وَوَصَّيۡنَا ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ بِوَٰلِدَيۡهِ حُسۡنٗاۖ وَإِن جَٰهَدَاكَ لِتُشۡرِكَ بِي مَا لَيۡسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلۡمٞ فَلَا تُطِعۡهُمَآۚ إِلَيَّ مَرۡجِعُكُمۡ فَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُونَ

And of the people are some who say, "We believe in AllŒh," but when one [of them] is harmed for [the cause of] AllŒh, he considers the trial [i.e., harm] of the people as [if it were] the punishment of AllŒh. But if victory comes from your Lord, they say, "Indeed, We were with you." Is not AllŒh most knowing of what is within the breasts of the worlds [i.e., all creatures]?


العَنكَبُوتِ Al-ÔAnkab´t 11 الآية :

And those who disbelieve say to those who believe, "Follow our way, and we will carry your sins."[1] But they will not carry anything of their sins. Indeed, they are liars.

1- The phrase may also read: "and let us carry your sins," i.e., the responsibility for your sins.


العَنكَبُوتِ Al-ÔAnkab´t 13 الآية :

وَلَيَحۡمِلُنَّ أَثۡقَالَهُمۡ وَأَثۡقَالٗا مَّعَ أَثۡقَالِهِمۡۖ وَلَيُسۡـَٔلُنَّ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ عَمَّا كَانُواْ يَفۡتَرُونَ

العَنكَبُوتِ Al-ÔAnkab´t 14 الآية :

إِنَّمَا تَعۡبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ أَوۡثَٰنٗا وَتَخۡلُقُونَ إِفۡكًاۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ تَعۡبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ لَا يَمۡلِكُونَ لَكُمۡ رِزۡقٗا فَٱبۡتَغُواْ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرِّزۡقَ وَٱعۡبُدُوهُ وَٱشۡكُرُواْ لَهُۥٓۖ إِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُونَ

You only worship, besides AllŒh, idols, and you produce a falsehood. Indeed, those you worship besides AllŒh do not possess for you [the power of] provision. So seek from AllŒh provision and worship Him and be grateful to Him. To Him you will be returned."


العَنكَبُوتِ Al-ÔAnkab´t 18 الآية :

وَإِن تُكَذِّبُواْ فَقَدۡ كَذَّبَ أُمَمٞ مِّن قَبۡلِكُمۡۖ وَمَا عَلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ إِلَّا ٱلۡبَلَٰغُ ٱلۡمُبِينُ

And if you [people] deny [the message] already nations before you have denied. And there is not upon the Messenger except [the duty of] clear notification.[1]

1- Commentators have differed over this verse whether it is a continuation of the words of Prophet Abraham or words of comfort given by AllŒh to Prophet Muúammad (), which according to context seems more likely.


العَنكَبُوتِ Al-ÔAnkab´t 19 الآية :

أَوَلَمۡ يَرَوۡاْ كَيۡفَ يُبۡدِئُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡخَلۡقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيدُهُۥٓۚ إِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ يَسِيرٞ

And you will not cause failure [to AllŒh] upon the earth or in the heaven. And you have not other than AllŒh any protector or any helper.


العَنكَبُوتِ Al-ÔAnkab´t 23 الآية :

وَٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ بِـَٔايَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ وَلِقَآئِهِۦٓ أُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ يَئِسُواْ مِن رَّحۡمَتِي وَأُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٞ

And the answer of his [i.e., Abraham's] people was not but that they said, "Kill him or burn him," but AllŒh saved him from the fire. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.


العَنكَبُوتِ Al-ÔAnkab´t 25 الآية :

وَقَالَ إِنَّمَا ٱتَّخَذۡتُم مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ أَوۡثَٰنٗا مَّوَدَّةَ بَيۡنِكُمۡ فِي ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَاۖ ثُمَّ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ يَكۡفُرُ بَعۡضُكُم بِبَعۡضٖ وَيَلۡعَنُ بَعۡضُكُم بَعۡضٗا وَمَأۡوَىٰكُمُ ٱلنَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن نَّـٰصِرِينَ

And [Abraham] said, "You have only taken, other than AllŒh, idols as [a bond of] affection among you in worldly life. Then on the Day of Resurrection you will deny one another and curse one another, and your refuge will be the Fire, and you will not have any helpers."
