Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

and be wary of Allah.
Indeed Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing.
2 O you who have faith!
Do not raise your voices
above the voice of the Prophet,
and do not speak aloud to him
as you shout to one another,
lest your works should fail
without your being aware.
3 Indeed those who lower their voices
in the presence of the Apostle of Allah
— they are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested
for Godwariness.
For them will be forgiveness and a great reward.
4 Indeed those who call you
from behind the apartments,
most of them do not apply reason.
5 Had they been patient until you came out for them,
it would have been better for them,
and Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful.
6 O you who have faith!
If a profligate [person] should bring you some news,
verify it,
lest you should visit [harm] on some people
out of ignorance,
and then become regretful for what you have done.
7 Know that the Apostle of Allah is among you.
Should he obey you in many matters,
you would surely suffer.
But Allah has endeared faith to you
