Surah Ar-Rahman (The All-Merciful)

This Surah is Madani, and it has 78 verses and 3 sections

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

"so that you should not be wrongful in weighing." [8]
"And observe the correct weight with fairness, and do not make weighing deficient." [9]

COMMENTARY: (" that you should not be wrongful in weighing..." 55:8). The earlier verse stated the creation of the scale, and this verse states the reason for its creation. The imperfect verb 'tatghaw' is derived from 'tughyaan' which stands for 'injustice'. Thus verses [7] and [8] put together mean: '[The 'mizan or scale' has been created so that you may not transgress the balance and thus practice injustice'.

("...And observe the correct weight with fairness..." 55:9). The word 'qist' literally means 'justice'. The meaning is obvious: 'And observe the weight with equity'.

Water gushing what a sight, even at night.
Water you see, can bring you to your knee.
For a glass of water you cannot repay the creator.
With a life time of worship or even greater.
He does not look at your face.
He gives by his grace.

A gnome is in the garden busily destroying some bushes when a house cat appears. "What are you?" asks the cat.

"A gnome," comes the reply. "I steal food from humans, I kill their plants, I make annoying music at night to drive them crazy, and I love mischief. And what, may I ask, are you?"

The cat replies, "Um, I’m a gnome."
