Welcome to Janathi Message

Ramadan 2008 (The Blessed Month)


Surah Kausar

Al-Kausar means “The Abundance”. This is the name of a fountain in Jannah (Paradise). Allah (S.W.T) has given our Prophet (S.A.W) this fountain. Surah al-Kausar tells us that Almighty Allah gave the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) good things in abundance and excellences to which there are no limits.

This Surah tells us about our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W)’s high status. Some leaders of the Quraish made fun of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) when his young son, Hazrat Qasim (R.A), passed away saying that He no longer had any sons to carry on his name and that he would be forgotten after He passes away. Allah (S.W.T) promises with this Surah that the memory of the Prophet (S.A.W) would continue forever and that all those who are his enemies will be forgotten.

It is true that all our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W)’s enemies have been forgotten. All their riches and sons have been forgotten. Today, millions of Muslims remember our Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) in all parts of the world. They send blessings on Him and His family millions of times each day. The enemies of Islam have been asked many times by Allah (S.W.T) to get together and produce one Surah like this smallest Surah Kausar. They could not even produce a small Surah like this or change it.

This Surah was revealed in Makkah Shareef. It has 3 Ayahs, 10 words and 42 letters.

Surah Asr

Surah al-Asr (The Passing Time) summarises in a few words the main themes of the Holy Quran. This Surah says that we will be losers if we do not make the most of our time by filling it with good deeds. It is these good deeds that will help us in the Hereafter.

Those who do not believe in Allah (S.W.T) or do not do good deeds, or spend their lives in lies and hypocrisy, will one day lose all that they worked for. Those who do not struggle to establish or fight for the truth will end up being losers.

We must have faith and always try to do our best. We must encourage each other to strive for what is good and true and have patience to be successful.

This Surah teaches us that we must have four basic characteristics:

1. Our belief must be perfect. We must not have wrong beliefs,

2. We must perform pious deeds as taught by Allah and His beloved Prophet (S.A.W),

3. We must encourage others to follow the truth, and

4. We must enjoin others to be patient and steadfast.

It is said that when the Sahabas met, they would recite this Surah before parting each other's company.

This Surah was revealed in Makkah Shareef. It has 3 Ayahs, 14 words and 68 letters.
