Arabic-English Dictionary Of Qur’anic Usage

Language: Arabic – English | Format: PDF | Pages: 1097 | Size: 8 MB

The Qur’an is the living source of all Islamic teaching, and is of singular importance to those interested in Islam and the study of religions. Despite this, there exists a long-felt lack of research tools for English first-language speakers who wish to access the Qur’an in the original Arabic. The Dictionary of Qur’anic Usage is the first comprehensive, fully-researched and contextualised Arabic-English dictionary of Qur’anic usage, compiled in accordance with modern lexicographical methods by scholars who have a lifelong immersion in Qur’anic Studies. Based on Classical Arabic dictionaries and Qur’an commentaries, this work also emphasises the role of context in determining the meaning-scatter of each vocabulary item. Illustrative examples from Qur’anic verses are provided in support of the definitions given for each context in which a particular word occurs, with cross-references to other usages. Frequently occurring grammatical particles are likewise thoroughly explained, insofar as they are used in conveying various nuances of meaning in the text. Continue reading

The Clear Qur’anic Exegesis

All praise is due to Allah Who revealed the Qur’an. Peace and blessings be upon the Prophet who was characterized by the morals that mentioned in the Qur’an, upon his family, his Companions who taught the Qur’an and upon those who followed them righteously of the nation of the Qur’an.

The Glorious Qur’an is a book of guidance, rulings, behaviors, `Aqidah (faith), admonish, stories, recommendations, lessons, good news and warnings. Allah has sent it down to be the seal of the divine Scriptures, a reference to the people, and a constitution for them in their affairs as long as they live. Despite the greatness of the Qur’an, its majesty and its perfect rulings, people have turned away from it except for a few. The attacks against the Qur’an were powerful and well-schemed by the enemies of Islam in order to distort the Muslims’ source of power; which almost happened. We ask Allah to gather us under the banner of truth, make us superior through our religion and give us victory over the disbelievers in order that the Qur’an would be the reference of rulings and the source of knowledge from which all people extract knowledge everywhere. It is the miraculous speech of Allah which no one can innovate something of the like or even part of it. It came to us successively from narrators and reporters who could never tell a lie. It was written down in sheets as it was preserved in the memories of people. When the Qur’an was revealed to Muhammad (peace be upon him), Allah took the responsibility of preserving it; not as the previous Scriptures.

Allah (Glory be to Him) says:

إِنَّا نَحۡنُ نَزَّلۡنَا ٱلذِّكۡرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ ۥ لَحَـٰفِظُونَ

Verily, We, it is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur’ân) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). [Al Hijr: 9].

There are many sciences related to the Qur’an which scholars have studied and written many books about such as the reasons of revelation, the connections between the Ayahs, Tafsir, similarities, precise and allegorical Ayahs, Surahs that were revealed in Makkah and those of Madinah, weird words, rulings, recitations, Tajwid (art of Qur’anic recitation), grammar and parsing, calligraphy, record, virtues, proprieties of recitation, examples, stories, abrogating and abrogated texts; and miraculousness with all its types. The Qur’anic exegesis is covetable and advisable.

Allah (Glory be to Him) says:

كِتَـٰبٌ أَنزَلۡنَـٰهُ إِلَيۡكَ مُبَـٰرَكٌ۬ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوٓاْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُوْلُواْ ٱلۡأَلۡبَـٰبِ

(This is) a Book (the Qur’ân) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings, that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember. [Sad: 29].

Allah (He may be Glorified) says:

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ‌ۚ

Do they not then consider the Qur’ân carefully? [Al Nisa’: 82].

We can not reflect on Ayahs (Qur’anic verses) but after understanding it. All these Ayahs can not be understood except after studying Tafsir. Allah vituperated the people of the Scriptures because they had concealed knowledge and did not explain it to the people.

Allah (Glory be to Him) says:

وَإِذۡ أَخَذَ ٱللَّهُ مِيثَـٰقَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ لَتُبَيِّنُنَّهُ ۥ لِلنَّاسِ وَلَا تَكۡتُمُونَهُ ۥ فَنَبَذُوهُ وَرَآءَ ظُهُورِهِمۡ وَٱشۡتَرَوۡاْ بِهِۦ ثَمَنً۬ا قَلِيلاً۬‌ۖ فَبِئۡسَ مَا يَشۡتَرُونَ

(And remember) when Allâh took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) to make it (the news of the coming of Prophet Muhammad SAW and the religious knowledge) known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it, but they threw it away behind their backs, and purchased with it some miserable gain! And indeed worst is that which they bought. [Al `Imran: 187]. Therefore, we should not be like them, otherwise, our destiny will be like theirs. Continue reading

Tajweed Rules Of The Qur’an (3 Part Set)

Every single Muslim has to recite Qur’an in Salah but many of us do not realize that reciting the Qur’an correctly, observing the rules of recitation (tajweed) is not an advanced science for expert reciters alone, rather it is an obligation upon each and every one of us whenever we recite the Qur’an.

This set of 3 renowned books on learning the Tajweed rules of the Quran will help one to understand the tajwed rules and correct their recitation with the help of a teacher. Insha-Allah. It is also great Islamic schools & Quran teachers to teach their students.

The 3 books can also be purchased individually from the links under the related items section below (you can also see more info & sample pages from the individual books there).

This is a guide for studying tajweed. The student who uses this book is expected to have a basic grasp of Arabic before starting this course. The student should know all the Arabic letters and vowels and be able to read at an elementary level. This book is either for an English speaking student studying the Qura’an in an Arabic environment, but needing explanation of the Arabic terms in English, or a student studying the explanations of tajweed in English, but learning the basic concepts in Arabic so they may integrate into the Arabic terms and definitions throughout the book, since the science of tajwid is an Arabic science.

The Qur’an And You

Tariq Mehanna
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 65 | Size: 1 MB

By Tariq Mehanna, Written in Plymouth Correctional Facility Isolation Unit – Cell #108

Tariq Mehanna is a 27 year old American-born Muslim Egyptian. Highly educated, he holds a doctorate in pharmacy from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy. He is a devout, tolerant Muslim who is not only respected in the local Islamic and interfaith communities, but who also gives back to his community by fulfilling the roles of brother, educator, mentor, scholar, and friend. Tariq is described by those who know him well as humble, reserved, warm, peaceful, charismatic, knowledgeable, and dedicated.

For several years Tariq has been a victim of FBI surveillance and harassment. When Tariq refused to backstab the Muslim community and be an informant for the FBI, they continually threatened him before taking an opportunity to arrest him in 2008. While Tariq was out on bail, FBI agents raided his home with an arrest warrant on October 21st, 2009.

Tariq was arrested again despite the lack of any new evidence since the prior apprehension. He is currently being held in solitary confinement, facing accusations of aiding and abetting terrorism. All of these FALSE charges have been fabricated by paid FBI informants. We ask you to join us to support our brother until he is released and home with his loving family. Continue reading

An Authentic Collection of the Qur’anic Information with Maps, Tables and Pictures

This Atlas is new in its subject, a subject that has not been touched before. It helps whoever recites the Qur’an or studies it to specify the locations mentioned by the Noble Verses, and to mark those places of ancient people mentioned in the Qur’an. This is besides locating areas where the incidents of the prophetic Seerah occurred. Eventually the diligent reader will easily recognize those places, learn about them, and take heed of them while reciting.

Eventually the diligent reader will easily recognize those places, learn about them, and take heed of them while reciting. The Atlas has also revealed obscure places we used to pass through inattentively, like the site where Nuh’s Ark settled, the site of the curved Sand-hills {Al Ahqah}, the cave of the young faithful men, the houses of median, the site of Sodom and other places determined by the Atlas depending on reliable sources.

Thus the Atlas eliminates all the guessing and the fantasies we used to encounter when reciting the Noble Quran, and takes us to the specific place. Continue reading
