About this episode

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi shares some of the wisdom and purpose of stories in the Qur'an and how it is an easy and simple method of driving essential points across for the Muslim Ummah to reflect and ponder.

"So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought." -Surat Al-Araf, verse 176

The Quranic stories do not have any of the details like the Biblical stories which is ideal from the point of view of driving a message through for easy comprehension.

There are three kinds of stories in the Qur'an:

  • Stories of the Prophets.
  • Stories of incidents and place and people.
  • Strories of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. 

Wisdom and benefits of stories:

  • Stories inspire us to derive good morals.
  • Stories help us to get affirmed in one’s resolve.
  • Helps us have role models.
  • Methodology of preaching and tactics to preach.
  • Serves as a warning for those who reject the Prophet ﷺ. 
  • Has lessons and ethics.
