FACTION

Pharaoh exalted himself arrogantly in the land and divided its people into camps, oppressing one group of them by slaughtering their sons and letting their women live. He was one of the corrupters. (28:4)

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

Even a whole army of Confederates will be routed there! (38:11)

And Thamud and the people of Lut and the Companions of the Thicket.Those too were Confederates. (38:13)

The people of Nuh denied the truth before them, and the Confederates after them. Every nation planned to seize its Messenger and used false arguments to rebut the truth. So I seized them, and how was My retribution! (40:5)

The man who believed said, 'My people! I fear for you a day like that of the Confederates. (40:30)

The various factions among them differed. Woe then to those who did wrong on account of the punishment of a painful Day! (43:65)

Satan has gained mastery over them and made them forget the remembrance of Allah. Such people are the party of Satan. No indeed! It is the party of Satan who are the losers. (58:19)

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

We have no idea whether evil is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends them to be rightly guided. (72:11)

Those who were given the Book did not divide into sectsuntil after the Clear Sign came to them. (98:4)


FAINTING

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)


FAITHFUL

He (Hud) said, 'My people, I am by no means a fool, but rather am a Messenger from the Lord of all the worlds, transmitting my Lord's Message to you, and I am a faithful counsellor to you.' (7:67-68)

(Nuh said,) 'I am a faithful Messenger to you.' (26:107)

(Hud said,) 'I am a faithful Messenger to you.' (26:125)

(Salih said,) 'I am a faithful Messenger to you.' (26:143)

(Lut said,) 'I am a faithful Messenger to you.' (26:162)

(Shu'ayb said,) 'I am a faithful Messenger to you.' (26:178)

The Faithful Spirit brought it (the Qur'an) down to your heart so you would be one of the Warners in a clear Arabic tongue. (26:193-195)


FALSE GODS

There is no compulsion where the religion is concerned. Right guidance has become clearly distinct from error. Anyone who rejects false gods and believes in Allah has grasped the Firmest Handhold, which will never give way. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (2:256)

Allah is the Protector of those who believe. He brings them out of the darkness into the light. But those who disbelieve have false gods as protectors. They take them from the light into the darkness. Those are the Companions of the Fire remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (2:257)

Do you not see those who were given a portion of the Book believing in idols and false gods and saying of those who disbelieve, 'These people are better guided on their path than the believers'? (4:51)

Those who believe fight in the Way of Allah. Those who disbelieve fight in the way of false gods. So fight the friends of Satan! Satan's scheming is always feeble. (4:76)

Say: 'Shall I tell you of a reward with Allah far worse than that: that of those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He is angry-turning some of them into monkeys and into pigs-and who worshipped false gods? Such people are in a worse situation and further from the right way.' (5:60)

We sent a Messenger among every people saying: 'Worship Allah and keep clear of all false gods.' Among them were some whom Allah guided but others received the misguidance they deserved. Travel about the earth and see the final fate of the deniers. (16:36)

Those who shun the worship of false gods and turn towards Allah will have good news. So give good news to My servants. (39:17)


FALSE HOPES

They say, 'No one will enter the Garden except for Jews and Christians.' Such is their vain hope. Say, 'Produce your evidence if you are telling the truth.' (2:111)

(Satan said,) '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. (4:119)

He makes promises to them and fills them with false hopes. But what Satan promises them is nothing but delusion. (4:120)

Leave them to eat and enjoy themselves. Let false hope divert them. They will soon know. (15:3)

Those who have turned back in their tracks after the guidance became clear to them, it was Satan who talked them into it and filled them with false hopes. (47:25)

They will call out to them, 'Were we not with you?' They will reply, 'Indeed you were. But you made trouble for yourselves and hung back and doubted and false hopes deluded you until Allah's command arrived. The Deluder deluded you about Allah.' (57:14)


FALSE PROPHETS

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)


FALSEHOOD

Do not mix up truth with falsehood and knowingly hide the truth. (2:42)

People of the Book! Why do you mix truth with falsehood and knowingly conceal the truth? (3:71)

They say, 'These animals and crops are sacrosanct. No one may eat them except those we wish',-as they allege-and animals on whose backs it is forbidden to ride, and animals over which they do not mention Allah's name, inventing falsehood against Him. He will repay them for the things they have invented. (6:138)

As for those who adopted the Calf, anger from their Lord will overtake them together with abasement in the life of this world. That is how we repay the purveyors of falsehood. (7:152)

Or lest you say, 'Our forefathers associated others with Allah before our time, and we are merely descendants coming after them. So are You going to destroy us for what those purveyors of falsehood did?' (7:173)

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

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 has given you wives from among yourselves, and given you children and grandchildren from your wives, and provided good things for you. So why do they believe in falsehood and reject the blessings of Allah, and worship, instead of Allah, things that have no control over their provision from the heavens or earth in any way, and are themselves completely impotent? (16:72-73)

Say: 'Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Falsehood is always bound to vanish.' (17:81)

We only send the Messengers to bring good news and to give warning. Those who disbelieve use fallacious arguments to deny the truth. They make a mockery of My Signs and also of the warning they were given. (18:56)

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

That is because Allah is the Real and what you call on apart from Him is false. Allah is the All-High, the Most Great. (22:62)

Those who disbelieve say, 'This is nothing but a lie he has invented and other people have helped him to do it. They have brought injustice and falsehood.' (25:4)

You never recited any Book before it nor did you write one down with your right hand. If you had, the purveyors of falsehood would have voiced their doubts. (29:48)

Say: 'Allah is a sufficient witness between me and you.' He knows everything in the heavens and the earth. Those who believe in falsehood and reject Allah, they are the losers. (29:52)

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

We have made all kinds of examples for people in this Qur'an. If you bring them a Sign those who disbelieve will say, 'You are just purveyors of falsehood!' (30:58)

That is because Allah-He is the Truth, and what you call upon besides Him is falsehood. Allah is the All-High, the Most Great. (31:30)

Say: 'The Truth has come. Falsehood cannot originate or regenerate.' (34:49)

Is it falsehood-gods besides Allah-that you desire? (37:86)

The people of Nuh denied the truth before them, and the Confederates after them. Every nation planned to seize its Messenger and used false arguments to rebut the truth. So I seized them, and how was My retribution! (40:5)

Falsehood cannot reach it (the Qur'an) from before it or behind it-it is a revelation from One Who is All-Wise, Praiseworthy. (41:42)

Or do they ask, 'Has he invented a lie about Allah?' If Allah willed, He could seal up your heart. By His Words Allah wipes out the false and confirms the truth. He knows what the heart contains. (42:24)

Those who disbelieve say of those who believe, 'If there was any good in it, they would not have beaten us to it.' And since they have not been guided by it, they are bound to say, 'This is an antiquated falsehood.' (46:11)

That is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood whereas those who believe follow the truth from their Lord. In that way Allah makes comparisons for mankind. (47:3)

Do you not see those who have turned to people with whom Allah is angry? They belong neither to you nor to them. And they swear to falsehood and do so knowingly. (58:14)


FAMILY

Perform the pilgrimage and the pious visit for Allah. If you are forcibly prevented, make whatever sacrifice is feasible. But do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached the place of sacrifice. If any of you are ill or have a head injury, the expiation is fasting or charity or sacrifice when you are safe and well again. And if you are secure, then he who takes advantage of a pious visit before the pilgrimage should make whatever sacrifice is feasible. For any one who cannot, there is three days' fast on pilgrimage and seven on your return-that is ten in all. That is for anyone whose family does not live near the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram). Have fear of Allah and know that Allah is fierce in retribution. (2:196)

Their Prophet said to them, 'The sign of his kingship is that the Ark will come to you, containing serenity from your Lord and certain relics left by the families of Musa and Harun. It will be borne by angels. There is a sign for you in that if you are believers.' (2:248)

Allah chose Adam and Nuh and the family of Ibrahim and the family of 'Imran over all other beings. (3:33)

Remember when you left your family early in the day to instal the believers in their battle stations. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (3:121)

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)

A believer should never kill another believer unless it is by mistake. Anyone who kills a believer by mistake should free a believing slave and pay blood-money to his family unless they forgo it as a charity. If he is from a people who are your enemies and is a believer, you should free a believing slave. If he is from a people you have a treaty with, blood money should be paid to his family and you should free a believing slave. Anyone who cannot find the means should fast two consecutive months. This is a concession from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (4:92)

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)

So We rescued him and his family-except for his wife. She was one of those who stayed behind. (7:83)

So when Our command came, and water bubbled up from the earth, We said, 'Load into it a pair of every species, and your family-except for those against whom the Word was preordained-and all who believe.' But those who believed with him were only few. (11:40)

Nuh called out to his Lord and said, 'My Lord, my son is one of my family and Your promise is surely the truth and You are the Justest of Judges.' (11:45)

He said, 'Nuh, he is definitely not of your family. He is someone whose action was not righteous. Do not, therefore, ask Me for something about which you have no knowledge. I admonish you lest you should be among the ignorant.' (11:46)

They said, 'Lut, we are messengers from your Lord. They will not be able to get at you. Set out with your family-except for your wife-in the middle of the night and none of you should look back. What strikes them will strike her as well. Their promised appointment is the morning. Is the morning not close at hand?' (11:81)

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

They raced to the door. She tore his (Yusuf's) shirt at the back. They met her husband by the door. She said, 'How should a man whose intention was to harm your family be punished for what he did except with prison or painful punishment?' (12:25)

He (Yusuf) told his serving men, 'Put back their goods into their saddlebags for them to find when they arrive back to their families so that perhaps they will return again.' (12:62)

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

So when they came into his presence, they said, 'Your Eminence! Hardship has hit us and our families. We bring scant merchandise, but fill the measure for us generously. Allah always rewards a generous giver.' (12:88)

(Yusuf said,) 'Go with this shirt of mine and cast it on my father's face and he will see again. Then come to me with all your families.' (12:93)

They (the Messengers) said, 'We have been sent to a people who are evildoers-with the exception of the family of Lut, all of whom We will save, except for his wife. We have decreed her to be one of those who stay behind.' (15:58-60)

When the Messengers came to the family of Lut, he said, 'You are people we do not know.' (15:61-62)

(The Messengers said,) 'Travel with your family in the dead of night, following behind with them in front of you. None of you must look back. Go where you are ordered to.' (15:65)

(Zakariyya called on his Lord and said,) 'I fear my relatives when I am gone and my wife is barren, so give me an heir from You to be my inheritor and the inheritor of the family of Ya'qub, and make him, my Lord, pleasing to You.' (19:5-6)

When he (Musa) saw a fire and said to his family, 'Wait here. I can make out a fire. Maybe I will bring you a brand from it, or will find guidance there.' (20:10)

(Musa said, 'O Lord,) Assign me a helper from my family,' (20:29)

Instruct your family to perform prayer, and be constant in it. We do not ask you for provision. We provide for you. And the outcome rests on doing your duty. (20:132)

And Nuh, when he called out before and We responded to him and rescued him and his family from the terrible plight. (21:76)

We responded to him (Ayyub) and removed from him the harm which was afflicting him and restored his family to him, and the same again with them, as a mercy direct from Us and a Reminder to all worshippers. (21:84)

We revealed to him (Nuh): 'Build the Ship under Our supervision and as We reveal. When Our command comes and water bubbles up from the earth, load into it a pair of every species, and your family-except for those among them against whom the word has already gone ahead. And do not address Me concerning those who do wrong. They shall be drowned.' (23:27)

Then when the Trumpet is blown, that Day there will be no family ties between them; they will not be able to question one another. (23:101)

(Lut said,) 'My Lord, rescue me and my family from what they are doing.' (26:169)

Therefore We rescued him (Lut) and all his family. (26:170)

When Musa said to his people, 'I can make out a fire. I will bring you news from it or at least a burning brand so that hopefully you will be able to warm yourselves.' (27:7)

There was a group of nine men in the city causing corruption in the land and not putting things right. They said, 'Let us make an oath to one another by Allah that we will fall on him and his family in the night and then say to his protector, "We did not witness the destruction of his family and we are telling the truth."' (27:48-49)

The only response of his people was to say: 'Drive the the family of Lut out of your city! They are people who keep themselves pure!' (27:56)

So We rescued him (Lut) and his family-except for his wife. We ordained her to be one of those who stayed behind. (27:57)

The family of Pharaoh picked him up so that he might be an enemy and a source of grief to them. Certainly Pharaoh and Haman and their troops were in the wrong. (28:8)

When Musa had fulfilled the appointed term and had set off with his family, he noticed a fire from one side of the Mount. He said to his family, 'Stay here, I can see a fire. Hopefully I will bring you back some news from it or a burning branch from the fire so that you will be able to warm yourselves.' (28:29)

He (Ibrahim) said, 'Lut is in it.' They (the Messengers) said, 'We know very well who is in it. We are going to rescue him and his family-except for his wife. She will be one of those who stay behind.' (29:32)

When Our Messengers came to Lut, he was distressed on their account, feeling incapable of protecting them. They said, 'Do not fear and do not grieve. We are going to rescue you and your family-except for your wife; she will be one of those who stay behind.' (29:33)

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)

They will not be able to make a will or return to their families. (36:50)

We rescued him (Nuh) and his family from the terrible plight. (37:76)

'Peace be upon the family of Ilyas!' (37:130)

When We rescued him (Lut) and all his family-except an old woman among those who stayed behind. (37:134-135)

We gave him (Ayyub) back his family and the same again with them as a mercy from Us and a reminder for people of intellect. (38:43)

Those Arabs who remained behind will say to you, 'Our wealth and families kept us occupied, so ask forgiveness for us.' They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts. Say: 'Who can control Allah for you in any way whether He wants harm for you or wants benefit for you?' Allah is aware of what you do. (48:11)

No, you thought that the Messenger and the believers were not going to return to their families, and that seemed pleasing to your hearts and you thought evil thoughts and you were a blighted people. (48:12)

They (believers) will say, 'Beforehand we used to live in fear among our families.' (52:26)

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

(On that 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. (70:10-13)

He neither affirmed the truth nor did he perform prayer, but rather denied the truth and turned away. And then went off to his family, swaggering. (75:31-33)

As for him who is given his Book in his right hand, he will be given an easy reckoning and return to his family joyfully. (84:7-9)

But as for him who is given his Book behind his back, he will cry out for destruction but will be roasted in a Searing Blaze. He used to be joyful in his family. (84:10-13)


FASTING

You who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you-so that hopefully you will guard against evil-for a specified number of days. But any of you who are ill or on a journey should fast a number of other days. For those who can (scarcely) afford it, making up for it means feeding a poor man. And if someone does good of his own accord, it is better for him. But that you should fast is better for you, if you only knew. (2:183-184)

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)

Perform the pilgrimage and the pious visit for Allah. If you are forcibly prevented, make whatever sacrifice is feasible. But do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached the place of sacrifice. If any of you are ill or have a head injury, the expiation is fasting or charity or sacrifice when you are safe and well again. And if you are secure, then he who takes advantage of a pious visit before the pilgrimage should make whatever sacrifice is feasible. For any one who cannot, there is three days' fast on pilgrimage and seven on your return-that is ten in all. That is for anyone whose family does not live near the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram). Have fear of Allah and know that Allah is fierce in retribution. (2:196)

A believer should never kill another believer unless it is by mistake. Anyone who kills a believer by mistake should free a believing slave and pay blood-money to his family unless they forgo it as a charity. If he is from a people who are your enemies and is a believer, you should free a believing slave. If he is from a people you have a treaty with, blood money should be paid to his family and you should free a believing slave. Anyone who cannot find the means should fast two consecutive months. This is a concession from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (4:92)

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)

Men and women who are Muslims, men and women who are believers, men and women who are obedient, men and women who are truthful, men and women who are steadfast, men and women who are humble, men and women who give charity, men and women who fast, men and women who guard their chastity, men and women who remember Allah much: Allah has prepared forgiveness for them and an immense reward. (33:35)

Anyone who cannot find the means must fast for two consecutive months before the two of them may touch one another again. And anyone who is unable to do that must feed sixty poor people. That is to affirm your faith in Allah and His Messenger. These are Allah's limits. The disbelievers will have a painful punishment. (58:4)

It may be that if he does divorce you, his Lord will give him in exchange better wives than you: Muslim women, believing women, obedient women, penitent women, women who worship, women who fast much-previously married women as well as virgins. (66:5)


FAT

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


FATIGUE

They will say, 'Praise be to Allah Who has removed all sadness from us. Truly our Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Ever-Thankful: He Who has lodged us, out of His favour, in the Abode of Permanence where no weariness or fatigue affects us.' (35:34-35)

We created the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, in six days and We were not affected by fatigue. (50:38)


(ALLAH'S) FAVOUR

Then after that you turned away, and were it not for Allah's favour to you and His mercy, you would have been among the lost. (2:64)

What an evil thing they have sold themselves for in rejecting what Allah has sent down, outraged that Allah should send down His favour on whichever of His servants He wills. They have brought down anger upon anger on themselves. The disbelievers will have a humiliating punishment. (2:90)

Those of the People of the Book who disbelieve and the idolaters do not like anything good to be sent down to you from your Lord. But Allah selects for His mercy whomever He wills. Allah's favour is truly vast. (2:105)

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)

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)

Then and there Zakariyya called on his Lord and said, 'O Lord, grant me by Your favour an upright child. You are the Hearer of Prayer.' (3:38)

Do not trust anyone except for those who follow your religion.' Say, 'Allah's guidance is true guidance. But you think it is impossible for anyone to be given the same as you were given, or to argue with you before your Lord.' Say, 'All favour is in Allah's Hand and He gives it to whoever He wills. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing. He picks out for His mercy whoever He wills. Allah's favour is indeed immense.' (3:73-74)

Allah fulfilled His promise to you when you were slaughtering them by His permission. But then you faltered, disputing the command, and disobeyed after He showed you what you love. Among you are those who want this world and among you are those who want the hereafter. Then He turned you from them in order to test you-but He has pardoned you. Allah shows favour to the believers. (3:152)

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, delighting in the favour Allah has bestowed on them, rejoicing over those they left behind who have not yet joined them, feeling no fear and knowing no sorrow, rejoicing in blessings and favour from Allah and that Allah does not let the wage of the believers go to waste. (3:169-171)

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