Parables in the Quran

Quran Verse
Certainly we have drawn for mankind in this Quran every kind of example so that they may think and take lessons. 39:27

About 80% of the input to our brain comes through our eyes. Parables are examples and analogies used in the Quran to help activate our imagination, the eye of the mind. They are usually told to illustrate a lesson and help us to understand and remember in a clear and easy way.

Activity: Become familiar with some Quranic parables by reading selected verses and talking about what they could mean and reflecting on what they teach us.

Titles of the Holy Quran

Quran verse: 
Shahru Ramadhan Alladhi Unzila Fihil Quran 2:185
The month of Ramadhan is one in which the Quran was sent down

The word Quran comes from the root Arabic letterق ر أ, meaning to recite or to read. The Quran is the most often recited book in the world!

Allah has mentioned many qualities of the Quran within the holy book itself and each of these titles tells us something about the Quran, helping us to know it better and build a clear picture that the Quran is more than just a book ‘to read and recite’. It is Huda a guide, shifa a healing, Bayyan a clear message, Kalamullah a word of God, and more.
