Recently, while reading Surah Ash-Shu’ara’, I came across the conversations of Anbiya Hazrat Musa (AS) and Hazrat Ibrahim (AS), in which they explained who Allah is, to their people. I produce the same below from the translation ‘Noble Quran’ by Mufti Taqi Usmani. Please note that the Arabic is also so simple that people with even a slight knowledge of Arabic will be able to understand the words without reading the translation. Also, here, I have quoted some other passages from Quran giving more details about Allah.
An excellent clip from the speech of Maulana Tariq Jameel.
When the Kuffar of Makkah heard that our beloved Prophet was calling not only them but the entire humanity towards La Ilaha IllAllah Mohammad Ur Rasool Allah, they revolted as they immediately understood how life altering statement this is. Unfortunately we have lost the actual meaning of this Kalima. In this blog I will try to understand the heavy requirement that this statement (kalima) places on us.
Being a born Muslim, I never got to understand who Allah is, although I was made to follow all his commands. All I knew was that HE is someone big and powerful. It was in the company of Ulema-e-Karaam, that I actually started comprehending Allah as they explained the various verses of the Holy Quran in which Allah has introduced HIMSELF and defined HIS attributes. Without these verses we would have been lost as no human mind can ever be able to comprehend Allah. In this blog I look at some verses from the Holy Quran, which gives a description of Allah.
