People of the book – part 17

And give orphans their properties, and do not substitute the bad for the good. And do not consume their properties by combining them with yours, for that would be a serious sin.


Those who consume the wealth of orphans illicitly consume only fire into their bellies; and they will roast in a Blaze.


Worship God, and ascribe no partners to Him, and be good to the parents, and the relatives, and the orphans, and the poor, and the neighbor next door, and the distant neighbor, and the close associate, and the traveler, and your servants. God does not love the arrogant showoff.


O you who were given the Book! Believe in what We sent down, confirming what you have, before We obliterate faces and turn them inside out, or curse them as We cursed the Sabbath-breakers. The command of God is always done.
God does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives anything less than that to whomever He wills. Whoever associates anything with God has devised a monstrous sin.


O you who believe, remember God with frequent remembrance.
And glorify Him morning and evening.
It is He who reaches out to you, and His angels, to bring you out of darkness into the light. And He is Ever-Merciful towards the believers.
Their greeting on the Day they meet Him is, “Peace,” and He has prepared for them a generous reward.


O prophet! We have sent you as a witness, and a bearer of good news, and a warner.
And a caller towards God by His leave, and an illuminating beacon.
And give the believers the good news that for them is a great reward.
And do not obey the blasphemers and the hypocrites, and ignore their insults, and rely on God. God is a sufficient protector.

Some Quranic verses.


Even though Islam teaches respect for women, for parents, kindness toward the needy and the orphan, to be just in our business, to be respectful toward the people of the book, to be tolerant…. It is stigmatised by some people due to their lack of knowledge and hate toward something they don’t understand. Among these people, are those who nourish the hatred in our politician’s mind.
This next part is about a person not known by many but whose influence is still in power

You'll never know what you'll read next. Random lecture is what is all about but one thing is for sure, it's by the same author who wrote The Theory of Fate and Who Went Out of Africa
