Qur’anic Hearts

When I was in Memorizing School my Qur’an was drenched in error-marks. So the relationship with my Qur’an was very technical. So…

AFTER I started my Q54A17 project, the Qur’an became incredibly real and relevant to me. And once the whole technicality aspect was removed, I could now focus on the beauty of the Qur’an. I started drawing these hearts on the Ayahs I found incredibly beautiful.

Note: Most of the ayahs in my Qur’an don’t have hearts next to them. THIS IS NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT BEAUTIFUL OR RELEVANT TO ME. It’s because I am a stupid little kid, and have not yet figured out the full beauty of each ayah. I do however humbly believe that EVERY SINGLE AYAH IS HEART-WORTHY! And it’s my life goal to figure the reasons why.

Dua: I hope I get into Heaven, so Allah can directly tell me what I missed. 😀 Ameen.

ANYWAYS here are some of my hearts…

  • يهدي من يشاء الى صراط مستقيم 10:25

    …يهدي من يشاء الى صراط مستقيم

    The word “مَن” in Arabic means “the one/Whomsoever/Who”. This word could either be A.) The Doer. For example: “Whomsoever wants.” & B.) The Object. For example: “I want Whomsoever.”

    And يشأ is a verb that loosely means, “To Want”.

    Let’s read this ayah closely. Notice how radically the ayah’s meaning is changed just by changing the interpretation of how “مَن” is being used.

    First: “Allah invites to the Abode of Peace, and He guides whomsoever HE wants to the straight path.”

    But it could also easily mean: “Allah invites to the Abode of Peace, and He guides WHOMSOEVER wants to the straight path.”

    Thus we do what we always do with multiple layers of meaning, we blend them together.

  • قال فعلتها اذا 26:20

    Accept what happened to you. Don’t fear what might have been.

    Your past does not define you. Your future does.

    We need to learn to forgive ourselves before we do anything else. This is why we say AstagfirUllah multiple times after prayer, even though only one sincere “I’m sorry” is enough for Allah to forgive everything. We do it so we can forgive ourselves.

    Don’t just forget your past. Accept it, Forgive it and Learn from it.
    وذكرهم بأيام الله

    AND MOST OF ALL, NEVER EVER LET ANYBODY STOP YOU FROM GROWING AS A PERSON DUE TO YOUR PAST. NOT EVEN YOURSELF!

    You are in no way obligated to be who you were five minutes ago.

  • المجادلة 58

    Here is a special heart for the entire surah. Why?

    Because a woman spoke up for her rights in a society were women’s right were not taken seriously. Allah showed the seriousness by:

    A.) Referring to her directly in the first verse.
    B.) Making it the only surah in the Qur’an that has the name “Allah” in every single one of it’s ayaat.

    Bonus: If you are a girl or a woman or a lady or a madaam, and you think that your voice is not being heard. Allah is telling you that he is attentively listening to you!

  • ولكنكم فتنتم أنفسكم 57:14

    -You tested your own selves. You knew somethings were not good for you, but you kept insisting that nothing would happen. You kept testing yourself. You made it hard upon yourself.

    -You then kept procrastinating. You kept thinking that you will fix yourself later. And then when later, you said later. And you kept procrastinating.

    -Then your procrastination led you to start having doubts about what you believed in. Because that was much easier than actually fixing yourself.
    Your lack of quality in belief led you to a lack in quantity. Reality became a joke to you. You started having doubts.

    -And then not long after, you started justifying life as it was continuing. You started hoping false hopes. Hoping false hopes became an automatic action in your mind after you kept pushing away the concept of reality.

    -But then it hit. The very thing you kept pushing away is here.

  • الم يأن للذين آمنوا ان تخشع قلوبهم 17-57:16

    “Isn’t it time for the hearts of the believers to humble themselves to the remember since of God? Shouldn’t they recognize the truth bestowed upon upon then, so they won’t become like those who received revelations in the past, but whose hearts have hardened over time, so much so that many of them are now hopelessly rebellious?” 16

    HOPE: “Know that God brings life to the earth after it was dead. We’ve made our proofs clear to you so you can understand.” 17

    Commentary from myself: Honestly ok left speechless after these ayahs. There is nothing I can say. These two ayahs speak for themselves. One cannot read them enough.

  • من أشد منا قوة؟ 41:15

    أولم يروا ان الله الذي خلقهم هو أشد منهم قوة

    Search Up:

    1.) “Ethnocentrism” = evaluating other peoples and cultures according to the standards of one’s own culture.

    2.) “Temporal Chauvinism” or as C.S. Lewis and others have called it: “Chronological snobbery”. “Which is the “the erroneous argument (usually considered an outright fallacy) that the thinking, art, or science of an earlier time is inherently inferior to that of the present, simply by virtue of its temporal priority.” <- Definition quoted by wiki.
