In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it created its mate and from them twain hath spread abroad a multitude of men and women . Be careful of your duty toward Allah in Whom ye claim ( your rights ) of one another , and toward the wombs ( that bare you ) . Lo! Allah hath been a Watcher over you .
2 . Give unto orphans their wealth . Exchange not the good for the bad ( in your management thereof ) nor absorb their wealth into your own wealth . Lo! that would be a great sin .
3 . And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans , marry of the women , who seem good to you , two or three or four ; and if ye fear that ye cannot do justice ( to so many ) then one ( only ) or ( the captives ) that your right hands possess . Thus it is more likely that ye will not do injustice .
4 . And give unto the women , ( whom ye marry ) free gift of their marriage portions ; but if they of their own accord remit unto you a part thereof , then ye are welcome to absorb it ( in your wealth ) .
5 . Give not unto the foolish ( what is in ) your ( keeping of their ) wealth , which Allah hath given you to maintain ; but feed and clothe them from it , and speak kindly unto them .
6 . Prove orphans till they reach the marriageable age ; then , if ye find them of sound judgment , deliver over unto them their fortune ; and devour it not squandering and in haste lest they should grow up . Whoso ( of the guardians ) is rich , let him abstain generously ( from taking of the property of orphans ) ; and whoso is poor let him take thereof in reason ( for his guardianship ) . And when ye deliver up their fortune unto orphans , have ( the transaction ) witnessed in their presence . Allah sufficeth as a Reckoner .
7 . Unto the men ( of a family ) belongeth a share of that which parents and near kindred leave , and unto the women a share of that which parents and near kindred leave , whether it be little or much a legal share .
8 . And when kinsfolk and orphans and the needy are present at the devision ( of the heritage ) , bestow on them therefrom and speak kindly unto them .
9 . And let those fear ( in their behavior toward orphans ) who if they left behind them weak offspring would be afraid for them . So let them mind their duty to Allah , and speak justly .
10 . Lo! Those who devour the wealth of orphans wrongfully , they do but swallow fire into their bellies , and they will be exposed to burning flame .
11 . Allah chargeth you concerning ( the provision for ) your children : to the male the equivalent of the portion of two females , and if there be women more than two , then theirs is two-thirds of the inheritance , and if there be one ( only ) then the half . And to his parents a sixth of the inheritance , if he have a son ; and if he have no son and his parents are his heirs , then to his mother appertaineth the third ; and if he have brethren , then to his mother appertaineth the sixth , after any legacy he may have bequeathed , or debt ( hath been paid ) . Your parents or your children : Ye know not which of them is nearer unto you in usefulness . It is an injunction from Allah . Lo! Allah is Knower , rise .
12 . And unto you belongeth a half of that which your wives leave , if they have no child ; but if they have a child then unto you the fourth of that which they leave , after any legacy they may have bequeathed , or debt ( they may have contracted , hath been paid ) . And unto them belongeth the fourth of that which ye leave if ye have no child , but if ye have a child then the eighth of that which ye leave , after any legacy ye may have bequeathed , or debt ( ye may have contracted , hath been paid ) . And if a man or a woman have a distant heir ( having left neither parent nor child ) , and he ( or she ) have a brother or a sister ( only on the mother ' s side ) then to each of them twain ( the brother and the sister ) the sixth , and if they be more than two , then they shall be sharers in the third , after any legacy that may have been bequeathed or debt ( contracted ) not injuring ( the heirs by willing away more than a third of the heritage ) hath been paid . A commandment from Allah . Allah is knower , Indulgent .
13 . These are the limits ( imposed by ) Allah . Whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger , He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow , where such will dwell for ever . That will be the great success .
14 . And whoso disobeyeth Allah and His messenger and transgresseth His limits , He will make him enter Fire , where such will dwell for ever ; his will be a shameful doom .
15 . As for those of your women who are guilty of lewdness , call to witness four of you against them . And if they testify ( to the truth of the allegation ) then confine them to the houses until death take them or ( until ) Allah appoint for them a way ( through new legislation ) .
16 . And as for the two of you who are guilty thereof , punish them both . And if they repent and improve , then let them be . Lo! Allah is Relenting , Merciful .
17 . Forgiveness is only incumbent on Allah toward those who do evil in ignorance ( and ) then turn quickly ( in repentance ) to Allah . These are they toward whom Allah relenteth . Allah is ever Knower , Wise .
18 . The forgiveness is not for those who do ill deeds until , when death attendeth upon one of them , he saith : Lo! I repent now ; nor yet for those who die while they are disbelievers . For such We have prepared a painful doom .
19 . O ye who believe! It is not lawful for you forcibly to inherit the women ( of your deceased kinsmen ) , nor ( that ) ye should put constraint upon them that ye may take away a part of that which ye have given them , unless they be guilty of flagrant lewdness . But consort with them in kindness , for if ye hate them it may happen that ye hate a thing wherein Allah hath placed much good .
20 . And if ye wish to exchange one wife for another and ye have given unto one of them a sum of money ( however great ) , take nothing from it . Would ye take it by the way of calumny and open wrong?
21 . How can ye take it ( back ) after one of you hath gone in unto the other , and they have taken a strong pledge from you?
22 . And marry not those women whom your fathers married , except what hath already happened ( of that nature ) in the past . Lo! it was ever lewdness and abomination , and an evil way .
23 . Forbidden unto you are your mothers , and your daughters , and your sisters , and your father ' s sisters , and your mother ' s sisters , and your brother ' s daughters and your sister ' s daughters , and your foster mothers , and your foster sisters , and your mothers-in-law , and your stepdaughters who are under your protection ( born ) of your women unto whom ye have gone in but if ye have not gone in unto them , then it is no sin for you ( to marry their daughters ) and the wives of your sons who ( spring ) from your own loins . And ( it is forbidden unto you ) that ye should have two sisters together , except what hath already happened ( of that nature ) in the past . Lo! Allah is ever Forgiving , Merciful .
24 . And all married women ( are forbidden unto you save those ( captives ) whom your right hands possess . It is a decree of Allah for you . Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned , so that ye seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock , not debauchery . And those of whom ye seek content ( by marrying them ) , give unto them their portions as a duty . And there is no sin for you in what ye do by mutual agreement after the duty ( hath been done ) . Lo! Allah is ever Knower , Wise .
25 . And whoso is not able to afford to marry free , believing women , let them marry from the believing maids whom your right hands possess . Allah knoweth best ( concerning ) your faith . Ye ( proceed ) one from another ; so wed them by permission of their folk , and give unto them their portions in kindness , they being honest , not debauched nor of loose conduct . And if when they are honorably married they commit lewdness they shall incur the half of the punishment ( prescribed ) for free women ( in that case ) . This is for him among you who feareth to commit sin . But to have patience would be better for you . Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .
26 . Allah would explain to you and guide you by the examples of those who were before you , and would turn to you in mercy . Allah is Knower , Wise .
27 . And Allah would turn to you in mercy ; but those who follow vain desires would have you go tremendously astray .
28 . Allah would make the burden light for you , for man was created weak .
29 . O ye who believe! Squander not your wealth among yourselves in vanity , except it be a trade by mutual consent , and kill not one another . Lo! Allah is ever Merciful unto you .
30 . Whoso doeth that through aggression and injustice , We shall cast him into Fire , and that is ever easy for Allah .
31 . If ye avoid the great ( things ) which ye are forbidden , We will remit from you your evil deeds and make you enter at a noble gate .
32 . And covet not the thing in which Allah hath made some of you excel others . Unto men a fortune from that which they have earned , and unto women a fortune from that which they have earned . ( Envy not one another ) but ask Allah of His bounty . Lo! Allah is ever Knower of all things .
33 . And unto each We have appointed heirs of that which parents and near kindred leave ; and as for those with whom your right hands have made a covenant , give them their due . Lo! Allah is ever fitness over all things .
34 . Men are in charge of women , because Allah hath men the one of them to excel the other , and because they spend of their property ( for the support of women ) . So good women are the obedient , guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded . As for those from whom ye fear rebellion , admonish them and banish them to beds apart , and scourge them . Then if they obey you , seek not a way against them . Lo! Allah is ever High Exalted , Great .
35 . And if ye fear a breech between them twain ( the man and wife ) , appoint an arbiter from his folk and an arbiter from her folk . If they desire amendment Allah will make them of one mind . Lo! Allah is ever Knower , Aware .
36 . And serve Allah . Ascribe no thing as partner unto Him . ( Show ) kindness unto parents , and unto near kindred , and orphans , and the needy , and into the neighbor who is of kin ( unto you ) and the neighbor who is not of kin and the fellow traveller and the wayfarer and ( the slaves ) whom your right hands possess . Lo! Allah loveth not such as are proud and boastful ,
37 . Who hoard their wealth and enjoin avarice on others , and hide that which Allah hath bestowed upon them of His bounty . For disbelievers We prepare a shameful doom ;
38 . And ( also ) those who spend their wealth in order to be seen of men , and believe not in Allah nor the Last Day . Whoso taketh Satan for a comrade , a bad comrade hath he .
39 . What have they ( to fear ) if they believe in Allah and the Last Day and spend ( aright ) of that which Allah hath bestowed upon them , when Allah is ever Aware of them ( and all they do ) ?
40 . Lo! Allah wrongeth not even of the weight of an ant ; and if there is a good deed , He will double it and will give ( the doer ) from His presence an immense reward .
41 . But how ( will it be with them ) when we bring of every people a witness , and We bring thee ( O Muhammad ) a witness against these?
42 . On that day those who disbelieved and disobeyed the messenger will wish that they were level with the ground , and they can hide no fact from Allah .
43 . O ye who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when ye are drunken , till ye know that which ye utter , nor when ye are polluted , save when journeying upon the road , till ye have bathed . And if ye be ill , or on a journey , or one of you cometh from the closet , or ye have touched women , and ye and not water , than go to high clean soil and rub your faces and your hands ( therewith ) . Lo! Allah is Benign , Forgiving .
44 . Seest thou not those unto whom a portion of the Scripture hath been given , how they purchase error , and seek to make you ( Muslims ) err from the right way?
45 . Allah knoweth best ( who are ) your enemies . Allah is sufficient as a Friend , and Allah is sufficient as a Helper .
46 . Some of those who are Jews change words from their context and say : "We hear and disobey ; hear thou as one who heareth not" and "Listen to us!" distorting with their tongues and slandering religion . If they had said : "We hear and we obey ; hear thou , and look at us" it had been better for them , and more upright . But Allah hath cursed them for their disbelief , so they believe not , save a few .
47 . O ye unto whom the Scripture hath been given! Believe in what We have revealed concerning that which ye possess , before We destroy countenances so as to confound them , or curse them as We cursed the Sabbath breakers ( of old time ) . The commandment of Allah is always executed .
48 . Lo! Allah forgiveth not that a partner should be ascribed unto Him . He forgiveth ( all ) save that to whom He will . Whoso ascribeth partners to Allah , he hath indeed invented a tremendous sin .
49 . Hast thou not seen those who praise themselves for purity? Nay , Allah purifieth whom He will , and they will not be wronged even the hair upon a date stone .
50 . See , how they invent lies about Allah! That of itself is flagrant sin .
51 . Hast thou not seen those unto whom a portion of the Scripture hath been given , how they believe in idols and false deities , and bow they say of those ( idolaters ) who disbelieve : "These are more rightly guided than those who believe?"
52 . Those are they whom Allah hath cursed , and he whom Allah hath cursed , thou ( O Muhammad ) wilt find for him no helper .
53 . Or have they even a share in the Sovereignty? Then in that case , they would not give mankind even the speck on a date stone .
54 . Or are they jealous of mankind because of that which Allah of His bounty hath bestowed upon them? For We bestowed upon the house of Abraham ( of old ) the Scripture and Wisdom , and We bestowed on them a mighty kingdom .
55 . And of them were ( some ) who believed therein and of them were ( some ) who disbelieved therein . Hell is sufficient for ( their ) burning .
56 . Lo! Those who disbelieve Our revelations , We shall expose them to the Fire . As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment . Lo! Allah is ever Mighty , Wise .
57 . And as for those who believe and do good works , We shall make them enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow to dwell therein for ever ; there for them are pure companions and We shall make them enter plenteous shade .
58 . Lo! Allah commandeth you that ye restore deposits to their owners , and , if ye judge between mankind , that ye judge justly . Lo! comely is this which Allah admonisheth you . Lo! Allah is ever Hearer , Seer .
59 . O ye who believe! Obey Allah , and obey the messenger and those of you who are in authority ; and if ye have a dispute concerning any matter , refer it to Allah and the messenger if ye are ( in truth ) believers in Allah and the Last Day . That is better and more seemly in the end .
60 . Hast thou not seen those who pretend that they believe in that which is revealed unto thee and that which was revealed before thee , how they would go for judgment ( in their disputes ) to false deities when they have been ordered to abjure them? Satan would mislead them far astray .
61 . And then it is said unto them : Come unto that which Allah hath revealed and unto the messenger , thou seest the hypocrites turn from thee with aversion .
62 . How would it be if a misfortune smote them because of that which their own hands have sent before ( them ) ? Then would they come unto thee , swearing by Allah that they were seeking naught but harmony and kindness .
63 . Those are they , the secrets of whose hearts Allah knoweth . So oppose them and admonish them , and address them in plain terms about their souls .
64 . We sent ; no messenger save that he should be obeyed by Allah ' s leave . And if , when they had wronged themselves , they had but come unto thee and asked forgiveness of Allah and asked forgiveness of the messenger , they would have found Allah Forgiving , Merciful .
65 . But nay , by thy lord , they will not believe ( in truth ) until they make thee judge of what is in dispute between them and find within themselves no dislike of that which thou decidest , and submit with full submission .
66 . And if We had decreed for them : Lay down your lives or go forth from your dwellings , but few of them would have done it ; though if they did what they are exhorted to do it would be better for them , and more strengthening ;
67 . And then We should bestow upon them from Our presence an immense reward ,
68 . And should guide them unto a straight path .
69 . Whoso obeyeth Allah and the messenger , they are with those unto whom Allah hath shown favor , of the Prophets and the saints and the martyrs and the righteous . The best of company are they!
70 . Such is the bounty of Allah , and Allah sufficeth as knower .
71 . O ye who believe! Take your precautions , then advance the proven ones , or advance all together .
72 . Lo! among you there is he who Loitereth ; and if disaster overtook you , he would say : Allah hath been gracious unto me since I was not present with them
73 . And if a bounty from Allah befell you , he would surely cry , as if there had been no love between you and him : Oh , would that I had been with them , then should I have achieved a great success!
74 . Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other . Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah , be he slain or be he victorious , on him We shall bestow a vast reward .
75 . How should ye not fight for the cause of Allah and of the feeble among men and of the women and the children who are crying : Our Lord! Bring us forth from out this town of which the people are oppressors! Oh , give us from Thy presence some protecting friend! Oh , give us from Thy presence some defender!
76 . Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah ; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols . So fight the minions of the devil . Lo! the devil ' s strategy is ever weak .
77 . Hast thou not seen those unto whom it was said : Withhold your hands , establish worship and pay the poor due , but when fighting was prescribed for them behold , a party of them fear mankind even as their fear of Allah or with greater fear , and say : Our Lord! Why hast thou ordained fighting for us? If only Thou wouldst give us respite yet a while! Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : The comfort of this world is scant ; the Hereafter will be better for him who wardeth off ( evil ) ; and ye will not be wronged the down upon a date stone .
78 . Wheresoever ye may be , death will overtake you , even though ye were in lofty towers . Yet if a happy thing befalleth them they say : This is from Allah ; and if an evil thing befalleth them they say : This is of thy doing ( O Muhammad ) . Say ( unto them ) : All is from Allah . What is amiss with these people that they come not nigh to understand a happening?
79 . Whatever of good befalleth thee ( O man ) it is from Allah , and whatever of ill befalleth thee it is from thyself . We have sent thee ( Muhammad ) as a messenger unto mankind and Allah is sufficient as witness .
80 . Whoso obeyeth the messenger obeyeth Allah , and whoso turneth away : We have not sent thee as a warder over them .
81 . And they say : ( It is ) obedience ; but when they have gone forth from thee a party of them spend the night in planning other than what thou sayest . Allah recordeth what they plan by night . So oppose them and put thy trust in Allah . Allah is sufficient as Trustee .
82 . Will they not then ponder on the Qur ' an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity .
83 . And if any tidings , whether of safety or fear , come unto them , they noise it abroad , whereas if they had referred it to the messenger and such of them as are in authority , those among them who are able to think out the matter would have known it . If it had not been for the grace of Allah and His mercy ye would have followed Satan , save a few ( of you ) .
84 . So fight ( O Muhammad ) in the way of Allah Thou art not taxed ( with the responsibility for anyone ) except for thyself and urge on the believers . Peradventure Allah will restrain the might of those who disbelieve . Allah is stronger in might and stronger in inflicting punishment .
85 . Whoso interveneth in a good cause will have the reward thereof , and whoso interveneth in an evil cause will bear the consequence thereof . Allah overseeth all things .
86 . When ye are greeted with a greeting , greet ye with a better than it or return it . Lo! Allah taketh count of all things .
87 . Allah! There is no God save Him . He gathereth you all unto a Day of Resurrection whereof there is no doubt . Who is more true in statement than Allah?
88 . What aileth you that ye are become two parties regarding the hypocrites , when Allah cast them back ( to disbelief ) because of what they earned? Seek ye to guide him whom Allah hath sent astray? He whom Allah sendeth astray , for him thou ( O Muhammad ) canst not find a road .
89 . They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve , that ye may be upon a level ( with them ) . So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah ; if they turn back ( to enmity ) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them , and choose no friend nor helper from among them ,
90 . Except those who seek refuge with a people between whom and you there is a covenant , or ( those who ) come unto you because their hearts forbid them to make war on you or make war on their own folk . Had Allah willed He could have given them power over you so that assuredly they would have fought you . So , if they hold aloof from you and wage not war against you and offer you peace , Allah alloweth you no way against them .
91 . Ye will find others who desire that they should have security from you , and security from their own folk . So often as they are returned to hostility they are plunged therein . If they keep not aloof from you nor offer you peace nor hold their hands , then take them and kill them wherever ye find them . Against such We have given you clear warrant .
92 . It is not for a believer to kill a believer unless ( it be ) by mistake . He who hath killed a believer by mistake must set free a believing slave , and pay the blood money to the family of the slain , unless they remit it as a charity . If he ( the victim ) be of a people hostile unto you , and he is a believer , then ( the penance is ) to set free a believing slave . And if he cometh of a folk between whom and you there is a covenant , then the blood money must be paid unto his folk and ( also ) a believing slave must be set free . And whoso hath not the wherewithal must fast two consecutive months . A penance from Allah . Allah is Knower , Wise .
93 . Whoso slayeth a believer of set purpose , his reward is Hell for ever . Allah is wroth against him and He hath cursed him and prepared for him an awful doom .
94 . O ye who believe! When ye go forth ( to fight ) in the way of Allah , be careful to discriminate , and say not unto one who offereth you peace : "Thou are not a believer ; " seeking the chance profits of this life ( so that ye may despoil him ) . With Allah are plenteous spoils . Even thus ( as he now is ) were ye before ; but Allah hath since then been gracious unto you . Therefore take care to discriminate . Allah is ever informed of what ye do .
95 . Those of the believers who sit still , other than those who have a ( disabling ) hurt , are not on an equality with those who strive in the way of Allah with their wealth and lives . Allah hath conferred on those who strive with their wealth and lives a rank above the sedentary . Unto each Allah hath promised good , but He hath bestowed on those who strive a great reward above the sedentary ;
96 . Degrees of rank from Him , and forgiveness and mercy . Allah is ever Forgiving , Merciful .
97 . Lo! as for those whom the angels take ( in death ) while they wrong themselves , ( the angels ) will ask : In what were ye engaged? They will say : We were oppressed in the land . ( The angels ) will say : Was not Allah ' s earth spacious that ye could have migrated therein? As for such , their habitation will be hell , an evil journey ' s end ;
98 . Except the feeble among men , and the women , and the children , who are unable to devise a plan and are not shown a way .
99 . As for such , it may be that Allah will pardon them . Allah is ever Clement , Forgiving .
100 . Whoso migrateth for the cause of Allah will find much refuge and abundance in the earth , and whoso forsaketh his home , a fugitive unto Allah and His messenger , and death overtaketh him , his reward is then incumbent on Allah . Allah is ever Forgiving , Merciful .
101 . And when ye go forth in the land , it is no sin for you to curtail ( your ) worship if ye fear that those who disbelieve may attack you . In truth the disbelievers are an open enemy to you .
102 . And when thou ( O Muhammad ) art among them and arrangest ( their ) worship for them , let only a party of them stand with thee ( to worship ) and let them take their arms . Then when they have performed their prostrations let them fall to the rear and let another party come that hath not worshipped and let them worship with thee , and let them take their precaution and their arms . Those who disbelieve long for you to neglect your arms and your baggage that they may attack you once for all . It is no sin for you to lay aside your arms , if rain impedeth you or ye are sick . But take your precaution . Lo! Allah prepareth for the disbelievers shameful punishment .
103 . When ye have performed the act of worship , remember Allah , standing , sitting and reclining . And when ye are in safety , observe proper worship . Worship at fixed hours hath been enjoined on the believers .
104 . Relent not in pursuit of the enemy . If ye are suffering , lo! they suffer even as ye suffer and ye hope from Allah that for which they cannot hope . Allah is ever Knower , Wise .
105 . Lo! We reveal unto thee the Scripture with the truth , that thou mayst judge between mankind by that which Allah showeth thee . And be not thou a pledder for the treacherous ;
106 . And seek forgiveness of Allah . Lo! Allah is ever Forgiving , Merciful .
107 . And plead not on behalf of ( people ) who deceive themselves . Lo! Allah loveth not one who is treacherous and sinful .
108 . They seek to hide from men and seek not to hide from Allah . He is with them when by night they hold discourse displeasing unto Him . Allah ever surroundeth what they do .
109 . Lo! ye are they who pleaded for them in the life of the world . But who will plead with Allah for them on the Day of Resurrection , or who will then be their defender?
110 . Yet whoso doeth evil or wrongeth his own soul , then seeketh pardon of Allah , will find Allah Forgiving , Merciful .
111 . Whoso committeth sin committeth it only against himself . Allah is ever Knower , Wise .
112 . And whoso committeth a delinquency or crime , then throweth ( the blame ) thereof upon the innocent , hath burdened himself with falsehood and a flagrant crime .
113 . But for the grace of Allah upon thee ( Muhammad ) , and His mercy , a party of them had resolved to mislead thee , but they will mislead only themselves and they will hurt thee not at all . Allah revealeth unto thee the Scripture and wisdom , and teacheth thee that which thou knewest not . The grace of Allah toward thee hath been infinite .
114 . There is no good in much of their secret conferences save ( in ) him who enjoineth alms giving and kindness and peace making among the people . Whoso doeth that , seeking the good pleasure of Allah , We shall bestow on him a vast reward .
115 . And whoso opposeth the messenger after the guidance ( of Allah ) hath been manifested unto him , and followeth other than the believer ' s way , We appoint for him that unto which he himself hath turned , and expose him unto hell a hapless journey ' s end!
116 . Lo! Allah pardoneth not that partners should be ascribed unto him . He pardoneth all save that to whom He will . Whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah hath wandered far astray .
117 . They invoke in His stead only females ; they pray to none else than Satan , a rebel
118 . Whom Allah cursed , and he said : Surely I will take of Thy bondmen an appointed portion ,
119 . And surely I will lead them astray , and surely I will arouse desires in them , and surely I will command them and they will cut the cattle ' s ears , and surely I will command them and they will change Allah ' s creation . Whoso chooseth Satan for a patron instead of Allah is verily a loser and his loss is manifest .
120 . He promiseth them and stirreth up desires in them , and Satan promiseth them only to beguile .
121 . For such , their habitation will be hell , and they will find no refuge therefrom .
122 . But as for those who believe and do good works We shall bring them into gardens underneath which rivers flow , wherein they will abide for ever . It is a promise from Allah in truth ; and who can be more truthful than Allah in utterance?
123 . It will not be in accordance with your desires , nor the desires of the People of the Scripture . He who doeth wrong will have the recompense thereof , and will not find against Allah any protecting friend or helper .
124 . And whoso doeth good works , whether of male or female , and he ( or she ) is a believer , such will enter paradise and they will not be wronged the dint in a date stone .
125 . Who is better in religion than he who surrendereth his purpose to Allah while doing good ( to men ) and followeth the tradition of Abraham , the upright? Allah ( Himself ) chose Abraham for friend .
126 . Unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth . Allah ever surroundeth all things .
127 . They consult thee concerning women . Say : Allah give to you decree concerning them , and the Scripture which hath been recited unto you ( giveth decree ) , concerning female orphans unto whom ye give not that which is ordained for them though ye desire to marry them , and ( concerning ) the weak among children , and that ye should deal justly with orphans . Whatever good ye do , lo! Allah is ever Aware of it .
128 . If a woman feareth ill treatment from her husband , or desertion , it is no sin for them twain if they make terms of peace between themselves . Peace is better . But greed hath been made present in the minds ( of men ) . If ye do good and keep from evil , Lo! Allah is ever Informed of what ye do .
129 . Ye will not be able to deal equally between ( your ) wives , however much ye wish ( to do so ) : But turn not altogether away ( from one ) , leaving her as in suspense . If ye do good and keep from evil , lo! Allah is ever Forgiving , Merciful .
130 . But if they separate , Allah will compensate each out of His abundance . Allah is ever All Embracing , All Knowing .
131 . Unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth And We charged those who received the Scripture before you , and ( We charge ) you , that ye keep your duty toward Allah . And if ye disbelieve , lo! unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth , and Allah is ever Absolute , Owner of Praise .
132 . Unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth . And Allah is sufficient as Defender .
133 . If He will , He can remove you , O people , and produce others ( in your stead ) . Allah is Able to do that .
134 . Whoso desireth the reward of the world , ( let him know that ) with Allah is the reward of the world and the Hereafter . Allah is ever Hearer , Seer .
135 . O ye who believe ! Be ye staunch in justice , witnesses for Allah , even though it be against yourselves or ( your ) parents or ( your ) kindred , whether ( the case be of ) a rich man or a poor man , for Allah is nearer unto both ( than ye are ) . So follow not passion lest ye lapse ( from truth ) and if ye lapse or fall away , then lo! Allah is ever Informed of what ye do .
136 . O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His messenger and the Scripture which He hath revealed unto His messenger , and the Scripture which He revealed aforetime . Whoso disbelieveth in Allah and His angels and His scriptures and His messengers and the Last Day , he verily hath wandered far astray .
137 . Lo! those who believe , then disbelieve and then ( again ) believe , then disbelieve , and then increase in disbelief , Allah will never pardon them , nor will He guide them unto a way .
138 . Bear unto the hypocrites the tidings that for them there is a painful doom ;
139 . Those who choose disbelievers for their friends instead of believers! Do they look for power at their hands? Lo! all power appertaineth to Allah .
140 . He hath already revealed unto you in the Scripture that , when ye hear the revelations of Allah rejected and derided , ( ye ) sit not with them ( who disbelieve and mock ) until they engage in some other conversation . Lo ! in that case ( if ye stayed ) ye would be like unto them . Lo! Allah will gather hypocrites and disbelievers , all together , into hell ;
141 . Those who wait upon occasion in regard to you and , if a victory cometh unto you from Allah , say : Are we not with you? and if the disbelievers meet with a success say : Had we not the mastery of you , and did we not protect you from the believers? Allah will judge between you at the Day of Resurrection , and Allah will not give the disbelievers any way ( of success ) against the believers .
142 . Lo! the hypocrites seek to beguile Allah , but it is Allah who beguileth them . When they stand up to worship they perform it languidly and to be seen of men , and are mindful of Allah but little ;
143 . Swaying between this ( and that ) , ( belonging ) neither to these nor to those . He whom Allah causeth to go astray , thou ( O Muhammad ) wilt not find a way for him :
144 . O ye who believe! Choose not disbelievers for ( your ) friends in place of believers . Would ye give Allah a clear warrant against you?
145 . Lo! the hypocrites ( will be ) in the lowest deep of the fire , and thou wilt find no helper for them ;
146 . Save those who repent and amend and hold fast to Allah and make their religion pure for Allah ( only ) . Those are with the believers . And Allah will bestow on the believers an immense reward .
147 . What concern hath Allah for your punishment if ye are thankful ( for His mercies ) and believe ( in Him ) ? Allah was ever Responsive , Aware .
148 . Allah loveth not the utterance of harsh speech save by one who hath been wronged . Allah is ever Nearer , Knower .
149 . If ye do good openly or keep it secret , or forgive evil , lo ! Allah is Forgiving , Powerful .
150 . Lo! those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers , and seek to make distinction between Allah and His messengers , and say : We believe in some and disbelieve in others , and seek to choose a way in between ;
151 . Such are disbelievers in truth ; and for disbelievers We prepare a shameful doom .
152 . But those who believe in Allah and His messengers and make no distinction between any of them , unto them Allah will give their wages ; and Allah was ever Forgiving , Merciful .
153 . The People of the Scripture ask of thee that thou shouldst cause an ( actual ) Book to descend upon them from heaven . They asked a greater thing of Moses aforetime , for they said : Show us Allah plainly . The storm of lightning seized them for their wickedness . Then ( even after that ) they chose the calf ( for worship ) after clear proofs ( of Allah ' s Sovereignty ) had come unto them . And We forgave them that! And We bestowed on Moses evident authority .
154 . And We caused the Mount to tower above them at ( the taking of ) their covenant : and We bade them : Enter the gate , prostrate! and we bade them : Transgress not the Sabbath! and We took from them a firm covenant .
155 . Then because of their breaking of their covenant , and their disbelieving in the revelations of Allah , and their slaying of the Prophets wrongfully , and their saying : Our hearts are hardened Nay , but Allah hath set a seal upon them for their disbelief , so that they believe not save a few
156 . And because of their disbelief and of their speaking against Mary a tremendous calumny ;
157 . And because of their saying : We slew the Messiah Jesus son of Mary , Allah ' s messenger They slew him not nor crucified , but it appeared so unto them ; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof ; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture ; they slew him not for certain ,
158 . But Allah took him up unto Himself . Allah was ever Mighty , wise .
159 . There is not one of the People of the Scripture but will believe in him before his death , and on the Day of Resurrection he will be a witness against them
160 . Because of the wrongdoing of the Jews We forbade them good things which were ( before ) made lawful unto them , and because of their much hindering from Allah ' s way ,
161 . And of their taking usury when they were forbidden it , and of their devouring people ' s wealth by false pretences . We have prepared for those of them who disbelieve a painful doom .
162 . But those of them who are firm in knowledge and the believers believe in that which is revealed unto thee , and that which was revealed before thee , especially the diligent in prayer and those who pay the poor due , the believers in Allah and the Last Day . Upon these We shall bestow immense reward .
163 . Lo! We inspire thee as We inspired Noah and the prophets after him , as We inspired Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes , and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon , and as we imparted unto David the Psalms ;
164 . And messengers We have mentioned unto thee before and messengers We have not mentioned unto thee ; and Allah spake directly unto Moses ;
165 . Messengers of good cheer and off warning , in order that mankind might have no argument against Allah after the messengers . Allah was ever Mighty , Wise .
166 . But Allah ( Himself ) testifieth concerning that which He hath revealed unto thee ; in His knowledge hath He revealed it ; and the Angels also testify . And Allah is sufficient witness .
167 . Lo! those who disbelieve and hinder ( others ) from the way of Allah , they verily have wandered far astray .
168 . Lo! those who disbelieve and deal in wrong , Allah will never forgive them , neither will He guide them unto a road .
169 . Except the road of hell , wherein they will abide for ever . And that is ever easy for Allah .
170 . O mankind! The messenger hath come unto you with the truth from your Lord . Therefor believe ; ( it is ) better for you . But if ye disbelieve , still , lo! unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth . Allah is ever Knower , Wise .
171 . O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth . The Messiah , Jesus son of Mary , was only a messenger of Allah , and His word which He conveyed unto Mary , and a spirit from Him . So believe in Allah and His messengers , and say not "Three" . Cease! ( it is ) better for you! Allah is only One God . Far is it removed from His transcendent majesty that he should have a son . His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth . And Allah is sufficient as Defender .
172 . The Messiah will never scorn to be a slave unto Allah , nor will the favored angels . Whoso scorneth His service and is proud , all such will He assemble unto Him ;
173 . Then , as for those who believed and did good works , unto them will He pay their wages in full , adding unto them of His bounty ; and as for those who were scornful and proud , them will He punish with a painful doom .
And they will not find for them , against Allah , any protecting friend or helper .
174 . O mankind! Now hath a proof from your Lord come unto you , and We have sent down unto you a clear light ;
175 . As for those who believe in Allah , and hold fast unto Him , them He will cause to enter into His mercy and grace , and will guide them unto Him by a straight road .
176 . They ask thee for a pronouncement . Say : Allah hath pronounced for you concerning distant kindred . If a man die childless and he have a sister , hers is half the heritage , and he would have inherited from her had she died childless . And if there be two sisters , then theirs are two-thirds of the heritage , and if they be brethren , men and women , unto the male is the equivalent of the share of two females . Allah expoundeth unto you , so that ye err not . Allah is Knower of all things .
