Ramadan 2008 (The Blessed Month)


Surah Dhuha

Surah ad-Dhuha (The Morning Light) was revealed during the early days of the Prophet's (S.A.W) mission. In this period he was worried that Hazrat Jibra'eel (A.S) did not come with any Revelations for some time. The unbelievers of Makkah started to tease the Prophet (S.A.W), saying that his Lord had abandoned him.

Allah (S.W.T) assures the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) that He can never leave him being His most perfect model for humanity. Allah (S.W.T) being the Most Merciful can never be Angry with His great Prophet (S.A.W) who is also Rahmatul-lil-Aalameen (Mercy unto Mankind).

Allah (S.W.T) also assures the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) that every tomorrow of his is better than today, meaning that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) status will ever increase till he occupies the highest seat of Maqaam-e-Mahmood in the Aakirah. So, the first section begins by assuring him that everything would turn out well in the end.

Many scholars have translated verse seven of this Surah by saying that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) was astray and Allah (S.W.T) showed him the right way. (Allah forbid!) All the Prophets and Messengers of Allah (S.W.T) are righteous, pious and on the straight path, being innocent by birth. The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) who is the Imaam of all the Prophets (A.S) was never astray or wrongly wandering or the one who lost his way.

The second section reminds Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (S.A.W) that Allah (S.W.T) had helped him out of many troubles before. The beloved Messenger of Allah (S.W.T) was burdened by the death of his father, mother and grandfather in his early childhood; Allah (S.W.T) provided for him through the care of his uncle and later through his marriage to the wealthy widow, Hazrat Khatija (R.A), (his first wife). From a difficult beginning Allah (S.W.T) raised him to a position of fame.

In this Surah, Allah (S.W.T) was instructing Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (S.A.W) and all the believers to be very careful of their treatment of those more unfortunate than themselves. The Prophet's (S.A.W) life was the best example of good treatment for us to follow. Gratefulness to Allah (S.W.T) is a must for everyone.

This Surah was revealed in Makkah Shareef. It has 11 Ayahs,40 words and 172 letters.
