Those who do not believe and turn away (people) from the way of Allah, He makes their deeds get lost.
And those who believe and do righteous works and believe in that which is sent down on Muhammed, and that is the truth from their Fosterer, He removes from them their evils and sets right their condition.
That is because those who do not believe follow falsehood and those who believe follow the truth from their Fosterer. Thus Allah sets forth for mankind their similitudes.
So when you meet (in the battle) those who do not believe, strike off their necks until when you dominate them, then strengthen the bounds (of imprisonment); then afterwards, either show favour or ransom (them), till the war (ends and) lays down its burdens (do like) that. And if Allah wills, He can defend (you) from them, but (He involves you in such situations) that He may test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the way of Allah, their deeds will never be lost.
He will guide them and set right their condition.
And He will make them enter the garden which He has made known to them.
O you who believe! if you help Allah, He will help you and make your feet firm.
And those who do not believe, there is destruction for them and He makes their deeds get lost.
That is because they disliked that which Allah sent down, so He made their deeds become fruitless.
Have they not then traveled in the earth and seen, how the end of those before them was (brought about)? Allah brought down destruction upon them and for (these) infidels (too, there will be something) similar to it.
That is because Allah is the Guardian of those who believe, and because the infidels have no guardian for them.
Allah will certainly make those who believe and do righteous works enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, and those who do not believe, (they) enjoy themselves and eat as the cattle eat, and the fire will be their home.
And how many towns (were there) which were severer in strength than your town (Mecca) which sent you out, (but) We destroyed them, so there was no helper for them.
Then, is he, who is on a clear proof from his Fosterer, like him, to whom the evil of his deed is made fair-seeming? And they follow their desires.
A similitude of the garden, which is promised to those who guard (against evil): In it there are rivers of water without pollution and rivers of milk the taste of which does not change and rivers of wine delicious to the drinkers and rivers of clarified honey and therein for them are all (kinds) of fruits and protective forgiveness from their Fosterer. (Are these) like those who will stay in the fire and will be given boiling water to drink so that it cuts their bowels?
And among them are those who seek to hear you until when they go out from your presence, (then) they say to those who have been given knowledge, “What was it that he said just now?” Those are the persons on whose hearts Allah has set a seal and they follow their desires.
And those who receive guidance, He increases them in guidance and gives them (the quality of) guarding (against evil).
Do they wait for anything but the hour of doom that it should come on them suddenly? Then its tokens have already come. Then how will their (being) mindful (be beneficial) to them when it (actually) comes on them?
Then know that there is no god except Allah and seek protection for your sin and for the believing men and the believing women. And Allah knows your places of movement and your places of rest (homes).
And those who believe say, “Why is not a sura, (a chapter of the Quran) sent down?” But when a decisive sura is sent down and fighting is mentioned therein, you see those in whose hearts is a disease, looking at you with a look of one who is fainting because of death, so sorrowful is their state.
(What is required is) obedience and a recognised (good) word. Then when the affair is determined, then if they be truthful to Allah, that would be better for them.
But if you held command, is it not possible that you will cause corruption in the earth and cut off the ties of your relationships?
Those are the persons whom Allah has cursed so He has made them deaf and blinded their eyes.
Do they not then reflect on the Quran or are there locks on their hearts?
Those who turn on their backs after (receiving) the guidance which has been made clear to them, the devil has certainly inclined them (away from the Quran) while giving them (false) hopes.
That is because, they say to those who dislike that which Allah has sent down, “We will obey you in some of the affairs,” and Allah knows their secrets.
Then how will it be when the angels will take them back (by causing them to die), striking their faces and their backs?
That is because, they followed that which displeased Allah and disliked pleasing Him, therefore He made their deeds fruitless.
Or do those in whose hearts is a disease think, that Allah will not expose their bad intentions?
And if We will We could show them to you, so that you could recognise them by their marks, and you will definitely recognise them by (their) distortion in speech and Allah knows your deeds.
And We will definitely test you till We know (mark out) those among you who strive and are patient, and We will , examine the reports of your (behaviour).
Those who do not believe and turn away (people) from the way of Allah and oppose the messenger after (receiving) the guidance which has been made clear to them, they will certainly never be able to harm Allah in anyway and He will make their deeds fruitless.
O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the messenger and do not make your deeds vain.
Those who do not believe and turn away (people) from the way of Allah then die while they are infidels, then Allah will never forgive them.
So do not be weak (hearted) and (do not) invite (them) towards peace when you are dominating, and Allah is with you and He will never leave your deeds (go unrewarded).
The life of this world is only sport and pastime and if you believe and guard (against evil), He will give you your reward and He will not ask you for your wealth.
If He asks you for the (wealth) then insists (on it) you will hoard it (due to niggardliness) and your bad intentions will be exposed.
Behold ! you are such people who are invited to spend in the way of Allah, but among you is he who hoards (due to niggardliness). But he who hoards, is niggardly only against his own soul. And Allah is Independent while you are the needy, and if you turn away He will exchange you for people other than you, then they will not be like you.
