Surah Muzammil (73) 07/12/2016

In the name of Allah, most Kind, most Merciful
Surah 73 (Muzammil)
*Read as much of the Quran as is easy for you*
Verse 20: “Thy Lord doth know that thou standest forth (to prayer) nigh two-thirds of the night, or half the night, or a third of the night, and so doth a party of those with thee. But Allah doth appoint night and day in due measure He knoweth that ye are unable to keep count thereof. So He hath turned to you (in mercy): read ye, therefore, of the Qur’an as much as may be easy for you. He knoweth that there may be (some) among you in ill-health; others travelling through the land, seeking of Allah’s bounty; yet others fighting in Allah’s Cause, read ye, therefore, as much of the Qur’an as may be easy (for you); and establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity; and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan. And whatever good ye send forth for your souls ye shall find it in Allah’s Presence,- yea, better and greater, in Reward and seek ye the Grace of Allah: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” 
The phrase “read as much of the Quran as easy for you” is repeated twice highlighting the centrality of the Quran in the lives of earliest believers and secondly emphasizes individual choice and encouragement to choose the easiest of options. Allah (SWT) is Most Merciful to us.
Continues tomorrow…Insha Allah
