مَن كَانَ يُرِيدُ ٱلۡعِزَّةَ فَلِلَّهِ ٱلۡعِزَّةُ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِلَيۡهِ يَصۡعَدُ ٱلۡكَلِمُ ٱلطَّيِّبُ وَٱلۡعَمَلُ ٱلصَّٰلِحُ يَرۡفَعُهُۥ ۚ وَٱلَّذِينَ يَمۡكُرُونَ ٱلسَّيِّـَٔاتِ لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ ۖ وَمَكۡرُ أُوْلَٰٓئِكَ هُوَ يَبُورُ
If any do seek for glory and power,- to Allah belong all glory and power. To Him mount up (all) Words of Purity: It is He Who exalts each Deed of Righteousness. Those that lay Plots of Evil,- for them is a Penalty terrible; and the plotting of such will be void (of result).<br/>
Whoever desires glory [should know that] all glory belongs to God, in this world and in the Hereafter, and it cannot be obtained from Him except through obedience to Him, so let such [a one] be obedient to Him. To Him ascends good words, that is to say, He is aware of such [good words], and these are [statements such as] 'there is no god except God' and the like; and as for righteous action, He exalts it, He accepts it; but those who plot evil, schemes against the Prophet - [as was the case] at the council assembly, in the way of imprisoning him, killing him or expelling him, as mentioned in [soorat] al-Anfaal [Q. 8:30] - theirs shall be a severe chastisement and their plotting shall come to nothing: it shall be ruined.
