Prayers, Mosques and Remembrance of Allah

[2:238] Attend constantly to prayers and to the middle prayer and stand up truly obedient to Allah.

[2:239] But if you are in danger, then (say your prayers) on foot or on horseback; and when you are secure, then remember Allah, as. He has taught you what you did not know.

[4:43] O you who believe! Do not go near prayer when you are Intoxicated until you know (well) what you say, nor when you are under an obligation to perform a bath, unless (you are) travelling on the road, until you have washed yourselves; and if you are sick, or on a journey, or one of you come from the privy or you have touched the women, and you cannot find water, betake yourselves to pure earth, then wipe your faces and your hands; surely Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving.

[4:101] And when you journey in the earth, there is no blame on you if you shorten the prayer, if you fear that those who disbelieve will cause you distress, surely the unbelievers are your open enemy.

[4:102] And when you are among them and keep up the prayer for them, let a party of them stand up with you, and let them take their arms; then when they have prostrated themselves let them go to your rear, and let another party who have not prayed come forward and pray with you, and let them take their precautions and their arms; (for) those who disbelieve desire that you may be careless of your arms and your luggage, so that they may then turn upon you with a sudden united attack, and there is no blame on you, if you are annoyed with rain or if you are sick, that you lay down your arms, and take your precautions; surely Allah has prepared a disgraceful chastisement for the unbelievers.

[4:103] Then when you have finished the prayer, remember Allah standing and sitting and reclining; but when you are secure (from danger) keep up prayer; surely prayer is a timed ordinance for the believers.

[5:6] O you who believe! when you rise up to prayer, wash your faces and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles; and if you are under an obligation to perform a total ablution, then wash (yourselves) and if you are sick or on a journey, or one of you come from the privy, or you have touched the women, and you cannot find water, betake yourselves to pure earth and wipe your faces and your hands therewith, Allah does not desire to put on you any difficulty, but He wishes to purify you and that He may complete His favor on you, so that you may be grateful.

[6:72] And that you should keep up prayer and be careful of (your duty to) Him; and He it is to Whom you shall be gathered.

[7:29] Say: My Lord has enjoined justice, and set upright your faces at every time of prayer and call on Him, being sincere to Him in obedience; as He brought you forth in the beginning, so shall you also return.

[7:31] O children of Adam! Attend to your embellishments at every time of prayer, and eat and drink and be not extravagant; surely He does not love the extravagant.

[7:32] Say: Who has prohibited the embellishment of Allah which He has brought forth for His servants and the good provisions? Say: These are for the believers in the life of this world, purely (theirs) on the resurrection day; thus do We make the communications clear for a people who know.

[7:55] Call on your Lord humbly and secretly; surely He does not love those who exceed the limits.

[7:205] And remember your Lord within yourself humbly and fearing and in a voice not loud in the morning and the evening and be not of the heedless ones.

[7:206] Surely those who are with your Lord are not too proud to serve Him, and they declare His glory and prostrate in humility before Him.

[9:17] The idolaters have no right to visit the mosques of Allah while bearing witness to unbelief against themselves, these it is whose doings are null, and in the fire shall they abide.

[9:18] Only he shall visit the mosques of Allah who believes in Allah and the latter day, and keeps up prayer and pays the poor-rate and fears none but Allah; so (as for) these, it may be that they are of the followers of the right course.

[9:107] And those who built a masjid to cause harm and for unbelief and to cause disunion among the believers and an ambush to him who made war against Allah and His Messenger before; and they will certainly swear: We did not desire aught but good; and Allah bears witness that they are most surely liars.

[9:108] Never stand in it; certainly a masjid founded on piety from the very first day is more deserving that you should stand in it; in it are men who love that they should be purified; and Allah loves those who purify themselves.

[10:12] And when affliction touches a man, he calls on Us, whether lying on his side or sitting or standing; but when We remove his affliction from him, he passes on as though he had never called on Us on account of an affliction that touched him; thus that which they do is made fair-seeming to the extravagant.

[10:22] He it is Who makes you travel by land and sea; until when you are in the ships, and they sail on with them in a pleasant breeze, and they rejoice, a violent wind overtakes them and the billows surge in on them from all sides, and they become certain that they are encompassed about, they pray to Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience: If Thou dost deliver us from this, we will most certainly be of the grateful ones.

[10:23] But when He delivers them, lo! They are unjustly rebellious in the earth. O men! your rebellion is against your own souls, provision (only) of this world's life, then to Us shall be your return, so We will inform you of what you did.

[11:114] And keep up prayer in the two parts of the day and in the first hours of the night; surely good deeds take away evil deeds this is a re- minder to the mindful.

[16:48] Do they not consider everything that Allah has created? Its (very) shadows return from right and left, making obeisance to Allah while they are in utter abasement.

[16:49] And whatever creature that is in the heavens and that is in the earth makes obeisance to Allah (only), and the angels (too) and they do not show pride.

[16:50] They fear their Lord above them and do what they are commanded.

[17:78] Keep up prayer from the declining of the sun till the darkness of the night and the morning recitation; surely the morning recitation is witnessed.

[17:79] And during a part of the night, pray Tahajjud beyond what is incumbent on you; maybe your Lord will raise you to a position of great glory.

[17:110] Say: Call upon Allah or call upon, the Beneficent Allah; whichever you call upon, He has the best names; and do not utter your prayer with a very raised voice nor be silent with regard to it, and seek a way between these.

[17:111] And say: (All) praise is due to Allah, Who has not taken a son and Who has not a partner in the kingdom, and Who has not a helper to save Him from disgrace; and proclaim His greatness magnifying (Him).

[18:28] And withhold yourself with those who call on their Lord morning and evening desiring His goodwill, and let not your eyes pass from them, desiring the beauties of this world's life; and do not follow him whose heart We have made unmindful to Our remembrance, and he follows his low desires and his case is one in which due bounds are exceeded.

[20:130] Bear then patiently what they say, and glorify your Lord by the praising of Him before the rising of the sun and before its setting, and during hours of the night do also glorify (Him) and during parts of the day, that you may be well pleased

[20:131] And do not stretch your eyes after that with which We have provided different classes of them, (of) the splendor of this world's life, that We may thereby try them; and the sustenance (given) by your Lord is better and more abiding.

[20:132] And enjoin prayer on your followers, and steadily adhere to it; We do not ask you for subsistence; We do give you subsistence, and the (good) end is for guarding (against evil).

[22:67] To every nation We appointed acts of devotion which they observe, therefore they should not dispute with you about the matter and call to your Lord; most surely you are on a right way.

[22:68] And if they contend with you, say: Allah best knows what you do.

[22:77] O you who believe! Bow down and prostrate yourselves and serve your Lord, and do good that you may succeed.

[29:45] Recite that which has been revealed to you of the Book and keep up prayer; surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil, and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest, and Allah knows what you do.

[30:17] Therefore glory be to Allah when you enter upon the time of the evening and when you enter upon the time of the morning.

[30:18] And to Him belongs praise in the heavens and the earth, and at nightfall and when you are at midday.

[33:41] O you who believe! Remember Allah, remembering frequently,

[33:42] And glorify Him morning and evening.

[39:9] What! He who is obedient during hours of the night, prostrating himself and standing, takes care of the hereafter and hopes for the mercy of his Lord! Say: Are those who know and those who do not know alike? Only the men of understanding are mindful.

[39:22] What! Is he whose heart Allah has opened for Islam so that he is in a light from his Lord (like the hard-hearted)? Nay, woe to those whose hearts are hard against the remembrance of Allah; those are in clear error.

[40:14] Therefore call upon Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience, though the unbelievers are averse:

[40:55] Therefore be patient; surely the promise of Allah is true; and ask protection for your fault and sing the praise of your Lord in the evening and the morning.

[40:60] And your Lord says: Call upon Me, I will answer you; surely those who are too proud for My service shall soon enter hell abased.

[50:39] Therefore be patient of what they say, and sing the praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before the setting.

[50:40] And glorify Him in the night and after the prayers.

[52:48] And wait patiently for the judgment of your Lord, for surely you are before Our eyes, and sing the praise of your Lord when you rise;

[52:49] And in the night, give Him glory too, and at the setting of the stars.

[53:62] So make obeisance to Allah and serve (Him).

[56:96] Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.

[62:9] O you who believe! When the call is made for prayer on Friday, then hasten to the remembrance of Allah and leave off trading; that is better for you, if you know.

[62:10] But when the prayer is ended, then disperse abroad in the land and seek of Allah's grace, and remember Allah much, that you may be successful.

[63:9] O you who believe! Let not your wealth, or your children, divert you from the remembrance of Allah; and whoever does that, these are the losers.

[72:18] And that the mosques are Allah's, therefore call not upon any one with Allah

[73:20] Surely your Lord knows that you (Muhammad) pass in prayer (Tahajjud) nearly two-thirds of the night, and (sometimes) half of it, and (sometimes) a third of it, and (also) a party of those with you; and Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you are not able to do it, so He has turned to you (mercifully), therefore read what is easy of the Quran. He knows that there must be among you sick, and others who travel in the land seeking of the bounty of Allah, and others who fight in Allah's way, therefore read as much of it as is easy (to you), and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and offer to Allah a goodly gift, and whatever of good you send on beforehand for yourselves, you will find it with Allah; that is best and greatest in reward; and ask forgiveness of Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

[76:24] Therefore wait patiently for the command of your Lord, and obey not from among them a sinner or an ungrateful one.

[76:25] And glorify the name of your Lord morning and evening.

[76:26] And during part of the night adore Him, and give glory to Him (a) long (part of the) night.

[76:27] Surely these love the transitory and neglect a grievous day before them.

[87:14] He indeed shall be successful who purifies himself,

[87:15] And magnifies the name of his Lord and prays.

[96:9] Have you seen him who forbids

[96:10] A servant when he prays?

[96:11] Have you considered if he were on the right way,

[96:12] Or enjoined guarding (against evil)?

[96:13] Have you considered if he gives the lie to the truth and turns (his) back?

[96:14] Does he not know that Allah does see?

[96:15] Nay! If he desist not, We would certainly smite his forehead,

[96:16] A lying, sinful forehead.

[96:17] Then let him summon his council,

[96:18] We too would summon the braves of the army.

[96:19] Nay! Obey him not, and make obeisance and draw nigh (to Allah).

[107:1] Have you considered him who calls the judgment a lie?

[107:2] That is the one who treats the orphan with harshness,

[107:3] And does not urge (others) to feed the poor.

[107:4] So woe to the praying ones,

[107:5] Who are unmindful of their prayers,

[107:6] Who do (good) to be seen,

[107:7] And withhold the necessaries of life.
