Lesson # 962 - Mate of man is his own woman
Lesson # 962 from the Noble Quran
Mate of man is his own woman
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 189 of 206, Section – 24 of
24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofGod, the Beneficent, the
He it is Who did create you from a single soul, and
therefrom did make his mate that he might take rest in her. Then when he
covered her, she bore a light burden, and she passed (unnoticed) with it, but
when it became heavy they cried unto Allah, their Lord, saying: If Thou
givest unto us aright we shall be of the thankful.
Nafsin – (a soul), this word has been passed in the first verse of Surah NISAAA’ (Chapter – 4). Entire human
beings are children of one Father, whose name is “Adam” (peace be upon Him). From
Him Allah Almighty created His wife named Eve (peace be upon Her).
Tagash-shaa – (covered), it is a past tense and the origin of this word is
tagshii which has been derived from gash-yun. Gash-yun means “to cover from above, to spread over, to conceal”. Here;
it aims “The act of sexual intercourse by man with his woman”.
There is a description
regarding creation of human being in this verse. Allah Almighty created the
first mankind “Adam” (peace be upon Him) by His Omnipotence. Then, for his rest
and comfort, He made his mate (woman named Eve) from him (peace be upon Them). After
that, He arranged to originate the lineage of their children be means of the meeting
of men and women together.
commanded: We created the entire humankind from a single soul (Adam – peace be
upon Him), and from his body, We made his wife (Eve – peace be upon her) so
that; he might live accompanying her with rest and peace. Then, birth and lineage
of their children began. At first, man meets to his woman to fulfill his
natural sensual desire. In the beginning, the woman bears a light burden in her
womb and continues her works as usual like sitting, standing, walking and other
period is passed with that burden, the weight of her belly increases, then they
express their wishes before God Almighty: Our Lord! Give unto us aright,
healthy and conducive child, we shall be very thankful to You.
