Allah‘s purity has been proclaimed by all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And He is the All-Mighty, the
He is the One who expelled the disbelievers of the People of the Book from their homes at the time of the first
gathering. You did not expect that they would leave, and they deemed that their fortresses would protect them from
Allah. But Allah came to them from where they did not expect, and cast fear in their hearts when they were spoiling
their homes with their own hands and with the hands of the believers. So, learn a lesson, O you who have eyes to see.
If Allah had not destined exile for them, He would have punished them in the world. And for them in the Hereafter is the
torment of the Fire.
That is because they were hostile to Allah and His Messenger. And whoever has hostility with Allah (must know that)
Allah is severe in punishment.
Whatever palm-trees you have cut down, or have left them standing on their roots, it was with Allah‘s permission, and
so that He might disgrace the transgressors.
And whatever fai‘ (left over property) Allah has passed on to His Messenger from them, you had not urged on your
horses or camels for it, but Allah gives predominance to His messengers over whomsoever He wills, and Allah is
Powerful over every thing.
Whatever fai‘ Allah has passed on to His Messenger from the people of the towns is for Allah and for the Messenger,
and for the kinsmen and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, so that it may not circulate only between the rich
among you. And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you from, abstain (from it). And
fear Allah. Indeed Allah is severe in punishment.
(And fai‘ is especially) for the poor emigrants who were expelled from their homes and properties, while they were
seeking Allah‘s grace and pleasure, and were helping (the religion of) Allah and His Messenger. They are the truthful.
And (fai‘ is also) for those who established themselves in the homeland (of Madinah) and in faith before the former
ones (arrived in Madinah), who have love for those who emigrated to them, and do not feel in their hearts any ambition
for what is given to the former ones (from fai‘), and give preference (to them) over themselves, even though they are in
poverty. __And those who are saved from the greed of their hearts are the
And (fai‘ is also) for those who came after them saying, .Our Lord, forgive us and those of our brothers who preceded us
in faith, and do not place in our hearts any rancor against those who believe; Surely, Our Lord, you are Very-Kind, VeryMerciful.
Did you not see the hypocrites saying to their brothers from those of the people of the Book who are unbelievers, .If you
are expelled, we will certainly go out with you, and we will never obey anyone about you. And if you are fought against,
we will definitely help you.. Allah bears witness that they are pure liars.
If they are expelled, they will not go out with them, and if they are fought against, they will not help them. And even if
they help them, they will surely turn their backs, then they will not be helped.
In fact, your fear in their hearts is greater than (that of) Allah. That is because they are a people who do not understand.
They do not fight you, even assembled together, but in fortified towns, or from behind the walls. Their quarrelling
between themselves is severe. You think that they are united, while their hearts are divided. That is because they are a
people who have no sense.
The example (of Banu NaDir) is like those who were before them in near past, who tasted the evil consequence of their
conduct, and for them (in the Hereafter) there is a painful punishment.
The example (of the hypocrites) is like the Shaitan when he says to a human being, .Become disbeliever. then once he
disbelieves, he says, .I disown you; I fear Allah, the Lord of the worlds..
So the end of both of them is that they will be in the Fire, living there forever. That is the punishment of the
O you who believe, fear Allah, and everybody must consider what he (or she) has sent ahead for tomorrow. And fear
Allah. Surely Allah is fully aware of what you do.
Do not be like those who forgot Allah, so He made them forget their own selves. Those are the sinners.
The people of Hell and the people of Paradise are not equal. The people of Paradise are the successful.
Had We sent down this Qur‘an to a mountain, you would have seen it humbled, burst apart out of awe for Allah. We cite
such examples for people, so that they may ponder.
He is Allah, besides whom there is no god, the Knower of the unseen and the seen. He is All-Merciful, Very-Merciful.
He is Allah, besides whom there is no god, the Sovereign, the Supreme-In-Holiness, the Safe (from all defects), the GiverOf-Peace, the Guardian, the All-Mighty, the All-Repairer, the Sublime. Pure is Allah from what they associate with Him.
He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Shaper. His are the Most Beautiful Names. His purity is proclaimed by all that
is in the heavens and the earth, and He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
