In the Qur’an, God tells the story of the Pharaoh and Haman:


And Fir’aun (Pharaoh) said: “O Hâmân! build Me a tower that I may arrive at the ways,

“The ways of the heavens, and I may look upon the Ilâh (God) of Mûsa (Moses) but Verily, I think Him to be a liar.” Thus it was made fair-seeming, In Fir’aun’s (Pharaoh) eyes, the evil of his deeds, and He was hindered from the (Right) path, and the plot of Fir’aun (Pharaoh) led to nothing but loss and destruction (for Him).

Haman has been ordered by the Pharaoh to build a tower.  So lets look in the bible, is Haman told to construct something in the bible? Yes, but not by the Pharaoh.  In the Book of Esther, Haman is an advisor to Xerxes (Ahaseures) and in Babylon.  So there are three discrepancies between the Qur’an and the Bible regarding Haman.

  1. Haman worked for the Pharaoh in the Qur’an, while Haman worked for Xerces in the Book of Esther.
  2. Haman was in Egypt in the Qur’an, while Haman was in Babylon in the book of Esther.
  3. Haman was in the neighborhood of 1,000 years earlier in the Qur’an than in the book of Esther.

Now when people in Europe began studying eastern thought, as well as Islam they discovered this.  Almost immediately they began saying that Muhammad (Peace be upon him) took this religion from some priest and mixed up the stories when he was “making” the Qur’an.  Their main goal was to say that the Qur’an was made up, or written by man.

Louis(or Ludovico) Maracci a Catholic Priest and confessor to Pope Innocent XI. ( wrote:

Mahumet(Muhammad) has mixed up sacred stories. He took Haman as the adviser of Pharaoh whereas in reality he was an adviser of Xerxes (Ahaseures), King of Persia. He also thought that the Pharaoh ordered construction for him of a lofty tower from the story of the Tower of Babel. It is certain that in the Sacred Scriptures there is no such story of the Pharaoh. Be that as it may, he Muhammad has related a most incredible story”

Encyclopedia Britannica said in 1891:

“The most ignorant Jew could never have mistaken Haman (the minister of Ahasuerus) for the minister of the Pharaoh”

Those are just a few of the examples of ignorance thinking that it is the truth.

In the late 19th century, the Catholic Church declared the Book of Esther, of being a book of tales and not a historic book.  Even the modern Jewish Encyclopedia has stated that this book is just a book of stories, stating that it was more of a book about Romance than did it state historic fact.  While not ONE Muslim ever doubts what the Qur’an is, it is the word of God, not inspired to humans, but the actual word of God.

So now we have discussed what the Qur’an says, what the bible says, what the Christians scholars say about the authenticity of the Qur’an, and then what they say about the authenticity of the Book of Esther.  Now lets discuss  history.

In the 19th and 20th century when the study of Hieroglyphics began to revive the language of the ancient Egyptians; a French Doctor Maurice Bucaille, was studying history and came across this disparity in the Qur’an and the Bible.  So he went to Egyptologist to get to the root of the person named “Haman”.  What he discovered was at the estimated time of Moses, there was a man who was named ‘Haman’ and he was a worker of the Pharaoh and his duty was “The Chief of the workers in the stone-quarries.”  SubhanAllah (Glory be to Allah) just as the Qur’an described it. So Dr. Bucaille went to one of the French Egyptologist and told him that the a man in 7th century who claimed to a Messenger of God, said that there was a man named Haman and that he was an architect for the Pharaoh.  He was later told that this book was the Qur’an, and the Egyptologist responded:

Had the Bible or any other literary work, composed during a period when the hieroglyphs could still be deciphered, quoted ‘Haman,’ the presence in the Qur’an of this word might have not drawn special attention. But, it is a fact that the hieroglyphs had been totally forgotten at the time of the Qur’anic Revelation and that no one could not read them until the 19th century AD. Since matters stood like that in ancient times, the existence of the word ‘Haman’ in the Qur’an suggests a special reflection.”

Not just that alone, there was a statue found in Egypt, which is currently in a museum in Australia of an ancient architect from the time of the Pharaohs, with his name sketched into stone, ‘Haman.’


Now we don’t know if this is the same Haman as mentioned in the Qur’an, but the Qur’an has the correct location, the correct name, the correct occupation, and the correct timing,  none of which the Bible has.

From the magazine issue dated Mar 30, 2009

Army specialist Terry Holdbrooks had been a guard at Guantánamo for about six months the night he had his life-altering conversation with detainee 590, a Moroccan also known as “the General.” This was early 2004, about halfway through Holdbrooks’s stint at Guantánamo with the 463rd Military Police Company. Until then, he’d spent most of his day shifts just doing his duty. He’d escort prisoners to interrogations or walk up and down the cellblock making sure they weren’t passing notes. But the midnight shifts were slow. “The only thing you really had to do was mop the center floor,” he says. So Holdbrooks began spending part of the night sitting cross-legged on the ground, talking to detainees through the metal mesh of their cell doors.

He developed a strong relationship with the General, whose real name is Ahmed Errachidi. Their late-night conversations led Holdbrooks to be more skeptical about the prison, he says, and made him think harder about his own life. Soon, Holdbrooks was ordering books on Arabic and Islam. During an evening talk with Errachidi in early 2004, the conversation turned to the shahada, the one-line statement of faith that marks the single requirement for converting to Islam (“There is no God but God and Muhammad is his prophet”). Holdbrooks pushed a pen and an index card through the mesh, and asked Errachidi to write out the shahada in English and transliterated Arabic. He then uttered the words aloud and, there on the floor of Guantánamo’s Camp Delta, became a Muslim.

When historians look back on Guantánamo, the harsh treatment of detainees and the trampling of due process will likely dominate the narrative. Holdbrooks, who left the military in 2005, saw his share. In interviews over recent weeks, he and another former guard told NEWSWEEK about degrading and sometimes sadistic acts against prisoners committed by soldiers, medics and interrogators who wanted revenge for the 9/11 attacks on America. But as the fog of secrecy slowly lifts from Guantánamo, other scenes are starting to emerge as well, including surprising interactions between guards and detainees on subjects like politics, religion and even music. The exchanges reveal curiosity on both sides—sometimes even empathy. “The detainees used to have conversations with the guards who showed some common respect toward them,” says Errachidi, who spent five years in Guantánamo and was released in 2007. “We talked about everything, normal things, and things [we had] in common,” he wrote to NEWSWEEK in an e-mail from his home in Morocco.

Holdbrooks’s level of identification with the other side was exceptional. No other guard has volunteered that he embraced Islam at the prison (though Errachidi says others expressed interest). His experience runs counter to academic studies, which show that guards and inmates at ordinary prisons tend to develop mutual hostility. But then, Holdbrooks is a contrarian by nature. He can also be conspiratorial. When his company visited the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York, Holdbrooks remembers thinking there had to be a broader explanation, and that the Bush administration must have colluded somehow in the plot.

But his misgivings about Guantánamo—including doubts that the detainees were the “worst of the worst”—were shared by other guards as early as 2002. A few such guards are coming forward for the first time. Specialist Brandon Neely, who was at Guantánamo when the first detainees arrived that year, says his enthusiasm for the mission soured quickly. “There were a couple of us guards who asked ourselves why these guys are being treated so badly and if they’re actually terrorists at all,” he told NEWSWEEK. Neely remembers having long conversations with detainee Ruhal Ahmed, who loved Eminem and James Bond and would often rap or sing to the other prisoners. Another former guard, Christopher Arendt, went on a speaking tour with former detainees in Europe earlier this year to talk critically about the prison.

Holdbrooks says growing up hard in Phoenix—his parents were junkies and he himself was a heavy drinker before joining the military in 2002—helps explain what he calls his “anti-everything views.” He has holes the size of quarters in both earlobes, stretched-out piercings that he plugs with wooden discs. At his Phoenix apartment, bedecked with horror-film memorabilia, he rolls up both sleeves to reveal wrist-to-shoulder tattoos. He describes the ink work as a narrative of his mistakes and addictions. They include religious symbols and Nazi SS bolts, track marks and, in large letters, the words BY DEMONS BE DRIVEN. He says the line, from a heavy-metal song, reminds him to be a better person.

Holdbrooks—TJ to his friends—says he joined the military to avoid winding up like his parents. He was an impulsive young man searching for stability. On his first home leave, he got engaged to a woman he’d known for just eight days and married her three months later. With little prior exposure to religion, Holdbrooks was struck at Gitmo by the devotion detainees showed to their faith. “A lot of Americans have abandoned God, but even in this place, [the detainees] were determined to pray,” he says.

Holdbrooks was also taken by the prisoners’ resourcefulness. He says detainees would pluck individual threads from their jumpsuits or prayer mats and spin them into long stretches of twine, which they would use to pass notes from cell to cell. He noticed that one detainee with a bad skin rash would smear peanut butter on his windowsill until the oil separated from the paste, then would use the oil on his rash.

Errachidi’s detention seemed particularly suspect to Holdbrooks. The Moroccan detainee had worked as a chef in Britain for almost 18 years and spoke fluent English. He told Holdbrooks he had traveled to Pakistan on a business venture in late September 2001 to help pay for his son’s surgery. When he crossed into Afghanistan, he said, he was picked up by the Northern Alliance and sold to American troops for $5,000. At Guantánamo, Errachidi was accused of attending a Qaeda training camp. But a 2007 investigation by the London Times newspaper appears to have corroborated his story; it eventually helped lead to his release.

In prison, Errachidi was an agitator. “Because I spoke English, I was always in the face of the soldiers,” he wrote NEWSWEEK in an e-mail. Errachidi said an American colonel at Guantánamo gave him his nickname, and warned him that generals “get hurt” if they don’t cooperate. He said his defiance cost him 23 days of abuse, including sleep deprivation, exposure to very cold temperatures and being shackled in stress positions. “I always believed the soldiers were doing illegal stuff and I was not ready to keep quiet.” (Navy Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon, a Pentagon spokesman, said in response: “Detainees have often made claims of abuse that are simply not supported by the facts.”) The Moroccan spent four of his five years at Gitmo in the punishment block, where detainees were denied “comfort items” like paper and prayer beads along with access to the recreation yard and the library.

Errachidi says he does not remember details of the night Holdbrooks converted. Over the years, he says, he discussed a range of religious topics with guards: “I spoke to them about subjects like Father Christmas and Ishac and Ibrahim [Isaac and Abraham] and the sacrifice. About Jesus.” Holdbrooks recalls that when he announced he wanted to embrace Islam, Errachidi warned him that converting would be a serious undertaking and, at Guantánamo, a messy affair. “He wanted to make sure I knew what I was getting myself into.” Holdbrooks later told his two roommates about the conversion, and no one else.

But other guards noticed changes in him. They heard detainees calling him Mustapha, and saw that Holdbrooks was studying Arabic openly. (At his Phoenix apartment, he displays the books he had amassed. They include a leather-bound, six-volume set of Muslim sacred texts and “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Understanding Islam.”) One night his squad leader took him to a yard behind his living quarters, where five guards were waiting to stage a kind of intervention. “They started yelling at me,” he recalls, “asking if I was a traitor, if I was switching sides.” At one point a squad leader pulled back his fist and the two men traded blows, Holdbrooks says.

Holdbrooks spent the rest of his time at Guantánamo mainly keeping to himself, and nobody bothered him further. Another Muslim who served there around the same time had a different experience. Capt. James Yee, a Gitmo chaplain for much of 2003, was arrested in September of that year on suspicion of aiding the enemy and other crimes—charges that were eventually dropped. Yee had become a Muslim years earlier. He says the Muslims on staff at Gitmo—mainly translators—often felt beleaguered. “There was an overall atmosphere by the command to vilify Islam.” (Commander Gordon’s response: “We strongly disagree with the assertions made by Chaplain Yee”).

At Holdbrooks’s next station, in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., he says things began to unravel. The only place to kill time within miles of the base was a Wal-Mart and two strip clubs—Big Daddy’s and Big Louie’s. “I’ve never been a fan of strip clubs, so I hung out at Wal-Mart,” he says. Within months, Holdbrooks was released from the military—two years before the end of his commitment. The Army gave him an honorable discharge with no explanation, but the events at Gitmo seemed to loom over the decision. The Army said it would not comment on the matter.

Back in Phoenix, Holdbrooks returned to drinking, in part to suppress what he describes as the anger that consumed him. (Neely, the other ex-guard who spoke to NEWSWEEK, said Guantánamo had made him so depressed he spent up to $60 a day on alcohol during a monthlong leave from the detention center in 2002.) Holdbrooks divorced his wife and spiraled further. Eventually his addictions landed him in the hospital. He suffered a series of seizures, as well as a fall that resulted in a bad skull fracture and the insertion of a titanium plate in his head.

Recently, Holdbrooks has been back in touch with Errachidi, who has suffered his own ordeal since leaving the detention center. Errachidi told NEWSWEEK he had trouble adjusting to his freedom, “trying to learn how to walk without shackles and trying to sleep at night with the lights off.” He signed each of the dozen e-mails he sent to NEWSWEEK with the impersonal ID that his captors had given him: Ahmed 590.

Holdbrooks, now 25, says he quit drinking three months ago and began attending regular prayers at the Tempe Islamic Center, a mosque near the University of Phoenix, where he works as an enrollment counselor. The long scar on his head is now mostly hidden under the lace of his Muslim kufi cap. When the imam at Tempe introduced Holdbrooks to the congregation and explained he’d converted at Guantánamo, a few dozen worshipers rushed over to shake his hand. “I would have thought they had the most savage soldiers serving there,” says the imam, Amr Elsamny, an Egyptian. “I never thought it would be someone like TJ.”

Now, these people (Submitters and Modernist) who reject the Sunnah, they will try to rationalize for their rejecting of the Sunnah by two things.  One that the Qur’an is complete, and two that the Sunnah has not been preserved.  When quoting a hadith to these people they might say “well that’s not in the Qur’an, why should I believe you? The Qur’an is complete, everything you need to know is in the Qur’an.”  They might even try to quote you the verses of the Qur’an that show that the Qur’an is complete.  Guess what? The Qur’an is complete, no one is arguing against that.  If shown the evidence from the Qur’an, they would backtrack and say that the Sunnah has not been preserved.  Saying the Sunnah does not need to be followed is Kufr.  Saying the Sunnah has not been preserved is not Kufr, but it leads to Kufr.  They say, “well Bukhari lived 300 years after the Prophet PBUH,” or “these Ahadith are like the gospels of Christianity.”

These two doubts can easily be refuted.  Is the Qur’an complete? Yes it is.  Is it sufficient in and of it self? Yes it is, but it orders us to go back to the Sunnah.  The second doubt that they bring is that the Sunnah has not been preserved.  The first way is to explain the long, detailed, dry, science of Hadith (Uloom ul Hadith).  You explain how the Sunnah was preserved, how the Sahaba preserved it, how the Tabioon preserved it, how the Taba Tabioon preserved it, the history of this process.  This is not something that can be explained in two minutes, this explanation will take quite some time.  The second way to prove the preservation of the Sunnah is the short cut.  This is a circular argument; it is full proof, and something that these people can NEVER refute.  The fact that the Sunnah is part of the religion necessitates that it will be preserved; it is sufficient proof that Allah will preserve it.


“Verily We: it is we who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur’ân and Sunnah) and surely, we will Guard it (from corruption)”

The fact that Allah SWT orders us to follow the Sunnah proves that Allah has protected the Sunnah.  Allah says


“Allâh burdens not a person beyond his scope”

Allah says he does not burden a soul, with something it cannot handle.  Allah would not order us to obey the Sunnah if he had not preserved it.

In previous post, I have mentioned that there are over 50 verses in the Qur’an that directly say to obey Prophet Muhammad (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam). I have mentioned some of them, and most books about the Authority of the Sunnah don’t actually list all of them. The book ‘The Authority and Importance of the Sunnah’ by Sheykh Jamal al-Din Zarabozo, actually lists them all. I am just going list all the verses, unlike my other post, I will not post the Arabic parts, because it would take me 10 years to post it all.

2:129 “Our Lord! send amongst them an Messenger of their own, who shall rehearse Thy Signs to them and instruct them In Scripture and Wisdom, and sanctify them: for Thou art the Exalted In Might, the Wise.”

2:159 those who conceal the Clear (Signs) we have sent down, and the guidance, after we have made it Clear for the people In the Book,-on them shall be Allah.s curse, and the curse of those entitled to curse,-

2:231 when ye divorce women, and They fulfil the term of their (‘Iddat), either take them back on equitable terms or set them free on equitable terms; but do not take them back to injure them, (or) to take undue advantage; if any one does that; He wrongs His own soul. do not treat Allah.s Signs As a jest, but solemnly rehearse Allah.s favours on you, and the fact that He sent down to you the Book and Wisdom, for your instruction. and fear Allah, and know that Allah is well acquainted with all things.

3:31 say: “If ye do love Allah, follow Me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.”

3:32 say: “Obey Allah and His Messenger.: but if They turn back, Allah loveth not those who reject Faith.

3:132 and obey Allah and the Messenger. that ye may obtain mercy.

3:164 indeed Allâh conferred a great Favour on the believers when He sent among them a Messenger (Muhammad) from among themselves, reciting unto them his Verses (the Qur’ân), and purifying them (from sins by their following him), and instructing them (in) the Book (the Qur’ân) and Al­Hikmah [the wisdom and the Sunnah of the Prophet (i.e. his legal ways, statements, acts of worship, etc.)], while before that they had been In manifest error.

4:13 those are limits set by Allah. those who obey Allah and His Messenger will be admitted to Gardens with rivers flowing beneath, to abide therein (for ever) and that will be the Supreme achievement.

4:14 but those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and transgress His limits will be admitted to a fire, to abide therein: and They shall have a humiliating punishment.

4:42 on that Day those who reject Faith and disobey the apostle will wish that the earth were made one with them: but never will They hide a single fact from Allah.

4:59 O ye who believe! obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. if ye differ In anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe In Allah and the Last Day: that is best, and Most suitable for final determination.

4:61 when it is said to them: “Come to what Allah hath revealed, and to the Messenger.: Thou seest the Hypocrites avert their faces from Thee In disgust.

4:64 we sent not an apostle, but to be obeyed, In accordance with the will of Allah. if They had only, when They were unjust to themselves, come unto Thee and asked Allah.s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, They would have found Allah indeed Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

4:65 but no, by the Lord, They can have no (real) Faith, until They make Thee judge In all disputes between them, and find In their souls no resistance against Thy decisions, but Accept them with the fullest conviction.

4:69 all who obey Allah and the apostle are In the company of those on whom is the Grace of Allah,- of the prophets (Who teach), the sincere (lovers of Truth), the witnesses (Who testify), and the righteous (Who do good): Ah! what a beautiful fellowship!

4:80 He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah. but if any turn away, we have not sent Thee to watch over their (evil deeds).

4:113 but for the Grace of Allah to Thee and His Mercy, a party of them would certainly have plotted to lead Thee astray. but (in fact) They will only lead their own souls astray, and to Thee They can do no harm In the least. for Allah hath sent down to Thee the Book and wisdom and taught Thee what Thou Knewest not (before): and great is the Grace of Allah unto thee.

4:115 if anyone contends with the Messenger Even after guidance has been plainly conveyed to him, and follows a path other than that becoming to men of Faith, we shall leave Him In the path He has chosen, and land Him In Hell,- what an evil refuge!

5:92 obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and beware (of evil): if ye do turn back, know ye that it is Our Messenger.s duty to proclaim (the message) In the clearest manner.

7:157 those who follow the Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write (i.e.Muhammad ) whom they find written with them In the Taurât (Torah) (Deut, xviii, 15) and the Injeel (Gospel) (John xiv, 16) , – He commands them for Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and All that Islâm has ordained); and forbids them from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of All kinds, and All that Islâm has forbidden); He allows them as lawful At-Taiyibât [(i.e. All good and lawful) as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.], and prohibits them as unlawful Al-Khabâ’ith (i.e. All evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.), He releases them from their heavy burdens (of Allâh’s Covenant), and from the fetters (bindings) that were upon them. so those who believe In Him (Muhammad), honour him, help him, and follow the light (the Qur’ân) which has been sent down with him, it is they who will be successful .

7:158 Say (O Muhammad ): “O mankind! Verily, I am sent to You All as the Messenger of Allâh – to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the Right to be worshipped but He); it is He who gives life and causes death. so believe In Allâh and his Messenger (Muhammad), the Prophet who can neither read nor write (i.e. Muhammad ) who believes In Allâh and his Words [(this Qur’ân), the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and also Allâh’s Word: “Be!” – and He was, i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary),], and follow Him so that You may be guided. “

8:12 (remember) when Your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over All their fingers and toes.”

8:13 This is because they defied and disobeyed Allâh and his Messenger. and whoever defies and disobeys Allâh and his Messenger, Then Verily, Allâh is Severe In punishment.

8:20. O You who believe! obey Allâh and his Messenger, and turn not away from Him (i.e. Messenger Muhammad ) while You are hearing.

8:24. O You who believe! answer Allâh (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when He () calls You to that which will give You life, and know that Allâh comes In between a person and his heart (i.e. He prevents an evil person to decide anything). and Verily to Him You shall (all) be gathered.

9:71. the believers, men and women, are Auliyâ’ (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they Enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and All that Islâm orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of All kinds, and All that Islâm has forbidden); they perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât) and give the Zakât, and obey Allâh and his Messenger. Allâh will have his Mercy on them. surely Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

16:44. with clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). and we have also sent down unto You (O Muhammad ) the Reminder and the advice (the Qur’ân), that You may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought.

24:48. and when they are called to Allâh (i.e. his words, the Qur’ân) and his Messenger (), to judge between them, Lo! a party of them refuse (to come) and turn away.

24:49. but if the Right is with them, they come to Him willingly with submission.

24:50. is there a disease In their hearts? or do they doubt or fear lest Allâh and his Messenger () should wrong them In judgement. Nay, it is they themselves who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists, hypocrites and wrong-doers, etc.).

24:51. the Only saying of the faithful believers, when they are called to Allâh (his words, the Qur’ân) and his Messenger (), to judge between them, is that they say: “We hear and we obey.” and such are the prosperous ones (who will live forever In Paradise).

24:52. and Whosoever obeys Allâh and his Messenger (), fears Allâh, and keeps his duty (to him), such are the successful ones.

24:54. say: “Obey Allâh and obey the Messenger, but if You turn away, He (Messenger Muhammad ) is Only responsible for the duty placed on Him (i.e. to convey Allâh’s Message) and You for that placed on you. if You obey him, You shall be on the Right Guidance. the Messenger’s duty is Only to convey (the Message) In a clear Way (i.e. to preach In a plain way).”

24:56. and perform AsSalât (IqâmatasSalât), and give Zakât and obey the Messenger (Muhammad) that You may receive Mercy (from Allâh).

24:62. the true believers are Only those, who believe In (the Oneness of) Allâh and his Messenger (Muhammad), and when they are with Him on some common matter, they Go not away until they have asked his permission. Verily! those who ask Your Permission, those are they who (really) believe In Allâh and his Messenger. so if they ask Your permission for some affairs of theirs, give permission to whom You will of them, and ask Allâh for their Forgiveness. Truly, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

24:63. make not the calling of the Messenger (Muhammad) among You as Your calling of one another. Allâh knows those of You who slip away under shelter (of some excuse without taking the permission to Leave, from the Messenger ). and let those who oppose the Messenger’s (Muhammad) Commandment (i.e. his Sunnah legal ways, orders, acts of worship, statements, etc.) (among the sects) beware, lest some Fitnah (disbelief, trials, afflictions, earthquakes, killing, overpowered by a tyrant, etc.) befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them.

27:79. so put Your trust In Allâh; surely, You (O Muhammad ) are on manifest truth.

33:21. indeed In the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) You have a good example to follow for Him who hopes In (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much.

33:34. and Remember (O You the members of the Prophet’s family, the graces of Your Lord), that which is recited In Your houses of the Verses of Allâh and AlHikmah (i.e. Prophet’s Sunnah legal ways, etc. so give Your thanks to Allâh and glorify his praises for This Qur’an and the Sunnah). Verily, Allâh is ever Most Courteous, WellAcquainted with All things.

33:36. it is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and his Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option In their decision. and whoever disobeys Allâh and his Messenger, He has indeed strayed In a plain error.

33:66. on the Day when their faces will be turned over In the Fire, they will say: “Oh, would that we had obeyed Allâh and obeyed the Messenger (Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam).”

33:71. He will direct You to do righteous good deeds and will forgive You Your sins. and Whosoever obeys Allâh and his Messenger (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) He has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. He will be saved from the Hell-fire and made to enter Paradise).

36:3. Truly, You (O Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) are one of the Messengers,

36:4. on a Straight Path (i.e. on Allâh’s Religion of Islâmic Monotheism).

42:52. and Thus we have sent to You (O Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) Ruhan (an inspiration, and a Mercy) of Our Command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is Faith? but we have made it (this Qur’ân) a light wherewith we Guide Whosoever of Our slaves we will. and Verily, You (O Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allâh’s Religion of Islâmic Monotheism).

42:53. the Path of Allâh, to whom belongs All that is In the heavens and All that is In the earth. Verily, All the matters at the end Go to Allâh (for decision).

47:33. O You who believe! obey Allâh, and obey the Messenger (Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) and render not vain Your deeds.

48:10. Verily, those who give Bai’â (pledge) to You (O Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) they are giving Bai’â (pledge) to Allâh. the Hand of Allâh is over their hands. Then Whosoever breaks his pledge, breaks Only to his own harm, and Whosoever fulfills what He has covenanted with Allâh, He will bestow on Him a great reward.

48:17. no blame or sin is there upon the blind, nor is there blame or sin upon the lame, nor is there blame or sin upon the sick (that they Go not forth to war). and Whosoever obeys Allâh and his Messenger (Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam), He will admit Him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow (Paradise); and Whosoever turns back, He will Punish Him with a painful torment.

49:1. O You who believe! do not put (yourselves) forward before Allâh and his Messenger (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam), and fear Allâh. Verily! Allâh is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

49:2. O You who believe! raise not Your voices above the voice of the Prophet (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam), nor speak aloud to Him In talk as You speak aloud to one another, lest Your deeds may be rendered fruitless while You perceive not.

53:2. Your companion (Muhammad Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam) has neither gone astray nor has erred.
