Paperback Edition

Electronic Version

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

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

1.

إِذَا جَآءَكَ ٱلۡمُنَـٰفِقُونَ قَالُواْ نَشۡہَدُ إِنَّكَ لَرَسُولُ ٱللَّهِ‌ۗ

When the Hypocrites come to thee, they say,

"We bear witness that thou art indeed the Messenger of Allah."

وَٱللَّهُ يَعۡلَمُ إِنَّكَ لَرَسُولُهُ ۥ وَٱللَّهُ يَشۡہَدُ إِنَّ ٱلۡمُنَـٰفِقِينَ لَكَـٰذِبُونَ   

Yea, Allah knoweth that thou art indeed His Messenger, and Allah beareth witness that the Hypocrites are indeed liars.

2.

ٱتَّخَذُوٓاْ أَيۡمَـٰنَہُمۡ جُنَّةً۬ فَصَدُّواْ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ

They have made their oaths a screen (for their misdeeds): thus they obstruct (men) from the Path of Allah:

إِنَّہُمۡ سَآءَ مَا كَانُواْ يَعۡمَلُونَ   

truly evil are their deeds.

3.

ذَٲلِكَ بِأَنَّہُمۡ ءَامَنُواْ ثُمَّ كَفَرُواْ فَطُبِعَ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِہِمۡ

That is because they believed, then they rejected Faith: so a seal was set on their hearts:

فَهُمۡ لَا يَفۡقَهُونَ   

therefore they understand not.

4.

وَإِذَا رَأَيۡتَهُمۡ تُعۡجِبُكَ أَجۡسَامُهُمۡ‌ۖ

When thou lookest at them, their exteriors please thee;

وَإِن يَقُولُواْ تَسۡمَعۡ لِقَوۡلِهِمۡ‌ۖ

and when they speak, thou listenest to their words.

كَأَنَّہُمۡ خُشُبٌ۬ مُّسَنَّدَةٌ۬‌ۖ

They are as (worthless as hollow) pieces of timber propped up, (unable to stand on their own).

يَحۡسَبُونَ كُلَّ صَيۡحَةٍ عَلَيۡہِمۡ‌ۚ

They think that every cry is against them.

هُمُ ٱلۡعَدُوُّ فَٱحۡذَرۡهُمۡ‌ۚ

They are the enemies; so beware of them.

قَـٰتَلَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ‌ۖ أَنَّىٰ يُؤۡفَكُونَ   

The curse of Allah be on them! How are they deluded (away from the Truth)!

5.

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمۡ تَعَالَوۡاْ يَسۡتَغۡفِرۡ لَكُمۡ رَسُولُ ٱللَّهِ لَوَّوۡاْ رُءُوسَهُمۡ

And when it is said to them,

"Come, the Messenger of Allah will pray for your forgiveness,"

وَرَأَيۡتَهُمۡ يَصُدُّونَ وَهُم مُّسۡتَكۡبِرُونَ   

they turn aside their heads, and thou wouldst see them turning away their faces in arrogance.

6.

سَوَآءٌ عَلَيۡهِمۡ أَسۡتَغۡفَرۡتَ لَهُمۡ أَمۡ لَمۡ تَسۡتَغۡفِرۡ لَهُمۡ لَن يَغۡفِرَ ٱللَّهُ لَهُمۡ‌ۚ

It is equal to them whether thou pray for their forgiveness or not. Allah will not forgive them.

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَہۡدِى ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلۡفَـٰسِقِينَ   

Truly Allah guides not rebellious transgressors.

7.

هُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ لَا تُنفِقُواْ عَلَىٰ مَنۡ عِندَ رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ حَتَّىٰ يَنفَضُّواْ‌ۗ

They are the ones who say,

"Spend nothing on those who are with Allah's Messenger, to the end that they may disperse (and quit Madinah)."

وَلِلَّهِ خَزَآٮِٕنُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَلَـٰكِنَّ ٱلۡمُنَـٰفِقِينَ لَا يَفۡقَهُونَ   

But to Allah belong the treasures of the heavens and the earth; but the Hypocrites understand not.

8.

يَقُولُونَ لَٮِٕن رَّجَعۡنَآ إِلَى ٱلۡمَدِينَةِ لَيُخۡرِجَنَّ ٱلۡأَعَزُّ مِنۡہَا ٱلۡأَذَلَّ‌ۚ

They say,

"If we return to Madinah, surely the more honorable (element) will expel there from the meaner."

وَلِلَّهِ ٱلۡعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِۦ وَلِلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَلَـٰكِنَّ ٱلۡمُنَـٰفِقِينَ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ 

But honor belongs to Allah and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the Hypocrites know not.

9.

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لَا تُلۡهِكُمۡ أَمۡوَٲلُكُمۡ وَلَآ أَوۡلَـٰدُڪُمۡ عَن ذِڪۡرِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ

O ye who believe!

let not your riches or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah.

وَمَن يَفۡعَلۡ ذَٲلِكَ فَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ ٱلۡخَـٰسِرُونَ   

If any act thus, the loss is their own.

10.

وَأَنفِقُواْ مِن مَّا رَزَقۡنَـٰكُم مِّن قَبۡلِ أَن يَأۡتِىَ أَحَدَكُمُ ٱلۡمَوۡتُ فَيَقُولَ

And spend something (in charity) out of the substance which We have bestowed on you, before death should come to any of you and he should say,

رَبِّ لَوۡلَآ أَخَّرۡتَنِىٓ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍ۬ قَرِيبٍ۬ فَأَصَّدَّقَ وَأَكُن مِّنَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحِينَ   

"O my Lord! why didst thou not give me respite for a little while?I should then have given (largely) in charity, and I should have been one of the doers of good."

11.

وَلَن يُؤَخِّرَ ٱللَّهُ نَفۡسًا إِذَا جَآءَ أَجَلُهَا‌ۚ

But to no soul will Allah grant respite when the time appointed (for it) has come:

وَٱللَّهُ خَبِيرُۢ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ 

and Allah is well-acquainted with (all) that ye do.
