The Night When It Covers With Darkness,

We will continue our relational study of Surat Ad-Dhuha (Arabic – الضحى‎) Verse # 02, Chapter # 93. How profoundly Allah Subhan O Talah is connecting each word of the Holy Qur’an with another word to elaborate the complete context of an Ayat.

In the first verse, Surat Ad-Dhuha Allah Subhan O Talah mentioned وَالضُّحٰى morning brightness. However, Look at the details in Verse # 02, Chapter # 93. One should understand a rudimentary concept that when the night will take place for sure darkness will emerge. So why Allah Subhan O Talah is mentioning meticulous details about the night. The opening Ayat وَالضُّحٰى is only for Rasool Allah(SAW). When you are depressed, tense when you are stuck in a rut. Just imagine the situation of Rasool Allah(SAW). A person bestowed with revelation and from last six month His Master kind of forgot Him. Keep in mind that for Six months revelation was stopped. Rasool Allah (SAW) was depressed and in despair. On top of that people in Makkah were gossiping about the status of Rasool Allah(SAW) as a messenger of Allah Subhan O Talah. Allah Subhan O Talah revealed these Verses(Aayat).

وَالَّيْلِ اِذَا سَـجٰى

And [by] the night when it covers with darkness,

In life when you encounter challenges, hurdles, adversity, and cataclysmic events. Remind yourself even the Messenger of Allah was in that situation. In the upcoming Verses(Aayat) we will examine how we can overcome negativity.

Allah Subhan O Talah honored the Rasool Allah(SAW) with the revelation at the age of 40 at Hira Mount (Jabal Al Nour). Allah Subhan O Talah invited Moses(A.S) for 40 nights at Toor(Mount Sinai) mountain. An astonishing correlation between Moses(A.S) and Rasool Allah (SAW) is recorded in the first placement of لَيْلَةً is in Verse # 51 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah [وَاِذْ وٰعَدْنَا مُوْسٰٓى اَرْبَعِيْنَ لَيْلَةً ثُمَّ اتَّخَذْتُمُ الْعِجْلَ مِنْۢ بَعْدِهٖ وَاَنْتُمْ ظٰلِمُوْنَ And [recall] when We made an appointment with Moses for forty nights. Then you took [for worship] the calf after him, while you were wrongdoers.]

The last placement of the لَيْلَةُ is in Verse # 03 Chapter # 97 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is referring to a one night which is far better than a thousand months. Yeah, you are right its لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْر, Moses(A.S) blessed 40 nights and Ummah of Rasool Allah(SAW) blessed with one night [The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.].


The first placement of the word اِذًا is in Verse # 145 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O is advocating the change of the Qibla. Allah Subhan O Talah unmasking the reality of Israelites and Christianity. They both are not agreed on one qibla. So you do not bother yourself with them. Neither you will follow their qibla. Nor they both follow one another’s qibla.

وَلَىِٕنْ اَتَيْتَ الَّذِيْنَ اُوْتُوا الْكِتٰبَ بِكُلِّ اٰيَةٍ مَّا تَبِعُوْا قِبْلَتَكَ ۚ وَمَآ اَنْتَ بِتَابِــعٍ قِبْلَتَهُمْ ۚ وَمَا بَعْضُهُمْ بِتَابِــعٍ قِبْلَةَ بَعْضٍ ۭ وَلَىِٕنِ اتَّبَعْتَ اَھْوَاۗءَھُمْ مِّنْۢ بَعْدِ مَا جَاۗءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ ۙاِنَّكَ اِذًا لَّمِنَ الظّٰلِمِيْنَ

And if you brought to those who were given the Scripture every sign, they would not follow your qibla. Nor will you be a follower of their qibla. Nor would they be followers of one another’s qibla. So if you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, indeed, you would then be among the wrongdoers.

The last placement of the word اِذَا is Verse # 05 Chapter # 113 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is exposing their حَسَدَ . on the good fortunes of Muslim Ummah. Having Makkah alMukarramah as their Qibla.

وَمِنْ شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ اِذَا حَسَدَ

حَاسِدٍ = Someone wishing to have all the good possessions or fortunes of others

حَسَدَ = heartburning; jealousy


The first and last placement of the word سَـجىٰ is in Verse #02 Chapter # 93 .So those who are jealous . Allah Subhan O Talah is covering them in darkness.

اسير – سجين is meant as Prisoner . In other words Allah Subhan O Talah is imprisoning those who are involved in the jealousy of Rasool Allah (SAW) , that prison is سَـجىٰ covered with darkness.
