IQRA PRESENTS…
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS – MOUNT SINAI 2019

(وَمَا كُنتَ بِجَانِبِ الطُّورِ إِذْ نَادَيْنَا وَلَٰكِن رَّحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ لِتُنذِرَ قَوْمًا مَّا أَتَاهُم مِّن نَّذِيرٍ مِّن قَبْلِكَ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ)
And you were not at the side of the mount when We called [Moses] but [were sent] as a mercy from your Lord to warn a people to whom no warner had come before you that they might be reminded. (al-Qurān 28:46)

Do they then not travel through the Earth, so that their minds gain wisdom and their ears thus learn to hear? (al-Qurān 22:46)
