:bump1:


i am not sure what to really say here except i have been feeling drawn of Late to Islam. Christianity is such a huge mess and maze of dogmas and doctrines i cannot stand it. And trying to study "the bible' soo hard with sooo many dofferent versions and internal contradictions even in the clearest word for word translations ....i have felt so lost so long trying to figure out which church is true..which church sigh.. it has been a heart aching journey.

The Quran.... ahh yess the Quran (i have Albdullah Yusuf Ali's 11th edition) Is so pure both from a preservation stand point..but also the reading (even if i dont know arabic..the english text is so soul-filling [dont know if "soul" is a proper word in Islam ])

what i have learned of the Quran helps me soo much

I love S.56 8-38

please share with me any soul-filling...comforting/joying verses that have helped you please...i Love the Quran!!:thumbs_up:'( (happy tears) :happy:

Peace,

Brother or Sister...

If you don't have any qualms regarding the 5 pillars of Islaam i.e. Shahadah, Salaat, Zakaat, Sawm & Hajj.....then go ahead and make the testification :D Don't delay !

I am glad you are finding peace in the Qur'an. It is the main reason I became a muslim - after losing faith in the bible as the word of God, the divine revelation preserved in the Qur'an is like finding a safe place to call home.

My favorite read in the Qur'an is surah 94. It is a reminder that even though times may be tough, Allah (swt) is always there, and is always providing relief for those who seek it in Him.

I also LOVE the Qur'an :)

Chapter 41 Verses 30-35

Lo! those who say: Our Lord is Allah, and afterward are upright, the angels descend upon them, saying: Fear not nor grieve, but bear good tidings of the paradise which ye are promised. We are your protecting friends in the life of the world and in the Hereafter. There ye will have (all) that your souls desire, and there ye will have (all) for which ye pray. A gift of welcome from the Forgiving, the Merciful.

And who is better in speech than him who prayeth unto his Lord and doeth right, and saith: Lo! I am of those who surrender (unto Him).

The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo! he, between whom and thee there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend. But none is granted it save those who are steadfast, and none is granted it save the owner of great happiness.

God willing, you'll fulfill your hope, find a place of peace and smile that you are free some day Insha'Allah...

I like to recite after the reciter that is how I memorize the suras (Arabic is my mother tongue though) I believe there are many copies of the Quran's with a translation as well as a transliteration so you can recite along even sooner than the 'distant' some day :D

There are a number of hadith that, if put together, explain how one makes salat. But there isn't a single hadith or verse of the Qur'an that explains the entirity of the salat.

However, be rest assured, that the way muslims pray is the same way we've prayed since the Prophet (saws) taught us how. There are a few minor variations at certain points in the prayer, because the Prophet (saws) prayed different duas (supplications) at different times.

nice to see your reading the Quran

into nations and tribes that you might know one another. The noblest of you
before Allah is the most righteous of you. Allah is the Knower, the Aware.

This is Surah Al Mulk (The Dominion) Chapter 67...the arabic is sooo beautiful! There is no translation that can ever be compared to the Qur'an in arabic. It pierces deep into your heart and it's recitation is food for the soul. If a day goes by without it's recitation, the heart feels a yearning for it as a new born for it's mothers milk.



(1) Blessed be He in Whose hands is Dominion: and He over all things Hath Power―

(2) He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving―

(3) He Who created the seven heavens one above another; no want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (Allah) Most Gracious. so turn thy vision again: Seest thou any flaw?

(4) Again turn thy vision a second time; (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out.

(5)And We have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones, and have prepared for them the Penalty of the Blazing Fire.

(6)For those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the Penalty of Hell: and evil is (such) destination.

(7)When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath even as it blazes forth.

(8)Almost bursting with fury: every time a Group is cast therein its Keepers will ask "Did no Warner come to you?"

(9)They will say: "Yes indeed: a Warner did come to us, but we rejected him and said `Allah never sent down any (Message): ye are in nothing but an egregious delusion!' "

(10)They will further say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!"

(11)They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the Companions of the Blazing Fire!

(12)As for those who fear their Lord unseen for them is Forgiveness and a great Reward.

(13)And whether ye hide your word or publish it, He certainly has (full) knowledge, of the secrets of (all) hearts.

(14)Should He not know― He that created? And He is the One that understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with them).

(15)It is He Who has made the earth manageable for you, so traverse ye through its tracts and enjoy of the Sustenance which He furnishes: but unto Him is the Resurrection.

(16)Do ye feel secure that He Who is in heaven will not cause you to be swallowed up by the earth when it shakes (as in an earthquake)?

(17)Or do ye feel secure that He Who is in Heaven will not send against you a violent tornado (with showers of stones), so that ye shall know how (terrible) was My warning?

(18)But indeed men before them rejected (My warning): then how (terrible) was My rejection (of them)?

(19)Do they not observe the birds above them, spreading their wings and folding them in? None can uphold them except (Allah) Most Gracious: truly it is He that watches over all things.

(20)Nay, who is there that can help you, (even as) an army, besides (Allah) Most Merciful? In nothing but delusion are the Unbelievers.

(21)Or who is there that can provide you with Sustenance if He were to withhold His provision? Nay, they obstinately persist in insolent impiety and flight (from the Truth).

(22) Is then one who walks headlong, with his face grovelling, better guided― or one who walks evenly on a Straight Way?

(23) Say: "It is He Who has created you (and made you grow) and made for you the faculties of hearing, seeing, and understanding: little thanks it is ye give."

His throne comprises the heavens and the earth,
The preserving of them fatigues Him not,
And He is the All-High, All-Glorious.

I agree. One of my favorites.
I like rahman a lot as well, like many do.

I'll also mention 80, he frowned, or عبس
It's beautifully melodic, and the message is very moving for me.
I think it's also fitting to this topic.

1. He frowned and turned away,

2. Because there came to him the blind man (interrupting).

3. And what would make you know that he would purify himself,

4. Or that he might receive admonition, and the teaching might profit him?

5. As for him who thinks himself self-sufficient

6. To him you attend

7. What does it matter to you if he does not become purified?

8. But as for him who came to you running,

9. And is afraid( of Allah's punishment)

10. To him you are neglectful

11. No! Indeed these verses are a reminder

12. So whoever wills, let him pay attention to it

13. It is recorded in honered books

14. Exalted, purified,

15. Written by the hands of scribes-

16. Noble and righteous.

17. Cursed is the disbelieving man! How ungrateful he is!

18. From what thing did He create from?

19. From a sperm drop He created him and destined for him

20. That He made the way easy for him

21. Then He causes his death and puts him in the grave

22. Then, when it is His Will, He will resurrect him

23. No! Man has not accomplished what He commanded him

24. Then let man look at his food,

25. How we poured down water in torrents

26. And We split the earth in fragments,

27. And caused to grow within it grain

28. And grapes and clover,

29. And Olives and Dates,

30. And thick gardens,

31. And fruits and herbage

32. A provision for you and for your cattle.

33. But when the deafening cry comes,

34. That Day shall a man flee from his own brother,

35. And from his mother and his father,

36. And from his wife and his children.

37. Each one of them, that Day, will have enough concern (of his own) to make him careless of others.

38. Some faces that Day will be beaming,

39. Laughing, rejoicing.

40. And other faces that Day will be dust-stained,

41. Veiled in darkness,

42. Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.

Greetings love_quran,

Welcome to the forum. :)

whwere in the Quran are the 5 pillars listed (just curious really)
It is important to understand that Islam is based upon two sources: the Qur'an and the Prophetic tradition (known as the Sunnah). These sources go hand-in-hand to explain Islam. Regarding the 5 pillars, you will find them mentioned in different places in the Qur'an. There is also a saying of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about them, where he said:
“Islam has been built on five [pillars]: testifying that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing the salah (prayer), paying the zakat (obligatory charity), making the hajj (pilgrimage) to the House, and fasting in Ramadhan.”

Verses from the Qur'an:

And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): "Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghut (all false deities i.e. do not worship Taghut besides Allah)." [16:36]

Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is the Messenger of Allah... [48:29]

And be steadfast in prayer; practise regular charity; and bow down your heads with those who bow down (in worship). [2:43]

O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may ward off (evil); [2:183]

...And pilgrimage to the House is a duty unto Allah for mankind, for him who can find a way thither. As for him who disbelieveth, (let him know that) Lo! Allah is Independent of (all) creatures. [3:97]

And there are many other verses about the 5 pillars - some going into more detail about them.

I love Surah Rehman and its been posted.

This one makes me emotional, subhanAllah:

Chapter 59, Verse 21:

"Had we sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would certainly have seen it falling down, splitting asunder because of the fear of Allah, and we set forth these parables to men that they may reflect."

The Quran.... ahh yess the Quran (i have Albdullah Yusuf Ali's 11th edition) Is so pure both from a preservation stand point..but also the reading (even if i dont know arabic..the english text is so soul-filling [dont know if "soul" is a proper word in Islam ])

what i have learned of the Quran helps me soo much

I love S.56 8-38

please share with me any soul-filling...comforting/joying verses that have helped you please...i Love the Quran!!:thumbs_up:'( (happy tears) :happy:

thank you all for good responses...


1.)does the quran have any verses concerning how one can tell what is true? i mean..how can i be certain (besides through having a feeling or the 5 physical senses) can i arrive at the truth of something?

in other words is there a way that is certain that the certainty of truth can be established?

2.) are there any pronounciation guides for the shahada?

I have been feeling more convinced about Islam and have felt more of a desire to say the shahada..i am just wanting to be sure that if i do i will not regret it later.

Islam is the truth, although you have been mislead before and may have resulted in a negative attitude towards religion/s. I think themain point to note is that many have been amended over time and still to this day being changed.

Islam on the other hand has remained and Insha'Allah (Allah Willing) alway will be unchanged.

Listen to the Quran as much as possible, do your researched and ignore the whispers of Satan who will try to steer you away from Islam.

Yes i have, thank you:D

One question i have bugging me is.. When a Muslim leaves the Ummah (discontinues Muslim practice etc.) what if anything happens to the person ( i mean besides the believed spiritual reprecussions of going to hell etc.)

Ive heard some bad stories about this and would really like to hear the other side of the issue. I have left other religions in the past and so i am concerned what may happen if i be come Muslim and active in worship in a Mosque etc. and feel that i need to stop for some reason? ( i have left the other religions because i felt God wanted me to)

i appreciate your respecting it is my decision. However, I am also learning much from what everyone is sharing and i very much appreciate it. I also hope no one takes offense at any of my questions. I truly do wish to understand Islam and i do feel like i am closer to "entering in"/saying the shahada.

In fact, the other day i basically began to but i stopped in the middle ..partly because of the question i gave in my last post...I beg your patience with me..ive been through alot of inner spiritual conflict that has, perhaps, made me less faith filled than i was years ago. I hope i have not offended anyone here. If anyone has been offended by me or my questions, I do humbly apologize

I think he should not accept Islam unless he is fully convinced otherwise he will have a weak Imaan (faith).

Take your time Bro. It will come to you. You will eventually feel ready just like I did.

I would suggest maybe you should buy a book about the life of Muhammad (pbuh) and read about how he led his life. It will put your mind to rest and help you with your decision.

Also here is a website for Reverts to Islam http://www.revertmuslims.com/ I am sure you will find loads of like minded people there.

Let me know if I can help in any way :)

I thank all of you for your support and concern:smile: ..btw i seem to have been led to the right answer to me question above:Don this forum:bump1:


Can anyone reccomend a Quran and Sunnah set (both bound in one volume with a good concordance etc. let's say with the Bukhari and Muslim Sunnah?

Oh and as to "feelings" i dont see those as indicative of truth..but rather a nice side effect :D:D

yes i do recall speaking of the soul-filling feeling of S.56 but to go with this was the mindset that truth is being spoken in those words :-)

By the way it does seem odd that we often "feel something is true" i have become very wary of that "trap" of the human mind...something new and "nifty" to us can "feel true" without necessarily being true ..just a thought.... I am still finding Islam beautiful and very wonderful/inspiring to study...i pray i may find the right answer so that if i do become a Muslim i feel a great deal of certainty about it (ouch there is that word "feel" again (laughing).:shade::D

Islam urges you to reason rather than feel.

It urges you to look around, question, read, research, understand, debate, acknowledge and finally when you realise..... obey.

It is a process that brings curiosity to some and contentment to others. Lets hope you are one of the latter :)

Fi Amanillah my Brother :)

Another beautiful selection :D the quran just never seems to run out of cheering verses/ayats.

Anyway you should take it easy.. I like this hadith

إن هذا الدين متين فأوغل فيه برفق ولا تبغض إلى نفسك عبادة الله فإن المنبت لا أرضا قطع ولا ظهرا أبقى)
أخرجه أحمد من حديث أنس والبيهقي من حديث جابر


“This religion, means Islam is strong, so, get to know it easily, and don’t ever reduce the importance of a worship to Allah” and he gave an example of a traveler who spend days, and days in his journey, then abused his means of transport, so, he didn’t achieve his goal by getting to his destination, and even worse that he couldn’t get back to his people because the animal he kept beating died of his inclemency ..


and Allah swt knows best

One of my favorite hobbies (if u do not mind this turn of phrase) is searching the Quran for descriptions of:

1. Gardens Paradise

2. The Fall(failure) of Iblis

3. Names of Allah

4. Aspects of HIS (sorry not familiar with revernce ettiquette of Islam yet) care for us (Huimans and Jinn.)

I have a 11th edition, amana publications translation by A. Yusuf Ali, however i do not use the index(anymore) for these searches as i find it fascinating to find these aspects as i read the Quran in both linear fashion (chapter order )and on the various Islamic web pages i visit
