47:1  Those who disbelieve (and reject Allah) and obstruct (others) from the Path of Allah— He (Allah) will make their deeds useless
47:2  But those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and believe in the (Revelation) sent down to Muhammad— For it is the Truth from their Lord— He will remove from them, their sins (and their ills) and improve their condition
47:3  This is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the Truth from their Lord: This way does Allah bring out for men their lessons by similarity
47:4  Therefore, when you meet the unbelievers [in a holy battle], strike (hard) at their necks; Till you have fully defeated (and finally felled) them. Place a bond firmly (on them): Thereafter (is the time for) either kindness or negotiation (with ransom): Until, the war lays down its burdens, (and it ends). Like this (are you commanded); But if it had been Allah’s Will, He (Himself) could certainly have ordered punishment for them; But (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some (to fight) with others. But those who are killed in the way of Allah— He will never let their deeds be lost
47:5  Soon, He will guide them and improve their condition
47:6  And (He will) admit them to the Paradise that He has declared (especially) for them
47:7  O you who believe! If you will help (the Cause of) Allah, He will help you and plant your feet firmly (to make you strong)
47:8  But those who disbelieve and (reject Allah)— For them awaits misery and destruction, and (Allah) will make their deeds useless
47:9  That is because they hate the Revelation of Allah so He has made their actions fruitless
47:10  Have they not traveled through the earth, and see what happened in the end of those before them (who did evil)? Allah brought total destruction on them, and similar (fate awaits) the disbelievers
47:11  That is because Allah is the Protector (Maula) of those who believe, and verily the disbelievers have no protector
47:12  Surely, Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous good deeds, to Paradise beneath which rivers flow; While the disbelievers will enjoy (this world) and eat as cattle eat: And Fire will be their home
47:13  And how many cities, with more power than your city (Makkah) that has driven you out, have We destroyed (for the sins of their people)? And there was none to help them
47:14  Then, can he who is on a clear (Path) from his Lord, no better than one to whom the evil of his conduct seems pleasing, and those who follow their own desires
47:15  (Here is) a story (of similarity) about the Paradise which the righteous (the pious believers) are promised: In it are rivers of water made pure and clean; Rivers of milk whose taste never changes; Rivers of wine, a joy to those who drink; And rivers of honey, pure and clear. In it, there are for them all kinds of fruits; And forgiveness (and grace) from their Lord. (Can those in these Gardens) be compared to those who shall live, forever in the Fire, and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their stomachs (to pieces)
47:16  And among them are men who listen to you, but in the end, when they go away from you, they say to those who have received knowledge, "What is it he said just then?" Such are men whose hearts Allah has sealed, because they follow their own (evil) wishes
47:17  And as for those who receive (Allah’s) guidance, He increases the (light of) guidance, and places on them their (true) Faith and (pure) control (away from evil)
47:18  Then, do they (the unbelievers) only wait for the Hour— That it should come on them of a sudden? But already have come some tokens of it, and when it is (actually) on them, then, how can they benefit by their warnings
47:19  (O Prophet), therefore know, that there is no god but Allah, and ask forgiveness for your sin, and for the men and women who believe: For Allah knows how you move about and (Allah knows) how you live in your homes
47:20  Those who believe say, "Why is a (specific) Sura not sent down (for us)?" But when a Sura of basic or clear meaning is revealed, and fighting is said in it, you will see those (hypocrites) in whose heart is a disease looking at you with a look of one with great fear at the approach of death, but it is better (more fitting) for them—
47:21  Were they to obey (Allah) and say good word what are just, when a matter (of holy war) is resolved (by Allah’s Will), it would be best for them, if they were true to Allah
47:22  Then, is it to be expected of you, if you were put in authority, that you will do mischief in the land, and break your ties with (people and) relatives
47:23  Such (unbelievers) are the men whom Allah has cursed for He has made them deaf and blinded their sight
47:24  Then, do they not, honestly try to understand the Quran, or are their hearts locked up by them
47:25  Verily, those who turn their back like the rejecters after guidance was clearly shown to them— The Satan has misguided them and built them up with false hopes
47:26  That is because they said to those who hate what Allah has revealed: "We will obey (you) in part of (this) matter;" But Allah knows their (inner) secrets
47:27  Then how (will it be) when the angels take their souls at death, and strike their faces and their backs
47:28  That is because they acted upon that which brought about the Anger of Allah, and they hated Allah’s good pleasure, so He made their deeds of no effect
47:29  Or do those in whose hearts is a disease, think that Allah will not bring to light all their evil intentions
47:30  Had We so willed, We could have shown them to you, and you should have known them by their marks: But surely you will know them by the way they talk! And Allah knows all that you do
47:31  And We shall try you until We test those among you who do their very best and continue to work very hard in patience; And We shall try your stated (and true character)
47:32  Verily, those who disbelieve and, obstruct (other men) from the Path of Allah, and resist the Messenger (the Prophet), after guidance has been clearly shown to them, they will not hurt Allah in the least, but He (Allah) will make their actions fruitless
47:33  O you who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger (the Prophet Muhammad) and do not make your deeds useless
47:34  Verily, those who disbelieve, and obstruct (other men) from the Path of Allah, and then die rejecting Allah, Allah will not forgive them
47:35  Be not tired (and timid), and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when you should be at the very top: Allah is with you, and (He) will never put you in loss for your (good) deeds
47:36  The worldly life is nothing except a mere diversion (like play and amusement): And if you believe and guard against evil, He (Allah) will grant you your due rewards, and (He) will not ask you (for) your possessions
47:37  If He were to ask you for all of them, (your possessions) and press you, you would carefully withhold, and He would bring out all your ill-feeling
47:38  Behold! You are those invited to spend (of your wealth) in the Way of Allah: But among you are some who are miserly (and stingy). But those who are stingy are (miserly) at the expense of their own souls. But Allah is free of all wants, and it is you who are needy. If you turn back (from the Path), He will replace for you another people; Then they would not be like you
