Discuss Topics in Surah Ghafir

In The Shade of The Qur’an Vol.15 (Surah Ghafir, Muhammad) Surah Ghafir covers the following topics:

The Shade of The Qur’an Vol.15 (Surah Ghafir, Muhammad) – Surah begins with the letters of ‘Ha Meem,’ which Allah revealed in various parts of Quran. Only Him knows their meanings.

Allah reminds us to remember that He revealed the Quran, and its message, to humanity. While He forgives sins and accepts repentance, He also punishes those who do not believe.

These verses are from Allah and tell the prophet that disbelievers cannot take them away. These are those who disagree with Allah’s signs and verses.

Many of these people, including the nation of Prophet Noah and their confederates, plotted against their messengers. Allah took them to severe punishment and established truth.

The surah (Chapter), then describes the angels who hold Allah’s throne, and the other angels surrounding it. They are glorifying Allah’s Greatness while at the same they ask forgiveness for those who believe in His Oneness and His message of Truth. This is a dua in verses 7 through 9.

Allah will address sinners in hell fire who were once friends, but are now enemies. They would admit to their sins of resisting Islam’s message and acknowledge that they died twice before being born, and again after their lives on Earth. Allah will then address them.

Allah continually shows His signs (on earth, the universe and their reference within the Quran), so people can believe. Those who refuse to believe and continue resisting His message will be punished on the day they will ask “Whose kingdom is this day?” Refer to verse 16.

This surah reminds us all that Allah will not allow anyone to be friends on that day and that it will be a day for reckoning.

Allah uses the example of Prophet Moses, when Allah sent him to his people with the message that truth. Pharaoh, Haman (Pharaoh’s advisor) and Qarun(Korah), not only refused to listen but also ordered the execution of the sons who believed in Prophet Moses.

Pharaoh wanted Prophet Moses to be killed because Moses was converting people from the religion of his forefathers. One of the Pharaoh’s followers asked him why he would kill someone who had shared the truth and guidance of the Lord of all things. (Refer to verse 28).

Many examples of this disbelief and arrogance have been shown, such as the ones in the nations Noah, and and Thamud. They were punished by Allah for resisting the truth, even though they were allowed to rectify their mistakes.

Allah sent Prophet Yousuf the message of truth.

The Shade of The Qur’an Vol.15 (Surah Ghafir, Muhammad) – The surah reminds us all that He seals our hearts when we sin so arrogantly.

We hear throughout those stories of disputes that the message is that this life is temporary. Those who purchase the temporary nature of this world and leave the permanent life of eternity will be the biggest losers.

The surah refers to a dua in which the prophet gives his affairs to Allah when he tells the story of Moses and Pharaoh. (Refer to verse 44).

The surah mentions then that Allah saved the prophet from the Firaun, the Egyptian Pharaoh, and that he and his accomplices will suffer severe torment on the day.

When all are punished, those who followed the dictators will claim that they were following orders and will use that excuse to avoid the penalty. On the other side, the tyrants will claim that all of them deserved the punishment.

Surah depicts a vivid image of the hellfire where the inhabitants will ask the gatekeepers to Allah for mercy.

They would be reminded by the gatekeepers that they had been reminded of Allah’s true message, but they refused to accept the message to which dwellers of fire will admit. Their pleas will not be heard.

In The Shade of The Qur’an Vol.15 (Surah Ghafir, Muhammad) This is how believers and disbelievers will be dealt with in the end, according to the surah.

The surah mentions that Prophet Moses was sent by Allah to his people, the Children of Israel, with the message of Allah in the Scripture of Torah.

Allah tells humanity that the creations of the heavens and the earth are greater than the creations of man. (Refer to verse 57).

Allah tells believers that the last day of judgment is coming and also advises us to pray and ask Allah for all our needs. Refer to verses 59-60.

Then Allah reminds us about his verses, such as the creation cycle of night (for sleep) and day (to work and see). His other signs include the creation and protection of the earth for mankind and the shaping of mankind.

It is forbidden for mankind to worship Allah, the Creator of all things.

Surah describes how Adam created man from dust, then later from male sperm and female urine. This is how the surah describes how the embryo develops in the mother’s womb. The person grows stronger and dies later. Some people die before they reach their full term.

Allah has given these signs to remind everyone that He is the Creator and Lord of the world.

25. When he presented them with the Truth from us, they replied: “Kill the sons and daughters of those who believe with Him, and let their wives live,” but disbelievers’ plots are nothing but errors.

27. Musa (Moses), said: “Verily I seek refuge in My Lord and Your Lord from any arrogant who does not believe in the Day of Reckoning!”

28. A Fir’aun’s (Pharaoh’s) believing man, who kept his faith hidden, said: “Would your Lord allow you to kill a man simply because he claims: My Lord, Allah, and he has shown you clear signs (proofs).” He will fall if he lies; but if his words are truthful, some of the calamities he has threatened to bring upon you.

29. “O my people!” Your kingdom is this day and you are the highest in the land. But who will save us against the Torment of Allah, should that befall us?” Fir’aun (Pharaoh), said: “I only show you what I see (correct), but I only guide you to the right policy!”

32. “And, O my people! Verily! Verily!

33. You will flee from Allah without any protection.

34. Yusuf (Joseph), in fact, did indeed come to you in times past with clear signs. But you never lost sight of what he did bring to your attention, until he died. Thus Allah abandons him who is a Musrif, a polytheist and oppressor, a sinner who commits great sins, and a Murtab, who doubts Allah’s Warning and His Oneness.

35. Those who disagree about the Ayat (proofs and evidences, verses or lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) It is a great offense to Allah and those who believe that they have not been given any authority. Allah does this to seal the hearts of all tyrants and arrogants. They cannot direct themselves to the Right Path.

36. Fir’aun (Pharaoh), said: “O Haman!” Make me a tower so that I can reach the way.

37. “The ways and the heavens, and although I may be able to look upon the Ilah of Musa (Moses), but verily I think him to a liar.” He was prevented from the (Righte) Path and his plot by Fir’aun, (Pharaoh), led to only loss and destruction.

38. The man who believed said, “O my people!” Follow me and I will direct you to right conduct [i.e. Guide you to Allah’s Islamic Monotheism religion with which Musa (Moses has been sent).

39. “O my people!” This life is a quick passing pleasure, and the Hereafter is the home that will always be there.

40. “Whoever commits an evil act will not be repaid except the like thereof. And whoever performs a righteous and true believer in the Oneness of Allah, such will enter Paradise where they will find all the things they need.
