Surah Ra’d (13) 05/08/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

The Surah gets its title from Verse 13 where Allah speaks of thunder being in awe of Him (“Nay, thunder repeats His praises”) telling us that all the forces in nature are not only subservient to Allah but are in awe of Him.

The Surah opens with Allah informing us that the Quran is the truth from Him but many among mankind do not believe in it.  Verse 1 “A.L.M.R. These are the signs (or verses) of the Book: that which has been revealed unto you from your Lord is the Truth; but most people believe not.” In verses 2-4 Allah turns our attention to the wonders in nature and if we reflect carefully upon them we will become convinced of Allah’s limitless power to resurrect us and call us to account for our actions on the day of Judgement.   Verse 3 “…He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law)! Each one runs (its course) for a term appointed. He doth regulate all affairs, explaining the signs in detail, that ye may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord.”
