The most well-known understanding of the verse is that people were created "dead." Then, they were given life when they came to this world. Then, they will die. Then, they will be brought back to life for Qiyamah.
That is two deaths and two lives. This is an opinion attributed to Ibn Masood (RA) and Qatada (RA).
The meeting with Allah where they ...
Non-Muslims should not be taken as allies or guardians by the Muslims, especially not in preference to Muslims:
لا يتخذ المؤمنون الكافرين أولياء من دون المؤمنين ومن يفعل ذلك فليس من الله في شيء
Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah
— Quran 3:28
ياأيها الذين آمنوا لا تتخذوا ...
The order of the verses (ayāt, Arabic: آيات) within a chapter (sūrah, Arabic: سوره) is by Divine revelation through Jibrīl. When a verse was revealed to the Prophet ﷺ, Jibrīl told the Prophet ﷺ where the verse goes, and it could very well be a verse revealed in Medina to go after or before a verse revealed in Mecca in a surah that is considered Meccan.
It's hard to me to answer this in English but i'll try my best.
First we have to answer one thing. Does ALLAH need anything to survive or to be a God?!!!
Of course NO. Then we have to say that ALLAH doesn't in need for anybody and anything. This will be the rule that will guide us.
Now When ALLAH want to make a thing He just says Be and it will be, ...
Although your question does not provide enough details of where or how you happen to attain this info but here goes my answer:
As you may have seen in the Quran some Ayat are maybe a quote of conversation (Allah knows best), to relate this to your answer i will refer to versus from Surat Al'raf, where god has commanded angels to bow down Adam but Satan has ...
A chapter being Meccan or Medini means it began to reveal before or after Hijrah.
It could include verses from both times since not all of the Surahs were completed at once and instead were revealed in stages, depending on the situation that needed to be addressed.
The Quran was arranged by Allah Himself during the Prophetic mission:
“And those who ...
Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs gives the following commentary:
(Allah hath sealed their hearts), stamped their hearts, (and their hearing, and on their eyes there is a covering), on their eyes there is a shield (and theirs will be an awful doom) an awful torment in the Hereafter.
Al-Jalalayn gives the commentary:
for them there will be a ...
What should be clear
I guess that the two life's mentioned in this verse must be clear:
The life in this life (Dunya)
And the life in the hereafter (al-Aakhirah)
The point that might cause trouble are the two deaths.
قَالُوا رَبَّنَا أَمَتَّنَا اثْنَتَيْنِ وَأَحْيَيْتَنَا اثْنَتَيْنِ فَاعْتَرَفْنَا بِذُنُوبِنَا فَهَلْ إِلَى خُرُوجٍ مِنْ سَبِيلٍ
Is it true that there were verse(s) of the Quran dictating the stoning of adulterers?
Yes. Once upon a time there were verse(s) of the Quran dictating the stoning of adulterers.
The verse of Stoning was REVEALED and it was RECITED and it was also MEMORIZED by the sahaba.
“Allah sent Muhammad with the Truth and revealed the Holy Book to him,
and among what ...
The known ahadith are about geckos -the word الوزغ used here seems rather to refer to this according my limited knowledge in Arabic language- or salamander according to some translation and they are in general qualified as sahih:
He who killed a gecko with the first stroke for him is such and such a reward, and he who killed it with a second stroke for ...
As sassir pointed out in his comment this isn't really a matter of spelling rather than a matter of rasm al-mushaf (how words/letters of the quranic text or scripture have been written by the sahaba and later).
You should know that the Arabic letters and language as we know it today was not the same as at the time of our Messenger (Peace be upon him) so the ...
The obvious answer is to consult a work of Tafsir, as the comprehensive ones among them will cite any relevant hadith.
Some hadith collections have a dedicated book on tafsir of Quranic verses, for example the كتاب التفسير of Bukhari and Muslim etc.
I guess you are referring to the following Verse in Surat an-Nahl
Do not behave like that woman who had spun yarn laboriously and then
had herself broken it into pieces.90 You make your mutual oaths a
means of mutual deceit in your affairs so that one people might take
undue advantage over the other whereas Allah puts you to trial by
Islam is usually known through external actions, while Iman is internal.
The hadith of Angel Jibril,
He asked the Prophet "What is Iman?"
The Prophet replied:
"Iman is to believe in Allah, His angels, meeting with Him, His
Prophets, and to believe in Resurrection, and predestination, good and
He then asked the ...
There is not a complete agreement in this regard among scholars. There is t opinion: some say Prophet (SAWW) himself when was alive changed the arrange of verses from "ordered by revelation time" to current arrange by command of Allah and before this change of arrange order of verses was by revelation times.
And other opinion says after prophet Sahaba ...
