In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
When the hypocrites come to you, they say: We bear witness that you are most surely
Allah's Apostle; and Allah knows that you are most surely His Apostle, and Allah
bears witness that the hypocrites are surely liars.
[63.2] They make
their oaths a shelter, and thus turn away from Allah's way; surely evil is that
which they do.
[63.3] That is because they believe, then disbelieve,
so a seal is set upon their hearts so that they do not understand.
And when you see them, their persons will please you, and If they speak, you will
listen to their speech; (they are) as if they were big pieces of wood clad with
garments; they think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy, therefore
beware of them; may Allah destroy them, whence are they turned back?
And when it is said to them: Come, the Apostle of Allah will ask forgiveness for
you, they turn back their heads and you may see them turning away while they are
big with pride.
[63.6] It is alike to them whether you beg forgiveness
for them or do not beg forgiveness for them; Allah will never forgive them; surely
Allah does not guide the transgressing people.
[63.7] They it is who
say: Do not spend upon those who are with the Apostle of Allah until they break
up. And Allah's are the treasures of the heavens and the earth, but the hypocrites
do not understand.
[63.8] They say: If we return to Medina, the mighty
will surely drive out the meaner therefrom; and to Allah belongs the might and
to His Apostle and to the believers, but the hypocrites do not know.
O you who believe! let not your wealth, or your children, divert you from the
remembrance of Allah; and whoever does that, these are the losers.
And spend out of what We have given you before death comes to one of you, so that
he should say: My Lord! why didst Thou not respite me to a near term, so that
I should have given alms and been of the doers of good deeds?
And Allah does not respite a soul when its appointed term has come, and Allah
is Aware of what you do.
