O you who believe! You are in charge of your selves. Whoever errs cannot injure you if you are rightly guided. Unto Allah you will all return; and then He will tell you about what you used to do. Al-Maida (5):105

Surely Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their wealth, because the Garden will be theirs. They will fight in the way of Allah, and they will kill and be killed. This is the true promise made by Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And who is more true to his promise than Allah? Rejoice then in the bargain that you have made; for that is the supreme triumph. At-Taubah (9):111

O You who believe! What ails you when it is said to you"Go forth in the way of Allah" that you are bowed down to the ground with heaviness? Do you desire the life of the world rather than the hereafter? The comfort of the life of the world is but little in the Hereafter. At-Taubah (9):38 O man! What has made you careless concerning your Lord, the Bountiful? Al-Infitar (82):6.


UHUD: A mountain just outside Madina, much loved by the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, at the foot of which Muslims fought their second major battle against the pagan Qur’aish of Makka in 3AH. The Qur’aish army of 3,000 men, under the leadership of Abu sufyan, attacked the Muslim army about 700-1000 men. The battle went well at first, some fifty archers disobeyed the Prophet Muhammad and left their posts, leaving the Muslims open to an attack from their rear; and secondly, there was treachery on the part of some 300 Munafiqeen (hypocrites) led by ‘Abdallah ibn Ubai, who deserted the Muslims during the battle. Many great companions, and in particular the uncle of the Prophet, Hamza, ‘the lion of Allah’, were killed in this battle. See Bani Nadheer. See Holy Qur’an, Aali ‘Imran (3):121-128, 140-180.

This term is used in the Qur’an to describe the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, who could neither read nor write and who never received any formal education. To the unbeliever here is food for thought: how could and illiterate man have brought such a completely perferct book (the Holy Qur’an), perfect in its meaning, message, grammar and overall content, if it were not with divine help? No other book exists on earth that has such perfect content and structure. A challenge to all unbeleivers! Mankind and Jinn? Assemble together and try to produce just one Surah (chapter) like it. You will never be able to do it, even if you were to try until the Day of Ressurrection you will not succeed!
