#49. Hujuraath *SURAH*



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful




1. O ye who believe! put not yourselves forward before Allah and
His Apostle: But fear Allah: for Allah is He who hears and knows
all things

2. O ye who believe! raise not your voices above the voice of the
Prophet nor speak aloud to him in talk as ye may speak aloud to
one another lest your deeds become vain and ye perceive not

3. Those that lower their voice in the presence of Allah's
Apostle their hearts has Allah tested for piety: for them is
Forgiveness and a great Reward

4. Those who shout out to thee from without the Inner Apartments
most of them lack understanding

5. If only they had patience until thou couldst come out to them
it would be best for them: but Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most
Merciful

6. O ye who believe! if a wicked person comes to you with any
news ascertain the truth lest ye harm people unwittingly and
afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done

7. And know that among you is Allah's Apostle: were he in many
matters to follow your (wishes) ye would certainly fall into
misfortune: but Allah has endeared the Faith to you and has made
it beautiful in your hearts and He has made hateful to you
unbelief wickedness and rebellion: such indeed are those who walk
in righteousness

8. A grace and favor from Allah; and Allah is full of Knowledge
and Wisdom

9. If two parties among the Believers fall into a quarrel make ye
peace between them: but if one of them transgresses beyond bounds
against the other then fight ye (all) against the one that
transgresses until it complies with the command of Allah; but if
it complies then make peace between them with justice and be
fair: for Allah loves those who are fair (and just)

10. The believers are but a single Brotherhood: So make peace and
reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers: And fear
Allah that ye may receive Mercy

11. O ye who believe! let not some men among you laugh at others:
it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let
some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are
better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each
other nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming
is a name connoting wickedness (to be used of one) after he has
believed: And those who do not desist are (Indeed) doing wrong

12. O ye who believe! avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for
suspicion in some cases is a sin: and spy not on each other nor
speak ill of each other behind their backs. Would any of you like
to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay ye would abhor it but
fear Allah: for Allah is Oft-Returning Most Merciful

13. O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and
a female and made you into nations and tribes that ye may know
each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most
honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most
righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well
acquainted (with all things).

14. The desert Arabs say "We believe." Say "Ye have no faith; but
ye (only) say `We have submitted our wills to Allah.' For not yet
has Faith entered your hearts. But if ye obey Allah and His
Apostle He will not belittle aught of your deeds: for Allah is
Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful."

15. Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His
Apostle and have never since doubted but have striven with their
belongings and their persons in the Cause of Allah: Such are the
sincere ones

16. Say: "what! Will ye instruct Allah about your Religion?" but
Allah knows all that is in the heavens and on earth: He has full
knowledge of all things

17. They impress on thee as favor that they have embraced Islam.
Say "Count not your Islam as a favor upon me: Nay Allah has
conferred a favor upon you that He has guided you to the Faith if
ye be true and sincere

18. "Verily Allah knows the secrets of the heavens and the earth:
and Allah sees well all that ye do."
