A Summary of The Verses Being Recited On The 24th Night Of Taraawee

A summary of the verses being recited.

24th of Ramadhaan (Juzz 24)

To be recited Thursday Night (Sep 02)

Chapter 39 – az-Zumar – “The Groups”

Summary: This Meccan chapter deals almost exclusively with singling Allah out alone for worship. The command to worship Him alone is explicitly stated, shown in the example of the Prophet, and explained in parable form. Glad tidings are conveyed to the people of Tawhid and the greatness of the Book is highlighted coupled with a description of how the true believer receives it. Repeated throughout the chapter are illustrations and reminders about the life to come and Signs in Allah’s creation are described. The chapter closes with a verse depicting scene of devoted worship: the angels glorifying Allah, Judgment having been passed.

Chapter 40 – Ghafir – “The Forgiver”

Summary: A Meccan Surah opening with the statement that Allah is the Forgiver and Acceptor of Repentance and this is the theme of the whole chapter. The Surah is also called “The Believer” taken after vv. 28-45 which describe a believer, in the house of Pharaoh, to dissuade his people from opposing Moses. There are two more recurring themes: disputing Allah’s truth and calling on Him. The central portion of the Surah deals with the story of Pharaoh and Moses, and showing that false pride is trait in man making him think that the world revolves around him. The last part of the Surah deals with Signs in creation and Allah’s grace, a repudiation of polytheism and the destruction of previous nations.

Chapter 41 – Fussilat – “Made Distinct”

Summary: The Meccan Surah continues the theme of the previous chapter and deals with the arrogance of the disbelievers, the truthfulness of the Qur’an, Tawhid and Resurrection. The title is used to describe the Qur’an in verses 3 and 44. Several references are made to the senses which the disbelievers shut off from perceiving the truth and which will then testify against their owners on the Last Day.
