Ruling on teaching Qur’aan to a non-Muslim
My question is i have a close friend, who is intending to convert after she finishes her studies, she is very interested in Islam, and I\’ve been teaching her verses such as Al-fatiha and Ayat Al-Kursi off by heart, and she has very willingly learnt them off by heart, is this permissable though because at the moment she is not muslim yet?
Praise be to Allaah.
There is nothing wrong with teaching Qur’aan to a non-Muslim if there is the hope that he will become Muslim and benefit from this teaching.
Al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
Our companions said: The kaafir should not be prevented from listening to the Qur’aan but he should be prevented from touching the Mushaf. But is it permissible to teach him Qur’aan? That depends. If there is no hope that he will become Muslim, it is not permissible, but if there is the hope that he will become Muslim, it is permitted according to the sounder opinion; this was the definitive view of al-Qaadi Husayn, and was regarded as more correct by al-Baghawi and others. End quote.
Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
This is an issue concerning which the early generation differed. Maalik did not allow teaching Qur’aan to a kaafir; Abu Haneefah gave a concession allowing it; and the view of al-Shaafa‘i differed. What seems to be the correct view is that there should be a differentiation between the one who it is hoped will become Muslim and there is certainty that he is not learning it in order to criticize it, and the one who it is certain it will have no positive impact on him or it is thought likely that this will enable him to attack Islam. And Allah knows best. A differentiation should also be made between teaching a little of it or a lot. End quote.
Fath al-Baari, 6/107
Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And if anyone of the Mushrikoon (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allaah) seeks your protection then grant him protection so that he may hear the Word of Allaah (the Qur’aan) and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not”
Al-Shawkaani (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
What is meant is that if any of the mushrikeen whom you are commanded to fight seeks your protection, then give him protection, i.e., protect him and keep him safe so that he can hear the Word of Allah from you and ponder it properly and understand the truth to which you are calling him. Then escort him to a place of safety, i.e., a place where he will be safe after hearing the word of Allah if he does not become Muslim. End quote.
Fath al-Qadeer, 2/491.
Islam does not approve of a relationship and meetings between a young man and a girl that are outside the framework of marriage. So you have to repent to Allah from what you are doing. If you hope that this girl will become Muslim, then our advice to you is that you should marry her so that you can help her to become Muslim, and a reward like hers will also be written for you.
We ask Allah to guide and help you.
And Allah knows best.

Washington – Priest Gerald Pointer (48) left in a house in Seattle (U.S. climb) from a stallion. The man of God suffered while a Dickdarmriss, died of the consequences. The priest left the Bestiality of truck driver James Tait (54 films). The man now facing $ 5,000 fine. Bestiality is not prohibited in Washington State
Allah (SWT) ordained that plants, people and animals receive their food from what plants produce in their green factories.
These green factories are built up by the plant at the beginning of its growth and are called by botanists “Chloroplasts” which contain the chlorophyll which the Qur’an calls “Al-Khadir” (green substance),
where the plant utilizes the light energy and changes it into chemical energy leading ultimately to the production of various kinds of grain, fruit and other parts of vegetation that we see in gardens and fields.
The Qur’an draws our attention to these facts in the Saying of Allah (SWT): (It is He who sends down water (rain) from the sky. With it We produce vegetation of all kinds from which (water or plants) We produce green substance (Khadir), out of which We produce grain in clusters. And out of date-palms, from their spathes come forth clusters of dates hanging low and near, and (We produce) gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates, each similar (in leaves or shape), yet different (in fruit and taste). Look at (and think over) their fruits when they begin to bear fruit, and (look at) the ripeness thereof. Behold! In these things there are Signs for people who believe.) (VI: 99)
Thus, these green factories appear in the plant at the beginning of its growth. The plant is produced from its seed or part of its body by means of water. Allah (SWT) sends rain down from the sky to produce with it vegetation of all kinds, and from the plant He produces these green factories that produce the substances necessary to produce grain, fruit and all the other parts of the plant.
Yet this fact was not uncovered to people till 1600 AD, after 300 years of research, when botanists carried out numerous researches and experiments in the field of botanical physiology to understand the process of photosynthesis.
In 1804 AD, De Saussure proclaimed that there are two types of gas exchange: one type takes place in the light, the other in the dark, and that it is the green parts of the plant that absorb CO2 and release O2 in the presence of light. Then there proceeded continuous discoveries in this field.
In 1942 AD Meyer said that the original source of energy used by plants and animals is the sun and that the light energy absorbed by plants is converted into chemical energy through photosynthesis.
961 AD Glass said that the most significant compounds involved in the process of converting the light energy into chemical energy in plants are the pigments found inside the chloroplasts or “pigment carriers”.
The plant starts photosynthesis by means of these components and organelles. All this results in producing carbohydrates which are involved in complex biological processes that produce the raw material for the cellular wall, amino acids, proteins, lipids, hormones, pigments, …etc. These substances are the essential matter to make all the plant parts which people and animals feed on.
Aspects of the miracle:
Scholarly researchers in the field of plant physiology have discovered that the green substance (the chloroplasts) absorbs the light energy and converts it into chemical energy to produce various fruits. This discovery was realized after continuous studies and various experiments that lasted for three centuries, up to the twentieth century.
This process of producing grain, fruits and trees was an unknown secret hidden deep in the thycloids of the chloroplasts that cannot be seen with the naked eye and which have been known by botanists only after a prolonged series of continuous researches and studies carried out by scholars over several centuries.
And only after methods of precise scientific investigation were available that they ultimately declared that in the plant there is a green substance and that it is this substance that produces carbohydrates that constitute the basic matter for producing all types of fruit, tree and vegetation.
This is what the Holy Qur’an decided fourteen centuries ago and was conveyed by an illiterate Prophet who lived in a desert environment among an illiterate nation at a time when no equipment of scientific research were available.
The Verse of the Holy Qur’an could have done without mentioning the “green substance” and nobody would have objected to that, except one that knew the fundamental role of that substance. However, its mention implies that the one who mentions it knows well its main role in the production of grain, fruit and all tree and vegetation. How great it is of the Holy Qur’an to mention the truth and guide people on the road to find out the secret, by saying: (Look at (and think over) their fruits when they begin to bear fruit and (look at) the ripeness thereof.) It draws the attention to the beginning of the fruit formation and its relation with ripeness whereupon no more fruits are produced because the leaves of some plants turn yellow and their cells die.
Who, then, informed Muhammad (Peace be upon him) of this fact? Muhammad, the illiterate Prophet, who lived in an illiterate culture, at a time when the simplest instruments were not available, let alone possessing the advanced instruments and research centers and laboratories in the field of plant physiology that are required to discover these facts.
The existence of this precise botanical information in the Qur’an proves that it is from Allah, Who says: (But Allah bears witness to that which He has sent down to you. He has sent it down with His Knowledge, and the angles bear witness, and Allah is sufficient as a witness.) (IV: 166)

17- Solar apex
God says in the Holy Quran
“And the sun runs to its resting place. That is the decree of the Almighty, the All-Knowing. ”
(The Qur’an, 37:38)
These facts communicated in the Qur’an have been discovered by astronomical observations in our age. According to the calculations of experts on astronomy, the Sun is traveling at the enormous speed of 720,000 kilometers an hour in the direction of the star Vega in a particular orbit called the Solar Apex. This means that the sun travels roughly 17,280,000 kilometers a day. Along with the Sun, and all planets and satellites within the gravitational system of the Sun also travel the same distance. In addition, all the stars in the universe are in a similar planned motion.
What is the definition of the Solar apex according to wikipedia
The solar apex, or the Apex of the Sun’s Way, refers to the direction that the Sun travels with respect to the Local Standard of Rest
18 – The Returning Sky
The verse 11 of Sura Tarik in the Qur’an, refers to the “returning” function of the sky.
“By Heaven with its cyclical systems.”
(The Qur’an, 86:11)
This word interpreted as “cyclical” in Qur’an translations also has meanings of “sending back” or “returning”.
As known, the atmosphere surrounding the Earth consists of many layers. Each layer serves an important purpose for the benefit of life. Research has revealed that these layers have the function of turning the materials or rays they are exposed to back into space or back down to the Earth. Now let us examine with a few examples of this “recycling” function of the layers encircling the Earth.
The troposphere, 13 to 15 kilometers above the Earth, enables water vapor rising from the surface of the Earth to be condensed and turn back as rain.
The ozone layer, at an altitude of 25 kilometers, reflects harmful radiation and ultraviolet light coming from space and turns both back into space.
The ionosphere, reflects radio waves broadcast from the Earth back down to different parts of the world, just like a passive communications satellite, and thus makes wireless communication, radio, and television broadcasting possible over long distances.
The magnetosphere layer turns the harmful radioactive particles emitted by the Sun and other stars back into space before they reach the Earth.
The fact that this property of the atmosphere’s layers, that was onlt demonstrated in the recent past was announced centuries ago in the Qur’an, once again demonstrates that the Qur’an is the word of God.
19 – Resevation of Pharoah’s Body
The Quran states pharaoh was drowned in the Red Sea while chasing after Moses and Allah said He would preserve Pharaoh dead body as a sign for the future. Dr. Maurice Bucaille in his book*1*, “Bible, Quran and Science” makes it clear this has happened and the very person of Pharaoh has been discovered in Egypt and is now on display for all to see.
This event took place thousands of years before Muhammad (peace be upon him) and it came true in the last few decades, many centuries after his death.
So,how did the prophet know this info for more 1400 years old,if he is not a prophet from the well-kowing Allah??!!
The Pharaoh body was saved although the Bible (Torah) says, ‘Pharaoh was drowned in the Red Sea while chasing Moses and his companions’
Bible: “And the waters returned, and covered the Chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.” (Exodus, 14:28)
Amazingly, when this was all the world knew about the drowning of Pharaoh, the Quran produced this astounding revelation: “We shall save you in your dead body this day, so that you may become a sign to all posterity.” (Koran: 10:92)

20 – water cycle
The Qur’an told us in a scientific way about all related facts to the water cycle and descending of rains. Let us look attentively at these holy verses which speak about every part of the water cycle.
The sun is the driver of the aquatic cycle, God says :( And we have made (therein) a shining lamp (sun).)(Sûrat An-Naba’-verse13). Sun spreads the necessary heat and light to evaporate water and to form winds.
Winds are the second driver of the aquatic cycle, God says :( And We send the winds fertilizing (to fill heavily the clouds with water), then cause the water (rain) to descend from the sky, and We give it to you to drink, and it is not you who are the owners of its stores [i.e. to give water to whom you like or to withhold it from whom you like].)(Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 22).
Water which descends from the clouds is stored in the ground for hundreds of years without being spoiled ,taking into consideration that anyone may store the water for only couple of days it will spoil; God says:( it is not you who are the owners of its stores) ( Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 22).
After evaporation of water it condenses in the sky in form of clouds, then winds fertilize the clouds, God says :( And we send the winds fertilizing) (Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 22).
The Qur’an told us about the high heavy clouds which are responsible for rains and ice, God says: (See you not that Allah drives the clouds gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap of layers, and you see the rain comes forth from between them; and He sends down from the sky hail (like) mountains, (or there are in the heaven mountains of hail from where He sends down hail), and strikes therewith whom He wills, and averts it from whom He wills. The vivid f lash of its (clouds) lightning nearly blinds the sight)(Sûrat An-Nûr-verse43)
The water” which descends” is stored inside the ground in form of sweet springs to enable life to continue, God says: (See you not that Allah sends down water (rain) from the sky, and causes it to penetrate the earth, (and then makes it to spring up) as water-springs, and afterward thereby produces crops of different colors, and afterward they wither and you see them turn yellow; then He makes them dry and broken pieces. Verily, in this is a Reminder for men of understanding.)(Sûrat Az-Zumar-verse21). If these crops are not transferred to the yellow to be dry and broken pieces and if it remained Green, the cycle of plant wouldn’t be renewed and we wouldn’t get benefit from those broken pieces which transfer to be oil over hundreds of yeas.
Scientists say that all of these operations are according to very organized and constant physical laws, God says: (And we sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure and we gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, we are Able to take it away.)(Sûrat Al-Mu’minûn-verse18). Look at the word “in due” which refers to discipline and arrangement.
The most important part in this cycle, what is happening at the area which is called the mouth (where rivers flow in seas), Qur’an says: (And it is He who has let free the two seas (kinds of water): this is palatable and sweet, and that is salt and bitter; and He has set a barrier and a complete partition between them.)(Sûrat Al-Furqân-verse 53) .Unless Rivers are flowing in seas, those seas would be drought. That what happened in the Aral Sea which was supplying by two rivers and because of a human interruption by stopping that supplying, the sea became empty.
Scientists say that mountains have a vital role in the descending of rains, forming the clouds and in water purification. God says: (And have placed therein firm, and tall mountains, and have given you to drink sweet water?)(Sûrat Al-Mursalât- verse 27).In this verse a clear link between the mountains and the sweet water.
These verses were descended 1400 year ago, with a precise de**(Part of text is lost , sorry)ion for the water cycle which was discovered 100 years ago! Isn’t this a proof that the Qur’an is the book of Allah?

15- The seas sitting on bed of fire
God says in the Holy Quran
(And seas sitting on bed of fire (6)) (Surah 52: 6)
In the bottom of the sea there is fissures and crust cracks where melted
lave flows through from underneath the ground.
The modern science discover these cracks where melted lave flow into the water for hundreds of meters . This appears as if the sea is being on fire . this fact is known to us by Quran when God Almighty swear by sea being on fire
God says in the Holy Quran ” I swear] by Heaven and the Tariq ( The Knocker ) ! And what will convey to you what the Tariq is? The Star Piercing [the darkness]! (Qur’an, 86:1-3) “
God in the above mentioned verse , though He needn’t swear , Did swear by that star.when God swears , he swears by something great and also what He swear on is assuredly great.
The word ( Tarek and the word Al-thakeb ) are two different Arabic words that are used in the above-mentioned verse to describe the Pulsar , the word Altarek means in English ” the Knocker or that beats quickly and the word ” Al-thakeb” means ” piercing “, these two characteristics ( knocker and piercing ) are one of the most specific features of pulsar .
Characteristics of the celestial object mentioned in (Qur’an, 86:1-3) are:
1- It pulsates (knocks) 2- It is a star 3- It penetrates, pierces, drills
These pulsars , though originate in massive explosion being encompassed with dense matter , they strikingly begin to shine with strong light and radiation that pierce every celestial body , the Quranic word ” Thakeb ” gives the two meanings . Scientists use many words to describe these pulsars but the Holy Quran use just two words that imply all the characteristics of the pulsar .
Is their really a stars that are Piercing and make Knocking Sounds
The Scientific Proofs
1- Pulsars do make Knocking Sounds
2- Pulsars are Piercing
Pulsars are the original gamma-ray astronomy point sources
A pulsar is a neutron star which emits beams of radiation that sweep through the earth’s line of sight. Like a black hole , it is an endpoint to stellar evolution
