Rank #3: Year 6 - Surah 35 (Fãtir), Verses 38-45

Podcast cover
Read more

As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection concludes Surah 35, Fãtir or the Originator, verses 38-45. These verses assert that God has not sent any Book which had a provision allowing Shirk (or associating others with Allah). To that end, plotting evil will recoil on none but its author and if God were to punish people for their wrongdoing, not even an animal would be left around them.

Rank #4: Year 6 - Surah 35 (Fãtir), Verses 15-37

Podcast cover
Read more

As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection is from Surah 35, Fãtir or the Originator, verses 15-37. These verses assert that mankind is in need of God, not the other way around. The living and the dead are not alike; you cannot make those who are buried in the grave hear you. Finally those who recite the Qur'an, establish prayer and give charity may hope for God's blessings and rewards whereas those who disbelieve shall have the painful punishment of everlasting hell-fire.

Podcast cover
Read more

As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection is from Surah 35, Fãtir or the Originator, verses 1-14. These verses assert that none can withhold or award blessings besides Allah. Those who consider evil deeds to be good cannot be guided to the Right Path. Honor comes from obedience to God. And finally, how dieties besides Allah can neither hear nor even own a thread of a date-stone.

Rank #6: Year 6 - Surah 39 (Az-Zumar), Verses 22-41

Podcast cover
Read more

As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection is from Surah 39, Az-Zumar or the Crowds, verses 22-41. In this selection we learn that the Qur'an is consistent in its verses but repeats its teachings in different ways. God has cited every kind of parable in the Qur'an so that people may clearly understand. Who can be more wicked than the one who invents a lie against God? Lastly, if God intends to harm you, no one can save you and if God intends to bless you, no one can prevent that either.

As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection is from Surah 39, Az-Zumar or the Crowds, verses 1-21. In this selection, the mushrikeen try to justify their worship of saints by saying, 'they bring us closer to Allah'. On the Day of Judgment, no one shall bear the burdens of another. Believers who cannot practice their faith should immigrate to a place where they can practice. Lastly, no one can be rescued from punishment once the sentence has been decreed by God.
