(101)  In how many days did Allah create the earth?
Two Days.  But it's duration might not be the same as two days we spend on earth.  That duration is only known to Allah alone.  (Refer verse 41:9).

(102)  In how many days did Allah ordain the seven heavens?
Two Days. (Refer verse 41:12).

(103)  In how many days did Allah measure the "sustenance" of the earth?
Four Days.  (Refer verse 41:10).

(104)   Which day is referred to in the Noble Quran as "a day of mutual disillusion."?
This will be the Day of Assembling or the Day of Judgment.  Refer 64:9.

(105)  How were the people of Aad punished?
By a "raging wind."   Probably refers to a hurricane or tornado.  Refer verse 41:16.

(106)  How does Allah communicate with a mortal (i.e. Prophets / Messengers)?
Either by revelation or from behind a veil or by revelation sent through a messenger (i.e. Angel Gabriel as was revealed the Quran).  Refer verse 42:51.

(107)  Who was Essa, son of Maryam?
A slave of Allah and a prophet.

(108)  What does "smoke" in Surah Ad-Dukhan, verse 44:10, refer to?
It refers to the Last Day.

(109)   What does the Quran refer to as "The food of the sinner" in Hellfire?
The reference is to the tree of Zaqqum (referring to its distasteful fruit, verse 44:44).

(110)   Did the Prophet (pbuh) know the future?
No, neither Prophet Muhammed nor any of his predecessors (peace be on them all) knew the future.  Future is known to Allah Almighty alone.

(111)   Will Paradise and Hellfire, each have a single set of reward and punishment for people who go either to Paradise or to Hellfire?
No, there will be grades of rewards and punishments in Paradise and Hellfire, respectively, because some good people maybe better than other good people.  And similarly some disobedient people might be still worse than other disobedient ones.  Thus, accordingly they will be repaid in both Paradise and Hellfire.  Refer to verses 3:163 and 46:19.

(112)   How many times is Prophet Muhammad's name mentioned in the Quran?
"Muhammad" is mentioned 4 times and "Ahmed" is mentioned once.
Refer Verses: 3:144,  33:40,  47:2,  48:29  and  61:6 in which "Praised One" means "Ahmed." 

(113)   Will a person who does good deeds in earthly life but does not believe in Allah be forgiven in the Hereafter?
No.  Good deeds of such a person will be rendered fruitless in the Hereafter and they will dwell in Hell.  Belief in Monotheism (Tawheed) is the first indispensable requirement for acquiring forgiveness in the Hereafter.  There are plenty of verses throughout the Quran that make this point crystal clear. 

(114)   In Surah Al-Fath (Victory) what does victory refer to?
It refers to the success of the Truce of Hudaybiyah in the 6th year of Hijrah.
Refer to verse 48:24 and 48:27.

(115)  What good news did the honored guests (angels) of Prophet Abraham bring to him?
The news of the birth of a son, Isaac.  (Ref. V.51:28).

(116)  What was the reaction of Prophet Abraham's wife when the angels gave tehnews to Abraham of the birth of a son?
She was very surprised as she was very old by then.  (Ref. V.51:29).

(117)  Which tree is close to Paradise?
The lote tree.  (Refer V.53:14-15)

(118)   When the Prophet saw Angel Gabriel, where and how did the angel appear?
The Prophet saw the angel on the uppermost horizon and then the angel drew close, coming down from the horizon.  (Refer V. 53:7-8).
[The reason this question is put is because the Hadith has spread plenty of lies, making up its own tales how the Prophet saw the angel when the Divine Revelation first came to him.  All that must be discarded.  Only the one from the Noble Quran v.53:7-8 is the correct one.]

(119)   What is referred in the Quran as "one of the greater revelations" of Allah seen by the Prophet?
The journey of Meraj in which also the Prophet again saw the angel.  (Refer v.53: and verses that precede it).

(120)   Is the intercession of all angels allowed in the presence of Allah?
NO, not at all.  Allah only allows whoever He chooses to intercede and speak to Him.  (V.53:26).

(121)   Does the Quran tell us to stay away from the company of those who disbelieve or those who never think of Allah?
YES.  (Refer V. 53:29, this is one of the many which confirms this point).

(122)   Does Allah appreciate those who brag about their piety?
NO, never.  (Refer V. 53:32).

(123)   What is a believer's goal in life?
Believer's goal is Allah.  (Refer V. 53:43).

(124)  Can anyone take up the burden of another person's sins?
NO, never.  (V. 53:38).

(125)   What was the name of the village of Prophet Lot?
Some presume it was Al-Mutafikah but not confirmed.  This name is mentioned in V. 53:53.  But whether it refers to the village of Lot is only known to Allah.

(126)   How did Allah save Prophet Noah from the flood?
By carrying him upon a plant which was visible only to Allah.  (Refer V. 54:13-14)
(In my opinion this means that Prophet Noah walked upon a plank on the water, a special help from Allah not visible to others, till Noah reached the arc.  And Allah knows best).

(127)   What will mankind and jinn be met with if they try to penetrate those regions o the heavens and the earth without the sanction of Allah?
There will be sent against them "heat of fire and flash of brass" as asserted in the Noble Quran.  (Ref. V.55:35).

(128)   In Surah Ar-Rehman (Chapter 55), to whom is the oft repeated verse "Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny?"  addressed to?
It's believed to be addressed to human beings and the jinn.

(129)   Some tafsir weiters assume that the description of the garden between verses 46 to 76 in Surah Ar-Rehman refers to the later conquests of the Muslims i.e. Egypt, Syria, Mesopotamia and Persia.  Is that correct?
No, such a tafsir does not sound correct at all.  Description of the garden throughout Surah Rehman is clearly a reference to Paradise only.

(130)   What will be the 3 categories of people on the Day of Judgment?
1)  Those on the right hand
2)  Those on the left hand
3)  The foremost in the race
The foremost in the race and those on the right hand will be the dwellers of Paradise.  Those on the left hand will be the sinful, the erring, who will swell in Hellfire.  (Ref. V. 56:7-55).

(131)   What will be the food of the dwellers of Hellfire?
The product of the tree of Zaqqum and boiling water.  (Ref. V. 56:52-54).

(132)  What was the prayer of Prophet Moses (pbuh) when he arrived in Midian after escaping from Pharaoh's folks?
"My Lord! I am needy of whatever good Thou sendest down for me."    (28:24)

(133)   If Satan whispers to misguide you, what must you do?
Seek refuge in Allah.  Refer to Verse 41:36.

(134)   As per Quranic principles, is there any compulsion in religion?
NO, not at all.  Refer to Verse 2:256, one out of many more similar verses.

(135)   Is any human being tasked with greater burden than they can bear?
NO, they are not.  Reference: "Allah tasketh not a soul beyond its scope. For it (is only) that which it hath earned, and against it (only) that which it hath deserved."  (2:286).

(136)   Does the Noble Quran mention the human life cycle of ignorance > knowledge >ignorance again referring to childhood > adulthood >frail old age?
Yes the Noble Quran does mention of this cycle.  Quoting one such Verse: "And Allah createth you, then causeth you to die, and among you is he who is brought back to the most abject stage of life, so that he knoweth nothing after (having had) knowledge. Lo! Allah is Knower, Powerful."   (16:70).

(137)   What was the prayer of Prophet Yusuf (Josef) after he received his parents in Egypt?
"Creator of the heavens and the earth! Thou art my Protecting Friend in the world and the Hereafter. Make me to die submissive (unto Thee), and join me to the righteous."  (12:101).

(138)   Quote a Verse from the Noble Quran that plainly asserts that Allah chooses to ordain the fate of people according to the way they lead their lives.
"Lo! Allah changeth not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts;"   (13:11).

(139)   What about those who offer prayers but yet are heedless of their prayers?
Allah's answer to them is: "Ah, woe unto worshippers  Who are heedless of their prayer;  Who would be seen (at worship)   Yet refuse small kindnesses!"   (107:4-7).

(140)   Who is better in the Sight of Allah, a person who gives charity and boasts about it or a person who is unable to give charity and excuses himself / herself humbly?
The latter is better in the Sight of Allah.  Refer to the following Verse: "A kind word with forgiveness is better than almsgiving followed by injury. Allah is Absolute, Clement."  (2:263).

(141)   What about those who invent a lie about Allah?
Allah has plainly called that a "flagrant sin."  Reference: "See, how they invent lies about Allah! That of itself is flagrant sin."  (4:50).

(142)   How much will a Day with Allah be according to earthly calculations?
It will be equivalent to a thousand years.  Reference: "but lo! a Day with Allah is as a thousand years of what ye reckon."   (22:47).

(143)   Will offering prayers benefit humankind if the very thought of Allah is absent from their hearts in their daily lives?
No, it won't.  Reference:  "Lo! worship preserveth from lewdness and iniquity, but verily remembrance of Allah is more important. And Allah knoweth what ye do."   (29:45).  This Verse clearly signifies that the very thought of Allah, the One and Only, is the most important of all to begin with.

(144)   Can one person redeem the sins of another with his or her own merits?
No, never.  Reference: "He who groweth (in goodness), groweth only for himself, (he cannot by his merit redeem others). Unto Allah is the journeying."   (35:18).

(145)   How should we respond to the deniers?
"And if they deny thee, say: Unto me my work, and unto you your work. Ye are innocent of what I do, and I am innocent of what ye do."   (10:41).

(146)   Does the Noble Quran state that animals are as much a creation of Allah as humans?
Yes, the Noble Quran does state that.  Reference: "There is not an animal in the earth, nor a flying creature flying on two wings, but they are peoples like unto you. We have neglected nothing in the Book (of Our decrees). Then unto their Lord they will be gathered."  (6:38).

(147)   Is good conduct essential with belief in Allah?
Yes, it's definitely essential.  Quoting one Verse out of many similar ones:  "Those who believe and obscure not their belief by wrongdoing, theirs is safety; and they are rightly guided."   (6:82).   There are some unthinking so-called Muslims who think as long as you believe in Allah, your deeds are not important.  Totally wrong concept.  Belief in Monotheism (Tawheed) and good deeds go together.  That's the reason why Islam (Noble Quran) is recognized not just as 'religion' but as a complete code of life.  The deeds of our life contribute to the strength of our belief.

(148)   Who are the people whom Allah chooses for granting His guidance?
Those who believe in Him and turn toward Him.  Reference:  "Say: Lo! Allah sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth unto Himself all who turn (unto Him), Who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest!"   (13:27-28)

(149)   Quote any one Verse which clearly asserts that the Quran is perfect and complete.
"This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam."  (5:3)

(150)   Quote the most famous Verse in which Allah expresses His appreciation for the steadfast.
"Inn Allahe mais sabireen."  (2:153).  Translation: "Allah is with the steadfast."  OR  "Allah is with those who patiently persevere."  

(151)   Which is the Verse that is most commonly recited at the news of someone's death and is also a good Zikr for all times and for everyone?
"Inna lilahe wa inna elahe rajoon."  (2:156).   Translation:  "Lo! we are Allah's and lo! unto Him we are returning."  OR "Lo we belong to Allah and lo unto Him we are returning." [2:156].

(152)   What is the only Furqan or Criterion for judgment for believers?
It is the Noble Quran alone.  (Ref. Verse 25:1).

(153)   Among Muslims of Al-Medinah at the time of the Prophet (S) and Muslims of Arabia after the conquest of Makkah, which group of Muslims are higher in piety in the Sight of Allah?
Those Muslims who helped the Prophet (S) and fought before the conquest of Makkah are higher in the rank of piety in the Sight of Allah.  (Ref. Verse 57:10).

(154)   What does the term "measure" and "the Balance" in the Noble Quran refer to with regard to creation of the earth?
It refers to the concept of justice and the laws made by Allah Almighty.

(155)   Did Allah ever ordain monasticism for the Christians?
NO, never.  Monasticism is something which the Christians imposed upon themselves for which Allah never gave them any warrant.

-  Feeding 60 needy ones

(157)   As an evidence of the power of the Noble Quran, what would happen if it was to descend upon a mountain?
If it descended upon a mountain, the mountain would have been "humbled, rent asunder by the fear of Allah."  (Refer verse 59:21).

(158)   Does the Noble Quran mention of Friday (Jumm'ah) congregation prayers?
Yes it does.  (Refer V.62:9).

(159)   With what name did Essa (son of Maryam) mention of Prophet Muhammed as the future Prophet?
He mentioned Prophet Muhammed as the "Praised One" or "Ahmed."  (Refer V.61:6).

(160)   Do the inner intentions of people matter?
Yes, that matters a lot.  Reference V.67:13  which states that whether you keep your opinion secret or proclaim it, Allah know it.  This refers that if your intent is bad, He will judge you according to it because He knows it.

(161)   Who were the two righteous slaves of Allah whose wives were disobedient and thus earned the wrath of Allah?
They were the wives of Noah and Lot.  Verse 66:10.

(162)   Was Pharaoh's wife a believer or disbeliever?
She was obviously a believer.  Refer to V.66:11.

(164)  Before Allah created the heavens, how did it look?
It was "smoke."  The reference might be to some gaseous matter.  (Refer verse 41:11).
