It is not our intent to belittle, unduly criticize, or “bash”
anyone who may hold religious or political persuasions or opinions other
than our own. Even though we may absolutely and totally disagree with your
opinion, we will defend to the death your God-given right
to hold it. Since this website was originally launched in 1995, we have
continually held the position that We are not “anti-”anybody; we are
only pro-Truth. [Please
read this important page.]
In Islamic theology, and often in
uninformed Western society, the word “Allah” is often translated “God,” as
if Allah were the same as the God of the Bible (which
he absolutely is not). Whenever “Allah” has been translated as
“God” in this copy of the Qur'an, we have corrected that grave error by
replaced that word with the correct designation “[Allah]”.
[My commentary is notated llike this.]
In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[5.1] O you who believe!
fulfill the obligations. The cattle quadrupeds are allowed to you except
that which is recited to you, not violating the prohibition against game
when you are entering upon the performance of the pilgrimage; surely Allah
orders what He desires.
[5.2] O you who believe! do not
violate the signs appointed by Allah nor the sacred month, nor (interfere
with) the offerings, nor the sacrificial animals with garlands, nor those
going to the sacred house seeking the grace and pleasure of their Lord;
and when you are free from the obligations of the pilgrimage, then hunt,
and let not hatred of a people-- because they hindered you from the Sacred
Masjid-- incite you to exceed the limits, and help one another in goodness
and piety, and do not help one another in sin and aggression; and be
careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in requiting
[5.3] Forbidden to you is that
which dies of itself, and blood, and flesh of swine, and that on which any
other name than that of Allah has been invoked, and the strangled (animal)
and that beaten to death, and that killed by a fall and that killed by
being smitten with the horn, and that which wild beasts have eaten, except
what you slaughter, and what is sacrificed on stones set up (for idols)
and that you divide by the arrows; that is a transgression. This day have
those who disbelieve despaired of your religion, so fear them not, and
fear Me. This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My
favor on you and chosen for you Islam as a religion; but whoever is
compelled by hunger, not inclining willfully to sin, then surely Allah is
[5.4] They ask you as to what
is allowed to them. Say: The good things are allowed to you, and what you
have taught the beasts and birds of prey, training them to hunt-- you
teach them of what Allah has taught you-- so eat of that which they catch
for you and mention the name of Allah over it; and be careful of (your
duty to) Allah; surely Allah is swift in reckoning.
[5.5] This day (all) the good
things are allowed to you; and the food of those who have been given the
Book is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them; and the chaste
from among the believing women and the chaste from among those who have
been given the Book before you (are lawful for you); when you have given
them their dowries, taking (them) in marriage, not fornicating nor taking
them for paramours in secret; and whoever denies faith, his work indeed is
of no account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.
[5.6] O you who believe! when
you rise up to prayer, wash your faces and your hands as far as the
elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles; and if you are
under an obligation to perform a total ablution, then wash (yourselves)
and if you are sick or on a journey, or one of you come from the privy, or
you have touched the women, and you cannot find water, betake yourselves
to pure earth and wipe your faces and your hands therewith, Allah does not
desire to put on you any difficulty, but He wishes to purify you and that
He may complete His favor on you, so that you may be grateful.
[5.7] And remember the favor of
Allah on you and His covenant with which He bound you firmly, when you
said: We have heard and we obey, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah,
surely Allah knows what is in the breasts.
[5.8] O you who believe! Be
upright for Allah, bearers of witness with justice, and let not hatred of
a people incite you not to act equitably; act equitably, that is nearer to
piety, and he careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is Aware of
what you do.
[5.9] Allah has promised to
those who believe and do good deeds (that) they shall have forgiveness and
a mighty reward.
[5.10] And (as for) those who
disbelieve and reject our communications, these are the companions of the
[5.11] O you who believe!
remember Allah's favor on you when a people had determined to stretch
forth their hands towards you, but He withheld their hands from you, and
be careful of (your duty to) Allah; and on Allah let the believers rely.
[5.12] And certainly Allah made
a covenant with the children of Israel, and We raised up among them twelve
chieftains; and Allah said: Surely I am with you; if you keep up prayer
and pay the poor-rate and believe in My apostles and assist them and offer
to Allah a goodly gift, I will most certainly cover your evil deeds, and I
will most certainly cause you to enter into gardens beneath which rivers
flow, but whoever disbelieves from among you after that, he indeed shall
lose the right way.
[5.13] But on account of their
breaking their covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard; they
altered the words from their places and they neglected a portion of what
they were reminded of; and you shall always discover treachery in them
excepting a few of them; so pardon them and turn away; surely Allah loves
those who do good (to others).
[5.14] And with those who say,
We are Christians, We made a covenant, but they neglected a portion of
what they were reminded of, therefore We excited among them enmity and
hatred to the day of resurrection; and Allah will inform them of what they
[5.15] O followers of the Book!
indeed Our Apostle has come to you making clear to you much of what you
concealed of the Book and passing over much; indeed, there has come to you
light and a clear Book from Allah;
[5.16] With it Allah guides him
who will follow His pleasure into the ways of safety and brings them out
of utter darkness into light by His will and guides them to the right
[5.17] Certainly they
disbelieve who say: Surely, Allah-- He is the Messiah, son of Marium. Say:
Who then could control anything as against Allah when He wished to destroy
the Messiah son of Marium and his mother and all those on the earth? And
Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between
them; He creates what He pleases; and Allah has power over all things,
[5.18] And the Jews and the
Christians say: We are the sons of Allah and His beloved ones. Say: Why
does He then chastise you for your faults? Nay, you are mortals from among
those whom He has created, He forgives whom He pleases and chastises whom
He pleases; and Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and
what is between them, and to Him is the eventual coming.
[5.19] O followers of the Book!
indeed Our Apostle has come to you explaining to you after a cessation of
the (mission of the) apostles, lest you say: There came not to us a giver
of good news or a warner, so indeed there has come to you a giver of good
news and a warner; and Allah has power over all things.
[5.20] And when Musa said to
his people: O my people! remember the favor of Allah upon you when He
raised prophets among you and made you kings and gave you what He had not
given to any other among the nations.
[5.21] O my people! enter the
holy land which Allah has prescribed for you and turn not on your backs
for then you will turn back losers.
[5.22] They said: O Musa!
surely there is a strong race in it, and we will on no account enter it
until they go out from it, so if they go out from it, then surely we will
[5.23] Two men of those who
feared, upon both of whom Allah had bestowed a favor, said: Enter upon
them by the gate, for when you have entered it you shall surely be
victorious, and on Allah should you rely if you are believers.
[5.24] They said: O Musa! we
shall never enter it so long as they are in it; go therefore you and your
Lord, then fight you both surely we will here sit down.
[5.25] He said: My Lord! Surely
I have no control (upon any) but my own self and my brother; therefore
make a separation between us and the nation of transgressors.
[5.26] He said: So it shall
surely be forbidden to them for forty years, they shall wander about in
the land, therefore do not grieve for the nation of transgressors.
[5.27] And relate to them the
story of the two sons of Adam with truth when they both offered an
offering, but it was accepted from one of them and was not accepted from
the other. He said: I I will most certainly slay you. (The other) said:
Allah only accepts from those who guard (against evil).
[5.28] If you will stretch
forth your hand towards me to slay me, I am not one to stretch forth my
hand towards you to slay you surely I fear Allah, the Lord of the worlds:
[5.29] Surely I wish that you
should bear the sin committed against me and your own sin, and so you
would be of the inmates of the fire, and this is the recompense of the
[5.30] Then his mind
facilitated to him the slaying of his brother so he slew him; then he
became one of the losers
[5.31] Then Allah sent a crow
digging up the earth so that he might show him how he should cover the
dead body of his brother. He said: Woe me! do I lack the strength that I
should be like this crow and cover the dead body of my brother? So he
became of those who regret.
[5.32] For this reason did We
prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it
be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew
all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all
men; and certainly Our apostles came to them with clear arguments, but
even after that many of them certainly act extravagantly in the land.
[5.33] The punishment of those
who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in
the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their
hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be
imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the
hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement,
[5.34] Except those who repent
before you have them in your power; so know that Allah is Forgiving,
[5.35] O you who believe! be
careful of (your duty to) Allah and seek means of nearness to Him and
strive hard in His way that you may be successful.
[5.36] Surely (as for) those
who disbelieve, even if they had what is in the earth, all of it, and the
like of it with it, that they might ransom themselves with it from the
punishment of the day of resurrection, it shall not be accepted from them,
and they shall have a painful punishment.
[5.37] They would desire to go
forth from the fire, and they shall not go forth from it, and they shall
have a lasting punishment.
[5.38] And (as for) the man who
steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands as a punishment for
what they have earned, an exemplary punishment from Allah; and Allah is
[5.39] But whoever repents
after his iniquity and reforms (himself), then surely Allah will turn to
him (mercifully); surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[5.40] Do you not know that
Allah-- His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; He chastises whom
He pleases; and forgives whom He pleases and Allah has power over all
[5.41] O Apostle! let not those
grieve you who strive together in hastening to unbelief from among those
who say with their mouths: We believe, and their hearts do not believe,
and from among those who are Jews; they are listeners for the sake of a
lie, listeners for another people who have not come to you; they alter the
words from their places, saying: If you are given this, take it, and if
you are not given this, be cautious; and as for him whose temptation Allah
desires, you cannot control anything for him with Allah. Those are they
for whom Allah does not desire that He should purify their hearts; they
shall have disgrace in this world, and they shall have a grievous
chastisement in the hereafter.
[5.42] (They are) listeners of
a lie, devourers of what is forbidden; therefore if they come to you,
judge between them or turn aside from them, and if you turn aside from
them, they shall not harm you in any way; and if you judge, judge between
them with equity; surely Allah loves those who judge equitably.
[5.43] And how do they make you
a judge and they have the Taurat wherein is Allah's judgment? Yet they
turn back after that, and these are not the believers.
[5.44] Surely We revealed the
Taurat in which was guidance and light; with it the prophets who submitted
themselves (to Allah) judged (matters) for those who were Jews, and the
masters of Divine knowledge and the doctors, because they were required to
guard (part) of the Book of Allah, and they were witnesses thereof;
therefore fear not the people and fear Me, and do not take a small price
for My communications; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed,
those are they that are the unbelievers.
[5.45] And We prescribed to
them in it that life is for life, and eye for eye, and nose for nose, and
ear for ear, and tooth for tooth, and (that there is) reprisal in wounds;
but he who foregoes it, it shall be an expiation for him; and whoever did
not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the unjust.
[5.46] And We sent after them
in their footsteps Isa, son of Marium, verifying what was before him of
the Taurat and We gave him the Injeel in which was guidance and light, and
verifying what was before it of Taurat and a guidance and an admonition
for those who guard (against evil).
[5.47] And the followers of the
Injeel should have judged by what Allah revealed in it; and whoever did
not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the
[5.48] And We have revealed to
you the Book with the truth, verifying what is before it of the Book and a
guardian over it, therefore judge between them by what Allah has revealed,
and do not follow their low desires (to turn away) from the truth that has
come to you; for every one of you did We appoint a law and a way, and if
Allah had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that
He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to
hasten to virtuous deeds; to Allah is your return, of all (of you), so He
will let you know that in which you differed;
[5.49] And that you should
judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their low
desires, and be cautious of them, lest they seduce you from part of what
Allah has revealed to you; but if they turn back, then know that Allah
desires to afflict them on account of some of their faults; and most
surely many of the people are transgressors.
[5.50] Is it then the judgment
of (the times of) ignorance that they desire? And who is better than Allah
to judge for a people who are sure?
[5.51] O you who believe! do
not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each
other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is
one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.
[5.52] But you will see those
in whose hearts is a disease hastening towards them, saying: We fear lest
a calamity should befall us; but it may be that Allah will bring the
victory or a punish ment from Himself, so that they shall be regretting on
account of what they hid in their souls.
[5.53] And those who believe
will say: Are these they who swore by Allah with the most forcible of
their oaths that they were most surely with you? Their deeds shall go for
nothing, so they shall become losers.
[5.54] O you who believe!
whoever from among you turns back from his religion, then Allah will bring
a people, He shall love them and they shall love Him, lowly before the
believers, mighty against the unbelievers, they shall strive hard in
Allah's way and shall not fear the censure of any censurer; this is
Allah's Face, He gives it to whom He pleases, and Allah is Ample-giving,
[5.55] Only Allah is your Vali
and His Apostle and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay
the poor-rate while they bow.
[5.56] And whoever takes Allah
and His apostle and those who believe for a guardian, then surely the
party of Allah are they that shall be triumphant.
[5.57] O you who believe! do
not take for guardians those who take your religion for a mockery and a
joke, from among those who were given the Book before you and the
unbelievers; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah if you are believers.
[5.58] And when you call to
prayer they make it a mockery and a joke; this is because they are a
people who do not understand.
[5.59] Say: O followers of the
Book! do you find fault with us (for aught) except that we believe in
Allah and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed before,
and that most of you are transgressors?
[5.60] Say: Shall I inform you
of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah? (Worse is he)
whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom He made apes
and swine, and he who served the Shaitan; these are worse in place and
more erring from the straight path.
[5.61] And when they come to
you, they say: We believe; and indeed they come in with unbelief and
indeed they go forth with it; and Allah knows best what they concealed.
[5.62] And you will see many of
them striving with one another to hasten in sin and exceeding the limits,
and their eating of what is unlawfully acquired; certainly evil is that
which they do.
[5.63] Why do not the learned
men and the doctors of law prohibit them from their speaking of what is
sinful and their eating of what is unlawfully acquired? Certainly evil is
that which they work.
[5.64] And the Jews say: The
hand of Allah is tied up! Their hands shall be shackled and they shall be
cursed for what they say. Nay, both His hands are spread out, He expends
as He pleases; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord will
certainly make many of them increase in inordinacy and unbelief; and We
have put enmity and hatred among them till the day of resurrection;
whenever they kindle a fire for war Allah puts it out, and they strive to
make mischief in the land; and Allah does not love the mischief-makers.
[5.65] And if the followers of
the Book had believed and guarded (against evil) We would certainly have
covered their evil deeds and We would certainly have made them enter
gardens of bliss
[5.66] And if they had kept up
the Taurat and the Injeel and that which was revealed to them from their
Lord, they would certainly have eaten from above them and from beneath
their feet there is a party of them keeping to the moderate course, and
(as for) most of them, evil is that which they do
[5.67] O Apostle! deliver what
has been revealed to you from your Lord; and if you do it not, then you
have not delivered His message, and Allah will protect you from the
people; surely Allah will not guide the unbelieving people.
[5.68] Say: O followers of the
Book! you follow no good till you keep up the Taurat and the Injeel and
that which is revealed to you from your Lord; and surely that which has
been revealed to you from your Lord shall make many of them increase in
inordinacy and unbelief; grieve not therefore for the unbelieving people.
[5.69] Surely those who believe
and those who are Jews and the Sabians and the Christians whoever believes
in Allah and the last day and does good-- they shall have no fear nor
shall they grieve.
[5.70] Certainly We made a
covenant with the children of Israel and We sent to them apostles;
whenever there came to them an apostle with what that their souls did not
desire, some (of them) did they call liars and some they slew.
[5.71] And they thought that
there would be no affliction, so they became blind and deaf; then Allah
turned to them mercifully, but many of them became blind and deaf; and
Allah is well seeing what they do.
[5.72] Certainly they
disbelieve who say: Surely Allah, He is the Messiah, son of Marium; and
the Messiah said: O Children of Israel! serve Allah, my Lord and your
Lord. Surely whoever associates (others) with Allah, then Allah has
forbidden to him the garden, and his abode is the fire; and there shall be
no helpers for the unjust.
[5.73] Certainly they
disbelieve who say: Surely Allah is the third (person) of the three; and
there is no god but the one [Allah], and if they desist not
from what they say, a painful chastisement shall befall those among them
[5.74] Will they not then turn
to Allah and ask His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[5.75] The Messiah, son of
Marium is but an apostle; apostles before him have indeed passed away; and
his mother was a truthful woman; they both used to eat food. See how We
make the communications clear to them, then behold, how they are turned
[5.76] Say: Do you serve
besides Allah that which does not control for you any harm, or any profit?
And Allah-- He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
[5.77] Say: O followers of the
Book! be not unduly immoderate in your religion, and do not follow the low
desires of people who went astray before and led many astray and went
astray from the right path.
[5.78] Those who disbelieved
from among the children of Israel were cursed by the tongue of Dawood and
Isa, son of Marium; this was because they disobeyed and used to exceed the
[5.79] They used not to forbid
each other the hateful things (which) they did; certainly evil was that
which they did.
[5.80] You will see many of
them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their
souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them
and in chastisement shall they abide.
[5.81] And had they believed in
Allah and the prophet and what was revealed to him, they would not have
taken them for friends but! most of them are transgressors.
[5.82] Certainly you will find
the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the
Jews and those who are polytheists, and you will certainly find the
nearest in friendship to those who believe (to be) those who say: We are
Christians; this is because there are priests and monks among them and
because they do not behave proudly.
[5.83] And when they hear what
has been revealed to the apostle you will see their eyes overflowing with
tears on account of the truth that they recognize; they say: Our Lord! we
believe, so write us down with the witnesses (of truth).
[5.84] And what (reason) have
we that we should not believe in Allah and in the truth that has come to
us, while we earnestly desire that our Lord should cause us to enter with
the good people?
[5.85] Therefore Allah rewarded
them on account of what they said, with gardens in which rivers flow to
abide in them; and this is the reward of those who do good (to others).
[5.86] And (as for) those who
disbelieve and reject Our communications, these are the companions of the
[5.87] O you who believe! do
not forbid (yourselves) the good things which Allah has made lawful for
you and do not exceed the limits; surely Allah does not love those who
exceed the limits.
[5.88] And eat of the lawful
and good (things) that Allah has given you, and be careful of (your duty
to) Allah, in Whom you believe.
[5.89] Allah does not call you
to account for what is vain in your oaths, but He calls you to account for
the making of deliberate oaths; so its expiation is the feeding of ten
poor men out of the middling (food) you feed your families with, or their
clothing, or the freeing of a neck; but whosoever cannot find (means) then
fasting for three days; this is the expiation of your oaths when you
swear; and guard your oaths. Thus does Allah make clear to you His
communications, that you may be Fateful.
[5.90] O you who believe!
intoxicants and games of chance and (sacrificing to) stones set up and
(dividing by) arrows are only an uncleanness, the Shaitan's work; shun it
therefore that you may be successful.
[5.91] The Shaitan only desires
to cause enmity and hatred to spring in your midst by means of intoxicants
and games of chance, and to keep you off from the remembrance of Allah and
from prayer. Will you then desist?
[5.92] And obey Allah and obey
the apostle and be cautious; but if you turn back, then know that only a
clear deliverance of the message is (incumbent) on Our apostle.
[5.93] On those who believe and
do good there is no blame for what they eat, when they are careful (of
their duty) and believe and do good deeds, then they are careful (of their
duty) and believe, then they are careful (of their duty) and do good (to
others), and Allah loves those who do good (to others).
[5.94] O you who believe! Allah
will certainly try you in respect of some game which your hands and your
lances can reach, that Allah might know who fears Him in secret; but
whoever exceeds the limit after this, he shall have a painful punishment.
[5.95] O you who believe! do
not kill game while you are on pilgrimage, and whoever among you shall
kill it intentionally, the compensation (of it) is the like of what he
killed, from the cattle, as two just persons among you shall judge, as an
offering to be brought to the Kaaba or the expiation (of it) is the
feeding of the poor or the equivalent of it in fasting, that he may taste
the unwholesome result of his deed; Allah has pardoned what is gone by;
and whoever returns (to it), Allah will inflict retribution on him; and
Allah is Mighty, Lord of Retribution.
[5.96] Lawful to you is the
game of the sea and its food, a provision for you and for the travellers,
and the game of the land is forbidden to you so long as you are on
pilgrimage, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, to Whom you shall be
[5.97] Allah has made the Kaaba,
the sacred house, a maintenance for the people, and the sacred month and
the offerings and the sacrificial animals with garlands; this is that you
may know that Allah knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in
the earth, and that Allah is the Knower of all things.
[5.98] Know that Allah is
severe in requiting (evil) and that Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[5.99] Nothing is (incumbent)
on the Apostle but to deliver (the message), and Allah knows what you do
openly and what you hide.
[5.100] Say: The bad and the
good are not equal, though the abundance of the bad may please you; so be
careful of (your duty to) Allah, O men of understanding, that you may be
[5.101] O you who believe! do
not put questions about things which if declared to you may trouble you,
and if you question about them when the Quran is being revealed, they
shall be declared to you; Allah pardons this, and Allah is Forgiving,
[5.102] A people before you
indeed asked such questions, and then became disbelievers on account of
[5.103] Allah has not ordained
(the making of) a bahirah or a saibah or a wasilah or a hami but those who
disbelieve fabricate a lie against Allah, and most of them do not
[5.104] And when it is said to
them, Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Apostle, they say: That
on which we found our fathers is sufficient for us. What! even though
their fathers knew nothing and did not follow the right way.
[5.105] O you who believe! take
care of your souls; he who errs cannot hurt you when you are on the right
way; to Allah is your return, of all (of you), so He will inform you of
what you did.
[5.106] O you who believe! call
to witness between you when death draws nigh to one of you, at the time of
making the will, two just persons from among you, or two others from among
others than you, if you are travelling in the land and the calamity of
death befalls you; the two (witnesses) you should detain after the prayer;
then if you doubt (them), they shall both swear by Allah, (saying): We
will not take for it a price, though there be a relative, and we will not
hide the testimony of Allah for then certainly we should be among the
[5.107] Then if it becomes
known that they both have been guilty of a sin, two others shall stand up
in their place from among those who have a claim against them, the two
nearest in kin; so they two should swear by Allah: Certainly our testimony
is truer than the testimony of those two, and we have not exceeded the
limit, for then most surely we should be of the unjust.
[5.108] This is more proper in
order that they should give testimony truly or fear that other oaths be
given after their oaths; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, and hear;
and Allah does not guide the transgressing people.
[5.109] On the day when Allah
will assemble the apostles, then say: What answer were you given? They
shall say: We have no knowledge, surely Thou art the great Knower of the
[5.110] When Allah will say: O
Isa son of Marium! Remember My favor on you and on your mother, when I
strengthened you I with the holy Spirit, you spoke to the people in the
cradle and I when of old age, and when I taught you the Book and the
wisdom and the Taurat and the Injeel; and when you determined out of clay
a thing like the form of a bird by My permission, then you breathed into
it and it became a bird by My permission, and you healed the blind and the
leprous by My permission; and when you brought forth the dead by My
permission; and when I withheld the children of Israel from you when you
came to them with clear arguments, but those who disbelieved among them
said: This is nothing but clear enchantment.
[5.111] And when I revealed to
the disciples, saying, Believe in Me and My apostle, they said: We believe
and bear witness that we submit (ourselves).
[5.112] When the disciples
said: O Isa son of Marium! will your Lord consent to send down to us food
