Commentary

 

Hawnun – (modestly), it aims that they do not walk upon the earth giving their’s self airs; haughtily; looking hither and thither with a sharp glance, but they walk modestly; humbly, slowly and looking below.

 

Garaama – (anguish, that disaster or misfortune which torments and does not let alone), origin of this word is garam, which means “to suffer a turn of fortune, to insist upon, to drop behind such as to make the man helpless”.

 

Rahmaan – (The Beneficent), It is second name of Allaah Almighty.

 

The attributes which should be in a mankind, have been described in this Section. Every mankind should live in this world having these qualities.

 

It is commanded: Faithful slaves of The Beneficent:

 

  • Are they who walk upon the earth with dignity, depth of thought and modestly.

 

  • They answer: Peace! when the foolish ones address them so that the evil may not spread.

 

  • They spend the night before their Lord, prostrate and standing.

 

  • They pray: Our Lord! Avert from us the doom of Hell, because that doom is anguish for them to whom it followed. Keep us away from the Hell, because the worst place for living is the same without any doubt! (Amen).
