PAGES

Even if We were to send down a book to you on parchment pages and they were actually to touch it with their own hands, those who disbelieve would still say, 'This is nothing but downright magic.' (6:7)

That Day We will fold up heaven like folding up the pages of a book. As We originated the first creation so We will regenerate it. It is a promise binding on Us. That is what We will do. (21:104)

(The Qur'an is) inscribed on Honoured Pages, (80:13)

When the Pages are opened up. (81:10)


PAIR

There are eight in pairs: A pair of sheep and a pair of goats-Say: 'Is it the two males He has made forbidden, or the two females, or what the wombs of the two females contain? Tell me with knowledge if you are being truthful.' (6:143)

And a pair of camels and a pair of cattle-Say: 'Is it the two males He has made forbidden, or the two females, or what the wombs of the two females contain? Were you then witnesses when Allah gave you this instruction?' Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents lies against Allah thus leading people astray without any knowledge? Allah does not guide the people of the wrongdoers. (6:144)

So when Our command came, and water bubbled up from the earth, We said (to Nuh), '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)

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)

Say: 'I exhort you to do one thing alone: to stand before Allah in pairs and on your own and then reflect. Your companion is not possessed. He is only a warner come to you ahead of a terrible punishment.' (34:46)

Allah created you from dust and then from a drop of sperm and then made you into pairs. No female becomes pregnant or gives birth except with His knowledge. And no living thing lives long or has its life cut short without that being in a Book. That is easy for Allah. (35:11)

Glory be to Him Who created all the pairs: from what the earth produces and from themselves and from things unknown to them. (36:36)

He created you from a single self, then produced its mate from it, and sent down livestock to you-eight kinds in pairs. He creates you stage by stage in your mothers' wombs in a threefold darkness. That is Allah, your Lord. Sovereignty is His. There is no god but Him. So what has made you deviate? (39:6)

And We created all things in pairs so that hopefully you would pay heed. (51:49)

We have created you in pairs. (78:8)


PALACE

(Salih said to his people,) 'Remember when He appointed you successors to 'Ad and settled you in the land. You built palaces on its plains and carved out houses from the mountains. Remember Allah's blessings and do not go about the earth, corrupting it.' (7:74)

How many wrongdoing cities We destroyed, and now all their roofs and walls are fallen in; how many abandoned wells and stuccoed palaces! (22:45)

Blessed be He Who, if He wishes, will grant you better than that: Gardens with rivers flowing under them; and He will grant you Palaces. (25:10)


PALTRY

Believe in what I have sent down, confirming what is with you. Do not be the first to reject it and do not sell My Signs for a paltry price. Have fear of Me alone. (2:41)

Woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say 'This is from Allah' to sell it for a paltry price. Woe to them for what their hands have written! Woe to them for what they earn! (2:79)

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

Allah made a covenant with those given the Book: 'You must make it clear to people and not conceal it.' But they toss it in disdain behind their backs and sell it for a paltry price. What an evil sale they make! (3:187)

Among the people of the Book there are some who believe in Allah and in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down to them, and who are humble before Allah. They do not sell Allah's Signs for a paltry price. Such people will have their reward with their Lord. And Allah is swift at reckoning. (3:199)

We sent down the Torah containing guidance and light, and the Prophets who had submitted themselves gave judgement by it for the Jews-as did their scholars and their rabbis-by what they had been allowed to preserve of Allah's Book to which they were witnesses. Do not be afraid of people, be afraid of Me. And do not sell My Signs for a paltry price. Those who do not judge by what Allah has sent down, such people are disbelievers. (5:44)

They have sold Allah's Signs for a paltry price, and they have barred access to His Way. What they have done is truly evil. (9:9)

Do not sell Allah's contract for a paltry price. What is with Allah is better for you if you only knew. (16:95)


PARADISE (SEE THE GARDEN)


(HIGHEST) PARADISE

Such people will be repaid for their steadfastness with the Highest Paradise, where they will meet with welcome and with 'Peace'. (25:75)


PARTNER

On the Day We gather them all together, We will say to those who associated others with Allah, 'Where are the partner-gods, for whom you made such claims?' (6:22)

His people argued with him. He (Ibrahim) said, 'Are you arguing with me about Allah when He has guided me? I have no fear of any partner you ascribe to Him unless my Lord should will such a thing to happen. My Lord encompasses all things in His knowledge so will you not pay heed? Why should I fear what you have associated with Him when you yourselves apparently have no fear of associating partners with Allah for which He has sent down no authority to you? Which of the two parties is more entitled to feel safe, if you have any knowledge?' (6:80-81)

Say: 'My prayer and my rites, my living and my dying, are for Allah alone, the Lord of all the worlds, Who has no partner. I am commanded to be like that and I am the first of the Muslims.' (6:162-163)

Do they make things into partner-gods which cannot create anything and are themselves created; which are not capable of helping them and cannot even help themselves? (7:191-192)

On the Day We gather them all together, We will say then to those who associated others with Allah, 'To your place, you and your partner-gods!' Then We will sift them out, and their partner-gods will say, 'It was not us you worshipped.' (10:28)

Say: 'Can any of your partner-gods bring creation out of nothing and then regenerate it?' Say: 'Allah brings creation out of nothing and then regenerates it. So how have you been perverted?' Say: 'Can any of your partner-gods guide to the truth?' Say: 'Allah guides to the truth. Who has more right to be followed-He Who guides to the truth, or he who cannot guide unless he is guided? What is the matter with you? How do you reach your judgement?' (10:34-35)

Yes, indeed! Everyone in the heavens and everyone on the earth belongs to Allah. Those who call on something other than Allah are not really following their partner-gods. They are only following conjecture. They are only guessing. (10:66)

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)

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)

When those who associated others with Allah see those they associated, they will say, 'Our Lord, these are our partner gods, the ones we called upon apart from You.' But they will fling their words back in their faces: 'You are truly liars!' (16:86)

And say: 'Praise be to Allah Who has had no son and Who has no partner in His Kingdom and Who needs no one to protect Him from abasement.' And proclaim His Greatness repeatedly! (17:111)

The fruits of his labour were completely destroyed and he woke up wringing his hands in grief, rueing everything that he had spent on it. It was a ruin with all its trellises fallen in. He said, 'Oh, if only I had not associated anyone with my Lord!' (18:42)

On the Day He says, 'Call My partner-gods, those for whom you made such claims,' they will call on them but they will not respond to them. We will place between them an unbridgeable gulf. (18:52)

He to Whom the kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs. He does not have a son and He has no partner in the Kingdom. He created everything and determined it most exactly. (25:2)

They will be told, 'Call on your partner-gods!' They will call on them but they will not respond to them. They will see the punishment. Oh if only they had been guided! (28:64)

None of their partner-gods will intercede for them. They will reject their partner-gods. (30:13)

He has made an example for you from among yourselves. Are any of the slaves you own partners with you in what We have provided for you so that you are equal in respect of it, you fearing them the same as one another? In that way We make Our Signs clear for people who use their intellect. (30:28)

Allah is He Who created you, then provides for you, then will cause you to die and then bring you back to life. Can any of your partner-gods do any of that? Glory be to Him and may He be exalted above anything they associate with Him! (30:40)

Say: 'Have you thought about your partner gods, those you call upon besides Allah? Show me what they have created of the earth; or do they have a partnership in the heavens?' Have We given them a Book whose Clear Signs they follow? No indeed! The wrongdoers promise each other nothing but delusion. (35:40)

On that Day they will be partners in the punishment. (37:33)

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

Say: 'Have you thought about those you call upon apart from Allah? Show me what they have created on the earth. Or do they have a partnership in the heavens? Produce a Book for me before this one or a shred of knowledge if you are telling the truth.' (46:4)

Or do they have Divine partners? Then let them produce their partners if they are telling the truth! (68:41)


PATH OF ALLAH

Guide us on the Straight Path, the Path of those You have blessed. (1:5-6)

Or do you want to question your Messenger as Musa was questioned before? Anyone who exchanges faith for disbelief has definitely gone astray from the level way. (2:108)

The fools among the people will ask, 'What has made them turn round from the direction they used to face?' Say, 'Both East and West belong to Allah. He guides whoever He wills to a straight path.' (2:142)

Fight in the Way of Allah against those who fight you, but do not go beyond the limits. Allah does not love those who go beyond the limits. (2:190)

Spend in the Way of Allah. Do not cast yourselves into destruction. And do good: Allah loves good-doers. (2:195)

They will ask you about the Sacred Month and fighting in it. Say, 'Fighting in it is a serious matter; but barring access to the Way of Allah and rejecting Him and barring access to the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram) and expelling its people from it are far more serious in the sight of Allah. Discord is worse than killing.' They will not stop fighting you until they make you revert from your religion, if they are able. As for any of you who revert from their religion and die disbeliever, their actions will come to nothing in this world and the hereafter. They are the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (2:217)

Those who believe and migrate and strive in the Way of Allah can expect Allah's mercy. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (2:218)

Fight in the Way of Allah. Know that Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (2:244)

What do you think about the council of the tribe of Israel after Musa's time when they said to one of their Prophets, 'Give us a king and we will fight in the Way of Allah!'? He said, 'Is it not possible that if fighting were prescribed for you, you would not fight?' They said, 'How could we not fight in the way of Allah when we have been driven from our homes and children?' But then when fighting was prescribed for them, they turned their backs-except for a few of them. Allah knows the wrongdoers. (2:246)

The metaphor of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah is that of a grain which produces seven ears; in every ear there are a hundred grains. Allah gives such multiplied increase to whoever He wills. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing. (2:261)

Those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, and then do not follow what they have spent by demands for gratitude or insulting words will have their reward with their Lord. They will feel no fear and will know no sorrow. (2:262)

It (the charity) is for the poor who are held back in the Way of Allah, unable to travel in the land. The ignorant consider them rich because of their reticence. You will know them by their mark. They do not ask from people insistently. Whatever good you give away, Allah knows it. (2:273)

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)

('Isa will say,) 'Allah is my Lord and your Lord so worship Him. That is a straight path.' (3:51)

Say, 'People of the Book, why do you bar those who believe from the Way of Allah, seeking in it something crooked, when you yourselves are witnesses to it? Allah is not unaware of what you do.' (3:99)

How can you disbelieve, when Allah's Signs are recited to you and the Messenger is there among you? Whoever holds fast to Allah has been guided to a straight path. (3:101)

Many a Prophet has fought, when there were many thousands with him! They did not give up in the face of what assailed them in the Way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor did they yield. Allah loves the steadfast. (3:146)

If you are killed in the Way of Allah or if you die, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are better than anything you can acquire. (3:157)

And (it is) 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. (3:167)

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

Their Lord responds to them: 'I will not let the deeds of any doer among you go to waste, male or female-you are both the same in that respect. Those who migrated and were driven from their homes and suffered harm in My Way and fought and were killed, I will erase their bad actions from them and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, as a reward from Allah. The best of all rewards is with Allah.' (3:195)

Do you not see those who were given a portion of the Book trading in misguidance and wanting you to be misguided from the way? (4:44)

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)

In that case We would have given them an immense reward from Us and We would have guided them on a straight path. (4:67-68)

So let those who sell the life of this world for the hereafter fight in the Way of Allah. If someone fights in the Way of Allah, whether he is killed or is victorious, We will pay him an immense reward. (4:74)

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)

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)

So fight in the way of Allah-you are only answerable for yourself-and spur on the believers. It may well be that Allah will curb the force of those who disbelieve. Allah has greater force and greater power to punish. (4:84)

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-except for those who seek shelter with people with whom you have a treaty, or who come to you greatly perturbed at the prospect of fighting either you or their own people. If Allah had willed, He could have given them the upper hand over you and then they would have fought you. If they keep away from you and do not fight you and submit to you, Allah has not given you any way against such people. (4:89-90)

You who believe! When you go out to fight in the Way of Allah verify things carefully. Do not say, 'You are not a believer', to someone who greets you as a Muslim, simply out of desire for the goods of this world. With Allah there is booty in abundance. That is the way you were before but Allah has been kind to you. So verify things carefully. Allah is aware of what you do. (4:94)

Those believers who stay behind-other than those forced to by necessity-are not the same as those who strive in the Way of Allah, sacrificing their wealth and themselves. Allah has given those who strive with their wealth and themselves a higher rank than those who stay behind. Allah has promised the Best to both, but Allah has preferred those who strive over those who stay behind by an immense reward. (4:95)

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

But if anyone opposes the Messenger after the guidance has become clear to him, and follows other than the path of the believers, We will hand him over to whatever he has turned to, and We will roast him in Hell. What an evil destination! (4:115)

As for those who believe and then return to disbelief, and then again believe and then return to disbelief, and then increase in disbelief, Allah will not forgive them or guide them on any path. (4:137)

Because of wrongdoing on the part of the Jews, We made forbidden for them some good things which had previously been lawful for them; and because of their obstructing many people from the Way of Allah. (4:160)

Those who disbelieve and bar access to the Way of Allah have gone very far astray. (4:167)

Allah will not forgive those who disbelieve and do wrong or guide them on any path. (4:168)

As for those who believe in Allah and hold fast to Him, He will admit them into mercy and favour from Him and will guide them to Him on a straight path. (4:175)

Allah made a covenant with the tribe of Israel and We raised up twelve leaders from among them. Allah said, 'I am with you. If you perform prayer and give the alms, and believe in My Messengers and respect and support them, and make a generous loan to Allah, I will erase your wrong actions from you and admit you into Gardens with rivers flowing under them. Any of you who disbelieve after that have gone astray from the right way.' (5:12)

By it, Allah guides those who follow what pleases Him to the ways of Peace. He will bring them from the darkness to the light by His permission, and guide them to a straight path. (5:16)

You who believe! Have fear of Allah and seek the means of drawing near to Him, and strive in His Way, so that hopefully you will be successful. (5:35)

You who believe! If any of you renounce your religion, Allah will bring forward a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble to the believers, fierce to the disbelievers, who strive in the Way of Allah and do not fear the blame of any censurer. That is the unbounded favour of Allah which He gives to whoever He wills. Allah is Boundless, All-Knowing. (5:54)

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)

Say: 'People of the Book! Do not go to extremes in your religion, asserting other than the truth, and do not follow the whims and desires of people who were misguided previously and have misguided many others, and are far from the right way.' (5:77)

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

And some of their forebears, descendants and brothers; We chose them and guided them to a straight path. (6:87)

If you obeyed most of those on earth, they would misguide you from Allah's Way. They follow nothing but conjecture. They are only guessing. (6:116)

Your Lord knows best who is misguided from His Way and He knows best those who are guided. (6:117)

This is the path of your Lord-straight. We have made the Signs clear for people who remember. (6:126)

This is My Path and it is straight, so follow it. Do not follow other ways or you will become cut off from His Way. That is what He instructs you to do, so that hopefully you will guard against evil. (6:153)

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)

He (Satan) said, 'By Your misguidance of me, I will lie in ambush for them on your straight path.' (7:16)

(Between them a herald will proclaim: 'May the curse of Allah be on the wrongdoers,) those who bar access to the Way of Allah, seeking in it something crooked, and reject the hereafter.' (7:45)

Do not lie in wait on every pathway, threatening people, barring those who believe from the Way of Allah, seeking in it something crooked. Remember when you were few and He increased your number: see the final fate of the corrupters! (7:86)

We set aside thirty nights for Musa and then completed them with ten, so the appointed time of his Lord was forty nights in all. Musa said to his brother Harun, 'Take my place among my people. Keep order and do not follow the way of the corrupters.' (7:142)

I will divert from My Signs all those who are arrogant in the earth without any right. If they see every Sign, they will not believe in it. If they see the way of right guidance, they will not take it as a way. But if they see the way of error, they will take that as a way. That is because they denied Our Signs and paid no attention to them. (7:146)

Those who disbelieve spend their wealth barring access to the Way of Allah. They will spend it; then they will regret it; then they will be overthrown. Those who disbelieve will be gathered into Hell. (8:36)

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)

Arm yourselves against them with all the firepower and cavalry you can muster, to terrify the enemies of Allah and your enemies, and others besides them whom you do not know. Allah knows them. Anything you spend in the Way of Allah will be repaid to you in full. You will not be wronged. (8:60)

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)

Those who believe and have migrated and strived in the Way of Allah and those who have given refuge and help, they are the true believers. They will have forgiveness and generous provision. (8:74)

They have sold Allah's Signs for a paltry price, and they have barred access to His Way. What they have done is truly evil. (9:9)

Do you make the giving of water to the pilgrims and looking after the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram) the same as believing in Allah and the Last Day and striving in the Way of Allah? They are not equal in the sight of Allah. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people. (9:19)

Those who believe and migrate and strive in the Way of Allah with their wealth and themselves have a higher rank with Allah. They are the ones who are victorious. (9:20)

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)

You who believe! Many of the rabbis and monks devour people's property under false pretences and bar people from access to the Way of Allah. As for those who hoard up gold and silver and do not spend it in the Way of Allah, give them the news of a painful punishment. (9:34)

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

Go out to fight, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and yourselves in the Way of Allah. That is better for you if you only knew. (9:41)

The alms are for: the poor, the destitute, those who collect it, reconciling people's hearts, freeing slaves, those in debt, spending in the Way of Allah, and travellers. It is a legal obligation from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (9:60)

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

Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their wealth in return for the Garden. They fight in the Way of Allah and they kill and are killed. It is a promise binding on Him in the Torah, the Gospel and the Qur'an and who is truer to his contract than Allah? Rejoice then in the bargain you have made. That is the great victory. (9:111)

It was not for people of Madina, and the desert arabs around them, to remain behind the Messenger of Allah nor to prefer themselves to him. That is because no thirst or weariness or hunger will afflict them in the Way of Allah, nor will they take a single step to infuriate the disbelievers, nor secure any gain from the enemy, without a right action being written down for them because of it. Allah does not let the wage of the good-doers go to waste. (9:120)

Allah calls to the Abode of Peace and He guides whom He wills to a straight path. (10:25)

Musa said, 'Our Lord, You have given Pharaoh and his ruling circle finery and wealth in the life of this world, Our Lord, so that they may be misguided from Your Way. Our Lord, obliterate their wealth and harden their hearts so that they do not believe until they see the painful punishment.' He said, 'Your request is answered, so go straight and do not follow the way of those who have no knowledge.' (10:88-89)

(Wrongdoers are) those who bar access to the way of Allah seeking in it something crooked and reject the hereafter. (11:19)

(Hud said,) 'I have put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature He does not hold by the forelock. My Lord is on a Straight Path.' (11:56)

Say: 'This is my way. I call to Allah with inner sight, I and all who follow me. Glory be to Allah! I am not one of the idolaters!' (12:108)

Alif Lam Ra. This is a Book We have sent down to you so that you can bring mankind from the darkness to the light, by the permission of their Lord, to the Path of the Almighty, the Praiseworthy. (14:1)

Those who prefer the life of this world to the hereafter, and bar access to the way of Allah, seeking in it something crooked; they are greatly misguided. (14:3)

(Their Messengers said,) 'And why indeed should we not put our trust in Allah when He has guided us to our ways? We will be steadfast however much you harm us. Those who trust put their trust in Allah.' (14:12)

They have made others equal to Allah to misguide people from His Way. Say: 'Enjoy yourselves! Your destination is the Fire!' (14:30)

He said, 'This is a Straight Path to Me.' (15:41)

The Way should lead to Allah, but there are those who deviate from it. If He had wished He could have guided every one of you. (16:9)

Allah makes another metaphor: two men, one of them deaf and dumb, unable to do anything, a burden on his master, no matter where he directs him he brings no good, is he the same as someone who commands justice and is on a straight path? (16:76)

As for those who disbelieved and barred access to the way of Allah, We will heap punishment on top of their punishment because of the corruption they brought about. (16:88)

Say: 'Each man acts according to his nature, but your Lord knows best who is best guided on the Path.' (17:84)

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)

Say: 'Everyone is waiting expectantly so wait expectantly. You will soon know who are the Companions of the Right Path and who is is guided.' (20:135)

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

(22:25)

And (it is) so that those who have been given knowledge will know it is the truth from their Lord and believe in it and their hearts will be humbled to Him. Allah guides those who believe to a straight path. (22:54)

But those who do not believe in the hereafter recoil from the path. (23:74)

Those of you possessing affluence and ample wealth should not make oaths that they will not give to their relatives and the very poor and those who have migrated in the way of Allah. They should rather pardon and overlook. Would you not love Allah to forgive you? Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (24:22)

We have sent down Signs making things clear. Allah guides whoever He wills to a straight path. (24:46)

On the Day We gather them together, and those they worship besides Allah, and say, 'Did you misguide these servants of Mine or did they stray from the way of their own accord?' (25:17)

The Day when a wrongdoer will bite his hands and say, 'Alas for me! If only I had gone the way of the Messenger!' (25:27)

Those who are herded headlong into Hell, such people are in the worst position. They are the most misguided from the way. (25:34)

(The hoopoe said,) '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.' (27:24)

When turned his face in the direction of Madyan, he (Musa) said, 'Hopefully my Lord will guide me to the right way.' (28:22)

And 'Ad and Thamud-it must be clear to you from their dwelling places! Satan made their actions seem good to them and so debarred them from the Way, even though they were intelligent people. (29:38)

But there are some people who trade in distracting tales to misguide people from Allah's Way knowing nothing about it and to make a mockery of it. Such people will have a humiliating punishment. (31:6)

(We have instructed man concerning his parents:) 'But if they try to make you associate something with Me about which you have no knowledge, do not obey them. Keep company with them correctly and courteously in this world but follow the Way of him who turns to Me. Then you will return to Me and I will inform you about the things you did.' (31:15)

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

And they will say, 'Our Lord, we obeyed our masters and great men and they misguided us from the Way.' (33:67)

And (litigants) came in on Dawud who was alarmed by them. They said, 'Do not be afraid. We are two litigants, one of whom has acted unjustly towards the other, so judge between us with truth and do not be unjust and guide us to the Right Path.' (38:22)

(We said), 'Dawud! We have made you a successor on the earth, so judge between people with truth and do not follow your own desires, letting them misguide you from the Way of Allah. Those who are misguided from the Way of Allah will receive a harsh punishment because they forgot the Day of Reckoning.' (38:26)

When harm touches man he calls upon his Lord, repenting to Him.

Say: 'Enjoy your disbelief for a little while. You are among the Companions of the Fire.' (39:8)

Those who bear the Throne, and all those around it, glorify their Lord with praise and believe in Him and ask forgiveness for those who believe: 'Our Lord, You encompass everything in mercy and knowledge!

(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)

Pharaoh said, 'Haman, build me a tower so that perhaps I may gain means of access, access to the heavens, so that I can look on Musa's God. Truly I think he is a liar.' That is how Pharaoh's evil actions were made attractive to him and he debarred others from the Path. Pharaoh's scheming led to nothing but ruin. (40:36-37)

The man who believed said, 'My people! Follow me and I will guide you to the path of rectitude.' (40:38)

Accordingly We have revealed to you a Spirit by Our command. You had no idea of what the Book was, nor faith. Nonetheless We have made it a Light by which We guide those of Our servants We will.

As for those who disbelieve and bar others from the Way of Allah, Allah will make their actions go astray. (47:1)

Therefore when you meet those who disbelieve strike their necks. Then when you have decimated them, tie their bonds tightly and set them free or ransom them, until the war is finally over. That is how it is to be. If Allah willed, He could avenge Himself on them. But it is so that He can test some of you by means of others. As for those who fight in the Way of Allah, He will not let their actions go astray. (47:4)

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)

Those who disbelieve and obstruct the Way of Allah, and then die disbelievers, Allah will not forgive them. (47:34)

Here you are then: people who are called upon to spend in the Way of Allah and then some of you are tight-fisted! But whoever is tight-fisted is only tight-fisted to himself. Allah is Rich and you are poor. If you turn away, He will replace you with a people other than yourselves and they will not be like you. (47:38)

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. (48:1-2)

Allah has promised you much booty which you will take, and has hastened this for you and held people's hands back from you, so that it might be a Sign to the believers, and so that He might guide you to a straight path. (48:20)

Know that the Messenger of Allah is among you. If he were to obey you in many things, you would suffer for it. However, Allah has given you love of faith and made it pleasing to your hearts, and has made disbelief, deviance and disobedience hateful to you. People such as these are rightly guided. (49:7)

The believers are only those who have believed in Allah and His Messenger and then have had no doubt and have strived with their wealth and themselves in the Way of Allah. They are the ones who are true to their word. (49:15)

That is as far as their knowledge extends. Your Lord knows best those who are misguided from His Way and He knows best those who are guided. (53:30)

And how is it with you that you do not give in the Way of Allah, when the inheritance of the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah? Those of you who gave and fought before the Victory are not the same as those who gave and fought afterwards. They are higher in rank. But to each of them Allah has promised the Best. Allah is aware of what you do. (57:10)

They made their oaths into a cloak and barred the Way of Allah, so they will have a humiliating punishment. (58:16)

You who believe! Do not take My enemy and your enemy as friends, showing love for them when they have rejected the truth that has come to you, driving out the Messenger and yourselves simply because you believe in Allah your Lord. If you go out to strive in My Way and seeking My pleasure, keeping secret the love you have for them, I know best what you conceal and what you make known. Any of you who do that have strayed from the right way. (60:1)

Allah loves those who fight in His Way in ranks like well-built walls. (61:4)

It (the transaction which will save you from a painful punishment) is to believe in Allah and His Messenger and strive in the Way of Allah with your wealth and your selves. That is better for you if you only knew. (61:11)

They have made their oaths into a cloak and barred the Way of Allah. What they have done is truly evil. (63:2)

Then when they have reached the end of their waiting period either retain them with correctness and courtesy or part from them with correctness and courtesy. Call two upright men from among yourselves as witnesses and they should carry out the witnessing for Allah. This is admonishment for all who believe in Allah and the Last Day. Whoever has fear of Allah-He will give him a way out. (65:2)

Who is better guided: he who goes grovelling on his face or he who walks upright on a straight path? (67:22)

Your Lord knows best who is misguided from His Way and He knows best those who are guided. (68:7)

If only they were to go straight on the Path, We would give them abundant water to drink. (72:16)

This truly is a reminder, so let anyone who wills take the Way towards his Lord. (73:19)

Your Lord knows that you stay up nearly two-thirds of the night-or half of it, or a third of it-and a group of those with you. Allah determines the night and day. He knows you will not keep count of it, so He has turned towards you. Recite as much of the Qur'an as is easy for you. He knows that some of you are ill and that others are travelling in the land seeking Allah's bounty, and that others are fighting in the Way of Allah. So recite as much of it as is easy for you. And perform prayer and give the alms and lend a generous loan to Allah. Whatever good you send ahead for yourselves you will find it with Allah as something better and as a greater reward. And seek forgiveness from Allah. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (73:20)

We guided him on the Way, whether he is thankful or unthankful. (76:3)

This truly is a Reminder, so whoever wills should take the Way towards his Lord. (76:29)

Then He eases the way for him. (80:20)


PATIENCE

Therefore be patient with a patience which is beautiful. (70:5)

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

If any of you do not have the means to marry free women who are believers, you may marry slavegirls who are believers. Allah knows best about your faith; you are all the same in that respect. Marry them with their owners' permission and give them their dowries correctly and courteously as married women, not in fornication or taking them as lovers. When they are married, if they commit fornication they should receive half the punishment of free women. This is for those of you who are afraid of committing fornication. But being patient is better for you. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (4:25)

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)

If you want to retaliate, retaliate to the same degree as the injury done to you. But if you are patient, it is better to be patient. (16:126)

Be patient. But your patience is only by Allah. Do not be grieved by them and do not be constricted by the plots they hatch. (16:127)

Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own whims and desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds. (18:28)

(He said to Musa,) 'How indeed could you bear with patience something you have not encompassed in your knowledge?' (18:68)

Musa said, 'You will find me patient, if Allah wills, and I will not disobey you in any matter.' (18:69)

If they had only been patient until you came out to them, it would have been better for them. But Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (49:5)

So be patient in the face of what they say and glorify your Lord with praise before the rising of the sun and before it sets. (50:39)

(The Day they are shoved roughly into the Fire of Hell, they will be told,) 'Roast in it! And bear it patiently or do not bear it patiently. It makes no difference either way. You are simply being repaid for what you did.' (52:16)


PATTERN (SUNNAH)

Say to those who disbelieve that if they stop, they will be forgiven what is past; but if they return to it, they have the pattern of previous peoples in the past. (8:38)

That was the pattern with those We sent before you as Our Messengers. You will not find any changing of Our pattern. (17:77)

When guidance came to the people nothing prevented them from believing and asking for forgiveness from their Lord but the fact that the pattern of previous peoples did not happen to them or that the punishment did not appear before their eyes. (18:55)

There is no restriction on the Prophet regarding anything Allah allots to him. This was Allah's pattern with those who passed away before-and Allah's command is a pre-ordained decree. (33:38)

This is Allah's pattern with those who passed away before. You will not find any alteration in Allah's pattern. (33:62)

They swore by Allah with their most earnest oaths that if a warner came to them they would be better guided than any other community. But then when a warner did come to them, it only increased their aversion, shown by their arrogance in the land and evil plotting. But evil plotting envelops only those who do it. Do they expect anything but the pattern of previous peoples? You will not find any changing in the pattern of Allah. You will not find any alteration in the pattern of Allah. (35:42-43)

But when they saw Our violent force their faith was of no use to them. That is the pattern Allah has always followed with His servants. Then and there the disbelievers were lost. (40:85)

That is Allah's pattern which has passed away before. You will not find any changing in the pattern of Allah. (48:23)


PAYMENT

As for those who desire the life of this world and its finery, We will give them full payment in it for their actions. They will not be deprived here of their due. (11:15)

Are you asking them for payment? Your Lord's payment is better. He is the Best of Providers. (23:72)


PEACE

They will have the Abode of Peace with their Lord. He is their Protector because of what they have done. (6:127)

If they (enemies) incline to peace, you too incline to it, and put your trust in Allah. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. (8:61)

Allah calls to the Abode of Peace and He guides whom He wills to a straight path. (10:25)

Do not become faint-hearted and call for peace when you are uppermost and Allah is with you-He would never cheat you of your deeds. (47:35)

If two parties of the believers fight, make peace between them. But if one of them attacks the other unjustly, fight the attackers until they revert to Allah's command. If they revert, make peace between them with justice, and be even-handed. Allah loves those who are even-handed. (49:9)

The believers are brothers, so make peace between your brothers and have fear of Allah so that hopefully you will gain mercy. (49:10)

(Those who guarded against evil will be told,) 'Enter it in peace. This is the Day of Timeless Eternity.' (50:34)
