Lessons from Sūrah 21 - Sūrat Al-Anbiyā’


  1. The Day of Reckoning is drawing closer while we are still wandering in neglect.

  2. Ask the people who know if you yourself don’t know.

  3. Allāh cannot be questioned about what He does, whereas we will be questioned over our actions.

  4. Every soul shall taste death.

  5. The human is intrinsically hasty and impatient.[1]

  6. Allāh created every living thing from water.

  7. There will be thorough weighing of deeds on the Day of Judgement.[2]

  8. Ayyūb عليه السلام was afflicted with a serious illness, but instead of asking Allāh to remove it, he merely mentioned it and said, ‘You are the most merciful from those who show mercy.’ He couldn’t bring himself to ask Allāh to remove it: such was his disposition.

  9. Allāh sent Muḥammad ﷺ as a mercy for the worlds.

[1] خُلِقَ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ مِنۡ عَجَلٍ ‌ۚ سَأُوْرِيكُمۡ ءَايَـٰتِى فَلَا تَسۡتَعۡجِلُونِ (٢١: ٣٧)

[2] وَنَضَعُ ٱلۡمَوَازِينَ ٱلۡقِسۡطَ لِيَوۡمِ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ فَلَا تُظۡلَمُ نَفۡسٌ شَيۡــًٔا‌ ۖ وَإِن كَانَ مِثۡقَالَ حَبَّةٍ مِّنۡ خَرۡدَلٍ أَتَيۡنَا بِهَا ‌ۗ وَكَفَىٰ بِنَا حَـٰسِبِينَ (٢١: ٤٧)
