The Disbelievers

We created many of the jinn and mankind for Hell. They have hearts they do not understand with. They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with. Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray! They are the unaware. (Qur'an, 7:179)

THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN ALLAH

Fight those of the people who were given the Book who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who do not make forbidden what Allah and His Messenger have made forbidden and do not take as their religion the True Religion, until they pay the polltax with their own hands in a state of complete abasement. (Qur'an, 9:29)

He used not to believe in Allah the Magnificent, (Qur'an, 69:33)

THEY HAVE NO FEAR OF ALLAH

No fresh reminder comes to them from their Lord without their listening to it as if it was a game. (Qur'an, 21:2)

Say: 'Who provides for you out of heaven and earth? Who controls hearing and sight? Who brings forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living? Who directs the whole affair?' They will say, 'Allah.' Say, 'So will you not guard against evil?' (Qur'an, 10:31)

THEY WORSHIP OTHER THINGS THAN ALLAH

Do those who do not believe imagine that they can take My servants as protectors instead of Me? We have prepared Hell as hospitality for the unbelievers! (Qur'an, 18:102)

They have taken gods besides Allah so that perhaps they may be helped. (Qur'an, 36:74)

THEY ARE DISRESPECTFUL TOWARDS ALLAH

They allot a portion of the provision We have given them to things they have no knowledge of at all. By Allah, you will be asked about what you invented! They allot daughters to Allah–glory be to Him!–while they have (sons) they want! (Qur'an, 16:56-57)

When they were told, 'There is no god but Allah,' they were arrogant. (Qur'an, 37:35)

THEY CANNOT BEAR ALLAH BEING REMEMBERED

Those who do not believe say, 'Do not listen to this Qur'an. Drown it out so that hopefully you will gain the upper hand.' (Qur'an, 41:26)

When Our Signs are recited to them–Clear Signs–you can detect denial in the faces of those who do not believe. They all but assault those who recite Our Signs to them! Say: 'Shall I inform you of something worse than that? The Fire which Allah has promised those who do not believe. What an evil destination!' (Qur'an, 22:72)

We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it, and heaviness in their ears. When you mention your Lord alone in the Qur'an, they turn their backs and run away. (Qur'an, 17:46)

Those who do not believe all but strike you down with their evil looks when they hear the Reminder and say, 'He is quite mad.' (Qur'an, 68:51)

Those whose eyes were blind to My remembrance and whose ears were unable to hear (the Qur'an). (Qur'an, 18:101)

They desire to extinguish Allah's Light with their mouths. But Allah refuses to do other than perfect His Light, even though the unbelievers detest it. (Qur'an, 9:32)

When Allah is mentioned on His own, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shrink back shuddering, but when others apart from Him are mentioned, they jump for joy. (Qur'an, 39:45)

THEY SUPPOSE THAT ALLAH IS UNAWARE OF WHAT THEY DO

You did not think to shield yourselves from your hearing, sight and skin testifying against you and you thought that Allah would never know much of what you did. (Qur'an, 41:22)

Do they not know that Allah knows what they keep secret and what they make public? (Qur'an, 2:77)

Do they not know that Allah knows their secrets and their private talk, and that Allah is the Knower of all unseen things? (Qur'an, 9:78)

Or do they imagine that We do not hear their secrets and their private talk? On the contrary Our messengers are right there with them writing it down! (Qur'an, 43:80)

THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE DAY OF RESURRECTION

Mankind's Reckoning has drawn very close to them, yet they heedlessly turn away. (Qur'an, 21:1)

They did not expect to have a reckoning (Qur'an, 78:27)

Those who do not believe in it try to hasten it. But those who believe in it are afraid of it. They know it is the truth. Those who doubt the Hour are greatly misguided. (Qur'an, 42:18)

But instead, they deny the Hour; and We have prepared a Searing Blaze for those who deny the Hour. (Qur'an, 25:11)

When you were told, "Allah's promise is true and so is the Hour, of which there is no doubt, "you said, "We have no idea what the Hour is. We have only been conjecturing. We are by no means certain."' (Qur'an, 45:32)

But those who do not believe in the hereafter recoil from the path. (Qur'an, 23:74)

Have they not reflected within themselves? Allah did not create the heavens and the earth and everything between them except with truth and for a fixed term. Yet many people reject the meeting with their Lord. (Qur'an, 30:8)

No indeed! The truth is they do not fear the hereafter. (Qur'an, 74:53)

They say, 'When we have been absorbed into the earth, are we then to be in a new creation?' In fact they reject the meeting with their Lord. (Qur'an, 32:10)

That is their repayment for rejecting Our Signs and saying, 'What, when we are bones and crumbled dust, will we then be raised up as a new creation?' (Qur'an, 17:98)

Those are the people who reject their Lord's Signs and the meeting with Him. Their actions will come to nothing and, on the Day of Rising, We will not assign them any weight. That is their repayment – Hell – because they did not believe and made a mockery of My Signs and of My Messengers. (Qur'an, 18:105-106)

If you were to obey a human being like yourselves, you would, in that case, definitely be the losers. Does he promise you that when you have died and become dust and bones you will be brought forth again? What you have been promised is sheer nonsense! What is there but our life in this world? We die and we live and we will not be raised again. What is he but a man who has invented a lie against Allah? We do not believe in him.' (Qur'an, 23:34-38)

No, their knowledge stops short of the hereafter. In fact they have doubts about it. In fact they are blind to it. Those who do not believe say, 'When we and our fathers are turned to dust will we then be brought forth again? (Qur'an, 27:66-67)

THEY FEEL HATRED TOWARDS ALLAH, THE RELIGION AND THE BELIEVERS

You who believe! Do not take any outside yourselves as intimates. They will do anything to harm you. They love what causes you distress. Hatred has appeared out of their mouths, but what their breasts hide is far worse. We have made the Signs clear to you if you use your intellect. There you are, loving them when they do not love you, even though you believe the whole of the Book. When they meet you, they say, 'We believe.' But when they leave they bite their fingers out of rage against you. Say, 'Die in your rage.' Allah knows what your hearts contain. (Qur'an, 3:118-119)

He created man from a drop of sperm and yet he is an open challenger! (Qur'an, 16:4)

When they are told to prostrate to the All-Merciful, they say, 'And what is the All-Merciful? Are we to prostrate to something you command us to?' And it merely makes them run away all the more. (Qur'an, 25:60)

When Allah is mentioned on His own, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shrink back shuddering, but when others apart from Him are mentioned, they jump for joy. (Qur'an, 39:45)

When Our Signs are recited to such a person, he turns away arrogantly as if he had not heard, as if there was a great weight in his ears. So give him news of a painful punishment. (Qur'an, 31:7)

Or do they say, 'He is a man possessed,' when he has brought the truth to them? But most of them hate the truth. (Qur'an, 23:70)

It is He Who sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth to exalt it over every other religion, even though the idolaters detest it. (Qur'an, 9:33)

We brought you the truth but most of you hated the truth. (Qur'an, 43:78)

THEY DENY THE MESSENGERS ALLAH HAS SENT

The people of Nuh denied the truth before them, and the Confederates after them. Every nation planned to seize its Messenger and used false arguments to rebut the truth. So I seized them, and how was My retribution! (Qur'an, 40:5)

THEY ARE DOUBTFUL OF THE QUR'AN

But those who do not believe will not cease to be in doubt of it (the Qur'an) until the Hour comes on them suddenly or the punishment of a desolate Day arrives. (Qur'an, 22:55)

THEY DO NOT TAKE HEED

Not one of your Lord's Signs comes to them without their turning away from it. (Qur'an, 36:46)

When they are reminded they do not pay heed. (Qur'an, 37:13)

What is the matter with them that they run from the Reminder like panicked donkeys fleeing from a lion? (Qur'an, 74:49-51)

THEY ATTEMPT TO CONQUER THE BELIEVERS BY USE OF FORCE

Those who did not believe said to their Messengers, 'We will drive you from our land unless you return to our religion.' Their Lord revealed to them, 'We will destroy those who do wrong. (Qur'an, 14:13)

He (Pharaoh) said, 'If you take any god other than me, I will certainly throw you into prison.' (Qur'an, 26:29)

He (his father) said, 'Do you forsake my gods, Ibrahim? If you do not stop, I will stone you. Keep away from me for a good long time.' (Qur'an, 19:46)

Pharaoh said, 'Do you believe in him before I have authorised you? He is your chief, the one who taught you magic. I will cut off your hands and feet alternately and have you crucified on palm trunks. Then you will know for certain which of us has the harsher and longer lasting punishment.' (Qur'an, 20:71)

He (Pharaoh) said, 'Have you believed in him before I authorised you? He is your chief who taught you magic. But you will soon know! I will cut off your alternate hands and feet and I will crucify every one of you.' (Qur'an, 26:49)

They said, 'Lut, if you do not desist you will be expelled.' (Qur'an, 26:167)

The only answer of his people (to Ibrahim) was to say: 'Kill him or burn him!' But Allah rescued him from the fire. There are certainly Signs in that for people who are believers. (Qur'an, 29:24)

Before them the people of Nuh denied the truth. They denied Our servant, saying, 'He is madman,' and he was driven away with jeers. (Qur'an, 54:9)

The only answer of his people was to say, 'Expel them from your city! They are people who keep themselves pure!' (Qur'an, 7:82)

The ruling circle of those of his people who were arrogant said, 'We will drive you out of our city, Shu'ayb, you and those who believe along with you, unless you return to our religion.' He said, 'What, even though we detest it? (Qur'an, 7:88)

They said, 'Shu'ayb, We do not understand much of what you say and we see you are weak among us. Were it not for your clan, we would have stoned you. We do not hold you in high esteem!' (Qur'an, 11:91)

And construct great fortresses, hoping to live for ever, and when you attack, attack as tyrants do? (Qur'an, 26:129-130)

THEY RIDICULE THE RELIGION AND THE BELIEVERS

Woe to every faultfinding backbiter (Qur'an, 104:1)

Those who did evil used to laugh at those who believed. When they passed by them, they would wink at one another. When they returned to their families, they would make a joke of them. When they saw them, they would say, 'Those people are misguided.' (Qur'an, 83:29-32)

No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn! When they are reminded they do not pay heed. When they see a Sign they only laugh with scorn. (Qur'an, 37:12-14)

THEY WISH FOR WHAT CAUSES THE BELIEVERS DISTRESS

They have already tried to cause conflict before, and turned things completely upside down for you, until the truth came and Allah's command prevailed even though they detested it. (Qur'an, 9:48)

If good happens to you it galls them. If a mishap occurs to you, they say, 'We made our preparations in advance,' and they turn away rejoicing. (Qur'an, 9:50)

Those of the People of the Book who do not believe and the idolaters do not like anything good to be sent down to you from your Lord. But Allah selects for His mercy whomever He wills.  Allah's favour is truly vast. (Qur'an, 2:105)

You who believe! Do not take any outside yourselves as intimates. They will do anything to harm you. They love what causes you distress. Hatred has appeared out of their mouths, but what their breasts hide is far worse. We have made the Signs clear to you if you use your intellect. (Qur'an, 3:118)

If something good happens to you, it galls them. If something bad strikes you, they rejoice at it. But if you are steadfast and guard against evil, their scheming will not harm you in any way. Allah encompasses what they do. (Qur'an, 3:120)

THEY ARE INSISTENT IN THEIR DENIAL

Who is there who could provide for you if He withholds His provision?Yet still they obstinately persist in insolence and evasion. (Qur'an, 67:21)

Even if We opened up to them a door into heaven, and they spent the day ascending through it, they would only say, 'Our eyesight is befuddled! Or rather we have been put under a spell!' (Qur'an, 15:14-15)

Persisting in immense wrongdoing  (Qur'an, 56:46)

They have sworn by Allah with their most earnest oaths that if a Sign comes to them they will believe in it. Say: 'The Signs are in Allah's control alone.' What will make you realise that even if a Sign did come, they would still not believe? (Qur'an, 6:109)

They said, 'It makes no difference to us whether you preach or do not preach. This is only what the previous peoples did. We are not going to be punished.' (Qur'an, 26:136-138)

Who hears the Signs of Allah recited to him and then persists in his arrogance just as if he had never heard them.Give him the news of a painful punishment. (Qur'an, 45:8)

THEY ARE UNWORTHY OF TRUST

We did not find many of them worthy of their contract. We found most of them deviators. (Qur'an, 7:102)

Why is it that, whenever they make a contract, a group of them disdainfully tosses it aside? No indeed! Most of them have no faith. (Qur'an, 2:100)

But because of their breaking of their covenant, We have cursed them and made their hearts hard. They distort the true meaning of words and have forgotten a good portion of what they were reminded of. You will never cease to come upon some act of treachery on their part, except for a few of them. Yet pardon them, and overlook. Allah loves good-doers. (Qur'an, 5:13)

They respect neither kinship nor treaty where a believer is concerned. They are the people who overstep the limits. (Qur'an, 9:10)

Those who break Allah's contract after it has been agreed, and sever what Allah has commanded to be joined, and cause corruption on the earth, it is they who are the lost. (Qur'an, 2:27)

Those with whom you make a treaty and who then break it every time. They have not guard against evil. (Qur'an, 8:56)

They have the word, 'Obedience!' on their tongues but when they leave your presence, a group of them spend the night plotting to do other than what you say. Allah is recording their nocturnal plotting. So let them be and put your trust in Allah. Allah suffices as a Guardian. (Qur'an, 4:81)

THEY ARE AGGRESSIVE AND MERCILESS

No one denies it except for every evil aggressor. (Qur'an, 83:12)

Pharaoh exalted himself arrogantly in the land and divided its people into camps, oppressing one group of them by slaughtering their sons and letting their women live. He was one of the corrupters. (Qur'an, 28:4)

In the same way their idols have made killing their children appear good to many of the idolaters, in order to destroy them and confuse them in their religion. If Allah had willed, they would not have done it; so abandon them and what they fabricate. (Qur'an, 6:137)

The ruling circle of Pharaoh's people said, 'Are you going to leave Musa and his people to cause corruption in the earth and abandon you and your gods?' He said, 'We will kill their sons and let their women live. We have absolute power over them!' (Qur'an, 7:127)

THEY NEVER ABANDON THEIR PERVERTED BELIEFS

When they are told, 'Come to what Allah has sent down and to the Messenger,' they say, 'What we found our fathers doing is enough for us.' What! Even if their fathers did not know anything and were not guided! (Qur'an, 5:104)

Whenever they commit an indecent act, they say, 'We found our fathers doing it and Allah commanded us to do it too.' Say: 'Allah does not command indecency. Do you say things about Allah you do not know?' (Qur'an, 7:28)

THEY SEEK TO DISTORT THE VERSES OF ALLAH

But as for those who strive against My Signs and try to thwart them, they will be the Companions of the Blazing Fire. (Qur'an, 22:51)

Those who prefer the life of this world to the hereafter, and bar access to the way of Allah, wanting to make it crooked; they are greatly misguided. (Qur'an, 14:3)

Those who bar access to the way of Allah desiring to make it crooked and reject the hereafter. (Qur'an, 11:19)

Do not lie in wait on every pathway, threatening people, barring those who believe from the Way of Allah, desiring to make it crooked. Remember when you were few and He increased your number: see the final fate of the corrupters! (Qur'an, 7:86)

THEY COMMIT PERJURY

If they break their oaths after making their treaty and defame your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief—they have no binding oaths—so that hopefully they will stop. (Qur'an, 9:12)

THEY ARGUE ABOUT ALLAH AND
THE RELIGION DESPITE THEIR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE

They have no knowledge of this, neither they nor their fathers. It is a monstrous utterance which has issued from their mouths. What they say is nothing but a lie. (Qur'an, 18:5)

Among people there is one who argues about Allah without knowledge or guidance or any light-giving Book, (Qur'an, 22:8)

And they repudiated them wrongly and haughtily, in spite of their own certainty about them. See the final fate of the corrupters. (Qur'an, 27:14)

When they are told to prostrate to the All-Merciful, they say, 'And what is the All-Merciful? Are we to prostrate to something you command us to?' And it merely makes them run away all the more. (Qur'an, 25:60)

But as for those who reject Our Signs and are arrogant regarding them, they are the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (Qur'an, 7:36)

The ruling circle of those of his people who were arrogant said to those who were oppressed–those among them who believed–'Do you know that Salih has been sent from his Lord?' They said, 'We believe in what he has been sent with.' Those who were arrogant said, 'We reject Him in Whom you believe.' (Qur'an, 7:75-76)

The Messiah would never disdain to be a servant to Allah nor would the angels near to Him. If any do disdain to worship Him, and grow arrogant, He will in any case gather them all to Him. (Qur'an, 4:172)

When he is told to have fear of Allah, he is seized by pride which drives him to wrongdoing. Hell will be enough for him! What an evil resting-place! (Qur'an, 2:206)

THEY WORK TO LEAD PEOPLE FROM ALLAH'S WAY

But there are some people who trade in distracting tales to misguide people from Allah's Way knowing nothing about it and to make a mockery of it. Such people will have a humiliating punishment. (Qur'an, 31:6)

Allah desires to turn towards you, but those who pursue their lower appetites desire to make you deviate completely. (Qur'an, 4:27)

Those who bar access to the way of Allah desiring to make it crooked and reject the hereafter. (Qur'an, 11:19)

Those who bar access to the Way of Allah, desiring to make it crooked, and reject the hereafter.' (Qur'an, 7:45)

So on the Day of Rising they will carry the full weight of their own burdens and some of the burdens of those they misguided without knowledge. What an evil load they bear! (Qur'an, 16:25)

Say: 'Are we to call on something besides Allah which can neither help nor harm us, and to turn on our heels after Allah has guided us, like someone the satans have lured away in the earth, leaving him confused and stupefied, despite the fact that he has companions calling him to guidance, saying, "Come with us!"?'

They say, 'We will not believe you until you make a spring gush out from the earth for us; or have a garden of dates and grapes which you make rivers come pouring through; or make the sky, as you claim, fall down on us in lumps; or bring Allah and the angels here as a guarantee; or possess a house built out of gleaming gold; or ascend up into heaven–and even then we will not believe in your ascent unless you bring us down a book to read!' Say: 'Glory be to my Lord! Am I anything but a human messenger?' (Qur'an, 17:89-93)

Why have gold bracelets not been put upon his arms and why is there not a train of angels accompanying him?' (Qur'an, 43:53)

THEY PREFER INFIDELITY TO FAITH

You who believe, do not befriend your fathers and brothers if they prefer disbelief to faith. Those among you who do befriend them are wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 9:23)

THEY DO NOT BELIEVE EVEN 
IF THEY WITNESS MIRACLES

Even if there was a Qur'an which moved mountains, or split the earth open or spoke to the dead...! On the contrary! The affair is Allah's altogether. Do those who believe not know that if Allah had wanted to He could have guided all mankind?

Allah will not fail to keep His promise. (Qur'an, 13:31)

We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it, and heaviness in their ears. When you mention your Lord alone in the Qur'an, they turn their backs and run away. (Qur'an, 17:46)

Who could do greater wrong than someone who is reminded of the Signs of his Lord and then turns away from them, forgetting all that he has done before?

Have you seen him who takes his whims and desires to be his god–whom Allah has misguided knowingly, sealing up his hearing and his heart and placing a blindfold over his eyes? Who then will guide him after Allah? So will you not pay heed? (Qur'an, 45:23)

THEIR HEARTS ARE FULL
OF AVARICE FOR THIS WORLD

So turn away from him who turns away from Our remembrance and desires nothing but the life of this world. (Qur'an, 53:29)

Those who took their religion as a diversion and a game, and were deluded by the life of this world.' Today We will forget them just as they forgot the encounter of this Day and denied Our Signs. (Qur'an, 7:51)

Say: 'If your fathers or your sons or your brothers or your wives or your tribe, or any wealth you have acquired, or any business you fear may slump, or any house which pleases you, are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger and striving in His Way, then wait until Allah brings about His command. Allah does not guide people who are deviators.' (Qur'an, 9:24)

That is because you made a mockery of Allah's Signs and the life of this world deluded you.'Therefore, today they will not get out of it. They will not be able to appease Allah (Qur'an, 45:35)

THEY HAVE SUPERSTITIONS

Allah did not institute any such thing as bahira or sa'iba or wasila or hami. Those who did not believe invented lies against Allah. Most of them do not use their intellect. (Qur'an, 5:103)

That is because Allah – He is the Truth, and what you call upon besides Him is falsehood. Allah is the All-High, the Most Great. (Qur'an, 31:30)

Allah has not allotted to any man two hearts within his breast, nor has He made those of your wives you equate with your mothers your actual mothers, nor has He made your adopted sons your actual sons. These are just words coming out of your mouths. But Allah speaks the truth and He guides to the Way. (Qur'an, 33:4)

But they have adopted gods apart from Him which do not create anything but are themselves created. They have no power to harm or help themselves. They have no power over death or life or resurrection. (Qur'an, 25:3)

Instead of Allah, he calls on something which cannot harm him or help him. That is extreme misguidance. (Qur'an, 22:12)

They worship besides Allah something for which no authority has come down, something about which they have no knowledge. There is no helper for the wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 22:71)

They worship, instead of Allah, what can neither harm them nor help them, saying, 'These are our intercessors with Allah.' Say: 'Would you inform Allah of something about which He does not know either in the heavens or on the earth?' May He be glorified and exalted above what they associate with Him! (Qur'an, 10:18)

THEY ACT ON SUPPOSITION
AND CONJECTURE

Yes, indeed! Everyone in the heavens and everyone on the earth belongs to Allah. Those who call on something other than Allah are not really following their partner-gods. They are only following conjecture. They are only guessing. (Qur'an, 10:66)

They say, 'There is nothing but our existence in this world. We die and we live and nothing destroys us except for time.' They have no knowledge of that. They are only conjecturing. (Qur'an, 45:24)

Those who associate others with Allah will say, 'If Allah had willed we would not have associated anything with Him, nor would our fathers; nor would we have made anything forbidden.' In the same way the people before them also lied until they felt Our violent force. Say: 'Do you have some knowledge you can produce for us? You are following nothing but conjecture. You are only guessing.' (Qur'an, 6:148)

Most of them follow nothing but conjecture. Conjecture is of no use whatsoever against the truth. Allah most certainly knows what they are doing. (Qur'an, 10:36)

Death to the conjecturers: (Qur'an, 51:10)

THEY SUFFER FROM A GREAT DELUSION

If Allah were to hasten evil for people the way they try to hasten good, their term would already have been completed for them. We abandon those who do not expect to meet Us to wander blindly in their excessive insolence. (Qur'an, 10:11)

Who is there who could be a force for you, to come to your support, apart from the All-Merciful? The unbelievers are only living in delusion. (Qur'an, 67:20)

Do you suppose that most of them hear or understand? They are just like cattle. Indeed they are even more astray! (Qur'an, 25:44)

And the True Promise is very close, the eyes of those who did not believe will be transfixed: 'Alas for us! We were unmindful of this! No, rather we were definitely wrongdoers.' (Qur'an, 21:97)

THEY CANNOT SEE THE TRUTH

He said, 'All knowledge is with Allah. I only transmit to you what I have been sent with.But I see that you are a people who are ignorant.' (Qur'an, 46:23)

If their turning away is hard on you, then go down a tunnel deep into the earth, if you can, or climb up a ladder into heaven, and bring them a Sign. If Allah had wanted to He would have gathered them all to guidance. So do not be among the ignorant. (Qur'an, 6:35)

Pharaoh sent marshals into the cities: 'These people are a small group and we find them irritating and we constitute a vigilant majority.' (Qur'an, 26:53-56)

When they are told, 'Believe in the way that the people believe,' they say, 'What! Are we to believe in the way that fools believe?' No indeed! They are the fools, but they do not know it. (Qur'an, 2:13)

THEY LACK WISDOM

Or do they say, 'He is a poet and We are waiting for something bad to happen to him'? Say: 'Wait then! I am waiting with you.' Is it their intellects that direct them to say this or is it that they are an unbridled people? (Qur'an, 52:30-32)

It all but bursts with rage. Each time a group is flung into it its custodians will question them: 'Did no warner come to you?' They will say, 'Yes indeed, a warner did come to us but we denied him and said, "Allah has sent nothing down.You are just greatly misguided."' They will say, 'If only we had really listened and used our intellect,we would not have been Companions of the Blaze.' Then they will acknowledge their wrong actions.Away with the Companions of the Blaze! (Qur'an, 67:8-11)

No self can believe except with Allah's permission. He places a blight on those who do not use their intellect (Qur'an, 10:100)

Among them there are some who listen to you. But can you make the deaf hear even though they cannot understand? Among them there are some who look at you. But can you guide the blind, even though they cannot see? (Qur'an, 10:42-43)

Each time a sura is sent down, they look at one another, implying, 'Can anyone see you?' Then they turn away. Allah has turned their hearts away because they are people who do not understand. (Qur'an, 9:127)

We created many of the jinn and mankind for Hell. They have hearts they do not understand with. They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with. Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray! They are the unaware. (Qur'an, 7:179)

When you call to prayer they make a mockery and a game of it. That is because they are people who do not use their intellect. (Qur'an, 5:58)

The worst of beasts in Allah's sight are the deaf and dumb who have no intellect. (Qur'an, 8:22)

THEY SUPPOSE THEY ARE WISE

Pharaoh sent marshals into the cities: 'These people are a small group and we find them irritating and we constitute a vigilant majority.' (Qur'an, 26:53-56)

When they are told, 'Believe in the way that the people believe,' they say, 'What! Are we to believe in the way that fools believe?' No indeed! They are the fools, but they do not know it. (Qur'an, 2:13)

THEY THINK SIMPLY AND SUPERFICIALLY

They say, 'What is the matter with this Messenger, that he eats food and walks in the market-place? Why has an angel not been sent down to him so that it can be a warner along with him? Why has treasure not been showered down on him? Why does he not have a garden to give him food?' The wrongdoers say, 'You are merely following a man who is bewitched.' See how they make comparative judgements about you. They are misguided and cannot find the way. (Qur'an, 25:7-9)

They know an outward aspect of the life of this world but are heedless of the hereafter. (Qur'an, 30:7)

Wherever you are, death will catch up with you, even if you are in impregnable fortresses. If a good thing happens to them, they say, 'This has come from Allah.' But if a bad thing happens to them, they say, 'This has come from you.' Say, 'Everything comes from Allah.' What is the matter with these people that they scarcely understand a single word? (Qur'an, 4:78)

What then of Him who is standing over every self seeing everything it does? Yet still they associate others with Allah! Say: 'Name them! Or would you inform Him of something in the earth He does not know, or are they words which are simply guesswork on your part?' However, the plotting of those who do not believe seems good to them and they bar the way. Anyone misguided by  Allah has no guide. (Qur'an, 13:33)

Pharaoh said, 'Council, I do not know of any other god for you apart from Me. Haman, kindle a fire for me over the clay and build me a lofty tower so that perhaps I may be able to climb up to Musa's god! I consider him a blatant liar.' (Qur'an, 28:38)

THEY ESTEEM WORTHLESS THINGS

But there are some people who trade in distracting tales to misguide people from Allah's Way knowing nothing about it and to make a mockery of it. Such people will have a humiliating punishment. (Qur'an, 31:6)

Yet they play around in doubt. (Qur'an, 44:9)

Woe that Day to the deniers, who play at frivolous games: (Qur'an, 52:11-12)

So leave them to plunge and play around until they meet their Day which they are promised. (Qur'an, 70:42)

"We plunged with those who plunged" (Qur'an, 74:45)

THEY TAKE THEIR WHIMS
AND DESIRES AS THEIR GOD

Have you seen him who takes his whims and desires to be his god –whom Allah has misguided knowingly, sealing up his hearing and his heart and placing a blindfold over his eyes? Who then will guide him after Allah? So will you not pay heed? (Qur'an, 45:23)

THEY ARE ADDICTED TO THEIR APPETITES

To mankind the love of worldly appetites is painted in glowing colours: women and children, and heaped-up mounds of gold and silver, and horses with fine markings, and livestock and fertile farmland. All that is merely the enjoyment of the life of this world. The best homecoming is in the presence of Allah. (Qur'an, 3:14)

An evil generation succeeded them who neglected the prayer and followed their appetites. They will plunge into the Valley of Evil. (Qur'an, 19:59)

Allah desires to turn towards you, but those who pursue their lower appetites desire to make you deviate completely. (Qur'an, 4:27)

You come with lust to men instead of women. You are indeed a depraved people.' (Qur'an, 7:81)

Of all beings, do you lie with males, (Qur'an, 26:165)

THEY ARE IN HORROR

We will cast terror into the hearts of those who do not believe because they have associated others with Allah for which He has not sent down any authority. Their shelter will be the Fire. How evil is the abode of the wrongdoers! (Qur'an, 3:151)

THEY RUN AWAY FROM THOSE
WHO HAVE FAITH

Like panicked donkeys fleeing from a lion? (Qur'an, 74:50-51)

THEY ARE DISTRESSED

Be people of pure natural belief in Allah, not associating anything else with Him. As for anyone who associates others with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from the sky and the birds had seized him and carried him away or the wind had dropped him in a distant place. (Qur'an, 22:31)

When Allah desires to guide someone, He expands his breast to Islam. When He desires to misguide someone, He makes his breast narrow and constricted as if he were climbing up into the sky. That is how Allah defiles those who have no faith. (Qur'an, 6:125)

THEY ARE IN PERMANENT DOUBT
AND ANXIETY

But those who do not believe will not cease to be in doubt of it (the Qur'an) until the Hour comes on them suddenly or the punishment of a desolate Day arrives. (Qur'an, 22:55)

Has news not reached you of those who came before you, the peoples of Nuh and 'Ad and Thamud, and those who came after them who are known to no one but Allah? Their Messengers came to them with Clear Signs, but they put their hands to their mouths, saying, 'We reject what you have been sent with. We have grave doubts about what you are calling us to.' (Qur'an, 14:9)

It is He Who created you from clay and then decreed a fixed term, and another fixed term is specified with Him. Yet you still have doubts! (Qur'an, 6:2)

They said, 'Salih, we had great hopes in you before this happened. Do you forbid us to worship what our fathers worshipped? We have grave doubts about what you are calling us to.' (Qur'an, 11:62)

THEY IMMEDIATELY FALL INTO DESPAIR

If We let man taste mercy from Us, and then take it away from him, he is despairing, ungrateful; (Qur'an, 11:9)

When We bless man, he turns away and draws aside. When evil touches him, he despairs. (Qur'an, 17:83)

When We give people a taste of mercy, they rejoice in it, but when something bad happens to them because of what they themselves have done, they immediately lose all hope. (Qur'an, 30:36)

THEY ARE IN DISCORD
EVEN AMONG THEMSELVES

Mankind was a single community. Then Allah sent out Prophets bringing good news and giving warning, and with them He sent down the Book with truth to decide between people regarding their differences. Only those who were given it (the Book) differed about it, after the Clear Signs had come to them, envying one another. Then, by His permission, Allah guided those who believed to the truth of that about which they had differed. Allah guides whoever He wills to a straight path. (Qur'an, 2:213)

But those who do not believe are full of vain glory and entrenched in hostility. (Qur'an, 38:2)

THEY LEAD EACH OTHER TO HELL

In this way We have appointed as enemies to every Prophet satans from both mankind and from the jinn, who inspire each other with delusions by means of specious words–if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so abandon them and all they fabricate. (Qur'an, 6:112)

We made them leaders, summoning to the Fire, and on the Day of Rising they will not be helped. (Qur'an, 28:41)

Arguing in it with one another, they will say, 'By Allah, we were plainly misguided when We equated you with the Lord of all the worlds. It was only the evildoers who misguided us (Qur'an, 26:96-99)

So on the Day of Rising they will carry the full weight of their own burdens and some of the burdens of those they misguided without knowledge. What an evil load they bear! (Qur'an, 16:25)

Those against whom the Word has been justly carried out will say, 'Our Lord, those people we misled, we only misled them as we too were misled. We declare our innocence to You. It was not us they were worshipping!' (Qur'an, 28:63)

those who followed will say, 'If only we could have another chance, we would disown them just as they have disowned us.' In that way Allah will show them their actions as a cause of anguish and remorse for them. They will never emerge from the Fire. (Qur'an, 2:167)

He will say, 'Enter the Fire together with the nations of jinn and men who have passed away before you.' Each time a nation enters, it will curse its sister nation, until, when they are all gathered together in it, the last of them will say to the first, 'Our Lord, those are the ones who misguided us, so give them a double punishment in the Fire.' He will say, 'Each will receive double. But you do not know it.' (Qur'an, 7:38)

THEY TRY TO DEFAME THE BELIEVERS
WITH CALUMNIES

The ruling circle of Pharaoh's people said, 'This is certainly a skilled magician who desires to expel you from your land, so what do you recommend?' (Qur'an, 7:109-110)

Furthermore they say, 'A muddled jumble of dreams!' and, 'He has invented it!' and, 'He is a poet!' and, 'Let him bring us a Sign like those sent to previous peoples.' (Qur'an, 21:5)

What is he but a man who has invented a lie against Allah? We do not believe in him.' (Qur'an, 23:38)

Has the Reminder been given to him of all of us?No indeed! He is an impudent liar.' (Qur'an, 54:25)

Those who do not believe say, 'This is nothing but a lie he has invented and other people have helped him to do it. ' They have brought injustice and falsehood. (Qur'an, 25:4)

THEY ARE ARROGANT AND SPOILT

'Do not run away! Return to the life of luxury you enjoyed and to the places where you lived, so that you can be interrogated!' (Qur'an, 21:13)

How many cities We have destroyed which lived in insolent ingratitude! There are their houses, never again inhabited after them, except a little. It was We Who were their Heir. (Qur'an, 28:58)

Qarun was one of the people of Musa but he lorded it over them. We gave him treasures, the keys alone to which were a heavy weight for a party of strong men. When his people said to him, 'Do not gloat. Allah does not love people who gloat. (Qur'an, 28:76)

'No, the fact is that My Signs came to you but you denied them and were arrogant and were one of the unbelievers.' (Qur'an, 39:59)

THEY DO NOT ACCEPT THEIR HELPLESSNESS

'Taste that! You are the mighty one, the noble one! This is the very thing you used to doubt.' (Qur'an, 44:49-50)

When he is told to have fear of Allah, he is seized by pride which drives him to wrongdoing. Hell will be enough for him! What an evil resting-place! (Qur'an, 2:206)

THEY ARE UNCLEAN

You who believe! The idolaters are unclean, so after this year they should not come near the Masjid al-Haram. If you fear impoverishment, Allah will enrich you from His bounty if He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Qur'an, 9:28)

THEY ARE UNGRATEFUL

In the same way We have sent you among a nation before which other nations passed away, to recite to them what We have revealed to you. Yet they still reject the All-Merciful. Say: 'He is my Lord; there is no god but Him. I put my trust in Him and I turn to Him.' (Qur'an, 13:30)

But when He removes the harm from you, a group of you associate others with their Lord, ungrateful for what We have given them. Enjoy yourselves. You will soon know! (Qur'an, 16:54-55)

If We let man taste mercy from Us, and then take it away from him, he is despairing, ungrateful; (Qur'an, 11:9)

When harm occurs to you at sea, those you call on vanish – except for Him alone! But when He delivers you to dry land, you turn away. Man truly is ungrateful. (Qur'an, 17:67)

Allah has given you wives from among yourselves, and given you children and grandchildren from your wives, and provided good things for you. So why do they believe in falsehood and reject the blessings of Allah, (Qur'an, 16:72)

When harm touches man, he calls on Us, lying on his side or sitting down or standing up. Then when We remove the harm from him he carries on as if he had never called on Us when the harm first touched him. In that way We make what they have done appear good to the profligate. (Qur'an, 10:12)

When harm touches man he calls on Us.Then when We grant him a blessing from Us he says, 'I have only been given this because of my knowledge.' In fact it is a trial but most of them do not know it. (Qur'an, 39:49)

THEY ARE NEVER SATISFIED

Leave the person I created on his own to Me alone, him to whom I have given great wealth and sons who stay with him, and whose way I have smoothed. Then he wants Me to add yet more! (Qur'an, 74:11-15)

Your Lord is always lying in wait. As for man, when his Lord tests him by honouring him and favouring him, he says, 'My Lord has honoured me!' But then when He tests him by restricting his provision, he says, 'My Lord has humiliated me!' (Qur'an, 89:14-16)

THEY ARE SQUANDERERS

Squanderers are brothers to the satans, and satan was ungrateful to his Lord. (Qur'an, 17:27)

THEY ARE PARSIMONIOUS

As for those who are tight-fisted and direct others to be tight-fisted, and hide the bounty Allah has given them, We have prepared a humiliating punishment for those who do not believe. (Qur'an, 4:37)

Or do they indeed really own a portion of Allah's kingdom? In that case they do not give so much as a scrap to other people! (Qur'an, 4:53)

Say: 'Even if you possessed the vast storehouses of my Lord's mercy, you would still hold back, fearing they would run out.' (Qur'an, 17:100)

THEY DO NOT HELP THE POOR

And deny help to others. (Qur'an, 107:7)

And when they are told, 'Spend from the provision Allah has given you,' those who do not believe say to those who believe, 'Why should we feed someone whom, if He wished, Allah would feed Himself? You are clearly in error.' (Qur'an, 36:47)

And we did not feed the poor. (Qur'an, 74:44)

Have you seen him who denies the religion? He is the one who harshly rebuffs the orphan and does not urge the feeding of the poor. (Qur'an, 107:1-3)

THEY CONSUME PEOPLE'S WEALTH
BY WRONGFUL MEANS

Give orphans their property, and do not substitute bad things for good. Do not assimilate their property into your own. Doing that is a serious crime. (Qur'an, 4:2)

And because of their practising interest when they were forbidden to do it, and because of their consuming people's wealth by wrongful means, We have prepared for the unbelievers among them a painful punishment. (Qur'an, 4:161)

And to Madyan We sent their brother Shu'ayb who said, 'My people, worship Allah! You have no other god than Him. A Clear Sign has come to you from your Lord. Give full measure and full weight. Do not diminish people's goods. Do not cause corruption in the land after it has been put right. That is better for you if you are believers. (Qur'an, 7:85)

Woe to the defrauders! Those who, when they take a measure from people, exact full measure, but when they give them a measure or weight, hand over less than is due. (Qur'an, 83:1-3)

Give full measure. Do not skimp. Weigh with a level balance. Do not diminish people's goods and do not go about the earth, corrupting it. (Qur'an, 26:181-183)

THEY LIKE TO SHOW OFF

You who believe! Do not nullify your charity by demands for gratitude or insulting words, like him who spends his wealth, showing off to people and not believing in Allah and the Last Day. His likeness is that of a smooth rock coated with soil, which, when heavy rain falls on it, is left stripped bare. They have no power over anything they have earned. Allah does not guide people who do not believe. (Qur'an, 2:264)

Do not be like those who left their homes in arrogance, showing off to people and barring them from the way of Allah – Allah encompasses what they do. (Qur'an, 8:47)

THEY ARE BOASTFUL
OF THEIR WEALTH AND POWER

'Ad were arrogant in the land, without any right, saying, 'Who has greater strength than us?' Did they not see that Allah, Who created them, had greater strength than them? But they renounced Our Signs. (Qur'an, 41:15)

He was a man of wealth and property and he said to his companion, debating with him, 'I have more wealth than you and more people under me.' (Qur'an, 18:34)

Pharaoh called to his people, saying, 'My people, does the kingdom of Egypt not belong to me? Do not all these rivers flow under my control? Do you not then see? Am I not better than this man who is contemptible and can scarcely make anything clear? Why have gold bracelets not been put upon his arms and why is there not a train of angels accompanying him?' (Qur'an, 43:51-53)

THEY TRUST IN THEIR WEALTH
AND THEIR BEING IN THE MAJORITY

Simply because he possesses wealth and sons. When Our Signs are recited to him, he says, 'Just myths of previous peoples!' (Qur'an, 68:14-15)

Does he imagine that no one has power over him? He says, 'I have consumed vast quantities of wealth.' (Qur'an, 90:5-6)

What about the one who argued with Ibrahim about his Lord, on the basis that Allah had given him sovereignty? Ibrahim said, 'My Lord is He Who gives life and causes to die.' He said, 'I too give life and cause to die.' Ibrahim said, 'Allah makes the sun come from the East. Make it come from the West.' And the one who did not believe was dumbfounded. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people. (Qur'an, 2:258)

He was a man of wealth and property and he said to his companion, debating with him, 'I have more wealth than you and more people under me.' (Qur'an, 18:34)

He thinks his wealth will make him live for ever. (Qur'an, 104:3)

Say: 'As for those who are astray, let the All-Merciful prolong their term until they see what they were promised, whether it be the punishment or the Hour. Then they will know who is in the worse position and has the weaker troops.' (Qur'an, 19:75)

They also said, 'We have more wealth and children. We are not going to be punished.' (Qur'an, 34:35)

THEY HONOUR ONLY THOSE
WITH WEALTH AND POWER

Why, when you entered your garden, did you not say, "It is as Allah wills, there is no strength but in Allah"? Though you see me with less wealth and children than you possess, (Qur'an, 18:39)

Their Prophet said to them, 'Allah has appointed Talut to be your king.' They said, 'How can he have kingship over us when we have much more right to kingship than he does? He has not even got much wealth!' He said, 'Allah has chosen him over you and favoured him greatly in knowledge and physical strength. Allah gives kingship to anyone He wills. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.' (Qur'an, 2:247)

They say, 'Why was this Qur'an not sent down to one of the great men of the two cities?' (Qur'an, 43:31)

Pharaoh called to his people, saying, 'My people,does the kingdom of Egypt not belong to me?Do not all these rivers flow under my control?Do you not then see? (Qur'an, 43:51)

Am I not better than this man who is contemptible and can scarcely make anything clear? (Qur'an, 43:52)

THEY TAKE THE SIDE OF THE POWERFUL,
NOT OF THE RIGHTEOUS

Do those who take the unbelievers as protectors, rather than the believers, hope to find power and strength with them? Power and strength belong entirely to Allah. (Qur'an, 4:139)

No one believed in Musa except for a few of his people out of fear that Pharaoh, and the elders, would persecute them. Pharaoh was high and mighty in the land. He was one of the profligate. (Qur'an, 10:83)

THEY TAKE EACH OTHER
AS FRIENDS AND INTIMATES

Those who do not believe are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. (Qur'an, 8:73)

THEY DEVIATE BY SAYING THE SAME THING
AS PREVIOUS PEOPLES

However, they say the same as previous peoples said. (Qur'an, 23:81)

Equally, no Messenger came to those before them without their saying, 'A magician or a madman!' Did they bequeathe this to each other? Indeed they are an unbridled people. (Qur'an, 51:52-53)

THEY ARE FRIENDS OF SATAN

Those who believe fight in the Way of Allah. Those who do not believe fight in the way of false gods. So fight the friends of satan! Satan's scheming is always feeble. (Qur'an, 4:76)

THEY CAN MARRY ONLY EACH OTHER

Corrupt women are for corrupt men and corrupt men are for corrupt women, Good women are for good men and good men are for good women. The latter are innocent of what they say. They will have forgiveness and generous provision. (Qur'an, 24:26)

THEY DO NOT CARE FOR WOMEN

They allot daughters to Allah–glory be to Him!–while they have (sons) they want! When one of them is given the good news of a baby girl, his face darkens and he is furious. He hides away from people because of the evil of the good news he has been given. Should he keep her ignominiously or bury her in the earth? What an evil judgement they make! (Qur'an, 16:57-59)

Has He then taken daughters from what He has created and chosen sons for you? When any of them is given the good news of the very thing which he himself has ascribed to the All-Merciful his face darkens and he is furious. What! Is then one brought up among pretty trinkets who cannot produce a cogent argument (to be associated with Allah)!' (Qur'an, 43:16-18)

ALL THEIR ACTIONS IN THE LIFE
OF THIS WORLD WILL COME TO NOTHING

Say: 'Shall I inform you of the greatest losers in their actions? People whose efforts in the life of this world are misguided while they suppose that they are doing good.' Those are the people who reject their Lord's Signs and the meeting with Him. Their actions will come to nothing and, on the Day of Rising, We will not assign them any weight. (Qur'an, 18:103-105)

The metaphor of what they spend in their life in this world is that of a wind with an icy bite to it which strikes the crops of a people who have wronged themselves and destroys them. Allah did not wrong them; rather it was themselves they were wronging. (Qur'an, 3:117)

As for those who desire the life of this world and its finery, We will give them full payment in it for their actions. They will not be deprived here of their due. But such people will have nothing in the hereafter but the Fire. What they achieved here will come to nothing. What they did will prove to be null and void. (Qur'an, 11:15-16)

THEY WILL RECEIVE PUNISHMENT
BOTH IN THE LIFE OF THIS WORLD
AND IN THE HEREAFTER

They will receive punishment in the life of this world and the punishment of the hereafter is harsher still. They have no defender against Allah. (Qur'an, 13:34)

So Allah made an example of him seizing him with punishment in this world and the hereafter. (Qur'an, 79:25)
