In the name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful.
[59.1] Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth declares
the glory of Allah, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
[59.2] He it is Who caused those who disbelieved of the followers
of the Book to go forth from their homes at the first banishment you did
not think that they would go forth, while they were certain that their fortresses
would defend them against Allah; but Allah came to them whence they did not
expect, and cast terror into their hearts; they demolished their houses with
their own hands and the hands of the believers; therefore take a lesson,
O you who have eyes!
[59.3] And had it not been that Allah had decreed for them the exile,
He would certainly have punished them in this world, and m the hereafter
they shall have chastisement of the fire.
[59.4] That is because they acted in opposition to Allah and His Apostle,
and whoever acts in opposition to Allah, then surely Allah is severe in
[59.5] Whatever palm-tree you cut down or leave standing upon its
roots, It 15 by Allah's command, and that He may abase the transgressors.
[59.6] And whatever Allah restored to His Apostle from them you did
not press forward against it any horse or a riding camel but Allah gives
authority to His apostles against whom He pleases, and Allah has power over
[59.7] Whatever Allah has restored to His Apostle from the people
of the towns, it is for Allah and for the Apostle, and for the near of kin
and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, so that it may not be a thing
taken by turns among the rich of you, and whatever the Apostle gives you,
accept it, and from whatever he forbids you, keep back, and be careful of
(your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in retributing (evil):
[59.8] (It is) for the poor who fled their homes and their possessions,
seeking grace of Allah and (His) pleasure, and assisting Allah and His Apostle:
these it is that are the truthful.
[59.9] And those who made their abode in the city and in the faith
before them love those who have fled to them, and do not find in their hearts
a need of what they are given, and prefer (them) before themselves though
poverty may afflict them, and whoever is preserved from the niggardliness
of his soul, these it is that are the successful ones.
[59.10] And those who come after them say: Our Lord! forgive us and
those of our brethren who had precedence of us in faith, and do not allow
any spite to remain in our hearts towards those who believe, our Lord! surely
Thou art Kind, Merciful.
[59.11] Have you not seen those who have become hypocrites? They say
to those of their brethren who disbelieve from among the followers of the
Book: If you are driven forth, we shall certainly go forth with you, and
we will never obey any one concerning you, and if you are fought against,
we will certainly help you, and Allah bears witness that they are most surely
[59.12] Certainly if these are driven forth, they will not go forth
with them, and if they are fought against, they will not help them, and even
if they help-them, they will certainly turn (their) backs, then they shall
not be helped.
[59.13] You are certainly greater in being feared in their hearts
than Allah; that is because they are a people who do not understand
[59.14] They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified
towns or from behind walls; their fighting between them is severe, you may
think them as one body, and their hearts are disunited; that is because they
are a people who have no sense.
[59.15] Like those before them shortly; they tasted the evil result
of their affair, and they shall have a painful punishment.
[59.16] Like the Shaitan when he says to man: Disbelieve, but when
he disbelieves, he says: I am surely clear of you; surely I fear Allah, the
Lord of the worlds.
[59.17] Therefore the end of both of them is that they are both in
the fire to abide therein, and that is the reward of the unjust.
[59.18] O you who believe! be careful of (your duty to) Allah, and
let every soul consider what it has sent on for the morrow, and be careful
of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is Aware of what you do.
[59.19] And be not like those who forsook Allah, so He made them forsake
their own souls: these it is that are the transgressors.
[59.20] Not alike are the inmates of the fire and the dwellers of
the garden: the dwellers of the garden are they that are the achievers.
[59.21] Had We sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would certainly
have seen it falling down, splitting asunder because of the fear of Allah,
and We set forth these parables to men that they may reflect.
[59.22] He is Allah besides Whom there is no god; the Knower of the
unseen and the seen; He is the Beneficent, the Merciful
[59.23] He is Allah, besides Whom there is no god; the King, the Holy,
the Giver of peace, the Granter of security, Guardian over all, the Mighty,
the Supreme, the Possessor of every greatness Glory be to Allah from what
they set up (with Him).
[59.24] He is Allah the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner; His are
the most excellent names; whatever is in the heavens and the earth declares
His glory; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
