    THE BELIEVERS
    Posted on Friday, November 18 @ 21:56:48 EST by admin

    Principles and fundaments 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. (Qur'an, 49:15)

    THEY FEAR ALLAH ALONE

    Those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord. (Qur'an, 70:27)

    You who believe! Have fear of Allah the way He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims. (Qur'an, 3:102)

    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)

    You can only warn those who act on the Reminder (the Qur'an) and fear the All-Merciful in the Unseen. Give them the good news of forgiveness and a generous reward. (Qur'an, 36:11)

    So have fear of Allah, as much as you are able to, and listen and obey and spend for your own benefit. It is the people who are safe-guarded from the avarice of their own selves who are successful. (Qur'an, 64:16)

    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. (Qur'an, 8:2)


    THEY WORSHIP ALLAH ALONE

    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. (Qur'an, 10:104)

    We have sent down the Book to you with truth. So worship Allah, making your religion sincerely His. Indeed is the sincere religion not Allah's alone? If people take protectors besides Him-'We only worship them so that they may bring us nearer to Allah'- Allah will judge between them regarding the things about which they differed. Allah does not guide anyone who is an ungrateful liar. (Qur'an, 39:2-3)

    My servants, you who believe, My earth is wide, so worship Me alone! (Qur'an, 29:56)


    THEY ESTEEM ALLAH ABOVE ALL THINGS

    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.' (Qur'an, 3:173)

    Some people set up equals to Allah, loving them as they should love Allah. But those who believe have greater love for Allah. If only you could see those who do wrong at the time when they see the punishment, and that truly all strength belongs to Allah, and that Allah is severe in punishment. (Qur'an, 2:165)

    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 favour of Allah which He gives to whoever He wills. Allah is Boundless, All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 5:54)

    We responded to him and gave him Yahya, restoring for him his wife's fertility. They outdid one another in good actions, calling out to Us in yearning and in awe, and humbling themselves to Us. (Qur'an, 21:90)

    (There are man who are) not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of Allah and the performance of prayer and the giving of alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil. (Qur'an, 24:37)


    THEY SEEK NO OTHER GOD THAN ALLAH

    It has been revealed to you and those before you: 'If you associate others with Allah, your actions will come to nothing and you will be among the losers.' No! Worship Allah and be among the thankful. They do not measure Allah with His true measure. The whole earth will be a mere handful for Him on the Day of Rising the heavens folded up in His right hand. Glory be to Him! He is exalted above the partners they ascribe! (Qur'an, 39:65-67)

    Do not call on any other god along with Allah. There is no god but Him. All things are passing except His Face. Judgement belongs to Him. You will be returned to Him. (Qur'an, 28:88)

    Allah does not forgive anything being associated with Him but He forgives whoever He wills for anything other than that. Anyone who associates something with Allah has committed a terrible crime. (Qur'an, 4:48)

    Those (prophets) who conveyed Allah's Message and had fear of Him, fearing no one except Allah. Allah suffices as a Reckoner. (Qur'an, 33:39)

    That was only satan who intimidated his adherents. But do not fear them-fear Me if you are believers. (Qur'an, 3:175)

    Say, 'People of the Book! Come to a proposition which is the same for us and you - that we should worship none but Allah and not associate any partners with Him and not take one another as lords besides Allah.' If they turn away, say, 'Bear witness that we are Muslims.' (Qur'an, 3:64)

    Say: 'What thing is greatest as a witness?' Say: 'Allah. He is Witness between me and you. This Qur'an has been revealed to me so that I may warn you by it, and anyone else it reaches. Do you then bear witness that there are other gods together with Allah?' Say: 'I do not bear witness.' Say: 'He is only One God, and I am free of all you associate with Him.' (Qur'an, 6:19)

    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.' Any who do not believe after that, such people are deviators. (Qur'an, 24:55)


    Those who say that the Messiah, son of Maryam, is Allah are unbelievers. The Messiah said, 'Tribe of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. If anyone associates anything with Allah, Allah has forbidden him the Garden and his refuge will be the Fire.' The wrongdoers will have no helpers. (Qur'an, 5:72)

    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. (Qur'an, 4:146)

    Say: 'I am only a human being like yourselves. It is revealed to me that your god is One God. So let him who hopes to meet his Lord act rightly and not associate anyone in the worship of his Lord.' (Qur'an, 18:110)

    So set your face firmly towards the Religion, as a pure natural believer, Allah's natural pattern on which He made mankind. There is no changing Allah's creation. That is the true Religion - but most people do not know it. (Qur'an, 30:30)


    THEY DO NOT FOLLOW THEIR FATHERS BLINDLY

    Similarly We never sent any warner before you to any city without the affluent among them saying, 'We found our fathers following a religion and we are simply following in their footsteps.' (Qur'an, 43:23)

    When they are told: 'Follow what Allah has sent down,' they say, 'No, we will follow what we found our fathers doing.' What! Even if satan is calling them to the punishment of the Blazing Fire? (Qur'an, 31:21)

    So be in no doubt about what these people worship. They only worship as their forebears worshipped previously. We will pay them their portion in full, with no rebate! (Qur'an, 11:109)

    When they are told, 'Come to what Allah has sent down and to the Messenger,' they say, 'What we found our fathers doing is enough for us.' What! Even if their fathers did not know anything and were not guided! (Qur'an, 5:104)


    THEY BELIEVE WITH CERTAINTY

    The judgement concerning anything you differ about is Allah's concern. That is Allah, my Lord -I have put my trust in Him and to Him I turn. (Qur'an, 42:10)

    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. (Qur'an, 49:15)

    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. (Qur'an, 5:83)


    THEY BELIEVE IN THE UNSEEN

    Those who believe in the Unseen and perform prayer and spend from what We have provided for them. (Qur'an, 2:3)

    Those who fear their Lord in the Unseen and are apprehensive about the Hour. (Qur'an, 21:49)

    You can only warn those who act on the Reminder (the Qur'an) and fear the All-Merciful in the Unseen. Give them the good news of forgiveness and a generous reward. (Qur'an, 36:11)

    Those who fear their Lord in the Unseen will have forgiveness and an immense reward. (Qur'an, 67:12)


    THEY KNOW THAT ALL THINGS ARE FROM ALLAH

    But you will not will unless Allah wills, the Lord of all the Worlds. (Qur'an, 81:29)

    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.' (Qur'an, 9:51)

    Say: 'I possess no power to harm or help myself except as Allah wills. Every nation has an appointed time. When their appointed time comes, they cannot delay it a single hour or bring it forward.' (Qur'an, 10:49)

    Never say about anything, 'I am doing that tomorrow,' without adding 'If Allah wills.' Remember your Lord when you forget, and say, 'Hopefully my Lord will guide me to something closer to right guidance than this.' (Qur'an, 18:23-24)

    No misfortune occurs except by Allah's permission. Whoever believes in Allah-He will guide his heart. Allah has knowledge of all things. (Qur'an, 64:11)

    You did not kill them; it was Allah Who killed them; and you did not throw, when you threw; it was Allah Who threw: so He might test the believers with this excellent trial from Him. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 8:17)

    Nothing occurs, either in the earth or in yourselves, without its being in a Book before We make it happen. That is something easy for Allah. (Qur'an, 57:22)


    THEIR TRUE INTENTION IS THE PLEASURE OF ALLAH

    So they returned with blessings and bounty from Allah and no evil touched them. They pursued the pleasure of Allah. Allah's favour is indeed immense. (Qur'an, 3:174)

    There is no good in much of their secret talk, except in the case of those who enjoin charity, or what is right, or putting things right between people. If anyone does that, seeking the pleasure of Allah, We will give him an immense reward. (Qur'an, 4:114)

    (Those) desiring only the Face of their Lord Most High. They will certainly be satisfied. (Qur'an, 92:20-21)

    Those who are steadfast in seeking the face of their Lord, and perform prayer and give from the provision We have given them, secretly and openly, and stave off evil with good, it is they who will have the Ultimate Abode. (Qur'an, 13:22)

    Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own whims and desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds. (Qur'an, 18:28)

    Give relatives their due, and the poor and travellers. That is best for those who seek the pleasure of Allah. They are the ones who are successful. (Qur'an, 30:38)

    Who is better: someone who founds his building on fear of Allah and His good pleasure, or someone who founds his building on the brink of a crumbling precipice so that it collapses with him into the Fire of Hell? Allah does not love wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 9:109)

    You are not responsible for their guidance, but Allah guides whoever He wills. 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. You will not be wronged. (Qur'an, 2:272)

    You who believe! Do not profane the sacred rites of Allah or the sacred months, or the sacrificial animals, or the ritual garlands, or those heading for the Sacred House, desiring profit and good pleasure from their Lord. When you have come out of pilgrim dress, then you may hunt. Do not let hatred for a people who debar you from the Masjid al-Haram incite you into going beyond the limits. Help each other to goodness and heedfulness. Do not help each other to wrongdoing and enmity. Have fear of Allah. Allah is severe in retribution. (Qur'an, 5:2)

    Is someone who pursues the pleasure of Allah the same as someone who incurs displeasure from Allah and whose refuge is Hell? What an evil destination! (Qur'an, 3:162)

    By it, Allah guides those who follow what pleases Him to the ways of Peace. He will bring them from the darkness to the light by His permission, and guide them to a straight path. (Qur'an, 5:16)

    And among the people there are some who give up everything, desiring the good pleasure of Allah. Allah is Ever-Gentle with His servants. (Qur'an, 2:207)

    Say, 'Shall I tell you of something better than that?' Those who guard against evil will have Gardens with their Lord, with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever, and purified wives, and the Pleasure of Allah. Allah sees His servants. (Qur'an, 3:15)

    The metaphor of those who spend their wealth, desiring the pleasure of Allah and firmness for themselves, is that of a garden on a hillside. When heavy rain falls on it, it doubles its produce; and if heavy rain does not fall, there is dew. Allah sees what you do. (Qur'an, 2:265)

    Do not chase away those who call on their Lord morning and evening, seeking His Face. Their reckoning is in no way your responsibility and your reckoning is in no way their responsibility. Indeed if you did chase them away, you would be among the wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 6:52)

    "We feed you only out of desire for the Face of Allah. We do not want any repayment from you or any thanks." (Qur'an, 76:9)


    THEY LIVE THEIR ENTIRE LIVES FOR THE PLEASURE OF ALLAH ALONE

    "We feed you only out of desire for the Face of Allah. We do not want any repayment from you or any thanks." (Qur'an, 76:9)

    Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own whims and desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds. (Qur'an, 18:28)


    THEY PRESERVE THE LIMITS OF ALLAH

    You who believe! Do not make forbidden the good things Allah has made lawful for you, and do not overstep the limits. Allah does not love people who overstep the limits. (Qur'an, 5:87)

    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. (Qur'an, 9:112)

    Call on your Lord humbly and secretly. He does not love those who overstep the limits. (Qur'an, 7:55)

    Divorce can be pronounced two times; in which case wives may be retained with correctness and courtesy or released with good will. It is not lawful for you to keep anything you have given them unless a couple fear that they will not remain within Allah's limits. If you fear that they will not remain within Allah's limits, there is nothing wrong in the wife ransoming herself with some of what she received. These are Allah's limits, so do not overstep them. Those who overstep Allah's limits are wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 2:229)


    THEY ARE AWARE OF THEIR HELPLESSNESS BEFORE HIM

    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.' (Qur'an, 7:23)

    Allah does not impose on any self any more than it can stand. For it is what it has earned; against it, what it has merited. 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 unbelievers. (Qur'an, 2:286)

    Say: 'No one can protect me from Allah and I will never find any refuge apart from Him. (Qur'an, 72:22)

    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.' (Qur'an, 7:188)


    THEY ARE SINCERELY SUBSERVIENT TO THE REVELATION OF ALLAH

    Ibrahim was forbearing, compassionate, penitent. (Qur'an, 11:75)

    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. (Qur'an, 11:23)

    Who could have a better religion than someone who submits himself completely to Allah and is a good-doer, and follows the religion of Ibrahim, a man of pure natural belief? Allah took Ibrahim as an intimate friend. (Qur'an, 4:125)

    Turning towards Him. Have fear of Him and perform prayer. Do not be among the idolaters. (Qur'an, 30:31)

    The steadfast, the truthful, the obedient, the givers, and those who seek forgiveness before dawn. (Qur'an, 3:17)

    Whose hearts quake at the mention of Allah, and who are steadfast in the face of all that happens to them, those who perform prayer and give of what We have provided for them. (Qur'an, 22:35)

    Those who submit themselves completely to Allah and do good have grasped the Firmest Handhold. The end result of all affairs is with Allah. (Qur'an, 31:22)

    Not so! All who submit themselves completely to Allah and are good-doers will find their reward with their Lord. They will feel no fear and will know no sorrow. (Qur'an, 2:112) 


    THEY PUT THEIR TRUST IN ALLAH

    O Prophet! Allah is enough for you, and for the believers who follow you. (Qur'an, 8:64)

    He (Ya'qub) said, 'My sons! You must not enter through a single gate. Go in through different gates. But I cannot save you from Allah at all, for judgement comes from no one but Allah. In Him I put my trust, and let all those who put their trust, put it in Him alone.' (Qur'an, 12:67)

    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.' (Qur'an, 3:173)

    Those who are steadfast and put their trust in their Lord. (Qur'an, 16:42)

    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.' (Qur'an, 14:12)

    Put your trust in the Living who does not die and glorify Him with praise. He is well aware of the wrong actions of His servants: (Qur'an, 25:58)

    Those who are steadfast and put their trust in their Lord. (Qur'an, 29:59)

    Do not obey the unbelievers and hypocrites and disregard their abuse of you. Put your trust in Allah. Allah suffices as a Protector. (Qur'an, 33:48)

    They have the word, 'Obedience!' on their tongues but when they leave your presence, a group of them spend the night plotting to do other than what you say. Allah is recording their nocturnal plotting. So let them be and put your trust in Allah. Allah suffices as a Guardian. (Qur'an, 4:81)

    If an evil impulse from satan provokes you, seek refuge in Allah. He is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (Qur'an, 7:200)

    You who believe! Remember Allah's blessing to you when certain people were on the verge of raising their hands against you and He held their hands back from you. Have fear of Allah. The believers should put their trust in Allah. (Qur'an, 5:11)

    If Allah helps you, no one can vanquish you. If He forsakes you, who can help you after that? So the believers should put their trust in Allah. (Qur'an, 3:160)

    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.' (Qur'an, 9:129)

    Musa said, 'My people! If you believe in Allah, then put your trust in Him, if you are Muslims.' (Qur'an, 10:84)

    So put your trust in Allah. You are clearly on a path of truth. (Qur'an, 27:79)


    THEY KNOW THAT HELP COMES FROM ALLAH ALONE

    There was a sign for you in the two parties which met face to face, one party fighting in the Way of Allah and the other unbelievers. You saw them as twice their number with your own eyes. Allah reinforces with His help whoever He wills. There is instruction in that for people of insight. (Qur'an, 3:13)

    And remember when two of your clans were on the point of losing heart and Allah was their Protector. Let the believers put their trust in Allah. (Qur'an, 3:122)

    Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful, the King of the Day of Judgement. You alone we worship. You alone we ask for help. (Qur'an, 1:1-4)

    Say: 'My Lord, make my entry sincere and make my leaving sincere and grant me supporting authority direct from Your Presence.' (Qur'an, 17:80)

    Allah does not impose on any self any more than it can stand. For it is what it has earned; against it, what it has merited. 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 unbelievers. (Qur'an, 2:286)

    Musa said to his people, 'Seek help in Allah and be steadfast. The earth belongs to Allah. He bequeathes it to any of His servants He wills. The successful outcome is for those who guard against evil.' (Qur'an, 7:128)

    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.' (Qur'an, 12:18)


    THEY REPEATEDLY REMEMBER ALLAH

    (There are men who are) not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of Allah and the performance of prayer and the giving of alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil. (Qur'an, 24:37)

    Remember your Lord in yourself humbly and fearfully, without loudness of voice, morning and evening. Do not be one of the unaware. (Qur'an, 7:205)

    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. (Qur'an, 3:191)

    Those who believe and whose hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah. Only in the remembrance of Allah can the heart find peace.' (Qur'an, 13:28)

    You who believe! When you meet a troop, stand firm and remember Allah repeatedly so that hopefully you will be successful. (Qur'an, 8:45)

    You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Qur'an, 33:21)

    Recite what has been revealed to you of the Book and perform prayer. Prayer precludes indecency and wrongdoing. And remembrance of Allah is greater still. Allah knows what you do. (Qur'an, 29:45)


    THEY DO NOT TRUST THEIR OWN POWER AND MEANS, BUT ONLY ALLAH

    When Talut marched out with the army, he said, 'Allah will test you with a river. Anyone who drinks from it is not with me. But anyone who does not taste it is with me-except for him who merely scoops up a little in his hand.' But they drank from it-except for a few of them. Then when he and those who believed with him had crossed it, they said, 'We do not have the strength to face Goliath and his troops today.' 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. (Qur'an, 2:249)

    Allah has helped you on many occasions, including the Day of Hunayn when your great numbers delighted you but did not help you in any way, and the earth seemed narrow to you for all its great breadth, and you turned your backs. Then Allah sent down His serenity on His Messenger and on the believers, and sent down troops you could not see, and punished those who did not believe. That is how the unbelievers are repaid. (Qur'an, 9:25-26)


    THEY HOLD FAST TO THE QUR'AN

    And remember the Signs of Allah and the wise words which are recited in your rooms. Allah is All-Pervading, All-Aware. (Qur'an, 33:34)

    So do not obey the unbelievers but use this (the Qur'an) to battle against them with all your might. (Qur'an, 25:52)

    Those to whom We have given the Book, who recite it in the way it should be recited, such people believe in it. As for those who reject it, they are the losers. (Qur'an, 2:121)

    As for those who hold fast to the Book and perform prayer, We will not let the wage of the righteous be wasted. (Qur'an, 7:170)

    This (the Qur'an) is a Book We have sent down and blessed, confirming what came before it, so that you can warn the Mother of Cities (Makka) and the people around it. Those who believe in the hereafter believe in it and safeguard their prayer. (Qur'an, 6:92)

    We have sent down the Book to you with the truth so that you can judge between people according to what Allah has shown to you. But do not be an advocate for the treacherous. (Qur'an, 4:105)

    It is not right for any human being that Allah should give him the Book and Judgement and Prophethood, and then that he should say to people, 'Be worshippers of me rather than Allah.' Rather he will say, 'Be people of the Lord because of your knowledge of the Book and because you study.' (Qur'an, 3:79)

    Abandon those who have turned their religion into a game and a diversion and who have been deluded by the life of this world. Remind by it lest a person is delivered up to destruction for what he has earned with no protector or intercessor besides Allah. Were he to offer every kind of compensation, it would not be accepted from him. Such people are delivered up to destruction for what they have earned. They will have scalding water to drink and a painful punishment because they did not believe. (Qur'an, 6:70)

    Judge between them by what Allah has sent down and do not follow their whims and desires. And beware of them lest they lure you away from some of what Allah has sent down to you. If they turn their backs, then know that Allah wants to afflict them with some of their wrong actions. Many of mankind are deviators. (Qur'an, 5:49)

    Is it not enough for them that We have sent down to you the Book which is recited to them? There is certainly a mercy and reminder in that for people who believe. (Qur'an, 29:51)

    Those who, when they are reminded of the Signs of their Lord, do not turn their backs, deaf and blind to them; (Qur'an, 25:73)


    THE QUR'AN INCREASES THEIR FAITH AND THEIR FEAR OF ALLAH

    Those are some of the Prophets Allah has blessed, from the descendants of Adam and from those We carried with Nuh, and from the descendants of Ibrahim and Isra'il and from those We guided and chose. When the Signs of the All-Merciful were recited to them they fell on their faces, weeping, in prostration. (Qur'an, 19:58)

    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. (Qur'an, 17:107-109)

    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; (Qur'an, 8:2)

    Allah has sent down the Supreme Discourse, a Book consistent in its frequent repetitions. The skins of those who fear their Lord tremble at it and then their skins and hearts yield softly to the remembrance of Allah. That is Allah's guidance by which He guides whoever He wills. And no one can guide those whom Allah misguides. (Qur'an, 39:23)

    Whose hearts quake at the mention of Allah, and who are steadfast in the face of all that happens to them, those who perform prayer and give of what We have provided for them. (Qur'an, 22:35)


    THEY NEVER DISPLAY INGRATITUDE TOWARDS ALLAH

    He who possessed knowledge of the Book said, 'I will bring it to you before your glance returns to you.' And when he (Sulayman) saw it standing firmly in his presence, he said, 'This is part of my Lord's favour 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.' (Qur'an, 27:40)


    THEY BELIEVE IN THE DAY OF RESURRECTION WITH CERTAINTY

    Those who fear their Lord in the Unseen and are apprehensive about the Hour. (Qur'an, 21:49)

    Accordingly We have revealed to you an Arabic Qur'an so that you may warn the Mother of Cities (people of Makka) and those around it, and give warning of the Day of Gathering about which there is no doubt: one group in the Garden, the other in the Blazing Fire. (Qur'an, 42:7)


    THEY FEAR THE DAY OF RESURRECTION

    (There are men who are) not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of Allah and the performance of prayer and the giving of alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil - (Qur'an, 24:37)

    They give food, despite their love for it, to the poor and orphans and captives: '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.' (Qur'an, 76:8-10)


    THEY BELIEVE IN THE HEREAFTER WITH CERTAINTY

    Those who believe in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down before you, and are certain about the hereafter. (Qur'an, 2:4)

    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 truer to his contract than Allah? Rejoice then in the bargain you have made. That is the great victory. (Qur'an, 9:111)

    Those who perform prayer and give alms and are certain of the hereafter. (Qur'an, 31:4)

    So let those who sell the life of this world for the hereafter fight in the Way of Allah. If someone fights in the Way of Allah, whether he is killed or is victorious, We will pay him an immense reward. (Qur'an, 4:74)

    Seek the abode of the hereafter with what Allah has given you, without forgetting your portion of this world. And do good as Allah has been good to you. And do not seek to cause corruption in the earth. Allah does not love corrupters.' (Qur'an, 28:77)

    Those who perform prayer and give alms and are certain about the hereafter. (Qur'an, 27:3)

    Indeed we are returning to our Lord!' (Qur'an, 43:14)

    Those who affirm the Day of Judgement, (Qur'an, 70:26)

    We purified their sincerity through sincere remembrance of the Abode. (Qur'an, 38:46)


    THEY DO NOT GROW ATTACHED TO THE LIFE OF THIS WORLD

    Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own whims and desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds. (Qur'an, 18:28)

    Do not let their wealth and children impress you. Allah merely wants to punish them by them during their life in this world and for them to expire while they are unbelievers. (Qur'an, 9:55)

    Do not direct your eyes longingly to what We have given certain of them to enjoy. Do not feel sad concerning them. And take the believers under your wing. (Qur'an, 15:88)

    Do not direct your eyes longingly to what We have given certain of them to enjoy, the flower of the life of this world, so that We can test them by it. Your Lord's provision is better and longer lasting. (Qur'an, 20:131)

    Do not let their wealth and their children impress you. Allah merely wants to punish them by them in this world, and for them to expire while they are unbelievers. (Qur'an, 9:85)

    And what of him the evil of whose actions appears fine to him so that he sees them as good? Allah misguides whoever He wills and guides whoever He wills. So do not let yourself waste away out of regret for them. Allah knows what they do. (Qur'an, 35:8)

    You who believe! Do not let your wealth or children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. Whoever does that is lost. (Qur'an, 63:9)


    THEY LOOK TOWARDS THE HEREAFTER

    You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Qur'an, 33:21)

    So let those who sell the life of this world for the hereafter fight in the Way of Allah. If someone fights in the Way of Allah, whether he is killed or is victorious, We will pay him an immense reward. (Qur'an, 4:74)

    We purified their sincerity through sincere remembrance of the Abode. (Qur'an, 38:46)

    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 truer to his contract than Allah? Rejoice then in the bargain you have made. That is the great victory. (Qur'an, 9:111)

    Race each other to forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden as wide as the heavens and the earth, prepared for the people who guard against evil: (Qur'an, 3:133)


    THEY FEEL NO APPREHENSION OF THE FUTURE

    Recite to them the story of Nuh 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. If you turn your backs, I have not asked you for any wage. My wage is the responsibility of Allah alone. I am commanded to be one of the Muslims.' (Qur'an, 10:71-72)

    Satan threatens you with poverty and commands you to avarice. Allah promises you forgiveness from Him and abundance. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 2:268)


    THEY FULLY BELIEVE IN THE PRE-ORDAINED DECREE

    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.' (Qur'an, 9:51)

    Nothing occurs, either in the earth or in yourselves, without its being in a Book before We make it happen. That is so that you will not be grieved about the things that pass you by or exult about the things that come to you. Allah does not love any vain or boastful man: (Qur'an, 57:22-23)


    THEY ARE AWARE THAT THEY OWE THEIR PROPERTIES TO ALLAH

    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.' (Qur'an, 12:101)

    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 said, 'Glory be to You! We have no knowledge except what You have taught us. You are the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.' (Qur'an, 2:31-32)

    He 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 are unbelievers about the world to come. (Qur'an, 12:37)


    THEY REGARD EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO THEM AS GOOD

    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.' (Qur'an, 9:51)


    THEY EARNESTLY OBEY ALLAH, HIS COMMANDS AND HIS MESSENGERS

    When Allah and His Messenger have decided something it is not for any man or woman of the believers to have a choice about it. Anyone who disobeys Allah and His Messenger is clearly misguided. (Qur'an, 33:36)

    But those of you who are obedient to Allah and His Messenger and act rightly will be given their reward twice over; and We have prepared generous provision for them. (Qur'an, 33:31)

    Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and beware! If you turn your backs, know that Our Messenger is only responsible for clear transmission. (Qur'an, 5:92)

    Say, 'If you love Allah, then follow me and Allah will love you and forgive you for your wrong actions. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.' (Qur'an, 3:31)


    THEY FOLLOW THE WAY OF THE PROPHETS AND MESSENGERS

    You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Qur'an, 33:21)

    Or were you present when death came to Ya'qub and he said to his sons, 'What will you worship when I have gone?' They said, 'We will worship your God, the God of your forefathers, Ibrahim, Isma'il and Ishaq-one God. We are Muslims submitted to Him.' (Qur'an, 2:133)

    Say, 'We believe in Allah and what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to Ibrahim and Isma'il and Ishaq and Ya'qub and the Tribes, and what Musa and 'Isa were given, and what all the Prophets were given by their Lord. We do not differentiate between any of them. We are Muslims submitted to Him.' (Qur'an, 2:136)

    I hold fast to the creed of my forebears Ibrahim and Ishaq and Ya'qub. We don't associate anything with Allah. And that is how Allah has favoured us and all mankind, but most do not give thanks. (Qur'an, 12:38)


    THEY FOLLOW THE PRACTICES OF THE PROPHET

    Those who follow the Messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, whom they find written down with them in the Torah and the Gospel, commanding them to do right and forbidding them to do wrong, making good things lawful for them and bad things forbidden for them, relieving them of their heavy loads and the chains which were around them. Those who believe in him and honour him and help him, and follow the Light that has been sent down with him, they are the ones who are successful.' (Qur'an, 7:157)


    THEY ARE NOT INFLUENCED BY SATAN

    If an evil impulse from satan provokes you, seek refuge in Allah. He is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. As for those who guard against evil, when they are bothered by visitors from satan, they remember and immediately see clearly. (Qur'an, 7:200-201)

    He (satan) said, 'My Lord, because You misled me, I will make things on the earth seem good to them and I will mislead them all, every one of them, except Your servants among them who are sincere.' He said, 'This is a Straight Path to Me. You have no authority over any of My servants except for the misled who follow you.' (Qur'an, 15:39-42)

    Whenever you recite the Qur'an, seek refuge with Allah from the accursed satan. He has no authority over those who believe and put their trust in their Lord. (Qur'an, 16:98-99)


    THEY CONSIDER SATAN AND HIS FOLLOWERS AS AN ENEMY

    Satan is your enemy so treat him as an enemy. He summons his party so they will be among the people of the Searing Blaze. (Qur'an, 35:6)

    Do not let satan bar your way. He truly is an outright enemy to you. (Qur'an, 43:62)

    Children of Adam! Do not let satan tempt you into trouble as He expelled your parents from the Garden, stripping them of their covering and disclosing to them their private parts. He and his tribe see you from where you do not see them. We have made the satans friends of those who do not believe. (Qur'an, 7:27)

    You will find that the people most hostile to those who believe are the Jews and the idolaters. You will find the people most affectionate to those who believe are those who say, 'We are Christians.' That is because some of them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant. (Qur'an, 5:82)

    You who believe! Do not take My enemy and your enemy as friends, showing love for them when they have rejected the truth that has come to you, driving out the Messenger and yourselves simply because you believe in Allah your Lord. If you go out to strive in My Way and to seek My pleasure, keeping secret the love you have for them, I know best what you conceal and what you make known. Any of you who do that have strayed from the right way. (Qur'an, 60:1)


    THEY TAKE ONLY ALLAH AND THE BELIEVERS AS THEIR INTIMATES

    Your friend is only Allah and His Messenger and those who believe: those who perform prayer and give alms, and bow. As for those who make Allah their friend, and His Messenger and those who believe: it is the party of Allah who are victorious! (Qur'an, 5:55-56)

    You who believe! Do not take the unbelievers as friends rather than the believers. Do you want to give Allah clear proof against you? (Qur'an, 4:144)

    Or did you suppose that you would be left without Allah knowing those of you who have strived and who have not taken anyone as their intimate friends besides Allah and His Messenger and the believers? Allah is aware of what you do. (Qur'an, 9:16)

    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. Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. Such people are the party of Allah. Truly it is the party of Allah who are successful. (Qur'an, 58:22)

    Allah merely forbids you from taking as friends those who have fought you in the religion and driven you from your homes and who supported your expulsion. Any who take them as friends are wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 60:9)

    Those who do not believe are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way (do not protect each other) there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. (Qur'an, 8:73)

    You who believe! Do not befriend your fathers and brothers if they prefer disbelief to faith. Those among you who do befriend them are wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 9:23)

    You who believe! Do not take any outside yourselves as intimates. They will do anything to harm you. They love what causes you distress. Hatred has appeared out of their mouths, but what their breasts hide is far worse. We have made the Signs clear to you if you use your intellect. (Qur'an, 3:118)


    THEY ARE TOGETHER WITH THE OTHER BELIEVERS

    Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own whims and desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds. (Qur'an, 18:28)

    You who believe! Have fear of Allah and be with the truly sincere. (Qur'an, 9:119)

    But if they try to make you associate something with Me about which you have no knowledge, do not obey them. Keep company with them correctly and courteously in this world but follow the Way of him who turns to Me. Then you will return to Me and I will inform you about the things you did.' (Qur'an, 31:15)

    You who believe! Do not take any outside yourselves as intimates. They will do anything to harm you. They love what causes you distress. Hatred has appeared out of their mouths, but what their breasts hide is far worse. We have made the Signs clear to you if you use your intellect. (Qur'an, 3:118)


    THEY SAFEGUARD THEIR PRAYER

    Safeguard the prayer-especially the middle one. Stand in obedience to Allah. (Qur'an, 2:238)

    Those who perform prayer and give of what We have provided for them. (Qur'an, 8:3)

    It is the believers who are successful: those who are humble in their prayer; (Qur'an, 23:1-2)

    Those who safeguard their prayer: (Qur'an, 23:9)

    (They are) not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of Allah and the performance of prayer and giving alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil. (Qur'an, 24:37)

    Except for those who perform prayer and are constant in it. (Qur'an, 70:22-23)


    THEY WORSHIP AT NIGHT AS WELL

    The part of the night they spent asleep was small and they would seek forgiveness before the dawn. (Qur'an, 51:17-18)


    THEY ASK FORGIVENESS FOR THEIR BAD ACTIONS

    Our Lord, we heard a caller calling us to faith: "Believe in your Lord!" and we believed. Our Lord, forgive us our wrong actions, erase our bad actions from us and take us back to You with those who are truly good. (Qur'an, 3:193)

    Allah does not impose on any self any more than it can stand. For it is what it has earned; against it, what it has merited. 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 unbelievers. (Qur'an, 2:286)

    My Lord! Forgive me and my parents and all who enter my house as believers, and all the men and women of the believers. But do not increase the wrongdoers except in ruin!' (Qur'an, 71:28)

    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. (Qur'an, 3:135)

    (They are) those who say, 'Our Lord, we believe, so forgive us our wrong actions and safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire.' The steadfast, the truthful, the obedient, the givers, and those who seek forgiveness before dawn. (Qur'an, 3:16-17)

    All they said was, 'Our Lord, forgive us our wrong actions and any excesses we went to in what we did and make our feet firm and help us against these disbelieving people.' (Qur'an, 3:147)

    Those who have come after them say, 'Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and do not put any ancour in our hearts towards those who believe. Our Lord, You are All-Gentle, Most Merciful.' (Qur'an, 59:10)

    And they would seek forgiveness before the dawn. (Qur'an, 51:18)


    THEY ASK FORGIVENESS FOR THEIR OWN SINS AND FOR THOSE OF THE BELIEVERS

    Know then that there is no god except Allah and ask forgiveness for your wrongdoing, and for the men and women who believe. Allah knows both your activity and your repose. (Qur'an, 47:19)

    Those who have come after them say, 'Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and do not put any ancour in our hearts towards those who believe. Our Lord, You are All-Gentle, Most Merciful.' (Qur'an, 59:10)



    THEY TRY HARD TO DRAW NEARER TO ALLAH

    You who believe! Have fear of Allah and seek the means of drawing near to Him, and strive in His Way, so that hopefully you will be successful. (Qur'an, 5:35)

    And the Forerunners, the Forerunners. Those are the Ones Brought Near. (Qur'an, 56:10-11)



    THEY ARE THANKFUL TO ALLAH

    You who believe! Eat of the good things We have provided for you and give thanks to Allah if you worship Him alone. (Qur'an, 2:172)

    We gave Luqman wisdom: 'Give thanks to Allah. Whoever gives thanks only does so to his own good. Whoever is ungrateful, Allah is Rich Beyond Need, Praiseworthy.' (Qur'an, 31:12)

    They made for him (Sulayman) anything he wished: high arches and statues, huge dishes like cisterns, great built-in cooking vats. 'Work, family of Dawud, in thankfulness!' But very few of My servants are thankful. (Qur'an, 34:13)

    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)

    Descendants of those We carried with Nuh. He was a grateful servant. (Qur'an, 17:3)

    Allah brought you out of your mothers' wombs knowing nothing at all, and gave you hearing, sight and hearts so that perhaps you would show thanks. (Qur'an, 16:78)

    Why should Allah punish you if you are thankful and believe? Allah is All-Thankful, All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 4:147)

    The two seas are not the same: the one is sweet, refreshing, delicious to drink, the other salty, bitter to the taste. Yet from both of them you eat fresh flesh and extract ornaments for yourselves to wear; and you see ships on them, cleaving through the waves so that you can seek His bounty and so that hopefully you will be thankful. (Qur'an, 35:12)



    THEY DO THEIR BEST IN THE WAY OF ALLAH

    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. (Qur'an, 9:88)

    Those who believe and migrate and strive in the Way of Allah with their wealth and themselves have a higher rank with Allah. They are the ones who are victorious. (Qur'an, 9:20)

    Fight them! Allah will punish them at your hands, and disgrace them and help you against them, and heal the hearts of those who believe. (Qur'an, 9:14)

    You who believe! Shall I direct you to a transaction which will save you from a painful punishment? It is to believe in Allah and His Messenger and strive in the Way of Allah with your wealth and your selves. That is better for you if you only knew. (Qur'an, 61:10-11)

    The believers are only those who have belived 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. (Qur'an, 49:15)

    What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah-for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, 'Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!'? (Qur'an, 4:75)

    Strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in the religion-the religion of your forefather Ibrahim. He named you Muslims before and also in this, so that the Messenger could be witness against you and you could be witnesses against all mankind. So perform prayer and give alms and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protector-the Best Protector, the Best Helper. (Qur'an, 22:78)

    Go out to fight, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and yourselves in the Way of Allah. That is better for you if you only knew. (Qur'an, 9:41)

    Whoever strives does it entirely for himself. Allah is Rich Beyond Need of any being. (Qur'an, 29:6)



    HARDSHIPS NEVER CAUSE THEM TO ABANDON THEIR FAITH

    Those who did good and guard against evil, among those who responded to Allah and the Messenger after the wound had been inflicted will have an immense reward: 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.' (Qur'an, 3:172-173)

    It is not devoutness to turn your faces to the East or to the West. Rather, those with true devoutness are those who believe in Allah and the Last Day, the Angels, the Book and the Prophets, and who, despite their love for it, give away their wealth to their relatives and to orphans and the very poor, and to travellers and beggars and to set slaves free, and who perform prayer and give alms; those who honour their contracts when they make them, and are steadfast in poverty and illness and in battle. Those are the people who are true. They are the people who guard against evil. (Qur'an, 2:177)



    THEY CONVEY ALLAH'S MESSAGE

    He (Nuh) said, 'My Lord, I have called my people night and day but my calling has only made them more evasive. Indeed, every time I called them to Your forgiveness, they put their fingers in their ears, wrapped themselves up in their clothes and were overweeningly arrogant. Then I called them openly. Then I addressed them publicly and addressed them privately. (Qur'an, 71:5-9)

    When their brother Hud said to them, 'Will you not guard against evil? I am a faithful Messenger to you so have fear of Allah and obey me. I do not ask you for any wage for it. My wage is the responsibility of no one but the Lord of all the worlds. (Qur'an, 26:124-127)

    When their brother Nuh said to them, 'Will you not guard against evil? I am a faithful Messenger to you so have fear of Allah and obey me. I do not ask you for any wage for it. My wage is the responsibility of no one but the Lord of all the worlds. So have fear of Allah and obey me.' (Qur'an, 26:106-110)

    (Mine is) only transmitting from Allah and His Messages. As for him who disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he will have the Fire of Hell, remaining in it timelessly, for ever and ever.' (Qur'an, 72:23)



    THEY NEVER WEAKEN IN THEIR FIGHT IN THE WAY OF ALLAH

    Many a Prophet has 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. (Qur'an, 3:146)

    Do not relax in pursuit of the enemy. If you feel pain, they too are feeling it just as you are, but you hope for something from Allah which they cannot hope for. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Qur'an, 4:104)

    So be steadfast. Allah's promise is true. Do not let those who have no certainty make you impatient and shake your firmness. (Qur'an, 30:60)

    Do not give up and do not be downhearted. You shall be uppermost if you are believers. (Qur'an, 3:139)



    THEY MAKE PREPARATIONS FOR FIGHTING IN THE WAY OF ALLAH

    Go out to fight, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and yourselves in the Way of Allah. That is better for you if you only knew. (Qur'an, 9:41)

    Arm yourselves against them with all the firepower and cavalry you can muster, to terrify the enemies of Allah and your enemies, and others besides them whom you do not know. Allah knows them. Anything you spend in the Way of Allah will be repaid to you in full. You will not be wronged. (Qur'an, 8:60)

    If they had really desired to go out, they would have made proper preparations for it, but Allah was averse to their setting out so He held them back and they were told: 'Stay behind with those who stay behind.' (Qur'an, 9:46)

    You who believe! When you go out to fight in the Way of Allah verify things carefully. Do not say, 'You are not a believer', to someone who greets you as a Muslim, simply out of desire for the goods of this world. With Allah there is booty in abundance. That is the way you were before but Allah has been kind to you. So verify things carefully. Allah is aware of what you do. (Qur'an, 4:94)
