The Column (Al-Suff)
14 verses, revealed in Medina after Mutual Blaming (Al-Taghaabun) before Friday (Al-Jumu'ah)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify God. He is the Majestic and All-wise. (1) O People who Believe! Why do you preach what you do not practice? (2) Most loathsome is it in the sight of God that you say what you do not do! (3) surely, God loves those who fight for His cause in ranks, as if they were a solid cemented structure. (4) When Moses said to his people: "O my people, why do you afflict me though you know that I have been sent to you by God?" But when they turned aside God made their hearts turn farther away; for God does not show the transgressors the way. (5) And when Jesus son of Mary said, 'Children of Israel, I am indeed the Messenger of God to you, confirming the Torah that is before me, and giving good tidings of a Messenger who shall come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.' Then, when he brought them the clear signs, they said, 'This is a manifest sorcery.' (6) And who could be more wicked than one who invents [such] a lie about [a message from] God, seeing that he is [but] being called to self-surrender unto Him? But God does not bestow His guidance upon evil-doing folk. (7) they wish to put His light out with their mouths. But He will perfect His light, much as those who deny the truth may dislike it; (8) It is He who sent His Apostle with the guidance and the true way to raise it above all faiths, however the idolaters may dislike it. (9)
