Oh prophet, beware of Allah and do not obey those who reject (the truth) and the pretenders, for Allah is knowing and wise.
And follow that which has been revealed to you from your Lord, for Allah is informed of what you do.
And rely on Allah, and Allah is sufficient as a protector.
And Allah did not give any man two hearts inside him, and He did not make the wives whom you divorce by likening them to your mothers your mothers, and He did not make your adopted children your children; that is what you say with your mouths, and Allah tells the truth and He guides the way.
Call them after their fathers, it is more just before Allah, and if you don´t know their fathers, then they are your brothers in religion and your protégés, and there is no sin upon you in your mistakes but in what your hearts intend, and Allah is forgiving and merciful.
The prophet is more protective of the believers than they are themselves and his wives are their mothers, and relatives are mutual protectors of each other in the book of Allah, before the believers and the emigrants, but you should treat your protégés well; this is laid down in the book.
And when We took of the prophets their promise and of you and Nuh (Noah), Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses), ´Isa (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary), and We took a binding promise of them.
So that He will ask the truthful about their truthfulness, and He has promised to those who reject (the truth) a painful punishment.
Oh you believers, remember the blessings of Allah upon you when fighters reached you and We sent against them a wind and fighters you did not see, and Allah sees what you do.
When they came upon you from above and below and when your eyesight faded and you lost heart and had second thoughts about Allah.
There the believers were tested and shaken severely.
And when the pretenders and those with a disease in their hearts said: Allah and His messenger only promised us an illusion.
And when a party from them said: oh inhabitants of Yathrib, you have no foothold so turn back, and a group from them asked the prophet to be excused saying: our houses are unprotected, but they were not unprotected, they only wanted to flee.
And if they had been overrun and been asked into temptation (to rebel), they would have done so and hesitated only little.
And they had previously promised Allah that they would not turn their backs, and the promise to Allah will be asked about.
Say: fleeing will not benefit you when you flee from death or fighting and then only enjoy it a little.
Say: who will protect you against Allah if He wants harm for you or mercy? And they will not find besides Allah any protector or helper.
Allah already knows those of you who cause a hindrance and those who say to their brothers: come, join us, when they rarely show courage themselves.
They are jealous of you, and at times of fear you see them look at you, their eyes turning like one whom death has overtaken; then when the fear passes, they scald you with a harsh tongue, greedy for the benefit. Those do not believe, so Allah has frustrated their efforts, and that is easy for Allah.
They think that the allies had not gone, and if the allies came, they wish they could hide amongst the desert Arabs asking for news about you, and if they were amongst you, they would not fight much.
You have in the messenger of Allah a beautiful example for whoever hopes for Allah and the last day and remembers Allah a lot.
And when the believers saw the allies, they said: this is what Allah and His messenger promised us, and Allah and His messenger were truthful, and it only increases them in belief and submission.
Amongst the believers are men who are true to what they promised Allah, and amongst them is he who has discharged his obligation, and amongst them is he who waits, and they did not change the least.
So that Allah rewards the truthful for their truthfulness and punishes the pretenders if He pleases or turns back to them, for Allah is forgiving and merciful.
And that Allah turns back those who reject (the truth) with their anger, not having gained any benefit, and Allah is sufficient for the believers in battle, and Allah is strong and mighty.
And He made those of the people of the book who had assisted them come down from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts; you killed a group and took a group captive.
And He made you inherit their land and homes and wealth as well as land you never passed before, and Allah is able to do anything.
Oh prophet, say to your wives: if you desire the life of this world and its ornaments, then come, I will give you provision and let you go in a nice way.
And if you desire Allah and His messenger and the abode of the hereafter, then Allah has promised those who do good among you an immense reward.
Oh women of the prophet, whoever of you commits a clear indecency, the punishment will be doubled for her, and that is easy for Allah.
And whoever of you is content with Allah and His messenger and does good, We give her her reward twice and have promised her a dignified provision.
Oh women of the prophet, you are not like any other woman, if you beware (of Allah), then be not too accommodating in speech so that he in whose heart there is a disease takes hope, and speak appropriately.
And remain in your homes and do not show off like in the early days of ignorance and keep up prayer and give Zakat and obey Allah and His messenger. Allah wants to avert any disgrace from you, oh members of the household, and purify you completely.
And remember what is being recited in your homes of the signs of Allah and the wisdom, for Allah is kind and informed.
For men and women who submit (as Muslims), and men and women who believe, and men and women who are humble, and men and women who are truthful, and men and women who are patient, and men and women who are devote, and men and women who are charitable, and men and women who fast, and men and women who guard their chastity, and men and women who remember Allah often, Allah has promised them forgiveness and a tremendous reward.
And it is not befitting for a believing man or woman that, when Allah and His messenger have decided a matter, they should have a choice in the matter; and whoever disobeys Allah and His messenger has clearly gone astray.
And when you said to him whom Allah had favoured and whom you had favoured: hold on to your wife and beware of Allah, and you concealed within you what Allah will disclose and feared people when Allah has more right to be feared; so when Zayd had parted from her, We married her to you so that there would be no sin upon the believers regarding the wives of their adopted sons when they have parted from them, and Allah´s command comes to pass.
There is no blame on the prophet in what Allah has prescribed for him, the custom of Allah amongst those who went before, and Allah´s command is a firm decree.
Those who convey the messages of Allah and fear Him and fear nobody except Allah, and Allah is sufficient for keeping count.
Muhammad is not the father of any of your men but the messenger of Allah and the seal of the prophets, and Allah knows all things.
Oh you believers, remember Allah often.
And glorify Him in the mornings and evenings.
He is who sends blessings on you, and so do His angels, in order to bring you out of darkness to the light, and He is merciful with the believers.
Their greeting on the day they meet Him will be peace, and He has promised them a generous reward.
Oh prophet, We have sent you as a witness, bringer of good news and warner.
And one who calls to Allah and a radiant light.
And give good news to the believers that they will have great favours from Allah.
And do not obey those who reject (the truth) and the pretenders and ignore their harm and rely on Allah, and Allah is sufficient as a protector.
Oh you believers, if you marry believing women and then divorce them before touching them, then there is no waiting period for them to count, so give them provision and release them in a nice way.
Oh prophet, We have made permissible for you your wives whom you have given their dues and those in your possession from the captives Allah has given you, and the daughters of your paternal uncles and paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles and maternal aunts who migrated with you, and any believing woman who wants to give herself to the prophet if the prophet wants to marry her - exclusively for you and not the believers, We know what We have prescribed for them regarding their wives and those in their possession - so that there will be no blame on you, and Allah is forgiving and merciful.
Let be whom you please and draw close to you whom you please, and if you desire one whom you have set aside, it is no sin for you; that is more likely to give them comfort and not to make them worry and let them be content with what you have given each of them, and Allah knows what is in your hearts, and Allah is knowing and gentle.
No further women are permitted to you after that, nor that you replace them with other wives, even if you like their beauty, except for those in your possession, and Allah watches over everything.
Oh you believers, do not enter the homes of the prophet except after having been given permission for food and without waiting around for it, but if you have been called, then enter, and once you have eaten, then disperse without socialising in talk, for that troubles the prophet but he is shy of you, yet Allah is not shy of the truth. And if you ask them (his wives) for provision, then ask them from behind a curtain, that is purer for your hearts and their hearts. And it is not befitting for you to trouble the prophet nor to ever marry his wives after him, for that would be a serious matter with Allah.
If you disclose something or hide it, Allah knows everything.
There is no sin upon them regarding their fathers, sons, brothers, brothers´ sons, sisters´ sons nor their womenfolk and those in their possession; and beware of Allah, for Allah is a witness to everything.
Allah and His angels send blessings upon the prophet; oh you believers, send blessings upon him and abundant peace.
Those who insult Allah and the prophet, Allah has cursed them in this world and the hereafter and prepared for them a humiliating punishment.
And those who insult the believing men and women without cause are guilty of slander and clear sin.
Oh prophet, tell your wives, daughters and the women of the believers to draw their outer garments around them, that makes it more likely for them to be recognised and not molested, and Allah is forgiving and merciful.
If the pretenders and those with a disease in their hearts and those who spread rumours in Madinah do not stop, We will let you deal with them, then they will not remain in your neighbourhood for long.
They will be cursed, wherever they are found they will be captured and killed.
The custom of Allah with those who went before, and you will not find a change in the custom of Allah.
People ask you about the hour, say: knowledge of it is with Allah, and how can you tell whether the hour might be near.
Allah has cursed those who reject (the truth) and prepared a flame for them.
They will remain in it forever; they will not find a protector nor helper.
On the day their faces will be flung into the fire they will say: woe to us, we should have obeyed Allah and obeyed the messenger.
And they will say: our Lord, we obeyed our masters and chiefs, so they lead us astray from the path.
Our Lord, give them twice the punishment and curse them with a mighty curse.
Oh you believers, do not be like those who insulted Musa (Moses), so Allah cleared him of what they said and he was respected before Allah.
Oh you believers, beware of Allah and talk within limits.
He will improve your work and forgive you your sins, and whoever obeys Allah and His messenger has achieved ultimate success.
We presented the trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they refused to bear it and were apprehensive about it, and man bore it, for he was transgressing and foolish.
In order for Allah to punish the male and female pretenders and idolaters and for Allah to turn in acceptance to the male and female believers, and Allah is forgiving and merciful.
