Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalamin

Was Salaatu was Salaamu ala Rasulillah

This is for the Hafiz and for the one who is studying towards reaching that rank. It is a list of the Mutashabihat of the Holy Quran. The word Mutashabihat is used here in the sense understood by the Huffaz, and not in the manner understood in the science of Ulum al-Quran. An ayah which closely resembles another one is called a Mutashabih. It is very tempting for the one who is memorising the Quran to ignore these ayat and to overlook them. But if he truly wants to know the Quran well, then it is imperative that he know which ayat are similar to other ones and the differences between them as well as where these ayat are to be found in the Quran, because it is said that the excellence of ones memorisation will be according to the excellence of ones knowledge of the Mutashabihat. The aim of this list is to assist in that endeavour. My advice would be to use this list to identify which ayat are regarded as Mutashabihat and then next to those ayat, pencil in the reference for the other ayat which are similar to it in the margin of your mushaf. When learning these ayat one should also learn the others which closely resemble it and pay particular attention to the similarities and differences between them. It is also important to know the location of each ayah.

May Allah (swt) make it easy for all the students of Hifz and may He increase the Huffaz in their knowledge of the Quran, Ameen.

    Assalamu-alaykum brother

    JazakAllah for that info!
    I have a question though, do you know any online ilamic websites that would sell Qur’ans with the mutashabbihat already underlined? I have one already with the mutashabbihat printed out in red (and it tells you which page the ayah is repeated again). Very useful, but I want to get another one for a hifz student.
    JazakAllah khair

    Assalamu alaikum

    Are you sure it’s not working? Because I just tested it and it did work.

    If you need it urgently you could just use this website to type in the part of the ayah that you want to find.

    Wa alaikum salaam wa rahmatullah

    Please see the link in the post above. If you are referring to the terms “Mutashabihat” and “Muhkamat” as defined in the science of ‘Ulum al-Qur’an and not in Hifz, then unfortunately I’m not able to help with that.
