[009:032] They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish All‚h's Light (with which Muhammad has been sent Ė Isl‚mic Monotheism) with their mouths, but All‚h will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the K‚firŻn (disbelievers) hate (it).


[009:033] It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) with guidance and the religion of truth (Isl‚m), to make it superior over all religions even though the MushrikŻn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of All‚h) hate (it).


[009:034] O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the (Christian) monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood, and hinder (them) from the way of All‚h (i.e. All‚h's religion of Isl‚mic Monotheism). And those who hoard up gold and silver (Al-Kanz: the money, the Zak‚t (obligatory charity) of which has not been paid) and spend them not in the way of All‚h, announce to them a painful torment.


[009:035] On the Day when that (Al-Kanz: money, gold and silver, the Zak‚t of which has not been paid) will be heated in the fire of Hell and with it will be branded their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, (and it will be said to them:) "This is the treasure which you hoarded for yourselves. Now taste of what you used to hoard."


[009:036] Verily, the number of months with All‚h is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by All‚h on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Isl‚mic calendar). That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein, and fight against the MushrikŻn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of All‚h) collectively as they fight against you collectively. But know that All‚h is with those who are Al-MuttaqŻn (the pious. See V.2:2).
