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
[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
[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 retributing (evil).
[59.5] Whatever palm-tree you cut down or leave standing
upon its roots, It is by Allah's command, and that He may abase
[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 all things.
[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
[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,
[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
[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
[59.15] Like those before them shortly; they tasted the
evil result of their affair, and they shall have a painful
[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
[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
[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
[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
[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,
