Divine Calls To All People

The Noble Quran includes divine calls and Messages from the Lord of people to all people regardless of their race or faith. The following is a selection of these universal calls.


O People!

We have created you from a male and a female, and have made you nations and tribes that you may know one another. Verily the most honorable of you in the sight of God is the most pious. Verily God is All-Knower, All-Aware.
Quran, 49:13

And if your Lord had willed, He could have made all people one community; but they still have different beliefs.

Quran, 11:118

O People!

Worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous.
For you, He made the earth spread out and made the sky a structure from which He sent down water to bring forth fruits for your sustenance. So do not attribute to God equals while you know [that no one is equal to Him].

And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a Surah [i.e. chapter] like the ones we revealed to him and call your witnesses if you were honest and true.
But if you do not and you will never be able to, then fear the Fire, whose fuel is people and stones, prepared for the disbelievers.
Quran 2:21-24

O People!

Eat of that which is lawful and good on the earth and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy. He only orders you to do evil and immortality and to say about God what you do not have knowledge
Quran, 2:168-169
And indeed, your Lord is full of bounty for [all] people, but most of them are not thankful.
Quran, 27:73

O People!

Fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many males and females.
Fear Allah [your Lord] whom you demand your mutual rights and do not cut your kinships. Admire the wombs that bore you. Indeed, God has been a watcher over you.

And restore to orphans their wealth when they reach puberty. Do not substitute the defective [of your own] for the good [of theirs].
And do not consume their wealth into your own. Indeed, that is ever a great sin.
Quran, 4:1-2

O People!

Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him. Verily the earthquake of the Hour of Doom is a tremendous thing. The day you see it, every nursing (breast feeding) woman will forget her baby and every pregnant one will lay down her burden and lose her pregnancy.
And, and you will see people as if they were drunk, yet they will not be drunken, but the punishment of God will be severe.

And among people, is one who argues about God without knowledge, and follows every rebellious devil.
For [the devil] it is decreed that whoever takes him as a friend and follows his steps, he will lead him astray and drives him to the torment of the burning Fire.
Quran, 22:1-4

O People!

If you are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, then verily We have created you from dust, then from a drop of seed, then from a clot, then from a little lump of flesh formed and unformed that We show you Our Power.
And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed time, and afterward We bring you forth as infants, then (give you growth) that you attain your full strength.
And among you there is he who dies (young), and among you there is he who is brought to old age the most abject time of life so that, he knows nothing after having known or gained knowledge.

And you see the earth barren (unproductive), but when We send down water thereon, it does thrill and swell and put forth every lovely kind (of growth).
That is because Allah, He is the Truth, and He gives life to the dead, and He is Possessor of power over all things.

And surely the Hour is coming (Day of Judgment), there is no doubt about it; and Allah will raise up (resurrect) those who are in the graves.
And among people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge, and without guidance, and without an illuminating book. Turning away arrogantly to lead people astray from the way of Allah. For him is disgrace in this worldly life, and on the day of Resurrection We shall make him taste the punishment of burning.
Quran, 22:5-9

Corruption has appeared throughout the land and the sea

"Corruption has appeared throughout the land and the sea from what the hands of people have earned. God may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that they will return [to righteousness]. "
Quran, 30:41

O Children of Adam!

Don’t let the Satan deceive you as he deceived your parents [Adam and Eve] and got them out of Paradise, stripping them of their clothes to show them their private parts.
The Satan and his soldiers see you from where you do not see them. Indeed, we made the devils allies and close friends for those who disbelieved in God.
Quran, 7:27

If Allah were to punish people for their wrongdoing, He would not leave, on the [earth], a single living creature, but He defers them for a specified term. And when their term finishes, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it].
Quran, 16:61
If He wills, God can wipe you out, O people, and bring others [in your place]. Surely God is powerful over that.
Quran, 4:133

People were not but one community [united in religion], but then they differed. If not for a word that preceded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them about what they differed.
Quran, 10:19
People were one nation [of one religion] then God sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings and warners.
He sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between people concerning what they differed. And none differed over the Scripture except those who were given it. They differed after the clear proofs came to them out of jealous animosity among themselves.

God guided those who believed in Him to the truth concerning that they had differed. And Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path.
Quran, 2:213

But if you disbelieve, then indeed, to God belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. God is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
Quran 4:170

...O People!

Your injustice is only against yourselves. You have the enjoyment of worldly life; then to Us is your return, and We will inform you of what you used to do.
Quran, 10:23
If God was to hasten for the people the punishment for the evil they do, as He hastens the good for them, then their term would have been ended and they would have been ruined.

But We leave the ones who do not expect the meeting with Us, wandering blindly in their transgression [until a specified appointment].
Quran, 10:11
Verily, God does not wrong the people at all, but the people wrong themselves.
Quran, 10:44
Had your Lord willed, everybody on Earth would have believed, all of them, all together. So, would you compel the people until they become believers?
Quran, 10:99

  • Three Messages from God to You

    O People!

    Keep your duty to your Lord and fear a Day when the parent will not be able to avail aught for his child, nor can the child benefit his parent with anything.
    Verily Allah's promise is the very truth. Let not this worldly life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver [Satan] deceive you, in regard to Allah.

    Verily Allah with Him [Alone] is the knowledge of the Hour [timing for the Day of Judgment]. He sends down the rain, and knows which is in the wombs.
    No person knows what he will earn tomorrow and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower and All-Aware.
    Quran, 31:33-34

    O People!

    There has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord, and We have sent down to you a clear light. So those who believed in God and hold fast to Him, He will admit them to mercy from Himself and bounty. He will guide them to Himself on a straight path.
    Quran 4:174-175

    O People!

    There has come to you instruction from your Lord, it is a healing for what is in the breasts as well as a guidance and a mercy for the believers. Say: “In the bounty of God and His mercy; in that let them rejoice; it is better than the wealth they accumulate."
    Quran, 10:57-58
