Believe in Allah and in His Messenger and expend of what He has entrusted to you. A great reward awaits those of you who believe and spend their wealth. How is it that you do not believe in Allah when the Messenger calls you to believe in your Lord and although he has taken a covenant from you, if indeed you are believers?
The unbelievers think that they will not be raised to life. Say to them: "Yes, by my Lord, you will surely be raised to life, and you will certainly be fully informed of all that you did. That is easy enough for Allah." So believe in Allah and in His Messenger and in the Light that We have sent down. Allah is fully aware of what you do. (You will come to know that) when He will assemble you on the Day of Gathering. That will be the Day (to determine) mutual gains and losses. Whoever believes in Allah and acts righteously, Allah will remove his evil deeds and will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow. Therein they will abide forever. That is the supreme triumph. As for those who disbelieved and gave the lie to Our Signs: they will be the inmates of the Fire, and will abide in it. That is a woeful resort!
Rest assured that whosoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, and performs good deeds, he will have his reward with his Lord and he will have no cause for fear and grief.
It is no virtue that you turn your faces towards the east or the west, but virtue is that one should sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day and the Angels and the Book and the Prophets and, out of His love, spend of one's choice wealth for relatives and orphans, for the needy and the wayfarer, for beggars and for the ransom of slaves, and establish the Salat and pay the Zakat. And the virtuous are those who keep their pledges when they make them and show fortitude in hardships and adversity and in the conflict between the Truth and falsehood; such are the truthful people and such are the pious.
Say to them, "Nothing (good or bad) befalls us except that which Allah has destined for us: Allah is our Guardian and the Believers should put their trust in Him alone."
(O Prophet!) Say: 'We believe in Allah and what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and to Issac and Jacob and his descendents, and the teachings which Allah gave to Moses and Jesus and to other Prophets. We make no distinction between any of them and to Him do we submit. And whoever seeks a way other than Islam (the way of submission), will find that it will not be accepted from him and in the Life to come he will be among the losers.
[Say, O Muhammad]: 'O men! I am Allah's Messenger to you all - of Him to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no god but He. He grants life and deals death. Have faith then, in Allah and in His Messenger , the Prophet - who can neither read nor write - who believes in Allah and His words; and follow him so that you may be guided aright. '
Believers, have fear of Allah and believe in His Messenger, and He will grant you a two-fold portion of His Mercy, and will appoint for you a light whereby you shall walk; and He will forgive you. Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Compassionate.
(O Prophet), We have sent you forth as a witness, as a bearer of good news, and as a warner so that (O People!) you may all believe in Allah and His Messenger, and support him, and honor him, and celebrate Allah's glory, morning and evening.
As for those who do not believe in Allah and His Messenger, for such unbelievers We have prepared a Blazing Fire.
The Jews say, "Become Jews and you will be rightly guided"; the Christians say, "Become Christians and you will have the true guidance." Say to them, "Nay, we turn away from every other way and accept the way of Abraham, and Abraham did not associate other gods with Allah." O Muslims, say to them, "We believe in Allah and the Guidance which has been sent down to us and which was sent to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac and Jacob and his descendants and which was given by their Lord to Moses and Jesus and to all other Prophets. We do not discriminate against any of them and we have completely surrendered to Allah as Muslims. "
Those among them who are firmly rooted in knowledge and the believers, such do believe in what has been revealed to you and what was revealed before you. (Those who truly believe) establish the Prayer and pay Zakah, those who firmly believe in Allah and in the Last Day, to them We shall indeed pay a great reward.
Alif. Lam. Mim. This is the Book of Allah: there is no doubt about it. It is guidance to Godfearing people, who believe in the unseen , establish the Salats and expend (in Our way) out of what We have bestowed on them; who believe in the Book We have sent down to you (i.e. the Qur'an) and in the Books sent down before you, and firmly believe in the Hereafter. Such people are on the right way from their Lord and such are truly successful.
From among His servants, it is only those, who have knowledge, fear Allah. Verily Allah is Most Mighty, Most Forgiving.
Believers! Believe in Allah and His Messenger and in the Book He has revealed to His Messenger, and in every Book He revealed before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah, in His angels, in His Books, in His Messengers and in the Last Day, has indeed strayed far away.
