Surah Zukhruf (43) 22/05/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 43 (Zukhruf – Golden adornments)

This Sura obtains its title from Verse 35 where the word zukhruf or golden adornments is mentioned. The Sura informs us of the dangers of materialism and people infatuated therewith offer the greatest resistance to Allah’s message.

Verses 1-3 “Ha – Meem. By the Book that makes things clear, We have made it a Qur’an in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom)”

The Sura opens its case by informing us of an important characteristic of the Quran, that is – it makes things clear. Amongst all of the confusion that was prevalent during the time of our Prophet the Quran came to set the record straight and liberate those who subscribed to it. In verse 3 we are told that Allah revealed it in the language of its recipients which is Arabic so that people could ponder upon its message. By pondering and reflecting on the message people were able to grasp it and transform their lives accordingly and by doing so they became a successful generation of world leaders. Muslims today are in dire need of this and our only solution is to go back to the Quran, reflect upon it and live it.
