The Qur’an: Advice, Cure, Guidance, & Mercy
By Mufti Ismail Menk
Today we dive into Surah Yunus mashAllah. And Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says, يَأَيُّهَاالنَّاسُ, (ya ayyuha anas) – Oh people. This is verse number 57 of Surat Yunus. Oh People, imagine the Maker is saying Oh People. SubhanAllah. Amazing. I am one of them. In fact, I have another title as well, inshAllah يَأَيّهَاالَّذِينَءَامَنُو (ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo)– Oh Believers, Oh you who believe, Here Allah is saying يَأَيُّهَاالنَّاسُ قَدْجآءَتْكُم مَّوْعِظَةٌمِّن رَّبِّكُمْ (ya ayyuha annasu qad jaatkum mawAAithatun min rabbikum) – A reminder has come to you from your Rabb. The word Rabb is used because He is talking to people, sometimes if you say “Allah” someone might say “I don’t believe in Allah” well then tell them your Maker. That is who Allah is – the One who is in control of every aspect of your existence. So if you notice when Allah says يَأَيُّهَاالنَّاسُ, (ya ayyuha annas), a lot of the times He uses the term Rabbun يَأَيُّهَاالنَّاسُ اِتَّقُواْرَبَّكُمْ, (ya ayyuha annasu itaqoo rabbukum) – and when He sometimes says يَأَيّهَاالَّذِينَءَامَنُو, (ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo), you will find the term Allah being used later on. This is something that I found in the Quran amazing.
