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

that they shall not steal, nor commit adultery,
nor kill their children,
nor utter any slander
that they may have intentionally fabricated,
nor disobey you in what is right,
then accept their allegiance,
and plead for them to Allah for forgiveness.
Indeed Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful
13 O you who have faith!
Do not befriend a people
at whom Allah is wrathful:
they have despaired of the Hereafter,
just as the faithless have despaired
of the occupants of the graves.

61. Sūrat al-Ṣaff 1

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

1 Whatever there is in the heavens glorifies Allah
and whatever there is in the earth,
and He is the All-mighty, the All-wise
2 O you who have faith!
Why do you say what you do not do?
3 It is greatly outrageous to Allah
that you should say what you do not do.
4 Indeed Allah loves those
who fight in His way in ranks,

1 The sūrah takes its name from verse 4, in which the word ṣaff (ranks) occurs.
