What Does God Want from Man?. Verse of the Throne.
“God, there is no deity save Him, the Living, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes him. Unto Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth. Who is he that intercedes with Him save by His leave? He knows that which is in front of them and that which is behind, while they encompass nothing of his knowledge save what He will. His throne includes the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.” (2:255)…….
The life of this world as idle play… (15:20-22)
“The Hereafter is better and more lasting.”
“Beautiful for mankind is love of the joys that come from women and offspring, and stored-up heaps of gold and silver, and horses branded, and cattle and land. That is comfort of the life of the world. God, with Him is a more excellent abode. Say: shall I inform you of something better than that? For those who keep from evil, with their Lord, are Gardens underneath which rivers flow, and pure companions, and contentment from God. God is most observant of His slaves.” 3:14 ff.
“There is no compulsion in religion. Guidance has been distinguished from error. And he who rejects false deities (taghut) and believes in God has grasped a firm handhold which will never break. God is Hearer, Knower.” (2:156)
By the night enshrouding.
And the day resplendent.
And Him who hath created the male and female.
Indeed you strive towards divergent ends!
As for him who gives and is dutiful, him will we ease towards ultimate goodness.
But as for those who are stingy and deem themselves self sufficient, them will we ease towards the ultimate hardship. (92:1-10)
