3“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust
in your brother's eye and pay no attention
to the plank in your own eye?
4How can you say to your brother,
‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’
when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?
5You hypocrite, first take the plank out
of your own eye, and then you will
see clearly to remove the speck
from your brother's eye.
[61:2] O you who believe, why do
you say what you do not do?
[61:3] Most abominable in the sight of GOD
is that you say what you do not do.
3“Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed.
4As he was scattering the seed, some fell along
the path, and the birds came and ate it up.
5Some fell on rocky places, where it did not
have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the
soil was shallow.
6But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched,
and they withered because they had no root. 7Other
seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the
plants, so that they did not bear grain. 8Still other seed fell
on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop,
multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times.”
[48:29] Muhammad - the messenger of GOD - and those with him are harsh and stern against the disbelievers, but kind and compassionate amongst themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating, as they seek GOD's blessings and approval. Their marks are on their faces, because of prostrating. This is the same example as in the Torah.
Their example in the Gospel is like plants that grow taller and stronger, and please the farmers.
He thus enrages the disbelievers. GOD promises those among them who believe, and lead a righteous life, forgiveness and a great recompense.
13Then Jesus said to them, “Don't you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? 14The farmer sows the word. 15Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. 16Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. 17But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 18Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. 20Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop–thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown.”
[14:24] Do you not see that GOD has cited the example of the good word as a good tree whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches are high in the sky?
[14:25] It produces its crop every season, as designed by its Lord. GOD thus cites the examples for the people, that they may take heed.
[14:26] And the example of the bad word is that of a bad tree chopped at the soil level; it has no roots to keep it standing.
[14:27] GOD strengthens those who believe with the proven word, in this life and in the Hereafter. And GOD sends the transgressors astray. Everything is in accordance with GOD's will.
‘Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and
with all your soul and
with all your mind.’
38This is the first
[2:165] Yet, some people set up idols to rival GOD, and love them as if they are GOD.
Those who believe love GOD the most.
If only the transgressors could see themselves when they see the retribution! They will realize then that all power belongs to GOD alone, and that GOD's retribution is awesome.
