In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Mercifu1
(The Overwhelming Event)
No. 88 (26 Verses)
Contents of Sura Ghashiyah:
This Sura is one of the Meccan Suras which contains mainly the following three themes:
The first subject is the 'Resurrection' and the contrast between the destinies of the Good and the Evil in the 'Hereafter'.
The second subject is 'Monotheism' with reference to the creation of the sky, the earth, and the mountains. Man should consider these wonderful matters as admonishments.
The third subject is 'Prophecy' and some of the duties that the holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) was required to perform. On the whole, the Sura strengthens the idea for the basis of religion and faith, as well as all Meccan Suras do.
The Virtue in Studying This Sura:
As for the virtue of studying this Sura, there is a tradition from the holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) that says: "He who recites this Sura will be reckoned with an easy Reckoning by Allah."
And another narration from Imam Sadiq (p.b.u.h.) says: "He who continues reciting this Sura in his obligatory or voluntary prayers, Allah will put him in His Grace both in this world and the Next, and will keep him safe from fire in the Hereafter."
Certainly it will be so, if the person would only think about the Sura and act accordingly.
