What is in the heavens and what is on earth glorifies Allah, and He is the mighty and wise.
He is who expelled those who rejected (the truth) from the people of the Book from their homes for a first gathering. You did not think that they would come out, and they thought that their strongholds would keep Allah out, so Allah came to them from where they did not expect and cast fear into their hearts. They destroyed their houses with their own hands and the hands of the believers, so take a lesson oh you who see.
And if Allah had not written expulsion for them, He would have punished them in this world and in the hereafter the punishment of the fire would be theirs.
This is because they break away from Allah and His messenger, and whoever breaks away from Allah, then Allah is severe in punishment.
You did not cut down a tree or leave it standing on its roots but with the permission of Allah and so that He would humiliate the sinful.
And whatever Allah gave to His messenger from them, you did not spur on any horses or camels for it, but Allah gives His messengers control over what He pleases, and Allah is able to do anything.
And whatever Allah gave to His messenger from the inhabitants of the towns, it belongs to Allah and His messenger and the relatives and the orphans and the poor and the traveller, so that it does not just circulate amongst the rich of you, and what the messenger gives you, take it, and what he forbids you, leave it, and beware of Allah, for Allah is severe in punishment.
For the poor of the emigrants who left their homes and wealth to seek favour from Allah and contentment and help Allah and His messenger, those are the truthful.
And those who prepared the home and had faith before they came, loving those who migrated to them and not finding within themselves any desire for what they were given and preferring them over themselves even if they were in poverty, and whoever is protected from the greed of his own soul, those are the successful.
And those who came after them saying: our Lord forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and do not place in our hearts any spite towards those who believe, our Lord, for you are lenient and merciful.
Have you not seen those who pretend, saying to their brothers who reject (the truth) from the people of the Book: if you are expelled, we will migrate with you and we will not obey anybody against you ever, and if you are fought, we will help you, and Allah is a witness that they are liars.
If they are expelled, they do not migrate with them, and if they are fought, they do not help them, and if they were to help them, they would turn their backs, then they will not be helped.
They have more fear in their hearts of you than of Allah, that is because they are people who do not understand.
They will not fight you all out except from fortified towns or from behind walls, their adversity amongst themselves is strong, you think they are together, but their hearts are apart, that is because they are people who do not think.
Like those before them nearby, they tasted the evil outcome of their affairs and a painful punishment is theirs.
Like the devil when he says to man: reject (the truth), then when he rejects (it) he says: I am free of you, for I fear Allah the Lord of all worlds.
So the outcome of both is that they will be forever in the fire, and that is the punishment of the wrongdoers.
Oh you believers, beware of Allah and let each soul mind what it sends ahead for tomorrow, and beware of Allah, for Allah is informed of what you do.
And be not like those who forgot Allah, so He made them forget themselves, those are the sinful.
The inhabitants of the fire and the inhabitants of the garden are not alike, the inhabitants of the garden are the successful.
Had We sent this Qur´an onto a mountain you would see it break down out of fear of Allah, and these are the examples We coin for mankind so that they reflect.
He is Allah the One besides whom there is no god, who knows the unseen and the apparent, He is the owner and giver of mercy.
He is Allah the One besides whom there is no god, the king, the holy, the origin of peace, the safeguard, the controller, the mighty, the compelling, the elevated, glorified is Allah above what they associate.
He is Allah the creator, the originator, the artist, to him belong the most beautiful names, whatever is in the heavens and on earth glorifies Him, and He is the mighty, the wise.
