This Juz finishes the chapter begun in its predecessor, al-Ahzab (Confederates) and concludes with the opening verses of the significant chapter of Ya-Sin.
In closing al-Ahzab, Allah discusses propriety on the part of women, spelling out an image of the Last Day and completes the circle by mentioning the trust that man has undertaken.
The chapter of Saba’ (Sheba) follows al-Ahzab with its depictions of scenes in the Hereafter where a disbeliever’s arguments and futile attempts at faith come too late for their salvation.
The chapter also mentions Allah’s favour to Dawud (David) and Sulayman (Solomon) in order to encourage the Prophet – it refutes the charges against him and the disbelievers are again warned of the punishment that lies in store for them.
In Surah Fatir (Originator) we are presented with many of beautiful Names and Attributes of Allah such as His Omnipotence, His Might and His Wisdom – the One who knows all, who is aware of all, who sees all and who is free from all needs and wants.
The final chapter of this Juz, Ya-Sin, begins by discussing the Qur’an and the Prophet’s call to the polytheists.
What can we learn from this Juz?
1• The Prophet’s relationship with his wives is mentioned and they are enjoined to remain at home;
2• The excellence of the Prophet’s family is mentioned as well as the excellence of the believers in general.
3• Some of the rules relating to divorce;
4• Hijab for the Muslim woman which is linked to the importance of submitting to Allah, as indeed all actions are for believers.
5• A repudiation of the foundations of shirk (polytheism) and denial of the Hereafter.
6• The guidance of the Prophets in giving due thanks for the blessings they received, and how many people are actually ungrateful;
7• A call to the pagans to ponder on the reality of the Day on which only faith will be the only true benefit, and warning that accepting faith on that Day will be too late!
8• A reminder about Allah’s mercy and His immense blessings, and a warning against being deceived by this worldly life or by Satan; A reminder of Allah’s greatness and man’s dire need of Him;
9• The evil designs of the pagans will only overtake themselves.
