How does the Quran explain it What examples etc it uses How similar themes are mentioned in the HQ Example from the Quran or the Ahadith

The Main Theme(s)


This is the opening Surah of the Quran its theme is Tauheed or absolute oneness of Allah, and man's relationship with Allah It tells us that Allah alone deserves worship because He has power to ensure sustenance of all, extend mercy to all and dispense ultimate justice We need to seek His guidance in order to earn His favour and avoid the ill fate of misguided communities This guidance is contained in the Quran and the Prophet's Sunnah.

The Presentation of the Theme.

The focal point of the Surah is the guidance in the light of which man can guarantee success for himself in this world and the Hereafter This guarantee lies in treading the path of righteousness designed and shown by Allah as contained in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet This path has been given the name in 3:103 as the Rope of Allah that ensures collective survival of the believers The Surah also stresses on seeking Allah's help and compassion in all affairs of life because Allah alone is the source of help He maintains all forms of life including those that are beyond our imagination The last two Surahs of the Quran (al-Muawwazatain) provide similar guarantee by asking the believers to seek Allah's refuge against all evils.

Surah Baqara 2: 21-22

21. O people! Adore your Guardian-Lord, who created you and those who came before you, so that you may have the chance to learn righteousness 22. Who has made the earth your couch, and the heavens your canopy; and sent down rain from the heavens; and by it brought forth fruits for your sustenance; then do not set up rivals to Allah, when you know.

The Main Theme(s)

The Surah narrates the signs of onset of the Day of Judgement and the events unfolding in its aftermath The Day will mark the end of time and begin by an intense shaking of the earth that will lead to utter chaos All this will be by the command of its Creator, Allah Almighty By this command again, all humans will be brought before Him to stand accountable for all their worldly deeds Their fate will be determined on the basis of their performance in the worldly existence This will be done by showing them all their deeds or misdeeds.

Belief in the Hereafter is one of the fundamentals of Islam Allah has created this universe according to His own plan and will bring it to an end on one particular day That day will begin by the blow of Trumpet by angel Israfil and that will cause extremely violent shaking of earth which will eject all the dead in it The next phase will be marked by all humans standing answerable before their Creator Lord Then He will show the minutest details of each and every deed of His creatures Now none can deny the divine justice The Quran presents many other signs of the Day of Reckoning with reference to certain other aspects For example al-Infitar (The Cleaving Asunder), alInshiqaq (The Rending Asunder) and al-Takwir (The folding up of the sun).

This is the last Surah of the Quran and is partner to the preceding Surah (Al-Falaq) Both Surahs teach the believers to find Allah's protection against all evil forces This Surah focuses on three important aspects of man's relation with Allah Allah alone is to be acknowledged as the sole Sustainer and Supreme over all humans Therefore, He is only to be worshipped Developing these bonds of association with Allah will help a believer to guard against the incursion of Satan and his host of men and Jinnaat who are bent upon attacking the faith of believers.

The Presentation of the Theme


The Surah primarily addresses the Prophet to seek protection of Allah Almighty against the evil effect of the magic spell cast on him Through the Prophet, its teachings extend to all believers who are required to ward off all possible evils that are aimed at distracting them from the Right Path Believers are to remember that Allah alone is the Master Lord and Monarch of all humans and, therefore, has full powers to undo all evil forces crafted by Satan They should also remember that Satan may attack their faith through his assistant jinnaat and men who accomplish their unholy mission by inspiring one another with adorned speech as a delusion.
