Quranic passages on the obedience to Allah (Mighty and majestic) and obedience to His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Yusuf Al-Kandhelwi from his text 'The Life of the companions'

Translation complied by Arfan Shah



The Opening 1-7

"In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate; Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all

Beings; the All-merciful, the All-compassionate; the Master of the Day of Doom. Thee only we serve;

Thee alone we pray for succour. Guide us in the straight path; the path of those whom Thou hast

blessed, not of those against whom Thou art wrathful, nor of those who are astray."


The Family of 'Imrân 3:51

"Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path."


The Cattle 6:161-3

"Say: As for me, my Lord hath guided me unto a straight path, a right religion, the community of

Abraham, the upright, who was no idolater."

"Say: my worship and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

He hath no partner. This am I commanded, and I am first of those who surrender (unto Him)."

The Heights 7:158

"Say: 'O mankind, I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, of Him to whom belongs the kingdom of

the heavens and of the earth. There is no god but He. He gives life, and causes death. Believe then in

Allah, and in His Messenger, the Prophet of the common folk, who believes in God and His words,

and follow him; haply so you will be guided."


The Women 4:59

"O believers! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If

you differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in God

and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination."

64

"We did not send any Messenger but to be obeyed by the leave of Allah. Had they, after having

wronged themselves, come to you and sought forgiveness from Allah, and had the Messenger prayed

for their forgiveness, they would certainly have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful."


Spoils of war 8:20

"O believers, obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not turn away from Him, even as you are listening."

46

"And obey Allah, and His Messenger, and do not quarrel together, and so lose heart, and your power depart; and be patient; surely Allah is with the patient."

The Family of Imran 3:132

"And obey Allah and the Messenger, that ye may find mercy."


The Light 24:51 - 56

"All that the believers say, when they are called to Allah and His Messenger, that he may judge between them, is that they say, 'We hear, and we obey'; those are the prosperous. Whosever obeys Allah and His Messenger, and fears Allah and has awe of Him, they are the triumphant. They swear by Allah solemnly that, if thou order them, they will go forth. Say: Swear not; known obedience (is better). Allah is Informed of what ye do. Say: 'Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger; then, if you turn away, only upon him rests what is laid on him, and upon you rests what is laid on you. If you obey him, you will be guided. It is only for the Messenger to deliver the manifest Message.' Allah hath promised such of you as believe and do good work that He will surely make them to succeed (the present rulers) in the earth even as He caused those who were before them to succeed (others); and that He will surely establish for them their religion which He hath approved for them, and will give them in exchange safety after their fear. They serve Me. They ascribe no thing as partner unto Me. Those who disbelieve henceforth, they are the miscreants. Perform the prayer, and pay the alms, and obey the Messenger, haply so you will find mercy."


The Clan 33:70-71

"O believers, Guard your duty to Allah, and speak words straight to the point; and He will set right your deeds for you and will forgive you your sins. Whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has won a mighty triumph."


Spoils of war 8:1-4

"They will question thee concerning the spoils. Say: 'The spoils belong to Allah and the Messenger; so fear you Allah, and set things right between you, and obey you Allah and His Messenger, if you are believers. Those only are believers who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His signs are recited to them, it increases them in faith, and in their Lord they put their trust. Those who perform the prayer, and expend of what We have provided them. Those in truth are the believers; they have degrees with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous provision."

24

"O believers, respond to Allah and the Messenger when He calls you to what gives you life, and be sure that Allah intervenes between man and his heart, and that to Him you shall be gathered."


The Family of Imran 3:32

"Say: 'Obey Allah, and the Messenger.' But if they turn their backs, Allah loves not the unbelievers."


The Women 4: 13-14

"Those are Allahs' bounds. Whosever obeys Allah and His Messenger, He will admit him to gardens underneath which rivers flow, therein dwelling forever; that is the mighty triumph. But whosever disobeys Allah, and His Messenger, and transgresses His bounds, him He will admit to a Fire, therein dwelling forever, and for him there awaits a humbling chastisement."

69-70

"Whosoever obeys Allah, and the Messenger they are with those whom Allah has blessed, Prophets, just men, martyrs, the righteous; good companions they! That is the bounty from Allah; Allah suffices as One who knows."

80

"Whosoever obeys the Messenger, thereby obeys Allah; and whosoever turns his back - We have not sent thee to be a watcher over them."

Repentance 9:71

"And the believers, men and women, are protecting friends one of another; they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and they establish worship and they pay the poor-due, and they obey Allah and His Messenger. As for these, Allah will have mercy on them. Allah is Mighty, Wise."


The Family of Imran 3:31

"Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."


The Clans 33:21

"You have had an excellent example in Allah's Messenger for whosoever hopes for God and the Last Day, and remembers God often."


The Gathering 59:7

"Whatever spoils Allah has passed on to His Messenger from the people of the towns is for Allah and for the Messenger, and for the kinsmen and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, so that it may not circulate only between the rich among you. And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you from, abstain (from it). And fear Allah; Allah is stern in reprisal."
