O you who believe (who are âmenû)! Keep away from the conjecture very much. Indeed some conjectures are sins, and do not spy (on the others’ mistakes) nor let some of you gossip about others. Does one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Of course you dislike it. And have piety towards Allah; surely Allah is the One Who accepts the repentance, the Most Merciful.
O mankind! Surely We have created you from a male and a female, and made you nations and tribes, that you may get acquainted with one another (your lineage). Surely the most honorable of you in the Presence of Allah is he who is the most pious of you (not by your race or lineage). Surely Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.
The Arabs said: “We have become âmenû”. Say (to them): “You have not become âmenû (You have not wished to reach Allah before death). But say: ‘We have surrendered’. The Faith has not yet entered (into) your hearts; and if you obey Allah and His Messenger (if you wish to reach Allah), He will not diminish anything of your deeds. Surely Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful”.
The (true) believers are only those who believe in Allah and His Messenger, then they did not fall into suspicion. And those who struggle hard in the Way of Allah with their wealth and lives, they indeed, they are the loyal ones.
Say: “Are you teaching your religion to Allah? And Allah knows what is in the heavens and in the earth; and Allah is All-Knowing of everything.
They want to lay you under an obligation by becoming by submitting. Say: “Do not lay me under obligation by your becoming Islam”. Nay, but Allah lays you under an obligation by guiding you to the Faith if you are loyal.
Surely Allah knows the Unseen of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is the All-Seer of what you do.
