Juz' 17

The Quran in general is divided into chapters (surah) and verses (ayat). It is additionally divided into 30 equal sections, called juz . Of note, division into Juzʾ has no relevance to the meaning of the Quran and anyone can start reading from anywhere in the Quran. The divisions of juz do not fall evenly along chapter lines. These divisions make it easier to pace the reading over a month’s period, reading a fairly equal amount each day. This is particularly important during the month of Ramadan, when it is recommended to complete at least one full reading of the Quran from cover to cover. Some use this divisions to facilitate recitation of the Quran in a month, especially during Ramadan when the entire Quran is recited in the Tarawih prayers, reciting approximately one juzʾ a night. 

The seventeenth juz’ of the Quran contains two complete chapters of the Quran: Surah Al-Anbiya and Surah Al-Hajj (21:1-22:78).

Select Quotations:

“Had there been within both (the heavens [meanings] and the earth [actions]) gods besides Allah, verily this system would have lost its order. So exalted (subhan) is Allah, Rabb of the Throne (who creates and forms existence from the quantum potential, at will) beyond the definitions they attribute to Him.” (Quran 21:22)

“He is not questioned for what He does! (as there is no duality!)...” (Quran 21:23)

Do those who deny the knowledge of the reality not see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (at the sub-atomic level) and We separated them (through densified levels of perception). We have created every living thing from water (H2O)... Do they still not believe? (Quran 21:30)

Every soul (consciousness) will TASTE death! We test you with the good and the bad so that you discover the forces within yourself... And to Us you will be returned. (Quran 21:35)

“And We have not revealed you except as grace to the worlds (people).” (Quran 21:107)

“This is the result of what your hands have put forth. Verily, Allah is never unjust to [His] servants (Allah is not the cause of your dual perception; it is the ego or your constructed identity who attributes a separate existence to itself, hence causing duality [shirq] which leads to suffering).” (Quran 22:10)

Indeed, Allah does as He wills.” (He forms what He wills to manifest from His knowledge with Power; Knowledge – Will – Power) (Quran 22:14)

“...Allah enables the observation of his innermost essential reality to whom He wills.” (Quran 22:16)

“Do you not see that to Allah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, the moving creatures and many of the people? But upon many the suffering has been justified. And he whom Allah humiliates – for him there is no bestower of honor. Indeed, Allah does what He wills.” (Quran 22:18)

“In the sight of your Rabb (the perception at the level of your essential reality manifested by the forces comprising your being) one day is like one thousand (earthly) years! (Allah knows best but I believe this verse is in reference to the perception pertaining to the dimension of life after death, for, ‘your Rabb’ connotes the state of consciousness [the perception of time in one’s brain or cocoon reality] as a result of one’s individual Rabb or composition of Names. This is not in reference to the ‘Rabb of the worlds’)(Quran 22:47)

“They did not justly appraise (the manifestations of the qualities denoted by the name) Allah ...” (Quran 22:74)
