4.81 . And they say : ( It is ) obedience ; but when they have gone forth from thee a party of them spend the night in planning other than what thou sayest . Allah recordeth what they plan by night . So oppose them and put thy trust in Allah . Allah is sufficient as Trustee .
4.82 . Will they not then ponder on the Qur ' an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity .
4.83 . And if any tidings , whether of safety or fear , come unto them , they noise it abroad , whereas if they had referred it to the messenger and such of them as are in authority , those among them who are able to think out the matter would have known it . If it had not been for the grace of Allah and His mercy ye would have followed Satan , save a few ( of you ) .
4.84 . So fight ( O Muhammad ) in the way of Allah Thou art not taxed ( with the responsibility for anyone ) except for thyself and urge on the believers . Peradventure Allah will restrain the might of those who disbelieve . Allah is stronger in might and stronger in inflicting punishment .
4.85 . Whoso interveneth in a good cause will have the reward thereof , and whoso interveneth in an evil cause will bear the consequence thereof . Allah overseeth all things .
4.86 . When ye are greeted with a greeting , greet ye with a better than it or return it . Lo! Allah taketh count of all things .
4.87 . Allah! There is no God save Him . He gathereth you all unto a Day of Resurrection whereof there is no doubt . Who is more true in statement than Allah?
4.88 . What aileth you that ye are become two parties regarding the hypocrites , when Allah cast them back ( to disbelief ) because of what they earned? Seek ye to guide him whom Allah hath sent astray? He whom Allah sendeth astray , for him thou ( O Muhammad ) canst not find a road .
4.89 . They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve , that ye may be upon a level ( with them ) . So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah ; if they turn back ( to enmity ) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them , and choose no friend nor helper from among them ,
4.90 . Except those who seek refuge with a people between whom and you there is a covenant , or ( those who ) come unto you because their hearts forbid them to make war on you or make war on their own folk . Had Allah willed He could have given them power over you so that assuredly they would have fought you . So , if they hold aloof from you and wage not war against you and offer you peace , Allah alloweth you no way against them .
4.91 . Ye will find others who desire that they should have security from you , and security from their own folk . So often as they are returned to hostility they are plunged therein . If they keep not aloof from you nor offer you peace nor hold their hands , then take them and kill them wherever ye find them . Against such We have given you clear warrant .
4.92 . It is not for a believer to kill a believer unless ( it be ) by mistake . He who hath killed a believer by mistake must set free a believing slave , and pay the blood money to the family of the slain , unless they remit it as a charity . If he ( the victim ) be of a people hostile unto you , and he is a believer , then ( the penance is ) to set free a believing slave . And if he cometh of a folk between whom and you there is a covenant , then the blood money must be paid unto his folk and ( also ) a believing slave must be set free . And whoso hath not the wherewithal must fast two consecutive months . A penance from Allah . Allah is Knower , Wise .
4.93 . Whoso slayeth a believer of set purpose , his reward is Hell for ever . Allah is wroth against him and He hath cursed him and prepared for him an awful doom .
4.94 . O ye who believe! When ye go forth ( to fight ) in the way of Allah , be careful to discriminate , and say not unto one who offereth you peace : "Thou are not a believer ; " seeking the chance profits of this life ( so that ye may despoil him ) . With Allah are plenteous spoils . Even thus ( as he now is ) were ye before ; but Allah hath since then been gracious unto you . Therefore take care to discriminate . Allah is ever informed of what ye do .
4.95 . Those of the believers who sit still , other than those who have a ( disabling ) hurt , are not on an equality with those who strive in the way of Allah with their wealth and lives . Allah hath conferred on those who strive with their wealth and lives a rank above the sedentary . Unto each Allah hath promised good , but He hath bestowed on those who strive a great reward above the sedentary ;
4.96 . Degrees of rank from Him , and forgiveness and mercy . Allah is ever Forgiving , Merciful .
