AS-SAFF


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا أَنْصَارَ اللَّهِ كَمَا قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ لِلْحَوَارِيِّينَ مَنْ أَنْصَارِي إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ قَالَ الْحَوَارِيُّونَ نَحْنُ أَنْصَارُ اللَّهِ ۖ فَآمَنَتْ طَائِفَةٌ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَكَفَرَتْ طَائِفَةٌ ۖ فَأَيَّدْنَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا عَلَىٰ عَدُوِّهِمْ فَأَصْبَحُوا ظَاهِرِينَ ﴿١٤﴾
١٤ - مومنو! خدا کے مددگار بن جاؤ جیسے عیسیٰ ابن مریم نے حواریوں سے کہا کہ بھلا کون ہیں جو خدا کی طرف (بلانے میں) میرے مددگار ہوں۔ حواریوں نے کہا کہ ہم خدا کے مددگار ہیں۔ تو بنی اسرائیل میں سے ایک گروہ تو ایمان لے آیا اور ایک گروہ کافر رہا۔ آخر الامر ہم نے ایمان لانے والوں کو ان کے دشمنوں کے مقابلے میں مدد دی اور وہ غالب ہوگئے.
[61:14] O you who have believed, be supporters of Allah, as when Jesus, the son of Mary, said to the disciples, "Who are my supporters for Allah?" The disciples said, "We are supporters of Allah." And a faction of the Children of Israel believed and a faction disbelieved. So We supported those who believed against their enemy, and they became dominant.
