The revelation of this Book (the Quran) is from Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.

Verily, We have sent down the Book to you (O Muhammad SAW) in truth: So worship Allah (Alone) by doing religious deeds sincerely for Allah"s sake only, (and not to show-off, and not to set up rivals with Him in worship).

Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya" (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say):"We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.

Had Allah willed to take a son (or offspring or children), He could have chosen whom He pleased out of those whom He created. But glory be to Him! (He is above such things). He is Allah, the One, the Irresistible.

He has created the heavens and the earth with truth. He makes the night to go in the day and makes the day to go in the night. And He has subjected the sun and the moon. Each running (on a fixed course) for an appointed term. Verily, He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving.

He created you (all) from a single person (Adam); then made from him his wife [Hawwa" (Eve)]. And He has sent down for you of cattle eight pairs (of the sheep, two, male and female; of the goats, two, male and female; of the oxen, two, male and female; and of the camels, two, male and female). He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation in three veils of darkness, such is Allah your Lord. His is the kingdom, La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). How then are you turned away?

If you disbelieve, then verily, Allah is not in need of you, He likes not disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased therewith for you. No bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, so He will inform you what you used to do. Verily, He is the All-Knower of that which is in (men"s) breasts.

And when some hurt touches man, he cries to his Lord (Allah Alone), turning to Him in repentance, but when He bestows a favour upon him from Himself, he forgets that for which he cried for before, and he sets up rivals to Allah, in order to mislead others from His Path. Say:"Take pleasure in your disbelief for a while: surely, you are (one) of the dwellers of the Fire!"

Is one who is obedient to Allah, prostrating himself or standing (in prayer) during the hours of the night, fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the Mercy of his Lord (like one who disbelieves)? Say:"Are those who know equal to those who know not?" It is only men of understanding who will remember (i.e. get a lesson from Allah"s Signs and Verses).

Say (O Muhammad SAW):"O My slaves who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism), be afraid of your Lord (Allah) and keep your duty to Him. Good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world, and Allah"s earth is spacious (so if you cannot worship Allah at a place, then go to another)! Only those who are patient shall receive their rewards in full, without reckoning."

Say (O Muhammad SAW):"Verily, I am commanded to worship Allah (Alone) by obeying Him and doing religious deeds sincerely for Allah"s sake only and not to show off, and not to set up rivals with Him in worship;

"And I am commanded (this) in order that I may be the first of those who submit themselves to Allah (in Islam) as Muslims."

Say (O Muhammad SAW):"Verily, if I disobey my Lord, I am afraid of the torment of a great Day."

Say (O Muhammad SAW)"Allah Alone I worship by doing religious deeds sincerely for His sake only and not to show-off, and not to set up rivals with Him in worship."

So worship what you like besides Him. Say (O Muhammad SAW):"The losers are those who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Verily, that will be a manifest loss!"

They shall have coverings of Fire, above them and covering (of Fire) beneath them; with this Allah does frighten His slaves:"O My slaves, therefore fear Me!"

Those who avoid At-Taghut (false deities) by not worshipping them and turn to Allah in repentance, for them are glad tidings; so announce the good news to My slaves,

Those who listen to the Word [good advice La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) and Islamic Monotheism, etc.] and follow the best thereof (i.e. worship Allah Alone, repent to Him and avoid Taghut, etc.) those are (the ones) whom Allah has guided and those are men of understanding (like Zaid bin"Amr bin Nufail, Salman Al-Farisi and Abu Dhar Al-Ghifari). [Tafsir Al-Qurtubi, Vol. 12, P. 244]

Is, then one against whom the Word of punishment justified (equal to the one who avoids evil). Will you (O Muhammad SAW) rescue him who is in the Fire?

But those who fear Allah and keep their duty to their Lord (Allah), for them are built lofty rooms; one above another under which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise). (This is) the Promise of Allah: and Allah does not fail in (His) Promise.
