#47. Muhammed *SURAH*



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful




1. Those who reject Allah and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah
their deeds will Allah render astray (From their mark)

2. But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness and
believe in the (Revelation) sent down to Muhammad-for it is the
Truth from their Lord He will remove from them their ills and
improve their condition

3. This because those who reject Allah follow vanities while
those who believe follow the Truth from their Lord: Thus does
Allah set forth for men their lessons by similitudes

4. Therefore when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight) smite at
their necks; at length when ye have thoroughly subdued them bind
a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either
generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus
(are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah's Will He could
certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He
lets you fight) in order to test you some with others. But those
who are slain in the way of Allah He will never let their deeds
be lost

5. Soon will He guide them and improve their condition

6. And admit them to the Garden which He has announced for them

7. O ye who believe! if ye will aid (the cause of) Allah He will
aid you and plant your feet firmly

8. But those who reject (Allah) for them is destruction and
(Allah) will render their deeds astray (from their mark)

9. That is because they hate the Revelation of Allah; so He has
made their deeds fruitless

10. Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the End
of those before them (who did evil)? Allah brought utter
destruction on them and similar (fates await) those who reject
Allah.

11. That is because Allah is the Protector of those who believe
but those who reject Allah have no protector

12. Verily Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous
deeds to Gardens beneath which rivers flow; while those who
reject Allah will enjoy (this world) and eat as cattle eat; and
the Fire will be their abode

13. And how many cities with more power than thy city which has
driven thee out have We destroyed (for their sins)? And there was
none to aid them

14. Is then one who is on a clear (Path) from his Lord no better
than one to whom the evil of his conduct seems pleasing and such
as follow their own lusts?

15. (Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are
promised: in it are rivers of water incorruptible: rivers of milk
of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine a joy to those
who drink; and rivers of honey pure and clear. In it there are
for them all kinds of fruits and Grace from their Lord. (Can
those in such Bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell for ever
in the Fire and be given to drink boiling water so that it cuts
up their bowels (to pieces)?

16. And among them are men who listen to thee but in the end when
they go out from thee they say to those who have received
Knowledge: "What is it he said just then?" Such are men whose
hearts Allah has sealed and who follow their own lusts

17. But to those who receive Guidance He increases (the light of)
Guidance and bestows on them their Piety and Restraint (from
evil)

18. Do they then only wait for the Hour that it should come on
them of a sudden? But already have come some tokens thereof and
when it (actually) is on them how can they benefit then by their
admonition?

19. Know therefore that there is no god but Allah and ask
forgiveness for the fault and for the men and women who believe:
for Allah knows how ye move about and how ye dwell in your homes

20. Those who believe say "Why is not a Surah sent down (for
us)?" But when a Surah of basic or categorical meaning is
revealed and fighting is mentioned therein thou wilt see those in
whose hearts is a disease looking at thee with a look of one in
swoon at the approach of death: but more fitting for them

21. Were it to obey and say what is just and when a matter is
resolved on it were best for them if they were true to Allah

22. Then is it to be expected of you if ye will do no mischief in
the land and break your ties of kith and kin?

23. Such are the men whom Allah has cursed for He has made them
deaf and blinded their sight

24. Do they not then earnestly seek to understand the Qur'an or
are their hearts locked up by them?

25. Those who turn back as apostates after Guidance was clearly
shown to them the Evil One has instigated them and buoyed them up
with false hopes

26. This because they said to those who hate what Allah has
revealed "We will obey you in part of (this) matter"; but Allah
knows their (inner) secrets.

27. But how (will it be) when the angels take their souls at
death and smite their faces and their backs?

28. This because they followed that which called forth the Wrath
of Allah and they hated Allah's good pleasure; so He made their
deeds of no effect

29. Or do those in whose hearts is a disease think that Allah
will not bring to light all their rancor?

30. Had We so willed We could have shown them up to thee and thou
shouldst have known them by their marks: but surely thou wilt
know them by the tone of their speech! And Allah knows All that
ye do.

31. And We shall try you until We test those among you who strive
their utmost and persevere in patience; and We shall try your
reported (mettle)

32. Those who reject Allah hinder (men) from the Path of Allah
and resist the Apostle after Guidance has been clearly shown to
them will not injure Allah in the least but He will make their
deeds of no effect

33. O ye who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and make
not vain your deeds!

34. Those who reject Allah and hinder (men) from the Path of
Allah then die rejecting Allah Allah will not forgive them

35. Be not weary and faint-hearted crying for peace. When ye
should be Uppermost: for Allah is with you and will never put you
in loss for your (good) deeds

36. The life of this world is but play and amusement: and if ye
believe land guard against evil He will grant you your recompense
and will not ask you (to give up) your possessions

37. If He were to ask you for all of them and press you ye would
covetously withhold and He would bring out all your ill-feeling

38. Behold ye are those invited to spend (of your substance) in
the way of Allah: but among you are some that are niggardly. But
any who are niggardly are so at the expense of their own souls.
But Allah is free of all wants and it is ye that are needy. If ye
turn back (from the Path) He will substitute in your stead
another people; then they would not be like you!
