Surat an-Nur – 24:41 -Wrong explanation by scholars

                  

I discovered that back in 1982. Again the Quran is not wrong in the Arabic form. But in the mistakes is found in so many English translation of it.But in this specific verse ; ” Surat An Nur. 24 :41″. Also those who explain the text ( Tafseer made same mistake) Calling the Birds as it is , while God meant Angels.

   أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالطَّيْرُ صَافَّاتٍ كُلٌّ قَدْ عَلِمَ صَلَاتَهُ وَتَسْبِيحَهُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ

  Do not you see that Allah – glorify Him whoever (is) in the heavens and the earth and the birds (with) wings outspread? Each one verily knows its prayer and its glorification. And Allah (is) All-Knower of what they do.

“Surat An Nur. 24 :41.”

Other translation. 24:41.

See you not (O Muhammad ) that Allah, He it is Whom glorify whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, and the birds with wings out-spread (in their flight). Of each one He (Allah) knows indeed his Salat (prayer) and his glorification, [or everyone knows his Salat (prayer) and his glorification], and Allah is All-Aware of what they do.               

There are more then 55 English version of the translation and all mentioned Birds. More then dozen scholars and hundreds of books also mentioned about the birds.And all the Tafseer books ( Explaining the Quran and God words ) They all said the verse talking about the birds.!  You can log in and read about all these to compare some old , some new and some considered high rank scholars!.

God was not talking about birds in this specific verse at all. He was talking about the Angels . Many times God mentioned the birds and some times mentioned the angels .But this is the only verse ( Aya)  in the Quran where God meant Angels by using the birds name.Cause if he put the word Angel in Arabic ( Malyeka) it will change the ( wazen) the verse balance.

All the scholars and those who mentioned the meaning of the verse in there books  were wrong in tafseer ( explaining ) this verse. They quoted God wrongly,  with out knowing ,and In-deliberately .So Let me explain to you what God meant in this verse after more than 1400 years of not knowing the truth about this verse in the Quran.

Praise be to Allah, the Bringer into Being of the heavens and earth, He Who made the angels messengers, with wings – two, three or four. He adds to creation in any way He wills. Allah has power over all things. (Surah Fatir, 1)

The heavens are all but rent asunder from above when the angels glorify their Lord with praise and ask forgiveness for those who are on the earth. Allah is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful (Surat ash-Shura, 5.

Everything in the heavens and every creature on the earth prostrates to Allah, as do the angels. They are not puffed up with pride. They fear their Lord above them and do everything they are ordered to do. (Surat an-Nahl, 49-50

 The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME.” And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever.

 Wings if any are made of light. Most Angels appeared to human as men with no wings but some do.and the Quran, the bible descried those wings. Because Angels created from light they must have wings made from light also.So they can be used when the need them. And that why I thought about those birds in this verse as an Angels beacsue God mentioned them in the Quran in Surat ( verse ) Al NUR .24:41.  AL NUR , OR AN NUR  , Noor  it mean THE LIGHT IN Arabic .So God use this verse to describe those Birds .( saffat ) means those angels are side by side from the word Saff. Straight line of Angels, with there wings down and and closed side by side and making Blessing to God ( Sallat and Tasbeeh).As respect to God the Creator .Those Angels with wings can not even talk with out God permission .The angels always pray to God and glorify him. like other creatures they do there blessing and tasbeeh to God but we do not understand how they do it or there language.But in this Verse or AN NUR , God is talking about the Angels and not regular birds. Also It make sense if we read the Arabic Gramer 

   أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالطَّيْرُ صَافَّاتٍ كُلٌّ قَدْ عَلِمَ صَلَاتَهُ وَتَسْبِيحَهُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ

Why God didn’t use the word Angels ( wal malaekato)?  AS if God used the words Angels( wal malekato ) instead ( waltyero)  it will change the grammar of the Quran and the Miracle of the words . As Al mlaekato from ( mafa3elon , mafa3elton) while the word must be in ( wal tayr =فعل (fa3al ) .So this is Miracle it self of using this description of the birds in this verse of the light.AN NUR. To make a beautiful comparison between the birds and the angels. Other wise it will destroy the Arabic Awzan ( Arabic verbs) .Every thing must be balanced ( Awzan).

Praise be to Allah, the Bringer into Being of the heavens and earth, He Who made the angels messengers, with wings – two, three or four. He adds to creation in any way He wills. Allah has power over all things. (Surah Fatir, 1). God described those angels with wings.

You will see the angels circling round the Throne, glorifying their Lord with praise. It will be decided between them with truth. And it will be said: ‘Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.’ (Surat az-Zumar, 75)

Everything in the heavens and every creature on the earth prostrates to Allah, as do the angels. They are not puffed up with pride. They fear their Lord above them and do everything they are ordered to do. (Surat an-Nahl, 49-50)

Truly We sent it down on the Night of Power. And what will convey to you what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. In it the angels and the Spirit descend by their Lord’s authority with every ordinance. It is Peace -until the coming of the dawn. (Surat al-Qadr, 1-5)

And Heaven will be split apart, for that Day it will be very frail. The angels will be gathered round its edge. On that Day, eight will bear the Throne of their Lord above their heads. (Surat al-Haqqa, 16-17)

The Day when Heaven is split apart in clouds, and the angels are sent down rank upon rank. The Kingdom that Day will belong in truth to the All-Merciful. It will be a hard Day for the disbelievers. (Surat al-Furqan, 25-26)

And your Lord arrives with the angels rank upon rank and that Day Hell is produced, that Day man will remember; but how will the remembrance help him? (Surat al-Fajr, 22-23)

13:13The thunder exalts [ Allah ] with praise of Him – and the angels [as well] from fear of Him – and He sends thunderbolts and strikes therewith whom He wills while they dispute about Allah ; and He is severe in assault.

Angels and Birds

MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE. God send the holly spirit as a white dove.

We cannot imagine these wings and how they look. They are not like the wings of the birds. It is not even permissible to hold a comparison between their wings and those of birds. The resemblance of their wings to those of birds is only in the name but not in their essence. They are pure light as God created them from Light.

 The bible mentioned the birds in so many verses , you can read them here

     about falling angels ;

Birds teach us Divine principles.”Like Hud Hud SULEIMAN.  

who told him about the kingdom of Sheba. The Raven who showed Cain how to buried his brother. 

I hope people who read the Quran and the Bible read with open mind.Read after you seek the facts, science, knowledge , history and read all of the books cover to cover to make comparison and to correlate things.

Thank you very much for reading the truth.  

This finding will be on YOU-TUBE.

Birds have feeling, Dont kill or hunt them.They like a little angels among us and they make our life beautiful. If you have cats  make sure you control your cats t not kill the birds.

    Quran is a simple book designed for a common man…when Allah is saying birds,then it’s birds,not angels …. every animal,birds,heavens,earth whatever Allah created has their own ways of worshipping Allah,So why do u want to twist that verse of bird and fit the word angels instead of bird?do u think birds do not worship Allah?

    • Steve Ramsey Steve Ramsey says:

      NO, of course, this is not what I meant, everything in his creation as in the Quran is worshiping God and make tasbeeh to him but we do not
      understand their tasbeeh . But Allah mentioned that in this sura differently and meaning the Angels that no angels will be allowed to talk at the judgment day only by Allah operation the angels will stand still along all other creatures and their wings and head in submission gesture from the fear of Allah.
      Many scholars have no idea about many different verses if the rasool mohammed 3S didnt mentioned they should not make assumptions.
