In ending Ya-Sin, Allah mentions the punishment of previous nations and emphasises, again, the reality of the resurrection. In a stark warning to all of mankind, we are warned of the transient reality of this life – “It will not be but one blast, and at once they are all brought present before Us.”
The Juz continues into al-Saffat (Those who set the Ranks), a chapter characterised by its short, powerful verses. This chapter describes the Angels, the eavesdropping of the Jinn, Allah’s acts of creation and refutation of those who deny the resurrection. The chapter closes by declaring the limitless glory of Allah.
In the following chapter of Saad, we are again presented with stories of the Prophets providing lessons to mankind and consolation to the Prophet – the chapter carries themes of Tawhid (Divine Unity), revelation and the reckoning.
The final chapter of the Juz, al-Zumar (Groups), begins in this Juz and deals almost exclusively with singling Allah out alone for worship.
What can we learn from this Juz?
1• Allah’s signs in creation are described and the pagans are invited to faith;
2• Man is warned against worshipping Satan;
3• Allah is well able to create and resurrect;
4• Allah’s Oneness evidenced through the uniqueness of creation and how nothing is able to create anything similar;
5• A discussion between the people of Paradise and the inhabitants of Hell showing the danger of evil companions;
6• Your Lord answers supplications, have you then turned to ask of Him?
7• The Prophet is reminded of the Messengers who came before him and to see how they faced trials with patience;
8• The fate of the pious and transgressors;
9• The story of Satan (Arabic: Iblis) arrogantly refusing to prostrate to Adam.
