PREFACE TO TO UNIQUE COMPILATION OF THE EVER GLORIOUS QUR’AN

(Most Comprehensive)

All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of ‘Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists) and peace be upon the Master of the Messengers, Hazrat Muhammad (SAW).

Indeed this most comprehensive and Unique Compilation of  most frequently read and recited Surahs of the Ever Glorious Qur’an, is a humble attempt to enable the Muslimeen in particular to understand and assimilate the teachings of Allah Ta’ala as contained in Verses of the Qur’an, in the best possible explanatory manner, in the light of Sahih Hadiths – Alhamdulillah.

This humble compilation is unique simply because it incorporates 2 (Two) Transliterations, 2 (Two) Arabic Texts  and 2 (Two) meanings in English in addition to Sahih Hadiths relevant to the Verses, mostly from Sahih Al-Bukhari in a most authentic manner along with the Arabic Text of each Surahs of the Ever Glorious Qur’an as part of this compilation which is spread over to 30 Parts of the Ever Glorious Qur’an.

Full Arabic Text of each Part or Para is also given at the end of the Unique Compilation just to enable reading and recital quite leisurely being most rewarding always.

A Qur’anic Verse from Surah Munafiqun (V.63:08) is quoted as under, wherein Allah Ta’ala has surely blessed the Ummat e Muhammadiya abundantly – Masha Allah.

(V.63:08): “….wal lil la_hil iz zatu wa lirasu_lihi wa lilmuminina ….. wa la_kin nal muna_fiqina la_ yalamu_n;”

Muhsin Khan, (V.63:08) – “…. But honour, power and glory belong to Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad -SAW), and to the believers, …. but the hypocrites know not.”

And whoever swore by the ‘Izzat (Honour, Power and Glory) of Allah Ta’ala and by His Qualities / attributes, Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) will surely Bless with His Bounty excessively & Lavishly.

Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): The Prophet (May PBUH) said, “A man who will be the last person to enter Paradise will remain between Hell (Fire) and Paradise. He will say, ‘O Lord, turn my face away from the Fire! No, by Your ‘Izzat (Power, Honour and Glory), I will not ask You, for anything else.'”

Also read (V.04:139).

Muhsin Khan (V.04:139) – Those who take disbelievers for Auliya’ (protectors or helpers or friends) instead of believers, do they seek honour, power and glory with them? Verily, then to Allah Ta’ala belongs all honour, power and glory.

Sahih Hadith – 7383. Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (RA): The Prophet (May PBUH) used to say, “I seek refuge  (with You) by Your ‘Izzat (Honour, Power and Glory), and La ilaha illa Anta” (none has the right to be worshipped but You), Who does not die while the jinn and the human beings to die.”
[Sahih Al- Bukhari Vol. 09, Hadith No. 7383, & O.P. 291/92 – it is verified & OK].

This most comprehensive & Unique Compilation of the Ever Glorious Qur’an, has been under taken keeping in mind those, who really (sincerely) wish to recite the Holy Qur’an in its full depth and very earnestly desire to understand Almighty Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) sayings as conveyed for all ‘Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists) through revelations (i.e., Wahi) to Prophet Muhammad (May PBUH). However, for some reasons do consider themselves a little handicapped due to linguistic limitations – hence 2 (Two) Transliteration of Arabic Text is given in English too. This transliteration has been incorporated along with its translation as best as it is humanly possible. Still if there is any inadvertent error then it may kindly be condoned, simply because ‘to err is human’. I, therefore, am praying to Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) to be forgiven for the same as well.

Moreover, it is most humbly requested to one and all to learn Arabic as the same is not that hard if tried / attempted honestly. Also, recital of Holy Qur’an in Arabic is more rewarding for obvious reasons.

The preamble to the Noble Qur’an in this most comprehensive & Unique Compilation starts with most desirable issues that are totally related with the Qur’an in the light / teachings of Qur’an itself so that your curiosity and burning thirst / desire to have considerable insight beforehand is provided in a best possible manner and thereby, reading with thorough understanding and recital of Qur’an, will come from the within and the same is certainly very appreciable in the eyes of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala).

Kindly it may please be noted here that, the above mentioned informations are a must for all of us and hence, this most comprehensive and Unique Compilation of the Ever Glorious Qur’an.

Here, Verse No. (V.02:269) is quoted as under for desirable motivation to all of us and oblige.

Muhsin Khan, (V.02:269) He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. But none remember (will receive admonition) except men of understanding.

Excerpts from the Tafsir Anwar ul Bayan (Vol. 1), and O.P. Nos. 327 to 328 of Mufti Muhammad Aashiq Elahi Muhajir Madani (RA);

 He {i.e., Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala)} gives wisdom to whom He wills….” (V.02:269). Wisdom in this verse refers to things that are well consolidated, whether they be of speech or action. It is stated in “Ruhul Ma’ani” (in Vol. 03 and on Page No. 41), quoting from “Bahrul Muhit”, that there are approximately 29 interpretations of this word, all of which basically refer to the same thing.

Sayyidina Ibn Abbas (RA), Sayyidina Qatada (RA) and others say that it refers to an understanding of the Qur’an. Sayyidina Abu Darda (RA) mentioned that to read and ponder on the Qur’an constitutes practical wisdom. Sayyidina Mujahid (RA) says that it refers to the correct performance of all actions and verbal statements. He also mentioned that it means all knowledge of the Qur’an, religious jurisprudence and those types of knowledge that greatly benefit a person. Sayyidina Ata (RA) interprets it to mean the recognition of Allah Ta’ala, while Sayyidina Abu Uthman (RA) is of the opinion that it refers to a celestial light that allows one to distinguish between good and evil inspirations. Every one of these interpretations boil down to almost the same thing. Therefore, it will be appropriate to say that it refers to all beneficial knowledge as well as legitimate actions and statements.

“… and whomsoever is given wisdom, has indeed received abundant good.” (V.02:269).  This is so because such wisdom augurs well for a person in both worlds. In a narration of Imam Bukhari,
Sayyidina Abdullah bin Ma’sud (RA) reports that the Holy Prophet (May PBUH) said, “Envy is only permitted in case of two persons. One is the person whom Allah Ta’ala has given wealth, and the ability to spend generously from it in every good cause. The other is the person whom Allah Ta’ala had bestowed with wisdom, which he uses to pass correct judgments between two people and teaches the same to others as well.”
[Sahih Al-Bukhari in Vol. 01, Hadith No. 73, and O.P. 99 – it is verified & OK].

“….Only those people take heed and who have understanding.” (V.02:269). Such are the ones who remain far from the darkness of submitting to their carnal desires. They are those whom Allah Ta’ala refers to in the Verse No. 191 of Surah Al-Imran {i.e., (V.03:191)} as mentioned as under.

Muhsin Khan, (V.03:191): Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): “Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted are You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire.

(13) CHAPTER. If Allah (Jalle Jala Luhu) wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion. [The understanding of the Qur’an and As-Sunnah (legal ways) of the Prophet (Muhammad – May PBUH)];

Narrated Mu’awiya (RA) in a Khutba (religious talk): I heard Allah’s Messenger (May PBUH) saying, “If Allah Ta’ala wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion [the understanding of the Qur’an and As-Sunnah (legal ways) of the Prophet (Muhammad – SAW], I am just a distributor, but the grant is from Allah (Azza Wa Jalla). (And remember) that this nation (true Muslims real followers of Islamic Monotheism) will remain obedient to Allah’s Orders [i.e.following strictly Allah’s Book (the Qur’an) and the Prophet’s Sunnah (legal ways)] and they will not be harmed by anyone who will oppose them (going on a different path), till Allah’s Order (Day of Judgment) is established.”
[Sahih Al-Bukhari in Vol. 01, Hadith No. 71, and O.P. 98 – it’s verified & OK].

(15) CHAPTER. Wish to be like the one who has knowledge and Al-Hikmah [wisdom i.e., the knowledge of the Qur’an and the Sunnah (legal ways) of the Prophet (May PBUH).

And ‘Umar (RA) said, “Everyone must acquire sound religious knowledge early before he becomes a chief.” (Abu ‘Abdullah said) The Companions of the Prophet (May PBUH) had studied inspite of the fact that they were old in age.

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud (RA): The Prophet (May PBUH) said, “Do not wish to be like
anyone except in two cases. (The first is) a person, whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously (according to what Allah has ordered in a just and right way); (the second is) the one whom Allah has given Al-Hikmah [wisdom i.e., the knowledge of the Qur’an and the Sunnah (legal ways) of the Prophet – May PBUH] and he acts according to it and teaches it to others.” [See Fath Al-Bari in Vol. I, and O. P. 177].
[Sahih Al-Bukhari in Vol. 01, Hadith No. 73, and O.P. 99 – it’s verified & OK].

Chapter 47; The Virtue of One Who Acts in Accordance with the Qur’an and Teaches it. And the Virtue of One Who learns Wisdom from Fiqh or Other types of Knowledge, then Acts upon
it and Teaches it.

[18941 266 – (815). It was narrated from Salim from his father, that the Prophet (May PBUH) said:
“There is no envy except in two cases: A man to whom Allah gives (causes to learn) the Qur’an and he recites it during the night and during the day, and a man to whom Allah gives wealth, and he spends it during the night and during the day.”
[Sahih Muslim in Vol. 02, Hadith No; [1894] 266 – (815), and O.P. 332 – it’s verified & OK].

[18961 268 – (816). It was narrated that Qais said: “I heard ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud say: The Messenger of Allah (May PBUH) said: ‘There is no cause for envy except in two cases: ‘A man to whom Allah gives wealth and enables him to spend it in support of the truth, and a man to whom Allah gives wisdom and he rules in accordance with it and teaches it.”
[Sahih Muslim in Vol. 02, Hadith No; [1896] 268 – (816), and O.P. 333 – it’s verified & OK].
