Parables in the Qur'an

As salaamu alaikum,
I hope it's ok if I start this thread here.

I've always LOVED the parables Allah swt use in the Qur'an. One of the many miracles of the Qur'an .. really subhaanAllah. Let's post them in this thread .. with nice pictures if you can get some : )

I'll start ..

Surah Ibraheem:
24. See you not how Allâh sets forth a parable? A goodly word as a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky (i.e. very high).
25. Giving its fruit at all times, by the Leave of its Lord and Allâh sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember.
26. And the parable of an evil word is that of an evil tree uprooted from the surface of earth having no stability.

Re: Parables in the Qur'an

Nice thread!

47:15 [And can] the parable of the paradise which the God-conscious are promised [a paradise] wherein there are rivers of water which time does not corrupt, and rivers of milk the taste whereof never alters, and rivers of wine delightful to those who drink it, and rivers of honey of all impurity cleansed, and the enjoyment of all the fruits [of their good deeds] and of forgiveness from their Sustainer -: can this [parable of paradise] be likened unto [the parable of the recompense of] such as are to abide in the fire and be given waters of burning despair to drink, so that it will tear their bowels asunder?

مَثَلُ الْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي وُعِدَ الْمُتَّقُونَ فِيهَا أَنْهَارٌ مِّن مَّاء غَيْرِ آسِنٍ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِن لَّبَنٍ لَّمْ يَتَغَيَّرْ طَعْمُهُ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِّنْ خَمْرٍ لَّذَّةٍ لِّلشَّارِبِينَ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِّنْ عَسَلٍ مُّصَفًّى وَلَهُمْ فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ الثَّمَرَاتِ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ كَمَنْ هُوَ خَالِدٌ فِي النَّارِ وَسُقُوا مَاء حَمِيمًا فَقَطَّعَ أَمْعَاءهُمْ

SubhanAllah we discussed in Heavenly Hues which tree this ayah is referring to...it's none other than the nakhlah/date palm tree! And the evil tree is something that is found in deserts, colocynth is the name. InshaAllah you can do some research on why the scholars say it is the evil tree

Re: Parables in the Qur'an

"The similitude of those who spend their wealth in the way of God is that of a grain of corn that grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. God gives manifold increase to whom He pleases and God is All-sufficient for the needs of His creatures, All-knower" (2:261)

Re: Parables in the Qur'an

"The example of those who take allies other than Allah is like that of the spider who takes a home. And indeed, the weakest of homes is the home of the spider, if they only knew" Surah Al-Ankabut verse 41
