Tafseer Surah Ar Rahman💖
From the Bayan of:
Hazrat Shaykh Peer Zulfiqar Ahmad Naqshbandi(db). 🔅
🔅فباي الاء ربكما تكذيان
🌟Allah swt has bestowed upon us so many blessings.
If Allah had not given us sight we would be blind, if we couldn't hear we would be deaf. If He had not given us water we would be thirsty. We wouldn't have shelter had He not given us houses. We would have been childless if He had not blessed us with children.
🔅We would have been ill if we had no health. If He had not given us wealth we would be beggars. If He had not honored us we would have been humiliated. The life of status that we are living today is becuase of Allah's generosity and compassion.
🌟خلق الانسان من صلصال كالفخار
Allah swt created man from a soil that makes sound like potsherd.
🌟و خلق الانسان من مارج من نار
And Allah swt created jinn kind from the embers of fire.
Man is from dust and jinn from fire.
🌟فباي الاء ربكم تكذبان
O jinn and mankind how many of the blessings of your Lord will you deny
🌟رب المشرقين و رب المغربين
Allah is the Lord of both East and the both west.
🔅Generally people think there is 1 East and 1 West but the Sun rises from one place in the winter time and from one place in the summer time, therefore the mention of two East and two West.
🔅At one place Allah swt says that, Allah is the Lord of all the easts and all the Wests.
🔅Scientists say that Earth is 23 degrees tilted on its axis. The sun rises from a different place everyday, so 365 easts and 365 Wests, therefore it was said so.
🌟مرج البحرين يلتقين بينهما برزج لا يبغين
Allah made two seas flow by joining them together and there is separation between them.
🔅It's Allah's greatness that the water of one sea is sweet and of the other is salty but they don't mix up.
They both flow together from chittagong to arkan, even in swat there are two seas whose water flow together without mixing.
🔅Indian ocean and Atlantic ocean, which is in Cape town, South Africa, also meet. The water of Atlantic ocean is so cold that we can't put our hand in it and the water of Indian ocean is hot and they don't mix with each other.
🌟 يخرج منهما اللولو والمرجان
🔅Lulu means pearl and marjaan means the coral stone, they are both precious. Women use them in their jewelry and hakeem's in their medicines.
🔅They are found at a place where the sweet and bitter waters meet
🔅اللولو has been mentioned in the holy Qur'an at four places. It is not a stone but a living thing. Ruby, diamond etc are stones but this is made from a living thing
🔅Shells are living organisms, there are two parts to it, inside it lives a molluscs that makes the Pearl.
🔅We used to listen during the childhood that shells are mani and when the rain water goes in it they turn into pearls but it's not like that. The shell has two parts and the molluscs live on that.
When some water, dust or anything if it enters this shell, the defense mechanism starts working to remove the water. It keeps removing water and more water comes in, this water is so precious that it turns to a Pearl.
🔅The silk cloth is made from the spit of silk worm. From the spit of honey bee comes honey and from the spit of this mollusc comes the Pearl.
It takes around 50-100 years for a pearl to form in a shell but man understood this mechanism and has started doing it himself making a business out of it.
People make ponds in their houses and leave shells in them, they put some dirt or other particles in it and in about 3 years a Pearl is formed.
🔅The price of most precious of pearls is about 100 million dollars.
With that much money one can buy the entire city and this small Pearl is that precious.
🔅Pearls are of 3 types: natural, cultured and imitation.
Imitation is from plastic but the surface shines. I once bought a tasbeeh and asked the shopkeeper how do I know if this is even Pearl or not. He took out a lighter and kept the pearls on it but nothing happened to them. So he said the sign of natural pearl is that it doesn't change on lighting it.
🔅A Pearl is 100% calcium carbonate.
🔅Few things of the Pearl make it more expensive.
🔅It's size: the pearls are generally of the size of 5-7mm
🔅Shape.: They come in different shapes round, semi round, oval, circle, drop.
🔅Color: They also come in different colors white, pink, purple, blue, black, golden, Brown, silver etc.
🔅Mostly the Pearl is looked for its shine and accordingly the price is set. Today scientists have made special colleges to make pearls.
🌟وله الجوار المنشءت في البحر كالاعلام
🔅جوار is the plural of جاري
It means a ship.
When a ship sails in the sea it seems like a mountain is sailing. Today the ships are very big.
The ships that carry oil are 400 km long and can carry tins of 5000 meters.
Naval ships are made similarly.
Right now the biggest naval ship in America have the capacity for 75 aeroplanes.
🔅The ship titanic that was made was designed such that they claimed it will never sink. It collided with an ice mountain and broke into two pieces.
🔅Allah swt shattered their pride to pieces.
🔅How did this ship sink?
For a ship to save itself from sinking it's engine has to work constantly beside the waves keep coming in a sea and oceans so the captain keeps the ship straight. If the ship is straight it will go up and down but will not sink even if it's a big wave. But when the engine stops working the ship will sink and that was the reason for titanic to sink too.
🔅And it was not any big ice mountain that it collided with ,but ice which is a piece of water which made the ship made of iron to sink.
🔅It is Allah's splendor that such big ships sail and man takes benefit from it.
🌟فباي الاء ربكم تكذبان
🔅لا بشيء من نعمك ربنا نكذب فلك الحمد
🔅O Allah we do not deny any of your favors and all praise is for you.
