Critical Thinking: Best Tribute to Prophet Ibraheem

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

These are the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah. And we all know that Hajj is connected with the life and teachings of Prophet Ibraheem alaihis salam.

Unlocking the Locked Hearts

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

In Surah Muhammad there is this thinking ayah:

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا

The meaning of this ayah attracts my attention. It is normally translated as follows:

“Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an, or are there locks upon [their] hearts?” [Surah Muhammad 47: 24

But there is more to the meaning than this translation.  Continue reading
