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 14 to 22]: Internal enemy to be guarded against:
Chapter 58: (Al-Mujadilah: The Pleading Woman)
(Revealed at Madinah: 3 sections; 22 verses)

1. Translation:

14 Hast thou not seen those who take for friends a people with whom Allah is wroth? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear falsely, while they know.
a

15 Allah has prepared for them a severe chastisement. Evil indeed is that which they do!

16 They take shelter under their oaths, so they turn (men) from Allah’s way; for them is an abasing chastisement.

17 Of no avail against Allah, will be to them their wealth or their children. They are the companions of the Fire; therein they will abide.a

18 On the day when Allah will raise them all up, they will swear to Him as they swear to you, and they think that they have some (excuse). Now surely they are the liars.

19 The devil has gained the mastery over them, so he has made them forget the remembrance of Allah. They are the devil’s party. Now surely the devil’s party are the losers.

20 Those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, they shall be among the most abased.

21 Allah has written down: I shall certainly prevail, I and My messengers. Surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.a

22 Thou wilt not find a people who believe in Allah and the latter daya loving those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even though they be their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kinsfolk.b These are they into whose hearts He has impressed faith, and strengthened them with a Spirit from Himself, and He will cause them to enter Gardens wherein flow rivers, abiding therein. Allah is well-pleased with them and they are well-pleased with Him. These are Allah’s party. Now surely it is Allah’s party who are the successful!

 2. Commentary:

14a. It is evident that the people with whom Allah is wroth are the Jews, because it is of them that the Holy Qur’an says again and again that they earned Allah’s wrath, and the people who took them for friends were the hypocrites. [Back to verse 14]

17a. The prophecy relating to the punishment of both the Jews and the hypocrites was fulfilled in the Prophet’s lifetime. [Back to verse 17]

21a. Note the certain conviction of the final triumph of Truth, which is expressed here. The next verse concludes with similar words: Surely it is Allah’s party who are the successful. [Back to verse 21]

22a. The Muslims are thus the people who believe in Allah and the latter day. [Back to verse 22]

22b. In a state of war between the two parties, friendly relations with the hostile tribes were prohibited, and these would have resulted in great harm to the weaker community of the Muslims. As to those who were not actually engaged in hostilities against the Muslims, see the express directions contained in 60:8. [Back to verse 22]
