045 – Al Jaathiya – The Kneeling

The chapter begins about the creative author of the Qur’an with an order to reflect on creation.  An insight into the deniers of Divine Guidance as those who keep lying, and mock and turn away in arrogance when the Qur’an is recited. Further reflection on ships in the sea followed by instructions to those who believe towards those who deny Divinity and accountability.
There is an order to follow the shari’aah which includes not only Islamic law but also the spiritual and moral code.
The chapter ends with the inevitability of the day of resurrection when every community will be brought on its knees (humbled) and there will be a just recompense for good and evil. The final verses emphasise that praise, gratitude and greatness in the heavens and earth belongs only to Allah.
