8. Lo! We have sent thee (O Muhammad) as a witness and a bearer of good tidings and a 
Yusuf Ali
8. We have truly sent thee as a witness as a bringer of Glad Tidings and as a Warner:

9. That ye (mankind) may believe in Allah and His messenger, and may honor Him, and may 
revere Him, and may glorify Him at early dawn and at the close of day.
Yusuf Ali
9. In order that ye (o men) may believe in Allah and His Apostle that ye may assist 
and honor Him and celebrate his praises morning and evening.

10. Lo! those who swear allegiance unto thee (Muhammad), swear allegiance only unto 
Allah. The Hand of Allah is above their hands. So whosoever breaketh his oath, breaketh 
it only to his soul's hurt; while whosoever keepeth his covenant with Allah, on him 
will He bestow immense reward.
Yusuf Ali
10. Verily those who plight their fealty to thee do no less than plight their fealty 
to Allah: the Hand of Allah is over their hands: Then anyone who violates His oath 
does so to the harm of his own soul and anyone who fulfills what he has covenanted 
with Allah Allah will soon grant him a great Reward.

11. Those of the wandering Arabs who were left behind will tell thee: Our possessions 
and our households occupied us, so ask forgiveness for us! They speak with their 
tongues that which is not in their hearts. Say: Who can avail you aught against Allah, 
if he intend you hurt or intend you profit? Nay, but Allah is ever Aware of what ye do.
Yusuf Ali
11. The desert Arabs who lagged behind will say to thee: "We were engaged in (looking 
after) our flocks and herds and our families; do thou then ask forgiveness for us." 
They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts.  Say: "Who then has any 
power at all (to intervene) on your behalf with Allah if His will is to give you 
some loss or to give you some profit? but Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do.

12. Nay, but ye deemed that the messenger and the believers would never return to their 
own folk, and that was made fair seeming in your hearts, and ye did think an evil 
thought, and ye were worthless folk.
Yusuf Ali
12. "Nay ye thought that the Apostle and the Believers would never return to their 
families; this seemed pleasing in your hearts and ye conceived an evil thought for 
ye are a people lost (in wickedness)."

13. And as for him who believeth not in Allah and His messenger Lo! We have prepared 
a flame for disbelievers.
Yusuf Ali
13. And if any believe not in Allah and His Apostle We have prepared for those who 
reject Allah a Blazing Fire!

14. And Allah's is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. He forgiveth whom He 
will, and punisheth whom He will. And Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.
Yusuf Ali
14. To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: He forgives whom He 
wills and He punishes whom He wills: but Allah is Oft- Forgiving Most Merciful.
