Surah Al A`la — Jewels of the Qur'an

Surah Al A`la — Jewels of the Qur'an
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

Al A`la means, the highest, that which is beyond the mental capacity to understand. This Surah deals with the purpose of human beings on this earth and the direction we constantly need to refer to. Everything is glorifying and expressing its ruh, from an insect to a lion to a tree.They are all glorifying Allah in their own way.

(32:21)
