The Apartments

Revealed at Medina, Verses: 18 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. O Believers, do not advance before God and His Messenger, and fear God; God is Hearing, Knowing.(1)
  2. O Believers, do not raise your voices above the Prophet's voice, nor be loud in your speech to him, as you are loud to one another, lest your works go waste and you do not perceive.(2)
  3. Those who keep their voices low in the presence of God's Messenger, those are the ones whose hearts God has tested for godfearing; for them shall be forgiveness and a big wage.(3)
  4. Those who call to thee from behind the apartments, most of them do not understand.(4)
  5. And if they had shown patience, till thou comes out to them, it would have been better for them; and God is Forgiving, Merciful.(5)
  6. O Believers, if a transgressor comes to you with a news, make clear, lest you afflict a people in ignorance, and then repent on what you have done.(6)
  7. And know that among you is the Messenger of God; if he obeys you in much of the affair, you would fall in trouble; but God has endeared to you belief and has adorned it in your hearts, and He has made hateful to you unbelief, transgression and disobedience; those are the right-minded people,(7)
  8. by God's favour and blessing; God is Knowing, Wise.(8)
  9. And if two groups of the Believers fight together, put things right between them; then if one of the two aggresses against the other, fight the one that aggresses till it reverts to God's command; then if it reverts, put things right between the two equitably and be just; surely God loves the just.(9)
  10. The Believes are but brothers; so put things right between your two brothers, and fear God that you may find mercy.(10)
  11. O Believers, let not a people scoff at another people, it may be they are better than they, nor let women (scoff) at other women, it may be they are better than they. And do not find fault with one another, nor call by nicknames. Giving bad names is transgression after belief, and those who do not repent, they are the wrong-doers.(11)
  12. O Believers, avoid much of suspicion; some suspicion is a sin; and do not spy, nor backbite one another; does any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother; you would hate it; and fear God; God is All-returning, Merciful.(12)
  13. O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female, and made you races and tribes, that you may know one another; the noblest among you, in the sight of God, is the one most godfearing of you; God is Knowing, Aware.(13)
  14. The Bedouins say, `we believe.' Say `you do not believe; rather say, `we surrender, for belief has yet not entered your hearts; but if you obey God and His Messenger, He will not diminish you anything of your works; God is Forgiving, Merciful'.(14)
  15. The Believers are only those who believe in God and His Messenger, then doubt not, and struggle with their possessions and their selves in the way of God; those are the truthful ones.(15)
  16. Say, `would you teach God about your religion; and God knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth; and God has knowledge of everything?'(16)
  17. They count it as a favour to thee that they have surrendered. Say, `do not count your surrender as a favour to me; no, but God confers favour upon you, that He has guided you to Belief, if you are truthful.'(17)
  18. God knows the unseen of the heavens and the earth; and God sees what you do.(18)
