Like other languages, Urdu language is expanding and developing and those who study literature and history in historical order are well aware of this fact, which is the proof that Urdu language is a living language. This is the reason why while writing Zia-ul-Nabi (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) the distinguished author made a conscious effort to write the book in such a clean, smooth and refined language that all sections of the society would benefit from it</em><em>.</em></p> <p><em>In the biographical books written in Urdu language, Shamail Nabi </em><em>ﷺ </em><em>has been mentioned in a very beautiful way, but the style of love adopted by Pir Muhammad Karam Shah Al-Azhari is unique. In the style of "Zia-ul-Nabi". It has populated the world of taste and passion. Every page is a message of life in dark hearts. Every word gives eternal life to dead souls. This aesthetic aspect of the biography has been expressed by some other biographers, but in the work under review, this aspect has been specially taken into consideration.The author has mentioned the special condition that he feels while writing the lines in the discussion of Shamail Nabwi (peace be upon him). On the one hand, this gives an idea of the author's love and affection for these places. Biography is actually the honor and honor that Allah Almighty bestows on everyone who is a questioner of this street. Even the greatest honor and honor when he reaches this little love, he is like a beggar asking for mercy. There is hope for intercession.While narrating the various events of Shamail Mustafa, the use of language and idioms is a reason for more attraction for the reader. Ziya-ul-Nabi is a complete description of the universal personality of the Lord of the Universe, may God bless him and grant him peace</em>.</p> 2024-04-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Yasir Abbas قرآن و حدیث کی روشنی میں پھلوں کے انسانی زندگی پر اثرات 2024-01-19T15:49:56+00:00 Habib Ur Rehman <p><em>This study explores the effect of fruits on human health, it focuses on their nutritional, physiological and spiritual needs.

Ilm-ul-Mukhasma is the knowledge which refute the beliefs and evil doubts of the derailed and false groups/sects, to answer their arguments in a positive way and to project the truth (fact) and explanation of the truth so that vague and logical descriptive arguments are accepted by other party. We need to make biasness (difference) and let him misunderstand the mistake for this, Quran has dealt these misguided groups in detail or in short (briefly). The holy Quran is the source of guidance for everyone until the Day of Judgment (resurrection), so rejection (negation) of every wrong belief is in it. The details are the wrong beliefs of these derailed groups, refutation and logical rational arguments for such reasons which they practiced</em><em>. </em></p> <p><em>According to knowledge (science) of Mukhasma, the four derailed (misguided) groups of polytheists, the hypocrites, the Christians were arguments (debated) in the Holy Quran. Maulana Abdul Majeed Ludhianwi has narrated the verses of Ilm-ul-mukhasmah in his Tafseer (commentary)’’ Tibiyan- ul-furqan Fi Tafseer-al Quran’’ with significance and has provided satisfactory answers to their objections and claims (doubts). He has depicted right positions of Islam by giving comprehensive and logical reasoning answers.
