Malik - Sura: 61. As-Saff - The Ranks

  1. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.

  2. O believers! Why do you say something which you don't do?

  3. It is very hateful in the sight of Allah that you say something which you don't do.

  4. Indeed Allah loves those who fight for His Cause in battle array as if they were a solid wall.

  5. Remember what Musa (Moses) said to his people: "O my people! Why do you vex me while you know that I am the Rasool of Allah towards you?" But inspite of this when they adopted perverseness, Allah let their hearts be perverted. Allah does not guide those who are transgressors.

  6. And remember when Isa (Jesus) the son of Maryam said: "O children of Israel! I am the Rasool of Allah towards you, confirming the Torah which came before me, and to give you good news of a Rasool that will come after me whose name shall be Ahmed (another name of Muhammad, meaning 'The praised one')." But when he (Muhammad) came to them with clear signs, they said "This is plain magic."

  7. Who could be more wrong than the one who invents falsehoods against Allah while he is being called towards Islam? Allah does not guide those who are wrongdoers.

  8. They seek to extinguish the Light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His Light, much as the unbelievers may dislike it.

  9. It is He Who has sent His Rasool with the guidance and the religion of truth so that he may proclaim it over all religions, much as the Mushrikin may dislike it.

  10. O believers! Should I tell you of a bargain that will save you from a painful punishment?

  11. It is to believe in Allah and His Rasool and strive your utmost in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your persons. That is best for you, if you but knew it.

  12. He will forgive you your sins and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow, and will lodge you in beautiful mansions in the gardens of Eden, which will be a supreme achievement.

  13. And yet another blessing which you love: help from Allah and a speedy victory. So O Prophet, give this good news to the believers.

  14. O believers! Be the helpers of Allah, just as Isa (Jesus) the son of Maryam said to his disciples: "Who will be my helper in the cause of Allah?" And the disciples responded: "We will be your helpers in the cause of Allah." Then a group from the children of Israel believed in him (Isa) and another group disbelieved. We aided the believers against their enemies, so they became victorious.
