The month of Ramadan brings with it a load of reminders and emphasis on tilāwah/reciting the Qur’an. This is established by the ḥadīth where Jibrīl would visit the Prophet ﷺ during Ramadan and go through the Qur’an with him, as well as the connect...

Ḥifẓ/Taḥfīẓul Qur’ān. It’s almost become a thing in our community where putting your child through the Ḥifẓ programme is another brownie point on your community CV; setting up a Taḥfīẓul Qur’ān class or holding a Ḥifẓ Graduation ceremony is the ma...

Another amazing choice of wording I came across today was in the following āyah of Sūrat Luqmān:

وَلَقَدۡ ءَاتَيۡنَا لُقۡمَـٰنَ ٱلۡحِكۡمَةَ أَنِ ٱشۡكُرۡ لِلَّهِ‌ۚ وَمَن يَشۡكُرۡ فَإِنَّمَا يَشۡكُرُ لِنَفۡسِهِۦ ‌ۖ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَنِىٌّ حَمِيدٌ (31:12)

The Qur’ān is a miracle in many ways. One of these ways is how each word, in each āyah, is so apt and unique in expressing its meaning.

One such example we came across today was the term ‘نَجَّيْنَاكُم’ in the āyah:

وَإِذۡ نَجَّيۡنَـٰكُم مِّنۡ ءَالِ فِرۡعَوۡنَ يَسُومُونَ...

Allāh’s sustaining of His creation is of two types:

  1. General: His creating them, providing for them, and guiding them to everything that they need for their survival in this world.

  2. Exclusive: His sustaining His friends, by blessing them with Īmān, giving them th...

For those Muslims going through a period of prolonged suffering in the world, I’d like to draw their attention to an āyah of the Qur’ān.

In it Allāh addresses the believers, by firstly pointing out that their efforts in this worldly life are toward...

Here in the UK, we have been experiencing strong winds over the past few weeks, and I felt the need to write a post based on how the wind has been mentioned in the Qur’ān and the aḥādīth. This was so that I myself and the readers could gain a better understanding of it...

Aslam رضي الله عنه narrates that ‘Umar رضي الله عنه once received news that Abū ‘Ubaydah رضي الله عنه had been besieged in Syria, and the enemy had joined forces against him. So ‘Umar رضي الله عنه wrote to him:

Peace [be upon you].

No difficulty befalls a believing serva...

Imām Al-Qurṭubī and Imām Ibn Kathīr رحمهما الله both quote the statement of the great Mufassir (Scholar of Tafsīr), Aḍ-Ḍaḥḥāk ibn Al-Muzāḥim رحمه الله, which is an eye-opener for all of us who learn the Qur’ān (or some portions of it) and then find that we have forgott...

One of the pious predecessors once said:

“When I hear an example from the Qur’ān and do not understand it, I lament over myself, because Allāh says, ‘We cite these examples for people, but no one understands them except the knowledgeable ones[1].’[2]"

This is a reality c...
