24:1  A Surah, We sent it down and imposed it, and We sent down within it proof verses, perhaps you may be remembering.
24:2  The adulteress and the adulterer, so lash each one of them a hundred lashes, and do not take you with them a pity in Allah’s Religion, if you are believing with Allah and the Last Day. And let a category among the believers witness their torment.
24:3  The adulterer does not shag except an adulteress or an idolatress; and the adulteress does not shag except an adulterer or an idolater. And forbidden that upon the believers.
24:4  And those who accuse the fortified women, then they are not bringing with, four witnesses, so lash them with eighty lashes, and do not ever accept from them witnessing. And those are the debauchees.
24:5  Except for those who were repenting after that, and repairing; so, surely Allah is Forgiver, Merciful.
24:6  As for those who accuse their spouses, and have no witnesses except themselves, so a witnessing of one of them by Allah is equivalent to four witnessings that he is among the truthful ones.
24:7  And the fifth time, that Allah’s curse be upon him, if he is among the liars.
24:8  And will ward off her torment, that she witnesses four witnessings, by Allah, that he is among the liars.
24:9  And the fifth time, that Allah’s wrath be upon her, if he is among the truthful ones.
24:10  And if not for Allah’s bounty be upon you, and His mercy, and surely Allah is Repented, Wise.
24:11  Surely those who brought with the fake are a gang from you. Do not consider it bad for you nay, but it is goodness for you. For each person from them, what he earns from the sin. And the one who took over its bigness from them, for him is a great torment.
24:12  Why, not when you heard it, the believing men and the believing women assumed a goodness with themselves, and said, “This is an obvious fake”?
24:13  Why did they not bring four witnesses upon it? If they did not bring the witnesses, so those are with Allah, the liars.
24:14  And if not, Allah’s bounty be upon you, and His mercy, in the Dunya (this world) and the Hereafter, you would have been touched within what you were discoursing into it, a great torment.
24:15  When you throw it with your tongues and say with your mouths what you had no knowledge with, and you consider it easy; and it is with Allah, a great.
24:16  And why not, when you heard it, you should have said, “It is not for us to speak with this. Glorified are You (Our Lord), this is a great false accusation.”
24:17  Allah exhorts you, that you should not return to the like of it ever, if you are believers.
24:18  And Allah demonstrates the Verses for you. And Allah is Knowledgeable, Wise.
24:19  Surely those who love that the obscenity spreads within those who believed, for them is a painful torment, in the Dunya (this life) and the Hereafter. And Allah knows, and you are not knowing.
24:20  And were it not, Allah’s bounty be upon you, and His mercy, and surely Allah is A Clement, Merciful.
24:21  O you who believed! Do not follow Satan’s footsteps. And whoever follows Satan’s footsteps, so he commands by obscenity and denial. And if not, Allah’s bounty be upon you, and His mercy, no one among you would have been refined, ever. But Allah refines whomever He wills. And Allah is Hearer, Knowledgeable.
24:22  And the possessors of the bounty and the amplitude from you should not be deficient to give the possessors of consanguinity, and the needy persons, and the emigrants in Allah’s pathway. And let them pardon and let them condone. Do you not love that Allah forgives you? And Allah is Forgiver, Merciful.
24:23  Surely those who accuse the fortified women, the inattentive, the believing women are cursed in the Dunya (this life) and the Hereafter. And for them a great torment.
24:24  On a Day when their tongues, and their hands, and their feet will witness against them, with what they were working.
24:25  On that Day, Allah fulfills their religion (Debt), the right, and they will be knowing that Allah is Al-Haq (The Right) Al-Mubeen (The Manifest).
24:26  The malicious women (words) are for the malicious men, and the malicious men (words) are for the malicious women, and the good women (words) are for the good men, and the good men (words) are for the good women. Those are innocent from what they are saying. For them is forgiveness, and a noble livelihood.
24:27  O you who believed! Do not enter homes other than your homes, until you become accustomed and greet their inhabitants. That is goodness for you, perhaps you may be remembering.
24:28  So, if you find no one in them. So, do not enter them until you are given permission. And if it is said for you, “Go back,” then go back. That is more refined for you. And Allah is by what you are working, Knowledgeable.
24:29  There is no misdemeanor upon you for entering uninhabited houses, in which there are belongings of yours. And Allah knows what you are appearing and what you are muting.
24:30  Say for the believing men to reduce their sights, and to conserve their genitalia. That is more refined for them. Surely Allah is an expert with what they are making.
24:31  And say for the believing women to reduce their sights, and to conserve their genitalia, and not appear their adornment except that which exposes thereof and to draw their head-covers over their bosoms pocket and not appear their adornment except for their husbands, or their fathers, or their husbands' fathers, or their sons, or their husbands' sons, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no vigor desire, or children who are not yet appear on private aspects of the women. And let them not strike their feet to make known what they are hiding among their adornment. And repent to Allah, altogether, O believers, perhaps you might be gaining.
24:32  And request to shag the unmarried among you and the righteous among your male slaves and female slaves. If they are poor, Allah will enrich them from His bounty, and Allah is all-Encompassing, Knowledgeable.
24:33  And let those who do not find shagging be chaste, until Allah enriches them from His bounty. And those who seek writing the book from whom your right hands possess – so write a book for them, if you know there is within them a goodness, and give them from Allah’s money which He has given you. And do not force your girls on the prostitution, if they want fortification, you will be seeking the belongings of the Dunya life, and whoever is forcing them, so Allah after their compulsion is Forgiver, Merciful.
24:34  And We have already sent down to you proof verses, and examples from those who passed away before you, and an admonition for the pious.
24:35  Allah is the skies’ Light and the earth. An example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it was a pearly planet, fueled from a blessed tree, an olive tree, not eastern, nor western. Its oil would almost illuminate, even if no fire has touched it. Light upon Light. Allah guides for His light whoever He wills. And Allah thus cites the examples for the people. And Allah is with everything, Knowledgeable.
24:36  In houses which Allah has permitted that to be raised and mentioned His name within them. Glorifying him therein, in the morning and the evening.
24:37  Men neither the trade nor the sell amuse them about Allah’s mention, and establish the prayers, and give the Zakat. They are fearing a Day on it the cores and sights are overturning.
24:38  Allah will recompense them the best of what they worked and increase them among His bounty. And Allah provides livelihood to whoever He wills without reckoning.
24:39  And those who disbelieved, their works are like a mirage in a lowland. The thirsty considers it water. Until, when he comes to it, he does not find it a thing, and he finds Allah with him, so He fulfilled his reckoning. And Allah is swift in reckoning.
24:40  Or like darkness in a deep sea, over-covers it waves, from above it is waves, above which are clouds. Darkness some of them are above some others. If he exits his hand, he will hardly see it. And whoever Allah has not set up a light for him, so there is no light for him.
24:41  Have you not seen that Allah glorifies for Him whoever is in the skies and the earth, and the birds spread their wings? Each already knows its prayer, and its glorifying. And Allah is Knowledgeable with what they are doing.
24:42  And for Allah is the skies kingdom and the earth, and to Allah is the destiny.
24:43  Have you not seen that Allah propels clouds, then He concords between it, then He makes it cumulus, so you see the heavy rain exit from through it. And He sends down from the sky, among mountains [of clouds] within which is hail, so He inflicts with it whom He wills and averts it about whom He wills. The flash of its lightning almost takes away the sight.
24:44  Allah overturns the night and the day. Surely in that, is an admonition for the possessors of the sights.
24:45  And Allah created every moving creature from water. So, among them who walks on his belly, and among them who walks on two feet, and among them who walks on four. Allah creates whatever He wills. Surely Allah is over everything competent.
24:46  We already sent down declaring verses, and Allah guides whomever He wills to a straight path.
24:47  And they are saying, “We have believed with Allah and with the Messenger, and we obeyed,” then a team among them turns away after that. And those are not the believers.
24:48  And if they are called to Allah and His Messenger, to judge between them, lo! a team from them are averting.
24:49  And if the right is for them, they come to him yielding in obedience.
24:50  Is there a disease in their cores? Or are they doubted? Or do they fear that Allah and His Messenger misjudge upon them? Nay, but those are the oppressors.
24:51  It is only the believers’ saying, if they called to Allah and His Messenger to judge between them, that they say, “We hear and we obey.” And those are the gainers.
24:52  And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, and awes of Allah, and shows piety of Him, so those are the winners.
24:53  And they swore by Allah with their most effort oaths, that if you commanded them, they would exit. Say, “Do not swear. Obedience is well-known. Surely Allah is with what you are working, Expert.”
24:54  Say, “Obey Allah and obey the Messenger.” So, if they turned away, so upon him what he was loaded, and upon you what you were loaded. And if you obey him, you will be guided. And nothing is upon the Messenger except the obvious notification.
24:55  Allah has promised those among you who believed and worked the righteous deeds, that He will make them successors on earth, as He made those before them successors, and He will enable for them their religion, which He has satisfied for them, and He will substitute after their fearing, a security. They worship Me, not associating with Me of a thing. And whoever disbelieved after that, so those are the debauchees.
24:56  And establish the prayers, and give the Zakat, and obey the Messenger, perhaps you may be mercified.
24:57  Do not consider those who disbelieved cause incapacitation on the earth. Their shelter is The Fire; and wretched is the destiny.
24:58  O you who have believed, let those whom your right hands possess and those who have not reached puberty among you ask permission from you at three times: before the dawn prayer and when you put aside your clothing at noon and after the night prayer. Three times of privacy aspects to you. There is no misdemeanor upon you nor upon them after that. They are circumambulating on you, some of you on some others. Thus, Allah demonstrates the verses for you. And Allah is Knowledgeable, Wise.
24:59  And if the children among you reach puberty so they must ask permission, as those before them asked permission. Thus, Allah demonstrates the verses for you. And Allah is Knowledgeable, Wise.
24:60  And the retired among the women, who have no expectation for a request to shag, so there is no misdemeanor upon them in putting off their clothing, not displaying with adornments. And if they are being chaste, it is good for them. And Allah is Hearer, Knowledgeable.
24:61  There is no critical upon the blind, nor critical upon the lame, nor critical upon the diseased, nor upon yourselves for eating from your homes, or your fathers’ homes, or your mothers’ homes, or your brothers’ homes, or your sisters’ homes, or the homes of your paternal uncles, or the homes of your paternal aunts, or the homes of your maternal uncles, or the homes of your maternal aunts, or those whose keys you own, or the homes of your friends. No misdemeanor by eating together or separately. So, if you enter homes, So, greet yourselves with a greeting from Allah, blessed and good. Allah thus demonstrates the verses for you, perhaps you may be reasoning.
24:62  The believers were only those who believed in Allah and His Messenger, and if they are with him for a gathering matter, they do not go until they have asked him for permission. Surely those who ask your permission are those who believe in Allah and His Messenger. So, if they ask your permission for some business of theirs, so permit for whom you willed among them, and ask Allah’s forgiveness for them. Surely Allah is Forgiver, Merciful.
24:63  Do not make the call of Messenger between you as call some of you to some others. Already Allah knows those among you who slip away hiding themselves. So, be cautious, those who dissent from his command, lest that an infatuation inflicts them, or a painful torment inflicts them.
24:64  Verily, that for Allah whatever is in the skies and the earth. Already He knows what you are upon it. And on a Day, when they are returned to Him, He will inform them with what they worked. And Allah is with everything Knowledgeable.
