"The purpose of the human experience is for the Soul to blossom in human form here on earth, rather than finding Heaven on earth, we are asked to release Heaven by living on earth"
- Mark Nepo; a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and spirituality for over 30 years. Nepo is best known for his New York Times #1 bestseller, The Book of Awakening.
[24:55] God promises those among you who believe and lead a righteous life, that He will make them sovereigns on earth, as He did for those before them, and will establish for them the religion He has chosen for them, and will substitute peace and security for them in place of fear. All this because they worship Me alone; they never set up any idols beside Me. Those who disbelieve after this are the truly wicked.
[30:44] Whoever disbelieves, disbelieves to the detriment of his own soul, while those who lead a righteous life, do so to strengthen and develop their own souls.
[4:26] God wills to explain things for you, and to guide you through past precedents, and to redeem you. God is Omniscient, Most Wise.
[4:27] God wishes to redeem you, while those who pursue their lusts wish that you deviate a great deviation.
[4:28] God wishes to lighten your burden, for the human being is created weak.
[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.
[90:4] We created the human being to work hard (to redeem himself).
[10:25] God invites to the abode of peace, and guides whomever He wills in a straight path.
[5:15] O people of the scripture, our messenger has come to you to proclaim for you many things you have concealed in the scripture, and to pardon many other transgressions you have committed. A beacon has come to you from God, and a profound scripture.
[5:16] With it, God guides those who seek His approval. He guides them to the paths ("means" in Arabic text) of peace, leads them out of darkness into the light by His leave, and guides them in a straight path.
[6:82] Those who believe, and do not pollute their belief with idol worship, have deserved the perfect security, and they are truly guided.
[13:29] Those who believe and lead a righteous life have deserved happiness and a joyous destiny.
[10:62] Absolutely, God's allies have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
[10:63] They are those who believe and lead a righteous life.
[10:64] For them, joy and happiness in this world, as well as in the Hereafter. This is God's unchangeable law. Such is the greatest triumph.
[16:30] As for the righteous, when they are asked, "What do you think of these revelations from your Lord," they say, "Good." For those who lead a righteous life, happiness ("in this life" exists in Arabic text after "happiness" and is missing in the translation), and the abode of the Hereafter is even better. What a blissful abode for the righteous.
[39:17] As for those who discard the worship of all idols, and devote themselves totally to God alone, they have deserved happiness. Give good news to My servants.
[39:18] They are the ones who examine all words, then follow the best. These are the ones whom God has guided; these are the ones who possess intelligence.
[41:30] Those who proclaim: "Our Lord is God," then lead a righteous life, the angels descend upon them: "You shall have no fear, nor shall you grieve. Rejoice in the good news that Paradise has been reserved for you.
[41:31] "We are your allies in this life, and in the Hereafter. You will have in it anything you wish for; you will have anything you want.
[41:32] "(Such is your) ultimate abode, from a Forgiver, Most Merciful."
[47:2] Those who believe and work righteousness, and believe in what was sent down to Muhammad - which is the truth from their Lord - He remits their sins, and blesses them with contentment.
[61:11] Believe in God and His messenger and strive in the cause of God with your money and your lives. This is the best deal for you, if you only knew.
[61:12] In return, He forgives your sins, and admits you into gardens with flowing streams, with beautiful mansions in the gardens of Eden. This is the greatest triumph.
[61:13] Additionally, you get something you truly love: support from God and guaranteed victory. Give good news to the believers.
[28:76] Qãroon was one of Moses' people who betrayed them and oppressed them. We gave him so many treasures that the keys thereof were almost too heavy for the strongest band. His people said to him, "Do not be so arrogant; God does not love those who are arrogant.
[28:77] "Use the provisions bestowed upon you by God to seek the abode of the Hereafter, without neglecting your share in this world. Be charitable, as God has been charitable towards you. Do not keep on corrupting the earth. God does not love the corruptors."
[7:32] Say, "Who prohibited the nice things God has created for His creatures, and the good provisions?" Say, "Such provisions are to be enjoyed in this life by those who believe. Moreover, the good provisions will be exclusively theirs on the Day of Resurrection." We thus explain the revelations for people who know.
[4:73] As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, He will fully recompense them, and shower them with His grace. ....
[14:27] God strengthens those who believe with the proven word, in this life and in the Hereafter. .....
[2:152] You shall remember Me, that I may remember you, and be thankful to Me; do not be unappreciative.
[2:153] O you who believe, seek help through steadfastness and the Contact Prayers (Salat). God is with those who steadfastly persevere.
[2:155] We will surely test you through some fear, hunger, and loss of money, lives, and crops. Give good news to the steadfast.
[2:156] When an affliction befalls them, they say, "We belong to God, and to Him we are returning."
[2:157] These have deserved blessings from their Lord ("Salawat" in the Arabic text which means a "support from their Lord"- please examine 33:56 for a similar use) and mercy. These are the guided ones.
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless.
