Historical Background

It is said that the Revelation (wahy) was paused for a while, and Allah’s Messenger was extremely sad. Rasool Allah(SAW) was so sad at the pause of revelation, and the polytheists[those who have belief in many different gods] (i.e. Um Jameel – the wife of Abu Lahab) said; we see that your Master has said goodbye to you (wadda’aka – abandoned you) (qalla’ak – displeased with you). So it is said that this surah was a response to that.

Today we will study Verse # 01 , Chapter # 93 Surah Ad-Dhuha.

  • What would happen to Earth if the Sun suddenly disappeared?
  • How long could humans survive on Earth if the Sun went out?
