The Illuminating Lamp


the Resembling Verses

of the Magnificent Qur’an



 الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأرْضَ وَجَعَلَ الظُّلُمَاتِ وَالنُّورَ


 الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَنْزَلَ عَلَى عَبْدِهِ الْكِتَابَ وَلَمْ يَجْعَلْ لَهُ عِوَجَا

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأرْضِ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ فِي الآخِرَةِ وَهُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْخَبِيرُ

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ فَاطِرِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأرْضِ جَاعِلِ الْمَلائِكَةِ رُسُلا أُولِي أَجْنِحَةٍ مَثْنَى وَثُلاثَ وَرُبَاعَ يَزِيدُ فِي الْخَلْقِ مَا يَشَاءُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي هَدَانَا لِهَذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِيَ لَوْلا أَنْ هَدَانَا اللَّهُ

    SUBHAN’ALLAH!!! May Allah reward you bro!!!! I was actually going to start and make my own and then i thought of Googling it to see if someone has already started it! Alhamdulillah, when do you plan to finish?

  2. the middle road says:

    Wa alaikum salaam

    Jazakallahu khair and Ameen to your dua. I don’t know really when it will be done. I’ve kind of slacked off lately. 😮 Should get back to it insha Allah.

  3. Zakir says:


    I don’t know which method you’re using, however i thought i’d share with you an idea which came to mind, if you’re not using it already!

    If you go on to, on which they have a phonetic Qur’an search. So if you type in any Qur’anic word – in english – all the verses that contain that word will be shown.

  4. the middle road says:


    That’s how I’ve been doing it.

  5. husain says:

    This work has actually already been done.

    People have already made books on Mutashabihat

    I bet if you ask some scholars who studied overseas
    , they could to direct to these books.

  6. the middle road says:

    Yeah, I know. 🙂 But I don’t think there’s anything available on the Net.

    Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahe wa barakatuh,

    Brother I have a request for a document (Mutashabihat.doc) you have posted on another site.

    If you could email me back (ASAP preferably) or some how get the document accessible because I was unable to register at

    JazakaAllahu Khairan and may Allah (SWT) accept and reward your hard efforts.

  16. the middle road says:

    I’ve compiled all the ajza’ completed so far into one zip file. You can download it here.

    Ameen at your dua. 🙂

  17. Ashfaq Hussain says:

    Jazak-Allah my dear brother for your huge effort. I had been looking for the Mutashabihaat for years, I pray to Allah that you get to finish the remaining Juz easily.

  18. khaldun says:

    Assalamu Alaikum

    The books in arabic concerning this topic are vast and to many to name.

    One that I like that is simple and straight forward is written by our own Muhaddith of Madeenah Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbaad.

    Other books are even more detailed though, they dont just tell you the mutashabihaat but also tell you how to distinguish then.

    I would give an example here but it will take to long to explain.

  19. SOD says:

    I had a Quran specially compiled for all the Mutashabihat in Pakistan, very helpful for Hafiz-e-Quran. It would tell you with reference where the similar verses or Mutashabihat comes. Sadly I lost it as when I was abroad my family gifted it to someone, but I know they are easily available in the local market. Thanks
