ENJOYMENT OF THIS WORLD

But Satan made them slip up by means of it, expelling them from where they were. We said, 'Go down from here as enemies to each other! You will have residence on the earth and enjoyment for a time.' (2:36)

To mankind the love of worldly appetites is painted in glowing colours: women and children, and heaped-up mounds of gold and silver, and horses with fine markings, and livestock and fertile farmland. All that is merely the enjoyment of the life of this world. The best homecoming is in the presence of Allah. (3:14)

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)

Do you not see those who were told: 'Hold back from fighting but perform prayer and give the alms'? Then when fighting is prescribed for them, a group of them fear people as Allah should be feared, or even more than that. They say, 'Our Lord, why have you prescribed fighting for us? If only You would give us just a little more time!' Say, 'The enjoyment of this world is very brief. The hereafter is better for those who guard against evil. You will not be wronged by so much as the smallest speck.' (4:77)

He said, 'Go down from here as enemies to each other! You will have residence on the earth and enjoyment for a time.' (7:24)

But then, when He does rescue them, they become rebellious in the earth without any right to do so. Mankind, your rebelliousness is only against yourselves. There is the enjoyment of the life of this world and then you will return to Us and We will inform you about what you did. (10:23)

There is the enjoyment of this world. Then they will return to Us. Then We will let them taste the terrible punishment because they disbelieved. (10:70)

'Ask your Lord for forgiveness and then repent to Him. He will let you enjoy a good life until a specified time, and will give His favour to all who merit it. But if you turn your backs, I fear for you the punishment of a Mighty Day.' (11:3)

He sends down water from the sky and river-beds fill up and flow according to their size, and the floodwater carries with it an increasing layer of scum; a similar kind of scum comes from what you heat up in the fire, when you desire to make jewellery or other things. That is how Allah depicts the true and the false. As for the scum, it is quickly swept away. But as for that which is of use to people, it remains behind in the ground. That is a metaphor which Allah has made. (13:17)

Allah expands provision to anyone He wills and restricts it. They rejoice in the life of this world. Yet the life of this world, compared to the hereafter, is only fleeting enjoyment. (13:26)

A brief enjoyment (will be theirs), then they will have a painful punishment. (16:117)

Those who cannot find the means to marry should be abstinent until Allah enriches them from His bounty. If any slaves you own want to make a contract to free themselves, write it for them if you know of good in them and give them some of the wealth Allah has given you. Do not force your slavegirls to prostitute themselves if they desire to be virtuous women out of your desire for the goods of this world. If anyone forces them, then after they have been forced, Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (24:33)

They will say, 'Glory be to You! It would not have been fitting for us to have taken any protectors apart from You. But You let them and their fathers enjoy themselves so that they forgot the Reminder. They were people devoid of good.' (25:18)

Do you think, if We let them enjoy themselves for years and then what they were promised comes to them, that what they enjoyed will be of any use to them? (26:205-207)

Anything you have been given is only the enjoyment of the life of this world and its finery. What is with Allah is better and longer lasting. So will you not use your intellect? (28:60)

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)

When harm touches people they call on their Lord, repenting to Him. But then, when He gives them a taste of mercy from Him, a group of them immediately associate others with their Lord to show ingratitude for what We have given them. 'Enjoy yourselves-you will soon know.' (30:33-34)

We will let them enjoy themselves a little, then drive them to a harsh punishment. (31:24)

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)

(The man who believed said,) 'My people! The life of this world is only fleeting enjoyment. It is the hereafter which is the abode of permanence.' (40:39)

Whatever you have been given is only the enjoyment of the life of this world. What is with Allah is better and longer lasting for those who believe and trust in their Lord. (42:36)

I let those people and their forefathers enjoy themselves until the truth came to them and a Messenger to make it clear. (43:29)

Were it not that mankind might all become one community, We would have given those who reject the All-Merciful silver roofs to their houses and silver stairways to ascend and silver doors to their houses and silver couches on which to recline, and gold ornaments. All that is merely the trappings of the life of this world. But the hereafter with your Lord is for those who guard against evil. (43:33-35)

Allah will admit those who believe to Gardens with rivers flowing under them. Those who disbelieve have their enjoyment, eating as cattle eat, but the Fire will be their final residence. (47:12)

Know that the life of this world is merely a game and a diversion and ostentation and a cause of boasting among yourselves and trying to outdo one another in wealth and children: like the plant-growth after rain which delights the cultivators, but then it withers and you see it turning yellow, and then it becomes broken stubble. In the hereafter there is terrible punishment but also forgiveness from Allah and His good pleasure. The life of this world is nothing but the enjoyment of delusion. (57:20)


ENVY

Many of the People of the Book would love it if they could turn you back to disbelief after you have become believers, showing their innate envy now that the truth is clear to them. But you should pardon and overlook until Allah gives His command. Truly Allah has power over all things. (2:109)

Mankind was a single community. Then Allah sent out Prophets bringing good news and giving warning, and with them He sent down the Book with truth to decide between people regarding their differences. Only those who were given it differed about it, after the Clear Signs had come to them, envying one another. Then, by His permission, Allah guided those who believed to the truth of that about which they had differed. Allah guides whoever He wills to a straight path. (2:213)

The religion with Allah is Islam. Those given the Book only differed after knowledge had come to them, envying one another. As for those who reject Allah's Signs, Allah is swift at reckoning. (3:19)

Or do they in fact envy other people for the bounty Allah has granted them? We gave the family of Ibrahim the Book and Wisdom, and We gave them an immense kingdom. (4:54)

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)


EQUATING ONE'S WIFE WITH ONE'S MOTHER (ZIHAR)

Allah has not allotted to any man two hearts within his breast, nor has He made those of your wives you equate with your mothers your actual mothers, nor has He made your adopted sons your actual sons. These are just words coming out of your mouths. But Allah speaks the truth and He guides to the Way. (33:4)

Those of you who divorce your wives by equating them with your mothers, they are not your mothers. Your mothers are only those who gave birth to you. What you are saying is wrong and a slanderous lie. But Allah is Ever-Pardoning, Ever-Forgiving. (58:2)

Those who divorce their wives by equating them with their mothers, and then wish to go back on what they said, must set free a slave before the two of them may touch one another. This is what you are enjoined to do. Allah is aware of what you do. (58:3)


ESTEEM

When the angels said, 'Maryam, your Lord gives you good news of a Word from Him. His name is the Messiah, 'Isa, son of Maryam, of high esteem in this world and the hereafter, and one of those brought near.' (3:45)

They said, 'Shu'ayb, We do not understand much of what you say and we see you are weak among us. Were it not for your clan, we would have stoned you. We do not hold you in high esteem!' (11:91)

He said, 'My people! Do you esteem my clan more than you do Allah? You have made Him into something to cast disdainfully behind your backs! But my Lord encompasses everything that you do!' (11:92)

(Ibrahim said, 'My Lord,) make me highly esteemed among the later peoples.' (26:84)


EVENING GLOW

No, I swear by the evening glow, (84:16)


EVERLASTING

They will want to get out of the Fire but they will not be able to. They will have an everlasting punishment. (5:37)

Their Lord gives them the good news of His mercy and good pleasure and Gardens where they will enjoy everlasting delight, remaining in them timelessly, for ever and ever. Truly there is an immense reward with Allah. (9:21-22)

Allah has promised the men and women of the hypocrites and disbelievers the Fire of Hell, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. It will suffice them. Allah has cursed them. They will have everlasting punishment. (9:68)

(Nuh said,) 'You will soon know who will receive a punishment which disgraces him and find unleashed against himself an everlasting punishment.' (11:39)

But Satan whispered to him, saying, 'Adam, shall I show you the way to the Tree of Everlasting Life and to a kingdom which will never fade away?' (20:120)

Say: 'My people, do as you think best; that is what I am doing. You will soon know who will receive a punishment which disgraces him and will unleash against himself an everlasting punishment.' (39:39-40)

You will see them as they are exposed to it (the punishment), 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)

Allah, the Everlasting Sustainer of all. (112:2)


EVIL

He (Satan) only commands you to do evil and indecent acts and to say about Allah what you do not know. (2:169)

What they call on apart from Him are female idols. What they call on is an arrogant Satan whom Allah has cursed. He said, 'I will take a certain fixed proportion of Your servants. I will lead them astray and fill them with false hopes. I will command them and they will cut off cattle's ears. I will command them and they will change Allah's creation.' Anyone who takes Satan as his protector in place of Allah has clearly lost everything. (4:117-119)

On the Day We gather them all together: 'Company of jinn, you gained many followers among mankind.' And their friends among mankind will say, 'Our Lord, we benefited from one another, and now we have reached the term which You determined for us.' He will say, 'The Fire is your home. You will be in it timelessly, for ever, except as Allah wills. Your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.' (6:128)

You who believe! Do not follow in the footsteps of Satan. Anyone who follows in Satan's footsteps should know that he commands indecency and wrongdoing. Were it not for Allah's favour to you and His mercy, not one of you would ever have been purified. But Allah purifies whoever He wills. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (24:21)

(Yusuf said,) 'I do not say my self was free from blame. The self indeed commands to evil acts-except for those my Lord has mercy on. My Lord, He is Forgiving, Merciful.' (12:53)

We created man and We know what his own self whispers to him. We are nearer to him than his jugular vein. (50:16)

Allah commands justice and doing good and giving to relatives. And He forbids indecency and doing wrong and tyranny. He warns you so that hopefully you will pay heed. (16:90)

Whoever acts rightly, it is to his own good. Whoever does evil, it is to his detriment. Your Lord does not wrong His servants. (41:46)

Whoever acts rightly, it is to his own good. Whoever does evil, it is to his detriment. Then you will be returned to your Lord. (45:15)

(Believers are) those who avoid major wrong actions and indecencies and who, when they are angered, then forgive. (42:37)

The repayment of a bad action is one equivalent to it. But if someone pardons and puts things right, his reward is with Allah. Certainly He does not love wrongdoers. But if people do defend themselves when they are wronged, nothing can be held against them for doing that. There are only grounds against those who wrong people and act as tyrants in the earth without any right to do so. Such people will have a painful punishment. (42:40-42)

Any good thing that happens to you comes from Allah. Any bad thing that happens to you comes from yourself. We have sent you to mankind as a Messenger. Allah suffices as a Witness. (4:79)

Those who join forces for good will receive a reward for it. Those who join forces for evil will be answerable for it. Allah oversees all things. (4:85)

You who believe! Do not profane the sacred rites of Allah or the sacred months, or the sacrificial animals, or the ritual garlands, or those heading for the Sacred House, desiring profit and good pleasure from their Lord. When your pilgrimage is over, then you may hunt. Do not let hatred for a people who debar you from the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram) incite you into going beyond the limits. Help each other to goodness and heedfulness. Do not help each other to wrongdoing and enmity. Have fear of Allah. Allah is severe in retribution. (5:2)

But as for those who have earned bad actions-a bad action will be repaid with one the like of it. Debasement will darken them. They will have no one to protect them from Allah. It is as if their faces were covered by dark patches of the night. Those are the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (10:27)

Whoever does an atom's weight of evil will see it. (99:8)

Those who produce a good action will receive ten like it. But those who produce a bad action will only be repaid with its equivalent and they will not be wronged. (6:160)

Or do those who do bad actions imagine they can outstrip Us? How bad their judgement is! (29:4)


EVIL CONSEQUENCE

You who believe! Do not kill game while you are in the state of pilgrimage. If one of you kills any deliberately, the reprisal for it is a livestock animal equivalent to what he killed, as judged by two just men among you, a sacrifice to reach the Kaaba, or expiation by feeding the poor, or fasting commensurate with that, so that he may taste the evil consequences of what he did. Allah has pardoned all that took place in the past; but if anyone does it again Allah will take revenge on him. Allah is Almighty, Exactor of Revenge. (5:95)

Has the news not reached you of those who disbelieved before and tasted the evil consequences of what they did? They will have a painful punishment. (64:5)


EVIL OMEN

They (his people) said (to Salih), 'We see you, and those with you, as an evil omen.' He said, 'No, your evil omen is with Allah; you are merely a people undergoing a trial.' (27:47)

They (the inhabitants of the city) said, 'We see an evil omen in you. If you do not stop we will stone you and you will suffer a painful punishment at our hands.' (36:18)

They (messengers) said, 'Your evil omen is in yourselves. Is it not just that you have been reminded? No, you are an unbridled people!' (36:19)


EVILDOING - EVILDOERS

Do not argue on behalf of those who betray themselves. Allah does not love any evildoing traitors. (4:107)

If anyone commits an evil action the responsibility for it is his alone. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (4:111)

Why do their scholars and rabbis not prohibit them from evil speech and acquiring ill-gotten gains? What an evil thing they invent! (5:63)

In that way We make the Signs plain so that you may clearly see the path of the evildoers. (6:55)

If they call you a liar, say: 'Your Lord possesses boundless mercy, but His violent force cannot be averted from the people of the evildoers.' (6:147)

As for those who deny Our Signs and are arrogant regarding them, the Gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, and they will not enter the Garden until a camel goes through a needle's eye. That is how We repay the evildoers. (7:40)

We rained down a rain upon them. See the final fate of the evildoers! (7:84)

So We sent down on them floods, locusts, lice, frogs and blood, Signs, clear and distinct, but they proved arrogant and were an evildoing people. (7:133)

This was so that He might verify the Truth and nullify the false, even though the evildoers hate that. (8:8)

(Say,) 'Do not try to excuse yourselves. You have disbelieved after believing. If one group of you is pardoned, another group will be punished for being evildoers.' (9:66)

We destroyed generations before you when they did wrong. Their Messengers brought them the Clear Signs, but they were never going to believe. That is how We repay evildoers. (10:13)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents lies against Allah or denies His Signs? Evildoers are certainly not successful. (10:17)

Say: 'What do you think? If His punishment came upon you by night or day, what part of it would the evildoers then try to hasten?' (10:50)

Then after them We sent Musa and Harun with Our Signs to Pharaoh and his ruling circle, but they were arrogant and were a people of evildoers. (10:75)

Allah confirms the Truth by His words, even though the evildoers hate it. (10:82)

(Hud said,) 'My people! Ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send heaven down to you in abundant rain, and increase you with strength upon strength. Do not turn away as evildoers.' (11:52)

Would that there had been more people with a vestige of good among the generations of those who came before you, who forbade corruption in the earth, other than the few among them whom We saved. Those who did wrong gladly pursued the life of luxury that they were given and were evildoers. (11:116)

Then when the Messengers despaired and thought themselves denied, Our help came to them, and those We willed were saved. Our violent force cannot be averted from people who are evildoers. (12:110)

That Day you will see the evildoers yoked together in chains, (14:49)

In that way We insert it (mockery) into the evildoers' hearts. (15:12)

They (messengers) said, 'We have been sent to a people who are evildoers.' (15:58)

As for those the angels take in death while they are wronging themselves, they will offer their submission: 'We did not do any evil.' Oh yes you did! Allah knows what you were doing. (16:28)

The Book will be set in place and you will see the evildoers fearful of what is in it. They will say, 'Alas for us! What is this Book which does not pass over any action, small or great, without recording it?' They will find there everything they did and your Lord will not wrong anyone at all. (18:49)

The evildoers will see the Fire and realise they are going to fall into it and find no way of escaping from it. (18:53)

But We will drive the evildoers to Hell, like cattle to a watering hole. (19:86)

As for those who come to their Lord as evildoers, they will have Hell where they will neither die nor stay alive. (20:74)

On the Day the Trumpet is blown-and We will gather the evildoers sightless on that Day. (20:102)

There is a group of you who propagated the lie. Do not suppose it to be bad for you; rather it is good for you. Every one of them will incur the evil he has earned and the one who took it on himself to amplify it will receive a terrible punishment. (24:11)

On the Day they see the angels, there will be no good news that Day for the evildoers. They will say, 'There is an absolute ban.' (25:22)

In this way We have assigned to every Prophet an enemy from among the evildoers. But your Lord is a sufficient guide and helper. (25:31)

(They will say,) 'It was only the evildoers who misguided us.' (26:99)

That is how We thread it into the hearts of the evildoers. (26:200)

Say: 'Travel about the earth and see the final fate of the evildoers.' (27:69)

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

He (Qarun) said, 'I have only been given it because of knowledge I have.' Did he not know that before him Allah had destroyed generations with far greater strength than his and far more possessions? The evildoers will not be questioned about their sins. (28:78)

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

Before you We sent other Messengers to their people, and they too brought them the Clear Signs. We took revenge on those who did evil; and it is Our duty to help the believers. (30:47)

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)

If only you could see the evildoers hanging their heads in shame before their Lord: 'Our Lord, we have seen and we have heard, so send us back again and we will act rightly. Truly we now have certainty.' (32:12)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who is reminded of the Signs of his Lord and then turns away from them? We will take revenge on the evildoers. (32:22)

Say: 'You will not be asked about any evil we committed and we will not be asked about what you did.' (34:25)

Those deemed great will say to those deemed weak, 'Did we debar you from the guidance when it came to you? No, it is you who were evildoers.' (34:32)

'Keep yourselves apart today, you evildoers!' (36:59)

That is how We deal with evildoers. (37:34)

The evildoers will remain timelessly, for ever, in the punishment of Hell. (43:74)

He (Musa) called out to his Lord, 'These are evildoing people.' (44:22)

Are they better or the people of Tubba' and those before them whom We destroyed? They were certainly evildoers. (44:37)

But as for those who disbelieved: 'Were My Signs not recited to you and yet you proved arrogant; you were a people of evildoers?' (45:31)

... a wind containing painful punishment, destroying everything at its Lord's command! When morning came you could see nothing but their dwellings. That is how We repay the people of the evildoers. (46:24-25)

They said, 'We have been sent to a people of evildoers, ' (51:32)

The evildoers are indeed misguided and insane. (54:47)

The evildoers will be recognised by their mark and seized by their forelocks and their feet. (55:41)

This is Hell which the evildoers deny. (55:43)

Would We make the Muslims the same as the evildoers? (68:35)

(On the Day) no good friend will ask about his friend even though they can see each other. 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. (70:10-14)

In Gardens they (believers) will ask the evildoers: 'What caused you to enter Saqar?' (74:40-42)

Therefore wait patiently for the judgement of your Lord. Do not obey any evildoer or thankless man among them. (76:24)

That is how We deal with evildoers. (77:18)

'Eat and enjoy yourselves for a little while. You are evildoers.' (77:46)

Those who did evil used to laugh at those who believed. (83:29)


EXCESS

He has only forbidden you carrion, blood and pork and what has been consecrated to other than Allah. But anyone who is forced to eat it-without desiring it or going to excess in it-commits no crime. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (2:173)

All they said was, 'Our Lord, forgive us our wrong actions and any excesses we went to in what we did and make our feet firm and help us against these disbelieving people.' (3:147)

People of the Book! Do not go to excess in your religion. Say nothing but the truth about Allah. The Messiah, 'Isa son of Maryam, was only the Messenger of Allah and His Word, which He cast into Maryam, and a Spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His Messengers. Do not say, 'Three.' It is better that you stop. Allah is only One God. He is too Glorious to have a son! Everything in the heavens and in the earth belongs to Him. Allah suffices as a Guardian. (4:171)

Say: 'I do not find, in what has been revealed to me, any food it is forbidden to eat except for carrion, flowing blood, and pork-for that is unclean-or some deviance consecrated to other than Allah. But if anyone is forced to eat it, without desiring to or going to excess in it, your Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.' (6:145)

They allot to Allah what they themselves dislike and their tongues frame the lie that they will receive the Best. There is no doubt at all that they will receive the Fire and that they are people who go to excess. (16:62)

He has forbidden you carrion, blood and pork and anything consecrated to other than Allah. But if someone is forced to eat it, without desiring to or going to excess in it, your Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (16:115)

Do not kill any person Allah has made inviolate, except with the right to do so. If someone is wrongly killed We have given authority to his next of kin. But he should not be excessive in taking life. He will be helped. (17:33)

Eat of the good things We have provided for you but do not go to excess in it or My anger will be unleashed on you. Anyone who has My anger unleashed on him has plunged to his ruin. (20:81)


EXCESSIVENESS

But Allah is mocking them, and drawing them on, as they wander blindly in their excessive insolence. (2:15)

He has only forbidden you carrion, blood and pork and what has been consecrated to other than Allah. But anyone who is forced to eat it-without desiring it or going to excess in it-commits no crime. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (2:173)

People of the Book! Do not go to excess in your religion. Say nothing but the truth about Allah. The Messiah, 'Isa son of Maryam, was only the Messenger of Allah and His Word, which He cast into Maryam, and a Spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His Messengers. Do not say, 'Three.' It is better that you stop. Allah is only One God. He is too Glorious to have a son! Everything in the heavens and in the earth belongs to Him. Allah suffices as a Guardian. (4:171)

If Allah were to hasten evil for people the way they try to hasten good, their term would already have been completed for them. We abandon those who do not expect to meet Us to wander blindly in their excessive insolence. (10:11)

If We did have mercy on them and removed the harm afflicting them, they would still obstinately persist in wandering blindly in their excessive insolence. (23:75)


EXPEDITION TO TABUK

You who believe! What is the matter with you that when you are told, 'Go out and fight in the way of Allah,' you sink down heavily to the earth? Are you happier with this world than the hereafter? Yet the enjoyment of this world is very small compared to that of the hereafter. (9:38)

If you do not go out to fight, He will punish you with a painful punishment and substitute another people in your place. You will not harm Him in any way. Allah has power over all things. (9:39)

Those who were left behind were glad to stay behind the Messenger of Allah. They did not want to strive with their wealth and themselves in the Way of Allah. They said, 'Do not go out to fight in the heat.' Say: 'The Fire of Hell is much hotter, if they only understood.' (9:81)

If Allah returns you to a group of them, and they ask you for permission to go out, say, 'You will never go out with me, nor will you ever fight an enemy with me. You were happy to stay behind the first time, so stay behind with those who are left behind.' (9:83)

The desert arabs came with their excuses asking for permission to stay, and those who lied to Allah and His Messenger stayed behind. A painful punishment will afflict those among them who disbelieve. (9:90)

Nothing is held against the weak and sick nor against those who find nothing to spend, provided they are true to Allah and His Messenger-there is no way open against good-doers, Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful-nor is anything held against those who, when they came to you for you to provide them with mounts and you said, 'I cannot find anything on which to mount you,' turned away with their eyes overflowing with tears, overcome by grief at having nothing to give. (9:91-92)

There are only grounds against those who ask you for permission to stay when they are rich. They were pleased to be among those who were left behind. Allah has sealed up their hearts so they do not know. (9:93)

But others have acknowledged their wrong actions and mixed a right action with another which is wrong. It may well be that Allah will turn towards them. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (9:102)

Allah has turned towards the Prophet, and the Migrants (Muhajirun) and the Supporters (Ansar), those who followed him at the 'time of difficulty', after the hearts of a group of them had almost deviated. Then He turned towards them-He is All-Gentle, Most Merciful to them-and also towards the three who were left behind, so that when the earth became narrow for them, for all its great breadth, and their own selves became constricted for them and they realised that there was no refuge from Allah except in Him, He turned to them so that they might turn to Him. Allah is the Ever-Returning, the Most Merciful. (9:117-118)


EXPELLING

When those who disbelieve were plotting against you to imprison you or kill you or expel you: they were plotting and Allah was plotting, but Allah is the Best of Plotters. (8:30)

Those who were expelled from their homes without any right, merely for saying, 'Our Lord is Allah' (if Allah had not driven some people back by means of others, monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, where Allah's name is mentioned much, would have been pulled down and destroyed. Allah will certainly help those who help Him-Allah is All-Strong, Almighty), (22:40)

It is He Who expelled those who disbelieved among the People of the Book from their homes to the first gathering-place. You did not think that they would leave and they thought that their fortresses would protect them from Allah. Then Allah came upon them from where they least expected it and cast terror into their hearts. Their houses were pulled down by their own hands and by the hands of the believers. People of insight, take note! (59:2)


EXPIATION

We prescribed for them in it: a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and retaliation for wounds. But if anyone forgoes that as a charity, it will act as expiation for him. Those who do not judge by what Allah has sent down, such people are wrongdoers. (5:45)

Allah does not take you to task for your inadvertent oaths, but He will take you to task for oaths you make intentionally. The expiation in that case is to feed ten poor people with the average amount you feed your family, or clothe them, or free a slave. Anyone without the means to do so should fast three days. That is the expiation for breaking oaths when you have sworn them. Keep your oaths. In this way Allah makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be thankful. (5:89)

You who believe! Do not kill game while you are in the state of pilgrimage. If one of you kills any deliberately, the reprisal for it is a livestock animal equivalent to what he killed, as judged by two just men among you, a sacrifice to reach the Kaaba, or expiation by feeding the poor, or fasting commensurate with that, so that he may taste the evil consequences of what he did. Allah has pardoned all that took place in the past; but if anyone does it again Allah will take revenge on him. Allah is Almighty, Exactor of Revenge. (5:95)


EXPIATION FOR BREAKING OATHS

Allah does not take you to task for your inadvertent oaths, but He will take you to task for oaths you make intentionally. The expiation in that case is to feed ten poor people with the average amount you feed your family, or clothe them, or free a slave. Anyone without the means to do so should fast three days. That is the expiation for breaking oaths when you have sworn them. Keep your oaths. In this way Allah makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be thankful. (5:89)


EXTRAVAGANCE

Keep a close check on orphans until they reach a marriageable age, then if you perceive that they have sound judgement hand over their property to them. Do not consume it extravagantly and precipitately before they come of age. Those who are wealthy should abstain from it altogether. Those who are poor should use it sensibly and correctly. When you hand over their property to them ensure that there are witnesses on their behalf. Allah suffices as a Reckoner. (4:6)

Give your relatives their due, and the very poor and travellers but do not squander what you have. Squanderers are brothers to the Satans, and Satan was ungrateful to his Lord. (17:26-27)

(Believers are) those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor mean, but take a stance mid way between the two; (25:67)


EXULTATION

Those who exult in what they have done and love to be praised for what they have not done should not suppose that they have escaped the punishment. They will have a painful punishment. (3:188)

When they forgot what they had been reminded of, We opened up for them the doors to everything, until, when they were exulting in what they had been given, We suddenly seized them and at once they were in despair. (6:44)

The people of the city came, exulting at the news. (15:67)

But they disagreed and split up, dividing into sects, each party exulting in what it had. (23:53)

(Idolaters are) those who split up their religion, and form into sects, each faction exulting in what they have. (30:32)

(The deniers will be told,) 'That is because you exulted on the earth, without any right to do so; and strutted about.' (40:75)

When their Messengers brought them the Clear Signs, they exulted in the knowledge they had and then were engulfed by the very things they mocked. (40:83)

But if they turn away, We have not sent you to be their guardian. You are only responsible for transmission. When We let a man taste mercy from Us he exults in it. But if something bad strikes him for what he has done he is ungrateful. (42:48)

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)


EYE

Allah has sealed up their hearts and hearing and over their eyes is a blindfold. They will have a terrible punishment. (2:7)

And when you said, 'Musa, we will not believe in you until we see Allah with our own eyes.' So the thunder-bolt struck you dead while you were looking. (2:55)

You who believe! Give away some of the good things you have earned and some of what the earth produces for you. Do not have recourse to bad things when you give, things you would only take with your eyes tight shut! Know that Allah is Rich Beyond Need, Praiseworthy. (2:267)

There was a sign for you in the two parties which met face to face, one party fighting in the Way of Allah and the other disbelievers. You saw them as twice their number with your own eyes. Allah reinforces with His help whoever He wills. There is instruction in that for people of insight. (3:13)

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

The People of the Book will ask you to bring down a Book from heaven to them. They asked Musa for even more than that. They said, 'Let us see Allah with our own eyes.' So the lightning-bolt struck them down for their wrongdoing. Then they adopted the Calf after the Clear Signs had come to them, but We pardoned them for that and gave Musa clear authority. (4:153)

We prescribed for them in it: a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and retaliation for wounds. But if anyone forgoes that as a charity, it will act as expiation for him. Those who do not judge by what Allah has sent down, such people are wrongdoers. (5:45)

When they listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they recognise of the truth. They say, 'Our Lord, we believe! So write us down among the witnesses.' (5:83)

Eyesight cannot perceive Him but He perceives eyesight. He is the All-Penetrating, the All-Aware. (6:103)

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)

As for those who deny Our Signs and are arrogant regarding them, the Gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, and they will not enter the Garden until a camel goes through a needle's eye. That is how We repay the evildoers. (7:40)

When they turn their eyes towards the Companions of the Fire, they will say, 'Our Lord, do not place us with the people of the wrongdoers!' (7:47)

He (Musa) said (to the magicians), 'You throw.' And when they threw, they cast a spell on the people's eyes and caused them to feel great fear of them. They produced an extremely powerful magic. (7:116)

We created many of the jinn and mankind for Hell. They have hearts they do not understand with. They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with. Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray! They are the unaware. (7:179)

Do they have legs they can walk with? Do they have hands they can grasp with? Do they have eyes they can see with? Do they have ears they can hear with? Say: 'Call on your partner-gods and try all your wiles against me and grant me no reprieve.' (7:195)

Remember when Allah made you see them as few when you met them, and also made you seem few in their eyes. This was so that Allah could settle a matter whose result was preordained. All matters return to Allah. (8:44)

Nor is anything held against those who, when they came to you for you to provide them with mounts and you said, 'I cannot find anything on which to mount you,' turned away with their eyes overflowing with tears, overcome by grief at having nothing to give. (9:92)

(Nuh said to his people,) 'I do not say to you that I possess the treasuries of Allah; nor do I know the Unseen; nor do I say that I am an angel; nor do I say to those who are vile in your eyes that Allah will not give them any good. Allah knows best what is in their hearts. If I did, I would certainly be one of the wrongdoers.' (11:31)

He (Ya'qub) turned himself away from them and said, 'What anguish is my sorrow for Yusuf!' And then his eyes turned white from hidden grief. (12:84)

Do not consider Allah to be unaware of what the wrongdoers perpetrate. He is merely deferring them to a Day on which their sight will be transfixed, rushing headlong-heads back, eyes vacant, hearts hollow. (14:42-43)

Even if We opened up to them a door into heaven, and they spent the day ascending through it, they would only say, 'Our eyesight is befuddled! Or rather we have been put under a spell!' (15:14-15)

Do not direct your eyes longingly to what We have given certain of them to enjoy. Do not feel sad concerning them. And take the believers under your wing. (15:88)

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)

Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own When guidance came to the people nothing prevented them from believing and asking for forgiveness from their Lord but the fact that the pattern of previous peoples did not happen to them or that the punishment did not appear before their eyes. (18:55)

That Day We will display Hell in its totality to the disbelievers, those whose eyes were blind to My remembrance and whose ears were unable to hear. (18:100-101)

(A voice called out to Maryam,) 'Eat and drink and delight your eyes. If you should see anyone at all, just say, "I have made a vow of abstinence to the All-Merciful and today I will not speak to any human being."' (19:26)

(Allah said to Musa,) 'When your sister went and said, "Shall I direct you to someone who will take care of him?" that was how We returned you to your mother so that she might delight her eyes and not be grieved. You killed a man and We rescued you from trouble and tested you with many trials. You stayed some years among the people of Madyan. Then you arrived at the pre-ordained time, Musa!' (20:40)

Do not direct your eyes longingly to what We have given certain of them to enjoy, the flower of the life of this world, so that We can test them by it. Your Lord's provision is better and longer lasting. (20:131)

Their hearts are distracted. Those who do wrong confer together secretly, saying, 'Is this man anything but a human being like yourselves? Do you succumb to magic with your eyes wide open?' (21:3)

They said, 'Bring him before the people's eyes so they can be witnesses.' (21:61)

And (when) the True Promise is very close, the eyes of those who disbelieved will be transfixed: 'Alas for us! We were unmindful of this! No, rather we were definitely wrongdoers.' (21:97)

Have they not travelled about the earth and do they not have hearts to understand with or ears to hear with? It is not their eyes which are blind but the hearts in their breasts which are blind. (22:46)

Say to the believers that they should lower their eyes and guard their chastity. That is purer for them. Allah is aware of what they do. (24:30)

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 are men who proclaim His glory morning and evening, not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of Allah and the performance of prayer and the giving of the alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil. (24:36-37)

And when Lut he said to his people: 'Do you approach depravity with open eyes? (27:54)

She said to his sister, 'Go after him.' And she kept an eye on him from afar and they were not aware. (28:11)

That is how We returned him to his mother so that she might delight her eyes and feel no grief and so that she would know that Allah's promise is true. But most of them do not know this. (28:13)

When they came at you from above you and below you, when your eyes rolled and your hearts rose to your throats, and you thought unworthy thoughts about Allah. (33:10)

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)

If We wished, We could put out their eyes. Then, though they might race for the path, how would they see? (36:66)

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

There will be dark-eyed maidens with them, with eyes reserved for them alone. (37:48)

They (the profligate) will say, 'How is it that we do not see some men whom we used to count among the worst of people? Did we turn them into figures of fun? Did our eyes disdain to look at them?' (38:62-63)

He knows the eyes' deceit and what people's breasts conceal. (40:19)

If someone shuts his eyes to the remembrance of the All-Merciful, We assign him a Satan who becomes his bosom friend. (43:36)

Platters and cups of gold will be passed around among them and they will have there all that their hearts desire and their eyes find delight in. You will remain in it timelessly, for ever. (43:71)

Have you seen him who takes his whims and desires to be his god-whom Allah has misguided knowingly, sealing up his hearing and his heart and placing a blindfold over his eyes? Who then will guide him after Allah? So will you not pay heed? (45:23)

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

So wait steadfastly for the judgement of your Lord-you are certainly before Our eyes. And glorify and praise your Lord when you get up. (52:48)

His eye did not waver nor did he look away. (53:17)

They will emerge from their graves with downcast eyes, like swarming locusts, necks outstretched, eyes transfixed, rushing headlong to the Summoner. The disbelievers will say, 'This is a pitiless day!' (54:7-8)

They even wanted to seduce his guests! So We put out their eyes: 'Taste My punishment and warnings!' (54:37)

Our command is only one word, like the blinking of an eye. (54:50)

Their eyes will be downcast, darkened by debasement; for they were called on to prostrate when they were in full possession of their faculties. (68:43)

The Day they will emerge swiftly from their graves as if rushing to rally to the flag, eyes downcast, darkened by debasement, that will be the Day which they were promised. (70:43-44)

But when the eyesight is dazzled, (75:7)

And (on that Day) eyes will be cast down. (79:9)

Have We not given him two eyes? (90:8)
