The prophecy about the Romans winning in less than 10 years after losing to the Persians did take place. The place where the Romans got defeated is not explicitly mentioned in the Qur'an or the hadiths. It is, however, mentioned in multiple books of tafsīr. The opinion of the unnamed person in the YouTube video (Undeniable Quranic Miracle — Rome's Defeat at ...

I couldn't find it anywhere suggesting that it was a tail. The verse 2:73 states: فَقُلْنَا اضْرِبُوهُ بِبَعْضِهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يُحْيِي اللَّهُ الْمَوْتَىٰ وَيُرِيكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ in English: And We said: Smite him with some of it. Thus Allah bringeth the dead to life and showeth you His portents so that ye may understand. ...

These two verses, and the ten or so before, and many subsequent verses, are detailing many of the stories of Bani Israeel at the time of Musa (alayhi salaam). This discourse details the escape of Bani Israeel from Fir'awn; the miraculous parting of the sea; their subsequent shirk with the golden calf, and repentance; their taking (and later breaking) of the ...

I am adding this as reference work only, it seems most of the mufassirin mentions laylatu al qadr. About verse 4: فِيهَا يُفْرَقُ كُلُّ أَمْرٍ حَكِيمٍ Muhammad Asad translates it to: On that [night] was made clear, in wisdom, the distinction between all things [good and evil] His comment on that verse is: Lit., "was made distinct everything wise",...

Surah A’raaf (The Heights) has stories of Prophet Adam at the start, moves on, later the Prophet Nuh’s story comes, then Prophet Hud’s, then Prophet Saleh, then Prophet Lut, then Prophet Shu’aib, then talks about how all these towns were destroyed, then gives a good 6 (or more) page story about Prophet Musa (peace be upon all of them). Surah Hud (A.S.): on ...

The Arabic is النعاس (the third word), which means means drowsiness. See entry in Lane's Lexicon: For usage in Hadith see: إذا نعس أحدكم وهو يصلي فليرقد حتى يذهب عنه النوم فإن أحدكم إذا صلى وهو ناعس لا يدري لعله يستغفر فيسب نفسه If anyone of you feels drowsy while praying he should go to bed (sleep) till his slumber is over because in praying while drowsy ...

It seems to me that in the video there's a mix of two different stories: a famine during the expedition and the story of the 7 poor sahaba who wanted to support the expedition but had nothing but themselves to offer. In sahih Muslim there's a long story which might be the one you are looking for: During the time of Tabuk expedition, the (provisions) ran ...

The verse you are asking about is: وَآتُوا الْيَتَامَىٰ أَمْوَالَهُمْ وَلَا تَتَبَدَّلُوا الْخَبِيثَ بِالطَّيِّبِ وَلَا تَأْكُلُوا أَمْوَالَهُمْ إِلَىٰ أَمْوَالِكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حُوبًا كَبِيرًا And give to the orphans their properties and do not substitute the defective [of your own] for the good [of theirs]. And do not consume their properties ...

This night is laylatul qadr (the night of glory) when the First Surah of the Quran was revealed (Surah Alaq). The night implies the same night which has been called lailat-ul-qadr in Surah Al-Qadr (97). There it has been said: `We sent it down in a Night of Glory," (97:1) and here: `We sent it down in a blessed Night." (44:3) Then the Qur'an ...

A commentary of the said verse by Al Wahidi explains the occasion of its revelation: Said Muqatil: “This verse (Men are in charge of women…) was revealed about Sa‘d ibn al-Rabi‘, who was one of the leaders of the Helpers (nuqaba’), and his wife Habibah bint Zayd ibn Abi Zuhayr, both of whom from the Helpers.

The verse in Qur'an 2:29 that you quoted says: هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ لَكُم مَّا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ فَسَوَّاهُنَّ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ ۚ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ It is He who created for you all of that which is on the earth.

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. And do not marry polytheistic men [to your women] until they believe. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist, even though he might please you. Those invite [you] to the Fire, but Allah invites ...

To learn more about the story behind the story here are some sources (note for the explicit story of the killed boy there are many different versions on how he was killed Imam al-Qurtoby in his tafsir said one could bring them together): From Sahih al-Bukhari From the both Sahihs and Jami' at-Tirmidhi narrated by ibn Jubair. So the point is that Moses or ...

He did not take it lightly, but although he did not know the reason, he had to trust Al-Khidr because Allah recommended him: In the story explained by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) : ‘Moses got up to deliver a sermon before Bani Israel and he was asked, 'Who is the most learned person among the people?' Moses replied, 'I (am the most learned).' Allah then ...

This verse does not recommend anything, in this verse Allah is talking to the Mushrikeen and is telling them that Allah can bring the dead back to life, and was using this story of the past. Furthermore with anyone with an Arabic dictionary and a fair amount of knowledge of Nahu will know that the word (كَذَ‌ٰلِكَ) in the verse dose not mean that it can ...

The flood was local because it was a torment to those who denied Noah's (AS) preaching. Noah(AS) was close to Adam(AS) which indicates that at that point the human race would be all Noah's tribe in one place. Secondly, if someone else who never opposed Noah(AS) or who lived in some distant land, then what justice would it be to drown him and his family ...

Look at the verses in the Quran in reference to the flood: We sent Nuh to his people and he remained among them for fifty short of a thousand years; yet the Flood engulfed them while they were wrongdoers. (Qur'an, 29:14) We sent Nuh to his people: "I am a clear warner to you. Worship none but Allah. I fear for you the punishment of a painful ...

Tafsirs state that this was revealed in response to a specific group of the Jews who said this to the Prophet Muhammad(p.b.u.h) and was not a common belief, nor does it remain a canonical belief in Judaism. From Tafsir Al Qurtubi: قوله تعالىٰ: { وَقَالَتِ ٱلْيَهُودُ } هذا لفظ خرج على العموم ومعناه الخصوص؛ لأن ليس كل اليهود قالوا ذلك. وهذا مثلُ قوله تعالىٰ: {...

Because the Majority of Bani Isra'eel were not believers, and because they had a mentality that they believe in only what their senses can perceive, they asked to see Allah, so Allah took them and then brought them back to life: ثُمَّ بَعَثْنَاكُم مِّن بَعْدِ مَوْتِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ This incident happened right after they got out of Egypt, and ...

As for the three parts some scholars -especially from the shafi'i school of fiqh- base it on the verse itself: ... then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar (22:36) interpreting it as eat from it (1/3), feed the needy (1/3) and the beggar (1/3). Beside an interpretation of the hadith in Sahih Muslim and a former statement which was revised by ...

Yes, they were. The Prophet chose the scibes and under his supervision they would copy word for word. Known scribes were: Ali ibn Abi Talib, Abdullah b. Masud, Abu Dardah, Zayd b. Thabit, Ma'adh b.

Let me quote Islahi. His exegesis (Urdu) of Surah Al-Hijr is available here. The following translation is mine as I could not find its English translation. To look back again and again while leaving a place is an indication of love and affinity for it. It is quite natural in normal circumstances and manifestation of such instincts cannot be barred or ...

According to the tafsir of Imam Al-Qurtoby they have been told not to look back for the reason that they should do their best (hurry) to leave the place before the morning as it said in an other Verse in Suart Hud (11:81) Then the angels said, "O Lot, We are messengers sent by your Lord. They shall not be able to do you any harm. So depart from here ...

The prophet Lut (May peace be upon him) was leaving his people as Allah ordered him to do: "The angels said, "O Lot, indeed we are messengers of your Lord; [therefore], they will never reach you.

Prophet Jesus (PBUH) came as a warner to Jews. Jews or Bani-Israel is the nation that originated from Prophet Abraham's (PBUH) son, Prophet Isaac (PBUH). Before Prophet Abraham (PBUH), individuals were given prophethood but then the whole progeny of Prophet Abraham (PBUH) were given "prophethood". This is mentioned in Surah 2 Verse 124 And [mention, O ...
