Surah Ad-Dahr is the 76th chapter of the Quran. It comprises 31 verses (ayat) and is a Madani surah, revealed in the city of Madinah after the Prophet Muhammad’s migration from Makkah.
The chapter is named “Ad-Dahr,” which translates to “Time” or “Man.” It addresses a range of themes, including the responsibilities of believers, their relationship with God, and the rewards and consequences they will face based on their actions.
Surah Ad-Dahr emphasizes the importance of compassion, generosity, and providing for those in need. It highlights the qualities of a true believer who spends in the way of God, is patient, and seeks to please their Creator rather than seeking praise from others.
The surah also contrasts the attitudes of disbelievers and believers, particularly in their responses to the call of the Prophet Muhammad. It offers a reminder of the transient nature of worldly life and the eternal rewards of the Hereafter.
Surah Dahr encourages believers to maintain their faith and strive for righteousness, even in the face of challenges and difficulties. It teaches lessons about humility, sincerity, and the ultimate accountability that awaits all individuals.
