22:11  And amongst men are those who serve Allah wavering on a brink; so that if there befall him good, he is comforted; but if there befall him a trial, he falls away. He loses both this world and the Hereafter - that is an obvious loss
22:12  He calls, besides Allah, on what can neither harm him nor profit him - that is a wide error
22:13  He calls on him whose harm is nearer than his benefit - verily, an evil patron and an evil comrade
22:14  Verily, Allah makes those who believe and do aright enter into Gardens beneath which rivers flow; verily, Allah does what He intends
22:15  He who thinks that Allah will not help him (Muhammad) in this world or in the Hereafter, let him stretch a rope to the ceiling (or heaven) and put an end to himself; and then let him see if his plan will remove that which enrages him
22:16  Thus have We sent down Manifest Signs; for, verily, Allah guides whom He will

22:29  Then let them make an end of their self-neglect, and let them pay their vows and go around the ancient House
22:30  That do. And whoever magnifies the sacred things of Allah it is better for him with his Lord. Cattle are lawful for you, except that which has been recited to you. So shun the abomination of idols, and shun lying speech
22:31  Turning unto Allah only, not associating aught with Him; for he who associates aught with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from heaven, and the birds snatch him up, or the wind blows him away into a far distant place
22:32  That is his State. And he who honours the Symbols of Allah (and sacrificial animals), they come (or ought to come) from the piety of heart

22:37  Their meat will never reach to Allah, nor yet their blood, but the piety from you will reach Him. Thus hath He subjected them to you that you may magnify Allah for guiding you: and give you glad tidings to those who do right
22:38  Verily, Allah will defend those who are true; verily, Allah loves not any treacherous ingrate (or traitor and ingrate)
22:39  Permission is given to those who fight because they have been wronged, and, indeed, Allah has power to give them victory
22:40  Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said, "Our Lord is Allah;" - for were it not for Allah repelling some men by means of others, cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is
22:41  Those who, if We establish them in the land, are steadfast in prayer, and give regular charity, and bid what is right, and forbid what is wrong - with Allah rests the end (final outcome) of affairs
22:42  But if they call you liar, even so did the people of Noah, and the tribes of A´ad and Thamud, they denied (My messengers) before you
22:43  And the people of Abraham, and the people of Lot
22:44  And the dweller of Midian; and Moses was called a liar too: but I indulged the disbelievers a long while, and then I seized them, and how terrible was My rejection
22:45  And how many a city (community) have We destroyed while it was guilty (did wrong), and it tumbled down on its roof, lying ruined to this day, and how many a deserted well and lofty palace
22:46  Have they not travelled through the land? And have they not heart wherewith to feel (understand), and ears wherewith to hear? For, indeed, it is not their eyes that are blind, but it is the hearts which are within their breasts that grow blind
22:47  They will bid you to hasten on the torment, but Allah will never fail in his promise; for, verily, a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you number
22:48  And to how many a city have I given full range while it yet did wrong! Then I seized it, and unto Me was the return
22:49  Say, "O mankind! I am naught but a plain Warner to you
22:50  "And to those who believe and do right, for them is forgiveness and a generous provision
22:51  But those who strive to discredit Our signs, they are rightful owners of the Fire."
22:52  We have not sent before you any messenger or prophet, but that when he formed a desire (or recited the message), Satan introduced not something (evil or vain) into it; but Allah annuls what Satan proposes; then does Allah confirm (establish) His Signs (r
22:53  That He may make that which Satan introduces a trial unto those in whose heart is a disease, and those whose heart are hardened - verily, the wrongdoers are in a wide schism
22:54  And that those who have been given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord, and may believe therein, and that their heart may surrender humbly unto Him. Verily, Allah surely will guide those who believe into the Straight Way
22:55  But those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt thereof until the Hour (of Judgment) comes on them suddenly, or there comes on them the torment of the Day of Disaster

22:59  Assuredly, He shall make them enter by an entrance that they will love. For, verily, Allah is Knower, Most-forbearing
22:60  That is so. Whoever retaliates with the like of what He has been made to suffer, and shall then be wronged again, Allah shall surely succour him; verily, Allah blots out sins and is constantly Forgiving
22:61  That is because Allah causes the night to pass into day, and causes the day to pass into night, and because Allah is Hearer, Seer
22:62  That is because Allah, He is the Truth (or Reality), and that whereon they call instead of Him is the False, and because Allah, He is the High, the Great
22:63  See you not how Allah sends down water from the sky, and on the morrow the earth is green? Verily, Allah is Subtile, Aware
22:64  Unto Him belongs all that is in the heavens and that is in the earth; verily, Allah is the Absolute, the Owner of all Praise
22:65  Have you not seen that Allah has subjected for you all that is in the earth, and the ship that runs on in the sea at His bidding, and He holds back the sky from falling on the earth save at His bidding? Verily, Allah to mankind is Gracious, Merciful
22:66  He it is who quickens you, then makes you die, then will He quicken you again; verily, man is indeed ungrateful
22:67  Unto every nation have We given sacred rites which they are to perform; so let them not then dispute about the matter, but summon you unto your Lord; verily, you (Muhammad) indeed follow right guidance
22:68  But if they wrangle with you, say, "Allah best knows what you do
22:69  "Allah shall judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein you differ

22:73  O mankind! A similitude is coined for you, so pay heed to it. Verily, those on whom you call beside Allah could never create a fly even if they combine together to do it. And if the fly should snatch something from them they could not rescue it from it.
22:74  They do not value Allah at His true value; verily, Allah is Powerful, Mighty
22:75  Allah chooses from the angels messengers, and also from mankind; verily, Allah is Hearer and Seer
22:76  He knows what is before them and what is behind them; and unto Allah all things return
22:77  O you who believe! Bow down and prostrate yourselves (in obeisance), and serve your Lord, and do good, that per chance (or possibly) you may prosper
22:78  And strive in the cause of Allah, with the effort which is His due. He has chosen you, and has not laid upon you any hardship (or hindrance) in religion - the faith of your father Abraham. He has named you Muslims of old and in this (Scripture), that the
