Note 1


This is the 44th Surah of the Qur’an and it has 59 verses. The Surah derives its name from the air pollution that will become wide spread in the world as nations industrialize. 41:11 also mentions Smoke, the nebulae of gas out of which the Universe was shaped billions of years ago. The brief verses in this Surah take us along with Tasreefand powerful concepts. Verse 44:3 has been subjected to much conjecture through conflicting Ahadith. Many people believe that in this night, called as ‘Lailat-il-Nisf Sha’baan’ (Night of the middle of the month of Sha’baan) or ‘Shab-e-Bar’at’, the destinies of individuals are written down. Also, that the Prophet (S) used to visit the graveyard praying for the forgiveness of the dead. These notions are certainly non-Qur’anic. There is no such thing as pre-destiny of people. “Every person deserves what he has earned.” And “No person will bear the load of another.” (Surah Najm)



With the Glorious Name of God, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness

Muhammad Asad (The Message Of Quran)
44:3 Behold, from on high have We bestowed it on a blessed night:3 for, verily, We have always been warning [man].4

Note 3
I.e., the night on which the revelation of the Qur'an began: see surah 97.

Note 4
The revelation of the Qur'an is but a continuation and, indeed, the climax of all divine revelation which has been going on since the very dawn of human consciousness. Its innermost purpose has always been the warning extended by God to man not to abandon himself to mere material ambitions and pursuits and, thus, to lose sight of spiritual values.
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
44:3 We have sent it down in a blessed night, for we are to warn.,
Shabbir Ahmed (Quran As It Explains Itself)

44:4 In it, is a decree for every matter of wisdom.
Muhammad Asad (The Message Of Quran)
44:4 On that [night] was made clear, in wisdom, the distinction between all things [good and evil]5

Note 5
Lit., "was made distinct everything wise", i.e., "wisely" or "in wisdom": a metonymical attribution of the adjective "wise" - which in reality relates to God, the maker of that distinction - to what has thus been made distinct (Zamakhshari and Razi). The meaning is that the revelation of the Qur'an, symbolized by that "blessed night" of its beginning, provides man with a standard whereby to discern between good and evil, or between all that leads to spiritual growth through an ever-deepening realization (ma'rifah) of God's existence, on the one hand, and all that results in spiritual blindness and self-destruction, on the other.

Note 6
Lit., "if you had but inner certainty". According to Abu Muslim al-Isfahani (as quoted by Razi), this means, "you would know it if you would but truly desire inner certainty and would pray for it".
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
44:7 Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them. If only you could be certain!,
Shabbir Ahmed (Quran As It Explains Itself)

Muhammad Asad (The Message Of Quran)
44:9 Nay, but they [who lack inner certainty] are but Dying with their doubts.7

Note 7
Lit., "are toying in doubt": i.e., their half-hearted admission of the possibility that God exists is compounded of doubt and irony (Zamakhshari ) - doubt as to the proposition of God's existence, and an ironical amusement at the idea of divine revelation.
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
44:9 Indeed, they are doubtful, heedless.,

Most of the classical commentators (e.g., Tabari, Zamakhshari , Razi, Baydawi) point out that this phrase can be understood in either of two senses, namely: "Give in unto me, O God's bondmen (ibad), implying a call to the Egyptians (since all human beings are "God's bondmen") to accept the divine message which Moses was about to convey to them; or, alternatively, "Give up to me God's servants", i.e., the children of Israel, who were kept in bondage in Egypt. Inasmuch as the vocalization ibada is applicable to the vocative as well as the accusative case, either of these two interpretations is legitimate.

Note 15
I.e., according to all commentators, above all people of their time, because at that time the children of Israel were the only people who worshipped the One God: which is the reason of the frequent Quranic references to the story of their delivery from bondage. The stress on God's having "chosen them knowingly" alludes to His foreknowledge that in later times they would deteriorate morally and thus forfeit His grace (Zamakhshari and Razi).

Muhammad Asad (The Message Of Quran)
44:33 and gave them such signs [of Our grace] as would clearly presage a test.16

Note 16
Lit., "as would have in them a manifest test": an allusion to the long line of prophets rose in their midst, as well as to the freedom and prosperity which they were to enjoy in the Promised Land. All this presaged a test of their sincerity with regard to the spiritual principles which in the beginning raised them "above all other people" and, thus, of their willingness to act as God's message-bearers to the entire world. The formulation of the above sentence implies elliptically that they did not pass that test inasmuch as they soon forgot the spiritual mission for which they had been elected, and began to regard themselves as God's "chosen people" simply on account of their descent from Abraham: a notion which the Qur'an condemns in many places. Apart from this, the majority of the children of Israel very soon lost their erstwhile conviction that the life in this world is but the first and not the final stage of human life, and - as their Biblical history shows - abandoned themselves entirely to the pursuit of material prosperity and power. (See next note.)
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
44:33 We showed them so many proofs, which constituted a great test.,
Shabbir Ahmed (Quran As It Explains Itself)

Signs: revelation through Moses, freedom and prosperity, the fertile and blessed land of Can’aan Palestine, a chosen status, the great kingdoms of David and Solomon, the Prophets of the Tribes, the advent of Jesus. Trial = To believe and live a life upright. When they failed the tests, they were left to wander in bewilderment and lost their chosen status

Note 17
Although, on the face of it, by "these people" the Israelites are meant, the reference is obviously a general one, applying to all who hold the views expressed in the sequence, and in particular to the pagan contemporaries of the Prophet Muhammad. Nevertheless, there is a subtle connection between this passage and the preceding allusion to the "test" with which the children of Israel were to be faced: for it is a historical fact that up to the time of the destruction of the Second Temple and their dispersion by the Roman emperor Titus, the priestly aristocracy among the Jews, known as the Sadducees, openly denied the concepts of resurrection, divine judgment and life in the hereafter, and advocated a thoroughly materialistic outlook on life.

44:36 So then, bring forth our forefathers [as witnesses], if what you claim is true!"19

Note 19
I.e., "bring our forefathers back to life and let them bear witness that there is a hereafter". This ironic demand accords with the saying of the unbelievers mentioned in 43:22 and 23, "We found our forefathers agreed on what to believe - and, verily, it is in their footsteps that we find our guidance!" Thus, in the last resort, the fact that their ancestors did not believe in a hereafter is to them as conclusive an argument against it as the fact that nobody has as yet come back to life to confirm the truth of resurrection.

44:36 "Bring back our forefathers, if you are truthful.",

Note 20
"Tubba" was the title borne by a succession of powerful Himyar kings who ruled for centuries over the whole of South Arabia , and were finally overcome by the Abyssinians in the fourth century of the Christian era. They are mentioned elsewhere in the Qur'an (50:14) as having denied the truth of resurrection and God's judgment.
