  • Is It Possible for the Sunnah to Abrogate a Verse of the Quran?

    As salaamu alaikum. I almost forgot to ask this question: I’ve had an argument with a friend and she said that the ayahs of the Qur’an cannot be abrogated by the Sunna of our Prophet (saws). I said that nikah mut’ah was forbidden by the Prophet (saws) in the Sunna and not in the Qur’an (i.e. there is no ayah in the Quran that says it is not.. More

  • Quran does not use stories from any past Books

    Hi! I would like to ask you about the story of Jesus creating clay birds, which is referred to in Quran. This story comes from an apocryphal Gospel called Infancy Gospel of Thomas, which all scholars and historians consider to be a forgery and unreliable, historically speaking. So why does the Quran use a story from such a document? .. More

  • Misinterpretation of verse 57:14

    Assalaamu alaykum. I was just wondering; there are loads of verses which encourage to question and not to be blind followers and such, but verse 57:14 makes it sound as if once you are Muslim or already were Muslim, you are not allowed to question anymore or it is wrong to question. Verse 57:14 makes it sound as if if you question, you have become a.. More

  • Bees were created before man

    Assalaamu alaykum. Verse 16:68 makes it sound as if humans were created before bees, but that is wrong; we know that bees existed way before humans.

And whoever enters it shall be safe.} I am unable to understand that Allaah said (what means): {And whoever enters it shall be safe.} whileI alwayshearthat many people (pilgrims) die during the Hajj.

  • Only righteous ones will have friends on Day of Judgment

    Assalaamu alaykum. There is a verse in the Quran that says that you will not have friends on the day of Judgment, but there is a verse that says that the people of piety will be brothers.

  • Physical beauty of women of Paradise in the Quran

    I was wondering, is the following true in regards to verses of Paradise being revealed in the Quran? Hence, it is proved that the concept of “Maidens of Paradise” was also known in the pre-Islamic Arabia, especially among the Christians. The Quran, as is its style under normal circumstances, used the same words for the deliverance of its message,.. More

  • About word 'Rabwah' in verse 2:265

    Assalaamu alaykum. In verse 2:265 of the Quran, Allaah specifically mentions a garden on a "Rabwah" to yield double than other gardens.

Is there.. More
