Chapter 2

 

Total Verses: 286

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Bismi Allahi alrrahmani alrraheemi

(I) Begin with the Name of Allh WHO is Most Loving and Most Merciful

سَيَقُولُ السُّفَهَاء مِنَ النَّاسِ مَا وَلاَّهُمْ عَن قِبْلَتِهِمُ الَّتِي كَانُواْ عَلَيْهَا قُل لِّلّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ

وَالْمَغْرِبُ يَهْدِي مَن يَشَاء إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

142.          Sayaqoolu alssufahao mina alnnasi ma wallahum AAan qiblatihimu allatee kanoo AAalayha qul lillahi almashriqu waalmaghribu yahdee man yashao ila siratin mustaqeemin
The senseless people will definitely say: "What happened to them that the direction (Qiblah) they used to face in their prayers, they suddenly turned away from it?" O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) tell them: "The East and the West -- all belong to Allh. Whoever Allh Wants, Guides to the Straight Path."

وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا لِّتَكُونُواْ شُهَدَاء عَلَى النَّاسِ وَيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ عَلَيْكُمْ شَهِيدًا وَمَا جَعَلْنَا الْقِبْلَةَ الَّتِي كُنتَ عَلَيْهَا إِلاَّ لِنَعْلَمَ مَن يَتَّبِعُ الرَّسُولَ مِمَّن يَنقَلِبُ عَلَى عَقِبَيْهِ وَإِن كَانَتْ لَكَبِيرَةً إِلاَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ هَدَى اللّهُ وَمَا كَانَ اللّهُ لِيُضِيعَ إِيمَانَكُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ بِالنَّاسِ لَرَؤُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ

143.          Wakathalika jaAAalnakum ommatan wasatan litakoonoo shuhadaa AAala alnnasi wayakoona alrrasoolu AAalaykum shaheedan wama jaAAalna alqiblata allatee kunta AAalayha illa linaAAlama man yattabiAAu alrrasoola mimman yanqalibu AAala AAaqibayhi wain kanat lakabeeratan illa AAala allatheena hada Allahu wama kana Allahu liyudeeAAa eemanakum inna Allaha bialnnasi laraoofun raheemun
And in the same way WE have made you Muslims an "Ummah-e-Wasat" (truthful and the best nation of all) so that you be witnesses over the people of the world and the Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) be a witness over you. The direction, which you used to face before, WE made that a prayer direction (Qiblah) only to see that who obey the Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and who disobey. This thing was very hard indeed, but it did not prove hard for those people who were blessed with the guidance from Allh. Allh will never waste your Faith. Be certain that HE is most Affectionate and Merciful for mankind.

قَدْ نَرَى تَقَلُّبَ وَجْهِكَ فِي السَّمَاء فَلَنُوَلِّيَنَّكَ قِبْلَةً تَرْضَاهَا فَوَلِّ وَجْهَكَ شَطْرَالْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَحَيْثُ مَا كُنتُمْ فَوَلُّواْ وُجُوِهَكُمْ شَطْرَهُ وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ أُوْتُواْ الْكِتَابَ لَيَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ وَمَا اللّهُ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا يَعْمَلُونَ

144.          Qad nara taqalluba wajhika fee alssamai falanuwalliyannaka qiblatan tardaha fawalli wajhaka shatra almasjidi alharami wahaythu ma kuntum fawalloo wujoohakum shatrahu wainna allatheena ootoo alkitaba layaAAlamoona annahu alhaqqu min rabbihim wama Allahu bighafilin AAamma yaAAmaloona
O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), WE are seeing the turning of your face towards the sky over and over again. Now, WE turn you towards the same direction (Qiblah) which you liked. Turn (your) face towards the Masjid-al-Harm (Ka'bah at Makkah). Now wherever you are, offer your prayer facing towards it (Masjid-al-Harm). These people whom the Scripture was given, know it very well that this (Change of the Qiblah) order is from their Rbb and is Truth, but even then whatever they are doing, Allh is not unaware of it.

وَلَئِنْ أَتَيْتَ الَّذِينَ أُوْتُواْ الْكِتَابَ بِكُلِّ آيَةٍ مَّا تَبِعُواْ قِبْلَتَكَ وَمَا أَنتَ بِتَابِعٍ قِبْلَتَهُمْ وَمَا بَعْضُهُم بِتَابِعٍ قِبْلَةَ بَعْضٍ وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءهُم مِّن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ إِنَّكَ إِذَاً لَّمِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

145.           Walain atayta allatheena ootoo alkitaba bikulli ayatin ma tabiAAoo qiblataka wama anta bitabiAAin qiblatahum wama baAAduhum bitabiAAin qiblata baAAdin walaini ittabaAAta ahwaahum min baAAdi ma jaaka mina alAAilmi innaka ithan lamina alththalimeena
Even if you (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) bring any sign (Ayt) to the people of the Scripture, it is not possible that they start following your direction (Qiblah), and nor it is possible for you to follow their direction (Qiblah), and among them none of the group is ready to follow other's Qiblah (direction), and if you follow their desires after this knowledge, which has been revealed to you, then certainly you will be among the wrong-doers (Zlimn).

الَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يَعْرِفُونَهُ كَمَا يَعْرِفُونَ أَبْنَاءهُمْ وَإِنَّ فَرِيقاً مِّنْهُمْ لَيَكْتُمُونَ الْحَقَّ

وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ

146.          Allatheena ataynahumu alkitaba yaAArifoonahu kama yaAArifoona abnaahum wainna fareeqan minhum layaktumoona alhaqqa wahum yaAAlamoona
Those to whom WE have given the Scripture, they recognize this place (which has been made Qiblah) as they recognize their own children, but one group among them is concealing the truth intentionally.

الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّكَ فَلاَ تَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْمُمْتَرِينَ

147.          Alhaqqu min rabbika fala takoonanna mina almumtareena
This is the real truth from your Rbb; therefore you should not be in any doubt about this at all. (R) 1

وَلِكُلٍّ وِجْهَةٌ هُوَ مُوَلِّيهَا فَاسْتَبِقُواْ الْخَيْرَاتِ أَيْنَ مَا تَكُونُواْ يَأْتِ بِكُمُ اللّهُ جَمِيعًا إِنَّ اللّهَ

عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

148.           Walikullin wijhatun huwa muwalleeha faistabiqoo alkhayrati aynama takoonoo yati bikumu Allahu jameeAAan inna Allaha AAala kulli shayin qadeerun
Everyone has one direction towards which one turns. So you should advance towards the good deeds. Wherever you will be, Allh will find you. Nothing is away from HIS Power.

وَمِنْ حَيْثُ خَرَجْتَ فَوَلِّ وَجْهَكَ شَطْرَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَإِنَّهُ لَلْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّكَ وَمَا اللّهُ

بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ

149.           Wamin haythu kharajta fawalli wajhaka shatra almasjidi alharami wainnahu lalhaqqu min rabbika wama Allahu bighafilin AAamma taAAmaloona
From whatever place you pass through, right from there turn your face (at the time of prayer) towards the direction of Masjid-al-Harm (Ka'bah at Makkah), because this is indeed the true decision of your Rbb and Allh is not unaware of your deeds.

 

وَمِنْ حَيْثُ خَرَجْتَ فَوَلِّ وَجْهَكَ شَطْرَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَحَيْثُ مَا كُنتُمْ فَوَلُّواْ وُجُوهَكُمْ شَطْرَهُ لِئَلاَّ يَكُونَ لِلنَّاسِ عَلَيْكُمْ حُجَّةٌ إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مِنْهُمْ فَلاَ تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِي وَلأُتِمَّ نِعْمَتِي عَلَيْكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ

150.          Wamin haythu kharajta fawalli wajhaka shatra almasjidi alharami wahaythu ma kuntum fawalloo wujoohakum shatrahu lialla yakoona lilnnasi AAalaykum hujjatun illa allatheena thalamoo minhum fala takhshawhum waikhshawnee waliotimma niAAmatee AAalaykum walaAAallakum tahtadoona
And from wherever you pass by, (always) turn your face towards the direction of Al-Masjid-al-Harm (Ka'bah at Makkah), and wherever you are, offer your prayer turning your face towards it -- so that the people may have no excuse against you-- yes those who are cruel among them they will never stop talking. So you do not fear them, but fear ME-- and for this reason that I may complete MY Blessing on you and with the hope that by following MY command you will find the path of success in the same way

كَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا فِيكُمْ رَسُولاً مِّنكُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِنَا وَيُزَكِّيكُمْ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ

وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُواْ تَعْلَمُونَ

151.          Kama arsalna feekum rasoolan minkum yatloo AAalaykum ayatina wayuzakkeekum wayuAAallimukumu alkitaba waalhikmata wayuAAallimukum ma lam takoonoo taAAlamoona
As (you benefited from it that) WE sent among you a Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) of your own, who recites OUR Verses (Al-Qur'n) to you, purifies your lives, teaches you the Book (Al-Qur'n) and the Wisdom (Hikmah), and teaches you that which you did not know.

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُواْ لِي وَلاَ تَكْفُرُونِ

152.          Faothkuroonee athkurkum waoshkuroo lee wala takfurooni
Therefore you remember ME; I will remember you, and be grateful to ME, do not deny MY Blessings. (R) 2

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَعِينُواْ بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ إِنَّ اللّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ

153.          Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo istaAAeenoo bialssabri waalssalati inna Allaha maAAa alssabireena
O people who have brought Faith! seek help with patience and prayer (As-Salt). Allh is with those who are patient (As-Sbirin).

 

وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبيلِ اللّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاء وَلَكِن لاَّ تَشْعُرُونَ

154.          Wala taqooloo liman yuqtalu fee sabeeli Allahi amwatun bal ahyaon walakin la tashAAuroona
And those people who are killed in the Path of Allh do not call them dead, such people are in fact alive, but you do not have sense of their lives.

وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُمْ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنَ الْخَوفْ وَالْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ الأَمَوَالِ وَالأنفُسِ وَالثَّمَرَاتِ

وَبَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ

155.          Walanabluwannakum bishayin mina alkhawfi waaljooAAi wanaqsin mina alamwali waalanfusi waalththamarati wabashshiri alssabireena
And WE certainly will test you by putting you in fear and danger, hunger, loss of wealth and lives, and loss of earnings. In these circumstances those who remain patient,

الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُم مُّصِيبَةٌ قَالُواْ إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ

156.          Allatheena itha asabathum museebatun qaloo inna lillahi wainna ilayhi rajiAAoona
And when any misery comes to them, then they say that "We belong to Allh Alone and we have to return to Allh", give them glad tidings.

أُولَـئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ صَلَوَاتٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَأُولَـئِكَ هُمُ الْمُهْتَدُونَ

157.          Olaika AAalayhim salawatun min rabbihim warahmatun waolaika humu almuhtadoona
There will be great blessings (Salawt) on them from their Rbb; HIS kindness will be all over them and such people are rightly guided.

إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِن شَعَآئِرِ اللّهِ فَمَنْ حَجَّ الْبَيْتَ أَوِ اعْتَمَرَ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِ

أَن يَطَّوَّفَ بِهِمَا وَمَن تَطَوَّعَ خَيْرًا فَإِنَّ اللّهَ شَاكِرٌ عَلِيمٌ

158.          Inna alssafa waalmarwata min shaAAairi Allahi faman hajja albayta awi iAAtamara fala junaha AAalayhi an yattawwafa bihima waman tatawwaAAa khayran fainna Allaha shakirun AAaleemun
Certainly As-Saf and Al-Marwah (names of mountains in Makkah) are from among the Symbols of Allh. So whoever performs Hajj or 'Umrah (pilgrimage) to the House of Allh, (the Ka'bah at Makkah), it is not a sin for him/her to run between both of these mountains and whoever voluntarily does good deeds, Allh Knows about it and HE is appreciator of it.

إِنَّالَّذِ ينَيَكْتُمُونَمَ اأَنزَلْنَامِنَا لْبَيِّنَاتِوَال ْهُدَىمِنبَعْدِم َابَيَّنَّاهُلِل نَّاسِفِي الْكِتَابِ أُولَـئِكَ يَلعَنُهُمُ اللّهُ وَيَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّاعِنُونَ

159.           Inna allatheena yaktumoona ma anzalna mina albayyinati waalhuda min baAAdi ma bayyannahu lilnnasi fee alkitabi olaika yalAAanuhumu Allahu wayalAAanuhumu allaAAinoona
Those people, who conceal OUR revelation of clear teachings and guidance, although WE have described it in OUR Book for the guidance of all mankind, be certain that Allh Curses them and those who send curse also send their curses to them.

إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ تَابُواْ وَأَصْلَحُواْ وَبَيَّنُواْ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ أَتُوبُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَنَا التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ

160.          Illa allatheena taboo waaslahoo wabayyanoo faolaika atoobu AAalayhim waana alttawwabu alrraheemu
Although those who stop from this course of action and correct their misdeeds and whatever they used to conceal start declaring it, I (Allh, subhaana wa ta'aala) will forgive them and I AM Most Forgiving and Most Merciful.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَمَاتُوا وَهُمْ كُفَّارٌ أُولَئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ لَعْنَةُ اللّهِ وَالْمَلآئِكَةِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ

161.           Inna allatheena kafaroo wamatoo wahum kuffarun olaika AAalayhim laAAnatu Allahi waalmalaikati waalnnasi ajmaAAeena
Those people who have adopted the way of infidelity (Kufr) and die in the state of infidelity (Kufr), there is a Curse of Allh, and the angels, and the entire mankind on them.

خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا لاَ يُخَفَّفُ عَنْهُمُ الْعَذَابُ وَلاَ هُمْ يُنظَرُونَ

162.           Khalideena feeha la yukhaffafu AAanhumu alAAathabu wala hum yuntharoona
They will remain in the state of this curse forever, neither their punishment will be reduced nor any other relief will be given to them.

وَإِلَـهُكُمْ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ لاَّ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الرَّحْمَنُ الرَّحِيمُ

163.           Wailahukum ilahun wahidun la ilaha illa huwa alrrahmanu alrraheemu
Your Allh is only One Allh (L ilha illa Huwa), there is no deity (ilha) expect HIM the Most Loving the Most Merciful. (R) 3

إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلاَفِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَالْفُلْكِ الَّتِي تَجْرِي فِي الْبَحْرِ بِمَا يَنفَعُ النَّاسَ وَمَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ مِنَ السَّمَاء مِن مَّاء فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الأرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَبَثَّ فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ دَآبَّةٍ وَتَصْرِيفِ الرِّيَاحِ وَالسَّحَابِ الْمُسَخِّرِ بَيْنَ السَّمَاء وَالأَرْضِ لآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ

164.           Inna fee khalqi alssamawati waalardi waikhtilafi allayli waalnnahari waalfulki allatee tajree fee albahri bima yanfaAAu alnnasa wama anzala Allahu mina alssamai min main faahya bihi alarda baAAda mawtiha wabaththa feeha min kulli dabbatin watasreefi alrriyahi waalssahabi almusakhkhari bayna alssamai waalardi laayatin liqawmin yaAAqiloona
(To recognize this truth if any sign is required then) Those people who have sense there are many signs (Ayt) for them in the creation of the skies and the earth, in the switching back and forth of the night and the day, in those boats which sail through the river and the sea carrying the profitable things for the mankind, the rain water which Allh sends down from above then from it gives life to the dead earth and (because of HIS this arrangement) spread all kinds of living creatures in the earth, in the movement of air, and in those clouds which are kept in obedience between the sky and the earth.

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَتَّخِذُ مِن دُونِ اللّهِ أَندَاداً يُحِبُّونَهُمْ كَحُبِّ اللّهِ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَشَدُّ حُبًّا لِّلّهِ وَلَوْ يَرَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ إِذْ يَرَوْنَ الْعَذَابَ أَنَّ الْقُوَّةَ لِلّهِ جَمِيعاً وَأَنَّ اللّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعَذَابِ

165.          Wamina alnnasi man yattakhithu min dooni Allahi andadan yuhibboonahum kahubbi Allahi waallatheena amanoo ashaddu hubban lillahi walaw yara allatheena thalamoo ith yarawna alAAathaba anna alquwwata lillahi jameeAAan waanna Allaha shadeedu alAAathabi
(But in spite of all the clear signs on the Oneness of Allh, subhaana wa ta'aala) There are a few people who take others equal and rivals to Allh and they love them as they should love Allh-- whereas those who have Faith, love Allh more than anything else-- Would that these violators should realize it today -- what they are going to realize after seeing the punishment in front of them, that all Powers and Authorities belong to Allh and that Allh is also Severe in punishment.

إِذْ تَبَرَّأَ الَّذِينَ اتُّبِعُواْ مِنَ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُواْ وَرَأَوُاْ الْعَذَابَ وَتَقَطَّعَتْ بِهِمُ الأَسْبَابُ

166.          Ith tabarraa allatheena ittubiAAoo mina allatheena ittabaAAoo waraawoo alAAathaba wataqattaAAat bihimu alasbabu
When HE will give punishment at that time the situation will be that those same leaders and guides, whom they followed in the world, will show no concern to their followers, but will get punishment and all their bondage and relations will be disconnected.

وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُواْ لَوْ أَنَّ لَنَا كَرَّةً فَنَتَبَرَّأَ مِنْهُمْ كَمَا تَبَرَّؤُواْ مِنَّا كَذَلِكَ يُرِيهِمُ اللّهُ

أَعْمَالَهُمْ حَسَرَاتٍ عَلَيْهِمْ وَمَا هُم بِخَارِجِينَ مِنَ النَّارِ

167.          Waqala allatheena ittabaAAoo law anna lana karratan fanatabarraa minhum kama tabarraoo minna kathalika yureehimu Allahu aAAmalahum hasaratin AAalayhim wama hum bikharijeena mina alnnari
And those people, who used to follow them in this world, will say that -- would that we have been given another chance then as they are disowning us today, we would disown them. Thus Allh will bring before them their those deeds which they have been doing in the world, in such way that they will squeeze their hands in regret and sorrow but (they) will not find way out from the Fire. (R) 4

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ كُلُواْ مِمَّا فِي الأَرْضِ حَلاَلاً طَيِّباً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ

إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ

168.          Ya ayyuha alnnasu kuloo mimma fee alardi halalan tayyiban wala tattabiAAoo khutuwati alshshaytani innahu lakum AAaduwwun mubeenun
O mankind! Eat that which is lawful and pure on the earth and do not follow the footsteps of Satan (Shaitn). He is your open enemy,

إِنَّمَا يَأْمُرُكُمْ بِالسُّوءِ وَالْفَحْشَاء وَأَن تَقُولُواْ عَلَى اللّهِ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

169.          Innama yamurukum bialssooi waalfahshai waan taqooloo AAala Allahi ma la taAAlamoona
(Satan) Commands you to commit an evil and immorality (Fahsh) and teaches you to say those things associating with the name of Allh about which you do not have any knowledge (that Allh, subhaana wa ta'aala, has said so).

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ اتَّبِعُوا مَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ قَالُواْ بَلْ نَتَّبِعُ مَا أَلْفَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ آبَاءنَا أَوَلَوْ كَانَ

آبَاؤُهُمْ لاَ يَعْقِلُونَ شَيْئاً وَلاَ يَهْتَدُونَ

170.          Waitha qeela lahumu ittabiAAoo ma anzala Allahu qaloo bal nattabiAAu ma alfayna AAalayhi abaana awa law kana abaohum la yaAAqiloona shayan wala yahtadoona
When it is said to them that follow the commandments that Allh has sent down, then they reply that we shall follow only that path on which we have found our forefathers. Well if their forefathers have not used their sense and have not found the right-path even then would they keep on following them?

وَمَثَلُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ كَمَثَلِ الَّذِي يَنْعِقُ بِمَا لاَ يَسْمَعُ إِلاَّ دُعَاء وَنِدَاء صُمٌّ بُكْمٌ عُمْيٌ

فَهُمْ لاَ يَعْقِلُونَ

171.          Wamathalu allatheena kafaroo kamathali allathee yanAAiqu bima la yasmaAAu illa duAAaan wanidaan summun bukmun AAumyun fahum la yaAAqiloona
These people who have refused to follow the path of Allh their condition is like, as shepherd calls the animals and they hear nothing except the sound of calls and cries. They are deaf, dumb and blind, so they do not understand anything.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُلُواْ مِن طَيِّبَاتِ مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ وَاشْكُرُواْ لِلّهِ إِن كُنتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ

172.          Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo kuloo min tayyibati ma razaqnakum waoshkuroo lillahi in kuntum iyyahu taAAbudoona
O people who have brought Faith, if in fact you are true worshiper of Allh Alone then eat freely those lawful things that WE have given you and be thankful to Allh.

إِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةَ وَالدَّمَ وَلَحْمَ الْخِنزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ بِهِ لِغَيْرِ اللّهِ فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ

غَيْرَ بَاغٍ وَلاَ عَادٍ فَلا إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ إِنَّ اللّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

173.          Innama harrama AAalaykumu almaytata waalddama walahma alkhinzeeri wama ohilla bihi lighayri Allahi famani idturra ghayra baghin wala AAadin fala ithma AAalayhi inna Allaha ghafoorun raheemun
If there is any restriction on you from Allh -- that is -- do not eat the dead animals (Maytatah), avoid the blood and the flesh of swine (pork), and do not eat any such thing on which someone elses name has been pronounced except the name of Allh. Yes if someone is in the situation of helplessness and he/she eats any of these things without that he/she has an intention to break the Law or exceeds the limits of necessity, then there is no sin on him/her, Allh is Oft-Forgiving and Loving.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْتُمُونَ مَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَيَشْتَرُونَ بِهِ ثَمَنًا قَلِيلاً أُولَـئِكَ مَا يَأْكُلُونَ فِي بُطُونِهِمْ إِلاَّ النَّارَ وَلاَ يُكَلِّمُهُمُ اللّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَلاَ يُزَكِّيهِمْ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

Truth is that those people who conceal those commandments which Allh has revealed in HIS Book and deliver these to gain small worldly benefits; in fact they are filling up their bellies with fire. On the Day of Resurrection Allh will not speak to them at all, nor will purify them, and there is a painful punishment for them.

أُولَـئِكَ الَّذِينَ اشْتَرَوُاْ الضَّلاَلَةَ بِالْهُدَى وَالْعَذَابَ بِالْمَغْفِرَةِ فَمَآ أَصْبَرَهُمْ عَلَى النَّارِ

These are those people who have acquired humiliation at the price of Guidance and traded misery for forgiveness. How strange their courage is that they are ready to undergo the punishment of Hell-Fire.

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللّهَ نَزَّلَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ اخْتَلَفُواْ فِي الْكِتَابِ لَفِي شِقَاقٍ بَعِيدٍ

176.          Thalika bianna Allaha nazzala alkitaba bialhaqqi wainna allatheena ikhtalafoo fee alkitabi lafee shiqaqin baAAeedin
This all happened because Allh had revealed the Book (Al-Qur'n) with facts and truth but those people who created the differences in the Book they have gone far away from truth in their conflicts. (R) 5

لَّيْسَ الْبِرَّ أَن تُوَلُّواْ وُجُوهَكُمْ قِبَلَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ وَلَـكِنَّ الْبِرَّ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ وَالْمَلآئِكَةِ وَالْكِتَابِ وَالنَّبِيِّينَ وَآتَى الْمَالَ عَلَى حُبِّهِ ذَوِي الْقُرْبَى وَالْيَتَامَى وَالْمَسَاكِينَ وَابْنَ السَّبِيلِ وَالسَّآئِلِينَ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَأَقَامَ الصَّلاةَ وَآتَى الزَّكَاةَ وَالْمُوفُونَ بِعَهْدِهِمْ إِذَا عَاهَدُواْ وَالصَّابِرِينَ فِي الْبَأْسَاء والضَّرَّاء وَحِينَ الْبَأْسِ أُولَـئِكَ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا وَأُولَـئِكَ هُمُ الْمُتَّقُونَ

This is not a righteousness (Al-Birr) that you turn your face towards the east or the west, but righteousness is that the person should truthfully believes in Allh and the Last Day and the Angels and the Books Allh has revealed and HIS Messengers and in love of Allh spends the most loved wealth on the relatives and the orphans, helpless (Al-Maskn) and the travelers, those who ask for help and to set slaves free, establishes prayer (As-Salt) and pays the poor-dues (Zakt). And righteous are those people, when they make any promise they fulfill it, and at the time of hardship and an adversity and in the battle of truth and falsehood (they) remain patient (As-Sbirin). These are the upright people and these are the people who fear Allh (Al-Muttaqn).

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِصَاصُ فِي الْقَتْلَى الْحُرُّ بِالْحُرِّ وَالْعَبْدُ بِالْعَبْدِ وَالأُنثَى بِالأُنثَى فَمَنْ عُفِيَ لَهُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ شَيْءٌ فَاتِّبَاعٌ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَأَدَاء إِلَيْهِ بِإِحْسَانٍ ذَلِكَ تَخْفِيفٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ فَمَنِ اعْتَدَى بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَلَهُ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

O people who have brought Faith, in case of murder the commandment for getting even (Al-Qiss) has been written for you. If a free man has killed then the same free man shall be punished for it, (if) a slave is a killer then the same slave shall be killed, and (if) a female has committed this crime then that female should be held accountable. Yes if with any killer his brother is willing to show leniency, then blood money (Al-Qiss) should be decided with fairness and it is compulsory for the killer to pay that blood money in a fair way. This is a relief and blessing from your Rbb. Now after this whoever violates the limits, there is a painful punishment for him/her--

وَلَكُمْ فِي الْقِصَاصِ حَيَاةٌ يَاْ أُولِيْ الأَلْبَابِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

179.          Walakum fee alqisasi hayatun ya olee alalbabi laAAallakum tattaqoona
O people with wisdom and understanding, there is a life for you in getting even (Qiss). It is expected that you will avoid violating this law.

كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذَا حَضَرَ أَحَدَكُمُ الْمَوْتُ إِن تَرَكَ خَيْرًا الْوَصِيَّةُ لِلْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالأقْرَبِينَ

It has been made compulsory for you that when the time of death approaches any of you and he/she is leaving wealth behind him/her, then (he/she) should make a will with fairness for the parents and the relatives. This is an obligation on those people who fear Allh (Al-Muttaqn).

فَمَن بَدَّلَهُ بَعْدَمَا سَمِعَهُ فَإِنَّمَا إِثْمُهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ يُبَدِّلُونَهُ إِنَّ اللّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

181.          Faman baddalahu baAAda ma samiAAahu fainnama ithmuhu AAala allatheena yubaddiloonahu inna Allaha sameeAAun AAaleemun
Then those who heard the will and afterward changed it, then the sin of it will be on those who changed it. Allh Knows and Hears everything.

فَمَنْ خَافَ مِن مُّوصٍ جَنَفًا أَوْ إِثْمًا فَأَصْلَحَ بَيْنَهُمْ فَلاَ إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ إِنَّ اللّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

182.          Faman khafa min moosin janafan aw ithman faaslaha baynahum fala ithma AAalayhi inna Allaha ghafoorun raheemun
However if one suspects that the person who had made the will has done some unjust intentionally or unintentionally, and then does reformation between the concerned parties, then there is no sin on him/her. Allh is Most Forgiving and Merciful. (R) 6

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

183.          Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo kutiba AAalaykumu alssiyamu kama kutiba AAala allatheena min qablikum laAAallakum tattaqoona
O people who have brought Faith, Fasting (As-Saum) has been made compulsory for you, as it had been made compulsory for the followers of Prophets before you. It is expected that with it the self-restraining (Al-Muttaqn) quality will be developed in you.

أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَاتٍ فَمَن كَانَ مِنكُم مَّرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ وَعَلَى الَّذِينَ يُطِيقُونَهُ فِدْيَةٌ طَعَامُ مِسْكِينٍ فَمَن تَطَوَّعَ خَيْرًا فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُ وَأَن تَصُومُواْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

The Fasting is for fixed number of days. If anyone among you is sick or on a journey then (he/she) should make up for the same number in other days. And as for those who can Fast (then do not Fast), then they should pay the compensation. The compensation of one Fast is to feed one poor person (Miskn), and whoever does more good with his/her own consent, then it is better for him/her. But if you understand, then it is best for you to Fast.

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِيَ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ يُرِيدُ اللّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلاَ يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُواْ الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُواْ اللّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

Ramadn is the month, in which Qur'n has been revealed that is a complete guidance for the mankind and it consists of such clear teachings which show the right path and openly distinguish between the Truth and the Falsehood. Therefore from now on whoever meets this month (of Ramadn); it is compulsory for him/her to Fast (Saum) for the whole month. And whoever is ill or on a journey, then (he/she) should make up for the same number of Fasting in other days. Allh wants to do mercy on you, (HE) does not want to oppress. That is why this way is shown to you so that you can complete the number of Fast and the guidance with which Allh has blessed you, on this, Glorify and admit the Greatness of Allh and become grateful.

And O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), If MY servants ask you about ME, then tell them that I AM near to them. When the supplicant call ME, I hear their prayers and answer it. Therefore they should respond to MY call and bring Faith in ME. (You tell them that) Perhaps they may find the right and straight path.

It has been made lawful for you to go to your wives on the nights of Fasting period (As-Saum). They are clothes (Lbas) for you and you are clothes for them. Allh knows that you people had been secretly doing dishonesty to yourselves, but HE forgave your sins and excused you. Now you spend nights with your wives and the joy that Allh has made lawful for you, seek it! In addition, eat and drink during the nights until you clearly see the white thread of dawn from the black thread of night. Then complete your Fast (Saum) till the nightfall -- abstaining from all these things. And when you are meditating (in I'tikf) in Masjid (Muslims place of worships) then do not make love with your wives. These are the limits set by Allh do not go near to them. In this way Allh Clearly States HIS Commandments (Ayt) for the mankind, it is expected that they will avoid the wrong behavior (and become Al-Muttaqn).

وَلاَ تَأْكُلُواْ أَمْوَالَكُم بَيْنَكُم بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتُدْلُواْ بِهَا إِلَى الْحُكَّامِ لِتَأْكُلُواْ فَرِيقًا مِّنْ أَمْوَالِ النَّاسِبِالإِثْمِ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

And neither you should consume one another's property unjustly and nor offer it (as bribe) to the rulers with the intention that you might get a chance to take any part of other's property intentionally in a sinful way. (R) 7

O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), people ask you about the different phases of moon. Say: "These (moon phases) are to compute the dates for the people and signs for the pilgrimage (Hajj)." Also tell them: "It is not a deed of piety (Al-Birr) that you enter your homes from the back. In fact the piety is that one should save oneself from the anger of Allh. Therefore you should enter to your homes through the (proper) door. Although keep fearing Allh. Perhaps you may become fortunate.

وَقَاتِلُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ وَلاَ تَعْتَدُواْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُحِبِّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ

190.           Waqatiloo fee sabeeli Allahi allatheena yuqatiloonakum wala taAAtadoo inna Allaha la yuhibbu almuAAtadeena
And you should fight in the Path of Allh against those people who fight with you, but do not exceed the limits, as Allh does not like the oppressors.

وَاقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ ثَقِفْتُمُوهُمْ وَأَخْرِجُوهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ أَخْرَجُوكُمْ وَالْفِتْنَةُ أَشَدُّ مِنَ الْقَتْلِ وَلاَ تُقَاتِلُوهُمْ عِندَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ حَتَّى يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ فِيهِ فَإِن قَاتَلُوكُمْ فَاقْتُلُوهُمْ كَذَلِكَ جَزَاء الْكَافِرِينَ

Fight against them wherever you encounter with them and expel them from where they have expelled you, although the killing is bad, but mischief (Al-Fitnah) is worse than it (killing). And do not fight with them near the Masjid-al-Harm (Sanctuary at Makkah) unless they fight against you, but when they do not hesitate to fight there, then you should freely kill them because this is the punishment for such infidels (Kafir).

فَإِنِ انتَهَوْاْ فَإِنَّ اللّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

192.           Faini intahaw fainna Allaha ghafoorun raheemun
Then if they stop, then beware that Allh is Forgiving and Merciful.

You keep fighting against them until there is no mischief (Fitnah) and the Deen (way of life) becomes for Allh Alone. Then if they surrender, then understand that there is no retaliation except against the wrong doers (Az-Zlimn).

The sacred month is for the sacred month and all the prohibited things have the Law of Equality (Qiss). Therefore whoever retaliates against you, you should also retaliate in the same way against them. Although keep fearing Allh and remember that Allh is with those people, who avoid breaking HIS Limits (Al-Muttaqn).

وَأَنفِقُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَلاَ تُلْقُواْ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ إِلَى التَّهْلُكَةِ وَأَحْسِنُوَاْ إِنَّ اللّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

Spend in the Path of Allh and do not put yourself into destruction by your own hands. Adopt the way of kindness that Allh likes the good-hearted people (Al-Muhsinn).

When you intend to perform Hajj and 'Umrah to seek the pleasure of Allh then fulfill it, and if you are surrounded somewhere then whatever sacrifice (Hady) is available, offer in the Path of Allh and do not shave your head until the sacrifice (Hady) reaches its place. But whoever is ill or has some disease in his/her head and for that reason gets his/her head shaved, then he/she should observe Fast (Saum) or give charity (Sadaqah) or offer sacrifice as to ask for forgiveness (Fidyah). Then if you get peace (and you reach Makkah before Hajj), then whoever among you takes the benefit of performing 'Umrah till the time of Hajj comes, he/she should offer a sacrifice (slaughter Hady) according to the means, and if the sacrifice is not available, then should Fast (Saum) for three days during the Hajj time and seven days after returning home, in this way (he/she) should fast for total of ten days. This concession is for those people, whose homes are not near to the Masjid-al-Harm. Refrain from violating these Laws of Allh and beware that Allh is Severe in HIS punishment. (R) 8

The months of Hajj are known to all. The person who intends to perform Hajj he/she should be aware that during the Hajj period he/she should not commit any act of sexuality, any immorality, any dispute and fight. And whatever good deeds you will do, it will be in the Knowledge of Allh. Take the provisions with you for the journey of Hajj, and piety (At-Taqwa) is the best of all the provisions. Therefore O people of understanding! Avoid MY disobedience.

And during the Hajj if you also seek the bounty of your Rbb, there is no harm (sin) in it. So when you depart from 'Araft, then stay near the Mash'ar-il-Harm (Muzdalifah) and remember Allh and remember as HE has guided you, otherwise before this you were misguided.

ثُمَّ أَفِيضُواْ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَفَاضَ النَّاسُ وَاسْتَغْفِرُواْ اللّهَ إِنَّ اللّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

199.           Thumma afeedoo min haythu afada alnnasu waistaghfiroo Allaha inna Allaha ghafoorun raheemun
Then you return from where all other people return and seek Forgiveness from Allh certainly HE is Forgiving and Merciful.

فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُم مَّنَاسِكَكُمْ فَاذْكُرُواْ اللّهَ كَذِكْرِكُمْ آبَاءكُمْ أَوْ أَشَدَّ ذِكْرًا فَمِنَ النَّاسِ

مَن يَقُولُ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا وَمَا لَهُ فِي الآخِرَةِ مِنْ خَلاَقٍ

200.           Faitha qadaytum manasikakum faothkuroo Allaha kathikrikum abaakum aw ashadda thikran famina alnnasi man yaqoolu rabbana atina fee alddunya wama lahu fee alakhirati min khalaqin
And when you have fulfilled the basics (Mansik) of your Hajj, then as you used to remember your forefathers, the same way now remember Allh even more then that. (But the people who remember Allh, subhaana wa ta'aala, has much difference) Among them there is one, who says that O my Rbb, give me everything in this world. For such person there is no share in the Hereafter.

وِمِنْهُم مَّن يَقُولُ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

201.           Waminhum man yaqoolu rabbana atina fee alddunya hasanatan wafee alakhirati hasanatan waqina AAathaba alnnari
And there is one who says O my Rbb, give me good in this world as well as in the Hereafter, and save me from the suffering of the Hell-Fire.

أُولَـئِكَ لَهُمْ نَصِيبٌ مِّمَّا كَسَبُواْ وَاللّهُ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ

202.           Olaika lahum naseebun mimma kasaboo waAllahu sareeAAu alhisabi
Such people according to their deeds will get the share (in both places) and Allh does not take long to settle the accounts.

وَاذْكُرُواْ اللّهَ فِي أَيَّامٍ مَّعْدُودَاتٍ فَمَن تَعَجَّلَ فِي يَوْمَيْنِ فَلاَ إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ وَمَن تَأَخَّرَ فَلا إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ لِمَنِ اتَّقَى وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ

203.           Waothkuroo Allaha fee ayyamin maAAdoodatin faman taAAajjala fee yawmayni fala ithma AAalayhi waman taakhkhara fala ithma AAalayhi limani ittaqa waittaqoo Allaha waiAAlamoo annakum ilayhi tuhsharoona
These are a few appointed days that you should spend in remembrance of Allh. Then whoever hastens to leave in two days, nothing is wrong, and whoever returns after staying a little longer even then nothing is wrong. Provided he/she has spent these days with piety-- refrain from disobeying Allh and know it very well that one-day you are going to be presented before HIM.

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُعْجِبُكَ قَوْلُهُ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيُشْهِدُ اللّهَ عَلَى مَا فِي قَلْبِهِ

وَهُوَ أَلَدُّ الْخِصَامِ

204.           Wamina alnnasi man yuAAjibuka qawluhu fee alhayati alddunya wayushhidu Allaha AAala ma fee qalbihi wahuwa aladdu alkhisami
Among the people there is one whose speech delights you in this worldly life, and on his noble intention he calls Allh as a witness over and again, but in fact he is the worst enemy of the Truth.

وَإِذَا تَوَلَّى سَعَى فِي الأَرْضِ لِيُفْسِدَ فِيِهَا وَيُهْلِكَ الْحَرْثَ وَالنَّسْلَ وَاللّهُ لاَ يُحِبُّ الفَسَادَ

205.           Waitha tawalla saAAa fee alardi liyufsida feeha wayuhlika alhartha waalnnasla waAllahu la yuhibbu alfasada
When he gains power then all his struggle on the land is to spread mischief, to plunder the crops and destroy the mankind-- although Allh (WHOM he was making a witness) does not like mischief at all--

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُ اتَّقِ اللّهَ أَخَذَتْهُ الْعِزَّةُ بِالإِثْمِ فَحَسْبُهُ جَهَنَّمُ وَلَبِئْسَ الْمِهَادُ

206.           Waitha qeela lahu ittaqi Allaha akhathathu alAAizzatu bialithmi fahasbuhu jahannamu walabisa almihadu
And when it is said to him: "Fear Allh", then a thought of his own dignity sticks him on the sin. For such person only the Hell is enough and it is a worst place.

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَشْرِي نَفْسَهُ ابْتِغَاء مَرْضَاتِ اللّهِ وَاللّهُ رَؤُوفٌ بِالْعِبَادِ

207.           Wamina alnnasi man yashree nafsahu ibtighaa mardati Allahi waAllahu raoofun bialAAibadi
On the other side among the mankind there is one who devotes his life to seek the pleasure of Allh and Allh is very kind for such servants.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ ادْخُلُواْ فِي السِّلْمِ كَآفَّةً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ

إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ

208.           Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo odkhuloo fee alssilmi kaffatan wala tattabiAAoo khutuwati alshshaytani innahu lakum AAaduwwun mubeenun
O who brought Faith; you enter completely into Islm and do not follow Satan (Shaitn) that he is your declared enemy.

فَإِن زَلَلْتُمْ مِّن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءتْكُمُ الْبَيِّنَاتُ فَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

209.           Fain zalaltum min baAAdi ma jaatkumu albayyinatu faiAAlamoo anna Allaha AAazeezun hakeemun
The plain and clear guidance that has come to you, if after receiving this you deviated, then know it well that Allh has Control over everything and is All Wise.

هَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلاَّ أَن يَأْتِيَهُمُ اللّهُ فِي ظُلَلٍ مِّنَ الْغَمَامِ وَالْمَلآئِكَةُ وَقُضِيَ الأَمْرُ وَإِلَى

اللّهِ تُرْجَعُ الأمُورُ

210.           Hal yanthuroona illa an yatiyahumu Allahu fee thulalin mina alghamami waalmalaikatu waqudiya alamru waila Allahi turjaAAu alomooru
(After all these advises and guidance if the people do not follow the right path then) Are they awaiting for this that Allh HIMSELF comes down to them in the shadows of clouds accompanying the groups of Angels and decision should be made? Eventually all the matters are going to be presented before Allh. (R) 9

سَلْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ كَمْ آتَيْنَاهُم مِّنْ آيَةٍ بَيِّنَةٍ وَمَن يُبَدِّلْ نِعْمَةَ اللّهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءتْهُ فَإِنَّ

اللّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ

211.           Sal banee israeela kam ataynahum min ayatin bayyinatin waman yubaddil niAAmata Allahi min baAAdi ma jaathu fainna Allaha shadeedu alAAiqabi
Ask the Children of Israel how plain and clear signs (Ayt) WE have shown to them (and then also tell them that) after receiving the revelation from Allh the nation who changes it with worthless things (renounces the Deen of Allh and accepts Kufr) then how severely Allh punishes it.

زُيِّنَ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا وَيَسْخَرُونَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّقَواْ فَوْقَهُمْ

يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَاللّهُ يَرْزُقُ مَن يَشَاء بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ

212.           Zuyyina lillatheena kafaroo alhayatu alddunya wayaskharoona mina allatheena amanoo waallatheena ittaqaw fawqahum yawma alqiyamati waAllahu yarzuqu man yashao bighayri hisabin
The worldly life has been made attractive and charming for those people who have adopted the path of infidelity (Kufr).
Such people mock at those who have adopted the path of Faith, but on the Day of Judgment the pious people will be on the highest place as compare to them. As for the worldly provisions, Allh has the control to give without any measure to whom HE wants.

كَانَ النَّاسُ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً فَبَعَثَ اللّهُ النَّبِيِّينَ مُبَشِّرِينَ وَمُنذِرِينَ وَأَنزَلَ مَعَهُمُ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ لِيَحْكُمَ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ فِيمَا اخْتَلَفُواْ فِيهِ وَمَا اخْتَلَفَ فِيهِ إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوهُ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءتْهُمُ الْبَيِّنَاتُ بَغْيًا بَيْنَهُمْ فَهَدَى اللّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لِمَا اخْتَلَفُواْ فِيهِ مِنَ الْحَقِّ بِإِذْنِهِ وَاللّهُ يَهْدِي مَن يَشَاء إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

213.           Kana alnnasu ommatan wahidatan fabaAAatha Allahu alnnabiyyeena mubashshireena wamunthireena waanzala maAAahumu alkitaba bialhaqqi liyahkuma bayna alnnasi feema ikhtalafoo feehi wama ikhtalafa feehi illa allatheena ootoohu min baAAdi ma jaathumu albayyinatu baghyan baynahum fahada Allahu allatheena amanoo lima ikhtalafoo feehi mina alhaqqi biithnihi waAllahu yahdee man yashao ila siratin mustaqeemin
In the beginning all the people were on the same path (Deen)
. (Then this situation did not remain the same and conflicts inflamed) Then Allh sent Prophets who were to give glad tidings for good deeds and to warn from the results of bad deeds, and revealed a Book in truth with them in order to settle the disputes about the truth that had been appeared among the people. (And it was not the reason of their differences that in the beginning the truth was not given to them) Absolutely not, those people differed whom the knowledge of truth had been given. After receiving the clear guidance they merely left the truth aside and invented different ways so that they can oppress one another-- so those people who brought Faith in Prophets -- Allh showed them the right Path by HIS Leave, in which they differed. Allh, whom HE wills, guides to the Right Path.

أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُواْ الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْاْ مِن قَبْلِكُم مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاء وَالضَّرَّاء وَزُلْزِلُواْ حَتَّى يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ مَعَهُ مَتَى نَصْرُ اللّهِ أَلا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللّهِ قَرِيبٌ

214.           Am hasibtum an tadkhuloo aljannata walamma yatikum mathalu allatheena khalaw min qablikum massathumu albasao waalddarrao wazulziloo hatta yaqoola alrrasoolu waallatheena amanoo maAAahu mata nasru Allahi ala inna nasra Allahi qareebun
Then do you think that you will be entered into the Paradise just for nothing (like this), although you have not gone through all that (trials) from which the believers before you have gone through?
They were afflicted (with severe poverty), ailments came, were so shaken, that even the Prophet of the time and his companions cried out when the Help of Allh will come? -- (At that time satisfaction was given that) Yes! The Help of Allh is near.

يَسْأَلُونَكَ مَاذَا يُنفِقُونَ قُلْ مَا أَنفَقْتُم مِّنْ خَيْرٍ فَلِلْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالأَقْرَبِينَ وَالْيَتَامَى وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ وَمَا تَفْعَلُواْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَإِنَّ اللّهَ بِهِ عَلِيمٌ

215.           Yasaloonaka matha yunfiqoona qul ma anfaqtum min khayrin falilwalidayni waalaqrabeena waalyatama waalmasakeeni waibni alssabeeli wama tafAAaloo min khayrin fainna Allaha bihi AAaleemun
The people ask -- what shall we spend? Tell them that whatever they spend (shall) spend on (your) parents, relatives, orphans, and the poor and needy (Al-Maskn), and the wayfarers. And whatever good you will do, Allh will be aware of it
.

كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ وَهُوَ كُرْهٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَى أَن تَكْرَهُواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَى أَن تُحِبُّواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

216.           Kutiba AAalaykumu alqitalu wahuwa kurhun lakum waAAasa an takrahoo shayan wahuwa khayrun lakum waAAasa an tuhibboo shayan wahuwa sharrun lakum waAllahu yaAAlamu waantum la taAAlamoona
You have been commanded for a war (Jihd) and you do not like it-- it may be that you dislike one thing and the same thing might be good for you. And it could be that you like one thing and the same might be bad for you. Allh knows, you do not know. (R) 10

يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الشَّهْرِ الْحَرَامِ قِتَالٍ فِيهِ قُلْ قِتَالٌ فِيهِ كَبِيرٌ وَصَدٌّ عَن سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَكُفْرٌ بِهِ وَالْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَإِخْرَاجُ أَهْلِهِ مِنْهُ أَكْبَرُ عِندَ اللّهِ وَالْفِتْنَةُ أَكْبَرُ مِنَ الْقَتْلِ وَلاَ يَزَالُونَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ حَتَّىَ يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَن دِينِكُمْ إِنِ اسْتَطَاعُواْ وَمَن يَرْتَدِدْ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَيَمُتْ وَهُوَ كَافِرٌ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَأُوْلَـئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

217.           Yasaloonaka AAani alshshahri alharami qitalin feehi qul qitalun feehi kabeerun wasaddun AAan sabeeli Allahi wakufrun bihi waalmasjidi alharami waikhraju ahlihi minhu akbaru AAinda Allahi waalfitnatu akbaru mina alqatli wala yazaloona yuqatiloonakum hatta yaruddookum AAan deenikum ini istataAAoo waman yartadid minkum AAan deenihi fayamut wahuwa kafirun faolaika habitat aAAmaluhum fee alddunya waalakhirati waolaika ashabu alnnari hum feeha khalidoona
The people ask: "How is fighting in the Sacred Month?" Say: "Fighting is very bad in it, but to stop people from the Path of Allh and to deny Allh and to close the doors of Masjid-al-Harm on the worshipers of Allh and to expel the residents of Al-Harm are more evil offences in the Sight of Allh -- and mischief (Al-Fitnah) is worse than killing. They will keep fighting you until they turn you back from your Deen (the way of life) if it is in their power. (And understand it very well) Whoever among you will turn back from his/her Deen (the Way of Life) and dies as an infidel (Kafir), his/her deeds will be wasted both in this world as well as in the Hereafter. All such people are the dwellers of the Hell-Fire and will stay in Hell forever.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَالَّذِينَ هَاجَرُواْ وَجَاهَدُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ أُوْلَـئِكَ يَرْجُونَ رَحْمَتَ اللّهِ

وَاللّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

218.           Inna allatheena amanoo waallatheena hajaroo wajahadoo fee sabeeli Allahi olaika yarjoona rahmata Allahi waAllahu ghafoorun raheemun
On the other hand those people who have brought Faith and left their homes for the sake of Allh and (did Jihad) exerted in the Path of Allh they are the right candidates for the Mercy of Allh and Allh is going to Forgive their mistakes and shower HIS Mercy on them.

يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْخَمْرِ وَالْمَيْسِرِ قُلْ فِيهِمَا إِثْمٌ كَبِيرٌ وَمَنَافِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَإِثْمُهُمَآ أَكْبَرُ مِن نَّفْعِهِمَا وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ مَاذَا يُنفِقُونَ قُلِ الْعَفْوَ كَذَلِكَ يُبيِّنُ اللّهُ لَكُمُ الآيَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَفَكَّرُونَ

They ask: "What is the commandment for alcohol/intoxicants and gambling?" Say: "There is a great harm in both of these things." Although there are some benefits in it for the people, but sin of these things is far greater than their benefits. They ask: "What shall we spend in the Path of Allh"? Say: "Whatever is in excess of your need". In this way Allh clearly states commandments for you

فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْيَتَامَى قُلْ إِصْلاَحٌ لَّهُمْ خَيْرٌ وَإِنْ تُخَالِطُوهُمْ فَإِخْوَانُكُمْ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ الْمُفْسِدَ مِنَ الْمُصْلِحِ وَلَوْ شَاء اللّهُ لأعْنَتَكُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

Perhaps you may think about both, this world as well as the Hereafter. They ask, "How shall we deal with the orphans"? Say, "Adopt the way that is good for them". If you combine your expenses and living with them, then there is no harm in it. After all they are your brothers/sisters. Allh knows both very well, the wrong doers and good doers. (If) Allh desired HE could be harder on you in this matter, but Allh is All Powerful as well as All Wise.

وَلاَ تَنكِحُواْ الْمُشْرِكَاتِ حَتَّى يُؤْمِنَّ وَلأَمَةٌ مُّؤْمِنَةٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن مُّشْرِكَةٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَتْكُمْ وَلاَ تُنكِحُواْ الْمُشِرِكِينَ حَتَّى يُؤْمِنُواْ وَلَعَبْدٌ مُّؤْمِنٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن مُّشْرِكٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكُمْ أُوْلَـئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ وَاللّهُ يَدْعُوَ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ

You never marry the mushrik women (idolatresses, Al-Mushrikt), until they bring Faith. A believer slave woman is better than a noble mushrik woman (Mushrikah, idolatress), even though you like her very much. And never marry your women to mushrik men (Al-Mushrikn, idolater) until they bring Faith. A believer slave man is better than a noble mushrik man (Al-Mushrikn, idolater), even though you like him very much. These people invite you to the Fire and Allh with HIS Leave invites you towards the Paradise and Forgiveness, and HE clearly states HIS orders before the people, it is expected that they will learn a lesson and will embrace the advice. (R) 11

وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْمَحِيضِ قُلْ هُوَ أَذًى فَاعْتَزِلُواْ النِّسَاء فِي الْمَحِيضِ وَلاَ تَقْرَبُوهُنَّ حَتَّىَ يَطْهُرْنَ فَإِذَا تَطَهَّرْنَ فَأْتُوهُنَّ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرَكُمُ اللّهُ إِنَّ اللّهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِينَ وَيُحِبُّ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ

They ask: "What is the commandment for menstruation (women's monthly course)?" Say: "That is a state of impurity (an Adha)." In this remain separated from the women and do not go near them (do not make love with them), until they are purified and clean. And when they purified themselves, then go to them as Allh has commanded you. Allh likes those people who abstain from evil and adopt the piety.

نِسَآؤُكُمْ حَرْثٌ لَّكُمْ فَأْتُواْ حَرْثَكُمْ أَنَّى شِئْتُمْ وَقَدِّمُواْ لأَنفُسِكُمْ وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّكُم

223.           Nisaokum harthun lakum fatoo harthakum anna shitum waqaddimoo lianfusikum waittaqoo Allaha waiAAlamoo annakum mulaqoohu wabashshiri almumineena
Your wives are your places of cultivation, you have the right, whatever way you want, go to your place of cultivation, but worry about your future and guard yourself from the displeasure of Allh. Know it well that one day you have to meet HIM and O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), whoever accept your guidance give them good news (of true success and blessing).

وَلاَ تَجْعَلُواْ اللّهَ عُرْضَةً لِّأَيْمَانِكُمْ أَن تَبَرُّواْ وَتَتَّقُواْ وَتُصْلِحُواْ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ

224.           Wala tajAAaloo Allaha AAurdatan liaymanikum an tabarroo watattaqoo watuslihoo bayna alnnasi waAllahu sameeAAun AAaleemun
Do not use the name of Allh for such sworn statements, for which you intend to keep back from good deeds and piety and welfare of servants of Allh. Allh is Hearing all your conversation and Knows everything.

لاَّ يُؤَاخِذُكُمُ اللّهُ بِاللَّغْوِ فِيَ أَيْمَانِكُمْ وَلَكِن يُؤَاخِذُكُم بِمَا كَسَبَتْ قُلُوبُكُمْ وَاللّهُ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌ

225.           La yuakhithukumu Allahu biallaghwi fee aymanikum walakin yuakhithukum bima kasabat quloobukum waAllahu ghafoorun haleemun
Allh does not hold you accountable for the meaningless and unintentional promises you make, but the statement you sworn upon with true heart, HE will surely hold you accountable for that. Allh is Oft-Forgiving and Forbearing.

لِّلَّذِينَ يُؤْلُونَ مِن نِّسَآئِهِمْ تَرَبُّصُ أَرْبَعَةِ أَشْهُرٍ فَإِنْ فَآؤُوا فَإِنَّ اللّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

226.           Lillatheena yuloona min nisaihim tarabbusu arbaAAati ashhurin fain faoo fainna Allaha ghafoorun raheemun
Those people, who take an oath not to have relationship with their wives, they have time period for four months
. If they reinstated, then Allh is Forgiving and Merciful.

وَإِنْ عَزَمُواْ الطَّلاَقَ فَإِنَّ اللّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

And if they have intended to divorce then (they) should know that Allh Hears and Knows everything.

The women who are divorced they should keep themselves awaiting for three menstrual periods, and it is not lawful for them to conceal what Allh has created in their wombs. They must not do this -- if they believe in Allh and the Last Day. If their husbands incline to reinstate, then they have the right to take them back as their wives during this waiting period. Women also have the same reasonable rights, as men have over them. However men have one rank higher over them. And above all Allh is present the Authoritative and All Wise. (R) 12

The divorce is twice. Then either you keep the woman in a reasonable way or let her go with kindness. And while seeing her off it is not lawful for you to take something back from that which you have given to her. Although there is an exception to it that if spouses fear that they will not be able to keep themselves within the limits of Allh. In that situation if you have fear that they both will not remain within the limits of Allh then there is no harm for settling this matter between them that woman gets separation by giving some compensation to her husband. These are the limits set by Allh do not violate them. And those people who violate the limits of Allh they are the cruel (Zlimn).

فَإِن طَلَّقَهَا فَلاَ تَحِلُّ لَهُ مِن بَعْدُ حَتَّىَ تَنكِحَ زَوْجًا غَيْرَهُ فَإِن طَلَّقَهَا فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِمَا أَن يَتَرَاجَعَا إِن ظَنَّا أَن يُقِيمَا حُدُودَ اللّهِ وَتِلْكَ حُدُودُ اللّهِ يُبَيِّنُهَا لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ

Then if (after pronouncing divorce twice if husband pronounce it third time to his wife) divorced (her), then that woman will not remain lawful to him, unless she marry with some other man and he divorces her (willingly). Then if first husband and this woman think that they will remain with in the limits of Allh then for them there is no sin to reunite with each other. These are the limits set by Allh which HE is clarifying for the guidance of those people who (know the result of breaking HIS limits) have the knowledge.

And when you divorce your women and they are about to complete the term of their prescribed period, then either make them to stay with a fair way or let them go in a reasonable way. Do not retain them merely to distress (them) that it will be a violation and whoever will do so, in fact he will do unjust to his own self. Do not make fun of the Verses (Laws) of Allh. Do not forget that Allh has Blessed you with what a great favor. HE advises you that the Book (Al-Qur'n) and Wisdom (Al-Hikmah) HE has revealed to you, pay due respect to it. Fear Allh and understand it well that Allh has the knowledge of everything. (R) 13

وَإِذَا طَلَّقْتُمُ النِّسَاء فَبَلَغْنَ أَجَلَهُنَّ فَلاَ تَعْضُلُوهُنَّ أَن يَنكِحْنَ أَزْوَاجَهُنَّ إِذَا تَرَاضَوْاْ بَيْنَهُم بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ذَلِكَ يُوعَظُ بِهِ مَن كَانَ مِنكُمْ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ ذَلِكُمْ أَزْكَى لَكُمْ وَأَطْهَرُ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

When you divorced your women and they complete their prescribed period, then do not hinder in it that they should marry with their proposed husbands when they mutually agree to marry each other in a lawful way. You are advised never do such thing, if you are going to bring Faith in Allh and the Last Day. The most moral and purer way for you is to abstain from it. Allh knows, you do not know.

The fathers who want their children shall nurse for complete suckling period (two whole years) then mothers shall breast-feed their children for complete two years. In this case the father of the child shall have to give them food and clothing in a fair way. But no one should be burdened more than what one can bear. Neither a mother should be troubled because of her child, and nor a father should be troubled because of his child-- as the feeding woman has this right on the father of the child, same is on his heirs-- But there is no sin if parties decide on weaning (stop suckling) by mutual consent and consultation. And if you intent to get your offspring suckle from some wet nurses then there is no harm in it -- provided whatever price you agreed, pay it in a fair way. Fear Allh and know it that whatever you do, Allh observes all.

Among you those who die, if they leave their wives behind them, then they (their wives) should detain themselves for four months and ten days. And when their term is complete, then they have the right to do in an honorable way whatever they want for themselves. There is no responsibility on you for it. Allh is aware of all of your deeds.

During their waiting periods whether you make indirect marriage proposal to these widows women, or you keep it hidden in your hearts, in both ways there is no sin. Allh knows that you will definitely think about them. But look, do not make any secret contract or promise. If you have to say anything then do it in a fair way. And do not decide to make marriage contract until the prescribed waiting term is over. Understand it well that Allh knows even the secrets of your hearts. So fear HIM and also know it that Allh is Forbearing and Forgiving. (R) 14

There is no sin on you if you divorce your wives before you touch them or determining their Dowry (Mahr). In this case something must be given to them. The wealthy man (should give) according to his means and the poor man should pay fairly according to his means. This is an obligation on the righteous people.

وَإِن طَلَّقْتُمُوهُنَّ مِن قَبْلِ أَن تَمَسُّوهُنَّ وَقَدْ فَرَضْتُمْ لَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً فَنِصْفُ مَا فَرَضْتُمْ إَلاَّ أَن يَعْفُونَ أَوْ يَعْفُوَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ عُقْدَةُ النِّكَاحِ وَأَن تَعْفُواْ أَقْرَبُ لِلتَّقْوَى وَلاَ تَنسَوُاْ الْفَضْلَ بَيْنَكُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ

And if you have divorced before you touched them, but the dowry has been determined, then in this situation you would have to pay half of the dowry. This is another thing that if a woman shows leniency (and do not take the dowry) or that man, in whose hands is the marriage tie, shows the leniency (and pay full dowry), and you (men) act with kindness, then it is closer to the piety (At-Taqwa). Do not forget the kindness in your mutual dealings. Allh is Watching over your deeds.

Guard your prayers (As-Salawt), especially the prayer that has excellent qualities of (being the middle) prayer (Salt-ul-Asr). Stand before Allh as an obedient servant stands.

فَإنْ خِفْتُمْ فَرِجَالاً أَوْ رُكْبَانًا فَإِذَا أَمِنتُمْ فَاذْكُرُواْ اللّهَ كَمَا عَلَّمَكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُواْ تَعْلَمُونَ

Offer prayer in all possible ways, either (you are) in the state of unrest (difficulty), or on foot, or riding. And when you are in state of peace, then remember Allh in the way that HE has taught you, before it you were unaware of it.

Among you those people who die and are leaving wives behind them, they should make a will in favor of their wives that they (the wives) should get provisions for one full year and they should not be expelled from homes. Then if they (the wives) leave themselves, and whatever they do for themselves in honorable way then there is no responsibility on you for it, Allh has Power over everything and All Wise.

Have you ever ponder on the condition of those people, who left their homes for the fear of death and were in thousands? Allh said to them: "Die". Then HE gave them life again. The fact is that Allh is Most Merciful for the mankind, but most people do not pay gratitude--

Then have you thought about that matter which the chiefs of the Israelites (Children of Israel) had faced after Msa? They said to their Prophet: "Appoint a king for us so that we fight in the Path of Allh." The Prophet asked: "Would it not be that you are ordered to fight and you do not fight?" They said: "How it could be possible that we do not fight for the Cause of Allh while we have been driven out of our homes and our children have been separated from us?" But when they were ordered to fight except a few they all turned their backs, and Allh Knows each and everyone of these cruel (Zlimn).

Their Prophet (Samuel) said to them that Allh has appointed Talt (Saul) to be your king. After hearing this they said: "What right he has to become our king? As compare to him we have better right for the kingship. He is not a rich person." The Prophet replied: "Allh has chosen him over you and he has been given plenty of abilities, knowledge and height, and Allh has the power to grant HIS Kingdom whom HE wants, Allh is Boundless and everything is in HIS Knowledge."

وَقَالَ لَهُمْ نِبِيُّهُمْ إِنَّ آيَةَ مُلْكِهِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ التَّابُوتُ فِيهِ سَكِينَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَبَقِيَّةٌ مِّمَّا تَرَكَ آلُ مُوسَى وَآلُ هَارُونَ تَحْمِلُهُ الْمَلآئِكَةُ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَةً لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

With this their Prophet (Samuel) told them:"The sign of his appointment as a king from Allh is that during his rule you will get the box back, in which there is peace of mind (Sakinah) for you from your Rbb, which has the sacred residue left by the family of Msa and family of Hrn, and which has been carried by the angels at this time. If you are true believers, then it is a great sign for you. (R) 16

249.           Falamma fasala talootu bialjunoodi qala inna Allaha mubtaleekum binaharin faman shariba minhu falaysa minnee waman lam yatAAamhu fainnahu minnee illa mani ightarafa ghurfatan biyadihi fashariboo minhu illa qaleelan minhum falamma jawazahu huwa waallatheena amanoo maAAahu qaloo la taqata lana alyawma bijaloota wajunoodihi qala allatheena yathunnoona annahum mulaqoo Allahi kam min fiatin qaleelatin ghalabat fiatan katheeratan biithni Allahi waAllahu maAAa alssabireena
And when Talt left with his army then he said:"You are going to be tested by Allh on a river. Whoever will drink its water, he is not my companion. My companion is the one who does not satisfy his thirst from it. Yes, someone may drink a sip or so from it". But except a small group they all saturated from this river. And when Talt and his Muslim companions advanced after crossing the river, they said to Talt that today we do not have power to face the Jalt and his armies. But those people who understood that one day they have to meet with their Allh they said: "It has happened very often that a small group by the Leave of Allh has captured the powerful group. Allh is companion of those who are patient (As-Sbirin)."

وَلَمَّا بَرَزُواْ لِجَالُوتَ وَجُنُودِهِ قَالُواْ رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانصُرْنَا

عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ

250.           Walamma barazoo lijaloota wajunoodihi qaloo rabbana afrigh AAalayna sabran wathabbit aqdamana waonsurna AAala alqawmi alkafireena
And when they advanced to face Jalt and his forces, they prayed: "O our Rbb, bless us with patience, make our footing firm and grant us victory over this group of infidels (Kafir)."

فَهَزَمُوهُم بِإِذْنِ اللّهِ وَقَتَلَ دَاوُدُ جَالُوتَ وَآتَاهُ اللّهُ الْمُلْكَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَعَلَّمَهُ مِمَّا يَشَاء وَلَوْلاَ دَفْعُ اللّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَّفَسَدَتِ الأَرْضُ وَلَـكِنَّ اللّهَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى الْعَالَمِينَ

251.           Fahazamoohum biithni Allahi waqatala dawoodu jaloota waatahu Allahu almulka waalhikmata waAAallamahu mimma yashao walawla dafAAu Allahi alnnasa baAAdahum bibaAAdin lafasadati alardu walakinna Allaha thoo fadlin AAala alAAalameena
Consequently, with the Leave of Allh they defeated them and Dawd killed Jalt and Allh blessed him with kingdom and wisdom (Al-Hikmah) and of whatever things HE wanted gave him the knowledge-- if Allh had not been replacing one group of people by another group then there would be disorder on the earth, but it is a great blessing of Allh on the people of the world (that in this way HE keeps repelling the disorder).

تِلْكَ آيَاتُ اللّهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَإِنَّكَ لَمِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ

252.           Tilka ayatu Allahi natlooha AAalayka bialhaqqi wainnaka lamina almursaleena
These are the Verses of Allh which WE are conveying to you (Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) accurately, and O Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam; you are surely from among those people who have been sent as Rasools.
