Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

"Compete each other in proceeding towards forgiveness from your Lord and to Paradise, the width of which is like the width of the sky and the earth..." 57:21

COMMENTARY: The verse under comment defines that Paradise will be as wide as the heaven and the earth. A similar verse occurs in Surah Al-'Imran [3:133] where the word 'skies' is plural, whereas here the word sama' (sky) is singular, from which we gather that both the words, the singular as well as the plural, refer to all the seven heavens, meaning if the vastness of the seven heavens and the earth are put together, that will be the width of Paradise. Obviously, the length of anything is greater than its breadth.

This shows that the length of Paradise is greater than the length of the seven heavens and earth. Sometimes the word width or breadth is used in the general sense of 'vastness' irrespective of its length. In both cases, the purport of the verse is to describe that Paradise is very vast, so vast that it can accommodate the entire heavens and the earth in its vastness.

I find it so funny how we all hide away so much, even though we are transparent to those who care the most!
Those fake smiles eventually fade and we have to expose ourselves.
We all fear pain I understand, but why should we lie and say we are fine when we are not?
I am also guilty just like everyone else, why do we do it?
Why don't we come out and say exactly what we feel?

It hurts so much but we just can't do it.
You want to know why?
Because we don't want to be judged by others
We don't want them to know our flaws or see the real us.
And not the person they want to see.
