Facts about Quran E Majeed You Would Love To Know! August 12, 2011

Listed below are some fascinating facts about Quran E Majeed. I am sure you will love to know it and to share with your fellow brothers and sisters.

Compilation:
1] Qur’an is divided into 30 sections (Ajza)
2] There are 114 Surahs of the Qur’an. Longest is Surah Al Baqrah (286 Verses), the shortest is Surah al-Kawthar (“Abundance” with 3 verses)
3] Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran received the first revelation in 610AD at the Cave of Hira (Ghar ul Hira)
4] There are a total of 6236 verses in the Qur’an
5] The revelation continued for a period of 22 years, 5 months and 14 days approximately until the demise of the Prophet in 633AD or 11 AH (After Hijrah – the migration of Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran from Mecca to Medina)

The compilation of the Qur’an:

This passed through 4 stages:

Stage 1 – Upto the death of Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran PBUH

  • A great number of Companions (Sahaba) committed the Qur’an to memory.
  • The various Surah’s of the Qur’an were written down on parchment, wooden tablets, soft stone, palm leaves and bits of leather.
  • Therefore during the lifetime of the Prophet the Qur’an was preserved by both memory and by writing in various forms. One of which validated and authenticated the other.
  • Since Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran could not read or write himself, he memorised the Qur’an whilst his Companions both memorised and wrote it down.
  • During the Ramadhan before his demise, the Qur’an was rechecked and reconfirmed twice

Stage 2 – The Caliphate of Abu Bakr (ra) (died 634AD)

  • Abu Bakr (ra) asked Zaid bin Thabit (ra), one of the scribes of the revelation to put the Qur’an together in a single volume.
  • The instructions of arranging the order of the Qur’an in terms of it’s surahs was well known due to the clear instruction of our beloved Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran during his lifetime to his Companions.
  • Zaid (ra), in consultation with the various Sahaba, collated a single ‘Mushaf’ or copy of the Qur’an. The process of validating and authenticating what was written was facilitated by Zaid’s rigourous approach in ensuring that nothing was written down until certain test were carried out in the interest of legitimacy by at least two witnesses i.e. the document itself provided by a Companion supported by the evidence of other Companions who had committed it to memory.
  • Therefore the first Mushaf was compiled during the Caliphate of Abu Bakr (ra)
  • It was written on sheets and was tied with strings

Stage 3 – The Caliphate of Umar (ra) (Died 644)

  • Concerted efforts were made to learn the Qur’an through the process of memorization
  • Abu Darda (in Syria) alone assisted 1600 students in his Qur’anic classes
  • The Mushaf, the first copy of the Qur’an came into the possession of Umm Ul Mumineen Hafsa (ra), the widow of the Messenger of Allah allah Facts of Quran during Umar’s Caliphate

Stage 4 – The Caliphate of Uthman ibn Uffan (ra) (Died 655AD)

  • By approval of our beloved Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran, a dialectal variation related to some of the words of the Qur’an had been practiced among the various Arab tribes.
  • As Islam spread, this caused much confusion especially after the expansion of Islam into non-Arab lands
  • Also, there were still occurrences whereby some Companions wrote down what they heard from the Prophet and did not have it verified. This obviously introduced an element of risk that mistakes, grammatical or otherwise could have crept into these ‘personal’ writings of some of these people
  • Uthman (ra) , quite rightly sanctioned the preparation of a single Qur’an for all the Muslims. Once again, Zaid bin Thabit (along with 3 other Companions of our beloved Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran was engaged in comparing the Mushaf in the possession of Umm Ul Mumineen Hafsa (ra) with existing copies in the custody of other Companions. As instructed by Uthman, wherever a dialectical version was noticed, it was replaced by the dialect of the Quraish, the tribe of Prophet Muhammad saws Facts of Quran.
  • Seven or Eight copies of this Mushaf was distributed to the major Muslim centers in the Islamic World. All other copies were recalled and destroyed. Any further copies were made on the basis of these seven or eight.

The Present Day

  • Two copies of the original Mushaf of Uthman still exist. One in Topkapi Museum in Istanbul, Turkey and the second at Tashkent in Uzbekistan. The national library of Karachi in Pakistan have a copy of the Mushaf which is in Tashkent which was presented to Ayyub Khan in 1965 on a visit to Russia (Uzbekistan was then part of the former USSR)
  • Muslims continue to read, learn and memorise the same Qur’an.
  • Although a number of symbols were introduced into the Qur’anic script, notably during the reign of Hajjaj bin Yusuf, the meaning of the Qur’an has not changed. These were introduced to make the reading and recitation of the Qur’an easier for non Arabs.
  • The Qur’an has been preserved through both it’s written and memorised form. Today it is available on a range of media, i.e. CD’s, MP3, Audio Cassette etc.
  • From Singapore to Spain, the same Qur’an is recited, with the same meaning as the original.

Allah allah Facts of Quran has promised in the Qur’an :

“We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly Guard it (from corruption). [Al-Qur’an 15:9]

Remembring Allah – Remember 5 things before you sleep May 26, 2010

Do these five things before going to bed at night:

  • give 4000 dinaars in sadaqa and then sleep
  • read one complete Quran and then sleep
  • pay the price for jannat and then sleep
  • make two people happy with each other when they are upset and then sleep
  • do one hajj and then sleep

5 things to remember before you go to bed

This looks impossible, how will i be able to do it?

4 times reading surah Fatiha is equals to four thousand dinaars giving in sadaqa.

3 times reading surah ikhlas (qul hu allahu ahad) is equals to one complete quran.

3 times reading any durood shareef (shortest: Sallalaho alaihe wassallam) is the price of jannat.

10 times astaghfirullah (or any istighfar) is equals to making two unhappy people happy with each other.

4 times third kalima is equals to one hajj.

Jazakallah Khair

 

The Price of Emaan

Several years ago an Imaam moved to London. He often took the bus from his home to the downtown area. Some weeks after he arrived, he had occasion to ride the same bus. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him twenty pence too much change. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, you better give the twenty pence back. It would be wrong to keep it. Then he thought, oh forget it, it’s only twenty pence. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company already gets too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a gift from Almighty Allah and keep quite.

Its a mercy from Allah that he provided us RainWhen his stop came, the Imaam paused momentarily at the door, then he handed the twenty pence back to the driver and said ” Here, you gave me too much change.” The driver with a smile replied ” Aren’t you the new Imaam in this area? have been thinking lately about going to worship at your mosque. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change.” When the Imaam stepped off the bus, his knees became weak and soft. He had to grab the nearest light pole and held for support, and looked up to the heavens and cried “Oh Allah, I almost sold Islam for twenty pence!” Remember, we may never see the impact our actions have on people. Sometimes we are the only knowledge of Quran someone will read, or the only Islam a non-Muslim will see. What we need to provide, InshaAllah is an example for others to see. Be careful and be honest everyday, because you never know who is watching your actions and judging you as a Muslim.

” And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).
And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah,

then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a measure for all things. (At-Talaq 65:2-3)”

 

Adoration For Our Beloved Prophet – February 28, 2010

“And We sent not you (O Muhammad), but as a mercy for all worlds.” Surah Al-Anbia : 107

This post is devoted to Our Beloved Prophet On This Auspicious Occasion of Eid Milad un-Nabi

“Oh Lord, increase my marveling at You!”

I fell in love with the sweetness of this wonderful supplication of our Beloved Prophet (SA). How far can love reach? The Man of the highest illumination who ever lived asked His Lord to heighten His adoration towards Him! Allah the highest says in the Holy Quran:

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

“There has now come to you a Messenger from amongst yourselves; grievous to Him is your suffering; anxious is He over you; towards the believers, kind and compassionate.”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

“He lowered unto the believers His wing of tenderness through mercy…” and “was the guardian of believers and nearer to them then their selves.”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

The Prophet’s greatness does not lie in His superiority of knowledge, wisdom, intellect or insight in every field, over every person, but in His poverty, nothingness, humility, slave-hood and modesty. He was the supreme authority on all levels, but in reality He was the Jewel of all the Allah’s servants. The greatness of His heart demonstrates that poverty is our greatest wealth. The more Allah blessed and favored our Beloved Prophet, the more He became humble and submissive. Everyday He asked for forgiveness a hundred times and prayed repeatedly to His Lord: “Glory be to You, we have not been able to know You as Your knowledge requires, O Know One! Glory be to You, we have not been able to worship You as Your worship requires, O Worshiped One!”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

All things begin with Him; all things are sealed by Him. He is the most dignified of men. He is the pride of humanity, the most Beloved and the most desired Prophet of Allah the Highest. But our most Beloved of hearts acted like any other person, this is the sublime secret of His being, the treasury of pure modesty. The eternal beauty of Allah is reflected in His tender heart in its fullest splendor. He never asked for anything, He never sought anything from His Lord.

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

As soon as He was born, He prostrated Himself and said: “My community, My community. On the heavenly ascension, Allah wished to endow Him with all the riches of Paradise in order to please Him, but He answered with only one word: “My community, My community.”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

Does a greater beauty shine from a human heart?

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

The light of Muhammad (SA) is the essence of all creation. There is nothing closer to Allah’s Light than the reality of Muhammad (SA). Both illuminated and illuminating he cried out: “Oh Lord, show us things as they are!”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

Prophet Muhammad (SA) encouraged equal treatment of slaves and kings.

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

Rulers gained humility, slaves gained honor, tyrants gained peace and beggars gained dignity. This revolutionary change of character, making simple, primitive people into the highest of saints, is certainly the most outstanding miracle of our Prophet Muhammad (SA).

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

Nobody impressed the whole of humanity so deeply. He is the key to divine knowledge, opening the eye of the heart which sees and hears the truth. He is the point where real human perfection starts, He is the goal of our all possible accomplishments. With Him we begin, with Him we end.

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

Allah hides Himself, His essence from His believers, but He lets us know and find His reality through the beauty and goodness of Muhammad (SA).

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

There are 70,000 veils between the servant and his Lord. These veils are screens for the truth.

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

In the words of Sheikh Abd Al-Qadir Al-Gilani:

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

“All created beings are a veil, with the exception of the Messenger of Allah (SA). For He is the doorway and means by which the goal is reached.”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

Sheikh Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi said:

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

“All created beings have a shadow, with the exception of our Messenger (SA) for He is the first light, the source of light. The source of existence has no shadow. With this light we can see and understand Allah’s truth.”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

In true humility, The Messenger of Allah says:

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

“My figure amongst the noble Prophets is this; a man builds a wall; he has finished it, except it needs one more brick; I am this brick. After me, there will be no more Messengers or Prophets.”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

“Say of me: The Servant of Allah and His Messenger (SA), so that you do not fall into exaggeration that the people manifest with regard to my brother Jesus.”

ANY_CHARACTER_HERE

For the perfect lover of the truth, He represents the satisfier of all our needs. To marvel at Him is the ascension of our souls. To hear of Him makes what is difficult easy, because Divine grace radiates on whoever contemplates Him. Sending Him salutations and blessings brings an immediate expansion of love in our hearts. Contemplating Him brings the greatest joy and illuminates the face of our soul. Wishing peace for His soul means true salvation, and touches the deepest interior of our hearts.
