Sūrah Falaq

Presented here is the commentary of the Sūrah Falaq, the second last sūrah of the Holy Qur’ān, as penned by Amīn Ahsan Islāhī.

Determining the Addressees and the Addressors

One of the critical factors to assimilate the Qur’ānic text is to appreciate the address – who is being addressed by whom. Since most of the difficulties encountered in text deciphering emanate from identification of the addressor and the addressee, this is an area where students of the Qur’ān really need to excel. Hamīd Uddīn Farāhi, the celebrated exegete of the Holy Qur’ān, has delineated some indicators in this short exposition which, if absorbed properly, would provide immense help in tracing the direction of address in the Holy Qur’ān.

In the above captioned article, Jāved Ahmad Ghāmidī has elaborated these landmarks.
