048 - Soorah al-Fat.h - (The Victory) - [Madanee]
In the Name of All‚h, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[048:001] Verily, We have given you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) a manifest victory.
[048:002] That All‚h may forgive you your sins of the past and the future, and complete His Favour on you, and guide you on a Straight Path,
[048:003] And that All‚h may help you with strong help.
[048:004] He it is Who sent down As-SakÓnah (calmness and tranquillity) into the hearts of the believers, that they may grow more in Faith along with their (present) Faith. And to All‚h belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and All‚h is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise.
[048:005] That He may admit the believing men and the believing women to Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise) to abide therein forever, and He may expiate from them their sins; and that is with All‚h a supreme success,
[048:006] And that He may punish the Mun‚fiqŻn (hypocrites) men and women, and also the MushrikŻn men and women, who think evil thoughts about All‚h, for them is a disgraceful torment. And the Anger of All‚h is upon them, and He has cursed them and prepared Hell for them Ė and worst indeed is that destination.
[048:007] And to All‚h belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth. And All‚h is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise.
[048:008] Verily, We have sent you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner.
[048:009] In order that you (O mankind) may believe in All‚h and His Messenger [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam], and that you assist and honour him (), and (that you) glorify (All‚h's) praises morning and afternoon.
(V.48:2) Narrated Al-MughÓrah: The Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] used to offer night prayers till his feet became swollen. Somebody said to him, "All‚h has forgiven you your sins of the past and the future." On that, He said, "Shouldn't I be a thankful slave of All‚h?"
