QURAN 18: 74 - 76 & 80 - 81

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
[] 18.  THE CAVE  (al kahf) 
[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
With the name of Allah, the Magnanimous, the Merciful.

[] slaughtering a youngster:
74. so they set out,
 until when they encountered a youngster,
 so he slaughtered him;
 he said: 'Did you slaughter a refined soul, without a soul?
  definitely you do a dishonourable thing;'
75. he said: 'Did I not say to you,
  surely you are not capable of patience with me?'
76. he said: 'If I ask you about a thing after it,
  so do not be my companion:
  definitely you reached excuses from my presence;'

&

[] interpretation:
80. 'and as for the youngster:
  so his fathers were believers,
  so we dreaded he would involve them
  with insolence and heathenism:
81. 'so we intended their Lord to change him
  for better than him in alms
  and nearer to magnanimity;

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
With the name of Allah, the Magnanimous, the Merciful.

[] introduction:
65. so they found a servant from Our servants,
 We had given him Mercy from Our presence,
 and knowledge from the knowledge in Our presence;
66. Musaa said to him: 'Do I have to follow you,
  for you to teach me from the righteous knowledge?'
67. he said: 'Surely you are not capable of patience with me;
68. 'and how can you be patient
  with what you cannot encompass with information?'
69  he said: 'You will find me, if Allah wills, patient;
  and I will not disobey you in a command;'
70. he said: 'So if you follow me,
  so do not ask me about a thing,
  until I remind you of the story;'  

[] sinking a ship:
71. so they set out,
 until when they were riding in the ship,
 he perforated it;
 he said: 'Did you perforate it to drown its followers?
  definitely you commanded a weird thing;'
72. he said: 'Did I not say to you,
  you are not capable of patience with me?'
73. he said: 'Do not take me with what I forgot,

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
With the name of Allah, the Magnanimous, the Merciful.

17. 'O my son, stand up to Pray,
  and command with leniency,
 and prohibit against the dishonourable;
  and be patient upon what attacks you;
  surely that is from the resolute command;
18. 'and do not puff up your cheeks to mankind
  and do not walk with brashness in the earth:
  surely Allah does not love all conceited boasters;
19. 'and be modest in your walk, and modulate your voice:
  surely the dishonourable voice is the voice of the donkey.'

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
With the name of Allah, the Magnanimous, the Merciful.

276. Allah divests interest,
 and cultivates charity;
 and Allah does not love all the heathen sinners.
277. Surely those who believe,
 and do pious deeds,
 and stand up to Pray,
 and give alms,
 for them their payment is in the presence of their Lord;
 and no fear upon them,
 and they are not sad;
278. o those of you who believe,
 be conscious of Allah,
 and forfeit what remains from the interest,
 - if you are believers;
279. so if you do not,
 so notification of war from Allah and His Messenger;
