KANZUL IMAN ENGLISH TRANSLATION
AL BAQARAH (THE COW)
Madina, 40 sections, 286 verses.
Allah – beginning with the name of – the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
83: And (remember) when We took a covenant from the Descendants of Israel that, “Do not worship anyone except Allah; and be good to parents,
relatives, orphans and the needy, and speak kindly to people and keep the prayer established and pay the charity”; thereafter you retracted, except some
of you; and you are those who turn away.
84: And when We took a covenant from you that, “Do not shed the blood of your own people nor turn out your own people from your colonies”; you
then acknowledged it and you are witnesses.
85: Then it is you who began slaying each other and you drive out a group of your people from their homeland – providing support against them
(to their opponents) through sin and injustice; and if they come to you as captives you redeem them, whereas their expulsion itself is forbidden to you;
so do you believe in some of Allah’s commands and disbelieve in some? So what is the reward of those who do so, except disgrace in this world? And on the
Day of Resurrection they will be assigned to the most grievous punishment; and Allah is not unaware of your deeds.
86: These are the people who bought the worldly life in exchange of the Hereafter – so their punishment will not be lightened, nor will they be helped.
