What is Quran?
Al-Baqara (2:1) Alif, Lam, Meem. (2:2) This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah – (2:3) Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them, (2:4) And who believe in what has been revealed to you, and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith]. (2:5) Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.
(3:2) Allah – there is no deity except Him, the
Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence.
(3:3) He has sent down upon you the Book in truth, confirming
what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.
(3:4) Before as a guidance for mankind and also
revealed this Al-Furqan [criterion for judgment between right and wrong]. Surely those who reject Allah’s revelations
will be sternly punished; Allah is Mighty, capable of retribution.
(3:7) It is He who has sent down to you the Book; in
it are verses [that are] precise – they are the foundation of the Book – and
others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its
interpretation except Allah. But those firm in knowledge say, “We
believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord.” And no one will be
reminded except those of
(3:138) This [the Quran] is a clear declaration to mankind, a guidance
and an admonition to those who fear Allah!
(4:82) Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.
(4:105) Indeed, We have revealed to you, the Book in truth so you may
judge between the people by that which Allah has shown you. So be not
an advocate for those who betray trust.
(4:106) And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
(7:2) [This is] a Book revealed to you – so let there not be in your breast distress therefrom – that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.
(11:1) [This is] a Book whose verses are
perfected and then presented in detail from [one who is] Wise and Acquainted.
(11:2) “Do not worship except Allah. Indeed, I
am to you from Him a warner and a bringer of good tidings,”
(11:3) And [saying], “Seek forgiveness of your
Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a
specified term and give every doer of favor his favor. But if you turn away,
then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great Day.
(11:4) To Allah is your return, and He is over all
(12:1) Alif L’am Ra. These are the verses of the Book that make things clear.
(12:2) We have revealed this Quran in the Arabic language so that you may
(12:3) We relate to you the best of stories through this Quran by Our
revelation to you, though before this you were one of those who did not know.
(15:87) And We have certainly given you, seven of the often repeated [verses] and the great Qur’an.
(15:88) Do not extend your eyes toward that by which We have given enjoyment to [certain] categories of the disbelievers, and do not
grieve over them. And lower your wing to the believers
(15:89) And say, “Indeed, I am the clear warner”
(16:64) And We have not revealed to you the Book except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.
the Day when We will resurrect among every nation a witness over them from themselves. And We will bring you as a witness over your nation. And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims.
(16:97) Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he
is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We
will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the
best of what they used to do.
(16:98) So when you recite the Qur’an, [first] seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the expelled [from His mercy].
(16:99)Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.
(16:100) His authority is only over those who take him as an ally and those who through him associate others with Allah.
(17:78) Establish prayer at the decline of the
sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur’an
of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed.
(17:79) And from [part of] the night, pray with it as additional
for you; it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a
(17:80) And say, “My Lord, cause me to enter a sound entrance and to exit a sound exit and grant me from Yourself a supporting authority.”
(17:81) And say, “Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart.”
(17:82) And We send down of the Qur’an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.
(31:2) These are verses of the wise Book,
(31:3) As guidance and mercy for the doers of good
(31:4) Who establish prayer and give zakah, and they, of the Hereafter, are certain [in faith].
(39:2) Indeed, We have sent down to you the Book in truth. So worship Allah, [being] sincere to Him in religion.
(39:3) Unquestionably, for Allah is the pure religion. And those who take protectors besides Him [say], “We only worship them that they may bring us nearer to Allah in position.” Indeed, Allah will judge between them concerning that over which they differ. Indeed, Allah does not guide he who is a liar and [confirmed] disbeliever.
(39:41) Indeed, We sent down to you the Book for the people in truth. So whoever is guided – it is for [the benefit of] his soul; and whoever goes astray only goes astray to its detriment. And you are not a manager over them.
(42:52) And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed you
guide to a straight path –
(42:53) The path of Allah, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and
whatever is on the earth. Unquestionably, to Allah do [all] matters evolve.
(73:20) Indeed, your Lord knows, that you stand [in prayer] almost two thirds of the night or half of it or a third of it, and [so do] a group of those with you. And Allah determines [the extent of] the night and the day. He has known that you [Muslims] will not be able to do it and has turned to you in forgiveness, so recite what is easy [for you] of the Qur’an. He has known that there will be among you those who are ill and others traveling throughout the land seeking [something] of the bounty of Allah and others
fighting for the cause of Allah. So recite what is easy from it and establish
prayer and give zakah and loan Allah a goodly loan. And whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah. It is better and greater in reward. And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
