Surah Shurah (42) 21/05/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merci

Sura 42 (Shura-Consultation)

The Quran a light

Verse 52: “And thus have We, by Our Command, sent inspiration to thee: thou knewest not (before) what was Revelation, and what was Faith; but We have made the (Qur’an) a Light, wherewith We guide such of Our servants as We will; and verily thou dost guide (men) to the Straight Way,-”

We learn here that the term Ummi Prophet (Unlettered Prophet) given to Muhammed (SAW) was due to him not being conversant in scripture and faith prior to Prophethood. However, with the coming of the Quran, this changed and he became the bearer of the light that was to illuminate the world and take people from the depths of darkness to light. It is also worthy to note that the inspiration of the Quran is here referred to as “Ruh” a life giving inspiration and also a “Nur” both highlighting the important objectives of the final message guiding people to the Straight Way.

Continues tomorrow…Insha Allah
