048 TheVictory

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

 1. Surely We have given to you a clear victory

 2. That Allah may forgive your community their past faults 
 and those to follow and complete His favor to you and keep 
 you on a right way,

 3. And that Allah might help you with a mighty help.

 4. He it is Who sent down tranquillity into the hearts of 
 the believers that they might have more of faith added to 
 their faith-- and Allah's are the hosts of the heavens and 
 the earth, and Allah is Knowing, Wise-- 

 S. That He may cause the believing men and the believing 
 women to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide 
 therein and remove from them their evil; and that is a grand 
 achievement with Allah

 6. And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the 
 hypocritical women, and the polytheistic men and the 
 polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts about 
 Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with 
 them and has cursed them and prepared hell for them, and 
 evil is the resort.

 7. And Allah's are the hosts of the heavens and the earth; 
 and Allah is Mighty, Wise.

 8. Surely We have sent you as a witness and as a bearer of 
 good news and as a warner,

 9. That you may believe in Allah and His Apostle and may aid 
 him and revere him; and (that) you may declare His glory, 
 morning and evening.

 10. Surely those who swear allegiance to you do but swear 
 allegiance to Allah; the hand of Allah is above their hands. 
 Therefore whoever breaks (his faith), he breaks it only to 
 the injury of his own soul, and whoever fulfills what he has 
 covenanted with Allah, He will grant him a mighty reward.

 11. Those of the dwellers of the desert who were left behind 
 will say to you: Our property and our families kept us busy, 
 so ask forgiveness for us. They say with their tongues what 
 is not in their hearts. Say: Then who can control anything 
 for you from Allah if He intends to do you harm or if He 
 intends to do you good; nay, Allah is Aware of what you do:

 12. Nay! you rather thought that the Apostle and the 
 believers would not return to their families ever, and that 
 was made fairseeming to your hearts and you thought an evil 
 thought and you were a people doomed to perish.

 13. And whoever does not believe in Allah and His Apostle, 
 then surely We have prepared burning fire for the 

 14. And Allah's is the kingdom. of the heavens and the 
 earth; He forgives whom He pleases and punishes whom He 
 pleases, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

 15. Those who are left behind will say when you set forth 
 for the gaining of acquisitions: Allow us (that) we may 
 follow you. They desire to change the world of Allah. Say: 
 By no means shall you follow us; thus did Allah say before. 
 But they will say: Nay! you are jealous of us. Nay! they do 
 not understand but a little.

 16. Say to those of the dwellers of the desert who were left 
 behind: You shall soon be invited (to fight) against a 
 people possessing mighty prowess; you will fight against 
 them until they submit; then if you obey, Allah will grant 
 you a good reward; and if you turn back as you turned back 
 before, He will punish you with a painful punishment.

 17. There is no harm in the blind, nor is there any harm in 
 the lame, nor is there any harm in the sick (if they do not 
 go forth); and whoever obeys Allah and His Apostle, He will 
 cause him to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, and 
 whoever turns back, He will punish him with a painful 

 18. Certainly Allah was well pleased with the believers when 
 they swore allegiance to you under the tree, and He knew 
 what was in their hearts, so He sent down tranquillity on 
 them and rewarded them with a near victory,

 19. And many acquisitions which they will take; and Allah is 
 Mighty, Wise.

 20. Allah promised you many acquisitions which you will 
 take, then He hastened on this one for you and held back the 
 hands of men from you, and that it may be a sign for the 
 believers and that He may guide you on a right path.

 21. And others which you have not yet been able to achieve 
 Allah has surely encompassed them, and Allah has power over 
 all things.

 22. And if those who disbelieve fight with you, they would 
 certainly turn (their) backs, then they would not find any 
 protector or a helper.

 23. Such has been the course of Allah that has indeed run 
 before, and you shall not find a change in Allah's course.

 24. And He it is Who held back their hands from you and your 
 hands from them in the valley of Mecca after He had given 
 you victory over them; and Allah is Seeing what you do.

 25. It is they who disbelieved and turned you away from the 
 Sacred Mosque and (turned off) the offering withheld from 
 arriving at its destined place; and were it not for the 
 believing men and the believing women, whom, not having 
 known, you might have trodden down, and thus something 
 hateful might have afflicted you on their account without 
 knowledge-- so that Allah may cause to enter into His mercy 
 whomsoever He pleases; had they been widely separated one 
 from another, We would surely have punished those who 
 disbelieved from among them with a painful punishment.

 26. When those who disbelieved harbored in their hearts 
 (feelings of) disdain, the disdain of (the days of) 
 ignorance, but Allah sent down His tranquillity on His 
 Apostle and on the believers, and made them keep the word of 
 guarding (against evil), and they were entitled to it and 
 worthy of it; and Allah is Cognizant of all things.

 27. Certainly Allah had shown to His Apostle the vision with 
 truth: you shall most certainly enter the Sacred Mosque, if 
 Allah pleases, in security, (some) having their heads shaved 
 and (others) having their hair cut, you shall not fear, but 
 He knows what you do not know, so He brought about a near 
 victory before that.

 28. He it is Who sent His Apostle with the guidance and the 
 true religion that He may make it prevail over all the 
 religions; and Allah is enough for a witness.

 29. Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah, and those with him are 
 firm of heart against the unbelievers, compassionate among 
 themselves; you will see them bowing down, prostrating 
 themselves, seeking grace from Allah and pleasure; their 
 marks are in their faces because of the effect of 
 prostration; that is their description in the Taurat and 
 their description in the Injeel; like as seed-produce that 
 puts forth its sprout, then strengthens it, so it becomes 
 stout and stands firmly on its stem, delighting the sowers 
 that He may enrage the unbelievers on account of them; Allah 
 has promised those among them who believe and do good, 
 forgiveness and a great reward.
