Recited by Mishary Al-Afasy with transliteration and English translation
This Meccan surah is the 93rd surah of the Qur'an with 11 ayat.
Although there is some debate amongst scholars, this surah in often considered to be the second revealed to Muhammad. After the first sura (al-Alaq) was received, there was a period of silence in which no further messages were revealed. During this time, the Prophet May peace be upon him wondered if he had somehow displeased Allah, who it seemed for a while was no longer sending down His message. This surah broke that silence, and reassured Muhammad salalahu aleihi wasallam that all will be understood in time. The image of the morning (ad-Dhuha) is the first word of the surah, and can be understood as symbolizing Muhammad's "new day" as the Messenger of Allah, as well as the "dawn" of the new way of life that would become Islam. After this surah, the visitations of Gabriel with the words of the Qur'an would come to Muhammad regularly until his death.
Because of subject matter, length, style, and placement in the Qur'an, this sura is often coupled with Sura Al-Inshirah. They are generally considered to have be revealed around the same time.
