1. O ye who believe! Take not my enemies and yours as friends (or protectors),- offering

them (your) love, even though they have rejected the Truth that has come to you, and

have (on the contrary) driven out the Prophet and yourselves (from your homes), (simply)

because ye believe in Allah your Lord! If ye have come out to strive in My Way and to

seek My Good Pleasure, (take them not as friends), holding secret converse of love (and

friendship) with them: for I know full well all that ye conceal and all that ye reveal. And

any of you that does this has strayed from the Straight Path.

2. If they were to get the better of you, they would behave to you as enemies, and stretch

forth their hands and their tongues against you for evil: and they desire that ye should

reject the Truth.

3. Of no profit to you will be your relatives and your children on the Day of Judgment:

He will judge between you: for Allah sees well all that ye do.
