Reasons Behind Revealing Surat Muzammil:
Muzammil surah is a Meccan surah because the majority of its Ayaat was revealed in Mecca and only a small portion was revealed in Madinah. During the period from 610AD-615AD Sura Muzamal was unfolded. At that time the opposition to our last Messenger (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) became vocal and powerful and He (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) had openly begun to propagate Islam.
Surah Al Muzammil Background
Surah Al Muzammil was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ) to prepare Him (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) for the heavy responsibility of spreading the message of Islam. Many difficulties are yet to come such as
- The victimization of your followers.
- The battles against non-Muslims.
- The leaving of your home, Makkah. (Surah Muzammil Tafseer by Syed Abu Aala Maududi)
Therefore, it is instructed in this surah:
Oh you wrapped in a shawl (Surah 73, Ruku 1, Para 29)
Here, Allah Almighty said to the Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ), “Why are you staying wrapped up in a shawl? Stand up! And pray at night because that is the only way to stand firm against the evil opposition”
قُمِ ٱلَّيۡلَ إِلَّا قَلِيلٗا نِّصۡفَهُۥٓ أَوِ ٱنقُصۡ مِنۡهُ قَلِيلًا
Arise [to pray] at night, except for a little – (Ayah:2, Surah:67). Half of it – or subtract from it a little (Ayah:3, Surah:67)
To handle this huge responsibility Allah asks the Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) to pray at night with full concentration away from all the worldly distractions
