Allah's Questions To The Unbelievers

Does man reckon he will be left to go on unchecked? Was he not a drop of ejaculated sperm, then an alaq (embryo) which He created and shaped, making from it both sexes, male and female? Is He Who does this not able to bring the dead to life? (Qur'an, 75:36-40)

When they are told, 'Follow what Allah has sent down to you,' They say, 'We are following what we found our fathers doing.' What, even though their fathers did not understand a thing and were not guided! (Qur'an, 2:170)

What harm would it have done them to have believed in Allah and the Last Day and to have given of what Allah has provided for them? Allah knows everything about them. (Qur'an, 4:39)

Or do they indeed really own a portion of Allah's kingdom? In that case they do not give so much as a scrap to other people! (Qur'an, 4:53)

Say: 'What do you think? If Allah took away your hearing and your sight and sealed up your hearts, what god is there, other than Allah, who could give them back to you?' Look how We vary the Signs, yet still they turn away! (Qur'an, 6:46)

What are they waiting for but for the angels to come to them or for your Lord Himself to come, or for one of your Lord's Signs to come? On the day that one of your Lord's Signs does come, no faith which a self professes will be of any use to it if it did not believe before and earn good in its faith. Say: 'Wait, then; We too are waiting.' (Qur'an, 6:158)

Have they not looked into the dominions of the heavens and the earth and what Allah has created, and seen that it may well be that their appointed time is near? In what discourse after this will they believe? (Qur'an, 7:185)

Say: 'Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?' Say: 'Allah.' Say: 'So why have you taken protectors apart from Him who possess no power to help or harm themselves?' Say: 'Are the blind and seeing equal? Or are darkness and light the same? Or have they assigned partners to Allah Who create as He creates, so that all creating seems the same to them?' Say: 'Allah is the Creator of everything. He is the One, the All-Conquering.' (Qur'an, 13:16)

Do those who plot evil actions feel secure that Allah will not cause the earth to swallow them up or that a punishment will not come upon them from where they least expect? (Qur'an, 16:45)

They say, 'Why have no Signs been sent down to him from his Lord?' Say: 'The Signs are with Allah. I am only a clear warner.'

Do they not ponder these words? Has anything come to them that did not come to their ancestors the previous peoples? (Qur'an, 23:68)

We created you so why do you not confirm the truth? (Qur'an, 56:57)

Have you thought about the water that you drink? Is it you who sent it down from the clouds or are We the Sender? If We wished We could have made it bitter, so will you not give thanks? (Qur'an, 56:68-70)

Have they not travelled in the earth and seen the final fate of those before them? They had greater strength than them and cultivated the land and inhabited it in far greater numbers than they do. Their Messengers also came to them with the Clear Signs. Allah would never have wronged them; but they wronged themselves. (Qur'an, 30:9)

Say: 'Praise be to Allah and peace be upon His servants whom He has chosen.' Is Allah better, or what you associate with Him? (Qur'an, 27:59)

They will shout out in it, 'Our Lord! Take us out! We will act rightly, differently from the way we used to act!' Did We not let you live long enough for anyone who was going to pay heed to pay heed? And did not the warner come to you? Taste it then! There is no helper for the wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 35:37)

Mankind! Remember Allah's blessing to you. Is there any creator other than Allah providing for you from heaven and earth? There is no god but Him. So how have you been perverted? (Qur'an, 35:3)

Who is there who could provide for you if He withholds His provision? Yet still they obstinately persist in insolence and evasion. (Qur'an, 67:21)

Or do you ask them for a wage so they are weighed down with debt? Or is the Unseen in their hands so they can write out what is to happen? Or do they desire to dupe you? But the duped ones are those who do not believe. Or do they have some god other than Allah? Glory be to Allah above any idol they propose. (Qur'an, 52:40-43)

Have you thought about what you cultivate? Is it you who make it germinate or are We the Germinator? If We wished We could have made it broken stubble. You would then be left devoid of crops, distraught: (Qur'an, 56:63-65)

Have you thought about the fire that you light? Is it you who make the trees that fuel it grow or are We the Grower? (Qur'an, 56:71-72)

Does he imagine that no one has power over him? He says, 'I have consumed vast quantities of wealth.' Does he imagine that no one has seen him? Have We not given him two eyes, and a tongue and two lips (Qur'an, 90:5-9)

Would We make the Muslims the same as the evildoers? What is the matter with you? On what basis do you judge? Or do you have a Book which you study, so that you may have anything in it you choose? Or do you have oaths which bind Us, extending to the Day of Rising, that you will have whatever you decide? Ask them which of them stands as guarantor for that! Or do they have Divine partners? Then let them produce their partners if they are telling the truth! (Qur'an, 68:35-41)

And how is it with you that you do not give in the Way of Allah, when the inheritance of the heavens and the earth belongs to     Allah? Those of you who gave and fought before the Victory are not the same as those who gave and fought afterwards. They are higher in rank. But to each of them Allah has promised the Best. Allah is aware of what you do. (Qur'an, 57:10)

Does not man recall that We created him before when he was not anything? (Qur'an, 19:67)

You have known the first formation, so will you not pay heed? (Qur'an, 56:62)

Say: 'What do you think? If, one morning, your water disappears into the earth who will bring you running water?' (Qur'an, 67:30)

Who is better guided: he who goes grovelling on his face or he who walks upright on a straight path? (Qur'an, 67:22)

But the mercy of your Lord is better than anything they amass. (Qur'an, 43:31-32)

We destroyed those of your kind in the past. But is there any rememberer there? (Qur'an, 54:51)

SOME OF THE CAUSE AND EFFECT
RELATIONSHIPS  MENTIONED
IN THE QUR'AN

You who believe! If you have fear of Allah, He will give you discrimination and erase your bad actions from you and forgive you. Allah's favour is indeed immense. (Qur'an, 8:29)

And when your Lord announced: "If you are grateful, I will certainly give you increase, but if you are ungrateful, My punishment is severe."' (Qur'an, 14:7)

O Prophet! Spur on the believers to fight. If there are twenty of you who are steadfast, they will overcome two hundred; and if there are a hundred of you, they will overcome a thousand of those who do not believe, because they are people who do not understand. (Qur'an, 8:65)

He said, 'Go down from it, all of you, as enemies to one another! But when guidance comes to you from Me, all those who follow My guidance will not go astray and will not be miserable. (Qur'an, 20:123)

If something good happens to you, it galls them. If something bad strikes you, they rejoice at it. But if you are steadfast and guard against evil, their scheming will not harm you in any way. Allah encompasses what they do. (Qur'an, 3:120)

You who believe! You are only responsible for yourselves. The misguided cannot harm you as long as you are guided. All of you will return to Allah and He will inform you about what you were doing. (Qur'an, 5:105)

But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one and on the Day of Rising We will gather him blind.' (Qur'an, 20:124)

Obey Allah and His Messenger and do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappears. And be steadfast. Allah is with the steadfast. (Qur'an, 8:46)

We have never sent a Prophet to any city without seizing its people with hardship and distress so that hopefully they would be humble. (Qur'an, 7:94)

That is because Allah would never change a blessing He has conferred on a people until they had changed what was in themselves. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 8:53)

If only the people of the cities had believed and guard against evil, We would have opened up to them blessings from heaven and earth. But they denied the truth so We seized them for what they earned (Qur'an, 7:96)

Then when they have reached their deadline either retain them with correctness and courtesy or part from them with correctness and courtesy. Call two upright men from among yourselves as witnesses and they should carry out the witnessing for Allah. This is admonishment for all who believe in Allah and the Last Day. Whoever has fear of Allah—He will give him a way out, and provide for him from where he does not expect. Whoever puts his trust in     Allah—He will be enough for him. Allah always achieves His aim. Allah has appointed a measure for all things. (Qur'an, 65:2-3)

In the case of those of your wives who are past the age of menstruation, if you have any doubt, their count is three months, and that also applies to those who have not yet menstruated. The time for women who are pregnant is when they give birth. Whoever has fear of Allah—He will make matters easy for him. That is Allah's command which He has sent down to you.Whoever has fear of Allah—He will erase his bad actions from him and greatly increase his reward. (Qur'an, 65:4-5)

Say: 'My Lord expands the provision of any of His servants He wills or restricts it. But anything you expend will be replaced by Him. He is the Best of Providers.' (Qur'an, 34:39)

NOBODY CAN BE FORCED
TO BE A MUSLIM

So remind them! You are only a reminder. You are not in control of them. (Qur'an, 88:21-22)

If your Lord had willed, all the people on the earth would have believed. Do you think you can force people to be believers? (Qur'an, 10:99)

We know best what they say.You are not a dictator over them.So remind, with the Qur'an, whoever fears My Threat. (Qur'an, 50:45)

There is no compulsion where the religion is concerned. Right guidance has become clearly distinct from error. Anyone who rejects false gods and believes in Allah has grasped the Firmest Handhold, which will never give way. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 2:256)

But if they turn their backs, you are only responsible for clear transmission. (Qur'an, 16:82)

Say: 'Mankind! The truth has come to you from your Lord. Whoever is guided is only guided for his own good. Whoever is misguided is only misguided to his detriment. I have not been set over you as a guardian.' (Qur'an, 10:108)

He frowned and turned away, because the blind man came to him. But how do you know? Perhaps he would be purified, or reminded, and the reminder benefit him. As for him who thinks himself self-sufficient, you give him your complete attention, but it is not up to you whether or not he is purified. But as for him who comes to you eagerly, showing fearfulness, from him you are distracted. No indeed! Truly it is a reminder, and whoever wills pays heed to it. (Qur'an, 80:1-12)

THE QUR'AN COMMANDS PEOPLE
TO FORGIVE AND BE TOLERANT

Allah commands justice and doing good and giving to relatives. And He forbids indecency and doing wrong and tyranny. He warns you so that hopefully you will pay heed. (Qur'an, 16:90)

Correct and courteous words accompanied by forgiveness are better than charity followed by insulting words. Allah is Rich Beyond Need, All-Forbearing. (Qur'an, 2:263)

Whether you reveal a good act or keep it hidden, or pardon an evil act, Allah is Ever-Pardoning, All-Powerful. (Qur'an, 4:149)

Make allowances for people, command what is right, and turn away from the ignorant. (Qur'an, 7:199)

The repayment of a bad action is one equivalent to it. But if someone pardons and puts things right, his reward is with Allah. Certainly He does not love wrongdoers. But if people do defend themselves when they are wronged, nothing can be held against them for doing that. There are only grounds against those who wrong people and act as tyrants in the earth without any right to do so.Such people will have a painful punishment. But if someone is steadfast and forgives,that is the most resolute course to follow. (Qur'an, 42:40-43)

Those, who avoid major wrong actions and indecencies and who, when they are angered, then forgive. (Qur'an, 42:37)
