Al-Fath, Surah The Victory (Qur'an: Surat-48-Al-Fath)
Bismillaah ir rahmaan ir raheem
Surely We have given to you a manifest Conquest.
That Allah may forgive you of your past and future sins and complete His Blessing on you and deliver you to Sıratı Mustakîm (a Path directed to Allah).
And that Allah may help you with a mighty victory.
He it is Who sends down As-Sakînah (tranquility) in the hearts of the believers so that they may have more of Faith added to their Faith. Allah’s are the armies of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise.
That (He) may cause the believing men and the believing women to enter heavens under which the rivers flow to abide therein forever, and cover their evil deeds. That is indeed the Supreme Salvation in the presence of Allah.
And that He may torment the disbelieving men and the disbelieving women, and the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women. That they assumed about Allah with evil conjectures. May their evil (conjectures) turn on them. And Allah’s Wrath is upon them and He cursed them and prepared Hell for them. How terrible of a destination to reach.
And Allah’s is the armies of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise.
Surely We have sent you as a witness and as a bearer of glad tidings and as a Warner.
That you may believe in Allah and His Messenger, exalt Him and glorify Him morning and evening.
Surely those who swear allegiance to you do but swear allegiance to Allah. The Hand of Allah is on top of their hands (since Allah has manifested Himself in your body, He also has manifested Himself in your hand). Therefore whoever breaks (his covenant), he breaks it against his own soul (as he does not fulfill his vow, covenant, he causes his degrees to fall to negative), and whoever is faithful to his covenants with Allah (fulfills his oath, vow and covenant) then the Mighty Reward will be granted to him (the joy of this world and also heaven will be given).
Amongst the Arabs who lagged behind will say to you: “Our possessions and our families kept us occupied, so ask forgiveness for us”. They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say: “Who then has any power at all to prevent any thing (coming) from Allah if He intends to do you harm or if He intends to do you good? Nay (no way), Allah is Ever All-Aware of what you do”.
Nay! You rather assumed that the Messenger and the believers would not return to their families ever, and this (assumption) was made fair-seeming in your hearts. You assumed an evil conjecture and you became a people worthy to perish.
And whoever does not believe in Allah and His Messenger, then surely We have prepared for the disbelievers a blazing Fire (hell).
And Allah’s is the Dominion of the heavens and the earth. He forgives whom He wills and torments whom He wills, and Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Those who lagged behind (from the battle) will say when you go forth to take the bounty: “Let (allow) us (that) we may swear allegiance to you”. (They) want to change the Word of Allah. Say (to them): “You cannot swear allegiance to us. Allah ordered so before”. Then (they) will say: “Nay! You are jealous of us”. Nay, they do not understand but a little.
Say to the Bedouin Arabs who lagged behind that: “You shall be called (to fight) against a people possessing mighty prowess. Either you kill them, or they surrender. Then if you obey (Allah), Allah shall give you a handsome wage; and if you turn back as you turned back before, He shall torment you with a painful torment”.
There is no difficulty (responsibility) for the blind, the lame, and the sick. Whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, (Allah) puts them in heavens under which the rivers flow, and whoever turns back, torments with a painful torment.
Certainly Allah was pleased with the believers when they swore allegiance to you under that tree, and He knew what was in their hearts. So He sent down As-Sakînah (tranquility) on them and He rewarded them with a near conquest.
And there is abundant booty. They take them. And Allah is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise.
Allah has promised you much booty that you will take. So He has hastened for you this, and He has restrained the hands of others from you. And that it may be a Sign for the believers and that He may deliver you to Sıratı Mustakîm (the path directed to Allah).
And other (booty) that Allah encompasses which you have not yet reached and Allah has Power over all things.
And if those who disbelieve had fought you, they would certainly have turned their backs (they would have run away), then they would not have found any friend nor a helper.
This is the SunnetAllâh (Practice of Allah) that has been everlasting, and you cannot find a change in the SunnetAllâh.
And He it is Who held back their hands from you and your hands from them in the midst of Makkah, after He had made you victors over them. And Allah is Ever All-Seeing of what you do.
They are the disbelievers and (they) hindered you from Masjid-al Harâm and detained the sacrificial animals from reaching their place (of sacrifice). If there were not believing men and believing women, whom, you have not known yet that you will ruin (without knowing), thus if there was not an affliction to touch you from them without (your) knowledge (Allah would have allowed you to fight). (Allah not to allow the battle is) that Allah may include into His Mercy whomsoever He wills. If (the believers) had been separated, We would certainly have tormented those who disbelieved from among them with a painful torment.
When the disbelievers had set up in their hearts the zealotry of ignorance, then Allah sent down His Sakînah (calmness and tranquility) upon His Messenger and the believers, and the Word of Piety has been justified upon them (they deserved Piety). And they were well entitled to it (to be the owners of Piety) and they became worthy of it. And Allah is All-Knowing of everything.
Verily Allah has affirmed that the dream of His Messenger was the truth. If Allah wills, you shall most certainly enter Masjid-al Harâm (the Sacred Mosque), in security, having your heads shaved and (hair) shortened, without any fear. But as Allah knows what you do not know, He brought about a near conquest (to you) other than that (before that).
He it is Who sent His Messenger with Hidayet and the Righteous Religion that He may explain to all religions and Allah is All-Sufficient as a Witness.
The Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (Pbuh) and those who are with him are severe against the disbelievers, compassionate among themselves. You see them bowing down, prostrating themselves, and seeking Virtue and Pleasure from Allah. Their significance is the marks of prostration on their faces. These are their characteristics in the Torah and the Bible. Like the crop which sends forth its sprout, then makes it strong, therefore it becomes thick, finally grows on its stem, delighting the farmers. That He may enrage the disbelievers with them. And Allah has promised those among them who believe (who are âmenû, who wish to reach Allah while they are alive) and do improving deeds (that cleanse the soul’s heart) Forgiveness and a Mighty Wage.
