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

"Every one who lives on it (the earth) has to perish, and your Lord's Countenance will remain, full of majesty, full of honour... 55:26-27..."

COMMENTARY: ( ...full of majesty, full of honour... 55:27). In other words, the Lord is the Master of Greatness, Grandeur and Tremendousness. This is Allah's Majesty that overwhelms His creation and fills them with awe.

The Lord is also the Master of Honour, signifying that those who benefit by the great favours Allah has bestowed upon them and walk in the path of truth and righteousness will be granted more favours by the Lord of Honour. Despite being the Lord of Greatness and Majesty, Allah is not like the worldly kings and rulers who would not pay attention to others or the indigent people. He grants their petition and invocation.

The next verse [to be analysed in the forthcoming paragraph] bears testimony to this interpretation. The current phrase under discussion constitutes one of those special Attributes of Allah which if a suppliant were to invoke before calling upon Allah for help, protection, inspiration and a host of other things, the supplication will be readily granted as recorded in Tirmidhi, Nasa'i and Musnad of Ahmad.

Ibn 'Amir RA has transmitted that the Messenger of Allah said: (Persist [in invoking Allah] with 'O Lord of Majesty and Honour'." The imperative ‘alizzu’ is derived from the infinitive ‘ilzaz’ which means 'to continue firmly in some course of action'. [Mazhari]

When a friend or family member quarrels with you .
Its a cry for love and attention .
Don't deny him the love and attention he craves .
Its the diet of our souls , we can share with each other .

Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whosoever desires to have expansion in his sustenance and a prolonged life, should treat his relatives with kindness.” (Bukhari & Muslim)

Groaner: Sneezing and Sniffling

A little boy got a cold at school one day. He came home sneezing and sniffling, and his mother watched him with a knowing eye. Later that day, he was playing with his older sister when his mother called him into the kitchen. She was an old-fashioned lady, and believed in some of the older methods of treating illnesses. "Son, I know you're not feeling very good," she began. "Tomorrow for breakfast, don't eat your normal sugary cereal. I'll allow you to have some LIFE cereal after you eat a bowl of oatmeal, though. See, it's right here on the shelf," she pointed.

"Now, afterwards, I want you to have your older sister make you some broth from that ground liver we have in the fridge." Seeing the face he made, she added, "and then you can have some of the leftover sweet tea."

After the little boy came out of the kitchen, his older sister curiously asked, "What did she want?" He promptly replied, "She just gave me the rights to LIFE, liver tea, and proper tea!"
