In the Name of Allh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Extracts from this document...


In the Name of All�h, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. 1. O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgement) is a terrible thing. 2. The Day you shall see it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling, and every pregnant one will drop her load, and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the Torment of All�h. 3. And among mankind is he who disputes concerning All�h, without knowledge, and follows every rebellious (disobedient to All�h) Shait�n (devil) (devoid of each and every kind of good). 4. For him (the devil) it is decreed that whosoever follows him, he will mislead him, and will drive him to the torment of the Fire. 5. O mankind! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then verily! We have created you (i.e. Adam) from dust, then from a Nutfah (mixed male and female sexual discharge i.e. offspring of Adam), then from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) then from a little lump of flesh, some formed and some unformed (miscarriage), that We may make (it) clear to you (i.e. to show you Our Power and Ability to do what We will). And We cause whom We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed term, then We bring you out as infants, then (give you growth) that you may reach your age of full strength. And among you there is he who dies (young), and among you there is he who is brought back to the miserable old age, so that he knows nothing after having known. And you see the earth barren, but when We send down water (rain) on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells and puts forth every lovely kind (of growth). 6. That is because All�h, He is the Truth, and it is He Who gives life to the dead, and it is He Who is Able to do all things. ...read more.


But your god is One God: submit then your wills to Him (in Islam). And give glad tidings to the Mukhbitin (those who humble themselves), 35. Whose hearts are filled with fear when All�h is mentioned; who patiently bear whatever may befall them (of calamities); and who perform AsSal�t (Iq�mat-as-Sal�t i.e. The Prayer), and who spend (in All�h's Cause) out of what We have provided them. 36. And the Budn (cows, oxen, or camels driven to be offered as sacrifices by the pilgrims at the sanctuary of Makkah.) We have made for you as among the Symbols of All�h, therein you have much good. So mention the Name of All�h over them when they are drawn up in lines (for sacrifice). Then, when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat thereof, and feed the beggar who does not ask (men), and the beggar who asks (men). Thus have We made them subject to you that you may be grateful. 37. It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches All�h, but it is piety from you that reaches Him. Thus have We made them subject to you that you may magnify All�h for His Guidance to you. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad SAW) to the Muhsin�n (doers of good). 38. Truly, All�h defends those who believe. Verily! All�h likes not any treacherous ingrate to All�h. 39. Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, All�h is Able to give them (believers) victory 40. Those who have been expelled from their homes unjustly only because they said: "Our Lord is All�h." - For had it not been that All�h checks one set of people by means of another, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein the Name of All�h is mentioned much would surely have been pulled down. ...read more.


there is no helper. 72. And when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, you will notice a denial on the faces of the disbelievers! They are nearly ready to attack with violence those who recite Our Verses to them. Say: "Shall I tell you of something worse than that? The Fire (of Hell) which All�h has promised to those who disbelieve, and worst indeed is that destination!" 73. O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! Those on whom you call besides All�h, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought. 74. They have not estimated All�h His Rightful Estimate; Verily, All�h is All-Strong, All-Mighty. 75. All�h chooses Messengers from angels and from men. Verily, All�h is All-Hearer, All-Seer. 76. He knows what is before them, and what is behind them. And to All�h return all matters (for decision). 77. O you who believe! Bow down, and prostrate yourselves, and worship your Lord and do good that you may be successful. 78. And strive hard in All�h's Cause as you ought to strive (with sincerity and with all your efforts that His Name should be superior). He has chosen you, and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship, it is the religion of your father Ibrahim (Abraham). It is He (All�h) Who has named you Muslims both before and in this (the Qur'�n), that the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) may be a witness over you and you be witnesses over mankind! So perform AsSal�t (Iqamat-as-Sal�t), give Zak�t and hold fast to All�h [i.e. have confidence in All�h, and depend upon Him in all your affairs] He is your Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.), what an Excellent Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.) and what an Excellent Helper! ...read more.
