In the Name of Allah,
the Compassionate Source of All Mercy Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; the Compassionate Source of All Mercy and Master of the Day of Judgment. We serve You and seek Your help.

The Most Gracious has imparted this Qur'an unto people. He has created people: He has imparted unto each of them articulate thought and speech. At His behest the sun and the moon run their appointed courses; before Him prostrate the stars and the trees. And the skies has He raised high, and has devised for all things a measure, so that you too, O people, might never transgress the measure of what is right: weigh, therefore, your deeds with equity, and cut not the measure short! and the earth has He spread out for all living beings, with fruit thereon, and palm trees with sheathed clusters of dates, and grain growing tall on its stalks, and sweet- smelling plants. Which, then, of your Sustainer's powers can you disavow?

O People! If you are in doubt as to the truth of resurrection,
remember that, verily, We have created every one of you out of dust, then out of a drop of sperm, then out of a germ-cell,
then out of an embryonic lump complete in itself and yet incomplete, so that We might make your origin clear unto you. And whatever We will to be born We cause to rest in the mothers' wombs for a term set by Us, and then We bring you forth as infants and allow you to live so that some of you might attain to maturity; for among you are such as are caused to die in childhood, just as many a one of you is reduced in old age to a most abject state, ceasing to know anything of what he once knew so well. And if, O people, thou art still in doubt as to resurrection, consider this: thou canst see the earth dry and lifeless -- and suddenly, when We send down waters upon it, it stirs and swells and puts forth every kind of lovely plant! All this happens because Allah alone is the Ultimate Truth, and because He alone brings the dead to life, and because He has the power to will anything.
Al-Hajj 22:5-6, tr. Asad

And they will surely answer, "It is Allah." Say, then: "Will you not, then, become fully conscious of Him -- seeing that He is Allah, your Sustainer, the Ultimate Truth? For, after the truth has been forsaken, what is there left but error? How, then can you lose sight of the truth?"

unless it be to an apostle whom He has been pleased to elect therefore: and then He sends forth the forces of heaven to watch over him in whatever lies open before him and in what is beyond his ken -- so as to make manifest that it is indeed but their Sustainer's messages that these apostles deliver:
for it is He who encompasses with His knowledge all that they have to say, just as He takes count, one by one, of everything that exists.
Al-Jinn 72:26-28, tr. Asad
The Creator of the Harmful
If We let man taste some of Our grace and then take it away from him -- behold, he abandons all hope, forgetting all gratitude for Our past favors.
