The Line – As-Saff
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
[61.1] All that is in the heavens and earth exalt Allah. He is the Almighty, the Wise.
[61.2] Believers, why do you say what you never do?
[61.3] It is most hateful to Allah that you should say that which you do not do.
[61.4] Allah loves those who fight in His Way lining up as if they were a stacked building.
[61.5] And when Moses, said to his nation: ‘Why do you harm me, when you know that I am the Messenger of Allah sent to you?’ But when they swerved away Allah caused their hearts to swerve. Allah never guides impious people.
[61.6] And when (Prophet) Jesus, the son of Mary said: ‘Children of Israel, I am sent to you by Allah to confirm the Torah that was before me, and to give news of a Messenger (Prophet Muhammad) who will come after me whose name shall be Ahmad.’ Yet when he came to them with clear proofs, they said: ‘This is clear sorcery.’
[61.7] And who does greater evil than he who forges a lie against Allah, when he is being called to Islam? Allah does not guide the harm-doing people.
[61.8] They seek to extinguish the Light of Allah with their mouths; but Allah will complete His Light, much as the unbelievers dislike it.
[61.9] It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, so that He raises it above all religions, much as the unbelievers dislike it.
[61.10] Believers! Shall I direct you to a commerce that will save you from a painful punishment?
[61.11] You shall believe in Allah and His Messenger and struggle for His Way with your possessions and yourselves. That is better for you, if you but knew.
[61.12] He will forgive you your sins and admit you to Gardens underneath which rivers flow, and to fine dwelling places in the Gardens of Eden. That is the mighty triumph.
[61.13] And other things that you love, victory from Allah and an opening that is near. (O Prophet Muhammad) give glad tidings to the believers.
[61.14] Believers, be the helpers of Allah. When (Prophet) Jesus, the son of Mary said to the disciples: ‘Who will be my helpers unto Allah?’ The disciples replied: ‘We will be the helpers of Allah.’ A party of the Children of Israel believed, and a party disbelieved. So, We supported those who believed against their enemy, and they overcame.

Friday – Al-Jumu’ah
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
[62.1] All that is in heavens and earth exalt Allah, the King, the Pure, the Almighty, the Wise.
[62.2] It is He who has raised among the illiterate (Arabs), a Messenger from themselves, to recite to them His verses, to purify them, and to teach them the Book and the Wisdom, though before that they were in clear error,
[62.3] together with others who have not as yet joined them. He is the Almighty, the Wise.
[62.4] Such is the Favor of Allah; He gives it to whom He will, and Allah is of abounding favors.
[62.5] The likeness of those who were loaded with the Torah, but did not carry it, is like that of a donkey carrying books. Evil is the example of the people who have belied the verses of Allah. Allah does not guide the evildoers.
[62.6] Say: ‘O you who are Jews, if you claim that of all people, you alone are the guided by Allah, then long for death if you are truthful!’
[62.7] But, because of what their hands forwarded they will never long for it. Allah knows the harmdoers.
[62.8] Say: ‘Death from which you flee is sure to reach you. Then you shall be returned to the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible, and He will tell you all that you have done.’
[62.9] Believers, when you are called to prayer on the Day of the Congregation (Friday), hasten to the Remembrance of Allah and put your trading to one-side. That is the best for you, if you but knew.
[62.10] Then, when the prayer has ended, disperse in the land and seek the favor of Allah, and, remember Allah often, so that you prosper.
[62.11] Yet when they see some commerce or amusement they flock to it, leaving you standing. Say: ‘That which is with Allah is better than the amusement and commerce. Allah is the Best of Providers.’

The Hypocrites – Al-Munafikoon
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
[63.1] When the hypocrites come to you they say: ‘We bear witness that you are the Messenger of Allah.’ Allah knows that you (Prophet Muhammad) are indeed His Messenger, and Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are truly liars!
[63.2] They have taken their oaths as a cover and barred others from the Path of Allah. Evil is what they have done.
[63.3] That is because they believed, then disbelieved, because of this a seal has been set upon their hearts so they are unable to understand.
[63.4] When you see them their bodies please you, but when they speak and you listen to their sayings, they are like propped-up timber. Every shout (they hear) they take it to be against them. They are the enemy – be wary of them. Allah kills them! How perverse they are!
[63.5] When it is said to them: ‘Come, the Messenger of Allah will ask forgiveness for you,’ they turn their heads in pride and you see them go away.
[63.6] It is equal for them whether you ask for their forgiveness or you do not ask for their forgiveness, Allah will not forgive them. Allah does not guide the evildoers.
[63.7] It is they that say: ‘Spend nothing on those who follow the Messenger of Allah until they disperse.’ Yet to Allah belong the treasuries of heavens and the earth, but the hypocrites do not understand.
[63.8] They say: ‘If we return to the City, the strong will expel the humiliated.’ But the might belongs to Allah, and His Messenger and the believers, but the hypocrites do not know.
[63.9] Believers, do not let either your possessions or your children divert you from the Remembrance of Allah. Those who do that shall be the losers.
[63.10] So spend of that with which We have provided you before death comes upon any of you and he then says: ‘O my Lord, if only You would defer me to a near term, so that I could give in charity and be among the good- doers.’
[63.11] But Allah will never defer any soul when its term comes. Allah is Aware of what you do.

The Loss and Gain – At-Taghabon
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
[64.1] All that is in heavens and earth exalt Allah. His is the Kingdom, and His the Praise. He is powerful over all things.
[64.2] It is He who created you. Amongst you is an unbeliever and amongst you is a believer. Allah sees the things you do.
[64.3] He created the heavens and the earth in truth and He shaped you and gave you good shapes. To Him is the arrival.
[64.4] He knows whatever is in the heavens and the earth and He knows all what you conceal and what you reveal. Allah knows the innermost of the chests.
[64.5] Have you not heard the news of those before you who disbelieved? They tasted the mischief of their action, and for them is a painful punishment.
[64.6] That is because, when their Messengers came to them with clear proofs they said: ‘Shall humans be our guides?’ They disbelieved and turned away, but Allah was not in need (of them). Allah is the Rich and the Praised.
[64.7] The unbelievers think that they will never be raised up. Say: ‘By my Lord, yes indeed, you shall assuredly be raised up! Then you shall be told of all that you have done. That is easy for Allah.’
[64.8] Believe in Allah, and His Messenger, and in the Light which We have sent down. Allah is Aware of all that you do.
[64.9] The Day on which He will gather you for the Day of Gathering; that is the Day of Loss and Gain. He who believes in Allah and does good deeds, Allah will acquit him of his evil deeds and admit him to Gardens underneath which rivers flow, where he shall live for ever. That is the mighty triumph.
[64.10] As for those who disbelieved and belied Our verses, they shall be the inhabitants of the Fire and shall live therein for ever. Evil shall be their arrival.
[64.11] No affliction falls except by the permission of Allah. For those who believe in Allah, Allah will guide his heart. Allah has knowledge of all things.
[64.12] Obey Allah and obey the Messenger. But, if you turn away, Our Messenger’s duty is only to deliver the Clear Message.
[64.13] Allah, there is no god except He. In Allah let the believers put their trust.
[64.14] Believers, some of your wives and children are enemies; so beware of them. But if you pardon, overlook and forgive them, then Allah is the Forgiving, the Most Merciful.
[64.15] Your wealth and children are but a trial, and with Allah is a mighty wage.
[64.16] Therefore fear Allah as much as you can, and listen, obey, and spend well for yourselves. And whosoever is saved from the greed of his own soul; those are the winners.
[64.17] If you lend a good loan to Allah He will multiply it for you and will forgive you. Allah is the Thankful, the Clement.
[64.18] He is the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible, the Almighty, the Wise.

The Divorce – At-Talaq
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
[65.1] O (nation of the) Prophet, if you divorce your wives, divorce them after (the end of their) menstrual cycle. Count their waiting period and fear Allah your Lord. Do not drive them from their homes or let them go away unless they commit a proven immorality. Such are the bounds set by Allah, he that exceeds the bounds of Allah wrongs himself. You do not know, perhaps after that Allah will bring a new event.
[65.2] When they have reached their term, either keep them honorably or part from them honorably. Call two honest men among you to witness and give your witnessing before Allah. Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day is warned to do this. Whosoever fears Allah, He will appoint for him a way out,
[65.3] and provide for him from where he does not expect, Allah is Sufficient for whosoever puts his trust in Him. Indeed, Allah brings about whatever He decrees. Allah has set a measure for all things.
[65.4] As for your women who have despaired of further menstruating, if you are in doubt, then their waiting period is three months as well as those who have not yet menstruated. As for those who are pregnant, their term shall be the time they deliver their burden. Allah will ease (matters) by His order for whosoever fears Him.
[65.5] Such is the command of Allah that He has sent down to you. Whosoever fears Allah shall be relieved of his sins and given a mighty wage.
[65.6] Lodge them in your home according to your means. Do not harass them so as to (make life) difficult for them. If they are with child, spend upon them until they deliver their burden; and if they suckle give them their wage and consult together honorably. But if you both make difficulties, let another woman suckle for him.
[65.7] Let the rich spend according to his wealth and for he whose provision is little, let him spend from what Allah has given him. Allah does not charge a soul except with that He has given him. Surely, Allah will bring ease after difficulty.
[65.8] How many a village has turned in its pride against the Order of their Lord and His Messengers! We made it a stern reckoning, and punished it with a horrible punishment.
[65.9] So it tasted the mischief of its action, and the end of its matter was loss.
[65.10] Allah has prepared a severe punishment for them. So those possessing understanding fear Allah. Believers, Allah has sent this down for you as a Reminder,
[65.11] a Messenger reciting to you the verses, clear verses of Allah, so that he may bring forth those who believe and do good deeds from the darkness into the light. Whosoever believes in Allah and does good deeds He will admit to Gardens underneath which rivers flow where they shall live for ever and ever. For those, Allah has made a goodly provision.
[65.12] It is Allah who has created the seven heavens, and of the earth their like, and the Command descends between them so that you know Allah is powerful over all things, and that Allah encompasses everything in knowledge.
