Quran 31:7 Ayah 31:7 And when Our (Allaah’s) revelations are recited to them they turn away in pride as if they did not heard them (the revelations of Allaah) and as if their ears were deaf. So give them news of a painful punishment (in the Hereafter).

 

Quran 31:8 Ayah 31:8 For those who believe and do good deeds are the gardens of delight (in Paradise).

 

Quran 31:9 Ayah 31:9 In which they shall live (forever). It is a true promise from Allaah. He (Allaah) is the greatest (in importance to every creation) and wise.

And We (Allaah) send down rain from the sky and make (plants) of every kind to grow.

 

Quran 31:11 Ayah 31:11 This is the creation of Allaah. Now show me what those (whom you mistakenly pray to) instead of (correctly praying) to Him (Allaah) have created? No (they have created nothing because they themselves have all been created by Allaah whether they are idols or saints or prophets), so the wrongdoers are in clear error (when they mistakenly pray to the things or people whom Allaah has created instead of correctly praying to Allaah who is the creator of every creation).

 

Quran 31:12 Ayah 31:12 And certainly We (Allaah) gave Luqman wisdom, saying, “Give thanks to Allaah, and whoever gives thanks (to Allaah) gives it (their thanks) for (the benefit of) their soul. And whosoever refuses (to thank Allaah, let them know that) Allaah is not in need of anything (but every creation is in need of Him (Allaah who is their creator)) and to whom all praise (and all prayer) is due.”

To associate partners (with Allaah by mistakenly praying to something or some one who Allaah has created) is a tremendous sin (against Allaah because Allaah is the only one with the power to hear prayer).”

 

Quran 31:14 Ayah 31:14 And We (Allaah) have enjoined people (to care) for their parents. A person’s mother looked after them in weakness (when they were a baby) and during their two years of weaning (they drank milk from their mother’s breast) so give thanks to Me (Allaah) and to your parents. To Me (Allaah) is the (final) destination (in the Hereafter).

 

Quran 31:15 Ayah 31:15 But if they (your parents) try to make you associate partners with Me ((Allaah) by mistakenly asking you to pray to the things or people whom Allaah has created such as idols or saints or Prophets)) which you have no knowledge (of Allaah allowing since only Allaah the creator has the power to hear prayer) then do not obey them (and pray only to Allaah your creator). Be kind to them (your parents) in the world and follow the path of people who repent to Me (Allaah). To Me (Allaah) you shall be returned and I (Allaah) shall tell you what you used to do (in your life).

 

Quran 31:16 Ayah 31:16 (Luqman said), “My son, Even though it (your deed) might be only (as light as) the weight of a grain of mustard-seed and even though it (your deed) might be (hidden) inside a rock or in the heavens or in the earth, Allaah shall make it count (on the Day of Judgement). Allaah is subtle (in the processes of creation) and aware of everything everywhere.”

(Comment 1. Allaah is subtle (in the processes of creation) and aware of everything everywhere).

Quran 31:20 Ayah 31:20 Do you not see how Allaah has made whatever is in the heavens and on the earth subject to you and has given to you abundantly from His (Allaah’s) bounty that is (both) visible and invisible to you? Yet among people is the person who makes arguments concerning Allaah without knowledge or guidance or a scripture (from Allaah) that gives enlightenment.

 

Quran 31:21 Ayah 31:21 And when it is said to them (the stone idol worshippers in Mecca (Makkah), Arabia), “Follow what Allaah has revealed,” they say, “We follow what we found our fathers following.” (Do you follow them) even though Satan (Shaitan) was inviting them (your fathers) to the punishment of fire (in the Hereafter)?

Quran 31:24 Ayah 31:24 We give them (the disbelievers) enjoyment for a little (while) and then We (Allaah) take them to a great punishment (in the Hereafter).

 

Quran 31:25 Ayah 31:25 If you ask them (the stone idol worshippers in Mecca (Makkah), Arabia), “Who created the heavens and the earth?

Quran 31:26 Ayah 31:26 To Allaah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Allaah (the creator) has no needs and is worthy of praise (and all prayers).

 

Quran 31:27 Ayah 31:27 And if all the trees in the earth were (made into writing) pens and the sea (was made into ink that was) increased with seven more seas (as sources of ink), the words (decrees, commands) of Allaah would not have ended (by the time all the ink had ended). Allaah is the greatest (in importance to every creation) and wise.

 

Quran 31:28 Ayah 31:28 The creation of all of you (people) and the resurrection of all of you (people) is as (ease for Allaah to do as is the creation and the resurrection of) one person. Allaah hears and sees all (things).

Is resurrection from death back to life real in the Quran 20:55, 30:11, 30:19, 31:28

There was a time when humans did not exist 19:67, 76:1

Why is Allaah the only one who can hear prayer in the Quran 20:7, 20:55

 

 

Quran 31:29 Ayah 31:29 Have you not seen how Allaah causes the night to follow the day and causes the day to follow the night and has subjected the Sun and the Moon (to do their task) for a specific period of time and that Allaah knows what you do? (Allaah knows what you do because Allaah created every creation).

 

Quran 31:30 Ayah 31:30 That is because Allaah is the reality and what they (the stone idol worshippers in Mecca (Makkah) mistakenly) pray to instead of (correctly praying to) Him (Allaah) is false (since no creation can be Allaah because Allaah is the creator of every creation). Allaah is the highest and the greatest (in importance to every creation).

 

Quran 31:31 Ayah 31:31 Have you not seen how ships sail on the sea by the grace of Allaah so that He (Allaah) may show you His (Allaah’s) signs? In those things are (the) signs (of Allaah) for every steadfast and grateful (heart).

 

Quran 31:32 Ayah 31:32 And if a wave comes over them (over their boat), they (correctly) pray only to Him (Allaah). But when He (Allaah) brings them safely to land, some of them are not strong in their faith (half way between belief and disbelief they pray to stone idols when they are on land) but no one rejects Our (Allaah’s) signs except those that are disloyal and ungrateful (to Allaah who is their creator).

 

Quran 31:33 Ayah 31:33 People, Keep your duty to your Lord (Allaah) and fear a Day (the Day of Judgement) when the father (or mother) shall not be able to help the son (or the daughter) in any way, nor shall the son (or the daughter) be able to help the father (or the mother). Allaah always keeps His (Allaah’s) promise. Do not let the life of the world deceive you (to forget Allaah), nor let the deceiver (Satan (Shaitan)) deceive you in regards to Allaah (because Satan (Shaitan) tries to trick people to do what Allaah has forbidden them to do (such as to mistakenly pray to the creations of Allaah) and to trick people to believe that things are forbidden which Allaah has not forbidden (for example music and singing is not forbidden by Allaah but Satan (Shaitan) has whispered doubts to show who believes Allaah’s Quran and who believes the whispering of Satan (Shaitan) in Satans (Shaitan’s) war against Allaah)).

 

(Comment 1. Music, song, musical instruments are not prohibited, not haram (haraam), not forbidden in Islam.

Is song, music and musical instruments legal, allowed, prohibited, haram, forbidden in Islam?

See: 8.5 No one gave an example that was equal to Prophet Muhammad in knowing what others did not know. Prophet Muhammad and Aisha listened to singers with musical instruments in their house.

See in Allaah removed stoning to death for adultery.

He (Allaah) sends down the rain and He (Allaah) knows what is in the wombs. No person knows what it shall earn (in good or bad deeds) tomorrow and no person knows in which land they shall die but Allaah knows all (things).
