Surah Quraysh: A Commentary

1.In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, 2. For the covenants (of security and safeguard enjoyed) by the Quraysh, 3. Their covenants (covering) journeys by winter and summer,- 4. Let them worship the Lord of this House, 5. Who provides them with food against hunger, and with security against fear (of danger)!
The Quraysh loved their city, Mecca and they were proud of this place. First of all, Mecca is positioned in such a way that the Quraysh and the other inhabitants of Mecca felt safe and moreover this place was the ideal place for trade and through this they earned a lot of profits.

When Allah is pouring down His grace and blessings upon His chosen servants, upon people who show obedience to Allah and His Prophet, then definitely Allah shall reward them.

Likewise, ponder over how many “Labbaik, Allahumma Labbaik”our brothers and sisters who are going for the Hajj shall pronounce. We also, in all our sacrifices for the cause of Allah and to please…

“Surah Al-Bayyinah" - Ch. 98
1. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 2. Those who disbelieved among the People of the Book and the polytheists were not to be parted (from misbelieve) until there came to them clear evidence - 3. A messenger from Allah, reciting pure pages; 4. Containing correct and straight laws from Allah. 5. And those who were given the Book did not disagree but after the clear proof came to them, 6. And they were not commanded except to worship Allah, being sincere to Him in religion, inclining to truth, and to establish prayer and to give Zakah. And that is the correct religion. 7.

Their reward with Allah will be gardens of perpetual residence beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abid…
