Which Then, Of The Favors Of Your Lord Wills O Jinn And Men You Twain Will Deny?

Starting from the creation of mankind to the judgment day everything is the creation of God. Allah is the lord of all the worlds, the heavens and the earth. Not even a bird can fly if God did not give him power to fly. Nor the boats float if there is no up thrust or buoyancy of water on the boat. Nor a creature can walk on earth if there is no gravity by God? Nothing can be stable if God takes the friction away.

We can never be able to count the blessings of God. Thus when awe can’t even count them how can we ever think of paying him back? That is impossible even this body and soul is a blessing of Allah. Starting from cradle to grave everything from the side of God is a blessing. Leadership is one of the blessings of God it has nothing to do with selection or election of people. When we read and learn Quran we find out what their real meaning of leadership and political power is in Islam. As it is said in Quran that:

“Allah has promised those of you who believe and do good works to make them masters in the land” (24:55).

This leadership is deserved by those who have completely surrendered themselves to the will of Allah. In Quran one example of this granting of leadership is Abraham. In Quran it is aid that Allah tested him in different ways and then gave him the gift of immamat. Allah tests the mankind all their lives and they are either granted with gifts, blessings or punished depending upon the result of their test. As it is said in Quran that:

God has made an example of the city which was once safe and peaceful. Its provisions used to come in abundance from every quarter: but its people denied the favors of Allah. Therefore, He afflicted them with famine and fear as a punishment for what they did. (16:112)

After the granting of what a man has deserved either he becomes proud of what he has or gets dismayed for what has been taken away from him. Man is so ungrateful and ignorant the powers of Allah.

The students of Islamic schools are able to put their lives in the best way Allah wants the muslims to be like, i.e. peaceful grateful and completely surrendered to Allah. This is done by teaching students Quran.

Online Quran is also spreading literacy is Quran in all the parts of the world.

Comparative religion analysis

God created Adam taught him that God id his lord and gave him knowledge. Then HE gave him a free will so that he can distinguish between good and evil. Then in every time he sent is guidance so that the human races don’t say that they were not guided in the right direction. Islamic schools are one form of preaching Islam.

Then he sent his books torah, Psalms and Gospels to guide people. And finally he sent the Quran. Which is the final scripture sent by God. Therefore we see Quran and Sunnah guiding us to learn Quran.

And [O Prophet!] We have revealed to you the Book with the truth in confirmation of the shari’ah before it, and standing as a guardian over it. Therefore give judgment among these [People of the Book] according to the guidance revealed by God and do not yield to their whims by swerving from the truth revealed to you. For each of you, we have ordained a shari’ah and assigned a path, and had God pleased, He could have made of you one community: but it is His wish to try you by that which He has bestowed upon you. So, compete with each other in good deeds. To God shall you all return. Then He shall disclose upon you all your differences. (5:48)

Quran is an instinctive Guidance, the Sunah of Abraham, and the Scriptures of the Prophets. Quran tells us the concept of good and bad and preaching:

And true believers, both men and women, are friends to one another. They urge one another to what is good and forbid what is evil; (9:71)

Then in Quran HE asks us to follow the religion of Abraham:

Then We revealed to you to follow the ways of Abraham, who was true in faith and was not among the polytheists. (16:123)

Then he sent his books torah, Psalms and Gospels to guide people. History tells us that that Christians and Jews have made modifications in there scriptures.

[O Prophet!], He has revealed to you the Book with the truth, in confirmation of the scriptures which preceded it; and before this He has already revealed the Torah and the Gospel for the guidance of mankind, and [after them] revealed this Furqan. Indeed, those that deny God’s revelations shall be sternly punished; God is mighty and capable of retribution. (3:3-4)

It is mentioned in Quran that these were also books of GOD:

O Prophet (sws)! We have sent revelations to you as We sent revelations to Noah and to the prophets who came after him, and as We sent revelations to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his progeny and to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, Solomon, and We gave the Psalms to David. (4:163)

We have online Quran to have an analysis of comparative religion.

Online Quran Learning – The Benefits!

The exact meaning of Quran is "the recitation". Entailing this, learning and reciting this holy book is considered as one of the greatest and noblest acts that can be performed by any Muslim. Quran reading can surely refresh us and give us a feeling of being under the blessings of the Almighty Allah. Everyone knows that the holy Quran is rich with information on all subjects and is equally beneficial to us in this world and hereafter, and due to this many online platforms have been established where you can learn and read Quran online.

Online Islamic school is a source for quality online education for Quran, Hadith, Fiqah and many other Islamic topics. There are qualified Islamic teachers are available to help learn Qur'an online according to Tajweed rules, providing one-on-one lectures. Tajweed and its application can only be learned with a qualified teacher. The rules themselves can be studied independently, but their correct application can only be done by listening to, reciting to, and being corrected by, a qualified teacher of the Qur’an.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "The most superior among you (Muslims) are those who learn the Qur'an and teach it." [Sahih Bukhari (Book #61, Hadith #546) thus the importance to learn Quran is evident as it is the last revelation of GOD. One meaning of Qur’an is "recitation", the Qur’an itself outlining the general method of how it is to be recited: slowly and in rhythmic tones. Tajwid is the term for techniques of recitation, and assessed in terms of how accessible the recitation is to those who are intent on concentrating on the words and recite the Qur’an in slow, measured rhythmic tones.

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Read the Qur’an, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.” [Muslim]
