    God says in the Quran “I have not created the jinn and the men except that they should serve Me” (Quran, 51:57). How do we know how to serve Him? The Quran shows us the way to God. It is his miracles that establishes and strengthens our faith in Him. It assures us that this message is from god. It shows us what we need to do, and how we need to be so that we are pleasing to Him. Muslims main goal is to please Allah. Because when he is pleased with us that is when he is near to us. For Muslims that is all that there is to life. The Prophet (saw) has said in a hadith recorded by Muslim “The Quran is either an argument for you or against you”. On the Day of Judgment the Quran will be brought forward. It will stand in support of those who follow it and act upon it. And it will witness against those who abandoned it and those who opposed it (As-Saranbi). God revealed the Quran in Arabic. The Arabic language is very complex; one word can hold several meanings.

What will be written in this text is not Quran but an effort to express some of its meanings focusing on surah Ale-Imran. Surah Ale-Imran was revealed in Al-Madinah a city in modern day Saudi Arabia. It is the 3rd surah (chapter) in the Holy Quran with 200 verses. This Surah consists of four discourses. The first discourse from verse 1-32…

    Two religions, Islam and Christianity, were both founded by Abraham and his sons. Even with the same family founding them they have very diverse similarities and differences. Within both passages found in the Koran, Sura 93, and the Bible, Psalms 23, similar points are expressed. Although they describe a similar praise to their God, dictions and phrases from Sura 93 expressed through rhetorical questions change the passage into something with an accusable tone. Each passage shows a similar…

    This is a Medinan sura, which was revealed to Muhammad after the Hijra to Medina in 622 A.D. Medinan suras concentrate on messages on community building. Therefore, Sura 3 focuses on the contact that Muslims have with Jews and Christians, conveying the message that the “central tenet of faith is devotion to God” (Haleem, 34). One of the conflicts among the three religions was about the nature of Jesus, and in order to resolve this, Muhammad tried to unite the three faiths on the common idea that…

The story I chose to read for this week’s assignment is, Letter to Sura, by…
