Welcome to Janathi Message

Ramadan 2008 (The Blessed Month)


Surah Kaafiroon

The people of Makkah wanted to make deals with the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) to change the religion of Islam so that they will find it easier to follow. In one of the deals some people said that they will worship Allah (S.W.T) only for one year if the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) would worship their idols the next year, and they could continue to take turns year after year.

Allah (S.W.T) revealed Surah al-Kaafiroon (The Unbelievers) to make it clear to the Quraish that it was not possible. Our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) recited this Surah openly in public at every place to tell the Kufaar that the Muslims and the Kaafirs were not going to compromise as both their religions were not the same.

This Surah also tells us how to speak to the unbelievers. If a person does not accept Islam after it has been explained to him, we should not argue with that person, but simply say: “You follow your way, I will follow mine.”

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said that we should recite this Surah before going to sleep at night to protect you from unbelief.

This Surah was revealed in Makkah Shareef. It has 6 Ayahs, 26 words and 94 letters.

Surah Ma'oon

The title of this Surah means : The Basic Necessities. In this Surah, Allah (S.W.T) condemns people who only pay attention to the act of Salaah, but do not worry about, nor take care of the orphans and the poor. They refrain from helping others.

This Surah also warns against being forgetful of one's prayers by not praying regularly or on time. Some people only pray so that others will say that he or she is very religious. The Holy Quran says that such people only pray to show people and warns such people.

People who refuse to do even simple things for others are really hard-hearted and stingy. This Surah teaches us to help our fellow Muslim brothers in need. It is our duty to help the deprived, poor, orphans, the needy, etc. If we do not help them then Allah (S.W.T) will be displeased with us.

This Surah was revealed in Makkah Shareef. It has 7 Ayahs, 25 words and 125 letters.
