[059:004] That is because they opposed Allh and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]). And whosoever opposes Allh, then verily, Allh is Severe in punishment.


[059:005] What you (O Muslims) cut down of the palm trees (of the enemy), or you left them standing on their stems, it was by the Leave of Allh, and in order that He might disgrace the Fsiqn (the rebellious, the disobedient to Allh).


[059:006] And what Allh gave as booty (Fai') to His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) from them for this you made no expedition with either cavalry or camelry. But Allh gives power to His Messengers over whomsoever He wills. And Allh is Able to do all things.


[059:007] What Allh gave as booty (Fai') to His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) from the people of the townships it is for Allh, His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), the kindred (of Messenger Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), the orphans, Al-Maskn (the needy), and the wayfarer, in order that it may not become a fortune used by the rich among you. And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it). And fear Allh; verily, Allh is Severe in punishment.


[059:008] (And there is also a share in this booty) for the poor emigrants, who were expelled from their homes and their property, seeking bounties from Allh and to please Him, and helping Allh (i.e. helping His religion Islamic Monotheism) and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]). Such are indeed the truthful (to what they say).


[059:009] And those who, before them, had homes (in Al-Madinah) and had adopted the Faith, love those who emigrate to them, and have no jealousy in their breasts for that which they have been given (from the booty of Ban An-Nadr), and give them (emigrants) preference over themselves even though they were in need of that. And whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, such are they who will be the successful.




(V.59:7) Narrated 'Alqamah: 'Abdullh (bin Mas'd) said."Allh curses those ladies who practise tatooing and those who get themselves tatooed, and those ladies who get their hair removed from their eyebrows and faces except the beard and moustache, and those who make artificial spaces between their teeth in order to look more beautiful whereby they change Allh's creation." His saying reached a lady from Ban Asad, called Umm Ya'qb, who came (to 'Abdullh) and said, "I have come to know that you have cursed such and such (ladies)?" He replied, "Why should I not curse these whom Allh's Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] has cursed and who are (cursed) in Allh's Book!" Umm Ya'qb said, "I have read the whole Qur'n, but I did not find in it what you say." He said, "Verily, if you have read it (i.e. the Qur'n), you have found it. Didn't you read: "And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad ) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it)." (V.59:7).

She replied, "Yes, I did." He said, "Verily, Allh's Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] forbade such things." She said, "But I see your wife doing these things?" He said, "Go and watch her." She went and watched her but could not see anything in support of her statement. On that he said, "If my wife was as you thought, I would not keep her in my company (i.e., I would divorce her)." [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 6/4886 (O.P.408)]

Narrated 'Abdullh (bin Mas'd) [radhi-yAllhu 'anhu]: Allh's Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] has cursed the lady who uses false hair. [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 6/4887 (O.P.409)]
