Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

With the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

"Indeed this is certainty in its true sense..." 56:95
"So, proclaim the purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent..." 56:96

COMMENTARY: At the end of this subject the Qur'an says: "Indeed this is certainty in its true sense..." None of the reward or punishment mentioned in the preceding verses is refutable because they are a dead certainty that has no room for any doubt or suspicion.

(So, proclaim the purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent..." 56:96). The Surah concludes with an imperative addressed to the Messenger of Allah to pronounce the Tasbih of His Lord. This includes all kinds of Tasbihat (rememberances)- within Salaah and outside Salaah. Salaah itself is sometimes referred to as Tasblh. Thus, this verse enjoins to keep up the regular performance of Salaah.

A simple religion for all who seek clarity,
Testification of faith in the almighty and his messengers,
Acceptance of faith, an important prerequisite,
No matter the colour, no matter the race, for one and all, encouraging parity.

Greetings of peace, prophets of mercy,
A book to guide us from darkness to light,
Lessons aplenty are promised within,
A well of knowledge for all who're thirsty.

Life and death, a universal reality,
Rejection of which, is shameful ignorance,
Living without purpose, an existential crisis,
Hereby is thus an invitation to join the greatest religion of humanity....


(Abdullah Panjwani)
