Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Ranks, Battle Array(as-Saff)
61:1 Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth (all) glorify Allah. And He is the Lord of Honour and Dominance, Most Wise.
61:2 O believers! Why do you say what you do not do?
61:3 It is most hateful in the sight of Allah that you should say what you do not do.
61:4 Assuredly, Allah loves those who fight in the way of Allah (to eliminate tyranny and terrorism and restore peace and human dignity, so) organized in ranks as if they were a wall cemented with molten lead.
61:5 And, (O Beloved, recall) when Musa (Moses) said to his people: ‘O my people, why do you offend me whilst you know that I am (a Messenger) sent to you by Allah?’ So when they continued deviating, then Allah made their hearts deviate. And Allah does not guide the defiant.
61:6 (And also recall) when ‘Isa, the son of Maryam (Jesus, the son of Mary) said: ‘O Children of Israel, indeed I am (a Messenger) sent to you by Allah, confirming the Torah, the Book which came before me, and bearing the good news of (the pleasant arrival) of (the Esteemed) Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) who will come after me, whose name is Ahmad (now in the heavens).’ But when he (the Last of the Messengers) came to them with clear signs, they said: ‘This is open magic.’
61:7 And who can be a greater wrongdoer than he who invents a lie against Allah whilst he is being invited towards Islam? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoers.
61:8 These (deniers of the truth) desire to put out the Light of Allah by (blowing) with their mouths, whereas Allah will take His Light to perfection, even though the disbelievers may dislike it intensely.
61:9 He is the One Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Din (Religion) of truth so that He may make it dominate and prevail over all other religions, even though the idolaters may hate it much.
61:10 O believers! Shall I advise you a trade which will save you from a painful torment?
61:11 (It is that) you have (perfect) belief in Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) and strive hard for the cause of Allah with your human and material resources. That is better for you if you know.
61:12 He will forgive your sins and will admit you into Gardens with streams flowing under them, and (will make you reside) in excellent dwellings in the Gardens of Eden (i.e., Gardens of Eternity). That is indeed a great success.
61:13 And, (besides this favour in the Hereafter, He will grant you) another (worldly blessing too) which you earnestly desire: (that is) help from Allah and a near victory, and, (O Esteemed Prophet,) give this good news to the believers. (This came about in the form of Meccan Victory and the conquests in Persia and Rome.)
61:14 O believers! Be helpers of Allah as ‘Isa, the son of Maryam (Jesus, the son of Mary) said to (his) disciples: ‘Who are my helpers towards (the path of) Allah?’ The disciples said: ‘We are Allah’s helpers.’ So a party of the Children of Israel believed and a party disbelieved. So We helped the believers against their enemies and they gained the upper hand.
