The Test (Al-Mumtahanah)
13 verses, revealed in Medina after The Parties (Al-Ahzaab) before Women (Al-Nesaa)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Believers, do not choose My enemies and your own enemies for friends, and offer them strong love. They have rejected the Truth which has come to you, and have expelled the Messenger and you from your homes because of your belief in your Lord. When you go to fight for My cause and seek My pleasure, you secretly express your love of them. I know best what you reveal or conceal. Whichever of you does this has indeed gone astray from the right path. (1) If they gain dominance over you, they would be to you as enemies and extend against you their hands and their tongues with evil, and they wish you would disbelieve. (2) There will profit you neither your kindred nor your children. On the Day of Resurrection He shall decide between you; and Allah is of that which you work Beholder. (3) Surely there hath been an excellent pattern for you in Ibrahim and those with him, when they said unto their people; verily we are quit of you and of that which ye worship beside Allah; we renounce you; and surely there hath appeared between us and you hostility and hatred for evermore until ye believe in Allah alone, except the saying of Ibrahim unto his father: surely I shall beg forgiveness for thee, and I have no power with Allah for thee at all. Our Lord! in Thee we put our trust, and unto Thee we turn, and unto Thee is the journeying. (4) Our Lord, do not make us a test for the unbelievers, and forgive us, our Lord. Surely You are Most Mighty, Most Wise.” (5) Indeed in them lay a good example for you to follow for one who looks forward to (meeting) Allah and the Last Day; and whoever turns away then (know that) indeed Allah only is the Independent, the Most Praiseworthy.
