Yusuf Ali And what cause have ye why ye should not spend in the cause of Allah?- For to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth. Not equal among you are those who spent (freely) and fought, before the Victory, (with those who did so later). Those are higher in rank than those who spent (freely) and fought afterwards. But to all has Allah promised a goodly (reward). And Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do.
Sahih International And why do you not spend in the cause of Allah while to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth? Not equal among you are those who spent before the conquest [of Makkah] and fought [and those who did so after it]. Those are greater in degree than they who spent afterwards and fought. But to all Allah has promised the best [reward]. And Allah, with what you do, is Acquainted.
Shakir And what reason have you that you should not spend in Allah´s way? And Allah´s is the inheritance of the heavens and the earth, not alike among you are those who spent before the victory and fought (and those who did not): they are more exalted in rank than those who spent and fought afterwards; and Allah has promised good to all; and Allah is Aware of what you do.
Pickthall And what aileth you that ye spend not in the way of Allah when unto Allah belongeth the inheritance of the heavens and the earth? Those who spent and fought before the victory are not upon a level (with the rest of you). Such are greater in rank than those who spent and fought afterwards. Unto each hath Allah promised good. And Allah is Informed of what ye do.
محمد جالندھری اور تم کو کیا ہوا ہے کہ خدا کے رستے میں خرچ نہیں کرتے حالانکہ آسمانوں اور زمین کی وراثت خدا ہی کی ہے۔ جس شخص نے تم میں سے فتح (مکہ) سے پہلے خرچ کیا اور لڑائی کی وہ (اور جس نے یہ کام پیچھے کئے وہ) برابر نہیں۔ ان کا درجہ ان لوگوں سے کہیں بڑھ کر ہے جنہوں نے بعد میں خرچ (اموال) اور (کفار سے) جہاد وقتال کیا۔ اور خدا نے سب سے (ثواب) نیک (کا) وعدہ تو کیا ہے۔ اور جو کام تم کرتے ہو خدا ان سے واقف ہے
