Surah Al-Baqara – Verses 106 to 141 English Translation

ALLAH in the name of The Most Affectionate, the Merciful.

  1. When any verse We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, then shall bring one better or the like thereof. Do you not know that Allah can do all and every thing?
  2. Do you not know that the sovereignty of heavens and earth is only for Allah and beside Allah, you have neither any supporter nor helper?
  3. Do you wish to question your Messenger as Moses was questioned before and whoever exchanges faith for unbelief, he rightly has gone astray from the right path?
  4. Many of the people of the Book desired, had you been turned back towards infidelity after faith! Out of sheer envy of their hearts, after it that the truth has become manifest unto them, so leave them and overlook, till Allah brings His command. Undoubtedly Allah is powerful over every thing.
  5. And keep up the prayer and pay Zakat (poor due) and whatever good you shall send forth for your souls, you shall find it with Allah. Undoubtedly Allah is seeing your doings.
  6. And the people of the Book spoke, ‘None shall enter paradise, but he who be a Jew or Christian. These are their vain desires. Say, you ‘Bring your proof, if you are truthful’.
  7. Yes, why not, who submitted his face for Allah and is the doer of good, then his reward is with his Lord and they have neither any fear nor any grief.
  8. And the Jews spoke, ‘`The Christians are nothing,” and Christians spoke; “The Jews are nothing,” though they read the Book. Even thus the illiterates said the like of their saying. Then Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgement regarding that wherein they are disputing.
  9. Who is more unjust than he who prevents the mosques of Allah from being mentioned the name of Allah, and strives to ruin them, it was not proper for them to enter the mosques but with fear. For them, there is disgrace in the world and for them, there is great torment in the hereafter.
  10. And east and west all is for Allah, then whichever side you turn your face there is the face of Allah (The mercy of Allah inclined towards you). Undoubtedly Allah is all Embracing, all Knowing.
  11. And they say ‘Allah has taken unto Himself a son’, sanctity is for Him. Nay, whatever is in the heavens and is in the earth is His possession. All are unto Him subservient.
  12. The Originator of the heavens and the earth, and when He decrees any thing, then says to it only, ‘Be and it becomes at once.”
  13. And the illiterates spoke, ‘Why Allah speaks not to us or any sign is being given to us. Likewise said those before them, similar to their saying. The hearts of these people and of those are alike. Undoubtedly, We manifested the signs for the persons of firm faith.
  14. Assuredly, We have sent you with the truth; bearer of glad tidings and a Warner and you shall not be questioned about the inmates of Hell.
  15. And never the Jews and Christians will be pleased with you unless you follow their Din (creed). Say then! ‘The guidance of Allah is the only guidance’, (O listener who he may be) if you become follower of their desires, after the knowledge that has come to you, then no one will be your protector from Allah and no helper.
  16. Those who have been given the Book by Us, they recite it as it ought to be, they alone have faith unto it and those who disbelieve it, they alone are the losers.
  17. O Children of Yaqoob! Remember My favour which I bestowed upon you and that I exalted you above all people of that period.
  18. And fear the day when no soul shall be a substitute for another and nor it shall be freed for any compensation, and nor any intercession will profit the infidels and nor will they be helped.
  19. And when his Lord tested Ibrahim with certain words then he fulfilled them. Said He “I am to make you leader of the people,” submitted he” and from my off springs”. Said He, “My covenant does not reach to the unjust”.
  20. And recall! When We made this house a place of assembly for the people and a place of safety, and make the station of Ibrahim a place of prayer and We enjoined strictly upon Ibrahim and Ismail to purify well My house for those who go around it and those who stay therein for devotion and those who bow down and prostrate.
  21. And when Ibrahim submitted “O my Lord make this City a region of peace and feed the inhabitants of it with varied fruits to such of them who believe in Allah and the Last Day,’ said He, “and who became unbeliever, to him also I will give a little to use, and then shall force him towards the torment of the hell and that is an evil place of return.
  22. And when Ibrahim was raising the foundations of this house and Ismail (too) praying, O Our Lord accept from us, undoubtedly, You alone Hear and Know’.
  23. ‘O Our Lord! Make us submissive to You and of our offspring a nation submissive to You, tell us our ways of worship, and turn to us with Your mercy. Surely, You alone are most Relenting and Merciful.
  24. ‘O Our Lord, and send in them a messenger from among themselves, who may recite to them Your signs and teach them Your Book and wise knowledge and may purify them well. Surely, You are alone the Predominant, the Wise.
  25. And who will turn his face from the religion of Ibrahim, save one who is a foolish in heart, and undoubtedly, We necessarily, chose him in the world and surely he is among the people having ability to gain Our special proximity in the hereafter.
  26. When his Lord said to him, “Surrender”, submitted he, ‘I surrendered to Him, Who is the Lord of all the worlds’.
  27. And Ibrahim left the legacy of the same religion to his sons and Yaqoob too; that ‘O my sons, surely Allah has chosen this religion for you, therefore die not, but as Muslim.
  28. On the contrary, some of you were present, when death came to Yaqoob, when he said to his sons, ‘whom you will worship after me’, said they ‘we shall worship He Who is your God and of your fathers Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaque, the one God and to Him we have submitted ourselves’.
  29. This is a community that has passed away, for them what they earned and for you are what you earn and you shall not be questioned for their deeds.
  30. And the people of the book spoke, ‘Be Jews or Christians, you will get guidance’. Say you, ‘on the contrary, we take the religion of Ibrahim who was away from every falls-hood and was not among the polytheists’.
  31. Say like this, ‘we believe in Allah and what has been sent down towards us and what was sent down on Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaque and Yaqoob and on his son and what was given to Moses and Christ and what was given to the rest of the prophets from their Lord: we do not differentiate between any of them in the matter of faith and we have submitted ourselves to Allah.
  32. Then if they believe too, as you have believed then they are guided, and if they turn back their faces, then they are but in total schism. So, O beloved, prophet! Soon Allah will suffice you on behalf of them. He is alone Hearing and Knowing.
  33. We took the dye of Allah and whose dye is better than Allah and We worship Him alone.
  34. Say you! ‘Do you dispute about Allah, though He is our Lord and yours too; and our doings are with us and your doings with you, and we belong totally to Him alone.
  35. On the contrary, you say like this, that Ibrahim, and Ismail and Ishaque and Yaqoob and his sons were Jews or Christians; say then, ‘have you more knowledge or Allah,’ and who is more unjust than he who conceals’ the testimony and Allah is not unmindful of your doings.
  36. That is a community that has passed away, for them is their earning and for you is your earning and you shall not be questioned of their works.
