Many of us are very much popular with the Gems extraction from the Quran. This grateful thing can be made possible by only the people who have lot of experience on the Quran and tafsir session. These tafsirs are very much powerful and strong and in some ways are unrivaled. And for this Gems extraction from the holy Quran you need to do a great research and analysis on this holy book.

In every religion, there are always one or two foundations on which beliefs and values are based on. Such is the same with the Muslims who can be regarded as the descendants of Prophet Muhammad. Thus, they ensure that their everyday life is guided by Sunnah as they tend to see it as the perfect bench mark to follow. Continue Reading →
In the west, many people have the wrong concept that women of the east or those following the religion Islam have no rights. They say that most women are abused in this region and suffer a lot. They say that most Muslim women are uneducated; when they are pregnant, they do all heavy chores and suffer harsh treatment from their dominant husbands. Continue Reading →
So I’ve been reading (and there is always room for improvement of course) in an Arabic & English Quran since I last posted.
- Abrar: Obedient believers. (Last Juz, maybe surah Inshiqaq)
- Tasneem : Water in Paradise that falls from heights. (Last Juz)
- LuLu: Pearl. For girls. (Surah Ar Rahman)
- Marjaan: Coral. For girls. (Surah Ar Rahman. The ayah goes “lu’lu’ wal marjaan’ so these could be the name of twin girls maybe)
- Bayaan: Eloquent demonstration. For both boys and girls, but it is more popular for girls. (Surah Ar Rahman.)
- Bayyinah: Truth that is demonstrated eloquently, Allah uses this adjective to describe the Quran. It is derived from the same root as the previous name. For girls only. (Last Juz)
- Illiyeen: The noble book that contains the deeds of righteous people on the Day of Judgement. For females. You could call her Lily for short (Last Juz.)
- Shams: The Sun. For boys. Can be made feminine name by saying Shamsah.(All over the Quran)
- Nur: Light. For girls. (as in sunlight). (Many places in the Quran)
- Kareem: Generous. (Many places in the Quran)
- Naeem: Bountiful. For boys. (Last juz, Mutafifeen)
- Majeed : One who has greatness and valor. For boys only, its feminine form is Majeedah. (Last juz, Buruj)
- Salsabil: It’s the name of fountain in Paradise. For girls. (Insaan.)
- Raadiyah: Someone who is content. For girls only. (Last juz, Gaashiya.)
- Raadhi: Someone who is content, for boys.
I’d love it if others could add to the list. I’d like to compile a long list of names some day and pass them out to friends that are pregnant.
“One young woman was slapped for putting her foot on a verse.” Maybe a new exhibit needs to be organized, in which Infidels of all races, creeds and colors put their feet on Qur’an verses like 2:63-66 (Jews turned into apes and pigs); 2:191 (kill the Infidels wherever you find them); 4:34 (beat disobedient women); 4:89 (kill the apostates wherever you find them); 5:59-60 (Jews as apes and pigs again); 7:166 (Jews as apes and pigs yet again); 8:39 (fight until the whole world submits to Islamic law); 9:5 (kill the Infidels wherever you find them again); 9:29 (fight the Jews and Christians until they submit and pay jizya); 47:4 (behead the Infidels); etc.
The contortions of Islamic supremacists as they attempt to explain that my characterizations of the verses above are inaccurate are often imaginative and entertaining, but the plain unavoidable fact remains: Muslims worldwide prove on a daily basis that I have not misrepresented those verses. They prove it by acting on their plain meaning.
“Koran art exhibit pulled in France after near riot,” from AFP, October 4 (thanks to Twostellas):
A Moroccan artist on Wednesday suspended his exhibit in a French arts festival after his projection of Koranic verses onto a bridge almost sparked a riot when people trod on them.Mounir Fatmi said he was putting his work on hold until the exhibit could be shown properly — without the chance of people walking on the verses — at the “Printemps de Septembre” art festival in the southwestern city of Toulouse.
The exhibit was only meant to be shown at the weekend, with measures taken to ensure no one could set their feet on the ground as the verses from the Muslim holy book and other images were projected there.
But on Tuesday evening, with no preventative measures in place, the video was projected onto the busy bridge and quickly attracted the attention of locals who gathered to try and stop people walking over the verses.
Tensions rose when the demonstrators called in young people from the city’s housing projects to help them, and erected barriers to keep pedestrians away.
One young woman was slapped for putting her foot on a verse.
Police sent in a riot squad but the situation was peacefully resolved — and the demonstrators dispersed — after an imam appeared on the scene and called for calm.
Relations between the French state and a Muslim community that has its roots in former colonies Algeria and Morocco have been strained in recent years by a string of controversies pitting their faith against France’s secular tradition.
Tensions were heightened last month after a French satirical weekly published cartoons of a naked Prophet Muhammad.
Artist Fatmi denied he had sought to provoke with the art work and said Tuesday’s incident was the result of a misunderstanding.
“(As) the right conditions for displaying my work were not in place, and this damages… its ability to be understood, I prefer to suspend it,” he said.
