[Quran Majeed] Ayat ul Birr

#QuranMajeed #MuntakhbNisab #DuraTarjummaeQuran

Summary of #AyatulBirr

  1. #AyatulBirr i.e., reality of virtue is among the longest ayat in Quran Majeed. Like we know #AyatulKursi is also one of the longest and profund ayat, so understanding of all elements of such profund ayat mubaraka is required.

  2. #AyatulBirr is a beautiful explanation of #SurahAlAsr in terms of giving the examples of basic elements of success.

    1. Eman: mentioned 5 Emaniat i.e., having faith in Allah SWT, Day of Judgement, Angles, Divine Books and the Prophets. (Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah , the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets)

    2. Aml e Saleh: mentioned 3 categories i.e., Pain for humanity, Ibadaat and Living by promises. (and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; )

    3. Tawasee-bil-Haq: havent mentioned explicity but is there in between the mentioning of aml e saleh.

    4. Tawasee-bis-sabr: mentioned 3 important and hard times of practicing sabr (and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.)

  1. Topic addressed by the Ayat is about portraying the complete picture of righteousness. Being the crown of the creature, human beings should have some scale of good and bad across which they can gauge their achievements. Our culture and society just help in getting the partial knowledge of goodness so to acquire the complete knowledge we want to ponder upon #AyatulBirr. According to #SurahAlBakara, ayat #85, “adopting partial goodness leads to insult here and fire hereafter” http://quran.com/2/85.

  2. #AyatulBirr addresses the questions like What is righteousness? What is the soul of righteousness? What leads to righteousness? What is the practical form of righteousness? What is the priority setting among different righteousness deeds? What is the peak of righteousness?

  3. In #AyatulBirr, the word birr comes from the root (baa raa raa). Words with the same root conveyed the meaning of peace and satisfaction (i.e., etminaan o sakoon).

  4. Link of Birr with Eman: This ayat mentions 5 emaniat where the three emaniat (Eman on Angles, Divine books and Prophets) are related in terms of Eman bil Risalat. So this ayat is basically addressing three emaniat Eman bil Allah SWT, Eman bil Risalat and Eman bil Yome Akhr (i.e., Day of Judgment).

  5. Wisdom behind starting the topic of righteousness with the mentioning of emaniat is that the driving force of all goodness is the eman. As Ghalid said Jaanta hun sawaab e taa’at o zuhd…prr tbiat idhr nahi aati. Psychology defines it as Pain Pleasure Principle (PPP) i.e., pain driven factors and pleasure driven factors. So pleasure driven factors works for the willingness of Allah SWT (#SurahDahr, Ayat # 8-9) and plain driven factors works with the reasoning on the day of judgment (#SurahAlaq, Ayat # 6-8, #SurahNaaziat, Ayat # 40)

  6. Relationship of righteousness with Eman-e-Salasa (3 Emaaniat) show that the soul of righteousness is eman. Eman bil Allah says that only that act is the act of goodness which aims at ensuring the will of Allah SWT. Eman bil Akhira says that only that act is the act of goodness reward of which is claimed on the day of judgment and the hadees also says the destiny of Rayakaar martyr, scholar and well-spender is fire (Saheh Muslim). Eman e Risaalat says on that act is the act of goodness which is not deviating from sunnah. Sunnat e Nabvi SAWW gives us the scale for the balanced and complete picture of goodness.

[Quran Majeed] Surah AlAsr-Part 2

#QuranMajeed #MuntakhbNisab #DuraTarjummaeQuran

Summary of #SurahAlAsr

  1. Pains of this live are related to the kids, job, relations etc and human being just forget the pain with the passage of the time and this short memory is indeed a blessing else one cant move out of the painful memory. And then after bearing these pains and hardships, man will stand in front of Allah SWT in the day of judgement where his destiny will be announced. Referring to this scenario Hazrat Abu Bakr RA used to say alas I was a bird or a tiny grass particle so that I could save myself from such hard moment. Quran Majeed says that the fear of that day is so severe that the man will say alas I was mud. So in this scenario, all human beings are in lost and relief is an exceptional case.

  2. WalAsr refers that the Time is the witness. Getting to know what is Asr. Just think a human being as a trader of ice. The sooner he make the sale the sooner he make the profit. For the trader of ice, every single moment is important and decisive in defining the fate of the day. And this is the time which is there since the start and will remain here till the end so it is witness among us all.

  3. Now comes the third ayat of #SurahAlAsr that gives us hope and motivate us to work out for ensuring the eternal success. There are four basic stages of this package. Eman, Aml e Saleh, Tawasee bil Haqq and Tawasee bis Sabr.

  4. Eman: Faith comes from accepting the realities of this universe and man is insufficient in getting all facts on his own. So one requires some more authentic source of knowledge i.e., Quran Majeed. There are two elements of eman a) Iqrar bil leesaan: Accepting by tongue and b) Tasdeeq bil Qalb: Confirming by heart. This heart’s confirmation ensures the completeness of eman. We say that fire burns but if we didnt confirm it by heart we will for sure going to test fire by putting our finger once in it. This is the confirmation by heart that later leads to Aml e Saleh.

  5. Aml e Saleh: Following the good (Halaal) and keeping oneself save from bad (Haraam). Rasool Allah SAWW put high emphasis on aml e saleh while relating it to eman. Hazrat Anas RA narrated that in almost every khutabah Rasool Allah SAWW used to remind us that a man has no emaan if he doesnt keep the promise and if he is dishonest.

  6. Tawassao comes from waseeyat and in urdu we used to relate it with ending messages of someone before death but in Arabic waseeyat is something said like “Intehai ehtemam k sath baham aik dosry ko talqeen krna”. And this talqeen will be of Haqq and Sabr.

  7. Tawasee bil Haqq: What makes a fact Haqq? Its nazar, aqal, ikhlaq and maqsadeeyat that make the Haq, Haq and the batil, batil. Tawasee bil Haq is about struggling in a way to establish the Laws of Allah SWT in the land of Allah SWT in short amr bil maaroof and nahe anil munkar.

  8. Tawasee bis sabr: It is said that “Al Haqqo marrun”, Truth is bitter. So on the way of inviting other towards Haqq one will face opposition, hatred, insult and much more and there comes the need of Sabr.

  9. Once again, point to ponder is that there is AND in between four not OR.

  10. May Allah SWT help us all live according to the commands of #SurahAlAsr and #QuranMajeed. Aameen

[Quran Majeed] Surah AlAsr Part-1

#QuranMajeed #MuntakhbNisab #DuraTarjummaeQuran

Summary of #SurahAlAsr

  1. Four basics of Success: 1) Eman 2) Good Deeds 3) Invitation to Goodness 4) Patience for the sake of Allah.

  2. Good deeds in the individuals matters, family concerns, socio-economic goodness and political goodness.

  3. In Quran Majeed, there are only three Surahs having 3 ayat in them and each of them is profound in its nature. #SurahAlAsr is profound in number of dimensions, some of them are: 1) It is among the starting revelations and such Surahs are too concrete that number of later surahs explain the deep elements of such starting surahs. 2) It is complete. 3) It is profound and is like a seed containing huge tree inside.

  4. Imam Shafi RA said that for those who want guidance, this surah alone is enough. Also he narrated that Sahaba Karam RA used to receite this Surah before saying farewell salaam in their daily routine.

  5. #SurahAkhlas is too profound in explaining Tauheed and same is #SurahAlAsr, explaining the purpose of life and ways of achieving success. The central ayat saying “No doubt, all human beings are in loss” is the main ayat in terms of emphasis and placement.

  6. Composition of #Surah AlAsr is like first we have Qasam (Wal Asr), then reason of Qasam (Innal insaanna laafi khhusr) and in the end there is an exceptional case (Innallazeena aamano, wa aamelus salehat e watawa sao bil haq e watawa sao bis sbr). In this surah almost all of Arabic ways of emphasis in speech are used.

  7. In worldly life the scale of success is get decided by wealth, property, status, degrees, power, promotions etc and according to this scale Firoun and Qaroon are the successful people? No, because according to #SurahAlAsr, the successful people are the ones having Eman, doing good deeds, those who invite to goodness and remain patient in the way of Allah SWT. Point to ponder is that there is AND in between four not OR.

  8. In #SurahAlAsr, there is no mentioning of high rewards for those fulfilling the FOUR commands but these FOUR makes bare minimum criteria to avoid being lost. If we call this criteria, the prescription from The Most Wise, then we can’t think of adding or subtracting any single parameter among the FOUR. Because after doing so, it will no more guarantee the success.

  9. The reason of the failure of us all being the Muslims of 21st century is that we thought that our faith is sufficient for our survival and this is the reason that we didn’t bother to practice the remaining necessary and sufficient conditions.

  10. Two main aspects of understanding Quran Majeed are the tazzakkur and the taddabur. Tazzakur refers to getting the lessons and Quran Majeed says that “We make Quran easy for zikr”. Taddabur requires pondering upon and reflecting on the messages conveyed. In this Surah, khhasara is not of the few thousands but of never-ending life. So can’t move forward without understanding this central ayat.

  11. Pains of this live are related to the kids, job, relations etc and human being just forget the pain with the passage of the time and this short memory is indeed a blessing else one cant move out of the painful memory. And then after bearing these pains and hardships, man will stand in front of Allah SWT in the day of judgement where his destiny will be announced. Referring to this scenario Hazrat Abu Bakr RA used to say alas I was a bird or a tiny grass particle so that I could save myself from such hard moment. Quran Majeed says that the fear of that day is so severe that the man will say alas I was mud. So in this scenario, all human beings are in lost and relief is an exceptional case.

[Aazadi March]Imran Khan’s Speech: People of Trees

Despite difference of opinion with Aazadi Dangal and showing zero performance in KPK, I found something very interesting in IK’s Speech Today on 16th August, 2014 around 5:45pm.

He said, See those people on trees, they don’t care about rain, don’t know how they reached there but these people show the capacity of Pakistani’s … Pakistani’s need no loan from abroad.

The funny point is

YES, people on trees need no money (no doubt loan is not encouraged)

People on trees can eat tree fruits; NO FOOD REQUIRED,

People on trees need no homes; TREE ITSELF IS  HOME,

People on trees need no land; TREE WILL BE THEIR PROPERTY,

On the birth of kid, just plant a tree and when the kid is grown up, instead of offering him/her the separate room; move him/her to his/her tree :D,

No need of dresses; CAN WEAR LEAVES,


In short living on trees is something that is appreciated by Imran Khan.

So PTI is progressing, as people are learning to climb trees.

IK is a tarzon who will just jump from one tree to another and will change Pakistan into a Tree Country (Bhag dor tu boht ki hai :p).

But IK, King of Jungle is Lion not Batman :)

IK! kindly plan on realistic grounds. Don’t lead our nation to fool’s paradise please. Show us some model of New Pakistan in KPK first.

May Allah SWT be the Hami o Nasir of Pakistan. Aameen

Dear brothers and sisters in Gaza!

I might not be able to face you on the day of judgement because you have put such a big responsibility on our shoulders. I wish you hadn’t called us along with the leaders of Jannah – Syedna Umer R.A. and Salahuddin Ayyubi. And I might also not be able to show face to Allah who gave Pakistan such a status that His people are looking at us for help! O Allah! Please do not take my soul until our brothers and sisters in Gaza forgive us for not being able to stop the oppressor.

Did Quresh Win the Battle of Ohad?

Well, following are the quick 7 points that shed light on the findings and tie of Battle of Ohad:

  1. Quresh didn’t get the control of the Muslim Camp.
  2. Despite tough circumstances, Muslims fought and shielded Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.W (the gestures of warriors-light bearer).
  3. Not a single Muslim was captivated in this battle of Uhad.
  4. Quresh didn’t come for the third round of Battle and left the battle ground.
  5. Quresh didn’t collect booty (Maal e Ghaneemat).
  6. At that time, winner used to stay 3 days or so in the battle ground to confirm their success but quresh didn’t stay for few hours to collect booty.
  7. Madina is few miles away from the battle of Ohad but quresh didn’t dare to invade Madina where no resistant was there for quresh at that particularly.

May Allah SWT bless Ummat e Muslima with eternal success. Aameen.

Labour’s Day – Where and for what to strive


And that there is not for man except that [good] for which he strives [Al Quran 53:39]

Who will succeed?

We all are striving for something. Muslims, Christians and Jews are all working hard and just a Kalima e Tayyaba will decide our ultimate destiny either Jannat or Jahanam.

What to do?

Should I do social work? To donate a wheel chair, to arrange electric water cooler, to gift sewing machine to a widow, to sponsor  any orphan’s education etc. Definitely I will opt one having everlasting results. Is it the best option to save our soul from hell fire and to give our soul an eternal peace i.e. The Heaven as this soul help us in this world and once we are on right path, then the core responsibility is to save others from the hell fire.

NTB: No doubt the above mentioned social work has its own importance but what matters most is the ultimate success or lost  and everlasting peace and pain etc.

How to do?

To save ourselves and mankind we first need to get sound knowledge of our religion- Yes, here it refers to same or even more quality knowledge in terms of learning Arabic, Tafseer, Hadees, Seerat e Nabvi SAWW, Seerat e Sahaba R.A, Seerat e Sahabiat R.A and ofcourse Tajweed and other basic and advance Islamic education as compare to our efforts to get PhD in Software Engineering etc.

To whom should I trust?

To whom should I put my trust therein. There are number of school of thoughts, masaliqs and people are promoting their own interests. What we can do is to join good institute or authentic teacher who clicks more to our heart (we can switch to other institutions if we found someone more convincing and promising) and then to start justifying our skills. DO REMEMBER, THE MORE INTELLECTUALS WE ARE, THE MORE TOUGH OUR RESPONSIBILITIES WILL BE.

Some good sources:

Mafhoom e hadees “Momin Likes for his brother what he likes for himself”. So here goes sources of my learning.

1) Tajweed lectures by Ustad Wisam (approx 10mins videos are there at youtube)

2) Tafseer Lectures by Dr Israr Ahmad

3) Arabic Learning by Ustab Amir Sohail

4) Hadees Lectures by Dr Israr Ahmad (42 ahadees of Arbaeen e Nabvi SAWW)

And many more

My Excuse?

OK but I am busy in 8am-5pm web development job plus I am PhD scholar and also a female having other “NECESSARY” tasks and don’t have enough time for reading ABC of Islam. Well, then better to be prepared for …

If we people can manage to do almost every challenging job in toughest schedule then why we are so excus-ive towards learning and practicing Islam, poor souls we are Ya Arhammur Rahemeen.

Say, [O Muhammad], “If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.” [Al Quran 9:24]

“For each [religious following] is a direction toward which it faces. So race to [all that is] good. Wherever you may be, Allah will bring you forth [for judgement] all together. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent. [Al Quran: 2:148]”
