 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


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


وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لَوْلَا نُزِّلَ عَلَيْهِ ٱلْقُرْءَانُ جُمْلَةً وَٰحِدَةً كَذَٰلِكَ لِنُثَبِّتَ بِهِۦ فُؤَادَكَ وَرَتَّلْنَٰهُ تَرْتِيلًا 32

32.  And those who disbelieve say: Why is the Qur’an not revealed unto him all at once? (It is revealed) thus that We may strengthen thy heart therewith; and We have arranged it in right order. 32.  Wa  qaalallaziina  kafaruu  law-laa  nuzzila  ‘alayhil-Qur-‘aanu  jumlatanw-Waahidah.  Kazaalika  linusabbita  bihii  fu-‘aadaka  wa  rattalNaahu  tartiilaa.


When a mankind adopts any matter, he becomes more familiar of it day by day; even it becomes his such habit that he does not feel comfort without it. Would that he had reflected before adopting that matter, that whether it is better in favor of him or worse? Holy Qur’an is aware of mankind’s this nature, so it seems that It has been showing his favor everywhere. Its only aim is that the human beings should not become collectively habitual of any evil. In other words we can say that It desires to see the human customs and traditions established on useful matters only. It cannot bear that their foundation is established on such matters which consequently may be harmful for human beings in any case. Unfortunately in the Arabic society some such matters had been in force before Islam, which might be cause of ruin for mankind in future.


Holy Qur’an desired to revise them. Many people of Makkah were enraged and they employed their entire strength against the Holy Qur’an. From among other matters, one of them has been discussed in this verse that they say: Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) claims that he is a Messenger of Allaah Almighty and says that Holy Qur’an is a Scripture sent down by Him, then Why is the Qur’an not revealed unto him all at once? Why are Its verses revealed by degrees and step by step?


It is commanded: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): The verses are revealed in right order by degrees for the purpose that you may understand its meanings clearly and acquire strong belief, so that your heart may be stronger and you may act upon Our Commandments easily.
