008.025 And fear tumult or oppression, which affecteth not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong: and know that Allah is strict in punishment.
008.026 Call to mind when ye were a small (band), despised through the land, and afraid that men might despoil and kidnap you;But He provided a safe asylum for you, strengthened you withHis aid, and gave you Good things for sustenance: that ye might be grateful.
008.027 O ye that believe! Betray not the trust of Allah and the Messenger, nor misappropriate knowingly things entrusted to you.
008.028 And know ye that your possessions and your progeny are but a trial; and that it is Allah with Whom liesyour highest reward.
008.029 O ye who believe! If ye fear Allah, He will grant you a criterion (to judge between right and wrong), remove from you (all) evil (that may afflict) you, and forgive you: for Allah isthe Lord of grace unbounded.
008.030 Remember how the Unbelievers plotted against thee, to keep thee in bonds, or slay thee, or get thee out (of thy home). They plot and plan, and Allah too plans; but the best of planners is Allah.
008.031 When Our Signs are rehearsed to them, they say: "We have heard this (before): if we wished,we could say (words) like these: these are nothing but tales of the ancients."
008.032 Remember how they said: "O Allahif this is indeed the Truth from Thee, rain down on us a shower of stones from the sky, or send us a grievous penalty."
008.033 But Allah was not going to send them a penalty whilst thou wast amongst them; nor was He going to send it whilst they could ask for pardon. 008.034 But what plea have they that Allah should not punish them, when they keepout (men) from the sacred Mosque - and they are not its guardians? No men canbe its guardians exceptthe righteous; but most of them do not understand.
008.035 Their prayer atthe House (of Allah) is nothing but whistling and clapping of hands: (Its only answer can be), "Taste ye the penalty because ye blasphemed." 008.036 The Unbelievers spend theirwealth to hinder (men)from the path of Allah,and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets andsighs; at length they will be overcome: and the Unbelievers will be gathered together to Hell;-
008.037 In order that Allah may separate the impure from the pure, put the impure, one on another, heap them together, and cast them into Hell. They will be the ones to have lost.
008.038 Say to the Unbelievers, if (now) they desist (from Unbelief), their past would be forgiven them; but if they persist, the punishment of those before them is already (a matter of warning for them).
008.039 And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faithin Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allahdoth see all that they do.
008.040 If they refuse,be sure that Allah is your Protector - the best to protect and the best to help.
008.041 And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifthshare is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer,- if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things.
008.042 Remember ye were on the hither sideof the valley, and they on the farther side, and the caravan on lower ground than ye. Even if ye had made a mutual appointment tomeet, ye would certainly have failed in the appointment: But (thus ye met), that Allah might accomplish a matter already enacted; that those who died might die after a clear Sign (had been given), and those who lived might live after a Clear Sign (had been given). And verily Allah is He Who heareth and knoweth (all things).
