55b.  They serve Me. They ascribe nothing as partner unto Me. And those who disbelieve henceforth, they are the miscreants.

 

56.  And establish worship and pay the poor-due and obey the Messenger, that haply ye may find mercy.

 

57.  Think not that the disbelievers can escape in the land. Fire will be their home – and a hapless journey’s end!

55b.  Ya’-buduunaNii  laa  yushrikuuna  Bii  shay-‘aa.  Wa  man  kafara  ba’-da  zaalika  fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika  humul-faasiquun.

 

56.  Wa  ‘aqiimus-Salaata  wa  ‘aatuz-Zakaata  wa  ‘atii-‘ur-Rasuula  la-‘allakum  turha-muun.

 

57.  Laa  tahsaban-nallaziina  kafaruu  mu’-jiziina  fil-‘arz.  Wa  ma’-waahumun-Naar.  Wa  la-bi’-sal-masiir.

Commentary

 

After bearing oppressions of the Idolaters of Makkah for thirteen years by astonishing silence and steady, the Muslims departed from their native land Makkah to Madinah by the Command of Allaah Almighty, but here too, those infidels did not let them live in peace. Sincere and obedient of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) Muslims who flew along with Him from Makkah and those inhabitants of Madinah who had become their supporters and comrades, they all (May Allaah be pleased with them) suffered from great calamities in the beginning. Besides the foes of Makkah, the Jews of Madinah also got ready to oppose them. In addition to this, another group of Hypocrites was born; who apparently joined the Muslims; but secretly they were companions of the enemies. In such condition, these verses were revealed, in which it was proclaimed fearlessly: O ignorant people! These oppressed Muslims will become owners of the entire world in future. They will be successors of those ancient and great nations which have ruled in the world. And the same religion (Islam), to which you have got ready to finish, but which is most favorite religion of Allaah Almighty, will become very strong and firm. Its enemies will be failures. That will be slain who will rebel. All confusions of the Muslims will go to an end.   (Continued) . . .
