MUSLIMCREED Surah Al Maun is the 107th surah in the Quran which means useful things. This letter was revealed in Mecca, so it is included in the Makkiyah letter. Surah Al Maun is a short letter, because it only consists of 7 short verses, so it is easy to memorize.
Although the letter Al Maun was revealed in the city of Mecca and is included in the Makkiyah letter, the majority of the scholars are of the opinion that the letter Al-Maun is the 17th letter that was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad SAW, thus stating that the letter Al Maun belongs to the Madaniyyah letter.
However, there are also some scholars who argue that part of Surah Al Maun came down in Mecca while the other part came down in Medina. Surah Al Maun is before the letter Al Kafirun and after the letter At Takasur. Surah Al Maun has the privilege and its contents explain the morals of those who deny religion and the hereafter. Here’s the full explanation.
In the first aya there is the word ad din in the first verse which means al jazau which means recompense. The application of this word is the same as when someone does good to humans, then God will do good to him. Someone who lightens the burden of others, then Allah will lighten his burden in this world and in the hereafter.
Someone who makes other people happy, then Allah will make him happy. And among the names of the Day of Judgment is the Day of Judgment.
Surah Al Maun tells the story of a person who initially denies religion, then on the last day or in the hereafter finally this attitude causes very bad morals.
From this interpretation it is also known that faith in the hereafter is a very important matter. Whoever believes in the Day of Judgment, then he will do the best in this world. However, whoever does not believe in the day of resurrection and the day of vengeance or doubts about it, then he will dare to commit disobedience or do things that are cursed by Allah. Therefore, people whose faith is strong in the last day will show their qualities.
