[1] وَقِيلَ لِلَّذِينَ ٱتَّقَوۡاْ مَاذَآ أَنزَلَ رَبُّكُمۡ‌ۚ قَالُواْ خَيۡرًا‌ ۗ لِّلَّذِينَ أَحۡسَنُواْ فِى هَـٰذِهِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا حَسَنَةٌ ‌ۚ وَلَدَارُ ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ خَيۡرٌ ۚ وَلَنِعۡمَ دَارُ ٱلۡمُتَّقِينَ (١٦: ٣٠)

[2] وَلَوۡ يُؤَاخِذُ ٱللّٰهُ ٱلنَّاسَ بِظُلۡمِهِم مَّا تَرَكَ عَلَيۡهَا مِن دَآبَّةٍ وَلـٰكِن يُؤَخِّرُهُمۡ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى‌ۖ فَإِذَا جَآءَ أَجَلُهُمۡ لَا يَسۡتَـٔۡخِرُونَ سَاعَةً ‌ۖ وَلَا يَسۡتَقۡدِمُونَ (١٦: ٦١)
