The Glorious Qur'an

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

IT IS A REVELATION FROM ALLAH

Falsehood cannot reach it from before it or behind it–it (the Qur'an) is a revelation from One Who is All-Wise, Praiseworthy. (Qur'an, 41:42)

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

Truly it is revelation sent down by the Lord of all the worlds. (Qur'an, 26:192)

This Qur'an could never have been devised by any besides Allah. Rather it is confirmation of what came before it and an elucidation of the Book which contains no doubt from the Lord of all the worlds. Do they say, 'He has invented it'? Say: 'Then produce a sura like it and call on anyone you can besides Allah if you are telling the truth.' (Qur'an, 10:37-38)

The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Almighty, the All-Wise. (Qur'an, 39:1)

It is not the word of a poet—how little faith you have! Nor the word of a fortune-teller—how little heed you pay! It is a revelation from the Lord of all the worlds. (Qur'an, 69:41-43)

The revelation of the Book, without any doubt of it, is from the Lord of the worlds. Or do they say, 'He has invented it'? No indeed! It is the truth from your Lord to warn a people to whom, before you, no warner came, so that hopefully they will be guided. (Qur'an, 32:2-3)

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

Say: 'If both men and jinn banded together to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could never produce anything like it, even if they backed each other up.' (Qur'an, 17:88) 

IT HAS BEEN TAUGHT BY THE ARCHANGEL GABRIEL

It is nothing but Revelation revealed, taught him by (Gabriel) one immensely strong. (Qur'an, 53:4-5)

Then He revealed to His servant what He revealed. (Qur'an, 53:10)

Truly it (the Qur'an) is revelation sent down by the Lord of all the worlds. The Faithful Spirit brought it down to your heart so you would be one of the Warners (Qur'an, 26:192-194)

IT HAS BEEN SENT DOWN IN ARABIC

We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an so that hopefully you will use your intellect. (Qur'an, 12:2)

Accordingly We have sent it down as a judgement in Arabic. If you followed their whims and desires after the knowledge that has come to you, you would have no protector or defender against Allah. (Qur'an, 13:37)

A Book whose verses have been demarcated for people who know as an Arabic Qur'an. (Qur'an, 41:3)

ITS REVELATION CONTAINS MUCH WISDOM

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

On that Day We will raise up among every community a witness against them from amongst themselves, and bring you as a witness against them. We have sent down the Book to you making all things clear and as guidance and mercy and good news for the Muslims. (Qur'an, 16:89)

Say: 'The Purest Spirit has brought it down from your Lord with truth, to make those who believe firm, and as guidance and good news for the Muslims.' (Qur'an, 16:102)

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

This (the Qur'an) is a communication to be transmitted to mankind so that they may be warned by it and so that they will know that He is One God and so that people of intelligence will pay heed. (Qur'an, 14:52)

We have only sent down the Book to you so that you can make clear to them the things about which they differ, and as a guidance and a mercy to people who believe. (Qur'an, 16:64)

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

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.' (Qur'an, 6:19)

It is (a) straight (Book), to warn of violent force direct from Him, and to give the good news to the believers, those who do right actions, that for them there is an excellent reward. (Qur'an, 18:2)

(The Qur'an is revealed) so that you may warn those who are truly alive and so that the Word may be carried out against the unbelievers. (Qur'an, 36:70)

Those are the Signs of the Wise Book–guidance and mercy for the good-doers. (Qur'an, 31:2-3)

(We have sent those) 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. (Qur'an, 16:44)

IT IS A GUIDE AND A WARNING FOR MANKIND

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.' (Qur'an, 6:19)

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

This (the Qur'an) is a communication to be transmitted to mankind so that they may be warned by it and so that they will know that He is One God and so that people of intelligence will pay heed. (Qur'an, 14:52)

We have made things clear in this Qur'an so that they might pay heed, but it only makes them run away the more! (Qur'an, 17:41)

It (the Qur'an) is a Book We have sent down to you, full of blessing, so let people of intelligence ponder its Signs and take heed. (Qur'an, 38:29)

But (We have revealed it) only as a reminder for those who guard against evil. (Qur'an, 20:3)

This (the Qur'an) is a clear explanation for all mankind, and guidance and admonition for those who guard against evil. (Qur'an, 3:138)

We have sent down Clear Signs to you and the example of those who passed away before you and an admonition for those who guard against evil. (Qur'an, 24:34)

This (the Qur'an) is a Book We have sent down and blessed, confirming what came before it, so that you can warn the Mother of Cities (Makka) and the people around it. Those who believe in the hereafter believe in it and safeguard their prayer. (Qur'an, 6:92)

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

ITS LIKE CAN IN NO WAY BE INVENTED 

Do they say, 'He has invented it'? Say: 'Then produce a sura like it and call on anyone you can besides Allah if you are telling the truth.' (Qur'an, 10:38)

Say: 'If both men and jinn banded together to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could never produce anything like it, even if they backed each other up.' (Qur'an, 17:88)

IT IS MENTIONED IN THE SCRIPTURES OF PREVIOUS PEOPLES

It (the Qur'an) is certainly in the scriptures of the previous peoples. (Qur'an, 26:196)

IT IS UNDER THE PRESERVATION OF ALLAH

The Words of your Lord are perfect in truthfulness and justice. No one can change His Words. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 6:115)

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

(It is) in a well protected Book. (Qur'an, 56:78)

Falsehood cannot reach it from before it or behind it–it (the Qur'an) is a revelation from One Who is All-Wise, Praiseworthy. (Qur'an, 41:42)

IT IS THE FUNDAMENTAL REFERENCE SOURCE

Do they then seek the judgement of the Time of Ignorance? Who could be better at giving judgement than Allah for people with certainty? (Qur'an, 5:50)

We have sent down the Book to you with the truth so that you can judge between people according to what Allah has shown to you. But do not be an advocate for the treacherous. (Qur'an, 4:105)

And We have sent down the Book to you (Muhammad) with truth, confirming and conserving the previous Books. So judge between them by what Allah has sent down and do not follow their whims and desires deviating from the Truth that has come to you. We have appointed a law and a practice for every one of you. Had  Allah willed, He would have made you a single community, but He wanted to test you regarding what has come to you. So compete with each other in doing good. Every one of you will return to Allah and He will inform you regarding the things about which you differed. Judge between them by what Allah has sent down and do not follow their whims and desires. And beware of them lest they lure you away from some of what Allah has sent down to you. If they turn their backs, then know that Allah wants to afflict them with some of their wrong actions. Many of mankind are deviators. (Qur'an, 5:48-49)

IT IS CLEAR AND EXPLICIT

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

'Am I to desire someone other than Allah as a judge when it is He Who has sent down the Book to you clarifying everything?' Those We have given the Book know it has been sent down from your Lord with truth, so on no account be among the doubters. (Qur'an, 6:114)

In this way We have sent it (the Qur'an) down as Clear Signs.    Allah guides anyone He wills. (Qur'an, 22:16)

Allah makes the Signs clear to you and Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Qur'an, 24:18)

ITS VERSES ARE ALL MADE CLEAR

In that way We make the Signs plain so that you may clearly see the path of the evildoers. (Qur'an, 6:55)

It is He Who has appointed the stars for you so you might be guided by them in the darkness of the land and sea. We have made the Signs clear for people who have knowledge. (Qur'an, 6:97)

This is the path of your Lord— straight. We have made the Signs clear for people who remember. (Qur'an, 6:126)

Say: 'He possesses the power to send you punishment from above your heads or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you in sects and make you taste one another's violence.' Look how We vary the Signs so that hopefully they will understand. (Qur'an, 6:65)

Alif, Lam, Ra. A Book whose verses are perfectly constructed, and then demarcated, coming directly from One Who is All-Wise, All-Aware. (Qur'an, 11:1)

IT HAS BEEN SENT DOWN PIECE BY PIECE

It is We Who have sent the Qur'an down to you little by little. (Qur'an, 76:23)

IT IS A LIGHT OF ALLAH

They desire to extinguish Allah's Light with their mouths but Allah will perfect His Light, though the unbelievers hate it. (Qur'an, 61:8)

People of the Book! Our Messenger has come to you, making clear to you much of the Book that you have kept concealed, and passing over a lot. A Light has come to you from Allah and a Clear Book. (Qur'an, 5:15)

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. (Qur'an, 42:52)

"So believe in Allah and His Messenger and in the Light (the Qur'an) We have sent down. Allah is aware of what you do." (Qur'an, 64:8)

Mankind! A clear proof has come to you from your Lord. We have sent down a Clear Light (the Qur'an) to you. (Qur'an, 4:174)

IT IS A GUIDE, MERCY AND
HEALING FOR THE BELIEVERS

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. (Qur'an, 7:203)

Mankind! Admonition has come to you from your Lord and also healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers. (Qur'an, 10:57)

On that Day We will raise up among every community a witness against them from amongst themselves, and bring you as a witness against them. We have sent down the Book to you making all things clear and as guidance and mercy and good news for the Muslims. (Qur'an, 16:89)

We have only sent down the Book to you so that you can make clear to them the things about which they differ, and as a guidance and a mercy to people who believe. (Qur'an, 16:64)

We send down in the Qur'an that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers, but it only increases the wrongdoers in loss. (Qur'an, 17:82)

You did not expect to be given the Book. It is nothing but a mercy from your Lord. So do not lend support to the unbelievers. (Qur'an, 28:86)

Certainly it is guidance and a mercy for the believers. (Qur'an, 27:77)

Guidance and mercy for the good-doers. (Qur'an, 31:3)

This is clear insight for mankind and guidance and mercy for people with certainty. (Qur'an, 45:20)

IT IS THE SUPREME DISCOURSE

They have been guided to the purest of speeches and guided to the praiseworthy path. (Qur'an, 22:24)

Allah has sent down the Supreme Discourse, a Book consistent in its frequent repetitions. The skins of those who fear their Lord tremble at it and then their skins and hearts yield softly to the remembrance of Allah. That is Allah's guidance by which He guides whoever He wills. And no one can guide those whom Allah misguides. (Qur'an, 39:23)

IT DISCRIMINATES BETWEEN
RIGHT AND WRONG

Previously, as guidance for mankind, and He has sent down the Criterion (of right and wrong). Those who reject Allah's Signs will have a terrible punishment. Allah is Almighty, Exactor of Revenge. (Qur'an, 3:4)

Blessed be He Who has sent down the Criterion to His servant so that he can be a warner to all beings. (Qur'an, 25:1)

IT IS A GUIDE TO THE RIGHT PATH

The Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their religion. Say, 'Allah's guidance is the true guidance.' If you were to follow their whims and desires, after the knowledge that has come to you, you would find no protector or helper against Allah. (Qur'an, 2:120)

The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Qur'an was sent down as guidance for mankind, with Clear Signs containing guidance and discrimination. Any of you who are resident for the month should fast it. But any of you who are ill or on a journey should fast a number of other days. Allah desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you. You should complete the number of days and proclaim Allah's greatness for the guidance He has given you so that hopefully you will be thankful. (Qur'an, 2:185)

IT HAS BEEN IMPOSED UPON THE BELIEVERS

He Who has imposed the Qur'an upon you will most certainly bring you back home again. Say: 'My Lord knows best who has brought true guidance and who is plainly misguided. (Qur'an, 28:85)

IT COMMANDS JUDGEMENT WITH JUSTICE

Allah has favoured some of you over others in provision, but those who have been favoured do not give their provision to their slaves so they become the same in respect of it. So why do they renounce the blessings of Allah? (Qur'an, 16:71)

They will ask you what they should give away. Say, 'Any wealth you give away should go to your parents and relatives and to orphans and the very poor and travellers.' Whatever good you do, Allah knows it. (Qur'an, 2:215)

You who believe! Give away some of the good things you have earned and some of what the earth produces for you. Do not have recourse to bad things when you give, things you would only take with your eyes tight shut! Know that Allah is Rich Beyond Need, Praiseworthy. (Qur'an, 2:267)

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

If someone (indebted) is in difficult circumstances, there should be a deferral until things are easier. But making a free gift of it would be better for you if you only knew. (Qur'an, 2:280)

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

They give food, despite their love for it, to the poor and orphans and captives. (Qur'an, 76:8)

Give your relatives their due, and the very poor and travellers but do not squander what you have. (Qur'an, 17:26)

What you give with usurious intent, aiming to get back a greater amount from people's wealth, does not become greater with Allah. But anything you pay as alms, seeking the Face of Allah – all who do that will get back twice as much. (Qur'an, 30:39)

Give orphans their property, and do not substitute bad things for good. Do not assimilate their property into your own. Doing that is a serious crime. (Qur'an, 4:2)

Do not hand over to the simple-minded any property of theirs for which Allah has made you responsible, but provide for them and clothe them out of it, and speak to them correctly and courteously. (Qur'an, 4:5)

Allah commands you to return to their owners the things you hold on trust and, when you judge between people, to judge with justice. How excellent is what Allah exhorts you to do! Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (Qur'an, 4:58)

If you make your charity public, that is good. But if you conceal it and give it to the poor, that is better for you, and We will erase some of your bad actions from you. Allah is aware of what you do. (Qur'an, 2:271)

You who believe! Be upholders of justice, bearing witness for       Allah alone, even against yourselves or your parents and relatives. Whether they are rich or poor, Allah is well able to look after them. Do not follow your own desires and deviate from the truth. If you twist or turn away, Allah is aware of what you do. (Qur'an, 4:135)

They are people who listen to lies and consume ill-gotten gains. If they come to you, you can either judge between them or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot harm you in any way. But if you do judge, judge between them justly. Allah loves the just. (Qur'an, 5:42)

As for the people who find fault with those believers who give charity spontaneously, and with those who can find nothing to give but their own effort, and deride them, Allah derides them. They will have a painful punishment. (Qur'an, 9:79)

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

And that you do not go near the property of orphans before they reach maturity – except in a good way; that you give full measure and full weight with justice – We impose on no self any more than it can bear; that you are equitable when you speak – even if a near relative is concerned; and that you fulfil Allah's contract. That is what He instructs you to do, so that hopefully you will pay heed. (Qur'an, 6:152)

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. (Qur'an, 59:7)

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

Worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him. Be good to your parents and relatives and to orphans and the very poor, and to neighbours who are related to you and neighbours who are not related to you, and to companions and travellers and your slaves. Allah does not love anyone vain or boastful. (Qur'an, 4:36)

Do not go near the property of orphans before they reach maturity, except in a good way. Fulfil your contracts. Contracts will be asked about. (Qur'an, 17:34)

IT BAFFLES THE DISBELIEVERS

We send down in the Qur'an that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers, but it only increases the wrongdoers in loss. (Qur'an, 17:82)

We have only appointed angels as masters of the Fire and We have only specified their number as a trial for those who do not believe; 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 unbelievers 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. (Qur'an, 74:31)
