Surah Ar Rahman - The Jewel of the Holy Qur'an

Assalamualaikum dear Brothers & Sisters.

Amongst the recitations of the Holy Al Qur'an Al Kareem out there today on You Tube is this beautiful recitation of Surah Ar Rahman by Brother Sadaqat Ali, an excellent Qari.

Listen to and contemplate on the meanings of this beautiful surah that is described by Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam as the bride of the Qur'an.

This surah is addressed to both Mankind and the Djinn, to whom Almighty Allah has given the freedom to seek His Mercy on their own accord and yet has not left us without Guidance.

This Guidance is here in the form of the Holy Qur'an, the Complete Revelations of Ar Rahman, the Beneficient who reminds us as to all His Blessings to us, both Mankind and the Djinn.

May those who watch this recitation get the benefit and blessing from this beautiful surah.

Dear bro.Mahaguru58,

Your above interview with the hindraf commendable.And also it is heartening to see you all address each other as bothers eventhough you all belief in different faiths.

Towards the end of your interview you raised the question about hindraf saying things against islam.Well to be honest I have not seen that particular statement,if indeed such a remark was made then I regret it and share the dissapointment with you and all muslims in malaysia.I am very sure that remark must have been made at the spur of the moment out of anger,dissapointment and frustration seeing an old temple being demolished without the slightest respect and compassion to a community which had been very loyal to the BN govt for the last 5 decades.I am sure that remark will be retracted soon as hindus are generally quite a submissive and docile lot in Malaysia.More so Hinduism is not a religious or political doctrine which imposes itself by force.It only teaches us to love mankind.

Having said all the above I wish to ask you bro.why do you have to say that we are all brothers and that we come from almighty allah?Then you ask them to learn something from the palm and so on?
Well I know your intentions are good and noble but I feel by doing so, you are trying to impose on them what have been thought to you by your faith.Why cant just stop by addressing each other as brothers and that we are all the creations of god.Well I am not here to argue with you about religion as I am not qualified in that aspect,but what I am trying to highlight here is that there is no need to impose your religious ideology on those who dont belong to your faith,though you meant well,simply because there bound to be disagreements,then we are back to square one again bro.Hinduism being the oldest religion in the world and being a very rich philosophy has its own teachings as to the existence of mankind too.

We hindus in Malaysia are already hurt due the indiscriminate temple demolitions and discriminations,therefore the last thing we need now is to hurt islam or muslims.A mistake was done and I believe it has been retracted or if not yet I m sure it will be retracted soon.

Bro Mahaguru,what I have written here is merely my personal viewpoint and in no way intended to discredit Islam or for that matter any other religion,as i respect all faiths.I rest my case and may god bless you and all Malaysians.

Dear brother resh,

Thanks for writing to me.

I understand your points but I was just sharing what's the truth with them.

It is important that mankind comes to realize our origins to be the same and from one source.

I know that with that short explanation, you and others would not have come to fully understand what I was sharing with you but God willing, one of these days, I will try to share more with my readers.

As we all know, these things can't be explained in just a few minutes of hurried time but takes years and years of disciplined and studious learning that has to come from within one who seeks to acquire the Truth.

For now, let's agree that we are all brothers based upon our origin from one source, that is our Father Adam and Mother Hawwa, may Allah be pleased with them.

I appreciate your gesture in sending me this comment and am looking forward to maybe exchanging emails with you in the future.

For now, my best wishes are here for you and the Malaysian citizens who are striving for change.

May peace and harmony be with us with the Mercy and Blessings of Almighty Allah.

Peace be to you bro.
