Chapter 61 : The Column (Al-Suff)


Sura:Verse English Arabic
61:0 In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
61:1 Glorifying GOD is everything in the heavens and everything on earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise. سَبَّحَ لِلَّهِ مَا فِي السموت وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ
61:2 O you who believe, why do you say what you do not do? يَايُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءامَنُوا لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لَا تَفْعَلُونَ
61:3 Most abominable in the sight of GOD is that you say what you do not do. كَبُرَ مَقْتًا عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَنْ تَقُولُوا مَا لَا تَفْعَلُونَ
61:4 GOD loves those who fight in His cause united in one column, like the bricks in one wall. إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الَّذِينَ يُقَتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ صَفًّا كَأَنَّهُمْ بُنيَنٌ مَرْصُوصٌ
61:5 Recall that Moses said to his people, "O my people, why do you hurt me, even though you know that I am GOD's messenger to you?" When they deviated, GOD diverted their hearts. For GOD does not guide the wicked people. وَإِذْ قَالَ مُوسَى لِقَوْمِهِ يَقَوْمِ لِمَ تُؤْذُونَنِي وَقَدْ تَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ فَلَمَّا زَاغُوا أَزَاغَ اللَّهُ قُلُوبَهُمْ وَاللَّهُ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْفَسِقِينَ
61:6
Messenger
After Jesus

 

Recall that Jesus, son of Mary, said, "O Children of Israel, I am GOD's messenger to you, confirming the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be even more praised (Ahmad)." Then, when he showed them the clear proofs, they said, "This is profound magic."

وَإِذْ قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ يَبَنِي إِسْرَءيلَ إِنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيَّ مِنَ التَّوْرَةِ وَمُبَشِّرًا بِرَسُولٍ يَأْتِي مِنْ بَعْدِي اسْمُهُ أَحْمَدُ فَلَمَّا جَاءَهُمْ بِالْبَيِّنَتِ قَالُوا هَذَا سِحْرٌ مُبِينٌ
61:7 Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies about GOD, and he is being invited to Submission? GOD does not guide the evil people. وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنْ افْتَرَى عَلَى اللَّهِ الْكَذِبَ وَهُوَ يُدْعَى إِلَى الْإِسْلَمِ وَاللَّهُ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّلِمِينَ
61:8 They wish to put out GOD's light with their mouths. But GOD insists upon perfecting His light, in spite of the disbelievers. يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِءوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَفِرُونَ
61:9
The Great
Prophecy

 

He has sent His messenger* with the guidance and the true religion, and will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.

 

*61:9 The specific name of this messenger is spelled out mathematically (Appendix 2).

هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ
61:10

The Best Deal

 

O you who believe, let Me inform you of a trade that will save you from painful retribution.

يَأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءامَنُوا هَلْ أَدُلُّكُمْ عَلَى تِجَرَةٍ تُنجِيكُمْ مِنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ
61:11 Believe in GOD and His messenger and strive in the cause of GOD with your money and your lives. This is the best deal for you, if you only knew. تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَتُجَهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِأَمْوَلِكُمْ وَأَنفُسِكُمْ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ
61:12 In return, He forgives your sins, and admits you into gardens with flowing streams, with beautiful mansions in the gardens of Eden. This is the greatest triumph. يَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَيُدْخِلْكُمْ جَنَّتٍ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَرُ وَمَسَكِنَ طَيِّبَةً فِي جَنَّتِ عَدْنٍ ذَلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ
61:13 Additionally, you get something you truly love: support from GOD and guaranteed victory. Give good news to the believers. وَأُخْرَى تُحِبُّونَهَا نَصْرٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ وَبَشِّرْ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
61:14 O you who believe, be GOD's supporters, like the disciples of Jesus, son of Mary. When he said to them, "Who are my supporters towards GOD," they said, "We are GOD's supporters." Thus, a group from the Children of Israel believed, and another group disbelieved. We helped those who believed against their enemy, until they won. يَأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءامَنُوا كُونوا أَنصَارَ اللَّهِ كَمَا قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ لِلْحَوَارِيِّينَ مَنْ أَنصَارِي إِلَى اللَّهِ قَالَ الْحَوَارِيُّونَ نَحْنُ أَنصَارُ اللَّهِ فَءامَنَتْ طَائِفَةٌ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَءيلَ وَكَفَرَتْ طَائِفَةٌ فَأَيَّدْنَا الَّذِينَ ءامَنُوا عَلَى عَدُوِّهِمْ فَأَصْبَحُوا ظَهِرِينَ

Praise be to God Lord of the universe.
