Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Section/Ruku 1 [Verses 1 to 8]: Invitation to the Truth:
Chapter 41: (Ha Mim)
(Revealed at Makkah: 6 sections; 54 verses)

1. Introduction:

This chapter bears the name of its initial letters, Ha Mim, or the name Ha Mim Sajdah. It is also known as Fussilat, which means a thing made plain, the word occurring in v. 3. It is the second chapter of the Ha Mim group. As regards its subject-matter, and date of revelation, see introductory note to the last chapter. The first section contains an invitation to the acceptance of the Truth; the second gives a warning in case of rejection; the third refers to the evidence of man’s own faculties against the rejection of Truth; the fourth shows that believers are strengthened by inspiration; and the fifth points to the effect of revelation, which gives life to those who are morally and spiritually dead. But if warnings and arguments are not heeded, the doom is inevitable, the signs of which could be witnessed in the gradual spread of Truth. This is stated in the sixth section.

2. Translation:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1 Beneficent God!

2 A revelation from the Beneficent, the Merciful.

3 A Book of which the verses are made plain, an Arabic Qur’an for a people who know —

4 Good news and a warning. But most of them turn away, so they hear not.

5 And they say: Our hearts are under coverings from that to which thou callest us, and there is a deafness in our ears, and there is a veil between us and thee,a so act, we too are acting.

6 Say: I am only a mortal like you. It is revealed to me that your God is one God, so keep in the straight path to Him, and ask His protection. And woe to the polytheists!

7 Who give not the poor-rate, and who are disbelievers in the Hereafter.

8 Those who believe and do good, for them is surely a reward never to be cut off.

3. Commentary:

5a. Note that the coverings of the hearts, the deafness of the ears and the hanging of the veils are used simply to indicate their own determined rejection of the Truth. They resolved neither to open their hearts, lest the Truth should enter them, nor to lend their ears so that they might even hear the preaching of the Prophet. In fact, it was their own act which brought about that consequence. [Back to verse 5]
