Surah 47 - Muhammad
In the Name
of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
for) those who disbelieve and turn away from Allah's way, He shall render their works
(as for) those who believe and do good, and believe in what has been revealed to Muhammad,
and it is the very truth from their Lord, He will remove their evil from them and improve
is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood, and those who believe follow the truth
from their Lord; thus does Allah set forth to men their examples.
when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have
overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor
or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah
had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try
some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He
will by no means allow their deeds to perish.
will guide them and improve their condition.
cause them to enter the garden which He has made known to them.
[47.7] O you
who believe! if you help (the cause of) Allah, He will help you and make firm your feet.
(as for) those who disbelieve, for them is destruction and He has made their deeds
is because they hated what Allah revealed, so He rendered their deeds null.
they not then journeyed in the land and seen how was the end of those before them: Allah
brought down destruction upon them, and the unbelievers shall have the like of it.
is because Allah is the Protector of those who believe, and because the unbelievers shall
have no protector for them.
Surely Allah will make those who believe and do good enter gardens beneath which rivers
flow; and those who disbelieve enjoy themselves and eat as the beasts eat, and the fire is
how many a town which was far more powerful than the town of yours which has driven you
out: We destroyed them so there was no helper for them.
What! is he who has a clear argument from his Lord like him to whom the evil of his work
is made fair seeming: and they follow their low desires.
parable of the garden which those guarding (against evil) are promised: Therein are rivers
of water that does not alter, and rivers of milk the taste whereof does not change, and
rivers of drink delicious to those who drink, and rivers of honey clarified and for them
therein are all fruits and protection from their Lord. (Are these) like those who abide in
the fire and who are made to drink boiling water so it rends their bowels asunder.
there are those of them who seek to listen to you, until when they go forth from you, they
say to those who have been given the knowledge: What was it that he said just now? These
are they upon whose hearts Allah has set a seal and they follow their low desires.
(as for) those who follow the right direction, He increases them in guidance and gives
them their guarding (against evil).
they then wait for aught but the hour that it should come to them all of a sudden? Now
indeed the tokens of it have (already) come, but how shall they have their reminder when
it comes on them?
know that there is no god but Allah, and, ask protection for your fault and for the
believing men and the believing women; and Allah knows the place of your returning and the
place of your abiding.
those who believe say: Why has not a chapter been revealed? But when a decisive chapter is
revealed, and fighting is mentioned therein you see those in whose hearts is a disease
look to you with the look of one fainting because of death. Woe to them then!
Obedience and a gentle word (was proper); but when the affair becomes settled, then if
they remain true to Allah it would certainly be better for them.
if you held command, you were sure to make mischief in the land and cut off the ties of
Those it is whom Allah has cursed so He has made them deaf and blinded their eyes.
they not then reflect on the Quran? Nay, on the hearts there are locks.
Surely (as for) those who return on their backs after that guidance has become manifest to
them, the Shaitan has made it a light matter to them; and He gives them respite.
is because they say to those who hate what Allah has revealed: We will obey you in some of
the affairs; and Allah knows their secrets.
how will it be when the angels cause them to die smiting their backs.
is because they follow what is displeasing to Allah and are averse to His pleasure,
therefore He has made null their deeds.
do those in whose hearts is a disease think that Allah will not bring forth their spite?
if We please We would have made you know them so that you would certainly have recognized
them by their marks and most certainly you can recognize them by the intent of (their)
speech; and Allah knows your deeds.
most certainly We will try you until We have known those among you who exert themselves
hard, and the patient, and made your case manifest.
Surely those who disbelieve and turn away from Allah's way and oppose the Apostle after
that guidance has become clear to them cannot harm Allah in any way, and He will make null
you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle, and do not make your deeds of no effect.
Surely those who disbelieve and turn away from Allah's way, then they die while they are
unbelievers, Allah will by no means forgive them.
be not slack so as to cry for peace and you have the upper hand, and Allah is with you,
and He will not bring your deeds to naught.
life of this world is only idle sport and play, and if you believe and guard (against
evil) He will give you your rewards, and will not ask of you your possessions.
He should ask you for it and urge you, you will be niggardly, and He will bring forth your
Behold! you are those who are called upon to spend in Allah's way, but among you are those
who are niggardly, and whoever is niggardly is niggardly against his own soul; and Allah
is Self-sufficient and you have need (of Him), and if you turn back He will bring in your
place another people, then they will not be like you.
