High Frequency Word of The Quran #58: أَمْ


Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

Dear student of the Noble Quran,

It gives me great pleasure to share with you High Frequency Words from the Quran and its wisdom everyday.

Previously you’ve learned 42 High Frequency Words from the Quran, yesterday’s HFW being (مُوْسَى) . The HFW you will learn today is repeated for 136 times in the Quran. As of today you’ve learned 43 words from the Quran. Collectively these words are being used for 4429 times in the Quran! MasyaAllah! Let’s continue reading!


Today’s HFW is a good tool to use to provide ourselves with options. Especially when we are experiencing a negative state, always provide yourself with options by telling yourself you have A CHOICE!

Today’s HFW is (أم) which means “or”. When we are in a negative state we feel that it is “natural” to allow ourselve to react negatively, but if we are wise we can remind ourselves that there is always options: 1- To do something negative OR 2- To do something positive OR 3- To do nothing neutral until we are conscious of the better choice.

When we are in a positive state, theres always options to be thankful or to forget, choose to be thankful. When we are in a negative state theres always options to be patient or to be angry or sad, choose to be patient. Choose to be with Allah.

Your 43rd High Frequency Word of the Quran:

Aspire list of HFW Number: #58


Transliteration: am

Meaning: or

Meaning in Malay: atau

Frequency in the Quran: 136 times

First Mention in Quran: Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 6 (2:6)

Last Mention in Quran: Surah An-Naazi’at, Verse 27 (79:27)

Surah At-Taubah, Verse 109 (9:109):


“Then is one who laid the foundation of his building on righteousness [with fear] from Allah and [seeking] His approval better OR (ْأَم) one who laid the foundation of his building on the edge of a bank about to collapse, so it collapsed with him into the fire of Hell? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.” 



When your mind tells you to do something negative always tell yourself you have a choice by using the word “OR”. Example: “Let’s pray later.” Immidiately continue with OR, “OR, I can pray now and show Allah that I really appreciate HIM, and I am consistent to stay in my position” .

When we accept the position as the servant of Allah, the world will always give an option for us to malperform. Choose to be consistent, it is always the best option in the long run.
