Free Quran Chapter 12: Joseph (Yousuf)

Learn from GOD that you should never let mistakes, hardships or sinners break you down into a disbeliever. We can learn a lot from Josephs story. He went through hell on earth, but still maintained his faith and good heart. The world kept attacking him, ruining him, taking his freedom, taking everything. But he kept his faith in GOD. He didn’t let the world tear him down. And each and every person lives through this story. Satan wants to break us down. Imagine if humans could corrode, just like steel that rusts. Satan wants to tear us down in a similar way. Satan wants us to give up.

Too much information, better give up? HELL NO. You read, and read, and read. and you study, and study, and study. And you investigate, and you challenge, and you stand up for the truth – even if the whole world is against you. That is how you achieve victory for a life in the hereafter.

Quran Chapter 12: Joseph (Yousuf)

[12:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[12:1] A.L.R. These (letters) are proofs of this profound scripture.*

*12:1 The Quranic initials constitute a major component of a great miracle (App. 1).

[12:2] We have revealed it an Arabic Quran, that you may understand.*

*12:2 Why was the Quran revealed in Arabic? See 41:44 and Appendix 4.

[12:3] We narrate to you the most accurate history through the revelation of this Quran. Before this, you were totally unaware.

[12:4] Recall that Joseph said to his father, “O my father, I saw eleven planets, and the sun, and the moon; I saw them prostrating before me.”

[12:5] He said, “My son, do not tell your brothers about your dream, lest they plot and scheme against you. Surely, the devil is man’s worst enemy.

[12:6] “Your Lord has thus blessed you, and has given you good news through your dream. He has perfected His blessings upon you and upon the family of Jacob, as He did for your ancestors Abraham and Isaac before that. Your Lord is Omniscient, Most Wise.”

[12:7] In Joseph and his brothers there are lessons for the seekers.

[12:8] They said, “Joseph and his brother are favored by our father, and we are in the majority. Indeed, our father is far astray.

Joseph’s Fate Already Decided by God*

[12:9] “Let us kill Joseph, or banish him, that you may get some attention from your father. Afterwards, you can be righteous people.”*

*12:9 We learn from Joseph’s dream that he was destined for a bright future. Thus, while his brothers met to decide his fate, his fate was already decided by God. Everything is done by God (8:17), and is already recorded (57:22).

[12:10] One of them said, “Do not kill Joseph; let us throw him into the abyss of the well. Perhaps some caravan can pick him up, if this is what you decide to do.”

[12:11] They said, “Our father, why do you not trust us with Joseph? We will take good care of him.

[12:12] “Send him with us tomorrow to run and play. We will protect him.”

[12:13] He said, “I worry lest you go away with him, then the wolf may devour him while you are not watching him.”

[12:14] They said, “Indeed, if the wolf devours him, with so many of us around, then we are really losers.”

Believers are Blessed with God’s Assurances

[12:15] When they went away with him, and unanimously decided to throw him into the abyss of the well, we inspired him: “Some day, you will tell them about all this, while they have no idea.”

[12:16] They came back to their father in the evening, weeping.

[12:17] They said, “Our father, we went racing with each other, leaving Joseph with our equipment, and the wolf devoured him. You will never believe us, even if we were telling the truth.”

[12:18] They produced his shirt with fake blood on it. He said, “Indeed, you have conspired with each other to commit a certain scheme. All I can do is resort to a quiet patience. May God help me in the face of your conspiracy.”

Joseph is Taken to Egypt

[12:19] A caravan passed by, and soon sent their waterer. He let down his bucket, then said, “How lucky! There is a boy here!” They took him along as merchandise, and God was fully aware of what they did.

[12:20] They sold him for a cheap price – a few Dirhams – for they did not have any need for him.

[12:21] The one who bought him in Egypt said to his wife, “Take good care of him. Maybe he can help us, or maybe we can adopt him.” We thus established Joseph on earth, and we taught him the interpretation of dreams. God’s command is always done, but most people do not know.

[12:22] When he reached maturity, we endowed him with wisdom and knowledge. We thus reward the righteous.

God Protects the Believers From Sin

[12:23] The lady of the house where he lived tried to seduce him. She closed the doors and said, “I am all yours.” He said, “May God protect me. He is my Lord, who gave me a good home.* The transgressors never succeed.”

*12:23 Joseph worded this statement in such a way that the governor’s wife thought that he was talking about her husband, when in fact he was talking about God.

[12:24] She almost succumbed to him, and he almost succumbed to her, if it were not that he saw a proof from his Lord. We thus diverted evil and sin away from him, for he was one of our devoted servants.

[12:25] The two of them raced towards the door, and, in the process, she tore his garment from the back. They found her husband at the door. She said, “What should be the punishment for one who wanted to molest your wife, except imprisonment or a painful punishment?”

[12:26] He said, “She is the one who tried to seduce me.” A witness from her family suggested: “If his garment is torn from the front, then she is telling the truth and he is a liar.

[12:27] “And if his garment is torn from the back, then she lied, and he is telling the truth.”

[12:28] When her husband saw that his garment was torn from the back, he said, “This is a woman’s scheme. Indeed, your scheming is formidable.

[12:29] “Joseph, disregard this incident. As for you (my wife), you should seek forgiveness for your sin. You have committed an error.”

[12:30] Some women in the city gossiped: “The governor’s wife is trying to seduce her servant. She is deeply in love with him. We see that she has gone astray.”

[12:31] When she heard of their gossip, she invited them, prepared for them a comfortable place, and gave each of them a knife. She then said to him, “Enter their room.” When they saw him, they so admired him, that they cut their hands.* They said, “Glory be to God, this is not a human being; this is an honorable angel.”

*12:31 This is the same word used in 5:38 regarding the hand of the thief, and the sum of sura and verse numbers (12+31 and 5+38) are the same. Therefore, the thief’s hand should be marked, not severed as practiced by the corrupted Islam (see Footnote 5:38).

[12:32] She said, “This is the one you blamed me for falling in love with. I did indeed try to seduce him, and he refused. Unless he does what I command him to do, he will surely go to prison, and will be debased.”

[12:33] He said, “My Lord, the prison is better than giving in to them. Unless You divert their scheming from me, I may desire them and behave like the ignorant ones.”

[12:34] His Lord answered his prayer and diverted their scheming from him. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.

[12:35] Later, they saw to it, despite the clear proofs, that they should imprison him for awhile.

[12:36] Two young men were in the prison with him. One of them said, “I saw (in my dream) that I was making wine,” and the other said, “I saw myself carrying bread on my head, from which the birds were eating. Inform us of the interpretation of these dreams. We see that you are righteous.”

[12:37] He said, “If any food is provided to you, I can inform you about it before you receive it. This is some of the knowledge bestowed upon me by my Lord. I have forsaken the religion of people who do not believe in God, and with regard to the Hereafter, they are really disbelievers.

[12:38] “And I followed instead the religion of my ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We never set up any idols beside God. Such is the blessing from God upon us and upon the people, but most people are unappreciative.

[12:39] “O my prison mates, are several gods better, or God alone, the One, the Supreme?

[12:40] “You do not worship beside Him except innovations that you have made up, you and your parents. God has never authorized such idols. All ruling belongs to God, and He has ruled that you shall not worship except Him. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.

[12:41] “O my prison mates, one of you will be the wine butler for his lord, while the other will be crucified – the birds will eat from his head. This settles the matter about which you have inquired.”

[12:42] He then said to the one to be saved “Remember me at your lord.”* Thus, the devil caused him to forget his Lord, and, consequently, he remained in prison a few more years.

*12:42 When Joseph begged his companion to intercede with the king on his behalf, he exhibited dependence on other than God to be saved from the prison. This does not befit a true believer, and such a serious slip cost Joseph a few years in the prison. We learn from the Quran that only God can relieve any hardship that might befall us. A true believer trusts in God and depends totally on Him alone (1:5, 6:17, 8:17, 10:107).

The King’s Dream

[12:43] The king said, “I saw seven fat cows being devoured by seven skinny cows, and seven green spikes (of wheat), and others shriveled. O my elders, advise me regarding my dream, if you know how to interpret the dreams.”

[12:44] They said, “Nonsense dreams. When it comes to the interpretation of dreams, we are not knowledgeable.”

[12:45] The one who was saved (from the prison) said, now that he finally remembered, “I can tell you its interpretation, so send me (to Joseph).”

Joseph Interprets the King’s Dream

[12:46] “Joseph my friend, inform us about seven fat cows being devoured by seven skinny cows, and seven green spikes, and others shriveled. I wish to go back with some information for the people.”

[12:47] He said, “What you cultivate during the next seven years, when the time of harvest comes, leave the grains in their spikes, except for what you eat.

[12:48] “After that, seven years of drought will come, which will consume most of what you stored for them.

[12:49] “After that, a year will come that brings relief for the people, and they will, once again, press juice.”

[12:50] The king said, “Bring him to me.” When the messenger came to him, he said, “Go back to your lord and ask him to investigate the women who cut their hands. My Lord is fully aware of their schemes.”

[12:51] (The king) said (to the women), “What do you know about the incident when you tried to seduce Joseph?” They said, “God forbid; we did not know of anything evil committed by him.” The wife of the governor said, “Now the truth has prevailed. I am the one who tried to seduce him, and he was the truthful one.

[12:52] “I hope that he will realize that I never betrayed him in his absence, for God does not bless the schemes of the betrayers.

[12:53] “I do not claim innocence for myself. The self is an advocate of vice, except for those who have attained mercy from my Lord. My Lord is Forgiver, Most Merciful.”

Joseph Attains Prominence

[12:54] The king said, “Bring him to me, so I can hire him to work for me.” When he talked with him, he said, “Today, you have a prominent position with us.”

[12:55] He said, “Make me the treasurer, for I am experienced in this area and knowledgeable.”

[12:56] We thus established Joseph on earth, ruling as he wished. We shower our mercy upon whomever we will, and we never fail to recompense the righteous.

[12:57] Additionally, the reward in the Hereafter is even better for those who believe and lead a righteous life.

[12:58] Joseph’s brothers came; when they entered, he recognized them, while they did not recognize him.

[12:59] After he provided them with their provisions, he said, “Next time, bring with you your half-brother. Do you not see that I give full measure, and treat you generously?

[12:60] “If you fail to bring him to me, you will get no share from me; you will not even come close.”

[12:61] They said, “We will negotiate with his father about him. We will surely do this.”

[12:62] He then instructed his assistants: “Put their goods back in their bags. When they find them upon their return to their family, they may come back sooner.”

[12:63] When they returned to their father, they said, “Our father, we can no longer get any provisions, unless you send our brother with us. We will take good care of him.”

[12:64] He said, “Shall I trust you with him, as I trusted you with his brother before that? God is the best Protector, and, of all the merciful ones, He is the Most Merciful.”

[12:65] When they opened their bags, they found their goods returned to them. They said, “Our father, what more can we ask for? Here are our goods returned to us. We can thus provide for our family, protect our brother, and receive one more camel-load. This is certainly a profitable deal.”

[12:66] He said, “I will not send him with you, unless you give me a solemn pledge before God that you will bring him back, unless you are utterly overwhelmed.” When they gave him their solemn pledge, he said, “God is witnessing everything we say.”

[12:67] And he said, “O my sons, do not enter from one door; enter through separate doors. However, I cannot save you from anything that is predetermined by God. To God belongs all judgments. I trust in Him, and in Him shall all the trusters put their trust.”

Jacob Senses Joseph

[12:68] When they went (to Joseph), they entered in accordance with their father’s instructions. Although this could not change anything decreed by God, Jacob had a private reason for asking them to do this. For he possessed certain knowledge that we taught him, but most people do not know.

Back in Egypt

[12:69] When they entered Joseph’s place, he brought his brother closer to him and said, “I am your brother; do not be saddened by their actions.”

Joseph Keeps His Brother

[12:70] When he provided them with their provisions, he placed the drinking cup in his brother’s bag, then an announcer announced: “The owners of this caravan are thieves.”

[12:71] They said, as they came towards them, “What did you lose?”

[12:72] They said, “We lost the king’s cup. Anyone who returns it will receive an extra camel-load; I personally guarantee this.”

[12:73] They said, “By God, you know full well that we did not come here to commit evil, nor are we thieves.”

[12:74] They said, “What is the punishment for the thief, if you are liars?”

[12:75] They said, “The punishment, if it is found in his bag, is that the thief belongs to you. We thus punish the guilty.”

[12:76] He then started by inspecting their containers, before getting to his brother’s container, and he extracted it out of his brother’s container. We thus perfected the scheme for Joseph; he could not have kept his brother if he applied the king’s law. But that was the will of God. We exalt whomever we choose to higher ranks. Above every knowledgeable one, there is one who is even more knowledgeable.

[12:77] They said, “If he stole, so did a brother of his in the past.” Joseph concealed his feelings in himself, and did not give them any clue. He said (to himself), “You are really bad. God is fully aware of your accusations.”

[12:78] They said, “O you noble one, he has a father who is elderly; would you take one of us in his place? We see that you are a kind man.”

[12:79] He said, “God forbid that we should take other than the one in whose possession we found our goods. Otherwise, we would be unjust.”

[12:80] When they despaired of changing his mind, they conferred together. Their eldest said, “Do you realize that your father has taken a solemn pledge from you before God? In the past you lost Joseph. I am not leaving this place until my father gives me permission, or until God judges for me; He is the best Judge.

Back In Palestine

[12:81] “Go back to your father and tell him… `Our father, your son has committed a theft. We know for sure, because this is what we have witnessed. This was an unexpected occurrence.

[12:82] `You may ask the community where we were, and the caravan that came back with us. We are telling the truth.’ “

[12:83] He said, “Indeed, you have conspired to carry out a certain scheme. Quiet patience is my only recourse. May God bring them all back to me. He is the Omniscient, Most Wise.”

[12:84] He turned away from them, saying, “I am grieving over Joseph.” His eyes turned white from grieving so much; he was truly sad.

[12:85] They said, “By God, you will keep on grieving over Joseph until you become ill, or until you die.”

[12:86] He said, “I simply complain to God about my dilemma and grief, for I know from God what you do not know.

[12:87] “O my sons, go fetch Joseph and his brother, and never despair of God’s grace. None despairs of God’s grace except the disbelieving people.”

Israel Goes to Egypt

[12:88] When they entered (Joseph’s) quarters, they said, “O you noble one, we have suffered a lot of hardship, along with our family, and we have brought inferior goods. But we hope that you will give us full measure and be charitable to us. God rewards the charitable.”

[12:89] He said, “Do you recall what you did to Joseph and his brother when you were ignorant?”

[12:90] They said, “You must be Joseph.” He said, “I am Joseph, and here is my brother. God has blessed us. That is because if one leads a righteous life, and steadfastly perseveres, God never fails to reward the righteous.”

[12:91] They said, “By God, God has truly preferred you over us. We were definitely wrong.”

[12:92] He said, “There is no blame upon you today. May God forgive you. Of all the merciful ones, He is the Most Merciful.

[12:93] “Take this shirt of mine; when you throw it on my father’s face, his vision will be restored. Bring your whole family and come back to me.”

*12:93 This marks the beginning of the Children of Israel in Egypt. Moses led them out of Egypt a few centuries later.

[12:94] Even before the caravan arrived, their father said, “I can sense the smell of Joseph. Will someone enlighten me?”

[12:95] They said, “By God, you are still in your old confusion.”

[12:96] When the bearer of good news arrived, he threw (the shirt) on his face, whereupon his vision was restored. He said, “Did I not tell you that I knew from God what you did not know?”

[12:97] They said, “Our father, pray for our forgiveness; we were wrong indeed.”

[12:98] He said, “I will implore my Lord to forgive you; He is the Forgiver, Most Merciful.”

In Egypt

[12:99] When they entered Joseph’s quarters, he embraced his parents, saying, “Welcome to Egypt. God willing, you will be safe here.”

[12:100] He raised his parents upon the throne. They fell prostrate before him. He said, “O my father, this is the fulfillment of my old dream. My Lord has made it come true. He has blessed me, delivered me from the prison, and brought you from the desert, after the devil had driven a wedge between me and my brothers. My Lord is Most Kind towards whomever He wills. He is the Knower, the Most Wise.”

[12:101] “My Lord, You have given me kingship and taught me the interpretation of dreams. Initiator of the heavens and the earth; You are my Lord and Master in this life and in the Hereafter. Let me die as a submitter, and count me with the righteous.”

[12:102] This is news from the past that we reveal to you. You were not present when they made their unanimous decision (to throw Joseph in the well), as they conspired together.

The Majority of People Do Not Believe

[12:103] Most people, no matter what you do, will not believe.

[12:104] You are not asking them for any money; you simply deliver this reminder for all the people.

[12:105] So many proofs in the heavens and the earth are given to them, but they pass by them, heedlessly!

The Majority of Believers Destined for Hell

[12:106] The majority of those who believe in God do not do so without committing idol worship.

[12:107] Have they guaranteed that an overwhelming retribution from God will not strike them, or the Hour will not come to them suddenly, when they least expect it?

[12:108] Say, “This is my path: I invite to God, on the basis of a clear proof, and so do those who follow me. God be glorified. I am not an idol worshiper.”

[12:109] We did not send before you except men whom we inspired, chosen from the people of various communities. Did they not roam the earth and see the consequences for those before them? The abode of the Hereafter is far better for those who lead a righteous life. Would you then understand?

Victory, Ultimately, Belongs to the Believers

[12:110] Just when the messengers despair, and think that they had been rejected, our victory comes to them. We then save whomever we choose, while our retribution for the guilty people is unavoidable.

The Quran is All We Need

[12:111] In their history, there is a lesson for those who possess intelligence. This is not fabricated Hadith; this (Quran) confirms all previous scriptures, provides the details of everything, and is a beacon and mercy for those who believe.

Free Quran Chapter 45: Kneeling (Al-Jatheyah)

Learn from GOD that proof is for believers, those who are certain and those who understand. They deserve it. One of the biggest misconception among disbelievers is the belief that they deserve evidence. This is far from the truth and it is the reason why they get stuck in disbelief. This mentality is based on the ego, and as long as you have an ego then you can never get close to GOD. There is only one way to get out of disbelief, which is to actually do the required research. This counts as searching for the truth and it is then best to kill ones ego so that personal opinion doesn’t corrupt the facts.

But does this alone makes a person worthy of proof? Not really. It does make you worthy of guidance and it is that guidance that slowly gets you closer to GOD. The closer you get the more tests are thrown your way. This process continues until you pass and understand the tests. Failing to pass the tests is not the end of the world, as long as you admit that you did indeed fail and understand where you must do better. Anyhow, after a while, GOD becomes an unquestionable fact to you and only then does GOD reveal proofs. Personal proofs that you can understand. It would take you days to explain your personal proofs. So don’t waste your time on trying to convince disbelievers.

Quran Chapter 45: Kneeling (Al-Jatheyah)

[45:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[45:1] H. M.

[45:2] The revelation of this scripture is from God, the Almighty, Most Wise.

[45:3] The heavens and the earth are full of proofs for the believers.

[45:4] Also in your creation, and the creation of all the animals, there are proofs for people who are certain.

[45:5] Also, the alternation of the night and the day, and the provisions that God sends down from the sky to revive dead lands, and the manipulation of the winds; all these are proofs for people who understand.

Which Hadith?*

[45:6] These are God’s revelations that we recite to you truthfully. In which Hadith other than God and His revelations do they believe?*

[45:7] Woe to every fabricator, guilty.*

*45:6-7 God condemns “Hadith” by name, and informs us that it is a blasphemous fabrication.

[45:8] The one who hears God’s revelations recited to him, then insists arrogantly on his way, as if he never heard them. Promise him a painful retribution.

[45:9] When he learns anything about our revelations, he mocks them. These have incurred a shameful retribution.

[45:10] Awaiting them is Gehenna. Their earnings will not help them, nor the idols they had set up beside God. They have incurred a terrible retribution.

[45:11] This is a beacon, and those who disbelieve in these revelations of their Lord have incurred condemnation and a painful retribution.

[45:12] God is the One who committed the sea in your service, so that the ships can roam it in accordance with His laws. You thus seek His provisions, that you may be appreciative.

[45:13] He committed in your service everything in the heavens and the earth; all from Him. These are proofs for people who reflect.

[45:14] Tell those who believed to forgive those who do not expect the days of God. He will fully pay everyone for whatever they have earned.

[45:15] Whoever works righteousness does so for his own good, and whoever works evil does so to his own detriment. To your Lord you will be returned.

[45:16] We have given the Children of Israel the scripture, wisdom, and prophethood, and provided them with good provisions; we bestowed upon them more blessings than any other people.

[45:17] We have given them herein clear commandments. Ironically, they did not dispute this until the knowledge had come to them. This is due to jealousy on their part. Surely, your Lord will judge them on the Day of Resurrection regarding everything they have disputed.

[45:18] We then appointed you to establish the correct laws; you shall follow this, and do not follow the wishes of those who do not know.

[45:19] They cannot help you at all against God. It is the transgressors who ally themselves with one another, while God is the Lord of the righteous.

[45:20] This provides enlightenments for the people, and guidance, and mercy for those who are certain.

[45:21] Do those who work evil expect that we will treat them in the same manner as those who believe and lead a righteous life? Can their life and their death be the same?* Wrong indeed is their judgment.

*45:21 We now realize that the righteous do not really die – they go straight to Heaven (16:32) – while the unrighteous are beaten up by the angels of death (8:50 & 47:27).

[45:22] God created the heavens and the earth for a specific purpose, in order to pay each soul for whatever it earned, without the least injustice.*

*45:22 God granted us this life as a precious chance to redeem ourselves, denounce ancient alliance with Satan, and rejoin God’s kingdom. See Introduction and Appendix 7.

Common Form of Idolatry: The Ego As A god

[45:23] Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

[45:24] They said, “We only live this life; we live and die and only time causes our death!” They have no sure knowledge about this; they only conjecture.

[45:25] When our revelations are recited to them, clearly, their only argument is to say, “Bring back our forefathers, if you are truthful.”

[45:26] Say, “God has granted you life, then He puts you to death, then He will summon you to the Day of Resurrection, which is inevitable. But most people do not know.”

[45:27] To God belongs all sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. The day the Hour (Judgment) comes to pass, that is when the falsifiers lose.

Kneeling

[45:28] You will see every community kneeling. Every community will be called to view their record. Today, you get paid for everything you have done.

[45:29] This is our record; it utters the truth about you. We have been recording everything you did.

[45:30] As for those who believe and work righteousness, their Lord will admit them into His mercy. This is the great triumph.

[45:31] As for those who disbelieve: “Were not My revelations recited to you, but you turned arrogant and were wicked people?”

[45:32] When it is proclaimed that God’s promise is the truth and that the Hour (of Judgment) is inevitable, you said, “We do not know what the Hour is! We are full of conjecture about it; we are not certain.”

[45:33] The evils of their works will become evident to them, and the very things they mocked will come back and haunt them.

[45:34] It will be proclaimed: “Today we forget you, just as you forgot the meeting of this day. Your abode is the hellfire, and you will have no helpers.

[45:35] “This is because you took God’s revelations in vain, and were preoccupied with the first life.” Consequently, they will never exit therefrom, nor will they be excused.

[45:36] To God belongs all praise; Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth, Lord of the universe.

[45:37] To Him belongs all supremacy in the heavens and the earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

Free Quran Chapter 50: Q. (Qaf)

Learn from GOD that disbelievers are aggressive, they forbid charity, an example is that they oppose helping refugees. We don’t have to guess who is good and who is bad. It is very simple to recognize a bad person, one of their trait is that they are aggressive. Both in their behavior and in their words. Always attacking people, physically or through words. It is hard to label them as belonging to a specific idea because they exist in every religion, every political ideology and basically in every aspect of life. They use aggression to try and silence you in debates and daily life. They always target your person, personality, private life or mistakes in your past. This happens because their ego got hurt by the truth.

Another trait of bad people is that they forbid charity. I once worked at a place where I – during lunch – expressed an interest in building machines that purified water, which I would then give them away to poor communities around the world, for free. Almost everyone – 15 people! – questioned why I would want to do such a thing and tried to convince me that it is not my responsibility to help other people. Their words were poison and evil, it made me feel sick to my soul. They were mostly atheists and agnostics (This was in Sweden, a secular and apathetic country), but there were also three Christians.

This knowledge from GOD helps us realize without a question that— people, political parties and religions who oppose helping those who flee hardships and oppression; are evil! They are disbelievers, even if they are religious, peaceful and not “aggressive”.

Now we know how to recognize evil people, even if they don’t seem evil, they hide behind law-making and try to commit evil through the legal system by making immigration as difficult as possible. We also now know that people who attack us personally, physically or verbally; are aggressive – and thus disbelievers.

GOD wants believers to be peaceful and understanding, good listeners so they can understand other people which makes them able to help others by explaining in the best possible manner. That is how you move society forward, however, disbelievers will make a society stuck in time, their level of intelligence would be as if they were committing incest. After a few generations, you will end up with a community that is comparable to insanity.

Quran Chapter 50: Q. (Qaf)

[50:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[50:1] Q., and the glorious Quran.*

*50:1 See Appendix 1 for the awesome miracles connected with the Initial “Q.”

[50:2] They found it strange that a warner from among them came to them! The disbelievers said, “This is really strange.

[50:3] “After we die and become dust; this is impossible.”

[50:4] We are fully aware of anyone of them who gets consumed by the earth; we have an accurate record.

[50:5] They rejected the truth when it came to them; they are utterly confused.

[50:6] Have they not looked at the sky above them, and how we constructed it and adorned it, without a flaw?

[50:7] And we created the earth, and scattered on it mountains, and grew in it all kinds of beautiful plants.

[50:8] This is an enlightenment, and a reminder for every pious worshiper.

[50:9] And we sent from the sky blessed water, to grow with it gardens and grains to be harvested.

[50:10] Tall date palms, with clustered fruit.

[50:11] Provisions for the people. And we revive with it dead lands; you are similarly resurrected.

[50:12] Disbelieving before them were the people of Noah, the dwellers of Russ, and Thamoud.

[50:13] And `Ãd, Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot.

[50:14] And the dwellers of the woods, and the people of Tubba`. All of them disbelieved the messengers and, consequently, My retribution befell them.

[50:15] Were we too burdened by the first creation? Is this why they doubt resurrection?

[50:16] We created the human, and we know what he whispers to himself. We are closer to him than his jugular vein.

[50:17] Two recording (angels), at right and at left, are constantly recording.

[50:18] Not an utterance does he utter without an alert witness.

[50:19] Finally, the inevitable coma of death comes; this is what you tried to evade.

[50:20] The horn is blown; this is the promised day.

[50:21] Every soul comes with a herder and a witness.

[50:22] You used to be oblivious to this. We now remove your veil; today, your vision is (as strong as) steel.

[50:23] The companion said, “Here is my formidable testimony.”*

*50:23-28 Your life-time companion witnesses everything you do. See Appendix 7.

[50:24] Throw into Gehenna every stubborn disbeliever.

[50:25] Forbidder of charity, aggressor, full of doubt.

[50:26] He set up besides God another god. Throw him into severe retribution.

[50:27] His companion said, “Our Lord, I did not mislead him; he was far astray.”

[50:28] He said, “Do not feud in front of Me; I have sufficiently warned you.

[50:29] “Nothing can be changed now. I am never unjust towards the people.”

[50:30] That is the day when we ask Hell, “Have you had enough?” It will say, “Give me more.”

[50:31] Paradise will be offered to the righteous, readily.

[50:32] This is what was promised to every repenter, steadfast.

[50:33] They reverenced the Most Gracious, in their privacy, and came wholeheartedly.

[50:34] Enter it in peace; this is the Day of Eternity.

[50:35] They get anything they wish therein, and we have even more.

[50:36] Many a generation before them, who were more powerful, we annihilated. They searched the land; did they find an escape?

[50:37] This should be a lesson for everyone who possesses a mind, or is able to hear and witness.

[50:38] We have created the heavens and the earth, and everything between them in six days, and no fatigue touched us.

[50:39] Therefore, be patient in the face of their utterances, and praise and glorify your Lord before sunrise, and before sunset.

[50:40] During the night you shall meditate on His name, and after prostrating.

[50:41] Prepare for the day when the caller calls from a place that is near.

[50:42] When they hear the inevitable cry; that is the day you come out.

[50:43] We are the ones who control life and death; to us is the final destiny.

[50:44] The day will come when the earth cracks in a hurry, giving rise to them. Such summoning is easy for us to do.

[50:45] We are fully aware of everything they utter, while you have no power over them. Therefore, remind with this Quran, those who reverence My warnings.

Free Quran Chapter 56: The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe’ah)

Learn from GOD that only the sincere can understand the Quran. Disbelievers don’t deserve guidance. A lot of people believe they are entitled to the truth. Which is false. Guidance comes at a great price, and that price is your ego. You have to kill your ego and put all your trust in GOD ALONE. Stop relying on your so called “intellect” trust me, humans are not intelligent, not even the most genius person is intelligent, at least not in comparison with GOD. So don’t let your “smartness” get to your head. I see it too often among people, they let “intelligence” get to their head. But in reality it just serves to delude them.

I’m not saying that you should stop thinking, no, on the contrary, I’m actually saying the opposite, think to the best of your abilities. The problem with “intelligence” however, is that it can give you a false impression of yourself, tricking you into thinking that you already know something. So in a way you own intelligence can misguide you. Thinking on the other hand is not depending on ones own intelligence, because you are actually thinking, you are exploring, you are challenging your intelligence, you are challenging everything that you already know. There are a lot of intelligent people out there… but that doesn’t mean they possess thinking skills, instead they rely on bigotry. Because everything you believe in can change because of one word or a different perspective.

In this chapter you also learn that there are different ranks, each attained depending on how much righteous work you have put in, such as the Contact prayers, charity, fasting, and such. It might be hard right now to understand the reality and heaviness of all of this. I mean think about it, GOD??? exists???, that’s an amazing reality. But you might not feel it right now, but you will. GOD exists, and this whole test is real, it is happening. And you should not feel bad if you don’t feel it right now. It is not about time spent in belief, or being brainwashed, or being completely high up there in the clouds. It is about understanding. It took me 10 years to reach this stage of belief. The first 9 years don’t even feel like I really believed, it was just research, testing and being busy with life. But again, I don’t feel like I was a real believer yesterday either. Because every new day brings me closer to GOD. But I also think this has to do with the fact that we have to be aware of GOD at all times and constantly improve ourselves to become better people. Your faith becomes reality the more you witness this world and GOD’s commandments in action.

Think about this, lets say I tell you that there is a rabbit behind the tree, at first you might not believe me, so you go and check behind the tree, and it turns out there really was a rabbit behind the tree, this means you now believe me! It is similar with GOD’s commandments, test them out, follow them, see them at work, see the consequences for not obeying GOD. And soon you will understand that GOD is the only reality and truth there is. You can do this even if you are an atheist, you like challenges right? You only believe in science where one conducts experiments to conclude a truth? Well, that’s great, study GOD’s commandments, experiment, test them out and you will soon realize that GOD is a fact.

Quran Chapter 56: The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe’ah)

[56:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[56:1] When the inevitable comes to pass.

[56:2] Nothing can stop it from happening.

[56:3] It will lower some, and raise others.

[56:4] The earth will be shaken up.

[56:5] The mountains will be wiped out.

[56:6] As if they never existed.

[56:7] You will be stratified into three kinds.

[56:8] Those who deserved bliss will be in bliss.

[56:9] Those who deserved misery will be in misery.

[56:10] Then there is the elite of the elite.

[56:11] They are those who will be closest (to God).

[56:12] In the gardens of bliss.

[56:13] Many from the first generations.*

[56:14] Few from the later generations.

[56:15] On luxurious furnishings.

[56:16] Enjoying everything, they will be neighbors.

[56:17] Serving them will be immortal servants.

[56:18] With cups, pitchers and pure drinks.

[56:19] They never run out, nor do they get bored.

[56:20] Fruits of their choice.

[56:21] Meat of birds that they desire.

[56:22] Beautiful mates.

[56:23] Like protected pearls.

[56:24] Rewards for their works.

[56:25] They never hear any nonsense therein, nor sinful utterances.

[56:26] Only the utterance: “Peace, peace.”

The Lower Heaven

[56:27] Those of the right side, will be on the right side.

[56:28] In lush orchards.

[56:29] Fragrant fruits.

[56:30] Extended shade.

[56:31] Abundant water.

[56:32] Many fruits.

[56:33] Never ending; never forbidden.

[56:34] Luxurious furnishings.

[56:35] We create for them mates.

[56:36] Never previously touched.

[56:37] Perfectly matched.

[56:38] For those on the right side.

[56:39] Many from the early generations.

[56:40] Many from the later generations.*

*56:13-40 People who believe and nourish their souls through worshiping God alone are destined for the High Heaven. The contemporary followers of each messenger invariably suffer persecution from the traditionalists and adherents of the corrupted religion. Thus, they have a special place reserved for them in the High Heaven. All people who die before the age of 40 go to the Lower Heaven, at least (46:15).

Hell

[56:41] Those of the left, will be on the left.

[56:42] In misery and inferno.

[56:43] Even their shade is hot.

[56:44] Never cool, never tolerable.

[56:45] They used to be rich.

[56:46] They insisted on the great blasphemy.

[56:47] They said, “After we die and turn to dust and bones, we get resurrected?

[56:48] “Does this include our forefathers?”

[56:49] Say, “The early generations and the later generations.

[56:50] “Will be summoned to a meeting on a predetermined day.

[56:51] “Then you, O disbelieving strayers.

[56:52] “Will eat from the trees of bitterness.

[56:53] “Filling your bellies therefrom.

[56:54] “Then drinking on top of it hellish drinks.

[56:55] “Then adding drinks of sand.”

[56:56] Such is their share on the Day of Judgment.

Reflections

[56:57] We have created you, if you could only believe!

[56:58] Have you noted the semen that you produce?

[56:59] Did you create it, or did we?

[56:60] We have predetermined death for you. Nothing can stop us –

[56:61] from substituting new generations in your place, and establishing what you do not know.

[56:62] You know about the first creation. Do you not remember?

[56:63] Have you noted the crops you reap?

[56:64] Did you grow them, or did we?

[56:65] If we will, we can turn it into hay. Then you will lament:

[56:66] “We lost.

[56:67] “We are deprived.”

[56:68] Have you noted the water you drink?

[56:69] Did you send it down from the clouds, or did we?

[56:70] If we will, we can make it salty. You should be thankful.

[56:71] Have you noted the fire you ignite?

[56:72] Did you initiate its tree, or did we?

[56:73] We rendered it a reminder, and a useful tool for the users.

[56:74] You shall glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.

Only the Sincere Can Understand the Quran

[56:75] I swear by the positions of the stars.

[56:76] This is an oath, if you only knew, that is awesome.*

*56:75-76 Our universe, the smallest and innermost of seven universes, contains a billion galaxies, a billion trillion stars, spanning billions of light years. These uncountable decillions of heavenly bodies maintain their orbits in a divinely controlled precision. The more we learn, the more we realize how awesome this oath is. See Appendix 6.

[56:77] This is an honorable Quran.

[56:78] In a protected book.

[56:79] None can grasp it except the sincere.*

*56:79 The insincere who are not satisfied with the Quran alone are divinely prevented from understanding the Quran. This concept is repeated throughout the Quran (17:45-46, 18:57). Consequently, they cannot understand this verse. For example, compare this translation of 7:3, 17:46, 41:44, and 56:79 with other translations.

[56:80] A revelation from the Lord of the universe.

[56:81] Are you disregarding this narration?

[56:82] Do you make it your business that you disbelieve?

[56:83] When the time comes and it (your soul) reaches your throat –

[56:84] you will then look around.

[56:85] We are closer to it than you are, but you do not see.

[56:86] If it is true that you do not owe any accounting –

[56:87] why do you not restore (your soul), if you are truthful?

[56:88] If he is one of those close to Me –

[56:89] then joy, flowers, and gardens of bliss.

[56:90] And if he is one of the right –

[56:91] peace is the lot of those on the right.

[56:92] But if he is one of the disbelievers, the strayers –

[56:93] then an abode of inferno –

[56:94] and burning in Hell.

[56:95] This is the absolute truth.

[56:96] You shall glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.

Free Quran Chapter 83: The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)

Learn from GOD that you shouldn’t trust disbelievers, they disbelieve because they love sinning. Never put yourself in a situation where your rights is in the hand of a disbeliever, for example if you lend someone money and a disbeliever is the middle-hand. Also never lend money to disbelievers. They don’t have any morals, they will promise to pay back but they actually never will, not unless you force it out of them. Another sign of disbelievers is that they cheat a lot whenever possible. For example when buying a product they want it as cheap as possible, but then when they sell that product, they suddenly want more than what they paid for. This is of course not about trade and other such business where companies buy products directly from the producer or from a merchant. That’s completely different and there is nothing wrong with that. The big issue is the mentality of lying to someone about the value of a product.

Disbelievers are very evil. You could be outside one day enjoying a peaceful walk, then when a disbeliever recognizes you, they will suddenly do what they can to ruin your moment. For example they might insult you, make fun of you, shout out something bad about you so everyone can hear it. There are many things disbelievers do to hurt believers just to satisfy their own ego and arrogance.

Quran Chapter 83: The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)

[83:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[83:1] Woe to the cheaters.

[83:2] Who demand full measure when receiving from the people.

[83:3] But when giving them the measures or weights, they cheat.

[83:4] Do they not know that they will be resurrected?

[83:5] On a tremendous day?

[83:6] That is the day when all people will stand before the Lord of the universe.

Numerically Structured Books

[83:7] Indeed, the book of the wicked is in Sijjeen.

[83:8] Do you know what Sijjeen is?

[83:9] A numerically structured book.

[83:10] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[83:11] They do not believe in the Day of Judgment.

[83:12] None disbelieves therein except the transgressor, the sinful.

[83:13] When our revelations are recited to him, he says, “Tales from the past!”

[83:14] Indeed, their hearts have become shielded by their sins.

[83:15] Indeed, they will be isolated, on that day, from their Lord.

[83:16] Then they will be thrown into Hell.

[83:17] They will be told, “This is what you used to deny.”

[83:18] Indeed, the book of the righteous will be in `Elleyyeen.

[83:19] Do you know what `Elleyyeen is?

[83:20] A numerically structured book.

[83:21] To be witnessed by those close to Me.

[83:22] The righteous have deserved bliss.

[83:23] On luxurious furnishings they watch.

[83:24] You recognize in their faces the joy of bliss.

[83:25] Their drinks will be spiced with nectar.

[83:26] Its spice is like musk. This is what the competitors should compete for.

[83:27] Mixed into it will be special flavors.

[83:28] From a spring that is reserved for those close to Me.

[83:29] The wicked used to laugh at those who believed.

[83:30] When they passed by them, they used to poke fun.

[83:31] When they got together with their people, they used to joke.

[83:32] Whenever they saw them, they said, “These people are far astray!

[83:33] “They have no such thing as (invisible) guards.”

[83:34] Today, those who believed are laughing at the disbelievers.

[83:35] On luxurious furnishings they watch.

[83:36] Most assuredly, the disbelievers are requited for what they did.

Free Quran Chapter 85: The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)

Learn from GOD that disbelievers are evil and should not have political nor social power over believers. If you pay close attention to the social and political climate you will then see a pattern. Wherever the power is secular, liberal or atheist oriented – a vast amount of evil will be promoted. Drugs are legalized. Abortion is legalized. Homosexuality is legalized. Such evil even go as far as legalizing same sex marriage. Marriage is a religious commandment by GOD to prevent immorality. Yet these evil societies taint marriage and turn it into something immoral itself. Disbelievers know no limits and will spread their evil to every part of society. In this chapter we learn about a disbelieving community that went as far as having a tradition where they would catch believers and throw them into fire, then sit around the fire and celebrate their death. It might be hard for disbelievers to do this in today’s modern world and get away with it. But instead they have other methods of killing believers. For example, they will inspire children to rebel against their parents, this way the believers will have children who don’t believe in GOD. Then after a few generations there will be no more believers. Another way is by legalizing various harmful things, such as abortion, drugs and much more. This way they can inspire your children to stray. They will create a society that seduces believers away from GOD. This is how disbelievers slowly kill the believers. It is therefore very important that believers are never under the authority of disbelievers. For example in some countries, if you kick out homosexuals from your store, then the government will shut down your business and even force you to pay compensation that will leave you broke for the rest of your life. This way the disbelievers can force the believers to accept evil and immorality. The only way for believers to survive is by always being in power or having enough power to defend themselves in case society or government tries to oppress the believers into accepting evil. It is therefore very important that you always participate in your community both socially and politically so you can fight back against evil. GOD teaches us that we are the authority, not government, government is a man-made legal structure that serves the people to maintain order. However, when the government turns to evil, and no peaceful talks, debate nor voting can change it, then the believers must either emigrate elsewhere, or create their own new government. Fighting the evil government is only allowed after you have tried everything else and the evil government attacks you first or tries to oppress you. It is a GOD given right to live a righteous life and practice your religion freely, and you must never allow anyone to oppress you.

[85:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[85:1] The sky and its galaxies.

[85:2] The promised day.

[85:3] The witness and the witnessed.

[85:4] Woe to the people of the canyon.

[85:5] They ignited a blazing fire.

[85:6] Then sat around it.

[85:7] To watch the burning of the believers.

[85:8] They hated them for no other reason than believing in God, the Almighty, the Praiseworthy.

[85:9] To Him belongs the kingship of the heavens and the earth. And God witnesses all things.

[85:10] Surely, those who persecute the believing men and women, then fail to repent, have incurred the retribution of Gehenna; they have incurred the retribution of burning.

[85:11] Surely, those who believed and led a righteous life, have deserved gardens with flowing streams. This is the greatest triumph.

[85:12] Indeed, your Lord’s blow is severe.

[85:13] He is the One who initiates and repeats.

[85:14] And He is the Forgiving, Most Kind.

[85:15] Possessor of the glorious throne.

[85:16] Doer of whatever He wills.

[85:17] Did you note the history of the troops?

[85:18] Pharaoh and Thamoud?

[85:19] Those who disbelieve are plagued with denial.

[85:20] God is fully aware of them.

[85:21] Indeed, it is a glorious Quran.

[85:22] In a preserved master tablet.
