O Prophet (Muhammad صلى
وسلم)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the
hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, - and worst indeed
is that destination.
They swear by Allâh that they said nothing (bad), but really they
said the word of disbelief, and they disbelieved after accepting Islâm, and
they resolved that (plot to murder Prophet Muhammad صلى
وسلم) which they were unable to carry out, and they
could not find any cause to do so except that Allâh and His Messenger had
enriched them of His Bounty. If then they repent, it will be better for them,
but if they turn away, Allâh will punish them with a painful torment in this
worldly life and in the Hereafter. And there is none for them on earth as a Walî
(supporter, protector) or a helper.
And of them are some who made a covenant with Allâh (saying):
"If He bestowed on us of His Bounty, we will verily give Sadaqâh
and voluntary charity in Allâh’s Cause) and will be certainly among those
who are righteous."
Then when He gave them of His Bounty, they became niggardly [refused
to pay the Sadaqâh
or voluntary charity)], and turned
So He punished them by putting hypocrisy into their hearts till the
Day whereon they shall meet Him, because they broke that (covenant with Allâh)
which they had promised to Him and because they used to tell lies.
Know they not that Allâh knows their secret ideas, and their Najwa
counsels), and that Allâh is the All-Knower of things unseen.
Those who defame such of the believers who give charity (in Allâh’s
Cause) voluntarily, and such who could not find to give charity (in Allâh’s
Cause) except what is available to them - so they mock at them (believers); Allâh
will throw back their mockery on them, and they shall have a painful torment.
