1 . All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth glorifieth Allah , and He is the Mighty , the Wise .
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 reckoned 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!
3 . And if Allah had not decreed migration for them , He verily would have punished them in this world , and theirs in the Hereafter is the punishment of the Fire .
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 .
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 .
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 .
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 .
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 .
9 . Those who entered the city and the faith before them love these 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 successful .
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 rancor toward those who believe . Our Lord! Thou art Full of Pity , Merciful .
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 .
12 . ( For ) indeed if they are driven out they go not out with them , and indeed if they are attacked they help not , and indeed if they had helped them they would have turned and fled , and then they would not have been victorious .
13 . Ye are more awful as a fear in their bosoms than Allah . That is because they are a folk who understand not .
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 .
15 . On the likeness of those ( who suffered ) a short time before them , they taste the ill effects of their conduct , and theirs is painful punishment .
16 . ( And the hypocrites are ) on the likeness of the devil when he telleth man to disbelieve , then , when be disbelieveth saith : Lo! I am quit of thee . Lo! I fear Allah , the Lord of the Worlds .
17 . And the consequence for both will be that they are in the Fire , therein abiding . Such is the reward of evil doers .
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 .
19 . And be not ye as those who forgot Allah , therefore He caused them to forget their souls . Such are the evil doers .
20 . Not equal are the owners of the Fire and the owners of the Garden . The owners of the Garden , they are the victorious .
21 . If We had caused this Quran 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 .
22 . He is Allah , than whom there is no other God , the Knower of the invisible and the visible . He is the Beneficent , the Merciful .
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 ) .
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 Wise .
