About Allah

The purpose of this webpage is to introduce Islam though verses in the Quran. Human interpretations of all of our Holy Books have lead to terrible difficulties among our various faiths. It is my hope that these verses from the Quran will unify rather than divide.

If the Quran is about anything it is about God - The Quran points to many things about God: What is His basic nature? Does He need or want anything from us? What are his attributes? How does He view our various religions? and so forth.

Here are some of the verses in the Quran that point to the nature of God. The verses are presented without interpretation or comment as the Quran is complete and detailed. May you find peace in your heart from these few verses from the Holy Quran. Peace be upon you.

Light 24:35

God is the light of the heavens and the earth. The allegory of His light is that of a concave mirror behind a lamp that is placed inside a glass container. The glass container is like a bright, pearl-like star. The fuel thereof is supplied from a blessed oil-producing tree, that is neither eastern, nor western. Its oil is almost self-radiating; needs no fire to ignite it. Light upon light. God guides to His light whoever wills (to be guided). God thus cites the parables for the people. God is fully aware of all things.

The Heifer 2:186

When My servants ask you about Me, I am always near. I answer their prayers when they pray to Me. The people shall respond to Me and believe in Me, in order to be guided.

The Heifer 2:26

God does not shy away from citing any kind of allegory, from the tiny mosquito and greater. As for those who believe, they know that it is the truth from their Lord.

The Heifer 2:28

How can you disbelieve in God when you were dead and He gave you life, then He puts you to death, then He brings you back to life, then to Him you ultimately return?

The Heifer 2:30

Recall that your Lord said to the angels, "I am placing a representative (a temporary god) on Earth." They said, "Will You place therein one who will spread evil therein and shed blood, while we sing Your praises, glorify You, and uphold Your absolute authority?" He said, "I know what you do not know."

The Heifer 2:62

Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who (1) believes in God, and (2) believes in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

The Heifer 2:77

Do they not know that God knows everything they conceal, and everything they declare?

The Heifer 2:97-98

Say, "Anyone who opposes Gabriel should know that he has brought down this (Quran) into your heart, in accordance with God's will, confirming previous scriptures, and providing guidance and good news for the believers." Anyone who opposes God, and His angels, and His messengers, and Gabriel and Michael, should know that God opposes the disbelievers.

The Heifer 2:103

If they believe and lead a righteous life, the reward from God is far better, if they only knew.

The Heifer 2:105

Neither the disbelievers among the followers of the scripture, nor the idol worshipers, wish to see any blessings come down to you from your Lord. However, God showers His blessings upon whomever He chooses. God possesses infinite grace.

Do you not recognize the fact that God possesses the kingship of the heavens and the earth; that you have none besides God as your Lord and Master?

The Heifer 2:113

The Jews said, "The Christians have no basis," while the Christians said, "The Jews have no basis." Yet, both of them read the scripture. Such are the utterances of those who possess no knowledge. God will judge them on the Day of Resurrection, regarding their disputes.

The Heifer 2:255

God: there is no other god besides Him, the Living, the Eternal. Never a moment of unawareness or slumber overtakes Him. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. Who could intercede with Him, except in accordance with His will? He knows their past, and their future. No one attains any knowledge, except as He wills. His dominion encompasses the heavens and the earth, and ruling them never burdens Him. He is the Most High, the Great.

The Heifer 2:256-257

There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in God has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. God is Hearer, Omniscient. God is Lord of those who believe; He leads them out of darkness into the light. As for those who disbelieve, their lords are their idols; they lead them out of the light into darkness - these will be the dwellers of Hell; they abide in it forever.

The Amramites 3:86

Why should God guide people who disbelieved after believing, and after witnessing that the messenger is truth, and after solid proofs have been given to them? God does not guide the wicked.

He specifies His mercy for whomever He wills; God possesses unlimited grace.

Let not those who withhold and hoard God's provisions think that this is good for them; it is bad for them. For they will carry their hoardings around their necks on the Day of Resurrection. God is the ultimate inheritor of the heavens and the earth. God is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

The Amramites 3:195

Their Lord responded to them: "I never fail to reward any worker among you for any work you do, be you male or female - you are equal to one another. Thus, those who immigrate, and get evicted from their homes, and are persecuted because of Me, and fight and get killed, I will surely remit their sins and admit them into gardens with flowing streams." Such is the reward from God. God possesses the ultimate reward.

Women 4:1

O people, observe your Lord; the One who created you from one being, and created from it its mate, then spread from the two many men and women. You shall regard God, by whom you swear, and regard the parents. God is watching over you.

Repentance is acceptable by God from those who fall in sin out of ignorance, then repent immediately thereafter. God redeems them. God is Omniscient, Most Wise.

Women 4:40

God does not inflict an atom's weight of injustice. On the contrary, He multiplies the reward manifold for the righteous work, and grants from Him a great recompense.

Women 4:45

God knows best who your enemies are. God is the only Lord and Master. God is the only Supporter.

Women 4:48

God does not forgive idolatry, but He forgives lesser offenses for whomever He wills. Anyone who sets up idols beside God, has forged a horrendous offense.

Women 4:78-79

Wherever you are, death will catch up with you, even if you live in formidable castles. When something good happens to them, they say, "This is from God," and when something bad afflicts them, they blame you. Say, "Everything comes from God." Why do these people misunderstand almost everything? Anything good that happens to you is from God, and anything bad that happens to you is from you. We have sent you as a messenger to the people, and God suffices as witness.

Women 4:87

God: there is no god except He. He will surely summon you on the Day of Resurrection - the inevitable day. Whose narration is more truthful than God's?

Women 4:126

To God belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. God is in full control of all things.

Women 4:134

Anyone who seeks the materials of this world should know that God possesses both the materials of this world and the Hereafter. God is Hearer, Seer.

Women 4:146-147

Only those who repent, reform, hold fast to God, and devote their religion absolutely to God alone, will be counted with the believers. God will bless the believers with a great recompense. What will God gain from punishing you, if you became appreciative and believed? God is Appreciative, Omniscient.

Women 4:175

Those who believe in God, and hold fast to Him, He will admit them into mercy from Him, and grace, and will guide them to Him in a straight path.

God is Bounteous, Omniscient.

The Feast 5:69

Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the converts, and the Christians; any of them who (1) believe in God and (2) believe in the Last Day, and (3) lead a righteous life, have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

The Feast 5:76

Say, "Would you worship beside God powerless idols who can neither harm you, nor benefit you? God is Hearer, Omniscient."

The Feast 5:87

O you who believe, do not prohibit good things that are made lawful by God, and do not aggress; God dislikes the aggressors.

The Feast 5:98

Know that God is strict in enforcing retribution, and that God is Forgiving, Most Merciful.

The Feast 5:105

O you who believe, you should worry only about your own necks. If the others go astray, they cannot hurt you, as long as you are guided. To God is your ultimate destiny, all of you, then He will inform you of everything you had done.

The Feast 5:110

God will say, "O Jesus, son of Mary, remember My blessings upon you and your mother. I supported you with the Holy Spirit, to enable you to speak to the people from the crib, as well as an adult. I taught you the scripture, wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel. Recall that you created from clay the shape of a bird by My leave, then blew into it, and it became a live bird by My leave. You healed the blind and the leprous by My leave, and revived the dead by My leave. Recall that I protected you from the Children of Israel who wanted to hurt you, despite the profound miracles you had shown them. The disbelievers among them said, `This is obviously magic.'

The Feast 5:119

God will proclaim, "This is a day when the truthful will be saved by their truthfulness." They have deserved gardens with flowing streams. They abide therein forever. God is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. This is the greatest triumph.

Livestock 6:3

He is the one God in the heavens and the earth. He knows your secrets and your declarations, and He knows everything you earn.

Livestock 6:36

The only ones to respond are those who listen. God resurrects the dead; they ultimately return to Him.

Livestock 6:62

Then everyone is returned to God, their rightful Lord and Master. Absolutely, He is the ultimate judge; He is the most accurate reckoner.

Livestock 6:95

God is the One who causes the grains and the seeds to crack and germinate. He produces the living from the dead, and the dead from the living. Such is God; how could you deviate!

Livestock 6:102

Such is God your Lord, there is no god except He, the Creator of all things. You shall worship Him alone. He is in control of all things.

Livestock 6:114

Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? Those who received the scripture recognize that it has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt.

Livestock 6:125

Whomever God wills to guide, He renders his chest wide open to Submission. And whomever He wills to send astray, He renders his chest intolerant and straitened, like one who climbs towards the sky. God thus places a curse upon those who refuse to believe.

Livestock 6:159-160

"Those who divide themselves into sects do not belong with you. Their judgment rests with God, then He will inform them of everything they had done. Whoever does a righteous work receives the reward for ten, and the one who commits a sin is requited for only one. No one suffers the slightest injustice.

Livestock 6:162

Say, "My Contact Prayers (Salat), my worship practices, my life and my death, are all devoted absolutely to God alone, the Lord of the universe.

The Livestock 6:151-152

Say, "Come let me tell you what your Lord has really prohibited for you: You shall not set up idols besides Him. You shall honor your parents. You shall not kill your children from fear of poverty - we provide for you and for them. You shall not commit gross sins, obvious or hidden. You shall not kill - God has made life sacred - except in the course of justice. These are His commandments to you, that you may understand." You shall not touch the orphans' money except in the most righteous manner, until they reach maturity. You shall give full weight and full measure when you trade, equitably. We do not burden any soul beyond its means. You shall be absolutely just when you bear witness, even against your relatives. You shall fulfill your covenant with God. These are His commandments to you, that you may take heed.

The Purgatory 7:28

They commit a gross sin, then say, "We found our parents doing this, and God has commanded us to do it." Say, "God never advocates sin. Are you saying about God what you do not know?"

The Purgatory 7:32-33

Say, "Who prohibited the nice things God has created for His creatures, and the good provisions?" Say, "Such provisions are to be enjoyed in this life by those who believe. Moreover, the good provisions will be exclusively theirs on the Day of Resurrection." We thus explain the revelations for people who know. Say, "My Lord prohibits only evil deeds, be they obvious or hidden, and sins, and unjustifiable aggression, and to set up beside God powerless idols, and to say about God what you do not know."

The Purgatory 7:54

Your Lord is the one God, who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then assumed all authority. The night overtakes the day, as it pursues it persistently, and the sun, the moon, and the stars are committed to serve by His command. Absolutely, He controls all creation and all commands. Most Exalted is God, Lord of the universe.

The Purgatory 7:87

"Now that some of you have believed in what I was sent with, and some have disbelieved, wait until God issues His judgment between us; He is the best judge."

The Purgatory 7:158

Say, "O people, I am God's messenger to all of you. To Him belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. There is no god except He. He controls life and death."

Whomever God guides is the truly guided one, and whomever He commits to straying, these are the losers.

The Purgatory7:196

"God is my only Lord and Master; the One who revealed this scripture. He protects the righteous.

The Spoils of War 8:10

God gave you this good news to strengthen your hearts. Victory comes only from God. God is Almighty, Most Wise.

The Spoils of War 8:17-19

It was not you who killed them; God is the One who killed them. It was not you who threw when you threw; God is the One who threw. But He thus gives the believers a chance to earn a lot of credit. God is Hearer, Omniscient. Additionally, God thus nullifies the schemes of the disbelievers. You sought victory (O disbelievers), and victory did come; it belonged to the believers. If you refrain (from aggression) it would be better for you, but if you return, so will we. Your armies will never help you, no matter how great. For God is on the side of the believers.

The Spoils of War 8:25

Beware of a retribution that may not be limited to the evildoers among you. You should know that God's retribution is severe.

The Spoils of War 8:28-29

You should know that your money and your children are a test, and that God possesses a great recompense. O you who believe, if you reverence God, He will enlighten you, remit your sins, and forgive you. God possesses infinite grace.

The Spoils of War 8:37

God will sift away the bad from the good, then pile the bad on top of each other, all in one pile, then throw it in Hell. Such are the losers.

The Spoils of War 8:53

God does not change a blessing He has bestowed upon any people unless they themselves decide to change. God is Hearer, Omniscient.

The Spoils of War 8:58

The worst creatures in the sight of God are those who disbelieved; they cannot believe.

The Spoils of War 8:61-62

If they resort to peace, so shall you, and put your trust in God. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient. If they want to deceive you, then God will suffice you. He will help you with His support, and with the believers.

The Spoils of War 8:67

No prophet shall acquire captives, unless he participates in the fighting. You people are seeking the materials of this world, while God advocates the Hereafter. God is Almighty, Most Wise.

The Spoils of War 8:70

O you prophet, tell the prisoners of war in your hands, "If God knew of anything good in your hearts, He would have given you better than anything you have lost, and would have forgiven you. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful."

Ultimatum 9:21

Their Lord gives them good news: mercy and approval from Him, and gardens where they rejoice in everlasting bliss.

Ultimatum 9:31

They have set up their religious leaders and scholars as lords, instead of God. Others deified the Messiah, son of Mary. They were all commanded to worship only one god. There is no god except He. Be He glorified, high above having any partners.

Ultimatum 9:60

Charities shall go to the poor, the needy, the workers who collect them, the new converts, to free the slaves, to those burdened by sudden expenses, in the cause of God, and to the traveling alien. Such is God's commandment. God is Omniscient, Most Wise.

Ultimatum 9:78

Do they not realize that God knows their secrets, and their conspiracies, and that God is the Knower of all secrets?

Ultimatum 9:104

Do they not realize that God accepts the repentance of His worshipers, and takes the charities, and that God is the Redeemer, Most Merciful?

Jonah 10:3-5

Your only Lord is God; the One who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then assumed all authority. He controls all matters. There is no intercessor, except in accordance with His will. Such is God your Lord. You shall worship Him. Would you not take heed? To Him is your ultimate return, all of you. This is God's truthful promise. He initiates the creation, then repeats it, in order to reward those who believe and lead a righteous life, equitably. As for those who disbelieve, they incur hellish drinks, and a painful retribution for their disbelieving. He is the One who rendered the sun radiant, and the moon a light, and He designed its phases that you may learn to count the years and to calculate. God did not create all this, except for a specific purpose. He explains the revelations for people who know.

Jonah 10:11

If God hastened the retribution incurred by the people, the way they demand provisions, they would have been annihilated long ago. However, we leave those who do not believe in meeting us in their transgressions, blundering.

Jonah 10:25

God invites to the abode of peace, and guides whomever He wills in a straight path.

Jonah 10:31-32

Say, "Who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Who controls all the hearing and the eyesight? Who produces the living from the dead, and the dead from the living? Who is in control of all things?" They would say, "God." Say, "Why then do you not observe the commandments?" Such is God, your rightful Lord. What is there after the truth, except falsehood? How could you disregard all this?

Jonah 10:37

This Quran could not possibly be authored by other than God. It confirms all previous messages, and provides a fully detailed scripture. It is infallible, for it comes from the Lord of the universe.

Jonah 10:44-46

God never wrongs the people; it is the people who wrong their own souls. On the day when He summons all of them, they will feel as if they lasted in this world one hour of the day, during which they met. Losers indeed are those who disbelieved in meeting God; and chose to be misguided. Whether we show you some (of the retribution) we promise them, or terminate your life before that, to us is their ultimate return. God witnesses everything they do.

Jonah 10:60

Does it ever occur to those who fabricate lies about God that they will have to face Him on the Day of Resurrection? Certainly, God showers the people with His grace, but most of them are unappreciative.

Jonah 10:64-66

For them, joy and happiness in this world, as well as in the Hereafter. This is God's unchangeable law. Such is the greatest triumph. Do not be saddened by their utterances. All power belongs to God. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient. Absolutely, to God belongs everyone in the heavens and everyone on earth. Those who set up idols beside God are really following nothing. They only think that they are following something. They only guess.

Jonah 10:68-69

They said, "God has begotten a son!" Be He glorified. He is the Most Rich. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. You have no proof to support such a blasphemy. Are you saying about God what you do not know? Proclaim: "Those who fabricate lies about God will never succeed."

Jonah 10:100

No soul can believe except in accordance with God's will. For He places a curse upon those who refuse to understand.

Jonah 10:109

Follow what is revealed to you, and be patient until God issues His judgment; He is the best judge.

Hood 11:4

To God is your ultimate return, and He is Omnipotent.

Hood 11:6

There is not a creature on earth whose provision is not guaranteed by God. And He knows its course and its final destiny. All are recorded in a profound record.

Hood 11:18

Who are more evil than those who fabricate lies about God? They will be presented before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, "These are the ones who lied about their Lord. God's condemnation has befallen the transgressors."

Hood 11:115

You shall steadfastly persevere, for God never fails to recompense the righteous.

Hood 11:123

To God belongs the future of the heavens and the earth, and all matters are controlled by Him. You shall worship Him and trust in Him. Your Lord is never unaware of anything you do.

Joseph 12:39-40

"O my prison mates, are several gods better, or God alone, the One, the Supreme? "You do not worship beside Him except innovations that you have made up, you and your parents. God has never authorized such idols. All ruling belongs to God, and He has ruled that you shall not worship except Him. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.

Joseph 12:52

"I hope that he will realize that I never betrayed him in his absence, for God does not bless the schemes of the betrayers.

Thunder 13:2

God is the One who raised the heavens without pillars that you can see, then assumed all authority. He committed the sun and the moon, each running (in its orbit) for a predetermined period. He controls all things, and explains the revelations, that you may attain certainty about meeting your Lord.

Thunder 13:8

God knows what every female bears, and what every womb releases, or gains. Everything He does is perfectly measured.

Thunder 13:11

Shifts (of angels) take turns, staying with each one of you - they are in front of you and behind you. They stay with you, and guard you in accordance with God's commands. Thus, God does not change the condition of any people unless they themselves make the decision to change. If God wills any hardship for any people, no force can stop it. For they have none beside Him as Lord and Master.

Thunder 13:15

To God prostrates everyone in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and so do their shadows in the mornings and the evenings.

Thunder 13:16-17

Say, "Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?" Say, "God." Say, "Why then do you set up besides Him masters who do not possess any power to benefit or harm even themselves?" Say, "Is the blind the same as the seer? Is darkness the same as the light?" Have they found idols besides God who created creations similar to His creations, to the point of not distinguishing the two creations? Say, "God is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Supreme." He sends down water from the sky, causing the valleys to overflow, then the rapids produce abundant foam. Similarly, when they use fire to refine metals for their jewelry or equipment, foam is produced. God thus cites analogies for the truth and falsehood. As for the foam, it goes to waste, while that which benefits the people stays close to the ground. God thus cites the analogies.

Thunder 13:26

God is the One who increases the provision for whomever He wills, or withholds it. They have become preoccupied with this life, and this life, compared to the Hereafter, is nil.

Thunder 13:31

Even if a Quran caused mountains to move, or the earth to tear asunder, or the dead to speak (they will not believe). God controls all things. Is it not time for the believers to give up and realize that if God willed, He could have guided all the people? The disbelievers will continue to suffer disasters, as a consequence of their own works, or have disasters strike close to them, until God's promise is fulfilled. God will never change the predetermined destiny.

Thunder 13:39

God erases whatever He wills, and fixes. With Him is the original Master Record.

Thunder 13:41-42

Do they not see that every day on earth, brings them closer to the end, and that God decides their life span, irrevocably? He is the most efficient Reckoner. Others before them have schemed, but to God belongs the ultimate scheming. He knows what everyone is doing. The disbelievers will find out who the ultimate winners are.

Abraham 14:4

We did not send any messenger except (to preach) in the tongue of his people, in order to clarify things for them. God then sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. He is the Almighty, the Most Wise.

Abraham 14:7

Your Lord has decreed: "the more you thank me, the more I give you." But if you turn unappreciative, then My retribution is severe.

Abraham 14:10-12

Their messengers said, "Do you have doubts about God; the Initiator of the heavens and the earth? He invites you only to forgive your sins, and to give you another chance to redeem yourselves." They said, "You are no more than humans like us, who want to repel us from the way our parents used to worship. Show us some profound authority." Their messengers said to them, "We are no more than humans like you, but God blesses whomever He chooses from among His servants. We could not possibly show you any kind of authorization, except in accordance with God's will. In God the believers shall trust. "Why should we not trust in God, when He has guided us in our paths? We will steadfastly persevere in the face of your persecution. In God all the trusters shall trust."

Abraham 14:19-20

Do you not realize that God has created the heavens and the earth for a specific purpose? If He wills, He can remove you, and substitute a new creation in your place. This is not too difficult for God.

Abraham 14:24-25

Do you not see that God has cited the example of the good word as a good tree whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches are high in the sky? It produces its crop every season, as designed by its Lord. God thus cites the examples for the people, that they may take heed.

Abraham 14:27

God strengthens those who believe with the proven word, in this life and in the Hereafter. And God sends the transgressors astray. Everything is in accordance with God's will.

Abraham 14:32-34

God is the One who created the heavens and the earth, and He sends down from the sky water to produce all kinds of fruit for your sustenance. He has committed the ships to serve you on the sea in accordance with His command. He has committed the rivers as well to serve you. He has committed the sun and the moon in your service, continuously. He has committed the night and the day to serve you. And He gives you all kinds of things that you implore Him for. If you count God's blessings, you can never encompass them. Indeed, the human being is transgressing, unappreciative.

Abraham 14:42

Do not ever think that God is unaware of what the transgressors are doing. He only respites them until a day where the eyes stare in horror.

Abraham 14:47-48

Do not think that God will ever break His promise to His messengers. God is Almighty, Avenger. The day will come when this earth will be substituted with a new earth, and also the heavens, and everyone will be brought before God, the One, the Supreme.

Abraham 14:51

For God will pay each soul for whatever it earned; God is the most efficient reckoner.

The Bee 16:1-2

God's command has already been issued (and everything has already been written), so do not rush it. Be He glorified; the Most High, far above any idols they set up. He sends down the angels with the revelations, carrying His commands, to whomever He chooses from among His servants: "You shall preach that there is no other god beside Me; You shall reverence Me."

The Bee 16:9

God points out the paths, including the wrong ones. If He willed, He could have guided all of you.

The Bee 16:18-20

If you count God's blessings, you cannot possibly encompass them. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful. And God knows whatever you conceal and whatever you declare. As for the idols they set up beside God, they do not create anything; they themselves were created.

The Bee 16:36-38

We have sent a messenger to every community, saying, "You shall worship God, and avoid idolatry." Subsequently, some were guided by God, while others were committed to straying. Roam the earth and note the consequences for the rejectors. No matter how hard you try to guide them, God does not guide the ones He had committed to straying. Thus, no one can help them. They swore solemnly by God: "God will not resurrect the dead." Absolutely, such is His inviolable promise, but most people do not know.

The Bee 16:48-49

Have they not seen all the things created by God? Their shadows surround them right and left, in total submission to God, and willingly. To God prostrates everything in the heavens and everything on earth - every creature - and so do the angels; without the least arrogance.

The Bee 16:51-53

God has proclaimed: "Do not worship two gods; there is only one god. You shall reverence Me alone. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and the earth and therefore, the religion shall be devoted absolutely to Him alone. Would you worship other than God? Any blessing you enjoy is from God. Yet, whenever you incur any adversity you immediately complain to Him.

The Bee 16:60-61

Those who do not believe in the Hereafter set the worst examples, while to God belongs the most sublime examples. He is the Almighty, the Most Wise. If God punished the people for their transgressions, He would have annihilated every creature on earth. But He respites them for a specific, predetermined time. Once their interim ends, they cannot delay it by one hour, nor advance it.

The Bee 16:70-72

God created you, then He terminates your lives. He lets some of you live to the oldest age, only to find out that there is a limit to the knowledge they can acquire. God is Omniscient, Omnipotent. God has provided for some of you more than others. Those who are given plenty would never give their properties to their subordinates to the extent of making them partners. Would they give up God's blessings? And God made for you spouses from among yourselves, and produced for you from your spouses children and grandchildren, and provided you with good provisions. Should they believe in falsehood, and turn unappreciative of God's blessings?

The Bee 16:77-81

To God belongs the future of the heavens and the earth. As far as He is concerned, the end of the world (the Hour) is a blink of an eye away, or even closer. God is Omnipotent. God brought you out of your mothers' bellies knowing nothing, and He gave you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brains, that you may be appreciative. Do they not see the birds committed to fly in the atmosphere of the sky? None holds them up in the air except God. This should be (sufficient) proof for people who believe. And God provided for you stationary homes where you can live. And He provided for you portable homes made of the hides of livestock, so you can use them when you travel, and when you settle down. And from their wools, furs, and hair, you make furnishings and luxuries for awhile. And God provided for you shade through things which He created, and provided for you shelters in the mountains, and provided for you garments that protect you from heat, and garments that protect when you fight in wars. He thus perfects His blessings upon you, that you may submit.

The Bee 16:93

Had God willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He sends astray whoever chooses to go astray, and He guides whoever wishes to be guided. You will surely be asked about everything you have done.

The Bee 16:96

What you possess runs out, but what God possesses lasts forever. We will surely reward those who steadfastly persevere; we will recompense them for their righteous works.

The Bee 16:115

He only prohibits for you dead animals, blood, the meat of pigs, and food which is dedicated to other than God. If one is forced (to eat these), without being deliberate or malicious, then God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

The Bee 16:128

God is with those who lead a righteous life, and those who are charitable.

The Children of Israel 17:96-97

Say, "God suffices as a witness between me and you. He is fully Cognizant of His worshipers, Seer." Whomever God guides is the truly guided one. And whomever He sends astray, you will never find for them any lords and masters beside Him. We will summon them on the Day of Resurrection forcibly; blind, dumb, and deaf. Their destination is Hell; whenever it cools down, we will increase their fire.

The Children of Isreal 17:110-111

Say, "Call Him God, or call Him Most Gracious; whichever name you use, to Him belongs the best names." You shall not utter your Contact Prayers (Salat) too loudly, nor secretly; use a moderate tone. And proclaim: "Praise be to God, who has never begotten a son, nor does He have a partner in His kingship, nor does He need any ally out of weakness," and magnify Him constantly.

The Cave 18:0-1

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise God, who revealed to His servant this scripture, and made it flawless.

The Cave 18:43-45

No force on earth could have helped him against God, nor was it possible for him to receive any help. That is because the only true Lord and master is God; He provides the best recompense, and with Him is the best destiny. Cite for them the example of this life as water that we send down from the sky to produce plants of the earth, then they turn into hay that is blown away by the wind. God is able to do all things.

The Cave 18:102

Do those who disbelieve think that they can get away with setting up My servants as gods beside Me? We have prepared for the disbelievers Hell as an eternal abode.

The Spider 19:19-20

Have they not seen how God initiates the creation, then repeats it? This is easy for God to do. Say, "Roam the earth and find out the origin of life." For God will thus initiate the creation in the Hereafter. God is Omnipotent.

Mary 19:76

God augments the guidance of those who choose to be guided. For the good deeds are eternally rewarded by your Lord, and bring far better returns.

Ta Ha 20:8

God: there is no other god besides Him. To Him belong the most beautiful names.

Ta Ha 20:14

"I am God; there is no other god beside Me. You shall worship Me alone, and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) to remember Me.

Ta Ha 20:98

Your only god is God; the One beside whom there is no other god. His knowledge encompasses all things.

The Prophets 21:21-22

Have they found gods on earth who can create? If there were in them (the heavens and the earth) other gods beside God, there would have been chaos. Glory be to God; the Lord with absolute authority. He is high above their claims.

The Prophets 21:25

We did not send any messenger before you except with the inspiration: "There is no god except Me; you shall worship Me alone."

The Pilgrimage 22:6-7

This proves that God is the Truth, and that He revives the dead, and that He is Omnipotent. And that the Hour is coming, no doubt about it, and that God resurrects those who are in the graves.

The Pilgrimage 22:14

God admits those who believe and lead a righteous life into gardens with flowing streams. Everything is in accordance with God's will.

The Pilgrimate 22:17-18

Those who believe, those who are Jewish, the converts, the Christians, the Zoroastrians, and the idol worshipers, God is the One who will judge among them on the Day of Resurrection. God witnesses all things. Do you not realize that to God prostrates everyone in the heavens and the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the animals, and many people? Many others among the people are committed to doom. Whomever God shames, none will honor him. Everything is in accordance with God's will.

The Pilgrimage 22:23

God will admit those who believe and lead a righteous life into gardens with flowing streams. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold, and pearls, and their garments therein will be silk.

The Pilgrimage 22:52

We did not send before you any messenger, nor a prophet, without having the devil interfere in his wishes. God then nullifies what the devil has done. God perfects His revelations. God is Omniscient, Most Wise.

The Pilgrimage 22:61-65

It is a fact that God merges the night into the day, and merges the day into the night, and that God is Hearer, Seer. It is a fact that God is the Truth, while the setting up of any idols beside Him constitutes a falsehood, and that God is the Most High, the Supreme. Do you not see that God sends down from the sky water that turns the land green? God is Sublime, Cognizant. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. Absolutely, God is the Most Rich, Most Praiseworthy. Do you not see that God has committed in your service everything on earth? The ships run in the ocean by His command. He prevents the heavenly bodies from crashing onto the earth, except in accordance with His command. God is Most Kind towards the people, Most Merciful.

The Pilgrimage 22:69-70

God will judge among you on the Day of Resurrection regarding all your disputes. Do you not realize that God knows everything in the heavens and everything on earth? All this is recorded in a record. This is easy for God to do.

The Pilgrimage 22:75-76

God chooses from among the angels messengers, as well as from among the people. God is Hearer, Seer. He knows their past and their future. To God belongs the ultimate control of all matters.

The Believers 23:14

Then we developed the drop into a hanging (embryo), then developed the hanging (embryo) into a bite-size (fetus), then created the bite-size (fetus) into bones, then covered the bones with flesh. We thus produce a new creature. Most blessed is God, the best Creator.

The Believers 23:91

God has never begotten a son. Nor was there ever any other god besides Him. Otherwise, each god would have declared independence with his creations, and they would have competed with each other for dominance. God be glorified; far above their claims.

The Believers 23:116

Most exalted is God, the true Sovereign. There is no other god beside Him; the Most Honorable Lord, possessor of all authority.

Light 24:19-20

Those who love to see immorality spread among the believers have incurred a painful retribution in this life and in the Hereafter. God knows, while you do not know. God showers you with His grace and mercy. God is Most Kind towards the believers, Most Merciful.

Light 24:37-46

People who are not distracted by business or trade from commemorating God; they observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and they are conscious of the day when the minds and the eyes will be horrified. God will certainly reward them for their good works, and will shower them with His grace. God provides for whomever He wills without limits. As for those who disbelieve, their works are like a mirage in the desert. A thirsty person thinks that it is water. But when he reaches it, he finds that it is nothing, and he finds God there instead, to requite him fully for his works. God is the most efficient reckoner. Another allegory is that of being in total darkness in the midst of a violent ocean, with waves upon waves, in addition to thick fog. Darkness upon darkness - if he looked at his own hand, he could barely see it. Whomever God deprives of light, will have no light. Do you not realize that everyone in the heavens and the earth glorifies God, even the birds as they fly in a column? Each knows its prayer and its glorification. God is fully aware of everything they do. To God belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, and to God is the final destiny. Do you not realize that God drives the clouds, then gathers them together, then piles them on each other, then you see the rain coming out of them? He sends down from the sky loads of snow to cover whomever He wills, while diverting it from whomever He wills. The brightness of the snow almost blinds the eyes. God controls the night and day. This should be a lesson for those who possess eyes. And God created every living creature from water. Some of them walk on their bellies, some walk on two legs, and some walk on four. God creates whatever He wills. God is Omnipotent. We have sent down to you clarifying revelations, then God guides whoever wills (to be guided) in a straight path.

Light 24:55

God promises those among you who believe and lead a righteous life, that He will make them sovereigns on earth, as He did for those before them, and will establish for them the religion He has chosen for them, and will substitute peace and security for them in place of fear. All this because they worship Me alone; they never set up any idols beside Me. Those who disbelieve after this are the truly wicked.

Light 24:64

Absolutely, to God belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. He fully knows every condition you may be in. The day you are returned to Him, He will inform them of everything they had done. God is fully aware of all things.

The Statute Book 25:71

Exempted are those who repent, believe, and lead a righteous life. God transforms their sins into credits. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful. Those who repent and lead a righteous life, God redeems them; a complete redemption.

The Poets 26:213

Therefore, do not idolize beside God any other god, lest you incur the retribution.

The Poets 26:227

Exempted are those who believe, lead a righteous life, commemorate God frequently, and stand up for their rights. Surely, the transgressors will find out what their ultimate destiny is.

The Ant 27:25-26

They should have been prostrating before God, the One who manifests all the mysteries in the heavens and the earth, and the One who knows everything you conceal and everything you declare. God: there is no other god beside Him; the Lord with the great dominion.

The Ant 27:60-65

Who is the One who created the heavens and the earth? Who is the One who sends down to you from the sky water, whereby we produce gardens full of beauty - you could not possibly manufacture its trees? Is it another god with God? Indeed, they are people who have deviated. Who is the One who made the earth habitable, caused rivers to run through it, placed on it mountains, and created a barrier between the two waters? Is it another god with God? Indeed, most of them do not know. Who is the One who rescues those who become desperate and call upon Him, relieves adversity, and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is it another god with God? Rarely do you take heed. Who is the One who guides you in the darkness of land and sea? Who is the One who sends the winds with good news, signaling His mercy? Is it another god with God? Most exalted is God, above having any partner. Who is the One who initiates the creation, then repeats it? Who is the One who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Is it another god with God? Say, "Show me your proof, if you are truthful." Say, "No one in the heavens and the earth knows the future except God. They do not even perceive how or when they will be resurrected."

The Ant 27:75

There is nothing in the heavens and the earth that is hidden (from God); everything is in a profound record.

The Ant 27:87-88

On the day when the horn is blown, everyone in the heavens and the earth will be horrified, except those chosen by God. All will come before Him, forcibly. When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds. Such is the manufacture of God, who perfected everything. He is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

The Ants 27:93

And say, "Praise be to God; He will show you His proofs, until you recognize them. Your Lord is never unaware of anything you do."

History 28:56

You cannot guide the ones you love. God is the only One who guides in accordance with His will, and in accordance with His knowledge of those who deserve the guidance.

History 28:68

Your Lord is the One who creates whatever He wills, and chooses; no one else does any choosing. Glory be to God, the Most Exalted. He is far above needing partners.

History 28:70

He is the one God; there is no other god beside Him. To Him belongs all praise in this first life, and in the Hereafter. All judgment belongs with Him, and to Him you will be returned.

History 28:77-78

"Use the provisions bestowed upon you by God to seek the abode of the Hereafter, without neglecting your share in this world. Be charitable, as God has been charitable towards you. Do not keep on corrupting the earth. God does not love the corruptors." He said, "I attained all this because of my own cleverness." Did he not realize that God had annihilated before him generations that were much stronger than he, and greater in number? The (annihilated) transgressors were not asked about their crimes.

History 28:88

You shall not worship beside God any other god. There is no other god beside Him. Everything perishes except His presence. To Him belongs all sovereignty, and to Him you will be returned.

The Spider 29:5-6

Anyone hoping to meet God, (should know that) such a meeting with God will most assuredly come to pass. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient. Those who strive, strive for their own good. God is in no need of anyone.

The Spider 29:11

God will most certainly distinguish those who believe, and He will most certainly expose the hypocrites.

The Spider 29:23

Those who disbelieve in God's revelations, and in meeting Him, have despaired from My mercy. They have incurred a painful retribution.

Mary 29:35-36

It does not befit God that He begets a son, be He glorified. To have anything done, He simply says to it, "Be," and it is. He also proclaimed, "God is my Lord and your Lord; you shall worship Him alone. This is the right path."

The Spider 29:40-42

All those disbelievers were doomed as a consequence of their sins. Some of them we annihilated by violent winds, some were annihilated by the quake, some we caused the earth to swallow, and some we drowned. God is not the One who wronged them; it is they who wronged their own souls. The allegory of those who accept other masters beside God is that of the spider and her home; the flimsiest of all homes is the home of the spider, if they only knew. God knows full well that whatever they worship besides Him are really nothing. He is the Almighty, the Most Wise.

The Spider 29:44

God created the heavens and the earth, truthfully. This provides a sufficient proof for the believers.

The Spider 29:61-62

If you ask them, "Who created the heavens and the earth, and put the sun and the moon in your service," they will say, "God." Why then did they deviate? God is the One who increases the provision for whomever He chooses from among His creatures, and withholds it. God is fully aware of all things.

The Spider 29:61

As for those who strive in our cause, we will surely guide them in our paths. Most assuredly, God is with the pious.

The Romans 30:4-6

Within several years. Such is God's decision, both in the first prophecy, and the second. On that day, the believers shall rejoice in God's victory. He grants victory to whomever He wills. He is the Almighty, Most Merciful. Such is God's promise - and God never breaks His promise - but most people do not know.

The Romans 30:8-11

Why do they not reflect on themselves? God did not create the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, except for a specific purpose, and for a specific life span. However, most people, with regard to meeting their Lord, are disbelievers. Have they not roamed the earth and noted the consequences for those who preceded them? They used to be more powerful, more prosperous, and more productive on earth. Their messengers went to them with clear signs. Consequently, God was not the One who wronged them, they are the ones who wronged their own souls. The consequences for those who committed evil had to be evil. That is because they rejected God's revelations, and ridiculed them. God is the One who initiates the creation and repeats it. Ultimately, you will be returned to Him.

The Romans 30:30

Therefore, you shall devote yourself to the religion of strict monotheism. Such is the natural instinct placed into the people by God. Such creation of God will never change. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.

The Romans 30:40

God is the One who created you. He is the One who provides for you. He is the One who puts you to death. He is the One who resurrects you. Can any of your idols do any of these things? Be He glorified. He is much too exalted to have any partners.

The Romans 30:50

You shall appreciate God's continuous mercy, and how He revives the land that has been dead. He will just as certainly resurrect the dead. He is Omnipotent.

Luqmaan 31:16

O my son, know that even something as tiny as a mustard seed, deep inside a rock, be it in the heavens or the earth, God will bring it. God is Sublime, Cognizant.

Luqmaan 31:18

You shall not treat the people with arrogance, nor shall you roam the earth proudly. God does not like the arrogant showoffs.

Luqmaan 31:20

Do you not see that God has committed in your service everything in the heavens and the earth, and has showered you with His blessings - obvious and hidden? Yet, some people argue about God without knowledge, without guidance, and without the enlightening scripture.

Luqmaan 31:22-23

Those who submit completely to God, while leading a righteous life, have gotten hold of the strongest bond. For God is in full control of all things. As for those who disbelieve, do not be saddened by their disbelief. To us is their ultimate return, then we will inform them of everything they had done. God is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

Luqmaan 31:26-30

To God belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. God is the Most Rich, Most Praiseworthy. If all the trees on earth were made into pens, and the ocean supplied the ink, augmented by seven more oceans, the words of God would not run out. God is Almighty, Most Wise. The creation and resurrection of all of you is the same as that of one person. God is Hearer, Seer. Do you not realize that God merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night, and that He has committed the sun and the moon in your service, each running in its orbit for a specific life span, and that God is fully Cognizant of everything you do? This proves that God is the truth, while any idol they set up beside Him is falsehood, and that God is the Most High, Most Great.

Luqmaan 31:34

With God is the knowledge regarding the Hour (end of the world). He is the One who sends down the rain, and He knows the contents of the womb. No soul knows what will happen to it tomorrow, and no one knows in which land he or she will die. God is Omniscient, Cognizant.

Prostration 32:4

God is the One who created the heavens and the earth, and everything between them in six days, then assumed all authority. You have none beside Him as Lord, nor do you have an intercessor. Would you not take heed?

The Parties 33:2-3

Follow what is revealed to you from your Lord. God is fully Cognizant of everything you all do.

The Parties 33:24

God will surely recompense the truthful for their truthfulness, and will punish the hypocrites, if He so wills, or redeem them. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

The Parties 33:39

Those who deliver God's messages, and who reverence Him alone, shall never fear anyone but God. God is the most efficient reckoner.

The Parties 33:63-64

The people ask you about the Hour (end of the world). Say, "The knowledge thereof is only with God. For all that you know, the Hour may be close." God has condemned the disbelievers, and has prepared for them Hell.

Sheba 34:1

Praise be to God - to whom belongs everything in the heavens and the earth; all praise is also due to Him in the Hereafter. He is the Most Wise, the Cognizant.

Sheba 34:3

Those who disbelieve have said, "The Hour will never come to pass!" Say, "Absolutely - by my Lord - it will most certainly come to you. He is the Knower of the future. Not even the equivalent of an atom's weight is hidden from Him, be it in the heavens or the earth. Not even smaller than that, or larger (is hidden). All are in a profound record."

Sheba 34:22

Say, "Implore the idols you have set up beside God. They do not possess as much as a single atom in the heavens, or the earth. They possess no partnership therein, nor does He permit them to be His assistants."

Sheba 34:39

Say, "My Lord is the One who controls all provisions; He increases the provisions for whomever He chooses from among His servants, or reduces them. Anything you spend (in the cause of God), He will reward you for it; He is the Best Provider."

Initiator 35:1-2

Praise be to God, Initiator of the heavens and the earth, and appointer of the angels to be messengers with wings - two, three, and four (wings). He increases the creation as He wills. God is Omnipotent. When God showers the people with mercy, no force can stop it. And if He withholds it, no force, other than He, can send it. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

Initiator 35:5

O people, God's promise is the truth; therefore, do not be distracted by this lowly life. Do not be diverted from God by mere illusions.

Initiator 35:8-11

Note the one whose evil work is adorned in his eyes, until he thinks that it is righteous. God thus sends astray whoever wills (to go astray), and He guides whoever wills (to be guided). Therefore, do not grieve over them. God is fully aware of everything they do. God is the One who sends the winds to stir up clouds, then we drive them towards barren lands, and revive such lands after they were dead. Thus is the resurrection. Anyone seeking dignity should know that to God belongs all dignity. To Him ascends the good words, and He exalts the righteous works. As for those who scheme evil works, they incur severe retribution; the scheming of such people is destined to fail. God created you from dust, then from a tiny drop, then He causes you to reproduce through your spouses. No female becomes pregnant, nor gives birth, without His knowledge. No one survives for a long life, and no one's life is snapped short, except in accordance with a pre-existing record. This is easy for God.

Initiator 35:13

He merges the night into the day, and merges the day into the night. He has committed the sun and the moon to run for a predetermined period of time. Such is God your Lord; to Him belongs all kingship. Any idols you set up beside Him do not possess as much as a seed's shell.

Initiator 35:15

O people, you are the ones who need God, while God is in no need of anyone, the Most Praiseworthy.

Initiator 35:27-29

Do you not realize that God sends down from the sky water, whereby we produce fruits of various colors? Even the mountains have different colors; the peaks are white, or red, or some other color. And the ravens are black. Also, the people, the animals, and the livestock come in various colors. This is why the people who truly reverence God are those who are knowledgeable. God is Almighty, Forgiving. Surely, those who recite the book of God, observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), and from our provisions to them they spend - secretly and publicly - are engaged in an investment that never loses.

Initiator 35:32

We passed the scripture from generation to generation, and we allowed whomever we chose from among our servants to receive it. Subsequently, some of them wronged their souls, others upheld it only part of the time, while others were eager to work righteousness in accordance with God's will; this is the greatest triumph.

Initiator 35:38

God is the Knower of the future of the heavens and the earth. He is the Knower of all innermost thoughts.

Ya Sin 36:23

"Shall I set up beside Him gods? If the Most Gracious willed any harm for me, their intercession cannot help me one bit, nor can they rescue me.

The Arrangers 37:151-152

Indeed, they grossly blaspheme when they say - "God has begotten a son." Indeed, they are liars.

Saad 38:26

O David, we have made you a ruler on earth. Therefore, you shall judge among the people equitably, and do not follow your personal opinion, lest it diverts you from the way of God. Surely, those who stray off the way of God incur severe retribution for forgetting the Day of Reckoning.

Saad 38:65

Say, "I warn you; there is no other god beside God, the One, the Supreme.

The Throngs 39:0-4

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. This is a revelation of the scripture, from God, the Almighty, the Wise. We sent down to you this scripture, truthfully; you shall worship God, devoting your religion to Him alone. Absolutely, the religion shall be devoted to God alone. Those who set up idols beside Him say, "We idolize them only to bring us closer to God; for they are in a better position!" God will judge them regarding their disputes. God does not guide such liars, disbelievers. If God wanted to have a son, He could have chosen whomever He willed from among His creations. Be He glorified; He is God, the One, the Supreme.

The Throngs 39:6-7

He created you from one person, then created from him his mate. He sent down to you eight kinds of livestock. He creates you in your mothers' bellies, creation after creation, in trimesters of darkness. Such is God your Lord. To Him belongs all sovereignty. There is no other god beside Him. How could you deviate? If you disbelieve, God does not need anyone. But He dislikes to see His servants make the wrong decision. If you decide to be appreciative, He is pleased for you. No soul bears the sins of any other soul. Ultimately, to your Lord is your return, then He will inform you of everything you had done. He is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

The Throngs 39:60-63

On the Day of Resurrection you will see the faces of those who lied about God covered with misery. Is Hell not the right retribution for the arrogant ones? And God will save those who have maintained righteousness; He will reward them. No harm will touch them, nor will they have any grief. God is the Creator of all things, and He is in full control of all things. To Him belongs all decisions in the heavens and the earth, and those who disbelieve in God's revelations are the real losers.

The Throngs 39:67

They can never fathom the greatness of God. The whole earth is within His fist on the Day of Resurrection. In fact, the universes are folded within His right hand. Be He glorified; He is much too high above needing any partners.

Forgiver 40:2-3

This revelation of the scripture is from God, the Almighty, the Omniscient. Forgiver of sins, acceptor of repentance, strict in enforcing retribution, and possessor of all power. There is no other god beside Him. To Him is the ultimate destiny.

Forgiver 40:10

Those who disbelieve will be told, "God's abhorrence towards you is even worse than your own abhorrence towards yourselves. For you were invited to believe, but you chose to disbelieve."

Forgiver 40:20-22

God judges equitably, while the idols they implore beside Him cannot judge anything. God is the One who is the Hearer, the Seer. Did they not roam the earth and note the consequences for those before them? They used to be stronger than they, and more productive on earth. But God punished them for their sins, and nothing could protect them from God. That is because their messengers went to them with clear proofs, but they disbelieved. Consequently, God punished them. He is Mighty, strict in enforcing retribution.

Forgiver 40:35

They argue against God's revelations, without any basis. This is a trait that is most abhorred by God and by those who believe. God thus seals the hearts of every arrogant tyrant.

Forgiver 40:55-56

Therefore, be patient, for God's promise is true, and ask forgiveness for your sin, and glorify and praise your Lord night and day. Surely, those who argue against God's revelations without proof are exposing the arrogance that is hidden inside their chests, and they are not even aware of it. Therefore, seek refuge in God; He is the Hearer, the Seer.

Forgiver 40:64-65

God is the One who rendered the earth habitable for you, and the sky a formidable structure, and He designed you, and designed you well. He is the One who provides you with good provisions. Such is God your Lord; Most Exalted is God, Lord of the universe. He is the Living; there is no god except He. You shall worship Him alone, devoting your religion absolutely to Him alone. Praise be to God, Lord of the universe.

Detailed 41:30

Those who proclaim: "Our Lord is God," then lead a righteous life, the angels descend upon them: "You shall have no fear, nor shall you grieve. Rejoice in the good news that Paradise has been reserved for you.

Consultation 42:3

Inspiring you, and those before you, is God, the Almighty, Most Wise.

Consultation 42:8-10

Had God willed, He could have made them one community. But He redeems into His mercy whomever He wills. As for the transgressors, they have no master, nor a helper. Did they find other lords beside Him? God is the only Lord and Master. He is the One who resurrects the dead, and He is the Omnipotent One. If you dispute any part of this message, the judgment for doing this rests with God. Such is God my Lord. In Him I trust, and to Him I submit.

Consultation 42:13

He decreed for you the same religion decreed for Noah, and what we inspired to you, and what we decreed for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: "You shall uphold this one religion, and do not divide it." The idol worshipers will greatly resent what you invite them to do. God redeems to Himself whomever He wills; He guides to Himself only those who totally submit.

Consultation 42:15-17

This is what you shall preach, and steadfastly maintain what you are commanded to do, and do not follow their wishes. And proclaim: "I believe in all the scriptures sent down by God. I was commanded to judge among you equitably. God is our Lord and your Lord. We have our deeds and you have your deeds. There is no argument between us and you. God will gather us all together; to Him is the ultimate destiny." Those who argue about God, after receiving His message, their argument is nullified at their Lord. They have incurred condemnation, and have deserved a severe retribution. God is the One who sent down the scripture, to deliver the truth and the law. For all that you know, the Hour (Day of Judgment) may be very close.

Consultation 42:19

God is fully aware of all His creatures; He provides for whomever He wills. He is the Powerful, the Almighty.

Consultation 42:23-24

This is the good news from God to His servants who believe and lead a righteous life. Say, "I do not ask you for any wage. I do ask each of you to take care of your own relatives." Anyone who does a righteous work, we multiply his reward for it. God is Forgiver, Appreciative. Are they saying, "He has fabricated lies about God!"? If God willed, He could have sealed your mind, but God erases the falsehood and affirms the truth with His words. He is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

Consultation 42:27

If God increased the provision for His servants, they would transgress on earth. This is why He sends it precisely measured to whomever He wills. He is fully Cognizant and Seer of His servants.

Consultation 42:36

Whatever you are given is no more than temporary material of this life. What God possesses is far better and everlasting, for those who believe and trust in their Lord.

Consultation 42:46-47

There will be no allies to help them against God. Whomever God sends astray can never be guided. You shall respond to your Lord before a day comes which is decreed inevitable by God. There will be no refuge for you on that day, nor an advocate.

Consultation 42:49

To God belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. He creates whatever He wills, granting daughters to whomever He wills, and granting sons to whomever He wills.

Consultation 42:51

No human being can communicate with God except through inspiration, or from behind a barrier, or by sending a messenger through whom He reveals what He wills. He is the Most High, Most Wise.

Ornaments 43:64

"God is my Lord and your Lord, you shall worship Him alone. This is the right path."

Smoke 44:8

There is no other god beside Him. He controls life and death; your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors.

Kneeling 45:2

The revelation of this scripture is from God, the Almighty, Most Wise.

Kneeling 45:6

These are God's revelations that we recite to you truthfully. In which Hadith other than God and His revelations do they believe?

Kneeling 45:12

God is the One who committed the sea in your service, so that the ships can roam it in accordance with His laws. You thus seek His provisions, that you may be appreciative.

Kneeling 45:14

Tell those who believed to forgive those who do not expect the days of God. He will fully pay everyone for whatever they have earned.

Kneeling 45:22-23

God created the heavens and the earth for a specific purpose, in order to pay each soul for whatever it earned, without the least injustice. Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

Kneeling 45:26-27

Say, "God has granted you life, then He puts you to death, then He will summon you to the Day of Resurrection, which is inevitable. But most people do not know." To God belongs all sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. The day the Hour (Judgment) comes to pass, that is when the falsifiers lose.

Kneeling 45:36

To God belongs all praise; Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth, Lord of the universe.

The Dunes 46:2

The revelation of this scripture is from God, the Almighty, Most Wise.

The Dunes 46:33

Do they not realize that God, who created the heavens and the earth without the least effort, is able to revive the dead? Yes indeed; He is Omnipotent.

Muhammad 47:0-4

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Those who disbelieve and repel from the path of God, He nullifies their works. This is because those who disbelieve are following falsehood, while those who believe are following the truth from their Lord. God thus cites for the people their examples. If you encounter (in war) those who disbelieve, you may strike the necks. If you take them as captives you may set them free or ransom them, until the war ends. Had God willed, He could have granted you victory, without war. But He thus tests you by one another. As for those who get killed in the cause of God, He will never put their sacrifice to waste.

Muhammad 47:7

O you who believe, if you support God, He will support you, and strengthen your foothold.

Muhammad 47:10-12

Did they not roam the earth and see the consequences for those before them? God destroyed their works; all disbelievers will suffer the same fate. This is because God is the Lord of those who believe, while the disbelievers have no lord. God admits those who believe and lead a righteous life into gardens with flowing streams. As for those who disbelieve, they live and eat like the animals eat, then end up in the hellfire.

Muhammad 47:19

You shall know that: "There is no other god beside God," and ask forgiveness of your sins and the sins of all believing men and women. God is fully aware of your decisions and your ultimate destiny.

Muhammad 47:32-35

Those who disbelieve and repel from the path of God, and oppose the messenger after the guidance has been manifested for them, will never hurt God in the least. Instead, He nullifies their works. O you who believe, you shall obey God, and obey the messenger. Otherwise, all your works will be in vain. Those who disbelieve and repel from the path of God, then die as disbelievers, God will never forgive them. Therefore, you shall not waver and surrender in pursuit of peace, for you are guaranteed victory, and God is with you. He will never waste your efforts.

Muhammad 47:38

You are invited to spend in the cause of God, but some of you turn stingy. The stingy are stingy towards their own souls. God is Rich, while you are poor. If you turn away, He will substitute other people in your place, and they will not be like you.

Victory 48:4-7

He is the One who places contentment into the hearts of believers to augment more faith, in addition to their faith. To God belongs all forces of the heavens and the earth. God is Omniscient, Most Wise. He will certainly admit the believing men and women into gardens with flowing streams, wherein they abide forever. He will remit their sins. This is, in the sight of God, a great triumph. And He will requite the hypocrite men and women and the idol worshiping men and women, for they have harbored evil thoughts about God. Their evil will backfire against them. For God is angry with them, condemns them, and has prepared for them Gehenna. What a miserable destiny! To God belongs all the forces in the heavens and the earth. God is Almighty, Most Wise.

Victory 48:28

He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it prevail over all other religions. God suffices as a witness.

The Walls 49:13-14

O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of God is the most righteous. God is Omniscient, Cognizant. The Arabs said, "We are Mu'mens (believers)." Say, "You have not believed; what you should say is, `We are Muslims (submitters),' until belief is established in your hearts." If you obey God and His messenger, He will not put any of your works to waste. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

The Walls 49:18

God knows all the secrets in the heavens and the earth; God is Seer of everything you do.

Drivers of the Wind 51:58

God is the Provider, the Possessor of all power, the Supreme.

Mount Sinai 52:43

Do they have another god besides God? God be glorified, far above having partners.

The Stars 53:25-26

To God belongs both the Hereafter, and this world. Not even the angels in heaven possess authority to intercede. The only ones permitted by God are those who act in accordance with His will and His approval.

The Stars 53:31

To God belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. He will requite those who commit evil for their works, and will reward the righteous for their righteousness.

Iron 57:1

Glorifying God is everything in the heavens and the earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

Iron 57:4-5

He is the One who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then assumed all authority. He knows everything that enters into the earth, and everything that comes out of it, and everything that comes down from the sky, and everything that climbs into it. He is with you wherever you may be. God is Seer of everything you do. To Him belongs the kingship of the heavens and the earth. All matters are controlled by God.

Iron 57:9-10

He is the One who sends down to His servant clear revelations, in order to lead you out of the darkness into the light. God is Compassionate towards you, Most Merciful. Why do you not spend in the cause of God, when God possesses all wealth in the heavens and the earth? Distinguished from the rest are those among you who spend before the victory and strive. They attain a greater rank than those who spend after the victory and strive. For each, God promises salvation. God is Cognizant of everything you do.

The Debate 58:14-18

Have you noted those who befriended people with whom God is angry? They neither belong with you, nor with them. They deliberately swear lies! God has prepared for them a severe retribution. Miserable indeed is what they used to do. They used their oaths as a means of repelling from the path of God. Consequently, they have incurred a shameful retribution. Neither their money, nor their children will help them against God. They have incurred the hellfire, wherein they abide forever. The Day will come when God resurrects them all. They will swear to Him then, just as they swear to you now, thinking that they really are right! Indeed, they are the real liars.

The Debate 58:21-22

God has decreed: "I and My messengers will most assuredly win." God is Powerful, Almighty. You will not find people who believe in God and the Last Day befriending those who oppose God and His messenger, even if they were their parents, or their children, or their siblings, or their tribe. For these, He decrees faith into their hearts, and supports them with inspiration from Him, and admits them into gardens with flowing streams wherein they abide forever. God is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. These are the party of God. Most assuredly, God's party are the winners.

Exodus 59:1-6

Glorifying God is everything in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Almighty, Most Wise. He is the One who evicted those who disbelieved among the people of the scripture from their homes in a mass exodus. You never thought that they would leave, and they thought that their preparations would protect them from God. But then God came to them whence they never expected, and threw terror into their hearts. Thus, they abandoned their homes on their own volition, in addition to pressure from the believers. You should learn from this, O you who possess vision. If God did not force them to leave, He would have requited them in this life (even worse than forcing them to leave). In the Hereafter He will commit them to the retribution of Hell. This is because they opposed God and His messenger. For those who oppose God and His messenger, God is most strict in enforcing retribution. Whether you chop a tree or leave it standing on its trunk is in accordance with God's will. He will surely humiliate the wicked. Whatever God restored for His messenger was not the result of your war efforts, whether you fought on horses or on foot. God is the One who sends His messengers against whomever He wills. God is Omnipotent.

Exodus 59:22-24

He is the One God; there is no other god besides Him. Knower of all secrets and declarations. He is the Most Gracious, Most Merciful. He is the One God; there is no other god besides Him. The King, the Most Sacred, the Peace, the Most Faithful, the Supreme, the Almighty, the Most Powerful, the Most Dignified. God be glorified; far above having partners. He is the One God; the Creator, the Initiator, the Designer. To Him belong the most beautiful names. Glorifying Him is everything in the heavens and the earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

The Test 60:6-9

A good example has been set by them for those who seek God and the Last Day. As for those who turn away, God is in no need (of them), Most Praiseworthy. God may change the animosity between you and them into love. God is Omnipotent. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful. God does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. God loves the equitable. God enjoins you only from befriending those who fight you because of religion, evict you from your homes, and band together with others to banish you. You shall not befriend them. Those who befriend them are the transgressors.

The Column 61:4-5

God loves those who fight in His cause united in one column, like the bricks in one wall. Recall that Moses said to his people, "O my people, why do you hurt me, even though you know that I am God's messenger to you?" When they deviated, God diverted their hearts. For God does not guide the wicked people.

The Column 61:7-9

Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies about God, and he is being invited to Submission? God does not guide the evil people. They wish to put out God's light with their mouths. But God insists upon perfecting His light, in spite of the disbelievers. He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, so that it will dominate all other religions, even if the polytheists hate it.

Friday 62:1

Glorifying God is everything in the heavens and everything on earth; the King, the Most Sacred, the Almighty, the Most Wise.

Friday 62:4

Such is God's grace that He bestows upon whomever He wills. God is Possessor of Infinite Grace.

Friday 62:11

When some of them come across a business deal, or some entertainment, they rush to it and leave you standing! Say, "What God possesses is far better than the entertainment or the business. God is the best Provider."

The Hypocrites 63:6-7

It is the same for them, whether you pray for their forgiveness, or not pray for their forgiveness; God will not forgive them. For God does not guide the wicked people. They are the ones who say, "Do not give any money to those who followed the messenger of God, perhaps they abandon him!" However, God possesses the treasures of the heavens and the earth, but the hypocrites do not comprehend.

The Hypocrites 62:11

God never delays the appointed time of death for any soul. God is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

Mutual Blaming 64:1-2

Glorifying God is everything in the heavens and everything on earth. To Him belongs all kingship, and to Him belongs all praise, and He is Omnipotent. He is the One who created you, then among you there is the disbeliever, and the believer. God is fully Seer of everything you do.

Mutual Blaming 64:4

He knows everything in the heavens and the earth, and He knows everything you conceal and everything you declare. God is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

Mutual Blaming 64:7-9

Those who disbelieved claim that they will not be resurrected! Yes indeed, by my Lord, you will be resurrected, and you will be held accountable for everything you have done. This is easy for God to do. Therefore, you shall believe in God and His messenger, and the light that we have revealed herein. God is fully Cognizant of everything you do. The day will come when He summons you to the Day of Summoning. That is the Day of Mutual Blaming. Anyone who believes in God and leads a righteous life, He will remit his sins, and will admit him into gardens with flowing streams. They abide therein forever. This is the greatest triumph.

Mutual Blaming 64:11-17

Nothing happens to you except in accordance with God's will. Anyone who believes in God, He will guide his heart. God is fully aware of all things. You shall obey God and you shall obey the messenger. If you turn away, then the sole mission of our messenger is to deliver the message. God: there is no other god besides Him. In God the believers shall trust. O you who believe, your spouses and your children can be your enemies; beware. If you pardon, forget, and forgive, then God is Forgiver, Most Merciful. Your money and children are a test, and God possesses a great recompense. Therefore, you shall reverence God as much as you can, and listen, and obey, and give (to charity) for your own good. Anyone who is protected from his own stinginess, these are the successful ones. If you lend God a loan of righteousness, He will multiply the reward for you manifold, and forgive you. God is Appreciative, Clement.

Divorce 65:12

God created seven universes and the same number of earths. The commands flow among them. This is to let you know that God is Omnipotent, and that God is fully aware of all things.

Prohibition 66:2

God has decreed for you the laws dealing with your oaths. God is your Lord, and He is the Omniscient, Most Wise.

Prohibition 66:8

O you who believe, you shall repent to God a firm repentance. Your Lord will then remit your sins and admit you into gardens with flowing streams. On that day, God will not disappoint the prophet and those who believed with him. Their light will radiate in front of them and to their right. They will say, "Our Lord, perfect our light for us, and forgive us; You are Omnipotent."

Kingship 67:28

Say, "Whether God decides to annihilate me and those with me, or to shower us with His mercy, who is there to protect the disbelievers from a painful retribution?"

The Heights Noah 71:4

"He will then forgive you your sins and respite you for a predetermined period. Most assuredly, God's appointment can never be delayed, once it is due, if you only knew."

Noah 71:15-20

Do you not realize that God created seven universes in layers? He designed the moon therein to be a light, and placed the sun to be a lamp. And God germinated you from the earth like plants. Then He returns you into it, and He will surely bring you out. God made the earth habitable for you. That you may build roads therein.

Jinns 72:18

The places of worship belong to God; do not call on anyone else beside God.

Jinns 72:22-23

Say, "No one can protect me from God, nor can I find any other refuge besides Him. "I deliver God's proclamations and messages." Those who disobey God and His messenger incur the fire of Hell, wherein they abide forever.

Cloaked 73:9

Lord of the east and the west; there is no other god besides Him. You should choose Him as your advocate.

Cloaked 73:20

Your Lord knows that you meditate during two-thirds of the night, or half of it, or one-third of it, and so do some of those who believed with you. God has designed the night and the day, and He knows that you cannot always do this. He has pardoned you. Instead, you shall read what you can of the Quran. He knows that some of you may be ill, others may be traveling in pursuit of God's provisions, and others may be striving in the cause of God. You shall read what you can of it, and observe the contact prayers (Salat), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and lend God a loan of righteousness. Whatever good you send ahead on behalf of your souls, you will find it at God far better and generously rewarded. And implore God for forgiveness. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

The Hidden Secred 74:31

We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number to disturb the disbelievers, to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), to strengthen the faith of the faithful, to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, "What did God mean by this allegory?" God thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.

The Shattering 82:19

That is the day when no soul can help another soul, and all decisions, on that day, will belong to God.

As for those who turn away and disbelieve. God will commit them to the great retribution. To us is their ultimate destiny. Then we will call them to account.

The Fig 95:4-8

We created man in the best design. Then turned him into the lowliest of the lowly. Except those who believe and lead a righteous life; they receive a reward that is well deserved. Why do you still reject the faith? Is God not the Most Wise, of all the wise ones?

Proof 98:8

Their reward at their Lord is the gardens of Eden with flowing streams, wherein they abide forever. God is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. Such is the reward for those who reverence their Lord.
