Quran English Translation Sura 52-72 P3


Sura 60:  The Test (Al-Mumtahanah)

Number of verses in sura: 13

Order of revelation: 91

 

[60:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[60:1]  O you who believe, you shall not befriend My enemies and your enemies, extending love and friendship to them, even though they have disbelieved in the truth that has come to you. They persecute the messenger, and you, just because you believe in GOD, your Lord. If you mobilize to struggle in My cause, seeking My blessings, how can you secretly love them? I am fully aware of everything you conceal, and everything you declare. Those among you who do this have indeed strayed off the right path.

 

[60:2]  Whenever they encounter you, they treat you as enemies, and hurt you with their hands and tongues. They want you to disbelieve.

 

[60:3]  Your relatives and your money can never help you. On the Day of Resurrection, He will judge among you. GOD is Seer of everything you do.

 

[60:4]  A good example has been set for you by Abraham and those with him. They said to their people, “We disown you and the idols that you worship besides GOD. We denounce you, and you will see nothing from us except animosity and hatred until you believe in GOD ALONE.” However, a mistake was commited by Abraham when he said to his father, “I will pray for your forgiveness, but I possess no power to protect you from GOD.” “Our Lord, we trust in You, and submit to You; to You is the final destiny.

 

[60:5]  “Our Lord, let us not be oppressed by those who disbelieved, and forgive us. You are the Almighty, Most Wise.”

 

[60:6]  A good example has been set by them for those who seek GOD and the Last Day. As for those who turn away, GOD is in no need (of them), Most Praiseworthy.

 

[60:7]  GOD may change the animosity between you and them into love. GOD is Omnipotent. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

 

[60:8]  GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable.

 

[60:9]  GOD enjoins you only from befriending those who fight you because of religion, evict you from your homes, and band together with others to banish you. You shall not befriend them. Those who befriend them are the transgressors.

 

[60:10]  O you who believe, when believing women (abandon the enemy and) ask for asylum with you, you shall test them. GOD is fully aware of their belief. Once you establish that they are believers, you shall not return them to the disbelievers. They are not lawful to remain married to them, nor shall the disbelievers be allowed to marry them. Give back the dowries that the disbelievers have paid. You commit no error by marrying them, so long as you pay them their due dowries. Do not keep disbelieving wives (if they wish to join the enemy). You may ask them for the dowry you had paid, and they may ask for what they paid. This is GOD‘s rule; He rules among you. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.

 

[60:11]  If any of your wives join the enemies’ camp, and you are forced to fight, you shall force the enemy to compensate the men who lost their wives, by giving them what they spent on their wives. You shall reverence GOD, in whom you believe.

 

[60:12]  O you prophet, when the believing women (who abandoned the disbelievers) to seek asylum with you pledge to you that they will not set up any idols besides GOD, nor steal, nor commit adultery, nor kill their children, nor fabricate any falsehood, nor disobey your righteous orders, you shall accept their pledge, and pray to GOD to forgive them. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

 

[60:13]  O you who believe, do not befriend people with whom GOD is angry, and who are hopelessly stuck in disbelief; they are just as hopeless as the disbelievers who are already in the graves.

Sura 61:  The Column (Al-Suff)

Number of verses in sura: 14

Order of revelation: 109

 

[61:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[61:1]  Glorifying GOD is everything in the heavens and everything on earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

 

[61:2]  O you who believe, why do you say what you do not do?

 

[61:3]  Most abominable in the sight of GOD is that you say what you do not do.

 

[61:4]  GOD loves those who fight in His cause united in one column, like the bricks in one wall.

 

[61:5]  Recall that Moses said to his people, “O my people, why do you hurt me, even though you know that I am GOD‘s messenger to you?” When they deviated, GOD diverted their hearts. For GOD does not guide the wicked people.

 

[61:6]  Recall that Jesus, son of Mary, said, “O Children of Israel, I am GOD‘s messenger to you, confirming the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be even more praised (Ahmad).” Then, when he showed them the clear proofs, they said, “This is profound magic.”

 

[61:7]  Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies about GOD, and he is being invited to Submission? GOD does not guide the evil people.

 

[61:8]  They wish to put out GOD‘s light with their mouths. But GOD insists upon perfecting His light, in spite of the disbelievers.

 

[61:9]  He has sent His messenger with the guidance and the true religion, and will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.

 

[61:10]  O you who believe, let Me inform you of a trade that will save you from painful retribution.

 

[61:11]  Believe in GOD and His messenger and strive in the cause of GOD with your money and your lives. This is the best deal for you, if you only knew.

 

[61:12]  In return, He forgives your sins, and admits you into gardens with flowing streams, with beautiful mansions in the gardens of Eden. This is the greatest triumph.

 

[61:13]  Additionally, you get something you truly love: support from GOD and guaranteed victory. Give good news to the believers.

 

[61:14]  O you who believe, be GOD‘s supporters, like the disciples of Jesus, son of Mary. When he said to them, “Who are my supporters towards GOD,” they said, “We are GOD‘s supporters.” Thus, a group from the Children of Israel believed, and another group disbelieved. We helped those who believed against their enemy, until they won.

Sura 62:  Friday (Al-Jumu`ah)

Number of verses in sura: 11

Order of revelation: 110

 

[62:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[62:1]  Glorifying GOD is everything in the heavens and everything on earth; the King, the Most Sacred, the Almighty, the Most Wise.

 

[62:2]  He is the One who sent to the gentiles a messenger from among them, to recite to them His revelations, purify them, and teach them the scripture and wisdom. Before this, they had gone far astray.

 

[62:3]  And to many generations subsequent to them. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

 

[62:4]  Such is GOD‘s grace that He bestows upon whomever He wills. GOD is Possessor of Infinite Grace.

 

[62:5]  The example of those who were given the Torah, then failed to uphold it, is like the donkey carrying great works of literature. Miserable indeed is the example of people who rejected GOD‘s revelations. GOD does not guide the wicked people.

 

[62:6]  Say, “O you who are Jewish, if you claim that you are GOD‘s chosen, to the exclusion of all other people, then you should long for death if you are truthful!”

 

[62:7]  They will never long for it, because of what they have committed. GOD is fully aware of the wicked.

 

[62:8]  Say, “The death that you are trying to evade will catch up with you sooner or later. Then you will be returned to the Knower of all secrets and declarations, then He will inform you of everything you had done.”

 

[62:9]  O you who believe, when the Congregational Prayer (Salat Al-Jumu`ah) is announced on Friday, you shall hasten to the commemoration of GOD, and drop all business. This is better for you, if you only knew.

 

[62:10]  Once the prayer is completed, you may spread through the land to seek GOD‘s bounties, and continue to remember GOD frequently, that you may succeed.

 

[62:11]  When some of them come across a business deal, or some entertainment, they rush to it and leave you standing! Say, “What GOD possesses is far better than the entertainment or the business. GOD is the best Provider.”

Sura 63:  The Hypocrites (Al-Munaafeqoon)

Number of verses in sura: 11

Order of revelation: 104

 

[63:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[63:1]  When the hypocrites come to you they say, “We bear witness that you are the messenger of GOD.” GOD knows that you are His messenger, and GOD bears witness that the hypocrites are liars.

 

[63:2]  Under the guise of their apparent faith, they repel the people from the path of GOD. Miserable indeed is what they do.

 

[63:3]  This is because they believed, then disbelieved. Hence, their minds are blocked; they do not understand.

 

[63:4]  When you see them, you may be impressed by their looks. And when they speak, you may listen to their eloquence. They are like standing logs. They think that every call is intended against them. These are the real enemies; beware of them. GOD condemns them; they have deviated.

 

[63:5]  When they are told, “Come let the messenger of GOD pray for your forgiveness,” they mockingly turn their heads, and you see them repel others and act arrogantly.

 

[63:6]  It is the same for them, whether you pray for their forgiveness, or not pray for their forgiveness; GOD will not forgive them. For GOD does not guide the wicked people.

 

[63:7]  They are the ones who say, “Do not give any money to those who followed the messenger of GOD, perhaps they abandon him!” However, GOD possesses the treasures of the heavens and the earth, but the hypocrites do not comprehend.

 

[63:8]  They say, “If we go back to the city, the powerful therein will evict the weak (and we will be victimized).” (They should know that) all dignity belongs to GOD and His messenger, and the believers. However, the hypocrites do not know.

 

[63:9]  O you who believe, do not be distracted by your money and your children from remembering GOD. Those who do this are the losers.

 

[63:10]  You shall give from our provisions to you before death comes to you, then you say, “My Lord, if only You could delay this for a short while! I would then be charitable and join the righteous!”

 

[63:11]  GOD never delays the appointed time of death for any soul.  GOD is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

Sura 64:  Mutual Blaming (Al-Taghaabun)

Number of verses in sura: 18

Order of revelation: 108

 

[64:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[64:1]  Glorifying GOD is everything in the heavens and everything on earth. To Him belongs all kingship, and to Him belongs all praise, and He is Omnipotent.

 

[64:2]  He is the One who created you, then among you there is the disbeliever, and the believer. GOD is fully Seer of everything you do.

 

[64:3]  He created the heavens and the earth for a specific purpose, designed you and perfected your design, then to Him is the final destiny.

 

[64:4]  He knows everything in the heavens and the earth, and He knows everything you conceal and everything you declare. GOD is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

 

[64:5]  Have you noted those who disbelieved in the past, then suffered the consequences of their decision? They incurred a painful retribution.

 

[64:6]  This is because their messengers went to them with clear proofs, but they said, “Shall we follow humans like us?” They disbelieved and turned away. GOD does not need them; GOD is in no need, Praiseworthy.

 

[64:7]  Those who disbelieved claim that they will not be resurrected! Yes indeed, by my Lord, you will be resurrected, and you will be held accountable for everything you have done.  This is easy for GOD to do.

 

[64:8]  Therefore, you shall believe in GOD and His messenger, and the light that we have revealed herein. GOD is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

 

[64:9]  The day will come when He summons you to the Day of Summoning. That is the Day of Mutual Blaming. Anyone who believes in GOD and leads a righteous life, He will remit his sins, and will admit him into gardens with flowing streams. They abide therein forever. This is the greatest triumph.

 

[64:10]  As for those who disbelieve and reject our revelations, they are the dwellers of the Hellfire; they abide therein forever. What a miserable destiny!

 

[64:11]  Nothing happens to you except in accordance with GOD‘s will. Anyone who believes in GOD, He will guide his heart. GOD is fully aware of all things.

 

[64:12]  You shall obey GOD and you shall obey the messenger. If you turn away, then the sole mission of our messenger is to deliver the message.

 

[64:13]  GOD: there is no other god besides Him. In GOD the believers shall trust.

 

[64:14]  O you who believe, your spouses and your children can be your enemies; beware. If you pardon, forget, and forgive, then GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

 

[64:15]  Your money and children are a test, and GOD possesses a great recompense.

 

[64:16]  Therefore, you shall reverence GOD as much as you can, and listen, and obey, and give (to charity) for your own good. Anyone who is protected from his own stinginess, these are the successful ones.

 

[64:17]  If you lend GOD a loan of righteousness, He will multiply the reward for you manifold, and forgive you. GOD is Appreciative, Clement.

 

[64:18]  The Knower of all secrets and declarations; the Almighty, Most Wise.

Sura 65:  Divorce (Al-Talaaq)

Number of verses in sura: 12

Order of revelation: 99

 

[65:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[65:1]  O you prophet, when you people divorce the women, you shall ensure that a divorce interim is fulfilled. You shall measure such an interim precisely. You shall reverence GOD your Lord. Do not evict them from their homes, nor shall you make life miserable for them, to force them to leave on their own, unless they commit a proven adultery. These are GOD‘s laws. Anyone who transgresses GOD‘s laws commits an injustice against himself. You never know; maybe GOD wills something good to come out of this.

 

[65:2]  Once the interim is fulfilled, you may reconcile with them equitably, or go through with the separation equitably. You shall have two equitable witnesses witness the divorce before GOD. This is to enlighten those who believe in GOD and the Last Day. Anyone who reverences GOD, He will create an exit for him.

 

[65:3]  And will provide for him whence he never expected. Anyone who trusts in GOD, He suffices him. GOD‘s commands are done. GOD has decreed for everything its fate.

 

[65:4]  As for the women who have reached menopause, if you have any doubts, their interim shall be three months. As for those who do not menstruate, and discover that they are pregnant, their interim ends upon giving birth. Anyone who reverences GOD, He makes everything easy for him.

 

[65:5]  This is GOD‘s command that He sends down to you. Anyone who reverences GOD, He remits his sins, and rewards him generously.

 

[65:6]  You shall allow them to live in the same home in which they lived with you, and do not make life so miserable for them that they leave on their own. If they are pregnant, you shall spend on them until they give birth. If they nurse the infant, you shall pay them for this service. You shall maintain the amicable relations among you. If you disagree, you may hire another woman to nurse the child.

 

[65:7]  The rich husband shall provide support in accordance with his means, and the poor shall provide according to the means that GOD bestowed upon him. GOD does not impose on any soul more than He has given it. GOD will provide ease after difficulty.

 

[65:8]  Many a community rebelled against the commands of its Lord and against His messengers. Consequently, we held them strictly accountable, and requited them a terrible requital.

 

[65:9]  They suffered the consequences of their decisions; a profound loss.

 

[65:10]  GOD has prepared for them severe retribution. Therefore, you shall reverence GOD, O you who possess intelligence and believed. GOD has sent down to you a message –

 

[65:11]  a messenger who recites to you GOD‘s revelations, clearly, to lead those who believe and work righteousness out of the darkness into the light. Anyone who believes in GOD and leads a righteous life, He will admit him into gardens with flowing streams; they abide therein forever. GOD will generously reward him.

 

[65:12]  GOD created seven universes and the same number of earths. The commands flow among them. This is to let you know that GOD is Omnipotent, and that GOD is fully aware of all things.

Sura 66:  Prohibition (Al-Tahreem)

Number of verses in sura: 12

Order of revelation: 107

 

[66:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[66:1]  O you prophet, why do you prohibit what GOD has made lawful for you, just to please your wives? GOD is Forgiver, Merciful.

 

[66:2]  GOD has decreed for you the laws dealing with your oaths. GOD is your Lord, and He is the Omniscient, Most Wise.

 

[66:3]  The prophet had trusted some of his wives with a certain statement, then one of them spread it, and GOD let him know about it. He then informed his wife of part of the issue, and disregarded part. She asked him, “Who informed you of this?” He said, “I was informed by the Omniscient, Most Cognizant.”

 

[66:4]  If the two of you repent to GOD, then your hearts have listened. But if you band together against him, then GOD is his ally, and so is Gabriel and the righteous believers. Also, the angels are his helpers.

 

[66:5]  If he divorces you, his Lord will substitute other wives in your place who are better than you; submitters (Muslims), believers (Mu’mins), obedient, repentant, worshipers, pious, either previously married, or virgins.

 

[66:6]  O you who believe, protect yourselves and your families from the Hellfire whose fuel is people and rocks. Guarding it are stern and powerful angels who never disobey GOD; they do whatever they are commanded to do.

 

[66:7]  O you who disbelieved, do not apologize today. You are being requited only for what you did.

 

[66:8]  O you who believe, you shall repent to GOD a firm repentance. Your Lord will then remit your sins and admit you into gardens with flowing streams. On that day, GOD will not disappoint the prophet and those who believed with him.  Their light will radiate in front of them and to their right. They will say, “Our Lord, perfect our light for us, and forgive us; You are Omnipotent.”

 

[66:9]  O prophet, struggle against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be stern with them. Their abode is Gehenna, and a miserable destiny.

 

[66:10]  GOD cites as examples of those who disbelieved the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot. They were married to two of our righteous servants, but they betrayed them and, consequently, they could not help them at all against GOD. The two of them were told, “Enter the Hell-fire with those who deserved it.”

 

[66:11]  And GOD cites as an example of those who believed the wife of Pharaoh. She said, “My Lord, build a home for me at You in Paradise, and save me from Pharaoh and his works; save me from the transgressing people.”

 

[66:12]  Also Mary, the Amramite. She maintained her chastity, then we blew into her from our spirit. She believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures; she was obedient.

Sura 67:  Kingship (Al-Mulk)

Number of verses in sura: 30

Order of revelation: 77

 

[67:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[67:1]  Most exalted is the One in whose hands is all kingship, and He is Omnipotent.

 

[67:2]  The One who created death and life for the purpose of distinguishing those among you who would do better. He is the Almighty, the Forgiving.

 

[67:3]  He created seven universes in layers. You do not see any imperfection in the creation by the Most Gracious. Keep looking; do you see any flaw?

 

[67:4]  Look again and again; your eyes will come back stumped and conquered.

 

[67:5]  We adorned the lowest universe with lamps, and guarded its borders with projectiles against the devils; we prepared for them a retribution in Hell.

 

[67:6]  For those who disbelieved in their Lord, the retribution of Gehenna. What a miserable destiny.

 

[67:7]  When they get thrown therein, they hear its furor as it fumes.

 

[67:8]  It almost explodes from rage. Whenever a group is thrown therein, its guards would ask them, “Did you not receive a warner?”

 

[67:9]  They would answer, “Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we disbelieved and said, `GOD did not reveal anything. You are totally astray.’ ”

 

[67:10]  They also say, “If we heard or understood, we would not be among the dwellers of Hell!”

 

[67:11]  Thus, they confessed their sins. Woe to the dwellers of Hell.

 

[67:12]  As for those who reverence their Lord, when alone in their privacy, they have attained forgiveness and a great recompense.

 

[67:13]  Whether you keep your utterances secret, or declare them, He is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

 

[67:14]  Should He not know what He created? He is the Sublime, Most Cognizant.

 

[67:15]  He is the One who put the Earth at your service. Roam its corners, and eat from His provisions. To Him is the final summoning.

 

[67:16]  Have you guaranteed that the One in heaven will not strike the earth and cause it to tumble?

 

[67:17]  Have you guaranteed that the One in heaven will not send upon you a violent storm? Will you then appreciate the value of My warning?

 

[67:18]  Others before them have disbelieved; how terrible was My requital!

 

[67:19]  Have they not seen the birds above them lined up in columns and spreading their wings? The Most Gracious is the One who holds them in the air. He is Seer of all things.

 

[67:20]  Where are those soldiers who can help you against the Most Gracious? Indeed, the disbelievers are deceived.

 

[67:21]  Who is there to provide for you, if He withholds His provisions? Indeed, they have plunged deep into transgression and aversion.

 

[67:22]  Is one who walks while slumped over on his face better guided, or one who walks straight on the right path?

 

[67:23]  Say, “He is the One who initiated you, and granted you the hearing, the eyes, and the brains. Rarely are you appreciative.”

 

[67:24]  Say, “He is the One who placed you on earth, and before Him you will be summoned.”

 

[67:25]  They challenge: “When will that prophecy come to pass, if you are truthful?”

 

[67:26]  Say, “Such knowledge is with GOD; I am no more than a manifest warner.”

 

[67:27]  When they see it happening, the faces of those who disbelieved will turn miserable, and it will be proclaimed: “This is what you used to mock.”

 

[67:28]  Say, “Whether GOD decides to annihilate me and those with me, or to shower us with His mercy, who is there to protect the disbelievers from a painful retribution?”

 

[67:29]  Say, “He is the Most Gracious; we believe in Him, and we trust in Him. You will surely find out who is really far astray.”

 

[67:30]  Say, “What if your water sinks away, who will provide you with pure water?”

Sura 68:  The Pen (Al-Qalam)

Number of verses in sura: 52

Order of revelation: 2

 

[68:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[68:1]  NuN, the pen, and what they (the people) write.

 

[68:2]  You have attained a great blessing from your Lord; you are not crazy.

 

[68:3]  You have attained a recompense that is well deserved.

 

[68:4]  You are blessed with a great moral character.

 

[68:5]  You will see, and they will see.

 

[68:6]  Which of you are condemned.

 

[68:7]  Your Lord is fully aware of those who strayed off His path, and He is fully aware of those who are guided.

 

[68:8]  Do not obey the rejectors.

 

[68:9]  They wish that you compromise, so they too can compromise.

 

[68:10]  Do not obey every lowly swearer.

 

[68:11]  A slanderer, a backbiter.

 

[68:12]  Forbidder of charity, a transgressor, a sinner.

 

[68:13]  Unappreciative, and greedy.

 

[68:14]  Even though he possessed enough money and children.

 

[68:15]  When our revelations are recited to him, he says, “Tales from the past!”

 

[68:16]  We will mark his face.

 

[68:17]  We have tested them like we tested the owners of the garden who swore that they will harvest it in the morning.

 

[68:18]  They were so absolutely sure.

 

[68:19]  A passing (storm) from your Lord passed by it while they were asleep.

 

[68:20]  By morning, it was barren.

 

[68:21]  They called on each other in the morning.
