Surah At-Taghabun (Loss and Gain)
This Surah is Madani, and it has 18 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

He has created the heavens and the earth with truth, and shaped your figures, and made your figures good, and to Him is the final return. [3]

COMMENTARY: (...and shaped your figures, and made your figures good...64:3) Shaping the figures of the creatures is one of the exclusive attributes of Allah, That is why Al-Musawwiru [the Shaper] is one of His attributive names. If we analyze or look carefully into the universe, there are several classes of things. Each class has several species and each species has several s e x e s. Each s e x has billions of members. No single shape ever resembles another shape. Among humankind, for instance, on account of differences of country or territory, or differences of stock and nations, there is clear distinction in the shapes and faces of individuals.

The face and shape of each individual is so amazingly unique and that it baffles the human imagination. The human face is no more than six to seven square inches, and there are uncountable faces of the same type, and yet one face does not look exactly like the other one so that distinguishing one from the other would be difficult. The present verse mentions figure-making as one of the Divine blessings and immediately thereafter it goes on to say: (and made your figures good). In the entire universe, Allah made the human shape the most beautiful. No matter how ugly a man or an individual might seem in his community, he is still beautiful in his own right, relative to the shapes of all other non-human creatures.

His eyes slept very little,
For nights were precious,
His prayers he treasured much greater.
To wake and pray in the depths of night,
Seeking forgiveness, and being nearness his Creator.

He broke his tooth for me at Uhud,
And bled for me at Ta'if.
He cried for me, tears of concern,
Just so I could have this belief.

His enemies admired his teachings,
Uniting every religion, every clan.
Till ISLAM came to every corner of the world,
Yet, indeed, he was only one man.
To own a house, or build his wealth

Was not his main priority.
To establish ISLAM was more essential,
To bring us under a Higher Authority.
Don't you want him to plea for your case?

When before ALLAH, The Judge, you stand?
Don't you wish to be around his fountain?
Burning desire to drink from his hand?
So love him more than all creation,
Our Leader, OUR Humble Prophet.

Muhammad is a mercy to all of humankind, And to me, he is MY BELOVED!

Needing to look up a phone number at a friend’s house, my teenage daughter asked for a phone book. She might as well have asked for a papyrus scroll.

“A phone book?” asked her friend.

“You know,” said my daughter. “A book with numbers in it.”

“Oh,” said her friend as it dawned on her. “You mean a math book.”
