DECIPHERING THE VERSES:
MUHKAM AND MUTASHABIH


Your safety matters.
Due to COVID-19, all of our upcoming Seminary modules are temporarily being conducted online on Google Meet.

Overview

‘Aishah narrated that Allah’s Messenger ﷺ recited Surah Ali ‘Imran, Ayat 7. Then, he ﷺ said: “Oh ‘Aishah, if you see those who dispute concerning it (The Quran), they are those whom Allah has referred to here, so beware of them.”
– [Sunan ibn Majah, Kitab Al-Muqaddimah]

The Quran is a book of eloquent language that requires proactive thought and a preponderant pursuit of the truth, to truly decipher its intentions. God expects of His servants, that they attempt to exercise thought and reason, while contemplating the realities of life. Through this journey of seeking the understanding of ourselves and this life, we are bound to hit the barriers of thought, specified by our innate limitations in intellectuality. What we do when we hit those barriers can either bring us towards an increase in awe for The Most High, The Most Knowledgeable, or, it can lead us to a false perception of our own stature as human beings.

The Quran categorizes its verses to be distinctly clear and explicit in some instances, and in other cases, the verses may be classified as ambiguous, and thus, markedly interpretive. A keen reader would be considerate of such paradigms in the study of The Quran, initiating further inquiry into the language and the meanings of God’s divine revelation. As seekers of God and His knowledge, our journey towards understanding God and ourselves, puts us through such challenges that manoeuvre our minds into overdrive.

Through an intense search for the meanings of God’s words, we are appreciative of our own capabilities in thought, while conceding that ultimate authority and superiority of knowledge belongs to none other than God, The Most Wise. Dear seekers of The Quran, let’s put our minds through its paces, to decipher God’s verses.
