Shaban 1440 Week 1

Qur’an, Sura Al Hashr, Chapter 59, The Mustering

18. O you who believe, have taqwa towards Allah, and let every person pay attention to what they send ahead for their future. And have taqwa towards Allah. Truly, Allah is aware of whatever you do.

19. And do not be like those who forgot Allah. The consequence of this is that they forgot themselves. Such are the persistently disobedient ones.

20. The people of the Fire and the people of Janna [Paradise] are not the same. The people of Janna are those who are triumphant.

21. If We had sent the Qur’an down to a mountain, you would have seen the mountain humbled and torn apart due to its awe and respect of Allah. We give such similitudes to human beings so that they may reflect and contemplate.

22. He is Allah; there is no one else that can stand as ilah [higher power] except Him. He knows the hidden and the visible. He is Al Rahman, Al Rahim.

23. He is Allah; there is no one else that can stand as ilah except Him. He is Al Malik [The King], Al Quddus [The Holy One], Al Salaam [The Place and Source of Peace], Al Mu’min [The Source of Certainty], Al Muhaymin [The Protector], Al Aziz [The Ultimate Authority], Al Jabbar [The Compeller], Al Mutakabbir [The Possessor of Greatness]. Subhan Allah [May Allah be exalted]! He is far beyond all partners attributed to Him.

24. He is Allah, Al Khaliq [The Creator], Al Bari [The Shaper], Al Musawwir [The Detailer]. All the Asma-ul Husna [Most Beautiful Names] belong to Him and everything in the heavens and earth does tasbih of Him. And He is Al Aziz, Al Hakim [The Wise One].
