In the Name of Allah, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. O you who believe! Fulfill (your) obligations. Lawful
to you (for food) are all the beasts of cattle except that which
will be announced to you (herein), game (also) being unlawful
when you assume Ihram for Hajj or 'Umrah
(pilgrimage). Verily, Allah commands that which
2. O you 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 garlanded people or animals,
etc. [Marked by the garlands on their necks made from the
outer part of the treestems (of Makkah) for their security],
nor the people coming to the Sacred House (Makkah), seeking the
bounty and good pleasure of their Lord. But when you finish
the Ihram (of Hajj or 'Umrah), you
may hunt, and let not the hatred of some people in (once) stopping
you from AlMasjidalHaram (at Makkah)
lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part). Help
you one another in AlBirr and AtTaqwa (virtue,
righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and
transgression. And fear Allah. Verily, Allah
is Severe in punishment.
3. Forbidden to you (for food) are: Al-Maytatah
(the dead animals - cattle-beast not slaughtered), blood,
the flesh of swine, and the meat of that which has been slaughtered
as a sacrifice for others than Allah, or has been slaughtered
for idols, etc., or on which Allah's Name has not been mentioned
while slaughtering, and that which has been killed by strangling,
or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by the goring
of horns - and that which has been (partly) eaten by a wild animal
- unless you are able to slaughter it (before its death)
and that which is sacrificed (slaughtered) on AnNusub
(stone altars). (Forbidden) also is to use arrows
seeking luck or decision, (all) that is Fisqun (disobedience
of Allah and sin). This day, those who disbelieved
have given up all hope of your religion, so fear them not, but
fear Me. This day, I have perfected your religion for you,
completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam
as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe
hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned
meats), then surely, Allah is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
4. They ask you (O Muhammad ) what is lawful for them (as food
). Say: "Lawful unto you are AtTayyibat
[all kind of Halal (lawfulgood) foods which
Allah has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals,
milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.)]. And those
beasts and birds of prey which you have trained as hounds, training
and teaching them (to catch) in the manner as directed to you
by Allah; so eat of what they catch for you, but pronounce
the Name of Allah over it, and fear Allah. Verily,
Allah is Swift in reckoning."
5. Made lawful to you this day are AtTayyibat
[all kinds of Halal (lawful) foods, which Allah
has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, etc., milk
products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.). The food (slaughtered
cattle, eatable animals, etc.) of the people of the Scripture
(Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to
them. (Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the
believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture
(Jews and Christians) before your time, when you have given their
due Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife
at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e. taking
them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse,
nor taking them as girl-friends. And whosoever disbelieves
in the Oneness of Allah and in all the other Articles of
Faith [i.e. His (Allah's), Angels, His Holy Books,
His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection and AlQadar (Divine
Preordainments)], then fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter
he will be among the losers.
6. O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salat
(the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to
the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash)
your feet up to ankles. If you are in
a state of Janaba (i.e. had a sexual discharge),
purify yourself (bathe your whole body). But if you are ill
or on a journey or any of you comes from answering the call of
nature, or you have been in contact with women (i.e. sexual
intercourse) and you find no water, then perform Tayammum
with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands.
Allah does not want to place you in difficulty, but He wants
to purify you, and to complete His Favour on you that you may
7. And remember Allah's Favour upon you and
His Covenant with which He bound you when you said: "We hear
and we obey." And fear Allah. Verily, Allah
is AllKnower of the secrets of (your) breasts.
8. O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah
and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others
make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety,
and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is WellAcquainted
with what you do.
9. Allah has promised those who believe (in
the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism) and do
deeds of righteousness, that for them there is forgiveness and
a great reward (i.e. Paradise).
10. They who disbelieve and deny our Ayat
(proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)
are those who will be the dwellers of the Hellfire.
11. O you who believe! Remember the Favour of Allah
unto you when some people desired (made a plan) to stretch out
their hands against you, but (Allah) withheld their hands
from you. So fear Allah. And in Allah let
believers put their trust.
12. Indeed Allah took the covenant from the
Children of Israel (Jews), and We appointed twelve leaders among
them. And Allah said: "I am with you if you perform
As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and
give Zakat and believe in My Messengers; honour and
assist them, and lend to Allah a good loan. Verily,
I will remit your sins and admit you to Gardens under which rivers
flow (in Paradise). But if any of you after this, disbelieved,
he has indeed gone astray from the Straight Path."
13. So 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 have abandoned a good
part of the Message that was sent to them.
And you will not cease to discover deceit in them, except a few
of them. But forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds). Verily,
Allah loves AlMuhsinun (gooddoers
- see V.2:112).
14. And from those who call themselves Christians,
We took their covenant, but they have abandoned a good part of
the Message that was sent to them. So We planted
amongst them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection (when
they discarded Allah's Book, disobeyed Allah's Messengers
and His Orders and transgressed beyond bounds in Allah's
disobedience), and Allah will inform them of what they used
15. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)!
Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad ) explaining to you much of that
which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over (i.e. leaving
out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you
from Allah a light (Prophet Muhammad ) and a plain Book (this Qur'an).
16. Wherewith Allah guides all those who seek
His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of
darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to a Straight
Way (Islamic Monotheism).
17. Surely, in disbelief are they who say that Allah
is the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary). Say
(O Muhammad ):
"Who then has the least power against Allah, if He
were to destroy the Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), his mother,
and all those who are on the earth together?" And to Allah
belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that
is between them. He creates what He wills. And Allah
is Able to do all things.
18. And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We
are the children of Allah and His loved ones." Say:
"Why then does He punish you for your sins?" Nay, you
are but human beings, of those He has created, He forgives whom
He wills and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah
belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that
is between them, and to Him is the return (of all).
19. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)!
Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad ) making (things) clear unto you,
after a break in (the series of) Messengers, lest you say: "There
came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner."
But now has come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner. And
Allah is Able to do all things.
20. And (remember) when Musa (Moses) said to
his people: "O my people! Remember the Favour of Allah
to you, when He made Prophets among you, made you kings, and gave
you what He had not given to any other among the 'Alamin
(mankind and jinns, in the past)."
21. "O my people! Enter the holy land (Palestine)
which Allah has assigned to you, and turn not back (in flight)
for then you will be returned as losers."
22. They said: "O Musa (Moses)! In it (this
holy land) are a people of great strength, and we shall never
enter it, till they leave it; when they leave, then we will enter."
23. Two men of those who feared (Allah and)
on whom Allah had bestowed His Grace [they were Yusha' (Joshua)
and Kalab (Caleb)] said: "Assault them through the
gate, for when you are in, victory will be yours, and put your
trust in Allah if you are believers indeed."
24. They said: "O Musa (Moses)! We shall
never enter it as long as they are there. So go you and your
Lord and fight you two, we are sitting right here."
25. He [Musa (Moses)] said: "O my Lord!
I have power only over myself and my brother, so separate us from
the people who are the Fasiqun (rebellious
and disobedient to Allah)!"
26. (Allah) said: "Therefore it (this holy
land) is forbidden to them for forty years; in distraction they
will wander through the land. So be not sorrowful over the
people who are the Fasiqun (rebellious and
disobedient to Allah)."
27. And (O Muhammad )
recite to them (the Jews) the story of the two sons of Adam [Habil
(Abel) and Qabil (Cain)] in truth; when each offered a sacrifice
(to Allah), it was accepted from the one but not from the
other. The latter said to the former: "I will surely
kill you." The former said: "Verily,
Allah accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqun
(the pious - see V.2:2)."
28. "If you do stretch your hand against me to
kill me, I shall never stretch my hand against you to kill you,
for I fear Allah; the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind,
jinns, and all that exists)."
29. "Verily, I intend to let you draw my sin
on yourself as well as yours, then you will be one of the dwellers
of the Fire, and that is the recompense of the Zalimun
(polytheists and wrongdoers)."
30. So the Nafs (self) of the other (latter
one) encouraged him and made fairseeming to him the murder
of his brother; he murdered him and became one of the losers.
31. Then Allah sent a crow who scratched the
ground to show him to hide the dead body of his brother. He
(the murderer) said: "Woe to me! Am I not even able to be
as this crow and to hide the dead body of my brother?" Then
he became one of those who regretted.
32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of
Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder,
or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he
killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as
if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came
to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs,
even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits
(e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the
limits set by Allah by committing the major sins) in the
33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allah
and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they
shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be
cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That
is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs
in the Hereafter.
34. Except for those who (having fled away and then)
came back (as Muslims) with repentance before they fall into your
power; in that case, know that Allah is OftForgiving,
35. O you who believe! Do your duty to Allah
and fear Him. Seek the means of approach to Him, and strive
hard in His Cause as much as you can. So that you may be
36. Verily, those who disbelieve, if they had all
that is in the earth, and as much again therewith to ransom themselves
thereby from the torment on the Day of Resurrection, it would
never be accepted of them, and theirs would be a painful torment.
37. They will long to get out of the Fire, but never
will they get out therefrom, and theirs will be a lasting torment.
38. Cut off (from the wrist joint) the (right) hand
of the thief, male or female, as a recompense for that which they
committed, a punishment by way of example from Allah. And
Allah is AllPowerful, AllWise.
39. But whosoever repents after his crime and does
righteous good deeds (by obeying Allah), then verily, Allah
will pardon him (accept his repentance). Verily, Allah
is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
40. Know you not that to Allah (Alone) belongs
the dominion of the heavens and the earth! He punishes whom He
wills and He forgives whom He wills. And Allah is Able
to do all things.
41. O Messenger (Muhammad )! Let not those who hurry to fall
into disbelief grieve you, of such who say: "We believe"
with their mouths but their hearts have no faith. And of
the Jews are men who listen much and eagerly to lies - listen
to others who have not come to you. They change the words
from their places; they say, "If you are given this, take
it, but if you are not given this, then beware!" And whomsoever
Allah wants to put in AlFitnah [error, because
of his rejecting the Faith], you can do nothing for him against
Allah. Those are the ones whose hearts Allah
does not want to purify (from disbelief and hypocrisy); for them
there is a disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a great
42. (They like to) listen to falsehood, to devour
anything forbidden. So if they come to you (O Muhammad ), either judge between them, or
turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot
hurt you in the least. And if you judge, judge with justice
between them. Verily, Allah loves those who act justly.
43. But how do they come to you for decision while
they have the Taurat (Torah), in which is the (plain) Decision
of Allah; yet even after that, they turn away. For
they are not (really) believers.
44. Verily, We did send down the Taurat (Torah)
[to Musa (Moses)], therein was guidance and light, by which
the Prophets, who submitted themselves to Allah's Will,
judged the Jews. And the rabbis and the priests [too judged
the Jews by the Taurat (Torah) after those Prophets] for
to them was entrusted the protection of Allah's Book, and
they were witnesses thereto. Therefore fear not men but fear
Me (O Jews) and sell not My Verses for a miserable price. And
whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such
are the Kafirun (i.e. disbelievers - of
a lesser degree as they do not act on Allah's Laws).
45. And We ordained therein for them: "Life for
life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for
ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if
anyone remits the retaliation by way of charity, it shall be for
him an expiation. And whosoever does not judge by that which
Allah has revealed, such are the Zalimun
(polytheists and wrongdoers - of a lesser degree).
46. And in their footsteps, We sent 'Iesa (Jesus),
son of Maryam (Mary), confirming the Taurat
(Torah) that had come before him, and We gave him the Injeel (Gospel),
in which was guidance and light and confirmation of the Taurat
(Torah) that had come before it, a guidance and an admonition
for Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2).
47. Let the people of the Injeel (Gospel) judge by
what Allah has revealed therein. And whosoever does
not judge by what Allah has revealed (then) such (people)
are the Fasiqun (the rebellious i.e. disobedient
(of a lesser degree) to Allah.
48. And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad ) the Book (this Qur'an)
in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Mohayminan
(trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old Scriptures). So
judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and follow
not their vain desires, diverging away from the truth that has
come to you. To each among you, We have prescribed a law
and a clear way. If Allah willed, He would have made
you one nation, but that (He) may test you in what He has given
you; so strive as in a race in good deeds. The return of
you (all) is to Allah; then He will inform you about that
in which you used to differ.
49. . And so judge (you O Muhammad ) between them by what Allah
has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of
them lest they turn you (O Muhammad )
far away from some of that which Allah has sent down to
you. And if they turn away, then know that Allah's
Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly,
most of men are Fasiqun (rebellious and disobedient
50. Do they then seek the judgement of (the Days of)
Ignorance? And who is better in judgement
than Allah for a people who have firm Faith.
51. O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians
as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.),
they are but Auliya' to one another. And if
any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely
he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people
who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers
52. And you see those in whose hearts there is a disease
(of hypocrisy), they hurry to their friendship, saying: "We
fear lest some misfortune of a disaster may befall us." Perhaps
Allah may bring a victory or a decision according to His
Will. Then they will become regretful for what they have
been keeping as a secret in themselves.
53. And those who believe will say: "Are these
the men (hypocrites) who swore their strongest oaths by Allah
that they were with you (Muslims)?" All that they did has
been in vain (because of their hypocrisy), and they have become
54. O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns
back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a
people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards
the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the
Way of Allah, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That
is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And
Allah is AllSufficient for His creatures' needs, AllKnower.
55. Verily, your Wali (Protector or Helper)
is Allah, His Messenger, and the believers, - those who
perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat),
and give Zakat, and they bow down (submit themselves
with obedience to Allah in prayer).
56. And whosoever takes Allah, His Messenger,
and those who have believed, as Protectors, then the party of
Allah will be the victorious.
57. O you who believe! Take not for Auliya'
(protectors and helpers) those who take your religion for
a mockery and fun from among those who received the Scripture
(Jews and Christians) before you, nor from among the disbelievers;
and fear Allah if you indeed are true believers.
58. And when you proclaim the call for As-Salat
[call for the prayer (Adhan)], they take it (but)
as a mockery and fun; that is because they are a people who understand
59. Say: "O people of the Scripture (Jews and
Christians)! Do you criticize us for no other reason than that
we believe in Allah, and in (the revelation) which has been
sent down to us and in that which has been sent down before (us),
and that most of you are Fasiqun [rebellious
and disobedient (to Allah)]?"
60. Say (O Muhammad
to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something
worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those
(Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those
of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who
worshipped Taghut (false
deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in
the Hellfire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in
the life of this world)."
61. When they come to you, they say: "We believe."
But in fact they enter with (an intention of) disbelief and they
go out with the same. And Allah knows all what they were
62. And you see many of them (Jews) hurrying for sin
and transgression, and eating illegal things [as bribes and Riba
(usury), etc.]. Evil indeed is that which they have been doing.
63. Why do not the rabbis and the religious learned
men forbid them from uttering sinful words and from eating illegal
things. Evil indeed is that which they have been performing.
64. The Jews say: "Allah's Hand is tied
up (i.e. He does not give and spend of His Bounty)."
Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for what they uttered. Nay,
both His Hands are widely outstretched. He
spends (of His Bounty) as He wills. Verily, the Revelation
that has come to you from Allah increases in most of them
their obstinate rebellion and disbelief. We have put enmity
and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection. Every
time they kindled the fire of war, Allah extinguished it;
and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah
does not like the Mufsidun (mischiefmakers).
65. And if only the people of the Scripture (Jews
and Christians) had believed (in Muhammad ) and warded off evil (sin, ascribing
partners to Allah) and had become AlMuttaqun
(the pious - see V.2:2) We would indeed have blotted out their
sins and admitted them to Gardens of pleasure (in Paradise).
66. And if only they had acted according to the Taurat
(Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and what has (now) been sent down
to them from their Lord (the Qur'an), they would surely
have gotten provision from above them and from underneath their
feet. There are from among them people who are on the right
course (i.e. they act on the revelation and believe in Prophet
like 'Abdullah bin Salam ÑÖì
<> <>), but many
of them do evil deeds.
67. O Messenger (Muhammad )! Proclaim (the Message) which
has been sent down to you from your Lord. And if you do not,
then you have not conveyed His Message. Allah will protect
you from mankind. Verily, Allah guides not the people
68. Say (O Muhammad )
"O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! You have
nothing (as regards guidance) till you act according to the Taurat
(Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and what has (now) been sent down
to you from your Lord (the Qur'an)." Verily, that which
has been sent down to you (Muhammad )
from your Lord increases in many of them their obstinate rebellion
and disbelief. So be not sorrowful over the people who disbelieve.
69. Surely, those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah,
in His Messenger Muhammad
and all that was revealed to him from Allah), those who
are the Jews and the Sabians and the Christians, - whosoever believed
in Allah and the Last Day, and worked righteousness, on
them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
70. Verily, We took the covenant of the Children of
Israel and sent them Messengers. Whenever there came to them a
Messenger with what they themselves desired not - a group of them
they called liars, and others among them they killed.
71. They thought there will be no Fitnah (trial
or punishment), so they became blind and deaf; after that Allah
turned to them (with Forgiveness); yet again many of them became
blind and deaf. And Allah is the AllSeer of what
72. Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allah
is the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary)." But
the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: "O Children of Israel!
Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever
sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah
has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And
for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers)
there are no helpers.
73. Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allah
is the third of the three (in a Trinity)." But there is no
ilah (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped)
but One Ilah (God -Allah). And if they
cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall
the disbelievers among them.
74. Will they not repent to Allah and ask His
Forgiveness? For Allah is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
75. The Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary),
was no more than a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed
away before him. His mother [Maryam (Mary)] was a Siddiqah
[i.e. she believed in the words of Allah and His
Books (see Verse 66:12)]. They both used to eat food (as
any other human being, while Allah does not eat). Look
how We make the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses,
lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to them, yet look how
they are deluded away (from the truth).
76. Say (O Muhammad
to mankind): "How do you worship besides Allah something
which has no power either to harm or to benefit you? But it is
Allah Who is the AllHearer, AllKnower."
77. Say (O Muhammad ):
"O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Exceed
not the limits in your religion (by believing in something) other
than the truth, and do not follow the vain desires of people who
went astray in times gone by, and who misled many, and strayed
(themselves) from the Right Path."
78. Those among the Children of Israel
who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawud (David)
and 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because
they disobeyed (Allah and the Messengers) and were ever
transgressing beyond bounds.
79. They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar
(wrong, evildoing, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.)
which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do.
80. You see many of them taking the disbelievers as
their Auliya' (protectors and helpers). Evil
indeed is that which their ownselves have sent forward before
them, for that (reason) Allah's Wrath fell upon them and
in torment they will abide.
81. And had they believed in Allah, and in the
Prophet (Muhammad )
and in what has been revealed to him, never would they have taken
them (the disbelievers) as Auliya' (protectors and
helpers), but many of them are the Fasiqun (rebellious,
disobedient to Allah).
82. Verily, you will find the strongest among men
in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are
Al-Mushrikun (see V.2:105), and you will find the
nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We
are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests
and monks, and they are not proud.
83. And when they (who call themselves Christians)
listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad ), you see their eyes overflowing
with tears because of the truth they have recognised. They
say: "Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses.
84. "And why should we not believe in Allah
and in that which has come to us of the truth (Islamic Monotheism)?
And we wish that our Lord will admit us (in Paradise on the Day
of Resurrection) along with the righteous people (Prophet Muhammad
and his Companions ÑÖì
85. So because of what they said, Allah rewarded
them Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise), they will
abide therein forever. Such is the reward of gooddoers.
86. But those who disbelieved and belied Our Ayat
(proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.),
they shall be the dwellers of the (Hell) Fire.
87. O you who believe! Make not unlawful the Taiyibat
(all that is good as regards foods, things, deeds, beliefs,
persons, etc.) which Allah has made lawful to you, and transgress
not. Verily, Allah does not like the transgressors.
88. And eat of the things which Allah has provided
for you, lawful and good, and fear Allah in Whom you believe.
89. Allah will not punish you for what is uninentional
in your oaths, but He will punish you for your deliberate oaths;
for its expiation (a deliberate oath) feed ten Masakin
(poor persons), on a scale of the average of that with which you
feed your own families; or clothe them; or manumit a slave. But
whosoever cannot afford (that), then he should fast for three
days. That is the expiation for the oaths when you have sworn. And
protect your oaths (i.e. do not swear much). Thus
Allah make clear to you His Ayat (proofs, evidences,
verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) that you may be grateful.
90. O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic
drinks), gambling, AlAnsab,
and AlAzlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision)
are an abomination of Shaitan's (Satan) handiwork.
So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may
91. Shaitan (Satan) wants only to excite
enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks)
and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah
and from As-Salat (the prayer). So, will you
not then abstain?
92. And obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad
), and beware (of even coming near
to drinking or gambling or AlAnsab, or AlAzlam,
etc.) and fear Allah. Then if you turn away, you should
know that it is Our Messenger's duty to convey (the Message) in
the clearest way.
93. Those who believe and do righteous good deeds,
there is no sin on them for what they ate (in the past), if they
fear Allah (by keeping away from His forbidden things),
and believe and do righteous good deeds, and again fear Allah
and believe, and once again fear Allah and do good deeds
with Ihsan (perfection). And Allah loves
94. O you who believe! Allah will certainly
make a trial of you with something in (the matter of) the game
that is well within reach of your hands and your lances, that
Allah may test who fears Him unseen. Then whoever transgresses
thereafter, for him there is a painful torment.
95. O you who believe! Kill not game while you are
in a state of Ihram for Hajj or 'Umrah
(pilgrimage), and whosoever of you kills it intentionally,
the penalty is an offering, brought to the Ka'bah, of an eatable
animal (i.e. sheep, goat, cow, etc.) equivalent to the one
he killed, as adjudged by two just men among you; or, for expiation,
he should feed Masakin (poor persons), or its equivalent
in Saum (fasting), that he may taste the heaviness (punishment)
of his deed. Allah has forgiven what is past, but whosoever
commits it again, Allah will take retribution from him.
And Allah is AllMighty, All-Able of Retribution.
96. Lawful to you is (the pursuit of) watergame
and its use for food - for the benefit of yourselves and those
who travel, but forbidden is (the pursuit of) landgame as
long as you are in a state of Ihram (for Hajj
or 'Umrah). And fear Allah to Whom you shall
be gathered back.
97. Allah has made the Ka'bah, the Sacred House,
an asylum of security and Hajj and 'Umrah (pilgrimage)
for mankind, and also the Sacred Month and the animals of offerings
and the garlanded (people or animals, etc. marked with the
garlands on their necks made from the outer part of the stem of
the Makkah trees for their security), that you may know that Allah
has knowledge of all that is in the heavens and all that is in
the earth, and that Allah is the AllKnower of each
98. Know that Allah is Severe in punishment
and that Allah is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
99. The Messenger's duty [i.e. Our Messenger
whom We have sent to you, (O mankind)] is but to convey (the Message). And
Allah knows all that you reveal and all that you conceal.
100. Say (O Muhammad ):
"Not equal are AlKhabith (all that is
evil and bad as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods,
etc.) and AtTaiyib (all that is good as regards things,
deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.), even though the abundance
of Al-Khabith (evil) may please you." So fear
Allah much [(abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds
which He has forbidden) and love Allah much (perform all
kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], O men of understanding
in order that you may be successful.
101. O you who believe! Ask not about things which,
if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. But if you ask
about them while the Qur'an is being revealed, they will
be made plain to you. Allah has forgiven that, and
Allah is OftForgiving, Most Forbearing.
102. Before you, a community asked such questions,
then on that account they became disbelievers.
103. Allah has not instituted things like Bahirah
(a shecamel whose milk was spared for the idols and
nobody was allowed to milk it) or a Sa'ibah (a shecamel
let loose for free pasture for their false gods, e.g. idols,
etc., and nothing was allowed to be carried on it), or a Wasilah
(a shecamel set free for idols because it has given
birth to a shecamel at its first delivery and then again
gives birth to a shecamel at its second delivery) or a Ham
(a stallioncamel freed from work for their idols, after
it had finished a number of copulations assigned for it, all these
animals were liberated in honour of idols as practised by pagan
Arabs in the preIslamic period). But those who
disbelieve invent lies against Allah, and most of them have
104. And when it is said to them: "Come to what
Allah has revealed and unto the Messenger (Muhammad for the verdict of that which
you have made unlawful)." They say: "Enough for us is
that which we found our fathers following," even though their
fathers had no knowledge whatsoever and no guidance.
105. O you who believe! Take care of your ownselves,
[do righteous deeds, fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds
of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allah
much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)]. If
you follow the right guidance and enjoin what is right (Islamic
Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbid
what is wrong (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam
has forbidden) no hurt can come to you from those who are in error.
The return of you all is to Allah, then He will inform you
about (all) that which you used to do.
106. O you who believe! When death approaches any
of you, and you make a bequest, then take the testimony of two
just men of your own folk or two others from outside, if you are
travelling through the land and the calamity of death befalls
you. Detain them both after As-Salat (the prayer),
(then) if you are in doubt (about their truthfulness), let them
both swear by Allah (saying): "We wish not for any
worldly gain in this, even though he (the beneficiary) be our
near relative. We shall not hide Testimony of Allah,
for then indeed we should be of the sinful."
107. If then it gets known that these two had been
guilty of sin, let two others stand forth in their places, nearest
in kin from among those who claim a lawful right. Let them
swear by Allah (saying): "We affirm that our testimony
is truer than that of both of them, and that we have not trespassed
(the truth), for then indeed we should be of the wrongdoers."
108. That should make it closer (to the fact) that
their testimony would be in its true nature and shape (and thus
accepted), or else they would fear that (other) oaths would be
admitted after their oaths. And fear Allah and listen
( with obedience to Him). And Allah guides not the
people who are Al-Fasiqun (the rebellious and
109. On the Day when Allah will gather the Messengers
together and say to them: "What was the response you received
(from men to your teaching)? They will say: "We have no knowledge,
verily, only You are the AllKnower of all that is hidden
(or unseen, etc.)."
110. (Remember) when Allah will say (on the
Day of Resurrection). "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam
(Mary)! Remember My Favour to you and to your mother when I supported
you with RuhulQudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]
so that you spoke to the people in the cradle
and in maturity; and when I taught you writing, AlHikmah
(the power of understanding), the Taurat (Torah) and
the Injeel (Gospel); and when you made out of the clay, as it
were, the figure of a bird, by My Permission, and you breathed
into it, and it became a bird by My Permission, and you healed
those born blind, and the lepers by My Permission, and when you
brought forth the dead by My Permission; and when I restrained
the Children of Israel from you (when they resolved to kill you)
since you came unto them with clear proofs, and the disbelievers
among them said: 'This is nothing but evident magic.' "
111. And when I (Allah) put in the hearts of
Al-Hawarieen (the disciples) [of 'Iesa (Jesus)]
to believe in Me and My Messenger, they said: "We believe. And
bear witness that we are Muslims."
112. (Remember) when Al-Hawariun
(the disciples) said: "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)!
Can your Lord send down to us a table spread (with food) from
heaven?" 'Iesa (Jesus) said: "Fear Allah, if you
are indeed believers."
113. They said: "We wish to eat thereof and to
be stronger in Faith, and to know that you have indeed told us
the truth and that we ourselves be its witnesses."
114. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: "O
Allah, our Lord! Send us from heaven a table spread (with
food) that there may be for us - for the first and the last of
us - a festival and a sign from You; and provide us sustenance,
for You are the Best of sustainers."
115. Allah said: "I am going to send it
down unto you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, then
I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted
on anyone among (all) the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns)."
116. And (remember) when Allah will say (on
the Day of Resurrection): "O 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam
(Mary)! Did you say unto men: 'Worship me and my mother as two
gods besides Allah?' " He will say: "Glory
be to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had
I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You
know what is in my innerself though I do not know what is
in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the AllKnower of all
that is hidden and unseen.
117. "Never did I say to them aught except what
You (Allah) did command me to say: 'Worship Allah,
my Lord and your Lord.' And I was a witness over them while I
dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up, You were the Watcher
over them, and You are a Witness to all things. (This is
a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole
118. "If You punish them, they are Your slaves,
and if You forgive them, verily You, only You are the AllMighty,
119. Allah will say: "This is a Day on
which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are Gardens
under which rivers flow (in Paradise) - they shall abide therein
forever. Allah is pleased with them and they with Him. That
is the great success (Paradise).
120. To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens
and the earth and all that is therein, and He is Able to do all
