    Hi good people of the Islam DIR,

    I was just wondering if you guys have a favorite Surah from the Qur'an, whether you admire the composition of it, the message in it, or the impact it's had in your spiritual life. Mine is the very short Surah al-Kafiroon and the start of Surah al-Baqarah, but I want to get to know the Qur'an better.

    So, what're your favorites? :D

    Peace be with you, Shiranui117

    I have grown to love the Qur'an in its' entirety, so it's an hard ask for me to choose a particular Surah after reading the exegetical data and knowing the historicity and anthropology of its revelation.

    But since I'm being asked to share something, I will share with you Sural Al Mulk, The chapter titled The Kingdom:



    Beautiful isn't it?

    I wish I could also give you the time to give you its exegetes as well, but for the first experience, I want you to follow the cotext and context by yourself.

    God bless.

    My favorite (and the most important) is Surah Al-Fatihah

    "I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Satan...."


    In the name of God, The infinitely compassionate and the most merciful

    All praise (and salutations) are due to Allah (The GOD) the Lord of all the worlds,

    The most merciful and compassionate,

    Master of the Day of Judgement,

    Thee do we worship and thine aid do we seek

    Show us the straight way

    The way on whom thou hast bestowed thy grace

    those whose (portion) is not wrath and who

    not go astray..

    Ameen



    This verse is perhaps the heart of Islam, this verse implies the acknowledgment of God as the author of the worlds both this material plane and the hereafter and although I'm an openly agnostic-theist this Surah has drawn me. I guess cause I've gone astray in my life and many times have asked God to put me on the straight path.

    Hi Shir :) ,

    There are quite a few chapters I love to read and listen to. These are a couple of them..ArRahmaan, Maryam,Luqman,Muminuun, Baqarah, Ta Ha
    I mostly admire the message and the impact it had on my life( spiritually) .
    Many of the verses in these chapters are about God's attributes,mercy,kindness,gratitude,the hereafter,patience,reflection on the creation of God.

    Bumping this thread because I've been reading my copy of the Quran quite a bit recently and find this thread (could be) helpful (as a non-Muslim)

    I feel like asking which verses from the Al-Quran are your favourites is like asking a mother, which of your children do you prefer more, although I guess some verses do speak to an individual more than others...

    one of the verses which touched me profoundly go along the lines of "He is the Creator and Provider of what they consume, yet they do not worship Him and do they not see how much of an injustice it is?"

    Surah 81 is pretty astounding!:


    (Hard to find a good site to copy it from, cause I read from my physical copy(s) (as I suppose we all would?)


    I am coming to love Islam more and more, but I am one that would be considered heretical to the average Muslim. I'm coming to realize the immense problems with the Hadith and how little Islam generally actually has to do with the Quran (word of God/Allah).

    There are so many great Surahs in the Quran (as to say, quite a few that speak very deeply to me, compared to other ones). There is a massive pool of knowledge, wisdom and guidance contained within this book and I am starting to grow a great passion for it :)

    To me, practically all the the latter 3rd of the Quran (the shorter Surahs) are absolutely divine, and speak to me with immense power. All Surahs are important of course but some strike as more personally relevant than others, as some are more historical than others etc
