In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[60.1] O you who believe!
do not take My enemy and your enemy for friends: would you offer
them love while they deny what has come to you of the truth,
driving out the Apostle and yourselves because you believe in
Allah, your Lord? If you go forth struggling hard in My path and
seeking My pleasure, would you manifest love to them? And I know
what you conceal and what you manifest; and whoever of you does
this, he indeed has gone astray from the straight path.
[60.2] If they find you, they will be your enemies, and
will stretch forth towards you their hands and their tongues
with evil, and they ardently desire that you may disbelieve.
[60.3] Your relationship would not profit you, nor your
children on the day of resurrection; He will decide between you;
and Allah sees what you do.
[60.4] Indeed, there is for you a good example in Ibrahim
and those with him when they said to their people: Surely we are
clear of you and of what you serve besides Allah; we declare
ourselves to be clear of you, and enmity and hatred have
appeared between us and you forever until you believe in Allah
alone-- but not in what Ibrahim said to his father: I would
certainly ask forgiveness for you, and I do not control for you
aught from Allah-- Our Lord! on Thee do we rely, and to Thee do
we turn, and to Thee is the eventual coming:
[60.5] Our Lord! do not make us a trial for those who
disbelieve, and forgive us, our Lord! surely Thou art the
Mighty, the Wise.
[60.6] Certainly there is for you in them a good example,
for him who fears Allah and the last day; and whoever turns
back, then surely Allah is the Self-sufficient, the Praised.
[60.7] It may be that Allah will bring about friendship
between you and those whom you hold to be your enemies among
them; and Allah is Powerful; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[60.8] Allah does not forbid you respecting those who
have not made war against you on account of (your) religion, and
have not driven you forth from your homes, that you show them
kindness and deal with them justly; surely Allah loves the doers
[60.9] Allah only forbids you respecting those who made
war upon you on account of (your) religion, and drove you forth
from your homes and backed up (others) in your expulsion, that
you make friends with them, and whoever makes friends with them,
these are the unjust.
[60.10] O you who believe! when believing women come to
you flying, then examine them; Allah knows best their faith;
then if you find them to be believing women, do not send them
back to the unbelievers, neither are these (women) lawful for
them, nor are those (men) lawful for them, and give them what
they have spent; and no blame attaches to you in marrying them
when you give them their dowries; and hold not to the ties of
marriage of unbelieving women, and ask for what you have spent,
and kt them ask for what they have spent. That is Allah's
judgment; He judges between you, and Allah is Knowing, Wise.
[60.11] And if anything (out of the dowries) of your
wives has passed away from you to the unbelievers, then your
turn comes, give to those whose wives have gone away the like of
what they have spent, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah in
Whom you believe.
[60.12] O Prophet! when believing women come to you
giving you a pledge that they will not associate aught with
Allah, and will not steal, and will not commit fornication, and
will not kill their children, and will not bring a calumny which
they have forged of themselves, and will not disobey you in what
is good, accept their pledge, and ask forgiveness for them from
Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[60.13] O you who believe! do not make friends with a
people with whom Allah is wroth; indeed they despair of the
hereafter as the unbelievers despair of those in tombs.
