033 TheAllies

 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 I. O Prophet! be careful of (your duty to) Allah and do not 
 comply with (the wishes of) the unbelievers and the 
 hypocrites; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise;

 2. And follow what is revealed to you from your Lord; surely 
 Allah is Aware of what you do;

 3. And rely on Allah; and Allah is sufficient for a 

 4. Allah has not made for any man two hearts within him; nor 
 has He made your wives whose backs you liken to the backs of 
 your mothers as your mothers, nor has He made those whom you 
 assert to be your sons your real sons; these are the words 
 of your mouths; and Allah speaks the truth and He guides to 
 the way.

 5. Assert their relationship to their fathers; this is more 
 equitable with Allah; but if you do not know their fathers, 
 then they are your brethren in faith and your friends; and 
 there is no blame on you concerning that in which you made a 
 mistake, but (concerning) that which your hearts do 
 purposely (blame may rest on you), and Allah is Forgiving, 

 6. The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they 
 have on themselves, and his wives are (as) their mothers; 
 and the possessors of relationship have the better claim in 
 the ordinance of Allah to inheritance, one with respect to 
 another, than (other) believers, and (than) those who have 
 fled (their homes), except that you do some good to your 
 friends; this is written in the Book.

 / 7. And when We made a covenant with the prophets and with 
 you, and with Nuh and Ibrahim and Musa and Isa, son of 
 Marium, and We made with them a strong covenant

 8. That He may question the truthful of their truth, and He 
 has prepared for the unbelievers a painful punishment.

 9. O you who believe! call to mind the favor of Allah to you 
 when there came down upon you hosts, so We sent against them 
 a strong wind and hosts, that you saw not, and Allah is 
 Seeing what you do.

 10. When they came upon you from above you and from below 
 you, and when the eyes turned dull, and the hearts rose up 
 to the throats, and you began to think diverse thoughts of 

 11. There the believers were tried and they were shaken with 
 severe shaking.

 12. And when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was a 
 disease began to say: Allah and His Apostle did not promise 
 us (victory) but only to deceive.

 13. And when a party of them said: O people of Yasrib! there 
 IS no place to stand for you (here), therefore go back; and 
 a party of them asked permission of the prophet, saying. 
 Surely our houses are exposed; and they were not exposed; 
 they only desired to fly away.

 14. And if an entry were made upon them from the outlying 
 parts of it, then they were asked to wage war, they would 
 certainly have done it, and they would not have stayed in it 
 but a little while.

 15. And certainly they had made a covenant with Allah 
 before, that) they would not turn (their) backs; and Allah's 
 covenant shall be inquired of.

 16. Say: Flight shall not do you any good if you fly from 
 death or slaughter, and in that case you will not be allowed 
 to enjoy yourselves but a little.

 17. Say: Who is it that can withhold you from Allah if He 
 intends to do you evil, rather He intends to show you mercy? 
 And they will not find for themselves besides Allah any 
 guardian or a helper.

 18. Allah knows indeed those among you who hinder others and 
 those who say to their brethren: Come to us; and they come 
 not to the fight but a little,

 19. Being niggardly with respect to you; but when fear 
 comes, you will see them looking to you, their eyes rolling 
 like one swooning because of death; but when the fear is 
 gone they smite you with sharp tongues, being niggardly of 
 the good things. These have not believed, therefore Allah 
 has made.their doing naught; and this is easy to Allah.

 20. They think the allies are not gone, and if the allies 
 should come (again) they would fain be in the deserts with 
 the desert Arabs asking for news about you, and if they were 
 among you they would not fight save a little.

 21. Certainly you have in the Apostle of Allah an excellent 
 exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and 
 remembers Allah much.

 22. And when the believers saw the allies, they said: This 
 is what Allah and His Apostle promised us, and Allah and His 
 Apostle spoke the truth; and it only increased them in faith 
 and submission.

 23. Of the believers are men who are true to the covenant 
 which they made with Allah: so of them is he who 
 accomplished his vow, and of them is he who yet waits, and 
 they have not changed in the least

 24. That Allah may reward the truthful for their truth, and 
 punish the hypocrites if He please or turn to them 
 (mercifully); surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

 25. And Allah turned back the unbelievers in their rage; 
 they did not obtain any advantage, and Allah sufficed the 
 believers in fighting; and Allah is Strong, Mighty.

 26. And He drove down those of the followers of the Book who 
 backed them from their fortresses and He cast awe into their 
 hearts; some you killed and you took captive another part.

 27. And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings 
 and their property, and (to) a land which you have not yet 
 trodden, and Allah has power over all things.

 28. O Prophet! say to your wives: If you desire this world's 
 life and its adornment, then come, I will give you a 
 provision and allow you to depart a goodly departing

 29. And if you desire Allah and His Apostle and the latter 
 abode, then surely Allah has prepared for the doers of good 
 among you a mighty reward.

 30. O wives of the prophet! whoever of you commits an open 
 indecency, the punishment shall be increased to her doubly; 
 and this IS easy to Allah.

 31. And whoever of you is obedient to Allah and His Apostle 
 and does good, We will give to her her reward doubly, and We 
 have prepared for her an honorable sustenance.

 32. O wives of the Prophet! you are not like any other of 
 the women; If you will be on your guard, then be not soft in 
 (your) speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease yearn; 
 and speak a good word.

 33. And stay in your houses and do not display your finery 
 like the displaying of the ignorance of yore; and keep up 
 prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah and His 
 Apostle. Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness 
 from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a 
 (thorough) purifying.

 34. And keep to mind what is recited in your houses of the 
 communications of Allah and the wisdom; surely Allah is 
 Knower of subtleties, Aware.

 35. Surely the men who submit and the women who submit, and 
 the believing men and the believing women, and the obeying 
 men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and the 
 truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women 
 and the humble men and the humble women, and the almsgiving 
 men and the almsgiving women, and the fasting men and the 
 fasting women, and the men who guard their private parts and 
 the women who guard, and the men who remember Allah much and 
 the women who remember-- Allah has prepared for them 
 forgiveness and a mighty reward.

 36. And it behoves not a believing man and a believing woman 
 that they should have any choice in their matter when Allah 
 and His Apostle have decided a matter; and whoever disobeys 
 Allah and His Apostle, he surely strays off a manifest 

 37. And when you said to him to whom Allah had shown favor 
 and to whom you had shown a favor: Keep your wife to 
 yourself and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; and you 
 concealed in your soul what Allah would bring to light, and 
 you feared men, and Allah had a greater right that you 
 should fear Him. But when Zaid had accomplished his want of 
 her, We gave her to you as a wife, so that there should be 
 no difficulty for the believers in respect of the wives of 
 their adopted sons, when they have accomplished their want 
 of them; and Allah's command shall be performed.

 38. There is no harm in the Prophet doing that which Allah 
 has ordained for him; such has been the course of Allah with 
 respect to those who have gone before; and the command of 
 Allah is a decree that is made absolute:

 39. Those who deliver the messages of Allah and fear Him, 
 and do not fear any one but Allah; and Allah is sufficient 
 to take account.

 40. Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is 
 the Apostle of Allah and the Last of the prophets; and Allah 
 is cognizant of all things.

 41. O you who believe! remember Allah, remembering 

 42. And glorify Him morning and evening.

 43. He it is Who sends His blessings on you, and (so do) His 
 angels, that He may bring you forth out of utter darkness 
 into the light; and He is Merciful to the believers.

 44. Their salutation on the day that they meet Him shall be, 
 Peace, and He has prepared for them an honourable reward.

 45. O Prophet! surely We have sent you as a witness, and as 
 a bearer of good news and as a warner,

 46. And as one inviting to Allah by His permission, and as a 
 light-giving torch.

 47. And give to the believers the good news that they shall 
 have a great grace from Allah.

 48. And be not compliant to the unbelievers and the 
 hypocrites, and leave unregarded their annoying talk, and 
 rely on Allah; and Allah is sufficient as a Protector.

 49. O you who believe! when you marry the believing women, 
 then divorce them before you touch them, you have in their 
 case no term which you should reckon; so make some provision 
 for them and send them forth a goodly sending forth.

 50. O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives 
 whom you have given their dowries, and those whom your right 
 hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as 
 prisoners of war, and the daughters of your paternal uncles 
 and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters 
 of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal 
 aunts who fled with you; and a believing woman if she gave 
 herself to the Prophet, if the Prophet desired to marry 
 her-- specially for you, not for the (rest of) believers; We 
 know what We have ordained for them concerning their wives 
 and those whom their right hands possess in order that no 
 blame may attach to you; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

 51. You may put off whom you please of them, and you may 
 take to you whom you please, and whom you desire of those 
 whom you had separated provisionally; no blame attaches to 
 you; this is most proper, so that their eyes may be cool and 
 they may not grieve, and that they should be pleased, all of 
 them with what you give them, and Allah knows what is in 
 your hearts; and Allah is Knowing, Forbearing.

 52. It is not allowed to you to take women afterwards, nor 
 that you should change them for other wives, though their 
 beauty be pleasing to you, except what your right hand 
 possesses and Allah is Watchful over all things.

 53. O you who believe! do not enter the houses of the 
 Prophet unless permission is given to you for a meal, not 
 waiting for its cooking being finished-- but when you are 
 invited, enter, and when you have taken the food, then 
 disperse-- not seeking to listen to talk; surely this gives 
 the Prophet trouble, but he forbears from you, and Allah 
 does not forbear from the truth And when you ask of them any 
 goods, ask of them from behind a curtain; this is purer for 
 your hearts and (for) their hearts; and it does not behove 
 you that you should give trouble to the Apostle of Allah, 
 nor that you should marry his wives after him ever; surely 
 this is grievous in the sight of Allah.

 54. If you do a thing openly or do it in secret, then surely 
 Allah is Cognizant of all things.

 55. There is no blame on them in respect of their fathers, 
 nor their brothers, nor their brothers' sons, nor their 
 sisters' sons nor their own women, nor of what their right 
 hands possess; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; 
 surely Allah is a witness of all things.

 56. Surely Allah and His angels bless the Prophet; O you who 
 believe! call for (Divine) blessings on him and salute him 
 with a (becoming) salutation.

 57. Surely (as for) those who speak evil things of Allah and 
 His Apostle, Allah has cursed them in this world and the 
 here after, and He has prepared for them a chastisement 
 bringing disgrace.

 58. And those who speak evil things of the believing men and 
 the believing women without their having earned (it), they 
 are guilty indeed of a false accusation and a manifest sin.

 59. O Prophet! say to your wives and your daughters and the 
 women of the believers that they let down upon them their 
 over-garments; this will be more proper, that they may be 
 known, and thus they will not be given trouble; and Allah is 
 Forgiving, Merciful.

 60. If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease 
 and the agitators in the city do not desist, We shall most 
 certainly set you over them, then they shall not be your 
 neighbors in it but for a little while;

 61. Cursed: wherever they are found they shall be seized and 
 murdered, a (horrible) murdering.

 62. (Such has been) the course of Allah with respect to 
 those who have gone before; and you shall not find any 
 change in the course of Allah.

 63. Men ask you about the hour; say: The knowledge of it is 
 only with Allah, and what will make you comprehend that the 
 : hour may be nigh.

 64. Surely Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared 
 for them a burning fire,

 65. To abide therein for a long time; they shall not find a 
 protector or a helper.

 66. On the day when their faces shall be turned back into 
 the fire, they shall say: O would that we had obeyed Allah 
 and obeyed the Apostle!

 67. And they shall say: O our Lord! surely we obeyed our 
 leaders and our great men, so they led us astray from the 

 68. O our Lord! give them a double punishment and curse them 
 with a great curse.

 69. O you who believe! be not like those who spoke evil 
 things of Musa, but Allah cleared him of what they said, and 
 he was worthy of regard with Allah.

 70. O you who believe! be careful of(your duty to) Allah and 
 speak the right word,

 71. He will put your deeds into a right state for you, and 
 forgive you your faults; and whoever obeys Allah and His 
 Apostle, he indeed achieves a mighty success.

 72. Surely We offered the trust to the heavens and the earth 
 and the mountains, but they refused to be unfaithful to it 
 and feared from it, and man has turned unfaithful to it; 
 surely he is unjust, ignorant;

 73. So Allah will chastise the hypocritical men and the 
 hypocritical women and the polytheistic men and the 
 polytheistic women, and Allah will turn (mercifully) to the 
 believing women, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
