In the Name of Allah, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. Indeed Allah
has heard the statement of her (Khaulah bint Tha'labah) that disputes
with you (O Muhammad )
concerning her husband (Aus bin AsSamit), and complains
to Allah. And Allah hears the argument between you
both. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
2. Those among you
who make their wives unlawful (Az-Zihar ÇáÙåÇÑ)
to them by saying to them "You are like my mother's back."
They cannot be their mothers. None can be their mothers except
those who gave them birth. And verily, they utter an ill word
and a lie. And verily, Allah is Oft-Pardoning, Oft-Forgiving.
3. And those who
make unlawful to them (their wives) (by Az-Zihar ÇáÙåÇÑ)
and wish to free themselves from what they uttered, (the penalty)
in that case (is) the freeing of a slave before they touch each
other. That is an admonition to you (so that you may not return
to such an ill thing). And Allah is All-Aware of what you
4. And he who finds
not (the money for freeing a slave) must fast two successive months
before they both touch each other. And for him who is unable to
do so, he should feed sixty of Miskin (poor). That
is in order that you may have perfect Faith in Allah and
His Messenger. These are the limits set by Allah. And for
disbelievers, there is a painful torment.
5. Verily, those
who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ) will be
disgraced, as those before them (among the past nation), were
disgraced. And We have sent down clear Ayat (proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). And for
the disbelievers is a disgracing torment.
6. On the Day when
Allah will resurrect them all together (i.e. the Day of
Resurrection) and inform them of what they did. Allah has
kept account of it, while they have forgotten it. And Allah
is Witness over all things.
7. Have you not seen
that Allah knows whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever
is on the earth? There is no Najwa
(secret counsel) of three, but He is their fourth (with His Knowledge,
while He Himself is over the Throne, over the seventh heaven),
nor of five but He is their sixth (with His Knowledge), not
of less than that or more, but He is with them (with His Knowledge)
wheresoever they may be; and afterwards on the Day of Resurrection,
He will inform them of what they did. Verily, Allah is the
All-Knower of everything.
8. Have you not seen
those who were forbidden to hold secret counsels, and afterwards
returned to that which they had been forbidden, and conspired
together for sin and wrong doing and disobedience to the Messenger
). And when they come to you, they greet you with a greeting wherewith
Allah greets you not, and say within themselves: "Why
should Allah punish us not for what we say?" Hell will
be sufficient for them, they will burn therein, and worst indeed
is that destination!
9. O you who believe!
When you hold secret counsel, do it not for sin and wrong-doing,
and disobedience towards the Messenger (Muhammad ) but do it for Al-Birr (righteousness)
and Taqwa (virtues and piety); and fear Allah unto
Whom you shall be gathered.
10. Secret counsels
(conspiracies) are only from Shaitan (Satan), in
order that he may cause grief to the believers. But he cannot
harm them in the least, except as Allah permits, and in
Allah let the believers put their trust
11. O you who believe!
When you are told to make room in the assemblies, (spread out
and) make room. Allah will give you (ample) room (from His
Mercy). And when you are told to rise up [for prayers, Jihad
(holy fighting in Allah's Cause), or for any other good
deed], rise up. Allah will exalt in degree those of you
who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. And Allah
is Well-Acquainted with what you do.
12. O you who believe!
When you (want to) consult the Messenger (Muhammad ) in private, spend something in
charity before your private consultation. That will be better
and purer for you. But if you find not (the means for it), then
verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
13. Are you afraid
of spending in charity before your private consultation (with
him)? If then you do it not, and Allah has forgiven you,
then (at least) perform As-Salat (IqamatasSalat)
and give Zakat and obey Allah (i.e. do all
what Allah and His Prophet
order you to do). And Allah is All-Aware of what you do.
14. Have you (O Muhammad
) not seen those (hypocrites) who
take for friends a people upon whom is the Wrath of Allah
(i.e. Jews)? They are neither of you (Muslims) nor of them (Jews),
and they swear to a lie while they know.
15. Allah has
prepared for them a severe torment. Evil indeed is that which
they used to do.
16. They have made
their oaths a screen (for their evil actions). Thus they hinder
(men) from the Path of Allah, so they shall have a humiliating
17. Their children
and their wealth will avail them nothing against Allah.
They will be (the) dwellers of the Fire, to dwell therein forever.
18. On the Day when
Allah will resurrect them all together (for their account),
then they will swear to Him as they swear to you (O Muslims).
And they think that they have something (to stand upon). Verily,
they are liars!
(Satan) has overtaken them. So he has made them forget the remembrance
of Allah. They are the party of Shaitan (Satan).
Verily, it is the party of Shaitan (Satan) that will
be the losers!
20. Those who oppose
Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ), they will be among the lowest
21. Allah has
decreed: "Verily! It is I and My Messengers who shall be
the victorious." Verily, Allah is All-Powerful, All-Mighty.
22. You (O Muhammad
) will not find any people who
believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with
those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ), even though they were their
fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people).
For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened
them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from
Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which
rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased
with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah.
Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be the successful.
