Indeed, those who believed then disbelieved, then believed and again disbelieved—˹only˺ increasing in disbelief—Allah will neither forgive them nor guide them to the ˹Right˺ Way.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Give good news of a painful punishment to hypocrites,

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٣٩
who choose disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek honour and power through that company? Surely all honour and power belongs to Allah.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٤٠
He has already revealed to you in the Book that when you hear Allah’s revelations being denied or ridiculed, then do not sit in that company unless they engage in a different topic, or else you will be like them.1 Surely Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٤١
˹The hypocrites are˺ those who wait to see what happens to you. So if Allah grants you victory, they say ˹to you˺, “Were we not on your side?” But if the disbelievers have a share ˹of victory˺, they say ˹to them˺, “Did we not have the advantage over you, yet we protected you from the believers?” Allah will judge between ˹all of˺ you on the Day of Judgment. And Allah will never grant the disbelievers a way over the believers.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٤٢
Surely the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but He outwits them. When they stand up for prayer, they do it half-heartedly only to be seen by people—hardly remembering Allah at all.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٤٣
Torn between belief and disbelief—belonging neither to these ˹believers˺ nor those ˹disbelievers˺. And whoever Allah leaves to stray, you will never find for them a way.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٤٤
O believers! Do not take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Would you like to give Allah solid proof against yourselves?

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٤٥
Surely the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire—and you will never find for them any helper—

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

١٤٦
except those who repent, mend their ways, hold fast to Allah, and are sincere in their devotion to Allah; they will be with the believers. And Allah will grant the believers a great reward.
