Surah Al-Hashr (The Mustering, Bringing together)

This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 24 verses and 3 sections

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

"He is Allah , other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Lord of Greatness. Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him.” (59:23)

COMMENTARY: The attribute Al-Mutakabbir [the Lord of Greatness] is derived from Takabbur and that from Kibriya' meaning 'greatness' which is one of the peculiar characteristics of Allah. It implies that every greatness is attributable only to Allah who is not in need of anyone. Whoever is in need cannot be great. Therefore, if this word is used for a person other than Allah, it is a defect and sin, because the claim of greatness by a person who is not actually great is false and tantamount to a claim of being a partner of Allah, the Besought of all, in one of His exclusive attributes. That is why the word Al-Mutakabbir, when attributed to Allah is an attribute of perfection, but in respect of others it is no more than a false claim.

I stand quietly in the howling wind, hoping that the force of the wind would carry away the loneliness.
I watch the sunset with its most vibrant colors fade behind the horizon,
each flower petal silently draws nearer to me as if to say,
"come embrace us once, let our fragrance wrap itself around you"
I felt so alone,
so full of despair.

I watch the rhythmic waves roll back and forth, kissing the shore and presenting gifts of love to it,
Birds carefree, magnificently soar into the skies competing with the colourful array of kites.
I feel the sand burying itself between my delicate toes
I felt so alone,
so full of despair.

Officers at a military installation were being lectured about a new computer. The training officer said the computer was able to withstand nuclear and chemical attacks.

Suddenly, he saw that one of the officers had a cup of coffee and yelled, "There will be no eating or drinking in this room! You'll have to get rid of that coffee."

The officer said meekly, "Sure, but why?"

"Because a coffee spill could ruin the keyboard."
