#48. Fat-h *SURAH*



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful




1. Verily We have granted thee a manifest Victory

2. That Allah may forgive thee thy faults of the past and those
to follow fulfil His favor to thee; and guide thee on the
Straight Way

3. And that Allah may help thee with powerful help

4. It is He who sent down Tranquillity into the hearts of the
Believers that they may Add Faith to their Faith; for to Allah
belong the Forces of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is full
of Knowledge and Wisdom

5. That He may admit the men and women who believe to Gardens
beneath which rivers flow to dwell therein for aye and remove
their ills from them; and that is in the sight of Allah the
highest achievement (For man)

6. And that He may punish the Hypocrites men and women and the
Polytheists men and women who imagine an evil opinion of Allah.
On them is a round of Evil: the Wrath of Allah is on them: He has
cursed them and got Hell ready for them: and evil is it for a
destination

7. For to Allah belong the Forces of the heavens and the earth;
and Allah is Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom

8. We have truly sent thee as a witness as a bringer of Glad
Tidings and as a Warner

9. In order that ye (o men) may believe in Allah and His Apostle
that ye may assist and honor Him and celebrate his praises
morning and evening

10. Verily those who plight their fealty to thee do no less than
plight their fealty to Allah: the Hand of Allah is over their
hands: Then anyone who violates His oath does so to the harm of
his own soul and anyone who fulfills what he has covenanted with
Allah Allah will soon grant him a great Reward

11. The desert Arabs who lagged behind will say to thee: "We were
engaged in (looking after) our flocks and herds and our families;
do thou then ask forgiveness for us." They say with their tongues
what is not in their hearts. Say: "Who then has any power at all
(to intervene) on your behalf with Allah if His will is to give
you some loss or to give you some profit? but Allah is well
acquainted with all that ye do

12. "Nay ye thought that the Apostle and the Believers would
never return to their families; this seemed pleasing in your
hearts and ye conceived an evil thought for ye are a people lost
(in wickedness)."

13. And if any believe not in Allah and His Apostle We have
prepared for those who reject Allah a Blazing Fire!

14. To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth:
He forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills: but
Allah is Oft- Forgiving Most Merciful

15. Those who lagged behind (will say) when ye (are free to)
march and take booty (in war): "Permit us to follow you." They
wish to change Allah's decree: Say: "Not thus will ye follow us:
Allah has already declared (this) beforehand": then they will say
"but ye are jealous of us." Nay but, little do they understand
(such things)

16. Say to the desert Arabs who lagged behind: "Ye shall be
summoned (to fight) against a people given to vehement war: then
shall ye fight or they shall submit. Then if ye show obedience
Allah will grant you a goodly reward but if ye turn back as ye
did before He will punish you with a grievous Penalty."

17. No blame is there on the blind nor is there blame on the lame
nor on one ill (if he joins not the war): but he that obeys Allah
and His Apostle (Allah) will admit him to Gardens beneath which
rivers flow; and he who turns back (Allah) will punish him with a
grievous Penalty

18. Allah's Good Pleasure was on the believers when they swore
Fealty to thee under the Tree: He knew what was in their hearts
and He sent down tranquillity to them and He rewarded them with a
speedy Victory

19. And many gains will they acquire (besides): and Allah is
Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom

20. Allah has promised you many gains that ye shall acquire and
He has given you these beforehand; and He has restrained the
hands of men from you that it may be a Sign for the Believers and
that He may guide you to a Straight Path

21. And other gains (there are) which are not within your power
but which Allah has compassed: and Allah has power over all
things

22. If the Unbelievers should fight you they would certainly turn
their backs then would they find neither protector nor helper.

23. (Such has been) the practice (Approved) of Allah already in
the past: no change wilt thou find in the practice (approved) of
Allah

24. And it is He who has restrained their hands from you and your
hand from them in the midst of Mecca after that He gave you the
victory over them. And Allah sees well all that ye do

25. They are the ones who denied revelation and hindered you from
the Sacred Mosque and the sacrificial animals detained from
reaching their place of sacrifice. Had there not been believing
men and believing women whom ye did not know that ye were
trampling down and on whose account a crime would have accrued to
you without (your) knowledge. (Allah would have allowed you to
force your way but He held back your hands) that He may admit to
His mercy whom He will. If they had been apart We should
certainly have punished the Unbelievers among them with a
grievous punishment

26. While the Unbelievers got up in their hearts heat and
cant-the heat and cant of Ignorance Allah sent down His
tranquillity to His Apostle and to the Believers and made them
stick close to the command of self-restraint and well were they
entitled to it and worthy of it. And Allah has full knowledge of
all things

27. Truly did Allah fulfil the vision for His Apostle: Ye shall
enter the Sacred Mosque if Allah wills with minds secure heads
shaved hair cut short and without fear. For He knew what ye knew
not and He granted besides this a speedy victory

28. It is He who has sent His Apostle with Guidance and the
Religion of Truth to proclaim it over all religion: and enough is
Allah for a Witness

29. Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah; and those who are with him
are strong against Unbelievers (but) compassionate amongst each
other. Thou wilt see them bow and prostrate themselves (in
prayer) seeking Grace from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. On
their faces are their marks (being) the traces of their
prostration. This is their similitude in the Torah; and their
similitude in the Gospel is: like a seed which sends forth its
blade then makes it strong; it then becomes thick and it stands
on its own stem (filling) the sowers with wonder and delight. As
a result it fills the Unbelievers with rage at him. Allah has
promised those among them who believe and do righteous deeds
Forgiveness and a great Reward
