Holy Quran – Surah Maryam (Saint Mary)- English translation

Surah Maryam
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Kaf, Ha Ya, ‘Ain, Sad 1 (1) This is a narration of your Lord’s mercy to His servant Zakariyya, 
(2) When he called his Lord in a low voice. 
(3) He said, “My Lord, I am in a state that bones in my body have turned feeble, and the head has flared up grey with old age, and I never remained, My Lord, unanswered in my prayer to You. 
(4) I fear (my) kinsmen after me, 2 and my wife is barren, so bless me with an heir, from Your own side, 
(5) Who inherits me and inherits the house of Ya‘qub. And make him, My Lord, a favourite one.”  Read the rest of this entry

One of the facts that gave me great comfort when I was reading about Islam was the fact that Jesus is also known as the Messiah in the Quran. He was born from a virgin birth, from his mother Mary.
I found it intriguing that their was a chapter in the Qurran named for the mother of the Messiah, Mary. I remember reading this chapter and feeling like I was embarking on one of life’s great mysteries – this being the great mystery of the birth of Jesus but also the great mystery; why as a 36 year old educated human being diid I not know this fact? How could I classify myself as educated, and what system educated me to reach a state as an adult that I did not know that one of the great faiths on this planet shared the belief with me that Jesus was the Messiah and born of the virgin Mary! This in some ways was the greater of the mysteries!

How does the recording angels know about our intentions?

1175079_10151895315293755_1629150820_nAl-Bukaari and Muslim narrated from Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, relating from his Lord, may He be glorified and exalted: “Allah decreed good deeds and bad deeds, then He explained that. Whoever thinks of doing a good deed then does not do it, Allah will write it down as one complete good deed. If he thinks of doing a good deed and then does it, Allah [may He be glorified and exalted] will write it down between ten and seven hundred fold, or many more. If he thinks of doing a bad deed then he does not do it, Allah will write it down as one complete good deed, and if he thinks of it then does it, Allah will write it down as one bad deed.”  Read the rest of this entry

Two types of hidden matters

14159_633134040053859_1477757042_nThere are two types of hidden matters:
(1) that which is hidden from you and (2) that which you have hidden yourself from.

As that which is hidden from you is the Paradise, the Hell-Fire, the angels, the damsels of Paradise, the act of resurrection and that which comes after it. All of those things are hidden from you and you believe in them.

The second type of hidden matters is that which you have hidden yourself from O-servant! and that is the Ḥaḍra (presence) of Allāh-Taʿālā. The Ḥaḍra of Allāh-Taʿālā is not absent; it is omnipresent and closer to you than anything else. If you fail to find this Ḥaḍra, then you are the one who is absent, not the Ḥaḍra.~
