The Beauty Of Surah Al-Falaq | Nouman Ali Khan
Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak
From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles
And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies.
Some Interesting Note from the Full Tafsir of Al-Falaq
the Word “Fa-laqa” litteraly mean “to rip open something”.
“falaqa” used for the morning because the rays of the morning tear through the darkness and morning comes out. thats why it called “falaq”/ Daybreak
Brother Nouman explain,and i find the Language and the meaning behind the ayah is Really amazing!
Falaq (as mentioned in many arabic lexicons including Taj al Uroos, Lisan al ‘Arab) includes the meaning of Khalq = that which is Created. So Falaq is similar to ‘Created’ in meaning — because all life comes into existence through “tearing out through” something else.
Allah is signifying that He is the Master of birth, of life. Because this tearing open signifies; the birth of the day from the night, the birth of rain tearing from the clouds which gives life to the dead earth — giving it life, providing life food for all living beings — birth of a children, Etc . SubhanAllah!
