Virtues of Surah Mursalat Benefits (Chapter 77)
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In The Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Surah Mursalat is makki’ Surat and it has 50 ayaat.This Surah belongs to the early Meccan period and its name, Mursalat is taken from the first verse. After making some oaths, the text refers to the horrors of the Hereafter for those who reject the Truth.
The refrain,“Ah woe, that Day to the Rejecters of Truth” is repeated ten times in the Surah and every time follows a new topic.In addition to the oaths, the Surah gives some information about the fervent Hereafter and its grievous events, and then repeats the same refrain:“Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth.”
In the second stage, we learn about the woeful story of the sinners of past generations.
In the third stage, it lets us know a little about the creation’s specialities.
In the fourth stage, we are informed of some divine Blessings on the Earth.
In the fifth stage, there are some messages in which the rejecters are warned of their painful penalty.
In every stage there is also a hint to an enlightening point and then the refrain follows. Sometimes, the blessings of just men are mentioned to show that both rewards and penalties are found, but the former is used for justification and the latter is for warning.
The refrain, in this Surah, has an association with the refrain in Surah Rahman, No. 55, but with the difference that: Surah Rahman speaks about the Blessings, but Surat Mursalat describes the rejecters’ punishments.
