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 observe the correct weight with fairness, and do not make weighing deficient." 55:09
"And the earth is placed by Him for the creatures..." 55:10

COMMENTARY: ("and do not make weighing deficient..." 55:9). The word 'Khusr' means 'to skimp or make deficient'. The opening part of verse [9] was the positive aspect of the injunction, and the concluding part is its negative aspect, in that it is unlawful to fall short of measure or weight.

The two parts, positive and negative, put together the verse as a whole means 'Do not cheat in weights and measures, but rather observe justice and fairness'.

("And the earth is placed by Him for creatures..." 55:10). The word 'Anaam' refers to all the creatures that are on the surface of the earth. Baidhawi translates the word as 'everything having a soul'. Evidently, the word 'Anaam' in the verse refers to humankind and the jinn, because only these two species of Allah's creation are obligated to observe the precepts of Shari'ah. Furthermore, they are addressed throughout the Surah. For instance in the refrain verse (So, [0 mankind and Jinn,] which of the bounties of your, Lord will you deny?..." 55:13)

First impressions are lasting impressions.
imprinted on the mind, which always bind.
I remember the sights and sounds of the place of my birth
Always happy and full of mirth
The familiar meadows, mountains and valleys.
The nearby narrow alleys.
The sound of the passing train which lulled me to sleep.
Oblivious to the train were the grazing sheep.
The distant sound of barking dogs and crowing cocks in the early morn.
In my memory began to dawn.
the expanse under the starry sky,
Not like the city, with buildings so high.
A strong urge to return, like salmon migrating.
Unlike bears in their den, hibernating.

While trying to explain to our six-year-old daughter how much technology had changed, my husband pointed to our brand-new desktop computer and told her that when he was in college, a computer with the same amount of power would have been the size of a house.

Wide-eyed, our daughter asked, "How big was the mouse?"
