O Children of Adam! Have your embellishments at every place of worship. Eat and drink, but do not be extravagant. Surely He does not love the extravagant.
Say: “Who has prohibited the embellishment of Allah which He has brought forth for His servants and clean things from the provision”? That is for those who believe (who are âmenû, who wish to reach Allah before death) in the life of this world. And exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection as well. Thus do We explain the Verses individually for a people who know.
Say: “My Lord has only prohibited indecencies, those of them that are apparent as well as those that are concealed and the sin and rebellion without justice, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down any proof, and that you say against Allah what you do not know”.
And for every nation (Umma) there is an appointed term. Once their appointed term arrives, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede.
O Children of Adam! Whenever come to you messengers from among you who narrate to you My Verses, then whoever becomes the owner of piety (Takwa) and improves the soul (cleanses the soul) on them there is no fear nor do they grieve.
And those who reject our Verses and treat them with arrogance, these are the inmates of the Fire, they shall abide in it forever.
Who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah or rejects His Verses? They are those who will receive their portion of the Book (Qur’an). When Our messengers (the angel of death and his assistants) come to them to take their souls, they (the angels) told them: “Where is that which you used to call upon besides Allah”? They said: “They are gone away from us and they bore witness against themselves (their own souls) that they were disbelievers”.
