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

"He has created man from dry clay, ringing like pottery,” [55:14]
"And He created Jaann [the father of the Jinns] from a smokeless flame of fire..." [55:15]
"He is the Lord of both points of sunrise and both points of sunset..." [55:17]

COMMENTARY: The word 'Jaan', refers to the class of beings called 'jinn'. The word 'Maarij' refers to the 'smokeless flame of fire'. The major element in the creation of jinn is the smokeless flame of fire, just as the major element in the creation of man is dry sounding clay.

Allah is the Lord of the Two Points of Sunrise and the Two Points of Sunset:

("He is the Lord of both points of sunrise and both points of sunset..." 55:17)
The sun rises at different cardinal points in the east in winter and in summer: Thus we have the two easts [mashriqain]. Similarly, the sun sets at different cardinal points in the west in winter and summer: Thus we have two wests [maghribain].

Outside he acts like he gives his life for his spouse…

4 extra large eggs, separated. 125 ml castor sugar (105 g). 60 ml Snowflake self-raising flour (35 g). 60 ml cocoa powder (25 g). Castor sugar for rolling.

Beat egg yolks and castor sugar until light and pale. Sift flour and cocoa powder and add to egg mixture, beating well. Beat egg whites until soft-peak stage and fold in with a metal spoon. Spread in a lined and greased 23 cm x 32 cm Swiss roll tin. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 10 12 minutes. Remove from oven and leave to cool slightly. Turn out onto a clean, dry tea towel sprinkled well with castor sugar. Trim edges to ensure rolling without breaking. Remove paper carefully and roll it up with the sugared cloth. Leave it for about 5 minutes, then unroll and leave it to cool further.

For filling
Beat cream and sugar until thickened. Spread over the Swiss roll and sprinkle peppermint crisp over it. Roll up.
