High Frequency Word of The Quran #67: بَلْ



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 33 High Frequency Words from the Quran, yesterday’s HFW being (يَد) . The HFW you will learn today is repeated for 122 times in the Quran. As of today you’ve learned 34 words from the Quran. Collectively these words are being used for 3244 times in the Quran! MasyaAllah! Let’s continue reading!


Today’s HFW, is tricky to explain but good to understand. Understanding it will help you to be more conscious of your own thought process, and internal communication. Knowing how to apply it correctly will transform you to be a productive person, and person who is always focus on solution rather than the problem.

Today’s HFW is (ْبَل), which means “BUT” or “INSTEAD”. We observe this word is usually used in making excuses, debate, or arguement.

But, if used consciously it will open door of possibilities, that we are not aware was there.

Our actions stem from our thoughts, and we use words to produce and moderate them.

Sometimes life brings us to a dead end. And we think that there is nothing that we can do, BUT when we use this WORD and continue with the word ALLAH after it, the door will appear.

Example: Your mind says “I really don’t know how to do this!” And your trained consciousness says: “But Allah is the best guidance and His guidance comes in perfect timing”

InsyaAllah, when we say this affirmation with strong belief, we shall witness miracle.

As believers and servants of Allah s.w.t. we believe that Allah will always be there for us. Allah wants us to learn, and discover the strength HE bestowed within us.
