There is to be no compulsion in religion.
True direction is in fact distinct from error:
so whoever disbelieves in idols
and believes in God
has taken hold
of the most reliable handle,
which does not break.
For God is all-hearing and all-knowing.
The Qu’ran, The Cow, 256
God does not compel a soul
to do what is beyond its capacity:
it gets what it has earned,
and is responsible for what it deserves.
please do not punish us
if we forget or we err.
The Qu’ran, The Cow, 285-286
On the day when every soul
will be brought face to face
with the good that it has done
and with the evil it has done,
it will wish there were a great distance
between itself and its evil.
And God makes you cautious of God:
and God is gracious to servants.
The Qu’ran, The Family of Imraan, 29, 30
