Surah Al-Qamar 54: - (The Moon)

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

“ board that [ship] which had planks and nails..." 54:13
"And indeed We have made the Quran easy for seeking advice. So, is there one to seek advice?" 54:17

COMMENTARY: (" board that [ship] which had planks and nails..." 54:13) - The word 'Alwah' is the plural of 'Lawh' and it refers to a board or a plank. The word 'Dusur' is the plural of 'Disar' and it stands for nail. It also means a cord of fibres of the palm tree with which the planks of a ship are bound together.

("And indeed We have made the Quran easy for seeking advice. So, is there one to seek advice?" 54:17). The word 'Dhikr' in the prepositional phrase 'lidh-dhikr' has several shades to its meaning: to remember or memorize or by-heart; and to take heed of admonition and warnings. Both these meanings are equally applicable here. Allah has made it easy to memorize the Noble Qur'an. The followers of the previous scriptures were not privileged to memorize their entire book, word by word - whether Torah, Injeel or Zabur.

It is one of the privileges conferred on Muslims that He has made it easy, even for the tender-aged children, to commit the entire Qur'an to memory, word for word, without missing out a single letter. The Qur'an is preserved in the hearts of hundreds of thousands of 'Huffaaz' for the past fourteen hundred years in every age, people and their children of every level, in every region or territory of the world.

The verse could also mean that Allah has made the Qur'an so simple that just as an intellectual and knowledgeable person benefits from its contents, so does a layman, having no expertise in relevant sciences. He too can benefit from its admonition and warnings (at his own level).

Life is a Question

Life is a Question, and
We all have suggestions
As to what the answer might be

We have to look inside our hearts
Take everything apart
And begin right from the start

We need to cherish
Before we perish
To live a life
Worth living

We have to inspire
And also admire
That life has its own desires

As for the answer
To the Question of Life
That will always remain.
