There is only one blessed night mentioned in the Qur’an, which is Laila tul Qadr. The Qur’an was sent down in this night and it is one of the nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan. However, those who believe that 15th Sha’ban is blessed interpret the verses in Surah Ad-Dukhan to refer to this night rather than the night of Qadr....


The Quran has an entire chapter called Namal (ant), named after one of God’s tiny creations. It contains the enchanting story of Prophet King Solomon and his encounter with the ant colony.

Prominent Quranic scholars have pointed out that the interpretation of Surah Nisa’s Ayat 34 has been translated and interpreted to mean ‘to beat’ only because the task of legal interpretation, or Fiqh, has for too long been dominated by men. When all judges and legal scholars are male, it is no surprise that their decrees favour men.....

پانچ نوجوانوں کی ہندی زبان میں دھمکی آمیز گفتگو اس بات کی طرف اشارہ ہے کہ یہ ویڈیو خصوصی طور پر ہندوستان ہی کے لئے ہے ۔اس ویڈیو میں جن نوجوانوں کو دکھایا گیا ہے وہ مہاراشٹر کے کلیان اور یو پی کے اعظم گڑھ کے ہیں۔ اس ویڈیومیں پانچ حوالوں کا خصوصی ذکر ہے : بابری مسجد ، گجرات فسادات، مظفر نگر ، کشمیر اور بٹلہ ہاؤس انکاؤنٹر ۔اس سے صاف ظاہر ہے کہ مسلمانوں کو جذباتی بنا کر گمراہ کرنے کی کوشش کی گئی ہے۔

Peoples’ interpretation of religion can change, but I don’t believe the role of religion is changeable.
