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. For ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

Creation According to Theory of Emanationism The verse in question doesn't suggest anything in regards with creation from nothingness. In fact, creation from absolute nothingness is a logical impossibility, unless we believe that God creates things from His own existence. This view is elaborated in the theory of Emanationism. The theory holds that there ...

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 ...

وقلنا يا آدم اسكن أنت وزوجك الجنة وكلا منها رغدا حيث شئتما ولا تقربا هذه الشجرة فتكونا من الظالمين And We said, "O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat therefrom in [ease and] abundance from wherever you will. But do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers." — Quran 2:35 ويا آدم اسكن أنت وزوجك الجنة فكلا من حيث ...

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 him ...

I am an Arabian (i.e. native Arabic speaker), and I laughed when I read the verse you made. First of all, it is not as eloquent as Quran, not even near. Secondly, what did you do is that you took the phrases of the Quran and changed few word; And even with these small changes, it's not even near to the eloquence of Quran. For example, you said "إنا ...

Before answering your questions, be aware that the recommendation on what to read and what not comes from ijtihad of the scholars and madhhab views that some times are a bit narrow. This isjithad is based on qur'an and sunnah and the practice delivered or reported by the sahabah and tabi'yn. Secondly what you recite of the qur'an during the prayer in ...

I think those verses you are looking for that, Allah challenges People Below Three verses Say, "If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants." [17] Al-Isra' : 88 Or do they say, "He invented it"? Say, "Then bring ten ...

It is my advice to you not to read articles by people who have no qualifications in Islam and are not scholars or people of knowledge in any way. The Quran does not directly mention the prohibition of these actions between two women in exclusion to the general statement. Meaning, it is already present in the general verses of the Prophet Lut (AS), but is ...

The following verses are among those cited by scholars as evidence for, or references to, the Punishment of the grave ( عذاب القبر ) within the Quran: النار يعرضون عليها غدوا وعشيا ويوم تقوم الساعة أدخلوا آل فرعون أشد العذاب The Fire, they are exposed to it morning and evening. And the Day the Hour appears [it will be said], "Make the people of ...

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 A ...

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 ...

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 ...

When Punishemnt is mentionned in Quran, it means (most of time) punishment after death : Hell : Djahanem. Jihad is not a punishemnt, and there's no notion of punishment related to jihad.

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 these pledges....

Alaikom salam. 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 bad" He then asked the ...
