Chapter 64: Sūrat al-Taghābun

Sūrat al-Taghābun, Chapter 64 Verse(s): 1-18 presented on 9/7/08

Shaykh Amin draws the attention of the class to the theological definition of Allah’s Abilities conveyed in the opening verses of this chapter. “Allah ﷻ has placed human beings where ‘tawḥīd’ (monotheism) is not only existing, but is inevitable… where discerning the oneness of God ﷻ is facilitated…”. In the second part of the session, the Shaykh discusses the verse that talks of ‘calamities’ that befall human beings with the leave of Allah ﷻ, and extends that discussion into the present-day experiences of the Muslim family unit.
