Juz’u `Amma – A Basic Study


Juz’u ‘Amma is the most commonly recited and memorized portion of the Qur’ān. Its early revelations came in powerful language consisting of short, concise but eloquent sentences; their literary style was so unique that it attracted a great deal of attention. Logical evidences supported the universal truths expressed within them. Their verses exposed the errors of the idolaters and criticized their blind adherence to a religion of unsanctioned customs.

They refute the misconception that man is self-sufficient, independent of Allah and unaccountable to Him. And they convey basic principles of morality, ethics and righteous conduct taught by all prophets as an indispensable part of Allah’s religion.
