[058:007] Have you not seen that Allh knows whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth? There is no Najw (secret counsel) of three but He is their fourth (with His Knowledge, while He Himself is over the Throne, over the seventh heaven), nor of five but He is their sixth (with His Knowledge), nor of less than that or more but He is with them (with His Knowledge) wheresoever they may be. And afterwards on the Day of Resurrection He will inform them of what they did. Verily, Allh is All-Knower of everything.


[058:008] Have you not seen those who were forbidden to hold secret counsel, and afterwards returned to that which they had been forbidden, and conspired together for sin and wrongdoing and disobedience to the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]). And when they come to you, they greet you with a greeting wherewith Allh greets you not, and say within themselves: "Why should Allh punish us not for what we say?" Hell will be sufficient for them; they will burn therein. And worst indeed is that destination!


[058:009] O you who believe! When you hold secret counsel, do it not for sin and wrongdoing, and disobedience towards the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), but do it for Al-Birr (righteousness) and At-Taqw (virtues and piety); and fear Allh to Whom you shall be gathered.


[058:010] Secret counsel (conspiracy) is only from Shaitn (Satan), in order that he may cause grief to the believers. But he cannot harm them in the least, except as Allh permits. And in Allh let the believers put their trust.


[058:011] O you who believe! When you are told to make room in the assemblies, (spread out and) make room. Allh will give you (ample) room (from His Mercy). And when you are told to rise up [for prayers, or Jihd (holy fighting in Allh's Cause), or for any other good deed], rise up. Allh will exalt in degree those of you who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. And Allh is Well-Acquainted with what you do.
