Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Section/Ruku 3 [Verses 20 to 28]: The weak-hearted ones:
Chapter 47: (Muhammad)
(Revealed at Madinah: 4 sections; 38 verses)

1. Translation:

20 And those who believe say: Why is not a chapter revealed?
a But when a decisive chapter is revealed, and fighting is mentioned therein, thou seest those in whose hearts is a disease look to thee with the look of one fainting at death. So woe to them!

21 Obedience and a gentle word (was proper). Then when the affair is settled, it is better for them if they remain true to Allah.

22 But if you turn away, you are sure to make mischief in the land and cut off the ties of kinship!a

23 Those it is whom Allah has cursed, so He has made them deaf and blinded their eyes.a

24 Do they not reflect on the Qur’an? Or, are there locks on the hearts?

25 Surely those who turn back after guidance is manifest to them, the devil embellishes it for them; and lengthens false hopes for them.

26 That is because they say to those who hate what Allah has revealed: We will obey you in some matters. And Allah knows their secrets.

27 But how will it be when the angels cause them to die, smiting their faces and their backs?

28 That is because they follow that which displeases Allah and are averse to His pleasure, so He makes their deeds fruitless.

2. Commentary:

20a. The Muslims had been persecuted beyond all measure; they had been oppressed, slain and turned out of their homes. Hence they naturally desired to be allowed to defend themselves. By a chapter is meant a revelation allowing them to fight. [Back to verse 20]

22a. It is the hypocrites who are addressed in these words. Tawallai-tum may mean either that you turn your backs on the Divine commandment to fight in defence of Truth or that you are put in authority. [Back to verse 22]

23a. Note that Allah blinds the eyes of and makes deaf those who would not turn to the right way. The next verse makes it clear by saying that they do not reflect on the Qur’an, as if there were locks on their hearts. [Back to verse 23]
