063 TheHypocrites

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

 1. When the hypocrites come to you, they say: We bear 
 witness that you are most surely Allah's Apostle; and Allah 
 knows that you are most surely His Apostle, and Allah bears 
 witness that the hypocrites are surely liars.

 2. They make their oaths a shelter, and thus turn away from 
 Allah's way; surely evil is that which they do.

 3. That is because they believe, then disbelieve, so a seal 
 is set upon their hearts so that they do not understand.

 4. And when you see them, their persons will please you, and 
 If they speak, you will listen to their speech; (they are) 
 as if they were big pieces of wood clad with garments; they 
 think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy, 
 therefore beware of them; may Allah destroy them, whence are 
 they turned back?

 5. And when it is said to them: Come, the Apostle of Allah 
 will ask forgiveness for you, they turn back their heads and 
 you may see them turning away while they are big with pride.

 6. It is alike to them whether you beg forgiveness for them 
 or do not beg forgiveness for them; Allah will never forgive 
 them; surely Allah does not guide the transgressing people.

 7. They it is who say: Do not spend upon those who are with 
 the Apostle of Allah until they break up. And Allah's are 
 the treasures of the heavens and the earth, but the 
 hypocrites do not understand.

 8. They say: If we return to Medina, the mighty will surely 
 drive out the meaner therefrom; and to Allah belongs the 
 might and to His Apostle and to the believers, but the 
 hypocrites do not know.

 9. O you who believe! let not your wealth, or your children,

 divert you from the remembrance of Allah; and whoever does 
 that, these are the losers.

 10. And spend out of what We have given you before death 
 comes to one of you, so that he should say: My Lord! why 
 didst Thou not respite me to a near term, so that I should 
 have given alms and been of the doers of good deeds?

 11. And Allah does not respite a soul when its appointed 
 term has come, and Allah is Aware of what you do.
