Chapter 3 - Sourat Al - Imran "the family of Imran"
In the name of allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[3.1] Alif Lam Mim.
[3.2] allah, (there is) no god but He, the Everliving, the Self-subsisting by Whom all things subsist
[3.3] He has revealed to you the Book with truth, verifying that which is before it, and He revealed the Taurat = (Torah) and the A-njel = (Jesus' Gospel) aforetime, a guidance for the people, and He sent the Furqan.
Accurate translation: [3.3] He has revealed to you the Book with truth, verifying in his hands, and He revealed the Taurat = (Torah) and the A-njel = (Jesus' Gospel).]
[Note: The word (verifying that which is before it) it should be in verse [3.4].
And the word (aforetime, a guidance for the people, and He sent the Furqan) it belongs to verse [3.4] also.]
[Note: the word [Book] is possible meant for the koran or other?) and the word Furqan means "Quran" for some Scholars and it means "the criterion between truth and falsehood" also. In verse 3:3 and 3:4, there are four items mentioned: the Book, the Torah, Jesus' gospel, and the Furqan. It is understood about Jesus' gospel and the Torah, but about the book and the Furqan are confusing. The Quran once mentions that the Christians are the followers of the book and another time they are the followers of the Injeel = Jesus' gospel. Other times, the Quran mentions that the Jews are the followers of the book and another time the Jews are the followers of the Torah. And this time, allah send the Furqan, which i can't say it meanest to be the Quran. You decide]
[3.4] Surely they who disbelieve in the communications of Allah they shall have a severe chastisement; and Allah is Mighty, the Lord of retribution.
translation: [3.4] verifying that
which is before it
aforetime, a guidance for the people, and He sent the Furqan. Surely, who
they disbelieve in the communications of Allah they shall have a severe chastisement; and Allah is Mighty, the Lord of retribution.
[3.12] Say to those who disbelieve: You shall be vanquished, and driven together to hell; and evil is the resting-place.
[3.13] Indeed there was a sign for you in the two hosts (which) met together in encounter; one party fighting = (killing) in the way of allah and the other unbelieving, whom they saw twice as.many as themselves with the sight of the eye and allah strengthens with His aid whom He pleases; most surely there is a lesson in this for those who have sight. [Note: the word fighting in koran = (quran) Arabic version is = (killing)].
[3.26] Say: O allah, Master of the Kingdom! Thou givest the kingdom to whomsoever Thou pleasest and takest away the kingdom from whomsoever Thou pleasest, and Thou exaltest whom Thou pleasest and abasest whom Thou pleasest in Thine hand is the good; surety, Thou hast power over all things.
[3.27] Thou makest the night to pass into the day and Thou makest the day to pass into the night, and Thou bringest forth the living from the dead and Thou bringest forth the dead from the living, and Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou pleasest without measure.
[3.28] Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and allah makes you cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and to allah is the eventual coming.
[3.29] Say: Whether you hide what is in your hearts or manifest it, allah knows it, and He knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and allah has power over all things.
[3.30] On the day that every soul shall find present what it has done of good and what it has done of evil, it shall wish that between it and that (evil) there were a long duration of time; and allah makes you to be cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and allah is Compassionate to the servants.
[3.43] O Marium = (Mary)! keep to obedience to your Lord and humble yourself, and bow down with those who bow.
[3.44] This is of the announcements relating to the unseen which We reveal to you; and you were not with them when they cast their pens (to decide) which of them should have Marium = (Mary) in his charge, and you were not with them when they contended one with another.
[3.45] When the angels said: O Marium = (Mary), surely allah gives you good news with a Word from Him (of one) whose name is the '. Messiah,
Isa = (Jesus) son of Marium = (Mary), worthy of regard in this world and the hereafter and of those who are made near (to allah).
[3.46] And he shall speak to the people when in the cradle and when of old age, and (he shall be) one of the good ones.
[3.47] She said: My Lord! when shall there be a son (born) to I me, and man has not touched me? He said: Even so, allah creates what He pleases; when He has decreed a matter, He only says to it, Be, and it is.
[3.48] And He will teach him the Book and the wisdom and the Taurat = (Torah) and the A-njel = (Gospel) = (Jesus' Gospel).
[3.49] And [(make Isa
= (Jesus)] an apostle to the children of Israel: That I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I determine
for you out of dust like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with allah's permission and I heal the blind and the leprous, and bring the dead to life with allah's permission and I inform you of what you should eat and what you should store in your houses; most surely there is a sign in this for you, if you are believers.
[3.57] And as to those who believe and do good deeds, He will pay them fully their rewards; and allah does not love the unjust.
[3.58] This We recite to you of the communications and the wise reminder.
[3.59] Surely the likeness of Isa = (Jesus) is with allah as the likeness of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, Be, and he was.
[3.60] (This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of the disputers.
[3.61] But whoever disputes with you in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our near people and your near people, then let us be earnest in prayer, and pray for the curse of allah on the liars.
[3.62] Most surely this is the true explanation, and there is no god but allah; and most surely allah-- He is the Mighty, the Wise.
[3.63] But if they turn back, then surely allah knows the mischief-makers.
[3.64] Say: O followers of the Book! come to an equitable proposition between us and you that we shall not serve any but allah and (that) we shall not associate aught with Him, and (that) some of us shall not take others for lords besides allah; but if they turn back, then say: Bear witness that we are muslims.
[3.65] O followers of the Book! why do you dispute about Ibrahim, when the Taurat and the A-njel = (Gospel) = (Jesus' Gospel) were not revealed till after him; do you not then understand?
followers of the Book probably are the Christians. Many verses in the koran = (quran)
indicate the followers of the Book as moslems = (muslims).]
[3.66] Behold! you are they who disputed about that of which you had knowledge; why then do you dispute about that of which you have no knowledge? And allah knows while you do not know.
[3.67] Ibrahim = (Abraham) was not a Jew nor a
Christian but he was (an) upright (man), a muslim, and he was not one of the
polytheists = (Moushrekeen) = (Christians) = (Trinitarians).
[3.68] Most surely the nearest of people to Ibrahim are those who followed him and this Prophet and those who believe and allah is the guardian of the believers.
[3.69] A party of the followers of the Book desire that they should lead you astray, and they lead not astray but themselves, and they do not perceive.
[3.74] He specially chooses for His mercy whom He pleases; and allah is the Lord of mighty grace.
[3.75] And among the followers of the Book there are some such that if you entrust one (of them) with a heap of wealth, he shall pay it back to you; and among them there are some such that if you entrust one (of them) with a dinar he shall not pay it back to you except so long as you remain firm in demanding it; this is because they say: There is not upon us in the matter of the unlearned people any way (to reproach); and they tell a lie against allah while they know.
[3.76] Yea, whoever fulfills his promise and guards (against evil)-- then surely allah loves those who guard (against evil).
[3.84] Say: We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us, and what was revealed to Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq and Yaqoub and the tribes, and what was given to
Musa = (Moses) and Isa = (Jesus) and to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make any distinction between any of them, and to Him do we submit.
[3.85] And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.
[3.91] Surely, those who
disbelieve and die while they are unbelievers, the earth full of gold shall not
be accepted from one of them, though he should offer to ransom himself with it,
these it is who shall have a painful chastisement, and they shall have no
[3.92] By no means shall you attain to righteousness until you spend (benevolently) out of what you love; and whatever thing you spend, allah surely knows it.
[3.93] All food was lawful to the children of Israel except that which Israel had forbidden to himself, before the Taurat was revealed. Say: Bring then the Taurat and read it, if you are truthful.
[3.94] Then whoever fabricates a lie against allah after this, these it is that are the unjust.
[3.95] Say: allah has spoken the truth, therefore follow the religion of Ibrahim, the upright one; and he was not one of the polytheists = (Moushrekeen) = (Christians) = (Trinitarians)
[3.157] And if you are slain in the way of Allah or you die, certainly forgiveness from Allah and mercy is better than what they amass.
[3.158] And if indeed you die or you are slain, certainly to Allah shall you be gathered together.
[3.159] Thus it is due to mercy from Allah that you deal with them gently, and had you been rough, hard hearted, they would certainly have dispersed from around you; pardon them therefore and ask pardon for them, and take counsel with them in the affair; so when you have decided, then place your trust in Allah; surely Allah loves those who trust.
[3.160] If Allah assists you, then there is none that can overcome you, and if He forsakes you, who is there then that can assist you after Him? And on Allah should the believers rely.
[3.161] And it is not attributable to a prophet that he should act unfaithfully; and he who acts unfaithfully shall bring that in respect of which he has acted unfaithfully on the day of resurrection; then shall every soul be paid back fully what it has earned, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly.
[3.162] Is then he who follows the pleasure of Allah like him who has made himself deserving of displeasure from Allah, and his abode is hell; and it is an evil destination.
[3.163] There are (varying) grades with Allah, and Allah sees what they do.
[3.164] Certainly Allah conferred a benefit upon the believers when He raised among them an Apostle from among themselves, reciting to them His communications and purifying them, and teaching them the Book and the wisdom, although before that they were surely in manifest error.
[3.165] What! when a misfortune befell you, and you had certainly afflicted (the unbelievers) with twice as much, you began to say: Whence is this? Say: It is from yourselves; surely Allah has power over all things.
[3.166] And what befell you on the day when the two armies met (at Ohud) was with Allah's knowledge, and that He might know the believers.
[3.167] And that He might know the hypocrites; and it was said to them: Come, fight = (kill) in allah's way, or defend yourselves. They said: If we knew fighting = (killing), we would certainly have followed you. They were on that day much nearer to unbelief than to belief. They say with their mouths what is not in their hearts, and allah best knows what they conceal. [Note: the word fight in Arabic koran = (quran) is kill]
[3.168] Those who said of their brethren whilst they (themselves) held back: Had they obeyed us, they would not have been killed. Say: Then avert death from yourselves if you speak the truth.
[3.170] Rejoicing in what Allah has given them out of His grace and they rejoice for the sake of those who, (being left) behind them, have not yet joined them, that they shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve.
[3.171] They rejoice on account of favor from Allah and (His) grace, and that Allah will not waste the reward of the believers.
[3.172] (As for) those who responded (at Ohud) to the call of Allah and the Apostle after the wound had befallen them, those among them who do good (to others) and guard (against evil)shall have a great reward.
[3.173] Those to whom the people said: Surely men have gathered against you, therefore fear them, but this increased their faith, and they said: Allah is sufficient for us and most excellent is the Protector.
[3.174] So they returned with favor from Allah and (His) grace, no evil touched them and they followed the pleasure of Allah; and Allah is the Lord of mighty grace.
[3.175] It is only the Shaitan that causes you to fear from his friends, but do not fear them, and fear Me if you are believers.
[3.176] And let not those grieve you who fall into unbelief hastily; surely they can do no harm to Allah at all; Allah intends that He should not give them any portion in the hereafter, and they shall have a grievous chastisement.
[3.177] Surely those who have bought unbelief at the price of faith shall do no harm at all to Allah, and they shall have a painful chastisement.
[3.178] And let not those who disbelieve think that Our granting them respite is better for their souls; We grant them respite only that they may add to their sins; and they shall have a disgraceful chastisement.
[3.179] On no account will Allah leave the believers in the condition which you are in until He separates the evil from the good; nor is Allah going to make you acquainted with the unseen, but Allah chooses of His apostles whom He pleases; therefore believe in Allah and His apostles; and if you believe and guard (against evil), then you shall have a great reward.
[3.180] And let not those deem, who are niggardly in giving away that which Allah has granted them out of His grace, that it is good for them; nay, it is worse for them; they shall have that whereof they were niggardly made to cleave to their necks on the resurrection day; and Allah's is the heritage of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is aware of what you do.
[3.181] Allah has certainly heard the saying of those who said: Surely Allah is poor and we are rich. I will record what they say, and their killing the prophets unjustly, and I will say: Taste the chastisement of burning.
[3.182] This is for what your own hands have sent before and because Allah is not in the least unjust to the servants.
[3.183] (Those are they) who said: Surely Allah has enjoined us that we should not believe in any apostle until he brings us an offering which the fire consumes. Say: Indeed, there came to you apostles before me with clear arguments and with that which you demand; why then did you kill them if you are truthful?
[3.184] But if they reject you, so indeed were rejected before you apostles who came with clear arguments and scriptures and the illuminating book.
Every soul shall taste of death, and you shall only be paid fully your reward on the resurrection day; then whoever is removed far away from the fire and is made to enter the garden he indeed has attained the object; and the life of this world is nothing but a provision of vanities.
[3.186] You shall certainly be tried respecting your wealth and your souls, and you shall certainly hear from those who have been given the Book before you and from those who are polytheists much annoying talk; and if you are patient and guard (against evil), surely this is one of the affairs (which should be) determined upon.
[3.187] And when Allah made a covenant with those who were given the Book: You shall certainly make it known to men and you shall not hide it; but they cast it behind their backs and took a small price for it; so evil is that which they buy.
[3.188] Do not think those who rejoice for what they have done and love that they should be praised for what they have not done-- so do by no means think them to be safe from the chastisement, and they shall have a painful chastisement.
[3.189] And Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and Allah has power over all things.
[3.190] Most surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day there are signs for men who understand.
[3.191] Those who remember Allah standing and sitting and lying on their sides and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: Our Lord! Thou hast not created this in vain! Glory be to Thee; save us then from the chastisement of the fire:
[3.192] Our Lord! surely whomsoever Thou makest enter the fire, him Thou hast indeed brought to disgrace, and there shall be no helpers for the unjust:
[3.193] Our Lord! surely we have heard a preacher calling to the faith, saying: Believe in your Lord, so we did believe; Our Lord! forgive us therefore our faults, and cover our evil deeds and make us die with the righteous.
[3.194] Our Lord! and grant us what Thou hast promised us by Thy apostles; and disgrace us not on the day of resurrection; surely Thou dost not fail to perform the promise.
[3.195] So their Lord accepted their prayer: That I will not waste the work of a worker among you, whether male or female, the one of you being from the other; they, therefore, who fled and were turned out of their homes and persecuted in My way and who fought and were slain, I will most certainly cover their evil deeds, and I will most certainly make them enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; a reward from Allah, and with Allah is yet better reward.
[3.196] Let it not deceive you that those who disbelieve go to and fro in the cities fearlessly.
[3.197] A brief enjoyment! then their abode is hell, and evil is the resting-place.
[3.198] But as to those who are careful of (their duty to) their Lord, they shall have gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding in them; an entertainment from their Lord, and that which is with Allah is best for the righteous.
[3.199] And most surely of the followers of the Book there are those who believe in Allah and (in) that which has been revealed to you and (in) that which has been revealed to them, being lowly before Allah; they do not take a small price for the communications of Allah; these it is that have their reward with their Lord; surely Allah is quick in reckoning.
[3.200] O you who believe! be patient and excel in patience and remain steadfast, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, that you may be successful.
