Salam!

Dear brothers and sister! I started studying Al-Quran more than two years back from now as a truth-seeker. I set the following Ayats as a Guidance and tried to be neutral/impartial during the study:

No. 1: Allah has gifted us with Eyes/Sight, Ears/Hearing and Hearts/Intellect so that we can gain knowledge and understand our matters and the signs of Allah سبحانہ و تعالیٰ

١٧_٣٦   وَلَا تَقْفُ مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلْمٌ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَٱلْبَصَرَ وَٱلْفُؤَادَ كُلُّ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ كَانَ عَنْهُ مَسْـُٔولًۭا
017:036 Do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed hearing, eyesight, and the heart?all of these are accountable.

١٦_٧٨   وَٱللَّهُ أَخْرَجَكُم مِّنۢ بُطُونِ أُمَّهَٰتِكُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ شَيْـًۭٔا وَجَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَٱلْأَبْصَٰرَ وَٱلْأَفْـِٔدَةَ ۙ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ
016:078 Allah has brought you forth from the bellies of your mothers while you did not know anything. He made for you hearing, eyesight, and hearts so that you may give thanks.

٤٦_٢٦   وَلَقَدْ مَكَّنَّٰهُمْ فِيمَآ إِن مَّكَّنَّٰكُمْ فِيهِ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ سَمْعًۭا وَأَبْصَٰرًۭا وَأَفْـِٔدَةًۭ فَمَآ أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُمْ سَمْعُهُمْ وَلَآ أَبْصَٰرُهُمْ وَلَآ أَفْـِٔدَتُهُم مِّن شَىْءٍ إِذْ كَانُوا۟ يَجْحَدُونَ بِـَٔايَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ وَحَاقَ بِهِم مَّا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ
046:026 Certainly We had granted them power in respects that We have not granted you, and We had vested them with hearing and sight and hearts. But neither their hearing availed them in any way nor did their sight, nor their hearts when they used to impugn the signs of Allah. So they were besieged by what they used to deride.


No. 2: The message of Al-Quran should have consistency and so in the understanding of its message. This even judges between people who have different understandings:

٤_٨٢   أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ ٱلْقُرْءَانَ ۚ وَلَوْ كَانَ مِنْ عِندِ غَيْرِ ٱللَّهِ لَوَجَدُوا۟ فِيهِ ٱخْتِلَٰفًۭا كَثِيرًۭا
004:082 Do they not contemplate the Quran? Had it been from [someone] other than Allah, they would have surely found much incongruity in it.

٢_١١٣   وَقَالَتِ ٱلْيَهُودُ لَيْسَتِ ٱلنَّصَٰرَىٰ عَلَىٰ شَىْءٍۢ وَقَالَتِ ٱلنَّصَٰرَىٰ لَيْسَتِ ٱلْيَهُودُ عَلَىٰ شَىْءٍۢ وَهُمْ يَتْلُونَ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ قَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ مِثْلَ قَوْلِهِمْ ۚ فَٱللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ فِيمَا كَانُوا۟ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ
002:113 The Jews say, 'The Christians stand not on anything'; the Christians say, 'The Jews stand not on anything'; yet they recite the Book. So too the ignorant say the like of them. God shall decide between them on the Day of Resurrection touching their differences.
١٦_٦٤   وَمَآ أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْكَ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ إِلَّا لِتُبَيِّنَ لَهُمُ ٱلَّذِى ٱخْتَلَفُوا۟ فِيهِ ۙ وَهُدًۭى وَرَحْمَةًۭ لِّقَوْمٍۢ يُؤْمِنُونَ
016:064 And We have not sent down upon thee the Book except that thou mayest make clear to them that whereon they were at variance, and as a guidance and as a mercy to a people who believe.
٤٢_١٠   وَمَا ٱخْتَلَفْتُمْ فِيهِ مِن شَىْءٍۢ فَحُكْمُهُۥٓ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمُ ٱللَّهُ رَبِّى عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْهِ أُنِيبُ
042:010 Whatever thing you may differ about, its judgement is with Allah. That is Allah, my Lord. In Him, I have put my trust, and to Him do I turn penitently.


No. 3: No one can change the words of Allah:
٦_٣٤   وَلَقَدْ كُذِّبَتْ رُسُلٌۭ مِّن قَبْلِكَ فَصَبَرُوا۟ عَلَىٰ مَا كُذِّبُوا۟ وَأُوذُوا۟ حَتَّىٰٓ أَتَىٰهُمْ نَصْرُنَا ۚ وَلَا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ ۚ وَلَقَدْ جَآءَكَ مِن نَّبَإِى۟ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ
006:034 Messengers were certainly denied before you, yet they patiently bore being denied and tormented until Our help came to them. Nothing can change the words of Allah, and there have certainly come to you some of the accounts of the Messengers.
٦_١١٥   وَتَمَّتْ كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ صِدْقًۭا وَعَدْلًۭا ۚ لَّا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَٰتِهِۦ ۚ وَهُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ
006:115 The word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and justice. Nothing can change His words, and He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing.

So when I started studying, the very first Ayah/Ayat in almost all the copies of Al-Quran was بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم and the very first word was بسم and almost all translators, tafseers/exegeses writers and dictionaries translated it as ?In the name of? or ?with the name? as its meaning. They say that it is actually the word باسم and the Alif has been dropped due to some certain reasons. I was not satisfied because I could see the difference between the two words. I tried to verify it from Al-Quran itself. Please check the below references yourself and tell me if you also see the difference or not:
1.   113 times in the beginning of every Surah except Surah No. 9
2.   1 time in Surah No. 27
٢٧_٣٠   إِنَّهُۥ مِن سُلَيْمَٰنَ وَإِنَّهُۥ بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
3.   1 time where only the words/phrase بسم اللہ appeared:
١١_٤١   ۞ وَقَالَ ٱرْكَبُوا۟ فِيهَا بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ مَجْر۪ىٰهَا وَمُرْسَىٰهَآ ۚ إِنَّ رَبِّى لَغَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ

Notice that there is no ?Alif? even if the word بسم is used within the lines and not in the beginning of a Surah.
On the other hand the word باسم is also used many times in Al-Quran.. See references below:
٢_٣١   وَعَلَّمَ ءَادَمَ ٱلْأَسْمَآءَ كُلَّهَا ثُمَّ عَرَضَهُمْ عَلَى ٱلْمَلَٰٓئِكَةِ فَقَالَ أَنۢبِـُٔونِى بِأَسْمَآءِ هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَٰدِقِينَ
٢_٣٣   قَالَ يَٰٓـَٔادَمُ أَنۢبِئْهُم بِأَسْمَآئِهِمْ ۖ فَلَمَّآ أَنۢبَأَهُم بِأَسْمَآئِهِمْ قَالَ أَلَمْ أَقُل لَّكُمْ إِنِّىٓ أَعْلَمُ غَيْبَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَأَعْلَمُ مَا تُبْدُونَ وَمَا كُنتُمْ تَكْتُمُونَ
٥٦_٧٤   فَسَبِّحْ بِٱسْمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
٥٦_٩٦   فَسَبِّحْ بِٱسْمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
٦٩_٥٢   فَسَبِّحْ بِٱسْمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
٩٦_١   بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ٱقْرَأْ بِٱسْمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ

So, brothers and sisters! I see the difference between بسم and باسم. ?Alif? is not dropped. Why?
Isn?t letter ب is used as a حرفِ جر as most of the grammar experts explain the word بسم.
I believe that the two words cannot have the same meaning. I will only believe in it when I will follow others than Allah or the Quran.

Here is another occurrence of the word بسم:
٢٧_١٩   فَتَبَسَّمَ ضَاحِكًۭا مِّن قَوْلِهَا وَقَالَ رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِىٓ أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ ٱلَّتِىٓ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَىَّ وَعَلَىٰ وَٰلِدَىَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَٰلِحًۭا تَرْضَىٰهُ وَأَدْخِلْنِى بِرَحْمَتِكَ فِى عِبَادِكَ ٱلصَّٰلِحِينَ

All translators have used the words ?smiled? or ?laughed? or ?amused? for translation of this verse because it is based on the Arabic root word ب س م which means ?He smiled? So the word بسم means smile (or pleasure/amusement).
Please use your sight and verify for yourself.

In case you feel difficulty in Arabic, here are the Transliterations for both Ayats which I quoted earlier:

https://www.islamawakened.com/quran/1/1/default.htm
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Transliteration       Bismi Allahi alrrahmani alrraheemi   
Transliteration-2       bis'mi l-lahi l-raḥmāni l-raḥīmi

https://www.islamawakened.com/quran/96/1/default.htm
ٱقْرَأْ بِٱسْمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ
Transliteration       Iqra/ bi-ismi rabbika allathee khalaqa   
Transliteration-2       iq'ra bi-is'mi rabbika alladhī khalaqa

This is how I learnt the first word and the first Ayat?s meaning. I believe that no one can change the ?words? of Allah.
PLEASURE/SMILE OF ALLAH, THE MOST COMPASSIONATE, THE EVER-MERCIFUL!

Now let?s use this meaning in the following Ayats and see the difference:
١١_٤١   ۞ وَقَالَ ٱرْكَبُوا۟ فِيهَا بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ مَجْر۪ىٰهَا وَمُرْسَىٰهَآ ۚ إِنَّ رَبِّى لَغَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ
My translation: And he said board/embark in it, pleasure/smile of Allah starts/runs it and stops/anchors it. Indeed my Lord/Nourisher is surely Oft-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful.

قَالَتْ يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلَؤُا۟ إِنِّىٓ أُلْقِىَ إِلَىَّ كِتَٰبٌۭ كَرِيمٌ
إِنَّهُۥ مِن سُلَيْمَٰنَ وَإِنَّهُۥ بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
أَلَّا تَعْلُوا۟ عَلَىَّ وَأْتُونِى مُسْلِمِينَ
My translation; [27:28-30]: She said, ?O chiefs! Indeed a venerable writing is delivered to me. Indeed it is from Suleiman? (Saying) ?And indeed it is pleasure of Allah, the Most-Compassionate, and the Most Merciful that not you wish eminence above Me and come to Me in submission/Muslimeen?.

Suleiman did not ask the queen to submit herself to Suleiman but he delivered her the message of Allah in which Allah's Ayat was quoted.

Muslimeen are those who submit to Allah!

May Allah bless and guide us all!

Suleiman did not ask the queen to submit herself to Suleiman but he delivered her the message of Allah in which Allah's Ayat was quoted.

Muslimeen are those who submit to Allah!

May Allah bless and guide us all!

Questions/Comments on the Quran / 7:40 and 7:51
« on: July 28, 2018, 03:33:57 PM »
Salam!

Brothers & Sisters!

Would appreciate your comments/explanation regarding below Ayats of Chapter 7.

[7:40] Indeed, those who deny Our verses and are arrogant toward them - the gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, nor will they enter Paradise until a camel enters into the eye of a needle. And thus do We recompense the criminals.

Does ALLAH consider this 'impossible'?

[7:51] Who took their religion as distraction and amusement and whom the worldly life deluded." So today We will forget them just as they forgot the meeting of this Day of theirs and for having rejected Our verses.

Can ALLAH 'forget' something?

Thank you in advance.
May ALLAH bless and guide all the truth seekers!

Peace!

Reference to the Al-Quran 41:13, What is Sa'iqa? Did the prophet warned Kuffar about the Sa'iqa as per Quran? Did Kuffar faced the Sa'iqa? Was it a hollow/fake threat? How it is related with النار. Please share what do you think/understand. Thanks in advance.

Salam!

I have found this website a few days back and am really surprised that they are promoting no sect.
Below is the link to the site and what they say about themselves/their website:

About Qur'anic Warners
We strive to guide to the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and to warn of the Last Day while keeping our own words to a minimum.  Those who speak by their own words speak from their own inclination without knowledge, and they thereby mislead many.  Therefore we avoid our own words and rely on the verses of God.  He revealed the Torah, then God gave Jesus the Gospel, confirming that which preceded it of the Torah, and to make clear to the Children of Israel over some of that which they differed.  So let the People of the Scripture judge by what God has revealed in the Torah and the Gospel.  Then He revealed the Qur'an, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it, so judge between them by what God has revealed.  But the people have divided the religion among themselves into sects - each faction rejoicing in the Book that it has.

But whoever disbelieves in His Books - the Book He sent down upon Muhammad, and the Scripture He sent down before, has gone far astray, for indeed this, your religion, is one religion.  For God has ordained for us of religion what He enjoined upon Noah and that which He revealed to Muhammad, and what He enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus - to establish the religion and not be divided therein.  Therefore we let the verses from all three speak for us by stringing them together in order to tell a story and to prove that indeed it is one religion - the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth.  This is done through a series of Topics, each having a thesis as a title and subtitle, where the thesis is an excerpt from a verse, and then the verses beneath serve to prove that thesis.  And each Topic has Sections that serve to prove and support the main thesis in like manner.

So for those who seek God with all their heart, they will have no doubt as to the truth of submitting to God alone in the religion of Abraham.  But for those who do not rely on God alone, but rather, those they associate with God, or instead are distracted by the worldly life and rely on assumption and blind faith, they will not be successful.  For God created death and life to test us as to which is best in deed, and He will surely test us to make evident those who believe and those who do not believe.  And so, only those who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what God has provided for them for His cause, and who believe in what has been revealed to Muhammad, and what was revealed before him, and of the Hereafter they are certain - those are upon guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.

Hope it would be of interest for some brothers and sisters here.

Salam Brothers and Sisters!

Can we translate "As-Salat" as 'Social Justice - according to Quran's Guidance/Laws'
and translate "Az-Zakat" as 'Distribution of Wealth/Resources - according to Quran's Guidance/Laws'
Please share your views. Thanks!

Note: I am not talking about the terms Social Justice and Distribution of Wealth used in Marxism

Peace!

Jinn & the Paranormal / May be WE are the Jinns/Djinns

Salamun Alaikum! Brothers and Sister!

Knowledge is something what we obtain in the result of some questioning to ourselves or to the people around us. Most probably everyone of us has the first question to himself/herself is "WHO AM I or WHAT I AM"? Identifying our own selves is of much importance in our LIVES. When I questioned myself the same question, I got no satisfactory answer. Everything I learnt and believed was from the sayings of others around me which look like MYSELF. They told me that I am a HUMAN BEING انسان and I was satisfied with such witnesses. But when I started researching Quran and learnt that everything requires proof. We should deny the Hadiths of People and get proof from Quran or some said evidence from science is required. So this question again raised to my mind. Do I have a proof that I am a HUMAN? Maybe I am a JINN.
A majority of people thinks that JINNS are shape shifter. Let's watch a few images of 'facial expression' with the help of Google Images and see for ourselves. Are we shape shifter JINNS?
Some say we cannot see JINNS. Why? Because WE are JINNS?

Science says that Human Beings have 5 senses while Allah has told in QURAN that HUMANS are given the following senses/organs and these senses would be questioned in the Hereafter:
1. Seeing
2. Hearing
3. Qulub/Understanding (is it a SENSE?)

What about Taste? (I don't know if it is given as a SENSE or would be questioned in the hereafter. Moreover, mostly the taste is used in context of Hereafter/Jannah or taste of Azab عذاب, torment, death, mercy etc.)

What about (Touching)? It is NOT mentioned as something given as a sense or which would be questioned in the OTHER/HEREAFTER. The word Touch is used 52 in 48 Ayats when I searched for the word TOUCH at (searchtruth.com). A few examples are given below:
(سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #80) Touching of fire in the Hereafter/Hell not in THIS WORD
(سورة آل عمران, Aal-i-Imraan, Chapter #3, Verse #24)

(سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #236) used for sexual intercourse as per most interpretations/translations
(سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #237)

(سورة آل عمران, Aal-i-Imraan, Chapter #3, Verse #47) Marry مریم said than no MAN has Touched her (because MAN don't have a sense of touch OR MAN could not have sexual intercourse with her?)
(سورة مريم, Maryam, Chapter #19, Verse #20)

(سورة آل عمران, Aal-i-Imraan, Chapter #3, Verse #140) It is WOUND/DEATH which can touch MAN - Man cannot
(سورة آل عمران, Aal-i-Imraan, Chapter #3, Verse #174)

(سورة الأنعام, Al-An'aam, Chapter #6, Verse #7) MAN unable to touch the Paper?

(سورة الأنعام, Al-An'aam, Chapter #6, Verse #17)
(6:17) And if Allah touches you with harm, none can remove it but He, and if He touches you with good, then He is Able to do all things.

(سورة الواقعة, Al-Waaqia, Chapter #56, Verse #79) None can touch (Allah's Book) but purified

In short it is Harm, weariness, fire, Allah, Satan, death, etc. which can touch MAN and MAN cannot. Wherever a physical touching is mentioned it is meant for sexual intercourse.

What about Smell? The word(s) "smell" appears 3 time(s) in 3 verse(s) in Quran in Mohsin Khan translation.

(1) And when the caravan departed, their father said: "I do indeed feel the smell of Yusuf (Joseph), if only you think me not a dotard (a person who has weakness of mind because of old age)." قَالَ أَبُوهُمْ إِنِّي لَأَجِدُ رِيحَ يُوسُفَ
(سورة يوسف, Yusuf, Chapter #12, Verse #94)
Question: Can we smell someone from a distance or from air ?

(سورة محمد, Muhammad, Chapter #47, Verse #15) What word is translated as SMELL?
(سورة المطففين, Al-Mutaffifin, Chapter #83, Verse #26) Again, what word is tranlated as SMELL?

Do you find a word exactly with the meaning SMELL in Quran?

So, brothers and sisters! What do you think? Are we HUMAN BEINGS or JINNS?
Maybe this would solve most of the mysteries related with our Origin and our Identity etc., which we have not solved till now neither through science nor through Quran.

Peace to all!

Questions/Comments on the Quran / "The Three" in 9:118

Salamun Alaikum, Brothers and Sisters! Can some one describe the word "The Three" (الثلثة) in Chapter 9 verse 118 without referring to any Hadith?
