In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . Alif . Lam . Mim .

2 . Allah! There is no God save Him , the Alive , the Eternal .

3 . He hath revealed unto thee ( Muhammad ) the Scripture with truth , confirming that which was ( revealed ) before it , even as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel

4 . Aforetime , for a guidance to mankind ; and hath revealed the Criterion ( of right and wrong ) . Lo! those who disbelieve the revelations of Allah , theirs will be a heavy doom . Allah is Mighty , Able to Requite ( the wrong ) .

5 . Lo! nothing in the earth or in the heavens is hidden from Allah .

6 . He it is who fashioneth you in the wombs as pleaseth Him . There is no God save Him , the Almighty , the Wise .

7 . He it is Who hath revealed unto thee ( Muhammad ) the Scripture wherein are clear revelations . They are the substance of the Book . and others ( which are ) allegorical . But those in whose hearts is doubt pursue , forsooth , that which is allegorical seeking ( to cause ) dissension by seeking to explain it . None knoweth its explanation save Allah . And those who are of sound instruction say : We believe therein ; the whole is from our Lord ; but only men of understanding really heed .

8 . Our Lord! Cause not our hearts to stray after Thou hast guided us , and bestow upon us mercy from Thy Presence . Lo! Thou , only Thou art the Bestower .

9 . Our Lord! it is Thou Who gatherest mankind together to a Day of which there is no doubt . Lo! Allah faileth not to keep the tryst .

10 . ( On that day ) neither the riches not the progeny of those who disbelieve will aught avail them with Allah . They will be fuel for fire .

11 . Like Pharaoh ' s folk and those who were before them , they disbelieved Our revelations and so Allah seized them for their sins . And Allah is severe in punishment .

12 . Say ( O Muhammad ) unto those who disbelieve : Ye shall be overcome and gathered unto Hell , an evil resting place .

13 . There was a token for you in two hosts which met : one army fighting in the way of Allah , and another disbelieving , whom they saw as twice their number , clearly , with their very eyes . Thus Allah strengtheneth with His succour whom He will . Lo! herein verily is a lesson for those who have eyes .

14 . Beautified for mankind is love of the joys ( that come ) from women and offspring , and stored up heaps of gold and silver , and horses branded ( with their mark ) , and cattle and land . That is comfort of the life of the world . Allah! With Him is a more excellent abode .

15 . Say : Shall I inform you of something better than that? For those who keep from evil , with their Lord , are Gardens underneath which rivers flow , and pure companions , and contentment from Allah . Allah is Seer of His bondmen ,

16 . Those who say : Our Lord! Lo! we believe . So forgive us our sins and guard us from the punishment of Fire ;

17 . The steadfast , and the truthful , and the obedient , those who spend ( and hoard not ) , those who pray for pardon in the watches of the night .

18 . Allah ( Himself ) is witness that there is no God save Him . And the angels and the men of learning ( too are witness ) . Maintaining His creation in justice , there is no God save Him , the Almighty , the Wise .

19 . Lo! religion with Allah ( is ) The Surrender ( to His will and guidance ) . Those who ( formerly ) received the Scripture differed only after knowledge came unto them , through transgression among themselves . Whoso disbelieveth the revelations of Allah ( will find that ) Lo! Allah is swift at reckoning .

20 . And if they argue with thee , ( O Muhammad ) , say : I have surrendered my purpose to Allah and ( so have ) those who follow me . And say unto those who have received the Scripture and those who read not : Have ye ( too ) surrendered? If they surrender , then truly they are rightly guided , and if they turn away , then it is thy duty only to convey the message ( unto them ) . Allah is Seer of ( His ) bondmen .

21 . Lo! those who disbelieve the revelations of Allah , and slay the Prophets wrongfully , and slay those of mankind who enjoin equity : promise them a painful doom .

22 . Those are they whose works have failed in the world and the Hereafter ; and they have no helpers .

23 . Hast thou not seen how those who have received the Scripture invoke the Scripture of Allah ( in their disputes ) that it may judge between them ; then a faction of them turn away , being opposed ( to it ) ?

24 . That is because they say : The Fire will not touch us save for a certain number of days . That which they used to invent hath deceived them regarding their religion .

25 . How ( will it be with them ) when We have brought them all together to a Day of which there is no doubt , when every soul will be paid in full what it hath earned , and they will not be wronged .

26 . Say : O Allah! Owner of Sovereignty! Thou givest sovereignty unto whom Thou wilt , and Thou withdrawest sovereignty from whom Thou wilt . Thou exaltest whom Thou wilt and Thou abasest whom Thou wilt . In Thy hand is the good . Lo! Thou art Able to do all things .

27 . Thou causest the night to pass into the day , and Thou causest the day to pass into the night . And Thou bringest forth the living from the dead , and Thou bringest forth the dead from the living . And Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou choosest , without stint .

28 . Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers . Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless ( it be ) that ye but guard yourselves against them , taking ( as it were ) security . Allah biddeth you beware ( only ) of Himself . Unto Allah is the journeying .

29 . Say , ( O Muhammad ) : Whether ye hide that which is in your breasts or reveal it , Allah knoweth it . He knoweth that which is in the heavens and that which is in the earth , and Allah is Able to do all things .

30 . On the day when every soul will find itself confronted with all that it hath done of good and all ' that it hath done of evil ( every soul ) will long that there might be a mighty apace of distance between it and that ( evil ) . Allah biddeth you beware of Him . And Allah is full of pity for ( His ) bondmen .

31 . Say , ( O Muhammad , to mankind ) : If ye love Allah , follow me ; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins . Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

32 . Say : Obey Allah and the messenger . But if they turn away , Lo! Allah loveth not the disbelievers ( in His guidance ) .

33 . Lo! Allah preferred Adam and Noah and the Family of Abraham and the Family of ' Imran above ( all His ) creatures .

34 . They were descendants one of another . Allah is Hearer , Knower .

35 . ( Remember ) when the wife of Imran said : My Lord I have vowed unto Thee that which is in my belly as a consecrated ( offering ) . Accept it from me . Lo! Thou , only Thou , art the Hearer , the Knower!

36 . And when she was delivered she said : My Lord! Lo! I am delivered of a female . Allah knew best of what she was delivered . the male is not as the female ; and Lo! I have named her Mary , and Lo! I crave Thy protection for her and for her offspring from Satan the outcast .

37 . And her Lord accepted her with full acceptance and vouchsafed to her a goodly growth ; and made Zachariah her guardian . Whenever Zachariah went into the sanctuary where she was , he found that she had food . He said : O Mary! Whence cometh unto thee this ( food ) ? She answered : It is from Allah . Allah giveth without stint to whom He will .

38 . Then Zachariah prayed unto his Lord and said : My Lord! Bestow upon me of Thy bounty goodly offspring . Lo! Thou an the Hearer of Prayer .

39 . And the angels called to him as he stood praying in the sanctuary : Allah giveth thee glad tidings of ( a son whose name is ) John , ( who cometh ) to confirm a word from Allah , lordly , chaste , a Prophet of the righteous .

40 . He said : My Lord! How can I have a son when age hath overtaken me already and my wife is barren? ( The angel ) answered : So ( it will be ) . Allah doeth what He will .

41 . He said : My Lord! Appoint a token for me . ( The angel ) said : The token unto thee ( shall be ) that thou shalt not speak unto mankind three days except by signs . Remember thy Lord much , and praise ( Him ) in the early hours of night and morning .

42 . And when the angels said : O Mary! Lo! Allah hath chosen thee and made thee pure , and hath preferred thee above ( all ) the women of creation .

43 . O Mary! Be obedient to thy Lord , prostrate thyself and bow with those who bow ( in worship ) .

44 . This is of the tidings of things hidden . We reveal it unto thee ( Mohammad ) . Thou wast not present with them when they threw their pens ( to know ) which of them should be the guardian of Mary , nor wast thou present with them when they quarrelled ( thereupon ) .

45 . ( And remember ) when the angels said : O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a word from Him , whose name is the Messiah , Jesus , son of Mary , illustrious in the world and the Hereafter , and one of those brought near ( unto Allah ) .

46 . He will speak unto mankind in his cradle and in his manhood , and he is of the righteous .

47 . She said : My Lord! How can I have a child when no mortal hath touched me? He said : So ( it will be ) . Allah createth what He will . if He decreeth a thing , He saith unto it only : Be! and it is .

48 . And He will teach him the Scripture and wisdom , and the Torah and the Gospel .

49 . And will make him a messenger unto the children of Israel , ( saying ) : Lo! I come unto you with a sign from your Lord . Lo! I fashion for you out of clay the likeness of a bird , and I breathe into it and it is a bird , by Allah ' s leave . I heal him who was born blind , and the leper , and I raise the dead , by Allah ' s leave . And I announce unto you what ye eat and what ye store up in your houses . Lo! herein verily is a portent for you , if ye are believers .

50 . And ( I come ) confirming that which was before me of the Torah , and to make lawful some of that which was forbidden unto you . I come unto you with a sign from your Lord , so keep your duty to Allah and obey me

51 . Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord , so worship Him . That is a straight path .

52 . But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief , he cried : Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah? The disciples said : We will be Allah ' s helpers . We believe in Allah , and bear thou witness that we have surrendered ( unto Him ) .

53 . Our Lord! We believe in that which Thou hast revealed and we follow him whom Thou hast sent . Enroll us among those who witness ( to the truth ) .

54 . And they ( the disbelievers ) schemed , and Allah schemed ( against them ) : and Allah is the best of schemers .

55 . ( And remember ) when Allah said : O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me , and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection . Then unto Me ye will ( all ) return , and I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ .

56 . As for those who disbelieve I shah chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the world and the Hereafter ; and they will have no helpers .

57 . And as for those who believe and do good works , He will pay them their wages in full . Allah loveth not wrongdoers .

58 . This ( which ) We recite unto thee is a revelation and a wise reminder .

59 . Lo! the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam . He created him of dust , then He said unto him : Be! and he is .

60 . ( This is ) the truth from thy Lord ( O Muhammad ) , so be not thou of those who waver .

61 . And whoso disputeth with thee concerning him , after the knowledge which hath come unto thee , say ( unto him ) : Come! We will summon our sons and your sons , and our women and your women , and ourselves and yourselves , then we will pray humbly ( to our Lord ) and ( solemnly ) invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie .

62 . Lo! This verily is the true narrative . There is no God save Allah , and lo! Allah is the Mighty , , the Wise .

63 . And if they turn away , then Lo! Allah is Aware of ( who are ) the corrupters .

64 . Say : O People of the Scripture . Come to an agreement between us and you : that we shall worship none but Allah , and that we shall ascribe no partners unto Him , and that none of us shall take others for lords beside Allah . And if they turn away , then say : Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered ( unto Him ) .

65 . O People of the Scripture! Why will ye argue about Abraham , when the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed till after him? Have ye then no sense?

66 . Lo! ye are those who argue about that whereof ye have some knowledge : Why then argue ye concerning that whereof ye have no knowledge? Allah knoweth . Ye know not .

67 . Abraham was not a Jew , nor yet a Christian ; but he was an upright man who had surrendered ( to Allah ) , and he was not of the idolaters .

68 . Lo! those of mankind who have the best claim to Abraham are those who followed him , and this Prophet and those who believe ( with him ) ; and Allah is the Protecting Friend of the believers .

69 . A party of the people of the Scripture long to make you go astray ; and they make none to go astray except themselves , but they perceive not .

70 . O People of the Scripture! Why disbelieve ye in the revelations of Allah , when ye ( yourselves ) bear witness ( to theft truth ) ?

71 . O People of the Scripture! Why confound ye truth with falsehood and knowingly conceal the troth?

72 . And a party of the People of the Scripture say : Believe in that which hath been revealed , unto those who believe at the opening of the day , and disbelieve at the end thereof , in order that they may return ;

73 . And believe not save in one who followeth your religion . Say ( O Muhammad ) : Lo! the guidance is Allah ' s guidance . that any one is given the like of that which was given unto you or that they may argue with you in the presence of their Lord . Say ( O Muhammad ) : Lo! the bounty is in Allah ' s hand . He bestoweth it on whom He will . Allah is All Embracing , All Knowing .

74 . He selecteth for His mercy whom He will . Allah is of infinite bounty .

75 . Among the People of the Scripture there is he who , if thou trust him with a weight of treasure , will return it to thee . And among them there is he who , if thou trust him with a piece of gold , will not return it to thee unless thou keep standing over him . That is because they say : We have no duty to the Gentiles . They speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly .

76 . Nay , but ( the chosen of Allah is ) he who fulfilleth his pledge and wardeth off ( evil ) ; for lot Allah loveth those who ward off ( evil ) .

77 . Lo! those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah ' s covenant and their oaths , they have no portion in the Hereafter . Allah will neither speak to them nor look upon them on the Day of Resurrection , nor will He make them grow . Theirs will be a painful doom .

78 . And Lo! there is a party of them who distort the Scripture with their tongues , that ye may think that what they say is from the Scripture , when it is not from the Scripture . And they say : It is from Allah , when it is not from Allah ; and they speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly .

79 . It is not ( possible ) for any human being unto whom Allah had given the Scripture and wisdom and the Prophethood that he should afterwards have said unto mankind : Be slaves of me instead of Allah ; but ( what he said was ) : Be ye faithful servants of the Lord by virtue of your constant teaching of the Scripture and of your constant study thereof .

80 . And he commanded you not that ye should take the angels and the Prophets for lords . Would he command you to disbelieve after ye had surrendered ( to Allah ) ?

81 . When Allah made ( His ) covenant with the Prophets , ( He said ) : Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and knowledge . And afterward there will come unto you a messenger , confirming that which ye possess . Ye shall believe in him and ye shah help him . He said : Do ye agree , and will ye take up My burden ( which I lay upon you ) in this ( matter ) ? They answered : We agree . He said : Then bear ye witness . I will be a witness with you .

82 . Then whosoever after this shall turn away : they will be miscreants .

83 . Seek they other than the religion of Allah , when unto Him submitteth whosoever is in the heavens and the earth , willingly , or unwillingly , and unto Him they will be returned .

84 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes , and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord . We make no distinction between any of them , and unto Him we have surrendered .

85 . And whoso seeketh as religion other than the Surrender ( to Allah ) it will not be accepted from him , and he will be a loser in the Hereafter .

86 . How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and ( after ) they bore witness that the messenger is true and after clear proofs ( of Allah ' s sovereignty ) had come unto them . And Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk .

87 . As for such , their guerdon is that on them rests the curse of Allah and of angels and of men combined .

88 . They will abide therein . Their doom will not be lightened , neither will they be reprieved ;

89 . Save those who afterward repent and do right . Lo! Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

90 . Lo! those who disbelieve after their ( profession of ) belief , and afterward grow violent in disbelief : their repentance will not be accepted . And such are those who are astray .

91 . Lo! those who disbelieve , and die in disbelief , the ( whole ) earth full of gold would not be accepted from such an one if it were offered as a ransom ( for his soul ) . Theirs will be a painful doom and they will have no helpers .

92 . Ye will not attain unto piety until ye spend of that which ye love . And whatsoever ye spend , Allah is aware thereof .

93 . All food was lawful unto the children of Israel , save that which Israel forbade himself , ( in days ) before the Torah was revealed . Say : Produce the Torah and read it ( unto us ) if ye are truthful .

94 . And whoever shall invent a falsehood after that concerning Allah , such will be wrong doers .

95 . Say : Allah speaketh truth . So follow the religion of Abraham , the upright . He was not of the idolaters .

96 . Lo! the first Sanctuary appointed for mankind was that at Mecca , a blessed place , a guidance to the peoples ;

97 . Wherein are plain memorials ( of Allah ' s guidance ) ; the place where Abraham stood up to pray ; and whosoever entereth it is safe . And pilgrimage to the House is a duty unto Allah for mankind , for him who can find a way thither . As for him who disbelieveth , ( let him know that ) Lo! Allah is Independent of ( all ) creatures .

98 . Say : O People of the Scripture! Why disbelieve ye in the revelations of Allah , when Allah ( Himself ) is Witness of what ye do?

99 . Say : O People of the Scripture! Why drive ye hack believers from the way of Allah , seeking to make it crooked , when ye are witnesses ( to Allah ' s guidance ) ? Allah is not unaware of what ye do .

100 . O ye who believe! If ye obey a party of those who have received the Scripture they will make you disbelievers after your belief .

101 . How can ye disbelieve , when Allah ' s revelations are recited unto you , and His messenger is in your midst? He who holdeth fast to Allah , he indeed is guided unto a right path .

102 . O ye who believe! Observe your duty to Allah with right observance , and die not save as those who have surrendered ( unto Him ) ;

103 . And hold fast , all of you together , to the cable of Allah , and do not separate . And remember Allah ' s favor unto you : how ye were enemies and He made friendship between your hearts so that ye became as brothers by His grace ; and ( how ) ye were upon the brink of an abyss of fire , and He did save you from it . Thus Allah maketh clear His revelations unto you , that haply ye may be guided ,

104 . And there may spring from you a nation who invite to goodness , and enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency . Such are they who are successful .

105 . And be ye not as those who separated and disputed after the clear proofs had come unto them . For such there is an awful doom ,

106 . On the day when ( some ) faces will be whitened and ( some ) faces will be blackened ; and as for those whose faces have been blackened , it will be said unto them : Disbelieved ye after your ( profession of ) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved .

107 . As for those whose faces have been whitened , Lo! in the mercy of Allah they dwell for ever .

108 . These are revelations of Allah . We recite them unto thee in truth . Allah willeth no injustice to ( His ) creatures .

109 . Unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth ; and unto Allah all things are returned .

110 . Ye are the best community that hath been raised up for mankind . Ye enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency ; and ye believe in Allah . And if the People of the Scripture had believed it had been better for them . Some of them are believers ; but most of them are evil livers .

111 . They will not harm you save a trifling hurt , and if they fight against you they will turn and flee . And afterward they will not be helped .

112 . Ignominy shall be theft portion wheresoever they are found save ( where they grasp ) a rope from Allah and a rope from men . They have incurred anger from their Lord , and wretchedness is laid upon them . That is because they used to disbelieve the revelations of Allah , and slew the Prophets wrongfully . That is because they were rebellious and used to transgress .

113 . They are not all alike . Of the People of the Scripture there is a staunch community who recite the revelations of Allah in the night season , falling prostrate ( before Him ) .

114 . They believe in Allah and the Last Day , and enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency , and vie one with another in good works . They are of the righteous .

115 . And whatever good they do , they will not be denied the meed thereof . Allah is Aware of those who ward off ( evil ) .

116 . Lo! the riches and the progeny of those who disbelieve will not avail them aught against Allah ; and such are rightful owners of the Fire . They will abide therein .

117 . The likeness of that which they spend in this life of the world is as the likeness of a biting , icy wind which smiteth the harvest of a people who have wronged themselves , and devastateth it . Allah wronged them not , but they did wrong themselves .

118 . O ye who believe! Take not for intimates others than your own folk , who would spare no pains to ruin you ; they love to hamper you . Hatred is revealed by ( the utterance of ) their mouths , but that which their breasts hide is greater . We have made plain for you the revelations if ye will understand .

119 . O ye are those who love them though they love you not , and ye believe in all the Scripture . When they fall in with you they say : We believe ; but when they go apart they bite their finger tips at you , for rage . Say : Perish in your rage! Lo! Allah is Aware of what is hidden in ( your ) breasts .

120 . If a lucky chance befall you , it is evil unto them , and if disaster strike you they rejoice thereat . But if ye persevere and keep from evil their guile will never harm you . Lo! Allah is Surrounding what they do .

121 . And remember when thou settedst forth at daybreak from thy housefolk to assign to the believers their positions for the battle , Allah was Hearer , Knower .

122 . When two parties of you almost fell away , and Allah was their Protecting Friend . In Allah do believers put their trust .

123 . Allah had already given you the victory at Badr , when ye were contemptible . So observe your duty to Allah in order that ye may be thankful .

124 . And when thou didst say unto the believers : Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord should support you with three thousand angels sent down ( to your help ) ?

125 . Nay , but if ye persevere , and keep from evil , and ( the enemy ) attack you suddenly , your Lord will help you with five thousand angels sweeping on .

126 . Allah ordained this only as a message of good cheer for you , and that thereby your hearts might be at rest . Victory cometh only from Allah , the Mighty , the Wise

127 . That He may cut off a part of those who disbelieve , or overwhelm them so that they retire , frustrated .

128 . It is no concern at all of thee ( Muhammad ) whether He relent toward them or punish them ; for they are evil doers .

129 . Unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth . He forgiveth whom He will , and punisheth whom He will . Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

130 . O ye who believe! Devour not usury , doubling and quadrupling ( the sum lent ) . Observe your duty to Allah , that ye may be successful .

131 . And ward off ( from yourselves ) the Fire prepared for disbelievers .

132 . And obey Allah and the messenger , that ye may find mercy .

133 . And vie one with another for forgiveness from your Lord , and for a Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth , prepared for those who ward off ( evil ) ;

134 . Those who spend ( of that which Allah hath given them ) in ease and in adversity , those who control their wrath and are forgiving toward mankind ; Allah loveth the good ;

135 . And those who , when they do an evil thing or wrong themselves , remember Allah and implore forgiveness for their sins . Who forgiveth sins save Allah only? . and will not knowingly repeat ( the wrong ) they did .

136 . The reward of such will be forgiveness from their Lord , and Gardens underneath which rivers flow , wherein they will abide for ever , a bountiful reward for workers!

137 . Systems have passed away before you . Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for those who did deny ( the messengers ) .

138 . This is a declaration for mankind , a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off ( evil ) .

139 . Faint not nor grieve , for ye will overcome them if ye are ( indeed ) believers .

140 . If ye have received a blow , the ( disbelieving ) people have received a blow the like thereof : These are ( only ) the vicissitudes which We cause to follow one another for mankind , to the end that Allah may know those who believe and may choose witnesses from among you ; and Allah loveth not wrong doers .

141 . And that Allah may prove those who believe , and may blight the disbelievers .

142 . Or deemed ye that ye would enter Paradise while yet Allah knoweth not those of you who really strive , nor knoweth those ( of you ) who are steadfast?

143 . And verily ye used to wish for death before ye met it ( in the field ) . Now ye have seen it with your eyes!

144 . Muhammad is but a messenger , messengers ( the like of whom ) have passed away before him . Will it be that , when he dieth or is slain , ye will turn back on your heels? He who turneth back doth no hurt to Allah , and Allah will reward the thankful .

145 . No soul can ever die except by Allah ' s leave and at a term appointed . Whoso desireth the reward of the world , We bestow on him thereof ; and whoso desireth the reward of the Hereafter , thankful . We bestow on him thereof . We shall reward the

146 . And with how many a prophet have there been a number of devoted men who fought ( beside him ) . They quailed not for aught that befell them in the way of Allah , nor did they weaken , nor were they brought low . Allah loveth the steadfast .

147 . Their cry was only that they said : Our Lord! Forgive us for our sins and wasted efforts , make our foothold sure , and give us victory over the disbelieving folk .

148 . So Allah gave them the reward of the world and the good reward of the Hereafter . Allah loveth those whose deeds are good .

149 . O ye who believe! If ye obey those who disbelieve , they will make you turn back on your heels , and ye turn back as losers .

150 . But Allah is your Protector , and He is the best of helpers .

151 . We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve because they ascribe unto Allah partners , for which no warrant hath been revealed . Their habitation is the Fire , and hapless the abode of the wrong doers .

152 . Allah verily made good His promise unto you when ye routed them by His leave , until ( the moment ) when your courage failed you , and ye disagreed about the order and ye disobeyed , after He had shown you that for which ye long . Some of you desired the world , and some of you desired the Hereafter . Therefore He made you flee from them , that He might try you . Yet now He hath forgiven you . Allah is a Lord of Kindness to believers .

153 . When ye climbed ( the hill ) and paid no heed to anyone , while the messenger , in your rear , was calling you ( to fight ) . Therefor He rewarded you grief for ( his ) grief , that ( He might teach ) you not to sorrow either for that which ye missed or for that which befell you . Allah is Informed of what ye do .

154 . Then , after grief , He sent clown security for you . As slumber did it overcome a party of you , while ( the other ) party , who were anxious on their own account , thought wrongly of Allah , the thought of ignorance . They said : Have we any part in the cause? Say ( O Muhammad ) : The cause belongeth wholly to Allah . They hide within themselves ( a thought ) which they reveal not unto thee , saying : Had we had any part in the cause we should not have been slain here . Say : Even though ye had been in your houses , those appointed to be slain would have gone forth to the places where they were to lie . ( All this hath been ) in order that Allah might try what is in your breasts and prove what is in your hearts . Allah is Aware of what is hidden in the breasts ( of men ) .

155 . Lo! those of you who turned back on the day when the two hosts met , Satan alone it was who caused them to backslide , because of some of that which they have earned . Now Allah hath forgiven them . Lo! Allah is Forgiving . Clement .

156 . O ye who believe! Be not as those who disbelieved and said of their brethren who went abroad in the land or were fighting in the field : If they had been ( here ) with us they would not have died or been killed ; that Allah may make it anguish in their hearts . Allah giveth life and causeth death ; and Allah is Seer of what ye do .

157 . And what though ye be slain in Allah ' s way or die therein? Surely pardon from Allah and mercy are better than all that they amass .

158 . What though ye be slain or die , when unto Allah ye are gathered?

159 . It was by the mercy of Allah that thou wast lenient with them ( O Muhammad ) , for if thou hadst been stern and fierce of heart they would have dispersed from round about thee . So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult with them upon the conduct of affairs . And when thou art resolved , then put thy trust in Allah . Lo! Allah loveth those who put their trust ( in Him ) .

160 . If Allah is your helper none can overcome you , and if He withdraw His help from you , who is there who can help you? In Allah let believers put their trust .

161 . It is not for any Prophet to deceive ( mankind ) . Whoso deceiveth will bring his deceit with him on the Day of Resurrection . Then every soul will be paid in full what it hath earned ; and they will not be wronged .

162 . Is one who followeth the pleasure of Allah as one who hath earned condemnation from Allah , whose habitation is the Fire , a hapless journey ' s end?

163 . There are degrees ( of grace and reprobation ) with Allah , and Allah is Seer of what ye do .

164 . Allah verily hath shown grace to the believers by sending unto them a messenger of their own who reciteth unto them His revelations , and causeth them to grow , and teacheth them the Scripture and wisdom ; although before ( he came to them ) they were in flagrant error .

165 . And was it so , when a disaster smote you , though ye had smitten ( them with a disaster ) twice ( as great ) , that ye said : How is this? Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : It is from yourselves . Lo! Allah is Able to do all things .

166 . That which befell you , on the day when the two armies met , was by permission of Allah ; that He might know the true believers ;

167 . And that He might know the hypocrites , unto whom it was said : Come , fight in the way of Allah , or defend yourselves . They answered : If we knew aught of fighting we would follow you . On that day they were nearer disbelief than faith . They utter with their mouths a thing which is not in their hearts . Allah is best aware of what they hide .

168 . Those who , while they sat at home , said of their brethren ( who were fighting for the cause of Allah ) : If they had been guided by us they would not have been slain . Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : Then avert death from yourselves if ye are truthful .

169 . Think not of those , who are slain in the way of Allah , as dead . Nay , they are living . With their Lord they have provision .

170 . Jubilant ( are they ) because of that which Allah hath bestowed upon them of His bounty , rejoicing for the sake of those who have not joined them but are left behind : that there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve .

171 . They rejoice because of favor from Allah and kindness , and that Allah wasteth not the wage of the believers .

172 . As for those who heard the call of Allah and His messenger after the harm befell them ( in the fight ) ; for such of them as do right and ward off ( evil ) , there is great reward ,

173 . Those unto whom men said : Lo! the people have gathered against you , therefor fear them . ( The threat of danger ) but increased the faith of them and they cried : Allah is sufficient for us! Most Excellent is He in Whom we trust!

174 . So they returned with grace and favor from Allah , and no harm touched them . They followed the good pleasure of Allah , and Allah is of infinite bounty .

175 . It is only the devil who would make ( men ) fear his partisans . Fear them not ; fear Me , if ye are true believers .

176 . Let not their conduct grieve thee , who run easily to disbelief , for Lo! they injure Allah not at all . It is Allah ' s will to assign them no portion in the Hereafter , and theirs will be an awful doom .

177 . Those who purchase disbelief at the price of faith harm Allah not at all , but theirs will be a painful doom .

178 . And let not those who disbelieve imagine that the rein We give them bodeth good unto their souls . We only give them rein that they may grow in sinfulness . And theirs will be a shameful doom .

179 . It is not ( the purpose ) of Allah to leave you in your present state till He shall separate the wicked from the good . And it is not ( the purpose of ) Allah to let you know the unseen . But Allah chooseth of His messengers whom He will , ( to receive knowledge thereof . ) So believe in Allah and His messengers . If ye believe and ward off ( evil ) , yours will be a vast reward .

180 . And let not those who hoard up that which Allah hath bestowed upon them of His bounty think that it is better for them . Nay , it is worse for them . That which they hoard will be their collar on the Day of Resurrection . Allah ' s is the heritage of the heavens and the earth , and Allah is Informed of what ye do .

181 . Verily Allah heard the saying of those who said , ( when asked for contributions to the war ) : "Allah , forsooth , is poor , and we are rich! We shall record their saying with their slaying of the Prophets wrongfully and We shall say : Taste ye the punishment of burning!

182 . This is on account of that which your own hands have sent before ( you to the judgment ) . Allah is no oppressor of ( His ) bondmen .

183 . ( The same are ) those who say : Lo! Allah hath charged us that we believe not in any messenger until he bring us an offering which fire ( from heaven ) shall devour . Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : Messengers came unto you before me with miracles , and with that ( very miracle ) which ye describe . Why then did ye slay them? ( Answer that ) if ye are truthful

184 . And if they deny thee , even so did they deny messengers who were before thee , who came with miracles and with the Psalms and with the Scripture giving light .

185 . Every soul will taste of death . And ye will be paid on the Day of Resurrection only that which ye have fairly earned . Whoso is removed from the Fire and is made to enter Paradise , he indeed is triumphant . The life of this world is but comfort of illusion .

186 . Assuredly ye will be tried in your property and in your persons , and ye will hear much wrong from those who were given the Scripture before you , and from the idolaters . But if ye persevere and ward off ( evil ) , then that is of the steadfast heart of things .

187 . And ( remember ) when Allah laid a charge on those who had received the Scripture ( He said ) : Ye are to expound it to mankind and not to hide it . But they flung it behind their backs and bought thereby a little gain . Verily evil is that which they have gained thereby .

188 . Think not that those who exult in what they have given , and love to be praised for what they have not done Think not , they are in safety from the doom . A painful doom is theirs .

189 . Unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth . Allah is Able to do all things .

190 . Lo! In the creation of the heavens and the earth and ( in ) the difference of night and day are tokens ( of His sovereignty ) for men of understanding ,

191 . Such as remember Allah , standing , sitting , and reclining , and consider the creation of the heavens and the earth , ( and say ) : Our Lord! Thou createdst not this in vain . Glory be to Thee! Preserve us from the doom of Fire

192 . Our Lord! Whom Thou causest to enter the Fire : him indeed Thou hast confounded . For evil doers there will be no helpers .

193 . Our Lord! Lo! we have heard a crier calling unto Faith : "Believe ye in your Lord!" So we believed . Our Lord! Therefor forgive us our sins , and remit from us our evil deeds , and make us die the death of the righteous .

194 . Our Lord! And give us that which Thou hast promised to us by Thy messengers . Confound us not upon the Day of Resurrection . Lo! Thou breakest not the tryst .

195 . And their Lord hath heard them ( and He saith ) : Lo! I suffer not the work of any worker , male or female , to be lost . Ye proceed one from another . So those who fled and were driven forth from their homes and suffered damage for My cause , and fought and were slain , verity I shall remit their evil deeds from them and verily I shall bring them into Gardens underneath which rivers flow . A reward from Allah . And with Allah is the fairest of rewards .

196 . Let not the vicissitude ( of the success ) of those who disbelieve , in the land , deceive thee ( O Muhammad ) .

197 . It is but a brief comfort . And afterward their habitation will be hell , an ill abode .

198 . But those who keep their duty to their Lord , for them are Gardens underneath which rivers flow , wherein they will be safe for ever . A gift of welcome from their Lord . That which Allah hath in store is better for the righteous .

199 . And Lo! of the People of the Scripture there are some who believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto you and that which was revealed unto them , humbling themselves before Allah . They purchase not a trifling gain at the price of the revelations of Allah . Verily their reward is with their Lord , and Lo! Allah is swift to take account .

200 . O ye who believe! Endure , outdo all others in endurance , be ready , and observe your duty to Allah , in order that ye may succeed .
