Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

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

"So, I swear by the setting places of the stars..." 56:75

COMMENTARY: The preceding verses put forward rational arguments, in support of life after death, by inviting attention to Allah's infinite power. The current verses are meant to prove this fact by giving an authoritative reference, that is, the Quran.

Allah swears to the Greatness of the Quran... ("So, I swear by the setting places of the stars..." 56:75).

The word 'Mawaaqi' is the plural of 'Mawq' and refers to the points where or times when the stars set. Here, like in Surah An-Najm "By the star when it goes down to set, [l]", the oath of stars is qualified by their setting-time. The wisdom underlying this is that when the stars set, their function seems to have been cut off from the horizon, and we witness effects of their vanishing. This is the proof of their perishability and dependence on Divine power.

We all deserve to be loved
To be cared for
To be free
To be treated with respect

To be prioritized
And not always criticized
To be celebrated
And appreciated

We all deserve to be wanted
To be spoiled
We all deserve to have a voice
To say what we feel

We all deserve to have some fun
To run wild and play in the sun
Why do we need to feel like objects
And toys for people with no concern

We all deserve what is meant for us
To have what is important
To enjoy being human
And be amazing

“You mean, hysterical,” said the doctor.

“No, historical. She starts digging up my past.”
