Yaa~Seen Indeed everything has a heart, and the heart of the Quran is Surah Ya Seen!

Surah Yaa~Seen Surah Yaa~Seen is devoted to RasulAllahSAW and the Revelation in the Quran that came through him. The abbreviated letters Yaa~Seen are usually construed as a title of RasulAllahSAW . This Surah is described as “the heart of the Quran”, as it concerns the central figure in the teaching of Islam and the central doctrine of Revelation and the Hereafter. RasulAllahSAW said: “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Quran is Surah Yaa~Seen. Anyone who recites this Surah gets the blessings equivalent to reading ten Quran.” [Tirmidhi] The ProphetSAW said, “I wish that it (Yaa~Seen) is fully retained in the heart of every member of my Ummah (community).” There are many blessings for reciting this Surah by anyone who does it for the pleasure of AllahSWT. AllahSWT grants him blessings equivalent to reciting the Quran ten times. For those who recite it regularly, AllahSWT removes calamities, hardships, and evil from one’s heart, increases one’s sustenance, and grants his Du’a. One who recites it in the morning, AllahSWT grants his Du’a for the day. And one who recites it at night, all his sins are forgiven. Reciting it on a person under evil spell makes the spell go away with the blessings of AllahSWT. Many Aulia of AllahSWT have said that if this Surah is recited at times of hardship or dire needs, AllahSWT makes things easy. To those who recite it: AllahSWT feeds the hungry, clothes those without clothes, give protection to those who are scared, removes hardships of the needy, frees those who are imprisoned, frees those under loans from the obligations, and fulfill the needs of the needy. Reciting it next to a sick person helps in AllahSWT providing Shifa (healing). And, reciting at the time of death brings AllahSWT mercy and blessing at the place and makes it easy for the dying person.

May Allah, the most Exalted and Glorious, fill our hearts with the love of the Glorious Qur’an; may the Infinitely Merciful One make the Qur’an the spring of our hearts, a soothing balm and healer of all our spiritual ailments and worries, our guide and light in our earthly life, and a companion and source of comfort for us in our graves, and finally our escort to the jannah, the eternal realm of bliss that Allah has promised His righteous servants-Aameen!

AllahSWT’s guidance in Surah Yaa Seen The main object of this Surah is to warn the non-believers about the consequences of not believing in the Prophethood of MuhammadSAW and of resisting and opposing it with tyranny, ridicule and mockery. Arguments are also given about Tawhïd (the Oneness of God), Risãlat (Prophethood) and the Hereafter from the signs of the universe and the use of common sense. 1. The Quran is revealed by AllahSWT – the most Powerful and the most Merciful, to warn the people who have not been warned by their ancestors. 2. Prophet MuhammadSWT is the Messenger of AllahSWT and his traditions are the Siratal Mustaqeem (the straight path to Jannah.) 3. Our obligation is only to deliver the message of AllahSWT – we are not the judge or the enforcers. Only those whom AllahSWT wills will be guided. To some sinners and arrogant people the doors of AllahSWT mercy is already closed. And AllahSWT is keeping an account of everything that we do in this world. 4.

In delivering the message of AllahSWT, we must do it very sincerely and unselfishly. Our only goal should be to invite them to AllahSWT and in the process helping our family, friends, and the mankind away from the punishment in the Hellfire.

5. We should reflect in the universal faculties that AllahSWT has created for us to have a comfortable life in this world – the fertile land, the food, the Sun and Moon, the transportation etc. And we must be ever thankful. 6. AllahSWT has sent messengers to guide us to the right path. Prophet MuhammadSAW was the last Messenger. He delivered the word of Allah to guide the believers and warn the nonbelievers. 7. The Day of Judgment will come one day. It will happen all of a sudden while people would be carrying out there normal routines of life. Everyone, including those who died in the past, will wake up from their sleep in the graves and will rush to Allah SWT for Judgment. On that Day, everyone will be treated fairly according to their deeds in this world. 8. Those who obey Him will be rewarded with the total bliss in the Jannah. Those who disobey and transgress will be punished in the Hellfire. 9. We must recognize that the Shaitan is our open enemy and his aim is to lead us to the Hellfire. 10. Total immersion in the worship of AllahSWT is the Siratal Mustaqeem (the straight path to Jannah.)

1. Ya-Sin is usually treated as a title of the holy Prophet SAW. HeSAW said; “Verily, AllahSWT has addressed me in Quran by seven names: Muhammad, Ahmed, Tahaa, Ya Seen, Al-Muzzammil, Al-Mudassir, and Abdullah SAW.” 2. The Book is Hakim – full of wisdom, because it is from the One who is All Wise. 3. It is made very clear and as a warning that the ProphetSAW is a messenger of AllahSWT and thus heSAW speaks the words of AllahSWT. So there should be no doubt about his message as being the divine message. 4. We ask AllahSWT in Surah Fatihah to guide us on the right path – here AllahSWT tells us that the path of the Prophet SAW is the straight path which leads to Jannah (Paradise.) This ayah also tells us that Quran and Sunnah are both divine guidance and erases the doubts of the people who do not pay attention to the Sunnah. 5. The Revelation is characterized by two attributes of Allah. It has force and power: for Allah is Exalted in Might and able to enforce His Will. And it brings a Message of hope and mercy; for Allah is Most Merciful. Thus it is warning to people who do not obey His commands – that the Quran is full of Allah’s mercy for us to earn a place in Jannah – but for those who are rebellious must know that Allah is All Powerful and He can enforce His will whenever He wishes. 6. The warning is in general global for those people who have not been warned in the near past (since in far past all people had received messengers from AllahSWT.) The Quran is also a warning for us – who have not taken the message of Quran seriously as a warning, i.e. those in contemporary times who have not internalized the message of Quran with an absolute certainty that the Hereafter and Day of Judgment are very real events that will happen on their times and those who do not follow the commandments in the Quran will be punished and they would not be able to use an excuse that they were not warned.

7. Laqad haq qal qaulu ‘alaa ak~sarihim fahum la yu’~minoon.

Indeed the Word (of punishment) has proved true against most of them, so they will not believe. 7 8. In~na ja’alna fee a’naaqihim agh~laalan fahiya ilal az~qaani fahum muq~mahoon.

Verily! We have put on their necks iron collars reaching to chins, so that their heads are forced up. 8

9. Wa ja'alna mim baini ai~dihim sad~danw wa min khal~fihim sad~dan fa agh~shai~naahum fahum la yub~siroon.

And We have put a barrier before them, and a barrier behind them, and We have covered them up, so that they cannot see. 10. Wa sawaa un ‘alai~him ‘a an~zar~tahum am lam tun~zirhum la yu’minoon.

It is the same to them whether you warn them or you warn them not, they will not believe. 11. In nama tun~ziru manit taba'az~zikra wa khashiyar Rah~maana bil ghaib fabash~ shir~hu bimagh~firatinw wa aj~rin kareem.

You can only warn him who follows the Reminder (the Quran), and fears the Most Beneficent (Allah) unseen. Give to such one the glad tidings of forgiveness, and a generous reward (i.e. Paradise). 11

12. In na nahnu nuhyil mauta wa nak~tubu ma qad~ damu wa aasaarahum wa kul la shai in ah~saina_hu fee imaamim mubin

SWT

28. After 27 Ayaat, this is the first time Allah mentions His punishment. This reflects how He is lot more merciful than His wrath. In a Hadiths Qudsi AllahSWT says that His Mercy would prevail His wrath. Allah SWT also says that when it is time for punishment, He does not need any big army of special forces like that of angels from sky. He can just say “Kun” and it happens. 29. Allah's Justice or Punishment does not necessarily come with pomp and circumstance, and the forces of human evil do not have the power to subdue them. A single mighty Blast-either the rumbling of an earthquake, or a great and violent wind-was sufficient in this case. Here AllahSWT demonstrates His mighty power; just with one command the nature destroys towns in split seconds. By comparison, imagine in the worldly affairs, the most powerful nation of all time in history is American power today, but will all the might they can conquer even small nations or prevent natural disasters of hurricanes and jungle fires etc. 30. Allah regrets the folly of men, especially as He cherishes them as His own servants.

41. The past history of his race takes us to the story of the Flood, which is symbolical of Allah's justice and mercy. Noah's Ark was a "Sign to all People": the story of the Ark remains an everlasting Sign and Warning to mankind-a Sign of deliverance to the righteous and of destruction to the wicked. Man's own personal experience is appealed to in every ship afloat: 42. The stately ships sailing through the seas, heavier than air, yet carrying man and his goods safely and smoothly across the waters, they are another Sign for man. Ships are not mentioned, but (vessels) like the Ark: they would cover all kinds of sea-craft, but also the modern aircraft, which "swims" through air instead of through water. 44. Allah has given man all these wonderful things in nature and utilities produced by the skill and intelligence which Allah has given to man. It is only Allah's Mercy that saves man from destruction for man's own follies, and that saving or the enjoyment of these utilities and conveniences he should not consider as eternal: they are only given for a time, in this life of probation.

48. Wa yaqu~loona mataa haazal w’adu in kun~tum saadi~qeen And they say: "When will this promise (i.e. Resurrection) be fulfilled, if you are truthful?" 48 49. Maa yan~zuroona il~la sai~hatanw waahidatan ta’khuzuhum wa hum yakhis~simoon

They wait only but for a single blast that will seize them while they are disputing (among themselves!) 50. Fala yas~tatee~oona tausi~yatanw wa la ila_ ahlihim yar~ji~oon

Then they will not be able to make a bequest, neither will they return to their family.

48. In addition to the arrogance and blasphemy, they not only refuse Faith, but they taunt the men of Faith: "If there is a Hereafter, tell us when it will be!" The answer is: "It will come sooner than you expect: you will yet be disputing about things of Faith and neglecting your opportunities in Life, when the Hour will sound, and you will have no time even to make your dispositions in this life: you will be cut off from everyone whom you thought to be near and dear to you, or able to help you! 52. The dead will rise as in a daze, and they will be confused in the new conditions! They will gradually regain their memory and their personality. They will be reminded that Allah in His grace and mercy had already announced the Hereafter in their probationary lives, and the word of Allah's messengers, which then seemed so strange and remote, was true and was now being fulfilled!

55. In~na as~haabal jan~natil yau~ma fi shugulin faa~kihoon

55. Note the gradation in the description. First, there is the nature of the joy therein. It will be a Garden i.e., everything beautiful to see, hear, feel, taste, and smell; delightfully green lawns, trees; the streams and the songs of birds; the flowers, the flavors of fruits; and the perfumes of flowers and scents. An active joy, without fatigue: a source of total joy without alloy. 56. Secondly, the joy or happiness is figured to be, not solitary, but shared by partners. 57. Thirdly, a total Bliss -- the Bliss in the Hereafter has an inner quality. 58. Fourthly, the highest grade of bliss, the salutation "Salaam (Peace!)" from Allah Most Merciful -- the final Goal. 59. Now contemplate the state of the Sinners in a graduated descent. In the first place, their state of isolation. From this Day of Judgment, they will no longer have the chance of being with the Blessed. The first feature of the Day of Judgment is that it is a Day of Separation. 60. Secondly, there is a gentle reproach to the wrong-doers. They are addressed as "children of Adam", to emphasize two facts, (1) that they have disgraced their ancestry, and (2) that Allah Most Merciful has throughout the ages continued to warn mankind again

63. Haazihil jahan~namul latee kun~tum tuadoon This is Hell which you were promised! 63 64. Is~lauhal yau~ma bima kun~tum tak~furoon Embrace (the Fire) this Day, for that you used to disbelieve! 65.

This Day, We shall seal up their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will bear witness to what they used to earn. 65 66. Wa lau nashaa’u lathamas~na ‘alaa a’yunihim fas~tabaqus~sirata fa an~naa yub~siroon

And if it had been Our Will, We would surely have wiped out (blinded) their eyes, so that they would struggle for the Path, how then would they see? 67. Wa lau nashaa’u lamasakh~naahum ‘alaa makaa~natihim famas~tata’u mudiy~yaw wa la yar~jioon

And if it had been Our Will, We could have transformed them (lifeless objects) in their places. Then they would not have been able to go forward (move about) nor they could have turned back.

SECTION 5 68. Wa man nu’am~mirhu nunak~kis~hu fil khalq;. afala ya’~qiloon

And he whom We grant long life, We reverse him in creation (weakness after strength). Will they not then understand? 68 69. Wa ma ‘al~lam~naahush~shira wa ma yam~baghil lah in huwa il~la zikrunw, wa quranum muboon

And We have not taught him (MuhammadSAW) poetry, nor is it worthy for him. This is only a Reminder and a plain Quran. 70. Liyun~zira man kaana haee~yanw wa yahiqal qaulu alal kaafireen

That it may warn him who would have life, and (that) the word may prove true against the nonbelievers Put a seal on it

63. The naked fact is now placed before them -the Hell,-the state of damnation, which they could so easily have avoided! 65. Hands and feet" in this connection are symbolical of all the instruments for action which they were given in this life. 68. Everything is possible with Allah. Contemplate the transformations he already undergoes in his present nature at different ages. As a child powers of mind and body are still undeveloped. As he grows, they grow, and certain moral qualities, such as courage,

71. Awalam yarau an~ na khalaq~na lahum mim~ma amilat aideena an~aaman fahum laha maalikoom

Do they not see that We have created for them of what Our Hands have created, the cattle, so that they are their owners. 71 72. Wa zal~lal~naaha lahum famin~ha raku~buhum wa min~ha ya’kuloon

And We have subdued them unto them so that some of them they have for riding and some they eat. 73. Wa lahum feeha mana~fi~oo wa masharib afala yash~kuroon

And they have (other) benefits from them (besides), and they get (milk) to drink, will they not then be grateful? 73 74. Wat~takhazu min doonil laahi aalihatal la'al~lahum yun~saroon

And they have taken besides Allah aliha (gods), hoping that they might be helped (by those so called gods) 75. La yas~tatee~oona nasrahum wa hum lahum jun~dum muh~daroon

71. If they are blind to other Signs of Allah, they can at least see the simple homely things of life in which they receive so many benefits from Allah's mercy. How it is that wild animal can be domesticated, and in domestication can be so useful to man? Man can use them for riding or for drought; he can use their flesh for food and drink their milk; he can use their hair or wool. 73. Such as skins for leather, furs for warmth, sheep's wool or camel's hair for blankets or textiles, musk for perfume, and so on. The whole argument turns on this. 'Our teaching is for your own benefit. We confer all these blessings on you, and yet ye turn away from the Giver of all, and run after your own vain imaginations! 76. If men are so foolish as to reject Allah, let not the men of Allah grieve over it. They should do their duty, and leave the rest to Allah. Allah knows all the open and secret motives that sway the wicked, and His Plan must ultimately prevail, however much appearances may be against it at any given time.
