May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



Surah An-Najam 53: - (The Star)

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

("One of vigor. So, he stood poised, while he was on the upper horizon..."), [6].

COMMENTARY: The word Mirrah means 'strength' or 'vigour'. This is another quality of Jibraeel (AS), in that he is no weakling, but strong, mighty in power and firm, so that it may not be suspected that the devil may intercept the angel carrying the Divine revelation and snatch it away from him.

Jibraeel (AS) is so mighty in power and strength that the devil dares not come anywhere near him. The word "Istawa" means to be or become straight or to level. The verse means that when he saw Jibraeel (AS) the first time, the latter was descending from the heaven. Having descended, he sat or settled straight on the highest part of the horizon. Ufuq [horizon] is qualified by 'ALAA' [the highest part or uppermost] and it signifies that Jibraeel (AS) was shown on the uppermost horizon, [so that he could be seen clearly] because the lower part of the horizon which seems to be adjacent to the earth is normally hidden from the sight [as a result he would not have been visible to the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).

In the breeze after a hectic day
After the day’s turmoil at bay.

Children so excited to play.
After a tiring school day.

The birds returning in formation.
Swallows swooping and maneuvering in anticipation.

Birds gathering at the approach of dusk.
Making a din as if it's a must.

Clouds like a floating ship.
A scene captured on an artist’s trip.

Forgetting all your worry.
The heavens declare Allah's glory.

A couple goes for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and orders the 'Chicken Surprise'.

The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.

Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around, before the lid slams back down.

'Good grief, did you see that?' she asks her husband.

He hadn't, so she asks him to look in the pot.

He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes, looking around before it slams down. Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.

'Please sir,' says the waiter, 'what you order?'

The husband replies, 'Chicken Surprise'

'Ah! Soooo solly,' says the waiter. 'I bling you Peeking Duck by mistake.'
