We use the words Quran and Kithaab. To all of us (or to most of us), both words mean the same. But then why have 2 words?

It is amazing how much new information, that makes sense, is learnt just by asking these seemingly simple questions.

This is a must read!

Please Note
1.
 
I have had the great privilege, (since Aug 2010), of presenting talks on the weekly Radio Program
‘Culture of Islam’
[
Every Friday 8 to 8.30 pm, Radio Sri Lanka - FM 97.4
]2.
 
Since these are Radio Talks, I refer to, or address the audience as ‘listeners’
 3.
 
I am well aware that the audience to these talks would consist of people belonging to a variety of faiths. So as to make people of all faiths feel included, I very often use words and names that arecommon to all religions.4.
 
For these reasons, I use the name GOD, as well as Abraham, Moses, Jesus etc as well as thenames Allah, Ibrahim (Alaihis Salaam), Moosa (Alaihis Salaam), Easa (Alaihis Salaam) etc5.
 
Muslims by habit usually say ‘Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam’, when the name of Prophet Muhammadis mentioned, and ‘A
laihis Salaam' when the name of a Prophet is mentioned. However, in theseseries of talks I have reduced the use of these prayers & sayings to the bare minimum.6.
 
Muslims, also by habit, use a number of Arabic prayers or sayings, such as Alhamdulillah, InshaAllah and so on. Again, I have reduced the use of these prayers or sayings to the bare minimum.7.
 
Sometimes I have to write Arabic words in the English script.I have devised my own way of writing Arabic in English, as follows;

110 Thje Phrase
Zaalikal Kithaab
 
Dear Friends,Assalamu Alaikum,Alhamdulillah, during the last few weeks, I have been reading Aayaths from the Holy Quran andtrying to work out
it’s
message through also reading the other many connected Aayaths in theQuran.I am now reading the 1
st
5 Aayaths of Surah Baqarah and discussing these Aayaths through the phrases that make up these Aayaths. I pointed out eleven such phrases in these 5 Aayaths.My intention is to take a phrase or two a week, but these phrases may not necessarily be in theorder that they appear in these Aayaths. For example, last week I spoke on the phrases
Yu’minoona bil ghaib (believe in the unseen)
and Laa Raiyba Feehi (there is no doubt in it)
Yu’minoona bil ghaib is part of the first phrase in the third Aayath
and Laa Raiyba Feehi is thesecond phrase in the 2nd Aayath.Today, I wish to discuss the first phrase in the second Aayath
 – 
Zaalikal Kithaab
 – 
 
meaning ‘that book’ Two weeks ago too I discussed this phrase, but then I concentrated on the word Zaalika.
Today I hope to concentrate on the word Kithaab.The word Kithaab means book. However regarding the Quran, God uses more than one word.I like to discuss three of them.These words are the Kithaab, the Quran and the Aayaths.Kithaab means Book, Quran means the reading or the recitation and Aayath means Signs.There are over 6,000 Aayaths in the Quran and since the language in the Quran is so eloquent, people recognize it as high quality poetry, and thus mistakenly refer to the word Aayaths as versesof the Quran. This is not correct. Each Aayath that we read from the Quran is actually the Signs of God. Now, the purpose of these talks or the series of talks where I discuss the 1
st
5 Aayaths in SurahBaqarah is to study how amazing the Quran really is. All Aayaths are the signs of God and theQuran answers many fundamental questions that Man has been asking right through history andwill always be asking till the end of this world.To many of us, even to Muslims, though we read the Quran, we cannot understand what theQuran is actually instructing us. The language and the wording is difficult for us to get around,however, if we were to devote time to reading and then meditating on its Aayath then gradually,Insha Allah, the deeper meanings or the deeper significance that these Aayaths are pointing out tous, would begin to emerge.Believe me, it is a very interesting exercise, as all you listeners would know by now, I like todescribe it as an intellectually stimulating exercise. Now, before getting on to discussing the phrase Zaalikal Kithaab, I would like to very brieflydescribe some of the points that I spoke on last week,
from the phrases Yu’minoona bil ghaib
(believe in the unseen) and Laa Raiyba Feehi (there is no doubt in it)
