THATCHER

We sent a single Blast against them and they were just like a thatcher's reeds. (54:31)


THIEF - STEALING

As for thieves, both male and female, cut off their hands in reprisal for what they have done: an object lesson from Allah. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (5:38)

Then when he (Yusuf) had supplied them with their needs, he put the goblet in his brother's bag. A herald called out, 'Caravan! You are thieves!' (12:70)

They said, 'By Allah, you know we did not come to corrupt the land and that we are not thieves.' (12:73)

They said, 'If he steals now, his brother stole before.' But Yusuf kept it to himself and still did not disclose it to them, saying, 'The plight that you are in is worse than that. Allah knows best the matter you describe.' (12:77)

(The eldest of Yusuf's brothers said,) 'Return now to your father and say to him, "Your son stole, father. We can do no more than testify to what we know and we are not the guardians of the Unseen."' (12:81)

Mankind! An example has been made, so listen to it carefully. Those whom you call upon besides Allah are not even able to create a single fly, even if they were to join together to do it. And if a fly steals something from them, they cannot get it back. How feeble are both the seeker and the sought! (22:73)

O Prophet! When women who believe come to you pledging allegiance to you on the grounds that they will not associate anything with Allah or steal or fornicate or kill their children or give a false ascription of paternity-making up lies about their bodies-or disobey you in respect of anything right, then accept their pledge and ask forgiveness for them. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (60:12)


THING OF THE PAST

We made them a thing of the past, an example for later peoples. (43:56)


THIRST

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)

(We said, Adam,) 'You will not go thirsty in it or burn in the sun.' (20:119)

But the actions of those who disbelieve are like a mirage in the desert. A thirsty man thinks it is water but when he reaches it, he finds it to be nothing at all, but he finds Allah there. He will pay him his account in full. Allah is swift at reckoning. (24:39)

Then you, you misguided, you deniers will eat from the tree of Zaqqum, filling your stomachs with it and drink scalding water on top of it, slurping like thirst-crazed camels. (56:51-55)


THOSE FIRMLY ROOTED IN KNOWLEDGE

It is He Who sent down the Book to you from Him: verses containing clear judgements-they are the core of the Book-and others which are open to interpretation. Those with deviation in their hearts follow what is open to interpretation in it, desiring conflict, seeking its inner meaning. No one knows its inner meaning but Allah. Those firmly rooted in knowledge say, 'We believe in it. All of it is from our Lord.' But only people of intelligence pay heed. (3:7)

But those of them who are firmly rooted in knowledge, and the believers, believe in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down before you: those who perform prayer and give the alms, and believe in Allah and the Last Day-We will pay such people an immense wage. (4:162)


THOSE IN COMMAND

You who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in command among you. If you have a dispute about something, refer it back to Allah and the Messenger, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best thing to do and gives the best result. (4:59)

When news of any matter reaches them they spread it about, whether it is of a reassuring or disquieting nature. If they had only referred it to the Messenger and those in command among them, those among them able to discern the truth about it would have had proper knowledge of it. If it were not for Allah's favour to you and His mercy, all but a very few of you would have followed Satan. (4:83)


THOSE WHO FLEE FROM BATTLE

Among you there are people who hang back and if you encounter a setback then they say, 'Allah has blessed me in that I was not there with them.' (4:72)

But if you meet with favour from Allah they say-as if there were no friendship between you and them-'Oh! If only I had been with them so that I too might have won a great victory.' (4:73)

... 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 will find others who desire to be safe from you and safe from their own people. Each time they are returned to dissension they are overwhelmed by it. If they do not keep away from you or submit to you or refrain from fighting, seize them and kill them wherever you find them. Over such people We have given you clear authority. (4:91)

You who believe! When you encounter those who disbelieve advancing in massed ranks into battle, do not turn your backs on them. (8:15)

Anyone who turns his back on them that day, unless he is withdrawing to rejoin the fight or withdrawing to support another group, brings Allah's anger down upon himself. His refuge is Hell. What an evil destination! (8:16)

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)

If you do not go out to fight, He will punish you with a painful punishment and substitute another people in your place. You will not harm Him in any way. Allah has power over all things. (9:39)

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

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)

If it had been a case of easy gains and a short journey, they would have followed you, but the distance was too great for them. They will swear by Allah: 'Had we been able to, we would have gone out with you.' They are destroying their own selves. Allah knows that they are lying. (9:42)

Allah pardon you! Why did you excuse them until it was clear to you which of them were telling the truth and until you knew the liars? (9:43)

Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day do not ask you to excuse them from striving with their wealth and themselves. Allah knows the people who guard against evil. (9:44)

Only those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day ask you to excuse them. Their hearts are full of doubt and in their doubt they waver to and fro. (9:45)

If they had really desired to go out (to fight), they would have made proper preparations for it, but Allah was averse to their setting out so He held them back and they were told: 'Stay behind with those who stay behind.' (9:46)

If they had gone out among you, they would have added nothing to you but confusion. They would have scurried about amongst you seeking to cause conflict between you, and among you there are some who would have listened to them. Allah knows the wrongdoers. (9:47)

They have already tried to cause conflict before, and turned things completely upside down for you, until the truth came and Allah's command prevailed even though they detested it. (9:48)

Among them are there some who say, 'Give me permission to stay. Do not put temptation in my way.' Have they not fallen into that very temptation? Hell hems in the disbelievers. (9:49)

If good happens to you it galls them. If a mishap occurs to you, they say, 'We made our preparations in advance,' and they turn away rejoicing. (9:50)

Say: 'Nothing can happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us. He is Our Master. It is in Allah that the believers should put their trust.' (9:51)

Say: 'What do you await for us except for one of the two best things? But what we await for you is for Allah to inflict a punishment on you either directly from Himself or at our hands. So wait, we are waiting with you!' (9:52)

Say: 'Whether you give readily or reluctantly, it will not be accepted from you. You are people who are deviators.' (9:53)

They swear by Allah that they are of your number, but they are not of your number. Rather, they are people who are scared. (9:56)

If they could find a bolt-hole, cave or burrow, they would turn and scurry away into it. (9:57)

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)

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

If Allah returns you to a group of them, and they ask you for permission to go out, say, 'You will never go out with me, nor will you ever fight an enemy with me. You were happy to stay behind the first time, so stay behind with those who are left behind.' (9:83)

Never pray over any of them who die or stand at their graves. They rejected Allah and His Messenger and died as deviators. (9:84)

They will swear to you to make you pleased with them, but even if you are pleased with them, Allah is certainly not pleased with deviant people. (9:96)

You who believe! Remember Allah's blessing to you when forces came against you and We sent a wind against them and other forces you could not see. Allah sees what you do. (33:9)

When they came at you from above you and below you, when your eyes rolled and your hearts rose to your throats, and you thought unworthy thoughts about Allah, at that point the believers were tested and severely shaken. (33:10-11)

When the hypocrites and people with sickness in their hearts said, 'What Allah and His Messenger promised us was mere delusion.' and a group of them said, 'People of Yathrib, Your position is untenable so return!', some of them asked the Prophet to excuse them, saying, 'Our houses are exposed,' when they were not exposed; it was merely that they wanted to run away. (33:12-13)

If they had been overrun from every side, and had then been asked to revert to disbelief, they would have done so and hesitated very little about it. (33:14)

Yet they had previously made a contract with Allah that they would never turn their backs. Contracts made with Allah will be asked about. (33:15)

Say: 'Flight will not benefit you if you try to run away from death or being killed. Then you will only enjoy a short respite.' (33:16)

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

Allah knows the obstructers among you and those who say to their brothers, 'Come to us,' and who only come to fight a very little, and are begrudging towards you. Then when fear comes, you see them looking at you, their eyes rolling like people scared to death. But when fear departs they flay you with sharp tongues, grasping for wealth. Such people have no faith and Allah will make their actions come to nothing. That is easy for Allah. (33:18-19)

They think that the Confederates have not departed and if the Confederates did appear then they would wish they were out in the desert with the Arabs, asking for news of you. If they were with you they would only fight a very little. (33:20)


THOSE WHO HAVE PERMISSION NOT TO FIGHT

Nothing is held against the weak and sick nor against those who find nothing to spend, provided they are true to Allah and His Messenger-there is no way open against good-doers, Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful-nor is anything held against those who, when they came to you for you to provide them with mounts and you said, 'I cannot find anything on which to mount you,' turned away with their eyes overflowing with tears, overcome by grief at having nothing to give. (9:92)

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

There is no constraint on the blind, nor on the lame, nor on the sick. We will admit all who obey Allah and His Messenger into Gardens with rivers flowing under them. But We will punish with a painful punishment anyone who turns his back. (48:17)


THROAT

When they came at you from above you and below you, when your eyes rolled and your hearts rose to your throats, and you thought unworthy thoughts about Allah, at that point the believers were tested and severely shaken. (33:10-11)

And warn them of the Day of Immediacy when hearts rise choking to the throat. The wrongdoers will have no close friend nor any intercessor who might be heard. (40:18)

Why then, when death reaches his throat and you are at that moment looking on-and We are nearer him than you but you cannot see-why then, if you are not subject to Our command, do you not send it back if you are telling the truth? (56:83-87)


THRONE

He (Yusuf) raised his parents up onto the throne. The others fell prostrate in front of him. He said, 'My father, truly this is now the interpretation of the dream I had. My Lord has made it all come true; and He was kind to me by letting me out of prison and brought you from the desert when Satan had caused dissent between me and my brothers. My Lord is kind to anyone He wills. He is indeed All-Knowing and All-Wise.' (12:100)

(The hoopoe said,) 'I found a woman ruling over them who has been given everything. She possesses a mighty throne.' (27:23)

He (Sulayman) said, 'Council! Who among you will bring me her throne before they come to me in submission?' (27:38)

He (Sulayman) said, 'Disguise her throne. We shall see whether she is guided or someone who is not guided.' (27:41)

Then when she came, she was asked, 'Is your throne like this?' She said, 'It is exactly like it.' 'We were given knowledge before her and were already Muslims,' (27:42)

We tested Sulayman and placed a lifeless body on his throne. Then he repented. (38:34)


THRONE, THE

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

But if they turn away, say, 'Allah is enough for me. There is no god but Him. I have put my trust in Him. He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.' (9:129)

Your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then established Himself firmly on the Throne. He directs the whole affair. No one can intercede except with His permission. That is Allah your Lord, so worship Him. Will you not pay heed? (10:3)

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)

Allah is He Who raised up the heavens without any support-you can see that-and then established Himself firmly on the Throne. He made the sun and moon subservient, each running for a specified term. He directs the whole affair. He makes the Signs clear so that hopefully you will be certain about the meeting with your Lord. (13:2)

Say: 'If there had, as you say, been other gods together with Him, they would have sought a way to the Master of the Throne.' (17:42)

(The Qur'an is) a Revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens, the All-Merciful, established firmly upon the Throne. (20:4-5)

If there had been any gods besides Allah in heaven or earth, they would both be ruined. Glory be to Allah, Lord of the Throne, beyond what they describe! (21:22)

Say: 'Who is the Lord of the Seven Heavens and the Lord of the Mighty Throne?' (23:86)

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

He Who created the heavens and the earth and everything in between them in six days, and then established Himself firmly on the Throne; the All-Merciful-ask anyone who is informed about Him. (25:59)

(The hoopoe said,) 'Allah-there is no god but Him-the Lord of the Mighty Throne.' (27:26)

Allah is He Who created the heavens and the earth and everything between them in six days and then established Himself firmly upon the Throne. You have no protector or intercessor apart from Him. So will you not pay heed? (32:4)

You will see the angels circling round the Throne, glorifying their Lord with praise. It will be decided between them with truth. And it will be said: 'Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.' (39:75)

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! Forgive those who turn to You and who follow Your Way and safeguard them from the punishment of the Blazing Fire.' (40:7)

He is the Raiser of ranks, the Possessor of the Throne, He sends the Spirit by His command to whichever of His servants He wills so that he may warn mankind about the Day of Meeting. (40:15)

Glory be to the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Throne, beyond what they describe. (43:82)

It is He Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then established Himself firmly on the Throne. He knows what goes into the earth and what comes out of it, what comes down from heaven and what goes up into it. He is with you wherever you are-Allah sees what you do. (57:4)

The angels will be gathered round its edge. On that Day, eight will bear the Throne of their Lord above their heads. (69:17)

Truly it (the Qur'an) is the speech of a noble Messenger, possessing great strength, securely placed with the Lord of the Throne. (81:19-20)

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


THUNDER

Or (their likeness is) that of a storm-cloud in the sky, full of darkness, thunder and lightning. They put their fingers in their ears against the thunderclaps, fearful of death. Allah encompasses the disbelievers. (2:19)

And when you said, 'Musa, we will not believe in you until we see Allah with our own eyes.' So the thunder-bolt struck you dead while you were looking. (2:55)

The thunder glorifies His praise, as do the angels, out of fear of Him. He discharges the thunderbolts, striking with them anyone He wills. Yet still they argue about Allah when He is inexorable in His power! (13:13)


TIGHT-FISTED

Those who are tight-fisted with the bounty Allah has given them should not suppose that that is better for them. No indeed, it is worse for them! What they were tight-fisted with will be hung around their necks on the Day of Rising. Allah is the inheritor of the heavens and the earth and Allah is aware of what you do. (3:180)

As for those who are tight-fisted and direct others to be tight-fisted, and hide the bounty Allah has given them, We have prepared a humiliating punishment for those who disbelieve. (4:37)

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 on the Day it is heated up in the fire of Hell and their foreheads, sides and backs are branded with it: 'This is what you hoarded for yourselves, so taste what you were hoarding!' (9:34-35)

But when He does give them of His bounty they are tight-fisted with it and turn away. (9:76)

Do not keep your hand chained to your neck but do not extend it either to its full extent so that you sit there blamed and destitute. (17:29)

Say: 'Even if you possessed the vast storehouses of my Lord's mercy, you would still hold back, fearing they would run out.' (17:100)

(Believers are) those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor mean, but take a stance mid way between the two. (25:67)

If He did ask you for it and put you under pressure, you would be tight-fisted and it would bring out your malevolence. (47:37)

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)

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

We have tried them as We tried the owners of the garden when they swore that they would harvest in the morning but did not say the redeeming words, 'If Allah wills'. So a visitation from your Lord came upon it while they slept and in the morning it was like burnt land stripped bare. In the morning they called out to one another, 'Leave early for your land if you want to pick the fruit.' So they set off, quietly saying to one another, 'Do not let any poor man into it today while you are there.' They left early, intent on carrying out their scheme. But when they saw it, they said, 'We must have lost our way. No, the truth is we are destitute!' The best of them said, 'Did I not say to you,"Why do you not glorify Allah?"' They said, 'Glory be to our Lord! Truly we have been wrongdoers.' They turned to face each other in mutual accusation. They said, 'Woe to us! We were indeed inordinate. Maybe our Lord will give us something better than it in exchange. We entreat our Lord.' Such is the punishment. And the punishment of the hereafter is much greater if they only knew. (68:17-33)

He used not to believe in Allah the Magnificent, nor did he urge the feeding of the poor. (69:33-34)

No indeed! You do not honour orphans nor do you urge the feeding of the poor. (89:17-18)

But no! It is a Raging Blaze stripping away the limbs and scalp, which calls for all who drew back and turned away, and amassed and hoarded up. (70:15-18)

Nor is he miserly with the Unseen. (81:24)

But as for him who is stingy and self-satisfied, and denies the Good, We will pave his way to Difficulty. His wealth will not help him when he plummets to the depths. (92:8-11)

Have you seen him who denies the religion? He is the one who harshly rebuffs the orphan and does not urge the feeding of the poor. (107:1-3)


TIME BEFORE DAWN

The steadfast, the truthful, the obedient, the givers, and those who seek forgiveness before dawn. (3:17)

The part of the night they spent asleep was small and they would seek forgiveness before the dawn. (51:17-18)

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


TIREDNESS

They will not be affected by any tiredness there and they will never be made to leave. (15:48)

When they had gone a distance further on, he (Musa) said to his servant, 'Bring us our morning meal. Truly this journey of ours has made us tired.' (18:62)

Everyone in the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. Those in His presence do not consider themselves too great to worship Him and do not grow tired of it. (21:19)

If they grow arrogant, those who are with your Lord glorify Him night and day and never grow tired. (41:38)

Man never tires of praying for the good and if evil touches him, he despairs and loses hope. (41:49)


TONGUE

Among them is a group who distort the Book with their tongues so that you think it is from the Book when it is not from the Book. They say, 'It is from Allah,' but it is not from Allah. They tell a lie against Allah and they know it. (3:78)

Some of the Jews distort the true meaning of words, saying, 'We hear and disobey,' and 'Listen without listening,' and 'Listen to us!' twisting them with their tongues, disparaging the religion. If they had said, 'We hear and we obey,' and 'Listen,' and, 'Look at us!' that would have been better for them and more upright. But Allah has cursed them for their disbelief. Very few of them believe. (4:46)

They have the word, 'Obedience!' on their tongues but when they leave your presence, a group of them spend the night plotting to do other than what you say. Allah is recording their nocturnal plotting. So let them be and put your trust in Allah. Allah suffices as a Guardian. (4:81)

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

Those among the tribe of Israel who disbelieved were cursed on the tongue of Dawud and that of 'Isa, son of Maryam. That is because they rebelled and overstepped the limits. (5:78)

If We had wanted to, We would have raised him up by them. But he gravitated towards the earth and pursued his whims and base desires. His metaphor is that of a dog: if you chase it away, it lolls out its tongue and pants, and if you leave it alone, it lolls out its tongue and pants. That is the metaphor of those who deny Our Signs. So tell the story so that hopefully they will reflect. (7:176)

They allot to Allah what they themselves dislike and their tongues frame the lie that they will receive the Best. There is no doubt at all that they will receive the Fire and that they are people who go to excess. (16:62)

Do not say about what your lying tongues describe: 'This is lawful and this is forbidden,' inventing lies against Allah. Those who invent lies against Allah are not successful. (16:116)

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

(Musa said, 'O Lord,) loosen the knot in my tongue.' (20:27)

You were bandying it about on your tongues, your mouths uttering something about which you had no knowledge. You considered it to be a trivial matter, but, in Allah's sight, it is immense. (24:15)

... they will have a terrible punishment on the Day when their tongues and hands and feet will testify against them about what they were doing. (24:23-24)

He (Musa) said, 'My Lord, I fear they will deny me and that my breast will be constricted and that my tongue will not be free, so send Harun as a Messenger as well.' (26:12-13)

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

Allah knows the obstructers among you and those who say to their brothers, 'Come to us,' and who only come to fight a very little, and are begrudging towards you. Then when fear comes, you see them looking at you, their eyes rolling like people scared to death. But when fear departs they flay you with sharp tongues, grasping for wealth. Such people have no faith and Allah will make their actions come to nothing. That is easy for Allah. (33:18-19)

If We had made it a Qur'an in a foreign tongue they would have said, 'Why have its Signs not been made plain? What! A foreign language for an Arab? 'Say: 'It is guidance and healing for people who believe. Those who do not believe have heaviness in their ears and for them it is blindness. Such people are being called from a very distant place.' (41:44)

We have made it easy in your own tongue so that hopefully they will pay heed. (44:58)

But before it there was the Book of Musa as a model and a mercy. And this is a corroborating Book in the Arabic tongue so that you may warn those who do wrong, and as good news for the good-doers. (46:12)

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

If they come upon you, they will be your enemies and stretch out their hands and tongues against you with evil intent, and they would dearly love you to disbelieve. (60:2)

Do not move your tongue trying to hasten it. Its collection and recitation are Our affair. (75:16-17)

Have We not given him two eyes, and a tongue and two lips? (90:8-9)


TORAH

Believe in what I have sent down, confirming what is with you (Torah). 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)

When a Book does come to them from Allah, confirming what is with them (Torah)-even though before that they were praying for victory over the disbelievers-yet when what they recognise does come to them, they reject it. Allah's curse is on the disbelievers. (2:89)

He has sent down the Book to you with truth, confirming what was there before it. And He sent down the Torah and the Gospel. (3:3)

He will teach him ('Isa) the Book and Wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel. (3:48)

('Isa said,) 'I come confirming the Torah I find already there, and to make lawful for you some of what was previously forbidden to you. I have brought you a Sign from your Lord. So have fear of Allah and obey me.' (3:50)

(Say,) 'People of the Book! Why do you argue concerning Ibrahim when the Torah and Gospel were only sent down after him? Why do you not use your intellect?' (3:65)

All food was lawful for the tribe of Israel except what Israel made unlawful for himself before the Torah was sent down. Say, 'Bring the Torah and read it out if you are telling the truth.' (3:93)

You who have been given the Book! Believe in what We have sent down confirming what is with you (the Torah and Gospel), before We obliterate faces, turning them inside out, or We curse you as We cursed the Companions of the Sabbath. Allah's command is always carried out. (4:47)

How can they make you their judge when they have the Torah with them which contains the judgement of Allah? Then even after that they turn their backs! Such people are certainly not believers. (5:43)

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)

We prescribed for them in it: a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and retaliation for wounds. But if anyone forgoes that as a charity, it will act as expiation for him. Those who do not judge by what Allah has sent down, such people are wrongdoers. (5:45)

And We sent 'Isa son of Maryam following in their footsteps, confirming the Torah that came before him. We gave him the Gospel containing guidance and light, confirming the Torah that came before it, and as guidance and admonition for those who guard against evil. (5:46)

If only they had implemented the Torah and the Gospel and what was sent down to them from their Lord (the Qur'an), they would have been fed from above their heads and beneath their feet. Among them there is a moderate group but what most of them do is evil. (5:66)

Say: 'People of the Book! You have nothing to stand on until you implement the Torah and the Gospel and what has been sent down to you from your Lord.' What has been sent down to you from your Lord increases many of them in insolence and disbelief. So do not waste your grief on the people of the disbelievers. (5:68)

Remember when Allah said, ''Isa, son of Maryam, remember My blessing to you and to your mother when I reinforced you with the Purest Spirit so that you could speak to people in the cradle and when you were fully grown; and when I taught you the Book and Wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you created a bird-shape out of clay by My permission, and then breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission; and healed the blind and the leper by My permission; and when you brought forth the dead by My permission; and when I held back the tribe of Israel from you, when you brought them the Clear Signs and those of them who disbelieved said, "This is nothing but downright magic"' (5:110)

... He said, 'As for My punishment, I strike with it anyone I will. My mercy extends to all things but I will prescribe it for those who guard againt evil and give the alms, and those who believe in Our Signs: those who follow the Messenger, the Ummi, whom they find written down with them in the Torah and the Gospel, commanding them to do right and forbidding them to do wrong, making good things lawful for them and bad things forbidden for them, relieving them of their heavy loads and the chains which were around them. Those who believe in him and honour him and help him, and follow the Light that has been sent down with him, they are the ones who are successful.' (7:156-157)

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)

Say: 'Bring a Book, then, from Allah which guides better than both of them (the Torah and the Qur'an) and follow it if you are telling the truth.' (28:49)

Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are fierce to the disbelievers, merciful to one another. You see them bowing and prostrating, seeking Allah's good favour and His pleasure. Their mark is on their faces, the traces of prostration. That is their likeness in the Torah. And their likeness in the Gospel is that of a seed which puts up a shoot and makes it strong so that it thickens and grows up straight upon its stalk, filling the sowers with delight-so that by them He may infuriate the disbelievers. Allah has promised those of them who believe and do right actions forgiveness and an immense reward. (48:29)

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

The metaphor of those who were charged with the Torah but then have not upheld it, is that of a donkey loaded with weighty tomes. How evil is the metaphor of those who deny Allah's Signs! Allah does not guide wrongdoing people. (62:5)
