اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يَسْتَحْىٖٓ اَنْ يَّضْرِبَ مَثَلًا مَّا بَعُوْضَةً فَمَا فَوْقَهَا ۭ فَاَمَّا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا فَيَعْلَمُوْنَ اَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ مِنْ رَّبِّهِمْ ۚ وَاَمَّا الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا فَيَقُوْلُوْنَ مَاذَآ اَرَادَ اللّٰهُ بِهٰذَا مَثَلًا ۘ يُضِلُّ بِهٖ كَثِيْرًا ۙ وَّيَهْدِىْ بِهٖ كَثِيْرًا ۭ وَمَا يُضِلُّ بِهٖٓ اِلَّا الْفٰسِقِيْن

The first placement of the root word وَاَمَّا is in Verse # 26 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is paraphrasing an example about a mosquito. A minor creature encapsulated with massive attributes. If we contextualize the first placement of the word وَاَمَّا bearing in mind that a mendicant who is at your doorstep asking for help and assistance. His status in front of you is very low. Now recite the above Ayat you will acknowledge the beauty and perfection of Allah Subhan O Talah. But as for those who disbelieve, they say, “What did Allah intend by this as an example?” He misleads many thereby and guides many thereby. Beggar is a sign from Allah Subhan O Talah.

The last placement of the root word وَاَمَّا is in Verse # 08 Chapter # 101 in which Allah Subhan O Talah concluding that if your behavior and attitude is not good then(وَاَمَّا مَنْ خَفَّتْ مَوَازِيْنُهٗ) your scale would be very light on the day of judgment. Treat a beggar with a good heart and positive feelings to avoid any inconvenience.


The first placement of the root word بِنِعْمَةِ is in Verse # 06 Chapter # 01 and last placement of the root word Verse # 08 Chapter # 102 . Allah Subhan O Talah is articulating that a mendicant is a favor upon you. Take care of him/her in manner as you take care of Allah the blessings.


The first placement of the root word رَبِّكَ is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 01 and last placement of the root word is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 114 .


Allah Subhan O Talah is revealing the disbelievers belief especially Jews and Christian because they were the people of book .And they know all the signs of Rasool Allah as a messenger in their books.

In parallel , 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.

وَاِذَا لَقُوا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا قَالُوْٓا اٰمَنَّا ښ وَاِذَا خَلَا بَعْضُھُمْ اِلٰى بَعْضٍ قَالُوْٓا اَتُحَدِّثُوْنَھُمْ بِمَا فَتَحَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيْكُمْ لِيُحَاۗجُّوْكُمْ بِهٖ عِنْدَ رَبِّكُمْ ۭ اَفَلَاتَعْقِلُوْنَ

The first placement of the root word فَحَدِّثْ is in Verse # 76 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is mocking Jews and Christian on their conditions how miserable they were. They were in a dual state of mind either to accept Rasool Allah(SAW) as a messenger of God or deny the reality which was explained in Torah about the upcoming Prophet. Allah Subhan O Talah presented their internal discussion in the Holy Qur’an and the logic they were building when discussing Rasool Allah(SAW) as the Messenger of God in their conversation.

يَوْمَىِٕذٍ تُحَدِّثُ اَخْبَارَهَا

The last placement of the root word فَحَدِّثْ is in Verse # 04 Chapter # 99 in which Allah Subhan O Talah concluding his remarks in profound correlation. Even though people of the book were discussing the status of Rasool Allah(SAW) behind the doors. On the day of Judgement earth will reveal all the truth. What are the conspiracy theories fabricated against the Rasool Allah(SAW)? Allah Subhan O Talah is maintaining the complete record of not only what had been discussed from Adam(A.S) but also what would be discussed up to the day of Judgement.


Rollercoaster ride of life will present challenges , difficulties , helplessness and mockery from our opponents . Darkness will cover you . In those moments of life think about the Rasool Allah(SAW) status how he surpass the challenges. Remember about the abundance of Niamah’s(Blessings) Allah Subhan O Talah showered upon you. Be thankful for what has been given to you and also for what has been delayed or denied to you. Stay positive and embrace gratitude. Your time will come and you will rise again.
