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

"Soon We are going to spare Ourselves for you [to reckon your deeds], 0 two heavy species! ... 55:31"

COMMENTARY: A Warning for Humans and Jinn (Soon We are going to spare Ourselves for you [to reckon your deeds], 0 two heavy species! ... 55:31) The word ‘thaqalan’ is the dual of ‘thaqal’ which denotes 'burden or load'. Thus the word ‘ath-thaqalan’ [the dual form] denotes 'the two heavy or weighty things', and signifies 'the men' and 'the Jinn' as the context shows. In Arabic, the word ‘thaqal’ refers to anything the weight or value of which is well-known. It is in this sense that the word has occurred in the following Prophetic Tradition: (Indeed I leave amongst you two weighty and valuable things ... which will continue to guide you.)

Some versions of the Tradition state that those two weighty and valuable things are: "Allah's Book and my family" and others state: "Allah's Book and my normative Sunnah [practices]". The end result of both the versions amount to the same thing because 'itrah refers to both types of family, lineal or spiritual. Therefore, it refers to all the noble Companions. The end result of the Tradition is that after the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) there are two things that will serve to guide and set aright the Muslims:

  1. the Book of Allah; and
  2. the example of the blessed Companions in all their mutual dealings and transactions. The version that uses 'itrah instead of Sunnah means the teachings of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) that reached the Muslims through the noble Companions.

Most businesses like that our credit card machines automatically print "Thank you, please come again" at the bottom of receipts. Though one guy called to ask if I could take it off.

"Sure," I said. "But do you mind my asking why?"

"It just seems inappropriate," he answered. "We're a funeral home."
