i don't know, and i'm faaar from light (at least i feel so), thats why i'm asking and need an enlightment here.. i kinda like a confuse-man right now u know
if you ask me to interpret those verse, FYI i'm lack of knowledge bout arabic..
I did not ask you to interpret
I asked you to reflect, that means to me, that I was hoping that you would open The Quran and search for yourself for the answers and reflect on the verses you read.
InshaAllah , I will try to help you a little bit, but keep in mind that this is only how I understand it at this moment. I also advice you to erase everything you learned thus far, clear your mind from every hadith and and other falsehood.
Please just start with chapter 1 and then chapter 2 till you come to 2:8. read all those verses carefully.2:8 And from the people are those who say: "We believe in God and in the Last Day," but they are not believers.
Are you and me potential candidates? Think about it. Please note that this verse is not talking about atheists or some other groups. But why are they not believers?
The next verses tell you how these people behave, what they say, how they look like and why they are not among the believers. Please read those verses carefully (2:9-2:15). I believe that verse 2:16 sums it up, why they became who they are without even noticing it.2:16These are the ones who have purchased straying with guidance their trade did not profit them, nor were they guided.
blue part is referring to my understanding to the people mentioned in 2:8
red part is the why. They purchased straying with guidance and it was a bad trade.
verse 2:17-20 gives examples how this people are. Before you read those verses (2:17-20) please read first 3:7 and 2:26 and take your own conclusions.
We are now at 2:21 2:21 O people, serve your Lord who has created you and those before you that you may be righteous.
Who do we have to serve? please note the blue part, He did not only created you but also those before you. Is Bukharie created or is he your creator?
2:22 gives some more information about your Lord.2:22 The One who has made the earth a resting place, and the sky a shelter, and He sent down from the sky water with which He brought out fruits as a gift to you. So do not set up any equals with God while you know.
Did Bukharie do the red part? If you are 100% sure that Bukharie did not THEN please read the blue part very very veeeeeeeeeeeeery carefully. I guess you are one of the ones who know.
But if you are still in doubt, please read 2:23-242:23 And if you are in doubt as to what We have sent down to Our servant, then bring a sura like this, and call upon your witnesses other than God if you are truthful.
2:24 And if you cannot do this; and you will not be able to do this; then beware the Fire whose fuel is people and stones, it has been prepared for the rejecters.
Please read further the next verses and read the story of Adam carefully, it's not there just to tell a story. It's strongly connected to the previous verses you already read.
While you read take a note at verse 2:352:35 And We said: "O Adam, reside you and your mate in the paradise, and eat from it bountifully as you both wish, and do not approach this tree, else you will be of those who have wronged."
please read 2:36 to know what happened when Adam took some other guidance.
Similar to 2:35 is said in 2:38-392:38 We said: "Descend from it all of you, so when the guidance comes from Me, then whoever follows My guidance, they will have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve."
2:39 And those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations, they are the dwellers of Hell, in it they will abide.
I hope you understand now what the red part means. Please note also that Guidance is singular.
Is “The Quran and hadith” singular?
Salaam and may Allah increase us in knowledge and lead us to His Path,
and FYI my Arabic is like that of a toddler or worse.
