Sura At-Taghabun (Mutual Loss and Gain)
Sheikh / Mohammad Ayyoob

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    64:1 All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth glorifies God; to Him belongs supreme power and to Him belongs praise, and He is Able to do all things.

    64:2 It is He Who created you, but one of you is a disbeliever and one of you is a believer, and God is Seer of what you do.

    64:3 He created the heavens and the earth with truth, and He shaped you and made good your shapes, and to Him is the journeying.

    64:4 He knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and He knows what you conceal and what you reveal. And God is Aware of what is in the breasts (of men).

    64:5-6 Has not the story reached you of those who disbelieved of old and so did taste the ill effects of their conduct, and theirs will be a painful punishment. That was because their Messengers (from God) kept coming to them with clear proofs (of God"s supreme power), but they said: Shall mere mortals guide us? So they disbelieved and turned away, and God was independent (of them). God is Absolute, Owner of praise.

    64:7-8 Those who disbelieve assert that they will not be raised again. Say (to them, O Muhammad): Yes, verily, by my Lord! You will be raised again and then you will be informed of what you did; and that is easy for God. So believe in God and His Messenger and the light, which We have revealed. And God is Aware of what you do.

    64:9 The day when He shall gather you to the Day of Assembling, that will be a Day of Deprivation. And whoever believes in God and does right, He will expiate from him his evil deeds and will bring him into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, therein to abide forever. That is the supreme triumph.

    64:10 But those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations, such are inhabitants of the Fire; they will abide therein – an evil journey"s end!

    64:11 No calamity befalls, except by God"s leave. And whosoever believes in God, He guides his heart. And God is Knower of all things.

    64:12-13 Obey God and obey His Messenger; but if you turn away, then the duty of Our Messenger is only to convey (the message) plainly. God! There is no God except Him. In God, therefore, let believers put their trust.

    64:14 O you who believe! Lo! Among your wives and your children there are enemies for you, therefore beware of them. And if you efface and overlook and forgive, then lo! God is Forgiving, Merciful.

    64:15 Your wealth and your children are only a temptation, whereas God! With Him is an immense reward.

    64:16 So keep your duty to God as best you can, and listen, and obey, and spend, that is better for your souls. And whoever is saved from his own greed, such are the successful.

    64:17 If you lend to God a goodly loan, He will double it for you and will forgive you, for God is Responsive, Forbearing,

    64:18 Knower of the invisible and the visible, the Mighty, the Wise.
