We then inspired him (Noah): "Make the watercraft under our watchful eyes, and in accordance with our inspiration. When our command comes, and the atmosphere boils up, put on it a pair of every kind, and your family, except those condemned to be doomed. Do not speak to Me on behalf of those who transgressed; they will be drowned" (The Believers 23:27).

O you who believe, permission must be requested by your servants and the children who have not attained puberty (before entering your rooms) in three instances - before the Dawn Prayer, at noon when you change your clothes to rest and after the Night Prayer...(Light 24:58).

5 Daily Prayers - You shall observe the Contact Prayers at both ends of the day, and during the night...(Hood 11:114)... when the sun declines from its highest point at noon, as it moves towards sunset...(The Children of Israel 17:78).

Your Lord is the one God who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then assumed all authority. The night overtakes the day, as it pursues it persistently, and the sun, the moon, and the stars are committed to serve by His commands. Most Exalted is God, Lord of the Universe (The Purgatory 7:54).

Glorifying Him are the seven universes, the earth, and everyone in them. There is nothing that does not glorify Him, but you do not understand their glorification. He is Clement, Forgiver (The Children of Israel 17:44).

"Put your hand in your pocket; it will come out white, without a blemish. These are among nine miracles to Pharaoh and his people, for they are wicked people" (The Ant 27:12).

Whoever does a righteous work receives the reward for ten, and the one who commits a sin is requited for only one. No one suffers the slightest injustice (Livestock 6:160).

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."...(His father said) "Your Lord has thus blessed you, and has given you good news through your dream..."(Joseph 12:4 to 6).

The count of months, as far as God is concerned, is twelve. This has been God’s law, since the day He created the heavens and the earth. Four of them are sacred. This is the perfect religion...(Ultimatum 9:36).
