The Qur'an (Rodwell tr) : Sura 9 - Immunity

SURA IX - IMMUNITY (9) - [MEDINA - 130 VERSES] (CXIII - 470)

An Immunity from God and His Apostle to those with whom ye are in

league, among the Polytheist Arabs! (those who join gods with God).

Go ye therefore, at league in the land four months: but know that God

ye shall not weaken; and that those who believe not, God will put to shame -

And a proclamation on the part of God and His Apostle to the people on

the day of the greater pilgrimage, that God is free from any engagement with

the votaries of other gods with God as is His Apostle! If, therefore, ye turn

to God it will be better for you; but if ye turn back, then know that ye shall

not weaken God: and to those who believe not, announce thou a grievous

punishment.

But this concerneth not those Polytheists with whom ye are in league,

and who shall have afterwards in no way failed you, nor aided anyone against

you. Observe, therefore, engagement with them through the whole time of their

treaty: for God loveth those who fear Him.

And when the sacred months are passed, kill those who join other gods

with God wherever ye shall find them; and seize them, besiege them, and lay

wait for them with every kind of ambush: but if they shall convert, and

observe prayer, and pay the obligatory alms, then let them go their way, for

God is Gracious, Merciful.

If any one of those who join gods with God ask an asylum of thee, grant

him an asylum, that he may hear the Word of God, and then let him reach his

place of safety. This, for that they are people devoid of knowledge.

How shall they who add gods to God be in league with God and with His

Apostle, save those with whom ye made a league at the sacred temple? So long

as they are true to you, be ye true to them; for God loveth those who fear Him.

How can they? since if they prevail against you, they will not regard

in you either ties of blood or faith. With their mouths will they content you,

but their hearts will be averse. The greater part of them are perverse doers.

They sell the signs of God for a mean price, and turn others aside from

his way: evil is it that they do!

9:10 They regard not in a believer either ties of blood or faith; these are

the transgressors!

Yet if they turn to God and observe prayer, and pay the impost, then are

they your brethren in religion. We make clear our signs to those who

understand.

But, if after alliance made, they break their oaths and revile your

religion, then do battle with the ring-leaders of infidelity - for no oaths are

binding with them - that they may desist.

What! will ye not fight against those Meccans who have broken their

oaths and aimed to expel your Apostle, and attacked you first? Will ye dread

them? God is more worthy of your fear, if ye are believers.!

So make war on them: By your hands will God chastise them, and will put

them to shame, and will give you victory over them, and will heal the bosoms of

a people who believe;

And will take away the wrath of their hearts. God will be turned unto

whom He will: and God is Knowing, Wise.

Think ye that ye shall be forsaken as if God did not yet know those

among you who do valiantly, and take none for their friends beside God, and His

Apostle, and the faithful? God is well apprised of your doings.

It is not for the votaries of other gods with God, witnesses against

themselves of infidelity, to visit the temples of God. These! vain their

works: and in the fire shall they abide for ever!

He only should visit the temples of God who believeth in God and the

last day, and observeth prayer, and payeth the legal alms, and dreadeth none

but God. These haply will be among the rightly guided.

Do ye place the giving drink to the pilgrims, and the visitation of the

sacred temple, on the same level with him who believeth in God and the last

day, and fighteth on the way of God? They shall not be held equal by God: and

God guideth not the unrighteous.

9:20 They who have believed, and fled their homes, and striven with their

substance and with their persons on the path of God, shall be of highest grade

with God: and these are they who shall be happy!

Tidings of mercy from Himself, and of His good pleasure, doth their Lord

send them, and of gardens in which lasting pleasure shall be theirs;

Therein shall they abide for ever; for God! with Him is a great reward.

O believers! make not friends of your fathers or your brethren if they

love unbelief above faith: and whoso of you shall make them his friends, will

be wrong doers.

Say: If your fathers, and your sons, and your brethren, and your wives,

and your kindred, and the wealth which ye have gained, and merchandise which ye

fear may be unsold, and dwellings wherein ye delight, be dearer to you than God

and His Apostle and efforts on his Path, then wait until God shall Himself

enter on His work: and God guideth not the impious.

Now hath God helped you in many battlefields, and on the day of Honein,

when ye prided yourselves on your numbers; but it availed you nothing; and the

earth, with all its breadth, became too straight for you: then turned ye your

backs in flight:

Then did God send down His spirit of repose upon His Apostle, and upon

the faithful, and He sent down the hosts which ye saw not, and He punished the

Infidels: This, the Infidels' reward!

Yet, after this, will God be turned to whom He pleaseth; for God is

Gracious, Merciful!

O Believers! only they who join gods with God are unclean! Let them

not, therefore, after this their year, come near the sacred Temple. And if ye

fear want, God, if He please, will enrich you of His abundance: for God is

Knowing, Wise.

Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as

believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and

His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the professions of the truth,

until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.

9:30 The Jews say, "Ezra (Ozair) is a son of God"; and the Christians say,

"The Messiah is a son of God." Such the sayings in their mouths! They resemble

the saying of the Infidels of old! God do battle with them! How are they

misguided!

They take their teachers, and their monks, and the Messiah, son of Mary,

for Lords beside God, though bidden to worship one God only. There is no God

but He! Far from His glory be what they associated with Him!

Fain would they put out God's light with their mouths: but God only

desireth to perfect His light, albeit the Infidels abhor it.

He it is who hath sent His Apostle with the Guidance and a religion of

the truth, that He may make it victorious over every other religion, albeit

they who assign partners to God be averse from it.

O Believers! of a truth, many of the teachers and monks do devour man's

substance in vanity, and turn them from the Way of God. But to those who

treasure up gold and silver and expend it not in the Way of God, announce

tidings of a grievous torment.

On that day their treasures shall be heated in hell fire, and their

foreheads, and their sides, and their back, shall be branded with them....

"This is what ye have treasured up for yourselves: taste, therefore, your

treasures!"

Twelve months is the number of months with God, according to God's book,

since the day when He created the Heavens and the Earth: of these four are

sacred: this is the right usage: But wrong not yourselves therein; attack

those who join gods with God in all, as they attack you in all: and know that

God is with those who fear Him.

To carry over a sacred month to another, is only a growth of infidelity.

The Infidels are led into error by it. They allow it one year, and forbid it

another, that they may make good the number of months which God hath hallowed,

and they allow that which God hath prohibited. The evil of their deeds hath

been prepared for them by Satan: for God guideth not the people who do not

believe.

O Believers! what possessed you, that when it was said to you, "March

forth on the Way of God," ye sank heavily earthwards? What! prefer ye the life

of this world to the next? But the fruition of this mundane life, in respect

of that which is to come, is but little.

Unless ye march forth, with a grievous chastisement will He chastise

you; and He will place another people in your stead, and ye shall in no way

harm Him: for over everything is God potent.

9:40 If ye assist not your Prophet ... God assisted him formerly, when the

unbelievers drove him forth, in company with a second only! when they two were

in the cave; when the Prophet said to his companion, "Be not distressed;

verily, God is with us." And God sent down His tranquility upon him, and

strengthened him with hosts ye saw not, and made the word of those who

believed not the abased, and the word of God was the exalted: for God is

Mighty, Wise.

March ye forth the light and heavy armed, and contend with your

substance and your persons on the Way of God. This, if ye know it, will be

better for you.

Had there been a near advantage and a short journey, they would

certainly have followed thee; but the way seemed long to them. Yet will they

sear by God, "Had we been able, we had surely gone forth with you:" they are

self-destroyers! And God knoweth that they are surely liars!

God forgive there! Why didst thou give them leave to stay behind, ere

they who make true excuses had become known to thee, and thou hadst known the

liars?

They who believe in God and in the last day will not ask leave of thee

to be exempt from contending with their substance and their persons. But God

knoweth those who fear Him!

They only will ask thy leave who believe not in God and the last day,

and whose hearts are full of doubts, and who are tossed up and down in their

doubtings.

Moreover, had they been desirous to take the field, they would have got

ready for that purpose the munitions of war. But God was averse to their

marching forth, and made them laggards; and it was said, "Sit ye at home with

those who sit."

Had they taken the field with you, they would only have added a burden

to you, and have hurried about among you, stirring you up to sedition; and some

there are among you who would have listened to them: and God knoweth the evil

doers.

Of old aimed they at sedition, and deranged thy affairs, until the truth

arrived, and the behest of God became apparent, averse from it though they

were.

Some of them say to thee, "Allow me to remain at home, and expose me not

to the trial." Have they not fallen into a trial already? But verily, Hell

shall environ the Infidels!

9:50 If a success betide thee, it annoyeth them: but if a reverse betide

thee, they say, "We took our own measures before:" and they turn their backs

and are glad.

Say: Nothing can befall us but what God hath destined for us. Our

liege-lord is He; and on God let the faithful trust!

Say: Await ye for us, other than one of the two best things? But we

await for you the infliction of a chastisement by God, from himself, or at our

hands. Wait ye then; we verily will wait with you.

Say: Make ye your offerings willingly or by constraint; it cannot be

accepted from you, because ye are a wicked people:

And nothing hindreth the acceptance of their offerings, but that they

believe not in God and His Apostle, and discharge not the duty of prayer but

with sluggishness, and make not offerings but with reluctance.

Let not, therefore, their riches or their children amaze thee. God is

only minded to punish them by means of these, in this life present, and that

their souls may depart while they are unbelievers.

And they swear by God that they are indeed of you, yet they are not of

you, but they are people who are afraid of you:

If they find a place of refuge, or caves, or a hiding place, they

assuredly turn towards it and haste thereto.

Some of them also defame thee in regard to the alms; yet if a part be

given them, they are content, but if no part be given them, behold, they are

angry!

Would that they were satisfied with that which God and His Apostle had

given them, and would say "God sufficeth us! God will vouchsafe unto us of His

favour, and so will His Apostle: verily until God do we make our suit!"

9:60 But alms are only to be given to the poor and needy, and those who

collect them, and to those whose hearts are won to Islam, and for ransoms, and

for debtors, and for the cause of God, and the wayfarer. This is an ordinance

from God: and God is Knowing, Wise.

There are some of them who injure the Prophet and say, "He is all ear."

Say: An ear of good to you! He believeth in God, and believeth the believers:

and is a mercy to such of you as believe:

But they who injure the Apostle of God, shall suffer a dolorous

chastisement.

They swear to you by God to please you; but worthier is God, and His

Apostle, that they should please Him, if they are believers.

Know they not, that for him who opposeth God and His Apostle, is surely

the fire of Hell, in which he shall remain for ever? This is the great

ignominy!

The hypocrites are afraid lest a Sura should be sent down concerning

them, to tell them plainly what is in their hearts. Say: Scoff ye; but God

will bring to light that which ye are afraid of.

And if thou question them, they will surely say, "We were only

discoursing and jesting." Say: What! do ye scoff at God, and His signs, and

His Apostle?

Make no excuse: from faith ye have passed to infidelity! If we forgive

some of you, we will punish others:L for that they have been evil doers.

Hypocritical men and women imitate one another. They enjoin what is

evil, and forbid what is just, and shut up their hands. They have forgotten

God, and He hath forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the perverse

doers.

God promiseth the hypocritical men and women, and the unbelievers, the

fire of Hell - therein shall they abide - this their sufficing portion! And

God hath cursed them, and a lasting torment shall be theirs.

9:70 Ye act like those who flourished before you. Mightier were they than

you in prowess, and more abundant in wealth and children, and they enjoyed

their portion: so ye also enjoy your portion, as they were were before you

enjoyed theirs; and ye hold discourses like their discourses. These! vain

their works both for this world and for that which is to come! These! they

are the lost ones.

Hath not the history reached them of those who were before them? - of

the people of Noah, and of Ad, and of Themoud, and of the people of Abraham,

and of the inhabitants of Madian, and of the overthrown cities? Their apostles

came to them with clear proofs of their mission: God would not deal wrongly by

them, but they dealt wrongly by themselves.

The faithful of both sexes are mutual friends: they enjoin what is

just, and forbid what is evil; they observe prayer, and pay the legal impost,

and they obey God and His Apostle. On these will God have mercy: verily, God

is Mighty, Wise.

To the faithful, both men and women, God promiseth gardens 'neath which

the rivers flow, in which they shall abide, and goodly mansions in the gardens

of Eden. But best of all will be God's good pleasure in them. This will be

the great bliss.

O Prophet! contend against the infidels and the hypocrites, and be

rigorous with them: Hell shall be their dwelling place! Wretched the journey

thither!

They swear by God that they said no such thing: yet spake they the word

infidelity, and from Muslims became unbelievers! They planned what they could

not effect; and only disapproved of it because God and His Apostle had enriched

them by His bounty! If they repent it will be better for them; but if they

fall back into their sin, with a grievous chastisement will God chastise them

in this world and the next, and on earth they shall have neither friend nor

protector!

Some there are of them who made this agreement with God - "If truly He

give us of His bounties, we will surely give alms and surely be of the

righteous."

Yet when he had vouchsafed them of His bounty, they became covetous

thereof, and turned their backs, and withdrew afar off:

So He caused hypocrisy to take its turn in their hearts, until the day

on which they shall meet Him - for that they failed their promise to God, and

for that they were liars!

9:80 They who traduce such of the faithful as give their alms freely, and

those who find nothing to give but their earnings, and scoff at them, God shall

scoff at them; and there is a grievous torment in store for them.

Ask thou forgiveness for them, or ask it not, it will be the same. If

thou ask forgiveness for them seventy times, God will by no means forgive them.

This, for that they believe not in God and His Apostle! And God guideth not

the ungodly people.

They who were left at home were delighted to stay behind God's Apostle,

and were averse from contending with their riches and their persons for the

cause of God, and said, "March not out in the heat." Say: A fiercer heat will

be the fire of Hell." Would that they understood this.

Little, therefore, let them laugh, and much let them weep, as the meed

of their doings!

If God bring thee back from the fight to some of them, and they ask thy

leave to take the field, Say: By no means shall ye ever take the field with

me, and by no means shall ye fight an enemy with me: ye were well pleased to

sit at home at the first crisis: sit ye at home, then, with those who lag

behind.

Never pray thou over anyone of them who dieth, or stand at his grave -

because they believed not in God and His Apostle, and died in their wickedness.

Let not their riches or their children astonish thee: through these God

is fain only to punish them in this world, and that their souls should depart

while they are still infidels.

When a Sura was sent down with "Believe in God and go forth to war with

His Apostle," those of them who are possessed of riches demanded exemption, and

said, "Allow us to be with those who sit at home.

Well content were they to be with those who stay behind: for a seal

hath been set on their hearts so that they understand not: -

But the Apostle and those who share his faith, contend for the faith

with purse and person; and these! all good things await them: and these are

they who shall be happy.

9:90 God hath made ready for them gardens 'neath which the rivers flow,

wherein they shall remain for ever: this will be the great bliss.

Some Arabs of the desert came with excuses, praying exemption; and they

who had gainsaid God and His Apostle sat at home: a grievous punishment shall

light on such of them as believe not.

It shall be no crime in the weak, and in the sick, and in those who find

not the means of contributing, to stay at home, provided they are sincere with

God and His Apostle. Against those who act virtuously, there is no cause of

blame: and God is Gracious, Merciful: -

Nor against those, to whom when they came to thee that thou shouldst

mount them, thou didst say "I find not wherewith to mount you," and they turned

away their eyes shedding floods of tears for grief, because they found no means

to contribute.

On is there cause of blame against those who, though they are rich, ask

thee for exemption. They are pleased to be with those who stay behind; and God

hath set a seal upon their hearts: they have no knowledge.

They will excuse themselves to you when ye come back to them. Say:

Excuse yourselves not; we cannot believe you: now hath God informed us about

you: God will behold your doings, and so will His Apostle: to Him who

knoweth alike things hidden and things manifest shall ye hereafter be brought

back: and He will tell you what ye have done.

They will adjure you by God when ye are come back to them, to withdraw

from them: Withdraw from them, then, for they are unclean: their dwelling

shall be Hell, in recompense for their deserts.

They will adjure you to take pleasure in them; but if ye take pleasure

in them, God truly will take no pleasure in those who act corruptly.

The Arabs of the desert are most stout in unbelief and dissimulation;

and likelier it is that they should be unaware of the laws which God hath sent

down to His Apostle: and God is Knowing, Wise.

Of the Arabs of the desert there are some who reckon what they expend in

the cause of God as tribute, and wait for some change of fortune to befall you:

a change for evil shall befall them! God is the Hearer, the Knower.

9:100 And of the Arabs of the desert, some believe in God and in the last day,

and deem those alms an approach to God and to the Apostle's prayers. Are they

not their approach? Into His mercy shall God lead them: yes, God is

Indulgent, Merciful.

As for those who led the way, the first of the Mohadjers, and the

Ansars, and those who have followed their noble conduct, God is well pleased

with them, and they with Him: He hath made ready for them gardens under whose

trees the rivers flow: to abide therein for aye: this shall be the great

bliss:

And of the Arabs of the desert round about you, some are hypocrites:

and of the people of Medina, some are stubborn in hypocrisy. thou knowest them

not, Muhammad: we know them: twice will we chastise them: then shall they be

given over to a great chastisement.

Others have owned their faults, and with an action that is right they

have mixed another that is wrong. God will haply be turned to them: for God

is Forgiving, Merciful.

Take alms of their substance, that thou mayst cleanse and purify them

thereby, and pray for them; for thy prayers shall assure their minds: and God

Heareth, Knoweth.

Know they not that when his servants turn to Him with repentance, God

accepteth it, and that He accepteth alms, and that God is He who turneth, the

Merciful?

Say: Work ye: but God will behold your work, and so will His Apostle,

and the faithful: and ye shall be brought before Him who knoweth alike the

Hidden and the Manifest, and He will tell you of all your works.

And others await the decision of God; whether He will punish them, or

whether He will be turned unto them: but God is Knowing, Wise.

There are some who have built a Mosque for mischief and for infidelity,

and to disunite the faithful, and in expectation of him who, in time past,

warned against God and His Apostle. They will surely sear, "Our aim was only

good:" but God is witness that they are liars.

Never set thou foot in it. There is a Mosque founded from tis first day

in piety. More worthy is it that thou enter therein: therein are men who

aspire to purity, and God loveth the purified.

9:110 Which of the two is best? He who hath founded his building on the fear

of God and the desire to please Him, or he who hath founded his building on the

brink of an undermined bank washed away by torrents, so that it rusheth with

him into the fire of Hell? But God guided not the doers of wrong.

Their building which they have built will not cease to cause uneasiness

in their hearts, until their hearts are cut in pieces. God is Knowing, Wise.

Verily, of the faithful hath God bought their persons and their

substances, on condition of Paradise for them in return: on the path of God

shall they fight, and slay, and be slain: a promise for this is pledged in the

Law, and in the Evangel, and in the Koran - and who more faithful to his

engagement than God? Rejoice, therefore, in the contract that ye have

contracted: for this shall be the great bliss.

Those who turn to God, and those who serve, who praise, who fast, who

bow down, who prostrate themselves, who enjoin what is just and forbid what is

evil, and keep to the bounds of God... Wherefore bear these good tidings to

the faithful.

It is not for the prophet or the faithful to pray for the forgiveness of

those, even though they be of kin, who associate other beings with God, after

it hath been made clear to them that they are to be the inmates of Hell.

For neither did Abraham ask forgiveness for his father, but in pursuance

of a promise which he had promised to him: but when it was shewn him that he

was an enemy to God, he declared himself clear of him. Yet Abraham was

pitiful, kind.

Nor is it for God to lead a people into error, after he hath guided them

aright, until that which they ought to dread hath been clearly shewn them.

Verily, God knoweth all things.

God! His the kingdom of the Heavens and of the Earth! He maketh alive

and killeth! Ye have no patron or helper save God.

Now hath God turned Him unto the Prophet and unto the refugees

(Mohadjers), and unto the helpers (Ansars), who followed him in the hour of

distress, after that the hearts of a part of them had well nigh failed them.

Then turned He unto them, for He was Kind to them, Merciful.

He hath also turned Him unto the three who were left behind, so that the

earth, spacious as it is, became to strait for them; and their souls became so

straitened within them, that they bethought them that there was no refuge from

God but unto Himself. Then was He turned to them, that they might be turned to

Him, for God is He that turneth, the Merciful.

9:120 Believers! fear God, and be with the sincere.

No cause had the people of Medina and the Arabs of the desert around

them, to abandon God's Apostle, or to prefer their own lives to his; because

neither thirst, nor the labour, nor hunger, could come upon them when on path

of God; neither do they step a step which may anger the unbelievers, neither do

they receive from the enemy any damage, but it is written down to them as a

good work. Verily, God suffereth not the reward of the righteous to perish.

Nor give they alms either small or great, nor traverse they a torrent,

but it is thus reckoned to them; that God may reward them with better than they

have wrought.

The faithful must not march forth all together to the wars: and if a

party of every band of them march not out, it is that they may instruct

themselves in their religion, and may warn their people when they come back to

them, that they take heed to themselves.

Believers! wage war against such of the infidels as are your neighbours,

and let them find you rigorous: and know that God is with those who fear him.

Whenever a Sura is sent down, there are some of them who say, "Whose

faith hath it increased?" It will increase the faith of those who believe, and

they shall rejoice.

But as to those in whose hearts is a disease, it will add doubt to their

doubt, and they shall die infidels.

Do they not see that they are proved every year once or twice? Yet they

turn not, neither are they warned.

And whenever a Sura is sent down, they look at one another.... "Doth any

one see you?" then turn they aside. God shall turn their hearts aside,

because they are a people devoid of understanding.

Now hath an Apostle come unto you from among yourselves: your

iniquities press heavily upon him. He is careful over you, and towards the

faithful, compassionate, merciful.

9:130 If they turn away, Say: God sufficeth me: there is no God but He. In

Him put I my trust. He is the possessor of the Glorious Throne!
