the great friendship | meditative quranic verses

The believers, both men and women, are friends, helpers, supporters (auliya) to each other; they enjoin what is right (al-ma'ruf) and forbid what is wrong (al-munkar), they establish prayer and give the obligatory poor-dues (zakat) and obey God and His Messenger. On them God will have mercy.

Indeed Allah is the exalted source of ever flowing wisdom (inna Allaha azizun hakim).

God has promised the believers, both men and women, Gardens through which rivers flow, wherein they shall abide eternally, and beautiful dwelling in the Gardens of Paradise.

The blessed acceptance of Allah is even greater (wa ridwanum minAllahi akbar). That is the success supreme!

- The Quran, 9:71-72
