BLAME

You who believe! If any of you renounce your religion, Allah will bring forward a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble to the believers, fierce to the disbelievers, who strive in the Way of Allah and do not fear the blame of any censurer. That is the unbounded favour of Allah which He gives to whoever He wills. Allah is Boundless, All-Knowing. (5:54)

She said, 'You see! It's him you blamed me for. I tried seducing him but he refused. If he (Yusuf) does not do what I order him, he will be put in prison and brought low.' (12:32)

He said, 'No blame at all will fall on you. Today you have forgiveness from Allah. He is the Most Merciful of the merciful.' (12:92)

When the affair is decided Satan will say, 'Allah made you a promise, a promise of truth, and I made you a promise but broke my promise. I had no authority over you, except that I called you and you responded to me. Do not, therefore, blame me but blame yourselves. I cannot come to your aid nor you to mine. I reject the way you associated me with Allah before.' The wrongdoers will have a painful punishment. (14:22)

Do not keep your hand chained to your neck but do not extend it either to its full extent so that you sit there blamed and destitute. (17:29)

That is part of the wisdom your Lord has revealed to you. Do not set up another god together with Allah and so be thrown into Hell, blamed and driven out. (17:39)

(The believers are) those who guard their chastity-except from their wives or those they own as slaves, in which case they are not blameworthy. (23:5-6)

Then the fish devoured him and he (Yunus) was to blame. (37:142)

So We seized him and his armies and hurled them into the sea, and he (Pharaoh) was to blame. (51:40)

So turn away from them, for you are not to blame. (51:54)

(The believers are) those who guard their private parts except from their wives and any slaves they own, in which case they incur no blame. (70:29-30)


BLAST

The Great Blast seized hold of those who did wrong and morning found them lying flattened in their homes. (11:67)

When Our command came, We rescued Shu'ayb and those who believed along with him by a mercy from Us. The Great Blast seized hold of those who did wrong and morning found them lying flattened in their homes. (11:94)

So the Great Blast seized hold of them at the break of day. (15:73)

They carved out houses from the mountains, feeling safe, but the Great Blast seized hold of them in the morning. (15:82-83)

The Great Blast seized hold of them inexorably and We turned them into dirty scum. Away with the people of the wrongdoers! (23:41)

We seized each one of them for their wrong actions. Against some We sent a sudden squall of stones; some of them were seized by the Great Blast; some We caused the earth to swallow up; and some We drowned. Allah did not wrong them; rather they wronged themselves. (29:40)

It was but one Great Blast and they were extinct. (36:29)

What are they waiting for but one Great Blast to seize them while they are quibbling? (36:49)

It will be but one Great Blast, and they will all be summoned to Our presence. (36:53)

There will be but one Great Blast and then their eyes will open. (37:19)

These people too are only awaiting a single Blast and it will not be repeated. (38:15)

The Day they hear the Blast in truth, that is the Day of Emergence. (50:42)

But they spurned their Lord's command, so the Blast seized them as they looked. (51:44)

Leave them then until they meet their Day when they will be struck down by the Blast. (52:45)

We sent a single Blast against them and they were just like a thatcher's reeds. (54:31)

Thamud were destroyed by the Deafening Blast. (69:5)

So when the Trumpet is blown with a single blast, (69:13)

On the Day the first blast shudders, and the second blast follows it, hearts that Day will be pounding and eyes will be cast down. (79:6-9)

There will be but one Great Blast, and at once they will be on the surface, wide awake! (79:13-14)

When the Deafening Blast comes, (80:33)


BLAZE

People who consume the property of orphans wrongfully consume nothing in their bellies except fire. They will roast in a Searing Blaze. (4:10)

Some of them believe in him, and some bar access to him. Hell will suffice as a Searing Blaze! (4:55)

But those who disbelieve and deny Our Signs, are the Companions of the Blazing Fire. (5:10)

Whoever Allah guides is truly guided. But as for those He leads astray, you will not find any protectors for them apart from Him. We will gather them on the Day of Rising, flat on their faces, blind, dumb and deaf. Their shelter will be Hell. Whenever the Blaze dies down, We will increase it for them. (17:97)

It is written of him that if anyone takes him as a friend, he will mislead him and guide him to the punishment of the Searing Blaze. (22:4)

But as for those who strive against My Signs and try to thwart them, they will be the Companions of the Blazing Fire. (22:51)

But instead, they deny the Hour; and We have prepared a Searing Blaze for those who deny the Hour. (25:11)

Allah has cursed the disbelievers and prepared a Searing Blaze for them. (33:64)

And We gave Sulayman power over the wind-a month's journey in the morning and a month in the afternoon. And We made a fount of molten brass flow out for him. And some of the jinn worked in front of him by his Lord's permission. And if a single one of them deviates at all from Our command, We let him taste the punishment of the Searing Blaze. (34:12)

Satan is your enemy so treat him as an enemy. He summons his party so they will be among the people of the Searing Blaze. (35:6)

They said, 'Build a pyre for him and fling him into the blaze!' (37:97)

We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps and made some of them stones for the Satans for whom We have prepared the punishment of the Blaze. (67:5)

They will say, 'If only we had really listened and used our intellect, we would not have been Companions of the Blaze.' (67:10)

Then they will acknowledge their wrong actions. Away with the Companions of the Blaze! (67:11)

Then roast him in the Blazing Fire. (69:31)

But no! It is a Raging Blaze. (70:15)

We have made ready for the disbelievers shackles and chains and a Searing Blaze. (76:4)

When the Fire is set ablaze. (81:12)

But (he) will be roasted in a Searing Blaze. (84:12)


BLESSING

Guide us on the Straight Path, the Path of those You have blessed, (1:5-6)

Tribe of Israel! Remember the blessing I conferred on you. Honour My contract and I will honour your contract. Have dread of Me alone. (2:40)

Tribe of Israel! Remember the blessing I conferred on you and that I preferred you over all other beings. (2:47)

Tribe of Israel! Remember the blessing I conferred on you, and that I preferred you over all other beings. (2:122)

Wherever you come from, turn your face to the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram). Wherever you are, turn your faces towards it so that people will have no argument against you-except for those among them who do wrong and then you should not fear them but rather fear Me-and so that I can complete My blessing to you so that hopefully you will be guided. (2:150)

Ask the tribe of Israel how many Clear Signs We gave to them. If anyone alters Allah's blessing after it has come to him, Allah is fierce in retribution. (2:211)

When you divorce women and they are near the end of their waiting period, then either retain them with correctness and courtesy or release them with correctness and courtesy. Do not retain them by force, thus overstepping the limits. Anyone who does that has wronged himself. Do not make a mockery of Allah's Signs. Remember Allah's blessing to you and the Book and Wisdom He has sent down to you to admonish you. Have fear of Allah and know that Allah has knowledge of all things. (2:231)

Hold fast to the rope of Allah all together, and do not separate. Remember Allah's blessing to you when you were enemies and He joined your hearts together so that you became brothers by His blessing. You were on the very brink of a pit of the Fire and He rescued you from it. In this way Allah makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be guided. (3:103)

(Those killed in the way of Allah are) rejoicing in blessings and favour from Allah and that Allah does not let the wage of the believers go to waste. (3:171)

So they returned with blessings and bounty from Allah and no evil touched them. They pursued the pleasure of Allah. Allah's favour is indeed immense. (3:174)

Whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger will be with those whom Allah has blessed: the Prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. What excellent company such people are! (4:69)

Among you there are people who hang back and if you encounter a setback then they say, 'Allah has blessed me in that I was not there with them.' (4:72)

Forbidden for you are carrion, blood and pork, and what has been consecrated to other than Allah, and animals which have been strangled, and animals which have been killed by a blow, and animals which have fallen to their death, and animals which have been gored, and animals which wild beasts have eaten-except those you are able to slaughter properly-and animals which have been sacrificed on altars, and deciding things by means of divining arrows-that is deviance. Today those who disbelieve have despaired of overcoming your religion. So do not be afraid of them but be afraid of Me. Today I have perfected your religion for you and completed My blessing upon you and I am pleased with Islam as a religion for you. But if anyone is forced by hunger, not intending any wrongdoing, Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (5:3)

You who believe! When you get up to perform prayer, wash your faces and your hands and your arms to the elbows, and wipe over your heads, and (wash) your feet to the ankles. If you are in a state of major impurity, then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a journey, or have come from the lavatory, or have touched women, and cannot find any water, then take for yourselves clean earth, and wipe your faces and your hands therewith. Allah does not want to make things difficult for you, but He does want to purify you and to perfect His blessing upon you so that hopefully you will be thankful. (5:6)

Remember Allah's blessing to you and the covenant He made with you when you said, 'We hear and we obey.' Have fear of Allah. Allah knows what the heart contains. (5:7)

You who believe! Remember Allah's blessing to you when certain people were on the verge of raising their hands against you and He held their hands back from you. Have fear of Allah. The believers should put their trust in Allah. (5:11)

Remember when Musa said to his people, 'My people! Remember Allah's blessing to you when He appointed Prophets among you and appointed kings for you, and gave you what He had not given to anyone else in all the worlds!' (5:20)

Two men among those who were afraid, but whom Allah had blessed, said, 'Enter the gate against them! Once you have entered it, you will be victorious. Put your trust in Allah if you are believers.' (5:23)

Remember when Allah said, ''Isa, son of Maryam, remember My blessing to you and to your mother when I reinforced you with the Purest Spirit so that you could speak to people in the cradle and when you were fully grown; and when I taught you the Book and Wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you created a bird-shape out of clay by My permission, and then breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission; and healed the blind and the leper by My permission; and when you brought forth the dead by My permission; and when I held back the tribe of Israel from you, when you brought them the Clear Signs and those of them who disbelieved said, "This is nothing but downright magic". (5:110)

(Hud said,) 'Or are you astonished that a reminder should come to you from your Lord by way of a man among you in order to warn you? Remember when He appointed you successors to the people of Nuh, and increased you greatly in stature. Remember Allah's blessings, so that hopefully you will be successful.' (7:69)

(Salih said,) 'Remember when He appointed you successors to 'Ad and settled you in the land. You built palaces on its plains and carved out houses from the mountains. Remember Allah's blessings and do not go about the earth, corrupting it.' (7:74)

And We bequeathed to the people who had been oppressed the easternmost part of the land We had blessed, and its westernmost part as well. The most excellent Word of your Lord was fulfilled for the tribe of Israel on account of their steadfastness. And We utterly destroyed what Pharaoh and his people made and the buildings they constructed. (7:137)

That is because Allah would never change a blessing He has conferred on a people until they had changed what was in themselves. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (8:53)

But if We let him taste blessings after hardship has afflicted him, he says, 'My troubles have gone away,' and he is overjoyed, boastful. (11:10)

It was said, 'Nuh, descend with peace from Us and with blessings on you and on the nations which will issue from those who are with you. But there are nations to whom we will give enjoyment and then a painful punishment from Us will afflict them.' (11:48)

They said, 'Are you astonished at Allah's command? May Allah's mercy and His blessings be upon you, People of the House! He is Praiseworthy, All-Glorious.' (11:73)

(Ya'qub said,) 'Accordingly your Lord will pick you out and teach you the true meaning of events and perfectly fulfil His blessing on you as well as on the family of Ya'qub as He fulfilled it perfectly before upon your forebears, Ibrahim and Ishaq. Most certainly your Lord is Knowing, Wise.' (12:6)

Remember when Musa said to his people, 'Remember Allah's blessing to you when He rescued you from the people of Pharaoh. They were inflicting an evil punishment on you, slaughtering your sons and letting your women live. In that there was a terrible trial from your Lord.' (14:6)

Do you not see those who have exchanged Allah's blessing for disbelief, and moved their people to the abode of ruin. (14:28)

He has given you everything you have asked Him for. If you tried to number Allah's blessings, you could never count them. Man is indeed wrongdoing, ungrateful. (14:34)

If you tried to number Allah's blessings, you could never count them. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (16:18)

Any blessing you have is from Allah. Then when harm touches you, it is to Him you cry for help. (16:53)

Allah has favoured some of you over others in provision, but those who have been favoured do not give their provision to their slaves so they become the same in respect of it. So why do they renounce the blessings of Allah? (16:71)

Allah has given you wives from among yourselves, and given you children and grandchildren from your wives, and provided good things for you. So why do they believe in falsehood and reject the blessings of Allah? (16:72)

Allah has made shaded places for you in what He has created and He has made shelters for you in the mountains and He has made shirts for you to protect you from the heat and shirts to protect you from each other's violence. In that way He perfects His blessing on you so that hopefully you will become Muslims. (16:81)

They acknowledge Allah's blessing and then deny it. Most of them are disbelievers. (16:83)

Allah makes an example of a city which was safe and at peace, its provision coming to it plentifully from every side. Then it showed ingratitude for Allah's blessings so Allah made it wear the robes of hunger and fear for what it did. (16:112)

So eat from what Allah has provided for you, lawful and good, and be thankful for the blessing of Allah if it is Him you worship. (16:114)

He was thankful for His blessings. Allah chose him and guided him to a straight path. (16:121)

Glory be to Him Who took His servant on a journey by night from the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram) to the Further Mosque (Masjid al-Aqsa), whose surroundings We have blessed, in order to show him some of Our Signs. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing. (17:1)

When We bless man, he turns away and draws aside. When evil touches him, he despairs. (17:83)

Those are some of the Prophets Allah has blessed, from the descendants of Adam and from those We carried with Nuh, and from the descendants of Ibrahim and Isra'il and from those We guided and chose. When the Signs of the All-Merciful were recited to them they fell on their faces, weeping, in prostration. (19:58)

We delivered both him and Lut to the land which We had blessed for all beings. (21:71)

And to Sulayman We gave the fiercely blowing wind, speeding at his command towards the land which We had blessed. And We had full knowledge of everything. (21:81)

He (Sulayman) smiled, laughing at its words, and said, 'My Lord, keep me thankful for the blessing You have bestowed on me and on my parents, and keep me acting rightly, pleasing You, and admit me, by Your mercy, among Your servants who are righteous.' (27:19)

He said, 'My Lord, because of Your blessing to me, I will never be a supporter of evildoers.' (28:17)

Do they not see that We have established a safe haven while people all round them are violently dispossessed? So why do they believe in falsehood and reject the blessing of Allah? (29:67)

Do you not see that Allah has subjected to you everything in the heavens and earth and has showered His blessings upon you, both outwardly and inwardly? Yet there are people who argue about Allah without knowledge or guidance or any illuminating Book. (31:20)

Do you not see that ships sail on the sea by Allah's blessing so that He can show you something of His Signs? There are certainly Signs in that for everyone who is steadfast and thankful. (31:31)

You who believe! Remember Allah's blessing to you when forces came against you and We sent a wind against them and other forces you could not see. Allah sees what you do. (33:9)

When you said to him whom Allah has blessed and you yourself have greatly favoured, 'Keep your wife to yourself and have fear of Allah,' while concealing something in yourself which Allah wished to bring to light, you were fearing people when Allah has more right to your fear. Then when Zayd divorced her We married her to you so that there should be no restriction for the believers regarding the wives of their adopted sons when they have divorced them. Allah's command is always carried out. (33:37)

We placed between them and the cities We had blessed other clearly conspicuous cities, making them measured stages on the way: 'Travel between them in safety by night and day.' (34:18)

Mankind! Remember Allah's blessing to you. Is there any creator other than Allah providing for you from heaven and earth? There is no god but Him. So how have you been perverted? (35:3)

So he will look down and see him in the midst of the Blazing Fire and say, 'By Allah, you almost ruined me! If it were not for the blessing of my Lord, I would have been among those arraigned.' (37:55-57)

We showered blessings upon him (Ibrahim) and upon Ishaq. Among their descendants are good-doers and also people who clearly wrong themselves. (37:113)

When harm touches man he calls upon his Lord, repenting to Him. Then when He grants him a blessing from Him, he forgets what he was calling for before and ascribes rivals to Allah, so as to misguide others from His Way. Say: 'Enjoy your disbelief for a little while. You are among the Companions of the Fire.' (39:8)

When harm touches man he calls on Us. Then when We grant him a blessing from Us he says, 'I have only been given this because of my knowledge.' In fact it is a trial but most of them do not know it. (39:49)

He placed firmly embedded mountains on it, towering over it, and blessed it and measured out its nourishment in it, laid out for those who seek it-all in four days. (41:10)

When We grant blessing to a man, he turns away and draws aside but when any evil touches him, he is full of endless prayers! (41:51)

It is He Who created all the species and gave you ships and livestock for you to ride, so that you might sit firmly on their backs and remember your Lord's blessing while you are seated on them, saying, 'Glory be to Him Who has subjected this to us. We could never have done it by ourselves.' (43:12-13)

He is only a servant on whom We bestowed Our blessing and whom We made an example for the tribe of Israel. (43:59)

We have instructed man to be good to his parents. His mother bore him with difficulty and with difficulty gave birth to him; and his bearing and weaning take thirty months. Then when he achieves his full strength and reaches forty, he says, 'My Lord, keep me thankful for the blessing You bestowed on me and on my parents, and keep me acting rightly, pleasing You. And make my descendants righteous. I have repented to You and I am truly one of the Muslims.' (46:15)

Truly We have granted you a clear victory, so that Allah may forgive you your earlier errors and any later ones and complete His blessing upon you, and guide you on a Straight Path. (48:1-2)

It is a great favour from Allah and a blessing. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (49:8)

Remind them then! For, by the blessing of your Lord, you are neither a soothsayer nor a madman. (52:29)

Which one of your Lord's blessings do you then dispute? (53:55)

It was a blessing direct from Our presence. That is how We recompense those who give thanks. (54:35)

So which of your Lord's blessings do you both then deny? (55: 13, 16, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67,69, 71, 73, 75, 77)

By the blessing of your Lord, you are not mad. (68:2)

Had a blessing from his Lord not overtaken him, he would have been thrown up on the naked shore, for he was at fault. (68:49)

And as for the blessing of your Lord, speak out! (93:11)


BLISS

The truly good will be in perfect Bliss. (82:13)

The truly good will be in perfect Bliss. (83:22)


BOASTFULNESS

Worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him. Be good to your parents and relatives and to orphans and the very poor, and to neighbours who are related to you and neighbours who are not related to you, and to companions and travellers and your slaves. Allah does not love anyone vain or boastful. (4:36)

But if We let him taste blessings after hardship has afflicted him, he says, 'My troubles have gone away,' and he is overjoyed, boastful. (11:10)

Do not avert your face from people out of haughtiness and do not strut about arrogantly on the earth. Allah does not love anyone who is vain or boastful. (31:18)

That is so that you will not be grieved about the things that pass you by or exult about the things that come to you. Allah does not love any vain or boastful man. (57:23)


BOAT

It is He Who conveys you on both land and sea so that when some of you are on a boat, running before a fair wind, rejoicing at it, and then a violent squall comes upon them and the waves come at them from every side and they realise there is no way of escape, they call on Allah, making their religion sincerely His: 'If You rescue us from this, we will truly be among the thankful.' (10:22)

They continued until they boarded a boat and he scuppered it. Then Musa said, 'Did you scupper it so that its owners would be drowned? This is truly a dreadful thing that you have done!' (18:71)

(He said to Musa,) 'As for the boat, it belonged to some poor people who worked on the sea. I wanted to damage it because a king was coming behind them, commandeering every boat.' (18:79)


BOILING WATER

Here are two rival groups who disputed concerning their Lord. Those who disbelieve will have garments of fire cut out for them, and boiling water poured over their heads, which will melt the contents of their bellies as well as their skin. (22:19-20)

This! So let them taste it-boiling water and scalding pus and other such torments. (38:57-58)

Those who deny the Book and that with which We sent Our Messengers will certainly come to know when they have shackles and chains around their necks and are dragged along the ground into the boiling water and then are thrown into the Fire! (40:70-72)

The Tree of az-Zaqqum is the food of the wicked, seething in the belly like molten brass, as boiling water bubbles and seethes. (44:43-45)

(The custodians of Hell will be told,) 'Then pour the punishment of boiling water on his head.' (44:48)

An image of the Garden which is promised to those who guard against evil: in it there are rivers of water which will never spoil and rivers of milk whose taste will never change and rivers of wine, delightful to all who drink it, and rivers of honey of undiluted purity; in it they will have fruit of every kind and forgiveness from their Lord. Is that like those who will be in the Fire timelessly, for ever, with boiling water to drink which lacerates their bowels? (47:15)

Hell lies in wait-a homecoming for the profligate remaining in it for countless aeons, not tasting any coolness there or any drink, except for boiling water and scalding pus-a fitting recompense. (78:21-26)


BONE

Or the one who passed by a town which had fallen into ruin? He asked, 'How can Allah restore this to life when it has died?' Allah caused him to die a hundred years then brought him back to life. Then He asked, 'How long have you been here?' He replied, 'I have been here a day or part of a day.' He said, 'Not so! You have been here a hundred years. Look at your food and drink-it has not gone bad-and look at your donkey so We can make you a Sign for all mankind. Look at the bones-how We raise them up and clothe them in flesh.' When it had become clear to him, he said, 'Now I know that Allah has power over all things.' (2:259)

We made forbidden for the Jews every animal with an undivided hoof, and in respect of cattle and sheep, We made their fat forbidden for them, except what is attached to their backs or guts or mixed up with bone. That is how We repaid them for their insolence. And We certainly speak the truth. (6:146)

They say, 'What! When we are bones and crumbled dust, will we then be raised up as a new creation!' (17:49)

That is their repayment for rejecting Our Signs and saying, 'What, when we are bones and crumbled dust, will we then be raised up as a new creation?' (17:98)

And (Zakariyya) said, 'My Lord, my bones have lost their strength and my head is crowned with white, but in calling on You, My Lord, I have never been disappointed.' (19:4)

Then (We) formed the drop into a clot and formed the clot into a lump and formed the lump into bones and clothed the bones in flesh; and then brought him into being as another creature. Blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators! (23:14)

Does he promise you that when you have died and become dust and bones you will be brought forth again? (23:35)

They say, 'When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we then be raised again?' (23:82)

He makes likenesses of Us and forgets his own creation, saying, 'Who will give life to bones when they are decayed?' (36:78)

They say, 'This is just downright magic. When we are dead and turned to dust and bones will we then be raised up again alive?' (37:15-16)

One of them will say, 'I used to have a friend who would say to me, "Are you one of those who say that it is true: that when we have died and are turned to dust and bones, we will face a Reckoning?"' (37:51-53)

And (they were) saying, 'When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we then be raised again?' (56:47)

Does man imagine We will not reassemble his bones? (75:3)

They will say, 'Are we to be restored to how we were? When we have become perished, worm-eaten bones?' (79:10-11)

He was created from a spurting fluid, emerging from between the back-bone and the breast-bone. (86:6-7)


BOOK OF ACTIONS

We have fastened the destiny of every man about his neck and on the Day of Rising We will bring out a Book for him which he will find spread open in front of him. (17:13)

And the earth will shine with the Pure Light of its Lord; the Book will be put in place; the Prophets and witnesses will be brought; it will be decided between them with the truth; and they will not be wronged. (39:69)

In fact each one of them wants to be given an unfurled scroll. (74:52)

When the Pages are opened up, (81:10)

No indeed! The book of the dissolute is in Sijjin. And what will convey to you what Sijjin is? A clearly written Book. (83:7-9)

As for him who is given his Book in his right hand, he will be given an easy reckoning and return to his family joyfully. But as for him who is given his Book behind his back, he will cry out for destruction but will be roasted in a Searing Blaze. (84:7-12)


BOOKS

(Those who guard against evil are) those who believe in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down before you, and are certain about the hereafter. (2:4)

Believe in what I have sent down, confirming what is with you. Do not be the first to reject it and do not sell My Signs for a paltry price. Have fear of Me alone. (2:41)

Some of them are illiterate, knowing nothing of the Book but wishful thinking. They only speculate. (2:78)

Woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say 'This is from Allah' to sell it for a paltry price. Woe to them for what their hands have written! Woe to them for what they earn! (2:79)

Say, 'We believe in Allah and what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to Ibrahim and Isma'il and Ishaq and Ya'qub and the Tribes, and what Musa and 'Isa were given, and what all the Prophets were given by their Lord. We do not differentiate between any of them. We are Muslims submitted to Him.' (2:136)

The Messenger believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and so do the believers. Each one believes in Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers. We do not differentiate between any of His Messengers. They say, 'We hear and we obey. Forgive us, our Lord! You are our journey's end.' (2:285)

Say, 'We believe in Allah and what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to Ibrahim, Isma'il and Ishaq and Ya'qub and the Tribes, and what Musa and 'Isa and all the Prophets were given by their Lord. We do not differentiate between any of them. We are Muslims submitted to Him.' (3:84)

You who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger and in the Book He sent down to His Messenger, and the Books He sent down before. Anyone who rejects Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Last Day has gone very far astray. (4:136)

Those to whom We gave the Book rejoice at what has been sent down to you but some of the parties refuse to acknowledge part of it. Say: 'I have only been ordered to worship Allah and not to associate anything with Him. I summon to Him and to Him I will return.' (13:36)

Only argue with the People of the Book in the kindest way-except in the case of those of them who do wrong-saying, 'We believe in what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to you. Our God and your God are one and we submit to Him.' (29:46)

Accordingly We have sent down the Book to you, and those to whom We gave the Book believe in it, and some of these people believe in it as well. Only the disbelievers deny Our Signs. (29:47)

If they deny you, those before them also denied the truth. Their Messengers came to them with Clear Signs, and psalms and the Illuminating Book. (35:25)

We sent Nuh and Ibrahim and placed Prophethood and the Book among their descendants. Some of them are guided but many of them are deviators. (57:26)


BOOTY

You who believe! When you go out to fight in the Way of Allah verify things carefully. Do not say, 'You are not a believer', to someone who greets you as a Muslim, simply out of desire for the goods of this world. With Allah there is booty in abundance. That is the way you were before but Allah has been kind to you. So verify things carefully. Allah is aware of what you do. (4:94)

They will ask you about booty. Say: 'Booty belongs to Allah and the Messenger. So have fear of Allah and put things right between you. Obey Allah and His Messenger if you are believers.' (8:1)

Know that when you take any booty a fifth of it belongs to Allah, and to the Messenger, and to close relatives, orphans, the very poor and travellers, if you believe in Allah and in what We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Discrimination, the day the two groups met-Allah has power over all things. (8:41)

So make full use of any booty you have taken which is lawful and good; and have fear of Allah. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (8:69)

O Prophet! We have made lawful for you: your wives to whom you have given dowries and any slavegirls you own from the booty Allah has allotted you and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who have migrated with you and any believing woman who gives herself to the Prophet if the Prophet desires to marry her: exclusively for you as opposed to the rest of the believers-We know very well what We have prescribed for them regarding their wives and any slavegirls they possess-in order that there be no restriction on you. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (33:50)

When you go out to get the booty, those who remained behind will say, 'Allow us to follow you,' desiring to alter Allah's words. Say: 'You may not follow us. That is what Allah said before.' They will say, 'It is only because you envy us.' No indeed! How little they have understood! (48:15)

And (He rewarded believers) with much booty which they will take. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (48:19)

Allah has promised you much booty which you will take, and has hastened this for you and held people's hands back from you, so that it might be a Sign to the believers, and so that He might guide you to a straight path. (48:20)

And other booty you do not yet have the power to take-Allah has already encompassed it. Allah has power over all things. (48:21)

Whatever booty from them Allah has given to His Messenger-and you spurred on neither horse nor camel in its acquisition, but Allah gives power to His Messengers over anyone He wills, Allah has power over all things. (59:6)

Whatever booty Allah gives to His Messenger from city dwellers belongs to Allah and to the Messenger and to near relatives and orphans and the very poor and travellers, so that it does not become something which merely revolves between the rich among you. Whatever the Messenger gives you you should accept and whatever he forbids you you should forgo. Have fear of Allah-Allah is severe in retribution. (59:7)

(Booty is also) for the poor of the emigrants who were driven from their homes and wealth desiring the favour and the pleasure of Allah and supporting Allah and His Messenger. Such people are the truly sincere. (59:8)


BOW

Perform prayer and give the alms and bow with those who bow. (2:43)

And when We made the House (Kaaba) a place of return, a sanctuary for mankind: They took the place where Ibrahim stood (to pray) as a place of prayer. We contracted with Ibrahim and Isma'il: 'Purify My House for those who circle it, and those who stay there, and those who bow and who prostrate.' (2:125)

(The angels said,) 'Maryam, obey your Lord and prostrate and bow with those who bow.' (3:43)

Your friend is only Allah and His Messenger and those who believe: those who perform prayer and give the alms, and bow. (5:55)

And We located the position of the House for Ibrahim: 'Do not associate anything with Me and purify My House for those who circle it, and those who stand and bow and prostrate.' (22:26)

You who believe! Bow and prostrate and worship your Lord, and do good, so that hopefully you will be successful. (22:77)

Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are fierce to the disbelievers, merciful to one another. You see them bowing and prostrating, seeking Allah's good favour and His pleasure. Their mark is on their faces, the traces of prostration. That is their likeness in the Torah. And their likeness in the Gospel is that of a seed which puts up a shoot and makes it strong so that it thickens and grows up straight upon its stalk, filling the sowers with delight-so that by them He may infuriate the disbelievers. Allah has promised those of them who believe and do right actions forgiveness and an immense reward. (48:29)

When they are told to bow, they do not bow. (77:48)


BRACELET

They will have Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing under them. They will be adorned in them with bracelets made of gold and wear green garments made of the finest silk and rich brocade, reclining there on couches under canopies. What an excellent reward! What a wonderful repose! (18:31)

But Allah will admit those who believe and do right actions into Gardens with rivers flowing under them where they will be adorned with gold bracelets and pearls, and where their clothing will be of silk. (22:23)

They will enter Gardens of Eden where they will be adorned with gold bracelets and pearls, and where their clothing will be of silk. (35:33)

(Pharaoh said,) 'Why have gold bracelets not been put upon his arms and why is there not a train of angels accompanying him?' (43:53)

They will wear green garments of fine silk and rich brocade. They will be adorned with silver bracelets. And their Lord will give them a pure draught to drink. (76:21)


BRAIN

Rather We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts right through its brain and it vanishes clean away! Woe without end for you for what you portray! (21:18)


BRASS

Say: 'It is the truth from your Lord; so let whoever wishes believe and whoever wishes disbelieve.' We have prepared for the wrongdoers a Fire whose billowing walls of smoke will hem them in. If they call for help, they will be helped with water like seething molten brass, frying their faces. What a noxious drink! What an evil repose! (18:29)

(Dhu'l-Qarnayn said,) 'Bring me ingots of iron!' Then, when he had made it level between the two high mountain-sides, he said, 'Blow!' and when he had made it a red hot fire, he said, 'Bring me molten brass to pour over it.' (18:96)

And We gave Sulayman power over the wind-a month's journey in the morning and a month in the afternoon. And We made a fount of molten brass flow out for him. And some of the jinn worked in front of him by his Lord's permission. And if a single one of them deviates at all from Our command, We let him taste the punishment of the Searing Blaze. (34:12)

The Tree of az-Zaqqum is the food of the wicked, seething in the belly like molten brass. (44:43-45)

On the Day the sky is like molten brass. (70:8)


BREAD

Two servants entered prison along with Yusuf. One said, 'I dreamt that I was pressing grapes.' The other said, 'I dreamt I carried bread upon my head and birds were eating it. Tell us the true meaning of these dreams. We see that you're one of the righteous.' (12:36)


BREAKING AN OATH

Be true to Allah's contract when you have agreed to it, and do not break your oaths once they are confirmed and you have made Allah your guarantee. Allah knows what you do. (16:91)

Do not be like a woman who spoils the thread she has spun by unravelling it after it is strong, by making your oaths a means of deceiving one another, merely because one community is bigger than another. Allah is only testing you by this. He will make clear to you on the Day of Rising the things about which you differed. (16:92)


BREAST-BONE

(Man) was created from a spurting fluid, emerging from between the back-bone and the breast-bone. (86:6-7)


BRINGING OUT

Remember when you killed someone and violently accused each other of it, and Allah brought out what you were hiding. (2:72)

Then Satan whispered to them, disclosing to them their private parts that had been concealed from them. He said, 'Your Lord has only forbidden you this tree lest you become angels or among those who live for ever.' (7:20)

The hypocrites are afraid that a sura may be sent down about them, informing them of what is in their hearts. Say: 'Go on mocking! Allah will expose everything you are afraid of.' (9:64)

(The hoopoe said,) 'I found both her and her people prostrating to the sun instead of Allah. Satan has made their actions seem good to them and debarred them from the Way so they are not guided and do not prostrate to Allah, Who brings out what is hidden in the heavens and the earth, and knows what you conceal and what you divulge.' (27:24-25)

The evil deeds they did will appear before them and the things they mocked at will engulf them. (45:33)

He darkened its night and brought forth its morning light. (79:29)


BROCADE

They will have Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing under them. They will be adorned in them with bracelets made of gold and wear green garments made of the finest silk and rich brocade, reclining there on couches under canopies. What an excellent reward! What a wonderful repose! (18:31)

(In the Gardens, believers will be) wearing fine silk and rich brocade, face to face with one another. (44:53)

They will be reclining on couches lined with rich brocade, the fruits of the Gardens hanging close to hand. (55:54)

They will wear green garments of fine silk and rich brocade. They will be adorned with silver bracelets. And their Lord will give them a pure draught to drink. (76:21)


BROTHER - BROTHERHOOD

You who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the case of people killed: free man for free man, slave for slave, female for female. But if someone is absolved by his brother, blood-money should be claimed with correctness and paid with good will. That is an easement and a mercy from your Lord. Anyone who goes beyond the limits after this will receive a painful punishment. (2:178)

... They will ask you about the property of orphans. Say, 'Managing it in their best interests is best.' If you mix your property with theirs, they are your brothers. Allah knows a squanderer from a good manager. If Allah had wanted, He could have been hard on you. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (2:220)

Hold fast to the rope of Allah all together, and do not separate. Remember Allah's blessing to you when you were enemies and He joined your hearts together so that you became brothers by His blessing. You were on the very brink of a pit of the Fire and He rescued you from it. In this way Allah makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be guided. (3:103)

You who believe! Do not be like those who disbelieve and say of their brothers, when they are going on journeys or military expeditions, 'If they had only been with us, they would not have died or been killed,' so that Allah can make that anguish for them in their hearts. It is Allah Who gives life and causes to die. Allah sees what you do. (3:156)

They are those who said of their brothers, when they themselves had stayed behind, 'If they had only obeyed us, they would not have been killed.' Say, 'Then ward off death from yourselves if you are telling the truth.' (3:168)

Allah instructs you regarding your children: A male receives the same as the share of two females. If there are more than two daughters they receive two-thirds of what you leave. If she is one on her own she receives a half. Each of your parents receives a sixth of what you leave if you have children. If you are childless and your heirs are your parents your mother receives a third. If you have brothers or sisters your mother receives a sixth, after any bequest you make or any debts. With regard to your fathers and your sons, you do not know which of them is going to benefit you more. These are obligatory shares from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (4:11)

You receive half of what your wives leave if they are childless. If they have children you receive a quarter of what they leave after any bequest they make or any debts. They receive a quarter of what you leave if you are childless. If you have children they receive an eighth of what you leave after any bequest you make or any debts. If a man or woman has no direct heirs, but has a brother or sister, each of them receives a sixth. If there are more than that they share in a third after any bequest you make or any debts, making sure that no one's rights are prejudiced. This is an instruction from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Forbearing. (4:12)

Forbidden for you are: your mothers and your daughters and your sisters, your maternal aunts and your paternal aunts, your brothers' daughters and your sisters' daughters, your foster mothers who have suckled you, your foster sisters by suckling, your wives' mothers, your stepdaughters who are under your protection: the daughters of your wives whom you have had sexual relations with (though if you have not had sexual relations with them there is nothing blameworthy for you in it then), the wives of your sons whom you have fathered, and marrying two sisters at the same time-except for what may have already taken place. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (4:23)

They request from you a ruling. Say: 'Allah gives you a ruling about people who die without direct heirs: If a man dies childless but has a sister she receives half of what he leaves, and he is her heir if she dies childless. If there are two sisters they receive two-thirds of what he leaves. If there are brothers and sisters the males receive the share of two females. Allah makes things clear to you so you will not go astray. Allah has knowledge of all things.' (4:176)

He (Musa) said, 'My Lord, I have no control over anyone but myself and my brother, so make a clear distinction between us and this deviant people.' (5:25)

So his lower self persuaded him to kill his brother, and he killed him and became one of the lost. (5:30)

Then Allah sent a crow which scratched at the earth to show him how to conceal his brother's corpse. He said, 'Woe is me! Can I not even be like this crow and conceal my brother's corpse?' And he became one of those who suffer bitter remorse. (5:31)

And some of their forebears, descendants and brothers; We chose them and guided them to a straight path. (6:87)

And to 'Ad We sent their brother Hud, who said, 'My people, worship Allah! You have no other god than Him. So will you not guard against evil?' (7:65)

And to Thamud We sent their brother Salih, who said, 'My people, worship Allah! You have no other god than Him. A Clear Sign has come to you from your Lord. This is the She-Camel of Allah as a Sign for you. Leave her alone to eat on Allah's earth and do not harm her in any way or a painful punishment will afflict you.' (7:73)

And to Madyan We sent their brother Shu'ayb who said, 'My people, worship Allah! You have no other god than Him. A Clear Sign has come to you from your Lord. Give full measure and full weight. Do not diminish people's goods. Do not cause corruption in the land after it has been put right. That is better for you if you are believers.' (7:85)

They said, 'Detain him and his brother and send out marshals to the cities.' (7:111)

We set aside thirty nights for Musa and then completed them with ten, so the appointed time of his Lord was forty nights in all. Musa said to his brother Harun, 'Take my place among my people. Keep order and do not follow the way of the corrupters.' (7:142)

When Musa returned to his people in anger and great sorrow, he said, 'What an evil thing you did in my absence after I left! Did you want to hasten your Lord's command?' He threw down the Tablets and seized hold of his brother's head, dragging him towards him. Harun said, 'Son of my mother, The people oppressed me and almost killed me. Do not give my enemies cause to gloat over me. Do not include me with the wrongdoing people.' (7:150)

He (Musa) said, 'My Lord, forgive me and my brother and admit us into Your mercy. You are the Most Merciful of the merciful.' (7:151)

But as for their brothers, the visitors lead them further into error. And they do not stop at that! (7:202)

But if they repent and perform prayer and give the alms, they are your brothers in the religion. We make the Signs clear for people who have knowledge. (9:11)

You who believe, do not befriend your fathers and brothers if they prefer disbelief to faith. Those among you who do befriend them are wrongdoers. (9:23)

Say: 'If your fathers or your sons or your brothers or your wives or your tribe, or any wealth you have acquired, or any business you fear may slump, or any house which pleases you, are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger and striving in His Way, then wait until Allah brings about His command. Allah does not guide people who are deviators.' (9:24)

We revealed to Musa and his brother: 'Settle your people in houses in Egypt and make your houses places of worship and perform prayer and give good news to the believers.' (10:87)

And to 'Ad We sent their brother Hud. He said, 'My people! Worship Allah. You have no god apart from Him. You are merely fabricators.' (11:50)

To Thamud We sent their brother Salih. He said, 'My people, worship Allah! You have no god apart from Him. He brought you into being from the earth and made you its inhabitants. So ask His forgiveness and then repent to Him. My Lord is Close and Quick to Respond.' (11:61)

And to Madyan their brother Shu'ayb. He said, 'My people, worship Allah! You have no god apart from Him. Do not give short measure and short weight. I see you prospering and I fear for you the punishment of an all-encompassing Day.' (11:84)

He (Yusuf's father) said, 'My son, don't tell your brothers your dream lest they devise some scheme to injure you, Satan is a clear-cut enemy to man.' (12:5)

In Yusuf and his brothers there are Signs for every one of those who wants to ask. (12:7)

When they (the brothers of Yusuf) declared, 'Why! Yusuf and his brother are dearer to our father than we are although we constitute a powerful group. Our father is clearly making a mistake.' (12:8)

The brothers of Yusuf came into his presence and he knew them but they did not know him. (12:58)

Then, having supplied their needs, he (Yusuf) said to them, 'Bring me your brother, your father's youngest son. Do you not see that I dispense full measure and am the most hospitable of hosts?' (12:59)

Then when they got back to their father's house, they said, 'Father! Our measure has been denied. Please send our brother with us so we may obtain our measure. We will take care of him.' (12:63)

He said, 'How will my trusting him to your care be different from entrusting his brother before? The Best of Guardians, however, is Allah. He is the Most Merciful of the merciful.' (12:64)

Then when they opened up their saddlebags and found their merchandise returned to them, they said, 'Our father! What more could we ask! Here is our merchandise returned to us. We can provide our families with food, and guard our brother and get an extra load. That is an easy measure to obtain.' (12:65)

Then when they entered into Yusuf's presence, he drew his brother close to him and said, 'I am your brother. Do not be distressed concerning all the things they used to do.' (12:69)

Then when he had supplied them with their needs, he put the goblet in his brother's bag. A herald called out, 'Caravan! You are thieves!' (12:70)

He started with their bags before his brother's and then produced it from his brother's bag. In that way We devised a cunning scheme for Yusuf. He could not have held his brother according to the statutes of the King-only because Allah had willed it so. We raise the rank of anyone We will. Over everyone with knowledge is a Knower. (12:76)

They said, 'If he steals now, his brother stole before.' But Yusuf kept it to himself and still did not disclose it to them, saying, 'The plight that you are in is worse than that. Allah knows best the matter you describe.' (12:77)

(Yusuf's father said,) 'My sons! Seek news of Yusuf and his brother. Do not despair of solace from Allah. No one despairs of solace from Allah except for people who are disbelievers.' (12:87)

He (Yusuf) said, 'Are you aware of what you did to Yusuf and his brother in ignorance?' (12:89)

They said, 'Are you Yusuf?' He said, 'I am indeed Yusuf, and this here is my brother. Allah has acted graciously to us. As for those who fear Allah and are steadfast, Allah does not allow to go to waste the wage of any people who do good.' (12:90)

He raised his parents up onto the throne. The others fell prostrate in front of him. He said, 'My father, truly this is now the interpretation of the dream I had. My Lord has made it all come true; and He was kind to me by letting me out of prison and brought you from the desert when Satan had caused dissent between me and my brothers. My Lord is kind to anyone He wills. He is indeed All-Knowing and All-Wise. (12:100)

We will strip away any rancour in their hearts-brothers, resting on couches face-to-face. (15:47)

Squanderers are brothers to the Satans, and Satan was ungrateful to his Lord. (17:27)

We endowed him with Our mercy, making his brother Harun a Prophet. (19:53)

(Musa said,) 'Assign me a helper from my family, my brother Harun.' (20:29-30)

(Allah said to Musa,) 'Go, you and your brother, with My Signs and do not slacken in remembering Me.' (20:42)

Then We sent Musa and his brother Harun with Our Signs and clear authority. (23:45)

Say to the believing women that they should lower their eyes and guard their chastity and not display their adornments-except for what normally shows-and draw their head-coverings across their breasts. They should only display their adornments to their husbands or their fathers or their husbands' fathers, or their sons or their husbands' sons or their brothers or their brothers' sons or their sisters' sons or their women or those they own as slaves or their male attendants who have no sexual desire or children who still have no awareness of women's private parts. Nor should they stamp their feet so that their hidden ornaments are known. Turn to Allah every one of you, believers, so that hopefully you will have success. (24:31)

There is no objection to the blind, no objection to the lame, no objection to the sick nor to yourselves if you eat in your own houses or your fathers' houses or your mothers' houses or your brothers' houses or your sisters' houses or the houses of your paternal uncles or paternal aunts or the houses of your maternal uncles or maternal aunts or places to which you own the keys or those of your friends. There is nothing wrong in your eating together or eating separately. And when you enter houses greet one another with a greeting from Allah, blessed and good. In this way Allah makes the Signs clear to you so that hopefully you will use your intellect. (24:61)

We gave Musa the Book and appointed his brother Harun with him as a helper. (25:35)

They said, 'Detain him and his brother and send out marshals to the cities.' (26:36)

When their brother Nuh said to them, 'Will you not guard against evil?' (26:106)

When their brother Hud said to them, 'Will you not guard against evil?' (26:124)

When their brother Salih said to them, 'Will you not guard against evil?' (26:142)

When their brother Lut said to them, 'Will you not guard against evil?' (26:161)

To Thamud We sent their brother Salih telling them to worship Allah, and straightaway they divided in two, arguing with one another. (27:45)

(Musa said,) 'and my brother Harun is more eloquent than me so send him with me to support me and back me up. I am afraid they will call me a liar.' (28:34)

He said, 'We will reinforce you with your brother and by Our Signs will give you both authority, so that they will not be able to lay a hand on you. You and those who follow you will be the victors.' (28:35)

And to Madyan We sent their brother Shu'ayb, he said, 'My people, worship Allah and look to the Last Day and do not act unjustly on earth, corrupting it.' (29:36)

Call them after their fathers. That is closer to justice in Allah's sight. And if you do not know who their fathers were then they are your brothers in the religion and people under your patronage. You are not to blame for any honest mistake you make but only for what your hearts premeditate. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (33:5)

Allah knows the obstructers among you and those who say to their brothers, 'Come to us,' and who only come to fight a very little. (33:18)

They incur no blame in respect of their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their brothers' or sisters' sons, or their women or any slaves they own. Have fear of Allah. Allah is witness of all things. (33:55)

(One of the two litigants said to Dawud,) 'This brother of mine has ninety-nine ewes and I have only one. He said, "Let me have charge of it," and got the better of me with his words.' (38:23)

Remember the brother of 'Ad when he warned his people by the sand-dunes-and warners passed away before and after him-'Worship no one but Allah. I fear for you the punishment of a terrible Day.' (46:21)

The believers are brothers, so make peace between your brothers and have fear of Allah so that hopefully you will gain mercy. (49:10)

You who believe! Avoid most suspicion. Indeed some suspicion is a crime. And do not spy and do not backbite one another. Would any of you like to eat his brother's dead flesh? No, you would hate it. And have fear of Allah. Allah is Ever-Returning, Most Merciful. (49:12)

And 'Ad and Pharaoh and the brothers of Lut (also denied the truth). (50:13)

You will not find people who believe in Allah and the Last Day having love for anyone who opposes Allah and His Messenger, though they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers or their clan. Allah has inscribed faith upon such people's hearts and will reinforce them with a Spirit from Him and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever. Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. Such people are the party of Allah. Truly it is the party of Allah who are successful. (58:22)

Those who have come after them say, 'Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and do not put any rancour in our hearts towards those who believe. Our Lord, You are All-Gentle, Most Merciful.' (59:10)

Did you not see the hypocrites saying to their brothers, those among the People of the Book who disbelieve, 'If you are driven out we will leave with you, we will never obey anyone to your detriment. And if you are fought against we will help you'? Allah bears witness that they are truly liars. (59:11)

... An evildoer will wish he could ransom himself from the punishment of that Day, by means of his sons, or his wife or his brother or his family who sheltered him or everyone else on earth, if that only meant that he could save himself. (70:11-14)

(On) the Day a man will flee from his brother. (80:34)


BUILDING

And We bequeathed to the people who had been oppressed the easternmost part of the land We had blessed, and its westernmost part as well. The most excellent Word of your Lord was fulfilled for the tribe of Israel on account of their steadfastness. And We utterly destroyed what Pharaoh and his people made and the buildings they constructed. (7:137)

Who is better: someone who founds his building on fear of Allah and His good pleasure, or someone who founds his building on the brink of a crumbling precipice so that it collapses with him into the Fire of Hell? Allah does not love wrongdoers. (9:109)

The buildings they have built will not cease to be a bone of contention in their hearts, until their hearts are cut to shreds. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (9:110)

Those before them also plotted, and Allah came at their building from the foundations and the roof caved in on top of them. The punishment came at them from where they did not expect. (16:26)

Accordingly We made them chance upon them unexpectedly so they might know that Allah's promise is true and that there is no doubt about the Hour. When they were arguing among themselves about the matter, they said, 'Wall up their cave, their Lord knows best about them.' But those who got the better of the argument concerning them said, 'We will build a place of worship over them.' (18:21)

They said, 'Build a pyre for him and fling him into the blaze!' (37:97)

And (We subjected) the Satans, every builder and diver (to Sulayman). (38:37)

But those who have fear of their Lord will have high-ceilinged Halls, and more such Halls built one above the other, and rivers flowing under them. That is Allah's promise. Allah does not break His promise. (39:20)

Pharaoh said, 'Haman, build me a tower so that perhaps I may gain means of access,' (40:36)

As for heaven-We built it with great power and gave it its vast expanse. (51:47)

Allah loves those who fight in His Way in ranks like well-built walls. (61:4)

We built seven firm layers above you. (78:12)

Are you stronger in structure or is heaven? He built it. (79:27)


BURDEN

So on the Day of Rising they will carry the full weight of their own burdens and some of the burdens of those they misguided without knowledge. What an evil load they bear! (16:25)

Whoever is guided is only guided to his own good. Whoever is misguided is only misguided to his detriment. No burden-bearer can bear another's burden. We never punish until We have sent a Messenger. (17:15)

Those who turn away from it will bear a heavy burden on the Day of Rising. (20:100)

No burden-bearer can bear another's burden. If someone weighed down calls for help to bear his load, none of it will be borne for him, even by his next of kin. You can only warn those who fear their Lord in the Unseen and perform prayer. Whoever is purified, is purified for himself alone. Allah is your final destination. (35:18)

If you are ungrateful, Allah is rich beyond need of any of you and He is not pleased with ingratitude in His servants. But if you are grateful, He is pleased with you for that. No burden-bearer can bear another's burden. Then you will return to your Lord and He will inform you of what you did. He knows what the heart contains. (39:7)

(Has he not been informed) that no burden-bearer can bear another's burden? (53:38)
