003.128 Not for thee, (but for God), is the decision: Whether He turn in mercy to them, or punish them; for they are indeed wrong-doers.
003.129 To God belongeth all that is in the heavens and on earth. He forgiveth whom He pleaseth andpunisheth whom He pleaseth; but God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
003.130 O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied; but fear God; that ye may (really) prosper.
003.131 Fear the Fire, which is repaired for those who reject Faith:
003.132 And obey God and the Apostle; that ye may obtain mercy.
003.133 Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and fora Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of the heavens and of the earth, prepared forthe righteous,-
003.134 Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men;- for God loves those who do good;-
003.135 And those who, having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged their own souls, earnestly bring God to mind, and ask for forgiveness for their sins, - and who can forgive sins exceptGod?- and are never obstinate in persisting knowingly in (the wrong) they have done.
003.136 For such the reward is forgiveness from their Lord, and Gardens with rivers flowing underneath,- an eternal dwelling: How excellent a recompense for those who work (and strive)!
003.137 Many were theWays of Life that havepassed away before you: travel through theearth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth.
003.138 Here is a plain statement to men, a guidance and instruction to those who fear God! 003.139 So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith.
003.140 If a wound hath touched you, be sure a similar wound hath touched the others. Such days (of varying fortunes) We give to men and men by turns: that God mayknow those that believe, and that He may take to Himself from your ranks Martyr-witnesses (to Truth). And God loveth not those that do wrong.
003.141 God's object also is to purge those that are true in Faith and to deprive of blessing Those that resist Faith.
003.142 Did ye think that ye would enter Heaven without God testing those of you who fought hard (In His Cause) and remained steadfast?
003.143 Ye did indeed wish for death before ye met him: Now ye have seen him with your own eyes, (And ye flinch!)
003.144 Muhammad is no more than an apostle: many Were the apostle that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then Turn back on your heels? If any did turn back on his heels, not the leastharm will he do to God; but God (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude.
003.145 Nor can a soul die except by God's leave, the term being fixed as by writing. If any do desire a rewardin this life, We shall give it to him; and if any do desire a rewardin the Hereafter, We shall give it to him. Andswiftly shall We reward those that (serve us with) gratitude. 003.146 How many of the prophets fought (in God's way), and with them (fought) Large bands of godly men? but they never lost heart if they met with disaster in God's way, nor did they weaken (in will) nor give in. And God Loves those who are firm and steadfast.
003.147 All that they said was: "Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and anything We may havedone that transgressed our duty:Establish our feet firmly, and help us against those that resist Faith."
003.148 And God gave them a reward in this world, and the excellent reward of the Hereafter. For God Loveth those who do good.
003.149 O ye who believe! If ye obey the Unbelievers, they will drive you back on your heels, and ye will turn back (from Faith) to your own loss.
003.150 Nay, God is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.
003.151 Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with God, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the Fire: And evil is the home ofthe wrong-doers!
003.152 God did indeed fulfil His promise to you when ye with His permission Were aboutto annihilate your enemy,-until ye flinched and fell to disputing about the order, and disobeyed it after He brought you insight (of the booty) which ye covet. Amongyou are some that hanker after this worldand some that desire the Hereafter. Then did He divert you from your foes in order to test you but He forgave you: For God is full of grace to those who believe.
