AAWRWB,Kindly explain verse 26 from Surah Al Araf.I ask because many of us believe it clearly says that althought physical garments are important to cover ones shame, still the inner cover is more important. Meaning it is more important that you are a righteous and pure person on the inside than the ouside. As you know not all muslims believe in the dresscode of hijab. I do not wish a lecture on that. I only want to deal with verse 26. I think being muslims we should also accepts differences in each other. Hence I ask for your opinion.
Some people claim that they can cure the sick by using the jinn and reciting the Qur'an over water or some drink or even over some instruments such as knives. What is Islam’s point of view regarding this?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I was a Christian before, and now I am confused about the definition of the Holy Spirit. What is the Holy Spirit according to Islam? I would like to know the meaning of the Holy Spirit specifically in surat al-Ma'idah (5: 110). Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum! Could you please shed more light on the meaning of the verse mentioned in Surat Ash-Sharh regarding the hardships that a Muslim faces in his life, and whether the verse is meant for all Muslims in general or only for Muslims who commit certain sins?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum! May Allah rewa rd you generously for this distinguished and wonderful service you offer to tens of millions of Muslims around the world! I have a very important question to ask. Could you please furnish me with a detailed answer concerning the issue of qawamah (guardianship) that is mentioned in surat An-Nisa’, verse 34? It will be very much appreciated if you send me a detailed answer with the opinions of both scholars and exegetes of the Qur’an.
As-salamu `alaykum. Recently, we have heard that a Christian group from Anaheim, California is active in distributing an anti-Islamic flyer at so me Islamic centers in this area. The flyer starts on a positive note and says that, as a Christian, the author agrees with Muslims on several issues. The author says that “America needs to repent of its many sins, such as abortion, sexual immorality, idolatry, racism, drug abuse and drug trafficking, etc.”After making Muslims interested to read this flyer, the author starts attacking Islam, the Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). The author says that Christians cannot accept Prophet Muhammad as God’s true Prophet because the author alleges that the Prophet made some foolish and false statements.The author has preferred to remain anonymous, but he tries to impress his readers with his knowledge of Arabic and Islamic literature. He has deliberately misquoted and mistranslated some Islamic texts. He has exposed not only his anti-Islamic bias, but also his lack of knowledge and understanding of the Qur’an, Hadith and other Islamic literature.The first argument that Christian group posed, which cause a great deal of perplexity to Muslim minds in the area, is related to the words of the Qur’an about “the sun setting in a muddy pool.” Could you please clarify this issue and refute this claim?
Dear Sheikh, as-Salamu `alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. Could you, please, furnish me with what the Qur'an says about the phenomenon of sexual deviance?
Respected Sheikhs, As-Salamu `alaykum. Why is Allah referred to in the Qur'an by the masculine pronoun, "He", when Allah is neither man nor woman? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear Sheikh! As-Salam `Alaykum. Jews have played a considerable role throughout the history, before and after the advent of Islam. The Qur’an referred to them in many places. What, according to the Qur’an, are the main characteristics and qualities of Jews?
In Surat An-Nisaa’ verse 34 it says (in the way I understand it) that men can discipline their wives for moral and other things too. Exactly for what can he do that and why can’t the wife discipline him in other matters? Does this mean that women are less moral than men? And for what does the women have the last word at home? I also understand that the man can hit his wife when it is a matter of nushuz (recalcitrance). If he does then it should be slightly and not with the intention to harm her, also not on the face! Can you correct me if I am wrong and please shed light on the issue raised in the question? Thank you for your time.
Dear Sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum. My question is: in surat Al `Imran Allah says that He sent down the Book and some of its verses are clear while others are allegorical. What is the meaning of the verse 7 in surat Al `Imran?
3- I would like to know the correct understanding of a certain Qur’anic verses in Surat Al-Ma’dah in which Allah Almighty says: “To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute.” (Al-Ma’idah : 48)
As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the explanation of the verse that reads: “Women impure for men impure, and men impure for women impure and women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity: these are not affected by what people say: for them there is forgiveness, and a provision honorable.” (An-Nur: 26) I am asking because I have witnessed many marriages that do not conform with this verse?
As-Salamu `alaykum! I want to know the meaning of the disjointed letters in the Qur’an such as “Alif Lam Mim”.
As-Salamu `alaykum. I am one of those unlucky men who did not read the Holy Qur'an. In fact, when I was young I read perhaps three surahs and after that I don't know what happened. My family is in Lahore where all my children have read the Qur'an. My question is whether I can read the Holy Qur'an in English or not. Please let me have your worthy opinion.
