60:1  O you who believe! Do not take My enemies — and your enemies — as close friends, treating them with affection. And they are bent on suppressing whatever Truth that has come to you. [And] they have driven the Messenger and you yourselves away, because you believe in Allah, your Lord! If you have set out to strive in My cause, seeking My pleasure, [then do not take them for your friends,] inclining affectionately towards them! And I am aware of what you conceal and of what you declare. And any of you who has done this [inclining affectionately towards enemies of Allah] — then he has surely strayed from the Right Path
60:2  If they gain an upper hand over you, they would become your [open] foes. And they would stretch their hands and their tongues against you with evil intent. And they wish you to suppress the Truth
60:3  Neither your relatives nor your children will be of any benefit to you on Resurrection Day. Allah will decide matters in between you. And He sees all that you do
60:4  You did surely have a good example in Abraham and those who followed him, when they said to their people, "We have indeed nothing to do with you and with what you worship besides Allah. We renounce you. And between us and you enmity and hatred has arisen, to last until such a time as you come to believe in Allah, the One and Only! — Abraham's saying to his father, `I shall indeed pray for Allah's forgiveness for you, and I have it not in my power to obtain anything from Allah for you' being an exception — Our Lord! In You do we trust, and to You do we turn, and to You is the journey's end!"
60:5  "Our Lord! Make us not an object of trial for those who suppress the Truth. And forgive us our sins, our Lord! You indeed are Omnipotent, Wise!"
60:6  In them [Abraham and his companions], indeed, you have a good example for everyone who looks forward to Allah and the Last Day. And any, who turns away [from this divine admonition], [should know that] Allah is the One Self-sufficient, the One Praiseworthy."
60:7  It may well be that Allah will bring about affection between you [believers] and some of those whom you [now] are on inimical terms with. And, Allah has all the power! And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful
60:8  Allah does not forbid you from showing kindness to and from behaving with full equity towards those [of the non-believers] as do not fight against you because of [your] faith, nor drive you out from your homelands. Allah does indeed love those who act equitably
60:9  Allah forbids you from getting close in friendship only with such as fight against you because of [your] faith, and drive you out, and aid and abet in driving you out, from your homelands. And those [among you] who lean towards them in friendship — those then are the wicked ones
60:10  O you who believe! When believing women — Allah knows how good (or bad) their belief is — come to you as refugees, put them to a test. And if you have thus ascertained that they are believers, return them not to the suppressors of the Truth. These [the refugee women] are not lawful to the non-believers, nor are the latter lawful to the former. And return to them [the non-believers] what they had spent [on their former wives by way of mehr or obligatory marriage gift]. And you will be committing no sin if you then marry them after giving them their mehr. And hold not to the marriage-tie with women who continue to suppress the truth, and you may ask for the return of mehr you had spent on them. And, certainly, the non- believers [whose wives have come over to you] have the right to demand the mehr they had spent. That is Allah's Decree! He decrees on matters between you. And Allah knows all; He is wise
60:11  And if you lose anything, from your dues, to the suppressors of the Truth, then, as and when you get the opportunity, give to those whose wives have gone away the equivalent of what they had spent [on their wives by way of mehr]. And fear Allah, in whom you believe
60:12  O Prophet! Whenever believing women come to you to pledge to you that they would worship none but Allah, and would not steal, and would not commit adultery, and would not kill their children, and would not indulge in any falsehood devised between their hands and their feet [self-devised], and would not disobey you in doing what is right, then accept their pledge of allegiance, and pray to Allah to forgive them. Allah is indeed Forgiving, Merciful
60:13  O you who believe! Lean not in friendship towards people who have incurred Allah's wrath! They have no hopes at all in a life to come in the Hereafter just as the suppressors of the Truth from among those in the graves have no hopes of that life
