TO PRACTICE AS ONE PREACHES

Do you order people to devoutness and forget yourselves, when you recite the Book? Will you not use your intellect? (Qur'an, 2:44)

New Testament

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother: "Let me take the speck out of your eye," when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. (Matthew 7:3-5)

So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment? (Romans 2:3)


TO SAY "GOD WILLING"

Never say about anything: "I am doing that tomorrow" without adding "if God wills." Remember your Lord when you forget, and say: "Hopefully my Lord will guide me to something closer to right guidance than this." (Qur'an, 18:23-24)

New Testament

Now listen, you who say: "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say: "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." (James 4:13-15)


TO EXCHANGE GREETINGS

... And when you enter houses, greet one another with a greeting from God, blessed and good.... (Qur'an, 24:61)

New Testament

As you enter the home, give it your greeting. (Matthew 10:12)


NOT TO FEAR AND NOT TO DESPAIR

[Prophets are] those who conveyed God's Message and fear Him, fearing no one except God. God suffices as a Reckoner. (Qur'an, 33:39)

They [Moses and Aaron] said: "Our Lord, we are afraid that he [Pharaoh] might persecute us or overstep the bounds." He said: "Fear not. I will be with you, All-Hearing and All-Seeing." (Qur'an, 20:45-46)

[Believers are] those to whom people said: "The people have gathered against you, so fear them." But that merely increased their faith and they said: "God is enough for us and the Best of Guardians." So they returned with blessings and bounty from God, and no evil touched them. They pursued the pleasure of God. God's favor is indeed immense. That was only Satan who intimidated his adherents. But do not fear them-fear Me if you are believers. (Qur'an, 3:173-75)

New Testament

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened." (1 Peter 3:14)

Old Testament

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with Us than with him. (2 Chronicles 32:7)


VIRTUE AND ONE'S FEAR AND AWE OF GOD

O Children of Adam! We have sent down clothing to you to conceal your private parts, and fine apparel, but the garment of heedfulness-that is best! That is one of God's Signs, so that hopefully you will pay heed. (Qur'an, 7:26)

New Testament

[O Women!] Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. (1 Peter 3:3-4)

Old Testament

... Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)


TO REFRAIN FROM LYING

... Have done with the defilement of idols and have done with telling lies. (Qur'an, 22:30)

New Testament

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood... (Ephesians 4:25)

Old Testament

Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not deceive one another... (Leviticus 19:11)

Do not spread false reports. Do not help a wicked man by being a malicious witness.

Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd. (Exodus 23:1-2)
