61:1  Whatever is of Heaven and Earth, glorify Allah! He is the Almighty, the Wise.
61:2  O Believers, why make false claims?
61:3  It is despicable in the sight of Allah that you make false claims.
61:4  Truly, Allah loves those who truly struggle for His cause in battle formation as if they were of one mind.
61:5  Remember that Moses said to his people, “O my people, why do you persecute me even though you know that I am the messenger of Allah for you?” When they strayed, Allah allowed their hearts to stray because Allah does not guide rebellious sinners.
61:6  Remember that Jesus the son of Mary said, “O Children of Israel, I am truly the messenger of Allah for you. [I am] confirming the Torah previously given and bearing the good news of a messenger to come after me. His name will be Ahmed [‘the praised one’].” But when he came to them with evidence [miracles], they said, “This is obviously magic.”
61:7  Who does greater wrong than someone who invents a lie against Allah even as he/she is being invited to Islam? Allah does not guide those who do wrong.
61:8  Their intention is to extinguish Allah’s light with their mouths. But Allah will perfect His light no matter how the unbelievers hate it.
61:9  It is He who has sent His messenger with guidance and the religion of truth so he may proclaim it above other religions no matter how the idolaters hate it.
61:10  O Believers, shall I guide you to a bargain that will save you from a painful torment?
61:11  Believe in Allah and His messenger and struggle in the purpose of Allah, risking your possessions as well as your lives. That would be to your advantage. If you could only imagine!
61:12  He will forgive your sins and allow you to enter Paradise beneath which rivers flow and into elegant mansions in the gardens of eternity. That is the supreme achievement.
61:13  You will get something else to cherish: help from Allah and a speedy victory [over your trials]. So give the good news to believers.
61:14  O Believers, be helpers for Allah in the manner that Jesus son of Mary invited his disciples, “Who will be my helpers for Allah?” The disciples said, “We are Allah’s helpers.” Some of the Children of Israel believed, and some disbelieved. We empowered the believers against their enemies, and they prevailed.
