Guidance Parts I & II




Sahih Bukhari:

Volume 1, Book 3, Number 73:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud:

The Prophet 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; (the second is) the one whom Allah has given wisdom (the Holy Qur'an) and he acts according to it and teaches it to others." (Fateh-al-Bari page 177 Vol. 1)

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 422:
Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, "When a human being is laid in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their foot steps, two angels come to him and make him sit and ask him: What did you use to say about this man, Muhammad ? He will say: I testify that he is Allah's slave and His Apostle. Then it will be said to him, 'Look at your place in the Hell-Fire. Allah has given you a place in Paradise instead of it.' " The Prophet added, "The dead person will see both his places. But a non-believer or a hypocrite will say to the angels, 'I do not know, but I used to say what the people used to say! It will be said to him, 'Neither did you know nor did you take the guidance (by reciting the Quran).' Then he will be hit with an iron hammer between his two ears, and he will cry and that cry will be heard by whatever approaches him except human beings and jinns."

*From the above-mentioned hadith it is very clear the importance of Qur’an! We should not ignore the Qur’an. After death there is no World again! Only paradise/hell!

Volume 8, Book 73, Number 120:
Narrated Tariq:

'Abdullah said, "The best talk is Allah's Book (Qur'an), and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad."

Volume 1, Book 3, Number 75:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

Once the Prophet embraced me and said, "O Allah! Bestow on him the knowledge of the Book (Qur'an)."

Volume 5, Book 57, Number 100:
Narrated Ibn Abbas:

Once the Prophet embraced me (pressed me to his chest) and said, "O Allah, teach him wisdom (i.e. the understanding of the knowledge of Qur'an)."

“From the above mentioned hadiths, it is very clear that the holy Qur’an should be referred to first before referring to hadiths. We often see or meet people who have more knowledge of hadiths compared to knowledge about the Qur’an. We should change this attitude Inshallah.

54:17. And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition [warning]?

*From the above-mentioned verse of Qur’an it is clear dear all! Where are you standing and where are you going???

Beware of misleading websites & people… if we have knowledge from the Qur’an. Inshallah we will be guided.



17: 9. Surely this Quran guides to that which is most upright and gives good news to the believers who do good that they shall have a great reward.

*From the above verse it is very clear the Qur’an shows the correct way!

2:256. There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right [guided] way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.

*From the above verse it is very clear! We can only be rightly guided if we refer to the Qur’an.

2: 2. This Book, there is no doubt in it, is a GUIDE to those who guard (against evil).
2: 3. Those who believe in the unseen and keep up prayer and spend out of what We [ALLAH] have given them.
2: 4. And who believe in that which has been revealed to you and that which was revealed before you and they are sure of the hereafter.
2: 5. These are on a right course from their Lord and these it is that shall be successful.
2: 6. Surely those who disbelieve, it being alike to them whether you warn them, or do not warn them, will not believe.
2: 7. Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing and there is a covering over their eyes, and there is a great punishment for them.
2: 8. And there are some people who say: We believe in Allah and the last day; and they are not at all believers. [Or they are not mu’min]
2: 9. They desire to deceive Allah and those who believe, and they deceive only themselves and they do not perceive.

2:185. The month of Ramadhan is that in which the Qur’an was revealed, guidance to All mankind and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction; therefore whoever of you is present in the month, he shall fast therein…

*From the above verse again Allah (swt) is calling to [All human being] NOT ANY SUNNI, SHIA, JEWS, MUSLIMS, ETC. If you have the BOOK which shows you the guided path, so it is our duty to search and find out what are our weakness.

29:51. Is it not enough for them that We have revealed to you the Book which is recited to them? Most surely there is mercy in this and a reminder for a people who believe.

*From the above verse we should follow the same message as in sunnah [Muhammad pbuh].

39:18. Those who listen to the word, then follow the best of it; those are they whom Allah has guided, and those it is who are the men of understanding.

10:57. O mankind! there hath come to you a direction from your Lord and a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts, and for those who believe, a guidance and a Mercy.

*Qur’an provides healing for the heart.

2:242. Allah thus makes clear to you His communications [verses] that you may understand.
