hfwslides updated2


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 13 High Frequency Words from the Quran, yesterday’s HFW being (مَال). The HFW you will learn today is repeated for 87 times in the Quran. As of today you’ve learned 14 words from the Quran. Collectively these words are being used for 1165 times in the Quran! MasyaAllah! Let’s continue reading!

Today’s HFW of The Quran means “example/model/parable”.

To be successful, everyone needs a working model for success, we need financial model to be financially successful, we need a business model to be successful in business, we need a model for everything so that we can follow and model after it. For us, Rasulullah s.a.w. is the Best Model of all time, and our First Life Coach!

While last HFW talks about wealth/property; Today’s HFW talks about model, there’s a lot of model and examples in the Quran, that we can observe, follow or model after, so that we can lead our lives to jannah. There are also models we need to run away from to protect ourselves from the wrath of Allah.

Today’s word is (مَثَل)  which means example/model. Models are like metaphors, they serve as hidayah for us and light our path towards real success.

Your 13th High Frequency Word of the Quran:

Aspire list of HFW Number: #87


Transliteration: Masal

Meaning:  Example/Model

Meaning in Malay: Contoh/Perumpamaan

Frequency in the Quran: 87 times

First Mention in Quran: Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 2 (2:17)

Last Mention in Quran: Surah Al-Insan, Verse 28 (76:28)


In Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 261 (2:261), Allah says:

” The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing. “

2_261 (1)

Models and examples are enlightenment from Allah when we come across in the Quran we need to ponder and try to apply the model in our Life. Rasulullah s.a.w. is also  a great model to follow. By following him financially, spiritually, emotionally, we will be successful in this life and hereafter insyaAllah!

In the verse above Allah s.w.t. provide for us a model, also an example, if we follow this model/we will get the same result. The model/example is that when we spend in the path of Allah s.w.t., this action is like planting one seed that in the end will multiply to 700 seeds.

All of us spend, we spend money, we spend time, we spend our skills, and expertise, what ever transaction we do we are spending the difference is in the intention. If our intention is to please Allah s.w.t. then what that means is that we have place ourselves in the correct position in the eyes of Allah s.w.t. and that is as His servant. At the same time what that means is that we are acknowledging Allah s.w.t. as our One True Master, because Allah s.w.t. is a gracious and noble Master, He will always multiply our effort and 700 is the least and there is not limit to the benevolent of Allah s.w.t.

Please search and read this verse in the Quran or on your mobile app today, and have a GUIDED day!
