Towards the Inner Vision of the Truth


"Fain would they put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light however much the disbelievers are averse." — Holy Qur'an 61:8


Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall's Translation

Surah Shams: The Sun

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

091.001 By the sun and his brightness,
091.002 And the moon when she followeth him,
091.003 And the day when it revealeth him,
091.004 And the night when it enshroudeth him,
091.005 And the heaven and Him Who built it,
091.006 And the earth and Him Who spread it,
091.007 And a soul and Him Who perfected it
091.008 And inspired it (with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (what is) right for it.
091.009 He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow,
091.010 And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it.
091.011 (The tribe of) Thamud denied (the truth) in their rebellious pride,
091.012 When the basest of them broke forth
091.013 And the messenger of Allah said: It is the she-camel of Allah, so let her drink!
091.014 But they denied him, and they hamstrung her, so Allah doomed them for their sin and rased (their dwellings).
091.015 He dreadeth not the sequel (of events).


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
