References for Blog Post of February 2022: Consequence

Every person will meet the consequence of their own deeds. (Al Muddathir:38)

But you will not find Allah changing His system (of consequences) nor substituting it (for the sake of any people). (Fatir:43)

If Allah were to hasten the affliction for human beings (in consequence of their actions), as they want the good to be hastened, their (grace period) would have expired (and they would have been brought to justice right away). But We leave those who do not expect to face Us to wander blindly in their rebellion and defiance. (Yunus:11)

Renounce sin outwardly and inwardly. Surely, those who commit sin will receive the consequences for what they committed. (Al An’am:120)

Tell them, “Shall I seek a lord other than Allah, while He is the Rab [Lord] of all things? Every person will bear only the consequence of what they do, and no one carrying a load will bear the burden of another. Then to your Rab you will return, and He will tell you about that in which you differed. (Al An’am:164)

And whomever Allah guides, no one can lead astray. Is not Allah the Mighty Establisher of consequences? (Al Zumar:37)

If you are wounded and hurt, (know that the unbelievers) have similarly been wounded and hurt. Such are the natural consequences (both favorable and unfavorable) that We have ordained for human beings, alternating to the end, so that Allah may confirm the believers, and that He may choose witnesses from among you. Surely, Allah does not love the wrongdoers. (Aal-e Imran:140)

And do not be like those who forgot Allah. The consequence of this is that they forgot themselves. Such are the persistently disobedient ones. (Al Hashr:19)

Allah does not load a person with more than they can carry. Everyone will get whatever good they earn and whatever bad they earn. “Our Rab, please do not take us to task if we forget or make mistakes. Our Rab, please do not lay on us such a burden as You did on those before us. Our Rab, please do not lay on us (burdens) that we do not have the strength to carry. Forgive us, absolve us and tolerate us, and have mercy and be kind to us. You are our Mawla [Protecting Master], so give us victory over the community of kafirin [unbelievers].” (Al Baqara:286)

Whatever good you have sent ahead for yourselves, surely you will find it with Allah — in fact, better and greater in compensation. (Al Muzammil:20)

Whoever does right, whether male or female, and is a mu’min [believer], then surely, We will revive them with a good life, and We will pay them compensation according to the best of what they did. (Al Nahl:97)

He has also made to be of service to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth; all of it is from Him. Now surely, in all this are messages for people who contemplate. (Al Jathiyah:13)

Have they not contemplated their own selves (and their creation)? Allah created the universes and the earth and what is between them only with haqq, just right, and for an appointed term. Truly, many human beings are in denial about facing their Rab [Lord]. (Al Rum:8)

The mulk of the universes and the earth belongs to Allah. Allah is able to do all things. Surely, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and in the difference of night and day are signs (from Allah) for ulul albab. Such are those who do zikr of Allah standing, and sitting and reclining, and contemplate the creation of the heavens and the earth, and say, “Our Rab, You did not create all this for nothing! Glory be to You! Please protect us from the torment of the Fire. (Aal-e Imran:189-191)

Do they never contemplate the Qur’an? Were it from anyone other than Allah, they would have found in it many incongruities. (Al Nisa:82)

And Allah will provide for them (man or woman) from directions they had not anticipated, and whoever refers their affairs to Allah, He will be sufficient for them. Surely, Allah achieves the fulfillment of His purpose. Allah has already appointed a qadr [measure; formula; laws and regulations] for everything. (Al Talaq:3)

(We sent) messengers bringing good news and giving warnings, with the purpose that humans should have no claim against Allah (that He had not communicated with them) after the coming of the messengers. Know that Allah is Aziz [Most Revered] and Hakim [Wise]. (Al Nisa:165)

“Then, what is your assumption about the Lord of the worlds?” (Al Saffat:87)

You could not hide yourselves to keep your hearing, your seeing and your skins from testifying against you, and you even assumed that Allah did not know much of what you did. And the assumptions that you had about your Rab have ruined you, and now you find yourselves among those whose expectations have been utterly crushed. (Fussilat:22-23)

References for Blog Post of May 2022: Enjoy Allah

O you who believe, strong drinks (intoxicants), and games of chance (for gambling purposes), and idols, and fortune-telling arrows are only the abomination of the handiwork of Satan. Keep away from them so that you may be among those who reach salvation. Satan only looks to cause enmity and hatred among you through intoxicants and gambling. He wants to turn you away from zikr [remembrance] of Allah and salat. So will you be among those who abstain? Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and take heed! But if you turn away, you should know that the duty of Our Messenger is only to pass the message clearly. (Al Ma’ida:90-92)

Whoever is blind (to the truth) in this world will be blind (to the truth) in the Hereafter, and they will be further away from the (true) path. (Al Isra:72)

Insights (into the truth) have been given to you from your Rab. So whoever chooses to see, it is for the good of their own self. And whoever chooses to be blind, does so to their own detriment. And (tell them), “I am not a keeper over you.” (Al An’am:104)

Have they not traveled through the earth so that they may have hearts with which to feel and understand and ears with which to listen? Certainly, it is not the eyes that are blind, but it is the hearts within the sudur [chests] that grow blind. (Al Haj:46)

It is for every dependent who looks for Allah, and acknowledges Him again and again with repentance, and protects this state, the ones who show awe of and respect to Al Rahman in secret (not to show off ) with a penitent heart. “Enter it in peace. This is the Everlasting Period.” (Qaf:32-34)

And Allah has attuned the hearts (of the mu’minin). Even if you had spent all that is on earth, you could not have attuned their hearts. But Allah has brought them together. Surely, He is Aziz [Revered] and Hakim [Wise]. (Al Anfal:63)

Has not the time come for those who believe to submit their hearts in awe and respect with the zikr [repeated remembrance with contemplation] of Allah, and to submit to the truth that has been revealed, so that they will not be like the people who were given the Scripture before? (Al Hadid:16)

Those who (turn to Allah) have believed, and their hearts find contentment and tranquility in the zikr [repeated remembrance with contemplation] of Allah. Most certainly, it is in the zikr of Allah that hearts find contentment and tranquility. (Al Ra’d:28)

Such is (Allah’s commandment)! Whoever honors and upholds the rituals that Allah has ordained, it is certainly from the taqwa [devotion and purity] of hearts. (Al Haj:32)

(Al Haj:34-35)

Surely, those who humbly soften their voices in the presence of the Messenger of Allah are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for taqwa. Theirs will be absolution and a vast reward. (Al Hujurat:3)

The nomadic Arabs say, “We believe.” Say to them (O Muhammad), “You do not believe; rather, you should say, ‘We accept Allah’s terms,’ because iman has not yet entered into your hearts, and if you obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not devalue your deeds in any way. You should know that Allah is Ghafur [Absolving] and Rahim [Full of Mercy].” The mu’minun are only those who believe in Allah and His Messenger, and after that do not doubt. Instead they strive with their wealth, possessions and lives for the cause of Allah. Such are true to their word. (Al Hujurat:14-15)

It is He Who sends down tranquility into the hearts of the mu’minin [believers] so that they might increase their iman [certainty of conviction and connection to Allah]. To Allah belong the keepers of the universes and the earth, and know that Allah is Alim [All-Knowing] and Hakim [Wise], (Al Fath:4)

Truly, Allah was well pleased with the mu’minin when they swore allegiance [bay’at] to you (O Muhammad) beneath the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down on them tranquility, and He has rewarded them with an imminent victory (Al Fath:18)

But (the Qur’an contains) ayats that are self-evident in the hearts of those who are on the path of knowledge and science, and none but the wrongdoers reject Our ayats. (Al Ankabut:49)
