(246) O' mankind! Fear your Lord Who created you from a single person, created, out of it, its mate, and from them twain scattered countless men and women;- Fear Allah through Whom you demand your mutual [rights] and be heedful of the wombs: for Allah ever watches over you. [Surat 'An-Nisã (#4) V. 1]

(247) O' you who believe! fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam. [Surat 'Ale-`Imrãn (#3) V. 102]

(248) O' you who believe!fear Allah, and make your utterance straight forward. That He make your conduct whole and sound,and forgive you your sins: He that obeys Allah and his Messenger, has attained a great victory. [Surat 'Al-Ahzãb (#33) V. 70, 71]
