Today Naeem Muhammad shares a personal reflection from a surah that is very beloved to him: Surah Ya-Sin. Subscribe to the series to receive the video of this reflection along with the other daily reflections each morning. Join Islamic Relief USA in exploring the Qur’an this month.
Today’s Ramadan Reflection is from Juz 22 and I’ll be talking about Surah Ya-Sin. Surah Ya-Sin means so much to me and it has so many remedies for the heart. And it’s actually a really great way to start your day after Fajr with reading Surah Ya-Sin. One of the verses in this surah that sticks out to me is ayah 20. Allah (SWT) says:
And there came from the uttermost part of the city a man running. He cried: O my people! Follow those who have been sent!
The verses that come before this one talk about a messenger who was talking to people who weren’t responding the way he was hoping. And then it talks about this man who came from the furthest end of the city. And it reminded me of the fact that sometimes Allah will send you sustenance from places you would have never imagined. And there’s so many times that I think about the prophet receiving this type of assistance, and comparing that to how we feel when we need assistance. Sometimes we’re in very dark places or in so much need, and we can call out to Allah and He will send aid to us. So this is that reminder on this day, especially here at Islamic Relief, there’s so many people calling for assistance, asking for help. Know that Allah will send that help to you.
