BismillahirRahmanirRahim. Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

Dear student of the Noble Quran,

Assalamu’alaikum wr wb.

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

Previously you’ve learned the word,(َأَصْحَاب), (مَا), (يَوْم), (كَيْف) and (شَيْطَان). The HFW you will learn today is repeated for 80 times in the Quran. As of today you’ve learned 6 words from the Quran. Collectively these words are being used for 488 times in the Quran! MasyaAllah! Let’s continue reading!


Today, we learn about the word  (يَبَنِي) which means “O Children”.

Your 6th High Frequency Word of the Quran:

Aspire list of HFW Number: #95



Transliteration: Yaa Bani

Meaning: O Children

Meaning in Malay: Wahai Anak2

Frequency in the Quran: 80 times

First Mention in Quran: Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 40 (2:40)

Last Mention in Quran: Surah Abasa, Verse 36 (80:36)


In Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 40 (2:40), Allah says:
O Children of Israel remember my blessings which I have bestowed upon you,
and fulfill your promise to me, I shall fulfill my promise to you,
and to me alone should you be afraid


The word Bani in the phrase Ya Bani appears 80 times in the Quran and its not exclusive to Children of Israel only, it is also mentioned outside the context of Bani Israel. It’s an indication which emphasis on the importance of children. For they are the seed of next generation. They shall walk this earth, when we are underground looking up to them. It is important to for us to remind and train ourselves and our children to be grateful of the blessings from Allah.

The fall of Children of Israel is because they fail to remember the blessings of Allah on them, so let this be a lesson to us. And lets start counting our blessings WITH our children. Our children need our guidance. And because action speaks louder than words, they will follow our actions more than listen to what our words tell them. Counting our blessings with our children or being grateful is not only limited to saying alhamdulillah, or thank you Allah, it’s also about being a kind person to others, helping the neighbors, forgiving our friends and foes, and being patient and not complaining when we are in a difficult position.  Please search and read this verse in the Quran or on your mobile app today, and have a great day!
