In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

I think it is time I organise my learning and be a bit more systematic. Today I am learning Surah Al-Ikhlas (The Sincerity). It is the 112th Surah (chapter) of the 114 Surahs of the Qur'an. It has four verses.
Say, "He is God, One".
"God, the Eternal, Absolute".
"He begets not, nor is He begotten".
"And there is none like Him".
I learned that the term "as-samad" (the eternal, absolute) occurs only once in the Qur'an and is applied to God alone.
