My Favourite Ayahs

Glory to God Most High, full of Grace and Mercy;

Peace and Blessings be upon His slave Muhammad,
Along with his family and companions

Indeed all the words in the Qur'an are full of greatness, beauty and awe. Below is a collection of some of the ayahs which touch me:

To Allah belong the east and the West: Whithersoever ye turn, there is the presence of Allah. For Allah is all-Pervading, all-Knowing
[Al-Baqarah; 2: 115]

Say: "If the ocean were ink (wherewith to write out) the words of my Lord, sooner would the ocean be exhausted than would the words of my Lord, even if we added another ocean like it, for its aid."
[Al-Kahaf; 18 109]

Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth; a likeness of His light is as a niche in which is a lamp, the lamp is in a glass, (and) the glass is as it were a brightly shining star, lit from a blessed olive-tree, neither eastern nor western, the oil whereof almost gives light though fire touch it not-- light upon light-- Allah guides to His light whom He pleases, and Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah is Cognizant of all things.
[Al-Noor; 24: 35]

And the servants of the Beneficent are they who walk on the earth in humbleness, and when the ignorant address them, they say: Peace.
[Al-Furqan; 25 :63]

Our lord! condemn us not if we forget or fall into err. Our lord! lay not on us a burden like that who thou didst lay on those before us. Our lord! lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear, and grant us forgiveness. have mercy on us. thou art our protection, help us against those who stand against faith
[Al-Baqarah; 2: 286]

Had We sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would certainly have seen it falling down, splitting asunder because of the fear of Allah, and We set forth these parables to men that they may reflect.
[Al-Hashr; 59: 21]

But ah! thou soul at peace! Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure! So enter among My servants, And enter into My garden.
[Al-Fajr; 89: 27-30]

And the soul and Him Who made it perfect, Then He inspired it to understand what is right and wrong for it; He will indeed be successful who purifies it, And he will indeed fail who corrupts it.
[Al-Shams; 91: 7-10]

O man! What has made you careless concerning your Lord, the Most Generous?

Surely We will try you by means of fear, and hunger, and loss of worldly goods, of lives, of produce; but give glad tidings to those who are patient, and, when an affliction befalls them, they say, 'Surely we belong to God, and to Him we shall return.
[al- Baqarah 2: 155-6]

Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, 'I am of those who bow in Islam.'
[41: 33]

O ye who believe! bow down, prostrate yourselves and adore your lord; and do good, that ye may prosper
[22: 77]

Whoever holds fast to God, he has been guided onto the Straight Path.
[Al 'Imran 3: 101]

Is there any Reward for Good - other than Good?
[55: 60]

Verily We have created man in the cradle of suffering. [90: 4]

O man! what has seduced thee from thy Lord Most Beneficient?
[82: 6]

Do ye not see that Allah has subjected to your (use) all things in the heavens and on earth, and has made his bounties flow to you in exceeding measure, (both) seen and unseen? Yet there are among men those who dispute about Allah, without knowledge and without guidance, and without a Book to enlighten them!
[Surah Luqman; 31:20]

With Him are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a record clear (to those who can read).
[Surah Al-An'am; 6:59]

The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practise regular charity, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is Exalted in power, Wise.
[Surah Tauba; 9:71]
