Uthman ibn Affan (radiAllahu 'anhu) on the Language of the Qur'an

Narrated Anas (raa): Uthman (radiAllaahu ‘anhu) called Zaid bin Thabit (radiAllaahu ‘anhu), Abdullah bin Az-Zubair (radiAllaahu ‘anhu), Said bin Al-’As (radiAllaahu ‘anhu) and ‘AbdurRahman bin Al-Harith bin Hisham (radiAllaahu ‘anhu), and then they wrote the manuscripts of the Holy Qur’an in the form of book in several copies.

‘Uthman (radiAllaahu ‘anhu) said to the three Quraishi persons.

"If you differ with Zaid bin Thabit (radiAllaahu ‘anhu) on any point of the Quran, then write it in the language of Quraish, as the Quran was revealed in their language."

So they acted accordingly. [Zaid bin Thabit (radiAllaahu ‘anhu) was an Ansari and not from Quraish].

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

Ne bilir okumayan Mushaf-ı hüsnün şerhin

Yere gökten ne için indiğini Kur’an’ın

Ey sevgili!… Senin güzellik kitabının şerhini okumayan kişi
Kur’an-ı Kerîm’in gökten yere niçin indirildiğini nereden bilsin

…demons. In Islam. I mean I guess you could see djinns as SORT of having a similar place but whaaaaaaaaat

Well, I mean, Shaitan is a thing, but even there it’s much different than Satan in Christianity, and, as I recall, kind of…ambiguous? Is it a person/entity, is it just like a force, is it part of the nature of humans or something external to it? All of the above? Like, Iblis is referred to as Shaitan, IIRC, but not every reference to Shaitan is a reference to Iblis, necessarily.

But yeah, I agree with you, too. I think this guy was equating jinn with demons, and knew the general Iblis narrative so he figured that jinn=demons=fallen angels, which is just so so wrong. And rather than reviewing his sources before answering a question, just kind of ran with it, and stuck to his guns when he was corrected.

Membaca Al-Qur'an

Mungkin, 
membaca Al-Qur’an memang merupakan perjalanan kehidupan tersendiri. 
Sangat personal. 

Ada ayat-ayat yang membuat kita bergetar dan meneteskan air mata.
Ada ayat-ayat yang membuat kita tersentak dan berasa ditampar-tampar. 
Ada ayat-ayat yang mengelus hati kita, merasakan luas sungguh kasih sayang Allah yang Maha Pengasih.
Dan ada ayat-ayat yang bagai memeluk kita
Menguatkan di saat-saat sulit, 
Menghangatkan di kelam malam titik nol kilometer kehidupan,
Meneguhkan di setiap liku dan persimpangan,
Mengingatkan kita, lagi dan lagi: betapa dunia ini hanyalah sementara. 
Betapa segala getir ini akan berlalu, insya Allah. 

Dan saat ayat terakhir An-Naas dilantunkan, 
Saat mushaf kembali dibuka dari lembar pertama,

Kita kembali membaca 
dengan mata yang baru, 
pemikiran yang baru, dan pencerahan yang baru. 
Setiap ayat terasa segar 
Dan perlu waktu untuk direnungkan. 

Ah, satu perjalanan baru kembali dimulai…

Jika kau dapati tanganmu serasa tertahan ketika membuka mushaf Al Qur’an, lisanmu terasa berat untuk berdzikir, maka percayalah bahwa saat itu hatimu tengah berat karena dosa, dan ia memberatkan anggota badanmu pula untuk beramal.
