Surah Yassin was revealed in Mecca before the migration of the prophet peace be upon him, so it’s makki in place and time, that’s because the era before migration is called Makki and the era after the migration is called medani, and the only verse that was revealed in Madinah after the migration of the prophet peace be upon him was the verse number 45, and this was obvious through the characters of each verse.

surah yaseen by mishary


Tafseer of surah Yaseen

Surat Yaseen is composed of 83 verses that are separated into themes, so we will explain each theme:

The acknowledgment of the prophecy and the ingratitude of deniers:

This theme is the verses from 1 to 12:

verse 1 Yaseen

Those are Arabic letters, the presence at the beginning of the surah is one of the Quranic secrets, and also it has a beautiful rhyming sound.

Verses 2-5“And the wise Quran” indeed you are from the messenger” on the straight path” revelation from the mighty merciful”

Here Allah swore by the Quran, and only Allah can swear by Quran, that the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and his way is a way of righteousness, and the message that he carry is not by his own, it’s a message from Allah.

Verses 6-12

” to warn those people who their fathers were not warned, so they are neglectful”

“ Indeed, the judgment on them was true, that they disbelieve”

“ Indeed, we put shackles in their neck that reach to their chins, so their heads are fixed up tightly” 

“And we put in front of the barrier, and behind the barrier, and blinded them that they couldn’t see”

” And neither you warned them nor you didn’t they won’t believe”

” That you can only warn those who are following the words and fear the most merciful while they can’t see him, so give them the good tidings of forgiveness and generous rewards”

” Indeed, we are who revive the dead, and count what they did and what they left, and everything we counted is in a clear book”

Through those verses, Allah showed us that Allah didn’t send messengers to Arabs for a long time, and even if there were messengers to them, the disbelievers would neglect their messages and will torture him, so Allah blinded their hearts from the righteousness and left them in their ways.

The story of the owners of the village:

Verses 13 to 32:

Here Allah told the prophet, peace to be upon him, a story from the past eras, about the village of infidels, Allah sent to them two prophets and then the third to strengthen the previous prophets and to help them.

 The people of the village refused to believe and threaten them to stop their message otherwise they will torture them, then a believer from the village when heard what they did to the messengers, came and proclaim in front of all the village.

 He asked them to believe in what the messengers came with, then they killed him, and after he was killed Allah rewarded him by the heaven, and although they tortured him in the world life, he hoped they know his reward, may Allah gives them the chance to have the same reward if they believe.

The contemplation of the glory of the creator

Verses from 33 to 47

Here Allah reminds those infidels by his hand that appears in all the universe, his miracles that spread through it every single moment, and the blessings that are bestowed over them.

He began with the barren land that turned into a green one by the rain to give you the fruits to eat, and how he created them and their animals in pairs to reproduce.

And the night and day, another miracle of the creator and blessing to the creatures, Although the sun and moon are very far away from us, they are servants of Allah, commanded to follow each other to give us the light and night.

Another miracle, the sea, and ships, why the ship doesn’t sink, who taught us the difference in the physical characteristics of the water and the matters which we are using in building ships?!

 Whatever the miracles were clear for the infidels they refuse to believe, and if you told them to feed the poor they remember the miracles! If Allah wants to feed them, he will. 

The resurrection day and scenes from the life after:

Verses from 48 to 70

The question about the hour will be the infidel’s question till the time of the Hour, in the resurrection day that will begin by the shout,  they all will be dead, and another shout will revive them from their death to start the day of resurrection.

 Now they won’t be able to deny now they will believe the promise of Allah and the messengers.

Now we will talk about scenes on the resurrection day:

  1. the first one is about the winners, those who believe in Allah and His messengers, they will win the paradise, they and their partners will be busy with the different types of blessings, decorative beds in the shade of paradise trees, and a special type of reward to them greetings from Allah and peace” a peaceful saying from merciful god”
  2. The second scene is about the criminals, those who refuse to obey the creator and worship his creature” Satan”, they will earn “Jahanam “ the endless fire that they were promised to earn if they disbelieve, that day their hands will speak and their feet will be a witness about what they did in their life.

 All of this was a revelation to the prophet peace be upon him from Allah, it wasn’t poetry, this was a warning for those who have hearts and minds, and the infidels deserve their torment.

Statement about the greatness of Allah, and the blindness of infidels

Didn’t they ask about the animals they eat or ride, didn’t they see the greatness of the creator on them, not only disobey Allah but worship other gods that can’t give them the causes of victory!

And the merciful God knew that their claims would hurt the prophet, peace be upon him, but he said to him not to be. 

Didn’t this blind man see his first creation?

 He was only sperm in the deep place, now, he is asking who will revive the bone trace?!

Tell him Allah who created us the first time will revive us, Allah who brought fire from the green tree, And Allah who created the enormous heaven and earth, he has the power when he wants something he just says to it “be” so it will.
