Canary Wharf Muslim Association [WharfMA] presents:

with Ustadh Hafiz Abdullah Muhammad*

Date: Tuesday 24th April 2012
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Venue: Idea Store Canary Wharf, Churchill Place,
Canary Wharf, London E14 5RB

Surah Ambiya is the 21st Chapter of the Quran and was revealed in Makkah.
It is so named after a reference to several prophets in the Surah such as
Ibrahim, Musa, Ayyub, Yunus, Zakariyya and ‘Isa who is mentioned alongside
his mother Maryam (peace be upon them all). Unlike other places in the
Quran (e.g. Surah A’raf & Surah Shu’ara) where stories of a series of
prophets are told in chronological order and showing the fate of those
who denied them (known as ‘punishment stories’ in academic circles),
the prophets cited in this Surah serve a different function.

By recalling the stories of previous prophets, this Surah informs us how
Almighty Allah answered the supplications of His Chosen Servants and He is
prepared to do the same for believers. Examples cited of the prophets include
the Du’a of Ayyub to be relieved of suffering, Yunus to be delivered from the
whale and Zakariyya to be granted a child. By citing the examples of the
previous prophets, the objection of the disbelievers that a human being
could not be a messenger of God has been refuted. The Prophet Muhammad
(SAW) is also described as ‘Mercy for the Worlds’.

In this session of the monthly Journey Through the
Qur’an series, we will examine the history, structure
and guidance provided in this Surah and its
contemporary relevance.
