Ahmed Ali

The number of months with God is twelve in accordance with God's law since the day He created the heavens and the earth. Of these four are holy. This is the straight reckoning. So do not exceed yourselves during them; but fight the idolaters to the end as they fight you in like manner; and remember, God is with those Who preserve themselves from evil and do the right.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (lo! the number of the months with allah) he says: the year is counted by months, i.e. the months of the year in which the poor-due is paid (is twelve months by allah's ordinance) in the guarded tablet (in the day) from the day (that he created the heavens and the earth. four of them) four of these months (are sacred): rajab, dhu'l-qa'dah, dhu'l-hijjah and muharram: (that is the right religion) that is the right calculation: it neither increases or decreases. (so wrong not) harm not (yourselves) through transgression (in them) in those months; it is also said: in the sacred months. (and wage war on all the idolaters) in the sacred months and in other months (as they are waging war on all of you) all together. (and know) o believers (that allah is with those who keep their duty (unto him)) with those who ward off disbelief, idolatry, indecencies, the breaking of treaties and fighting during the sacred months.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : verily the number of months, used to reckon the year, with god is twelve months in the book of god, the preserved tablet (al-lawh al-mahfūz), from the day that he created the heavens and the earth; four of them, that is, the months, are sacred, inviolable: dhū’l-qa‘da, dhū’l-hijja, muharram and rajab. that, making of them sacred, is the right, the upright, religion. so do not wrong yourselves during them, during these sacred months, with acts of disobedience, for their burden [of sin] is greater therein; but it is also said to mean [do not wrong yourselves] at any time during all the months [of the year]. and fight the idolaters altogether, all of them, throughout the months, even as they fight you altogether; and know that god is with those who fear him, supporting and assisting [them].
