History of surah The Constellations

The Constellations



Revelation Place




The Surat Al-Buruj was so named because the word Al-Buruj occurs in the first verse in which God Almighty swears by the heavens because of His goodness. He who created the heavens well and created in them planets and stars that move in order in the sky without any of them colliding with the other, and these are some of the wonders of God's creation.

Period of Revelation

Surat Al-Buruj is one of the Meccan Suras revealed before the emigration of the Messenger - may God bless him and grant him peace - and the number of its verses is twenty-two. It was revealed after Surat Al-Shams.
One of the most important reasons for the revelation of Surat Al-Buruj is to teach Muslims the fundamentals of their religion and to prevent them from being influenced by temptations, and to instill in them the spirit of jihad and self-sacrifice for the sake of religion and for the sake of God, and to prove their faith, after they have suffered harm, God Almighty has told the story of the owners of the furrow so that Muslims may learn from it that the one who is patient and awaits his reward in paradise, and so that they may know that there were peoples in ancient times who suffered torment and injustice and dealt with it patiently.
