Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

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

"We have indeed sent Our messengers with clear proofs, and sent down with them the Book and the Balance, so that people may uphold justice. And We sent down iron in which there is strong power, and benefits for the people; and [We did it] so that Allah knows the one who helps Him and His messengers without seeing [Him]. Surely Allah is Strong, Mighty." (57:25)

COMMENTARY: The purpose of revealing these two factors is (so that people may uphold justice ... 57:25)... The factor of 'iron' has been mentioned last. This indicates that in the establishment of justice iron (metaphor of force) may be used only as a last resort, not as the first step. The real purpose of improving human society and establishing justice among them is to improve them in intellectual development and growth. The government may not exert its might and power to achieve the purpose of developing them intellectually. It may use it, only as the ultimate option, if they stand in the way of justice. The main thing is to cultivate the minds of the people by educating them.

Hey little fighter, feeling low?
Thought I'd just pass by and let you know,
After every storm, there's always a rainbow.

Hey brave soldier, feeling down?
Let's just start by flipping that frown upside down,
Before you know it, you'll be wearing a crown.

Hey valiant warrior, what's the matter?
How about we sit down and have a bit of chatter,
Procrastinating and keeping active, always choose the latter.

Hey great gladiator, felling all alone?
The more you stay idle, the more you'll be prone,
So radiate like a diamond and not just a stone.

So much negativity, so many lies,
So many people breaking social ties,
All YOU need to do is just take a few deep sighs,
And with every last ounce of energy, just stand up, and rise!

~ Abdullah Panjwani ~

2 + 2

A football coach walked into the locker room before a game, looked over to his star player and said, "I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we need you in there. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play."

The player agreed, and the coach looked into his eyes intently and asks, "Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this. What is two plus two?"

The player thought for a moment and then he answered, "4?"
"Did you say 4?" the coach exclaimed, excited that he got it right.
At that, all the other players on the team began screaming, "Come on coach, give him another chance!"
