Surah Mumin (40) 01/05/2016

bismi_65

With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 40 (Mumin)

This Sura derives its name from verses 28-45 and deals with the individual’s witness to faith and virtue and his triumph in the end.  In essence it gives solace to the Muslims who were being persecuted, it warns the persecutors and foretells the triumph of truth and the failure of opposition to the truth.

Verse 1-2
“Ha Meem, The revelation of this Book is from Allah, exalted in power, full of knowledge.”

The revelation is associated with two interesting attributes of Allah SWT.  The first being Al- Azeez which signifies Allah’s authority/power and the second Al Aleem which signifies Allah’s infinite knowledge.   In other words the Quran reflects Allah’s authority and its contents are based on complete knowledge.   No addition or reduction to Allah’s words is necessary simply because He is Al-Aleem, the one with complete knowledge.

Surah Mu’min (23) 27/11/2015

bismi_65

With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 23 (The Believers)

Some lessons from the Prophets of Allah

Verse 30

Verily in this there are Signs (for men to understand); (thus) do We try (men).

Verses 23 to 50 mention the instructive biography of some of the great prophets such as Noah, Hud, Moses, and Jesus (peace be on them) as a few examples by mentioning certain aspects of their lives. A lesson we learn from the story of Nuh AS is:Those who fulfill their function with respect to Allah survive and prosper, and those who do not are annihilated, to be replaced by others.

Surah 23 (The Believers)

The Believers are successful

Verse 1
“Successful indeed are the believers”

This Sura mentions some of the attributes that lead to the salvation and deliverance of the believers from verses 1 to 11. These practical attributes are so comprehensive and accurate that they also cover various aspects of social and personal life. All of the acts mentioned in these verses that describe a believer (Humble in prayer, avoid vain talk, active in charity, abstain from unlawful sexual relations, observe their trusts, guard their prayers) are done for the sake of, or to attain to, purity.
A similar set of qualities are used to describe the servants of Allah and those that pray in Surah 25 and Surah 70.
