They will make excuses to you when you have returned to them. Say: “Make no excuses; by no means will we believe you. Indeed Allah has already informed us of the news (case) concerning you. Allah and His Messenger will see your doings. Then you shall be brought back to the All-Knower of the Unseen and the Seen, then He will inform you of what you used to do”.
They will swear to you by Allah when you return to them so that you may turn your faces away from them. So do turn your faces away from them. Surely, they are unclean and their abode is Hell as a recompense for what they used to earn.
They swear to you that you may be pleased with them. Even if you are pleased with them, surely Allah is not pleased with the Fâsiqûn people.
The Bedouins are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy and more disposed not to know the limits of what Allah has sent down to His Messenger. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise (owner of decision).
And of the Bedouins there are some who take what they spend to be a loss. And they watch for the changing of the time and bad times to be on you. May the calamity of evil be on them! And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
And of the Bedouins there are some who believe in Allah and the latter day (the day of reaching Allah before death) and take what they spend as means of nearness in the presence of Allah and in the Messenger’s prayers. Indeed these (spending in Allah’s Way) are a means of nearness for them, are they not? Allah will make them enter into His Mercy. Surely Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (the One who sends the Light of Mercy).
