The Prophet to Wait Patiently and Worship

So wait patiently for your Lord’s judgment, for you are under Our Eyes (under Our care and protection); and glorify your Lord with His praise when you rise up (to pray); and in the night-time, also glorify Him; and at the retreat of the stars. (Tur 52:48-49)

God’s Help to the Prophet in His Mission

And (recall, O Messenger) how those who disbelieve schemed against you to take you captive, or kill you, or drive you away (from Makkah). Thus were they scheming, but God put His will into effect (and brought their scheme to nothing). God wills what is the best (for His believing servants) and makes His will prevail. (al-Anfal 8:30)

And if they seek (thereby only) to deceive you (O Messenger), surely God is sufficient for you. He it is Who has strengthened you with His help and with the believers. He has attuned their (the believers’) hearts. If you had spent all that is on the earth, you could not have attuned their hearts, but God has attuned them. Surely He is All-Glorious with irresistible might, All-Wise. O (most illustrious) Prophet! God is sufficient for you and the believers who follow you. (al-Anfal 8:62-64)

The Prophet’s Forbearance

(Even so, O Messenger) adopt the way of forbearance and tolerance, and enjoin what is good and right, and withdraw from the ignorant ones (do not care what they say or do). (al-A’raf 7:199)

Obeying the Messenger of God

Obey God and obey the Messenger (whose commands are based on Divine Revelation), and be on the alert (against opposing them). If you turn away (from obedience to them), then know that what rests with Our Messenger is only to convey the Message fully and clearly. (al-Ma’idah 5:92)

Not to Dispute with the Prophet Regarding the Religion

For every community, We have appointed a whole system of worship which they are to observe. So do not let those (who follow their own systems) draw you into disputes concerning this matter, but continue to call people to your Lord. You are most certainly on the straight path leading to pure guidance. (all-Hajj 22:67)

Obey what God and His Messenger Decree

When God and His Messenger have decreed a matter, it is not for a believing man and a believing woman to have an option insofar as they themselves are concerned. Whoever disobeys God and His Messenger has evidently gone astray. (al-Ahzab 33:36)

Polytheists Seeking to Tempt the Prophet

They have indeed sought to tempt you (O Messenger) away from what We have revealed to you so that you may fabricate something else against Us. And then (had you done so), they would have taken you as a trusted friend. And had We not made you wholly firm (in what We reveal to you), you might just have inclined to them a little bit. In that case, We would have made you taste double punishment in life and double punishment after death, and you would have found none to help you against Us. (al-Isra 17:73-75)

The Night Journey

All-Glorified is He Who took His servant for a journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque the environs of which We have blessed, so that We might show him some of Our signs (of the truths concerning Our Divinity and Lordship). Surely He is the One Who hears and sees. (al-Isra 17:1)

The Lote-Tree of the Utmost Boundary

Assuredly, he saw him during a second descent, by the Lote-tree of the utmost boundary. Near it is the Garden of Refuge and Dwelling. Meanwhile, that was covering the Lote-tree which was covering it. The sight (of the Messenger) did not swerve (so that he looked elsewhere and saw something different), nor did it go wrong (so that he might have seen an illusion). Indeed, he saw one among the greatest signs of His Lord. (an-Najm 53:13-18)

The Helpers Supporting the Immigrants

Those who, before their coming, had their abode (in Madinah), preparing it as a home for Islam and faith, love those who emigrate to them for God’s sake, and in their hearts do not begrudge what they have been given; and (indeed) they prefer them over themselves, even though poverty be their own lot. (They, too, have a share in such gains of war.) Whoever is guarded against the avarice of his own soul those are the ones who are truly prosperous. (al-Hashr 59-9)

Hudaybiyah Treaty as a Victory

We have surely granted you a manifest victory (which is a door to further victories). (al-Fath 48:1)

Hudaybiyah Treaty as an Achievement

That God may forgive you (O Messenger) your lapses of the past and those to follow, and complete His favor on you, and guide you (to steadfastness) on a straight path (leading to God’s being pleased with You and eternal happiness); and that God may help you to a glorious, mighty achievement. (al-Fath 48:2-3)

God Sending Reassurance to Believers’ Hearts

He it is Who sent down His (gift of) inner peace and reassurance into the hearts of the believers, so that they might add faith to their faith. To God belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth; and God is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (al-Fath 48:4)
