Surah Al Maun, Chapter 107

Surah Al Maun, Chapter 107

In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

Many commentators believe that this Surah was revealed at Mecca. The tone of the verses, which are short and awakening about the Hereafter, and the deeds of the deniers of the Judgement Day, attests to this idea.

On the whole, the deeds and characteristics of the deniers of the Hereafter are stated in five references. Consequently, they deny the Final Judgement, repulse giving charity on the path of Allah, or helping the orphan and the indigent. They are heedless of their prayers, by saying them only hypocritically, and refuse to supply even neighbourly needs.

Occasion of the Revelation

On the occasion of the Surah’s revelation, some have said that it was revealed about Abu-Sufyan who used to slaughter two big camels every day from which he and his men ate. But one day it happened that an orphan came to his door and asked for some help. Abu-Sufyan beat him with his stick and repulsed him.( Hadith Asbab Al-Nuzul)

The Virtue of Studying the Surah

On the virtue of the recitation of the Surah, a tradition narrated from Imam Baqir (as) says:

“He who recites it (Surah Ma’un) in his obligatory and optional prayers, Allah accepts his prayers and his fasting, and does not count the (evil) acts he committed in this world.”[Majma-al-Bayan. vol 10, p. 546.]

The sins of those who recite this Surah Al-Maun are forgiven. If recited a 100 times after the Fajr Namaz, one remains safe until the next day’s Fajr time. [Majma-al-Bayan. vol 10]

Our Beloved Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (Radi allahu tala anhu) said that if a person recites Surah al-Maaun 41 times every day, he and his family will remain free from being dependant on others for their sustenance. (It is recommended that salawaat/Durood O Salam should also be recited after the first and last ten times) [Majma-al-Bayan. vol 10]

Surah Maun, Verses 1-7

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

أَرَأَيْتَ الَّذِي يُكَذِّبُ بِالدِّينِ

فَذَٰلِكَ الَّذِي يَدُعُّ الْيَتِيمَ

وَلَا يَحُضُّ عَلَىٰ طَعَامِ الْمِسْكِينِ

فَوَيْلٌ لِّلْمُصَلِّينَ

الَّذِينَ هُمْ عَن صَلَاتِهِمْ سَاهُونَ

الَّذِينَ هُمْ يُرَاءُونَ

وَيَمْنَعُونَ الْمَاعُونَ

In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

1. “Have you seen him who denies the Final Judgement?”
2. “Then such is the man who repulses the orphan (with harshness),”
3. “And encourages not the feeding of the indigent.”
4. “So woe to those praying ones,”
5. “Who are careless of their prayers,”
6. “Those who (want but) to be seen (of men),”
7. “But refuse (to supply) (even) neighbourly needs.”

  5. I discovered more new stuff on this weight-loss issue. Just one issue is that good nutrition is vital any time dieting. A massive reduction in junk food, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sugary foods, red meat, and whitened flour products might be necessary. Holding wastes parasitic organisms, and harmful toxins may prevent targets for losing belly fat. While particular drugs for the short term solve the issue, the unpleasant side effects usually are not worth it, and they never offer you more than a temporary solution. It is a known indisputable fact that 95 of fad diet plans fail. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this blog.

  7. Thanks for giving your ideas with this blog. Also, a misconception regarding the finance institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosures is that the traditional bank will not getreceive my repayments. There is a fair bit of time that this bank will need payments here and there. If you are way too deep inside hole, they may commonly require that you pay the payment 100 . However, i am not saying that they will have any sort of payments at all. In case you and the bank can be capable to work one thing out, your foreclosure procedure may halt. However, if you continue to skip payments in the new strategy, the property foreclosures process can just pick up exactly where it left off.

  14. We would also like to say that most people that find themselves without health insurance can be students, self-employed and people who are unemployed. More than half with the uninsured are really under the age of Thirty-five. They do not think they are looking for health insurance simply because they’re young plus healthy. Their particular income is typically spent on houses, food, plus entertainment. Lots of people that do work either entire or as a hobby are not given insurance by way of their jobs so they move without because of the rising valuation on health insurance in the us. Thanks for the tips you talk about through this web site.

Remember, they can prefer to never use your solutions. But if an individual maintain a comfortable, professional relationship, offering assistance and staying in contact for four to five weeks, you will usually manage to win a discussion. From there, a listing follows. Many thanks
