And give good news to those who believe and do righteous deeds; that they will have gardens beneath which rivers flow. Whenever they are provided with fruit therefrom as sustenance, they will say, "This is what we were provided with before," and they will be given the like of it. And they will have pure spouses therein, and they will abide therein forever. 002025 ‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‌‌ ‌ ‍‍‌‌ ۖ ‌‍ ‍‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‌‌ ‍ ۙ ‌‌ ‌‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‌‍‍ۖ ‌‌ ۖ ‌ ‍ ‌‌‍‍‌‍‍‍‍ ۖ ‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‌‍

God does not shy away from making an example of a gnat, or something above it. As for those who believe, they know that it is the Truth from their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, they say, "What did God intend by this example?" He leads astray many thereby, and He guides many thereby; but He misleads thereby only the evildoers. 002026 ‍ ‌ ‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍ ‍ ‌ ‍‌ ۚ ‍‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‍ ‍‌ ۖ ‌‌‍‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍ ‌‌ ۘ‍‍‍ ‍ ‌ ‍ ۚ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍

Those who violate God's covenant after its confirmation, and sever what God has commanded to be joined, and commit evil on earth. These are the losers. 002027 ‍‍‍‍ ‍‌‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍ ‍‌‌ ‌ ‍ ‌‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‌‍ ‌‍‍‌ ۚ‍‍‌‍ ‍‍‍‍‍‌‍
Kayfa Takfurūna Billāhi Wa Kuntum 'Amwātāan Fa'aĥyākum ۖ Thumma Yumītukum Thumma Yuĥyīkum Thumma 'Ilayhi Turja`ūna (Al-Baqarah: 28). How can you deny God, when you were dead and He gave you life, then He will put you to death, then He will bring you to life, then to Him you will be returned? 002028 ‍‍‍‍‌‍‍‍ ‌‍‌‍‍‍ ‌‌ ۖ‌ ‍‌ ‍‌ ‌‍‍‍‍ ‍‍‍

And He taught Adam the names, all of them; then he presented them to the angels, and said, "Tell Me the names of these, if you are sincere." 002031 ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‍‌ ‍‍ ‌ ‍‍ ‌‌‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‌‌ ‍‌‌ ‌‌ ‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍

He said, "O Adam, tell them their names." And when he told them their names, He said, "Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of the heavens and the earth, and that I know what you reveal and what you conceal?" 002033 ‌ ‌‌‍ ‍ ۖ‍‍‍ ‍ ‌ ‌‍ ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ‌‌ ‍‌‍‍‍ ‍‍‍

But Satan caused them to slip from it, and caused them to depart the state they were in. We said, "Go down, some of you enemies of one another. And you will have residence on earth, and enjoyment for a while." 002036 ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‍‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍ۖ‍‌ ‍‍‍‍‍ ‍ ۖ‍‍ ‌‍ ‌‌ ‍‍‍

But the wrongdoers among them substituted words other than those given to them, so We sent down on the wrongdoers a plague from heaven, because of their wicked behavior. 002059 ‍‍‍ ‍‌ ‍‍ ‍‍‍ ‌‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍ ‍‌ ‍‍‌‌ ‌ ‍‍

And recall when Moses prayed for water for his people. We said, "Strike the rock with your staff." Thereupon twelve springs gushed out from it, and each tribe recognized its drinking-place. "Eat and drink from God's provision, and do not corrupt the earth with disobedience." 002060 ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍ ۖ‍‍ ‍‌‍‍‌ ‍ ۖ ‌ ‌‍ ۖ ‍‌ ‍‍‍ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‍‍

And recall when you said, "O Moses, we cannot endure one kind of food, so call to your Lord to produce for us of what the earth grows: of its herbs, and its cucumbers, and its garlic, and its lentils, and its onions." He said, "Would you substitute worse for better? Go down to Egypt, where you will have what you asked for." They were struck with humiliation and poverty, and incurred wrath from God. That was because they rejected God's revelations and wrongfully killed the prophets. That was because they disobeyed and transgressed. 002061 ‌‌‌ ‍ ‌ ‌ ‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‍‌‍‍ ‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‌ ۖ ‌‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍ ‍‍ ۚ ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‌ ۗ ‌‍ ‍ ‌ ‌‍‍‍‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍ ۗ ‍‍‌ ‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍ ۗ ‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‍‌‍

So they slew her; though they almost did not. 002071 ‍ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‌ ‍‍‍ ‌ ‌ ۚ ۚ ‌ ‌‌‍‍

So woe to those who write the Scripture with their own hands, and then say, "This is from God," that they may exchange it for a little price. Woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they earn. 002079 ‍‍‍‍ ‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‌ ‍‌‌ ‍‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‍ ‌ ۖ ‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‍

And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, although it was forbidden to you. Is it that you believe in part of the Scripture, and disbelieve in part? What is the reward for those among you who do that but humiliation in this life? And on the Day of Resurrection, they will be assigned to the most severe torment.

We gave Moses the Scripture, and sent a succession of messengers after him. And We gave Jesus son of Mary the clear proofs, and We supported him with the Holy Spirit. Is it that whenever a messenger comes to you with anything your souls do not desire, you grew arrogant, calling some impostors, and killing others? 002087 ‌ ‌ ‍‌ ‍‌‌ ‍ۖ ‌‌‌ ‌ ‌‌‍ ‍‍‌ ‍‍ۗ ‌‌ ‍‍‍ ‌ ‌ ‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

And when a scripture came to them from God, confirming what they have"although previously they were seeking victory against those who disbelieved"but when there came to them what they recognized, they disbelieved in it. So God's curse is upon the disbelievers. 002089 ‍‍‍‌ ‍‌ ‍ ‍‌‌ ‍‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‌ ‍‌‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‌ ‌ ‍ ۚ ‍ ‌ ‍‍

Thus they incurred wrath upon wrath. And there is a demeaning punishment for the disbelievers. 002090 ‌‌‌ ‌‌‍ ‌‌‌ ‌‍ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‍ ‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‌‌ ‍‌‌ ۖ ‍‌‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍ۚ‍‍ ‌‍‍‍‍‍‍‌‍‍

And when it is said to them, "Believe in what God has revealed," they say, "We believe in what was revealed to us," and they reject anything beyond that, although it is the truth which confirms what they have.

And We made a covenant with you, and raised the Mount above you: "Take what We have given you firmly, and listen." They said, "We hear and disobey." And their hearts became filled with the love of the calf because of their disbelief.

And they followed what the devils taught during the reign of Salomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but it was the devils who disbelieved. They taught the people witchcraft and what was revealed in Babylon to the two angels Harut and Marut. They did not teach anybody until they had said, "We are a test, so do not lose faith." But they learned from them the means to cause separation between man and his wife. But they cannot harm anyone except with God's permission. And they learned what would harm them and not benefit them. Yet they knew that whoever deals in it will have no share in the Hereafter. Miserable is what they sold their souls for, if they only knew. 002102 ‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍ ۖ ‌‌ ‍‌ ‍ ‌‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‍ ‍‍ ‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‌ ‌‌‍‍‌ ۚ ‌‌ ‍ ‍‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‌ ۖ‍‍ ‍‌‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ‌‌ ۚ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‍‍ۚ ‌‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‌ ‍‌‍‍ۚ ‌‍‍‍ ‍‌‍‍ ‍‌‌ ۚ ‌ ‌ ‍‌‌‌ ‌‌ۚ‍‍

It is never the wish of the disbelievers from among the People of the Book, nor of the polytheists, that any good should be sent down to you from your Lord. But God chooses for His mercy whomever He wills. God is Possessor of Sublime Grace. 002105 ‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‌‌ ‍‍ ‍‌ ۗ‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‌‌ ‍‌‌ ۚ‍‍‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍

Many of the People of the Book wish to turn you back into unbelievers after you have believed, out of envy on their part, after the Truth has become clear to them.

The Jews say, "The Christians are not based on anything;" and the Christians say, "The Jews are not based on anything." Yet they both read the Scripture. Similarly, the ignorant said the same thing.

Who is more unjust than him who forbids the remembrance of God's name in places of worship, and contributes to their ruin? These ought not to enter them except in fear. For them is disgrace in this world, and for them is a terrible punishment in the Hereafter. 002114 ‍‌ ‌‍‍ ‍‍‍‍‌‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‌ ‌ ‌‌ ‌‍ۚ‍‍‌‍ ‌ ‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ۚ ‍‌‍‌ ‍‍ ‍‍‌‍‍‍‍

Should you follow their desires, after the knowledge that has come to you, you will have in God neither guardian nor helper. 002120 ‍‌‌ ‍‍‌ ‍‌‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‌‍‌‌ ‌ ۗ ‍ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ۗ‍‌ ۙ‍ ‍‌‌ ‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‌

And We made the House a focal point for the people, and a sanctuary. Use the shrine of Abraham as a place of prayer. And We commissioned Abraham and Ishmael, "Sanctify My House for those who circle around it, and those who seclude themselves in it, and those who kneel and prostrate." 002125 ‌‌‌ ‌ ‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍ ‌‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍‍ ۖ ‌‍ ‌‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‌‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‌‍‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‍‌‍

Divorce is allowed twice. Then, either honorable retention, or setting free kindly. It is not lawful for you to take back anything you have given them, unless they fear that they cannot maintain God's limits. If you fear that they cannot maintain God's limits, then there is no blame on them if she sacrifices something for her release. These are God's limits, so do not transgress them. Those who transgress God's limits are the unjust. 002229 ‍‍ ۖ ‍‍‌ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ۗ ‌‌ ‌‌‍‌‍‍‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‌ۖ‍ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‌‍ ‌ ‍ ‌ ‌ ۗ ‍‍‌‌‌ ‍ ‌ ‌‌ ۚ ‌‍‌‌ ‌ ‍‍‌‍‍‌‍ ‍‍‍‍‍‍

If he divorces her, she shall not be lawful for him again until she has married another husband. If the latter divorces her, then there is no blame on them for reuniting, provided they think they can maintain God's limits. These are God's limits; He makes them clear to people who know. 002230 ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‌‌ ‌ ‌ ‍‌‍‍‍ ‌‌‌ ‍‍ ۗ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‌ ‍‌‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‍‍‌ۗ‍‍‌‌‌ ‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍

When you divorce women, and they have reached their term, either retain them amicably, or release them amicably. But do not retain them to hurt them and commit aggression. Whoever does that has wronged himself. And do not take God's revelations for a joke. And remember God's favor to you, and that He revealed to you the Scripture and Wisdom to teach you. And fear God, and know that God is aware of everything. 002231 ‌‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‌ ‍‍‍‌ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‌ ۚ ‌‌ ‍‌‌‌ ۚ ‌‍‌‌ ‌ ‍‍‍ۚ ‌‌ ‍‍‍ ‌‍ ‍‍‍‍‌ ۚ‌‌ ‍ ‌‍‍‍ۚ‍‍ ‍ ‌‍ ‍‌ ‍‍‍

When you divorce women, and they have reached their term, do not prevent them from marrying their husbands, provided they agree on fair terms. Thereby is advised whoever among you believes in God and the Last Day. That is better and more decent for you. God knows, and you do not know. 002232 ‌‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‌ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ‌‌‌ ‍‌‍‍‍ ‌‌‌‌‍‌ ‌‌‌‌ ‍‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‌ ۗ ‌ ‍ ‍‌‌ ‍ ‍‌‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‌ ۗ ‌ ‌‌‌ ‌‌‍‍‍‌ ۗ‍‍‍ ‌‌‌‍ ‌ ‍‍‍

Mothers may nurse their infants for two whole years, for those who desire to complete the nursing-period. It is the duty of the father to provide for them and clothe them in a proper manner. No soul shall be burdened beyond its capacity. No mother shall be harmed on account of her child, and no father shall be harmed on account of his child. The same duty rests upon the heir. If the couple desire weaning, by mutual consent and consultation, they commit no error by doing so. You commit no error by hiring nursing-mothers, as long as you pay them fairly. And be wary of God, and know that God is Seeing of what you do. If the couple desire weaning, by mutual consent and consultation, they commit no error by doing so.

As for those among you who die and leave widows behind, their widows shall wait by themselves for four months and ten days. When they have reached their term, there is no blame on you regarding what they might honorably do with themselves. God is fully acquainted with what you do. 002234 ‍‍‍‍ ‍ ‍‌‍‍‍ ‌‌‍‍‌ ‌‌‌‌‍‍‍ ‌‍‍‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‌‌ ۖ ‌‌‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‌‍‌ ‌ ‍ ‌ ‍ ‌‌‍‍‌ ‍‍‍‌ ۗ‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍ ‍‍‍‍

You commit no error by announcing your engagement to women, or by keeping it to yourselves. God knows that you will be thinking about them. But do not meet them secretly, unless you have something proper to say. And do not confirm the marriage tie until the writing is fulfilled. And know that God knows what is in your souls, so beware of Him. And know that God is Forgiving and Forbearing. 002235 ‌ ‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍ ‍‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‍‌‍‍‍ ‍ ‌‌ۚ ‍ ‌‍ ‌‍‌ ‌‍‌‌ ‌ ‌‌‍‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‌ ‌ ‌‌ ‍‍‍ ۚ ‌‌ ‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‌ ‍‍‍‍‍ ۚ&zw
