Surah Jinn speaks of the praises that some Jinn lauded about the Qur’aan when they heard Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) reciting it. They believed in the Qur’aan and attested to Allaah’s oneness. The Surah also makes it clear that only Allaah possesses knowledge of the unseen. Of course, Allaah does impart a bit of this knowledge to His Ambiya (A.S) by means of divine revelation.
In Surah Muddathir, Allaah addresses Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) as the one who is shrouded in a blanket. Allaah commands Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) to propagate Islam and to hymn the praises of Allaah’s glory and grandeur. Allaah also commands Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) to abstain from all impurities and to behave kindly towards people without expecting anything in return. As in many previous Surahs, Allaah urges Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) to patiently endure the harassment of the kuffaar without retaliation. The Surah also stresses that the Qur’aan is a book of guidance that will benefit those people whom Allaah leads aright.
With a different word, Allaah again addresses Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) as one shrouded in a blanket. Allaah commands Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) to stand in salaah for half the night or less, and to recite the Qur’aan in slow measured tones. Worshipping Allaah during the night is an effective means of purifying the soul and readily accepted by Allaah. Allaah also encourages zakaah and spending in charity because any good deed will be of tremendous benefit in the Hereafter.
In Surah Qiyaamah Allaah instructs Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) that he should not exert himself to immediately repeat the words of revelation when it is revealed to him. He was to listen attentively, whereafter Allaah would ensure that he remembered everything.
Allaah says in Surah Dahar that He instilled the capacity to discern between right and wrong in every person. Man therefore has the choice to either be grateful to Allaah or ungrateful. However, the ungrateful will have to suffer punishment for their ingratitude while the grateful will be immensely rewarded with the eternal bliss of Jannah. Allaah lauds the Mu’mineen who, despite their own need, assist the needy without expecting remuneration or even a word of thanks in return.
