Sura As-Saff (The Row or Rank)
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    61:1 All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth glorifies God, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

    61:2-3 O you who believe! Why say you that which you do not? It is most hateful in the sight of God that you say that which you do not do.

    61:4 Lo! God loves those who battle for His cause in ranks, as if they were a solid structure.

    61:5 And (remember) when Moses said to his people: O my people! Why persecute you me, when you well know that I am God's Messenger to you? So when they went astray God sent their hearts astray. And God guides not the evildoing folk.

    61:6 And when Jesus son of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Lo! I am the Messenger of God to you, confirming that which was (revealed) before me in the Torah, and bringing good tidings of a Messenger who comes after me, whose name is the `Praised One'. Yet when be has come to them with clear proofs, they say: This is mere magic.

    61:7 And who does greater wrong than he who invents a lie against God when he is summoned to Islam. And God guides not wrongdoing folk.

    61:8 Gladly would they put out the light of God with their mouths, but God will perfect His light however much the disbelievers are averse.

    61:9 He It is Who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may make it conqueror of all religion however much polytheists may be averse.

    61:10-12 O you who believe! Shall I show you a commerce that will save you from a painful punishment? You should believe in God and His Messenger, and should fight hard for the cause of God with your wealth and your lives. That is better for you, if you did but know. He will forgive you your sins and bring you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, and pleasant dwellings in Gardens of Eden. That is the supreme triumph.

    61:13 And (He will give you) another blessing which you love: help from God and present victory. Give good tidings (O Muhammad) to the believers.

    61:14 O you who believe! Be God's helpers, even as Jesus son of Mary said to the disciples: Who are my helpers for God? They said: We are God's helpers. And a party of the Children of Israel believed, while a party disbelieved. Then We strengthened those who believed against their foe, and they became the uppermost.
