… And the List is Unending!
A short essay that highlights the importance of being
thankful to God in all circumstances.
Tafsīr of the Bismillāh Verse
Farāhi’s exposition of the oft-repeated
verse of the Holy Qur’ān has many dimensions to it. Not only does it trace
diachronic history, it also seeks to establish multi-faceted relationship of
this formula with the foundation of Islam – God-consciousness that runs through
each directive of Islam. Discussion on the etymology of the name of God – Allah
– elevates the essay to linguistic heights.
The Day of Reckoning is sure to come. There
is no doubt about it. Yet many did not and still do not believe it. The sūrah
demonstrates that they are without excuse. They deny the truth in the face of
evidence perfectly articulated in the microcosm (nafs) as elsewhere – they know
it, experience it and then repudiate it. How should the miscreants of this sort
be treated? Censured, rebuked and admonished? The commentary of Islāhī unfolds
these and many other aspects of the Qur’ānic discourse. He, drawing upon
Farāhī’s thesis, also discerns a divine plan in the verses revealed in response
to the Holy Prophet’s urge to hastily receive the whole of the Holy Qur’ān.
