HELP

Seek help in steadfastness and prayer. But that is a very hard thing, except for the humble. (2:45)

Have fear of a Day when no self will be able to compensate for another in any way. No intercession will be accepted from it, no ransom taken from it, and they will not be helped. (2:48)

Those are the people who trade the hereafter for this world. The punishment will not be lightened for them. They will not be helped. (2:86)

Do you not know that Allah is He to Whom the kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs and that, besides Allah, you have no protector and no helper? (2:107)

The Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their religion. Say, 'Allah's guidance is the true guidance.' If you were to follow their whims and desires, after the knowledge that has come to you, you would find no protector or helper against Allah. (2:120)

Have fear of a Day when no self will be able to compensate for another in any way, and no ransom will be accepted from it, and no intercession benefit it, and they will not be helped. (2:123)

You who believe! Seek help in steadfastness and prayer. Allah is with the steadfast. (2:153)

Or did you suppose that you would enter the Garden without facing the same as those who came before you? Poverty and illness afflicted them and they were shaken to the point that the Messenger and those who believed with him said, 'When is Allah's help coming?' Be assured that Allah's help is very near. (2:214)

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)

Whatever amount you spend or vow you make, Allah knows it. The wrongdoers have no helpers. (2:270)

Allah does not impose on any self any more than it can stand. For it is what it has earned; against it, what it has brought upon itself. 'Our Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make a mistake! Our Lord, do not place on us a load like the one You placed on those before us! Our Lord, do not place on us a load we have not the strength to bear! And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy on us. You are our Master, so help us against the people of the disbelievers.' (2:286)

As for those who disbelieve, their wealth and children will not help them against Allah in any way. They are fuel for the Fire. (3:10)

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)

They are the ones whose actions come to nothing in this world or the hereafter. They will have no helpers. (3:22)

When 'Isa sensed disbelief on their part, he said, 'Who will be my helpers to Allah?' The disciples said, 'We are Allah's helpers. We believe in Allah. Bear witness that we are Muslims.' (3:52)

Remember when Allah made a covenant with the Prophets: 'Now that We have given you a share of the Book and Wisdom, and then a messenger comes to you confirming what is with you, you must believe in him and help him.' He asked, 'Do you agree and undertake my commission on that condition?' They replied, 'We agree.' He said, 'Bear witness, then. I am with you as one of the witnesses.' (3:81)

As for those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers, the whole earth filled with gold would not be accepted from any of them if they were to offer it as a ransom. They will have a painful punishment. They will have no helpers. (3:91)

They will not harm you except with abusive words. If they fight you, they will turn their backs on you. Then they will not be helped. (3:111)

Allah helped you at Badr when you were weak so have fear of Allah, so that hopefully you will be thankful. (3:123)

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)

If Allah helps you, no one can vanquish you. If He forsakes you, who can help you after that? So the believers should put their trust in Allah. (3:160)

What assailed you on the day the two armies met was by Allah's permission, so that He would know the believers, and so that He would know the hypocrites. They were told, 'Come and fight in the Way of Allah or at least help defend us.' They said, 'If we knew how to fight, we would certainly follow you.' They were closer to disbelief that day than to faith, saying with their mouths what was not in their hearts. And Allah knows best what they are hiding. (3:166-167)

(People with intelligence remember Allah:) 'Our Lord, those You cast into the Fire, You have indeed disgraced. The wrongdoers will have no helpers.' (3:192)

Allah knows best who your enemies are. Allah suffices as a Protector; Allah suffices as a Helper. (4:45)

Those are the ones Allah has cursed. And if someone is cursed by Allah you will not find any one to help him. (4:52)

What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah-for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, 'Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!'? (4:75)

They would like you to disbelieve as they disbelieve so that you will all be the same. Do not take any of them as friends until they have migrated in the Way of Allah. But if they run away then seize them and kill them wherever you find them. Do not take any of them as either a friend or helper. (4:89)

It is not a matter of wishful thinking on your part nor of the wishful thinking of the People of the Book. Anyone who does evil will be repaid for it. He will not find any protector or helper besides Allah. (4:123)

The hypocrites are in the lowest level of the Fire. You will not find any one to help them. (4:145)

As for those who believe and do right actions, He will pay them their wages in full and will give them increase from His favour. As for those who show disdain and grow arrogant, He will punish them with a painful punishment. They will not find any protector or helper for themselves besides Allah. (4:173)

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)

O Messenger! Do not be grieved by those who rush headlong into disbelief among those who say 'We believe' with their tongues when their hearts contain no faith. And among the Jews are those who listen to lies, listening to other people who have not come to you, distorting words from their proper meanings, saying, 'If you are given this, then take it. If you are not given it, then beware!' If Allah desires misguidance for someone, you cannot help him against Allah in any way. Those are the people whose hearts Allah does not want to purify. They will have disgrace in this world and in the hereafter they will have a terrible punishment. (5:41)

Those who say that the Messiah, son of Maryam, is Allah are disbelievers. The Messiah said, 'Tribe of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. If anyone associates anything with Allah, Allah has forbidden him the Garden and his refuge will be the Fire.' The wrongdoers will have no helpers. (5:72)

Messengers before you were also denied but they were steadfast in the face of the denial and injury they suffered until Our help arrived. There is no changing the Words of Allah. And news of other Messengers has come to you. (6:34)

Say: 'Are we to call on something besides Allah which can neither help nor harm us, and to turn on our heels after Allah has guided us, like someone the Satans have lured away in the earth, leaving him confused and stupefied, despite the fact that he has companions calling him to guidance, saying, "Come with us!"?' Say: 'Allah's guidance, that is true guidance. We are commanded to submit as Muslims to the Lord of all the worlds.' (6:71)

Musa said to his people, 'Seek help in Allah and be steadfast. The earth belongs to Allah. He bequeathes it to any of His servants He wills. The successful outcome is for those who guard against evil.' (7:128)

(Allah said, 'I will prescribe My mercy for) those who follow the Messenger, the Ummi, whom they find written down with them in the Torah and the Gospel, commanding them to do right and forbidding them to do wrong, making good things lawful for them and bad things forbidden for them, relieving them of their heavy loads and the chains which were around them. Those who believe in him and honour him and help him, and follow the Light that has been sent down with him, they are the ones who are successful.' (7:157)

Say: 'I possess no power to help or harm myself, except as Allah wills. If I had had knowledge of the Unseen, I would have sought to gain much good and no evil would have touched me. I am only a warner and a bringer of good news to people who believe.' (7:188)

Those you call on besides Him are not capable of helping you. They cannot even help themselves. (7:197)

Remember when you called on your Lord for help and He responded to you: 'I will reinforce you with a thousand angels riding rank after rank.' (8:9)

If it was a decisive victory you were seeking, that victory has clearly been won. If you desist, it will be better for you; but if you return, We also will return. Your troops will not help you at all, however many they are. Allah is with the believers. (8:19)

But if they turn away, know that Allah is your Master, the Best of Masters, and the Best of Helpers! (8:40)

If they intend to deceive you, Allah is enough for you. It is He Who supported you with His help and with the believers. (8:62)

Those who believe and have migrated and strived with their wealth and themselves in the Way of Allah, and those who have given refuge and help, they are the friends and protectors of one another. But as for those who believe but have not migrated, you are not in any way responsible for their protection until they migrate. But if they ask you for help in respect of the religion, it is your duty to help them, except against people you have a treaty with. Allah sees what you do. (8:72)

Fight them! Allah will punish them at your hands, and disgrace them and help you against them, and heal the hearts of those who believe. (9:14)

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. (9:25)

If you do not help him, Allah did help him when those who disbelieved drove him out and there were two of them in the Cave. He said to his companion, 'Do not be despondent, Allah is with us.' Then Allah sent down His serenity upon him and reinforced him with troops you could not see. He made the word of those who disbelieved undermost. It is the word of Allah which is uppermost. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (9:40)

They swear by Allah that they said nothing, but they definitely spoke the word of disbelief and returned to disbelief after their Islam. They planned something which they did not achieve and they were vindictive for no other cause than that Allah and His Messenger had enriched them from His bounty. If they were to repent, it would be better for them. But if they turn away, Allah will punish them with a painful punishment in this world and the hereafter, and they will not find any protector or helper on the earth. (9:74)

Allah is He to Whom the kingdom of the heavens and earth belongs. He gives life and causes to die. You have no protector or helper besides Allah. (9:116)

Say: 'I possess no power to harm or help myself except as Allah wills. Every nation has an appointed time. When their appointed time comes, they cannot delay it a single hour or bring it forward.' (10:49)

(Say:) 'Do not call on something besides Allah which can neither help nor harm you. If you do, you will then be wrongdoers.' (10:106)

(Nuh said,) 'My people! Who would help me against Allah if I did drive them away? So will you not pay heed?' (11:30)

He (Salih) said, 'My people! What do you think? If I were to possess a Clear Sign from my Lord and He had given me mercy from Him: who would help me against Allah if I disobeyed Him? You would not increase me in anything but loss.' (11:63)

We did not wrong them; rather they wronged themselves. The gods they called upon besides Allah did not help them at all when Allah's command came upon them. They did nothing but increase their ruin. (11:101)

Do not rely on those who do wrong thus causing the Fire to afflict you, for you have no protector besides Allah; then you will not be helped. (11:113)

They then produced his shirt with false blood on it. He (Yusuf's father) said, 'It is merely that your lower selves have suggested something to you which you did; but beauty lies in showing steadfastness. It is Allah alone Who is my Help in face of the event that you describe.' (12:18)

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)

Say: 'Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?' Say: 'Allah.' Say: 'So why have you taken protectors apart from Him who possess no power to help or harm themselves?' Say: 'Are the blind and seeing equal? Or are darkness and light the same? Or have they assigned partners to Allah who create as He creates, so that all creating seems the same to them?' Say: 'Allah is the Creator of everything. He is the One, the All-Conquering.' (13:16)

They will all parade before Allah and the weak will say to those who were arrogant, 'We followed you, so can you help us at all against the punishment of Allah?' They will say, 'If Allah had guided us, we would have guided you. It makes no difference whether we cannot stand it or bear it patiently. We have no way of escape.' (14:21)

However eager you are for them to be guided, Allah will not guide those whom He misguides. They will have no helpers. (16:37)

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

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)

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)

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

There was no group to come to his aid, besides Allah, and he was not given any help. (18:43)

He (Dhu'l-Qarnayn) said, 'The power my Lord has granted me is better than that. Just give me a strong helping hand and I will build a solid barrier between you and them.' (18:95)

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

If those who disbelieve only knew of the time when they will not be able to keep the Fire away from their faces or their backs! And they will receive no help! (21:39)

Or do they have gods besides Us who will protect them? They cannot even help themselves! They will not be safe from Us. (21:43)

He (Ibrahim) said, 'Do you then worship, instead of Allah, what cannot help or harm you in any way?' (21:66)

We helped him against the people who rejected Our Signs. They were an evil people and We drowned them, every one. (21:77)

Say: 'Lord, judge with truth! Our Lord is the All-Merciful, the One whose help is sought in the face of what you describe.' (21:112)

Instead of Allah, he calls on something which cannot harm him or help him. That is extreme misguidance. (22:12)

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)

They worship besides Allah something for which no authority has come down, something about which they have no knowledge. There is no helper for the wrongdoers. (22:71)

Strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in the religion-the religion of your forefather Ibrahim. He named you Muslims before and also in this, so that the Messenger could be witness against you and you could be witnesses against all mankind. So perform prayer and give the alms and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protector-the Best Protector, the Best Helper. (22:78)

He (Nuh) said, 'My Lord, help me because of their calling me a liar!' (23:26)

But then when We seize the affluent among them with the punishment, they will suddenly start praying fervently. 'Do not pray fervently today. You will not get any help from Us.' (23:64-65)

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)

So now they have disowned you for what you said, and they cannot avert it or give you any help. As for anyone among you who has done wrong, We will make him suffer great punishment. (25:19)

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)

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

Yet they worship instead of Allah what can neither help nor harm them. The disbeliever is ever, against his Lord, an assistant (to Satan). (25:55)

He (Ibrahim) said, 'Do they (the idols) hear you when you call or do they help you or do you harm?' (26:72-73)

They will be asked, 'Where are those you used to worship besides Allah? Can they help you or even help themselves?' (26:92-93)

Morning found him in the city, fearful and on his guard. Then suddenly the man who had sought his help the day before, shouted for help from him again. Musa said to him, 'You are clearly a misguided man.' (28:18)

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

We caused the earth to swallow up both him and his house. There was no group to come to his aid, besides Allah, and he was not someone who is helped. (28:81)

There are some people who say, 'We believe in Allah,' and then, when they suffer harm in Allah's cause, they take people's persecution for Allah's punishment; but if help comes from your Lord they say, 'We were with you.' Does Allah not know best what is in every person's heart? (29:10)

(Say:) 'There is no way out for you in earth or heaven. You have no protector or helper besides Allah.' (29:22)

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)

He (Lut) said, 'My Lord, help me against the people of corruption!' (29:30)

The Romans have been defeated in the land nearby, but after their defeat they will themselves be victorious in a few years' time. The affair is Allah's from beginning to end. On that day, the believers will rejoice in Allah's help. He grants victory to whoever He wills. He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful. (30:2-5)

However, those who do wrong pursue their whims and desires without any knowledge. Who can guide those whom Allah has led astray? They will have no helpers. (30:29)

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 that Day the excuses of those who did wrong will not help them nor will they be able to appease Allah. (30:57)

Say: 'Who is going to shield you from Allah if He desires evil for you or desires mercy for you?' They will find no one to protect or help them besides Allah. (33:17)

(A Searing Blaze) where they will remain timelessly, for ever and ever, not finding any protector or any helper. (33:65)

'Today you possess no power to help or harm one another.' And We will say to those who did wrong, 'Taste the punishment of the Fire which you denied.' (34:42)

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

They will shout out in it, 'Our Lord! Take us out! We will act rightly, differently from the way we used to act!' Did We not let you live long enough for anyone who was going to pay heed to pay heed? And did not the warner come to you? Taste it then! There is no helper for the wrongdoers. (35:37)

(The man from the far side of the city said,) 'Am I to take as gods instead of Him those whose intercession, if the All-Merciful desires harm for me, will not help me at all and cannot save me?' (36:23)

They have taken gods besides Allah so that perhaps they may be helped. (36:74)

They cannot help them even though they are an army mobilised in their support. (36:75)

Our Word was given before to Our servants, the Messengers, that they would certainly be helped. (37:171-172)

Turn to your Lord and submit to Him before punishment comes upon you, for then you cannot be helped. (39:54)

(A man among Pharaoh's people who believed, but kept his faith concealed, said,) 'My people! The kingdom is yours today, as masters in the land, but who will help us against Allah's violent force, if it comes upon us?' Pharaoh said, 'I only show you what I see myself and I only guide you to the path of rectitude.' (40:29)

We will certainly help Our Messengers and those who believe both in the life of this world and on the Day the witnesses appear, the Day when the excuses of the wrongdoers will not help them. The curse will be on them and they will have the most evil Home. (40:51-52)

So We sent a howling wind against them on disastrous ill-fated days to make them taste the punishment of degradation in this world. And the punishment of the hereafter is even more degrading. And they will not be helped. (41:16)

If Allah had willed, He would have made them a single nation. But He admits whoever He wills into His mercy and the wrongdoers have no protector and no helper. (42:8)

You will not be able to thwart Him on the earth and you have no protector or helper besides Allah. (42:31)

They have no one to protect or help them apart from Allah. There is no way out for anyone Allah misguides. (42:46)

The Day when friends will be of no use at all to one another, and they will not be helped. (44:41)

They will not help you in any way against Allah. The wrongdoers are protectors of one another but Allah is the Protector of those who guard against evil. (45:19)

They will be told, 'Today We have forgotten you as you forgot the meeting of this your Day. Your refuge is the Fire and you have no helpers.' (45:34)

Or do they say, 'He has invented it'? Say: 'If I have invented it, then you possess no power to help me against Allah in any way. He knows best what you hold forth about. He is witness enough between me and you. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.' (46:8)

But what of him who says to his parents, 'Fie on you! Do you promise me that I will be resurrected when generations before me have passed away?' They both call on Allah for help: 'Woe to you! Believe! Allah's promise is true.' But he says, 'This is nothing but the myths of previous peoples.' (46:17)

You who believe! If you help Allah, He will help you and make your feet firm. (47:7)

How many cities We have destroyed, greater in strength than your city which has driven you out, and there was no one to help them. (47:13)

Truly We have granted you a clear victory, so that Allah may forgive you your earlier errors and any later ones and complete His blessing upon you, and guide you on a Straight Path and so that Allah may help you with a mighty help. (48:1-3)

If those who disbelieve should fight you, they would turn their backs and then find no one to protect or help them. (48:22)

They (Thamud) could not stand upright and they were not helped. (51:45)

The Day their ploys will not profit them at all and they will not be helped. (52:46)

He (Nuh) called upon his Lord: 'I am overwhelmed, so help me!' (54:10)

He will pursue you with a piercing flame and fiery smoke, and you will not be helped. (55:35)

We sent Our Messengers with the Clear Signs and sent down the Book and the Balance with them so that mankind might establish justice. And We sent down iron in which there lies great force and which has many uses for mankind, so that Allah might know those who help Him and His Messengers in the Unseen. Allah is All-Strong, Almighty. (57:25)

Neither their wealth nor their children will help them at all against Allah. Such people are the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (58:17)

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

If they are driven out they will not leave with them. If they are fought against they will not help them. And if they did help them they would turn their backs, and then they would not be helped. (59:12)

You have an excellent example in Ibrahim and those with him, when they said to their people, 'We wash our hands of you and all that you worship apart from Allah, and we reject you. Between us and you there will be enmity and hatred for ever unless and until you believe in Allah alone.' Except for Ibrahim's words to his father: 'I will ask forgiveness for you but I have no power to help you in any way against Allah.' 'Our Lord, we have put our trust in You and have repented to You. You are our final destination.' (60:4)

You who believe! Be helpers of Allah as 'Isa son of Maryam said to the Disciples, 'Who will be my helpers to Allah?' The Disciples said, 'We will be the helpers of Allah.' One faction of the tribe of Israel believed and the other disbelieved. So We supported those who believed against their enemy and they became victorious. (61:14)

Allah has made an example for those who disbelieve: the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut. They were married to two of Our servants who were righteous but they betrayed them and were not helped at all against Allah. They were told, 'Enter the Fire along with all who enter it.' (66:10)

Because of their errors they were drowned and put into the Fire. They found no one to help them besides Allah. (71:25)

The intercession of the interceders will not help them. (74:48)

It is the Day when a self will have no power to help any other self in any way. The command that Day will be Allah's alone. (82:19)

And (that Day) man will have no strength or helper. (86:10)

And that Day Hell is produced, that Day man will remember; but how will the remembrance help him? (89:23)

His wealth will not help him when he plummets to the depths. (92:11)

So woe to those who perform prayer, and are forgetful of their prayer, those who show off and deny help to others. (107:4-7)

When Allah's help and victory have arrived and you have seen people entering Allah's religion in droves, then glorify your Lord's praise and ask His forgiveness. He is the Ever-Returning. (110:1-3)

His (Abu Lahab's) wealth has not helped him nor anything he has earned. (111:2)


HERB

He laid out the earth for all living creatures. In it are fruits and date-palms with covered spathes, and grains on leafy stems and fragrant herbs. (55:10-12)

Then We make grain grow in it, and grapes and herbs. (80:27-28)


HERITAGE (SEE LAWS OF HERITAGE)


AL-HIJR (SEE PEOPLE OF AL-HIJR)


HIJRA (SEE MIGRATION)


HIKMAH (SEE WISDOM - WISE)


HILL

The metaphor of those who spend their wealth, desiring the pleasure of Allah and firmness for themselves, is that of a garden on a hillside. When heavy rain falls on it, it doubles its produce; and if heavy rain does not fall, there is dew. Allah sees what you do. (2:265)

(Hud said to his people,) 'Do you build a tower on every hilltop, just to amuse yourselves?' (26:128)


HOLY

(Musa said,) 'My people! Enter the Holy Land which Allah has ordained for you. Do not turn back in your tracks and so become transformed into losers.' (5:21)

(Allah said to Musa,) 'I am your Lord. Take off your sandals. You are in the holy valley of Tuwa.' (20:12)

Has the story of Musa reached you: when his Lord called out to him in the holy valley of Tuwa? (79:15-16)


HOMOSEXUALITY

And Lut, when he said to his people, 'Do you commit an obscenity not perpetrated before you by anyone in all the worlds? (7:80)

(Lut said to his people,) 'You come with lust to men instead of women. You are indeed a depraved people.' (Qur'an, 7:81)

The only answer of his people was to say, 'Expel them from your city! They are people who keep themselves pure!' (Qur'an, 7:82)

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?' (Qur'an, 11:78)

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

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

He (Lut) said, 'These are my guests so do not put me to shame.' (15:68)

(Lut said,) 'Have fear of Allah and do not dishonour me.' (15:69)

They said, 'Did we not forbid you to play host to anyone at all?' (15:70)

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

By your life! They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness! (15:72)

(Lut said to his people,) 'Of all beings, do you lie with males. (26:165)

'Leaving the wives Allah has created for you? You are a people who have overstepped the limits.' (26:166)

They said, 'Lut, if you do not desist you will be expelled.' (26:167)

He said, 'I am someone who detests the deed you perpetrate. (26:168)

(Lut said to his people,) 'Do you come with lust to men instead of women? You are a people who are deeply ignorant.' (27:55)

Do you lie with men and waylay them on the road and commit depravities within your gatherings?' the only answer of his people was to say, 'Bring us Allah's punishment if you are telling the truth.' (29:29)


HONEY

Your Lord revealed to the bees: 'Build dwellings in the mountains and the trees, and also in the structures which men erect. Then eat from every kind of fruit and travel the paths of your Lord, which have been made easy for you to follow.' From inside them comes a drink of varying colours, containing healing for mankind. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who reflect. (16:68-69)

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


HOOF

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)

By the charging horses panting hard, striking sparks from their flashing hooves, (100:1-2)


HOOPOE

He (Sulayman) inspected the birds and said, 'How is it that I do not see the hoopoe? Or is it absent without leave? I will certainly punish it most severely or slaughter it if it does not bring me clear authority.' (27:20-21)

However, it was not long delayed, and then it said, 'I have comprehended something you have not and bring you accurate intelligence from Sheba. I found a woman ruling over them who has been given everything. She possesses a mighty throne. I found both her and her people prostrating to the sun instead of Allah. Satan has made their actions seem good to them and debarred them from the Way so they are not guided and do not prostrate to Allah, Who brings out what is hidden in the heavens and the earth, and knows what you conceal and what you divulge. Allah-there is no god but Him-the Lord of the Mighty Throne.' (27:22-26)

(Sulayman said,) 'Take this letter of mine and deliver it to them and then withdraw from them a little and see how they respond.' (27:28)


HORIZON

It is nothing but Revelation revealed, taught him by one immensely strong, possessing power and splendour. He stood there stationary-there on the highest horizon. (53:4-7)

He saw him on the clear horizon. (81:23)


HORSE

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)

And horses, mules and donkeys both to ride and for adornment. And He creates other things you do not know. (16:8)

When swift horses, champing at the bit, were displayed before him in the afternoon, he (Sulayman) said, 'Truly do I love the love of good, with a view to the glory of my Lord until the sun disappeared behind its veil. Return them to me!' And he set about slashing through their shanks and necks. (38:31-33)

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

By the charging horses panting hard, striking sparks from their flashing hooves, raiding at full gallop in the early dawn, leaving a trailing dust-cloud in their wake, cleaving through the middle of the foe, truly man is ungrateful to his Lord and indeed he bears witness to that. (100:1-7)


HOSPITALITY

But those who have fear of their Lord will have Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever: hospitality from Allah. What is with Allah is better for those who are truly good. (3:198)

(Say:) 'Then you, you misguided, you deniers will eat from the tree of Zaqqum, filling your stomachs with it and drink scalding water on top of it, slurping like thirst-crazed camels. This will be their hospitality on the Day of Judgment!' (56:51-56)

And if he is one of the misguided deniers, there is hospitality of scalding water. (56:92-93)

And if he is one of the misguided deniers, there is hospitality of scalding water. (56:92-93)


HOSTILITY

If their faith is the same as yours then they are guided. But if they turn away, they are entrenched in hostility. Allah will be enough for you against them. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. (2:137)

That is because Allah has sent down the Book with truth and those who differ from the Book are entrenched in hostility. (2:176)

Among the people there is someone whose words about the life of this world excite your admiration, and he calls Allah to witness what is in his heart, while he is in fact the most hostile of adversaries. (2:204)

You will find that the people most hostile to those who believe are the Jews and the idolaters. You will find the people most affectionate to those who believe are those who say, 'We are Christians.' That is because some of them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant. (5:82)

This was because they (the disbelievers) were hostile to Allah and His Messenger. If anyone is hostile to Allah and His Messenger, Allah is severe in retribution. (8:13)

Will you not fight a people who have broken their oaths and resolved to expel the Messenger, and who initiated hostilities against you in the first place? Is it them you fear? Allah has more right to your fear if you are believers. (9:13)

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)

We have made it easy on your tongue so that you can give good news to those who guard against evil and warn stubbornly hostile people by it. (19:97)

We did not send any Messenger or any Prophet before you without Satan insinuating something into his recitation while he was reciting. But Allah revokes whatever Satan insinuates and then Allah confirms His Signs-Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise-so that He can make what Satan insinuates a trial for those with sickness in their hearts and for those whose hearts are hard-the wrongdoers are entrenched in hostility. (22:52-53)

But those who disbelieve are full of vainglory and entrenched in hostility. (38:2)

Say: 'What do you think? If it is from Allah and you reject it, who could be more misguided than someone entrenched in hostility to it?' (41:52)

Those who disbelieve and obstruct the Way of Allah and are entrenched in hostility towards the Messenger after the guidance has become clear to them, do not harm Allah in any way and He makes their actions come to nothing. (47:32)

That is because they (those who disbelieved among the People of the Book) were entrenched in hostility towards Allah and His Messenger. If anyone is hostile towards Allah, Allah is Severe in Retribution. (59:4)

They (the hypocrites) will not fight against you all together as a group except in fortified towns or behind high walls.Their hostility towards each other is intense. They are full of bravado in each other's company. You consider them united but their hearts are scattered wide. That is because they are people who do not use their intellect. (59:14)


HOUR

Every nation has an appointed time. When their time comes, they cannot delay it a single hour or bring it forward. (7:34)

On the day We gather them together-when it will seem if they had tarried no more than an hour of a single day-they will recognise one another. Those who denied the meeting with Allah will have lost. They were not guided. (10:45)

Say: 'I possess no power to harm or help myself except as Allah wills. Every nation has an appointed time. When their appointed time comes, they cannot delay it a single hour or bring it forward.' (10:49)

If Allah were to punish people for their wrong actions, not a single creature would be left upon the earth, but He defers them till a predetermined time. When their specified time arrives, they cannot delay it for a single hour nor can they bring it forward. (16:61)

What of him who spends the night hours in prayer, prostrating and standing up, mindful of the hereafter, hoping for the mercy of his Lord? Say: 'Are they the same-those who know and those who do not know?' It is only people of intelligence who pay heed. (39:9)

So be steadfast as the Messengers with firm resolve were also steadfast. And do not seek to hasten it for them. On the Day they see what they were promised, it will be as if they had only tarried for just one hour of a single day. It has been transmitted! Will any be destroyed except for deviant people? (46:35)


HOUR, THE (SEE THE DAY OF RISING)


HOUSE

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

And when Ibrahim built the foundations of the House with Isma'il: 'Our Lord, accept this from us! You are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.' (2:127)

Safa and Marwa are among the Landmarks of Allah, so anyone who goes on pilgrimage to the House or does the pious visit incurs no wrong in going back and forth between them. If anyone spontaneously does good, Allah is All-Thankful, All-Knowing. (2:158)

They will ask you about the crescent moons. Say, 'They are set times for mankind and for the pilgrimage.' It is not devoutness for you to enter houses by the back. Rather devoutness is possessed by those who guard against evil. So come to houses by their doors and have fear of Allah, so that hopefully you will be successful. (2:189)

The first House established for mankind was that at Bakka, a place of blessing and a guidance for all beings. In it are Clear Signs-the place where Ibrahim stood (to pray). All who enter it are safe. Pilgrimage to the House is a duty owed to Allah by all mankind-those who can find a way to do it. But if anyone disbelieves, Allah is Rich Beyond Need of any being. (3:96-97)

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)

Allah has made the Kaaba, the Sacred House, a special institution for mankind, and also the sacred months and the sacrificial animals and the ritual garlands. That is so you will know that Allah knows what is in the heavens and in the earth and that Allah has knowledge of all things. (5:97)

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)

Their prayer at the House is nothing but whistling and clapping. So taste the punishment because you disbelieved! (8:35)

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

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

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

(Ibrahim said,) 'Our Lord! I have settled some of my offspring by Your Sacred House in an uncultivated valley. Our Lord! Let them perform prayer! Make the hearts of mankind incline towards them and provide them with fruits, so that hopefully they will be thankful.' (14:37)

Allah has made your houses places of rest for you and made houses for you out of cattle hides which are light for you to carry both when you are travelling and when you are staying in one place. And from their wool and fur and hair you obtain clothing and carpets and household utensils for a time. (16:80)

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

(We revealed to Ibrahim:) 'Then they should end their state of self-neglect and fulfil their vows and circle the Ancient House.' (22:29)

You can make use of the sacrificial animals until a specified time, and then their place of sacrifice is by the Ancient House. (22:33)

You who believe! Do not enter houses other than your own until you have asked permission and greeted their inhabitants. That is better for you, so that hopefully you will pay heed. (24:27)

There is nothing wrong in your entering houses where no one lives and where there is some service for you. Allah knows what you divulge and what you conceal. (24:29)

In houses which Allah has permitted to be built and in which His name is remembered, there are men who proclaim His glory morning and evening. (24:36)

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

These are the ruins of their houses because of the wrong they did. There is certainly a Sign in that for people with knowledge. (27:52)

How many cities We have destroyed which lived in insolent ingratitude! There are their houses, never again inhabited after them, except a little. It was We Who were their Heir. (28:58)

The metaphor of those who take protectors besides Allah is that of a spider which builds itself a house; but no house is flimsier than a spider's house, if they only knew. (29:41)

And a group of them said, 'People of Yathrib, Your position is untenable so return!' some of them asked the Prophet to excuse them, saying, 'Our houses are exposed,' when they were not exposed; it was merely that they wanted to run away. (33:13)

He bequeathed their land, their houses and their wealth to you, and another land you had not yet trodden on. Allah has power over all things. (33:27)

Remain in your houses and do not display your beauty as it was previously displayed in the Time of Ignorance. Perform prayer and give the alms and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah desires to remove all impurity from you, People of the House, and to purify you completely. (33:33)

(I swear) by the Visited House. (52:4)

Allah has made an example for those who believe: the wife of Pharaoh when she said, 'My Lord, build a house in the Garden for me in Your presence and rescue me from Pharaoh and his deeds and rescue me from this wrongdoing people.' (66:11)

So let them worship the Lord of this House. (106:3)
