Al Furqan


I was looking for a letter I wrote to one of the judges for Br. Ahmed Abu Ali’s case and I found it Alhumdulillah :). I read it over and now I seriously doubt that he read my letter at all, or anyone’s for that matter, because if he had, there’s no way it could not have touched him or made him think twice…at least a little bit. Khair, may Allah hasten Br. Ahmed’s release. Ameen. Here’s one of his really old recitations, gets me every time. The last few ayaat of Surah Al Furqan are full of lessons SubhanAllah.

Blessed is He Who made Constellations in the skies, and placed therein a Lamp and a Moon giving light; (61)
And it is He Who made the Night and the Day to follow each other: for such as have the will to celebrate His praises or to show their gratitude. (62)
And the servants of (Allah) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say “Peace!” (63)
Those who spend the night in adoration of their Lord prostrate and standing; (64)
Those who say “Our Lord! avert from us the Wrath of Hell, for its Wrath is indeed an affliction grievous― (65)
“Evil indeed is it as an abode, and as a place to rest in”; (66)
Those who, when they spend, are not extravagant and not niggardly, but hold a just (balance) between those (extremes); (67)
Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred, except for just cause, not commit fornication― and any that does this (not only) meets punishment (68)
(But) the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to him, and he will dwell therein in ignominy― (69)
Unless he repents, believes, and works righteous deeds, for Allah will change the evil of such persons into good and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (70)
And whoever repents and does good has truly turned to Allah with an (acceptable) conversion― (71)
Those who witness no falsehood and, if they pass by futility, they pass by it with honourable (avoidance); (72)
Those who, when they are admonished with the Signs of their Lord, droop not down at them as if they were deaf or blind: (73)
And those who pray “Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous.” (74)
Those are the ones who will be rewarded with the highest place in heaven because of their patient constancy; therein shall they be met with salutations and peace (75)
Dwelling therein how beautiful an abode and place of rest! (76)
Say (to the rejecters): “My Lord is not uneasy because of you if ye call not on Him but ye have indeed rejected (Him) and soon will come the inevitable (punishment)!” (77)

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ الْهَمِّ وَالْحُزْنِ وَالْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ وَضَلَعِ الدَّيْنِ وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ
O Allah, I take refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being overpowered by men.

-Fi Amanillah-

  1. “May Allah hasten his release.” Ameen! I was just re-reading about his case, and it’s just really sad how he was convicted. :(

    But beautiful recitation! Jazakillah khair for sharing.

  2. Wiyyaki.

    The details of his case are so unrealistic and staged that it’s almost laughable. Anyone in their sane mind could point out all the fabrication.
    It’s so sad to think that such beautiful voice can’t be heard :( He was a huge asset to our community.
