[009:080] Whether you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) ask forgiveness for them (hypocrites) or ask not forgiveness for them (and even) if you ask seventy times for their forgiveness Allh will not forgive them because they have disbelieved in Allh and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]). And Allh guides not those people who are Fsiqn (rebellious, disobedient to Allh).


[009:081] Those who stayed away (from Tabuk expedition) rejoiced in their staying behind the Messenger of Allh [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]; they hated to strive and fight with their properties and their lives in the Cause of Allh, and they said: "March not forth in the heat." Say: "The fire of Hell is more intense in heat;" if only they could understand!


[009:082] So let them laugh a little and (they will) cry much as a recompense of what they used to earn (by committing sins).


[009:083] If Allh brings you back to a party of them (the hypocrites), and they ask your permission to go out (to fight), say: "Never shall you go out with me nor fight an enemy with me; you were pleased to sit (inactive) on the first occasion, then you sit (now) with those who lag behind."


[009:084] And never (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allh and His Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam], and died while they were Fsiqn (rebellious, disobedient to Allh and His Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]).


[009:085] And let not their wealth or their children amaze you. Allh's Plan is to punish them with these things in this world, and that their souls shall depart (die) while they are disbelievers.


[009:086] And when a Srah (chapter from the Qur'n) is revealed, enjoining them to believe in Allh and to strive hard and fight along with His Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam], the wealthy among them ask your leave to exempt them (from Jihd) and say, "Leave us (behind), we would be with those who sit (at home)."
