[005:037] They will long to get out of the Fire, but never will they get out therefrom; and theirs will be a lasting torment.


[005:038] And (as for) the male thief and the female thief, cut off (from the wrist joint) their (right) hands as a recompense for that which they committed, a punishment by way of example from All‚h. And All‚h is All-Powerful, All-Wise.


[005:039] But whosoever repents after his crime and does righteous good deeds (by obeying All‚h), then verily, All‚h will pardon him (accept his repentance). Verily, All‚h is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.


[005:040] Know you not that to All‚h (Alone) belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! He punishes whom He wills and He forgives whom He wills. And All‚h is Able to do all things.


[005:041] O Messenger (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam])! Let not those who hurry to fall into disbelief grieve you, of such who say: "We believe" with their mouths but their hearts have no Faith. And of the Jews are men who listen much and eagerly to lies Ė listen to others who have not come to you. They change the words from their places; they say, "If you are given this, take it, but if you are not given this, then beware!" And whomsoever All‚h wants to put in Al-Fitnah (error, because of his rejecting of Faith), you can do nothing for him against All‚h. Those are the ones whose hearts All‚h does not want to purify (from disbelief and hypocrisy); for them there is a disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a great torment.
