The Tested Women

Revealed at Madina,Verses: 13 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. O Believers, do not take My enemies and your enemies for friends, by offering them love, while they have disbelieved in the truth that has come to you, expelling the Messenger and you, because you believe in God, your Lord. If you go forth to struggle in My way and seek My pleasure, secretly sending them love, and I know what you conceal and what you announce; and whosoever of you does it has indeed gone astray from the even way.(1)
  2. If they come on you, they will be enemies to you, and will stretch their hands and their tongues against you to do you evil, and they wish if you would disbelieve.(2)
  3. Your blood relations shall not profit you, nor your children, on the Day of Resurrection, when He will decide between you; and God sees what you do.(3)
  4. Surely you have a good example in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people, `we are quit of you and what you serve apart from God; we disagree with you, and enmity and hatred have shown between us and you forever, until you believe in God alone' __ except Abraham's word to his father, `I shall certainly ask forgiveness for thee, though I have no power to do anything for thee against God' __ `Our Lord, in Thee we put our trust, and to Thee we turn, and to Thee is the destination.(4)
  5. Our Lord, do not make us a temptation to the unbelievers and forgive us, our Lord; surely Thou art the Mighty, the Wise.'(5)
  6. There was indeed a good example for you in them __ for him who looks to God and the Last Day. And any who turns away, then God is the All-sufficient, the Praiseworthy.(6)
  7. It may be that God will bring about love between you and those of them with whom you are at enmity; and God is Powerful; and God is Forgiving, Merciful.(7)
  8. God does not forbid you regarding those who have not fought you on account of the Religion, and have not expelled you from your homes, that you should be virtuous to them and be equitable with them; surely God loves the equitable.(8)
  9. God forbids you only regarding those who have fought you on account of Religion, and have expelled you from your homes, and have given support in your expulsion, that you should take them for friends; and whoso takes them for friends, those are the wrong-doers.(9)
  10. O Believers, when Believing women come to you, as emigrants, test them; God very well knows their Belief; then if you know them to be Believers, do not return them to the unbelievers; they are not lawful to them, nor are they (the unbelievers) lawful to them; and give them what they have expended. And there is no blame on you if you marry them, when you have given them their dowries. And do not hold to the ties of the unbelieving women, and ask for what you expended; and let them also ask what they expended; that is God's decision; He decides between you; and God is Knowing, Wise.(10)
  11. And if any of your wives has slipped away from you to the unbelievers, and then you retaliate, give those whose wives have gone away, the like of what they expended; and fear God in whom you believe.(11)
  12. O Prophet, when Believing women come to thee and take oath of allegiance to thee __ that they will not associate anything with God, nor steal, nor commit fornication, nor kill their children, nor bring a calumny, forging it between their hands and their feet, nor disobey thee in desirable things __ take their oath of allegiance and pray God for their forgiveness; surely God is Forgiving, Merciful.(12)
  13. O Believers, do not take for friends a people with whom God is wrathful; they have despaired of the Hereafter, as the unbelievers despair of the people in the tombs.(13)
