surah-an-nahl

And your Lord inspired to the bee, “Take for yourself among the mountains, houses, and among the trees and [in] that which they construct.
Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down [for you].” There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colors, in which there is healing for people. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who give thought.

(Quran, Surah An-Nahl, 16:68-69)

The ones whom the angels take in death [while] wronging themselves, and [who] then offer submission, [saying], "We were not doing any evil." But, yes! Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what you used to do.

 ٱلَّذِينَ تَتَوَفَّٮٰهُمُ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةُ ظَالِمِىٓ أَنفُسِہِمۡ‌ۖ فَأَلۡقَوُاْ ٱلسَّلَمَ مَا ڪُنَّا نَعۡمَلُ مِن سُوٓءِۭ‌ۚ بَلَىٰٓ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمُۢ بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُونَ


He sends down the angels with inspiration of His Command to whom of His slaves He pleases (saying): “Warn mankind that La ilaha illa Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so fear Me (by abstaining from sins and evil deeds).
—  Surah An Nahl [16:2]
This is one of my favourite verses inside the Qur'an.

أَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الطَّيْرِ مُسَخَّرَاتٍ فِي جَوِّ السَّمَاءِ مَا يُمْسِكُهُنَّ إِلَّا اللَّهُ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ

Do they not see the birds, constrained in the middle of the sky? None withholds them but Allah; most surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.

(Surah An-Nahl : 79)

I’m currently writing a blog for my University regarding Hikmah (wisdom) when it comes to giving Da'wah with verse 125 in Surah An-Nahl:

ادْعُ إِلِى سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ وَجَادِلْهُم بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَن ضَلَّ عَن سَبِيلِهِ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِالْمُهْتَدِينَ

“Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.”

If anyone who knows this verse could shed more light onto it by messaging me privately I would highly appreciate it as I may have missed something in my own writings. Of course I’ve already referred to those with much greater knowledge…

مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَهُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ

Whoever does good whether male or female and he is a believer, We will most certainly make him live a happy life, and We will most certainly give them their reward for the best of what they did.

-Surah An-Nahl [16:97]

#Farrakhan on “The One(#MasterFardMuhammad) with Power and Force to change the nature of things

Study the following verses from the Holy Qur’an that speak of Allah’s (God’s) Mercy: In Surah 16 Al-Nahl (“The Bee”), verse 89 it reads: 

“And on the day when We raise up in EVERY people a witness against them from among themselves, and bring thee as a witness against these. And We have revealed the Book to thee explaining ALL things, and a Guidance and Mercy and Good News for THOSE WHO SUBMIT.” 

In Surah 2 Al-Baqarah (“The Cow”), verse 160 it reads: “Except those who REPENT and AMEND and make manifest (the truth), these it is to whom I turn (mercifully); and I am the OFT-RETURNING (to mercy), the Merciful.” 

And in the Surah 5 Al-Ma’idah (“The Food”), verse 39 it reads: “But WHOEVER REPENTS after his wrongdoing and reforms, Allah will turn to him (mercifully). Surely Allah is Forgiving [and] Merciful.” ‪‎Farrakhan‬ : The Time and What Must be Done part 29

THE MEANING OF TAAGHOOT p.1

Know, may Allaah have mercy on you, that the first thing Allaah obligated on the Son of Adam is to reject the Taaghoot and believe in Allaah. The proof for this is Allaah’s saying: “And We have indeed sent to every nation a messenger (saying to his people): ‘Worship Allaah alone and avoid the Taaghoot (false deities).” [Surah An-Nahl: 36]
As for the description of Rejecting the Taaghoot, then it is that you believe in the futility of worshipping other than Allaah, and that you abandon doing so and hate it, and that you reject and make enmity with does who do it. And as for the meaning of Believing in Allaah, then it is that you believe that Allaah is the only true God who deserves to be worshipped alone, apart from everything else besides Him. And it is that you make all types of worship – every act - sincerely for Allaah alone, while negating and rejecting that from everything else that is worshipped besides Him.
It also entails that you love and show friendship to the people of Ikhlaas (i.e. Islaam), while hating and showing enmity to the people of Shirk. This is the Religion of Ibraaheem, of which those who turn away from it only fool themselves. And this is the good example that Allaah informs us of in His saying: “There has indeed been an excellent example for you in Ibraaheem and those with him, when they said to their people: ‘Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allaah. We have rejected you and there has commenced between us and you, enmity and hatred forever, until you believe in Allaah alone.’” [Surah Al-Mumtahanah: 4]

Ketetapan-Nya

“Telah pasti datangnya ketetapan Allah, maka jaganlah kamu meminta agar disegerakan (datang)nya. …” (Al-qur’an Surah An-Nahl : 1)
