Grammar in Quran - Changing of Tenses

A common theme in the Qur'an is the consistent change of tense in the structure of a Surah. Allah (subḥānahu wa ta'āla) will begin a verse in third-person and shortly after the proceeding verses will narrate from the first-person.

When the average English speaking individual reads a translation of the Book of Allah this sudden shift in narrative is seen as grammatically incorrect, which often makes them question the Divine Speech of Allah (subḥānahu wa ta'āla) and consider it... flawed with grammatical errors.

In this special Ramadan series episode of the Tafsir of Surat al-Fātiĥah Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi discusses the eloquence of the verse 'Īyāka Na`budu Wa 'Īyāka Nasta`īn, and clarifies the misunderstanding of applying the grammatical rules of English to the Divine Speech of Allah (subḥānahu wa ta'āla) written in Arabic.

Learn and benefit from this great series and transform your prayer so that it's never the same again, in sha Allah!
