The Holy Qur'an Translation

 
 



As-Saff

In the name of ALLAH, the Gracious, the Merciful.
Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth glorifies ALLAH; and HE is the Mighty, the Wise. (1) O ye who believe ! Why do you say what you do not ? (2) It is most hateful in the sight of ALLAH that you say what you do not. (3) Verily, ALLAH loves those who fight in HIS cause arrayed in solid ranks, as though they were a strong structure cemented with molten lead. (4) And call to mind when Moses said to his people, `O my people, why do you malign me and you know that I am ALLAH's Messenger unto you ?' So when they deviated from the right course, ALLAH caused their hearts to deviate; for ALLAH guides not the rebellious people. (5) And call to mind when Jesus, son of Mary, said, `O children of Israel, surely, I am ALLAH's Messenger unto you, fulfilling that which is before me of the prophecies of the Torah, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger who will come after me, his name being Ahmad. And when he came to them with clear proofs, they said, this is manifest sorcery.' (6) But who does greater wrong than he who forges a lie against ALLAH while he is invited to Islam ? ALLAH guides not the wrongdoing people. (7) They desire to extinguish the light of ALLAH with the breath of their mouths, but ALLAH will perfect HIS light, however much the disbelievers may dislike it. (8) HE it is Who has sent HIS Messenger with the guidance and the Religion of truth, that HE may cause it to prevail over all religions, however much those who associate partners with ALLAH may dislike it. (9) O ye who believe ! shall I point out to you a commerce which will deliver you from a painful punishment ? (10) That you believe in ALLAH and His Messenger, and strive in the cause of ALLAH with your wealth and your persons. That is better for you, if you did but know. (11) HE will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens through which streams flow, and to pure and pleasant dwellings in Gardens of Eternity. That is the supreme triumph, (12) And HE will bestow upon you another favour which you love: help from ALLAH and a nigh victory. So give glad tidings to the believers. (13) O ye who believe ! be helpers of ALLAH, as said Jesus, son of Mary, to his disciples, `Who are my helpers in the cause of ALLAH ?' The disciples said, `We are helpers of ALLAH.' So a party of the Children of Israel believed while a party disbelieved. Then WE aided those who believed against their enemy, and they became predominant. (14)
