would increase in faith along with their [present] faith. And to Allāh belong the soldiers of the heavens and the
earth, and ever is Allāh Knowing and Wise.
that He may admit the believing men and the believing women to gardens beneath
which rivers flow to abide therein eternally and remove from them their
misdeeds – and ever is that, in the sight of Allāh,
a great attainment –
[that] He may punish the hypocrite men and hypocrite women, and the polytheist
men and polytheist women – those who assume about Allāh
an assumption of evil nature. Upon them is a misfortune of evil nature; and Allāh has become angry with them and has cursed them
and prepared for them Hell, and evil it is as a destination.
to Allāh belong the soldiers of the heavens and
the earth. And ever is Allāh Exalted in Might
We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner

Messenger and honor him and respect the Prophet and exalt Allāh morning and afternoon.
those who pledge allegiance to you, [O Muúammad] – they are actually pledging
allegiance to Allāh. The hand of Allāh is over their hands. So he who breaks his word
only breaks it to the detriment of himself. And he who fulfills that which he
has promised Allāh – He will give him a great
who remained behind of the bedouins will say to you, "Our properties and
our families occupied us, so ask forgiveness for us." They say with their
tongues what is not within their hearts. Say, "Then who could prevent Allāh at all if He intended for you harm or intended
for you benefit? Rather, ever is Allāh, with
what you do, Acquainted.
you thought that the Messenger and the believers would never return to their
families, ever, and that was made pleasing in your hearts. And you assumed an
assumption of evil and became a people ruined."
whoever has not believed in Allāh and His
Messenger – then indeed, We have prepared for the disbelievers a Blaze.
to Allāh belongs the dominion of the heavens
and the earth. He forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills. And ever
is Allāh Forgiving and Merciful.
who remained behind will say when you set out toward the war booty to take it,
"Let us follow you." They wish to change the words of Allāh. Say, "Never will you follow us. Thus did Allāh say before." So they will say,
"Rather, you envy us." But [in fact] they were not understanding
except a little.
to those who remained behind of the bedouins, "You will be called to
[face] a people of great military might; you may fight them, or they will
submit. So if you obey, Allāh will give you a
good reward; but if you turn away as you turned away before, He will punish you
with a painful punishment."

guilt [for remaining behind]. And whoever obeys Allāh
and His Messenger – He will admit him to gardens beneath which rivers flow; but
whoever turns away – He will punish him with a painful punishment.
was Allāh pleased with the believers when they
pledged allegiance to you, [O Muúammad], under the tree, and He knew what was
in their hearts, so He sent down tranquillity upon them and rewarded them with
an imminent conquest

20. Allāh has promised you much booty that you will take
[in the future] and has hastened for you this [victory] and withheld the hands
of people from you – that it may be a sign for the believers and [that] He may
guide you to a straight path.
[He promises] other [victories] that you were [so far] unable to [realize]
which Allāh has already encompassed. And ever
is Allāh, over all things, competent.
if those [Makkans] who disbelieve had fought you, they would have turned their
backs [in flight]. Then they would not find a protector or a helper.

area of] Makkah after He caused you to overcome them. And ever is Allāh of what you do, Seeing.
are the ones who disbelieved and obstructed you from al-Masjid al-îarām while
the offering was prevented from reaching its place of sacrifice. And if not for
believing men and believing women whom you did not know – that you might
trample them and there would befall you because of them dishonor without [your]
knowledge – [you would have been permitted to enter Makkah]. [This was so] that
Allāh might admit to His mercy whom He willed.
If they had been apart [from them], We would have punished those who
disbelieved among them with painful punishment
those who disbelieved had put into their hearts chauvinism – the chauvinism of
the time of ignorance. But Allāh sent down His
tranquillity upon His Messenger and upon the believers and imposed upon them
the word of righteousness, and they were more deserving of it and worthy of it.
And ever is Allāh, of all things, Knowing.

truth. You will surely enter al-Masjid al-îarām, if Allāh
wills, in safety, with your heads shaved and [hair] shortened, not fearing

are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them
bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allāh and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the
trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their

disbelievers. Allāh has promised those who
believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward.
