In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[47.1] (As for) those who
disbelieve and turn away from Allah's way, He shall render their
[47.2] And (as for) those who believe and do good, and
believe in what has been revealed to Muhammad, and it is the
very truth from their Lord, He will remove their evil from them
and improve their condition.
[47.3] That is because those who disbelieve follow
falsehood, and have given them their dowries, taking (them) in
marriage, not fornicating nor taking them for paramours in
secret; and whoever denies faith, his work indeed is of no
account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.
[47.4] So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve,
then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then
make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a
favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates.
That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly
have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of
you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the
way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.
[47.5] He will guide them and improve their condition.
[47.6] And cause them to enter the garden which He has
made known to them.
[47.7] O you who believe ! if you help (the cause of)
Allah, He will help you and make firm your feet.
[47.8] And (as for) those who disbelieve, for them is
destruction and He has made their deeds ineffective.
[47.9] That is because they hated what Allah revealed, so
He rendered their deeds null.
[47.10] Have they not then journeyed in the land and seen
how was the end of those before them: Allah brought down
destruction upon them, and the unbelievers shall have the like
[47.11] That is because Allah is the Protector of those
who believe, and because the unbelievers shall have no protector
[47.12] Surely Allah will make those who believe and do
good enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; and those who
disbelieve enjoy themselves and eat as the beasts eat, and the
fire is their abode.
[47.13] And how many a town which was far more powerful
than the town of yours which has driven you out: We destroyed
them so there was no helper for them.
[47.14] What! is he who has a clear argument from his
Lord like him to whom the evil of his work is made fairseeming:
and they follow their low desires.
[47.15] A parable of the garden which those guarding
(against evil) are promised: Therein are rivers of water that
does not alter, and rivers of milk the taste whereof does not
change, and rivers of drink delicious to those who drink, and
rivers of honey clarified and for them therein are all fruits
and protection from their Lord. (Are these) like those who abide
in the fire and who are made to drink boiling water so it rends
their bowels asunder.
[47.16] And there are those of them who seek to listen to
you, until when they go forth from you, they say to those who
have been given the knowledge: What was it that he said just
now? These are they upon whose hearts Allah has set a seal and
they follow their low desires.
[47.17] And (as for) those who follow the right
direction, He increases them in guidance and gives them their
guarding (against evil).
[47.18] Do they then wait for aught but the hour that it
should come to them all of a sudden? Now indeed the tokens of it
have (already) come, but how shall they have their reminder when
it comes on them?
[47.19] So know that there is no god but Allah, and, ask
protection for your fault and for the believing men and the
believing women; and Allah knows the place of your returning and
the place of your abiding.
[47.20] And those who believe say: Why has not a chapter
been revealed? But when a decisive chapter is revealed, and
fighting is mentioned therein you see those in whose hearts is a
disease look to you with the look of one fainting because of
death. Woe to them then!
[47.21] Obedience and a gentle word (was proper); but
when the affair becomes settled, then if they remain true to
Allah it would certainly be better for them.
[47.22] But if you held command, you were sure to make
mischief in the land and cut off the ties of kinship!
[47.23] Those it is whom Allah has cursed so He has made
them deaf and blinded their eyes.
[47.24] Do they not then reflect on the Quran? Nay, on
the hearts there are locks.
[47.25] Surely (as for) those who return on their backs
after that guidance has become manifest to them, the Shaitan has
made it a light matter to them; and He gives them respite.
[47.26] That is because they say to those who hate what
Allah has revealed: We will obey you in some of the affairs; and
Allah knows their secrets.
[47.27] But how will it be when the angels cause them to
die smiting their backs.
[47.28] That is because they follow what is displeasing
to Allah and are averse to His pleasure, therefore He has made
null their deeds.
[47.29] Or do those in whose hearts is a disease think
that Allah will not bring forth their spite?
[47.30] And if We please We would have made you know them
so that you would certainly have recognized them by their marks
and most certainly you can recognize them by the intent of
(their) speech; and Allah knows your deeds.
[47.31] And most certainly We will try you until We have
known those among you who exert themselves hard, and the
patient, and made your case manifest.
[47.32] Surely those who disbelieve and turn away from
Allah's way and oppose the Apostle after that guidance has
become clear to them cannot harm Allah in any way, and He will
make null their deeds.
[47.33] O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the
Apostle, and do not make your deeds of no effect.
[47.34] Surely those who disbelieve and turn away from
Allah's way, then they die while they are unbelievers, Allah
will by no means forgive them.
[47.35] And be not slack so as to cry for peace and you
have the upper hand, and Allah is with you, and He will not
bring your deeds to naught.
[47.36] The life of this world is only idle sport and
play, and if you believe and guard (against evil) He will give
you your rewards, and will not ask of you your possessions.
[47.37] If He should ask you for it and urge you, you
will be niggardly, and He will bring forth your malice.
[47.38] Behold! you are those who are called upon to
spend in Allah's way, but among you are those who are niggardly,
and whoever is niggardly is niggardly against his own soul; and
Allah is Self-sufficient and you have need (of Him), and if you
turn back He will bring in your place another people, then they
will not be like you.
