Chapter 112 of the Qur'an...

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

 Reciting chapter 112 of the Holy Qur'an, Surat Ikhlas, is compared to complete recitation of one-third of the entire Qur'an. Reciting it is a means of blessings for the reciter. Note that Allah Ta'ala sent the Qur'an in 3 parts, namely:--

(1) A third of it is comprised of Legal Rulings.

(2) A third is comprised of exhortations of promises and warnings.

(3) A third is comprised of discussing Allah's Names and Attributes..and Surat Ihklas brings together within it those Names and Attributes.

The Surah mentions 2 Names of Allah which together indicate all the Attributes of Perfection. They are not mentioned in any other verse/ayat: "al-Ahad" and "al-Samad".  These 2 Names indicate the Oneness of the Sacred Being who possesses all the attributes of perfection.

Allah is Ahad-- His Singularity of existence cannot be shared by another entity.

Allah is Samad- His Dignity and Sovereignty reaches the extent where all other things in existence depend on for their needs.... ALLAHU, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala...
