In The Name of God, The Most Merciful, The Ever-Merciful to His believing servants.
God, The Most High, has said,
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ ٱلْجِنَّ وَٱلْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
“And I did not create the jinns and humans except to worship Me.”The Noble Qur’an 51:56
وَٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَلَا تُشْرِكُوا۟ بِهِۦ شَيْـًٔا
“Worship God and join none with Him in worship”The Noble Qur’an 4:36
The Call of The Prophets and Messengers
وَلَقَدْ بَعَثْنَا فِى كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ رَّسُولًا أَنِ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱجْتَنِبُوا۟ ٱلطَّٰغُوتَ
“And verily, We have sent among every nation a Messenger (proclaiming): ‘Worship God (Alone), and avoid the false deities,'”The Noble Qur’an 16:36
Taking Intercessors With God Is Polytheism and Disbelief
أَلَا لِلَّهِ ٱلدِّينُ ٱلْخَالِصُ وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّخَذُوا۟ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ أَوْلِيَآءَ مَا نَعْبُدُهُمْ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَآ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ زُلْفَىٰٓ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فِى مَا هُمْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِى مَنْ هُوَ كَٰذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ
“Unquestionably, for God is the pure Religion. And those who take protectors besides Him say, ‘We only worship them that they may bring us nearer to God in rank.’ Verily, God will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, God guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.The Noble Qur’an 39:3
وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا يَضُرُّهُمْ وَلَا يَنفَعُهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ شُفَعَٰٓؤُنَا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ قُلْ أَتُنَبِّـُٔونَ ٱللَّهَ بِمَا لَا يَعْلَمُ فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَلَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
“And they worship besides God things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: “These are our intercessors with God.” Say: “Do you inform God of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?!” Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!”The Noble Qur’an 10:18
God Is Able to Do All Things
تَبَٰرَكَ ٱلَّذِى بِيَدِهِ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
“Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things.”The Noble Qur’an 67:1
God is Above and Separate From His Creation
وَهُوَ ٱلْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِۦ وَهُوَ ٱلْحَكِيمُ ٱلْخَبِيرُ
“And He is The Invincible Subduer, above His slaves, and He is The All-Wise, Well-Acquainted (with all things).”The Noble Qur’an 6:18
ٱلرَّحْمَٰنُ عَلَى ٱلْعَرْشِ ٱسْتَوَىٰ
“The Most Merciful ascended over the Throne.”The Noble Qur’an 20:5
Worship God, O Christians!
لَّقَدْ كَفَرَ ٱلَّذِينَ قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلْمَسِيحُ ٱبْنُ مَرْيَمَ قُلْ فَمَن يَمْلِكُ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ شَيْـًٔا إِنْ أَرَادَ أَن يُهْلِكَ ٱلْمَسِيحَ ٱبْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَأُمَّهُۥ وَمَن فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا وَلِلَّهِ مُلْكُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
“They have certainly disbelieved who say that God is the Messiah, the son of Mary. Say, “Who then has the least power against God, if He were to destroy the Messiah, son of Mary, his mother, and all those who are on the earth together?” And to God belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. He creates what He wills. And God is able to do all things.The Noble Qur’an 5:17
There is None Like Unto God, and He is As He Described Himself
لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِۦ شَىْءٌ وَهُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْبَصِيرُ
“There is nothing like unto Him, and He is The All-Hearing, The All-Seeing.”The Noble Qur’an 42:11
There is No Doubt About God
قَالَتْ رُسُلُهُمْ أَفِى ٱللَّهِ شَكٌّ فَاطِرِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ
“Their messengers said, ‘Can there be doubt about God, Originator of the heavens and earth?'”The Noble Qur’an 14:10
Atheists Have No Certainty
أَمْ خُلِقُوا۟ مِنْ غَيْرِ شَىْءٍ أَمْ هُمُ ٱلْخَٰلِقُونَ
“Or were they created by nothing, or were they the creators (of themselves)?
أَمْ خَلَقُوا۟ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ بَل لَّا يُوقِنُونَ
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain.”The Noble Qur’an 52:35-6
They Did Not Witness The Creation of The Heavens and The Earth Nor The Creation of Themselves
مَّآ أَشْهَدتُّهُمْ خَلْقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَا خَلْقَ أَنفُسِهِمْ وَمَا كُنتُ مُتَّخِذَ ٱلْمُضِلِّينَ عَضُدًا
“I did not make them witness to the creation of the heavens and the earth or to the creation of themselves, and I would not have taken the misguiders as assistants.”The Noble Qur’an 18:51
Knowledge Comes Before Speaking and Acting
فَٱعْلَمْ أَنَّهُۥ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهُ وَٱسْتَغْفِرْ لِذَنۢبِكَ
“So know (O Muḥammad) that none has the right to be worshipped except God. And seek forgiveness for your sin,”The Noble Qur’an 47:19
The Methodology of Seeking Knowledge and That The Messenger Explained The Qur’an to His Followers:
وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ إِلَّا رِجَالًا نُّوحِىٓ إِلَيْهِمْ فَسْـَٔلُوٓا۟ أَهْلَ ٱلذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ
“And We sent not before you (Muhammad) any but men to whom We inspired. So ask of the people of knowledge if you do not know.
بِٱلْبَيِّنَٰتِ وَٱلزُّبُرِ وَأَنزَلْنَآ إِلَيْكَ ٱلذِّكْرَ لِتُبَيِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ مَا نُزِّلَ إِلَيْهِمْ وَلَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
With clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). And We sent down to you (Muhammad) the reminder and the advice (The Qur’an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought.”The Noble Qur’an 16:43-44
God’s Religion is Complete and The Boycotting of Heretics (Innovators in Religion)
ٱلْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِى وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ ٱلْإِسْلَٰمَ دِينًا
“This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.”The Noble Qur’an 5:3
وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ ٱلَّذِينَ يَخُوضُونَ فِىٓ ءَايَٰتِنَا فَأَعْرِضْ عَنْهُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَخُوضُوا۟ فِى حَدِيثٍ غَيْرِهِۦ وَإِمَّا يُنسِيَنَّكَ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنُ فَلَا تَقْعُدْ بَعْدَ ٱلذِّكْرَىٰ مَعَ ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ
And when you (Muhammad) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Satan causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you with the wrongdoing people.The Noble Qur’an 6:68
Obedience to God, His Messenger and Muslims in Authority
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُو۟لِى ٱلْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ
“O you who have believed, obey God and obey the Messenger and those in authority over you.”The Noble Qur’an 4:59
Corruption Has Appeared On Account of What Men Have Earned In Order That They May Return
ظَهَرَ ٱلْفَسَادُ فِى ٱلْبَرِّ وَٱلْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِى ٱلنَّاسِ لِيُذِيقَهُم بَعْضَ ٱلَّذِى عَمِلُوا۟ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ
“Corruption has appeared on land and sea because of what the hands of men have earned, that He may let them taste a part of what they have done, in order that they may return.”The Noble Qur’an 30:41
Reports From Sinful People Must Be Verified
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ إِن جَآءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌۢ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوٓا۟
“O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it”The Noble Qur’an 49:6
The Base State of Man is Ignorance and Oppression (Knowledge and Justice are Learned Traits)
إِنَّا عَرَضْنَا ٱلْأَمَانَةَ عَلَى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَٱلْجِبَالِ فَأَبَيْنَ أَن يَحْمِلْنَهَا وَأَشْفَقْنَ مِنْهَا وَحَمَلَهَا ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ ظَلُومًا جَهُولًا
“Indeed, we offered the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it and feared it; but man bore it. Indeed, he was unjust (to himself) and ignorant.”The Noble Qur’an 33:72
The Methodology of The Seeker of Truth
هَاتُوا۟ بُرْهَٰنَكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ صَٰدِقِينَ
“Bring forth your proofs, if you are truthful.”The Noble Qur’an 27:64
In The Name of God, The Most Merciful, The Ever-Merciful to His believing servants.
Verily, all praise belongs to God, we praise Him, we seek His aid and we seek His forgiveness.
Whoever God guides then there is none to misguide him, and whoever who God misguides (due to a perversion in his heart) then there is none to guide such an individual.
I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except God alone with no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and messenger.
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱتَّقُوا۟ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَٰحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَآءً وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِى تَسَآءَلُونَ بِهِۦ وَٱلْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا
“O mankind, fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear God, through Whom you ask one another and the wombs. Indeed God is ever All-Watcher over you.”The Noble Qur’an 4:1
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِۦ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ
“O you who believe! Fear God as He should be feared and die not except as Muslims.”The Noble Qur’an 3:102
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَقُولُوا۟ قَوْلًا سَدِيدًا
“O you who believe! Keep your duty to God and fear Him, and speak a word that is precise.
يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَٰلَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَمَن يُطِعِ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا
He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys God and His Messenger, he has indeed achieved a great achievement.”The Noble Qur’an 33:70-71
As for what proceeds, then the best of speech is God’s Book (The Qur’an) and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad, may God extol him in the highest company of the Angels and bestow peace upon him.
And the most evil of affairs are the newly invented matters in religion. Every newly invented matter in religion is an accursed innovation, every innovation is misguidance and every misguidance is in the fire.
As for what proceeds,
The Purpose For This Compilation
The Messenger of God, may God extol him in the highest company of the Angels and grant him peace, said
“Make things easy for the people, and do not make it difficult for them, and make them calm (with glad tidings) and do not repulse (them).”Authenticated by Bukhari
The collection above is a collection of some 25 Verses of The Qur’an that we found in particularly frequent usage in calling others to God, The Perfect and Most High.
In them is an explanation of a number of vitally important topics for the Orthodox Muslim, Sinful Muslim, Astray Muslim, Polytheist, Disbeliever, Atheist and all of the people.
From these topics are:
- The Perfection of God, The Blessed and Most High
- The Reason For God’s Creating Man (to worship Him alone).
- The Call of The Prophets and Messengers (to Worship God Alone); This Being The Real Means of Rectification in The World
- An Explanation That Taking Intercessors With God is Polytheism and Disbelief
- The Methodology of The Prophets in Calling to God, By Innate Disposition First
- An Exposition of The Lunacy of Atheism and a Call to The True Religion
- A Call To Christians To Direct God’s Right (Any and All Worship) to Him Alone Who Created Them and Created Jesus
- That Knowledge Proceeds Statement and Action
- A Refutation of Newly Invented Matters in Religion and The Boycotting of Innovators (Heretics)
- The Obligation of Obeying God, His Messenger and Muslims in Authority
- The Methodology of Seeking Knowledge and Assessing Narrators
This collection is not meant to be an exhaustive work, but rather a collection of verses easy to memorise that the Monotheist may be well equipped for their daily life in any and all interactions with all peoples.
We focused on using Verses of The Qur’an for this compilation, as even the most astray of Muslims will not deny them, no matter the level of doubts they may be affected by.
In addition, the heart has a need for The Speech of its Creator, The Blessed and Most High, Muslim or Non-Muslim.
God, The Most High, said,
وَإِنْ أَحَدٌ مِّنَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ ٱسْتَجَارَكَ فَأَجِرْهُ حَتَّىٰ يَسْمَعَ كَلَٰمَ ٱللَّهِ ثُمَّ أَبْلِغْهُ مَأْمَنَهُۥ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لَّا يَعْلَمُونَ
“And if anyone of the polytheists seeks your protection then grant him protection, so that he may hear the Word of God (The Qur’an), and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not.”The Noble Qur’an 9:6
For the explanation of the Verses and the principles derived from them, the Seeker of Truth should continue their structured, planned learning of Islam, with the books of Orthodox Islamic Creed, which may be found via this link.
All praise belongs to God the Lord of The Worlds, may he extol His Messenger in the highest company of the Angels and grant him peace, his family and companions altogether.
