About this episode

Nouman Ali Khan reminds us about something which Allah has reminded us in different parts of the Qur'an.

He begins with a detailed analysis and comprehension of the word - SubhanAllah. When is this blessed word uttered? Numerous examples are illustrated by which we decipher aptly its exact meaning.

The concept of the worship of the sun, the moon and stars in the Pre Islamic era is demonstrated. But Prophet Ibrahim AS asked the people of the time how they could worship something that is temporary. The purpose of this was to draw the attention of the people of his time about who is not temporary, and that is Allah SWT.

The next point of discussion is that of how the concept of sunrise and sunset is closely reminiscent is of our state of mind and our heart and different phases of our life. 

“By the morning brightness. And [by] the night when it covers with darkness, Your Lord has not taken leave of you, [O Muhammad], nor has He detested [you]. And the Hereafter is better for you than the first [life].”

- Surah Ad Duha, verses 1 - 4

Light and darkness are about our relationship with Allah and He makes us experience different emotional and physical trials, turmoils and tribulations so that we maintain patience and not be despaired, but be hopeful of the Mercy of Allah always.
