Say, “Nothing will ever befall us except what Allah has destined for us. He is our Protector.” So in Allah let the believers put their trust. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Say, “Are you awaiting anything to befall us except one of the two best things: ˹victory or martyrdom˺? But We are awaiting Allah to afflict you with torment either from Him or at our hands. So keep waiting! We too are waiting with you.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “˹Whether you˺ donate willingly or unwillingly, it will never be accepted from you, for you have been a rebellious people.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And what prevented their donations from being accepted is that they have lost faith in Allah and His Messenger, they never come to prayer except half-heartedly, and they never donate except resentfully. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
So let neither their wealth nor children impress you ˹O Prophet˺. Allah only intends to torment them through these things in this worldly life, then their souls will depart while they are disbelievers. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
They swear by Allah that they are part of you, but they are not. They only say so out of fear. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
If only they could find a refuge, or a cave, or any hiding-place, they would rush headlong towards it. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﭿ
There are some of them who are critical of your distribution of alms ˹O Prophet˺. If they are given some of it they are pleased, but if not they are enraged. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
If only they had been content with what Allah and His Messenger had given them and said, “Allah is sufficient for us! Allah will grant us out of His bounty, and so will His Messenger. To Allah ˹alone˺ we turn with hope.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Alms-tax is only for the poor and the needy, for those employed to administer it, for those whose hearts are attracted ˹to the faith˺, for ˹freeing˺ slaves, for those in debt, for Allah’s cause, and for ˹needy˺ travellers. ˹This is˺ an obligation from Allah. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
