Ramadan 28

Today’s Text: Sura 58-66 (, pages 298-309)

Sura 58, “al-Mujadila” (The Woman who Pleads)

This Sura concerns divorce by Zihar and remarriage. Mohammed strikes against the pre-Islamic Arabian culture with these revelations.

Sura 59, “al-Hashr” (The Gathering)

This Sura speaks of Judgment Day once again where the Companions of the Fire will be separated from the Companions of the Gardens.

Sura 60, “al-Mumtahina” (The Woman to be Examined)

Only certain women were allowed to be married by Muslim men. Primarily Muslim men are to follow the example of Abraham in his life and for his wives. Primarily, the women have to be Believers or women who belong to tribes or nations who do not fight against the Islamic faith.

Sura 61, “as-Saff” (The Battle Array)

Jesus prophesied that His ministry was to confirm what had been given to previous generations, especially the Law of Moses, and to prepare everyone for the Messenger to come, Ahmad (61.6). Here is Islam’s proclamation that Jesus was a Muslim and prophesied about Mohamed. Their basis for the Gospel being an early version of the Qur’an.

Sura 62, “al-Jumu’a” (The Assembly – The Friday Prayer)

Friday is the day for Muslims to go to the Mosque for corporate prayers (62.9). This is different from Christians or Jews. Christians worship on Sunday because Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday (Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-10). Jews worship on Saturday because God rested from His creative work on the seventh day of the week (Genesis 2:1-3). Muslims worship on Friday because Allah created Adam on the sixth day of the week (Genesis 1:26-31).

Sura 63, “al-Munafiqun” (The Hypocrites)

Hypocrites are those wonderful people who say one thing and do the opposite. For Muslims, this includes every generation prior to Allah’s revelation of the Qur’an to Mohamed. The hypocrites are sealed with hardened hearts so that they cannot be saved (63.3).

Sura 64, “at-Taghabun” (Mutual Loss and Gain)

Allah created everything for the sole purpose of praising him (64.1).

Sura 65, “al-Talaq” (The Divorce)

One of the odd things about Muslim divorce is that the divorce should happen at the beginning of the woman’s monthly cycle. Muslim men and women are encouraged to accurately keep track of when the wife’s cycle occurs (65.1). How many men want to keep track of their wife’s monthly cycles?

Sura 66, “al-Tahrim” (Holding as Forbideen)

Mohamed is chastised for holding as forbidden something Allah has given him as a lawful gift. This came about as Mohamed had confided something in Marya, his Coptic Christian wife, and she went and gossiped it to another of his wives. Allah informed Mohamed of this betrayal and Mohamed divorced her immediately (66.1-4). In fact, Allah insinuates that Mohamed might get better wives if he were to divorce all of his current wives (66.5).
