"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our GOD is One Lord:
And you shall love the Lord your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might."
Deuteronomy 6:4, 5

The above was the heart of the message delivered by Moses to the Children of Israel. They were provided with good teachings and the book of the law. But they did forsake the truth, falsified the scripture (The Torah), innovated their own fabrications (Traditions of Talmud: Mishnah and Gemara), and thus became rebellious in the sight of GOD.

Quran 62:5.  The example of those who were given the Torah, then failed to uphold it, is like the donkey carrying great works of literature. Miserable indeed is the example of people who rejected God's revelations. GOD does not guide the wicked people.

Deuteronomy 31:16. "And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, you shall sleep with your fathers; and this people will rise up, and go after the gods of the strangers of the land (Traditions of Talmud, Mishnah and Gemara), whither they go to be among them, and will forsake Me, and break My covenant which I have made with them.

31:17. Then My anger shall be kindled against them in that Day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that Day, are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?


31:18. And I will surely hide My face in that Day for all the evils which they shall have done, in that they are turned unto other gods."

Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he made this prophecy before his death:

Deuteronomy 31:27. "For I know your rebellion, and your stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, you have been rebellious against the Lord; and how much more after my death?

31:28. Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them.

31:29. For I know that after my death you will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.

Quran 7:167.  Additionally, your Lord has decreed that He will raise up against them people who will inflict severe persecution upon them, until the Day of Resurrection. Your Lord is most efficient in enforcing retribution, and He is certainly the Forgiver, Most Merciful.
7:168. We scattered them among many communities throughout the land. Some of them were righteous, and some were less than righteous. We tested them with prosperity and hardship, that they may return.

Quran 17:4. We addressed the Children of Israel in the scripture: “You will commit gross evil on earth, twice. You are destined to fall into great heights of arrogance.
17:5. “When the first time comes to pass, we will send against you servants of ours who possess great might, and they will invade your homes. This is a prophecy that must come to pass.
17:6. “Afterwards, we will give you a turn over them, and will supply you with a lot of wealth and children; we will give you the upper hand.

17:7. “If you work righteousness, you work righteousness for your own good, but if you commit evil you do so to your own detriment. Thus, when the second time comes to pass, they (who) will defeat you and enter the mosque, just as they did the first time. They will wipe out all the gains you had accomplished.”

Glory is to GOD; this will be the greatest surprise in modern history.

?


Deuteronomy18:18. I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like you
(Moses), and I will put My words (the Quran) in his (Mohammad) mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

18:19. And it shall come to pass that whosoever will not listen to My words that he shall speak in My name
(In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
), I will require it of him.

O Children of Israel, remember My favor, which I bestowed upon you,
And fulfill your part of the covenant, that I fulfill My part of the covenant, and reverence Me.
You shall believe in what I have revealed herein, confirming what you have;
Do not be the first to reject it. Do not trade away My revelations for a cheap price, and observe Me.
Do not confound the truth with falsehood, nor shall you conceal the truth, knowingly.
Quran 2:

Why Moses is mentioned in the Quran 136 times?
Why Israel is mentioned in the Quran 43 times?

O Children of Israel this is a sign for you!
(GO TO)

"You shall believe in what I have revealed herein,
confirming what you have."

Would they believe?
(GO TO)


 

Divine Commandment to All Jews: You Shall Believe in This Quran.

2:40. O Children of Israel (1), remember My favor, which I bestowed upon you, and fulfill your part of the covenant, that I fulfill My part of the covenant, and reverence Me.
2:41. You shall believe in what I have revealed herein, confirming what you have; do not be the first to reject it. Do not trade away My revelations for a cheap price, and observe Me.
2:42. Do not confound the truth with falsehood, nor shall you conceal the truth, knowingly.
2:43. You shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and bow down with those who bow down.
2:44. Do you exhort the people to be righteous, while forgetting yourselves, though you read the scripture? Do you not understand?
2:45. You shall seek help through steadfastness and the Contact Prayers (Salat). This is difficult indeed, but not so for the reverent,
2:46. who believe that they will meet their Lord; that to Him they ultimately return.
2:47. O Children of
Israel (2), remember My favor which I bestowed upon you, and that I blessed you more than any other people.
2:48. Beware of the day when no soul can avail another soul, no intercession will be accepted, no ransom can be paid, nor can anyone be helped.
2:49. Recall that we saved you from Pharaoh's people who inflicted upon you the worst persecution, slaying your sons and sparing your daughters. That was an exacting test from your Lord.
2:50. Recall that we parted the sea for you; we saved you and drowned Pharaoh's people before your eyes.
2:51. Yet, when we summoned
Moses (1) for forty nights, you worshiped the calf in his absence, and turned wicked.
2:52. Still, we pardoned you thereafter that you may be appreciative.
2:53. Recall that we gave
Moses (2) scripture and the statute book, that you may be guided.

Kill Your Ego
2:54. Recall that Moses (3) said to his people, “O my people, you have wronged your souls by worshiping the calf. You must repent to your Creator. You shall kill your egos. This is better for you in the sight of your Creator.” He did redeem you. He is the Redeemer, Most Merciful.

Physical Evidence
2:55. Recall that you said, “O Moses (4), we will not believe unless we see
God, physically.” Consequently, the lightning struck you, as you looked.
2:56. We then revived you, after you had died, that you may be appreciative.
2:57. We shaded you with clouds (in Sinai), and sent down to you manna and quails: “Eat from the good things we provided for you.” They did not hurt us (by rebelling); they only hurt their own souls.

Lack of Confidence in God: They Refused to Enter Jerusalem
2:58. Recall that we said, “Enter this town, where you will find as many provisions as you like. Just enter the gate humbly, and treat the people nicely. We will then forgive your sins, and increase the reward for the pious.”
2:59. But the wicked among them carried out commands other than the commands given to them. Consequently, we sent down upon the transgressors condemnation from the sky, due to their wickedness.

More Miracles
2:60. Recall that Moses (5) sought water for his people. We said, “Strike the rock with your staff.” Where-upon, twelve springs gushed out there-from. The members of each tribe knew their own water. Eat and drink from
God's provisions, and do not roam the earth corrupting it.

Israel Rebels
2:61. Recall that you said, “O Moses (6), we can no longer tolerate one kind of food. Call upon your Lord to produce for us such earthly crops as beans, cucumbers, garlic, lentils, and onions.” He said, “Do you wish to substitute that which is inferior for that which is good? Go down to Egypt, where you can find what you asked for.” They have incurred condemnation, humiliation, and disgrace, and brought upon themselves wrath from God. This is because they rejected God's revelations, and killed the prophets unjustly. This is because they disobeyed and transgressed.

Unity of All Submitters
2:62. Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who
(1) believes in God, and (2) believes in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

Covenant with Israel
2:63. We made a covenant with you, as we raised Mount Sinai above you: "You shall uphold what we have given you strongly, and remember its contents, that you may be saved."

2:64. But you turned away thereafter, and if it were not for God's grace towards you and His mercy, you would have been doomed.
2:65. You have known about those among you who desecrated the Sabbath. We said to them, “Be you as despicable as apes.”
2:66. We set them up as an example for their generation, as well as subsequent generations, and an enlightenment for the righteous.

The Heifer
2:67. Moses (7) said to his people, “
God commands you to sacrifice a heifer.” They said, “Are you mocking us?” He said, “God forbid, that I should behave like the ignorant ones.”
2:68. They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us which one.” He said, “He says that she is a heifer that is neither too old, nor too young; of an intermediate age. Now, carry out what you are commanded to do.”
2:69. They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us her color.” He said, “He says that she is a yellow heifer, bright colored, pleases the beholders.”
2:70. They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us which one. The heifers look alike to us and,
God willing, we will be guided.”
2:71. He said, “He says that she is a heifer that was never humiliated in plowing the land or watering the crops; free from any blemish.” They said, “Now you have brought the truth.” They finally sacrificed her, after this lengthy reluctance.

Purpose of the Heifer
2:72. You had killed a soul, then disputed among yourselves.
God was to expose what you tried to conceal.
2:73. We said, “Strike (the victim) with part (of the heifer).” That is when God brought the victim back to life, and showed you His signs, that you may understand.
2:74. Despite this, your hearts hardened like rocks, or even harder. For there are rocks from which rivers gush out. Others crack and release gentle streams, and other rocks cringe out of reverence for God. God is never unaware of anything you do.

Distorting the Word of God
2:75. Do you expect them to believe as you do, when some of them used to hear the word of
God, then distort it, with full understanding thereof, and deliberately?

Concealing the Word of God
2:76. And when they meet the believers, they say, “We believe,” but when they get together with each other, they say, “Do not inform (the believers) of the information given to you by God, lest you provide them with support for their argument concerning your Lord. Do you not understand?”
2:77. Do they not know that God knows everything they conceal, and everything they declare?
2:78. Among them are gentiles who do not know the scripture, except through hearsay, then assume that they know it.
2:79. Therefore, woe to those who distort the scripture with their own hands, then say, “This is what
God has revealed,” seeking a cheap material gain. Woe to them for such distortion, and woe to them for their illicit gains.

Eternity of Heaven and Hell
2:80. Some have said, “Hell will not touch us, except for a limited number of days.” Say, “Have you taken such a pledge from
God - God never breaks His pledge - or, are you saying about God what you do not know?”
2:81. Indeed, those who earn sins and become surrounded by their evil work will be the dwellers of Hell; they abide in it forever.
2:82. As for those who believe, and lead a righteous life, they will be the dwellers of Paradise; they abide in it forever.

The Commandments
2:83. We made a covenant with the Children of Israel (3): “You shall not worship except
God. You shall honor your parents and regard the relatives, the orphans, and the poor. You shall treat the people amicably. You shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat).” But you turned away, except a few of you, and you became averse.
2:84. We made a covenant with you, that you shall not shed your blood, nor shall you evict each other from your homes. You agreed and bore witness.
2:85. Yet, here you are killing each other, and evicting some of you from their homes, banding against them sinfully and maliciously. Even when they surrendered, you demanded ransom from them. Evicting them was prohibited for you in the first place. Do you believe in part of the scripture and disbelieve in part? What should be the retribution for those among you who do this, except humiliation in this life, and a far worse retribution on the Day of Resurrection?
God is never unaware of anything you do.
2:86. It is they who bought this lowly life at the expense of the Hereafter. Consequently, the retribution is never commuted for them, nor can they be helped.

The Prophets of Israel
2:87. We gave Moses (8) the scripture, and subsequent to him we sent other messengers, and we gave Jesus, son of Mary, profound miracles and supported him with the Holy Spirit. Is it not a fact that every time a messenger went to you with anything you disliked, your ego caused you to be arrogant? Some of them you rejected, and some of them you killed.

Tragic Statement: "My mind is made up!"
2:88. Some would say, “Our minds are made up!” Instead, it is a curse from
God, as a consequence of their disbelief, that keeps them from believing, except for a few of them.

The Quran Consummates All Scriptures
2:89. When this scripture came to them from
God, and even though it agrees with, and confirms what they have, and even though they used to prophesy its advent when they talked with the disbelievers, when their own prophecy came to pass, they disbelieved therein. God's condemnation thus afflicts the disbelievers.
2:90. Miserable indeed is what they sold their souls for - rejecting these revelations of God out of sheer resentment that God should bestow His grace upon whomever He chooses from among His servants. Consequently, they incurred wrath upon wrath. The disbelievers have incurred a humiliating retribution.
2:91. When they are told, “You shall believe in these revelations of God,” they say, “We believe only in what was sent down to us.” Thus, they disbelieve in subsequent revelations, even if it is the truth from their Lord, and even though it confirms what they have! Say, “Why then did you kill God's prophets, if you were believers?”

Learning From Israel's History
2:92. Moses (9) went to you with profound miracles, yet you worshiped the calf in his absence, and you turned wicked.
2:93. We made a covenant with you, as we raised Mount Sinai above you, saying, “You shall uphold the commandments we have given you, strongly, and listen." They said, "We hear, but we disobey.” Their hearts became filled with adoration for the calf, due to their disbelief. Say, “Miserable indeed is what your faith dictates upon you, if you do have any faith.”

2:94. Say, “If the abode of the Hereafter is reserved for you at
God, to the exclusion of all other people, then you should long for death, if you are truthful.”
2:95. They never long for it, because of what their hands have sent forth.
God is fully aware of the wicked.
2:96. In fact, you will find them the most covetous of life; even more so than the idol worshipers. The one of them wishes to live a thousand years. But this will not spare him any retribution, no matter how long he lives. God is seer of everything they do.

Gabriel Mediates the Revelation
2:97. Say, “Anyone who opposes Gabriel should know that he has brought down this (Quran) into your heart, in accordance with
God's will, confirming previous scriptures, and providing guidance and good news for the believers.”
2:98. Anyone who opposes God, and His angels, and His messengers, and Gabriel and Michael, should know that God opposes the disbelievers.
2:99. We have sent down to you such clear revelations, and only the wicked will reject them.
2:100. Is it not a fact that when they make a covenant and pledge to keep it, some of them always disregard it? In fact, most of them do not believe.

Disregarding God's Scripture
2:101. Now that a messenger from
God has come to them, and even though he proves and confirms their own scripture, some followers of the scripture disregard God's scripture behind their backs, as if they never had any scripture.

Witchcraft Condemned
2:102. They pursued what the devils taught concerning Solomon's kingdom. Solomon, however, was not a disbeliever, but the devils were disbelievers. They taught the people sorcery, and that which was sent down through the two angels of Babel, Haroot and Maroot. These two did not divulge such
knowledge without pointing out: "This is a test. You shall not abuse such knowledge." But the people used it in such evil schemes as the breaking up of marriages. They can never harm anyone against the will of God. They thus learn what hurts them, not what benefits them, and they know full well that whoever practices witchcraft will have no share in the Hereafter. Miserable indeed is what they sell their souls for, if they only knew.
2:103. If they believe and lead a righteous life, the reward from God is far better, if they only knew.

Twisting the Words of Supplication
2:104. O you who believe, do not say, “Raa`ena" (be our shepherd). Instead, you should say, "Unzurna” (watch over us), and listen. The disbelievers have incurred a painful retribution.

Jealousy Condemned
2:105. Neither the disbelievers among the followers of the scripture, nor the idol worshipers, wish to see any blessings come down to you from your Lord. However,
God showers His blessings upon whomever He chooses. God possesses infinite grace.

The Ultimate Miracle: The Quran's Mathematical Code
2:106. When we abrogate any miracle, or cause it to be forgotten, we produce a better miracle, or at least an equal one. Do you not recognize the fact that God is Omnipotent?
2:107. Do you not recognize the fact that God possesses the kingship of the heavens and the earth; that you have none besides God as your Lord and Master?
2:108. Do you wish to demand of your messenger what was demanded of Moses (10) in the past? Anyone who chooses disbelief, instead of belief, has truly strayed off the right path.
2:109. Many followers of the scripture would rather see you revert to disbelief, now that you have believed. This is due to jealousy on their part, after the truth has become evident to them. You shall pardon them, and leave them alone, until
God issues His judgment. God is Omnipotent.
2:110. You shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat). Any good you send forth on behalf of your souls, you will find it at God. God is seer of everything you do.

All Believers Are Redeemed, Regardless of the Name of Their Religion
2:111. Some have said, “No one will enter Paradise except Jews or Christians!” Such is their wishful thinking. Say, “Show us your proof, if you are right.”

Submission: The Only Religion
2:112. Indeed, those who submit themselves absolutely to
God alone, while leading a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord; they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
2:113. The Jews said, “The Christians have no basis,” while the Christians said, “The Jews have no basis.” Yet, both of them read the scripture. Such are the utterances of those who possess no knowledge. God will judge them on the Day of Resurrection, regarding their disputes.

You Shall Frequent the Masjid
2:114. Who are more evil than those who boycott
God's masjids, where His name is commemorated, and contribute to their desertion? These ought not to enter therein except fearfully. They will suffer in this life humiliation, and will suffer in the Hereafter a terrible retribution.

2:120. Neither the Jews, nor the Christians, will accept you, unless you follow their religion. Say, “God's guidance is the true guidance.” If you acquiesce to their wishes, despite the knowledge you have received, you will find no ally or supporter to help you against God.
2:121. Those who received the scripture, and know it as it should be known, will believe in this. As for those who disbelieve, they are the losers.
2:122. O Children of
Israel (4), remember My favor which I bestowed upon you, and that I blessed you more than any other people.
2:123. Beware of the day when no soul will help another soul, no ransom will be accepted, no intercession will be useful, and no one will be helped.

Abraham Delivered All the Practices of Submission (Islam)
2:127. As Abraham raised the foundations of the shrine, together with Ismail (they prayed): “Our Lord, accept this from us. You are the Hearer, the Omniscient.
2:128. “Our Lord, make us submitters to You, and from our descendants let there be a community of submitters to You. Teach us the rites of our religion, and redeem us. You are the Redeemer, Most Merciful.
2:129. “Our Lord, and raise among them a messenger to recite to them Your revelations, teach them the scripture and wisdom, and purify them. You are the Almighty, Most Wise.”
2:130. Who would forsake the religion of Abraham, except one who fools his own soul? We have chosen him in this world, and in the Hereafter he will be with the righteous.
2:131. When his Lord said to him, “Submit,” he said, “I submit to the Lord of the universe.”
2:132. Moreover, Abraham exhorted his children to do the same, and so did Jacob: "O my children,
God has pointed out the religion for you; do not die except as submitters.
2:133. Had you witnessed Jacob on his death bed; he said to his children, “What will you worship after I die? They said, “We will worship your god; the god of your fathers Abraham, Ishmael, and Isaac; the One god. To Him we are submitters.”
2:134. Such is a community from the past. They are responsible for what they earned, and you are responsible for what you earned. You are not answerable for anything they have done.

Submission (Islam): Abraham's Religion
2:135. They said, “You have to be Jewish or Christian, to be guided.” Say, “We follow the religion of Abraham - monotheism - he never was an idol worshiper.”

No Distinction Among God's Messengers
2:136. Say, “We believe in God, and in what was sent down to us, and in what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Patriarchs; and in what was given to Moses
(11) and Jesus, and all the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction among any of them. To Him alone we are submitters.”

2:140. Do you say that Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Patriarchs were Jewish or Christian? Say, “Do you know better than God? Who is more evil than one who conceals a testimony he has learned from God? God is never unaware of anything you do.”

Miracles Bring Greater Responsibility
2:211. Ask the Children of Israel (5) how many profound miracles have we shown them!
For those who disregard the blessings bestowed upon them by God, God is most strict in retribution.

Disastrous Jealousy
2:213. The people used to be one community when
God sent the prophets as bearers of good news, as well as warners. He sent down with them the scripture, bearing the truth, to judge among the people in their disputes. Ironically, those who received the scripture were the ones who rejected any new scripture, despite clear proofs given to them. This is due to jealousy on their part. God guides those who believe to the truth that is disputed by all others, in accordance with His will. God guides whoever wills in a straight path.

Saul
2:246. Have you noted the leaders among the Children of Israel (6) after Moses (12)? They said to their prophet,
“If you appoint a king to lead us, we will fight in the cause of God.” He said, “Is it your intention that, if fighting is decreed for you, you will not fight?” They said, “Why should we not fight in the cause of God, when we have been deprived of our homes, and our children?” Yet, when fighting was decreed for them, they turned away, except a few. God is aware of the transgressors.

Questioning God's Wisdom
2:247. Their prophet said to them, "
God has appointed Taloot (Saul) to be your king. They said, “How can he have kingship over us when we are more worthy of kingship than he; he is not even rich?” He said, “God has chosen him over you, and has blessed him with an abundance in knowledge and in body.” God grants His kingship to whomever He wills. God is Bounteous, Omniscient.

Ark of the Covenant
2:248. Their prophet said to them, “The sign of his kingship is that the Ark of the Covenant will be restored to you, bringing assurances from your Lord, and relics left by the people of Moses (13) and the people of Aaron. It will be carried by the angels. This should be a convincing sign for you, if you are really believers.”

David and Goliath
2:249. When Saul took command of the troops, he said, “
God is putting you to the test by means of a stream. Anyone who drinks from it does not belong with me - only those who do not taste it belong with me - unless it is just a single sip.” They drank from it, except a few of them. When he crossed it with those who believed, they said, “Now we lack the strength to face Goliath and his troops.” Those who were conscious of meeting God said, “Many a small army defeated a large army by God's leave. God is with those who steadfastly persevere.”
2:250. When they faced Goliath and his troops, they prayed, “Our Lord, grant us steadfastness, strengthen our foothold, and support us against the disbelieving people.”
2:251. They defeated them by
God's leave, and David killed Goliath. God gave him kingship and wisdom, and taught him as He willed. If it were not for God's support of some people against others, there would be chaos on earth. But God showers His grace upon the people.

2:252. These are God's revelations. We recite them through you, truthfully, for you are one of the messengers.

3:2. GOD: there is no god except He; the Living, the Eternal.
3:3. He sent down to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming all previous scriptures, and He sent down the Torah and the Gospel
3:4. before that, to guide the people, and He sent down the statute book. Those who disbelieve in
God's revelations incur severe retribution. God is Almighty, Avenger.

3:10. Those who disbelieve will never be helped by their money, nor by their children, against God. They will be fuel for Hell.
3:11. Like Pharaoh's people and those before them, they rejected our revelations and, consequently, God punished them for their sins. God is strict in enforcing retribution.

The Most Important Commandment 
3:18. GOD bears witness that there is no god except He, and so do the angels and those who possess knowledge. Truthfully and equitably, He is the absolute god; there is no god but He, the Almighty, Most Wise.

Submission: The Only Religion
3:19. The only religion approved by God is “Submission.” Ironically, those who have received the scripture are the ones who dispute this fact, despite the knowledge they have received, due to jealousy. For those who reject God's revelations, God is most strict in reckoning.

3:20. If they argue with you, then say, “I have simply submitted myself to God; I and those who follow me.” You shall proclaim to those who received the scripture, as well as those who did not, “Would you submit?" If they submit, then they have been guided, but if they turn away, your sole mission is to deliver this message. God is Seer of all people.
3:21. Those who have rejected God's revelations, and killed the prophets unjustly, and killed those who advocated justice among the people, promise them a painful retribution.
3:22. Their works have been nullified, both in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.
3:23. Have you noted those who were given part of the scripture, and how they are invited to uphold this scripture of God, and apply it to their own lives, then some of them turn away in aversion?
3:24. This is because they said, “The hellfire will not touch us, except for a few days.” They were thus deceived in their religion by their own fabrications.
3:25. How will it be for them, when we summon them on that inevitable day? Each soul will be paid for whatever it earned, without the least injustice.

_____________________________________________________

3:49. As a messenger to the Children of Israel (7): “I come to you with a sign from your Lord -- I create for you from clay the shape of a bird, then I blow into it, and it becomes a live bird by God's leave. I restore vision to the blind, heal the leprous, and I revive the dead by God's leave. I can tell you what you eat, and what you store in your homes. This should be a proof for you, if you are believers.

____________________________________________________________

 Invitation to All Believers
3:64. Say, “O followers of the scripture, let us come to a logical agreement between us and you: that we shall not worship except God; that we never set up any idols besides Him, nor set up any human beings as lords beside God.” If they turn away, say, “Bear witness that we are submitters.”

3:65. O followers of the scripture, why do you argue about Abraham, when the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed until after him? Do you not understand?
3:66. You have argued about things you knew; why do you argue about things you do not know? God knows, while you do not know.
3:67. Abraham was neither Jewish, nor Christian; he was a monotheist submitter. He never was an idol worshiper.
3:68. The people most worthy of Abraham are those who followed him, and this Prophet, and those who believe. God is the Lord and Master of the believers.
3:69. Some followers of the scripture wish to lead you astray, but they only lead themselves astray, without perceiving.
3:70. O followers of the scripture, why do you reject these revelations of God though you bear witness (that this is the truth)
3:71. O followers of the scripture, why do you confound the truth with falsehood, and conceal the truth, knowingly?

Be Honest With All People
3:75. Some followers of the scripture can be trusted with a whole lot, and they will give it back to you. Others among them cannot be trusted with a single dinar; they will not repay you unless you keep after them. That is because they say, "We do not have to be honest when dealing with the gentiles! Thus, they attribute lies to God, knowingly.
3:76. Indeed, those who fulfill their obligations and lead a righteous life, God loves the righteous.
3:77. As for those who trade away God's covenant, and their obligations, for a cheap price, they receive no share in the Hereafter. God will not speak to them, nor look at them, on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them. They have incurred a painful retribution.
3:78. Among them are those who twist their tongues to imitate the scripture, that you may think it is from the scripture, when it is not from the scripture, and they claim that it is from God, when it is not from God. Thus, they utter lies and attribute them to God, knowingly.

Make No Distinction Among God's Messengers
3:84. Say, “We believe in God, and in what was sent down to us, and in what was sent down to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and in what was given to Moses (14), Jesus, and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction among any of them. To Him alone we are submitters.”

Do Not Prohibit What Is Lawful
**** 3:93. All food used to be lawful for the Children of Israel (8), until Israel (9) imposed certain prohibitions on themselves before the Torah was sent down. Say, "Bring the Torah and read it, if you are truthful."
3:94. Those who fabricate false prohibitions after this, and attribute them to God, are truly wicked.
3:95. Say, “God has proclaimed the truth: You shall follow Abraham's religion -- monotheism. He never was an idolater.”

3:108. These are God's revelations; we recite them to you, truthfully. God does not wish any hardship for the people.
3:109. To God belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth, and all matters are controlled by God.

The Best Community
3:110. You are the best community ever raised among the people: you advocate righteousness and forbid evil, and you believe in God. If the followers of the scripture believed, it would be better for them. Some of them do believe, but the majority of them are wicked.
3:111. They can never harm you, beyond insulting you. If they fight you, they will turn around and flee. They can never win.
3:112. They shall be humiliated whenever you encounter them, unless they uphold God's covenant, as well as their peace covenants with you. They have incurred wrath from God, and, consequently, they are committed to disgrace. This is because they rejected God's revelations, and killed the prophets unjustly. This is because they disobeyed and transgressed.

Righteous Jews & Christians
3:113. They are not all the same; among the followers of the scripture, there are those who are righteous. They recite God's revelations through the night, and they fall prostrate.
3:114. They believe in God and the Last Day, they advocate righteousness and forbid evil, and they hasten to do righteous works. These are the righteous.
3:115. Any good they do will not go without being rewarded. God is fully aware of the righteous.

Humans Continue to Defy God
3:181. God has heard the utterances of those who said, “God is poor, while we are rich.” We will record everything they said, just as we recorded their killing of the prophets unjustly, and we will say, “Suffer the retribution of Hell.
3:182. “This is the consequence of your own works.” God is never unjust towards the people.
3:183. It is they who said, “God has made a covenant with us that we shall not believe in any messenger, unless he produces an offering that gets consumed by fire.” Say, “Messengers before me have come to you with clear proofs, including what you just demanded. Why then did you kill them, if you are truthful?”
3:184. If they reject you, messengers before you have been rejected, even though they brought proofs, the Psalms, and the enlightening scripture.

3:187. God took a covenant from those who received the scripture: “You shall proclaim it to the people, and never conceal it.” But they disregarded it behind their backs, and traded it away for a cheap price. What a miserable trade.

Righteous Jews and Christians
3:199. Surely, some followers of the previous scriptures do believe in God, and in what was revealed to you, and in what was revealed to them. They reverence God, and they never trade away God's revelations for a cheap price. These will receive their recompense from their Lord. God is the most efficient in reckoning.

3:200. O you who believe, you shall be steadfast, you shall persevere, you shall be united, you shall observe God, that you may succeed.

4:45. God knows best who your enemies are. God is the only Lord and Master. God is the only Supporter.

4:46. Among those who are Jewish, some distort the words beyond the truth, and they say, “We hear, but we disobey,” and “Your words are falling on deaf ears,” and “Raa'ena* (be our shepherd),” as they twist their tongues to mock the religion. Had they said, “We hear, and we obey,” and “We hear you,” and “Unzurna (watch over us),” it would have been better for them, and more righteous. Instead, they have incurred condemnation from God due to their disbelief. Consequently, the majority of them cannot believe.

4:46 The word "Raa'ena" was twisted by some Hebrew speaking people to sound like a dirty word. See 2:104.

4:47. O you who received the scripture, you shall believe in what we reveal herein, confirming what you have, before we banish certain faces to exile, or condemn them as we condemned those who desecrated the Sabbath. God's command is done.

4:49. Have you noted those who exalt themselves? Instead, God is the One who exalts whomever He wills, without the least injustice.
4:50. Note how they fabricate lies about God; what a gross offense this is!

4:51. Have you noted those who received a portion of the scripture, and how they believe in idolatry and false doctrine, then say, "The disbelievers are better guided than the believers!"?
4:52. It is they who incurred God's condemnation, and whomever God condemns, you will not find any helper for him.
4:53. Do they own a share of the sovereignty? If they did, they would not give the people as much as a grain.
4:54. Are they envious of the people because God has showered them wit His blessings? We have given Abraham's family the scripture, and wisdom; we granted them a great authority.
4:55. Some of them believed therein, and some of them repelled there-from; Hell is the only just retribution for these.
4:56. Surely, those who disbelieve in our revelations, we will condemn them to the hellfire. Whenever their skins are burnt, we will give them new skins. Thus, they will suffer continuously. God is Almighty, Most Wise.
4:57. As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, we will admit them into gardens with flowing streams; they abide therein forever. They will have pure spouses therein. We will admit them into a blissful shade.

Abraham: Original Messenger of Islam
4:125. Who is better guided in his religion than one who submits totally to God, leads a righteous life, according to the creed of Abraham: monotheism? God has chosen Abraham as a beloved friend.

Lessons From Israel
4:153. The people of the scripture challenge you to bring down to them a book from the sky! They have asked Moses (15) for more than that, saying, “Show us God, physically.” Consequently, the lightning struck them, as a consequence of their audacity. Additionally, they worshiped the calf, after all the miracles they had seen. Yet, we pardoned all this. We supported Moses (16) with profound miracles.
4:154. And we raised Mount Sinai above them, as we took their covenant. And we said to them, “Enter the gate humbly.” And we said to them, “Do not desecrate the Sabbath.” Indeed, we took from them a solemn covenant.
4:155. (They incurred condemnation) for violating their covenant, rejecting God's revelations, killing the prophets unjustly, and for saying, “Our minds are made up!” In fact, God is the One who sealed their minds, due to their disbelief, and this is why they fail to believe, except rarely.
4:156. (They are condemned) for disbelieving and uttering about Mary a gross lie.

Crucifying “the Body” of Jesus
4:157. And for claiming that they killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of God. In fact, they never killed him, they never crucified him - they were made to think that they did. All factions who are disputing in this matter are full of doubt concerning this issue. They possess no knowledge; they only conjecture. For certain, they never killed him.
4:158. Instead, God raised him to Him; God is Almighty, Most Wise.
4:159. Everyone among the people of the scripture was required to believe in him before his death. On the Day of Resurrection, he will be a witness against them.
4:160. Due to their transgressions, we prohibited for the Jews good foods that used to be lawful for them; also for consistently repelling from the path of God.
4:161. And for practicing usury, which was forbidden, and for consuming the people's money illicitly. We have prepared for the disbelievers among them painful retribution.
4:162. As for those among them who are well founded in knowledge, and the believers, they believe in what was revealed to you, and in what was revealed before you. They are observers of the Contact Prayers (Salat), and givers of the obligatory charity (Zakat); they are believers in God and the Last Day. We grant these a great recompense.

God's Messengers
4:163. We have inspired you (Mohammad), as we inspired Noah and the prophets after him. And we inspired Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Patriarchs, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon. And we gave David the Psalms.
4:164. Messengers we have told you about, and messengers we never told you about. And God spoke to
Moses (17) directly.
4:165. Messengers to deliver good news, as well as warnings. Thus, the people will have no excuse when they face God, after all these messengers have come to them. God is Almighty, Most Wise.
4:166. But God bears witness concerning what He has revealed to you; He has revealed it with His knowledge. And the angels bear witness as well, but God suffices as witness.

The Quran's Mathematical Code: Tangible, Irrefutable Proof
4:174. O people, a proof has come to you from your Lord; we have sent down to you a profound beacon.
4:175. Those who believe in God, and hold fast to Him, He will admit them into mercy from Him, and grace, and will guide them to Him in a straight path.

Only Four Meats Prohibited “Animals that die of themselves” Defined
5:3. Prohibited for you are animals that die of themselves, blood, the meat of pigs, and animals dedicated to other than God. (Animals that die of themselves include those) strangled, struck with an object, fallen from a height, gored, attacked by a wild animal - unless you save your animal before it dies - and animals sacrificed on altars. Also prohibited is dividing the meat through a game of chance; this is an abomination. Today, the disbelievers have given up concerning (the eradication of)  your religion; do not fear them and fear Me instead. Today, I have completed your religion, perfected My blessing upon you, and I have decreed Submission as the religion for you. If one is forced by famine (to eat prohibited food), without being deliberately sinful, then God is Forgiver, Merciful.
5:4. They consult you concerning what is lawful for them; say, “Lawful for you are all good things, including what trained dogs and falcons catch for you.” You train them according to God's teachings. You may eat what they catch for you, and mention God's name thereupon. You shall observe God. God is most efficient in reckoning.
5:5. Today, all good food is made lawful for you. The food of the people of the scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. Also, you may marry the chaste women among the believers, as well as the chaste women among the followers of previous scripture, provided you pay them their due dowries. You shall maintain chastity, not committing adultery, nor taking secret lovers. Anyone who rejects faith, all his work will be in vain, and in the Hereafter he will be with the losers.

Conditions for Staying Within God's Protection
5:12. God had taken a covenant from the Children of Israel (10), and we raised among them twelve patriarchs. And God said, "I am with you, so long as you observe the Contact Prayers (Salat ), give the obligatory charity (Zakat ), and believe in My messengers and respect them, and continue to lend God a loan of righteousness. I will then remit your sins, and admit you into gardens with flowing streams. Anyone who disbelieves after this, has indeed strayed off the right path."
5:13. It was a consequence of their violating the covenant that we condemned them, and we caused their hearts to become hardened. Consequently, they took the words out of context, and disregarded some of the commandments given to them. You will continue to witness betrayal from them, excepting a few of them. You shall pardon them, and disregard them. God loves those who are benevolent.

The Quran: God's Message to the Jews and Christians
5:15. O people of the scripture, our messenger has come to you to proclaim for you many things you have concealed in the scripture, and to pardon many other transgressions you have committed. A beacon has come to you from God, and a profound scripture.
5:16. With it, God guides those who seek His approval. He guides them to the paths of peace, leads them out of darkness into the light by His leave, and guides them in a straight path.

Who are God's chosen and the beloved?
5:18. The Jews and the Christians said, “We are God's children and His beloved.” Say, “Why then does He punish you for your sins? You are just humans like the other humans He created.” He forgives whomever He wills and punishes whomever He wills. To God belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, and to Him is the final destiny.

5:20. Recall that Moses (18) said to his people, “O my people, remember God's blessings upon you: He appointed prophets from among you, made you kings, and granted you what He never granted any other people.
5:21. “O my people, enter the holy land that God has decreed for you, and do not rebel, lest you become losers.”
5:22. They said, “O
Moses (19), there are powerful people in it, and we will not enter it, unless they get out of it. If they get out, we are entering.”
5:23. Two men who were reverent and blessed by God said, “Just enter the gate. If you just enter it, you will surely prevail. You must trust in God, if you are believers.”

Despite All the Miracles They had seen
5:24. They said, “O Moses (20), we will never enter it, so long as they are in it. Therefore, go - you and your Lord - and fight. We are sitting right here.”
5:25. He said, “My Lord, I can only control myself and my brother. So allow us to part company with the wicked people.”
5:26. He said, “Henceforth, it is forbidden them for
forty years, during which they will roam the earth aimlessly. Do not grieve over such wicked people.”
 

Grossness of Murder
5:32. Because of this, we decreed for the Children of Israel (11) that anyone who murders any person who had not committed murder or horrendous crimes, it shall be as if he murdered all the people. And anyone who spares a life it shall be as if he spared the lives of all the people. Our messengers went to them with clear proofs and revelations, but most of them, after all this, are still transgressing.

Capital Punishment: When is it Justified?
5:33. The just retribution for those who fight God and His messenger, and commit horrendous crimes, is to be killed, or crucified, or to have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or to be banished from the land. This is to humiliate them in this life, then they suffer a far worse retribution in the Hereafter.
5:34. Exempted are those who repent before you overcome them. You should know that God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

5:41. O you messenger, do not be saddened by those who hasten to disbelieve among those who say, “We believe,” with their mouths, while their hearts do not believe. Among the Jews, some listened to lies. They listened to people who never met you, and who distorted the words out of context, then said, “If you are given this, accept it, but if you are given anything different, beware.” Whomever God wills to divert, you can do nothing to help him against God. God does not wish to cleanse their hearts. They have incurred humiliation in this world, and in the Hereafter, they will suffer a terrible retribution.
5:42. They are upholders of lies, and eaters of illicit earnings. If they come to you to judge among them, you may judge among them, or you may disregard them. If you choose to disregard them, they cannot harm you in the least. But if you judge among them, you shall judge equitably. God loves those who are equitable.
5:43. Why do they ask you to judge among them, when they have the Torah, containing God's law, and they chose to disregard it? They are not believers.

Honoring Previous Scripture
5:44. We have sent down the Torah, containing guidance and light. Ruling in accordance with it were the Jewish prophets, as well as the rabbis and the priests, as dictated to them in God's scripture, and as witnessed by them. Therefore, do not reverence human beings; you shall reverence Me instead. And do not trade away My revelations for a cheap price. Those who do not rule in accordance with God's revelations, are the disbelievers.

The Law of Equivalence
5:45. And we decreed for them in it that: the life for the life, the eye for the eye, the nose for the nose, the ear for the ear, the tooth for the tooth, and an equivalent injury for any injury. If one forfeits what is due to him as a charity, it will atone for his sins. Those who do not rule in accordance with God's revelations are the unjust.

Quran: The Ultimate Reference
5:48. Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall rule among them in accordance with God's revelations, and do not follow their wishes if they differ from the truth that came to you. For each of you, we have decreed laws and different rites. Had God willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To God is your final destiny - all of you - then He will inform you of everything you had disputed.
5:49. You shall rule among them in accordance with God's revelations to you. Do not follow their wishes, and beware lest they divert you from some of God's revelations to you. If they turn away, then know that God wills to punish them for some of their sins. Indeed, many people are wicked.

Certain Jews and Christians Cannot Be Friends
5:51. O you who believe, do not take certain Jews and Christians as allies; these are allies of one another. Those among you who ally themselves with these belong with them. God does not guide the transgressors.

Which Jews and Christians
5:57. O you who believe, do not befriend those among the recipients of previous scripture who mock and ridicule your religion, nor shall you befriend the disbelievers. You shall reverence God, if you are really believers.
5:58. When you call to the Contact Prayers (Salat ), they mock and ridicule it. This is because they are people who do not understand.
5:59. Say, “O people of the scripture, do you not hate us because we believe in God, and in what was revealed to us, and in what was revealed before us, and because most of you are not righteous?”
5:60. Say, “Let me tell you who are worse in the sight of God: those who are condemned by God after incurring His wrath until He made them (as despicable as ) monkeys and pigs, and the idol worshipers. These are far worse, and farther from the right path.”
5:61. When they come to you, they say, “We believe,” even though they were full of disbelief when they entered, and they are full of disbelief when they leave. God is fully aware of everything they conceal.
5:62. You see many of them readily committing evil and transgression, and eating from illicit earnings. Miserable indeed is what they do.
5:63. If only the rabbis and the priests enjoin them from their sinful utterances and illicit earnings! Miserable indeed is what they commit.

Blaspheming Against God
5:64. The Jews even said, “God's hand is tied down!” It is their hands that are tied down. They are condemned for uttering such a blasphemy. Instead, His hands are wide open, spending as He wills. For certain, your Lord's revelations to you will cause many of them to plunge deeper into transgression and disbelief. Consequently, we have committed them to animosity and hatred among themselves until the Day of Resurrection. Whenever they ignite the flames of war, God puts them out. They roam the earth wickedly, and God dislikes the evildoers.

5:68. Say, “O people of the scripture, you have no basis until you uphold the Torah, and the Gospel, and what is sent down to you herein from your Lord.” For sure, these revelations from your Lord will cause many of them to plunge deeper into transgression and disbelief. Therefore, do not feel sorry for the disbelieving people.

Minimum Requirements For Salvation
5:69. Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the converts, and the Christians; any of them who (1) believe in God and (2) believe in the Last Day, and (3) lead a righteous life, have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

5:70. We have taken a covenant from the Children of Israel (12), and we sent to them messengers. Whenever a messenger went to them with anything they disliked, some of them they rejected, and some they killed.
 

Salvation For Jews and Christians
5:65. If only the people of the scripture believe and lead a righteous life, we will then remit their sins, and admit them into gardens of bliss.

They Must Believe in This Quran
5:66. If only they would uphold the Torah and the Gospel, and what is sent down to them herein from their Lord, they would be showered with blessings from above them and from beneath their feet. Some of them are righteous, but many of them are evildoers.

__________________________________________________

Today's Christianity Not Jesus' Religion
5:72. Pagans indeed are those who say that God is the Messiah, son of Mary. The Messiah himself said, “O Children of Israel (13), you shall worship God; my Lord and your Lord.” Anyone who sets up any idol beside God, God has forbidden Paradise for him, and his destiny is Hell. The wicked have no helpers.

5:73. Pagans indeed are those who say that God is a third of a trinity. There is no god except the One god. Unless they refrain from saying this, those who disbelieve among them will incur a painful retribution.

_________________________________________________________

Choose Your Friends Carefully
5:77. Say, “O people of the scripture, do not transgress the limits of your religion beyond the truth, and do not follow the opinions of people who have gone astray, and have misled multitudes of people; they are far astray from the right path.”
5:78. Condemned are those who disbelieved among the Children of
Israel (14), by the tongue of David and Jesus, the son of Mary. This is because they disobeyed and transgressed.

A Statement of Fact
5:82. You will find that the worst enemies of the believers are the Jews and the idol worshipers. And you will find that the closest people in friendship to the believers are those who say, "We are Christian." This is because they have priests and monks among them, and they are not arrogant.
5:83. When they hear what was revealed to the messenger, you see their eyes flooding with tears as they recognize the truth therein, and they say, “Our Lord, we have believed, so count us among the witnesses.
5:84. “Why should we not believe in God, and in the truth that has come to us, and hope that our Lord may admit us with the righteous people?”
5:85. God has rewarded them for saying this; He will admit them into gardens with flowing streams. They abide therein forever. Such is the reward for the righteous.

5:86. As for those who disbelieve and reject our revelations, they are the dwellers of Hell.

____________________________________________________

5:110. God will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, remember My blessings upon you and your mother. I supported you with the Holy Spirit, to enable you to speak to the people from the crib, as well as an adult. I taught you the scripture, wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel. Recall that you created from clay the shape of a bird by My leave, then blew into it, and it became a live bird by My leave. You healed the blind and the leprous by My leave, and revived the dead by My leave. Recall that I protected you from the Children of Israel (15) who wanted to hurt you, despite the profound miracles you had shown them. The disbelievers among them said, 'This is obviously magic.'

Quran, the Whole Quran, and Nothing But the Quran

6:19. Say, “Whose testimony is the greatest?” Say, “God's. He is the witness between me and you that this Quran has been inspired to me, to preach it to you and whomever it reaches. Indeed, you bear witness that there are other gods beside God.” Say, “I do not testify as you do; there is only One god, and I disown your idolatry.”
6:20. Those to whom we have given the scripture recognize this as they recognize their own children. The ones who lose their souls are those who do not believe.
6:21. Who is more evil than one who lies about God, or rejects His revelations? The transgressors never succeed.

Abraham Debates With Idol Worshipers
6:74. Recall that Abraham said to his father Aazer, “How could you worship statues as gods? I see that you and your people have gone far astray.”
6:75. We showed Abraham the marvels of the heavens and the earth, and blessed him with certainty:
6:76. When the night fell, he saw a shining planet. “Maybe this is my Lord,” he said. When it disappeared, he said, “I do not like (gods) that disappear.”
6:77. When he saw the moon rising, he said, “Maybe this is my Lord!” When it disappeared, he said, “Unless my Lord guides me, I will be with the strayers.”
6:78. When he saw the sun rising, he said, “This must be my Lord. This is the biggest.” But when it set, he said, “O my people, I denounce your idolatry.”
6:79. “I have devoted myself absolutely to the One who initiated the heavens and the earth; I will never be an idol worshiper.
6:80. His people argued with him. He said, “Do you argue with me about God, after He has guided me? I have no fear of the idols you set up. Nothing can happen to me, unless my Lord wills it. My Lord's knowledge encompasses all things. Would you not take heed?
6:81. “Why should I fear your idols? It is you who should be afraid, since you worship instead of God idols that are utterly powerless to help you. Which side is more deserving of security, if you know?”

Perfect Security for Believers
6:82. Those who believe, and do not pollute their belief with idol worship, have deserved the perfect security, and they are truly guided.
6:83. Such was our argument, with which we supported Abraham against his people. We exalt whomever we will to higher ranks. Your Lord is Most Wise, Omniscient.
6:84. And we granted him Isaac and Jacob, and we guided both of them. Similarly, we guided Noah before that, and from his descendants (we guided) David, Solomon, Job, Joseph,
Moses (21), and Aaron. We thus reward the righteous.
6:85. Also, Zachariah, John, Jesus, and Elias; all were righteous.
6:86. And Ismail, Elisha, Jonah, and Lot; each of these we distinguished over all the people.
6:87. From among their ancestors, their descendants, and their siblings, we chose many, and we guided them in a straight path.
6:88. Such is God's guidance, with which He guides whomever He chooses from among His servants. Had any of them fallen into idolatry, their works would have been nullified.
6:89. Those were the ones to whom we have given the scripture, wisdom, and prophethood. If these people disbelieve, we will substitute others in their place, and the new people will not be disbelievers.
6:90. These are the ones guided by God; you shall be guided in their footsteps. Say, “I do not ask you for any wage. This is but a message for all the people.”
 
God's Messages to the World
6:91. They never valued God as He should be valued. Thus, they said, “God does not reveal anything to any human being.” Say, “Who then revealed the scripture that Moses (22) brought, with light and guidance for the people?” You put it down on paper to proclaim it, while concealing a lot of it. You were taught what you never Knew - you and your parents. Say, “God (is the One who revealed it),” then leave them in their heedlessness, playing.
6:92. This too is a blessed scripture that we have revealed, confirming the previous scriptures, that you may warn the most important community and all those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter will believe in this (scripture), and will observe the Contact Prayers (Salat).

Quran: Fully Detailed
6:114. Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? Those who received the scripture recognize that it has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt.
6:115. The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.

The Only Dietary Prohibitions
6:145. Say, “I do not find in the revelations given to me any food that is prohibited for any eater except: (1) carrion, (2) running blood, (3) the meat of pigs, for it is contaminated, and (4) the meat of animals blasphemously dedicated to other than God.” If one is forced (to eat these), without being deliberate or malicious, then your Lord is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
6:146. For those who are Jewish we prohibited animals with undivided hoofs; and of the cattle and sheep we prohibited the fat, except that which is carried on their backs, or in the viscera, or mixed with bones. That was a retribution for their transgressions, and we are truthful.

The Major Commandments
6:151. Say, “Come let me tell you what your Lord has really prohibited for you: You shall not set up idols besides Him. You shall honor your parents. You shall not kill your children for the fear of poverty – we provide for you and for them. You shall not commit gross sins, obvious or hidden. You shall not kill - God has made life sacred - except in the course of justice. These are His commandments to you, that you may understand.”

Additional Commandments
6:152. You shall not touch the orphans' money except in the most righteous manner, until they reach maturity. You shall give full weight and full measure when you trade, equitably. We do not burden any soul beyond its means. You shall be absolutely just when you bear witness, even against your relatives. You shall fulfill your covenant with God. These are His commandments to you, that you may take heed.
6:153. This is my path - a straight one. You shall follow it, and do not follow any other paths, lest they divert you from His path. These are His commandments to you, that you may be saved.
6:154. And we gave
Moses (23) the scripture, complete with the best commandments, and detailing everything, and a beacon and mercy, that they may believe in meeting their Lord.
6:155. This too is a blessed scripture that we have revealed; you shall follow it and lead a righteous life, that you may attain mercy.
6:156. Now you can no longer say, “The scripture was sent down to two groups before us, and we were unaware of their teachings.”

Mathematics: The Ultimate Proof
6:157. Nor can you say, “If only a scripture could come down to us, we would be better guided than they.” A proven scripture has now come to you from your Lord, and a beacon, and a mercy. Now, who is more evil than one who rejects these proofs from God, and disregards them? We will commit those who disregard our proofs to the worst retribution, for their heedlessness.

6:161. Say, “My Lord has guided me in a straight path - the perfect religion of Abraham, monotheism. He never was an idol worshiper.”
6:162. Say, “My Contact Prayers (Salat), my worship practices, my life and my death, are all devoted absolutely to God alone, the Lord of the universe.
6:163. “He has no partner. This is what I am commanded to believe, and I am the first to submit.”
6:164. Say, “Shall I seek other than God as a lord, when He is the Lord of
all things? No soul benefits except from its own works, and none bears the burden of another. Ultimately, you return to your Lord, then He informs you regarding all your disputes.”
6:165. He is the One who made you inheritors of the earth, and He raised some of you above others in rank, in order to test you in accordance with what He has given you. Surely, your Lord is efficient in enforcing retribution, and He is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

Moses
7:103. After (those messengers,) we sent Moses (24) with our signs to Pharaoh and his people, but they transgressed. Note the consequences for the wicked.
7:104.
Moses (25) said, “O Pharaoh, I am a messenger from the Lord of the universe.
7:105. “It is incumbent upon me that I do not say about God except the truth. I come to you with a sign from your Lord; let the Children of
Israel (16) go.”
7:106. He said, “If you have a sign, then produce it, if you are truthful.”

7:107. He threw down his staff, and it turned into a tremendous serpent.
7:108. He took out his hand, and it was white to the beholders.
7:109. The leaders among Pharaoh's people said, “This is no more than a clever magician.
7:110. “He wants to take you out of your land; what do you recommend?”
7:111. They said, “Respite him and his brother, and send summoners to every city.
7:112. “Let them summon every experienced magician.”
7:113. The magicians came to Pharaoh and said, “Do we get paid if we are the winners?”
7:114. He said, “Yes indeed; you will even become close to me.”
7:115. They said, “O Moses (26), either you throw, or we are throwing.”
7:116. He said, “You throw.” When they threw, they tricked the people's eyes, intimidated them, and produced a great magic.
7:117. We then inspired
Moses (27): “Throw down your staff,” whereupon it swallowed whatever they fabricated.

The Truth Recognized by the Experts
7:118. Thus, the truth prevailed, and what they did was nullified.
7:119. They were defeated then and there; they were humiliated.
7:120. The magicians fell prostrate.
7:121. They said, “We believe in the Lord of the universe.

7:122. “The Lord of Moses (28) and Aaron.”

7:123. Pharaoh said, “Did you believe in him without my permission? This must be a conspiracy you schemed in the city, in order to take its people away. You will surely find out.
7:124. “I will cut your hands and feet on alternate sides, then I will crucify you all.”

7:125. They said, “We will then return to our Lord.
7:126. “You persecute us simply because we believed in the proofs of our Lord when they came to us.” “Our Lord, grant us steadfastness, and let us die as submitters.”
7:127. The leaders among Pharaoh's people said, “Will you allow
Moses (29) and his people to corrupt the earth, and forsake you and your gods?” He said, “We will kill their sons, and spare their daughters. We are much more powerful than they are.”
7:128.
Moses (30) said to his people, “Seek God's help, and steadfastly persevere. The earth belongs to God, and He grants it to whomever He chooses from among His servants. The ultimate victory belongs to the righteous.”
7:129. They said, “We were persecuted before you came to us, and after you came to us.” He said, “Your Lord will annihilate your enemy and establish you on earth, then He will see how you behave.”

The Plagues
7:130. We then afflicted Pharaoh's people with drought, and shortage of crops, that they may take heed.
7:131. When good omens came their way, they said, “We have deserved this,” but when a hardship afflicted them, they blamed
Moses (31) and those with him. In fact, their omens are decided only by God, but most of them do not know.
7:132. They said, “No matter what kind of sign you show us, to dupe us with your magic, we will not believe.”

The Warnings Go Unheeded
7:133. Consequently, we sent upon them the flood, the locusts, the lice, the frogs, and the blood - profound signs. But they maintained their arrogance. They were evil people.
7:134. Whenever a plague afflicted them, they said, “O
Moses (32), implore your Lord - you are close to Him. If you relieve this plague, we will believe with you, and will send the Children of Israel (17) with you.”
7:135. Yet, when we relieved the plague for any length of time, they violated their pledge.

The Inevitable Retribution
7:136. Consequently, we avenged their actions, and drowned them in the sea. That is because they rejected our signs, and were totally heedless thereof.
7:137. We let the oppressed people inherit the land, east and west, and we blessed it. The blessed commands of your Lord were thus fulfilled for the Children of
Israel (18), to reward them for their steadfastness, and we annihilated the works of Pharaoh and his people and everything they harvested.

After All the Miracles
7:138. We delivered the Children of Israel (19) across the sea. When they passed by people who were worshiping statues, they said, “O Moses (33), make a god for us, like the gods they have.” He said, “Indeed, you are ignorant people.
7:139. “These people are committing a blasphemy, for what they are doing is disastrous for them.
7:140. “Shall I seek for you other than God to be your god, when He has blessed you more than anyone else in the world?”

Reminder to the Children of Israel
7:141. Recall that we delivered you from Pharaoh's people, who inflicted the worst persecution upon you, killing your sons and sparing your daughters. That was an exacting trial for you from your Lord.

Our World Cannot Stand the Physical Presence of God
7:142. We summoned Moses (34) for thirty nights, and completed them by adding ten. Thus, the audience with his Lord lasted forty nights. Moses (35) said to his brother Aaron, “Stay here with my people, maintain righteousness, and do not follow the ways of the corruptors.”
7:143. When
Moses (36) came at our appointed time, and his Lord spoke with him, he said, “My Lord, let me look and see You.” He said, “You cannot see Me. Look at that mountain; if it stays in its place, then you can see Me.” Then, his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain, and this caused it to crumble. Moses (37) fell unconscious. When he came to, he said, “Be You glorified. I repent to You, and I am the most convinced believer.”
7:144. He said, “O
Moses (38), I have chosen you, out of all the people, with My messages and by speaking to you. Therefore, take what I have given you and be appreciative.”
7:145. We wrote for him on the tablets all kinds of enlightenment and details of everything: “You shall uphold these teachings strongly, and exhort your people to uphold them - these are the best teachings. I will point out for you the fate of the wicked.”

Divine Intervention Keeps the Disbelievers in the Dark
7:146. I will divert from My revelations those who are arrogant on earth, without justification. Consequently, when they see every kind of proof they will not believe. And when they see the path of guidance they will not adopt it as their path, but when they see the path of straying they will adopt it as their path. This is the consequence of their rejecting our proofs, and being totally heedless thereof.
7:147. Those who reject our revelations and the meeting of the Hereafter, their works are nullified. Are they requited only for what they committed?

The Golden Calf
7:148. During his absence, Moses' (39) people made from their jewelry the statue of a calf, complete with the sound of a calf. Did they not see that it could not speak to them, or guide them in any path? They worshiped it, and thus turned wicked.
7:149. Finally, when they regretted their action, and realized that they had gone astray, they said, “Unless our Lord redeems us with His mercy, and forgives us, we will be losers."

7:150. When
Moses (40) returned to his people, angry and disappointed, he said, “What a terrible thing you have done in my absence! Could you not wait for the commandments of your Lord?” He threw down the tablets, and took hold of his brother's head, pulling him towards himself. (Aaron) said, “Son of my mother, the people took advantage of my weakness, and almost killed me. Let not my enemies rejoice, and do not count me with the transgressing people.”
7:151. (Moses) said, “My Lord, forgive me and my brother, and admit us into Your mercy. Of all the merciful ones, You are the Most Merciful.”
7:152. Surely, those who idolized the calf have incurred wrath from their Lord, and humiliation in this life. We thus requite the innovators.
7:153. As for those who committed sins, then repented thereafter and believed, your Lord - after this - is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
7:154. When
Moses' (41) anger subsided, he picked up the tablets, containing guidance and mercy for those who reverence their Lord.
7:155.
Moses (42) then selected seventy men from among his people, to come to our appointed audience. When the quake shook them, he said, “My Lord, You could have annihilated them in the past, together with me, if You so willed. Would You annihilate us for the deeds of those among us who are foolish? This must be the test that You have instituted for us. With it, You condemn whomever You will, and guide whomever You will. You are our Lord and Master, so forgive us, shower us with Your mercy; You are the best Forgiver.

Requirements For Attaining God's Mercy
7:156. “And decree for us righteousness in this world, and in the Hereafter. We have repented to You.” He said, “My retribution befalls whomever I will. But My mercy encompasses all things. However, I will specify it for those who (1) lead a righteous life, (2) give the obligatory charity (Zakat), (3) believe in our revelations, and
7:157. “(4) follow the messenger, the gentile prophet (Mohammad), whom they find written in their Torah and Gospel. He exhorts them to be righteous, enjoins them from evil, allows for them all good food, and prohibits that which is bad, and unloads the burdens and the shackles imposed upon them. Those who believe in him, respect him, support him, and follow the light that came with him are the successful ones.”

7:158. Say, “O people, I am God's messenger to all of you. To Him belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. There is no god except He. He controls life and death.” Therefore, you shall believe in God and His messenger, the gentile prophet, who believes in God and His words. Follow him, that you may be guided.

The Guided Jews
7:159. Among the followers of Moses (43) there are those who guide in accordance with the truth, and the truth renders them righteous.

Miracles in Sinai
7:160. We divided them into twelve tribal communities, and we inspired Moses (44) when his people asked him for water: “Strike the rock with your staff,” whereupon twelve springs gushed out there-from. Thus, each community knew its water. And we shaded them with clouds, and sent down to them manna and quails: “Eat from the good things we provided for you.” It is not us that they wronged; it is they who wronged their own souls.

Rebellion Despite the Miracles
7:161. Recall that they were told, “Go into this town to live, and eat there-from as you please, treat the people amicably, and enter the gate humbly. We will then forgive your transgressions. We will multiply the reward for the righteous.”
7:162. But the evil ones among them substituted other commands for the commands given to them. Consequently, we sent upon them condemnation from the sky, because of their wickedness.

Observing the Commandments Brings Prosperity
7:163. Remind them of the community by the sea, who desecrated the Sabbath. When they observed the Sabbath, the fish came to them abundantly. And when they violated the Sabbath, the fish did not come. We thus afflicted them, as a consequence of their transgression.

Mocking and Ridiculing God's Message
7:164. Recall that a group of them said, “Why should you preach to people whom God will surely annihilate or punish severely?” They answered, “Apologize to your Lord,” that they might be saved.
7:165. When they disregarded what they were reminded of, we saved those who prohibited evil, and afflicted the wrongdoers with a terrible retribution for their wickedness.
7:166. When they continued to defy the commandments, we said to them, “Be you despicable apes.”

7:167. Additionally, your Lord has decreed that He will raise up against them people who will inflict severe persecution upon them, until the Day of Resurrection. Your Lord is most efficient in enforcing retribution, and He is certainly the Forgiver, Most Merciful.
7:168. We scattered them among many communities throughout the land. Some of them were righteous, and some were less than righteous. We tested them with prosperity and hardship that they may return.

Blasphemies

9:30. The Jews said, “Ezra is the son of God,” while the Christians said, “The Messiah is the son of God!” These are blasphemies uttered by their mouths. They thus match the blasphemies of those who have disbelieved in the past. God condemns them. They have surely deviated.

Upholding the Teachings of Religious Leaders Instead of God's Teachings

9:31. They have set up their religious leaders and scholars as lords, instead of God. Others deified the Messiah, son of Mary. They were all commanded to worship only One god. There is no god except He. Be He glorified, high above having any partners.

Moses and Aaron
10:75. Then we sent after them Moses (45) and Aaron to Pharaoh and his group, with our proofs. But they turned arrogant, and were transgressing people.
10:76. When the truth came to them from us, they said, “This is obviously magic!”
10:77.
Moses (46) said, “Is this how you describe the truth when it comes to you? Is this magic? How can any magicians prevail?”

10:78. They said, “Did you come to divert us from what we found our parents doing, and to attain positions of prominence for yourselves? We will never join you as believers.”

The Truth Prevails
10:79. Pharaoh said, “Bring to me every experienced magician.”
10:80. When the magicians came, Moses (47) said to them, “Throw whatever you are going to throw.”
10:81. When they threw,
Moses (48) said, “What you have produced is magic, and God will make it fail. God does not support the transgressors' work.”
10:82. God establishes the truth with His words, despite the criminals.
10:83. None believed with
Moses (49) except a few of his people, while fearing the tyranny of Pharaoh and his elders. Surely, Pharaoh was much too arrogant on earth, and a real tyrant.
10:84.
Moses (50) said, “O my people, if you have really believed in God, then put your trust in Him, if you are really submitters.”
10:85. They said, “We trust in God. Our Lord, save us from the persecution of these oppressive people.
10:86. “Deliver us, with Your mercy, from the disbelieving people.”
10:87. We inspired
Moses (51) and his brother, “Maintain your homes in Egypt for the time being, turn your homes into synagogues, and maintain the Contact Prayers (Salat). Give good news to the believers.”
10:88.
Moses (52) said, “Our Lord, you have given Pharaoh and his elders luxuries and wealth in this world. Our Lord, they only use them to repulse others from Your path. Our Lord, wipe out their wealth, and harden their hearts to prevent them from believing, until they see the painful retribution.”
10:89. He said, “Your prayer has been answered (O Moses and Aaron), so be steadfast, and do not follow the ways of those who do not know.”
10:90. We delivered the Children of
Israel (20) across the sea. Pharaoh and his troops pursued them, aggressively and sinfully. When drowning became a reality for him, he said, “I believe that there is no god **** except the One in whom the Children of Israel (21) have believed; I am a submitter.”
10:91. “Too late! For you have rebelled already, and chose to be a transgressor.

Pharaoh's Body Preserved
10:92. “Today, we will preserve your body, to set you up as a lesson for future generations.” Unfortunately, many people are totally oblivious to our signs.
Footnote 10:92. God endowed the Egyptians with the exclusive knowledge of mummification. Today, Pharaoh’s body is on display at the Cairo Museum. 

10:93. We have endowed the Children of Israel (22) with a position of honor, and blessed them with good provisions. Yet, they disputed when this knowledge came to them. Your Lord will judge them on the Day of Resurrection regarding everything they disputed.

The Messenger's Doubt
10:94. If you have any doubt regarding what is revealed to you from your Lord, then ask those who read the previous scripture. Indeed, the truth has come to you from your Lord. Do not be with the doubters.
10:95. Nor shall you join those who rejected God's revelations, lest you be with the losers.

10:96. Surely, those condemned by a decree from your Lord cannot believe.
10:97. No matter what kind of proof you show them, (they cannot believe), until they see the painful retribution.

10:108. Proclaim: “O people, the truth has come to you herein from your Lord. Whoever is guided, is guided for his own good. And whoever goes astray, goes astray to his own detriment. I am not a guardian over you.”
10:109. Follow what is revealed to you, and be patient until God issues His judgment; He is the best judge.

11:1. A.L.R., this is a scripture whose verses have been perfected, then elucidated. It comes from the Most Wise, Most Cognizant.

The Quran: Messenger of God

11:2. Proclaiming: “You shall not worship except God. I come to you from Him as a Warner, as well as a bearer of good news.
11:3. “You shall seek your Lord's forgiveness, then repent to Him. He will then bless you generously for a predetermined period, and bestow His grace upon those who deserve it. If you turn away, then I fear for you the retribution of an awesome day.”

The Quran: Impossible to Imitate

11:13. If they say, “He fabricated (the Quran),” tell them, “Then produce ten Suras like these, fabricated, and invite whomever you can, other than God, if you are truthful.”
11:14. If they fail to meet your challenge, then know that this is revealed with God's knowledge, and that there is no god except He. Will you then submit?

The Quran's Mathematical Code
11:17. As for those who are given solid proof from their Lord, reported by a witness from Him, and before it, the book of Moses (53) has set a precedent and a mercy, they will surely believe. As for those who disbelieve among the various groups, Hell is awaiting them. Do not harbor any doubt; this is the truth from your Lord, but most people disbelieve.

Abraham and Lot
11:69. When our messengers went to Abraham with good news, they said, “Peace.” He said, “Peace,” and soon brought a roasted calf.
11:70. When he saw that their hands did not touch it, he became suspicious and fearful of them. They said, “Do not be afraid, we are being dispatched to the people of Lot.”
11:71. His wife was standing, and she laughed when we gave her the good news about Isaac, and after Isaac, Jacob.
11:72. She said, “Woe to me, how could I bear a child at my age, and here is my husband; an old man? This is really strange!”
11:73. They said, “Do you find it strange for God? God has bestowed His mercy and blessings upon you, O inhabitants of the shrine. He is Praiseworthy, Glorious.”

Moses
11:96. We sent Moses (54) with our signs and a profound authority.
11:97. To Pharaoh and his elders. But they followed the command of Pharaoh, and Pharaoh's command was not wise.
11:98. He will lead his people on the Day of Resurrection, all the way to Hell; what a miserable abode to live in!
11:99. They have incurred condemnation in this life, as well as on the Day of Resurrection; what a miserable path to follow!

11:110. We have given Moses (55) the scripture, but it was disputed, and if it were not for a predetermined word decreed by your Lord, they would have been judged immediately. They are full of doubt about this, suspicious.
11:111. Your Lord will surely recompense everyone for their works. He is fully Cognizant of everything they do.


12:3. We narrate to you the most accurate history through the revelation of this Quran. Before this, you were totally unaware.
12:4. Recall that Joseph said to his father, “O my father, I saw eleven planets, and the sun, and the moon; I saw them prostrating before me.”

12:5. He said, “My son, do not tell your brothers about your dream, lest they plot and scheme against you. Surely, the devil is man's worst enemy.
12:6. “Your Lord has thus blessed you, and has given you good news through your dream. He has perfected His blessings upon you and upon the family of Jacob, as He did for your ancestors Abraham and Isaac before that. Your Lord is Omniscient, Most Wise.
12:7. In Joseph and his brothers there are lessons for the seekers.
12:8. They said, “Joseph and his brother are favored by our father, and we are in the majority. Indeed, our father is far astray.

Joseph's Fate Already Decided by God
12:9. “Let us kill Joseph, or banish him, that you may get some attention from your father. Afterwards, you can be righteous people.”
12:10. One of them said, “Do not kill Joseph; let us throw him into the abyss of the well. Perhaps some caravan can pick him up, if this is what you decide to do.”
12:11. They said, “Our father, why do you not trust us with Joseph? We will take good care of him.
12:12. “Send him with us tomorrow to run and play. We will protect him.”

12:13. He said, “I worry lest you go away with him, then the wolf may devour him while you are not watching him.”
12:14. They said, “Indeed, if the wolf devours him, with so many of us around, then we are really losers.”

Believers are Blessed with God's Assurances
12:15. When they went away with him, and unanimously decided to throw him into the abyss of the well, we inspired him: “Some day, you will tell them about all this, while they have no idea.”
12:16. They came back to their father in the evening, weeping.
12:17. They said, “Our father, we went racing with each other, leaving Joseph with our equipment, and the wolf devoured him. You will never believe us, even if we were telling the truth.”
12:18. They produced his shirt with fake blood on it. He said, “Indeed, you have conspired with each other to commit a certain scheme. All I can do is resort to a quiet patience. May God help me in the face of your conspiracy.”

Joseph is Taken to Egypt
12:19. A caravan passed by, and soon sent their waterer. He let down his bucket, then said, “How lucky! There is a boy here!” They took him along as merchandise, and God was fully aware of what they did.
12:20. They sold him for a cheap price - a few Dirhams - for they did not have any need for him.
12:21. The one who bought him in Egypt said to his wife, “Take good care of him. Maybe he can help us, or maybe we can adopt him.” We thus established Joseph on earth, and we taught him the interpretation of dreams. God's command is always done, but most people do not know.
12:22. When he reached maturity, we endowed him with wisdom and knowledge. We thus reward the righteous.

God Protects the Believers From Sin
12:23. The lady of the house where he lived tried to seduce him. She closed the doors and said, “I am all yours.” He said, “May God protect me. He is my Lord, who gave me a good home. The transgressors never succeed.”
12:24. She almost succumbed to him, and he almost succumbed to her, if it were not that he saw a proof from his Lord. We thus diverted evil and sin away from him, for he was one of our devoted servants.
12:25. The two of them raced towards the door, and, in the process, she tore his garment from the back. They found her husband at the door. She said, “What should be the punishment for one who wanted to molest your wife, except imprisonment or a painful punishment?”
12:26. He said, “She is the one who tried to seduce me.” A witness from her family suggested: “If his garment is torn from the front, then she is telling the truth and he is a liar.
12:27. “And if his garment is torn from the back, then she lied, and he is telling the truth.”

12:28. When her husband saw that his garment was torn from the back, he said, “This is a woman's scheme. Indeed, your scheming is formidable.
12:29. “Joseph, disregard this incident. As for you (my wife), you should seek forgiveness for your sin. You have committed an error.”

12:30. Some women in the city gossiped: “The governor's wife is trying to seduce her servant. She is deeply in love with him. We see that she has gone astray.”
12:31. When she heard of their gossip, she invited them, prepared for them a comfortable place, and gave each of them a knife. She then said to him, “Enter their room.” When they saw him, they so admired him, that they cut their hands. They said, “Glory be to God, this is not a human being; this is an honorable angel.”
12:32. She said, “This is the one you blamed me for falling in love with. I did indeed try to seduce him, and he refused. Unless he does what I command him to do, he will surely go to prison, and will be debased.”
12:33. He said, “My Lord, the prison is better than giving in to them. Unless You divert their scheming from me, I may desire them and behave like the ignorant ones.”
12:34. His Lord answered his prayer and diverted their scheming from him. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.
12:35. Later, they saw to it, despite the clear proofs, that they should imprison him for awhile.
12:36. Two young men were in the prison with him. One of them said, “I saw (in my dream) that I was making wine,” and the other said, “I saw myself carrying bread on my head, from which the birds were eating. Inform us of the interpretation of these dreams. We see that you are righteous.”

12:37. He said, “If any food is provided to you, I can inform you about it before you receive it. This is some of the knowledge bestowed upon me by my Lord. I have forsaken the religion of people who do not believe in God, and with regard to the Hereafter, they are really disbelievers.
12:38. “And I followed instead the religion of my ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We never set up any idols beside God. Such is the blessing from God upon us and upon the people, but most people are unappreciative.
12:39. “O my prison mates, are several gods better, or God alone, the One, the Supreme?

12:40. “You do not worship beside Him except innovations that you have made up, you and your parents. God has never authorized such idols. All ruling belongs to God, and He has ruled that you shall not worship except Him. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.
12:41. “O my prison mates, one of you will be the wine butler for his lord, while the other will be crucified - the birds will eat from his head. This settles the matter about which you have inquired.”
12:42. He then said to the one to be saved “Remember me at your lord.” Thus, the devil caused him to forget his Lord, and, consequently, he remained in prison a few more years.

The King's Dream
12:43. The king said, “I saw seven fat cows being devoured by seven skinny cows, and seven green spikes (of wheat), and others shriveled. O my elders, advise me regarding my dream, if you know how to interpret the dreams.”
12:44. They said, “Nonsense dreams. When it comes to the interpretations of dreams, we are not knowledgeable.”
12:45. The one who was saved (from the prison), now that he finally remembered, said “I can tell you its interpretation, so send me (to Joseph).”

Joseph Interprets the King's Dream
12:46. “Joseph my friend, inform us about seven fat cows being devoured by seven skinny cows, and seven green spikes, and others shriveled. I wish to go back with some information for the people.”
12:47. He said, “What you cultivate during the next seven years, when the time of harvest comes, leave the grains in their spikes, except for what you eat.
12:48. “After that, seven years of drought will come, which will consume most of what you stored for them.
12:49. “After that, a year will come that brings relief for the people, and they will, once again, press juice.”

12:50. The king said, “Bring him to me.” When the messenger came to him, he said, “Go back to your lord and ask him to investigate the women who cut their hands. My Lord is fully aware of their schemes.”
12:51. (The king) said (to the women), “What do you know about the incident when you tried to seduce Joseph?” They said, “God forbid; we did not know of anything evil committed by him.” The wife of the governor said, “Now the truth has prevailed. I am the one who tried to seduce him, and he was the truthful one.
12:52. “I hope that he will realize that I never betrayed him in his absence, for God does not bless the schemes of the betrayers.
12:53. “I do not claim innocence for my self. The self is an advocate of vice, except for those who have attained mercy from my Lord. My Lord is Forgiver, Most Merciful.”

Joseph Attains Prominence
12:54. The king said, “Bring him to me, so I can hire him to work for me.” When he talked with him, he said, “Today, you have a prominent position with us.”
12:55. He said, “Make me the treasurer, for I am experienced in this area and knowledgeable.”
12:56. We thus established Joseph on earth, ruling as he wished. We shower our mercy upon whomever we will, and we never fail to recompense the righteous.
12:57. Additionally, the reward in the Hereafter is even better for those who believe and lead a righteous life.
12:58. Joseph's brothers came; when they entered, he recognized them, while they did not recognize him.
12:59. After he provided them with their provisions, he said, “Next time, bring with you your half-brother. Do you not see that I give full measure, and treat you generously?
12:60. “If you fail to bring him to me, you will get no share from me; you will not even come close.”
12:61. They said, “We will negotiate with his father about him. We will surely do this.”
12:62. He then instructed his assistants: “Put their goods back in their bags. When they find them upon their return to their family, they may come back sooner.”
12:63. When they returned to their father, they said, “Our father, we can no longer get any provisions, unless you send our brother with us. We will take good care of him.”

12:64. He said, “Shall I trust you with him, as I trusted you with his brother before that? God is the best Protector, and, of all the merciful ones, He is the Most Merciful.”
12:65. When they opened their bags, they found their goods returned to them. They said, “Our father, what more can we ask for? Here are our goods returned to us. We can thus provide for our family, protect our brother, and receive one more camel-load. This is certainly a profitable deal.”

12:66. He said, “I will not send him with you, unless you give me a solemn pledge before God that you will bring him back, unless you are utterly overwhelmed.” When they gave him their solemn pledge, he said, “God is witnessing everything we say.”
12:67. And he said, “O my sons, do not enter from one door; enter through separate doors. However, I cannot save you from anything that is predetermined by God. To God belongs all judgments. I trust in Him, and in Him all those who trust shall put their trust.”

Jacob Senses Joseph
12:68. When they went (to Joseph), they entered in accordance with their father's instructions. Although this could not change anything decreed by God, Jacob had a private reason for asking them to do this. For he possessed certain knowledge that we taught him, but most people do not know.

Back in Egypt
12:69. When they entered Joseph's place, he brought his brother closer to him and said, “I am your brother; do not be saddened by their actions.”

Joseph Keeps His Brother
12:70. When he provided them with their provisions, he placed the drinking cup in his brother's bag, then an announcer announced: “The owners of this caravan are thieves.”
12:71. They said, as they came towards them, “What did you lose?”

12:72. They said, “We lost the king's cup. Anyone who returns it will receive an extra camel-load; I personally guarantee this.”
12:73. They said, “By God, you know full well that we did not come here to commit evil, nor are we thieves.” 
12:74. They said, “What is the punishment for the thief, if you are liars?”
12:75. They said, “The punishment, if it is found in his bag, is that the thief belongs to you. We thus punish the guilty.”
12:76. He then started by inspecting their containers, before getting to his brother's container, and he extracted it out of his brother's container. We thus perfected the scheme for Joseph; he could not have kept his brother if he applied the king's law. But that was the will of God. We exalt whomever we choose to higher ranks. Above every knowledgeable one, there is one who is even more knowledgeable.
12:77. They said, “If he stole, so did a brother of his in the past.” Joseph concealed his feelings in himself, and did not give them any clue. He said (to himself), “You are really bad. God is fully aware of your accusations.”
12:78. They said, “O you noble one, he has a father who is elderly; would you take one of us in his place? We see that you are a kind man.”

12:79. He said, “God forbid that we should take other than the one in whose possession we found our goods. Otherwise, we would be unjust.”
12:80. When they despaired of changing his mind, they conferred together. Their eldest said, “Do you realize that your father has taken a solemn pledge from you before God? In the past you lost Joseph. I am not leaving this place until my father gives me permission, or until God judges for me; He is the best Judge.
12:81. “Go back to your father and tell him, “Our father, your son has committed a theft. We know for sure, because this is what we have witnessed. This was an unexpected occurrence.

12:82. “You may ask the community where we were, and the caravan that came back with us. We are telling the truth.”
12:83. He said, “Indeed, you have conspired to carry out a certain scheme. Quiet patience is my only recourse. May God bring them all back to me. He is the Omniscient, Most Wise.”
12:84. He turned away from them, saying, “I am grieving over Joseph.” His eyes turned white from grieving so much; he was truly sad.
12:85. They said, “By God, you will keep on grieving over Joseph until you become ill, or until you die.”

12:86. He said, “I simply complain to God about my dilemma and grief, for I know from God what you do not know.
12:87. “O my sons, go fetch Joseph and his brother, and never despair of God's grace. None despairs of God's grace except the disbelieving people.”

Israel Goes to Egypt
12:88. When they entered (Joseph's) quarters, they said, “O you noble one, we have suffered a lot of hardship, along with our family, and we have brought inferior goods. But we hope that you will give us full measure and be charitable to us. God rewards the charitable.”
12:89. He said, “Do you recall what you did to Joseph and his brother when you were ignorant?”
12:90. They said, “You must be Joseph.” He said, “I am Joseph, and here is my brother. God has blessed us. That is because if one leads a righteous life, and steadfastly perseveres, God never fails to reward the righteous.”
12:91. They said, “By God, God has truly preferred you over us. We were definitely wrong.”
12:92. He said, “There is no blame upon you today. May God forgive you. Of all the merciful ones, He is the Most Merciful.
12:93. “Take this shirt of mine; when you throw it on my father's face, his vision will be restored. Bring your whole family and come back to me.”
12:94. Even before the caravan arrived, their father said, “I can sense the smell of Joseph. Will someone enlighten me?”

12:95. They said, “By God, you are still in your old confusion.”
12:96. When the bearer of good news arrived, he threw (the shirt) on his face, whereupon his vision was restored. He said, “Did I not tell you that I knew from God what you did not know?”

12:97. They said, “Our father, pray for our forgiveness; we were wrong indeed.”
12:98. He said, “I will implore my Lord to forgive you; He is the Forgiver, Most Merciful.”

In Egypt
12:99. When they entered Joseph's quarters, he embraced his parents, saying, “Welcome to Egypt. God willing, you will be safe here.”
12:100. He raised his parents upon the throne. They fell prostrate before him. He said, “O my father, this is the fulfillment of my old dream. My Lord has made it come true. He has blessed me, delivered me from the prison, and brought you from the desert, after the devil had driven a wedge between me and my brothers. My Lord is Most Kind towards whomever He wills. He is the Knower, the Most Wise.”
12:101. “My Lord, You have given me kingship and taught me the interpretation of dreams. Initiator of the heavens and the earth; You are my Lord and Master in this life and in the Hereafter. Let me die as a submitter, and count me with the righteous.”

12:102. This is news from the past that we reveal to you. You were not present when they made their unanimous decision, as they conspired together, (to throw Joseph in the well).

Moses
14:5. Thus, we sent Moses (56) with our miracles, saying, “Lead your people out of darkness into the light, and remind them of the days of God.” These are lessons for every steadfast, appreciative person.
14:6. Recall that
Moses
(57) said to his people, “Remember God's blessings upon you. He saved you from Pharaoh's people who inflicted the worst persecution upon you, slaughtering your sons and sparing your daughters. That was an exacting trial from your Lord.”
14:7. Your Lord has decreed: “The more you thank Me, the more I give you.” But if you turn unappreciative, then My retribution is severe.
14:8.
Moses
(58) said, “If you disbelieve, together with all the people on earth, God is in no need, Praiseworthy.”

New Heavens and New Earth
14:48. The day will come when this earth will be substituted with a new earth, and also the heavens, and everyone will be brought before God, the One, the Supreme.
14:49. And you will see the guilty on that day chained in shackles.

14:50. Their garments will be made of tar, and fire will overwhelm their faces.
51. For God will pay each soul for whatever it earned; God is the most Efficient Reckoner.

14:52. This is a proclamation for the people, to be warned herewith, and to let them know that He is only One god, and for those who possess intelligence to take heed.


An Important Commandment
16:98. When you read the Quran, you shall seek refuge in God from Satan the rejected.
16:99. He has no power over those who believe and trust in their Lord.
16:100. His power is limited to those who choose him as their master; those who choose him as their god.

16:101. When we substitute one revelation in place of another, and God is fully aware of what He reveals, they say, “You made this up!” Indeed, most of them do not know.
16:102. Say, “The Holy Spirit has brought it down from your Lord, truthfully, to assure those who believe, and to provide a beacon and good news for the submitters.”

The Quran Is Not Copied From The Bible
16:103. We are fully aware that they say, “A human being is teaching him!” The tongue of the source they hint at is non-Arabic, and this is a perfect Arabic tongue.
16:104. Surely, those who do not believe in God's revelations, God does not guide them. They have incurred a painful retribution.
16:105. Those who fabricate false doctrines are the ones who do not believe in God's revelations; they are the real liars.

Prohibiting Lawful Food Brings Deprivation
16:112. God cites the example of a community that used to be secure and prosperous, with provisions coming to it from everywhere. But then, it turned unappreciative of God's blessings. Consequently, God caused them to taste the hardships of starvation and insecurity. Such is the requital for what they did.
16:113. A messenger had gone to them from among them, but they rejected him. Consequently, the retribution struck them for their transgression.
16:114. Therefore, you shall eat from God's provisions everything that is lawful and good, and be appreciative of God's blessings, if you do worship Him alone.

Only Four Foods Prohibited
16:115. He only prohibits for you dead animals, blood, the meat of pigs, and food which is dedicated to other than God. If one is forced (to eat these), without being deliberate or malicious, then God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
16:116. You shall not utter lies with your own tongues stating: “This is lawful, and this is unlawful,” to fabricate lies and attribute them to God. Surely, those who fabricate lies and attribute them to God will never succeed.
16:117. They enjoy briefly, then suffer painful retribution.
16:118. For the Jews, we prohibited what we narrated to you previously. It was not us who wronged them; they are the ones who wronged their own souls.
16:119. Yet, your Lord to those who fall in sin out of ignorance then repent thereafter and reform, your Lord, after this is done, is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

The Sabbath Abrogated
16:124. The Sabbath was decreed only for those who ended up disputing it (Jews & Christians). Your Lord is the One who will judge them on the Day of Resurrection regarding their disputes.


 

Sura 17: The Children of Israel
In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

17:1. Most glorified is the One who summoned His servant (Mohammad) during the night, from the Sacred Mosque (of Mecca) to the farthest place of prostration, whose surroundings we have blessed, in order to show him some of our signs. He is the Hearer, the Seer.
17:2. Similarly, we gave
Moses
(59) the scripture, and rendered it a beacon for the (22) Children of Israel (23) that: “You shall not set up any idol as a lord and master beside Me.”
17:3. They are descendants of those whom we carried with Noah; he was an appreciative servant.

17:4. We addressed the
(23) Children of Israel (24)
in the scripture: “You will commit gross evil on earth, twice. You are destined to fall into great heights of arrogance.
17:5. “When the first time comes to pass, we will send against you servants of ours who possess great might, and they will invade your homes. This is a prophecy that must come to pass.
17:6. “Afterwards, we will give you a turn over them, and will supply you with a lot of wealth and children; we will give you the upper hand.
17:7. “If you work righteousness, you work righteousness for your own good, but if you commit evil you do so to your own detriment. Thus, when the second time comes to pass, they will defeat you and enter the mosque, just as they did the first time. They will wipe out all the gains you had accomplished.”

Disbelievers Cannot Understand Quran
17:45. When you read the Quran, we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier.

Quran: The ONLY Source
17:46. We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you preach your Lord, using the Quran alone, they run away in aversion.

Healing and Mercy
17:82. We send down in the Quran healing and mercy for the believers. At the same time, it only increases the wickedness of the transgressors.

Mathematical Composition of the Quran
17:88. Say, “If all the humans and all the jinns banded together in order to produce a Quran like this, they can never produce anything like it, no matter how much assistance they lent one another.”
17:89. We have cited for the people in this Quran all kinds of examples, but most people insist upon disbelieving.

Moses and Pharaoh
17:101. We supported Moses (60) with nine profound miracles - ask the (24) Children of Israel (25). When he went to them, Pharaoh said to him, “I think that you, Moses (61), are bewitched.”
17:102. He said, “You know full well that no one can manifest these except, obviously, the Lord of the heavens and the earth. I think that you, Pharaoh, are doomed.”
17:103. When he pursued them, as he chased them out of the land, we drowned him, together with those who sided with him, all of them.
17:104. And we said to the
(25) Children of Israel (26)
afterwards, “Go live in this land. When the final prophecy comes to pass, we will summon you all in one group.”

The Quran Released Slowly To Facilitate Memorization
17:105. Truthfully, we sent it down, and with the truth it came down. We did not send you except as a bearer of good news, as well as a Warner.
17:106. A Quran that we have released slowly, in order for you to read it to the people over a long period, although we sent it down all at once.
17:107. Proclaim, “Believe in it, or do not believe in it.” Those who possess knowledge from the previous scriptures, when it is recited to them, they fall down on their chins, prostrating.
17:108. They say, “Glory be to our Lord. This fulfills our Lord's prophecy.”

17:109. They fall down on their chins, prostrating and weeping. For it augments their reverence.

17 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 = 111
Sura 17 has 111 verses!


18:60. Moses (62) said to his servant, “I will not rest until I reach the point where the two rivers meet, no matter how long it takes.”
18:61. When they reached the point where they met, they forgot their fish, and it found its way back to the river, sneakily.
18:62. After they passed that point, he said to his servant, “Let us have lunch. All this traveling has thoroughly exhausted us.”
18:63. He said, “Remember when we sat by the rock back there? I paid no attention to the fish. It was the devil who made me forget it, and it found its way back to the river, strangely.”
18:64. (Moses) said, “That was the place we were looking for.” They traced their steps back.
18:65. They found one of our servants, whom we blessed with mercy, and bestowed upon him from our own knowledge.
18:66.
Moses (63)
said to him, “Can I follow you, that you may teach me some of the knowledge and the guidance bestowed upon you?”

Moses
19:51. Mention in the scripture Moses (64). He was devoted, and he was a messenger prophet.
19:52. We called him from the right side of Mount Sinai. We brought him close, to confer with him.

19:53. And we granted him, out of our mercy, his brother Aaron as a prophet.

**** 19:58. These are some of the prophets whom God blessed. They were chosen from among the descendants of Adam, and the descendants of those whom we carried with Noah, and the descendants of Abraham and Israel (27), and from among those whom we guided and selected. When the revelations of the Most Gracious are recited to them, they fall prostrate, weeping.


20:2. We did not reveal the Quran to you, to cause you any hardship.

20:3. Only to remind the reverent.
20:4. A revelation from the Creator of the earth and the high heavens.
20:5. The Most Gracious; He has assumed all authority.
20:6. To Him belongs everything in the heavens, and the earth, and everything between them, and everything beneath the ground.

20:9. Have you noted the history of Moses (65)?
20:10. When he saw a fire, he said to his family, “Stay here. I have seen a fire. Maybe I can bring you some of it, or find some guidance at the fire.”
20:11. When he came to it, he was called, “O,
Moses (66)
.
20:12. “I am your Lord; remove your sandals. You are in the sacred valley, Tuwa.
20:13. “I have chosen you, so listen to what is being revealed.

20:14. “I am God; there is no other god beside Me. You shall worship Me alone, and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) to remember Me.

20:17. “What is this in your right hand, Moses (67)?”
20:18. He said, “This is my staff. I lean on it, herd my sheep with it, and I use it for other purposes.”
20:19. He said, “Throw it down, Moses (68).”
20:20. He threw it down, whereupon it turned into a moving serpent.
20:21. He said, “Pick it up; do not be afraid. We will return it to its original state.
20:22. “And hold your hand under your wing; it will come out white without a blemish; another proof.
20:23. “We thus show you some of our great portents.
20:24. “Go to Pharaoh, for he has transgressed.”
20:25. He said, “My Lord, cool my temper.
20:26. “And make this matter easy for me.
20:27. “And untie a knot from my tongue.
20:28. “So they can understand my speech.
20:29. “And appoint an assistant for me from my family.
20:30. “My brother Aaron.
20:31. “Strengthen me with him.
20:32. “Let him be my partner in this matter.
20:33. “That we may glorify You frequently.
20:34. “And commemorate You frequently.
20:35. “You are Seer of us.”
20:36. He said, “Your request is granted, O Moses (69).
20:37. “We have blessed you another time.
20:38. “When we revealed to your mother what we revealed.
20:39. “Saying: ‘Throw him into the box, then throw him into the river. The river will throw him onto the shore, to be picked up by an enemy of Mine and an enemy of his.’ I showered you with love from Me, and I had you made before My watchful eye.
20:40. “Your sister walked to them and said, ‘I can tell you about a nursing mother who can take good care of him.’ We thus returned you to your mother, that she may be happy and stop worrying. And when you killed a person, we saved you from the grievous consequences; indeed we tested you thoroughly. You stayed years with the people of Midyan, and now O
Moses (70) you have come back in accordance
with a precise plan.
20:41. “I have made you just for Me.

20:42. “Go with your brother, supported by My signs, and do not waver in remembering Me.
20:43. “Go to Pharaoh, for he has transgressed.
20:44. “Speak to him nicely; he may take heed, or become reverent.”
20:45. They said, “Our Lord, we fear lest he may attack us, or transgress.”
20:46. He said, “Do not be afraid, for I will be with you, listening and watching.
20:47. “Go to him and say, ‘We are two  messengers from your Lord. Let the Children of
Israel (28)
go. You must refrain from persecuting them. We bring a sign from your Lord, and peace is the lot of those who heed the guidance.
20:48. “ ‘We have been inspired that the retribution will inevitably afflict those who disbelieve and turn away.’”

20:49. He said, “Who is your Lord, O Moses (71).”
20:50. He said, “Our Lord is the One who granted everything its existence, and its guidance.”
20:51. He said, “What about the past generations?”
20:52. He said, “The knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a record. My Lord never errs, nor does He forget.”

20:53. He is the One who made the earth habitable for you, and paved in it roads for you. And He sends down from the sky water with which we produce many different kinds of plants.
20:54. Eat and raise your livestock. These are sufficient proofs for those who possess intelligence.

20:55. From it we created you, into it we return you, and from it we bring you out once more.
20:56. We showed him all our proofs, but he disbelieved and refused.
20:57. He said, “Did you come here to take us out of our land with your magic, O Moses (72)?
20:58. “We will surely show you similar magic. Therefore, set an appointment that neither we, nor you will violate; in a neutral place.”
20:59. He said, “Your appointed time shall be the day of festivities. Let us all meet in the forenoon.”

20:60. Pharaoh summoned his forces, then came.
20:61.
Moses (73)
said to them, “Woe to you. Do you fabricate lies to fight God and thus incur His retribution? Such fabricators will surely fail.”
20:62. They disputed among themselves, as they conferred privately.

20:63. They said, “These two are no more than magicians who wish to take you out of your land with their magic, and to destroy your ideal way of life.
20:64. “Let us agree upon one scheme and face them as a united front. The winner today will have the upper hand.”
20:65. They said, “O
Moses (74)
, either you throw, or we will be the first to throw.”
20:66. He said, “You throw.” Whereupon, their ropes and sticks appeared to him, because of their magic, as if they were moving.
20:67.
Moses (75)
harbored some fear.
20:68. We said, “Have no fear. You will prevail.
20:69. “Throw what you hold in your right hand, and it will swallow what they fabricated. What they fabricated is no more than the scheming of a magician. The magician's work will not succeed.”

The Experts Recognize The Truth
20:70. The magicians fell prostrate, saying, “We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses (76).”
20:71. He said, “Did you believe in him without my permission? He must be your chief; the one who taught you magic. I will surely sever your hands and feet on alternate sides. I will crucify you on the palm trunks. You will find out which of us can inflict the worst retribution, and who outlasts whom.”
20:72. They said, “We will not prefer you over the clear proofs that came to us, and over the One who created us. Therefore, issue whatever judgment you wish to issue. You can only rule in this lowly life.
20:73. “We have believed in our Lord, that He may forgive us our sins, and the magic that you forced us to perform. God is far better and Everlasting.”
20:74. Anyone who comes to his Lord guilty will incur Hell, wherein he never dies, nor stays alive.

20:75. As for those who come to Him as believers who had led a righteous life, they attain the high ranks.
20:76. The gardens of Eden, beneath which rivers flow, will be their abode forever. Such is the reward for those who purify themselves.

20:77. We inspired Moses (77): “Lead My servants out, and strike for them a dry road across the sea. You shall not fear that you may get caught, nor shall you worry.”
20:78. Pharaoh pursued them with his troops, but the sea overwhelmed them, as it was destined to overwhelm them.
20:79. Thus, Pharaoh misled his people; he did not guide them.

20:80. O Children of Israel (29), we delivered you from your enemy, summoned you to the right side of Mount Sinai, and we sent down to you manna and quails.
20:81. Eat from the good things we provided for you, and do not transgress, lest you incur My wrath. Whoever incurs My wrath has fallen.
20:82. I am surely Forgiving for those who repent, believe, lead a righteous life, and steadfastly remain guided.

The Children of Israel Rebel
20:83. “Why did you rush away from your people, O Moses (78)?”
20:84. He said, “They are close behind me. I have rushed to You my Lord, that You may be pleased.”
20:85. He said, “We have put your people to the test after you left, but the Samarian misled them.”

20:86. Moses (79) returned to his people, angry and disappointed, saying, “O my people, did your Lord not promise you a good promise? Could you not wait? Did you want to incur wrath from your Lord? Is this why you broke your agreement with me?”
20:87. They said, “We did not break our agreement with you on purpose. But we were loaded down with jewelry, and decided to throw our loads in. This is what the Samarian suggested.”
20:88. He produced for them a sculpted calf, complete with a calf's sound. They said, “This is your god, and the god of
Moses (80)
.” Thus, he forgot.
20:89. Could they not see that it neither responded to them, nor possessed any power to harm them, or benefit them?
20:90. And Aaron had told them, “O my people, this is a test for you. Your only Lord is the Most Gracious, so follow me, and obey my commands.”

20:91. They said, “We will continue to worship it, until Moses (81) comes back.”
20:92. (Moses) said, “O Aaron, what is it that prevented you, when you saw them go astray,
20:93. “from following my orders? Have you rebelled against me?”
20:94. He said, “O son of my mother; do not pull me by my beard and my head. I was afraid that you might say, ‘You have divided the Children of
Israel (30)
, and disobeyed my orders.’”

20:95. He said, “What is the matter with you, O Samarian?”
20:96. He said, “I saw what they could not see. I grabbed a fistful (of dust) from the place where the messenger stood, and used it (to mix into the golden calf). This is what my mind inspired me to do.”

Footnote 20:88 & 96. The Samarian went to the spot where God spoke to Moses, and grabbed a fistful of dust upon which God's voice had echoed. This dust, when mixed with the molten gold, caused the golden statue to acquire the sound of a calf.

20:97. He said, “Then go, and, throughout your life, do not even come close. You have an appointed time (for your final judgment) that you can never evade. Look at your god that you worshiped; we will burn it and throw it into the sea, to stay down there forever.”

You Have But One God
20:98. Your only god is God; the One beside whom there is no other god. His knowledge encompasses all things.
20:99. We thus narrate to you some news from the past generations. We have revealed to you a message from us.
20:100. Those who disregard it will bear a load (of sins) on the Day of Resurrection.
20:101. Eternally they abide therein; what a miserable load on the Day of Resurrection!
20:102. That is the day when the horn is blown, and we summon the guilty on that day blue.

Prophets Moses and Aaron
21:48. We gave Moses (82) and Aaron the Statute Book, a beacon, and a reminder for the righteous.
21:49. The ones who reverence their Lord, even when alone in their privacy, and they worry about the Hour.

21:50. This too is a blessed reminder that we sent down. Are you denying it?

Abraham
21:51. Before that, we granted Abraham his guidance and understanding, for we were fully aware of him.
21:52. He said to his father and his people, “What are these statues to which you are devoting yourselves?”
21:53. They said, “We found our parents worshipping them.”

21:54. He said, “Indeed, you and your parents have gone totally astray.”
21:55. They said, “Are you telling us the truth, or are you playing?”
21:56. He said, “Your only Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, who created them. This is the testimony to which I bear witness.
21:57. “I swear by God, I have a plan to deal with your statues, as soon as you leave.”
21:58. He broke them into pieces, except for a big one, that they may refer to it.

21:59. They said, “Whoever did this to our gods is really a transgressor.”
21:60. They said, “We heard a youth threaten them; he is called Abraham.”
21:61. They said, “Bring him before the eyes of all the people, that they may bear witness.”
21:62. They said, “Did you do this to our gods, O Abraham?”

Abraham Proves His Point
21:63. He said, “It is that big one who did it. Go ask them, if they can speak.”
21:64. They were taken aback, and said to themselves, “Indeed, you are the ones who have been transgressing.”
21:65. Yet, they reverted to their old ideas: “You know full well that these cannot speak.”

21:66. He said, “Do you then worship beside God what possesses no power to benefit you or harm you?
21:67. “You have incurred shame by worshipping idols beside God. Do you not understand?”

Profound Miracle
21:68. They said, “Burn him and support your gods, if this is what you decide to do.”
21:69. We said, “O fire, be cool and safe for Abraham.”
21:70. Thus, they schemed against him, but we made them the losers.
21:71. We saved him, and we saved Lot, to the land that we blessed for all the people.
21:72. And we granted him Isaac and Jacob as a gift, and we made them both righteous.

Abraham: Delivered All Religious Duties of Submission (Islam)
21:73. We made them imams who guided in accordance with our commandments, and we taught them how to work righteousness, and how to observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and the obligatory charity (Zakat). To us, they were devoted worshipers.

22:42. If they reject you, the people of Noah, `Ad, and Thamud have also disbelieved before them.
22:43. Also the people of Abraham, and the people of Lot.
22:44. And the dwellers of Midyan. Moses (83) was also rejected. I led all those disbelievers on, then I called them to account; how (devastating) was My requital!
22:45. Many a community we have annihilated because of their wickedness. They ended up in ruins, stilled wells, and great empty mansions.
22:46. Did they not roam the earth, then use their minds to understand, and use their ears to hear? Indeed, the real blindness is not the blindness of the eyes, but the blindness of the hearts inside the chests.

22:77. O you who believe, you shall bow, prostrate, worship your Lord, and work righteousness, that you may succeed.

Abraham: Original Messenger of Islam
22:78. You shall strive for the cause of God as you should strive for His cause. He has chosen you and has placed no hardship on you in practicing your religion, the religion of your father Abraham. He is the one who named you “Submitters” originally. Thus, the messenger shall serve as a witness among you, and you shall serve as witnesses among the people. Therefore, you shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and hold fast to God; He is your Lord, the best Lord and the best Supporter.

Moses and Aaron
23:45. Then we sent Moses (84) and his brother Aaron with our revelations and a profound proof.
23:46. To Pharaoh and his elders, but they turned arrogant. They were oppressive people.
23:47. They said, “Shall we believe for two men whose people are our slaves?”
23:48. They rejected the two, and consequently, they were annihilated.
23:49. We gave Moses (85) the scripture, that they may be guided.

25:35. We have given Moses (86) the scripture, and appointed his brother Aaron to be his assistant.
25:36. We said, “Go, both of you, to the people who rejected our revelations,” and subsequently, we utterly annihilated the rejecters.

Moses
26:10. Recall that your Lord called Moses (87): “Go to the transgressing people.
26:11. “Pharaoh's people; perhaps they reform.”
26:12. He said, “My Lord, I fear lest they disbelieve me.
26:13. “I may lose my temper. My tongue gets tied; send for my brother Aaron.
26:14. “Also, they consider me a fugitive; I fear lest they kill me.”
26:15. He said, “No, (they will not). Go with My proofs. We will be with you, listening.
26:16. Go to Pharaoh and say, “We are messengers from the Lord of the universe.
26:17. “Let the Children of Israel (31) go.”
26:18. He said, “Did we not raise you from infancy, and you spent many years with us?
26:19. “Then you committed the crime that you committed, and you were ungrateful.”
26:20. He said, “Indeed, I did it when I was astray.

26:21. “Then I fled, when I feared you, and my Lord endowed me with wisdom and made me one of the messengers.
26:22. “You are boasting that you did me a favor, while enslaving the Children of Israel (32)!”
26:23. Pharaoh said, “What is the Lord of the universe?”
26:24. He said, “The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them. You should be certain about this.”
26:25. He said to those around him, “Did you hear this?”
26:26. He said, “Your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors.”
26:27. He said, “Your messenger who is sent to you is crazy.”
26:28. He said, “The Lord of the east and the west, and everything between them, if you understand.”
26:29. He said, “If you accept any god, other than me, I will throw you in the prison.”
26:30. He said, “What if I show you something profound?”
26:31. He said, “Then produce it, if you are truthful.”
26:32. He then threw his staff, whereupon it became a profound snake.
26:33. And he took out his hand, and it was white to the beholders.
26:34. He said to the elders around him, “This is an experienced magician.
26:35. “He wants to take you out of your land with his magic. What do you suggest?”
26:36. They said, “Respite him and his brother and send summoners to every town.
26:37. “Let them summon every experienced magician.”
26:38. The magicians were gathered at the appointed time, on the appointed day.
26:39. The people were told: “Come one and all; let us gather together here.
26:40. “Maybe we will follow the magicians, if they are the winners.”

26:41. When the magicians came, they said to Pharaoh, “Do we get paid, if we are the winners?”
26:42. He said, “Yes indeed; you will even be close to me.”
26:43. Moses (88) said to them “Throw what you are going to throw.”
26:44. They threw their ropes and sticks, and said, “By Pharaoh's majesty, we will be the victors.”
26:45. Moses (89) threw his staff, whereupon it swallowed what they fabricated.

The Experts See the Truth
26:46. The magicians fell prostrate.
26:47. They said, “We believe in the Lord of the universe.
26:48. “The Lord of Moses (90) and Aaron.”
26:49. He said, “Did you believe with him before I give you permission? He must be your teacher, who taught you magic. You will surely find out. I will sever your hands and feet on alternate sides. I will crucify you all.”
26:50. They said, “This will not change our decision; to our Lord we will return.

26:51. “We hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins, especially that we are the first believers.”
26:52. We inspired Moses (91): “Travel with My servants; you will be pursued.”
26:53. Pharaoh sent to the cities callers.
26:54. (Proclaiming,) “This is a small gang.
26:55. “They are now opposing us.
26:56. “Let us all beware of them.”

The Inevitable Retribution
26:57. Consequently, we deprived them of gardens and springs.
26:58. And treasures and an honorable position.
26:59. Then we made it an inheritance for the Children of Israel (33).
26:60. They pursued them towards the east.
26:61. When both parties saw each other,
Moses' (92)
people said, “We will be caught.”
26:62. He said, “No way. My Lord is with me; He will guide me.”
26:63. We then inspired Moses (93): “Strike the sea with your staff,” whereupon it parted. Each part was like a great hill.
26:64. We then delivered them all.

26:65. We thus saved Moses (94) and all those who were with him.
26:66. And we drowned the others.
26:67. This should be a sufficient proof, but most people are not believers.
26:68. Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

The Quran
26:192. This is a revelation from the Lord of the universe.
26:193. The Honest Spirit (Gabriel) came down with it.
26:194. To reveal it into your heart, that you may be one of the warners.
26:195. In a perfect Arabic tongue.
26:196. It has been prophesied in the books of previous generations.
26:197. Is it not a sufficient sign for them that it was known to the scholars among the Children of Israel (34)?

Moses
27:7. Recall that Moses (95) said to his family, “I see a fire; let me bring you news there-from, or a torch to warm you.”
27:8. When he came to it, he was called: “Blessed is the One (who is speaking from) within the fire, and those around it.” Glory be to God, Lord of the universe.

27:9. “O Moses (96), this is Me, God, the Almighty, Most Wise.
27:10. “Throw down your staff.” When he saw it moving like a demon, he turned around and fled. “O Moses (97), do not be afraid. My messengers shall not fear.
27:11. “Except those who commit a transgression, then substitute righteousness after sinning; I am Forgiving, Most Merciful.
27:12. “Put your hand in your pocket; it will come out white, without a blemish. These are among nine miracles to Pharaoh and his people, for they are wicked people.”

27:13. When our miracles were presented to them, clear and profound, they said, “This is obviously magic.”
27:14. They rejected them and were utterly convinced of their wrong ways, due to their arrogance. Note the consequences for the evildoers.

27:76. This Quran settles many issues for the Children of Israel (35); issues that they are still disputing.


28:3. We recite to you herein some history of
Moses (98)
and Pharaoh, truthfully, for the benefit of people who believe.
28:4. Pharaoh turned into a tyrant on earth, and discriminated against some people. He persecuted a helpless group of them, slaughtering their sons, while sparing their daughters. He was indeed wicked.
28:5. We willed to compensate those who were oppressed on earth, and to turn them into leaders, and make them the inheritors.
28:6. And to establish them on earth, and to give Pharaoh, Hamaan, and their troops a taste of their own medicine.

Confidence in God
28:7. We inspired Moses' (99) mother: “Nurse him, and when you fear for his life, throw him into the river without fear or grief. We will return him to you, and will make him one of the messengers.”
28:8. Pharaoh's family picked him up, only to have him lead the opposition and to be a source of grief for them. That is because Pharaoh, Hamaan, and their troops were transgressors.
28:9. Pharaoh's wife said, “This can be a joyous find for me and you. Do not kill him, for he may be of some benefit for us, or we may adopt him to be our son.” They had no idea.
28:10. The mind of
Moses' (100)
mother was growing so anxious that she almost gave away his identity. But we strengthened her heart, to make her a believer.
28:11. She said to his sister, “Trace his path.” She watched him from afar, while they did not perceive.

The Infant Returned to His Mother
28:12. We forbade him from accepting all the nursing mothers. (His sister) then said, “I can show you a family that can raise him for you, and take good care of him.”
28:13. Thus, we restored him to his mother, in order to please her, remove her worries, and to let her know that God's promise is the truth. However, most of them do not know.
28:14. When he reached maturity and strength, we endowed him with wisdom and knowledge. We thus reward the righteous.

Moses Commits Manslaughter
28:15. Once he entered the city unexpectedly, without being recognized by the people. He found two men fighting; one was (a Hebrew) from his people, and the other was (an Egyptian) from his enemies. The one from his people called on him for help against his enemy. Moses (101) punched him, killing him. He said, “This is the work of the devil; he is a real enemy, and a profound misleader.”
28:16. He said, “My Lord, I have wronged my soul. Please forgive me.” And He forgave him. He is the Forgiver, Most Merciful.
28:17. He said, “My Lord, in return for Your blessings upon me, I will never be a supporter of the guilty ones.”

28:18. In the morning, he was in the city, afraid and watchful. The one who had sought his help yesterday, asked for his help again.
Moses (102) said to him, “You are really a trouble maker.”
28:19. Before he attempted to strike their common enemy, he said, “O
Moses (103), do you want to kill me, as you killed the other man yesterday? Obviously, you wish to be a tyrant on earth; you do not wish to be righteous.”
28:20. A man came running from the other side of the city, saying, “O
Moses (104)
, the people are plotting to kill you. You better leave immediately. I am giving you good advice.”
28:21. He fled the city, afraid and watchful. He said, “My Lord, save me from the oppressive people.”

In Midyan
28:22. As he traveled towards Midyan, he said, “May my Lord guide me in the right path.”
28:23. When he reached Midyan's water, he found a crowd of people watering, and noticed two women waiting on the side. He said, “What is it that you need?” They said, “We are not able to water, until the crowd disperses, and our father is an old man.”
28:24. He watered for them, then turned to the shade, saying, “My Lord, whatever provision you send to me, I am in dire need for it.”
28:25. Soon, one of the two women approached him, shyly, and said, “My father invites you to pay you for watering for us.” When he met him, and told him his story, he said, “Have no fear. You have been saved from the oppressive people.”

Moses Marries
28:26. One of the two women said, “O my father, hire him. He is the best one to hire, for he is strong and honest.”
28:27. He said, “I wish to offer one of my two daughters for you to marry, in return for working for me for eight pilgrimages; if you make them ten, it will be voluntary on your part. I do not wish to make this matter too difficult for you. You will find me, God willing, righteous.”
28:28. He said, “It is an agreement between me and you. Whichever period I fulfill, you will not be averse to either one. God is the guarantor of what we said.”

Back to Egypt
28:29. When Moses (105) had fulfilled his obligation, he traveled with his family (towards Egypt). He saw from the slope of Mount Sinai a fire. He said to his family, “Stay here. I have seen a fire. Maybe I can bring to you news, or a portion of the fire to warm you.”

Moses Appointed
28:30. When he reached it, he was called from the edge of the right side of the valley, in the blessed spot where the burning bush was located: “O Moses (106), this is Me, God; Lord of the universe.
28:31. “Throw down your staff.” When he saw it moving like a demon, he turned around and fled. “O
Moses (107)
, come back; do not be afraid. You are perfectly safe.
28:32. “Put your hand into your pocket; it will come out white without a blemish. Fold your wings and settle down from your fear. These are two proofs from your Lord, to be shown to Pharaoh and his elders; they have been wicked people.”
28:33. He said, “My Lord, I killed one of them, and I fear lest they kill me.

28:34. “Also, my brother Aaron is more eloquent than I. Send him with me as a helper to confirm and strengthen me. I fear lest they disbelieve me.”
28:35. He said, “We will strengthen you with your brother, and we will provide you both with manifest authority. Thus, they will not be able to touch either one of you. With our miracles, the two of you, together with those who follow you, will be the victors.”

Pharaoh's Arrogance
28:36. When Moses (108) went to them with our proofs, clear and profound, they said, “This is fabricated magic. We have never heard of this from our ancient ancestors.”
28:37. Moses (109) said, “My Lord knows best who brought the guidance from Him, and who will be the ultimate victors. Surely, the transgressors never succeed.”
28:38. Pharaoh said, “O you elders, I have not known of any god for you other than me. Therefore, fire the adobe, O Hamaan, in order to build a tower, that I may take a look at the god of Moses (110). I am sure that he is a liar.”
28:39. Thus, he and his troops continued to commit arrogance on earth, without any right, and thought that they would not be returned to us.
28:40. Consequently, we punished him and his troops, by throwing them into the sea. Note the consequences for the transgressors.

28:41. We made them leaders who led their people to Hell. Furthermore, on the Day of Resurrection, they will have no help.
28:42. They incurred in this life condemnation, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be despised.

The Book of Moses
28:43. We gave Moses (111) the scripture - after having annihilated the previous generations, and after setting the examples through them - to provide enlightenment for the people, and guidance, and mercy, that they may take heed.
28:44. You were not present on the slope of the western mount, when we issued the command to Moses (112); you were not a witness.
28:45. But we established many generations, and, because of the length of time (they deviated). Nor were you among the people of Midyan, reciting our revelations to them. But we did send messengers.
28:46. Nor were you on the slope of Mount Sinai when we called (Moses). But it is mercy from your Lord, (towards the people,) in order to warn people who received no Warner before you, that they may take heed.
28:47. Thus, they cannot say, when a disaster strikes them as a consequence of their own deeds, “Our Lord, had You sent a messenger to us, we would have followed Your revelations, and would have been believers.”

The Torah and The Quran
28:48. Now that the truth has come to them from us, they said, “If only we could be given what was given to Moses (113)!” Did they not disbelieve in what was given to Moses (114) in the past? They said, “Both (scriptures) are works of magic that copied one another.” They also said, “We are disbelievers in both of them.”
28:49. Say, “Then produce a scripture from God with better guidance than the two, so I can follow it, if you are truthful.”
28:50. If they fail to respond to you, then know that they follow only their own opinions. Who is farther astray than those who follow their own opinions, without guidance from God? God does not guide such wicked people.

All True Believers Accept the Quran
28:51. We have delivered the message to them, that they may take heed.
28:52. Those whom we blessed with the previous scriptures will believe in this.
28:53. When it is recited to them, they will say, “We believe in it. This is the truth from our Lord. Even before we heard of it, we were submitters.”
28:54. To these we grant twice the reward, because they steadfastly persevere. They counter evil works with good works, and from our provisions to them they give.
28:55. When they come across vain talk, they disregard it and say, “We are responsible for our deeds, and you are responsible for your deeds. Peace be upon you. We do not wish to behave like the ignorant ones.”

Qaroon, the slave driver
28:76. Qaroon was one of Moses' (115) people who betrayed them and oppressed them. We gave him so many treasures that the keys thereof were almost too heavy for the strongest hand. His people said to him, “Do not be so arrogant; God does not love those who are arrogant.
28:77. “Use the provisions bestowed upon you by God to seek the abode of the Hereafter, without neglecting your share in this world. Be charitable, as God has been charitable towards you. Do not keep on corrupting the earth. God does not love the corruptors.”

28:78. He said, “I attained all this because of my own cleverness.” Did he not realize that God had annihilated before him generations that were much stronger than he, and greater in number? The (annihilated) transgressors were not asked about their crimes.
28:79. One day, he came out to his people in full splendor. Those who preferred this worldly life said, “Oh, we wish that we possessed what Qaroon has attained. Indeed, he is very fortunate.”
28:80. As for those who were blessed with knowledge, they said, “Woe to you, God's recompense is far better for those who believe and lead a righteous life.” None attains this except the steadfast.

28:81. We then caused the earth to swallow him and his mansion. No army could have helped him against God; he was not destined to be a winner.
28:82. Those who were envious of him the day before said, “Now we realize that God is the One who provides for whomever He chooses from among His servants, and withholds. If it were not for God's grace towards us, He could have caused the earth to swallow us too. We now realize that the disbelievers never succeed.”

You never expected this Quran to come your way
28:85. Surely, the One who decreed the Quran for you will summon you to a predetermined appointment. Say, “My Lord is fully aware of those who uphold the guidance, and those who have gone astray.”
28:86. You never expected this scripture to come your way; but this is a mercy from your Lord. Therefore, you shall not side with the disbelievers.
28:87. Nor shall you be diverted from God's revelations, after they have come to you, and invite the others to your Lord. And do not ever fall into idol worship.
28:88. You shall not worship beside God any other god. There is no other god beside Him. Everything perishes except His presence. To Him belongs all sovereignty, and to Him you will be returned.

29:39. Also Qaroon, Pharaoh, and Hamaan; Moses (116) went to them with clear signs. But they continued to commit tyranny on earth. Consequently, they could not evade (the retribution).

One God/One Religion
29:46. Do not argue with the people of the scripture (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) except in the nicest possible manner - unless they transgress - and say, “We believe in what was revealed to us and in what was revealed to you, and our god and your god is One and the same; to Him we are submitters.”

29:47. We have revealed to you this scripture, and those whom we blessed with the previous scripture will believe in it. Also, some of your people will believe in it. Indeed, those who disregard our revelations are the real disbelievers.

Quran: Muhammad's Miracle
29:48. You did not read the previous scriptures, nor did you write them with your hand. In that case, the rejecters would have had reason to harbor doubts.
29:49. In fact, these revelations are clear in the chests of those who possess knowledge. Only the wicked will disregard our revelations.


32:23. We have given
Moses (117) the scripture - do not harbor any doubt about meeting Him - and we made it a guide for the Children of Israel (36)
.
32:24. We appointed from among them leaders who guided in accordance with our commandments, because they steadfastly persevered and attained certainty about our revelations.
32:25. Your Lord is the One who will judge them on the Day of Resurrection, regarding everything they disputed.
32:26. Does it ever occur to them how many generations we have annihilated before them? They now live and walk in their ancestors' homes. This should provide sufficient proofs. Do they not hear?
32:27. Do they not realize that we drive the water to barren lands, and produce with it crops to feed their livestock, as well as themselves? Do they not see?
32:28. They challenge: “Where is that victory, if you are truthful?”

32:29. Say, “The day such a victory comes, believing will not benefit those who did not believe before that, nor will they be given another chance.”
32:30. Therefore, disregard them and wait, they too are waiting.

33:7. Recall that we took from the prophets their covenant, including you (O Muhammad), Noah, Abraham, Moses (118), and Jesus the son of Mary. We took from them a solemn pledge.
33:8. Subsequently, He will surely question the truthful about their truthfulness, and has prepared for the disbelievers (in this Quranic fact) a painful retribution.

33:69. O you who believe, do not be like those who hurt Moses (119), then God absolved him of what they said. He was, in the sight of God, honorable.


Quran: The Consummation of All the Scriptures

35:31. What we revealed to you in this scripture is the truth, consummating all previous scriptures. God is fully Cognizant of His servants, Seer.
35:32. We passed the scripture from generation to generation, and we allowed whomever we chose from among our servants to receive it. Subsequently, some of them wronged their souls, others upheld it only part of the time, while others were eager to work righteousness in accordance with God's will; this is the greatest triumph.

The Believers
35:33. They will enter the gardens of Eden, where they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments in it will be made of silk.
35:34. They will say, "Praise God for removing all our worries. Our Lord is Forgiving, Appreciative.

35:35. “He has admitted us into the abode of eternal bliss, out of His grace. Never do we get bored herein, never do we get tired.”

Moses and Aaron
37:114. We also blessed Moses (120) and Aaron.
37:115. We delivered them and their people from the great disaster.
37:116. We supported them, until they became the winners.
37:117. We gave both of them the profound scripture.
37:118. We guided them in the right path.
37:119. We preserved their history for subsequent generations.
37:120. Peace be upon Moses (121) and Aaron.
37:121. We thus reward the righteous.
37:122. Both of them were among our righteous servants.

38:71. Your Lord said to the angels, “I am creating a human being from clay.
38:72. “Once I design him, and blow into him from My spirit, you shall fall prostrate before him.”
38:73. The angels fell prostrate, all of them,
38:74. except Satan; he refused, and was too arrogant, unappreciative.
38:75. He said, “O Satan, what prevented you from prostrating before what I created with My hands? Are you too arrogant? Have you rebelled?”
38:76. He said, I am better than he; You created me from fire, and created him from clay.”
38:77. He said, “Therefore, you must be exiled, you will be banished.
38:78. “You have incurred My condemnation until the Day of Judgment.”
38:79. He said, “My Lord, respite me till the Day of Resurrection.”
38:80. He said, “You are given respite.
38:81. “Until the appointed Day.”
38:82. He said, “I swear by Your majesty, that I will send them all astray.
38:83. “Except Your worshipers who are devoted absolutely to You alone.”
38:84. He said, “This is the truth, and the truth is all that I utter.
38:85. “I will fill Hell with you and all those who follow you.”

Moses
40:23. We sent Moses (122) with our signs and a profound authority.
40:24. To Pharaoh, Hamaan, and Qaroon. But they said, “A magician; a liar.”
40:25. And when he showed them the truth from us, they said, “Kill the sons of those who believed with him, and spare their daughters.” Thus, the scheming of the disbelievers is always wicked.

Moses Vs Pharaoh
40:26. Pharaoh said, “Let me kill Moses (123), and let him implore his Lord. I worry lest he corrupts your religion, or spreads evil throughout the land.”
40:27. Moses (124) said, “I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, from every arrogant one who does not believe in the Day of Reckoning.”

40:28. A believing man among Pharaoh's people, who was concealing his belief, said, “How can you kill a man just for saying, ‘My Lord is God,’ and he has shown you clear proofs from your Lord? If he is a liar, that is his problem, and if he is truthful, you benefit from his promises. Surely, God does not guide any transgressor, liar.
40:29. “O my people, today you have kingship and the upper-hand. But who will help us against God's judgment, should it come to us?” Pharaoh said, “You are to follow only what I see fit; I will guide you only in the right path.”

40:36. Pharaoh said, “O Hamaan, build for me a high tower, that I may reach out and discover.
40:37. “I want to reach the heaven, and take a look at the god of
Moses (125)
. I believe he is a liar.” The evil works of Pharaoh were adorned in his eyes, thus he was kept away from following (the right) path. Pharaoh's scheming was truly evil.

Learn From History
40:53. We have given Moses (126) the guidance, and made the Children of Israel (37) inherit the scripture.
40:54. (Their history) is a lesson and a reminder for those who possess intelligence.
40:55. Therefore, be patient, for God's promise is true, and ask forgiveness for your sin, and glorify and praise your Lord night and day.
40:56. Surely, those who argue against God's revelations without proof are exposing the arrogance that is hidden inside their chests, and they are not even aware of it. Therefore, seek refuge in God; He is the Hearer, the Seer.


Mathematical Miracle of the Quran

41:41. Those who have rejected the Quran's proof when it came to them, have also rejected an Honorable book.
41:42. No falsehood could enter it, in the past or in the future; a revelation from a Most Wise, Praiseworthy.
41:43. What is said to you is precisely what was said to the previous messengers. Your Lord possesses forgiveness, and He also possesses painful retribution.

Language is Irrelevant
41:44. If we made it a non-Arabic Quran they would have said, "Why did it come down in that language?" Whether it is Arabic or non-Arabic, say, "For those who believe, it is a guide and healing. As for those who disbelieve, they will be deaf and blind to it, as if they are being addressed from afar."

41:45. We have given Moses (127) the scripture and it was also disputed. If it were not for your Lord's predetermined decision, they would have been judged immediately. Indeed, they harbor too many doubts.

Only One Religion
42:13. He decreed for you the same religion decreed for Noah, and what we inspired to you, and what we decreed for Abraham,
Moses (128)
, and Jesus: "You shall uphold this one religion, and do not divide it." The idol worshipers will greatly resent what you invite them to do. God redeems to Himself whomever He wills; He guides to Himself only those who totally submit.

42:14. Ironically, they broke up into sects only after the knowledge had come to them, due to jealousy and resentment among themselves. If it were not for a predetermined decision from your Lord to respite them for a definite interim, they would have been judged immediately. Indeed, the later generations who inherited the scripture are full of doubts.

42:15.  This is what you shall preach, and steadfastly maintain what you are commanded to do, and do not follow their wishes. And proclaim: "I believe in all the scriptures sent down by God. I was commanded to judge among you equitably. God is our Lord and your Lord. We have our deeds and you have your deeds. There is no argument between us and you. God will gather us all together; to Him is the ultimate destiny."

 
43:45.  Check the messengers we sent before you: "Have we ever appointed any other gods - beside the Most Gracious - to be worshipped?"
43:46.  For example, we sent
Moses (129)
with our proofs to Pharaoh and his elders, proclaiming: "I am a messenger from the Lord of the universe."
43:47.  When he showed them our proofs, they laughed at them.
43:48.  Every sign we showed them was bigger than the one before it. We afflicted them with the plagues, perhaps they repent.
43:49.  They said, "O you magician, implore your Lord on our behalf (to relieve this plague), since you have an agreement with Him; we will then be guided."
43:50.  But as soon as we relieved their affliction, they reverted.
43:51.  Pharaoh announced to his people, "O my people, do I not possess the kingship over Egypt, and these flowing rivers belong to me? Do you not see?
43:52.  "Which one is better; me or that one who is lowly and can hardly speak?

43:53.  "How come he does not possess a treasure of gold; how come the angels do not accompany him?"
43:54.  He thus fooled his people, and they obeyed him; they were wicked people.
43:55.  When they persisted in opposing us, we punished them and drowned them all.
43:56.  We rendered them a precedent and an example for the others.

Jesus: Another Example
43:57.  When the son of Mary was cited as an example, your people disregarded it.
43:58.  They said, "Is it better to worship our gods, or to worship him?" They said this only to argue with you. Indeed, they are people who have joined the opposition.
43:59.  He was no more than a servant whom we blessed, and we sent him as an example for the Children of
Israel (38)
.

44:17.  We have tested before them the people of Pharaoh; an honorable messenger went to them.
44:18.  Proclaiming: "Listen to me, servants of God. I am an honest messenger to you."
44:19.  And, "Do not transgress against God. I bring to you powerful proofs.

44:20.  "I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, if you oppose me.
44:21.  "If you do not wish to believe, then simply leave me alone."
44:22.  Subsequently, he implored his Lord: "These are wicked people."
44:23.  (God said,) "Travel with My servants during the night; you will be pursued.
44:24.  "Cross the sea quickly; their troops will be drowned."
44:25.  Thus, they left behind many gardens and springs.
44:26.  Crops and a luxurious life.
44:27.  Blessings that they enjoyed.
44:28.  All these we caused to be inherited by other people.
44:29.  Neither the heaven nor the earth wept over them, and they were not given respite.

44:30.  Meanwhile, we saved the Children of Israel (39) from the humiliating persecution.
44:31.  From Pharaoh; he was a tyrant.
44:32.  We have chosen them from among all the people, knowingly.
44:33.  We showed them so many proofs, which constituted a great test.


45:16.  We have given the Children of
Israel (40)
the scripture, wisdom, and prophethood, and provided them with good provisions; we bestowed upon them more blessings than any other people.
45:17.  We have given them herein clear commandments. Ironically, they did not dispute this until the knowledge had come to them. This is due to jealousy on their part. Surely, your Lord will judge them on the Day of Resurrection regarding everything they have disputed.


 Rabbi Judah the Pious
46:10.  Say, "What if it is from God and you disbelieved in it? A witness from the Children of Israel (41) has borne witness to a similar phenomenon, and he has believed, while you have turned arrogant. Surely, God does not guide the wicked people."

Footnote 46:10. This witness is Rabbi Judah the Pious (11th Century A.D.), who discovered the same 19-based mathematical code in the intact fragments of the scripture.

46:11.  Those who disbelieved said about those who believed, "If it were anything good, they would not have accepted it before us." Because they were not guided to it, they said, "This is an old fabrication!"
46:12.  Before this, the book of
Moses (130)
provided guidance and mercy. This too is a scripture that confirms, in Arabic, to warn those who transgressed, and to give good news to the righteous.

46:29.  Recall that we directed a number of jinns to you, in order to let them hear the Quran. When they got there, they said, "Listen." As soon as it was over, they rushed to their people, warning.
46:30.  They said, "O our people, we have heard a book that was revealed after
Moses (131)
, and confirms the previous scriptures. It guides to the truth; to the right path.
46:31.  "O our people, respond to the call of God, and believe in Him. He will then forgive your sins, and spare you a painful retribution."

46:32.  Those who fail to respond to God's call cannot escape, and will have no Lord other than Him; they have gone far astray.


51:38.  In Moses (132) (there is a lesson). We sent him to Pharaoh with manifest proofs.
51:39.  But he turned away in arrogance and said, "Magician, or crazy."
51:40.  Consequently, we punished him and his troops. We threw them into the sea, and he is the one to blame.

 
53:33.  Have you noted the one who turned away?
53:34.  Rarely did he give to charity, and then very little.
53:35.  Did he possess knowledge of the future? Could he see it?
53:36.  Was he not informed of the teachings in the scripture of Moses (133)?


61:5.  Recall that Moses (134) said to his people, "O my people, why do you hurt me, even though you know that I am God's messenger to you?" When they deviated, God diverted their hearts. For God does not guide the wicked people.

Messenger After Jesus
61:6.  Recall that Jesus, son of Mary, said, "O Children of Israel (42)
, I am God's messenger to you, confirming the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be even more praised (Ahmad)." Then, when he showed them the clear proofs, they said, "This is profound magic."

61:7.  Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies about God, and he is being invited to Submission? God does not guide the evil people.
61:8.  They wish to put out God's light with their mouths. But God insists upon perfecting His light, in spite of the disbelievers.

The Great Prophecy
61:9.  He has sent His messenger with the guidance and the true religion, and will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.

The Best Deal
61:10.  O you who believe, let Me inform you of a trade that will save you from painful retribution.
61:11.  Believe in God and His messenger and strive in the cause of God with your money and your lives. This is the best deal for you, if you only knew.
61:12.  In return, He forgives your sins, and admits you into gardens with flowing streams, with beautiful mansions in the gardens of Eden. This is the greatest triumph.
61:13.  Additionally, you get something you truly love: support from God and guaranteed victory. Give good news to the believers.
61:14.  O you who believe, be God's supporters, like the disciples of Jesus, son of Mary. When he said to them, "Who are my supporters towards God," they said, "We are God's supporters." Thus, a group from the Children of
Israel (43)
believed, and another group disbelieved. We helped those who believed against their enemy, until they won.


79:15.  Have you known about the history of Moses (135)?
79:16.  His Lord called him at the holy valley of Tuwaa.
 
79:17.  "Go to Pharaoh; he has transgressed."
79:18.  Tell him, "Would you not reform?
79:19.  "Let me guide you to your Lord, that you may turn reverent."

79:20.  He then showed him the great miracle.
79:21.  But he disbelieved and rebelled.
79:22.  Then he turned away in a hurry.
79:23.  He summoned and proclaimed.
79:24.  He said, "I am your lord; most high."

79:25.  Consequently, God committed him to the retribution in the Hereafter, as well as in the first life.
79:26.  This is a lesson for the reverent.


87:14.  Successful indeed is the one who redeems his soul.
87:15.  By remembering the name of his Lord and observing the contact prayers (Salat).
 
87:16.  Indeed, you are preoccupied with this worldly life.
87:17.  Even though the Hereafter is far better and everlasting.

87:18.  This is recorded in the earlier teachings.
87:19.  The teachings of Abraham and Moses (136).




 

Why Moses is mentioned in the Quran 136 times?
 
Why Israel is mentioned in the Quran  43 times?

 
O Children of Israel this is a sign for you!

The Quran has 114 Suras (chapters) of which 29 are prefixed with the Quranic initials. Thus the number of the Suras without the initials is 85. The 8th un-initialed sura in the Quran is Sura 17, the title of which is “The Children of Israel.”

8 x 17 = 136
“Moses” is mentioned in the Quran 136 times.

817
= 19 x 43
“Israel” is mentioned in the Quran 43 times.

Number 19 is the Quran's common denominator.
 
1 and 9 signify “The First and the Last,” “The Alpha and Omega.”

In the Quran Moses (116) is mentioned (136) times and Israel (302) is mentioned (43) times.

116,136;302,43 = 19 x 611243697

Is there any one in the world who can show a similar phenomenon in any other book?

The Book is, without a doubt,
A revelation from the Lord of the universe!
Quran 32:2



O Children of Israel this is a sign for you.

Israel's unilateral disengagement plan (Hebrew: תוכנית ההתנתקות or תכנית ההתנתקות (officially: "Disengagement Plan Implementation Law") or תוכנית ההינתקות, also known as the "disengagement plan," "Gaza Pull-Out plan," and "Gaza Expulsion plan") was a proposal by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, adopted by the government and enacted in August 2005, to remove all permanent Israeli presence in the Gaza Strip and from four settlements in the Northern West Bank.

Glory is to GOD; He is doing everything. There is no such thing as coincidences. It was in accordance with God's plan that on August 17 the first forced evacuation of settlers, as part of the disengagement, started. About 14,000 Israeli soldiers and police prepared to forcibly evacuate settlers."

817 = 19 x 43
Could this be a coincidence?

From August 17th to the end of the year, there are 136 days (14+30+31+30+31).

136 = 8 x 17
Could this be a coincidence?

What is the probability that all these be just coincidences? It is a fact that the evacuation of the settlers in Gaza Strip started on August 17th. It is a fact that the number of days from August 17th to the end of the year is 136, or 8 x 17. Now, any sincere-hearted person, any one without prejudice, can see that the 8th un-initialed sura (chapter) in the Quran is Sura 17, the title of which is The Children of Israel.Furthermore, in the Quran Moses, the most prominent figure in Judaism, is mentioned 136 times and Israel is mentioned 43 times. Isn't this a sign for the Israelites to recognize the book that is prophesied in their own scripture (Isaiah 29:11)?

Glory is to GOD; it was His will that the occupation of Gaza Strip by the Israelis lasted 38 years.

38 = 19 x 2
There is no other god beside GOD!

The hard-core among the Jews believe that that piece of land in the Middle East is their God-given. Then why did they give up a chunk of it, or did they? Why 38? Could this be another sign for the Children of Israel? The only sura in the Quran that has 38 verses is Sura "Mohammad," and Mohammad is the Prophet prophesied in Deuteronomy 18:18-19.

I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like you (Moses), and I will put My words (the Quran) in his mouth (Mohammad); and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

And it shall come to pass that whosoever will not listen to My words that he shall speak in My name
(In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
, I will require it of him.

The title of Sura 17 in the Quran is “The Children of Israel.” In this Sura “The Children of Israel” is mentioned in verses 2, 4, 101, and 104. By adding the sura and the verse numbers we obtain a number that points at both the Quran and the Children of Israel.

17 + 2 + 4 + 101 + 104 = 228
114
x 2 or 19 x 12
This is another sign for the descendants of the 12 Children of Israel.
Would they believe?

In accordance with God's plan, the name Ya`a`qoob (Jacob) was changed to Israel. The gematrical value of Ya`a`qoob in Arabic, the language of the Quran, is 188, (10+70+100+6+2). The gematrical value of Israel is 302, (1+60+200+1+10+30). The difference between the two gematrical values is:

302 - 188 = 114
Glory is to GOD, 114 is number of Suras in the Quran.


Surely, those who believe,
Those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts;
Anyone
Who believes in GOD,
And believes in the Last Day,
And leads a righteous life,
Will receive their recompense from their Lord.
They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
Quran 2:62

O Children of Israel, remember My favor, which I bestowed upon you,
And fulfill your part of the covenant, that I fulfill My part of the covenant, and reverence Me.
You shall believe in what I have revealed herein, confirming what you have.
Do not be the first to reject it. Do not trade away My revelations for a cheap price, and observe Me.
Do not confound the truth with falsehood, nor shall you conceal the truth, knowingly.
Quran 2:
40-42

The Quran: God's Message to the Jews and Christians
Quran 5:15. O people of the scripture, our messenger has come to you to proclaim for you many things you have concealed in the scripture, and to pardon many other transgressions you have committed. A beacon has come to you from GOD, and a profound scripture.
 
5:16. With it GOD guides those who seek His approval. He guides them to the paths of peace, leads them out of darkness into the light by His leave, and guides them in a straight path.

Isaiah 42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
42:4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he has set judgment in the earth: and the isles (America) shall wait for his law.

42:5 Thus says God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that gives breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

42:6 "I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you, and give you for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
42:
9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

42:10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, you that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar does inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.
42:12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.

42:13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
42:14 I have long time Held my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.
42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed that they trusted in graven images, that said to the molten images, "You are our gods."
42:18 Hear, o you deaf; and look, o you blind, that you may see.

42:19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord's servant?

42:20 Seeing many things, but you observe them not; opening the ears, but he hears them not.

42:21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable.

42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore.

42:23 Who among you will give ear to this? Who will hearken and hear for the time to come?
42:24
Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.

__________________________________________________

Who was God's elect, the one that GOD put His spirit upon him, the one who was to bring forth judgment and light to the Gentiles (Isaiah 1, 6)? Obviously the Jewish rabies would very much love to claim "GOD's elect" as one of their own. But to their disappointment, GOD has placed a clue in 42:11 that identifies "GOD's elect" as a descendant of Ke`dar, the second son of Ishmael, the firstborn of Abraham. Undoubtedly those who received the honor of having "GOD's elect" as one of their own would lift up their voice and shout from the top of the mountains. And the people of Ke`dar did just that. They welcomed GOD's elect who delivered to them judgment and light from the Almighty.

[Genesis 25:13] And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Neba`joth and Ke`dar, and Ad`beel, and Mib`sam.

It is important to note that 25 + 13 is 38, and the only sura in the Quran that has 38 verses is Sura 47 the title of which is "Mohammad."

Whose mouth can be sweeter than the mouth of a person who speaks the word of GOD? Glory is to GOD; He is the One who put His words in the mouth of His elect!

[Song of Solomon 5:16] His mouth is most sweet: yes, he is altogether lovely (Mohammad). This is My beloved, and this is My friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

[Deuteronomy18:18] I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like you, and I will put My words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

______________________________________________
 

It is GOD's will that I proclaim that those who are  Jewish are not GOD's chosen people of our time. They were at one time, but they did forsake the truth, falsified the scripture (the Torah), innovated their own fabrications (Traditions of Talmud, the Mishnah and Gemara), and thus became rebellious in the sight of GOD.

Quran 62:5.  The example of those who were given the Torah, then failed to uphold it, is like the donkey carrying great works of literature. Miserable indeed is the example of people who rejected God's revelations. God does not guide the wicked people.

Glory is to GOD; He is the truth and the truth is all that He utters. The following is how GOD spoke of Israelites to Moses.

Deuteronomy 31:16. "And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, you shall sleep with your fathers; and this people will rise up, and go after the gods of the strangers of the land (Traditions of Talmud, the Mishnah and Gemara), whither they go to be among them, and will forsake Me (The Torah), and break My covenant which I have made with them.

31:17. Then My anger shall be kindled against them in that Day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that Day, are not these evils come upon us, because our GOD is not among us?

31:18. And I will surely hide My face in that Day for all the evils which they shall have done, in that they are turned unto other gods."

Moses, a Messenger-Prophet, the one that GOD spoke to directly, was in his death-bed when he made the following comments and Prophecy about his people .

Deuteronomy 31:27. "For I know your rebellion, and your stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, you have been rebellious against the Lord; and how much more after my death?

31:28. Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them.

31:29. For I know that after my death you will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.

Quran 7:167.  Additionally, your Lord has decreed that He will raise up against them people who will inflict severe persecution upon them, until the Day of Resurrection. Your Lord is most efficient in enforcing retribution, and He is certainly the Forgiver, Most Merciful.
7:168. We scattered them among many communities throughout the land. Some of them were righteous, and some were less than righteous. We tested them with prosperity and hardship, that they may return.

Quran 17:4. We addressed the Children of Israel in the scripture: “You will commit gross evil on earth, twice. You are destined to fall into great heights of arrogance.
17:5. “When the first time comes to pass, we will send against you servants of ours who possess great might, and they will invade your homes. This is a prophecy that must come to pass.
17:6. “Afterwards, we will give you a turn over them, and will supply you with a lot of wealth and children; we will give you the upper hand.

17:7. “If you work righteousness, you work righteousness for your own good, but if you commit evil you do so to your own detriment. Thus, when the second time comes to pass, they will defeat you and enter the mosque, just as they did the first time. They will wipe out all the gains you had accomplished.”

A short history of Judaism: Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brothers. This whole religion is named after Judas. Why? What happened to Joseph? Joseph was the one chosen by Almighty GOD!

Jacob whose name was later changed to Israel had twelve sons. The eleventh was Joseph who was favored by his father and GOD, the Almighty. Ten of the brothers were not happy with this, they were jealous, and Judas was one of them. They conspired together to get rid of Joseph. First they thought that they should kill him, but later they decided to just dump him at the bottom of a well and leave him for dead. They took his bloody shirt to their father and said, "Father we are truly sorry, while we were busy playing, Joseph was devoured by wolves." Ten brothers conspired together to commit a crime against one of their own. They executed their plan and were able to conceal their conspiracy for years.

Glory is to GOD; we know that Joseph was picked up by a caravan and was taken to Egypt. To make the long story short at this juncture, he became prominent in Egypt, one of the closest to the Pharaoh of his time. Later he forgave his brothers and invited his whole family to come and live in Egypt. The Children of Israel went to Egypt as celebrities, they were relatives of Joseph. They did not go to Egypt as slaves. Then how did the conversion from celebrities to slaves come about? What did the Children of Israel do to the Egyptians that the Egyptians were finally fed up, rose against them, and made them captives? It is true that the Israelites suffered a lot in the hands of the Egyptians. But shouldn't they be blamed at least partially for the pain and the sufferings that came upon them?

Glory is to GOD; He sent Moses to Egypt to free the Children of Israel from the bondage imposed upon them by Pharaoh and his elders. GOD showed them miracles, one after the other. Miracles are from GOD, and greater miracles bring about greater responsibilities. The Red Sea was split right before their eyes, a dry passage was provided for them that they passed through it. With their own eyes they saw Pharaoh's troops being drowned. How much more GOD, the Almighty, should have shown them to make them believe that He is the Only GOD? Yet, after all these, when Moses was summoned to Mount Sinai for forty nights, they worshiped the god of their own creation. They made a sculpture of a golden calf and worshiped it. They Could Not Even Wait For Forty Nights!

GOD commanded Moses to tell his people to enter through the gates of Jerusalem and be nice and amicable. God's promise was that they shall prosper therein and will be happy. They said, "No Moses, we are not going in. There are strong people in there, the Palestinians. You and GOD go fight first, we come later." Almighty GOD wanted them to go in with peace, they wanted to start a war instead. For their disobedience, they were punished. They became homeless, roaming earth aimlessly for forty years.

Moses said to his people, “GOD commands you to sacrifice a heifer.” They said, “Are you mocking us?” He said, “GOD forbid, that I should behave like the ignorant ones.” They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us which one.” He said, “He says that she is a heifer that is neither too old, nor too young; of an intermediate age. Now, carry out what you are commanded to do.” They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us her color.” He said, “He says that she is a yellow heifer, bright colored, pleases the beholders.” They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us which one. The heifers look alike to us and, GOD willing, we will be guided.” He said, “He says that she is a heifer that was never humiliated in plowing the land or watering the crops; free from any blemish.” They said, “Now you have brought the truth.” They finally sacrificed her, after this lengthy reluctance. This section is a direct quote from the Quran.

We gave Moses the scripture, and subsequent to him we sent other messengers, and we gave Jesus, son of Mary, profound miracles and supported him with the Holy Spirit. Is it not a fact that every time a messenger went to you with anything you disliked, your ego caused you to be arrogant? Some of them you rejected, and some of them you killed.
Some would say, “Our minds are made up!” Instead, it is a curse from GOD, as a consequence of their disbelief, that keeps them from believing, except for a few of them.
When this scripture (the Quran) came to them from GOD, and even though it agrees with, and confirms what they have, and even though they used to prophesy its advent when they talked with the disbelievers, when their own prophecy came to pass, they disbelieved therein. GOD's condemnation thus afflicts the disbelievers.
Miserable indeed is what they sold their souls for - rejecting these revelations of GOD out of sheer resentment that GOD should bestow His grace upon whomever He chooses from among His servants. Consequently, they incurred wrath upon wrath. The disbelievers have incurred a humiliating retribution.
When they are told, “You shall believe in these revelations of GOD,” they say, “We believe only in what was sent down to us.” Thus, they disbelieve in subsequent revelations, even if it is the truth from their Lord, and even though it confirms what they have! Say, “Why then did you kill GOD's prophets, if you were believers?”
This section is a direct quote from the Quran.


 

The only criterion by which people are distinguished before Almighty GOD is their righteousness.

Quran 49:13.  O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant.

 The above is what GOD says, and below is how Satan responded to GOD, (7:12).

Quran 7:11. We created you, then we shaped you, then we said to the angels, “Fall prostrate before Adam.” They fell prostrate, except Iblees (Satan); he was not with those who prostrated.

7:12. He said, “What prevented you from prostrating when I ordered you?”
 
He (Satan) said, “I am better than he; You created me from fire, and created him from mud.”

7:13. He said, “Therefore, you must go down, for you are not to be arrogant here. Get out; you are debased.”

7:14. He said, “Grant me a respite, until the Day of Resurrection.”
7:15. He said, “You are granted a respite.”
7:16. He said, “Since You have willed that I go astray, I will skulk for them on Your straight path.
7:17. “I will come to them from before them, and from behind them, and from their right, and from their left, and You will find that most of them are unappreciative.”


7:18. He said, “Get out there-from, despised and defeated. Those among them who follow you, I will fill Hell with you all.

The problem with the majority of those who call themselves "Jewish" is that they have a false sense of superiority. They do not talk about it openly, but they really think that they are better than other people. They think that they are chosen by GOD as His favorites forever and wish to be distinguished as such. This subtle self-glorification normally leads to major problems when Jewish people live among other communities.

It is GOD's will that I advise those who call themselves "Jewish" to repent to the Almighty and mend their ways. It is GOD's will that I advise those who call themselves "Jewish" to come off the pedestal of arrogance. They should know that they are NOT the chosen people of our time. They were at one time, but they failed miserably to appreciate GOD's blessings, time and time again.

O Children of Israel, remember My favor, which I bestowed upon you,
And fulfill your part of the covenant, that I fulfill My part of the covenant, and reverence Me.
You shall believe in what I have revealed herein, confirming what you have;
Do not be the first to reject it. Do not trade away My revelations for a cheap price, and observe Me.
Do not confound the truth with falsehood, nor shall you conceal the truth, knowingly.
Quran 2:
40
-42

Surely, those who believe,
Those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts;
Anyone
Who believes in GOD,
And believes in the Last Day,
And leads a righteous life,
Will receive their recompense from their Lord.
They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
Quran 2:62



ISRAEL

GOD will surely hide His face from you for all the evils that you are committing.
Much evil will befall you in latter days; because you are doing evil in the sight of the Lord,
To provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.

Deuteronomy 31:16. "And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, you shall sleep with your fathers; and this people will rise up and go after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake Me, and break My covenant which I have made with them.

31:17. Then My anger shall be kindled against them in that Day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that Day, are not these evils come upon us, because our GOD is not among us?

31:18. And I will surely hide My face in that Day for all the evils which they shall have done, in that they are turned unto other gods."

Moses was hundred and twenty years old when he made this prophecy before his death:

Deuteronomy 31:27. "For I know your rebellion, and your stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, you have been rebellious against the Lord; and how much more after my death?

31:28. Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them.

31:29. For I know that after my death you will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.

Quran 7:167.  Additionally, your Lord has decreed that He will raise up against them people who will inflict severe persecution upon them, until the Day of Resurrection. Your Lord is most efficient in enforcing retribution, and He is certainly the Forgiver, Most Merciful.
7:168. We scattered them among many communities throughout the land. Some of them were righteous, and some were less than righteous. We tested them with prosperity and hardship, that they may return.

Quran 17:4. We addressed the Children of Israel in the scripture: “You will commit gross evil on earth, twice. You are destined to fall into great heights of arrogance.
17:5. “When the first time comes to pass, we will send against you servants of ours who possess great might, and they will invade your homes. This is a prophecy that must come to pass.
17:6. “Afterwards, we will give you a turn over them, and will supply you with a lot of wealth and children; we will give you the upper hand.

17:7. “If you work righteousness, you work righteousness for your own good, but if you commit evil you do so to your own detriment. Thus, when the second time comes to pass, they (who) will defeat you and enter the mosque, just as they did the first time. They will wipe out all the gains you had accomplished.”

Glory is to GOD, this will be the greatest surprise in modern history.

GOD will surely hide His face from you for all the evils that you are committing.
Much evil will befall you in latter days; because you are doing evil in the sight of the Lord,
To provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.

People, please take a little time to find out the truth; so many lives depend on it. I am an American, non-Arab, who believes in the GOD of Abraham, and Abraham was the father of the Jews, the Christians, and the Muslims. I give my life to save a life of a child, may it be from Israel or Palestine.

I can no longer sit back with good conscience and do nothing while my government is supporting the types of terrorist actions that we have condemned Muslim Extremists for. Please, I beg you, call your Congressman and Senator, send an email to the White House and demand that our government negotiates FAIRLY with both sides to bring a fair and just solution to Palestine and Israel.

A Palestinian child, just home from school, learns that his family house has been demolished by the municipality in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina, Feb. 5. The municipality said the building was constructed without proper permits and was not sound. The 33-member family said it was waiting to receive permits. Posted on: February 8, 2013

The strategy of Israel, the so-called Jewish State, is to make life so difficult for the Palestinians that they finally give up their lands and settle somewhere else. Under the guise of defending themselves, the "Israeli Defense Force" and their other elements, commit unspeakable crimes against humanity. They destroy lives and livelihoods. They harass, intimidate, terrorize, and kill. They destroy homes, crops, plantations, and businesses over and over again. In the history of modern warfare, no army has ever used bulldozers nearly as much as the "Israeli Defense Force."

Isn't it ironic that the grandchildren of the Holocaust survivors do to the Palestinians exactly what was done to their people by the Nazis? It is an old saying that a picture is better than a thousand words. Please take a look at the pictures on the link below and draw your own conclusion. The photos on the left are from the Nazi regime and the photos on the right are from the Israeli regime in Palestine. The pictures on the left are picked from among the pictures that the Israeli sympathizers show every year to stir up sympathy for their cause.

Say, “He is certainly able to pour upon you retribution from above you, or from beneath your feet.
Or He can divide you into factions and have you taste each others' tyranny.
Note how we explain the revelations, that they may understand.”

Quran 6:65.

A Question to the Muslim World: Why Are You Divided?

Religious Sects Condemned: Those Muslims (Submitters) who call themselves anything beside being just Muslims are plagued with hypocrisy. They are not Muslims, they are not Submitters! Those who submit to GOD, do not disobey GOD. The true Muslims (Submitters) when they hear GOD's commands, they say "We hear and we obey." It is GOD's command that we must not break our religion into sects.

Quran 3:104. Let there be a community of you who invite to what is good, advocate righteousness, and forbid evil. These are the winners.
3:105. 
Do not be like those who became divided and disputed, despite the clear proofs that were given to them. For these have incurred a terrible retribution."

Quran 6:159. "Those who divide themselves into sects do not belong with you. Their judgment rests with GOD, then He will inform them of everything they had done."

Quran 21:92. "Your congregation is but one congregation, and I alone am your Lord; you shall worship Me alone.
21:93. However, they divided  themselves into disputing religions. All of them will come back to us (for judgment).

Quran 23:51. "Such is your congregation - one congregation - and I am your Lord; you shall reverence Me.
23:52. But they tore themselves into disputing factions; each party happy with what they have."

Quran 30:30. "Therefore, you shall devote yourselves to the religion of strict monotheism. Such is the natural instinct placed into the people by GOD. Such creation of GOD will never change. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.
30:31. You shall submit to Him, reverence Him, observe the Contact Prayers, and - whatever you do - do not ever fall into idol worship.
30:32. (Do not fall into idol worship,) like those who divided their religion into sects; each party rejoicing with what they have."

A Question to the Muslim World:
Why Don't You Follow GOD's Commands in the Quran?
