Why the Bible was written

Some scholars think that Sura al Rahman surah was disclosed to make the non-believers of Quraysh more aware of the word al-Rahman, which means “the All-Beneficent.” This is because when the sixty-first verse of Surah al-Furqan was revealed, which told people to prostrate to the All-Beneficent, they asked,

“What is Rahman?” Then God told the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) about Sura al Rahman. But according to the Shia school of thought Sura al Rahman reveals information about Ahl al-Bayt (a) because Imam Jaffar Al-Sadiq (as) told us so.

Two Seas and Marjaan and Lu’LLu’

According to a hadith told by Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (a.s), the word “al-Bahrain (الْبَحْرَيْنِ)” in Sura al Rahman the verse” مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ يَلْتَقِيَانِ بَيْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخٌ لَّا يَبْغِيَانِ” (He made it look like the two seas meet, but there is a wall in the middle that they can’t cross.) this is about Mola ‘Ali Ibn e Abi Talib (a.s) and holy prophets daughter Syeda tahira Bibi zahra (sla), as well as the words “Lu’lu’ (اللُّؤْلُؤُ)” and “Marjan (الْمَرْجَانُ)” in the verse “.” (He creates both pearls and coral from them.)

Imam Al-Hasan (a.s) and Imam Al-Husayn (a.s) have been said to be the ones who are stated as those gems [15]. [16] you can see this hadith in several Islamic books of both fiqaa e jaffaria kutab and artesunate or other school of thought, such as Majma’ al-Bayan by al-Tabrisi, and Sunni exegesis books, like Dur al-Manthur by al-Suyuti,

Surah Al Rahman Famous Verse

“ هَلْ جَزَاءُ الْإِحْسَانِ إِلَّا الْإِحْسَانُ ”

“Is the reward for being good anything but good?”

God said in earlier verses of Sura al Rahman that those who are afraid to stand before their God will be rewarded with two heavens full of countless blessings of Allah almighty. In this text, it says that all those who are good are rewarded by God because they are good, and that those who are good are also rewarded because they are good.

Based on what Imam Jaffar Al-Sadiq (a.s) said, this verse of Sura al Rahman is about people who don’t believe and people who do believe but have done bad things. If someone does someone else a favor, he should pay it back, and the most effective way to do that is for the compensation to be even bigger than the favor.

Because of the action and the response are on the same level, the action is better because it started the good deed. So, for the action and the response to have the same value, the reaction should be bigger than the action.
