[60.1] O ye who believe!
Choose not My enemy and your enemy for allies. Do ye give them
friendship when they disbelieve in that truth which hath come
unto you, driving out the messenger and you because ye believe
in Allah, your Lord ? If ye have come forth to strive in My way
and seeking My good pleasure, (show them not friendship). Do ye
show friendship unto them in secret, when I am Best Aware of
what ye hide and what ye proclaim ? And whosoever doeth it among
you, he verily hath strayed from the right way.
[60.2] If they have the upper hand of you, they will be your
foes, and will stretch out their hands and their tongues toward
you with evil (intent), and they long for you to disbelieve.
[60.3] Your ties of kindred and your children will avail you
naught upon the Day of Resurrection. He will part you. Allah is
Seer of what ye do.
[60.4] There is a goodly pattern for you in Abraham and those
with him, when they told their folk: Lo! we are guiltless of you
and all that ye worship beside Allah. We have done with you. And
there hath arisen between us and you hostility and hate for ever
until ye believe in Allah only - save that which Abraham
promised his father (when he said): I will ask forgiveness for
thee, though I own nothing for thee from Allah - Our Lord! In
Thee we put our trust, and unto Thee we turn repentant, and unto
Thee is the journeying.
[60.5] Our Lord! Make us not a prey for those who disbelieve,
and forgive us, our Lord! Lo! Thou, only Thou, are the Mighty,
[60.6] Verily ye have in them a goodly pattern for everyone who
looketh to Allah and the Last Day. And whosoever may turn away,
lo! still Allah, He is the Absolute, the Owner of Praise.
[60.7] It may be that Allah will ordain love between you and
those of them with whom ye are at enmity. Allah is Mighty, and
Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[60.8] Allah forbiddeth you not those who warred not against you
on account of religion and drove you not out from your homes,
that ye should show them kindness and deal justly with them. Lo!
Allah loveth the just dealers.
[60.9] Allah forbiddeth you only those who warred against you on
account of religion and have driven you out from your homes and
helped to drive you out, that ye make friends of them. Whosoever
maketh friends of them - (All) such are wrong-doers.
[60.10] O ye who believe! When believing women come unto you as
fugitives, examine them. Allah is Best Aware of their faith.
Then, if ye know them for true believers, send them not back
unto the disbelievers. They are not lawful for them (the
disbelievers), nor are they (the disbelievers) lawful for them.
And give them (the disbelievers) that which they have spent
(upon them). And it is no sin for you to marry such women when
ye have given them their dues. And hold not to the ties of
disbelieving women; and ask for (the return of) that which ye
have spent; and let them (the disbelievers) ask for that which
they have spent. That is the judgment of Allah. He judgeth
between you. Allah is Knower, Wise.
[60.11] And if any of your wives have gone from you unto the
disbelievers and afterward ye have your turn (of triumph), then
give unto those whose wives have gone the like of that which
they have spent, and keep your duty to Allah in Whom ye are
[60.12] O Prophet! If believing women come unto thee, taking
oath of allegiance unto thee that they will ascribe no thing as
partner unto Allah, and will neither steal nor commit adultery
nor kill their children, nor produce any lie that they have
devised between their hands and feet, nor disobey thee in what
is right, then accept their allegiance and ask Allah to forgive
them. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[60.13] O ye who believe! Be not friendly with a folk with whom
Allah is wroth, (a folk) who have despaired of the Hereafter as
the disbelievers despair of those who are in the graves.
