BY ABU YUSUF In the Qur’an, I have found several examples of people who achieved incredible things but their names and background are not mentioned at all.
BY NABEEL ALKHALIDY. THIS HAS BEEN REPRODUCED FROM THE SIBAWAY INSTITUTE. This tafseer shows how the Qur’an prophesies the establishment of the Zionist state of Israel and its future destruction at the hands of the believers. Israel will never be challenged or removed by the current regimes in the Muslim world who are its biggest protectors. Rather only with their removal and replacement with a Khilafah will the Muslims of Palestine finally find the justice they have been waiting decades for.
BY ABU YUSUF وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِى عَنِّى فَإِنِّى قَرِيبٌ ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لِى وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا۟ بِى لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then surely I am very near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me that they may walk in the right way. [2:186]
The story of Musa (as) and Pharaoh has countless timeless lessons for the believers to understand the continuous struggle between truth and falsehood. BY ABU YUSUF In one passage in Sura Al-Zhukruf from verses 46 to 56, Allah ﷻ gives us an account of the nature of the struggle between Musa (as) and Pharaoh. In this brief article, I want to focus on how Pharaoh mobilised public opinion against Musa (as) and his followers. It is essential to understand that controlling and commanding public opinion by any state or authority is equally important as commanding an army. Controlling the general public opinion is what gives a state the authority to rule and enact policies. It legitimises the action of the ruler in the minds of the public. It is essential for aware Muslims to be mindful of public opinion and those who shape and control it, and it is through this awareness one can identify the hidden aims and plans of the ruler or the state.
