[15:99] And worship your Lord, in order to attain certainty.
[3:60] This is the truth from your Lord; do not harbor any doubts.
[10:94] If you have any doubt regarding what is revealed to you from your Lord, then ask those who read the previous scripture. Indeed, the truth has come to you from your Lord. Do not be with the doubters.
[6:114] Shall I seek other than GOD as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed?* Those who received the scripture recognize that it has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt.
[5:50] Is it the law of the days of ignorance that they seek to uphold? Whose law is better than GOD's for those who have attained certainty?
By nature, human beings are shortsighted, impatient, argumentative, hesitant, doubtful, and arrogant (70:19, 21:37, 75:5, 18:54, 14:9, 7:12). They tend to question everything. They doubt resurrection, Judgment Day, and the Hereafter; they doubt the unseen. They even argue about God and His greatness and infinite grace. Blinded by their ego, falsehood would make more sense to them than knowledge; they are unable to take God's words literally and seriously the way they should be. The Most Merciful provides them with all the means that help them get rid of any shade of doubt. Yet, they continue to exhibit nothing but ignorance and lack of appreciation except a few. These are the ones who steadfastly persevere in seeking guidance, light, righteousness, knowledge, and certainty. They are worthy of all of that, and God knows them all.
[28:56] You cannot guide the ones you love. GOD is the only One who guides in accordance with His will, and in accordance with His knowledge of those who deserve the guidance.
[6:75] We showed Abraham the marvels of the heavens and the earth, and blessed him with certainty:
[21:51] Before that, we granted Abraham his guidance and understanding, for we were fully aware of him.
[21:79] We granted Solomon the correct understanding, though we endowed both of them with wisdom and knowledge. We committed the mountains to serve David in glorifying (God), as well as the birds. This is what we did.
As submitters, we have to go through a long journey. We go through different stages of faith - from submission to belief, and from some doubt to certainty. Our mission on earth is our redemption. The Most Gracious is our Teacher, and His proven word is our guide. Worshiping Him alone is the only path for redemption, and therefore this is the only reason both jinns and humans were brought on earth ; to worship Him and get redeemed. Striving in this direction while steadfastly persevering will progress us on His path from one stage to another until we achieve perfect certainty. Believers are allowed to compete and race to achieve higher ranks- this is God's amazing grace.
[90:4] We created the human being to work hard (to redeem himself).*
[7:174] We thus explain the revelations, to enable the people to redeem themselves.*
[51:55] And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers.
[51:56] I did not create the jinns and the humans except to worship Me alone.
[51:57] I need no provisions from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.
[51:58] GOD is the Provider, the Possessor of all power, the Supreme.
[84:16] I solemnly swear by the rosy dusk.
[84:17] And the night as it spreads.
[84:18] And the moon and its phases.
[84:19] You will move from stage to stage.
[84:20] Why do they not believe?
[84:21] And when the Quran is recited to them, they do not fall prostrate.
[4:95] Not equal are the sedentary among the believers who are not handicapped, and those who strive in the cause of GOD with their money and their lives. GOD exalts the strivers with their money and their lives above the sedentary. For both, GOD promises salvation, but GOD exalts the strivers over the sedentary with a great recompense.
[58:11]...... GOD raises those among you who believe, and those who acquire knowledge to higher ranks. GOD is fully Cognizant of everything you do.
[49:15] Mu'mens (believers) are those who believe in GOD and His messenger, then attain the status of having no doubt whatsoever, and strive with their money and their lives in the cause of GOD. These are the truthful ones.
Submitters are in need to observe their worship practices, follow God’s laws, and do the righteous works that please Him, irrespective of any traces of doubt they might have. This is the only recourse to certainty and can never get accomplished without pursuing the knowledge of the proven truth God has sent us. The whole process will only redeem them, augment their belief, and let their soul grow stronger and their doubt shrink and eventually vanish. The Most Merciful has reassured our hearts by strong oaths and enlightening examples. Only those who choose His path will pursue His guidance & knowledge, witness His proofs & signs, benefit from His reminders & examples, and rejoice in reciting His oaths:
[22:54] Those who are blessed with knowledge will recognize the truth from your Lord, then believe in it, and their hearts will readily accept it. Most assuredly, GOD guides the believers in the right path.
[14:27] GOD strengthens those who believe with the proven word, in this life and in the Hereafter. And GOD sends the transgressors astray. Everything is in accordance with God's will.
[51:23] By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, this is as true as the fact that you speak.
[56:75] I swear by the positions of the stars.
[56:76] This is an oath, if you only knew, that is awesome.
[56:77] This is an honorable Quran.
[56:78] In a protected book.
[56:79] None can grasp it except the sincere.
[75:1] I swear by the Day of Resurrection.
[75:2] And I swear by the blaming soul.
[75:3] Does the human being think that we will not reconstruct his bones?
[75:4] Yes indeed; we are able to reconstruct his finger tip.
[75:5] But the human being tends to believe only what he sees in front of him.
[75:6] He doubts the Day of Resurrection!
[86:12] By the earth that cracks (to grow plants).
[86:13] This is a serious narration.
[86:14] Not to be taken lightly.
[30:19] He produces the live from the dead, and produces the dead from the live, and He revives the land after it had died; you are similarly resurrected.
[41:37] Among His proofs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate before the sun, nor the moon; you shall fall prostrate before the GOD who created them, if you truly worship Him alone.
[41:39] Among His proofs is that you see the land still, then, as soon as we shower it with water, it vibrates with life. Surely, the One who revived it can revive the dead. He is Omnipotent.
[13:2] GOD is the One who raised the heavens without pillars that you can see, then assumed all authority. He committed the sun and the moon, each running (in its orbit) for a predetermined period. He controls all things, and explains the revelations, that you may attain certainty about meeting your Lord.
[41:53] We will show them our proofs in the horizons, and within themselves, until they realize that this is the truth. Is your Lord not sufficient as a witness of all things?
[41:54] Indeed, they are doubtful about meeting their Lord. He is fully aware of all things.
God revealed to our generation and the billions yet to come, the mathematical miracle to remove any doubts about the divine authorship of the Quran. With that comes the assurance about every single detail, miracle, example, warning, word, and letter therein. The Almighty rendered His proven truth at our fingertips to erase any traces of doubt:
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[74:31] We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, "What did GOD mean by this allegory?" GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.
[74:32] Absolutely, (I swear) by the moon.
[74:33] And the night as it passes.
[74:34] And the morning as it shines.
[74:35] This is one of the great miracles.
[74:36] A warning to the human race.
[74:37] For those among you who wish to advance, or regress.
In conclusion, both humans and jinns have been showered with all means and proofs to recognize God, choose His path, pursue His knowledge, and move up from one stage to another towards true belief. A fully detailed Arabic Quran with authenticated words is available to the world as a source of guidance. It is our perseverance in studying Quran, worshiping God, and redeeming & strengthening our souls that will let us eventually achieve certainty, when we can never go backward, or waver. This is the real freedom of the soul.
[73:1] O you cloaked one.
[73:2] Meditate during the night, except rarely.
[73:3] Half of it, or a little less.
[73:4] Or a little more. And read the Quran from cover to cover.
[73:5] We will give you a heavy message.
[73:6] The meditation at night is more effective, and more righteous.
[73:7] You have a lot of time during the day for other matters.
[73:8] You shall commemorate the name of your Lord, to come ever closer and closer to Him.
[73:9] Lord of the east and the west; there is no other god beside Him. You should choose Him as your advocate.
[73:10] And remain steadfast in the face of their utterances, and disregard them in a nice manner.
[30:60] Therefore, you shall steadfastly persevere - for GOD's promise is the truth - and do not be intimidated by those who have not attained certainty.
[15:98] You shall sing the praises of your Lord, and be with the prostrators.
[15:99] And worship your Lord, in order to attain certainty.
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless.
