With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 24 (The Light)
Establishing the moral fabric of society
Sura Nur primarily deals with social matters and lays down certain laws
aimed at creating social harmony. The protection of the moral fabric of
society is of primary importance in Islam. Hence the Sura opens with a
statement informing us that the Quran is fard upon us, its laws are
ordained and made obligatory upon Believers.
Verse 1 “A sura which We have sent down and which We have ordained in it
have We sent down Clear Signs, in order that you may receive admonition”.
The verse further informs us that the ayaat (verses) are clear, meaning
that the laws are unequivocal and or self explanatory. The reason for the
Quran being clear and or unequivocal is explained in the last part of the
ayat “in order that you may receive admonition”. Hence Allah SWT, through
His infinite mercy, has made the Quran accessible to everyone, the question
remains will we take heed?
Cross reference Sura 54:32 “And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to
understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?”
