Juz' 5

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 fifth juz’ of the Quran contains most of Surah An-Nisa, the fourth chapter of the Quran, starting from verse 24 and continuing to verse 147 of the same chapter.

Select Quotations:

“Indeed, Allah does not forgive (apparent or discrete forms of) shirq (i.e. directly or indirectly assuming the existence of beings ‘other’ than Allah, whether external objects [apparent] or our own egos [discrete]; thereby fragmenting the non-dual reality), but He forgives lesser sins other than this (ma doona) (‘lesser sins’ here connotes the perception that actions are initiated by the self/ego rather than by Allah), as He wills...” (Quran 4:48)

“...But if good comes to them, they say, ‘This is from Allah’; and if evil befalls them, they say, ‘This is from you.’ Say, ‘All [things] are from Allah...’” (Quran 4:78)

“Whatever good comes to you it is from Allah, but whatever evil comes to you it is from your self (from complying with your conditioned beliefs including your alleged ‘moral codes’)...” (Quran 4:79)

“...And remember Allah while standing, sitting, or [lying] on your sides (i.e. experience Him in your being at all times)...” (Quran 4:103)

“They turn to lifeless female deities in His stead, and hence they turn to none but stubborn useless Satan (ego).” (Quran 4:117)

“Allah has cursed (Iblis) for he had said, ‘I will surely take from among Your servants a significant portion. And I will mislead them, and I will arouse in them (sinful, bodily, empty) desires, and I will command them so they slit the ears of cattle (as sacrifice), and I will command them so they will alter the creation of Allah.’ And whoever takes Satan (bodily temptations; ego) as master instead of Allah has certainly suffered a great loss. Satan promises them and arouses false hope and desire in them. But Satan does not promise anything except delusion.” (Quran 4:118-120)

“‘O you who have believed; Aminu Billahi[1]’ That is, ‘O you who have believed, believe in Allah in accord with the meaning signified by the letter B.’...” (Quran 4:136)

[1] What does this mean? It means: Among all the worlds that are constituted by the meanings of the Names of Allah, your reality, existence and being also comprise the Names of Allah. Your Rabb, your very Reality is the al-Asma (the Names). Therefore, neither you nor anything else around you is anything other than the manifestations of these Names. So do not be of those who fail to see this non-dual reality, and who give a separate existence to things (like God) they believe is ‘other’ than Allah. Such duality will only result in burning, both in this life and the next. For further information: Introductory Information to Understanding the Quran
