Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli rendition of Surah The Clans, The Coalition, The Combined Forces, The Allies(al-Ahzab)
33:1 O' Prophet! Be in awe of Allah and do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites; verily Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
33:2 And follow what is revealed to you from your Lord; verily Allah is aware of what you do.
33:3 And rely on Allah, and Allah is sufficient as a Protector.
33:4 Allah has not made for any man two hearts within him, nor has He made your wives whom you divorce by Zih?r your mothers: nor has He made your adopted sons your (real) sons these are the words of your mouths, and Allah tells you the Truth, and He guides unto the (right) way.
33:5 Call them after their (true) fathers, that is more equitable with Allah; but if you do not know their fathers, then they are your brethren in faith and your friends, and there is no blame on you concerning that in which you made a mistake, but what you do with intent of heart (you are responsible), and Allah is forgiving, Merciful.
33:6 The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are (as) their mothers, and blood-relations among each other have closer personal ties, in the Book of Allah, than the believers and the emigrants, except that you do some good to your friends, this (ordinance) is written in the Book.
33:7 And (remember) when We took a Covenant from the prophets and (also) from you, and from Noah and Abraham and Moses and Jesus, son of Mary, and We took from them a firm covenant,
33:8 That He might question the truthful of their truthfulness, and He has prepared for the unbelievers a painful chastisement.
33:9 O you who believe! Remember Allah's blessing upon you when hosts came against you, so We sent upon them a strong wind and hosts, that you saw not, and Allah sees what you do.
33:10 When they came against you from above you and from below you, and when the eyes swerved and the hearts reached to the throats, and you did imagine about Allah diverse thoughts,
33:11 There it was that the believers were tried, and they were shaken a tremendous shaking.
33:12 And when the hypocrites, and those in whose heart was a disease, were saying: 'Allah and His Messenger promised us naught but a delusion'.
33:13 And when a party of them said: 'O' you the people of Yathrib! There is no place for you to stand (here) so go back,' and a group of them asked permission of the Prophet, saying: 'Verily our houses are exposed'; and they were not exposed. They only intended to flee away (from battle field).
33:14 And if an entry had been made upon them from all sides of the city. Then they had been asked to apostatise, they would certainly have done it, and they would not have stayed in it but a little while.
33:15 And indeed they had made a covenant with Allah before that, that they would not turn their backs (to the enemy) and covenants with Allah shall be questioned of.
33:16 Say: 'Flight will never avail you if you flee from death or slaying, and in that case you will not be allowed to enjoy yourselves but a little'.
33:17 Say: 'Who is he that shall defend you from Allah, if He desires punishment for you, or desires mercy for you?' And they shall find for themselves, apart from Allah, neither protector nor helper.
33:18 Indeed Allah knows those who hinder others among you and those who say unto their brethren: 'Come to Us' and they come not to the fight but a little,
33:19 Being niggardly with respect to you; but when fear comes you will see them looking to you, their eyes rolling like one who swoons of death; but when the fear departs, they smite you with sharp tongues, being niggardly of the good things. Those have never believed and so Allah has made their deeds in vain, and that is easy for Allah.
33:20 They think that the clans have not withdrawn, and if the clans should come (again) they would wish they were in the deserts (wandering) among the Bedouins, and seeking news about you, and if they were in your midst, they would fight not but a little.
33:21 Indeed in the messenger of Allah you have an excellent pattern (of conduct) for him who hopes in Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much.
33:22 And when the believers saw the allies, they said: 'This is what Allah and His Messenger promised us, and Allah and His Messenger spoke the truth; and it increased not in them but faith and submission.
33:23 Among the believers are men who were true to their covenant with Allah; some of them have fulfilled their vow (by martyrdom), and some are still awaiting and they have not changed in the least,
33:24 That Allah may recompense the truthful ones for their truthfulness, and chastise the hypocrites if He please, or turn unto them (mercifully), verily Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
33:25 And Allah sent back those who disbelieved in their wrath, they gained no good; and Allah sufficed the believers of fighting, and Allah is Strong, Mighty.
33:26 And He drove down those of the people of the Book (the Jews) who supported them from their fortresses and He cast awe into their hearts, some you killed and some you made captive.
33:27 And He made you heirs of their lands, their dwellings, and their properties, and a land you had not trodden, and Allah is All-powerful over everything.
33:28 O Prophet! Say to your wives: 'If you desire the life of this world and its adornment, then come, I will provide you enjoyment and set you free in a handsome manner.
33:29 And if you desire Allah and His Messenger and the abode of Hereafter, then verily Allah has prepared for the doers of good among you a great reward.
33:30 O wives of the Prophet! Whoever of you commits an open indecency, the punishment for her will be doubled, and that is easy for Allah.
33:31 And whoever of you (women) is obedient to Allah and His Messenger, and does righteousness, to her shall We grant her reward twice; and We have prepared for her a generous sustenance.
33:32 O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any of the (other) women if you are in awe of Allah, then be not soft in speech lest he in whose heart is disease aspire (at you) and speak honourable words.
33:33 And stay in your abodes and do not display your finery, like the former times of Ignorance, and establish the prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Verily Allah intends but to keep off from you (every kind of) uncleanness, O' you the people of the House! And purify you (with) a thorough purification.
33:34 And remember what is recited in your abodes of the signs of Allah and the Wisdom; verily Allah is All-Subtle, Aware.
33:35 Verily the Muslim men and the Muslim women, and the believing men and the believing women, and the obedient men and the obedient women, and the truthful men and the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women, and the humble men and the humble women, and the alms-giving men and the alms-giving women, and the fasting men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their modesty and the women who guard (their modesty), and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember Allah (much), for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward.
33:36 And it is not for any believer, man or woman, to have the choice in their affair when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter; and whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger indeed he has strayed off a manifest straying.
33:37 And (remember) when you said to him on whom Allah had conferred favour (of faith) and you (too) had conferred favour (of freedom): 'Keep your wife (in wedlock) and be in awe of Allah', and you concealed within your self what Allah would bring to light, and you feared the people, and Allah had a greater right that you should fear Him. But when Zayd had accomplished his concern with her (i.e., divorced her), we joined her in marriage to you, so that there should not be a difficulty for the believers in respect of the wives of their adopted sons when they have accomplished their concerns with them (i.e., have divorced them), and the command of Allah shall be performed.
33:38 There is no difficulty to the Prophet (in doing) that which Allah has ordained for him, and such has been the way of Allah with those who have passed before, and the command of Allah is a decree determined.
33:39 Those who convey the messages of Allah and fear Him, and do not fear any one but Allah; and Allah is sufficient to take account.
33:40 Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets, and Allah is Cognizant of all things.
33:41 O You who have believed! Remember Allah with much remembrance,
33:42 And glorify Him morning and evening.
33:43 He it is Who sends blessings on you, and (likewise do) His angels, to bring you forth from the shadows (of infidelity) into the light (of faith); and He is Merciful to the believers.
33:44 Their greeting on the Day when they meet Him will be 'Peace', and He has prepared for them an honourable reward.
33:45 O Prophet! Verily We have sent you as a witness, and as a bearer of glad tiding and as a warner,
33:46 And as one inviting to Allah by His leave, and as a light-giving lamp.
33:47 And give the believers the glad tiding that they shall have from Allah a great grace.
33:48 And do not obey the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and heed not their hurt, but rely on Allah, and Allah is sufficient as a protector.
33:49 O you who have believed! When you marry believing women and then divorce them before you touch them, you have no period to reckon against them; so give them a present, and release them in a handsome manner.
33:50 O'Prophet! Verily We have made lawful to you the wives whom you have paid their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses of those whom Allah has assigned to you, and (marriage with) the daughters of your paternal uncle, and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and daughters of your maternal uncle, and the daughters of your maternal aunts who have emigrated with you, and a believing woman if she gives herself unto the Prophet, if the Prophet desires to wed her, for you exclusively, not for the (rest of the) believers. Indeed We know what We have ordained for them about their wives and those whom their right hands possess in order that there should be no difficulty for you. And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
33:51 You may put off whom you please of them, and you may take to you whom you please, and whom you desire of those of whom you have separated, no blame shall be on you, this is most proper to give them the joy of their eyes and they may not grieve, and that they should be pleased, all of them with what you give them, and Allah knows what is in your hearts; and Allah is Knowing, Forgiving.
33:52 Thereafter women are not lawful to you, neither for you to take other wives in exchange for them, though their beauty may charm you, except what your right hand possesses, and Allah is watchful over all things.
33:53 O you who believe! Do not enter the houses of the Prophet for a meat without waiting for the proper time, unless permission be granted you. But when you are invited, enter, and, when your meal is ended, then disperse; neither lingering for conversation; verily this annoys the Prophet, and he is ashamed before you, but Allah is not ashamed before the truth. And when you ask his wives for any object, ask them from behind a curtain. This is purer for your hearts and for their hearts. And it is not for you to hurt Allah's Messenger, neither to marry his wives after him, ever, verily this is grievous (sin) with Allah.
33:54 Whether you reveal anything or conceal it, verily Allah has full knowledge of all things.
33:55 There is no sin for them (not to have veil) with their fathers, nor their sons, nor their brothers, nor their brothers' sons, nor the sons of their sisters, nor their own women, nor of what their right hands possess; and be in awe of Allah! Verily Allah is a witness of all things.
33:56 Verily Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet, O you who believe! Send you also blessings on him, and you salute him with submission.
33:57 Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and He has prepared for them a humiliating punishment.
33:58 And those who annoy believing men and believing women without that they have earned it, have laid upon themselves a calumny and a manifest sin.
33:59 O' Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers that they draw their veils close to them, that is most convenient that they should be known (as such) and not be annoyed, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
33:60 If the hypocrites and those in whose heart is a disease and the agitators in the city do not desist, We shall certainly rouse you up against them, then they shall not be your neighbours in it, but a little while;
33:61 Accursed, wherever they are found they shall be seized and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.
33:62 (Such has been) the way of Allah concerning those who have passed away before, and you shall never find any change in the way of Allah.
33:63 The people will ask you concerning the Hour (of Judgment). Say: 'The knowledge of it is only with Allah; what shall make you know? Perhaps the Hour (of Judgment) is nigh'.
33:64 Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers and has prepared for them a flaming fire,
33:65 Wherein they will abide for ever. They will find no protecting friend nor a helper.
33:66 On the Day when their faces are turned over in the Fire, they say: 'Oh! Would that we had obeyed Allah and had obeyed the Messenger!'
33:67 And they shall say: 'O our Lord! Verily we obeyed our chiefs and our elders, and they led us astray from the path'.
33:68 O' our Lord! Give them double chastisement and curse them with a great curse.
33:69 O' you who believe! Be not like those who hurt Moses (with a slander), but Allah cleared him of what they said, and he was well esteemed with Allah.
33:70 O' you who believe! Be in awe of Allah and speak you the right word,
33:71 He will adjust your works for you and will forgive you, your sins, and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, then indeed he has achieved a great success.
33:72 Verily We offered the trust unto the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused to bear it, and were afraid thereof; and man undertook it, verily he is unjust, ignorant.
33:73 So Allah punishes the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and the polytheist-men and the polytheist-women and Allah turns in mercy to the believer-men and the believer-women, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
