The meaning of Surah al-Waqiah, part 1, 2 and 3
Ramadan Mubarak! Kitaba would like to wish its supporters and friends a blessed Ramadan.
Ramadan is the month of the Quran. In it the Quran was revealed and during it the believers find peace and happiness through recitation and study.
During this blessed month, Shaykh Abdul Aziz explains the meanings of one of the most beautiful and important chapters of the Noble Book. The Prophet, upon him be peace, said that whoever reads Surah al-Waqiah will never fear poverty. Its subtle meanings explain dependence of all of creation on the Creator. In realising this, we begin to understand our own limitations and dependency upon Him. In this chapter Allah asks us to consider what we would do if He decided to send down salt water instead of rain or if He stopped the crops from growing. The chapter increases our awareness of Him and this is the purpose of the fast. We are told we fast to gain taqwa, which means loving awe, which leads to obedience.
It is hoped that this short series of talks will help us gain that much needed awareness. We will be releasing sections of this Tafsir of this Surah over the four weeks of this blessed month.
Other news… Shaykh Abdul Aziz has travelled to Malaysia to distribute Braille Qurans in Malaysia and Indonesia during Ramadan as part of our on-going process of making the Quran available to as many Blind people as possible. Braille Qurans are already on their way to Gambia as a gift from Kitaba and its supporters.Listen: The meaning of Surah al-Waqiah, part 1, 2 and 3
