[Shakir 47:1] (As for) those who disbelieve and turn away from Allah's way, He shall render their works ineffective.
[Shakir 47:2] And (as for) those who believe and do good, and believe in what has been revealed to Muhammad, and it is the very truth from their Lord, He will remove their evil from them and improve their condition.
[Shakir 47:3] That is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood, and those who believe follow the truth from their Lord; thus does Allah set forth to men their examples.
[Shakir 47:4] So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.
[Shakir 47:5] He will guide them and improve their condition.
[Shakir 47:6] And cause them to enter the garden which He has made known to them.
[Shakir 47:7] O you who believe ! if you help (the cause of) Allah, He will help you and make firm your feet.
[Shakir 47:8] And (as for) those who disbelieve, for them is destruction and He has made their deeds ineffective.
[Shakir 47:9] That is because they hated what Allah revealed, so He rendered their deeds null.
[Shakir 47:10] Have they not then journeyed in the land and seen how was the end of those before them: Allah brought down destruction upon them, and the unbelievers shall have the like of it.
[Shakir 47:11] That is because Allah is the Protector of those who believe, and because the unbelievers shall have no protector for them.
[Shakir 47:12] Surely Allah will make those who believe and do good enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; and those who disbelieve enjoy themselves and eat as the beasts eat, and the fire is their abode.
[Shakir 47:13] And how many a town which was far more powerful than the town of yours which has driven you out: We destroyed them so there was no helper for them.
[Shakir 47:14] What! is he who has a clear argument from his Lord like him to whom the evil of his work is made fairseeming: and they follow their low desires.
[Shakir 47:15] A parable of the garden which those guarding (against evil) are promised: Therein are rivers of water that does not alter, and rivers of milk the taste whereof does not change, and rivers of drink delicious to those who drink, and rivers of honey clarified and for them therein are all fruits and protection from their Lord. (Are these) like those who abide in the fire and who are made to drink boiling water so it rends their bowels asunder.
[Shakir 47:16] And there are those of them who seek to listen to you, until when they go forth from you, they say to those who have been given the knowledge: What was it that he said just now? These are they upon whose hearts Allah has set a seal and they follow their low desires.
[Shakir 47:17] And (as for) those who follow the right direction, He increases them in guidance and gives them their guarding (against evil).
[Shakir 47:18] Do they then wait for aught but the hour that it should come to them all of a sudden? Now indeed the tokens of it have (already) come, but how shall they have their reminder when it comes on them?
[Shakir 47:19] So know that there is no god but Allah, and, ask protection for your fault and for the believing men and the believing women; and Allah knows the place of your returning and the place of your abiding.
[Shakir 47:20] And those who believe say: Why has not a chapter been revealed? But when a decisive chapter is revealed, and fighting is mentioned therein you see those in whose hearts is a disease look to you with the look of one fainting because of death. Woe to them then!
[Shakir 47:21] Obedience and a gentle word (was proper); but when the affair becomes settled, then if they remain true to Allah it would certainly be better for them.
[Shakir 47:22] But if you held command, you were sure to make mischief in the land and cut off the ties of kinship!
[Shakir 47:23] Those it is whom Allah has cursed so He has made them deaf and blinded their eyes.
[Shakir 47:24] Do they not then reflect on the Quran? Nay, on the hearts there are locks.
[Shakir 47:25] Surely (as for) those who return on their backs after that guidance has become manifest to them, the Shaitan has made it a light matter to them; and He gives them respite.
[Shakir 47:26] That is because they say to those who hate what Allah has revealed: We will obey you in some of the affairs; and Allah knows their secrets.
[Shakir 47:27] But how will it be when the angels cause them to die smiting their backs.
[Shakir 47:28] That is because they follow what is displeasing to Allah and are averse to His pleasure, therefore He has made null their deeds.
[Shakir 47:29] Or do those in whose hearts is a disease think that Allah will not bring forth their spite?
[Shakir 47:30] And if We please We would have made you know them so that you would certainly have recognized them by their marks and most certainly you can recognize them by the intent of (their) speech; and Allah knows your deeds.
[Shakir 47:31] And most certainly We will try you until We have known those among you who exert themselves hard, and the patient, and made your case manifest.
[Shakir 47:32] Surely those who disbelieve and turn away from Allah's way and oppose the Messenger after that guidance has become clear to them cannot harm Allah in any way, and He will make null their deeds.
[Shakir 47:33] O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and do not make your deeds of no effect.
[Shakir 47:34] Surely those who disbelieve and turn away from Allah's way, then they die while they are unbelievers, Allah will by no means forgive them.
[Shakir 47:35] And be not slack so as to cry for peace and you have the upper hand, and Allah is with you, and He will not bring your deeds to naught.
[Shakir 47:36] The life of this world is only idle sport and play, and if you believe and guard (against evil) He will give you your rewards, and will not ask of you your possessions.
[Shakir 47:37] If He should ask you for it and urge you, you will be niggardly, and He will bring forth your malice.
[Shakir 47:38] Behold! you are those who are called upon to spend in Allah's way, but among you are those who are niggardly, and whoever is niggardly is niggardly against his own soul; and Allah is Self-sufficient and you have need (of Him), and if you turn back He will bring in your place another people, then they will not be like you.
