The Qur’aan – 2

Qur’aanic Verse 20.8:

20.8

Transliteration:

8. Allahu la ilaha illa huwa lahu al-asmao alhusna

Translation:

8. Allah – there is no god but He; His are the very best attributes.2 

Study Note:

2. Allah Almighty explains to us, in the foregoing Verses of this Chapter, the unique importance of the Qur’aan. It is not any ordinary book authored by any humans. It is a gift to mankind from none other than the Creator of all things, Himself! And, yet, mankind is, by and large, utterly blind to the grand magnificence of the divine Book. It was this Book that had converted a nondescript Arab people into the most potent force on earth. But, once they lost sight of its importance, the same Arab people are now being mercilessly humiliated at the hands of the tiny nation of Israel.

============================================

The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil IV, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II & Manzil III of the series are already published.

  1. This verse and 7:180 tells us all beautiful names belongs to Allah.However, the 99 names as seen in hadith books, some cannot be considered “beautiful.”, such as Al Dar ( the one who harms). Quran tells us
    (42:30) Anything bad that happens to you is a consequence of your own deeds, and He overlooks many (of your sins).
    And some criticize the usage of God for Allah, eventhough the Arabic word Allah is the contraction of the article Al(the) and Elah (god).

    • Well said. These are attributes, unlike how we are thought. You can also call him by his attributes.

  2. please send me all material you publish time to time.
