NO WORLDLY OCCUPATION PREVENTS BELIEVERS FROM SEEKING GOD'S GOOD PLEASURE

[They are] not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of God, the establishment of prayer, and the payment of alms; fearing a day when all hearts and eyes will be in turmoil. (Qur'an, 24:37)

New Testament

... It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. (Acts 6:2)


TO BE WITH BELIEVERS

Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance, who follows his own whims and desires, and whose life has transgressed all bounds. (Qur'an, 18:28)

New Testament

... Pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22)


THE BROTHERHOOD OF BELIEVERS

Hold fast to the rope of God all together, and do not separate. Remember God's blessing to you when you were enemies and He joined your hearts together so that you became brothers by His blessing. You were on the very brink of a pit of the Fire, and He rescued you from it. In this way God makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be guided. (Qur'an, 3:103)

The male and female believers are friends of one another. They command what is right and forbid what is wrong, perform prayer and give the alms, and obey God and His Messenger… (Qur'an, 9:71)

New Testament

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10)

Whoever does God's will is my brother and sister and mother. (Mark 3:35)


TO BE STEADFAST IN GOD'S RELIGION

As for those who hold fast to the Book and perform prayer, We will not let the wage of the righteous be wasted. (Qur'an, 7:170)

So hold fast to what has been revealed to you. You are on a straight path. (Qur'an, 43:43)

Hold fast to the rope of God all together, and do not separate. Remember God's blessing to you... (Qur'an, 3:103)

New Testament

So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. (2 Thessalonians 2:15)

He [an overseer] must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. (Titus 1:9)


A BELIEVER'S LIFE AND DEATH ARE FOR GOD

Say: "My prayer and my rites, my living and my dying, are for God alone, the Lord of all the worlds." (Qur'an, 6:162)

Those who, when disaster strikes them, say: "We belong to God, and to Him we will return." (Qur'an, 2:156)

New Testament

For none of us lives to himself alone, and none of us dies to himself alone. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. (Romans 14:7-8)
