34: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High Exalted, Great.”

47: “O ye unto whom the Scripture hath been given! Believe in what We have revealed confirming that which ye posses, before We destroy countenances so as to confound them, or curse them as We cursed the Sabbathbreakers (of old time). The commandment of Allah is always executed.”

He whom Allah sendeth astray, for him thou ( O Muhammad) canst find road. 89: They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve, that ye may be upon a level (with them). So choose not friends from them until they forsake their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them, and choose no friend or helper from among them.”

Allah is severe in punishment.” 14: “That (is the award), so taste it, and (know) that for disbelievers is the torment of the fire.”

Then let him see whether his strategy dispelleth that whereat he rageth!”

Surah 24 – AN-NUR (Light):

31: “And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands’ fathers or their sons or their husbands’ sons, or their brothers or their brothers’ sons or sisters’ sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigor, or children who know naught of women’s nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornments. And turn to Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed.”

Surah 33 – AL-AHZAB (The Clans):

23: “Of the believers are men who are true to that which they covenanted with Allah. Some of them have paid their vow by death (in battle), and some of them still are waiting; and they have not altered in the least;”

50: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand posseseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war, and the daughters of thine uncle on the father’s side, and the daughters of thine uncle on the mother’s side and the daughters of thine aunts on the mother’s side who emigrated with thee, and a believing woman if she give herself unto the Prophet and the Prophet desire to ask her in marriage – a privilege for thee only, not for the (rest of) believers – We are Aware of that which we enjoined upon them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands posses – that thou mayest be free from blame, for Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.”

60: “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while.” 61: “Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.” 62: “That was the way of Allah in the case of those who passed away of old; thou wilt not find for the way of Allah aught of power to change.”

Surah 47 – MUHAMMAD (Muhammad):

3: “That is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood and because those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus Allah coineth their similitudes for mankind.” 4: “Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain.” 5: “He will guide them and improve their state,” 6: “And bring them in unto the Garden which He hath made known unto them.”
