Surah Al-Qamar 54: - (The Moon)

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

“Verily, We have created everything according to (Our) predestination.” [49]

COMMENTARY: ("Verily, We have created everything according to [Our] predestination..." 54:49). As a theological term, Qadar is used in the sense of Taqdir [Divine predetermination, predestination, preordainment, preordering or decree].

Most authorities on Tafseer, on account of some versions of Hadith, take the word Qadar here in this sense. It is recorded in Musnad of Ahmad, Sahih Muslim and Tirmidhi on the authority of Sayyidna Abu Hurairah RA that once the pagans of Quraish came to the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) debating and arguing with him on the question of Taqdir (Predestination). On that occasion this verse was revealed.

In the light of this tradition, the verse purports to say that Allah has predetermined the total sum of everything. He created everything with predestined limits before they were created. He knew everything that will occur before it occurred, and recorded everything [time and place, growth and decline] that will occur, before they occurred. Everything that occurs in this world, occurs according to the Divine Plan worked out in Pre-Eternity or Eternity-without-Beginning.

The question of Taqdir, according to Ahl-us-sunnah wal-jama'ah, is one of the affirmed and standard articles of faith in Islam. Anyone who denies it outright is an atheist or goes out of the pale Islam, and the sects that deny it by convoluted or twisted interpretation are ‘Fasiqeen’ [sinners or transgressors].

My eyes are open, but I can't see...

My eyes are open, but I can't see
I can't see the pain you inflict on me
I can't see the hurt you cause
I need to step back and pause

Open my eyes and look around
Open my my and be profound
Open my heart and let you know
That anytime I can let you go

Open my mind and clear it up
Letting you know that your time is up
My eyes are open, but I can't see
That is what you think of me

The games you play
The words you say
You really think I'm made of clay
My eyes are open, but I can't see
Your time is gone no room to stay

My eyes are open, and I did see
Everything you have done to me
Every pain you thought was gain
Every hurt you thought unfelt
Caused more harm than you will ever know

My eyes are open, and I won't show
You thought I would never let you go
It's too late now for I know
My eyes were opened, and I can see
Something that was never meant to be
