people. Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear signs, yet, even after
that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.
33. Innama jazao allatheena yuhariboona Allaha warasoolahu wayasAAawna fee al-ardi
fasadan an yuqattaloo aw yusallaboo aw tuqattaAAa aydeehim waarjuluhum min khilafin
aw yunfaw mina al-ardi thalika lahum khizyun fee a
ddunya walahum fee al-akhirati
33. The punishment of those who wage war against God and His Apostle, and strive with
might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting
off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in
this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
34. Illa allatheena taboo min qabli an taqdiroo AAalayhim fa
AAlamoo anna Allaha
34. Except for those who repent before they fall into your power: in that case, know that
God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
