بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

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

1.

سَبَّحَ لِلَّهِ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۖ

Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, let it declare the Praises and Glory of Allah:

وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡحَكِيمُ   

for He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

2.

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لَا تَفۡعَلُونَ 

O ye who believe! why say ye that which ye do not?

3.

ڪَبُرَ مَقۡتًا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَن تَقُولُواْ مَا لَا تَفۡعَلُونَ 

Grievously odious is it in the sight of Allah that ye say that which ye do not.

4.

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُحِبُّ ٱلَّذِينَ يُقَـٰتِلُونَ فِى سَبِيلِهِۦ صَفًّ۬ا كَأَنَّهُم بُنۡيَـٰنٌ۬ مَّرۡصُوصٌ۬ 

Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure.

5.

وَإِذۡ قَالَ مُوسَىٰ لِقَوۡمِهِۦ

And remember, Moses said to his people:

يَـٰقَوۡمِ لِمَ تُؤۡذُونَنِى وَقَد تَّعۡلَمُونَ أَنِّى رَسُولُ ٱللَّهِ إِلَيۡڪُمۡ‌ۖ

"O my people!

why do ye vex and insult me, though ye know that I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you?"

فَلَمَّا زَاغُوٓاْ أَزَاغَ ٱللَّهُ قُلُوبَهُمۡ‌ۚ

Then when they went wrong, Allah let their hearts go wrong:

وَٱللَّهُ لَا يَہۡدِى ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلۡفَـٰسِقِينَ 

for Allah guides not those who are rebellious transgressors.

6.

وَإِذۡ قَالَ عِيسَى ٱبۡنُ مَرۡيَمَ

And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said:

يَـٰبَنِىٓ إِسۡرَٲٓءِيلَ إِنِّى رَسُولُ ٱللَّهِ إِلَيۡكُم مُّصَدِّقً۬ا لِّمَا بَيۡنَ يَدَىَّ مِنَ ٱلتَّوۡرَٮٰةِ

"O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you confirming the Law (which came) before me,

وَمُبَشِّرَۢا بِرَسُولٍ۬ يَأۡتِى مِنۢ بَعۡدِى ٱسۡمُهُ ۥۤ أَحۡمَدُ‌ۖ

and giving glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad."

فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُم بِٱلۡبَيِّنَـٰتِ قَالُواْ هَـٰذَا سِحۡرٌ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬   

But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, "This is evident sorcery!"

7.

وَمَنۡ أَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ ٱفۡتَرَىٰ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡكَذِبَ وَهُوَ يُدۡعَىٰٓ إِلَى ٱلۡإِسۡلَـٰمِ‌ۚ

Who doth greater wrong than one who invents falsehood against Allah, even as he is being invited to Islam?

وَٱللَّهُ لَا يَہۡدِى ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ   

And Allah guides not those who do wrong.

8.

يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطۡفِـُٔواْ نُورَ ٱللَّهِ بِأَفۡوَٲهِهِمۡ

Their intention is to extinguish Allah's Light (by blowing) with their mouths:

وَٱللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِۦ وَلَوۡ ڪَرِهَ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرُونَ   

but Allah will complete (the revelation of) His Light, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it).

9.

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

It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, that he may proclaim it over all religion,

وَلَوۡ كَرِهَ ٱلۡمُشۡرِكُونَ   

even though the Pagans may detest (it).

10.

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ هَلۡ أَدُلُّكُمۡ عَلَىٰ تِجَـٰرَةٍ۬ تُنجِيكُم مِّنۡ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ۬ 

O ye who believe!

shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty? --

11.

تُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ

-    That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger,

وَتُجَـٰهِدُونَ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ بِأَمۡوَٲلِكُمۡ وَأَنفُسِكُمۡ‌ۚ

-    and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons:

ذَٲلِكُمۡ خَيۡرٌ۬ لَّكُمۡ إِن كُنتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ   

that will be best for you, if ye but knew!

12.

يَغۡفِرۡ لَكُمۡ ذُنُوبَكُمۡ وَيُدۡخِلۡكُمۡ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِہَا ٱلۡأَنۡہَـٰرُ

He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which rivers flow,

وَمَسَـٰكِنَ طَيِّبَةً۬ فِى جَنَّـٰتِ عَدۡنٍ۬‌ۚ

and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity:

ذَٲلِكَ ٱلۡفَوۡزُ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ   

that is indeed the supreme Achievement.

13.

وَأُخۡرَىٰ تُحِبُّونَہَا‌ۖنَصۡرٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَفَتۡحٌ۬ قَرِيبٌ۬‌ۗ

And another (favor will He bestow), which ye do love --help from Allah and a speedy victory:

وَبَشِّرِ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ   

so give the Glad Tidings to the Believers.

14.

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ كُونُوٓاْ أَنصَارَ ٱللَّهِ

O ye who believe! be ye helpers of Allah:

كَمَا قَالَ عِيسَى ٱبۡنُ مَرۡيَمَ لِلۡحَوَارِيِّـۧنَ مَنۡ أَنصَارِىٓ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ

as said Jesus, the son of Mary, to the Disciples, "Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah?"

قَالَ ٱلۡحَوَارِيُّونَ نَحۡنُ أَنصَارُ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ

Said the Disciples, "We are Allah's helpers!"

فَـَٔامَنَت طَّآٮِٕفَةٌ۬ مِّنۢ بَنِىٓ إِسۡرَٲٓءِيلَ وَكَفَرَت طَّآٮِٕفَةٌ۬‌ۖ

Then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved:

فَأَيَّدۡنَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ عَلَىٰ عَدُوِّهِمۡ فَأَصۡبَحُواْ ظَـٰهِرِينَ 

but We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed.
