In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[58.1] Allah indeed knows the plea of her who pleads with you about
her husband and complains to Allah, and Allah knows the contentions of both of
you; surely Allah is Hearing, Seeing.
[58.2] (As for) those of you
who put away their wives by likening their backs to the backs of their mothers,
they are not their mothers; their mothers are no others than those who gave them
birth; and most surely they utter a hateful word and a falsehood and most surely
Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving.
[58.3] And (as for) those who put away
their wives by likening their backs to the backs of their mothers then would recall
what they said, they should free a captive before they touch each other; to that
you are admonished (to conform); and Allah is Aware of what you do.
But whoever has not the means, let him fast for two months successively before
they touch each other; then as for him who is not able, let him feed sixty needy
ones; that is in order that you may have faith in Allah and His Apostle, and these
are Allah's limits, and the unbelievers shall have a painful punishment.
Surely those who act in opposition to Allah and His Apostle shall be laid down
prostrate as those before them were laid down prostrate; and indeed We have revealed
clear communications, and the unbelievers shall have an abasing chastisement.
[58.6] On the day when Allah will raise them up all together, then inform
them of what they did: Allah has recorded it while they have forgotten it; and
Allah is a witness of all things.
[58.7] Do you not see that Allah
knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth? Nowhere is there
a secret counsel between three persons but He is the fourth of them, nor (between)
five but He is the sixth of them, nor less than that nor more but He is with them
wheresoever they are; then He will inform them of what they did on the day of
resurrection: surely Allah is Cognizant of all things.
you not seen those who are forbidden secret counsels, then they return to what
they are forbidden, and they hold secret counsels for sin and revolt and disobedience
to the Apostle, and when they come to you they greet you with a greeting with
which Allah does not greet you, and they say in themselves: Why does not Allah
punish us for what we say? Hell is enough for them; they shall enter it, and evil
is the resort.
[58.9] O you who believe! when you confer together in
private, do not give to each other counsel of sin and revolt and disobedience
to the Apostle, and give to each other counsel of goodness and guarding (against
evil); and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, to Whom you shall be gathered together.
[58.10] Secret counsels are only (the work) of the Shaitan that he may
cause to grieve those who believe, and he cannot hurt them in the least except
with Allah's permission, and on Allah let the believers rely.
O you who believe! when it is said to you, Make room in (your) assemblies, then
make ample room, Allah will give you ample, and when it is said: Rise up, then
rise up. Allah will exalt those of you who believe, and those who are given knowledge,
in high degrees; and Allah is Aware of what you do.
[58.12] O you who
believe! when you consult the Apostle, then offer something in charity before
your consultation; that is better for you and purer; but if you do not find, then
surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[58.13] Do you fear that you will
not (be able to) give in charity before your consultation? So when you do not
do it and Allah has turned to you (mercifully), then keep up prayer and pay the
poor-rate and obey Allah and His Apostle; and Allah is Aware of what you do.
[58.14] Have you not seen those who befriend a people with whom Allah is
wroth? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear falsely while they
[58.15] Allah has prepared for them a severe punishment; surely
what they do is evil.
[58.16] They make their oaths to serve as a cover
so they turn away from Allah's way; therefore they shall have an abasing chastisement.
[58.17] Neither their wealth nor their children shall avail them aught
against Allah; they are the inmates of the fire, therein they shall abide.
[58.18] On the day that Allah will raise them up all, then they will swear
to Him as they swear to you, and they think that they have something; now surely
they are the liars.
[58.19] The Shaitan has gained the mastery over
them, so he has made them forget the remembrance of Allah; they are the Shaitan's
party; now surely the Shaitan's party are the losers.
(as for) those who are in opposition to Allah and His Apostle; they shall be among
the most abased.
[58.21] Allah has written down: I will most certainly
prevail, I and My apostles; surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.
You shall not find a people who believe in Allah and the latter day befriending
those who act in opposition to Allah and His Apostle, even though they were their
(own) fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kinsfolk; these are
they into whose hearts He has impressed faith, and whom He has strengthened with
an inspiration from Him: and He will cause them to enter gardens beneath which
rivers flow, abiding therein; Allah is well-pleased with them and they are well-pleased
with Him these are Allah's party: now surely the party of Allah are the successful
