Allah revealed the Qur'an in Arabic, not English. Translations of the Qur'an are not the Qur'an. At best, they're interpretations. As interpretations, each translator may or may not take different tacks as to how best to interpret the divine words: Some go strictly literal, word for word. Some will attempt to capture the implied meaning, often supplemented ...

By "lost" Imam Malik means "gone" i.e. "abrogated." He doesn't mean someone "misplaced" it which is why we no longer have it. Basically, what Imam Malik said is that there were narrations from the Sahabah that Surah Tawbah used to be as long as Surah Baqarah. And he used this as evidence (because Surah Tawbah isn't ...

Essentially, it appears what the scholar said is correct, and it is an opinion of early scholars i.e. that the verse states those who disbelieve in Islam disbelieve it in the presence of evidence and those who believe it believe because of evidence (if I understood you correctly). However, another opinion of what the verse means exists which early scholars ...

You shouldn't confuse grammatical masculine and feminine with actual male and female. For example, the sun is feminine in Arabic but it obviously isn't female. In this verse, the هٖ (meaning "his" in a literal sense) in بُطُوۡنِهٖ ("his bellies" in a literal sense) refers to the word "الۡاَنۡعَامِ" (meaning "cattle"). ...

God did create all beings and all events. In that verse, we are seeking refuge from the evil that comes from the beings and things God created. Allah says: Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is, over all things, Disposer of affairs. (39:62) In the verse: From the evil of [i.e. coming from] that [i.e. the beings and things] which He created".

Hypocrisy is of various types. نفاق الأكبر is related to beliefs. A hypocrite of this type is a disbeliever at heart but pretends to be a Muslim in order to deceive people. It is a type of Kufr and is the one which is mentioned in the Quran. These would remain in hell forever as the Quran explicitly states that in various verses. They are not Muslims. نفاق ...

There is another avenue of proving that the original Torah doesn't exist. Simply, showing where Allah corrects the current Bible and Gospel. In the Bible, Eve was tempted by the serpent and ate the fruit: 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like ...

Peace be unto you. It is clear that you are not a Muslim, and - from the tone you used in posing your question - you might even be a little bit hostile to Islam and to Muslims. I wonder if that hostility is going to render you unable to give my answer a fair hearing. Allah knows best. I entrust this affair to Allah as I offer you my answer to your question.....

To simplify let us look at that specific part of the verse alone with a simple word by word translation: وَأَضَلَّهُ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ And Allah caused him to go astray upon knowledge The question is whether the "upon knowledge" describes "Allah" or describes "him." So, the two options are: And Allah with Allah's ...

How do we distinguish verb tenses in Quran? This can be done similarly as you would distinguish verb tenses outside the qur'an in any other language: this requires knowledge about the language itself, its grammar, its conjugation beside a good vocabulary and understanding (by practicing etc.) the language. Here the verb is: عاد which means to return. Note ...

The Day of Judgement will occur on another "earth" that Allah will create replacing this Earth. Allah says: [It will be] on the Day the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well], and all creatures will come out before Allah, the One, the Prevailing. (14:48)

You can find PDFs and audio recordings of the 10 qiraat on this website: IslamWeb However, note that I have found mistakes in their PDFs. It is always better to refer to an actual audio recitation. You can also look at this mushaf which is written in the riwayah of Hafs from Aasim, and the other recitations are noted on the side: https://archive.org/details/...

The hadith has been criticized because of the weakness of عبد الله بن سلمة see Al-Arnaa’oot and Al-Albani. Ibn Kathir postulated that a mix-up has happened between the miracles and the ten commandments.

I found at least two interpretations of the hadith that are at least sensible. Obviously, there is discussion regarding the authenticity of the hadith. However, I will assume for a moment that the hadith is authentic. Firstly, it could be that the hadith omits a part of the conversation. Basically, like this: So they went to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) to ...

What you may mean is a rather more general hadith about afflicted people The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever sees an afflicted person then says: ‘All praise is due to Allah who saved me from that which He has afflicted you with, and blessed me greatly over many of those whom He has created, (Al-ḥamdulillāhi alladhī āfānī mimmabtalāka bihī wa faḍḍalanī ...
