Let not then their property and their children impress you. Allah only wishes to torment them with these in this world’s life and that their souls to depart while they are disbelievers.
They swear by Allah that they are most surely of you, and they are not of you. They are a people who are sissy.
If they could find a shelter or caves or a place to enter into, they would certainly have turned thereto, running away in all haste.
And of them there are those who criticize you with respect to the alms. So if they are given from it (from alms, booty) they are pleased, and if they are not given from it, behold, they are full of rage.
And if they had been content with what Allah and His Messenger gave them (of booty), they would have said: “Allah is Sufficient for us; Allah will give us of His Virtue, and (so will) His Messenger”. Surely, we are desirous toward Allah.
Zakat is for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect (Zakat). And for those whose hearts will be brought together (for Islam) and for slaves and for those in debt and for (those) on the Way of Allah and for the travelers - an obligation by Allah. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
There are some of them who persecute the Prophet say: “He is (like) an ear (he listens to everything told and believes it)”. Say: “He is an ear of goodness for you (He hears what you say, accepts it; he is an ear of goodness because he does not deny you and not because he does not know it)”. He believes in Allah and has faith in the believers. And he is a mercy for those of you who believe (who are âmenû). For those who persecute the Messenger of Allah (those who say improper words to him, who criticize him) there is a painful torment.
