What is a juz of the Quran?:
What chapters and verses are included in Juz 30?:
When were the verses of this juz revealed?:
- "For those who believe and do righteous deeds, will be gardens beneath which rivers flow; that is the great triumph. Truly strong is the grip of thy Lord. It is He who creates from the very beginning, and He can restore life. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, full of loving kindness. Lord of the Throne, full of all glory, doer of what He intends." (85:11-16)
- "By degrees We shall teach you the message, so you shall not be forgetful, except as Allah wills. For He knows what is manifest and what is hidden. And We will make it easy for you to follow the Simple Path." (87:6-8)
- "But he has not made hast on the path that is steep. And what will explain the path that is steep? It is: freeing the slave, or the giving of food in a time of difficulty, to the orphan with claims of relationship, or to the indigent down in the dust. Then will he be of those who believe. And enjoin patience, constancy and self-restraint, and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. Such are the Companions of the Right Hand." (90:11-18)
- Did He not find you an orphan and gave you shelter and care? And He found you wandering, and gave you guidance? And He found you in need, and made you independent? Therefore, treat not the orphan with harshness, nor turn away those who ask, but the Bounty of thy Lord - rehearse and proclaim!"
- So verily, with every difficulty there is relief. Verily, with every difficulty there is relief. Therefore, when you are free from your immediate tasks, still work hard, and to thy Lord turn all your attention.
What is the main theme of this juz?:
These chapters also contain plenty of firm reminders of Allah's wrath upon those who reject faith. For example, in Surah Al-Mursalat (77th chapter) there is a verse which is repeated ten times: "Oh, woe to the rejectors of Truth!" Hell is often described as a place of suffering for those who deny the existence of God and those who demand to see "proof."
This entire juz' has a special name and a special place in Islamic practice. This juz' is often called juz' amma, a name which reflects the first word of the first verse of this section (78:1). It is usually the first part of the Quran that children and new Muslims learn to read, although it comes at the end of the Quran. This is because the chapters are shorter and easier to read/grasp, and the messages revealed in this section are most fundamental to a Muslim's faith.
