And He listens to those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, and gives them increase of His bounty: but for the unbelievers there is a terrible penalty.

If Allah were to enlarge the provision for His servants, they would indeed transgress beyond all bounds through the earth; but He sends down in due measure as He pleases. For He is with His servants Well-Acquainted, Watchful.

Whatever you are given is a convenience of this life: but that which is with Allah is better and more lasting: for those who believe and put their trust in their Lord.

  • 17:18 (Asad) Unto him who cares for this fleeting life We readily grant thereof as much as We please, to whomever it is Our will; but in the end We consign him to hell; [23] which he will have to endure disgraced and disowned! -

  • 17:19 (Asad) But as for those who care for the life to come, and strive for it as it ought to be striven for, and are believers withal [24] -they are the ones whose striving finds favour! 

  • 17:20 (Asad) All -these as well as those -do We freely endow with some of thy Sustainer's gifts, since thy Sustainer's giving is never confined 

  • 17:21 (Asad) Behold how We bestow more bounty on some of them than on others: but the life to come will be far higher in degree and far greater in merit and bounty.

  • 34:36
    Say: "Verily my lord enlarges and restricts the Provision to whom He pleases, but most men understand not."

    It is not your wealth nor your sons, that will bring you nearer to Us in degree: but only those who believe and work righteousness -- these are the ones for whom there is a multiplied reward for their deeds, while secure they in the dwelling on high!

    Say: "Verily my Lord enlarges and restricts the sustance to such of His servants as He pleases: and nothing do you spent in the least but He replaces it: for He is the Best of those who grant sustance."
