[Noor 24:44] Allah alternates the day and the night; indeed in this is a lesson for those who can perceive.
[Noor 24:45] And Allah created every animal on earth, from water; so among them is a kind that moves upon its belly; and among them is a kind that moves upon two legs; and among them a kind that moves upon four legs; Allah creates whatever He wills; indeed Allah is Able to do all things.
[Noor 24:46] And We indeed sent down clear verses; and Allah may guide whomever He wills to the Straight Path.
[Noor 24:47] And they say, "We have accepted faith in Allah and His Noble Messenger, and we obey"; then after that a group among them turns away; and they are not Muslims.
[Noor 24:48] And when called towards Allah and His Noble Messenger in order that the Noble Messenger may judge between them, thereupon a group among them turns away.
[Noor 24:49] And if the judgement is in their favour, they come towards it willingly.
[Noor 24:50] Are their hearts diseased, or do they have doubts, or do they fear that Allah and His Noble Messenger will oppress them? In fact they themselves are the unjust.
[Noor 24:51] The saying of the Muslims when they are called towards Allah and His Noble Messenger in order that the Noble Messenger judge between them is that they submit, "We hear and we obey"; and it is they who have attained the goal.
[Noor 24:52] And whoever obeys the command of Allah and His Noble Messenger, and fears Allah, and practices piety - so it is they who are the successful.
[Noor 24:53] And they swore by Allah most vehemently in
their oaths that if you order them, they will go forth to holy war; say,
"Do not swear; obedience according to the law is required; indeed Allah
knows what you do."
