Reasons for Revelation

They’re many reasons written about why surah yasin is revealed

The most important reason is reported by ibn Naeem and derived from Ibn Abbas that the prophet Muhammad was praying publicly and the disbelievers in Mecca were hearing him and they decided to harm him

so allah almighty protected his holy prophet and made them blind, as a punishment for them, so they came to the prophet and pleaded with him to return their sight, and the prophet prayed to him so they can see again,

This story was concluded in this verse of surah Yaseen.

“and have placed a barrier before them and a barrier behind them and covered them ˹all˺ up, so they fail to see ˹the truth˺. Yasin, 9

The Story for Verse 78

” And They Argue with Us—forgetting They Were Created—saying, “who Will Give Life to Decayed Bones?

ibn Jarīr  mentioned in his book that Al-As ibn Wa’il , one of the well-known disbelievers in Mecca came to prophet Mohammed, carrying some bones, then he smashed them and ask the prophet:

O, Mohammed, will Allah resurrect those bones after their decay?

So, allah give the answer for him in Quran in the following verse:

Say, “He will give them life who produced them the first time; and He is, of all creation, Knowing.” (Yaseen, 79).

The Messages of Surah Yaseen

Surah Yaseen Includes Some of The Great Lessons that Will Strengthen Your Faith in Allah

  • The surah begins with a confirmation of the Quran, the message of Allah, and the revelation and affirms Mohammed’s prophethood. He doesn’t improvise the Quran but it’s revealed to him by Allah
  • Prophet Mohammed was sent to the people from Mecca to inform them about the message of Allah, resurrection, and judgment and no messenger had the responsibility to inform and warn them before.
  • Most people won’t believe in his message and that was predetermined by Allah. Thus, the prophet’s role is to inform only those who fear him and to promise them forgiveness and great rewards.
  • Allah set forth a parable for a village filled with idol worshippers. He sent to this village three messengers to guide them to Allah. but they denied their message, and even said, “You are not but human beings like us, and the Most Merciful has not revealed a thing. You are only telling lies.
  • However, there is someone, a good believer came to them to preach and give evidence for why they should follow the passengers. And though they killed him, he wished they’d know what great rewards allah prepared for the believers.
  • The surah includes many pieces of evidence that assert the existence of Allah and urges the people to use their reasoning and reflect on his signs in the universe, and acknowledge Allah’s blessings

“And a sign for them is the night. We remove from it [the light of] day, so they are [left] in darkness. And the sun runs [on course] toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing. And the moon – We have determined its phases until it returns [appearing] like the old date stalk. ( Yaseen, 37-39)

  • The surah also shows the destiny of the disbelievers. People who deny allah and belies the messenger will regret the day of judgment and realize that they couldn’t go back to their families or can’t make any instructions. However, those people were scolding and made fun of the believers in life.
  • Allah consoles prophet Mohammed to not feel sad for their mockery as those people belied Allah, himself, though he created them from nothing. But they will return back to him and all of their deeds are counted and their senses will bear witness to what they did

“That Day, We will seal over their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will testify about what they used to earn. (Yaseen, 65),
