ALLAH created man and taught him what he knew not.

The Holy Qur'an is an Enduring Miracle from ALLAH. The very first words revealed of the Miraculous Qur'an are "Iqra' bismi Rabbikal-lathee khalaqa ....." [Read or Recite in the Name of your LORD who created .....].

Surah 96, Al-'Alaq or the Clot begins with the very first revelation of the Holy Qur'an. Surah Al-'Alaq consists of 19 short ayaat or verses in all.

This short Surah begins: "Iqra' bismi Rabbikal-lathee khalaqa ....." [Read or Recite in the Name of your LORD who created .....].


Read Holy Qur'an!

We invite you to believe in ALLAH and be confirmed with the Sure Knowledge that the Arabic Qur'an which has been revealed through Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him] is the True and Perfect Guidance from ALLAH, for those who believe and put their trust exclusively in their LORD. Some of the other numerous Clear Arguments and Clear Proofs regarding the Truth about ALLAH and al-Islam [the Submission or Surrender to HIM] which are contained throughout the complete Arabic Qur'an, Chapters 1 through 114 are translated into the English language as follows:

HE is ALLAH, beside Whom Laa ilaaha illaa Huwa [none has the right to be worshipped but HE], The All-Knower of the unseen and the seen. HE is The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

HE is ALLAH, beside Whom Laa ilaaha illaa Huwa [none has the right to be worshipped but HE], The King, The Holy, The Source of Peace, The Bestower of Security, The Protector, The Mighty, The Supreme. Glory be to ALLAH! [High is HE] above all that they associate as partners with HIM.

HE is ALLAH, The Creator, The Maker, The Fashioner. HIS are the Most Beautiful Names. All that is in the heavens and the earth declares HIS glory; and HE is The All-Mighty, The All-Wise. [59:22-24]

ALLAH Witnesses That Their Is No Deity Except HIM!

ALLAH witnesses that there is no deity except HIM; and so do the Angels and those of knowledge, --- that HE is maintaining creation in justice. There is no deity except HIM, The Exalted in Might, The Wise.

Indeed, the Religion in the Sight of ALLAH is al-Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of ALLAH, then indeed, ALLAH is swift in taking account.

So if they argue with you, say: I have submitted myself to ALLAH in Islam, and so have those who follow me. And say to those who were given the Scripture and to the unlearned: Have you submitted yourselves? And if they submit in Islam, they are rightly guided; but if they turn away - then upon you is only the duty of notification. And ALLAH is All-Seeing of HIS servants. [3:18-20]


O mankind, there has come to you instruction from your LORD and Healing for what is in the breast and Guidance and Mercy for the Believers. [10:57]

So is one whose breast ALLAH has expanded to accept Islam and he is upon a light from his LORD [like one whose heart rejects it]? Then woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of ALLAH. Those are in manifest error.

ALLAH has sent down the Best Statement: a consistent Book wherein is reiteration. The skins shiver thereof of those who Fear their LORD; then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of ALLAH. That is the Guidance of ALLAH by which HE guides whom HE wills. And one whom ALLAH leaves astray - for him there is no guide. [39:22-23]

And when it is said to them: Believe as other people have believed, they exclaim: Shall we believe as the fools have believed? Now surely, they are the fools, but they know not. [2:13

And if you are in doubt as to that which ALLAH revealed to HIS servant, then produce a chapter like it and call on your helpers aside from ALLAH if you are truthful. But if you do it not -- and you can never do it -- then be on your guard against the Fire whose Fuel is men and stones; it is prepared for the disbelievers. [2:23-24]

Many of the People of the Scripture wish that they could turn you back to disbelief after you have believed, out of envy from themselves even after the Truth has become clear to them. But pardon and overlook until ALLAH delivers HIS command. Surely, ALLAH is Possessor of Power over all things. [2:109]

We Believe In ALLAH and in All of HIS Messengers!

Say: We have believed in ALLAH and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the Prophets from their LORD. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to HIM.

So if they believe in the same as you believe in, then they have been rightly guided; but if they turn away, they are only in dissension, and ALLAH will be sufficient for you against them. And HE is The Hearing, The Knowing.

And say: Ours is the Religion of ALLAH. And who is better than ALLAH in [ordaining] religion? And we are worshippers of HIM. [2:136-138]


All Messengers Bear Witness: "No God Except ALLAH!"

Or have they taken gods besides HIM? Say [O Muhammad]: Produce your proof. This [Qur'an] is the Message for those with me and the Message for those before me. But most of them do not know the truth, so they are turning away.

And We sent not before you any Messenger except that We revealed to him that, "There is no deity except ME, so worship ME."

And they say: "The Most Merciful has taken a son." Exalted is HE! Rather, they are but Honored Servants.

They cannot precede HIM in word, and they act by HIS command.

HE knows what is presently before them and what will be after them, and they cannot intercede except on behalf of one whom HE approves. And they, from Fear of HIM, are apprehensive.

And whoever of them should say, "Indeed, I am a god besides HIM" - that one We would recompenses with Hell. Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers. [21:24-29]


Muhammad is not but a Messenger. Other Messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to disbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm ALLAH at all; but ALLAH will Reward the grateful. [3:144]

Ascribing Associates with ALLAH is Disbelief!

They have certainly disbelieved who say: ALLAH is "the Messiah, the son of Mary", while the Messiah has said: "O Children of Israel, worship ALLAH, my LORD and your LORD." Indeed, he who associates others with ALLAH --- ALLAH has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.

They have certainly disbelieved who say: "ALLAH is the third of three. And there is no god except One GOD. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a Painful Punishment.

So will they not repent to ALLAH and seek forgiveness? And ALLAH is Forgiving and Merciful.

The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a Messenger; other Messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a Supporter of Truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the Signs; then look how they are deluded.

Say: Do you worship besides ALLAH that which holds for you no power of harm or benefit while it is ALLAH Who is The Hearing, The Knowing. [5:72-76]


ALLAH is the Friend of those who believe --- HE brings them out of darkness into Light. And those who disbelieve, their friends are the devils who take them out of Light into darkness. They are the companions of the Fire; therein they abide. [2:257]
