Selected Verses from the Quran - Reference Page

Qur'ān, the Divine Scripture, that contains commandments from Allah for the guidance of mankind. There is no doubt its divinity for the claim has been made by none other than Allah right in the opening verses of the Qur'ān:

 ذٰ لِكَ الۡڪِتٰبُ لَا رَيۡبَ ۛۚ   ۖ فِيۡهِ ۛۚ هُدًى لِّلۡمُتَّقِيۡنَۙ‏  الَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِالۡغَيۡبِ وَ يُقِيۡمُوۡنَ الصَّلٰوةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقۡنٰهُمۡ يُنۡفِقُوۡنَۙ‏ 
"This is the Book of Allah, there is no doubt in it; it is a guidance for the pious, for those who believe in the existence of that which is beyond the reach of perception,4 who establish Prayer and spend out of what We have provided them". (Surah 2. Al-Baqarah, Verse 2)
Since revelation of Qur'ān on to last of the Prophets of Allah, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and institution of the religion of Islam, more and more non Muslims are being attracted to Islam and over 1.5 billion Muslims constitute the second largest (and ever expanding) religions other than Christianity.

Although Qur'ān can be read and understood by merely reading its translation from its original language of Arabic, one needs to read its exegesis / tafseer / explanation of each verse so that one is clear about the reference to the context under which a particular verse (called Ayat in Arabic) was revealed for better comprehension and understanding. For sometimes mere translation of a verse may lead the reader astray, and which in fact is a reality wherein a lot of non Muslims misquoting the verses which apparently may give a meaning which is not intended since it is being read out of the context.

While each word of the Qur'ān is a Divine Word containing Divine Wisdom, there are verses in the Qur'an which contain special references and commandments of Allah for guidance of mankind to the eternal Truth and to become a blessed human being. Although, We are already presenting the exegesis / tafseer of each surah / chapter of the Qur'ān which is based on the explanation of Quranic verses by some of the best minds and scholars of Islam from around the world, the purpose of this special effort is to share some of the meaningful purposed wholesome verses and their detailed translation / meaning which is other wise difficult to be dug out from the exegesis of the surahs / chapters from the Qur'ān. 

Herein under is the list of selected verses, to which more verses will keep on adding, along with the link to take the reader to their detailed explanation / exegesis:

Reading the Al Qur'an should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. May Allah (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and help us to act upon the commandments of Allah contained therein. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others life miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

An effort has been made to gather selected verses from Qur'an that have a direct bearing on our day to day life and how to strengthen our faith in Allah. These are based on explanation / exegesis of the verses from Qur'an from authentic sources and then present a least possible condensed explanation of the surah. In that:
  • The plain translation has been taken from the Qur'ān officially published by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 
  • The exegesis of the chapters of the Holy Quran is mainly based on the "Tafhim al-Qur'ān - The Meaning of the Qur'ān" by one of the most enlightened scholars of the Muslim World Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi. 
In order to augment and add more explanation as already provided, additional input has been interjected from following sources: 
  • Tafsir Ibn Khatir
  • Al-Qur'ān, Muhammad Asad Translation
  • Al-Qur'ān, Yusuf Ali Translation
  • Javed Ahmad Ghamidi / Al Mawrid
  • Qur'an Wiki
  • Verse by Verse Qur'an Study Circle
In addition the references of  other sources which have been explored have also been given in each page. Those desirous of detailed explanations and tafsir (exegesis), may refer to these sites.
