Hamid S. Aziz - Sura: 61. As-Saff - The Ranks

  1. Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth declares the glory of Allah; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

  2. O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do?

  3. It is most hateful to Allah that you should say that which you do not do.

  4. Surely Allah loves those who fight (or strive) in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall.

  5. And when Moses said to his people, "O my people! Why do you vex me, though you know that I am the Messenger of Allah to you?" But when they turned away, Allah made their heart go astray, and Allah does not guide transgressing people.

  6. And when Jesus son of Mary said, "O children of Israel! Surely I am the messenger of Allah to you, verifying that which is before me in the Torah and giving the Good News (Gospel) of a Messenger who will come after me, his name being Ahmad." But when he came to them with clear arguments they said, "This is clear sorcery."

  7. And who does greater wrong (or is more unjust) than he who forges a lie against Allah when he is invited to the Surrender (Islam), and Allah does not guide the unjust people.

  8. They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, though the unbelievers may be averse.

  9. He it is Who sent His Messenger with the guidance and the Religion of Truth, that He may make it overcome all religions, though the polytheists may be averse.

  10. O you who believe! Shall I lead you to an affair (or a transaction) which may deliver you from a painful doom?

  11. You shall believe in Allah and His Messenger, and strive hard in Allah´s way with your property and your lives; that is better for you, did you but know!

  12. He will forgive you your faults and cause you to enter into Gardens, beneath which rivers flow, and goodly Mansions in Gardens of Eternity; that is the supreme achievement (or triumph);

  13. And yet another blessing (will He bestow) that you love: - help from Allah and a speedy victory; so give good news to the believers.

  14. O you who believe! Be helpers of Allah, as Jesus son of Mary said to his disciples, "Who are my helpers of Allah?" The disciples said, "We are helpers of Allah." So a party of the children of Israel believed and another party disbelieved; then We strengthened those who believed against their enemy, and they prevailed (or became the uppermost).
