024 – Al Nur – The Light

The sura begins with explanations and decrees relating to sexuality, family law, and on the giving of testimony. It then reflects on privacy and modesty explaining the concept of hijab in verses 30 and 31. The highlight of the sura is Aya Al Nur which in a parable addresses the eternal origin of Divine light. The sura continues with a promise of the establishment of Islam which Allah has chosen for humankind.
