And if we We had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come into effect [that] "I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together.

They say, " Allah "Allah has taken a son." Exalted is He! Rather, to Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are devoutly obedient to Him,
Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said,"When said, "When is the help of Allah?" Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.
But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, "Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah?" The disciples said," We said, "We are supporters for Allah. We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].
Say, " Allah "Allah has told the truth. So follow the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth; and he was not of the polytheists."
And indeed, there is among you he who lingers behind; and if disaster strikes you, he says, " Allah "Allah has favored me in that I was not present with them."
And they request from you, [O Muhammad], a [legal] ruling concerning women. Say, " Allah "Allah gives you a ruling about them and [about] what has been recited to you in the Book concerning the orphan girls to whom you do not give what is decreed for them - and [yet] you desire to marry them - and concerning the oppressed among children and that you maintain for orphans [their rights] in justice." And whatever you do of good - indeed, Allah is ever Knowing of it.
They request from you a [legal] ruling. Say, " Allah "Allah gives you a ruling concerning one having neither descendants nor ascendants [as heirs]." If a man dies, leaving no child but [only] a sister, she will have half of what he left. And he inherits from her if she [dies and] has no child. But if there are two sisters [or more], they will have two-thirds of what he left. If there are both brothers and sisters, the male will have the share of two females. Allah makes clear to you [His law], lest you go astray. And Allah is Knowing of all things.
They have certainly disbelieved who say, " Allah "Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary" while the Messiah has said, "O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Indeed, he who associates others with Allah - Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.
They have certainly disbelieved who say, " Allah "Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.
Say, "What thing is greatest in testimony?" Say, " Allah "Allah is witness between me and you. And this Qur'an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches. Do you [truly] testify that with Allah there are other deities?" Say, "I will not testify [with you]." Say, "Indeed, He is but one God, and indeed, I am free of what you associate [with Him]."
And they did not appraise Allah with true appraisal when they said, " Allah "Allah did not reveal to a human being anything." Say, "Who revealed the Scripture that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and concealing much. And you were taught that which you knew not - neither you nor your fathers." Say, " Allah "Allah [revealed it]." Then leave them in their [empty] discourse, amusing themselves.
And the polytheists assign to Allah from that which He created of crops and livestock a share and say, "This is for Allah," by their claim, " and "and this is for our partners [associated with Him]." But what is for their "partners" does not reach Allah, while what is for Allah - this reaches their "partners." Evil is that which they rule.
Those who remained behind rejoiced in their staying [at home] after [the departure of] the Messenger of Allah and disliked to strive with their wealth and their lives in the cause of Allah and said, 'Do "Do not go forth in the heat." Say, "The fire of Hell is more intensive in heat" - if they would but understand.
And when We give the people a taste of mercy after adversity has touched them, at once they conspire against Our verses. Say, " Allah "Allah is swifter in strategy." Indeed, Our messengers record that which you conspire
Say, "Who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Or who controls hearing and sight and who brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living and who arranges [every] matter?" They will say, " Allah," "Allah," so say, "Then will you not fear Him?"
Say, "Are there of your 'partners' any who begins creation and then repeats it?" Say, " Allah "Allah begins creation and then repeats it, so how are you deluded?"
Say, "Are there of your 'partners' any who guides to the truth?" Say, " Allah "Allah guides to the truth. So is He who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed or he who guides not unless he is guided? Then what is [wrong] with you - how do you judge?"
They have said, " Allah "Allah has taken a son." Exalted is He; He is the [one] Free of need. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. You have no authority for this [claim]. Do you say about Allah that which you do not know?
And We had certainly sent Noah to his people, [saying], " Indeed, "Indeed, I am to you a clear warner
So the eminent among those who disbelieved from his people said, " We "We do not see you but as a man like ourselves, and we do not see you followed except by those who are the lowest of us [and] at first suggestion. And we do not see in you over us any merit; rather, we think you are liars."
He said, " Allah "Allah will only bring it to you if He wills, and you will not cause [Him] failure.
They said, " If "If a wolf should eat him while we are a [strong] clan, indeed, we would then be losers."
[Jacob] said, "Never will I send him with you until you give me a promise by Allah that you will bring him [back] to me, unless you should be surrounded by enemies." And when they had given their promise, he said, " Allah, "Allah, over what we say, is Witness."
Say, "Who is Lord of the heavens and earth?" Say, " Allah." "Allah." Say, "Have you then taken besides Him allies not possessing [even] for themselves any benefit or any harm?" Say, "Is the blind equivalent to the seeing? Or is darkness equivalent to light? Or have they attributed to Allah partners who created like His creation so that the creation [of each] seemed similar to them?" Say, " Allah "Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Prevailing."
And they say,"O say, "O you upon whom the message has been sent down, indeed you are mad.
He said,"My said, "My Lord, then reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected."
Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al- Aqsa, al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing.
And to warn those who say, " Allah "Allah has taken a son."
Say, " Allah "Allah is most knowing of how long they remained. He has [knowledge of] the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. How Seeing is He and how Hearing! They have not besides Him any protector, and He shares not His legislation with anyone."
And if they dispute with you, then say, " Allah "Allah is most knowing of what you do.
If you asked them, "Who created the heavens and earth and subjected the sun and the moon?" they would surely say, " Allah." "Allah." Then how are they deluded?
And if you asked them, "Who created the heavens and earth?" they would surely say, " Allah." "Allah." Say, "[All] praise is [due] to Allah "; but most of them do not know.
And [remember] when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease said, " Allah "Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion,"
Say, "Who provides for you from the heavens and the earth?" Say, " Allah. "Allah. And indeed, we or you are either upon guidance or in clear error."
Say, " Allah "Allah [alone] do I worship, sincere to Him in my religion,
And if you asked them, "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they would surely say, " Allah." "Allah." Say, "Then have you considered what you invoke besides Allah? If Allah intended me harm, are they removers of His harm; or if He intended me mercy, are they withholders of His mercy?" Say, "Sufficient for me is Allah; upon Him [alone] rely the [wise] reliers."
And a believing man from the family of Pharaoh who concealed his faith said, "Do you kill a man [merely] because he says, 'My Lord is Allah ' Allah' while he has brought you clear proofs from your Lord? And if he should be lying, then upon him is [the consequence of] his lie; but if he should be truthful, there will strike you some of what he promises you. Indeed, Allah does not guide one who is a transgressor and a liar.
And if you asked them who created them, they would surely say, " Allah." "Allah." So how are they deluded?
Say, " Allah "Allah causes you to live, then causes you to die; then He will assemble you for the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt, but most of the people do not know."
They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, ' Allah 'Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but in great error.' " error.'"
Say, " It "It is He who has multiplied you throughout the earth, and to Him you will be gathered."

In the name of Allah , Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
[All] praise is [due] to Allah , Allah, Lord of the worlds -
And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah , Allah, if you should be truthful.
And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ] Allah]
And [recall] when Moses prayed for water for his people, so We said, "Strike with your staff the stone." And there gushed forth from it twelve springs, and every people knew its watering place. "Eat and drink from the provision of Allah , Allah, and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption."
And We made it a deterrent punishment for those who were present and those who succeeded [them] and a lesson for those who fear Allah . Allah.
They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is." [Moses] said, "[ Allah ] "[Allah] says, 'It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,' so do what you are commanded."
Then your hearts became hardened after that, being like stones or even harder. For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah . Allah. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their own hands, then say, "This is from Allah ," Allah," in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.
And they say, "Never will the Fire touch us, except for a few days." Say, "Have you taken a covenant with Allah ? Allah? For Allah will never break His covenant. Or do you say about Allah that which you do not know?"
And [recall] when We took the covenant from the Children of Israel, [enjoining upon them], "Do not worship except Allah ; Allah; and to parents do good and to relatives, orphans, and the needy. And speak to people good [words] and establish prayer and give zakah." Then you turned away, except a few of you, and you were refusing.
And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life - [even] more than those who associate others with Allah . Allah. One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.
Say, "Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel - it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur'an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah , Allah, confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers."
And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, "We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practicing magic]." And [yet] they learn from them that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife. But they do not harm anyone through it except by permission of Allah . Allah. And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves, if they only knew.
And if they had believed and feared Allah , Allah, then the reward from Allah would have been [far] better, if they only knew.
And to Allah belongs the east and the west. So wherever you [might] turn, there is the Face of Allah . Allah. Indeed, Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. [ Allah ] [Allah] said, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people." [Abraham] said, "And of my descendants?" [ Allah ] [Allah] said, "My covenant does not include the wrongdoers."
And [mention] when Abraham said, "My Lord, make this a secure city and provide its people with fruits - whoever of them believes in Allah and the Last Day." [ Allah ] [Allah] said. "And whoever disbelieves - I will grant him enjoyment for a little; then I will force him to the punishment of the Fire, and wretched is the destination."
[And say, "Ours is] the religion of Allah . Allah. And who is better than Allah in [ordaining] religion? And we are worshippers of Him."
Or do you say that Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants were Jews or Christians? Say, "Are you more knowing or is Allah ?" Allah?" And who is more unjust than one who conceals a testimony he has from Allah ? Allah? And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah , Allah, "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.
Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah , Allah, and indeed to Him we will return."
Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah . Allah. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs 'umrah - there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good - then indeed, Allah is appreciative and Knowing.
And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah . Allah. But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah . Allah. And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment.
He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah . Allah. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah , Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.
It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations]. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you. And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread [of night]. Then complete the fast until the sunset. And do not have relations with them as long as you are staying for worship in the mosques. These are the limits [set by] Allah , Allah, so do not approach them. Thus does Allah make clear His ordinances to the people that they may become righteous.
Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.
And complete the Hajj and 'umrah for Allah . Allah. But if you are prevented, then [offer] what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals. And do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached its place of slaughter. And whoever among you is ill or has an ailment of the head [making shaving necessary must offer] a ransom of fasting [three days] or charity or sacrifice. And when you are secure, then whoever performs 'umrah [during the Hajj months] followed by Hajj [offers] what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals. And whoever cannot find [or afford such an animal] - then a fast of three days during Hajj and of seven when you have returned [home]. Those are ten complete [days]. This is for those whose family is not in the area of al-Masjid al-Haram. And fear Allah and know that Allah is severe in penalty.
Hajj is [during] well-known months, so whoever has made Hajj obligatory upon himself therein [by entering the state of ihram], there is [to be for him] no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. And whatever good you do - Allah knows it. And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah . Allah. And fear Me, O you of understanding.
Then depart from the place from where [all] the people depart and ask forgiveness of Allah . Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
And remember Allah during [specific] numbered days. Then whoever hastens [his departure] in two days - there is no sin upon him; and whoever delays [until the third] - there is no sin upon him - for him who fears Allah . Allah. And fear Allah and know that unto Him you will be gathered.
And when it is said to him, "Fear Allah ," Allah," pride in the sin takes hold of him. Sufficient for him is Hellfire, and how wretched is the resting place.
And of the people is he who sells himself, seeking means to the approval of Allah . Allah. And Allah is kind to [His] servants.
Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said,"When is the help of Allah ?" Allah?" Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.
They ask you about the sacred month - about fighting therein. Say, "Fighting therein is great [sin], but averting [people] from the way of Allah and disbelief in Him and [preventing access to] al-Masjid al-Haram and the expulsion of its people therefrom are greater [evil] in the sight of Allah . Allah. And fitnah is greater than killing." And they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion if they are able. And whoever of you reverts from his religion [to disbelief] and dies while he is a disbeliever - for those, their deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide therein eternally.
Indeed, those who have believed and those who have emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah - those expect the mercy of Allah . Allah. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
And if they decide on divorce - then indeed, Allah is Hearing and Merciful. Knowing.
Divorce is twice. Then, either keep [her] in an acceptable manner or release [her] with good treatment. And it is not lawful for you to take anything of what you have given them unless both fear that they will not be able to keep [within] the limits of Allah . Allah. But if you fear that they will not keep [within] the limits of Allah , Allah, then there is no blame upon either of them concerning that by which she ransoms herself. These are the limits of Allah , Allah, so do not transgress them. And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah - it is those who are the wrongdoers.
And if he has divorced her [for the third time], then she is not lawful to him afterward until [after] she marries a husband other than him. And if the latter husband divorces her [or dies], there is no blame upon the woman and her former husband for returning to each other if they think that they can keep [within] the limits of Allah . Allah. These are the limits of Allah , Allah, which He makes clear to a people who know.
And if you divorce them before you have touched them and you have already specified for them an obligation, then [give] half of what you specified - unless they forego the right or the one in whose hand is the marriage contract foregoes it. And to forego it is nearer to righteousness. And do not forget graciousness between you. Indeed Allah , Allah, of whatever you do, is Seeing.
Maintain with care the [obligatory] prayers and [in particular] the middle prayer and stand before Allah , Allah, devoutly obedient.
And when Saul went forth with the soldiers, he said, "Indeed, Allah will be testing you with a river. So whoever drinks from it is not of me, and whoever does not taste it is indeed of me, excepting one who takes [from it] in the hollow of his hand." But they drank from it, except a [very] few of them. Then when he had crossed it along with those who believed with him, they said, "There is no power for us today against Goliath and his soldiers." But those who were certain that they would meet Allah said, "How many a small company has overcome a large company by permission of Allah . Allah. And Allah is with the patient."
So they defeated them by permission of Allah , Allah, and David killed Goliath, and Allah gave him the kingship and prophethood and taught him from that which He willed. And if it were not for Allah checking [some] people by means of others, the earth would have been corrupted, but Allah is full of bounty to the worlds.
And [mention] when Abraham said, "My Lord, show me how You give life to the dead." [ Allah ] [Allah] said, "Have you not believed?" He said, "Yes, but [I ask] only that my heart may be satisfied." [ Allah ] [Allah] said, "Take four birds and commit them to yourself. Then [after slaughtering them] put on each hill a portion of them; then call them - they will come [flying] to you in haste. And know that Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise."
And the example of those who spend their wealth seeking means to the approval of Allah and assuring [reward for] themselves is like a garden on high ground which is hit by a downpour - so it yields its fruits in double. And [even] if it is not hit by a downpour, then a drizzle [is sufficient]. And Allah , Allah, of what you do, is Seeing.
If you disclose your charitable expenditures, they are good; but if you conceal them and give them to the poor, it is better for you, and He will remove from you some of your misdeeds [thereby]. And Allah , Allah, with what you do, is [fully] Acquainted.
Not upon you, [O Muhammad], is [responsibility for] their guidance, but Allah guides whom He wills. And whatever good you [believers] spend is for yourselves, and you do not spend except seeking the countenance of Allah . Allah. And whatever you spend of good - it will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.
[Charity is] for the poor who have been restricted for the cause of Allah , Allah, unable to move about in the land. An ignorant [person] would think them self-sufficient because of their restraint, but you will know them by their [characteristic] sign. They do not ask people persistently [or at all]. And whatever you spend of good - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it.
Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, "Trade is [just] like interest." But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah . Allah. But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.
And fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah . Allah. Then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly.
O you who have believed, when you contract a debt for a specified term, write it down. And let a scribe write [it] between you in justice. Let no scribe refuse to write as Allah has taught him. So let him write and let the one who has the obligation dictate. And let him fear Allah , Allah, his Lord, and not leave anything out of it. But if the one who has the obligation is of limited understanding or weak or unable to dictate himself, then let his guardian dictate in justice. And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses - so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her. And let not the witnesses refuse when they are called upon. And do not be [too] weary to write it, whether it is small or large, for its [specified] term. That is more just in the sight of Allah and stronger as evidence and more likely to prevent doubt between you, except when it is an immediate transaction which you conduct among yourselves. For [then] there is no blame upon you if you do not write it. And take witnesses when you conclude a contract. Let no scribe be harmed or any witness. For if you do so, indeed, it is [grave] disobedience in you. And fear Allah . Allah. And Allah teaches you. And Allah is Knowing of all things.
And if you are on a journey and cannot find a scribe, then a security deposit [should be] taken. And if one of you entrusts another, then let him who is entrusted discharge his trust [faithfully] and let him fear Allah , Allah, his Lord. And do not conceal testimony, for whoever conceals it - his heart is indeed sinful, and Allah is Knowing of what you do.
It is He who has sent down to you, [O Muhammad], the Book; in it are verses [that are] precise - they are the foundation of the Book - and others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah . Allah. But those firm in knowledge say, "We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord." And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.
Say, "Shall I inform you of [something] better than that? For those who fear Allah will be gardens in the presence of their Lord beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally, and purified spouses and approval from Allah . Allah. And Allah is Seeing of [His] servants -
The patient, the true, the obedient, those who spend [in the way of Allah ], Allah], and those who seek forgiveness before dawn.
Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah , Allah, then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account.
Say, "O Allah , Allah, Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will. In Your hand is [all] good. Indeed, You are over all things competent.
Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah , Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence. And Allah warns you of Himself, and to Allah is the [final] destination.
Say, [O Muhammad], "If you should love Allah , Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful."
But when she delivered her, she said, "My Lord, I have delivered a female." And Allah was most knowing of what she delivered, "And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of Allah ]." Allah]."
So her Lord accepted her with good acceptance and caused her to grow in a good manner and put her in the care of Zechariah. Every time Zechariah entered upon her in the prayer chamber, he found with her provision. He said, "O Mary, from where is this [coming] to you?" She said, "It is from Allah . Allah. Indeed, Allah provides for whom He wills without account."
He said, "My Lord, how will I have a boy when I have reached old age and my wife is barren?" The angel said, "Such is Allah ; Allah; He does what He wills."
[And mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ]. Allah].
She said, "My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?" [The angel] said, "Such is Allah ; Allah; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is.
And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], 'Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah . Allah. And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead - by permission of Allah . Allah. And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.
But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, "Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah ?" Allah?" The disciples said," We are supporters for Allah . Allah. We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].
Indeed, this is the true narration. And there is no deity except Allah . Allah. And indeed, Allah is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
Say, "O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah ." Allah." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him]."
Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah ]. Allah]. And he was not of the polytheists.
Indeed, the most worthy of Abraham among the people are those who followed him [in submission to Allah ] Allah] and this prophet, and those who believe [in his message]. And Allah is the ally of the believers.
