Surah Saffat (37) 08/04/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Sura 37 (Saffat)

The orderly arrangement of Believers

Verses 1-4

“By those who range themselves in ranks, And so are strong in repelling (evil),  And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah), Verily, verily, your God is one.”

The Sura is named “Saffaat” meaning the ranks and referring to those who are arranged or being in order which in turn alludes to a well organised community or society.   This well organised community not only resists and prevents evil but also reminds people of Allah’s message and in particular Allah’s oneness. Allah’s oneness means His absolute authority which is manifested in our daily lives through living in accordance with His revelation.   Of importance is for believers to apply the principles of “Saffat” or orderly arrangement in our social and political lives and utilise the benefits thereof to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.
