In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[48.1] Surely We have given to you a clear victory
Allah may forgive your community their past faults and those to follow and complete
His favor to you and keep you on a right way,
[48.3] And that Allah
might help you with a mighty help.
[48.4] He it is Who sent down tranquillity
into the hearts of the believers that they might have more of faith added to their
faith-- and Allah's are the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is Knowing,
[48.5] That He may cause the believing men and the believing
women to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide therein and remove from
them their evil; and that is a grand achievement with Allah
And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and
the polytheistic men and the polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts
about Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with them and has cursed
them and prepared hell for them, and evil is the resort.
Allah's are the hosts of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.
[48.8] Surely We have sent you as a witness and as a bearer of good news
and as a warner,
[48.9] That you may believe in Allah and His Apostle
and may aid him and revere him; and (that) you may declare His glory, morning
[48.10] Surely those who swear allegiance to you do but
swear allegiance to Allah; the hand of Allah is above their hands. Therefore whoever
breaks (his faith), he breaks it only to the injury of his own soul, and whoever
fulfills what he has covenanted with Allah, He will grant him a mighty reward.
[48.11] Those of the dwellers of the desert who were left behind will say
to you: Our property and our families kept us busy, so ask forgiveness for us.
They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say: Then who can control
anything for you from Allah if He intends to do you harm or if He intends to do
you good; nay, Allah is Aware of what you do:
[48.12] Nay! you rather
thought that the Apostle and the believers would not return to their families
ever, and that was made fairseeming to your hearts and you thought an evil thought
and you were a people doomed to perish.
[48.13] And whoever does not
believe in Allah and His Apostle, then surely We have prepared burning fire for
[48.14] And Allah's is the kingdom. of the heavens
and the earth; He forgives whom He pleases and punishes whom He pleases, and Allah
is Forgiving, Merciful.
[48.15] Those who are left behind will say
when you set forth for the gaining of acquisitions: Allow us (that) we may follow
you. They desire to change the world of Allah. Say: By no means shall you follow
us; thus did Allah say before. But they will say: Nay! you are jealous of us.
Nay! they do not understand but a little.
[48.16] Say to those of the
dwellers of the desert who were left behind: You shall soon be invited (to fight)
against a people possessing mighty prowess; you will fight against them until
they submit; then if you obey, Allah will grant you a good reward; and if you
turn back as you turned back before, He will punish you with a painful punishment.
[48.17] There is no harm in the blind, nor is there any harm in the lame,
nor is there any harm in the sick (if they do not go forth); and whoever obeys
Allah and His Apostle, He will cause him to enter gardens beneath which rivers
flow, and whoever turns back, He will punish him with a painful punishment.
[48.18] Certainly Allah was well pleased with the believers when they swore
allegiance to you under the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, so He
sent down tranquillity on them and rewarded them with a near victory,
And many acquisitions which they will take; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.
Allah promised you many acquisitions which you will take, then He hastened on
this one for you and held back the hands of men from you, and that it may be a
sign for the believers and that He may guide you on a right path.
And others which you have not yet been able to achieve Allah has surely encompassed
them, and Allah has power over all things.
[48.22] And if those who
disbelieve fight with you, they would certainly turn (their) backs, then they
would not find any protector or a helper.
[48.23] Such has been the
course of Allah that has indeed run before, and you shall not find a change in
[48.24] And He it is Who held back their hands from
you and your hands from them in the valley of Mecca after He had given you victory
over them; and Allah is Seeing what you do.
[48.25] It is they who
disbelieved and turned you away from the Sacred Mosque and (turned off) the offering
withheld from arriving at its destined place; and were it not for the believing
men and the believing women, whom, not having known, you might have trodden down,
and thus something hateful might have afflicted you on their account without knowledge--
so that Allah may cause to enter into His mercy whomsoever He pleases; had they
been widely separated one from another, We would surely have punished those who
disbelieved from among them with a painful punishment.
those who disbelieved harbored in their hearts (feelings of) disdain, the disdain
of (the days of) ignorance, but Allah sent down His tranquillity on His Apostle
and on the believers, and made them keep the word of guarding (against evil),
and they were entitled to it and worthy of it; and Allah is Cognizant of all things.
[48.27] Certainly Allah had shown to His Apostle the vision with truth:
you shall most certainly enter the Sacred Mosque, if Allah pleases, in security,
(some) having their heads shaved and (others) having their hair cut, you shall
not fear, but He knows what you do not know, so He brought about a near victory
[48.28] He it is Who sent His Apostle with the guidance
and the true religion that He may make it prevail over all the religions; and
Allah is enough for a witness.
[48.29] Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah,
and those with him are firm of heart against the unbelievers, compassionate among
themselves; you will see them bowing down, prostrating themselves, seeking grace
from Allah and pleasure; their marks are in their faces because of the effect
of prostration; that is their description in the Taurat and their description
in the Injeel; like as seed-produce that puts forth its sprout, then strengthens
it, so it becomes stout and stands firmly on its stem, delighting the sowers that
He may enrage the unbelievers on account of them; Allah has promised those among
them who believe and do good, forgiveness and a great reward.
