DABBATUL ARDH (SEE BEAST OF THE EARTH)


DATE PALM

Would any of you like to have a garden of dates and grapes, with rivers flowing underneath and containing all kinds of fruits, then to be stricken with old age and have children who are weak, and then for a fierce whirlwind containing fire to come and strike it so that it goes up in flames? In this way Allah makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will reflect. (2:266)

It is He Who sends down water from the sky from which We bring forth growth of every kind, and from that We bring forth the green shoots and from them We bring forth close-packed seeds, and from the spathes of the date palm date clusters hanging down, and gardens of grapes and olives and pomegranates, both similar and dissimilar. Look at their fruits as they bear fruit and ripen. There are Signs in that for people who believe. (6:99)

It is He Who produces gardens, both cultivated and wild, and palm-trees and crops of diverse kinds, and olives and pomegranates, both similar and dissimilar. Eat of their fruits when they bear fruit and pay their due on the day of their harvest, and do not be profligate. He does not love the profligate. (6:141)

In the earth there are diverse regions side by side and gardens of grapes and cultivated fields, and palm-trees sharing one root and others with individual roots, all watered with the same water. And We make some things better to eat than others. There are Signs in that for people who use their intellect. (13:4)

And by it He makes crops grow for you and olives and dates and grapes and fruit of every kind. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who reflect. (16:11)

And from the fruit of the date-palm and the grape-vine you derive both intoxicants and wholesome provision. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who use their intellect. (16:67)

They say, 'We will not believe you until you make a spring gush out from the earth for us; or have a garden of dates and grapes which you make rivers come pouring through.' (17:90-91)

Make an example for them of two men. To one of them We gave two gardens of grape-vines and surrounded them with date-palms, putting between them some cultivated land. (18:32)

The pains of labour drove her to the trunk of a date-palm. She (Maryam) said, 'Oh if only I had died before this time and was something discarded and forgotten!' (19:23)

(A voice called out to Maryam,) 'Shake the trunk of the palm towards you and fresh, ripe dates will drop down onto you.' (19:25)

Pharaoh said, 'Do you believe in him before I have authorised you? He is your chief, the one who taught you magic. I will cut off your hands and feet alternately and have you crucified on palm trunks. Then you will know for certain which of us has the harsher and longer lasting punishment.' (20:71)

By means of it We produce gardens of dates and grapes for you, in which there are many fruits for you and from which you eat. (23:19)

Are you going to be left secure amid what is here, amid gardens and clear springs, and cultivated fields and palms with supple spathes? (26:146-148)

We place in it gardens of dates and grapes, and cause springs to gush out in it. (36:34)

And We have decreed set phases for the moon, until it ends up looking like an old palm spathe. (36:39)

And We sent down blessed water from the sky and made gardens grow by it and grain for harvesting and soaring date-palms with layered spathes, as provision for Our servants; by it We brought a dead land to life. That is how the Emergence will take place. (50:9-11)

In it are fruits and date-palms with covered spathes. (55:11)

In them are fruits and date-palms and pomegranates. (55:68)

Whatever palm-trees you cut down, or left standing upright on their roots, it was done by Allah's permission in order to disgrace the deviators. (59: 5)

Allah subjected them to it for seven whole nights and eight whole days without a break. You could see the people flattened in their homes just like the hollow stumps of uprooted palms. (69:7)

And (We make) olives and dates grow. (80:29)

In it are fruits and date-palms with covered spathes. (55:11)


DAUGHTER

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)

Yet they make the jinn co-partners with Allah when He created them! And they attribute sons and daughters to Him without any knowledge. Glory be to Him! He is far above what they describe! (6:100)

His people came running to him excitedly-they were long used to committing evil acts. He (Lut) said, 'My people, here are my daughters. They are purer for you. So have fear of Allah and do not shame me with my guests. Is there not one rightly-guided man among you?' (11:78)

They said, 'You know we have no claim on your daughters. You know very well what it is we want.' (11:79)

He (Lut) said, 'Here are my daughters if you are determined to do something.' (15:71)

They allot daughters to Allah-glory be to Him!-while they have what they want! (16:57)

He said (to Musa), 'I would like to marry you to one of these two daughters of mine on condition that you work for me for eight full years. If you complete ten, that is up to you. I do not want to be hard on you. You will find me, Allah willing, to be one of the righteous.' (28:27)

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)

O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and the women of the believers to draw their outer garments closely round themselves. This makes it more likely that they will be recognised and not be harmed. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (33:59)

Has He chosen daughters over sons? (37:153)

Has He then taken daughters from what He has created and chosen sons for you? (43:16)

Or does He have daughters whereas they have sons? (52:39)

And Maryam, the daughter of 'Imran, who guarded her chastity-We breathed Our Spirit into her and she confirmed the Words of her Lord and His Book and was one of the obedient. (66:12)


DAVID (SEE DAWUD (AS))


DAWN

On the night of the fast it is lawful for you to have sexual relations with your wives. They are clothing for you and you for them. Allah knows that you have been betraying yourselves and He has turned towards you and excused you. Now you may have sexual intercourse with them and seek what Allah has written for you. Eat and drink until you can clearly discern the white thread from the black thread of the dawn, then fulfil the fast until the night appears. But do not have sexual intercourse with them while you are in retreat in the mosques. These are Allah's limits, so do not go near them. In this way does Allah make His Signs clear to people so that hopefully they will guard against evil. (2:187)

(His servants are) the steadfast, the truthful, the obedient, the givers, and those who seek forgiveness before dawn. (3:17)

He (Zakariyya) said, 'My Lord, appoint a Sign for me.' He said, 'Your Sign is that you will not speak to people for three days, except by gesture. Remember your Lord much and glorify Him in the evening and after dawn.' (3:41)

It is He Who splits the sky at dawn, and appoints the night as a time of stillness and the sun and moon as a means of reckoning. That is what the Almighty, the All-Knowing has ordained. (6:96)

Perform prayer from the time the sun declines until the darkening of the night, and also the recitation at dawn. The dawn recitation is certainly witnessed. (17:78)

You who believe! Those you own as slaves and those of you who have not yet reached puberty should ask your permission to enter at three times: before the Dawn Prayer, when you have undressed at noon, and after the Prayer of Night-three times of nakedness for you. There is nothing wrong for you or them at other times in moving around among yourselves from one to another. In this way Allah makes the Signs clear to you. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (24:58)

And they (the people who guard against evil) would seek forgiveness before the dawn. (51:18)

We unleashed a sudden squall of stones against all of them, except the family of Lut, who We rescued before dawn. (54:34)

And (I swear by) the dawn when it grows bright. (74:34)

And (I swear) by the dawn when it exhales. (81:18)

By the dawn. (89:1)

It (the Night of Power) is Peace-until the coming of the dawn. (97:5)

By the charging horses panting hard, striking sparks from their flashing hooves, raiding at full gallop in the early dawn. (100:1-3)


DAWUD (AS) (DAVID)

When Talut marched out with the army, he said, 'Allah will test you with a river. Anyone who drinks from it is not with me. But anyone who does not taste it is with me-except for him who merely scoops up a little in his hand.' But they drank from it-except for a few of them. Then when he and those who believed with him had crossed it, they said, 'We do not have the strength to face Goliath and his troops today.' But those who were sure that they were going to meet Allah said, 'How many a small force has triumphed over a much greater one by Allah's permission! Allah is with the steadfast.' (2:249)

When they came out against Goliath and his troops, they said, 'Our Lord, pour down steadfastness upon us, and make our feet firm, and help us against this disbelieving people.' (2:250)

And with Allah's permission they routed them. Dawud killed Goliath and Allah gave him kingship and wisdom and taught him whatever He willed. If it were not for Allah's driving some people back by means of others, the earth would have been corrupted. But Allah shows favour to all the worlds. (2:251)

We have revealed to you as We revealed to Nuh and the Prophets who came after him. And We revealed to Ibrahim and Isma'il and Ishaq and Ya'qub and the Tribes, and 'Isa and Ayyub and Yunus and Harun and Sulayman. And We gave Dawud the Zabur. (4:163)

Those among the tribe of Israel who disbelieved were cursed on the tongue of Dawud and that of 'Isa, son of Maryam. That is because they rebelled and overstepped the limits. (5:78)

We gave him Ishaq and Ya'qub, each of whom We guided. And before him We had guided Nuh. And among his descendants were Dawud and Sulayman, and Ayyub, Yusuf, Musa and Harun. That is how We recompense the good-doers. (6:84)

My Lord knows best everyone in the heavens and earth. We favoured some of the Prophets over others. And We gave Dawud the Zabur. (17:55)

And Dawud and Sulayman when they gave judgement about the field, when the people's sheep strayed into it at night. We were Witness to their judgement. (21:78)

We gave Sulayman understanding of it. We gave each of them judgement and knowledge. We subjected the mountains to Dawud, glorifying, and the birds as well. This is something We are well able to do. (21:79)

We wrote down in the Zabur, after the Reminder came: 'It is My servants who are righteous who will inherit the earth.' (21:105)

We gave knowledge to Dawud and Sulayman who said, 'Praise be to Allah Who has favoured us over many of His servants who are believers.' (27:15)

Sulayman was Dawud's heir. He said, 'Mankind! We have been taught the speech of birds and we have been given everything. This is indeed clear favour.' (27:16)

We gave Dawud great favour from Us: 'O mountains and birds! Echo with him in his praise!' And We made iron malleable for him. (34:10)

They made for him (Sulayman) anything he wished: high arches and statues, huge dishes like cisterns, great built-in cooking vats. 'Work, family of Dawud, in thankfulness!' But very few of My servants are thankful. (34:13)

Be steadfast in the face of what they say and remember Our servant Dawud, who possessed true strength. He truly turned to his Lord. (38:17)

Has the story of the litigants reached you? How they climbed up to the Upper Room and came in on Dawud who was alarmed by them. They said, 'Do not be afraid. We are two litigants, one of whom has acted unjustly towards the other, so judge between us with truth and do not be unjust and guide us to the Right Path. 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.' He said, 'He has wronged you by asking for your ewe to add to his ewes. Truly many partners are unjust to one another-except those who believe and do right actions, and how few they are!' Dawud realised that We had put him to the test. He begged forgiveness from his Lord and fell down prone, prostrating, and repented. So We forgave him for that and he has nearness to Us and a good Homecoming. (We said), 'Dawud! We have made you a successor on the earth, so judge between people with truth and do not follow your own desires, letting them misguide you from the Way of Allah. Those who are misguided from the Way of Allah will receive a harsh punishment because they forgot the Day of Reckoning.' (38:21-26)


DAY OF HUNAYN

Allah has helped you on many occasions, including the Day of Hunayn when your great numbers delighted you but did not help you in any way, and the earth seemed narrow to you for all its great breadth, and you turned your backs. Then Allah sent down His serenity on His Messenger and on the believers, and sent down troops you could not see, and punished those who disbelieved. That is how the disbelievers are repaid. (9:25-26)


DAY OF JUDGEMENT

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful, the King of the Day of Judgement. You alone we worship. (1:1-3)

Death to the conjecturers: those who flounder in a glut of ignorance, asking, 'When is the Day of Judgement?' (51:10-12)

This will be their hospitality on the Day of Judgement!' (56:56)

(Believers are) those who affirm the Day of Judgement. (70:26)

What will convey to you what the Day of Judgement is? (82:17)

Again! What will convey to you what the Day of Judgement is? (82:18)


DAY OF RISING (THE HOUR)

Then you are the people who are killing one another and expelling a group among you from their homes, ganging up against them in wrongdoing and enmity. Yet if they are brought to you as captives, you ransom them, when it was forbidden for you to expel them in the first place! Do you, then, believe in one part of the Book and reject the other? What repayment will there be for any of you who do that except disgrace in this world? And on the Day of Rising, they will be returned to the harshest of punishments. Allah is not unaware of what you do. (2:85)

The Jews say, 'The Christians have nothing to stand on,' and the Christians say, 'The Jews have nothing to stand on,' yet they both recite the Book. Those who do not know say the same as they say. Allah will judge between them on the Day of Rising regarding the things about which they differ. (2:113)

Those who conceal what Allah has sent down of the Book and sell it cheap, take nothing into their bellies but the Fire. On the Day of Rising Allah will not speak to them or purify them. They will have a painful punishment. (2:174)

To those who disbelieve, the life of this world is painted in glowing colours and they laugh at those who believe. But on the Day of Rising those who fear Allah will be over them. Allah provides for whoever He wills without any reckoning. (2:212)

When Allah said, ''Isa, I will take you back and raise you up to Me and purify you of those who disbelieve. And I will place the people who follow you above those who disbelieve until the Day of Rising. Then you will all return to Me, and I will judge between you regarding the things about which you differed.' (3:55)

Those who sell Allah's contract and their own oaths for a paltry price, such people will have no portion in the hereafter and on the Day of Rising Allah will not speak to them or look at them or purify them. They will have a painful punishment. (3:77)

It is not for any prophet to be false to his trust. Those who are false will arrive on the Day of Rising with what they have misappropriated. Then every self will be paid in full for what it earned. They will not be wronged. (3:161)

Those who are tight-fisted with the bounty Allah has given them should not suppose that that is better for them. No indeed, it is worse for them! What they were tight-fisted with will be hung around their necks on the Day of Rising. Allah is the inheritor of the heavens and the earth and Allah is aware of what you do. (3:180)

Every self will taste death. You will be paid your wages in full on the Day of Rising. Anyone who is distanced from the Fire and admitted to the Garden has triumphed. The life of this world is just the enjoyment of delusion. (3:185)

(Believers say,) 'Our Lord, give us what You promised us through Your Messengers, and do not disgrace us on the Day of Rising. You do not break Your promise.' (3:194)

Allah, there is no god but Him. He will gather you to the Day of Rising about which there is no doubt. And whose speech could be truer than Allah's? (4:87)

Here you are arguing on their behalf in this world, but who will argue with Allah on their behalf on the Day of Rising? Who will act as guardian for them then? (4:109)

Those who anticipate the worst for you say, 'Were we not with you?' whenever you gain a victory from Allah, but if the disbelievers have a success they say, 'Did we not have the upper hand over you and yet in spite of that keep the believers away from you?' Allah will judge between you on the Day of Rising. Allah will not give the disbelievers any way against the believers. (4:141)

There is not one of the People of the Book who will not believe in him before he dies; and on the Day of Rising he ('Isa) will be a witness against them. (4:159)

We also made a covenant with those who say, 'We are Christians,' and they too forgot a good portion of what they were reminded of. So We stirred up enmity and hatred between them until the Day of Rising when Allah will inform them about what they did. (5:14)

As for those who disbelieve, if they had everything on the earth and the same again with it to ransom themselves from the punishment of the Day of Rising, it would not be accepted from them. They will have a painful punishment. (5:36)

The Jews say, 'Allah's hand is chained.' Their hands are chained and they are cursed for what they say! No! Both His hands are open wide and He gives however He wills. What has been sent down to you from your Lord increases many of them in insolence and disbelief. We have incited enmity and hatred between them until the Day of Rising. Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corrupters. (5:64)

Say: 'To whom does everything in the heavens and earth belong?' Say: 'To Allah.' He has made mercy incumbent on Himself. He will gather you to the Day of Rising about which there is no doubt. As for those who have lost their own selves, they have no faith. (6:12)

Those who deny the meeting with Allah have lost, so that, when the Hour comes upon them suddenly, they will say, 'Alas for what we neglected there!' They will bear their burdens on their backs. How evil is what they bear! (6:31)

Say: 'What do you think? If Allah's punishment were to come upon you or the Hour, would you call on other than Allah if you are being truthful?' (6:40)

Say: 'Who has forbidden the fine clothing Allah has produced for His servants and the good kinds of provision?' Say: 'On the Day of Rising such things will be exclusively for those who believed during their life in this world.' In this way We make the Signs clear for people who know. (7:32)

Then your Lord announced that He would send against them until the Day of Rising people who would inflict an evil punishment on them. Your Lord is Swift in Retribution. And He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (7:167)

When your Lord took out all their descendants from the loins of the children of Adam and made them testify against themselves 'Am I not your Lord?' they said, 'We testify that indeed You are!' Lest you say on the Day of Rising, 'We knew nothing of this.' (7:172)

They will ask you about the Hour: When is it due? Say: 'Knowledge of it rests with my Lord alone. He alone will reveal it at its proper time. It hangs heavy in the heavens and the earth. It will not come upon you except suddenly.' They will ask you as if you had full knowledge of it. Say: 'Knowledge of it rests with Allah alone. But most people do not know that.' (7:187)

What will those who invent lies against Allah think on the Day of Rising? Allah shows favour to mankind but most of them are not thankful. (10:60)

They were pursued by a curse in this world and on the Day of Rising. Yes indeed! 'Ad rejected their Lord, so away with 'Ad, the people of Hud! (11:60)

He (Pharaoh) will go ahead of his people on the Day of Rising and lead them down into the Fire. What an evil watering-hole to be led to! (11:98)

They are pursued by a curse in this world and on the Day of Rising. What an evil gift to be given! (11:99)

Do they feel secure that the all-enveloping punishment of Allah will not come upon them, or that the Last Hour will not come upon them all of a sudden when they least expect it? (12:107)

We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth. The Hour is certainly coming, so turn away graciously. (15:85)

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)

Then on the Day of Rising He will disgrace them, and say, 'Where are My partner gods for whose sake you became so hostile?' Those given knowledge will say, 'Today there is disgrace and evil for the disbelievers.' (16:27)

The Unseen of the heavens and earth belongs to Allah. The matter of the Hour is only the blink of an eye away, or even nearer. Allah has power over all things. (16:77)

The Sabbath was only enjoined on those who differed about it. Your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Rising regarding the things about which they differed. (16:124)

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)

There is no city We will not destroy before the Day of Rising, or punish with a terrible punishment. That is inscribed in the Book. (17:58)

He (Diabolis) said, 'Do you see this creature you have honoured over me? If You reprieve me till the Day of Rising, I will be the master of his descendants except for a very few.' (17:62)

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)

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)

(He said,) 'I do not think the Hour will ever come. But if I should be sent back to my Lord, I will definitely get something better in return.' (18:36)

Those are the people who reject their Lord's Signs and the meeting with Him. Their actions will come to nothing and, on the Day of Rising, We will not assign them any weight. (18:105)

Say: 'As for those who are astray, let the All-Merciful prolong their term until they see what they were promised, whether it be the punishment or the Hour. Then they will know who is in the worse position and has the weaker troops.' (19:75)

Each of them will come to Him on the Day of Rising all alone. (19:95)

The Hour is coming but I have concealed it so that every self can be repaid for its efforts. (20:15)

Those who turn away from it will bear a heavy burden on the Day of Rising, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. What an evil load they will bear on the Day of Rising! (20:100-101)

(He said,) 'But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one and on the Day of Rising We will gather him blind.' (20:124)

We will set up the Just Balance on the Day of Rising and no self will be wronged in any way. Even if it is no more than the weight of a grain of mustard-seed, We will produce it. We are sufficient as a Reckoner. (21:47)

... for the heedful: those who fear their Lord in the Unseen and are apprehensive about the Hour. (21:48-49)

Mankind, have fear of your Lord! The quaking of the Hour is a terrible thing. (22:1)

And the Hour is coming without any doubt and Allah will raise up all those in the graves. (22:7)

Among people there is one who argues about Allah without knowledge or guidance or any light-giving Book, turning away arrogantly, to misguide people from the Way of Allah. He will be disgraced in this world and on the Day of Rising We will make him taste the punishment of the Burning. (22:8-9)

As for those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabaeans and the Christians, Magians and idolaters, Allah will distinguish between them on the Day of Rising. Allah is witness of all things. (22:17)

But those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt of it until the Hour comes on them suddenly or the punishment of a desolate Day arrives. (22:55)

Allah will judge between you on the Day of Rising regarding everything about which you differed. (22:69)

Then on the Day of Rising you will be raised again. (23:16)

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

And on the Day of Rising his punishment will be doubled and he will be humiliated in it timelessly, for ever. (25:69)

We made them leaders, summoning to the Fire, and on the Day of Rising they will not be helped. (28:41)

We pursued them with a curse in this world and on the Day of Rising they will be hideous and spurned. (28:42)

Is someone whom We have promised good and who then obtains it, the same as someone whom We have given enjoyment in the life of this world and who then, on the Day of Rising, is one of those brought to punishment? (28:61)

Say: 'What do you think? If Allah made it permanent night for you till the Day of Rising, what god is there other than Allah to bring you light? Do you not then hear?' (28:71)

Say: 'What do you think? If Allah made it permanent day for you till the Day of Rising, what god is there other than Allah to bring you night to rest in? Do you not then see?' (28:72)

They will bear their own burdens and other burdens together with their own. On the Day of Rising they will be questioned about what they invented. (29:13)

He (Ibrahim) said, 'You have adopted idols apart from Allah as tokens of mutual affection in this world. But then on the Day of Rising you will reject one another and curse one another. The Fire will be your shelter. You will have no helpers.' (29:25)

On the Day the Hour arrives the evildoers will be in despair. (30:12)

On the Day the Hour arrives, that Day they will be split up. (30:14)

On the Day the Last Hour arrives, the evildoers will swear they have not even tarried for an hour. That is the extent to which they are deceived. (30:55)

Truly Allah has knowledge of the Hour and sends down abundant rain and knows what is in the womb. And no self knows what it will earn tomorrow and no self knows in what land it will die. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (31:34)

On the Day of Rising your Lord will decide between them regarding everything about which they differed. (32:25)

People will ask you about the Last Hour. Say: 'Only Allah has knowledge of it. What will make you understand? It may be that the Last Hour is very near.' (33:63)

Those who disbelieve say, 'The Hour will never come.' Say: 'Yes, by my Lord, it certainly will come!' He is the Knower of the Unseen, Whom not even the weight of the smallest particle eludes, either in the heavens or in the earth; nor is there anything smaller or larger than that which is not in a Clear Book. (34:3)

If you call on them they will not hear your call, and were they to hear, they would not respond to you. On the Day of Rising they will reject your making associates of them. No one can inform you like One Who is All-aware. (35:14)

Say: 'It is Allah I worship, making my religion sincerely His, so worship anything you will apart from Him!' Say: 'The real losers are those who lose themselves and their families on the Day of Rising.' Is not that clear loss? (39:14-15)

Is someone who tries to shield himself with his face from the worst of the torment on the Day of Rising ...? The wrongdoers will be told, 'Taste what you have earned.' (39:24)

Then on the Day of Rising you will argue in the presence of your Lord. (39:31)

If those who did wrong owned everything on earth, and the same again with it, they would offer it as a ransom to save themselves from the evil of the punishment on the Day of Rising. What confronts them from Allah will be something they did not reckon with. (39:47)

On the Day of Rising you will see those who lied against Allah with their faces blackened. Do not the arrogant have a dwelling place in Hell? (39:60)

They do not measure Allah with His true measure. The whole earth will be a mere handful for Him on the Day of Rising the heavens folded up in His right hand. Glory be to Him! He is exalted above the partners they ascribe! (39:67)

The Fire, morning and night, to which they are exposed; and on the Day the Hour takes place: 'Admit Pharaoh's people to the harshest punishment!' (40:46)

The Hour is coming-there is no doubt about it. But most of mankind have no faith. (40:59)

Those who adulterate Our Signs are not concealed from Us. Who is better-someone who will be thrown into the fire or someone who will arrive in safety on the Day of Rising? Do what you like. He sees whatever you do. (41:40)

Knowledge of the Hour is referred to Him. And no fruit emerges from its husk, nor does any female get pregnant or give birth, without His knowledge. On the Day He calls out to them: 'Where are My associates?' they will say, 'We declare to you that none of us is a witness.' (41:47)

But if We let him taste mercy from Us after he has suffered hardship, then he says, 'This is my due. I do not think that the Hour is going to come. And if I am returned to my Lord, I will definitely find the best reward with Him.' But We will inform those who disbelieve of what they did and make them suffer a ruthless punishment. (41:50)

It is Allah Who has sent down the Book with truth and with the Just Balance. What will make you realise? Perhaps the Hour is close. (42:17)

Those who do not believe in it try to hasten it. But those who believe in it are afraid of it. They know it is the truth. Those who doubt the Hour are greatly misguided. (42:18)

You will see them as they are exposed to it, abject in their abasement, glancing around them furtively. Those who believe will say, 'Truly the losers are those who lose themselves and their families on the Day of Rising.' The wrongdoers are in an everlasting punishment. (42:45)

He ('Isa) is a Sign of the Hour. Have no doubt about it. But follow me. This is a straight path. (43:61)

What are they waiting for, but the Hour to come upon them suddenly when they are not expecting it? (43:66)

Blessed be Him to Whom belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and everything in between them. The knowledge of the Hour is with Him. You will be returned to Him. (43:85)

We made the Commandments very clear to them and they only differed after knowledge came to them, tyrannising one other. Your Lord will decide between them on the Day of Rising regarding the things they differed about. (45:17)

Say: 'Allah gives you life, then causes you to die, and then will gather you together for the Day of Rising about which there is no doubt. But most people do not know it.' (45:26)

The kingdom of the heavens and earth belongs to Allah and, on the Day that the Hour arrives, that Day the liars will be lost. (45:27)

(The disbelievers will be told,) 'When you were told, "Allah's promise is true and so is the Hour, of which there is no doubt," you said, "We have no idea what the Hour is. We have only been conjecturing. We are by no means certain."' (45:32)

Who could be further astray than those who call on other things besides Allah, which will not respond to them until the Day of Rising and which are unaware of their prayers? (46:5)

What are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive? (47:18)

The Hour has drawn near and the moon has split. (54:1)

In fact the Hour is their promised appointment and the Hour is more disastrous and bitter! (54:46)

Do you not see that Allah knows what is in the heavens and on the earth? Three men cannot confer together secretly without Him being the fourth of them, or five without Him being the sixth of them, or fewer than that or more without Him being with them wherever they are. Then He will inform them on the Day of Rising of what they did. Allah has knowledge of all things. (58:7)

Neither your blood relations nor your children will be of any use to you. On the Day of Rising He will differentiate between you. Allah sees what you do. (60:3)

Or do you have oaths which bind Us, extending to the Day of Rising, that you will have whatever you decide? (68:39)

On that Day, the Occurrence will occur. (69:15)

Yet man still wants to deny what is ahead of him, asking, 'So when is the Day of Rising?' (75:5-6)

They ask you about the Hour: 'When will it come?' (79:42)

Has news of the Overwhelmer reached you? (88:1)


DEAD

How can you reject Allah, when you were dead and then He gave you life, then He will make you die and then give you life again, then you will be returned to Him? (2:28)

We said, 'Hit him with part of it!' In that way Allah gives life to the dead and He shows you His Signs so that hopefully you will understand. (2:73)

Do not say that those who are killed in the Way of Allah are dead. On the contrary, they are alive but you are not aware of it. (2:154)

In the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and day, and the ships which sail the seas to people's benefit, and the water which Allah sends down from the sky-by which He brings the earth to life when it was dead and scatters about in it creatures of every kind-and the varying direction of the winds, and the clouds subservient between heaven and earth, there are Signs for people who use their intellect. (2:164)

When Ibrahim said, 'My Lord, show me how You bring the dead to life.' He asked, 'Do you not then believe?' He replied, 'Indeed I do! But so that my heart may be at peace.' He said, 'Take four birds and train them to yourself. Then put a part of them on each mountain and call to them; they will come rushing to you. Know that Allah is Almighty, All-Wise.' (2:260)

(Say, 'O Allah!) You merge the night into the day. You merge the day into the night. You bring out the living from the dead. You bring out the dead from the living. You provide for whoever You will without any reckoning.' (3:27)

He will teach him ('Isa) the Book and Wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel, as a Messenger to the tribe of Israel, saying: 'I have brought you a Sign from your Lord. I will create the shape of a bird out of clay for you and then breathe into it and it will be a bird by Allah's permission. I will heal the blind and the leper, and bring the dead to life, by Allah's permission. I will tell you what you eat and what you store up in your homes. There is a Sign for you in that if you are believers.' (3:48-49)

Do not suppose that those killed in the Way of Allah are dead. No indeed! They are alive and well provided for in the very presence of their Lord. (3:169)

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)

Only those who can hear respond. As for the dead, Allah will raise them up, then to Him they will be returned. (6:36)

Allah is He Who splits the seed and kernel. He brings forth the living from the dead, and produces the dead out of the living. That is Allah, so how are you perverted? (6:95)

Even if We sent down angels to them, and the dead spoke to them, and We gathered together everything in front of them right before their eyes, they would still not believe unless Allah willed. The truth is that most of them are ignorant. (6:111)

Is someone who was dead and whom We brought to life, supplying him with a light by which to walk among people, the same as someone who is in utter darkness, unable to emerge from it? That is how what they were doing is made to seem attractive to the disbelievers. (6:122)

It is He Who sends out the winds, bringing advance news of His mercy, so that when they have lifted up the heavy clouds, We dispatch them to a dead land and send down water to it, by means of which We bring forth all kinds of fruit. In the same way We will bring forth the dead, so that hopefully you will pay heed. (7:57)

Say: 'Who provides for you out of heaven and earth? Who controls hearing and sight? Who brings forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living? Who directs the whole affair?' They will say, 'Allah.' Say, 'So will you not guard against evil?' (10:31)

Even if there was a Qur'an which moved mountains, or split the earth open or spoke to the dead...! On the contrary! The affair is Allah's altogether. Do those who believe not know that if Allah had wanted to He could have guided all mankind? Those who disbelieve will not cease to be struck by disaster for what they have done-or a disaster will happen close to their homes-until Allah's promise is fulfilled. Allah will not fail to keep His promise. (13:31)

They are dead, not alive, and they are not aware of when they will be raised. (16:21)

Allah sends down water from the sky and by it brings the dead earth back to life. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who hear. (16:65)

Mankind! If you are in any doubt about the Rising, know that We created you from dust then from a drop of sperm then from a clot of blood then from a lump of flesh, formed yet unformed, so We may make things clear to you. We make whatever We want stay in the womb until a specified time and then We bring you out as children so that you can reach your full maturity. Some of you die and some of you revert to the lowest form of life so that, after having knowledge, they then know nothing at all. And you see the earth dead and barren; then when We send down water onto it it quivers and swells and sprouts with luxuriant plants of every kind. (22:5)

That is because Allah is the Real and gives life to the dead and has power over all things. (22:6)

It is He Who sends out the winds, bringing advance news of His mercy. And We send down from heaven pure water so that by it We can bring a dead land to life and give drink to many of the animals and people We created. (25:48-49)

You will not make dead men hear and you will not make deaf men hear the call when they turn their backs in flight. (27:80)

If you ask them, 'Who sends down water from the sky, bringing the earth back to life again after it was dead?' they will say, 'Allah.' Say: 'Praise be to Allah.' But most of them do not use their intellect. (29:63)

He brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living and brings the earth to life after it was dead. In the same way you too will be brought forth. (30:19)

Among His Signs is that He shows you lightning, a source of fear and eager hope, and sends down water from the sky, bringing the dead earth back to life by it. There are certainly Signs in that for people who use their intellect. (30:24)

So look at the effect of the mercy of Allah, how He brings the dead earth back to life. Truly He is the One Who brings the dead to life. He has power over all things. (30:50)

You will not make dead men hear; you will not make deaf men hear the call, when they turn their backs in flight. (30:52)

It is Allah Who sends the winds which raise the clouds which We then drive to a dead land and by them bring the earth to life after it was dead. That is how the Resurrection will be. (35:9)

The living and dead are not the same. Allah makes anyone He wills hear but you cannot make those in the grave hear. (35:22)

We bring the dead to life and We record what they send ahead and what they leave behind. We have listed everything in a clear register. (36:12)

A Sign for them is the dead land which We bring to life and from which We bring forth grain of which they eat. (36:33)

Among His Signs is that you see the earth laid bare and then when We send down water on it, it quivers and swells. He Who gives it life is He Who gives life to the dead. Certainly He has power over all things. (41:39)

Have they then taken others besides Him as protectors? But Allah is the Protector. He gives life to the dead. He has power over all things. (42:9)

It is He Who sends down water in due measure from the sky by which We bring a dead land back to life. That is how you too will be brought forth. (43:11)

Do they not see that Allah-He Who created the heavens and the earth and was not wearied by creating them-has the power to bring the dead to life? Yes indeed! He has power over all things. (46:33)

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 We sent down blessed water from the sky and made gardens grow by it and grain for harvesting and soaring date-palms with layered spathes, as provision for Our servants; by it We brought a dead land to life. That is how the Emergence will take place. (50:9-11)

Know that Allah brings the earth to life after it was dead. We have made the Signs clear to you so that hopefully you will use your intellect. (57:17)

Is He Who does this not able to bring the dead to life? (75:40)

Did We not make the earth a receptacle for the living and the dead? (77:25-26)


DEAF

Deaf, dumb, blind. They will not return. (2:18)

The likeness of those who disbelieve is that of the beast which, call out to it as one may, can hear nothing but a shout and a cry. Deaf-dumb-blind. They do not use their intellect. (2:171)

They thought there would be no testing. They were blind and deaf. Then Allah turned towards them. Then many of them went blind and deaf again. Allah sees what they do. (5:71)

Those who deny Our Signs are deaf and dumb in utter darkness. Allah misguides whoever He wills, and puts whoever He wills on a straight path. (6:39)

The worst of beasts in Allah's sight are the deaf and dumb who have no intellect. (8:22)

The likeness of the two groups is that of the blind and deaf and the seeing and hearing. Are they the same as one another? So will you not pay heed? (11:24)

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)

Say: 'I can only warn you through the Revelation.' But the deaf cannot hear the call when they are warned. (21:45)

(Believers are) those who, when they are reminded of the Signs of their Lord, do not turn their backs, deaf and blind to them; (25:73)

You will not make dead men hear and you will not make deaf men hear the call when they turn their backs in flight. (27:80)

You will not make dead men hear; you will not make deaf men hear the call, when they turn their backs in flight. (30:52)

Such are the people Allah has cursed, making them deaf and blinding their eyes. (47:23)


DEATH

Or (their likeness is) that of a storm-cloud in the sky, full of darkness, thunder and lightning. They put their fingers in their ears against the thunderclaps, fearful of death. Allah encompasses the disbelievers. (2:19)

Then We brought you back to life after your death, so that perhaps you would show thanks. (2:56)

Say, 'If the abode of the hereafter with Allah is for you alone, to the exclusion of all others, then long for death if you are telling the truth.' But they will never ever long for it because of what they have done. Allah knows the wrongdoers. (2:94-95)

Or were you present when death came to Ya'qub and he said to his sons, 'What will you worship when I have gone?' They said, 'We will worship your God, the God of your forefathers, Ibrahim, Isma'il and Ishaq-one God. We are Muslims submitted to Him.' (2:133)

It is prescribed for you, when death approaches one of you and if he has some goods to leave, to make a will in favour of his parents and relatives, correctly and fairly: a duty for all those who guard against evil. (2:180)

What do you think about those who left their homes in thousands in fear of death? Allah said to them, 'Die!' and then brought them back to life. Allah shows great favour to mankind, but most people are not grateful. (2:243)

You were longing for death before you met it. Now you have seen it with your own eyes. (3:143)

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)

Every self will taste death. You will be paid your wages in full on the Day of Rising. Anyone who is distanced from the Fire and admitted to the Garden has triumphed. The life of this world is just the enjoyment of delusion. (3:185)

If any of your women commit fornication, four of you must be witnesses against them. If they bear witness, detain them in their homes until death releases them or Allah ordains another procedure for their case. (4:15)

There is no repentance for people who persist in doing evil until death comes to them and who then say, 'Now I repent,' nor for people who die disbelievers. We have prepared for them a painful punishment. (4:18)

Wherever you are, death will catch up with you, even if you are in impregnable fortresses. If a good thing happens to them, they say, 'This has come from Allah.' But if a bad thing happens to them, they say, 'This has come from you.' Say, 'Everything comes from Allah.' What is the matter with these people that they scarcely understand a single word? (4:78)

Those who migrate in the Way of Allah will find many places of refuge on the earth and ample sustenance. If anyone leaves his home, migrating to Allah and His Messenger, and death catches up with him, it is Allah Who will reward him. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (4:100)

You who believe! When one of you is near to death and makes a will, two just men from among you should act as witnesses; or, if you are travelling when the misfortune of death occurs, two men who are strangers to you. You should detain them after prayer and, if you are doubtful, they should swear by Allah: 'We will not sell it for any price, even to a near relative, and we will not conceal the testimony of Allah. If we did we would indeed be wrongdoers.' (5:106)

He is the Absolute Master over His servants. He sends angels to watch over you. Then when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and they do not fail in their task. (6:61)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents lies against Allah or denies His Signs, or who says, 'It has been revealed to me,' when nothing has been revealed to him, or someone who says, 'I will send down the same as Allah has sent down'? If you could only see the wrongdoers in the throes of death when the angels are stretching out their hands, saying, 'Disgorge your own selves! Today you will be repaid with the punishment of humiliation for saying something other than the truth about Allah, and being arrogant about His Signs.' (6:93)

Just as your Lord brought you out from your house with truth, even though a group of the believers disliked it, arguing with you about the Truth after it had been made clear as though they were being driven to their death with open eyes. (8:5-6)

It is He Who created the heavens and the earth in six days when His Throne was on the water, in order to test which of you has the best actions. If you say, 'You will be raised up after death,' those who disbelieve will say, 'This is nothing but downright magic.' (11:7)

He gulps at it but can hardly swallow it down. Death comes at him from every side but he does not die. And beyond him is relentless punishment. (14:17)

Then We would have let you taste a double punishment in life and a double punishment in death. You would not have found any helper against Us. (17:75)

Every self will taste death. We test you with both good and evil as a trial. And you will be returned to Us. (21:35)

When death comes to one of them, he says, 'My Lord, send me back again.' (23:99)

But they have adopted gods apart from Him which do not create anything but are themselves created. They have no power to harm or help themselves. They have no power over death or life or resurrection. (25:3)

(Ibrahim said, 'It is) He Who will cause my death, then give me life.' (26:81)

Every self will taste death. Then you will be returned to Us. (29:57)

Say: 'The Angel of Death, who has been given charge of you, will take you back and then you will be sent back to your Lord.' (32:11)

Say: 'Flight will not benefit you if you try to run away from death or being killed. Then you will only enjoy a short respite.' (33:16)

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, and are begrudging towards you. Then when fear comes, you see them looking at you, their eyes rolling like people scared to death. But when fear departs they flay you with sharp tongues, grasping for wealth. Such people have no faith and Allah will make their actions come to nothing. That is easy for Allah. (33:18-19)

They are an accursed people. Wherever they are found they should be seized and mercilessly put to death. (33:61)

Then when We decreed that he (Sulayman) should die, nothing divulged his death to them except the worm which ate his staff; so that when he fell down it was made clear to the jinn that if they had truly had knowledge of the Unseen they need not have stayed there suffering humiliating punishment. (34:14)

(Say,) 'Are we not going to die, except for our first death? Are we not going to be punished?' (37:58-59)

Allah takes back people's selves when their death arrives and those who have not yet died, while they are asleep. He keeps hold of those whose death has been decreed and sends the others back for a specified term. There are certainly Signs in that for people who reflect. (39:42)

(These people say,) 'There is nothing more than our first death. We will not be raised up a second time.' (44:35)

They will not taste any death there-except for the first one. He will safeguard them from the punishment of the Blazing Fire. (44:56)

Or do those who perpetrate evil deeds suppose that We will make them like those who believe and do right actions, so that their lives and deaths will be the same? How bad their judgement is! (45:21)

Those who believe say, 'If only a sura could be sent down.' But when a straightforward sura is sent down and fighting is mentioned in it, you see those with sickness in their hearts looking at you with the look of someone about to faint from fear of death. More fitting for them would be obedience and honourable words. Once the matter is resolved upon, being true to Allah would be better for them. (47:20-21)

The throes of death come revealing the truth. That is what you were trying to evade! (50:19)

(Has he not been informed) that it is He Who brings about both death and life? (53:44)

We have decreed death for you and We will not be forestalled. (56:60)

Say: 'You Jews, if you claim to be the friends of Allah to the exclusion of all other people, then wish for death if you are telling the truth.' But they will never ever wish for it because of what they have done. Allah knows the wrongdoers. (62:6-7)

Say: 'Death, from which you are fleeing, will certainly catch up with you. Then you will be returned to the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible and He will inform you about what you did.' (62:8)

Give from what We have provided for you before death comes to one of you and he says, 'My Lord, if only you would give me a little more time so that I can give charity and be one of the righteous!' (63:10)

He Who created death and life to test which of you is best in action. He is the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving. (67:2)

(He who is given his Book in his left hand will say,) 'If only death had really been the end!' (69:27)
