Edited by AT38


This Surah has the characteristics of the Makkan surat
-this is because it starts with the three letters (Alif, Alam, Mim)
-all surahs with these are revealed in Makkah
-with the exception of Baqara and Ale Imraan
-the Sunnah of Allah (SWT) is the invite to Tawhid in Darul Harb
-and to invite to Sharia in Darul Islam
-don’t call for Sharia in the UK and USA these people are not ready for Sharia
-you are throwing silver and gold to the swine
-you should go to a Muslim country to do that, not in Darul Harb


Alif ­Lam ­Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings.] (As-Sajdah 32:1)

These letters are miracles of the holy Quran and only Allah SWT knows their meanings
-Ibn Kathir didn’t try to explain their meanings
-he was from ahlu sunnah wal jamaa’ and not from the mu’rtazilite
-the prophet SAW used to recite this surah in Fajr

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (SAW) used to recite the following in the Fajr prayer of Friday, "Alif, Lam, Mim, Tanzil" (Surat as-Sajda #32) and "Hal-ata-ala-l-Insani" (i.e. Surah-Ad-Dahr #76). [al-Bukhari (891) and Muslim (880)]
Jabir said, "The Prophet would never sleep until he recited: Alif Lam Mim. The revelation of..., [Surah As-Sajdah (32)], and Blessed be He in Whose Hand is the dominion... [Surah Al-Mulk (67)]." [Musnad Ahmad (3/340) No. 14700]
Surah sajda takes its name from Ayah 15, the word Sajda was made mention of there.


The revelation of the Book (this Qur'an) is from the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists) in which there is not doubt! (As-Sajdah 32:2)

The Author of Quran is Allah (swt),
-He is not the author of confusion, mistakes, contradictions
-you are not allowed to believe that the Qur’an has mistakes
-if you read the Qur’an and see that two verses seems contradictory
-then you need to approach a scholar to reconcile them for you
-the man who has doubts about his faith, doubts paradise and hellfire,
-is worse than the man who drinks alcohol, because the alcoholic is still a Muslim
-but the man who has doubts in his heart he is not a muslim

Alif-Lam-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (Al-Baqarah 2:1)

This is the Book (the Qur'an), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqun [the pious and righteous persons who fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)]. (Al-Baqarah 2:2)


Or say they: "He (Muhammad SAW) has fabricated it?" Nay, it is the truth from your Lord, that you may warn a people to whom no warner has come before you (O Muhammad SAW), in order that they may be guided. (As-Sajdah 32:3)

The infidels lie on the rasul (saw) because he is the torchbearer of the trith
-they claimed that Muhammad SAW wrote the Quran himself
-but how could he fabricate the Quran, if he was unlettered?

 ...So believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), the Prophet who can neither read nor write (i.e. Muhammad SAW) who believes in Allah and His Words [(this Qur'an), the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and also Allah's Word: "Be!" - and he was, i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary),], and follow him so that you may be guided." (Al-A'raf 7:158)

He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together. (Ar-Rahman 55:19)
Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. (Ar-Rahman 55:20)
Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? (Ar-Rahman 55:21)

In the ocean there is salty water and fresh water,
-but they cannot mix because there is a barrier between the two
-how can a man who knows nothing about science bring a book
-full of scientific facts

Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, (Al-'Alaq 96:15)
A lying, sinful forelock! (Al-'Alaq 96:16)

-the brain surgeons discovered recently that when a person wants to concoct a lie,
-the section used is the front lobe of the brain
-this is another scientific fact which is mentioned in the holy Quran

These accusations were not done only by only the pagan arabs
-the kufaar today are doing the same
-so in order to refute them, you need to bring these scientific facts
-to prove to them that a man who was unlettered can’t bring these facts

He has created the heavens without any pillars, that you see and has set on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with you. And He has scattered therein moving (living) creatures of all kinds. And We send down water (rain) from the sky, and We cause (plants) of every goodly kind to grow therein. (Luqman 31:10)

Surah 23:12-14 caused Dr Keith Moore to embrace Islam
-he is the leading doctor for embryology in Toronto University

And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). (Al-Mu'minun 23:12)

Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge) (and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman). (Al-Mu'minun 23:13)

Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators. (Al-Mu'minun 23:14)

-the body of Pharaoh is another miracle of the Qur’an
-Allah (swt) promised to preserve the body
-his body was intact when they discovered it 3000 years later

Only brain dead people make these claims that Muhammad (saw) wrote the Qur’an
-we are going debate, refute and disgrace anyone who does do
-and we will prove that you have an IQ of a mosquito

And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) with his hosts followed them in oppression and enmity, till when drowning overtook him, he said: "I believe that La ilaha illa (Huwa) : (none has the right to be worshipped but) He," in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am one of the Muslims (those who submit to Allah's Will)." (Yunus 10:90)

Now (you believe) while you refused to believe before and you were one of the Mufsidun (evil-doers, corrupts, etc.). (Yunus 10:91)

So this day We shall deliver your (dead) body (out from the sea) that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs , revelations, etc.). (Yunus 10:92)

For you to accuse Muhammad SAW of writing the Quran himself
-does not stand up to scrutiny

Neither did you (O Muhammad SAW) read any book before it (this Qur'an), nor did you write any book (whatsoever) with your right hand. In that case, indeed, the followers of falsehood might have doubted. (Al-'Ankabut 29:48)

All the prophets (as) were right handed and so was Muhammad (saw)

It was reported that the Prophet (SAW) became angry when he saw that ‘Umar had a page with something from the Torah written on it, and he (SAW) said: “Are you in doubt, O son of al-Khattab? Have I not brought you something shining and pure? If my brother Musa were alive, he would have no choice but to follow me.” [Musnad Ahmad (3/387) No. 15195 and Sunan al-Darime (1/126) No. 435]
-to doubt one word in the Qur’an is sufficient to cause you to leave the fold of Islam
-you need not doubt the whole Qur’an or just a verse

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (Al-Hijr 15:9)

Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allah). (Fussilat 41:42)

The Shia believe the present day Quran is corrupt
-they are accusing Allah SWT of breaking His promise to protect the Quran
-this is why they are kufaar
-so if you see the Islamic State (IS) beheading them
-so should not bat an eyelid
-they are kufaar (apostate) and not Jews or Christians
-it is not the sunnah to take jizya from apostates and Shiites
-they are killed in the Islamic state
SHIA HUJJAH: The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

Allah it is He Who has created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them in six Days. Then He Istawa (rose over) the Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). You (mankind) have none, besides Him, as a Wali (protector or helper etc.) or an intercessor. Will you not then remember (or be admonished)? (As-Sajdah 32:4)

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (Ta-Ha 20:5)
Abdullah ibn Amr (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “Those who are merciful will be given mercy by the Most Merciful. Be merciful to those on the earth and the One above the heavens will have mercy on you.” [Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 40, Hadith #4941]
...Zainab used to boast before the wives of the Prophet and used to say, "You were given in marriage by your families, while I was married (to the Prophet) by Allah from over seven Heavens." And Thabit recited, "The Verse: 'But (O Muhammad) you did hide in your heart that which Allah was about to make manifest, you did fear the people,' (33.37) was revealed in connection with Zainab and Zaid bin Haritha." [Sahih Bukhari (9/125) No. 7421]
 Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,” and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked , ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved.” (‘Sharh Usul I'tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)
 Ja'far Ibn Abdullah narrated: We were with Malik Ibn Anas when a man came to him and said: “O Abu Abdullah (Allah said) 'Ar-Rahman upon the Throne Istawa' (20:5), how was His Istiwa? Imam Malik inclined his head and was silent until the sweat of fever covered his brow, then he looked up and said: "Istiwa is not unknown, the Kayf (how) is uncomprehendable, believing in it is wajib (obligatory), and asking about it is bid'ah (innovation), and I do not think that you are anything but an innovator." Then he ordered that the man be expelled. [Abu-Naeem Al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa Tabaqat Al-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]
Imam Shafi'i (rh) said: This is the evidence that Allah the Most High is above the Arsh, without specificity known to us, and He is away from His creation. There is none comparable to His and He is the All-Hearing the All-Seeing. [Tafseer al-Imam ash-Shafi'i (3/1063)]
Yusuf bin Musa al-Qattan, the Shaikh of Abu Bakr al-Khallal, said: It was said to Abu Abdullah (Ahmad bin Hanbal): "Allah is above the seventh heaven, over His Throne, separate and distinct (ba'in) from His creation, and His Power and Knowledge are in every place?" He said: Yes, He is over His Throne, and nothing escapes His Knowledge. [related by Adh-Dhahabi in Mukhtasar al-Uluww (p.189)] This al-Qattan is thiqah (trustworthy) from the Shaikhs of al-Bukhari. He died in 253H, al-Khallal heard from him, and the isnaad is sahih.

Allah (swt) has stated in many places in the Qur’an that He is on the Arsh
-you need not be offended if you are asked where the Arsh is
-it is above the heavens
-to deny knowing where the Arsh is, is also sufficient to take one out of Islam
-to say Allah SWT is "in heaven" is from Christianity.
-He does not dwell in His own creation
-the only accurate opinion is that He is above the heavens
-the Sufis will question "where was Allah SWT before He created His Arsh"
-the answer to that is that Allahu Alam (Allah Knows)
-when you bring them the hadith about the slave girl,
-they try to refute it by saying "when she pointed her finger,
-she meant that Allah SWT is not one of the idols inside the Ka'ba"

It is narrated that the companion Mu'awiyah ibn al-Hakam, (RA) slapped his servant girl who used to tend his sheep, and as a result went to the Prophet (SAWS) and asked what should be done as an atonement for having slapped her. The Prophet replied, "Bring her to me" so Mu'awiyah brought her to the Prophet. The Prophet then asked her, "Where is Allah?" and she replied "Above the Sky" then the Prophet asked her, "Who am I?" and she replied, "You are Allah’s Messenger", so the Prophet said, "Free her, for verily she is a true believer." [Sahih Muslim (1/381) No. 537]


He arranges (every) affair from the heavens to the earth, then it (affair) will go up to Him, in one Day, the space whereof is a thousand years of your reckoning (i.e. reckoning of our present world's time). (As-Sajdah 32:5)

When the rasul (saw) spoke to Allah (swt) on the night of Isra wal Miraj,
-he (saw) went to Sidratul Muntaha above the 7 heavens
-if Allah wasn’t above the heavens
-why should Jibril (as) take him there?
-He also said that He arranges everything and the affairs go up to Him
-he was given 50 salah and was reduced to 5 daily salah

Anas bin Malik narrated that fifty prayers, were made obligatory on the Prophet on the night of mi'raj. Then they were reduced till five remained. Then, a voice called, "O Muhammad our word is never changed. For you, indeed, with these five will accrue (reward of) fifty." [Sunan Tirmidhi (1/417) No. 213, Musnad Ahmad (3/161) No. 12662, al-Bukhari (3207) and Muslim (162)]
When you see in the Qur’an one place saying the distance to the heavens
-is a 1000 years and another saying 3000 years
-the kufaar may say that it is a contradiction but it is not
-the distance from the earth to the 1st heaven is not the same
-as the distance from the earth to 3rd or 4th heaven
-this is the reconciliation between the two
-you should always approach the scholars to help you
-reconcile anything in the Quran that seem contradictory


That is He, the All­Knower of the unseen and the seen, the All­Mighty, the Most Merciful. (As-Sajdah 32:6)

When you have might and are able to take revenge,
-but yet still you show mercy, it's highly appreciated
-because of this Allah SWT mentioned might and mercy in the same Ayah
-He is Merciful to His servants even when He can punish them
-when the rasul (saw) entered Makkah, he had the ability to take revenge against them
-but he freed them all and forgave them
-they all embraced Islam after that

"O Quraish, what do you think I will do to you?" They said, “You are a brother, the son of a noble brother.” He said: "Go your way, for you are free.” [al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (9/199) No. 18276, Fath ul-Bari Ibn Hajar (8/18) No. 4289, Seerah Ibn Hisham (2/412), al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah Ibn Kathir (3/570)]


Who made everything He has created good, and He began the creation of man from clay. (As-Sajdah 32:7)

When Allah said that He has created good
-it means that whatsoever He has created in due proportion is free of farfetchedness
-He asked to look at His creation carefully to see if you will find any fault in them
-He gave this challenge to every kafir scientist

Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?" (Al-Mulk 67:3)
Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out. (Al-Mulk 67:4)

we believe in creationism, intelligent design
-not Darwinism, that everything came by lucky/chance
-you need not look far to see wonderfulness of His creation
-just look at yourself in the mirror and look for any fault in your creation
-the organ used to smell is the nose
-it will be disastrous if you eat food that has gone bad
-this will give you food poisoning which may be deadly
-your nose is placed above your moth so that you will detect if it is spoiled

Now we ask the question:
Is plastic surgery halal?
The answer is yes, if you were born with some deformity
-or that you had a car accident and need fix features in your body
-affected by the accident
-you are not changing Allah’s creation but you are perfecting it
Narrated 'Urfajah bin As'ad: "My nose was severed on the Day of Al-Kulab during Jahiliyyah. So I got a nose of silver which caused an infection for me, so the Messenger of Allah (SAW) ordered me to get a nose made of gold." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/240) No. 1770, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/92) No. 4232, Sunan al-Nasa'i (8/16) No. 5161, Musnad Ahmad (5/23) No. 20285]
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (rh) was asked: What is the ruling on cosmetic surgery that is done by women? He replied: "If it is done to remove a fault, there is nothing wrong with it so long as it does not cause any harm, because ‘Arfajah (RA) wore a nose made of gold when his nose was cut off. One example is tightening or lifting drooping breasts." [Thamaraat al-Tadween (p. 133)]
Who made everything He has created good, and He began the creation of man from clay. (As-Sajdah 32:7)

It means there is absolutely no discrepancy in the creations of Allah SWT
-there is no inconsistencies, no far-fetchedness, no incongruity
-Man is Allah’s masterpiece

By the fig and the olive (At-Tin 95:1) Sahih International
And [by] Mount Sinai (At-Tin 95:2) Sahih International
And by this city of security (Makkah), (At-Tin 95:3)
We have certainly created man in the best of stature; (At-Tin 95:4) Sahih International

It’s not valid to do, Qiyas compare a monkey to man
-the monkey is considered handsome in his community
-but if you compare it with man, you are oppressing it
-Ahmad ibn Hanbal said that most mistakes are made with wrong Qiyas
-to say "that monkey is ugly" is not valid
-you are comparing the monkey to man and that comparison is wrong
-because man is the masterpiece


Allah SWT used Hama, (black mud altered)
-if Allah used Hama then how come we have different color skin in the world
-this is because the angel took from different parts of the earth and different colors
-some people are mild tempered or harsh hearted
-some are patient/impatient because of how they are created
-the predominant soil in you determines your nature

Abu Musa al-Ash’ari (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Indeed, Allah created Adam (AS) from a fistful (of dust) which he took from all over the earth. Thus, there are among them (children of Adam), the red (coloured), the white, the black and those between these (colours) and the mild and the rugged, and the evil and the good.” [Tirmidhi 2965, Ahmed 19599, Abu Dawud 4693]
Verily We created man of potter's clay of black mud altered,[Pickthall]
(Al-Hijr 15:26)

And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered black mud. (Al-Hijr 15:26) Sahih International


Then He made his offspringg from semen of worthless water (male and female sexual discharge). (As-Sajdah 32:8)

The only man created from clay was Adam PBUH
-the rest were created from semen
-the only man that Allah SWT created with His two hands was Adam, and his wife Eve
-the rest of us were created through intercourse
 Mujahid narrated Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) said: “Allah created four things with His Hand; 1. The Throne 2. The Pen 3. Aadam and 4. The paradise of ‘Adn. He then said to the rest of the creation ‘Kun’ [Be] and it was.” [Adh Dhahabi in ‘Mukhtasar al-‘Uluw’ (p105), Abu al-Shaikh al-Asbahani in 'al-‘Adhuma' (5/1555), Tafsir al-Tabari (21/239), ‘The chain is authentic according to the conditions of Muslim.’]
Jesus PBUH was created without intercourse
-but Adam was closer to Allah SWT than Jesus,
-because he did not have a mother or father, where as Jesus had a mother
 The things created without intercourse:

1.Adam (as)
3.The She camel of Allah
4.The Lamb of Ismael
5. Jesus (as)

Then He made his posterity out of the extract of a liquid disdained.(As-Sajdah 32:8)
 Sahih international


 The Ulama agree that sperm is pure
-sperm is pure weather it is wet or dry
-the rasul (saw) used to pray in the cloths with sperm stains on it
-the female discharge is also pure

Narrated by Aisha When I saw (dried) semen on the garment of the Messenger of Allah (saws), I simply scraped it off, and he (saws) offered prayer while wearing those garments.Sahih Muslim Hadith 566   


Then He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him the soul (created by Allah for that person), and He gave you hearing (ears), sight (eyes) and hearts. Little is the thanks you give! (As-Sajdah 32:9)

Allah (swt) is the One and Only Creator
-the soul you need to live can only be given to you by Him
-He is the only One who can create it
-so man makes but Allah creates

The Hearing, Eye sight, the Heart
-the eye sight is so important that you cannot thank Allah SWT enough for one eye
-if you become blind because of an accident,
-and then you have sabr, your destiny is paradise
-you can’t thank Allah enough for His blessings
-and Allah says man is ungrateful

Abu Hurayrah (RA) traced this hadith to the Prophet (SAW) that Allah, the Majestic and Glorious, said, “When I take away the eye-sight of a slave and he shows patience and looks forward to reward then I shall not be pleased for him with anything less than Paradise.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/603) 2401, Musnad Ahmad (2/265) No. 7587]
And He gave you from all you asked of Him. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful. (Ibrahim 14:34)
By the racers, panting, (Al-’Adiyat 100:1)
And the producers of sparks [when] striking (Al-’Adiyat 100:2)
And the chargers at dawn, (Al-’Adiyat 100:3)
Stirring up thereby [clouds of] dust, (Al-’Adiyat 100:4)
Arriving thereby in the center collectively, (Al-’Adiyat 100:5)
Indeed mankind, to his Lord, is ungrateful. (Al-’Adiyat 100:6)
And indeed, he is to that a witness. (Al-’Adiyat 100:7)  
And indeed he is, in love of wealth, intense. (Al-’Adiyat 100:8)

If you are not grateful to the Creator, you can’t be grateful to the creations
-this is why kuffaar use people and then dump them

And they say, "When we are lost within the earth, will we indeed be [recreated] in a new creation?" Rather, they are, in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord, disbelievers. (As-Sajdah 32:10)
The kufaar deny the resurrection
-because if there is such a thing then they are finished
-they dabble in every haram under the heavens
-so they give comfort to themselves through false hope
-they are human devils and even cheat on wives with men
They are [presently] saying, "Will we indeed be returned to [our] former state [of life]? (An-Nazi’at 79:10)
Even if we should be decayed bones? (An-Nazi’at 79:11)
They say, "That, then, would be a losing return." (An-Nazi’at 79:12)
Sahih International


Say, "The angel of death will take you who has been entrusted with you. Then to your Lord you will be returned." (As-Sajdah 32:11)

Allah is saying that wherever you may be
-death will overtake you
-the best person to walk earth was Muhammad (saw) yet he died

"Wheresoever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high!" And if some good reaches them, they say, "This is from Allah," but if some evil befalls them, they say, "This is from you (O Muhammad SAW)." Say: "All things are from Allah," so what is wrong with these people that they fail to understand any word? (An-Nisa 4:78)

Verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) will die and verily, they (too) will die. (Az-Zumar 39:30)

Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing). (Aali Imran 3:185)


And if you only could see when the Mujrimun (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, etc.) shall hang their heads before their Lord (saying) : "Our Lord! We have now seen and heard, so send us back (to the world), we will do righteous good deeds. Verily! We now believe with certainty." (As-Sajdah 32:12)

This is too late for them and Allah says that they will return
-to do the same evil things they used to do
-if they are returned to the dunya
-you can’t pull a stunt on Allah because He knows the future
-you can only do that to men because they don’t know the future

Until, when death comes to one of them (those who join partners with Allah), he says: "My Lord! Send me back, (Al-Mu'minun 23:99)
"So that I may do good in that which I have left behind!" No! It is but a word that he speaks, and behind them is Barzakh (a barrier) until the Day when they will be resurrected. (Al-Mu'minun 23:100)


And if We had willed, surely! We would have given every person his guidance, but the Word from Me took effect (about evil­doers), that I will fill Hell with jinn and mankind together. (As-Sajdah 32:13)

The shaitan asked "how can I be punished by fire, when I'm created from fire"
-he thinks he is wise but he is otherwise
-Allah SWT will fill the Hellfire with man and jinn, and they are called ath Thaqalain
-they have free will to do whatever they want
-because they were given free will and they abused the free will
-someone can ask why is the lion not thrown in the fire?
-because animals are not ath Thaqalain, they don’t have free will
-they will be turned to dust on Judgement day
-the kafir on judgement day will wish he can become dust like the animals,
-the angels do not have free will

Indeed, We have warned you of a near punishment on the Day when a man will observe what his hands have put forth and the disbeliever will say, "Oh, I wish that I were dust!" (An-Naba 78:40)


Then taste you (the torment of the Fire) because of your forgetting the Meeting of this Day of yours, (and) surely! We too will forget you, so taste you the abiding torment for what you used to do. (As-Sajdah 32:14)

Some Christians say there is more than one God because of the "we" in this Ayah
-this is called "the majestic we"
-but it is not "the plural we"
-you cannot explain the Quran before you study Balagha (rhetoric) and Grammar
-when queen Elizabeth said "we ...." its called "the royal we"
-but we say the majestic

Allah doesn’t forget but this means that He ignores you because
-you ignore Him and His commandments
-you can’t every ayah literally
-this resembles surah 9:67

They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them [accordingly]. Indeed, the hypocrites - it is they who are the defiantly disobedient. (At-Tawbah 9:67)


Only those believe in Our verses who, when they are reminded by them, fall down in prostration and exalt [Allah] with praise of their Lord, and they are not arrogant. (As-Sajdah 32:15)
 One of the characteristics of the believer is that he is humble
-and this is why he embraces Islam
-when he is making salah, his face is on the ground for sajdah
-this is a sign of humility
-this Ayah has the word sajda in it
-and the Surah takes its name from Ayah 15
-anyone with an atoms weight of pride will never enter the paradise
-pride is when you look down upon others thinking you are better than them
-or rejecting the truth when you know that it is the truth
It Is narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. Mas'ud that the Apostle of Allah (SAW), observed: He who has in his heart the weight of a mustard seed of pride shall not enter Paradise. A person (amongst his hearers) said: Verily a person loves that his dress should be fine, and his shoes should be fine. He (the Holy Prophet) remarked: Verily, Allah is Graceful and He loves Grace. Pride is disdaining the truth (out of self-conceit) and contempt for the people. [Sahih Muslim (1/93) No. 91]
It was narrated from ‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb via his father and grandfather that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “On the Day of Resurrection, the arrogant will be gathered like ants in the form of men…. [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2492]
Only Allah is Al Mutakabbir (the proud)
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Allah (mighty and sublime be He) said: Pride is My cloak and greatness My robe, and he who competes with Me in respect of either of them I shall cast into Hell-fire. [Abu Dawud (also by Ibn Majah and Ahmad) with sound chains of authority. This Hadith also appears in Muslim in another version.]
 As long as you menstruate, go to the toilet, become old and ugly,
-you cannot become proud
-and as long as you are going to die and your body decompose, you cannot be proud
-those who are given long life, they become weak again

And he to whom We grant long life We reverse in creation; so will they not understand? (Ya-Sin 36:68)
-the rasul used to seek refuge in old age

'A'isha (RA) narrrated the Prophet (SAW) used to say:

 اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الكَسَلِ وَالهَرَمِ، وَالمَأْثَمِ وَالمَغْرَمِ، وَمِنْ فِتْنَةِ القَبْرِ، وَعَذَابِ القَبْرِ، وَمِنْ فِتْنَةِ النَّارِ وَعَذَابِ النَّارِ، وَمِنْ شَرِّ فِتْنَةِ الغِنَى، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ الفَقْرِ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ المَسِيحِ الدَّجَّالِ، اللَّهُمَّ اغْسِلْ عَنِّي خَطَايَايَ بِمَاءِ الثَّلْجِ وَالبَرَدِ، وَنَقِّ قَلْبِي مِنَ الخَطَايَا كَمَا نَقَّيْتَ الثَّوْبَ الأَبْيَضَ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ، وَبَاعِدْ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ خَطَايَايَ كَمَا بَاعَدْتَ بَيْنَ المَشْرِقِ وَالمَغْرِبِ

(Allahumma inni A'udhu bika min al-kasal wal-haram, wal-ma'tham wal-maghrim, wa-min Fitnatil-Qabr, wa 'Adhabil-Qabr wa-min fitnatil-Naar wa-'Adhabin-Naar, wa-min sharri Fitnatil-Ghina, wa-A'udhu bika min Fitnatil-Faqr, wa-A'udhu bika min Fitnatil-Masihid-Dajjal, Allahum-maghsil 'Anni khatayaya bi-ma'ith-Thalji wal-Bardi, wa-naqqa Qalbi min al-Khataya kama naqaitath-Thawbal-Abyada minad-Danas, wa-ba'id bayni wa-bayna Khatayaya kama ba'Adta baynal-Mashriq wal-Maghrib).

"O Allah! I seek refuge with You from laziness and old age, from all kinds of sins and from being in debt; from the affliction of the Fire and from the punishment of the Fire and from the evil of the affliction of wealth; and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of poverty, and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of Al-Messiah Ad-Dajjal. O Allah! Wash away my sins with the water of snow and hail, and cleanse my heart from all the sins as a white garment is cleansed from the filth, and let there be a long distance between me and my sins, as You made East and West far from each other." [al-Bukhari (6368) and Muslim (589)]
