Surah An-Najam 53: - (The Star)

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

("Then he drew near, and came down..."), [8]
("So, as he was at a distance between two bows (joined together), rather even nearer..." [9]


("Then he drew near and came down..." 53s). The word 'Danaa' means to draw near and 'Tadalla' means to hang or to come down.

The verse means that Jibra'il AS drew nearby coming down.

("So, as he was at a distance between two bows (joined together), rather even nearer..." 53:9). The noun 'Qaaba' refers to the distance between the curved handle of a bow and the tight chord that releases arrows. This distance is estimated about the length of one hand. The expression 'Qaaba Qawsain' is based on an ancient Arab custom, according to which when two persons pledged themselves to firm friendship, each one of them would turn the wooden part of their bows towards themselves, but they would turn the chord part towards the other. In this way when the chords of their bows were joined together, this used to be regarded as the proclamation of proximity, love and affection at the time of which the distance between the two persons would be two bows' length - approximately the length of two arms or one cubit.

The expression 'Aw Adna' ('rather even nearer') signifies that the relationship of closeness was no ordinary one, it in fact was more intimate than could be conceived. The reason for the mention of such intimacy with Jibraeel AS in the above verses is to confirm that the revelation which he delivered is indubitably and truly from Allah, and he heard it with absolute accuracy in every detail: There is no room for any doubt in this. This closeness and intimacy further allays the suspicion that the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) might have not recognized Jibra'il and that the devil might interfere.

Speaking a good word is a Sadaqah
So is removing an obstacle from the path
Many a person shall ALLAH reward
For it extinguishes THE ALMIGHTY’s wrath

Al-Ghazzali said, “ALLAH forgave me and granted me Jannah!”
“Was it on account of your books or your good deeds?”
“I allowed a fly to sip moisture from my ink while writing!”

Success is for him whose mercy exceeds

Three doctors are in a duck blind and a bird flies overhead. The general practitioner looks at it and says, "Looks like a duck, flies like a duck ... it's probably a duck." He shoots at it but misses, and the bird flies away.

The next bird flies overhead, and the pathologist looks at it, then looks through the pages of a bird manual and says, "Hmmmm ... green wings, yellow bill, quacking sound ... might be a duck." He raises his gun to shoot it, but the bird is long gone.

A third bird flies over. The surgeon raises his gun and shoots almost without looking, brings the bird down, and turns to the pathologist and says, "Go see if that was a duck."
