Mohamad Hassan Abou Daya In Light of Islam Light is often taken as a divine essence in several religions. This holds true in Islam through its vast traditions regarding light. Shiites, Sunnis and Sufis use light to describe people, support theological claims or emphasize the importance of some events. This paper will target studying the use of light in Islam using the Quran, traditions and journals. The Quran has a good share of the use of light to describe a set of items.
According to Islam The origin of Islam is generally accredited to the prophet Muhammad but to the devout Muslim, Islam began long before Muhammad ever walked the earth. The Qur 'an was dictated by Muhammad but, according to the Qur 'an, it did not originate with Muhammad. The Qur 'an testifies of itself that it was given by God through the angel Gabriel to the prophet Muhammad. "This is a revelation from the Lord of the universe. The Honest Spirit (Gabriel) came down with it, to reveal it into your heart that you may be one of the warners, in a perfect Arabic tongue" (Sura 26:192-195).
INTRODUCTION The book of Jonah is categorized as a prophetic narrative but one that is different from the rest. Unlike other prophetic narratives where the emphasis is on “the prophet’s faithfulness to God’s call, and God’s approval and blessing,” we find a rebellious prophet confronting God in the book of Jonah. Nonetheless, the book has a profound message the author intends to convey to its readers which this study will uncover. Thus, the objective of this exposition paper is to understand Jonah 1 in the light of the overarching theological message of the book. This paper attempts to achieve its objective by proposing a literary analysis of Jonah 1 using four literary devices: plot analysis, character analysis, setting and points of view.
E) The parable of the ten virgins (Matthew 25) among others.

While both religious servants, Jeremiah is a prophet while Zwingli serves as a priest. Ultimately, the two aim to progress their religions and to serve as touchpoints for followers to gain access to the holy spirit. However, there are two crucial factors that differentiate their respective positions: (1) the human-God relationship and (2) the means to stake their claims. Jeremiah act as God's messenger; he facilitates the dialogue from God to the people. On the contrary, Zwingli's role is the people's messenger who officiates the thoughts of human to God.
Indeed, scholars suggest that apocalyptic is a development of Jewish prophetic literature. Mutual characteristics include the communication of God’s word for the present age, the themes of impending judgement and salvation, and the use of symbolism. However, in careful study of works such as 1 Enoch, 2 Esedras and 2 Baruch, as well as Daniel and Revelation, scholars have identified distinctive characteristics, which help to define apocalyptic as a unique
The question of authorship of the Bible, more specifically the Pentateuch has an important bearing upon its meaning and its reliability. The traditional notion that the Pentateuch is attributed to Moses can be derived from both biblical and extra-biblical evidence. As Gleason Archer points out in “A Survey of Old Testament,” Moses is attributed with authorship within the Pentateuch itself. Take Exodus 34:27 for example, “The Lord said to Moses, ‘Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Other books within the Old Testament but outside the Pentateuch (Joshua 1:8, 8:32) also allude to the Pentateuch as the book/law of Moses.
It was a very important part of The Prophets life that purified his family by Allah as is stated in the Quran. Hazleton put these stories in a way that you could picture in your head easily. When telling the Hadith of the Pen and Paper, it’s almost as if you were there beside the Prophet Muhammad’s
And we give them their dues by observing the characteristics of each letter that are present in them some of the time and not present at other times. The Quran was revealed with Tajweed rules applied to it. In other words, when the angel Jibreel (alaihis salaam) recited the words of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) he recited them in a certain way and he showed the Prophet (pbuh) the ways in which it was permissible to recite the Quran. So it is upon us to observe those rules so that we recite it in the way it was revealed. At the
