Quran Chapter 3


In the name of Allah, the Kind, the Caring

 A. L. M

 Allah. There is no other god but Him, the Living, the Eternal

 He revealed to you the Book, with the Truth, confirming the previous messages. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel

 In the past, as guidance for people. And He revealed the discernment. Those who reject Allah‘s communications will be severely punished. Allah is the Almighty, the Avenger

 Nothing on earth or in heaven is hidden from Allah

 He forms you in the wombs as He wills. There’s no god but He, the Almighty, the Wise

 He revealed the Book to you. Some of its verses are precise in meaning; they are the foundation of the Book, while others are metaphorical. People with deviated hearts pursue the metaphorical, seeking confusion and interpretations. But none knows its interpretation except Allah and those firmly grounded in knowledge say, “We believe in it; all is from our Lord.” Only those who understand think

 “Our Lord: don’t let our hearts waver after You’ve guided us, and have mercy on us. You’re the Giver

“Our Lord, You’ll gather people for a Day of which there is no doubt.” Allah never breaks His promise

 As for unbelievers: their wealth and their children won’t benefit them against Allah. These are fuel for the Fire

 Such was the behavior of Pharaoh’s people and those before them. They rejected Our revelations, so Allah seized them for their sins. Allah is severe in retribution

 Say to the unbelievers: “You’ll be defeated and gathered in Hell — a bad place

 There was a sign for you in the two parties that met. One side was fighting in Allah’s path, and the other in unbelief. They saw them twice as many, with their own eyes. Allah strengthens with His help whom He wills. There is a lesson here for those with insight

 The love of desires was made attractive to people: women, children, piles upon piles of gold and silver, branded horses, livestock, and farmland. These are the delights of this life, but Allah has the best place of return

 Say, “Shall I tell you about something better than this? The righteous: their Lord will give them gardens under which rivers flow, where they’ll stay forever, and purified spouses, and the acceptance of Allah.” Allah watches over His worshipers

 Those who say, “Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us our sins, and protect us from the suffering of the Fire

 The patient, the truthful, the obedient, the charitable, the seekers of forgiveness at dawn

 Allah testifies that there is no god besides Him, as do the angels and those who use knowledge to uphold justice. There is no god but He, the Almighty and Wise

 Religion with Allah is Submission. Those who received the Scriptures differed only after knowledge had reached them, because of the envy that prevailed among them. Whoever rejects Allah’s revelations – Allah is quick in settling accounts

 If they argue with you, say, “I submitted to Allah, and so did my followers.” Ask those who received the Scripture and the unlearned, “Did you submit?” If they submit, they’ll be guided. But if they turn away: your responsibility is to convey. Allah is always watchful over His beings

 Those who reject Allah’s verses, unjustly kill the prophets, and kill the advocates of justice: promise them a painful punishment

 Their deeds will have no value in this world or the Hereafter, and they’ll have no helper

 Haven’t you seen those who received a part of the Book? They were referred to Allah’s Book to judge between them. One group turned away, stubbornly resisting

 This is because they said, “Fire will only touch us for a few days.” The lies they invented about their religion deceived them

 How about when We gather them for a Day when there’s no doubt, and every soul is repaid as it deserves, and they won’t be mistreated

 Say, “Allah, Master of Sovereignty. You give sovereignty to whom you will, and you take away sovereignty from whom you will. You honor whom you will, and You humiliate whom you will. All goodness is in Your hand. You are capable of everything

“You merge the night with the day, and You merge the day with the night. You bring the living out of the dead, and You bring the dead out of the living. You give unlimited to whom You will

 Believers shouldn’t take unbelievers instead of believers as allies. Those who do so have nothing to do with Allah — unless you carefully protect yourselves from them. Allah warns you against Himself. The final destination is to Allah

 Say, “Whether you hide what’s in your hearts, or whether you reveal it, Allah knows it.” He knows everything in the heavens and on earth. Allah is capable of anything

 The Day when every soul will find all the good it did present. As for the evil it did, it will wish there was a great distance between them. Allah warns you of Himself. Allah is Kind to worshipers

 Say, “If you love Allah, follow me, and Allah will love you and forgive you your sins.” Allah is Forgiving and Gracious

 Say, “Obey Allah and obey the Messenger.” If they turn away — Allah doesn’t love the unbelievers

 Allah chose Adam, Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of Imran over all humankind

 Offspring, one of the other. Allah is Hearer and Knower

 When Imran’s wife said, “My Lord, I vow to dedicate what’s in my womb to Your service, so accept it from me. You’re the Listener and Knower

 When she gave birth, she said, “My Lord, I delivered a female,” and Allah knew what she delivered, “the male isn’t like the female, and I named her Mary, and I placed her and her children under Your protection from Satan the outcast

 Her Lord kindly welcomed her, gave her a beautiful upbringing, and entrusted her to the care of Zechariah. Whenever Zechariah visited her in the prayer room, he found fruit all around her. He asked, “Mary, where did these come from?” She replied, “It’s from Allah; Allah gives to whom He wills without counting

Aali Imran

 There, Zechariah prayed to his Lord: “My Lord, give me a righteous child. You’re the One who hears prayers

 Then the angels called out to him, as he stood praying in the prayer room: “Allah gives you the good news of John, confirming a word from Allah, honorable and moral, and a prophet among the righteous

 He said, “My Lord, how can I have a son, now that I reached old age, and my wife is infertile?” He replied: “It will be so. Allah does whatever He will

 He said, “My Lord, give me a sign.” He replied: “Your sign is this: For three days, you won’t speak to people, except by gestures. And remember your Lord often and praise evening and morning

 The angels said, “O Mary, Allah chose you, and He purified you. He chose you from among all the women of the world

“O Mary, be devoted to your Lord, bow down, and kneel with those who kneel

 These are reports of the invisible, which We reveal to you. You weren’t with them when they threw lots to determine who would become Mary’s guardian, and you weren’t with them when they argued

 The angels said, “O Mary, Allah gives you the good news of a Word from Him. His name is Jesus Christ, son of Mary, distinguished in this world and in the next, and among the nearest

 He will speak to people from the crib and into adulthood, and he will be righteous

 She said, “My Lord, how can I have a child when no man has touched me?” He replied: “It will be so. Allah creates whatever He wills. When He decides something, He says to it: ‘Be!’ and it becomes

 And He will teach him the Scripture and wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel

 And a messenger to the Israelites: “I come to you with miracles from your Lord. I make a clay bird, then I blow into it, and it becomes a bird, with Allah’s approval. And I heal the blind and the lepers, and I revive the dead, with Allah’s approval. And I prophesy what you eat and what you store in your homes. There is a sign for you here: if you’re believers

“And I confirm what was before me in the Torah, and I make legal certain things that were illegal. I come to you with a sign from your Lord. So fear Allah and obey me

“Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. This is a straight path

 When Jesus felt their rejection, he said, “Who are my helpers for Allah’s sake?” The disciples replied, “We are Allah’s helpers. We believe in Allah and testify that we’re submitters

 “Our Lord, we believe in what You revealed, and we follow the Messenger, so include us among the witnesses

 They made plans, and Allah made plans, but Allah is the Best Planner

 Allah said, “O Jesus, I will receive you, raise you to Me, and rid you of the deniers. And I will make your followers above the unbelievers until Resurrection Day. Then you’ll return to Me, and I’ll judge your disputes between you

 As for those who reject, I will punish them severely in this life and the next, and they’ll have no helpers

 As for those who believe and do good deeds, He will fully reward them. Allah doesn’t love the unjust

 This is what We recite to you from the verses and the Wise Reminder

 In the sight of Allah, Jesus is like Adam: He created him from dust, then He said to him, “Be!” and he became

 This is the truth from your Lord, so don’t be of those who doubt

 Whoever argues with you about him, once you received the knowledge, say, “Come, let’s gather our children and your children, our women and your women, and ourselves and yourselves, then let’s call down Allah’s curse on the liars

 This is the true story: there’s no other god but Allah. Allah is the Mighty, the Wise

 If they turn away — Allah knows the corrupters

 Say, “O People of the Bible, let’s agree on common terms: we worship none but Allah, we associate nothing with Him, and we never take anyone as lord besides Allah.” If they refuse, say, “Witness that we’re Submitters

 O Bible-People: why do you argue about Abraham when the Torah and the Gospel were revealed only after him? Don’t you think

 Here you are: arguing about things you know, but why do you argue about things you don’t know? Allah knows, and you don’t know

 Abraham was neither Jewish nor Christian, but he was monotheistic, Muslim. And he wasn’t an associator

 The people closest to Abraham are those who followed him, and this Prophet, and those who believe. Allah is the Protector of believers

 Some Bible-People would like to mislead you. But they mislead none but themselves, and they don’t know it

. O Bible-People: why do you reject Allah’s revelations, even though you’re witnessing

. O Bible-People: why do you mix truth with falsehood, and you deliberately conceal the truth

. Some Bible-People say, “Believe what was revealed to the believers during the day, and reject it at the day’s end, so that they come back

. Trust only those who follow your religion. Say, “Allah’s guidance is the guidance. If someone receives similarly to what you received, or they dispute with you before your Lord, say, “All grace is in Allah’s hand; He gives it to whoever wants it. Allah is Generous and Aware

. He chooses for His mercy whom He wills. Allah is the Most Gracious, the Greatest

. Among the Scripture-People is he, who, if you trust him with a treasure, he will return it to you. And among them is he, who, if you trust him with a single coin, he won’t return it to you; unless you pursue him. That’s because they say, “We have no obligation to the Gentiles.” They tell lies about Allah, and they know it very well

. Surely, He who fulfills his obligations and is careful — Allah loves the righteous

. Those who exchange Allah’s covenant and their vows for a small price will have no share in the Hereafter. Allah won’t speak to them, nor will He look at them on Resurrection Day, nor will He purify them. They’ll have a painful punishment

. Some of them twist the Scripture with their tongues, to make you think that it’s Scripture — when it’s not Scripture. And they say, “This is from Allah,” when it’s not from Allah. They deliberately tell lies about Allah

. No one to whom Allah gave Scripture, judgment, and prophethood would say to people: “Worship me instead of Allah.” Rather, “Be people of the Lord, according to the Scripture you teach, and the teachings you study

. Nor would he instruct you to take the angels and the prophets as lords. Would he instruct you in infidelity after your submission

. Allah received the covenant from the prophets, “Since I gave you Scripture and wisdom. When a messenger comes to you confirming what you have, you must believe in him and support him.” He said, “Do you confirm My covenant and accept it?” They answered, “We confirm it.” He said, “So be witnesses, and I’m a witness with you

82. Whoever turns away after this — these are the disobedient

. Do they seek anything other than Allah’s religion, when all that’s in the heavens and on earth submits to Him, willingly or unwillingly — and to Him, they’ll be returned

. Say, “We believe in Allah, and in what was revealed to us; and in what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes; and in what their Lord gave Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets. We make no distinction between any of them. And we’re submissive to Him

. Whoever seeks a religion other than Submission: it won’t be accepted from him; and in the Hereafter, he’ll be among the losers

. Why should Allah guide those who disbelieve after they believed, and they witnessed that the Messenger is genuine, and clear evidence came to them? Allah doesn’t guide the wrongdoers

. These: their punishment is that the curse of Allah, of the angels, and of humanity falls on them

. They’ll remain under it forever. Their suffering won’t be eased, and they won’t be relieved

. Except those who later repent and reform. Allah is the Forgiver, the Merciful

. As for those who disbelieve after believing, then plunge deeper into disbelief: their repentance won’t be accepted — these are the misguided

. As for those who disbelieve and die disbelieving: even the earth full of gold won’t be accepted from one of them — if he offered it as a ransom. These will suffer a painful punishment, and they’ll have no helpers

. You’ll achieve kindness only when you give of what you love. Whatever you give, Allah knows it

. All food was allowed to the Israelites, except what Israel forbade for themselves before the revelation of the Torah. Say, “Bring the Torah and read it — if you speak the truth

. Whoever after this fabricates lies against Allah — these are the evildoers

. Say, “Allah spoke the truth. So follow the faith of Abraham, the Monotheist, who wasn’t an associator

96. The first house founded for humanity is in Bekkah — full of blessings and guidance for people

. There are clear signs in it — the station of Abraham. Whoever enters it attains security. Pilgrimage to the House is a duty for people before Allah, for those who can make the journey. But whoever refuses — Allah is Independent of all creation

. Say, “O People of the Scripture: Why do you reject Allah’s revelations, when Allah is Witness to what you do

. Say, “O people of the Scripture: Why do you prevent the believers from following Allah’s path, and you seek to distort it, even when you’re witnesses? Allah isn’t unaware of what you do

. O you who believe: if you obey any denomination of those who received the Scripture, they’ll turn you, after your belief, into unbelievers

. How could you possibly disbelieve, when Allah’s revelations are being recited to you, and His Messenger is among you? Whoever clings firmly to Allah will be guided in a straight path

. O you who believe: revere Allah with due reverence, and die only in Submission

. And hold fast to Allah’s rope, all together, and let nothing separate you. And think of Allah’s favor for you. When you were enemies, He united your hearts, and by His grace, you became brothers. You were on the brink of a fiery pit, and He saved you from it. Thus, Allah makes His signs known to you, so that you may be guided

. Let there be a group of you calling to virtue, advocating righteousness, and deterring from evil. These are the successful

. Don’t be like those who disputed and became divided after clear signs reached them. These will be severely punished

. The Day when faces brighten and faces gloom. Those with gloomy faces: “Did you disbelieve after believing?” Taste the punishment for your disbelief

. Those with brightened faces are in Allah’s care, staying in it forever

. These are Allah’s revelations. We present them to you in all truth. Allah wants no injustice for people

. All that’s in the heavens and on earth belongs to Allah. Allah determines the outcome of events

. You’re the best community that ever emerged for humanity: You advocate what’s moral, forbid what’s immoral, and believe in Allah. If the Bible-People had believed, it would’ve been better for them. Some of them are faithful, but most of them are sinners

. They won’t harm you beyond insulting you. And if they fight you, they’ll turn around and flee, and they won’t be helped

. They’ll be humiliated wherever they go, except by rope from Allah and rope from people. They incurred the wrath of Allah, and they were stricken by misery. It’s because they rejected Allah’s revelations and unjustly killed the prophets. It’s because they rebelled and committed aggression

. They aren’t alike: there’s an upright community among the Bible-People. They read Allah’s revelations throughout the night, and they bow down

. They believe in Allah and the Last Day, advocate righteousness, forbid evil, and do good deeds quickly. These are of the righteous

. Whatever good they do won’t go unrewarded. Allah knows the righteous

. As for the unbelievers, neither their wealth nor their children will benefit them in the least before Allah. These are the prisoners of the Fire, where they’ll stay forever

. What they spend in this life is like an icy wind that strikes the crops of people who mistreated themselves, and it destroys it. Allah didn’t mistreat them, but they mistreated themselves

. O you who believe: Don’t associate with outsiders who spare no effort to ruin you. They love to see you suffer. Hatred is evident in what they say, but what their hearts conceal is worse. We made the communications clear to you — if you understand

. There you are! You love them, but they don’t love you, and you believe in the whole Book. When they meet you, they say, “We believe.” But when they’re alone, they bite their fingertips in rage at you. Say, “Die in your rage! Allah knows the deepest feelings

. When you have a good time, they’re sad. And when you have a hard time, they’re glad. But as long as you’re righteous and patient, their plans won’t harm you. Allah understands what they do

. Remember that morning, when you left your family to assign battle positions to believers. Allah is Listener and Knower

. When two groups of you almost gave up, but Allah was their Protector. So let the believers put their trust in Allah

. Allah gave you victory at Badr when you were weak. Be aware of Allah, so that you may be thankful

. When you said to the believers, “Is it not enough that your Lord reinforced you with three thousand angels sent down

. Of course. If you persevere and pay attention, and they suddenly attack you, your Lord will reinforce you with five thousand trained angels

. Allah made it a message of hope for you, to reassure you. There’s no victory except from Allah, the Almighty, the Wise

. To destroy a flank of unbelievers, or to subdue them, so that they withdraw disappointed

. It’s not your business whether He forgives or punishes them. They are wrongdoers

. All that’s in the heavens and on earth belongs to Allah. He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He wills. Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Kind

. O you who believe: receive no compound interest, and fear Allah: so that you may prosper

. Protect yourselves from the Fire, prepared for the unbelievers

. Obey Allah and the Messenger, so that you may be treated with kindness

. Hurry up to your Lord’s forgiveness, and Paradise as vast as the heavens and the earth — prepared for the cautious

. Those who give in prosperity and adversity, and hold back anger, and forgive people. Allah loves the good-doers

. And those who, when they commit an indecency or wrong themselves, remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their sins — can anyone other than Allah forgive sins? And they don’t knowingly continue to commit wrongdoing

. Their reward is the forgiveness of their Lord, and Gardens under which rivers flow, to remain there forever. What a wonderful reward for the workers

. Many societies passed before you. So travel the earth and observe the plight of the deniers

. This is a proclamation to humanity; and guidance and advice to the righteous

. Don’t be discouraged or be sad. You are the superiors — if you’re believers

. If you were hurt, so were the others. Such days We alternate between people, so that Allah may discern the believers and receive witnesses from you. Allah doesn’t love the wrongdoers

. So that Allah may refine the believers and defeat the unbelievers

. Or do you expect to enter Paradise, before Allah recognizes those of you who strive, and before He recognizes those who are patient

. You wished for death before facing it. Now you’ve seen it with your own eyes

. Muhammad is no more than a messenger. Many messengers came and went before him. If he dies or is killed, will you turn back? Whoever turns back won’t harm Allah. And Allah will reward the grateful

. No one can die without Allah’s permission — at a predetermined time. Whoever wants the reward of this world, We’ll give him some of it. And whoever wants the reward of the Hereafter, We’ll give him some of it. And We’ll reward the appreciative

. How many a prophet fought alongside him many godly people? They didn’t falter for what afflicted them in Allah’s path, nor did they weaken, nor did they give in. Allah loves the patient

. They prayed: “Our Lord, forgive our sins and our excesses in our conduct, and strengthen our footing, and help us against the unbelievers

Aali Imran

. So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the excellent reward of the Hereafter. Allah loves those who strive to do good

. O you who believe! If you obey the unbelievers, they’ll turn you away, and you’ll become losers again

150. Allah is your Protector, and He’s the Best of helpers

. We will strike terror into the hearts of the unbelievers — because they join partners with Allah — a practice He never permitted. Their home is the Fire. The home of wrongdoers is misery

. Allah fulfilled His promise to you — when you defeated them by His permission. Then you lost courage, disputed, and disobeyed the command, even after He showed you what you desired. Some of you want this world, and some of you want the afterlife. Then He turned you away from them, to put you to the test. But He forgave you. Allah is Gracious to believers

. While you were climbing, not caring about anyone, the Messenger called you from behind. Then He gave you great anguish, so that you wouldn’t grieve for your loss and afflictions. Allah is aware of what you do

. Then, after the setback, He gave you tranquility. Drowsiness overcame some of you, while others cared only for themselves, harboring false thoughts about Allah — thoughts of ignorance — saying, “Is anything up to us?” Say, “Everything is up to Allah.” They hide in themselves what they don’t reveal to you. And they say, “If it were up to us, none of us would have been killed here.” Say, “Even if you had stayed at home, those who were destined to be killed would’ve marched into their deathbeds.” That’s how Allah tests what’s in you, and He purifies what’s in your hearts. Allah knows the deepest feelings

. Those of you who fled on the day the two armies met: Satan made them backslide for what they did. But Allah forgave them. Allah is the Forgiving, the Gentle

. O you who believe: don’t be like those unbelievers who say of their brethren who marched in the land, or went on the offensive: “If they had stayed with us, they wouldn’t have died or been killed.” Thus, Allah sows regret in their hearts. Allah gives life and causes death. Allah sees everything you do

. Whether you’re killed in Allah’s way, or you die, Allah’s forgiveness and mercy are better than what they hoard

158. Whether you die or are killed, you’ll be gathered before Allah

. It’s by Allah’s grace that you dealt kindly with them. If you had been rude and hard-hearted, they would have deserted you. So forgive them, ask forgiveness for them, and consult them in the handling of affairs. Once you’ve made your decision, put your trust in Allah. Allah loves those who trust

. If Allah helps you, none can defeat you. But if He fails you, who’ll be your helper? Believers put their trust in Allah

. A prophet doesn’t act dishonestly. Everyone who acts dishonestly will bring his dishonesty on Resurrection Day. Then everyone will receive their due in full, and they won’t be mistreated

. Can one who seeks Allah’s approval be compared to one who earned Allah’s wrath and whose destination is Hell? What a miserable end

. They have different ranks with Allah. Allah sees what they do

. Allah favored the believers; when He sent them a messenger from among them, reciting His verses to them, purifying them, and teaching them the Book and Wisdom. They were misguided before that

. And when a tragedy befell you, having inflicted twice as much, you said, “Where did this come from?” Say, “You brought it on yourselves.” Allah has power over all things

. What befell you on the day the two armies met was according to Allah’s will; so that believers may know

. And so that the hypocrites may know. When they were told, “Come and fight in Allah’s way — or defend yourselves.” They replied, “If we knew how to fight, we would have followed you.” That day, they were closer to unbelief than to faith, saying with their mouths what wasn’t in their hearts. But Allah knows what they hide

. Those who said about their brothers, when they stayed behind, “If they had obeyed us, they wouldn’t have been killed.” Say, “Avoid your death, if you speak the truth

. Don’t consider those who were killed in Allah’s way as dead. On the contrary, they’re alive, with their Lord, well provided for

. Delighted in the grace that Allah bestowed upon them, and happy for those who didn’t join them yet — that they have nothing to fear, and they don’t need to be sad

. Celebrating Allah’s gifts and favors. Allah won’t waste the reward of believers

. Those who responded to Allah and the Messenger, despite the persecution they endured — the virtuous and righteous among them will receive a great reward

. When they were told: “People have mobilized against you, so fear them.” But their faith grew stronger, and they said, “Allah is enough for us. What an excellent Protector

. So they returned with Allah’s blessing and favor, unharmed. They pursued what pleases Allah. Allah is Very Gracious

. That was Satan, instilling fear in his allies. So don’t fear them, but fear Me: if you’re believers

. Don’t be saddened by those who rush into unbelief. They won’t harm Allah a bit. Allah wants to give them no share in the Hereafter. They’ll suffer an awful punishment

. Those who exchange faith for unbelief can’t harm Allah at all. They’ll suffer a painful punishment

. The unbelievers shouldn’t assume that We delay them for their own good. On the contrary, We delay them, so that they may increase their sins. They’ll suffer a humiliating punishment

. Allah wouldn’t leave the believers as you are — until He has separated the insincere from the sincere. Nor would Allah inform you of the unseen, but Allah chooses from among His messengers whom He will. So believe in Allah and His messengers. If you believe and protect yourselves, you’ll have a great reward

. Those who are stingy with what Allah gave them of His favor shouldn’t consider it good for them. On the contrary, it’s bad for them. Their hoardings will surround them on Resurrection Day. To Allah belongs the inheritance of Heavens and Earth. And Allah is Aware of what they do

. Allah heard the words of those who said, “Allah is poor, and we’re rich.” We’ll write down what they said; and their unjustified murder of the prophets. And We’ll say, “Taste the suffering of the Blaze

. “It’s for the misdeeds committed by your hands. Allah is not unjust to the beings

. Those who said: “Allah received our promise, not to believe in a messenger: unless he brings us an offering consumed by fire.” Say, “Messengers came to you before me, with clear evidence, and with what you asked for. Why did you kill them, if you tell the truth

. If they accuse you of lying, messengers before you were accused of lying — they came with miracles, scriptures, and the Illuminating Book

. Every person will taste death. Then you’ll receive your compensation on Resurrection Day. Whoever is swayed from the Fire, and admitted to Paradise, has won. The worldly life is only the enjoyment of illusions

. You’ll be tested by your possessions and your persons. And you’ll hear many insults from the associators and from those who received the Scripture before you. But if you’re patient and thoughtful: this is the proper resolution

. Allah received a promise from those who received the Scripture: “You must proclaim it to people, and not hide it.” But they disregarded it behind their backs, and they sold it at a low price — wretched is the trade they made

. Don’t consider those who rejoice in what they do, and they like to be praised for what they didn’t do — don’t think they can escape the punishment; they’ll have a painful punishment

. Control of Heavens and Earth belongs to Allah. Allah has power over all things

. In the creation of Heavens and Earth, and in the cycle of night and day, there are signs for those who understand

. Those who remember Allah standing, sitting, and on their sides. And they think about the creation of Heavens and Earth: “Our Lord, You didn’t create this for nothing. Glory be to You! Protect us from the suffering of the Fire

. “Our Lord, whomever You commit to the Fire, is humiliated. The evildoers will have no helpers

. “Our Lord, we heard a caller calling to faith: ‘Believe in your Lord,’ so we believed. Our Lord, forgive us our sins, erase our bad deeds, and make us die with the virtuous

. “Our Lord, give us what You promised us through Your messengers, and don’t humiliate us on Resurrection Day — You never break your promise

. Their Lord answered them: “I won’t let the deeds of any of you, male or female, go to waste; you’re one of the other. Those who emigrated, and were expelled from their homes, and were persecuted in my path, and fought and were killed: I’ll erase their sins, and I’ll admit them to Gardens under which rivers flow — a reward of Allah. Allah gives the best reward

. Don’t be impressed by the movements of unbelievers on earth

. A brief enjoyment, then their dwelling is Hell — a terrible dwelling

. But those who are mindful of their Lord will have Gardens under which rivers flow, where they’ll remain forever — the hospitality of Allah. What Allah has is best for the pure

. Among the Bible-People are those who believe in Allah, and in what was revealed to you, and in what was revealed to them. They are humble before Allah, and they don’t sell Allah’s revelations at a low price. These will have their reward with their Lord. Allah is quick to settle scores

. O you who believe: be patient, advocate patience, be united, and revere Allah, so that you may prosper
