This is the Dua made by the young men who withdrew from their people into a Cave to protect their belief in Allah. The Dua is an inspiration from Allah Himself to the young men, who were in a state of distress with no where to turn to because they were being persecuted for their […]
And mention in the Book (the Qur’ân, O Muhammad SAW , the story of) Maryam (Mary), when she withdrew in seclusion from her family to a place facing east.
She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our Ruh [angel Jibril (Gabriel)], and he appeared before her in the form of a man in all respects.
She said: “Verily! I seek refuge with the Most Gracious (Allâh) from you, if you do fear Allâh.”
(The angel) said: “I am only a messenger from your Lord, (to announce) to you the gift of a righteous son.”
She said: “How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste?”
Alhamdulillah, I have had the opportunity to learn the Quran when I was young and again as an adult but this time with focus on Tajweed. While learning, Allah(swt) granted me the grace to teach children and adults likewise who had never learnt before or just continuing with their learning with me.
Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): “It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of Jinn listened (to this Qur’an). They said: ‘Verily, we have heard a wonderful Recitation (this Qur’an)! ‘It guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allah). ‘And He, exalted be the Majesty of our Lord, has taken neither a wife nor a son (or offspring or children). (Al-Jinn Q72:1-3)
And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Fir’aun (Pharaoh) with his hosts followed them in oppression and enmity, till when drowning overtook him, he said: “I believe that none has the right to be worshipped but He (Allah) in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of the Muslims (those who submit to Allah’s Will).”
Now (you believe) while you refused to believe before and you were one of the Mufsidun (evil-doers, the corrupters).
So this day We shall deliver your (dead) body (out from the sea) that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.).
And when musa (Moses) came at the time and place appointed by Us, and his Lord (Allah) spoke to him; he said: “O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You.” Allah said: “You cannot see Me, but look upon the mountain; if it stands still in its place then you shall see Me.” So when his Lord appeared to the mountain , He made it collapse to dust, and musa (Moses) fell down unconscious. Then when he recovered his senses he said: “Glory be to You, I turn to You in repentance and I am the first of the believers.”
[‘Îsa (Jesus) said]: “And verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him (Alone). That is the Straight Path. (Allah’s religion of Islamic Monotheism which He did ordain for all of His Prophets).” (Maryam Q19:36)
Allah bears witness that La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), and the angels, and those having knowledge (also give this witness); (He always) maintains His creation in Justice. La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
(Al-Imran Q3: 18)
And whosoever submits his face (himself) to Allah, while he is a Muhsin (good-doer i.e. performs good deeds totally for Allah’s sake without any show off or to gain praise or fame and does them in accordance with the Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold [La ilaha illallah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah)]. And to Allah return all matters for decision. (Luqman Q31:22)
The Arabic letter is divided into two equal groups namely Moon letters and Sun letters. Another layer to this rule in Tajweed is what we do when laam Taarif [ل ٱ] if followed by a noun that starts with a moon or sun letter. This means that the writing and reading of laam Taarif [ل ٱ] depends on if the word it is attached to is a moon or sun letter.
