Quraysh (Quraish)

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1For the covenants by the Quraish.1

2Their covenants journeys by winter and summer.

3Let them adore the Lord of this house.

4Who provides them with food against hunger and with security against fear.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1Li ilafi quraisyin

2Lilafihim rihlatasy syitai wash shaif

3Falyabudu rabba hazal bait

4Alladzi athamahum min juiw wa amanahum min khauf

1. The Quraish were the foremost tribe in Mecca. They were the custodians of the Kaabah which contained 365 idols. Muhammad is from this tribe and his father served in this shrine as well. His father’s name Abdullah means “a slave of Allah.” To say that Allah is the same as god Almighty, this chapter reveals otherwise. While serving idols in pre-Islamic Arabia, he was called the slave of Allah. The Arabs were a people whom according to the Qur’an had not had their own prophet before the coming of Muhammad, which means they could not have known the true God, who is the Creator of all things. Allah is not the same as God Almighty.
