[17:33] And you do not kill the life, which God has forbidden, except with the justice (allatee harrama allaha illaa bil-haqqi). And whoever has been killed unjustly, then certainly, we have given authority for his heir, while he should not exceed in the killing. Indeed, he has been helped.
[17:105] And with the truth we have revealed it (wa-bil-haqqi anzalnaahu) and with truth it has descended (wa-bil-haqqi nazala); and we have not sent you (Muhammad) except a bearer of good news and a warner.

And indeed, most of the people are surely disbelievers in meeting their Lord.

[39:5] He has created the heavens and the earth with the truth (khalaqa al-samaawaati wal-arda bil-haqqi). He rotates the night over the day, and He rotates the day over the night.

[39:41] Indeed, we have revealed through you (Muhammad) the scripture for the people with the truth (innaa anzalnaa `alayka al-kitaaba lilnnaasi bil-haqqi).

[39:69] And the earth has shone with its Lord’s light, and has been placed the record, and has been brought with the prophets and the witnesses, and has been judged between them with the truth (wa-qudiya baynahum bil-haqqi); and they will not be wronged.

[40:78] And certainly, we have sent messengers before yourself. Of them whom we have narrated through you, and of them whom we do not narrate through you.

So, when has come God’s command, has been judged with the truth (fa-idhaa jaa-a amru allahi qudiya bil-haqqi), while has lost the falsifiers then.
[42:17] God is the One who has revealed the scripture with the truth (allahu alladhee anzala al-kitaaba bil-haqqi) and the balance. And what He makes you know that the Hour is near.

[44:39] We have not created both of them (the heavens and the earth) except with the truth (maa khalaqnaahumaa illaa bil-haqqi), but most of them do not know.
[45:6] This is of God’s signs we recite it through you (Muhammad) with the truth (tilka aayaatu allahi natluuhaa `alayka bil-haqqi). So, in which hadith after God and His revelations do they believe?
[45:22] And God has created the heavens and the earth with the truth (wa-khalaqa allahu al-samaawaati wal-arda bil-haqqi), and that every soul may be recompensed for whatever it has earned, and they will not be wronged.
[45:29] This is our record speaking about you with the truth (haadhaa kitaabunaa yantiqu `alaykum bil-haqqi). Indeed, we have done to transcribe what you have done to accomplish.
[46:3] We have not created the heavens and the earth, and what is between them except with the truth (maa khalaqnaa al-samaawaati wal-arda illaa bil-haqqi), and for an appointed term. And those who have disbelieved from what they have been warned are those who turn away.
[46:34] And a day exposes those who have disbelieved to the Fire: “Has not it been this with the truth (a-laysa haadhaa bil-haqqi)?” They have said: “Yes, by our Lord.” He said, “Then taste the punishment of what you have done to disbelieve.”
[48:27] Certainly, God has fulfilled His messenger’s vision with the truth (laqad sadaqa allahu rasuulahu al-ru’yaa bil-haqqi): “Surely, you will enter the Sacred Masjid, God willing, secure having shaved your heads and shortened, not to have fear.” Thus, He has known what you do not know; thus, He has made other than that a near victory.
[50:5] Yes, they have denied with the truth (bal kadhabuu bil-haqqi) when it has come to them, so they are in a confused state.
[50:19] And the moment of death has come with the truth (wa-jaa-at sakratu al-mawti bil-haqqi); that is what you have done from it to avoid.

[64:3] He has created the heavens and the earth with the truth (khalaqa al-samaawaati wal-arda bil-haqqi), and He has designed you that He has made your best shapes, and to Him is the final return.
[103:3] Except those who have believed and have done the righteous deeds good, and have enjoined with the truth and with the patience (wa-tawaasaw bil-haqqi wa-tawaasaw bil-sabri).
God has let us know through His scripture that He has created the heavens and the earth with the truth for an appointed term and the Hour is surely coming and a day will be blown in the trumpet while He has designed us in a best shape and will compensate every soul what it has earned. There are signs around us if we can reflect, while He has made the sun a radiating light and the moon a reflecting light and He rotates the day over the night while the Hour is near.
He has revealed the scripture with the truth through Muhammad as a bearer of good news and warner confirming and consolidating the previous scripture to judge between people and their disputes. He has explained it in detail having the best explanation to worship Him being sincere in the religion while who has guided, so does for his soul and who has gone astray, so does for his soul either.
God is truthful and He has given scripture to the prophet with the truth, and the Spirit has come down with it with the truth as a guidance and good news for submitters. There was no madness in him while every community is guided with the truth. Not the entire scripture but also certain information in it – story of youths, creation of ours and animal, alternation of night and day etc. has come with the truth.
There are certain pieces of information that have been placed in the scripture with the truth related to offering a cow after lengthy conversion came from the time of Moses, a defeat of Goliath by David, the brightened faces have mercy of God, God has accepted offer from the righteous came from the story of Adam’s two sons, what are specifically forbidden for us, killing is forbidden except for the justice, God is the best Opener between the believers, judgment of David without factual, killing of sons but sparing of women came from the time of Moses and power of intercession only belongs to God.
With the truth messengers have come to us from our Lord and the truth has descended with them. It has been better for those who have believed them to guide them to inherit the Paradise for what they have done to achieve it while a day will come when there are no intercessors nor is there sent back for the disbelievers who have gone astray and have lost their souls for what they have done to disbelieve. God has sent messengers before that has been mentioned in the scripture given to Muhammad and has fulfilled his messenger’s vision to enter the Sacred Masjid with a victory.
Those who deny the truth, they mock it when it comes to them. They say liars of those who have come with the truth, even they are so wicked that they invent a lie about God, then is not Hell a best place for them for what they have earned to disbelieve as well as being the hatred of the truth? A day when the deniers will stand before their Lord will see and admit the truth but will taste the punishment for what they have done to deny the truth.
God’s judgment will take place with the truth while those whom the idol worshipers call on other than Him do not have anything that they can judge. He has reckoned with the truth and the record will speak with the truth. The records are placed as well as prophets and witnesses are brought that no soul can bear any burden nor can they be wronged. The judgment done with the truth will be ended with the praise to God, Lord of the worlds.
This review has not only established the truth giving a best explanation to suppress the falsehood but also indicating the factual that we can derive proofs from the scripture God has given us with the truth.
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless.
