041 – Al Fussilat – The Explanation

The chapter begins with a discussion on the Arabic Qur’an explained in byte size verses followed by advice to the Prophet regarding those who reject it and cover up the truth. After reflection on creation, it states the calamities that befell the tribes of Aad and Thamud as examples of the fate of those who defiantly reject Divine guidance, stopping others from listening to the Qur’an.
The chapter returns to a discussion on the Quran being guidance and healing for those who believe. Those who cover up the truth cannot access it even if they hear it. 
The final section reflects on human behaviours when in need and when in despair and the manner in which Allah reveals the truth to human beings .
