With the Name of The One True *G-D, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer

Those who reject the Messages of The One G-D and the Meeting with HIM (in the Hereafter),- it is they who shall despair of MY Mercy: it is they who will (suffer) a most grievous Penalty.

So, nothing was the answer of (Abraham’s) people except that they said: “Slay him or burn him.”

But G-D did save (Abraham) from the fire. Verily in this are Messages for people who believe.

And (Abraham) said: “For you have (erroneously) taken (for worship) idols besides The One G-D, out of mutual love and regard between yourselves in this life;”

“But on the Day of Judgment you shall disown each other and curse each other: and your dwelling will be the Fire (of Hell), and you shall have none to help.”

But (his nephew) Lot had faith in (Abraham): He said: “I will leave home for the sake of my Guardian-Lord: for HE is Exalted in Might, and Wise.”

And **WE gave (Abraham) Isaac and Jacob, and ordained among his descendants Prophethood and Revelation, and WE granted him his reward in this life; and he is in the Hereafter (among the company) of the Righteous.

And (remember the Prophet) Lot: behold, he said to his people: “You do commit such immoral perversity; such as no people in Creation (ever) committed before you.”

“Do you indeed approach other men (in your lust), and cut off the natural path (of human procreation)? – and practise wickedness (even) in your councils?”

But his people gave no answer but this: they (mockingly) said: “Bring on us the Wrath of G-D, if you are telling the truth.”

He said: “O my Lord-Creator! help me against people who do mischief!”

When **OUR Messengers came to Abraham with the good news (about the birth of Isaac), they (also) said: “We are indeed going to destroy the people of this township (Sodom and Gomorrah): for truly they are (addicted to) crime.”

(Abraham) pleaded: “But (my nephew) Lot lives there.”

They said: “Well do We know who is there : We will certainly save him and his following,- except his wife: she is of those who lag behind!”

And when OUR Messengers came to Lot, he was grieved on their account, and felt himself powerless (to protect) them: but they said: “Fear you not, nor grieve: We are (here) to save you and your following, except your wife: she is of those who lag behind.

“For WE are going to bring down on the people of this township a Punishment from Heaven, because they have been wickedly rebellious.”

And WE have left thereof an evident Message, for any people who (care to) understand.

(Verses from the Holy ***Qur’an)

*G-D instead of god which spelt backwards is dog. This is not a fitting spelling to be used in reference to the Lord-Creator of the Heavens and Earth.

** WE, OUR and US are references in the Holy Qur’an to all of the forces of power (Angels) created by The Creator. They are responsible for the management of all creation. They are totally obedient to The All-Mighty G-D, and obeys HIS Commands without question.

*** The verses of the Holy Qur’an were revealed to Muhammed the son of Abdullah in Arabia in the 7th century.

It was revealed to him over a 23 years time period.

The Revealed Verses came from G-D’s Angel Gabriel.

Muhammed just like the majority of Arabs at that time; could neither read nor write. 

The Revealed Verses were pressed into his heart and mind by Gabriel.

Muhammed then recited the verses to his followers and the majority of them memorised it.

Shortly after Muhammed passed away from this Earth; the Revealed Verses were compiled in the form of a book by his son-in-law Uthman.

Uthman was the third leader of the Muslim community after Muhammed had passed away.

After the Qur’an was completed in the form of a book; Uthman gathered hundreds of the Muslims who had heard and memorised the Revealed Verses as given by Muhammed.

The complete Qur’an was recited to them; and they were asked if the verses were exactly in the same sequence and order as they had heard Prophet Muhammed recite it.

Everyone of them agreed.

Many non Muslims may not be aware that the order of the Qur’anic verses are not as they were Revealed to Muhammed.

For instance the First and Last Revealed verses of the Qur’an are in the middle of the Qur’an.

Not at the beginning nor at the end of the Qur’an.

In fact many of the early Revelations given to Muhammed, are actually at the end of the Qur’an.

Muhammed recited it in the order, as he was instructed to, by the Angel Gabriel.
