Canary Wharf Muslim Association [WharfMA] presents:

AN EXPLANATION OF SURAH AL-AN'AM (THE CATTLE)

with Ustadh Hafiz Abdullah Muhammad*

Date: Tuesday 25th January 2011
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Venue: Idea Store Canary Wharf, Churchill Place,
Canary Wharf, London E14 5RB

Surah al-An'am (6) is the first 'Makkan' chapter after Surah Al-Fatihah
(1) after a series of long Madinan Surahs.  Also, unlike all the previous
long Surahs which were revealed piece-meal, this Surah was was revealed
all at once.  Its revelation was accompanied by 70,000 angels which
demonstrates the Surah's importance.

Whereas the previous Chapters dealt with the Ahl al-Kitab (Jews & Christians),
this Surah makes reference to the Mushrikeen (Idolaters).  The Surah begins
with "All praise be to Allah who created the heavens and the earth" (v.1)
and the central themes of the Surah are Tawheed (monotheism), demonstration
of Allah's Omnipotence and the rejection of polytheism by way of
superstitious beliefs and practices, something not uncommon in our
times in different forms.

In this 7th session of the monthly Journey Through the Qur’an series,
we will examine the history, structure and guidance provided in Surah al-An’am
and their contemporary relevance.
