The believers are only those who have believed in Allah and His Messenger and then have had no doubt and have strived with their wealth and themselves in the Way of Allah. They are the ones who are true to their word. (Surat al-Hujurat, 15) 

When they listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they recognise of the truth. They say, ‘Our Lord, we believe! So write us down among the witnesses.’  (Surat al-Ma’ida, 83) 

[Those who guard against evil are] those who believe in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down before you, and are certain about the hereafter. (Surat al-Baqara, 4) 

 

GENUINE BELIEVERS HAVE A PROFOUND AWE OF ALLAH

those who fear their Lord in the Unseen and are apprehensive about the Hour. (Surat al-Anbiya’, 49)

whose hearts quake at the mention of Allah, and who are steadfast in the face of all that happens to them, those who establish salat and give of what We have provided for them. (Surat al-Hajj, 35) 

… They only intercede on behalf of those with whom He is pleased, and even they are apprehensive out of fear of Him. (Surat al-Anbiya’, 28)

… They outdid one another in good actions, calling out to Us in yearning and in awe, and humbling themselves to Us. (Surat al-Anbiya’, 90)

Among the people of the Book there are some who believe in Allah and in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down to them, and who are humble before Allah. They do not sell Allah’s Signs for a paltry price. Such people will have their reward with their Lord. And Allah is swift at reckoning.  (Surah Al’ Imran, 199)


GENUINE BELIEVERS FEAR ALLAH

[Prophets are] those who conveyed Allah’s Message and had fear of Him, fearing no one except Allah. Allah suffices as a Reckoner. (Surat al-Ahzab, 39) 

[Believers are] those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord. (Surat al-Ma‘arij, 27)

Those who fear their Lord in the Unseen will have forgiveness and an immense reward. (Surat al-Mulk, 12) 

The believers are those whose hearts tremble when Allah is mentioned, whose faith is increased when His Signs are recited to them, and who put their trust in their Lord. (Surat al-Anfal, 2)

...There are some rocks from which rivers gush out, and others which split open and water pours out, and others which crash down from fear of Allah. Allah is not unaware of what you do.  (Surat al-Baqara, 74)


GENUINE BELIEVERS SINCERELY SUBMIT TO ALLAH

The steadfast, the truthful, the obedient, the givers, and those who seek forgiveness before dawn. (Surah Al’ Imran, 17) 

As for those who believe and do right actions and humble themselves before their Lord, they are the Companions of the Garden, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (Surah Hud, 23) 


GENUINE MUSLIMS HOLD ALLAH ABOVE ALL THINGS

[There are men who are] not distractedby trade or commerce from the remembrance of Allah and the establishment of prayer and the payment of alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil. (Surat an-Nur, 37)

But those who had been given knowledge said, ‘Woe to you! Allah’s reward is better for those who believe and act rightly. But only the steadfast will obtain it.’ (Surat al-Qassas, 80)

[Believers are] those to whom people said, ‘The people have gathered against you, so fear them.’ But that merely increased their faith and they said, ‘Allah is enough for us and the Best of Guardians.’  (Surah Al’ Imran, 173) 

Some people set up equals to Allah, loving them as they should love Allah. But those who believe have greater love for Allah… (Surat al-Baqara, 165) 

You who believe! If any of you renounce your religion, Allah will bring forward a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble to the believers, fierce to the unbelievers, who strive in the Way of Allah and do not fear the blame of any censurer. That is the unbounded favor of Allah which He gives to whoever He wills. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 54)

 

GENUINE BELIEVERS LIVE THEIR WHOLE LIVES FOR ALLAH’S SAKE

Say: ‘My prayer and my rites, my living and my dying, are for Allah alone, the Lord of all the worlds.’  (Surat al-An'am, 162) 

And among the people there are some who give up everything, desiring the good pleasure of Allah. Allah is Ever-Gentle with His servants.  (Surat al-Baqara, 207) 

They [the believers] give food, despite their love for it, to the poor and orphans and captives. (Believers say,) ‘We feed you only out of desire for the Face of Allah. We do not want any repayment from you or any thanks.Truly We fear from our Lord a glowering, calamitous Day.’ (Surat al-Insan, 8-10)

[those] desiring only the Face of their Lord Most High. They will certainly be satisfied. (Surat al-Layl, 20-21) 

… Whatever good you give away is to your own benefit, when you give desiring only the Face of Allah. Whatever good you give away will be repaid to you in full…. (Surat al-Baqara, 272)

 
GENUINE MUSLIMS STRIVE ON ALLAH’S PATH WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT

But the Messenger and those who believe along with him have strived with their wealth and with themselves. They are the people who will have the good things. They are the ones who are successful.  (Surat at-Tawba, 88) 

The believers are only those who have believed in Allah and His Messenger and then have had no doubt and have strived with their wealth and themselves in the Way of Allah. They are the ones who are true to their word. (Surat al-Hujurat, 15)

 
THEY NEVER WEARY OF DIFFICULTIES IN THE STRUGGLE ON ALLAH’S PATH

Many a Prophet has been fought, when there were many thousands with him! They did not give up in the face of what assailed them in the Way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor did they yield. Allah loves the steadfast.  (Surah Al’Imran, 146) 

Those who who did good and guarded against evil among those who responded to Allah and the Messenger after the wound had been inflicted will have an immense reward. (Believers are) those to whom people said, ‘The people have gathered against you, so fear them.’ But that merely increased their faith and they said, ‘Allah is enough for us and the Best of Guardians.’ (Surah Al’Imran, 172-173)

Those who, when disaster strikes them, say, ‘We belong to Allah and to Him we will return.’ (Surat al-Baqara, 156)

 
GENUINE BELIEVERS ARE HEROIC AND STEADFAST AND NEVER FEAR FOR THE FUTURE

Say: ‘Everyone is waiting expectantly so wait expectantly. You will soon know who are the Companions of the Right Path and who is is guided.’ (Surah Ta Ha, 135) 

Say: ‘What do you await for us except for one of the two best things? But what we await for you is for Allah to inflict a punishment on you either directly from Himself or at our hands. So wait, we are waiting with you!’ (Surat at-Tawba, 52) 

Say: ‘Call on your partner-gods and try all your wiles against me and grant me no reprieve.’ (Surat al-A'raf, 195) 

He [Pharaoh] said, ‘Have you believed in him before I authorised you? He is your chief who taught you magic. But you will soon know! I will cut off your alternate hands and feet and I will crucify every one of you.’ They said, ‘We do not care! We are returning to our Lord.’ (Surat ash-Shu‘ara’, 49-50)

If anyone argues with you about him after the knowledge that has come to you, say, ‘Come then! Let us summon our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves. Then let us make earnest supplication and call down the curse of Allah upon the liars.’ (Surah Al ’Imran, 61) 

Say to those who have no faith: ‘Do as you think best. That is what we are doing.’(Surah Hud, 121) 

[Jethro said,] ‘We would be inventing lies against Allah if we returned to your religion after Allah has saved us from it. We could never return to it unless Allah our Lord so willed. Our Lord encompasses everything in His knowledge. We have put our trust in Allah… (Surat al-A’raf, 89) 

Recite to them the story of Noah when he said to his people, ‘My people, if my standing here and reminding you of Allah’s Signs has become too much for you to bear, know that I have put my trust in Allah. So decide, you and your gods, on what you want to do and be open about it.Do with me whatever you decide and do not keep me waiting. (Surah Yunus, 71)

 

THEY NEVER PERMIT THOSE WITH A HYPOCRITICAL CHARACTER TO REMAIN AMONG THEM

If Allah returns you to a group of them, and they ask you for permission to go out, say, ‘You will never go out with me, nor will you ever fight an enemy with me.’ You were happy to stay behind the first time, so stay behind with those who are left behind. (Surat at-Tawba, 83) 

When you go out to get the booty, those who remained behind will say, ‘Allow us to follow you,’ desiring to alter Allah’s words. Say: ‘You may not follow us. That is what Allah said before.’ They will say, ‘It is only because you envy us.’ No indeed! How little they have understood!  (Surat al-Fath, 15)

 
THEY TAKE ONLY ALLAH AND OTHER BELIEVERS AS THEIR FRIENDS

You will not find people who believe in Allah and the Last Day having love for anyone who opposes Allah and His Messenger, though they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers or their clan.Allah has inscribed faith upon such people’s hearts and will reinforce them with a Spirit from Him and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever… (Surat al-Mujadala, 22)

 
THEY TRUST SOLELY IN ALLAH, NOT IN POWER AND MEANS

…But those who were sure that they were going to meet Allah said, ‘How many a small force has triumphed over a much greater one by Allah’s permission! Allah is with the steadfast.’ (Surat al-Baqara, 249)

 
GENUINE BELIEVERS ARE NEVER HESITANT IN LIVING BY THE RELIGION

As for those who believe and do right actions, He will pay them their wages in full and will give them increase from His favour. As for those who show disdain and grow arrogant, He will punish them with a painful punishment. They will not find any protector or helper for themselves besides Allah. (Surat an-Nisa, 173)

 

ALLAH PROTECTS HIS GENUINE SERVANTS

[Say:] ‘My Protector is Allah Who sent down the Book. He takes care of the righteous.’ (Surat al-A’raf, 196)

But anyone who does right actions, being a believer, need fear no wrong or any belittlement. (Surah Ta Ha, 112)

Those with faith, those who are Jews, and the Christians and Sabaeans, all who believe in Allah and the Last Day and act rightly, will have their reward with their Lord. They will feel no fear and will know no sorrow. (Surat al-Baqara, 62)

 


GENUINE FAITH AND BEHAVIOR ARE WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE IN THE SIGHT OF ALLAH

Wealth and sons are the embellishment of the life of this world. But, in your Lord’s sight, right actions which are lasting bring a better reward and are a better basis for hope. (Surat al-Kahf, 46)

 
ALLAH LOVES HIS GENUINE SERVANTS

As for those who believe and do right actions, the All-Merciful will bestow His love on them. (Surah Maryam, 96)

 
ALLAH BESTOWS A FINE LIFE ON HIS GENUINE SERVANTS

Anyone who acts rightly, male or female, being a believer, We will give them a good life and We will recompense them according to the best of what they did.  (Surat an-Nahl, 97)

 

ALLAH PROMISIES DOMINION TO HIS GENUINE SERVANTS

We wrote down in the Psalms, after the Reminder came: ‘It is My servants who are righteous who will inherit the earth. Certainly there is a transmission in this for people who worship. (Surat al-Anbiya’, 105-106)

Allah has promisedthose of you who believe and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their religion with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. ‘They worship Me, not associating anything with Me.’ Any who disbelieve after that, such people are deviators.  (Surat an-Nur, 55)

 
GENUINE MUSLIMS ARE THE MOST AUSPICIOUS OF ALL CREATION

But those who believe and do right actions – they are the best of creatures. (Surat al-Bayyina, 7)

 
GENUINE MUSLIMS CONSTANTLY REMEMBER ALLAH, AND THEIR HEARTS TREMBLE WHEN ALLAH IS REMEMBERED

The believers are those whose hearts tremble when Allah is mentioned, whose faith is increased when His Signs are recited to them, and who put their trust in their Lord (Surat al-Anfal, 2) 

[People with intelligence are] those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: ‘Our Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to You! So safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire.’(Surah Al ’Imran, 191) 

those who believe and whose hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah. Only in the remembrance of Allah can the heart find peace.’ (Surat ar-Ra'd, 28) 

[There are men who are] not distractedby trade or commerce from the remembrance of Allah and the establishment of prayer and the payment of alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil. (Surat an-Nur, 37) 

whose hearts quakeat the mention of Allah, and who are steadfast in the face of all that happens to them, those who establish prayer and give of what We have provided for them. (Surat al-Hajj, 35)

 
GENUINE BELIEVERS REALIZE THEIR HELPLESSNESS IN THE FACE OF ALLAH

They said, ‘Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves. If you do not forgive us and have mercy on us, we will be among the lost.’ (Surat al-A'raf, 23) 

… ‘Our Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make a mistake! Our Lord, do not place on us a load like the one You placed on those before us! Our Lord, do not place on us a load we have not the strength to bear! And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy on us. You are our Master, so help us against the people of the disbelievers.’ (Surat al-Baqara, 286) 

Say: ‘No one can protect me from Allah and I will never find any refuge apart from Him. (Surat al-Jinn, 22) 

Say: ‘I possess no power to help or harm myself, except as Allah wills. If I had had knowledge of the Unseen, I would have sought to gain much good and no evil would have touched me. I am only a warner and a bringer of good news to people who believe.’ (Surat al-A'raf, 188)

 

THEY ARE NOT PROUD

The people who truly do believe in Our Signs are those who fall to the ground prostrating when they are reminded of them, and glorify their Lord with praise, and are not arrogant. (Surat al-Sajda, 15) 

The servants of the All-Merciful are those who walk lightly on the earth and, who, when the ignorant speak to them, say, ‘Peace’. Surat al-Furqan, 63)

 
THEY DO NOT PERSIST IN THEIR ERRORS

[People who guard against evil are] those who, when they act indecently or wrong themselves, remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their bad actions (and who can forgive bad actions except Allah?) and do not knowingly persist in what they were doing. (Surah Al ’Imran, 135) 

Do not ever stand in it (a mosque set up to create division among the believers). A mosque founded on performing one’s duty from the first day has a greater right for you to stand in it. In it there are men who love to purify themselves. Allah loves those who purify themselves.  (Surat at-Tawba, 108)

 
GENUINE MUSLIMS TRUST IN AND DEPEND ON ALLAH

[Believers are] those to whom people said, ‘The people have gathered against you, so fear them.’ But that merely increased their faith and they said, ‘Allah is enough for us and the Best of Guardians.’ (Surah Al ’Imran, 173) 

[Their Messengers said,] ‘And why indeed should we not put our trust in Allah when He has guided us to our ways? We will be steadfast however much you harm us. Those who trust put their trust in Allah. (Surah Ibrahim, 12) 

But if they turn away, say, ‘Allah is enough for me. There is no god but Him. I have put my trust in Him. He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.’ (Surat at-Tawba, 129)

 
THEY KNOW THAT HELP COMES FROM ALLAH ALONE

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful, the King of the Day of Judgment. You alone we worship. You alone we ask for help. (Surat al-Fatiha, 1-4) 

They then produced his shirt with false blood on it. He said, ‘It is merely that your lower selves have suggested something to you which you did; but beauty lies in showing steadfastness. It is Allah alone Who is my Help in face of the event that you describe.’ (Surah Yusuf, 18)

 

GENUINE MUSLIMS ARE POWERFULLY BOUND TO THE QUR’AN

Those to whom We have given the Book, who recite it in the way it should be recited, such people believe in it… (Surat al-Baqara, 121)

As for those who hold fast to the Book and perform prayer, We will not let the wage of the righteous be wasted. (Surat al-A'raf, 170)

 
THE VERSES OF THE QUR’AN INCREASE THEIR FAITH AND FEAR OF ALLAH

Say: ‘Believe in it or do not believe in it.’ Certainly, when it is recited to them, those who were given knowledge before it fall on their faces in prostration, saying, ‘Glory be to our Lord! The promise of our Lord is truly fulfilled!’ Weeping, they fall to the ground in prostration, and it increases them in humility.(Surat al-Isra’, 107-109)

[Believers are] those who, when they are reminded of the Signs of their Lord, do not turn their backs, deaf and blind to them; (Surat al-Furqan, 73)

The believers are those whose hearts tremble when Allah is mentioned, whose faith is increased when His Signs are recited to them, and who put their trust in their Lord. (Surat al-Anfal, 2)

 
THEY KNOW THAT ALL THEIR ATTRIBUTES COME FROM ALLAH

[Joseph said,] ‘My Lord, You have granted power to me on earth and taught me the true meaning of events. Originator of the heavens and earth, You are my Friend in this world and the Next. So take me as a Muslim at my death and join me to the people who are righteous.’ (Surah Yusuf, 101) 

He taught Adam the names of all things. Then He arrayed them before the angels and said, ‘Tell me the names of these if you are telling the truth.’ They [the angels] said, ‘Glory be to You! We have no knowledge except what You have taught us. You are the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.’ (Surat al-Baqara, 31-32) 

He [Joseph] said, ‘No meal to feed you will arrive before I have informed you what they mean. That is part of what my Lord taught me. For I have left the religion of a people who clearly have no faith in Allah and who refuse to acknowledge the truth of the world to come.’ (Surah Yusuf, 37)

 
THEIR IS NO POLYTHEISM IN GENUINE FAITH

Allah has promised those of you who believe and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their religion with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. ‘They worship Me, not associating anything with Me.’…(Surat an-Nur, 55)

except those who repent and put things right and hold fast to Allah and dedicate their religion to Allah alone; they are with the believers. Allah will give the believers an immense reward. (Surat an-Nisa’, 146) 

Say: ‘Mankind! If you are in any doubt about my religion, I do not worship those you worship besides Allah. Rather I worship Allah Who will take you back to Him and I am commanded to be one of the believers’. (Surah Yunus, 104)


 

GENUINE BELIEVERS HAVE AN ABSOLUTE BELIEF IN DESTINY

Say: ‘Nothing can happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us. He is Our Master. It is in Allah that the believers should put their trust.’ (Surat at-Tawba, 51)

 
THEY STRIVE TO DRAW CLOSE TO ALLAH

[Believers are] those who say, ‘Our Lord, give us joy in our wives and children and make us a good example for those who guard against evil’. (Surat al-Furqan, 74)

Such people are truly racing towards good things, and they are the first to reach them. (Surat al-Mu'minun, 61)

 
THEY COMMAND GOOD AND FORBID EVIL

[Believers are] those who, if We establish them firmly on the earth, will perform prayer and give the alms, and command what is right and forbid what is wrong. The end result of all affairs is with Allah. (Surat al-Hajj, 41) 

You are the best nation ever to be produced before mankind. You enjoin the right, forbid the wrong and believe in Allah. If the People of the Book were to believe, it would be better for them. Some of them are believers but most of them are deviators. (Surah Al’Imran, 110) 

They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and compete in doing good. They are among the righteous.  (Surah Al’Imran, 114) 

 
THEY ALWAYS BEHAVE WELL AND PROPERLY

Those who listen well to what is said and follow the best of it, they are the ones whom Allah has guided, they are the people of intelligence. (Surat az-Zumar, 18)

They outdid one another in good actions, calling out to Us in yearning and in awe, and humbling themselves to Us. (Surat al-Anbiya, 90) 

Those who repent, those who worship, those who praise, those who fast, those who bow, those who prostrate, those who command the right, those who forbid the wrong, those who preserve the limits of Allah: give good news to the believers.  (Surat at-Tawba, 112)

 

THEY DO NOT ACT IN THE LIGHT OF THEIR EARTHLY DESIRES

[Joseph said,] ‘I do not say my self was free from blame. The self indeed commands to evil acts – except for those my Lord has mercy on. My Lord, He is Forgiving, Merciful.’ (Surah Yusuf, 53)

 
THEY ARE NEVER UNGRATEFUL TO ALLAH

He who possessed knowledge of the Book said, ‘I will bring it to you before your glance returns to you.’ And when he saw it standing firmly in his presence, he said, ‘This is part of my Lord's favor to test me to see if I will give thanks or show ingratitude. Whoever gives thanks only does so to his own gain. Whoever is ungrateful, my Lord is Rich Beyond Need, Generous.’ (Surat an-Naml, 40)

 
THEY LOOK TOWARD THE HEREAFTER

We purified their sincerity through sincere remembrance of the Abode. (Surat as-Sad, 46) 

Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their wealth in return for the Garden. They fight in the Way of Allah and they kill and are killed. It is a promise binding on Him in the Torah, the Gospel and the Qur’an and who is GENUINE to his contract than Allah? Rejoice then in the bargain you have made… (Surat at-Tawba, 111) 

Indeed we are returning to our Lord! (Surat az-Zukhruf, 14)

 
THOSE WHO ARE INSINCERE WILL REGRET IT IN THE HEREAFTER

When death comes to one of them, he says, ‘My Lord, send me back again so that perhaps I may act rightly regarding the things I failed to do!’ No indeed! It is just words he utters. Before them there is an interspace until the Day they are raised up. (Surat al-Muminun, 99-100) 

If only you could see the evildoers hanging their heads in shame before their Lord: ‘Our Lord, we have seen and we have heard, so send us back again and we will act rightly. Truly we now have certainty.’ (Surat al-Sajda, 12) 

Give from what We have provided for you before death comes to one of you and he says, ‘My Lord, if only you would give me a little more time so that I can give charity and be one of the righteous!’ (Surat al-Munafiqun, 10)

 
ALLAH TELLS HIS GENUINE SERVANTS OF THEIR HAPPINESS IN THIS WORLD AND THE HEREAFTER

Those who believe and do right actions, happiness will be theirs and a wonderful Homecoming. (Surat ar-Rad, 29) 

As for those who hold fast to the Book and perform prayer, We will not let the wage of the righteous be wasted. (Surat al-A’raf, 170) 

Give the good news to those who believe anddo right actions that they will have Gardens with rivers flowing under them. When they are given fruit there as provision, they will say, ‘This is what we were given before.’ But they were only given a simulation of it. They will have there spouses of perfect purity and will remain there timelessly, for ever. (Surat al-Baqara, 25) 

As for those who believe and do right actions, We will pay them their wages in full. Allah does not love wrongdoers. (Surah Al’Imran, 57) 

Anyone, male or female, who does right actions and is a believer, will enter the Garden. They will not be wronged by so much as the tiniest speck. (Surat an-Nisa, 124)
