Central Theme [ edit ] Last edited: 04/03/2016

The Surah consists of two discourses, the first from the beginning of the Surah to the end of verse 58 and the second from verse 59 to the end. The theme of the first discourse is that the people who benefit from the guidance of the Qur’an and its blessings are those who accept the realities which it presents. They are then obedient and submissive to God’s guidance, by following it in their practical lives. One of the greatest hindrances for man is the denial of the Hereafter. For it makes him irresponsible, selfish and eager for the worldly life, which in turn makes it impossible for him to submit himself before God and to accept the moral restrictions on his lusts and desires.

    :طس ۚ تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْقُرْآنِ وَكِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ "Ta, Seen. These are the verses of the Qur'an and a clear Book" (27:1)
    وَأَنْ أَتْلُوَ الْقُرْآنَ ۖ فَمَنِ اهْتَدَىٰ فَإِنَّمَا يَهْتَدِي لِنَفْسِهِ ۖ وَمَن ضَلَّ فَقُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُنذِرِينَ "And say, And to recite the Qur'an." And whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] himself; and whoever strays - say, "I am only [one] of the warners." (27:92)
