Quran, Imam Khamenei

Carlyle wasn't Muslim, but he recognized truths within Qur'an: Ayatollah Khamenei

There are people of knowledge and understanding who have acknowledged in their books that they are humble before the Quran; there is a great eloquent Christian poet and author who lived close to our era called Shibli Shumayyi; he might have had materialistic inclinations, I do not remember his traits; but the same poet has a long ballade on Quran and our prophet where he says in one verse that: Although I do not believe in his religion, I cannot deny or talk blasphemously about the strong verses of the Quran. He is a Christian Arab. He does not believe in the Quran and based on what we apparently know, he has not accepted Islam. The same impurities or things that block one’s proper movement towards submission and faith might have blocked him too or he might have secretly submitted and we are not aware of it. Any ways, he says that he cannot deny the Truth of the Quran.

Thus why does he, after 14 centuries since the revelation of the Quran, make such an acknowledgement?  Because he is an expert in eloquency, and a wise man and has a command of the issue; thus when he looks at the Quran, he realizes how important this book is.  Or the famous British Thomas Carlyle who lived in the 19th and early 20th century has a book about the Quran where he talks about the truth of the Quran in details. Of course he is not an expert on eloquency and probably -like many of us- he did not know much about and may have not understood Quran’s rhetoric and the beauty of its language, but he somehow understood the concepts and notions of the Quran.

He is a non-Muslim, or Christian but since he is a man of knowledge and understanding, when he looks at the truths of Quran and the stronghold of the verses of this book, he understands that these truths are not from the limited human mind and are hence undeniable. This is the everlasting miracle of the Quran and the eternality of the miracle of the Quran.

Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of Islamic Revolution of Iran, Speech delivered on May 06, 1992.

Quran, Imam Khamenei

Imam Khamenei: Recite at least 10 verses of Quran a day

Familiarity with the Holy Quran strengthens faith and increases reliance on God

We should avoid distancing ourselves from the Quran. We should always maintain a relationship and a friendship with the Quran. Some narrations recommend that we read at least 50 verses from the Quran a day; this is one benchmark. If you can’t do that, read at least ten verses every day. Don’t say that you read Surah Al-Fatiha and another surah in every rak’a of your daily prayers and that makes ten verses. No. In addition to what you recite in your daily prayers, whether the obligatory prayers or the recommended ones, open the Quran, sit attentively and read ten, twenty, fifty or a hundred verses. September 13, 2007

Quran, Ayatollah Dastgheib

A proof of the existence of the Day of Judgment: Islam's view

The concept of resurrection is accepted after one uses this faculty of thought. Is it possible for one to create this amazing body without a purpose?

What is all this wisdom and knowledge that has been given to man for? Was man created to live on earth for a couple of days, eat, sleep, produce babies, satisfy his desires and die? This would be pointless. The Qurān says:

“Did you think that we created you in vain and that you will not return to us?”

Quran, Ayatollah Dastgheib

About what does Allah swear 14 times in the Holy Quran?

Allah Swears 14 Times About The Importance Of Purifying One’s Self

Purifying one's self is freeing one's self of his evil desires. No subject has been emphasized as much as this in the Holy Qurān. Allah, in Surah Shams, swears 14 times that those who are pious will receive bliss. Allah swears by 14 grand objects that he created that only those who purify themselves will reach salvation. He would be successful in this world and the next. Woe be to the one who did not work on himself, who followed his carnal desires to such a point that it is now impossible to improve himself.

Quran, Ayatollah Bahjat

Striving to study the Qur'an and acting upon it

Learning, teaching, reciting, and acting upon the Qur’an


We have the responsibility of striving to learn, teach, recite, and act upon the Qur’an. However, whilst we place the Qur’an upon our heads on the nights of vigil [i.e. the Nights of Power], in practice, we step upon the verses of hijab, backbiting, lying and the verses, "Woe to the defrauders,"[Surah al-Mutaffifeen (83): 1] "Do not speak to your parents in an ill-tempered manner,"[Surah al-Israa (17): 23] and "Do not walk exultantly on the earth."[Surah al-Israa (17): 37]
