16. Or think ye that ye shall be abandoned, as though Allah did not know those among

you who strive with might and main, and take none for friends and protectors except

Allah, His Messenger, and the (community of) Believers? But Allah is well- acquainted

with (all) that ye do.

Section 3 (17-24)

17. Ma kana lilmushrikeena an yaAAmuroo masajida Allahi shahideena AAala anfusihim

17. It is not for such as join gods with Allah, to visit or maintain the mosques of Allah

while they witness against their own souls to infidelity. The works of such bear no fruit:

In Fire shall they dwell.

18. The mosques of Allah shall be visited and maintained by such as believe in Allah and

the Last Day, establish regular prayers, and practise regular charity, and fear none (at all)

except Allah. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance.
