M.Pickthall
11. O ye who believe! Let not a folk deride a folk who may be better than they (are), 
nor let women (deride) women who may be better than they are; neither defame one 
another, nor insult one another by nicknames. Bad is the name of lewdness after 
faith. And whoso turneth not in repentance, such are evil doers.
Yusuf Ali
11. O ye who believe! let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that 
the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: it 
may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic 
to each other nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name 
connoting wickedness (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do 
not desist are (Indeed) doing wrong.





M.Pickthall
12. O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. And 
spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of his 
dead brother? Ye abhor that (so abhor the other)! And keep your duty (to Allah). 
Lo! Allah is Relenting, Merciful.
Yusuf Ali
12. O ye who believe! avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some 
cases is a sin: and spy not on each other nor speak ill of each other behind their 
backs.  Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay ye would 
abhor it...but fear Allah: for Allah is Oft-Returning Most Merciful.





M.Pickthall
13. O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made `you nations 
and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of 
Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.
Yusuf Ali
13. O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made 
you into nations and tribes that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise 
each other).  Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) 
the most righteous of you.  And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted 
(with all things).
