28/01/2019 The Fit Hijabi in Religion / 2 responses

As you read the Qur’an, you’ll run into ayaat that touch your heart, share fine knowledge, or you just fall in love with.

These are my favorite from books 1-3!

The Opening : Al-Fatiha

“In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy! Praise belongs to God, Lord of all worlds, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy, Master of the Day of Judgement. It is You we worship; it is You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path: the path of those You have blessed, those who incur no anger and have not gone astray.”


Now you know, your girl is gonna put the WHOLE opening on here! We say this every day, Alhamdulillah!



The Cow : Al-Baqara

“Seek help with steadfastness and prayer—though this is hard indeed for anyone but the humble…”


“The [Muslim] believers, the Jews, the Christians, and the Sabians—all those who believe in God and the Last Day and do good—will have their rewards with their Lord. No fear for them, nor will they grieve.”


“…Say [Prophet], ‘Why did you kill God’s prophets in the past if you were true believers?’


“For we have sent down clear messages to you and only those who defy [God] would refuse to believe them.”


“…Do you [Prophet] not know that God has power over everything?”


“Keep up the prayer and pay the prescribed alms. Whatever good you store up for yourselves, you will find it with God: He sees everything you do.”


“The East and the West belong to God: wherever you turn, there is His Face. God is the all pervading and all knowing.”


“…He says only, ‘Be,’ and it is.”


“Say [Prophet] [to the Jews and Christians], ‘How can you argue with us about God when He is our Lord and your Lord? Our deeds belong to us, and yours to you. We devote ourselves entirely to Him.”


“…He guides who He will to the right way.”


“…God would never let your faith go to waste [believers], for God is most compassionate and most merciful towards people.”


“…do not fear them; fear Me—and so that I may perfect My favour on you and you may be guided…”


“So remember Me; I will remember you. Be thankful to Me, and never ungrateful. You who believe, seek help through steadfastness and prayer, for God is with the steadfast. Do not say those who are killed in God’s cause are dead; they are alive, though you do not realize.”


“…the truly good are those who believe in God and the Last Day, in the angels, the Scripture, and the prophets; who give away some of their wealth, however much they cherish it, to their relatives, to orphans, to the needy, travellers and beggars, and to liberate those in bondage; those who keep up the prayer and pay the prescribed alms; who keep pledges whenever they make them; who are steadfast in misfortune, adversity, and times of danger. These are the ones who are true, and it is they who are aware of God.”


“You who believe, fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed to those before you, so that you may be mindful of God.”


“It was in the month of Ramadan that the Qur’an was revealed as guidance for mankind, clear messages giving guidance and distinguishing between right and wrong.”


“…Remember Him: He has guided you. Before that you were astray.”


“…Be mindful of God, and remember that you will be gathered to Him.”


“You who believe, enter wholeheartedly into submission to God and do not follow in Satan’s footsteps.”


“The life of this world is made to seem glamorous to the disbelievers, and they laugh at those who believe. But those who are mindful of God will be above them on the Day of Resurrection: God provides immeasurably for whoever He pleases.”


“Say, ‘Whatever good things you give should be for parents, close relatives, orphans, the needy, and travellers. God is well aware of whatever good you do.'”


“[Believers], do not allow your oaths in God’s name to hinder you from doing good, being mindful of God and making peace between people. God hears and knows everything: He will not call you to account for oaths you have uttered unintentionally, but He will call you to account for what you mean in your hearts.”


“Divorce can happen twice, and [each time] wives either be kept on in an acceptable manner or released in a good way…”


“Whenever you divorce women and they have reached their set time, then either keep or release them in a fair manner. Do not hold on to them with intent to harm them and commit aggression: anyone who does this wrongs himself.”


“Mothers suckle their children for two whole years, if they wish to complete the term, and clothing and maintenance must be borne by the father in a fair manner… If, by mutual consent and consultation, the couple wish to wean [the child], they will not be blamed, nor will there be any blame if you wish to engage a wet nurse, provided you pay as agreed in a fair manner… If any of you die and leave widows, the widows should wait for four months and ten nights before remarrying. When they have completed this set time, you will not be blamed for anything they may reasonably choose to do with themselves.”


“Take care to do your prayers, praying in the best way, and stand before God in devotion.”


“…It is God who withholds and God who gives abundantly, and it is to Him that you will return.”


“And when they met Goliath and his warriors, they said, ‘Our Lord, pour patience on us, make us stand firm, and help us against the disbelievers.'”


“God: there is no god but Him, the Ever Living, the Ever Watchful… All that is in the heavens and in the earth belongs to Him… There is no compulsion in religion… God is the ally of those who believe: He brings them out of the depths of darkness and into the light.”


“Those who spend their wealth in God’s cause are like grains of corn that produce seven ears, each bearing a hundred grains. God gives multiple increase to whoever He wishes: He is limitless and all knowing.”


“You who believe, give charitably from the good times you have acquired and that We have produced for you from the earth. Do not seek to give the bad things that you yourself would only accept with your eyes closed.”


“If you give charity openly, it is good, but if you keep it secret and give to the needy in private, that is better for you, and it will atone for some of your bad deeds: God is well aware of all that you do.”


“The Messenger believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, as do the faithful. They all believe in God, His angels, His scriptures, and His messengers. ‘We make no distinction between any of His messengers,’ they say, ‘We hear and obey. Grant us Your forgiveness, our Lord. To You we all return!’—God does not burden any soul with more than it can bear: each gains whatever good it has done, and suffers its bad…”




The Family of ‘Imran : Al-‘Imran

“Step by step, He has sent the Scripture down to you [Prophet] with the Truth, confirming what went before: He sent down the Torah and the Gospel earlier as a guide for people and He has sent down the distinction [between right and wrong].”


“…Some of its verses are definite in meaning—these are the cornerstone of the Scripture—and others are ambiguous. The perverse at heart eagerly pursue the ambiguities in their attempt to make trouble and to pin down a specific meaning of their own: only God knows the true meaning…”


“True Religion, in God’s eyes, is islam [devotion to Him alone]… say, ‘I have devoted myself to God alone and so have my followers.’ Ask those who were given the Scripture, as well as those without one, ‘Do you too devote yourselves to Him alone?'”

“Say, ‘If you love God, follow me, and God will love you and forgive you your sins; God is most forgiving, most merciful.'”


“The angels said, ‘Mary, God gives you news of a Word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, who will be held in honour in this world and the next, who will be one of those brought near to God.”


“In God’s eyes Jesus is just like Adam: He created him from dust, said to him, ‘Be,’ and he was.”


“Say, ‘People of the Book, let us arrive at a statement that is common to us all: we worship God alone, we ascribe no partner to Him, and none of us takes others beside God as lords.’ If they turn away, say, ‘Witness our devotion to Him.'”


“Say [Muhammad], ‘We [Muslims] believe in God and in what has been sent.”


“…There are some among the People of the Book who are upright, who recite God’s revelations during the night, who bow down in worship, who believe in God and the Last Day, who order what is right and forbid what is wrong, who are quick to do good deeds. These people are among the righteous and they will not be denied [the reward] for whatever good deeds they do: God knows exactly who is conscious of Him.”


“No soul may die except with God’s permission at a predestined time. If anyone strives for the rewards of this world, We will give him some of them. If anyone strives for the rewards of the Hereafter, We will give him some of them: We will reward the grateful.”


“All they said was, ‘Our Lord, forgive us our sins and our excesses. Make our feet firm, and give us help against the disbelievers…'”


“You fled without looking back while the Messenger was calling out to you from behind, and God rewarded you with sorrow for sorrow. [He has now forgiven you] so that you may not grieve for what you missed or for what happened to you. God is well aware of everything you do.”


“[Prophet], do not think of those who have been killed in God’s way as dead. They are alive with their Lord, well provided for, happy with what God has given them of His favour; rejoicing that of those they have left behind who have yet to join them there is no fear, nor will they grieve… Those who responded to God and the Messenger after suffering defeat, who do good and remain conscious of God, will have a great reward. Those whose faith only increased when people said to them, ‘People have gathered against you, so fear them,’ and who replied, ‘God is enough for us: He is the best protector.”


“Some People of the Book believe in God, in what has been sent to you and what has been sent down to them: humbling themselves before God, they would never sell God’s revelation for a small price. These people will have their rewards with their Lord: God is swift in reckoning… always be mindful of God, so that you may prosper.”
