1-30 | 31-60 | 61-75

1. They ask thee concerning the spoils of war. Say thou: the spoils of war are Allah's and the apostle's. So fear Allah, and set right the matter among you, and obey Allah and His apostle if ye are believers.
2. The believers are only those whose hearts thrill with fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His revelations are rehearsed unto them, they increase their faith and who trust in their Lord.
3. Who establish prayer and who expend of that wherewith We have provided them.
4. Those: it is they who are the true believers. For them are degrees with their Lord and forgiveness and a provision honourable.
5. This is like what time thy Lord had caused thee to go forthfrom thy house for a right cause, while a party among the believers were averse.
6. Disputing with thee respecting the right cause after it had become manifest, as though they were led forth unto death while they looked on.
7. And recall what time Allah was promising you one of the two parties that it should be yours, and ye would fain to have that the one without; Whilst Allah besought arms were yours to justify the truth by His words and to cut off the root of the infidels.
8. In order that he might justify the truth and falsify the false even though the guilty ones were averse.
9. And recall what time ye implored our Lord and He answered you: verily I am about to succour you with a thousand of angels rank in rank.
10. And Allah made not this save as a glad tidings, and that your hearts might thereby be set at rest; and succour cometh not but from Allah. Verily Allah is Mighty, Wise.
11. Recall what time He caused slumber to cover you as a security from Himself, and He sent down rain upon you from heaven that he might cleanse you thereby and take away from you the pollution of the Satan, and that he might gird up your hearts and make your feet firm thereby.
12. And recall what time thy Lord inspired the angels: verily I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed; will cast horror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so smite them above the neck and smite of them every fingertip.
13. This, because they have resisted Allah and His apostle; and whosoever resisteth Allah and His apostle, then verily Allah severe in retribution.
14. This! taste it then, and know that for the infidels is the torment of the Fire.
15. O Ye who believe! whenever ye those who disbelieve matching meet slowly turn to them not your backs.
16. And whosoever turneth his back to them on such a day, unless it be swerving to a fight or wriggling round to anot her company, hath surely drawn upon himself indignation from Allah, and his resort is Hell--an evil destination!
17. Wherefore ye slew them not, but Allah slew them, and thou thrtwest not, When thou threWest, but Allah threw, in order that he might prove the believers with a goodly proving from Him. Verily Allah is Hearing, Knowing.
18. Thus! And know that Allah weakenoth the contrivance of infidels.
19. If ye besought a judgement then surely a judgement hath come unto you. And if ye desist it Will be better for you; and if ye return. We will return; and your host shall avail you not, although numerous it be; and know that verily Allah is with the believers.
20. O Ye who believe! obey Allah and His apostle and turn not away therefrom while ye hearken.
21. And be not like unto those who say: we hear, whereas they hearken not.
22. Verily the vilest of beasts with Allah are the deaf and dumb who understand not.
23. And had Allah known in them any good He would surely have made them hearken; and even if He made them hear, they would surely turn away as backsliders.
24. O Ye who believe! answer Allah and the apostle when he calleth you to that which quickeneth you, and know that verily Allah interposeth between a man and his heart, and that verily unto Him ye all shall be gathered.
25. And fear the trial that shall not afflict those alone who among you do Wrong; and know that verily Allah severe in chastising.
26. And remember what time ye were few and downtrodden in the land fearing that the people would snatch you away; then He gave you refuge and strengthened you with His succour, and provided you with good things that haply ye might return thanks.
27. O Ye who believe! defraud not Allah and the apostle, nor defraud your trusts while ye know.
28. And know that your riches and your children are but a temptation, and that verily Allah: with Him is a mighty hire.
29. O Ye who believe! if ye fear Allah He will make for you a distinction and will expiate for you your misdeeds, and forgive you; and Allah is Owner of Mighty Grace.
30. And recall what time those who disbelieved were plotting against thee to confine thee or to slay thee or to drive thee forth: they were plotting and Allah was plotting, and Allah is the Best of plotters.
