Sura - 60 The Test
shortcut bar [60|61|62|63|64|65]

[60:0] In the name of ALLAH, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[60:1] O you who believe, you shall not befriend My enemies and your enemies, extending love and friendship to them, even though they have disbelieved in the truth that has come to you. They persecute the messenger, and you, just because you believe in ALLAH, your Lord. If you mobilize to struggle in My cause, seeking My blessings, how can you secretly love them? I am fully aware of everything you conceal, and everything you declare. Those among you who do this have indeed strayed off the right path.

[60:2] Whenever they encounter you, they treat you as enemies, and hurt you with their hands and tongues. They want you to disbelieve.

[60:3] Your relatives and your money can never help you. On the Day of Resurrection, He will judge among you. ALLAH is Seer of everything you do.

[60:4] A good example has been set for you by Abraham and those with him. They said to their people, "We disown you and the idols that you worship besides ALLAH. We denounce you, and you will see nothing from us except animosity and hatred until you believe in ALLAH ALONE." However, a mistake was committed by Abraham when he said to his father, "I will pray for your forgiveness, but I possess no power to protect you from ALLAH." "Our Lord, we trust in You, and submit to You; to You is the final destiny.

[60:5] "Our Lord, let us not be oppressed by those who disbelieved, and forgive us. You are the Almighty, Most Wise."

[60:6] A good example has been set by them for those who seek ALLAH and the Last Day. As for those who turn away, ALLAH is in no need (of them), Most Praiseworthy.

[60:7] ALLAH may change the animosity between you and them into love. ALLAH is Omnipotent. ALLAH is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

[60:8] ALLAH does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. ALLAH loves the equitable.

[60:9] ALLAH enjoins you only from befriending those who fight you because of religion, evict you from your homes, and band together with others to banish you. You shall not befriend them. Those who befriend them are the transgressors.

[60:10] O you who believe, when believing women (abandon the enemy and) ask for asylum with you, you shall test them. ALLAH is fully aware of their belief. Once you establish that they are believers, you shall not return them to the disbelievers. They are not lawful to remain married to them, nor shall the disbelievers be allowed to marry them. Give back the dowries that the disbelievers have paid. You commit no error by marrying them, so long as you pay them their due dowries. Do not keep disbelieving wives (if they wish to join the enemy). You may ask them for the dowry you had paid, and they may ask for what they paid. This is ALLAH's rule; He rules among you. ALLAH is Omniscient, Most Wise.

[60:11] If any of your wives join the enemies' camp, and you are forced to fight, you shall force the enemy to compensate the men who lost their wives, by giving them what they spent on their wives. You shall reverence ALLAH, in whom you believe.

[60:12] O you prophet, when the believing women (who abandoned the disbelievers) to seek asylum with you pledge to you that they will not set up any idols besides ALLAH, nor steal, nor commit adultery, nor kill their children, nor fabricate any falsehood, nor disobey your righteous orders, you shall accept their pledge, and pray to ALLAH to forgive them. ALLAH is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

[60:13] O you who believe, do not befriend people with whom ALLAH is angry, and who are hopelessly stuck in disbelief; they are just as hopeless as the disbelievers who are already in the graves.

Sura - 61 The Column
shortcut bar [60|61|62|63|64|65]

[61:0] In the name of ALLAH, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[61:1] Glorifying ALLAH is everything in the Heavens and everything on Earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

[61:2] O you who believe, why do you say what you do not do?

[61:3] Most abominable in the sight of ALLAH is that you say what you do not do.

[61:4] ALLAH loves those who fight in His cause united in one column, like the bricks in one wall.

[61:5] Recall that Moses said to his people, "O my people, why do you hurt me, even though you know that I am ALLAH's messenger to you?" When they deviated, ALLAH diverted their hearts. For ALLAH does not guide the wicked people.

[61:6] Recall that Jesus, son of Mary, said, "O Children of Israel, I am ALLAH's messenger to you, confirming the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be even more praised (Ahmad)." Then, when he showed them the clear proofs, they said, "This is profound magic."

[61:7] Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies about ALLAH, and he is being invited to Submission? ALLAH does not guide the evil people.

[61:8] They wish to put out ALLAH's light with their mouths. But ALLAH insists upon perfecting His light, in spite of the disbelievers.

[61:9] He has sent His messenger with the guidance and the true religion, and will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.

[61:10] O you who believe, let Me inform you of a trade that will save you from painful retribution.

[61:11] Believe in ALLAH and His messenger and strive in the cause of ALLAH with your money and your lives. This is the best deal for you, if you only knew.

[61:12] In return, He forgives your sins, and admits you into gardens with flowing streams, with beautiful mansions in the gardens of Eden. This is the greatest triumph.

[61:13] Additionally, you get something you truly love: support from ALLAH and guaranteed victory. Give good news to the believers.

[61:14] O you who believe, be ALLAH's supporters, like the disciples of Jesus, son of Mary. When he said to them, "Who are my supporters towards ALLAH," they said, "We are ALLAH's supporters." Thus, a group from the Children of Israel believed, and another group disbelieved. We helped those who believed against their enemy, until they won.

Sura - 62 Friday
shortcut bar [60|61|62|63|64|65]

[62:0] In the name of ALLAH, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[62:1] Glorifying ALLAH is everything in the Heavens and everything on Earth; the King, the Most Sacred, the Almighty, the Most Wise.

[62:2] He is the One who sent to the gentiles a messenger from among them, to recite to them His revelations, purify them, and teach them the scripture and wisdom. Before this, they had gone far astray.

[62:3] And to many generations subsequent to them. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

[62:4] Such is ALLAH's grace that He bestows upon whomever He wills. ALLAH is Possessor of Infinite Grace.

[62:5] The example of those who were given the Torah, then failed to uphold it, is like the donkey carrying great works of literature. Miserable indeed is the example of people who rejected ALLAH's revelations. ALLAH does not guide the wicked people.

[62:6] Say, "O you who are Jewish, if you claim that you are ALLAH's chosen, to the exclusion of all other people, then you should long for death if you are truthful!"

[62:7] They will never long for it, because of what they have committed. ALLAH is fully aware of the wicked.

[62:8] Say, "The death that you are trying to evade will catch up with you sooner or later. Then you will be returned to the Knower of all secrets and declarations, then He will inform you of everything you had done."

[62:9] O you who believe, when the Congregational Prayer (Salat Al-Jumu`ah) is announced on Friday, you shall hasten to the commemoration of ALLAH, and drop all business. This is better for you, if you only knew.

[62:10] Once the prayer is completed, you may spread through the land to seek ALLAH's bounties, and continue to remember ALLAH frequently, that you may succeed.

[62:11] When some of them come across a business deal, or some entertainment, they rush to it and leave you standing! Say, "What ALLAH possesses is far better than the entertainment or the business. ALLAH is the best Provider."

Sura - 63 The Hypocrites
shortcut bar [60|61|62|63|64|65]

[63:0] In the name of ALLAH, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[63:1] When the hypocrites come to you they say, "We bear witness that you are the messenger of ALLAH." ALLAH knows that you are His messenger, and ALLAH bears witness that the hypocrites are liars.

[63:2] Under the guise of their apparent faith, they repel the people from the path of ALLAH. Miserable indeed is what they do.

[63:3] This is because they believed, then disbelieved. Hence, their minds are blocked; they do not understand.

[63:4] When you see them, you may be impressed by their looks. And when they speak, you may listen to their eloquence. They are like standing logs. They think that every call is intended against them. These are the real enemies; beware of them. ALLAH condemns them; they have deviated.

[63:5] When they are told, "Come let the messenger of ALLAH pray for your forgiveness," they mockingly turn their heads, and you see them repel others and act arrogantly.

[63:6] It is the same for them, whether you pray for their forgiveness, or not pray for their forgiveness; ALLAH will not forgive them. For ALLAH does not guide the wicked people.

[63:7] They are the ones who say, "Do not give any money to those who followed the messenger of ALLAH, perhaps they abandon him!" However, ALLAH possesses the treasures of the Heavens and the Earth, but the hypocrites do not comprehend.

[63:8] They say, "If we go back to the city, the powerful therein will evict the weak (and we will be victimized)." (They should know that) all dignity belongs to ALLAH and His messenger, and the believers. However, the hypocrites do not know.

[63:9] O you who believe, do not be distracted by your money and your children from remembering ALLAH. Those who do this are the losers.

[63:10] You shall give from our provisions to you before death comes to you, then you say, "My Lord, if only You could delay this for a short while! I would then be charitable and join the righteous!"

[63:11] ALLAH never delays the appointed time of death for any soul. ALLAH is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

Sura - 64 Mutual Blaming
shortcut bar [60|61|62|63|64|65]

[64:0] In the name of ALLAH, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[64:1] Glorifying ALLAH is everything in the Heavens and everything on Earth. To Him belongs all kingship, and to Him belongs all praise, and He is Omnipotent.

[64:2] He is the One who created you, then among you there is the disbeliever, and the believer. ALLAH is fully Seer of everything you do.

[64:3] He created the Heavens and the Earth for a specific purpose, designed you and perfected your design, then to Him is the final destiny.

[64:4] He knows everything in the Heavens and the Earth, and He knows everything you conceal and everything you declare. ALLAH is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

[64:5] Have you noted those who disbelieved in the past, then suffered the consequences of their decision? They incurred a painful retribution.

[64:6] This is because their messengers went to them with clear proofs, but they said, "Shall we follow humans like us?" They disbelieved and turned away. ALLAH does not need them; ALLAH is in no need, Praiseworthy.

[64:7] Those who disbelieved claim that they will not be resurrected! Yes indeed, by my Lord, you will be resurrected, and you will be held accountable for everything you have done. This is easy for ALLAH to do.

[64:8] Therefore, you shall believe in ALLAH and His messenger, and the light that we have revealed herein. ALLAH is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

[64:9] The day will come when He summons you to the Day of Summoning. That is the Day of Mutual Blaming. Anyone who believes in ALLAH and leads a righteous life, He will remit his sins, and will admit him into gardens with flowing streams. They abide therein forever. This is the greatest triumph.

[64:10] As for those who disbelieve and reject our revelations, they are the dwellers of the Hellfire; they abide therein forever. What a miserable destiny!

[64:11] Nothing happens to you except in accordance with ALLAH's will. Anyone who believes in ALLAH, He will guide his heart. ALLAH is fully aware of all things.

[64:12] You shall obey ALLAH and you shall obey the messenger. If you turn away, then the sole mission of our messenger is to deliver the message.

[64:13] ALLAH: there is no other god besides Him. In ALLAH the believers shall trust.

[64:14] O you who believe, your spouses and your children can be your enemies; beware. If you pardon, forget, and forgive, then ALLAH is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

[64:15] Your money and children are a test, and ALLAH possesses a great recompense.

[64:16] Therefore, you shall reverence ALLAH as much as you can, and listen, and obey, and give (to charity) for your own good. Anyone who is protected from his own stinginess, these are the successful ones.

[64:17] If you lend ALLAH a loan of righteousness, He will multiply the reward for you manifold, and forgive you. ALLAH is Appreciative, Clement.

[64:18] The Knower of all secrets and declarations; the Almighty, Most Wise.

Sura - 65 Divorce
shortcut bar [60|61|62|63|64|65]

[65:0] In the name of ALLAH, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[65:1] O you prophet, when you people divorce the women, you shall ensure that a divorce interim is fulfilled. You shall measure such an interim precisely. You shall reverence ALLAH your Lord. Do not evict them from their homes, nor shall you make life miserable for them, to force them to leave on their own, unless they commit a proven adultery. These are ALLAH's laws. Anyone who transgresses ALLAH's laws commits an injustice against himself. You never know; maybe ALLAH wills something good to come out of this.

[65:2] Once the interim is fulfilled, you may reconcile with them equitably, or go through with the separation equitably. You shall have two equitable witnesses witness the divorce before ALLAH. This is to enlighten those who believe in ALLAH and the Last Day. Anyone who reverences ALLAH, He will create an exit for him.

[65:3] And will provide for him whence he never expected. Anyone who trusts in ALLAH, He suffices him. ALLAH's commands are done. ALLAH has decreed for everything its fate.

[65:4] As for the women who have reached menopause, if you have any doubts, their interim shall be three months. As for those who do not menstruate, and discover that they are pregnant, their interim ends upon giving birth. Anyone who reverences ALLAH, He makes everything easy for him.

[65:5] This is ALLAH's command that He sends down to you. Anyone who reverences ALLAH, He remits his sins, and rewards him generously.

[65:6] You shall allow them to live in the same home in which they lived with you, and do not make life so miserable for them that they leave on their own. If they are pregnant, you shall spend on them until they give birth. If they nurse the infant, you shall pay them for this service. You shall maintain the amicable relations among you. If you disagree, you may hire another woman to nurse the child.

[65:7] The rich husband shall provide support in accordance with his means, and the poor shall provide according to the means that ALLAH bestowed upon him. ALLAH does not impose on any soul more than He has given it. ALLAH will provide ease after difficulty.

[65:8] Many a community rebelled against the commands of its Lord and against His messengers. Consequently, we held them strictly accountable, and requited them a terrible requital.

[65:9] They suffered the consequences of their decisions; a profound loss.

[65:10] ALLAH has prepared for them severe retribution. Therefore, you shall reverence ALLAH, O you who possess intelligence and believed. ALLAH has sent down to you a message -

[65:11] a messenger who recites to you ALLAH's revelations, clearly, to lead those who believe and work righteousness out of the darkness into the light. Anyone who believes in ALLAH and leads a righteous life, He will admit him into gardens with flowing streams; they abide therein forever. ALLAH will generously reward him.

[65:12] ALLAH created seven universes and the same number of earths. The commands flow among them. This is to let you know that ALLAH is Omnipotent, and that ALLAH is fully aware of all things.
