Some amazing Quran facts

A little fact about the Amazing Quran

1. An ayat in the Quran that has all 28 alphabet of the Arabic. (Alif & Hamzah is considered 1alphabet) is Surah Fath:29

2. A surah that has Allah in ALL its ayat is surah Mujadillah.

3. Besides 2 Masjidil Haram, Masjid Al-Aqsa & Masjid Quba', there is one mosque mentioned in the Quran (Taubah:107) that is Al-Dirar.

This mosque was situated near Masjid Quba in Madinah. It was built by the munafiquun. It was destroyed by fire.

As Ramadan approaches, let us be closer to the Quran... insyaallah

BPL season 2016

My earlier (Aug-15) prediction for BPL 2016.
 1. Man United
 2. Man City
 3. Arsenal
 4. Chelsea

 My Mid-season (Feb-16) prediction for BPL 2016
 1. Leceister City
 2. Man City
 3. Arsenal
 4. Tottenham

The result is
 1. Leceister City
 2. Arsenal
 3. Tottenham
 4. Man City

I am correct about the top 4 finish

I am correct that MU finished 5th (miss to qualify for European Champions League)

MU won the FA Cup and Man City won the League Cup

Relegated teams are Newcatle United, Norwich City and Aston Villa

Pity that 2 historically successful team with many supporters are relegated (Newcastle and Villa)

Many2 congratulations to Leceister City. Truly2 remarkable achievement!
Hail to Claudio Ranieri

Let me show you something better

Islam is NOT about "Ïslam is better than your religion"

Islam IS "Let me show you something BETTER for you"

If you follow, it will be good for you. If you do not follow, then you are the one who will be at loss.

With this statement is the dakwah to non-Muslim.

If they follow us, well and good

If they do not follow us, truly we have done our obligation to show them something special and they do not want it. Give your best.. and leave the rest (to Allah)

Ya Rabb, make us ALL Muslims and invite us to enter your jannah

This ayats keeps coming in my mind....

Assalamualaikum,

Lately the is this ayat in the Quran that has been appearing in my mind.

Actually this ayat is repeated 4 times in Surah Al-Qalam (54th Surah of Quran)."It appears in 17,22, 32 and 40.

The meaning

And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will learn from it?

This clearly shows that Allah has made the Quran easy for us. No doubt the deeper understanding of the Quran needs more study. But generally Quran is made easy for us to remember and to learn from it.
 
Following each of these ayats is a short story of past ummah that did not follow Allah's reminder and the result is the ummah is being destroyed.
 
Ayat 18-21 People of Ad
Ayat 23-31 People of Tsamud
Ayat 33-39 People of Lut
Ayat 41-44 People of Firaun
 
These ayats clearly demonstrate that:-
 
1. Allah has made Quran easy to understand
 
2. Please2.. take the lesson from the Quran and live with it
 
3. If you do NOT follow Allah's way, then prepare yourselves for destruction
 
Powerful2 ayat. And scary one as well.
 
As slaves of Allah, let us follow Allah's commandments for our own good and well being. It is more for us rather than for Allah.
 
Ya Rabb, make us among your slaves that follow and live by your ayats.
 
Aamiin

My current thoughts

Towards the end of April 2016, my thoughts are always towards remembering Allah.

Lately, by choice or chance, I have been remembering Allah on a constant basis.

There are 2 things that come to my mind when remember Allah:-

1. The gratitude and syukr for ALL the blessings that Allah has given

2. The patience and sabr when Allah tests us ALL in this worldly life

There is no better way to find peace and tranquility than remembering Allah azzawajal.

Ya Rabb, continue to give me this constant rememberance of Allah.

To You we submit and to You we shall return....

Don't be sad/grieve

Lately I have been reflecting on my life so far and what I have achieved.

There are many things that have happened to me that are good and bad as well. They all make life so very interesting.

There are many people that I know. Good and bad ones. Again these people decorated my life.

Sometimes I feel sad for a certain things that has happened to me. But wait a minute.... we are Muslims & Mukmin.

We shall not grieve.
We have Allah with us. In Quran there are 13 verses that emphasis on this:

Baqarah: 38, 62, 112, 262, 274, 277 (6 ayats)
Imran:170 (1 ayat)
Maidah: 69 (1 ayat)
An'Am: 48 (1 ayat)
A'raf: 35 (1 ayat)
Yunus: 62 (1 ayat)
Zumar: 61 (1 ayat)
Ahqaf: 13 (1 ayat)

The meaning "no fear need they have, and neither shall they grieve"

A true Mukmin will not be grieve as ALL in this world and the skies belongs to Allah. Even our own body belongs to Allah and we shall return to Him eventually.

It is okay to grieve for a while as we are humans with emotions. But life goes on..

I began to smile by myself. Indeed Allah makes us feel sad sometimes to draw us closer to Him. Thank Allah for drawing us closer to Him with His Wisdom.

Whatever happens has its purpose. If we can channel back ALL that has happened to Allah, we truly are His slaves.

Ya Rabb, guide us to your straight path.

Aamiin.

I lost my collection of thumb drives

The whole collection of my thumb drives that I collected since 2005 was stolen during the period where my office was under renovation.

Almost all of the thumb drives I got it for free when attending seminars/workshops.












They range from 0.25GB to 8GB.

I felt sad as they are my collection... it means a lot to me as I love my collection.

Wait a minute. This reminds me of life.

Life is a gift from Allah. Allah is my Master. He gives it to His slaves whatever He wishes. He takes whatever He wishes.

Just like my collection of thumb drives, they are gifts that I got. When it is lost, just let go, as it is not yours to feel sad about.

Everything in the skies and the earth belongs to Allah.

Remember Him always and we will be at peace All the time.

Ya Rabb, make me and all of us your slaves that you are pleased upon.

We need your Compassion & your Blessing

Aamiin
