PICKTHAL: When the hypocrites come unto thee (O Muhammad), they say: We
bear witness that thou art indeed Allah's messenger. And Allah knoweth that
thou art indeed His messenger, and Allah beareth witness that the
hypocrites indeed are speaking falsely.

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

063.002

PICKTHAL: They make their faith a pretext so that they may turn (men) from
the way of Allah. Verily evil is that which they are wont to do,

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

063.003

PICKTHAL: That is because they believed, then disbelieved, therefore their
hearts are sealed so that they understand not.

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

063.004

PICKTHAL: And when thou seest them their figures please thee; and if they
speak thou givest ear unto their speech. (They are) as though they were
blocks of wood in striped cloaks. They deem every shout to be against them.
They are the enemy, so beware of them. Allah confound them! How they are
perverted!

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

063.005

PICKTHAL: And when it is said unto them: Come! The messenger of Allah will
ask forgiveness for you! they avert their faces and thou seest them turning
away, disdainful.

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

063.006

PICKTHAL: Whether thou ask forgiveness for them or ask not forgiveness for
them is all one for them; Allah will not forgive them. Lo! Allah guideth
not the evil-living folk.

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

063.007

PICKTHAL: They it is who say: Spend not on behalf of those (who dwell) with
Allah's messenger that they may disperse (and go away from you); when
Allah's are the treasures of the heavens and the earth; but the hypocrites
comprehend not.

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

063.008

PICKTHAL: They say: Surely, if we return to Al-Madinah the mightier will
soon drive out the weaker; when might belongeth to Allah and to His
messenger and to the believers; but the hypocrites know not.

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

063.009

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Let not your wealth nor your children distract
you from remembrance of Allah. Those who do so, they are the losers.

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

063.010

PICKTHAL: And spend of that wherewith We have provided you before death
cometh unto one of you and he saith: My Lord! If only thou wouldst reprieve
me for a little while, then I would give alms and be among the righteous.

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

063.011

PICKTHAL: But Allah reprieveth no soul when its term cometh, and Allah is
Informed of what ye do.
