*A reminder to students
Each Surah has history that will need to be recorded and memorized by you. Where was the surah revealed? What details explain the events that were taking place at the time it was revealed. Any special benefits that you gained while reading the tafsir.
Remember, it is not permissible to self-interpret the ayaat. So stay far away from that inshaAllah. Also, when quoting a hadith - DO NOT PARAPHRASE write it exactly as it is reported with the narrator or the source inshaAllah. May Allah protect all of us from falling into error aameen.

Alhamdulillaahi nahmaduhu wa nasta’eenahu wa nastaghfiruhu, wa na’oodhu billaahi min shuroori anfusinaa wa min sayi’aati a’maalinaa. Man yahdih Illaahu falaa mudilla lahu wa man yudlil falaa haadiya lahu. Wa ashhadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu la sharika lahu wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasooluhu sallalahu alayhi wa ala alihi wasallam amma ba’ad.
My benefit from the Tafsir of Ibn Kathir - we have learned that Surah Al-Jinn was revealed in Mecca. The reading begins with a command from Allah to the Messenger (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallam) to inform the people about the Jinns and that they too listen to the Quran. That they believed in it, affirmed its truthfulness and that they adhered to it. Regarding the affirmation of the Jinns; they affirm that Allah is Exalted and Above all the enormaties of falsehood that have been attributed to Him. He is free from having a mate and from having children, and that He is magnificient and Above all else. May Allah save us from destruction, Aameen. Barakallahu Feekum
May Allah bless me and you with understanding of the religion , aameen
