  1. THEMES OF QURAN

  2. Allah in Himself Allah in Himself (Person) • The Holy Quran describes and elaborates details about the person of Allah. • Usually certain symbolic expressions and parables have been used for this purpose. • For example, Surah An Nur describes Allah as a 'light', Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His Lights as if there were a Niche and within it a lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the Glass as it were a brilliant star: lit from a blessed Tree, an Olive, neither of the East nor of the West, who soil is well-nighluminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth set forth Parables for men: and Allah doth know all things.(Nur : 35)

  3. Allah in Himself (Attributes) • The Holy Quran describes and elaborates details about the nature and attributes of Allah using parables & analogies • Attributes of Allah “Allah is He, than whom there is no other god― the sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection). The Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety ,the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (High is He) above the partners they attribute to Him.(23) He is Allah the Creator, the Evolver ,the Bestower of Forms (or Colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth ,declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the exalted in Might, the Wise. (Surah Al Hashr)

  4. Allah in Himself (Powers) • Another oft repeated theme is that of Allah's Unmatchable power, “ Verily , when He intends a thing, His command is "Be" and it is! (36:82) • Sura Al Anaam Allah in Himself (Signs) • “Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Adore not the sun and the moon, but adore Allah, who created them, if it is Him you wish to serve” SurahFussilat/Sajda
