Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah The Private Apartments, The Inner Apartments, The Chambers(al-Hujurat)
49:1 O you who have Believed! Do not go beyond ‘from in between the two hands’ (from the limits allowed) of Allah and His Messenger; and pay obedience to Allah. Surely, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing .
49:2 O you who have Believed! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet; and nor speak aloud to him in talk like the loudness of some of you towards some (others) lest your deeds go in vain while you perceive not .
49:3 Verily, those who lower their voices in the presence of Allah’s Messenger, they are those whose hearts Allah has tested for piety. For them is forgiveness and a mighty reward .
49:4 Truly, those who give you a call (while they are) at a distance from (your private) cubicles, most of them use not (their) sense .
49:5 And if (it was) that they showed patience till you could come out to them, surely, it would have been better for them. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, continuously Merciful .
49:6 O you who have Believed! If a Fasiq (one who is disobedient) approached you people with a news, then properly verify (the news) lest you behave with a nation in ignorance (and) afterwards you become regretful over what you have done .
49:7 And do realise that amongst you (is) the Messenger of Allah. If he obeys you in the major portion of (any) matter, you would surely be in trouble, but Allah has endeared the Faith to you and He has established it in your hearts as something beautiful and to be proud of, and has made hateful to you Al-Kufr (disbelief and rejection), and Al-Fusuq (the disobediences and rebellions), and Al-Isyan [breahead of state the limits (set in Al-Kitab)]. Those people: they are those who stay in Guidance —
49:8 (this becomes) a Grace from Allah and a Favour. And Allah (is) All-Knowing, All-Wise .
49:9 And if two groups of the Believers are engaged in fighting, then make peace and reform between those two. Then if one of them went beyond limits against the other, then fight that (group) which crosses the limits until that (group) takes a turn to the ordainment of Allah. Then if the (erring group) complied, then make reconciliation between those two with justice, and be equitable. Surely, Allah likes those who behave in equality .
49:10 Certainly, what (is a fact is that) the Believers are brothers (to one another). So make reconciliation between two of your (warring) brothers. And pay obedience to Allah so that you may be placed under Mercy .
49:11 O you who have Believed! A nation shall not scoff at (another) nation. May be that the (latter) are better than them. And nor (shall scoff) women at (some other) women, may be that (the latter) are better than those (former, who scoffed). And do not defame your own persons, and do not insult one another by (allotting ridiculous) titles (or nicknames). (What) an evil is the name indicating Fusuq after (one has attained) the Faith. And whosoever does not desist and repent, then those people: they (very ones are) Az-Zalimun.
49:12 O you who have Believed! Avoid most of the suspicion. Surely some types of suspicions (are) sin. And spy not, and some of you shall not back-bite some (others). Would anyone of you like that he may devour the flesh of his dead brother? So (definitely) you people disliked and hated it. And pay obedience to Allah. Verily, Allah is Oft-Returning (in Forgiveness), continuously Merciful .
49:13 O you mankind! Verily We, We created you from a male and a female, and made you into sub-tribes and tribes in order that you may recognise each other. Verily, more honourable of you in the Sight of Allah (is that) who is more obedient amongst you. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware .
49:14 The bedouins said: “We have accepted Faith.” Say: “You have not (yet) developed Faith, but you (only) say, ‘we have submitted (to Islam)', and surely the Faith has not entered in your hearts." And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not leave unaccounted anything out of your (good) deeds. Truly, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, continuously Merciful .
49:15 Certainly what (is a fact is that) the Believers are those who have Believed in Allah and His Messenger, (and) afterward do not doubt; and they strove hard with their possessions and their persons in the Cause of Allah. Those people: they are those who stand on truth .
49:16 Say: “Will you acquaint Allah with your religion?" And Allah Knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. And Allah is All-Aware of every thing.
49:17 They present it as a favour to you that they have accepted Islam. Tell (them): “Count not your Islam as a favour upon me. Rather, Allah has conferred a favour upon you that He guided you to Faith, if you are those who speak the truth ."
49:18 Verily, Allah Knows the unseen of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is All-Seer of what you do.
