Surah Muzzammil is one of the priceless Surahs that gives direction and a way for a person’s wishes to be accepted.

Do you know the nine benefits of Surah Muzzamil in the Quran? Keep reading to know more.

What Is The Meaning Of Surah Muzzammil?

Muzammil means “Wrapped One in Garment” or “Enshrouded One”. The Holy Quran uses this word to describe Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah upon him.

It’s said in the first verse of Surah Muzzammil, as Allah SWT addresses Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):

“O you who have wrapped up in your garments!”

followed by the actual order:

“Stand (to prayer) by night, but not all night,- Half of it,- or a little less,”

Where Is Surah Muzammil In Quran?

Surah Muzzamil is the seventy-third chapter (surah) of the Holy Quran containing 20 verses.

It starts on page 574 in Mushaf Sharif. Following the Jinn Surah and followed by surah al muddathir.

In Which Para Is Surah Muzammil?

Surah Muzammil in the 29th para (Juz) of The Holy Quran. This Juz is called Tabarak (Blessed is He [Allah]),

as the first ayah in this Juz is “Tabarak alladhi be-yadhi al mulk” in Surah Mulk.

When Was Surah Muzammil Revealed?

The two sections of this Surah were revealed at different times. The first part (1-19) is definitely a Makki (Meccan) Revelation,

as evidenced by its topic matter and Hadith traditions. While the second one (verse 20) is said to be a Madani (Medinan) revelation.

The First Section (1-19)

The tradition does not address when it was revealed in Makkah, but the internal evidence of the subject matter of this section helps in determining the era of its revelation.

This is how we know:-

  1. First, in it, the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) has been instructed to the effect: “Arise during the night and worship Allah so that you may develop the capability to shoulder the heavy burden of Prophethood and to discharge its responsibilities.”
  2. This demonstrates that this Command must have been delivered during the early era of the Prophethood when Allah was still preparing the Holy Prophet.
  3. It includes the Quranic message in it that the Quran be recited in the Tahajjud Prayer for half a night or so. This Command, by itself, indicates that by that time, at least a huge portion of al Quran al Kareem had been revealed that could be recited for that amount of time.
  4. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) has been encouraged to be patient in the face of his opponents’ excesses who have been threatened with torture.

This demonstrates that this section was revealed at a time when the Holy Prophet (PBUH) had openly begun spreading Islam and the resistance to him had grown active and powerful in Makkah.

The Second Section (Verse 20)

Although many commentators believe that the second section (verse 20) was also sent down at Makkah,

some other commentators believe it is a Madani Revelation that was sent down 10 years after the first section, which is supported by the subject matter of this section as well

For it includes fighting in the way of Allah, and certainly, there could be no doubt about it at Makkah;

it also contains the Command to pay the compulsory Zakat, and it is completely verified that the zakat was enjoined at Madinah at a particular rate and with an exemption limit (nisab).

Why Was Surah Muzammil Revealed?

Surah Muzammil, with its two sections, was revealed for several reasons. These reasons include:

  1. It directs Muslims towards spreading the Islamic message. In simple words, communicating and conveying Allah’s message to humanity and making it clear to the people why Allah SWT has sent us to this world.
  2. The second portion is made up of a longer verse. In this section, Allah commanded Muslims to pay the required zakat. The zakat limit (nisab) was established. And how, to accomplish this obligation, it is important to reach out to those in need.
  3. Later in the Surah, night prayer (Tahajjud) was also mentioned and emphasized. The benefits of night prayer and how it may alter a person’s life were explained to Muslims.

Surah Muzammil Tafseer

The First Section

Verses (1-7):

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) was commanded to “prepare yourself to shoulder the responsibilities of the great Mission that has been entrusted to you (prophecy);

its practical form is that you should rise during the hours of the night and stand up in Prayer for half the night, or for a little more or less of it.”

Verse (8-14):

Then he was encouraged to “devote yourself entirely to that Allah Who is the Owner of the entire universe.”

“With complete heart joy, entrust all your affairs to Him. Keep your calm no matter what your opponents say about you.

Don’t go too close to them. Leave their issue to Allah; He will deal with it.”

Verses (15-19):

Those in Makkah who were fighting the Holy Prophet (PBUH) had been informed, so as to say: “We have sent a Messenger to you, just as We did to the Pharaoh.

Consider what happened to Pharaoh when he refused the invitation of Allah’s Messenger.

How will you spare yourself from the punishment for unbelief on the Day of Resurrection if you are not punished by anguish in this world?”

The Second Section

Verse (20):

The new command later included “Offer as much of the Tahajjud Prayer as you easily can,

but what the Muslim should particularly mind and attend to is the five times obligatory Prayer a day,

which they should establish regularly and punctually; they should discharge their zakat dues accurately,

and they should spend their wealth with sincere intentions for the sake of Allah.”

Finally, Muslims were encouraged, stating, “Whatever good acts you accomplish in the world will not go to waste,

but they are like the provision which a traveler sends up ahead of time to his permanent place of residence.”

Surah Muzammil Translation in English

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

  1. O thou folded in garments!
  2. Stand (to prayer) by night, but not all night,-
  3. Half of it,- or a little less,
  4. Or a little more; and recite the Qur´an in slow, measured rhythmic tones.
  5. Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message.
  6. Truly the rising by night is most potent for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (framing) the Word (of Prayer and Praise).
  7. True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties:
  8. But keep in remembrance the name of thy Lord and devote thyself to Him whole-heartedly.
  9. (He is) Lord of the East and the West: there is no god but He: take Him therefore for (thy) Disposer of Affairs.
  10. And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity).
  11. And leave Me (alone to deal with) those in possession of the good things of life, who (yet) deny the Truth; and bear with them for a little while.
  12. With Us are Fetters (to bind them), and a Fire (to burn them),
  13. And a Food that chokes, and a Penalty Grievous.
  14. One Day the earth and the mountains will be in violent commotion. And the mountains will be as a heap of sand poured out and flowing down.
  15. We have sent to you, (O men!) a messenger, to be a witness concerning you, even as We sent a messenger to Pharaoh.
  16. But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger; so We seized him with a heavy Punishment.
  17. Then how shall ye, if ye deny (Allah), guard yourselves against a Day that will make children hoary-headed?-
  18. Whereon the sky will be cleft asunder? His Promise needs must be accomplished.
  19. Verily this is an Admonition: therefore, whoso will let him take a (straight) path to his Lord!
  20. Thy Lord doth know that thou standest forth (to prayer) nigh two-thirds of the night, or half the night, or a third of the night, and so doth a party of those with thee. But Allah doth appoint night and day in due measure He knoweth that ye are unable to keep count thereof. So He hath turned to you (in mercy): read ye, therefore, of the Qur´an as much as may be easy for you. He knoweth that there may be (some) among you in ill-health; others traveling through the land, seeking of Allah´s bounty; yet others fighting in Allah´s Cause, read ye, therefore, as much of the Qur´an as may be easy (for you); and establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity; and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan. And whatever good ye send forth for your souls ye shall find it in Allah´s Presence,- yea, better and greater, in Reward and seek ye the Grace of Allah: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
