So when you recite the Quran, seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan,

Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, "We believe", and that they will not be tested?

[ definition of Straight Path ] "Did I not enjoin on you, O ye Children of Adam, that ye should not worship Satan; for that he was to you an enemy avowed?-   "And that ye should worship Me, (for that) this was the Straight Way?

Say, "The truth is from your Lord": Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it): for the wrong-doers We have prepared a Fire whose (smoke and flames), like the walls and roof of a tent, will hem them in: if they implore relief they will be granted water like melted brass, that will scald their faces, how dreadful the drink! How uncomfortable a couch to recline on!

[ every single word is significant in one's lifetime ] And his Companion will say: "Here is (his Record) ready with me!"

THEME: Satan
Say "NO" just as strongly/hotly as saying "YES" to Allah
