#23. Surat Al-Layl – The Night (Part 2)


Watch Dr Musharraf Hussain sharing his thoughts and analysis of Surat Al-Layl. This is an early Makkan surat with the central theme of diversity in human endeavours, enterprises and efforts. However, the primary choice confronting people is between good or evil and practising moral values.

Translation

In the name of Allah, the Kind, the Caring.

But for the miserly, who thinks he is self-sufficient 9 and denies common good, 10 We shall make his work difficult. 11 His wealth will not benefit him when he falls into Hell.

Humans are spoilt for choice

12 Our role is to provide guidance; 13 the Hereafter and the world are Ours. 14 I have warned you about a raging Fire; 15 where the wicked will go, 16 who denied and turned away. 17 But the one who was mindful will be kept away from it, 18 he gave his wealth in charity to purify himself. 19 Not as payment for favours received, 20 but longed for the pleasure of His Lord, the Highest, 21 and he will be pleased with the outcome.
