O you who believe! When you contract a debt for a fixed period, write it down. Let a scribe write it down in justice between you. Let a scribe write it down in justice between you. Let not the scribe refuse to write as Allah [swt] has taught him so let him write. Let him who incurs the liability dictate and he must fear Allah [swt], his Lord, and diminish not anything of what he owes. But if the debtor is of poor understanding or weak or is unable to dictate for himself then let his guardian dictate in justice. And get two witnesses out of your own men. And if there are not two men, then a man and two women such as you agree for witnesses so that if one of them errs the other can remind her. And the witnesses should not refuse when they are called [for evidence]. You should not become weary to write it whether it be small or big for its fixed term that is more just with Allah [swt]; more solid as evidence and more convenient to prevent doubts among yourselves save when it is a present trade which you carry out on the spot among yourselves then there is no sin on you if you do not write it down. But take witnesses whenever you make a commercial contract. Let neither scribe nor witness suffer any harm but if you do [such harm] it would be wickedness in you. So be afraid of Allah [swt]; and Allah [swt] teaches you. And Allah [swt] is the All-Knower of each and everything.
And if you are on a journey and cannot find a scribe then let there be a pledge taken then if one of you entrust the other, let the one who is entrusted discharge his trust and let him be afraid of Allah [swt], his Lord. And conceal not the evidence for he who hides it surely his heart is sinful. And Allah [swt] is All-Knower of what you do.
Offspring, one of the other, and Allah [swt] is the All-Hearer, All-Knower.
[Remember] when the wife of ‘Imran said, “O my Lord! I have vowed to You what is in my womb to be dedicated for Your services so accept this from me. Verily You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knowing.”
And believe no one except the one who follows your religion. Say [O Muhammad (saws)], “Verily, right guidance is the Guidance of Allah [swt]”, and do not believe that anyone can receive like that which you have received except when he follows your religion, otherwise they would engage you in argument before your Lord. Say [O Muhammad (saws)], “All bounty is in the Hand of Allah [swt]; He grants to whom He wills. And Allah [swt] is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, the All-Knower.”
