SURAH AL-BAQARAH (Chapter of the Heifer)

29. He it is Who created for you all that is in the earth. Then turned He to the heaven, and fashioned it as seven heavens. And He is Knower of all things.

30. And when your Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to place a viceroy in the earth, they said: Will You place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Your praise and sanctify You? He said: Surely I know that which you know not.

31. And He taught Adam all the names, then showed them to the angels, saying: Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful.

32. They said: Be glorified! We have no knowledge saving that which You have taught us. Lo! You, only You, are the Knower, the Wise.

33. He said: O Adam! Inform them of their names, and when he had informed them of their names, He said: Did I not tell you that I know the secret of the heavens and the earth? And I know that which you disclose and which you hide.

34. And when We said unto the angels: Prostrate yourselves before Adam, they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He demurred through pride, and so became a disbeliever.

SURAH Al-A’RAF (Chapter of the Battlements)

12. He said: What hindered you that you did not fall prostrate when I bade you? (Iblis) said: I am better than him. You created me of fire while him You did create of mud.

13. He said: Then go down hence! It is not for you to show pride here, so go forth! Lo! You art of those degraded.

14. He said: Reprieve me till the day when they are raised (from the dead).

15. He said: Lo! You are of those reprieved.

16. He said: Now, because You have sent me astray, verily I shall lurk in ambush for them on Your Right Path.

17. Then I shall come upon them from before them and from behind them and from their right hands and from their left hands; and You will not find most of them beholden (unto You).

18. He said: Go forth from hence, degraded, banished. As for such of them as follow you, surely I will fill hell with all of you.

SURAH AL-A’RAF (Chapter of the Battlements)

64. But they denied him, so We saved him and those with him in the ship; and We drowned those who denied Our tokens. Lo! They were blind folk.

65. And unto (the tribe of) A’ad (We sent) their brother, Hud. He said: O my people! Serve Allah. You have no other Allah save Him. Will you not ward off (evil)?

SURAH SAD (Chapter of Sad)

82. He said: Then, by Your Might, I surely will beguile them everyone,

83. Save Your single-minded slaves among them.

84. He said: The Truth is, and the Truth I speak,

85. That I shall fill hell with you and with such of them as follow you, together.

SURAH AL-BAQARAH (Chapter of the Heifer)

35. And We said: O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in the Garden, and eat you freely (of the fruits) thereof where you will; but come not nigh this tree lest you become wrong-doers.

SURAH TA-HA (Chapter of Ta-Ha)

117. Therefore we said: O Adam! This is an enemy unto you and unto your wife, so let him not drive you both out of the Garden so that you come to toil.

118. It is (vouchsafed) unto you that you hunger not therein nor are naked,

119. And that you thirst not therein nor are exposed to the sun’s heat.

SURAH AL-A’RAF (Chapter of the Battlements)

20. Then Satan whispered to them that he might manifest unto them that which was hidden from them of their shame, and he said: Your Lord forbade you from this tree only lest you should become angels or become of the immortals.

21. And he swore unto them (saying): Lo! I am a sincere adviser unto you.

22. Thus did he lead them on with guile. And when they tasted of the tree their shame was manifest to them and they began to hide (by heaping) on themselves some of the leaves of the Garden. And their Lord called them, (saying): Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you: Lo! Satan is an open enemy to you?

23. They said: Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not and have not mercy on us, surely we are of the lost!

24. He said: Go down (from hence), one of you a foe unto the other. There will be for you on earth a habitation and provision for a while.

25. He said: There shall you live; and there shall you die; and thence shall you be brought forth.

26. O Children of Adam! We have revealed unto you raiment to conceal your shame, and splendid vesture, but the raiment of restraint from evil, that is best. This is of the revelations of Allah that they may remember.

27. O Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you as he caused your (first) parents to go forth from the Garden and tore off from them their robe (of innocence) that he might manifest their shame to them. Lo! He sees you, he and his tribe, from whence you see him not. Lo! We have made the devils protecting friends for those who believe not.

SURAH AL-BAQARAH (Chapter of the Heifer)

37. Then Adam received from his Lord words (of revelation), and He relented toward him. Lo! He is the Relenting, the Merciful.

SURAH AL-MA’IDAH (Chapter of the Repast)

27. But recite unto them with truth the tale of the two sons of Adam, how they offered each a sacrifice, and it was accepted from the one of them and it was not accepted from the other. (The one) said: I will surely kill you. (The other) answered: Allah accepts only from those who ward off (evil).

28. Even if you stretch out your hand against me to kill me, I shall not stretch out my hand against you to kill you, lo! I fear Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

29. Lo! I would rather you should bear the punishment of the sin against me and you own sin and become one of the owners of the fire. That is the reward of evil-doers.

30. But (the other’s) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew him and became one of the losers.

31. Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide his brother’s naked corpse. He said: Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven and so hide my brother’s naked corpse? And he became repentant.

32. For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever kills a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! Many of them became prodigals in the earth.
