Welcome to Islamhelpline

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

Jazak Allah Kheir (May Allah reward you appropriately) for asking us a question on this forum. All the questions received on this forum are put in a queue, and we shall endeavour to answer your question as soon as possible. We do appreciate your patience and your understanding.

We assure you, and Allah is our witness, that our answers will be based on the guidance from only two sources of knowledge.

1. The Glorious Quran.
2. The authentic traditions of the Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws).

We welcome any type of questions on this forum, be it theological, be it practical, or personal. Islam is a religion and deen based on logic, and Alhamdolillah, Islam has an answer for everything. Allah sent us the manual for our guidance in the form of the Holy Quran, but unfortunately, most of us have never read or understood the Holy Quran.

Allah says in Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah aayat 185:

"Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of CLEAR teachings which show the right way and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood."

Allah Himself states in the Holy Quran, that this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of Clear Teachings which show us the Right Way. But unfortunately, most mu'mineens do not consult the Holy Quran, simply because they do not understand it. The Holy Quran is a Book of Guidance from our Lord and Creator, and He in His Mercy, has made the Message very simple for us to understand. 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 44 Surah Dukhan verse 58:

We have made this Book easy in your own tongue so that they may ponder and take good counsel.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verses 1-3:

Haa Meem. By this lucid (clear or open) Book. We have made it an Arabic Quran, so that you may understand it.

Some unscrupulous people say that the Quran is impossible to understand. They say that each aayah of the Quran has 10 meanings each! They say that we have to bow down in submission to them if we want to understand the Quran! They say that Allah has blessed only them and their families to understand the meaning of the Quran, and fools like us just cannot comprehend its message! They say that you have to believe and love and revere a personality named so and so, if you really want to understand the guidance of the Holy Quran! This is an absolute lie, and the only thing they are successful in doing is taking us away from the simple guidance of the Holy Quran. Once the guidance and understanding of the Glorious Quran is kept away from us, they guide us to invoke human beings, dead in their graves, and/or alive! They claim to guide us, but if one confirms their teachings with the guidance of the Holy Quran, he will realize that they are in fact mis-guiding us from the Straight Path. They conceal the clear guidance of the Quran from us for a paltry worldly sum, but little do they realize, that Allah is keeping a watch over them and their deeds. 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Al-Baqarah verse 174:

Indeed those, who conceal the commands that Allah has sent down in His Book and barter them away for paltry worldly gains, fill their bellies with fire. Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He regard them as pure and there is a painful torment for them!

We will try our best, Insha Allah, to answer all your questions, giving you evidence and proof from the Holy Quran. Most of the questions regarding faith, 'aqeedah', worship, belief, hell fire, paradise, etc. will be answered from the Holy Quran. In matters of manners and personal issues, if the Quran is silent on the issue, we will refer to the authentic narrations of the Messenger of Allah (saws) for the answers. Between these two sources of knowledge, we assure you, that there is an answer for anything in this world.

We encourage our mu'mineen brothers and sisters to take our answers and consult any scholar of their choice for a second or third opinion. If the scholars are indeed referring to the Holy Quran for their guidance, they should all come to the same conclusion. The Holy Quran is consistent in its guidance, and perfectly in context. There are absolutely no discrepancies or contradictions in the Holy Quran. Thus if any scholar has another opinion, we would request you to forward their opinion to us, giving us the reference of their source. The only reason the conclusion will differ is because one of the scholars is using another book or another personality, instead of the Holy Quran. The truth from the Holy Quran will stand out clear from the error of any other guidance, Insha Allah.

We ask for no thanks and no reward from you for this service. Our reward is with Allah Subhanah. Our only mission and objective is to invite our mu'mineen brothers and sisters to read and understand the simple message of our Lord and Creator, the Al Quran. Once you have done that, we assure you, that nobody will ever be able to misguide you in Islam.

May Allah always keep you and your families in His Infinite Protection and Mercy. May Allah guide you and us all to the Siraat al Mustaqeem (Straight Path of Islam).
