Whatever Allah has given you of lawful and wholesome foods, eat it and be grateful of the bounties of Allah, if indeed you worship Him.

He who is driven to helplessness (by starvation) and is not desiring pleasure nor is he a transgressor, then verily, Allah Is the Forgiving, the Most Merciful.
And, do not say for the falsities of your tongues: `This is permissible and this is unlawful.' In so saying, you are inventing falsehood on Allah.

(Suddenly) his wealth was surrounded (by disaster). He thus became disillusioned and (shock-stricken) wringing his hands over what he had spent in (developing) the orchards which now lay sprawled out in destruction. He then cried out: `Alas! Would that I did not associate any with my Creator.'

Did they travel in the land and thereby gain hearts by means of which they could understand; or ears by means of which they could hear`. In reality, eyes do not become blind; but the hearts in the breasts become blind.

"Mischief and corruption have appeared on the earth and on the ocean because of the (evil) deeds which the hands of people have committed, so that Allah may give them a taste of some of their deeds, for perhaps they may return (to righteousness).

7l. "Those among the Ahle Kitaab who aided them (the mushrikeen) Allah drove them from the heights of their fortresses and instilled fear into their hearts.

(This) was the Way of Allah regarding those who existed before. Never will you find the Way of Allah changing. " (Aayat 61-62, Surah Ahzaab)
73. "For the people of Saba were signs in their homeland. There were two (rows) of orchards on the right and the left. (We ordered them). 'Eat of the sustenance of your Rabb and be grateful unto Him.' (It was) a city of great prosperity, and (Allah) a Creator Most Forgiving, till they turned away (from the Path of Allah). We opened up the gates of flood on them and We replaced their double rows of orchards with another two orchards: (orchards) of bitter fruit, cactus and a bit of brambles. " (Aayat 7, Surah Saba)
74. "When a Warner (i.e. a Nabi) came to them, it only increased theer detestation (for the Truth) because they desired pride on earth and they further plotted evil. The evil conspiracy befell none but those who plotted. What! Do they then await the fate which overtook former (unbelievers)? Never will you find a change in the Way of Allah. Never will you find for the Way of Allah a diversion.
What! Have they not travelled in the land and seen the end of those before them. They were more powerful than them. There is nothing in the heavens and the earth which can render Allah helpless. Verily, He is the One of Knowledge and the Powerful.
If Allah had to apprehend people because of their (evil) deeds then He would not have left on the surface of the earth a single living thing. In fact, Allah has granted them an appointed time.

Verily, this worldly life is only play and amusement, if you believe and fear, Allah will grant you your reward and He will not ask you for your wealth. If He had to (continuously ask you for your wealth, i.e. to spend in the Path of Allah), then you will become miserly and He will then reveal your dislike (for spending in His Path), Yes! You are those who are being called upon to spend in the Path of Allah. From among you are those who are stingy. Verily, whoever is miserly, is in fact miserly upon his own soul. Allah is Wealthy and you are paupers. If you turn your backs (on Allah 's Path) then Allah will replace you with another nation which will then not be like you. " (Aayat Surah Muhammad)
84. "Verily, Allah is pleased with those Believers when they took the oath of allegiance to you (Muhammad) under the tree. Allah knew that (sincerity) which was in their hearts. He therefore cast peace over them and granted them a victory close at hand, and spoils of war; in abundance which they took. Indeed, Allah is the Majestic, the Wise
Allah has promised you spoils of war in abundance, which you will take. Thus Allah hastened it for you and He prevented the hands of people (the kuffaar) from (harming) you. (This is so) that it may be a sign for the Believers and so that Allah guide you onto a Straight Road.
And another (victory too) which you have not yet attained. Verily Allah has encircled it. Allah is Most Powerful over everything (Aayat 121, Surah Fatah)

If Allah did not decree for them exile, He would have punished them (by execution) here on earth. And, for them in the Aakhirah is the punishment of the Fire. This is because they opposed Allah and His Rasool. Whoever opposes Allah (should know that) verily, Allah is severe in punishment. "(Aayat 4, Surah Hashr)

They say to their kaafir brethren of the Ahle Kitaab: 'If you are expelled, we will accompany you and in regard to you, we will not accept what others say. If war is made against you, we will aid you.' But, Allah is a Witness that, verily, they are liars. If they (the unbelievers among the Ahle Kitaab) are expelled, these (munafiqeen) will not accompany them; if war is made against them (Able Kitaab), they (munafiqeen) will not assist them. And, should they aid them, they (munafiqeen) will turn tail and flee. Thus they will not be aided. Most certainly, in their hearts they fear you more than even Allah. That is because they are a people who do not understand. (Aayat 14, Surah Hashr)

You have full authority to refuse (them).

A decent one among them said: 'What! Did l not tell you: Why do you not glorify Allah (recite Tasbeeh)'. They all then (spontaneously exclaimed: 'Glory to our Rabb. 'verily, we were transgressors.'

These are the 100 Qur'aanic verses on which the subject matter of this book is based. Some of the aayaat prove that comfort, success and prosperity are for the pious servants of Allah while some verses prove that misfortune, calamity and adversity are the lots of transgressors. For the sake of brevity only these verses have been cited. Besides these there are numerous other Qur'aanic verses to prove the claims made in this book. It is now incumbent upon Muslims to confine the success and prosperity of both worlds to following the Deen.
