Quotes from The Qu’ran
- And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honor.
- And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say : “My Lord ! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small.”
- Your Lord knows best what is in your inner-selves. If you are righteous, then, verily, he is Ever Most Forgiving to those who turn unto Him again and again in obedience, and in repentance.
- And follow not ( i.e., say not, or do not witness not, etc.) that of which you have no knowledge ( e.g. to say, “I have heard ..”, or, “I have seen ..”, while in fact he has not heard or seen). Verily ! hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each one of you will be questioned ( by Allah.)
- And walk not on the earth with conceit and arrogance. Verily, you can neither rend nor penetrate the earth, nor can you attain the stature like the mountains in height.
- All the bad aspect of these ( the above mentioned things) are hateful to your Lord.
- This is (part) of the al-hikmah ( wisdom, good manners, and high character, etc.) which your Lord inspired to you. And set not up with Allah any other god lest you should be thrown into Hell, blameworthy and rejected ( from His Mercy.)
