Of Sleep and Death!

Do you know that Allah takes our souls in our sleep?

And it is His mercy and decree that He returns our souls to our bodies after having taken it during our sleep!

He tells us this spiritual-cum-scientific fact in Surah Az-Zumar of the glorious Qur’an: Continue reading

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!

The MOST Read Book, the LEAST understood Book!

Please think over, O Muslim brothers and sisters!

YasSarNalQuR'aN

Ramadhaan and Qur’an. Qur’an and Muslims. Muslims and Ramadhaan. A perfect combination and a classic equation, right?

Qur’an and understanding. Understanding and Muslims. Muslims and Qur’an. And what about this equation?

YasSarNal QuR’aN: We have made the Qur’an easy!

Allah Tabaaraka Wa Ta’aala repeats this ayah وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ four times in Surah al Qamar.

In the Qur’an, where there is repetition of an ayah, there is emphasis. There is meaning. There is a loud and clear message.

This ayah, which is profound in its message, is a crystal clear proclamation from Allah subhanahu wa Ta’aala that He has “indeed made the Qur’an easy“. Let us understand this ayah by splitting into three parts:

The Heart and the Qur’an

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem

The more important part of your ‘person’ is your inner self. This inner self the Quran calls the qalb or the ‘heart’. The heart of the Prophet  was the first recipient of the Quranic message:

Truly it has been sent down by the Lord of all the worlds, the Trustworthy Spirit has alighted with it upon your heart [O Prophet], that you may be one of the Warner … (Quran 26:192-194)

You will therefore reap the full joys and blessings of reading the Qur’an when you are able to involve your heart fully in your task.
