33:1  Prophet! Reverence God and obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites. Truly God is Knowing, Wise
33:2  And follow that which is revealed unto thee from thy Lord. Truly God is Aware of whatsoever you do
33:3  And trust in God; God suffices as a Guardian
33:4  God has not placed two hearts in the breast of any man. Nor has He made your wives whom you repudiate with the practice of ?ihar your mothers. Nor has He made those whom you claim [as sons] your sons. Those are mere words from your mouths. But God speaks the Truth and guides upon the way
33:5  Call them after their fathers. That is more equitable before God. And if you do not know their fathers, then they are your brethren in religion and your clients. There is no blame upon you for being mistaken therein, but only for that which your hearts intend. And God is Forgiving, Merciful
33:6  The Prophet is closer to the believers than they are to themselves, and his wives are their mothers. Family relations are closer to one another, according to the Book of God, than are the believers and the emigrants. Nonetheless, you should act rightly toward your friends. That is inscribed in the Book
33:7  And [remember] when We made with the prophets their covenant, and with thee, and with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus the son of Mary; We made with them a solemn covenant
33:8  that the truthful may be questioned concerning their truthfulness. And for the disbelievers He has prepared a painful punishment
33:9  O you who believe! Remember the Blessing of God upon you when the hosts came upon you and We sent against them a wind and hosts that you saw not—and God sees whatsoever you do
33:10  when they came upon you from above you and below you, and when eyes swerved and hearts reached into throats, and you thought many things regarding God
33:11  It was there that the believers were tried and shaken in a manner most severe
33:12  And when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease said, “God and His Messenger promised us naught but delusion.
33:13  And when a group among them said, “O people of Yathrib! There is no stand for you; so turn back.” And a group among them sought permission from the Prophet, saying, “Truly our houses are exposed,” though they were not exposed. They wanted naught but to flee
33:14  Had they been entered upon from the sides of the city, then were exhorted to treachery, they would have committed it and would not have hesitated, save a little
33:15  though previously they had made a pact with God that they would not turn their backs; and the pact with God is called to account
33:16  Say, “Fleeing will not benefit you if you flee from death or killing, for you will not be granted enjoyment, save a little.
33:17  Say, “Who is it who will protect you from God if He desires evil for you or desires mercy for you?” They will find no protector or helper for themselves apart from God
33:18  Surely God knows those among you who hinder and those who say unto their brethren, “Come hither unto us”; yet they come not to the battle, save a little
33:19  greedy toward you. But when fear comes, thou seest them looking at thee with their eyes rolling like one whom death overwhelms. Then when fear subsides, they assail thee with their sharp tongues, greedy for good things. Such as these have not believed; so God made their deeds come to naught, and that is easy for God
33:20  They suppose that the parties have not withdrawn, and if the parties were to come, they would wish they were in the desert among the Bedouin, seeking news of you. And were they among you, they would not fight, save a little
33:21  Indeed, you have in the Messenger of God a beautiful example for those who hope for God and the Last Day, and remember God much
33:22  When the believers saw the parties, they said, “This is what God and His Messenger promised; God and His Messenger spoke true.” And it increased them in naught but faith and submission
33:23  Among the believers are men who have been true to that which they pledged unto God. Among them are those who have fulfilled their vow, and among them are those who wait, and they have not changed in the least
33:24  that God may recompense the truthful for their truthfulness and punish the hypocrites if He will, or relent unto them. Truly God is Forgiving, Merciful
33:25  And God turned back those who disbelieved in their rage; they attained no good. God sufficed the believers in battle; and God is Strong, Mighty
33:26  He brought the People of the Book who supported them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts—some you slew and some you took captive
33:27  And He bequeathed unto you their land, their homes, their property, and a land you have not trodden. And God is Powerful over all things
33:28  O Prophet! Say unto thy wives, “If you desire the life of this world and its ornament, then come! I shall provide for you and release you in a fair manner
33:29  But if you desire God and His Messenger and the Abode of the Hereafter, then truly God has prepared a great reward for the virtuous among you.
33:30  O wives of the Prophet! Whosoever among you commits a flagrant indecency, her punishment will be doubled; and that is easy for God
33:31  And whosoever among you is devoutly obedient to God and His Messenger and works righteousness, We shall give her her reward twice over, and We have prepared for her a generous provision
33:32  O wives of the Prophet! You are not like other women. If you are reverent, then be not overly soft in speech, lest one in whose heart is a disease be moved to desire; and speak in an honorable way
33:33  Abide in your homes and flaunt not your charms as they did flaunt them in the prior Age of Ignorance. Perform the prayer, give the alms, and obey God and His Messenger. God only desires to remove defilement from you, O People of the House, and to purify you completely
33:34  And remember that which is recited unto you in your homes from among the signs and Wisdom of God. Truly God is Subtle, Aware
33:35  For submitting men and submitting women, believing men and believing women, devout men and devout women, truthful men and truthful women, patient men and patient women, humble men and humble women, charitable men and charitable women, men who fast and women who fast, men who guard their private parts and women who guard [their private parts], men who remember God often and women who remember [God often], God has prepared forgiveness and a great reward
33:36  And it is not for a believing man or a believing woman, when God and His Messenger have decreed a matter, to have a choice regarding the matter. Whosoever disobeys God and His Messenger has strayed into manifest error
33:37  And [remember] when thou said unto him whom God has blessed and whom thou hast blessed, “Retain your wife for yourself and reverence God,” thou wast hiding in thyself that which God was to disclose; and thou didst fear the people, though God has more right to be feared by thee. Then when Zayd relinquished his claim upon her, We wed her to thee, so that there should be no restriction for the believers in respect to the wives of their adopted sons when the latter have relinquished their claims upon them. And the Command of God shall be fulfilled
33:38  There is no restriction for the Prophet in what God has ordained for him. [That is] the wont of God with those who passed away before—and God’s Command is a decree determined
33:39  those who convey God’s messages and fear Him, and fear none but God. And God suffices as a Reckoner
33:40  Muhammad is not the father of any man among you; rather, he is the Messenger of God and the Seal of the prophets. And God is Knower of all things.
33:41  you who believe! Remember God with frequent remembrance
33:42  and glorify Him morning and evening
33:43  He it is Who blesses you, as do His angels, that He may bring you out of darkness into light. And He is Merciful unto the believers
33:44  Their greeting on the day they meet Him will be “Peace.” And He has prepared for them a generous reward
33:45  O Prophet! Truly We have sent thee as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner
33:46  as one who calls unto God by His Leave, and as a luminous lamp
33:47  Give glad tidings to the believers that there will be for them a great bounty from God
33:48  Obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites; disregard their affront, and trust in God. God suffices as a Guardian.
33:49  you who believe! If you marry believing women and then divorce them before you have touched them, there shall be no waiting period for you to reckon against them. But provide for them and release them in a fair manner
33:50  O Prophet! We have made lawful for thee thy wives to whom thou hast given their bridewealth, as well as those whom thy right hand possesses of those whom God has granted thee as spoils of war, and the daughters of thy paternal uncles and the daughters of thy paternal aunts, and the daughters of thy maternal uncles and the daughters of thy maternal aunts who emigrated with thee, and any believing woman if she gives herself [in marriage] to the Prophet and if the Prophet desires to marry her—for thee alone, not for [the rest of] the believers. We know well what We have enjoined upon them with respect to their wives and those whom their right hands possess, that there may be no blame upon thee. And God is Forgiving, Merciful
33:51  Thou mayest put off whomsoever of them thou wilt and receive whomsoever thou wilt. And as for whomsoever thou mightest desire of those whom thou hast set aside, there is no blame upon thee. Thus is it likelier that they will be comforted, that they will not grieve, and that they will be content with that which thou hast given all of them. God knows what is in your hearts. And God is Knowing, Clement
33:52  Women are not lawful for thee beyond that, nor [is it lawful] for thee to exchange them for other wives, though their beauty impresses thee, save those whom thy right hand possesses. And God is Watcher over all things
33:53  O you who believe! Enter not the dwellings of the Prophet for a meal without waiting for its time to come, unless leave be granted you. But if you are invited, enter; and when you have eaten, disperse. Linger not, seeking discourse. Truly that would affront the Prophet, and he would shrink from telling you, but God shrinks not from the truth. And when you ask anything of [his wives], ask them from behind a veil. That is purer for your hearts and their hearts. And you should never affront the Messenger of God, nor marry his wives after him. Truly that would be an enormity in the sight of God
33:54  Whether you disclose something or conceal it, surely God is Knower of all things
33:55  There is no blame upon them with regard to their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their own women, or those whom their right hands possess. And reverence God. Truly God is Witness over all things
33:56  Truly God and His angels invoke blessings upon the Prophet. O you who believe! Invoke blessings upon him, and greetings of peace!
33:57  Truly those who affront God and His Messenger, God has cursed them in this life and the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating punishment.
33:58  As for those who affront believing men and believing women for other than what they may have committed, they bear the burden of calumny and manifest sin.
33:59  O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters, and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks over themselves. Thus is it likelier that they will be known and not be disturbed. And God is Forgiving, Merciful.
33:60  If the hypocrites do not desist, and likewise those in whose hearts is a disease, as well as those who spread false rumors in the city, We shall surely spur thee against them; then they will not be your neighbors therein, save for a short while.
33:61  Accursed! They will be seized wheresoever they are found and utterly slain.
33:62  [That is] the wont of God with those who passed before; and you will find no alteration in the wont of God
33:63  People question thee concerning the Hour. Say, “Knowledge thereof lies only with God. And what will apprise thee, perhaps the Hour is nigh.
33:64  Truly God curses the disbelievers and prepares for them a blazing flame
33:65  therein to abide forever; they will find no protector or helper
33:66  On the Day when their faces are turned about in the Fire, they will say, “Oh, would that we had obeyed God and obeyed the Messenger!
33:67  They will say, “Our Lord! Truly we obeyed our leaders and elders, and they caused us to stray from the way
33:68  Our Lord! Give them a twofold punishment, and curse them with a great curse.”
33:69  you who believe! Be not as those who affronted Moses, whereat God declared him innocent of what they alleged, and he was honored with God.
33:70  you who believe! Reverence God and speak justly
33:71  that He may set your deeds aright for you, and forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys God and His Messenger has achieved a great triumph
33:72  Truly We offered the Trust unto the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused to bear it, and were wary of it—yet man bore it; truly he has proved himself an ignorant wrongdoer
33:73  That God may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, the idolatrous men and the idolatrous women, and that God may relent unto the believing men and the believing women. And God is Forgiving, Merciful
