Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

When the hypocrites come to you ˹O Prophet˺, they say, “We bear witness that you are certainly the Messenger of Allah”—and surely Allah knows that you are His Messenger—but Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are truly liars.

            

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

They have made their ˹false˺ oaths as a shield, hindering ˹others˺ from the Way of Allah. Evil indeed is what they do!

           

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

This is because they believed and then abandoned faith. Therefore, their hearts have been sealed, so they do not comprehend.

                      

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

When you see them, their appearance impresses you. And when they speak, you listen to their ˹impressive˺ speech. But they are ˹just˺ like ˹worthless˺ planks of wood leaned ˹against a wall˺. They think every cry is against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. May Allah condemn them! How can they be deluded ˹from the truth˺?

              

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

When it is said to them, “Come! The Messenger of Allah will pray for you to be forgiven,” they turn their heads ˹in disgust˺, and you see them ˹O Prophet˺ turn away in arrogance.

                  

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

It is the same whether you pray for their forgiveness or not, Allah will not forgive them. Surely Allah does not guide the rebellious people.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

They are the ones who say ˹to one another˺, “Do not spend ˹anything˺ on those ˹emigrants˺ with the Messenger of Allah so that they will break away ˹from him˺.” But to Allah ˹alone˺ belong the treasuries of the heavens and the earth, yet the hypocrites do not comprehend.

                 

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

They say, “If we return to Medina, the honourable will definitely expel the inferior.” But all honour and power belongs to Allah, His Messenger, and the believers, yet the hypocrites do not know.

                 

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

O believers! Do not let your wealth or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. For whoever does so, it is they who are the ˹true˺ losers.

And donate from what We have provided for you before death comes to one of you, and you say, “My Lord! If only You delayed me for a short while, I would give in charity and be one of the righteous.”
