Do not emulate the Jews!!

Note: This is the second post on the series Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu, alhamdulillah.

In the first post I discussed the last verse first. That is, the ayah of Surah At-Tahreem discussed in the first post  is the last verse in the Qur’an as far as the verses commencing with Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu is concerned.

Today I would like to discuss on Ayah No. 104 of Surah al Baqarah which is the first ayah in the Qur’an to commence with the phrase, “Yaaa Ayyuhal Lazeena Aamanu”.

The king who was greatest oppressor would not leave this youth. How dare someone kills a man of the ruler’s clan. He  orders that the ‘killer’ be arrested and brought in chains.  Continue reading

Believers as defined in Surah Al Mu’minoon

By Sheik Jamal Ed-Din Zarabozo

In the Qur’an, Almighty Allah describes the believers “Al-Mu’minun” with many characteristics. At the beginning of Surat Al-Mu’minun some of these great attributes are mentioned that draw a vivid picture of the believers and their reward. In this article the writer is discussing only three of these attributes digressing into the deeper meanings of the verses that portrait a lucid picture of the believers.

Distinguishing Attributes of Unique Individuals

One of Almighty Allah’s great miracles that He bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was aiding him with an elite community of believers“Mu’minun” who fully understood the meaning of faith. The deeds of the early Qur’anic generation of believers were governed by their righteous belief and virtuous attributes.
