Governance in the Qur’an



[3:79] it is not (possible) that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, and the Prophetic office, should say to people: "Be my worshippers rather than God's": on the contrary (he would say): "Be worshippers of Him Who is truly the Cherisher of all; for you have taught the Book and you have studied it earnestly."
[4:58] God command you to render back your Trusts to those to whom they are due; and when you judge between man and man, that you judge with justice; verily how excellent is the teaching which He gives you! For God is He Who hears and sees all things.
[4:59] O you who believe! Obey God, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If you differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to God and His Messenger, if you do believe in God and the Last Day; that is best, and most suitable for final determination.
[5:43] But why do they come to you for decision, when they have (their own) Law before them? Therein is the (plain) command of God; yet even after that, they would turn away; for they are not (really) people of faith.
[5:44] It was We who revealed the law (to Moses); therein was guidance and light. By its standard the Jews have been judged, by the Prophets who bowed to God's Will, by the Rabbis and the doctors of law; for to them was entrusted the protection of God's Book, and they were witnesses thereto; therefore fear not people, but fear Me, and sell not My Signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what God has revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers.
[5:50] Do they then seek after a judgment of (the Days of) Ignorance? But who, for a people whose faith is assured, can give better judgment than God?
[5:51] O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors; they are but friends and protectors to each other. He amongst you who turns to them (for friendship) is of one them. Verily God guides not a people unjust.
[5:52] those in whose hearts there is a disease, you see how eagerly they run about amongst them, saying: "We do fear lest a change of fortune bring us disaster.” Surely, perhaps God will give (you) victory, or a decision according to His Will. Then will they repent of the thoughts which they secretly harbored in their hearts.
[6:57] Say: "For me, I (work) on a clear Sign from my Lord, but you reject Him. What you would see hastened, is not in my power. Governance authority rests with none but God: He declares the Truth, and He is the best of Governors."
[6:62] Then are people returned unto God; their True Protector surely His is the one with Governance authority, and He is the Swiftest in taking account.
[6:89] these were the men to whom We gave the Book, and authority, and Prophethood: if these (their descendants) reject them, behold! We shall entrust their charge to a new people who reject them not.
[6:114] Say: "Shall I seek for ruler other than God? When He it is Who has sent unto you the Book, explained in detail." They know full well, to whom We have given the Book, that it has been sent down from your Lord in truth. Never be then of those who doubt.
[12:22] When Joseph attained his full manhood, We gave him power and knowledge; thus do We reward those who do right.
[12:67] Further he said: "O my sons! Enter not all from one gate; rather, enter from different gates. Not that I can profit you aught against God (with my advice); none can Governance authority except God’s; on Him do I put my trust; and let all that trust put their trust on Him."
[13:41] don’t they see that We reduced the earth from its polars? (Where) God commands, there is none to reverse His command: and He is Swift in calling to account.
[18:26] Say: "God knows best how long they stayed; with Him is (the knowledge of) the secrets of the heavens and the earth: how clearly He sees, how finely He hears (everything)! They have no protector other than Him; nor does He share His Command with any person whatsoever.
[21:78] remember David and Solomon, when they give judgment in the matter of the field into which the sheep of certain people had strayed by night; We did witness their judgment.
[40:12] (The answer will be) "this is because, when God was invoked as the only (object of worship), you did reject faith, but when partners were joined to Him, you believed. Governance authority is with God, Most High, and Most Great."
[41:16] We did aforetime grant to the Children of Israel the Book, governance authority, and Prophethood; We gave them, for sustenance, things good and pure; and We favored them above all other nations.
