QURAN LESSONS

Surah Al-Mulk (The Kingdom) 67
This Surah is Makki, and it has 30 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

And We have decorated the nearest sky with lamps, and have made them devices to stone the devils, and We have prepared for them the punishment of Hell... 67:5

COMMENTARY: The word 'Masaabih' (translated above as 'lamps') stands for 'stars'. The fact that the sky is decorated with stars does not necessarily imply that they should be studded with them inside or under the sky. The decoration is available also to the situation when the stars are far below the sky in space as modern research has proved it by observation. This is not contradictory to
the classical interpretation.

The statement: '[We] have made them [stars] devices to stone the devils' probably implies that some fiery matters originating from the stars are used to shoot at them, and the stars themselves remain intact in their position. Since this illuminated matter seems to the common people as 'falling stars'. [Qurtubi]

This further shows that devils who attempt to eavesdrop on celestial conversations for information are driven away before they can reach the stars. [Qurtubi]

Thus far evidence and proofs of Allah's consummate knowledge and power were adduced with reference to the various types of creation. In the verses that follow the subject of punishment for unbelievers and of re-ward for believers and the obedient is taken up, thus: "And for those who disbelieve, there is the punishment of Jahannam"...67:6). The subject runs through seven verses. Thereafter, the subject of Divine knowledge and power is revisited.

POEM
Our Jihad within ourselves

Ya Allah give us the strength,
Help us fight our Nafs, in huge length,

Help us fight this fight,
Help us do what's right,
Help us to see the light,
So our grave will not be too tight

Let us say no, and imagine
A place beneath which rivers flow
On the day of Qiyamah hope our bodies will glow

Help us not to indulge
Help us not to divulge
What others have secretly done
To have some “fun”.

Ya Allah grant us Hidayat
Help us fight this fight
Help us to do what's right
Help us never to lose sight,
of
Rivers beneath which rivers flow
For my deeds hope this will be what I have to show

Ya Allah grant us strong Eemaan
Grant us Hidayah, lets not confuse what's “fun”
Lets fight the fight,
When its our turn we have a good flight…

Will u land in a place
Where u can see ur face,
A place where beneath which rivers flow...
A picture which is new
Can u imagine the view

THE SMILE

A certain journalist did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan several years before the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the old regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.

She approached one of the Afghani women and asked, 'Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?'

The woman looked at her straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, "Land mines."

The moral of the story is (no matter what language you speak or where you go): BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A SMART WOMAN!
