“The Dawn of Hope:

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born in Makkah, a city surrounded by vast deserts and rocky mountains. He grew up in a community where most people followed different beliefs and did not know the true path to Allah. Muhammad was known for his honesty, truthfulness, kindness, and humility from a very young age. Little did he know that Allah had chosen him to be a messenger, a guide for the people of Makkah who lived in ignorance.

Prophet Muhammad had received Allah’s messages for several years, guiding him on how to be a good person and how to teach others about Allah’s love and kindness. But then, something strange occurred. The revelations stopped coming. For days, weeks, and even months, there was silence from Allah.

Muhammad (peace be upon him) began to worry. He wondered if he had done something wrong or if Allah was upset with him. His heart felt heavy, and he missed the comforting words of Allah. He felt lonely and sad, not knowing when the next revelation would come.

The people of Makkah, who opposed his message, saw this as an opportunity to mock him. They laughed and taunted him, saying, “Your Lord has abandoned you!” Some even made up stories to spread doubt among the believers.

But deep down, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) never lost faith. He knew that Allah had a plan, and he continued to pray and seek Allah’s guidance. He spent his days helping the poor, comforting the oppressed, and spreading love and kindness, even in the face of adversity.

Then, one morning, as the sun was rising, something beautiful happened. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) received a revelation from Allah. It was Surah Ad-Duha, the Chapter of the Morning Hours.

Allah spoke to him through these verses, saying, “Did He not find you an orphan and give [you] refuge? And He found you lost and guided [you], And He found you poor and made [you] self-sufficient.”

Tears of joy filled Muhammad’s eyes as he realized that Allah had not abandoned him. Allah was reminding him of all the blessings and guidance he had received throughout his life. It was like a warm hug from the Most Merciful.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was overwhelmed with gratitude and relief. He knew that Allah had a plan all along, and this pause in revelations was a test of his faith and patience. Surah Ad-Duha brought him immense comfort and reassurance.

He continued his mission with even more determination, spreading Allah’s message of love and kindness. The people of Makkah may have mocked him, but he knew that Allah was with him, guiding him every step of the way.

And so, Surah Ad-Duha became a source of hope and strength for all believers, reminding them that even in the darkest moments, Allah’s blessings and guidance are always near.
