Men, if you are in doubt about the Resurrection, remember that We first created you from dust, then from a life-germ, then from a clot, and then from a lump of flesh partly formed and partly unformed, so that We might manifest to you (Our power).
We cause to remain in the wombs whatever We please for an appointed term, and then We bring you forth as infants, that you may grow up and reach your prime. Some of you die (young), and some live on to abject old age when all that they once knew they shall know no more.

Believe then in Allah and His Apostle and in the light which We have revealed. Allah has knowledge of all your actions.
The day on which He will assemble you, the day on which you shall all be gathered - that shall be a day of mutual loss and gain. Those who believe in Allah and do what is right shall be forgiven their sins and admitted to gardens watered by running streams, where they shall dwell for ever.
That is the supreme triumph.

Sura: 64, Ayat: 8-9.

0 believers, guard yourselves and guard your kindred against the Fire which has fuel of men and stones, whose keepers are fierce and mighty angels who never disobey Allah's command and promptly do His bidding.
They will say to the unbelievers: 'Make no excuses for yourselves this day. You shall be rewarded according to your deeds.'

Sura: 66, Ayat: 6-7.

Surely the righteous have gardens of bliss with their Lord. Are We to deal with the true believers as We deal with the wrongdoers? What has come over you? How do you judge?

Sura: 68, Ayat: 34-36.

Each soul is held in pledge for what it earns, except those of the right hand.
These will in their gardens ask the sinners: 'What has brought you into Hell?'
They will reply: 'We never prayed or fed the hungry. We engaged in vain disputes and denied the Day of Reckoning till the inevitable (death) overtook us.'

Sura: 74, Ayat: 38-47.

The righteous surely shall dwell in bliss. But the wicked surely shall burn in Hell.

Sura: 82, Ayat: 13-14.

But the record of righteous shall be in Illiyin. Would that you know what Il-liyin is! It is a sealed book, seen only by those who are closest to Allah.
The righteous shall surely dwell in bliss. Reclining upon soft couches they will look around them: and in their faces you shall mark the glow of joy. They shall be given to drink of a pure wine, securely sealed, whose very dregs are musk; for this let all men emulously strive; a wine tempered with Tasnim, a spring at which the favoured will refresh themselves.
The evildoers used to scoff at the faithful and wink at one another as they pass by them. When they return to their own folk they speak of them with jests and when they see them they say: 'These are erring men!' Yet they were not sent to be their guardians.
But on that day the faithful will mock the unbelievers as they recline upon their couches and gaze around them.
Shall (not) the unbelievers be rewarded according to their deeds?

Sura: 83, Ayat: 18-36.

Save those who embrace the true faith and do good works; for theirs is an unfailing recompense.

Sura: 84, Ayat: 25.

What, then, can after this make you deny the Last Judgement? Is Allah not the best of judges?

Sura: 95, Ayat: 7-8.

When the earth is shaken in her last convulsion; when the earth brings forth its burdens and man asks 'What may this mean?' - on that day it will proclaim its tidings, for your Lord will have inspired it.
On that day mankind will come in broken bands to be shown their labours.
Whoever does an atom's weight of good shall see it, and whoever does an atom's weight of evil shall see it also.

Sura: 99, Ayat: 1-8.

You are distracted by worldly gain until you visit the graves.
But no, you shall know. Again no, you shall know. Indeed, if you knew the truth with certainty, you would see the fire of Hell: you would see it with your very eyes.
On that day, you shall be questioned about the pleasures (you indulged in).

Sura: 102, Ayat: 1-8.

Thus Allah exhorts you, that you may discern.
Do not touch the property of orphans, but strive to improve their lot until they reach maturity. Give just weight and full measure; We never charge a soul with more than it can bear. Speak for justice, even if it affects your own kinsmen. Be true to the covenant of Allah. Thus He exhorts you, so that you may take heed.
This path of Mine is straight. Follow it and do not follow other paths, for they will lead you away from Him. Thus Allah commands you, so that you may guard yourselves against evil.

Yet he has led many of you astray.
Had you no sense?

Sura: 36, Ayat: 60-62.
