- THE SEAL OF THE PROPHETS -
What Quran said about him?

Say: He is Allah, the One! • Allah, the eternally Besought of all! • He begets not nor was begotten. • And there is none comparable unto Him. [Surah Al-Ikhlas (Chapter of Sincerity), Verses 1-4]

Lo! We revealed it on the Night of Predestination. • Ah, what will convey unto you what the Night of Power is! • The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. • The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by the Permission of their Lord, with all decrees. • (The night is) Peace until the rising of the dawn.[Surah Al-Qadr (Chapter of Power), Verses 1-5]

Read: In the Name of your Lord Who creates, • Creates man from a clot. • Read: And your Lord is the Most Bounteous, • Who teaches by the Pen, • Teaches man that which he knew not. [Surah Al-Alaq (Chapter of the Blood-Clot), Verses 1-5]

Praise the Name of your Lord the Most High, • Who creates, then disposes; • Who measures, then guides; [Surah Al-A'la (Chapter of the Most High), Verses 1-3]
We shall make you read (O Muhammad) so that you shall not forget • Save that which Allah wills. Lo! He knows the disclosed and that which still is hidden; • And We shall ease your way unto the state of ease. • Therefore remind (men), for of use is the reminder.[Surah Al-A'la (Chapter of the Most High), Verses 6-9]

Remind them, for you are but a remembrancer, • You are not at all a warder over them. • But whoso is averse and disbelieves, • Allah will punish him with direst punishment. • Lo! Unto Us is their return • And Ours their reckoning.[Surah Al-Ghashiyah (Chapter of the Enveloper), Verses 21-26]

By the morning hours • And by the night when it is stillest, • your Lord has not forsaken you nor does He hate you, • And verily the latter portion will be better for you than the former, • And verily your Lord will give unto you so that you will be content. • Did He not find you an orphan and protect (you)? • Did He not find you wandering and direct (you)? • Did He not find you destitute and enrich (you)? • Therefore the orphan oppress not, • Therefore the beggar drive not away, • Therefore of the Bounty of your Lord be your discourse.[Surah Al-Duha (Chapter of the Forenoon), Verses 1-11]

Lo! We, even We, have revealed unto you the Qur'an, a Revelation; [Surah Al-Insan (Chapter of Man), Verse 23]

Remember the name of your Lord at morn and evening. • And worship Him (a portion) of the night. And glorify Him through the livelong night.[Surah Al-Insan (Chapter of Man), Verses 25-26]

That this is in truth the word of an honoured messenger, • Mighty, established in the presence of the Lord of the Throne, • (One) to be obeyed, and trustworthy; • And your comrade is not mad. • Surely he beheld Him on the clear horizon. [Surah Al-Taqwir (Chapter of the Darkening), Verses 19-23]

Nor is this the utterance of a devil worthy to be stoned. • Whither then go you? • This is naught else than a reminder unto creation, • Unto whomsoever of you wills to walk straight.[Surah Al-Taqwir (Chapter of the Darkening), Verses 25-28]

And when it is said unto them: Believe in that which Allah has revealed, they say: We believe in that which was revealed unto us. And they disbelieve in that which comes after it, though it is the truth confirming that which they possess. Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Why then slew you the prophets of Allah aforetime, if you are (indeed) believers?[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verse 91]

Say (O Muhammad, to mankind): Who is an enemy to Gabriel! For he it is who has revealed (this Scripture) to your heart by Allah's Leave, confirming that which was (revealed) before it, and a guidance and glad tidings to believers; • Who is an enemy to Allah, and His angels and His messengers, and Gabriel and Michael! Then, lo! Allah (Himself) is an enemy to the disbelievers. • Verily, We have revealed unto you clear tokens; and only miscreants will disbelieve in them.[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verses 97-99]

Or would you question your messenger as Moses was questioned aforetime? He who chooses disbelief instead of faith, verily he has gone astray from a plain road.[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verse 108]

Lo! We have sent you (O Muhammad) with the truth, a bringer of glad tidings and a warner. And you will not be asked about the owners of hell-fire.[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verse 119]

And they say: Be Jews or Christians, then you will be rightly guided. Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Nay, but (we follow) the religion of Abraham, the upright, and he was not of the idolaters.[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verse 135]

These are the portents of Allah which We recite unto you (Muhammad) with truth, and lo! You are of the number of (Our) messengers;[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verse 252]

The guiding of them is not your duty (O Muhammad), but Allah guides whom He will. And whatsoever good thing you spend, it is for yourselves, when you spend not save in search of Allah's Countenance; and whatsoever good thing you spend, it will be repaid to you in full, and you will not be wronged.[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verse 272]

The messenger believes in that which has been revealed unto him from his Lord and (so do) believers. Each one believes in Allah and His angels and His Scriptures and His Messengers - We make no distinction between any of His Messengers - and they say: We hear, and we obey. (Grant us) your Forgiveness, our Lord. Unto You is the journeying.[Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter of the Heifer), Verse 285]

Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If you love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.[Surah Al-Imran (Chapter of the Family of Imran), Verse 31]

Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. • And whoso seeks as religion other than the Surrender (to Allah) it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter.[Surah Al-Imran (Chapter of the Family of Imran), Verses 84-85]

Muhammad is but a messenger, messengers (the like of whom) have passed away before him. Will it be that, when he dies or is slain, you will turn back on your heels? He who turns back on his heels does no hurt to Allah, and Allah will reward the thankful.[Surah Al-Imran (Chapter of the Family of Imran), Verse 144]

And if they deny you, even so did they deny messengers who were before you, who came with miracles and with the Psalms and with the Scripture giving light.[Surah Al-Imran (Chapter of the Family of Imran), Verse 184]

Whoso obeys Allah and the messenger, they are with those unto whom Allah has shown favour, of the prophets and the saints and the martyrs and the righteous. The best of company are they! • That is Bounty from Allah, and Allah suffices as Knower.[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verses 69-70]

Will they not then ponder on the Qur'an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity.[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verse 82]

But for the grace of Allah upon you (Muhammad), and His Mercy, a party of them had resolved to mislead you, but they will mislead only themselves and they will hurt you not at all. Allah reveals unto you the Scripture and wisdom, and teaches you that which you knew not. The Grace of Allah toward you has been infinite.[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verse 113]

O you who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Scripture which He has revealed unto His Messenger, and the Scripture which He revealed aforetime. Whoso disbelieves in Allah and His Angels and His Scriptures and His Messengers and the Last Day, he verily has wandered far astray.[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verse 136]

Lo! We inspire you as We inspired Noah and the prophets after him, as We inspired Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon, and as We imparted unto David the Psalms;[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verse 163]

… Allah (Himself) testifies concerning that which He has revealed unto you; in His Knowledge has He revealed it; and the angels also testify. And Allah is Sufficient Witness.[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verse 166]

O mankind! The messenger has come unto you with the Truth from your Lord. Therefore believe; (it is) better for you. But if you disbelieve, still, lo! Unto Allah belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth. Allah is ever Knower, Wise.[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verse 170]

As for those who believe in Allah, and hold fast unto Him, them He will cause to enter into His Mercy and Grace, and will guide them unto Him by a straight road.[Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of Women), Verse 175]

Whereby Allah guides him who seeks His good pleasure unto paths of peace. He brings them out of darkness unto light by His Decree, and guides them unto a straight path.[Surah Al-Ma'idah (Chapter of the Repast), Verse 16]

The Jews and Christians say: We are sons of Allah and His loved ones. Say: Why then does He chastise you for your sins? Nay, you are but mortals of His creating. He forgives whom He will, and chastises whom He will. Allah's is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them; and unto Him is the journeying. • O People of the Scripture! Now has Our messenger come unto you to make things plain unto you after an interval (of cessation) of the messengers, lest you should say: There came not unto us a messenger of cheer nor any warner. Now has a messenger of cheer and a warner come unto you. Allah is Able to do all things.[Surah Al-Ma'idah (Chapter of the Repast), Verses 18-19]

And unto you have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it. So judge between them by that which Allah has revealed, and follow not their desires away from the Truth which has come unto you. For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced-out way. Had Allah willed He could have made you one community. But that He may try you by that which He has given you (He has made you as you are). So vie one with another in good works. Unto Allah you will all return, and He will then inform you of that wherein you differ.[Surah Al-Ma'idah (Chapter of the Repast), Verse 48]

Your guardian can be only Allah; and His Messenger and those who believe, who establish worship and pay the poor-due, and bow down (in prayer). • And whoso takes Allah and His Messenger and those who believe for guardian (will know that), lo! The party of Allah, they are the victorious.[Surah Al-Ma'idah (Chapter of the Repast), Verses 55-56]

If only the People of the Scripture would believe and ward off (evil), surely We should remit their sins from them and surely We should bring them into Gardens of Delight. • If they had observed the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto them from their Lord, they would surely have been nourished from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them there are people who are moderate, but many of them are of evil conduct. • O Messenger! Make known that which has been revealed unto you from your Lord, for if you do it not, you will not have conveyed His Message. Allah will protect you from mankind. Lo! Allah guides not the disbelieving folk. • Say O People of the Scripture! You have naught (of guidance) till you observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto you from your Lord. That which is revealed unto you (Muhammad) from your Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them. But grieve not for the disbelieving folk.[Surah Al-Ma'idah (Chapter of the Repast), Verses 65-68]

Say (O Muhammad): What thing is of most weight in testimony? Say: Allah is Witness between me and you. And this Qur'an has been inspired in me, that I may warn therewith you and whomsoever it may reach. Do you in sooth bear witness that there are gods beside Allah? Say: I bear no such witness. Say: He is only One Allah. Lo! I am innocent of that which you associate (with Him). • Those unto whom We gave the Scripture recognise (this Revelation) as they recognise their sons. Those who ruin their own souls will not believe. • Who does greater wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah or denies His Revelations? Lo! The wrongdoers will not be successful.[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verses 19-21]

We know well how their talk grieves you, though in truth they deny not you (Muhammad) but evil-doers flout the Revelations of Allah. • Messengers indeed have been denied before you, and they were patient under the denial and the persecution till Our succour reached them. There is none to alter the decisions of Allah. Already there has reached you (somewhat) of the tidings of the messengers (We sent before).[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verses 33-34]

Only those can accept who hear. As for the dead, Allah will raise them up; then unto Him they will be returned. • They say: Why has no portent been sent down upon him from his Lord? Say: Lo! Allah is Able to send down a portent. But most of them know not.[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verses 36-37]

We send not the messengers save as bearers of good news and warners. Whoso believes and does right, there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. • But as for those who deny Our Revelations, torment will afflict them for that they used to disobey. • Say (O Muhammad, to the disbelievers): I say not unto you (that) I possess the treasures of Allah, nor that I have knowledge of the Unseen; and I say not unto you: Lo! I am an angel. I follow only that which is inspired in me. Say: Are the blind man and the seer equal? Will you not then take thought?[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verses 48-50]

Say: I am forbidden to worship those on whom you call instead of Allah. Say: I will not follow your desires, for then should I go astray and I should not be of the rightly guided.[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verse 56]

And with Him are the keys of the Invisible. None but He knows them. And He knows what is in the land and the sea. Not a leaf falls but He knows it, not a grain amid the darkness of the earth, naught of wet or dry but (it is noted) in a clear record.[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verse 59]

And this is a Blessed Scripture which We have revealed, confirming that which (was revealed) before it, that you may warn the Mother of Villages and those around her. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe herein, and they are careful of their worship.[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verse 92]

Follow that which is inspired in you from your Lord; there is no Allah save Him; and turn away from the idolaters.[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verse 106]

Say: Lo! As for me, my Lord has guided me unto a straight path, a right religion, the community of Abraham, the upright, who was no idolater. • Say: Lo! My worship and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the Worlds. • He has no partner. This am I commanded, and I am first of those who surrender (unto Him).[Surah Al-An'am (Chapter of Cattle), Verses 161-163]

Verily, We have brought them a Scripture which We expounded with knowledge, a guidance and a mercy for a people who believe.[Surah Al-A'raf (Chapter of the Battlements), Verse 52]

Lo! Your Lord is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days; then mounted He the Throne. He covers the night with the day, which is in haste to follow it, and has made the sun and the moon and the stars subservient by His command. His verily is all creation and commandment. Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds![Surah Al-A'raf (Chapter of the Battlements), Verse 54]

There has come unto you a messenger, (one) of yourselves, unto whom aught that you are overburdened is grievous, full of concern for you, for the believers full of pity, merciful. • Now, if they turn away (O Muhammad) say: Allah suffices me. There is no Allah save Him. In Him have I put my trust, and He is Lord of the Tremendous Throne.[Surah Al-Tawbah (Chapter of Repentance), Verse 129]

And when Our clear Revelations are recited unto them, they who look not for the meeting with Us say: Bring a Lecture other than this, or change it. Say (O Muhammad): It is not for me to change it of my accord. I only follow that which is inspired in me. Lo! If I disobey my Lord I fear the retribution of an awful Day. • Say: If Allah had so willed I should not have recited it to you nor would He have made it known to you. I dwelt among you a whole lifetime before it (came to me). Have you then no sense? • Who does greater wrong than he who invents a lie concerning Allah and denies His Revelations? Lo! The guilty never are successful.[Surah Yunus (Chapter of Jonah), Verses 15-17]

And this Qur'an is not such as could ever be invented in despite of Allah; but it is a confirmation of that which was before it and an exposition of that which is decreed for mankind - Therein is no doubt - from the Lord of the Worlds. • Or say they: He has invented it? Say: Then bring a surah like unto it, and call (for help) on all you can besides Allah, if you are truthful. • Nay, but they denied that, the knowledge whereof they could not compass, and whereof the interpretation (in events) has not yet come unto them. Even so did those before them deny. Then see what was the consequence for the wrong-doers! • And of them is he who believes therein, and of them is he who believes not therein, and your Lord is Best Aware of the corrupters. • And if they deny you, say: Unto me my work; and unto you your work. You are innocent of what I do; and I am innocent of what you do. • And of them are some who listen unto you. But can you make the deaf to hear even though they apprehend not? • And of them is he who looks toward you. But can you guide the blind even though they see not? • Lo! Allah wrongs not mankind in aught; but mankind wrong themselves.[Surah Yunus (Chapter of Jonah), Verses 37-44]

And for every nation there is a messenger. And when their messenger comes (on the Day of Judgment) it will be judged between them fairly, and they will not be wronged.[Surah Yunus (Chapter of Jonah), Verse 47]

And you (Muhammad) are not occupied with any business and you recite not a Lecture from this (Scripture), and you (mankind) perform no act, but We are Witness of you when you are engaged therein. And not an atom's weight in the earth or in the sky escapes your Lord, nor what is less than that or greater than that, but it is (written) in a clear Book.[Surah Yunus (Chapter of Jonah), Verse 61]

Say (O Muhammad): O mankind! If you are in doubt of my Religion, then (know that) I worship not those whom you worship instead of Allah, but I worship Allah Who causes you to die, and I have been commanded to be of the believers. • And, (O Muhammad) set your purpose resolutely for religion, as a man by nature upright; and be not of those who ascribe partners (to Allah). • And cry not, beside Allah, unto that which cannot profit You nor hurt you, for if you did so then were you of the wrong-doers. • If Allah afflicts you with some hurt, there is none who can remove it save Him; and if He desires good for you, there is none who can repel His Bounty. He strikes with it whom He will of his bondmen. He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. • Say: O mankind! Now has the Truth from your Lord come unto you. So whosoever is guided, is guided only for (the good of) his soul, and whosoever errs errs only against it. And I am not a warder over you. • And (O Muhammad) follow that which is inspired in you, and forbear until Allah gives judgment. And He is the Best of Judges.[Surah Yunus (Chapter of Jonah), Verses 104-109]

Alif. Lam. Ra. (This is) a Scripture the revelations whereof are perfected and then expounded. (It comes) from One Wise, Informed, • (Saying): Serve none but Allah. Lo! I am unto you from Him a warner and a bringer of good tidings.[Surah Hud (Chapter of Hud), Verses 1-2]

Or they say: He has invented it. Say: Then bring ten Surahs, the like thereof, invented, and call on everyone you can beside Allah, if you are truthful! • And if they answer not your prayer, then know that it is revealed only in the Knowledge of Allah; and that there is no Allah save Him. Will you then be (of) those who surrender?[Surah Hud (Chapter of Hud), Verses 13-14]

So tread you the straight path as you are commanded, and those who turn (unto Allah) with you, and transgress not. Lo! He is Seer of what you do. • And incline not toward those who do wrong lest the Fire touch you, and you have no protecting friends against Allah, and afterward you would not be helped. • Establish worship at the two ends of the day and in some watches of the night. Lo! Good deeds annul ill-deeds. This is reminder for the mindful.[Surah Hud (Chapter of Hud), Verses 112-114]

And all that We relate unto you of the story of the messengers is in order that thereby We may make firm your heart. And herein has come unto you the Truth and an exhortation and a reminder for believers.[Surah Hud (Chapter of Hud), Verse 120]

Say: This is my Way: I call on Allah with sure knowledge. I and whosoever follows me - Glory be to Allah! - and I am not of the idolaters.[Surah Yusuf (Chapter of Joseph), Verse 108]

Say (O Muhammad): Who is Lord of the heavens and the earth? Say: Allah. Say: Take you then (others) beside Him for protectors, which, even for themselves, have neither benefit nor hurt? Say: Is the blind man equal to the seer, or is darkness equal to light? Or assign they unto Allah partners who created the like of His creation so that the creation (which they made and His creation) seemed alike to them? Say: Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Almighty.[Surah Al-Ra'd (Chapter of Thunder), Verse 16]

Is he who knows that what is revealed unto you from your Lord is the truth like him who is blind? But only men of understanding heed;[Surah Al-Ra'd (Chapter of Thunder), Verse 19]

They who disbelieve say: you are no messenger (of Allah). Say: Allah, and whosoever has knowledge of the Scripture, is Sufficient Witness between me and you.[Surah Al-Ra'd (Chapter of Thunder), Verse 43]

… This is a Scripture which We have revealed unto you (Muhammad) that thereby you may bring forth mankind from darkness unto light, by the Permission of their Lord, unto the Path of the Mighty, the Owner of Praise, • Allah, unto Whom belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. And woe unto the disbelievers from an awful doom;[Surah Ibrahim (Chapter of Abraham), Verses 1-2]

And (bethink you of) the day when We raise in every nation a witness against them of their own folk, and We bring you (Muhammad) as a witness against these. And We reveal the Scripture unto you as an exposition of all things, and a guidance and a mercy and good tidings for those who have surrendered (to Allah). • Lo! Allah enjoins justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk, and forbids lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorts you in order that you may take heed.[Surah Al-Nahl (Chapter of the Bee), Verses 89-90]

Say: Verily, though mankind and the jinn should assemble to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like thereof though they were helpers one of another. • And verily We have displayed for mankind in this Qur'an all kinds of similitude, but most of mankind refuse aught save disbelief.[Surah Al-Isra (Chapter of the Night Journey), Verses 88-89]

Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said: Our Lord is Allah - For had it not been for Allah's repelling some men by means of others, cloisters and churches and oratories and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is oft mentioned, would assuredly have been pulled down.

He it is Who created you from dust, then from a drop (of seed) then from a clot, then brings you forth as a child, then (ordains) that you attain full strength and afterward that you become old men - though some among you die before - and that you reach an appointed term, that haply you may understand. • He it is Who quickens and gives death. When He ordains a thing, He says unto it only: Be! And it is. [Surah Ghafir (Chapter of the Believers), Verses 67-68]

And that which they were wont to mock befell them. • Then, when they saw Our doom, they said: We believe in Allah only and reject (all) that we used to associate (with Him). • But their faith could not avail them when they saw Our doom. This is Allah's law which has ever taken course for His bondmen. And then the disbelievers will be ruined. [Surah Ghafir (Chapter of the Believers), Verses 83-85]

A revelation from the Beneficent, the Merciful, • A Scripture whereof the verses are expounded, a Lecture in Arabic for people who have knowledge, • Good tidings and a warning. But most of them turn away so that they hear not.[Surah Fussilat (Chapter of Distinguished), Verse 2-4]

Say (unto them O Muhammad): I am only a mortal like you. It is inspired in me that your Allah is One Allah, therefore take the straight path unto Him and seek forgiveness of Him. And woe unto the idolaters, • Who give not the poor-due, and who are disbelievers in the Hereafter. • Lo! As for those who believe and do good works, for them is a reward enduring. • Say (O Muhammad, unto the idolaters): Disbelieve you verily in Him Who created the earth in two Days, and ascribe you unto Him rivals? He (and none else) is the Lord of the Worlds. • He placed therein firm hills rising above it, and blessed it and measured therein its sustenance in four Days, alike for (all) who ask; • Then turned He to the heaven when it was smoke, and said unto it and unto the earth: Come both of you, willingly or loth. They said: We come, obedient. • Then He ordained them seven heavens in two Days and inspired in each heaven its mandate; and We decked the nether heaven with lamps, and rendered it inviolable.

Lo! Allah, He is the Forgiver, the Merciful.[Surah Al-Shurah (Chapter of Counsel), Verses 3-5]

And thus We have inspired in you a Lecture in Arabic, that you may warn the mother-town and those around it, and may warn of a day of assembling whereof there is no doubt. A host will be in the Garden, and a host of them in the Flame. • Had Allah willed, He could have made them one community, but Allah brings whom He will into His Mercy. And the wrong-doers have no friend, nor helper. • Or have they chosen protecting friends besides Him? But Allah, He (alone) is the Protecting Friend. He quickens the dead, and He is Able to do all things. • And in whatsoever you differ, the verdict therein belongs to Allah. Such is my Lord, in Whom I put my trust, and unto Whom I turn. • The Creator of the heavens and the earth.

But if they are averse, We have not sent you as a warder over them. Yours is only to convey (the message). And lo! When We cause man to taste of mercy from Us he exults therefor. And if some evil strikes them because of that which their own hands have sent before, then lo! Man is an ingrate. [Surah Al-Shurah (Chapter of Counsel), Verse 48]

And it was not (vouchsafed) to any mortal that Allah should speak to him unless (it is) by revelation or from behind a veil, or (that) He sends a messenger to reveal what He will by His leave. Lo! He is Exalted, Wise. • And thus have We inspired in you (Muhammad) a Spirit of Our Command. You knew not what the Scripture was, nor what the Faith.

Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Have you thought on all that you invoke beside Allah? Show me what they have created of the earth. Or have they any portion in the heavens? Bring me a scripture before this (Scripture), or some vestige of knowledge (in support of what you say), if you are truthful. • And who is further astray than those who, instead of Allah, pray unto such as hear not their prayer until the Day of Resurrection, and are unconscious of their prayer, • And when mankind are gathered (to the Judgment) will become enemies for them, and will become deniers of having been worshipped. [Surah Al-Ahqaf (Chapter of the Sand-Dunes), Verses 4-6]

Those who say: Our Lord is Allah, and thereafter walk aright, there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. • Such are rightful owners of the Garden, immortal therein, as a reward for what they used to do. [Surah Al-Ahqaf (Chapter of the Sand-Dunes), Verses 9-14]

We have heard a scripture which has been revealed after Moses, confirming that which was before it, guiding unto the truth and a right road. • O our people! Respond to Allah's summoner and believe in Him. He will forgive you some of your sins and guard you from a painful doom. • And whoso responds not to Allah's summoner he can no wise escape in the earth, and he has no protecting friends instead of Him. Such are in error manifest. • Have they not seen that Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth and was not wearied by their creation, is Able to give life to the dead? Aye, He verily is Able to do all things. [Surah Al-Ahqaf (Chapter of the Sand-Dunes), Verses 29-33]

We have sent you (O Muhammad) as a witness and a bearer of good tidings and a warner, • That you (mankind) may believe in Allah and His messenger, and may honour Him, and may revere Him, and may glorify Him at early dawn and at the close of day. • Lo! Those who swear allegiance unto you (Muhammad), swear allegiance only unto Allah. The Hand of Allah is above their hands.

And so for him who believes not in Allah and His Messenger - Lo! We have prepared a flame for disbelievers. • And Allah's is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth.

He it is Who has sent His Messenger with the Guidance and the Religion of Truth, that He may cause it to prevail over all religion. And Allah suffices as a Witness. • Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves. You (O Muhammad) see them bowing and falling prostrate (in worship), seeking bounty from Allah and (His) Acceptance. The mark of them is on their foreheads from the traces of prostration. Such is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel - like as sown corn that sends forth its shoot and strengthens it and rises firm upon its stalk, delighting the sowers - that He may enrage the disbelievers with (the sight of) them. Allah has promised, unto such of them as believe and do good works, forgiveness and immense reward. [Surah Al-Fath (Chapter of Victory), Verses 28-29]

And woe unto those who disbelieve, from (that) their day which they are promised. [Surah Al-Dhariyah (Chapter of the Scatterers), Verse 60]

Therefore warn (men, O Muhammad). By the Grace of Allah you are neither soothsayer nor madman. • Or say they: (he is) a poet, (one) for whom we may expect the accident of time?[Surah Al-Tur (Chapter of the Mount), Verses 29-30]

Or say they: He has invented it? Nay, but they will not believe! • Then let them produce speech the like thereof, if they are truthful. • Or were they created out of naught? Or are they the creators? • Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, but they are sure of nothing! • Or do they own the treasures of your Lord? Or have they been given charge (thereof)? [Surah Al-Tur (Chapter of the Mount), Verses 33-37]

So wait patiently (O Muhammad) for your Lord's Decree, for surely you are in Our Sight; and hymn the praise of your Lord when you uprise, • And in the night-time also hymn His praise, and at the setting of the stars. [Surah Al-Tur (Chapter of the Mount), Verses 48-49]

By the Star when it sets, • Your comrade errs not, nor is deceived; • Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. • It is naught save an inspiration that is inspired, • Which one of mighty powers has taught him, • One vigorous; and he grew clear to view • When he was on the uppermost horizon. • Then he drew nigh and came down • Till he was (distant) two bows' length or even nearer, • And He revealed unto His slave that which He revealed.[Surah Al-Najm (Chapter of the Star), Verses 1-10]

And verily he saw him yet another time • By the lote-tree of the utmost boundary, • Nigh unto which is the Garden of Abode. • When that which shrouds did enshroud the lote-tree, [Surah Al-Najm (Chapter of the Star), Verses 13-16]

Verily he saw one of the greater Revelations of his Lord. [Surah Al-Najm (Chapter of the Star), Verse 18]

That (this) is indeed a Noble Qur'an • In a Book kept hidden • Which none touches save the purified, • A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. [Surah Al-Waqi'ah (Chapter of the Terror), Verses 77-80]

Therefore (O Muhammad) praise the Name of your Lord, the Tremendous.[Surah Al-Waqi'ah (Chapter of the Terror), Verse 96]

All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah; and He is the Mighty, the Wise. • His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth; He quickens and He gives death; and He is Able to do all things. • He is the First and the Last, and the Outward and the Inward; and He is Knower of all things.[Surah Al-Hadid (Chapter of Iron), Verses 1-3]

He causeth the night to pass into the day, and He causes the day to pass into the night, and He is Knower of all that is in the breasts. [Surah Al-Hadid (Chapter of Iron), Verse 6]

What ails you that you believe not in Allah, when the messenger calls you to believe in your Lord, and He has already made a covenant with you, if you are believers? • He it is Who sends down clear revelations unto His slave that He may bring you forth from darkness unto light; and lo! For you, Allah is Full of Pity, Merciful. [Surah Al-Hadid (Chapter of Iron), Verses 8-9]

And those who believe in Allah and His Messengers, they are the loyal, and the martyrs are with their Lord; they have their reward and their light; while as for those who disbelieve and deny Our Revelations, they are owners of hell-fire. [Surah Al-Hadid (Chapter of Iron), Verse 19]

Race one with another for forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden whereof the breadth is as the breadth of the heavens and the earth, which is in store for those who believe in Allah and His messengers.

That is easy for Allah - • That you grieve not for the sake of that which has escaped you, nor yet exult because of that which has been given. Allah loves not all prideful boasters, [Surah Al-Hadid (Chapter of Iron), Verses 21-23]

O you who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah and put faith in His Messenger. He will give you twofold of His Mercy and will appoint for you a light wherein you shall walk, and will forgive you. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful; [Surah Al-Hadid (Chapter of Iron), Verse 28]

Lo! Those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, they will be among the lowest. • Allah has decreed: Lo! I verily shall conquer, I and My Messengers. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty.[Surah Al-Mujadilah (Chapter of the Disputer), Verses 20-21]

If We had caused this Qur'an to descend upon a mountain, you (O Muhammad) verily had seen it humbled, rent asunder by the fear of Allah. Such similitudes coin We for mankind that haply they may reflect. • He is Allah, than Whom there is no other Allah, the Knower of the Invisible and the Visible. He is the Beneficent, Merciful. • He is Allah, than Whom there is no other Allah, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, Peace, the Keeper of Faith, the Guardian, the Majestic, the Compeller, the Superb.
