بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In The Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Surah Takwir is a‘makki’ Surah has 29 ayaat.This Surah is among the Meccan Surahs and there is a variety of evidence to verify this fact. For instance, the Surah denotes that the enemies of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) called him mad and this treatment used to happen in the early periods of his prophecy in Mecca, when his enemies did not take his statements seriously and were quite careless about them.
This Surah can be divided into mainly two themes:
- The first theme is pointed out in the beginning verses of the Surah; those which contain the signs about the Hereafter and the occurrence of some great changes regarding the end of this world and the beginning of the Next World; the Resurrection.
- The second theme is in a mystical passage showing how the Great Qur’anic Revelation was true, and was revealed through the angel Gabriel, and which has a remarkable effect on man’s soul for his spiritual guidance. This part is accompanied by some enlightening oaths; full of meaning.
There are many traditions narrated about the importance of this Surah
- In a tradition from the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) that says: “He who recites Sura Takwir (The Folding Up) will be saved by Allah from being exposed to shame when the book of deeds will be laid open.”
- Another tradition from the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) says: “He who wishes to look at me on the Day of Judgment, should recite Surat Takwir (The Folding Up)”.
