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

11 No affliction visits [anyone] except by Allah’s leave.
Whoever has faith in Allah,
He guides his heart,
and Allah has knowledge of all things.
12 Obey Allah and obey the Apostle;
but if you turn away,
then Our Apostle’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms.
13 Allah — there is no god except Him —
in Allah let all the faithful put their trust.
14 O you who have faith!
Indeed among your spouses and children
you have enemies; so beware of them.
And if you excuse, forbear and forgive,
then Allah is indeed all-forgiving, all-merciful.
15 Rather your possessions and children are a trial,
and Allah — with Him is a great reward!
16 So be wary of Allah, as far as you can,
and listen and obey,
and spend [in the way of Allah];
that is better for yourselves.
Those who are saved from their own greed
— it is they who are the felicitous.
17 If you lend Allah a good loan,
He shall multiply it for you and forgive you,
and Allah is all-appreciative, all-forbearing,
18 Knower of the sensible and the Unseen,
the All-mighty, the All-wise.
