[Al-Baqarah 2:183] O you who believe, fasting is decreed for you, as it was decreed for those before you, that you may attain salvation. Specific days; if one is ill or traveling, an equal number of other days may be substituted. Those who can fast, but with great difficulty, may substitute feeding one poor person for each day of breaking the fast. If one volunteers (more righteous works), it is better. But fasting is the best for you, if you only knew. Ramadan is the month during which the Quran was revealed, providing guidance for the people, clear teachings, and the statute book. Those of you who witness this month shall fast therein. Those who are ill or traveling may substitute the same number of other days. GOD wishes for you convenience, not hardship, that you may fulfill your obligations, and to glorify GOD for guiding you, and to express your appreciation. When My servants ask you about Me, I am always near. I answer their prayers when they pray to Me. The people shall respond to Me and believe in Me, in order to be guided. Permitted for you is sexual intercourse with your wives during the nights of fasting. They are the keepers of your secrets, and you are the keepers of their secrets. GOD knew that you used to betray your souls, and He has redeemed you, and has pardoned you. Henceforth, you may have intercourse with them, seeking what GOD has permitted for you. You may eat and drink until the white thread of light becomes distinguishable from the dark thread of night at dawn. Then, you shall fast until sunset. Sexual intercourse is prohibited if you decide to retreat to the mosques. These are GOD's laws; you shall not transgress them. GOD thus clarifies His revelations for the people, that they may attain salvation.
[Al-Qadr 97:1 ] Indeed, We sent the Qur'an down during the Night of Decree. And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.
[Al-Ahzab33:35] The submitting men, the submitting women, the believing men, the believing women, the obedient men, the obedient women, the truthful men, the truthful women, the steadfast men, the steadfast women, the reverent men, the reverent women, the charitable men, the charitable women, the fasting men, the fasting women, the chaste men, the chaste women, and the men who commemorate GOD frequently, and the commemorating women, GOD has prepared for them forgiveness and great recompense.
[Al-Baqarah 2:83] We made a covenant with the Children of Israel: "You shall not worship except GOD. You shall honor your parents and regard the relatives, the orphans, and the poor. You shall treat the people good (peaceable). You shall observe the Contact Prayers and give the obligatory charity But you turned away, except a few of you, and you became averse. We made a covenant with you, that you shall not shed your blood, nor shall you evict each other from your homes. You agreed and bore witness.
[Al-Qareah 101:1] The Striking Calamity
Striking Calamity? And what can make you
know what is the Striking
It is the Day when people will be like moths,

good deeds], He will be in a

can make you know what that is? The blazing Hellfire.
(Saul) in Quran:
[Al-Nisa 4:92] No believer shall kill another believer, unless it is an accident. If one kills a believer by accident, he shall atone by freeing a believing slave, and paying a compensation to the victim's family, unless they forfeit such a compensation as a charity. If the victim belonged to people who are at war with you, though he was a believer, you shall atone by freeing a believing slave. If he belonged to people with whom you have signed a peace treaty, you shall pay the compensation in addition to freeing a believing slave. If you cannot find a slave to free, you shall atone by fasting two consecutive months, in order to be redeemed by GOD. GOD is Knower, Most Wise. Anyone who kills a believer on purpose, his retribution is Hell, wherein he abides forever, GOD is angry with him, and condemns him, and has prepared for him a terrible punishment. O you who believe, if you strike in the cause of GOD, you shall be absolutely sure. Do not say to one who offers you peace, "You are not a believer," seeking the spoils of this world. For GOD possesses infinite spoils. Remember that you used to be like them, and GOD blessed you. Therefore, you shall be absolutely sure (before you strike). GOD is fully Cognizant of everything you do.
[Bani Israel 17:33] You shall not kill any person - for GOD has made life sacred - except in the course of justice. If one is killed unjustly, then we give his heir authority to enforce justice. Thus, he shall not exceed the limits in avenging the murder; he will be helped.
[Al-Baqarah 2:246] Have you noted the leaders of Israel after Moses (Musa)? They said to their prophet, "If you appoint a king to lead us, we will fight in the cause of GOD." He said, "Is it your intention that, if fighting is decreed for you, you will not fight?" They said, "Why should we not fight in the cause of GOD, when we have been deprived of our homes, and our children?" Yet, when fighting was decreed for them, they turned away, except a few. GOD is aware of the transgressors. Their prophet said to them, "GOD has appointed Taloot (Saul) to be your king." They said, "How can he have kingship over us when we are more worthy of kingship than he; he is not even rich?" He said, "GOD has chosen him over you, and has blessed him with an abundance in knowledge and in body." GOD grants His kingship to whomever He wills. GOD is Bounteous, Omniscient.
And their prophet said to them, "Indeed, a sign of his kingship is that the chest will come to you in which is assurance from your Lord and a remnant of what the family of Moses (Musa) and the family of Aaron (Haroon) had left, carried by the angels. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers." And when Taloot (Saul) went forth with the soldiers, he said, "Indeed, God will be testing you with a river. So whoever drinks from it is not of me, and whoever does not taste it is indeed of me, excepting one who takes in the hollow of his hand." But they drank from it, except a few of them. Then when he had crossed it along with those who believed with him, they said, "There is no power for us today against Goliath and his soldiers." But those who were certain that they would meet God said, "How many a small company has overcome a large company by permission of God. And God is with the patient." And when they went forth to [face] Goliath and his soldiers, they said, "Our Lord, pour upon us patience and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people." So they defeated them by permission of God, and David (Dawood) killed Goliath, and God gave him the kingship and prophet hood and taught him from that which He willed. And if it were not for God checking people by means of others, the earth would have been corrupted, but God is full of bounty to the worlds.
These are the verses of God which We recite to you, in truth. And indeed, you are from among the messengers. These messengers; we blessed some of them more than others. For example, GOD spoke to one (Moses(Musa)), and we raised some of them to higher ranks. And we gave Jesus (Isa), son of Mary (Marium), profound miracles and supported him with the Holy Spirit. Had GOD willed, their followers would not have fought with each other, after the clear proofs had come to them. Instead, they disputed among themselves; some of them believed, and some disbelieved. Had GOD willed, they would not have fought. Everything is in accordance with GOD's will.
[Al-Anam 6:159] Those who divide themselves into sects do not belong with you. Their judgment rests with GOD, then He will inform them of everything they had done.
[Al-Baqarah 2:132] Moreover, Abraham exhorted his children to do the same, and so did Jacob (Yacoub): "O my children, GOD has pointed out the religion for you; do not die except as submitters." Had you witnessed Jacob (Yacoub) on his death bed; he said to his children, "What will you worship after I die?" They said, "We will worship your god; the god of your fathers Abraham (Ibrahim), Ismail, and Isaac (Ishaq); the one god. To Him we are submitters."
[Al-Imran 3:84] Say, "We believe in GOD, and in what was sent down to us, and in what was sent down to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac (Ishaq), Jacob (Yacoub), and the Patriarchs, and in what was given to Moses (Musa), Jesus (Isa), and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction among any of them. To Him alone we are submitters."
[Al-Nisa 4:163] We have inspired you, as we inspired Noah and the prophets after him. And we inspired Abraham, Ismail, Isaac (Ishaq), Jacob (Yacoub), the Patriarchs, Jesus (Isa), Job , Jonah (Yunus), Aaron (Haroon), and Solomon. And we gave David (Dawood) the Psalms.
[Hud 11:69] When our messengers went to Abraham with good news, they said, "Peace." He said, "Peace," and soon brought a roasted calf. When he saw that their hands did not touch it, he became suspicious and fearful of them. They said, "Do not be afraid, we are being dispatched to the people of Lot." His wife was standing, and she laughed when we gave her the good news about Isaac, and after Isaac, Jacob (Yacoub).
[Yousuf 12:36] Two young men were in the prison with him ((Josef)(Yusuf). One of them said, "I saw (in my dream) that I was making wine," and the other said, "I saw myself carrying bread on my head, from which the birds were eating. Inform us of the interpretation of these dreams. We see that you are righteous." He said, "If any food is provided to you, I can inform you about it before you receive it. This is some of the knowledge bestowed upon me by my Lord. I have forsaken the religion of people who do not believe in GOD, and with regard to the Hereafter, they are really disbelievers. "And I followed instead the religion of my ancestors, Abraham, Isaac (Ishaq), and Jacob (Yacub). We never set up any idols beside GOD. Such is the blessing from GOD upon us and upon the people, but most people are unappreciative. "O my prison mates, are several gods better, or GOD alone, the One, the Supreme? "You do not worship beside Him except innovations that you have made up, you and your parents. GOD has never authorized such idols. All ruling belongs to GOD, and He has ruled that you shall not worship except Him. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.
[Mary 19:4] He (Abraham) said, "My Lord, the bones have turned brittle in my body, and my hair is aflame with gray. As I implore You, my Lord, I never despair. "I worry about my dependants after me, and my wife has been sterile. Grant me, from You, an heir. "Let him be my heir and the heir of Jacob's (Yacub) clan, and make him, my Lord, acceptable."
[Al-Baqarah 2:151] (Blessings) such as the sending of a messenger from among you to recite our revelations to you, purify you, teach you the scripture and wisdom, and to teach you what you never knew. You shall remember Me, that I may remember you, and be thankful to Me; do not be unappreciative. O you who believe, seek help through steadfastness and the Contact Prayers (Salat). GOD is with those who steadfastly persevere.
[Al-Baqarah 2:172] O you who believe, eat from the good things we provided for you, and be thankful to GOD, if you do worship Him alone.
[Abrahim 14:6] Recall that Moses (Musa) said to his people, "Remember GOD's blessings upon you. He saved you from Pharaoh's people who inflicted the worst persecution upon you, slaughtering your sons and sparing your daughters. That was an exacting trial from your Lord." Your Lord has decreed: "The more you thank Me, the more I give you." But if you turn unappreciative, then My punishment is severe. Moses (Musa) said, "If you disbelieve, along with all the people on earth, GOD is in no need, Praiseworthy."
[Al-Anbya 21:79] We granted Solomon the correct understanding, though we endowed both of them with wisdom and knowledge. We committed the mountains to serve David in glorifying (God), as well as the birds. This is what we did. And we taught him the skill of making shields to protect you in war. Are you then thankful?
[Al-Sajdah 32:7] He is the One who perfected everything He created, and started the creation of the human from clay. Then He continued his reproduction through a certain lowly liquid. He shaped him and blew into him from His spirit. And He gave you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brains; rarely are you thankful.
[Ya Sin 36:33] One sign for them is the dead land: we revive it and produce from it grains for their food. We grow in it gardens of date palms, and grapes, and we cause springs to gush out therein. This is to provide them with fruits, and to let them manufacture with their own hands whatever they need. Would they be thankful? Glory be to the One who created all kinds of plants from the earth, as well as themselves, and other creations that they do not even know.
[Ghafer 40:61] GOD is the One who designed the night so you can rest in it, and the day lighted. GOD bestows many blessings upon the people, but most people are not thankful. Such is GOD your Lord, the Creator of all things. There is no god except He. How could you deviate?
[Al-Waaqeah 56:68] Have you noted the water you drink? Did you send it down from the clouds, or did we? If we will, we can make it salty. You should be thankful.
