SURAH 46: SURAH AHQAAF

THE DUNES

A SUMMARY OF THE SURAH

The Surah contains the following:

The core theme is discussed in verses 27 and 28, where Allaah cautions the Makkans by telling them that He destroyed many nations outside Makkah like the Aad, the Thamud and others. The gods that they worshipped could not assist any of them when Allaah’s punishment overcame them.

A challenge to the Mushrikeen to present proofs to substantiate their beliefs.

SURAH 47: SURAH MUHAMMAD (SAW)

MUHAMMAD (SAW)

Now Surah Muhammad s encourages Muslims to fight for the cause of their belief in Towheed.

A SUMMARY OF THE SURAH

Surah Muhammad (SAW) may be divided into two parts in terms of its subject matter.

The first part contrasts the qualities of the Mu’mineen to those of the Mushrikeen, detailing the outcome of both parties. It also encourages Muslims to wage Jihaad, adding the reasons for Jihaad as well. This part of the Surah also makes mention of Towheed, for the propagation of which, Jihaad is waged.

The second part reproaches the Munaafiqeen (hypocrites) for their reluctance in physically participating in Jihaad and in contributing to it. The condition of the Munaafiqeen is then detailed at the end of the Surah.

SURAH 48: SURAH FATAH
THE VICTORY

A SUMMARY OF THE SURAH

This Surah may also divided into two parts. This part contains the following:

* Encouragement for Jihaad.
* Negation of Shirk, by encouraging Muslims to declare Allaah’s purity from all partners.

The second part repeats the subjects discussed in the first part. The Surah speaks about a significant dream of Rasulullaah s. In a dream, Rasulullaah s, saw himself and the Sahabah p entering the Masjidul Haraam to perform Umrah. However, when they left for Makkah to perform Umrah, they were prevented from entering Makkah at a place called Hudaybiyyah. The truth of the dream therefore came under question. In verse 27, Allaah replies to this question by saying that the dream was perfectly true, and that the Muslims will soon enter the Masjidul Haraam for Umrah the following year. The veracity of the dream cannot be questioned because the dream did not stipulate the year.

SURAH 49: SURAH HUJURAAT
THE ROOMS

A SUMMARY OF THE SURAH

This Surah may also be divided into two parts. This part contains the following two basic themes:
Showing respect to Rasulullaah s and the proper etiquette to be adopted when interacting with him.

* Etiquette of social interaction between Muslims.

The second part reproaches some villagers who declared their Imaan, regarding it to be a favour to Rasulullaah s. Allaah tells them that true Imaan means not doubting any part of faith and exerting oneself with one’s wealth in striving for the cause of Islam.

This part of the Surah also takes the message of Towheed further.
