[048:010] Verily, those who give Bai'ah (pledge) to you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]), they are giving Bai'ah (pledge) to All‚h. The Hand of All‚h is over their hands. Then whosoever breaks his pledge, breaks it only to his own harm; and whosoever fulfils what he has covenanted with All‚h, He will bestow on him a great reward.


[048:011] Those of the bedouins who lagged behind will say to you: "Our possessions and our families occupied us, so ask forgiveness for us." They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say: "Who then has any power at all (to intervene) on your behalf with All‚h, if He intends you hurt or intends you benefit? Nay, but All‚h is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.


[048:012] "Nay, but you thought that the Messenger [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] and the believers would never return to their families, and that was made fair-seeming in your hearts, and you did think an evil thought and you became a useless people going for destruction."


[048:013] And whosoever does not believe in All‚h and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]), then verily, We have prepared for the disbelievers a blazing Fire.


[048:014] And to All‚h belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. He forgives whom He wills, and punishes whom He wills. And All‚h is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.


[048:015] Those who lagged behind will say, when you set forth to take the spoils, "Allow us to follow you." They want to change All‚h's Words. Say: "You shall not follow us; thus All‚h has said beforehand." Then they will say: "Nay, you envy us." Nay, but they understand not except a little.
