And when you take off the pilgrim's garb then you may hunt (8). And let not the enmity of such people who prevent you to enter the Sacred Mosque incite (9) you to commit any excesses. And help each other in righteousness and piety, and help not one another in sin and transgression (10) and remain fearing Allah, Surely, the punishment of Allah is severe (11).
