Pearls From The Qur’an

God’s Response to the Hypocrites

If God brings you back (from the Campaign), and a party of them ask your leave to go forth to war with you, say to them: “Never will you go forth with me any more, nor will you fight an enemy in my company. You were content to stay at home on that first occasion, so continue to stay at home with those who are (naturally) bound to remain behind!” And never do the funeral Prayer over any of them who dies, nor stand by his grave to pray for him. They surely disbelieved in God and His Messenger, and died as transgressors. (at-Taubah 9:83-84)

Offering Alms Before Consulting the Messenger

O you who believe! When you intend to consult the Messenger in private, offer something in alms (to the needy) before your consultation. That is better for you and purer. Yet, if you do not find (means to do so), then God is surely All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate. (al-Mujadilah 58:12)

Those who Oppose God and His Messenger

Those who oppose God and His Messenger surely those will be among the most abased. (al-Mujadilah 58:20)

Banu Nadir Jews Leaving Madinah

He it is Who drove out those who disbelieve from among the People of the Book from their (fortified) homes as the first instance of gathering (them for punishment and banishment from the heartland of Islam). You did not think that they would go forth (so easily), just as they thought that their strongholds would protect them against God. But (the will of) God came upon them from where they had not reckoned (it could come): He cast dread into their hearts. And so they were wrecking their homes by their own hands, as well as by the hands of the believers. Learn a lesson, then, O people of insight. (al-Hashr 59:2)

Gains of War to the Emigrants

(Gains of war are) also for the poor Emigrants, who have been driven from their homes and their property, seeking favor with God and His approval and good pleasure, and who help (the cause of) God and His Messenger. Those are they who are truthful (in their profession of faith and loyalty to its commands). (al-Hashr 59:8)

Not Taking for Friends who Make War Against Believers

God only forbids you, as regards those who make war against you on account of your Religion and drive you away from your homes, or support others to drive you away, to take them for friends and

guardians. Whoever takes them for friends and guardians, those are the wrongdoers. (al-Mumtahana 60:9)

The Prophet Accepting Allegiance from Women

O Prophet! When the believing women (who have professed Islam) come to you to swear allegiance to you that they will never associate partners with God in any way, and will not steal, and will not commit any illegal sexual intercourse, and will not kill their children, and will not indulge in slander (such as attributing any of their children to other than their own father) that they have willfully devised, and that they will not disobey you in anything that is proper; then accept their allegiance and ask God for their forgiveness. Surely God is All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate. (al-Mumtahana 60:12)

God will Perfect His Light

They long to extinguish God’s light with (a breath from) their mouths (as if it entailed no more than extinguishing a candle with a breath), but God will surely perfect His light, however hateful (it may be) to the unbelievers. (as-Saff 61:8)

God Sent the Messenger to Make His Religion Prevail

He it is Who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the Religion of truth (based on truth, and embodying it), that He may make it prevail over all religions, however hateful it may be to those who associate partners with God. (as-Saff 61:9)

The Prophet’s Staying away from His Wives for a Month

O Prophet (you who are the greatest representative of Prophethood)! Why do you forbid (yourself) what God has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives. And God is All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate. God has already decreed for you (O believers) on the breaking of your oaths (to do what is not just and right, and the expiation thereof). God is your Guardian, and He is the All-Knowing, the All-Wise. (It so happened that) the Prophet confided something to one of his wives, and when she divulged it (to another), and God acquainted him of it, he made known part of it, and missed out part. And when he informed her of it, she asked: “Who has told you this?” He said: “He informed me Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Aware.” If you two (wives of the Prophet) turn to God in repentance (then that is indeed what you should do); for the hearts of both of you swerved (from what is right). But if you back each other up against him, (be mindful that) God Himself is His Guardian, and that Gabriel, and the righteous ones among the believers, and all the angels besides, are his helpers. It may happen that his Lord, if he should divorce you (O wives of the Prophet), will give him in your place wives better than you submissive to God (muslimah), true in faith (mu’minah), devout in obedience to God, penitent, dedicated to worship and fasting widows or virgins. (at-Tahrim 66:1-5)

A Group from the Jinn are Becoming Believers

Say (O Messenger): “It has been revealed to me that a company of the jinn gave ear (to my recitation of the Qur’an); then (when they returned to their people) they said: ‘We have indeed heard a wonderful Qur’an, guiding to what is right in belief and action, and so we have believed in it; and will never associate any as partner with our Lord; And He – exalted is the majesty of our Lord – has taken neither consort nor child. Whereas, the foolish among us uttered an enormity against God; and (we were mistaken when) we thought that humankind and jinn would never speak a falsehood against God. (But we have come to see that) there have indeed been men from among humankind who took refuge in some men from among the jinn, and so (the former) increased them (the latter) in conceit, rebellion and wrongdoing. And they (those men) have thought, as you have thought, that God would never raise anyone (as Messenger from among them). But now when we sought to reach heaven, we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires (shooting-stars). We used to be established in position to overhear (its inhabitants); but now whoever attempts to listen finds a flaming fire in wait for him. We (being prevented from overhearing) did not know whether evil is intended for those who live on the earth, or their Lord wills for them right guidance and good. There are among us such as are righteous (in conduct and apt to believe), and there are those who are otherwise. We have been sects with divergent paths. We have come to know that we can by no means frustrate God (in His will on the earth), nor can we frustrate Him by flight. And when we heard the guidance (embodied in the Qur’an), we (immediately) believed in it. Whoever believes in his Lord has no fear of loss (of being wronged in return for his faith and for the good deeds required by faith) or disgrace.” (al-Jinn 72:1-13)
