of Qur’an Chapter 20 Surah Taha

[These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur’an, and none but Allah
(Alone) knows their meanings

surah was revealed in the very early period of Makkah. It is proved by
authentic traditions that Hazrat Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) converted
to Islam after listening to this surah. His sister Hazrat Fatima and his
brother-in-law Hazrat Saeed bin Zayd (May Allah be pleased with him) had
secretly converted to Islam before him. Which they didn’t know.

day he left the house with the intention of killing Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). On
the way, he met a man named Naeem bin Abdullah, he told Hazrat Umar that you
should first find out about your home where your sister and brother-in-law have
become Muslims. When Hazrat Umar came back in a state of anger, his sister and
brother-in-law were reciting Surah Taha from Hazrat Khabab bin Arath (May Allah
be pleased with him).

he saw Hazrat Umar coming, he hid the scripture on which Surah Taha was written
somewhere, but Hazrat Umar had already heard the sound of recitation. He said I
have come to know that you have become a Muslim and by saying this he beat both
the sister and the brother-in-law a lot. At that time, both of them said that
whatever punishment you give us, we have become Muslims, and they were reciting
the word that was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him
peace. Hazrat Umar said, “Well, show me too, what kind of speech it

sister made him take a bath and showed him the scripture in which the surah was
written. After reading it, Hazrat Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) They
were stunned, and they were convinced that this was not the word of a human
being, but the word of Allah. Hazrat Khabab (May Allah be pleased with him)
also encouraged him to convert to Islam and said that Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH)
had prayed that Allah would grant Islam to one of Abu Jahl or ‘Umar bin Khattab
so that to create the source of the power of Islam.

at that time, he came to the service of Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and
accepted Islam. The time when this Surah was revealed was a time of great
trials and sufferings for the Muslims. The disbelievers of Makkah made it
difficult for them to live. Therefore, the main purpose of this surah was to
convince them that these kinds of trials have happened to the bearers of the
knowledge of truth in all ages. But the end has been in their favor.

in this regard, the incident of Hazrat Musa (Peace Be Upon Him) has been
described in detail in this Surah, which proves both things. Also that the
believers face trials, and also that the final victory belongs to them. Apart
from this, it is also intended to prove that the basic invitation of all the
prophets is the same, that people should believe in Allah Almighty alone, and
not associate anyone with Him.
