Have you not seen that Allah knows whatever is in the heavens and in the earth? There is no secret talk between the three but He (Allah) is the fourth of them, and nor (a talk) of five but He (Allah) is the sixth of them. And less than this or more than this wheresoever they may be but He (Allah) is with them. Later on the Day of Resurrection He will inform them of what they did. Surely Allah is All-Knowing of all things.
Have you not seen those who were forbidden of secret talk? Then they return to what they are forbidden. They talk amongst each other on the topics of sin, enmity and rebellion to the Messenger. And when they came to you, they greeted you with a greeting with which Allah does not greet you. And they say amongst themselves: “If that’s the case (if he is a true prophet) should Allah not torment us for what we say”? Hell is sufficient for them. They will prop themselves against it (they will be thrown in it). How evil indeed is that destination.
O you who believe (those who believe in Allah, have faith in Him)! When you talk secretly amongst each other, do not talk on the topics of sin, enmity and rebellion to the Messenger in secrecy. Talk about Al-Birr and Taqwâ (piety). And become the owners of piety towards Allah, to Whom you shall be gathered (in His Presence).
Secret counsels (whispering conspiracies) are from Satan which is to cause those who believe (who wish to reach Allah before death) to grieve. And it cannot harm them in the least except with Allah’s Permission. Therefore the believers should put their trust in Allah.
O you who believe (who are âmenû)! When it is said to you in assemblies: “Make room (for others to sit)”, then make room. Allah will also give you (ample) room. And when it is said: “Rise up!”, then rise up immediately. Allah increases the degrees of those of you who believe (who are âmenû, who wish to reach Allah before death), and given knowledge. And Allah is All-Aware of what you do.
