Medical References at the Shadows of Surah al Kahf

‘The Medical Miracles of the Qur’an’ is a resourceful book authored by Dr. Sharif Kaf al Ghazal, and published by The Islamic Foundation, Leicester.

I am sharing a beautiful description about sleep, hearing and related points. The author discusses about the medical aspects from the story of the Ashaab al Kahf, the Sleepers of the Cave, from the amazing Surah al Kahf.  

Read, enjoy and glorify Allah for revealing the glorious Qur’an for the welfare of mankind.  Continue reading

“Woe to those who read them without reflection”

“so woe to those who read them without reflecting upon them”. This statement which is part of a Sahih Hadeeth should serve as a warning to all those who read the glorious Qur’an without reflecting upon its verses or pondering over them.

While we Muslims read a lot from the Book of Allah in the blessed month of Ramadhaan, I pray to Almighty Allah to shower upon us the grace of wisdom to understand and reflect over the teachings of His glorious and gracious Book. Aameen.

The more you reflect, the closer you get!

Note: Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah. I am re-posting this with the intention to spread the word that Qur’an should be read with understanding. Baarakallahu Feekum.

YasSarNalQuR'aN

There are many “religious” books available in the spiritual supermarkets of the world. How many of them tell their readers or followers to ponder and reflect over their teachings?

Do you know that there are some wonderful religious books – so “wonderful” that you don’t need a brain to understand!

The Qur’an never makes its readers mentally-challenged! Alhamdulillaah.

The Qur’an is unique. It tells you to think. It makes you to think.

“Qur’an is Made Easy”

Last Friday this was the theme of the Friday Sermon in the UAE.

Even though, every week, I give the links to download the Jumu’ah Khutbahs, I felt like including this as a separate post for the benefit of wider audience. Read on, Inshaaallah.

The miracle in ‘Aayah’

This aayah enchants me a lot: سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ

“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth.” (Surah Fussilat 41: 53)

And this aayah:

هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ

“It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom – although they were before in clear error”. (Surah al Jumu’ah 62: 2)

The myriad of meanings that the word ‘aayah’ connotes is miraculous indeed.

The verses of the Qur’an are in fact the signs of understanding for men of understanding!

Wa Ma Tawfeeqee il-laah bil-laah

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

In today’s society, success seems to have many “fathers”. Failure is an orphan. Nobody wants to own it!

You might have heard people bragging: ‘Your success is because of me!’ ‘You got promoted because of my recommendation!’ ‘Without me, you’ll be nowhere!’ ‘Your accomplishment is due to my favour!’ ‘No, it’s not because of him, its only because of me, you achieved success!’!!

A true Muslim understands the hollowness of such a bragging!  Continue reading

An international patent for Quranic eye drops !

The miracle of the Qur’an……Subhanallaah! 

  • Inspired by the shirt of Yousof  (Joseph), an Egyptian Muslim scientist, unprecedently, managed to manufacture an eye drop to treat the cataract. How?

  • Allah the Almighty describes Jacob (Yaqoob alaihis salam)

  • And he turned away from them, and said, ‘Ah, how great is my grief for Joseph.’  And his eyes turned white because of the sorrow that he chocked within him.” (12: 84)

The Book that Shaped the World


This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah” (Al-Baqarah, 2:2)

Has anybody ever come across a book that contains a preface where its author mentions its infallibility from any single error? Has anyone ever heard of any author who talks with such confidence and authority? This is the Qur’an; it was revealed to one human being named Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and its Author is Allah, the Lord and Sustainer of the Universe. Continue reading

Qur’an: The Eternal Truth

The Prophet Moses, born in Egypt in the 15th century B.C., was chosen by God to be His messenger. In those days, Egypt was under the dynastic rule of the Pharaohs, who were idolaters. The Prophet Moses encountered two of the kings of this dynasty: one was appointed to be his guardian by God, while the other was one with whom he came into confrontation during his missionary struggle.

The Most Widely Read Book in the World

The Qur’an is the Book of Allah (God) that was revealed in Arabic to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) over a period of twenty-three years. He dictated it to his followers as he received it from the Angel Jibril (Gabriel), and they wrote it down on whatever materials were available. The Prophet and many of his followers memorized it as it was revealed.

The Qur’an consists of 114 surahs (sometimes called chapters) of various lengths, from 3 to 286 verses. The verses were revealed a few at a time and not in their present order but were placed in their position by the Prophet in accordance to instructions from the Angel Jibril.
