61:1  Whatever that lies in the heavens and whatever that lies in the earth glorifies Allah, for He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise
61:2  O you who believe! why should you say what you do not do
61:3  It is very hateful in the sight of Allah that you should profess what you do not practise
61:4  Indeed, Allah loves those who fight in His cause in compact ranks (so arrayed) as if they were a solid structure cemented with (molten) lead
61:5  (Recall the time) when Moses said to his people, `My people! why do you malign me when you know that I am certainly a Messenger from Allah to you.' But when they deviated from the right course, Allah let their hearts deviate (as they were), for Allah guides no transgressing people to success
61:6  And (recall the time) when Jesus, son of Mary, said, `O Children of Israel! surely I am a Messenger sent to you by Allah fulfilling (the prophecies contained in) the Torah which preceded me and pronouncing the good news of (the advent of) a great Messenger named Ahmad, who will come after me.' But when he (- the Prophet Muhammad) came to them with clear proofs, they said, `His are the enchanting ways separating (us from our people).
61:7  But who is more unjust than he (who believes in the trinity of God), who forges a lie in the name of Allah (by calling Jesus the son of God), while he is called (to join the fold of Islam). And Allah guides no unjust people to the ways of success
61:8  They desire to extinguish the light of Allah with (the breath of) their mouths. But Allah will perfect His light even though the disbelievers consider it hard
61:9  It is He Who sent His Messenger with (the source of) guidance and true lasting faith, that he may help it prevail over all other faith, even though the polytheists consider it difficult
61:10  O you who believe! shall I direct you to a bargain that will save you from a woeful punishment
61:11  (The bargain is that) keep your faith in Allah and His Messenger and keep on striving hard in the cause of Allah with your possessions and your persons. That would be best for you if only you realise
61:12  He will protect you against the evil consequences of your sins and admit you into Gardens served with running streams and (into) delightful and pure dwelling places (lying) in the Gardens of Eternity. This is the (way to) supreme achievement
61:13  And (He will confer upon you ) yet another (favour) which you love. (It is the) help from Allah and an early victory (that you will win in this very world). So give glad tidings (of it) to the believers
61:14  O you who believe! be helpers of (the cause of) Allah (as did the disciples of Jesus), for when Jesus, son of Mary, said to the disciples, `Who will join me as my helper towards (the cause of) Allah?' The disciples replied, `We are helpers of (the cause of) Allah.' So a section of the Children of the Israel believed (firmly in Jesus), while another section rejected (him). Thereupon We helped those who believed, against their enemies and (at last) these (believers) gained predominant victory (over the nonbelievers)
