In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[33.1] O Prophet! be careful of (your duty to) Allah and do not comply
with (the wishes of) the unbelievers and the hypocrites; surely Allah is Knowing,
[33.2] And follow what is revealed to you from your Lord; surely
Allah is Aware of what you do;
[33.3] And rely on Allah; and Allah
is sufficient for a Protector.
[33.4] Allah has not made for any man
two hearts within him; nor has He made your wives whose backs you liken to the
backs of your mothers as your mothers, nor has He made those whom you assert to
be your sons your real sons; these are the words of your mouths; and Allah speaks
the truth and He guides to the way.
[33.5] Assert their relationship
to their fathers; this is more equitable with Allah; but if you do not know their
fathers, then they are your brethren in faith and your friends; and there is no
blame on you concerning that in which you made a mistake, but (concerning) that
which your hearts do purposely (blame may rest on you), and Allah is Forgiving,
[33.6] The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than
they have on themselves, and his wives are (as) their mothers; and the possessors
of relationship have the better claim in the ordinance of Allah to inheritance,
one with respect to another, than (other) believers, and (than) those who have
fled (their homes), except that you do some good to your friends; this is written
in the Book. / 7. And when We made a covenant with the prophets and with you,
and with Nuh and Ibrahim and Musa and Isa, son of Marium, and We made with them
a strong covenant
[33.8] That He may question the truthful of their
truth, and He has prepared for the unbelievers a painful punishment.
O you who believe! call to mind the favor of Allah to you when there came down
upon you hosts, so We sent against them a strong wind and hosts, that you saw
not, and Allah is Seeing what you do.
[33.10] When they came upon you
from above you and from below you, and when the eyes turned dull, and the hearts
rose up to the throats, and you began to think diverse thoughts of Allah.
[33.11] There the believers were tried and they were shaken with severe
[33.12] And when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts
was a disease began to say: Allah and His Apostle did not promise us (victory)
but only to deceive.
[33.13] And when a party of them said: O people
of Yasrib! there IS no place to stand for you (here), therefore go back; and a
party of them asked permission of the prophet, saying. Surely our houses are exposed;
and they were not exposed; they only desired to fly away.
if an entry were made upon them from the outlying parts of it, then they were
asked to wage war, they would certainly have done it, and they would not have
stayed in it but a little while.
[33.15] And certainly they had made
a covenant with Allah before, that) they would not turn (their) backs; and Allah's
covenant shall be inquired of.
[33.16] Say: Flight shall not do you
any good if you fly from death or slaughter, and in that case you will not be
allowed to enjoy yourselves but a little.
[33.17] Say: Who is it that
can withhold you from Allah if He intends to do you evil, rather He intends to
show you mercy? And they will not find for themselves besides Allah any guardian
or a helper.
[33.18] Allah knows indeed those among you who hinder
others and those who say to their brethren: Come to us; and they come not to the
fight but a little,
[33.19] Being niggardly with respect to you; but
when fear comes, you will see them looking to you, their eyes rolling like one
swooning because of death; but when the fear is gone they smite you with sharp
tongues, being niggardly of the good things. These have not believed, therefore
Allah has made.their doing naught; and this is easy to Allah.
They think the allies are not gone, and if the allies should come (again) they
would fain be in the deserts with the desert Arabs asking for news about you,
and if they were among you they would not fight save a little.
Certainly you have in the Apostle of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes
in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much.
[33.22] And when
the believers saw the allies, they said: This is what Allah and His Apostle promised
us, and Allah and His Apostle spoke the truth; and it only increased them in faith
[33.23] Of the believers are men who are true to the
covenant which they made with Allah: so of them is he who accomplished his vow,
and of them is he who yet waits, and they have not changed in the least
That Allah may reward the truthful for their truth, and punish the hypocrites
if He please or turn to them (mercifully); surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[33.25] And Allah turned back the unbelievers in their rage; they did not
obtain any advantage, and Allah sufficed the believers in fighting; and Allah
is Strong, Mighty.
[33.26] And He drove down those of the followers
of the Book who backed them from their fortresses and He cast awe into their hearts;
some you killed and you took captive another part.
[33.27] And He made
you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and (to) a land
which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things.
O Prophet! say to your wives: If you desire this world's life and its adornment,
then come, I will give you a provision and allow you to depart a goodly departing
[33.29] And if you desire Allah and His Apostle and the latter abode, then
surely Allah has prepared for the doers of good among you a mighty reward.
[33.30] O wives of the prophet! whoever of you commits an open indecency,
the punishment shall be increased to her doubly; and this IS easy to Allah.
[33.31] And whoever of you is obedient to Allah and His Apostle and does
good, We will give to her her reward doubly, and We have prepared for her an honorable
[33.32] O wives of the Prophet! you are not like any other
of the women; If you will be on your guard, then be not soft in (your) speech,
lest he in whose heart is a disease yearn; and speak a good word.
And stay in your houses and do not display your finery like the displaying of
the ignorance of yore; and keep up prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah
and His Apostle. Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people
of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying.
keep to mind what is recited in your houses of the communications of Allah and
the wisdom; surely Allah is Knower of subtleties, Aware.
the men who submit and the women who submit, and the believing men and the believing
women, and the obeying men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and the
truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women and the humble men and
the humble women, and the almsgiving men and the almsgiving women, and the fasting
men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their private parts and the women
who guard, and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember-- Allah
has prepared for them forgiveness and a mighty reward.
it behoves not a believing man and a believing woman that they should have any
choice in their matter when Allah and His Apostle have decided a matter; and whoever
disobeys Allah and His Apostle, he surely strays off a manifest straying.
[33.37] And when you said to him to whom Allah had shown favor and to whom
you had shown a favor: Keep your wife to yourself and be careful of (your duty
to) Allah; and you concealed in your soul what Allah would bring to light, and
you feared men, and Allah had a greater right that you should fear Him. But when
Zaid had accomplished his want of her, We gave her to you as a wife, so that there
should be no difficulty for the believers in respect of the wives of their adopted
sons, when they have accomplished their want of them; and Allah's command shall
[33.38] There is no harm in the Prophet doing that which
Allah has ordained for him; such has been the course of Allah with respect to
those who have gone before; and the command of Allah is a decree that is made
[33.39] Those who deliver the messages of Allah and fear
Him, and do not fear any one but Allah; and Allah is sufficient to take account.
[33.40] Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Apostle
of Allah and the Last of the prophets; and Allah is cognizant of all things.
[33.41] O you who believe! remember Allah, remembering frequently,
[33.42] And glorify Him morning and evening.
[33.43] He it is
Who sends His blessings on you, and (so do) His angels, that He may bring you
forth out of utter darkness into the light; and He is Merciful to the believers.
[33.44] Their salutation on the day that they meet Him shall be, Peace,
and He has prepared for them an honourable reward.
[33.45] O Prophet!
surely We have sent you as a witness, and as a bearer of good news and as a warner,
[33.46] And as one inviting to Allah by His permission, and as a light-giving
[33.47] And give to the believers the good news that they shall
have a great grace from Allah.
[33.48] And be not compliant to the
unbelievers and the hypocrites, and leave unregarded their annoying talk, and
rely on Allah; and Allah is sufficient as a Protector.
[33.49] O you
who believe! when you marry the believing women, then divorce them before you
touch them, you have in their case no term which you should reckon; so make some
provision for them and send them forth a goodly sending forth.
O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their
dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has
given to you as prisoners of war, and the daughters of your paternal uncles and
the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters of your maternal uncles
and the daughters of your maternal aunts who fled with you; and a believing woman
if she gave herself to the Prophet, if the Prophet desired to marry her-- specially
for you, not for the (rest of) believers; We know what We have ordained for them
concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess in order that
no blame may attach to you; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
You may put off whom you please of them, and you may take to you whom you please,
and whom you desire of those whom you had separated provisionally; no blame attaches
to you; this is most proper, so that their eyes may be cool and they may not grieve,
and that they should be pleased, all of them with what you give them, and Allah
knows what is in your hearts; and Allah is Knowing, Forbearing.
It is not allowed to you to take women afterwards, nor that you should change
them for other wives, though their beauty be pleasing to you, except what your
right hand possesses and Allah is Watchful over all things.
O you who believe! do not enter the houses of the Prophet unless permission is
given to you for a meal, not waiting for its cooking being finished-- but when
you are invited, enter, and when you have taken the food, then disperse-- not
seeking to listen to talk; surely this gives the Prophet trouble, but he forbears
from you, and Allah does not forbear from the truth And when you ask of them any
goods, ask of them from behind a curtain; this is purer for your hearts and (for)
their hearts; and it does not behove you that you should give trouble to the Apostle
of Allah, nor that you should marry his wives after him ever; surely this is grievous
in the sight of Allah.
[33.54] If you do a thing openly or do it in
secret, then surely Allah is Cognizant of all things.
is no blame on them in respect of their fathers, nor their brothers, nor their
brothers' sons, nor their sisters' sons nor their own women, nor of what their
right hands possess; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is a
witness of all things.
[33.56] Surely Allah and His angels bless the
Prophet; O you who believe! call for (Divine) blessings on him and salute him
with a (becoming) salutation.
[33.57] Surely (as for) those who speak
evil things of Allah and His Apostle, Allah has cursed them in this world and
the here after, and He has prepared for them a chastisement bringing disgrace.
[33.58] And those who speak evil things of the believing men and the believing
women without their having earned (it), they are guilty indeed of a false accusation
and a manifest sin.
[33.59] O Prophet! say to your wives and your daughters
and the women of the believers that they let down upon them their over-garments;
this will be more proper, that they may be known, and thus they will not be given
trouble; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[33.60] If the hypocrites
and those in whose hearts is a disease and the agitators in the city do not desist,
We shall most certainly set you over them, then they shall not be your neighbors
in it but for a little while;
[33.61] Cursed: wherever they are found
they shall be seized and murdered, a (horrible) murdering.
(Such has been) the course of Allah with respect to those who have gone before;
and you shall not find any change in the course of Allah.
ask you about the hour; say: The knowledge of it is only with Allah, and what
will make you comprehend that the : hour may be nigh.
Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared for them a burning fire,
[33.65] To abide therein for a long time; they shall not find a protector
or a helper.
[33.66] On the day when their faces shall be turned back
into the fire, they shall say: O would that we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the
[33.67] And they shall say: O our Lord! surely we obeyed our
leaders and our great men, so they led us astray from the path;
O our Lord! give them a double punishment and curse them with a great curse.
[33.69] O you who believe! be not like those who spoke evil things of Musa,
but Allah cleared him of what they said, and he was worthy of regard with Allah.
[33.70] O you who believe! be careful of(your duty to) Allah and speak
the right word,
[33.71] He will put your deeds into a right state for
you, and forgive you your faults; and whoever obeys Allah and His Apostle, he
indeed achieves a mighty success.
[33.72] Surely We offered the trust
to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused to be unfaithful
to it and feared from it, and man has turned unfaithful to it; surely he is unjust,
[33.73] So Allah will chastise the hypocritical men and the
hypocritical women and the polytheistic men and the polytheistic women, and Allah
will turn (mercifully) to the believing women, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
