But associate with them in the world with kindness, and follow the way of him who turns repentant unto Me; then unto Me is your return, then I will inform you of that which you have done.
31:16  'O my son! Indeed it, if it be the weight of a grain of a mustard seed, and it be in a rock or in the heavens or in the earth, God will bring it forth. Indeed God is subtle, aware.

31:18  And twist not your cheek proudly to men, and do not walk in the earth exultantly; indeed, God does not like every arrogant boaster.

31:20  Have you not seen that God has subjected to you what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, and has poured down upon you His favours, outwardly and inwardly? But among men are those who dispute about God, without knowledge, and without guidance, and without an illuminating book.
