allah and fought in the way of Allah,
they are the aspirants of the mercy of Allah and
Allah is Forgiving Merciful.
They ask you the precept of wine and gambling. Say
you, 'in both there is great sin and also some
worldly profit for the people but their sin is
greater than their profit and ask you what they
ought to spend, say you, 'that which is saved after
your needs'. Thus, Allah explains to you His Signs
so that you may do after reflecting,
The works of the world and the Hereafter. And they
ask you, the precept about orphans. Say you, 'To do
good to them is better, and if you intermix your and
their expenses then they are your brothers; and
Allah knows well the mischief-maker from the
reformer. And had Allah so willed, He would have put
you into hardship, no doubt, Allah is Mighty, Wise.
And marry not idolaters until they accept faith and
no doubt, a Muslim bondman is better than an
idolater is though she may please you. And give not
in marriage to idolaters until they accept faith,
and no doubt, a Muslim bondman is better than an
idolater, though he may please you. They call
towards Hell and Allah call towards Heaven and
forgiveness by His Command and explain His Signs for
the people so that they may accept admonition.
And they ask you the precept about menstruation. Say
you: - that is a pollution, so keep away from women
during menstruation and do not approach them until
they are roach them until they are clean. Then when
they are clean, go in unto them whence Allah has
commanded you. No doubt, Allah likes the constant
repentance and likes cleansers.
Your women are tilths for you, then come in your
tilth as you will, and do first the work for your
good, and remain fearing Allah and know that you are
to meet Him. And O beloved! Give glad tidings to the
And make not Allah the target of your oaths that you
may take oath for not doing good and nor fearing
Allah and nor making peace between men; and Allah
Allah does not call you to account for your such
oaths as they come out from your tongs
unintentionally, yes, He calls you to account for
what your hearts have done, and Allah is Forgiving,
For those who swear off from going to their wives is
an awaiting of four months; hence if they go back in
this period, then Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
And if you decide firmly to divorce, then Allah
And divorced women should keep their souls away till
three menstruations, and it is not lawful to them
that they conceal what Allah has created in their
wombs. If they have faith in Allah and the Last Day.
And their husbands have the right to take them back
during that period provided they will to rejoin. And
the women have rights similar to those over them
according to law, and men have superiority over them
and Allah is Dominant, Wise.
This divorce is for two times only; then is to
retain with good or to release with kindness, and it
is not allowed to you to take back something of what
you have given to the women, but if both fear that
they could not keep the limits of Allah. Then, if
you fear that the Twain shall not remain just on the
same limits then there is no sin on them for that
with which the woman ransoms herself. These are the
limits of Allah, do not transgress them, and whoso
transgresses the limits of Allah, then they are the
Then if she is divorced for the third time, then
that women will not be lawful to him, until she
lives with another husband, then if that second one
divorces her, then there is no sin on the twain if
they come together again, if they think that they
will observe the limits of Allah, and these are the
limits of Allah. He explains them for the learned.
And when you divorce women and their period are
completed, then, till that time either retain them
kindly or release them kindly, but there should not
be retention to hurt them so that you may transgress
the limit and whoso does this, he wrongs his own
soul, and do not make jest of the signs of Allah and
remember the favour of Allah upon you and the Book
and Wisdom which He has sent down to you for
admonishing you, and remain fearing Allah and know
that Allah knows all things.
And when you divorce women and their period are
completed, then O guardians of women! Prevent them
not from marrying their husbands, when they agree
among themselves according to law. This counsel is
given to him who among you have faith in Allah and
the Last Day. This is cleaner and purer for you, and
Allah knows and you do not know.
And mothers should suckle their children for
complete two years, for him who intends to complete
the period of suckling, and to whom the child
belongs, on him there is feeding and clothing of the
women according to convention. No soul shall be
burdened but within his capacity, the mother should
not be made to suffer because of her child and nor
father because of his child or (the mother should
not make the child to suffer, and nor father to his
child, and the same is incumbent on the father's
heir. Then if the mother and father both try to wean
by mutual consent and consultation, there is no sin
on them; and if you wish that your children should
be suckled by nurses, then too there is no blame on
you, provided what was agreed to pay is paid by you
with kindness, and remain fearing Allah and know
that Allah is seeing your works.
And those of you who die and leave behind wives,
they should keep themselves apart for a period of
four months and ten days, then when they complete
their period, then O guardians! There is no blame on
you in anything, which the women do with regard to
themselves according to law. And Allah is aware what
And there is no sin on, you regarding this, that you
sent offer of marriage to women by giving obscure
hint or hold it in your hearts. Allah knows that now
you will remember them. Yes, make not with them
secret contract, but say that much only which is
known in law. And do not resolve wedding-tie until
the written term reaches to its period and know that
Allah knows what is in your heart, then fear him and
know that Allah is Forgiving, Forbearing
There is no any demand against you if you divorce
the women while you have not touched them or have
fixed any dower. And give them something to carry on
with the men of resources according to his means and
the poor according to his means some" thing to carry
on with, this is incumbent on the well doers.
And if you divorced women without touching them and
for them you had already fixed some dower, then what
much was agreed half of it is incumbent but if the
women forgo something or he gives more in whose hand
is the tied of the marriage, and O men your giving
more is nearer to' piety. And do not forget doing
good to each other among! Your selves. No doubt,
Allah is seeing your works.
Watch over all your prayers and the middle prayer
and stand before Allah with devotion.
And if you are in fear then, on foot or riding, as
you can, then when you are secure remember Allah as
He taught you that which you did not know.
And those of you who die and leave behind them
wives, they should bequeath for their women to
provide them maintenance for a year without turning
them out; then if they themselves leave, you are not
accountable regarding any proper thing which they
did in their matters and Allah is Dominant, Wise.
And for a divorced woman too there is proper
maintenance, it is incumbent on the God fearing
Thus Allah explains His signs for you so that you
O beloved! Had you not seen those who came out from
their homes and they were in thousands for fear of
death? Then Allah said to them. "Die" and thereafter
made them alive. No doubt, Allah is Gracious to
people but most of the people are ungrateful.
And fight in the way of Allah and know that Allah
Is there any who should give a goodly loan to Allah
so that Allah may increase many times for him. And
Allah scants and amplifies, and you are to return
O Beloved! Did you not see a group of the children
of Israel after Moosa? When they spoke to a prophet
of theirs, 'raise for us a king that we may fight in
the way of Allah'. The prophet told, 'Are your style
like this that if the fighting is made obligatory on
you, thereafter you may not fight'? Spoke they,
'what happened to us that we should not fight in the
way of Allah whereas we have been driven away from
our homeland and from our Children? But when
fighting was made obligatory! On them, they turned
their faces but a few of them, and Allah knows very
well the, unjust.
And their prophet said to them. 'Verily Allah has
sent Talut as your king.' Spoke they 'How can there
be kingship of him over us, whereas we are more
entitled for the kingship than he, and nor he has
been given abundance of wealth too'. Said the
prophet "Allah has chosen him over you, and has
increased him abundantly in knowledge and body, and
Allah gives His kingdom to whom He will and Allah is
And their prophet said to them: 'the sign of his
king ship is that there would come to you an ark in
which there is ranquility of hearts from your Lord,
and there are something left of the relics of the
respectable Moosa and the respectable Haroon, the
angels raising it would bring. No doubt, in it there
is great sign for you if you believe
When Talut aparted taking the armies from the City
spoke he: 'no doubt Allah is to test you with a
stream. Then whoso drinks he is not mine, and whose
drinks not, he is mine, but he who takes a sip with
his hand, then all drank of it except a few of them.
Again when Talut and the Muslim with him went across
the stream spoke, 'we have no power against Jalut
and his armies'. Those who were sure to meet Allah
spoke, 'that often a small party has triumphed over
a large party by Allah's Command, and Allah is with
Again when they came across Jalut and his armies,
they submitted: 'O our Lord pour forth steadfastness
upon us and make our steps firm, and help us against
Then they routed them by the Command of Allah and
Daud slew Jalut and Allah gave him Kingdom and
wisdom and taught him what He pleased. And if Allah
would not repel some of them by some others among
people, then necessarily the earth, would have been
ruined, but Allah is Munificent to entire, world.
These are the verses of. Allah, that O beloved! We
recite correctly to you and you are no doubt one of
These are messengers! That in them We caused one to
excel upon the other: to some of them Allah spoke:
and some one is he who was raised high in degrees
over-all, and We gave clear signs to Isa son of
Marium and aided him with holy spirit and had Allah
so willed, then those who came after them would not
have fought among themselves after the clear signs
had come to them. But they differed, some of them
remained faithful and some became disbeliveers and
if Allah so willed, they would not have fought; but
Allah does whatever He desires.
O Believers! Spend in the way of Allah out of what
We have given you before coming of the Day in which
there is neither trafficking not friendship and nor
intercession for infidels and the infidels are
themselves the persons unjust.
Allah is; none is to be worshiped save Him, He is
Himself Alive and Sustainer of others. Slumber
seizes Him not, nor sleep. To Him belongs whatsoever
is in the heavens and whatsoever in the earth. Who
is he that would intercede with Him save by His
leave. Knows He what is before them and what is
behind them and they get nothing of His knowledge
save what He desires. The heaven and earth are
contained in His Throne and their guarding is not a
burden for Him and He is the only Exalted, the
There is no compulsion in religion; no doubt the
virtuous path has become clearly distinct from the
erring; then whoso does not accept devil and
believes in Allah, he grasped a very firm knot which
is never to open and Allah Hears and Knows.
Allah is the Protector of Muslims; brings them out
from darkness towards light and the supporters of
infidels are devils, and they bring them forth from
light towards darkness. They are the people of hell,
they are to abide therein.
O Beloved (Prophet)! Had you not seen him who
quarrelled with Ibrahim about his Lord because Allah
gave him Kingdom? When Ibrahim said, my Lord is He
who gives life and causes death, said he, 'I give
life and cause death'. Ibrahim said, 'Well, Allah
brings sun from East: bring it you from the West.
'Thereupon the infidels were confounded and Allah
guides not the unjust people.
Or like him who passed by a town and it was laid
down fallen upon its roofs. Spoke he, 'How Allah
shall give life to it after its death. Then Allah
kept him died for a hundred years; then gave him
life. Said, He! 'How long you stayed here, submitted
he 'I would have stayed a full day or a little
less.' He said, 'No you have passed a hundred years,
and look at your food and drink; they are not
stinked as yet and look at your ass whose bones even
are not safe. And this is that We may make you a
sign for the people. And look at these bones how, We
set them up, then cover them with flesh. When this
matter became clear to him, said, 'I know very well
that Allah is Potent over all things.
And when Ibrahim submitted, 'O my Lord, show me how
You shall give life to the dead.' Said He, 'do you
not believe.' Submitted he, 'why not, but I like
that my heart may be at rest. 'Said He, 'then well,
taking four birds, make them familiar to you, then
put a part of each of them on each hill, thereafter
call them they will come to you running with their
feet. And know that Allah is Mighty, Wise.
The example of those who spend their wealth in the
way of Allah is like that of a grain which caused to
grow seven ears and in each ear one hundred grains
and Allah may increase more than that for whomsoever
He pleases; and Allah is Bountiful, All-knowing.
Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah,
then after spending neither boast of favours
conferred nor injure, their reward is with their
Lord, and they shall have no fear, nor any grief.
To speak kind word and to forgive is better than
that; charity followed by injury. And Allah is above
O Believers! Void not your charities by boasting of
your favours conferred and injuring, like him who
spent his wealth for showing to people and believes
not in Allah and Last Day. Then the example of him
is like that of a smooth rock on which is dust of
earth; now a heavy rain fell upon it leaving it a
bare stone. They shall have no control on anything
of what they have earned and Allah guides not the
And the example of those who spend their wealth in
seeking the pleasure of Allah and for strengthening
their hearts is like that garden which is on an
elevated ground; a heavy rain fell upon it then it
brought forth its fruits two fold; again if a heavy
rain reaches it not, then dew suffices. And Allah is
seeing what you do.
Would any one of you like it that he would have a
garden of dates and grapes beneath which rivers
would have been flowing; for him, there is every
kind of fruit in it, and old age came to him and he
has weak children, then came a whirlwind on it in
which there was fire, so it was burnt? Thus Allah
explains to you His signs, so that you may ponder.
O Believers! Give something of your pure earnings
and of what We produce from the earth for you; and
intend not to give especially vile of it, whereas if
you get of it, you will not accept unless you close
your eyes in it. And know that Allah is free of all
The devil dreads you of destitution and commands you
of lewdness, and Allah promises you forgiveness and
abundance. And Allah is All-Embracing All-Knowing.
Allah grants wisdom to whom He pleases and he who
got wisdom indeed got abundant good; and none
accepts counsel but men of under" standing.
And whatsoever you spend or vows Allah knows it and
the unjust have no helpers.
If you give charity openly then what a good thing it
is; and if you give to beggars hidingly it is better
for you than every thing, and He will remove some of
your sins. And Allah is Aware of what you do.
To guide them is not your responsibility; yes Allah
guides whomsoever He pleases. And whatsoever good
thing you give it is for your own good, and it is
not proper for you to spend but for seeking pleasure
of Allah and whatever of wealth you give, you will
get back in full and you shall not be wronged.
For those beggars who are detained in the way of
Allah, they cannot move about in the earth. The
ignorant man thinks them wealthy because of their
restraint. You shall recognise them from their
faces; they do not beg of men importunately. And
whatever you give in charity Allah knows it.
Those who spend their wealth (in charity) in the
night and in the day secretly and openly. They have
their reward with their Lord. There is neither any
fear nor any grief to them.
Those who devour interest shall not stand on the Day
of judgement, but like the standing of one whom the
evil spirit has by touching made mad. This is
because they said 'The trade too is like interest,'
and Allah made trade lawful and made interest
unlawful. So he, who received admonition from his
Lord and refrained, then whatever he took before is
lawful to him, and his affair is with Allah. And now
whoever shall commit such. Fault, they are men of
hell, they will live therein for longer period.
Allah destroys interest and increases charity and
Allah loves not any ungrateful big sinner.
No doubt, those who accepted faith and did good
deeds and established prayer and paid the Zakat,
(poor-due) their reward is with their Lord and there
is neither any fear nor any grief to them.
O Believers! Fear Allah and leave what remains of
interest if you are Muslims.
But if you do not do like this, then be sure of war
from Allah and the Messenger of Allah. And if you
repent then take your principal sums, neither you
wrong any one nor be wronged yourselves.
And if the debtor is a man in hardship then give him
time till it is easy, and to remit the debt fully is
better for you if you know.
And fear the day in which you shall be made to
return to Allah and shall every soul be paid in full
what it has earned and they shall not be wronged.
O Believers! When you enter in the transaction of
any debt for a fixed period, then write it down. And
a scribe should write between you justly; and the
scribe should not refuse to write as he has been
taught by Allah, then he should write and let him on
whom. The liability falls dictate and fear Allah Who
is his Lord and leaves not behind something out of
the liability. Then again he on whom liability falls
be of low understanding or be weak or be unable to
dictate; then let his guardian dictate justly. And
make two witnesses from among your men, then if two
men be not available then a man and two women such
witnesses, as you like, so that either of the two
women errs in memory, then the other may remind to
that one. And when the witnesses are called, they
should not refuse to come. And do not take it as a
burden, the liability be it small or big, write it
down along with its fixed period. It is juster in
the sight of Allah, in it the evidence will be more
suitable and it is nearer to it that you may not be
in doubt; save a ready merchandise which you give or
take from hand to hand, there is no sin on you, if
you write it not. And when you trade, make
witnesses. And neither any scribe be harmed nor the
witness (or neither the scribe do harm nor the
witness). And if you do such then it would be your
insubordination. And fear Allah and Allah teaches
you and Allah knows everything.
And if you are on a journey, and you find not a
scribe then let there be pledge with possession. And
if in between you one entrusts the other, then let
he whom he trusted deliver his trust and fear Allah
Who is his Lord and conceal not evidence; and
whosoever would conceal evidence, then his heart is
sinful from inside, and Allah knows your deeds.
To Allah belongs what" ever is in the heaven and
whatever is in the earth; and if you disclose
whatever is in your heart or keep it hidden, Allah
will call you to account for it; then He will
forgive whomsoever He pleases and punish whomsoever
He pleases, and Allah is Potent over every thing.
The Messenger believed in that which was sent down
to him from his Lord and the believers all accepted
Allah and His angels and His Books and His
messengers saying this, 'that we do not
differentiate in the matter of having faith in any
of His messengers' and submitted that we heard and
obeyed. Let there be your forgiveness, O our Lord!
And to you is our return.
Allah places not burden on any soul but to the
extent of his strength whatever good it earned is
useful for it and whatever bad it earned is a loss
for it. O our Lord! Catch not us if we forget or
miss the mark! O our Lord! And place not heavy
burden on us as you had placed on those before us. O
our Lord! Put not that burden on us of which we have
no strength to bear! And pardon us and forgive and
have mercy on us. You are our Master; then help us
against the infidels.
