Summary Of The Surahs In 27th Para Of The Quran
1. Surat al-Dhariyat
- Surat al-Dhariyat, a series of swears about the wind, begins Juz 27.
- Wind is an essential component of life on Earth. It maintains the water cycle.
- The implied question is: because wind is life-giving and Allah created it, why don’t you accept Allah’s power to bring back the dead to life?
- Two more truths are highlighted: “And in the sky is your promised sustenance” (verse 22).
- Secondly, “We built the universe with our creative power, and We are ever-expanding it (verse 47).
- Could this be a reference to the expanding universe? The Makkans are reminded of their forefather Ibrahim, who was blessed with a kid in his old age so He can gift a child to an infertile couple.
- This is another example of the Quran challenging intellectual boundaries, making believing in the Resurrection difficult for the Makkans.
- Then a reminder of what happened to those who denied, as well as a warning that their fate may be the same if they continue to deny.
2. Surah Tur
- Para 27 continues with Surat al-Tur, a late Makkan Surah.
- It gives proof from nature and human history for the truth of Islamic beliefs.
- It begins with five powerful oaths as witnesses to the Prophet’s message and threatens Makkah’s disbelievers: “Your Lord’s punishment will certainly come to pass” (verse 7).
- Verse 21 validates the saying “you reap what you sow”; “each person is answerable for his deeds.”
- However, there is a compromise for virtuous people: their faithful offspring will join them in Paradise, even if they are not as righteous as their parents.
- The following passage raises thirteen difficult questions, ranging from challenging the misconception that the Prophet was a poet or a soothsayer to who holds the treasures of Allah.
3. Surah Najm
- Surah An-Najm was the first passage that the Prophet Muhammad openly preached before a gathering near the Ka’aba, and it had a profound effect on the assembled unbelievers.
- They were chastised for their belief in their false, numerous goddesses.
- They were chastised for adhering to their ancestors’ faith and traditions without challenging such views.
- Allah is the only Creator and Sustainer and does not require the “help” of false gods.
- Islam follows in the footsteps of previous prophets such as Abraham and Moses.
- It is not a new, alien faith that is being revived, but rather the religion of their predecessors.
- Unbelievers should not think of themselves as superior beings who will escape judgement.
4. Surah al-Qamar
- One night on the plains of Mina outside Makkah, the Prophet ﷺ was with a group of Quraysh, and they demanded a miracle, “split the moon into two parts, and we will believe”.
- Abdullah ibn Masood reports that the Prophet ﷺ raised his hands and lo and behold, it split into two parts.
- The Makkans were stunned, and quipped, “This is a powerful magic”.
5. Surah ar-Rahman
- Surah Ar-Rahman is an eloquent passage which elaborates on Allah’s mercy, and repeatedly asks the rhetorical question:
- “Then which of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?”
- Allah provides us with guidance on His path, an entire universe established in balance, with all of our needs met.
- All Allah asks of us is faith in Him Alone, and we will all face judgment in the end.
- Those who put their trust in Allah will receive the rewards and blessings promised by Allah.
6. Surah al-Waqiah
- It warns the Quraysh of the dire consequences of denial.
- The cataclysmic events of the Final Hour and the coming to pass of Judgement Day are described.
- That day people will be divided into three groups.
- Firstly, those blessed with an exquisite Paradise, who strived for the nearness of Allah.
- Next the group of the right hand who will live in a delightful Paradise, a rank below and the third group, the people of the left hand, living in Hell.
6. Surah al-Hadeed
- It encourages the giving of charity to achieve the nearness of Allah.
- Charity demonstrates a person’s faith in Allah and is an acknowledgment of His kindness.
- Charity is like giving a loan to Allah.
- In the Hereafter, it will be the light of the believers leading them to Paradise.
- The next section discusses the hypocrites, an uncharitable bunch, always in two minds, neither with the Muslims nor separate.
