In the following verse which dwelling places are indicated? Is there any such places exist arround Makkah? Or it is about other places?

Has it not become clear to them how many generations We destroyed before them, (as) they walk among their dwellings? Indeed in that are signs; then do not they hear?

And We did try Solomon: We placed on his throne a body (without life); but he did turn (to Us in true devotion)

I have already read a discussion regarding this issue (title: Lifeless body on a throne). And I found the discussion incomplete. I went to Article section (prophet and messengers chapter) also, but didn't get anything regarding this issue.
So is their any clue about this verse? whose body on throne? Did Brother Joseph make any comment on this issue anywhere else?

Salam to All

There are many beautiful pictorial verses in the Quran. Such as

Seest thou not that God sends down rain from the sky? With it We then bring out produce of various colours. And in the mountains are tracts white and red, of various shades of colour, and black intense in hue.
And so amongst men and crawling creatures and cattle, are they of various colours. Those truly fear God, among His Servants, who have knowledge: for God is Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving.

I just want to experience the meaning of these verses. Diversity of creation is obvious. But what about tracts of mountains- white and red. and black. I live in a plain land. No high mountains, a few hills, hieght about 3,000 feet.

Dear Forum Members

Here in the following verse it seems  that the jinn were doing work for solomon with resentment.

And we decreed for Solomon death, nothing indicated to the jinn his death except a creature of the earth eating his staff. But when he fell, it become clear to the jinn that if they had known the unseen, they would not have remained in humiliating punishment.

But in following verses it seems that jinn were not so displeased to work with Solomon.

`And among the jinn were those worked for him by the permission of his Lord.' (part)
And before Solomon were marshalled his hosts,- of Jinns and men and birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks.
Said an 'Ifrit, of the Jinns: "I will bring it to thee before thou rise from thy council: indeed I have full strength for the purpose, and may be trusted."

Any comment?

Indeed We offered the trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it and feared; but man(undertook to) bear it. indeed he was unjust and ignorant.

What do you understand by this verse? If this issue is already discussed in this forum then would anyone please forward me the link. sorry to bother you.

Dear Forum Members

What do you understand by these consecutive verses. I cannot grasp the reasoning of verse 22:61.
22:60  And whoever responds (to injustice) with equivalent of that with which he was harmed and then is tyrannized- Allah will surely aid him. Indeed Allah is Pardoning and Forgiving.
22:61 That is because Allah causes the night to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night and because Allah is Hearing and Seeing.

Another verse here is-
25:51 And if We willed, We could have sent into every city a warner.

Does it mean that We did not send every city a warner. (But in some other verses, so far as i recall, it is stated that Allah sent warner to all community.) Is there any difference between the  use of Lao and In.

Thanks to all.

Salam Everyone

By the word wudu we generally mean ablution which means the act of washing oneself. But in Arabic uses of the word refers to face.
In Verse 5:6 we see wudu means face and Gusul means washing.
Then why do we use wudu for ablution?

Best regards.

Dear Brother Joseph and  Forum Members

I haven't been able to be here for a long time.
Anyway, here I am with some query regarding some verses now, if you can help.

19:10 (Zechariah) said, `My Lord, make for me a sign.' He said, `Your sign is that you will not speak to the people for three nights, (being) sound.'
How can it be a sign? what does a sign mean?
Brother Joseph wrote in a response that `It purely depends on the context'. I agree. But failed to understand this context.

Here is another verse.
21:79 And we gave understanding of the case to Solomon, and to each (of them) we gave judgement and knowledge, and we subjected the mountains to exalt (Us), along with David and (also) the birds. And we were doing.
This was narrated once again in 34:10
What do you understand by `mountains exaltation along with David and birds.'
Thanks and salam to all.

Dear Members of QM Forum


How do you understand the verse 17:60?

And when We told you (O Muhammad), "Indeed your Lord has encompassed the people." And We did not make the sight which We showed you except as a trial for the people, as was the accursed tree (mentioned) in the Quran. And We threaten them, but it increases not except in great transgression.

How can a thing showed to someone be a trial for others? What is the trial here-  hearing from the Prophet and believing or dis believing it?

Dear Forum Members


Which would be the appropiate translation of the verse 17:11? Mainly two types of translations exist. These might sound similar, but actually they are not, I think.
What do you think?

Muhammad Asad : As it is, man [often] prays for things that are bad as if he were praying for something that is good: for man is prone to be hasty [in his judgments].
Shakir : And man prays for evil as he ought to pray for good, and man is ever hasty.
Yusuf Ali : The prayer that man should make for good, he maketh for evil; for man is given to hasty (deeds).
Abdel Haleem: Yet man prays for harm, just as he prays for good: man is ever hasty.

Discussions / Is it possible to make a concordance

Dear Moderators


I have a problem to share with you. I don't know whether anyone else in this forum has been noticed this type of difficulties. It's not a big issue, but an issue also, at least to me.

When I want to know about a specific topic sometimes it takes time to search. First I have to go to Article section, then to Q/A. Not often the key word is shown on the list or categories of these sections. And sometimes the topic is on their with a different key word.
Hence I have a suggestion.
Is it possible to make a concordance so that a member can easily go to the subject he is looking for.

Thanks for your continuous support.

May Allah give reward you here and hereafter.

Dear Forum Members


Here are two verses, if you share your understanding with me.

He said, "My sons, do not enter from one gate, but enter from separate gates; and I cannot avail you anything against God, for the judgment is to God. In Him I put my trust, and in Him those who put their trust should trust."
When they entered from where their father had commanded them, it would not have availed them in the least against God, but it was out of a concern in Jacob's person. Since We have taught him, he had certain knowledge; but most people do not know.

Why different gates? any idea? And why didn't it work?

We are aware that they say, "A human is teaching him." The language of the one they refer to is foreign, while this is a clear Arabic language."

Who is that person in this verse? Any clue?

I know, these questions might be unnecessary. Actually these are not so important for guidance.  But a little curiosity. Thats all. If anyone can enlighten.

Prophets and Messengers / How can I recognise a messenger?
« on: August 03, 2015, 05:41:03 PM »
Dear Brother Joseph Islam



However, the continuation of guidance through various messengers in various capacities is still open.

Your argument is very logical and if I am agreed with this point then the next question comes, how can i recognise the capacities (such as someone) as a messenger. In the Quran we see that earlier messengers declared their identity themselves. But no one in near past claimed him as a messenger. For example, I am a Bangladeshi. My language is Bangla. But I don't know anyone in my language who claimed him as a messenger. Is it our duty to discover a messenger or he should declare himself?

Your answer is always greatly appreciated.

May Allah reward you here and hereafter.

Dear Forum Members


In 16:101 Allah says:

If We exchange a sign in place of another sign; and God is more aware of what He is revealing; they say, "You are making this up!" Alas, most of them do not know.

Does this verse refer to the Mansukh verses? I believe there is no mansukh verse in the Quran. It does not match with His glory. Then what does it mean by `exchange a sign'.

Thanks for your continuous support. Sometimes it helps me a lot.

Dear Forum Members

What do you think about the three times punishment described in the following verse.

9 : 101
Among the Arabs around you are hypocrites, as well as from the city people; they are audacious in hypocrisy. You do not know them, but We know them. We will punish them twice, then they will be returned to a great punishment.

One more verse to understand.

And we have protected it from every devil expelled. Except one who steals a hearing and is pursued by a clear burning flame.

What does it mean by hearing? and another question is, if it is protected then how could anyone steal a hearing.
