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

"And He raised the sky high, and has placed the scale..." 55:7

COMMENTARY: The word 'Mizan' has been interpreted in different ways. In the current verse, scholars like Mujahid, Qatadah, Suddi and others interpret it in the sense of 'justice', because that is the purpose of 'Mizan' [scale]. Other scholars have taken the word in its obvious sense of a piece of equipment used to determine the weights of people or things. This equipment could be a pair of scales, consisting of a bar with a pan or a dish at each end or it may be some modern equipment used for the purpose of measuring and weighing. The ultimate sense of this interpretation in any case is maintaining rights and establishing justice and fair play.

One Of The Most Famous Arabic Poems By Hassan Bin Thaabit Radhiallahu Anhu, Translated Into An English Poem

وَأَحسَنُ مِنكَ لَم تَرَ قَطُّ عَيني
No eye has ever seen more greatness in any human but thee,

وَأَجمَلُ مِنكَ لَم تَلِدِ النِساءُ
And no mother has ever given birth to your comparison in beauty,

خُلِقتَ مُبَرَّءً مِن كُلِّ عَيبٍ
Born, you were, free of any defect,

كَأَنَّكَ قَد خُلِقتَ كَما تَشاءُ
Seemingly like you were born, as per your request.

Abdullah Ibn Abbas Panjwani
