[009:069] Like those before you: they were mightier than you in power, and more abundant in wealth and children. They had enjoyed their portion (awhile), so enjoy your portion (awhile) as those before you enjoyed their portion (awhile); and you indulged in play and pastime (and in telling lies against Allh and His Messenger Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as they indulged in play and pastime. Such are they whose deeds are in vain in this world and in the Hereafter. Such are they who are the losers.


[009:070] Has not the story reached them of those before them? The people of Nh (Noah), 'd, and Thamd, the people of Ibrhm (Abraham), the dwellers of Madyan (Midian) and the cities overthrown [i.e. the people to whom Lt (Lot) preached]; to them came their Messengers with clear proofs. So it was not Allh Who wronged them, but they used to wrong themselves.


[009:071] The believers, men and women, are Auliy' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another; they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma'rf (i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all that Islm orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islm has forbidden); they perform As-Salt (the prayers), and give the Zakt (obligatory charity), and obey Allh and His Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]. Allh will have His Mercy on them. Surely, Allh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.


[009:072] Allh has promised the believers men and women, Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein forever, and beautiful mansions in Gardens of 'Adn (Eden Paradise). But the greatest bliss is the Good Pleasure of Allh. That is the supreme success.
