The Quran which is the Holy Book of the Muslims, is compiled on the revelations that came to The Prophet, Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him). It is a book for all ages and all people and contains lesson of immense wisdom. It only needs a sensitive heart and a true insight to understand the lessons of The Quran!
In this blog, I shall add from time to time,the Quranic verses that inspire me and keep me moving ahead in life! All those who visit this blog, are cordially invited to join me. Mail or inbox me the Quranic verses you like most, you can also share incidents about how a particular verse helped you face the different faces of life. Insha Allah, I shall keep updating this blog, so please be sure to be a part of it!
Here, I would like to clarify to my readers that although reading and pondering on the meanings of Quranic Verses often gives a new direction to our thoughts and if Allah so wills, sometimes completely transforms our lives, it should be strictly kept in mind that the Ajr o Sawaab (reward) of reciting the Holy Quran is only in its true ARABIC FORM! Please do not get carried away by declarations that the reward to read the translation of the Quran is the same as its revealed form i.e.Arabic!!
They (the righteous) perform their vows, and they fear a Day whose evil flies far and wide.
And they feed for the love of Allah, the indigent, the orphan and
(Saying) we feed you for the sake of Allah alone: no reward do we
desire from you, nor thanks.
We only fear a day of distressful wrath from the side of our Lord.
But Allah will deliver them from the evil of that day, and will shed
over them a light of beauty and blissful joy.
O you who believe! Fear ALLAH, and let every soul look to what
(provision) he has sent forth for the morrow. Yes, fear ALLAH, for
ALLAH is well-acquainted with all that you do.
And be you not like those who forgot ALLAH; And HE made them
forget their own souls! Such are the rebellious transgressors!
Sura Al-Hashar Ayat 18,19
Touching Quranic Ayat
(To be recited when one is in distress)
Or who listens to the (soul) distressed when it calls
on Him, and Who relieves it”s suffering,and makes
you (mankind) inheritors of the earth? (Can there be
another) god besides Allah? Little it is that you heed.
Sura Al Naml
“Our Lord! Forgive us our sins, blot out from us our iniquities, and
take to yourself our souls in the company of the righteous.
Our Lord! Grant us what you promised unto us through Your
Apostle (PBUH), and save us from shame on the Day of Judgment:
for You never break Your promise.”
Sura Al e Imran: Part of Ayat 93 and Ayat 94
When I muse on my sins and despair seizes my heart this Quranic verse consoles me:
Say: O my servants who have transgressed against their souls!
Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for
He is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful.
Turn to your Lord (in repentance) and bow to His Will, before the
Chastitement comes on you: after that you shall not be helped.
Sura Al- Zumar, Ayat 53-54
An inspiration in adversities!
Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some
loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad
tidings to those who patiently persevere.
Who say, when afflicted with calamity: “To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return”.
They are those on whom (descend) blessings from Allah, and Mercy,
and they are the ones that receive guidance.
Sura Al Baqarah Ayat 155-157
If you reject (Allah), Truly Allah has no need of you; but He does
not like ingratitude from His servants, if you are grateful He is
pleased with you. No bearer of burdens can bear the burdens of
another. In the End, to your Lord is your Return, when He will tell
you the truth of all that you did (in this life). For He knows well all that is in (men’s) hearts.
When some trouble touches man, he cries unto his Lord, turning to
Him in repentance; but when He bestows a favour upon him as from
Himself, (man ) forgets what he cried and prayed for before, and he
sets up rivals to Allah, thus misleading others from Allah’s path.
Sura Al Zamar Ayat 7,8
7- 6- 2012, My favourite DUA in the Quran:
On no soul Allah places a burden greater than it can bear. It gets
every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns.
(Pray) Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; Our
Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which you did lay on people
before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have
strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have
mercy on us. You are our Protector; help us against those who
stand against Faith.
Sura Al Baqarah Ayat No 286

Say: “O Allah, Lord of all dominion! You give power
to whom You please, and You strip off power from whom You please:

“You cause the night to turn into day, and You
cause the day to turn into night; You bring forth the Living from
the dead, and You bring forth the dead from the living,; and You
give sustenance without measure to whom You please.”
