    ==============================


    Surah . 3

    101. And how would ye deny Faith while unto you are rehearsed the Signs of Allah,
    and among you Lives the Messenger. Whoever holds firmly to Allah will be
    shown a way that is straight.

    102. O ye who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die
    not except in a state of Islam.

    103. And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you),
    and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah.s
    favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love,
    so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the
    pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear to you:
    That ye may be guided.

    104. Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good,
    enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the
    ones to attain felicity.

    105. Be not like those who are divided amongst themselves and fall into
    disputations after receiving Clear Signs: For them is a dreadful penalty,-

    106. On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some
    faces will be (in the gloom of) black: To those whose faces will be black,
    (will be said): "Did ye reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the penalty
    for rejecting Faith."

    107. But those whose faces will be (lit with) white,- they will be in (the light of)
    Allah.s mercy: therein to dwell (for ever).

    108. These are the Signs of Allah. We rehearse them to thee in Truth:
    And Allah means no injustice to any of His creatures.

    109. To Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: To Him do all
    questions go back (for decision).

    110. Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right,
    forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the
    Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith,
    but most of them are perverted transgressors.

    111. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; if they come
    out to fight you, they will show you their backs, and no help shall they get.

    112. Shame is pitched over them (Like a tent) wherever they are found,
    except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah and from men;
    they draw on themselves wrath from Allah, and pitched over them is
    (the tent of) destitution. This because they rejected the Signs of Allah,
    and slew the prophets in defiance of right; this because they rebelled and
    transgressed beyond bounds.

    113. Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book are a portion that
    stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of Allah all night long,
    and they prostrate themselves in adoration.

    114. They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right,
    and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works:
    They are in the ranks of the righteous.

    115. Of the good that they do, nothing will be rejected of them;
    for Allah knoweth well those that do right.

    116. Those who reject Faith,- neither their possessions nor their (numerous)
    progeny will avail them aught against Allah. They will be companions of the Fire,-
    dwelling therein (for ever).

    117. What they spend in the life of this (material) world May be likened to a
    wind which brings a nipping frost: It strikes and destroys the harvest of men
    who have wronged their own souls: it is not Allah that hath wronged them,
    but they wrong themselves.

    118. O ye who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks:
    They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin: Rank hatred
    has already appeared from their mouths: What their hearts conceal is
    far worse. We have made plain to you the Signs, if ye have wisdom.

    119. Ah! ye are those who love them, but they love you not,- though ye
    believe in the whole of the Book. When they meet you, they say,
    "We believe": But when they are alone, they bite off the very tips of their fingers
    at you in their rage. Say: "Perish in you rage; Allah knoweth
    well all the secrets of the heart."

    120. If aught that is good befalls you, it grieves them; but if some
    misfortune overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if ye are constant
    and do right, not the least harm will their cunning do to you; for Allah
    Compasseth round about all that they do.

    121. Remember that morning Thou didst leave Thy household (early)
    to post the faithful at their stations for battle: And Allah heareth and
    knoweth all things:

    122. Remember two of your parties Meditated cowardice; but Allah was
    their protector, and in Allah should the faithful (Ever) put their trust.

    123. Allah had helped you at Badr, when ye were a contemptible little force;
    then fear Allah. thus May ye show your gratitude.

    124. Remember thou saidst to the Faithful: "Is it not enough for you that
    Allah should help you with three thousand angels (Specially) sent down?

    125. "Yea, - if ye remain firm, and act aright, even if the enemy should rush
    here on you in hot haste, your Lord would help you with five thousand angels
    Making a terrific onslaught.

    126. Allah made it but a message of hope for you, and an assurance to
    your hearts: (in any case) there is no help except from Allah. The Exalted, the Wise:

    127. That He might cut off a fringe of the Unbelievers or expose them to
    infamy, and they should then be turned back, frustrated of their purpose.

    128. Not for thee, (but for Allah., is the decision: Whether He turn in mercy
    to them, or punish them; for they are indeed wrong-doers.

    129. To Allah belongeth all that is in the heavens and on earth. He forgiveth
    whom He pleaseth and punisheth whom He pleaseth; but Allah is Oft-Forgiving,
    Most Merciful.

    130. O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied;
    but fear Allah. that ye may (really) prosper.

    131. Fear the Fire, which is repaired for those who reject Faith:

    132. And obey Allah and the Messenger. that ye may obtain mercy.

    133. Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a
    Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of the heavens and of the earth,
    prepared for the righteous,-

    134. Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity;
    who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men;- for Allah loves those who do good;-

    135. And those who, having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged
    their own souls, earnestly bring Allah to mind, and ask for forgiveness for their sins,-
    and who can forgive sins except Allah.- and are never obstinate in persisting
    knowingly in (the wrong) they have done.

    136. For such the reward is forgiveness from their Lord, and Gardens with
    rivers flowing underneath,- an eternal dwelling: How excellent a recompense
    for those who work (and strive)!

    137. Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you:
    travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth.

    138. Here is a plain statement to men, a guidance and instruction to
    those who fear Allah.

    139. So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For ye must gain mastery if ye
    are true in Faith.

    140. If a wound hath touched you, be sure a similar wound hath touched
    the others. Such days (of varying fortunes) We give to men and men by turns:
    that Allah may know those that believe, and that He may take to Himself from
    your ranks Martyr-witnesses (to Truth). And Allah loveth not those that do wrong.

    141. Allah.s object also is to purge those that are true in Faith and to deprive
    of blessing Those that resist Faith.

    142. Did ye think that ye would enter Heaven without Allah testing those of
    you who fought hard (In His Cause) and remained steadfast?

    143. Ye did indeed wish for death before ye met him: Now ye have seen
    him with your own eyes, (And ye flinch!)

    144. Muhammad is no more than an apostle: many Were the apostle that
    passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then Turn back on
    your heels? If any did turn back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah.
    but Allah (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude.

    145. Nor can a soul die except by Allah.s leave, the term being fixed as by writing.
    If any do desire a reward in this life, We shall give it to him; and if any
    do desire a reward in the Hereafter, We shall give it to him. And swiftly
    shall We reward those that (serve us with) gratitude.

    146. How many of the prophets fought (in Allah.s way), and with them
    (fought) Large bands of godly men? but they never lost heart if they
    met with disaster in Allah.s way, nor did they weaken (in will) nor give in.
    And Allah Loves those who are firm and steadfast.

    147. All that they said was: "Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and anything
    We may have done that transgressed our duty: Establish our feet firmly,
    and help us against those that resist Faith."

    148. And Allah gave them a reward in this world, and the excellent reward
    of the Hereafter. For Allah Loveth those who do good.

    149. O ye who believe! If ye obey the Unbelievers, they will drive you back
    on your heels, and ye will turn back (from Faith) to your own loss.

    150. Nay, Allah is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.

    151. Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that
    they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority:
    their abode will be the Fire: And evil is the home of the wrong-doers!

    152. Allah did indeed fulfil His promise to you when ye with His permission
    Were about to annihilate your enemy,-until ye flinched and fell to disputing
    about the order, and disobeyed it after He brought you in sight (of the booty)
    which ye covet. Among you are some that hanker after this world and some
    that desire the Hereafter. Then did He divert you from your foes in order to
    test you but He forgave you: For Allah is full of grace to those who believe.

    153. Behold! ye were climbing up the high ground, without even casting a side
    glance at any one, and the Messenger in your rear was calling you back.
    There did Allah give you one distress after another by way of requital, to
    teach you not to grieve for (the booty) that had escaped you and for (the ill)
    that had befallen you. For Allah is well aware of all that ye do.

    154. After (the excitement) of the distress, He sent down calm on a band of
    you overcome with slumber, while another band was stirred to anxiety by their
    own feelings, Moved by wrong suspicions of Allah.suspicions due to ignorance.
    They said: "What affair is this of ours?" Say thou: "Indeed, this affair is
    wholly Allah.s." They hide in their minds what they dare not reveal to thee.
    They say (to themselves): "If we had had anything to do with this affair,
    We should not have been in the slaughter here." Say: "Even if you had
    remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly
    have gone forth to the place of their death"; but (all this was) that Allah
    might test what is in your ******* and purge what is in your hearts. For Allah
    knoweth well the secrets of your hearts.

    155. Those of you who turned back on the day the two hosts Met,-it was
    Satan who caused them to fail, because of some (evil) they had done.
    But Allah Has blotted out (their fault): For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing.

    156. O ye who believe! Be not like the Unbelievers, who say of their brethren,
    when they are travelling through the Earth or engaged in fighting:
    "If they had stayed with us, they would not have died, or been slain.
    " This that Allah may make it a cause of sighs and regrets in their hearts.
    It is Allah that gives Life and Death, and Allah sees well all that ye do.

    157. And if ye are slain, or die, in the way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy
    from Allah are far better than all they could amass.

    158. And if ye die, or are slain, Lo! it is unto Allah that ye are brought together.

    159. It is part of the Mercy of Allah that thou dost deal gently with them
    Wert thou severe or harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about thee:
    so pass over (Their faults), and ask for ((Allah)'s) forgiveness for them;
    and consult them in affairs (of moment). Then, when thou hast Taken a
    decision put thy trust in Allah. For Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).

    160. If Allah helps you, none can overcome you: If He forsakes you,
    who is there, after that, that can help you? in Allah, then, Let believers put their trust.

    161. No prophet could (ever) be false to his trust. If any person is so false,
    He shall, on the Day of Judgment, restore what he misappropriated; then
    shall every soul receive its due,- whatever it earned,- and none shall be
    dealt with unjustly.

    162. Is the man who follows the good pleasure of Allah Like the man who
    draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and whose abode is in Hell?- A woeful refuge!

    163. They are in varying gardens in the sight of Allah, and Allah sees
    well all that they do.

    164. Allah did confer a great favour on the believers when He sent among
    them an apostle from among themselves, rehearsing unto them the Signs of Allah,
    sanctifying them, and instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom, while,
    before that, they had been in manifest error.

    165. What! When a single disaster smites you, although ye smote (your enemies)
    with one twice as great, do ye say?- "Whence is this?" Say (to them):
    "It is from yourselves: For Allah hath power over all things."

    166. What ye suffered on the day the two armies Met, was with the leave of
    Allah, in order that He might test the believers,-

    167. And the Hypocrites also. These were told: "Come, fight in the way
    of Allah, or (at least) drive (The foe from your city)." They said:
    "Had we known how to fight, we should certainly have followed you.
    " They were that day nearer to Unbelief than to Faith, saying with their
    lips what was not in their hearts but Allah hath full knowledge of all they conceal.

    168. (They are) the ones that say, (of their brethren slain), while they
    themselves sit (at ease): "If only they had listened to us they would
    not have been slain." Say: "Avert death from your own selves, if ye speak the truth."

    169. Think not of those who are slain in Allah.s way as dead. Nay, they live,
    finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord;

    170. They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah. And with regard to those
    left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory
    in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve.

    171. They glory in the Grace and the bounty from Allah, and in the fact that Allah
    suffereth not the reward of the Faithful to be lost (in the least).

    172. Of those who answered the call of Allah and the Messenger, even after
    being wounded, those who do right and refrain from wrong have a great reward;-

    173. Men said to them: "A great army is gathering against you": And frightened them:
    But it (only) increased their Faith: They said: "For us Allah sufficeth, and
    He is the best disposer of affairs."

    174. And they returned with Grace and bounty from Allah. no harm ever
    touched them: For they followed the good pleasure of Allah. And Allah is
    the Lord of bounties unbounded.

    175. It is only the Evil One that suggests to you the fear of his votaries:
    Be ye not afraid of them, but fear Me, if ye have Faith.

    176. Let not those grieve thee who rush headlong into Unbelief: Not the
    east harm will they do to Allah. Allah.s plan is that He will give them no portion
    in the Hereafter, but a severe punishment.

    177. Those who purchase Unbelief at the price of faith,- not the least harm will
    they do to Allah, but they will have a grievous punishment.

    178. Let not the Unbelievers think that our respite to them is good for themselves:
    We grant them respite that they may grow in their iniquity: But they will have
    a shameful punishment.

    179. Allah will not leave the believers in the state in which ye are now, until
    He separates what is evil from what is good nor will He disclose to you the
    secrets of the Unseen. But He chooses of His Messenger. (For the purpose)
    whom He pleases. So believe in Allah. And His apostles: And if ye believe
    and do right, ye have a reward without measure.

    180. And let not those who covetously withhold of the gifts which Allah
    Hath given them of His Grace, think that it is good for them: Nay, it will be
    the worse for them: soon shall the things which they covetously withheld be
    tied to their necks Like a twisted collar, on the Day of Judgment. To Allah
    belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is well-acquainted
    with all that ye do.

    181. Allah hath heard the taunt of those who say: "Truly, Allah is indigent
    and we are rich!"- We shall certainly record their word and (their act) of
    slaying the prophets in defiance of right, and We shall say: "Taste ye the
    penalty of the Scorching Fire!

    182. "This is because of the (unrighteous deeds) which your hands sent
    on before ye: For Allah never harms those who serve Him."

    183. They (also) said: "(Allah) took our promise not to believe in an apostle
    unless He showed us a sacrifice consumed by Fire (From heaven)." Say:
    "There came to you apostles before me, with clear Signs and even with
    what ye ask for: why then did ye slay them, if ye speak the truth?"

    184. Then if they reject thee, so were rejected apostles before thee,
    who came with Clear Signs, Books of dark prophecies, and the Book of
    Enlightenment.

    185. Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment
    shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the
    Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life):
    For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception.

    186. Ye shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions and in your
    personal selves; and ye shall certainly Hear much that will grieve you, from
    those who received the Book before you and from those who worship many gods.
    But if ye persevere patiently, and guard against evil,-then that will be a
    determining factor in all affairs.

    187. And remember Allah took a covenant from the People of the Book,
    to make it known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it; but they threw
    it away behind their backs, and purchased with it some miserable gain!
    And vile was the bargain they made!

    188. Think not that those who exult in what they have brought about,
    and love to be praised for what they have not done,- think escape the penalty.
    For them is a penalty Grievous indeed.

    189. To Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth; and
    Allah hath power over all things.

    190. Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation
    of night and day,- there are indeed Signs for men of understanding,-

    191. Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying
    down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the
    heavens and the earth, (With the thought): "Our Lord! not for naught Hast
    Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire.

    192. "Our Lord! any whom Thou dost admit to the Fire, Truly Thou coverest
    with shame, and never will wrong-doers Find any helpers!

    193. "Our Lord! we have heard the call of one calling (Us) to Faith,
    'Believe ye in the Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins,
    blot out from us our iniquities, and take to Thyself our souls in the
    company of the righteous.

    194. "Our Lord! Grant us what Thou didst promise unto us through Thine apostles,
    and save us from shame on the Day of Judgment: For Thou never breakest Thy promise."

    195. And their Lord hath accepted of them, and answered them:
    will I suffer to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female:
    Ye are members, one of another: Those who have left their homes,
    or been driven out therefrom, or suffered harm in My Cause, or fought
    or been slain,- verily, I will blot out from them their iniquities, and admit them
    into Gardens with rivers flowing beneath;- A reward from the presence of Allah,
    and from His presence is the best of rewards."

    196. Let not the strutting about of the Unbelievers through the land deceive thee:

    197. Little is it for enjoyment: Their ultimate abode is Hell:
    what an evil bed (To lie on)!

    198. On the other hand, for those who fear their Lord, are Gardens,
    with rivers flowing beneath; therein are they to dwell (for ever),- a gift from
    the presence of Allah. and that which is in the presence of Allah is the best
    (bliss) for the righteous.

    199. And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book, those who
    believe in Allah, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them,
    bowing in humility to Allah. They will not sell the Signs of Allah for a miserable gain!
    For them is a reward with their Lord, and Allah is swift in account.

    200. O ye who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah. that ye may prosper.

    sistent rebel!


    118. Allah did curse him, but he said: "I will take of Thy servants a portion Marked off;

    119. "I will mislead them, and I will create in them false desires;
    I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and to deface the (fair)
    nature created by Allah." Whoever, forsaking Allah, takes satan for a
    friend, hath of a surety suffered a loss that is manifest.

    120. Satan makes them promises, and creates in them false desires;
    but satan's promises are nothing but deception.

    121. They (his dupes) will have their dwelling in Hell, and from it they
    will find no way of escape.

    122. But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness,-
    we shall soon admit them to gardens, with rivers flowing beneath,-
    to dwell therein for ever. Allah.s promise is the truth, and whose word can be truer than Allah.s?

    123. Not your desires, nor those of the People of the Book (can prevail):
    whoever works evil, will be requited accordingly. Nor will he find, besides
    Allah, any protector or helper.

    124. If any do deeds of righteousness,- be they male or female - and have faith,
    they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them.

    125. Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to
    Allah, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For Allah
    did take Abraham for a friend.

    126. But to Allah belong all things in the heavens and on earth: And He it is that
    Encompasseth all things.

    127. They ask thy instruction concerning the women say: Allah doth instruct
    you about them: And (remember) what hath been rehearsed unto you in the
    Book, concerning the orphans of women to whom ye give not the portions
    prescribed, and yet whom ye desire to marry, as also concerning the children
    who are weak and oppressed: that ye stand firm for justice to orphans.
    There is not a good deed which ye do, but Allah is well-acquainted therewith.

    128. If a wife fears cruelty or desertion on her husband's part, there is no
    blame on them if they arrange an amicable settlement between themselves;
    and such settlement is best; even though men's souls are swayed by greed.
    But if ye do good and practise self-restraint, Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.

    129. Ye are never able to be fair and just as between women, even if it is
    your ardent desire: But turn not away (from a woman) altogether, so as to
    leave her (as it were) hanging (in the air). If ye come to a friendly understanding,
    and practise self- restraint, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    130. But if they disagree (and must part), Allah will provide abundance for
    all from His all-reaching bounty: for Allah is He that careth for all and is Wise.

    131. To Allah belong all things in the heavens and on earth. Verily we have
    directed the People of the Book before you, and you (o Muslims) to fear Allah.
    But if ye deny Him, lo! unto Allah belong all things in the heavens and on earth,
    and Allah is free of all wants, worthy of all praise.

    132. Yea, unto Allah belong all things in the heavens and on earth, and enough
    is Allah to carry through all affairs.

    133. If it were His will, He could destroy you, o mankind, and create another race;
    for He hath power this to do.

    134. If any one desires a reward in this life, in Allah.s (gift) is the reward (both)
    of this life and of the hereafter: for Allah is He that heareth and seeth (all things).

    135. O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah,
    even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be
    (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts
    (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice,
    verily Allah is well- acquainted with all that ye do.

    136. O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the scripture
    which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those
    before (him). Any who denieth Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messenger.,
    and the Day of Judgment, hath gone far, far astray.

    137. Those who believe, then reject faith, then believe (again) and (again)
    reject faith, and go on increasing in unbelief,- Allah will not forgive them nor
    guide them nor guide them on the way.

    138. To the Hypocrites give the glad tidings that there is for them (but) a
    grievous penalty;-

    139. Yea, to those who take for friends unbelievers rather than believers:
    is it honour they seek among them? Nay,- all honour is with Allah.

    140. Already has He sent you Word in the Book, that when ye hear the signs
    of Allah held in defiance and ridicule, ye are not to sit with them unless they
    turn to a different theme: if ye did, ye would be like them. For Allah will collect the
    hypocrites and those who defy faith - all in Hell:-

    141. (These are) the ones who wait and watch about you: if ye do gain a
    victory from Allah, they say: "Were we not with you?"- but if the unbelievers
    gain a success, they say (to them): "Did we not gain an advantage over you,
    and did we not guard you from the believers?" but Allah will judge betwixt
    you on the Day of Judgment. And never will Allah grant to the unbelievers a way
    (to triumphs) over the believers.

    142. The Hypocrites - they think they are over-reaching Allah, but He will over-
    reach them: When they stand up to prayer, they stand without earnestness,
    to be seen of men, but little do they hold Allah in remembrance;

    143. (They are) distracted in mind even in the midst of it,- being (sincerely)
    for neither one group nor for another whom Allah leaves straying,- never wilt
    thou find for him the way.

    144. O ye who believe! Take not for friends unbelievers rather than believers:
    Do ye wish to offer Allah an open proof against yourselves?

    145. The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire: no helper wilt
    thou find for them;-

    146. Except for those who repent, mend (their lives) hold fast to Allah, and
    purify their religion as in Allah.s sight: if so they will be (numbered) with the
    believers. And soon will Allah grant to the believers a reward of immense value.

    147. What can Allah gain by your punishment, if ye are grateful and ye believe?
    Nay, it is Allah that recogniseth (all good), and knoweth all things.

    148. Allah loveth not that evil should be noised abroad in public speech,
    except where injustice hath been done; for Allah is He who heareth and
    knoweth all things.

    149. Whether ye publish a good deed or conceal it or cover evil with pardon,
    verily Allah doth blot out (sins) and hath power (in the judgment of values).

    150. Those who deny Allah and His apostles, and (those who) wish to separate
    Allah from His apostles, saying: "We believe in some but reject others":
    And (those who) wish to take a course midway,-

    151. They are in truth (equally) unbelievers; and we have prepared for
    unbelievers a humiliating punishment.

    152. To those who believe in Allah and His apostles and make no distinction
    between any of the apostles, we shall soon give their (due) rewards: for
    Allah is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful.

    153. The people of the Book ask thee to cause a book to descend to them
    from heaven: Indeed they asked Moses for an even greater (miracle),
    for they said: "Show us Allah in public," but they were dazed for their
    presumption, with thunder and lightning. Yet they worshipped the calf even
    after clear signs had come to them; even so we forgave them; and gave Moses
    manifest proofs of authority.

    154. And for their covenant we raised over them (the towering height) of Mount
    (Sinai); and (on another occasion) we said: "Enter the gate with humility"; and
    (once again) we commanded them: "Transgress not in the matter of the sabbath.
    " And we took from them a solemn covenant.

    155. (They have incurred divine displeasure): In that they broke their covenant;
    that they rejected the signs of Allah. that they slew the Messengers in defiance of
    right; that they said, "Our hearts are the wrappings (which preserve Allah.s Word;
    We need no more)";- Nay, Allah hath set the seal on their hearts for their
    blasphemy, and little is it they believe;-

    156. That they rejected Faith; that they uttered against Mary a grave false charge;

    157. That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary,
    the Messenger of Allah.;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so
    it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts,
    with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they
    killed him not:-

    158. Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-

    159. And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him
    before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them;-

    160. For the iniquity of the Jews We made unlawful for them certain (foods)
    good and wholesome which had been lawful for them;- in that they hindered
    many from Allah.s Way;-

    161. That they took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they
    devoured men's substance wrongfully;- we have prepared for those among
    them who reject faith a grievous punishment.

    162. But those among them who are well-grounded in knowledge, and the
    believers, believe in what hath been revealed to thee and what was revealed
    before thee: And (especially) those who establish regular prayer and practise
    regular charity and believe in Allah and in the Last Day: To them shall
    We soon give a great reward.

    163. We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers
    after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the
    Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.

    164. Of some apostles We have already told thee the story; of others We have not;-
    and to Moses Allah spoke direct;-

    165. Messenger. who gave good news as well as warning, that mankind, after
    (the coming) of the apostles, should have no plea against Allah. For Allah is
    Exalted in Power, Wise.

    166. But Allah beareth witness that what He hath sent unto thee He hath
    sent from His (own) knowledge, and the angels bear witness: But enough is
    Allah for a witness.

    167. Those who reject Faith and keep off (men) from the way of Allah,
    have verily strayed far, far away from the Path.

    168. Those who reject Faith and do wrong,- Allah will not forgive them nor
    guide them to any way-

    169. Except the way of Hell, to dwell therein for ever. And this to Allah is easy.

    170. O Mankind! The Messenger hath come to you in truth from Allah.
    believe in him: It is best for you. But if ye reject Faith, to Allah belong all things
    in the heavens and on earth: And Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

    171. O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of
    Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than)
    an apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit
    proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" :
    desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah. Glory be to Him:
    (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the
    heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

    172. Christ disdaineth nor to serve and worship Allah, nor do the angels,
    those nearest (to Allah.: those who disdain His worship and are arrogant,
    -He will gather them all together unto Himself to (answer).

    173. But to those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, He will give
    their (due) rewards,- and more, out of His bounty: But those who are
    disdainful and arrogant, He will punish with a grievous penalty; Nor will they
    find, besides Allah, any to protect or help them.

    174. O mankind! verily there hath come to you a convincing proof from your
    Lord: For We have sent unto you a light (that is) manifest.

    175. Then those who believe in Allah, and hold fast to Him,- soon will He
    admit them to mercy and grace from Himself, and guide them to
    Himself by a straight way.

    176. They ask thee for a legal decision. Say: Allah directs (thus) about those
    who leave no descendants or ascendants as heirs. If it is a man that dies, l
    eaving a sister but no child, she shall have half the inheritance: If
    (such a deceased was) a woman, who left no child, Her brother takes her
    inheritance: If there are two sisters, they shall have two-thirds of the
    inheritance (between them): if there are brothers and sisters, (they share), t
    he male having twice the share of the female. Thus doth Allah make clear to you (His law), lest ye err. And Allah hath knowledge of all things.

    Surah 4. Women

    1. O mankind! reverence your Guardian-Lord, who created you from
    a single person, created, of like nature, His mate, and from them twain
    scattered (like seeds) countless men and women;- reverence Allah, through
    whom ye demand your mutual (rights), and (reverence) the wombs
    (That bore you): for Allah ever watches over you.

    2. To orphans restore their property (When they reach their age), nor
    substitute (your) worthless things for (their) good ones; and devour
    not their substance (by mixing it up) with your own. For this is indeed a great sin.

    3. If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans,
    Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye
    shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive)
    that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you
    from doing injustice.

    4. And give the women (on marriage) their dower as a free gift; but if they,
    of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, Take it and enjoy
    it with right good cheer.

    5. To those weak of understanding Make not over your property, which
    Allah hath made a means of support for you, but feed and clothe them therewith,
    and speak to them words of kindness and justice.

    6. Make trial of orphans until they reach the age of marriage; if then ye find
    sound judgment in them, release their property to them; but consume it not
    wastefully, nor in haste against their growing up. If the guardian is well-off,
    Let him claim no remuneration, but if he is poor, let him have for himself what
    is just and reasonable. When ye release their property to them, take witnesses
    in their presence: But all-sufficient is Allah in taking account.

    7. From what is left by parents and those nearest related there is a share for men
    and a share for women, whether the property be small or large,-a determinate share.

    8. But if at the time of division other relatives, or orphans or poor, are present,
    feed them out of the (property), and speak to them words of kindness and justice.

    9. Let those (disposing of an estate) have the same fear in their minds as they
    would have for their own if they had left a helpless family behind:
    Let them fear Allah, and speak words of appropriate (comfort).

    10. Those who unjustly eat up the property of orphans, eat up a Fire into their
    own bodies: They will soon be enduring a Blazing Fire!

    11. Allah (thus) directs you as regards your Children's (Inheritance):
    to the male, a portion equal to that of two females: if only daughters, two or more,
    their share is two-thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is a half.
    For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children;
    if no children, and the parents are the (only) heirs, the mother has a third;
    if the deceased Left brothers (or sisters) the mother has a sixth.
    (The distribution in all cases ('s) after the payment of legacies and debts.
    Ye know not whether your parents or your children are nearest to you in benefit.
    These are settled portions ordained by Allah. and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

    12. In what your wives leave, your share is a half, if they leave no child;
    but if they leave a child, ye get a fourth; after payment of legacies and debts.
    In what ye leave, their share is a fourth, if ye leave no child; but if ye leave a child,
    they get an eighth; after payment of legacies and debts. If the man or woman whose inheritance is in question, has left neither ascendants nor descendants, but has
    left a brother or a sister, each one of the two gets a sixth; but if more than two,
    they share in a third; after payment of legacies and debts; so that no loss is
    caused (to any one). Thus is it ordained by Allah. and Allah is All-knowing,
    Most Forbearing.

    13. Those are limits set by Allah. those who obey Allah and His Messenger will be
    admitted to Gardens with rivers flowing beneath, to abide therein (for ever)
    and that will be the supreme achievement.

    14. But those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and transgress His limits
    will be admitted to a Fire, to abide therein: And they shall have a
    humiliating punishment.

    15. If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence of four
    (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify,
    confine them to houses until death do claim them, or Allah ordain for
    them some (other) way.

    16. If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they
    repent and amend, Leave them alone; for Allah is Oft-returning, Most Merciful.

    17. Allah accept the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and repent
    soon afterwards; to them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full of
    knowledge and wisdom.

    18. Of no effect is the repentance of those who continue to do evil, until
    death faces one of them, and he says, "Now have I repented indeed;
    " nor of those who die rejecting Faith: for them have We prepared a
    punishment most grievous.

    19. O ye who believe! Ye are forbidden to inherit women against their will.
    Nor should ye treat them with harshness, that ye may Take away part of the
    dower ye have given them,-except where they have been guilty of open
    lewdness; on the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity.
    If ye take a dislike to them it may be that ye dislike a thing, and Allah brings
    about through it a great deal of good.

    20. But if ye decide to take one wife in place of another, even if ye had given
    the latter a whole treasure for dower, Take not the least bit of it back: Would
    ye take it by slander and manifest wrong?

    21. And how could ye take it when ye have gone in unto each other, and they
    have Taken from you a solemn covenant?

    22. And marry not women whom your fathers married,- except what is past:
    It was shameful and odious,- an abominable custom indeed.

    23. Prohibited to you (For marriage) are:- Your mothers, daughters, sisters;
    father's sisters, Mother's sisters; brother's daughters, sister's daughters;
    foster-mothers (Who gave you suck), foster-sisters; your wives' mothers;
    your step-daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom
    ye have gone in,- no prohibition if ye have not gone in;- (Those who have been)
    wives of your sons proceeding from your loins; and two sisters in wedlock
    at one and the same time, except for what is past; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful;-

    24. Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom
    your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you:
    Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage)
    with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive
    benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if,
    after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame
    on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

    25. If any of you have not the means wherewith to wed free believing
    women, they may wed believing girls from among those whom your right
    hands possess: And Allah hath full knowledge about your faith. Ye are one
    from another: Wed them with the leave of their owners, and give them
    their dowers, according to what is reasonable: They should be chaste, not lustful,
    nor taking paramours: when they are taken in wedlock, if they fall into shame, their punishment is half that for free women. This (permission) is for those among
    you who fear sin; but it is better for you that ye practise self-restraint. And Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    26. Allah doth wish to make clear to you and to show you the ordinances
    of those before you; and (He doth wish to) turn to you (In Mercy): And
    Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

    27. Allah doth wish to Turn to you, but the wish of those who follow their
    lusts is that ye should turn away (from Him),- far, far away.

    28. Allah doth wish to lighten your (difficulties): For man was created Weak
    (in flesh).

    29. O ye who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves in vanities:
    But let there be amongst you Traffic and trade by mutual good-will: Nor kill
    (or destroy) yourselves: for verily Allah hath been to you Most Merciful!

    30. If any do that in rancour and injustice,- soon shall We cast them into the Fire:
    And easy it is for Allah.

    31. If ye (but) eschew the most heinous of the things which ye are forbidden to do,
    We shall expel out of you all the evil in you, and admit you to a gate of great honour.

    32. And in no wise covet those things in which Allah Hath bestowed His gifts
    More freely on some of you than on others: To men is allotted what they
    earn, and to women what they earn: But ask Allah of His bounty. For Allah
    hath full knowledge of all things.

    33. To (benefit) every one, We have appointed shares and heirs to property
    left by parents and relatives. To those, also, to whom your right hand was
    pledged, give their due portion. For truly Allah is witness to all things.

    34. Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has
    given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them
    from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient,
    and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard.
    As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish
    them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly);
    but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance):
    For Allah is Most High, great (above you all).

    35. If ye fear a breach between them twain, appoint (two) arbiters, one from
    his family, and the other from hers; if they wish for peace, Allah will cause
    their reconciliation: For Allah hath full knowledge, and is acquainted with all things.

    36. Serve Allah, and join not any partners with Him; and do good- to parents,
    kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near, neighbours who are
    strangers, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (ye meet), and what your
    right hands possess: For Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious;-

    37. (Nor) those who are niggardly or enjoin niggardliness on others, or hide the
    bounties which Allah hath bestowed on them; for We have prepared, for those
    who resist Faith, a punishment that steeps them in contempt;-

    38. Not those who spend of their substance, to be seen of men, but have no
    faith in Allah and the Last Day: If any take the Evil One for their intimate,
    what a dreadful intimate he is!

    39. And what burden Were it on them if they had faith in Allah and in the Last Day,
    and they spent out of what Allah hath given them for sustenance? For Allah
    hath full knowledge of them.

    40. Allah is never unjust in the least degree: If there is any good (done),
    He doubleth it, and giveth from His own presence a great reward.

    41. How then if We brought from each people a witness, and We brought
    thee as a witness against these people!

    42. On that day those who reject Faith and disobey the apostle will wish
    that the earth Were made one with them: But never will they hide a single
    fact from Allah.

    43. O ye who believe! Approach not prayers with a mind befogged, until ye
    can understand all that ye say,- nor in a state of ceremonial impurity
    (Except when travelling on the road), until after washing your whole body.
    If ye are ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from offices of nature,
    or ye have been in contact with women, and ye find no water, then take for
    yourselves clean sand or earth, and rub therewith your faces and hands.
    For Allah doth blot out sins and forgive again and again.

    44. Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who were given a portion of the Book?
    they traffic in error, and wish that ye should lose the right path.

    45. But Allah hath full knowledge of your enemies: Allah is enough for a protector,
    and Allah is enough for a Helper.

    46. Of the Jews there are those who displace words from their (right) places,
    and say: "We hear and we disobey"; and "Hear what is not Heard"; and "Ra'ina";
    with a twist of their tongues and a slander to Faith. If only they had said:
    "What hear and we obey"; and "Do hear"; and "Do look at us"; it would have
    been better for them, and more proper; but Allah hath cursed them for their
    Unbelief; and but few of them will believe.

    47. O ye People of the Book! believe in what We have (now) revealed,
    confirming what was (already) with you, before We change the face and
    fame of some (of you) beyond all recognition, and turn them hindwards,
    or curse them as We cursed the Sabbath-breakers, for the decision of Allah
    Must be carried out.

    48. Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth
    anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed.

    49. Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who claim sanctity for themselves?
    Nay-but Allah Doth sanctify whom He pleaseth. But never will they fail to receive
    justice in the least little thing.

    50. Behold! how they invent a lie against Allah. but that by itself is a manifest sin!

    51. Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who were given a portion of the Book?
    they believe in sorcery and Evil, and say to the Unbelievers that they are better
    guided in the (right) way Than the believers!

    52. They are (men) whom Allah hath cursed: And those whom Allah Hath cursed,
    thou wilt find, have no one to help.

    53. Have they a share in dominion or power? Behold, they give not a farthing
    to their fellow-men?

    54. Or do they envy mankind for what Allah hath given them of his bounty?
    but We had already given the people of Abraham the Book and Wisdom, and
    conferred upon them a great kingdom.

    55. Some of them believed, and some of them averted their faces from him:
    And enough is Hell for a burning fire.

    56. Those who reject our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire: as often as
    their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins, that
    they may taste the penalty: for Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.

    57. But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, We shall soon admit
    to Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath,- their eternal home: Therein shall they have companions pure and holy: We shall admit them to shades, cool and ever deepening.

    58. Allah doth command you to render back your Trusts to those to whom they
    are due; And when ye judge between man and man, that ye judge with justice:
    Verily how excellent is the teaching which He giveth you! For Allah is He Who
    heareth and seeth all things.

    59. O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged
    with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to
    Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best,
    and most suitable for final determination.

    60. Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who declare that they believe in the
    revelations that have come to thee and to those before thee? Their (real) wish is
    to resort together for judgment (in their disputes) to the Evil One, though they
    were ordered to reject him. But Satan's wish is to lead them astray far away
    (from the right).

    61. When it is said to them: "Come to what Allah hath revealed, and to the
    Messenger.: Thou seest the Hypocrites avert their faces from thee in disgust.

    62. How then, when they are seized by misfortune, because of the deeds which
    they hands have sent forth? Then their come to thee, swearing by Allah.
    "We meant no more than good-will and conciliation!"

    63. Those men,-(Allah) knows what is in their hearts; so keep clear of them,
    but admonish them, and speak to them a word to reach their very souls.

    64. We sent not an apostle, but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah.
    If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come unto thee and
    asked Allah.s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them,
    they would have found Allah indeed Oft-returning, Most Merciful.

    65. But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make thee
    judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against
    Thy decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction.

    66. If We had ordered them to sacrifice their lives or to leave their homes,
    very few of them would have done it: But if they had done what they were
    (actually) told, it would have been best for them, and would have gone
    farthest to strengthen their (faith);

    67. And We should then have given them from our presence a great reward;

    68. And We should have shown them the Straight Way.

    69. All who obey Allah and the apostle are in the company of those on
    whom is the Grace of Allah,- of the prophets (who teach), the sincere
    (lovers of Truth), the witnesses (who testify), and the Righteous (who do good):
    Ah! what a beautiful fellowship!

    70. Such is the bounty from Allah. And sufficient is it that Allah knoweth all.

    71. O ye who believe! Take your precautions, and either go forth in parties

    72. There are certainly among you men who would tarry behind: If a
    misfortune befalls you, they say: "(Allah) did favour us in that we were not
    present among them."

    73. But if good fortune comes to you from Allah, they would be sure to say -
    as if there had never been Ties of affection between you and them - "Oh! I wish
    I had been with them; a fine thing should I then have made of it!"

    74. Let those fight in the cause of Allah Who sell the life of this world for the
    hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of Allah,- whether he is slain or
    gets victory - Soon shall We give him a reward of great (value).

    75. And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak,
    are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men, women, and children, whose cry is:
    "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise
    for us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help!"

    76. Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who reject Faith
    Fight in the cause of Evil: So fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed
    is the cunning of Satan.

    77. Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands
    (from fight) but establish regular prayers and spend in regular charity? When
    (at length) the order for fighting was issued to them, behold! a section of them
    feared men as - or even more than - they should have feared Allah. They said:
    "Our Lord! Why hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not Grant us
    respite to our (natural) term, near (enough)?" Say: "Short is the enjoyment of
    this world: the Hereafter is the best for those who do right: Never will ye be
    dealt with unjustly in the very least!

    78. "Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up
    strong and high!" If some good befalls them, they say, "This is from Allah.;
    but if evil, they say, "This is from thee" (O Prophet). Say: "All things are from Allah.
    " But what hath come to these people, that they fail to understand a single fact?

    79. Whatever good, (O man!) happens to thee, is from Allah. but whatever evil
    happens to thee, is from thy (own) soul. and We have sent thee as an apostle to
    (instruct) mankind. And enough is Allah for a witness.

    80. He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah. But if any turn away, We have not
    sent thee to watch over their (evil deeds).

    81. They have "Obedience" on their lips; but when they leave thee, a section of
    them Meditate all night on things very different from what thou tellest them.
    But Allah records their nightly (plots): So keep clear of them, and put thy trust in Allah,
    and enough is Allah as a disposer of affairs.

    82. Do they not consider the Qur'an (with care)? Had it been from other
    Than Allah, they would surely have found therein Much discrepancy.

    83. When there comes to them some matter touching (Public) safety or fear,
    they divulge it. If they had only referred it to the Messenger, or to those
    charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have
    Tested it from them (direct). Were it not for the Grace and Mercy of Allah unto you,
    all but a few of you would have fallen into the clutches of Satan.

    84. Then fight in Allah.s cause - Thou art held responsible only for thyself -
    and rouse the believers. It may be that Allah will restrain the fury of the
    Unbelievers; for Allah is the strongest in might and in punishment.

    85. Whoever recommends and helps a good cause becomes a partner therein:
    And whoever recommends and helps an evil cause, shares in its burden:
    And Allah hath power over all things.

    86. When a (courteous) greeting is offered you, meet it with a greeting
    still more courteous, or (at least) of equal courtesy. Allah takes careful
    account of all things.

    87. Allah. There is no god but He: of a surety He will gather you together
    against the Day of Judgment, about which there is no doubt. And whose word
    can be truer than Allah.s?

    88. Why should ye be divided into two parties about the Hypocrites?
    Allah hath upset them for their (evil) deeds. Would ye guide those whom
    Allah hath thrown out of the Way? For those whom Allah hath thrown out of the Way,
    never shalt thou find the Way.

    89. They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the
    same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they
    flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades,
    seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no
    friends or helpers from their ranks;-

    90. Except those who join a group between whom and you there is a treaty
    (of peace), or those who approach you with hearts restraining them from fighting
    you as well as fighting their own people. If Allah had pleased, He could have given
    them power over you, and they would have fought you: Therefore if they
    withdraw from you but fight you not, and (instead) send you (Guarantees of)
    peace, then Allah Hath opened no way for you (to war against them).

    91. Others you will find that wish to gain your confidence as well as that
    of their people: Every time they are sent back to temptation, they succumb
    thereto: if they withdraw not from you nor give you (guarantees) of peace
    besides restraining their hands, seize them and slay them wherever ye get them:
    In their case We have provided you with a clear argument against them.

    92. Never should a believer kill a believer; but (If it so happens) by mistake,
    (Compensation is due): If one (so) kills a believer, it is ordained that he should
    free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the deceased's family, unless
    they remit it freely. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you, and
    he was a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (Is enough). If he belonged
    to a people with whom ye have treaty of Mutual alliance, compensation should
    be paid to his family, and a believing slave be freed. For those who find this
    beyond their means, (is prescribed) a fast for two months running: by way of
    repentance to Allah. for Allah hath all knowledge and all wisdom.

    93. If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein
    (For ever): And the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful
    penalty is prepared for him.

    94. O ye who believe! When ye go abroad in the cause of Allah, investigate
    carefully, and say not to any one who offers you a salutation:
    "Thou art none of a believer!" Coveting the perishable goods of this life: with
    Allah are profits and spoils abundant. Even thus were ye yourselves before,
    till Allah conferred on you His favours: Therefore carefully investigate. For
    Allah is well aware of all that ye do.

    95. Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt,
    and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their
    persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with
    their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith)
    Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished
    above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-

    96. Ranks specially bestowed by Him, and Forgiveness and Mercy. For Allah is
    Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    97. When angels take the souls of those who die in sin against their souls, they say:
    "In what (plight) Were ye?" They reply: "Weak and oppressed Were we in the earth.
    " They say: "Was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to move
    yourselves away (From evil)?" Such men will find their abode in Hell,- What an evil refuge! -

    98. Except those who are (really) weak and oppressed - men, women, and children -
    who have no means in their power, nor (a guide-post) to their way.

    99. For these, there is hope that Allah will forgive: For Allah doth blot out (sins)
    and forgive again and again.

    100. He who forsakes his home in the cause of Allah, finds in the earth Many a
    refuge, wide and spacious: Should he die as a refugee from home for Allah and
    His Messenger, His reward becomes due and sure with Allah. And Allah is
    Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    101. When ye travel through the earth, there is no blame on you if ye shorten your
    prayers, for fear the Unbelievers May attack you: For the Unbelievers are unto you open enemies.

    102. When thou (O Messenger. art with them, and standest to lead them in prayer,
    Let one party of them stand up (in prayer) with thee, Taking their arms with them:
    When they finish their prostrations, let them Take their position in the rear.
    And let the other party come up which hath not yet prayed - and let them pray
    with thee, Taking all precaution, and bearing arms: the Unbelievers wish, if ye
    were negligent of your arms and your baggage, to assault you in a single rush.
    But there is no blame on you if ye put away your arms because of the
    inconvenience of rain or because ye are ill; but take (every) precaution for yourselves.
    For the Unbelievers Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment.

    103. When ye pass (Congregational) prayers, celebrate Allah.s praises, standing,
    sitting down, or lying down on your sides; but when ye are free from danger,
    set up Regular Prayers: For such prayers are enjoined on believers at stated times.

    104. And slacken not in following up the enemy: If ye are suffering hardships,
    they are suffering similar hardships; but ye have Hope from Allah, while they
    have none. And Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.

    105. We have sent down to thee the Book in truth, that thou mightest judge
    between men, as guided by Allah. so be not (used) as an advocate by those
    who betray their trust;

    106. But seek the forgiveness of Allah. for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    107. Contend not on behalf of such as betray their own souls; for Allah loveth
    not one given to perfidy and crime:

    108. They may hide (Their crimes) from men, but they cannot hide (Them) from
    Allah, seeing that He is in their midst when they plot by night, in words that
    He cannot approve: And Allah Doth compass round all that they do.

    109. Ah! These are the sort of men on whose behalf ye may contend in this world;
    but who will contend with Allah on their behalf on the Day of Judgment,
    or who will carry their affairs through?

    110. If any one does evil or wrongs his own soul but afterwards seeks Allah.s
    forgiveness, he will find Allah Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    111. And if any one earns sin. he earns it against His own soul: for Allah is
    full of knowledge and wisdom.

    112. But if any one earns a fault or a sin and throws it on to one that is innocent,
    He carries (on himself) (Both) a falsehood and a flagrant sin.

    113. But for the Grace of Allah to thee and his Mercy, a party of them would
    certainly have plotted to lead thee astray. But (in fact) they will only Lead their
    own souls astray, and to thee they can do no harm in the least. For Allah hath
    sent down to thee the Book and wisdom and taught thee what thou Knewest not
    (before): And great is the Grace of Allah unto thee.

    114. In most of their secret talks there is no good: But if one exhorts to a
    deed of charity or justice or conciliation between men, (Secrecy is permissible):
    To him who does this, seeking the good pleasure of Allah, We shall soon give a
    reward of the highest (value).

    115. If anyone contends with the Messenger even after guidance has been plainly
    conveyed to him, and follows a path other than that becoming to men of Faith,
    We shall leave him in the path he has chosen, and land him in Hell,- what an evil refuge!

    116. Allah forgiveth not (The sin of) joining other gods with Him; but He
    forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this: one who joins other gods
    with Allah, Hath strayed far, far away (from the right).

    117. (The Pagans), leaving Him, call but upon female deities: They call but upon
    satan the per

    As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish
    them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly);

    117. (The Pagans), leaving Him, call but upon female deities: They call but upon
    satan the per.

    Quran 98:1-8
    The unbelievers among the People of the Book (Jews) and the pagans (Hindus) shall burn for ever in the fire of Hell. They are the vilest of all creatures.

    Quran 9:73
    Prophet, make war on the unbelievers (Hindus) and the hypocrites (Jews) and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their Home: an evil fate.

    'The Pagans' here are a reference to whom? Hindus?
    Please englighten me.

    It might come as a stunning revelation to many that the word ‘ALLAH’ itself is Sanskrit. In Sanskrit: Allah, Akka and Amba are synonyms. They signify a goddess or mother. The term ‘ALLAH’ forms part of Sanskrit chants invoking goddess Durga, also known as Bhavani, Chandi and Mahishasurmardini. The Islamic word for God is., therefore, not an innovation but the ancient Sanskrit appellation retained and continued by Islam. Allah means mother or goddess and mother goddess.

    Surah 4

    ary! Recount My favour to thee and to thy mother.
    Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit,
    so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and
    in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom,
    the Law and the Gospel and behold! thou makest out of clay,
    as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and thou
    breathest into it and it becometh a bird by My leave,
    and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave.
    And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave.
    And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from
    (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the clear Signs,
    and the unbelievers among them said: 'This is nothing but evident magic.'
    111. "And behold! I inspired the disciples to have
    faith in Me and Mine Messenger. they said, 'We have faith,
    and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims'".


    112. Behold! the disciples, said: "O Jesus the son of Mary!
    can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with viands) from heaven?"
    Said Jesus: "Fear Allah, if ye have faith."

    113. They said: "We only wish to eat thereof and satisfy
    our hearts, and to know that thou hast indeed told us the truth;
    and that we ourselves may be witnesses to the miracle."

    114. Said Jesus the son of Mary: "O Allah our Lord! Send us
    from heaven a table set (with viands), that there may be for us -
    for the first and the last of us - a solemn festival and a sign
    from thee; and provide for our sustenance, for thou art the best
    Sustainer (of our needs)."

    115. Allah said: "I will send it down unto you: But if any of you
    after that resisteth faith, I will punish him with a penalty such as
    I have not inflicted on any one among all the peoples."

    116. And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary!
    Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods
    in derogation of Allah.?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could
    I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing,
    thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest
    what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine.
    For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.

    117. "Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst
    command me to say, to wit, 'worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord';
    and I was a witness
    over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when
    Thou didst take me up Thou wast the Watcher over them,
    and Thou art a witness to all things.

    118. "If Thou dost punish them, they are Thy servant:
    If Thou dost forgive them, Thou art the Exalted in power, the Wise."

    119. Allah will say: "This is a day on which the truthful
    will profit from their truth: theirs are gardens, with rivers
    flowing beneath,- their eternal Home: Allah well-pleased with them,
    and they with Allah. That is the great salvation,
    (the fulfilment of all desires).

    120. To Allah doth belong the dominion of the heavens
    and the earth, and all that is therein, and it is He Who
    hath power over all things.


    Surah 5. The Table, The Table Spread

    1. O ye who believe! fulfil (all) obligations.

    1. Lawful unto you (for food) are all four-footed animals,
    with the exceptions named: But animals of the chase are
    forbidden while ye are in the sacred precincts or in pilgrim garb:
    for Allah doth command according to His will and plan.

    3. O ye who believe! Violate not the sanctity of the symbols of Allah,
    nor of the sacred month, nor of the animals brought for sacrifice,
    nor the garlands that mark out such animals, nor the people
    resorting to the sacred house, seeking of the bounty and good
    pleasure of their Lord. But when ye are clear of the sacred
    precincts and of pilgrim garb, ye may hunt and let not the
    hatred of some people in (once) shutting you out of the
    Sacred Mosque lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part).
    Help ye one another in righteousness and piety,
    but help ye not one another in sin and rancour: fear Allah.
    for Allah is strict in punishment.

    4. Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat,
    blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been
    invoked the name of other than Allah. that which hath
    been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall,
    or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly)
    eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form);
    that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden)
    also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows:
    that is impiety. This day have those who reject faith
    given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me.
    This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed
    My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.
    But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression,
    Allah is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    5. They ask thee what is lawful to them (as food). Say:
    lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what ye
    have taught your trained hunting animals (to catch) in the
    manner directed to you by Allah. eat what they catch for you,
    but pronounce the name of Allah over it: and fear Allah.
    for Allah is swift in taking account.

    6. This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you.
    The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and
    yours is lawful unto them. (Lawful unto you in marriage) are
    (not only) chaste women who are believers, but chaste
    women among the People of the Book, revealed before your time,-
    when ye give them their due dowers, and desire chastity,
    not lewdness, nor secret intrigues if any one rejects faith,
    fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the
    ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).

    7. O ye who believe! when ye prepare for prayer, wash your faces,
    and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; Rub your heads
    (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a
    state of ceremonial impurity, bathe your whole body. But if ye are ill,
    or on a journey, or one of you cometh from offices of nature,
    or ye have been in contact with women, and ye find no water,
    then take for yourselves clean sand or earth, and rub therewith
    your faces and hands, Allah doth not wish to place you in a difficulty,
    but to make you clean, and to complete his favour to you,
    that ye may be grateful.

    8. And call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you,
    and His covenant, which He ratified with you, when ye said:
    "We hear and we obey": And fear Allah, for Allah knoweth
    well the secrets of your hearts.

    9. O ye who believe! stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses
    to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make
    you swerve to wrong and depart from justice.
    Be just: that is next to piety: and fear Allah.
    For Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.

    10. To those who believe and do deeds of righteousness
    hath Allah promised forgiveness and a great reward.

    11. Those who reject faith and deny our signs
    will be companions of Hell-fire.

    12. O ye who believe! Call in remembrance the favour
    of Allah unto you when certain men formed the design to
    stretch out their hands against you, but ((Allah)) held back
    their hands from you: so fear Allah. And on Allah let believers put (all) their trust.

    13. Allah did aforetime take a covenant from the Children of Israel,
    and we appointed twelve captains among them.
    And Allah said: "I am with you: if ye (but) establish
    regular prayers, practise regular charity, believe in
    my apostles, honour and assist them, and loan to Allah a
    beautiful loan, verily I will wipe out from you your evils,
    and admit you to gardens with rivers flowing beneath;
    but if any of you, after this, resisteth faith, he hath truly
    wandered from the path or rectitude."

    14. But because of their breach of their covenant,
    We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard;
    they change the words from their (right) places and
    forget a good part of the message that was sent them,
    nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few -
    ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them,
    and overlook (their misdeeds): for Allah loveth those who are kind.

    15. From those, too, who call themselves Christians,
    We did take a covenant, but they forgot a good part of
    the message that was sent them: so we estranged them,
    with enmity and hatred between the one and the other,
    to the day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it is they have done.

    16. O people of the Book! There hath come to you our Messenger,
    revealing to you much that ye used to hide in the Book,
    and passing over much (that is now unnecessary).
    There hath come to you from Allah a (new) light and a
    perspicuous Book,-

    17. Wherewith Allah guideth all who seek His good pleasure
    to ways of peace and safety, and leadeth them out of
    darkness, by His will, unto the light,- guideth them to a
    path that is straight.

    18. In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is
    Christ the son of Mary. Say: "Who then hath the least power
    against Allah, if His will were to destroy Christ the son of Mary,
    his mother, and all every - one that is on the earth? For to
    Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth,
    and all that is between. He createth what He pleaseth.
    For Allah hath power over all things."

    19. (Both) the Jews and the Christians say:
    "We are sons of Allah, and his beloved." Say:
    "Why then doth He punish you for your sins?
    Nay, ye are but men,- of the men he hath created:
    He forgiveth whom He pleaseth, and He punisheth whom
    He pleaseth: and to Allah belongeth the dominion
    of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between:
    and unto Him is the final goal (of all)"

    20. O People of the Book! Now hath come unto you,
    making (things) clear unto you, Our Messenger, after the break in
    (the series of) our apostles, lest ye should say:
    "There came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner
    (from evil)": But now hath come unto you a bringer
    of glad tidings and a warner (from evil). And Allah hath power over all things.

    21. Remember Moses said to his people: "O my people!
    Call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you, when
    He produced prophets among you, made you kings,
    and gave you what He had not given to any other among the peoples.

    22. "O my people! Enter the holy land which Allah hath
    assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously,
    for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin."

    23. They said: "O Moses! In this land are a people of exceeding strength:
    Never shall we enter it until they leave it: if (once) they leave,
    then shall we enter."

    24. (But) among (their) Allah.fearing men were two on whom
    Allah had bestowed His grace: They said: "Assault them at the
    (proper) Gate: when once ye are in, victory will be yours;
    But on Allah put your trust if ye have faith."

    25. They said: "O Moses! while they remain there, never shall we
    be able to enter, to the end of time. Go thou, and thy Lord,
    and fight ye two, while we sit here (and watch)."

    26. He said: "O my Lord! I have power only over myself and
    my brother: so separate us from this rebellious people!"

    27. Allah said: "Therefore will the land be out of their reach for
    forty years: In distraction will they wander through the land:
    But sorrow thou not over these rebellious people.

    28. Recite to them the truth of the story of the two sons of Adam.
    Behold! they each presented a sacrifice (to Allah.:
    It was accepted from one, but not from the other.
    Said the latter: "Be sure I will slay thee." "Surely,"
    said the former, "(Allah) doth accept of the sacrifice of those who are righteous.

    29. "If thou dost stretch thy hand against me, to slay me,
    it is not for me to stretch my hand against thee to slay thee:
    for I do fear Allah, the cherisher of the worlds.

    30. "For me, I intend to let thee draw on thyself my sin
    as well as thine, for thou wilt be among the companions
    of the fire, and that is the reward of those who do wrong."

    31. The (selfish) soul of the other led him to the murder
    of his brother: he murdered him, and became (himself) one of the lost ones.

    32. Then Allah sent a raven, who scratched the ground,
    to show him how to hide the shame of his brother.
    "Woe is me!" said he; "Was I not even able to be as this raven,
    and to hide the shame of my brother?" then he became full of regrets-

    33. On that account: We ordained for the Children of
    Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder
    or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew
    the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if
    he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came
    to them Our apostles with clear signs, yet, even after that,
    many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

    34. The punishment of those who wage war against Allah
    and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for
    mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion,
    or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides,
    or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world,
    and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

    35. Except for those who repent before they fall into your power:
    in that case, know that Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    36. O ye who believe! Do your duty to Allah, seek the means
    of approach unto Him, and strive with might and main
    in his cause: that ye may prosper.

    37. As to those who reject Faith,- if they had everything on earth,
    and twice repeated, to give as ransom for the penalty of
    the Day of Judgment, it would never be accepted of them,
    theirs would be a grievous penalty.

    37. Their wish will be to get out of the Fire, but never will they
    get out therefrom: their penalty will be one that endures.

    38. As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her hands:
    a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime:
    and Allah is Exalted in power.

    39. But if the thief repents after his crime, and amends
    his conduct, Allah turneth to him in forgiveness; for
    Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    40. Knowest thou not that to Allah (alone) belongeth the
    dominion of the heavens and the earth? He punisheth
    whom He pleaseth, and He forgiveth whom He pleaseth:
    and Allah hath power over all things.

    41. O Messenger. let not those grieve thee, who race each
    other into unbelief: (whether it be) among those who say
    "We believe" with their lips but whose hearts have no faith;
    or it be among the Jews,- men who will listen to any lie,-
    will listen even to others who have never so much as come to thee.
    They change the words from their (right) times and places: they say,
    "If ye are given this, take it, but if not, beware!"
    If any one's trial is intended by Allah, thou hast no authority
    in the least for him against Allah. For such - it is not Allah.s
    will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace in this
    world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment.

    42. (They are fond of) listening to falsehood,
    of devouring anything forbidden. If they do come to thee,
    either judge between them, or decline to interfere.
    If thou decline, they cannot hurt thee in the least. If thou
    judge, judge in equity between them. For Allah loveth those who judge in equity.

    43. But why do they come to thee for decision, when they
    have (their own) law before them?- therein is the (plain)
    command of Allah. yet even after that, they would turn away.
    For they are not (really) People of Faith.

    44. It was We who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was
    guidance and light. By its standard have been judged the Jews,
    by the prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to Allah.s will,
    by the rabbis and the doctors of law: for to them was
    entrusted the protection of Allah.s book, and they were
    witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear me,
    and sell not my signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to
    judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed,
    they are (no better than) Unbelievers.

    45. We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye,
    nose or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal
    for equal." But if any one remits the retaliation by way of charity,
    it is an act of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by
    (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (No better than) wrong-doers.

    46. And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary,
    confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him
    the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation
    of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and
    an admonition to those who fear Allah.

    47. Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath
    revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of)
    what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.

    48. To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the
    scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety:
    so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed,
    and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the
    Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have
    we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed,
    He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is)
    to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a
    race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah. it is
    He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute;

    49. And this (He commands): Judge thou between them
    by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires,
    but beware of them lest they beguile thee from any of that
    (teaching) which Allah hath sent down to thee.
    And if they turn away, be assured that for some of their
    crime it is Allah.s purpose to punish them. And truly most
    men are rebellious.

    50. Do they then seek after a judgment of (the days of) ignorance?
    But who, for a people whose faith is assured, can give
    better judgment than Allah.

    51. O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for
    your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors
    to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship)
    is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

    52. Those in whose hearts is a disease - thou seest how eagerly
    they run about amongst them, saying: "We do fear lest a change
    of fortune bring us disaster." Ah! perhaps Allah will give (thee)
    victory, or a decision according to His will. Then will they repent
    of the thoughts which they secretly harboured in their hearts.

    53. And those who believe will say: "Are these the men
    who swore their strongest oaths by Allah, that they were with you?"
    All that they do will be in vain, and they will fall into (nothing but) ruin.

    54. O ye who believe! if any from among you turn back from his Faith,
    soon will Allah produce a people whom He will love
    as they will love Him,- lowly with the believers, mighty
    against the rejecters, fighting in the way of Allah, and
    never afraid of the reproaches of such as find fault.
    That is the grace of Allah, which He will bestow on whom He pleaseth.
    And Allah encompasseth all, and He knoweth all things.

    55. Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger,
    and the (fellowship of) believers,- those who establish
    regular prayers and regular charity, and they bow down humbly (in worship).

    56. As to those who turn (for friendship) to Allah,
    His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,-
    it is the fellowship of Allah that must certainly triumph.

    57. O ye who believe! take not for friends and protectors
    those who take your religion for a mockery or sport,-
    whether among those who received the Scripture before you,
    r among those who reject Faith; but fear ye Allah, if ye have faith (indeed).

    58. When ye proclaim your call to prayer they take it (but) as
    mockery and sport; that is because they are a people without understanding.

    59. Say: "O people of the Book! Do ye disapprove of us
    for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and the
    revelation that hath come to us and that which came before
    (us), and (perhaps) that most of you are rebellious and disobedient?"

    60. Say: "Shall I point out to you something much worse than this,
    (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah.
    hose who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath,
    those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine,
    those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse
    in rank, and far more astray from the even path!"

    61. When they come to thee, they say: "We believe":
    but in fact they enter with a mind against Faith, and they
    go out with the same but Allah knoweth fully all that they hide.

    62. Many of them dost thou see, racing each other in sin and rancour,
    and their eating of things forbidden. Evil indeed are the things that they do.

    63. Why do not the rabbis and the doctors of Law forbid them
    from their (habit of) uttering sinful words and eating things
    rbidden? Evil indeed are their works.

    64. The Jews say: "(Allah)'s hand is tied up."
    e their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy)
    they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched:
    He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth.
    But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth
    in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy.
    Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the
    Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war,
    Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth.
    And Allah loveth not those who do mischief.

    65. If only the People of the Book had believed and been righteous,
    We should indeed have blotted out their iniquities and admitted them
    to gardens of bliss.

    66. If only they had stood fast by the Law, the Gospel,
    and all the revelation that was sent to them from their Lord,
    they would have enjoyed happiness from every side.
    There is from among them a party on the right course:
    but many of them follow a course that is evil.

    67. O Messenger. proclaim the (message) which hath
    been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou didst not,
    thou wouldst not have fulfilled and proclaimed His mission.
    And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief).
    For Allah guideth not those who reject Faith.

    68. Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand
    upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the
    revelation that has come to you from your Lord." It is the
    revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth
    in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy.
    But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith.

    69. Those who believe (in the Qur'an), those
    who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians,-
    any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,-
    on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

    70. We took the covenant of the Children of Israel and sent them
    apostles, every time, there came to them an apostle with
    what they themselves desired not - some (of these) they
    called impostors, and some they (go so far as to) slay.

    71. They thought there would be no trial (or punishment);
    so they became blind and deaf; yet Allah (in mercy) turned
    to them; yet again many of them became blind and deaf.
    But Allah sees well all that they do.

    72. They do blaspheme who say: "(Allah) is Christ the son of Mary."
    But said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship Allah,
    my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with Allah,-
    Allah will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode.
    There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help.

    73. They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity:
    for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from
    their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will
    befall the blasphemers among them.

    74. Why turn they not to Allah, and seek His forgiveness?
    For Allah is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful.

    75. Christ the son of Mary was no more than an apostle;
    many were the apostles that passed away before him.
    His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food.
    See how Allah doth make His signs clear to them; yet see in
    what ways they are deluded away from the truth!

    76. Say: "Will ye worship, besides Allah, something which hath
    no power either to harm or benefit you? But Allah,- He it is that heareth and knoweth all things."

    77. Say: "O people of the Book! exceed not in your religion the
    bounds (of what is proper), trespassing beyond the truth,
    nor follow the vain desires of people who went wrong in times gone by,-
    who misled many, and strayed (themselves) from the even way.

    78. Curses were pronounced on those among the
    Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of
    David and of Jesus the son of Mary: because they
    disobeyed and persisted in excesses.

    79. Nor did they (usually) forbid one another the iniquities
    which they committed: evil indeed were the deeds which they did.

    80. Thou seest many of them turning in friendship to the Unbelievers.
    Evil indeed are (the works) which their souls have sent
    forward before them (with the result), that Allah.s wrath is on them,
    and in torment will they abide.

    81. If only they had believed in Allah, in the Messenger,
    and in what hath been revealed to him, never would they
    have taken them for friends and protectors, but most of
    them are rebellious wrong-doers.

    82. Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou
    find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to
    the believers wilt thou find those who say, "We are Christians":
    because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men
    who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.

    83. And when they listen to the revelation received by the
    Messenger, thou wilt see their eyes overflowing with tears,
    for they recognise the truth: they pray: "Our Lord! we believe;
    write us down among the witnesses.

    84. "What cause can we have not to believe in Allah and the
    truth which has come to us, seeing that we long for our Lord to
    admit us to the company of the righteous?"

    85. And for this their prayer hath Allah rewarded them with
    gardens, with rivers flowing underneath,- their eternal home.
    Such is the recompense of those who do good.

    86. But those who reject Faith and belie our Signs,-
    they shall be companions of Hell-fire.

    87. O ye who believe! make not unlawful the good things
    which Allah hath made lawful for you, but commit no excess:
    for Allah loveth not those given to excess.

    88. Eat of the things which Allah hath provided for you,
    lawful and good; but fear Allah, in Whom ye believe.

    89. Allah will not call you to account for what is futile in your oaths,
    but He will call you to account for your deliberate oaths:
    for expiation, feed ten indigent persons, on a scale of the
    average for the food of your families; or clothe them;
    or give a slave his freedom. If that is beyond your means,
    fast for three days. That is the expiation for the oaths ye
    have sworn. But keep to your oaths. Thus doth Allah make
    clear to you His signs, that ye may be grateful.

    90. O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of)
    stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,-
    of Satan's handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper.

    91. Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you,
    with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the
    remembrance of Allah, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?

    92. Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and beware (of evil):
    if ye do turn back, know ye that it is Our Messenger.s duty to
    proclaim (the message) in the clearest manner.

    93. On those who believe and do deeds of righteousness there
    is no blame for what they ate (in the past), when they guard
    themselves from evil, and believe, and do deeds of righteousness,-
    (or) again, guard themselves from evil and believe,-
    (or) again, guard themselves from evil and do good.
    For Allah loveth those who do good.

    94. O ye who believe! Allah doth but make a trial of you in
    a little matter of game well within reach of your hands and your
    lances, that He may test who feareth him unseen: any who
    transgress thereafter, will have a grievous penalty.

    95. O ye who believe! Kill not game while in the sacred
    precincts or in pilgrim garb. If any of you doth so intentionally,
    the compensation is an offering, brought to the Ka'ba, of a
    domestic animal equivalent to the one he killed, as adjudged by
    two just men among you; or by way of atonement, the feeding
    of the indigent; or its equivalent in fasts: that he may taste
    of the penalty of his deed. Allah forgives what is past: for
    repetition Allah will exact from him the penalty. For Allah is Exalted,
    and Lord of Retribution.

    96. Lawful to you is the pursuit of water-game and its use for food,-
    for the benefit of yourselves and those who travel; but forbidden
    is the pursuit of land-game;- as long as ye are in the sacred
    precincts or in pilgrim garb. And fear Allah,
    to Whom ye shall be gathered back.

    97. Allah made the Ka'ba, the Sacred House, an asylum of security
    for men, as also the Sacred Months, the animals for offerings,
    and the garlands that mark them: That ye may know that Allah
    hath knowledge of what is in the heavens and on earth and that
    Allah is well acquainted with all things.

    98. Know ye that Allah is strict in punishment and that Allah is
    Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    99. The Messenger.s duty is but to proclaim (the message).
    But Allah knoweth all that ye reveal and ye conceal.

    100. Say: "Not equal are things that are bad and things
    that are good, even though the abundance of the bad may
    dazzle thee; so fear Allah, O ye that understand; that (so) ye may prosper."

    101. O ye who believe! Ask not questions about things which,
    if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. But if ye ask
    about things when the Qur'an is being revealed, they will be
    made plain to you, Allah will forgive those: for Allah is Oft-
    forgiving, Most Forbearing.

    102. Some people before you did ask such questions,
    and on that account lost their faith.

    103. It was not Allah who instituted (superstitions like those of)
    a slit-ear she- camel, or a she-camel let loose for free pasture,
    or idol sacrifices for twin-births in animals, or stallion-camels
    freed from work: It is blasphemers who invent a lie against
    Allah. but most of them lack wisdom.

    104. When it is said to them: "Come to what Allah hath revealed;
    come to the Messenger.: They say: "Enough for us are the
    ways we found our fathers following." what! even though their
    fathers were void of knowledge and guidance?

    105. O ye who believe! Guard your own souls:
    If ye follow (right) guidance, no hurt can come to you
    from those who stray. the goal of you all is to Allah.
    it is He that will show you the truth of all that ye do.

    106. O ye who believe! When death approaches any of you,
    (take) witnesses among yourselves when making bequests,-
    two just men of your own (brotherhood) or others from
    outside if ye are journeying through the earth,
    and the chance of death befalls you (thus).
    If ye doubt (their truth), detain them both after prayer,
    and let them both swear by Allah. "We wish not in this for
    any worldly gain, even though the (beneficiary) be our
    near relation: we shall hide not the evidence before Allah.
    if we do, then behold! the sin be upon us!"

    107. But if it gets known that these two were guilty of the sin
    (of perjury), let two others stand forth in their places,-
    nearest in kin from among those who claim a lawful right:
    let them swear by Allah. "We affirm that our witness is truer
    than that of those two, and that we have not trespassed
    (beyond the truth): if we did, behold! the wrong be upon us!"

    108. That is most suitable: that they may give the evidence
    in its true nature and shape, or else they would fear that other
    oaths would be taken after their oaths. But fear Allah, and listen
    (to His counsel): for Allah guideth not a rebellious people:

    109. One day will Allah gather the apostles together, and ask:
    "What was the response ye received (from men to your teaching)?"
    They will say: "We have no knowledge: it is Thou Who knowest
    in full all that is hidden."

    110. Then will Allah say: "O Jesus the son of Mery

    struction, and cause confusion in their religion.
    If Allah had willed, they would not have done so:
    But leave alone them and their inventions.
    138. And they say that such and such cattle and crops are taboo,
    and none should eat of them except those whom -
    so they say - We wish; further, there are cattle forbidden to
    yoke or burden, and cattle on which, (at slaughter),
    the name of Allah is not pronounced; -
    inventions against Allah.s name:
    soon will He requite them for their inventions.

    139. They say: "What is in the wombs of such and such
    cattle is specially reserved (for food) for our men,
    and forbidden to our women; but if it is still-born,
    then all have share therein. For their (false) attribution
    (of superstitions to Allah., He will soon punish them:
    for He is full of wisdom and knowledge.

    140. Lost are those who slay their children, from folly,
    without knowledge, and forbid food which Allah hath
    provided for them, inventing (lies) against Allah.
    They have indeed gone astray and heeded no guidance.

    141. It is He Who produceth gardens, with trellises and without,
    and dates, and tilth with produce of all kinds, and olives
    and pomegranates, similar (in kind) and different (in variety):
    eat of their fruit in their season, but render the
    dues that are proper on the day that the harvest is gathered.
    But waste not by excess: for Allah loveth not the wasters.

    142. Of the cattle are some for burden and some for meat:
    eat what Allah hath provided for you, and follow not the
    footsteps of Satan: for he is to you and avowed enemy.

    143. (Take) eight (head of cattle) in (four) pairs: of sheep a pair,
    and of goats a pair; say, hath He forbidden the two males,
    or the two females, or (the young) which the wombs of the
    two females enclose? Tell me with knowledge if ye are truthful:

    144. Of camels a pair, and oxen a pair; say, hath He forbidden
    the two males, or the two females, or (the young) which the
    wombs of the two females enclose? - Were ye present when
    Allah ordered you such a thing? But who doth more wrong
    than one who invents a lie against Allah, to lead astray
    men without knowledge? For Allah guideth not people who do wrong.

    145. Say: "I find not in the message received by me by
    inspiration any (meat) forbidden to be eaten by one who
    wishes to eat it, unless it be dead meat, or blood poured forth,
    or the flesh of swine,- for it is an abomination - or,
    what is impious, (meat) on which a name has been invoked,
    other than Allah.s". But (even so), if a person is
    forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience,
    nor transgressing due limits,- thy Lord is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    146. For those who followed the Jewish Law, We forbade every
    (animal) with undivided hoof, and We forbade them that fat
    of the ox and the sheep, except what adheres to their backs
    or their entrails, or is mixed up with a bone:
    this in recompense for their wilful disobedience:
    for We are true (in Our ordinances).

    147. If they accuse thee of falsehood, say:
    "Your Lord is full of mercy all- embracing; but from people in
    guilt never will His wrath be turned back.

    148. Those who give partners (to Allah. will say:
    "If Allah had wished, we should not have given partners to
    Him nor would our fathers; nor should we have had any taboos.
    " So did their ancestors argue falsely, until they
    tasted of Our wrath. Say: "Have ye any (certain)
    nowledge? If so, produce it before us. Ye follow
    nothing but conjecture: ye do nothing but lie."

    149. Say: "With Allah is the argument that reaches home:
    if it had been His will, He could indeed have guided you all."

    150. Say: "Bring forward your witnesses to prove that Allah
    did forbid so and so." If they bring such witnesses, be not
    thou amongst them: Nor follow thou the vain desires of such
    as treat our signs as falsehoods, and such as believe not in
    the Hereafter: for they hold others as equal with their Guardian-Lord.

    151. Say: "Come, I will rehearse what Allah hath (really)
    prohibited you from": Join not anything as equal with Him;
    be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of want;-
    We provide sustenance for you and for them;-
    come not nigh to shameful deeds. Whether open or secret;
    take not life, which Allah hath made sacred, except by way
    of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.

    152. And come not nigh to the orphan's property,
    except to improve it, until he attain the age of full strength;
    give measure and weight with (full) justice;-
    no burden do We place on any soul, but that which it can bear;-
    whenever ye speak, speak justly, even if a near relative is concerned;
    and fulfil the covenant of Allah. thus doth He command you,
    that ye may remember.

    153. Verily, this is My way, leading straight: follow it:
    follow not (other) paths: they will scatter you about from
    His (great) path: thus doth He command you. that ye may be righteous.

    154. Moreover, We gave Moses the Book, completing
    (Our favour) to those who would do right, and explaining
    all things in detail,- and a guide and a mercy, that they
    might believe in the meeting with their Lord.

    155. And this is a Book which We have revealed as a blessing:
    so follow it and be righteous, that ye may receive mercy:

    156. Lest ye should say: "The Book was sent down to two
    Peoples before us, and for our part, we remained unacquainted
    with all that they learned by assiduous study:"

    157. Or lest ye should say: "If the Book had only been
    sent down to us, we should have followed its guidance
    better than they." Now then hath come unto you a clear
    (sign) from your Lord,- and a guide and a mercy:
    then who could do more wrong than one who rejecteth
    Allah.s signs, and turneth away therefrom? In good time
    shall We requite those who turn away from Our signs,
    with a dreadful penalty, for their turning away.

    158. Are they waiting to see if the angels come to them,
    or thy Lord (Himself), or certain of the signs of thy Lord!
    the day that certain of the signs of thy Lord do come,
    no good will it do to a soul to believe in them then if it
    believed not before nor earned righteousness through
    its faith. Say: "Wait ye: we too are waiting."

    159. As for those who divide their religion and break
    up into sects, thou hast no part in them in the least:
    their affair is with Allah. He will in the end tell them
    the truth of all that they did.

    160. He that doeth good shall have ten times as much to
    his credit: He that doeth evil shall only be recompensed
    according to his evil: no wrong shall be done unto (any of) them.

    161. Say: "Verily, my Lord hath guided me to a
    way that is straight,- a religion of right,- the path
    (trod) by Abraham the true in Faith, and he (certainly)
    joined not gods with Allah."

    162. Say: "Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice,
    my life and my death, are (all) for Allah, the Cherisher of the Worlds:

    163. No partner hath He: this am I commanded,
    and I am the first of those who bow to His will.

    164. Say: "Shall I seek for (my) Cherisher other than
    Allah, when He is the Cherisher of all things (that exist)?
    Every soul draws the meed of its acts on none but itself:
    no bearer of burdens can bear of burdens can bear the
    burden of another. Your goal in the end is towards Allah.
    He will tell you the truth of the things wherein ye disputed."

    165. It is He Who hath made you (His) agents,
    inheritors of the earth: He hath raised you in ranks,
    some above others: that He may try you in the gifts
    He hath given you: for thy Lord is quick in punishment:
    yet He is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    Surah 6. Cattle, Livestock

    1. Praise be Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth,
    and made the darkness and the light. Yet those who reject Faith hold
    (others) as equal, with their Guardian-Lord.

    2. He it is created you from clay, and then decreed a stated term (for you).
    And there is in His presence another determined term;
    yet ye doubt within yourselves!

    3. And He is Allah in the heavens and on earth. He knoweth what ye hide,
    and what ye reveal, and He knoweth the (recompense)
    which ye earn (by your deeds).

    4. But never did a single one of the signs of their Lord reach them,
    but they turned away therefrom.

    5. And now they reject the truth when it reaches them:
    but soon shall they learn the reality of what they used to mock at.

    6. See they not how many of those before them We did destroy?-
    generations We had established on the earth, in strength such as
    We have not given to you - for whom We poured out rain from the
    skies in abundance, and gave (fertile) streams flowing beneath their
    (feet): yet for their sins We destroyed them, and raised in their wake
    fresh generations (to succeed them).

    7. If We had sent unto thee a written (message) on parchment,
    so that they could touch it with their hands, the Unbelievers would
    have been sure to say: "This is nothing but obvious magic!"

    8. They say: "Why is not an angel sent down to him?" If we did send
    down an angel, the matter would be settled at once, and no respite
    would be granted them.

    9. If We had made it an angel, We should have sent him as a man,
    and We should certainly have caused them confusion in a matter
    which they have already covered with confusion.

    10. Mocked were (many) apostles before thee; but their scoffers
    were hemmed in by the thing that they mocked.

    11. Say: "Travel through the earth and see what was the end of
    those who rejected Truth."

    12. Say: "To whom belongeth all that is in the heavens and on earth?" Say:
    "To Allah. He hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy.
    That He will gather you together for the Day of Judgment,
    there is no doubt whatever. It is they who have lost their own souls,
    that will not believe.

    13. To him belongeth all that dwelleth (or lurketh) in the night and the day.
    For he is the one who heareth and knoweth all things."

    14. Say: "Shall I take for my protector any other than Allah,
    the Maker of the heavens and the earth? And He it is that
    feedeth but is not fed." Say: "Nay! but I am commanded to be the first
    of those who bow to Allah (in Islam), and be not thou of the company
    of those who join gods with Allah."

    15. Say: "I would, if I disobeyed my Lord, indeed have fear of the
    penalty of a Mighty Day.

    16. "On that day, if the penalty is averted from any, it is due to Allah.s mercy;
    And that would be (Salvation), the obvious fulfilment of all desire.

    17. "If Allah touch thee with affliction, none can remove it but He;
    if He touch thee with happiness, He hath power over all things.

    18. "He is the irresistible, (watching) from above over His worshippers;
    and He is the Wise, acquainted with all things."

    19. Say: "What thing is most weighty in evidence?" Say:
    "(Allah) is witness between me and you; This Qur'an hath been
    revealed to me by inspiration, that I may warn you and all whom
    it reaches. Can ye possibly bear witness that besides Allah there is another Allah.
    " Say: "Nay! I cannot bear witness!" Say:
    "But in truth He is the one Allah, and I truly am innocent of
    (your blasphemy of) joining others with Him."

    20. Those to whom We have given the Book know this as they
    know their own sons. Those who have lost their own souls
    refuse therefore to believe.

    21. Who doth more wrong than he who inventeth a lie against
    Allah or rejecteth His sings? But verily the wrong-doers never shall prosper.

    22. One day shall We gather them all together: We shall say
    to those who ascribed partners (to Us): "Where are the partners
    whom ye (invented and) talked about?"

    23. There will then be (left) no subterfuge for them but to say:
    "By Allah our Lord, we were not those who joined gods with Allah."

    24. Behold! how they lie against their own souls! But the (lie)
    which they invented will leave them in the lurch.

    25. Of them there are some who (pretend to) listen to thee;
    but We have thrown veils on their hearts, So they understand
    it not, and deafness in their ears; if they saw every one of the
    signs, not they will believe in them; in so much that when they
    come to thee, they (but) dispute with thee; the Unbelievers say:
    "These are nothing but tales of the ancients."

    26. Others they keep away from it, and themselves they keep away;
    but they only destroy their own souls, and they perceive it not.

    27. If thou couldst but see when they are confronted with the Fire!
    They will say: "Would that we were but sent back!
    Then would we not reject the signs of our Lord, but would be
    amongst those who believe!"

    28. Yea, in their own (eyes) will become manifest what before they
    concealed. But if they were returned, they would certainly relapse
    to the things they were forbidden, for they are indeed liars.

    29. And they (sometimes) say: "There is nothing except our life
    on this earth, and never shall we be raised up again."

    30. If thou couldst but see when they are confronted with their Lord!
    He will say: "Is not this the truth?" They will say: "Yea, by our Lord!"
    He will say: "Taste ye then the penalty, because ye rejected Faith."

    31. Lost indeed are they who treat it as a falsehood that they
    must meet Allah,- until on a sudden the hour is on them, and they say:
    "Ah! woe unto us that we took no thought of it"; for they bear their
    burdens on their backs, and evil indeed are the burdens that they bear?

    32. What is the life of this world but play and amusement?
    But best is the home in the hereafter, for those who are righteous.
    Will ye not then understand?

    33. We know indeed the grief which their words do cause thee:
    It is not thee they reject: it is the signs of Allah, which the wicked contemn.

    34. Rejected were the apostles before thee: with patience and
    constancy they bore their rejection and their wrongs, until
    Our aid did reach them: there is none that can alter the words
    (and decrees) of Allah. Already hast thou received some account of those apostles.

    35. If their spurning is hard on thy mind, yet if thou wert able
    to seek a tunnel in the ground or a ladder to the skies and
    bring them a sign,- (what good?). If it were Allah.s will,
    He could gather them together unto true guidance: so be
    not thou amongst those who are swayed by ignorance (and impatience)!

    36. Those who listen (in truth), be sure, will accept: as to the dead,
    Allah will raise them up; then will they be turned unto Him.

    37. They say: "Why is not a sign sent down to him from his Lord?" Say:
    "(Allah) hath certainly power to send down a sign: but most of them
    understand not.

    38. There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth, nor a being that
    flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you. Nothing
    have we omitted from the Book, and they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end.

    39. Those who reject our sings are deaf and dumb,- in the midst of
    darkness profound: whom Allah willeth, He leaveth to wander:
    whom He willeth, He placeth on the way that is straight.

    40. Say: "Think ye to yourselves, if there come upon you the wrath
    of Allah, or the Hour (that ye dread), would ye then call upon other than Allah.-
    (reply) if ye are truthful!

    41. "Nay,- On Him would ye call, and if it be His will, He would remove
    (the distress) which occasioned your call upon Him, and ye would forget
    (the false gods) which ye join with Him!"

    42. Before thee We sent (apostles) to many nations, and
    We afflicted the nations with suffering and adversity, that they might learn humility.

    43. When the suffering reached them from us, why then did they
    not learn humility? On the contrary their hearts became hardened,
    and Satan made their (sinful) acts seem alluring to them.

    44. But when they forgot the warning they had received,
    We opened to them the gates of all (good) things, until, in the
    midst of their enjoyment of Our gifts, on a sudden, We called
    them to account, when lo! they were plunged in despair!

    45. Of the wrong-doers the last remnant was cut off. Praise be to Allah,
    the Cherisher of the worlds.

    46. Say: "Think ye, if Allah took away your hearing and your sight,
    and sealed up your hearts, who - a god other than Allah -
    could restore them to you?" See how We explain the signs
    by various (symbols); yet they turn aside.

    47. Say: "Think ye, if the punishment of Allah comes to you,
    whether suddenly or openly, will any be destroyed except those who do wrong?

    48. We send the apostles only to give good news and to warn:
    so those who believe and mend (their lives),- upon them shall
    be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

    49. But those who reject our signs,- them shall punishment touch,
    for that they ceased not from transgressing.

    50. Say: "I tell you not that with me are the treasures of Allah,
    nor do I know what is hidden, nor do I tell you I am an angel.
    I but follow what is revealed to me." Say: "can the blind be held
    equal to the seeing?" Will ye then consider not?

    51. Give this warning to those in whose (hearts) is the fear that
    they will be brought (to judgment) before their Lord: except for
    Him they will have no protector nor intercessor: that they may
    guard (against evil).

    52. Send not away those who call on their Lord morning and evening,
    seeking His face. In naught art thou accountable for them, and
    in naught are they accountable for thee, that thou shouldst turn
    them away, and thus be (one) of the unjust.

    53. Thus did We try some of them by comparison with others,
    that they should say: "Is it these then that Allah hath favoured
    from amongst us?" Doth not Allah know best those who are grateful?

    54. When those come to thee who believe in Our signs, Say:
    "Peace be on you: Your Lord hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of)
    mercy: verily, if any of you did evil in ignorance,
    and thereafter repented, and amend (his conduct),
    lo! He is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful.

    55. Thus do We explain the signs in detail: that the way of the
    sinners may be shown up.

    56. Say: "I am forbidden to worship those - others than Allah -
    whom ye call upon." Say: "I will not follow your wain desires:
    If I did, I would stray from the path, and be not of the company
    of those who receive guidance."

    57. Say: "For me, I (work) on a clear sign from my Lord, but ye
    reject Him. What ye would see hastened, is not in my power.
    The command rests with none but Allah. He declares the truth,
    and He is the best of judges."

    58. Say: "If what ye would see hastened were in my power,
    the matter would be settled at once between you and me.
    But Allah knoweth best those who do wrong."

    59. With Him are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that
    none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the
    earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge:
    there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth,
    nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed)
    in a record clear (to those who can read).

    60. It is He who doth take your souls by night, and hath
    knowledge of all that ye have done by day: by day doth
    He raise you up again; that a term appointed be fulfilled;
    In the end unto Him will be your return; then will He show
    you the truth of all that ye did.

    61. He is the irresistible, (watching) from above over
    His worshippers, and He sets guardians over you. At length,
    when death approaches one of you, Our angels take his soul,
    and they never fail in their duty.

    62. Then are men returned unto Allah, their protector,
    the (only) reality: Is not His the command? and He is the
    swiftest in taking account.

    63. Say: "Who is it that delivereth you from the dark
    recesses of land and sea, when ye call upon Him in humility
    and silent terror: 'If He only delivers us from these (dangers),
    (we vow) we shall truly show our gratitude'.?"

    64. Say "It is Allah that delivereth you from these and all (other)
    distresses: and yet ye worship false gods!"

    65. Say: "He hath power to send calamities on you, from
    above and below, or to cover you with confusion in party strife,
    giving you a taste of mutual vengeance - each from the other."
    See how We explain the signs by various (symbols); that they may understand.

    66. But thy people reject this, though it is the truth. Say:
    "Not mine is the responsibility for arranging your affairs;

    67. For every message is a limit of time, and soon shall ye know it."

    68. When thou seest men engaged in vain discourse about
    Our signs, turn away from them unless they turn to a different
    theme. If Satan ever makes thee forget, then after recollection,
    sit not thou in the company of those who do wrong.

    69. On their account no responsibility falls on the righteous,
    but (their duty) is to remind them, that they may (learn to) fear Allah.

    70. Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play
    and amusement, and are deceived by the life of this world.
    But proclaim (to them) this (truth): that every soul delivers
    itself to ruin by its own acts: it will find for itself no protector
    or intercessor except Allah. if it offered every ransom,
    (or reparation), none will be accepted: such is (the end of)
    those who deliver themselves to ruin by their own acts:
    they will have for drink (only) boiling water, and for punishment,
    one most grievous: for they persisted in rejecting Allah
