By Muhammad Yahya Al Toom
20) What is the likeness of `lsa (Jesus) before Allah?
Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, “Be,” and he was. (Al-Ma’idah 3:59)
21) What did Allah say about Mary?
And [mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds. * O Mary, be devoutly obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow with those who bow [in prayer].” * That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. And you were not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for Mary. Nor were you with them when they disputed. * [And mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary – distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ]. * He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous.” * She said, “My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?” [The angel] said, “Such is Allah ; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is. (Aal `Imran 3:42-47)
22) Was Jesus crucified and died on the cross?
And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain. Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise. (An-Nisa‘ 4:157-158)
23) Was Jesus the son of God (Allah)?
Say, “He is Allah , [who is] One. * Allah , the Eternal Refuge. * He neither begets nor is born. * Nor is there to Him any equivalent.” (Al-Ikhlas 112:1-4)
24) How could you be secure?
They who believe and do not mix their belief with injustice – those will have security, and they are [rightly] guided. (Al-An`am 6:82)
25) What is the life of this world?
Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion. (Al-Hadid 57:20)
26) Whatever of blessings and good things you have, is it from Allah?
And whatever you have of favor – it is from Allah . Then when adversity touches you, to Him you cry for help. (An-Nahl 16:53)
27) How could you guarantee the blessings of Allah?
And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.'” (Ibrahim 14:7)
28) How could you save yourself from a painful torment?
O you who have believed, shall I guide you to a transaction that will save you from a painful punishment? [It is that] you believe in Allah and His Messenger and strive in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives. That is best for you, if you should know. (As-Saff 61:10-11)
29) Whosoever puts his trust in Allah, what will happen to him?
And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent. (At-Talaq 65:3)
30) What is the destination of the disbelievers?
So today no ransom will be taken from you or from those who disbelieved. Your refuge is the Fire. It is most worthy of you, and wretched is the destination. (Al-Hadid 57:15)
31) What is the destination of the believers?
But those who believe and do righteous deeds – We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide forever. For them therein are purified spouses, and We will admit them to deepening shade. (An-Nisa’ 4:57)
32) How could you be happy?
Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do. (An-Nahl 16:97)
