Surah Al Quraysh 106

Surah Al Quraysh 106

Lesson Introduction
Prophet Muhammad (S) belonged to the Quraysh, a group of people honoured amongst the Arabs for being the caretakers of the Ka’ba. Allah gave the Quraysh safety and protection when they travelled with their caravans for trade to Yemen in the winter and to Syria in the summer. The Quraysh became very wealthy and thought they didn’t need Allah. In this surah, Allah reminds the Quraysh to worship Him, the true owner of the Ka’ba and the one who fed them when they were hungry and made them safe from fear.
