Surah 61. Surah al Saf

Surah 61. Surah al Saf (The Ranks)

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  1. Whatever is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah,
    And He is the Mighty, the Wise.
  2. O you who have certainty of faith!
    Why do you say what you (yourself) will not do?
  3. Most detestable before Allah is that you say
    What you (yourself) will not do.
  4. Verily, Allah loves those who fight in His cause
    In rows (ranks) as if they are a solid structure.
  5. And (remember) when Moses said to his people:
    “Why do you torment me?
    When you know that I am indeed
    A Messenger for you from Allah?”
    Then, when they turned away,
    Allah turned their hearts away (from His Guidance);
    Lo! Allah does not guide
    A people who break their covenants!
  6. And (remember) when Jesus, son of Mary, said to the children of Israel:
    “I am indeed a Messenger to you,
    Confirming what is with you in the Torah,
    And giving you the good tidings of a Messenger
    Who will come after me,
    Whose name shall be Ahmed”.
    Then, when he came to them with clear Signs, they said:
    “This is manifest sorcery!”
  7. And who is a greater transgressor than one
    Who ascribes a falsehood to Allah
    While he is invited towards surrender to Allah?
    Lo! Allah does not guide a people who transgress.
  8. They seek to extinguish the Light of Allah by their mouths,
    But Allah will complete (the revelation of) His Light,
    Even if the disbelievers detest it.
  9. He it is who sent down the Messenger with Guidance,
    And the Deen (Code) of Truth,
    So that He may make them stand out
    Among all other Deen (Codes),
    Even if those who associate partners with Allah detest it.
  10. O you who have certainty of faith!
    Shall I show you a bargain
    That will deliver you from a painful punishment?
  11. Have certainty of faith in Allah and His Messenger,
    And struggle in the path of Allah with your wealth and your souls;
    That is good for you if you but know.
  12. He will forgive you for your wrongdoings,
    And admit you to Gardens
    Beneath which flow streams (of Divine grace);
    And abodes of purity in Gardens of eternity;
    That is a great triumph!
  13. And yet another (blessing) that you love:
    Help from Allah and an opening (of hearts) that is near;
    And glad tidings for those who have certainty of faith.
  14. O you who have certainty of faith!
    Be helpers of Allah,
    As Jesus, son of Mary said to his Companions (Apostles):
    “Who will be my helpers in the way of Allah?”
    The Companions said:
    “We are helpers of Allah.”
    Then a group from among the children of Israel believed,
    And another group disbelieved.
    Then We reinforced those who had certainty of faith against their enemies,
    So they were triumphant.
