Dear Scholar,

i want to clear my understanding on Certain issues i read in the Holy Quran. so i will put my question so that i can be explained.

19:47 [Abraham] said, "Peace will be upon you. I will ask forgiveness for you of my Lord. Indeed, He is ever gracious to me.

9:113 : It is not (fit) for the Prophet and those who believe that they should ask forgiveness for the polytheists, even though they should be near relatives, after it has become clear to them that they are inmates of the flaming fire.

Please Advise - Qur'an Memorization

Submitted by Anonymous on Tue, 08/23/2016 - 10:21

I have a question regarding the memorizing the Quran and forgetting it. I was 11 or 12 years old when i was admitted to Madrsa to memorize Quran by my parents. I was very young to understand what a great responsibility it is to maintain and keep it. I did memorize the complete Quran in 3 and half years, but it was mainly due to the constant pressure from Parents and and harsh environment of madrisa where we were made spend all day as kids and not given any time to play (I felt more lie a Jail) and all on top of that most of the Ustad's used to beat the shit out of kids.

Queries from the Qur'an

1. If the Quran says the earth was created in seven days why do we find evidence to the contrary? 2. Why does the Quran put men a degree above woman? 3. Why does the Quran command us to be peaceful in one verse but then switch its tone to an aggressive one later?

Obligatory Sujood in Menstruation

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 11/08/2015 - 01:45

Assalamu Alaikum,

While in classes for learning Qur'an, is it allowable for a woman, during menstruation, to read/recite the 4 surahs with obligatory sujood (this is with a Sunni teacher with whom sujood is not mandatory)?

This to not make this personal issue obvious and also not to call attention to the fact that I am Shia when doing so might cause ill feelings.

Jazakum Allahu Khairun.

my Question is regarding the Tafseer of the following verse: Shakir 38:44] And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with It and do not break your oath; surely We found him patient; most excellent the servant! Surely he was frequent m returning (to Allah). [Pooya/Ali Commentary 38:44]
