  • يَٰٓأَيُّهَا
  • ٱلَّذِينَ
  • ءَامَنُوا۟
  • لَا
  • تُبْطِلُوا۟
  • صَدَقَٰتِكُم
  • بِٱلْمَنِّ
  • وَٱلْأَذَىٰ
  • كَٱلَّذِى
  • يُنفِقُ
  • مَالَهُۥ
  • رِئَآءَ
  • ٱلنَّاسِ
  • وَلَا
  • يُؤْمِنُ
  • بِٱللَّهِ
  • وَٱلْيَوْمِ
  • ٱلْءَاخِرِ
  • ۖ
  • فَمَثَلُهُۥ
  • كَمَثَلِ
  • صَفْوَانٍ
  • عَلَيْهِ
  • تُرَابٌ
  • فَأَصَابَهُۥ
  • وَابِلٌ
  • فَتَرَكَهُۥ
  • صَلْدًا
  • ۖ
  • لَّا
  • يَقْدِرُونَ
  • عَلَىٰ
  • شَىْءٍ
  • مِّمَّا
  • كَسَبُوا۟
  • ۗ
  • وَٱللَّهُ
  • لَا
  • يَهْدِى
  • ٱلْقَوْمَ
  • ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ
  • Muhammad Habib Shakir: O you who believe! do not make your charity worthless by reproach and injury, like him who spends his property to be seen of men and does not believe in Allah and the last day; so his parable is as the parable of a smooth rock with earth upon it, then a heavy rain falls upon it, so it leaves it bare; they shall not be able to gain anything of what they have earned; and Allah does not guide the unbelieving people.
  • Abdullah Yusuf Ali: O ye who believe! cancel not your charity by reminders of your generosity or by injury,- like those who spend their substance to be seen of men, but believe neither in Allah nor in the Last Day. They are in parable like a hard, barren rock, on which is a little soil: on it falls heavy rain, which leaves it (Just) a bare stone. They will be able to do nothing with aught they have earned. And Allah guideth not those who reject faith.
  • M.Pickthall: O ye who believe! Render not vain your almsgiving by reproach and injury, like him who spendeth his wealth only to be seen of men and believeth not in Allah and the Last Day. His likeness is as the likeness of a rock whereon is dust of earth; a rainstorm smiteth it, leaving it smooth and bare. They have no control of aught of that which they have gained. Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk.
  • Amatul Rahmân Omer: O you who believe! Do not render void your charities by (a show of) obligation and injury, like him who spends his wealth to be seen by people and does not believe in Allâh and the Last Day. So his case is like the case of a smooth rock with some soil thereon, when heavy rain hits it leaves it bare and hard. They shall not be able to gain anything of what they accomplished. And Allâh does not guide such disbelieving people to the way of success.
  • Maulana Mohammad Ali: O you who believe, make not your charity worthless by reproach and injury, like him who spends his wealth to be seen of men and believes not in Allah and the Last Day. So His parable is as the parable of a smooth rock with earth upon it, then heavy rain falls upon it, so it leaves it bare! They are not able to gain anything of that which they earn. And Allah guides not the disbelieving people.
