The Holy Qur’an states:
Muhammad (SAW) is not the father of any man amongst you, but he is the Prophet of Allah and khatam-al-nabiyyīn. (Q 33:40)
Kindly explain if he is not the father of any male child or man, then how could we justify the birth of His son who died in infancy? Your guidance in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

My question is regarding the following verse of the Qur’an:
What is the significance of two easts and two wests as indicated in Surah al-Rahman?
When Allāh decided to create Adam, how were angels able to tell that humans will commit “fasād fī al-arḍ”. Moreover Satan asked for respite till Day of Judgment. How was he able to know about that there would be a Day of Judgment?
In reference to Surah Al-Baqrah verse 30, how did the angels predict that the proposed khalifah i.e. the human beings will shed blood on the earth; they are not possessed with the knowledge of the unseen ilm al-ghaib?
Guide me a single book in relation to history that is least unbiased and give a proper view of all the sects. Secondly, what is your opinion about books of Tabari and Ibn e Khuldun? My second question is that it is said very often that there are more than three hundred narratives in favor or praise of Hazrat Ali but I have studied Quran according to my capacity which does not show anything like…
The verse 23 of Surah al-Baqarah (2) challenges man to create verse like the Holy Qur'an. Is it, God forbid, not possible for any human being to produce a false copy of the Holy Qur'an?
What is the concept of seven heavens?
Doesn’tQ. 5:101 subtly teach us that we need to know what was happening in the Prophet’s time while pondering over the Quran? It says: If you ask about them during the time the Qur’ān is being revealed these will be shown to you. (5:101) I ask this because it puts the condition of "while Qur’an is being revealed, they will be made manifest to you". So am I right in concluding that though we need…
1) In Ayah 26 of Surah al-Noor, God says:
I have the following questions regarding the creation of Adam and Eve that is mentioned in Surah al-Baqarah. What does the word ‘names’ occurring in the 2:30 refer to? God asked both the angels and Adam to name those things whereas He hadn’t taught the angels. How could the angels know the ‘names’ since they were kept in darkness? Testing angels implies that, like human beings, they too have freedom of argument, choice, and action.…
How can you be so sure from the Holy Quran that Hazrat Isa (sws) has indeed passed away and died a natural death? What is meant by "bul rafa'ah Allahu 'ilayhi "? Please clarify that how can you reject all the ahadith concerning the coming of Imam Mahdi? How can (or will He) Jesus Christ (sws) return after death? Qadianis say that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani came to settle the issue of the contradictory Ahadith…
A verse from Surah al-Maidah reads: "Those who believe (in the Qur’ān), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve." I heard a religious scholar saying that whoever does not follow the Shariah of Muhammad (sws) will be thrown into Hell. His good deeds will be of no avail…
Please elaborate in the light of reliable ahādith the following issues:
I wanted to understand why God Almighty has said that people who deal in usury are at war with God and his Prophet (pbuh)? Why God and his Prophet (pbuh) are not at war with rapists, murderers, hypocrites and other culprits? Why interest is so heinous a crime compared to other misdeeds?
Please explain the following verse of the Holy Qur’an: Call on your Lord humbly and secretly; surely He does not love those who exceed limits. (7:54-5)
Does the verse: "And those who strive in Our (cause),- We will certainly guide them to our Paths" (Q 29:69) exclusively address the prophetic Companions or does it generally address all mankind?
Please explain the meaning of the following verse in detail:-
" Soon I will show them my signs in the furthest region of the earth and within themselves, till they believe this is the truth".
Please explain the meaning and signification of the word maghfirah occurring in 2:263.
I would like to inquire if you know any relations between the Pharaoh mentioned in the Holy Qur’an during Prophet Moses' time and the Pharaohs mentioned in the Historical data such as Tutenkhamon or Amenhotep? Are they in anyway related to one another historically? If they are not related, do you have any idea in which year was the existence of the Pharaoh mentioned in the Holy Al-Qur’an during Prophet Moses' time?
Please explain in depth what is the real implication of the Arabic word ‘Zulm’ in the Holy Qur’an. A barrister friend of mine wants to comprehend ‘Zulm’ particularly in the Qur’anic context in sayings like Allah does not guide the ‘Zalimun’.
I have a question in my mind that I have not been able to figure out. A verse of the Holy Quran reads:
Say: "Call upon Allah, or call upon Rahman: by whatever name ye call upon Him, (it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Neither speak thy Prayer aloud, nor speak it in a low tone, but seek a middle course between." (Al Isra' 17:110)
What is the verse referring to and…
Q 31:34 reads:
Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).
Now we know some of these things.…
What is meant by ‘Ma‘ishatan Danka’ in the verse 20:124?
What is the Quranic definition of kafir? Does the Qur’an call the People of the Book kafirs? Does the word kafir means one who refuses/disbelieves or is it a Quranic term used in a specific meaning?
The initial verses of Surah al-Dhariyat do not name angels, winds or any other thing but use only adjectives. Howcome some scholars came to translate it as Angles while others take it to refer to winds?
Verse 9:28 from the Qur'an reads:
According to the…
What is the confluence of Qur’an and science? For example again and again the Qur’an claims the heart to be the seat of decisions, whilst science has held the brain is responsible. Likewise, the Qur’an and Hadith refer to the seven heavens, whilst scientific proof contradicts it? Please elaborate.
I have seen your Youtube lecture regarding fine arts which included the poetry. Do you have any article specifically dealing with poetry or addressing / explaining the Qur’anic verse in surah 26 regarding y poets and how to deal this in our times?
Javed Aḥmad Ghamidi one’s said, during our chat, that Ibrahim (sws) was told by God not to pray for your father as he is a rejecter. But it appears that in Sūrah Ibrahim verse 41, the Prophet Ibrahim, again asks God to forgive his parents. To me the time period of latter is later than the first. Can you explain this please? Also kindly give me the reference of the sūrah where God stops Ibrahim…
What lessons should we derive from the story Of Moses and the wise man (supposed to be Khidr) in Surah Kahaf?
In surah Kahf, there is a parenthetical clause that refers to the Prophet (sws) saying "Inshā Allah". Can you clarify the statement in the overall context of the surah?
Some people often hold that Taboot-e-Sakina, mentioned in the Qur’an (Q 2: 248), contained belongings of the Prophets. It was a symbol of blessings of God and Barakah. The Israelites used to get judgments from it during disputes. It is held that this example proves the fact that we can use particular things or persons as waseela (intermediary/intercessor) to approach God. They argue if things like amama (turban) and the Ark belonging to the Prophets…
I heard Mr. Ghamidi on TV making a comparison between the testimony of a woman and the testimony of a man. I was quite impressed and actually convinced by his arguments that the witness of a woman is equal to the witness of a man in an Islamic Court. However, I recently came across the following Hadith and it has shaken me and created some doubts. The ḥadīth reads: Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: Once Allah\'s…
Many exegetes interpret the Qur'ānic verses scientifically. You claim that the Holy Qur'an is not a book of science. This is a book of religious guidance and we should study specifically with this point of view. What I want to know is that why should not we explain the verses scientifically that discuss scientific matters.
Did the Prophet (sws) ever remain under a magical spell?
And what about the seven heavens stated in the Qur’an?
Can we recite the supplication of “Āyat al-Kursī” (the Throne Verse) to achieve our goals? What is the best time to recite it? What is its importance according to Ḥadīth?
My friend has asked me a question regarding Sūrah Yasīn verse 40. Abdullah Yusuf Ali translates it as follows:
It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night
outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to
We have two issues:
1. The moon "catches up" to the sun when there is an eclipse.
2. The sun does not have an orbit.
First, I don't believe that…
When Solomon (sws) asked his followers ‘who would bring the throne of Bilqis?’ An ‘Ifrit told him he will bring it before he rises from his place. However, a human being brought it to him in the blink of an eye. Will you please give me details on how the man did this?
Some people say that animals cannot think. That is their nature. But when you study Surah al-Namal (27) about the conversation of the Prophet Solomon (sws) with Hud Hud about Bilquees, the polytheist queen, and about the conversations of ants you would definitely think that animals have ability to think and pray and know about Allah.
I would also like to know about the concept of woman’s creation from man’s rib.
I read a passage in the Holy Qur’an recently which left me in confusion. When Satan disobeyed God, he was cast out of heaven. At that time, he says that he would misguide men on earth till the day of eternity. The way I understand it, Adam had not yet disobeyed God and man was still a part of heaven. How could Satan say that he would misguide men on earth when God has not…
I want to understand the widsom behind the divine command to the angels to prostrate themselves before Adam. We hear that Iblees was not one of them. Can you please help me?
