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: This verse speaks of sending down 'the Balance' like 'the Book'. The notion of the Book coming down from the heaven and reaching the prophets through the agency of the angels is quite understandable. But it is not clear what it means for the Balance to come down. Ruhul Ma'aani, Mazhari and others have explained that 'the coming down of Balance' refers to the Divine laws that were revealed pertaining to the use of the Balance and administration of justice. Qurtubi explains that it was the Book that was sent down, the Balance has been merely appended to the same verb but connoting the sense of inventing and placing. This is quite common in the Arabic language and literature. Thus this sentence in full will read as follows: "We sent down the Book and placed the Scale."

We are all on a journey of some kind.
Life takes us from place to place.
To be on a journey means to be constantly moving.
We do however make some stops along the way….

Sometimes we stop for a little while and familiarize ourselves with the area…
Get to know the people around.
And sometimes we linger because we are afraid of the next destination.
We cannot stay too long otherwise we will become grounded and forget about moving along.

Our hopes and dreams sends us on our journey and pushes us to move along.
There are many journeys in this life …
Some are good and some are bad
Some are happy and some are sad

Sometimes we postpone and hope that there will be better prospects
And sometimes we procrastinate because we are comfortable where we find ourselves
Wherever your destination and however long your journey will be is a mystery
All we can do is continue on our journeys and believe that it will take us where are meant to be.
