045 – Al Jathiya – The Kneeling

The sura begins by drawing attention to the signs of Allah in the heavens and the earth. It announces that life and death follow Divine Laws and that the hereafter is an absolute reality which most people do not comprehend. Its title comes from verse 28 which says every nation shall be kneeling (humbled) when they will be invited to be accountable for their deeds on the Day of Judgement. This is the sixth of the group of suwer known as Hawameem (Suwer 40-46) which all start with ʻHaMeemʼ.
