“We gave Moses the Book & followed him up with a succession of messengers; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) & strengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you a messenger with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, & others ye slay!
They say, “Our hearts are the wrappings (which preserve Allah’s Word: we need no more).” Nay, Allah’s curse is on them for their blasphemy: Little is it they believe. Continue reading
“Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day,- there are indeed Signs for men of understanding,-
Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (With the thought): “Our Lord! not for naught Hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire. Continue reading
“Most monstrous. “They say: “(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!”
Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!
At it the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, & the mountains to fall down in utter ruin, Continue reading

“Mankind was one single nation, & Allah sent Messengers with glad tidings & warnings; & with them He sent the Book in truth, to judge between people in matters wherein they differed; but the People of the Book, after the clear Signs came to them, did not differ among themselves, except through selfish contumacy. Allah by His Grace Guided the believers to the Truth, concerning that wherein they differed. For Allah guided whom He will to a path that is straight.” [2:213]
“Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the night and the day; in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth; in the change of the winds, and the clouds which they Trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth;- (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise.” [2:164]
“For those who believe & work righteous deeds, there will be Gardens of Bliss,-
To dwell therein. The promise of Allah is true: & He is Exalted in Power, Wise.
He created the heavens without any pillars that ye can see; He set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you; & He scattered through it beasts of all kinds. We send down rain from the sky, & produce on the earth every kind of noble creature, in pairs.” [31:8-10]
“It was We who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was guidance & light. By its standard have been judged the Jews, by the prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to Allah’s will, by the rabbis & the doctors of law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allah’s book, & they were witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear me, & sell not my signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers. Continue reading
They know but the outer (things) in the life of this world: but of the End of things they are heedless.
Do they not reflect in their own minds? Not but for just ends & for a term appointed, did Allah create the heavens & the earth, & all between them: yet are there truly many among men who deny the meeting with their Lord (at the Resurrection)!
Do they not travel through the earth, & see what was the end of those before them? They were superior to them in strength: they tilled the soil & populated it in greater numbers than these have done: there came to them their messengers with Clear (Signs). (Which they rejected, to their own destruction): It was not Allah Who wronged them, but they wronged their own souls. [30:7-9]
“They do blaspheme who say: “Allah is Christ the son of Mary.” But said Christ: “O Children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord & your Lord.” Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden, & the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help. Continue reading
