A Summary of The Verses Being Recited On The 2nd Night Of Taraawee

A summary of the verses being recited.

2nd of Ramadhaan (Juzz 2)

Surah 2 – Baqarah –‘The Cow’ Continued…

Verses Description
2:142-167 The Ka’bah was now to be the centre of universal worship and the symbol of Islamic unity
2:168-242 The Islamic Ummah (brotherhood) having thus been established with its definite centre and symbol, ordinances are laid out for the social life of the community, with the proviso (2:177) that righteousness does not consist in formalities, but in faith, kindness, prayer, charity, probity, and patience under suffering. The ordinances relate to food and drink, bequests, fasts, jihad, wine and gambling, treatment of orphans and women, etc.
2:243-253 Lest the subject of jihad should be misunderstood, it is taken up again in the story of Saul, Goliath and David, in contrast to the story of Jesus.

PLEASE NOTE: These verses summarized into the table are based on one Juzz per night. The majority of masjids recite the full Qur’aan in the month in the taraawee prayers. So that works out as one juzz per night. However during the first four nights, I may be getting these ‘articles’ a day or two late, as my masjid is doing half a juzz per night (as that seems to be better for khushoo’).

So as for people who go to my masjid, then you may still want to check them via the mailing list rather than on here, as I’m gonna be going via the one juzz per night rota on this blog.

As for everyone else, then forgive me if there is a delay in the first four days, as they may be coming late…
