Juz 7 – Wa Iza Sami’u Summary

• Allah talks about those Christians who cannot control their tears when they listen to the Qur’anic recitation. This was especially in context to Najashi Ash’amah, the Christian King of Habsha who had accepted Islam.
• From Verses 87 of Surah Maidah the topics like Halal & Haram and extremism are discussed.
• Islam is a religion of balance. It neither calls for abstention of permissible items (for drinking, eating, wearing etc.) as piety, nor does it abolish the distinction between Halal & Haram.
• Verse 89 talks about oaths (qasm/aqd). The penalty of breaking the oath is to either feed 10 poor and needy, twice, with an average food of his/her usual intake (cost wise), or to clothe them, or to free a slave. If someone cannot do it, he/she should fast on three days. Allah also advices to be true on oaths to be safe from getting penalized.
• If a person takes an oath of something which is against Shari’ah (like cutting off relations etc.), he/she is bound to break it and pay the aforementioned penalty.
• Verses 90 to 92 talk about gamble and alcohol. Allah says that Shaytan wants to use these to sow hatred among Muslims. After talking about the bad consequences of using/being involved in it, Allah strictly asks humans: “Will you abstain?” (…or not from these evil deeds?).
• The next topic deals with prohibition of hunting in the state of Ihram. However, one can hunt for fish in this condition.
• The importance of Kaba is mentioned.
• Allah talks of two of his qualities:
1. Firstly, he is the giver of extreme punishment.
2. Secondly, he is the most forgiving too.
One can thus make him/herself worthy of deserving any one of His qualities, as per good or bad deeds.
• Verse 99 talks about Prophet Muhammed’s ﷺ responsibility, that is to deliver Allah’s message to the people, not to convince them.
• Verse 101 stopped people from asking unnecessary questions to Prophet Muhammed ﷺ.
• Quran then reminds us of the terrifying Day of Judgement, when everybody’s deeds will be accounted. Allah will assemble all the prophets and messengers and ask them: What response did you get from your respective people when you called them toward Islam? They all will submit and say: We have no (limited) knowledge about it, certainly our knowledge is equal to nothing in front of yours.
• Verse 116 & 117: Then Allah will talk to Jesus (Sayyiduna Isa alaihissalam), Reminds him of His Favors on him and his mother Sayyidah Mariam (alaiha assalam) and will Question him: “O Isa, the son of Maryam. Did you ask your people to take you and your mother as two gods besides Allah?” He (alaihissalam) will submit: “Glory be to You! I cannot say anything which I have no right to say. If I had said, You would certainly know. You Know what’s in my heart, but I don’t know that which is in Your Knowledge. 

I told them nothing other than what You asked me to say: “Worship Allah, Who is my Lord and yours.” I was vigilant as to their beliefs, but when you lifted me up then You Yourself kept a watch over their affairs, and You are a Witness over everything.”
• Then Allah says that Today is the Day when only the truthful will benefit. And Allah talks of the stations of the truthful people in the Heavens, where they’ll live forever.
• *Surah An’aam:* Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas (ra) states that this chapter was revealed in a single night in Makkah Mukarramah. _(Source: Mujam Kabeer by Tabrani)_
• The chapter begins with the mention of Allah’s Control over everything, He being the creator of the heavens and the earth, the darkness and light, created human beings from dust, lifespans and a fixed time for the Judgement Day.
• The polytheists of Makkah were demanding Prophet Muhammed ﷺ to show a miracle according to their wish. 
• Allah told Prophet Muhammed ﷺ that they will not accept Islam despite seeing a miracle, will rather call it sorcery. Then they will surely be eligible for torment.
• Allah talks further of the disbelievers: If an angels will descend toward them (to show Haq/truth), they will not be able to see them. If a physical book is reveled on them, they will not believe in it even after touching it, if someone comes to them in a human form, they’ll say he’s just a human like us.
• Allah mentions that they will straightaway deny their polytheistic activities when He the Exalted will Ask them about it on the Day of Judgement. 
• Allah says their hearts (eyes and ears) are veiled from the truth due to their bad deeds, and thus they do not heed to the Quran. They think the worldly life is the only one. They will then be placed on the verge of Hell and be asked: “Is this the truth or not?” (Meaning does Hell truly exist or not?”). Then they will have to bear its torment for their disbelief.
• The regret of the disbelievers on the doomsday is then mentioned.
• Allah motivates Prophet Muhammed ﷺ and says: “Do not be sad. They (the polytheists) are not denying you, rather they are denying Allah’s verses. If you stop reciting these verses (of Quran), they will once again start calling you _Sadiq and Ameen_ (truthful and trustworthy). 
• Verse 46 talks about Allah’s blessings to the humans in the form of the 5 senses. 
• Allah then asked His prophet ﷺ not to turn his focus away from the poor people while in conversation with the arrogant and ungrateful leaders of Makkah.
• Verse 64 talks about different torments and their types.
• Verses 75 to 79 talk about Sayyiduna Ibraheem’s (alaihissalam) incidents while he was contemplating about the True God, and saw a star, the sun and the moon. But when all of them set at their respective times, Sayyiduna Ibraheem (alaihissalam) said they cannot be Gods, for there is no downfall to God. 
• Sayyiduna Ibraheem (a.s.) reasoned with his people as to how can they call those aspects as gods which cannot save themselves from downfall?
• Then Sayyiduna Ibraheem (a.s.) said those words which we all now say before starting salah/prayers: 
إِنِّى وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِىَ لِلَّذِى فَطَرَ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ حَنِيفًۭا ۖ وَمَآ أَنَا۠ مِنَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ 
Translation: “I have indeed turned my face toward the One Who has created the heavens and the earth beyond compare, and I am not amongst the polytheists.” (Surah An’am, verse 79).
• Verse 94 talks of the hereafter again. On the doomsday, after assembling every human being, Allah reminds them that He assembled humans for the first time before sending them to the world, everyone’s soul was assembled, and He had Asked: “Am I not your Lord?” Everyone had said: “Yes, you are”. 
• Then the polytheists will be said: “None of your self-made gods will help you Today.”
• Allah then asks people to contemplate on the following to recognize Allah:
1. How a plant or a tree comes up from a single grain and/or a seed.
2. Turns a life into death, and a death back to life (example of an egg which comes lifeless from a hen, and comes to life after incubation).
3. The changes in the night and the day.
• Allah says that the sun and the moon are meant for the count of days, the stars for navigation etc.
• The end of this Juz recalls the mention of the Oneness of Allah, and the rejection of ascribing partners to Allah.
