48:1  Indeed, We opened up a path to a clear victory for you
48:2  in order that Allah may forgive the past and the future sins of your people, and perfect His favours on you, and guide you to the straight path;
48:3  and Allah will help you in a mighty way. He gave the believers’ hearts an inner peace so their faith grew ever stronger.
48:4  The forces of the Heavens and the Earth belong to Allah, the Knower, the Wise.
48:5  Believing men and women’s sins will be deleted, and admitted to Paradise, beneath which rivers flow, to live there forever. This is a great achievement from Allah
48:6  The hypocrites: men and women, and idolatrous men and women, who think wrong thoughts about Allah will be overwhelmed by Allah’s wrath and curse, and evil from all sides; and He has prepared Hell for them; a miserable place of no return.
48:7  The forces of Heaven and the Earth are Allah’s, the Almighty, Wise
48:8  We sent you as a witness, a giver of good news and a warner,
48:9  so you people will believe in Allah and His Messenger, and support him and honour him. And glorify Allah morning and evening.
48:10  Those who took your pledge of loyalty, really took Allah’s pledge of loyalty, since Allah’s Hand of power is over their hands. Anyone who breaks his pledge will face dreadful consequences. And whoever fulfils his pledge, He will richly reward him
48:11  The Bedouins who stayed behind in Madinah will come and say to you, “We were busy with our jobs and families, ask Allah to forgive us.” But they say things with their mouths that aren’t from their hearts. Say: “Who can intervene for you if Allah wanted to harm you or to benefit you?” Indeed, Allah is fully aware of what you do.
48:12  You thought the Messenger and the believers will never return to their families, and you were delighted with this thought, and you kept thinking these evil thoughts. You are wicked losers.
48:13  The ones who did not believe in Allah and his Messenger – We have prepared for such disbelievers a blazing Fire.
48:14  Allah has the control of the Heavens and the Earth, and forgives and punishes who He pleases. And Allah is Forgiving, Caring
48:15  Those who stayed behind will say, “When you go somewhere next time which promises rich booty, do let us follow you.” They want to change Allah’s words. Say: “You will never follow us; that is what Allah has told beforehand.” They will say, “You are jealous of us.” They understand very little.
48:16  Tell those Bedouins who stayed behind: “Soon you will be called upon to face people of great prowess in war; you may fight or they may surrender. If you obey, then Allah will give you a wonderful reward, but if you turn away as you turned away before, He will punish you with painful punishment.
48:17  It is not a sin for: the blind, the lame and the sick to stay behind. Anyone who obeys Allah and His Messenger will be admitted into Paradise, beneath which rivers flow, and anyone who turns away will be punished with painful punishment
48:18  Allah was pleased with the believers when they took a pledge of loyalty with you under the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, so He gave them inner peace, and as a reward will give them a victory soon,
48:19  and in the near future they’ll have many rich booties. Allah is Almighty, Wise.
48:20  Allah promised you many rich booties, which you will have in the future. He quickly gave you this victory and protected you from the harm of others, so this becomes a sign of help for the believers and they can be guided on the straight path.
48:21  Many other victories await you are not yet capable of, but Allah has control over them; Allah has power over all things
48:22  Had the disbelievers fought you, they would have turned their backs and fled, then they would have found no protector and helper.
48:23  This was Allah’s practice in the past; truth will succeed and you will never find Allah’s practice changing.
48:24  He stopped them attacking you, and you from attacking them, in the valley of Makkah after giving you capability to conquer them. Allah sees all you do.
48:25  The disbelievers stopped you from entering the Sacred Mosque, and your sacrificial animals from reaching their place of sacrifice. If it were not for the believing men and women in Makkah – about whom you were unaware – you may have trampled them, thereby unwittingly incurring guilt. So Allah may admit in to His kindness who He pleases. Had the believers separated themselves from the Makkans then We would have severely punished the disbelievers
48:26  While stubborn disdain filled the disbelievers’ hearts, their superiority complex, Allah gave inner peace to His Messenger and the believers, and made them firm in the word of Allah-consciousness, which they rightly deserved and were worthy of it. Allah knows all things
48:27  Allah fulfilled His Messenger’s true dream; by the will of Allah, you will enter the Sacred Mosque in peace with your heads shaven or hair trimmed, fearing no one. You don’t know what he knows; soon beside this you will have a near victory.
48:28  He sent His Messenger with guidance and a true religion to override all religions. And Allah is a sufficient witness
48:29  Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are tough with the disbelievers and caring among themselves; you will see them bowing and prostrating, seeking the grace of Allah and His pleasure. They bear marks on their faces, an effect of their prostration. These qualities of theirs are mentioned in the Torah and the Gospels; they are like a seed from which a shoot sprouts. He strengthens it so it rises stout and stands straight on its stem. The sower loves it, but the disbelievers become enraged. Allah promised the believers and the righteous among them forgiveness, and a great reward
