As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters.

Summary

Today’s selection is from Surah 44, Adh-Dukhân or the Smoke, verses 30-42. These verses tell of the deliverance of the Children of Israel by God and how they were chosen above the nations of the world in spite of their weaknesses.

This is a very short series of verses so I also included some tafseer about the people of Tubba’ who are mentioned in verse 37 as well as an explanation of the “Day of Sorting Out” in verse 40.
