Tafsir Surah al Rahman: The Ecosystem of Space, The Earth and Why Mankind Is Imbalanced

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Surah Ar-Rahman: (Allah) Most Gracious! (1) It is He Who has taught the Qur’an. (2) created man: (3) and taught him speech (and Intelligence) (4) The sun and the moon follow (defined) courses (in space); (5) And the Stars and the trees are in obediance. (6) And the Firmament (space) He has (formed and) raised high, and set up its balance, (7) In order that ye may not transgress (due) balance (on earth). (8) So establish measure with justice and fall not short in the balance. (9)

Allah, al Rahman, in the first verses tied three topics together, He tied the knowledge that is in the Quran with the creation of man, and then the speech He (swt) taught him. The knowledge in the Quran, is related to the creation of man in how man is given knowledge by Allah, which is through revelation and inspiration received in man’s heart, this is related to his speech because man speaks according to what is placed in his heart, so in Allah teaching and inspiring the Quran He is teaching man new speech. When we look at how these things work in the human body, as Imam Malik said, Knowledge is a light placed in the heart by Allah, this is a physiological statement, Allah gives man knowledge according to what He is doing in life, so this light is the source of speech taught to man by Allah, (we have explained in detail in our other works how the body uses light through the nervous system of the heart and brain).

The sun and the moon and the path they are on is tied to all of this because Allah inspires man’s self through the influence of these celestial bodies in space on earths atmosphere, this is a process that begins at the subatomic level because the sun and moon exert electro-magnetic fields on our planet which affect the planet from the quantum level, ultimately they inspire and influence both man and what he speaks because our ecosystem is part of a bigger picture.

By simile the trees of earth are numerous and countless like the stars, this is there relationship in this picture that Allah is painting for us, in this verse Allah is mentioning the most distant thing from us in space and the closest thing to us on earth in relation to the context of the surah, this is because He is drawing a picture of how the ecosystem of outer space and the ecosystem on earth are connected through quantum fields like the electro-magnetic forces of the sun hitting the earth, all these objects are influencing each other and ultimately us.

Assalamu Alaikum,

The Islamic Journal is a unique Journal in that it doesn’t follow the usual methods of other academic journals. It came about as a result of a book I was writing called “The Knowledge Behind The Terminology and Concepts in Tassawwuf and It’s Origin”, the title is as descriptive as possible because the book was written in the same style as classical islamic texts, a single document without any chapter’s since they were a later invention which hindered the flow of the book.

That book looked into the Islamic science of Ihsan, Human perfection, were it’s terminology and concepts came from, what they mean and the knowledge and science they were based on. I started researching the subject some five or so years ago and it resulted in a book whose current length is over 300,000 words, not counting research notes.

Towards the end of the book I realized that the scientific subjects, at the heart of Islam, needed to be looked into further because i had learned some interesting things which needed to be investigated, so the book was put on hold as i looked at more research papers to gain deeper knowledge.

The work was done entirely feesabililah, and because of that I wanted to share what I already understood rather than having it sitting their, so i decided to write a separate book with a smaller scope entitled “Who Was al Khidr”, the prophet Khidr (ra) was the perfect role model for the topic because his story in the Quran is the essence of what a muslim is trying to achieve. The book was about how man gains knowledge from the world around him through his physiology (mans body and senses), essentially how Maarifa (gnosis) works from it’s scientific aspects, a subject at the heart of this Journal but not it’s entire scope.

The original book was the heart of all my research and this second book represented it’s end product, but i felt it was to technical for many people so this resulted in me writing three introductory works on the subject to ease people into it’s context, the first was “Human Physiology and It’s Relationship To Baraka”, “What is The Unseen World and Where Is It: Explaining The Technical Terminology Of The Scholars”, and “How Is Allah The Light Of The Heavens and The Earth”.

Al-Hasan narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said:

“Who will take these statements from me, so that he may act upon them, or teach one who will act upon them?” So Abu Hurairah said: “I said: ‘I shall O Messenger of Allah!’ So he (s.a.w) took my hand and enumerated five (things), he said: “Be on guard against the unlawful and you shall be the most worshiping among the people, be satisfied with what Allah has alloted for you and you shall be the richest of the people, be kind to your neighbor and you shall be a believer, love for the people what you love for yourself and you shall be a Muslim. And do not laugh too much, for indeed increased laughter kills the heart.”(Da’if)

Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said:

“Race to do works against seven. Are you waiting but for overwhelming poverty, or distracting richness, or debilitating illness, or babbling senility, or sudden death, or the Dajjal, so that hidden evil is what is awaited, or the Hour? The Hour is more calamitous and more bitter.” (Daif)
