Here is another similar ayah: [6:68] When you encounter those who gossip about Our revelations, turn away from them, until they engage in another topic. But should Satan make you forget, do not sit after the recollection with the wicked people. And continuing: The righteous are in no way accountable for them; it is only a reminder, that they may be ...

The ayah you're referring to is probably An-Nisa' 140: وقد نزل عليكم في الكتاب أن إذا سمعتم آيات الله يكفر بها ويستهزأ بها فلا تقعدوا معهم حتى يخوضوا في حديث غيره إنكم إذا مثلهم إن الله جامع المنافقين والكافرين في جهنم جميعا And it has already come down to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah, they are denied and ridiculed; so do ...

It is not compulsory or needed to read Qur'an on mobiles with wudu or purity of menses as scholars classify the Qur'an on mobiles (soft copies) to not be related to the rules that apply to the written Qur'an (hard copy).

No both the qur'an and sunnah actually emphasize only on the fact that water existed before the creation of the heavens and earth. Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said: In the report of Ishaaq ibn Raahawayh it says “and the Throne is over the water.” The apparent meaning is that it was like that when the Prophet (blessings and peace of ...

Making vows in Islam so they are to be fulfilled if Allah answered what you asked from Him in a Du'a, is permitted only if the vows are about any act of worship or obedience to Allah that are not obligatory. Praying the five prayers or fasting in Ramadan are both obligatory worshipping while praying extra Rakat is not. On the other hand, the vows that are to ...

Qur'an is the word of Allah (ﷻ) and it is what He decides it to be. If He decides to abrogate a portion, that doesn't mean that portion is "missing" because He does not intend it to be part of the Book ultimately. So it doesn't contradict preservation nor does it count as corruption. Once the Qur'an was all revealed and Angel Jibra'il (peace be upon him) ...

And do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you.

There are no specific names for the Ajza' in Qur'an. Actually, the reciters and learners of Qur'an came up with some names to make the referencing to Suwar (chapters) easier and more memorizable than numbers. Names like (they are not standardly written): Tabarak تبارك, Qad Sami' قد سمع, Al-Tharyat الذاريات, Amma عم, and Al-Ahqaf الأحقاف. Some of them are ...

Surah 61:14 (Salih) says there were two factions in Israel: (a) Israelites those who believed (b) Israelites who did not believe.

It depends. If you were to go out to (public) places where non-Mahram would see you, then it is Haram to put anything on your lips that would change their natural color or any kind of makeup except those used for lightening the skin without harming or damaging it (again lightening and not changing its original color). It is Haram since makeup makes women ...

Reciting silently has two meanings in the prayer: For a male recitor it means to recite in a manner that you move your lips, and only you and a person which is close to you may hear your recitation. For a female recitor it means that you move your lips, but none can hear you. As a loud recitation for a woman can't be louder than silent recitation of a man. ...

Qur'an and Adhkar: When reciting the Qur'an out of the prayer, it is is more favorably in Islam to read it with Tarteel which you wouldn't be able to do in whispering, and it is better to be done in a moderate voice.

bismillahir-rahmanir-rahim, Nutfah has often been understood and translated as sperm-drop, although this is not necessarily the meaning of nutfah, but just drop. Plus the meaning of the word amshaj is mixed, so "nutfatin amshajin" would be a mixed drop= male and female ingredients combined. Further the Quran says it comes from "between the loins and the ribs"...
