The Qur’anic verses below is a rule of thumb for our daily conversations. The Jewish character is a lesson for us Muslims. They made fun of the term Ra ‘ina رَعِنَا until the original Arabic meaning “we listen” became changed to Hebrew slang of “Raa ina” or an insult to Islam and Allah. In giving the Islamic greetings they also twisted their tongues to say “as-samu alaykum” meaning “death to you” instead of “as-salamu alaykum” meaning “peace be upon you”. The usual response is “wa-alaykum” meaning “same to you”. Allah’s reprimand towards those who take pleasure in twisting their words.

 

4:46

Among the Jews are those who distort words from their [proper] usages and say, “We hear and disobey” and “Hear but be not heard” and “Ra’ina,” twisting their tongues and defaming the religion. And if they had said [instead], “We hear and obey” and “Wait for us [to understand],” it would have been better for them and more suitable. But Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few. (Surah An-Nisa’ (The Women)  سورة النساء)

2:104
O you who have believed, say not [to Allah ‘s Messenger], “Ra’ina” but say, “Unthurna” and listen. And for the disbelievers is a painful punishment. (Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) سورة البقرة)

 

Know Thyself To Know Thy Enemy..

Peace: Having the knowledge that we are our own worst enemy is the best saviour. Seeking help from Allah, the As-Salaam can cure any illness within and outside of us.

Safety: Mishaps happen due to our own carelessness and negligence. However, seeking help from Allah, the As-Salaam will ensure that any evil intentions projected upon us, we will be safeguard from them.

Perfection: The Unseen – Ghayb is seeing the Perfect Light of the Angels that is made of light whose source is Allah, the Pure Nur. This becomes possible when our inner eye of the heart, Baseerah, is unveiled.

 

Seeking the “Qalbun Salim” (soundness of heart)..

Being at peace when we have completed our prayers. Feeling safe because we have been kind to all creatures. Thinking that there is perfection in every error that has happened because of Musabab ul Asbab and the Hikmah behind them.

 

With Certainty Comes Peace..

Harun Yahya from His Book about Prophet Jesus and Hazrat Mahdi has this to say:

The life span of the community is one thing and that of the world another. Said Nursi, the greatest mujaddid of the last 1000 years, says that Muslims will remain on the true path until a command comes from Allah, and will be victorious until around 1506 with the Judgment Day probably taking place in 1545 (Allah knows the truth):

“A group from my community will remain in truth until Allah’s command.”

The abjad calculation of the clause “A group from my community…” which is 1542 (2117) implies its [the community’s] time of survival. The abjad calculation of the clause “will remain in truth” (when the gemination mark is counted) gives 1506 (2082); it indicates until that date it will continue its work of enlightenment evidently and obviously, and maybe victoriously; then until 1542 (2117) in secrecy and defeat. The abjad calculation of the clause “until Allah’s command” (when the gemination mark is counted) suggests that THE JUDGMENT DAY WILL BEFALL the unbeliever in 1545 (2120). (Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, Kastamonu Addendum, p. 33)

 

 In the Name of Allah the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful,

In the Name of Allah the Healer,

In the Name of Allah the Sustainer,

In the Name of Allah Giver of Tranquility,

In the Name of Allah, Burdens Not The Heavens And Earth, And the Hearing and Most Knowledgeable
