Organs of the body with a reflection of their use in Quran. May Allah allow us all benefit


أعين / عيون
a`aun / o`aoun

أذن / آذان
udhun/ aadhaan


فم أو فو / أفواه
fum / foo (this is the word used in Quran as I will Insh a Allah present later / afwah

Yad / ayeden or ayadi
Hand / hands

رجل/ أرجل
rejl/ arjul

قدم / أقدم

“Have they feet wherewith they walk? Or have they hands wherewith they hold? Or have they eyes wherewith they see? Or have they ears wherewith they hear? Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): “Call your (so-called) partners (of Allâh) and then plot against me, and give me no respite!” (Quran 7:195)

“Alahum arjulun yamshoona biha am lahum aydin yabtishoona biha am lahum aAAyunun yubsiroona biha am lahum athanun yasmaAAoona biha quli odAAoo shurakaakum thumma keedooni fala tunthirooni”

“Do they not then think deeply in the Qur’ân, or are their hearts locked up (from understanding it)?” (Quran 47:24)
N.B A comment to be made: Notice that we understand with out hearts not minds. So the heart needs to be free of all impediaments which may hinder the receipient of Allah’s light

“Afala yatadabbaroona alqur-ana am AAala quloobin aqfaluha”

“Have they not travelled through the land, and have they hearts wherewith to understand and ears wherewith to hear? Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts (the proper word in Arabic here would be chests that is where the heart are located) that grow blind.” (Quran 22:46)

“Afalam yaseeroo fee al-ardi fatakoona lahum quloobun yaAAqiloona biha aw athanun yasmaAAoona biha fa-innaha la taAAma al-absaru walakin taAAma alquloobu allatee fee alssudoori”
N.B. Again this Ayah presents the importance of hearts with which we even see

“O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitânah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts (again here chests must be used) conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayât (proofs, evidence, verses) if you understand” (Quran 3:118)

“Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo la tattakhithoo bitanatan min doonikum la ya/loonakum khabalan waddoo ma AAanittum qad badati albaghdao min afwahihim wama tukhfee sudooruhum akbaru qad bayyanna lakumu al-ayati in kuntum taAAqiloona”
