as rendered by Mir Aneesuddin

Mir Aneesuddin rendition of Surah The Family of Imran, The House of Imran(al-Imran)
---
3:1 Alif Laam Miim.
3:2 Allah, there is no god except Him, the Living, the Eternally Existing.
3:3 He has sent down on you the book containing the truth, confirming that which was before it. And He had sent down the Torah and the Injeel
3:4 before, for the guidance of human beings. And He has sent down the distinction (between right and wrong, the Quran). Those who do not believe in the signs of Allah, for them there is certainly a severe punishment, and Allah is Mighty, the Inflictor of retribution.
3:5 Certainly, nothing is hidden from Allah in the earth or in the sky.
3:6 He it is Who gives you form in the wombs, as He wills, there is no god except Him, the Mighty, the Wise.
3:7 He it is Who has sent down the book to you, in it are statements which are decisive, they are the basis of the book and others are allegorical. So those in whose hearts is (a desire for) deviation from the right, they follow that which is allegorical in it, seeking to mislead and seeking to interpret it, and no one knows its interpretation except Allah; and those sound in knowledge say, “We believe in it, all is from our Fosterer, and no one minds except those who have understanding.
3:8 Our Fosterer ! do not let our hearts deviate from the right after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You, You are the One Who grants.
3:9 Our Fosterer ! one day You will gather (all) human beings, there is no doubt in it, Allah certainly does not go against (His) promise.”
3:10 Those who do not believe, their wealth and their children will certainly not keep them safe from Allah in anything; and they are the persons who will be the fuel of the fire,
3:11 like the people of Firawn and those before them, they denied Our signs, so Allah caught them for their sins and Allah is severe in requiting.
3:12 Say to those who do not believe, "You will be overcome and gathered towards hell, and it is an evil place of habitation."
3:13 Indeed there was a sign for you in the meeting of the two groups (at the battle of Badr) , one party fighting in the way of Allah and the others were infidels. They saw twice their numbers (with) the sight of the eye (that is, it was not imagination) and Allah strengthens with His help whom He wills. In this there is certainly a lesson for those who have insight.
3:14 Beautified for mankind is the love of lusty feelings (that arise) due to women, and sons and treasures hoarded with gold and silver and horses of mark (means of conveyance) and cattle and tilth, that is the provision of the life of this world, while the best home is with Allah.
3:15 Say, "Shall I inform you of something better than that? For those who guard (against evil), there are gardens with their Fosterer for staying in them, beneath which rivers flow, and pure mates and pleasure from Allah, and Allah is the Seer of His servants,
3:16 who say: Our Fosterer! we certainly believe so protectively forgive us our sins and save us from the punishment of the fire,
3:17 the patient and the truthful and the devoutly obedient and those who spend and those who ask for protective forgiveness in the early hours of morning."
3:18 Allah bears witness that there is no god except Him and the angels and possessors of knowledge established on justice (too, that ) there is no god except Him, the Mighty the Wise.
3:19 (True) religion with Allah is certainly Al-Islam *. And those who were given the book differed only after the knowledge (that) had come to them, due to mutual envy. And whoever does not believe in the signs of Allah, then Allah is certainly Quick at (settling) the account. * Submission to the Will of Allah in accordance with the instructions of prophet Muhammed
3:20 So if they dispute with you then say, "I have submitted myself (totally) to Allah and (so have) those who follow me," and say to those who were given the book and those who are not learned, "Do you submit?" So if they submit, then indeed they are rightly guided, but if they turn away then (the responsibility) upon you is only conveyance of the message and Allah is the Seer of His servants.
3:21 Convey the news of a painful punishment to those who do not believe in the signs of Allah and slay the prophets without having the right to do so and slay those who enjoin justice from among human beings.
3:22 Those are the persons whose deeds have become fruitless in the world and the hereafter, and they have no helpers.
3:23 Did you not consider those who were given a part of the book? (When) they are called towards the book of Allah that it may decide between them, then a sect of them turn back and they keep away.
3:24 That is because they say, "The fire shall not touch us except for a certain number of days." And that which they have forged deceives them in their religion.
3:25 So how will it be when We will gather them on a day, about which there is no doubt, and every soul will be paid in full for that which it earned and injustice will not be done to them.
3:26 Say,"O Allah! owner of authority, You give authority to whom You will, and You take away authority from whom You will, and You give the might to whom You will and You disgrace whom You will, in Your hand is good, You certainly have power over everything.
3:27 You make the night to enter into the day and You make the day to enter into the night and You bring out the living from the dead and You bring out the dead from the living and You provide without measure to whom You will."
3:28 Do not let the believers take infidels as friends besides believers, and whoever does that then there is nothing (for him) from Allah in anything, except that you guard yourselves against them guarding carefully, and Allah makes you cautious of Himself and towards Allah is the destination.
3:29 Say, "Whether you hide that which is in your bosoms or manifest it, Allah knows it, and He knows whatever is in the skies and whatever is in the earth and Allah has power over everything.
3:30 The day every soul will find that which it did of good present (before it) along with that which it did of evil, it shall wish that between it (soul) and the (evil) there were a long distance. And Allah makes you cautious of Himself and Allah is full of pity for (His) servants."
3:31 Say, "If you love Allah then follow me, Allah will love you and protectively forgive you your sins and Allah is Protectively Forgiving, Merciful."
3:32 Say, "Obey Allah and the messenger." But if they turn away, then Allah certainly does not like the infidels.
3:33 Allah certainly selected Adam and Nuh and the family of Ibrahim and the family of Imran above the worlds.
3:34 Some of them were offspring of the others, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.
3:35 When the wife of Imran said, "My Fosterer ! I vow to you that which is in my womb to be set free (for your service), so accept (it) from me. You are certainly Hearing, Knowing."
3:36 Then when she delivered it, she said, "My Fosterer! I have delivered it a female." And Allah knew best what she had delivered, and the male is not like the female. "And I have named her Maryam and I seek Your protection for her and her offspring, from the devil, the outcast."
3:37 So her Fosterer accepted her with a good acceptance and made her (Maryam) grow into a good growth and gave her into the guardianship of Zakariyya. Whenever Zakariyya entered the sanctuary to (see) her, he found provision (food) with her, he said, "O Maryam! from where (does) this (provision) come to you?" She said, "It is from (that which is ) with Allah." Allah certainly provides without measure to whom He wills.
3:38 There did Zakariyya pray to his Fosterer saying, "O my Fosterer! grant me from Yourself good offspring, You are certainly the Hearer of prayer."
3:39 So when he stood worshipping in the sanctuary, the angels announced to him that, "Allah conveys to you the good news of Yahya, confirmer of the word from Allah and a chief, and chaste and a prophet from among the righteous."
3:40 He said, "My Fosterer! how can I have a son when I have reached old age and my wife is barren?" He (Allah) said, "Like that, Allah does what He wills."
3:41 He said, "My Fosterer! appoint a sign for me, "He said", "The sign for you is that you will not speak to human beings for three days except by gesture, and remember your Fosterer much and glorify (Him) in the evening and the morning."
3:42 And when the angels said, "O Maryam ! Allah has certainly chosen you and cleaned you and chosen you above the women of the worlds
3:43 O Maryam! be devoutly obedient to your Fosterer and prostrate and bow down with those who bow down."
3:44 That is from the news of the unseen (which) We communicate to you, and you were not with them when they cast their pens* (to know) which of them should be the guardian of Maryam nor were you with them when they disputed (about this issue). * Lots
3:45 When the angels said, "O Maryam! certainly, Allah conveys to you the good news of a word from Him, his name is the Messiah, Isa, the son of Maryam, worthy of regard in the world and the hereafter, and from among those who are near (to Allah).
3:46 And he will talk to human beings (while) in the cradle and (in) old age, and (he will be) from among the righteous.
3:47 (She) said, "O My Fosterer ! how can I have a son when man has not touched me?" He said, "Like that, Allah creates what He wills, when He decrees an affair then, He says to only, "Be," so it is. it is.
3:48 And He will teach him the book and wisdom and the Torah and the Injeel,
3:49 and (he will be) a messenger sent to the children of Israel, (saying) that: I have come to you with a sign from your Fosterer, that I make for you from clay, a figure like that of a bird, then I blow into it, so it becomes a bird by the permission of Allah; and I heal the blind by birth and the leper and I bring to life the dead by Allah's permission and I inform you of that which you eat and that which you store in your houses; in that there is certainly a sign for you if you are believers.
3:50 And I am a testifier for that which is before me of the Torah, and (I have come) to make lawful for you something of that which was forbidden to you and I have come to you with a sign from your Fosterer so fear Allah and obey me.
3:51 Allah is certainly my Fosterer and your Fosterer, so serve Him, this is the straight path."
3:52 So when Isa perceived infidelity from them, (he) said, "Who will be my helpers for (the sake of) Allah." The disciples said, "We are Allah's helpers, we believe in Allah and you bear witness that we have submitted (as Muslims).
3:53 Our Fosterer ! we believe in that which you have sent down and we follow the messenger, so record us with those who bear witness."
3:54 So they planned and Allah planned (too) and Allah is the Best of planners.
3:55 When Allah said, "O Isa ! I will take you back and raise you towards Myself and clean you from those who do not believe; and towards the day of resurrection, I will make those who follow you, above those who do not believe, then towards Me you will all return then I will judge between you in (matters) in which you disagreed.
3:56 Then as for those who do not believe, I will punish them with a severe punishment in the world and the hereafter and for them there will be no helpers." and the hereafter and for them there will be no helpers."
3:57 And as for those who believe and do righteous works, He will give them their rewards in full, and Allah does not like those who are unjust.
3:58 This (is what) We read to you, from the signs and a wise reminder.
3:59 The likeness of Isa, with Allah is certainly as the likeness of Adam. (He) proportioned him from the soil, then said to him, "Be," so he was (created).
3:60 (This is) the truth from your Fosterer, so do not be of those who doubt.
3:61 Therefore, if anyone disputes with you in this (affair) after the knowledge which has come to you, then say, "Come! let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and ourselves and yourselves, then we will pray humbly and invoke the curse of Allah on the deniers (of truth)."
3:62 This is certainly the true narrative and there is no one (as) god except Allah and Allah is certainly the Mighty, the Wise.
3:63 So if they turn back, then Allah is certainly the Knower of those who are corrupt.
3:64 Say, "O owners of the book! come to an equitable word between us and you, that we will not serve (worship) anyone except Allah and we will not associate any partner with Him and some of us will not take others as fosterers, besides Allah." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are those who have submitted (as Muslims)."
3:65 O owners of the book ! why do you dispute about Ibrahim, when Torah and the Injeel were sent down only after him. What ! then have you no sense?
3:66 Yes, you are those who disputed about that of which you had knowledge but why do you dispute about that of which you have no knowledge? And Allah knows and you do not know. dispute about that of which you have no knowledge? And Allah knows and you do not know.
3:67 Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian but he was upright, one who submitted (as a Muslim), and he was not of the polytheists.
3:68 The nearest among mankind to Ibrahim are certainly those who followed him and this prophet and those who believe, and Allah is the Guardian of the believers.
3:69 A party of the owners of the book like to mislead you, and they do not mislead (anyone) except themselves but they do not perceive.
3:70 O owners of the book! why do you not believe in the signs of Allah when you are witnesses?
3:71 O owners of the book ! why do you cover the truth with falsehood and hide the truth when you know?
3:72 And a party of the owners of the book say, "Believe in (the Quran), which has been sent down on those who believe, at the beginning of the day and reject it at the end of it, so that they may return (to infidelity),
3:73 and believe only in him who follows your religion." Say, "Guidance of Allah is certainly the guidance, (and any) one can be given the like of what you were given (as guidance)." Otherwise they will dispute with you before your Fosterer. Say, "Grace is certainly in the hand of Allah, He gives it to whom He wills, and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.
3:74 He selects for His mercy whom He wills and Allah is the Possessor of great grace."
3:75 And from among the owners of the book, there is he who, if you entrust him with a heap of wealth, he will pay it back to you, and from among them there is he who, if you entrust him with a dinar (even a small account), he will not pay it back to you unless you stand over him (demanding it). That is because they say, "There is no way (responsibility) upon us in (connection with) the unlearned people (Arabs)," and they speak a lie against Allah while they know. it). That is because they say, "There is no way (responsibility) upon us in (connection with) the unlearned people (Arabs)," and they speak a lie against Allah while they know.
3:76 Why not ! whoever fulfils his agreement and guards (against evil), then Allah certainly likes those who guard (against evil).
3:77 Those who sell Allah's agreement and their oaths for a small price, those are certainly the persons for whom there is no portion in the hereafter and Allah will not speak to them and He will not (even) look towards them on the day of resurrection and He will not purify them and for them there will be a painful punishment.
3:78 And from among them there is a party who twist their tongues (in such a manner while reading) the book that you certainly consider it (to be) from the book, although it is not from the book, and they say it is from Allah though it is not from Allah and they speak a lie against Allah while they know.
3:79 It is not (possible) for a man that Allah should give him the book and wisdom and prophet hood, then he should say to people, "Be my servants (worshippers) besides Allah," but (he would say), "You be servants of the Fosterer because you teach the book and because you study (it)."
3:80 And neither would he command you that you should take the angels and prophets as fosterers. What ! would he command you to be infidels after you have submitted (as Muslims)?
3:81 And when Allah took a pledge from the prophets, "Behold ! that which I give you of the book and wisdom, then (when) there comes to you a messenger confirming that which is with you, you must definitely believe in him and you must definitely help him (probably by propagating the news of the coming of prophet Muhammed, among their respective followers)." He asked, "Do you agree and do you accept My burden (responsibility) concerning this (matter)?" They replied, "We agree." He said, "Then bear witness and I am (also) with you from among those who bear witness."
3:82 So whoever turns back after this, then those only are the transgressors.
3:83 What ! do they seek a religion other than the religion of Allah, when to Him submits whoever (and whatever) is in the skies and the earth willingly and unwillingly and towards Him they will be returned?
3:84 Say, "We believe in Allah and that which has been sent down on us and that which had been sent down on Ibrahim and Ismael and Ishaq and Yaqub and the tribes and that which had been given to Musa and Isa and the prophets, from their Fosterer, we make no distinction between any of them and we submit to Him (as Muslims)."
3:85 And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, then it will not be accepted from him and in the hereafter he will be among those who are the losers.
3:86 How would Allah guide a people who became infidels after their belief, although they had borne witness that the messenger is true and there had come to them clear proofs? And Allah does not guide the unjust people.
3:87 The reward of such persons is that, upon them is the curse of Allah and the angels and mankind, all together.
3:88 They will remain in it, the punishment will not be lightened on them nor will they be given time,
3:89 except those who repent after that and act aright, for Allah is certainly Protectively Forgiving, Merciful.
3:90 Those who became infidels after their belief then increased in infidelity, their repentance will certainly not be accepted, and those are the persons who are astray.
3:91 Those who became infidels and died while they were infidels, (even) the earth full of gold will not be accepted from anyone of them if he (offers it to) ransom (himself) with it, those are certainly the persons for whom there is a painful punishment and for them there will be no helpers.
3:92 You will never attain righteousness unless you spend from that which you love, and whatever you spend of anything, then Allah certainly has knowledge of it.
3:93 All food was lawful to the children of Israel except that which Israel (Yaqub) had made unlawful for himself before the Torah was sent down. Say, "Bring the Torah and read it, if you are truthful."
3:94 94 So whoever fabricates a lie against Allah after that, then those are the persons who are unjust.
3:95 Say, "Allah has spoken the truth, then follow the religion (dictated by) Ibrahim the upright and he was not of the polytheists."
3:96 The first house layed down for mankind is certainly the one at Becca (Kaaba at Mecca), one (which is) blessed and a guidance for the worlds.
3:97 In it are clear signs, the place where Ibrahim stood, and whoever enters it, he is in security. And the pilgrimage to the house (Kaaba, is a duty incumbent) on human beings, for (the sake of ) Allah, on him who is able to find a way to it (one who has the capacity and can afford the journey), but he who rejects, then Allah is Independent of the worlds.
3:98 Say, "O owners of the book ! why do you reject the signs of Allah when Allah is a Witness over what you do?"
3:99 Say, "O owners of the book ! why do you stop from the path of Allah, one who believes, seeking crookedness in it while you (yourselves) are witnesses? And Allah is not unaware of what you do."
3:100 O you who believe ! if you obey a party of those who were given the book, they will turn you back as infidels after your belief.
3:101 And how would you reject, when you are those to whom the statements of Allah are read and His messenger (too) is among you? And whoever holds firmly to Allah, he indeed is guided to the straight path.
3:102 O you who believe ! fear Allah as He ought to be feared and do not die unless you are Muslims.
3:103 And hold together (and be united) through the rope of Allah and do not be divided. And remember the favour of Allah on you, when you were enemies then He united your hearts, so by His favour you became brothers, and you were on the edge of a pit of fire then He saved you from it, thus does Allah make clear to you His signs that you may receive guidance.
3:104 And there should be a leading group among you who should invite (people) towards good and enjoin that which is recognised (as good) and forbid that which is not recognised (as good), and those are the persons who are successful.
3:105 And do not be like those who were divided (among themselves) and disagreed after the clear proofs had come to them, and those are the persons for whom there is a great punishment.
3:106 On the day when (some) faces will be white while (other) faces will be black, then as for those whose faces will be black, (it will be said), "Did you become infidels after your belief ? Then taste the punishment because you did not believe."
3:107 And as for those whose faces will be white, then they will be the persons who will stay in the mercy of Allah.
3:108 Those are the statements of Allah which we read to you correctly, and Allah does not intend injustice to the worlds.
3:109 And whatever is in the skies and whatever is in the earth is Allah's, and (all) the affairs are returned to Allah.
3:110 You are the best community raised for humanity. You enjoin that which is recognised (as good) and forbid that which is not recognised (as good) and you believe in Allah; and had the owners of the book (too) believed, it would have been better for them, among them there are believers, but most of them are transgressors.
3:111 They will not harm you except annoying (you), and if they fight with you, they will turn their backs to you, then they will not be helped.
3:112 Disgrace was made to strike them wherever they were found, except (when they sought) means of Allah and means of human beings, and they became deserving of the anger of Allah, and wretchedness was made to strike them. That was because they used to reject the signs of Allah and kill the prophets without having the right to do so. That was because they disobeyed and they were the persons who exceeded the limits.
3:113 They (all) are not the same. From among the owners of the book, (there is) an upright community, they read the statements of Allah during the hours of the night and they prostrate.
3:114 They believe in Allah and the period hereafter and enjoin that which is recognised (as good) and forbid that which is not recognised (as good) and hasten in doing good works, and they are of the righteous.
3:115 And whatever good they do, they will not be refused (the reward of) it, and Allah is the Knower of those who guard (against evil).
3:116 Those who do not believe, their wealth and their children will certainly not keep them safe from Allah in anything, and those are the inhabitants of the fire, they will stay therein.
3:117 The likeness of that which they spend in the life of this world is as the likeness of wind in which is intense cold which strikes the harvest of a people who do injustice to themselves and thus destroys it. And Allah is not unjust to them but they are unjust to themselves.
3:118 O you who believe ! do not take into intimacy people other than your own, they will not spare anything to inflict loss on you, they love that which distresses you, hatred has (already) appeared through their mouths and that which they hide in their bosoms is greater. We have made clear to you the signs if you are those who understand.
3:119 Ah ! you are those who love them but they do not love you, and you are those who believe in the whole of the book *. And when they meet you, they say, "We believe," but when they are alone, they bite their finger tips because of (their) anger on you. Say, "Die in your anger." Allah is certainly the Knower of that which is in the bosoms ( hearts). * All Divine Books.
3:120 If good (even) touches you they feel bad and if evil befalls you they are happy about it, but if you are patient and guard yourselves, their plot will not harm you in anything. Allah is certainly the Encompassor of that which they do.
3:121 And (remember) when you went out in the morning from your family, to assign to the believers their positions for the battle (of Uhad) , and Allah was Hearing, Knowing,
3:122 when two parties from among you were on the point of showing cowardice though Allah was their Guardian. And on Allah then, let the believers (put their) trust.
3:123 And Allah had helped you at Badr when you were weak, therefore fear Allah so as to be grateful (to Him).
3:124 When you said to the believers, "Is it not enough for you that your Fosterer should support you with three thousand of the angels, sent down?"
3:125 Why not? If you are patient and on your guard and these (your enemies) come on you suddenly, your Fosterer will support you with five thousand of the angels, marked. will support you with five thousand of the angels, marked.
3:126 And Allah did not give this (assurance) except as a good news for you, so that your hearts should be at peace thereby, and there is no (other) help except that from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise,
3:127 that He may cut off a portion from among those who did not believe or disgrace them so that they should go back (as) failures.
3:128 There is nothing for you in this affair whether He turns to them (mercifully) or punishes them because they are unjust.
3:129 And whatever is in the skies and whatever is in the earth is Allah's. He protectively forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills, and Allah is Protectively Forgiving, Merciful.
3:130 O you who believe ! do not swallow usury, multiplied many times and fear Allah that you may be successful.
3:131 And guard (yourselves) against the fire which is prepared for the infidels.
3:132 And obey Allah and the messenger, that you may be shown mercy.
3:133 And hasten towards protective forgiveness of your Fosterer and the garden, the extensiveness of which is the skies and the earth, prepared for those who guard (against evil).
3:134 (Those are the persons) who spend in prosperity and in adversity, and they are the restrainers of anger and the pardoners of (mistakes of) mankind, and Allah loves the doers of good,
3:135 and those who, when they commit an indecency or do injustice to themselves, remember Allah and seek (His) protective forgiveness for their sins. And who protectively forgives the sins except Allah? And knowingly they do not persist in (doing) that which they did (sin). y forgives the sins except Allah? And knowingly they do not persist in (doing) that which they did (sin).
3:136 The reward of such persons is protective forgiveness from their Fosterer and gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will stay, and excellent is the reward for those who work.
3:137 Many ways of life have passed before you, so travel in the earth and see how the end of those who denied (the truth) was (brought about).
3:138 This is a clear statement for mankind and a guidance and an admonition for those who guard (against evil).
3:139 And do not be weak nor grieve, for you will dominate if you are believers.
3:140 If a wound has afflicted you, then a similar wound has afflicted the (other) people. And these days (ups and downs) We keep on changing among human beings by turn, so that Allah may know (mark out) those who believe and take witnesses from you, and Allah does not love the unjust,
3:141 and that Allah may purify (pick out) those who believe and wipe off the infidels.
3:142 Do you think that you will enter the garden (paradise) while Allah has not yet known (marked out) those who strive (in His way) from among you and known (marked out) those who are patient?
3:143 And you had desired death before you met it, so you have seen it while you were looking.
3:144 And Muhammed is no more than a messenger, messengers have passed before him, then if he dies or is killed, will you turn back on your heels? And whoever turns back on his heels, he will not harm Allah in the least and Allah will reward those who are grateful.
3:145 And a soul (living being) cannot die except by the order of Allah, the term (of life is) fixed (by His order). And whoever intends (to receive) the reward (in) the world, We will grant it (to him) therein, and whoever intends (to receive) the reward (in) the hereafter, We will grant it (to him) therein, and We will reward those who are grateful.
3:146 And how many of the prophets fought (in the way of Allah) with whom there were many devoted men, so they did not become weak (hearted) because of what befell them in the way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor were they humbled and Allah loves those who are patient.
3:147 And their saying was nothing except that they said, "Our Fosterer ! protectively forgive us our sins and our excesses in our affair and make our feet firm and help us against the people who are infidels."
3:148 So Allah gave them the reward (in) the world an (also) and excellent reward of the hereafter, and Allah loves the doers of good.
3:149 O you who believe ! if you obey those who do not believe, they will turn you back on your heels, then you will turn back as loser.
3:150 No, Allah is your Guardian and He is the Best of helpers.
3:151 We will cast terror into the hearts of those who do not believe because they associate partners with Allah for which He has not sent down any authority, and their settling place will be the fire and evil will be the home of those who are unjust.
3:152 And Allah fulfilled His promise to you when you destroyed them with His permission, until when you became weak hearted and disputed about the affair and disobeyed after He had shown you that which you loved (booty at battle of Uhad). Among you is one who intends (to receive the benefit in) the world and among you is one who intends (to receive the benefit in) the hereafter. Then He turned you away from them that He might test you and He has pardoned you and Allah is Gracious to the believers.
3:153 (Remember) when you were climbing up (the hill) and were paying no heed to anyone, and the messenger was calling you from behind you, then (at that time, it was Allah Who) rewarded you with distress upon distress. (This information is being given so) that you might not grieve at what you missed nor at what befell you, and (know, that) Allah is informed of (all) that you do.
3:154 Then after the distress, He sent down on you peaceful slumber (which) covered a party of you, and (another) party, they were anxious themselves, guessing about Allah (something) other than what was true, a guess of ignorance, saying, "Is there anything for us in the affair?" Say, "The affair, total of it, is certainly Allah's." They were hiding within themselves that which they would not manifest to you, saying, "Had we any power in the affair, we would not have been slain here." Say, "Even if you had been in your houses, those, for whom slaughter was written, would have certainly gone forth to the places of their death; but (all this happened) because Allah wanted to test that which was in your bosoms so that He might purify that which was in your hearts. And Allah is the Knower of that which is in the bosoms."
3:155 Those of you who turned back on the day the two armies met, it was certainly the devil alone who caused them to slip because of (the evil of) some (deeds) they had earned, but Allah has pardoned them, Allah is certainly Protectively Forgiving, Clement (Kind).
3:156 O you who believe ! do not be like those who do not believe and say of their brothers when they travel in the earth or are engaged in fighting, "Had they been with us they would not have died or been killed, "that Allah may make that a regret in their hearts, and Allah gives life and causes death and Allah is the Seer of what you do.
3:157 And whether you are slain in the way of Allah or you die, protective forgiveness from Allah and (His) mercy are better than that which they amass.
3:158 And whether you die or you are slain, (in any case) you will be gathered towards Allah.
3:159 So it is due to the mercy of Allah that you are soft (hearted) with them and had you been stern, hard-hearted, they would have dispersed from around you, so pardon them and ask for protective forgiveness for them and consult them in the affair, but when you are determined then put your trust in Allah, Allah certainly loves those who put their trust (in Him).
3:160 If Allah helps you, no one can overcome you. And if He forsakes you, then who is there after Him who can help you? Therefore, let the believers put their trust in Allah.
3:161 And it is not (in the nature) of any prophet to cheat, and he who cheats, will (have to) bring on the day of resurrection that which he cheated, then everyone will be repaid fully for that which he earned and injustice will not be done to them.
3:162 Then, is he, who follows Allah's pleasure, like him who deserves displeasure of Allah and his settling place is hell? And it is an evil destination.
3:163 There are grades for them with Allah and Allah is the Seer of that which they do.
3:164 Allah did bestow a favour on the believers when He raised a messenger among them from among themselves, reading to them His statements (Quran) and purifying them and teaching them the book (laws) and the wisdom (their interpretation), and although before that they were in clear error.
3:165 What ! when a disaster befell you, although you had afflicted (the infidels with a disaster) twice (of that which befell you), you say, "Wherefrom is this?" Say, "It is from yourselves." Allah certainly has power over everything.
3:166 And what befell you on the day the two armies met, was with Allah's permission, that He might know (mark out) the believers,
3:167 and that He might know (mark out) the hypocrites. And (when) it was said to them, "Come fight in the way of Allah or drive out (the enemy)." They said, "Had we known fighting we would have followed you." On that day they were nearer to infidelity than to belief, saying with their mouths that which was not in their hearts, and Allah knows best that which they hide. mouths that which was not in their hearts, and Allah knows best that which they hide.
3:168 Those who said about their brothers (who were slain in the cause of Allah), while they themselves sat at home, "Had they obeyed us they would not have been killed." Say (to them), "Then avert death from yourselves, if what you say is true."
3:169 And do not consider, those who are slain in the way of Allah, (as) dead. No, they are alive, with their Fosterer, being provided (with sustenance),
3:170 they are rejoicing in that which Allah has given them out of His grace and are glad regarding those who have not yet joined them from among those (believers) left behind (in the world), that there will neither be any fear on them nor will they grieve.
3:171 They are glad because of the favour of Allah with (His) grace and that Allah does not waste the reward of the believers.
3:172 Those who responded to (the call of) Allah and the messenger, even after being wounded, for those who did good from among them and guarded (against evil) there is a great reward.
3:173 Those to whom, (when) the people said, "Men have gathered against you, therefore fear them," but (this threat) certainly increased their belief and they said, "Allah is sufficient for us and (He is) the Most Excellent Trustee."
3:174 So they returned with favour from Allah and (His) grace, no evil touched them and they followed the pleasure of Allah and Allah is the Possessor of great grace.
3:175 It is only the devil who makes you afraid of his friends, so do not fear them but fear Me if you are believers.
3:176 And do not let those grieve you, who hastily fall into infidelity, they can never harm Allah in the least. Allah does not intend to give them any portion in the hereafter and for them there is a great punishment. great punishment.
3:177 Those who purchase infidelity at the cost of belief, can never harm Allah in the least, and for them there is a painful punishment.
3:178 And do not let those who do not believe, think that Our granting them time is good for them, We grant them time with the sole purpose that they should increase in sin and for them there is a disgraceful punishment.
3:179 Allah will not leave the believers in the condition in which you are, (this is only) till He separates the evil from the good, and Allah will not disclose to you the unseen but Allah chooses from among His messengers whom He wills; so believe in Allah and His messengers and if you believe and guard (against evil), then for you there is a great reward.
3:180 And do not let those who hoard up (miserly) that which Allah has given them of His grace think that it is better for them. No, it is bad for them. That which they hoard (miserly) will be their collar on the day of resurrection, and Allah's is the heritage of the skies and the earth and Allah is informed of what you do
3:181 Allah has heard the saying of those who said, "Allah is poor and we are rich." We will record what they said, and their killing the prophets without having the right to do so, and We will say, "Taste the punishment of burning.
3:182 That is because of what your hands have sent before, and because Allah is not unjust to His servants."
3:183 (To) those who said, "Allah has made An agreement with us that we should certainly not believe in any messenger until he brings to us an offering which is consumed by the fire," say, "Messengers had come to you before me with clear proofs and with that which you ask for, then why did you kill them, if you were truthful?"
3:184 So if they deny you, thus messengers before you were (also) denied, (though) they had come with clear proofs and the scriptures (Zuboor) and the book giving light.
3:185 Every soul tastes death, and you will be paid back in full, your reward, only on the day of resurrection. So whoever is removed far away from the fire and is made to enter the garden, then he has achieved (the object), and the life of the world is nothing but a deceptive provision.
3:186 You will definitely be tested through your wealth and yourselves (personal efforts) and you will definitely hear much harmful (talk) from those who were given the book before you and from those who associate partners (with Allah), but if you are patient and guard (against evil) then that will certainly be a determining factor of affairs.
3:187 And when Allah took a pledge from those who were given the book, "You shall make the (book) clear to mankind and you shall not hide it," they threw it behind their backs and purchased a small gain through it, so evil is that which they purchased.
3:188 Do not think that those who are happy for that which they have done and love to be praised for what they did not do, so do not think that they are in safety from the punishment when there is a painful punishment (waiting) for them.
3:189 And the kingdom of the skies and the earth is Allah's and Allah has power over everything.
3:190 In the creation of the skies (heavenly bodies) and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day, certainly there are signs for men of understanding,
3:191 who remember Allah, standing and sitting and lying on their sides and reflect on the creation of the skies and the earth, " O our Fosterer ! You have not created this in vain. You are Glorified ( above all ) so save us from the punishment of the fire.
3:192 Our Fosterer ! whomever You make to enter the fire, You have certainly disgraced him, and for those who are unjust there will be no helpers.
3:193 Our Fosterer ! we heard the call of one calling to belief, saying: Believe in your Fosterer, so we believed. Our Fosterer ! so protectively forgive us our sins and remove from us (the effect of) our evil deeds and pay us back in full (or make us die) along with the righteous.
3:194 Our Fosterer ! and grant us that which You promised us through Your messengers and do not disgrace us on the day of resurrection, You certainly do not go against Your promise."
3:195 So their Fosterer responded to them, "I do not waste the work of a (single) worker among you, whether male or female, some of you are from others. So those who migrated and were driven out from their houses and were harmed in My way and who fought and were slain, I will definitely remove from them (the effect of) their evil deeds and I will definitely make them enter the gardens beneath which rivers flow," a reward from that which is with Allah, and the best reward is with Allah.
3:196 Do not let the movement in the cities, of those who do not believe, deceive you.
3:197 A brief enjoyment, then their home is hell and it is an evil place of habitation.
3:198 But those who fear their Fosterer, for them are gardens beneath which rivers flow, they will stay therein, a gift from that which is with Allah, and that which is with Allah is the best for the righteous.
3:199 And among the owners of the book there are those who certainly believe in Allah and that which is sent down to you and that which was sent down to them, humbling themselves before Allah, they do not purchase through the signs of Allah, a small price. Those are the persons for whom there is their reward with their Fosterer, Allah is certainly Quick in (settling) the account.
3:200 O you who believe ! be patient and exhibit patience and strength (by being tied to each other) and fear Allah that you may be successful.
