47:1  God will bring to naught all the good deeds of those who are bent on denying the truth and bar [others] from the path of God
47:2  As for those who believe and do good deeds and believe in what has been revealed to Muhammadand it is the truth from their LordGod will remove their sins from them and set their condition right
47:3  That is because the ones who deny the truth follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the Truth from their Lord. Thus God sets forth comparisons for mankind
47:4  When you meet those who deny the truth in battle, strike them in the neck,[39] and once they are defeated, make [them] prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as an act of grace, or let them ransom [themselves] until the war is finally over. Thus you shall do; and if God had pleased, He would certainly have exacted retribution from them, but His purpose is to test some of you by means of others. As for those who are killed in God's cause, He will never let their deeds be in vain
47:5  He will guide them and improve their condition
47:6  He will admit them into the Garden He has already made known to them
47:7  Believers! If you succour God, He will succour you and make your footsteps firm
47:8  But as for those who are bent on denying the truth, destruction will be their lot, and [God] will make their deeds come to nothing
47:9  It is because they are averse to what God has revealed that He has rendered their deeds futile
47:10  Have they not travelled the earth and seen how those before them met their end? God destroyed them utterly: a similar fate awaits those who deny the truth
47:11  That is because God is the protector of the believers, and those who deny the truth have no protector at all
47:12  God will admit those who believe and do good deeds to Gardens through which rivers flow. Those who deny the truth may take their fill of pleasure in this world, and eat as cattle do, but the Fire will be their ultimate abode
47:13  How many towns We have destroyed, greater in strength than your city which has driven you out, and there was no one to help them
47:14  Can then he who takes his stand on clear evidence from his God be likened to those for whom the evil that they do is made to look beautiful, and who follow their own desires
47:15  Here is a description of the Garden promised to the righteous: therein are rivers of water which is forever pure; and rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; and rivers of wine, a delight to those who drink it, and rivers of pure honey. And in it they will have all kinds of fruit, and will receive forgiveness from their Lord. Can those who enjoy such bliss be like those who abide in the Fire and who are given boiling water to drink so that it tears their bowels
47:16  Among them are those who listen to you, but then, when they leave your presence, say to those who have been given knowledge [Scripture], What was that he just said? Such are those whose hearts God has sealed, and who follow their own base desires
47:17  But as for those who follow guidance, He adds to their guidance, and shows them the way to righteousness
47:18  Are they awaiting the Hour of Doom to come upon them suddenly? Its signs have already come. But of what avail will their admonition be to them when it has actually come upon them
47:19  Know then that there is no god except God. Ask forgiveness for your wrongdoing, and for the men and women who believe. God knows both your movements and your lodging
47:20  Those who believe ask why no chapter [about fighting] has been sent down. Yet when a decisive chapter that mentions fighting is sent down, you can see the sick of heart looking at you [Prophet] as if they were under the shadow of death. Therefore, woe to them
47:21  Obedience and saying what is just would become them more; when the decision is taken, it would be better for them if they acted sincerely towards God
47:22  Then if you turn away, you are likely to spread corruption on the earth and sever your ties of kinship
47:23  Such are those whom God has rejected, making their ears deaf and their eyes blind
47:24  Will they not, then, ponder over this Quran? Or are there locks upon their hearts
47:25  Surely, those who turn their backs [on this message] after guidance has been shown to them, [do it because] Satan has embellished their fancies and God gives them respite
47:26  because they say to those who abhor what God has revealed, We will obey you in some matters. God knows their secrets
47:27  Then how will it be when the angels take their souls, beating them on their faces and their backs
47:28  because they followed the way that made God wrathful, and hated to adopt the way of His pleasure? So He made their actions come to nothing
47:29  Do the sick at heart imagine that God will not bring to light their malice
47:30  Now had We so willed, We could have shown them clearly to you, and then you could have identified them by their marks, but surely you will know them by the tone of their speech! God knows all that you do
47:31  Most certainly We will try you until We have discovered those among you who strive their hardest, and those who are steadfast, and will test your record
47:32  Surely, they who are bent on denying the truth and on barring [others] from the path of God, and oppose the Messenger when they have been shown guidance, cannot harm God in any way. He will cause all their deeds to come to nothing
47:33  Believers, obey God and obey the Messenger: do not let your deeds go to wast
47:34  surely those who reject the truth and bar others from the path of God, then die as deniers of the truth, will not be granted forgiveness by God
47:35  So do not lose heart or appeal for peace when you have gained the upper hand. God is with you and will never let your works go to waste
47:36  The life of this world is only a game, a pastime, but if you believe and are mindful of God, He will recompense you and will not ask you for your wealth
47:37  If He were to ask it [wealth] of you, and continued to press you, you would be niggardly, and this would show your ill-will
47:38  Behold! You are those who are called upon to spend for God's cause, but among you are those who are niggardly, and whoever stints does so against his own self. Indeed, God is self-sufficient, but you stand in need [of Him], and if you turn back, He will bring in your place another people, who will not be like you
