سورة الكوثر

AL-KAWTHAR
 
Al-Kawthar| Sura # 108| 3 Verses | Makkan

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful
 
Juz 30, Al-Kawthar, Verse 001
 
إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ  [ Indeed, We have granted you (O' Prophet  ﷺ) Al-Kawthar. ]

Sura al-Kawthar was revealed at a time when Makkan pagans' persecution of Muslims was at its peak. With no business left, the  Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) was totally cut off from the community. Both his sons Qasim and Abdullah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہم) died early in their childhood during this time.  The Pagans thought that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) had  been ruined as he does not have any male children to carry forward his religion in future. 

Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) says that as against the foolish understanding of Makkan Pagans, Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) has rewarded the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) much more virtue in both the worlds.

In addition, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) is rewarded with the fountain of al-Kauther on the day of Judgment from which his Umma will drink.  The water of this fountain will come from the river of Paradise, also named al-Kauther, which has been given to Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).

There are many Ahadith related with over 50 Sahabah that  mention both the fountain of al-Kauther and the river of al-Kauther in Paradise.

The people on the day of Resurrection will suffer from thirst.  But the Muslim Ummah will gather in front of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) at this fountain and they will be provided water from it to drink. The water of this fountain will be cool, whiter than milk, sweeter than honey and will smell like musk.  Al-Kawthar will be a very large fountain and the number of water jugs provided on it will be like the number of stars in the sky.  Whoever drinks a glass of this water will never feel thirsty again. 


Juz 30, Al-Kawthar, Verse 002
 
فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ [ So turn to your Lord in prayer and sacrifice. ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Kawthar, Verse 003
 
إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الْأَبْتَرُ [ Surely, he who hates you (O' Prophet  ﷺ), will (surely) be 'Abtar' (cut off from good of both the worlds). ]
 
Some of the pagans called the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)  'Abtar', a person who had been cut off from his root.  Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) says that the one who hates the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) is himself Abtar.
 
 


سورة الكافرون

THE DISBELIEVERS
 
Al-Kaarifoon| Sura # 109| 6 Verses | Makkan

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Kaafiroon, Verse 001
 
قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ [ Say (O' Prophet  ﷺ),  O' Disbelievers, ]
 
Juz 30, Al-Kaafiroon, Verse 002
 
لَا أَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ [ I do not worship that which you worship,]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Kaafiroon, Verse 003
 
وَلَا أَنْتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ [ nor will you pray (Allah) Whom I pray, ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Kaafiroon, Verse 004
 
وَلَا أَنَا عَابِدٌ مَا عَبَدْتُمْ [ And I will never worship those (deities) whom you worship, ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Kaafiroon, Verse 005
 
وَلَا أَنْتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ [ Nor will you pray (Allah) Whom I pray. ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Kaafiroon, Verse 006
 
لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ [ Surely, I will be rewarded for my prayers, and you will be punished for your (Idol) worship. ]
 
It is reported that the Mushrikeen of Makka often offered the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) certain compromises in religion.  They asked him to respect some of their gods and in return they will respect Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ).  Similarly, there can be compromise in various Pagans' customs.  These offers were rejected by the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).  
 
Surah al-Kaafiroon clearly distinguishes between a believer and a non-believer,  referred in Quran as Kafir; meaning a person who rejects his own creator.  The word Kafir covers hypocrites, atheists, deity, idol, stars and object worshipers and those who claim their god to have creature attributes, like physical body, spouse children, etc.


 

سورة النصر

THE DIVINE SUPPORT
 
An-Nasr| Sura # 110| 3 Verses | Madinan

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful
 
 
Juz 30, An-Nasr, Verse 001
 
إِذَا جَاءَ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ [ When Allah’s  help comes and the victory, ]
 
Juz 30, An-Nasr, Verse 002
 
وَرَأَيْتَ النَّاسَ يَدْخُلُونَ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ أَفْوَاجًا [ you shall see people throng (and embrace) the religion of Allah in crowds. ]

 

Juz 30, An-Nasr, Verse 003
 
فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ تَوَّابًا [ Then glorify the praises of your Lord and seek His forgiveness (for your Ummah). Certainly it is He Who accepts repentance and grants forgiveness! ]
 
Surah An-Nasr refers to Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) help in the  victory of Muslims.  During 23 years of preaching of Islam, the first 13 years in Makka, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) faced extreme persecution in the hands of Makkan Pagans for 13 years in Makka.  After his immigration to Madina, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) had to deal with the machinations of Jews, disbelieving tribes and Makkan attacks.  Many battles were fought by Muslims during this period and gradually with the help of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ), all resistance to Islam was overpowered and people joined the fold of Islam in crowds.  When the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) did Hajj in 9 AH, over 1,20,000 Muslims accompanied him.

سورة لَهَب

THE FLAME
 
Al-Masad| Sura # 111| 5 Verses | Makkan

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Lahab, Verse 001
 
تَبَّتْ يَدَا أَبِي لَهَبٍ وَتَبَّ [ (Let) the hands of Abu Lahab Perish! And perish he!]
 
Juz 30, Al-Lahab, Verse 002
 
مَا أَغْنَى عَنْهُ مَالُهُ وَمَا كَسَبَ [ Neither his wealth nor (worldly) gains will benefit him. ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Lahab, Verse 003
 
سَيَصْلَى نَارًا ذَاتَ لَهَبٍ [ He will burn in a flaming Fire, ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Lahab, Verse 004
 
وَامْرَأَتُهُ حَمَّالَةَ الْحَطَبِ [ and his wife, the carrier of firewood, ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Lahab, Verse 005
 
فِي جِيدِهَا حَبْلٌ مِنْ مَسَدٍ [ with a palm-fibre rope around her neck. ]
 
Abu Lahab was Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) uncle, step brother of his father Abdullah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ).  He was fair complexioned and a rich man in Makka. He was next door neighbor of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). 
He opposed the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) all through his life in which his wife Umm Jameel also participated.  She used to collect firewood for her home.  It is reported that she used to collect thorns along with firewood and spread them in front of the house of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).  She would also spread trash in front of the door of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). 
Abu Lahab did not participate in the battle of Badr along with Makkan Pagans, probably because he was sick.  He died soon after the battle. His death occurred in a very bad shape as he was afflicted by a contiguous disease and the people of his house left him to himself, fearing contagion. When he died, no one came near his body for several days.  When the dead body started to get decomposed and the stink spread in the neighborhood, the neighbors objected to his sons. They finally got his body removed with the help of some African slaves.  It is reported that they dug a pit and threw his body into it by pushing it with wood sticks, and covered the ditch with earth and stones.
 

 

سورة الإخلاص

SINCERITY
 
Al-Ikhlaas| Sura # 112| 4 Verses | Makkan

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Ikhlaas, Verse 001
 
قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ  [ Say (O'Prophet ﷺ), Allah is one (and one all the way.  His Being does not contain elements.  He is not a compound). ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Ikhlaas, Verse 002
 
اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ  [ Allah is independent (existing on His own.  Everybody is dependent upon Him) ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Ikhlaas, Verse 003
 
لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ [ He does not have children (He has not given birth to anyone). Nobody has given birth to Him.  (Allah is there from the beginning and no one precedes Him). ]
 
 
Juz 30, Al-Ikhlaas, Verse 004
 
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ   [ No one can match Him or can equal Him. ]
 

The Islamic perception of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ)

Most of the Muslims only know about Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ).  Their faith in Him is limited to 'Certitude of Knowing' (علم اليقين). They do not see Him or Realize Him.  

There are 3 states of certitude (certainty - يقين) about a thing,  as follows.

(i) 'Certitude of knowing' (علم اليقين)

Like we know that fire burns, this is 'certitude of knowing' (علم اليقين).

(ii) 'Certitude of Seeing'(عينُ اليقين) 

Suppose we have seen someone burning in fire, this is 'Certitude of Seeing' (عينُ اليقين).

(iii) 'Certitude of Realizing' (حقُّ اليقين) 

Suppose, our finger was burnt accidentally, this is 'Certitude of Realizing' (حقُّ اليقين).

 

HOW TO SEE AND REALIZE ALLAH (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) 

Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) is eternal and manifest/apparent.  He is there from the beginning and will be there when everything in this Cosmos will vanish.

It is in Quran -  هُوَ الْأَوَّلُ وَالْآخِرُ وَالظَّاهِرُ وَالْبَاطِنُ ۖ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ  [ He is the First, and the Last, He is the Manifest (apparent) and the Immanent (hidden and actually present through out the material world) and He knows about all the things.]  (Al-Hadeed – 3).

It is in Quran - كُلُّ مَنْ عَلَيْهَا فَانٍ  -  وَيَبْقَىٰ وَجْهُ رَبِّكَ ذُو الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ [All that there is in the Cosmos shall vanish. The Countenance (stand alone) of your Lord (by Himself) shall endure, the Lord of Majesty and Glory’. (Ar-Rahman – 26-27).

What is the purpose of our creation?

The answer is provided by Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) Himself.

It is in Hadith -    [ The  Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) stated that Allah  (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) said : كنت كنزاً مخفياً فأحببت أن أعرف فخلقت الخلق  [ I was a Hidden Treasure; then I wanted to be known; therefore, I created the creatures. ]

It is in Quran وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ [ And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.]  (Adh-Dhaariyat - 56)

The contents and meaning of the above Quranic verse and Hadith are exactly the same. 

The above Hadith-e-Qudsi is very popular.  However, its chain of transmission is not recorded by Hadith scholars. Since the contents of the Hadith are Sahih, and do not contradict with Quran, it is widely accepted by Muslims as authentic.

Three things have been mentioned in the above Hadith, as follows.

(i) Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) was a Hidden treasure (كنزاً مخفياً). 

We only came to know about Him after our creation.  Before that He was known to Himself.

(ii) He wanted to be known by His creatures.

(iii) Therefore, He created all that available in this Cosmos. 

And the only purpose of our creation is to know Him and worship Him.

What is meaning of 'Hidden Treasure' (كنزاً مخفياً)?

The first understanding of Allah’s  (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) Existence, which is referred to as 'Hidden Treasure' in the above Hadith is clearly described in the Quran. 

It is in Quran -  قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ  -  اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ - لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ - وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ [ Say (O’ Prophet ﷺ) Allah is one. Allah is independent. He does not have children. Nobody has given birth to him. Nobody can match Him or equal Him.]  (Al-Ikhlas - 1- 4).

Everything in the Cosmos, every existence in the Cosmos is dependent upon Allah's  (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) Existence or His Being.  Everything is derived  from Him.  The support of His existence has the capacity to manifest/appear in limitless shapes and forms in consideration with the individual facts and natures of His creatures.  All shapes and forms and bodies in this Cosmos are His creatures and the source and origin of these creatures is Allah's Unity (ذاتِ الہى) who is our Lord and Lord of the worlds (رب العالمين).

Does it mean that everything is God or God is in everything?  

No, everything is His creature. The source of all creatures is Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ).

There is difference between 'the manifestation of the Being' and 'Divinity of the Being (Uloohiyat - اُلوہيت)'. Divinity is the attribute of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ), who is the 'essence of all existence' in the Cosmos.  The Shapes and forms in this cosmos are, though supported by His Being, or we can say manifestations of His Being, but are all creatures.  No shape, no body and no form in this Cosmos is Divine or worshipable.  Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ), the creator of all these shapes and forms,  is the real worshipable God.

We are creatures and our attribute is ‘servant hood’. You, we or anything in this cosmos, though is the manifestation of His Being, but not God.  Divinity cannot be associated with any shape or form or body in this Cosmos Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) cannot be confined into a Shape or Form.  He is free from all such limitations. 

This is denoted in Islamic Testimony (Kalima Tayyiba) -  لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله  [There is no God, but Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ), and Mohammed (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) is the Apostle of Allah. ]

We are born, we grow old and die. Similar is the case with planets, trees and everything in this cosmos.

It is in Quran - كُلُّ مَنْ عَلَيْهَا فَانٍ  -  وَيَبْقَىٰ وَجْهُ رَبِّكَ ذُو الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ [All that there is in the Cosmos shall vanish. The Countenance (stand alone) of your Lord (by Himself) shall endure, the Lord of Majesty and Glory’. (Ar-Rahman – 26-27).

All things in this cosmos remain for a specific period and vanish. If they were all gods, or divinity was associated with them, they would have lived indefinitely.

WHO ARE CREATURES?

From the tiny invisible particles (like proton, electron) to the mighty stars and heavens, everything is known to Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) prior to their creation. He created them with His prior knowledge. Individual facts of these creatures along with their individual characteristics were their in Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knowledge.

When Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) wants to create a thing, He looks at its ‘fact’ which is there in His knowledge and commands ‘Be’, and there it comes into existence. This is external existence of that fact (thing).

It is in Quran - إِنَّمَا قَوْلُنَا لِشَيْءٍ إِذَا أَرَدْنَاهُ أَن نَّقُولَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ [A thing We want to create, We only say 'Be', and there it is (it comes into existence)] (An Nahl - 40).

Before the command of ‘Be’, the things were in internal existence or in Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knowledge as individual facets of His Knowledge. Internal or external existence, both are within the Knowledge of Almighty.  Nothing can come out of Allah's Unity.

What is the meaning of the following verses?

It is in Quran -  فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِي فَقَعُوا لَهُ سَاجِدِينَ [ (When Adam's عليه السلام body was created, Allah says) I breathed something (into it) out of My Soul.] (Al-Hijr – 29).

It is in Quran -  وَإِذْ تَخْلُقُ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ بِإِذْنِي فَتَنفُخُ فِيهَا فَتَكُونُ طَيْرًا بِإِذْنِي  [(Allah says to Isa – عليه السلام) And when you make a bird-like shape from the mud and blow into it your breath and it gets to life on My behest.] (Al-Ma’ida – 110). 

The meaning of the above verses is giving life or external existence.

What is the meaning of giving life?

It is the reflection of Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) Being on the fact of the creature. No sooner the command of ‘Be’ is given, the thing appears in a specific shape.

What is the meaning of reflection of Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) Being?

It is in Quran - هُوَ الظَّاهِرُ وَالْبَاطِنُ ۖ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ [He is the Manifest (apparent) and the Immanent (hidden - but actually present through out the material world) and He is the knower of all things ’ . (Al-Hadeed – 3).

The reflection of Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) Being means, the connection of the fact of the creature with Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) potentiality/attribute of being ‘Apparent’.

Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) is Manifest (apparent). When He reflects this potentiality on the fact of a creature, it also becomes apparent or it comes into life (for a specific period of time).
  This is the reason our world is known as ‘the World of Manifestation ' ( Aalam-e-Shahadat -  عالمِ شہادت).

In our external existence, we are not separated from His Being.  We are apparent within His knowledge.  Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) is knowledgeable and His Knowledge is His attribute, therefore, cannot be separated from Him.

The World of Manifestation (or our physical world) is made up of matter. To appear in this world, we needed bodies of matter, which were provided to us.

After our death, these bodies have to remain here.  This is the reason our bodies are buried under the ground in this world.  Later they get decomposed and become part of earth.

Why the things are seen by us only in external existence and not seen when they are in Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knowledge in internal existence?

When Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) commands ‘Be’ to a fact, a contact with Allah’s potentiality of being ‘Apparent’ is established and we become noticeable.

We will explain it by an example.  When we look at a thing, the light gets reflected from that thing into our eyes and we see that thing.  If it is darkness, we cannot see that thing. 

Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) is eternal and manifest (apparent).  When Allah's Being reflects on the fact of a thing, it also gets manifest and apparent.  

Our facts in Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knowledge before our creation can be seen only by Him. No one has access to see those facts, except Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ).  Even in their external existence, many things are not known to us which is described as 'Knowledge of Unseen' (علمِ غيب). 

It is in Quran -  وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ [ And they (Humans) will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. ] (Al-Baqara – 255).

The whole cosmos is not separately or independently existing on its own. Every moment, every instant, we require Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) assistance to survive.

It is in Quran -  لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ [ No slumber can seize Allah nor sleep.] (Al-Baqara – 255).

It is His perpetual attention towards us that keeps us going. His Unity is encircling us from all sides. No one is outside the circle of His knowledge.  This is the meaning of the following verses and Ahadith.

(i) It is in Quran - وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ  [And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein.] (Qaf - 16)
 
(ii) It is in Quran -  وَفِي أَنفُسِكُمْ ۚ أَفَلَا تُبْصِرُونَ [ And His signs are in your own self, will you not then see. ] (Adh-Dhariyat - 21)
 
(iii) It is in Quran - وَهُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ [ Wherever you are, He is with you.]  (Al-Hadid - 4).
 
(iv) It is in Quran - فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ [ Whichever side you turn, you will find Allah. ] (Al-Baqara - 115)
 
(v) It is in Hadith - Abdullah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) narrated that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said : 'Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) is not hidden from you'. (Bukhari)
 
(vi0 It is in Hadith - Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) was asked  'What is Ihsan?' He (the Prophet )   replied, 'Ihsan is to  pray seeing Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ), and if you are unable to see Him (unable to focus your attention towards Him because of our too much attention on worldly things), know it well that He is seeing you.' (Bukhari, Muslim - part of the Hadith).
 
Who can see and realize Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) in this world?

One who considers the Unity of Allah (ذاتِ الہى) as the source of all manifestation, and considers the real source to be the Unity of Allah (ذاتِ الہى) and gains Allah’s (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) visualization in such a way that he considers himself a place of manifestation of the Being and sees the reflection of His Being (وجودِ الہى) on the facts of creatures; certainly he recognizes his Sustainer (رب).  The one who recognizes Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ), his physical eyes get suspended,  and the eyes of his heart get activated and he sees and realizes his Lord all the time.   

Who taught us this knowledge?  Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) has taught us everything.  فداك ابي و امي و انا  واهلِ  يا رسول الله
