AL-MUNĀFIQŪN

The Hypocrites

المنافقون

Medinan (surah 63 • 11 ayahs)

»The surah that declares that God bears witness that the false profession of faith by THE HYPOCRITES is uttered only as a screen to hide their duplicity. It takes its name from its main topic, “the hypocrites” (munāfiqūn). The surah warns the believers about the treachery of the hypocrites and describes their behaviour in some detail. A specific occasion on which the hypocrites tried to stop anyone donating money to believers is described (verse 7 ff.) and God calls on the Muslims to compensate for this by giving more of their own funds to the needy (verse 9 ff.).«

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH,

THE ALL-BENEFICENT, THE ALL-MERCIFUL.

القرآن:

إذا جاءك المنافقون قالوا نشهد إنك لرسول الله ۗ والله يعلم إنك لرسوله والله يشهد إن المنافقين لكاذبون

TRANSLATION:

When the hypocrites come to you

they say, ‘We bear witness

that you are indeed the apostle of Allah.’

Allah knows that you are indeed His Apostle,

and Allah bears witness that

the hypocrites are indeed liars.

2

القرآن:

اتخذوا أيمانهم جنة فصدوا عن سبيل الله ۚ إنهم ساء ما كانوا يعملون

TRANSLATION:

They make a shield of their oaths,

and bar from the way of Allah.

Evil indeed is what they used to do.

3

القرآن:

ذلك بأنهم آمنوا ثم كفروا فطبع على قلوبهم فهم لا يفقهون

TRANSLATION:

That is because they believed and then disbelieved,

so their hearts were sealed.

Hence they do not understand.

4

القرآن:

۞ وإذا رأيتهم تعجبك أجسامهم ۖ وإن يقولوا تسمع لقولهم ۖ كأنهم خشب مسندة ۖ يحسبون كل صيحة عليهم ۚ هم العدو فاحذرهم ۚ قاتلهم الله ۖ أنى يؤفكون

TRANSLATION:

When you see them, their bodies impress you,

and if they speak, you listen to their speech.

Yet they are like dry logs set reclining [against a wall].

They suppose every cry is directed against them.

They are the enemy, so beware of them.

May Allah assail them, where do they stray?!

5

القرآن:

وإذا قيل لهم تعالوا يستغفر لكم رسول الله لووا رءوسهم ورأيتهم يصدون وهم مستكبرون

TRANSLATION:

When they are told, ‘Come,

that Allah’s Apostle may plead for forgiveness for you,’

they twist their heads,

and you see them turn away while they are disdainful.

6

القرآن:

سواء عليهم أستغفرت لهم أم لم تستغفر لهم لن يغفر الله لهم ۚ إن الله لا يهدي القوم الفاسقين

TRANSLATION:

It is the same for them

whether you plead for forgiveness for them,

or do not plead for forgiveness for them:

Allah will never forgive them.

Indeed Allah does not guide the transgressing lot.

7

القرآن:

هم الذين يقولون لا تنفقوا على من عند رسول الله حتى ينفضوا ۗ ولله خزائن السماوات والأرض ولكن المنافقين لا يفقهون

TRANSLATION:

They are the ones who say, ‘Do not spend

on those who are with the Apostle of Allah

until they scatter off.’

Yet to Allah belong the treasuries of the heavens

and the earth,

but the hypocrites do not understand.

8

القرآن:

يقولون لئن رجعنا إلى المدينة ليخرجن الأعز منها الأذل ۚ ولله العزة ولرسوله وللمؤمنين ولكن المنافقين لا يعلمون

TRANSLATION:

They say, ‘When we return to the city,

the mighty will surely expel the abased from it.’1

Yet all might belongs to Allah and His Apostle,

and the faithful,

but the hypocrites do not know.

Or, ‘the mighty will surely expel the weak from it.’

9

القرآن:

يا أيها الذين آمنوا لا تلهكم أموالكم ولا أولادكم عن ذكر الله ۚ ومن يفعل ذلك فأولئك هم الخاسرون

TRANSLATION:

O you who have faith!

Do not let your possessions and children distract you

from the remembrance of Allah,

and whoever does that

—it is they who are the losers.

10

القرآن:

وأنفقوا من ما رزقناكم من قبل أن يأتي أحدكم الموت فيقول رب لولا أخرتني إلى أجل قريب فأصدق وأكن من الصالحين

TRANSLATION:

Spend from what We have provided you

before death comes to any of you,

whereat he will say, ‘My Lord,

why did You not respite me for a short time

so that I might have given charity

and become one of the righteous!’

11

القرآن:

ولن يؤخر الله نفسا إذا جاء أجلها ۚ والله خبير بما تعملون

TRANSLATION:

But Allah shall never respite a soul

when its time has come,

and Allah is well aware of what you do.
