(15:61-79) Why does Lot offer his daughters for marriage?
Lot was living in a society (of homosexuals). The custom at the time was to honor mostly the guests! Angels went to Lot’s house as guests, disguised as young men. The people, seeing these handsome young men, lost control and went after them into Lot’s house. So, Lot, in order to avoid their transgressions towards his guests, he offers his daughters to them (the people of the town) instead!
The translation is not a “highway”! It is a way, way to see the ruins of those towns. In other words, the ruins of their towns are on the way clear for everyone to see.

They are wonders because they slept in this cave for 309 years because God Told them to go in the Cave in order to protect themselves from the unbelievers of the town at that time.

(18:97) Did ZQ and the people end up successful and what does it mean in correlation to verse
God Has made our planet parallel to jinn’s planet, one on top of the other. It is like a seashell, one side « matter » and the other « antimatter » , which the scientist Sakharov (Russian), has described as if you put half an apple on a mirror.
Ok, The jinns, at the era of the end of the world ( since Prophet Muhammad, we have entered this era), the jinns will succeed to break the wall separating us and the jinns. They penetrate our planet, as they lack water, their sustenance, and they will take ours, besides other injustices.
So through the computer, the broken wall will be mended as in verses 96 & 97 and in 98, as God Has Decreed, this is a Blessing of All’h to people of the earth, to get rid of jinns. And when His Word (Decree ) Comes , He Destroy it.
In (19:62) it mentions “morning” and “evening” when referring to the Gardens of Eternity in the Hereafter. Does that mean there are days in the Hereafter? Or is this, again, symbolic?

But honestly I am not sure of my answer…. ! But then, this shows there is an order for things up there!
(20:9) Qur’an + FurQan (9 letters) + 9 planets. How does this relate to the verse?
Verse number 9 is about “the Revelation to Moses and his brother”. This verse correlates with the number of letters of Qur’an-FurQan in Arabic being 9, as well as the number of Planets.
The reason for the story of Moses being Reminded in this Chapter (and more than any other Prophet in the Qur’an) is because of the similarity concerning the two Books. Previous to the Qur’an, Moses’ Book is the only one that was combined with the “FurQan/Discernment” (21:48).

“In short, this is not a game! If it were, I Would have done it by Myself, near myself without involving anyone… in fact when u want to play a game on internet, you do it by yourself and through an engine or a mean near yourself, no?”
(21:48)”in the past We Granted Moses & Aaron The FurQan and a Light and a Message for those who do right” . The FurQan is FurQan/ Discernement. The Message refers to the Torah
and the Light? Is the Light referring to inner enlightenment of their soul, Faith?

What does (22:15) mean?
Not a literal rope, but symbolically, people need to cut themselves off from the intermediaries that they use/pray (ex. hadith and sonna, idols, the Prophet, etc.).
They need to pray and worship Only All’h and then All’h, of course, Will Help His Believers. No longer will the things that annoyed them annoy them because God Is With them.
The meaning of this verse is: If anyone thinks that All’h Will not Help him in this world and the hereafter, let him cut off all ties with messengers/ idols and install a direct rope connected to God Alone and let him see whether he will be happy with what he chose.
In (23:6), why is it ok to have sex with “those whom their right hands possess”?
These are women that either their husbands or keepers in the family had died in fighting the believers; or the women who ran away from their family wanting to join the believers. As women at their time could not earn their living, And if they had children, God Had Permitted men’ believers to take them as their spouses. So in short you should have sex with your husband or husband to be. This to prevent sex with different people because it is a great danger, diseases, sida etc….
(“those whom their right hands possess” refers to the slaves of men in the past (ref. to Ch 4) (4:25) )
(23:17) Which seven tracts are being referred to? (seven heavens or seven levels before the heavens?)
This verse, the seven skies or heavens, is Called by The Lord, Seven Roads/ways. Because man has to accomplish the seven Ways to reach the highest degree of the Creatures, that are: pure faith without associating; accepting the Qur’an and all the Qur’an, as the Religion of God; righteousness; Salat; Zakat/charity; fasting; Hadj pilgrimage!

(24:2) What does “flog each of them with a hundred stripes mean”? And why 100?
“Flogging in public used to be the way of punishment; and 100, I suppose, presented the maximum number. This meant they deserve not only corporal punishment but public humiliation. Why so Strict? Because this was the base of all diseases… everything (or nearly) has started by mixed sexual relationships… today it is too late. But before if they had followed God’s Command they could have stopped today’s massive pollution in people’s society.”
(24:45) In a translation it says every animal is Created from water. In another translation (by Abdel Haleem) it says every animal is Created from a fluid, that is different from one another, making animals different?
In 24:45: the word is moving creature/ living creature. Us included of course. God Has Created every living thing from water.
(24:62) Why do the Believers need to ask for the leave of the Messenger? Also why would the Messenger need to ask Forgiveness for them consequently?
Out of respect.
Because the prayer of a Messenger is responded more quickly. The Messenger thinks of God the most and follows His Commandments the most, and God Has Chosen him for the Mission, so his prayers are more effective than others.
And as for “asking forgiveness”, Astarfar means taking the pollution away. By just breathing, you pollute, so we need to say AstarfarAll’h as much as we can to clean the pollution surrounding us and within us. The levels of pollution are so high, you don’
(25:6) What is the Mystery? Has it already been Revealed (math. coding?) and do we know or is it yet to be Unveiled?
The Mystery of everything in the Qur’an. Everything will be unveiled through Science by the Leave of All’h, as the Mathematical Code was Revealed in 1974 and as other Mysteries will be Revealed, (81:24)”And neither it is withholding any knowledge of the Unseen” meaning through The FurQan everything unknown will be Revealed, all the unanswered questions will be answered. Also this verse is in Chapt 25 “Al FurQan”/Discernment who will bring a better understanding of the verses of the Qur’an
(25:40) Which town was it that rained a shower of evil?

Gulf of Alaska. One sea is sweet and the other sea is salty. There is something in between them that makes the 2 waters not mix!

(193) “of which He Sent The Trustworthy Spirit,”
(194) “into your heart to become a Warner;”
(195) “in clear Arabic language.”
The Trustworthy Spirit is the Qur’an. Because God for Creating anything, Uses some of His Spirit. The Spirit of God is like the capital of anything. Trustworthy Spirit, is the Qur’an, that through mathematical coding has become Trustworthy and no one can defeat or harm it.
What does (27:10) mean?
God Tells Moses to throw his rod and when Moses did so, he saw his rod turn into a snake. Moses became fearful, so God Said not to fear as Messengers have no fear.
(27:41-42) What was the purpose of transforming her throne?
The purpose was to see whether or not she had the Knowledge/Truth and whether she had more meaning to her, but she was too caught up in the materialistic life. Because her vision deceived her and she couldn’t recognize her own throne, she realized that she was in the wrong and needed to submit to All’h.
(27:42) What does it mean “we were given the knowledge before her and we had surrendered”?
They had foretold the Queen of Sheba that something like this was going to happen, she had heard that Solomon had jinns at his service, so when she recognized her throne she surrendered.
(27:87) who are “those who are in the heavens”?
Everything in the world is alive and has a personality. So at the end, the stars, suns, skies, earth, etc. will all be present at the Resurrection Day!
(28:23) What does this verse mean that the women couldn’t water their flocks because of the shepherds?
Because the shepherds were men, stronger and abused their power to make the women wait.

(30:14) is about the day of the « hour »; this is the hour of annihilation of the World. (30:43) could be any day that one cannot change their attitude, Faith, deeds etc. (maybe at the death). (30:57) is about the day that one is standing for judgment after death.
(30:43) What is the “Day” mentioned in this verse referring to
This Day is after life, Day of Resurrection that no one can return from it. In fact God Says: stand up facing the stable/strong without weakness, Religion before the Day that you cannot go back (to take the right Way/Religion).
(32:29) Day of Inauguration is not right now because we are the dawn/beginning of the 2nd Inauguration of the Qur’an, is this referring to much later?
Yes it is! But not officially… We are living the beginning of the Day, the dawn, and day is when everything is clear out, when everything is lighted. I suppose it is when the “Festivity” of such Inauguration will start… for instance when the angels arrive to open the gates of garden for believers, Shab Ghadre/ Night of Power, and the recompenses for believers (which is another significance of Shab Ghadre/ Night of Power)…etc…
(33:6) What does it mean “Blood relations among each other have closer personal ties, in the Decree of All’h, than (the Brotherhood of) Believers and Muhajirs…”? What if blood relations someone has is with someone who isn’t a Believer?
The Prophet is above the believers(more respectful/ more important). And his wives have the position in relationship of their mothers; and (for inheriting) relatives of blood are more entitled than other believers and the Muhajirs/emigrants, unless some people are very close in friendship with them. (This is all about the time of Prophet and the people who emigrated with him because they wanted to become Muslim. So the decree about respecting the Prophet and his wives, and about what they leave behind as properties in the Law of God for these special people accompanying the Prophet.
(33:56) ) (Question from Correspondence: My Letter to Dr. A F) What is the “Takbeer” and “Salutation”?
As for the word « Takbeer » it is the verb of All’h o Akbar. In other words, when you say All’h o Akbar, you are doing Takbeer.

(33:73) What is the meaning of the repetition of “men and women”?

In (34:12), what is the significance of the Wind’s journey and the molten brass?
For Solomon, God Tamed the wind, one month in the morning and one month in the afternoon it was its journey. And He made flowing (liquid) copper for him; and some Jinns to be at his service, with His Permission. And who deviated from his command, was Punished by God severely.
The answer to your question on 34:12 &13: God Brought out for David a well of molten brass / copper to make overall of mail to cover them during the war. And Solomon had the wind at his command that was travelling a month in the morning and a month during
Why the wind? I suppose, for blowing the clouds to barren lands…
But if you do ask me why in the morning and late afternoon ? I cannot answer this question !
But there is something that I want all of you to know; that is, if something is in the Qur’an, it is for us to know. God Never Brings a Word above the knowledge of people! But His Word is discerned by science. So either is too early and science has not ye
The Miracle of this verse(due to internet information) is the time for the speed of the wind. So early in the morning and late at night, the wind is light.
So the time given in the verse, during morning and late afternoon.
The explanation for wind, air in motion, and all the benefits of the wind and its direction for a month from east, to west.. etc. Include the three suppositions of U.Ali, Edip Yuksel…; plus other beneficial things deriving from wind blowing. So the Miracle of the verse is in the time given in the verse.
In (34:13), were the jinns working for Solomon called the “sons of David”?
The children of David are the descendants of David And Solomon that God Told to work with all the things He Had Bestowed to their fathers (David, Solomon), and be grateful, not the jinns.
Some jinns also were at Solomon commands and they built things for him that men were incapable to do. All these for having facilities for living. So the descendants of David should be grateful to God.
(34:19) What is their complaint? What were they angry about?
The explanation of this is in Yusuf Ali, which is a historical explanation. The covetous people of Saba, were all the time asking God, never satisfied! They wanted longer distance to get more money from the visitors.
(34:44) It says in this verse that (the unbelievers) were not Given Books to study or haven’t been Sent Messengers as Warners, but doesn’t it say in the Qur’an that (along the lines –not verbatim) to every City/town, We Have Sent a Messenger and Clear Warner?
This verse says that no Messenger was sent “before thee” as Warners, meaning there was a Messenger but none before him. Also, in the previous verse it talks about the Clear Signs being rehearsed to them, but they denied those signs anyway.
(34:49) What does it mean “Falsehood neither creates anything new, nor restores anything”?
Falsehood will not start anything nor repeat anything, it has no power. When The Religion of All’h, and all the reality comes then falsehood will perish.

It is “Nushur”, which means to gather for the Resurrection. The meaning of the verse is for the Resurrection. It’s going to be the same as once the earth dies.

(36:26) It says that the man who was a Believer in God and Messenger was told to enter the Garden (after death) but isn’t it that the Garden isn’t open yet and will be at the Day of Resurrection?
It is not mentioned that the Garden is closed. And in some verses that concern the martyrs, they are there already. Concerning the verse above, it can be both ways, that is either now or after Resurrection.

It is the shape of the moon when it is at its beginning and last phases. It becomes a thin bow or semi circular branch like the branch of date.
What does (36:68) mean?
You see, nowadays they are talking about prolonging life through science, which relates to the meaning of « some of you that might live the end »… But the verse you mention means that those who live a long life and are old, We Reverse his creation. Meaning he or she will become childish again. It is the cycle/circle of life. One starts as a baby, then grows older to be an adult, then older to be elderly and like a baby again.

(38:24) Who are the Disputants and why did David end up asking Forgiveness of his Lord?
David was a Messenger known as the one who was repenting all the time! (Read a few verses before). Repenting, although it means asking forgiveness, it also means turning towards God. If u go to verse 19, the same word is used for the birds repenting to David. The disputants were the owners of (female) sheep who went to David asking him to judge between them. After judging, David suspected his judgment to be right, but he repented to God asking forgiveness in case he made the wrong judgment.
(38:34) What does this verse mean?
This was the trial of Solomon because he was Given extreme power (through the service of Jinns) and everything, but still everyone has to go through with the trial of God on earth. Go to some verses before, you will get it. Solomon loved horses. I think it was the head of one of his horses on his throne!
He realized he was too much attached to his horses, I suppose. Because in one of the verses, he neglects his prayer time because of them.
(38:44) Why is grass used?
I think he had made an oath towards probably his family (wife/ or other) to strike them. So God Tells him to take a bunch of branches of grass/ any other thin plants and hit, so he does not break his oath.
(38:52) Does that mean age is a concept in the Hereafter? How will we know the age of others?
As I said, everything said about high above, is symbolic. Over there there is no time running. And people are of the best spot of youth. If such a thing is Mentioned in the Qur’an; down here people, out of convenience, poverty and need, out of lust, etc. get married with years of age difference, old men with young girls, old women with young boys…. over there there is no such thing!!
(38:75) This verse is confirming that the angels were not involved nor present for the Creation of “man”, therefore why in some verses of The Qur’an does it say whom “We” have Created you? Does that mean God Created man with His Own Hand and the angels helped?
Angels are servants of God, performing the affairs of this world. Nothing in this world is done without the intercession of the angels and the reason for the “We” in the Book. The only thing that God Is Using “I”, is the stage between the time of man (insan) becoming human (Bashar).
In 38:71 (but in translations they have not respected such difference) here the word is Bashar/human. And in 38:75, there is no mention of man or human! But “….to one whom I Created with my hands”
Can you explain (39:42)?
God Has Explained in another verse, that sleeping is like dying; because when sleeping the soul comes out of the body, going up to God.
Now, in this verse, God Explains that those dying normally, God Takes their soul; and those who don’t, during their sleep, if their death is not decreed, God Sends back their soul, and if it is decreed God Keeps their soul. And in any case, in these, there are matters of reflection for people to meditate on every time to sleep….especially for those who do wrong and think they “never” die!
In (41:31), It mentions that the angels are our “helpers” in this life and in the Hereafter, so how would the angels help us in the Hereafter if they are in a different Garden?

Mecca and Ta’if
(43:36) Doesn’t every single person gets a jinn at birth no matter what?
The jinn satan appoints for everyone at birth! The one All’h Appoints is this one mentioned in (43:36).
In (43:59), why does it mention the “Children of Israel” while talking about Jesus being an example to them?
And Jesus was an example for children of Israel, because he was a Jew like them, but then they did not follow him.
And a very interesting point is the verse 61. Look up 43:61. In this verse it says that (Jesus) is the sign of the « hour » of the end of the World. 2280 years after the birth of Jesus, equivalent to 1710 lunar / after Muhammad. The difference between the two, is 570 years that was the time between the rise of the two Prophets. Also if you divide 2280 by 570 equals 4 and you divide 1710 by 570 equals 3, then 4 & 3 for Sura 43! Additionally, Prophet Muhammad was born in 570 AD.
–What made Jesus considered a Jew? didn’t he not categorize himself but just followed God’s Commandments?
Because he came from a family who were following Moses. Those followers of Moses were called Jews.
(43:86) what does it mean “only he who bears witness to the Truth, and they know (him).” ?

(53:7) is it the “Higher horizon” or “Horizon of the Manifest”? (53:8) I thought that God Does Not Descend (on earth because He Is So Powerful)? Did Prophet Muhammad go up to heaven to write the Qur’an? (53:9) What does this verse mean?
For the ascension of Muhammad, they took him to the highest heaven in the Garden of Éden. God Being in higher horizon, than the Garden, to make the Revelation of the Qur’an into Muhammad’s mind and subconscious, He descended as much as there were an arc (arc in sky, that comes after raining, usually) distance between God and Muhammad, and Revealed What was to be Revealed of the Qur’an. (He did not Descend to the earth….)
The reason why many translations use a lowercase “he” is because they think it is Angel Gabriel being mentioned. We know it is not Angel Gabriel mentioned because of verse 10 when the Qur’an says “His Servant”. Only God Has Servants.
(53:13) Is it “And now he saw Him at a second descent;” or “And he saw It at latter Descent,” ? “Him” or “It” ?
It comes to the same as there were two Descents. The first for Revealing the Qur’an, then the latter for Showing Himself on the tree to Muhammad.

He saw the It, the Light of God on the tree.

The Discipline of Nature is The Wisdom of All’h, as Nature is All’h.
(54:5) “Mature wisdom”?
This is The Wisdom of God.
(55:17) What are the two Easts and two Wests referred to?
The 2 East and 2 West refers to our world and the jinn world.
As taken from The FurQan Ch16: (7:17) The “rights & lefts”, being in plural, refers to the “two Easts & two Wests” of the two (parallel) planets (55:17) of Jinn & Man. The fact of Planet Earth being “egg shaped”(79:30) (and not round), due to Science, such cases after certain time, the planet will be reversed (east becomes west, west becomes east).
(55:33) what zones?

(55:52) what does it mean “two and two” according to Fruits?
Refer to (13:3).
I know that everything regarding the Hereafter is symbolic, but I have an interesting question. I just realized that in (55:72&74) it mentions companions restrained (as to their glances) Whom no man or JINN before them has touched… Does this mean that Jinn can touch human beings?
The verse to answer this question is 17:64 so yes, satan has gotten children as of Jinns and humans
(56:29) What tree is being mentioned/referred to? The Talh tree or banana trees?

A Messenger can be the Book, Science, human nature, etc. Though, the Book is always His Messenger (Science and Time were not always Messengers, but only for our era going towards the Direction of God).

It’s God & angel Gabriel
(67:5) why are the Lamps in Heaven needed to drive away the evil ones?

“Shin” means the curtain will go away on the sins, everyone will be asked to prostrate but the unbelievers won’t be able to.
Chapter 69 is the only Chapter that mentions the Thamud before the Ad twice (verses 4, 5 and 6), why?
If Thamud comes exceptionally before Ad in Surah 69, it is because of the Reality (as the name of the Surah) of The Sent forth of God, having been slain by people. Thamud was the Camel of God, and in S69, the Messenger of God (v. 44-46).
The relation between this Surah and the Thamud’s case is that, in both, the “Envoyé/Sent forth” of God was slain by people!
(70:4) Does the Day of Resurrection take 50,000 years?
This is for the Day of Resurrection, all the people whose spirit can go up with the angels, they go up to God in a day that takes 50,000 years of our time, these are the people who can go up because their spirit have got enough nourishment/energy to go up with angels as they have followed the Commandments of God on earth.
(70:9) How do mountains become like wool?
They say it might be the Black Hole, and this description can only happen if the Mountains get sucked in or aspirated by this Black Hole.
Why the repetition in (74:18-20)?
This is the highest degree of God’s unpleasant swearing at someone, let us say. Repetition here shows the seriousness of the unjust evaluation of the Qur’an by some people. In fact it goes like this: «Thus, be you killed/slain for yr evaluation; again be you killed/slain how you evaluated… »
In fact this case happened; as some experts published their «evaluation» on the Qur’an, some years ago, saying it was not a Divine Book and was done by humans! I wrote them a letter, which you can find in my Correspondence on the Site, using the verses of this Chapter…
(74:31) How is the number a trial for the unbelievers?
The # 19 is a trial for the unbelievers and it is for the people who believe to add to their belief/faith & for people who have been given the Book to believe and those who already believe to take away all sorts of doubts from others (Christians, Jews). Also important to make clear the disease of suspicion they have, these people will say: “What Does God Mean by this number, so what?” So All’h Leaves to stray whoever He Wants and Guides to the Right Way whom He Wants. Nobody knows the number of His Army and 19 is a Warning for people.
(74:38) What does it mean “in pledge for its deeds”?
As God Is Just with everyone and Takes into account all things, every soul will be Taken into account as to which deeds their hands put forth. Everyone will be given a Just Punishment according to their actions/deeds. The Believers and Righteous will have a pleasing and enjoyable Reward and will be in Gardens.
(74:40-41) These verses mention that in the Hereafter, the Companions of the Right Hand will be able to converse with the sinners, right? How? I know the Believers can look below them and see those down below, but how could they communicate with them?
People in the Garden can visit those in purgatory, but those in purgatory cannot visit those in the Garden. And I am sure there is a way of communication similar to FaceTime!
(75:2) does the “self-reproaching spirit” refer to the soul?
(75:17) how could it be Collected? And what is “it”?
Collect means to place each chapter of the Qur’an at the right place. The Qur’an was Revealed in Muhammad’s mind all at once in High Heaven. But when he came back down, it took him 23 years, and little by little the partitions would be Revealed to him with the help of angel Gabriel, making sure of its revelation and the placement of the partition or chapter. For example Chapter 96, the first Revelation, was to be put 19th place from the last Chapter of the Qur’an (114). God Has Collected/ Placed the Suras/Chapters at the right place with the help of angel Gabriel.
(75:26) what does this verse mean?
This verse is explaining Death, how after one dies, their soul will reach to the collar-bone meaning rise and elevate out of the body.
(76:2-3) who is “We” (in the process of Creation)?
Everywhere, “We” is God and Assisting angels!
In (21:90), “Us” means All’h and His Words. We call on God, and we call on The Qur’an (God’s Revelation). So I think it is correct to think Us is God and His Word, which is away from Him, being on earth.
But for the announcement to angels (2:34), I don’t think God Separates His Word from Himself. So I think of the intermediary of angels.
(76:5) What is kafur?
It is Camphor, it is cool and refreshing and is given as a soothing tonic in Eastern medicine.
(77:13) What Day is being referred to?
Day of separation good from bad; referring to good believing people from bad denying people!

These verses are about the Qur’an! (Which has been preserved by those who wrote it (before the invention of printing machines))
(85:4) Who are the makers of the pit? In other translations it connects this verse to a making of a trench?
85:4= « Okhdood » the word they have translated, « pit » or trench, was the name of a very cruel and tyrant king of Jews, who burnt the good Christians who worshipped God alone.
So this name became symbolic for those in history, who happen to burn people because of their faith to The God Creator. So « people of okhdood », is for those who either burn physically or morally those who worship God Alone, at any time.
(86:1) Does the title The Night-Visitant also refer to The FurQan?
Yes. The Night Visitant is a Star, and The FurQan is the Star that illuminates the world! Meaning it leads people to the Right Way, The Religion of All’h, by explaining and discerning the Verses of the Qur’an.
(86:4) What does this verse mean? Does the Night Visitant watch over every soul?
Ch 86 is about the star called: Taregh. I don’t know the name in English, but you can certainly find it because it is the star that was shining for the birth of Jesus, and very commonly known. The v. 4 (in the precedent verses God Swears by the piercing star) states that everyone has a protector over them; an angel is missioned to protect every soul.
(86:13) It says “The Word that distinguishes”
It is “The Word that separates”, as The FurQan is “separating” from The Qur’an, meaning coming out of The Qur’an. The FurQan is the Star that illuminates the world, by explaining the Verses of The Qur’an. It guides you and leads you to The Religion of All’h.
(88:17) Why do u think All’h Mentions the camel in Chp 88? Is it because that animal’s characteristics are a marvel in themselves? It can withstand extremely difficult conditions, and its hump allows a camel to survive an extremely long time up to two weeks without food if need be.
Because camel is the most precious and profitable animal for deserted places. And nevertheless, it shows the degree of their stubbornness against God’s Messenger and Sign, to kill such precious animal.
(89:2) what are the “Nights twice five”?
This is the last ten nights of Ramadan when some people confine themselves in mosques to be isolated for praying.
(89:3) What does this verse mean?
It references the numbers of the Qur’an and The Qur’an Mathematical Coding/ Miracle/Proof found by Rashad Khalifa. He combined all the even and odd verses of the Qur’an into one very long number encompassing the number of every verse in the Qur’an. The number representing the whole Qur’an is a multiple of 19 & consists of 12692 digits, which is also a multiple of 19.
(89:3) and (98:3) confirm each other because it is the Mathematical code of the Qur’an that is the basis of Strength of the Word of the Qur’an.
(91:13) Why do you think God Chooses to Talk about the she camel in Ch 91? Is it because she was referred as the She camel of All’h and was a test to the Thamud people and it is an animal living under the Sun in the toughest condition? But why mention it in this Chapter?
The Sun, or the light of intellect is necessary for understanding this ch.
Thus, 19, is the Miracle of God, and the 15 verses of this ch. is the sign of now, the 15th C. So the Mention of the Camel of Thamud is a Sign of Miracle of God.
And the common denominator between 19 & the Camel, is that they both are durable Miracles. That is, they lasted between the people, while all other Miracles have been instantaneous.
What is the correct translation of (92:13)?
And in fact it belongs to us the the last and the first (concerning life).
In fact it is the hereafter and the first. And if the hereafter comes before first, it is because for us, the hereafter is going to be the first, as we have lived and are finishing the first life.
(93:11) Is the “Bounty” in this verse referring to The Qur’an?
Yes, The Qur’an and rehearse it for yourself and tell it to people to do the same.
(96:3) Generous or Bountiful?

Day of Resurrection = Yawmad Griamat

The Horse galloping, the machines, cars…
(101:9) What does “the abyss is a mother to him” mean? Does that mean his stay in hell is only for a time as the child draws nourishment from his mother only for a time? This is the explanation Moulana Ali gives.
I do not know whether M.A’s discern is one of the possibilities. But for me the word mother, represents love, care, and especially, closeness! For me it means that fire will take care of him as a mother…
(103:1) Should Ch103 be titled “The Afternoon”? And should verse 1 be “By the afternoon,”?
