Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah She That Disputeth, The Pleading Woman, She Who Pleaded(al-Mujadilah)
58:1 Allah has surely listened to what is said by the woman who disputeswith you (Muhammad) concerning her husband, and complains to Allah. And Allah listens to your dialogue. Allah does indeed hear, see everything.
58:2 Those of you who abstain from having conjugal relations with their wives by pronouncing them as their mothers (should know) they are not their mothers. None but those who gave them birth are their mothers. What they utter is most certainly wrong and a lie. And Allah is certainly indeed Lenient, Forgiving.
58:3 And those of you who abstain from having conjugal relations with their wives by pronouncing them as their mothers and afterward would go back on what they said — then freeing of a neck [slave] before they touch each other is what you are exhorted to do! And Allah is aware what you do.
58:4 Then he who finds not (a slave to free), let him fast for two successive months before they [husband and wife] touch each other. And for him who is unable to do so, the feeding of sixty needy persons [is the penance]. This, in order that you may believe in Allah and His Messenger. And this is the Law prescribed by Allah. And for those who suppress the Truth, there is a painful punishment.
58:5 Those indeed who work against Allah and His Messenger will be destroyed as those before them were. And We have surely sent down clear Verses/signs. And for those who suppress the Truth, a disgraceful punishment
58:6 On the Day when Allah will raise them all and give them an account of what they had done. Allah would have recorded it and they would have forgotten it. And Allah is Witness to all things.
58:7 Do you not see that Allah knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth? No three persons confer but He is the Fourth among them, nor five, but He is the Sixth. nor less or more but He is with them wherever they may be. And afterward, on the Day of Resurrection, He will give an account to them of all their deeds. Allah does indeed know all things!
58:8 Have thou not seen those to whom conspiracy was forbidden and who later returned to what they had been forbidden and indulged in conspiracy for crime and hostility and for rebelling against the Messenger? And when they come to you they greet you with a greeting wherewith Allah greets you not, and they say to themselves, "Why should Allah not punish us for what we say?" Hell will suffice them; they will burn therein. It will be an evil destination!
58:9 O you who believe! When you confer in secrecy, confer not for crime and hostility and for rebelling against the Messenger, but confer for righteousness and piety. And fear Allah, unto whom you will be gathered.
58:10 The conspiracy of the Satan is only to cause grief to those who believe; but he can harm them not at all unless by Allah's leave. And in Allah, then, let the believers put their trust.
58:11 O you who believe! When you are asked to make room in assemblies, then do make room. Allah will make room for you. And when asked to rise up, do rise up! Allah will exalt those who believe among you, and those endowed with knowledge, to high ranks. Allah is Aware of what you do.
58:12 O you who believe! When you hold a private talk with the Messenger, give a tax [sadaqah ] before your talk. That is better and purer for you. But if you do not have the means, then Allah is indeed Forgiving, Merciful!
58:13 Are you wary of giving sadaqaat before having private talks with the Messenger? Then, when you give it not and Allah has forgiven you, establish the Prayer and give the Zakaat and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah is Aware of what you do.
58:14 Have you not seen those who befriend a community with whom Allah is angry? They are neither of you nor of them, and they knowingly swear by what is false.
58:15 Allah has prepared a severe punishment for them. What they have been doing is evil indeed!
58:16 They take their oaths as their shelter and turn others away from Allah's Path. So then they shall have a disgraceful punishment.
58:17 Neither their wealth nor their children will be of any avail to them against Allah. They are the ones to inhabit the Fire, therein to abide.
58:18 The Day Allah will resurrect them all, they will swear to Him as they swear to you and think they are standing on something solid. Are they indeed not those who are the liars?
58:19 The Satan has overpowered them and so has caused them forget remembrance of Allah. They are the Satan's party. Is not Satan's party indeed the losers?
58:20 Those who work against Allah and His Messenger, those will be the ones amongst the most humiliated!
58:21 Allah decreed, "I shall verily prevail — I and My Messengers!" Allah is indeed Strong, Omnipotent.
58:22 You will not find any community, believing in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who work against Allah and His Messenger, even though they be their fathers or their sons or their brethren or their [other] relatives. That [community] is such that He has decreed Faith in their minds and has strengthened them with a Spirit from Him. And He will admit them into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide. Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. Those are the ones in Allah's Party. Is it not members of Allah's Party that indeed are successful?
