The fatiha. On a beautiful read and reread, it is not Allah who speaks. It is clearly a prayer and an invocation where it is the faithful of Allah who are supposed to express themselves to ask the guidance of their God.

15:87    And We have given you seven that are dual, and the great Qur'an.

The Fatiha / the opening (seven verses). Therefore, it is probably not part of what Allah calls Qur'an. A kind of preface. Still, it is well "tagged" by the famous Bismillah (with the verb of Allah) at the beginning to indicate that it is Allah himself who chose the words. Obviously, nowadays, Bismillah has lost its meaning.

15-87 obviously offers another dual reading. The number seven, which has the etymological meaning of "wild", may indicate an indefinite range (7 heavens, 7 gates, etc.). 15-87 could therefore translate this into a conference with several dualities of meaning, thus pointing to the several levels of conference offered parallel to the primary meaning.

15-87 obviously offers another dual reading. Allah loves to do that. The number seven, which has the etymological meaning of "wild", may indicate an indefinite range (7 heavens, 7 gates, etc.). 15-87 could therefore translate this into a conference with several dualities of meaning, thus pointing to the several levels of conference offered parallel to the primary meaning.

Basically, what the Fatiha expresses as an idea, in preface to the Qur'an, is that the reader who will open the Qur'an must pray to God to have the right interpretation and to be on the path of those who are guided, not that of those who are lost or those who encourage anger.

Leave aside the Fatiha and move on to the first verses of the Qur'an :

2:1    ALM.
2:2    That is the book, which is without doubt-a guide for the righteous.
2:3    The ones who believe in the unseen, and hold the Connection, and from Our provisions to them they spend.

The first verse is a kind of challenge. A reminder to humility.

The first intelligible words for us, for the moment, are "This is the book".

52:2    And a recorded Book.
52:3    In parchment published.

98:2    A messenger from God reciting purified scripts.

80:11    No, this is but a reminder.
80:12    For whoever wills to remember.
80:13    In scripts which are honorable.
80:14    Raised and pure.
80:15    By the hands of scribes.
80:16    Honorable and righteous.

Verse 2-2 also explains that the book is not for everyone. It is a book "without doubts" certainly, but only for those who want to take refuge near God. Either the famous sound of Sabil (same root as tap), which are attached to the flow that comes from above.

Those who do not have the twisted mind, taking the famous book in their hands, have to make the decision whether it comes from a God, a wise man, a madman. of a counterfeiter.
As stupid as it may seem, it is a decision that one takes in one's soul and conscience, by reading the book.

The "philosophical" depth of the Qur'an is proof of authenticity for the Qur'an reader. By not reading the book, we miss the point.

The Koran reinforces the almost fundamentalist love of truth. Even minority. Even lonely. Even against national unity and cultural heritage. Even taunted. Even "excommunicated", even treated of madness. How many examples with Noah, Lot, Salih, Chuaib and many others.

The enemy of Islam is obscurantism. Those who lay the lie on the truth (kafir). The great purveyor in the wrong sense explained that the "dhalimin" of the Koran, repeatedly mentioned, are the unjust ones. But this term designates darkness and opposes clarity. Injustice is a consequence of obscurantism. And those who fight injustice by being tolerant of obscurantism are allies to injustice in the eyes of the Koran. Truth and faithfulness to the word given are supreme values ​​for the Qur'an. A people tolerant with lies, who practice lies can not succeed.

7:58    And the good land, its plants are brought forth with the permission of its Lord. And for the one that is nasty, it does not bring forth except very little. It is such that We dispatch the signs for a people who are thankful.

A people who tolerate being led by people who see their commitments broken and take advantage of what is entrusted to them can not succeed.

17:16    And if We wish to annihilate a town, We leave its reckless to rule it, then they commit wickedness in it, then the word is given, then We destroy it completely.

The primacy of values ​​over the rest is an essential Qur'anic teaching. And a people who wants to pass on to a future generation the lies inherited from the previous one, in the name of a cultural identity idealized publicly and denigrated in intimacy, can not succeed.

To say the truth, or failing that which is sincerely believed, is a fight for light against obscurantism. To defend what is believed true with false arguments is to cover the true with the false. It's obscurantism.

For the author of this article, the depth of what he reads in the Koran relegates to the second place the question of its authenticity. Comment a fake can tell if true? How can a book that fervently preaches the truth and the right word perhaps a falsehood and a lie?

One of the greatest teachings of the Quran is that if it is the eyes that read, it is the mind that interprets. The same verses will be understood differently by a healthy spirit and a perverse spirit. Allah gives the book to all but the wahy (understanding, revelation) only to his followers.

The Quran is obviously about its own authenticity. The Quran reassures its followers by saying:

15:9    Indeed it is We who have sent down the reminder, and indeed it is We who will preserve it.

as if to say, "do not worry, Allah takes care of it", then address others by basing the whole argument in the form of challenges.

The contradictions to find

4:82    Do they not reflect on the Qur'an? If it was from any other than God they would have found in it many a discrepancy.

and reproducibility:
2:23    And if you are in doubt as to what We have sent down to Our servant, then bring a chapter like this, and call upon your witnesses other than God if you are truthful.

10:38    Or do they say: "He has invented it!" Say: "Then bring a chapter like it, and call on whom you can besides God if you are truthful."

11:13    Or do they say: "He has invented it!" Say: "Then bring ten invented chapters like it, and call on whom you can besides God if you are truthful."

Nowhere does the Quran recommend other methods to prove its authenticity. Neither excavations, nor the story of his compilation, nor anything else. What an intellectual challenge.

Questions/Comments on the Quran / Slay the ego : verse 2:54
« on: December 08, 2019, 01:52:14 AM »

2:54    And Moses said to his people: "O my people, you have wronged yourselves by taking the calf, so repent to your Maker, and slay yourselves / ego; that is better for you with your Maker, so He would forgive you. He is the Forgiving, the Merciful."

I translate  slay yourselves by slay your ego, the false self.

To die before dying; to slay the ego is like a little death before the death of the physical body.

Like all deaths, let the ego die is very difficult to accept and to do.

The ego misleads the right path, critic, judge, denigrate, always wants to be right, to persuade himself that he is doing well...etc

Why the ego behaves so because he is afraid of dying, he constantly struggles not to die, to let his false beliefs.

Slay our ego that is better for us.

We are not the ego.

Freedom begins when we free ourselves from the ego.

Islamic Calendar & Ramadhan. / Siyam : spiritual retreat in the temples

Siyam : spiritual retreat in the temples

This article is extracted from the site Nawat

When you read eating and drinking until dawn you understand not to drink and not to eat until evening. If you were not intoxicated by your Sheikhales beliefs, you might have been able to consider, according to your verse, that Siyam means retreat in the Masajids and that only the prohibition of "approaching" women is maintained in the day.

Why then does the verse reiterate the prohibition of approaching women if "your deduction" is valid and, if it is just to clarify, why does it not also clarify it for drinking and eating?

Nowhere in the Koran is it said that one should neither drink nor eat. On the other hand, a clear definition of saum exists in the Koran and it is Issa who gives it to his mother:

19:26    "So eat and drink and be content. If you see any mortal, then say: 'I have vowed an abstinence for the Almighty, so I will not talk today to any of mankind.'"

 19:26    فكلي واشربي وقري عينا فإما ترين من البشر أحدا فقولي إني نذرت للرحمن صوما فلن أكلم اليوم إنسيا

The siyam  is, once again, a spiritual retreat where we do not speak to humans and where we spiritually isolate ourselves from their nonsense. Not to drink or to eat is a handicap in spiritual retreat.

I add if you allow, here are two verses concerning the same divine miracle concerning the prophet Zechariah and his prayer (secret according to 19-3) to have a son :

3:41    He said: "My Lord, make for me a sign." He said: "Your sign is not to speak to the people for three days except by symbol, and remember your Lord greatly, and glorify at dusk and dawn."

 3:41    قال رب اجعل لي ءاية قال ءايتك ألا تكلم الناس ثلثة أيام إلا رمزا واذكر ربك كثيرا وسبح بالعشي والإبكر

19:10    He said: "My Lord, make for me a sign." He said: "Your sign is that you will not speak to the people for three nights consecutively."

 19:10    قال رب اجعل لي ءاية قال ءايتك ألا تكلم الناس ثلث ليال سويا

The only way to consider that these two miracles are the same is to consider that Zachariah did not speak already during the day. 3 nights would be equivalent to 3 days.

Zachariah, necessarily, was necessarily already in spiritual retreat during the day.

This is confirmed by the verse:

3:39    So the angels called to him while he was standing, connecting, in the enclosure: "God gives you glad tidings of John, affirming the word from God, and a master, and steadfast, and a prophet from the upright."

3:39    فنادته الملئكة وهو قائم يصلي في المحراب أن الله يبشرك بيحيى مصدقا بكلمة من الله وسيدا وحصورا ونبيا من الصلحين

It was really Ramadan. The fact that it is the angels who speak to him is proof.

Also consider the verses:

2:183    O you who believe, fasting has been decreed for you as it was decreed for those before you, perhaps you may be righteous.

 2:183    يأيها الذين ءامنوا كتب عليكم الصيام كما كتب على الذين من قبلكم لعلكم تتقون

2:184    A few number of days. Whoever of you is ill or traveling, then the same count from different days; and as for those who can do so but with difficulty, they may redeem by feeding the needy. And whoever does good voluntarily, then it is better for him. And if you fast it is better for you if only you knew.

 2:184    أياما معدودت فمن كان منكم مريضا أو على سفر فعدة من أيام أخر وعلى الذين يطيقونه فدية طعام مسكين فمن تطوع خيرا فهو خير له وأن تصوموا خير لكم إن كنتم تعلمون

2:203    And remember God during a few number of days. Whoever hurries to two days, there is no sin upon him; and whoever delays, there is no sin upon him if he is being righteous. And be aware of God, and know that it is to Him that you will be gathered.

 2:203    واذكروا الله في أيام معدودت فمن تعجل في يومين فلا إثم عليه ومن تأخر فلا إثم عليه لمن اتقى واتقوا الله واعلموا أنكم إليه تحشرون

Comparing 2-183 and 2-203, we see, once again, that siyam is equivalent to invoking God. The marker here is the expression number of days determined (ayyam maadoudat) whose tartil shows that it appears only three times in the quran. The third is irrelevant, in verse 3-24, which speaks of a belief in a purgatory of a few days.

The expression Ayyam Maadudat means a small number of 3 to 10 days. Verse 2-203 expresses the idea that it is not within two days.

Do not eat and drink if you want. But it is not the quran that asks you.

On the other hand, the periods of Hajj and Siyam are ten days and merge:

 89:2    And ten nights.

2:196    And conclude the hadj / debate and the visit for God. But, if you are prevented, then provide what offering is affordable; and do not shave your heads until the offering reaches its destination. Whoever of you is ill or has an ailment to his head, then he may redeem by fasting or giving a charity or a rite. When you are secure, then whoever enjoys the visit until the hajj/debate, then he shall provide what offering is affordable; but for he who cannot find anything, then the fast of three days during the hajj and seven when he returns; this will make a complete ten-this is for those whose family is not present at the Restricted Temple. And be aware of God, and know that God is severe in retribution.

Verse 2-196 is clear. The hajj (debater) is exempt from Siyam. On the other hand, one who has gone only as a visitor or merchant (Umra ila el Hajj) can get by with an offering. If he does not have the means, then Siyam is his. This makes him 3 days on the spot, 0 during the trip and 7 on his return. Either the ten requested in all. This is not a calculating exercise to show that God knows how to add 3 and 7.

The Quran clearly defines what the sacred night is. It's the night the angels go down.

97:3    The Night of Decree / alqadr is better than one thousand shahr.

97:4    The angels and the Spirit come down in it with the permission of their Lord to carry out every matter.

This is the relationship between the angels and Ramadan. That's why I said that the announcement made to Zechariah was indeed to the Ramadan Shar.

If the angels spoke to him, it was the night of Qadr.

As luck would have it, we also find the ten days in the verse:

7:142    And We set a meeting for Moses in thirty nights, and We complemented them with ten, so the appointed time of his Lord was set at forty nights. And Moses said to his brother Aaron: "Be my successor with my people and be upright, and do not follow the path of the corrupters."

Another revelation (necessarily the night of Qadr) with ten clear days. It is also far from being an addition exercise in the Qur'an to show that 30 + 10 = 40.

What is more logical in your opinion, do not eat, do not drink for a month, or honor the Koran the day it was revealed by spending 10 days of meditation or ten days of debate?

Siyam is dedicated / vowed to God :

19:26    "So eat and drink and be content. If you see any mortal, then say: 'I have vowed an abstinence for the Almighty, so I will not talk today to any of mankind.'"

7:31    O Children of Adam, dress nicely at every temple, and eat and drink and do not indulge; He does not like the indulgers.

Siyam as purification of these errors / kaffarah :
3 days or 2 consecutive full moons, or equivalency in siyam in the case of
 is decreed to have God's forgiveness and  repentance.

I think there is a common root between (sama / sawm / siyam) and (summun / dumb) or it's just a coincidence ?

The expected goal of siyam is to protect our self from / la3allaqum tattaqoon / perhaps you may be righteous / pious.

My first spiritual retreat the 5th of July 2020, first night of siyam, God willing

Questions/Comments on the Quran / To submit - to believe - Trust in God
« on: December 05, 2019, 04:55:23 PM »

When we let go with god's permission, we feel peace in our heart.
We let ourselves be guided by our educator / Rabb.

Like the horse following the path indicated by his rider.

We are in total acceptance of what is happening.

All internal struggle disappears.

11:56    "I have placed my trust in God, my Lord and your Lord. There is not a creature except He will seize it by its forelock. My Lord is on a straight path."

14:11    Their messengers said: "We are indeed mortals like you, but God will bestow His grace upon whom He pleases from His servants. And it is not up to us to bring you proof except with the permission of God. And in God the believers should place their trust."

14:12    "And why should we not place our trust in God, when He has guided us in our paths. And we will be patient to the harm you inflict upon us. And in God those who trust should place their trust."


After reading the articles of this site in French that I found interesting:

I wonder about the definition of siyam and have severl questions about the verse 2:187

God explains what is allowed during the night and what we should not do during our spiritual retreat in almasajid.

Is the instructions “until the white thread is distinct from  the black thread of dawn", concerns both “to approach your women sexually » and eat and drink ?

Is this part of the verse «  God knew that you used to betray your souls » concerns both “to approach your women sexually »  and eat and drink ?

During the spiritual retreat in almasajid, why god did not specify both do not approach them (your women sexually) and don’t eat and drink ?

2:187    It has been made permissible for you during the night of siyam / fasting to approach your women sexually. They are a garment for you and you are a garment for them. God knew that you used to betray your souls, so He has redeemed you, and forgiven you; now you may approach them and seek what God has written for you. And you may eat and drink until the white thread is distinct from the black thread of dawn; then you shall complete alssiyama / the fast until night; and do not approach them while you are devoted in the temples. These are the boundaries of God, so do not transgress them. It is thus that God clarifies His revelations to the people that they may be righteous.

The spiritual retreat during siyam serves to receive divine guidance as explained in the following verse “and magnify God for what He has guided you to »

2:185    Shahr ramadhan, in which the Qur'an was sent down as a guide to the people and a clarification of the guidance and the criterion. Those of you who have witnessed alshshahra shall yasumhu / fast it; and whoever is ill or traveling, then the same count from different days. God wants to bring you ease and not to bring you hardship; and so that you may complete the count, and magnify God for what He has guided you to, and that you may be thankful.

I am convinced of the interest of fasting for health. I do not think that fasting is the purpose of siyam
Spiritual retreat for a fixed number of days is crucial to receive guidance, to connect to God.

Thank you for your debate on this topic

Questions/Comments on the Quran / salat upon the prophet
« on: November 29, 2019, 11:11:48 AM »

#الصلاة على النبي ليس معناها مجرد ترديد كلمتين مثل البغبغان. الصلاة  هدفها الخروج من ظلمات الباطل الى نور الحق:

هُوَ الَّذِي يُصَلِّي عَلَيْكُمْ وَمَلَائِكَتُهُ لِيُخْرِجَكُم مِّنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ ۚ وَكَانَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَحِيمًا
 [الجزء: ٢٢ | الأحزاب ٣٣ | الآية: ٤٣]

ومصطلح "سلموا تسليما"  في الآية ليس معناه التحية ولكن معناه الرضوخ رضوخاً كاملاً:

فَلَا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّىٰ يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَجِدُوا فِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَرَجًا مِّمَّا قَضَيْتَ وَيُسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
 [الجزء: ٥ | النساء ٤ | الآية: ٦٥]

إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
 [الجزء: ٢٢ | الأحزاب ٣٣ | الآية: ٥٦]

وبالتالي قول "صلى الله عليه وسلَم"  يكون معناه "صلى الله عليه ورضخ" ... وبالتاكيد سبحانه وتعالى لا يرضخ لأي شخص مهما كان... ولذلك الآية الكريمة لا تقول ان الله وملائكته يسلمون تسليما.

Google translation :

Salat upon the Prophet does not mean merely repeating two words like the parrot. Salataims to get out of the darkness of falsehood to the light of truth:

33:43    He is the One who connects towards you, along with His angels, to bring you out of darkness and into the light. And He is ever Merciful towards the believers.

In the verse, the term "salute" is not a greeting, but a complete submission:

4:65    No, by your Lord, they will not believe until they make you judge in what they dispute with each other, then they will not find in their souls any animosity for what you have decided, and they will comply completely.

33:56    God and His angels connect towards the prophet. O you who believe, you shall connect towards him, and comply completely.

Thus, saying "peace be upon him" means "peace be upon him and acquiesced" ... And certainly Almighty does not bow to anyone no matter what ... Therefore the verse does not say that God and his angels surrender.


Any good befalls you is due to God , any evil befalls you is due to yourself, all is from God.

4:78    Wherever you may be, death will find you, even if you are in fortified towers. If any good befalls them, they say: "This is from God," and if any evil befalls them, they say: "This is from you!" Say: "All is from God;" what is wrong with these people, they barely understand any narrative!

4:79    Any good that befalls you is due to God, and any evil that befalls you is due to yourself. We have sent you as a messenger to the people and God is enough as a witness.

Questions/Comments on the Quran / Satan's affliction in ayat 38:41-42
« on: November 21, 2019, 08:00:51 AM »

How do you understand these 2 verses :

38:41    And recall Our servant Job, when he called upon his Lord: "The devil / satan has afflicted me with an illness and pain."

38:42    "Rapidly move with your foot, here is a cold spring to wash with and to drink."

Thanks for your input.


6:146    And for those who are Jewish We have made forbidden all that have undivided hoofs; and from the cattle and the sheep We made forbidden their fat except what is attached to the back, or entrails, or mixed with bone. That is a punishment for their rebellion, and We are truthful.

In this surah, we read shuhooma  al-baqar
                                   fats             of  cattle   (plural form)

                                   shahma     al-baqarah (singular form)
                                   the fat       of cow

                                  shuhooma al-ghanam
                                  fats             of  sheep (plural form)

                                 shahma     al-ma3z (singular form)
                                 the fat       of goat (for example)

This grammatical form is same as
                                lahma        al-khinzeer (singular form)
                                the meat   of pig 

                               luhooma    al-khanazeer (plural form)
                               meats        of pigs

16:115    He has only forbidden for you that which is already dead, and blood, and the meat of pig, and what was sacrificed with to other than God. But whoever is forced to, without seeking disobedience or transgression, then God is Forgiver, Merciful.

al-baqar /al- baqarah,  al-ghanam / al-ma3z,  al-khinzeer / al-khanazeer / al-qiradah (monkeys) are nouns of animals.
