#59. Hashr *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

1. Whatever is in the heavens and on earth let it declare the
Praises and Glory of Allah: for He is the Exalted in Might the

2. It is He who got out the Unbelievers among the People of the
Book from their homes at the first gathering (of the forces).
Little did ye think that they would get out: and they thought
that their fortresses would defend them from Allah! but the
(wrath of) Allah came to them from quarters from which they
little expected (it) and cast terror into their hearts so that
they destroyed their dwellings by their own hands and the hands
of the Believers. Take warning then o ye with eyes (to see)!

3. And had it not been that Allah has decreed banishment for them
He would certainly have punished them in this world: and in the
Hereafter they shall (certainly) have the Punishment of the Fire

4. That is because they resisted Allah and His Apostle: and if
anyone resists. Allah verily Allah is severe in Punishment

5. Whether ye cut down (o ye Muslims!) the tender palm-trees or
ye left them standing on their roots it was by leave of Allah and
in order that He might cover with shame the rebellious

6. What Allah has bestowed on His Apostle (and taken away) from
them for this ye made no expedition with either cavalry or
camelry: but Allah gives power to His apostles over any He
pleases: and Allah has power over all things.

7. What Allah has bestowed on His Apostle (and taken away) from
the people of the townships belongs to Allah to His Apostle and
to kindred and orphans the needy and the wayfarer; in order that
it may not (Merely) make a circuit between the wealth among you.
So take what the Apostle assigns to you and deny yourselves that
which he withholds from you. And fear Allah; for Allah is strict
in Punishment

8. (Some part is due) to the indigent Muhajirs those who were
expelled from their homes and their property while seeking Grace
from Allah and (His) Good pleasure and aiding Allah and His
Apostle: such are indeed the sincere ones

9. But those who before them had homes (in Medina) and had
adopted the Faith show their affection to such as came to them
for refuge and entertain no desire in their hearts for things
given to the (latter) but give them preference over themselves
even though poverty was their (own lot). And those saved from the
covetousness of their own souls they are the ones that achieve

10. And those who came after them say: "Our Lord! Forgive us and
our brethren who came before us into the Faith and leave not in
our hearts rancor (or sense of injury) against those who have
believed our Lord! Thou art indeed Full of Kindness Most

11. Hast thou not observed the Hypocrites say to their
misbelieving brethren among the People of the Book? "If ye are
expelled We too will go out with you and we will never hearken to
anyone in your affair; and if ye are attacked (in fight) we will
help you." But Allah is witness that they are indeed liars

12. If they are expelled never will they go out with them; and if
they are attacked (in fight) they will never help them; and if
they do help them they will turn their backs; so they will
receive no help

13. Of a truth ye are stronger (than they) because of the terror
in their hearts (sent) by Allah. This is because they are men
devoid of understanding

14. They will not fight you (even) together except in fortified
townships or from behind walls. Strong is their fighting (spirit)
amongst themselves thou wouldst think they were united but their
hearts are divided: that is because they are a people devoid of

15. Like those who lately preceded them they have tasted the evil
result of their conduct and (in the Hereafter there is) for them
a grievous Penalty

16. (Their allies deceived them) like the Evil One when he says
to man "Deny Allah"; but when (man) denies Allah (the Evil One)
says "I am free of thee: I do fear Allah the Lord of the Worlds!"

17. The end of both will be that they will go into the Fire
dwelling therein for ever. Such is the reward of wrong-doers

18. O ye who believe! Fear Allah and let every soul look to what
(provision) he has sent forth for the morrow. Yea fear Allah: for
Allah is well-acquainted with (all) they ye do

19. And be ye not like those who forget Allah; and He made them
forget their own souls! such are the rebellious transgressors!

20. Not equal are the Companions of the Fire and the Companions
of the Garden it is the Companions of the Garden that will
achieve Felicity

21. Had We sent down this Qur'an on a mountain verily thou would
have seen it humble itself and cleave asunder for fear of Allah
such are the similitudes which We propound to men that they may

22. Allah is He than whom there is no other god Who knows (all
things) both secret and open; He Most Gracious Most Merciful.

23. Allah is He than whom there is no other god the sovereign the
Holy One the Source of Peace (and Perfection). The Guardian of
Faith the Preserver of Safety the Exalted in Might the
Irresistible the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (high is He) above the
partners they attribute to Him

24. He is Allah the Creator the Evolver the Bestower of Forms (or
colors). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: Whatever is in
the heavens and on earth doth declare His Praises and Glory: and
He is the exalted in Might the Wise
