PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Choose not My enemy and your enemy for allies.
Do ye give them friendship when they disbelieve in that truth which hath
come unto you, driving out the messenger and you because ye believe in
Allah, your Lord? If ye have come forth to strive in My way and seeking My
good pleasure, (show them not friendship). Do ye show friendship unto them
in secret, when I am Best Aware of what ye hide and what ye proclaim? And
whosoever doeth it among you, he verily hath strayed from the right way.

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

060.002

PICKTHAL: If they have the upper hand of you, they will be your foes, and
will stretch out their hands and their tongues toward you with evil
(intent), and they long for you to disbelieve.

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

060.003

PICKTHAL: Your ties of kindred and your children will avail you naught upon
the Day of Resurrection. He will part you. Allah is Seer of what ye do.

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

PICKTHAL: There is a goodly pattern for you in Abraham and those with him,
when they told their folk: Lo! we are guiltless of you and all that ye
worship beside Allah. We have done with you. And there hath arisen between
us and you hostility and hate for ever until ye believe in Allah only -
save that which Abraham promised his father (when he said): I will ask
forgiveness for thee, though I own nothing for thee from Allah - Our Lord!
In Thee we put our trust, and unto Thee we turn repentant, and unto Thee is
the journeying.

believe in Allah alone-- but not in what Ibrahim said to his father: I
would certainly ask forgiveness for you, and I do not control for you aught
from Allah-- Our Lord! on Thee do we rely, and to Thee do we turn, and to
Thee is the eventual coming:

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

060.005

PICKTHAL: Our Lord! Make us not a prey for those who disbelieve, and
forgive us, our Lord! Lo! Thou, only Thou, are the Mighty, the Wise.

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

060.006

PICKTHAL: Verily ye have in them a goodly pattern for everyone who looketh
to Allah and the Last Day. And whosoever may turn away, lo! still Allah, He
is the Absolute, the Owner of Praise.

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

060.007

PICKTHAL: It may be that Allah will ordain love between you and those of
them with whom ye are at enmity. Allah is Mighty, and Allah is Forgiving,
Merciful.

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

060.008

PICKTHAL: Allah forbiddeth you not those who warred not against you on
account of religion and drove you not out from your homes, that ye should
show them kindness and deal justly with them. Lo! Allah loveth the just
dealers.

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

060.009

PICKTHAL: Allah forbiddeth you only those who warred against you on account
of religion and have driven you out from your homes and helped to drive you
out, that ye make friends of them. Whosoever maketh friends of them - (All)
such are wrong-doers.

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

060.010

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! When believing women come unto you as
fugitives, examine them. Allah is Best Aware of their faith. Then, if ye
know them for true believers, send them not back unto the disbelievers.
They are not lawful for them (the disbelievers), nor are they (the
disbelievers) lawful for them. And give them (the disbelievers) that which
they have spent (upon them). And it is no sin for you to marry such women
when ye have given them their dues. And hold not to the ties of
disbelieving women; and ask for (the return of) that which ye have spent;
and let them (the disbelievers) ask for that which they have spent. That is
the judgment of Allah. He judgeth between you. Allah is Knower, Wise.

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

060.011

PICKTHAL: And if any of your wives have gone from you unto the disbelievers
and afterward ye have your turn (of triumph), then give unto those whose
wives have gone the like of that which they have spent, and keep your duty
to Allah in Whom ye are believers.

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

060.012

PICKTHAL: O Prophet! If believing women come unto thee, taking oath of
allegiance unto thee that they will ascribe no thing as partner unto Allah,
and will neither steal nor commit adultery nor kill their children, nor
produce any lie that they have devised between their hands and feet, nor
disobey thee in what is right, then accept their allegiance and ask Allah
to forgive them. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

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

060.013

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Be not friendly with a folk with whom Allah is
wroth, (a folk) who have despaired of the Hereafter as the disbelievers
despair of those who are in the graves.
