Most Suitable, Most Precise, Most Upright….Subhanallaah!

Qur’an uses rich words that are mind-boggling and overwhelming. Those that create a strong and vivid impression in the minds of the readers. Qur’anic vocabulary is expressively impressive and impressively expressive.

However, the purpose of the Qur’an is not to weave rich tapestry leading to intellectual exercises and literary debates on the part of the readers but the purpose is to convey the truth in the most miraculous a manner. So the Qur’an, which is a miracle in human language, serves to guide mankind in all spheres of life.

Aayatul Kursi: Greatest Ayah of the Qur’an

The greatest ayah of the Qur’an is undoubtedly the Ayah No. 255 of Surah al Baqarah, popularly known as the Aayatul Kursi

‘Do you know which Ayah in Allah’s Book is greatest’, asked the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, and then showed his approval when he was told that this was Aayatul-Kursi, reports Ubayy Ibn Ka’b (Muslim).

About reciting the Aayatul Kursi while going to bed, the Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, confirmed that ‘a protector from Allah will then remain over you, and Satan will not come near you, until the morning’, reports Abu Hurayrah in a long Hadeeth about his encounter with Satan (Bukhari – Refer full Text of this Hadeeth here)

Some resources are presented here for you to download and learn further, Inshaa’Allah. Even if you know many things already, it is still advisable to go through to refresh your knowledge, nay your emaan! 🙂 Continue reading

New e-book on ‘Embryology in the Qur’an’

Dear sisters and brothers, Assalamu Alaikum. Bismillah..

Whenever I upload any e-book it will be done directly in the E-book page. Of late I felt that most of the visitors normally don’t go to that page.

So I have made it a point that from now onwards, Insha’Allah, whenever I upload any e-book, I will put it as a separate post. This is to make things easier for the blog visitors 🙂 Continue reading

“Alhamdulillah” – A Linguistic Miracle of the Qur’an

Writing about the literary dimension of the Qur’an for an audience that may or may not have background in Arabic grammar and rhetoric can be rather challenging. I’m going to attempt to navigate around technical lingo as much as possible. Building a basic familiarity with the subject is my goal, not presenting it in a sophisticated fashion.

The words  الحمد لله AlHamdu Lillah are most commonly uttered from Muslim lips around the world. After the basmalah (the tag name used for BISMILLAHI ALRAHMANI ALRAHEEMI),  it is the first statement mentioned in the opening Surah, al-Fatiha. One way to explore the beauty, precision , and thought provoking eloquence of the Qur’an’s words is to explore the very choice of each word. Arabic is a rich language full of terms similar in meaning. Continue reading
