God willing, those who follow these commands would not commit the atrocities we see around us today. Sadly religion—particularly Islam as portrayed today—has such a bad name, that many consider it unintelligent to be religious. This could not be further from the truth. The reality is that true intelligence lies in worshipping God and taking heed of the guidance He gives us (2:269, 3:190-194, 5:100, 14:52, 38:29).

This is a proclamation for the people, to be warned herewith, and to let them know that He is only one god, and for those who possess intelligence to take heed. [14:52]

This is a scripture that we sent down to you, that is sacred - perhaps they reflect on its verses. Those who possess intelligence will take heed. [38:29]

O people, enlightenment has come to you herein from your Lord, and healing for anything that troubles your hearts, and guidance, and mercy for the believers. [10:57]


Ramadan is the month during which the Quran was revealed, providing guidance for the people, clear teachings, and the statute book…. [2:185]

In summary, it is easy to be misguided by Satan and his forces and turn into the lowliest of the lowly. And while there is no compulsion in religion, God has made good and evil clearly distinct (2:256). Believing in God and leading a righteous life in accordance with His teachings in the scripture admits us into God’s mercy and gives us the blessing of the strongest bond (31:22). The choice is ours to make.

There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient. [2:256]

Those who submit completely to GOD, while leading a righteous life, have gotten hold of the strongest bond. For GOD is in full control of all things. [31:22]

Thank you God.
