It is absolutely without a doubt that We have granted you a manifest victory
So that Allâh may let the omnipotence of His Mercy shield you from your past and future faults, that He may perfect His favour to you and lead you to a straight path,
And that He may support you with vigorous support.
He is the One Who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the Monotheistic Believers in order to add more Faith to their Faith. Unto Allâh belong the soldiers of the heavens and earth. Allâh is All-knowing, All-wise.
He will definitely admit the Monotheistic Believers, men and women, into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, and therein will they live forever. And He will deliver them from all the consequences of their iniquitous deeds. That is, in the sight of Allâh, the most ultimate success and the supreme one.
And He will chastise the hypocritical men and women, the polytheistic men and women, who speculate evil speculations about Allâh. For them is the evil turn of fortune: the wrath of Allâh abides in them: He has cursed them and prepared Hellfire for them (to live therein forever). Worst indeed is that destination.
Unto Allâh belong the soldiers of the heavens and earth. Allâh is the Almighty, the All-wise.
Verily We have sent you as a witness, as a herald (bringing to the people the glad tidings of how to attain salvation), and as one (giving the people sufficient warning about how to avoid Hellfire),
So that you, (O’ mankind), will believe in Allâh and His Messenger, and honor and respect him, and celebrate His praise declare His glory at the dawn and in the evening.
Indeed, those who swear allegiance to you swear allegiance to Allâh. The hand of Allâh is above their hands. So whoever violates his oath does so only against his own self. And whoever fulfills the covenant which he has made with Allâh, He will bestow on him an immense reward.
The Bedouin Arabs who lagged behind will say to you: “We have been preoccupied with our properties and our family affairs, and so ask (Allâh) for the omnipotence of His Mercy to shield us". They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say: "Who then possesses any power (to interfere) in your behalf with Allâh if He intends to hurt you, or to let you obtain benefit? The Truth is that Allâh is All-Aware of what you do.
Nay, but you speculated that the Messenger and the Monotheistic Believers would never return to their families. And that was decked out fair in your hearts. You speculated evil speculations. And you are a people doomed to perish".
And whoever dose not have Faith in Allâh and His Messenger (needs to know that) We have certainly prepared for those who are spiritually dead and blind a blazing Fire.
Unto Allâh belongs the (absolute) Sovereignty of the heavens and earth. He forgives whom He wills and chastises whom He wills. Allâh is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Those who lagged behind will say: "When you set forth to collect the spoils, let us follow you". They desire to change the Words of Allâh. Say: "You will not follow us. This is what Allâh had said beforehand". Then they will say: "Nay, but you are just envious of us". The truth is that they lack spiritual wisdom and understanding.
Say unto those who lagged behind of the Bedouin Arabs: "You will be called against a people of mighty prowess. You will fight against them until they surrender. So, if you obey, Allâh will give you a good reward. But if you turn away as you did before, He will chastise you with a painful chastisement ".
There will be no fault attached to the blind, or the lame, or the sick. Whoever yields (to the Commandments of) Allâh and (to what He has revealed to) His Messenger, Allâh will admit him into Gardens underneath which rivers flow. Whosoever turns back, He will chastise him with a painful chastisement.
Most certainly Allâh was well pleased with the Monotheistic Believers when they swore allegiance to you beneath the tree. He already knew what was in their hearts, and so He sent down tranquility upon them and rewarded them with an imminent conquest
And great spoils which they will capture. Allâh is the Almighty, the All-Wise.
Allâh has promised you many spoils that you will capture, then He hastened this on for you and restrained the hands of the people from you so that it may be a Sign for the Monotheistic Believers, and that He may guide you into a straight path.
Besides these, there were other gains which were not within your power. Allâh has encompassed them. Allâh is Most Capable of doing whatsoever He wills.
If it happens that those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth fight against you, they will turn around and flee. And they will find no guardian nor a helper.
This is the Law of Allâh which has taken course aforetime. Never will you find in the law of Allâh any change.
It was Allah alone who restrained their hands from you and your hands from them in the valley of Mecca after He had granted you victory over them. Allâh is Ever the All-Seer of whatsoever you do.
They (Quraysh idolaters) are the ones who refused to acknowledge the absolute Oneness of Allâh, hindered you from entering the Sacred Mosque and even debarred your sacrificial animals from reaching their place of sacrifice. Had not been for certain Monotheistic Believers, men and women, whom you did not know, you might have trampled upon them, and thus, something hateful might have afflicted you unwittingly on their account, (We would have permitted you to enter Mecca but We did not allow this) so that Allâh may admit into His Mercy who He wills. If they had been apart (from them), We would have surely chastised those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth among them with a painful torment.
When those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth were motivated by the fervency which abides in their hearts- the fervency of the days of ignorance- Allâh sent down His tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the Monotheistic Believers, and obliged them with the word of unfeigned piety since they were entitled and worthy of it. Allâh is Ever the All-Knowing of all things.
Verily, Allâh made the vision He vouchsafed to His Messenger to come true: You shall certainly enter the Sacred Mosque if Allâh wills, in peace with your heads shaved and hair cut short and without fear. He knew what you did not know, so He has ordained before that a near conquest.
He is the One Who has sent his Messenger with the True Source of Enlightenment, and with the Religion of Truth in order to make it prevail over all religions. Sufficient is Allâh as Witness.
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allâh, and those with him are harsh with those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling prostrating (in prayer) seeking bounty from Allâh, as well as (His) pleasure. Their marks are on their faces from the traces of prostration. That is their likeness in the Torah, and their likeness in the Gospel, a seed that puts forth its sprout, then strengthens it, and it grows stout and rises straight on its stem, delighting the sowers, that He may outrage those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth by them. Allâh has promised those who adhere to absolute monotheism and do righteous acts (in this worldly life), among them, forgiveness and an immense reward.
