Surat An-Nāzi`āt (Those who drag forth) - سورة النازعات

  • filter_vintage

    Period of Revelation: This Surah was revealed after Surah An-Naba. It was revealed during the early period of the period of the Prophet’s residence at Makkah. Major Issues, Divine Laws and Guidance:

    • Death, the Day of Resurrection and life after death.
    • The story of the Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) when he called Fir’aun (Pharaoh) towards his Rabb, he denied Allah and was subsequently punished.
    • The creation of man is not harder than the creations of the heavens, earth and its contents.
    • Punishment and reward on the Day of Judgement. 
    The theme of this Surah is resurrection, life after death and a warning about the consequences of rejecting the Prophet of Allah. The Surah opens with oaths by the angels who take the soul at death, who hasten to carry out Allah’s Commands and those who conduct the affairs of the universe according to the Divine Will, in order to assure that the Resurrection will certainly come to pass and the life after death will certainly take place. Then, briefly relating the story of Prophet Musa (Moses) and Fir’aun (Pharaoh), the fate that Fir’aun met in consequence of denying the Rasool and rejecting the guidance brought by him. The people of Makkah are warned that if they do not learn a lesson from this story and change their ways and attitude accordingly, they may also meet the same fate. Arguments are then given in support of the Hereafter and the life after death. Attention is drawn to the Earth and provisions that have been arranged in it for the sustenance of various creatures. It is further clarified that everything testifies to the fact that it has been created with great wisdom by Allah in fulfillment of some special purpose. After pointing out this, the question has been left to the intellect of man to ponder and to form an opinion of whether calling man to account for his sins after delegating authority and responsibility, would be in keeping with the demands of a wise system, or should man’s life end without accountability after committing all sorts of misdeeds in the world? Should he perish and mix in the dust forever and never be called to account for the responsibility and the authority entrusted to him?
