    وعن أبي سعيد سعد بن مالك بن سنان الخدري رضي الله عنهما‏:‏ ‏"‏أن ناساً من الأنصار سألوا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فأعطاهم، ثم سألوه فأعطاهم ، حتى نفد ما عنده، فقال لهم حين أنفق كل شيء بيده ‏:‏ ‏"‏ما يكن عندي من خير فلن أدخره عنكم ، ومن يستعفف يعفه الله، ومن يستغن يغنه الله، ومن يتصبر يصبره الله‏.‏ وما أعطي أحد عطاءً خيراً وأوسع من الصبر‏"‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏ ‏.‏

    Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that:

    Certain people of the Ansar asked the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and he gave them; then they again asked him and he gave them until all what he possessed was exhausted. Then the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Whatever wealth I have, I will not withhold from you. Whosoever would be chaste and modest; Allah will keep him chaste and modest and whosoever would seek self-sufficiency, Allah will make him self-sufficient; and whosoever would be patient, Allah will give him patience, and no one is granted a gift better and more comprehensive than patience".

    ﻗُﻞِ اﻟْﺤَﻤْﺪُ ﻟِﻠَّﻪِ ﻭَﺳَﻼَﻡٌ ﻋَﻠَﻰٰ ﻋِﺒَﺎﺩِﻩِ اﻟَّﺬِﻳﻦَ اﺻْﻄَﻔَﻰٰ ۗ ﺁﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﺧَﻴْﺮٌ ﺃَﻣَّﺎ ﻳُﺸْﺮِﻛُﻮﻥَ

    Say, [O Muhammad], "Praise be to Allah, and peace upon His servants whom He has chosen. Is Allah better or what they associate with Him?"

    ﺃَﻣَّﻦْ ﺧَﻠَﻖَ اﻟﺴَّﻤَﺎﻭَاﺕِ ﻭَاﻷَْﺭْﺽَ ﻭَﺃَﻧْﺰَﻝَ ﻟَﻜُﻢْ ﻣِﻦَ اﻟﺴَّﻤَﺎءِ ﻣَﺎءً ﻓَﺄَﻧْﺒَﺘْﻨَ ﺑِﻪِ ﺣَﺪَاﺋِﻖَ ﺫَاﺕَ ﺑَﻬْﺠَﺔٍ ﻣَﺎ ﻛَﺎﻥَ ﻟَﻜُﻢْ ﺃَﻥْ ﺗُﻨْﺒِﺘُﻮا ﺷَﺠَﺮَﻫَﺎ ۗ ﺃَﺇِﻟَٰﻪٌ ﻣَﻊَ اﻟﻠَّﻪِ ۚ ﺑَﻞْ ﻫُﻢْ ﻗَﻮْﻡٌ ﻳَﻌْﺪِﻟُﻮﻥَ

    [More precisely], is He [not best] who created the heavens and the earth and sent down for you rain from the sky, causing to grow thereby gardens of joyful beauty which you could not [otherwise] have grown the trees thereof? Is there a deity with Allah? [No], but they are a people who ascribe equals [to Him].

    ﺃَﻣَّﻦْ ﺟَﻌَﻞَ اﻷَْﺭْﺽَ ﻗَﺮَاﺭًا ﻭَﺟَﻌَﻞَ ﺧِﻼَﻟَﻬَﺎ ﺃَﻧْﻬَﺎﺭًا ﻭَﺟَﻌَﻞَ ﻟَﻬَﺎ ﺭَﻭَاﺳِﻲَ ﻭَﺟَﻌَﻞَ ﺑَﻴْﻦَ اﻟْﺒَﺤْﺮَﻳْﻦِ ﺣَﺎﺟِﺰًا ۗ ﺃَﺇِﻟَٰﻪٌ ﻣَﻊَ اﻟﻠَّﻪِ ۚ ﺑَﻞْ ﺃَﻛْﺜَﺮُﻫُﻢْ ﻻَ ﻳَﻌْﻠَﻤُﻮﻥَ

    Is He [not best] who made the earth a stable ground and placed within it rivers and made for it firmly set mountains and placed between the two seas a barrier? Is there a deity with Allah? [No], but most of them do not know.

    ﺃَﻣَّﻦْ ﻳُﺠِﻴﺐُ اﻟْﻤُﻀْﻄَﺮَّ ﺇِﺫَا ﺩَﻋَﺎﻩُ ﻭَﻳَﻜْﺸِﻒُ اﻟﺴُّﻮءَ ﻭَﻳَﺠْﻌَﻠُﻜُ ْ ﺧُﻠَﻔَﺎءَ اﻷَْﺭْﺽِ ۗ ﺃَﺇِﻟَٰﻪٌ ﻣَﻊَ اﻟﻠَّﻪِ ۚ ﻗَﻠِﻴﻼً ﻣَﺎ ﺗَﺬَﻛَّﺮُﻭﻥَ

    Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah? Little do you remember.

    ﺃَﻣَّﻦْ ﻳَﻬْﺪِﻳﻜُﻢْ ﻓِﻲ ﻇُﻠُﻤَﺎﺕِ اﻟْﺒَﺮِّ ﻭَاﻟْﺒَﺤْﺮِ ﻭَﻣَﻦْ ﻳُﺮْﺳِﻞُ اﻟﺮِّﻳَﺎﺡَ ﺑُﺸْﺮًا ﺑَﻴْﻦَ ﻳَﺪَﻱْ ﺭَﺣْﻤَﺘِﻪِ ۗ ﺃَﺇِﻟَٰﻪٌ ﻣَﻊَ اﻟﻠَّﻪِ ۚ ﺗَﻌَﺎﻟَﻰ اﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻤَّﺎ ﻳُﺸْﺮِﻛُﻮﻥَ

    Is He [not best] who guides you through the darknesses of the land and sea and who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy? Is there a deity with Allah? High is Allah above whatever they associate with Him.

    As the Arabs of that time were so linguistically gifted, a linguistic miracle was fit for the situation. Quran was sent to people who were so eloquent in the Arabic language. If the Quran was not a linguistic miracle, then any of the Arabs and Arab poets in Mekkah (where the prophet peace be upon him stayed for 13 years calling people to worship Allah alone) would come up and say some poetry to challenge the Quran (since the challenge to them was clear) but none was able to challenge the eloquence of the Quran.

    The miraculousness of the Quran is an axiom to whomever studies Arabic academically.

    It is terrible and disturbing to see all the attacks happening around the world and just recently in Europe too. My thoughts are with the victims always. May Allah protect and bless his mercy on the innocents. Ameen.

    That is very true.
    Reading its words, seeing the power they convey and how it fits together in its unique inimitable style.
    It leaves you in awe.

    My teacher was just referring to this yesterday. And Arab poetry was some next level poetry but it had nothing on the Quran. Even the kuffar at that time knew the Quran was something special, but rejected it out of their arrogance. I was told this story yesterday, bit long but worth the read-
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Muhammad bin Ishaq mentioned that Az-Zuhri said that Abu Jahl, Abu Sufyan Sakhr bin Harb and Al-Akhnas bin Shurayq once came to listen to the Prophet reciting the Qur'an at night, but these three men were not aware of the presence of each other. So they listened to the Prophet's recitation until the morning, and then left. They met each other on their way back and each one of them asked the others, "What brought you'' So they mentioned to each other the reason why they came. They vowed not to repeat this incident so that the young men of Quraysh would not hear of what they did and imitate them. On the second night, each one of the three came back thinking that the other two would not come because of the vows they made to each other. In the morning, they again met each other on their way back and criticized each other, vowing not to repeat what they did. On the third night, they again went to listen to the Prophet and in the morning they again vowed not to repeat this incident. During that day, Al-Akhnas bin Shurayq took his staff and went to Abu Sufyan bin Harb in his house saying, "O Abu Hanzalah! What is your opinion concerning what you heard from Muhammad.'' Abu Sufyan said, "O Abu Tha`labah! By Allah, I have heard some things that I recognize and know their implications. I also heard some things whose meaning and implications were unknown to me.'' Al-Akhnas said, "And I the same, by He Whom you swore by!'' Al-Akhnas left Abu Sufyan and went to Abu Jahl and asked him, "O Abu Al-Hakam! What is your opinion about what you heard from Muhammad. '' Abu Jahl said, "We competed with Bani `Abd Manaf (the Prophet's subtribe) and so we fed as they fed and gave away as they gave away. So, when we were neck and neck with them, just as two horses in a race, they said, `There is a Prophet from among us, to whom revelation from the heaven comes.' So how can we ever beat them at that By Allah we will never believe in him or accept what he says.' This is when Al-Akhnas left Abu Jahl and went away.''

    Strange and twisted times we live in these days.
    When the prophet pbuh invited a christian deligation to his mosque to debate them, yet they ignore that.
    When the orders of the prophet for warfare (which this isn't) were to not kill women, children, the unarmed or those in places of worship, to not mutilate the dead, to not betray those who expect peace from you, to not transgress. Yet they choose to ignore that.
    When the prophets forbids to kill the elderly.
    When the prophet gives the strongest of warnings against those who go against the above orders, yet they ignore that.
    When God almighty ordains to call to his path through wisdom and good reminder.
    When God almighty when sending moses pbuh to one of the most evil men, yet he tell moses to remind him with soft reminders. Yet we see them use the harshest of words.
    When this was the path of the prophet and righteous companions after him, yet they follow not this path.

    When they ignore God and prophet, and kill in a cowardly manner an elderly man, an unarmed man, a man worshiping in his temple. I ask you what religion are they following? What sunnah are they implementing?
    Truly their ilk will slip away from islam as the arrow flies away from the bow (as has been said by the prophet pbuh)

    May Allah rid us of their curse.
    And it is our duty as muslims to fight against their distortions with our hands, our words and our hearts.
