Ramadan 2008 (The Blessed Month)


Surah Ikhlaas

1. Please declare: Allah is One and Only.
2. Allah is Independent from every need.
3. He has begotton none; nor was He begotton (from anyone);
4. And there is none equal to Him.

Surah al-Ikhlas is one of the most important Surahs of the Holy Quran because it tells us about what we should believe about Allah (S.W.T). Al-Ikhlas means “The Purity of Faith”. When the Makkans, the Jews and the Christians asked the Holy Prophet (S.A.W), He used to answer them with this Surah. Our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) used to recite this Surah often in His Salaah. He also said that by reciting this Surah a Muslim will be in love with Almighty Allah.

This Surah tells us that Allah (S.W.T) is the One and Only. He is not in need of anything. Allah (S.W.T) does not depend on anyone but all things depend on Him. He has no son. He has no father. He is so near to us that it is He who always cares for us. There is no one like Him. Allah (S.W.T) resembles none and nobody resembles Him. There is none equal to Almighty Allah (S.W.T).

The Prophet (S.A.W) said that Surah al-Ikhlas is equal to one-third of the Holy Quran, and that we should recite it often.

This Surah was revealed in Makkah Shareef. It has 4 Ayahs, 15 words and 47 letters.

Surah Nasr

Surah an-Nasr (The Help) was a sign from Allah (S.W.T) that the Holy Prophet's (S.A.W) work had been completed. Islam had spread beyond Makkah and Madina. By now thousands and thousands of people had accepted Islam. Many tribes also came to accept Islam at the blessed hands of the beloved Prophet (S.A.W). His mission was successful.

This Surah teaches us that Allah (S.W.T) helps and gives victory to Muslims if they remain steadfast. Whenever a person is successful in any work, no matter how much he sacrificed and how much good he has done, he must never forget to remain humble before Allah (S.W.T), the Creator of the Universe. Muslims must pray to Allah (S.W.T) and beg forgiveness from Him daily.

As an example for us, our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) made Tauba (Allah’s forgiveness) 70 times a day although He was sinless, so that we too will follow his teachings.

This Surah was revealed in Madina Shareef. It has 3 Ayahs, 17 words and 77 letters.
