Those who believe and obscure not their belief by wrong doing, theirs is safety; and they are rightly guided.That is Our argument. We gave it unto Abraham against his folk. We raise unto degrees of wisdom whom We will. Lo! thy Lord is Wise, Aware.And We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob; each of them We guided; and Noah did We guide aforetime; and of his seed (We guided) David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the good.And Zachariah and John and Jesus and Elias. Each one (of them) was of the righteous.And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot. Each one of them did We prefer above (Our) creatures,With some of their forefathers and thee offspring and thee brethren; and We chose them and guided them unto a straight path:
Such is the guidance of Allah wherewith He guideth whom He will of His bondmen. But if they had set up (for worship ) aught beside Him, (all) that they did would have been vain.
Those are they unto whom We gave the Scripture and command and prophethood. But if these disbelieve therein, then indeed We shall entrust it to a people who will not be disbelievers therein.
Those are they whom Allah guideth, so follow their guidance. Say (O Muhammad, unto mankind): I ask of you no fee for it. Lo! it is naught but a Reminder to (His) creatures.
Quran Translation 6:82 to 90
Allah! There is no deity save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.Quran Tran., 2:256He is Allah, than Whom there is no other Allah, the Knower of the Invisible and the Visible. He is the Beneficent, Merciful.He is Allah, than Whom there is no other Allah, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, Peace, the Keeper of Faith, the Guardian, the Majestic, the Compeller, the Superb. Glorified be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him).He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naught, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifieth Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.Quran Tran: 59:22-24
Quran Way of Life
بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
1. Respect and honor all human beings irrespective of their religion, color, race, sex, language, status, property, birth, profession/job and so on [17/70] Verily we have honoured the Children of Adam. We carry them on the land and the sea, and have made provision of good things for them, and have preferred them above many of those whom We created with a marked preferment.2. Talk straight, to the point, without any ambiguity or deception[33/70] O ye who believe! Guard your duty to Allah, and speak words straight to the point;3. Choose best words to speak and say them in the best possible way
[17/53, 2/83] Tell My bondmen to speak that which is kindlier. Lo! the devil soweth discord among them. Lo! the devil is for man an open foe. And (remember) when We made a covenant with the Children of Israel, (saying): Worship none save Allah (only), and be good to parents and to kindred and to orphans and the needy, and speak kindly to mankind; and establish worship and pay the poor-due. Then, after that, ye slid back, save a few of you, being averse.
4. Do not shout. Speak politely keeping your voice low.
[31/19] Be modest in thy bearing and subdue thy voice. Lo! the harshest of all voices is the voice of the ass.
5. Always speak the truth. Shun words that are deceitful and ostentatious
[22/30] That (is the command). And whoso magnifieth the sacred things of Allah, it will be well for him in the sight of his Lord. The cattle are lawful unto you save that which hath been told you. So shun the filth of idols, and shun lying speech
6. Do not confound truth with falsehood
[2/42] Confound not truth with falsehood, nor knowingly conceal the truth.
7. Say with your mouth what is in your heart
[3/167] And that He might know the hypocrites, unto whom it was said: Come, fight in the way of Allah, or defend yourselves. They answered: If we knew aught of fighting we would follow you. On that day they were nearer disbelief than faith. They utter with their mouths a thing which is not in their hearts. Allah is Best Aware of what they hide.
8. Speak in a civilized manner in a language that is recognized by the society and is commonly used
[4/5] Give not unto the foolish (what is in) your (keeping of their) wealth, which Allah hath given you to maintain; but feed and clothe them from it, and speak kindly unto them
9. When you voice an opinion, be just, even if it is against a relative
[6/152] And approach not the wealth of the orphan save with that which is better, till he reach maturity. Give full measure and full weight, in justice. We task not any soul beyond its scope. And if ye give your word, do justice thereunto, even though it be (against) a kinsman; and fulfil the covenant of Allah. This He commandeth you that haply ye may remember.
10. Do not be a bragging boaster
[31/18] Turn not thy cheek in scorn toward folk, nor walk with pertness in the land. Lo! Allah loveth not each braggart boaster.
11. Do not talk, listen or do anything vain
[23/3, 28/55] Successful indeed are the believers Who are humble in their prayers,And who shun vain conversation,…And when they hear vanity they withdraw from it and say: Unto us our works and unto you your works. Peace be unto you! We desire not the ignorant.
12. Do not participate in any paltry. If you pass near a futile play, then pass by with dignity
[25/72] And those who will not witness vanity, but when they pass near senseless play, pass by with dignity.
13. Do not verge upon any immodesty or lewdness whether surreptitious or overt
[6/151] Say: Come, I will recite unto you that which your Lord hath made a sacred duty for you: That ye ascribe no thing as partner unto Him and that ye do good to parents, and that ye slay not your children because of penury – We provide for you and for them – and that ye draw not nigh to lewd things whether open or concealed. And that ye slay not the life which Allah hath made sacred, save in the course of justice. This He hath command you, in order that ye may discern.
14. If, unintentionally, any misconduct occurs by you, then correct yourself expeditiously
[3/134] Those who spend (of that which Allah hath given them) in ease and in adversity, those who control their wrath and are forgiving toward mankind; Allah loveth the good;
15. Do not be contemptuous or arrogant with people
[31/18] Turn not thy cheek in scorn toward folk, nor walk with pertness in the land. Lo! Allah loveth not each braggart boaster
16. Do not walk haughtily or with conceit
[17/37, 31/18] And walk not in the earth exultant. Lo! thou canst not rend the earth, nor canst thou stretch to the height of the hills.
17. Be moderate in thy pace
[31/19] Be modest in thy bearing and subdue thy voice. Lo! the harshest of all voices is the voice of the ass.
18. Walk with humility and sedateness
[25/63] The (faithful) slaves of the Beneficent are they who walk upon the earth modestly, and when the foolish ones address them answer: Peace;
19. Keep your gazes lowered devoid of any lecherous leers and salacious stares
[24/30-31] Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and be modest. That is purer for them. Lo! Allah is aware of what they do.And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands’ fathers, or their sons or their husbands’ sons, or their brothers or their brothers’ sons or sisters’ sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigour, or children who know naught of women’s nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed
20. If you do not have complete knowledge about anything, it is better to keep silent. You might think that speaking about something without full knowledge is a trivial matter. But it might have grave consequences
[24/15-16] When ye welcomed it with your tongues, and uttered with your mouths that whereof ye had no knowledge, ye counted it a trifle. In the sight of Allah it is very great.
Wherefor, when ye heard it, said ye not: It is not for us to speak of this. Glory be to Thee (O Allah)! This is awful calumny
21. When you hear something malicious about someone, keep a favourable view about him/her until you attain full knowledge about the matter. Consider others innocent until they are proven guilty with solid and truthful evidence
[24/12-13] Why did not the believers, men and women, when ye heard it, think good of their own own folk, and say: It is a manifest untruth?
Why did they not produce four witnesses? Since they produce not witnesses, they verily are liars in the sight of Allah
22. Ascertain the truth of any news, lest you smite someone in ignorance and afterwards repent of what you did
[49/6] O ye who believe! If an evil-liver bring you tidings, verify it, lest ye smite some folk in ignorance and afterward repent of what ye did.
23. Do not follow blindly any information of which you have no direct knowledge. (Using your faculties of perception and conception) you must verify it for yourself. In the Court of your Lord, you will be held accountable for your hearing, sight, and the faculty of reasoning
[17/36] O man), follow not that whereof thou hast no knowledge. Lo! the hearing and the sight and the heart – of each of these it will be asked.
24. Never think that you have reached the final stage of knowledge and nobody knows more than yourself. Remember! Above everyone endowed with knowledge is another endowed with more knowledge
[12/76]. Even the Prophet [p.b.u.h] was asked to keep praying, “O My sustainer! Advance me in knowledge.” [20:114] Then exalted be Allah, the True King! And hasten not (O Muhammad) with the Qur’an ere its revelation hath been perfected unto thee, and say: My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.
25. The believers are but a single Brotherhood. Live like members of one family, brothers and sisters unto one another
[49/10] The believers are naught else than brothers. Therefore make peace between your brethren and observe your duty to Allah that haply ye may obtain mercy.
26. Do not make mockery of others or ridicule others [49/11]
27. Do not defame others [49/11]
28. Do not insult others by nicknames [49/11] O ye who believe! Let not a folk deride a folk who may be better than they (are), not let women (deride) women who may be better than they are; neither defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. Bad is the name of lewdness after faith. And whoso turneth not in repentance, such are evil-doers
29. Avoid suspicion and guesswork. Suspicion and guesswork might deplete your communal energy [49/12]
30. Spy not upon one another [49/12]
31. Do not backbite one another
[49/12] O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Ye abhor that (so abhor the other)! And keep your duty (to Allah). Lo! Allah is Relenting, Merciful.
32. When you meet each other, offer good wishes and blessings for safety. One who conveys to you a message of safety and security and also when a courteous greeting is offered to you, meet it with a greeting still more courteous or (at least) of equal courtesy
[4/86] When ye are greeted with a greeting, greet ye with a better than it or return it. Lo! Allah taketh count of all things.
33. When you enter your own home or the home of somebody else, compliment the inmates
[24/61] No blame is there upon the blind nor any blame upon the lame nor any blame upon the sick nor on yourselves if ye eat from your houses, or the houses of your fathers, or the houses of your mothers, or the houses of your brothers, or the houses of your sisters, or the houses of your fathers’ brothers, or the houses of your fathers’ sisters, or the houses of your mothers’ brothers, or the houses of your mothers’ sisters, or (from that) whereof ye hold the keys, or (from the house) of a friend. No sin shall it be for you whether ye eat together or apart. But when ye enter houses, salute one another with a greeting from Allah, blessed and sweet. Thus Allah maketh clear His revelations for you, that haply ye may understand
34. Do not enter houses other than your own until you have sought permission; and then greet the inmates and wish them a life of blessing, purity and pleasure
[24/27] O ye who believe! Enter not houses other than your own without first announcing your presence and invoking peace upon the folk thereof. That is better for you, that ye may be heedful.
35. Treat kindly : Your parents; Relatives; The orphans; And those who have been left alone in the society
36. Take care of : The needy, The disabled, Those whose hard earned income is insufficient to meet their needs; And those whose businesses have stalled ; And those who have lost their jobs. [4/36]
37. Treat kindly : Your related neighbors, and unrelated neighbors; Companions by your side in public gatherings, or public transportation.
38. Be generous to the needy wayfarer, the homeless son of the street, and the one who reaches you in a destitute condition
39. Be nice to people who work under your care
. [4/36]And serve Allah. Ascribe no thing as partner unto Him. (Show) kindness unto parents, and unto near kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and unto the neighbour who is of kin (unto you) and the neighbour who is not of kin, and the fellow-traveller and the wayfarer and (the slaves) whom your right hands possess. Lo! Allah loveth not such as are proud and boastful,
40. Do not follow up what you have given to others to afflict them with reminders of your generosity
[2/262] Those who spend their wealth for the cause of Allah and afterward make not reproach and injury to follow that which they have spent; their reward is with their Lord, and there shall no fear come upon them, neither shall they grieve.
41. Do not expect a return for your good behavior, not even thanks
[76/9] Saying): We feed you, for the sake of Allah only. We wish for no reward nor thanks from you;
42. Cooperate with one another in good deeds and do not cooperate with others in evil and bad matters
[5/2] O ye who believe! Profane not Allah’s monuments nor the Sacred Month nor the offerings nor the garlands, nor those repairing to the Sacred House, seeking the grace and pleasure of their Lord. But when ye have left the sacred territory, then go hunting (if ye will). And let not your hatred of a folk who (once) stopped your going to the inviolable place of worship seduce you to transgress; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty. Help not one another unto sin and transgression, but keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is severe in punishment.
43. Do no try to impress people on account of self-proclaimed virtues
[53/32]Those who avoid enormities of sin and abominations, save the unwilled offences – (for them) lo! thy Lord is of vast mercy. He is Best Aware of you (from the time) when He created you from the earth, and when ye were hidden in the bellies of your mothers. Therefor ascribe not purity unto yourselves. He is Best Aware of him who wardeth off (evil).
44. You should enjoin right conduct on others but mend your own ways first. Actions speak louder than words. You must first practice good deeds yourself, then preach
[2/44] Enjoin ye righteousness upon mankind while ye yourselves forget (to practise it)? And ye are readers of the Scripture! Have ye then no sense?
45. Correct yourself and your families first [before trying to correct others]
[66/6] O ye who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire whereof the fuel is men and stones, over which are set angels strong, severe, who resist not Allah in that which He commandeth them, but do that which they are commanded.
46. Pardon gracefully if anyone among you who commits a bad deed out of ignorance, and then repents and amends
[6/54] And when those who believe in Our revelations come unto thee, say: Peace be unto you! Your Lord hath prescribed for Himself mercy, that whoso of you doeth evil through ignorance and repenteth afterward thereof and doeth right, (for him) lo! He is Forgiving, Merciful.
47. Divert and sublimate your anger and potentially virulent emotions to creative energy, and become a source of tranquillity and comfort to people
[3/134] Those who spend (of that which Allah hath given them) in ease and in adversity, those who control their wrath and are forgiving toward mankind; Allah loveth the good;
48. Call people to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful exhortation. Reason with them most decently
[16/125] Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who go aright.
49. Leave to themselves those who do not give any importance to the Divine code and have adopted and consider it as mere play and amusement
[6/70] And forsake those who take their religion for a pastime and a jest, and whom the life of the world beguileth. Remind (mankind) hereby lest a soul be destroyed by what it earneth. It hath beside Allah no protecting ally nor intercessor, and though it offer every compensation it will not be accepted from it. Those are they who perish by their own deserts. For them is drink of boiling water and a painful doom, because they disbelieved
50. Sit not in the company of those who ridicule Divine Law unless they engage in some other conversation
[4/140] He hath already revealed unto you in the Scripture that, when ye hear the revelations of Allah rejected and derided, (ye) sit not with them (who disbelieve and mock) until they engage in some other conversation. Lo! in that case (if ye stayed) ye would be like unto them. Lo! Allah will gather hypocrites and disbelievers, all together, into hell;
51. Do not be jealous of those who are blessed
[4/54] Or are they jealous of mankind because of that which Allah of His bounty hath bestowed upon them? For We bestowed upon the house of Abraham (of old) the Scripture and wisdom, and We bestowed on them a mighty kingdom.
52. In your collective life, make rooms for others
[58/11] O ye who believe! when it is said unto you, Make room! in assemblies, then make room; Allah will make way for you (hereafter). And when it is said, Come up higher! go up higher; Allah will exalt those who believe among you, and those who have knowledge, to high ranks. Allah is Informed of what ye do
53. When invited to dine, Go at the appointed time. Do not arrive too early to wait for the preparation of meal or linger after eating to engage in bootless babble. Such things may cause inconvenience to the host
[33/53] O Ye who believe! Enter not the dwellings of the Prophet for a meal without waiting for the proper time, unless permission be granted you. But if ye are invited, enter, and, when your meal is ended, then disperse. Linger not for conversation. Lo! that would cause annoyance to the Prophet, and he would be shy of (asking) you (to go); but Allah is not shy of the truth. And when ye ask of them (the wives of the Prophet) anything, ask it of them from behind a curtain. That is purer for your hearts and for their hearts. And it is not for you to cause annoyance to the messenger of Allah, nor that ye should ever marry his wives after him. Lo! that in Allah’s sight would be an enormity.
54. Eat and drink [what is lawful] in moderation
55. Do not squander your wealth
7:31 (Asad) O CHILDREN of Adam! Beautify yourselves  for every act of worship, and eat and drink [freely], but do not waste: verily, He does not love the wasteful!
56. Fulfill your promises and commitments
[17/34] Come not near the wealth of the orphan save with that which is better till he come to strength; and keep the covenant. Lo! of the covenant it will be asked
57. Keep yourself clean, pure
[9/108] Never stand (to pray) there. A place of worship which was found upon duty (to Allah) from the first day is more worthy that thou shouldst stand (to pray) therein, wherein are men who love to purify themselves. Allah loveth the purifiers.
58. Dress-up in agreeable attire and adorn yourself with exquisite character from inside out
[7/26]. (Asad)O CHILDREN of Adam! Indeed, We have bestowed upon you from on high [the knowledge of making] garments to cover your nakedness, and as a thing of beauty:but the garment of God-consciousness is the best of all. Herein lies a message from God, so that man”might take it to heart.
59. Seek your provision only by fair endeavor [2/188]
60. Do not devour the wealth and property of others unjustly, nor bribe the officials or the judges to deprive others of their possessions
2:188AND DEVOUR NOT one another’s possessions wrongfully, and neither employ legal artificeswith a view to devouring sinfully, and knowingly, anything that by right belongs to others.
The Era of Abraham:Abraham, who earned the title of the friend of God, was chosen to be the leader and guide of humanity as well as the progenitor of the late prophets.(Al-Nisa: 125)Who is better in religion than he who surrendereth his purpose to Allah while doing good (to men) and followeth the tradition of Abraham, the upright? Allah (Himself) chose Abraham for friend.(Al-Baqarah: 124)
And (remember) when his Lord tried Abraham with (His) commands, and he fulfilled them, He said: Lo! I have appointed thee a leader for mankind. (Abraham) said: And of my offspring (will there be leaders)? He said: My covenant includeth not wrong-doers.
Describing the exalted position to which Abraham was raised and made a model in religion and piety for all the Unitarians, the Quran asks the faithful to follow is lead.
Lo! Abraham was a nation obedient to Allah, by nature upright, and he was not of the idolaters;
Thankful for His bounties; He chose him and He guided him unto a straight path.
And We gave him good in the world, and in the Hereafter he is among the righteous.
And afterward We inspired thee (Muhammad, saying): Follow the religion of Abraham, as one by nature upright. He was not of the idolaters.
Ever since the Truth was revealed to Abraham, he continues to be the leader of mankind, and shall continue to be so till the Day of Judgement. The last prophet sent to mankind during the era of Abraham was Muhammad, and the people raised to hold the banner of Abraham aloft are the Muslims. The holy Quran makes it clear in unambiguous terms :
( Al-Hajj: 78)
And strive for Allah with the endeavour which is His right. He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship; the faith of your father Abraham . He hath named you Muslims of old time and in this (Scripture), that the messenger may be a witness against you, and that ye may be witnesses against mankind. So establish worship, pay the poor-due, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protecting friend. A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!
The distinguishing feature of the leadership of Abraham and his call consists of the Unity of Godhead, unalloyed and free from all traces of paganism, animism, pantheism and dualism. It rejects even the slightest trace of polytheistic cult as unsanctioned and graceless. And then Abraham beseeched God for his progeny in these words:
And when Abraham said: My Lord! Make safe this territory, and preserve me and my sons from serving idols.
What is the difference between a Mushrik and a Kaafir?There are generalities (shared between them) and specifics (unique to each of them). Shirk is more general than Kufr, for every Mushrik is a Kaafir but not every Kaafir is a Mushrik. The Mushrik worships Allaah and worships other than Him, as for the Kaafir, then he rejects the existence of Allaah the Mighty and Exalted and does not acknowledge Allaah the Mighty and Majestic, and nor does he acknowledge a religion from amongst the religions. This is the rejecting Kaafir. As for the Mushrik, he acknowledges and believes, however, he worships Allaah and worships other than Him, hence he is a Mushrik Kaafir. Thus, every Mushrik is a Kaafir and not every Kaafir is a Mushrik, since the Kaafir can be a Mulhid, Jaahid (Athiest, Rejecter). Silsilah Sharh ar-Rasaa’il p. 239 / Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan
Say: He is Allah, the One!Allah, the eternally Besought of all!He begetteth not nor was begotten.And there is none comparable unto Him.Quran Translation 112
The Arabic word Allah means God (the one and only true God who created the whole universe).
This word Allah is a name for God, which is used by Arabic speakers, both Arab Muslims and Arab Christians. This word cannot be used to designate anything other than the one true God. The Arabic word Allah occurs in the Quran about 2700 times. In Aramaic, a language related closely to Arabic and the language that Jesus habitually spoke,
God is also referred to as Allah.
If Allah is your helper none can overcome you, and if He withdraw His help from you, who is there who can help you after Him? In Allah let believers put their trust.3:160Those unto whom men said: Lo! the people have gathered against you, therefor fear them. (The threat of danger) but increased the faith of them and they cried: Allah is Sufficient for us! Most Excellent is He in Whom we trust!3:173The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’an) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone);
Who establish worship and spend of that We have bestowed on them.
Alif. Lam. Ra. (This is) a Scripture which We have revealed unto thee (Muhammad) that thereby thou mayst bring forth mankind from darkness unto light, by the permission of their Lord, unto the path of the Mighty, the Owner of Praise,
Their messengers said unto them: We are but mortals like you, but Allah giveth grace unto whom He will of His slaves. It is not ours to bring you a warrant unless by the permission of Allah. In Allah let believers put their trust!
And put your trust in the Ever Living One Who dies not, and glorify His Praises, and Sufficient is He as the All-Knower of the sins of His slaves,
And whosoever keepeth his duty to Allah, Allah will appoint a way out for him,
And will provide for him from whence he hath no expectation. And whosoever putteth his trust in Allah, He will suffice him. Lo! Allah bringeth His command to pass. Allah hath set a measure for all things.
(From 3: 2 and 3)
Allahumma! Send blessings upon Muhammad and upon the followers of Muhammad as You sent blessings upon Ibraheem and upon the followers of Ibraheem; indeed, You are praiseworthy and glorious. Allahumma! Bless Muhammad and the follower of Muhammad as You blessed Ibraheem and the follower of Ibraheem; indeed, You are praise worthy and glorious.
It is not (possible) for any human being unto whom Allah had given the Scripture and wisdom and the prophethood that he should afterwards have said unto mankind: Be slaves of me instead of Allah; but (what he said was): Be ye faithful servants of the Lord by virtue of your constant teaching of the Scripture and of your constant study thereof.And he commanded you not that ye should take the angels and the prophets for lords. Would he command you to disbelieve after ye had surrendered (to Allah)?Quran Translation 3:79-80
4:36 AND WORSHIP Allah ( God alone), and do not ascribe divinity, in any way, to aught beside Him. And do good unto your parents, and near of kin, and unto orphans, and the needy, and the neighbour from among your own people, and the neighbour who is a stranger, and the friend by your side, and the wayfarer, and those whom you rightfully possess. Verily, Allah does not love any of those who, full of self-conceit, act in a boastful manner; (Quran 4:36) (Translation)

أشهد أن لا إله إلاَّ الله و أشهد أن محمد رسول الله“ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh, wa ašhadu anna muammadan abduhu wa rasūlu-llāh“.“I bear witness that there is no deity (none truly to be worshipped) but, Allah, and I bear witness that Mohammad is his slave and messenger”Shahadah (testimony of faith) in Arabic Shahadah (testimony of faith) in English Shahadah (testimony of faith) word by word translation
“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).” (Quran 49:13)
And We did not send any Messenger before you
(O Muhammad )but We revealed to him (saying):
La ilaha illah
[none has the right to be worshipped but I (Allah)],
so worship Me (Alone and none else).” [quran 21:25]
Say “Each one does according to Shakilatihi (i.e. his way or his religion or his intentions.), and your Lord knows best of him whose path (religion) is right.” ( , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #84)
And to your Lord (Alone) turn (all your) intentions and hopes. , Al-Inshirah, Chapter #94, Verse #8)
Their intention is to extinguish Allah.s Light (by blowing) with their mouths: But Allah will complete (the revelation of) His Light, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it). ( , As-Saff, Chapter #61, Verse #8)
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint,- , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #183)
Mankind were one community and Allah sent Prophets with glad tidings and warnings, and with them He sent down the Scripture in truth to judge between people in matters wherein they differed. And only those to whom (the Scripture) was given differed concerning it after clear proofs had come unto them through hatred, one to another. Then Allah by His Leave guided those who believed to the truth of that wherein they differed. And Allah guides whom He wills to the Straight Path. Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #213)
Lo! in the difference of day and night and all that Allah hath created in the heavens and the earth are portents, verily, for folk who ward off (evil).10:6And He it is Who giveth life and causeth death, and His is the difference of night and day. Have ye then no sense?23:80And He it is Who hath appointed night and day in succession, for him who desireth to remember, or desireth thankfulness.25:62Unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth. Lo! Allah, He is the Absolute, the Owner of Praise.31:26He hath created the heavens and the earth with truth. He maketh night to succeed day, and He maketh day to succeed night, and He constraineth the sun and the moon to give service, each running on for an appointed term. Is not He the Mighty, the Forgiver?39:5
Have ye observed the water which ye drink?
Is it ye who shed it from the raincloud, or are We the Shedder?
If We willed We verily could make it bitter. Why then, give ye not thanks?
Have ye observed the fire which ye strike out;
Was it ye who made the tree thereof to grow, or were We the grower?
We, even We, appointed it a memorial and a comfort for the dwellers in
Therefor (O Muhammad), praise the name of thy Lord, the Tremendous.
56:68 to 74
And if all the trees in the earth were pens, and the sea, with seven more seas to help it, (were ink), the words of Allah could not be exhausted. Lo! Allah is Mighty, Wise.
Their prayer therein will be: Glory be to Thee, O Allah! and their greeting therein will be: Peace. And the conclusion of their prayer will be: Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds!
Ibn al Haytham – The First Scientist – Alhazen Biography
Known in the West as Alhazen, Alhacen, or Alhazeni,Abu Ali al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Haytham was the first person to test hypotheses with verifiable experiments, developing the scientific method more than 200 years before European scholars learned of it—by reading his books.
Born in Basra in 965, Ibn al-Haitham first studied theology, trying unsuccessfully to resolve the differences between the Shi’ah and Sunnah sects. Ibn al-Haitham then turned his attention to the works of the ancient Greek philosophers and mathematicians, including Euclid and Archimedes. He completed the fragmentary Conicsby Apollonius of Perga. Ibn al-Haitham was the first person to apply algebra to geometry, founding the branch of mathematics known as analytic geometry.
A devout Muslim, Ibn al-Haitham believed that human beings are flawed and only God is perfect. To discover the truth about nature, Ibn a-Haitham reasoned, one had to eliminate human opinion and allow the universe to speak for itself through physical experiments. “The seeker after truth is not one who studies the writings of the ancients and, following his natural disposition, puts his trust in them,” the first scientist wrote, “but rather the one who suspects his faith in them and questions what he gathers from them, the one who submits to argument and demonstration.”
In his massive study of light and vision, Kitâb al-Manâzir (Book of Optics ), Ibn al-Haytham submitted every hypothesis to a physical test or mathematical proof. To test his hypothesis that “lights and colors do not blend in the air,” for example, Ibn al-Haytham devised the world’s first camera obscura, observed what happened when light rays intersected at its aperture, and recorded the results. Throughout his investigations, Ibn al-Haytham followed all the steps of the scientific method.
Kitab al-Manazir was translated into Latin as De aspectibus and attributed to Alhazen in the late thirteenth century in Spain. Copies of the book circulated throughout Europe. Roger Bacon, who sometimes is credited as the first scientist, wrote a summary of Kitab al-Manazir entitled Perspectiva (Optics) some two hundred years after the death of the scholar known as Alhazen.
Ibn al-Haytham conducted many of his experiments investigating the properties of light during a ten-year period when he was stripped of his possessions and imprisoned as a madman in Cairo. How Ibn al-Haytham came to be in Egypt, why he was judged insane, and how his discoveries launched the scientific revolution are just some of the questions Bradley Steffens answers in Ibn al-Haytham: First Scientist, the world’s first biography of the Muslim polymath.
Midwest Book Review calls Ibn al-Haytham: First Scientist a “fine blend of history and science biography.” Booklistconcurs, praising Ibn al-Haytham: First Scientist as a “clearly written introduction to Ibn al-Haytham, his society, and his contributions.” Kirkus Reviews touts Ibn al-Haytham: First Scientist as ”an illuminating narrative…of a devout, brilliant polymath.” Children’s Literature adds, “Steffens deftly weaves an overview of Islamic history into this biography. Writing for The Fountain, Dr. Ertan Salik adds: “I congratulate Bradley Steffens for his beautiful work about Ibn al-Haythamand his advancement of experimental science.”
Critics are not the only ones praising Ibn al-Haytham: First Scientist; casual readers are lauding it as well. Abdul Jabbar Al-Shammari, the director of the Ibn al-Haitham Center for Science and Technology in Amman, Jordan, writes: “I enjoyed reading about the events in the life of the first scientist, Ibn al-Haitham. I congratulate Bradley Steffens on writing a fantastic and accurate book.” A. Nor of Ohio adds, “I find the book interesting, for it accords and recognizes a Muslim scientist his proper place as the first scientist who is responsible for advocating experimental work in verifying conceived scientific ideas (hypotheses).” And Reformistan blogger Usman Mirza, of Karachi, Pakistan, writes, “As Muslims, we are subject of taunts for our ‘backwardness’ and lack of secular, scientific achievements. I encourage readers to read a book on the ‘first scientist’, a Muslim in Islam’s golden age. It is a nicely written biography of Ibn al-Haytham by a westerner, Bradley Steffens. He has written about a neglected subject that needs to be read by all.”

Dears Readers, Here I am posting some useful information according to my limited ability. You must ask to Almighty GOD for True understanding; Please Study Quran with an open mind and open Heart. Last 1400 years without change in Arabic scripture. Millions of Muslims remembering by heart. East to west, you could not find in any change in original Arabic. It is a miracle. Find out on your own. Translations do not have full explanations, for that reason you have to read some books of scholars.one of the popular scholars of the day was Ibn Taymiyyah.His One book of Emaan has good explanation about Quranic messages.Many non-Muslims have come to incorrectly believe that Allah is the ‘God of Muslims’ – A deity somehow different from the God of the other faiths. It should be emphasised that the term “Allah” has no implied meaning at all of an Arabian god, a Moon god or even a Muslim god. Muslims are not claiming any exclusiveness when they say “Allah”. However Allah is simply the Arabic Name of the one Almighty God; the same name by which Arabic-speaking Jews and Christians, refer to God. The Allah comes from the term ‘al-ilaah’. Al is the definite article in Arabic, equivalent to ‘the’ in English, while ilaah means ‘a deity or god’. So Allah means The God. This is beautifully articulated in the first pillar of Islam which is to believe that God is One, in Arabic it would be,“La ilaha illallah”meaning“There is no god but God”
My best regards
