Tafseer of Surah Al Ikhals

 [1 Say: He is Allah, the One!

This verse asserts the Oneness of Allah. It summarizes the quintessence of Islam and refutes all types of polytheism and worshipful admiration. “Ahad” signifying “The One” is utilized in the Quran just for Allah, and nobody else. As Allah Almighty says in Surah al-Isra: [3]

“And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him.”

 2] Allah is He on Whom all depend,

In this stanza, Allah refers to Himself by one of His Perfect credits: As-Samad.

 As-Samad too is one of the Names of Allah.

Allah has been alluded to as The Eternal Refuge, The Self-Sufficient, The Absolute, and the One on Whom all depend and to Whom all creation goes to for the satisfaction of their longings and necessities, by various interpreters of the Quran.

Consequently, the entire world is reliant upon Allah for the satisfaction of its requirements, but He needs nobody. As referenced in Surah an-Naml:

“Truly my Lord is Free of all Needs, Supreme in Honor!”

3] He begets not, nor is He begotten,

This verse asserts that Allah was not conceived, nor did He conceive an offspring. To be specific, He has no start and accordingly no completion. Allah is the Creator of each and everything, except He, was not made by any force.

One may ponder: isn’t it pretty clear that Allah, the Ultimate Authority, is above all the other things?  It definitely is self-evident. But numerous polytheists and misguided worshipers unfairly attribute accomplices just as children and girls to Allah (Nauzubillah!). However, this specific stanza of Surah al-Ikhlas rules out any ambiguity in such a manner.

4] Nor has He any equal,

The last verse of this Surah states that Allah is past any comparison. There isn’t anything and anyone equivalent to Him in nature and qualities. There is none in the whole universe, nor at any point was, nor at any point be, who is equivalent to Allah. He is Unique in each perspective. In Surah al-Shurah, Allah says:

“There is nothing like Him.”

Consequently, this Surah gives a summed-up depiction of the Oneness of Allah and the Perfection of His Attributes.

Surah Ikhlas Wazeefa

Surah Ikhlas Wazeefa is very mighty and has lots of blessings for the reciter.

The Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) said:

Whoever recites Surah Ikhlas ten times, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.”

_ (Sahih al-Jami’ al-Saghir, 6472).

The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) once told a poor person to always say “Salaam” when entering his house, even if there was nobody in the house, and then Recite Surah Ikhlas, after a few days the man became abundantly prosperous.

If a person recites Surah Ikhlas 100 times, all his sins for the past 25 years are forgiven by Allah.

It is a defensive shield against all kinds of present and upcoming afflictions and problems.

If someone recites this Surah Ikhlas 3 times before going to bed, Allah will bestow him with the benefits of reading the whole Quran.

If this Surah is recited and blown on the eyes of a person suffering eye-sore, he would be cured by the mercy of Allah Almighty.
