1. Verses about the Quran

1. It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom - although they were before in clear error. Al-Jumu'ah 62:2

2. And  it  was  not  [possible]  for  this  Quran  to  be  produced  by  other  than  Allah,  but  [it  is]  a confirmation  of  what  was  before  it  and  a  detailed  explanation  of  the  [former]  Scripture, about which there is no doubt, from the Lord of the worlds. Yoonus 10:37

3. Then do they not reflect upon the Quran? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction. An-Nisaa’ 4:82

4. There has come to you enlightenment from your Lord. So whoever will see does so for [the benefit  of]  his  soul,  and  whoever  is  blind  [does  harm]  against  it.  And  [say],  "I  am  not  a guardian over you." al-An'aam 6:104

5. Say,  [O  Muhammad],  "It  has  been  revealed  by  He  who  knows  [every]  secret  within  the heavens and the earth. Indeed, He is ever Forgiving and Merciful." Al-Furqaan 25:6

6. All the praises and thanks is [due] to Allah, Who has sent down to His slave (Muhammad)  the Book (the Quran), and has not placed therein any crookedness. [He has made it] Straight to give warning of a severe punishment from Him, and to give glad tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they shall have a fair reward. Al-Kahf 18:1-2

7. Say:  "If  the  mankind  and  the  jinns  were  together  to  produce  the  like  of  this  Quran,  they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another." Al-Israa' 17:88

8. And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? Al-Qamar 54:17

9. An Arabic Quran, without any crookedness (therein) in order that they may become God-fearing. Az-Zumar 39:28

10. And We have not revealed to you the Book, [O Muhammad], except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe. an-Nahl 16:64

11. And (remember) the Day when We shall raise up from every nation a witness against them from amongst themselves.  And  We  shall  bring  you  (O  Muhammad)  as  a  witness  against these. And We have sent down to you the Book (the Quran) as an exposition of everything, a guidance, a mercy, and glad tidings for those who have submitted themselves (to Allah as Muslims). An-Nahl:89

12. Verily, this Quran guides to that which is most just and right and gives glad tidings to the believers  who  work  deeds  of  righteousness,  that  they  shall  have  a  great  reward.  Al-Israa' 17:9

13. This [Quran] is enlightenment for mankind and guidance and mercy for a people who are certain [in faith]. Al-Jaathiyah 45:20

14. Verily,  it  is  We  Who  have  sent  down  the  the  Quran  and  surely,  We  will  guard  it  (from corruption). Al-Hijr 15:9

15. Falsehood  cannot  approach  it  from  before  it  or  from  behind  it;  [it  is]  a  revelation  from  a [Lord who is] Wise and Praiseworthy. Fussilat 41:42

2. Verses about Allah (God)

1. And your God is One God. There is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. Al-Baqarah 2:163

2. "And decree for us in this world [that which is] good and [also] in the Hereafter; indeed, we have turned back to You." [Allah] said, "My punishment - I afflict with it whom I will, but My mercy encompasses all things." So I will decree it [especially] for those who fear Me and give zakah (prescribed charity) and those who believe in Our verses. Al-‘Araaf 7:156 

3. Look then at the effects (results) of Allah's Mercy, how He revives the earth after its death. Verily! That (Allah) Who revived the earth after its death shall indeed raise the dead (on the Day of Resurrection), and He is Able to do all things. Ar-Room 30:50

4. And when it is said to them, "Prostrate to the Most Merciful," they say, "And what is the Most Merciful? Should we prostrate to that which you order us?" And it increases them in aversion. Al-Furqaan 25:60

5. Allah - there is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi (Footstool [of His Throne]) extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. Al-Baqarah 2:255

6. He  is  Allah,  whom  there  is  none  worthy  of  worship  except  He,  the  All-Knower  of  the unseen  and  the  seen  (open).  He is the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.  He  is  Allah, whom there is none worthy of worship except He, the King, the Holy, the One Free from all imperfections,  the  Giver  of  security,  the  Watcher  over  His  creatures,  the  All-Mighty,  the Compeller, the Supreme. Exalted is He above all that they associate [in worship] with Him. He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms. To Him belong the Best Names.  All  that  is  in  the  heavens  and  the  earth  glorify  Him.  And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. Al-Hashr 59:22-24

7. Say, "He is Allah, (the) One.  The Self-Sufficient Master.  He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." Al-Ikhlas 112:1-4

8. Say (O Muhammad): "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your God is One God. So whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord." Al-Kahf 18:110

9. Had there been within the heavens and earth gods besides Allah, they both would have been ruined. So exalted is Allah, Lord of the Throne, (High is He) above what they attribute to Him. Al-Anbiyaa’ 21:22

10. And whoever of them should say, "Indeed, I am a god besides Him"- that one We would recompense with Hell. Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers. Al-Anbiyaa’ 21:29

11. And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. Al-Israa’ 17:23

12. And We sent not before you (O Muhammad) any messenger except that We revealed to him that, "There is no deity except Me, so worship Me (alone)." Al-Anbiyaa’ 21:25

13. And who is more astray than he who invokes besides Allah those who will not respond to him until the Day of Resurrection, and they, of their invocation, are unaware. And when the people are gathered [that Day], they [who were invoked] will be enemies to them, and they will be deniers of their worship. Al-Ahqaaf 46:5-6

14. And those they invoke other than Allah create nothing, and they [themselves] are created. They  are,  [in  fact],  dead,  lifeless,  and  they  do  not  perceive  when  they  will  be  resurrected. An-Nahl 16:20-21

15. And do not invoke with Allah another deity. There is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him. Everything will be destroyed except His Face. His is the judgement, and to Him you will be returned. Al-Qasas 28:88 

16. Say,  "Invoke  those  you  have  claimed  [as  gods]  besides  Him,  for  they  do  not  possess  the [ability  for]  removal  of  adversity  from  you  or  [for  its]  transfer  [to  someone  else]."  Those whom they invoke seek [for themselves] means of access to their Lord, [striving as to] which of them would be nearest, and they hope for His mercy and fear His punishment. Indeed, the punishment of your Lord is ever feared. Al-Israa’ 17:56-57

17. And  whoever  invokes  besides  Allah  another  deity  for  which  he  has  no  proof  -  then  his account  is  only  with  his  Lord.  Indeed, the disbelievers will not succeed.  Al-Mu’minoon 23:117

18. And  of  the  people  is  he  who  worships  Allah  on  an  edge.  If he is touched by good, he is reassured by it; but if he is struck by trial, he turns on his face [to the other direction]. He has lost [this] world and the Hereafter. That is what is the manifest loss. He invokes instead of Allah that which neither harms him nor benefits him. That is what is the extreme error. He invokes one whose harm is closer than his benefit - how wretched the protector and how wretched the associate. Al-Hajj 22:11-13

19. We  will  show  them  Our  Signs  in  the  universe,  and  in  their  ownselves,  until  it  becomes manifest to them that this (the Quran) is the truth. Is it not sufficient in regard to your Lord that He is a Witness over all things? Fussilat 41:53

20. And of His signs is that He created you from dust; then, suddenly you were human beings dispersing [throughout the earth]. Ar-Room 30:20

21. O mankind! Remember the grace of Allah upon you! Is there any creator other than Allah who  provides  for  you  from  the  sky  (rain)  and  the  earth?  There  is  no  deity  [worthy  of worship] except Him, how then are you turning away (from Him)? Faatir 35:3

22. And He gave you from all you asked of Him. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful. Ibraheem 14:34

23. Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent?  But  of  the  people  is  he  who  disputes  about  Allah  without  knowledge  or  guidance  or  an enlightening Book [from Him]. Luqmaan 31:20

24. How can you disbelieve in Allah when you were lifeless and He brought you to life; then He will cause you to die, then He will bring you [back] to life (i.e., on the Day of Resurrection), and then to Him you will be returned. Al-Baqarah 2:28-29

25. Be cursed (the disbelieving) man! How ungrateful he is! From what substance did He create him? From a sperm-drop He created him and destined for him; then He eased the way for him. Abasa’ 80:17-20

26. O mankind! What has made you careless concerning your Lord, the Most Generous? Who created  you,  fashioned  you  perfectly,  and  gave  you  due  proportion;  In  whatever  form  He willed, He put you together. Al-Infitaar 82:6-8

3. Verses about the Creation

1. [He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed - and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving - [And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks? Al-Mulk 67:2-3

2. Have they not considered how Allah originates creation and then repeats it? Indeed that, for Allah, is easy. Al-‘Ankaboot 29:19

3. Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day,and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah  has  sent  down  from  the  heavens  of  rain,  giving  life  thereby  to  the  earth  after  its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds  and  the  clouds  controlled  between  the  heaven  and  the  earth  are  signs  for  a  people who use reason. Al-Baqarah 2:164

4. And how many a sign within the heavens and earth do they pass over while they, therefrom, are turning away. Yoosuf 12:105

5. Do they not contemplate within themselves? Allah has not created the heavens and the earth and what is between them except in truth and for a specified term. And indeed, many of the people, in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord, are disbelievers. Ar-Room 30:8

6. Or  were  they  created  by  nothing,  or  were  they  the  creators  [of  themselves]?  Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain. At-Toor 52:35-36

7. Indeed,  We  created  man  from  a  sperm-drop  mixture  that  We  may  try  him;  and  We made him hearing and seeing. Al-Insaan 76:2

8. O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (i.e., Adam), and from him  He  created  his  wife  (i.e.,  Eve),  and  from  them  both  He  created  many  men  and  women. And fear Allah through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allah is Ever an All-Watcher over you. An-Nisa 4:1

9. And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference. Al-Israa’ 17:70

10. And  We  have  already  created  man  and  know  what  his  soul  whispers  to  him,  and  We  are closer to him than [his] jugular vein. Qaaf 50:16

11. And Allah has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers not knowing a thing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to Allah). An-Nahl 16:78

12. Allah has created every [living] creature from water. And of them are those that move on their bellies and of them are those that walk on two legs, and of them are those that walk on four.  Allah creates what He wills.  Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.  An-Noor 24:45

13. Glory be to Him, Who has created all the pairs of that which the earth produces, as well as of their own (human) kind (male and female), and of that which they know not. Yaa Seen 36:36

14. We have created you, so why do you not believe? Have you seen that which you emit (i.e., semen which contains the potential for human life)? Is it you who creates it, or are We the Creator? We have decreed death among you, and We are not unable, to transfigure you and create you in (forms) that you do not know. And you have already know the first creation) i.e., the creation of Adam), so will you not remember? And have you seen that [seed] which you sow? Is it you who makes it grow, or are We the grower? If We willed, We could make it [dry] debris, and you would be regretful (or left in wonderment), [Saying], “Indeed, we are [now] in debt; Rather, we have been deprived.” And have you seen the water that you drink? Is it you who brought it down from the clouds, or is it We who bring it down? If We willed, We  could  make  it  bitter  (and  undrinkable), why  then  are  you  not  grateful  (to  Allah)?  Waqi'ah 56:57-70

4. Verses about the Prophets and Messengers

1. Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. And we revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Descendants, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the book [of Psalms]. And [We sent] messengers about whom We have related [their stories] to you before and messengers about whom We have not related to you. And Allah spoke to Moses with [direct] speech. [We sent] messengers as bringers of good tidings and warners so that mankind will have no argument against Allah after the messengers. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise. An-Nisaa’ 165: 163

2. And W e gave to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - all [of them] We guided. And Noah, We guided before; and among his descendants, David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the doers of good. And Zechariah and John and Jesus and Elia and all were of the righteous.  And  Ishmael  and  Elisha  and  Jonah  and  Lot-and  all  [of them] We preferred over the worlds. And [some] among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers - and We chose them and We guided them to a straight path. That is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whomever He wills of His servants. But if they had associated others [in worship] with Allah, then worthless for them would be whatever they were doing.  Those  are  the  ones  to  whom  We  gave  the  Scripture  and  authority  and prophethood. But if the disbelievers deny it, then We have entrusted it to a people who are not therein disbelievers. Al-An’aam 6:84-89

3. And for every nation is a messenger. So when their messenger comes, it will be judged between them in justice, and they will not be wronged. Yoonus 10:47

4. And  We  certainly  sent  into  every  nation  a  messenger,  [saying],  "Worship  Allah  and  avoid false dieties." And among them were those whom Allah guided, and among them were those upon whom error was [deservedly] decreed. So proceed through the earth and observe how was the end of the deniers. An-Nahl 16:36

5. Verses about Jesus Christ (peace be upon him)

1. He [Angel Gabriel] said, "I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy." She (Mary) said, "How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?" He said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.'" Maryam 19:19-21

2. Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, "Be," and he was. Ale-Imraan 3:59

3. The Messiah, son of Mary, was no more than a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded. Al-Maa’idah 5:75

4. O  People  of  the  Scripture,  do  not  exceed  the  limits  in  your  religion,  nor  say  about  Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers.  And  do  not  say,  "Three  (Trinity)";  desist  -  it  is  better  for  you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. an-Nisaa’ 4:171

5. It is not for a human [prophet] that Allah should give him the Scripture and authority and prophethood and then he would say to the people, "Be servants to me rather than Allah," but [instead, he would say], "Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied." Ale-Imraan 3:79 

6. And  [for]  their  saying,  "Indeed,  we  have  killed  the  Messiah,  Jesus,  the  son  of  Mary,  the messenger of Allah." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.  Rather, Allah  raised  him  (i.e.,  body  and  soul)  to  Himself  (and  he  is  in  the heavens). And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise. An-Nisaa 4:157-158

7. And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah?'" He will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.  I  said  not  to  them  except  what  You  commanded  me  -  to worship  Allah,  my  Lord  and  your  Lord.  And  I  was  a  witness  over  them  as  long  as  I  was among them; but when You took me up, You were the Observer over them, and You are, over all things, Witness. If You should punish them - indeed they are Your servants; but if You  forgive  them  -  indeed  it  is  You  who  is  the  Exalted  in  Might,  the  Wise.  Al-Maa’idah 118-5:116

6. Verses about the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

1. Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they, who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him - it is those who will be the successful. Al-‘Araaf 7:157

2. There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what  you  suffer  [of  injuries  or  adversities];  [he  is]  concerned  over  you  (i.e.,  to  be  rightly guided) and to the believers is kind and merciful. At-Tawbah 9:128

3. Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah, of all things, Knowing. Al-Ahzaab 33:40

11. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds. (Al-Anbiyaa’ 21:107

4. O mankind! Verily, there has come to you the Messenger (Muhammad) with the truth from your Lord, so believe in him, it is better for you. But if you disbelieve, then certainly to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise. An-Nisaa’ 4:170

7. Verses about the Religion

1. There is no compulsion in religion.  Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in false dieties and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. Al-Baqarah 2:256

2. And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed - all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers? Yoonus 10:99

3. We are most knowing of what they say, and you are not over them a tyrant (i.e., to force them to believe). But remind by the Quran whoever fears My threat. Qaaf 50:45

4. The  month  of  Ramadhan  [is  that]  in  which  was  revealed  the  Quran,  a  guidance  for  the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. Al-Baqarah 2:185

5. And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty.  [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named  you  "Muslims"  before  [in  former  scriptures]  and  in  this  [revelation]  that  the Messenger  may  be  a  witness  over  you  and  you  may  be  witnesses  over  the  people.  So establish  prayer  and  give  zakah  (prescribed  charity)  and  hold  fast  to  Allah.  He is your protector; and excellent is The Protector, and excellent is The Helper. Al-Hajj 22:78

6. Recite,  [O  Muhammad],  what  has  been  revealed  to  you  of  the  Book  and  establish  prayer. Indeed,  prayer  prohibits  immorality  and  wrongdoing,  and  the  remembrance  of  Allah  is greater. And Allah knows that which you do. Al-‘Ankaboot 29:45

8. Verses about the Noble Traits of the Believers

1. 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, with what you do, is [fully] Acquainted. Al-Baqarah 2:271

2. Those who have believed and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest. Ar-Ra’ad 13:28

3. The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord they rely. Al-Anfaal 8:2

4. Say, "Never will we be struck except by what Allah has decreed for us; He is our protector." And upon Allah let the believers rely. At-Tawbah 9:51 Race toward forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden whose width is like the width of the heavens and earth, prepared for those who believed in Allah and His messengers. That is the bounty  of  Allah  which  He  gives  to  whom  He  wills,  and  Allah  is  the  possessor  of  great bounty. Al-Hadeed 57:21

5. And  the  slaves  of  the  Most  Beneficent  are  those  who  walk  on  the  earth  in  humility  and sedateness, and when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with mild words of gentleness. Al-Furqaan 25:63

6. And do not turn your cheek [in contempt] toward people and do not walk through the earth exultantly. Indeed, Allah does not like everyone self-deluded and boastful. And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys. Luqmaan 31:18-19

7. And  tell  My  servants  to  say  that  which  is  best.  Indeed,  Satan  induces  [dissension]  among them. Indeed Satan is ever, to mankind, a clear enemy. (Al-Israa’ 17:53) O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allah and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth. Al-Ahzaab 33:70

8. So give the relative his right, as well as the needy and the traveler. That is best for those who desire the countenance of Allah , and it is they who will be the successful. Ar-Room 30:38

9. And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way. Al-Israa’ 17:32

10. Say  (O  Muhammad):  "Come,  I  will  recite  what  your  Lord  has  prohibited  to  you.  [He commands]  that  you  not  associate  anything  with  Him,  and  to  parents,  [show]  good treatment, and do not kill your children out of poverty; We will provide for you and them. And do not approach immoralities - what is apparent of them and what is concealed. And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed] except by [legal] right. This has He instructed you that you may use reason." Al-An’aam 6:151

11. Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (i.e., from looking at forbidden things) and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do. An-Noor 24:30

12. O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do. Al-Maa’idah 5:8

13. And  those  who,  when  an  oppressive  wrong  is  done  to  them,  they  take  revenge.  And  the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation - his reward is [due] from Allah. Indeed, He does not like wrongdoers. Ash-Shooraa 42:39-40

14. But seek, through that which Allah has given you, the home of the Hereafter; and [yet], do not forget your share of the world. And do good as Allah has done good to you. And desire not corruption in the land. Indeed, Allah does not like corrupters. Al-Qasas 28:77

9. Verses about the Life of this World

1. O  my  people,  this  worldly  life  is  only  [temporary]  enjoyment,  and  indeed,  the  Hereafter  -that is the home of [permanent] settlement. Ghaafir 40:39

2. But you prefer the worldly life, While the Hereafter is better and more enduring. Al-‘Alaa 17-87:16

3. Beautified  for  those  who  disbelieve  is  the  life  of  this  world,  and  they  ridicule  those  who believe. But those who fear Allah are above them on the Day of Resurrection. And Allah gives provision to whom He wills without account. Al-Baqarah 2:212

4. And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient. Al-Baqarah 2:15

10. Verses about the Resurrection

1. O People, if you should be in doubt about the Resurrection, then [consider that] indeed, We created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a clinging clot, and then from a lump of flesh, formed and unformed - that We may show you. And We settle in the wombs whom We will for a specified term, then We bring you out as a child, and then [We develop you] that you may reach your [time of] maturity. And among you is he who is taken in [early] death, and among you is he who is returned to the most decrepit [old] age so that he knows, after [once having] knowledge, nothing. And you see the earth barren, but when We send down upon it rain, it quivers and swells and grows [something] of every beautiful kind. That is because Allah is the Truth and because He gives life to the dead and because He is over all things competent. And [that they may know] that the Hour is coming - no doubt about it - and that Allah will resurrect those in the graves. Al-Hajj 22:5-7

2. And he presents for Us an example and forgets his [own] creation. He says, "Who will give life to bones while they are disintegrated?" Say, "He will give them life who produced them the first time; and He is, of all creation, Knowing."  Yaa Seen 36:78-79

3. And they say, "When we are bones and crumbled particles, will we [truly] be resurrected as a new creation?"  Say,  "Be  you  stones  or  iron  or  [any]  creation  of  that  which  is  great  within your breasts." And they will say, "Who will restore us?" Say, "He who brought you forth the first time." Then they will nod their heads toward you and say, "When is that?" Say, "Perhaps it will be soon.” Al-Israa’ 17:49-51

11. Verses about Death 

1. Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection.  So  he  who  is  drawn  away  from  the  Fire  and  admitted  to  Paradise  has attained  [his  desire].  And  what  is  the  life  of  this  world  except  the  enjoyment  of  delusion. Ale-‘Imraan 3:185

2. Say,  "Indeed,  the  death  from  which  you  flee  -  indeed,  it  will  meet  you.  Then you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and He will inform you about what you used to do." Al-Jumu’ah 62:8

3. So  direct  your  face  toward  the  correct  religion  before  a  Day  comes  from  Allah  of  which there is no repelling. That Day, they will be divided.  Ar-Room 30:43

4. And spend [in the way of Allah] from what We have provided you before death approaches one of you and he says, "My Lord, if only You would delay me for a brief term so I would give charity and be among the righteous." But never will Allah delay a soul when its time has come. And Allah is Acquainted with what you do. Al-Munaafiqoon 63:10-11

12. Verses about the Day of Judgment

1. And warn them, [O Muhammad], of the Approaching Day, when hearts are at the throats, filled [with distress]. For the wrongdoers there will be no devoted friend and no intercessor [who is] obeyed. Ghaafir 40:18

2. And  fear  a  Day  when  no  soul  will  suffice  for  another  soul  at  all,  nor  will  intercession  be accepted from it, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be aided. Al-Baqarah 2:48

3. On  the  Day  when  every  soul  will  come  disputing  for  itself,  and  every  soul  will  be  fully compensated for what it did, and they will not be wronged. An-Nahl 16:111

4. And on the Day of Resurrection you will see those who lied about Allah [with] their faces blackened. Is there not in Hell a residence for the arrogant? Az-Zumar 39:60

5. O mankind, fear your Lord. Indeed, the convulsion of the [final] Hour is a terrible thing. On the Day you see it every nursing mother will be distracted from that [child] she was nursing, and every pregnant woman will abort her pregnancy, and you will see the people [appearing] intoxicated  while they  are  not  intoxicated;  but  the  punishment  of  Allah  is  severe.  Al-Hajj 2-22:1

6. On the Day a man will flee from his brother, And his mother and his father, And his wife and his children.  Everyman,  that  Day,  will  have  enough  to  make  him  careless  of  others. ‘Abasa 80:34-37

7. And you will see every nation kneeling [from fear]. Every nation will be called to its record [and  told],  "Today  you  will  be  recompensed  for  what  you  used  to  do.  This, Our record, speaks about you in truth. Indeed, We were having transcribed whatever you used to do." Al-Jaathiyah 45:28-29

8. Indeed,  We  have  warned  you  of  a  near  punishment  on  the  Day  when  a  man  will  observe what  his  hands  have  put  forth  and  the  disbeliever will say, "Oh, I wish that I were dust!"  An-Naba’ 78:40

9. And the record [of deeds] will be placed [open], and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it, and they will say, "Oh, woe to us! What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it?"  And they will find what they did present [before them]. And your Lord does injustice to no one. Al-Kahf 18:49

10. So as for he who is given his record in his right hand, he will say, "Here, read my record! Indeed, I was certain that I would be meeting my account." So he will be in a pleasant life. Al-Haaqah 69:19-21

11. But as for he who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, "Oh, I wish I had not been given  my  record  And  had  not  known  what  is  my  account.  I wish my death had been the decisive one.  My wealth has not availed me.  Gone from me is my authority."  Al-Haaqah 29-69:25

12. The Day every soul will find what it has done of good present [before it] and what it has done of evil, it will wish that between itself and that [evil] was a great distance. And Allah warns you of Himself, and Allah is Kind to [His] servants." Ale-Imraan 3:30

13. Indeed,  Allah  does  not  wrong  the  people  at  all,  but  it  is  the  people  who  are  wronging themselves. Yoonus 10:44

14. So as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord will admit them into His mercy. That is what is the clear attainment. But as for those who disbelieved, [it will be said], "Were  not  Our  verses  recited  to  you,  but  you  were  arrogant  and  became  a  people  of criminals?  And  when  it  was  said,  'Indeed,  the  promise  of  Allah  is  truth  and  the  Hour  [is coming]  -  no  doubt  about  it,'  you  said,  'We  know  not  what  is  the  Hour.  We assume only assumption, and we are not convinced.'" And the evil consequences of what they did will appear  to  them,  and  they  will  be  enveloped  by  what  they  used  to  ridicule.  Al-Jaathiyah33-45:30

13. Verses about the Hereafter

1. Indeed, those who have said, "Our Lord is Allah" and then remained on a right course - the angels will descend upon them, [saying], "Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised. We [angels] were your allies in worldly life and [are so] in the Hereafter. And you will have therein whatever your souls desire, and you will have  therein  whatever  you  request  [or  wish],  As  accommodation  from  a  [Lord  who  is ]Forgiving and Merciful." Fussilat 41:31-32

2. [For  the  believers  are]  gardens  of  perpetual  residence  which  they  will  enter. They will be adorned  therein  with  bracelets  of  gold  and  pearls,  and  their  garments  therein  will  be  silk. And they will say, "Praise to Allah, who has removed from us [all] sorrow. Indeed, our Lord is Forgiving and Appreciative - He who has settled us in the home of duration out of His bounty. There touches us not in it any fatigue, and there touches us not in it weariness [of mind]." Faatir 35:33-35

3. And We will have removed whatever is within their breasts of resentment, [while] flowing beneath them are rivers. And they will say, "Praise to Allah, who has guided us to this; and we would never have been guided if Allah had not guided us. Certainly the messengers of our Lord had come with the truth."  And  they  will  be  called,  "This  is  Paradise,  which  you have been made to inherit for what you used to do." Al-‘Araaf 7:43

4. Indeed, whoever comes to his Lord as a criminal (i.e., disbeliever, sinner) - indeed, for him is Hell; he will neither die therein nor live. Ta Ha 20:74

5. And for those who disbelieved in their Lord is the punishment of Hell, and wretched is the destination.  When  they  are  thrown  into  it,  they  hear  from  it  a  [dreadful]  inhaling  while  it boils up. It almost bursts with rage. Every time a company is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did there not come to you a warner?" They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, ' Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but in great error.' " And they will say, "If only we had been listening or reasoning, we would not be among the companions  of  the  Blaze."  And  they  will  admit  their  sin,  so  [it  is]  alienation  for  the companions of the Blaze. Al-Mulk 67:6-11

6. The Day their faces will be turned about in the Fire, they will say, "How we wish we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger." And they will say, "Our Lord, indeed we obeyed our  masters  and  our  dignitaries,  and  they  led  us  astray  from  the  [right]  way."  Al-Ahzaab 67-33:66

14. An Admonition to Humanity:

1. O  mankind,  worship  your  Lord,  who  created  you  and  those  before  you,  that  you  may become righteous – [He] who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy,  and  sent  down  water  (rain)  from  the  sky  and  brought  forth  therewith  fruits  as  a provision for you.  Then do not set up rivals unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped). Al-Baqarah 2:21-22

In closing, we hope what you have read has been an inspiration and enlightenment for you, as well as an encouragement to learn more about the Quran, the teachings of Islam, and the life of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
