The verses below are the 176 verses in the Qur’an beginning with “Say”. These verses are important because they are direct commandments to the prophet.
2:94 Say "If the abode of the Hereafter has been set exclusively for you with God, to the exception of all other people, then you should wish for death if you are truthful!" 2:97 Say "Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel, then know that he has sent it down into your heart with the permission of God, affirming what is with him, and a guide and good news for the believers." 2:136 Say "We believe in God and in what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abram, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make a distinction between any of them and to Him we submit." 2:139 Say "Do you debate with us regarding God? He is our Lord and your Lord, and we have our works and you have your works, and to Him we are believers." 3:12 Say to those who have rejected "You will be defeated and gathered towards Hell, what a miserable abode!" 3:15 Say "Shall I inform you of what is greater than all this? For those who believe in their Lord will be estates with rivers flowing beneath them; abiding therein, and with pure mates, and an acceptance from God. And God is Seer over the servants." 3:26 Say "Our god, Possessor of kingship; You grant kingship to whom You please, and revoke kingship from whom You please, and honor whom You please, and humiliate whom You please; in Your hand is goodness. You are capable of all things." 3:29 Say "Whether you hide what is in your chests or you reveal it, God will know." And He knows what is in the heavens and the earth; and God is capable of all things. 3:31 Say "If you love God then follow me so God will love you and forgive your sins." God is Forgiver, Merciful. 3:32 Say "Obey God and the messenger." But if they turn away, then God does not love the rejecters. 3:64 Say "O people of the Book, let us come to a mutual understanding between us and between you; that we serve none except God, and that we do not set up anything with Him, and that none of us takes each other as patrons besides God." If they turn away, then say "Bear witness that we have submitted." 3:84 Say "We believe in God and what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We do not make a distinction between any of them, and to Him we submit." 3:95 Say "God bears truth. Follow the creed of Abraham, monotheism, and he was not of the polytheists." 3:98 Say "O people of the Book, why do you reject the revelations of God, while God is witness over what you do?" 3:99 Say "O people of the Book, why do you repel from the path of God those who believe? You wish to twist it while you are witnesses. And God is not unaware of what you do." 5:59 Say "O people of the Book, do you hate us simply because we believe in God and in what was sent down to us and what was sent down before?" Alas, the majority of them are wicked. 5:60 Say "Shall I inform you of worse than this as a punishment from God? Those whom God cursed and became angry at them, and He made from them apes and pigs and servants of evil. Those have a worse place and are more astray from the right path." 5:68 Say "O people of the Book, you are not upon anything until you uphold the Torah and the Gospel and what was sent down to you from your Lord." And for many of them, what was sent down to you from your Lord will only increase them in transgression and rejection. So do not feel sorry for the rejecting people. 5:76 Say "Do you serve other than God what cannot harm you or benefit you?" God is the Hearer, the Knower. 5:77 Say "O people of the Book, do not overstep in your system other than the truth, and do not follow the desires of a people who have been misguided before, and they misguide many; and they strayed from the right path." 5:100 Say "The nasty and the good are not equal, even if the abundance of the nasty impresses you." So be aware of God, O you who possess intelligence, that you may succeed. 6:11 Say "Roam the earth, then see what the punishment of the rejecters was!" 6:12 Say "To whom is all that is in the heavens and the earth?" Say "To God." He has decreed mercy on Himself, that He will gather you to the Day of Resurrection in which there is no doubt. Those who have lost their souls, they do not believe. 6:14 Say "Shall I take other than God as an ally; the Initiator of the heavens and the earth; while He feeds and is not fed!" Say "I have been commanded to be the first who submits." And do not be of the polytheists. 6:15 Say "I fear if I disobey my Lord, the retribution of a great Day!" 6:19 Say "Which is the greatest testimony?" Say "God is witness between me and you, and He has inspired to me this Qur’an that I may warn you with it and whoever it reaches, that you are bearing witness that with God are other gods!" Say "I do not bear witness!" Say "He is only One god, and I am innocent of what you have set up!" 6:40 Say "We will see when the retribution of God comes to you, or the Hour comes to you, if you will still call on any other than God. If you are being truthful." 6:46 Say "Do you see that if God were to take away your hearing and your eyesight, and He seals your hearts; which god besides God can bring it to you?" See how We dispatch the signs, but then they turn away. 6:47 Say "Do you see if the retribution of God comes to you suddenly, or gradually, will anyone be destroyed except the wicked people?" 6:50 Say "I do not say to you that I possess the treasures of God, nor do I know the future, nor do I say to you that I am an angel. I merely follow what is inspired to me." Say "Are the blind and the seer the same? Do you not think?" 6:56 Say "I am prohibited from serving those you call upon other than God" Say "I will not follow your desires, otherwise I would go astray and I would not be of those guided." 6:57 Say "I am on a clarity from my Lord and you have denied it. I do not have what you hasten towards; the judgment is with God only; He narrates the truth, and He is the best decider." 6:58 Say "If I had what you were hastening towards, then the matter between us would have been resolved. And God is fully aware of the wicked." 6:63 Say "Who rescues you from the darkness of the land and the sea?" You call on Him in humility and in secret "If You save us from this, we will be of the thankful!" 6:64 Say "God will save you from it and from all distresses, yet you will still set up partners!" 6:65 Say "He is able to send retribution from above you or from below your feet, or He will make you belong to opposing factions, then He will let you taste the might of each other." See how We dispatch the signs, perhaps they may understand. 6:71 Say "Shall we call upon other than God what cannot benefit us or harm us, and we turn back on our heels after God has guided us?" This is like the one whom the devils have managed to mislead on the earth, he is confused, having friends who call him to the guidance "Come to us!" Say "The guidance is the guidance of God, and we have been ordered to submit to the Lord of the worlds." 6:135 Say "My people, work as you see fit, for I too am working. You will then know to whom will be the punishment of the Hereafter. The wicked will not succeed." 6:145 Say "I do not find in what is inspired to me to be forbidden for any eater to eat, except that it be already dead, or running blood, or the meat of pig - for it is foul - or what has become vile by being sacrificed to other than God." But whoever is forced to, without seeking disobedience or transgression, then your Lord is Forgiving, Merciful. 6:149 Say "With God is the greatest argument. If He wished He would have guided you all." 6:150 Say "Bring forth your witnesses who bear witness that God has made this forbidden." If they bear witness, then do not bear witness with them, nor follow the desires of those who deny Our revelations, and those who do not believe in the Hereafter; and they make equals with their Lord! 6:151 Say "Come let me recite what your Lord has forbidden for you that you should not set up anything with Him; and do good to your parents; and do not kill your children for fear of poverty, We provide for you and for them; and do not come near immorality, what is public of it and private; and do not kill the life, as God has forbidden this, except in justice. That is what He enjoined you that you may comprehend." 6:161 Say "My Lord has guided me to a straight path, an upright system, the creed of Abraham the monotheist; he was not of the polytheists." 6:162 Say "My communion, and my rites, and my life, and my death, are all to God - Lord of the worlds." 6:164 Say "Shall I seek other than God as a Lord when He is the Lord of everything?" And every soul earns what is for it; and no bearer may carry the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return and He will inform you of what you disputed in. 7:29 Say "My Lord orders justice, and that you set your faces at every temple, and that you call on Him, while being faithful to Him in the system; as He initiated you, so you will return." 7:32 Say "Who has made forbidden the nice things that God has brought forth for His servants and the good provisions?" Say "They are meant for those who believe during this worldly life, and they will be exclusive for them on the Day of Resurrection." It is such that We explain the revelations for those who know. 7:33 Say "My Lord has made forbidden immorality; what is public of it and private; and sin, and aggression without cause, and that you set up partners with God that which He has never authorized, and that you say about God what you do not know." 7:158 Say "O people, I am a messenger of God to you all. The One who has the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, there is no god except He; He gives life and causes death." So believe in God and His messenger, the gentile prophet, who believes in God and His words; and follow him that you may be guided. 7:188 Say "I do not possess for myself any benefit or harm, except what God wills. And if I could know the future, then I would have increased my good fortune, and no harm would have come to me. I am but a warner and a bearer of good news to a people who believe." 8:38 Say to the rejecters, if they cease, then what has passed before will be forgiven to them, and if they return to it, then the example of the previous generations has already been given. 9:24 Say "If your fathers, and your sons, and your brothers, and your wives, and your kin, and money which you have gathered, and a trade which you would be concerned over its decline, and homes which you find pleasing; if these are dearer to you than God and His messenger and striving in His cause, then wait until God brings His decision. And God does not guide the wicked people." 9:51 Say "Nothing will befall us except what God has decreed for us, He is our Patron." And in God the believers shall put their trust. 9:52 Say "You can only expect for us one of two good things; while we wait for you to be afflicted by God with a retribution from Him, or by our hands. So wait, we are with you waiting." 9:53 Say "Spend willingly or unwillingly, it will not be accepted from you. You are a wicked people." 10:16 Say "If God had willed, I would not have recited it to you, nor would you have known about it. I have been residing among you for nearly a lifetime before this; do you not comprehend?" 10:31 Say "Who provides for you from the heavens and the earth? Who possesses the hearing and the eyesight? And who brings the living out from the dead and brings the dead out from the living? And who manages all affairs?" They will say "God." Say "Will you not be righteous!" 10:34 Say "Are there any from those whom you have set up as partners who can initiate the creation and then return it?" Say "God initiates the creation and then returns it." How are you deluded! 10:35 Say "Are there any of those whom you set up as partners who can guide to the truth?" Say "God guides to the truth. Is He who guides to the truth more worthy of being followed, or he who does not guide except after he is guided? What is wrong with you, how do you judge?" 10:49 Say "I do not possess for myself any harm or benefit except what God wills. For every nation is a time. When their time comes, they cannot delay it one hour nor advance it." 10:50 Say "Do you see if His retribution will come to you by night or by day, then which portion would the criminals hasten in?" 10:58 Say "By the grace of God and His mercy." For that let them rejoice, that is better than all that they gather. 10:59 Say "Have you seen what God has sent down to you from provisions, then you have made some of it forbidden and some permissible?" Say "Did God authorize you, or do you invent lies about God?" 10:69 Say "Those who invent lies about God, they will not be successful." 10:101 Say "Look at all that is in the heavens and the earth." But what good are the signs and warnings to a people who do not believe? 10:104 Say "O people, if you are in doubt of my system, then I do not serve those whom you serve besides God. But I serve God; the One who will terminate your lives; and I have been commanded to be of the believers." 10:108 Say "O people, the truth has come to you from your Lord, so whoever is guided is being guided for himself, and whoever is misguided will remain so, and I am not a caretaker over you." 12:108 Say "This is my way, I invite to God in full disclosure, myself and whoever follows me. And glory be to God; and I am not of the polytheists." 13:16 Say "Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?" Say "God." Say "Have you taken besides Him allies who do not possess for themselves any benefit or harm?" Say "Is the blind and the seer the same? Or do the darkness and the light equate? Or have they set up partners with God who have created like His creation, so the creations all seemed the same to them?" Say "God has created all things, and He is the One, the Supreme." 14:31 Say to My servants who believe, that they should hold the communion, and spend from what provisions We granted them secretly and openly, before a Day comes when there is no trade therein, nor will there be any friends. 16:102 Say "The Holy Spirit has brought it down from your Lord with the truth, so that those who believe will be strengthened, and as a guidance and good news for those who have submitted." 17:42 Say "If there had been gods with Him as they say, then they would have tried to gain a way to the Throne." 17:50 Say "Even if you become rocks or metal." 17:56 Say "Call on those you have claimed besides Him. For they have no power to remove harm from you or shift it." 17:84 Say "Let each work according to his own. Your Lord is fully aware of who is best guided to the path." 17:88 Say "If all mankind and the Jinn were to gather to bring a Qur’an like this, they could not come with its like, even if they were helping one another." 17:95 Say "If the earth had angels walking about in security, We would have sent down to them from the heaven an angel as a messenger." 17:96 Say "God suffices as a witness between me and you. He is Expert and Seer over His servants." 17:100 Say "If you were the ones possessing the vaults of the mercy of my Lord, you would have held back for concern of spending. And the human being was always stingy!" 17:107 Say "Believe in it or do not believe in it. Those who have been given the knowledge before it, when it is recited to them, they fall to their chins prostrating." 17:110 Say "Call on God or call on the Almighty; by whichever you call on, to Him are the best names." And do not be too loud in your communion, nor too quiet; but seek a path in between. 18:26 Say "God is fully aware how long they remained, to Him is the unseen of the heavens and the earth, He sees and hears. They do not have besides Him any ally, and He does not share in His judgment with anyone." 18:103 Say "Shall we inform you of the greatest losers?" 18:109 Say "If the sea were an inkwell for the words of my Lord, then the sea would run out before the words of my Lord run out;" even if We were to bring another like it as an extension. 18:110 Say "I am but a mortal like you, being inspired that your god is One god. So whoever looks forward to meeting his Lord, then let him do good works, and not serve anyone besides his Lord." 19:75 Say "Whoever is in misguidance, then the Almighty will lead them on." Until they see what they have been promised, either the retribution or the Hour. Then they will know who is in a worse place and weaker in power. 20:135 Say "All are waiting, so wait, and you will come to know who are the people upon the even path and who are guided." 21:4 Say "My Lord knows what is said in the heavens and on the earth, and He is the Hearer, the Knower." 21:42 Say "Who can protect you during the night and the day from the Almighty?" No, they are turning away from the remembrance of their Lord. 21:45 Say "I am merely warning you with the inspiration." But the deaf do not hear the call when they are being warned. 21:108 Say "It is inspired to me that your god is but One god, so will you submit to Him?" 22:49 Say "O people, I am but a clear warner to you!" 23:84 Say "To whom is the earth and whoever is in it if you know?" 23:86 Say "Who is the Lord of the seven heavens and the Lord of the great Throne?" 23:88 Say "In whose hand is the sovereignty of all things, and He protects while there is no protector against Him, if you know?" 23:93 Say "My Lord, if You show me what they are promised." 24:54 Say "Obey God, and obey the messenger." But if they turn away, then he is only responsible for his obligation, and you are responsible for your obligations. And if you obey him, you will be guided. The messenger is only required to deliver clearly. 25:6 Say "It was sent down by the One who knows the secrets in the heavens and the earth. He is always Forgiving, Merciful." 25:15 Say "Is that better or the garden of eternity that the righteous have been promised?" It is their reward and destiny. 25:57 Say "I do not ask you for any wage; but for whoever chooses to make a path to his Lord." 25:77 Say "My Lord would not care about you except for your imploring. But you have denied, so it will be your destiny." 27:59 Say "Praise be to God, and peace be upon His servants whom He has selected." Is God better, or that which you set up? 27:65 Say "None in the heavens or the earth know the unseen except God. And they do not perceive when they will be resurrected." 27:69 Say "Roam the earth and see how was the end of the criminals." 27:72 Say "Perhaps He is now sending your way some of that which you hasten." 27:93 Say "Praise be to God, He will show you His signs and you will know them. And your Lord is not unaware of what you do." 28:49 Say "Then bring forth a book from God that is better than them in guidance so I may follow it, if you are truthful." 28:71 Say "Have you noted what if God made the night eternal, until the Day of Resurrection? Which god, other than God, can bring you with light? Do you not listen?" 28:72 Say "Have you noted what if God made the daylight eternal, until the Day of Resurrection? Which god, other than God, can provide you with night for you to reside in? Do you not see?" 29:20 Say "Roam the earth and observe how the creation was initiated. Thus God will establish the final creation. God is capable of all things." 29:52 Say "God is enough as a witness between me and you. He knows what is in the heavens and the earth. As for those who believe in falsehood and reject God, they are the losers." 30:42 Say "Roam the earth and see how the end was for those before. Most of them were polytheists." 32:11 Say "Your lives will be terminated by the angel of death that has been assigned to you, then to your Lord you will be returned." 32:29 Say "On the day of the victory, it will not benefit those who rejected if they believe, nor will they be given respite." 33:16 Say "It will not benefit you to flee away from death or from being killed, for you will only have the enjoyment for a short while." 33:17 Say "Who can protect you from God if He intends to harm you, or He intends any blessing for you?" They will never find besides God any ally or victor. 34:22 Say "Call on those whom you have claimed besides God. They do not possess even the weight of an atom in the heavens, or the earth. They possess no partnership therein, nor is there for Him any assistant among them." 34:24 Say "Who provides for you from the heavens and the earth?" Say "God! And either we or you are guided, or are clearly astray." 34:25 Say "You will not be asked about our crimes, nor will we be asked for what you do." 34:26 Say "Our Lord will gather us together then He will judge between us with the truth. He is the Judge, the Knowledgeable." 34:27 Say "Show me those whom you have set up as partners with Him! No; He is but God, the Noble, the Wise." 34:30 Say "You have an appointed Day, which you cannot delay by one hour, nor advance." 34:36 Say "My Lord gives provisions to whoever He wishes, or He restricts them, but most of the people do not know." 34:39 Say "My Lord gives provisions for whom He wishes of His servants and He restricts. And anything you spend, He will replace it; and He is the best of providers." 34:46 Say "I advise you to do one thing that you stand to God, in twos and individually, then reflect." There is no madness in your friend, he is only a warner to you in the face of a severe retribution. 34:47 Say "I have not asked you for any wage; for it will be your own. My wage is from God, and He is Witness over all things." 34:48 Say "My Lord casts with the truth. He is the Knower of all secrets." 34:49 Say "The truth has come; while falsehood can neither initiate anything, nor resurrect." 34:50 Say "If I stray, then I stray to my own loss. And if I am guided, then it is because of what my Lord inspired to me. He is Hearer, Near." 35:40 Say "Do you see the partners whom you have called on besides God? Show me what they have created on the earth. Or do they possess any partnership in the heavens?" Or have We given them a book wherein they are taking knowledge from it? Indeed, what the transgressors promise one another is no more than arrogance. 36:58 Saying of "Peace" from a Merciful Lord. 36:79 Say "The One who has made them in the first place will resurrect them. He is fully aware of every creation." 37:18 Say "Yes, and you will be humbled." 38:65 Say "I am but a warner; and there is no god besides God, the One, the Supreme." 38:67 Say "It is an awesome news." 38:86 Say "I do not ask you for any wage, nor am I a fraud." 39:10 Say "O My servants who believed, be aware of your Lord." For those who worked righteousness in this world will be a good reward, and the earth of God is spacious. Those who steadfastly persevere will receive their recompense fully, without reckoning. 39:11 Say "I have been commanded to serve God, devoting the system to Him." 39:13 Say "I fear, if I disobeyed my Lord, the retribution of a great Day." 39:14 Say "God is the One I serve, devoting my system to Him." 39:39 Say "O my people, work according to your way, and I will work. You will come to know." 39:44 Say "To God belongs all intercession." To Him belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, then to Him you will be returned. 39:46 Say "Our god, Initiator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, You will judge between Your servants regarding what they disputed in." 39:53 Say "O My servants who transgressed against themselves, do not despair of the mercy of God. For God forgives all sins. He is the Forgiver, the Merciful." 39:64 Say "Do you order me to serve other than God, O you ignorant ones?" 40:66 Say "I have been prohibited from serving those whom you are calling upon besides God, since the proofs have come to me from my Lord. And I have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds." 41:6 Say "I am no more than a mortal like you. It is inspired to me that your god is One god, therefore you shall be upright towards Him and seek His forgiveness. And woe to the polytheists." 41:9 Say "You are rejecting the One who has created the earth in two days, and you set up equals with Him. That is the Lord of the worlds." 41:52 Say "Do you see if this was from God and then you rejected it? Who is further astray than those who are in opposition?" 43:81 Say "If the Almighty had a son, I would be the first to serve!" 45:14 Say to those who believed to forgive those who do not look forward to the days of God. He will recompense a people for whatever they have earned. 45:26 Say "God gives you life, then He puts you to death, then He will gather you to the Day of Resurrection, in which there is no doubt. But most of the people do not know." 46:4 Say "Do you see those that you call on besides God? Show me what they have created on the earth, or do they have a share in the heavens? Bring me a book before this, or any trace of knowledge, if you are truthful." 46:9 Say "I am no different from the other messengers, nor do I know what will happen to me or to you. I only follow what is inspired to me. I am no more than a clear warner." 46:10 Say "Do you see that if it were from God, and you rejected it, and a witness from the Children of Israel gave testimony to its similarity, and he has believed, while you have turned arrogant? Surely, God does not guide the wicked people." 48:16 Say to those Nomads who lagged behind "You will be called on to fight a people who are very powerful in warfare, unless they surrender. Then if you obey, God will grant you a good reward, but if you turn away as you turned away before, He will punish you with a painful retribution." 49:16 Say "Are you teaching God about your system while God knows everything in the heavens and the earth? God is knowledgeable of all things." 52:31 Say "Continue waiting; for I will wait along with you." 56:49 Say "The people of old and the later generations," 62:6 Say "O you who are Jewish, if you claim that you are the chosen of God, to the exclusion of all other people, then you should long for death if you are truthful!" 62:8 Say "The death that you are fleeing from, it will come to find you. Then you will be returned to the Knower of all secrets and declarations, then He will inform you of everything you had done." 67:23 Say "He is the One who initiated you, and made for you the hearing, the eyes, and the minds. Little do you give thanks." 67:24 Say "He is the One who placed you on the earth, and to Him you will be gathered." 67:26 Say "The knowledge is with God, and I am but a clear warner." 67:28 Say "Do you see? If God annihilates me and those with me, or He bestows mercy upon us, who is there to protect the rejecters from a painful retribution?" 67:29 Say "He is the Almighty; we believe in Him, and we put our trust in Him. You will come to find out who is clearly astray." 67:30 Say "What if your water becomes deep underground, who then can provide you with pure water?" 72:1 Say "It has been inspired to me that a group of Jinn were listening." They said "We have heard a magnificent Qur’an!" 72:20 Say "I only call on my Lord, and I do not set up anyone with Him." 72:21 Say "I have no power to harm you nor to show you what is right." 72:22 Say "No one can protect me from God, and I will not find any refuge except with Him." 72:25 Say "I do not know if what you are promised is near, or if my Lord will delay it for a while." 109:1 Say "O rejecters," 112:1 Say "He is God, the One," 113:1 Say "I seek refuge with the Lord of the rising dawn," 114:1 Say "I seek refuge with the Lord of the people,"
