بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

1.

إِنَّا فَتَحۡنَا لَكَ فَتۡحً۬ا مُّبِينً۬ا 

Verily, We have given you (O Muhammad SAW) a manifest victory.

2.

لِّيَغۡفِرَ لَكَ ٱللَّهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِن ذَنۢبِكَ وَمَا تَأَخَّرَ

That Allah may forgive you your sins of the past and the future,

وَيُتِمَّ نِعۡمَتَهُ ۥ عَلَيۡكَ وَيَہۡدِيَكَ صِرَٲطً۬ا مُّسۡتَقِيمً۬ا 

and complete His Favour on you, and guide you on the Straight Path;

3.

وَيَنصُرَكَ ٱللَّهُ نَصۡرًا عَزِيزًا 

And that Allah may help you with strong help.

4.

هُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنزَلَ ٱلسَّكِينَةَ فِى قُلُوبِ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ لِيَزۡدَادُوٓاْ إِيمَـٰنً۬ا مَّعَ إِيمَـٰنِہِمۡ‌ۗ

He it is Who sent down As-Sakinah (calmness and tranquillity) into the hearts of the believers, that they may grow more in Faith along with their (present) Faith.

وَلِلَّهِ جُنُودُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۚ

And to Allah belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth,

وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمً۬ا 

and Allah is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise.

5.

لِّيُدۡخِلَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتِ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِہَا ٱلۡأَنۡہَـٰرُ خَـٰلِدِينَ فِيہَا

That He may admit the believing men and the believing women to Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise), to abide therein forever,

وَيُڪَفِّرَ عَنۡهُمۡ سَيِّـَٔاتِہِمۡ‌ۚ

and to expiate from them their sins,

وَكَانَ ذَٲلِكَ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ فَوۡزًا عَظِيمً۬ا 

and that is with Allah, a supreme success,

6.

وَيُعَذِّبَ ٱلۡمُنَـٰفِقِينَ وَٱلۡمُنَـٰفِقَـٰتِ وَٱلۡمُشۡرِكِينَ وَٱلۡمُشۡرِكَـٰتِ ٱلظَّآنِّينَ بِٱللَّهِ ظَنَّ ٱلسَّوۡءِ‌ۚ

And that He may punish the Munafiqoon (hypocrites), men and women, and also the Mushrikoon men and women, who think evil thoughts about Allah,

عَلَيۡہِمۡ دَآٮِٕرَةُ ٱلسَّوۡءِ‌ۖ

for them is a disgraceful torment,

وَغَضِبَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيۡہِمۡ وَلَعَنَهُمۡ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمۡ جَهَنَّمَ‌ۖ

and the Anger of Allah is upon them, and He has cursed them and prepared Hell for them,

وَسَآءَتۡ مَصِيرً۬ا 

and worst indeed is that destination.

7.

وَلِلَّهِ جُنُودُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۚ

And to Allah belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth.

وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ عَزِيزًا حَكِيمًا 

And Allah is Ever All-Knower, All- Wise.

8.

إِنَّآ أَرۡسَلۡنَـٰكَ شَـٰهِدً۬ا وَمُبَشِّرً۬ا وَنَذِيرً۬ا 

Verily, We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner.

9.

لِّتُؤۡمِنُواْ بِٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ وَتُعَزِّرُوهُ وَتُوَقِّرُوهُ

In order that you (O mankind) may believe in Allah and His Messenger (SAW), and that you assist and honour him (SAW),

وَتُسَبِّحُوهُ بُڪۡرَةً۬ وَأَصِيلاً 

and (that you) glorify (Allahs) praises morning and afternoon.

10.

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يُبَايِعُونَكَ إِنَّمَا يُبَايِعُونَ ٱللَّهَ يَدُ ٱللَّهِ فَوۡقَ أَيۡدِيہِمۡ‌ۚ

Verily, those who give Baia (pledge) to you (O Muhammad SAW) they are giving Baia (pledge) to Allah. The Hand of Allah is over their hands.

فَمَن نَّكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنكُثُ عَلَىٰ نَفۡسِهِۦ‌ۖ

Then whosoever breaks his pledge, breaks only to his own harm,

وَمَنۡ أَوۡفَىٰ بِمَا عَـٰهَدَ عَلَيۡهُ ٱللَّهَ فَسَيُؤۡتِيهِ أَجۡرًا عَظِيمً۬ا 

and whosoever fulfills what he has covenanted with Allah, He will bestow on him a great reward.

11.

سَيَقُولُ لَكَ ٱلۡمُخَلَّفُونَ مِنَ ٱلۡأَعۡرَابِ شَغَلَتۡنَآ أَمۡوَٲلُنَا وَأَهۡلُونَا فَٱسۡتَغۡفِرۡ لَنَا‌ۚ

Those of the bedouins who lagged behind will say to you: "Our possessions and our families occupied us, so ask forgiveness for us."

يَقُولُونَ بِأَلۡسِنَتِهِم مَّا لَيۡسَ فِى قُلُوبِهِمۡ‌ۚ

They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts.

قُلۡ فَمَن يَمۡلِكُ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ شَيۡـًٔا إِنۡ أَرَادَ بِكُمۡ ضَرًّا أَوۡ أَرَادَ بِكُمۡ نَفۡعَۢا‌ۚ

Say:

"Who then has any power at all (to intervene) on your behalf with Allah, if He intends you hurt or intends you benefit?

بَلۡ كَانَ ٱللَّهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ خَبِيرَۢا 

Nay, but Allah is Ever All-Aware of what you do.

12.

بَلۡ ظَنَنتُمۡ أَن لَّن يَنقَلِبَ ٱلرَّسُولُ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ إِلَىٰٓ أَهۡلِيهِمۡ أَبَدً۬ا

"Nay, but you thought that the Messenger (SAW) and the believers would never return to their families;

وَزُيِّنَ ذَٲلِكَ فِى قُلُوبِكُمۡ وَظَنَنتُمۡ ظَنَّ ٱلسَّوۡءِ وَڪُنتُمۡ قَوۡمَۢا بُورً۬ا 

and that was made fair-seeming in their hearts, and you did think an evil thought and you became a useless people going for destruction."

13.

وَمَن لَّمۡ يُؤۡمِنۢ بِٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ فَإِنَّآ أَعۡتَدۡنَا لِلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ سَعِيرً۬ا 

And whosoever does not believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), then verily, We have prepared for the disbelievers a blazing Fire .

14.

وَلِلَّهِ مُلۡكُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۚ

And to Allah belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth,

يَغۡفِرُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيُعَذِّبُ مَن يَشَآءُ‌ۚ

He forgives whom He wills, and punishes whom He wills.

وَڪَانَ ٱللَّهُ غَفُورً۬ا رَّحِيمً۬ا 

And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

15.

سَيَقُولُ ٱلۡمُخَلَّفُونَ إِذَا ٱنطَلَقۡتُمۡ إِلَىٰ مَغَانِمَ لِتَأۡخُذُوهَا ذَرُونَا نَتَّبِعۡكُمۡ‌ۖ

Those who lagged behind will say, when you set forth to take the spoils, "Allow us to follow you,"

يُرِيدُونَ أَن يُبَدِّلُواْ كَلَـٰمَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ

They want to change Allah's Words.

قُل لَّن تَتَّبِعُونَا ڪَذَٲلِكُمۡ قَالَ ٱللَّهُ مِن قَبۡلُ‌ۖ

Say: "You shall not follow us; thus Allah has said beforehand."

فَسَيَقُولُونَ بَلۡ تَحۡسُدُونَنَا‌ۚ

Then they will say: "Nay, you envy us."

بَلۡ كَانُواْ لَا يَفۡقَهُونَ إِلَّا قَلِيلاً۬ 

Nay, but they understand not except a little.

16.

قُل لِّلۡمُخَلَّفِينَ مِنَ ٱلۡأَعۡرَابِ سَتُدۡعَوۡنَ إِلَىٰ قَوۡمٍ أُوْلِى بَأۡسٍ۬ شَدِيدٍ۬ تُقَـٰتِلُونَہُمۡ أَوۡ يُسۡلِمُونَ‌ۖ

Say (O Muhammad SAW) to the bedouins who lagged behind:

"You shall be called to fight against a people given to great warfare, then you shall fight them, or they shall surrender.

فَإِن تُطِيعُواْ يُؤۡتِكُمُ ٱللَّهُ أَجۡرًا حَسَنً۬ا‌ۖ

Then if you obey, Allah will give you a fair reward,

وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوۡاْ كَمَا تَوَلَّيۡتُم مِّن قَبۡلُ يُعَذِّبۡكُمۡ عَذَابًا أَلِيمً۬ا  

but if you turn away as you did turn away before, He will punish you with a painful torment."

17.

لَّيۡسَ عَلَى ٱلۡأَعۡمَىٰ حَرَجٌ۬ وَلَا عَلَى ٱلۡأَعۡرَجِ حَرَجٌ۬ وَلَا عَلَى ٱلۡمَرِيضِ حَرَجٌ۬‌ۗ

No blame or sin is there upon the blind, nor is there blame or sin upon the lame, nor is there blame or sin upon the sick (that they go not forth to war).

وَمَن يُطِعِ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۥ يُدۡخِلۡهُ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِهَا ٱلۡأَنۡہَـٰرُ‌ۖ

And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), He will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow (Paradise);

وَمَن يَتَوَلَّ يُعَذِّبۡهُ عَذَابًا أَلِيمً۬ا 

and whosoever turns back, He will punish him with a painful torment.

18.

لَّقَدۡ رَضِىَ ٱللَّهُ عَنِ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ إِذۡ يُبَايِعُونَكَ تَحۡتَ ٱلشَّجَرَةِ

Indeed, Allah was pleased with the believers when they gave their Baia (pledge) to you (O Muhammad SAW) under the tree,

فَعَلِمَ مَا فِى قُلُوبِہِمۡ فَأَنزَلَ ٱلسَّكِينَةَ عَلَيۡہِمۡ

He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down As-Sakinah (calmness and tranquillity) upon them,

وَأَثَـٰبَهُمۡ فَتۡحً۬ا قَرِيبً۬ا 

and He rewarded them with a near victory,

19.

وَمَغَانِمَ كَثِيرَةً۬ يَأۡخُذُونَہَا‌ۗ

And abundant spoils that they will capture.

وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ عَزِيزًا حَكِيمً۬ا 

And Allah is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise.

20.

وَعَدَكُمُ ٱللَّهُ مَغَانِمَ ڪَثِيرَةً۬ تَأۡخُذُونَہَا

Allah has promised you abundant spoils that you will capture,

فَعَجَّلَ لَكُمۡ هَـٰذِهِۦ وَكَفَّ أَيۡدِىَ ٱلنَّاسِ عَنكُمۡ

and He has hastened for you this, and He has restrained the hands of men from you,

وَلِتَكُونَ ءَايَةً۬ لِّلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَيَهۡدِيَكُمۡ صِرَٲطً۬ا مُّسۡتَقِيمً۬ا 

that it may be a sign for the believers, and that He may guide you to a Straight Path.

21.

وَأُخۡرَىٰ لَمۡ تَقۡدِرُواْ عَلَيۡہَا قَدۡ أَحَاطَ ٱللَّهُ بِہَا‌ۚ

And other (victories and much booty there are, He promises you) which are not yet within your power, indeed Allah compasses them,

وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ ڪُلِّ شَىۡءٍ۬ قَدِيرً۬ا 

And Allah is Ever Able to do all things.

22.

وَلَوۡ قَـٰتَلَكُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ لَوَلَّوُاْ ٱلۡأَدۡبَـٰرَ ثُمَّ لَا يَجِدُونَ وَلِيًّ۬ا وَلَا نَصِيرً۬ا 

And if those who disbelieve fight against you, they certainly would have turned their backs, then they would have found neither a Walee (protector) nor a helper.

23.

سُنَّةَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّتِى قَدۡ خَلَتۡ مِن قَبۡلُ‌ۖ

That has been the Way of Allah already with those who passed away before.

وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ ٱللَّهِ تَبۡدِيلاً۬ 

And you will not find any change in the Way of Allah.

24.

وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى كَفَّ أَيۡدِيَهُمۡ عَنكُمۡ وَأَيۡدِيَكُمۡ عَنۡہُم بِبَطۡنِ مَكَّةَ مِنۢ بَعۡدِ أَنۡ أَظۡفَرَكُمۡ عَلَيۡهِمۡ‌ۚ

And He it is Who has withheld their hands from you and your hands from them in the midst of Makkah, after He had made you victors over them.

وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ بَصِيرًا 

And Allah is Ever the All-Seer of what you do.

25.

هُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَصَدُّوڪُمۡ عَنِ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡحَرَامِ وَٱلۡهَدۡىَ مَعۡكُوفًا أَن يَبۡلُغَ مَحِلَّهُ ۥ‌ۚ

They are the ones who disbelieved (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism), and hindered you from Al Masjidal Haram (the sacred mosque of Makkah) and the sacrificial animals, detained from reaching their place of sacrifice.

وَلَوۡلَا رِجَالٌ۬ مُّؤۡمِنُونَ وَنِسَآءٌ۬ مُّؤۡمِنَـٰتٌ۬ لَّمۡ تَعۡلَمُوهُمۡ

Had there not been believing men and believing women whom you did not know,

أَن تَطَـُٔوهُمۡ فَتُصِيبَكُم مِّنۡهُم مَّعَرَّةُۢ بِغَيۡرِ عِلۡمٍ۬‌ۖ

that you may kill them, and on whose account a sin would have been committed by you without (your) knowledge,

لِّيُدۡخِلَ ٱللَّهُ فِى رَحۡمَتِهِۦ مَن يَشَآءُ‌ۚ

that Allah might bring into His Mercy whom He will,

لَوۡ تَزَيَّلُواْ لَعَذَّبۡنَا ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِنۡهُمۡ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا 

if they (the believers and the disbelievers) should have been apart, We verily had punished those of them who disbelieved, with painful torment.

26.

إِذۡ جَعَلَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فِى قُلُوبِهِمُ ٱلۡحَمِيَّةَ حَمِيَّةَ ٱلۡجَـٰهِلِيَّةِ

When those who disbelieve had put in their hearts pride and haughtiness the pride and haughtiness of the time of ignorance,

فَأَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ سَڪِينَتَهُ ۥ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِۦ وَعَلَى ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَأَلۡزَمَهُمۡ ڪَلِمَةَ ٱلتَّقۡوَىٰ

then Allah sent down His Sakinah (calmness and tranquillity) upon His Messenger ( SAW) and upon the believers, and made them stick to the word of piety (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but Allah),

وَكَانُوٓاْ أَحَقَّ بِہَا وَأَهۡلَهَا‌ۚ

and they were well entitled to it and worthy of it.

وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَىۡءٍ عَلِيمً۬ا  

And Allah is the All-Knower of everything.

27.

لَّقَدۡ صَدَقَ ٱللَّهُ رَسُولَهُ ٱلرُّءۡيَا بِٱلۡحَقِّ‌ۖ

Indeed Allah shall fulfil the true vision which He showed to His Messenger (SAW) (i.e. the Prophet SAW saw a dream that he has entered Makkah along with his companions, having their (head) hair shaved and cut short) in very truth.

لَتَدۡخُلُنَّ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدَ ٱلۡحَرَامَ إِن شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ ءَامِنِينَ مُحَلِّقِينَ رُءُوسَكُمۡ وَمُقَصِّرِينَ لَا تَخَافُونَ‌ۖ

Certainly, you shall enter Al Masjidal Haram; if Allah wills, secure, (some) having your heads shaved, and (some) having your head hair cut short, having no fear.

فَعَلِمَ مَا لَمۡ تَعۡلَمُواْ فَجَعَلَ مِن دُونِ ذَٲلِكَ فَتۡحً۬ا قَرِيبًا 

He knew what you knew not, and He granted besides that a near victory.

28.

هُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَرۡسَلَ رَسُولَهُ ۥ بِٱلۡهُدَىٰ وَدِينِ ٱلۡحَقِّ لِيُظۡهِرَهُ ۥ عَلَى ٱلدِّينِ كُلِّهِۦ‌ۚ

He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), that He may make it (Islam) superior over all religions.

وَكَفَىٰ بِٱللَّهِ شَهِيدً۬ا 

And All-Sufficient is Allah as a Witness.

29.

مُّحَمَّدٌ۬ رَّسُولُ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ

Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah,

وَٱلَّذِينَ مَعَهُ ۥۤ أَشِدَّآءُ عَلَى ٱلۡكُفَّارِ رُحَمَآءُ بَيۡنَہُمۡ‌ۖ

and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves.

تَرَٮٰهُمۡ رُكَّعً۬ا سُجَّدً۬ا يَبۡتَغُونَ فَضۡلاً۬ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَرِضۡوَٲنً۬ا‌ۖ

You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure.

سِيمَاهُمۡ فِى وُجُوهِهِم مِّنۡ أَثَرِ ٱلسُّجُودِ‌ۚ

The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of (their) prostration (during prayers).

ذَٲلِكَ مَثَلُهُمۡ فِى ٱلتَّوۡرَٮٰةِ‌ۚ

This is their description in the Taurat (Torah).

وَمَثَلُهُمۡ فِى ٱلۡإِنجِيلِ كَزَرۡعٍ أَخۡرَجَ شَطۡـَٔهُ ۥ فَـَٔازَرَهُ ۥ فَٱسۡتَغۡلَظَ فَٱسۡتَوَىٰ عَلَىٰ سُوقِهِۦ يُعۡجِبُ ٱلزُّرَّاعَ

But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers

لِيَغِيظَ بِہِمُ ٱلۡكُفَّارَ‌ۗ

that He may enrage the disbelievers with them.

وَعَدَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ مِنۡہُم مَّغۡفِرَةً۬ وَأَجۡرًا عَظِيمَۢا 

Allah has promised those among them who believe (i.e. all those who follow Islamic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad SAW till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).
