Sura 10
Aya 105
وَأَن أَقِم وَجهَكَ لِلدّينِ حَنيفًا وَلا تَكونَنَّ مِنَ المُشرِكينَ

Muhammad Asad

Hence, [O man,] set thy face steadfastly towards the [true] faith, turning away from all that is false,1 and be not among those who ascribe divinity to aught beside God.
  • In classical Arabic usage, and particularly in the Qur'an, the word "face" is often employed as a metonym for one's whole being because it is the face, more than any other part of the human body, that expresses man's personality (cf. surah 2, note 91).- For an explanation of the term hanif, see surah 2, note 110.
