Verse 61:1

O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! Why do you say what you do not do?

Verse 61:3

كَبُرَ مَقۡتًا عِنۡدَ اللّٰهِ اَنۡ تَقُوۡلُوۡا مَا لَا تَفۡعَلُوۡنَ‏

It is despicable in the Sight of God that you say what you do not do.

Verse 61:4

اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُحِبُّ الَّذِيۡنَ يُقَاتِلُوۡنَ فِىۡ سَبِيۡلِهٖ صَفًّا كَاَنَّهُمۡ بُنۡيَانٌ مَّرۡصُوۡصٌ‏

Truly, God loves those who fight in His cause in columns as if they were a rock solid wall. [Fighting in His cause, see 2:190, 60:8-9]

Verse 61:5

وَاِذۡ قَالَ مُوۡسٰى لِقَوۡمِهٖ يٰقَوۡمِ لِمَ تُؤۡذُوۡنَنِىۡ وَقَد تَّعۡلَمُوۡنَ اَنِّىۡ رَسُوۡلُ اللّٰهِ اِلَيۡكُمۡؕ فَلَمَّا زَاغُوۡۤا اَزَاغَ اللّٰهُ قُلُوۡبَهُمۡ​ؕ وَاللّٰهُ لَا يَهۡدِى الۡقَوۡمَ الۡفٰسِقِيۡنَ‏

(The people of Moses frequently said what they did not do, so) Moses had to tell them, 'O My people! Why do you hurt me, even though you know that I am God's Messenger to you?' But when they kept deviating, God let their hearts deviate. God does not guide those who keep drifting away from their word. [Faasiq = One who drifts away - from? - depends on the context. 61:3]

Verse 61:6

وَاِذۡ قَالَ عِيۡسَى ابۡنُ مَرۡيَمَ يٰبَنِىۡۤ اِسۡرَآءِيۡلَ اِنِّىۡ رَسُوۡلُ اللّٰهِ اِلَيۡكُمۡ مُّصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيۡنَ يَدَىَّ مِنَ التَّوۡرٰٮةِ وَمُبَشِّرًۢا بِرَسُوۡلٍ يَّاۡتِىۡ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِى اسۡمُهٗۤ اَحۡمَدُ​ؕ فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمۡ بِالۡبَيِّنٰتِ قَالُوۡا هٰذَا سِحۡرٌ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏

(The same happened when) Jesus son of Mary said, 'O Children of Israel! I am a Messenger of God to you. I confirm (the truth in) the Torah, and give you the good news of a Messenger to come after me whose name will be Ahmad (The praised One).' But when he has come to them with self-evident truth, they say, 'This is obvious magic (a spellbinding utterance).' [Gospel of John: 14:16, 15:26, 16:7 Paracletos = Comforter, from original Greek Periclytos = The praised one. In Aramaic, Mawhamana = The praised one]

Verse 61:7

وَمَنۡ اَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ افۡتَـرٰى عَلَى اللّٰهِ الۡكَذِبَ وَهُوَ يُدۡعٰٓى اِلَى الۡاِسۡلَامِ​ ؕ وَاللّٰهُ لَا يَهۡدِى الۡقَوۡمَ الظّٰلِمِيۡنَ‏

Who does greater wrong than he who invents a lie against God when he is invited to Islam? God does not guide the wrongdoers. [Zaalimeen = Those who relegate the truth = Oppressors = Those who displace something from its rightful place = Violators of human rights = Wrongdoers = Those who disregard moral Values]

Verse 61:8

يُرِيۡدُوۡنَ لِيُطۡفِــُٔـوۡا نُوۡرَ اللّٰهِ بِاَ فۡوَاهِهِمْ وَاللّٰهُ مُتِمُّ نُوۡرِهٖ وَلَوۡ كَرِهَ الۡكٰفِرُوۡنَ‏

هُوَ الَّذِىۡۤ اَرۡسَلَ رَسُوۡلَهٗ بِالۡهُدٰى وَدِيۡنِ الۡحَـقِّ لِيُظۡهِرَهٗ عَلَى الدِّيۡنِ كُلِّهٖ وَلَوۡ كَرِهَ الۡمُشۡرِكُوۡنَ‏

Verse 61:10

يٰۤاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا هَلۡ اَدُلُّكُمۡ عَلٰى تِجَارَةٍ تُنۡجِيۡكُمۡ مِّنۡ عَذَابٍ اَلِيۡمٍ‏
