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

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

"It is surely the Noble Quran (recorded already) in a protected book [i.e. the Preserved Tablet] that is not touched except by the purified ones [the angels]..." 56:79

COMMENTARY: Some of the commentators maintain that 'Qur'an refers to the copy of the Noble Book that is in our hands, and the referent of the word 'Mutahharoon' ('purified ones) are people free from minor impurities and major impurities. Minor impurity means to be without Wudhu and minor impurities may be cleansed by making Wudhu or Tayammum [cleaning with dust]. Major impurities refers to the state of impurity which is caused by i n t e r course, l u s t ful discharge during the sleep, and menstrual and postpartum discharges. Ghusl (having a bath) is the only means of achieving purity from this state. This interpretation is placed on the text by 'Ata RA', Taus RA, Salim RA and Muhammad Baqir RA.

In this case, although the verse "that is not touched except by the purified ones..." 56:79) is a declarative sentence, it is in fact used in the sense of prohibiting human beings to touch the Qur'an without being free from the minor and major impurities: The person who wishes to touch the Qur'an needs to be purified of the visible as well as the invisible impurities by taking Wudhu', Tayammum or Ghusl, as required. Qurtubi and Mazhari prefer this interpretation.

Beautiful Piece Of Advice From The Brilliant تعليم المتعلم (Ta'leemul Muta'allim) Kitaab Translated Into An English Poem...

(قال الشيخ الإمام أبو نصر الصفار الأنصاري:)
(The pious elder and leader, Abu-Nasr Assaffarul-Ansaari has said:)

يا نفس، يا نفس، لا ترخي عن العمل في البر و العدل و الإحسان في مهل،
Oh dear soul, my precious soul, never delay in any act of goodness, justice, and virtue,

فكل ذي عمل في الخير مغتبط،
For the performer of good deeds, only gratification will brew,

وفي بلاء و شوم كل ذي كسل.
And for the lazy, only difficulties and misfortune will accrue.

(Abdullah Panjwani)
