MY Revelations (Ayts) were recited to you, but (hearing the voice of the Rasool) you used to turn back on your heels

مُسْتَكْبِرِينَ بِهِ سَامِرًا تَهْجُرُونَ

67.             Mustakbireena bihi samiran tahjuroona
In your arrogance you used to pay no respect to him, (you) used to ridicule him in your meeting places and used to talk rubbish.

أَفَلَمْ يَدَّبَّرُوا الْقَوْلَ أَمْ جَاءهُم مَّا لَمْ يَأْتِ آبَاءهُمُ الْأَوَّلِينَ

68.             Afalam yaddabbaroo alqawla am jaahum ma lam yati abaahumu alawwaleena
Then have these people never pondered over this Word (of Allh, subhaana wa taaala)? Or has he brought such a thing that had never come to their forefathers?

أَمْ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا رَسُولَهُمْ فَهُمْ لَهُ مُنكِرُونَ

69.             Am lam yaAArifoo rasoolahum fahum lahu munkiroona
Or did they never know about their Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) that (they) skip away (because of being stranger) from him?

أَمْ يَقُولُونَ بِهِ جِنَّةٌ بَلْ جَاءهُم بِالْحَقِّ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ لِلْحَقِّ كَارِهُونَ

70.             Am yaqooloona bihi jinnatun bal jaahum bialhaqqi waaktharuhum lilhaqqi karihoona
Or are they believers of this thing that he has no sense? Absolutely not, in fact he has brought Truth and most of them do not like the Truth
--

وَلَوِ اتَّبَعَ الْحَقُّ أَهْوَاءهُمْ لَفَسَدَتِ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ بَلْ أَتَيْنَاهُم بِذِكْرِهِمْ فَهُمْ عَن ذِكْرِهِم مُّعْرِضُونَ

71.             Walawi ittabaAAa alhaqqu ahwaahum lafasadati alssamawatu waalardu waman feehinna bal ataynahum bithikrihim fahum AAan thikrihim muAAridoona
And if ever the truth had followed their desires then the system of the skies and the earth and all that is in it would have been overturned (contaminated)
--Absolutely not, but WE have brought their own testimonial to them and they are turning their faces away from their declaration.

أَمْ تَسْأَلُهُمْ خَرْجًا فَخَرَاجُ رَبِّكَ خَيْرٌ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِقِينَ

72.             Am tasaluhum kharjan fakharaju rabbika khayrun wahuwa khayru alrraziqeena
Are you asking anything from them? The reward of your Rbb is better for you and HE is the Best Provider.

وَإِنَّكَ لَتَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

73.             Wainnaka latadAAoohum ila siratin mustaqeemin
You are inviting them to the Straight Path.

وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْآخِرَةِ عَنِ الصِّرَاطِ لَنَاكِبُونَ

74.             Wainna allatheena la yuminoona bialakhirati AAani alssirati lanakiboona
But those people who do not believe in the Hereafter want to deviate from the Straight Path.

وَلَوْ رَحِمْنَاهُمْ وَكَشَفْنَا مَا بِهِم مِّن ضُرٍّ لَّلَجُّوا فِي طُغْيَانِهِمْ يَعْمَهُونَ

75.             Walaw rahimnahum wakashafna ma bihim min durrin lalajjoo fee tughyanihim yaAAmahoona
If WE show them OUR Mercy and relieve the suffering of their misery in which they are nowadays, then they will firmly persist in their rebellion.

وَلَقَدْ أَخَذْنَاهُم بِالْعَذَابِ فَمَا اسْتَكَانُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَمَا يَتَضَرَّعُونَ

76.             Walaqad akhathnahum bialAAathabi fama istakanoo lirabbihim wama yatadarraAAoona
Their behavior is such that WE inflicted them with misery; even then, they neither bowed down before their Rbb nor (they) adopted submissiveness.

حَتَّى إِذَا فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِم بَابًا ذَا عَذَابٍ شَدِيدٍ إِذَا هُمْ فِيهِ مُبْلِسُونَ

77.             Hatta itha fatahna AAalayhim baban tha AAathabin shadeedin itha hum feehi mublisoona
Although when a situation will come to the point that WE open a gate of severe punishment on them then all of sudden you will see that in that situation they are hopeless of all good. (R) 4

وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنشَأَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَشْكُرُونَ

78.             Wahuwa allathee anshaa lakumu alssamAAa waalabsara waalafidata qaleelan ma tashkuroona
HE is Allh WHO has given you the abilities to hear and see and heart to think.
But you people seldom become thankful.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي ذَرَأَكُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَإِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ

79.             Wahuwa allathee tharaakum fee alardi wailayhi tuhsharoona

بَلْ قَالُوا مِثْلَ مَا قَالَ الْأَوَّلُونَ

81.             Bal qaloo mithla ma qala alawwaloona
But these people say the same thing what their predecessors have said (before).

قَالُوا أَئِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًا وَعِظَامًا أَئِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ

82.             Qaloo aitha mitna wakunna turaban waAAithaman ainna lamabAAoothoona
They say: "What, when we shall become dust after death and will turn into (remain as) skeleton then shall we be raised again to life?

لَقَدْ وُعِدْنَا نَحْنُ وَآبَاؤُنَا هَذَا مِن قَبْلُ إِنْ هَذَا إِلَّا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ

83.             Laqad wuAAidna nahnu waabaona hatha min qablu in hatha illa asateeru alawwaleena
We have heard many such promises and before us, our forefathers have also been hearing it. These are merely old stories.

قُل لِّمَنِ الْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهَا إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

84.             Qul limani alardu waman feeha in kuntum taAAlamoona
Ask them, tell me if you know -- whose is the earth and its all population?

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ

85.             Sayaqooloona lillahi qul afala tathakkaroona
They will certainly say; it belongs to Allh. Say, then why dont you come into sense?

86.             Qul man rabbu alssamawati alssabAAi warabbu alAAarshi alAAatheemi
Ask them, "Who is the Owner (Rbb) of the Seven Skies and the Great Throne?

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ

87.             Sayaqooloona lillahi qul afala tattaqoona
They will surely say Allh. Ask, then why dont you fear (Allh, subhaana wa taaala)?

قُلْ مَن بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُوَ يُجِيرُ وَلَا يُجَارُ عَلَيْهِ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

Ask them tell if you know -- whose authority (control) is over everything? And who is HE, WHO gives protection and no one can give protection against HIM?

89.             Sayaqooloona lillahi qul faanna tusharoona
They will certainly say that this thing is only for Allh Alone. Ask, then why are you having illusion (deception)?

90.             Bal ataynahum bialhaqqi wainnahum lakathiboona
WE have brought the Truth before them, and there is no doubt that these people are liars.

مَا اتَّخَذَ اللَّهُ مِن وَلَدٍ وَمَا كَانَ مَعَهُ مِنْ إِلَهٍ إِذًا لَّذَهَبَ كُلُّ إِلَهٍ بِمَا خَلَقَ وَلَعَلَا بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ

Allh has not taken anyone as HIS offspring, and there is no other deity (ilh) with (except) HIM. If it would be so, then each deity would have taken away HIS creature and then they would have attacked each other (to overpower). Allh is Pure from all those things, which these people attribute to HIM.

عَالِمِ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ فَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

94.             Rabbi fala tajAAalnee fee alqawmi alththalimeena
Then my Rbb, do not include me among these cruel people (Zlimn).

وَإِنَّا عَلَى أَن نُّرِيَكَ مَا نَعِدُهُمْ لَقَادِرُونَ

95.             Wainna AAala an nuriyaka ma naAAiduhum laqadiroona
And the fact is, that WE have the power to bring that thing in front of your own eyes with which WE are threatening them.

ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ السَّيِّئَةَ نَحْنُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يَصِفُونَ

96.             IdfaAA biallatee hiya ahsanu alssayyiata nahnu aAAlamu bima yasifoona
O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), repel evil with that which is best. WE are well aware of those things that they utter against you.

And, my Rbb, I also seek YOUR Protection from it that they even come near me."

حَتَّى إِذَا جَاء أَحَدَهُمُ الْمَوْتُ قَالَ رَبِّ ارْجِعُونِ

99.             Hatta itha jaa ahadahumu almawtu qala rabbi irjiAAooni
(These people will not stop what they are doing) Until, when death will come to anyone of them then he/she will start saying, "O my Rbb, send me back to the world which I have left behind,

لَعَلِّي أَعْمَلُ صَالِحًا فِيمَا تَرَكْتُ كَلَّا إِنَّهَا كَلِمَةٌ هُوَ قَائِلُهَا وَمِن وَرَائِهِم بَرْزَخٌ إِلَى يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ

100.          LaAAallee aAAmalu salihan feema taraktu kalla innaha kalimatun huwa qailuha wamin waraihim barzakhun ila yawmi yubAAathoona
It is hoped that now I will do good deeds"
-- Absolutely not, it is just a word which he/she is uttering. Now behind all of these (who have died) there is a barrier (Barzakh) until the Day of another life (Day of Judgment).

فَإِذَا نُفِخَ فِي الصُّورِ فَلَا أَنسَابَ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَلَا يَتَسَاءلُونَ

102.          Faman thaqulat mawazeenuhu faolaika humu almuflihoona
At that time, whose scales (weight of good deeds) will be heavy they will be successful.

وَمَنْ خَفَّتْ مَوَازِينُهُ فَأُوْلَئِكَ الَّذِينَ خَسِرُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ فِي جَهَنَّمَ خَالِدُونَ

103.          Waman khaffat mawazeenuhu faolaika allatheena khasiroo anfusahum fee jahannama khalidoona
And whose scales (weight of good deeds) will be light, those will be the people who have put themselves in loss; they will abide in Hell forever.

Allh will reply: "Get lost from here, remain in it and do not talk to ME.

إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَرِيقٌ مِّنْ عِبَادِي يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا آمَنَّا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الرَّاحِمِينَ

The adulteress (woman who commits adultery) and the adulterer (man who commits adultery), strike each of them a hundred lashes. And the emotion of having pity on them should not withhold you in the matter of Deen of Allh (Islamic way of life) if you have Faith in Allh and the Last Day. And a group of believers should be present at the time of their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried people, but if married people are guilty of such crime-- their punishment is to stone them to death).

If the Mercy and the Blessing of Allh would not be on you people and it would not be that Allh is Most Merciful and All-Wise then (the matter of accusing of wives would have put you in great complication) (R) 7

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ جَاؤُوا بِالْإِفْكِ عُصْبَةٌ مِّنكُمْ لَا تَحْسَبُوهُ شَرًّا لَّكُم بَلْ هُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُم مَّا اكْتَسَبَ مِنَ الْإِثْمِ وَالَّذِي تَوَلَّى كِبْرَهُ مِنْهُمْ لَهُ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ

11.            Inna allatheena jaoo bialifki AAusbatun minkum la tahsaboohu sharran lakum bal huwa khayrun lakum likulli imriin minhum ma iktasaba mina alithmi waallathee tawalla kibrahu minhum lahu AAathabun AAatheemun
Those people who have fabricated this scandal (against 'Aishah, may Allh, subhaana wa taaala; be pleased with her, the wife of the Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) they are a group from among you. Do not consider this incident, as an evil thing for you but this is also good for you. Whoever participated in it has earned sin according to his/her participation, and the one who has played major role in it; there is a severe punishment for him.

لَوْلَا إِذْ سَمِعْتُمُوهُ ظَنَّ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتُ بِأَنفُسِهِمْ خَيْرًا وَقَالُوا هَذَا إِفْكٌ مُّبِينٌ

12.            Lawla ith samiAAtumoohu thanna almuminoona waalmuminatu bianfusihim khayran waqaloo hatha ifkun mubeenun
The time when you people had heard about it the same moment why did not the believers men and women have good thought for themselves and why did not say: "This is an obvious allegation?"

لَوْلَا جَاؤُوا عَلَيْهِ بِأَرْبَعَةِ شُهَدَاء فَإِذْ لَمْ يَأْتُوا بِالشُّهَدَاء فَأُوْلَئِكَ عِندَ اللَّهِ هُمُ الْكَاذِبُونَ

13.            Lawla jaoo AAalayhi biarbaAAati shuhadaa faith lam yatoo bialshshuhadai faolaika AAinda Allahi humu alkathiboona
Why did those people not bring four witnesses (to prove their allegation)? Since they have not brought the witnesses, then they are the liars in the Sight of Allh.

وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ لَمَسَّكُمْ فِي مَا أَفَضْتُمْ فِيهِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ

14.            Walawla fadlu Allahi AAalaykum warahmatuhu fee alddunya waalakhirati lamassakum fee ma afadtum feehi AAathabun AAatheemun
If the Grace and Mercy of Allh would not be on you people in this world and in the Hereafter then a great torment would have seized you for that in which you people had involved yourselves.

إِذْ تَلَقَّوْنَهُ بِأَلْسِنَتِكُمْ وَتَقُولُونَ بِأَفْوَاهِكُم مَّا لَيْسَ لَكُم بِهِ عِلْمٌ وَتَحْسَبُونَهُ هَيِّنًا وَهُوَ عِندَ اللَّهِ عَظِيمٌ

15.            Ith talaqqawnahu bialsinatikum wataqooloona biafwahikum ma laysa lakum bihi AAilmun watahsaboonahu hayyinan wahuwa AAinda Allahi AAatheemun
(Just think, what a severe mistake you were committing at that time) When you were propagating this lie from person to person, and you were saying those things from your mouth about which you did not have any knowledge. You were considering it a minor thing, but it was a big thing in the Sight of Allh.

وَلَوْلَا إِذْ سَمِعْتُمُوهُ قُلْتُم مَّا يَكُونُ لَنَا أَن نَّتَكَلَّمَ بِهَذَا سُبْحَانَكَ هَذَا بُهْتَانٌ عَظِيمٌ

16.            Walawla ith samiAAtumoohu qultum ma yakoonu lana an natakallama bihatha subhanaka hatha buhtanun AAatheemun
When you heard about it at the same moment why did you not say? "It is not right for us to utter such thing, Praise to Allh this is a hateful blame."

يَعِظُكُمُ اللَّهُ أَن تَعُودُوا لِمِثْلِهِ أَبَدًا إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

17.            YaAAithukumu Allahu an taAAoodoo limithlihi abadan in kuntum mumineena
Allh advises you that in future never commit such mistake, if you are true believers.

وَيُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ

18.            Wayubayyinu Allahu lakumu alayati waAllahu AAaleemun hakeemun
Allh gives you clear guidance and HE is All Knowing and All Wise.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُحِبُّونَ أَن تَشِيعَ الْفَاحِشَةُ فِي الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

19.            Inna allatheena yuhibboona an tasheeAAa alfahishatu fee allatheena amanoo lahum AAathabun aleemun fee alddunya waalakhirati waAllahu yaAAlamu waantum la taAAlamoona
Those people, who want that indecency should spread among the group of those who brought Faith, they deserve severe punishment in this world and in the Hereafter, Allh Knows and you do not know.

وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ وَأَنَّ اللَّه رَؤُوفٌ رَحِيمٌ

20.            Walawla fadlu Allahi AAalaykum warahmatuhu waanna Allaha raoofun raheemun
If the Grace of Allh and HIS Mercy would not be on you and it would not be, that Allh is all Loving and Most Merciful (then this scandal would have produced severe results)
. (R) 8

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّبِعُوا خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ وَمَن يَتَّبِعْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَإِنَّهُ يَأْمُرُ بِالْفَحْشَاء وَالْمُنكَرِ وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ مَا زَكَا مِنكُم مِّنْ أَحَدٍ أَبَدًا وَلَكِنَّ اللَّهَ يُزَكِّي مَن يَشَاء وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

21.            Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo la tattabiAAoo khutuwati alshshaytani waman yattabiAA khutuwati alshshaytani fainnahu yamuru bialfahshai waalmunkari walawla fadlu Allahi AAalaykum warahmatuhu ma zaka minkum min ahadin abadan walakinna Allaha yuzakkee man yashao waAllahu sameeAAun AAaleemun
O people, who have brought Faith, do not follow the footsteps of Shaitn (Satan). Whosoever will follow him (Satan) then he (Satan) will command him/her for indecency and wickedness (Al-Fahsh' and Al-Munkar). If the Mercy and the Grace of Allh would not be on you then no one among you could have ever been purified (from sins). But Allh purifies whom HE wills, and Allh is All-Hearer and All-Knower.

وَلَا يَأْتَلِ أُوْلُوا الْفَضْلِ مِنكُمْ وَالسَّعَةِ أَن يُؤْتُوا أُوْلِي الْقُرْبَى وَالْمَسَاكِينَ وَالْمُهَاجِرِينَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَلْيَعْفُوا وَلْيَصْفَحُوا أَلَا تُحِبُّونَ أَن يَغْفِرَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

22.            Wala yatali oloo alfadli minkum waalssaAAati an yutoo olee alqurba waalmasakeena waalmuhajireena fee sabeeli Allahi walyaAAfoo walyasfahoo ala tuhibboona an yaghfira Allahu lakum waAllahu ghafoorun raheemun
Those people among you who are blessed with grace and wealth should not swear that they would not help their relatives -- the poor (Al-Maskn) and those who left their homes for the Cause of Allh. They should forgive and overlook. Do you not want that Allh should forgive you? And this is the attribute of Allh that HE is Oft-Forgiving and Most Loving.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَرْمُونَ الْمُحْصَنَاتِ الْغَافِلَاتِ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ لُعِنُوا فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ

23.            Inna allatheena yarmoona almuhsanati alghafilati almuminati luAAinoo fee alddunya waalakhirati walahum AAathabun AAatheemun
Those people who accuse chaste, ignorant, and believing woman; a cursed has been laid on them in this life as well as in the Hereafter and there is a severe punishment for them.

يَوْمَ تَشْهَدُ عَلَيْهِمْ أَلْسِنَتُهُمْ وَأَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَرْجُلُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ

24.            Yawma tashhadu AAalayhim alsinatuhum waaydeehim waarjuluhum bima kanoo yaAAmaloona
They should not forget that Day when their own tongues, hands and feet will testify against their deeds.

يَوْمَئِذٍ يُوَفِّيهِمُ اللَّهُ دِينَهُمُ الْحَقَّ وَيَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْحَقُّ الْمُبِينُ

25.            Yawmaithin yuwaffeehimu Allahu deenahumu alhaqqa wayaAAlamoona anna Allaha huwa alhaqqu almubeenu
On that day, Allh will fully recompense them for that which they deserve and they will come to know that Allh is the Truth, WHO does the manifestation of the truth.

الْخَبِيثَاتُ لِلْخَبِيثِينَ وَالْخَبِيثُونَ لِلْخَبِيثَاتِ وَالطَّيِّبَاتُ لِلطَّيِّبِينَ وَالطَّيِّبُونَ لِلطَّيِّبَاتِ أُوْلَئِكَ مُبَرَّؤُونَ مِمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ وَرِزْقٌ كَرِيمٌ

The malignant (corrupt) women are for malignant (corrupt) men and malignant men are for the malignant women. Pure (chaste) women are for pure (chaste) men and pure men are for the pure women. They are pure (innocent) from those scandals, which the slanderers utter; there is Forgiveness for them and the blessed provisions (Rizqun Karm). (R) 9

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَدْخُلُوا بُيُوتًا غَيْرَ بُيُوتِكُمْ حَتَّى تَسْتَأْنِسُوا وَتُسَلِّمُوا عَلَى أَهْلِهَا ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ

27.            Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo la tadkhuloo buyootan ghayra buyootikum hatta tastanisoo watusallimoo AAala ahliha thalikum khayrun lakum laAAallakum tathakkaroona
O people who have brought Faith, do not enter in others (peoples) houses except yours -- until you get the households permission and send greetings of peace to the household, this is the best way for you. It is hoped that you will care for it.

فَإِن لَّمْ تَجِدُوا فِيهَا أَحَدًا فَلَا تَدْخُلُوهَا حَتَّى يُؤْذَنَ لَكُمْ وَإِن قِيلَ لَكُمُ ارْجِعُوا فَارْجِعُوا هُوَ أَزْكَى لَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ عَلِيمٌ

28.            Fain lam tajidoo feeha ahadan fala tadkhulooha hatta yuthana lakum wain qeela lakumu irjiAAoo fairjiAAoo huwa azka lakum waAllahu bima taAAmaloona AAaleemun
And if you do not find anyone there then do not enter until permission is granted to you, and if you are asked to go back then go back, this is a purer way for you, and whatever you do Allh is Well Aware of it.

لَّيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ جُنَاحٌ أَن تَدْخُلُوا بُيُوتًا غَيْرَ مَسْكُونَةٍ فِيهَا مَتَاعٌ لَّكُمْ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تُبْدُونَ وَمَا تَكْتُمُونَ

29.            Laysa AAalaykum junahun an tadkhuloo buyootan ghayra maskoonatin feeha mataAAun lakum waAllahu yaAAlamu ma tubdoona wama taktumoona
However, there is no sin in it for you that you enter in such houses where no one lives and in which there is something for your benefit. Whatever you hide and whatever you disclose, Allh knows all that very well.

قُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَغُضُّوا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ وَيَحْفَظُوا فُرُوجَهُمْ ذَلِكَ أَزْكَى لَهُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا يَصْنَعُونَ

30.            Qul lilmumineena yaghuddoo min absarihum wayahfathoo furoojahum thalika azka lahum inna Allaha khabeerun bima yasnaAAoona
O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) tell the believing men to restrain their gaze, and guard their private parts, this is a purer way for them, whatever they do Allh is All-Aware of it.

وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَى جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَائِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَاء بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَائِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَاء بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي أَخَوَاتِهِنَّ أَوْ نِسَائِهِنَّ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُنَّ أَوِ التَّابِعِينَ غَيْرِ أُوْلِي الْإِرْبَةِ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ أَوِ الطِّفْلِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَظْهَرُوا عَلَى عَوْرَاتِ النِّسَاء وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِن زِينَتِهِنَّ وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

And O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) tell the believing women to restrain their gaze, and guard their private parts, and do not show their beautification except that which is displayed-off itself, and keep their veils over their chests (Juyubihinna). They should not show their beautification except to their husbands, fathers, husband's fathers, sons, husband's sons, brothers, brother's sons, sister's sons, female associates, their female slaves, those male attendants who do not have any other desire (who lack sexual desire), and those children who still do not have the (carnal) knowledge of womens hidden things. They should not walk striking their feet on the ground that the beautification, which they have hidden, should not be revealed to the people. O believers, you collectively ask for the Forgiveness of Allh it is hoped that you will attain success.

وَأَنكِحُوا الْأَيَامَى مِنكُمْ وَالصَّالِحِينَ مِنْ عِبَادِكُمْ وَإِمَائِكُمْ إِن يَكُونُوا فُقَرَاء يُغْنِهِمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ

32.            Waankihoo alayama minkum waalssaliheena min AAibadikum waimaikum in yakoonoo fuqaraa yughnihimu Allahu min fadlihi waAllahu wasiAAun AAaleemun
Those people who are single among you, and those who are pious (Slihn) among your female slaves arrange their marriages. If they are poor then Allh will enrich them with HIS Bounty; Allh is All Sufficient and All-Knowing.

وَلْيَسْتَعْفِفِ الَّذِينَ لَا يَجِدُونَ نِكَاحًا حَتَّى يُغْنِيَهُمْ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ وَالَّذِينَ يَبْتَغُونَ الْكِتَابَ مِمَّا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ فَكَاتِبُوهُمْ إِنْ عَلِمْتُمْ فِيهِمْ خَيْرًا وَآتُوهُم مِّن مَّالِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي آتَاكُمْ وَلَا تُكْرِهُوا فَتَيَاتِكُمْ عَلَى الْبِغَاء إِنْ أَرَدْنَ تَحَصُّنًا لِّتَبْتَغُوا عَرَضَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَن يُكْرِههُّنَّ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ مِن بَعْدِ إِكْرَاهِهِنَّ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

And those who do not find the opportunity to get marry they shall adopt the chastity, until Allh enriches them with HIS Bounty. And among your slaves those who request for writing (to buy their liberty) give them such writing -- if you know that there is any good in them, and give them from that wealth which Allh has given you. And do not force your female slaves into prostitution to gain your worldly benefits whereas they desire to remain chaste, and whoever compels them then after this compulsion (oppression) Allh is Most Forgiving for them (salves females).

وَلَقَدْ أَنزَلْنَا إِلَيْكُمْ آيَاتٍ مُّبَيِّنَاتٍ وَمَثَلًا مِّنَ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلِكُمْ وَمَوْعِظَةً لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ

WE have sent down towards you the Revelation (Ayt) of plain and clear Guidance, and WE have also presented to you the sorrowful examples of those nations who have passed away before you, and WE have given those advises which are for those who fear All
h (are Al-Muttaqn). (R) 10

اللَّهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونِةٍ لَّا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ نُّورٌ عَلَى نُورٍ يَهْدِي اللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَن يَشَاء وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

Allh is the Glory (Nr) of the skies and the earth. (In universe) The example of HIS Glory is as if there would be a lamp in a window, the lamp should be in a chandelier, the chandelier should be a shiny star like a diamond, and that lamp should be lighted with the oil of such blessed tree of olive that would be neither eastern nor western, its oil would inflame itself though, even if no fire touched it, (in this way, as all the means would have been combined to increase) light upon light. Allh guides to HIS Light whom HE wills, HE makes the people to understand with (by citing) examples, Allh Knows everything very well.

فِي بُيُوتٍ أَذِنَ اللَّهُ أَن تُرْفَعَ وَيُذْكَرَ فِيهَا اسْمُهُ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ فِيهَا بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالْآصَالِ

36.            Fee buyootin athina Allahu an turfaAAa wayuthkara feeha ismuhu yusabbihu lahu feeha bialghuduwwi waalasali
(Those who get the guidance from HIS Light) Are found in those houses (Masjids), which Allh has ordered to raise up, and to glorify HIS Name, in these places such people glorify HIM in the mornings and in the evenings,

رِجَالٌ لَّا تُلْهِيهِمْ تِجَارَةٌ وَلَا بَيْعٌ عَن ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَإِقَامِ الصَّلَاةِ وَإِيتَاء الزَّكَاةِ يَخَافُونَ يَوْمًا تَتَقَلَّبُ فِيهِ الْقُلُوبُ وَالْأَبْصَارُ

37.            Rijalun la tulheehim tijaratun wala bayAAun AAan thikri Allahi waiqami alssalati waeetai alzzakati yakhafoona yawman tataqallabu feehi alquloobu waalabsaru
Whom, trade, and sale do not make negligent from the remembrance of Allh and from establishing prayers (AsSalt), and paying the poor-dues (Zakt). They keep fearing (fear) that Day when hearts will be overturned and eyes will be petrified,

لِيَجْزِيَهُمُ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنَ مَا عَمِلُوا وَيَزِيدَهُم مِّن فَضْلِهِ وَاللَّهُ يَرْزُقُ مَن يَشَاء بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ

38.            Liyajziyahumu Allahu ahsana ma AAamiloo wayazeedahum min fadlihi waAllahu yarzuqu man yashao bighayri hisabin
(And they do all this) So that Allh should reward them for their excellent deeds and in addition, bless them more with HIS Blessings, Allh gives without measure to whom HE pleases.

وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَعْمَالُهُمْ كَسَرَابٍ بِقِيعَةٍ يَحْسَبُهُ الظَّمْآنُ مَاء حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءهُ لَمْ يَجِدْهُ شَيْئًا وَوَجَدَ اللَّهَ عِندَهُ فَوَفَّاهُ حِسَابَهُ وَاللَّهُ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ

(In contrary to this) Those who committed infidelity (Kufr), the example of their deeds is like a deception in a desert -- that a thirsty person had thought it to be water, but when he/she gets there then did not find anything, but there he/she found Allh WHO settled his/her account in full, and it do not take long for Allh to settle the accounts.

أَوْ كَظُلُمَاتٍ فِي بَحْرٍ لُّجِّيٍّ يَغْشَاهُ مَوْجٌ مِّن فَوْقِهِ مَوْجٌ مِّن فَوْقِهِ سَحَابٌ ظُلُمَاتٌ بَعْضُهَا فَوْقَ بَعْضٍ إِذَا أَخْرَجَ يَدَهُ لَمْ يَكَدْ يَرَاهَا وَمَن لَّمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّهُ لَهُ نُورًا فَمَا لَهُ مِن نُّورٍ

Or then its example is like as there is darkness in a vast deep sea, there is a wave over it, there is another wave over it and there is a cloud over it, thick darkness is prevailing all over, a person brings out his/her hand and cannot see it. Whom Allh does not give the light then there is no light for him/her. (R) 11

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالطَّيْرُ صَافَّاتٍ كُلٌّ قَدْ عَلِمَ صَلَاتَهُ وَتَسْبِيحَهُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ

41.            Alam tara anna Allaha yusabbihu lahu man fee alssamawati waalardi waalttayru saffatin kullun qad AAalima salatahu watasbeehahu waAllahu AAaleemun bima yafAAaloona
Dont you see that all those who are in the skies and in the earth, and those birds, who are flying around spreading their wings, are glorifying Allh? Each one knows the manner of its prayer (Salt) and the glorification, and whatever they all do, Allh is well aware of it.

وَلِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ الْمَصِيرُ

42.            Walillahi mulku alssamawati waalardi waila Allahi almaseeru
The Sovereignty of the skies and the earth is for Allh Alone and all have to return to HIM.

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُزْجِي سَحَابًا ثُمَّ يُؤَلِّفُ بَيْنَهُ ثُمَّ يَجْعَلُهُ رُكَامًا فَتَرَى الْوَدْقَ يَخْرُجُ مِنْ خِلَالِهِ وَيُنَزِّلُ مِنَ السَّمَاء مِن جِبَالٍ فِيهَا مِن بَرَدٍ فَيُصِيبُ بِهِ مَن يَشَاء وَيَصْرِفُهُ عَن مَّن يَشَاء يَكَادُ سَنَا بَرْقِهِ يَذْهَبُ بِالْأَبْصَارِ

43.            Alam tara anna Allaha yuzjee sahaban thumma yuallifu baynahu thumma yajAAaluhu rukaman fatara alwadqa yakhruju min khilalihi wayunazzilu mina alssamai min jibalin feeha min baradin fayuseebu bihi man yashao wayasrifuhu AAan man yashao yakadu sana barqihi yathhabu bialabsari
Dont you see that Allh drives the clouds gently, then joins its pieces together, then gathers it into a thick cloud, then you see that the raindrops keep coming from its covering? And HE sends down hails from the sky, because of the mountains that are elevated in it, then HE afflicts with them whom HE wills and saves from it -- whom HE wills. The brightness of its lighting dazzles the sight.

يُقَلِّبُ اللَّهُ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَعِبْرَةً لِّأُوْلِي الْأَبْصَارِ

44.            Yuqallibu Allahu allayla waalnnahara inna fee thalika laAAibratan liolee alabsari
Allh is changing the night and the day. There is a lesson in it for those who have insight.

وَاللَّهُ خَلَقَ كُلَّ دَابَّةٍ مِن مَّاء فَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِي عَلَى بَطْنِهِ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِي عَلَى رِجْلَيْنِ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِي عَلَى أَرْبَعٍ يَخْلُقُ اللَّهُ مَا يَشَاء إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

45.            WaAllahu khalaqa kulla dabbatin min main faminhum man yamshee AAala batnihi waminhum man yamshee AAala rijlayni waminhum man yamshee AAala arbaAAin yakhluqu Allahu ma yashao inna Allaha AAala kulli shayin qadeerun
And Allh has created every living being from the same kind of water. Some is crawling on the belly, a few is walking on two legs, and some is walking on four legs. (Allh, subhaana wa taaala) Creates whatever HE wills HE has the ability to do everything.

لَقَدْ أَنزَلْنَا آيَاتٍ مُّبَيِّنَاتٍ وَاللَّهُ يَهْدِي مَن يَشَاء إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

46.            Laqad anzalna ayatin mubayyinatin waAllahu yahdee man yashao ila siratin mustaqeemin
WE have sent down the Revelation that tells the clear and plain Truth, however Allh guides to the Straight Path whom HE wills.

وَيَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ وَبِالرَّسُولِ وَأَطَعْنَا ثُمَّ يَتَوَلَّى فَرِيقٌ مِّنْهُم مِّن بَعْدِ ذَلِكَ وَمَا أُوْلَئِكَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ

47.            Wayaqooloona amanna biAllahi wabialrrasooli waataAAna thumma yatawalla fareequn minhum min baAAdi thalika wama olaika bialmumineena
These people say: "We have brought Faith in Allh and in the Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and we have submitted, but after that one group among them turns away (from obedience). Such people are not believers at all.

وَإِذَا دُعُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ لِيَحْكُمَ بَيْنَهُمْ إِذَا فَرِيقٌ مِّنْهُم مُّعْرِضُونَ

48.            Waitha duAAoo ila Allahi warasoolihi liyahkuma baynahum itha fareequn minhum muAAridoona
When they are called toward Allh and HIS Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) so that Rasool should decide their mutual affairs then a group among them turns away.

وَإِن يَكُن لَّهُمُ الْحَقُّ يَأْتُوا إِلَيْهِ مُذْعِنِينَ

49.            Wain yakun lahumu alhaqqu yatoo ilayhi muthAAineena
Whereas if the truth is in their favor then they come to Rasool in all obedience.

أَفِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ أَمِ ارْتَابُوا أَمْ يَخَافُونَ أَن يَحِيفَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَرَسُولُهُ بَلْ أُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ

50.            Afee quloobihim maradun ami irtaboo am yakhafoona an yaheefa Allahu AAalayhim warasooluhu bal olaika humu alththalimoona
Are their hearts infected with a disease (of hypocrisy)? Or are they in doubt? Or do they fear that Allh and HIS Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) will be unjust to them? The fact is that these people themselves are cruel (Zlimn). (R) 12

إِنَّمَا كَانَ قَوْلَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذَا دُعُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ لِيَحْكُمَ بَيْنَهُمْ أَن يَقُولُوا سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا وَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ

51.            Innama kana qawla almumineena itha duAAoo ila Allahi warasoolihi liyahkuma baynahum an yaqooloo samiAAna waataAAna waolaika humu almuflihoona
It is for those who brought Faith that when they are called toward Allh and HIS Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) so that Rasool should be the judge for their matters, they should say we have heard and we obeyed. Such people are going to attain the prosperity,

وَمَن يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَخْشَ اللَّهَ وَيَتَّقْهِ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَائِزُونَ

52.            Waman yutiAAi Allaha warasoolahu wayakhsha Allaha wayattaqhi faolaika humu alfaizoona
And only those are successful who obey Allh and HIS Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and fear Allh and abstain from HIS disobedience.

وَأَقْسَمُوا بِاللَّهِ جَهْدَ أَيْمَانِهِمْ لَئِنْ أَمَرْتَهُمْ لَيَخْرُجُنَّ قُل لَّا تُقْسِمُوا طَاعَةٌ مَّعْرُوفَةٌ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

53.            Waaqsamoo biAllahi jahda aymanihim lain amartahum layakhrujunna qul la tuqsimoo taAAatun maAAroofatun inna Allaha khabeerun bima taAAmaloona
These (hypocrites) solemnly swear by Allh and say, If you command us then we will come out from our homes. Tell them: "Do not swear, your obedience is well known, Allh is not unaware of your misdeeds.

قُلْ أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ فَإِن تَوَلَّوا فَإِنَّمَا عَلَيْهِ مَا حُمِّلَ وَعَلَيْكُم مَّا حُمِّلْتُمْ وَإِن تُطِيعُوهُ تَهْتَدُوا وَمَا عَلَى الرَّسُولِ إِلَّا الْبَلَاغُ الْمُبِينُ

54.            Qul ateeAAoo Allaha waateeAAoo alrrasoola fain tawallaw fainnama AAalayhi ma hummila waAAalaykum ma hummiltum wain tuteeAAoohu tahtadoo wama AAala alrrasooli illa albalaghu almubeena
Say: "Be obedient to Allh and obey the Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). But if you turn away then you should know it very well that the Rasool is only responsible for the duty entrusted to him and you are responsible for the duty entrusted to you. If you will obey him then you will get the right guidance -- otherwise the only responsibility of Rasool is to convey the message clearly."

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُم فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ

55.            WaAAada Allahu allatheena amanoo minkum waAAamiloo alssalihati layastakhlifannahum fee alardi kama istakhlafa allatheena min qablihim walayumakkinanna lahum deenahumu allathee irtada lahum walayubaddilannahum min baAAdi khawfihim amnan yaAAbudoonanee la yushrikoona bee shayan waman kafara baAAda thalika faolaika humu alfasiqoona
Allh has promised to those people among you who bring Faith and do righteous deeds, that HE will make them caliph (successor) in the earth the same way as HE made those people who have passed before them, HE will establish their Deen (Islam -- the way of life) for them on firm basis, which Allh has chosen for them, and will change their (current) condition of fear with peace, therefore they shall serve ME and should not associate anyone with ME. And whoever commits infidelity (Kufr) after this then such people are the disobedient (Fsiqn).

وَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ

56.            Waaqeemoo alssalata waatoo alzzakata waateeAAoo alrrasoola laAAallakum turhamoona
Establish prayer (AsSalt), pay the poor-dues (Zakt), and obey the Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), it is hoped that mercy will be done to you.

لَا تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مُعْجِزِينَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَأْوَاهُمُ النَّارُ وَلَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ

57.            La tahsabanna allatheena kafaroo muAAjizeena fee alardi wamawahumu alnnaru walabisa almaseeru
Those people who are committing infidelity -- (you) should not be in misconception about them that they would frustrate Allh in the land. Their abode is Hell and it is the worst destination. (R) 13

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لِيَسْتَأْذِنكُمُ الَّذِينَ مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ لَمْ يَبْلُغُوا الْحُلُمَ مِنكُمْ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ مِن قَبْلِ صَلَاةِ الْفَجْرِ وَحِينَ تَضَعُونَ ثِيَابَكُم مِّنَ الظَّهِيرَةِ وَمِن بَعْدِ صَلَاةِ الْعِشَاء ثَلَاثُ عَوْرَاتٍ لَّكُمْ لَيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَلَا عَلَيْهِمْ جُنَاحٌ بَعْدَهُنَّ طَوَّافُونَ عَلَيْكُم بَعْضُكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ

O people who have brought Faith, it is compulsory that your slaves-girls, slaves and your those children who have not reach the age of puberty, should seek your permission on three occasions when they come to meet you -- before the dawn prayer (Fajr prayer), and at noon when you put off your clothes, and after the late-night ('Ish') prayer. These three times are of your privacy. Except these (times) if they come without seeking permission then there is no sin on you or on them, you have to come to each other over and again. This way Allh makes HIS Command (Ayt) clear for you, and HE is All Knowing All Wise.

وَإِذَا بَلَغَ الْأَطْفَالُ مِنكُمُ الْحُلُمَ فَلْيَسْتَأْذِنُوا كَمَا اسْتَأْذَنَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ

59.            Waitha balagha alatfalu minkumu alhuluma falyastathinoo kama istathana allatheena min qablihim kathalika yubayyinu Allahu lakum ayatihi waAllahu AAaleemun hakeemun
And when your children reach the age of puberty (teenage years) then they should come after seeking the permission as their elders have been seeking permission, in this way Allh makes HIS Revelation (Ayt) clear to you and HE is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

وَالْقَوَاعِدُ مِنَ النِّسَاء اللَّاتِي لَا يَرْجُونَ نِكَاحًا فَلَيْسَ عَلَيْهِنَّ جُنَاحٌ أَن يَضَعْنَ ثِيَابَهُنَّ غَيْرَ مُتَبَرِّجَاتٍ بِزِينَةٍ وَأَن يَسْتَعْفِفْنَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُنَّ وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

And those women who have passed their young (child-bearing) age, have no interest in getting married, if they take away their shawls then there is no sin on them, provided they are not to show their adornment. However, they should also adopt modesty it is better for them, and Allh is All-Hearer and All-Knower.

لَيْسَ عَلَى الْأَعْمَى حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَى الْأَعْرَجِ حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَى الْمَرِيضِ حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَى أَنفُسِكُمْ أَن تَأْكُلُوا مِن بُيُوتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ آبَائِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أُمَّهَاتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ إِخْوَانِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أَخَوَاتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أَعْمَامِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ عَمَّاتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أَخْوَالِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ خَالَاتِكُمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكْتُم مَّفَاتِحَهُ أَوْ صَدِيقِكُمْ لَيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ جُنَاحٌ أَن تَأْكُلُوا جَمِيعًا أَوْ أَشْتَاتًا فَإِذَا دَخَلْتُم بُيُوتًا فَسَلِّمُوا عَلَى أَنفُسِكُمْ تَحِيَّةً مِّنْ عِندِ اللَّهِ مُبَارَكَةً طَيِّبَةً كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُون

There is no harm if any blind, or lame, or any sick (eats from any ones home) and there is no harm for you if you eat from your homes, or from the homes of your fathers, grand fathers, or from the houses of your mothers, grand mothers, or from the houses of your brothers, or from the houses of your sisters, or from the houses of your father's brothers, or from the houses of your father's sisters, or from the houses of your mother's brothers, or from the houses of your mother's sisters, or from those houses whose keys are given to you, or from the houses of your friends. There is no harm in it if you eat together or separately -- however when you enter the house you should greet your people, the greeting of peace, assigned from Allh a blessed and pure. This way Allh makes Revelation (Ayt) clear to you, it is hoped that you use your commonsense. (R) 14

إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَإِذَا كَانُوا مَعَهُ عَلَى أَمْرٍ جَامِعٍ لَمْ يَذْهَبُوا حَتَّى يَسْتَأْذِنُوهُ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَأْذِنُونَكَ أُوْلَئِكَ الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ فَإِذَا اسْتَأْذَنُوكَ لِبَعْضِ شَأْنِهِمْ فَأْذَن لِّمَن شِئْتَ مِنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمُ اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

In fact, the believers are those who embrace Allh and HIS Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) from their hearts and when they are with Rasool for some common cause, they should not leave without seeking his permission. O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), those people who seek your permission they are the one who believe in Allh and HIS Rasool, so when they ask your permission for their own affairs then you may give permission to whomever you like and pray to Allh for their forgiveness, truly, Allh is Forgiving and Most Loving.

لَا تَجْعَلُوا دُعَاء الرَّسُولِ بَيْنَكُمْ كَدُعَاء بَعْضِكُم بَعْضًا قَدْ يَعْلَمُ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ يَتَسَلَّلُونَ مِنكُمْ لِوَاذًا فَلْيَحْذَرِ الَّذِينَ يُخَالِفُونَ عَنْ أَمْرِهِ أَن تُصِيبَهُمْ فِتْنَةٌ أَوْ يُصِيبَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

O Muslims do not consider among you the calling of the Rasool as the calling of one another among you. Allh knows those people among you very well who slip away quietly under the shelter of others. Those who disobey the command of Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) should be afraid that they should not be seized by any mischief (Fitnah) or a painful torment should not come upon them.

أَلَا إِنَّ لِلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ قَدْ يَعْلَمُ مَا أَنتُمْ عَلَيْهِ وَيَوْمَ يُرْجَعُونَ إِلَيْهِ فَيُنَبِّئُهُم بِمَا عَمِلُوا وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

أَوْ يُلْقَى إِلَيْهِ كَنزٌ أَوْ تَكُونُ لَهُ جَنَّةٌ يَأْكُلُ مِنْهَا وَقَالَ الظَّالِمُونَ إِن تَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا رَجُلًا مَّسْحُورًا

8.                Aw yulqa ilayhi kanzun aw takoonu lahu jannatun yakulu minha waqala alththalimoona in tattabiAAoona illa rajulan mashooran
"Or at least some treasure would have been sent down for him, or either he should have some garden from that he could have gotten provisions of life. And these cruel (Zlimn) say: "You people are following an enchanted person.

انظُرْ كَيْفَ ضَرَبُوا لَكَ الْأَمْثَالَ فَضَلُّوا فَلَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ سَبِيلًا

9.               Onthur kayfa daraboo laka alamthala fadalloo fala yastateeAAoona sabeelan
Look! What strange arguments these people are bringing before you, they are gone astray so they cannot think anything of sense. (R) 16

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي إِن شَاء جَعَلَ لَكَ خَيْرًا مِّن ذَلِكَ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ وَيَجْعَل لَّكَ قُصُورًا

10.            Tabaraka allathee in shaa jaAAala laka khayran min thalika jannatin tajree min tahtiha alanharu wayajAAal laka qusooran
Highly blessed is HE -- WHO if (HE) wants can give you a lot more than what these people are suggesting for you (not just one) many gardens underneath which canals flow and huge palaces.

بَلْ كَذَّبُوا بِالسَّاعَةِ وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِمَن كَذَّبَ بِالسَّاعَةِ سَعِيرًا

11.            Bal kaththaboo bialssaAAati waaAAtadna liman kaththaba bialssaAAati saAAeeran
The truth is that these people have denied The Hour
--and the one who denies that Hour for him/her WE have prepared a flaming Fire.

إِذَا رَأَتْهُم مِّن مَّكَانٍ بَعِيدٍ سَمِعُوا لَهَا تَغَيُّظًا وَزَفِيرًا

12.            Itha raathum min makanin baAAeedin samiAAoo laha taghayyuthan wazafeeran
When it (Hell) will see them from a far away -- then they will hear the sound of its raging and roaring.

وَإِذَا أُلْقُوا مِنْهَا مَكَانًا ضَيِّقًا مُقَرَّنِينَ دَعَوْا هُنَالِكَ ثُبُورًا

13.            Waitha olqoo minha makanan dayyiqan muqarraneena daAAaw hunalika thubooran
And when they will be chained together and thrown into a narrow place of it then they will begin to call for their death,

لَا تَدْعُوا الْيَوْمَ ثُبُورًا وَاحِدًا وَادْعُوا ثُبُورًا كَثِيرًا

14.            La tadAAoo alyawma thubooran wahidan waodAAoo thubooran katheeran
(At that time it will be said to them) Today not just one death -- but call for many deaths.

قُلْ أَذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ أَمْ جَنَّةُ الْخُلْدِ الَّتِي وُعِدَ الْمُتَّقُونَ كَانَتْ لَهُمْ جَزَاء وَمَصِيرًا

15.            Qul athalika khayrun am jannatu alkhuldi allatee wuAAida almuttaqoona kanat lahum jazaan wamaseeran
Ask them: "Is this end better or the eternal
Paradise which has been promised to the humble and pious people (Muttaqn) that will be the reward of their righteous deeds and a final destination of their journey,

لَهُمْ فِيهَا مَا يَشَاؤُونَ خَالِدِينَ كَانَ عَلَى رَبِّكَ وَعْدًا مَسْؤُولًا

16.            Lahum feeha ma yashaoona khalideena kana AAala rabbika waAAdan masoolan
Where their every desire will be fulfilled, and where they will stay forever, it is a promise binding upon your Rbb that must be fulfilled.

وَيَوْمَ يَحْشُرُهُمْ وَمَا يَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ فَيَقُولُ أَأَنتُمْ أَضْلَلْتُمْ عِبَادِي هَؤُلَاء أَمْ هُمْ ضَلُّوا السَّبِيلَ

17.           Wayawma yahshuruhum wama yaAAbudoona min dooni Allahi fayaqoolu aantum adlaltum AAibadee haolai am hum dalloo alssabeela
And on that Day when (your Rbb) will gather these people together and will also call their (those) deities whom they are serving today except Allh then HE will ask them: "Did you mislead MY these servants? Or they themselves went astray from the Straight Path?"

قَالُوا سُبْحَانَكَ مَا كَانَ يَنبَغِي لَنَا أَن نَّتَّخِذَ مِن دُونِكَ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاء وَلَكِن مَّتَّعْتَهُمْ وَآبَاءهُمْ حَتَّى نَسُوا الذِّكْرَ وَكَانُوا قَوْمًا بُورًا

18.            Qaloo subhanaka ma kana yanbaghee lana an nattakhitha min doonika min awliyaa walakin mattaAAtahum waabaahum hatta nasoo alththikra wakanoo qawman booran
They will say: "Praise be to YOU, it was not for us to take any protector (Auliy) except YOU. But YOU gave them and to their forefathers plentiful provisions of life -- so that they forgot the lesson and became miserable.

فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوكُم بِمَا تَقُولُونَ فَمَا تَسْتَطِيعُونَ صَرْفًا وَلَا نَصْرًا وَمَن يَظْلِم مِّنكُمْ نُذِقْهُ عَذَابًا كَبِيرًا

19.            Faqad kaththabookum bima taqooloona fama tastateeAAoona sarfan wala nasran waman yathlim minkum nuthiqhu AAathaban kabeeran
Thus just like this they (your deities) will deny your those things which you are saying today, then you will neither be able to repel your misery (punishment), nor will get any help from anyplace, and whoever among you does wrong, WE shall make him/her taste a severe torment.

وَما أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَ مِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ إِلَّا إِنَّهُمْ لَيَأْكُلُونَ الطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشُونَ فِي الْأَسْوَاقِ وَجَعَلْنَا بَعْضَكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ فِتْنَةً أَتَصْبِرُونَ وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ بَصِيرًا

20.            Wama arsalna qablaka mina almursaleena illa innahum layakuloona alttaAAama wayamshoona fee alaswaqi wajaAAalna baAAdakum libaAAdin fitnatan atasbiroona wakana rabbuka baseeran
O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), the Rasools whom WE had sent before you they all used to eat food and they were the people who used to walk in the market. In fact, WE have made you people a trial for one and another. Do you observe patience? Your Rbb watches everything. (R) 17
