          In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.001

PICKTHAL: Allah hath heard the saying of her that disputeth with thee
(Muhammad) concerning her husband, and complaineth unto Allah. And Allah
heareth your colloquy. Lo! Allah is Hearer, Knower.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.002

PICKTHAL: Such of you as put away your wives (by saying they are as their
mothers) - They are not their mothers; none are their mothers except those
who gave them birth - they indeed utter an ill word and a lie. And lo!
Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.003

PICKTHAL: Those who put away their wives (by saying they are as their
mothers) and afterward would go back on that which they have said, (the
penalty) in that case (is) the freeing of a slave before they touch one
another. Unto this ye are exhorted; and Allah is Informed of what ye do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.004

PICKTHAL: And he who findeth not (the wherewithal), let him fast for two
successive months before they touch one another; and for him who is unable
to do so (the penance is) the feeding of sixty needy ones. This, that ye
may put trust in Allah and His messenger. Such are the limits (imposed by
Allah); and for disbelievers is a painful doom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.005

PICKTHAL: Lo! those who oppose Allah and His messenger will be abased even
as those before them were abased; and We have sent down clear tokens, and
for disbelievers is a shameful doom

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.006

PICKTHAL: On the day when Allah will raise them all together and inform
them of what they did. Allah hath kept account of it while they forgot it.
And Allah is Witness over all things.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.007

PICKTHAL: Hast thou not seen that Allah knoweth all that is in the heavens
and all that is in the earth? There is no secret conference of three but He
is their fourth, nor of five but He is their sixth, nor of less than that
or more but He is with them wheresoever they may be; and afterward, on the
Day of Resurrection, He will inform them of what they did. Lo! Allah is
Knower of all things.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.008

PICKTHAL: Hast thou not observed those who were forbidden conspiracy and
afterward returned to that which they had been forbidden, and (now)
conspire together for crime and wrongdoing and disobedience toward the
messenger? And when they come unto thee they greet thee with a greeting
wherewith Allah greeteth thee not, and say within themselves: Why should
Allah punish us for what we say? Hell will suffice them; they will feel the
heat thereof - a hapless journey's end!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.009

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! When ye conspire together, conspire not
together for crime and wrongdoing and disobedience toward the messenger,
but conspire together for righteousness and piety, and keep your duty
toward Allah, unto whom ye will be gathered.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.010

PICKTHAL: Lo! Conspiracy is only of the devil, that he may vex those who
believe; but he can harm them not at all unless by Allah's leave. In Allah
let believers put their trust.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.011

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! when it is said unto you, Make room! in
assemblies, then make room; Allah will make way for you (hereafter). And
when it is said, Come up higher! go up higher; Allah will exalt those who
believe among you, and those who have knowledge, to high ranks. Allah is
Informed of what ye do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.012

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! When ye hold conference with the messenger,
offer an alms before your conference. That is better and purer for you. But
if ye cannot find (the wherewithal) then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.013

PICKTHAL: Fear ye to offer alms before your conference? Then, when ye do it
not and Allah hath forgiven you, establish worship and pay the poor-due and
obey Allah and His messenger. And Allah is Aware of what ye do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.014

PICKTHAL: Hast thou not seen those who take for friends a folk with whom
Allah is wroth? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear a false
oath knowingly.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.015

PICKTHAL: Allah hath prepared for them a dreadful doom. Evil indeed is that
which they are wont to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.016

PICKTHAL: They make a shelter of their oaths and turn (men) from the way of
Allah; so theirs will be a shameful doom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.017

PICKTHAL: Their wealth and their children will avail them naught against
Allah. Such are rightful owners of the Fire; they will abide therein.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.018

PICKTHAL: On the day when Allah will raise them all together, then will
they swear unto Him as they (now) swear unto you, and they will fancy that
they have some standing. Lo! is it not they who are the liars?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.019

PICKTHAL: The devil hath engrossed them and so hath caused them to forget
remembrance of Allah. They are the devil's party. Lo! is it not the devil's
party who will be the losers?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.020

PICKTHAL: Lo! those who oppose Allah and His messenger, they will be among
the lowest.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.021

PICKTHAL: Allah hath decreed: Lo! I verily shall conquer, I and My
messengers. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

058.022

PICKTHAL: Thou wilt not find folk who believe in Allah and the Last Day
loving those who oppose Allah and His messenger, even though they be their
fathers or their sons or their brethren or their clan. As for such, He hath
written faith upon their hearts and hath strengthened them with a Spirit
from Him, and He will bring them into Gardens underneath which rivers flow,
wherein they will abide. Allah is well pleased with them, and they are well
pleased with Him. They are Allah's party. Lo! is it not Allah's party who
are the successful?
