Sura Al-Jathiyah (45) 14/07/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 45 (AL-Jathiyah)

The humbling experience on Judgement day

Verses 28-29 “And thou wilt see every sect bowing the knee: Every sect will be called to its Record: “This Day shall ye be recompensed for all that ye did!. “This Our Record speaks about you with truth: For We were wont to put on Record all that ye did.”

Those who oppose Allah’s message of justice and God consciousness are deceived by their evil ways. This causes them to behave arrogantly without humbling themselves before Allah SWT and showing disdain to His message. However on judgement day these same people will be brought to their knees by the fact that all of their actions were meticulously recorded and that they have to account for it. The word “jathiyah” (after which the sura is named) is used here to denote people being brought to their knees, in other words being brought to a lowly position.
