48:1  Indeed, We have given you victory, a clear victory.
48:2  So that God forgives your past faults and future ones, and completes His favor to you, and guides you to a straight path,
48:3  and that God helps you, a powerful help.
48:4  He is the One Who sent down calmness into the hearts of the believers, so that they add belief to their belief. And the forces/armies of the skies and the earth belong to God, and God is knowledgeable and wise.
48:5  So that He admits the believing men and believing women to gardens which rivers flow through them, remaining in there forever, and He removes their sins from them. And that is a great victory with God.
48:6  And He punishes the hypocrite men and the hypocrite women and the idolater men and the idolater women who think bad thoughts about God. A circle of badness is on them, and God’s anger is upon them, and He has cursed them and has prepared hell for them, and it is a bad destination.
48:7  And the forces/armies of the skies and the earth belong to God, and God is knowledgeable and wise.
48:8  Indeed, We have sent you as a witness and a giver of good news and a warner,
48:9  so that you believe in God and His messenger and assist him, and honor him/Him and glorify Him morning and afternoon.
48:10  Those who pledge allegiance to you are indeed pledging allegiance to God, God’s hand is above their hands (as a sign of God's pledge). So, whoever breaks (his pledge), he only breaks it against himself, and whoever fulfills what he has promised to God, then He is going to give him a great reward.
48:11  The desert Arabs who stayed behind are going to say to you: “Our possessions and our families kept us busy, so ask forgiveness for us.” They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say: “Who has any power for you against God, if He wants any harm for you or He wants any benefit for you? But God is well informed of what you do.”
48:12  No, but you assumed that the messenger and the believers never ever return to their families, and that was beautified in your hearts, and you assumed bad thoughts and you became doomed people.
48:13  And anyone who does not believe in God and His messenger, indeed We have prepared a burning fire for the disbelievers.
48:14  And the rule of the skies and the earth belongs to God. He forgives anyone He wants and punishes anyone He wants. And God is forgiving and merciful.
48:15  When you set out to take the spoils (of war), those who stayed behind are going to say: “Let us follow you.” They want to change God’s word. Say: “You never follow us; this is what God has said earlier.” Then they are going to say: “No, but you are jealous of us.” No, but they only understand a little.
48:16  Say to the desert Arabs who stay behind: “You are going to be called on against people of great strength, you will fight them unless they surrender, if you obey, God will give you a good reward and if you turn back as you turned back earlier, He will punish you a painful punishment.”
48:17  There is no blame on the blind, and no blame on the lame (and crippled), and no blame on the sick (if they do not fight). And anyone who obeys God and His messenger, He will admit him to gardens which rivers flow through them. And whoever turns back, He will punish him with a painful punishment.
48:18  God was certainly pleased with the believers when they pledged allegiance to you under the tree, He knew what was in their hearts, so He sent down calmness upon them and He rewarded them with a forthcoming victory,
48:19  and a lot of spoils (of war) that they will take, and God is powerful and wise.
48:20  God has promised you a lot of spoils (of war) that you will take, then He rushed this for you, and He held back people’s hands from you so that it becomes a sign for the believers, and He guides you to a straight path.
48:21  And other (gains) which you did not have power over them, but God has surrounded them (and has complete control of them), and God is capable of everything.
48:22  And if those who disbelieve fight you, they shall turn back (and run away), then they will not find any supporter and no helper.
48:23  (this is) God’s way that has passed on from before, and you never find any change in God’s way.
48:24  And He is the One Who held back their hands from you and your hands from them inside Mecca after He made you victorious over them. And God is watchful of whatever you do.
48:25  They are those who disbelieved, and obstructed you from the Sacred Mosque, and the offering was prevented to reach its place (of sacrifice). And (you would have attacked Mecca) if it was not for the believing men and believing women whom you did not know that you would have unknowingly trampled them and then you would have been afflicted by disgrace from them. For God admits anyone He wants into His mercy. If they (believers and disbelievers) were apart, We would have certainly punished those among them who disbelieved with a painful punishment.
48:26  When those who disbelieved put prejudice, the prejudice of the (days of) ignorance, in their hearts, then God sent down His calmness to His messenger and to the believers and made them keep the word of self control, and they were more deserving of it and suited for it. And God knows everything.
48:27  God has certainly proved the vision of His messenger with truth, that if God wants, you shall enter the Sacred Mosque having your heads shaved or (your hairs) shortened, safely and without being afraid. And He knew what you did not know, so He put a forthcoming victory besides that.
48:28  He is the One Who sent His messenger with the guidance and the right way of life (religion) in order to inform him about all of the religion (God's recommended way of life). And God is enough as a witness.
48:29  Muhammad is God's messenger, and those with him are firm against the disbelievers and kind among themselves. You see them bowing down, showing humbleness, looking for God’s grace and pleasure. Their mark (appearance) is in their faces from effect of the humbleness. That is their example in the Torah, and their example in the Gospel is like a seed that brings out its shoots then strengthens it then becomes thick then it stands on its stem impressing the farmers, therefore He angers the disbelievers with them. God has promised forgiveness and a great reward to those among them who believe and do good.
