The Knot

Salamualaykum,

Here is post number 7 in the Divine Speech Series. Talking about the word ibram in Arabic and how it is used in Surah Az-Zukhruf.

Bismillah…

Allah says in the Quran:

“Or have they plotted some plan? Then We too are planning.” [43:79]

  1. Ibram–To double up a chord and twist it
  2. When you tie two beams together. What do you do? Rope, double, twist, coil.
  3. Every part of process is two times. Why? Because the intention is for it to remain that way forever.

Ensured and reinsured—ibram

  1. Intention–it should never be undone (the knot)
  2. Allah is saying: Have they made that decision (disbelief) that they have tied the rope that way (intention of never undoing). Then in response—Allah says: If they have tied their rope, We have tied our rope also…Allah has sealed their fate.
  3. Who did the first act? They themselves tied their rope first.
  4. When Allah ties His rope–a noun is used—which implies a permanent condition. A noun is permanent while verb is temporary.
  5. Verb is used by the disbelievers–temporary (on the Last Day, they will ask if they can untie their rope).
  6. You’ll go back on it, but Allah won’t.
  7. SUBHANALLAH!
