Sins in Islam- Part 21
Evil (sayyea) is a highly important topic in Islam and the Holy Quran has referred to it in more than 150 Ayahs and I quote below some related Ayahs:

Ayah 193 of Surah Aale-Imran: “Lord! We have indeed heard the call of a Caller (Messenger) calling us to faith saying: ‘Believe in your Lord’, and we believed. Lord! Forgive us then our sins and remove from us our evil deeds, and cause us to die with the virtuous ones.”
Ayahs 18 of Surah An-Nisa: “Repentance is not for those who continue to do evil until when death faces one of them, he says: ‘Now surely I repent’ nor for those who die disbelievers. For them We have prepared a grievous torment.”
Ayah 12 of Surah Al-Ma’ida: “….I will certainly remove your sins and admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow, but whoever disbelieves after this, from among you, he has indeed gone astray from the Right Path.”
Ayah 168 of Surah Al-A’raaf: “….and We tried them with good and with evil so that they might turn to the Right Path.”
Ayah 114 of Surah Hud: “Establish prayers at the two ends of the day, and at the approach of the night. Indeed the good deeds remove the evil ones; this is a reminder for the believers who are mindful of their Lord.”
Ayah 46 of Surah An-Naml: “He (Salih) said: “O people! Why do you seek to hasten to evil deeds before the good ones? Should you seek God’s pardon, you may receive His mercy.”
Ayah 34 of Surah Fusselat: “The good and the evil cannot be equal. Repel evil with what is best when, lo, he between whom and you there was enmity shall become as though he was a close friend.”
Ayah 25 of Surah Ash-Shura: “He it is Who accepts repentance from His servants and forgives sins, and He knows what you do.”

Second sermon
Importance of time and place in Islam -Part 2
Like ‘time’, ‘place’ is of great importance in Islam and the Holy Quran has referred to it and its benefits from two different aspects, general and specific, in more than 460 Ayahs; some of which are quoted hereinafter:

Ayah 22 of Surah Al-Baqarah: “Who made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky a canopy, and caused water to descend from the heavens and thereby produced fruits for your sustenance; therefore do not set up equal to God while you already know.”
Ayah 53 of Surah Taha: “He Who made the earth for you a bed and made for you paths therein, and sent down water from the heavens; then We have brought forth thereby various kinds of vegetation.”
Ayah 105 of Surah Al-Anbiya: “And indeed We have written in Psalms (Zabur), after the Reminder (Torah), that My righteous servants shall inherit the earth.”
Ayah 61, Surah An-Naml: “Is not He Who has made the earth a resting place, created rivers therein and placed mountains upon it, and set a barrier between
the two seas? Is there any god besides God? Nay, but most of them do not know.”
Ayah 10 of Surah Az-Zukhruf: “He Who has made for you the earth a cradle, and made paths therein for you that you may be rightly guided.”
Ayah 48 of Surah Ad-Dariyat: “And the earth We spread out;, how excellent the Spreader!”
Ayah 10 of Surah Ar-Rahmaan: “And the earth He has has made for His creatures.”
Ayah 15 of Surah Al-Mulk: “He Who has made the earth subservient to you, so walk on its the path and eat of His provision. To Him alone is the ultimate return.”
Ayah 19 of Surah Nuh: “And verily God has made for you the earth spacious.”
Ayah 25 of Surah Al-Mursalat: “Have We not made the earth a receptacle?”
