the "6666 verses" myth was likely introduced to scare off Christians from looking into Islam, by associating the Quran with the devil's number. The total number of Ayats in the Quran is around 6,236. The actual number may vary depending on what is counted as a complete Ayat. and Allah knows best.

The question is unclear to me. It would be better if you pointed out: accodring which count you want the number of ayat? Because only for a few surahs (al-Mulk, and al-Fatiha) there is a fix number of ayat known (from ahadith, check the links) therefore the number differs between the different counts, which are a result of ijtihad of the sahaba and the ...

There are ahadeeth mentioning it's greatness, but I do not know any Ahadeeth which explicitly mentions what makes it great or important. But it is great because it encompasses all seven Usool of Allah names and attributes. It is important because it is one of the reasons of entering Jannah: من قرأ آية الكرسي دبر كل صلاة لم يمنعه من دخول الجنة إلا الموت ...

This depends who you ask. Obviously, riba is haram, but what is the definition of 'riba'? Does it apply to bank interest? While Muslims agree that riba is prohibited, there is disagreement over what it is... there is also disagreement over whether it is a major sin and against sharia (Islamic law), or simply discouraged (makruh). -- Wikipedia There's ...

Here a quote from a summary of tafsir ibn Kathir: This is the parable Allah makes of the idolators, those who worship others besides Him and attribute partners to Him, while at the same time admitting that these so-called partners -- idols and false gods -- are enslaved to and belong to Him. In their Talbiyah (during Hajj and 'Umrah they used to say, "At ...

In his tafsir of verse (73:20) imam al-Qurtobi has quoted some fiqh views on the necessary amount to recite (My own translation take it carefully): ... فاقرؤوا ما تيسر من القرآن ، فاقرؤوا ما تيسر منه محمول على ظاهره من القراءة في الصلاة فاختلف العلماء في قدر ما يلزمه أن يقرأ به في الصلاة ; فقال مالك والشافعي : فاتحة الكتاب لا يجزئ العدول عنها ، ولا ...

By name, as the answer and comment above indicate, it was only Zaid (RA). Generally, all of them in this verse: Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces ...

Yes zaid is the one mentioned in Quran. Have a read at this ayah **وَإِذْ تَقُولُ لِلَّذِي أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِ أَمْسِكْ عَلَيْكَ زَوْجَكَ وَاتَّقِ اللَّهَ وَتُخْفِي فِي نَفْسِكَ مَا اللَّهُ مُبْدِيهِ وَتَخْشَى النَّاسَ وَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخْشَاهُ ۖ فَلَمَّا قَضَىٰ *زَيْدٌ مِّنْهَا وَطَرًا زَوَّجْنَاكَهَا لِكَيْ لَا ...

Assalamu Alaykum brothers and sisters. I just counted it, and I got 6236. Allah and Allah's messenger knows best.

The difference between the total of ayahs is due to some people count the Starting Bismillah in start of every Surah as a separate verse and others just count it once. This islamword.net link has a complete statistic gathered at one place. From the page Total No. of Verses 6236

Due to the high names of Allah in this ayah, the name Ayatul Kursi was taken by people in the Prophet's lifetime. And nobody is known accurately who named this ayah. From the book Tafsir Al-Mizan: This verse was named "the verse of the Chair(Ayatul Kursi)" in the early period of Islam during the lifetime of the Prophet; and was thus described by the ...

I think most of the time the first number indicates the number of the Surah, the second number indicates the number of the verse, i.e. Qur'an[2:3] = Surat Al-Baqarah, verse number 3.

There's nothing wrong with deleting a digital file containing Qur'an or hadith because the intention and the impressions are not to sacrilege them. Unlike the case in putting stuff with Qur'anic content in garbage, the digital content cannot also become exposed or taken to other places or situations where sacrilege could be possible.

1.There is nothing in this verse implying that homosexuality will be happening in the Heaven.

Just to answer your questions roughly under the assumption that you will pray as fadd (alone): Is it permissible to read in prayer just part of a Surah which I have memorized from the Quran so I can use it as a repetition? Yes it is permissible, however you should be aware that reciting with the Qur'an in hand is hardly allowed (at least frowned upon) ...

Note that the problem with a revelation in a dream is that while a dream may be a kind of revelation we don't have any knowledge of any verse of the Quran revealed this way and could only know about it if our Messenger told us about it. However he has been shown many signs of things which would happen later before they happened, but as far as I understood OP'...

The last part of Surah Nisa' Ayat 83 has a similar meaning to what you have quoted: And when there comes to them information about [public] security or fear, they spread it around. But if they had referred it back to the Messenger or to those of authority among them, then the ones who [can] draw correct conclusions from it would have known about ...

There are many references which make it clear that receiving interest in any form is prohibited in Islam. Not using force to earn interest or relying on interest as a source of income do not make interest permissible. Surah Al-baqarah verse no.275-276: Those who devour usury will not stand except as stands one whom the Satan by his touch has driven to ...

Asalam o AlieKum : This story is mentioned in the Quran in SURAH TAUBA CH: 9 V Allah says:� “If you will not aid him (the Prophet), Allah certainly aided him when those who disbelieved expelled him; he (the Prophet) had no more than him, him being the second of the two (i.e. Abu Bakr), when they were both in the cave, when he (the Prophet) said to his ...
