AL FATH (THE VICTORY)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[Fath 48:1] We have indeed, for your sake (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), bestowed a clear victory.
[Fath 48:2] So that Allah may forgive, for your sake, the sins of those before you and those after you, and complete His favours upon you, and to show you the Straight Path.
[Fath 48:3] And so that Allah may provide you a great help.
[Fath 48:4] It is He Who instilled peace in the hearts of the believers, so that it may increase their strength of conviction; and to Allah only belong the armies of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is All Knowing, Wise.
[Fath 48:5] In order to admit the believing men and believing women into Gardens beneath which rivers flow, in which they will abide, and to relieve them of their misdeeds; and this, in Allah’s sight, is the greatest success.
[Fath 48:6] And to punish the hypocrite men and hypocrite women, and the polytheist men and polytheist women, who think evilly about Allah; upon them only is the evil cycle of misfortune; and Allah has wreaked anger upon them, and has cursed them, and has prepared hell for them; and what an evil destination.
[Fath 48:7] And to Allah only belong the armies of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is Most Honourable, Wise.
[Fath 48:8] We have indeed sent you (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) as a present witness and a Herald of glad tidings and warnings. (The Holy Prophet is a witness from Allah.)
[Fath 48:9] In order that you, O people, may accept faith in Allah and His Noble Messenger, and honour and revere the Noble Messenger; and may say the Purity of Allah, morning and evening. (To honour the Holy Prophet – peace and blessings be upon him – is part of faith. To disrespect him is blasphemy.)
