The Secret Beyond Matter

Signs to disobedience and rebellion in Qur’an

We said to the angels, ‘Prostrate to Adam!’ and they prostrated, with the exception of Satan. He refused and was arrogant and was one of the unbelievers. (Surat Al-Baqara, 34)

When they are told, ‘Do not cause corruption on the earth,’ they say, ‘We are only putting things right.’ (Surat Al-Baqara, 11)

No indeed! They are the corrupters, but they are not aware of it. (Surat Al-Baqara, 12)

Those who break Allah’s contract after it has been agreed, and sever what Allah has commanded to be joined, and cause corruption on the earth, it is they who are the lost.  (Surat Al-Baqara, 27)

And when you said, ‘Moses, we will not put up with just one kind of food so ask your Lord to supply to us some of what the earth produces – its green vegetables, cucumbers, grains, lentils and onions,’ he said, ‘Do you want to replace what is better with what is inferior? Go back to Egypt, then you will have what you are asking for.’ Abasement and destitution were stamped upon them. They brought down anger from Allah upon themselves. That was because they rejected Allah’s Signs and killed the Prophets without any right to do so. That was because they rebelled and went beyond the limits. (Surat Al-Baqara, 61)

You are well aware of those of you who broke the Sabbath. We said to them, ‘Be apes, despised, cast out.’ (Surat Al-Baqara, 65)

We made it an exemplary punishment for those there then, and those coming afterwards, and a warning to those who have fear of Allah. (Surat Al-Baqara, 66)

Do you really hope they will follow you in belief when a group of them heard Allah’s Word and then, after grasping it, knowingly distorted it? (Surat Al-Baqara, 75)

When they meet those who have belief in Allah, they say, ‘We have belief in Allah.’ But when they go apart with one another, they say, ‘Why do you speak to them about what Allah has disclosed to you, so they can use it as an argument against you before your Lord? Will you not use your intellect?’ (Surat Al-Baqara, 76)

Remember when We made a covenant with the tribe of Israel: ‘Worship none but Allah and be good to your parents and to relatives and orphans and the very poor. And speak good words to people. And establish daily prayer and give alm.’ But then you turned away – except a few of you – you turned aside. (Surat Al-Baqara, 83)

Then you are the people who are killing one another and expelling a group among you from their homes, ganging up against them in wrongdoing and enmity. Yet if they are brought to you as captives, you ransom them, when it was forbidden for you to expel them in the first place! Do you, then, believe in one part of the Book and reject the other? What repayment will there be for any of you who do that except disgrace in this world? And on the Day of Rising, they will be returned to the harshest of punishments. Allah is not unaware of what you do. (Surat Al-Baqara, 85)

We gave Moses the Book and sent a succession of Messengers after him. We gave ‘Jesus, son of Maryam, the Clear Signs and reinforced him with the Purest Soul. Why then, whenever a Messenger came to you with something your lower selves did not desire, did you grow arrogant, and deny some of them and murder others? (Surat Al-Baqara, 87)

What an evil thing they have sold themselves for in rejecting what Allah has sent down, outraged that Allah should send down His favour on whichever of His slaves He wills. They have brought down anger upon anger on themselves. The unbelievers will have a humiliating punishment. (Surat Al-Baqara, 90)

When they are told, ‘Believe in what Allah has sent down,’ they say, ‘Our belief is in what was sent down to us,’ and they reject anything beyond that, even though it is the truth, confirming what they have. Say, ‘Why then, if you are believers, did you previously kill the Prophets of Allah?’ (Surat Al-Baqara, 91)

Remember when We made a covenant with you and lifted up the Mount above your heads: ‘Take hold vigorously of what We have given you and listen.’ They said, ‘We hear and disobey.’ They were made to drink the Calf into their hearts because of their disbelief. Say, ‘If you are believers, what an evil thing your belief has made you do.’  (Surat Al-Baqara, 93)

Or do you want to question your Messenger as Moses was questioned before? Anyone who exchanges belief for disbelief has definitely gone astray from the level way. (Surat Al-Baqara, 108)

When they are told, ‘Follow what Allah has sent down to you,’ They say, ‘We are following what we found our fathers doing.’ What, even though their fathers did not understand a thing and were not guided! (Surat Al-Baqara, 170)

When he leaves you, he goes about the earth corrupting it, destroying crops and animals. Allah does not love corruption. (Surat Al-Baqara, 205)

When he is told to have fear of Allah, he is seized by pride which drives him to wrongdoing. Hell will be enough for him! What an evil resting-place! (Surat Al-Baqara, 206)

They will ask you about the Sacred Month and fighting in it. Say, ‘Fighting in it is a serious matter; but barring access to the Way of Allah and rejecting Him and barring access to the Masjid al-Unlawful and expelling its people from it are far more serious in the sight of Allah. Corruption is worse than killing.’ They will not stop fighting you until they make you revert from your religion, if they are able. As for any of you who revert from their deen and die as unbeliever, their actions will come to nothing in the world and the Hereafter. They are the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (Surat Al-Baqara, 217)

The religion with Allah is Islam. Those given the Book only differed after knowledge had come to them, envying one another. As for those who reject Allah’s Signs, Allah is swift at reckoning. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 19)

They will be plunged into abasement wherever they are found, unless they have a treaty with Allah and with the people. They have brought down anger from Allah upon themselves, and they have been plunged into destitution. That was because they rejected Allah’s Signs and killed the Prophets without any right to do so. That was because they disobeyed and went beyond the limits. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 112)

And so that He would know the hypocrites. They were told, ‘Come and fight in the Way of Allah or at least help defend us.’ They said, ‘If we knew how to fight, we would certainly follow you.’ They were closer to disbelief that day than to belief, saying with their mouths what was not in their hearts. And Allah knows best what they are hiding. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 167)

As for those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and overstep His limits, We will admit them into a Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. They will have a humiliating punishment. (Surat An-Nisa’, 14)

On that day those who were unbelievers and disobeyed the Messenger will wish that they were one with the level earth. They will not be able to hide a single circumstance from Allah. (Surat An-Nisa’, 42)

Some of the Jews distort the true meaning of words, saying,‘We hear and disobey,’ and ‘Listen without listening,’ and ‘Ra’ina!’ twisting them with their tongues, disparaging the religion. If they had said, ‘We hear and we obey,’ and ‘Listen,’ and, ‘Undhurna!’ that would have been better for them and more upright. But Allah has cursed them for their disbelief. Very few of them have belief. (Surat An-Nisa’, 46)

When they are told, ‘Come to what Allah has sent down and to the Messenger,’ you see the munafiqun turning away from you completely. (Surat An-Nisa’, 61)

We sent no Messenger except to be obeyed by Allah’s permission. If only when they wronged themselves they had come to you and asked Allah’s forgiveness and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them they would have found Allah Ever-Returning, Most Merciful. (Surat An-Nisa’, 64)

No, by your Lord, they are not believers until they make you their judge in the disputes that break out between them, and then find no resistance within themselves to what you decide and submit themselves completely. (Surat An-Nisa’, 65)

If We had directed them to kill themselves or leave their homes, they would not have done so, except for a very few. But if they had done what they were urged to do, it would have been better for them and far more strengthening. (Surat An-Nisa’, 66)

They have the word, ‘Obedience!’ on their tongues but when they leave your presence, a group of them spend the night plotting to do other than what you say. Allah is recording their nocturnal plotting. So let them be and put your trust in Allah. Allah suffices as a Guardian. (Surat An-Nisa’, 81)

But if anyone opposes the Messenger after the guidance has become clear to him, and follows other than the path of the believers, We will hand him over to whatever he has turned to, and We will roast him in Hell. What an evil destination! (Surat An-Nisa’, 115)

The People of the Book will ask you to bring down a Book from heaven to them. They asked Moses for even more than that. They said, ‘Let us see Allah with our own eyes.’ So the lightning-bolt struck them down for their wrongdoing. Then they adopted the Calf after the Clear Signs had come to them, but We pardoned them for that and gave Moses clear authority. (Surat An-Nisa’, 153)

We lifted up the Mount above their heads in accordance with the covenant they had made, and We said to them, ‘Enter the gate prostrating,’ and We said to them, ‘Do not break the Sabbath,’ and We made a binding covenant with them. (Surat An-Nisa’, 154)

But because of their breaking of their covenant, We have cursed them and made their hearts hard. They distort the true meaning of words and have forgotten a good portion of what they were reminded of. You will never cease to come upon some act of treachery on their part, except for a few of them. Yet pardon them, and overlook. Allah loves good-doers. (Surat Al-Ma’ida, 13)

They said, ‘We will never enter it, Moses, as long as they are there. So you and your Lord go and fight. We will stay sitting here.’ (Surat Al-Ma’ida, 24)

He said, ‘My Lord, I have no control over anyone but myself and my brother, so make a clear distinction between us and this deviant people.’ (Surat Al-Ma’ida, 25)

We created you and then formed you and then We said to the angels, ‘Prostrate before Adam,’ and they prostrated – except for Satan. He was not among those who prostrated. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 11)

He said, ‘What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you to?’ He replied, ‘I am better than him. You created me from fire and You created him from clay.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 12)

He said, ‘Descend from Heaven. It is not for you to be arrogant in it. So get out! You are one of the abased.’  (Surat Al-A‘raf, 13)

He said, ‘Grant me a reprieve until the day they are raised up.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 14)

He said, ‘You are one of the reprieved.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 15)

He said, ‘By Your misguidance of me, I will lie in ambush for them on your straight path. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 16)

Then I will come at them, from infront of them and behind them, from their right and from their left. You will not find most of them thankful. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 17)

He said, ‘Get out of it, reviled and driven out. As for those of them who follow you, I will fill up Hell with every one of you.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 18)

So he enticed them to do it by means of trickery. Then when they tasted the tree, their private parts were disclosed to them and they started stitching together the leaves of the Garden in order to cover themselves. Their Lord called out to them,‘Did I not forbid you this tree and say to you, “Satan is an outright enemy to you”? (Surat Al-A‘raf, 22)

The ruling circle of those of his people who were arrogant said, ‘We will drive you out of our city, Shu‘ayb, you and those who have iman along with you, unless you return to our religion.’ He said, ‘What, even though we detest it?  (Surat Al-A‘raf, 88)

The ruling circle of those of his people who were unbelievers said, ‘If you follow Shu‘ayb, you will definitely be lost.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 90)

So he turned away from them and said, ‘My people, I transmitted My Lord’s message to you and gave you good counsel. Why should I grieve for people of disbelief?’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 93)

We did not find many of them worthy of their contract. We found most of them deviators. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 102)

And then, after them, We sent Moses with Our Signs to Pharaoh and his ruling circle but they wrongfully rejected them. See the final fate of the corrupters! (Surat Al-A‘raf, 103)

They said, ‘We suffered harm before you came to us and after you came to us.’ He said, ‘It may well be that your Lord is going to destroy your enemy and make you the successors in the land so that He can see how you behave.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 129)

I will divert from My Signs all those who are arrogant in the earth without any right. If they see every Sign, they will not believe in it. If they see the way of right guidance, they will not take it as a way. But if they see the way of error, they will take that as a way. That is because they denied Our Signs and paid no attention to them. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 146)

We conveyed the tribe of Israel across the sea and they came upon some people who were devoting themselves to some idols which they had. They said, ‘Moses, give us a god just as these people have gods.’ He said, ‘You are indeed an ignorant people. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 138)

What these people are doing is destined for destruction. What they are doing is purposeless.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 139)

He said, ‘Should I seek something other than Allah as a god for you when He has favoured you over all other beings?’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 140)

After he left, Moses’s people adopted a calf made from their ornaments, a form which made a lowing sound. Did they not see that it could not speak to them or guide them to any way? They adopted it and so they were wrongdoers. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 148)

When Moses returned to his people in anger and great sorrow, he said, ‘What an evil thing you did in my absence after I left! Did you want to hasten your Lord’s command?’ He threw down the Tablets and seized hold of his brother’s head, dragging him towards him. Harun said, ‘Son of my mother, The people oppressed me and almost killed me. Do not give my enemies cause to gloat over me. Do not include me with the wrongdoing people.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 150)

Those who follow the Messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, whom they find written down with them in the Torah and the Gospel, commanding them to do right and forbidding them to do wrong, making good things lawful for them and bad things unlawful for them, relieving them of their heavy loads and the chains which were around them. Those who believe in him and honour him and help him, and follow the Light that has been sent down with him, they are the ones who are successful.’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 157)

Ask them about the town which was by the sea when they broke the Sabbath – when their fish came to them near the surface on their Sabbath day but did not come on the days which were not their Sabbath. In this way We put them to the test because they were deviators. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 163)

When they were insolent about what they had been forbidden to do, We said to them, ‘Be apes, despised, cast out!’ (Surat Al-A‘raf, 166)

Then your Lord announced that He would send against them until the Day of Rising people who would inflict an evil punishment on them. Your Lord is Swift in Retribution. And He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 167)

And We divided them into nations in the earth. Some of them are rightious and some are other than that. We tried them with good and evil so that hopefully they would return. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 168)

Those who are in the presence of your Lord do not consider themselves too great to worship Him. They glorify His praise and they prostrate to Him. (Surat Al-A‘raf, 206)

Just as your Lord brought you out from your house with truth, even though a group of the believers disliked it. (Surat Al-Anfal, 5)

Arguing with you about the Truth after it had been made clear as though they were being driven to their death with open eyes. (Surat Al-Anfal, 6)

And when your Lord revealed to the angels, ‘I am with you so make those who believe, firm. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who are unbelievers, so strike their necks and strike all their finger joints!’ (Surat Al-Anfal, 12)

This was because they were hostile to Allah and His Messenger. If anyone is hostile to Allah and His Messenger, Allah is severe in retribution. (Surat Al-Anfal, 13)

That is your reward, so taste it. The unbelievers will also have the punishment of the Fire. (Surat Al-Anfal, 14)

You who believe! Obey Allah and His Messenger. And do not turn away from Him when you are able to hear. (Surat Al-Anfal, 20)

Do not be like those who say, ‘We hear,’ when they do not hear. (Surat Al-Anfal, 21)

The worst of beasts in Allah’s sight are the deaf and dumb who have no intellect. (Surat Al-Anfal, 22)

If Allah knew of any good in them, He would have made them able to hear. But even if He had made them able to hear, they would still have turned away. (Surat Al-Anfal, 23)

You who believe! respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life! Know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that you will be gathered to Him. (Surat Al-Anfal, 24)

You who believe! do not betray Allah and His Messenger, and do not knowingly betray your trusts. (Surat Al-Anfal, 27)

Obey Allah and His Messenger and do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappear. And be steadfast. Allah is with the steadfast. (Surat Al-Anfal, 46)

Say: ‘If your fathers or your sons or your brothers or your wives or your tribe, or any wealth you have acquired, or any business you fear may slump, or any house which pleases you, are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger and struggle in His Way, then wait until Allah brings about His command. Allah does not guide people who are deviators.’ (Surat At-Tawba, 24)

You who believe! What is the matter with you that when you are told, ‘Go out and fight in the way of Allah,’ you sink down heavily to the earth? Are you happier with the earth than the Hereafter? Yet the enjoyment of the earth is very small compared to that of the Hereafter. (Surat At-Tawba, 38)

If you do not go out to fight, He will punish you with a painful punishment and substitute another people in your place. You will not harm Him in any way. Allah has power over all things. (Surat At-Tawba, 39)

If it had been a case of easy gains and a short journey, they would have followed you, but the distance was too great for them. They will swear by Allah: ‘Had we been able to, we would have gone out with you.’ They are destroying their own selves. Allah knows that they are lying. (Surat At-Tawba, 42)

Nothing prevents what they give from being accepted from them but the fact that they have rejected Allah and His Messenger, and that they only come to perform prayer lethargically, and that they only give reluctantly. (Surat At-Tawba, 54)

If only they had been pleased with what Allah and His Messenger had given them and had said, ‘Allah is enough for us. Allah will give us of His bounty as will His Messenger. It is to Allah that we make our plea.’ (Surat At-Tawba, 59)

Among them are some who insult the Prophet, saying he is only an ear. Say, ‘An ear of good for you, believing in Allah and believing in the believers, and a mercy for those among you who believe.’ As for those who insult the Messenger of Allah, they will have a painful punishment. (Surat At-Tawba, 61)

They swear to you by Allah in order to please you, but it would be more fitting for them to please Allah and His Messenger if they are believers. (Surat At-Tawba, 62)

Do they not know that whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger, will have the Fire of Hell, remaining in it timelessly, for ever? That is the great disgrace. (Surat At-Tawba, 63)

If you ask them they will say, ‘We were only joking and playing around.’ Say: ‘Would you make a mockery of Allah and of His Signs and of His Messenger? (Surat At-Tawba, 65)

Do not try to excuse yourselves. You have become unbelievers after having belief. If one group of you is pardoned, another group will be punished for being evildoers.’ (Surat At-Tawba, 66)

The men and women of the believers are friends of one another. They command what is right and forbid what is wrong, and establish performing prayer and give alm, and obey Allah and His Messenger. They are the people on whom Allah will have mercy. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (Surat At-Tawba, 71)

O Prophet, struggle against the unbelievers and hypocrites and be harsh with them. Their shelter will be Hell. What an evil destination!  (Surat At-Tawba, 73)

So He has punished them by putting hypocrisy in their hearts until the day they meet Him because they failed Allah in what they promised Him and because they lied. (Surat At-Tawba, 77)

You can ask forgiveness for them, or not ask forgiveness for them. Even if you asked forgiveness for them seventy times, Allah still would not forgive them. That is because they have rejected Allah and His Messenger. Allah does not guide deviant people. (Surat At-Tawba, 80)

Those who were left behind were glad to stay behind the Messenger of Allah. They did not want to struggle with their wealth and themselves in the Way of Allah. They said, ‘Do not go out to fight in the heat.’ Say: ‘The Fire of Hell is much hotter, if they only understood.’ (Surat At-Tawba, 81)

Let them laugh little and weep much, in repayment for what they have earned. (Surat At-Tawba, 82)

If Allah returns you to a group of them, and they ask you for permission to go out, say, ‘You will never go out with me, nor will you ever fight an enemy with me. You were happy to stay behind the first time, so stay behind with those who are left behind.’ (Surat At-Tawba, 83)

Never pray over any of them who die or stand at their graves. They rejected Allah and His Messenger and died as deviators. (Surat At-Tawba, 84)

There are only grounds against those who ask you for permission to stay when they are rich. They were pleased to be among those who were left behind. Allah has sealed up their hearts so they do not know. (Surat At-Tawba, 93)

They will make excuses to you when you return to them. Say: ‘Do not make excuses, we will not believe you. Allah has already informed us about you. Allah will see your actions, as will His Messenger. Then you will be returned to the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible, and He will inform you regarding what you did.’ (Surat At-Tawba, 94)

They will swear to you by Allah when you return to them, so that you leave them alone. Leave them alone, then! They are filth. Their shelter will be Hell as repayment for what they did. (Surat At-Tawba, 95)

As for those who have set up a mosque, causing harm and out of disbelief, to create division between the believers, and in readiness for those who previously made war on Allah and His Messenger, they will swear, ‘We only desired the best.’ But Allah bears witness that they are truly liars. (Surat At-Tawba, 107)

The buildings they have built will not cease to be a bone of contention in their hearts, until their hearts are cut to shreds. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Surat At-Tawba, 110)

Allah has turned towards the Prophet, and the Muhajirun and the Ansar, those who followed him at the ‘time of difficulty’, after the hearts of a group of them had almost deviated. Then He turned towards them – He is All-Gentle, Most Merciful to them – (Surat At-Tawba, 117)

But if they turn away, say, ‘Allah is enough for me. There is no god but Him. I have put my trust in Him. He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.’ (Surat At-Tawba, 129)

No, the fact is that they have denied something which their knowledge does not embrace and the meaning of which has not yet reached them. In the same way those before them also denied the truth. See the final fate of the wrongdoers! (Surah Yunus, 39)

Among them there are some who believe in it and some who do not. Your Lord best knows the corrupters. (Surah Yunus, 40)

If they deny you, say, ‘I have my actions and you have your actions. You are not responsible for what I do and I am not responsible for what you do.’ (Surah Yunus, 41)

Among them there are some who listen to you. But can you make the deaf hear even though they cannot understand? (Surah Yunus, 42)

Among them there are some who look at you. But can you guide the blind, even though they cannot see? (Surah Yunus, 43)

No one believed in Moses except for a few of his peoples youth out of fear that Pharaoh, and the elders, would persecute them. Pharaoh was high and mighty in the land. He was one of the profligate. (Surah Yunus, 83)

The ruling circle of those of his people who were unbelievers said, ‘We do not see you as anything but a human being like ourselves.

He said, ‘I will take refuge on a mountain; It will protect me from the flood.’ He said, ‘There is no protection from Allah’s command today except for those He has mercy on.’ The waves surged in between them and he was among the drowned. (Surah Hud, 43)

They said, ‘Hud, you have not brought us any clear sign. We will not forsake our gods for what you say. We do not believe you. (Surah Hud, 53)

That was ‘Ad. They denied the Signs of their Lord and disobeyed His Messengers and followed the command of every obdurate tyrant. (Surah Hud, 59)

They said, ‘Salih, we had great hopes in you before this happened. Do you forbid us to worship what our fathers worshipped? We have grave doubts about what you are calling us to.’ (Surah Hud, 62)

When I have formed him and breathed My Soul into him, fall down in prostration in front of him!’ (Surat Al-Hijr, 29)

Then the angels prostrated all together, every one of them –(Surat Al-Hijr, 30)

Except Satan. He disdained to be one of the prostrators. –(Surat Al-Hijr, 31)

He said, ‘Satan, what is it that prevents you being among the prostrators?’ (Surat Al-Hijr, 32)

He said, ‘I will not prostrate to a human being whom You have created out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.’ (Surat Al-Hijr, 33)

The curse will be on you till the Day of Reckoning.’ (Surat Al-Hijr, 35)

He said, ‘My Lord, grant me a reprieve until the Day they are raised again.’ (Surat Al-Hijr, 36)

Until the Day whose time is known.’ (Surat Al-Hijr, 38)

With the exception of the family of Lut, all of whom We will sav. (Surat Al-Hijr, 59)

He said, ‘Do you see this creature you have honoured over me? If You reprieve me till the Day of Rising, I will be the master of his descendants except for a very few.’ (Surat Al-Isra’, 62)

When We said to the angels, ‘Prostrate yourselves to Adam,’ they prostrated with the exception of Satan. He was one of the jinn and wantonly deviated from his Lord’s command. Do you take him and his offspring as protectors apart from Me when they are your enemy? How evil is the exchange the wrongdoers make! (Surat Al-Kahf, 50)

Father, do not worship Satan. Satan was disobedient to the All-Merciful. (Surah Maryam, 44)

He said, ‘We tried your people after you left and the Samaritan has misguided them.’ (Surah Ta Ha, 85)

Moses returned to his people in anger and great sorrow. He said, ‘My people, did not your Lord make you a handsome promise? Did the fulfilment of the contract seem too long to you or did you want to unleash your Lord’s anger upon yourselves, so you broke your promise to me?’ (Surah Ta Ha, 86)

They said, ‘We did not break our promise to you of our own volition. But we were weighed down with the heavy loads of the people’s jewelry and we threw them in, for that is what the Samaritan did.’ (Surah Ta Ha, 87)
