(5:66:3) aqāmū had stood firmly
وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ أَقَامُوا التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنْجِيلَ وَمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْهِمْ مِنْ رَبِّهِمْ لَأَكَلُوا مِنْ فَوْقِهِمْ وَمِنْ تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِهِمْ
And if only they had upheld the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, they would have consumed from above them and from beneath their feet.1 Among them are a moderate community, but many of them – evil is that which they do.
(5:68:8) tuqīmū you stand firmly
لَسْتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَيْءٍ حَتَّىٰ تُقِيمُوا التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنْجِيلَ
Say, “O People of the Scripture, you are on nothing until you uphold the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord ” And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.
(7:29:5) wa-aqīmū and set
وَأَقِيمُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ عِنْدَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وَادْعُوهُ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ
Say, “My Lord has ordered justice and that you direct yourselves at every place of prostration, and invoke Him, sincere to Him in religion.” Just as He originated you, you will return
(10:105:2) aqim Direct
وَأَنْ أَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا وَلَا تَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ
And ‘Direct yourself toward the religion, inclining to truth, and never be of those who associate others with Allah;
(11:112:1) fa-is’taqim So stand firm
فَاسْتَقِمْ كَمَا أُمِرْتَ وَمَنْ تَابَ مَعَكَ وَلَا تَطْغَوْ
So, remain on a right course as you have been commanded, and those who have turned back with you, and do not transgress. Indeed, He is Seeing of what you do.
(18:105:10) nuqīmu We will assign
فَحَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فَلَا نُقِيمُ لَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَزْنًا
Those are the ones who disbelieve in the verses of their Lord and in meeting Him, so their deeds have become worthless; and We will not assign to them on the Day of Resurrection any weight
(30:30:1) fa-aqim So set
فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا
So, direct yourself toward the religion, inclining to truth. the fiṭrah1 of Allah upon which He has created people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah.2 That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.
(30:43:1) fa-aqim So set
فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ الْقَيِّمِ
So direct yourself toward the correct religion before a Day comes from Allah of which there is no repelling. That Day, they will be divided.
(41:30:7) is’taqāmū stand firm
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَ
Indeed, those who have said, “Our Lord is Allah” and then remained on a right course – the angels will descend upon them, “Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised.
(42:13:19) aqīmū establish
أَنْ أَقِيمُوا الدِّينَ وَلَا تَتَفَرَّقُوا فِيهِ
He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus – to establish the DEEN and not be divided therein. Difficult for those who associate others with Allah is that to which you invite them. Allah chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides to Himself whoever turns back.
(42:15:3) wa-is’taqim and stand firm
فَلِذَٰلِكَ فَادْعُ وَاسْتَقِمْ كَمَا أُمِرْتَ
(46:13:7) is’taqāmū remain firm
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا فَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ
(72:16:2) is’taqāmū they had remained
وَأَنْ لَوِ اسْتَقَامُوا عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ لَأَسْقَيْنَاهُمْ مَاءً غَدَقًا
(81:28:5) yastaqīma take a straight way
لِمَنْ شَاءَ مِنْكُمْ أَنْ يَسْتَقِي
(55:9:1) wa-aqīmū And establish
وَأَقِيمُوا الْوَزْنَ بِالْقِسْطِ وَلَا تُخْسِرُوا الْمِيزَانَ
And establish weight in justice and do not make deficient the balance.
(65:2:13) wa-aqīmū and establish
وَأَشْهِدُوا ذَوَيْ عَدْلٍ مِنْكُمْ وَأَقِيمُوا الشَّهَادَةَ لِلَّهِ
And when they have fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or part with them according to acceptable terms. And bring to witness two just men from among you and establish the testimony for Allah. That is instructed to whoever should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out
From these above verses where Allah commanded us by using the word
“Aqim” “فَأَقِمْ ”;
We find ” aqimus Salat “وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ” occurred almost 39 times.
And “aqim” followed by other words are as follows:
Aqimu taorah and Injil “أَقَامُوا التَّوْرَاةَ” Occurred 2 times
Aqimu wazuhuHakum “وَأَقِيمُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ” Occurred 1 times
Aqimu Deen “أَقِيمُوا الدِّينَ” or ”Aqimu Wazahaka Liddeeni أَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ” Occurred 4 times
10:105; 30:30; 30:43; 42:13;
Aqimu Wajna “وَأَقِيمُوا الْوَزْنَ” Occurred 1 time
Aqimu Shahada “ وَأَقِيمُوا الشَّهَادَةَ” Occurred 1 times
So, besides Aqim Salah, we have to Aqim “Torah and Injeel”5:66,68; “Deen”; and “testimony/acceptance” Of Allah 65:2. And Allah will Aqim “الْوَزْنَ بِالْقِسْطِ” accurate measure with fairness 55:9.
