REMEMBRANCE OF MESSENGERS

Be steadfast in the face of what they say and remember Our servant Dawud, who possessed true strength. He truly turned to his Lord. (38:17)

And remember Our servants Ibrahim, Ishaq and Ya'qub, men of true strength and inner sight. (38:45)

Remember Our servants Isma'il, Al-Yasa' and Dhu'l-Kifl; each of them was among the best of men. (38:48)


REMINDER (DHIKR)

That is what We recite to you of the Signs and the wise Reminder. (3:58)

They are the ones Allah has guided, so be guided by their guidance. Say, 'I do not ask you for any wage for it. It is simply a reminder to all beings.' (6:90)

(Nuh said,) 'Or are you astonished that a reminder should come to you from your Lord by way of a man among you, to warn you and make you guard against evil so that hopefully you will gain mercy?' (7:63)

You do not ask them for any wage for it. It is only a reminder to all beings. (12:104)

It is We Who have sent down the Reminder and We Who will preserve it. (15:9)

We have only ever sent before you men who were given Revelation-ask the People of the Reminder if you do not know-who brought Clear Signs and Revealed Books. And We have sent down the Reminder to you so that you can make clear to mankind what has been sent down to them so that hopefully they will reflect. (16:43-44)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who is reminded of the Signs of his Lord and then turns away from them, forgetting all that he has done before? We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it, and heaviness in their ears. Though you call them to guidance, they will nonetheless never be guided. (18:57)

We did not send down the Qur'an to you to make you miserable, but only as a reminder for those who have fear. (20:2-3)

In this way We give you news of what has gone before and We have given you a reminder direct from Us. (20:99)

(He said,) 'But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one and on the Day of Rising We will gather him blind.' (20:124)

We have only ever sent before you men who were given Revelation. Ask the People of the Reminder if you do not know. (21:7)

We have sent down to you a Book containing your Reminder. So will you not use your intellect? (21:10)

We gave to Musa and Harun the Discrimination and a Shining Light and a Reminder for the heedful. (21:48)

This is a blessed Reminder which We have sent down. So are you going to ignore it? (21:50)

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

We wrote down in the Zabur, after the Reminder came: 'It is My servants who are righteous who will inherit the earth.' (21:105)

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

(A wrongdoer will say,) 'He led me astray from the Reminder after it came to me.' Satan always leaves man in the lurch. (25:29)

Is it not enough for them that We have sent down to you the Book which is recited to them? There is certainly a mercy and reminder in that for people who believe. (29:51)

You can only warn those who act on the Reminder and fear the All-Merciful in the Unseen. Give them the good news of forgiveness and a generous reward. (36:11)

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

We did not teach him poetry nor would it be right for him. It is simply a reminder and a clear Qur'an. (36:69)

and by the reciters of the Reminder: (37:3)

When they are reminded they do not pay heed. (37:13)

They used to say, 'If we had only had a Reminder from the previous peoples, we would certainly have been sincere servants of Allah!' (37:167-169)

(The leaders of the disbelievers said,) 'Has the Reminder been sent down to him out of all of us?' They are in doubt about My Reminder. They have yet to taste My punishment. (38:8)

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

This is a Reminder. Those who guard against evil will have a good Homecoming. (38:49)

It is simply a reminder to all the worlds. (38:87)

Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the sky and threads it through the earth to emerge as springs and then by it brings forth crops of varying colours, which then wither and you see them turning yellow and then He makes them into broken stubble? There is a reminder in that for people of intelligence. (39:21)

We gave Musa the guidance and bequeathed the Book to the tribe of Israel, as guidance and a reminder for people of intelligence. (40:53-54)

Shall We then deprive you of the Reminder for being a profligate people? (43:5)

It is certainly a reminder to you and to your people and you will be questioned. (43:44)

How shall they be reminded when a clear Messenger has already come to them? (44:13)

What are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive? (47:18)

And the earth: how We stretched it out and cast firmly embedded mountains onto it and caused luxuriant plants of every kind to grow in it, an instruction and a reminder for every penitent human being. (50:7-8)

There is a reminder in that for anyone who has a heart, or who listens well, having seen the evidence. (50:37)

We know best what they say. You are not a dictator over them. So remind, with the Qur'an, whoever fears My Threat. (50:45)

And remind them, for truly the believers benefit from being reminded. (51:55)

Remind them then! For, by the blessing of your Lord, you are neither a soothsayer nor a madman. (52:29)

(They said,) 'Has the Reminder been given to him of all of us? No indeed! He is an impudent liar.' (54:25)

We have made it to be a reminder and a comfort for travellers in the wild. (56:73)

Allah has prepared a terrible punishment for them. So have fear of Allah, people of intelligence-those who believe-Allah has sent down a reminder to you. (65:10)

Those who disbelieve all but strike you down with their evil looks when they hear the Reminder and say, 'He is quite mad.' (68:51)

But it is nothing less than a Reminder to all the worlds. (68:52)

When the waters rose We carried you in the ship to make it a reminder for you and something to be retained by retentive ears. (69:11-12)

It (the Qur'an) is a reminder for the heedful. (69:48)

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

We have only appointed angels as masters of the Fire and We have only specified their number as a trial for those who disbelieve; so that those who were given the Book might gain in certainty, and those who believe might increase in their faith, and both those who were given the Book and the believers might have no doubt; and so that those with sickness in their hearts and the disbelievers might say, 'What did Allah intend by this example?' In this way Allah misguides those He wills and guides those He wills. No one knows the legions of your Lord but Him. This is nothing but a reminder to all human beings. (74:31)

What is the matter with them that they run from the Reminder? (74:49)

No indeed! It is truly a reminder to which anyone who wills may pay heed. (74:54-55)

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

by those hurling a reminder, (77:5)

But how do you know? Perhaps he would be purified or reminded, and the reminder benefit him. (80:3-4)

No indeed! Truly it is a reminder, (80:11)

It is nothing but a Reminder to all the worlds. (81:27)

Remind, then, if the reminder benefits. He who has fear will be reminded. (87:9-10)

So remind them! You are only a reminder. (88:21)


REMORSE

Then Allah sent a crow which scratched at the earth to show him how to conceal his brother's corpse. He said, 'Woe is me! Can I not even be like this crow and conceal my brother's corpse?' And he became one of those who suffer bitter remorse. (5:31)

If every self that did wrong possessed everything on earth, it would offer it as a ransom. They will show remorse when they see the punishment. Everything will be decided between them justly. They will not be wronged. (10:54)

But they hamstrung her (the she-camel) and woke up full of remorse. (26:157)

Those deemed weak will say to those deemed great, 'No, it was your scheming night and day when you commanded us to reject Allah and assign equals to Him.' But they will show their remorse when they see the punishment. We will put iron collars round the necks of those who disbelieve. Will they be repaid for anything but what they did? (34:33)


REPAYMENT

Kill them wherever you come across them and expel them from where they expelled you. Corruption is worse than killing. Do not fight them in the Sacred Mosque (Masjid al-Haram) until they fight you there. But if they do fight you, then kill them. That is how the disbelievers should be repaid. (2:191)

The repayment of such people is that Allah's curse is on them and that of the angels and of all mankind. (3:87)

As for anyone who kills a believer deliberately, his repayment is Hell, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. Allah is angry with him and has cursed him, and has prepared for him a terrible punishment. (4:93)

But as for those who believe and do right actions, We will admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever and ever. Allah's promise is true. Whose speech could be truer than Allah's? 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. (4:122-123)

(One of Adam's two sons said to the other,) 'I want you to take on both my wrongdoing and your wrongdoing and so become one of the Companions of the Fire. That is the repayment of the wrongdoers.' (5:29)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents lies against Allah or denies His Signs, or who says, 'It has been revealed to me,' when nothing has been revealed to him, or someone who says, 'I will send down the same as Allah has sent down'? If you could only see the wrongdoers in the throes of death when the angels are stretching out their hands, saying, 'Disgorge your own selves! Today you will be repaid with the punishment of humiliation for saying something other than the truth about Allah, and being arrogant about His Signs.' (6:93)

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)

They say, 'What is in the wombs of these animals is exclusively for our men and forbidden for our wives. But if it is stillborn, they can share in it.' He will repay them for their false depiction. He is All-Wise, All-Knowing. (6:139)

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)

Nor can you say: 'If the Book had been sent down to us, We would have been better guided than they were.' For a Clear Sign has come to you from your Lord, and guidance and mercy. Who could do greater wrong than someone who denies Allah's Signs and turns away from them? We will repay those who turn away from Our Signs with the worst kind of punishment because they turned away. (6:157)

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

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

They will have Hell as a resting-place and covering layers on top of them. That is how We repay wrongdoers. (7:41)

As for those who denied Our Signs and the encounter of the hereafter, their actions will come to nothing. Will they be repaid except for what they did? (7:147)

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

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)

Let them laugh little and weep much, in repayment for what they have earned. (9:82)

They will swear to you by Allah when you return to them, so that you leave them alone. Leave them alone, then! They are filth. Their shelter will be Hell as repayment for what they did. (9:95)

Each and every one of you will return to Him. Allah's promise is true. He brings creation out of nothing and then regenerates it so that he can repay with justice those who believed and did right actions. Those who disbelieved will have a drink of scalding water and a painful punishment because of their disbelief. (10:4)

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

Then it will be said to those who did wrong, 'Taste the punishment of eternity! Have you been repaid for anything other than what you earned?' (10:52)

They said, 'Its reparation shall be him in the saddlebags of whom it is discovered. With us that is how wrongdoers are repaid.' (12:75)

So that Allah may repay every self for what it earned. Allah is swift at reckoning. (14:51)

Gardens of Eden which they enter, with rivers flowing under them, where they have whatever they desire. That is how Allah repays those who guard against evil. (16:31)

He said (to Satan), 'Go! And as for any who follow you, your repayment is Hell, repayment in full!' (17:63)

That is their repayment for rejecting Our Signs and saying, 'What, when we are bones and crumbled dust, will we then be raised up as a new creation?' (17:98)

That is their repayment-Hell-because they disbelieved and made a mockery of My Signs and of My Messengers. (18:106)

That is how We repay anyone who is profligate and does not believe in the Signs of his Lord. And the punishment of the hereafter is much harsher and longer lasting. (20:127)

Were any of them to say, 'I am a god apart from Him,' We would repay him with Hell. That is how We repay wrongdoers. (21:29)

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

Those who perform bad actions will be flung head first into the Fire: 'Are you being repaid for anything other than what you did?' (27:90)

Those who disbelieved will find that their disbelief was against themselves. Those who did right were making the way easy for themselves; so that He can repay with His bounty those who believed and did right actions. He certainly does not love the disbelievers. (30:44-45)

Those deemed weak will say to those deemed great, 'No, it was your scheming night and day when you commanded us to reject Allah and assign equals to Him.' But they will show their remorse when they see the punishment. We will put iron collars round the necks of those who disbelieve. Will they be repaid for anything but what they did? (34:33)

Whereas for those who disbelieve there will be the Fire of Hell. They will not be killed off so that they die and its punishment will not be lightened for them. That is how We repay every thankless man. (35:36)

You will definitely taste the painful punishment and you will only be repaid for what you did-except for Allah's chosen servants. (37:38-40)

Whoever does an evil act will only be repaid with its equivalent. But whoever acts rightly, male or female, being a believer, such a person will enter the Garden, provided for in it without any reckoning. (40:40)

We will make those who disbelieve suffer a severe punishment and repay them for the worst of what they did. (41:27)

That is the repayment of the enemies of Allah-the Fire. They will have it for their Eternal Home as repayment for their renunciation of Our Signs. (41:28)

Tell those who believe that they should forgive those who feel no fear about the Days of Allah, when He will repay people according to what they earned. (45:14)

On the Day when those who disbelieved are exposed to the Fire: 'You dissipated the good things you had in your worldly life and enjoyed yourself in it. So today you are being repaid with the punishment of humiliation for being arrogant in the earth without any right and for being deviators.' (46:20)

When they saw it as a storm cloud advancing on their valleys they said, 'This is a storm cloud which will give us rain.' No, rather it is what you desired to hasten-a wind containing painful punishment, destroying everything at its Lord's command! When morning came you could see nothing but their dwellings. That is how We repay the people of the evildoers. (46:24-25)

(They 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)

Everything in the heavens and everything in the earth belongs to Allah so that He can repay those who do evil for what they did and repay those who do good with the Very Best. (53:31)

The final fate of both of them is that they will be timelessly, for ever in the Fire. That is the repayment of the wrongdoers. (59:17)


REPENTANCE (TAWBAH)

Those who hide the Clear Signs and Guidance We have sent down, after We have made it clear to people in the Book, Allah curses them, and the cursers curse them-except for those who repent and put things right and make things clear. I turn towards them. I am the Ever-Returning, the Most Merciful. (2:159-160)

You who believe! Have fear of Allah and forgo any remaining usury if you are believers. If you do not, know that it means war from Allah and His Messenger. But if you repent you may have your capital, without wronging and without being wronged. (2:278-279)

Except for those who, after that, repent and put things right. Truly Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (3:89)

Those who disbelieve after believing and then increase in their disbelief, their repentance will not be accepted. They are the misguided. (3:90)

If two of you commit a like abomination, punish them. If they repent and reform, leave them alone. Allah is Ever-Returning, Most Merciful. (4:16)

Allah only accepts the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and then quickly repent after doing it. Allah turns towards such people. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (4:17)

There is no repentance for people who persist in doing evil until death comes to them and who then say, 'Now I repent,' nor for people who die disbeliever. We have prepared for them a painful punishment. (4:18)

The hypocrites are in the lowest level of the Fire. You will not find any one to help them, except those who repent and put things right and hold fast to Allah and dedicate their religion to Allah alone; they are with the believers. Allah will give the believers an immense reward. (4:145-146)

The reprisal against those who wage war on Allah and His Messenger, and go about the earth corrupting it, is that they should be killed or crucified, or have their alternate hands and feet cut off, or be banished from the land. That will be their degradation in this world and in the hereafter they will have a terrible punishment, except for those who repent before you gain power over them. Know that Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (5:33-34)

But if anyone repents after his wrongdoing and puts things right, Allah will turn towards him. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (5:39)

When those who believe in Our Signs come to you, say, 'Peace be upon you!' Allah has made mercy incumbent on Himself. If anyone among you does evil out of ignorance and then afterwards repents and puts things right, He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (6:54)

When Musa came to Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said, 'My Lord, show me Yourself so that I may look at You!' He said, 'You will not see Me, but look at the mountain. If it remains firm in its place, then you will see Me.' But when His Lord manifested Himself to the mountain, He crushed it flat and Musa fell unconscious to the ground. When he regained consciousness he said, 'Glory be to You! I repent to You and I am the first of the believers!' (7:143)

But as for those who do evil actions and then subsequently repent and believe, in that case your Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (7:153)

A proclamation from Allah and His Messenger to mankind on the day of the greater pilgrimage: 'Allah is free of the idolaters, as is His Messenger. If you repent, it will be better for you. But if you turn your backs, know that you cannot thwart Allah.' Give those who disbelieve the news of a painful punishment. (9:3)

Then, when the sacred months are over, kill the idolaters wherever you find them, and seize them and besiege them and lie in wait for them on every road. If they repent and perform prayer and give the alms, let them go on their way. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (9:5)

But if they repent and perform prayer and give the alms, they are your brothers in the religion. We make the Signs clear for people who have knowledge. (9:11)

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)

Do they not know that Allah accepts repentance from His servants and acknowledges their alms, and that Allah is the Ever-Returning, the Most Merciful? (9:104)

Those who repent, those who worship, those who praise, those who fast, those who bow, those who prostrate, those who command the right, those who forbid the wrong, those who preserve the limits of Allah: give good news to the believers. (9:112)

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

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

To Thamud We sent their brother Salih. He said, 'My people, worship Allah! You have no god apart from Him. He brought you into being from the earth and made you its inhabitants. So ask His forgiveness and then repent to Him. My Lord is Close and Quick to Respond.' (11:61)

(Shu'ayb said,) 'Ask your Lord for forgiveness and then repent to Him. My Lord is Most Merciful, Most Loving.' (11:90)

But to those who do evil in ignorance and then after that repent and put things right, to them your Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (16:119)

An evil generation succeeded them who neglected the prayer and followed their appetites. They will plunge into the Valley of Evil-except for those who repent and believe and act rightly. They will enter the Garden and they will not be wronged in any way: (19:59-60)

But I am Ever-Forgiving to anyone who repents and believes and acts rightly and then is guided. (20:82)

But those who make accusations against chaste women and then do not produce four witnesses: flog them with eighty lashes and never again accept them as witnesses. Such people are deviators-except for those who after that repent and put things right. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (24:4-5)

And on the Day of Rising his punishment will be doubled and he will be humiliated in it timelessly, for ever, except for those who repent and believe and act rightly: Allah will transform the wrong actions of such people into good-Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (25:69-70)

For certainly all who repent and act rightly have turned sincerely towards Allah; (25:71)

But as for those who repent and act rightly, they will hopefully be successful. (28:67)

The Forgiver of wrong action, the Accepter of repentance, the Severe in retribution, the Possessor of abundance. There is no god but Him. He is the final destination. (40:3)

It is He Who accepts repentance from His servants and pardons evil acts and knows what they do. (42:25)

We have instructed man to be good to his parents. His mother bore him with difficulty and with difficulty gave birth to him; and his bearing and weaning take thirty months. Then when he achieves his full strength and reaches forty, he says, 'My Lord, keep me thankful for the blessing You bestowed on me and on my parents, and keep me acting rightly, pleasing You. And make my descendants righteous. I have repented to You and I am truly one of the Muslims.' (46:15)

You who believe! Repent to Allah. It may be that your Lord will erase your bad actions from you and admit you into Gardens with rivers flowing under them on the Day when Allah will not disgrace the Prophet and those who believed along with him. Their light will stream out ahead of them and on their right. They will say, 'Our Lord, perfect our light for us and forgive us! You have power over all things.' (66:8)

Those who persecute men and women of the believers, and then do not repent, will have the punishment of Hell, will have the punishment of the Burning. (85:10)


RESTING PLACE

When he is told to have fear of Allah, he is seized by pride which drives him to wrongdoing. Hell will be enough for him! What an evil resting-place! (2:206)

Say to those who disbelieve: 'You will be overwhelmed and crowded into Hell. What an evil resting-place!' (3:12)

A brief enjoyment; then their shelter will be Hell. What an evil resting-place! (3:197)

They will have Hell as a resting-place and covering layers on top of them. That is how We repay wrongdoers. (7:41)

Hell, where they will roast. What an evil resting-place! (38:56)


RESURRECTION

How can you reject Allah, when you were dead and then He gave you life, then He will make you die and then give you life again, then you will be returned to Him? (2:28)

Then We brought you back to life after your death, so that perhaps you would show thanks. (2:56)

We said, 'Hit (the dead body) with part of the (sacrificed cow)!' In that way Allah gives life to the dead and He shows you His Signs so that hopefully you will understand. (2:73)

In the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and day, and the ships which sail the seas to people's benefit, and the water which Allah sends down from the sky-by which He brings the earth to life when it was dead and scatters about in it creatures of every kind-and the varying direction of the winds, and the clouds subservient between heaven and earth, there are Signs for people who use their intellect. (2:164)

What do you think about those who left their homes in thousands in fear of death? Allah said to them, 'Die!' and then brought them back to life. Allah shows great favour to mankind, but most people are not grateful. (2:243)

Or the one who passed by a town which had fallen into ruin? He asked, 'How can Allah restore this to life when it has died?' Allah caused him to die a hundred years then brought him back to life. Then He asked, 'How long have you been here?' He replied, 'I have been here a day or part of a day.' He said, 'Not so! You have been here a hundred years. Look at your food and drink-it has not gone bad-and look at your donkey so We can make you a Sign for all mankind. Look at the bones-how We raise them up and clothe them in flesh.' When it had become clear to him, he said, 'Now I know that Allah has power over all things.' (2:259)

When Ibrahim said, 'My Lord, show me how You bring the dead to life.' He asked, 'Do you not then believe?' He replied, 'Indeed I do! But so that my heart may be at peace.' He said, 'Take four birds and train them to yourself. Then put a part of them on each mountain and call to them; they will come rushing to you. Know that Allah is Almighty, All-Wise.' (2:260)

They say, 'There is nothing but this life and we will not be raised again.' (6:29)

Only those who can hear respond. As for the dead, Allah will raise them up, then to Him they will be returned. (6:36)

It is He Who takes you back to Himself at night, while knowing the things you perpetrate by day, and then raises you again to life, so that a specified term may be fulfilled. Then you will return to Him. Then He will inform you about what you did. (6:60)

Is someone who was dead and whom We brought to life, supplying him with a light by which to walk among people, the same as someone who is in utter darkness, unable to emerge from it? That is how what they were doing is made to seem attractive to the disbelievers. (6:122)

He (Satan) said, 'Grant me a reprieve until the day they are raised up.' (7:14)

It is He Who sends out the winds, bringing advance news of His mercy, so that when they have lifted up the heavy clouds, We dispatch them to a dead land and send down water to it, by means of which We bring forth all kinds of fruit. In the same way We will bring forth the dead, so that hopefully you will pay heed. (7:57)

He gives life and causes to die and you will be returned to Him. (10:56)

It is He Who created the heavens and the earth in six days when His Throne was on the water, in order to test which of you has the best actions. If you say, 'You will be raised up after death,' those who disbelieve will say, 'This is nothing but downright magic.' (11:7)

He (Satan) said, 'My Lord, grant me a reprieve until the Day they are raised again.' (15:36)

They are dead, not alive, and they are not aware of when they will be raised. (16:21)

They swear by Allah with their most earnest oaths that Allah will not raise up those who die, when, on the contrary, it is a binding promise on Him; but most people do not know it. (16:38)

(They will be raised up), so that He can make clear to them the things they differed about and so that those who disbelieved will know that they were liars. (16:39)

Allah sends down water from the sky and by it brings the dead earth back to life. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who hear. (16:65)

They say, 'What! When we are bones and crumbled dust, will we then be raised up as a new creation!' (17:49)

That is their repayment for rejecting Our Signs and saying, 'What, when we are bones and crumbled dust, will we then be raised up as a new creation?' (17:98)

That was the situation when we raised them up (from sleep) so they could question one another. One of them asked, 'How long have you been here?' They replied, 'We have been here for a day or part of a day.' They said, 'Your Lord knows best how long you have been here. Send one of your number into the city with this silver you have, so he can see which food is purest and bring you some of it to eat. But he should go about with caution so that no one is aware of you.' (18:19)

Or have they taken gods out of the earth who can bring the dead to life? (21:21)

Mankind! If you are in any doubt about the Rising, know that We created you from dust then from a drop of sperm then from a clot of blood then from a lump of flesh, formed yet unformed, so We may make things clear to you. We make whatever We want stay in the womb until a specified time and then We bring you out as children so that you can reach your full maturity. Some of you die and some of you revert to the lowest form of life so that, after having knowledge, they then know nothing at all. And you see the earth dead and barren; then when We send down water onto it it quivers and swells and sprouts with luxuriant plants of every kind. (22:5)

That is because Allah is the Real and gives life to the dead and has power over all things and the Hour is coming without any doubt and Allah will raise up all those in the graves. (22:6-7)

It is He Who gave you life and then will cause you to die and then will give you life again. Man is truly ungrateful. (22:66)

Then on the Day of Rising you will be raised again. (23:16)

Does he promise you that when you have died and become dust and bones you will be brought forth again? (23:35)

What is there but our life in this world? We die and we live and we will not be raised again. (23:37)

They say, 'When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we then be raised again?' (23:82)

When death comes to one of them, he says, 'My Lord, send me back again so that perhaps I may act rightly regarding the things I failed to do!' No indeed! It is just words he utters. Before them there is an interspace until the Day they are raised up. (23:99-100)

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)

They themselves have come across the city which was rained on by an evil rain. Did they not then see it? But they do not expect to rise again. (25:40)

(Ibrahim said, 'It is) He Who will cause my death, then give me life.' (26:81)

(Ibrahim said, 'My Lord,) do not disgrace me on the Day they are raised up.' (26:87)

Say: 'No one in the heavens and the earth knows the Unseen except Allah.' They are not aware of when they will be raised. (27:65)

Those who disbelieve say, 'When we and our fathers are turned to dust will we then be brought forth again? We have been promised (to be brought forth again) before, we and our fathers. This is nothing but myths and legends of previous peoples.' (27:67-68)

If you ask them, 'Who sends down water from the sky, bringing the earth back to life again after it was dead?' they will say, 'Allah.' Say: 'Praise be to Allah.' But most of them do not use their intellect. (29:63)

He brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living and brings the earth to life after it was dead. In the same way you too will be brought forth. (30:19)

Among His Signs is that He shows you lightning, a source of fear and eager hope, and sends down water from the sky, bringing the dead earth back to life by it. There are certainly Signs in that for people who use their intellect. (30:24)

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)

So look at the effect of the mercy of Allah, how He brings the dead earth back to life. Truly He is the One Who brings the dead to life. He has power over all things. (30:50)

Those who have been given knowledge and faith will say, 'You tarried in accordance with Allah's Decree until the Day of Rising. And this is the Day of Rising, but you did not know it.' (30:56)

Your creation and rising is only like that of a single self. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (31:28)

It is Allah Who sends the winds which raise the clouds which We then drive to a dead land and by them bring the earth to life after it was dead. That is how the Resurrection will be. (35:9)

We bring the dead to life and We record what they send ahead and what they leave behind. We have listed everything in a clear register. (36:12)

A Sign for them is the dead land which We bring to life and from which We bring forth grain of which they eat. (36:33)

The Trumpet will be blown and at once they will be sliding from their graves towards their Lord. (36:51)

They will say, 'Alas for us! Who has raised us from our resting-place? This is what the All-Merciful promised us. The Messengers were telling the truth.' (36:52)

He makes likenesses of Us and forgets his own creation, saying, 'Who will give life to bones when they are decayed?' (36:78)

Say: 'He Who made them in the first place will bring them back to life. He has total knowledge of each created thing.' (36:79)

(They say,) 'When we are dead and turned to dust and bones will we then be raised up again alive? And our earlier ancestors as well?' Say: 'Yes, and you will be in a despicable state.' There will be but one Great Blast and then their eyes will open. (37:16-19)

One of them will say, 'I used to have a friend who would say to me, "Are you one of those who say that it is true: that when we have died and are turned to dust and bones, we will face a Reckoning?"' (37:51-53)

Had it not been that he was a man who glorified Allah, he would have remained inside its belly until the Day they are raised again. (37:143-144)

Say 'He Who made them in the first place will bring them back to life. He has total knowledge of each created thing.' (36:79)

He (Satan) said, 'My Lord, grant me a reprieve until the Day they are raised again.' (38:79)

They will say, 'Our Lord, twice You caused us to die and twice You gave us life. We admit our wrong actions. Is there no way out?' (40:11)

Among His Signs is that you see the earth laid bare and then when We send down water on it, it quivers and swells. He Who gives it life is He Who gives life to the dead. Certainly He has power over all things. (41:39)

Have they then taken others besides Him as protectors? But Allah is the Protector. He gives life to the dead. He has power over all things. (42:9)

It is He Who sends down water in due measure from the sky by which We bring a dead land back to life. That is how you too will be brought forth. (43:11)

These people say, 'There is nothing more than our first death. We will not be raised up a second time.' (44:34-35)

And in the alternation of night and day and the provision Allah sends down from the sky, bringing the earth to life by it after it has died, and the varying direction of the winds, there are Signs for people who use their intellect. (45:5)

They say, 'There is nothing but our existence in this world. We die and we live and nothing destroys us except for time.' They have no knowledge of that. They are only conjecturing. (45:24)

When Our Clear Signs are recited to them their only argument is to say, 'Bring us our fathers (back) if you are telling the truth.' (45:25)

Say: 'Allah gives you life, then causes you to die, and then will gather you together for the Day of Rising about which there is no doubt. But most people do not know it.' (45:26)

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)

Do they not see that Allah-He Who created the heavens and the earth and was not wearied by creating them-has the power to bring the dead to life? Yes indeed! He has power over all things. (46:33)

(Disbelievers say,) 'When we are dead and turned to dust...? That would be a most unlikely return!' (50:3)

(We sent down water) as provision for Our servants; by it We brought a dead land to life. That is how the Emergence will take place. (50:11)

The Day they hear the Blast in truth, that is the Day of Emergence. (50:42)

It is We Who give life and cause to die and We are their final destination. (50:43)

(Has he not been informed) that He is responsible for the second existence? (53:47)

On the Day Allah raises up all of them together, He will inform them of what they did. Allah has recorded it while they have forgotten it. Allah is a Witness of all things. (58:6)

On the Day Allah raises up all of them together they will swear to Him just as they have sworn to you and imagine they have something to stand upon. No indeed! It is they who are the liars. (58:18)

Those who disbelieve claim that they will never be raised again. Say: 'Oh yes, by my Lord, you certainly will be raised again! And then you will be informed about what you did. That is easy for Allah.' (64:7)

Allah caused you to grow from the earth then will return you to it and bring you out again. (71:17-18)

They thought-as you also think-that Allah would never raise up anyone. (72:7)

Is He Who does this not able to bring the dead to life? (75:40)

They will say, 'Are we to be restored to how we were?' (79:10)

Then, when He wills, He raises him from the dead. (80:22)

Do such people not realise that they will be raised up? (83:4)

He originates and regenerates. (85:13)


RETALIATION

You who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the case of people killed: free man for free man, slave for slave, female for female. But if someone is absolved by his brother, blood-money should be claimed with correctness and paid with good will. That is an easement and a mercy from your Lord. Anyone who goes beyond the limits after this will receive a painful punishment. (2:178)

There is life for you in retaliation, people of intelligence, so that hopefully you will guard against evil. (2:179)

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)


RETREAT

On the night of the fast it is lawful for you to have sexual relations with your wives. They are clothing for you and you for them. Allah knows that you have been betraying yourselves and He has turned towards you and excused you. Now you may have sexual intercourse with them and seek what Allah has written for you. Eat and drink until you can clearly discern the white thread from the black thread of the dawn, then fulfil the fast until the night appears. But do not have sexual intercourse with them while you are in retreat in the mosques. These are Allah's limits, so do not go near them. In this way does Allah make His Signs clear to people so that hopefully they will guard against evil. (2:187)

The angels called out to him while he (Zakariyya) was standing in prayer in the Upper Room: 'Allah gives you the good news of Yahya, who will come to confirm a Word from Allah, and will be a leader and a celibate, a Prophet and one of the righteous.' (3:39)

They are not all the same. There is a community among the People of the Book who are upright. They recite Allah's Signs throughout the night, and they prostrate. (3:113)


RETRIBUTION

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

Ask the tribe of Israel how many Clear Signs We gave to them. If anyone alters Allah's blessing after it has come to him, Allah is fierce in retribution. (2:211)

Know that Allah is fierce in retribution and that Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (5:98)

They want you to hasten the bad rather than the good when examples of punishment are there before them in the past. Your Lord has forgiveness for people for their wrongdoing; but your Lord is also severe in retribution. (13:6)

The Forgiver of wrong action, the Accepter of repentance, the Severe in retribution, the Possessor of abundance. There is no god but Him. He is the final destination. (40:3)

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)

That was because their Messengers brought them the Clear Signs but they remained disbelievers. So Allah seized them. He is Most Strong, Severe in Retribution. (40:22)

That is because they were entrenched in hostility towards Allah and His Messenger. If anyone is hostile towards Allah, Allah is Severe in Retribution. (59:04)

Whatever booty Allah gives to His Messenger from city dwellers belongs to Allah and to the Messenger and to near relatives and orphans and the very poor and travellers, so that it does not become something which merely revolves between the rich among you. Whatever the Messenger gives you you should accept and whatever he forbids you you should forgo. Have fear of Allah-Allah is severe in retribution. (59:7)


REVELATION

This is news from the Unseen which We reveal to you. You were not with them when they cast their reeds to see which of them would be the guardian of Maryam. You were not with them when they quarrelled. (3:44)

We have revealed to you as We revealed to Nuh and the Prophets who came after him. And We revealed to Ibrahim and Isma'il and Ishaq and Ya'qub and the Tribes, and 'Isa and Ayyub and Yunus and Harun and Sulayman. And We gave Dawud the Zabur. (4:163)

Say: 'What thing is greatest as a witness?' Say: 'Allah. He is Witness between me and you. This Qur'an has been revealed to me so that I may warn you by it, and anyone else it reaches. Do you then bear witness that there are other gods together with Allah?' Say: 'I do not bear witness.' Say: 'He is only One God, and I am free of all you associate with Him.' (6:19)

Say: 'I do not say to you that I possess the treasuries of Allah, nor do I know the Unseen, nor do I say to you that I am an angel. I only follow what has been revealed to me.' Say: 'Are the blind the same as those who can see? So will you not reflect?' (6:50)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents lies against Allah or denies His Signs, or who says, 'It has been revealed to me,' when nothing has been revealed to him, or someone who says, 'I will send down the same as Allah has sent down'? If you could only see the wrongdoers in the throes of death when the angels are stretching out their hands, saying, 'Disgorge your own selves! Today you will be repaid with the punishment of humiliation for saying something other than the truth about Allah, and being arrogant about His Signs.' (6:93)

Follow what has been revealed to you from your Lord-there is no god but Him-and turn away from the idolaters. (6:106)

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

We revealed to Musa, 'Throw down your staff.' And it immediately swallowed up what they had forged. (7:117)

We divided them up into twelve tribes-communities. We revealed to Musa, when his people asked him for water: 'Strike the rock with your staff.' Twelve fountains flowed out from it and all the people knew their drinking place. And We shaded them with clouds and sent down manna and quails to them: 'Eat of the good things We have provided you with.' They did not wrong Us; rather it was themselves they wronged. (7:160)

If you do not bring them a Sign, they say, 'Why have you not come up with one?' Say, 'I follow only what has been revealed to me from my Lord.' This is clear insight from your Lord, and guidance and mercy, for people who believe. (7:203)

And when your Lord revealed to the angels, 'I am with you so make those who believe firm. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, so strike their necks and strike all their finger joints!' (8:12)

Do people find it so surprising that We should reveal to a man among them: 'Warn mankind and give good news to those who believe that they are on a sure footing with their Lord'? The disbelievers say, 'This is downright magic!' (10:2)

When Our Clear Signs are recited to them, those who do not expect to meet Us say, 'Bring a Qur'an other than this one or change it.' Say: 'It is not for me to change it of my own accord. I follow nothing except what is revealed to me. I fear, were I to disobey my Lord, the punishment of a Dreadful Day.' (10:15)

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)

Follow what has been revealed to you and be steadfast until Allah's judgement comes. He is the Best of Judges. (10:109)

Perhaps you are leaving aside part of what has been revealed to you and your breast is constricted by this because they say, 'Why has treasure not been sent down to him or an angel not accompanied him?' You are only a warner and Allah is Guardian over all things. (11:12)

It was revealed to Nuh: 'None of your people are going to believe except for those who already believe, so do not be distressed at what they do.' Build the Ark under Our supervision and as We reveal and do not address Me concerning the wrongdoers. They shall be drowned.' (11:36-37)

That is some of the news of the Unseen which We reveal to you. Neither you nor your people knew it before this time. So be steadfast. The best end result is for those who guard against evil. (11:49)

We tell you the best of stories in revealing this Qur'an to you, even though you were unaware of it before it came. (12:3)

But when, in fact, they did go out with him (Yusuf) and gathered all together and agreed to put him at the bottom of the well, We then revealed to him that: 'You will inform them of this deed they perpetrate at a time when they are totally unaware.' (12:15)

This is news of the Unseen which We reveal to you. You were not with them when they decided what to do and devised their scheme.' (12:102)

We sent none before you but men inspired with revelation from among the people of the cities. Have they not travelled in the land and seen the final fate of those before them? The abode of the hereafter is better for those who guard against evil. So will you not use your intellect? (12:109)

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)

Those who disbelieved said to their Messengers, 'We will drive you from our land unless you return to our religion.' Their Lord revealed to them, 'We will destroy those who do wrong.' (14:13)

We have only ever sent before you men who were given Revelation-ask the People of the Reminder if you do not know. (16:43)

Your Lord revealed to the bees: 'Build dwellings in the mountains and the trees, and also in the structures which men erect.' (16:68)

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)

That is part of the wisdom your Lord has revealed to you. Do not set up another god together with Allah and so be thrown into Hell, blamed and driven out. (17:39)

They were very near to enticing you away from some of what We have revealed to you, hoping that you would invent something against Us. Then they would have taken you as their intimate. (17:73)

If We wished We could take away what We have revealed to you and then you would not find any to guard you from Us. (17:86)

Recite what has been revealed to you of your Lord's Book. No one can change His Words. You will never find any safe haven apart from Him. (18:27)

Say: 'I am only a human being like yourselves. It is revealed to me that your god is One God. So let him who hopes to meet his Lord act rightly and not associate anyone in the worship of his Lord.' (18:110)

(A voice called out, 'Musa!) I have chosen you, so listen well to what is revealed.' (20:13)

He said, 'Your request has been granted, Musa. We were gracious to you another time when We revealed to your mother: "Place him into the box and throw it into the sea and the sea will wash it up on the shore, where an enemy of Mine and his will pick it up." I showered you with love from Me so that you would be brought up under My supervision.' (20:36-39)

(He said to Musa 'Go to Pharaoh and say,) "It has been revealed to us that punishment is for him who denies the truth and turns away."' (20:48)

We revealed to Musa, 'Travel with My servants by night. Strike a dry path for them through the sea. Have no fear of being overtaken and do not be afraid.' (20:77)

High exalted be Allah, the King, the Real! Do not rush ahead with the Qur'an before its revelation to you is complete, and say: 'My Lord, increase me in knowledge.' (20:114)

We have only ever sent before you men who were given Revelation. Ask the People of the Reminder if you do not know. (21:7)

We sent no Messenger before you without revealing to him: 'There is no god but Me, so worship Me.' (21:25)

Say: 'I can only warn you through the Revelation.' But the deaf cannot hear the call when they are warned. (21:45)

We made them leaders, guiding by Our command, and revealed to them how to do good actions and perform prayer and give the alms, and they worshipped Us. (21:73)

Say: 'It is revealed to me that your god is One God. So are you Muslims?' (21:108)

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)

We revealed to Musa: 'Travel with Our servants by night. You will certainly be pursued.' (26:52)

So We revealed to Musa, 'Strike the sea with your staff.' And it split in two, each part like a towering cliff. (26:63)

We revealed to Musa's mother, 'Suckle him and then when you fear for him cast him into the sea. Do not fear or grieve; We will return him to you and make him one of the Messengers.' (28:7)

Recite what has been revealed to you of the Book and perform prayer. Prayer precludes indecency and wrongdoing. And remembrance of Allah is greater still. Allah knows what you do. (29:45)

Follow what has been revealed to you from your Lord. Allah is aware of what you do. (33:2)

Say: 'If I am misguided, it is only to my detriment. But if I am guided, it is by what my Lord reveals to me. He is All-Hearing, Close-at-hand.' (34:50)

What We have revealed to you of the Book is the truth, confirming what came before it. Allah is aware of and sees His servants. (35:31)

Say: 'It is only revealed to me that I am a clear warner.' (38:70)

It has been revealed to you and those before you: 'If you associate others with Allah, your actions will come to nothing and you will be among the losers.' (39:65)

Say: 'I am only a human being like yourselves. It is revealed to me that your god is One God. So be straight with Him and ask His forgiveness.' Woe to those who associate others with Him. (41:6)

In two days He determined them as seven heavens and revealed, in every heaven, its own mandate. We adorned the lowest heaven with lamps and guarded it. That is the decree of the Almighty, the All-Knowing. (41:12)

That is how He sends revelation to you and those before you. Allah is the Almighty, the All-Wise. (42:3)

Accordingly We have revealed to you an Arabic Qur'an so that you may warn the Mother of Cities and those around it, and give warning of the Day of Gathering about which there is no doubt: one group in the Garden, the other in the Blazing Fire. (42:7)

He has laid down the same religion for you as He enjoined on Nuh: that which We have revealed to you and which We enjoined on Ibrahim, Musa and 'Isa: 'Establish the religion and do not make divisions in it.' What you call the idolaters to follow is very hard for them. Allah chooses for Himself anyone He wills and guides to Himself those who turn to Him. (42:13)

It does not befit Allah to address any human being except by inspiration, or from behind a veil, or He sends a messenger who then reveals by His permission whatever He wills. He is indeed Most High, All-Wise. (42:51)

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. Truly you are guiding to a Straight Path. (42:52)

So hold fast to what has been revealed to you. You are on a straight path. (43:43)

Say: 'I am nothing new among the Messengers. I have no idea what will be done with me or you. I only follow what has been revealed to me. I am only a clear warner.' (46:9)

It is nothing but Revelation revealed, (53:4)

Then He revealed to His servant what He revealed. (53:10)

Say: 'It has been revealed to me that a band of the jinn listened and said, "We have heard a most amazing Recitation."' (72:1)
