ALLAH in the name of The
Most Affectionate, the Merciful.
All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth glorifies
Allah; and He is the Esteemed, the Wise.
It is He Who expelled the infidels of the Book from their homes
for their first assemblage, you did not imagine that they would go
forth and they thought that their fortresses would defend them
against Allah. But the command of Allah came to them from whence
they reckoned not, and it cast terror into their hearts that they
destroy their dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the
muslims. Therefore, take heed, O you, with eyes!
And had it not been that Allah had decreed for them to be uprooted
from their homes He would have punished them in this world. And
for them is a torment of Fire in the Hereafter.
This because they resisted Allah and His Messenger and whoso
resists Allah and His Messenger - then undoubtedly, the torment of
Allah is severe.
Whatever trees you cut down or left standing upon their roots,
that was all by the leave of Allah and that He might disgrace the
And whatever spoils Allah gave to His Messenger from them, you
rushed neither horse nor camel upon it, yes, but Allah gives
control to His Messenger over whomsoever He please. And Allah can
Whatsoever spoils Allah gave to His Messenger from the people of
the cities is for Allah and His Messenger and for the near
relation, and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, so that it
be not the wealth of your rich. And whatsoever the Messenger gives
you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain from that.
And fear Allah; undoubtedly, the torment of Allah is severe.
For those poor refugees who were driven out from their homes and
their possessions seeking grace of Allah and His pleasure, and
helping Allah and His Messenger. They are the truthful.
And those who had established their home in this city and in faith
from before, love those who emigrated to them, and find not in
their breasts, any need for what they have been given and prefer
them above their souls, even though they be badly in need of, and
whoso is guarded against the avarice of his own soul, those they
are the successful.
And those who came after them submit, O our Lord! Forgive us and
our brothers who preceded us in the faith, and put not into our
hearts any rancour towards those who believe. O our Lord!
Undoubtedly, you are the Beneficent the Merciful.
Have you not seen the hypocrites? They say to their brothers, the
infidels of the Book, 'if you are turned out' we will surely go
with you, and will never obey anyone against you, and if you are
fought against, we will surely help you. And Allah witnesses that
they are liars.
If they are turned out, they will not go forth with them, and if
they are fought against, they will not help them. Even if they
helped them. They would then run away turning their backs and then
they shall not be helped.
Undoubtedly, they have greater fear of you in their hearts than of
Allah. This is because they are a people having no understanding.
They shall not even fight against you all together, but in
fortified cities or from behind walls. Their velour is severe
among themselves. You will think them as united gang, but their
hearts are scattered. This is because they are a people having no
They are like those who were just a short time before them. They
tasted the evil consequences of their doings, and for them is the
Like Satan (devil) when he said to man, 'disbelieve', and then
when he disbelieved, he said, 'I am quit of you, I fear Allah the
Lord of the entire world'.
And the end of both was this, that they both are in fire, abiding
therein. And such is the punishment of the unjust.
'O believers! Fear Allah and let every soul should see that what
it sent forth for the morrow' and fear Allah. Undoubtedly Allah is
aware of your doings.
And be not like those who have already forgotten Allah, and so He
put them in distress that they may not remember their own souls.
It is they that are disobedients.
The inhabitants of the Fire and the inhabitants of the Paradise
are not equal. The inhabitants of the Paradise they attained to
If We had sent down this Quran upon any mountain, you would
certainly have seen it humbled and split asunder for fear of
Allah. And those examples, We profound for mankind that they may
He is Allah, besides Whom there is none to be worshipped, the
Knower of everything hidden and open. He is the Most Affectionate,
He is Allah, besides Whom none is to be worshipped the Sovereign,
the most Holy, the Bestower of peace, the Giver of Security, the
Protector, the Esteemed one, the Exalted the Majestic. Glory is to
Allah from what they associate.
He is Allah, the Makers the Creater, the Bestower of form to
everyone. His are all good names; all that is in the heavens and
the earth glorifies Him: and He is the Esteemed One the Wise.
