In the name of Allah, most Kind, most Merciful
Surah 73 (Muzammil)
*The Weighty Message*
Verses 5-6: “Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message. Truly the rising by night is most potent for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (framing) the Word (of Prayer and Praise).”
The revelation of the Quran is described as a “weighty message” and achieved the unthinkable, namely, transforming a society where slavery was common, children were buried alive and the sanctity and purity of the Kaaba was violated – to one of social and economic balance and justice. The purity of Allah as the Supreme authority and incomparable to anything and anyone was achieved. However, the first step was self-development and instead of wasting precious nighttime on frivolous activity, believers were required to study the Quran which was deemed essential to prepare for the challenges to follow. These lessons are still true for us today.
Continues tomorrow…Insha Allah
