Surah Ma’arij (70) 24/11/2016

​With the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful 

Sura Ma’arij (70)

*Ways of Ascent*

70:1   A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall-

70:2   The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off, –

70:3   (A penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent.

70:4   The angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years.

This sura takes its title from verse 3 where Allah(swt) is referred to as the Lord of the Ways of Ascent.  Allah has granted us the Ways of Ascent i.e. the means of exalting ourselves. The Ways of Ascent enable all things to advance, evolve and become what they are destined to be. This is a means by which individuals and nations can progress and develop if they live by revelation. However, some of these stages may take a long period of time.

Continues tomorrow InshaAllah

Salaam / Peace
