Light: it shines, guides and nurtures.
The Prophet (PBUH) is our source of constant guidance. The Qur'an refers to him metaphorically as ‘Siraj Munira’. Like the sun, the illumination of his message guides not only those who were present with him but still reaches us today.
Unlike the sun which is constant, the moon (like the believer) goes through many phases. It does not produce its own light, but rather, its noor is a reflection of the sun. When it faces the sun, it shines at its brightest, and when it turns away, it is lost in darkness, ‘like the old date stalk’. But from its darkest point, it shines again.
Reminders are for the heart and must be repeated. Surah Ya-sin is the heart of the Qur’aan. It is a reminder from Allah of the reward for those who accept the true message. A reminder to take lessons from those who rejected him in the past and the fate they face. A reminder to those who question life after death.
…To reflect and ponder on the signs around us.
