042 – Al Shura – The Counsel Meeting

The chapter begins with the assertion that the Qur’an is a revelation from the owner of the heavens and the earth as a warning and a path to reach one’s full potential. The recompense of the Prophet is love for his near ones.  It continues with a comparison of falsehood vs truth and states that the door of repentance is always open. 
The chapter then emphasises Allah’s role as the Provider and Protector who owns the treasures of the heavens and the earth. The characteristics of those who believe and trust in Allah are listed on an individual and communal level. 
After stating that the Prophet is not a protector over anyone, the chapter ends with the awesomeness of Allah in his speaking to the human being through revelation.
