This Chapter was revealed in Makkah

Chapter Furqaan”- {The Criterion (of Right and Wrong)} – 25

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

According to the order of Chapters, this is twenty fifth Surah, which was revealed during middle times (of Apostleship) of the Messenger’s stay at Makkah (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Furqaan means “Criterion (Standard of Judging that what is right and what is wrong). It has been described in this Chapter that Rightful Deity is Allaah Almighty and worshiping any other than Him is mere cheating. Allaah Almighty (God) is only One, and meditating in strange arrangements of the creature is sufficient for knowing Him. The people, who do not reflect, go astray. Muhammad, the last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has been sent along with Holy Qur’an for warning them. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has come to frighten them from the consequences of infidelity and ascribing plurality to Allaah Almighty. His good natures, unselfishness and good manners are open tokens of being his Prophet-hood. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) will cause to hear the people; verses of Holy Qur’an, in which the lesson of God’s Oneness has been taught, vice of belief in a plurality of Allaah Almighty has been described and it has been urged that they should believe in the Day of Resurrection.


On the Day of General Resurrection, Allaah’s disbelievers will be thrown into the Hell. They will lose their senses when they will see its terrible form. No one will be able to have them released from its torment. Their false gods will reprove them. Neither the bribe will be useful there and nor they will find any helper.


Contrary to them, the good people; slaves and believers of Allaah Almighty will be entered into the Gardens. At that time, the Infidels will be afflicted severely that “God grant! If we had obeyed the Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), we would have been saved from painful doom. The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) will give evidence against them that he caused to understand them very much but they did not admit and remained busy in their personal works by putting the Holy Qur’an behind. They tried to produce doubts in this Holy Scripture.


After that, the attention has been drawn towards circumstances of those nations which falsified the Prophets (peace be upon them) of their times, failed in the world and deserved the punishment of the Doomsday. Then open signs concerning knowing Allaah Almighty in the world have been described and it has been instructed to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) that he should keep turning his attention only to Allaah Almighty. If these people do not believe in Him and do not inflict Him as “The Beneficent”, then they will be punished.


In the last Section, habits and natures of true Muslims have been explained, and it has been described that certainly they will be punished who will not believe in Allaah Almighty.
