[037:076]  And We delivered him and his people from the Great Calamity,
[037:077]  And made his progeny to endure (on this earth);
[037:078]  And We left (this blessing) for him among generations to come in later times:
[037:079]  "Peace and salutation to Noah among the nations!"

Prophet Noah, peace be upon him, and his followers (people) were saved.  The believers were not drowned.  Noah's son was among the disbelievers and he perished.

Noah's offspring after the flood were the fathers and bloodline of Prophets.  This I believe is limited to the Middle Eastern Prophets and Messengers.

Learn Arabic / Re: Plurals

*CORRECTION:This is important. I dont knowwhat I was thinking of the day I made this lesson but the plural for "وَالِدٌ (father)" is وَالِدُوْنَ, not وَالِدَانِ. The latter is the dual form (2 fathers), while the former is the plural form (3+ fathers).

SORRY FOR TEACHING FALSE KNOWLEDGE!

Ok one last question. Why does Quran verse 37:77 say that only Noah's descendents were saved from the flood when Noah's followers who were not his family were also in the Ark?

(I now understand that the verse says only his household OUT OF HIS PEOPLE were saved and not out of the whole world but now I am asking why it says only his descendents were saved as he also had unrelated followers?)

Jazakallah Khayran

wa Alaikum As'salam Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatuh,

"...We could drown them: then no one would respond to their cries, nor would they be rescued"


The flood was local.  It did not include all nations of the earth.  It was only a punishment to Noah's people similar GOD Almighty's punishment to Lot's people.  Please visit:

Quran Morality and Moral Code, Laws & QA / Quran abolished slavery
« Last post by Emre_1974tr on December 20, 2021, 04:02:07 AM »
My Turkish article translated with machine:

Quran abolished slavery

And the subject of slavery is constantly being asked and discussed. Although some authors have made necessary explanations on this subject, I thought I would mention it.

The Qur'an forbade slavery and declared that people are equal.

As stated in the Qur'an, even the prophets do not have the authority to take slaves. Servitude-slavery to something other than Allah, that is, created is one of the greatest sins:

Zumer
29. GOD gives the example of a man with conflicting partners and a man who is dependent on a single person. Will these two ever be equal? Praise is to GOD. But many do not know.

(Man has only one master, and that is our Lord. Servitude-slavery to anyone other than the Almighty Creator is shirk, and in this verse, those who serve only Allah and those who are created are compared with an example. And it is stated that these two are not the same.)

Religion They have taken the scholars, the priests, and the Messiah, son of Mary, as lords (masters) after GOD. However, they were commanded to serve only one God. There is no god but Him. He is Higher than those whom he associates with. (

9:31 ) Say: 'People of the Books! Come to a principle that is the same between us and you: that we should not serve anyone but Allah, and that we should not associate anything with Him, and that neither of us should take the other as lords after Allah. ` If they do not accept, `bear witness, we are Muslims! say. (3: 64)

Surah Ali Imran
Verse 79: No one to whom Allah has given the book, knowledge and prophethood has the authority to stand up and say to people: "Be a servant to me, not to Allah". But: "Become the soldiers of Allah's way because you are teaching the book and taking lessons!" says.

Surah Hud Verse 2: That is, do not be a servant to anyone but Allah! I am a prophet sent by Him to give good news and warn you!

Surah Anbiya,
Verse 98: "You and those you serve as slaves besides Allah are the firewood of Hell. You will all enter there."

No Muslim could acquire slaves after the religion of Islam (the periods when true Islam in the Qur'an was practiced). But the cessation of slaves from the period of ignorance took place step by step. The verses command the release of the slaves in the smallest thing, financial assistance to them, and getting them married if the age has come. For example:

5 Maide Surah
89 GOD does not hold you responsible for your random oaths. However, it holds you accountable for what you knowingly do. If you break your oath, the punishment is to feed or clothe ten poor people from the food you usually feed your family, or release a slave. Whoever cannot find it should fast for three days. This is the punishment for your willful oaths. Keep your vows. This is how Allah explains His verses so that you may respond well.

BELED
12. Do you know what the hard way is?
13. To liberate slaves;


It is clearly stated that even prisoners of war cannot be enslaved.

"When you finally prevail, take them captive; release them either free of charge or for ransom. Apply this until the war situation is over. "(47-4)

Allah, with a slave who has no power and is the property of someone else, secretly and openly from the beautiful sustenance We have given him. He gives as an example the one who spends in the way of Allah. Are they ever equal? Praise be to Allah, but most of them do not know. (Nahl 75)

Here again, a person who serves other than Allah is compared with a free person who serves only Allah, and slavery is condemned. We also see in the verse that wealth is held above poverty. These and similar verses indicate that servitude should only be against Allah.

And in fact, in a religion where even stealing is prohibited, slavery, that is, stealing human freedom, is completely abolished.

Think about it, while it is forbidden to even take a person's car or pen without permission, it is highly prohibited to acquire a slave by stealing that person's self.

In other words, if you cannot take even one item of a person without permission, it means that you cannot make that person a slave to you by force.

And again, as stated in the verses, since all people are free to believe and live as they wish, slavery is prohibited in the religion of Islam, due to the world of testing.

Peace

Learn Arabic / Simple Sound Verbs: Three Possible Shapes
« Last post by Qualities of Allah on December 19, 2021, 06:50:59 PM »
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I have not been here for half a year but now we will continue from where we left off.

So last topic, we conjugated كَتَبَ, a simple sound verb. This topic, I will show the three different shapes simple sound verbs can have. The different shapes depend on the vowel of the second root letter of the verb, which can either be fatha, dhamma, or kasra. Usually, Arabs use the verb فَعَلَ (to do) as the dummy verb, so we will use this verb.

The three different shapes are: فَعَلَ (ex. كَتَبَ), فَعِلَ (ex. لَعِبَ), and فَعُلَ (ex. قَرُبَ).

Now, when verbs in the form of فَعَلَ (fatha on second root letter) are conjugated into the present tense, the second root letter can have any of the three vowels on it depending on which verb it is. For example, كَتَبَ (he wrote) is conjugated into يَكْتُبُ (he writes) with a dhamma on the second root letter, thus following the pattern يَفْعُلُ. Now the verb جَلَسَ (he sat) is conjugated into يَجْلِسُ (he sits) with a kasra on the second root letter, following the pattern يَفْعِلُ. Finally, the verb فَعَلَ (he did) itself is conjugated into يَفْعَلُ (he does) with a fatha on the second root letter, following the form يَفْعَلُ (obviously).

As you can see, verbs of the form فَعَلَ can be conjugated into three different shapes in the present tense. There is no method (that I know of) of knowing which verbs get conjugated into which form in the present tense. The shape each verb becomes in the present tense form has to be memorized by heart manually.

Now moving on to verbs in the shape of فَعِلَ. When verbs of these shapes are conjugated into the present tense, they either take the pattern of يَفْعَلُ or يَفْعِلُ. For example, the verb لَعِبَ (he played) becomes يَلْعَبُ (he plays) with a fatha on the second root letter, following the model يَفْعَلُ, while the verb حَسِبَ (he thought) becomes يَحْسِبُ (he thinks) with a kasra on the second root letter, following the model يَفْعِلُ. (*NOTE: حَسِبَ is one of those verbs that can either be conjugated into يَحْسِبُ or يَحْسَبُ, so it follows both possible patterns it can take in the present tense form.)

Now for verbs with this shape (فَعِلَ), you also have to memorize by heart which form it will take in the present tense. However, for this one there are only two forms it can take, in contrast to the three forms of فَعَلَ shaped verbs. So this should be easier to memorize by heart than the last one.

Finally, the last shape a verb can have in the past tense, فَعُلَ. This one does not require any memorizing manually. You just need to know that verbs of these shape will be in the form of يَفْعُلُ in the present tense with a dhamma on the second root letter. The second root letter is dhamma in the past tense as well as present tense. For example, the verb قَرُبَ (he was near) is conjugated into يَقْرُبُ (he is near).

So this one is easy.

Last thing I want to mention before I am done with this topic, simple sound verbs aren't the only verbs with different possible shapes. Other verbs also have different possible shapes.

How is everyone?

I have not been here for almost half a year but now I am back to ask more questions. So if the flood of Nuh عليه السلام was local can anyone on this forum explain these verses?

[36:41-43]"Another sign for them is that We carried their ancestors ˹with Noah˺ in the fully loaded Ark,
and created for them similar things to ride in.
If We willed, We could drown them: then no one would respond to their cries, nor would they be rescued—"


[17:003]"O descendants of those We carried [in the ship] with Noah. Indeed, he was a grateful servant."

[69:011]"Indeed, when the floodwater had overflowed, We carried you in the floating Ark ˹with Noah˺,"

As for verse 37:77, brother Osama cleared that up for me completely so Jazakallah Khayran for that.

But please tell me why these 3 verses say we are descendants of those in the ship with Noah.

Please address these 3 verses one by one.

جزاكم الله خيرا

63. See ye the seed that ye sow in the ground?

Such is Allah, your Lord and Cherisher: to Him belongs (all) dominion. There is no god but He: then how are ye turned away (from your true Lord)?



40. The Believer (Al-Mümin)

57. Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is a greater (matter) than the creation of men: Yet most men know not.

10. Jonah (Yünus)

6. Verily, in the alternation of the night and the day, and in all that Allah hath created, in the heavens and the earth, are Signs for those who fear Him.



51. The Winds that Scatter (Az-Záriyát)

49. And of every thing We have created pairs: that ye may reflect.



36. Yá-Sín

38. And the Sun runs unto a resting place: that is the decree of (Him), the Exalted in Might, the All-Knowing.



29. The Spider (Al-Ànkabüt)

43. And such are the Parables We set forth for mankind, but only those understand them who have knowledge.



77. Those Sent Forth (Al-Mursalát)

8. Then when the stars become dim; (dies of stars-like black holes)



24. Light (An-Nür)

43. Seest thou not that Allah makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap? - then wilt thou see rain issue forth from their midst. And He sends down from the sky mountain masses (of clouds) wherein is hail: He strikes therewith whom He pleases and He turns it away from whom He pleases, the vivid flash of its lightning well-nigh blinds the sight.



Yasin

77. Doth not man see that it is We Who created him from sperm? Yet behold! he (stands forth) as an open adversary!

78. And he makes comparisons for Us, and forgets his own (origin and) Creation: he says, "Who can give life to (dry) bones and decomposed ones (at that)?"

79. Say, "He will give them life Who created them for the first time! For He fully knows all!-

80. "The same Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, when behold! ye kindle therewith (your own fires)!

81. "Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like thereof?" - Yea, indeed! for He is the Creator Supreme, of skill and knowledge (infinite)!
