The Sabikûn-el Evvelîn (out of those who competed in good works, those who are charged with and authorized to the Salâh by delivering their free will to Allah at the Rank of Irshad) were of the Emigrants (those who migrated from Makkah to Al-Madinah) and the Helpers (the citizens of Al-Madinah who helped the Emigrants) and those who depended on them (emigrants and helpers) with Ihsân (blessings), (Companions were at Irshad post and others depended on them). Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him. Allah has prepared for them Heavens under which the rivers flow, to abide in them forever. That is the Supreme Reward.
And among those around you of the Bedouins are hypocrites, and from the people of the city some are accustomed to hypocrisy. You do not know them. We know them. We will torment them twice, then shall they be turned back to a tremendous torment.
And others (some of those who have remained behind from the war) have confessed their sins. They have mixed an improving deed and an evil one. It is hoped that Allah will accept their repentance. Surely Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Take alms out of their property, and clean and cleanse them thereby and pray for them; surely your prayer is a relief (peace) to them. And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
Do they not know that Allah accepts repentance from His servants and takes the alms. And verily Allah is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.
Say: “Do (whatever you want). Allah, His Messenger and the believers will see your deeds. You shall be brought back to the Knower of the Unseen and the Seen, then He will inform you of what you used to do”.
And the others deferred until the command of Allah. He will either torment them or He will turn to them in forgiveness. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
