Surah An-Najam 53: - (The Star)

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

"It is taught to him by one [angel] of strong faculties..." 53:5

COMMENTARY: Many noble Companions, and other leading commentators, take these verses to refer to the event when the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) saw the noble angel Jibra'il (AS) in his original shape. According to them, (one of strong faculties), and other qualities and acts mentioned in these verses are the qualities of Jibrail (AS). There are many factors in support of this interpretation. Historically, Surah An-Najm is one of the very early Surahs and, according to Sayyidna 'Abdullah Ibn Masud RA, this is the first Surah the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) recited in public in the Sacred city of Makkah.

There is a Hadeeth recorded in the Musnad of Ahmad, the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) himself interprets these verses that they relate to seeing Jibra'il (AS).

Masrooq reports from Sha'bi. Masrooq said: "One day I asked Sayyidah A'ishah RA: 'Did Allah not say: 'And indeed he saw him in the clear horizon' and indeed he saw him another time' she replied: 'I was the first among the Ummah to ask the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) about it.' He said: 'That was Jibra'il. He only saw him twice in his actual and real figure. He saw Jibra'il descend from heaven to earth, and he was so huge that he covered the entire horizon between the sky and the earth." (Ibn-Kathb)

The Eye of Discernment

The eye looks with discrimination
The heart looks with compassion
The ego looks for its own satisfaction
The higher self looks, with silent observation
What you cannot see, is your indiscretion

Race to the End

Last year I entered a marathon. The race started and immediately I was the last of the runners. It was embarrassing.

The guy who was in front of me, second to last, was making fun of me. He said, "Hey buddy, how does it feel to be last?"

I replied, "You really want to know?"

Then I dropped out of the race.
