ALLAH in the
name of The Most Affectionate, the Merciful.
Alif. Lam Mim.
Allah is. Beside Whom none is to be worshiped.
Self-Living, Sustainer of others.
He sent down to you this true Book, confirming
preceding Books, and He sent down Tawrat and Injil
A for time guiding the people and sent down the
criterion; No doubt, for those who denied the Signs
of Allah is the severe torment and Allah the Mighty,
is Possessor of the power of retribution.
Nothing is hidden from Allah, neither in the earth
nor in the heaven.
It is He Who forms your shape in the wombs of the
mothers as He pleases. Besides Whom none is to be
worshiped the Dominant, the Wise.
It is He Who sent down upon you the Book, in which
some verses have clear meaning, they are the
substance of the Book, and others are those, in the
meaning of which there is doubt. Those in whose
hearts there is perversity pursue doubtful one
desiring deviation and searching their own viewpoint
of it, and its right interpretation is known to
Allah alone. And those of firm knowledge say, 'We
believed in it, all is from our Lord and none accept
admonition save men of understanding.
'O our Lord! Let not our hearts become perverse
after this that You guided us and bestow on us mercy
from Yourself; no doubt, You are the big Bestower.
'O our Lord! No doubt You are the assembler of all
people for the Day in which there is no doubt.
Undoubtedly the promise of Allah changes not.
No doubt, those who became infidels; their riches
and their children shall avail them nothing against
Allah and it is they who are the fuel of the hell.
Like the people of Pharaohs and those before them,
they belied our Signs; then Allah seized them for
their sins and Allah's punishment is severe.
Say to the disbeliveers, 'soon you shall be overcome
and be driven towards the hell and that is an evil
No doubt, there was a sign for you in two groups
that encountered among themselves. One gang fighting
in the way of Allah and the other disbeliveers that
they understood them double of themselves in their
eyesight; and Allah strengthens with His help whom
He pleases. No doubt, in it there is teaching after
seeing for the men of understanding.
Adorned for men is the love of these lusts, women
and children and the stored up heaps of gold and
silver and branded horses and cattle and crops. This
is the capital of living world; and it is Allah with
Whom there is an excellent destination.
Say you 'shall I inform you of something better than
that.' For pious ones there are gardens with their
Lord beneath which rivers flow therein shall they
abide, and pure wives and Allah's pleasure. And
Allah sees His bondsmen.
Those who say, 'Our Lord we did accept faith, then
forgive us our sins and save us from the torment of
The steadfast and truthful and humble and those who
spend in the way of Allah and those who seek
forgiveness in the latter part of the night.
Allah bore witness that none is to be worshiped save
He, and the angels and the men of learning (too)
standing with justice; none is to be worshiped save
He, the most Reverend, Wise.
Verily, only Islam is the Din (Religion) before
Allah, and the men of Book did not dissent but after
the knowledge had come to them, because of their
hearts burning. And whoso denies the signs of Allah;
then no doubt Allah is to call to account very soon.
Again O beloved! If they argue with you, then say 'I
have submitted my face before Allah and those who
followed me; and say to the men of Books and to
those who read not; 'have you submitted'? Hence if
they submit, then they got the guidance and if turn
their faces, then upon you it is only to convey the
message, and Allah is seeing His bondsmen.
Those who deny the signs of Allah, and slay the
Prophets unjustly and kill the men ordering justice;
give them good tiding of painful torment.
These are they whose deeds have perished in this
world and the next and they shall have no helpers.
Have you not observed those given a portion of the
Book are being called to the Book of Allah that it
may judge between them, then a faction of them turns
away being opposed to it?
This boldness came to them because they say, 'The
fire shall not touch us except for a number of
days'; and the lies which they used to invent
deceived them in their religion.
Then how will it be, when We shall gather them for a
Day in which there is no doubt; and every soul shall
be paid in full what it has earned and they shall
not be wronged.
Say like this, 'O Allah Master of the Kingdom, You
give the Kingdom to whom You please; and seize the
Kingdom from whom You please. And you exalt whom You
please and You abase whom You please; in Your hand
is all good. No doubt You can do all things.
You cause the night to enter into day and cause the
day to enter into night, and bring forth the living
from the dead and bring forth the dead from the
living, and provide whomsoever You please with out
Let not the Muslims takes infidels as their friends
besides the Muslims and whosoever shall do that he
has no connection with Allah, but this that have
some fear of them; and Allah cautions you from His
wrath; and unto Allah is the return.
Say, you, 'whether you conceal what is in your
hearts or declare it, Allah knows all; and knows
whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the
earth. And Allah has the authority over every
The day when every soul shall find presented
whatever it did of good and whatever it did of evil;
it will long, would there be a far distance between
it and me. And Allah warns you of His torment; and
Allah is Kind enough over His bondsmen.
'O beloved! Say you, 'O people! If you love Allah,
then follow me; Allah will love you and forgive your
sins and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Say you, 'Obey Allah and the messenger; then if they
turn their faces, then Allah loves not the infidels.
No doubt, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family
of Ibrahim and the family of Imran from over the
It is a race from one another. And Allah Hears and
When the wife of Imran said, My lord! 'I make a vow
to You, for what is in my womb to remain purely in
Your service. There fore accept this from me, no
doubt, You alone are Hearing, Knowing.
Then when she gave birth to her, she said, 'O my
Lord I have given Birth to a female. And Allah knows
well whatever she had given birth to and that male
whom she demanded was not like this female and I
have named her Mary, and I give her and her
off-spring under Your protection from Satan the
Therefore her Lord accepted her graciously and
caused her to grow an excellent growth and gave her
under the guardianship of 'Zakaria'. Whenever
Zakaria went to her place of prayer, he found new
provision with her. He said! O Mary! Whence came
this to you? She spoke, 'that is from Allah,' No
doubt, Allah gives whomsoever He pleases without
Here Zakaria called his Lord, said, 'O my Lord! Give
me from Yourself pure offspring; no doubt, You only
are the Hearer of prayers.
Then the angels called him and he was offering
prayer standing at his place of worship, no doubt
Allah gives you glad tidings of Yahya who shall
confirm a word from Allah, a chief and chaste and
prophet from amongst Our righteous.
Said, 'O my Lord! From where shall I have a son,
while the old age has reached to me and my wife is
barren'. Said, 'Allah does so whatever He pleases'.
Submitted he, O my Lord! 'Appoint a token for me'
Said, your token is this that you shall not speak to
people for three days but with signals, and remember
your Lord much and praise Him at a time nearing
sunset and at dawn.
And when the angels said, 'O Mary; verily Allah has
chosen you and purified well ' and today has chosen
you from amongst the women of all worlds'.
'O Mary! Stand before your Lord humbly and prostrate
for Him and bow down with those who bow down.
These are the tidings of unseen that We reveal to
you in secret. And you were not with them when they
drew lots with their pen that under whose
guardianship Mary should be given, and you were not
with them when they were disputing.
And remember when the angels said to Mary, 'O Mary!
Allah gives you glad tidings of a word from Him,
whose name is Masih, Isa son of Mary, he shall be
dignified in the world and the Hereafter and of
those nearest to Allah.
And he shall talk to the people in the cradle and in
the ripe age (Maturity) and shall be of the

no person has touched me. Said He, "Allah creates in
such a way what He pleases". When He decrees any
thing, then He only says to it 'Be! And it is.
And Allah will teach him the Book and wisdom and the
Taurat and Injeel.
And he shall be a Messenger towards the children of
Israel saying this, 'I have brought to you a sign
from your Lord; that I make a form out of clay like
a bird for you then again breathe in it and it
becomes a bird atonce by the command of Allah; and I
heal the born blind and the leper and I make the
dead alive by the command of Allah and tell to you
whatever you eat and what you store in your houses.
No doubt, in these things there is a great sign for
you if you believe.
And I have come confirming the book Taurat that was
before me; and for this that I should make lawful
some of those things which were forbidden to you;
and I have brought to you a sign from your Lord then
fear Allah and obey my command.
No doubt Allah is the Lord of me, of yours, of all
so worship Him only. This is the straight path.
Then again when Isa found infidelity in them, said,
'who become my helpers towards Allah'. The disciples
said, 'We are the helpers of the religion of God; We
have believed in Allah and bear you witness that we
'O our Lord! 'We believe in what you have sent down
and followed the Messenger, then write us among
those who bear witness on truth.'
And the infidels plotted and Allah secretly devised
for their destruction and Allah is the best of
Remember, when Allah said; O Isa! I shall cause you
to reach to your full life and I shall raise you
towards Myself and I shall purify you from the
infidels, and shall give your followers superiority
over the rejecters until the Day of Resurrection
then you all shall come returning to Me: then I
shall decide between you concerning that wherein you
Then those who became infidels, I shall torment them
with severe punishment in this world and the next
and they shall have no helpers.
And to those who believed and did good deeds, Allah
will pay them their rewards in full and the unjust
are not acceptable to Allah.
Thus, We recite to you of some signs and wise
The likeness of Isa with Allah, is like Adam. He
created him of dust, then said, 'Be and 'he' was
'O Listener! This is the truth from your Lord; be
not therefore of doubters.
Then O beloved! Whoever disputes with you about Isa
after knowledge has come to you, then tell them,
'come, let us call our sons and your sons our women
and your women and our souls and your souls, then
let us pray earnestly, and so lay the curse of Allah
upon the liars.'
This verily is the true Narrative; There is none
worthy of worship save Allah; and verily only Allah
is All Mighty, the All Wise.
Then if they turn back their faces, then Allah knows
the mischief mongers.
Say you, O people of the Book! Come towards such a
word which is common between us and you, that is we
worship none but Allah and associate no partner with
Him; and none of us make one another as Lord beside
Allah; then if they do not accept then say, 'bear
witness that we are Muslims.'
'O people of the Book! Why do you dispute about
Ibraham? The Torah and Injil (Gospel) were not sent
down, but after him, then have you no reason?
Behold! you are those who disputed in that of which
you had knowledge, then why you dispute in that of
which you have no knowledge, and Allah knows and you
Abraham was neither a Jew nor Christian but was a
Muslim separate from every falsehood and was not of
Verily, the more rightful claimant of Abraham than
all people were those who followed him and this
prophet and the believers, And Allah is the
Protector of the believers.
A section of the people of the Book yearns that in
any way you go astray and they make astray to
themselves and they have no sense.
'O people of the Book! Why do you deny the signs of
Allah, whereas you are yourselves witnesses.
'O people of the Book! Why do you confound truth
with falsehood and why do you conceal the truth
whereas you have knowledge?
A section of the people of the Book said, 'believe
in that which has been sent down upon the believers
at morning and deny at evening; perchance they may
And believe not any but. Him who is the follower of
your religion. Say you, 'The guidance of Allah is
the only guidance of Allah. That may be given to any
one the like of that was given to you', or anyone
might argue you before your Lord. Say, you, 'the
bounty is in the hand of Allah alone; He gives it to
whomsoever He pleases; and Allah is All-Embracing
He singles out with His mercy whomsoever He pleases
and Allah is of exceeding bounty.
Among the people of the Book there is someone with
whom if you keep a huge treasure in trust then he
will pay it back to you, and in them there is
someone, with whom if you keep in trust a single
dinar then he will not repay it to you, except when
you remain standing over his head. It is because
they say, 'there is no responsibility over us in the
matter of illiterates. And they utter a lie against
Yes, why not, one who fulfilled his pledge and
feared God and verily, Allah loves those who fear
Those who accept mean price in exchange of their
covenant with Allah and their oaths, they have no
portion in the Hereafter, and Allah will neither
speak to them nor look towards them or Resurrection
Day, nor will He purify them; and for them there is
And among them some are those who distort the Book
by twisting their tongues; that you may think it is
also in the Book, and that is not in the Book. And
they say, 'It is from Allah, whereas it is not from
Allah and they forge a lie against Allah purposely
It is not the right of any man that Allah should
give him the Book and command and prophet hood, then
he should say to people, 'Be my bondmen leaving

because you teach the Book and because you study
And He would not order you this that you should take
the angels and prophets as God. Would He order you
to infidelity after it that you have become Muslims?
And remember when Allah took from the prophets their
covenant whatever I should give you of the Book and
wisdom then comes to you the Messenger confirming
your Books, then assuredly you shall believe in him
and assuredly you help him. He said, 'do you agree,
and do you accept My heavy responsibility on it. All
submitted 'We did affirm, He said, 'then be witness
against one another and I am myself among witnesses
Now whoso turns away after this, then they are the
Then, do they like a religion other than the
religion of Allah? And to Him has submitted whoso is
in the heavens and the earth, willingly and
unwillingly, and to Him shall they be returned.
Say like this, 'that We believed in Allah and in
that which was sent down to us and in that which Was
sent down to Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaque and
Yaqoob and his children and that which was given to
Moosa and Isa and prophets from their Lord. We make
no distinction between any of them in believing and
to Him we have bowed down our necks.
And whoso will desire for a religion other than
Islam that shall never be accepted from him and in
the next world he shall be among the losers.
How Allah shall wish to guide such a people who
disbelieved after believing and had borne witness
that the Messenger is true and to whom had come
clear signs? And Allah guides not a people unjust.
Their meed is this that on them there is curse of
Allah, and of angels and of men, all together.
They should abide thereunder. Neither the torment
shall be lightened from over them and nor shall they
But those who repented thereafter and amended
themselves, then necessarily, Allah is Forgiving,
No doubt, those who disbelieved after believing then
again wax in infidelity, their repentance shall
never be accepted and these are they who have gone
Those who disbelieved and died as infidels, there
shall never be accepted an earth full of gold from
anyone of them, though he offers it in ransom for
himself. There is painful torment for them, and they
shall have no helpers.
You shall never attain good unless you spend your
favourite things; and Allah knows whatever you
All food was lawful to the children of Israel; save
what Yaqoob had made unlawful for himself before the
Taurah wee sent down. Say you, bring the Taurat and
read it if you are truthful?
Then after that, whose forges lie against Allah,
those are the persons unjust.
Say you, 'Allah is true therefore follow the
religion of Ibraham Who was separate from every
falsehood, and was not of the polytheists.
Verily, the first House among all marked for the
worship o, the people is that which is in Mecca
abounding in blessing and a guide of all world.
Therein are clear sighs; the place where Ibraham
stood and whosoever enters it, is in security. And
for the sake of Allah, the people is to perform
pilgrimage to this House, who could find a way
thither. And who denies, then Allah is independent
of entire world.
Say you, 'O people of Book! Why not you accept the
signs of Allah while your works are before Allah.
Say you, 'O people of the Book! Why do you hinder
those who accepted the faith from the path of Allah,
you desire to crook it and you are yourself witness
thereof? And Allah is not unaware of your doings.
'O believers! If you obey some of the people of the
Book, then they would render you infidels after your

you are recited the signs of Allah; and in your

sought the support of Allah has been directed to a
'O believers! Fear Allah, as rightly He is to be
feared, and do not die ever save as Muslims.
And hold fast, all together, by the rope of Allah,
and be not divided among themselves. And remember
Allah's favour upon you. Remember when there was
enmity among you, He joined your hearts together
then, by His grace, you became brothers together and
you were upon the brink of a pit of Fire, then He
rescued you from it; Thus Allah explains to you His
signs; that haply you may act guidance.
And let there be such a group among you, that they
may call towards goodness and command what is just
and forbid evil. And the very same attained to their

bright signs had come to them and for them there is
On the day when some faces shall be white, and some
black. Then those whose faces: have been blackened,
(they will be told) 'did you become infidels after
accepting faith? Then now taste the torment, the
recompense of your infidelity.
And as for those, whose faces are whitened, they are
under the mercy of Allah; they shall abide in it.
These are the signs of Allah that We recite unto you
correctly, and Allah intends not injustice to the
people of the worlds.
And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and
whatever is in the earth and unto Allah is the
return of all matters.
You are the best among all those nations appeared
unto mankind, you command! To good, and forbid evil,
and keep faith unto Allah. Had the people of the
Book believed, then it was good for them. Some of
them are Muslims and most of them are infidels.
They will not harm you save annoying; and if they
fight with you, they will turn their backs from you,
then again they will not be helped.
Ignominy has been pitched on them, wherever they
are, they shill get no security save a rope from
Allah and a rope from men, (they may get
protection). They became worthy of the wrath of
Allah and on them destitution have been pitched.
This is because they used to reject the signs of
Allah and slay the prophets unjustly. This is
because they were disobedient and transgressors.
All are not alike. Among the people of the Book some
are those who stand right, recite the signs of Allah
in the hours of night and prostrate.
They believe in Allah and the Last Day and command
good and forbid evil and run for good works, and
they are righteous.
And those who will do good, their rights shall not
be denied and Allah knows the God fearing.
Those who became infidels, their riches and children
shall not avail them at all against Allah and they
are the men of hell and shall abide therein.
The example of that which they spend in the life of
this world is like a wind in which there is intense
cold; that strikes the harvest of such a nation
which wronged themselves, therefore it destroyed
that, and Allah wronged them not, but yes, they
wrong unto their own souls.
'O believers! Do not make strangers as your
confidants; they leave no stone unturned in harming
you. They yearn for what distresses you: Hostility
appeared from their utterances and what they have
concealed in their breasts is yet greater. We have
made you hear Our signs clearly, if you have wisdom.
Behold, it is you who love them, and they love you
not. Though you believe in all the Books. And when
they meet you, they say, 'we accepted faith', and
when they are alone, then they bite their fingertips
at you out of wrath. Say you, die in your passion'
Allah knows well the thoughts of the hearts.
Anything good befall you it vexes them; and an evil
be fall you, then they are happy at it, and if you
have patience. And fear Allah, then their guile will
not hurt you at all. Verily, their all doings are

This is to state to people and to guide and is
admonition to those who are pious.
And be not sluggish and neither be grieved, you are
the very same who shall overcome if you have faith.
If any distress has come to you, then they too have
already received a similar distress. These are the

the believes and may assign some of you the position

And so that Allah may purify the Muslims and wipe
out the infidels.
Are you in this supposition that you shall enter the
paradise and yet Allah has not tested your warriors
and neither has experimented the steadfast?
And you used to long for death before meeting it, so

And Muhammad is only a Messenger. There have been

'O believers! If you follow the line of infidels,
then they will turn you upon your heels, and you

to you when you were killing the infidels by His
leave, until when you showed weakness and quarrelled
about the order and Dis-obeyed after He had shown
you the thing you desired for. Of you some one
desired the world and of you some one desired the
Hereafter, then He turned your faces from them that
He might; test you; and no doubt, He forgive you and
Allah is Bounteous over Muslims.
When you were going up and did not look back towards
anyone and Our Messenger was calling you in another
group, therefore He gave you, sorrow in recompense
for a sorrow, and forgave in order that you might
not grieve for what sent out of your hand and what
befell you. And Allah is informed of your doings
Then after sorrow, He sent down to you slumber that
had surrounded a party of you, and another party was
anxious about themselves, suspected of Allah
unjustly; like the suspicion of Ignorance. They say,
'Have we any power in this affair'? Say you, 'entire
authority is of Allah. They conceal in their hearts
that they reveal not unto you; they say, 'if we had
any power, then we would not have been killed here."
Say you, 'If you had been in your houses, even then
those for whom killing was already written would
have gone forth to the place of their slaughter; and
in order that Allah might test the feelings of your
breasts, and whatever is in your hearts might purge
it. Allah knows the thoughts of your hearts.
No doubt, those of you who turned back on the day
when two armies met. It was Satan who made them slip
because of their certain actions, and surely Allah
forgave them. Verily, Allah is Forgiving, Gentle.
'O believers! Be not like those infidels who told
about their brothers when went on journey or on holy
war; that had they been with us, they would not have
died and not been slain, in order that Allah may
make it a cause of regret in their hearts. And Allah
gives life and causes death and Allah is seeing your
And undoubtedly, if you are slain in the way of
Allah or die, then the forgiveness of Allah and His
mercy are better than their entire wealth.
And if you die or be slain, certainly you are to

Then, it is of the mercy of Allah that O beloved!
You became gentle for them and if you had been hot
headed, hard hearted, then they certainly would have
dispersed from your circle, so pardon them and
intercede for them and consult them in the affairs;

trustful are dear to Allah.

He forsakes you, then who is such that can help you

It cannot be thought about any prophet that he hides
away something and whatever he hides away, he shall
come with his hidden thing on the Day of
Resurrection; then every soul shall be paid in full
what it has earned, and there shall be no injustice
Will then he who follows the pleasure of Allah be
like him who has earned the wrath of Allah and his
abode is hell? And what a bad place of returns it
They are according to their ranks near Allah and
Allah sees their works.
Undoubtedly, Allah did a great favour to the Muslims
that in them from among themselves sent a Messenger
who recites unto them His signs and purifies them
and teaches them the Book and wisdom, and
necessarily before that they were certainly in
What! When any calamity reaches you, though double
of which you had caused to reach (to them), you
began to say, "Whence it came". Say you; 'It is from
your own side'. Undoubtedly Allah can do everything.
And that calamity which befell you on the day the
two armies had met was by Allah's leave, and thus He
might make known the believers.
And that He might make one to distinguish the
hypocrites and it was said to them, "come, fight in
the way of Allah or drive out the enemy". They said,
"If we knew fighting, then certainly we would have
sided you." And they on that day were nearer to
apparent infidelity than to expressed faith. They
say with their mouths, what is not in their hearts.
And Allah knows what they are concealing.
Those who said about their brothers and while them
selves remained behind, 'Had they obeyed us, they
would not have been killed.' Say you, 'then avert
your own death if you are truthful.'
And those who have been slain in the way of Allah
never think of them as dead; but they are alive with
their Lord, get their subsistence.
They are happy because of that which Allah has
bestowed upon them of His Bounty and are rejoicing
for their successors who have not yet joined them
that on them there is not any fear, nor any grief.
They rejoice at the favour of Allah and His bounty,
and that Allah wastes not the reward of Muslims.
Those who responded to the call of Allah and
Messenger after the wound had smitten them There is
great reward for their righteous and reverent
Those to whom people said, 'the people have gathered
against you, 'therefore fear them; but this
increased their faith and said, 'Allah is sufficient
for us and what an excellent Disposer of Affairs.

His Bounty, no evil touched them and followed the

Allah is not to leave the Muslims in the present
state of affairs in which you are, until He
separates unpure from the pure. (Wicked from the
good) And it is not befitting to the dignity of
Allah that O general people! He let you know the

messengers whom He pleases. Then believe in Allah
and His messengers. And if you accept faith and
fear, then there is great reward for you.
And let not those who are niggardly with respect to
what Allah has given them out of His bounty think

Those who say, 'Allah has covenanted with us that we
believe not in any messenger until he brings an
order of such sacrifice which the fire consumes; say
you, 'Many messengers came to you before me bearing
clear signs and with this order which you speak of,
then why did you kill them, if you are truthful?
Then O beloved! If they belie you even, so the
messengers before you, who had come bearing clear
signs and the scriptures and the shining Book have
already been belied.
Every soul is to taste the death; and you will get
your compensation in full only on the Day of
Resurrection. Whosoever is saved from the Fire and

Undoubtedly, you shall certainly be tested in your
property and in your lives. And undoubtedly, you
shall certainly hear a good deal of bad things from
the people of the Book before you and from
idolaters. But if you endure and guard yourselves

And remember when Allah took a covenant from those
who were given the Book that, 'you shall necessarily
make it known to the people and congeal it not, but
they threw it behind their backs, and took a mean

Never think of those who rejoice on their doings and
wish that they may be praised without doing. Never
think of such people away from the torment and for
them is the painful torment.
And to Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and
earth; and Allah is Potent over every thing.
Undoubtedly, in the creation of heavens and earth
and in the mutual alternation of night and day,
there are signs for men of understanding.
Who remember Allah standing and sitting and lying on
their sides, and contemplate in the creation of
heavens and earth; (saying) "O our Lord! You have
not made it invain, Hallowed be You, You save us
from the torment of the Hell.
'O our Lord! Verily whomsoever you cause to enter
the Hell, him You have surely humiliated, and the
unjust have no helpers.
'O our Lord! We heard a proclaimer that he calls for

Allah. And with Allah only there is good reward.
'O Listener! Let not deceive you the strutting about

But those who fear their Lord, for them there are
gardens beneath which flow rivers. They shall abide
therein; an entertainment from Allah and that, which

And undoubtedly, some among the men of the Book are
such that they believe in Allah and in what has been
sent to you and what have been sent down to them,
