Ten Special Commandments of Almighty Creator

Does the Ten Special Commandment of Almighty Creator (given in Tâẃrah/Torah) also exist in Quran? Which one is in the best form for mankind? Learn about these from the article below… Aset of Laws, known as “Ten Commandments”, was given to mankind through Prophet Mûsâ in Tâẃrah. These were some major Laws given by Allah for the people of that Era. Actually, these Laws were not only for that era, but also for always. So, Allah again revealed these Laws through His Final Revelation, the Quran. Let us then read the “Ten Commandments” from Quran:

No Verses in Quran
1st “There is no other god beside Allah” (Quran, Muhammad 47:19)
2nd “There is nothing like Him” (Quran, Ash Shura 42:11) “No vision can grasp Him” (Quran, Al Anam 6:103) “Worship none (any Idols) but Allah” (Quran, Fussilat 41:14)
3rd “… Do not make Allah’s (Name) an excuse in your oaths against your doing good and acting piously, and making peace among mankind. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower …” (Quran, Al Baqarah 2:224)
4th “The Sabbath was only prescribed for those (Jewish and Christian) who differed concerning it …” (Quran, An Nahl 16:124) “… Verily, the Prayer is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours (daily)” (Quran, An Nisa 4:103) “O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed for the Prayer on Friday, come to the remembrance of Allah and leave off business (and all other works)  …” (Quran, Al Jumu’ah 62:9)
5th “… your Lord has decreed … that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honor” (Quran, Al Isra 17:23)
6th “And do not kill anyone whose killing Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause …” (Quran, Al Isra 17:33)
7th “And come not near to unlawful sex. Verily, it is a Great Sin, and an Evil Way” (Quran, Al Isra 17:32)
8th “And (as for) the male thief and the female thief, (if they don’t repent for their crime then) cut off their hands as a recompense for that which they committed, a punishment by way of example from Allah” (Quran, Al Ma’idah 5:38) “… whosoever repents after his crime and does righteous good deeds (according to the Words of Allah), then verily, Allah will pardon him …” (Quran, Al Ma’idah 5:39)
9th “… conceal not the evidence for he, who hides it, surely his heart is sinful. And Allah is All-Knower of what you do.” (Quran, Al Baqarah 2:283)
10th “And wish not for the things in which Allah has made some of you to excel others …” (Quran, An Nisa 4:32)

Here the 4th Commandment from Quran is not same as the 4th one in Tâẃrah, the First Revelation. At that era, people were familiar with worshiping God in specific days (as pagan people used to do according to their religious culture). Beside this, people who began to accept Allah also became careless about worshiping Allah. So, according to their situation of circumstance, understanding, and acceptability Allah taught them to obey Saturday as a Holiday for worshiping Allah beside the daily basis worship. But later, when people began to hold the practice of worshiping Creator and understood the importance of it, then Allah taught them that, all the days are made by Allah, and we are also made to worship Allah, so we should worship Him every day in the each part of the days. Beside this, Allah commanded for Joint Prayer, so that through this people may practice and understand their brotherhood and unity in Islam (Submission to Allah).   Finally, we find that, the ten special commandments of Almighty Creator are still present in the Final Revelation (Quran) of Almighty Creator, but in the best form which is best for mankind today and forever. One point to be noted that, this Ten Commandments are not only special, but also all Commandments of Almighty Creator are special. But these Ten Commandments were special for the people of Old Revelations, and still exist in the Final Revelation. Now, let’s check some questions:

  • Don’t the Special Commandments of Allah existing uncorrupted in the Final Revelation?
  • Is the Final Revelation worst than the First Revelation?

It is sure that the answer of these questions are, NO.  

Remember Some Facts

These Special Commandments prove us that: Islam is not a newly created Religion, but the Religion that Allah gave for mankind in the beginning.

Allah has modified His Commandments and sent down as the Final Revelation according to the situation of circumstance, understanding, and acceptability of mankind.

Quran is the Fulfillment of the Commandments of Allah.
