Virtues of Surah Maun Benefits (Chapter 107)
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In The Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
(Neighbourly Needs) Number of Verses: 7
Surah Manu (Arabic: سورة الماعون, “Small Kindnesses, Almsgiving, Have You Seen”) is the 107th sura of the Qur’an with 7 ayat. Many commentators believe that this Surah was revealed at Mecca. The tone of the verses, which are short and awakening about the Hereafter, and the deeds of the deniers of the Judgement Day, attests to this idea.
On the whole, the deeds and characteristics of the deniers of the Hereafter are stated in five references. Consequently, they deny the Final Judgement, repulse giving charity on the path of Allah, or helping the orphan and the indigent. They are heedless of their prayers, by saying them only hypocritically, and refuse to supply even neighbourly needs.
On the occasion of the Surah’s revelation, some have said that it was revealed about Abu-Sufyan who used to slaughter two big camels every day from which he and his men ate. But one day it happened that an orphan came to his door and asked for some help. Abu-Sufyan beat him with his stick and repulsed him.
Some others have said that the verse was revealed about Walid-ibn-i-Muqayrah or ‘As-ibn-i–Wa’il.
