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

of any partners that they may ascribe [to Him]!
24 He is Allah, the Creator,
the Maker, the Former.
To Him belong the Best Names.
Whatever there is in the heavens glorifies Him
and [whatever there is in] the earth,
and He is the All-mighty, the All-wise.

60. Sūrat al-Mumtaḥanah 1

In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

1 O you who have faith!
Do not take My enemy and your enemy for friends,
[secretly] offering them affection
(for they have certainly defied
whatever has come to you of the truth,
expelling the Apostle and you,
because you have faith in Allah, your Lord)
if you have set out for jihād in My way
and to seek My pleasure.
You secretly nourish affection for them,
while I know well whatever you hide
and whatever you disclose,
and whoever among you does that
has certainly strayed from the right way.
2 If they were to confront you

1 The sūrah takes its name from verse 10 concerning the testing (imtiḥān) of new female converts to Islam.
