3. Short Passages of The Qur’an

(a)

 

Bismi-l-lahi-r-Rahmani-r-Raheem

Qul huwa-l-lahu Ahad

Al-lahu-s-Samad

Lam yalid wa lam yulad

Wa lam yakun lahu kufwan ahad

 

This may be interpreted as follows:

 

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Say: He is God, the One and Only

God, the eternally besought of all.

He gives no birth, nor is He born

And there is none like unto Him (Qur’an, 112).

 

(b)

 

Bismi-l-lahi-r-Rahmani-r-Raheem

Wa-l-asr

Inna-l-insana lafee khusr

Illa-l-ladheena amanu wa ‘amilu as-salihat

Wa tawasaw bi-l-haq sabr wa tawasaw bi-s-sabr

 

This may be interpreted as follows:

 
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

By (the token of) time (through ages)

Verily man is in loss

Except those who have Faith, and do righteous deeds

And join together in the mutual teaching of truth and of constant patience (Qur’an, 103)

            

One of such short passages is recited after the Fatihah in each of the first two units. In the third and fourth units no recitation other than the Fatihah is required.

            

There are many short and easy passages in the Qur’an. Every Muslim must make some efforts to learn by heart as many passages as he can. Also he must read and study the instructions of the Qur’an. Reading the Qur’an is in itself a high form of worship and fruitful session of devotion.
