The 26th Juz is recited in this TarawÃ®h. This Juz includes the entire Surahs AhqÃ¢f, Muhammad, Fatah, HujurÃ¢t, QÃ¢f and DhÃ¢riyÃ¢t.
This Juz commences with SÃ»rah AhqÃ¢f, in which AllÃ¢h states that He has created the universe only for a stipulated period of time. The system of the universe functions according to AllÃ¢hâ€™s perfect plan, yet the KuffÃ¢r still adamantly oppose the truth. AllÃ¢h commands man to treat his parents kindly, reminding him that his mother bore him with hardship and delivered him with hardship. When this man grows up to be righteous, he will express gratitude to AllÃ¢h, whereupon AllÃ¢h will accept his acts and forgive him for his shortcomings. However, AllÃ¢h will punish those Who oppose their parents and disobey them.
Thereafter, AllÃ¢h makes mention of the time when a group of the Jinn listened to RasulullÃ¢h SallallÃ¢hu â€˜alayhi wasallam reciting the Qurâ€™Ã¢n and then conveyed the message of IslÃ¢m to their people.
SÃ»rah Muhammad follows SÃ»rah AhqÃ¢f. AllÃ¢h says that the acts of people will be destroyed when, apart from adhering to kufr, they also enjoin others to do the same. AllÃ¢h will also forgive the sins of those who possess imÃ¢n and practise the guidance given to them. In addition to this, AllÃ¢h will also correct their acts.
AllÃ¢h also commands the Muslims to wage JihÃ¢d until the enemy surrenders. Those people who are averse to JihÃ¢d after imÃ¢n and guidance have come to them have definitely fallen prey to ShaytÃ¢n because ShaytÃ¢n makes evil acts seem appealing and makes people entertain hopes of long lives. Eventually, the acts of such people are destroyed. AllÃ¢h also tells people to ponder about the verses of the, Qurâ€™Ã¢n because this will illuminate their hearts and their minds.
SÃ»rah Fatah follows SÃ»rah Muhammad. In this SÃ»rah, AllÃ¢h speaks about the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah which turned out to be a tremendous victory for the Muslims. AllÃ¢h says in verse 10, â€œVerity those who pledge allegiance to you (O RasulullÃ¢h) have actually pledged allegiance to AllÃ¢h. AllÃ¢hâ€™s hand is above theirs.â€
AllÃ¢h adds that those who violate their pledge and turn away from JihÃ¢d become deserving of a terrible punishment.
AllÃ¢h declares in the final verse of this SÃ»rah, â€œMuhammad SallallÃ¢hu â€˜alayhi wasallam is AllÃ¢hâ€™s NabÃ® and those with him are hard on the disbelievers, yet compassionate towards each other.â€ (verse 29)
SÃ»rah HujurÃ¢t, which follows SÃ»rah Fatah, contains teachings that are pertinent to good character. The SÃ»rah teaches Muslims the etiquette of social interaction and good manners. The SÃ»rah especially emphasises the refinement of manners te be displayed when in the presence of RasulullÃ¢h SallallÃ¢hu â€˜alayhi wasallam and near his rooms. In fact, failure to observe etiquette in RasulullÃ¢hâ€™s SallallÃ¢hu â€˜alayhi wasallam presence may lead to oneâ€™s acts being rejected. The SÃ»rah highlights the importance of cordial and amicable behaviour towards each other and equates backbiting to eating the flesh of a brotherâ€™s corpse.
The next SÃ»rah is SÃ»rah QÃ¢f, in which man is told that AllÃ¢h is closer to him than his own jugular vein. AllÃ¢h also reminds man that two angels have been appointed to record the acts of every person. These records will be closely examined on the Day of QiyÃ¢mah.
SÃ»rah DhÃ¢riyÃ¢t begins thereafter AllÃ¢h tells man that QiyÃ¢mah is inevitable and that every person will receive the recompense due to him/her for every good and evil act committed. The evil ones will suffer punishment while the righteous Muâ€™minÃ®n will enjoy the bounties of Jannah.
AllÃ¢h describes the people of imÃ¢n as those who sleep very little, who awaken during the early hours of the morning to beseech AllÃ¢h for forgiveness, and who spend their wealth to assist those who ask of them as well as those who do not ask. The incidents of certain AmbiyÃ¢ are then mentioned briefly.
Play AllÃ¢h bless us all with the realisation of what is to come in the Ã‚khirÃ¢h. Ã‚mÃ®n.
