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

"A flame of fire and a smoke will be loosened against you, and you will not [be able] to defend..." 55:35

COMMENTARY: Sayyidna Ibn Abbas RA and other leading authorities on Qur'anic exegesis have said that the word 'Shuwwaz' with refers to 'flame or fire without smoke' and the word 'NuQAAS' refers to 'smoke in which there is no flame'. This verse too addresses the two species of creation, the Jinns and Humankind. It addresses them and describes how fire and smoke will be unleashed against them.

The verse could mean that after the reckoning is over, and the disbelievers are sent to the Hell, they will experience two different types of punishment. In some places there will be only fire and flame, with no smoke at all. In other places there will be only smoke and no flame or fire.

Other Qur'anic exegetes regard this verse as a supplement to the preceding one, and assign the following meaning to it: "0 Jinn and Humankind; it is not within your power to cross the bounds of the heavens. If you do attempt to escape on the Day of Resurrection, then the angels [including those guarding the Hellfire] will bring you back by directing the flames of fire and smoke. The verb 'Falaa Tantasiran' is derived from 'Intisaar' which means 'to help someone to defend him against a calamity' and thus the words 'Falaa Tantasiran' signify that the Jinns and Humankind will not be able to help each other against Divine punishment, try as they might.

*Arabic Poem By The Great Imaam Shaafi'ee Rahmatullahi-Alayhi, Translated Into An English Poem*

عفوا تعف نساءكم في المحرم
You too (Oh men!) be modest, if you wish your womenfolk to be pure,

وَ تجنبوا ما لا يليق بمسلم
And from whatever is not befitting of a Muslim, stay away from that allure.

إن الزنا دين فإن أقرضته
Verily adultery is such a debt, which if you shall pursue,

كان الوفا من اهل بيتك فاعلم...
The bitter pill of repayment, your family shall endure...

*Abdullah Ibn Abbas Panjwani*

The other day at work I ran into Bob. We chatted over lunch and he dropped a bombsell on me. "Rodney" he said, "Becky and I are going to get a divorce".

I was stunned. "Why? What happened, you two seem so happy together"
"Well" he said, "ever since we got married, my wife has tried to change me. She got me to stop drinking, smoking, running around at all hours of the night and more. She taught me how to dress well, enjoy the fine arts, gourmet cooking and how to invest in the stock market."

"Are you a little bitter because she spent so much time trying to change you?" I probed.
"Nah, I'm not bitter. Now that I'm so improved, she just isn't good enough for me."
