memorizing surah al a'la

this week my task is to memorize the surah in my quran class.

find a good article on it here.

Surah Al-A'la = The Most High
Number of Surah (chapter) = 87
Number of Ayah (verses)= 19
Place of revelation = Makkah

The Surah taken its name from the word Al-A'la in its first verse.

This Surah was revealed in Makkah before the migration to Al-Madinah. The proof of this is what Al-Bukhari recorded from Al-Bara' bin `Azib, that he said, "The first people to come to us (in Al-Madinah) from the Companions of the Prophet were Mus`ab bin `Umayr and Ibn Umm Maktum, who taught us the Qur'an; then `Ammar, Bilal and Sa`d came. Then `Umar bin Al-Khattab came with a group of twenty people, after which the Prophet came. I have not seen the people of Al-Madinah happier with anything more than their happiness with his coming (to Al-Madinah). This was reached to such an extent that I saw the children and little ones saying, `This is the Messenger of Allah who has come.' Thus, he came, but he did not come until after I had already recited (i.e., learned how to recite)(Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most High.) (87:1) as well as other Surahs similar to it.'' It has been confirmed in the Two Sahihs that the Messenger of Allah said to Mu`adh, (Why didn't you recite "Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most High,''; "By the sun and its brightness,'' and "By the night when it envelopes.'')

Imam Ahmad recorded from An-Nu`man bin Bashir that the Messenger of Allah recited Surat Al-A`la (chapter 87) and Surat Al-Ghashiyh (chapter 88) in the two `Id prayers. If the `Id prayer fell on Friday, he would recite them in both prayers (`Id and Salat Al-Jumu`ah).

Muslim also recorded this in his Sahih, as well as Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah. The wording of Muslim and the Sunan compilers says, "He used to recite Surat Al-A`la (chapter 87) and Surat Al-Ghashiyh (chapter 88) for the two `Ids and Jumu`ah. If they occurred on the same day, he would recite them in both of them.''

The meaning of the Surah are:

* verse 1: The Command to pronounce Tasbih and its Response

سَبِّحِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ الاّعْلَى

o 1. Exalt the name of your Lord, the Most High,

Allah Almighty should be remembered only by the beautiful names which suit and befit Him.

* Verses 2-5: The Creation, the Decree, and the bringing forth of Vegetation

o الَّذِى خَلَقَ فَسَوَّى
2. Who created and proportioned;

o وَالَّذِى قَدَّرَ فَهَدَى
3. And who destined and then guided;

o وَالَّذِى أَخْرَجَ الْمَرْعَى
4. And who brings out the (green and luscious) pasture,

o فَجَعَلَهُ غُثَآء أَحْوَى
5. And then make it black stubble.

"Your Lord, glorification of Whose name is being enjoined, is He Who created everything in the Universe, proportioned it, set it a destiny, taught it to perform the function for which it is created, and you witness this manifestation of His power day and night that He creates vegetation on the earth as well as reduces it to mere rubbish. No other being has the power to bring about spring nor the power to prevent autumn."

* Verses 6-8: The Prophet does not forget the Revelation

o سَنُقْرِئُكَ فَلاَ تَنسَى

6. We will make you recite, O Muhammad, and you will not forget,

o إِلاَّ مَا شَآء اللَّهُ إِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ الْجَهْرَ وَمَا يَخْفَى

7. Except what Allah should will. Indeed, He knows what is declared and what is hidden.

o وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلْيُسْرَى

8. And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) the simple (Path).

This is Allah informing and promising him (the Prophet ) that He will teach him a recitation that he will not forget.(Except what Allah may will.)

* Verses 9-13: The Command to remind

o فَذَكّرْ إِن نَّفَعَتِ الذّكْرَى

9. So remind, if the reminder should benefit;

o سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَن يَخْشَى

10. He who fears Allah will be reminded.

o وَيَتَجَنَّبُهَا الاْشْقَى

11. But it will be avoided by those most unfortunate ones,

o الَّذِى يَصْلَى النَّارَ الْكُبْرَى

12. He who will enter and burn in the greatest Fire,

o ثُمَّ لاَ يَمُوتُ فِيهَا وَلاَ يَحْيَا

13. In which they will then neither die nor live.

Allah then says,(Therefore remind in case the reminder profits.) meaning, remind where reminding is beneficial. From here we get the etiquette of spreading knowledge, that it should not be wasted upon those who are not suitable or worthy of it. The Commander of the believers, `Ali said, "You do not tell people any statement that their intellects do not grasp except that it will be a Fitnah (trial) for some of them.'' He also said, "Tell people that which they know. Would you like for Allah and His Messenger to be rejected''

Would you like for Allah and His Messenger to be rejected'' Allah said:
(The reminder will be received by him who fears,) meaning, `he whose heart fears Allah and who knows that he is going to meet Him, will receive admonition from what you convey to him, O Muhammad.'

Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Sa`id that the Messenger of Allah said,
Concerning the people of the Fire who are deserving of it, they will not die nor will they live. Regarding the people that Allah wants mercy for, He will cause them to die in the Fire. Then He will allow the intercessors to come to them, and a man will take his groups of supporters and plant them (or he said (they will be planted) in the River of Al-Haya (or he said (Al-Hayah, or Al-Hayawan, or Nahr Al-Jannah). Then they will sprout up like the sprouting of the seed on the moist bank of a flowing stream.)

Then the Prophet said,(Haven't you all seen the tree that is green, then it turns yellow, then it turns green (again)) Abu Sa`id then said that some of those present said, "It is as if the Prophet used to live in the desert wilderness (i.e., due to his parables of nature).''

Ahmad also recorded from Abu Sa`id that the Messenger of Allah said,(Concerning the people of the Fire who will be dwellers of it, they will not die in it nor will they live. However, there will be a group of people - or as he said -( whom the Fire will burn due to their sins - or he said - (their wrongdoings. So, He will cause them to die until they become burnt coal. Then the intercession will be allowed and they will be brought group after group, and they will be scattered over the rivers of Paradise. Then it will be said: "O people of Paradise! Pour down upon them.'' Then they will sprout like the growing of the seed that is upon the moist bank of the flowing stream.'' Then, a man from among the people present said, "It is as if the Messenger of Allah used to live in the desert wilderness.'' Muslim also recorded this Hadith.

* Verses 14-15: A Statement concerning the People of Success

o قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن تَزَكَّى
14. But those will succeeded who purify themselves,

o وَذَكَرَ اسْمَ رَبِّهِ فَصَلَّى

15. And glorify the name of Allah, and (lift their hearts) in prayer.

Allah says,(Indeed whosoever purifies himself shall achieve success.) meaning, he purifies himself from despised characteristics and he follows what Allah has revealed to the Messenger .

(And remembers the Name of his Lord, and performs Salah.) meaning, he establishes the prayer in its appointed time, seeking the pleasure of Allah, obedience to His command, and implementation of His Law.

* Verses 16-17: This World is Worthless in Comparison to the Hereafter

o بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَوةَ الدُّنْيَا

16. But you prefer the worldly life,

o وَالاٌّخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى

17. But the Hereafter is better and more enduring.

The reward of the final abode is better than the worldly life, and it is more lasting. For indeed, this worldly life is lowly and temporal, whereas the Hereafter is noble and eternal. Thus, how can an intelligent person prefer that which is short-lived over that which is eternal. How can he give importance to that which will soon pass away from him, while ignoring the importance of the abode of eternity and infinity.

* Verses 18-19: The Scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa

o إِنَّ هَـذَا لَفِى الصُّحُفِ الاٍّولَى

18. Indeed, this is in the former Books (Revelation),-

o صُحُفِ إِبْرَهِيمَ وَمُوسَى

19. The Books of Abraham and Moses.

Verily, this is in the former Scriptures -- the Scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa.) This Ayah is similar to Allah's statement in Surat An-Najm,(Or is he not informed with what is in the Scriptures of Musa. And of Ibrahim who fulfilled (or conveyed) all that (Allah ordered him to do or convey): that no burdened person (with sins) shall bear the burden (sins) of another. And that man can have nothing but what he does. And that his deeds will be seen. Then he will be recompensed with a full and the best recompense. And that to your Lord is the End (Return of everything).) (53:36-42) And so forth, until the end of these Ayat.

Al Aala-Surat 087-Huthaify

Mishary Rashid Al Afasi- Surah Al A'la ( Learning Version)

Chapter 87 : Surah Al-A'la
(Revealed before Hijrah)

Date of Revelation and Context
The Surah was revealed very early in the Holy Prophet's ministry at Mecca. Besides most Commentators of the Qur'an, Muir and Noldeke hold this view; the latter (Noldeke) places its revelation after Chapter 78, while some Muslim scholars assign it the eighth place in the chronological order of revelation of the Qur'an. The preceding Surah had ended on the note that the Qur'an is a complete and perfect code of Divine laws, fully capable of meeting the needs and requirements of all mankind; and that at no time will it be subject to change, abrogation or interpolation. This Quranic claim gives rise to the natural and inevitable question, viz., where was the need of a new Reformer to whom reference has been made in the preceding several Chapters in the presence of such a complete and perfect revelation? The present Surah answers this important question.

It was further stated in Surah AI-Tariq that the development of man is subject to alternate periods of rise and fall. This fact again gives rise to another equally important question, viz., that after the revelation of a Law, complete in all respects, man's progress should naturally become uniform and uninterrupted and immune against all possibility of retrogression. This being so, why was a complete Shari'ah not revealed in the beginning of the world; why was it deferred till the time of the Holy Prophet? The Surah supplies an answer to this question also. It possesses another intimate connection with the preceding Chapter. In that Surah it was stated that man is born of a fluid which issues forth from the loins of his father and gets his sustenance from the breast of his mother. This constituted a subtle hint about the gradual process of man's physical development. We are told that like his physical development man's spiritual development is also gradual. The Holy Prophet generally recited this and the next Surah in the Friday and 'Id Prayers.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم
[1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

سَبِّحِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ الأَعْلَى
[2] Glorify the name of thy Lord,[3320] the Most High,

الَّذِي خَلَقَ فَسَوَّى
[3] Who creates and perfects,[3321]

وَالَّذِي قَدَّرَ فَهَدَى
[4] And Who designs and guides,

وَالَّذِي أَخْرَجَ الْمَرْعَى
[5] And Who brings forth the pasturage,

فَجَعَلَهُ غُثَاءً أَحْوَى
[6] Then turns it black, rotten rubbish.[3322]

سَنُقْرِئُكَ فَلاَ تَنسَى
[7] We shall teach thee the Qur’an, and thou shalt forget it not,[3323]

إِلاَّ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ إِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ الْجَهْرَ وَمَا يَخْفَى
[8] Except as Allah wills[3324]. Surely, He knows what is open and what is hidden.

وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلْيُسْرَى
[9] And We shall facilitate for thee every facility.[3325]

فَذَكِّرْ إِنْ نَفَعَتِ الذِّكْرَى
[10] So go on reminding; surely, reminding is profitable.

سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَنْ يَخْشَى
[11] He who fears will soon heed;

وَيَتَجَنَّبُهَا الأَشْقَى
[12] But the reprobate will turn aside from it,

الَّذِي يَصْلَى النَّارَ الْكُبْرَى
[13] He who is to enter the great Fire.

ثُمَّ لاَ يَمُوتُ فِيهَا وَلاَ يَحْيَا
[14] Then he will neither die therein nor live.

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَنْ تَزَكَّى
[15] Verily, he truly prospers who purifies himself,

وَذَكَرَ اسْمَ رَبِّهِ فَصَلَّى
[16] And remembers the name of his Lord and offers Prayers.

بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا
[17] But you prefer the life of this world,

وَالآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى
[18] Whereas the Hereafter is better and more lasting.

إِنَّ هَذَا لَفِي الصُّحُفِ الأُولَى
[19] This indeed is what is taught in the former Scriptures —

صُحُفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَمُوسَى
[20] The Scriptures of Abraham and Moses.[3326]

3320. The Divine attribute Rabb (Lord Who makes things grow and develop by stages) disposes of the objection: Why was the perfect Law not revealed in the beginning of creation? The word implies that perfect Law should have been revealed when man's intellect and reason had attained their fullest development which could and did take place after a long and gradual process of evolution.

3321. A high destiny awaits man. He can attain the highest spiritual stature and can reflect in his person Divine attributes so as to become the mirror of his Creator.

3322. The verse constitutes a subtle answer to the objection: Why did God first reveal incomplete Laws, suited only to the needs of the peoples and the periods in which they were revealed, and then towards the end revealed the last and most perfect Shari'ah in the form of the Qur'an? The answer is that God has created two kinds of things: (a) Those that like herbage and pasture satisfy man's temporary needs and thus have a limited tenure of life. The former Scriptures, like these things, fulfilled only man's temporary needs and, therefore, were subject to decay and death. (b) Those things such as the sun, the moon, the earth, etc., which are of permanent use for man. They will last till the universe lasts. The Qur'an is like the universe and is meant to be man's unerring guide till the end of time; hence it is immune to change, replacement and the wasting effect of time.

3323. The Holy Prophet was human and as such was apt to forget and he did forget things as far as the affairs of life were concerned. But God in His infallible wisdom had so arranged that though the Holy Prophet was not literate and that sometimes long Chapters were revealed to him in one piece, the revelation remained so indelibly imprinted on his mind that he was never found to forget or falter in reciting the revealed portions. It is marvellous, indeed, that very long Chapters such as AI-Baqarah, Al 'Imran and AI-Nisa', were revealed piecemeal, and a period of several years had intervened between the revelation of one piece and another and yet the Holy Prophet never; for a moment, fumbled or faltered in putting the revealed verses in their proper places. This is a fact which has not been disputed by even the most hostile critics of the Qur'an.

3324. The expression, 'as what Allah wills,' pertains only to matters of everyday life.

3325. The verse signifies: (a) That it is easy to commit the Qur'an to memory; (b) that its teachings possess an adaptability all their own which makes them conform to, and meet, the exigencies of changing conditions and circumstances and also the needs and requirements of men of different temperaments and dispositions; and (c) that Quranic injunctions are not arbitrary but wise and rational. These factors combined make the Qur'an a book easy to learn and to act upon. These, among others, are some of the means which God has provided for the eternal protection and preservation of the Quranic text and its meaning.

3326. Because the essential principles of all religions are basically identical, the teachings mentioned in the foregoing verses are also found in the Scriptures of Moses and Abraham. The verse may also signify that the prophecy about the appearance of a great Prophet who was to give to the world the last Divine Message and the most perfect Teaching is found in the Scriptures of Moses and Abraham (Deut. 18:18, 19 & 33:2).
