  • ~Beautiful Verses from the Quran ~

    Assamulakum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu Dear Friends :)

    Let us dedicate this thread to some thought provoking verses from the Quran

    Surah Fathiha 1:1

    In the Name of Allâh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

    If thou bring them not a revelation, they say: "Why hast thou not got it together?" Say: "I but follow what is revealed to me from my Lord: this is (nothing but) lights from your Lord, and Guidance, and mercy, for any who have faith."


    When the Qur'an is read, listen to it with attention, and hold your peace: that ye may receive Mercy.

    That Allah may reward them according to the best of their deeds, and add even more for them out of His Grace: for Allah doth provide for those whom He will, without measure.

      So patiently persevere: for verily the promise of Allah is true: nor let those shake thy firmness, who have (themselves) no certainty of faith.

        InshaAllah you may find this relevant. :)


        What does the Qur’an have to say?

        This should be important to know for all who are concerned with humanity and peace in this world, torn apart by strife, hatred and violence. It should be important whether one believes that the Qur’an is the Word of God or not.

        To know what the Qur’an says is important because the Qur’an has made a deep and abiding impact on the course of human civilisation and history in many fundamental ways; because it has been inspiring, shaping, governing and directing countless human lives over the ages, since it first appeared fourteen hundred years ago.

        And it still does.

        The Qur’an, among all other books believed to be divine, is the only book which itself claims, and is believed by its followers to be literally the word of God.

        Those who first heard it from the lips of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) had absolutely no doubt that, through him, God was speaking to them. It totally transformed them; it quickened their hearts, ir reshaped their minds; it made their eyes overflow with tears and their bodies tremble with awe, it changed them into new individuals, as well as a new society and polity; it led them to be leaders of mankind and founders of a rich and flowing civilisation.

        More significantly, what a remarkable testimony it is to the unique power of the Qur’an that, in an age when God has been made irrelevant to human existence and concerns, millions and millions of human beings- as much as one fifth of the human race- still cling tenaciously to the book which they believe with certainty to be the Word of God, as the only blueprint for a bright, progressive, post modern future.
        It is still the supreme source of inspiration, guidance and comfort in their spiritual, moral, social and cultural lives, it still influences and shapes their way of thinking and conduct, both private and public, in innumerable ways.

        To know what it says is therefore not only important for better inter- human understanding and amity, but it may be crucial for the destiny of mankind too.

        However, everyone cannot venture to read the whole of the Qur’an, though its length is less than that of the New Testament.
        Yet everyone should have the opportunity to taste the delicious fruits in the garden of the Qur’an.

        [Khurram Murad, The Quranic Treasures]

        ‘All praise be to God alone,
        the Lord of all the worlds,
        the All-Merciful, the Ever Mercy-giving,
        the Master of the Day of Judgement.
        You alone we worship, and You alone we ask for help.
        Guide us on the Straight Path,
        The path of whom You have blessed, not of those who incur You anger,
        Nor of those who go astray.’

        (al-Fatihah 1: 1-7)

        ‘Will they not, then, try to understand this Qur’an?
        Had it come from anyone other than God, they would have found in it many an inner contradiction.’

        (al-Nisa 4:82)

        ‘Blessed is He in whose hands is the Kingdom- who is powerful over everything- who has created death and life, so that He might test you as to which among you [proves that he] is good in conduct.’

        (al-Mulk 67: 1-2)

        ‘Say: The Truth has come from your Lord. Let him who will, believe it, and let him who will, reject it.’

        (al-Kahf 18: 29)

        ‘Whosoever chooses to follow guidance, follows it for his own good; whosoever goes astray, goes astray to his own loss.’

        (al-Isra’ 17: 15)

        [And God said to Adam] ‘Get you all down out of it; yet there shall most certainly come to you guidance from Me, and those who follow My guidance need have no fear, and neither shall they grieve.’

        (al-Baqarah 2: 38)

        ‘Surely We have sent you [O Muhammad] with the Truth, as a herald of good tidings and a warner, for there were never a people without a warner having come among them.’

        (al-Fatir 35: 24)

        ‘We have sent you to the entire mankind to give them good tidings, and warn them; but most people do not understand this.’

        (Saba’ 34: 28)

        ‘The Jews say, ‘The Christians have no valid grounds’; the Christians say, ‘The Jews have no valid grounds’; and both quote the Book [of God]. So do those who have no knowledge [of the Book] speak like them. But it is God who will decide between them on the Day of Ressurection about all on which they differ.’

        (al-Baqarah 2: 113)

        ‘Whosoever holds fast to God, he has been guided onto the Straight Path.’

        (al-Imran 3: 101)

        ‘Say: He is God, the One and Unique;
        God, the Eternal source and support
        Of everything;
        He begets not, and neither is He begotten;
        And none is His equal.’

        (al-Ikhlas 112: 1-4)

        ‘It is He who accepts repentance from His servants, and pardons bad deeds, and knows all that you do. And He answers those who have faith and do righteous deeds, and gives them- out of His bounty- far more.’

        (al-Shura 42: 25-6)

        ‘The true servants of the Most Merciful are those who behave gently and with humility on earth, and whenever the foolish quarrel with them, they reply with [words of] peace.’

        (al-Furqan 25: 63)

        ‘Turn not your cheek away from people in scorn and pride, and walk not on earth haughtily; for God does not love anyone who acts proudly and boastfully. Be modest in your bearing and lower your voice; for the ugliest sound is the donkey’s braying.’

        (Luqman 31: 18-19)

        [Successful are the believers]…who are faithful to their trusts and to their promises.’

        (al-Mu’minun 23:8)

        ‘And be true to every promise- for, verily you willl be called to account for every promise which you have made.’

        (al-Isra 17: 34)

        ‘Indeed, We sent Our messengers with evident truth, and We sent down with them the Book and the balance (of right and wrong), so that people might behave [with each other] with justice.’

        (al-Hadid 57: 25)

        ‘Never let your enmity for anyone lead you into the sin of deviating from justice. Always be just: that is closest to being God-fearing.’

        (al-Ma’idah 5:8)

        ‘Do you know the one who denies the (Day of) Judgement? It is he who pushes the orphan away, and urges not to feed the needy. Woe, then unto those praying ones, who are heedless of their prayers, who want to be seen and praised, and refuse (to give) even little things in charity.’

        (al Ma’un 107: 1-7)

        ‘The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto; but if a person forgives and makes peace, his reward rests with God; He loves not those who do wrong.’

        (al-Shura 42: 40)

        ‘Good and evil can never be equal. Repel (evil) with that which is better, and see how, then, someone between whom and you was enmity shall become a true friend. Yet none is given such goodness except those who are patient; none is give this but the most fortunate.’

        (al-Fussilat 41: 34-5)

        ‘Your Lord has decreed that you shall serve none but Him, and do good to your parents. Should one or both of them reach old age with you, never say ‘Ugh’ to them, nor scold either of them; but speak to them kindly and respectfully, spread over them the wings of humility and mercy, and say, ‘My Lord, have mercy upon them, as they raised me up when I was little.’

        (al-Isra 17: 23- 4)

        ‘Women have rights (over against men) equal to the rights (they owe men) – but men have precedence over them.’

        (al-Baqarah 2: 228)

        ‘Verily, that which is with God is the best for you, if you but knew it: all that which is with you is bound to end, whereas all that which is with God is everlasting.’

        (al-Nahl 16: 95-6)

        ‘The parable of those who spend their wealth in the way of God is that of a grain, out of which grow seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains.’

        (al-Baqarah 2: 261)

        ‘The flesh of sacrificial animals does not reach God and neither their blood; but only godliness from you reaches Him.’

        (al-Hajj 22: 37)

        ‘And they say, ‘None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.’ These are their wishful beliefs. Say, ‘Produce your evidence if what you say is true!’
        Nay, whosoever surrenders his whole being unto God, and is a doer of good, shall have his reward from his Lord; on them shall be no fear, neither shall they sorrow.’

        (al-Baqarah 2: 111-12)
        What does 'freedom' mean?

        Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
        Restricted by the sky?

        Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
        Not enough river to explore?

        Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
        but death for the fish,

        The sea is wide for the fish
        but will engulf the bird.

        We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
        We can only express our nature as it was created.

        The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
        freedom from slavery to other than the One,
        Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
        and a horizon that extends to the next life,
        Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

          "Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: ‘My Lord! bestow on them Thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood' "(17:23-24).

              An-Nisa 78:

              "No matter where you may be, death is going to reach you, even if you are in fortified towers..."

              An-Nisa 82:

              "Do they not ponder over the Quran? If it was from someone other than Allah, they would find many discrepancies in it."

              An-Nisa 86:

              "When anyone greets you in a courteous manner, let your greetings be better that his- or at least return the same, Allah keeps account of everything."

              An-Nisa 95:

              Not equal are those believers who stay at home-having no physical disability and those who make jihad in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their persons. Allah has granted a higher rank to those who make jihad with their wealth and their persons that to those who stay at home, though Allah has promised a good reward for all. Allah has prepared a much richer reward for those who make jihad for Him than for those who stay at home"

                O ye who believe! Let not your riches or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. If any act thus, the loss is their own.

                And spend of that wherewith We have provided you before death cometh unto one of you and he saith: My Lord! If only thou wouldst reprieve me for a little while, then I would give alms and be among the righteous.

                But to no soul will Allah grant respite when the time appointed (for it) has come; and Allah is well acquainted with (all) that ye do.

                  And Allah sends down rain from the skies, and gives therewith life to the earth after its death: verily in this is a Sign for those who listen.
                  Qur'an 16:65

                  Follow thou the inspiration sent unto thee, and be patient and constant, till Allah do decide: for He is the best to decide.

But God's purpose is to test you in what he has given each of you, so strive in the pursuit of virtue, and know that you will all return to God [in the Hereafter], and He will resolve all the matters in which you disagree."

                            Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth,
                            The parable of His Light is as if there were a niche,
                            And within it a Lamp: The Lamp enclosed in Glass;
                            The glass as it were a brilliant star;
                            Lit from a blessed Tree,
                            An Olive, neither of the East nor of the West,
                            Whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it;
                            Light upon Light!
                            Allah doth set forth parables for men: and Allah doth know all things.

                            surah 24:35 Al Nur (The Light)
                            (Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, 1989.)
                            .: Rufaida :.
                            .:Fa Firroo Ila-llaah:.
                            “People praise you for what they suppose is in you,
                            but you must blame your soul for what you know is in you.”
