In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Has there not passed over man a period of time when he was nothing- -not even mentioned?[1] Indeed, We have created man from the sperm drop containing both sexes, so that We may test him. Therefore, We gave him the faculties of hearing and sight.[2] Then We guided him to the Way: Now, it is his choice either to be grateful or to be a disbeliever.[3] For the disbelievers, We have prepared chains, fetters and a blazing fire.[4] The righteous shall be in paradise drinking from a cup of wine mixed with Kafoor (camphor-water),[5] from a gushing spring at which the servants of Allah will refresh themselves, and shall be able to take out its channels from place to place at their will.[6] They are those who keep their vows and dread the Day of widespread terror,[7] who feed the poor, the orphan and the captive for the love of Allah,[8] saying: “We feed you for the sake of Allah Alone; we seek from you neither reward nor thanks,[9] for we dread our Rabb's torment of a very distressful Day."[10] So Allah will deliver them from the evil of that Day, and bestow on them freshness and joy,[11] and reward them, for their steadfastness with paradise and garments of silk.[12]


The universe was there before mankind existed, then Allah created man, provided him with guidance and gave him free will; either to believe or to disbelieve

There they shall be reclining upon high couches; they shall feel neither the scorching heat nor the biting cold.[13] The trees of paradise will spread their shade around them, and their fruits will hang in clusters within their easy reach.[14] They shall be served with silver dishes, goblets of crystal,[15] and goblets made of crystal-clear silver, filled by their attendants in due measure.[16] And they will also be given to drink a cup of wine mixed with Zanjabïl (ginger-flavored water),[17] from a fountain, called Salsabïl.[18] They shall be attended by boys graced with eternal youth: when you see them, they would seem like sprinkled pearls.[19] And which ever direction you will look, you will see blessings and the splendor of a great Kingdom.[20] They (the residents of paradise) shall be arrayed in the garments of fine green silk and rich brocade, and adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Rabb will give them pure wine to drink.[21] O believers, that’s how you will be rewarded, and your endeavors appreciated.[22]


An exemplary life in paradise for those who choose to believe

Surely, it is We Who have sent down this Qur’an to you through gradual revelations,[23] therefore, await with patience the command of your Rabb and do not yield to any sinner or disbeliever from among the unbelievers.[24] Glorify the name of your Rabb morning and evening;[25] prostrate before Him at night and glorify Him during the long hours of night.[26] These unbelievers love the transitory life of this world and neglect the heavy Day that is coming ahead.[27] It is We Who created them and made their joints strong; but if We please We can replace them with others like them through a change.[28] This is indeed an admonition, so let him who will, adopt The Way to his Rabb,[29] but you cannot will, except by the will of Allah. Surely Allah is All-Knowledgeable, All-Wise.[30] He admits to His mercy whom He wills, and for the wrongdoers He has prepared a painful punishment.[31]


Allah sent this Qur'an gradually according to the issues faced by mankind

This is an admonition for those who want to adopt the way to their Rabb (God)

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* The universe was there before mankind existed, then Allah created man, provided him with guidance and let him use his free will: either to believe or to disbelieve.
* An exemplary life in paradise for those who choose to believe.
* Allah gradually sent this Qur’an according to the issues faced by mankind
* This Qur'an is an admonition for those who want to adopt the way to their Rabb (God).

In this Sürah, man is reminded that there was a time when he was nothing; then, a humble beginning of him was made with a mixed drop of sperm and ovum of which even his mother was not aware; even she did not know that he had been conceived nor anyone else seeing the microscopic cell could say that it was a man, who in the future would become the best of creation on the earth. After this, man has been warned: “Beginning your creation in this way, We have developed and shaped you into what you are today in order to test and try you in the world. That is why, unlike other creatures, you were made intelligent and sensible and were shown both the way of gratitude and the way of ingratitude clearly. So that you may prove in this test; whether you are a grateful servant or an unbelieving, Ungrateful wretch!” Then, just in one sentence, it has been stated decisively what the fate will be in the Hereafter for those who emerged as unbelievers from this test.

In the first section, the blessings with which those who do full justice by serving in the world, will be favored. Not only have their best rewards been mentioned, but they have also been told briefly what the acts on the basis of which they would become worthy of those rewards are. After introducing the fundamental beliefs of Islam, those moral qualities and virtuous acts which are praiseworthy according to Islam, have been mentioned, and also those evils of deed which Islam strives to cleanse from human life. These two things are not mentioned with a view to show what good or evil result is entailed by them in the transitory life of this world, but they have been mentioned only to point out what enduring results they will produce in the eternal and everlasting life of the Hereafter, irrespective of whether an evil quality may prove useful or a good quality may prove harmful during their life in the world.

In the second section, addressing the Prophet (pbuh), three things are stated:

  1. It is in fact We, Ourself are revealing this Qur’an piecemeal to you, and this is intended to inform the disbelievers, not you, that the Qur’an is not being fabricated by Muhammad (pbuh), but it is We, Who are revealing it, and it is Our Own wisdom which requires that We should reveal it piece by piece and not all at once.
  2. No matter how long it may take for the decree of your Lord to be enforced, and no matter what afflictions may befall you in the meantime, in any case, you should continue to perform your mission of Risãlat patiently, and not yield to the pressure tactics of any of these wicked and unbelieving people.
  3. Remember Allah day and night, perform the Prayer and spend your nights in the worship of Allah, for it is these things which sustain and strengthen ` those who call to Allah in the face of iniquity and disbelief.

In conclusion, it is said: "This Qur'an is an admonition; whoever wills may accept it and take the path to his Rabb. But man’s own will and desire is not everything in the world. No one’s will and desire can be fulfilled unless Allah (also) so wills. And Allah’s willing is not haphazard; whatever He wills, He wills it on the basis of His knowledge and wisdom. He admits into His mercy whomever He regards as worthy of His mercy on the basis of His knowledge and wisdom, and He has prepared a painful torment for those who are unjust and wicked."
