as rendered by Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar

Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah Exile, Banishment(al-Hashr)
---
59:1 Whatever is in the heavens glorified God and whatever is in and on the earth. And He is The Almighty, The Wise.
59:2 It is He Who drove out those who were ungrateful—among the People of the Book—from their abodes at the first assembling. You thought that they would not go forth. And they thought that they are ones who are secure in their fortresses from God. But God approached them from where they anticipate not. And He hurled alarm into their hearts. They devastate their own houses with their own hands and the hands of the ones who believe. Then, take warning, O those imbued with insight!
59:3 If God prescribed not banishment for them, He would have punished them in the present. And for them in the world to come would be the punishment of the fire.
59:4 That is because they make a breach with God and His Messenger. And whoever made a breach with God, then, truly, God is Severe in repayment.
59:5 Whatever palm trees you severed or left them as ones that arise from their roots, it was with the permission of God and so that He might cover with shame the ones who disobey.
59:6 And what God gave as spoils of war to His Messenger from them, you spurred not an animal for an expedition, neither any horse nor riding camel, but God gives authority to His Messengers over whomever He wills. And God is Powerful over everything.
59:7 What God gave to His Messenger as spoils of war from the people of the towns is for God and His Messenger and the possessors of kinship and the orphans and the needy and the traveler of the way so that it be changing not hands between the rich among you. And whatever the Messenger gave you, take it. And refrain yourselves from what he prohibited you. And be Godfearing of God. Truly, God is Severe in repayment.
59:8 For the poor who were of the ones who emigrate, those who were driven out from their abodes and their property, looking for grace from God and His contentment and they help God and His Messenger, there is also a share. Those, they are the ones who are sincere.
59:9 And those who took their abodes as dwellings and had belief before them, love them who emigrated to them and they find not in their breasts any need for what the emigrants were given and hold them in greater favor over themselves even though they themselves had been in destitution. And whoever is protected from his own stinginess, then, those, they are the ones who prosper.
59:10 And those who drew near after them, they say: Our Lord! Forgive us and our brothers/sisters who preceded us in belief and make not in our hearts any grudge against those who believed. Our Lord! Truly, Thou art Gentle, Compassionate.
59:11 Hast thou not considered those who are ones who are hypocrites? They say to their brothers—those who were ungrateful— among the People of the Book: If you were driven out, we, certainly, will go forth with you and we will never obey anyone against you ever. And if you were fought against, we will, certainly, help you. And God bears witness that they, truly, are ones who lie.
59:12 Certainly, if they were driven out, they would not go forth with them. And if they were fought against they would not help them. And if they had helped them, they would turn their backs. Again, they would not be helped by them.
59:13 Truly, you are a more severe fright in their breasts than God. That is because they are a folk who understand not.
59:14 They fight not against you altogether, but in fortified towns or from behind walls. Their might among themselves is very severe. You would assume them united, but their hearts are diverse. That is because they are a folk who are not reasonable.
59:15 As the likeness of those who were before them, they experienced the immediate mischief of their affair and for them is a painful punishment.
59:16 As the likeness of Satan when he said to the human being: Be Ungrateful! Then, when he was ungrateful, Satan said: I am free of thee. I fear God, the Lord of the worlds.
59:17 The Ultimate End of both of them will be that they be in the fire, ones who will dwell in it forever. And that is the recompense of the ones who are unjust.
59:18 O those who believed! Be Godfearing of God and let every soul look on what is put forward for tomorrow. And be Godfearing of God. Truly, God is Aware of what you do.
59:19 And be not like those who forgot God and He caused them to forget themselves. Those, they are the ones who disobey.
59:20 The Companions of the Fire are not equal to the Companions of the Garden. The Companions of the Garden, they are the ones who are victorious.
59:21 If We had caused this, the Quran, to descend on a mountain, thou woudst have seen it as that which is humbled, one that is split open from dreading God. And there are the parables that We propound for humanity so that perhaps they will reflect.
59:22 He is God; there is no god but He, One Who Knows of the unseen and the visible. He is The Merciful, The Compassionate.
59:23 He is God besides whom there is no god but He, The King, The Holy, The Peaceable, One Who is The Bestower, Preserver, The Almighty, The Compeller, The One Who is The Supreme. Glory be to God above partners they ascribe.
59:24 He is God, the One Who is Creator, The One Who Fashions, The One Who is The Giver of Form. To Him belongs the Fairer Names. Whatever is in the heavens glorifies Him and whatever is in and on the earth and He is The Almighty, The Wise.
