Gist

Lotus trees are known to have alot of thorns but in jannah they wont have any. There will be a tree which will be filled with trees from top to bottom. (Before you on – pause and try to visualize this – SUBHAN ALLAH!)
These trees will provide large and extensive shades and we can hear the soothing sound of rivers and water flowing around.
The fruits there in will be extensive and varied. Allah mentions all fruits will be fresh and in Jannah there will be no forbidden fruit.
WHY IS FORBIDDEN FRUIT MENTIONED?
This teaches us 2 very important points
1. For Adam aleyhi salaam Jannah was a test.
2. When this all ends there will be no more tests.
Our beds, cushions and floors will be raised high. The spouses of Jannah are created in a unique form and they are virgins and previously unmarried. They will be devoted and flirtatious towards their husbands. They will be custom made to attract and retain the love of every man. The spouses will be of equal age and equal intellectual ability. All this is for the people who will be handed their book of deeds in their right hands.
There will be a large number of people from the former and latter generations.
Allah now tells us about the horrifying condition of the people who were handed their book of deeds in their left hands – the ones who failed their test, their fate will be terrible. They will be in
1. Fire.
2. Boiling Hot Water.
3. And in wind that is toxic and which makes you sick.

Ramadan Quran Memorization Challenge – Day 13

Ramadan Quran Memorization ChallengeSurah Ar Rahman ( Verses 57 – 70 )

Names of Allah Learnt

  • None

10 Arabic Words Memorized

  1. Insun – Any Man.
  2. Jannun – Any Jinn.
  3. Yaqutu – Rubies.
  4. Marjanu – Corals.
  5. Illa – But.
  6. Jaza-oo – (the) reward.
  7. Wanakhlun – And Date Palms.
  8. Wa rummanun – And Pomegranates.
  9. Khayratun – (are) good.
  10. Hisanun – and beautiful ones.

Gist

Apart from being beautiful and shy the spouses will be valuable like the rubies and the corals. Allah then asks us why would the reward of good be anything but good – meaning if we do good and righteous deeds we will be rewarded with an equally excellent reward. The other paradise (the better one) is described now, its way more greener. In this paradise the springs are “gushing” and not just “flowing” it is way more beautiful and intense. These gardens will have all kinds of fruits but pomegranate and date palms are particularly pointed out.
The spouses will be of good character as well. They will be perfect inwardly and outwardly – which is impossible in this world.

Ramadan Quran Memorization Challenge – Day 9

Ramadan Quran Memorization ChallengeSurah Ar Rahman (Verses 1 – 14)

Introduction

  • Surah Ar-Rahman means – The Beneficient or The Exceedingly or Unimaginably Merciful.
  • Surah Ar – Rahman occurs in the 27th Juzz and is numbered 55th Surah in the Mushaf. Surah Ar – Rahman consists of 78 Verses.
  • There is a dispute among scholars regarding the categorization of Surah Ar-Rahman as Meccan or Medinan Surah.
  • It consists of a refrain which repeats 31 times.
    Fabi-ayyi ala – i rabbikuma tukaththibaan
    So which of the favours of your lord would you deny?
  • The Surah is organised in the following layout
    a) Description of the greatness of the Qur’an.
    b) Some of Allah‘s favours to humanity.
    c) Criminals.
    d) People who feared punishment of Allah, did good deeds and deserve paradise.
    e) Another Paradise.

Names of Allah Learnt

  1. Ar – Rahman – The Most Gracious / The Most Beneficient / The Most Merciful.

10 Arabic Words Memorized

  1. Khalaqa – He Created.
  2. Bayaan – (the) speech.
  3. Shamsu – Sun.
  4. Qamaru – Moon.
  5. Najmu – Stars.
  6. Shajaru – Trees.
  7. Mizaan – The Balance.
  8. Wazna – The Weight.
  9. Fakhihatun – (is) fruit.
  10. Asfi – Husk.

Gist

Ar-Rahman demands us to stop, reflect and think deeply. When we think about this ayah, it is supposed to be a very personal experience, and we need to think about some of the mercies we are enjoying RIGHT NOW!
In the very next verse Allah gives us the example of His ultimate mercy – QUR’AN. Then the creation of humans is mentioned. Logically the order should be
1. Existence – Humans.
2. Purpose – Qur’an.
WHY IS THIS REVERSED?! Because the purpose of our creation is more important than our existence. Allah has blessed us with speech. We are told about the sun, the moon and the precision and discipline that they follow. Allah points our direction towards sky and how He subhanahu wa’ta’aala holds it firm above us. And how everything is not allowed to transgress the MIZAAN = BALANCE. Yet we as humans whenever we do something unjust are violating this balance set by Allah.
We are instructed to maintain the balance. Allah has blessed us with this beautiful Earth where fruits, trees, scented herbs and husked grain grows.

THEN WHICH OF THE FAVOURS, MIRACLES, WONDERS, POWERS, GIFTS AND BLESSINGS WILL YOU BOTH (jinn and humans) DENY AND DELIBERATELY BE AGAINST!

Allah tells us He created us from clay, we are being put in our place we are nothing but dust!

  10. Jannatin – Gardens.

Gist

Allah tells us how He destroyed this nation with just one shout! He sent no armies of angels because these people were so low they dint deserve it (usually Allah sends an army or a battalion of angels to destruct from the skies/heaven). They rejected every messenger that came to them. In the 31st Verse Allah addresses Quraish and tells them how He erased the previous generations. We see how history is repeating itself with Quriash, Allah says even though the previous generations were erased they will be gathered together in front of Allah in the hereafter.
Allah links it to the similitude of the dead earth and how He subhanahu wa’ta’aala brings it back to life.
In the following verses the second important theme of Surah Yasin that is the concept of tawhid is introduced. We are told how Allah has blessed us with the luxury of palms and grapevines and fruits. Nothing is possible without the facilitation of Allah. Allah is attributing glory and perfection to the One Who created pairs in everything. Allah now points out some pairs that He created like the
NIGHT – DAY
SUN – MOON
And how everything and how they function is a testimony of Allah’s ultimate and sole perfection.
