as rendered by Bakhtiari Nejad

Ali Bakhtiari Nejad rendition of Surah Women(an-Nisa`)
---
4:1 You people, be cautious of your Master who created you from a single being, and created its spouse from it, and spread many men and women from them. And be cautious of God, the One you ask by Him, and (beware of your duties to) the blood relatives (and close relatives). God is watching over you.
4:2 Give the orphans their properties and do not substitute the bad for the good, and do not eat up their properties with your properties, as it is a great sin.
4:3 If you are afraid that you may not be fair with the orphans, then marry from the women who are pleasing to you, two, three, or four. But if you are afraid of injustice, then (marry) only one, or what you own. That is more appropriate so you don't deviate from the right course.
4:4 And give women their compensations (marriage portions) dutifully. But if they, on their own accord, give you back any part of it, then consume it as something joyful and wholesome.
4:5 And do not give your properties which God made a source of support for you to the immature ones, but provide for them and clothe them with that, and speak to them nicely.
4:6 Check the orphans until they reach the age of marriage, so if you noticed maturity in them then give their properties back to them, and do not consume it excessively and in a hurry because they are growing up. Anyone who is rich should then he should forgive (his wages), and anyone who is poor then he should reasonably consume (from it). And when you return their properties to them, take witness upon them. And God is enough for accounting.
4:7 For men is a share of what their parents and the relatives leave behind, and for women is a share of what their parents and the relatives leave behind, no matter a little of it or a lot, a preset share.
4:8 And when during the distribution relatives (and close ones) and orphans and needy are present, provide them from it, and speak to them nicely.
4:9 Those should fear, whom if they leave helpless offspring behind them, they would be afraid about them, so they should be cautious of God and they should say right (and appropriate) word.
4:10 Indeed those who consume the orphans' properties wrongfully only consume fire into their stomachs, and they are going to enter (and burn in) a burning fire.
4:11 God instructs you regarding your children that: for a male is the same portion as two females and if they are all women and more than two, they get two third of what is left, and if she is only one, then she gets half. And for the parents, for each one of them is one sixth of what is left if he has a child, and if he does not have a child and his inheritors are (only) his parents then one third is for the mother (and the rest is for the father), and if there are siblings for him then one sixth is for the mother, after fulfilling any will he instructed it or paying off any debt. You do not know whether your parents or your children have more benefits for you. This is a mandate from God. God is knowledgeable and wise.
4:12 And half of what your wives leave is for you if they don't have a child, and if they have a child then one quarter of what they leave is for you, after fulfilling the will that they instructed to it or paying off any debt. And one quarter of what you leave is for them if you don't have a child, and if you have a child then one eighth of what you leave is for them, after fulfilling the will that you instructed to it or paying off any debt. And if a man or a woman who is to be inherited from has no direct heir and he has a brother or a sister, for each one of them is one sixth, and if more than two, then they all share in a third, after fulfilling the will that he instructed to it and paying off any debt without causing any loss. This is an instruction from God, and God is Knowledgeable and patient.
4:13 These are limits set by God, and whoever obeys God and His messenger, He admits him into gardens which rivers flow through them remaining in there forever, and this is the great victory.
4:14 And whoever disobeys God and His messenger and violates His limits, He admits him into a fire remaining in there forever, and a humiliating punishment is for him.
4:15 And those among your women who commit the indecency, then call four witnesses against them from among you, and if they testified, then keep them in the houses until the death takes them or God makes a way for them.
4:16 And if two men among you commit it (the indecency), then harass them both and if they repent and straighten out then stay away from them. God is acceptor of repentance and merciful.
4:17 (Accepting) the repentance is only on God for those who do something bad out of ignorance and then repent soon after, then God turns to them (and forgives them), and God is knowledgeable and wise.
4:18 And the repentance is not for those who do the bad deeds until the death comes to one of them, then he says indeed I repent now, and it is not for those who die while they are disbelievers, We prepared a painful punishment for them.
4:19 You who believe, it is not lawful for you to inherit women (or from women) unwillingly, and you do not make it difficult for them so that you take back part of what you gave them unless they commit an obvious indecency. And treat them nicely. And if you dislike them, then perhaps you dislike something while God puts a lot of good in it.
4:20 If you decide to replace a wife in lieu of a wife, and you gave one of them lots of valuables, then do not take anything from her. Do you take it with a false accusation and an obvious sin?
4:21 And how do you take it while you have gone into each other (and had sex) and they took a strong commitment (marriage contract) from you?
4:22 Do not marry what your fathers married among the women (their ex-wives) except what has passed, indeed it is indecent and disgusting and a bad way.
4:23 Forbidden to you (for marriage) are your mothers, and daughters, and sisters, and sisters of your fathers, and sisters of your mothers, and daughters of your brothers, and daughters of your sisters, and your stepmothers who nursed you, and your stepsisters by nursing, and mothers of your wives, and your stepdaughters in your guardianship from you wives whom you had sex with them but if you did not have sex with them then there is no blame on you, and the wives of your sons from your backs (your own sons not your stepsons), and two sisters together (at the same time), except what has passed. God is forgiving and merciful.
4:24 And (forbidden to you are) all married women except what your right hands own, God's prescription for you, and what is beyond that is made lawful for you, that you look for them with your wealth for marriage and not fornication/adultery. So for what you enjoyed from them (consummation of marriage), give them their compensations (marriage portions) as a mandate. And there is no blame on you for what you mutually agree about it after the mandate. Indeed God is knowledgeable and wise.
4:25 And anyone among you who cannot afford to marry the free chaste believing woman, then (marry) from your believing maids among what your right hands own. God best knows your belief, you are from one another. So marry them with permission of their owners (and their families) and give them their compensations (marriage portions) nicely for marriage and not fornication/adultery and not taking them as lovers. And when they are married, if they commit an indecency, then their punishment is half of what is for a free married woman. This is for anyone of you who fears committing fornication, but if you are patient it is better for you. God is forgiving and merciful.
4:26 God wants to clarify for you and to guide you to ways of those before you, and to turn to you (and forgive you). God is knowledgeable and wise.
4:27 God wants to turn to you, but those who follow the lusts want you to deviate, a great deviation.
4:28 God wants to reduce your (burdens), as the human being is created weak.
4:29 You who believe, do not falsely eat up one another's properties among yourselves, but let there be trade among you with your mutual satisfaction. And do not kill yourselves (each other). God is merciful to you.
4:30 Anyone who does this due to aggression and wrongdoing, We are going to enter (and burn) him in a fire, and that is easy for God.
4:31 If you avoid the big ones that you are prohibited from it, We remove your sins from you and admit you into a noble place.
4:32 And do not wish for what God graced some of you over others with it. Men have a share of what they did, and women have a share of what they did. And ask God from His grace. God knows everything.
4:33 For everyone We appointed inheritors for what the parents and the relatives left behind, and those you contracted by your oath, so give them their share. God is indeed witness over everything.
4:34 Men are caretakers of women because of what God graced some over the others and for what they spend from their wealth. So good women are loyal, looking after what God takes care of in the absence (of their husband). And those whom you are afraid of their disloyalty (in their marital duties), then advise them, and keep away from them in beds, and (if that or nothing else worked) then spank them (fairly and not out of anger), but if they agreed with you, then do not look for a way against them. God is superior and great.
4:35 And if you are afraid of separation between them, then select an arbitrator from his family and an arbitrator from her family. If they want to make things right, God reconciles between them. God is knowledgeable and well aware.
4:36 And serve God and do not associate anything with Him (as partner), and be good to your parents and to the relatives (and close ones) and the orphans and the needy and the close neighbors and the distant neighbors and the companions by the side and the traveler (in need) and those whom your right hands own. Indeed God does not like selfish show offs.
4:37 Those who are stingy and instruct people to stinginess and hide what God gave them from His grace, (know that) We prepared a humiliating punishment for the disbelievers,
4:38 and those who spend their wealth to be seen by the people and do not believe in God and the last day, (Satan is their companion) and anyone who has Satan as a companion, then he has a bad companion.
4:39 What would be against them if they believed in God and the last day and spent (in God's way) from what God provided them? God is knowledgeable about them.
4:40 God does not wrong even the least bit, and if there is any good, He multiplies it and gives a great reward from Himself.
4:41 And how would it be when We bring a witness from every group and We bring you as a witness against these?
4:42 On that day, those who disbelieved and rebelled against the messenger wish that the earth was leveled with them, and they do not hide any saying (or anything) from God.
4:43 You who believe, do not get close to the mandatory prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you say, and not after orgasm until you wash except when you are traveling on the road, and if you are sick or on a journey or one of you comes from toilet or you had (sexual) contact with a woman and could not find water, then perform dry ablution using clean soil (or stone or sand) rubbing it to your faces and hands. God is pardoning and forgiving.
4:44 Did you not see those who were given some benefit of the book buying the misguidance and wishing that you lose the (right) way?
4:45 God knows your enemies better, and God is enough as a protector and God is enough as a helper.
4:46 Some of those who are Jewish change (the meaning/pronunciation of) the word from its places and they say: we heard and we rebelled, and hear without listening, and Ra’ina (keep an eye on us, but with a slight twist would mean our fool or our evil) twisting their tongue as a slander to the religion. And if they had said we heard and we obeyed and listen and Unzurna (watch over us), it would have been better and more appropriate for them. But God cursed them for their disbelief, and they do not believe except a few/little.
4:47 You who are given the book, believe in what We sent down confirming what is with you before We wipe out faces and turn them backward, or curse them as We cursed the violators of the Sabbath. God’s command shall be done.
4:48 God does not forgive associating partner with Him, and He forgives other than that for anyone He wants. And whoever associates partner with God then he has made up (and committed) a great sin.
4:49 Did you not see those who (think they) absolved themselves? But it is God who absolves anyone He want, and they are not wronged in the least.
4:50 See how they make up lies (and attribute them) to God, and that in itself is sufficient as an obvious sin.
4:51 Did you not see those who were given some benefit of the book believing in the false gods (and superstition) and the rebellious and saying about those who disbelieved: these are more guided to the (right) way than the believers.
4:52 They are those whom God cursed them, and anyone cursed by God then you will never find a helper for him.
4:53 Or do they have any share of the rule? In that case they will not give a tiny bit to the people.
4:54 Or are they jealous of the people for what God gave them from His grace? We have given Abraham’s family the book and the wisdom, and we gave them a great kingdom.
4:55 Some of them believed in him and some of them turned away from him, and burning fire of hell is enough (for them).
4:56 Those who disbelieved in Our signs, We will enter (and burn) them in a fire, every time their skins is roasted, We replace their skins with another skin so that they taste the punishment. God is powerful and wise.
4:57 And those who believed and did good works, We are going to admit them into gardens which rivers flow through them, remaining in there forever and ever. They have pure spouses in there, and We admit them into an abundant shade.
4:58 Indeed God orders you to return the trust to their owners, and when you judge between the people, judge with justice. Indeed what God advises you to it is excellent. God hears all and sees all.
4:59 You who believe, obey God and obey the messenger and those of you who are in charge of affairs (the authorities), but if you dispute about anything (with authorities), then return it to God and the messenger if you believe in God and the last day. This is better and has a better outcome.
4:60 Did you not see those who claim that they believe in what was sent down to you and what was sent down before you, but they want to be judged by the rebellious while they were certainly instructed to reject it, and Satan wants to misguide them far from the (right) path.
4:61 And when they are told to come to what God sent down and to the messenger, you see the hypocrites totally turn away from you.
4:62 And how is it that when a tragedy strikes them for what their hands sent ahead, then they come to you swearing by God: we only wanted good and success (for you).
4:63 They are those whom God knows what is in their hearts, so stay away from them and advise them, and speak to them with eloquent words (reaching) into their souls.
4:64 We did not send any messenger except that he is obeyed by God’s permission. And if they had come to you when they wronged themselves and asked for God’s forgiveness and the messenger had asked for their forgiveness, they would have certainly found God as acceptor of repentance and merciful.
4:65 But no, by your Master that they do not believe until they make you judge in what happened between them (and in their disputes), then they do not find any difficulty in themselves about what you decide, and they submit completely.
4:66 And if We had prescribed to them to kill yourselves (or each other) or leave your homes, only a few of them would have done it. But if they did what they were advised to it, it would have been better and more strengthening for them.
4:67 Then We would certainly give them a great reward from Us,
4:68 and We would certainly guide them to a straight path.
4:69 And whoever obeys God and the messenger, then they are with those whom God favored upon them, among the prophets and the truthful ones and the witnesses (or the martyrs) and the righteous, and they are good friends.
4:70 That is the grace from God, and God is sufficient for knowing.
4:71 You who believe, use your precaution (and be careful) and go out in groups or go out all together.
4:72 And indeed among you in one who shall slow down, and if a disaster strikes you he says: God has favored upon me that I was not present with them.
4:73 And if God’s grace happens to you, he shall say as if there was no friendship between you and him: I wish I was with them so I would achieve a great victory.
4:74 So those who sell this world's life for the hereafter should fight in God's way, and whoever fights in God's way, whether he is killed or he is victorious, then We will give him a great reward.
4:75 And what is with you that you do not fight in God's way and the weak men and women and children, those who say: our Master, take us out of this town whose inhabitants are the wrongdoers, and appoint a protector for us from Your presence and appoint a helper for us from Your presence.
4:76 Those who believed fight in God's way and those who disbelieved fight in the way of the rebellious, so fight against supporters of Satan, as Satan’s plan is indeed weak.
4:77 Did you not see those who were told: withhold your hands (and do not fight) and perform the mandatory prayer and give to the mandatory charity, but when fighting was prescribed for them, a group of them feared men as they feared God or even feared more and said: our Master, why did you prescribe fighting for us, why did you not postpone it for a short while? Say: enjoyment of this world is small and the hereafter is best for anyone who controls himself, and you will not be wronged a bit.
4:78 The death catches up with you wherever you are, even if you are in strongly built towers. And if something good happens to them, they say: this is from God. And if something bad happens to them, they say: this is from you. Say: everything is from God. What is the matter with these people that they do not understand this saying?
4:79 Anything good that happens to you is from God, and anything bad that happens to you is from yourself. And We sent you as a messenger for the people, and God is sufficient as a witness.
4:80 Whoever obeys the messenger then he has indeed obeyed God, and whoever turns back, We did not send you as their guardian.
4:81 And they say: obedience. But when they leave you, a group of them contemplate by night in other than what you say, but God writes what they contemplate by night, so stay away from them and put your trust in God. God is enough as an advocate.
4:82 Do they not think about the Quran? And if it was from other than God, they would find a lot of contradictions in it.
4:83 And when any news of safety or fear comes to them, they publicize it, while if they had referred it to the messenger and those among them who are in charge, then those among them who can find it out (the truth) would certainly know it. And if it was not for God’s grace and mercy on you, you would have certainly followed Satan, except a few (of you).
4:84 So (Muhammad) fight in God's way, you are only responsible for yourself, and persuade the believers (to fight). Perhaps God holds back the harm of those who disbelieved. God is most strong and most punishing.
4:85 Anyone mediates a good mediation (in a good cause) has a share of it, and anyone who mediates a bad mediation (in a bad cause) has a portion of it. God has control over everything.
4:86 And when you are greeted with a greeting, then greet with better than that or return it. God takes everything into account.
4:87 God, there is no god except Him. He shall gather you in the resurrection day that there is no doubt about it. Whose saying is truer than God?
4:88 What is it with you that you divided into two groups regarding hypocrites while God set them back because of what they did? Do you want to guide someone whom God misguided (according to His laws) while whomever God misguides, you will never find a way for him.
4:89 They want you to disbelieve as they disbelieved so you are equal, so do not take any supporter from them until they migrate in God's way. If they turn back (to disbelief and fight you) then take them and kill them wherever you find them. And do not take any protector or helper from them.
4:90 Except those who join a group that there is an agreement between you and them, or those who come to you with their hearts holding them back from fighting you or fighting their people. If God wanted, He would give them power over you and they would fight you, so if they kept away from you and did not fight you and offered you peace, then God did not make any way for you against them (and you should make peace with them).
4:91 You find others who want to be safe from you and be safe from their people, but every time they are returned to the temptation, they fall into it. So if they do not keep away and do not offer peace and do not hold back their hands, then take them and kill them wherever you find them, and those are whom We gave you a clear reason against them.
4:92 It is not for a believer to kill a believer except by a mistake. And anyone who kills a believer by a mistake should set a believing slave free and pay full compensation to his family unless they forgive it. And if he was from a group who were your enemy and he was a believer, then setting a believing slave free. And if he was from a group that there is an agreement between you and them, then paying full compensation to his family and setting a believing slave free. And anyone who cannot find (a slave or afford one) then fasting for two consecutive months as repentance from God. God is knowledgeable and wise.
4:93 And whoever kills a believer intentionally then his punishment is hell, remaining in there forever, and God’s anger and curse is upon him and He prepared a great punishment for him.
4:94 You who believe, when you travel in God's way, then make it clear (and investigate thoroughly), and do not say to someone who offers you peace (or admits to submission) you are not a believer, looking for the wealth of this life. Whereas there are many spoils with God. That is how you were before, so God favored upon you, so make it clear. God is well aware of what you do.
4:95 Those among the believers who sit around except those who are disabled, and those who try hard with their wealth and their lives in God's way are not equal. God preferred those who try hard with their wealth and their lives in rank over those who sit around. And God promised good things to each one, while God preferred those who try hard over the ones who sit around with a great reward,
4:96 ranks and forgiveness and mercy from Him. God is forgiving and merciful.
4:97 When angels take the life of those who were wrong to themselves, they say: what were you up to? They say: we were weak on the earth. They say: was not God’s earth vast enough so that you migrate in it? Those are whom their residence is hell, and it is a bad destination.
4:98 Except the weak among men and women and children who cannot evade and they are not directed to a way.
4:99 And perhaps God excuses them. God is pardoning and forgiving.
4:100 And whoever migrates in God's way finds many refuge and plenty on the earth. And whoever leaves his house migrating for God and His messenger, then the death reaches him (and he dies), then his reward has fallen upon God. And God is forgiving and merciful.
4:101 When you travel throughout the earth there is no blame on you if you shorten your mandatory prayer if you are afraid that those who disbelieved may harm you. Indeed the disbelievers are your obvious enemy.
4:102 And when you (Muhammad) were among them and you established the mandatory prayer for them, then a group of them should stand with you and should take their arms, then when they prostrated, then they should go behind you and other group that has not prayed should come to pray with you while taking precaution and (carrying) their arms. Those who disbelieved wish that you neglect from your arms and your things so that they attack you, a single (and sudden) attack. And there is no blame on you if you put down your arms if you are annoyed by rain or you are sick, but take precaution. Indeed God prepared a humiliating punishment for the disbelievers.
4:103 When you finished your mandatory prayer then remember God standing and sitting and (lying) on your sides. And when you are safe then perform the mandatory prayer. The mandatory prayer is indeed prescribed for the believers at specified times.
4:104 Do not slack off in the pursuit of the enemy. If you are suffering, they are also suffering as you are suffering, while you hope from God what they do not hope. God is knowledgeable and wise
4:105 We sent down the book to you with the truth, so you judge between people by what God showed you, and do not be an opponent for (the sake of) traitors.
4:106 And ask God’s forgiveness. God is indeed forgiving and merciful.
4:107 And do not argue about those who betray themselves. God does not like the sinning traitor.
4:108 They want to hide (their treachery) from the people and they do not hide it from God while He is with them when they contemplate at night saying things that does not please Him. God is fully aware of what they do.
4:109 Here you are, you are those who argue for them in this world’s life, so who argues for them with God on the resurrection day, or who will be an advocate for them?
4:110 Anyone who does a bad deed or wrongs himself, then asks God’s forgiveness, finds God forgiving and merciful.
4:111 Whoever commits a sin, he only does it against himself. God is knowledgeable and wise.
4:112 Anyone who commits a mistake or a sin, then accuses an innocent (person) of it, then he has carried (the guilt of) a false accusation and a clear sin.
4:113 And if it was not for God’s grace and mercy upon you (Muhammad), a group of them intended to misguide you, whereas they only misguide themselves, and do not harm you at all. And God sent down the book and wisdom to you and taught you what you did not know. And God’s grace upon you is great.
4:114 There is no good in most of their whisperings, except anyone who instructs to charity or doing what is right or improving among people. And whoever does that looking for God’s pleasure, then We will give him a great reward.
4:115 Anyone who opposes the messenger after the guidance became clear to him and follows other than the believers’ way, then We turn him to what he turned to and We make him enter (and burn in) hell, and it is a bad destination.
4:116 God does not forgive associating partner with Him, and forgives other than that for anyone He wants. Anyone who associates partner with God then he has lost (the way), a far away losing.
4:117 They only call upon female (gods) instead of Him, and they only call upon the rebellious Satan.
4:118 God cursed him (Satan), and he said: I shall take a fixed portion of your servants,
4:119 and I shall misguide them and I shall make them desire (excessively) and I shall instruct them to cut off the ears of livestock, and I shall instruct them to change God’s creation. And anyone who takes Satan as protector instead of God has lost, an obvious losing.
4:120 He (Satan) promises and makes them desire (excessively), and Satan promises nothing except deception.
4:121 Their housing is hell, and they will not find any way to escape from it.
4:122 Those who believed and did good works, We are going to admit them into gardens which rivers flow through them, remaining in there forever and ever. God’s promise is true, and whose word is truer than God?
4:123 It is not according to your wish or people of the book’s wish, anyone who does bad deed will be penalized for it and will not find any protector or helper for him other than God.
4:124 And anyone who does of the good deeds, whether male or female, and is a believer, then they enter the garden, and they will not be wronged a bit.
4:125 And whose way of life is better than someone who submitted his manner (of life) to God and is a good doer and follows the faith of monotheist Abraham? And God took Abraham as a friend.
4:126 Everything in the skies and on the earth belongs to God, and God surrounds (dominates) everything.
4:127 They ask your opinion about women, say: God gives His opinion to you regarding them and (that is in) what is read to you from the book regarding the female orphans whom you do not give them what is prescribed for them and you like to marry them, and the week among children, that you should carry out justice for the orphans. And whatever good you do, God knows about it.
4:128 And if a woman is afraid of her husband’s disloyalty (in performing his marital duties) or desertion, there is no blame on them if they make things right between them by settlement (and compromise), and settlement is better, even though the souls are filled with greed and stinginess. And if you do good and control yourselves, God is well aware of what you do.
4:129 You can never be fair between the women even if you are eager, therefore do not turn all the likeness (to one) so as to leave the other hanging. And if you make peace and control yourselves, God is forgiving and merciful.
4:130 And if they separate, God enriches them both from His plenty. God is bountiful and wise.
4:131 Everything in the skies and on the earth belongs to God. Indeed, We instructed those who were given the book before you and you to be cautious of God. And if you disbelieve, still everything in the skies and on the earth belongs to God. God is without any needs and praiseworthy.
4:132 Everything in the skies and on the earth belongs to God, and God is enough as an advocate.
4:133 You people, He will remove you and brings others if He wants. God is capable of that.
4:134 Anyone who wants the reward of this world, then the reward of this world and the hereafter is with God. God hears and sees everything.
4:135 You who believe, be maintainers of justice and witnesses for God even if it is against yourselves or the parents or the relatives (and close ones) whether he is rich or poor. God has priority over them, so do not follow the desire to deviate from justice. And if you are equivocal or avoid (the testimony), God is well aware of what you do.
4:136 You who believe, believe in God and His messenger and the book that He sent down to His messenger and the book that He sent down in the past. And whoever disbelieves in God and His angels and His books and His messengers and the last day has lost (the way), a far away losing.
4:137 Those who believed then disbelieved then believed and then disbelieved then increased their disbelief, God is not to forgive them or to guide them to a (right) way.
4:138 Give news to the hypocrites that there is a painful punishment for them,
4:139 those who take the disbelievers as protectors instead of the believers. Are they looking for respect (and honor) through them? Indeed all the respect belongs to God.
4:140 And He has sent down to you in the book that when you hear God’s signs are denied or ridiculed, then do not sit with them until they enter into a conversation other than it. You are like them if you do not. God is collector of all the hypocrites and the disbelievers in hell.
4:141 Those (hypocrites) who wait for you, and if there is a victory for you from God, they say: were we not with you? And if there is a share (of victory) for the disbelievers, they say: did we not have power over you and yet we protected you from the believers. God judges between you on the resurrection day. And God will never make a way for the disbelievers over the believers.
4:142 Indeed the hypocrites (think that they) trick God, while He tricks them, and when they perform the mandatory prayer they perform it lazily to be seen by the people and they seldom remember God.
4:143 Indecisive in between that, not being of these and not of those. And whoever is misguided by God (according to His laws), you will never find a way for him.
4:144 You who believe, do not take the disbelievers as protectors instead of the believers. Do you want to give God a clear reason against you?
4:145 Indeed the hypocrites will be in the lowest level of the fire, and you will not find any helper for them,
4:146 except those who repented and straightened out and held on tight to God, and were sincere to God in their way of life, then they are with the believers, and God gives the believers a great reward.
4:147 What would God do with punishing you if you are thankful and you believe? God is appreciative and knowledgeable.
4:148 God does not like nasty talks in the public except by one who is wronged, and God hears all and knows all.
4:149 If you do good openly or hide it, or you excuse a bad deed, then God is pardoner and capable.
4:150 Those who disbelieve in God and His messengers and they want to separate between God and His messengers and they say: we believe in some and disbelieve in others, and they want to take a path between that,
4:151 they are truly the disbelievers, and We prepared a humiliating punishment for the disbelievers.
4:152 And those who believed in God and His messengers and do not make distinction between any of them, We will give them their reward. God is forgiving and merciful.
4:153 The people of the book ask you to send down to them a book from the sky. Indeed they asked for greater than this from Moses and they said: show us God openly. So the lightning took them for their wrongdoing. Then they took the calf (for worship) after the clear proofs came to them, but We excused them for that, and We gave Moses a clear mandate.
4:154 And We lifted the mountain above them because of their commitment and We told them: enter the gate humbly. And We told them: do not violate the Sabbath. And we took a firm commitment from them.
4:155 So for their breaking their commitment and their disbelief in God’s signs and their killing of the prophets wrongfully and their saying: our hearts are covered, but rather God set a seal upon them because of their disbelief, so they do not believe except a few/little.
4:156 And for their disbelief and their saying a great false accusation against Mary,
4:157 and their saying: we killed Jesus Christ the son of Mary, God’s messenger, while they did not kill him and did not crucify him but it was so appeared to them, and indeed those who disagree about it are in doubt about it, having no knowledge of it except following the speculation, and certainly they did not kill him,
4:158 but rather God lifted him up to Him. God is powerful and wise.
4:159 And one is not among people of the book unless before his death he believes in it, and on the resurrection day he (Jesus) is a witness against them.
4:160 So because of wrongdoings of those who are Jewish, We forbade them some of the good things that were lawful for them, and for their holding back many (people) from God's way,
4:161 and their taking the usury while it has been forbidden to them, and their eating up people’s wealth (and money) falsely, and We prepared a painful punishment for the disbelievers among them.
4:162 But the scholars of knowledge among them, and the believers believing in what was sent down to you and what was sent down before you, and the performers of mandatory prayer, and the givers of the mandatory charity, and the believers in God and the last day, We are going to give them a great reward.
4:163 Indeed We revealed to you as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him and We revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes (of Israel) and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon, and We gave David the Psalms (Zabur),
4:164 and messengers whom We have told you their stories before, and messengers whom We did not tell you their stories. And God spoke to Moses in a conversation.
4:165 Messengers are givers of good news and warners, so there would be no reason for the people against God after the messengers. And God is powerful and wise.
4:166 But God testifies to what He sent down to you, that He sent it down with His knowledge, and the angels testify too, but God is enough as a witness.
4:167 Those who disbelieved and obstructed God's way have indeed lost (the way), a far away losing.
4:168 Indeed those who disbelieved and did wrong, God is not to forgive them and He certainly does not guide them to a (right) way,
4:169 except way of hell, remaining in there forever and ever, and that is easy for God.
4:170 People, the messenger has brought you the truth from your Master, so believe, it is better for you, and if you disbelieve, (know that) whatever is in the skies and on the earth belongs to God, and God is knowledgeable and wise.
4:171 People of the book, do not exaggerate in your religion (way of life) and do not say anything from God except the truth. Jesus Christ, son of Mary, was only a messenger of God, and His word which He conveyed to Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers, and do not say: three (or trinity). Stop, that is better for you. God is the only one god, He is flawless (and beyond) that there is a child for Him. Everything in the skies and in the earth belongs to him, and God is enough as an advocate.
4:172 Christ never refrained from being a servant of God, and neither did the closest angels. And whoever refrains from being His servant and is arrogant then He is going to gather them all to Himself (for accounting).
4:173 As for those who believed and did good works then He pays them their full reward and more from His grace. And as for those who refrained and were arrogant then He punishes them with a painful punishment and they will not find any protector or helper other than God for them.
4:174 People, a proof has come to you from your Master, and We sent down a clear light (Quran) to you.
4:175 As for those who believed in God and held on tight to Him then He is going to admit them into His mercy and grace, and He guides them to a straight path.
4:176 They ask your opinion, say: God gives His opinion to you regarding one with no direct heir. If a man dies having no child but has a sister, then half of what he leaves is hers, while he inherits (everything) from her if she has no child. And if there are two sisters then two third of what he leaves is theirs, and if there are multiple brothers and sisters, then for the male is as much as two females. God explains for you, that you don't make mistake. And God knows everything.
