As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters.

Summary

Today’s selection is from Surah 39, Az-Zumar or the Crowds, verses 22-41. In this selection we learn that the Qur’an is consistent in its verses but repeats its teachings in different ways. God has cited every kind of parable in the Qur’an so that people may clearly understand. Who can be more wicked than the one who invents a lie against God? Lastly, if God intends to harm you, no one can save you and if God intends to bless you, no one can prevent that either.

Summary

Today’s selection is from Surah 39, Az-Zumar or the Crowds, verses 1-21. In this selection, the mushrikeen try to justify their worship of saints by saying, ‘they bring us closer to Allah’. On the Day of Judgment, no one shall bear the burdens of another. Believers who cannot practice their faith should immigrate to a place where they can practice. Lastly, no one can be rescued from punishment once the sentence has been decreed by God.
