Surah Noor (24) 15/12/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 24 (Nur)

24:58 O ye who believe! let those whom your right hands possess, and the (children) among you who have not come of age ask your permission (before they come to your presence), on three occasions: before morning prayer; the while ye doff your clothes for the noonday heat; and after the late-night prayer: these are your three times of undress: outside those times it is not wrong for you or for them to move about attending to each other: Thus does Allah make clear the Signs to you: for Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.

See also verses 59,60 and 61

Here the Quran shifts focus from discussing the political dimension to social customs and mannerisms at home.These verses instill in us respect for authority and norms of decency at home thereby paving the way for submitting to Allah’s laws in society on a national and international level much more easier.

Continues tomorrow InshaAllah…
