Qur’anic Response to Racism Against Muslims

In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful!

T.S.M.

These are verses from the clear Book!

We shall recite in all truth to you some information about Moses and Pharaoh for folk who believe.

Pharaoh had acted haughtily on earth and split his people into factions, seeking to weaken a group of them. He slaughtered their sons and let their women live; he was so depraved! Yet We wanted to endow those who were considered inferior on earth, and make them into leaders and make them [Our] heirs. We established them on earth and showed Pharaoh and Haman as well as their troops how they should beware of them…..

 

 

 

…God has promised to appoint those of you who believe and perform honorable deeds as [His] representatives on earth, just as He made those before them into (such) overlords, and to establish their religion which He has approved for them, and to change their fear into confidence. They serve Me [Alone] and do not associate anything else with me. Those who disbelieve later on will be perverse.

 

Keep up prayer, pay the welfare tax, and obey the Messenger so that you may receive mercy. Do not reckon those who disbelieve can ever frustrate things on earth; their lodging will be the Fire, and how wretched is such a goal!…

 

 

 

…Or did you reckon you will enter the Garden when the same thing never happened to you such as [happened] to those who have passed away before you? Suffering and hardship assailed them, and they were battered about until the Messenger and those who believed along with him said: “When is God’s support [due]?” Is not God’s support near?

 

 

 

…My sons, go and search for Joseph and his brother; do not despair of [finding] God’s comfort; only disbelieving folk despair of God’s comfort.”

 

 

 

We have not sent anyone before you except men from among the townspeople whom We have inspired. Have they not travelled around the earth and seen what the outcome was for those who preceded them? A home in the Hereafter will be better for those who do their duty. Will they not use their reason? – so that once messengers despair and think that they have been lied to, Our support will come to them and anyone We wish to will be saved. Our might is never averted from criminal folk.

There is a lesson in their stories for prudent persons. It is not some report which has been invented but confirmation of what has existed previously and an analysis of everything, as well as guidance and mercy for folk who believe.

 

 

 

…He said: “Who despairs of his Lord’s mercy except those who are lost?”

 

 

 

…Do not fear: He knows what you do not know and grants besides that, a victory nearby. He is the One Who has sent His messenger with guidance and the True Religion so He may have it prevail over all (other) religion. God suffices as a Witness!

 

 

 

…God has written: “I shall prevail, both I Myself and My messengers!” God is Strong, Powerful. You will not find any people who believe in God and the Last Day showing affection for anyone who places limits on God and His messenger, even though they are their own fathers, their sons, their brothers or anyone from their family connection. With those He will engrave faith on their hearts, assist them with a spirit from Himself, and will show them into gardens through which rivers flow, to live there for ever. God will approve of them while they will be pleased with Him. Those are on God’s side. God’s party are those who shall be successful!
