60: Al-Mumtahinah (Examining Her)
Revealed at: Madinah
Total Verses: 13
- 'O believers! Take not for friends My
and your enemies, you deliver the news to them in friendship,
while they are deniers of the truth that has come to you, and
drive out the Messenger and yourselves from homes because you
believe in Allah, your Lord. If you have come out in my path to
struggle and to seek My pleasure, take them not for friends; you
send them secret message of love, while I know well what you
conceal and what you reveal. And whoever of you does so, has,
undoubtedly, gone astray from the straight path.
- If they get hold of you, they will be your enemies and will
stretch forth their hands and their tongues towards you with evil,
and they desire that you should anyhow become disbelievers.
- Never will profit you, neither your kind-red nor your children
on the Day of Judgement. He shall separate you from them. And
Allah is seeing your doings.
- Undoubtedly, there was a good example to follow for you in
Ibrahim and his companions, when they said to their people,
'undoubtedly' we are quit of you and that you worship beside
Allah, we deny you', and there has appeared enmity and hatred
between us and you for ever; until you believe in one Allah, but
the saying of Ibrahim to his father 'I will surely ask forgiveness
for you, and I have no authority for your any favour against
Allah. O our Lord! In You do we put our trust and to You do we
turn, and to You is the final return.
- 'O our Lord! Put not us in a trial of those who disbelieve,
and forgive us our Lord, undoubtedly You are the Esteemed one,
- Undoubtedly, there was a good example in them for you for him
who has hope in Allah and the Last Day. And whosoever turns away,
then undoubtedly Allah is self-sufficient, All-Praised.
- It is near that Allah may create friendship between you and
those of them who are your enemies. And Allah is All Powerful, and
- Allah forbids you not regarding those who have not fought
against you in religion and expelled you not from your homes, that
you may show favour to them and act justly towards them.
Undoubtedly, the just are loved by Allah.
- Allah only forbids you regarding those who have fought against
you in religion or expelled you from your homes or have helped
others in driving you out, that you should take them for friends,
and whosoever takes them for friends, they are the oppressors.
- 'O believers! When muslim women come to you from pagan
territory leaving their homes, test them. Allah knows better as to
their faith, then if you know them to be believing women, return
them not to the infidels. Neither those women are lawful to them
nor they are lawful to them. And give their unbeliever husbands
what they have spent, and there is no blame on you if you marry
them when you pay them their dowries. And have not firm hold to
the matrimonial ties with the unbelieving women and ask back what
you have spent and the infidels should ask for what they have
spent. This is the order of Allah. He judges between you. And
Allah is All Knowing, Wise.
- And if some women go away from the custody of muslims to the
disbelievers, then you punish the disbelievers, and give from the
spoils to those whose women have gone away the like of that which
they had spent. And fear Allah in Whom you believe.
- 'O Prophet! When muslim women come to you for taking oath of
allegiance at your hands, that they will not associate anything
with Allah, and they will not commit theft, and will not commit
adultery and nor kill their children, and nor will bring a calumny
forging it between their hands and feet (regarding birth) and will
not disobey you in anything good, then accept their allegiance and
beg Allah to forgive them. Undoubtedly Allah is Forgiving.
- 'O believers! Take not as friends those upon whom is Allah's
wrath. They are indeed despaired of the Hereafter as the infidels
are despaired of the inmate of the graves.
