In Surah Al ‘Anbya’ Allah says

21:1[The time of] their account has approached for the people, while they are in heedlessness turning away. 21:2No mention comes to them anew from their Lord except that they listen to it while they are at play 21:8And We did not make the prophets forms not eating food, nor were they immortal [on earth]. 21:9Then We fulfilled for them the promise, and We saved them and whom We willed and destroyed the transgressors. 21:10We have certainly sent down to you a Book in which is your mention. Then will you not reason? 21:11And how many a city which was unjust have We shattered and produced after it another people 21:12And when its inhabitants perceived Our punishment, at once they fled from it. 21:13[Some angels said], “Do not flee but return to where you were given luxury and to your homes – perhaps you will be questioned.” 21:14They said, “O woe to us! Indeed, we were wrongdoers.” 21:15And that declaration of theirs did not cease until We made them [as] a harvest [mowed down], extinguished [like a fire]. 21:16And We did not create the heaven and earth and that between them in play. 21:17Had We intended to take a diversion, We could have taken it from [what is] with Us – if [indeed] We were to do so. 21:18Rather, We dash the truth upon falsehood, and it destroys it, and thereupon it departs. And for you is destruction from that which you describe. 21:19To Him belongs whoever is in the heavens and the earth. And those near Him are not prevented by arrogance from His worship, nor do they tire.

On death Allah says

21:35Every soul will taste death. And We test you with evil and with good as trial; and to Us you will be returned. 21:45Say, “I only warn you by revelation.” But the deaf do not hear the call when they are warned.

About Quran Allah again says

21:106Indeed, in this [Qur’an] is notification for a worshipping people 21:107And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds. 21:108Say, “It is only revealed to me that your god is but one God; so will you be Muslims [in submission to Him]?” 21:109But if they turn away, then say, “I have announced to [all of] you equally. And I know not whether near or far is that which you are promised. 22:16And thus have We sent the Qur’an down as verses of clear evidence and because Allah guides whom He intends.22:17Indeed, those who have believed and those who were Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associated with Allah – Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed Allah is, over all things, Witness.

In Surah Al-Haj aboutMasjid al-Haram and performance of Haj Allah says

22:25Indeed, those who have disbelieved and avert [people] from the way of Allah and [from] al-Masjid al-Haram, which We made for the people – equal are the resident therein and one from outside; and [also] whoever intends [a deed] therein of deviation [in religion] or wrongdoing – We will make him taste of a painful punishment.22:26And [mention, O Muhammad], when We designated for Abraham the site of the House, [saying], “Do not associate anything with Me and purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who stand [in prayer] and those who bow and prostrate.22:27And proclaim to the people the Hajj [pilgrimage]; they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every distant pass -22:28That they may witness benefits for themselves and mention the name of Allah on known days over what He has provided for them of [sacrificial] animals. So eat of them and feed the miserable and poor.22:29Then let them end their untidiness and fulfill their vows and perform Tawaf around the ancient House.”22:30That [has been commanded], and whoever honors the sacred ordinances of Allah – it is best for him in the sight of his Lord. And permitted to you are the grazing livestock, except what is recited to you. So avoid the uncleanliness of idols and avoid false statement,22:31Inclining [only] to Allah , not associating [anything] with Him. And he who associates with Allah – it is as though he had fallen from the sky and was snatched by the birds or the wind carried him down into a remote place.22:32That [is so]. And whoever honors the symbols of Allah – indeed, it is from the piety of hearts.22:33For you the animals marked for sacrifice are benefits for a specified term; then their place of sacrifice is at the ancient House.22:36And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah ; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful.22:37Their meat will not reach Allah , nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good.22:40[They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right – only because they say, “Our Lord is Allah .” And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned. And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.

On denial of prophet hood of Hazrat Muhammad (PBU) Allah says

22:42And if they deny you, [O Muhammad] – so, before them, did the people of Noah and ‘Aad and Thamud deny [their prophets],22:43And the people of Abraham and the people of Lot22:44And the inhabitants of Madyan. And Moses was denied, so I prolonged enjoyment for the disbelievers; then I seized them, and how [terrible] was My reproach.22:45And how many a city did We destroy while it was committing wrong – so it is [now] fallen into ruin – and [how many] an abandoned well and [how many] a lofty palace.22:52And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But Allah abolishes that which Satan throws in; then Allah makes precise His verses. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.

For setting rites for every religion Allah says

22:67For every religion We have appointed rites which they perform. So, [O Muhammad], let the disbelievers not contend with you over the matter but invite them to your Lord. Indeed, you are upon straight guidance.22:68And if they dispute with you, then say, ” Allah is most knowing of what you do.

In SurahAl Mu’minun Saying prayer with humbleness and for other functions Allah says

23:1Certainly will the believers have succeeded 23:2They who are during their prayer humbly submissive 23:3And they who turn away from ill speech 23:4And they who are observant of zakah23:5And they who guard their private parts 23:6Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed – 23:7But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors – 23:8And they who are to their trusts and their promises attentive23:9And they who carefully maintain their prayers – 23:10 Those are the inheritors 23:11Who will inherit al-Firdaus. They will abide therein eternally.

About creating universe Allah again says

23:17And We have created above you seven layered heavens, and never have We been of [Our] creation unaware. 23:18And We have sent down rain from the sky in a measured amount and settled it in the earth. And indeed, We are Able to take it away 23:19And We brought forth for you thereby gardens of palm trees and grapevines in which for you are abundant fruits and from which you eat. 23:20And [We brought forth] a tree issuing from Mount Sinai which produces oil and food for those who eat 23:21And indeed, for you in livestock is a lesson. We give you drink from that which is in their bellies, and for you in them are numerous benefits, and from them you eat. 23:22And upon them and on ships you are carried. 23:23And We had certainly sent Noah to his people, and he said, “O my people, worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him; then will you not fear Him?”

For sending Messengers Allah says

23:44Then We sent Our messengers in succession. Every time there came to a nation its messenger, they denied him, so We made them follow one another [to destruction], and We made them narrations. So away with a people who do not believe.23:45Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a clear authority23:46To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were arrogant and were a haughty people 23:47They said, “Should we believe two men like ourselves while their people are for us in servitude?”23:48So they denied them and were of those destroyed 23:49And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture that perhaps they would be guided.23:50And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign and sheltered them within a high ground having level [areas] and flowing water.23:51[ Allah said], “O messengers, eat from the good foods and work righteousness. Indeed, I, of what you do, am Knowing. 23:52And indeed this, your religion, is one religion, and I am your Lord, so fear Me.”

On dividing religions in to sects Allah says

23:53 But the people divided their religion among them into sects – each faction, in what it has, rejoicing.23:54So leave them in their confusion for a time.23:101So when the Horn is blown, no relationship will there be among them that Day, nor will they ask about one another.

In Surah An-Nur Allah says

24:1[This is] a surah which We have sent down and made [that within it] obligatory and revealed therein verses of clear evidence that you might remember.24:2The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse – lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah , if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.24:3The fornicator does not marry except a [female] fornicator or polytheist, and none marries her except a fornicator or a polytheist, and that has been made unlawful to the believers. 24:4And those who accuse chaste women and then do not produce four witnesses – lash them with eighty lashes and do not accept from them testimony ever after. And those are the defiantly disobedient, 24:5Except for those who repent thereafter and reform, for indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. 24:6And those who accuse their wives [of adultery] and have no witnesses except themselves – then the witness of one of them [shall be] four testimonies [swearing] by Allah that indeed, he is of the truthful. 24:7And the fifth [oath will be] that the curse of Allah be upon him if he should be among the liars.24:8But it will prevent punishment from her if she gives four testimonies [swearing] by Allah that indeed, he is of the liars. 24:9And the fifth [oath will be] that the wrath of Allah be upon her if he was of the truthful. 24:10

And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy… and because Allah is Accepting of repentance and Wise.24:12Why, when you heard it, did not the believing men and believing women think good of one another and say, “This is an obvious falsehood”?24:13Why did they [who slandered] not produce for it four witnesses? And when they do not produce the witnesses, then it is they, in the sight of Allah , who are the liars.24:14And if it had not been for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy in this world and the Hereafter, you would have been touched for that [lie] in which you were involved by a great .24:19Indeed, those who like that immorality should be spread [or publicized] among those who have believed will have a painful punishment in this world and the Hereafter. And Allah knows and you do not know.

About giving aid to relatives and needy people Allah says

24:22And let not those of virtue among you and wealth swear not to give [aid] to their relatives and the needy and the emigrants for the cause of Allah , and let them pardon and overlook. Would you not like that Allah should forgive you? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. 24:23Indeed, those who [falsely] accuse chaste, unaware and believing women are cursed in this world and the Hereafter; and they will have a great punishment

About pardah Allah says

24:31And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their head covers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.

About marriage Allah says

24:32And marry the unmarried among you and the righteous among your male slaves and female slaves. If they should be poor, Allah will enrich them from His bounty, and Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing. 24:33But let them who find not [the means for] marriage abstain [from sexual relations] until Allah enriches them from His bounty. And those who seek a contract [for eventual emancipation] from among whom your right hands possess – then make a contract with them if you know there is within them goodness and give them from the wealth of Allah which He has given you. And do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, if they desire chastity, to seek [thereby] the temporary interests of worldly life. And if someone should compel them, then indeed, Allah is [to them], after their compulsion, Forgiving and Merciful.

About weather and day and night Allah says

24:43Do you not see that Allah drives clouds? Then He brings them together, then He makes them into a mass, and you see the rain emerge from within it. And He sends down from the sky, mountains [of clouds] within which is hail, and He strikes with it whom He wills and averts it from whom He wills. The flash of its lightening almost takes away the eyesight 24:44Allah alternates the night and the day. Indeed in that is a lesson for those who have vision.

Here Allah again stresses for prayer and zakah

24:56And establish prayer and give zakah and obey the Messenger – that you may receive mercy.

For bringing discipline among houses Allah says

24:61There is not upon the blind [any] constraint nor upon the lame constraint nor upon the ill constraint nor upon yourselves when you eat from your [own] houses or the houses of your fathers or the houses of your mothers or the houses of your brothers or the houses of your sisters or the houses of your father’s brothers or the houses of your father’s sisters or the houses of your mother’s brothers or the houses of your mother’s sisters or [from houses] whose keys you possess or [from the house] of your friend. There is no blame upon you whether you eat together or separately. But when you enter houses, give greetings of peace upon each other – a greeting from Allah , blessed and good. Thus does Allah make clear to you the verses [of ordinance] that you may understand.

In Surah Al Furqan Allah says

25:30And the Messenger has said, “O my Lord, indeed my people have taken this Qur’an as [a thing] abandoned.”25:35And We had certainly given Moses the Scripture and appointed with him his brother Aaron as an assistant. 25:36And We said, “Go both of you to the people who have denied Our signs.” Then We destroyed them with [complete] destruction. 25:37And the people of Noah – when they denied the messengers, We drowned them, and We made them for mankind a sign. And We have prepared for the wrongdoers a painful punishment. 25:38And [We destroyed] ‘Aad and Thamud and the companions of the well and many generations between them.25:39And for each We presented examples [as warnings], and each We destroyed with [total] destruction. 25:47And it is He who has made the night for you as clothing and sleep [a means for] rest and has made the day a resurrection.25:48And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy, and We send down from the sky pure water25:49That We may bring to life thereby a dead land and give it as drink to those We created of numerous livestock and men.25:63And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace,
