Surah 22 Al-Hajj
T"are two verses in the beginning of chapter Two named Baqarah from where the guidance begins, describing Iman – Belief and the Believers. Verse 2-3 and 2-4 refer. For the purposes of this article and brevity, verse 2-4 only is quoted:
2-4: And who believe in the revelations sent to you and sent before your times and (in their hearts) have the assurance of hereafter.
Refer also to 4-162.

This wholeness is loaded with a higher principle of the tenet of Quran and Partial acceptance of its principle therefore is not Iman."

niko naam jo qabron' kee tijaarat kar kay
nah bechoge jo miljaen' sanum pathhar kay!
