Summary of Juz-22

Sûrah Fâtir follows Sûrah Saba as the 35th Sûrah of the Qur’ân.
In this Sûrah, Allâh states that He has created the heavens and the earth without any previous example. Thereafter, Allâh states that He “made the angels, possessing two, three and four wings.

Allâh increases in His creation as He pleases. Verily Allâh has power over all things. There is none to withhold the mercy Allâh opens to people, and there is none to release the mercy that He withholds. He is The Mighty, The Wise.” (verses 1 and 2)

Thereafter, Allâh warns man to beware of Shaytân’s ploys because he beautifies the sins of people so that sin appears to be virtuous to them. Shaytân must be treated as the avowed enemy he is to man.

Speaking about those who spend their wealth for Allâh’s pleasure, Allâh says that He will “grant them their reward in full and increase them from His grace. Verily He is Most Forgiving, Most Appreciative.” (verse 30)

Every being is dependent on Allâh, Who has power to do whatever He pleases. Allâh declares in verse 45, “If Allâh was to take man to task for whatever he does, Allâh would not leave a single living creature on the face of the earth (because His punishment would destroy them all). But Allâh defers them until an appointed term.”

Sûrah Yâ-Sîn follows Sûrah Fâtir. Allâh says that He has revealed the Qur’ân to Rasulullâh Sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam so that he may guide people. However, there are those Kuffâr who have veils upon their hearts and will not respond.
Regarding them Allâh says, “It is the same to them whether you warn them or you do not warn them. They will never believe. You can only warn him who follows the advice and fears Rahmân without seeing Him. Give him the glad tidings of forgiveness and a bountiful provision.” (verses 10 and 11)

The concluding verse of this Juz advises, “Follow those who do not ask any remuneration from you, and who are rightly guided.” (verse 21)
