PEOPLE will ask thee about the Last Hour.
Say: “Knowledge thereof rests with God alone; yet for all thou knowest, the Last Hour may well be near!”
Verily, God has rejected the deniers of the truth, and has readied for them a blazing fire
therein to abide beyond the count of time: no protector will they find, and none to bring them succour
On the Day when their faces shall be tossed about in the fire, they will exclaim, “Oh, would that we had paid heed unto God, and paid heed unto the Apostle!”
And they will say: “O our Sustainer! Behold, we paid heed unto our leaders and our great men, and it is they who have led us astray from the right path
O our Sustainer! Give them double suffering, and banish them utterly from Thy grace!”
O YOU who have attained to faith! Be not like those [children of Israel] who gave offence to Moses, and [remember that] God showed him to be innocent of whatever they alleged [against him or demanded of him]: for of great honour was he in the sight of God
O you who have attained to faith! Remain conscious of God, and [always] speak with a will to bring out [only] what is just and true
[whereupon] He will cause your deeds to be virtuous, and will forgive you your sins. And [know that] whoever pays heed unto God and His Apostle has already attained to a mighty triumph
33:63-71

Indeed, they who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord

And they who believe in the signs of their Lord

And they who do not associate anything with their Lord

And they who give what they give while their hearts are fearful because they will be returning to their Lord -

It is those who hasten to good deeds, and they outstrip [others] therein.

And We charge no soul except [with that within] its capacity, and with Us is a record which speaks with truth; and they will not be wronged.

23:57-62

  • “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad SAW) making (things) clear unto you, after a break in (the series of) Messengers, lest you say: “There came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner.” But now has come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner. And Allah is Able to do all things. (Quran, Surah Al-Maida:19)”

  • “(He Alone) the All-Knower of the Ghaib (unseen), and He reveals to none His Ghaib (unseen).”
  • Except to a Messenger (from mankind) whom He has chosen (He informs him of unseen as much as He likes), and then He makes a band of watching guards (angels) to march before him and behind him. Quran (Surah Al-Jinn :27)”

Gotta love how Satan's only sin in the second chapter of the Quran was not bowing and worshipping Adam
34. And We said to the angels, “Bow down to Adam.” They bowed down, except for Satan. He refused, was arrogant, and was one of the disbelievers.

You missed the plot.
Satan's sin was arrogance and not following a command of Allah.

“And surely, We created you (your father Adam) and then gave you shape (the noble shape of a human being); then We told the angels, ‘Prostrate yourselves to Adam’, and they prostrated themselves, except Iblees (Satan), he refused to be of those who prostrated themselves.

(Allaah) said: ‘What prevented you (O Iblees) that you did not prostrate yourself, when I commanded you?’ Iblees said: ‘I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay’”


[al-A’raaf 7:11-12]

The party of Satan follow him in this characteristic they think they are better than us and dissuade people from following the guidance of the Creator.
Arrogance is key feature of Iblis (shaitan) and his cohorts in this world.
Arrogance leads people to reject the truth and look down on people.

May the Creator open your heart so you can know Him, and seek nearness to Him. Ameen!
It is a forbidden sentiment in Islam.

“Surely, Shaitan (Satan) is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire” (Surah Faatir 35:6).

“And if an evil whisper from Shaitan (waswasa) tries to turn you away (O Muhammad) (from doing good), then seek refuge in Allah. Verily, He is the All Hearer, the All Knower” (Quran, Surah Fussilat: 36).

“Verily, he and Qabiluhu (his soldiers from the jinn or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them”
(Quran, Surah Al-Aaraf: 27).
“And Shaitan (Satan) will say when the matter has been decided: ‘Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, and you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Satan) as a partner with Allah (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers)’” (Quran, Surah Ibrahim: 22).

“(Iblis (Satan)) said: ‘By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all. Except Your chosen slaves amongst them (i.e. faithful, obedient, true believers of Islamic Monotheism).’” (Quran, Surah Saad: 82-83).

“Certainly, you shall have no authority over My slaves, except those who follow you of the Ghawun (Mushrikun and those who go astray, criminals, polytheists, and evil-doers)” (Quran, Surah Al-Hijr: 42).

So Satan sinned by not worshipping Adam? Funny in Mormonism Adam was considered god.

Context for the wrongly numbered Quranic quote above
These are the verses about guidance in regards to divorce.
Women who divorce have to wait 3 monthly cycles before they remarry and if they are pregnant they have to wait till they deliver their child before they remarry.

65:1
O Prophet, when you [Muslims] divorce women, divorce them for [the commencement of] their waiting period and keep count of the waiting period, and fear Allah , your Lord. Do not turn them out of their [husbands'] houses, nor should they [themselves] leave [during that period] unless they are committing a clear immorality. And those are the limits [set by] Allah . And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah has certainly wronged himself. You know not; perhaps Allah will bring about after that a [different] matter.
65:2
And when they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or part with them according to acceptable terms. And bring to witness two just men from among you and establish the testimony for [the acceptance of] Allah . That is instructed to whoever should believe in Allah and the Last day. And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him a way out
65:3
And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.
65:4
And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women - if you doubt, then their period is three months, and [also for] those who have not menstruated. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him of his matter ease.
65:5
That is the command of Allah , which He has sent down to you; and whoever fears Allah - He will remove for him his misdeeds and make great for him his reward.
65:6
Lodge them [in a section] of where you dwell out of your means and do not harm them in order to oppress them. And if they should be pregnant, then spend on them until they give birth. And if they breastfeed for you, then give them their payment and confer among yourselves in the acceptable way; but if you are in discord, then there may breastfeed for the father another woman.
65:1-6

Yes woman who divorce should wait three cyclic months, that's not the problem. The problem is it mentions little girls before their "flowering" so to speak. Why would it mention them in context of divorce and marrige? Hmmmm.

Say: "If your fathers and your sons and your brothers and your spouses and your clan, and the worldly goods which you have acquired,
and the commerce whereof you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you take pleasure -
[if all these] are dearer to you than God and His Apostle and the struggle in His cause, then wait until God makes manifest His will;
and [know that] God does not grace iniquitous folk with His guidance."
