059.001 All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth glorifieth Allah, and He is
the Mighty, the Wise.
059.002 He it is Who hath caused those of the People of the Scripture who
disbelieved to go forth from their homes unto the first exile. Ye deemed not that they
would go forth, while they deemed that their strongholds would protect them from
Allah. But Allah reached them from a place whereof they recked not, and cast terror
in their hearts so that they ruined their houses with their own hands and the hands of
the believers. So learn a lesson, O ye who have eyes!
059.003 And if Allah had not decreed migration for them, He verily would have
punished them in the world, and theirs in the Hereafter is the punishment of the Fire.
059.004 That is because they were opposed to Allah and His messenger; and whoso is
opposed to Allah, (for him) verily Allah is stern in reprisal.
059.005 Whatsoever palm-trees ye cut down or left standing on their roots, it was by
Allah's leave, in order that He might confound the evil-livers.
059.006 And that which Allah gave as spoil unto His messenger from them, ye urged
not any horse or riding-camel for the sake thereof, but Allah giveth His messenger
lordship over whom He will. Allah is Able to do all things.
059.007 That which Allah giveth as spoil unto His messenger from the people of the
townships, it is for Allah and His messenger and for the near of kin and the orphans
and the needy and the wayfarer, that it become not a commodity between the rich
among you. And whatsoever the messenger giveth you, take it. And whatsoever he
forbiddeth, abstain (from it). And keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is stern in
059.008 And (it is) for the poor fugitives who have been driven out from their homes
and their belongings, who seek bounty from Allah and help Allah and His messenger.
They are the loyal.
059.009 Those who entered the city and the faith before them love those who flee
unto them for refuge, and find in their breasts no need for that which hath been given
them, but prefer (the fugitives) above themselves though poverty become their lot.
And whoso is saved from his own avarice - such are they who are successful.
059.010 And those who came (into the faith) after them say: Our Lord! Forgive us
and our brethren who were before us in the faith, and place not in our hearts any
rancour toward those who believe. Our Lord! Thou art Full of Pity, Merciful.
059.011 Hast thou not observed those who are hypocrites, (how) they tell their
brethren who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture: If ye are driven out, we
surely will go out with you, and we will never obey anyone against you, and if ye are
attacked we verily will help you. And Allah beareth witness that they verily are liars.
059.012 (For) indeed if they are driven out they go not out with them, and indeed if
they are attacked they help them not, and indeed if they had helped them they would
have turned and fled, and then they would not have been victorious.
059.013 Ye are more awful as a fear in their bosoms than Allah. That is because they
are a folk who understand not.
059.014 They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified villages or from
behind walls. Their adversity among themselves is very great. Ye think of them as a
whole whereas their hearts are divers. That is because they are a folk who have no
059.015 On the likeness of those (who suffered) a short time before them, they taste
the ill-effects of their own conduct, and theirs is painful punishment.
059.016 (And the hypocrites are) on the likeness of the devil when he telleth man to
disbelieve, then, when he disbelieveth saith: Lo! I am quit of thee. Lo! I fear Allah,
the Lord of the Worlds.
059.017 And the consequence for both will be that they are in the Fire, therein
abiding. Such is the reward of evil-doers.
059.018 O ye who believe! Observe your duty to Allah. And let every soul look to
that which it sendeth on before for the morrow. And observe your duty to Allah. Lo!
Allah is Informed of what ye do.
059.019 And be not ye as those who forgot Allah, therefor He caused them to forget
their souls. Such are the evil-doers.
059.020 Not equal are the owners of the Fire and the owners of the Garden. The
owners of the Garden, they are the victorious.
059.021 If We had caused this Qur'an to descend upon a mountain, thou (O
Muhammad) verily hadst seen it humbled, rent asunder by the fear of Allah. Such
similitudes coin We for mankind that haply they may reflect.
059.022 He is Allah, than Whom there is no other God, the Knower of the Invisible
and the Visible. He is the Beneficent, Merciful.
059.023 He is Allah, than Whom there is no other God, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy
One, Peace, the Keeper of Faith, the Guardian, the Majestic, the Compeller, the
Superb. Glorified be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him).
059.024 He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naught, the Fashioner. His are the
most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifieth Him, and He
is the Mighty, the Wise.
