The reader should take time to understand and meditate the Quranic Ayaat, and if possible, my advice is to get the copy of Quran in any preferable language of your choice and learn. If you find anything not clear it doesn’t mean that Quran is wrong but it’s because our knowledge is not enough to understand the book and we need the teacher and from my opinion the best teacher is The book “Quran” itself (As an Ayat on the same subject from one chapter may be clarified by another Ayat from another chapter) and Hadiths or Traditions of Prophet Muhammed (which gives more light on the understanding of Quran) from volumes by Sahih Muslim and Sahih Al-Bukhariy known as Sahihayn (Sahih means genuine or authentic or sound and in Arabic Sahihayn means double authentic referring to the volumes written by these two scholars, the authentic volumes of Al-bukhariy and Muslim) and all these are now available online which requires only internet and search engine such as Google.
If you find any error in this small eBook then it’s from me and not Quran and I ask forgiveness from the creator. We should also remember that human beings are not exempted from errors and this is one of the human weaknesses as only the creator “Allah” is perfect.
In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Master of the Day of Judgment.
It is you we worship, and upon you we call for help.
Guide us to the straight path.
The path of those you have blessed, not of those against whom there is anger,
Nor of those who are misguided
My Lord, expand for me my breast [with assurance]
And ease for me my task
And untie the knot from my tongue
That they may understand my speech.
Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so].
O you who have believed, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace.
There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern
For anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.
I ask my Lord Allah to accept my prayers to Prophet Muhammad.
I also ask him to assist me to accomplish this small humble task.
As always we are required to start all our activities with a prayer praising Allah;
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
Ayat Number 82 Chapter An-Nisa (The Women)
Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.
Ne méditent-ils donc pas sur le Coran? S’il provenait d’un autre qu’Allah, ils y trouveraient certes maintes contradictions!
Ayat Number 53 Chapter Fussilat (Explained in Detail)
We will show them our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness
Nous leur montrerons Nos signes dans l’univers et en eux-mêmes, jusqu’à ce qu’il leur devienne évident que c’est cela (le Coran), la Vérité. Ne suffit-il pas que ton Seigneur soit témoin de toute-chose?

I dedicate these few pages to my parents, my family, my wife and her family
And to all brothers and sisters who strive in the way of the Creator (Allah)
This booklet is a collection of some Ayaat from the Glorious book “Quran” which qualify
To be named as “Formulas”. They are Equations which involve input and output. I think the best title for these formulas would be “Pearl and Diamonds from the Quran”.
I believe the human being needs these Ayaat during all times and conditions such as happiness or unhappiness. They console and give us hope.
I have used throughout this booklet the name of God as Allah (As Allah has no gender or number as you can do with the word God), the word Ayat instead of Verse (Plural Ayaat) as Ayat (means signs) has deeper meaning than Verse.
I have also used the initials PBUH (peace be upon him) after the title “prophet” or name “Mohamed” or both “Prophet Mohammed” as requested all of us to do whenever one of these are / is mentioned.

These Quotations are promises from our creator of what we are supposed to do and the rewards which will follow if we apply them in our lives. They are not mere promises from human beings which are sometimes based on uncertainty but from the king of kings, who all the creatures, heavens and earth belongs to him. He is the omnipotent, and the master of the day of judgement, He doesn’t need from us anything as he is always the giver, He is one, the sublime, and not similar to anything we know or think. All the things he asks us to do are for our benefit ourselves not for him as he created all what we possess. It’s completely crazy to have a single thought that Allah requires something for his benefit.
I ask the creator to accept this humble task as I have written this small eBook seeking
