Surat Al-Ikhlas – A Hadith and Reminder

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Abu Said narrated that he heard the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, say to his Companions, “Is any one of you incapable of reciting one-third of the Qur’an in one night?” They considered it burdensome and said: “O Messenger of Allah, which one of us can afford to do that?” He said,Surat Al-Ikhlas (He is God, the One) is equivalent to one-third of the Qur’an.”   – (Bukhari)

Surat Al-Ikhlas is the 112th Sura of the Qur’an. It is a short declaration of tawhid, God’s absolute unity, consisting of 4 ayat. Al-Ikhlas means “the purity” or “the refining,” meaning to remain pure and faithful, or a state of purging one’s soul of non-Islamic beliefs, such as paganism and polytheism.

Such a purification is the burning away of all of the worldly misunderstandings, concerns and desires that separate us from the One; the One and Only upon whom we depend, the One and Only who is our foundation rock, the Eternal One and Only.

Surat Al-Ikhlas

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ١
اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ ٢
لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ ٣
وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ ٤

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Raheem

1 Qul huwa Allahu ahad
2 Allah hu samad
3 Lam yalid wa lam yulad
4 Wa lam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Say: He is Allah, the One and Only!
Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;
He begetteth not, nor is He begotten.
And there is none like unto Him.


Ya Haqq!

    The Holy Qur’an has the outer literal exoteric meaning and the inner batin hidden esoteric meaning to it. It mentions Prophet Isa (as) as the Rasul, Messiah, Word and Ruh / Spirit of Allah the Most High.

    Prophet Adam (as) is also the world of Allah the Most High. From him Eve was created and thus all of mankind are their children, except for Prophet Isa (as).

    Prophet Isa (as) for this reason used to always refer to Allah the Most High as his father in the heavien. He had no wordly father. This makes him the spiritual child of Allah the Most High but is not the begotten son.

    If Allah was true mankind would not be in this state today.
    A father takes care of his children.Allah cant provide anyone with a single piece of bread with billions in poverty and makes false promises to give Jannat.Who will believe in Allah when one is starving and living in misery.
    This sura and and all other suras is not going to put food in our stomach.

    Mr. Wahab

    Allah asked human to enchance they talent in they respective field and earn money so that they can buy food to fill stomach

    Nevertheless Quran is for wisdom for the one who actually wants to understand and bring changes in they life

    If any one recite this surah 110 times

    Surely he/she will live for allah not for worldy needs …
    It colapes ur mind n drag u to allah to worship
    Hence u will be far from sin ;)

    When you feel the hell fire and other punishments to come, you won’t be thinking of food. God bless you and guide you.
