A New Start…

Assalam o alikum wrwb,

Bismillah Hir Rahman Nir Raheem

Starting a blog was something that did not even cross mind before. I was asked two times previously as well to make one, but I never took the advice seriously. I considered it to be too much work. Today someone very close to me asked me to make a blog. I told her ‘I would soon InshaAllah but I’m not making any promises.’ She got a little sad, but did not force me any further. My heart however had already inclined to making one, and thus here I am.  I just want to say that this blog will not be like the others with LONG articles, rather it will only consist of as the title says ‘Pearls of the Qur’an’. Basically, I will be taking certain GEMS from each Surah of the Quran. Something to keep in mind is that I will be starting with the 29th Juz’ which is from Surah Al Mulk all the way to the end ie. Surah An Nas, and then I will post GEMS from the begininng.

Surah Nuh (Noah)

December 12, 2008 at 1:07 am (Uncategorized)

images1 V. 3 The outcome of ibadah (worship) is taqwa (being Allah conscious), and taqwa leads to righteous deeds and helps us to refrain from doing zulm (injustice)

images1 V.8-9 Prophet Nuh conveyed day in and day out. He got all sorts of opposition- his nation would beat him so severely that he would fall unconscious, and then they would throw him in his house thinking he was dead; however the next day when Prophet Nuh would gain conscience, again he would go out to his people and start conveying. His opposition led him to a more closer relationship with Allah (SWT).
For a da’ee (caller to Allah): Take every opportunity and means you get to convey the message of Allah (SWT). And take all the opposition with a positive attitude, this will make you more firm in imaan (faith).

Surah Al Ma’arij (The Means of Ascent)

December 12, 2008 at 12:52 am (Uncategorized)

images1 V. 11-13 In this world people die to get the best education for their children, to provide the best for their children and their spouses just so that they may have the best. But most of the time during all this hassle, people tend to forget the rights of Allah (SWT), or that we are sent in this world in order to obey Allah (SWT), worship Him alone. However on that Day- the Day of Judgement, man will wish to ransom his wife, his children, his close relatives in order to be saved from the scorching fire of Hell. Instead of helping the family, he will be seeking their help; he will be ready to substitute them for his place in Hell.
