Virtues of Surah Inshirah Benefits (Chapter 94)
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In The Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Surah Inshirah (The Expansion) Number of Verses: 8
It is commonly said that this Sura was revealed soon after Surat Duha and its contents confirm this since, again in this Surat some of the Divine Bounties are counted for the holy Prophet (S).
In fact, there were three important Bounties mentioned in the previous Surat (Duha) and there are three magnificent Bounties mentioned in Inshirah too. Those Bounties were material and spiritual Bounties, whereas in this Surat, all are spiritual ones.
The theme in this Surat, mainly pivots on three different subjects:
The first is the expression of these triple Bounties; the second is the good news for the Prophet (S) informing him that his burden and difficulties of his prophetic mission will be removed soon; and the third is that attention should be paid to Allah, alone, and be hopeful and encouraged in worship and supplication to Him.
As it was mentioned before, according to the traditions of Ahlul-Bait (as) these two Suras are considered as one and then, in recitation of prayers, both of them are recited to form one complete Surah.
A careful examination of the contents of these two Suras leaves no doubt that they are quite closely related to each other. Again, a similar case is found for Surah Fil and Sura t Quraish which will be dealt with later.
The above statements make it clear that this Surat (Inshirah) has been revealed in Mecca, but with regard to the verse:
“And We exalted for you your reputation”,
some believe that it has been revealed in Medina when the name of the Prophet (S) and Islam had been known everywhere. But, this statement is not enough to prove their idea, because the Prophet (S), with all the problems that he had in Mecca, was completely known and his rise and invitation to Islam were talked about everywhere and in most gatherings, and also his reputation was spread in all parts of Arabia, especially in Medina, by the annual gathering of Hajj pilgrims.
Hadith on Surah Inshirah : Anas bin Malik (رضي الله عنه) reported that
Gabriel (عليه السلام) came to the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) while he was playing with his playmates (in his childhood when he lived among Banu Sa’d). He took hold of him and lay him prostrate on the ground and tore open his breast and took out the heart from it and then extracted a blood-clot out of it and said:
That was the part of Satan in thee. And then he washed it with the water of Zamzam in a golden basin and then it was joined together and restored to it place. The boys came running to his mother, i. e. his nurse, and said: Verily Muhammad has been murdered. They all rushed toward him (and found him all right) His color was changed, Anas said. I myself saw the marks of needle on his breast.
Sahih Muslim 162 c
