(Four Surahs’ Series – Part Three)

Surah Sajdah is the 32nd surah of the Quraan Majeed and can be found in the 21st juz (para). As with Surah Mulk (Tabaarak), it has been reported that it was the blessed practice of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to recite Surah Sajdah every night. (Sunan Tirmizi #2892)

The special virtue and benefit of reciting Surah Sajdah every night is that it will protect the one who recites it from the punishment of the grave.

Khaalid bin Ma’daan (rahimahullah), a Taabi‘ee, mentioned the following:

Imagine awakening one morning and opening the front door, only to be greeted by the sight of a beribboned basket packed with steaming croissants, a flask of hot coffee, a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice and other fresh breakfast delights! You wonder who your generous benefactor could possibly be as the accompanying note merely says, “Hope you enjoy”.

To your absolute delight, this early morning treat continues. Every morning without fail, the basket arrives on your doorstep, containing a different selection of tasty treats. By the time the third or fourth morning dawns, you are extremely eager to identify your well wisher so that you can, at the very least, say “Thank You”.

If the idea of a breakfast basket delivered to our door every morning, free of charge, sounds fantastic, have we ever pondered over the fact that every morning, we all wake up to enjoy another fresh basket of life filled with precious gifts, designed exclusively for us?

(Four Surahs’ Series – Part Two)

Surah Mulk, commonly known by many as Surah Tabaarak, is the first surah of the twenty-ninth juz (para) of the Quraan Majeed. It is just less than three and a half pages in length. Accordingly, its daily recitation and even its memorization are extremely easy.

As with Surah Yaseen, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned regarding Surah Mulk, “I certainly wish that it (Surah Mulk) be in the heart of every individual of my Ummah.” (Tabraani – Majma‘uz Zawaaid #11477)

The importance of this surah can also be gauged by the fact that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would recite it every night. (Sunan Tirmizi #2892)

(Four Surahs’ Series – Part One)

Surah Yaseen is indeed a unique surah, as it has been termed the ‘heart’ of the Quraan Majeed. Furthermore, reciting it once equals the reward of reciting the Quraan Majeed ten times. (Sunan Tirmizi #2887)

The importance of this surah, in the life of every believer, can be gauged by the fact that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) expressed his desire for every Muslim to memorise this surah mentioning, “I wish that it (Surah Yaseen) be in the heart of every individual of my Ummah.” (Bazzaar - Kashful Astaar #2305)

Some of the virtues and benefits for reciting Surah Yaseen are:

Ramadhaan and Reformation

Multiplied rewards for good actions, an increase in one’s sustenance, the showering down of the mercy and forgiveness of Allah Ta‘ala… and many other bounties. These are all bonuses and gifts from Allah Ta‘ala during the great month of Ramadhaan. However, the object of Ramadhaan is to acquire taqwa (piety) as has been clearly explained in the Quraan Majeed. Taqwa can be explained in many ways. In short, it refers to becoming the true servants of Allah Ta‘ala. Transforming oneself to become the true servant of Allah Ta‘ala is what is termed as spiritual reformation.

The month of Ramadhaan is the ideal time for this reformation — wherein we have the opportunity to change our lives change for the better forever, not just for the month of Ramadhaan. In order to achieve this reformation, the vital issue is to appreciate this mubaarak month and use every moment correctly.

​The Four Surahs

(Four Surahs’ Series – Introduction)

“BOOOOOM!!!” It was an explosion of unimaginable proportions and far reaching consequences. It was not a bomb explosion, but a far more powerful explosion – an information explosion.

Today, there is no shortage of literature and reading material. Whether in hard copy (novels, newspapers, magazines, etc.) or soft copy (eBooks, PDF’s, websites, blogs, etc.), we are ‘up to our ears’ in literature. If it is not reading literature that takes our time, it could be listening to nasheeds, or clips, or anything else that we enjoy.

The point, however, is that the more these things increase in abundance, the more we ‘connect’ with them. While some of these things may be beneficial (e.g. listening to a bayaan clip), ‘connecting’ with them has, in most cases, caused us to ‘disconnect’ from the Quraan Majeed. In other words, we spend the bulk of our time with these things and no longer have or make time to recite the Quraan Majeed. Obviously, in doing so, we are depriving ourselves of tremendous rewards and benefits and are leaving a void in our lives which can never be filled by anything else.

Inspirational Advice

Beyond the Call of Duty​

During the year 2 A.H., Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) received information that a trade caravan, under the leadership of Abu Sufyaan (who was not yet a Muslim at the time), was returning from Syria to Makkah Mukarramah. Since the Muslims and the Quraish were at war with one another, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) announced his intention to attack the caravan.

The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) immediately responded and prepared to set out. As the trade caravan comprised of a meagre thirty to forty men, just 313 Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) set out with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Furthermore, they did not prepare for a full-scale war as they did not expect to encounter considerable resistance from the small caravan. Hence, their weapons and even their conveyances were few in number.
