considers it as good (equal to one who is rightly guided)? Verily, Allah
sends astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. So destroy not

the righteous deeds exalt it (the goodly words i.e. the goodly words are
not accepted by Allah unless and until they are followed by good
deeds), but those who plot evils, theirs will be severe torment. And the
plotting of such will perish.
Allah did create you (Adam) from dust, then from Nutfah (male and
female discharge semen drops i.e. Adams offspring), then He made you
pairs (male and female). And no female conceives or gives birth, but

part cut off from his life (or another mans life), but is in a Book

even a Qitmeer (the thin membrane over the datestone).

And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them.

no bearer of burdens shall bear anothers burden, and if one heavily
laden calls another to (bear) his load, nothing of it will be lifted
even though he be near of kin. You (O Muhammad SAW) can warn only those

We chose (the followers of Muhammad SAW). Then of them are some who
wrong their ownselves, and of them are some who follow a middle course,

those who disbelieve, (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism)
for them will be the Fire of Hell. Neither it will have a complete

they will cry: "Our Lord! Bring us out, we shall do righteous good
deeds, not (the evil deeds) that we used to do." (Allah will reply):
"Did We not give you lives long enough, so that whosoever would receive
admonition, - could receive it? And the warner came to you. So taste you

etc.) there is no helper."

nothing but loss.

what they have created of the earth? Or have they any share in the
heavens? Or have We given them a Book, so that they act on clear proof

Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their
places, and if they were to move away from their places, there is not
one that could grasp them after Him. Truly, He is Ever Most Forbearing,
