Verse 60:1

يٰۤاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا لَا تَتَّخِذُوۡا عَدُوِّىۡ وَعَدُوَّكُمۡ اَوۡلِيَآءَ تُلۡقُوۡنَ اِلَيۡهِمۡ بِالۡمَوَدَّةِ وَقَدۡ كَفَرُوۡا بِمَا جَآءَكُمۡ مِّنَ الۡحَـقِّ​ ۚ يُخۡرِجُوۡنَ الرَّسُوۡلَ وَاِيَّاكُمۡ​ اَنۡ تُؤۡمِنُوۡا بِاللّٰهِ رَبِّكُمۡ ؕ اِنۡ كُنۡـتُمۡ خَرَجۡتُمۡ جِهَادًا فِىۡ سَبِيۡلِىۡ وَ ابۡتِغَآءَ مَرۡضَاتِىۡ ​ۖ  تُسِرُّوۡنَ اِلَيۡهِمۡ بِالۡمَوَدَّةِ ​ۖ  وَاَنَا اَعۡلَمُ بِمَاۤ اَخۡفَيۡتُمۡ وَمَاۤ اَعۡلَنۡتُمۡ​ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّفۡعَلۡهُ مِنۡكُمۡ فَقَدۡ ضَلَّ سَوَآءَ السَّبِيۡلِ‏ 

O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! Do not take My enemies ? who are your enemies as well ? for friends. Do you extend love and friendship to them when they reject the truth that has come to you, driving out the Messenger and you because you believe in God, your Lord? If you are committed to strive in My way and to seek My approval, befriend them not. Do you show them friendship in secret, though I am best Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal? And whoever among you does that, he has certainly strayed from the right way. [3:117]

Verse 60:2

اِنۡ يَّثۡقَفُوۡكُمۡ يَكُوۡنُوۡا لَـكُمۡ اَعۡدَآءً وَّيَبۡسُطُوۡۤا اِلَيۡكُمۡ اَيۡدِيَهُمۡ وَاَلۡسِنَتَهُمۡ بِالسُّوۡٓءِ وَوَدُّوۡا لَوۡ تَكۡفُرُوۡنَؕ‏

If they ever overcome you, they will divide you, and smite you with their hands and tongues causing much disruption. For, they will love to see you reject the truth. [""Idia = Wedge = Wedge of division = Enmity = Dissension = Distance. Su = Disruption = Imbalance = Evil = Inequity]

Verse 60:3

لَنۡ تَـنۡفَعَكُمۡ اَرۡحَامُكُمۡ وَلَاۤ اَوۡلَادُكُمۡ ۛۚ يَوۡمَ الۡقِيٰمَةِ ۛۚ يَفۡصِلُ بَيۡنَكُمۡ​ؕ وَاللّٰهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ بَصِيۡرٌ‏

(Divine Ideology comes first. Know that) Your family, relatives and your children will not avail you on the Resurrection Day. He will decide between you on individual merit alone. God is Seer of all that you do.

Verse 60:4

قَدۡ كَانَتۡ لَـكُمۡ اُسۡوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ فِىۡۤ اِبۡرٰهِيۡمَ وَالَّذِيۡنَ مَعَهٗ​ۚ اِذۡ قَالُوۡا لِقَوۡمِهِمۡ اِنَّا بُرَءٰٓؤُا مِنۡكُمۡ وَمِمَّا تَعۡبُدُوۡنَ مِنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰهِ كَفَرۡنَا بِكُمۡ وَبَدَا بَيۡنَنَا وَبَيۡنَكُمُ الۡعَدَاوَةُ وَالۡبَغۡضَآءُ اَبَدًا حَتّٰى تُؤۡمِنُوۡا بِاللّٰهِ وَحۡدَهٗۤ اِلَّا قَوۡلَ اِبۡرٰهِيۡمَ لِاَبِيۡهِ لَاَسۡتَغۡفِرَنَّ لَـكَ وَمَاۤ اَمۡلِكُ لَـكَ مِنَ اللّٰهِ مِنۡ شَىۡءٍ ​ؕ رَبَّنَا عَلَيۡكَ تَوَكَّلۡنَا وَاِلَيۡكَ اَنَـبۡنَا وَاِلَيۡكَ الۡمَصِيۡرُ‏

There is an excellent pattern for you in Abraham, and his companions. They said to their people, ""Truly, we stay clear of you and of what you worship instead of God. We reject you. And between us and you has arisen absolute distance and aversion until you believe in God alone."" The only exception was Abraham""s saying to his father, ""I will pray for your forgiveness, although I own nothing for you from God."" Then he prayed, ""Our Lord! In You we place our trust, to You we turn for guidance, and unto You is the journey""s end. [9:113, 14:41, 19:47, 33:21, 58:22]

Verse 60:5

رَبَّنَا لَا تَجۡعَلۡنَا فِتۡنَةً لِّلَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا وَاغۡفِرۡ لَـنَا رَبَّنَا​ ۚ اِنَّكَ اَنۡتَ الۡعَزِيۡزُ الۡحَكِيۡمُ‏

Our Lord! Let us not be made a target of persecution at the hands of the rejecters. And protect us, our Lord! Surely, You are Mighty, Wise."" [Ghafarah = Helmet = Protection = Forgiveness = Guarding against detriment = Absolution of faults = Protection against intrinsic or extrinsic loss]

Verse 60:6

لَقَدۡ كَانَ لَـكُمۡ فِيۡهِمۡ اُسۡوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَنۡ كَانَ يَرۡجُوا اللّٰهَ وَالۡيَوۡمَ الۡاٰخِرَ​ ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّتَوَلَّ فَاِنَّ اللّٰهَ هُوَ الۡغَنِىُّ الۡحَمِيۡدُ‏ 

In them, you have an excellent pattern, for anyone whose hope is in God and in the Last Day. And whoever turns away, then God is Absolutely Independent, Worthy of all praise.

Verse 60:7

عَسَى اللّٰهُ اَنۡ يَّجۡعَلَ بَيۡنَكُمۡ وَبَيۡنَ الَّذِيۡنَ عَادَيۡتُمۡ مِّنۡهُمۡ مَّوَدَّةً ؕ وَاللّٰهُ قَدِيۡرٌ​ؕ وَاللّٰهُ غَفُوۡرٌ رَّحِيۡمٌ‏

It may well be that God will bring about affection between you and those whom you now consider enemies. God is Able to do all things. And God is Forgiving, Merciful.

Verse 60:8

لَا يَنۡهٰٮكُمُ اللّٰهُ عَنِ الَّذِيۡنَ لَمۡ يُقَاتِلُوۡكُمۡ فِى الدِّيۡنِ وَلَمۡ يُخۡرِجُوۡكُمۡ مِّنۡ دِيَارِكُمۡ اَنۡ تَبَرُّوۡهُمۡ وَ تُقۡسِطُوۡۤا اِلَيۡهِمۡ​ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُحِبُّ الۡمُقۡسِطِيۡنَ‏

God does not forbid you from being kind, and fully equitable to those who do not fight you on account of Religion, and do not evict you from your homelands. God loves those who lead a just, balanced life. [Deen = Divinely Prescribed System of Life = Way of Life = Collective system of living = Religion]

Verse 60:9

اِنَّمَا يَنۡهٰٮكُمُ اللّٰهُ عَنِ الَّذِيۡنَ قَاتَلُوۡكُمۡ فِى الدِّيۡنِ وَاَخۡرَجُوۡكُمۡ مِّنۡ دِيَارِكُمۡ وَظَاهَرُوۡا عَلٰٓى اِخۡرَاجِكُمۡ اَنۡ تَوَلَّوۡهُمۡ​ۚ وَمَنۡ يَّتَوَلَّهُمۡ فَاُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ الظّٰلِمُوۡنَ‏

God forbids you from befriending only those who fight you on account of Religion and evict you from your homelands, or help others in evicting you. Those who befriend them will be wrongdoers.

Verse 60:10

يٰۤاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡۤا اِذَا جَآءَكُمُ الۡمُؤۡمِنٰتُ مُهٰجِرٰتٍ فَامۡتَحِنُوۡهُنَّ​ ؕ اَللّٰهُ اَعۡلَمُ بِاِيۡمَانِهِنَّ​ ۚ فَاِنۡ عَلِمۡتُمُوۡهُنَّ مُؤۡمِنٰتٍ فَلَا تَرۡجِعُوۡهُنَّ اِلَى الۡكُفَّارِ​ ؕ لَا هُنَّ حِلٌّ لَّهُمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يَحِلُّوۡنَ لَهُنَّ​ ۚ وَاٰ تُوۡهُمۡ مَّاۤ اَنۡفَقُوۡا​ ؕ وَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيۡكُمۡ اَنۡ تَنۡكِحُوۡهُنَّ اِذَاۤ اٰ تَيۡتُمُوۡهُنَّ اُجُوۡرَهُنَّ​ ؕ وَلَا تُمۡسِكُوۡا بِعِصَمِ الۡكَوَافِرِ وَسۡــَٔـلُوۡا مَاۤ اَنۡفَقۡتُمۡ وَلۡيَسۡــَٔـلُوۡا مَاۤ اَنۡفَقُوۡا​ ؕ ذٰ لِكُمۡ حُكۡمُ اللّٰهِ​ ؕ يَحۡكُمُ بَيۡنَكُمۡ​ ؕ وَاللّٰهُ عَلِيۡمٌ حَكِيۡمٌ‏ 

O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! When believing women come to you as immigrants, investigate their case, although only God is best Aware of their faith. Once you establish that they are truly believers, do not return them to the rejecters of the truth. They are not lawful for the rejecters, nor are the rejecters lawful for them. Give the rejecters what they have spent on them (as dowry). And there is no blame on you if you marry these women, when you have given them their due marital gift. And do not hold on to wedlock with women who continue to deny the truth. And you may ask them for the dowry you had paid, just as the rejecters have the right to ask the return of what they spent. This is the Judgment of God. He judges between you, for God is All Knower, All Wise.
