Verse 58:11

يٰۤاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡۤا اِذَا قِيۡلَ لَـكُمۡ تَفَسَّحُوۡا فِى الۡمَجٰلِسِ فَافۡسَحُوۡا يَفۡسَحِ اللّٰهُ لَـكُمۡ​ ۚ وَاِذَا قِيۡلَ انْشُزُوۡا فَانْشُزُوۡا يَرۡفَعِ اللّٰهُ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا مِنۡكُمۡ ۙ وَالَّذِيۡنَ اُوۡتُوا الۡعِلۡمَ دَرَجٰتٍ ​ؕ وَاللّٰهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ خَبِيۡرٌ‏

O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! When you are told to make room in the assemblies (and accommodate one another in your society), do make room. God will open up His resources for you. And when you are told to rise up, do rise up (to the occasion). God will exalt to high ranks those of you who choose to believe and who attain knowledge. God is Aware of all you do. [Fas'h = Open up = Make room = Accommodate others. Nushooz, 4:34]

Verse 58:12

يٰۤاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡۤا اِذَا نَاجَيۡتُمُ الرَّسُوۡلَ فَقَدِّمُوۡا بَيۡنَ يَدَىۡ نَجۡوٰٮكُمۡ صَدَقَةً  ​ؕ ذٰ لِكَ خَيۡرٌ لَّكُمۡ وَاَطۡهَرُ ​ؕ فَاِنۡ لَّمۡ تَجِدُوۡا فَاِنَّ اللّٰهَ غَفُوۡرٌ رَّحِيۡمٌ‏

O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! Whenever you wish to confer with the Messenger by yourself, give something in charity to the needy or do an act of benevolence. That will be for your own good and erase the imprints of your faults on your own 'self'. But if you have no opportunity, then, remember, God is Forgiving, Merciful. [He absolves faults and rewards good deeds and intentions]

Verse 58:13

ءَاَشۡفَقۡتُمۡ اَنۡ تُقَدِّمُوۡا بَيۡنَ يَدَىۡ نَجۡوٰٮكُمۡ صَدَقٰتٍ​ ؕ فَاِذۡ لَمۡ تَفۡعَلُوۡا وَتَابَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيۡكُمۡ فَاَقِيۡمُوا الصَّلٰوةَ وَ اٰتُوا الزَّكٰوةَ وَاَطِيۡعُوا اللّٰهَ وَرَسُوۡلَهٗ​ ؕ وَاللّٰهُ خَبِيۡرٌۢ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ‏

Is it that you are afraid of a transgression if you are not able to do such an act of kindness before you confer with the Messenger? Yet if you fail to find an opportunity to do it, God has already accepted your repentance. So, stay focused on establishing the Divine System, and setting up the Just Economic Order. Obey God and His Messenger. God is Aware of all you do. [58:12. The command in these two verses, 12 and 13 is fully applicable even today. Whenever we 'confer' with God and His Messenger through studying the Qur'an, we should remind ourselves to do an act kindness to someone. This act of kindness certainly includes conveying even one verse to one person. 'Each one teach one'. It is unfortunate that some of the traditional commentators consider these two verses abrogated after the exalted Prophet's lifetime! The very thought of abrogation of any verses of the Qur'an is absolutely untenable and non-Qur'anic. 2:106]

Verse 58:14

اَلَمۡ تَرَ اِلَى الَّذِيۡنَ تَوَلَّوۡا قَوۡمًا غَضِبَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيۡهِمؕۡ مَّا هُمۡ مِّنۡكُمۡ وَلَا مِنۡهُمۡۙ وَيَحۡلِفُوۡنَ عَلَى الۡكَذِبِ وَهُمۡ يَعۡلَمُوۡنَ‏ 

Have you not seen those who befriend a people whom God disapproves? They are neither of you nor of them, and they knowingly swear on falsehood.

Verse 58:15

اَعَدَّ اللّٰهُ لَهُمۡ عَذَابًا شَدِيۡدًا​ ؕ اِنَّهُمۡ سَآءَ مَا كَانُوۡا يَعۡمَلُوۡنَ‏

God has readied for them a severe suffering. For their behavior is certainly very disruptive.

Verse 58:16

اِتَّخَذُوۡۤا اَيۡمَانَهُمۡ جُنَّةً فَصَدُّوۡا عَنۡ سَبِيۡلِ اللّٰهِ فَلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ مُّهِيۡنٌ‏

They use their oaths as cover and bar others from the path of God. For them will be a humiliating doom.

Verse 58:17

لَنۡ تُغۡنِىَ عَنۡهُمۡ اَمۡوَالُهُمۡ وَلَاۤ اَوۡلَادُهُمۡ مِّنَ اللّٰهِ شَيۡــًٔـا​ ؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ اَصۡحٰبُ النَّارِ​ ؕ هُمۡ فِيۡهَا خٰلِدُوۡنَ‏

Their wealth and their children and party will avail them not against God. It is those who are dwellers of the fire, therein to abide.

Verse 58:18

يَوۡمَ يَبۡعَثُهُمُ اللّٰهُ جَمِيۡعًا فَيَحۡلِفُوۡنَ لَهٗ كَمَا يَحۡلِفُوۡنَ لَـكُمۡ​ وَيَحۡسَبُوۡنَ اَنَّهُمۡ عَلٰى شَىۡءٍ​ ؕ اَلَاۤ اِنَّهُمۡ هُمُ الۡكٰذِبُوۡنَ‏ 

On the Day, when God will raise them all together, they will swear to Him then as they swear to you now, and they fancy that they have some standing. Nay! They are liars.

Verse 58:19

اِسۡتَحۡوَذَ عَلَيۡهِمُ الشَّيۡطٰنُ فَاَنۡسٰٮهُمۡ ذِكۡرَ اللّٰهِ​ؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ حِزۡبُ الشَّيۡطٰنِ​ؕ اَلَاۤ اِنَّ حِزۡبَ الشَّيۡطٰنِ هُمُ الۡخٰسِرُوۡنَ‏

Their selfish desires have overpowered them, and made them oblivious to God's Reminder. Such folks are the party of the Satan. It is they, the Satan's party, who are the ultimate losers.

Verse 58:20

اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ يُحَآدُّوۡنَ اللّٰهَ وَرَسُوۡلَهٗۤ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ فِى الۡاَذَلِّيۡنَ‏ 

Those who oppose God and His Messenger, will be among the most humiliated ones.
