    Salamun alaykum Tafsir Nimoonih explains this verse as follows:

    Why is the Quran in that order?

    Salamun alaykum There are three different categories of reports about the compilation of the Quran: First: the present Quran is the very same Quran that the Prophet Muhammad gathered, collated, compiled and structured for Muslims during his life at the instigation of Allah. Although he himself did not collect the verses but the Quran was compiled under his supervision. Second: The Quran in its present form was collected and completed by the Commander of the Faithful, Ali (a.s) following the demise of the Holy Prophet (s). The compilation was done during the time when Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was confined to his house living a secluded life. Third: The Quran was compiled after the demise of the Prophet (s) by some of the companions (sahaba) other than Imam Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã. A great many Shia scholars especially the contemporaries maintain that the Quran was compiled at the time of the Holy Prophet himself and under his supervision. If we even accept that the Quran was compiled after prophet and by companions, it doesn't mean that the present Quran is not trustful because the companions gathered the Quran based on following narration and this narration can be taken as an answer to your question: There is a narration that the prophet states: So the Quran starts with chapter Al hamd because it's known as Fatihat al kitab or Umm al kitab and then seven great chapters then Mathani chapters then Meein then Mufassalat then Short chpaters.

    Question

    Salamun alaykum Sometimes we don't mention names of people for many reasons. the reason is different from situation to situation. Sometimes we don't mention names because we don't like to determine whom we are addressing. In some cases فلان و فلان is used as a general word and we are allowed to change it to a person we want to address. as in prays. In some cases there is no need to determine whom we are addressing so we use فلان و فلان. would be better to share the file.

    Need help understanding this Hadith [Parable]

    I think by considering some verses of the Quran related to hypocrites, we understand this Hadeeth better. The Quran states: This hadeeth says a faithful should not make friends with hypocrites because this friendship doesn't benefit a faithful. like a trunk of a palm tree which doesn't fit any place so it doesn't benefit his owner; a hypocrite doesn't benefit his faithful friend( Sahib either means friend or owner, both are true). For instance, in hardship one can not count on a hypocrite; because a hypocrite is used to showing off in some situations for his own benefit not for others.

    What does this hadith mean?

    Salamun alaykum I found like this Hadith in "Greater sins" book regardless of some differences, the meaning is the same. The Hadith you mentioned is about Ria ( showing off). According to the Quran and narrations, deceitful( riakar) is as the same as Mushrik and since Mushrik will be led towards the hell-fire, the same will be done to a deceitful person. The Quran states: And in the chapter Al-Ma'un, the Quran states: God has many attributes like Hakim and Adil; that is He Almighty wont punish anyone before making him known Allah's commands and orders; as the Quran states: So by considering the above mentioned verses we realize what "will make known to him his favors and he will recognize them" means. It means Before punishment, God will ask from anyone, ' didn't I send you a messenger to make known to you all my commands and these were my commands which were obligatory for you to fulfill them did you know them all?' so then all of us will confirm and will say: 'yes, we knew them all'. I hope I could help you.

    Is Ruqya a Shia practice as well'?

    Salamun alaykum The verses 54, If you mean by Ruqya, some duas and verses performed to stop the bad and evil of human and jin “devils”, then yes. It's a practice of Shia. The verses 54-56 which they are called "the verses of Sukhrah" and to perform it one should recite these verses 70 times ( "70 times" is according to Ayatullah Ahmad Abedi). According to some narrations reciting these verses protects us from devils and magic and so on. It's mentioned in -Al-Fagih one of four main books of Shia- that: One of advice of the Holy Prophet to Imam Ali (upon whom be peace) “O Ali if one is fearful of a magician or an evil, he should recite: انّ ربّکم الله الذی خلق السّموات و الارض فی ستّة ایّام ثمّ استوی علی العرش الی آخرالآیه In the book Al-Kafi, Asbag ibn Nabateh narrates from Imam Ali (upon whom be peace) : “Whoever wants to spend a night in a wild land (or in the desert) and he recites انّ ربّکم الله الذی خلق السّموات و الارض to تبارک الله ربّ العالمین, angels will protect him and devils will get away from him. Then Asbag extends: a man reached a ruined place on his way and he wanted to spend a night therein and didn't recite the above-mentioned verse suddenly evils covered him (it may means evils sat on his body and started bothering him) and held his nose. His partner said respite him. On hearing this that man woke up and recited the above-mentioned verse and after that evil said to his partner:"God degraded you. You must protect him till he enters upon the time of the morning. Then he returned to Imam Ali and informed Him about his story... . After rising of the sun that man found evils' hair in that place. [al- kafi, vol,2, pg,626] I think discussion on whether it's one verse or three it's as well as Ayatul kursi. But famous scholars say "the verses of Sukhrah" Sources : Mustadrakul-Wasa’il, vol. 4, pg. 169; Man La Yahduruhul-Faqih, vol. 2, pg. 521, hadith 3134; Jami’ul-Da’awat, pg. 19; Usul Kafi, vol. 1, book of hujjah, pg. 279; Mir’atul-Uqul, vol. 1, pg. 252; Usul Kafi, vol. 2, pg. 392; see: Hasan HasanZadeh Amoli, Hezaro Yek Nokteh, nokteh no. 978, pg. 799.
  7. Actually Quran is a miracle but from different points of view. In addition to the scientific and historical points of view, the Qur"an also possesses an astounding, inimitable style from the literary perspective and on top of all that this book is brought and shown by an untaught prophet. One example that we can give is the verse regarding The Retaliation. The Quran states:” And there is life for you in the retaliation, 0 men of understanding, that you guard yourselves (against evil):”[2:179] This verse points to the philosophy of this legislation. It aims at removing a possible misunderstanding that - because Allah has allowed remission and blood-money, and also because remission expands the circle of mercy and affection - remission is more in con­formity with public weal and social good. The verse shows that, although remission is alleviation based on mercy, common good and society's peace depend on the retaliation. The only guarantee of life is the law of retaliation, and not remission, blood-money, or any other thing. Man has to accept this fact, if he has understanding. "that you may guard yourselves" that is, from murder. It gives the basic of the law of retaliation. Ref: http://www.almizan.org/ Allamah Tabatabai, one of great commentators of Shia considering the above verse, writes in his commentary of the Quran: The scholars have said that the verse, "and there is life for you in the retaliation," is one of the most eloquent in its clarity, and the most refined in rhetoric, in addition to its having many other fine literary points, like brevity - it has so few words and such a small number of total letters - fluency of style and clarity of composition. It combines the force of argument with beauty of meaning, the fineness of proof with clarity of result. Before this verse was revealed, the Arabs were fond of some adages and maxims (on the subject of murder and retaliation), of whose rhetoric and fluency they were very proud. For example: 'To kill some is to keep alive all', and 'To increase killing is to decrease killing'. And the most remarkable in their eyes was the sentence: 'Killing stamps out killing.' But when this verse was revealed all were forgotten. Some of its distinguishing points are as follows: The verse has fewer letters, and is easy to pronounce. "the retaliation" with definite article is a proper noun, while "life " is common noun - it shows that the resulting good is greater and more widespread than the retaliation. It explains the result in clear words and describes the real philosophy of the law, that is, the life. It unambiguously shows by what means the desired result can be obtained: Obviously, it is the retaliation that leads to life, and not the killing. (After all, many killings are done unjustly, and they do not lead to life, they are negation of life.) The word, "retaliation," covers also other punishments besides killing, that is, the reprisal in the matter of injury, etc. - and such retributions too lead to the society's life. The word conveys another extra meaning, as it shows that the retribution has resulted from unjust killing. (Compare it with their maxim, "Killing stamps out killing", which does not give any idea that "killing" refers to any punishment.) Then there is an exhortation in this sentence, as it points to a life reserved for the people, whom they are oblivious of; it behooves them to take hold of it as it really belongs to them; it is as if someone tells you: There is a property belonging to you with so-and-so, or in such and such a place. Lastly, the opening word of the verse, that is, "for you" makes it clear to the men of understanding that the law-giver only desires to protect their interest, and no benefit is ever to accrue to him. These are a few of the fine points found in this verse. The scholars have mentioned some more points, which may be seen in the books of rhetoric. The fact is, the more deeply you look at this verse, the more dazzled you shall be by its brilliance and radiance; and the word of Allah is the highest. Ref: http://www.almizan.org/ Other example is the verse 102 of surah Al-Baqarah. I refer you to the following link http://www.almizan.org/

    Women are evil?

    Salamun alaykum This is 238th saying of Nahjulbalagah and the arabic text is, «الْمَرْأَةُ شَرٌّ کُلُّهَا وَ شَرُّ مَا فِیهَا أَنَّهُ لَا بُدَّ مِنْهَا» So if we just could translate the Hadith the way mentioned above we wouldn't accept it because it'd contradicted the Quran. Because in many verses of the Quran, God Almighty has considered women and dealing with them as good not evil. The Quran states: " Consort with them in an honourable manner; and should you dislike them, maybe you dislike something while Allah invests it with an abundant good."[4:19] or when "Moses watered [their flock] for them(two daughters of Shu‘ayb ). Then he withdrew toward the shade and said, ‘My Lord! I am indeed in need of any good You may send down to me!" and God after that answered Him by causing him to marry with daughter of Shu‘ayb. If Imam Ali (upon whom be peace) has meant the above translation so we should say He has contradicted the Quran and other fundamental principles of Islam which this idea is not true But we can translate this narration this way: if we say Imam Ali stated this narration in special circumstances that we don't know and He has meant by 'evil' a meaning like « inconvenience , trouble or hot potato» and this meaning of the word (al shar) is common even in the Quran. There is a verse that states: " إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعًا إِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ جَزُوعًا " "Indeed man has been created covetous.anxious when an ill befalls him"[70:20] Indeed no one wants to get into trouble and anyone wants to run away from it but Women is on of those troubles that one can not do without it There is a saying in Persian like this: "woman is a calamity and may no house be without it" Since this proverb is sort of satirical and doesn't offend any anyone, maybe the above narration is similar.

    The Quran and The Slavery

    salamun alaykum I meant to say the Quran's point of view but mostly slavery has been countered by narrations and the Prophet and his successors inshaallah after providing an article regarding Islam's point of view I'll send it thanks
  10. The Quran has countered slavery but not directly but throughout bringing some teachings and commands to change the attitude and mentality of the whole society so that after emancipation, slaves would become its full-fledged members. And this way of war against slavery was because of some circumstances at the advent of Islam. As historians say: How the Quran started a war against slavery I just mention some verses: “O you men! We have created you of a male and a female, and then We made you (into different) races and tribes so that you may know (and recognise) each other. Surely the most honourable of you with Allah is the one who is most pious among you; surely Allah is All-Knowing and Aware.”(49:13) This verse makes clear the view point of Islam as regards human life on earth. It lays down only one criterion of superiority or honour and that is piety, which means complete obedience to the will of God. It annihilates all man-made and artificial distinctions of race and colour which we find all over the world even now. To explain the qualities of piety, let us note what Allah says: “It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards the East and the West, righteousness is this that one should believe in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book and the Prophets, and give away wealth out of love for Him to the near of kin, the orphans, the needy, the wayfarer, the beggars and to those in bondage and keep up prayers, pay the poor-rate; and those who fulfil their promise and the patient ones in distress and affliction and in the time of war - these are they who are the truthful and these are they who are pious.” (The Qur'an 2:177) This verse clearly shows that by itself there is no specific virtue in turning towards any particular direction for prayer. (The unity of the Qiblah indicates the unity of faith which leads to spiritual unity and culminates in physical harmony.) The belief and practice enjoined in the verse are the real virtues, and apart from being ordered by God, they appeal to human reasoning. Please mark that “to give away wealth out of love for God to...those in bondage” is one of them. And we see in the Quran following commands stress on setting free slaves: “As for those who seek an emancipation deal from among your slaves, make such a deal with them if you know any good in them, and give them out of the wealth of Allah which He has given you” [24:33] “A believer may not kill another believer, unless it is by mistake. Anyone who kills a believer by mistake should set free a believing slave, and pay blood-money to his family, unless they remit it in charity. If he belongs to a people that are hostile to you but is a believer, then a believing slave is to be set free. And if he belongs to a people with whom you have a treaty, the blood-money is to be paid to his family and a believing slave is to be set free. He who cannot afford [to pay the blood-money], must fast two successive months as a penance from Allah, and Allah is all-knowing, all-wise.” [4:92] “Allah shall not take you to task for what is frivolous in your oaths; but He shall take you to task for what you pledge in earnest. The atonement for it is to feed ten needy persons with the average food you give to your families, or their clothing, or the freeing of a slave. He who cannot afford [any of these] shall fast for three days. That is the atonement for your oaths when you vow. But keep your oaths. Thus does Allah clarify His signs for you so that you may give thanks.”[5:89] “Those who repudiate their wives by ³ih¡r and then retract what they have said, shall set free a slave before they may touch each other. This you are advised [to carry out], and Allah is well aware of what you do.”[58:3] “And what will show you what is the uphill task? [It is] the freeing of a slave,”[90:13] For more information regarding the issue click on following link. http://www.islamportal.net/bookpart/islam-attacks-slavery-0

    Why is pork forbidden in Islam?

    A pig, even for the Europeans, who principally consume pork, is a symbol of dastardliness, and is an animal that is filthy and squalid. This animal, in sexual issues, is extraordinarily unconcerned, nonchalant and reckless, and apart from the effects of its meat upon the temperament - an issue that has been scientifically established - its effects, especially with respect to recklessness in sexual affairs, are distinctly observed. The prohibition of the consumption of pork had been proclaimed in the Sharia’h of Prophet Musa too, while in the Gospels the sinners have been likened to the pig, which, in the course of anecdotes, has been declared to be the personification of the Satan. It is a matter of great astonishment that some people, despite witnessing with their own eyes that on the one hand its nourishment is usually filth - at times consuming its own excrement - while on the other - as it is also plain for everyone that -the meat of this dirty animal contains two forms of a dangerous parasite by the name of trichina and one form of the parasite taenia, still insist on consuming its meat. A single trichina is capable of spawning 15,000 times within a period of one month and causes various diseases within man such as anaemia, vertigo, diarrhoeal fever, rheumatic pains, nervous stress, internal itching, accumulation of fat, exhaustion and extreme lassitude, breathing problems, difficulty in chewing and swallowing food etc. One kilogram of pork is likely to contain 400 million trichinae and perhaps this was the reason that, some years back, consumption of pork was prohibited in some parts of Russia. Truly, the religion, whose rulings acquire newer manifestations with the passage of time, is the religion of God - the religion of Islam.Some people assert that by present day means it is possible to eliminate all these parasites and make pork devoid of them, but even upon the supposition that use of sanitary equipments or cooking of meat at high temperatures completely eliminates all the parasites, nevertheless the harms associated with pork cannot be denied for according to the incontrovertible law referred to earlier, the meat of every animal bears the traits of that animal and, by means of the glands and the hormones secreted by them, influences the conduct of those, who consume it.Thus, consuming pork may transfer the attributes of sexual depravity and indifference towards the affairs of the womenfolk of the family - the most blatant traits of the male members of this species - into the person who consumes it.
