The Glorious Quran's Moral Code: (100s of them)
The Glorious Quran is very rich. Now, while Allah Almighty left the details on how to perform certain Commands for the Hadiths (Sayings) of Prophet Muhammad to explain, such as the steps on how to Pray, the details on how and when to Fast, do Pilgrimage, the Laws on how much and when to pay Zakat (charity), and so on, but aside from that, the Quran pretty much contains everything the Muslim needs for his/her Islamic faith, morality and ethics in great details. The Quran is also a Scientific and Numerical Miracle by the Divine Design of Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty Said that He made the Quran miraculous as such to prove to mankind that It is indeed from Him, the Almighty.
With Allah Almighty's Grace, Mercy and Will, I have gone through the entire Glorious Quran, Word for Word and Verse for Verse, and came up with the list of the Moral Law and Code in our Holy Book. All Praise and Glory and Thanks are due to Allah Almighty Alone! The table below can also be used as a Topic Search on the Glorious Quran.

The following are the "Do" and "Do not do" Commands that Muslims are obligated to live by, in the Glorious Quran. You can also use this website's www.QuranSearch.com to verify all of the Noble Verses, below.
True Believers establish Prayers to Allah Almighty. They also Prostrate
to Allah Almighty in Worship.
You must be patient with Salat (Prayer):
وامر اهلك بالصلاة واصطبر عليها لانسألك رزقا نحن نرزقك والعاقبة للتقوى
[020:132]Bid your family to observe the ‘salat’, and stay steadfast upon it yourself واصطبر عليها.....

Free a slave! It is the harder course.
Islam came to end slavery. Slavery is no more. Just like
captives of war. Their status is temporary. They are
ultimately to be set free. Slaves are the same thing. There
are many Noble Verses that Command the Muslims to free slaves whenever
90:11 فلا اقتحم العقبة
90:12 وماادراك ماالعقبة
90:13 فك رقبة
man does not attempt the harder (uphill
Noble Verse 24:33 "Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until God gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which God has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is God, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),"

|35||Fight/struggle against those who cast doubt about your Faith.||9:123-129|
|36||Fear Allah (ويدعوننا رغبا ورهبا).||9:123, 21:90|
Do not procrastinate
or go lazy when the call for the Cause
of Allah Almighty is made. Be active and do not be lazy to spread
Islam and to do the work of Allah Almighty.
[009:038] O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of God اذا قيل لكم انفروا في سبيل الله, ye cling heavily to the earth اثاقلتم الى الارض? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter.
Also, avoid procrastinators and lazy people. They will demoralize you, tempt you and drive you to become heavy and lazy and a procrastinator like them:
[009:046] If they had intended to come out, they would certainly have made some preparation therefor; but God was averse to their being sent forth كره الله انبعاثهم; so He made them lag behind فثبطهم, and they were told, "Sit ye among those who sit (inactive). وقيل اقعدوا مع القاعدين"
[009:047] If they had come out with you, they would not have added to your (strength) but only (made for) disorder لو خرجوا فيكم مازادوكم الا خبالا, hurrying to and fro in your midst and sowing sedition among you ولاوضعوا خلالكم يبغونكم الفتنة, and there would have been some among you who would have listened to them. But God knoweth well those who do wrong.
|38||If a disbeliever seeks refuge to you to protect him, then grant him the protection, and take him to where he would be safe so that he may hear the Holy Quran.||9:6|

|40||Do not divide the Muslims.||30:31-32, 2:191, 2:217, 10:85, 60:4-9, 59:16-17, 85:10|
|41||Fight until there is no more fitnah, tumult or trial or corruption.||8:39, 3:103, 30:31-32, 2:191, 2:217, 10:85, 60:4-9, 59:16-17, 85:10|
Do not be a fitnah or trial to the disbelievers (ان الذين فتنوا المؤمنين
والمؤمنات ثم لم
يتوبوا فلهم عذاب جهنم ولهم عذاب الحريق).
Do not lie to them or deceive them (ربنا لاتجعلنا فتنة للذين كفروا واغفر لنا ربنا انك انت العزيز الحكيم). Allah Almighty wants to bring peace and harmony between the Muslims and the disbelievers. We have to be true and genuine all the time.
|43||Punish those who hurt you in the same amount and way they hurt you. Punish as you were punished. But if you show patience it'll be better for you. If you forgive and fix, then that will be great!||2:194, 16:126, 22:60, 42:40-43|
|44||Do not throw yourself into destruction.||2:195|
|45||Don't be fooled by good talk or speech.||2:204|
Follow the best of the constructive talk (speech), and the one that gives the best
instructions ( الذين يستمعون القول فيتبعون
Also, be mindful of the words you utter, because Allah Almighty has assigned watchers over you to record everything you speak مايلفظ من قول الا لديه رقيب عتيد.
|47||Arrogance and being egoistic and self-centered, and boasting in pride is a sin. Also, do not let your ego, arrogance and self-centeredness cause you to transgress and not be pious. واذا قيل له اتق الله اخذته العزة بالاثم فحسبه جهنم ولبئس المهاد. Also, stubbornness against recognizing that you are wrong and that you must change your wrong ways is a sin.||2:206, 57:23|
|48||People should co-exist in peace.||2:208, 8:61|
If the enemy inclines towards peace, then do also incline toward peace,
and put your trust in Allah Almighty.
If you have the advantage and you are the stronger, then don't call for peace, and do push to the end until Islam is victorious and the infidels become Muslims.
|8:61, 47:35, 48:16|
All intoxicants including alcohol and drugs, and Gambling, divination, and sorcery,
and all abominations are evil. The same Noble Word for
avoiding them was also used for idols false talk or speech, lying and false
testimony (فاجتنبوا الرجس من الاوثان واجتنبوا قول
Allah Almighty said: "O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,- of Satan's handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper. Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of God, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain? (The Noble Quran, 5:90-91)"
Eschew all abominations. And will you not abstain from all abominations? The abominations include all intoxicants, gambling and all harmful things.
Also, Gambling and alcohol are some of satan's tools to create enmity, hatred and disunity among the Believers, and to stop the Believers from remembering Allah Almighty and from Praying. Gambling and alcohol and two sources for division and hate, and they prevent the remembrance of Allah Almighty and Salat (Prayer): انما يريد الشيطان ان يوقع بينكم العداوة والبغضاء في الخمر والميسر ويصدكم عن ذكر الله وعن الصلاة فهل انتم منتهون
Allah Almighty calls unto all Muslims TO STOP all gambling and all intoxicants consumption: "eschew such (abomination)" and "will ye not then abstain?".
|2:219, 5:90-91, 22:30|
|51||Disbelievers and hypocrites are unclean.||9:28, 9:95|
|52||Disbelievers are not allowed to fill the Mosques of Allah Almighty.||9:17-18, 9:28|
|53||Muslim men and women are forbidden from marrying disbelievers.||2:221|
|54||Do not carelessly or excessively swear in the Name of Allah Almighty. Those who swear by Allah Almighty a lot are despicable (ولاتطع كل حلاف مهين).||2:224, 5:107, 24:53, 68:10|
|55||Do not touch the Holy Quran when you're not in a pure state.||8:11, 74:4-5, 56:79, 7:31, 2:222, 4:43|
|56||Repel evil with good so that the one whom there is animosity or enmity (is your enemy) between you and him might become a dear friend to you (ولاتستوي الحسنة ولاالسيئة ادفع بالتي هي احسن فاذا الذي بينك وبينه عداوة كانه ولي حميم).||41:34, 27:11|
Remind the Believers to do Good
because it is beneficial to them
فان الذكرى تنفع المؤمنين.
Remind those who fear Allah Almighty's Warnings and Promises with the
Holy Quran فذكر بالقران من
Also, remind the believers that Good deeds erase the bad deeds ان الحسنات يذهبن السيئات ذلك ذكرى للذاكرين.
|11:114, 51:55, 50:45, 87:9, 88:21, 16:125|
|58||When spending money for any thing good or for good cause, do not boast, brag nor try to seek the people whom the money came to for worldly recognition or gain (ولاتمنن تستكثر), or to be seen by people, or to show off. Do not hurt people with your charity.||2:262, 4:38, 74:6|
|59||Do not pray for the sake of being seen and recognized by people. Now being seen and visible while praying is ok, but do not do it for the sake of worldly recognition.||107:4-7|
|60||Never hurt people with your charity!||2:263|
|61||It is better if you give your charity in secret to the poor||2:271|
|62||Speaking good and offering forgiveness is better than giving charity and hurt or annoy or SCANDALIZE people with it.||2:263-265, 3:134|
|63||Charity givers are blessed in secret or in public will be rewarded for their deeds. الذين ينفقون اموالهم بالليل والنهار سرا وعلانية فلهم اجرهم عند ربهم||2:274, 13:22, 14:31, 16:75, 35:29, 51:19, 92:5-11, 92:17-18|
Charity and Alms:
[009:060] Alms are for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to Truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of God; and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by God, and God is full of knowledge and wisdom.
|65||Do not give Charity while you're resenting it or in resentment||9:54|
|66||Do Good and ask for no Reward (اتبعوا من لايسألكم اجرا وهم مهتدون).||6:90, 11:29, 11:51, 12:104, 26:109, 26:127, 26:145, 26:164, 26:180, 34:47, 36:21, 38:86, 42:23|
|67||Do not teach the Glorious Quran for money. No reward.||12:104, 25:57, 42:23|
|68||Do not be costly or a burden or expensive on people, especially when you're trying to do good for them (قل ما اسألكم عليه من اجر وماانا من المتكلفين).||38:86|
|69||Fulfill your oaths, vows and promises, and be trust worthy to all people.||2:270, 3:76, 76:7-10|
|70||Be a straight and upright believer.||46:13|
|71||The righteous of the poor are those who are modest and don't go around asking people for money.||2:273|
|72||Riba (usury) is forbidden, and it is not the same as selling goods. Do not take riba when lending money to others.||2:275, 2:278, 3:130, 30:39|
|73||Grant a delay (to the debtor) if he is up against hard time, until his (financial) situation eases. To waive the debt by way of charity would be better for you, if only you knew.||2:280|
When loan is given, record it in writing and bring two witnesses, either
two males, or a man and two females, in case one
female makes a mistake so the other would correct her.
Note from me, Osama Abdallah: Men back then were apparently more experienced in dealing with money and trades between goods and services with other merchants than women. Women were more experienced in raising children, milking the cattle, shaving wool off of cattle, making clothes and matrices and pillows from the wool, farming and cooking.
|75||Pay back your debt, and give back what you held for others.||2:283|
The Moral Code that Allah Almighty Commands us to follow, and is the
minimum for the disbelievers to consider and follow if they wish to
[006:151] Say: "Come, I will rehearse what God hath (really) prohibited you from": Join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of want;- We provide sustenance for you and for them;- come not nigh to shameful deeds. Whether open or secret; take not life, which God hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.
[006:152] And come not nigh to the orphan's property, except to improve it, until he attain the age of full strength; give measure and weight with (full) justice;- no burden do We place on any soul, but that which it can bear;- whenever ye speak, speak justly, even if a near relative is concerned; and fulfill the covenant of God: thus doth He command you, that ye may remember.
[006:153] Verily, this is My way, leading straight: follow it: follow not (other) paths: they will scatter you about from His (great) path: thus doth He command you. that ye may be righteous.
Be wise. Be a person of wisdom. Those whom Allah Almighty give Wisdom have gained a Mighty Benefit. Allah Almighty called it "an abundant wealth" خيرا كثيرا.
|2:269, 6:151-153, 4:63, 16:125, 29:46|
|77||Do not over commit nor over burden yourself.||2:286, 9:91, 23:62|
|78||Do not take the disbelievers as protectors and allies, especially without or against the Believers. الذين يتخذون الكافرين اولياء من دون المؤمنين ايبتغون عندهم العزة فان العزة لله جميعا||3:28, 3:118, 5:51, 5:57-59, 4:139|
|79||Be true to your covenant that you take with disbelievers or with anyone, as long as they don't betray you. Be true to any covenant you take! You will be asked for it by Allah Almighty (واوفوا بالعهد ان العهد كان مسؤولا). Keep safe the things you have in your possession and Trust (والذين هم لاماناتهم وعهدهم راعون). Be true to the Oaths that you take in the Name of Allah Almighty.||6:152, 8:27, 8:56, 9:4, 13:20-21, 13:25, 16:91-96, 17:34, 70:32|
Be true to your word. Do not say what you do not do (وانهم يقولون
[061:003] It is greatly despised by Allah that you should say something, and then not do it كبر مقتا عند الله ان تقولوا مالاتفعلون.
|81||Blessed are those who give charity. Their reward is Great!||4:114|
Be very generous with your charity, and spend even from the most
precious things to yourself, whether you are financial comfortable or
not ويؤثرون على انفسهم ولو كان بهم خصاصة ومن يوق شح
نفسه فاولئك هم المفلحون.
It's best to give from what you love:
لن تنالوا البر حتى تنفقوا مما تحبون وماتنفقوا من شئ فان الله به عليم
[003:092] Ye will not attain unto piety until ye spend of that which ye love حتى تنفقوا مما تحبون. And whatsoever ye spend, Allah is Aware thereof.
This is not just limited to money. If you want love, you must give love. If you want respect, you must give respect. If you want peace, you must give peace. If you want trust, you must give trust. If you want friendship, you must give friendship. Always take the lead in being a great example, and spend from what is most dear and precious to you to attain piety.
|3:92, 3:134, 59:9|
|83||Spend money on good things.||4:39|
Do not be cheap or stingy. Cheap people will be punished severely. They are also
among the hypocrites.
واذا قيل لهم انفقوا مما رزقكم الله قال الذين كفروا للذين امنوا انطعم من لو يشاء الله اطعمه ان انتم الا في ضلال مبين
|3:180, 4:37, 9:53, 9:67, 9:76, 17:29, 25:67, 36:47, 47:37-38, 57:24, 92:5-11|
|85||Do not spend money excessively ولاتبذر تبذيرا, or be extravagant, because people who spend too much on worldly things are the siblings of satan, or brothers and sisters of satans according to the Glorious Quran.||17:26-29, 25:67|
|86||Be neither cheap or excessive spender or extravagant. Be in the middle ( ولاتجعل يدك مغلولة الى عنقك ولاتبسطها كل البسط فتقعد ملوما محسورا).||17:29, 25:67|
|87||Always be a Muslim||3:102|
|88||Do not be be divided||3:103, 3:105|
|89||Call others towards excellence (in character and conduct) _ enjoining (and encouraging) virtue, and forbidding the wrong (and the indecent). Command what is right and condemn what is wrong||3:104, 3:110, 9:112, 22:41|
The True Believers are:
[023:001] The believers must (eventually) win through,-
[023:002] Those who humble themselves in their prayers;
[023:003] Who avoid vain talk (or speech);
[023:004] Who are active in deeds of charity;
[023:005] Who abstain from sex,
[023:006] Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (in their case) they are free from blame.
[023:007] But those whose desires exceed those limits are transgressors;-
[023:008] Those who faithfully observe their trusts and their covenants;
[023:009] And who (strictly) guard their prayers;-
[023:010] These will be the heirs,
[023:011] Who will inherit Paradise: they will dwell therein (for ever).
Again, be mindful of the words you utter, because Allah Almighty has assigned watchers over you to record everything you speak مايلفظ من قول الا لديه رقيب عتيد.
|9:112, 23:1-11, 50:18|
|91||Be Just! Also, Allah Almighty does not like injustice. Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to God, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor||4:58, 3:108, 4:3, 4:135, 5:42, 5:106, 6:70, 6:152, 11:84-85, 11:112, 16:90, 20:111-112, 42:40-43, 57:25, 38:26, 42:42|
|92||Do not obey your parents if they lead you to shirk (associating anything with Allah Almighty) or evil, or if they relentlessly call unto you to become an apostate or an infidel. But still keep their company and be kind and just with them. وان جاهداك على ان تشرك بي ماليس لك به علم فلا تطعهما وصاحبهما في الدنيا معروفا||29:8, 31:15, 58:22|

Aصاحب (saahib) can be a disbeliever (18:37): قال له صاحبه وهو يحاوره اكفرت بالذي خلقك من تراب ثم من نطفة ثم سواك رجلا.

And always invite people to Islam with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with people in ways that are best and most gracious.||50:45, 87:9, 88:21, 16:125, 11:114, 51:55|
Women must not
strike the ground with their heels or feet to make noise that attracts
attention to them, or to use it to signal
what is hidden from their ornaments or any other thing for enticement
ولايضربن بارجلهن ليعلم مايخفين من زينتهن.
Also, women must not be sexually provocative غير متبرجات. Do not dress in sexually provocative clothes. And all Muslims (men and women) must be chaste and honor chastity.
|24:60, 24:30-34, 33:35, 70:29-31|
|207||Those who can't get married must remain chaste until Allah Almighty enriches them by His Grace وليستعفف الذين لايجدون نكاحا حتى يغنيهم الله من فضله. Muslims must remain Chaste until they get married.||24:33|
Do not let people
take you for a light-minded fool
Do not be one who people treat with levity, or be perceived as one with
a light mind, or be treated with
Challenge all arguments until the proof is thoroughly made clear to you. Do not just accept arguments and assume they are truthful because they belong to certain people. Produce your proof if you are truthful, and always ask for proof.
Be a straight and upright believer! Do not trick people, or be a bad influence to them, or be a fitnah or a trial to them, even if they were disbelievers ربنا لاتجعلنا فتنة للذين كفروا واغفر لنا ربنا. Do not be a deceiver and false. Now, it's ok to look out for opportunities to advance yourself, and to be competitive. But do not be a liar and a deceiver. Be upright:
ياايها الذين امنوا كونوا قوامين بالقسط شهداء لله
"Oh you who believe! Be upright قوامين, and uphold justice staunchly بالقسط. (Always) bear testimony for (the sake of) Allah شهداء لله...."

|209||Do not settle for conjecture. Avoid conjecture and stick with clear proofs and truth.||2:78, 4:157, 6:116, 6:148, 45:24, 53:23, 53:28|
When the call for
Prayer is made on Friday (the Friday noon Prayer), do attend it with the
believers. It is the day of assembly;
Hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of God, and leave off
work and business
(If possible in the town that you live in) leave work and business and go join the Friday Prayer.
Note: If you fear bigotry or Islamophobia, and that you will be discriminated against or raise the ire of people who may hurt your job from "under the table" or "behind the curtains", then its ok if you make exception and not go. Allah Almighty doesn't burden people beyond what they can bear. See Noble Verses 6:152, 2:286, 9:91, 23:62. Otherwise, if you can leave work to go to the Friday Prayer and come back, then do not procrastinate nor neglect. And certainly do not make false excuses. Energize yourself and do it.
In general, if a person is forced by necessity, without willful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits, then it's ok to do the forbidden thing. If you're forced, or under emergency, then it's ok to do something that is forbidden فمن اضطر غير باغ ولاعاد فلا اثم عليه. See Noble Verses 2:173, 6:145, 16:115.
Make sure, though, that you are not careless with your excuses. Be true to Allah Almighty. If you can go, then do not procrastinate nor neglect. And certainly do not make false excuses. Energize yourself and do it.
|62:9, 6:152, 2:286, 9:91, 23:62, 2:173, 6:145, 16:115|
Good Muslims give to other
needy believers, and love to give them, and prefer them over themselves.
They also preserve themselves from all coveting and
[059:009] And those who made their abode in the city and in the faith before them love those who have fled to them, and do not find in their hearts a need of what they are given, and prefer (them) before themselves though poverty may afflict them ويؤثرون على انفسهم ولو كان بهم خصاصة, and whoever is preserved from the niggardliness of his soul, these it is that are the successful ones.
But you must also be in the middle in your spending. Do not be cheap nor excessive. Do not spend money excessively ولاتبذر تبذيرا, or be extravagant, because people who spend too much on worldly things are the siblings of satan, or brothers and sisters of satans according to the Glorious Quran. See Noble Verses 17:27, 17:29, 25:67.
|59:9, 17:27-29, 25:67, 4:54|
|212||Do not be a racist or a bigot. Do not judge people based on the way they've been created, or by their colors ان اكرمكم عند الله اتقاكم. See Noble Verse 49:13. Allah Almighty created mankind in different colors ومن الناس والدواب والانعام مختلف الوانه 35:28, and expects from all of us to treat each other with justice and equality based on our piety, character, conduct and merits. We have to be fair and just, and fix and reconcile between people with justice.||49:13, 2:44, 2:224, 3:21, 4:1, 4:114, 5:32, 14:1, 26:183, 34:28, 35:15, 35:28, 38:26, 42:42|
Do not judge people based on the trials that Allah
Almighty puts them through. Accept the trials of life that Allah
Almighty tests you on, and do not judge the good or bad in people based
on the calamities that they're afflicted with:
[089:015] Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me." فيقول ربي اكرمن
[089:016] But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!" فيقول ربي اهانن
[089:017] Nay كلا....
Allah Almighty tests people in certain ways based on His Divine Wisdom. And the believers when they're struck with calamities, they say:
[002:156] Who say, when afflicted with calamity اذا اصابتهم مصيبة: "To God We belong, and to Him is our return":-
|89:15-25, 2:156, 64:11, 22:11, 29:10, 30:33|

The priorities in spending
your money for charity and helping others are:
[002:215] They ask thee what they should spend (In charity). Say: Whatever ye spend that is good, is for parents and kindred and orphans and those in want and for wayfarers. And whatever ye do that is good, -God knoweth it well.يسألونك ماذا ينفقون قل ماانفقتم من خير فللوالدين والاقربين واليتامى والمساكين وابن السبيل وماتفعلوا من خير فان الله به عليم
Only ask Allah Almighty
وقال ربكم ادعوني استجب لكم.
Do not ask anyone else (no Hussein, Zahra, Muhammad, Ali, or any
person). And anyone who acts arrogantly or stubbornly towards
asking Allah Almighty alone will be lead to the Hell Fire:
your Lord says: "Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer)
وقال ربكم ادعوني استجب لكم: but
those who are too arrogant to
Allah Almighty is near, and therefore, we do not need anyone else besides Him فاني قريب اجيب دعوة الداع اذا دعان. And He is nearer to us than our own jugular veins ونحن اقرب اليه من حبل الوريد.
Unfortunately for the heretic Muslims from the Shias and Sufies, they do not understand this concept. They bow to graves, do tawaf (circumambulation) around graves, ask mere pious people for:
Will swear in front of Allah Almighty:
I tell such heretic Muslims that Allah Almighty Said that many will swear in His Holy Name right in front of Him, in the Hereafter, that they were not associating partners with Him, the Almighty:[006:023] Then they will have no excuse save that they shall say, `By ALLAH, our Lord, we were not idolaters.'
[006:024] See how they shall lie against themselves. And that which they fabricated shall fail them.[006:025] And among them are some who give ear to thee (so they are also among the Muslims); but WE have put veils on their hearts, that they should not understand, and deafness in their ears. And even if they see every Sign, they would not believe therein, so much so that when they come to thee, disputing with thee, those who disbelieve say, `This is nothing but fables of the ancients.'
[006:026] And they forbid others to believe in it and themselves too they keep away from it. And they ruin none but their own selves; only they perceive not.
|40:60, 2:186, 50:16, 6:21-26, 18:102, 9:31, 3:64|
Not showering and bathing
enough, and not being hygienic, and not being ceremonially clean and
pure is the work and way of satan:
[008:011] And when HE caused sleep to come upon you as a sign of security from HIM, and HE sent down water upon you from the clouds, that thereby HE might purify you, and remove from you the uncleanliness of Satan وينزل عليكم من السماء ماء ليطهركم به ويذهب عنكم رجز الشيطان, and that HE might strengthen your hearts and make your steps firm therewith.
ask thee concerning women's courses. Say: They are a hurt and a
pollution: So keep away from women in their courses, and do not approach
them until they are clean. But when they have purified themselves, ye
may approach them in any manner, time, or place ordained for you by God.
For God loves those who turn to Him constantly and He loves those
who keep themselves pure and
clean ان الله يحب التوابين ويحب
|8:11, 74:4-5, 56:79, 7:31, 2:222, 4:43|
Polytheists are also those who
divide the Muslims into sects. Do not disunite or divide the
Believers, or cause corruption among them. Those who cause
disunity or divisions or tumult or corruption among the Muslims are
considered polytheists. They are guilty of shirk (associating
partners with Allah Almighty):
[030:031] (Stay firm), turning to Him in repentance! Fear Him, establish the ‘salat’ (Prayer), and do not be among the ‘mushriqeen’ ولاتكونوا من المشركين _ (those associating partners with Allah).
[030:032] (Don’t be one of) those who divided their religion into many sects, each happy and contented with what it holds من الذين فرقوا دينهم وكانوا شيعا كل حزب بما لديهم فرحون.
Mushrikeen is a plural of mushrik. Mushrik is derived from shirk. A mushrik is also one who is guilty of shirk. He practices shirk. Therefore, he is a mushrik. Like in English, one who practices sin becomes a sinner. Sinner is derived from sin.
I believe the reason why Allah Almighty chose this title, mushrikeen, for those who put the Muslims through fitnah, trials and divisions is to warn all Muslims of the severity of this sin. This is especially important since Allah Almighty also Said that He does not forgive the sin of shirk:
[004:048] In fact, Allah does not forgive ‘shirk’ _ (an act of associating others as equal to Him). Baring that, He may forgive anything He wants, and whomever He pleases. The one who commits ‘shirk’ has indeed invented a singularly sinister sin!
Allah Almighty also Said:
[085:010] Verily, those who make trial of the believers, men and women, and then do not repent, for them is the torment of hell, and for them is the torment of the burning!
So those who divide the Muslims into sects are themselves guilty of the great sin that Allah Almighty may not forgive it for them in the Day of Judgment. To Allah Almighty, it is no less than committing shirk itself.
All Muslims are commanded to cling to the rope of Allah as ONE UNIT:
[003:103] Cling firmly to the rope of Allah, all of you together (as a single entity)! Do not fall into disunity. Remember the favors of Allah upon you, when you were each other’s enemy? He brought your hearts together; and so by His grace you became (like) brothers. You were (perched precariously) at the brink of a fire filled abyss. But He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes the revelations clear to you. Perhaps you will find the right path.
|30:31-32, 2:191, 2:217, 10:85, 60:4-9, 59:16-17, 85:10, 8:39, 3:103|
|219||Do not desert or neglect the Glorious Quran. You must make It part of your life and read It regularly.||25:30|
|220||Do not harden your heart. Do not have a hard heart.||22:53, 39:22, 5:13|
Always change yourself to the better. Allah
Almighty does not change the bad status or situation or condition of people until they change
what's in themselves:
[013:011] For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of God. Verily never will God change the condition of a people until they change it themselves ان الله لايغير مابقوم حتى يغيروا مابانفسهم. But when (once) God willeth a people's punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, besides Him, any to protect.
[008:053] "Because God will never change the grace which He hath bestowed on a people until they change what is in themselves ذلك بان الله لم يك مغيرا نعمة انعمها على قوم حتى يغيروا مابانفسهم: and verily God is He Who heareth and knoweth (all things)."
Remember you must always maintain a clean, pure and forgiving heart. This is amply covered above.
|222||Always race, hurry and hasten in doing good and in seeking Allah Almighty's Forgiveness.||3:133, 3:114, 21:90, 23:61|
|223||Be mindful that your striving, efforts, labour (labor), and all of the work that you do in life, - whether it is good or bad, - will be shown and will be made manifest in the Day of Judgment.||53:40, 99:7-8|
|224||Allah Almighty exchanges, substitutes the evil deed with good deeds if He accepts the repentance of those who repent from such evil deeds.||25:70, 27:11, 68:32, 7:95|
|225||Warning to all Muslims: If the current Muslims fail with Allah Almighty, then Allah Almighty will replace them with new Muslims who are True to Him, and who are different from and better than the replaced ones. And none of this would ever harm Allah Almighty.||9:39, 47:38|
The Quran is best recited
[017:078] Establish worship at the going down of the sun until the dark of night, and (the recital of) the Qur'an at dawn. Lo! (the recital of) the Qur'an at dawn is ever witnessed ان قران الفجر كان مشهودا.
People before us were given
They were given their own customized Ways, Creeds, Laws and Covenants by
Allah Almighty. So a Muslim must not just assume that only a
modern-day Muslim will enter Heaven. A Non-idol worshiping
haneef or Hanif
or hanafi) could be considered Muslims by Allah Almighty.
The Haneef Religion is the religion that Allah Almighty has put in our human instincts فطرة from birth:
[030:030] Therefore, forsaking all else stay firm on this religion. It suits the innate character and the very instincts with which Allah has created the human kind فاقم وجهك للدين حنيفا فطرة الله التي فطر الناس عليها. Let there be no violation of the natural laws of Allah. This is the straight and true religion! But most people do not know!
And it was our father Abraham, peace be upon him, who named us Muslims:
[022:078] And strive for Allah with the endeavour which is His right. He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship; the faith of your father Abraham (is yours). He hath named you Muslims هو سماكم المسلمين of old time and in this (Scripture), that the messenger may be a witness against you, and that ye may be witnesses against mankind. So establish worship, pay the poor-due, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protecting friend. A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!

|228||Do not love money and wealth excessively. Do not be obsessed with money and wealth.||89:20, 100:8|
Do not backbite or speak
ill about people, especially the Believers, in their absence or in their
back unless it is justified. This is under normal circumstances
and in casual conversations. But if one is guilty of causing
fitnah or trial or tumult or trouble among people, then it is ok to warn
people from his or her evil. Also, do not be a fitnah maker
among people. See all of the entries that speak about fitnah in
great details above. Remember Allah Almighty Said:
[060:005] "Our Lord! Make us not a (test and) trial for the Unbelieversربنا لاتجعلنا فتنة للذين كفروا, but forgive us, our Lord! for Thou art the Exalted in Might, the Wise."
And we must always give words of wisdom and guidance to those who disbelieve (the disbelievers). See Noble Verses:2:269, 6:151-153, 4:63, 16:125, 29:46.
|230||Those who love for lewdness and sexual sinning and all sins to run wild among the Muslims have terrible and painful punishment that awaits them in this life and in the Lifeafter. ان الذين يحبون ان تشيع الفاحشة في الذين امنوا لهم عذاب اليم في الدنيا والاخرة||24:19|
|231||Do not hate or refuse a good advise.||7:79|
Be appreciative and grateful.
Express gratitude. Be persevere,
steadfast, patient, and give thanks. And to Allah Almighty very
few are really true appreciative servants:
"....but few of My servants are grateful! " (34:13) وقليل من عبادي الشكور
So, you can clearly see how important it is to Allah Almighty for you to be an appreciative person.
|14:5, 17:3, 31:31, 34:13, 34:19, 35:30, 35:34, 42:23, 42:33, 64:17|
Twice "nearest to
piety" اقرب للتقوى was mentioned in the
1- For forgiving
others' faults and debts وان تعفوا اقرب للتقوى.
Doing these two good deeds would bring the believing Muslim nearest to piety, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).
|234||Do not forget be courteous, and to show kindness, courtesy and generosity to one another: ولاتنسوا الفضل بينكم. Do not forget to maintain amicable relations among you. Be bountiful to one another, and maintain liberality between you. Always remember that.||2:237|
Be physically fit and
ready. Learn how to fight. Do not allow yourself to be a
victim of bullying and bullies. Do not be a bully yourself (see
the entries above for this). Physical fitness, learning Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) or
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), working out at home or at the gym,
staying in shape, and being physically fit and strong are Commanded by
1- Do not be lazy and/or demoralized. See Noble Verses 9:54, 4:142, 9:38, 9:46-47, 3:118, 17:19, 53:39, 80:8-12.
2- Laziness can also be a curse upon you from Allah Almighty: ولكن كره الله انبعاثهم فثبطهم.
[009:046] ....but God was averse to their being sent forth; so He made them lag behind....
The Almighty can cause you to become lazy if He detests you. Laziness can be a very bad sign and warning to you.
3- Always prepare yourself physically as best as you can: واعدوا لهم مااستطعتم من قوة
[008:060] Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power....
وقل اعملوا فسيرى الله عملكم ورسوله والمؤمنون
[009:105] And say: Work; so Allah will see your work and (so will) His Apostle and the believers....
لايستوي القاعدون من المؤمنين غير اولى الضرر والمجاهدون في سبيل الله
[004:095] Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives....
See also entries#: 37, 190, 196, 200, 202, 210, 217, 223 above.
|9:54, 4:142, 9:38, 9:46-47, 3:118, 17:19, 53:39, 80:8-12, 8:60, 9:105, 4:95|
Husbands are higher in
authority than the wives. The husband is also the lord of his
ولهن مثل الذي عليهن بالمعروف وللرجال عليهن درجة
[002:228] ....And they (women) have rights similar to those (of men) over them in kindness, and men are a degree above them وللرجال عليهن درجة....
واستبقا الباب وقدت قميصه من دبر والفيا سيدها لدى الباب
[012:025] So they both raced each other to the door, and she tore his shirt from the back: they both found her lord سيدها near the door....
The Al-Azeez was her husband (12:30). Here Allah Almighty called him "her lord".
The wife is also expected to be obedient to her husband:
[004:034] ....Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient فالصالحات قانتات, and guard in (the husband's) absence what God would have them guard.....
But men must treat their women with kindness, and to never abuse them, and to also never pressure them to give up from their wealth. A husband can not pressure or force his wife to give him money. See Noble Verses 30:21, 2:228-232, 2:236-237, 2:240-241, 2:233, 4:128, 4:19, 4:4, 4:25, 65:7, 4:34.
However, in countries where the wife automatically has access to her husband's properties, and she gets half of his wealth in case of divorce, then this Islamic Law about the husband can not demand from his wife to give him money may not be applicable. In the Islamic Law, what belongs to the the individual (man or woman) remains with him or her. No 50-50 split. Allah Almighty allowed the Muslims to nullify Islamic Laws if the situation is exceptional:
فمن اضطر غير باغ ولاعاد فلا اثم عليه
[002:173] ....But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- then is he guiltless....
See also Noble Verses 6:145, 16:115. In the West, where Islamic Sharia Laws don't apply, the Muslims are not obligated to follow all of Islam's Laws, especially the ones that are directly at odds with the country's laws.
The general rule between the husband and the wife in Islam is that the husband works and provides, - and he is responsible for all of the financial obligations, - and the wife is obedient and remains home and takes care of her home and the children, and guards her home in the absence of her husband:
الرجال قوامون على النساء بما فضل الله بعضهم على بعض وبما انفقوا من اموالهم فالصالحات قانتات حافظات للغيب بما حفظ الله واللاتي تخافون نشوزهن فعظوهن واهجروهن في المضاجع واضربوهن فان اطعنكم فلاتبغوا عليهن سبيلا ان الله كان عليا كبيرا
[004:034] Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because God has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient فالصالحات قانتات, and guard in (the husband's) absence what God would have them guard حافظات للغيب بما حفظ الله.....
The man under the Islamic Sharia Law is also responsible for the child support and alimony (allowance and maintenance) payments in case of divorce:
[002:241] For divorced women Maintenance (should be provided) on a reasonable (scale) متاع بالمعروف. This is a duty on the righteous.
[002:236] It is no crime in you if ye divorce your women ere you have yet touched them, or settled for them a settlement. But provide maintenance for them ومتعوهن; the wealthy according to his power, and the straitened in circumstances according to his power, must provide, in reason;- a duty this upon the kind.
[002:233] And mothers shall give suck to their children for two whole years; this is for those who desire to complete the period of suckling. And the man to whom the child belongs shall be responsible for their (the mothers') maintenance وعلى المولود له رزقهن and clothing according to usage.....
[060:011] (Even) if any of your wives leaves you for the disbeliever (without returning the nuptial dowry) still in your turn, pay the disbelievers whose wives leave them for you (an amount) equal to what they had spent. (Always) fear Allah, in Whom you (profess to) believe!
The Islamic Sharia court would determine the amount and duration of the payments. See also the Noble Verses listed above.
|30:21, 2:228-232, 2:236-237, 2:240-241, 2:233, 4:128, 4:19, 4:4, 4:25, 65:7, 4:34, 60:11|
While you must work very hard
and strive very hard in this life, but do not be too obsessed with the
treasures of this world for worldly and personal gain. Only the
evil ones are obsessed with this world. The life after is for the
believers. The disbelievers desire only this world and they don't
believe in the life after. This entry also answers the common
does GOD Almighty give the arrogant and wrong-doers much power in life and
takes it away from the good people?
ولولاان يكون الناس امة واحدة لجعلنا لمن يكفر بالرحمن لبيوتهم سقفا من فضة ومعارج عليها يظهرون
[043:033] And were it not that all mankind would have become of one community (all disbelievers, desiring worldly life only), We would have provided for those who disbelieve in the Most Beneficent (Allah), silver roofs for their houses, and elevators لبيوتهم سقفا من فضة ومعارج (and stair-ways, etc. of silver) whereby they ascend,
[11:15-16] Those who desire the life of the present and its glitter,- to them we shall pay (the price of) their deeds therein,- without diminution. They are those for whom There is nothing in the Hereafter But the Fire: vain Are the designs they frame therein, And of no effect Are the deeds that they do!
[002:086] These are the people who buy the life of this world at the price of the Hereafter: their penalty shall not be lightened nor shall they be helped.
"But when they forgot the warning they had received, We opened to them the gates of all (good) things, until, in the midst of their enjoyment of Our gifts, on a sudden, We called them to account, when lo! they were plunged in despair! (The Noble Quran, 6:44)"
"Let not the Unbelievers think that our respite to them is good for themselves: We grant them respite that they may grow in their iniquity: But they will have a shameful punishment. (The Noble Quran, 3:178)"
"Why were there not, among the generations before you, persons possessed of balanced good sense, prohibiting (men) from mischief in the earth - except a few among them whom We saved (from harm)? But the wrong-doers pursued the enjoyment of the good things of life which were given them, and persisted in sin. (The Noble Quran, 11:116)"
This life is not for the believers. Yes, we as believers must work hard and strive hard in life, and to always be prepared. See entries#: 37, 190, 196, 200, 202, 210, 217, 223, 235 above, and all of the other ones regarding being successful in this life, and giving to the poor and charity, and to never be arrogant. But we must not be too obsessed over this life for personal gains:
قل هل ننبئكم بالاخسرين
Shall We inform you who will be the
بالاخسرين اعمالا by their works ?
Muslims must always be accepting to everything Allah Almighty gives them in life from blessing and hardship. A Muslim must always be patient and seek Allah Almighty in Prayer (whether during the five-daily prayers or in wishing and asking):

"Nay, seek (Allah's) help With patient perseverance And prayer: It is indeed hard, except To those who bring a lowly spirit -- Who bear in mind the certainty That they are to meet their Lord, And that they are to return to Him. (The Noble Quran, 2:45-46)"
"O ye who believe! seek help With patient Perseverance And Prayer: for Allah is with those Who patiently preserve. (The Noble Quran, 2:153)"
"It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces Towards east or West; but it is righteousness- to believe in God and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfil the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the God-fearing. (The Noble Quran, 2:177)"
Those who show patience, Firmness and self-control; who are true (in word and deed); who worship devoutly; who spend (in the way of God); and who pray for forgiveness in the early hours of the morning. (The Noble Quran, 3:17)"
"O ye who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear God; that ye may prosper. (The Noble Quran, 3:200)"

Leave stubborn people alone.
While we are commanded by Allah Almighty to advise and to help, but when
people show clear stubbornness, such as internet trolls and others, then
we are commanded to leave them alone after we thoroughly give them the
1- Remind the Believers to do Good because it is beneficial to them وذكر فان الذكرى تنفع المؤمنين. Remind those who fear Allah Almighty's Warnings and Promises with the Holy Quran فذكر بالقران من يخاف وعيد. See Noble Verses 11:114, 51:55, 50:45, 87:9, 88:21, 16:125.
2- Remind those who eventually might listen to the Truth of the Glorious Quran and Islam, if you see benefit in reminding them - if the recipient is worthy of the advise فذكر ان نفعت الذكرى. And always invite people to Islam with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with people in ways that are best and most gracious.
3- For those who are stubborn, "leave them alone" ذرهم and "turn away from them" فتول عنهم. Do not argue with them and do not create unnecessary hostility and noise with them:
ذرهم في خوضهم يلعبون
[006:091] ...Then leave them alone and let them stay engrossed in their meaningless and playful debates.
فتول عنهم حتى حين
[037:174] So turn thou away from them for a little while حتى حين,
"for a little while حتى حين," here means till the time becomes right and it would be fruitful to come back to them. Otherwise, we are commanded to desert completely all nonsense talk and hostile environments:
[023:003] Who avoid vain talk; والذين هم عن اللغو معرضون[028:055] And when they hear vain talk, they turn away therefrom and say: "To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant. سلام عليكم لانبتغي الجاهلين"
When you hear rubbish talk or speech, or nonsense, or talk that is made of bad things, or vain, don't stay and listen to it. Pass by it (والذين لايشهدون الزور واذا مروا باللغو مروا كراما). Nonsense, vain and nonsensical talk are forbidden.
Now of course, if they impose themselves upon you and transgress limits, then respond back. See Noble Verses 68:12-13, 2:206, 57:23, 9:112, 23:1-11, 50:18. But otherwise, leave them to their nonsense.

Be brave! Allah Almighty
commanded the following aspects of bravery and courage in the Glorious
Quran, which all of them are mentioned in the entries above. Do a
word-search on them:
1- Be upright, true and genuine. Stand up for the Truth.
2- Be just and standup for justice, even if it's against yourself, your own father or any of your elders, your own people (anyone of them), or rich or poor. Be just to the disbelievers, even if your people are at war with their tribe or nation.
3- Command what is right and condemn what is wrong.
4- Do not be a trial or tumult to anyone, believer or disbeliever. Do not be a bad influence. Do not entice people to do evil things.
5- Do not lie or cheat, or take credit for what is not yours.
6- Standup for the weak and the persecuted against all oppression, and never oppress anyone unjustly.
7- Restrain your anger and pardon people as much as possible. Be forgiving, loving and kind. Also, show the "love of Allah" to all people through your actions.
8- Fight in the cause of Allah Almighty, and wage Jihad against all evil. Jihad in the Glorious Quran is:
(a)- Through actual physical fighting.
Of course, physical-fighting-Jihad has to be done only on the order of the Islamic ruler that you're under, unless it is an uprising against oppression and corruption. But this doesn't mean you become a terrorist and go blow up soft targets or police or anyone! Killing people is forbidden in Islam. Search the "do not kill" and "be just" entries above. The Glorious Quran spoke about the being just and genuine to the disbelievers and believers. Not just believers. Not only that, but we must also preach in Wisdom and beautiful preaching:
"Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance. (The Noble Quran, 16:125)"
The ordinary Muslims' Jihad is the Islamic propagation one through the media. Notice "....and argue with them..." This is through debates and Islamic media propagations. And it has to be done
1- "with wisdom and beautiful preaching".
2- "in ways that are best and most gracious".
Allah Almighty, however, also commanded us to leave the hostile, meaningless and fruitless debates and arguments. If a person is hostile and/or stubborn, then Allah Almighty commanded you to leave him. Search "hostile" in the entries above. But if the debating is ok, then Allah Almighty said:
[025:052] So obey not the disbelievers and strive against them by means of the Qur'an وجاهدهم به with a mighty striving.
Do your argumentations (debates) and Quran-Jihads through the media and in person. Believe me, this is both a monumental and a very difficult task for those who are committed to it, and it will win insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing) far more Muslim-converts than anything else.
|See the many Noble Verses above.|
Do not eat and drink
excessively. Do not be gluttonous. Do not eat unhealthy food
or in unhealthy ways. Do not embrace bad eating habits. Do
not eat and drink too much. Allah Almighty does not love those who
7:31 يابني ادم خذوا زينتكم عند كل مسجد وكلوا واشربوا ولاتسرفوا انه لايحب المسرفين
[007:031] O children of Adam ! take your adornment at every time and place of worship, and eat and drink كلوا واشربوا, but be not immoderate ولاتسرفوا; surely, HE does not love those who are immoderate انه لايحب المسرفين.
A person who is musrif مسرف, which is what al-musrifeen المسرفين above is derived from, is a person who is evil, corrupt, defiant. Take the following examples:
7:81 انكم لتاتون الرجال شهوة من دون النساء بل انتم قوم مسرفون
[007:081] "For ye practise your lusts on men in preference to women : ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds مسرفون."
Here the doomed sodomites of Sodom and Gomorrah were called مسرفون. So eating unhealthy food and/or embracing bad eating habits does indeed fall under sarf سرف, because the person is here is doing evil to him/herself via eating and drinking.
Other translations of Noble Verse 7:31 above:
[007:031] O Children of Adam! Look to your adornment at every place of worship, and eat and drink, but be not prodigal. Lo! He loveth not the prodigals.
[007:031] O children of Adam, take your decent apparel at every place of worship, and eat and drink, but be not guilty of excess; for He loveth not those who are guilty of excess.
[007:031] O children of Adam, you shall be clean and dress nicely when you go to the masjid. And eat and drink moderately; Surely, He does not love the gluttons.
Taking care of the orphans,
and being kind to them, and spending money on them, and protecting their
wealth, and guiding them in the Right Path is thoroughly commanded by
Allah Almighty in the Glorious Quran. See Entry# 5, 7, 8, 29,
115, 133, 215, 237 with the ample Noble Verses that I listed in
You are allowed to sponsor orphans and have them live with you. In this case, they would become like siblings (brothers and sisters) to you and/or to your children in your family:
2:220 في الدنيا والاخرة ويسألونك عن اليتامى قل اصلاح لهم خير وان تخالطوهم فاخوانكم والله يعلم المفسد من المصلح ولو شاء الله لاعنتكم ان الله عزيز حكيم
[002:220] (Their bearings) on this life and the Hereafter. They ask thee concerning orphans. Say: "The best thing to do is what is for their good; if ye mix their affairs with yours, they are your brethren وان تخالطوهم فاخوانكم; but God knows the man who means mischief from the man who means good. And if God had wished, He could have put you into difficulties: He is indeed Exalted in Power, Wise."
However, according to the Islamic Law, they're not your heirs, because they're not your biological children. They can not inherit from you unless you specify a will, which any Muslim is allowed to have a will for a 1/3 of his/her wealth to any person or people who are not part of the 2/3:
[004:012] Moreover ye may claim half of what your wives shall leave, if they have no issue; but if they have issue, then ye shall have the fourth part of what they shall leave, after the legacies which they shall bequeath, and the debts be paid. They also shall have the fourth part of what ye shall leave, in case ye have no issue; but if ye have issue, then they shall have the eighth part of what ye shall leave, after the legacies which ye shall bequeath, and your debts be paid. And if a man or woman's substance be inherited by a distant relation, and he or she have a brother or sister; each of them two shall have a sixth part of the estate. But if there be more than this number, they shall be equal sharers in a third part, after payment of the legacies which shall be bequeathed فهم شركاء في الثلث من بعد وصية يوصى بها, and the debts, without prejudice to the heirs. This is an ordinance from God: And God is knowing and gracious.
The Hadiths elaborate a lot more on this point. But it is an established Law, in the Islamic Shariah Law, that a person can write a will for a 1/3 of his/her wealth to whomever they please, provided that the beneficiary is not part of the remaining two thirds (2/3).
Does not Praying make
you a kafir (disbeliever, infidel)?
If one doesn't believe in Praying, like those who rejected Zakat which caused the battles of apostates, then he/she becomes a disbeliever.
If one is lazy, or physically tired and wouldn't Pray because he/she doesn't want to Pray a nonsensical Prayer, then he/she would not be an infidel. Here is the proof:
29:45 اتل مااوحي اليك من الكتاب واقم الصلاة ان الصلاة تنهى عن الفحشاء والمنكر ولذكر الله اكبر والله يعلم ماتصنعون[029:045] Recite that which hath been inspired in thee of the Scripture, and establish worship. Lo! worship preserveth from lewdness and iniquity, but verily remembrance of Allah is more important ولذكر الله اكبر. And Allah knoweth what ye do.
Notice in this Noble Verse Allah Almighty Commanded the Muslims to establish Prayer. But the Almighty finished the Noble Verse by saying that the remembrance of Allah is the greatest thing to do. The context here says that remembering Allah Almighty and Glorifying Him is greater than Prayer itself.
Therefore, one who does not Pray due to physical limitations would not be an infidel. I know there is a Hadith that says "The one who leaves Salat (Prayer) is a kafir (infidel)". The problem with such too-general Hadiths and the cults that abuse them is that they do not reveal the details. They're too general and too open that it is easy to use them to condemn all or most Muslims by the wholesale. This is completely wrong and shows a great deal of ignorance in Islam.
We all must Pray:
Please do not use this post as an excuse to further abuse your neglect of Prayer. I declare my innocence before Allah Almighty from all such people. I also seek refuge in Allah from all laziness and satan. Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, used to make a similar dua. We all must Pray to Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty Said:
[051:056] I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me.
See also Entries #1, 2, 3, 4, 16, 50, 59, 90, 126, 128, 190, 191, 201, 210, 216, 218, 237, above with the tens (10s) of Noble Verses listed in them that give the importance of Salat (Prayer) in Islam.
I myself do my Salat (Prayer) walhamdulillah (Thanks to Allah Almighty). But I just wanted to respond to those who might use such Hadiths as clubs to beat other Muslims' faiths and to belittle them and to eventually apostatize them.

Islam and the Noble Quran - Questions and Answers.
What is the place of Jesus, Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims in Islam?
GOD Almighty supposedly Changing His Mind (abrogation) in the Bible.
Bible Hoaxes on GOD:
Rebekah's story is a clear and
indisputable proof that many of the Bible's accounts are full
MORE LIES ON GOD: Rebuttal to Jochen Katz on FOX News' lying on their motto (Balanced Lies Rebuttal).
Who was the sacrificed son? Isaac or Ishmael? Even the altered Bible thoroughly supports that it was Ishmael  in many passages. And in Islam there is no "El" (God) in names as in Ishmael or Gabriel in Hebrew? Is the GOD of Islam different? Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened (as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah) in both Islam and Judaism .
Made to be prostitutes by GOD: In 2 Samuel 12:7-12, King David's wives were turned into ***** prostitutes by GOD Almighty  as a punishment for David's sins with Bathsheba. This means that GOD Almighty can create custom Laws for punishment even if they fully contradict GOD Almighty's Moral Code on morality and chastity. Also, seduction and RAPING of virgins isn't a physically punishable crime in the Bible. See Deuteronomy 22:25-29, Exodus 22:16-17.
Bible defines "Lying Spirits by GOD" to mean GOD MAKES YOU LIE; you have no will (2 Samuel 12:7-12).
Muslims are Commanded by Allah Almighty to show the Love of Allah to all of people through their treatment to them.
What does the Glorious Quran say about lying and about taking credit and recognition for what you do not deserve?
What does the Quran mean when It Says "Allah is the Greatest of all plotters"? Does it also mean "Allah is the Greatest of all deceivers"? Also, what does the Bible say about it?
What is Taqiya? Does Islam really permit lying? Or is this another lie from the anti-Islamics? Also allowed in the Bible's Old and New Testaments. Jesus also in John 7:1-12 practiced Taqiya.
Can a Believer be unjust and an evil doer? What does the Glorious Quran Say about this?
Can a Muslim purposely entice, tempt, or mislead a disbeliever into a wrongdoing? What does the Glorious Quran say about this?
What does the Noble Quran say about temptation in general, flirting and sexual enticement?
What does Allah Almighty say about tumult?
Are Muslims allowed to conceal or hide the Truth of Islam from anyone?
"Balanced Lies" Rebuttal.
Jesus was tempted for 40 days and 40 nights from satan, which caused him to covet - a sin forbidden in the Bible. Also refutation to the "satanic verses" lie against Islam.
Were the rubbish talk and and rubbish music of today prophesied in the Glorious Quran?
