Ramadan 1440/2019: Black Muslims Reflect on the Qur’an – Juz’ 2

By Umm Zakiyyah

Juz’ 2 of the Qur’an comprises the chapter of al-Baqarah (The Cow) verses 142 to 252. In this juz’, Allah establishes rules and regulations and sets out warnings to the believers about idolatry. Throughout this section of the Qur’an, we are reminded to overcome the nafs and seek only Allah in our hearts.  It is in this spirit that Umm Zakiyyah reflects.
