🌙 Quran Summaries – 19/30 🌙
- Al-Furqan (21-end)
- Al-Naml (1-55)
Continuing with al-Furqan to its end, Allah addresses the accusations levelled against the Qur’an and the Messenger SAAS and refutes them. In identifying this rejection and persecution as nothing new, Allah relates incidents from the lives of other Prophets who suffered similar problems. As a warning to the disbelievers, it highlights what their end will be if they persist in disbelief and closes by outlining the role of the Prophet SAAS, and describing the true believer. In the following chapter, al- Shu’ara (Poets), the fundamentals of faith are discussed: Allah’s Oneness, revelation and the Last Day as well as giving examples of Allah’s power and grace in nature. The main body of the chapter is devoted to historical accounts that consolidate these areas, and an air of warning pervades the whole chapter. The final chapter in the Juz is al-Naml (Ants) – it opens and closes by describing the Qur’an as being joyful news for the believers and a warning for others.
