    O you who believe ! If you keep your duty to Allah, He will give you discrimination (between right and wrong) and will rid you of your evil thoughts and deeds, and will forgive you. Allah is of Infinite Bounty. Al-Anfaal (8):29.

    O Mankind! Fear your Lord. Surely the earthquake of the Hour (of Doom) is a trememdous thing. On the day when you behold it, every nursing mother will forget her nursing and every pregnant one will be delivered of her burden, and and you will see mankind as if they were drunk, yet they will not be drunk, but the Doom of Allah will be strong (upon them). Al-Hajj (22):1-2.

    Every self shall taste death. And surely you will be paid on the Day of Resurrection only what you have earned. Whoever is removed from the Fire and is made to enter Paradise is indeed successful. The life of this world is only an illusory comfort. Aali ‘Imran (3):185.

    You will not attain righteousness until you give of that which you love. Aali ‘Imran 30:92.
