60:1  Believers, don’t take as allies those who are Mine and your enemies. How can you fondly send reports about Muslims to them? Yet they disbelieved the truth that came to you; they expelled the Messenger and you because you believed in Allah, your Lord. If you truly emigrated in My path seeking My pleasure, then how can you correspond secretly with them? I know well what you have concealed and what you have revealed. Whoever did so has lost the straight path.
60:2  If they could suppress you, they would be your bitter enemies who would stretch out their hands and tongues to destroy you, and they wish you would disbelieve.
60:3  Neither your relatives nor your children will benefit you on Judgement Day. There, Allah will separate you out. Allah sees what you do
60:4  There is a beautiful role model for you in Ibrahim and those with him; when they said to their people, “We disown you and those you worship beside Allah; we reject you; there will be hostility and hatred between us until you believe in Allah alone.” Except for what Ibrahim said to his father: “I will seek forgiveness for you, although I can’t protect you from Allah in the slightest. Our Lord, we rely on You, and we turn devoutly to You, and the final return is to You
60:5  Our Lord, do not make us a prey for the disbelievers; forgive us our Lord. Our Lord, You are the Almighty, the Wise.”
60:6  What a beautiful role model they are for you and in fact for anyone who hopes to meet Allah on the Last Day. Anyone turning away should know Allah is Self-Sufficient, Praiseworthy
60:7  Allah will make friendship between you and your current enemies one day; Allah is Powerful, Forgiving, Caring.
60:8  Allah does not forbid you from being good and just to those who have not fought against you due to religion, nor expelled you from your houses. Allah loves the just people.
60:9  However, Allah does forbid you from befriending those who fought against you due to religion, expelled you from your houses and helped to drive you out of Makkah. Those who befriend them are wrong
60:10  Believers, when believing migrant women come to you, investigate them. Allah knows well their faith. If you find them to be believers, then don’t return them to the disbelievers. Neither are they lawful for them, nor believing women lawful for them. Give the disbelievers what they have spent on them. There would be nothing wrong if you were to marry them after giving their bridal gift. You should not hold on to marriage ties with disbelieving women; ask for what you have spent on them, just as the Makkan disbelievers will ask for what they have spent on them. That is Allah’s judgement. Allah makes fair judgements between you, and Allah is the Knower, the Wise
60:11  If any of your wives went back to the disbelievers in Makkah, and afterwards you gained victory over them, pay those whose wives fled the equivalent of the bridal gift they had given them. Fear Allah, the One you believe
60:12  Prophet! When believing women come to you to take an oath of allegiance, accept their oath: they will not associate any partner with Allah, nor steal, nor commit adultery, nor murder their children, nor lie about who has fathered their children, nor disobey you in common good. And seek Allah’s forgiveness for them. Allah is the Forgiving, the Caring.
60:13  Believers, don’t befriend a people with whom Allah was angry; they are hopeless of success in the Hereafter, just like the disbelievers are hopeless about the dead people in the graves
