NAKEDNESS

You will not go hungry in it or suffer from nakedness. (20:118)

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

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


NAME

He taught Adam the names of all things. Then He arrayed them before the angels and said, 'Tell me the names of these if you are telling the truth.' (2:31)

He said, 'Adam, tell them their names.' When he had told them their names, He said, 'Did I not tell you that I know the Unseen of the heavens and the earth, and I know what you make known and what you hide?' (2:33)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who bars access to the mosques of Allah, preventing His name from being remembered in them, and goes about destroying them? Such people will never be able to enter them-except in fear. They will have disgrace in this world and in the hereafter they will have a terrible punishment. (2:114)

When she gave birth, she said, 'My Lord! I have given birth to a girl'-and Allah knew very well what she had given birth to, male and female are not the same-'and I have named her Maryam and placed her and her children in Your safekeeping from the accursed Satan.' (3:36)

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)

O mankind! Have fear of your Lord Who created you from a single self and created its mate from it and then disseminated many men and women from the two of them. Have fear of Allah in whose name you make demands on one another and also in respect of your families. Allah watches over you continually. (4:1)

They will ask you what is lawful for them. Say: 'All good things are lawful for you, and also what is caught for you by hunting animals which you have trained as Allah has taught you. Eat what they catch for you, mentioning Allah's name over it.' And have fear of Allah. Allah is swift at reckoning. (5:4)

Eat that over which the name of Allah has been mentioned, if you believe in His Signs. (6:118)

What is the matter with you that you do not eat that over which the name of Allah has been mentioned, when He has made clear to you what He has made forbidden for you except when you are forced to eat it? Many people lead others astray through their whims and desires without having any knowledge. Your Lord knows best those who overstep the limits. (6:119)

Do not eat anything over which the name of Allah has not been mentioned. To do so is sheer deviance. The Satans inspire their friends to dispute with you. If you obeyed them you would then be idolaters. (6:121)

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)

He (Hud) said, 'Punishment and anger have come down on you from your Lord. Do you argue with me regarding names which you and your forefathers invented and for which Allah has sent down no authority? Wait, then; I am waiting with you.' (7:71)

To Allah belong the Most Beautiful Names, so call on Him by them and abandon those who desecrate His Names. They will be repaid for what they did. (7:180)

He (Nuh) said, 'Embark in it. In the name of Allah be its voyage and its landing! Truly my Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.' (11:41)

What you serve apart from Him are only names which you and your forefathers have made up There is no mandate for them from Allah. Allah alone is qualified to judge. His order is to worship none but Him. That is in truth the straight and upright religion, but most of mankind simply do not know. (12:40)

What then of Him Who is standing over every self seeing everything it does? Yet still they associate others with Allah! Say: 'Name them! Or would you inform Him of something in the earth He does not know, or are they words which are simply guesswork on your part?' However, the plotting of those who disbelieve seems good to them and they bar the way. Anyone misguided by Allah has no guide. (13:33)

Say: 'Call on Allah or call on the All-Merciful, whichever you call upon, the Most Beautiful Names are His.' Do not be too loud in your prayer or too quiet in it, but try to find a way between the two. (17:110)

(His Lord said,) 'Zakariyya! We give you the good news of a boy named Yahya, a name we have given to no one else before.' (19:7)

He is Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything in between them, so worship Him and persevere in His worship. Do you know of any other with His Name? (19:65)

Allah, there is no god but Him. The Most Beautiful Names are His. (20:8)

Announce the Pilgrimage to mankind. They will come to you on foot and on every sort of lean animal, coming by every distant road so that they can be present at what will profit them and invoke Allah's name on specific days over livestock He has provided for them. Eat of them and feed those who are poor and in need. (22:27-28)

We have appointed a rite of sacrifice for every nation so that they may invoke Allah's name over the livestock He has given them. Your God is One God so submit to Him. Give good news to the humble-hearted. (22:34)

We have appointed the sacrificial animals for you as one of the sacred rites of Allah. There is good in them for you, so invoke Allah's name over them, as they stand in rows. And then when they collapse on their sides, eat of them and feed both those who ask and those who are too shy to ask. In this way We have subjected them to you so that hopefully you will be thankful. (22:36)

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)

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)

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)

You who believe! People should not ridicule others who may be better than themselves; nor should any women ridicule other women who may be better than themselves. And do not find fault with one another or insult each other with derogatory nicknames. How evil it is to have a name for evil conduct after coming to faith! Those people who do not turn from it are wrongdoers. (49:11)

They (the idols) are nothing but names which you yourselves have given, you and your forefathers. Allah has sent down no authority for them. They are following nothing but conjecture and what their own selves desire. And that when guidance has reached them from their Lord! (53:23)

Those who do not believe in the hereafter give the angels female names. (53:27)

Blessed be the name of your Lord, Master of Majesty and Generosity. (55:78)

So glorify the name of your Lord, the Magnificent! (56:74)

So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Magnificent! (56:96)

He is Allah-the Creator, the Maker, the Giver of Form. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Everything in the heavens and earth glorifies Him. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise. (59:24)

And when 'Isa son of Maryam said, 'Tribe of Israel, I am the Messenger of Allah to you, confirming the Torah which came before me and giving you the good news of a Messenger after me whose name is Ahmad.' When he brought them the Clear Signs, they said, 'This is downright magic.' (61:6)

Glorify then the name of your Lord, the Magnificent. (69:52)

Remember the Name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him completely. (73:8)

Remember the Name of your Lord in the morning and the evening. (76:25)

Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most High. (87:1)

He who invokes the Name of his Lord and prays. (87:15)

Recite: In the Name of your Lord Who created. (96:1)


NAMES OF ALLAH

(Allah is) the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful. (1:2)

They say, 'Allah has a son.' Glory be to Him! No, everything in the heavens and earth belongs to Him. Everything is obedient to Him, the Originator of the heavens and earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, 'Be!' and it is. (2:116-117)

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)

Your God is One God. There is no god but Him, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful. (2:163)

And among the people there are some who give up everything, desiring the good pleasure of Allah. Allah is Ever-Gentle with His servants. (2: 207)

Divorced women should wait by themselves for three menstrual cycles; and it is not lawful for them to conceal what Allah has created in their wombs if they believe in Allah and the Last Day. Their husbands have the right to take them back within that time, if they desire to be reconciled. Women possess rights similar to those held over them to be honoured with fairness; but men have a degree above them. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (2:228)

Allah, there is no god but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep. Everything in the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. Who can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them but they cannot grasp any of His knowledge save what He wills. His Footstool encompasses the heavens and the earth and their preservation does not tire Him. He is the Most High, the Magnificent. (2:255)

Allah, there is no god but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. (3:2)

Allah bears witness that there is no god but Him, as do the angels and the people of knowledge, upholding justice. There is no god but Him, the Almighty, the All-Wise. (3:18)

Allah chose Adam and Nuh and the family of Ibrahim and the family of 'Imran over all other beings-descendants one of the other. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (3:33-34)

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

If anyone desires the reward of this world, the reward of both this world and hereafter is with Allah. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (4:134)

(Isa said,) 'If You punish them, they are Your servants. If you forgive them, You are the Almighty, the All-Wise.' (5:118)

Your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then settled Himself firmly on the Throne. He covers the day with the night, each pursuing the other urgently; and the sun and moon and stars are subservient to His command. Both creation and command belong to Him. Blessed be Allah, the Lord of all the worlds. (7:54)

Allah only did this to give you good news and that so your hearts would be at rest. Victory comes from no one but Allah. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (8:10)

And (He turned) 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. (9:118)

That is Allah, your Lord, the Truth, and what is there after truth except misguidance? So how have you been distracted? (10:32)

Then when Our command came We rescued Salih and those who believed along with him by a mercy from Us from the disgrace of that day. Your Lord is the All-Strong, the Almighty. (11:66)

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)

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

Do not imagine that Allah will break His promise to His Messengers. Allah is Almighty, Exactor of Revenge. (14:47)

It is We Who give life and cause to die and We are the Inheritor. (15: 23)

Your Lord expands the provision of anyone He wills and restricts it. He is aware of and sees His servants. (17:30)

Glory be to Him! He is exalted above what they say in Greatness and Sublimity! (Qur'an, 17:43)

Say: 'Call on Allah or call on the All-Merciful, whichever you call upon, the Most Beautiful Names are His.' Do not be too loud in your prayer or too quiet in it, but try to find a way between the two. (17:110)

Faces will be humbled to the Living, the All-Sustaining and anyone weighed down with wrongdoing will have failed. (20:111)

Everything in the heavens and everything in the earth belongs to Him. Allah is the Rich Beyond Need, the Praiseworthy. (22:64)

Exalted be Allah, the King, the Real. There is no god but Him, Lord of the Noble Throne. (23:116)

Put your trust in the Living Who does not die and glorify Him with praise. He is well aware of the wrong actions of His servants. (25:58)

He who possessed knowledge of the Book said, 'I will bring it to you before your glance returns to you.' And when he saw it standing firmly in his presence, he said, 'This is part of my Lord's favour to test me to see if I will give thanks or show ingratitude. Whoever gives thanks only does so to his own gain. Whoever is ungrateful, my Lord is Rich Beyond Need, Generous.' (27:40)

Your Lord creates and chooses whatever He wills. The choice is not theirs. Glory be to Allah! He is exalted above anything they associate with Him! (28:68)

Everything in the heavens and earth belongs to Allah. Allah is the Rich Beyond Need, the Praiseworthy. (31:26)

That is the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible, the Almighty, the Most Merciful. (32:6)

And remember the Signs of Allah and the wise words which are recited in your rooms. Allah is All-Pervading, All-Aware. (33:34)

He had no authority over them except to enable Us to know those who believe in the hereafter from those who are in doubt about it. Your Lord is the Preserver of all things. (34: 21)

Say: 'Our Lord will bring us all together and then will judge between us with the truth. He is the Just Decider, the All-Knowing.' (34:26)

Say: 'Show me those you have joined to Him as associates. No indeed! He is Allah, the Almighty, the All-Wise.' (34:27)

Mankind! You are the poor in need of Allah whereas Allah is the Rich Beyond Need, the Praiseworthy. (35:15)

Allah keeps a firm hold on the heavens and earth, preventing them from vanishing away. And if they vanished no one could then keep hold of them. Certainly He is Most Forbearing, Ever-Forgiving. (35:41)

Allah is the Creator of everything and He is Guardian over everything. (39: 62)

He is the Living-there is no god but Him-so call on Him, making your religion sincerely His. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds. (40: 65)

It is He Who sends down abundant rain, after they have lost all hope, and unfolds His mercy. He is the Protector, the Praiseworthy. (42:28)

The legions of the heavens and the earth belong to Allah. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (48:7)

(Has he not been informed) that it is He Who brings about both laughter and tears; that it is He Who brings about both death and life; that He created the two sexes-male and female? (53:43-45)

Everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise. The kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. He gives life and causes to die. He has power over all things. He is the First and the Last, the Outward and the Inward. He has knowledge of all things. (57:1-3)

(Allah does not love) those who are tight-fisted and tell others to be tight-fisted. If anyone turns away, Allah is the Rich Beyond Need, the Praiseworthy. (57:24)

He is Allah-there is no god but Him. He is the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible. He is the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful. (59:22)

He is Allah-there is no god but Him. He is the King, the Most Pure, the Perfect Peace, the Trustworthy, the Safeguarder, the Almighty, the Compeller, the Supremely Great. Glory be to Allah above all they associate with Him. (59:23)

He is Allah-the Creator, the Maker, the Giver of Form. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Everything in the heavens and earth glorifies Him. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise. (59:24)

There is an excellent example in them for you to follow, that is for those whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day. But if anyone turns away, Allah is the Rich Beyond Need, the Praiseworthy. (60:6)

That is because their Messengers brought them the Clear Signs but they said, 'Are human beings going to guide us?' So they disbelieved and turned away. But Allah is completely independent of them. Allah is Rich Beyond Need, Praiseworthy. (64:6)

If you make a generous loan to Allah He will multiply it for you and forgive you. Allah is All-Thankful, Most Forbearing. The Knower of the Unseen and the Visible, the Almighty, the All-Wise. (64:17-18)

(He is) the Possessor of the Throne, the All-Glorious. (85:15)

Say: 'He is Allah, Absolute Oneness, Allah, the Everlasting Sustainer of all. He has not given birth and was not born. And no one is comparable to Him.' (112: 1-4)


NASR

They have hatched a mighty plot saying, "Do not abandon your gods. Do not abandon Wadd or Suwa' or Yaghuth or Ya'uq or Nasr." (71:22-23)


NATION

You are the best nation ever to be produced before mankind. You enjoin the right, forbid the wrong and believe in Allah. If the People of the Book were to believe, it would be better for them. Some of them are believers but most of them are deviators. (3:110)

How will it be when We bring a witness from every nation and bring you as a witness against them? (4:41)

We sent Messengers to nations before you, and afflicted those nations with hardship and distress so that hopefully they would humble themselves. (6:42)

Do not curse those they call upon besides Allah, in case that makes them curse Allah in animosity, without knowledge. In this way We make the actions of every nation seem attractive to them. Then they will return to their Lord, and He will inform them about what they did. (6:108)

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

He will say, 'Enter the Fire together with the nations of jinn and men who have passed away before you.' Each time a nation enters, it will curse its sister nation, until, when they are all gathered together in it, the last of them will say to the first, 'Our Lord, those are the ones who misguided us, so give them a double punishment in the Fire.' He will say, 'Each will receive double. But you do not know it.' (7:38)

Every nation has a Messenger and when their Messenger comes everything is decided between them justly. They are not wronged. (10:47)

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)

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

In the same way We have sent you among a nation before which other nations passed away, to recite to them what We have revealed to you. Yet they still reject the All-Merciful. Say: 'He is my Lord; there is no god but Him. I put my trust in Him and I turn to Him.' (13:30)

No nation can advance its appointed time nor can they delay it. (15:5)

On the Day We raise up a witness from every nation, those who disbelieved will not be excused nor will they be able to appease Allah. (16:84)

This nation of yours is one nation and I am your Lord, so worship Me. (21:92)

We have appointed a rite of sacrifice for every nation so that they may invoke Allah's name over the livestock He has given them. Your God is One God so submit to Him. Give good news to the humble-hearted. (22:34)

We have appointed for every nation a rite that they observe, so let them not dispute with you about the matter. Call the people to your Lord. You are guided straight. (22:67)

No nation can advance its appointed time nor can they delay it. (23:43)

We will drag out a witness from each nation and will say, 'Produce your evidence!' They will know then that the truth is with Allah and that what they invented has forsaken them. (28:75)

And if you deny it, nations before you also denied the truth. The Messenger is only responsible for clear transmission. (29:18)

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)

We have assigned close comrades to them who have made what is before them and behind them seem good to them. And the statement about the nations, both of jinn and men, who passed away before them has proved true of them as well. Certainly they were lost. (41:25)

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 see every nation on its knees, every nation summoned to its Book: 'Today you will be repaid for what you did.' (45:28)

Those are people of whom the statement about the nations, both of jinn and men, who passed away before them, has also proved true; truly they were the lost. (46:18)


ALLAH'S NATURAL PATTERN (FITRAH)

So set your face firmly towards the Religion, as a pure natural believer, Allah's natural pattern on which He made mankind. There is no changing Allah's creation. That is the true Religion-but most people do not know it. (30:30)


NATURAL PURE BELIEF

They say, 'Be Jews or Christians and you will be guided.' Say, 'Rather adopt the religion of Ibrahim, a man of natural pure belief. He was not one of the idolaters.' (2:135)

Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian but a man of pure natural belief-a Muslim. He was not one of the idolaters. (3:67)

Say, 'Allah speaks the truth, so follow the religion of Ibrahim, a man of pure natural belief. He was not one of the idolaters.' (3:95)

Who could have a better religion than someone who submits himself completely to Allah and is a good-doer, and follows the religion of Ibrahim, a man of pure natural belief? Allah took Ibrahim as an intimate friend. (4:125)

(Ibrahim said,) 'I have turned my face to Him Who brought the heavens and earth into being, a pure natural believer. I am not one of the idolaters.' (6:79)

Say: 'My Lord has guided me to a straight path, a well-founded religion, the religion of Ibrahim, a man of pure natural belief. He was not one of the idolaters.' (6:161)

Turn your face towards the religion in pure natural faith, and on no account be among the idolaters. (10:105)

Ibrahim was a community in himself, exemplary, obedient to Allah, a man of pure natural belief. He was not one of the idolaters. (16:120)

Then We revealed to you: 'Follow the religion of Ibrahim, a man of pure natural belief. He was not one of the idolaters.' (16:123)

Be people of pure natural belief in Allah, not associating anything else with Him. As for anyone who associates others with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from the sky and the birds had seized him and carried him away or the wind had dropped him in a distant place. (22:31)

So set your face firmly towards the Religion, as a pure natural believer, Allah's natural pattern on which He made mankind. There is no changing Allah's creation. That is the true Religion-but most people do not know it. (30:30)

They were only ordered to worship Allah, making their religion sincerely His as people of pure natural belief, and to perform prayer and give the alms-that is the religion of the correct. (98:5)


NEARNESS OF ALLAH TO PEOPLE

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)

If My servants ask you about Me, I am near. I answer the call of the caller when he calls on Me. They should therefore respond to Me and believe in Me so that hopefully they will be rightly guided. (2:186)

What is in the heavens and in the earth belongs to Allah. Allah encompasses all things. (4:126)

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

Do not be like those who left their homes in arrogance, showing off to people and barring them from the way of Allah-Allah encompasses what they do. (8:47)

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

Why then, when death reaches his throat and you are at that moment looking on-and We are nearer him than you but you cannot see. (56:83-85)

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


NEIGHBOUR

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