In Surah 36:1-2 Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) says:
This book "The Quran" is full of wisdom

Ya-Sin. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings.] (Ya-Sin 36:1)
By the Qur'an, full of wisdom (i.e. full of laws, evidences, and proofs), (Ya-Sin 36:2)

The question that comes to mind is:
What are the reasons why the Quran was described as a wise book?

1. ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA) IS THE AUTHOR OF THE QURAN

Because of this, it is a wise book
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is The Greatest Scholar
One of His Names and Attributes is Al Hakim – The Wise

2. THE QURAN AGREES WITH MODERN DAY SCIENCE

It is impossible for a person to find a Qur’anic verse that contradicts science
An example is, the sun runs a course which is set for it

Another example is 96:16
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) speaks about your lying sinful forelock

A lying, sinful forelock! (Al-'Alaq 96:16)

Whenever a man wants to lie, he uses his front lobe of the brain to do so

Another example is 55:19-21

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)

The Quran is Allah's (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) revelation
Science is Allah's (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) creation
And Allah's (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) revelation doesn't contradict His creation

Another example is: 31:10
This is another scientific fact

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)

Another example is 25:61

Blessed be He Who has placed in the heaven big stars, and has placed therein a great lamp (sun), and a moon giving light. (Al-Furqan 25:61)

Why does Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) refer to the Sun as a lamp
But He never referred to the moon as a lamp?
Because the moon doesn't produce its own light and heat but the sun does
The moon is just a reflector
This is why Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) didn't refer to the moon as a lamp

Another example is 30:1-4

Alif ­Lam ­Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (Ar-Rum 30:1)
The Romans have been defeated. (Ar-Rum 30:2)
In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. (Ar-Rum 30:3)

The Arabic word ‘Adna’ translated as ‘nearest’ can also be translated as ‘lowest‘
The Lowest land here is Jordan
This is a scientific fact
The land where the battle was fought is the lowest point on earth

Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians), (Ar-Rum 30:4)

Narrated Abu Sa'eed: "On the Day of (the battle of) Badr, the Romans had a victory over the Persians. So the believers were pleased with that, then the following was revealed: Alif Lam Mim. The Romans have been defeated..." up to His saying: '...the believers will rejoice. (30:1-4)" He said: "So the believers were happy with the victory of the Romans over the Persians. (Jami At Tirmdhi: (1/43) Hadith 2935)

Another scientific fact is 21:30

Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? (Al-Anbiya 21:30)

This ayah is talking about two things:

1. The big bang because Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) says we split them apart
Them here means the heavens and the earth
They used to be one unit
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) created the bang
But the atheist try to say the bang came about by itself

2. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) created every living thing from water
When you read the Quran, Allah says "O you who believe"
But this time, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is speaking to the unbelievers
Because the unbelievers have made science their religion
So Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) taught them science using the Quran

There is a section of the bible which Christians are embarrassed about
This verse says the rabbit chew its cud

And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. [Leviticus 11:6 King James Version (KJV)]

The only animals that do this are those that have their stomachs compartmentalised
Like the cow and the goat
But the Christians say the rabbit poos and eats it
That is what is meant by "the rabbit chew its cud"
This bible verse have made many Christians to become atheist

3. BECAUSE THE QURAN RESEMBLES THE QURAN

The Quran did not check-mate the Quran

Allah has sent down the best statement, a Book (this Qur'an), its parts resembling each other in goodness and truth, oft-repeated. The skins of those who fear their Lord shiver from it (when they recite it or hear it). Then their skin and their heart soften to the remembrance of Allah. That is the guidance of Allah. He Guides therewith whom He pleases and whomever Allah sends astray, for him there is no guide. (Az-Zumar 39:23)

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has revealed the best hadith
Hadith means a speech
Its parts resemble each other
The Quran did not contradict the Quran

Jabir ibn Abdullah (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said in the Jumu’ah khutbah: "...To proceed. The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error..." [Sahih Muslim (2/592) No. 867]

However there are many contradictions in the bible
An example is Numbers 23:19

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? [Numbers 23:19King James Version (KJV)]

God is not a man, therefore He cannot repent

This above verse contradicts the Bible verse Genesis 6:6
The Christians are embarrassed about this also

And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. [Genesis 6:6King James Version (KJV)]

Do you see the clear contradiction?
Use these to debate with the kuffaar

The former says God doesn’t repent because He is not a man
And the latter says He repented

4. SOME SURAHS WERE REVEALED IN MAKKAH AND OTHERS WERE REVEALED IN MADINAH

The Makkan Surahs focused on Tawheed
The Madinan Surahs focused on Shariah

You should invite people to Islam using Tawheed first
The hadith below shows you how to make dawah

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: When the Prophet sent Muadh to Yemen, he said to him, "You are going to a nation from the people of the Scripture, so let the first thing to which you will invite them, be the Tauhid of Allah. If they learn that, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them, five prayers to be offered in one day and one night. And if they pray, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them Zakat of their properties and it is to be taken from the rich among them and given to the poor. And if they agree to that, then take from them Zakat but avoid the best property of the people." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith #469] BukharI (9/9😎 Hadith: 7372)

Get the people to love Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), than they will obey Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) automatically

“…When the people embraced Islam, the Verses regarding legal and illegal things were revealed. If the first thing to be revealed was: 'Do not drink alcoholic drinks.' people would have said, 'We will never leave alcoholic drinks,' and if there had been revealed, 'Do not commit illegal sexual intercourse, 'they would have said, 'We will never give up illegal sexual intercourse.' [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 61, Hadith #515]

So you have to build the Tauheed in the hearts
And they will submit to the sharia

5. THE QURAN ABROGATES ALL OF THE PREVIOUS BOOKS

Don't preach me the Shariah of Musa (‘alayhi salatu wa salam)
I'm only interested in the Shariah of Muhammad (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam)
Because when the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) saw Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reading the Torah, he got angry

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]

The Shariah of Muhammad (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) is mercy
More merciful than the Shariah of Musa (‘alayhi salatu wa salam)
The Shariah of Musa (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) said some things in the sea were haram
But the Rasool (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) said everything in the sea is halal

Abu Huraira reported that a man asked the Prophet (SAW): 'We travel in the sea and we carry with us little water. If we used it for wudu then we would be suffering thirst! So should we still use this water for wudu?' The Prophet (SAW) replied: "Its [sea] water is pure and its dead meat [fish and whatever lives in sea and die by leaving it] is Halal to eat" [Sunan Tirmidhi (1/100) No. 69, Sunan Abu Dawud (1/21) No. 83, Sunan al-Nasa'i (1/50) No. 59, Sunan Ibn Majah (1/250) No. 386, Sunan al-Darime (1/201) No. 729, Musnad Ahmad (2/361) No. 8720]

This is our Shariah

"Sometime we may carry a little water with us in the ship while at sea; if we use the water we may get thirsty. Can we use the sea water for purification?" The Prophet said: "Its water is pure and its carrion is lawful" (Tirmidhi)

Some scholars say the sea snake is haram
But Uthaymeen allows you to eat sea snake and salt water crocodile
Hanafi fiqh says eating crab is makrooh as well as the shrimp and lobster

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, after stating that it is more likely that it is permissible to eat crocodiles and sea snakes: The correct view is that nothing is excluded from that, and that all the sea creatures which can only live in water are halaal, alive or dead, because of the general meaning of the verse – i.e., “Lawful to you is (the pursuit of) water game and its use for food” [al-Maa’idah 5:64]. End quote from al-Sharh al-Mumti’ (6/327)

Because they say these things are scavengers
But the Maliki and the Hanbali opinion says everything in the sea is halal because of:

Abu Huraira reported that a man asked the Prophet (SAW): 'We travel in the sea and we carry with us little water. If we used it for wudu then we would be suffering thirst! So should we still use this water for wudu?' The Prophet (SAW) replied: "Its [sea] water is pure and its dead meat [fish and whatever lives in sea and die by leaving it] is Halal to eat" [Sunan Tirmidhi (1/100) No. 69, Sunan Abu Dawud (1/21) No. 83, Sunan al-Nasa'i (1/50) No. 59, Sunan Ibn Majah (1/250) No. 386, Sunan al-Darime (1/201) No. 729, Musnad Ahmad (2/361) No. 8720]


6. THE QURAN IS SUITABLE FOR ALL TIMES

Because of this, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) says 5:3

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)

The Quran cannot become obsolete

7. BECAUSE THE QURAN WAS REVEALED IN THE BEST LANGUAGE

Arabic is the Sunnah of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala).

Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an in order that you may understand. (Yusuf 12:2)

Why? Because Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) chose to reveal the Quran in Arabic
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has revealed The Most Sacred Book – Quran
With His closest Angel – Gibril (‘alayhi salatu wa salam)
To His favorite Prophet – Muhammad (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam)
In the best language - Arabic
In the most sacred month - Ramadan
In the holiest city - Makkah

Arabic is a proper language
English is not
English is called a pigeon language
In English, you can play with words
Because of this, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) said the Quran was revealed in Arabic so you can learn it properly

Imam Shafi'i (rh) said: "Every Muslim is obligated to learn the Arabic tongue to the utmost of his power in order [to be able] to profess through it that "There is no Ilah but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger" and to utter what is mandated upon him, the takbir, and what is commanded, the tasbih, and the tashahhud and others." [al-Risala al-Shafi'i (pg. 47)]

Ibn Taymiyyah said: "Moreover, the Arabic language itself is part of Islam, and knowing Arabic is an obligatory duty. If it is a duty to understand the Qur’an and Sunnah, and they cannot be understood without knowing Arabic, then the means that is needed to fulfil the duty is also obligatory.” [Iqtida' as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem (1/527)]

The Arabic language is your deen.

According to a hadith narrated from ’Umar (RA), he said: ("Learn Arabic for it is part of your Religion, and learn how the estate of the deceased should be divided (faraa‘id) for these are part of your Religion."). This command of ’Umar, to learn Arabic and the Sharee’ah combines the things that are needed, for Religion involves understanding words and actions. Understanding Arabic is the way to understand the words of Islâm, and understanding the Sunnah is the way to understand the actions of Islâm…" [Ibn Taymiyyah in 'Iqtida' as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem' (1/527-52😎]

Ibn Taymiyyah said: “As for becoming accustomed to talking to one another in a language other than Arabic, which is the symbol of Islam and the language of the Qur’aan, so that this becomes a habit in the land, with one’s family and household members, with one’s friends, in the marketplace, when addressing government representatives or authority figures or when speaking to people of knowledge, undoubtedly this is makrooh (disliked), because it involves being like the non-Arabs, which is makrooh, as stated previously. Hence when the early Muslims went to live in Syria and Egypt, where the people spoke Byzantine Greek, and in Iraq and Khurasaan, where the people spoke Farsi, and the Maghrib (North Africa) where the people spoke Berber, they taught the people of those countries to speak Arabic, so that Arabic became the prevalent language in those lands, and all the people, Muslim and kaafir alike, spoke Arabic. Such was also the case in Khurasaan in the past, then they became lax with regard to the language and got used to speaking Farsi until it became prevalent and Arabic was forgotten by most of them. Undoubtedly this is makrooh. [Iqtida' as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem (1/526-528)]

When you speak English, it makes you become a hypocrite
Don’t you see how the English speaking Shaikhs speak kufr
Because the English language has destroyed them
Most of them believe in Democracy and condemn the Dowla
The only ones who didn't speak kufr is Anwar al-Awlaki (rahimahullah)
And Shaikh Musa Ahmad Jibril (hafidhahullah) but the rest speak kufr
Some believe in gay marriage and believe Jesus was crucified
And say you can pray to Muhammad (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam)
You wonder if they believe in the Quran

8. THE QURAN HAS ACCURATE PREDICTIONS

These are called prophecies of the Quran

Perish the two hands of Abu Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he! (Al-Masad 111:1)

If you were living in the time of the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam), and you heard this surah come down and approached Abu Lahab to give him dawah, you are a kaafir
Because Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) predicted that he would die a kafir
So you giving him dawah means you are saying that you can change his heart
And so his ending

Another prediction is 74:26

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is saying Al Waleed was going to die a kaafir
He was jealous of the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam)
He plotted a meeting to slander his (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam)’s name
Telling everyone Muhammad (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) was practicing black magic

I will cast him into Hell-fire (Al-Muddaththir 74:26)

Another example is 10:90-92

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)

The body of the Pharaoh was on the ocean floor for 3,000 years until it was discovered.
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) predicted this.
His body did not decompose
Maurice Baucali became Muslim because of this verse

THE BIBBLE, QURAN, AND SCIENCE:

He wrote the book "The Bible, Quran and Science" after becoming Muslim

9. THE QURAN IS FREE FROM GRAMMATICAL ERRORS

Muhammad (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) was illiterate and could not write the Quran
He was right handed

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)

10. THE QURAN DOESN'T PLACE ON YOU A BURDEN GREATER THAN YOU CAN BEAR

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) says in 2:286

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned… (Al-Baqarah 2:286)

For example:

You don't have to fast if you are pregnant or breast feeding, and you don't have to make it up
All you have to do is give away £100 in charity or $150 for each Ramadan
Even though the four great Imams say you should make it up
They got it wrong
What I'm saying is very controversial
Pregnant women don't make up Ramadan
You make up Ramadan because of menstruation

Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) used to get his women pregnant and did not make them make it up

"Ibn 'Abbas used to say to his wives who were pregnant: 'You are in the same situation as those who can fast [but do not]. You are to pay the "ransom" and do not have to make up the days later.' “Of its chain, ad-Daraqutni says it is sahih. Fiqh-us-Sunnah 3.115

This scholar, Ad-Daraqutni was an Iraqi scholar
He was from a section of the city that sold cotton cloth

When they were digging the ditch, a man said to the prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) ‘look at me I'm so hungry I have a rock tied to my stomach’ he responded that he had two tied to his stomach

Abu Talhah (RA) narrated: We complained to Allah’s Messenger (SAW) about our hunger and raising from our stomach (the garment) bared the stone each of us had tied to it. He showed that he had two stones (tied to his stomach.) [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/585) No. 2371, Bayhaqi in ‘Shu'ab al Emaan’ (13/54) No. 9943]

This proves to you that the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) suffered just like you
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) sent a man to be the Prophet because if He had sent an Angel, You would have used it as an argument on Day Of Judgement
You would have complained the Angel was stronger than man

11. IT COINCIDES WITH ALL OF YOUR NATURAL INSTINCTS

Communism failed because it goes against your natural instincts, as well as democracy
The society is melting down because it is batil
Look at what is happening in Baltimore

And say: "Truth (i.e. Islamic Monotheism or this Qur'an or Jihad against polytheists) has come and Batil (falsehood, i.e. Satan or polytheism, etc.) has vanished. Surely! Batil is ever bound to vanish." (Al-Isra 17:81)

Do you think the demonstration is going to be restricted to Baltimore?
They are killing the black man all over the US.

They bring brooms to clean the streets of Baltimore
They need to clean their hearts of kufr and racism
There are a lot of black people in Saudi
So why aren't the whites killing the blacks there?
Because it shows the superiority of the religion
Some Saudis are Syrian origin others are Nigerian origin
In the US, the Bible belt like Texas has the most racist people
So Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) said in 30:30:

So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq­illah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [Tafsir At­Tabari, Vol 21, Page 41] (Ar-Rum 30:30)

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) knows you love wealth, so Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has made trading halal and Riba haram for you

…whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury). (Al-Baqarah 2:275)

Communism failed because they say everything is owned by the state and everyone is equal

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) knows you love women, so Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) allows you to get married to 4 women

And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan­girls, then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one  (An-Nisa 4:3)

12. ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA) HAS MADE THE QURAN EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND MEMORIZE

And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (Al-Qamar 54:17)

13. ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA) REVEALED THE QURAN GRADUALLY TO MAKE IT EASY TO PRACTICE

An example is the process He (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) took to make khumr haram

1. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) appealed to their rationale:

They ask you (O Muhammad) concerning alcoholic drink and gambling. Say: "In them is a great sin, and (some) benefit for men, but the sin of them is greater than their benefit." And they ask you what they ought to spend. Say: "That which is beyond your needs." Thus Allah makes clear to you His Laws in order that you may give thought." (Al-Baqarah 2:219)

2. The second verse that came down about khumr was 4:43

O you who believe! Approach not As­Salat (the prayer) when you are in a drunken state until you know (the meaning) of what you utter,. (An-Nisa 4:43)

When this ayah came down the Sahabah were still drinking
Because Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) didn't make alcohol haram yet

3. 5:90-91 came next to make it haram

O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al­Ansab, and Al­Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitan's (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:90)

That is when the Sahabah stopped drinking totally

Shaitan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from As-Salat (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain? (Al-Ma'idah 5:91)

Then Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) elaborated
People on drugs, miss their prayers
Even if you are on soft drugs, it makes you miss your prayers

14. TO SOLVE PROBLEMS AND DILEMMAS OF THE RASOOL (SALALLAHU 'ALAYHI WA SALLAM)

When Ayesha (radiyallahu ‘anha) was slandered
The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) didn't know what to believe
He asked many in order to know what to conclude on
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) said she didn't have an affair

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) said the people told a big lie (Ifk)

Prophet Nuh and Lut (‘alayhima salatu wa salam) had kaafir wives
So it is possible for a wife of a Prophet to have an affair

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (An-Nur 24:11)

But Ayesha (radiyallahu ‘anha) didn't have an affair, because Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) revealed her innocence in the above ayah

The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) approached Zaynab bint Jahsh (radiyallahu ‘anha) about the affair
Zaynab said she only knows good about Ayesha (radiyallahu ‘anha)
She protected her co-wife because of her taqwa, she was saved

On the authority of Suhail bin Abi Saleh from his father: ‘A man once asked Abu Hurayrah (RA), ‘What is al taqwa?” He replied, “Have you ever taken a path filled with thorns?” The man replied, “I have.” Abu Hurayrah asked him, “What did you do?” He replied, “When I saw a thorn I would dodge it or pass over it or behind it.” Abu Hurayrah said, “That is al-taqwa.”’ [Al-Zuhd al-Kabir al-Bayhaqi (p350-351) No. 963]

So she will be remembered in history as the wife who defended her co-wife
A woman of today would have said "divorce her, she's not a good wife, divorce her"
She would have taken the opportunity to destroy her
But not all women of today are like this but some of them

Aisha further said: Allah's Apostle also asked Zainab bint Jaysh about my case. He said, "O Zainab! What have you seen?" She replied, "O Allah's Apostle! I protect my hearing and my sight (by refraining from telling lies). I know nothing but good (about Aisha)." Of all the wives of Allah's Apostle, it was Zainab who aspired to receive from him the same favor as I used to receive, yet, Allah saved her (from telling lies) because of her piety. But her sister, Hamna, kept on fighting on her behalf so she was destroyed as were those who invented and spread the slander. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #274]

They would gang up with the hypocrites against their co-wife
Zaynab (radiyallahu ‘anha) had taqwa
That is why they are the Mothers of Believers

15. THE QURAN WAS REVEALED TO CORRECT THE MISTAKES OF THE PROPHET (SALALLAHU 'ALAYHI WA SALLAM)

A Shia would say "fear Allah"
You slander the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam)
He didn't make any mistakes
But he did make mistakes

The first mistake is he took captives at battle

It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)

Also described in the below hadith:

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to Abu Bakr and 'Umar (Allah be pleased with them): What is your opinion about these captives? Abu Bakr said: They are our kith and kin. I think you should release them after getting from them a ransom. This will be a source of strength to us against the infidels. It is quite possible that Allah may guide them to Islam. Then the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: What is your opinion. Ibn Khattab? He said: Messenger of Allah. I do not hold the same opinion as Abu Bakr. I am of the opinion that you should hand them over to us so that we may cut off their heads. Hand over 'Aqil to 'Ali that he may cut off his head, and hand over such and such relative to me that I may but off his head. They are leaders of the disbelievers and veterans among them. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) approved the opinion of Abu Bakr and did not approve what I said The next day when I came to the Messenger of Allah (SAW), I found that both he and Abu Bakr were sitting shedding tears. I said: Messenger of Allah, why are you and your Companion shedding tears? Tell me the reason. For I will weep too, if not, I will at least pretend to weep in sympathy with you. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I weep for what has happened to your companions for taking ransom (from the prisoners). I was shown the torture to which they were subjected. It was brought to me as close as this tree. (He pointed to a tree close to him.) Then God revealed the verse:" It is not befitting for a prophet that he should take prisoners until the force of the disbelievers has been crushed..." to the end of the verse:" so eat ye the spoils of war, (it is) lawful and pure. So Allah made booty lawful for them." [Sahih Muslim (3/1383-1385) No. 1763]

Many of you say the Islamic State is brutal
You think that because Islam began as something strange and will end as something strange
So give good news to the strangers

Abu Hurayrah narrated: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.” [Sahih Muslim (1/130) No. 145]

It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)

The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) and Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) were crying when this ayah came down
Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) asked why
He wanted to cry also

"I found that both he and Abu Bakr were sitting shedding tears. I said: Messenger of Allah, why are you and your Companion shedding tears? Tell me the reason. For I will weep ate, if not, I will at least pretend to weep in sympathy with you. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I weep for what has happened to your companions for taking ransom (from the prisoners). I was shown the torture to which they were subjected. It was brought to me as close as this tree. (He pointed to a tree close to him.) Then God revealed the verse:" It is not befitting for a prophet that he should take prisoners until the force of the disbelievers has been crushed..." to the end of the verse:" so eat ye the spoils of war, (it is) lawful and pure. So Allah made booty lawful for them." [Sahih Muslim (3/1383-1385) No. 1763]

One of the captives begged to be freed
The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) believed him and released him
He came back one year later and killed many Muslim

80:1-2 is another example

(The Prophet (Peace be upon him)) frowned and turned away, ('Abasa 80:1)
Because there came to him the blind man (i.e. 'Abdullah bin Umm-Maktum, who came to the Prophet (Peace be upon him) while he was preaching to one or some of the Quraish chiefs). ('Abasa 80:2)

The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) was busy giving dawa to the leaders of Makkah
Then a blind man came and asked the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) to teach him the religion
The prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) frowned at his ‘interruption’
The blind man took shahadah, but not the leaders of Makkah

The Shia refute the above Ayah claiming it was Abu Jahal who frowned
So you have to give them the following ayah

O Prophet! Why do you ban (for yourself) that which Allah has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Tahrim 66:1)

Narrated By 'Aisha: The Prophet used to stay (for a period) in the house of Zainab bint Jahsh (one of the wives of the Prophet) and he used to drink honey in her house. Hafsa and I decided that when the Prophet entered upon either of us, she would say, "I smell in you the bad smell of Maghafir (a bad smelling raisin). Have you eaten Maghafir?" When he entered upon one of us, she said that to him. He replied (to her), "No, but I have drunk honey in the house of Zainab bint Jahsh, and I will never drink it again." Then the following verse was revealed: 'O Prophet ! Why do you ban (for you) that which Allah has made lawful for you?... (up to) If you two (wives of the Prophet turn in repentance to Allah.' (66.1-4) The two were 'Aisha and Hafsa And also the Statement of Allah: 'And (Remember) when the Prophet disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his wives!' (66.3) i.e., his saying, “ ut I have drunk honey." [al-Bukhari (5267) and Muslim (1474)]

Honey is very important; it contains antibiotics
For the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) to say he would never drink honey, was a big mistake

Another mistake was when he prayed over Abdullah Ibn Ubbay

And never (O Muhammad SAW) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and died while they were Fasiqun (rebellious, - disobedient to Allah and His Messenger SAW). (At-Tawbah 9:84)

Ibn Umar (RA) narrated: Abdullah son of Abdullah ibn Ubayy came to Allah’s Messenger (SAW) when his father died, and said, ‘Give me your shirt that I may shroud him in it, and offer his funeral Salah and seek forgiveness for him.” So, he gave him his shirt and said, “When you are over (with preparations), call me.” When he intended to offer the Salah, Umar pulled him, saying, “Has not Allah forbidden us to pray over the hypocrites?” He said, “I am between two options either to seek forgiveness for them or not to seek forgiveness for them”, and he offered Salah over him. So Allah revealed. "And never offer a prayer on any one of them who dies, and do not stand by his grave." (At-Tawbah 9:84) [al-Bukhari (1269) and Muslim (2774)]

The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) prayed over a hypocrite and Allah revealed 9:84
It is haram to pray over hypocrites
Only a hypocrite prays over a hypocrite

16. THE QURAN IS COMPREHENSIVE AND CONTAINS ALL SUBJECTS

12:5 is talking about sibling rivalry

He (the father) said: "O my son! Relate not your vision to your brothers, lest they arrange a plot against you. Verily! Shaitan (Satan) is to man an open enemy! (Yusuf 12:5)

12:18 is about criminology or forensic

And they brought his shirt stained with false blood. He said: "Nay, but your ownselves have made up a tale. So (for me) patience is most fitting. And it is Allah (Alone) Whose help can be sought against that which you assert." (Yusuf 12:18)

When the hypocrites accused Ayesha (radiyallahu ‘anha), she said the same thing
That Yaqub (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) said to his sons

Narrated By Az-Zuhri: Urwa bin Az-Zubair, Said bin Al-Musaiyab, 'Al-Qama bin Waqqas and 'Ubaidullah bin 'Abdullah related the narration of 'Aisha, the wife the Prophet, when the slanderers had said about her what they had said and Allah later declared her innocence. Each of them related a part of the narration (wherein) the Prophet said (to 'Aisha). "If you are innocent, then Allah will declare your innocence: but if you have committed a sin, then ask for Allah's Forgiveness and repent to him." 'Aisha said, "By Allah, I find no example for my case except that of Joseph's father (when he said), 'So(for me) patience is most fitting.' " Then Allah revealed the ten Verses: "Verily those who spread the slander are a gang amongst you..."(24.11) [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #212]

To accuse a woman of having an affair, is one of the 7 major sins

Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet (SAW), said, "Avoid the seven fatal sins." They said, "Messenger of Allah, what are they?" He said, "Associating with Allah, sorcery, killing a soul which Allah has forbidden, except by legal right, consuming usury, consuming the property of an orphan, fleeing on the day of battle and slandering unthinking chaste believing women." [al-Bukhari (2766) and Muslim (89)]
  
Shirk
Sorcery
Killing a Muslim
Ribaa
Stealing from an orphan
Leaving jihad
Slandering a pious Muslimah

12:26-27 is talking about sexual harassment

He [Yusuf (Joseph)] said: "It was she that sought to seduce me," - and a witness of her household bore witness (saying) : "If it be that his shirt is torn from the front, then her tale is true and he is a liar! (Yusuf 12:26)

"But if it be that his shirt is torn from the back, then she has told a lie and he is speaking the truth!" (Yusuf 12:27)

Women commit sexual harassment as well but men do it more
Because the testosterone is stronger than estrogen

We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An'am 6:38)

27:18 is talking about animal psychology.
A female ant cried out, she acted out according to her motherly instinct

Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: "O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not." (An-Naml 27:18)

Males are right wing politicians, and females are left wing politicians
Because women have more mercy in their hearts than men

17. THE QURAN IS PROTECTED FROM HUMAN INTERFERENCE

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)

The Shia believe the Quran is corrupted
They also say Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is a liar who makes mistakes

SHIA HUJJAH: “Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]

SHIA HUJJAH: The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

18. THE QURAN PROVIDES YOU WITH ARGUMENTS TO REFUTE THE ENEMY

An example is the Jews - They claim they are the chosen people
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) says

Say to (them) : "If the home of the Hereafter with Allah is indeed for you specially and not for others, of mankind, then long for death if you are truthful." (Al-Baqarah 2:94)

But they will never long for it because of what their hands have sent before them (i.e. what they have done). And Allah is All-Aware of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers). (Al-Baqarah 2:95)

And verily, you will find them (the Jews) the greediest of mankind for life and (even greedier) than those who - ascribe partners to Allah (and do not believe in Resurrection - Magians, pagans, and idolaters, etc.). Everyone of them wishes that he could be given a life of a thousand years. But the grant of such life will not save him even a little from (due) punishment. And Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Baqarah 2:96)

This is Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) teaching you how to refute the Jew

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) teaches you how to refute the Christians too
They say that Jesus (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) and his mother are gods

They both used to eat food (as any other human being, while Allah does not eat). Look how We make the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to them, yet look how they are deluded away (from the truth). (Al-Ma'idah 5:75)

If they ate food and went to the toilet, they cannot be God
Because God doesn't go to the toilet

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) teaches you how to refute the atheist in 52:35

Were they created by nothing, or were they themselves the creators? (At-Tur 52:35)

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) teaches you to refute those who claim to be a gay Muslim

So We brought out from therein the believers. (Adh-Dhariyat 51:35)
But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters]. (Adh-Dhariyat 51:36)

This means a gay cannot be a Muslim

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) teaches you how to refute the grave worshippers

Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say) : "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Az-Zumar 39:3)

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) dismissed the grave worshippers as liars and kuffaar

Hamza Yusuf needs to learn this ayah

If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call, and if (in case) they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them. And none can inform you (O Muhammad SAW) like Him Who is the All­Knower (of each and everything)[]. (Fatir 35:14)

HAMZA YUSUF: PRAY TO MUHAMMAD:

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) teaches you how to refute those who say Muhammad
(Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) is Nur and not human

Say (O Muhammad SAW) : "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God i.e. Allah). So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord." (Al-Kahf 18:110)

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) refutes the Shia who say Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was a kaafir

If you help him (Muhammad SAW) not (it does not matter), for Allah did indeed help him when the disbelievers drove him out, the second of two, when they (Muhammad SAW and Abu Bakr) were in the cave, and he (SAW) said to his companion (Abu Bakr) : "Be not sad (or afraid), surely Allah is with us." Then Allah sent down His Sakinah (calmness, tranquillity, peace, etc.) upon him, and strengthened him with forces (angels) which you saw not, and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowermost, while it was the Word of Allah that became the uppermost, and Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:40)

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) refutes the Madkhali who say to dismantle the Shariah is a minor kufr in 5:60

Say (O Muhammad SAW to the people of the Scripture) : "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell­fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)." (Al-Ma'idah 5:60)

If to dismantle the Shariah was a minor kufr, why did Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) turn the Jews into swine and monkeys?

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) refutes the Democrats who believe in majoritarianism

And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah's Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie. (Al-An'am 6:116)

If you obey the majority, they will lead you astray
The majority are always evil
In any country in the world
We don't follow the majority, we follow Quran and Sunnah

19. ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA) USES SHORT SENTENCES TO EXPRESS BIG IDEAS

And there is (a saving of) life for you in Al-Qisas (the Law of Equality in punishment), O men of understanding, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2). (Al-Baqarah 2:179)

20. ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA) USES THE STORIES OF THE PROPHETS

To teach us psychology, sociology and history
History repeats itself because of three reasons:

1. The human nature doesn't change
2. The plot of the satan doesn’t change
3. The Sunnah of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) doesn't change

Then, can they expect anything (else), but the Sunnah (way of dealing) of the peoples of old? So no change will you find in Allah's Sunnah (way of dealing), and no turning off will you find in Allah's Sunnah (way of dealing). (Fatir 35:43)

This is why the people of Kathmandu are suffering
They are pagans, Hindus -idol worshippers

The first idol worshippers were the people of Nuh (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) destroyed with a flood
People of Hud (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) were next and were destroyed with wind

The people of Salih (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) were destroyed
Because they killed Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) she camel
They were killed with one clap

The people of Shuaib (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) cheated with the scales
They became rich but had no barakah in their wealth

The people of Lut (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) were also destroyed
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) destroyed them with fire and brimstone
They were the first to commit the crime of homosexuality

One idol worshipper after the other were destroyed by natural disasters
You are not allowed to feel sorry for the people of Kathmandu
They worship a black erected penis - idol worshippers
They are pagans
They built a tower with the lord Shiva (the Hindu god for sex) at the top
Hippies used to go to Kathmandu in the 60's for sex (or fun)
This earthquake was forthcoming



Question #1: Asalaamualaikum Shaikh. Please in your own time check this short clip and give us your thoughts. It's an excerpt from a debate between Shabir Ally and some idiotic Christian buffoon who claims that in Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 61,  Obaid Ibn Kabh had words in his Quran that are not present in today's Quran with regards to chapter 33,  and that Obaid was in disagreement with Abdullah Ibn Masood. Shabir Ally at one point appears to concede that the Quran had two different words for 'wool' (i.e. 'ihm' and 'suhf').  Kindly advise.  Jzk.

Answer 1: No doubt that Allah says:

Whatever a Verse (revelation) do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allah is able to do all things? (Al-Baqarah 2:106)

Surah Taubah was as long as Surah Baqara but it was reduced
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) reduced it out of mercy for us
To make the Quran easy to memorize

As for the verse that Ayesha had under her bed and the goat ate it
I asked my shaikhs about it
A kaafir would say the Quran is not complete because a goat ate a page of it

The verse of stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my bed. When the Messenger of Allah (SAW) expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper." [(Sunan Ibn Maja, Volume 2, Page 39) (Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Volume 6, Page 269)]

Whether the goat ate it or not, it is inconsequential
The verse is about stoning to death and suckling
Suckling was reduced from 10 to 5 times
If you want someone to be your foster son, the suckling will be 5 times (not 10)


Question #2: Asalamu alaikum Shaikh, the Shia claims that the Prophet
(Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) was able to read and write towards the end of his life, and they claim there is an ayah for their claim. How do we refute them? May Allah protect you Shaikh.

Answer 2: Someone asked Uthaymeen this question
He said the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) could not read or write
If he was able to later in life, it was not on a professional level
People ask if the Prophet (Salallahu 'Alayhi wa sallam) could read or write because of the treaty of Hudaibiyyah


Question #3: I heard someone say about Imam Abdul Wahab (rahimahullah) that he stated in kitabul tawheed that Adam (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) and Hawa committed shirk. I have never heard this argument, can you please help?

Answer 3: Adam (‘alayhi salatu wa salam) and Hawa didn't commit kufr or shirk
They made a mistake
They were punished for the mistake
Because they were told not to obey the shaitan
The word "shirk" is too harsh


Question #4: Assalam aleykum ya sheikh. may Allah protect you. What is your advice on a woman who tells her husband that she feel jealous of hoor al ain? Will the women of dunya be more beautiful than hoor al ain?

Answer 4: Say to her when you go to Paradise, you will be more beautiful than the women of Paradise
So you should work hard for Paradise
There will be NO jealousy in Paradise


Question #5: As a barber in dar ul harb, is it halal to cut various hairstyles like faux hawks , Mohawks and shaves particularly if I have kuffaar as clientele?

Answer 5: You are not allowed to cut these hair styles for the Muslim

But it is ok to do it for the kaarir because when the kaafir dies, he is going to the hellfire
