5:6 O YOU who have attained to faith! When you are about to pray, wash your face, and your hands and arms up to the elbows, and pass your [wet] hands lightly over your head, and [wash] your feet up to the ankles. And if you are in a state. requiring total ablution, purify yourselves. But if you are ill, or are travelling, or have just satisfied a want of nature, or have cohabited with a woman, and can find no water-then take resort to pure dust, passing therewith lightly over your face and your hands. God does not want to impose any hardship on you, but wants to make you pure, and to bestow upon you the full measure of His blessings, so that you might have cause to be grateful.

Edip-Layth Pilgrimage 2:158 The serenity and chivalry are amongst God's emblems. Therefore, whosoever makes Pilgrimage to the sanctuary, or is merely passing through, commits no error by oscillating between them. Whoever volunteers for goodness; indeed God is Appreciative, Knowledgeable.
The Monotheist Group 2:158 The Safa and Marwah are amongst the symbols of God. So whosoever makes Pilgrimage to the Dwelling, or is merely passing through, commits no error that he should traverse within them. And whoever donates for goodness, then God is Appreciative, Knowledgeable.
Muhammad Asad 2:158 [Hence,] behold, As-Safa and Al-Marwah are among the symbols set up by God;126 and thus, no wrong does he who, having come to the Temple on pilgrimage or on a pious visit, strides to and fro between these two:127 for, if one does more good than he is bound to do-behold, God is responsive to gratitude, all-knowing.128

Salaat = Following God's commands closely 2:3. Wa in the middle of this verse merges with Salaat as indicated by 'God being with the steadfast', without mentioning Salaat in the end

Shabbir Ahmed - End Note 119 (2:154)
Death is like a prolonged state of sleep until the Resurrection Day (36:52). However, those who lay their lives in the cause of God, themselves, undergo an emergent evolution, and instantly find themselves in a state of bliss of the Next Life. And they get honorable provision from their Sustainer. 3:169

Abraham and Ishmael worked in the region of Mount Safa and Mount Marwah in Makkah, building the Ka'bah. There is nothing wrong in honoring such historical relics (2:177, 22:28). God has appointed the Ka'bah as the focal point for all humanity. And that is the real purpose behind the annual Hajj convention and, when announced by the Islamic Central authority, the 'Umrah conferences. 2:148, 2:196, 3:96, 22:27-28. Khair = Good things = Acts of benevolence = Community welfare = Peace and security = Betterment in both lives = Selfless service

Shabbir Ahmed - End Note 123 (2:159)
God has defined the objectives of the Hajj in this Book 22:28. Those who conceal the sublime purpose of these assemblies by making them senseless rituals, deprive humanity of a phenomenal blessing. La'nah = Condemnation = Rejection = Curse = Deprivation from grace. Laa'inoon = Those endowed with the sense of distinguishing right from wrong, and thus able to condemn. Related non-Qur'anic word, 'Al-la'een' = Scare-crow repelling the birds

Shabbir Ahmed - End Note 124 (2:160)
Taubah = Repentance = Turning to God = Returning to the right path. Salah = Corrective action = Reform = Making amends

Shabbir Ahmed - End Note 125 (2:161)
Condemnation of God = Deprivation of His grace. Condemnation of angels = Harm incurred for violating universal laws. Condemnation of mankind = Suffering at the hands of other nations

Muhammad Asad - The Message Of Quran
Muhammad Asad - End Note 125 (2:155)
Lit., "with something".

Muhammad Asad - End Note 126 (2:158)
Lit., "God's symbols". The space between the two low outcrops of rock called As-Safa and AI-Marwah, situated in Mecca in the immediate vicinity of the Ka`bah, is said to have been the scene of Hagar's suffering when Abraham, following God's command, abandoned her and their infant son Ishmael in the desert (see note 102 above). Distraught with thirst and fearing for the life of her child, Hagar ran to and fro between the two rocks and fervently prayed to God for succour: and, finally, her reliance on God and her patience were rewarded by the discovery of a spring-existing to this day and known as the Well of Zamzam - which saved the two from death through thirst. It was in remembrance of Hagar's extreme trial, and of her trust in God, that As-Safa and Al-Marwah had come to be regarded, even in pre-Islamic times, as symbols of faith and patience in adversity: and this explains their mention the context of the passages which deal with the virtues of patience and trust in God (Razi).

Muhammad Asad - End Note 127 (2:158)
It is in commemoration of Hagar's running in distress between As-Safa and Al-Marwah that the Mecca pilgrims are expected to walk, at a fast pace, seven times between these two hillocks. Because of the fact that in pre-Islamic times certain idols had been standing there, some of the early Muslims were reluctant to perform a rite which seemed to them to be associated with recent idolatry (Razi, on the authority of Ibn `Abbas). The above verse served to reassure them on this score by pointing out that this symbolic act of remembrance was much older than the idolatry practiced by the pagan Quraysh.

Muhammad Asad - End Note 128 (2:158)
From the phrase "if one does more good. than he is bound to do", read in conjunction with no wrong does he who..." (or, more literally, "there shall be no blame upon him who..."), some of the great Islamic scholars - e.g., Imam Abu Hanifah - conclude that the walking to and fro between As-Safa and Al-Marwah is not one of the obligatory rites of pilgrimage but rather a supererogatory act of piety (see Zamakhshari and Razi). Most scholars, however, hold the view that it is an integral part of the pilgrimage.

Muhammad Asad - End Note 129 (2:159)
Lit., "whom all who reject will reject" - i.e., all righteous persons who are able to judge moral issues. God's rejection (la`nah) denotes "exclusion from His grace" (Manar II, 50). In classical Arabic usage, the primary meaning of la'nah is equivalent to ib'ad ("estrangement" or "banishment"); in the terminology of the Qur'an, it signifies "rejection from all that is good" (Lisan al-Arab). According to Ibn `Abbas and several outstanding scholars of the next generation, the divine writ mentioned here is the Bible; thus, the above verse refers to the Jews and the Christians.
