Origins and Nature of Man in the Qur’an



 [2:83] remember We took a Covenant from the Children of Israel (to this effect): worship none but God; treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; And practice regular charity. Then did you turn back, except a few among you, and you backslide.
[4:84] Remember We took your Covenant (to this effect): shed no blood amongst you, nor turn out your own people from your homes: and this you solemnly ratified, and to this you can bear witness.
[2:213] Mankind was one single nation, and God sent Messengers with glad tidings and warnings; and with them He sent the Book with the truth, to judge between people in matters wherein they differed; but the People of the Book, after the Clear Signs came to them, did differ among themselves for selfish contumacy. God by His Grace guided the Believers to the Truth, concerning that wherein they differed; for God guides whom He will to a path that is straight.
[2:251] By God's will they routed them: and David slew Goliath; and God gave him power and wisdom and taught him whatever (else) He willed. If God does not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief: but God is full of bounty to all the worlds.
[2:252] These are the Signs of God: We rehearse them to you (the Prophet) in truth: verily you are one of the Messengers.
[3:14] Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet: women and sons; heaped-up hoards of gold and silver; horses branded (for blood and excellence); and (wealth of) cattle and well-tilled land. Such are the possessions of this world's life; but in nearness to God is the best of the goals (to return to).
[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."
[3:97] In it are Signs manifest; (for example), the station of Abraham; whoever enters it attains security; pilgrimage thereto is a duty men owe to God, those who can afford the journey; but if any deny faith, God stands not in need of any of His creatures.
[3:110] You (believers) are the best mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God. If only the People of the Book had faith, it was best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors.
[4:28] God wishes to lighten your burden, for man was created weak.
[4:29] O you who believe, eat not up your property among yourselves in vanities: but let there be amongst you traffic and trade by mutual good-will; nor kill yourselves, for verily God has been to you Most Merciful…
[4:30] If anyone among you do that in rancor and injustice, soon shall We cast them into the fire, and easy it is for God.

[4:58] God commands 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 in charge of your affairs.  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.
[4:105] We have sent down to you the Book in truth, that you might judge between men as guided by God: so be not (used) as an advocate by those who betray their trust;
[4:106] But seek the forgiveness of God; for God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
[4:133] If it were His Will, He could destroy you, O mankind, and create another race; for He has power to do this.
[4:161] That they took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men's substance wrongfully; We have prepared for those among them who reject faith a grievous punishment.
[4:170] O mankind! The Messenger has come to you in truth from God: believe in him; it is best for you. But if you rejected faith, to God belong all things in the heavens and on earth, and God is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
[5:32] On that account, We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone slew a person, unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land, it would be as if he slew the whole people; and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our Messengers with Clear Signs, Yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.
[5:116] behold! God will say: "O Jesus, the son of Mary, did you say unto men, 'Worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God'?" He will say: "Glory to You! Never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, you would indeed have known it. You know what is in my heart, though I know not what is in Yours; for You know in full all that is hidden.
[7:85] To the people of Madyan, We sent Shu`ayb, one of their own brethren, he said: "O my people! Worship God; you have no other god but Him. Now has come unto you a Clear (Sign) from your Lord! Give just measure and weight, nor withhold from the people the things that are their due; and do no mischief on the earth after it has been set in order; that will be best for you, if you have faith.
[8:26] Call to mind when you were small in number, despised through the land, and afraid that men might despoil and kidnap you; but He provided a safe asylum for you, strengthened you with His aid, and gave you good things for sustenance; so that you might be grateful.
[9:34] O you who believe! There are indeed many among the priests and anchorites, who in falsehood devour the substance of men and hinder (them) from the Way of God; there are those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in the Way of God. Announce unto them a most grievous penalty.
[10:19] Mankind was but one nation, but differed (later). Had it not been for a Word that went forth before from your Lord, their differences would have been settled between them.
[10:44] Verily God will not deal unjustly with man in aught; it is man that wrongs his own soul.
[10:99] If it had been your Lord's Will, they would all have believed, all who are on earth. Will you then compel mankind, against their will, to believe?
[10:108] Say: "O you mankind! Now truth has reached you from your Lord. Those who receive Guidance, do so for the good of their own souls; those who stray, do so to their own loss, and I am not (set) over you to arrange your affairs."
[11:85] "And O my people, give just measure and weight, nor withhold from the people the things that are their due; commit no evil in the land with intent to do mischief.
[11:118] If your Lord had so willed, He could have made mankind one People. However, they will not cease to argue.
[13:1] alif lam mim ra. These are the signs (verses, miracles) of the Book: that which has been revealed unto you from you Lord is the Truth; but most men believe not.
[22:5] O mankind! If you have a doubt about the Resurrection, (consider) that We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that We may manifest (Our Power) to you; and We cause whom We will to rest in the wombs for an appointed term, then do We bring you out as babies, then (foster you) that you may reach your age of full strength; and some of you are called to die, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they know nothing after having known (much); you see the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth in pairs.
[22:40] (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of reason (for no cause) except that they say, "Our Lord is God;" had not been for God to check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have destroyed monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of God is commemorated in abundant measure. God will certainly aid those who aid His (cause); for verily God is Full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will).
[23:12] We (God) create Mankind from a quintessence (of clay);
[23:13] Then We make him as (a drop of) sperm in a place of rest (the womb), firmly fixed;
[23:14] Then We make the sperm into a clot (a boneless mass); then of that clot We make a lump of flesh; then We transform that lump into bones and clothed the bones with flesh; thus We develop it into another being; glory be to God, the Best to create.
[23:15] Indeed you are after that going to die.
[23:16] and surely, you will be sent back to life the day of Resurrection.
[26:183] "And withhold not things justly due to men, nor do evil in the land, working mischief.
[35:45] If God was to punish men according to what they deserve, He would not leave on the back of the (earth) a single living creature; but He gives them respite for a stated term; when their term expires, verily God has in His sight all are His servants.
[38:26] O David! We did indeed make you a vicegerent on earth; so you ought to judge between mankind in Truth (and justice); follow not the lusts (of your heart), for they will mislead you from the Path of God; for those who wander astray from the Path of God, is a penalty grievous, for that they forget the Day of Account.
[40:57] assuredly, the creation of the heavens and the earth is a greater (matter) than the creation of mankind: yet most people understand not.
[49:13] O mankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and a female; and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other (not that you may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. God has full Knowledge and is well-acquainted (with all things).
[83:2] those who, when they have to receive by measure, from men, exact full measure,
[83:3] But when they have to give by measure or weight to people, give less than due.
