Shaikh Mishary Alafasy
Saad Al Ghamdi
Mahir Al Muaiqely
Surah Yasin was revealed in Makkah with eighty three verses
arranged into five sections. Surah Yasin begins with affirming of
Muhammad’s r prophethood by invoking the Qur’an, the book of
wisdom and assuring him that he is on the right guidance.
Then it proceeds to describe the fate of the inhabitants of a certain
settlement; they repudiated the prophets sent to them and invited
Allah’s I wrath on themselves which wiped them off the face of earth.
This account of the attitude of the people of the settlement makes a
very significant point; the truth which the high, proud and
sophisticated people of the city failed to see was recognised by a
simple, lowly man from the suburbs.
The account of the ruined settlement is given as a stern warning to the
disbelievers of Makkah whose vanity made them reject Muhammed r
as a prophet of Allah I although they knew fully well the faultless,
unimpeachable character of the prophet and the clear, self
explanatory truth of the message.
After narrating the story of the settlement the surah once again calls
upon people to observe and ponder over the vast and varied
phenomena of nature – from the stars and planets to the rich
productivity of earth – and decide who else but the supreme being
who created and subjected the entire universe to an ordered,
integrated system is worthy of worship.
Then the surah turns to the question of resurrection and answers the
disbelievers’ assertion that it is impossible to revive the dead by putting
together the bits and pieces of their dried, crumbly bones with a
simple, satisfactory argument: he who created man from a mere drop of
water has also the power to recreate the dead on the day of resurrection.
The surah discusses the crooked, avaricious mentality of the capitalist
who denies responsibility of helping the poor and the needy on various
pre-texts, and even goes so far as to assert that why he should spend his
wealth on those whom Allah I has not chosen to make prosperous.
The surah also declares that the prophet is not a poet and that what he
preaches is the Message of Allah I whose knowledge has no bounds,
and not imaginary tales, exaggerated descriptions and false assertions
(which are the stock-in-trade of decadent poets).
