وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى النَّاسِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ لَا يَشْكُرُونَ

Indeed Your Lord is exceedingly bountiful to mankind. Yet most of them do not give thanks.

— Surah An-Naml [27:73]

Saya suka dan merupakan salah satu paporit saya karena menurut saya Dr Zakir Naik itu cerdas… Semoga Allah selalu menjaga Beliau dan keluarganya

Dr Zakir Naik mengungkapkan bahwa jumlah misionaris saat ini mencapai satu juta orang.
Di antara mereka, ada yang tugasnya berkeliling untuk mendangkalkan aqidah umat Islam.

Salah satu caranya, memulai dengan mengajukan pertanyaan-pertanyaan ini.

Pertanyaan Pertama

“Apakah dijelaskan dalam Al Quran bahwa Injil adalah firman Tuhan?”

Biasanya muslim yang ditanya demikian akan langsung menjawab, “Ya, disebutkan”

“Kalau begitu mengapa engkau tidak mengikuti Injil?”

Pertanyaan Kedua

“Berapa banyak nama Nabimu (Muhammad shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) disebutkan dalam Al Quran?”

Muslim yang tahu akan menjawab, “Lima kali. Empat kali dengan nama Muhammad dan satu kali dengan nama Ahmad”

“Berapa banyak nama Yesus Kristus (Isa ‘alaihi salam) disebutkan dalam Al Quran?”

Muslim yang tidak tahu, akan diberitahu oleh misionaris yang mempelajari Al Quran itu.
Bahwa Isa disebutkan 25 kali.

“Mana yang lebih besar, Muhammad yang disebutkan lima kali atau Yesus yang disebutkan 25 kali dalam Al Quran?” demikian pertanyaan misionaris berikutnya.

Pertanyaan Ketiga

“Apakah Nabi Muhammad punya ayah dan punya ibu?”

“Ya”

“Apakah Isa (Yesus) dilahirkan dengan ibu dan ayah?”

“Isa memiliki ibu tetapi tidak memiliki ayah”

“Mana yang lebih hebat, orang yang dilahirkan dengan cara biasa dengan adanya ibu dan ayah atau yang terlahir tanpa ayah?”

Pertanyaan Keempat

“Apakah Nabi Muhammad memiliki mukjizat?”

“Ya”“Apakah Nabi Muhammad bisa menghidupkan orang mati?”

“Tidak” (Karena dalam Al Quran dan hadits tidak disebutkan mukjizat itu)

“Apakah Isa bisa menghidupkan orang mati?”

“Ya” (salah satu mukjizat Nabi Isa, dengan izin Allah, bisa menghidupkan orang mati)

“Mana yang lebih hebat, yang tidak bisa menghidupkan orang mati atau yang bisa menghidupkan orang mati?”

Pertanyaan kelima

“Apakah Nabimu Muhammad sekarang secara fisik meninggal atau hidup?”

“Meninggal”

“Apakah Yesus (Isa) sekarang meninggal atau masih hidup?”

“Masih hidup” “Mana yang lebih hebat, yang sudah meninggal atau yang masih hidup hingga sekarang?”

Pertanyaan-pertanyaan itu membuat banyak muslim yang tidak memahami Al Quran menjadi bingung.
Namun, sebenarnya semuanya hanya pertanyaan licik misionaris. Jawabannya sudah ada dalam Al Quran.

Jawaban atas Pertanyaan Misionaris (1)

Di antara cara untuk mendangkalkan aqidah, bahkan sampai memurtadkan, misionaris menggunakan sejumlah pertanyaan.

Dr Zakir Naik membeberkan lima pertanyaan utama yang biasa dipakai para misionaris.
Berikut ini pertanyaan tersebut dan jawabannya:

Pertanyaan Pertama

“Apakah dijelaskan dalam Al Quran bahwa Injil adalah firman Tuhan?”

Biasanya muslim yang ditanya demikian akan langsung menjawab, “Ya, disebutkan”

“Kalau begitu mengapa engkau tidak mengikuti Injil?”

Jawaban atas Pertanyaan Pertama

Al Quran memang mengatakan Injil adalah kitab Allah sebagaimana Taurat juga kitab Allah.
Al Quran membenarkan keduanya, sebagaimana tercantum dalam Surat Ali Imran ayat 3.

نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَأَنْزَلَ التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنْجِيلَ

“Dia menurunkan Al Kitab (Al Quran) kepadamu dengan sebenarnya; membenarkan kitab yang telah diturunkan sebelumnya dan menurunkan Taurat dan Injil”
(QS. Ali Imran: 3)

Jadi Injil dibenarkan Al Quran sebagai kitab yang telah diturunkan sebelumnya.
Bukan berarti harus diikuti, sebagaimana Taurat juga dibenarkan sebagai kitab yang telah diturunkan sebelumnya tetapi tidak untuk diikuti.
Bahkan seharusnya, orang yang percaya pada Taurat dan Injil, mereka mengikuti Al Quran sebagaimana orang yang berpegang pada sesuatu akan mengikuti update terbaru dari sesuatu itu.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ آَمِنُوا بِمَا نَزَّلْنَا مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا مَعَكُمْ مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ نَطْمِسَ وُجُوهًا فَنَرُدَّهَا عَلَى أَدْبَارِهَا أَوْ نَلْعَنَهُمْ كَمَا لَعَنَّا أَصْحَابَ السَّبْتِ وَكَانَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ مَفْعُولًا

“Hai orang-orang yang telah diberi Alkitab, berimanlah kamu kepada apa yang telah Kami turunkan (Al Quran) yang membenarkan kitab yang ada pada kamu…”
(QS. An Nisa’: 47)

Selain itu, Injil yang dibenarkan Al Quran adalah Injil yang otentik.
Injil pada zaman Nabi Isa sebelum diubah oleh para pemalsu.
Adapun Injil yang ada sekarang, telah beberapa kali mengalami perubahan, misalnya pada Persidangan Nicea pada tahun 325 M.
Pada tahun 1881 dirilis Injil King James Version (KJV) yang merevisi beberapa hal yang dianggap bertentangan.
Pada tahun 1952 dirilis Revised Standard Version (RSV) atas dasar ditemukannya beberapa cacat pada KJV.

Pertanyaan Kedua

“Berapa banyak nama Nabimu (Muhammad shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) disebutkan dalam Al Quran?”

Muslim yang tahu akan menjawab, “Lima kali.
Empat kali dengan nama Muhammad dan satu kali dengan nama Ahmad”

“Berapa banyak nama Yesus Kristus (Isa ‘alaihi salam) disebutkan dalam Al Quran?”

Muslim yang tidak tahu, akan diberitahu oleh misionaris yang mempelajari Al Quran itu.
Bahwa Isa disebutkan 25 kali.

“Mana yang lebih besar, Muhammad yang disebutkan lima kali atau Yesus yang disebutkan 25 kali dalam Al Quran?” demikian pertanyaan misionaris berikutnya.

Jawaban atas Pertanyaan Kedua

Nabi Isa ‘alaihis salam memang disebutkan dalam Al Quran lebih banyak daripada Nabi Muhammad shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam.
Namun, penyebutan yang lebih banyak itu tidak menunjukkan siapa yang lebih besar atau lebih agung.

Nabi Musa, bahkan disebutkan lebih banyak lagi.
Nama Nabi Musa disebutkan sebanyak 124 kali dalam Al Quran.
Di Surat Al Baqarah 13 kali,
di Surat Ali Imran 1 kali,
di Surat An Nisa’ 2 kali,
di Surat Al Maidah 3 kali,
di Surat Al An’am 2 kali,
di Surat Al A’raf 18 kali,
di Surat Yusuf 7 kali,
di Surat Hud 3 kali,
di Surat Ibrahim 3 kali,
di Surat Al Isra’ 2 kali,
di Surat Al Kahfi 2 kali,
di Surat Maryam 1 kali,
di Surat Thaha 16 kali,
di Surat AL Anbiya’ 1 kali,
di Surat Al Hajj 1 kali,
di Surat Al MU’minun 2 kali,
di Surat Asy Syu’ara’ 8 kali,
di Surat An Naml 3 kali,
di Surat Al Qashash 17 kali,
di Surat AL Ankabut 1 kali,
di Surat As Sajdah 1 kali,
di Surat Al Ahzab 1 kali,
di Surat Ash Shafat 2 kali,
di Surat Ghafir 5 kali,
di Surat Fushilat 1 kali,
di Surat Az Zukhruf 1 kali,
di Surat AL Ahqaf 2 kali,
di Surat Adz Dzariyat 1 kali,
di Surat An Najm 1 kali,
di Surat Ash Shaf 1 kali, dan
di Surat An Naziat 1 kali.

Nah, jika karena disebutkan lebih banyak dalam Al Quran kemudian otomatis lebih agung, apakah orang-orang Nasrani mau mengakui bahwa Nabi Musa lebih agung daripada Nabi Isa?

Bahkan, jika karena disebutkan lebih banyak dalam Al Quran kemudian dianggap menjadi Tuhan, apakah orang-orang Nasrani mau mengakui bahwa Musa adalah Tuhan?

Satu hal lagi, Al Quran hampir selalu menyebut Nabi Isa lengkap dengan bin Maryam.
Hanya 4 kali nama Nabi Isa disebut sendirian tanpa bin Maryam yaitu pada Surat Ali Imran ayat 52,
Ali Imran ayat 55,
Ali Imran ayat 59, dan
Az Zukhruf ayat 63.

Selebihnya selalu disebut Isa bin Maryam.
Untuk menegaskan bahwa Isa adalah anak Maryam, bukan anak Tuhan sebagaimana klaim kaum Nasrani.

Pertanyaan Ketiga

“Apakah Nabi Muhammad punya ayah dan punya ibu?”

“Ya”

“Apakah Isa (Yesus) dilahirkan dengan ibu dan ayah?”

“Isa memiliki ibu tetapi tidak memiliki ayah”

“Mana yang lebih hebat, orang yang dilahirkan dengan cara biasa dengan adanya ibu dan ayah atau yang terlahir tanpa ayah?”

Jawaban atas Pertanyaan Ketiga

Nabi Isa memang tidak memiliki ayah. Namun, bukan berarti lebih hebat daripada Nabi Muhammad shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam.
Apalagi jika kemudian dijadikan tuhan, sama sekali keliru.

Sekarang saya tanya, mana yang lebih hebat, Isa yang lahir tanpa ayah atau Adam yang tanpa ayah dan tanpa ibu? Jika Isa lahir tanpa ayah kemudian dijadikan tuhan, seharusnya Adam lebih berhak untuk dijadikan tuhan karena tidak memiliki ayah dan tidak memiliki ibu.

Al Quran menjelaskan penciptaan Isa dan Adam sebagai berikut:

إِنَّ مَثَلَ عِيسَى عِنْدَ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ آَدَمَ خَلَقَهُ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُ كُنْ فَيَكُونُ

“Sesungguhnya misal (penciptaan Isa di sisi Allah adalah seperti (penciptaan) Adam.
Allah menciptakan Adam dari tanah kemudian Allah berfirman kepadanya: “Jadilah” (seoang manusia), maka jadilah ia”
(QS. Ali Imran: 59)

Karena lahir tanpa ayah, orang Kristen juga menyebut Yesus anak Tuhan. Dalam Yohanes 6:67-69, Yesus disebut anak tuhan oleh Petrus. Karena disebut anak tuhan, lantas dituhankan.
Padahal ada banyak orang yang disebut “anak Tuhan” dalam Injil. Adam adalah anak Tuhan,
Efraim adalah anak Tuhan,
Ezra adalah anak Tuhan.
Semua orang yang dituntun Tuhan adalah anak-anak Tuhan.
Jadi anak Tuhan adalah kata yang digunakan dalam Injil yang artinya seseorang yang mengikuti ajaran Tuhan.
Jika orang Kristen masih ngotot menjadikan Yesus sebagai Tuhan, carilah di Injil pernyataan Yesus yang mengatakan “Akulah Tuhan” atau “Sembahlah aku.”
Niscaya tidak akan pernah ketemu.

Pertanyaan Keempat

“Apakah Nabi Muhammad memiliki mukjizat?”

“Ya”

“Apakah Nabi Muhammad bisa menghidupkan orang mati?”

“Tidak” (Karena dalam Al Quran dan hadits tidak disebutkan mukjizat itu)

“Apakah Isa bisa menghidupkan orang mati?”

“Ya” (salah satu mukjizat Nabi Isa, dengan izin Allah, bisa menghidupkan orang mati)

“Mana yang lebih hebat, yang tidak bisa menghidupkan orang mati atau yang bisa menghidupkan orang mati?”

Jawaban atas Pertanyaan Keempat

Salah satu mukjizat Nabi Isa ‘alaihis salam adalah menghidupkan orang mati.
Sebagaimana firman Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala:

وَرَسُولًا إِلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنِّي قَدْ جِئْتُكُمْ بِآَيَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ أَنِّي أَخْلُقُ لَكُمْ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ فَأَنْفُخُ فِيهِ فَيَكُونُ طَيْرًا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَأُبْرِئُ الْأَكْمَهَ وَالْأَبْرَصَ وَأُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَأُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا تَأْكُلُونَ وَمَا تَدَّخِرُونَ فِي بُيُوتِكُمْ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآَيَةً لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ

“Dan (sebagai) Rasul kepada Bani Israil (dia Isa berkata), "Aku datang kepadamu dengan sebuah tanda (mukjizat) dari Tuhanmu, yaitu aku membuatkan bagimu (sesuatu) dari tanah berbentuk seperti burung, lalu aku meniupnya, maka ia menjadi seekor burung dengan izin Allah.
Dan aku menyembuhkan orang buta sejak lahir dan orang yang berpenyakit kusta.
Dan aku menghidupkan orang mati dengan izin Allah, dan aku beritakan kepadamu apa yang kamu makan dan apa yang kamu simpan di rumahmu. Sesungguhnya pada yang demikian itu terdapat suatu tanda (kebenaran kerasulanku) bagimu, jika kamu orang beriman.”
(QS. Ali Imran: 49)

Namun ingat, yang menghidupkan orang mati itu adalah Allah.
Nabi Isa mengakuinya sendiri.
Demikian pula dalam Injil, Yesus mengakui bahwa yang menghidupkan orang mati adalah Allah.
Bukan dirinya.

Sahabatku Lazarus mati, maka kembalikanlah ruh kepadanya Tuhan “. Allah memperkenankan doanya dan berfirman, “Mintalah, sesungguhnya engkau akan memperoleh apa yang engkau minta”.
Ketika Yesus menyeru Lazarus agar keluar kepadanya, ia berkata, “Bapa, Aku mengucap syukur kepadamu, karena engkau telah mendengarkan aku.
Aku tahu, bahwa engkau selalu mendengarkan aku”
(Yohanes 11: 41-42)

Lalu besar mana mukjizat Nabi Isa dengan mukjizat Nabi Muhammad? Jika dikatakan bahwa menghidupkan orang mati adalah mukjizat terbesar Nabi Isa, ternyata dalam Injil disebutkan ada lima orang yang bisa menghidupkan orang mati.
Selain Nabi Isa (Yesus), mereka adalah Nabi Ilyas (Elia),
Nabi Ilyasa (Elisa),
Yehezkiel (seorang nabi di kalangan Nabi Israel menurut Injil), dan
Petrus.

Apakah dengan begitu, mereka semua juga dianggap sebagai Tuhan karena menurut Injil bisa menghidupkan orang mati?
Sungguh lucu.

Nah, berbeda dengan Nabi-Nabi sebelumnya yang mukjizatnya kadang serupa dengan Nabi yang lain, Rasulullah Muhammad memiliki banyak mukjizat dan yang terbesar adalah Al Qur’an.
Jika mukjizat yang lain sudah tidak bisa dilihat lagi bekasnya, Al Quran tetap ada hingga hari kiamat.

Dan Al Quran sendiri menantang siapapun di dunia ini untuk menandinginya, dan hingga saat ini tidak ada yang bisa menerima tantangan ini.

وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِمَّا نَزَّلْنَا عَلَى عَبْدِنَا فَأْتُوا بِسُورَةٍ مِنْ مِثْلِهِ وَادْعُوا شُهَدَاءَكُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ صَادِقِينَ . فَإِنْ لَمْ تَفْعَلُوا وَلَنْ تَفْعَلُوا فَاتَّقُوا النَّارَ الَّتِي وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ أُعِدَّتْ لِلْكَافِرِينَ

“Jika kamu (tetap) dalam keraguan tentang al-Qur’ân yang Kami wahyukan kepada hamba Kami (Muhammad), buatlah satu surat (saja) yang semisal al-Qur’ân itu dan ajaklah penolong-penolongmu selain Allâh, jika kamu orang-orang yang benar. Maka jika kamu tidak dapat membuat(nya), dan pasti kamu tidak akan dapat membuat(nya), peliharalah dirimu dari neraka yang bahan bakar nya manusia dan batu, (neraka itu) telah disediakan bagi orang-orang kafir.”
(QS. Al Baqarah: 23-24)

Anda berani menerima tantangan ini, Pak Misionaris?

Pertanyaan Kelima

“Apakah Nabimu Muhammad sekarang secara fisik meninggal atau hidup?”

“Meninggal”

“Apakah Yesus (Isa) sekarang meninggal atau masih hidup?”

“Masih hidup”

“Mana yang lebih hebat, yang sudah meninggal atau yang masih hidup hingga sekarang?”

Jawaban atas Pertanyaan Kelima

Pertanyaan ini justru akan meruntuhkan doktrin terbesar Kristen.

Dalam Al Quran memang dinyatakan bahwa Nabi Isa ‘alaihis salam tidak disalib.
Yang disalib adalah orang yang diserupakan dengan Nabi Isa.

وَقَوْلِهِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَا الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَكِنْ شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ اخْتَلَفُوا فِيهِ لَفِي شَكٍّ مِنْهُ مَا لَهُمْ بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ إِلَّا اتِّبَاعَ الظَّنِّ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ يَقِينًا

Dan karena ucapan mereka: “Sesungguhnya Kami telah membunuh Al Masih, Isa putra Maryam, Rasul Allah”, padahal mereka tidak membunuhnya dan tidak (pula) menyalibnya, tetapi (yang mereka bunuh ialah) orang yang diserupakan dengan Isa bagi mereka. Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang berselisih paham tentang (pembunuhan) Isa, benar-benar dalam keragu-raguan tentang yang dibunuh itu.
Mereka tidak mempunyai keyakinan tentang siapa yang dibunuh itu, kecuali mengikuti persangkaan belaka, mereka tidak (pula) yakin bahwa yang mereka bunuh itu adalah Isa.
(QS. An Nisa’: 157)

Jika orang Kristen mengatakan Yesus masih hidup, berarti yang disalib bukan Yesus.
Sama seperti firman Allah dalam Al Quran tersebut.
Namun jika Yesus tidak mati disalib, tidak ada konsep penebusan dosa sebagaimana yang dijadikan pijakan gereja saat ini.
Jadi Anda meyakini yang mana?
Yesus masih hidup karena tidak disalib atau Yesus mati disalib?
Anda pasti akan bingung sendiri.

Adapun pertanyaan siapa yang lebih hebat, orang yang meninggal atau orang yang masih hidup, bukanlah pertanyaan yang tepat.
Anda masih hidup, Nabi Musa telah meninggal.
Siapa yang lebih hebat?

Khusus untuk Nabi Isa yang diangkat Allah dan nanti akan diturunkan menjelang hari kiamat, itu bukanlah kehebatan Nabi Isa atas Nabi Muhammad namun semata-mata atas kehendak Allah dalam rangka menegaskan kesalahan orang-orang yang menganggapnya sebagai Tuhan.

لَيْسَ بَيْنِى وَبَيْنَهُ نَبِىٌّ – يَعْنِى عِيسَى – وَإِنَّهُ نَازِلٌ فَإِذَا رَأَيْتُمُوهُ فَاعْرِفُوهُ رَجُلٌ مَرْبُوعٌ إِلَى الْحُمْرَةِ وَالْبَيَاضِ بَيْنَ مُمَصَّرَتَيْنِ كَأَنَّ رَأْسَهُ يَقْطُرُ وَإِنْ لَمْ يُصِبْهُ بَلَلٌ فَيُقَاتِلُ النَّاسَ عَلَى الإِسْلاَمِ فَيَدُقُّ الصَّلِيبَ وَيَقْتُلُ الْخِنْزِيرَ وَيَضَعُ الْجِزْيَةَ

“Tidak ada nabi (yang hidup) antara masaku dan Isa.
Sungguh, kelak ia akan turun, jika kalian melihatnya maka kenalilah.
Ia adalah seorang laki-laki yang sedang (tidak tinggi dan tidak terlalu pendek), berkulit merah keputih-putihan, beliau memakai di antara dua kain berwarna sedikit kuning.
Seakan rambut kepala beliau menetes meski tidak basah.
Beliau akan memerangi manusia hingga mereka masuk ke dalam Islam, beliau akan menghancurkan salib, membunuh babi dan menghapus jizyah”
(HR. Abu Daud; shahih)

anonymous asked:

What scientific proof do we have that the Quran is from god?

As Salamu Alaikum ♥

I love this question ♥

Here are some of the miracles, please click on the link at the bottom of this post for more ♥

Please note the Quran came down over 1400 years ago, before the means of technology to find these miracles named in the Quran, by man ♥

1) It says in the Quran:  

 "By heaven furnished with paths;“
Quran (Surat adh-Dhariyat, 7)

As we know planets, including Earth, move in an orbit/path around the sun ♥

2) THE RATIO OF THE SEA TO THE LAND ♥

The ratio of the appearances of the words “sea” and “land” in the Qur’an is identical to the ratio between sea and land in modern science. The continents had not yet been discovered at the time the Qur’an was sent down, and it was impossible to determine the ratio between the land and sea. Even such a large continent as America was only discovered in the 15th century.

The word “land” appears 13 times in the Qur’an, while “sea” appears 32 times. These numbers total 45. If we divide the number of references to land in the Qur’an, 13, by 45, the result is 28.8888888889%. When we divide the number of references to sea in the Quran, 32, by 45, the result is 71.1111111111%. these ratios are the exact ones that apply between water and dry land on Earth.

The repetition of these words in the Qur’an may be an indication that the Earth is 71% covered in water and 29% in dry land. (Allah knows the truth.) It has only been possible to arrive at this ratio in the present day, thanks to satellite photos and computer calculations.Number of times the word “land” appears in the Qur’an = 13Number of times the word “sea” appears in the Qur’an = 32Proportion of dry land to sea covering the Earth = 13/45 = 29%Proportion of sea to dry land on Earth = 32/45 = 71%

3) GENDER AND THE 23rd CHROMOSOME PAIR ♥

The genetic make-up of human beings and other living things depends on their chromosomes and the genetic data in these chromosomes in DNA. Gender is dependent on the 23rd chromosome pair. In other words, the difference between a man and a woman stems from the 23rd chromosome pair. If a person’s 23rd chromosome id expressed in the form XX she is female, and if in the form XY, then he is male.

The Qur’an makes reference to the 23rd chromosome that determines the difference between male and female thus: The word “man” and the word “woman” both appear 23 times in the Qur’an. This discovery about chromosomes made only recently was reported hundreds of years beforehand in the Qur’an by way of the number 23, that which concerns the basic difference between male and female. (Allah knows the truth.)The words “man” and “woman” both appear 23 times in the Qur’an. The 23rd chromosome is the main element that determines an individual’s gender.

4) THE GENETIC CODE OF THE BEE ♥

All the bees in the world have the same number of chromosomes, and that never changes. Male and female animals generally have the same number of chromosomes. But the bee is slightly different. Because the male bee has 16 single chromosomes and the female bee 16 pairs.

The bee is thus different in this respect, that of chromosome number. This difference is indicated in the Qur’an thus: (Allah knows the truth.) The Surah (Chapter) “Nahl,” meaning bee, is the 16th Surah (Chapter) of the Qur’an. And 16 is the number of chromosomes these animals possess.Surat an-Nahl, meaning “Bee,” is the 16th Surah (Chapter).

The bee has 16 chromosomes.

5) THE INVENTION OF TELEVISION ♥

Television transmissions take place by electromagnetic waves travelling at the speed of light reaching our homes. Television waves are so fast that live transmissions from many kilometers away can be made almost instantaneously. Surat an-Naml of the Qur’an describes how the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) had the throne of a queen in a far-distant country brought to him instantaneously in a miraculous manner, in a manner reminiscent of the above technology:

He who possessed knowledge of the Book said, 

‘I will bring it to you before your glance returns to you.’And when he saw it standing firmly in his presence, he said, ‘This is part of my Lord’s favor to test me to see if I will give thanks or show ingratitude…’
(Surat an-Naml, 40)

This verse immediately puts one in mind of teleportation or image transmission (television). Some letters in Surat an-Naml in which this phenomenon is described come together in a mysterious manner to comprise the word “television.”    The letters that constitute the word television appear side by side, from left to right, in verse 17 of Surat an-Naml, which refers to the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). The word television is written and pronounced in more or less the same way in Turkish, English, Arabic and other languages.

Looking at the sequence of letters here and the passages cited, we see a miracle that cannot possibly be explained in terms of chance. At the same time, each one of these instances is a sign for those who study the Qur’an that still grater mysteries may lie concealed within it.

In one verse, our Almighty Lord says this of the Holy Qur’an:

If all the trees on earth were pens and all the sea, with seven more seas besides, was ink Allah’s words still would not run dry. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. (Surah Luqman, 27)


For more Miracles in the Quran (as I have not even scratched the surface), please visit the following website:
http://miraclesofthequran.com

(information in this post was taken straight from the above mentioned website)

The more distressful the affairs get, the more victory is near. Because Allaah (Mighty and Majestic) said in His book, “is not He (better than your gods) Who responds to the distressed one, when he calls Him, and Who removes the evil."1 Therefore, ever ease is after hardship; rather, indeed hardship is fraught with two eases: ease before and ease after it comes. Allaah (The High) said, "So verily, with the hardship, there is relief. So verily, with the hardship, there is relief."2

Di buka dengan sebuah surat Quran An naml ayat 27, tentang sebaik-baik menerima kabar.

“Bahwa burung Hud hud pun sejatinya tidak akan berbohong pada baginda nabi Sulaiman mengenai kabar yang ia bawa, bahwa di negri sebrang sana ada seorang ratu Balqis dan kaumnya. Namun, baginda nabi Sulaiman tetap bertanya tentang kebenaran kabar yang Hud hud bawa, menanyakan lagi apakah benar atau tidaknya”

Mari lebih berhati-hati dalam menerima kabar, baik ataupun buruknya sebuah kabar bukankah lebih berkah jika ada tabayyun ?

— 

Mari belajar membiasakan tabayyun. Bukan kah sebaik-baik muslim yang selamat nan terjaga dari tangan dan lisannya ?

Assalamu alaikum. Just wondering if you could recommend reputable scholars who do tafsir of the Quran. I used to watch a lot of tafsir videos from nouman ali khan, but my understanding is that he is questionable, therefore is it possible his tafsir is also questionable? May Allah reward you for answering all the questions

Wa ‘alaik as-ṣalām wa Raḥmatullāh.

There are many authentic resources that are available and easily accessible to us, wa Lillāhil-Ḥamd, and authentic tafaṣīr are no exception. Please bear in mind and take full consideration to the fact that the uprightness and reliability of the teacher is as important as what is being taught (e.g. tafṣīr, ‘aqīdah, fiqh, etc.). The Imām of Dār al-Ḥijrah, Mālik Ibn Anāṣ (d.179Ḥ) said, “Indeed, this knowledge (i.e. al-Islām) is your flesh and blood, and you will be asked about it on the Day of Judgment, so look to whom you take (knowledge) from.” 

Shaikh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728Ḥ) on the Principles of Tafṣīr taught by Ustāẓ Abul-’Abbās Mūsā Richardson. 

Tafsīr of Imām Ibn Kathīr (d.774Ḥ) taught by Ustāẓ Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Ibn Aḥmad. 

Tafṣīr of Shaikh ‘Abdur-Raḥmān Ibn Nāṣir as-Sa’dī (d.1376Ḥ) taught by Ustāẓ Abul-’Abbās Mūsā Richardson:

Tafṣīr of Shaikh Muḥammad Ibn Ṣālih al-’Uthaimīn (d.1420Ḥ), the student of Shaikh ‘Abdur-Raḥmān as-Sa’dī, taught by Ustāẓ Abul-’Abbās Mūsā Richardson:

Classes that contain multiple exegeses of the Qur’ān taught by Ustāẓ Abul-’Abbās Mūsā Richardson: 

Trusted sources: SalafiSounds.comMirāth al-’Anbiyā Publications, Bakkah.net (study material), Al-Masjid al-Awwal Pittsburgh, and The Reign of Islāmic Da’wah (as some of the tafṣīr classes of Ustāẓ Abul-’Abbās Mūsā Richardson are delivered at al-Masjid al-Furqān, TROID, via. Tele-Link). 


On to Nouman Ali Khan (we ask Allaah to guide him): he has many errors to his name and by extension to that, his institute and tafṣīr program(s). He has explicitly lied upon the Messenger of Allaah (ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam) and concocted a fictitious story in mockery of a Companion (raḍi Allaahu ta’āla anhu), referring to him as “Pokieman,” only then to use his teacher (which he refuses to name) as the scapegoat that narrated it to him. The subject of ‘aqīdah is a constant non-issue to Nouman Ali Khan, while he encourages his followers to look for “palindromes” in the Qur’ān which he calls miracles. He uses the tafṣīr of Mu’tazilite az-Zamaksharī in his classes to an audience of unsuspecting Muslims, and slanders an Imām of tafṣīr, Ibn Jarīr at-Ṭabarī (d.310Ḥ). Nouman Ali Khan is not qualified nor a trustworthy authority to knowledge in our Religion no matter how many schemes try to market to his followers that he is a “Qur’ān Expert,” and we ask Allaah that He guides him to the truth, to sincere repentance, and to distance him from the filth of innovations and its people. 

Other key factors to understand:

We ask Allaah Subḥānahu wa Ta’āla to make us firm upon His Magnificent Religion and to distance us from the filth of ash-Shaḥawāt and the misleading misguidance of Shubuḥāt.

Types of KUFR

(Every Muslim must know these to help from falling into these destructive beliefs)

1. Kufr ul-‘Inad: Disbelief out of stubborness. This applies to someone who knows the truth and admits to knowing the truth and admits to knowing it with his tongue, but refuses to accept it and refrains from making a declaration. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Throw into Hell every stubborn disbeliever.” [Surah Qaf (50), ayah 24]

2. Kufr ul-Inkar: Disbelief out of denial. This applies to someone who denies with both heart and tongue. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “They recognize the favors of Allah, yet they deny them. Most of them are disbelievers.” [Surah Nahl (16), ayah 83]

3. Kufr ul-Kibr: Disbelief out of arrogance and pride. The disbelief by the devils (e.g. Iblis) is an example of this type of kufr.

4. Kufr ul-Juhud: Disbelief out of rejection.This applies to someone who aknowledges the truth in his heart, but rejects it with his tongue. This types of kufr is applicable to those who calls themselves Muslims but who reject any necessary and accepted norms of Islam such as salat and zakat. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “They denied them (i.e. the signs) even though their hearts believed in them, out of spite and arrogance.” [Surah Naml (27), ayah 14]

5. Kufr ul-Nifaq: Disbelief out of hypocrisy.This applies to someone who pretends to be a believer but conceals his disbelief. Such a person is called a munafiq or hypocrite. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Verily the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of Hell. You will find no one to help them.” [SurahAn-Nisa (4), ayah 145]

6. Kufr ul-Istihal: Disbelief out of trying to make haram into halal. This applies to someone who accepts as lawful (halal) that which Allah has made unlawful (haram) like alcohol or adultery. Only Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, has the prerogative to make things halal and haram and those who seek to interfere with His right are like rivals to Him and therefore fall outside the boundries of faith.

7. Kufr ul-Kurh: Disbelief out of detesting any of Allah’s Commands. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Perdition (destruction) has been consigned to those who disbelieve and He will render their actions void. This is because they are averse to that which Allah has revealed so He has made their actions fruitless.” [Surah Muhammad (47), ayah 8-9]

8. Kufr ul-Istihzaha: Disbelief due to mockery and derision. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Say: Was it at Allah, His signs and His apostles that you were mocking? Make no excuses. You have disbelieved after you have believed.” [Surah Taubah (9), ayah 65-66]

9. Kufr ul-I'radh: Disbelief due to avoidance. This applies to those who turn away and avoid the truth. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “And who is more unjust than he who is reminded of his Lord’s Signs but then turns away from them. Then he forgets what he has sent forward (for the Day of Judgment).” [Surah Kahf (18), ayah 57]

10. Kufr ul-Istibdal: Disbelief because of trying to substitute Allah’s Laws. This could take the form of (a) rejection of Allah’s Law (shari'ah) without denying it, (b) denial of Allah’s law and therefore rejecting it, or © substituting Allah’s laws with man-made laws. Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Or have they partners with Allah who have instituted for them a religion which Allah has not allowed.” [Surah Shura (42), ayah 8] Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, “Say not concerning that which your tongues put forth falsely (that) is lawful and this is forbidden so as to invent a lie against Allah. Verily, those who invent a lie against Allah will never prosper.” [Surah Nahl (16), ayah 116

ASALAAAAAAM ALAYKUM !!!! 😊😊😊😊😊 I really want to send my friend a super inspirational and uplifting and motivational QUR'AN ayah that will make them feel special and loved by Allah swt and just great!!! Please do you know any good ones ????? Jazak Allah kheyr ! ❤ may Allah bless u TONS sis ! ameen

Wa Alaikumussalaam habibti

Jzakallahu khairan wa ameen.

Sorry for the late reply. I had to think about some Quran verses that personally speak volumes to me. It’s all about reading the Quran for one’s self to find peace and contentment in it. This is the first thing you should recommend your friends.

I recommend Surah Taha, Surah Yusuf, Surah Rahman, Surah Duha and Al-Inshirah

As to the verses. Many ayat behold a lot of tranquility for the believers. Some might not speak immediately to someone, but once you understand them you really feel the love of Allah. Please note that every verse has also a context it is in. So please do consider also reading the whole surah of the Tafsir for them. There’s a lot of wisdom inside. (There are more than I am able to list and they are not in some sort of order)

Surah Taha, Verse 1:
طه

Ta Ha.

مَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْقُرْآنَ لِتَشْقَىٰ

We have not revealed the Quran to you that you may be unsuccessful.

إِلَّا تَذْكِرَةً لِّمَن يَخْشَىٰ

Nay, it is a reminder to him who fears:

تَنزِيلًا مِّمَّنْ خَلَقَ الْأَرْضَ وَالسَّمَاوَاتِ الْعُلَى

A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens.

الرَّحْمَٰنُ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ اسْتَوَىٰ

The Beneficent Allah is firm in power.

لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَمَا تَحْتَ الثَّرَىٰ

His is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth and what is between them two and what is beneath the ground.

وَإِن تَجْهَرْ بِالْقَوْلِ فَإِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ السِّرَّ وَأَخْفَى

And if you utter the saying aloud, then surely He knows the secret, and what is yet more hidden.

اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ لَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ

Allah– there is no god but He; His are the very best names.

———–
AL-FATH , Verse 4:
هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ فِي قُلُوبِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لِيَزْدَادُوا إِيمَانًا مَّعَ إِيمَانِهِمْ وَلِلَّهِ جُنُودُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا

He it is Who sent down tranquillity into the hearts of the believers that they might have more of faith added to their faith– and Allah’s are the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is Knowing, Wise

——–

Surah Adh-Dhariyat, Verse 50:
فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ إِنِّي لَكُم مِّنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ

Therefore fly to Allah, surely I am a plain warner to you from Him

——


Surah Al-Hadid, Verse 21:
سَابِقُوا إِلَىٰ مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا كَعَرْضِ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ أُعِدَّتْ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ ذَٰلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ

Hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and to a garden the extensiveness of which is as the extensiveness of the heaven and the earth; it is prepared for those who believe in Allah and His apostles; that is the grace of Allah: He gives it to whom He pleases, and Allah is the Lord of mighty grace.

Verse 22:
مَا أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي أَنفُسِكُمْ إِلَّا فِي كِتَابٍ مِّن قَبْلِ أَن نَّبْرَأَهَا إِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ

No evil befalls on the earth nor in your own souls, but it is in a book before We bring it into existence; surely that is easy to Allah


لِّكَيْلَا تَأْسَوْا عَلَىٰ مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا تَفْرَحُوا بِمَا آتَاكُمْ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ

So that you may not grieve for what has escaped you, nor be exultant at what He has given you; and Allah does not love any arrogant boaster:

——


Surah At-Taghabun, Verse 11:
مَا أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ وَمَن يُؤْمِن بِاللَّهِ يَهْدِ قَلْبَهُ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

No affliction comes about but by Allah’s permission; and whoever believes in Allah, He guides aright his heart; and Allah is Cognizant of all things

Surah Al-Fajr, Verses 27-30
يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ

O soul that art at rest!

ارْجِعِي إِلَىٰ رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً

Return to your Lord, well-pleased (with him), well-pleasing (Him),

فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي

So enter among My servants,


وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي

And enter into My garden.

(61:4) Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall.

Surah An-Naml (60-62)

أَمَّنْ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَأَنزَلَ لَكُم مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَنبَتْنَا بِهِ حَدَائِقَ ذَاتَ بَهْجَةٍ مَّا كَانَ لَكُمْ أَن تُنبِتُوا شَجَرَهَا أَإِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ اللَّهِ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ يَعْدِلُونَ

Nay, He Who created the heavens and the earth, and sent down for you water from the cloud; then We cause to grow thereby beautiful gardens; it is not possible for you that you should make the trees thereof to grow. Is there a god with Allah? Nay! they are people who deviate.

أَمَّن جَعَلَ الْأَرْضَ قَرَارًا وَجَعَلَ خِلَالَهَا أَنْهَارًا وَجَعَلَ لَهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ حَاجِزًا أَإِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ اللَّهِ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

Or, Who made the earth a restingplace, and made in it rivers, and raised on it mountains and placed between the two seas a barrier. Is there a god with Allah? Nay! most of them do not know!

أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاءَ الْأَرْضِ أَإِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ اللَّهِ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ

Or, Who answers the distressed one when he calls upon Him and removes the evil, and He will make you successors in the earth. Is there a god with Allah? Little is it that you mind!

(16) And certainly We created man, and We know what his mind suggests to him, and We are nearer to him than his life-vein.

إِذْ يَتَلَقَّى الْمُتَلَقِّيَانِ عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ قَعِيدٌ

(17) When the two receivers receive, sitting on the right and on the left.

مَّا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ

And whoever submits himself wholly to Allah and he is the doer of good (to others), he indeed has taken hold of the firmest thing upon which one can lay hold; and Allah’s is the end of affairs


Surah Az-Zumar, Verse 53:
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ

Surah Al-Isra, Verse 44:

The seven heavens declare His glory and the earth (too), and those who are in them; and there is not a single thing but glorifies Him with His praise, but you do not understand their glorification; surely He is Forbearing, Forgiving.

Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 43:
هُوَ الَّذِي يُصَلِّي عَلَيْكُمْ وَمَلَائِكَتُهُ لِيُخْرِجَكُم مِّنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ وَكَانَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَحِيمًا

He it is Who sends His blessings on you, and (so do) His angels, that He may bring you forth out of utter darkness into the light; and He is Merciful to the believers.


Surah Ghafir, Verse 14:
فَادْعُوا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ

Therefore call upon Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience, though the unbelievers are averse:

Surah Ghafir, Verse 15:
رَفِيعُ الدَّرَجَاتِ ذُو الْعَرْشِ يُلْقِي الرُّوحَ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ عَلَىٰ مَن يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ لِيُنذِرَ يَوْمَ التَّلَاقِ

Possessor of the highest rank, Lord of power: He makes the inspiration to light by His command upon whom He pleases of His servants, that he may warn (men) of the day of meeting.

Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 214:
أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلِكُم مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاءُ وَالضَّرَّاءُ وَزُلْزِلُوا حَتَّىٰ يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ مَتَىٰ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ أَلَا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ

Or do you think that you would enter the garden while yet the state of those who have passed away before you has not come upon you; distress and affliction befell them and they were shaken violently, so that the Apostle and those who believed with him said: When will the help of Allah come? Now surely the help of Allah is nigh!


Surah Ar-Room, Verse 5:
بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنصُرُ مَن يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ

With the help of Allah; He helps whom He pleases; and He is the Mighty, the Merciful;

وَعْدَ اللَّهِ لَا يُخْلِفُ اللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

(This is) Allah’s promise! Allah will not fail His promise, but most people do not know.

Surah Ash-Shura, Verse 28:
وَهُوَ الَّذِي يُنَزِّلُ الْغَيْثَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا قَنَطُوا وَيَنشُرُ رَحْمَتَهُ وَهُوَ الْوَلِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ

And He it is Who sends down the rain after they have despaired, and He unfolds His mercy; and He is the Guardian, the Praised One.

Surah At-tur, Verse 48:
وَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ فَإِنَّكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ

And wait patiently for the judgment of your Lord, for surely you are before Our eyes, and sing the praise of your Lord when you rise

وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَسَبِّحْهُ وَإِدْبَارَ النُّجُومِ

And in the night, give Him glory too, and at the setting of the stars.

Surah Ibrahim, Verse 12:
وَمَا لَنَا أَلَّا نَتَوَكَّلَ عَلَى اللَّهِ وَقَدْ هَدَانَا سُبُلَنَا وَلَنَصْبِرَنَّ عَلَىٰ مَا آذَيْتُمُونَا وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُتَوَكِّلُونَ

And what reason have we that we should not rely on Allah? And He has indeed guided us in our ways; and certainly we would bear with patience your persecution of us; and on Allah should the reliant rely.

Surah Al-Isra, Verse 20:
كُلًّا نُّمِدُّ هَٰؤُلَاءِ وَهَٰؤُلَاءِ مِنْ عَطَاءِ رَبِّكَ وَمَا كَانَ عَطَاءُ رَبِّكَ مَحْظُورًا

All do We aid– these as well as those– out of the bounty of your Lord, and the bounty of your Lord is not confined

اَمَّنْ يُّجِيْبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ اِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوْٓءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَآءَ الْاَرْضِ‌ؕ ءَاِلٰـهٌ مَّعَ اللّٰهِؕ قَلِيْلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُوْنَؕ

Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah ? Little do you remember.

[Surah An-Naml 27:62]

My Lord! Inspire and guide me so that I may thank You for Your favor which You have bestowed on me and on my parents, and so that I may act righteously in a manner that will please You; and include me (out of Your mercy) among Your righteous servants.
—  Holy Qur'an, al-Naml 19
Day 4 - Alhamdulillah, always

There are several moments in life when you feel as though everything that could possibly go wrong… goes wrong. Everything turned out to be the exact opposite of what you hoped for. And all of sudden, you are left shattered and confused. Sometimes, this is when some may even begin to question Allah (swt). Instead of praying for answers, you get frustrated and question: “Why me?” “What have I done to deserve this?” “I’ve been praying this entire time… why me?” Right?

But when have you ever questioned Allah (swt) about your blessings? When have you cried and asked “Why do I deserve a house for shelter?” “Why do I have eyes that can see and ears that can hear?” “Why do I get to have 3 meals a day, when there’s millions around the world who haven’t even had 1?” Why do you feel so entitled just because a couple things don’t go your way? Take a look at all the blessings you already have!

Did you really deserve all those blessings? What makes you so special? The truth is you don’t deserve it. None of us do. But Allah (swt) will always give us more than we can be thankful for. Those who have eyes but no ears, can say “I can see them talking, but I wish I could hear what they’re saying.” Those who have ears and no eyes can say “I can hear them talking, but I wish I knew what they looked like.” There is always something to complain about, but SO MUCH MORE TO BE THANKFUL FOR.

It’s when times get tough, that you should take a step back and look at all that you have. Whatever didn’t happen, wasn’t meant to happen. Allah (swt) has the greatest plan for you and only he knows what is best. When things are going well, say Alhamdulillah. When things are going bad, say Alhamdullilah, because it could be worse. And Alhamdullilah because you know Allah (swt) has the most perfect blueprint of life specifically designed for you and what is better for you will be revealed when he decides is best.

Prophet Sulaiman said, as stated in the Quran, “…This is by the Grace of my Lord to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! And whoever is grateful, truly, his gratitude is for (the good of) his own self, and whoever is ungrateful, (he is ungrateful only for the loss of his own self). Certainly! My Lord is Rich (Free of all wants), Bountiful” [An-Naml: 40]

“Why should Allah punish you if you have thanked (Him) and have believed in Him. And Allah is Ever All-Appreciative (of good), All-Knowing” [(An-Nisa, Verse #147)].

A simple term, for the most sincere praise, Alhamdulillah for everything.
