Some Quranic Verses worth reading for an Ismaili Muslim

I start in the name of Allah, the ONE and above all.

Below are some of the Quranic Ayats an Ismaili Muslim should read and think about their so called Tariquah:

  1. Say: “Who is the Lord and Sustainer of the heavens and the earth?” Say: “(It is) Allah.” Say: “Do ye then take (for worship) protectors other than Him, such as have no power either for good or for harm to themselves?” Say: “Are the blind equal with those who see? Or the depths of darkness equal with Light?” Or do they assign to Allah partners who have created (anything) as He has created, so that the creation seemed to them similar? Say: “Allah is the Creator of all things: He is the One, the Supreme and Irresistible.” Al –Rad (Chapter 13 Verse 16)
  2. “Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with him; but He forgiveth anything, else to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin most heinous indeed.” An-Nisa (Chapter 4, Verse 48)
  3. “Say (unto them, O Muhammad): I pray unto Allah only, and ascribe unto Him no partner.”  Al – Jinn (Chapter 72, Verse 20)
  4. “I have only created jinns and men, that they may serve Me. ” Adh- Dhariyat(Chapter 51, Verse 56)
  5. “And the places of worship are for Allah (alone): so invoke not anyone along with Allah”Al – Jinn (Chapter 51, Verse 56)
  6. And if ye are in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto Our slave (Muhammad), then produce a surah of the like thereof, and call your witness beside Allah if ye are truthful.  Al-Baqara (Chapter 2, Verse 183).
  7. Yet there are men who take (for worship) others besides Allah, as equal (with Allah); they love them as they should love Allah. But those of faith are overflowing in their love for Allah. If only the unrighteous could see, behold, they would see the Punishment: that to Allah belongs all power, and Allah will strongly enforce the Punishment. Al Baqara (Chapter 2 Verse 165)
  8. Say, I have been forbidden to worship those whom you worship other than Allah; say, I do not follow your desires – if it were, I would then go astray and not be on the right path. (Chapter 6 Verse 56)
  9. When those who gave partners to Allah will see their “partners”, they will say: “Our Lord! these are our ‘partners,’ those whom we used to invoke besides Thee.” But they will throw back their word at them (and say): “Indeed ye are liars!”(86)That Day shall they (openly) show (their) submission to Allah; and all their inventions shall leave them in the lurch.(87) An-Nahl (Chapter 16 Verse 86-87)
  10. Surely We have revealed the Book to you with truth; so worship Allah making your submission exclusive for Him. (2) Remember, Allah alone deserves the exclusive submission. As for those who have adopted guardians other than Him (saying), “We worship them for no other reason but because they would bring us near to Allah closely”, Allah will judge between them in the matters in which they are differing. Surely, Allah does not guide anyone who is liar, highly infidel. Az-Zumar (Chapter 39 Verse 2-3)

“Still Ismailis raise hands after the Dua and ask forgiveness to MHI (Maulana Hazar Imam) by saying (Ya Ali Ya Noor Maulana Shah Karim Al Husaini Hazar Imam to Jumle Jamat Ja kool Gunah Maaf Kar) instead of Allah Subhanahu wa-ta’ala.”

8. “O ye who believe! fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you that ye may (learn) self-restraint.”  Al-Baqara (Chapter 2, Verse 183)

“There is no importance given on Fasting in the Jamat, No Special Faramans from MHI on fasting during Ramadan.”

9.  “We have seen the turning of thy face to heaven (for guidance, O Muhammad). And now verily We shall make thee turn (in prayer) toward a qiblah which is dear to thee. So turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship, and ye (O Muslims), wheresoever ye may be, turn your faces (when ye pray) toward it. Lo! Those who have received the Scripture know that (this revelation) is the Truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do.” Al-Baqara (Chapter 2, Verse 144)

“Are Ismaili Jamatkhanas are built considering Qiblah in to consideration?”

  1. As salamun alaikum to all brothers and sisters of Islam . I have read everything on this website.what is mentioned here its very true I am also going through all these questions from a very long timebut ismailis dont discuss all this in Jk or anywhere else bcoz there are lots of questions about this tariqah in todays world. One important question comes to my mind according to today’s world I can change myself to original message of Islam but what about 5 times prayers how its going to happen in today’s demanding world is it possible for employees to attend 5 times prayer will any of your real muslim employer allow a employee to pray 5 times a day in working hours Accually 3 times afternoon evening and magrib and then what about late magrib and then again in early morning after a long day work it is impossible to get up at 5 am. Do you have any quranic ayat to support prayer schedule according to todays world. Otherwise everything is fine zakat roza hajj I can do all that’s not a problem. Please reply. As salamun Alaikum.

  2. As salaamu alaikum Maroof,

    I just wanted to address your questions on doing salat 5 times a day. It is most definitely possible, but it will be challenging (especially if you live in a non-Muslim land like me). I have a job during the day, but I still manage to do my Zuhr and sometimes Asr (usually just do this at home) prayer at work. I sometimes feel lazy and felt that it was too difficult when I started praying, as none of my family apart from my grandparents prayed salat every day. You have to understand it is required of us as Muslims. Rasulullah SAW said that the only thing separating Muslims from kuffar is abandoning the 5 daily prayers. Imagine that salat is not even excused if you are at war! What excuse do we have in this day and age for not praying. We must pray to give thanks and praise the One who created us.

    Also remember that initially, Allah decreed to Rasulullah SAW on the Miraj that Muslims should pray 50 times a day! It was only after asking Allah to reduce the amount several times that the present number of 5 a day was revealed. This alone is a huge mercy from Allah, that we only have to do 5 a day. These 5 prayers might take 30 minutes to do a day, counting wudu and such. Only 2% of our day is required of us to thank the One who has given us everything, without whom we would be nothing.

    Remember too that the Qur’an was not revealed just for the Arabs and people of Rasulallah SAW’s time. It is until the day of judgment. We must abide by the rules Allah laid down. I suggest you read Qur’an translation and you will see for yourself how often Allah mentions Salat and how important it is for us to uphold.

    Inshallah, once you realize its importance and resolve to do it, Allah will make it easy for you. Try to change your attitude, too. I realize this is easier said than done, but if you are truly thankful and appreciative of the gifts of Allah, He will inshallah make it easier for you to pray on time. Don’t give up, even if you miss a few or if you get discouraged or feel like it doesn’t matter. Remember the habits of Rasulullah and read the Qur’an for encouragement!

    I pray Allah helps you fulfill your duties and helps all of us be better Muslims.

    P.S. Here is a very helpful link from an Islamic fatwa site that explains some of the importance of salat:
