Suratal A'raaf

We saw so far the issue of leadership was emphasized through out the Surahs before. And that this a topic the Quran focuses on. The reason against is the means to submit to God is the most important subject when discussing the issue of submission and how one ought to be guided.

In Suratal Baqara God being the Master that brings out of darkness to the light, to the emphasis on his true handhold was emphasized as his rope in Suratal Auli-Imran and the issue of Authority with chosen families was also emphasized with regard to his rope and the interpretation of God's holy books.

In Suratal Maaeeda it was emphasized that God is our true Master as well as his Messenger and group of believers. That group is obviously the Ulil-Amr we been commanded to obey.

We saw that the next Surah emphasized the issue of not taking the religion as a play thing as many people did in the past, and as Surat Al Maeeda also emphasized on,  in which it emphasized that we shouldn't take aside from God as Wali, as Mawla, and as Hakim.   These verses interpret one another, and so we see the issue of leadership is tied with the Mastery of God upon his creation. We saw the issue was not that people aren't provided evidence but rather people don't accept proofs and evidence often, as the case was with the people of Mohammad.

This Surah (Suratal A'raaf) will be re-emphasize on a lot that has been discussed already but with a new focus at hand and new dimensions to the issue. Let us begin to see the majestic words about Leadership in this Surah.


1. Emphasis on not taking an Authority other then God!


It tells us to follow what has been revealed from God and than emphasizes with regard to that, and do no take Authorities aside from God.

We see this an issue people don't reflect upon and don't remember.

2. The story of Adam


We are brought back to the story of Adam.  Something to note here, is that Iblis showed arrogancy towards Adam, and vied for the issue of leadership and would not out of humbleness submit to God.

Then not only that, but that he deceived Adam and his wife with regards to the reason as to why God advised or commanded not to go towards the tree.

So he was a deceiver who made himself as if he was a sincere wisher.

The question that arises, how do we tell deceivers from honest guides? The answer is the same answer as before, we need God to manifest them and appoint them for us!

3. The porition that took Devils as Authorities/Guardians


A portion thought they were guided but in reality were taking Devils as Authorities and Guardians. The Quran is showing an inward dimension to the world, where, the evil darkness seeks to mislead humanity through army of devils among human and jinn.

4. Those who deny God's signs and show arrogancy towards them.


This links with issue with pride towards God's signs with what Iblis showed to Adam. Indeed the doors of heaven will never be opened for such people.

5. A summary of what occurred to Messengers.


There is a summary that Messengers were denied, and that emphasized their people didn't like those who sincerely advise, and it emphasized "Those who reject Shuayb...." showing that recognizing such a person was rejecting Ayatallah. We saw in the Surah before it was emphasizing for they do not deny you (o Mohammad) but rather the disbelievers reject the signs of God and guidance to God.



6. We did not find most of them fulfilling their covenant.


Most people were found to be trangressors and not fulfilling the covenant.


7. We return to our Lord.


To reject Pharaoh's attempt to regain his authority, the sorcerers said, we return to our Lord.  This is important perspective, because at the end the true Authority is God who we return to and such they stook to manifesting the truth that Moses manifested and not confuse the people.


8. Aftermath of being saved.


The trial of being grateful after being saved is something bani-Israel was tested with. They turned ungrateful and began to associate with God when Moses was gone and they were left under the Leadership of Aaron.


9. The believers - follow the Prophet and the light down brought with him.



The context of the light brought down is important. The next verses will show what this means.

10. And from the people Moses was a ummatan that guided by the truth.


Ummatan can be translated as people but alternative theme which we see emphasized later with "Abraham was an ummatan" is that it means they were a way. Indeed this is clarifying what is meant by light, and light, way, and Guides are uniting together now.

11. And we divided them in twelve portions/grandchildren as ways....


It seems this another verse that Shatain want us to pass away by heedless and not reflect about. The words are often translated as tribes and people but that has no guidance pertaining to us. Furthermore this type of tribal division is meaningless.

Instead of referring to people of Moses it can refer to that which was made a way to guide by the truth. That they were divide in twelve portions or perhaps it is saying they all branched off one grandfather, but it can mean portion as well. That this way towards God was split in twelve portions all being courses/ways to God themselves. And then it reminds of the split of the twelve rivers which emphasized each people knew their drinking place and hence the Twelve Captains of the covenant of Moses were the suppose to the source of knowledge and guidance.

This is all flowing to respect to the light brought down and hence, we see another major emphasis, that the successors of our Prophet as well is Twelve.

The door then is emphasized on as well and so we are reminded of the covenant of Moses, that this was the door, and it was indeed split in twelve doors. They were in reality one way towards God but as well split in twelve portions as ways to God.

Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.

12. And from who he has created.

Allah [swt] says from who he created likewise are there a way who they all guide by the truth. And indeed the straight path has always been through people that ought to be followed.

The signs and the issue of the beauty of God's  holy names is tied with this issue, and blindness by hell is also tied to the issue.

Indeed it's the evil of hell in people that make them deny and turn against such signs of God.  These people are signs of God and we saw that ealier in the Surah before it was emphasized that they don't deny Mohammad but deny the signs of God.

Indeed these people can be accept as people and defended as people, but the true love towards them and appreciation comes through accepting them as ways towards God. And the pathway to God has always been one and the same, though, God splits it through time,  one chosen family after another,  one founder split by twelve Captains.

This has been the way of God!


13. Emphasis on follow


Indeed who ought to be followed a leader from God, and the verses emphasized through out one meaning of follow, if we are consistent we see there is a people who ought to be followed that were with Mohammad. This flows well with the light brought down with Mohammad, the talk of the path/door in people of Moses being split into twelve divisions/poritions ways....while being one way.

This flows well that the issue of guidance clarified in this Surah.

Those who recognize the beauty of God and are in love with God will follow those appointed as the way towards God and who are each ways to God themselves, spliting the issue of the way to God through the course of time.

Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.

14. Unseen light of Mohammad.

Indeed one of the revelations emphasized in this Surah, was that they looked at Mohammad but didn't perceive him truly and were blind.

We saw earlier there was discussion about men on the a'araaf that would be recognized by their signs. Indeed these people were on the day of judgment recognizing people by their signs and were recognized by their signs.

Mohammad was the light out of the darkness, a star in the darkest darkest night, a light giving lamp.

But they were blind.

15. Mohammad's name in the Torah and Gospel


Despite Mohammad being found in the Torah and Gospel of many of the people of the book in that Area,  the people didn't believe. Today, his name whether found therein or not, is not among the clearest of issues.

However, the Quran emphasized with that before that to God belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. Reminding of the true King and who decides who inherits the land and often destroys destructive people who see themselves as super powers but forget God is the super power.

This is saying, indeed, just as Moses is sent to Pharaoh, Mohammad is sent to all humanity and the Pharaohs everywhere will be destroyed.

Then it reminds of the successors of Moses that guided by the truth and establish justice by it.

Indeed Mohammad name whether in the Bible today or not, will not make people believe in him. It's perceiving the light brought down with him, the light of the Mastership of God through his chosen ones, that will make people understand the need guidance.

The division into twelve is saying these who were the way to God - they were all representing each other,  each of them represented another twelve (ie. Moses and the other Captains). Moses also came with making way and representing these twelve Captains.

The light brought down with him is thus divided in twelve portions, ways towards God and now we see the emphasis of the twelve rivers and each people knowing their drinking place.

The name of Mohammad although in Quran is not going to make people of the book believe in him, whether, his name is found in Gospel or Torah today, will not make people believe in him, it's coming with a humble heart in search of God's proofs and signs that will make people believe in him.

It's knowing the necessity of God as King who the whole world belongs to, and each land is his, that we will recognize the need of representative as the true king who rules among us by the light.

Mohammad was the light brought down, but people didn't perceive him as he was, although, his light is essentially the balanced beauty of God's Holy Exalted Names brought down.

The Guides like wise are also that beauty.

It's one reason why blindness to them is essentially blindness to God.

We saw also that devils were connected to people and misguiding their thoughts and inspiring them with unclean states.

It says whoever God misguided, you will not find for him a guide. In other words, despite God creating a people who guide by truth, such people would have no guide.

On the other hand, whoever was to be guided, would be guided by the Guide of time.

And this links it to the issue. Many verses talk about who God misguides you will not for him a helper or guide. True help is from God and pertains to success that is everlasting.

While the devils of Jinn and humans helped one another against the light, they end only destroyed themselves.  They benefited not and no honor was gained for them.

We see that there is a large portion of creation, whether Mohammad and his family/successors, call people to the guidance, they will not follow Mohammad and his family.

Indeed for certain, even if for the sake of argument not Mohammad and his family, there is from who God has created a way/course to God that guide by truth and establish justice by it.

There is no doubt. The Quran is arguing it is for God to show these people, lest, you end up following deceivers and devils who wish to destroy rather then take God as the Sole Authority.

Going back to the beginning of the Surah, we are to follow what God has revealed and brought down, and not follow other then it authorities, lest we succumb to the tricks of deceivers as Adam was deceived.

Indeed the dark one and his forces see us whence we see them not.  God took it upon himself to manifest the righteous through Leaders he appoints and manifest the way through appointing people who are the way.

After the founder, the way to God are those who guide by the truth, and he split them into portions or grandchildren linking back to one root, and he made each of them ways to God who represented the other twelve ways.

And they were the door to God to be entered in prostration, and the mountain taken over them represented their authority, and the book calls to them while they call to the book.

Mohammad (s) and his twelve successors (a) are indeed that way of God that represents the beauty of God's reaching out to us and who manifest God in the most beautiful way by which we are to glorify God and come towards God.

Blindness to these signs of God is blindness to the reminder, while love of them will remind us of what God has been saying to humanity from the beginning to the end.

Suratal Anfaal.


In the Surah before, the issue of following the Prophet was emphasized on. And we come to the root of the light of the Prophets. They are courageous Lions of God who stand up against the Oppressors and lead people towards the light by calling people to help God's cause and help the believers, and help God's Guardian Master on earth.

1. Courage and God's light and heaven and life.


Indeed it can be seen in moments when they are tested with most courage, that unseen forces came down.  Indeed the highest sky in the created world is Mohammad while the Highest Reality is God.

Mohammad (pbuh&hf) was the father of raining help by which the believers were purified from Shatain and his forces, and by which he kept away the unclean thoughts in battle from Iblis forces.  The Angels are helpers in the sense they help connect people with the help of God which was Mohammad (pbuh&hf) in this Surah.   

At the end, the light emanates from God, and it's by his permission, so it was not the believers who slew but God slew.

Indeed the Messenger calls them to what gives them life, and the water the Angels descended was from him,  and was linking the believers to him.

They then slew with God's Name and were given life from God's Name, mainly, Mohammad.

2. Whatever they gained a 1/5 of it belonged to God, the Messenger, and the possessors of kinship....


Indeed it was in light of that saying, your courage and victory, emantated from God and his Messenger through Angels that helped you, that indeed you should feel obligated at the very least, to give 1/5th of what you gain in booty from these battles to God and his Messenger.

But we see as well,  those who possess Kinship are included here.  The question is this referring to all of bani-hashim? Or is it referring to specifically chosen members who are his truly family.

The context as well as reason show it refers to a higher kinship. These people in the place are mention, represent God and the Messenger.

As we see earlier, the Captains, each of them represent Twelve Captains associated with them.  In this case, it doesn't make sense to distribute the Khums during the time to all of bani-hashim.

Indeed this is saying indeed those who the khums will belong to, and who the Authority will belong to, and who the Angels will connect you to, making you see the tranquility from God by your hearts in him, are from his family, one after another.

3. Prepare what you can of power.


Indeed the believers were suppose to prepare what they can of power against the enemies of the light, for their time and times to follow.

Indeed this flows well with the mention of Thul-Qurba.

4. The ending with Ulil-Arhamy.


Indeed we been told that the closest and most right to Abraham were those who followed him. We saw emphasis on the tranquility of God carried by the Angels with Talut and the family of Moses and Aaron.

We see emphasis of chosen families who belong to each other in ways people don't by normal blood.

Why does Quran remind of such relationship here in the ending? Why remind here of those who possess womb relationship to one another, that some have more right to others at the end.

Surely this is reminding us of the family of Mohammad, who the Khums verse also reminded of.

At the end they are reminded, because the light of the leadership of God in this Surah, emphasizing on the inspiration and tranquility and blessed water brought down on believers,  is no doubt  suppose to continue after Mohammad (pbuh&hf) and those who try to cut off the family of Mohammad from him with regards to this light and leadership - they at the end are those who the Quran shows listen but don't listen, and who have dead hearts.

They are the worst and most hated in the eyes of God.

Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.

Suratal Tawba

A battle cry like no other, Suratal Tawba shows the nature of God inspiring humans to show courage and to face the enemies that strive to put out God's light forcefully to the extent they fight the believers and seek to oppress them, and take their blood lightly.

1. Allah is most deserving that he should be feared.


Indeed this was a theme throughout Quran, that people ought to fear God, and not for people. This is closely tied to the issue of his Mastership, and hence if people fear God, they will obey and help his Guardian Master on earth.

2. The encouragement to strive in God's way.


The Quran is encouraging to strive in God's way. We see a manifest encouragement to be not be idle with the issue of oppression and oppressors, but seek to help God's cause.

3. If more beloved then God, his Messenger, and striving in his way


If things like wealth, our job, our family, etc, is more beloved to God, his Messenger, and striving in his way, then indeed we are a trangressing people God will not guide.


4. Extremisim in the past with regards to humans.


Uzair and Jesus were deemed sons of God and previous people entrusted with revelations went into extreme.

5. They desire to put out the light with their mouths.


The light of God which was emanating from Mohammad, and being revealed through the Quran, is something people going to extremes as well try to put out. And indeed it will further show the light they try to put out.

6. He is who sent the Messenger with the guidance and religion of truth.


The polytheists maybe averse but God will make the religion of truth prevail.

7. Many Priests, monks, etc that take wealth falsely.


It emphasizes on the believers that many clergy take people's wealth falsely and indeed, this all preparing the way for the next verse.

8. The Months are Twelve, four of them being sacred, that is the upright religion.



The verses leading up to this verse talk about how people went into extremes regarding his servants. Then it talks about how they wish to extinguish God's light. Then it emphasizes Mohammad is sent with the guidance and religion of truth that it may prevail over all religions.

It then emphasizes on that indeed many clergy take people's money falsely. And this is true of our time as well. Of Shiites as well.

So what does Quran then emphasizes on. The months are indeed Twelve, four of them being sacred, that is the upright religion.

We saw that previously it was emphasized there is Twelve Captains who were One way to God split up into twelve ways each representing each other's cause and path.

Indeed Mohammad is sent with the Guidance, but what is that Guidance? What is the religion of truth. It says "that is the upright religion".

Ali is the only name that appears four times among the Twelve Imams. The name "Allah" and "Ali" are linked in the the former is a much much absolutely greater degree then the latter.

Indeed is it the case that people equate those who are to be exalted to the rank of divinity that is they are to be worshiped, like the case of Uzair and Jesus, but the name is sacred for several reasons.

1. The limit we cannot go beyond is equating chosen servants with God and hence we cannot worship them a long side God, but rather there is a level of exalting that is unique to God. This is known as divinity, worship, godhood...we cannot go beyond exalting lest we bring down God to the level of his creatures!

2. We cannot neglect the rank of his exalted ones. Indeed being chosen above all people, they are to be revered at high level. The chosen ones are exalted in ways other people are not. Thus if we shall short it's due to not recognizing God's favor on us through his chosen ones!

3. The name has been repeated through Quran with respect to God, but we know God being a god implies much greater status. Unlike other names like merciful, loving, hearing, wise, this name is not aspect but has the same meaning of "god" but at much lower level of reverence.   So when God says he is exalted,  logic and reason dicates, more then emphasizing on himself, he is emphasizing on his exalted servants,  that their right is linked to his right, although his right is much higher and much more exalted to the extent that he alone should be revered at highest level which is worship.

4. The Quran emphasized that we turn away from the path mainly because of pride and arrogancy, and hence, if we recognize the exalted status of his chosen ones, everything will be fine. The issue of submission comes down to not heightening ourselves over God's exalted ones, but rather coming to them submissive.

5. The way we glorify God is through a perception, and the Quran has emphasized on the name of Harun with respect to prostration, we will get in more detail of this. But they exalted ones are also the means by which we glorify God and Worship God. This doesn't mean we worship them to worship God, rather we aim through their glorification of God towards God and are manifested through the light of the knowledge the path and way towards God.

In midst of all this, it's emphasizing that the months are no more then twelve, and no less.

The Twelve represent the guidance Mohammad came with which is continuing his Wilayah. As upholding the Twelve Successors, we would of understood and uphold the guidance of Mohammad and the purpose of why he was sent, it is the upright religion.


9. Sticking to the earth rather then helping God's way.


Indeed the heart of the issue of why the successors are not helped is the same as why Rasool is not helped. It is irrelevant to the issues of clear proofs.

Indeed people justify not helping the Guardian Master of God through their clinging to the earth.

10. We will be replaced by another people if we abandon God's religion.


Indeed if we abandon the Rasool and his 12 Successors, we would be replaced by another people.

11. God and the Messenger have more right to be pleased.


Indeed the Guardian Master with the earth, like God, has more right to be pleased...then others.

12. They were more abundant in power and wealth....


Indeed the hypocrites and disbelievers feel safe due to their wealth and power they have often in many times, but the Quran is showing indeed God destroyed people who thought themselves safe and better in position in many times. And indeed Mohammad is sent to that the world becomes aware of the truth so that believers may inherit the earth and justice be established.

13. The best of those who race ahead!


Indeed the best and most worthy recitation by what we have seen so far in Quran, and the more appropriate by the structures of the Surahs so far, and by flow, and the only recitation to be supported by ahadith, is that verse 9:100 is saying  as for the the best of those who race ahead from those who travel to God and help his cause, and those who follow them in goodness, then God is pleased with them and they are pleased with God.

The best of those who race ahead in travelling to God and helping his cause, is Ahlulbayt.

Suratal Yonus

Indeed one of the Surahs that makes a very potent argument to all humans for Islam is Suratal Yonus. It has a very strong argument therein for Leadership from God.

1. The ships.


We see here Quran talks about ships. In then talks about how God when called sincerely in midst of hardship always delivers to safety. Then humans after being brought to safety and responded, turn ungrateful and begin to rebell against themselves.

We saw earlier Quran emphasized that the covenant of Moses took twelve Captains. And we saw twelve emphasized before. This shows the complimentary nature Surahs play with each other and how each verse manifest each other.

This also a major prelude to what is going to come in the next Surah.

2.  God guides to the truth, is he who guides to the truth more worthy of being followed....


This is a sound and good argument from God.  First it is upon the Creator to a create a system of guidance.  We saw earlier in Suratal A'araaf it was emphasized that there was from the people of Moses a people who were a way to God and guided by the truth and by it establish justice. They were divided into twelve portions and ways to God.

This Surah also brings us back to that theme, but says, it is in fact God who guides to the truth.  Thereby the guidance of those who guide by the truth is God's guidance.

Then it says something important, who is more worthy of being followed, one who guides by the truth or one who is not guided unless God guides him.

We know Prophets are such that God must guide them as well. But it's saying their guidance is that of God and that they have guaranteed proof of being guidances and ways to God.

The essential thing is people usually think you have to follow people we aren't guided unless God guides them or who are not God's guidance, to follow God, because there is no direct guidance from him.

This Surah emphasizes God guides to the truth, and hence he should be follow through the means he appoints!


3.  Some of them look towards you, will guide who is blind?


We see again a theme of blindness to the Guide of time, to be the issue with the fault of people, and not God not providing guidance!

4. You have no authority for this, do you say about God what you do not know!


We see here in the issue of polytheism it says they had no authority but the argument is broader in that people don't have the right to attribute to God things without knowledge or proof!

5. The Story of Nuh


He asked no respite from them and for them do their worse against him, and that God would protect him. The exact same phrase was said in Suratal A'raaf commanded by God to Mohammad.

6. Messengers were raised up with clear proofs


The Quran is showing and reminding indeed the way God guides to the truth. It reminds of the Messengers in general in the past.

7. Magnifying glass on the issue of clear proofs and bringing people to safety on the ships with tribulations.


In the story of Moses and Aaron indeed it is emphasizing that God is manifesting not a just a single time when he interfered with oppressors and their hate towards believers on earth, but that he has done so in the past.

It's not the first time he delivers the oppressed from oppressors and brings a saviour.

Moses and Aaron were sent with clear authority and clear proofs and that is the last example of this before Mohammad was sent.

8. No people mentioned in Quran benefited from the reminder but people of Yonus.


Bani-Israel as they turned rebellious shortly after being delivered didn't benefit from their faith. The only people who stayed upon the guidance that are mentioned in Quran and recalled is the people of Yonus.

9. Waiting till the days of those who past before them happen.


It seems Mohammad is also waiting for this to happen as do the disbelievers. The disbelievers see it far off and something that is not going to happen, while believers see it as something inevitable and close at hand.

10. Then we deliver the Messengers and those who believe, thus is upon us to deliver the believers!


These stories of course are not just stories, but also warnings of what must come to pass. Indeed Mohammad (s) is sent to the whole world, and it will be upon God to free all the believers of the world from the tribulations they face for their faith.

May God hasten the appearance of Imam Mahdi and hasten his victory and saving us from oppression.

This is a clear case that there is a chosen one who God will save the believers by at the end time.

It is what Mohammad is waiting for.


11. "The hidden belongs to God...so wait, we too are of those who wait"


Earlier it was mentioned that why not a proof sent down, it was said, the hiding of it is for God and to wait, we too are those who wait. This shows one day the clear proof of the guide of time and guidance will be manifest to the whole world.

Whatever degree God manifests or hides the proof of his guide, is up to him.

Thus the manifesting of the proof is what occured before in past nations, but the tribulations would increase, and it would become incumbent on God to deliver the believers from the oppressors.

Some thoughts of what has been shown so far.


Indeed the verses of Quran are as if all collectively holding to another in a giant double linked chain.  They all connect to one another.

We see some wisdom in the issue of Ghayba in Suratal Yonus, we see why it has occurred in the past, in the trials of the past, and why it continues today as God waits for us to sincerely turn to him in Worship.

Indeed much of the Quran is telling us to avoid turning our backs lest severe trials and divisions and oppression and corruption occurs, but that has been long done.

The Quran shows different outcomes that are possible for the umma to have taken, but it has taken the worse path.

It seems it is almost becoming inevitable that we become totally replaced by another people.

We saw people after being saved from oppression, rather then being grateful, their hearts would turn hard.

We saw that God was consistent in steering this ship on course through Captains he himself raised and took a covenant with.

We saw in Bani-Israel these were Messengers and their number was Twelve. The issue of succession has been clarified in Quran.

The way towards God containing those who guide by the truth was split into twelve portions, and each of them was a way/course to God themselves.

Abraham was a course and way to God. And these verses are all explaining what they all mean and intend.


It's as if the whole Quran has come to show who truly possess the authority, and hence, it's the hugest insult to God's book to say the verse is ambiguous and can mean anything like scholars or rulers or other type of leaders chosen by people.

Indeed God chose the families possessing authority before us and emphasized on it.


The deception that the Quran talks about people who have hard hearts towards the books of God and twist verses away from their places, is they are cursed by their disbelief.

They don't truly have faith in the true light of God,  they rather hate it, and do their best to put it out.

We saw this was the case, and they praise their priests, rabbis or their own Shaikhs or Imams that they picked, and some go to extreme regarding the leaders appointed by God while taking the mantle of their authority and all that while they take people's wealth falsely.

Humanity has been a catastrophe.  The Christians convinces himself all those who oppose his creed are insincere. The Muslims do the same.

But the truth is whatever the path is, it must have clear DISTINCT arguments that show it to be the unique path.

The logic of twelve is not only something that happens true, indeed, it happens to be the case, that reason and logic shows God would be consistent with a number.

It doesn't have to be emphasized a thousand times in Quran for it be signifcant. Indeed fasting is only mention once, and one of the most celebrated lines in Quran, that God is the light of the heavens and the earth, is only mentioned once.

Not everything has to be repeated many times for it be significant.


The mention of Twelve with respect to rivers seems mysterious. There is two ways to go about this. One is to assume a meaning, the twelve tribes all given a river, no significant meaning to us, sort of approach.

Another is to say these are the BEST stories, most significant things to reflect upon, the best words that God could of picked, the most significant, and all emphasizing on the guidance that Mohammad has come with and the footseps that will be followed from him.

If you see it that way, and fear God that way, and believe in that way. The Quran begins to come together and unravel it's connection with the family of the revelation.

The hadiths of Ahlulbayt are a cure, but people go to them with hard hearts, instead of seeking to learn, they seek to impose their ignorance upon them.

What we see so far is the whole Quran so far has been about Wilayah of Ali and his family.

That is it's emphasis in the past, is all to emphasize on the Ahlulbayt that God will unite humanity upon, the Greatest of all Ahlulbayts, the best of the chosen families.

The next Surah has a significant verse that we cannot ignore as it is linked to something we must all say in Salah. I hope people pay heed and begin to understand how Rasool's words compliment the Quran, how the Shariah and Quran go together, and how whatever is inwardly in the Sunnah but not outwardly, is outwardly in Quran, and whatever outwardly is in the Sunah but not outwardly in Quran, is inwardly in Quran.

This is the nature, because God wants to understand and follow through insight. The Quran is about giving insights.

The next Surah has some huge verses that are very important to reflect about.

The insights it gives is mocked by the haters of Ahlulbayt and Quran manifests their hearts are playful regarding religion, rebellious against God's signs, and insincere to God.

They believe in the falsehood when it was said to them, and when the truth of God's book and it's reasoning was shown, they disbelieved.

So they prefer to believe in the sorcery of Shayateen and take them as Awliya over God, and believe in the Taghut, despite the Quran commanding to disbelieve in it.

Suratal Hud


1. To worship none but God.

Indeed we will see God's Mastership and obedience to his chosen ones, is going to be emphasized as in reality, worshiping God alone, and that if we do value God more then everything else, we would stick and hold on his to his chosen ones.

2. It maybe your heart is straitened

Indeed we will see this issue is a common subject in Quran, how Moses himself would have had a straitened heart were it not for Aaron who God strengthened his back and widened his breast by.

Here we see as they were saying "why not a treasure or an Angel be brought down", and he felt there was much he can reveal and explain and we see it's not the fault of Prophets that they feel a striatened heart or tied tongue but it's due to the fault of the people.

In this regard, it shows the position of Aaron to Moses is not any fault or superiority of Aaron in conveying, but that, given time, Aaron succeeding the position of Moses, would be able to elaborate and emphasize and continue to teach on the tracks of his message which would make him "better in tongue" "greater in conveying".

We will elaborate more on this when Aaron and Moses prayer comes up, but sufficient to say, this verse reveals a purpose and reason of having successors. The reason is obviously, knowledge is something that cannot be conveyed in one go, but that society needs to have it built for them.

When they are ignorantly disputing and saying things like "why not a treasure brought down upon him" - when the greatest favor possible for God has bestowed upon him, and greatest of honors has been given to him, and when the station of human potential has been actualized by him, but they are ignorant of all what Quran has emphasized, there is much he cannot say when they resort to conjecture like this.

This is why successors among many reasons are always necessary.

3. On a clear proof from his Lord and a witness from him recites it


The clear proof and what he is reciting is indeed a great treasure that reveals the station meant for humans. So this is a great response but it's doubtful they will listen.

The witness from him as we will see the next verse refers to the witnesses emphasized throughout Quran who people will be called with, each people with a witness from themselves.

The "from him" we will see with the theme of chosen family in this Surah, refers back to Mohammad, not to God in this instance, although, both of them, in any case, would refer to a divinely chosen witness.

But with the flow of what is to follow, it is obvious it refers to Mohammad.

4. The witnesses will testify against those who lied against their Lord.


We see in Quran a theme of a witness from each people, we see what is meant by witness from him, is emphasizing on the theme of this that we saw emphasized already before the Ulil-Amr and after Ulil-Amr verse in flow with respect to that, so this bringing this issue. Who are the witnesses? We already saw they come in forms of divinely chosen families and we will see this Surah heavily emphasizes on this!

5. Nuh was such a witness! His followers were accused of being the low people!

Indeed Nuh was such a witness who people will be called with and who knows the liars, and he similarly responds with the issue of being on a clear proof and emphasizes as well that his followers who are deemed with a low estimation by his opposition are such that he won't say they won't be given a great immense position with God or favor from God or he would be among the unjust.

6.  His ship was built on revelation.


Indeed this important, just as his ship is built on revelation, so must society be built on the ship of God and they must come to the ship that is build on revelation.

7. Despite good arguments, very few of them believed.


As we see going with what was stated before, the founding Messengers feel a thick veil by their people, and is no wonder they say "my heart is straitened and my tongue doesn't reach" when coming to people who are overwhelmed with ignorance.

Very few people can benefit from their teachings while they wish to bring their people out of the darkness to the light.

8. Even a son of his, could not hear.


His son didn't understand the need of navigation from God and that there was no escaping that one must ride with Nuh.

9. ...for by the name of God is it's sailing and anchoring.


We see now the issue of Twelve Captains has a reached an eloquent peak. The issue of the REAL ship that he had to embark is that it's nagivation by the name of God. The real ship is the name of God.

As the ship is steered by the name of God, the Captain is the name of God as well.

What is the ship today? We will see it's who the affair of God cannot be separated from, the chosen family of time.

10. O Noah he is not of your family, for his conduct is other then righteous.


Although his son was a disbeliever,  the issue of disqualifies him from being of a family member of Noah is higher still. It's that his conduct is other then righteous. So this shows true family of Prophets can only be who conduct is righteous.

11.  No wage do I ask for it.


We see in Suratal Yonus and in this Surah it is emphasized that Prophets don't ask a wage. But we know Mohammad (pbuh&hf) does ask a wage. If the issue was that of "closeness to God" and "path to God" meant love of that of the former, all Prophets would have asked a wage. But we see in reality, this is reminding that they didn't ask a wage. So the issue of wage of God completing the religion and sending the seal of all Prophets which all Prophets prepared people for,  is not something that generic.

When we are reminded Prophets don't ask a wage, we automically should remember our Prophet did ask a wage. And we see with the theme of chosen guidance, and chosen family, there is a reminder and wisdom as why the Seal of Prophets is an exception.

The exception is Prophets would of looked bad if they stated we ask no reward but to be followed, because, it makes them look power hungry and that while they don't care about wealth, they care about being followed.

But that is unfair to them, when they are making way for Prophets that would succeed them. In this regard, as Mohammad put's end to Prophethood but wishes for his revelation to be followed, God makes him emphasize that in fact, the revelation by calling to obey God and the Messenger through out is in fact, asking us to recognize and love his family position in all that, with the issue of taking that authority.

So Mohammad (pbuh&hf) is not interested in being glorified and loved but rather his family. That may make him look more selfish as it makes look like he wants to leave a dynasty.

This is why these verses are essential to show the issue of divinely appointed authority and chosen families came together in the past, and there is no escaping it in the present and future.

12.  Scheme against me and give me no respite.


We see that the founding Prophets all despite emphasizing on their opponents to submit say, really, if you are not going to submit, then do your worse. 

This is their confidence in God and certainty in him.

13. Delivered Hud and those who believed in him.


Naturally a physical ship is not needed to be delivered, and indeed Hud was that Ship of salvation.

14. they disobeyed his Messengers and followed the biding of every insolent opposer.


Indeed the Messengers were the True authorites by which God is obeyed. But people were obeying insolent leaders who had no right to leadership and who opposed the Prophets.

15. Given news of Isaac and Jacob.


Going back to the issue of chosen famililies and the witnesses, we see here there is emphasis Abraham's family, and that they were given news of Isaac and Jacob.

16. Do you wonder at the affair of God? Loving compassion and blessings be upon you O people of the House indeed He his Praisewrothy Majestic.


The issue of the affair of God was not something that Abraham or Sarah should find stranged. Indeed as they were part of the chosen family of time,  such an occurence, should not seem strange to them.

17. If Nuh's family and issue of succession was known to Abraham, why did Abraham wonder if he would have such offspring?


We see in this context, Lut, is reminded. Indeed Lut was also part of the family of Abraham, although, not born from Abraham, he was his cousin, who was "from him".

As Abraham reached old age, he must have thought the continuing legacy and Prophethood would continue either in the line of Ismael or Lut. He didn't expect to get it with Sarah.

18. Why the good news?


Sarah was a special person, indeed the mother of Ismael was special too and pious, but Sarah was an even more special. The Angels tell her she is part of the chosen family, and as such, we see that to honor her, is the real emphasis on Isaac and Jacob.

As Isaac and Jacob could of been born to Ismael to honor Abraham, or the line could continued in Lut, the issue of that his successors would be mainly in the line born from Sarah, was a huge issue.

Indeed Sarah was something that Abraham really wanted to be honored with having Isaac followed up with the successor to the position of Divine Leadership.

And the same is true of the love of Mohammad (pbuh&hf) towards Fatima (s). As Fatima (s) is so dear to him,  he was inevitable that no sons would remain of Mohammad (pbuh&hf) and no grandchildren would remain of him except through Fatima (s).

These verses are revealing the noble status of Fatima (s) with respect to Mohammad (pbuh&hf) by emphasizing the issue of the affair of God with Sarah (s).

And indeed going back to the issue of being given a treaure from God, indeed, be given the likes of Isaac and Jacob in their seed, was a greater treasure than the whole world had to offer!

12. We don't understand much of what you say.

When proper reasoning is shown, the opposition to the truth resort to saying they don't understand the other side instead of dealing with their arguments and reasoning.

13. Is my family more esteemed to you than God?


We see people were is such a degenerate state that God was thrown behind their back and they neglected their duty to him.

We see this ties back to beginning of this Surah where it's about worshiping God alone, while reality, is not that only people who turn away from his ships of salvations and the Captains that steer believers by the name of God,  is that they turn away from God's Name, but that they all together belittle God to such that people are held in higher esteem to them.

14.  Should of forbid mischief in the earth.


In flow of this, it reminds, of the duty of all people who understood to forbid mischief in the earth.


15. All that was related of the Messengers....

All that is related of the Messengers is to strengthen the heart of the Messenger and in that, has come the truth, and admonishment and reminder to the believers!

Indeed to read it as non-applicable to us is missing the point of these verses.  In it is the truth. The truth of God's Holy Names is being manifested through this.


16. So wait, we too are waiting.

We see in line with the Surah before, it emphasized on God delivering the believers and destroying in the unjust.  We see the command to wait to disbelievers, and that "we too are waiting".

Suratal Yusuf


The Surah before emphasized all that is recited regarding the Messengers strengthens the heart of Mohammad and in that the truth has come and admonishment and a reminder to the believers.

It's perfect timing that this Surah comes after.  In this story, there are many eternal truths revealed but will focus on the issue of leadership.

It also emphasized on the Abrahamic family to be continued from Isaac and this was due to God's love towards Sarah. Thus it's also perfect timing in that regard.


1.  Understands the sayings.


Yusuf had a perception higher than others, and the favor he was bestowed was bestowed upon his forefathers and is a favor that would be completed on the family of Jacob.


2. Jealousy of his brothers and distinction between him and them.


Yusuf obviously is special in God's eyes and Jacob's eyes, and is linked to Abraham in a way his brothers are not.

3.  Upon a clear proof prevents him from lust.


Due to him having a clear proof,  he didn't succumb to inward thoughts of lust when cornered with a hard decision for normal people, and preferred prison over the sin they were calling him too.

Clear proof was emphasized throughout in the Surah before.

4. Jealousy towards him.


Indeed his brothers had a jealousy towards him, and so if people born in the lineage of Ali and Fatima have jealousy towards an Imam, it is no surprise!

5. Patience.


Indeed patience of the chosen ones has been manifest, and it can be seen "due to what they had patience in" is love towards God and clear proof and vision of God's truth.

We see in this story a distinct patience of God's chosen ones.

6. Yaqoub's grief for Yusuf.


Indeed Yaqoub was made superior in knowledge and wisdom, and in that higher knowledge from God, lied intense grief. God blessed him with such state, and his grief was regarding Yusuf.

The chosen ones - knowledge from God and love towards them come together.

7. Verily God has preferred you over us!


We can see indeed that the likes of Yusuf are an intense blessing to humans, and we see even those who envy them, when they repent and accept them, they are blessed and honored through their love of them.

This story among this shows how the chosen ones are a means to God.

8. Ask forgiveness for us.


Indeed Yaqoub was an elite servant of God, and was means to God's forgiveness.


9. The Sun of the world.


The sun was a parable to Jacob, and as such Jacob was the means by which God's light reached others.

10. His shirt healed Jacob's physical eyes.


Indeed the cure to grief and blindness is love towards God's chosen ones, and we see when Yacoub a chosen ones, could scent the shirt of Yusuf, it healed his eyes.

This was a sign towards them that indeed scenting God's chosen ones is a means out of blindness.

11.  I call upon insight and those who follow me


The true followers of Mohammad, call others upon insight. Everyone else is negated from being followers of Mohammad no matter how much zeal they have towards this most great figure.

12.  And you do not ask them a wage that it is only a reminder to the worlds.


We see this is the second time the wage appears in the Quran in the flow of it's final form.  Here the link to loving the family of Mohammad and the Suratal Yusuf is very clear.

They are like the family of Abraham, they are chosen, and they are to be loved.  And indeed it's a reminder that will heal blindness and make us see things upon insight.

It's a means to honor us just love of Yusuf was an honor once his brothers embraced it.

And indeed we see that God intends nothing but the family of Mohammad in the wage, and this Surah and it's place mentioned here is a proof of that.

Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.

Suratal Ra'ad

Suratal Bayana says Mohammad is the clear proof yet they were demanding a sign.  Indeed that hiding of the sign as Surah before showed is for God, and it's up to God to manifest it.  Here it emphasizes that they demand a sign while Mohammad is but a warner and for every people, there is a Guide.

The guide is the one who God manifests with clear proofs and is ultimately himself God's proof on earth, and he manifests him to some people while to others he and the proofs for him are hidden.

He is the one with knowledge of the book alluded at the end.

And while they demand a sign, a Messenger can only bring a sign with God's permission.

Ultimately through  God's proof is proven and manifested through his revelations while physical miracles are temporal to the people witnessing it, and the guide is also the clear proof of God.

But indeed who God misguides, has no Guide.

1. God wishes to bring people out of darkness to light.


It says the book is revealed for Mohammad to bring people out of the darkness into the light. It then reminds of a similar role with Moses.

2. The days of God

The days of God before Moses was told to remind them was when Pharoah was punished. In the past, it was when nations were destroyed. There is a day of God coming to the whole world, which Moses warns that if his people disbelieve or all those in the earth, then God is Sufficient/Rich, not in need of them.

It reminds of the Messengers of the past and people turned away from their arguments and pretended they didn't understand them.

The same is true of humanity turns deaf ears on the loud arguments of the Quran.

3. The oppressors will perish.


When people were not given freedom of belief and were attempted to be forced to turn away from practicing the truth,  God made the oppressors perish.

4. The cursed call of Iblis vs that of the blessed word/tree.

Indeed Iblis doesn't believe in the identity he inspires people with from his unclean spirit, by which they associate with God, never the less the cursed tree by which Iblis is worshiped and associated with God is there.

The pure word is like a pure tree, good blessed, on the other hand. We have no one to blame when God's promise is true and manifestly so, and Satan's call is a deception and manifestly so.

If we are deceived, we are deceived because we wished to be deceived.


5. A people who have changed God's favor and put rivals to God.

Indeed the favor of God is that he brings people through the blessed tree towards God, calls people through his pure word of light.

6. Abraham prays regarding a portion of his offspring.


Abraham prays that a portion of people incline to a portion of his offspring he has left behind. This is a major hint to the wage emphasis in Quran,  the means to be grateful, the favor of the 12 Captains through Ghadir Declaration, who the Ulil-Amr are.  And the cursed tree seeks to blind people to this favor, the Taghut is the cursed tree.

7. God has shown us what he did to those who were unjust to themselves in the past.


This is a warning, for humanity, to treat right these people who Abraham prayed regarding to and not turn unjustly towards God's favor!

8. A reminder of Ismael, and Isaac.


Indeed Abraham was blessed with Ismael and Isaac, but this was a blessing he knew was a way to honor humanity through him perpetually.

Suratal Al-Hijr


Why not bring Angels?


Indeed, this is one of the topics that Quran clarifies.  And indeed in response to this objection, it must prove the wisdom of appointing humans as guides and prove the need of guidance.

They would not believe regardless


As Messengers are sent with clear proofs, the issue is not about Angels being a greater proof, as the proofs shown that Prophets are sent with are clear and manifest enough.

If  a door to the sky was open


Indeed Angelic realities can be seen, but if such a door was open, they would say they were enchanted.

As the subject is about Mohammad's proof, indeed, it is implied the Sky here is Mohammad, the highest reality in creation.

And Surely we made in the sky lanterns and we have adorned to the lookers.


It's saying, they are asking for these proofs, while at the same time, God has made in the sky (Mohammad) lanterns that he adorned to the lookers.

The problem is we are closing our vision to what we are connected to.

According to a noble hadith to Imam Jaffar (as), the "lanterns" are twelve and according to a hadith from the Prophet, God doesn't raise a Prophet except with him are twelve Captains.

The Imams (as) were witnessed to be there in Miraaj and Rasool (saw) saw the Imams with him,  and Quran says regarding Ayub (as) "And we gave him his family and the likes of them with him".


Brief reminder of Jinn, Iblis, and Adam (as).


Indeed it than goes after reminding the position of God with humanity, of the Jinn, and Adam and Iblis, and how Angels all postrated except Iblis.

Your heart is indeed constrained by what they say.


We see that the primary issue with Moses as the Surahs will show, was the same, as this with Mohammad (pbuh&hf). And indeed this shows it is not a fault of Mohammad at all nor of Moses, that their tongues were tied and their hearts constrained, that they prayed for a Successor widen was otherwise locked.

In this regard, the Surah is making way for two subjects:


1. The wisdom of "We did not send down before you except men who we revealed to, therefore ask the family of the reminder if you do not know" in it's two places which are connected with a series of Surahs.

2. And the wisdom of Moses' prayer with respect to the family of Aaron and Moses, and Aaron's covenant, and the wisdom of the Twelve Captains coming in succession to one another.

Spiritually, it is making the case, all humans have access to the twelve Captains who were with the Messenger, to seek light from them and he adorned the sky (Mohammad's high soul reality) with twelve blazing lights.

That they were asking for Angels to be sent, but the only advantage of Angels would be a connection to the unseen, but that door to the unseen higher realms, is Mohammad, and not only that, but has adorned him with the exact number of successors he will have with him, and just like Mohammad was unveiled them, if we are to be manifested in truth the unseen, which Angels only come down in their Angelic forms in truth, then we would be Guided by the guide.

The Next Surah will bring a discussion that will emphasize on these truths from a different perspective, and emphasize on the need of manifesting what has been revealed to us to add to this argument. We see the Quran is flowing perfectly on the subject of human divinly appointed leadership, and shows perfect arguments regarding God's perfect design.

Suratal Nahl


Upon God it is to show the way.


There is no doubt misleading paths and what door will we go to other than God's. The Surah before talked about if God would open a door that they would ascend by, and indeed, here it is saying it is upon God to show the way as there are misleading ways. And so God will show the way when we make our hearts ready to be guided.

And indeed before then reminds of God making us horses to ride on in the earth and making things benefit us, the question, then what about our primary purpose, to travel to God, to be guided?


Marks and stars - guide humans.


Indeed just as physically humans needed guidance in direction, the same is true spiritually. Recalling the Surah before, this is obvious a hint to what has been discussed. It is emphasizing indeed rationally, the path needs indications and God has to be approached by vision from stars and marks he appoints.

Are they but tales of the Ancient?


Indeed to people who don't reflect, this perfect way of God in the past, leading to the seal of Prophets and his successors, is but tales of the ancient. But to those who reflect, they see a wise planned way of God with humanity.

Ontological truths that cannot be dismissed.

Context of family of the reminder.


In this Surah that reminds of God's favors outwardly and inwardly to humanity, and the way they must be guided, it emphasizes and indeed he always sent men who he revealed to in the past, so therefore ask the family of the reminder if you do not know.

If the reminder was not Quran and Mohammad, than the Quran yet guides and says, find the reminder and seek knowledge from it's designated family, and indeed in the stories of chosen families, the truth has come, and it is the wisest way expected of God.

To show what has been revealed to them.


And indeed it shows this was one of the primary roles of Mohammad, to show and clarify what has been revealed, and indeed those sent before were sent with scriptures and clear proofs, and indeed this role of clarifying and being supported with clear proofs will continue in his family.

Those who plan evil.


Related to this, is how people will try to blind people to the remind and oppose the family of the reminder. It warns of their evil and reminds humanity how the Arabs acted with the Messenger and reminder to start with.

The Surah before however assuredly emphasized that God would protect the reminder.

Indeed Messengers were sent before but Satan adorned evil deeds.


Indeed this is a warning that while God protects the reminder, indeed it's benefits might not come, as Satan in the past overcame people with adorning evil deeds.

The recognize the favor of God but deny it.


Indeed each chosen family and their respective reminders, were a blessing, they acknowledge this, yet deny it.

The witnesses.


It then reminds of the witnesses who were earlier hinted to the people possessing knowledge, who will testify against them.

This is a serious hint that the witnesses are the chosen families, and the witnesses from us are the family of the reminder.

To not unyarn what you have tied tightly and deceive yourself by numbers in people.


Indeed it is warning to take the covenant seriously, and not disregard the rights of the witnesess who will testiy against them.

Who in this nation are obviously the family of the reminder and in past nations were chosen Ahlulbayts as well.

It goes on to emphasize of who will be guided and who will not be.


Indeed it shows those who believe and understand Quran to be people who desire the next world while those who oppose each reminder and break the covenant are of a people of hearts inclined to this world and they deceive themselves.

Abraham was a way


Indeed Abraham was a course to God, a way towards God, and indeed this emphasizing what was meant by "way" and the "twelve ways" in people of Moses.

It's saying indeed what God has met by ummatan in some places in the Surahs recited before, is in the same way Abraham was an ummatan.  To be a way to God and this what it means to be a leader.

This emphasizing on the family of the reminder of the time, being a way, as well as split after the Messenger, in twelve ways, all this flowing well with the Surahs before, and they allude to another.

And indeed the next Surah will emphasize in a similar note but add important perspectives as well and have it's own mysterious beauty with respect to the issue of leadership.

Suratal Isra

The vision of Mohammad (pbuh&hf) and his journey, is reminded in this Surah.

And indeed the verses are emphasizing commands and stuff, all to emphasize we are to make a similar journey.

The cursed tree in Quran has been described as the Taghut that get's legitimacy from the Jibt.

In midst of the fray of God emphasizing on the path and commands, it says there will be a day when every people will be called with their leader and it is the leader who we are expected to follow with respect to morality and goodness, the book which we will be accounted for hence is stated.

It doesn't refer to political authority by context but given how much was emphasized on witnesses before, it is obvious the witness we will be called to is the leader.

And then an important is said, who ever is blind in this (world or regarding that), will be blind in the next. It almost as if it's emphasizing yes there is a leader that shows the way,  and he is meant to show the way in the next world as well, but if we are blind and cannot benefit from his light and guidance in this world, we will not benefit it in the next.

And the prayer of Mohammad (pbuh&hf) is told to pray can have an analogy to Moses' prayer.

At the end regarding proofs, the people were making a lot of demands to prove the leader of their time,  but what was said is that nothing prevented him from sending more proofs except the first ones (of the people of Mohammad) rejected, and indeed signs are sent only to cause fear.

So the people had seen so much signs, but were now making crazy demands, and in their heads these demands had to made.

And at the end, because the miracles were clear, they made a demand that they would not believe because Angels weren't brought down and if God really really wanted to guide humans, he would sent Angels down.

They had their own reasoning, and with their own reasoning, convinced themselves the truth was not true.

This despite the reasoning Quran goes to in Suratal Ana'am "And if we made it an Angel, we would of made a mortal and they get confused about what they are confused about (further)"

And "We do not send down Angels except in truth" and "If we opened them  a door to the sky (Mohammad)" and indeed these verses are showing Mohammad was the door to his higher reality, the leader and guide in the journey.

They were making demands while their leader and guide and door to the higher realities is through Mohammad (pbuh&hf).

It than reminds also that Pharaoh was sent 9 clear signs, and we know each sign was bigger than the former.

The problem with not following the leader of time who is the proof that is up to God to make manifest to the whole world or hide the sign,  is not that the Quran doesn't clarify the issue.

The problem is people are making unnecessary claims.

We saw that the theme of not following leaders not appointed by God was primary in Surahs 2-5. We saw 6th Surah emphasized on the issue of proofs and problem with the heart.

We saw how clear the context showed who the Ulil-Amr are. We saw how Suratal Maeda came in clarifying the emphasis on twelve Captains. We saw the ship that sails by the name of God emphasized with respect to chosen families.

We saw earlier to the two Surahs before Suratal Isa, emphasizing on the spiritual dimension of Mohammad and the Twelve Stars/Captians/Lanterns with him and how they are the means to be guided.

The family of the reminder, we saw the the Surah before Suratal Nahl emphasized on what the reminder was,  hinted to Moses's prayer with respect to Mohammad (pbuh&hf) and we know for certain that the family of the reminder is what is met.

But people will cover their ears all to do away with these clear recitations and proofs of the Authority of the family of Mohammad.

They will justify following leaders Quran warns have no authority, and demand so much proofs Quran and Sunna for the blessed family of Mohammad who we must bless in Salah.

Their a leader who will be called to, but will remain blind to his leadership both in the Quran and Sunnah (message of Mohammad (pbuh&hf) as well in the connection he has with us by which he is the clear proof and the great tiding and the sign of God that is the rope and handhold of God.

Suratal Kahf



Indeed the Surah before also emphasized Bani-Israel was warned to take an Authority other than God. It was emphasized in this respect, each people will be called with their leader on the day of judgment and we saw how witnesses were emphasized befoer that.

We saw the clarification of succession of the 12 Captains through the covenant of a founding Captain, and gratitude is expected of people.

We saw the wage of the message was but a reminder to the worlds.

Suratal Kahf reminds than of Quran guiding to what is most upright.

Yet people might say if calls to a leader from God, where is this leader? How do people benefit?

Suratal Kahf is showing in the past indeed God guided believers in mysterious ways. He even guided Moses in a myterious way with a mysterious figure (Khidr).

Thal-Qarnain was also mysteriously doing things in benefit of humanity.

There was also in this respect, through the actions of Thalqarnain, things that would yet occur in the future with Majuj and Yajuj.

This is emphasizing indeed the world might be a lot more mysterious than we initially think.

And we shouldn't expect guidance to be what we demand it to be, but pray for guidance and that we be guided upon the most upright guidance and way through means God knows best.

And we shouldn't put our hopes in  a world that will perish but remember it's the next world that remains.

Indeed the Quran guides in this respect the basic essentials we must do to be guided by the likes of Khidr, Thalqarnain, etc..

The Guide on earth is here, how he works yes might be mysterious. But mysterious as the Surahs shows is not so strange in the sense it cannot occur, but just plain awesome!

If you think what Quran guides to mainly the leader of the time, is strange because he is hidden, then what do you make of the issue of the companions of the cave?

They were mysteriously guided in ways they did not expect.

May God guide us to the straight path!

Suratal Maryam

As the Guide is hidden, people may ask, what is the need of manifest apparent leaders that can be accessed by people?

Indeed we are reminded of the prayer of Zakariya who was one of the 12 Captains. Not only did he realize the necessity of being succeeded, but realized dangers that would occur in his time, if he would not be succeeded by offspring. Hence he asked for an inheritor or in other words pure offspring paraphrased in another Surah.

When one is pure through out his life, he is fit to inherit the guidance of Zakariya and become leader in the hidden and apparent aspects of religion and guidance.

This is one of the things. That despite people trying to make others fully pure, it is saying, in reality it is the chosen ones who are pure.

And indeed he feared others who would inherit from him, would take advantage of the situation, hence, was asking for pure offspring.

This is despite him already having knowledge of Mariam and Isa who would follow, and hence inherit from him spiritually and guidance, he needed a heir that was a biological direct heir to guarantee less confusion.

This is even while he knew Isa would be a Prophet with clear proofs and book. This is the issue.

Confusion arises, despite clear proofs. And so we have to look carefully into clear proofs, and not muddy the issue, just because there exists people who claim authority, it doesn't do away with the proofs of those who hold authority.

Mariam in the norm of how things work, it would not be wrong to assume she had an illegitimate relationship. But as she was declared pure and purified by God,  than people were condemned because they were turning away from clear proofs.

They were attributing purity to a people who didn't have proof of purity from God to negate purity from those who God manifested their purity.

The Prophets were but one way for humanity, a way that humanity dissected and claimed for themselves, they were the path to God but people claimed they were the means and path to God.

And indeed Ahlulbayt (as) continued to be that way from God, and there is wisdom in appointing them after Mohammad (pbuh&hf) which is very clear in Quran.

There is a love that God would make for believers that others are not bestowed.  And indeed the mercy to Zakariya was a mercy to humanity.

And indeed humans have perished in the past and will continue to do so, until they stop spling the affair and authority of God's chosen ones among themselves, who were but one way to humanity, representing the path of submission to God, the path of love.

Suratal Taha

Indeed this verse is also a prelude to a Surah which tells us to ask the family of the reminder. It makes way in a sense it explains a lot aside from Quran elsewhere declaring Mohammad is the reminder, how exactly the leaders are reminders and why the Quran uses the term the family of the reminder.

It's as if the two verses "the family of the reminder" are showing through the Surahs before them and also between them, what is meant by it.

We saw there was dialogue on the issue of Angelic vision, that is seeing Angels and in what circumstances that would occur, but then it connected it with the position of Mohammad and the guides after him.

We saw how essential this is also linked to the issue of what proof and sign.   

And we saw how Mohammad (pbuh&hf) had his heart constrained by what people say, and we saw the sort of things of ignorance they were saying and the conjecture relying on.

We saw earlier the twelve Captains from the people of Moses were likened to ways, all being one way from one perspective, and twelve ways linking back to one ancestral root as well from another perspective.

All this was linked with the issue of signs of God and proofs of God and guidance from God.

We now see a reminder of how Moses was sent, and we see an emphasis on Aaron.


1.   The prayer of Moses and how it's paraphrased.



Indeed Moses with the various paraphrases of his prayer, it is seen that he was praying that his heart become widen and spread through his brother Aaron and that he would thereby strengthen his back.

What does this mean?  A vizier from his family what does this mean?

Some noteworthy things, despite,  the knowledge of Moses about Aaron,  Moses didn't appoint Aaron, but rather asked God to appoint him.

The next thing to notice is that Surah before the family of reminder in 16th Surah, reminded of a similar constraint on Mohammad's heart but it was due to a fault of Mohammad but due to what people were saying, the conjecture, the falsehood they emit trying to put out God's light with their mouths.

The Quran reminds now of a similar challenge that Moses face. And we see the Pharaoh's people despite clear arguments from Moses end up following Pharaoh.

Another thing to recall is Suratal Inshirah, and how it says it's through God's Name that God widened/spread the heart of Mohammad, and relieved the burden on his back, that pressed heavily on his back.

This too similar and they obviously allude to one another.

Moses didn't have knot on his tongue due to a fault of his own, but it was rather Aaron who being a parter in his affair and be in better position to spread the words of Moses, and hence, be better and more eloquent in tongue.

But it wasn't actually due to a fault of Moses or actually physical knot on tongue of Moses or anything like that.

Aaron


Aaron name means exalted mountain.

God hears and sees and hence is with us all.


One the beautiful things is that to hear and see we have to hear and see by God's light, and he with us in this sense, because God's absolute vision of things are what defines thing, his wisdom defines wisdom, the various gradings of stages are also graded through his reality, through his very truth, through his hearing and sight, which is light upon light.

And this is essential to understanding this Surah.  Indeed Pharaohs claimed they were incarnations of the Creator, and series and lines of gods that were the same God.

But Moses claims he is the middle path, the path towards God, but not incarnation. That he is a humble servant of God.

God is what gives everything it's creation then guides it.


Indeed what defines things and gives them their outer and inward forms is God. He than guides it according to what is given to it through truth. Through vision and hearing of himself, are things truly guided.

Pharaoh was shown all the signs.


Even before 1st of 9 signs, Pharaoh was shown "all the signs", that is Pharaoh perceived through Moses all the truth and he understood it, it was if all holy books and their representatives argued with him with the exact same arguments and clear proofs, but he turned away.

Pharoah seeks to impose himself and manifest his so called power and authority.


The Pharaoh sought to impose himself on the Sorcerers when they believed, but what did they respond with?

You only control the life of this world.


Indeed from the perspective of the next world, it was Moses who had the clear authority aside from the clear miracles, it was obvious from perspective of the next world, the True King was Moses.

He forced them to do sorcery.


This Pharaoh forced sorcery upon the sorcerers....that was the extent of his evil, yet these people he had force upon them were breaking free, they were putting their faith on to God.

God delivered believers from their enemy!


Indeed as the Surahs before showed, it was a sad norm that after God delivers believers, and brings them to safety, after praying to God sincerely in tribulation and making the religion exclusively for him as the trials intensified, they turn ungrateful and associate with God when brought to safety.

They Samiri lead them astray despite the guidance of Moses and Aaron.


Indeed despite guidance, they turned to ignorance, irrational as if they were not given knowledge, as if they knew nothing all the time when they worshipped God sincerely.

so follow me and obey my command.


Indeed Aaron stood their but they neglected him, and belittled him despite his exalted status.

Yet when Moses came back


They started to obey Moses, this shows, that the line "but Moses forgot" is more of metaphoric paraphrasing, that they were teaching what Moses really really met to teach, deep teachings which were Shirk and nothing but darkness,  so by doing so it was like they were claiming Moses forgot to teach it.

This shows the evil of innovations in both in emphasizing in wisdom and knowledge, that chosen ones don't emphasize and teach,  because it's like saying they forgot. It is exactly saying this.

It is like saying they forgot to teach essential teachings.

Aaron didn't want to divide?


If they disbelieved in Moses, the issue of division would be superfulous, it would irrelevant, but this shows despite clear proof of Aaron how people who begin to act on ignorance and injustice act, they not only neglect the one who God appointed to guide them but begin to make it as if they know somethings that the Prophet and God would neglect and forget.

Indeed the issue of leadership is not an issue which God and his Messenger would neglect, but emphasize, and as they emphasize on things not directly taught by Moses, they became ignorant.

Lord of Aaron and Moses.


Indeed in remembering the Lord of Moses and Aaron, it was emphasizing, the God taught by Pharaoh which he claimed to incarnation of, is not the true God.

But we see now during Aaron, they became to make idols for God and say this golden cow moving, is either God or representation of God and indication of it.

This ignorance of not knowing God through the guidance and means of appraoch, not seeking the ways God has made on earth, and not drinking of the water descended from heaven, and not limiting our halal desires by that pure blessings from God,  would lead to disaster.

It not only destroyed Pharoah and his people, but this turning away from God's reminder would destroy bani-Israel.

The reminder is alluded in this Surah to be Ali was well.


The only place it mentiosn "do not fear for you are the highest" is in this Surah, and it pertains to Aaron and hence Ali as well.

Going back to Suratal Insharah and prayer, it would be saying the name of God is both Mohammad and Ali which is light of God extending to all things.

"Your God is the one who emrbaces all things in knowledge"

That which sees and hears, that which gives everything it's creationa and guides, that which embraces all things is knowledge must be absolute perfect sight vision and judgment, if we don't rely on the door he appoints, where will we go to? What sight will we seek other then the eyes he appoints, the witnesses he appoints?



To exalted be the true King.


God is the True King, the exalted ones, who appoints exalted mountains like Aaron as true Kings, like Ali as true kings.

The reminder by flow.


The reminder by flow although includes Mohammad (pbuh&hf) in this Surah particular and flow, refers to Ali and his Wilayah by emphasis, and that of the family of the reminder in general.

We see why Mohammad and Ali are the reminder, and each a reminder from this perspective.

They are the way to truly remember God "Lord of Aaron and Moses" and know Tawheed and the true exalted King of humanity.

So be patient on what they say


Indeed this goes back to the prayer of Moses and hence it is shown that Mohammad (pbuh&hf) must bear similar patience against words and slogans of ignorance trying to put of the reminder of God and light of God.

And Ali and the leaders from his offspring are middle way by which Mohammad's heart will be spread and his burden lifted that pressed heavily on his back.

They are the name of God, the reminder of God, and hence we see a perfection of what was meant by "therefore ask the family of the reminder".

Messengers were sent so we follow the signs of God.


The true signs of God are the leaders he appoints, the viziers on behalf of God which represent the True King and show the majesty of God's authority.
Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.

Suratal Anbiya

The issue of the word of God (Moses/Aaron) being heightened is a key issue. The beauty of God's Names vs the illusions of the world. Pharaoh was followed despite Moses being higher in people's eyes, that is they knew the truth but turned away from.

Suratal Inshirah summarizes Suratal Taha in many respects but with allusions to Ali being the name of God alongside Mohammad.

We saw how this all an emphasis on the term "family of the reminder" which is squished between the 16th Surah and 21st Surah.

This Surah is going to emphasize on the "reminder" throughout thereby giving context, that is both chosen ones the like of Abraham and the written reminders like the book of Moses.


A reminder doesn't come to them but they playfully mock



We saw in the 6th Surah, the joking playfully jest way of dealing with proofs and religion, as well as how the leaders of the people of the book took religion, was a huge warning. Suratal Anbiya is bringing all these themes together.

He is only a mortal like you


When God and Mohammad (pbuh&hf) say this, they are intending something else, and when disbelievers say this, they are intending something of mocking the station of the Mohammad (pbuh&hf). 

God knows the speech in the heavens and earth

Indeed the knot of Moses tongue and knot of Mohammad's tongue, and why their hearts are constrained, is due to such noise people make to make unclear the noble station and clear proofs provided both by the living reminder Mohammad and his recitation which is through him that one could truly recite.

And indeed in this speech, God knows how to untie the knots of Moses and Mohammad and widen their breast, and spread the knowledge.

So let him bring a proof


Indeed people in the past didn't believe, so it really is not due to Mohammad (pbuh&hf) not bringing proofs. And Bani-Israel divided despite being given clear proofs in their affair.

Division in this Umma would not mean unclear proofs in the religion.

The family of the reminder


And we see in this context, it is reminding, indeed all those sent before were at the end "mortals" like us, who God revealed to, and that therefore we are to turn to the family of the reminder when we do not know and are lost or in need of clarification.

The Surah will go emphasize on the family of the reminder and the reminder throughout. We saw earlier it was stated "there doesn't come to them a reminder" already giving context to it being the present reminder.

And delivered the believers.


Indeed the believers would be delivered, and this is promise binding on him, in the past it was always through a Messenger but in this nation, it will be through Imam Mahdi.

So far we see it has summarized a lot that was emphasized in the past Surahs.

And we have brought down a book in it is your reminder


Indeed this is giving context of what is meant by the family of the reminder, and in the book, our reminder is found therein, but through it's bright signs, not the darkness that comes from misinterpreting, that is why it is saying "in it is your reminder".

How many people were destroyed.


Indeed the Quran warns that is possible that people be destroyed for their insolence against God's reminder, and the Mahdi in Quran has two ways to play out, one that most people of the time benefit which is what God wants, or most people turn against the believers and seek to oppress them and force them to not practice the truth as before, in case which God will destroy the oppressors.

God casts the truth against the falsehood.


Indeed we have seen the philosophy and reasoning about God's guidance and leadership through his chosen ones, is a reasoning that is clear decisive and manifest.

The truth is what stabilizes everything.


As God is the absolute vision that sees things as they are, were there any other gods then him, everything would be corrupted, including if there was a god with him, the two gods and heavens and earth.

All Messengers send before him were told "there is no God but me"


All Messengers were told there is no God but God, and hence, and we saw that even during time of Moses and Aaron, people began to turn away from Tawheed and were in their innovations as if saying Moses forgot to teach an essential teaching regarding Tawheed.

This is a warning to stick to the family of the reminder for knowledge lest we go astray even regarding the oneness of God and the truth of his act of his act of creation and power and light by which everything is created and maintained.

Rather are honored servants.


The other extreme is to say chosen ones are the sons of God, or bring something to the level of God.  God is saying while he wants you to ask the family of the reminder and seek a means of approach through the reminder of time, do not go to extremes but rather recognizes they are honored servants who act by his command and do not precede him in speech.

The empty set


Whoever of them will say there is a god besides God, is none of them. It was said they do not precede him in speech. And this is key to the family of the reminder issue.

God is best fit to guide humanity and knows how to unlock knowledge. If we seek to precede God and his chosen ones in elaboration and speech, we will be misguided. This is what Mohammad (pbuh&hf) meant by "do not teach them for they know more then you" regarding his family.

they turn away from it's signs.


We saw earlier the highest sky created is Mohammad (pbuh) and there exists lanterns/lights/stars with him, the signs from the written reminder that extends to this sky from the lowest earth as well as the living reminder who is found in all stations of God by which God reaches all, is something when people are told about might find funny, they mock Mohammad (pbuh&hf) while he is the highest realm of creation, they mock him, while his family is with him, they mock him while he is both the means to the destination and the destination itself.

Turn away from the reminder of the Compassionate.


Indeed in turning away from Mohammad, they were turning way from the reminder to the Compassionate Lord.

If you are truthful.


Indeed the day of judgment as well the rising of the Qaim are two promising threats to humanity that Mohammad (pbuh&hf) is truthful regards.
Quote
mocked before were Messengers.

Indeed Messengers were mocked before regarding similar promises but God delivered the believers.

He only warns by revelation.


This shows the nature of Sunnah was a commentary of Quran, and hence, when he talks about twelve Successors from Qurasyh or thaqalain, all this emphasizing on what is in Quran. The deaf however will never hear the loud cries of either Quran or Sunnah.

Moses and Aaron the distinguisher and a light and reminder


Indeed reminder was sent before, and hence, we see this emphasizing that the family of the reminder are like Aaron who have to untie the knots of Mohammad (pbuh&hf) and spread the knowledge of his heart that were locked due to the propaganda and veiled due to the noise of trying to put away God's light.

Mohammad and Ali go together in Quran, and in proving one, proves the other.

For those who fear.


Indeed we saw Suratal Taha emphasized in what was but a reminder to those who fear, like wise, the reminder is always but a reminder to those who fear, the light is light to those who fear.

Blessed reminder


This is a blessed reminder, meaning, the family of the reminder, is the family of this reminder. And if Mohammad (pbuh) and his followers were ignorant, they would have to turn to another family who were the family of the reminder of their time.

There is no doubt a blessed reminder with a blessed family to go along with it!

And certain we gave Abraham his guidance.


Indeed Abraham was a reminder to God by which he made people "return to themselves".

Return to themselves

The blessed reminder Abraham was a means of people returning to who they truly were and realizing of what they have become.

Pure reasoning.


We see aside from the holy books and the chosen ones, the reminder is something we all have some of, which is proper reasoning. When Abraham reminded them of reasoning they were all connected to, and made them more honest to themselves, this was how he extended his reasoning to his people. "Certainly you know they do not speak".

He and Lut were both delivered to the blessed land.


Indeed God delivered these two and made them a means of deliverance to humanity as the blessed land was blessed for all of humanity. 

And he gave them Isaac and Jacob


This would be were the lineage of guides come from one after another. The blessed family of the reminder of the time.

And we made them leaders who guide by his command.


Then it emphasizes these Prophets aside from revealing revelations, were leaders who guide by God's command. And this role cannot stop but as we see, the family of the reminder are leaders who guide by God's command.

The family of Mohammad are leaders who Guide by God's command just as the family of Abraham, and are the family of the reminder of this time.

And Lut, And Nuh.


Indeed these two were also the means to be delivered in the past.

And Dawood and Sulaiman when they gave judgment.


Indeed Sulaiman was made to undestand it so that it would be a proof of him succeeding David, and that everyone knew he was the most knowledgable and had higher understanding than all people who supposedly attempted to learn the revelation in bani-Israel.

Likewise, the family of the reminder understand the reminder in ways others do not, and so people must turn to them, just as people were required to turn to Sulaiman after Dawood.

And Ayub - and we gave his family and the likes of them with him.


Indeed not only the family of the reminder was with Ayub who like all other Prophets has a chosen family, but the likes of them were also with him. This is showing a spiritual reality, where the Guides of the past are connected to the Guide of time.

And Ismael...etc...


They were all of the patient ones, meaning, the patient ones who God knew would not swerve from his love and be steadfast in worshipping God sincerely, were chosen for the religion of God, the pure exalted ones.

And Yonus, and Zakariya, and so on and so forth.


They were all leaders who Guide by God's command...no doubt the means to God, the means by which people would be reminded of God and recite his revelations properly.

Surely this is your path, one path, and I am your Lord so worship me.


This is indeed showing the reminders families were all really one reminder, they are reminded of the same God, the same path that leads to him, and were calling people to God.

They cut their authority/affair between themselves.


Rather then turning and relying and following the authority of the reminder through it's designated family, they split the affair and authority of his chosen ones among themselves, thereby dividing from the rope of God.


After the reminder the righteous shall inherit it.


So it is clear the reminder here in the scriptures, refers particularly to that of the Quran, and hence the family of the reminder is obviously the family of the revelation of this time, and it doesn't refer back to anyone else.

It's saying indeed all scriptures predicted an end in which the reminders would come to an end, and thereby after the rightoeus would inherit the earth.


Only revealed "There is no God but God" will you then submit?


Indeed in the interior of sending chosen ones as Messengers and Prophets and sealing the reminder by which after the righteous would inherit the earth, and the leaders who guide by his command would be given authority, in the interior of the motive of God telling us to ask the family of the reminder is so that we submit to the only door by which we can worship God and would truly know him.



Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.

Indeed not only the family of the reminder was with Ayub who like all other Prophets has a chosen family, but the likes of them were also with him. This is showing a spiritual reality, where the Guides of the past are connected to the Guide of time.

And Ismael...etc...

They were all of the patient ones, meaning, the patient ones who God knew would not swerve from his love and be steadfast in worshipping God sincerely, were chosen for the religion of God, the pure exalted ones.

And Yonus, and Zakariya, and so on and so forth.


They were all leaders who Guide by God's command...no doubt the means to God, the means by which people would be reminded of God and recite his revelations properly.

Surely this is your path, one path, and I am your Lord so worship me.


This is indeed showing the reminders families were all really one reminder, they are reminded of the same God, the same path that leads to him, and were calling people to God.

They cut their authority/affair between themselves.


Rather then turning and relying and following the authority of the reminder through it's designated family, they split the affair and authority of his chosen ones among themselves, thereby dividing from the rope of God.


After the reminder the righteous shall inherit the earth.


So it is clear the reminder here in the scriptures, refers particularly to that of the Quran, and hence the family of the reminder is obviously the family of the revelation of this time, and it doesn't refer back to anyone else.

It's saying indeed all scriptures predicted an end in which the reminders would come to an end, and thereby after the rightoeus would inherit the earth.


Only revealed "There is no God but God" will you then submit?


Indeed in the interior of sending chosen ones as Messengers and Prophets and sealing the reminder by which after the righteous would inherit the earth, and the leaders who guide by his command would be given authority, in the interior of the motive of God telling us to ask the family of the reminder is so that we submit to the only door by which we can worship God and would truly know him.
Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.
