[59.1] All that is in the
heavens and all that is in the earth glorifieth Allah, and He is
the Mighty, the Wise.
[59.2] He it is Who hath caused those of the People of the
Scripture who disbelieved to go forth from their homes unto the
first exile. Ye deemed not that they would go forth, while they
deemed that their strongholds would protect them from Allah. But
Allah reached them from a place whereof they recked not, and
cast terror in their hearts so that they ruined their houses
with their own hands and the hands of the believers. So learn a
lesson, O ye who have eyes!
[59.3] And if Allah had not decreed migration for them, He
verily would have punished them in the world, and theirs in the
Hereafter is the punishment of the Fire.
[59.4] That is because they were opposed to Allah and His
messenger; and whoso is opposed to Allah, (for him) verily Allah
is stern in reprisal.
[59.5] Whatsoever palm-trees ye cut down or left standing on
their roots, it was by Allah's leave, in order that He might
confound the evil-livers.
[59.6] And that which Allah gave as spoil unto His messenger
from them, ye urged not any horse or riding-camel for the sake
thereof, but Allah giveth His messenger lordship over whom He
will. Allah is Able to do all things.
[59.7] That which Allah giveth as spoil unto His messenger from
the people of the townships, it is for Allah and His messenger
and for the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the
wayfarer, that it become not a commodity between the rich among
you. And whatsoever the messenger giveth you, take it. And
whatsoever he forbiddeth, abstain (from it). And keep your duty
to Allah. Lo! Allah is stern in reprisal.
[59.8] And (it is) for the poor fugitives who have been driven
out from their homes and their belongings, who seek bounty from
Allah and help Allah and His messenger. They are the loyal.
[59.9] Those who entered the city and the faith before them love
those who flee unto them for refuge, and find in their breasts
no need for that which hath been given them, but prefer (the
fugitives) above themselves though poverty become their lot. And
whoso is saved from his own avarice - such are they who are
[59.10] And those who came (into the faith) after them say: Our
Lord! Forgive us and our brethren who were before us in the
faith, and place not in our hearts any rancour toward those who
believe. Our Lord! Thou art Full of Pity, Merciful.
[59.11] Hast thou not observed those who are hypocrites, (how)
they tell their brethren who disbelieve among the People of the
Scripture: If ye are driven out, we surely will go out with you,
and we will never obey anyone against you, and if ye are
attacked we verily will help you. And Allah beareth witness that
they verily are liars.
[59.12] (For) indeed if they are driven out they go not out with
them, and indeed if they are attacked they help them not, and
indeed if they had helped them they would have turned and fled,
and then they would not have been victorious.
[59.13] Ye are more awful as a fear in their bosoms than Allah.
That is because they are a folk who understand not.
[59.14] They will not fight against you in a body save in
fortified villages or from behind walls. Their adversity among
themselves is very great. Ye think of them as a whole whereas
their hearts are divers. That is because they are a folk who
have no sense.
[59.15] On the likeness of those (who suffered) a short time
before them, they taste the ill-effects of their own conduct,
and theirs is painful punishment.
[59.16] (And the hypocrites are) on the likeness of the devil
when he telleth man to disbelieve, then, when he disbelieveth
saith: Lo! I am quit of thee. Lo! I fear Allah, the Lord of the
[59.17] And the consequence for both will be that they are in
the Fire, therein abiding. Such is the reward of evil-doers.
[59.18] O ye who believe! Observe your duty to Allah. And let
every soul look to that which it sendeth on before for the
morrow. And observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of
what ye do.
[59.19] And be not ye as those who forgot Allah, therefor He
caused them to forget their souls. Such are the evil-doers.
[59.20] Not equal are the owners of the Fire and the owners of
the Garden. The owners of the Garden, they are the victorious.
[59.21] If We had caused this Qur'an to descend upon a mountain,
thou (O Muhammad) verily hadst seen it humbled, rent asunder by
the fear of Allah. Such similitudes coin We for mankind that
haply they may reflect.
[59.22] He is Allah, than Whom there is no other God, the Knower
of the Invisible and the Visible. He is the Beneficent,
[59.23] He is Allah, than Whom there is no other God, the
Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, Peace, the Keeper of Faith, the
Guardian, the Majestic, the Compeller, the Superb. Glorified be
Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him).
[59.24] He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naught, the
Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the
heavens and the earth glorifieth Him, and He is the Mighty, the
