#58. Mujadila *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

1. Allah has indeed heard (and accepted) the statement of the
woman who pleads with thee concerning her husband and carries her
complaint (in prayer) to Allah: and Allah (always) hears the
arguments between both sides among you for Allah hears and sees
(all things)

2. If any men among you divorce their wives by Zihar (calling
them mothers) they cannot be their mothers: none can be their
mothers except those who gave them birth. And in fact they use
words (both) iniquitous and false but truly Allah is one that
blots out (sins) and forgives (again and again)

3. But those who divorce their wives by Zihar then wish to go
back on the words they uttered (it is ordained that such a one)
should free a slave before they touch each other: this are ye
admonished to perform: and Allah is well-acquainted with (all)
that ye do

4. And if any has not (the wherewithal) he should fast for two
months consecutively before they touch each other. But if any is
unable to do so he should feed sixty indigent ones. This that ye
may show your faith in Allah and His Apostle. Those are limits
(set by) Allah. For those who Reject (Him) there is a grievous

5. Those who resist Allah and His Apostle will be humbled to dust
as were those before them: for We have already sent down clear
Signs. And the Unbelievers (will have) a humiliating Penalty.

6. On the Day that Allah will raise them all up (again) and show
them the truth (and meaning) of their conduct. Allah has reckoned
its (value) though they may have forgotten it: for Allah is
Witness to all things

7. Seest thou not that Allah doth know (all) that is in the
heavens and on earth? There is not a secret consultation between
three but He makes the fourth among them nor between five but He
makes the sixth nor between fewer nor more but He is in their
midst wheresoever they be in the end will He tell them the truth
of their conduct on the Day of Judgment for Allah has full
knowledge of all things

8. Turnest thou not thy sight towards those who were forbidden
secret counsels yet revert to that which they were forbidden (to
do)? And they hold secret counsels among themselves for iniquity
and hostility and disobedience to the Apostle. And when they come
to thee they salute thee not as Allah salutes thee (but in
crooked ways): and they say to themselves "Why does not Allah
punish us for our words?" Enough for them is Hell: in it will
they burn and evil is that destination!

9. O ye who believe! when ye hold secret counsel do it not for
iniquity and hostility and disobedience to the Prophet; but do it
for righteousness and self-restraint; and fear Allah to whom ye
shall be brought back

10. Secret counsels are only (inspired) by the Evil One in order
that he may cause grief to the Believers; but he cannot harm them
in the least except as Allah permits; and on Allah let the
Believers put their trust

11. O ye who believe! When ye are told to make room in the
assemblies (spread out and) make room: (Ample) room will Allah
provide for you. And when ye are told to rise up rise up: Allah
will raise up to (suitable) ranks (and degrees) those of you who
believe and who have been granted Knowledge: and, Allah is
well-acquainted with all ye do

12. O ye who believe! W hen ye consult the Apostle in private
spend something in charity before your private consultation. That
will be best for you and most conducive to purity (of conduct).
But if ye find not (the wherewithal) Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most

13. Is it that ye are afraid of spending sums in charity before
your private consultation (with him)? If then ye do not so and
Allah forgives you then (at least) establish regular prayer;
practice regular charity; and obey Allah and His Apostle: and
Allah is well- acquainted will all that ye do.

14. Turnest thou not thy attention to those who turn (in
friendship) to such as have the Wrath of Allah upon them? They
are neither of you nor of them and they swear to falsehood

15. Allah has prepared for them a severe Penalty: evil indeed are
their deeds

16. They have made their oaths a screen (for their misdeeds):
Thus they obstruct (men) from the Path of Allah: therefore shall
they have a humiliating Penalty

17. Of no profit whatever to them against Allah will be their
riches nor their sons: They will be Companions of the Fire to
dwell therein (for aye)!

18. One day will Allah raise them all up (for Judgment): then
will they swear to Him as they swear to you: and they think that
they have something (to stand upon): No indeed! they are but

19. The Evil One has got the better of them: So he has made them
lose the remembrance of Allah. They are the Party of the Evil
One. Truly it is the Party of the Evil One that will perish!

20. Those who resist Allah and His Apostle will be among those
most humiliated

21. Allah has decreed: "It is I and My Apostle who must prevail":
For Allah is One full of strength able to enforce His Will.

22. Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the
Last Day loving those who resist Allah and His Apostle even
though they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or
their kindred. For such He has written Faith in their hearts and
strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. And He will admit
them to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow to dwell therein (for
ever). Allah will be well pleased with them and they with Him.
They are the Party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah that
will achieve Felicity
