There are many different surahs in the Quran, and each one has a unique message for believers. One of the most significant surahs is surah muzamil, which contains important lessons for those who want to lead a righteous life. This surah is especially relevant during the month of Ramadan, when Muslims are striving to improve their spiritual state.
Introduce surah muzamil and its significance
This is a surah that begins with Allah’s Name. It includes the basic principles of faith, Tauhid al-Rububiyah, Tauhid al-Uluhiyah, Tauhid an-Nasut and Tauhid ar-Rahmah. These four fundamentals are among those things that are included in all divine scriptures sent to humanity.
There is a narration from Imam al-Sadiq (as) about this surah. He says: “Muzamil is one of the names of Hadrat Ibrahim and in ‘Surah Hud, it has been mentioned as Azar, whereas its reality was that when Hadrat Ibrahim said: ‘My Lord! Show me how Thou wilt quickens the dead’, Allah revealed to him: ‘Take four birds, draw them to thee, then cut their bodies into pieces and mingle the flesh with the plants of the earth, then lay it as a bait for beasts; they will come there to thee, from every quarter. Thus shalt thou knows the One Who knows all the secret things “.
Discuss the different interpretations of the surah
The Surah Muzammil is the 73rd surah of the Quran. It has 7 verses and it is an early Makki surah in which Allah SWT talks about how to succeed in this world and in the hereafter by following His path, inviting people to Islam.
The word Muzammil means one who covers up or envelops. This surah is so named because it begins with the mention of how one should stay away from sins, as sins are like darkness which can envelop a person if he or she does not refrain from them.
The surah talks about the best way to achieve success in this world and in the hereafter, by following Allah’s path. The surah starts with Allah SWT saying:
“All praise is to Allah, who has sent down the Book upon his servant (Muhammad) so that he may bring mankind out of darkness into light”. (Al-Muzammil 1-2). This is followed by how one should constantly remember Allah and constantly follow His path both in words and deeds:
“So remember Me and I will remember you. And thank Me and do not be ungrateful to Me.” (Al-Muzammil, 7). This then leads into how those who follow Allah’s path shall soon attain salvation:
Explain how to apply the teachings of surah muzamil in our lives
In surah muzammil we are taught to invoke Allah’s protection from the evil one, shaytan. We need to learn this surah so that it can be an ongoing part of our lives and a way for us to seek refuge in Allah from Shaytan.
Every surah of the Qur’an is for our benefit and surah muzammil is no different. It is a surah that we have been blessed with to use as a guide in times where we feel weak, tired, or faint-hearted. We need this surah to give us strength when we are feeling low and it is only by the grace of Allah that surah muzammil is part of the Holy Qur’an for us to benefit from.
Read surah muzammil with tajweed
Read surah muzammil with tajweed that gives us hope, strength, and support in times of weakness. It fills you with optimism and reminds us all how blessed we are to be Muslims, to worship Allah, and to guide ourselves with His words.
Surah muzammil is surah 7 of the Holy Qur’an and we will be looking at some Tafseer, and surah muzammil with tajweed or commentary from surahs found in Tafsir Ibn Kathir so that we can understand more about this surah.
The surah is rich with spiritual meaning and offers guidance on how to lead a good life. Although there are many different interpretations of the surah, I believe that the main message is to have faith in Allah and do our best to follow his commandments. We can apply the teachings of surah muzamil in our lives by being patient and steadfast in times of difficulty, working hard to improve ourselves, and remembering Allah during our daily prayers. May we all benefit from the wisdom contained in this beautiful surah.
