Sura Shams is a short chapter of the Quran which contains the greatest number of oaths at the beginning of any chapter. Why does Allah swt use all these oaths? Why does He, the All Truthful need to use oaths? What is of such importance that 11 important things such as the sun and moon are used to indicate its importance?

In the final session on the study of Sura Rum, we discuss verse 41 which talks about how the actions of mankind are impacting the planet. This verse is so very relevant in today's age when we are facing the impact of climate change. 

We also discuss the relationship between physical renewal of the earth through winds and the spiritual renewal of mankind through revelation.

Continuing with our study of Sura Rum, in this section we reflect important and well known verses of the Holy Quran. Verses 30 - 40 of Sura Rum have so many important verses to discuss and reflect on including the concept of Deen of Fitra, of giving to the near of kin their due and the philosophy behind the prohibition on usury. :

Verse 30 talks about how there can never be a change or alternation in Allah's creation

Verse 38 talks about giving the near of kin their due. We review the story behind this verse
