24. And He it is Who hat withheld men's hands from you, and hath withheld your hands 
from them, in the valley of Mecca, after He had made you victors over them. Allah is 
Seer of what ye do.
Yusuf Ali
24. And it is He who has restrained their hands from you and your hand from them in 
the midst of Mecca after that He gave you the victory over them.  And Allah sees well 
all that ye do.

25. These it was who disbelieved and debarred you from the Inviolable Place of Worship, 
and debarred the offering from reaching its goal. And if it had not been for believing 
men and believing women, whom ye know not lest ye should tread them under foot and thus 
incur guilt for them unknowingly; that Allah might bring into His mercy whom He will. 
If (the believers and the disbelievers) had been clearly separated We verily had 
punished those of them who disbelieved with painful punishment.
Yusuf Ali
25. They are the ones who denied revelation and hindered you from the Sacred Mosque 
and the sacrificial animals detained from reaching their place of sacrifice.  Had 
there not been believing men and believing women whom ye did not know that ye were 
trampling down and on whose account a crime would have accrued to you without (your) 
knowledge.  (Allah would have allowed you to force your way but He held back your hands) 
that He may admit to His mercy whom He will.  If they had been apart We should certainly 
have punished the Unbelievers among them with a grievous punishment.

26. When those who disbelieve had set up in their hearts zealotry, the zealotry of the 
Age of Ignorance, then Allah sent down His peace of reassurance upon His messenger and 
upon the believers and imposed on them the word of self restraint, for they were worthy 
of it and meet for it. And Allah is Aware of all things.
Yusuf Ali
26. While the Unbelievers got up in their hearts heat and cant-the heat and cant of 
Ignorance Allah sent down His tranquillity to His Apostle and to the Believers and made 
them stick close to the command of self-restraint; and well were they entitled to it 
and worthy of it. And Allah has full knowledge of all things.
